Barack Obama, our next President

Full story: Hampton Roads Daily Press

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ...

Senators gained on Thursday what they clearly see as a crucial new ally in their quest to pass an immigration measure: Bill O'Reilly.

The Fox News host announced that, after the completion of a new Senate deal on border security, he was in favor of the bill's passage.

"It is time for the USA to pass immigration reform," he said. "For years I’ve called for a more secure southern border, you know that. And now it looks like the secure border is in reach. At least somewhat. So I hope this bill does become law."

O'Reilly and Fox News have been the subject of an intense, personal lobbying campaign by members of the so-called "Gang of Eight" who are working on the immigration bill and feel that the network's support is crucial if the GOP wants its base to accept the measure . The New Yorker's Ryan Lizza recently wrote that senators Marco Rubio, John McCain and others have talked privately to O'Reilly, Sean Hannity and Neil Cavuto to get them on side.

On Thursday, O'Reilly said that he had spoken to Rubio earlier in the day.

"Senator Rubio told me on the phone today that it would be at least 13 years—13—before people in the country illegally right now could gain full legal working status, and even longer to achieve citizenship," he said.

The Russians warned us about the Tsarnaev brothers, but this information was not taken seriously by the FBI. This, according to Valentina Matvienko, the speaker of Russia's senate.

So do you, too, think the Fort Hood massacre was workplace violence? And that jihadist has the right to represent himself in a court of law and question those he didn't kill?

Interesting--Gov Blagojevich a democrat in Illinois would not do the bidding for the far left in Chicago--he is in jail for 14 more years-he took no money-but nonetheless he was sentenced because of 'attempted to sell' Barack Hussein O'bama's senate seat--and then you have several democrats in Chicago who were part of the far left who received small or no jail time. I think you are on to something here.

Bush-era whistle-blower: Obama was NSA wiretap victim in 2004

Former National Security Agency analyst Russ Tice, a Bush-era whistle-blower, recently made startling claims that the federal government’s wiretap endeavors targeted high-ranking government officials, including military officials, lawmakers and diplomats.

One of those target wound up being elected president. In appearance on “The Boiling Frogs Show” on Wednesday, Tice made the astonishing claim that the NSA had ordered wiretaps on phones connected to then-Democratic Senate hopeful Barack Obama in 2004, weeks prior to his breakout speech at the 2004 Democratic Convention in Boston.

The rhetoric that NSA has strict requirements to listen in on American citizens' conversation and read their emails has been disproven by those who know first-hand being allowed to do this by anyone is rubber stamped if they just ask for permission.

Even Bob Beckle, a liberal, said this was true when he saw it happeneing as far back as the 1970s under the Carter administration.

The standards have become much looser since then and thousands of contractors now have access to this information.

Great game last night! Totally phenomenal!
Baseball follows the rules. NASCAR follows the rules. Golf follow the rules. Football follows the rules. They all follow the rules and are penalized if they don't. What makes basketball (NBA) so special that they are not required to follow the rules of the game? If you don't like the rule, change it. To ignore a rule lowers the standing of the game. Rules are there for a reason. But you all being libtards ignoring a rule (law) that you don't like is second nature so no one should be surprised.

Actually most people started paying attention when Hillary Clinton tried to push Hillary Care down our throats-the republicans were ushered into office. I never voted for a democrat after my vote for Bill Clinton in his first term. He was the most disgusting president in history. Young and dumb is no excuse-but I was.

Look at the patreaus affair. There is nothing we can do that the government can't find out about. And if anyone believes a politician won't use that kind of information to get his way, they must be a liberal.

And if people in high places wanted to use that information against their political enemies - this administration could continue to abuse and overreach its power.

That's the main concern everyone has now. No one trusts Obama and everyone in his administration.

- When basketball was about team and not about me, the chest thumping BS is disgraceful
- When moving screens were called
- When players accepted fouls called on them instead of whining and crying
- When the average Joe could afford to take his son to an NBA game

1) They are taxed now.
2) If the law changed from taxing these foreign profits in the year they were made instead of when they were repatriated, then more of those overseas profits would come back to the US & invested here. A incentive to build plants overseas would be eliminated.
3) The taxes used to be collected in the year they were made & guess what? US companies did not collapse as you & Flacktard claim. They flourished.
My God you right whiners don't know f*cking sh*t ( I included those two words so Galt would know it was me posting).
