White House Spokesman: Amnesty for Illegals is More Important than Stopping Terrorist Attacks in America

I thought these Progressives were Smart! This is Classic Stupidity

It’s another good ol’ fashioned government showdown as the new Republican-controlled Congress takes on President-turned-Emperor Obama and his executive amnesty program.
Regardless of how one views the plights of illegal immigrants, by nearly every reputable estimation, the president does not have the authority to unilaterally make laws such as creating from scratch a law that grants amnesty to millions of illegals.
Of course, that does not stop the Democrats from defending the illegal actions. The Democrat message doesn’t seem to be that Obama was within his constitutionally-delegated authority to grant amnesty; they seem to, instead, rely on a “the ends justify the means” message touted by virtually every democratically-elected-leader-turned-dictator ever.
Still, the new Congress is out to show that they know how to play hardball and are holding back funds for the executively-created program. This also leads the Department of Homeland Security going without funding- a talking point the Democrats are using to try and paint the Republicans as out of their mind.
However, the real story here is that a president acted without Congressional approval to create a law that the majority of Americans oppose- all without having the authority to do so. So, why is the onus upon Republicans to fund this monstrosity or otherwise face the wrath of the vengeful leftstream media?
According to White House Press secretary Josh Earnest, the president is not even interested in curbing his illegal amnesty edict even a bit in order to reach a bipartisan agreement to fund the government.
On Friday, a reporter asked Earnest,
“Will the president change that executive action in any way in order to secure funding for the Department of Homeland Security?”
“No, it’s not going to happen,” Earnest replied abruptly.
At the heart of the issue is who will blink first. The current situation will deny thousands of federal employees paychecks and rather than fund these law enforcement officials to keep America safe and to ensure national security, the priority for Democrats is not losing face to Republicans and ensuring that millions of illegals are rewarded for their criminality and afforded the opportunity to compete for American jobs with Americans.
If Obama were half as interested in playing this brand of hardball with ISIS, Iran, Cuba or Russia, maybe we wouldn’t be the laughing stock on the world stage.

Feds’ Price War on Housing Puts Taxpayers at Risk

You would think these Liberals would have learned the first time; remember the collapse of the housing Market. Not all the Banks fault. This failed Liberal policy forced banks to give these subprime Mortgages to people that could not afford these homes. Now Fannie and Freddy (Government owned ) is in the news again.

Fannie and Freddie, FHA compete to offer riskier home loans to low-income buyers

Government housing agencies seeking to entice more low-income homebuyers to purchase mortgages are engaged in a price war that could leave taxpayers on the hook if another housing meltdown occurs, according to experts.
Both the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) and Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, housing giants known as government-sponsored enterprises (GSEs), have announced programs in recent weeks that reduce lending standards and mortgage costs to attract low-income buyers.
President Barack Obama touted the FHA’s plan, which lowers annual insurance premiums on government-backed mortgages, earlier this month. That program follows Fannie and Freddie’sresumption in December of low down payment mortgage loans for eligible first-time homebuyers.
The timing of the two measures is not a coincidence, some experts say. Edward Pinto, former chief credit officer of Fannie Mae and a co-director of the American Enterprise Institute’s (AEI) International Center on Housing Risk, wrote in the Wall Street Journal on Wednesday that the federal agencies also competed for homebuyers in the decades before the 2008 housing crisis.
“Fannie’s goal in 1994 and today is to take market share from the FHA, the main competitor for loans it and Freddie Mac need to meet mandates set by Congress since 1992 to increase loans to low- and moderate-income homeowners,” he said. “The weapons in this war are familiar—lower pricing and progressively looser credit as competing federal agencies fight over existing high-risk lending and seek to expand such lending.”
As the agencies reduce prices in a tit-for-tat fashion to lure homebuyers, more risky mortgage loans are injected into the housing market. Critics say the purchase of such loans by Fannie and Freddie, spurred by federal housing mandates, contributed significantly to the 2008 crisis. The GSEs required a taxpayer bailout of $188 billion to stay afloat after 2008.
Fannie and Freddie operate by buying mortgage loans from lenders, packaging them into securities, and then selling those securities to investors with backing from taxpayers. The FHA, by contrast, offers mortgage insurance on loans by certain approved lenders. In 2013, the agency drew $1.7 billion from the Treasury Department to cover losses on bad loans.
Fannie and Freddie, along with the FHA, underwrite a majority of loans in the housing market.
Mel Watt, director of the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA)—which oversees the GSEs—saidduring a congressional hearing on Tuesday that his agency would decide on the “guarantee fees” that Fannie and Freddie charge lenders by the end of March.
If the fees—which account for the risk Fannie and Freddie assume by buying the mortgage loans—are reduced, it could be another sign that the GSEs will lower prices further to compete with FHA and attract homebuyers.
Another concern about the brewing price war between Fannie and Freddie and the FHA is their lack of capital. Under a 2012 agreement with Treasury, Fannie and Freddie must hand over all of their profits to the government and cannot retain capital. The FHA will not reach its required minimum capital level of 2 percent until at least 2016. Both agencies could thus leave taxpayers exposed if their loans default, and there is no capital to absorb the losses.
“Mortgage price wars between government agencies are particularly dangerous, since access to low-cost capital and minimal capital requirements gives them the ability to continue for many years—all at great risk to the taxpayers,” Pinto said. “Government agencies also charge low-risk consumers more than necessary to cover the risk of default, using the overage to lower fees on loans to high-risk consumers.”
Homes have become less affordable since 2009, hurting middle-class homebuyers who receive smaller subsidies from the government than low-income purchasers. According to the urban planning site Demographia, the share of U.S. housing markets that are affordable has declined from 56 percent in 2009 to 36 percent last year.
AEI’s International Center on Housing Risk said in a briefing released Monday that there are not enough low-risk loans in the mortgage market to ensure “long-run market stability.”

CNN: US Intel: Taliban Man Released From Gitmo in Bergdahl Deal is Back to Militant Activity

CNN, part of Obama Propaganda put this out. I thought these Cockroaches were going to become a productive citizen and be good and be watched by the U.S.



A Few More Facebook Post

Lets see what he does or chooses with Keystone xl? His Billionaire Money donors or the American People! Reid is not there to do his dirty work.



What a Shocker; he claims distraction, when in real terms his "Raising Taxes" on the middle class did not look good!

In a desperate attempt at relevance, President Barack Obama thought he could pay for two promised years of free community college tuition by eliminating the tax exemption on middle-class 529 college-savings accounts. Although the Administration argued that the 529 accounts disproportionately benefit higher-income families, disenfranchising 11.6 million accounts was seen as just short of a declaration of war on “the family.” This afternoon Obama dumped his tax plan.

In last week’s State of the Union address, President Obama proposed what he said would be a series of changes that would supposedly help low- and middle-income households by expanding the “American-Opportunity-Tax-Credit,” which would provide as much as $2,500 per student for higher-education. But to offset the cost, the White House decided to jettison tax-free distributions for college from 529 accounts.
Total investment by American families in 529 plans has reached a record level of $227.07 billion. Total assets in 529 plans grew by $36.4 billion dollars in 2013, and are believed to have grown by a similar amount in 2014. The total number of 529 accounts increased 4.4% over the past 12 months from 11.1 million to 11.6 million.
Going after the 529 college-savings accounts also seems to have created worries among middle-class investors that an administration desperate for cash might also want to take away the tax-advantages of 401K retirement accounts.
House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) and his Republican allies were having a field day haranguing the Obama Administration’s insensitivity. In complete unity, Republicans demanded the White House dump the tax idea, “for the sake of middle-class families.”
A GOP aide said Tuesday that the House would vote next month on an alternative approach—sponsored both by Republican and Democratic lawmakers—that would expand 529 account benefits while preserving their current tax treatment. The move set up a high-stakes political test of Democratic support for President Obama’s plan.
Democrats, led by House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) pressed senior Administration officials aboard Air Force One as she flew with the President from India to Saudi Arabia, according to the New York Times.
With the media smelling blood in the water, a White House official quoted by the Wall Street Journal late Tuesday evening said the 529 proposal was “a very small component of the President’s overall plan to deliver $50 billion in education tax cuts for middle-class families….Given it has become such a distraction, we’re not going to ask Congress to pass the 529 provision.”
The Administration says it is committed to pushing for expanded tax credits for higher-education costs, as well as other breaks for lower- and middle-income households. But with the centerpiece of Obama’s State of the Union address aimed at stoking middle-class anxiety over wage and income stagnation having imploded, a lame-duck president had to limp away.

Obama Adviser Podesta Caught Green-Handed In Major Ethics Violation

Holy Crap, We have a Liberal involved with a ethics violation involving a money Payoff? Smells fishy to me!

In 2013, John Podesta was paid $87,000 by a shadowy foreign billionaire whose passion is preventing energy exploration on American land.
Just two years later, Podesta is a member of President Obama’s inner circle, and the driving force inside the White House to block 12 million acres of land in Alaska’s Artic National Wildlife Refuge from oil drilling.
The circumstances suggest Podesta may have run afoul of Obama’s highly-touted ethics pledge, which requires political appointees to disqualify themselves in matters relating to the interests of a former employer or client.
Podesta — who is preparing to leave the White House to take a top position with Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign — has largely avoided public scrutiny during his time as a White House Counselor.
But his work came into fuller view earlier this week when he emerged as one of the architects of the new White House policy that seeks to end any future drilling for oil on Alaska’s coastal plain.

Phone Company ‘Outraged’ By Fraud, Abuse In ‘Obamaphone’ Program

Your taxpayer dollars and surcharges hard at work!

DENVER (CBS4) – A nationwide cellphone company distributing phones and cellphone plans in Denver as part of a massive government program says it is “outraged by the unacceptable actions” uncovered by a CBS4 undercover investigation.
The response from Total Call Mobile comes nearly three months after an undercover CBS4 investigation revealed multiple examples of fraud and cheating in the phone distribution program.
The Lifeline program is aimed at providing free cellphone service to the poor and needy. It handed out more than 13 million free cellphone plans in the first six months of 2014. In Colorado, the program handed out more than 117,000 free cellphone plans in the first half of 2014 or about 20,000 cellphones every month.
If you own a cellphone, you pay for the free phones and their wireless plans via a monthly tax on your cellphone called the Universal Service Tax. Although the Lifeline wireless program has been around since 2005 and started under President George W. Bush, it ballooned under President Obama and the phones are often referred to as Obamaphones.
To qualify for one of the cellphone plans, you have to be low income — on food stamps, Medicaid, housing assistance or some other government program.
But multiple times a CBS4 producer and reporter found phone agents in Denver circumventing strict government rules to ensure that only the truly needy get the free phones. Vendors, like Total Call, receive massive government subsidies to hand out the phones and the accompanying monthly plans.
In one case a Total Call agent used someone else’s food stamp card to provide eligibility for a CBS4 producer. On another occasion another Total Call agent said it would be perfectly fine to use a friend’s food stamp card to establish eligibility and obtain a free phone.
In a letter to CBS4, Total Call has now responded saying, “Total Call Mobile is outraged by the unacceptable actions shown in the broadcast. The broadcast depicted both agents and applicants seeking to improperly participate in the Lifeline program. They were both engaged in fraudulent activity … to enroll in the Lifeline program among other improper actions.”

The company said based on the CBS4 report it would be providing evidence of wrongdoing to “the appropriate governmental authorities. Regarding the incorrect or improper statements by agents that were brought to our attention in your broadcast, all of the agents that were distributing for Total Call Mobile have been identified and their access to our system has been permanently blocked.”
The cellphone company said following the revelations in the CBS4 report it would implement new protocols to eliminate the fraud and abuse uncovered by CBS4. One of those new steps is a Total Call Mobile Fraud Tip Hotline, 1-800-589-6316.
The company is asking the public to let it know of any improper activity with regard to Lifeline applications submitted to Total Call.

Ten times more Americans than first estimated will lose employer-based health insurance under Obamacare: CBO

So the Media and Our Clown in Charge says Obamacare is working? Lets ask the people that will be affected by this a year from now!

The latest data on Obamacare analyzed by the Congressional Budget Office shows that 10 million Americans are likely to lose their employer-based insurance by 2021 as companies dump their workers onto the Obamacare exchanges. That's 10 times the number originally projected by the CBO. About 1 of every 16 workers will be affected.
The latest CBO report has not garnered a lot of attention, even though it contains the modestly good news that Obamacare is not costing as much as the CBO thought it would in 2010. That said, another reason the left and the administration may not be touting this news is that the report also says that after a decade of Obamacare, there will still be 31 million people without health insurance - a number that has gone up every year the CBO has issued a report.
This finding stands in sharp contrast to earlier CBO projections, which at one point suggested ObamaCare would increase the number of people getting coverage through work, at least in its early years.
The budget office has, in fact, increased the number it says will lose workplace coverage every year since 2011.
The latest CBO finding also thoroughly debunks the many promises ObamaCare backers made when selling the law — about how those with work-based coverage had nothing to worry about.
ObamaCare architect Jonathan Gruber, for example, said the law was specifically designed "to leave those who are happy with their employer-sponsored insurance alone."
Then Washington Post reporter Ezra Klein reassured readers that "for most companies ... there's little reason to expect their behavior will change."
The White House insisted that "respected independent analysts have concluded that the number of Americans who get their health insurance at work will not change in a significant way."
Obama endlessly repeated his iron-clad guarantee that those who liked their plans could keep them.
And those who suggested at the time that employers might take advantage of ObamaCare to offload their health costs onto taxpayers by dumping workers into the government exchanges were told to read those now-discredited CBO reports.
At the same time CBO was upping ObamaCare's impact on work-based insurance, it's been downgrading the impact on the uninsured.
The CBO now says ObamaCare will leave 31 million uninsured after more than a decade, up from its 23 million forecast made in 2011.
Put another way, the CBO promised that ObamaCare would cover 60% of the uninsured.
Now it says the program will cover less than half, despite spending $2 trillion to subsidize premiums and expand Medicaid.
Does anyone really believe that if Obama announced a plan to spend $2 trillion on a program that would leave 31 million uninsured and force 10 million workers off their employer-based insurance, that even Democrats would have voted for it?
There were plenty of Republicans who warned at the time that this exact scenario would play itself out over the first few years of Obamacare. Millions kicked off their health plans at work; tens of millions still uninsured; you wouldn't be able to keep your plan or doctor; and the less than a trillion dollar price tag over the next decade Obama touted before passage of the legislation was pie in the sky.
It wasn't a secret. As we know now, even architects like Mr. Gruber knew the real score and lied about the law. Anyone who believed these claims was only fooling themselves, as the unfortunate consequences of the law continue to be felt throughout the country.

 I love this. Sheriff Joe is working and looking out for the People of hic area. He is doing his job and not afraid to speak out against this "Regime" Listen to the numbers of re arrest. Its Crazy!

Wednesday on Fox News Channel’s “Your World with Neil Cavuto,” Sheriff Joe Arpaio said the media is ignoring his statistics that prove President Barack Obama’s claims of the highest deportation rate is bogus.
According to Arpaio, this is because the criminal illegal immigrants are turned over to ICE, are deported, reenter the United States, commit crimes, are returned to his jail cells, and the process restarts.
Arpaio said,  “I did a survey for a whole year. I think I talked to you about it. Nobody will publicize it. But we had 4,500 people in jail, illegal aliens charged with many crimes. A lot of felonies. Turn them over to ICE, 36 percent keep coming back. One guy 26 times. So either they’re allowing these guys to be put on the streets, or they’re deporting them and they keep coming back. And this is another sad situation where a young person was gunned down over cigarettes.”
“I’m not saying everybody here illegally are killing people, but if they’re here illegally, they should be dealt with through the criminal system, not all this civil system that they throw out at you,” he added. “Well, you know, I got all the statistics, how many times they come back, what their crimes are, can’t get anybody to listen to me, media, or whatever. Which is very strange.”


If I am correct Bruce Rauner has done a few executive orders to start his job.  His Executive orders  DID  NOT CHANGE A LAW ON THE BOOKS!  Obama's executive orders CHANGED LAWS THAT WERE ON THE BOOKS! That is not his job It is an Illegal or unconstitutional move. These republicans so far and the Ass kissing Democrats are Chickensh*t to do the right thing they were sworn in to do and elected by the people!

With former-Sen. Scott Brown nipping at her heels in the midterm election, New Hampshire Democrat Sen. Jeanne Shaheen came out against President Obama’s executive amnesty. In September, she was even one of five Democrats to vote for a motion from Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) intended to block Obama from moving ahead with the action.
Now that she’s on the other side of the election, however, Shaheen is leading Democrats in the fight to defend executive amnesty.
Shaheen, along with the top Democratic senator on the Appropriations Committee, todayintroduced a “clean” Department of Homeland Security funding bill, one that rescinds any funding restrictions on the immigration order included in a House-passed version of the bill.
Senate Democrats have also all signed a letter supporting a clean bill – one that would fund executive amnesty – and Politico reports they are likely to block the House bill from even coming up for debate with a filibuster.
As noted by Heritage Action, last year at least ten Democratic senators expressed concern about Obama’s executive order. Now they are all lining up to defend it.
Sen. Joe Donnelly (D-IN) said: “the president shouldn’t make such significant policy changes on his own.”
Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO) said: “our immigration system is broken, and I support a comprehensive plan to fix it, but executive orders aren’t the way to do it.”
Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) said: “I disagree with the President’s decision to use executive action to make changes to our immigration system.”
Sen. Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND) said: “I’m disappointed the president decided to use executive action.”
Sen. Angus King (I-ME) said he had: “constitutional concerns about where prosecutorial discretion ends and unconstitutional executive authority begins.”
Sen. Jon Tester (D-MT), the head of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, saidhe would “prefer” that Congress act rather than the president.
Sen. Al Franken (D-MN) said: “I have concerns about executive action.”
Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA) said: “A big issue like immigration, the best way to get a comprehensive solution is to take this through the legislative process.”
Sen. Tom Carper (D-DE) said: “If I were the president, what I’d say to the Congress — House, Senate, Democrat or Republican — I’m going to give you a little bit of time and in the new Congress expect you to do something.”


I am no Lawyer but I know if I go to Mexico and want to get a job as an Illegal they would probably shoot you, or keep you locked up. They are Illegals They don't have a right over an American Citizen! We have another Obama Puppet or just a liberal progressive idiot to replace Holder.



Muslim Brotherhood-Aligned Leaders Hosted at State Department

Another one where Our Leader is Meddling?

The State Department hosted a delegation of Muslim Brotherhood-aligned leaders this week for a meeting about their ongoing efforts to oppose the current government of President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi of Egypt, who rose to power following the overthrow of Mohamed Morsi, an ally of the Brotherhood, in 2013.
One member of the delegation, a Brotherhood-aligned judge in Egypt, posed for a picture while at Foggy Bottom in which he held up the Islamic group’s notorious four-finger Rabia symbol, according to his Facebook page.
That delegation member, Waleed Sharaby, is a secretary-general of the Egyptian Revolutionary Council and a spokesman for Judges for Egypt, a group reported to have close ties to the Brotherhood.
The delegation also includes Gamal Heshmat, a leading member of the Brotherhood, and Abdel Mawgoud al-Dardery, a Brotherhood member who served as a parliamentarian from Luxor.
Sharaby, the Brotherhood-aligned judge, flashed the Islamist group’s popular symbol in his picture at the State Department and wrote in a caption: “Now in the U.S. State Department. Your steadfastness impresses everyone,” according to an independent translation of the Arabic.
Another member of the delegation, Maha Azzam, confirmed during an event hosted Tuesday by the Center for the Study of Islam and Democracy (CSID)—another group accused of having close ties to the Brotherhood—that the delegation had “fruitful” talks with the State Department.
Maha Azzam confirms that ‘anti-coup’ delegation, which includes 2 top [Muslim Brothers], had ‘fruitful’ conversations at State Dept,” Egypt expert Eric Trager tweeted.
Assam also said that the department expressed openness to engagement, according to one person who attended the event.
Trager, a fellow at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy (WINEP), told the Washington Free Beacon that the State Department is interested in maintaining a dialogue with the Brotherhood due to its continued role in the Egyptian political scene.
“The State Department continues to speak with Muslim Brothers on the assumption that Egyptian politics are unpredictable, and the Brotherhood still has some support in Egypt,” he said. “But when pro-Brotherhood delegations then post photos of themselves making pro-Brotherhood gestures in front of the State Department logo, it creates an embarrassment for the State Department.”
When asked to comment on the meeting Tuesday evening, a State Department official said, “We meet with representatives from across the political spectrum in Egypt.”
The official declined to elaborate on who may have been hosted or on any details about the timing and substance of any talks.
Samuel Tadros, an Egypt expert and research fellow at the Hudson Institute who is familiar with the delegation, said that the visit is meant to rally support for the Muslim Brotherhood’s ongoing efforts against to oppose Sisi.
“I think the Muslim Brotherhood visit serves two goals,” Tadros said. “First, organizing the pro Muslim Brotherhood movement in the U.S. among the Egyptian and other Arab and Muslim communities.”
“Secondly, reaching out to administration and the policy community in D.C.,” Tadros said. “The delegation’s composition includes several non-official Muslim Brotherhood members to portray an image of a united Islamist and non-Islamist revolutionary camp against the regime.”
The delegation held several public events this week in Maryland and Virginia, according to invitations that were sent out.
Patrick Poole, a terrorism expert and national security reporter, said the powwow at the State Department could be a sign that the Obama administration still considers the Brotherhood politically viable, despite its ouster from power and a subsequent crackdown on its members by Egyptian authorities.
“What this shows is that the widespread rejection of the Muslim Brotherhood across the Middle East, particularly the largest protests in recorded human history in Egypt on June 30, 2013, that led to Morsi’s ouster, is not recognized by the State Department and the Obama administration,” Poole said.
“This is a direct insult to our Egyptian allies, who are in an existential struggle against the Muslim Brotherhood, all in the pursuit of the mythical ‘moderate Islamists’ who the D.C. foreign policy elite still believe will bring democracy to the Middle East,” Poole said.



Community Organizer Rat Barack Hussein Obama sends his campaign team to Israel to try and defeat Benjamin Netanyahu in upcoming election

 With  Valerie Jarrett in the White House born in  Shiraz, Iran does this have anything to

with Obama turning his back on  Benjamin Netanyahu? Is this why Obama does not want Congress to "Not Interfere" in negotiations? Something Stinks here. Iran getting the Bomb and Obama "talking". With Israel being our Friend and Obama spending taxpayer money with the State dept now Interfering in their election Our Leader is a Major Loser. With Netanyahu doing a darn good job defending his country with our technology I would back him 100% and tell Obama to Keep his ace out of their business!



But Obama won’t meet with Benjamin Netanyahu when he comes here to speak to the U.S. Congress because he says “its too close to Israeli elections.”

Not to worry, Obama’s influence will be as effective as it was for the Democrats in the 2014 mid-terms.
