Liberals all over the country have fallen into a deep, sullen, and tear-filled depression as their golden boy, Barack Obama, seems to have completely given up on the presidency and has resigned himself to spending the rest of his time in office on vacation or at the golf course.
President Obama has been acting much like an absentee father lately, avoiding all of his responsibilities and allowing crisis after crisis to spiral out of control.
Congress and Barack Obama just cannot keep their eyes off of Americans’ guns
. Though they are allowing and open invasion of the United States via the southern border, something they should be dealing with according to law, they are unconstitutionally focusing on more violations of the Second Amendment. This week, the new gun confiscation bill introduced in the Senate on Tuesday claims to be aimed at removing guns
from domestic abusers, but since no authority was given to the federal government to restrict or regulate arms
, it is unconstitutional on its face.
The bill, termed the Domestic Violence Gun Homicide Prevention Act of 2014, is cosponsored by Sens. Murphy, Schatz, Gillibrand, Kaine, Levin, Durbin, and Warren, all Senate Dems with a long history of supporting pro-gun control measures. The legislation would institute and fund a series of grants, administered by the Director of the Office of Community Policing Services of the Department of Justice. These grants would be distributed to states who have domestic violence gun prohibitions and enforce regulations that include the seizure of firearms in cases of domestic abuse.
The announcement of the legislation comes just a day before a scheduled appearance on Capitol Hill by a group of domestic violence survivors and gun control advocates from Michael Bloomberg’s Everytown for Gun Safety. These speakers will testify in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee on the subject of closing what they term “loopholes in federal law that allow dangerous abusers and stalkers to buy and keep guns.”
Two of the co-sponsors of the bill unveiled Tuesday, Blumenthal and Durbin, sit on the Senate Judiciary Committee.
Everytown has been vocal in recent months on the subject of gun control and domestic violence. In June, the group released a 36-page study in which they contend that some 41 states do not require domestic abusers to relinquish guns and federal law does not keep guns out of the hands of abusive dating partners or convicted stalkers. The study further states that when a gun is present in a violence situation, it increases the risk of homicide for women by 500 percent.
This week Everytown launched a series of graphic ads on cable and network stations to air in Washington, D.C., New Hampshire, Arizona and Nevada. In the 30-second spots, a woman is confronted by what is portrayed as an armed, estranged ex who breaks into her home despite calls to 911 for help. These ads, aimed directly at three Republican senators — including one on the Senate Judiciary Committee — publicly challenge the lawmakers to help expand current laws to prohibit gun possession by domestic abusers.

LUBBOCK, Texas—An illegal immigrant who was released by U.S. authorities with a Notice to Appear has been arrested for the alleged murder of a woman and kidnapping of children on U.S. soil. The alleged crimes occurred after the man was released.
The man, Pedro Alberto Monterroso-Navas, entered the U.S. illegally with children and turned himself in to U.S. Border Patrol agents. He was processed and released, as are all illegal immigrants who come as unaccompanied minors or incomplete family units from Central America. The alien is from Honduras.
The arrest was first reported by the Associated Press (AP), but Breitbart Texas has exclusively confirmed that the man was part of the Obama Administration’s catch and release policy for family groups from Central America.
A U.S. Border Patrol source who spoke with Breitbart Texas on the condition of anonymity provided Breitbart Texas with the alien registration number for the man, and the event number for the man’s apprehension. He was processed in the McAllen station of the U.S. Border Patrol. The alien’s registration number is 202027386. The event number for his apprehension is MCS14061487. The “MCS” designates the McAllen station, the “1406” designates that the man was apprehended in June of 2014. A separate Border Patrol source confirmed that the man was apprehended on June 26, 2014 with two children he claimed were his own. He told U.S. authorities he had family in Metairie, Louisiana.

After being told that Lois Lerner’s computer, along with several others, crashed and that emails from her could not be retrieved, even though there was an independent email backup company employeed by the Internal Revenue Service (fired after the fact), we come to find out that Ms. “I’ve done nothing wrong, but plead the Fifth” Lerner actually printed out some of those alleged missing emails..
According to her attorney Bill Taylor, she claimed not to have printed out and filed her emails as she is required to do, according to the Federal Records Act. Say it isn’t so! Another Obama minion has broken the law! So far that’s at least Eric Holder and Kathleen Sebelius that Lerner joins in this respect.
Chairman of the House Oversight and Governement Reform Committee Darrell Issa (R-CA) said, “The Federal Records Act requires agencies to make and preserve records of agency decisions, policies, and essential transactions, and to take steps to safeguard against the loss of agency records.”
According to the IRS website:
The Federal Records Act applies to email records just as it does to records you create using other media. Emails are records when they are: Created or received in the transaction of agency business; Appropriate for preservation as evidence of the government’s function and activities; or Valuable because of the information they contain.
If you create or receive email messages during the course of your daily work, you are responsible for ensuring that you manage them properly. The Treasury Department’s current email policy requires emails and attachments that meet the definition of a federal record be added to the organization’s files by printing them (including the essential transmission data) and filing them with related paper records. If transmission and receipt data are not printed by the email system, annotate the paper copy.
Please note that maintaining a copy of an email or its attachments within the IRS email MS Outlook application does not meet the requirements of maintaining an official record. Therefore, print and file email and its attachments if they are either permanent records or if they relate to a specific case.

No surprise this came from the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals.
PHOENIX — Calling the state policy motivated by animosity, the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals this morning ordered that “dreamers” be allowed to get Arizona driver’s licenses, at least for the time being.
In a unanimous decision, the court rejected arguments by Gov. Jan Brewer that she was entitled to issue an executive order two years ago denying licenses to those in the federal government’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. The court ordered U.S. District Court Judge David Campbell, who had initially denied an injunction on behalf of the dreamers, to direct the state Department of Transportation to provide licenses to those who are in that program.
Today’s ruling does not mean the dreamers will get to keep their licenses. That still needs to be determined after a full-blown trial.
But Judge Harry Pregerson, writing for the three-judge panel, said the evidence presented shows they are likely to ultimately succeed.
There was no immediate response from the governor.

The Obama administration has an infamous history of questionable Islamist outreach, as noted here, here and here. These outreach efforts have been engaged by the highest levels of the Department of Justice (DOJ), resulting in decisions effecting potential prosecutions of Islamist leaders and closing ranks with other Islamist leaders in the name of civil rights enforcement.
More recently, a U.S. Attorney in Tennessee suggested that anti-Muslim inflammatory Internet postings might rise to the level of violating federal civil rights statutes. This caused an uproar of concern that such biased outreach may cross a line encroaching on First Amendment protected free speech.

“Let us disappoint the men who are raising themselves upon the ruin of this Country.” — John Adams
The number of scandals involving the encroachment of the Obama Administration into – and onto – the constitutional rights of American citizens is beyond stunning. And it is without question criminal in many cases. But with an Attorney General seated who – as a practice – routinely tries to manipulate the limits of the law to affect an ideological agenda, and a federal “classification system” that keeps those elected to represent us in Congress from bringing issues of government instituted malfeasance to light, what recourse is left the American citizen?
These encroachments against the United States Constitution are the product of over one-hundred years of Progressive political advances in the area of government. Put succinctly, two of the founding principles of the Progressive Movement; two of the “givens” held in understanding by each and every Progressive, are that: a) Progressives are enlightened; intellectually superior to the masses; and, b) that through centralized government, Progressives can help the masses help themselves to a better life, regardless of whether they want it or not. Once these two facts are understood, you can begin to understand some of the declarations made by Mr. Obama and his spokespeople about the many scandals – or what We the People perceive to be scandals – surrounding the Obama Administration.
