Dana Perino Wrongly Claims Obama ‘Has The Prosecutorial Discretion’ To Issue His Amnesty

One of the claims that the left is erroneously using to justify Obama’s new amnesty policy is that he has the “prosecutorial discretion” to do what he is doing and on Thursday Fox News’ Dana Perino agreed with the left that Obama does, indeed, have that power.

Perino appeared on the November 20 edition of Fox News’ The Five where she insisted that Obama does have the power to issue his amnesty. But she also noted that it was “strange” that the first major thing that Obama did after the elections was to “poison the well” with his amnesty policy even after he claimed that the midterms meant that voters want Democrats and Republicans to work together.

Perino went on to claim that Obama has neatly boxed in his Republican opponents because they will not be able to quickly settle the constitutional legality of Obama’s order nor will they be able to easily tell five million suddenly legal immigrants that they actually aren’t legal.

Where is Hillary on Obama’s Abuse of Power? The Five Times She Said Presidents Need Limits

-By Warner Todd Huston

Hillary Clinton has been pretty silent over Obama’s amnesty. She has not chastised this president for his abuse of power. But this might seem to be inconsistent with her past comments because there have been at least five times when she said that our presidents need to be reigned in and have their powers limited.

Clinton railed against an overly powerful executive at least five times in the recent past. In 2006, and twice each in 2007 and 2008 Hillary warned that the US needs to restore its system of checks and balances, a system lost to an over active Chief Executive.

In 2006, for instance, Hillary attacked George W. Bush claiming that he was making “the most extraordinary claims of executive power that we’ve seen in the nation’s history.” At that time Hillary praised our constitutional democracy and urged the nation to force Bush to back off and work better with Congress.

Only months later in 2007, Clinton was again railing against the President and saying that if she were elected to the White House she would roll back Bush’s use of Executive Orders. “I think you have to restore the checks and balances and the separation of powers, which means reining in the presidency,” Clinton said to The Boston Globe.

To Aid Obama, Old Media Establishment Took a Pass on Gruber Videos

The man who was trying to shop the Gruber videos to the media was rebuffed by the Old Media Establishment repeatedly because they had no interest in highlighting the fact that Obama and his Obamacare cohorts were lying to the American people about the President’s signature healthcare law.

Howard Kurtz tracked down the man who was trying to get the media to notice the string of videos showing Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber telling audiences that the American voters are “stupid” and saying that the administration lied repeatedly about what was in Obamacare and how it would work all in a desperate attempt to get the President’s take over of our national healthcare system passed into law.

Kurtz tracked down the man, Rich Weinstein, and found a man who doesn’t himself want to become the story. In fact, he wouldn’t even supply Kurtz with a photo of himself.

Another Government Making it Harder for Citizens to Get Public Records

Transparency, shmansparency. Once again we see a government doing its level best to keep you, the people, from being able to find out what it is that government is doing to you. This time it is in failing Illinois where lawmakers are trying to make it much, much harder to fulfill a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request.

Yes, your representatives in the Illinois legislature–Republican and Democrat alike–don’t want you to be able to find out what they are doing in Springfield. Imagine that.

The bill (HB 3796) would make it extremely costly to file for an FOI request allowing the government to charge up to $100 per request and would also give the government even more time to fulfill requests for information.

After Six Years Obama Adviser Valerie Jarrett Being Targeted By Media

-By Warner Todd Huston

After the shellacking that President Obama received at the hands of voters in the midterm elections, his chief advisor, Valerie Jarrett is finally in the hot seat. Over the weekend, two articles attacked her as all that is wrong with the White House with one piece slamming her the “Obama whisperer” and another one flat out advising Obama to fire her.

Jarrett has been with the Obamas since their beginning in Chicago and has become the President’s spokesperson, closest adviser, and, some say, the real decision-maker in the White House.

This ultimate insider has been criticized by conservatives for years, but now it seems even liberals have about had enough of her.

For years many have been afraid to cross her–and for good reason–but with this political drubbing, it looks like at least a few in the media have finally decided to speak up in opposition to Jarrett’s iron fisted rule behind the scenes.

Obamacare Architect Celebrates the Lack of Transparency in Obama’s Health Care Law: ‘Stupidity of American Voters’

In a revisited interview, the architect of Obamacare is seen saying that the lack of transparency in the President’s healthcare law is a feature not a problem. After all, if you rubes could figure it out, you’d really understand what an un-American mess Obamacare is. Obamacare is a total mess, a Gordian Knot that cannot be cut through by mortal men. And it was made that way on purpose.

The interview in question was of Romneycare and Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber from October of last year. In the video taped interview, Gruber is seen noting that the lack of transparency in Obamacare is really a good thing.

Obamacare Voters & Gang of Eight Immigration Senators Saw Big Losses on Tuesday

If you are a US Senator that supported Obamacare and/or one who supported the vaunted “Gang of Eight” senators who were seeking immigration compromise you are preparing for a long retirement back home in most cases because voters threw you out on your ear.

All these Democrats have been sacrificed on the altar of Obama.

First of all, you’ll recall that back in 2013 a group of eight US Senators got together supposedly to buck the gridlock and come to a compromise on immigration. The media loved these guys and hailed them as all that is good about Washington.

Michelle Obama Out Right Lies About Illinois ‘Leading’ in Job Creation, Media Silent

A few days ago, First Lady Michelle Obama was in Southern Illinois and during her speech she noted that Illinois leads the nation in job creation. This is a flat out lie. Not just political spin, but based solely on statistics, a straight out lie. And where was the media? Practically silent.

Obama was in Illinois to stump for Democrat Congresswoman Cheri Bustos who we hope is beaten by Republican candidate Bobby Schilling in the Illinois 17th District.

According to the Quad City Times, Obama praised Illinois for being a job creator saying, “”And we are here to keep this state in the right direction. And this state is leading the nation in job creation.”

New Anti-Media Campaign Debuts in North Carolina to Defeat Kay Hagan

-By Warner Todd Huston

An interesting new TV ad campaign that targets the left-wing media instead of just a political party or candidate has begun in North Carolina as Election Day bears down upon the nation.

The TV spot is ostensibly an ad asking voters to defeat Democrat incumbent Senator Kay Hagan, but the main message is anti-Old media as opposed to strictly anti-Kay Hagan.

A similar ad is running in New Mexico and both are sponsored by a PAC named the Conservatism War Chest. The PAC’s spokesman, Mike Flynn, notes that conservatives can’t win until the media is defeated. (Disclosure: I’ve known Mike for years and have worked with him at Bretbart.com. But I’ve never discussed this effort with him.)

“Conservatives can never gain final victory until they confront the problem of news organizations who are the real opposition party in America,” Flynn said. “This content-heavy spot puts before the public case studies that establish these organizations as partisan not journalistic organizations that are dedicated to activism, not the fearless pursuit of the truth.”

Here is how the PAC explains its efforts:

Obamacare Funds Being Used to Push Amnesty for Illegals

Obamacare was supposed to be about getting healthcare for those Americans–I emphasize, Americans–who fell through the system and were un-insured. But, like all government programs, it has failed to do what it set out to do. Worse, now we find healthcare dollars being used to push amnesty for illegals.

Rep. Lamar Smith (R-TX) recently demanded to know why Obamacare money is going to a campaign to push amnesty. Smith wrote a letter to House Appropriations Chair Harold Rogers (R-KY) and demanded that the program be defunded.

Smith points to a $15 million grant hidden in Obamacare’s Prevention and Public Health Fund given to the California Endowment, a purported healthcare agency in the Golden State.

Politico Claims it’s ‘Unclear’ if Colorado Healthcare Plan Cancellations are Fault of Obamacare

-By Warner Todd Huston

The Senate race in Colorado has begun to turn in favor of the Republicans over the last few months but that favor may grow as this week it was learned that some 22,000 citizens are losing their healthcare plans. But Politico claims it is “unclear” if those cancellations are a result of Obamacare.

On Friday, only weeks before voters go to the polls, the Colorado Division of Insurance announced that 22,000 Coloradoans were losing their insurance plans this year and another 200,000 will likely lose theirs in 2015.

The announcement could not have come at a worse time for incumbent Democrat Senator Mark Udall whose campaign has recently begun to flounder in the face of a surging Republican opponent.

Surprising many in the Centennial State, Congressman Cory Gardner has jumped ahead of the long-time Senator and this massive wave of healthcare insurance policy cancellations could drive even more Republicans and independents to the polls next month.

ProPublica Notes Blacks Killed More by Police, But Doesn’t Note They Commit More Crimes

October 13, 2014 | Filed Under Crime, Democrats/Leftists, Ethics, FBI, Government Corruption, Liberals, Nanny State, Progressives, Warner Todd Huston | Comments Off

-By Warner Todd Huston

A recent report by ProPublica finds that young black males are 21 time more likely to be shot and killed by police than are others. But the report does not take note that young black men are also disproportionately involved in crime.

The ProPublica report found that of the “1,217 deadly police shootings from 2010 to 2012 captured in the federal data show that blacks, age 15 to 19, were killed at a rate of 31.i7 per million, while just 1.47 per million white males in that age range died at the hands of police.”

ProPubica goes on to say that the statistics it uncovered supports the claim from African Americans that they are unfairly targeted by police. “Blacks are being killed at disturbing rates when set against the rest of the American population,” the news site contends.

A professor from Colin Loftin, University at Albany told ProPublica, “No question, there are all kinds of racial disparities across our criminal justice system.”

“The finding that young black men are 21 times as likely as their white peers to be killed by police is drawn from reports filed for the years 2010 to 2012, the three most recent years for which FBI numbers are available,” ProPublica wrote.

Republican Leaders Pushing Wealth Redistribution

Traditionally, Republicans are supposed to be against the redistribution of wealth in the USA. But it seems times may be changing with at least three purportedly conservative leaders in Congress suddenly advocating for at least some income redistribution.

According to Fortune magazine three major congressional Republican leaders are floating plans that call for some sort of redistribution.

Republican Senators Mike Lee and Marco Rubio have recently proposed what they are calling a pro-family and pro-growth tax reform plan that would refigure tax rates from the current seven brackets to only two; 15 and 35 percent.

NY School Bans National Guard T-Shirt Because: GUNS!

A New York school took quick action to ban t-shirts being handed out by a New York National Guard recruiter because the shirt “promoted violence” since it had an drawing of a U.S. soldier in battledress on it. And, *gasp*, the drawing of the soldier was holding an evil, evil GUN!

Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk High School in Ravena, New York, said that the Guard recruiter’s t-shirts were “inappropriate” and violated the school’s dress code because of the gun image.

“They’re not allowed to wear anything that would have a weapon on it,” district Interim Superintendent Alan McCartney told the Times Union. “Our main purpose is education. Wearing pictures of weapons brings to mind those things in our society that are not pertinent to education.”

So, even mentioning America’s fighting forces is “not pertinent to education”? This man is an idiot who should be fired just because he is plainly too stupid to be in “education.”

Freedom-Schmeedom: Obama to Force Photographers in National Parks to Get Permits

Ansel Adams made himself and our national parks famous for photographing the natural beauty he found in the great American west. Now, in this land of “freedom and liberty,” Obama plans to prevent any more Ansel Adams by forcing photographers to get permits to be allowed to photograph our parks.

The stunning black and white photos Adams took of the American west, especially Yosemite National Park, are the very ideal of natural beauty preserved by the snap of his lens. Adams roamed freely in this land of the free and captured images that have been beloved by naturalists all around the world.

But now Obama is planning to put a stranglehold on new Ansel Adams by controlling who is *allowed* to take photos in our national parks with a new “permit” system. Worse, Obama plans to charge up to $1,500 for these permits according to a report by the Associated Press.

Reason.tv went to the silly “climate march” in New York City last weekend and took some revealing video of halfwits that attended showing that most of them don’t have the first real, solid idea what they want to happen to address the problem they claimed they were marching for. But there did seem to be a consensus that capitalists need to be put in jail and the rest of us need to “do without” modern conveniences like cell phones, and the air conditioning, heating, and powering of our homes.

The sad fact is that the (mostly) aging hippies that appeared at the rally didn’t seem to have any real grasp of what sort of solutions they wanted to solve “climate change.” Instead, most just fell into rote, anti-capitalist yammering.

It seems pretty obvious that the saying “green is the new red” is perfectly apropos to these numbskulls.

One goofball even noted that he and his leftist cohorts would raise a “resistance” and mount an “actual revolution” against capitalism. I think this goof may find that other might love to inject a little lead poisoning into his campaign.

All in all, this video shows what sort of wackos, misfits, throwbacks, and fools people the climate change movement.

Naturally, when they left, the place was a total pig sty mess. These so-called environmentally conscious protesters left garbage feet deep and everywhere.

FDR Invented The ‘Liar-In-Chief’ And Tore Down the Democrat Party And The Country

-By Warner Todd Huston

PBS and documentary maker Ken Burns have done it again with a wonderful look at the political lives of Teddy and Franklin Roosevelt. But if the series did anything it revealed to a discerning viewer how Franklin rebuilt the presidency on a pillar of hate and lies and remade the Democrat Party into a party driven by purposeful misdirection and deceit.

Certainly the series approaches these two consequential presidents as good for the country. Neither were as salubrious for the country as popular opinion holds and both did a lot of damage. To Burns’ credit he does allow conservative commentator George Will to slip in a few digs at how both Teddy and Franklin tore down the presidency and turned our country from a constitutional republic built on a pretty straightforward explication of the political raison d’être of any particular party, candidate or era and into a nation run by sneaky politicians who lie straight-faced to the people and don’t care about the Constitution at all.

Teddy Roosevelt did his bit to end our Constitutional republic, granted, and was followed by Woodrow Wilson who pounded a few more nails into that coffin. But it was Franklin Delano Roosevelt who really destroyed the country.

The truth is, Franklin was an utterly failed president in everything but his leadership in WWII. It has to be acknowledged that his stewardship of the war was great and maybe a lesser president would have left the US more vulnerable. But there is no doubt that he materially hurt this country in every other arena.

His domestic policy was a disaster, his economic policies utterly failed, and his disregard of the rule of law and the US Constitution was a disgusting display of arrogance and hubris. By forcing the world into war, Hitler ended the Great depression, not Franklin Roosevelt.

Obama’s Illinois perennially ranks at the very bottom of every statistic that marks a successful state and a new report on America’s “sinkhole states” finds that Illinois again ranks at the very bottom this time for how much state debt each citizen is saddled with.

The statistics gathered by the excellent Chicago-based budget watchdog group Truth In Accounting calculated how much state debt–obligations like pensions, healthcare plans for retirees, etc–each citizen would have to pay to retire the debt in a lump sum.

The group has dubbed the worst states as “America’s Sinkhole States.”

Truth In Accounting found that Connecticut is the worst state in the union with each citizens owing 48 thousand dollars per citizen to retire the debt. But coming in a close second is the state of Illinois with a whopping 43 thousand dollars per citizen in debt.

Moving to Canada? Good For Burger King
-By Warner Todd Huston

Liberals are aghast with the news that fast food giant Burger King might move its headquarters to Canada if it buys out the Canadian fast food chain Tim Hortons. Libs are mad that BK is doing this to skip out on paying America’s confiscatory taxes. Well, I say good for BK!

The accusation BK is facing from America’s capitalism-hating lefties is that by taking over Tim Hortons and moving its HQ to Canada, BK is skipping out on its patriotic duty to pay the American corporate tax rate–which happens to be the highest tax rate in the industrialized, western world.

First of all, it is nothing short of a crime that Canada… CANADA… has a lower corporate tax rate than the United States of America. That’s right, commie Canada has lower taxes and a better business climate than the country famously built on capitalism.

Fraser Nelson of The Spectator did some number crunching recently and found a shocking fact: Britain is poorer than every State in the USA but one.

As Nelson wrote on August 22, “if Britain were to somehow leave the EU and join the US … we’d be the 2nd-poorest state in the union, poorer than Missouri. Poorer than the much-maligned Kansas and Alabama. Poorer than any state other than Mississippi, and if you take out the south east we’d be poorer than that too.”

This is both shocking and disheartening, especially to American liberals. The liberals all assume that Great Britain is still the jewel of Europe pointing to its nearly 100 percent socialist-styled government as a model of perfection. But it turns out that decades of socialism has laid Britain low making it worse off than every state in the USA but Mississippi…. and with Britain’s jihadi problem, one would think it would be better to be a bit poorer in Mississippi than be forced to live in Britain!

In the bad old days when Kings reigned and the various classes of royalty vied for position the only danger for the “ruling class” was the fear that another member of their class might strike a blow against them. Unlike the lower classes, the rulers of antiquity were immune from the vagaries of life and out of reach of the law. In fact, there was no law. Unfortunately, we are headed right back in that scheme of life.

But one of the societal schemes that the founders of our country set about the task of destroying was that of the divine right of kings, the idea that royalty is subject to no earthly authority.

The founders wanted to create a society that allowed for social mobility among all citizens. They wanted a meritocracy where people could get ahead from the result of their own work and abilities. Above all they wanted a stable rule of law so that such stability could fuel growth.

For nearly 200 years their model worked admirably. But thanks to the drive toward communism starting at the end of the 1800s it appears that the founders’ societal invention has been destroyed.

The question for today is this: are we are living at the end of the American way of life? Has it been destroyed so badly that it is unable to be returned with the mere election of new leaders?

It became clear that the initial stories were incorrect and that it wasn’t six in New York but six spread out across the country.

Well, one American found out that calling a Congresscritter could result in an attack on him by the IRS just because he had the gall to call and ask questions.

A writer for PJ Media called the office of Texas Democrat Sheila Jackson Lee and instead of being treated professionally by this woman’s staffers, the writer was called names and his questions were ignored.

The writer called the Democrat’s office because on the floor of Congress she uttered an outright lie and the writer was seeking a comment on the incident.

On July 30, Jackson Lee said that Democrats “did not seek an impeachment of President Bush, because as an executive, he had the authority.”
