As if the country’s monstrous immigration crisis weren’t dire enough, an increasing number of illegal aliens are using fake Puerto Rican birth certificates to obtain authentic U.S. passports and driver’s licenses.
Located about 1,000 miles southeast of Florida, Puerto Rico became a U.S. territory about two decades after the Caribbean island was acquired from Spain at the end of the Spanish-American war. Puerto Ricans are American citizens at birth though they don’t have the right to vote in federal elections and the island has only one non-voting representative in Congress.
Barack Obama’s speech today and his unconstitutional laws will infuriate any law-abiding citizen who cares about the Bill of Rights. Be prepared because this is only the first salvo from the totalitarian left.
Obama just up and changed the law today and he will prosecute the people who don’t obey the law he wrote unconstitutionally. He blatantly violated the separation of powers of the Constitution. Obama won’t try to work with Congress, he won’t negotiate and he doesn’t appear to have the skill to do either, so he resorts to illegal mandates instead.
Barack Obama gave his dramatic soliloquy espousing unlawful gun laws today, justifying it with emotional anecdotes – it was reminiscent of his Guns and Bibles speech years ago.
He surrounded himself with gun victims who only serve as props for him. He cried his crocodile tears – this is a man who went out golfing twenty minutes after giving speech about a decapitated American – he can’t muster up emotion for anything unless it affects his socialist agenda.
Agema said he has asked the Republican National Committee to pass a resolution at its winter meetings later this month in Charleston, South Carolina, urging Congress to act on about 50 articles of impeachment drafted by the North American Law Center. The articles accuse Obama of criminal identity fraud, helping U.S. enemies, for example, by not enforcing immigration law and overstepping the bounds of his authority, for example, by ordering military action without congressional support.
Jihadist attacks in San Bernardino and Paris have Americans on edge. Yet part of the Obama White House’s response to the attacks has been to invite Islamist groups that routinely demonize the FBI and other law-enforcement agencies to the White House to discuss a religious discrimination. “If we’re to succeed in defeating terrorism we must enlist Muslim communities as some of our strongest allies, rather than push them away,” President Obama said in his speech following the San Bernardino attack.
But partnering with such organizations sends the wrong message to the American people, said Zuhdi Jasser, president of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy (AFID).
“I think it says a lot when the president uses those organizations that have an ACLU-type mentality. They should have a seat at the table. That’s fine,” Jasser said. “But not to include groups, which have completely different focuses about counter-radicalization, counter-Islamism creates this monolithic megaphone for demonization of our government and demonization of America that ends up radicalizing our community.”
If two weeks ago I claimed it was raining when it was not, but today it does rain, does that make my original statement a prediction, one that was “right?” No, if you’re honest about it. But maybe yes if you’re ABC News, and instead of me talking about rain, it was Hillary Clinton talking about Donald Trump in ISIS recruitment videos.
On today’s Good Morning America, co-host Dan Harris suggested Hillary Clinton “may actually have been right” about Donald Trump turning up in ISIS videos. And during the subsequent segment, reporter Mary Bruce said Hillary “predicted” Trump “would become” recruitment fodder. There’s only one hitch: Hillary hadn’t “predicted” that ISIS would use Trump or that he “would become” fodder. On December 19th, during a Dem debate, Hillary claimed that ISIS was already using Trump in recruitment videos. But no terror group used Trump in a video before today, when he turned up in a video not by ISIS but from an al Qaeda-affiliated group.
The irony is that by mentioning the use of Trump in terrorist recruitment videos, Hillary might actually have encouraged Islamic terrorist groups to do so. These groups are very media-savvy. And after Hillary’s statement, what better way to ensure massive media coverage of a recruitment video than to stick Trump in it? Thanks for the idea, Hillary!
According to a bombshell Wall Street Journalarticle by Adam Entous and Danny Yadron, published online late Monday, the National Security Agency provided the White House with intercepted Israeli communications containing details of private discussions between Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu and U.S. lawmakers and American Jewish groups on the Iran nuclear deal. If true, this could be the biggest scandal of the Obama presidency.
The Journal article explains that President Obama decided to stop NSA collection against certain foreign leaders after the backlash against Edward Snowden’s disclosure that the NSA had eavesdropped on German chancellor Angela Merkel’s cellphone and monitored communications of the heads of state of other close U.S. allies.
According to the Journal story, President Obama did not halt NSA spying against Netanyahu. This is not a surprise, given the president’s chilly relations with the Israeli leader and Israel’s aggressive spying against the United States. It’s also not a surprise that the Obama administration sought intelligence on Netanyahu’s efforts to undermine the nuclear deal. But it is stunning to learn that NSA sent the White House intelligence on private discussions with U.S. congressmen on a major policy dispute between the White House and Congress.
According to the Journal article, to avoid a paper trail that would show that they wanted the NSA to report on Netanyahu’s interactions with Congress, Obama officials decided to let the agency decide how much of this intelligence to provide and what to withhold. The article cited an unnamed U.S. official who explained, “We didn’t say, ‘Do it.’ We didn’t say, ‘Don’t do it.'”
