CAIR has gone from being an arm of the Muslim Brotherhood to an arm of the DNC.
(WASHINGTON, D.C., 11/21/2014) – The Washington-based Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the nation’s largest Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization, today called President Obama’s announced executive action on immigration a “praiseworthy” first step to address the nation’s crumbling immigration system.
“Along with temporary deportation relief for almost half of the undocumented immigrants in the United States, CAIR calls on the president and Congress to adopt comprehensive immigration reform that provides a framework for all 11 million U.S. residents seeking legal status and eventual citizenship.
“In his national address last night from the White House, President Obama said: ‘If you’ve been in America for more than five years; if you have children who are American citizens or legal residents; if you register, pass a criminal background check, and you’re willing to pay your fair share of taxes — you’ll be able to apply to stay in this country temporarily without fear of deportation. You can come out of the shadows and get right with the law. That’s what this deal is.’
“The president’s decision to provide deportation relief comes at a time when the Republican-controlled U.S. House of Representatives has failed to pass a comprehensive immigration reform package that was not broken down into piecemeal measures that would result in the increase of racial profiling, unconstitutional detention and militarization of the U.S. border.
“The president’s actions are praiseworthy in the face of strong Republican opposition to adopt meaningful immigration reform. Disappointingly, these actions should have come years sooner. Deportations in President Obama’s administration are at an all-time high, and half of those deported have no criminal record or only minor offenses, separating millions of hard working families seeking a path towards citizenship. We hope that this executive action will put a stop to such harmful and needless deportations.
More war on Christians.

NAIROBI, Kenya — Suspected Islamic extremists from Somalia hijacked a bus in Kenya’s north and killed 28 non-Muslims on board after they had been singled out from the rest of the passengers, police officials said Saturday.
The bus traveling to the capital Nairobi with 60 passengers was hijacked at dawn Saturday about 50 kilometers (31 miles) from the town Mandera near Kenya’s border with Somalia, said two police officers.
The police insisted on anonymity because Kenya’s police chief ordered that officers should not speak to the media.
Some of the dead were public servants who were heading to Nairobi for the Christmas vacation, the officers said. About 20 gunmen ordered all the passengers out of the bus and separated those who appeared to be non-Muslims from the rest and shot them at close range, the officers said.

ST. LOUIS, Mo. – Students at Saint Louis University were handed a communist leaflet as they walked between classes Wednesday afternoon that declared “if the murdering pig walks, AMERIKKKA must be brought to a halt.”
The leaflet was distributed by two individuals associated with the Revolutionary Communist Party on Grand Boulevard, a busy street that intersects with the university’s quad and splits the two ends of the urban campus.
“If the decision is announced at night, the next day should be a day of NO BUSINESS AS USUAL at schools,” the leaflet stated. “Buildings on campus should be taken over, classes should become teach-ins on police murder of Black people. All this and more should be done.”
Its author is listed as Carl Dix, national spokesperson for the Revolutionary Communist Party, USA. It called for individuals to “pour into the streets” if Officer Darren Wilson is not indicted.revolutionnewspaper
“Major streets and highways should be blocked and traffic should be unable to proceed on bridges and tunnels,” the leaflet reads. “Professional athletes should join the response by refusing to play. Musicians should cancel appearances.”

President Obama has quietly ordered an expanded role for US troops in Afghanistan through 2015, including permission to target Taliban fighters in the war-torn country.
Earlier plans had limited US soldiers to counterterrorism strikes against al Qaeda after this year.
The decision won’t affect the total number of US troops in Afghanistan, which will be about 9,800 by year’s end and half that by the end of 2015.
The earlier plan would have only allowed attacks on Taliban if they threatened US forces or gave direct support to al Qaeda.
MSNBC announced Friday morning that it hired the White House’s associate communications director to head up the network’s press shop.
Starting December 8, Rachel Racusen will be the cable news outlet’s vice president of communications. “I’m thrilled to add Rachel to our senior team. She has great experience, she’s creative, strategic and passionate about our brand,” said network chief Phil Griffin. “She’ll be a tremendous asset to the network.”
According to MSNBC’s press release, during her White House tenure, Racusen “played a key role in devising press strategies for the President’s domestic events and major policy announcements, including the State of the Union address, Climate Action Plan, the White House Working Families Summit, the economic agenda, and in responding to the situation in Ferguson and the Ebola crisis.”
Hillary Clinton now on immigration order: "This is about people's lives, people, I would venture to guess, who served us tonight."

While speaking at a swanky event Friday night in New York City, Hillary Clinton speculated about the immigration status of the people serving food and beverages at the gala.
Clinton made the remarks at the New York Historical Society, according to MSNBC reporter Alex Seitz-Wald. She endorsed President Obama’s recent move to grant amnesty to 5 million illegal immigrants.
“I think the president took an historic step and I support it,” Clinton said, according to the Associated Press.

The Department of Homeland Security has just released new “Policies for the Apprehension, Detention, and Removal of Undocumented Immigrants.” Designed to fill in the details after President Obama’s announcement that at least four million currently illegal immigrants will be given work permits, Social Security numbers, and protection from deportation, the DHS guidelines are instructions for the nation’s immigration and border security officers as they administer the president’s directive.
The new priorities are striking. On the tough side, the president wants U.S. immigration authorities to go after terrorists, felons, and new illegal border crossers. On the not-so-tough side, the administration views convicted drunk drivers, sex abusers, drug dealers, and gun offenders as second-level enforcement priorities. An illegal immigrant could spend up to a year in prison for a violent crime and still not be a top removal priority for the Obama administration.
The guidelines say Priority One aliens “must be prioritized” for deportation unless they qualify for asylum or unless there are “compelling and exceptional” factors that indicate the alien is not a threat.
Priority Two offenders, whose cases are less urgent then criminals in Priority One, include the following:
aliens convicted of a “significant misdemeanor,” which for these purposes is an offense of domestic violence; sexual abuse or exploitation; burglary; unlawful possession or use of a firearm; drug distribution or trafficking; or driving under the influence; or if not an offense listed above, one for which the individual was sentenced to time in custody of 90 days or more (the sentence must involve time to be served in custody, and does not include a suspended sentence)

Two men were arrested by the FBI in a sting operation for allegedly attempting to purchase explosives to be used in Ferguson protests, CBS News reported Friday night.
According to CBS News, the men were arrested Thursday for attempting to purchase the materials for pipe bombs.
The individuals were arraigned Friday and are allegedly members of the New Black Panthers, according to CBS News.
Meanwhile, St. Louis Today reports the men have been indicted on weapons charges for allegedly making purchases of two handguns at the Cabela’s sporting goods store in Hazelwood. The publication names Brandon Orlando Baldwin and Olajuwon Davis to be the two detainees.
According to the indictment, between November 1 and 13 the men acquired two Hi-Point .45 ACP pistols but the weapons were intended to be handed over to someone else.
A police source also said the investigation leading to the arrest spanned several months. Local and federal authorities executed search warrants at two residences in north St. Louis County. The source told St. Louis Today that the raids produced information that the detained had planned to obtain illegal weapons to do harm to law enforcement and the public.
After the arrest, one of the leaders of the New Black Panther Party, Chawn Kweli, posted a message on his blog blaming the operation on Counter Intelligence Program (COINTELPRO).
“The wicked enemies of black people use lies and deceit to confuse the masses and misdirect the legitimate aspirations of the black power movement,” Kweli wrote. “As seen, in St. Louis, Mo, with the arrest of Chairman Olajawon Ali, and other activist ahead of the decision on whether to indict Officer Darren Wilson for killing Mike Brown – or not!”
Just a note, they have both been identified on the New Black Panther site as Brandon Baldwin Muhammad and Olajuwon Davis Ali, indicating they are both Muslims.

Perhaps the most galling line in last night’s speech:
“I know some of the critics of this action call it amnesty. Well, it’s not. Amnesty is the immigration system we have today — millions of people who live here without paying their taxes or playing by the rules.”
Yes, but before last night, they feared deportation. Which is the opposite of an amnesty! Obama said this in a speech right after he boasted of increasing the number of deportations of illegal immigrants for criminal offenses.

The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) and the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) are endorsing President Obama’s amnesty for illegal immigrants, as they endeavor to maintain the fiction that the Democratic Party is aligned with the needs of the black community and maintain their own positions within the political power structure.
In reality, the failure of these organizations to examine the repercussions of the Executive Order on the black community is one more piece of evidence that black so-called “leaders” only care about the black community in order to keep the “racist meme” alive.

BARACK OBAMA: America is not a nation that accepts the hypocrisy of workers who mow our lawns, make our beds, clean out bedpans, with no chance ever to get right with the law.

Students in Wisconsin have taken to social media to blast Michelle Obama for their Thanksgiving themed lunches that feature a brown mystery mush.
The brown paste was served at Richland Center High School in Wisconsin and students earlier this month and they didn’t find the meal to be especially appetizing.
A student named Hunter Whitney posted photos of the brown mush and a single red apple along with the caption, ‘Had a very #healthylunch today. The apple definitely made up for the ‘mystery mush’ #ThanksMichelleObama.’
They claim “police brutality is modern lynching,” or something.

Outside a St. Louis, Mo., courthouse famous for its gruesome history, three protesters gathered on Friday to staged a mock lynching in advance of a grand jury decision in the fatal police shooting of an unarmed black teenager.
Around noon on Friday, three protesters bound their hands with rope and pulled nooses around their necks at the base of a leafless tree mere yards from the steps of the St. Louis Old Courthouse. The actions of the protesters were intended to raise awareness about a harrowing, albeit controversial, statistic: that every 28 hours a black man is killed by a police officer in the United States.
The three activists, who identified themselves as T-Dubb-O, Rika Tyler, and Rae, told Free Thought Project writer Cassandra Fairbanks that the action was intended to spark conversation while a grand jury in St. Louis nears a decision on whether to indict Darren Wilson, the Ferguson police officer that on Aug. 9, 2014 shot to death unarmed 18-year-old Michael Brown.

The House of Representatives, spearheaded by a growing Republican majority, sued the Obama administration on Friday over its implementation of President Barack Obama’s health care law, saying he had overstepped his legal authority in carrying out the program.
The case was assigned to Judge Rosemary M. Collyer, who was appointed to her post by President George W. Bush in 2003. The Department of Justice, which will defend the case on behalf of the Treasury and Health and Human Services Departments, has 60 days to file a response.
GOP lawmakers filed the lawsuit in federal district court in Washington the morning after Obama announced unilateral executive actions to expand protections for millions of immigrants who came to the U.S. illegally.
While Republicans complained that Obama had unconstitutionally exceeded his powers with those actions, the suit filed Friday did not address immigration.
Never let a (self-made) crisis go to waste.
I want to tell you why I’m taking action on immigration.
There’s no disagreement in Washington that our system is badly broken. That’s why a bipartisan majority in the Senate passed comprehensive immigration reform. That was more than 500 days ago, but we’re still waiting for the House to hold a vote.
Every day we delay, our country and our economy suffer. Millions of families go on living in the shadows, without a chance to pay their taxes or do what’s necessary to get on the right side of the law.
So, just like every president in the last 70 years — Republican and Democrat — I’m taking steps in my power to help fix this broken immigration system.
If you agree that we can’t wait any longer for meaningful action on immigration, join Americans across the country, including supporters of OFA, who are standing up to fight for reform.
Some voices in this debate want to make this issue about me, so I want to be clear about this:
The actions I’m taking today are no substitute for comprehensive reform. Only Congress can finish the job.
But I’m not just going to wait for that day to come. The American people expect solutions from the people they send to Washington. Today, I’m doing what I can to take common-sense steps forward.
Add your name if you’re ready to fight for reform:

The Obama administration admitted Thursday that it over-reported the number of people who signed up for medical coverage under the President’s signature health care law by double-counting, in its initial reported numbers, hundreds of thousands of people who enrolled in dental insurance plans.
Health and Human Services Secretary Sylvia M. Burwell acknowledged the error on social media after a Bloomberg News report alleged that the administration had included about 400,000 dental plans in numbers it reported for enrollments under the Affordable Care Act.
“The mistake we made is unacceptable,” Burwell said on Twitter. “I will be communicating that clearly throughout the (department).”
A White House spokesman later told the Associated Press that the administration had mistakenly over-reported Obamacare enrollment numbers by about 400,000 by double-counting consumers who had purchased both dental coverage and medical insurance coverage separately through Healthcare.gov and various state insurance marketplaces created under the law.
Another one bites the dust.
A London man has been killed fighting for Islamic State (Isis), social media accounts linked to the extremist group have said.
Abu Abdullah al-Habashi was said to have died in fighting in and around the Syrian border town of Kobani.
He was born into a Christian family of Eritrean heritage and converted to Islam. The 20-year-old became a human propaganda machine for Isis, appearing in a video urging Britons to travel to Syria, another vowing the black flag of Isis would one day fly over the White House, and also appeared in a BBC interview.
He adopted the name Abu Abdullah al-Britani, and in one photo was pictured next to the corpse of a decapitated Syrian soldier.
At least 27 Britons have died fighting in Syria, and it is estimated that about 500 Britons may have joined Isis despite pleas for them not to.

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama made some notable omissions Thursday night in his remarks about the unilateral actions he’s taking on immigration.
A look at his statements and how they compare with the facts:
OBAMA: “It does not grant citizenship, or the right to stay here permanently, or offer the same benefits that citizens receive – only Congress can do that. All we’re saying is we’re not going to deport you.”
THE FACTS: He’s saying, and doing, more than that. The changes also will make those covered eligible for work permits, allowing them to be employed in the country legally and compete with citizens and legal residents for better-paying jobs.
OBAMA: “Although this summer, there was a brief spike in unaccompanied children being apprehended at our border, the number of such children is now actually lower than it’s been in nearly two years.”
THE FACTS: The numbers certainly surged this year, but it was more than a “brief spike.” The number of unaccompanied children apprehended at the border has been on the rise since the 2011 budget year. That year about 16,000 children were found crossing the border alone. In 2012, the Border Patrol reported more than 24,000 children, followed by more than 38,800 in 2013. In the last budget year, more than 68,361 children were apprehended.
