Some analysts believed President Obama waited until after the midterm elections to announce his unilateral immigration-reform package to give Democrats a better chance to keep control of the Senate.

If that was the case, the plan didn’t work out, with the GOP set to be the majority party starting in January.

But conservative icon Phyllis Schlafly believes Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder also used the Michael Brown shooting in Ferguson, Missouri, for political purposes.

“I think that Obama and his attorney general really fomented [unrest] in order to hopefully win the election on November 4,” Schlafly said. “They wanted to inflame people in order to get their voters out to vote. I think it was deliberately done, and they weren’t content to just let the process take its course.

“I think it has backfired, and the Republicans won a tremendous victory despite everything,” she added.

A grand jury is deciding the fate of Officer Darren Wilson. An announcement on whether there will be charges could come any day.

Schlafly, whose recently published book “Who Killed the American Family?” came out just days before she turned 90, said Obama and Holder will be culpable if riots break out in Ferguson.

“But whether the public will see it that way, I don’t know,” she said.

Schlafly, who lives in the St. Louis area, said she and her fellow St. Louis residents are on pins and needles over the threat of violent protests.

“All the St. Louisans are really worried and upset,” she said. “They think all the Democrats who have said anything have simply inflamed the problem.”

The unrest in Ferguson is not the only bubbling controversy in the country right now. On Thursday, Obama announced deportation relief for up to 5 million people currently in the U.S. illegally.

Schlafly said she thinks that move, like the work in Ferguson, was done for political reasons.

“Obama’s moving ahead with his attempt to do all kinds of illegal things in order to bring in illegal aliens and give the Democrats more votes,” she said. “That’s what it’s for.”

The veteran activist said she has talked to many immigrants who came to the U.S. as teenagers two or three generations ago. Their parents taught them to leave their native ways behind and fully immerse themselves in America.

“Those people came in and became 200 percent Americans,” …read more

Official bio ties Gruber to crafting of Obamacare

While the Obama administration has sought to distance itself from MIT Professor Jonathan Gruber, WND has found the professor’s official bio at a university project known to be close to the White House boasts that Gruber helped to craft Obamacare.

Gruber’s bio at the Hamilton Project, an economic initiative launched by the Brookings Institution in 2006, reads: “During 2009-2010 he served as a technical consultant to the Obama Administration and worked with both the Administration and Congress to help craft the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.”

Obama himself spoke at the 2006 launch of the Hamilton Project, where he stated he had stolen ideas “liberally” from Gruber.

Obama is quite familiar with the Hamilton Project. Not only did he speak at the project’s launch event, some of its experts wound up in his administration.

Hamilton Project Director Peter Richard Orszag served under Obama as director of the Office of Management and Budget, the largest office within the executive branch.

Video recently unearthed by the Washington Free Beacon shows Obama speaking at the 2006 Hamilton Project launch event praising Gruber and other liberal economic policy experts as some of the “brightest minds” in academia.

“Many of them I have stolen ideas from liberally, people ranging from [economist] Robert Gordon to [economist] Austan Goolsbee [to] Jon Gruber,” Obama said.

Last weekend, however, Obama attempted to distance himself from Gruber.

“The fact that an adviser who was never on our staff expressed an opinion that I completely disagree with in terms of the voters is not a reflection on the actual process that was run,” Obama replied when asked about Gruber at a news conference in Brisbane, Australia, after the G-20 summit.

Gruber, an economics professor, has been making headlines for candid statements on Obamacare captured on video.

He said regarding the passage of Obamacare that “lack of transparency is a huge political advantage.”

“And basically, call it the stupidity of the American voter or whatever, but basically that was really, really critical to get anything to pass,” he said.

Gruber conceded the bill might have lost support if voters had known that healthier individuals would pay more to subsidize the sick.

In an interview with MSNBC, Gruber apologized for remarks documented in the first of a number of videos that recently surfaced.

“The comments in the video were made at an academic conference,” Gruber said. “I was speaking off the cuff. I basically spoke inappropriately. I regret having made those comments.”

Family beats Obamacare in fight over abortion charges

November 22, 2014 Uncategorized No Comments

By Bob Unruh


Hundreds of lawsuits have been filed against Obamacare, it’s been to the U.S. Supreme Court twice and is headed for a third visit, possibly even a fourth, and hundreds of millions of dollars have been spent promoting and facilitating the health-care takeover.

But one family, the Bracy family from Connecticut, took it on, and won.

The family voluntarily dropped a lawsuit after state officials removed a requirement that all health-plan participants in the state pay an abortion surcharge.

“Americans should not have to pay a special fee for other people’s abortions in order to take care of their own family’s health,” said Senior Counsel Casey Mattox of the Alliance Defending Freedom, which represented Barth Bracy’s family.

“The Bracy family has experience first-hand the kind of deception that was used to pass and that continues to preface this law,” Mattox said. “While we are pleased that Connecticut families will now have a choice to avoid paying this abortion surcharge, it is a shame that other families won’t have that choice, and that most Americans don’t even know that they must pay this secret fee.”

ADF had filed a lawsuit on behalf of the family but then withdrew it when the state made changes that were being sought in the court complaint.

In a filing in federal court in Connecticut, a stipulation outlines how the defendants, the federal Health and Human Services Agency and others “have arranged for a number of health insurance plans to be offered through Access Health CT that exclude coverage of all abortions other than those for which federal taxpayer dollars may be used.”

“Access Health CT representatives will be informed which plans do not include coverage of abortions other than those for which federal taxpayer dollars may be used, so that they may inform customers seeking such a plan.”

According to ADF, even though federal law forbids taxpayer subsidies for elective abortions, the Obamacare law “requires every exchange plan that includes abortion to collect a separate fee that is used exclusively to pay for abortions.”

The law even specifies that consumers cannot be told about the charge.

In Connecticut, the problem developed when the state health exchange “only offered plans that include abortion coverage, and thus every plan on the exchange required the hidden abortion surcharge,” ADF said.

Barth and Abbie Bracy had insurance through a private insurer but lost their coverage because of Obamacare. Forced onto the state exchange, they found that every plan included …read more

Obama amnesty supporters clash with protesters in Vegas

Some of the protesters who greeted President Obama's motorcade as it pulled into Del Sol High School in Las Vegas, Nevada, Friday, Nov. 21.
Some of the protesters who greeted President Obama’s motorcade as it pulled into Del Sol High School in Las Vegas, Nevada, Friday, Nov. 21.

President Obama came to Las Vegas, Nevada, Friday afternoon to promote his plan to grant amnesty to up to 5 million illegal aliens, saying he was forced to act alone because Congress wouldn’t.

Greeting him were about 250 protesters on one side of the street and roughly half as many supporters on the other side as his motorcade pulled into Del Sol High School. Both sides carried signs, everything from “We Love Obama” to “Deport Obama” and “No Amnesty!”

“There was some yelling between our side and an Obama supporter but the police separated him,” said Robin Hvidston, executive director of We the People Rising, a group based in Orange County, California, that traveled to Las Vegas to protest along with Overpasses for America and other groups. “It was a middle-aged guy who came up and started yelling at us, calling us racist.”

Obama arrived at the high school about 12:50 p.m. local time. The protesters were there since morning and the Obama supporters showed up about an hour before the president’s arrival, sources on the ground told WND. The two sides were facing off with signs. On a phone line, WND could hear men on loudspeakers shouting, “Impeach Obama!”

Hvidston said some local people came and joined the protest after seeing a report on the local Fox 5 News affiliate.

“We have a lot of patriots here, a lot of signs, a lot of enthusiasm, and we’re just waiting to see him pass by so he can see our signs,” Hvidston told WND about 10 minutes before the presidential motorcade pulled into the school. “The students are lined up at the high school waiting to go into the auditorium. Lots of local media and TV coverage. We’re directly across the street (from the school) on the public sidewalk.”

She said the local police were “very accommodating to freedom of speech.”

Signs read “Impeach Obama,” “Amnesty Hell NO!” “Stop illegal immigration,” and “Deport Illegals, Hire U.S. Workers.” One protester distilled his feelings in a single word: “TREASON!”

“So he’s going to have quite the welcoming when he gets here,” Hvidston said.

Del Sol is a majority Hispanic high school in a fairly affluent area.

“There are Hispanic high schools in other areas of Vegas that are much less affluent and he always comes to this …read more

Harry Reid slams White House: ‘Get a life’

November 22, 2014 Uncategorized No Comments

By -NO AUTHOR- (National Review) The family feud between President Obama and soon-to-be Senate minority leader Harry Reid escalated this week, after the Nevada Democrat told the White House to “get a life” for its continued anger over remarks made by one of his top aides.

The New York Times reports that the rift between Reid and the Obama administration over David Krone, Reid’s top staff member, who made a series of highly critical remarks about the president earlier this month. Krone was already banned from attending White House meetings with Reid, following rumors that he leaked details of meetings between the then-majority leader and the president to the press.

By -NO AUTHOR- (Washington Examiner) Up to 30,000 missing emails sent by former Internal Revenue Service official Lois Lerner have been recovered by the IRS inspector general, five months after they were deemed lost forever.

The U.S. Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) informed congressional staffers from several committees on Friday that the emails were found among hundreds of “disaster recovery tapes” that were used to back up the IRS email system.

“They just said it took them several weeks and some forensic effort to get these emails off these tapes,” a congressional aide told the Washington Examiner.

The governments of Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras praised President Obama’s executive actions effectively granting amnesty to up to 5 million illegal aliens, promising to increase their consular services in the U.S. to protect the “human rights” of their migrating citizens.

“More that 100,000 Guatemalans will be able to benefit from President Obama’s executive action,” boasted President Otto Pérez Molina in a Twitter message.

Molina said that in December and January, his government will be “opening more consulates in the United States to take care of Guatemalans.”

“The most important document for Guatemalans to obtain in the United States is a passport,” he said. “We hope to facilitate the necessary procedures. We want to reiterate our commitment to provide consular protection and assistance to Guatemalans in the United States to ensure respect for their fundamental human rights.”

El Salvador Secretary of Government Communications Hasto Hasbún issued a statement highlighting the efforts of El Salvador President Sanchez Caren to ensure the human rights of citizens who migrate illegally to the United States.

“We welcome the action taken by President Obama as a triumph for human rights and an important first step in the quest to achieve comprehensive immigration reform,” he said.

El Salvador Foreign Minister Hugo Martinez said Obama’s executive action “will be implemented to the benefit of millions of undocumented immigrants who are now in the United States.”

“This announcement will give temporary immigration status relief to many El Salvadorans in the United States, while the administration of President Sanchez Caren continues to hope the U.S. congress will approve comprehensive immigration reform to give a permanent solution to our fellow citizens in the United States,” Martinez said.

Martinez added that the El Salvador Ministry of Foreign Affairs now plans to work with the El Salvador consular network in the United States “to make sure the El Salvadoran community throughout the United States is fully informed” of Obama’s executive orders and to help implement them.

In Honduras, the government said Obama’s executive actions will benefit tens of thousands of Honduran families living in the United States. It noted that Hondurans in the U.S., along with their U.S.-born children, will have the assurance they will not be subject to deportation for at least three years.

“On behalf of millions of Central Americans and Hondurans, we …read more

November 21, 2014 Uncategorized No Comments

By -NO AUTHOR- (BREITBART) Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush called on Congress to pass bipartisan comprehensive amnesty legislation after President Barack Obama unilaterally granted nearly five million illegal immigrants executive amnesty on Thursday.

Bush, a potential 2016 presidential candidate who has come under fire for his support for comprehensive amnesty legislation and Common Core, said Obama’s “ill-advised unilateral action on illegal immigration undermines all efforts to forge a permanent solution to this crisis.”

But he said the GOP-led Congress should act on a comprehensive amnesty bill.

Americans ‘mad at government’ melt phones on Capitol Hill

Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala.
Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala.

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Phone lines are melting on Capitol Hill with outraged citizens calling their elected representatives to complain about the president’s order effectively granting amnesty to illegal immigrants.

A number of Capitol Hill offices closed today for the Thanksgiving recess, but aides report hearing from upset voters even at the offices in lawmakers’ home states.

The office of Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., confirmed a flood of complaints, and an aide to Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., told WND, “We are getting tons of phone calls to block executive amnesty.”

“I don’t think the American people are mad at immigrants. They fully understand that immigrants would like to come to America. They’re mad at their government and their politicians. That’s what the anger is about, because we refuse to do the right thing,” Sessions said today in remarks made at the Heritage Foundation in Washington.

Sessions said “the situation is worse than you know,” noting an Obama administration official had told him the chances for a typical illegal immigrant being deported were now virtually nil.

The crucial question articulated by the senator was, “Do we believe in open borders or do we believe in a sovereign state that controls the entrance and exit to its country?”

As for the claim the country needs skilled workers to fill high-tech jobs, Sessions argued wages in the industry haven’t gone up since 2000, and Microsoft recently laid off 18,000 employees.

“The average working truck driver is working just as much as (Facebook founder) Mr. Zuckerberg. Just as much as the Wall Street masters of the universe. And who’s representing them? If you want to be able to lead the American people you should serve their interests,” said Sessions.

He added, “I don’t think this nation finds a crisis of lack of workers, we face a crisis of a lack of jobs,” he said.

He also pointed out the GOP was lectured it wouldn’t win any more elections without immigration reform, yet just had a landslide victory with a higher percentage of Hispanics voting for Republicans than ever before.

He concluded that those pushing so-called comprehensive immigration reform were either wrong or “have money at stake,” in a reference to big businesses seeking cheap labor.

“I think we need to talk about that and take our case to the American people, and I believe it will resonate because it is right and just,” reflected the senator.

Sessions is hardly alone …read more

Top hosts reveal how to stop Obama’s amnesty

November 21, 2014 Uncategorized No Comments

By Kathy Shaidle


Michael Savage

Now that the president has declared “amnesty” for millions of illegals, Michael Savage has some advice to Republicans on how to fight back – and it doesn’t involved wielding the proverbial “power of the purse.”

That tactic has been tried before and failed, Savage reminded his listeners this week.

Instead, Savage noted, “If the executive order is based on a statute, Congress can change the statute, thereby nullifying the order. Come January, the first day – instead of all the ceremony – call [Congress] back in session. Go to the mats and change the statute. Day One.”

Savage also played a key role in a “good news” story: A wounded Army soldier was reunited after 16 months with the Czech German shepherd who helped him hunt buried explosives in Afghanistan.

The Army admitted it had mistakenly allowed the dog, Matty, to be given up for adoption instead of being turned over to his handler, Spc. Brent Grommet. After a campaign spearheaded by Savage, the dog was returned to Grommet.

Savage described the story as worthy of a movie.

Rush Limbaugh

Despite recent statements from Barack Obama that he’s neither king nor emperor of the United States, radio host Rush Limbaugh says the president is, in fact, an emperor by using executive action to grant amnesty to millions of illegal aliens.

Limbaugh was analyzing Obama’s own remarks when the president stated on numerous occasions he did not have the legal power to grant amnesty.

“He is an emperor, and he’s going to prove it whenever he does this,” Limbaugh said Wednesday (Free audio).

“Ladies and gentlemen, your beloved host has once again hijacked the debate on this issue in the United States Senate this afternoon,” Limbaugh said on the eve of the president’s amnesty address.

He played a clip of Democrat Senator of New York Chuck Schumer addressing his colleagues: “The other side says it’s amnesty. They’re listening to Rush Limbaugh. Amnesty, amnesty, amnesty! Amnesty means you get away with it without paying a price.”

Aaron Klein

Klein invited his listeners to call in and help him draft articles of impeachment against Obama.

“Do your homework,” Klein said, “and get ready to call in with what you think are Obama’s most impeachable acts.”

Klein also debated a spokesperson for Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas’s Fatah organization. He pressed him about Fatah’s role in the recent surge in violence against Jewish civilians in Jerusalem.
