    On Wednesday, President Obama threatened to veto the House of Representatives’ proposed border bill. Obama particularly disliked provisions of the bill designed to amend the 2008 law that allows illegal immigrant minors from non-border countries to stick around for years awaiting deportation proceedings. His statement explained: By setting arbitrary timelines for the processing of cases, this bill could create backlogs that could ultimately shift resources away from priority public safety [...]

Battleground Ferguson, Missouri

Truth and accuracy mean nothing to the left as they use every possible tactic to instigate racial unrest and violence in the embattled town of Ferguson, MO. There where black youths take each other’s lives with a frightening frequency and yet blame whites for their self-created dilemmas, the battle cry of the liberal utilizes hatred and racism as a substitute for well-informed insight.

Sanctioned urban conflict

Let’s bring back the hatred of decades ago so that the antics of the Jesse Jacksons and the Al Sharptons of today will seem relevant again! How can we possibly be nostalgic over the racism of the past? Answer. No one in their right mind would be, but for the race baiters like AG Eric Holder who just sent 40 FBI agents to Ferguson in an obvious attempt to politicize the results of an investigation that has been delayed by insurrection orchestrated by the Obama White House as the city burns.

How the left rolls

Remember Communist regimes rise after organizing the insanity of social unrest by using false narratives and demonizing the innocent as class warfare, racism, and propaganda overtake rational thinking and truth. In Ferguson we have an argument against militarizing local police as they are told to stand down while being bombed by Molotov cocktails as supposed medical students from the esteemed medical university nearby take part in burning down the city and looting. Now the very governor who loathes police using military surplus hardware has called in the National Guard. What a coincidence!

Ignoring the truth

Even though the initial autopsy report showed Michael Brown, the alleged victim who was supposedly assassinated by a policeman, as having frontal entry wounds from the six bullets that killed him, false allegations now claim that the unarmed black youth was hit from behind and had already surrendered. Why

Americans Say Their Favorite Robin Williams Movie Is…

No wonder Hollywood was planning a sequel to “Mrs. Doubtfire.” An overwhelming number of Americans say they have seen a film starring the late Robin Williams, and that film is their favorite.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 86% of American Adults share a favorable opinion of the actor and comedian who committed suicide earlier this week. This includes 52% with a Very Favorable view. Just eight percent (8%) have a somewhat or Very Unfavorable opinion of Williams. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

Sabato: 2014: More Than a Backlash From 2008

Sabato: 2014: More Than a Backlash From 2008

The 2014 Senate elections are not shaping up to be particularly favorable for the Democrats. While there are still scenarios where they could walk away breaking even, or even gaining a seat or two, those scenarios are pretty far-fetched. Current predictions vary somewhat, but seem to center around Republicans picking up somewhere between five and seven seats, with the overall range of possibilities a bit wider.

The nonpartisan explanations for this state of affairs have centered around three different factors: the president is unpopular, the president’s party always loses seats in midterm elections, and the Democrats overperformed in 2008, setting them up for a rough year in 2014 (you can see Bill Schneider making all three arguments here). In this article, I’ll briefly discuss all three explanations, and then add a fourth.

Very little needs to be said about the first factor: The relationship between presidential approval and electoral outcomes has been thoroughly explored, and I have little to add. Likewise, the tendency of the president’s party to fare poorly in midterm elections is so well-known as to require only an asterisk here: While the president’s party has lost House seats in all but two post-World War II midterm elections (1998 and 2002), it has gained or broken even in Senate seats in five (1962, 1970, 1982, 1998, and 2002). That’s somewhere between a third and a quarter of the postwar midterms, so our rule here is not really as “real” as it is for House elections.

Evaluating the third factor is a bit dicier. There are doubtless examples of elections where the president’s party is so overextended from earlier wins that losses became almost inevitable: The large Democratic gains in 1986 were certainly a function of the huge Republican gains in 1980. Likewise, in 1958 the Democrats were able to

Gary Peters Plays Both Sides of Energy Debate for Dollars

Gary Peters Plays Both Sides of Energy Debate for Dollars

Thanks to recent financial disclosures, Michigan Congressman and Senate candidate Gary Peters has been caught playing every side of the energy debate in ways that benefit his campaign coffers, as well as his own pocket.

From here, it only gets worse for Peters. He may as well simply hang a “For Sale” sign around his neck and be done with it. There’s some history below that makes this even worse for Peters.

Gary Peters has been a vocal critic of oil companies while continually blocking the expansion of drilling throughout his political career, including ANWR. In addition, his campaign has made environmental issues a top focus of the Michigan Senate race this year.

With this in mind, Peters’ financial disclosure paints a different picture as reports indicate he has a large investment in the French oil company, Total S.A. France. According to their website, they are the fifth largest publicly-traded integrated international oil and gas company in the world. Peters’ connection to a large French oil company raises some eyebrows considering his staunch stance as a defender of environmental interests here in the United States.

Total S.A. France holds interests in 21 refineries around the world, including the United States, Europe, the French West Indies, Africa, the Middle East, and China.

Flashback to May and a “secret meeting” with “Democrat money man Tom Steyer” and one begins to appreciate the level of Gary Peters’ duplicity. If there were a third side to the energy debate and it was capable of writing a check, it appears Gary Peters’ would be on that side, too.

But the Peters campaign now faces a potentially devastating ad attacking him for his opposition to the Keystone Pipeline. The ad is noteworthy because it links Peters’

Report: After WH Meets with Big Biz, Obama May Use Exec Actions to Increase Guest-Worker Visas

After White House officials reportedly met with big-business groups, President Barack Obama is considering executive actions that will give them more guest-worker visas in the high-tech and low-skilled sectors.

This may come on top of Obama’s potential grants of amnesty and work permits to millions of illegal immigrants in the country. While outside groups are urging Obama to “go big,” Senate Democrats have expressed some concerns of late, as poll numbers have shown that executive amnesty may cost them control of the Senate. The White House is reportedly reaching out to big-business groups on guest-worker visas so they can give Obama air cover on his potential executive amnesty.

According to a Politico report, senior White House aides earlier this month met with “more than a dozen business groups and company officials to discuss potential immigration policy changes they could make.” According to the outlet, “Oracle, Cisco, Fwd.US, Microsoft, Accenture, Compete America, and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce” were represented at the meeting.

Facebook co-founder Mark Zuckerberg’s FWD.us has poured in millions of dollars to Democrats and Republicans to push for amnesty legislation, specifically an increase in the number of their coveted high-tech guest-worker visas. Cisco recently slashed another 6,000 jobs after pushing for amnesty legislation. Microsoft announced it would lay off 18,000 American workers a week after its former CEO Bill Gates called for an unlimited number of certain guest-worker visas in a New York Times op-ed. And the Chamber of Commerce has vowed to spend $50 million for amnesty legislation and more guest-worker visas.

In its analysis of the Senate’s amnesty bill, the Congressional Budget office determined that an increase in the number of such visas would lower the wages of American workers, and a recent Census report found that “74% of those with

Amnesty International: Ferguson Police Violated International Human Rights Law

Monday on “Democracy Now,” host Amy Goodman spoke with Steven Hawkins, executive director of Amnesty International USA, who claimed his organization sent a 13-person delegation to observe the protests and riots in Ferguson, MO because there is an “escalating human rights crisis.”

Hawkins said, “We sent observers down because there was a need for Human rights observers, clearly there are violations of international human rights law and standards in terms of how the policing is being done on protests.”

This “unprecedented” move is the first time Amnesty International has sent observers inside the United States.

Former NFL QB Competes on ‘The Biggest Loser’

Scott Mitchell looks like he ate Wayne Fontes. The former Detroit Lions quarterback competes on NBC’s Biggest Loser this season. He weighs in at 366 pounds, 33 pounds heavier than the largest lineman on the current Lions roster.

Mitchell faces some soft competition.

The sports-themed season features 483-pound Rob Guiry, the head rugby coach at Western New England University, 283-pound physical education teacher Sonya Jones, and 366-pound Vanessa Hayden, who, until four years ago, occupied a roster spot in the WNBA.

They all let themselves go. Now they’re looking to let the pounds go.

Damien Woody, who won two Super Bowls with the Patriots and now analyzes the NFL for ESPN, tips the scales at 388. That’s just 58 pounds over his playing weight, so dropping a large number of pounds might come harder for the former lineman than it does for his fellow competitors.

The season premieres on September 11.

O’Reilly: Obama a Performance Failure, Not Patriotic Fail

Back in February, in an appearance on ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” “The O’Reilly Factor” host Bill O’Reilly recounted his pre-Super Bowl interview with President Barack Obama. O’Reilly called it the toughest interview of his life, but also said he considered Obama to be a “patriot.”

Shortly thereafter, O’Reilly took criticism for those remarks, but he stuck to them.

On his Wednesday night broadcast, O’Reilly revisited those remarks in responding to a viewer’s email and said he still believes Obama to “patriot” but called his policies a “performance failure” and not a “patriotic failure.”

“Daniel Plum, Cable, WI – ‘O’Reilly, your ‘Talking Points’ continued to prove President Obama is failing as the leader of the free world. Do you still believe he is a patriot?’” O’Reilly said. “I am so glad you asked that question, Dan. When I said that to Jimmy [Kimmel] a few months ago, some on the right got very upset with me. So, here’s the deal. I believe Barack Obama sincerely wants to help the have-nots in America. I believe that. That’s patriotic. But I also believe, based on the facts, that his policies have largely failed to do that and have even brought less prosperity to the poor precincts. That is a performance failure, not a patriotic failure.”

Watch CNN Treat Terrorist with More Respect Than GOP

The first video below is from Monday. For some indefensible reason, CNN allows savage barbaric terrorists to appear on its network. Hamas is an organization dedicated to the destruction, not only of Israel, but of all Jews around the world. Hamas targets and murders innocent women and children. Hamas uses women and children as human shields in Gaza.

Watch, though, how polite, respectful and deferential CNN is to Hamas spokesman Osama Hamdan, who recently claimed that Jews use Christian blood to make matzoh. Then compare it to the 3 videos below that where CNN does its usual-usual brutal cross examination of Republicans who dare disagree with CNN’s big government agenda.

Forget the moral illiteracy CNN is showing by interviewing these terrorists in the first place — why not interview neo-Nazis, al Qaeda, or the KKK? — when it comes to presenting the Hamas point of view, for three-plus weeks CNN has treated these savages with more respect than they ever have the Tea Party or GOP.

Note: I’m not singling Blitzer out by using his interviews. It just seems fair to compare apples to apples.

The bottom line is that if you want a fair hearing on CNN, don’t oppose the federal government, do kill innocent Jews and Palestinians.

Rosetta probe successfully orbits comet

ESA’s Rosetta probe has made history as the first to orbit a comet, and is set to reach another landmark in space travel if it can successfully land on comet 67P. The Rosetta mission hopes to find information on how comets are affected by the sun, and maybe even to discover if it is possible that life on earth could have been created by a comet hitting the earth.

While the Rosetta mission has been active for over a decade, interest in space travel is receiving more and more press, and international competition in space has spawned a new iteration of the space race, with China’s lunar landing, and Russia’s planned expedition to the moon in 2030. However, this time the players aren’t limited to government ventures, but also venture capitalists.

Billionaires Richard Branson and Elon Musk both have separate space ventures in Virgin Galactic and SpaceX, respectively, and according to results from 1World 84% think private companies are better suited than governments to improve space travel.

Despite the renewed interest in space travel, people are having serious doubts about the feasibility of Mars as a potential Earth colony. Colonizing Mars has long been a staple of science fiction books and movies, and NASA has even developed a saucer-shaped craft to attempt to land on the Red Planet.

Although we have been making serious developments into the final frontier 59% don’t think Mars will be successfully colonized, and 53% would consider travelling to Mars despite the 500 day flight (that’s a lot of in-flight movies). Check out the world map below to see where people are most interested in taking a trip to Mars.
