The United States government is actually suing a private American business for discriminating against Hispanic and Asian employees because they don’t speak English on the job.

Newspaper Apologizes for 2008 Obama Endorsement
The Billings Gazette apologized on Friday for its 2008 endorsement of Barack Obama for president in an editorial titled “Gazette opinion: Obama earned the low ratings.”
The Gazette said it missed George W. Bush and the “good ol’ days when we were at least winning battles in Iraq.”
It recapped several mistakes Obama has made during his presidency:
- Obama has also failed on energy policy by not approving the Keystone XL pipeline, which could be helpful to the economy.
- He has failed in Iraq; the country is now on the brink of civil war.
- The Gazette wrote that the Bowe Bergdahl exchange made the Obama administration seem incompetent.
- The VA system has been mismanaged by the Obama administration, leading to veterans dying before they could receive medical care.
- Obama has also broken his promise to become the “most transparent administration in history.” The Gazette said the president’s administration is so opaque that is has earned a reputation worse than that of Richard Nixon.
The Gazette closed its editorial by noting that these mistakes “demonstrate a disturbing trend of incompetence and failure”:
These are all signs — none of them definitive on their own, necessarily. However, when taken in completely, these demonstrate a disturbing trend of incompetence and failure. It’s not just that Americans are in a sour mood about national politics. That’s probably part of it. Instead, Obama has become another in a line of presidents long on rhetoric and hopelessly short on action.
Obama’s hope and change have left liberals and conservatives alike hoping for real change, not just more lofty rhetoric.
THAD COCHRAN CAMPAIGN MANAGER Busted in Vote Buying Scheme
Democrat Reverend Stevie Fielder says he delivered hundreds or thousands to the polls last week and was told to pay $15 to each voter.
GotNews reported, via Free Republic:
Democrat black reverend, who brought “hundreds” to the polls for promise of payment, exposes alleged massive voter fraud, vote buying operation by Cochran campaign.
A black reverend stiffed by the Cochran campaign has exposed an alleged criminal conspiracy by Cochran staffers to commit massive voter fraud ahead of Tuesday’s controversial U.S. Senate Republican runoff election in Mississippi.
Reverend Stevie Fielder, associate pastor at historic First Union Missionary Baptist Church and former official at Meridian’s redevelopment agency, says he delivered “hundreds or even thousands,” of blacks to the polls after being offered money and being assured by a Cochran campaign operative that Chris McDaniel was a racist. “They [the Cochran campaign] told me to offer blacks fifteen dollars each and to vote for Thad.”
It is illegal under several provisions of Mississippi law and federal law for campaign officials to bribe voters with cash and punishable up to five years in jail. (MS Code 97-13-1; MS Code 97-13-3 (2013) (Federal Code 18 U.S.C. 597, U.S.C. 1973i(c)) Voter fraud schemes are not unusual for Mississippi. In 1999 Mississippi’s attorney general reported massive voter fraud allegations throughout the Magnolia state. In 2011, a Mississippi NAACP leader was sent to prison for voter fraud, according to the Daily Caller.
Immigration Criminal Voted for Gun Ban
One of the chief concerns of America’s Founders in the early days of the Republic was the possibility that foreigners would usurp American political power. As Alexander Hamilton wrote in Federalist No. 68, “[the] most deadly adversaries of republican government might naturally be expected to make their approaches from more than one quarter, but chiefly from the desire in foreign powers to gain improper [ascendancy] in our councils.”
The possibility that foreigners might gain political power and subvert traditional American values is even more acute in today’s climate of mass illegal immigration.
The latest case in point is that of former New York State Assemblywoman Gabriela Rosa, a Democrat, who pled guilty last week to immigration fraud charges that could land her in federal prison for up to ten years. The New York Times reports that Rosa, a native of the Dominican Republic, paid an American $8,000 for a fake marriage so she could illegally obtain American citizenship. (Since Rosa’s American “citizenship” was based on fraud, it would presumably be accurate to call Rosa an “illegal alien.”) Rosa subsequently got herself elected to the New York State Assembly in November 2012.
Obama Continues his Attack on U.S. Energy
Family Security Matters
The delay of the Keystone XL pipeline is a perfect example of the way President Obama and his administration has engaged in, not just a war on coal, but on all forms of energy the nation has and needs. Even his State Department admits there is no reason to refuse its construction and, as turmoil affects the Middle East, there is an increased need to tap our own oil and welcome Canada’s.
The latest news, however, is that Canada has just approved the Enbridge Northern Gateway Project, a major pipeline to ship Canadian oil-to Asia.
The pure evil of the delay is compounded by the loss of the many jobs the pipeline-that will not require taxpayer funding-represents to help reduce the nation’s obscene rate of unemployment and to generate new revenue for the nation. That’s what oil, coal, and natural gas does.
