Charge: Obama plan to legalize millions of immigrants 'disastrous' to blacks
August 6, 2014
President Obama’s much-rumored executive order granting legal status to potentially millions of illegal immigrants will be “disastrous” to African-American job seekers and a slap in the face to others proceeding through the tedious legal immigration process, charges a member of the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights.
Peter Kirsanow, a black commissioner on the eight-member panel, warned in a letter (below) to Obama this week that giving legal status to undocumented workers will pave the way for them to take the few jobs that blacks, especially African-American men, need.
“I write to remind you of the disastrous effect of illegal immigration on the employment of all Americans, but particularly black Americans,” he wrote to Obama.
“Any grant of legal status will serve as a magnet to prospective illegal immigrants and further depress employment opportunities and wages for African Americans. Given that the labor force participation rate is at an historic low, the unemployment rate is 6.2 percent, and there has been a precipitous decline in household wealth, the timing for such a grant of legal status could not be worse,” he wrote in the letter, provided to Secrets.

Crucified by the Caliphate monsters: Iraq descends into apocalypse as Islamic State fanatics seize towns and tell terrified Yazidi 'Become Muslims by noon today... or we kill all of you'
9 August 2014
He told us that either we become Muslims or they would kill us all,’ said Falah, mayor of the village made up mainly of members of the ancient Yazidi sect.‘We offered money but they would not accept it.’
The deadline the people of Kosho have to meet is midday today. Since the residents refuse to betray their faith, it is feared an entire village of about 2,500 innocent people might be slaughtered in cold blood.

Obamacare and the public: The more they know, the less they like
August 4, 2014
Democrats have long believed Obamacare would become more popular once it was fully in place and Americans got a chance to see it up close.
So why is Obamacare less popular now than a few months ago? Because it is fully in place and Americans have had a chance to see it up close.
According to new polling by the Kaiser Family Foundation, which has closely tracked Obamacare for years, 37 percent of those surveyed have a favorable view of the Affordable Care Act, while 53 percent have an unfavorable view.
That's an eight-percentage-point jump in unfavorability over last month, and a two-point drop in favorability over the same time.
Why the shift? It's not because millions of Americans have suddenly become conservative Republicans. Kaiser found that disapproval of Obamacare has risen across the board.
Among Democrats, for example, the law's unfavorable rating jumped six points in July, while its favorable rating fell four points. A similar thing happened among independents and — it hardly seemed possible — among Republicans who already hated the law.
Rather than a shift among some identifiable group, Obamacare's rising unpopularity seems to be a product of the simple fact that, several months into its implementation, more and more people are having personal experience with the law.

Dems talk about impeachment 20 times as much as Republicans
Congressional Democrats have talked about the impeachment of President Obama 20 times more than Republicans have on the House and Senate floors.
Since the start of the 113th Congress last year, Democrats have used the word “impeach” or “impeachment” regarding Obama 86 times, according to a review of the Congressional Record by The Hill.
Utterances on the floor from Republicans about impeaching Obama, in contrast, have been relatively rare. Only three Republicans in this Congress have raised the subject on the House floor, and the words have been used a total of four times by GOP members.
Most of the talk has come from House Democrats, with Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (Texas) alone using the words 18 times in two separate speeches late last month.
In the Senate, where the GOP hopes to retake a majority this fall, not a single Republican has mentioned impeachment on the floor over the last couple of years.
The figures highlight how impeachment has been a hot topic for Democrats, and one most Republicans want to avoid.
The campaign arm for House Democrats raised $2.1 million in online donations over a single July weekend while talking up the possibility that Republicans would impeach Obama.

Obama has the most powerful job in the world -- and all the perks that go with that. Yet he’s been criticized by some for seeming disengaged and frustrated with his job. What does the public think?
The poll finds a large 41-percent minority thinks Obama doesn’t even want to be president anymore. Still, just over half of voters think he does (52 percent).
Forty-seven percent of independents, 44 percent of Republicans and 37 percent of Democrats think Obama is tired of being president.

'When people are dying, you must come back from vacation': French foreign minister seems to slam Obama for golfing while Iraq burns
13 August 2014
* Obama is on Martha's Vineyard while Iraq undergoes regime change and terrorists slaughter ethnic and religious minorities
* Calling heads of state to lobby participation in humanitarian assistance program – in between golf and fundraising
* Washington Post columnist wrote that the president 'risks fueling the impression that he is detached as the world burns'
French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius has a message about Iraq for Barack Obama: Get back to the White House and do something.
'I know it is the holiday period in our Western countries,' Fabius told a radio interviewer Tuesday in France,' but when people are dying, you must come back from vacation.'
Full-time workers in France are guaranteed a whopping five weeks of paid vacation every year, making his plea all the more urgent.
Obama is on a family and golfing holiday in a ritzy neighborhood of Martha's Vineyard but says he will come back to Washington briefly on Tuesday before returning to fun, sun, and more golf.

Obama Set to Play More Golf Than Tiger Woods
Aug. 15, 2014
Here’s some perspective on Barack Obama’s golf habit: If he keeps it up, Obama will play more games of golf as president than Tiger Woods has played during the same time.
Since Obama first took office, Woods played 269 rounds. Because the golf-pro is out with an injury, Obama is playing at a rate that will surpass the number of games Woods played by spring.“Think about that for a minute,” writes Joseph Curl at The Washington Times.
“The president of the U.S., juggling the American economy and the entire world’s problems – Iraq is in full meltdown, the Middle East is a powder keg, Russia is moving on Ukraine – has played golf nearly as much as a guy whose day job is playing golf.”

Bush defends Obama's golf games !!!!!!!!!!
Few things draw more conservative ire than news that President Obama is back on the golf course.
But Obama's Republican predecessor, George W. Bush, said presidents should play golf because they need to relax.
In an interview on the Golf Channel, Bush said Obama "ought to play golf" when he can.
"I know what it's like to be in the bubble," Bush said. "And I know the pressures of the job. And to be able to get outside and play golf with some of your pals is important for the president. It does give you an outlet."
Bush himself played golf during his early years in the White House, but stopped in 2003 in the midst of the Iraq war.
As the Associated Press reports, Obama is hardly unique when it comes to his golf game:
"Fifteen of the last 18 presidents have played golf, and two are in the World Golf Hall of Fame -- Dwight D. Eisenhower and George H.W. Bush. Eisenhower was a member at Augusta National....
