HSS Memo Kills Program For Enforcing Immigration Laws

From CNS News:

Obama’s Amnesty Plan Also Ends Program for Enforcing Immigration Laws

By Penny Starr | December 16, 2014

(CNSNews.com) – Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson issued a series of memorandums on the same day the President Barack Obama announced he would take executive action to protect millions of illegal aliens from being deported[.]

So even Cabinet Secretaries can do executive orders via ‘memoranda’? Who needs Congress or silly laws?

[I]ncluding ending Secure Communities, the partnership between federal, state and local law enforcement to facilitate the enforcement of the nation’s immigration laws. “The Secure Communities program, as we know it, will be discontinued,” the first line of Johnson’s Nov. 20 memo reads.

‘Stroke of a pen, law of the land. Cool.’ And never mind how much it cost to establish such a program.

WH Panel Wants To Remove Cop Cases From Grand Juries

From The Hill:

WH task force to review grand juries’ handling of police killings

By Justin Sink | December 16, 2014

A White House panel is examining whether grand juries are the best way to review the use of deadly force by law enforcement in the aftermath of controversial decisions not to indict police officers who killed unarmed black men.

"One of the things that we will be looking at as a task force is independent review of these kinds of cases and how should that take place," Philadelphia police chief Charles Ramsey, who is co-chairing the panel, told NPR’s "Morning Edition" on Tuesday… "Is a grand jury, for an example, the proper way of doing it, with the district attorney’s involvement and that so forth?" [Ramsey] asked.

Family Allowed To Come To US – After Donating To Dems

From the New York Times (of all places):

Ecuador Family Wins Favors After Donations to Democrats

By FRANCES ROBLES | December 16, 2014

MIAMI — The Obama administration overturned a ban preventing a wealthy, politically connected Ecuadorean woman from entering the United States after her family gave tens of thousands of dollars to Democratic campaigns, according to finance records and government officials.

Actually hundreds of thousands of dollars, as the article soon goes on to say.

The woman, Estefanía Isaías, had been barred from coming to the United States after being caught fraudulently obtaining visas for her maids. But the ban was lifted at the request of the State Department under former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton so that Ms. Isaías could work for an Obama fund-raiser with close ties to the administration.

New ICE Chief: Some Illegals Have A ‘Right’ To Citizenship

From Breitbart:

Senate Confirms New ICE Chief Who Believes Some Illegals Have a ‘Right’ to Citizenship

By Tony Lee | December 16, 2014

On Tuesday, the Senate confirmed Sarah Saldana, who has said she would implement President Barack Obama’s executive amnesty and believes that illegal immigrants who qualify for it have a "right" to citizenship, to head Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), the agency tasked with enforcing the country’s immigration laws.

A right based on what exactly? 

She was confirmed by a 55-39 vote.

Thank goodness the Republican leadership is letting such nominees get through before they could stop them next month.

When Sens. Jeff Sessions (R-AL), Mike Lee (R-UT), and Ted Cruz (R-TX), all of whom subsequently opposed her nomination, asked Saldana, the current U.S.

Polls Show GOP ‘Leaders’ Are Ignoring Base On Amnesty

From the Daily Caller:

GOP Leaders Stomp GOP Voters on Amnesty

By Neil Munro | December 16, 2014

Polls show the GOP’s base is overwhelmingly opposed to President Barack Obama’s amnesty, yet the GOP’s business-backed leadership ruthlessly stomped on GOP legislators who opposed funding the amnesty in the 2015 government budget…

Polls show most Americans and many Democrats oppose the Obama amnesty. The opposition is particularly strong among Republicans.

What does the Republican leadership care? They are just as eager to bypass their base as Obama is to bypass Congress.

A Pew survey released Dec. 11 showed that 82 percent of Republicans oppose Obama’s plan, which was announced Nov. 20. Only 15 percent of Republicans approve of the plan. Strong opinions were even more lopsided, 71 percent very strongly against, 7 percent very strongly for.

Hillary, Winner Of Sanger Award, Says ‘Black Lives Matter’

From an irony proof Associated Press:

Clinton rips use of torture, says ‘black lives matter’

December 17, 2014

NEW YORK –  Hillary Rodham Clinton said Tuesday she’s proud to have been part of an administration that "banned illegal renditions and brutal interrogations" and said the U.S. should never be involved in torture anywhere in the world.

If they were already illegal, why would they need to be banned? Of course, the fact is these practices were not illegal because they are not torture. Or Obama and Holder would have found someone to indict, as they had promised.

Besides, is sprinkling water up someone’s nose really worse than killing them and their family and friends with a drone?

Clinton spoke about the importance of the nation acting in accordance with its values after receiving an award from The Robert F.

NBC Reporters Reject Own Poll Showing Support For CIA

From the Media Research Center:

NBC Reporters Reject Own Poll Showing Americans Support CIA Interrogations

By Kyle Drennen | December 16, 2014

On her 12 p.m. ET hour MSNBC show on Tuesday, host Andrea Mitchell could barely conceal her disgust while reporting on a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll showing a majority of Americans supported the enhanced interrogation tactics used by the CIA after September 11th: "51% said that the procedures used, the interrogation enhanced tactics, which have been defined as torture, 51% said that they were acceptable under the circumstances. Only 28% said that they went too far."

Turning to NBC’s chief foreign correspondent Richard Engel, Mitchell cautioned that "polling is always an imprecise measure because of the way questions are asked."

Funny, but they never mention that when they get the results they wanted.

Taliban Not Mentioned In WH Statement On School Attack

From the Associated Press:

Obama condemns ‘heinous’ terrorist shooting attack on Pakistani school that killed children

By Nedra Pickler | December 16, 2014

WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama on Tuesday condemned a "horrific attack" on a Pakistani school that killed more than 100 children, as U.S. officials offered assistance in responding to the terrorist shooting…

Actually, the number of deaths is now over 140, including 132 children. But whose counting?

"By targeting students and teachers in this heinous attack, terrorists have once again shown their depravity," Obama said in a brief written statement. "We stand with the people of Pakistan, and reiterate the commitment of the United States to support the government of Pakistan in its efforts to combat terrorism and extremism and to promote peace and stability in the region." …

In fact here is Obama’s statement in full, via From the White House website:

Statement by the President on the Terrorist Attack on the Army Public School in Pakistan

The United States condemns in the strongest possible terms today’s horrific attack on the Army Public School in Peshawar, Pakistan.  Our hearts and prayers go out to the victims, their families, and loved ones.  By targeting students and teachers in this heinous attack, terrorists have once again shown their depravity.  We stand with the people of Pakistan, and reiterate the commitment of the United States to support the Government of Pakistan in its efforts to combat terrorism and extremism and to promote peace and stability in the region.

Obama Disguises His Record Number Of ‘Executive Actions’

From USA Today:

Obama issues ‘executive orders by another name’

By Gregory Korte | December 16, 2014

WASHINGTON — President Obama has issued a form of executive action known as the presidential memorandum more often than any other president in history — using it to take unilateral action even as he has signed fewer executive orders. When these two forms of directives are taken together, Obama is on track to take more high-level executive actions than any president since Harry Truman battled the "Do Nothing Congress" almost seven decades ago, according to a USA TODAY review of presidential documents.

So we have been lied to by Obama and the Democrats and their media, who tell us that he’s done fewer executive orders than any other President in history?

US District Judge Finds Obama Amnesty Unconstitutional

From a highly incensed Associated Press:

US judge says Obama immigration action invalid

December 16, 2014

WASHINGTON (AP) — A federal judge in Pittsburgh is declaring that President Barack Obama’s recent executive actions on immigration are unconstitutional.

If this were a liberal judge ruling in favor of same sex marriage, for instance, would the AP say he was "declaring" something unconstitutional? Or would they say he "found it to be" unconstitutional?

U.S. District Judge Arthur Schwab says Obama’s order in November designed to spare millions living illegally in the United States from deportation amounts to "unilateral legislative action" in violation of the Constitution…

Obama isn’t ‘sparing’ anyone from deportation with his latest illegal executive order. He has already done that when he stop deporting everyone but the most hardened criminals.

Global Warming? Quietest 3 Years For Twisters On Record

From USA Today:

Tame tornadoes: Quietest 3 years for twisters on record

By Doyle Rice | December 13, 2014

The U.S. experienced fewer tornadoes in the past three years than any similar span since accurate records began in the 1950s. Yet meteorologists aren’t sure exactly why.

As this year comes to a close, about 150 fewer damaging tornadoes than average have hit the U.S., according to data from the Storm Prediction Center (SPC). Explanations for the decrease in twisters the past three years range from unusual cold to unusual heat, or just coincidence.

Despite the calmer than average years, deaths due to twisters remain near the average of 60 each year, with 68 killed in 2012, 55 in 2013 and 42 so far this year, according to the SPC.

PolitiFact’s Lie Of The Year: ‘Exaggerations’ About Ebola

From PolitiFact:

2014 Lie of the Year: Exaggerations about Ebola

By Angie Drobnic Holan, Aaron Sharockman | December 15, 2014

… [F]ear of [Ebola] stretched to every corner of America this fall, stoked by exaggerated claims from politicians and pundits. They said Ebola was easy to catch, that illegal immigrants may be carrying the virus across the southern border, that it was all part of a government or corporate conspiracy.

The claims — all wrong — distorted the debate about a serious public health issue. Together, they earn our Lie of the Year for 2014…

Fox News analyst George Will claimed Ebola could be spread into the general population through a sneeze or a cough, saying the conventional wisdom that Ebola spreads only through direct contact with bodily fluids was wrong.

Holder/Obama Praise The NBA For ‘I Can’t Breathe’ Shirts

From The Hill:

Holder praises NBA stars for ‘I can’t breathe’ shirts

By Justin Sink | December 15, 2014

Attorney General Eric Holder said he thought was “a good thing” that NBA players were protesting the death of Staten Island resident Eric Garner by wearing “I Can’t Breathe” T-shirts during the warm-ups before games.

And never mind that Mr. Garner didn’t die from a chokehold. He died from asthma and heart disease which was aggravated by his resisting arrest.

“For them to get out there and to express in that way a social conscience, I think goes back to maybe people that these guys don’t even know or my son has a vague awareness of, to Jackie Robinson, who is seen as not only a great athlete, but as an involved, thinking, caring black man,” Holder told the Chicago Sun-Times.

Guidelines For White People At Ferguson/Garner Protest

From The Right Scoop:

‘Follow direction of black leadership’ – Guidelines for white people at Ferguson protest are AMAZING

By Soopermexican | December 13, 2014

Apparently black people protesting Ferguson believe that one of the ways to stop racism is to have racially-based guidelines for white people so that they know their place…

Here are the guidelines for the white racist oppressor from an attendee of a Boston protest meeting:

White Peoples [sic] Roles & Responsibilities

• Show up

• Stay off the megaphone

• Direct media to Black leadership

• Follow direction of Black leadership

• Protest from our position (We are not Mike Brown, carry signs challenging white supremacy)

• Call-in/collect white folks who are causing harm and/or breaking guidelines set by Black leadership

• When planning white specific solidarity actions, target spaces of white power, and don’t speak for black people but about white culpability

Remember, they are protesting ‘racism.’

First from the New York Post:

Cops tell de Blasio: Stay away from our funerals

By Tara Palmeri | December 12, 2014

Cops are warning Mayor de Blasio and Council Speaker Melissa ​Mark-​Viverito to stay away from their funerals should they be ​killed in the line of duty. The Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association distributed a flier to members, blaring: “DON’T LET THEM INSULT YOUR SACRIFICE!” Cops were encouraged to sign and submit the “Don’t Insult My Sacrifice” waiver to ban the cop-bashing pols from their funerals.

“I, as a New York City police officer, request that Mayor Bill de Blasio and City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito refrain from attending my funeral services in the event that I am killed in the line of duty,” the waiver states.
