Educational Overreach..?

Educational Overreach..?
dreamact2 Fox News accused President Obama of a “constitutional violation” by claiming he enacted the DREAM Act in 2012 even though the legislation had not passed Congress. In    fact, Obama has not enacted the DREAM Act. The deferred action program for undocumented youth he announced in 2012 was an exercise in executive discretion and is  only a temporary measure that does not allow recipients to become legal residents or begin a path to citizenship, as the congressional proposed DREAM Act would have  done.

However let us be real and open about this conundrum. Here just as every other program that has been put forth by the U.S. government there has been no planning,  organizing, or time management. What is it about the executive branch and the legislative branches that have the uniformly ugly ideal that anyone can start a program – for  the benefits of many – and yet that is it?

Currently in New York City several advocacy groups have gotten together and started a campaign to assist those with deferred action to make sure and keep open their claims. Ostensibly when one is granted DACA they are  committed to the program for two years. At the end of two years, whose responsibly is it to renew their DACA status? Well it seems that this in and of itself is creating a substantial decrease in the amounts of renewals.

Here is a message that is being posted literally everywhere in the City:

“Don’t have immigration papers? Scared of deportation? Want to get a work permit?” a new flyer plastered around immigrant neighborhoods provocatively asks. The poster — in English, Spanish, Mandarin, Korean, Haitian-Creole and Hindi — is part of a city-wide push to get more people to sign up for a special program called deferred action for childhood arrivals, which grants social security cards and work permits to young immigrants here illegally.

Deferred action is for undocumented immigrants who came to the U.S. before they were 16, were born on or after June 16, 1981, have lived here since June 15, 2007 and are either in school, graduated or have a GED.

Now if we may, we all need to look at what was stated in the first paragraph of this writing. Where does the DREAM Act or Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals mention anything remotely close to a path to citizenship? Just because some out-going senator or representative happens to mention (erroneously!) that a particular bill waiting to be debated on and passed or denied simply does not mean there is any credence whatsoever to citizenship. This is again another misunderstanding by illegal immigrants hoping, rather than to face the reality of what it is.

These Actions Should not be the Cause of Humility, Embarrassment

mar3_putin

A bra is in order…nothing sexy about those love handles

For the most part I believe that Sean Hannity means well, mind you, I also feel as though he can be a bit impetuous at certain times. Of course lately with a trying-to-be-a-reverse on Mr. Putin, President Obama who is lame when it comes to foreign policy, I believe that Barack Obama is simply waiting for Putin to step-in-it which is about to happen.

I believe that all of this occupation of Crimea the sending of the troops to both the Ukraine and outlying territories is far more a threat that an action delivered on. The brutal notion for me is that I believe that Obama and the Ukraine and Crimea are going to win what it is they want.

According to Hannity, “So we got a community organizer against the former KGB leader who is getting his butt kicked and embarrassed and humiliated on the world stage,” Hannity said. “The Russian media keeps showing a picture of [Obama] in Martha’s Vineyard, riding his little bicycle with his little helmet on. It’s so humiliating.”

Dear Sean Hannity:

Humiliation very much like embarrassment are subjective thoughts or feelings that one may generate; however, it is important to point out that not one person is capable of embarrassing you. And ditto for humiliation – I feel that these two behaviors cannot be forced on anyone by another source. It packs the scenario of only one can embarrass and or humiliate themselves by actions caused which results in the behaviors.

Furthermore, why are you using my airwaves to launch you childish rubbish. When various actions appear on the world stage, it is quite obvious that you will use your recently gained power to rub the rubbish everywhere.

Let us look at what you have written, or who has quoted you on the Fox News Insider. Starting from the third paragraph let’s come to what is so hard for the members of Congress to do…talk to each other and hopefullyObamaPutin_0 come to a compromise. Right then…we do have a community organizer-Junior Senator cum President going up against a real bully type in former KGB leader and whomever is getting their butts kicked will be decided in the middle to late rounds in this match.

You again state, “The Russian media keeps showing a picture of [Obama] in Martha’s Vineyard, riding his little bicycle with his little helmet on. It’s so humiliating.” Okay let us peruse these images. What Obama is doing is setting a great example because in most states helmets are required as is a license. Take a look at the statistical data where the per annum death toll arranged by those riders who do not wear helmets is roughly, 10,000. (Source citation here.)

Still with me? Great! So let us put this entire ridiculous mouth espousal to rest and assign blame on  photojournalists. How would you feel if you were out intentionally on a summer day flabby and bear chested?

The only bit of Russian laughter that I receive is when I see the same person in a wrestling togs whipping some tiny adolescent boy.

“Matricula cards and a Representative we can believe in…”

We have been covering this abhorrent situation with these so-called “Matricula cards” – for well over a year now and the unmitigated gall of the Mexican Consular official’s is nothing short of criminal. These matricula cards are supposed to be identification cards, deluxe with a photo identification of the holder; however, the problem is what is precisely necessary to get one?
Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-Huntington Beach) flew by helicopter to Santa Catalina Island on Thursday to personally condemn an effort by the Mexican consulate to offer identification cards to undocumented workers there. (Surprise!? You’re busted!)
Rohrabacher began his visit with a private, 90-minute breakfast meeting attended by Santa Catalina Island Co. officials, Los Angeles County sheriff’s authorities and Avalon Mayor Bob Kennedy to discuss the matter. By some estimates, as much as 70% of Avalon’s permanent population of 3,000 residents is Spanish-speaking Latinos.
“It was a good meeting. We had a very frank discussion about a national issue,” Rohrabacher said afterward. “This community is a microcosm of the problems in the whole country.”
“America can close its eyes and incrementally allow the country to be dominated by people who are here illegally,” added Rohrabacher, who is running for reelection in November and whose district includes the island. “Where you have illegal immigration, crime and drugs are sure to follow.”
The Mexican consul’s office first offered the photo identification cards to local illegal immigrant workers two years ago, setting up shop for a day in the upscale Catalina Island Country Club restaurant. The matricula cards can be used to establish credit, open bank accounts, buy insurance and in most states procure a driver’s license and apply for government services.
 The consul’s office was originally scheduled to offer the service again Thursday at the country club.
But all that changed when Rohrabacher on Wednesday informed the restaurant’s owner, the Santa Catalina Island Co., that State Department approval was necessary in order for any service to be provided by a foreign government on its property.
 
As a result, the company informed the consul’s office that it could no longer operate out of the country club. 
The consul’s team of 12 specialists moved a few blocks away to St. Catherine of Alexandria Catholic Church in Avalon.

But their problems were far from over.

At 10 a.m., Rohrabacher and an assistant strode into the church to personally express his concerns, raising eyebrows. Rohrabacher was greeted by Deputy Consul General Juan Carlos Mendoza Sanchez of Los Angeles in the middle of a room where Mexican specialists were typing information into laptop computers from two dozen men and women seeking their services.

But all eyes were on Rohrabacher and Sanchez, who launched into a carefully worded dialogue, expressing strongly opposing opinions.

Standing inches apart, Sanchez told Rohrabacher, “We have a lot of respect for you. At the same time, we have certain responsibilities.”

Rohrabacher responded: “I understand that. But there is a problem in our country; there are too many illegal’s here.”

“This is not done with any type of belligerency,” Rohrabacher added, referring to his unannounced visit.

“Everyone has their own point of view,” Sanchez said. “We are performing this activity under international law.” “Well, that will be decided in Washington and Mexico City,” Rohrabacher said.

Obama-era scandals litter the D.C. political landscape

While health care has dominated center stage, other Obama-era scandals litter the D.C. political landscape like wreckage from a 50-car pile-up.

According to top retired generals and other senior officers, the current commander in chief is waging a war of sorts against the U.S. military. The attack is playing out on multiple battle fronts, including the firing of close to 200 senior officers during Obama’s first five years in office – nine generals in 2013 alone.

Obama Oh pleaseSome retired generals are openly calling it a “purge.” Add to that the promotion of open homosexuality, women in front-line combat, suicidal rules of engagement, unwinnable counterinsurgency strategies, and, to top it off, increasing official antipathy toward God and Christianity, and you have a military in serious crisis. All manufactured in Washington – by Democrats.

coc_2There’s much more: America under Obama has no coherent foreign policy, resulting in this nation’s precipitous loss of power, influence and respect worldwide. Likewise, our national economy is being so abused by government borrowing and ill-considered Federal Reserve monetary intervention that the world is close to abandoning the dollar as its reserve currency – a huge loss to America with grave, if yet unseen, ramifications.

And of course, many government agencies are drowning in their own Obama-era scandals – from the Justice Department to the Internal Revenue Service to the National Security Agency to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

The good news is that the great illusion is evaporating. Nobody gets a “thrill up their leg” anymore when Obama speaks. Few Obama “true believers” remain. Mistrust is high. Just as in “The Emperor’s New Clothes,” America’s would-be monarch is now widely seen as he really is – a charismatic but immature, narcissistic and shockingly deceitful far-left agitator who somehow ended up in the White House.

It is heartbreaking for this proud American veteran to see what has been going on. Michelle Malkin was so unequivocally true with her best-selling book Culture of Corruption Obama and his Team of Tax Cheats, Crooks, and Cronies. Indeed what it is that makes the book and research so overwhelmingly incredible is when she wrote the book Obama would have been in his last months of campaigning.

I’ve got a pen…and I’ve got a phone…

President Barack Obama predicts Congress will be busy this year debating a renewal of jobless benefits for the long-term unemployed and an immigration overhaul. But he says he wants his Cabinet also to focus on executive actions that do not require legislation.

“We are not just going to be waiting for legislation in order to make sure that we are providing Americans the kind of help that they need. I’ve got a pen and I’ve got a phone,” Obama said.

“And I can use that pen to sign executive orders and take executive actions … and I’ve got a phone that allows me to convene Americans from every walk of life,” Obama stated, according to Reuters.
He says he is “very pleased” that Congress has agreed on a $1 trillion budget measure and urges lawmakers to pass it promptly.

Calling for “all hands on deck” to assist the economy, President Barack Obama is urging his Cabinet to identify ways to keep his administration relevant to people struggling in the up-and-down recovery.

With two weeks left before delivering an economy-focused State of the Union address to Congress, Obama is picking up the pace of his jobs message and demonstrating how he can advance his economic agenda administratively and through his ability to coax action from important interest groups.

Please assure me that you are reading this stuff. What does he mean, “of his jobs message.” All we have ever heard and seen from this mental midget is a report ontimthumbo jobs, and of course his action of going against data and experts whilst reforming and/or disorganizing a welfare system used by preceding presidents and actually working.

“We’re not just going to be waiting for legislation in order to make sure that we’re providing Americans the kind of help they need. I’ve got a pen and I’ve got a phone,” Obama said Tuesday as he convened his first Cabinet meeting of the year. (In other words he is saying “my way or the highway” to Congress.)

In plain words this man is illustrating disrespect for Congress; the sooner Barack Obama is out of office is the sooner our job market will begin to turn around. Ask yourself a question or two: What has this conceited and egotistical person done with regarding the coal industry? (Over 67 percent have been laid off with no expectation of ever returning.)

We still wonder how (legally, or otherwise) how this arrogant person won his bid for re-election. This is another attempt to get people to look at the horror of politics; moreover, how stupid this country is in re-electing him.

This individual, Barack Obama, has to have the highest “father issues” ever rated by a public official. Again he is using his politics over people strategies that like ObamaCare, energy policies, and immigration reform simply does not think in terms of “what if” or until the end of his presidency.

What else could he possibly mean, “providing Americans the kind of help they need…”

Obama continued: “And I can use that pen to sign executive orders and take executive actions and administrative actions that move the ball forward in helping to make sure our kids are getting the best education possible. We need making sure that our businesses are getting the kind of support and help they need to grow and advance, to make sure that people are getting the skills that they need to get those jobs that our businesses are creating.”

We feel that Barack Obama should remove himself from trying to secure various remedies. Seriously look at the plans that have materialized since he took office.

Why Did the Benghazi Story Change?

Why Did the Benghazi Story Change?

blogs_obama_pelosi_reid_1524_447052_poll_xlargeThe truth about the terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya, is finally coming out.

An explosive intelligence report made public this week revealed that officials knew it was a terrorist attack that killed four Americans on September 11, 2012—and they knew right away. It also revealed that the lapse in security was preventable, based on intelligence the U.S. already had about the area.

These new answers are unsettling.

“Every step of the way, the White House’s response to Benghazi has been appalling,” said Heritage expert Helle Dale, who has followed the tragedy closely from the beginning.

The most shocking revelation, as Dale described it:

The country’s top military commanders clearly understood the assault on the U.S. diplomatic facility in Benghazi, Libya, was a terrorist attack from the moment the first reports came in, just 15 minutes after the assault began on September 11, 2012.

This news is shocking because the Obama Administration aggressively pushed the story that the violence was a protest against an anti-Muslim video that had simply gotten out of hand. “As a result, there was no attempted military rescue or response, and false information was peddled to the American people to shift the blame,” Dale explained.

“This testimony indicates beyond any doubt that the narrative of the Benghazi tragedy was changed within the White House. The question remains why and by whom.”

Then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton added insult to grave injury when she was questioned a year ago about the distinction between a protest and a terrorist attack. Her infamous response, “What difference, at this point, does it make?” showed an Administration entangled in the mess of its own making.

The difference Clinton downplayed at that time is crucial, because “the same White House that declared victory in the war against terrorism and pulled U.S. military assets out of Libya also failed miserably to take responsibility for its own miscalculation,” Dale said.

Representative Michele Bachmann (R-MN) told The Foundry this week that Members of Congress were “misled”—just like the American public. “It’s just outrageous that the Administration thought they could get away with blaming the cause of Benghazi on a false story.”

The American people—beginning with the families of those who were killed—deserve to know why the Administration denied what was apparently known. Our military and intelligence personnel around the world also deserve a full accounting, because they continue to enter dangerous situations every day.

A special hat-tip to the “Most Distinguished” group at The Heritage Foundation, The Foundry, and especially Amy Payne.

GOP bill lets Congress sue Obama over failure to enforce laws

GOP bill lets Congress sue Obama over failure to enforce laws

Truth, Justice, and No Lying!

Truth, Justice, and No Lying!

Rep. Jim Gerlach, R-Pa., proposed a bill (H.R. 3857) that would allow the House and Senate to sue an Administration for failing to enforce the law or violating the Constitution. Gerlach says the legislation is needed due to “unparalleled use of executive discretion to selectively apply or enforce duly-enacted laws,” including immigration laws.

Gerlach said the Obama Administration’s actions “have not only exceeded the rights and responsibilities bestowed on a president by the U.S. Constitution, but they have undermined the collective work that Congress constitutionally fulfills under Article I.

I believe that we should accept as a Nation of individuals that Barack Obama’s culture of corruption has indeed put us into positions of self-destruction.

The U.S. Code is not an a la carte menu compiled to serve the whims of a president and federal agencies — and no president or executive agency, regardless of political party or affiliation — should be able to simply pick and choose the laws they believe should be enforced based on their policy agenda or political wants.”

So many scholars and academic’s as well as the 435 plus positions in Congress I am sure are wondering just how they fit in, pursuant to Barack Obama’s arrogant behavior. The Founding Fathers as well as the Framers of the U.S. Constitution wrote specifically what they believed was necessary in governing documents that applied to everyone in office.

H.R. 3857 would give the House and Senate authority to file in court for “declaratory and injunctive relief to compel the president to faithfully execute” specific laws. Both chambers would first have to pass a resolution supported by 60 percent of all members present and voting. The federal District Court in Washington D.C. would have to fast track a case (decision within 90 days after filing), which could be reviewed by the Supreme Court.
