“For the kids”. We hear this all the time and it’s never been less true then now. Charged and found guilty under the RICO law. Does anyone really think this is an isolated incident? via American Thinker
Thirty-five Atlanta educators in all were indicted in 2013 on charges including racketeering, making false statements, and theft. Many pleaded guilty before the trial, and some of them testified at the months-long affair. On April 1, 2015, eleven defendants were convicted of racketeering and falsifying test results to collect bonuses or keep their jobs (some claimed that they were threatened with losing their jobs if they did not participate in the cheating). Superintendent Beverly Hall, the alleged ringleader, is reported to have received up to $500,000 in payouts. On April 14, 2015, ten of the eleven educators (Superintendent Beverly Hall died a month before) were sentenced to up to 20 years in prison (including probation time).
Please, make it stop. “Wear a hijab to school day” didn’t go quite as planned in a school in OH. Embracing misogyny is no way to teach about diversity. via Hot Air
Intense criticism has prompted an Ohio high school’s principal to cancel a student event in which girls would celebrate diversity by spending a day wearing a Muslim headscarf. Mason High School Mindy McCarty-Stewart also issued an apology in an email Thursday to district families, saying the intent of the April 23 student-led event was meant to be positive, the Cincinnati Enquirer reported.

When you ignore the reality of Islam’s oppressive 8th century ideas about women and celebrate one of the major symbols of that oppression — the hijab — you give aid and comfort to the very people and ideas you are supposed to be fighting.
Global Citizen Earth Day was a resounding success. All those greenies had a great time at a concert on the National Mall. via Twitchy
As Twitchy reported earlier, plenty of celebrities fired up their private jets Saturday morning en route to the Global Citizen 2015 Earth Day concert on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. A massive crowd turned out for a handful of musical acts, and as we predicted, left behind quite a global footprint of their own.
One hundred years….Obama cowardice. via Just One Minute
But this one was particularly likely to add fuel to the historical debate over the characterization of the genocide, which began in 1915 and took place over several years during World War I and the breakup of the Ottoman Empire. The debate gained momentum on Sunday after Pope Francis referred to the event as “the first genocide of the 20th century.”
Hillary in 2012
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Thursday said the recognition of the Armenian Genocide by the US “opens a door that is a very dangerous one to go through.” This is the same Hillary Clinton who, four years ago, pledged that she would recognize the Genocide as President of the United States.
Responding to a question from a participant of a Town Hall Meeting on Thursday, who asked why the US does not recognize the Genocide, Clinton characterized the Armenian Genocide as an historical issue and not a political one.
“I think it’s fair to say that this has always been viewed, and I think properly so, as a matter of historical debate and conclusions rather than political. And I think that is the right posture for the United States Government to be in, because whatever the terrible event might be or the high emotions that it represents, to try to use government power to resolve historical issues, I think, opens a door that is a very dangerous one to go through. So the issue is a very emotional one; I recognize that and I have great sympathy for those who are just so incredibly passionate about it,” Clinton told the audience.
Is Clinton someone you really want to vote for? As always, political expediency is much more important than the historical truth. What else would she do or say for political expediency? Who else would she appease? We already know the answer, Benghazi. Leopards never change their spots, neither will Hillary.
Clinton stopped at a Chipotle in OH, no one recognized her. How “inevitable” is she really?
Must have been the sunglasses. via Daily Mail
The LSM will be running with the “inevitable” meme for the next year. After all, they have handpicked her to be the next WON, to break that glass ceiling for the sake of women everywhere because….it’s her turn and she has lady parts. Two great reasons to vote for a candidate. (insert sarc tag here) Mostly the LSM and other Hillary backers want to see Bill Clinton back in the White House. This would be the only way that could happen. (you have to think like a Democrat to get this) It would also be the only way Chelsea could hold down an actual job.
I am sorry, but I have no patience with Chelsea’s progressivism and its contrast with her hauteur, her luxurious lifestyle, her high-paying glamorous jobs brought her way by family connections, and her conspicuous lack of achievement or creativity in any of those jobs. Her debut as a $600,000-a-year rookie correspondent at NBC was downright embarrassing. She didn’t last very long in the offices of McKinsey & Company, where only the hardest-charging, brainiest associates survive.
“She’s fought children and families all her career”. So has every other Democrat, they just don’t say it. Not to worry, the LSM will overcompensate for any and all gaffes. It’s their job to prop Hillary (and Bill) up.
“Every box was checked,” Meet the Press moderator Chuck Todd glowed. “They put out the campaign memo that said ‘We’re going to be a united team, there’s no back biting.’ The video had every part of Democratic coalition represented.”
Indeed, Vox went so far as to itemize the members of the Democratic Party’s “Coalition of the Ascendant” who were represented in Clinton’s video. Vox’s Matt Yglesias didn’t see white collar workers versus service professionals, homeowners versus renters, married or unmarried, childless or parents represented in that video. Merely skin color, gender, and sexuality:…snip
“Then we found out about the road trip and I thought, oh, there’s some spontaneity; it actually felt as if she was having fun,” Todd added, still gushing over Clinton’s campaign debut. “The road trip gives it some humanity. That’s what you really needed at the end. So you throw that in there, you take a B+ launch and make it an A.”
Notice on the much touted road trip Clinton hasn’t really spoken to anyone. She wants to be the “champion” of the middle class but, doesn’t want to hear what any of them have to say, just photo ops to show the country how much she cares. If she honestly cared, she would have told the country the truth about Benghazi. Traveling in a well appointed van to Iowa, what difference does that make? It’s still all about her and the Dem Party line, no more, no less. She is desperate for her coronation and will say anything to get there.

The Gods of the Copybook Headings
AS I PASS through my incarnations in every age and race,
I make my proper prostrations to the Gods of the Market Place.
Peering through reverent fingers I watch them flourish and fall,
And the Gods of the Copybook Headings, I notice, outlast them all.
We were living in trees when they met us. They showed us each in turn
That Water would certainly wet us, as Fire would certainly burn:
But we found them lacking in Uplift, Vision and Breadth of Mind,
So we left them to teach the Gorillas while we followed the March of Mankind.
We moved as the Spirit listed. They never altered their pace,
Being neither cloud nor wind-borne like the Gods of the Market Place,
But they always caught up with our progress, and presently word would come
That a tribe had been wiped off its icefield, or the lights had gone out in Rome.
With the Hopes that our World is built on they were utterly out of touch,
They denied that the Moon was Stilton; they denied she was even Dutch;
They denied that Wishes were Horses; they denied that a Pig had Wings;
So we worshipped the Gods of the Market Who promised these beautiful things.
When the Cambrian measures were forming, They promised perpetual peace.
They swore, if we gave them our weapons, that the wars of the tribes would cease.
But when we disarmed They sold us and delivered us bound to our foe,
And the Gods of the Copybook Headings said: “Stick to the Devil you know.”
On the first Feminian Sandstones we were promised the Fuller Life
(Which started by loving our neighbour and ended by loving his wife)
Till our women had no more children and the men lost reason and faith,
And the Gods of the Copybook Headings said: “The Wages of Sin is Death.”
In the Carboniferous Epoch we were promised abundance for all,
By robbing selected Peter to pay for collective Paul;
But, though we had plenty of money, there was nothing our money could buy,
And the Gods of the Copybook Headings said: “If you don’t work you die.”
Then the Gods of the Market tumbled, and their smooth-tongued wizards withdrew
And the hearts of the meanest were humbled and began to believe it was true
That All is not Gold that Glitters, and Two and Two make Four
And the Gods of the Copybook Headings limped up to explain it once more.
As it will be in the future, it was at the birth of Man
There are only four things certain since Social Progress began.
That the Dog returns to his Vomit and the Sow returns to her Mire,
And the burnt Fool’s bandaged finger goes wabbling back to the Fire;
And that after this is accomplished, and the brave new world begins
When all men are paid for existing and no man must pay for his sins,
As surely as Water will wet us, as surely as Fire will burn,
The Gods of the Copybook Headings with terror and slaughter return!”
Seems appropriate for the Age of Obama.
It isn’t productive, doesn’t have any solutions, just a lot of angst and pseudo-outrage. There is no having a conversation with the left. They become outraged when you point out facts, it takes the air right out of them, and they become more outraged that facts are getting in the way of their beliefs. The left doesn’t understand the difference between “beliefs” and “facts”. They need “enemies” to justify their outrage. That level of never ending temper tantrums has to be exhausting.
It is quickly becoming a “style of politics” that screams out for groupthink and casts everyone else as the “enemy”. The outrage is part of the every day news cycle, journalists (ahem) are also outraged by outrage on the left. They do so love to pile on the outrage to make the outraged group seem legitimate. Even our pols are outraged. Governors are outraged by a state, not their state, passing a law which would give a business accused of discrimination their day in court instead of being investigated and fined by coercive government. They haven’t read the bill, but outrage doesn’t need facts, just a belief.
Obama is the head of the perpetual outrage people. When hasn’t he been outraged over something? (it’s an incredibly long list of outrages) But, when he becomes outraged heads roll and, I do mean that literally. Think Libya, Egypt, Syria, Iraq, lots of heads rolling in those countries. His outrage has hit all of us domestically too. Our police forces all over the US have targets on their backs now due to Obama’s selective outrage. He tells Hispanics to “fight their enemies”, that would be everyone who isn’t Hispanic. He has to keep groups outraged, it’s the shiny object he uses to distract.
Most of the outrage that takes place is in the bright blue model where most of the outraged live or travel to so everyone knows they’re outraged. How dare anyone have a nice brunch with their family, can’t you see how outraged they are with you? It doesn’t matter whether you are complicit in the latest outrage or not. You have to feel and know their outrage and be silent. All the while, the perpetually outraged doesn’t see the implosion coming, they are starting to eat their own. Progressives have created a Frankenstein
These are miserable people, and very few of us would voluntarily spend any more time with them than we must: The p.c. style of politics has one serious, possibly fatal drawback: It is exhausting. Claims of victimhood that are useful within the left-wing subculture may alienate much of America. The movement’s dour puritanism can move people to outrage, but it may prove ill suited to the hopeful mood required of mass politics. Nor does it bode well for the movement’s longevity that many of its allies are worn out. “It seems to me now that the public face of social liberalism has ceased to seem positive, joyful, human, and freeing,” confessed the progressive writer Freddie deBoer. “There are so many ways to step on a land mine now, so many terms that have become forbidden, so many attitudes that will get you cast out if you even appear to hold them. I’m far from alone in feeling that it’s typically not worth it to engage, given the risks.” Goldber wrote recently about people “who feel emotionally savaged by their involvement in [online feminism] — not because of sexist trolls, but because of the slashing righteousness of other feminists.” Former Feministing editor Samhita Mukhopadhyay told her, “Everyone is so scared to speak right now.”
Obama was at the City Club in Cleveland and made a total ass of himself. Reaching for straws his new “suggestion” is for a law to make it mandatory to vote. According to the Constitutional scholar, that would be the only way to even things out when it came to the enormous amount of cash flow in the elections. He looked and sounded like a first year high school kid on a freshman debate team, unsure and gawky. Obama has become a major embarrassment and his lackeys and the lapdog media can’t change that perception. As he awkwardly explained his reasoning there was no applause from the audience. Not a single sound was heard. It was beyond pathetic. He should stop going off TOTUS since he is not a natural speaker and doesn’t know how to talk to a crowd. Other than deciding we should have only the rights dictated by him, he spent his time whining about how the R-words were being mean to him. The AFL-CIO, which is pretty much behind any Dem who is still breathing, wasn’t charmed by BO either. http://www.cleveland.com/open/index.ssf/2015/03/president_barack_obama_brings_1.html The comments are more interesting than the article.
Huggy feely MO also had her awkward moments while explaining to the Japanese why it’s important to educate their girls. Her first greet and meet with the Emperor was more than a little strange. She didn’t know whether to bow, curtsy or shake hands. So, in her own inimitable way she did all three…at once. Made for an interesting encounter.
The same kind of tact is seen when she greeted the First Lady of Japan. They are definitely not the huggy feely type of people, feeling it is too impolite to grab at another person. The grimace on the FLOJ pretty much tells the story. Why does that loony woman have to be so grabby? You would think she would learn protocol when visiting a foreign country.
Why the hell would any Judge believe anything the DOJ said? It’s evident they do what they want in spite of injunctions and lie to cover up their illegal activities. from Breitbart
The U.S. Government lied to a federal judge, misrepresented facts and illegally gave 100,081 illegal aliens immigration status despite a pending lawsuit and an injunction. That is the argument that attorneys representing Texas and more than two dozen other states made. During the heated court hearing Andrew Hanen, a U.S. District Court Judge, said that the apparent violation had made him look like an idiot since he initially believed the U.S. Government.
Deception is the way they do business in the Department of Injustice.
You must have heard about the EPA deciding that guests are using waaaay too much water in hotel rooms. They have a fix for that, monitoring water usage.
In the view of Big Government specialists, you are usually the problem when they address any challenge. And since you are the nail and they are the hammer, it’s their job to correct your behavior. We can only wonder how many more grants such as this one are floating around out there.
Well, wonder no more there is another grant “floating around out there” to study how backyard barbecues are destroying the planet. The EPA will be coming for the hot tubs soon, the next scourge of pollution.

The White House has lost and the R-words in the Senate have won. No matter what the lapdog media says, Cotton was no fool when making it very clear what clout the Senate had in regards to a non-binding agreement with any country. Liberals were “outraged”, their usual stance, calling the 47 Senators “traitors” and other sundry nastiness including a petition to have them brought up on charges of treason. But, that letter let the cat out of the bag. The plan all along was to use the UN Security Council to make an end run around the Senate. What has been called a “bilateral deal” is nothing more than a ploy to have this deal backed up by a UN Security resolution which the Mullahs felt would bind the US to the so called “treaty”. If anyone thinks the White House wasn’t involved in this ploy, think again. It is exactly what they were planning on doing. Got to admire those Senators that signed the Cotton letter. From Breitbart….
Secretary of State John Kerry said that Cotton’s letter was “unconstitutional” and that “they cannot change an executive agreement.” He continued by saying that the letter was “unprecedented, unprecedented. …It’s false information and directly calculated to interfere, and basically say, ‘Don’t negotiate with them, you’ve got to negotiate with 535 members of Congress.’”
Of course, it is not unprecedented for Congress to involve itself in foreign policy in precisely the way that Cotton and 46 other Republican senators did. And Barack Obama reportedly contacted Iran through back channels before his election to encourage them not to cut a deal with President George W. Bush; he’d be much more helpful to the mullahs after his inevitable election.
Now the Obama administration has already removed Iran from the list of terrorists. See how “helpful” he is to the Mullahs?
“Many people are already making plans for Iran’s integration into the regional and world economy, particularly the Europeans and the Asians, who see Iran as an unprecedented opportunity to do business,” said Dubai-based geopolitical analyst Theodore Karasik. “Because the country’s infrastructure is literally 30 years behind, every sector or commodity is open … Iran is already preparing for this.”
And that’s how you bring an economy, ours and the EU, back to life again. Human Rights abuses and terrorism be damned. That is some huge ass kissing! Dissidents are criticizing Obama and sending letters smuggled out of Iran.
“When the people of Iran asked you to support them against the tyranny of the Shia clerics over five years ago you, the president of the most powerful country on earth, were secretly writing letters to the dictator of Iran,” he writes in the letter, which was smuggled out of Iran by human rights activists and provided to the Foundation for Democracy in Iran, an advocacy group.
Obama’s outreach has only empowered Ali Khamenei, Iran’s supreme leader, writes Tabarzadi, who says he shares a prison cell with Saeed Abedini.
“In June 2009, as Khamenei ruthlessly ordered his paramilitary forces to kill people on the streets and on university campuses, imprisoning and torturing journalists, intellectuals, the young and the old mercilessly, your friendly communications with the tyrant of Iran continued in the name of the people of the United States, ignoring the human rights of the people of Iran,” the letter states. “You helped Khamenei to continue his Islamic tyranny in the name of Allah and Islam.”
“The Islamic clerics have taken our nation hostage to their fanatical Islamic tyranny,” he adds. “In 2009 when the people of Iran loudly and clearly asked for your support for their freedom and sovereignty, you ignored us and empowered the tyrants to imprison, torture, and kill us.”
Speaking of backstabbing, who doesn’t think Obama and Val-Jar didn’t set Clinton up. They knew she had the “private e-mail server” and certainly didn’t mention that they would not accept mail from that particular account. They admitted that e-mail was sent to Obama from that particular address. Does anyone honestly believe it wasn’t noticed? That is the hole card to keep Clinton out of the race in 2016. If that doesn’t work there are the rumors emanating from the White House of “foreign donations” which may be a conflict of interest. Clinton certainly dug her own hole by trusting Obama who never had the intention of backing her in the 2016 Presidential race. She got sucked in by her own ego and now has been left to twist in the wind. Wonder how she feels about spewing the White House talking points on Benghazi now. While I don’t support Clinton, it’s very unsettling to watch the unethical behavior of those who claim to be our superiors in every way use these type of thug tactics. The White House is denying the leaks but, we all know how they operate in the age of Obama.
While Obama is meddling in the 2016 elections, his lackeys are busy, again, meddling in the ME. Israeli elections to be exact. Breaking the law is something Obama and his lackeys are not concerned about. After all laws are for the little people. Free Beacon has an account of their illegal activities.
The PeaceWorks Network Foundation—a nonprofit linked to Obama campaign figures and also known as OneVoice—was identified in a January letter authored by U.S. lawmakers as having funneled money to campaign-related activities in the upcoming election despite being incorporated as a 501(c)(3) organization. Such organizations are forbidden from engaging in foreign or domestic political campaign activities.
PeaceWorks moved to create a new organization that could engage in such electoral activities after the letter was issued, new documents obtained by the Free Beacon show. The new organization, named PeaceWorks Action Inc., was incorporated in Delaware in February 2015.
However, multiple sources familiar with the controversy said the establishment of that new organization would not shield the earlier activities of the original 501(c)(3) organization from U.S. law.
In my view Obama deserves all the disdain that can be heaped upon him. He makes the US look petty and small and, is the worse pResident this country has ever voted in to the highest office of our land.
The Revolting Truth
We are coming o Rome. Islamic state threatens to throw homosexuals from the leaning tower of “pizza”.
Politicalization of genocide. Susan Rice is complicit on more then one occasion.
Indeed, Madeleine Albright, then the American Ambassador to the UN, opposed leaving even this tiny UN force. She also pressured other countries “to duck, as the death toll leapt from thousands to tens of thousands to hundreds of thousands … the absolute low point in her career as a stateswoman.”
In a 2001 article published in The Atlantic, Samantha Power, author of the Pulitzer-Prize winning A Problem from Hell who is now Rice’s successor as American Ambassador to the United Nations, referred to Rice and her colleagues in the Clinton Administration as Bystanders to Genocide. She quotes Rice in her 2002 book as saying, “If we use the word ‘genocide’ and are seen as doing nothing, what will be the effect on the November.
How cold blooded and calculating can any human being be?
That Rice would have brought up the midterm elections as a more important consideration than stopping the mass murder of so many men, women, and children that their bodies were damming the rivers of Rwanda is one of the most heartbreaking pronouncements ever uttered by American official.
But she did not stop there.
Rice then joined Madeline Albright, Anthony Lake, and Warren Christopher as part of a coordinated effort not only to impede UN action to stop the Rwandan genocide but to minimize public opposition to American inaction by removing words like “genocide” and “ethnic cleansing” from government communications on the subject.
“Never again”, for the Democrats, has turned into a huge “never mind”. I guess #black lives only matter in politics than genocide when Rice was in the Clinton Administration and now in the Obama Administration. Asking anyone to vote Democrat is asking them to support genocide on a massive scale, over and over again. Don’t think for one second Hillary wasn’t aware of this either.
Egypt has finally made their move…declares Hamas a terrorist org.
“It has been proven without any doubt that the movement has committed acts of sabotage, assassinations and the killing of innocent civilians and members of the armed forces and police in Egypt,” the court wrote, according to state news agency MENA.
The ruling said that Hamas’ fighters had used heavy weapons against the army, and that the group was colluding with the Muslim Brotherhood, which Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi has described as the root of extremism. Morsi belonged to the Brotherhood.
“It has been also ascertained with documents that (Hamas) has carried out bombings that have taken lives and destroyed institutions and targeted civilians and the armed forces personnel,” the ruling said. “This movement works for the interests of the terrorist Brotherhood organization.”
On its official website, Hamas called the decision a “shocking and dangerous” one that targeted the Palestinian people.
Here’s a suggestion to the Palestinians, stop killing Israelis and Egyptians. That’s why there is a wall between you and them on both sides of Gaza.
According to Kerry Moscow has been lying to his face but, we already knew that. Other liars are located in Iran. Yes, that Iran that Kerry is also negotiating with, whose foreign minister keeps screaming and shouting in Kerry’s face during the ongoing nuclear proliferation talks. Since 2006 there have been rumors of a secret facility built near Tehran at a military base located on Army Boulevard. Looks like the jig is up and the secret is out. Pictures of the facility have been smuggled out of Iran and into the hands of the NCRI. One picture shows a 6″ thick lead lined door leading into the underground facility. Something tells me the State Dept and Obama will do their best to keep this as quiet as possible. After all Obama’s legacy is far too important to insist this be investigated. Maybe Congress will get off their compliant asses to insist on sanctions. The other news is Iran has smuggled at least 1 billion dollars of US bank notes into the country.
An Iranian government official with knowledge of how the dollars were obtained said front companies had “mushroomed” in Dubai to facilitate payments to Iran.
The use of multiple front companies, which bought dollars from currency traders in Dubai and Iraq, was preferred as it concealed the overall size of the dollar purchasing operation, the Iranian and Western sources said. Front companies operate at arm’s length from the Iranian government or state-backed organizations, the sources said.
Suitcases full of dollars were carried to Iran from Dubai, and sometimes Turkey, the Iranian government official said. Groups of three or four couriers would usually fly first or business class, the official said.
In return for dollars, the front companies were paid in United Arab Emirates dirhams or oil, the Iranian and Western sources said.
A report last year by the U.N. Security Council’s Panel of Experts on Iran said Iran had used cash and money changers to help get around banking restrictions.
Now contrast the kid glove treatment of Iran to the nasty political verbiage coming out of the White House in regard to Netanyahu. Susan Rice, yes that lying hack (Benghazi), made it clear:
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s acceptance of an invitation to address the US Congress, without the blessing of the White House, is destructive to US-Israeli ties, a senior official said….[snip]
Rice, in an interview Tuesday with journalist Charlie Rose on PBS, said US relations with Israel have always had a bipartisan nature. But the invitation for the speech now breaks that tradition and adds a political component, she said.
“What has happened over the last several weeks by virtue of the invitation that was issued by the Speaker and the acceptance of it by Prime Minister Netanyahu two weeks in advance of his election is that on both sides there has now been injected a degree of partisanship,” Rice said.
“Which is not only unfortunate, I think it is destructive of the fabric of the relationship,” Rice added.
The only thing destructive to our allies is having Obama sitting in the Oval Office. It has nothing to do with politics or elections and everything to do with Iran. Obama’s legacy is leaving the world in tatters all for his personal political one-upmanship. How he can sleep at night after unleashing hell on the innocent people of the ME is beyond understanding. It’s Obama who has caused the deaths of thousands and the displacement of millions.
One bright note in the ME this week, a US jury found the PLO and PA responsible for the deaths of dozens of Americans in terrorist attacks. Finally, after decades, justice is served. Of course, there will be appeals but, the evidence is irrefutable. They are the originators of the suicide bomb and terrorism. The PLO were the instigators of a 19 year civil war in Lebanon as well. The head of the PLO, Meshad has left Qatar, another state that has spent millions supporting terrorism, and is now a “guest” of Turkey. He’s running out of places to hide.
Jurors in Manhattan federal court awarded $218.5 million in damages to 10 American families who brought the case, a sum that is automatically tripled to $655.5 million under a 1992 U.S. anti-terrorism law, lawyers for the families said

At the White House Summit on Extremism That Shall Remain Unspecified Because Violent Followers Belonging To Unnamed Extremist Movement Might Take Extreme Offense And Act Extremely, the feds are touting a groundbreaking new strategy to fight terrorists.
The Religion of Perpetual Outrage is just misunderstood and, anyway, it’s all our fault.
Vice President Joe Biden opened the convention of jihad-coddlers on Tuesday by emphasizing the need for “respect” (cha-ching) and “a sense of community.” White House senior aides spoke generically about terrorists of “all shapes and sizes,” as they studiously avoided the precise nature and identity of the perpetrators of evil that precipitated the meeting.
We aren’t nuanced enough to figure out the difference between Islamic extremists burning people alive, beheading people and committing genocide, and Muslims like Dr. Zuhdi Jasser who are just as appalled by the extremist element of Islam. Why does the Community Organizer-in-Chief think the crazies of Islam have “legitimate grievances”? Isn’t he “nuanced” enough to see the difference between them and ordinary Americans who practice Islam? BO, whether he realized it or not, made this whole Sociology 101 speech all about religion. He failed miserably – Bless his little heart.
The love affair is over. BO blames the (gasp) media for the distortion of Islam to the general public. He should just stop talking.
. So the image they get of Muslims or Islam is in the news. And given the existing news cycle, that can give a very distorted impression. A lot of the bad, like terrorists who claim to speak for Islam, that’s absorbed by the general population.
Has anyone else noticed the BO has taken sides in the Sunni/Shiite conflict that’s ongoing?
A U.S. federal judge on Monday temporarily blocked President Barack Obama’s plan to protect millions of undocumented immigrants from deportation, an issue likely to be seized upon in the 2016 presidential campaign.
Ruling in favor of about two dozen U.S. states opposed to the plan, U.S. District Judge Andrew Hanen in Brownsville, Texas, said the administration had not complied with procedure.
From the Washington Times
“The DHS was not given any ‘discretion by law’ to give 4.3 million removable aliens what the DHS itself labels as ‘legal presence,’ ” Judge Hanen wrote in issuing an injunction. “In fact, the law mandates that these illegally-present individuals be removed. The DHS has adopted a new rule that substantially changes both the status and employability of millions. These changes go beyond mere enforcement or even non-enforcement of this nation’s immigration scheme.”
Illegal aliens complaining because they can’t get free stuff. Living in suburbia is just so hard, they’re the victims doncha know.
he quickly learned that being poor and undocumented and living far from the well-established immigrant networks found in the nation’s big cities made life especially difficult. There was the absence of public transportation (he cannot legally drive), the scarcity of lawyers with immigration expertise and a feeling of isolation fed by his inability to speak English and the lack of opportunities to learn it….[snip]
Carina Diaz, 31, who emigrated from Mexico in 2005 and lives in Genesee County, said that until recently, her children’s schools neither provided translators for parent-teacher conferences nor translated important documents into Spanish.
The Obama administration will not accept applications for legal status from undocumented immigrants on Wednesday after a federal judge in Texas blocked implementation of President Obama’s policy deferring the deportation of millions of undocumented immigrants.
Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson said the administration would appeal the court ruling. “in the meantime, we recognize we must comply with it,” he said.
Most Americans are very open minded. We are not against legal immigrants nor their choosing to apply and come here. But, we are not interested in welcoming those who come here illegally, it doesn’t matter which country you come from, what your religion happens to be, or the color of your skin.
