President Barack Obama expressed confidence on Wednesday that he would sign comprehensive immigration reform into law by the end of this year.

"You can tell our audience, ´Sí, se puede?´" Salinas asked. "Sí, se puede," Obama responded.

He was also confident that Chicago would get the Olympics, that democrats would pass his budgets, that cap & trade would win accolades, that if we liked our healthcare plan we could keep it, that a stimulus would create shovel-ready jobs...

Washington Times (D.C), by Ben Wolfgang    Original Article

For the second time in a week, President Obama is welcoming a bevy of Hollywood stars to the White House. The president on Tuesday night held a private screening of the new film “The Monuments Men,” based on the true World War II story of a special force commissioned to locate and save valuable pieces of art before they were destroyed by the Nazis. George Clooney, Bill Murray and Matt Damon, three of the film’s stars, attended. Grant Heslov, co-producer of the movie who also co-wrote its screenplay with Mr. Clooney, also accepted the administration’s invitation. Other attendees included Robert Edsel, author

I found myself sitting on a bar stool last winter next to Robert Caro at an Irish wake in Times Square for my irreplaceable Times colleague Frank Prial. I had an overpowering urge to grab Caro’s arm and shake him. For the love of Pete, I wanted to yelp at the 78-year-old historian who has spent 38 years chronicling Lyndon Johnson in more than 3,388 pages, was he ever going to get to Vietnam? But the shy, bespectacled writer picking at his hors d’oeuvres did not look like the sort of man who could be rushed. As Adam Nagourney wrote

Obama Signs an Executive Order
to Raise the Federal Minimum Wage
American Thinker, by David Lawrence    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 2/19/2014 4:33:20 AM     Post Reply
Does Obama really think that raising federal employees´ meager salaries from $7.25 to $10.10 an hour will change their lives? He is doing nothing for them and masquerading like the queen of generosity. Most federal employees earn far above the minimum wage. They are given excessive benefits. But what good will another $2.85 per hour do for those at minimum wage? Will it buy them Lamborghinis or pay for private planes to Paris? Whom is Obama kidding? There is no equality. Everyone can´t have the same. We can´t all live in the White House and fly around in Air Force One.

   

 

  


 
Democratic Rep. Gloria Negrete
McLeod of Chino won´t seek reelection

Rep. Gloria Negrete McLeod´s announcement Tuesday that she won´t seek reelection to her Inland Empire seat is likely to set up yet another internecine fight in a state that already has many. The Chino Democrat will leave Washington after just one term and run instead for a seat on the San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors, opening the door to others of her party, who might not have challenged her. Those could include the congressman she defeated in 2012, Joe Baca. Because of that, her choice also has the potential to shake up the field in the race for a

The marketable debt of the U.S. government has more than doubled--climbing by 106 percent--while President Barack Obama has been in office, increasing from $5,749,916,000,000 at the end of January 2009 to $11,825,322,000,000 at the end of January 2014, according to the U.S. Treasury´s latest Monthly Statement of the Public Debt. During the eight-year presidency of George W. Bush, the marketable debt of the U.S. government almost doubled--climbing 93 percent--from $2,977,328,000,000 at the end of January 2001 to $5,749,916,000,000 at the end of January 2009.

After President Obama knocked art history majors last month in off-the-cuff remarks, Dr. Ann Johns, an art history professor at the University of Texas, decided to send the president a message defending the work of art history professors and students. “It’s a changed discipline and I think in many ways it does prepare students very well for a complex global world,” Johns, a senior lecturer in the Department of Art and Art History, told ABC News today about the note she submitted to the president on the White House website. “Perhaps the idea of just going and looking at nice

In a speech marking the five-year anniversary of his $831 billion economic stimulus plan, President Barack Obama said on Tuesday that his plan, passed one month into his presidency, succeeded and that his critics were proven wrong and "have had to eat those words." Obama also touted his auto bailout and green energy initiatives as major successes. "Anybody who had dire predictions for the auto industry and said, ´We couldn´t do it. Manufacturers couldn´t bring jobs back to America.´ Every time they say that, they are proven wrong," said Obama. Obama added, "Anybody who says we can´t compete when it comes

Fires lit up central Kiev as Ukraine’s security forces launched an assault on protest camps in the heart of the capital after a day of bloodshed that claimed 18 lives. [Video] A long-feared attack on the demonstrators who have occupied central Kiev since December appeared to have begun on Tuesday evening. The interior ministry announced the onset of an “anti-terrorist” operation after setting a deadline of 6pm local time for the protests against President Viktor Yanukovych to end. Afterwards, central Kiev was sealed off and the metro closed down. Specialist riot police armed with assault rifles closed on Independence Square,

Congressional budget office: Minimum
wage hike raises income for
over 16.5M but cost 500K jobs
Associated Press, by Alan Fram    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 2/18/2014 4:04:46 PM     Post Reply
WASHINGTON— Boosting the federal minimum wage as President Barack Obama and congressional Democrats are proposing would increase earnings for more than 16.5 million people by 2016 but also cut employment by roughly 500,000 jobs, Congress´ nonpartisan budget analyst said Tuesday. In a report containing ammunition for both supporters and opponents of the Democratic election-year proposal, the Congressional Budget Office said gradually raising the minimum from $7.25 hourly to $10.10 would lift 900,000 people above the federal poverty level by 2016. That is out of 45 million who would otherwise live in poverty without an increase. But the analysis also noted

New Jersey is in a pickle as a rule of the high seas shuts off the flow of salt to keep roads clear. State officials are now being forced to turn to a briny pickle juice-like mixture as an alternative to de-ice the roads, while racing to get a federal waiver that is currently holding up a 40,000-ton shipment of rock salt. The salt is sitting at a port in Maine, docked until New Jersey officials obtain a federal waiver. Once that is done, it will take two days to ship the load from Maine to Newark. The shipment is

Controversial Nordic farms

Oslo- Fur has made a comeback on the world´s most important catwalks, fostering a thriving industry in the Nordic region to the dismay of animal rights activists. In the 1990s, supermodels like Claudia Schiffer, Cindy Crawford and Naomi Campbell posed in the buff for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) under the slogan "I´d Rather Go Naked Than Wear Fur" -- part of initiatives that helped make fur politically incorrect. Two decades later, mink and fox fur have become regulars in the most prestigious fashion shows. According to www.fashionista.com, 70 percent of designers used fur in their fall-winter

Drivers ticketed for failing to

A new law requiring motorists to remove snow and ice from their vehicles has become a new source of revenue for Connecticut. State police are aggressively ticketing drivers who ignore the so-called ´ice missile´ law. Since the law took effect Jan. 1, state police have issued at least 230 tickets to truckers and motorists who were driving snow-covered vehicles. At $120 per summons that amounts to $27,600 in tickets in a month and a half. The fine is $75, plus $45 in various surcharges.

Why Hillary Clinton´s past is

Washington Examiner [DC], by Byron York    Original Article

There´s a debate going on about Hillary Clinton´s past. If she runs for president in 2016, should Republicans reach back to the scandals of her years as First Lady? Or should they focus on more recent times, especially her tenure as Secretary of State, to build a case against her? The GOP doesn´t have to choose. Of course Clinton´s recent experiences are relevant to a presidential run. But so are her actions in the 90s, the 80s and even the 70s. It´s not ancient history; it reveals something about who Clinton was and still is. And re-examining her past is entirely consistent with practices in recent campaigns. In the 2012 presidential race,

NBC is under fire after one of its reporters questioned bronze medal winning skier Bode Miller so much about the death of his brother he began to sob uncontrollably. Correspondent Christin Cooper interviewed Miller just moments after he finished third in the Super G fnal, making him both the most medaled skier in history and the oldest person to win an alpine medal at the Games. [Snip] Miller was the first to bring up his brother, Chilly, a snowboarder who died in April from a seizure, but Cooper continued to push to the point that he had to walk away.

America’s Founding Fathers fiercely held to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness—values which Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) claimed align seamlessly with Obamacare. Pelosi explained why the law is “very sound policy” during a press conference Friday: To go to back to our founders once again, they sacrificed it all for life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. This law, the affordable care act, is about a healthier life, the liberty to pursue your happiness. That is solid policy, and the mandate is central to that. This argument should be added to the montage of lies being promulgated by the Obama

Geraldo Rivera got remarkably candid in a conversation with The Blaze’s Will Cain about his desire not to outlive his own fame. He even admitted that part of the reason he’s been to dangerous places like Libya and Iraq is because he’s “been looking to get killed in action for years.” Rivera said he doesn’t want to be one of those guys who, when they die, everyone will point out how great they used to be, and that’s why he stays engaged. And, in addition to that, he likes having a little bit of danger in his life: “I want to die with

The weirdest thing about John Kerry´s weekend speech on climate-change—other than the fact that this is the same guy who in 1997 voted to forbid the U.S. from signing the Kyoto Protocol—is that it begins by quoting something Maurice Strong said at the U.N.´s 1992 Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro: "Every bit of evidence I´ve seen persuades me that we are on a course leading to tragedy." Maurice who? Mr. Strong, a former oil executive from Canada (he was Pierre Trudeau´s pick to run state-owned Petro-Canada in the mid-1970s), was for many years the U.N.´s ultimate mandarin.

Former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney on Sunday warned his party not to highlight the Monica Lewinsky scandal when attacking possible Democratic White House frontrunner Hillary Clinton, saying to keep attention instead on Clinton´s record. "I don´t think Bill Clinton is as relevant as Hillary Clinton if she decides to run for president,” Romney said on NBC´s “Meet the Press,” adding that the former first lady “has her own record and her own vision."

Freshman Senator Ted Cruz says many things that need to be said and says them well. Moreover, some of these things are what many, if not most, Americans believe wholeheartedly. Yet we need to remember that the same was true of another freshman Senator, just a relatively few years ago, who parlayed his ability to say things that resonated with the voters into two terms in the White House. Who would disagree that if you want your doctor, you should be able to keep your doctor? Who would disagree with the idea of a more transparent administration in Washington, or

The Girl Scouts of the USA has sent threatening letters to at least two small pro-life groups that have been critical of Girl Scout collaborations with Planned Parenthood and other abortion advocacy groups. Since the beginning of the Girl Scout cookie boycott, exclusively announced at Breitbart News late last month, LifeNews has extensively reported on the connection between Planned Parenthood and the Girl Scouts. LifeNews editor Steve Ertelt announced Monday that he had received a letter threatening legal action.

President Bill Clinton donated his papers from his tenure as Arkansas governor to the Central Arkansas Library System (CALS) in 2003, and they are housed at the Butler Center for Arkansas Studies in Little Rock.
