Signs the Progressive 'we need to install more undocumented workers into the US economy' economy is on fire!

'In July 2014, there were 92,001,000 Americans, 16 and over, who were classified as “not in the labor force,” meaning they not only did not have a job, but they didn’t actively seek one in the last four weeks.'

On Wednesday, House Republicans sued President Obama for acting on his own without approval from Congress. On Thursday, House Republicans told President Obama he should act on his own to fix the border crisis.

The messaging whiplash resulted from Speaker John Boehner's failure – so far – to pass a Republican spending bill that would provide $659 million to help stem the child migrant crisis on the U.S.-Mexico border.

In a statement following the decision to abruptly scrap a vote on the measure, Boehner and his fellow GOP leaders tried to put the onus back on Obama, saying the president had the power to act unilaterally, "without the need for congressional action," to respond to the crisis.

There are numerous steps the president can and should be taking right now, without the need for congressional action, to secure our borders and ensure these children are returned swiftly and safely to their countries."

Yet that was a polar opposite message from the one Republicans delivered a day earlier, when they voted to authorize a lawsuit against Obama for "bypass[ing] the legislative process to create his own laws by executive fiat," according to an accompanying committee report.

It was a contradiction not lost on Democrats, who reacted with their usual schadenfreude to the latest collapse of House GOP legislation.

“Senator Reid agrees with House Republican leaders’ statement that President Obama has the authority to take steps on immigration reform on his own," said Adam Jentleson, a spokesman for a clearly gloating Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.

He's glad Republicans have come around and hopes this means they’ll drop their frivolous lawsuit against the President instead of continuing to waste the American people’s time and money.”

House Democrats mocked Republicans over the confusion at a hearing late Thursday. "I wonder if after today the president might want to sue the House of Representatives for malpractice," Rep. Louise Slaughter (D-N.Y.) mused.

And Rep. Jim McGovern (D-Mass.) asked what would happen if Obama actually listened to the Republican plea. "If we get the president to take executive action, are we going to sue him again a second time?" he asked.

House Fails To Pass Immigration Bill, Asks Obama To Act Alone

ronically, Speaker Boehner — who, one day earlier, advanced his plan to sue President Obama for allegedly exceeding his authority with executive orders — urged President Obama to act alone on securing the border. In a statement, Boehner and fellow House leaders Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), Steve Scalise (R-LA), and Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA), said:

This situation shows the intense concern within our conference – and among the American people – about the need to ensure the security of our borders and the president’s refusal to faithfully execute our laws. There are numerous steps the president can and should be taking right now, without the need for congressional action, to secure our borders and ensure these children are returned swiftly and safely to their countries.

Obama abuse of executive actions are so extreme that they violate the Constitution.

Professor Jonathan Turley of George Washington University – a well-known liberal on some issues – said this:

“President Obama is the president Richard Nixon always wanted to be. If you look at the articles of [Nixon's] impeachment, every one of those powers Obama is exercising, and yet there’s really not a pushback.”

That's because the media's job now is to protect their fellow ideologue whom they put into power.

Surely, you must see the danger in this - whether you want to admit it or not.

Good - Netanyahu should destroy everything and anything Hamas builds.

"You won't build that" would be an applicable warning while the tunnel network is being "decommissioned". Destroy It.

If you are typing, you're hating - Jews, Christians, Israel while loving Palestinian terrorists, Muslim terrorists, The UN ... And no one believes anything "reported" by you because of your allegiances to the aforementioned. And your last statement, my that's rich - YOU only listen to ONE side - The Muslim/Palestinian terrorists'.
