Obama to Celebrities: 'You're the Ultimate Arbiter of Which Direction This Country Goes' ^ | 6/15/12 | Ben Feller

President Barack Obama soaked in the support — and the campaign cash — of Manhattan's elite entertainers Thursday as his re-election team sought to fill its fundraising coffers.

The president and first lady Michelle Obama made a rare joint fundraising appearance when they visited the home of actors Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick. The intimate dinner banked about $2 million, with 50 people paying $40,000 each.

The dinner was the Obama campaign's latest attempt to bank on celebrities for fundraising help in countering the growing donor enthusiasm from Republicans supporting Mitt Romney's presidential bid.

Alabama shows the way; tells UN's Agenda 21 Storm troopers to get lost

Coach is Right ^ | 6/15/2012 | Kevin "Coach" Collins

Any ideas the United Nations had about taking over the State of Alabama are gone. Both Houses of Alabama’s legislature unanimously passed Senate Bill 477 (SB 477) known around Montgomery as the “Due Process for Property Rights” Act and by doing so sent a loud and clear message to anyone wishing to impose United Nations control on Alabama to back off!

While almost no Democrat media cheerleader mentioned the bill, the law will likely become the model for get tough push back efforts against the cowards on the Left who want the United Nations to do the “dirty work” of putting America under international socialist law.

Using strong and specific language SB 477 orders all state agencies to refuse to cooperate in any UN scheme to subvert the sovereignty of Alabama. It says, “The State of Alabama and all political subdivisions may not adopt or implement policy recommendations that...

Republicans Say Obama's De Facto Amnesty Move Violates Oath of Office!

Conservative Nation News ^ | June 15, 2012

(The Hill) -- Republicans are criticizing the Obama administration’s new leniency for some illegal immigrants as a politically motivated and possibly illegal effort to win over Hispanic voters.

The Republicans contend the new rules — which will prevent deportations for as many as 800,000 illegal immigrants brought to the United States as children — circumvent the law just to buy Obama support from Hispanics ahead of November's elections, in which the Hispanic vote will likely be crucial.

Rep. Lamar Smith (R-Texas), chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, said the change marks "a breach of faith with the American people."

“This huge policy shift has horrible consequences for unemployed Americans looking for jobs and violates President Obama’s oath to uphold the laws of this land," Smith said in a statement.

The Obama campaign would like to see some ID, please!

Hotair ^ | 06/15/2012 | Erika Johnsen

To gain entry into President Obama's speech in Ohio on Thursday, attendees were apparently required to present a photo identification along with their ticket. Which just so obviously, impartially, logically begs the question: Why does the Obama campaign want to disenfranchise minorities?
CLEVELAND — President Barack Obama's presidential campaign checked the identification of the supporters attending Obama's "framing" event at Cuyahoga Community College today.
The 1,500 supporters in attendance picked up tickets at campaign offices in Northeast Ohio beginning on Monday, though tickets to the event made no mention of an ID requirement. ...
"We checked every ID at the door to make sure it matched with the name on the ticket that supporters filled out," she said. "We did this for every person who came in."
Discrimination! Bigotry! Racism! After all, as DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz has so aptly reminded us, asking people for government-issued identification is going to literally drag us back to the era of Jim Crow laws. As U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder has so patiently chided us, requiring proof of identity jeopardizes the entire civil rights movement. As Rep. John Lewis (D-Georgia) so recently proclaimed, requiring an ID makes it “almost impossible for young people, for students, for our seniors, for minorities to participate, for the disabled to participate, is a sin. It’s obscene…”
Oh, what’s that? President Obama’s security requires an ID-check to deter the crazies from coming out, which is completely just and legitimate and in no way speaks to any innate racism, but protecting the ballot box from the many proven attempts at fraud and abuse is somehow completely different?

America's Foot

Lisa Jackson Blames Cheap Natural Gas for EPA’s Job-Killing Policies!

ATR ^ | 2012-06-14 | Lisa Jackson

In a recent interview with The Guardian, EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson, stated that it is not her policies that are driving coal-fired power plants out of business, but rather organic changes in the American electricity market. Scapegoating natural gas, Jackson claims that low natural-gas prices and booming gas production are depressing coal consumption. But what Jackson fails to mention is that explicitly due to the EPA’s stringent regulations that some coal production is now non-econommical. The price coal-fired power plants would have to pay to comply with new, burdensome regulations is so expensive, that many coal mines are forced to close their doors.

Jackson is obviously out of touch with what Americans want from their energy. Coal is one of the most commonly used forms of energy and the cost of switching from coal to an alternative is one that many Americans are not willing to pay. Additionally, the administrator does not realize, or ignores, hundreds of thousands of jobs her regulations kill. Analyzing the EPA’s impact on American employers, ALEC released the study Economy Derailed: State-by-State Impacts of the EPA Regulatory Train Wreck.

This report found that the Utility MACT Rule sets standards so strict that even plants that have the best available technology cannot meet them. This reinforces the idea that no new coal plants are likely to be built. The EPA’s estimate of annual cost is approximately $11 billion, and its estimate of annual health benefits from the reduction in mercury is only $6 million. Electricity rates could increase 10.35 percent on average due to just five EPA regulations. Estimates show that these regulations will lead to an increase of 50 percent for gasoline and residential electricity prices and 600 percent for electric utility coal prices. Why pay all of this money for little to no environmental benefit. Based on air quality restrictions alone, the EPA has already helped shut down several coal plants, resulting in the loss of 27,000 jobs. Over 100 power plants across the country could be shut down due to upcoming EPA regulations. Additionally, the new rules are expected to jeopardize 7.3 million jobs by 2020. Clearly all that Ms. Jackson cares about is protecting the environment through ineffective policies, even if it means jeopardizing American jobs and putting a larger dent in their wallets. Well on her way to regulate coal-fired power plants out of existence, Lisa Jackson has effectively mandated that new power generation come from natural-gas power plants. While natural gas may be at historic lows today, prices will inevitably rise as natural gas consumption fills the void left by decreased coal production. This is no way to run electricity markets.
Time and time again has showed that top-down, heavy handed regulations are a terribly inefficient means of setting a national energy policy. With billions of dollars at stake and millions of jobs, our entrepreneurs, market analysts, and producers are most qualified to determine which type of energy Americans’ should use. Senator Inhofe makes this point beautifully in a letter responding to Lisa Jackson’s initial statement:
“Implying that the 'problem' for the coal industry is 'entirely' related to market economics and had nothing to do with the anticipated implementation of final and pending [EPA] rules dealing with coal-fired electricity…By its nature, the market is flexible and pragmatic; government mandates are inflexible and force uneconomic decisions on unrealistic timeframes.”

Obama Amnesty Plan: Catch, Release, Vote

Rush ^ | June 15, 2012 | Rush Limbaugh


RUSH: I have a name for this new Obama immigration policy. In case you haven't heard, folks, very quickly: The regime today told the border agents: "If you catch young illegals, let 'em go and grant 'em work permits." No more deportation of illegal immigrants. They are to be given work permits and they can stay in the country. So what this is is "Catch, Release, Vote."

JOHNNY DONOVAN: And now, from sunny south Florida, it's Open Line Friday!

RUSH: That is exactly what this is: Catch, Release, Vote.


You know what surprises me about this? He's using up his political ammo pretty early here. Now, I know he's gonna go talk to La Raza or some Latino group next week, but I'm telling you what. If you had any doubt that people are paying attention, forget it. They obviously are. The president is in full panic mode. He's not keeping his powder dry until the fall. He's not. Why? Because people are paying attention, and we don't like what we are seeing or what we are getting from Obama.

First the churches, then women, then Bain Capital, then gays, and now this. They're just throwing everything up against the wall, hoping something's gonna stick out there. He's getting killed in the media over this speech yesterday. (We've got the audio sound bites.) I mean, he's being literally reamed over the speech. And I'll tell you what's coming next. Here we go. We just went through the brief overview. First, War on Churches. Second, create (as part of it) a phony Republican War on Women. And then go after Mitt Romney and Bain Capital. Then come out for gay marriage.

And now: Don't deport the young illegals; give 'em work permits.

What's that gonna do to the unemployment number? Are we gonna count 'em looking for work or not? If we don't, the number won't drop. If we do, the number will go up. What's it gonna do for those of you trying to get work to learn that 800,000 new illegals are in the job market who will work cheaper than you do? And what's next is home mortgages and student loans. Those are the next two things that are gonna fall. They'll throw it all up against the wall. You watch.

Audio sound bites. I warned everybody of this. Let's go back to July 30th, two years ago, almost. Two years ago on this program, this is what said I...

RUSH ARCHIVE: [T]he issue here is the dictatorial nature of this regime and Obama's willingness to do anything to advance his agenda. They've been caught. They are looking at ways to grant amnesty en masse without legislation if they can't get it done, and they've been caught, memo's been seen and now they say, "Oh, no, no, no! We would never do that. We would never." They're looking at it ... and if they could find a way to do it, if they can find a way to do it, who knows? With this bunch you just don't know. You have to assume, based on everything else we've seen 'em do, that they would do it.

RUSH: We were talking there about a Washington Times story that reported on a memo that said the regime was looking at ways to do what they did today: Grant amnesty to young illegals. And I warned everybody back on July 30th of 2010 that they would do it if they could figure out a way. And the way they figured out is, "Well, it's what Rubio wants to do!" They're just saying, "Hey, this is Marco Rubio's plan. It's bipartisan. It's the DREAM Act." Yeah, except the DREAM Act got defeated. So Congress doesn't matter.

This is what happens, folks, when you have statist, dictatorial types who are in full panic mode. Who needs Congress? I think even The Forehead once said that back when Clinton was president. Clinton did stuff like this now and then. Nothing this drastic, but he did. And The Forehead said, "This is really cool! Sign the paper, law of the land," or something like that. And I'm just telling you, it's Catch, Release, Vote. Use that, folks. That is the name of the program. And, as I say, they'll forgive student loans at some point if they have to in this campaign.

And they might even propose forgiving everybody's underwater mortgage. If they can do this and go against the will of Congress, they can pretty much do whatever they want to do. Drudge has a headline up in big, red letters. Let me check if it's still up. I don't have the Drudge page up right now. Yep. "Who Needs Congress? Obama to Grant Immunity to Young Illegals." He links to a piece from That headline says, "Obama Makes Election-Year Change in Deportation Policy."

And that story begins by saying, "President Obama will sign an executive order Friday to significantly alter US immigration policy to reduce deportations of illegal immigrants who came to the country at a young age." According to the AP, "Obama's executive order could allow as many as 800,000 immigrants who came here illegally, not only to remain in the country without fear of being deported, but to work legally." So all those articles that we've been seeing about Obama being in trouble with the Hispanic vote must be showing up in the White House polls as well.

Now, this is pure desperation. But in addition to this being pure desperation, this is what he wants to do and has wanted to do all along anyway. The timing is what's desperate, not that he's doing it. And what he's counting on in every one of these proposals is the fact that his voters, basically life's takers... I'm just gonna say it. He thinks that his voters, the takers, outnumber the Catholics. And the people who don't like the whole notion of same-sex marriage. And who are opposed to ever-expanding entitlement programs. And now this.

He thinks that the black vote and the Hispanic vote and the feminist vote and all these other constituency groups are gonna add up to an electoral coalition over the rest of the country -- which I'll call, for the purposes of this discussion, "the producers." That's what he's counting on. We know that he's written off white working-class families. They've admitted that they've written that group off. They've written off the Catholics. I don't know. How much more brazen does this guy have to be. Does this help to put in context, "I hope he fails"?

Does this? You know, that was so needlessly controversial back on January 16th of 2009, when I said, "I hope he fails." The controversy attaching to that was so unnecessary. Bobby Jindal has an op-ed piece. I don't have it in front of me. It's in the stack. I don't know where it ran. But he was in Wisconsin. And Bobby Jindal starts out by saying, "I saw it. I was a witness at the scene of the crime." His observation, after being in Wisconsin for a while to help Scott Walker, was that the Democrat Party has been taken over by the radical left.

Now, you know that I love Bobby Jindal. And you know that I once suggested Bobby Jindal as a legitimate heir of Ronaldus Magnus. My contention is: We all should have known this back in 2007 when Pelosi and Hoyer and Barney Frank and the rest of the crowd took over Congress. It's been obvious that the Democrat Party has been taken over by the radical left for five years. And it was building before that. Now, I'm happy when anybody finally sees it and comes to the conclusion, but, folks...

And I not patting myself on the back. Please don't misunderstand me. I'm frustrated. All of this, everything Obama has done in 3-1/2 years was totally predictable. Based on his ideology. Based on who he is. Now, as I say, I'm happy people finally figured it out. But it would have been a lot better if people would have admitted it to themselves 3-1/2 years ago instead of waiting around trying to be bipartisan, trying to be open-minded, trying to be fair and all that. This has been serious from the get-go. This has been drastically serious from day one.

And now we see the manifestation of all this.

It's just... Well, as I say: I'm glad when people come to the obvious conclusion whenever they do. It's just frustrating. It's been out there for everybody to see that this is where we were headed. And this is where we have been headed and this is who the guy is. (interruption) Do I think it will work? Snerdley wants to know if I think it'll work. You mean help his reelection effort? I think they're throwing things up against the wall. I think they're in sheer, utter panic. I think they're spending all their political capital.

Obama the other day said (impression), "Nobody's paying attention. People don't pay attention 'til the conventions, until you get into the fall." Everybody's paying attention, and this move of his damn-well proves it. He wants everybody to know it. Folks, yeah, call me naive, and call me old-fashioned. I don't think it's gonna work. I don't think we're outnumbered yet. And a lot of people (my friends, even) disagree with me profoundly about that. It's the same coalitions they've always had. (interruption)

They've always had the Hispanics. They've always had the blacks. The reason he's doing that is 'cause he's losing 'em. It's panic time. (interruption) What do you mean? You think this is gonna add more? Not unless these people are allowed to vote, and don't discount it. Catch, Release, Vote. I know. It's my own term. But I told you, I'm surrounded by negativism, and I fight it. I can't tell you the number of people in my circle who think it's all over, and I don't. I don't.

It would be really great for ratings if I did think it was over. You know, people that sell subscriptions for things like Wall Street newsletters will tell you: A crisis story, the end of the world, will ramp up subscriptions. Keep that in mind next time you see some Wall Street analyst touting the end of the world. It's a technique. It's human nature. It works. By the same token, I can say, "Folks, I tell you, it's over. I don't know if we'll survive," and it might draw even more audience. But I don't think it. I think they're flailing. (chuckling)

And for some reason, last night I remembered David Brooks. David Brooks is one of the "smart people," one of the genuinely true smart people, one of the movers and shakers inside the Beltway. David Brooks. "I remember distinctly an image of... We were sitting on his couches, and I was looking at his pant leg and his perfectly creased pant," Brooks says, "and I’m thinking, a) he’s going to be president and b) he’ll be a very good president." That might be (chuckles) the best argument ever advanced to illustrate utter vapidness on, supposedly, our side.

That was a serious comment offered by the conservative columnist of the New York Times. That was a serious comment. It had weight. And it turns out that it may have been the best argument for supporting the guy! Forget the fact that he was a community organizer. Forget that he was a member of the socialist New Party. Forget that he was closer than close with a domestic terrorist or two; and that his pastor was a bigoted, racist, anti-American, anti-Semite. Forget all that. Those were certainly tempting reasons to turn the US executive branch over to a Marxist, right?

No, we couldn't do that.

His pants are perfectly creased! This is a man we can count on. David Brooks actually said it. I was thinking about it last night. Why wasn't that controversial or why wasn't that laughed out of the room? The crease in a young radical's pants. I looked up some more David Brooks after Obama's speech yesterday. I don't know why. I guess I just like reading what passes for "smart" inside the Beltway. And David Brooks in the New York Times on May 15th of this year wrote this: "Normally, presidents look weak during periods of economic stagnation, overwhelmed by events.

"But Obama has displayed a kind of ESPN masculinity: postfeminist in his values, but also thoroughly traditional in style -- hypercompetitive, restrained, not given to self-doubt, rarely self-indulgent. Administrations are undone by scandal and moments when they look pathetic, but this administration, guarded in all things, has rarely had those moments." I can't... This is what passes for smart? We're in the midst of utter incompetence combined with dastardly motives...


RUSH: Nancy Pelosi just more or less admitted that she likes this whole thing, and that it's not kosher. She just admitted that Obama is doing this to bypass Congress. She just tweeted, "Strongly support President's decision to stop deporting DREAM Act kids. Democratic-led House passed DREAM in 2010. GOP still obstructing." So because the Republicans who run the place are "obstructing" and didn't pass the DREAM Act, she's happy that Obama bypassed Congress. Shameless. They don't care. It's who they are. (interruption)

No, no, no, no. I am not gonna get sidetracked. When we come back from the break at the bottom of the hour, we're gonna go straight to Obama's speech, straight to the economy, straight to the panic in the media about it. Folks, I'm not -- I am never -- thrown off kilter, off course. Trickinology doesn't work on El Rushbo. And I'm telling you, they're in full panic mode. They're using up capital. This is the kind of stuff you wait 'til the fall to do.

I don't care that he's got a meeting with Hispanic leaders next week. Here, this Obama back in September 2011 at the White House. He had an open-questions roundtable. He got questions from people. "Why aren't you doing stuff for us? Why aren't you doing illegal immigration? Why aren't you making it legal? Why aren't you doing all this stuff?" Here's what he said...

OBAMA: This notion I can somehow just change the laws unilaterally is just not true. We -- we are doing everything we can administratively, but fact of the matter is there are laws on the books that I have to enforce. And I think there's been, uhhh, ehhh, great disservice done to the cause of getting the DREAM Act passed and getting comprehensive immigration passed by perpetrating the notion that somehow, by myself, I can go and do these things. It's just not true.

RUSH: Well, he did. What is he talking about? That's last year. He did. He said he just can't do this stuff by himself. He can't do amnesty by himself. He just can't.

Well, it's amazing what can happen in an election year!

He just did it.

Obama interrupted by conservative reporter!

Obama, announcing a change of policy that would allow the children of illegal immigrants to avoid deportation if they meet certain criteria, was interrupted mid-speech by Munro.
"Why’d you favor foreigners over Americans?” Munro shouted.
“Excuse me, sir, but it’s not time for questions," Obama responded.
“Are you going to take questions?” Munro asked.
“Not while I’m speaking.” Obama said.
While it's not unusual for Obama to be interrupted by occasional hecklers at big public events, the fact that a reporter brought Obama's speech to complete halt startled members of the White House press corp.
Obama, who generally ignores shouted questions from reporters at the end of press events, later addressed Munro's question after finishing his remarks uninterrupted.
“In answer to your question, sir — and the next time I’d prefer you’d let me finish my statement before you ask that question — is this is the right thing to do for the American people," Obama told Munro.
Mobbed by reporters after the event, Munro was asked if he would give his name.
“Yeah, but you’ll misspell it,“ he said.
Munro, according to his Twitter bio, has worked as a reporter for Defense News, Washington Technology and the National Journal.
"As a general matter, reporters are there to ask [questions]," Carlson told The New York Times's Brian Stelter. Carlson did not immediately respond to a question from POLITICO. The Daily Caller's account later tweeted that the organization was 'proud' of Munro.
UPDATE: In a statement, Munro said he misjudged when Obama was ending his speech.
"I timed the question believing the president was closing his remarks, because naturally I have no intention of interrupting the President of the United States," Munro said in a statement posted on the Caller's website. "I know he rarely takes questions before walking away from the podium. When I asked the question as he finished his speech, he turned his back on the many reporters, and walked away while I and at least one other reporter asked questions," he said.

‘When our justice system is in question, everything is in question’

The Daily Caller ^ | 06/14/2012 | Matthew Boyle

South Carolina Republican Sen. Jim DeMint doubled down on his call for Attorney General Eric Holder’s resignation over Operation Fast and Furious on Thursday, saying he thinks it’s long past time for Holder to leave office.

“I just think when our justice system is in question, everything is in question,” DeMint said in an interview on Washington, D.C. radio station WMAL.

“I came out a few months ago asking for Holder’s resignation,” DeMint said, ”because as this whole picture comes together, if we connect all the dots of the things he’s doing and not doing — he’s not defending some of the laws that we have in place such as the Defense of Marriage [Act], he’s suing states that are trying to fix their voter systems so that there’s less fraud, or states that are trying to defend themselves against waves of illegals coming into their states.”
DeMint went on to lay out just how deadly Fast and Furious really was, and how he thinks Holder hasn’t been forthright with Congress.
“And in this Fast and Furious thing, we talk about the one border guard, [Brian Terry,] who was killed with these guns, but it’s likely hundreds of Mexicans have been killed in the drug wars using these guns,” DeMint said. “He has just been less than forthcoming — let’s put it that way — on the things that have been asked for.”
When asked how he thinks this plays out from here, DeMint said he thinks the House will vote to hold Holder in contempt of Congress, “but that’s not necessarily going to force him to resign.”
“But, the solution to a lot of these problems is in November when we elect, hopefully, a President Romney and a new majority in the Senate that will turn this country away from the fiscal cliff and get us back in the right direction as far as jobs and the economy,” DeMint added.
DeMint is one five U.S. senators who have demanded Holder’s resignation over the Fast and Furious scandal. Sens. Orrin Hatch of Utah, John Cornyn of Texas, James Inhofe of Oklahoma and Johnny Isakson of Georgia have also called for Holder to resign. Two sitting governors, 129 House members and presumptive GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney join them in pushing for Holder’s ouster.

Obama holding 'Queer Pride Month' reception at White House ^ | 06/15/2012 | Associated Press

President Barack Obama will host a reception at the White House to observe Gay Pride Month on Friday.

In a proclamation earlier this month, the first queer president stressed that his administration has worked to “level the playing field for lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender people.”

Obama’s recent declaration of support for gay marriage was celebrated as a key endorsement among gay rights groups.

After the reception, the first family leaves for Chicago, where they will spend the night.

Obama undermines U.S. Citizens by giving Illegal Aliens free job pass!

Examiner ^ | June 15, 2012 | Kevin Fobbs

As President Ronald Reagan said in speaking about a former failed one term president, Jimmy Carter, “There you go again.” This time, Reagan’s words apply to this current president who visited the state of Ohio to explain away his failed attempt to stem epidemic joblessness. Then, the very next day he gave a free job pass to nearly one million illegal aliens.

This administration will be handing out work permits to hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens while American workers and their families strive daily to keep their lives and their homes above water. This President’s spokesperson-in-chief apologist on illegal immigration, Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano reportedly said, “The change is needed to ensure enforcement resources are not expended on “low-priority cases”

So American workers in Ohio, and American workers in Texas, and American workers in every other state in the union have to be sacrificed because she and President Obama do not want to do the job they have sworn to do, which is to defend and protect the American people. The American people are a lower priority, because this president does not appear to want to grow jobs in his failing economy as much as he wants to grow votes in the Latino community, by any means possible.
President Obama, just how many ways can you keep skirting the thin line of the American Constitution by insulting the intelligence and

... you have the "cowardly lion syndrome"!

Rep. Steve King to sue Obama administration over new immigration policy!

The Daily Caller ^ | 6/15/12 | Matthew Boyle

Iowa Republican Rep. Steve King said Friday that he plans to sue the Obama administration to halt implementation of its newly announced selective illegal immigration law enforcement policy.

He told Mike Huckabee on the former Arkansas governor’s radio program Friday that he successfully sued his own state’s governor — and won — over a similar separation-of-powers issue.

“I will tell you that — I’m not without experience on this — I’m prepared to bring a suit and seek a court order to stop implementation of this policy,” King said
