PHOENIX — A federal judge pushed back Thursday against a contention by the Obama Justice Department that a tough new Arizona immigration law set to take effect next week would cause “irreparable harm” and intrude into federal immigration enforcement.
“Why can’t Arizona be as inhospitable as they wish to people who have entered or remained in the United States?” U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton asked in a pointed exchange with Deputy Solicitor General Edwin S. Kneedler. Her comment came during a rare federal court hearing in the Justice Department’s lawsuit against Arizona and Gov. Jan Brewer (R).
As support for impeaching Barak Hussein Obama grows, there is a great deal of discussion of the grounds that can be cited for impeachment. One offense that should be highlighted early on is his unceasing lying to the American people. As it relates to him as “president”, it began during his campaign, when he was out to get people to vote for him.
He had no problem contradicting himself, if he thought the particular group he was speaking to at the moment wanted to hear something different than what he had told a different group the other day. This happened with such regularity – and the “mainstream media”, more accurately called the Democrat Propaganda Ministry, never called him on these flip-flop lies – that to list them would fill a book. However, he lied about a number of fundamental policy stances that have, and/or will cause severe damage to our free, democratic republican form of government, our economy, and our national security.
THE US government secretly advised Scottish ministers it would be “far preferable” to free the Lockerbie bomber than jail him in Libya.
Correspondence obtained by The Sunday Times reveals the Obama administration considered compassionate release more palatable than locking up Abdel Baset al-Megrahi in a Libyan prison.
The intervention, which has angered US relatives of those who died in the attack, was made by Richard LeBaron, deputy head of the US embassy in London, a week before Megrahi was freed in August last year on grounds that he had terminal cancer.
The document, acquired by a well-placed US source, threatens to undermine US President Barack Obama’s claim last week that all Americans were “surprised, disappointed and angry” to learn of Megrahi’s release.
US President Barack Obama and his family are to take a holiday early August in the posh southern Spanish resort city of Marbella, Spanish newspaper El Pais and El Mundo reported Sunday on their websites.
Obama, who would be on his first holiday in Spain since becoming president, was to use the occasion to visit Spanish King Juan Carlos on the Balearic island of Mallorca, the two dailies reported, citing diplomats.
The president would stay at Marbella, a prime holiday destination favoured by the rich and famous, from August 4 to 8, according to El Mundo.
The newspaper said that originally only his wife and daughters were supposed to come.
The Spanish government could not confirm on Sunday that Obama and his family were coming.
