Obama To Expand DACA, Give Amnesty To ‘Caretakers’

From the Associated Press:

Obama mulls large-scale move on immigration

By ERICA WERNER | July 28, 2014

WASHINGTON (AP) — Even as they grapple with an immigration crisis at the border, White House officials are making plans to act before November’s mid-term elections to grant work permits to potentially millions of immigrants who are in this country illegally, allowing them to stay in the United States without threat of deportation, according to advocates and lawmakers in touch with the administration.

So Obama is going to ‘grapple’ with the crisis at the border by giving work permits (really amnesty) to more of the millions of illegals already here. Yes, that will be sure to slow down the flood across the border.

Such a large-scale move on immigration could scramble election-year politics and lead some conservative Republicans to push for impeachment proceedings against President Barack Obama, a prospect White House officials have openly discussed…

Only because it is a distraction and fundraising tool.

No Mention Of Amnesty In GOP List Of Obama Overreach

From Breitbart:

John Boehner Does Not Mention Immigration in Op-Ed on Obama Lawsuit

By Matthew Boyle | July 28, 2014

President Obama is practically shouting from the rooftops that he’s about to grant a new unilateral amnesty to as many as six million illegal aliens, but the topic of immigration does not come up in a new op-ed from Speaker John Boehner explaining his lawsuit against Obama for lawlessness.

In the op-ed, Boehner explains why he chose to focus the lawsuit only on Obamacare. “On the advice of legal experts, the House action will focus on his decision to extend–twice–the deadline to institute the employer mandate in his healthcare law,” Boehner wrote. “We believe this targeted lawsuit offers the best chance of success.”

In the op-ed, Boehner mentioned other issues in which he thinks Obama has acted outside the bounds of the law–but he ignored immigration, and specifically the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.

Congress Phone Lines Jammed In Response To Sessions

From Breitbart:

Fearing Obama Unilateral Amnesty Threats, Tea Party Jams Congress’s Phone Lines

By Matthew Boyle | July 28, 2014

The phone lines are jammed. The American people have risen up in response to a rallying cry from Sens. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) and Ted Cruz (R-TX), overloading the phone lines on Capitol Hill to pressure their members of Congress to fight against President Obama’s planned executive amnesty for millions of illegal aliens…

“This shows the American people are going to resist,” a Sessions aide told Breitbart News. “The crescendo will grow. They are only beginning to be heard. They will get louder in the coming days.”

Let’s hope so. But this is the reason Obama is pulling this stunt on Friday is because Congress will already be on its five week vacation.

Jeff Sessions Calls On US To Stop Obama’s Lawlessness

From Breitbart:

Jeff Sessions on Obama’s Executive Amnesty: Congress Faces ‘Time of Choosing’ at ‘Perilous Hour’

By Tony Lee | July 28, 2014

It’s now or never for opponents of President Barack Obama’s lawlessness on illegal immigration. Saying America faces a "perilous hour," and members of Congress are entering a "momentous week" when it comes to the future of the separation of powers, Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) urged his colleagues on Monday to "be counted" and "stand up" to Obama’s "lawless actions, and sponsor legislation that will block him" from granting amnesty to millions more illegal immigrants.

It’s astonishing and appalling that it has come to this. A Senator has to beg his fellow Congressmen and countrymen to do something to stop Obama’s upcoming executive orders, which will overturn what’s left of our immigration laws.

Obama Wants To Close Border – To Companies Leaving US

From Reuters:

Obama could curb corporate ‘inversions’ on his own: ex-U.S. official

By Kevin Drawbaugh | July 27, 2014

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – President Barack Obama could act without congressional approval to limit a key incentive for U.S. corporations to move their tax domiciles abroad in so-called "inversion" deals, a former senior U.S. Treasury Department official said on Monday.

By invoking a 1969 tax law, Obama could bypass congressional gridlock and restrict foreign tax-domiciled U.S companies from using inter-company loans and interest deductions to cut their U.S. tax bills, said Stephen Shay, former deputy assistant Treasury secretary for international tax affairs in the Obama administration.

In other words, US corporations are cutting their US taxes by buying companies overseas and making them the official tax residence for the company.

NYT Editorial Demands Repeal Of Marijuana ‘Prohibition’

From a cheering Reuters:

New York Times backs sending federal marijuana ban up in smoke

By Alex Dobuzinskis | July 26, 2014

(Reuters) – The New York Times editorial board on Saturday endorsed a repeal of the federal ban on marijuana, becoming the largest paper in the nation to back the idea as it compared the U.S. government’s stance on America’s most widely used illicit drug to the prohibition on alcohol from 1920 to 1933.

How creative of them! And never mind that this is the same NYT that has published more than 226,000 articles over the years attacking cigarettes. And the same NYT that has recently launched a relentless jihad against E-Cigarettes.

But marijuana cigarettes are ‘the bomb.’

The post on the newspaper’s website is part of an editorial series that in the coming days will explore different aspects of marijuana use, from health effects to how the criminal justice system treats it…

Does the NYT think they have advanced the gay agenda as far as it can go, and they are now picking up another George Soros/Obama cause?

Judge Declares Open Carry Ban In DC Unconstitutional

From the Washington Post:

Federal judge declares D.C. ban on carrying handguns in public unconstitutional

By Martin Weil, Clarence Williams and Julie Zauzmer | July 27, 2014

A federal judge has declared that one of the District’s principal gun control laws is unconstitutional and ordered that its enforcement be halted. The ruling by Judge Frederick J. Scullin Jr., made public Saturday, orders the city to end its prohibition against carrying a pistol in public.

(For the record, Judge Scullin was originally appointed to the federal bench by President GHW Bush. He is also a judge on the FISA court.)

It was not clear what immediate effect the order would have…

There wouldn’t be a any lack of clarity from the WP if this had gone the other way.

If Elections Were Today Romney Would Win (Yet Again)

From CNN:

CNN Poll: Romney tops Obama but loses to Clinton

July 27, 2014

Washington (CNN) – If a rematch of the 2012 presidential election were held today, GOP nominee Mitt Romney would top President Barack Obama in the popular vote, according to a new national survey.

Remember how Obama let it be known during the campaign he couldn’t stand the idea of losing to Romney, because then Romney would get all of the credit for turning the country around, when it would all be due to Obama’s doing? Good times.

But a CNN/ORC International poll also indicates that if Romney changes his mind and runs again for the White House, Hillary Clinton would best him by double digits in a hypothetical showdown.

Thank Allah, CNN added that about Hillary.

Rahm Emanuel Wants To Shelter ‘Kids’ Fleeing Violence

From the Chicago Tribune:

Mayor wants Chicago to shelter young immigrants

By Juan Perez Jr. [sic] | July 26, 2014

Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s administration is set to aggressively expand the amount of shelter available to children apprehended at the southern U.S. border, with plans to house as many as 1,000 additional young immigrants in Chicago by the end of this year.

"The influx of unaccompanied child migrants is a growing humanitarian crisis that we can no longer ignore," Emanuel said in a statement.

"While we have our own challenges at home, we cannot turn our backs on children that are fleeing dangerous conditions," the mayor said.

There were at least 23 shootings in Chicago over the weekend. And, according US government statistics back in January of this year the number of people murdered in Chicago (4,265) surpassed the number of US soldiers killed in Afghanistan (2,166) over the same time frame.

Obama Used To Say He Couldn’t Do Amnesty By Himself

From one of Obama’s first responders at the Politico:

Obama’s immigration flip flop

By CARRIE BUDOFF BROWN | July 25, 2014

President Barack Obama insisted for years that he had absolutely no legal authority — none whatsoever, zero, zilch — to slow deportations on a broad scale.

Forget everything he’s said…

As usual with Obama, words mean nothing. As with most socialists, Obama only sees words as tools to power and nothing else. But don’t worry, the Politico is going to explain why that isn’t a problem here.

Obama’s pledge to use his executive powers by the end of the summer marked both a dramatic reversal in rhetoric and a major strategic shift on immigration… In other words, Obama has signaled that he intends to do exactly what he’s long said he’s unable to do…

And to think Obama pretends to be a Constitutional scholar.

LAT: Obama Will Give Amnesty To (At Least) 5M Illegals

From the Los Angeles Times:

White House pursuing plan to expand immigrant rights

By Christi Parsons, Brian Bennett, Lisa Mascaro | July 25, 2014

Even as President Obama grapples with the crisis of immigrant children arriving at the Southwest border,

Huh? Obama isn’t grappling with anything except golf clubs and fat cat donors. He is ignoring the ‘crisis’ on the border, expect to try to make it worse.

White House officials are laying the groundwork for a large-scale expansion of immigrant rights that would come by executive action within weeks.

Yes, an executive order giving millions more illegal aliens amnesty will stem the illegal alien flood across the border for sure. But why would Obama want it stemmed?

Officials signaled strongly Friday that Obama’s move would shield from deportation large numbers of immigrants living in the country illegally, as advocacy groups have demanded.

France Offers Asylum To Iraq Christians, Where’s The US?

From Reuters:

France offers asylum to Mosul’s Christians

July 28, 2014

PARIS (Reuters) – France said on Monday it was ready to welcome Christians from northern Iraq who have been told by the al Qaeda offshoot group now ruling the region to either covert to Islam, pay a religious levy or face death.

Islamic State insurgents seized large swathes of northern Iraq last month, prompting hundreds of Christian families in Mosul to flee a city which has hosted the faith since its earliest years.

"We are providing aid to displaced people fleeing from the threats of Islamic Sate and who have sought refuge in Kurdistan. We are ready, if they wish, to facilitate their asylum on our soil," France’s foreign and interior ministers said in a joint statement.

Obama Frets About Gaza Victims, Not Christian Genocide

From an unquestioning Associated Press:

Obama: US worried about worsening Gaza conditions

July 27, 2014

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama is telling Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that the United States is growing more concerned about the rising number of civilian deaths in the Gaza war that is entering its third week.

The White House says Obama and Netanyahu spoke Sunday about the ongoing violence in the region and the worsening humanitarian situation in Gaza.

But only the ‘humanitarian situation’ in Gaza. Israeli casualties don’t count. And never mind that Hamas is doing everything it can to increase its civilian casualties.

Obama also reiterated that Israel has a right to defend itself and condemned Hamas’ rocket attacks.

How big of him.

Obama says a lasting peace will ultimately require a demilitarized Gaza and dismantling of terror groups…

The only time Gaza has been peaceful has been when it has been heavily militarized by the Israelis.

Russian Nationals Take Over Top Separatists’ Leadership

From Reuters:

Pushing locals aside, Russians take top rebel posts in east Ukraine

By Gabriela Baczynska and Aleksandar Vasovic | July 27, 2014

KIEV/DONETSK Ukraine (Reuters) – As Ukrainian troops gained ground in eastern Ukraine in early July, separatist leader Aleksander Borodai, a Russian national, left for Moscow for political consultations.

After what he described as successful talks with unnamed people there, he returned to the rebel stronghold of Donetsk to introduce a new senior figure in his self-proclaimed republic, a compatriot seasoned in the pro-Russian separatist movement in Moldova and a war between Russia and Georgia.

Moldova, Georgia, Crimea, Ukraine… It’s almost like there is a pattern developing.

Vladimir Antyufeyev was named "deputy prime minister" by Borodai on July 10, one of several native Russians to have taken charge of the separatist rebellion in Ukraine’s eastern regions.

US Evacuates Its Embassy In Libya (Losing Obama’s War)

From an unfazed Associated Press:

U.S. evacuates embassy in Libya amid clashes

By ASSOCIATED PRESS | July 26, 2014

WASHINGTON — The United States shuttered its embassy in Libya on Saturday and evacuated its diplomats to neighboring Tunisia under U.S. military escort as fighting intensified between rival militias. Secretary of State John Kerry said "free-wheeling militia violence" prompted the move.

Lest we forget, Libya was Obama’s war and his alone. (If you don’t count the ‘War Hens,’ Valerie Jarrett, Hillary Clinton and Samantha Power.) He didn’t even consult with Congress, much less get their permission. He helped to overthrew an anti-terrorist American ally in his eagerness to Libya to the Muslim terrorists.

American personnel at the Tripoli embassy, which had already been operating with limited staffing, left the capital around dawn and traveled by road to neighboring Tunisia, with U.S.
