Pro-Amnesty GOP Rep To Deliver Spanish SOTU Response

From Breitbart:

Pro-Amnesty House Republican To Deliver Spanish Language Response

by Dan Riehl | 20 Jan 2015

Based on House Republican documents reviewed by Breitbart News, pro-amnesty Republican freshman Rep. Carlos Curbelo of Florida will be delivering the Republican’s Spanish-language address in response to Obama’s State of the Union speech.

This has since been confirmed by John Boehner’s office.

Curbelo recently made waves with a January 18 interview in The Hill, which focused on his strong dissent from the basic Republican position on immigration and all but stated his support for Obama’s executive amnesty…

So this just isn’t Hispanic outreach. It’s Hispandering at its worst.

Boehner may be talking a good game in regards to fighting the White House on immigration, but it’s difficult to square that with his choice of Curbelo to deliver this particular address.

WH Invites ‘DREAM-er’ To SOTU, Rubio Invites Dissident

From Breitbart:

White House Invites DREAMer to State of Union

By Tony Lee | January 19, 2015

On Tuesday, a DREAMer from Texas will be sitting with First Lady Michelle Obama during President Barack Obama’s State of the Union address. The White House officially announced that Ana Zamora will join 21 others [sic] as Michelle Obama’s guests tomorrow evening in her box.

Even though there will be 22 people sitting with Michelle Obama, apparently Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl won’t be sitting with Michelle. Which is surprising, especially since Bergdahl is such a hero with the left. Unlike Chris Kyle of American Sniper.

(And while we’re on the subject, the Army’s investigation of Bergdahl has been over for several months, and yet we still don’t know if he will be charged with desertion.

Obama Has The Worst SOTU Record, Second Only To Ford

From the Washington Times:

Obama has worst State of the Union record since Ford, study shows

By Stephen Dinan | January 20, 2015

Judging by his recent history, it doesn’t really matter what President Obama says in Tuesday’s State of the Union address — Congress is going to ignore him anyway. Mr. Obama has the second-worst record of getting his State of the Union policy requests enacted into law of any president in the last five decades, according to an analysis by two scholars that puts him only above the unelected two-year presidency of Gerald Ford.

We haven’t been able to take Mr. Obama’s State of the Union addresses seriously since in his first one in 2009 he promised to “cut the deficit in half” by the end of his first term.

Obama Wants To Rollback Clinton’s Capital Gains Tax Cut

From a memory deficient Associated Press:

In State of the Union, Obama aims to influence 2016 debate

By JULIE PACE | January 20 2015

WASHINGTON (AP) — Key elements of the economic proposals President Barack Obama will outline in his State of the Union address Tuesday appear to be aimed at driving the debate in the 2016 election on income inequality and middle-class economic issues, rather than setting a realistic agenda for Congress.

We thought Obama didn’t do theater. In any case, who cares about income inequality? It ranks even below global warming in every poll of the public’s top concerns.

Obama’s calls for increasing taxes on the wealthy, making community college free for many students and expanding paid leave for workers stand little chance of winning approval from the new Republican majority on Capitol Hill.

Desperate Lefties Mock ‘American Sniper’ For Fake Baby

From the Hollywood Reporter:

‘American Sniper’s’ Fake Baby Mocked by Critics, Moviegoers

by Mia Galuppo , Arlene Washington | 1/19/2015

American Sniper opened to a record $105.3 million over the long Martin Luther King Jr. weekend in North America. In addition to that achievement — as well as its six Oscar nominations, including a best picture mention — critics and moviegoers also are talking about something else when discussing the Clint Eastwood-directed war biopic: that fake baby.

That is, they have managed to find a nit to pick.

The most glaringly obvious scene in which a fake baby is used features Bradley Cooper and his onscreen wife, Sienna Miller. The two pass the partially mechanized baby back and forth as they talk about Cooper leaving for another tour.

Moore, Rogen Claim They Didn’t Criticize ‘American Sniper’

From NewsBusters:

Pathetic: Both Michael Moore and Seth Rogen Pretend Their Tweets Didn’t Criticize ‘American Sniper’

By Tom Blumer | January 19, 2015

[On the 18th] Michael Moore tweeted, in part, that "We were taught snipers were cowards." Earlier today… Seth Rogen tweeted that "American Sniper kind of reminds me of the (Nazi propaganda) movie that’s showing in the third act of Inglorious Basterds."

Tonight, both Moore and Rogen… are both pretending that they didn’t imply and say what they really implied and said.

Here’s Moore’s original tweet: "My uncle killed by sniper in WW2. We were taught snipers were cowards. Will shoot u in the back. Snipers aren’t heroes. And invaders r worse"

Does Michael Moore even knows why the US invaded in Iraq in the first place in the First Gulf War?

ISIS Demands $200M Ransom For 2 Japanese Hostages

From the UK’s Daily Mail:

ISIS executioner ‘Jihadi John’ threatens to kill Japanese hostages unless they receive $200m in 72-hour ultimatum after their Prime Minister pledged the same amount to countries fighting ISIS

By Simon Tomlinson | 20 January 2015

The Islamic State has released a video threatening to kill two Japanese hostages unless they receive $200 million within 72 hours. It comes two days after Japan’s Prime Minister Shinzo Abe pledged $200million in non-military support for countries fighting ISIS in Iraq and Syria…

For the record, this is the first time ISIS has demanded a ransom in public. Of course, they have demanded ransoms in the past — and gotten them — but just not out in the open like this.

The clip… featured the British-accented militant widely known as ‘Jihadi John’ who appeared in the beheading videos of four Western hostages last year.

The NFL Investigates Whether Patriots Deflated Footballs

From Indianapolis’ NBC affiliate, WTHR:

Source tells Bob Kravitz that Patriots may have deflated football

By Bob Kravitz | Jan 19, 2015
FOXBORO, Mass. – A source within the NFL tells wthr.com’s Bob Kravitz that the league is investigating the possibility that the Patriots deflated footballs in their 45-7 win over the Colts Sunday night. The source told Kravitz that officials took a ball out of play at one point and weighed it.

New York Newsday’s Bob Glauber tweeted around 7 a.m. Monday that NFL Spokesman Michael Signora confirmed the WTHR exclusive that the NFL is looking into whether footballs were properly inflated during the Colts-Patriots game.

"I initially thought a softer ball would be tougher to throw, but people who understand physics have since told me it would be easier to throw and catch."

Anyone who has played sandlot football in the rain or snow would know this.

(Black) Academy Prez: Diversity Needs To Be Mandatory

From the Associated Press:

AP Exclusive: Academy president responds to Oscar firestorm

By SANDY COHEN | January 17, 2015

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Responding for the first time to the firestorm of criticism over the lack of diversity in this year’s Oscar nominations, film academy president Cheryl Boone Isaacs says the all-white acting slate inspires her to accelerate the academy’s push to be more inclusive. She also hopes the film industry as a whole will continue to strive for greater diversity.

So here we go. We are now going to get more ‘affirmative action Academy Awards.’ More ‘reparation Oscars.’ (Maybe the Academy will come up with a whole new category: Best Reparations.)

The first black president of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences spoke out Friday night in an exclusive interview with The Associated Press about the Oscar nominations and the widespread criticism that followed.

AP: GOP Worry Staten Island Candidate Hurts ‘Outreach’

From the always reliable Associated Press:

Some in GOP worry House hopeful could hurt diversity effort

By ALAN FRAM | January 17, 2015

WASHINGTON (AP) — Eager to attract more minority voters, some Republicans are worried that their party’s near-certain candidate for a House seat in New York City could become the latest drag on GOP diversity efforts.

Daniel Donovan seems sure to become the Republican nominee in a special election in the 11th Congressional District… Donovan, the district attorney for Staten Island the past 11 years and a borough native, would be the favorite to win in the conservative-leaning district. He’s also the prosecutor who presented evidence to the grand jury that decided against charging a white police officer in last July’s chokehold [sic] death of Eric Garner, an unarmed black suspect.

Obama Orders Review Of (End To) ‘Police Militarization’

From The Hill:

Obama orders review of police militarization

By Mike Lillis | January 16, 2015

President Obama on Friday took steps to curb a federal program that arms local police with surplus military equipment. Through an executive order, the president created a working group — composed of top Cabinet officials — to examine the Pentagon’s 1033 program and recommend reforms to ensure that the law officers receiving the equipment are trained both in its use and in "the protection of civil rights and civil liberties" of local communities.

Can anyone point to any example of when the police prevented the exercise of anyone’s civil liberties? Even their civil liberties to riot and loot? — The only examples we can recall are when Tea Party groups have been denied permits for demonstrations.

Obama To Play Robin Hood At State Of The Union Address

From The Hill:

Obama plays Robin Hood

By Justin Sink | January 19, 2015

The White House wants President Obama to play the part of Robin Hood at Tuesday’s State of the Union address. Obama hopes to use the big speech to remove a blemish of his presidency: an economic recovery that has left wage growth behind.

And raising taxes on the rich middle class will do that?

Free [sic] community college. A $175 billion tax cut for the middle class. Faster, cheaper broadband internet. A week of paid sick leave. Discounted mortgages. Obama wants to move forward with all of these populist proposals for the poor and middle class, and he wants to do so by taking from the rich in the form of higher taxes on the wealthy and Wall Street…

[This speech is] meant to ensure Obama remains relevant for as long into his presidency as possible… “I think we should have a debate in this country between middle-class economics and trickle-down economics,” top aide Dan Pfeiffer said on “Face the Nation” on Sunday.

Obama Announces New Cuban Regs – Dems Visit Cuba

From an overjoyed Reuters:

Obama measures on Cuba trade, travel poke new holes in embargo

By Anna Yukhananov, Matt Spetalnick and Krista Hughes | Jan 15, 2015

(Reuters) – The United States announced sweeping new rules on Thursday that will significantly ease sanctions on Cuba, opening up the communist-ruled island to expanded U.S. travel, trade and financial activities.

"Sweeping new rules" = Obama’s latest diktats.

Defying hardline critics in Congress, President Barack Obama made good on his commitment last month to loosen restrictions on dealings with Cuba as part of an historic effort to end decades of hostility…

How courageous Obama is — when it comes to standing up to Republicans.

[T]he package of regulations issued by the Treasury and Commerce Departments, which will take effect on Friday, will allow U.S.

Newsweek: NYC’s 9/11 Museum Acquires Truther Collage

From a probably mixed emotioned Newsweek:

9/11 Museum Acquires Truther Art

By Max Kutner | January 17, 2015

When The Village Voice chose Anthony Freda to create artwork for a story about the 9/11 Truth movement, he first planned to gently mock the Truthers… But as Freda researched the Truther claims, what they said made sense to him…

[So] rather than attack the Truthers, Freda instead attacked the official narrative. The resulting piece, a collage called Questions, uses red string to connect images, like a detective on TV building a case on a bulletin board. Questions will soon join the permanent collection at the National September 11 Memorial & Museum, becoming one in a handful of artifacts there that represents an alternate view of history.

Le Pen: France Was Attacked By Islamic Fundamentalism

An op-ed in the New York Times, of all places:

To Call This Threat by Its Name

Marine Le Pen: France Was Attacked by Islamic Fundamentalism

By MARINE LE PEN | January 18, 2015

PARIS — “To misname things is to add to the world’s unhappiness.” Whether or not Albert Camus really did utter these words, they are an astonishingly apt description of the situation in which the French government now finds itself. Indeed, the French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius no longer even dares pronounce the real name of things.

Mr. Fabius will not describe as “Islamists” the terrorists who on Wednesday, Jan. 7, walked into the offices of the newspaper Charlie Hebdo, right in the heart of Paris. Nor will he use “Islamic State” to describe the radical Sunni group that now controls territory in Syria and Iraq…

Imagine having leaders who are so determined to ignore reality.
