Obama's scandal updates: Russia, IRS, Immigration, VA and more

Obama moves deadline for Iran nuke deal past midterm elections  [I wonder what else he will move til after the election?  He seems to know that his preferred agenda will result in fewer Democrats being elected this November.  He is truly shameless.]   http://www.redstate.com/2014/ 07/20/obama-moves-deadline- iran-nuke-deal-past-midterm- elections/

Defiant Putin warns the West not to use MH17 tragedy for 'selfish political ends', as Ukraine accuses Russia of spiriting away shrapnel-hit bodies to avoid implicating rebels

In between fund-raising trips, the American President walked to the podium Monday and promised there would be consequences if the Russian president continued to make vicious mischief in the wake of a horrific mass murder that he almost surely aided and abetted.
He scolded the Russian-backed, Russian-trained and Russian-armed separatists, who have been busy “removing bodies from the crash site, oftentimes without the care that we would normally expect from a tragedy like this,” adding:  [Are you laughing out load as I am?  He calls this a tragedy, as if no one CAUSED it to happen, and then expects the thug terrorists who did this to actually use CARE in handling the aftermath!  You just can't make this stuff up!]
“This is the kind of behavior that has no place in the community of nations.” And he warned that, “If Russia continues to violate Ukraine’s sovereignty . . . the costs for Russia’s behavior will only continue to increase.”
The Russian president must have chuckled. Or rolled his eyes. The American President has made such pronouncements too many times before.  Read more: http://www.nydailynews.com/opinion/wages-weakness-article-1.1875079#ixzz38CVWX0fH

LUIS GUTIERREZ TO LA RAZA: GET AMNESTY TO 'PUNISH' AMERICANS AGAINST ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION  

Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) believes Hispanics should get amnesty and citizenship to punish Americans who are against illegal immigration. 

After he told the La Raza conference in Los Angeles that President Barack Obama gave the Latino community a "down payment" with his temporary amnesty program that halted the deportations "of our people," Gutierrez urged Hispanics to seek retribution at the ballot box.

"We need to raise our voices, make ourselves citizens, sign up to vote and punish those who speak ill and criminalize children who come to our border," Gutierrez reportedly said in Spanish this weekend.  [I guess no longer must our elected Representatives actually follow our laws.]  http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2014/07/21/Luis-Gutierrez-to-La-Raza-Get-Amnesty-to-Punish-Americans-Against-Illegal-Immigration

What Emergency? CBO Says Just $25 Million of Obama’s $3.7 Billion Border Bill Would Be Spent This Summer

Sessions said some reports say Obama could create work permits for up to six million illegal residents, and said Congress should take a stand and refuse to allow any funding for this activity.  
Senate GOP staffers have noted in recent weeks that while the flood of just 60,000 children has led to billions in possible additional costs, the Senate-passed immigration bill would create millions of new green card opportunities for non-U.S. citizens — about 30 million over the next decade. Sessions noted that the Senate bill could allow almost every Central American family to enter the U.S. legally.
“President Obama’s illegal work permits add to the already-huge flow of lawful work permits issued by the federal government,” Sessions said.

Worse than Richard Nixon. An unprecedented abuse of powers. The most un-American president in the nation’s history.
Nat Hentoff does not think much of President Obama.
And now, the famous journalist says it is time to begin looking into impeachment.
Hentoff sees the biggest problem as Obama’s penchant to rule by executive order when he can’t convince Congress to do things his way.
“Apparently he doesn’t give one damn about the separation of powers,” Hentoff told WND. “Never before in our history has a president done these things.”
Recognized as one of the foremost authorities on the Bill of Rights and the Supreme Court, Hentoff was a columnist and staff writer with The Village Voice for 51 years, from 1957 until 2008, when his columns began appearing in WND.

When closely examined, however, the initiatives are embedded with plans for major fundamental changes.  Well-known recent examples include the Common Core, the Affordable Care Act, and Agenda 21.
One such initiative with the hidden potential for sweeping transformation is the "internationalization" of higher education.  It is a diffuse movement advanced by numerous groups and individuals throughout academia, from independent centers to professional associations to college faculty and administrators.  Despite an innocent façade, its declared intention provides cover for a highly aggressive campaign of multiculturalism, "global citizenship," redistributive economics, and anti-Western attitudes.

More programs in our public schools

Unions oppose bipartisan effort to keep criminals out of public schools

– Federal lawmakers want to prevent schools from employing convicted sex offenders, kidnappers, murderers, pornographers, spouse beaters and rapists.
Public schools would be barred from employing teachers and other workers convicted of sexual offenses against children or other violent crimes under a bill the House approved Tuesday. 
The bill has run into objections from major teachers' unions like the National Education Association and the American Federation of Teachers. In letters to lawmakers, their criticisms included concerns that the measure might jeopardize workers' protections under union contracts.
In addition, the NEA wrote that criminal background checks "often have a huge, racially disparate impact" — a reference to critics' complaints that minorities make up a disproportionately high proportion of people convicted of crimes. http://www.newstribune.com/news/2013/oct/23/house-bill-makes-schools-check-sex-offenders/

Attention, parents: Common Core opt-out form now available 

Courtesy of Truth in American Education, you can now exercise your parental rights to protect your children from the nationalized Common Core racket. Download, print, Facebook, tweet, and share the opt-out form. The revolt is growing. Make your voice and your choice heard.

As the American Principles Project, a conservative education think tank, reported last year, Common Core’s technological project is “merely one part of a much broader plan by the federal government to track individuals from birth through their participation in the workforce.” The 2009 porkulus package included a “State Fiscal Stabilization Fund” to bribe states into constructing “longitudinal data systems (LDS) to collect data on public-school students.”
These systems will aggregate massive amounts of personal data — health-care histories, income information, religious affiliations, voting status and even blood types and homework completion. The data will be available to a wide variety of public agencies. And despite federal student-privacy protections guaranteed by the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act, the Obama administration is paving the way for private entities to buy their way into the data boondoggle. Even more alarming, the U.S. Department of Education is encouraging a radical push from aggregate-level data-gathering to invasive individual student-level data collection. http://michellemalkin.com/2013/03/11/attention-parents-common-core-opt-out-form-now-available/

Pat Jones, principal of Alliance High School in Alliance, Nebraska, took it upon himself to cancel the daily recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance in his school citing the partial government shutdown begun by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid's refusal to consider a single GOP proposal to keep the government funded.

AND THEY WONDER WHY IT IS CALLED “OBAMACORE”???

Proponents of Common Core are outraged that opponents sometimes brand the education reform initiative as “Obamacore“. Really? Just because it is already being used a a propaganda tool to promote the President?
Recently, at least one Tennessee school had students complete an assignment as part of the CCSS (Common Core State Standards) approved lesson plans. The first part of the assignment was for students to read President Barack Obama’s 2009 Inauguration Address. Then they had to answer the “Big Question.” And what WAS the “Big Question”?? “How will President Obama make our country more secure. What role does he see our country playing in the world.”

Epping preschool rejects candy corn mom packed into daughter's lunch

"She said, 'My teacher told me I couldn't have any candy,'" Kelly said.

When she asked about the candy issue while dropping Sarah off at school the next day, Kelly said another teacher told her that the school's policy is no candy at school.
Kelly said she never saw such a policy when the school year started, and neither did her fiancé, Epping School Board Chairman David Mylott.

"If I put food in her lunch, she should be able to eat it. If I want to give my daughter a treat because she did a good job, she should be allowed to have it," Kelly said. http://www.unionleader.com/article/20131017/NEWS04/131019353

All the employees of school districts on a witch hunt to expel and otherwise permanently punish young boys for shooting toy guns or forming their fists into the shape of a gun need to read Back to Normal.
The purpose of psychologist Enrico Gnaulati’s 2013 book is to argue how ordinary childhood behavior is often misdiagnosed as ADD, ADHD, depression and autism — frequently with life-long, disturbing consequences. But along the way he raises the taboo question of whether we “label boys as mentally unstable, behaviorally unmanageable, academically underachieving, in need of special-education services, or displaying behavior warranting school suspension just because their behavior deviates noticeably from that of the average girl?”
He adds, “In a sense, girl behavior has become the standard by which we judge all kids.”
Boys who play in the way noted above are not on a path to mass murder, contrary to what zero tolerance school policies suggest. http://spectator.org/archives/2013/10/18/boyhood-is-not-a-mental-illnes

Muskegon, MI: Fourth graders learn to own their ‘white privilege’ – thanks to Common Core-aligned lesson
-----------------------------

Sixth-grade children in a history class in the Bryant School District in Arkansas (whose website brags that the district "has embraced" Common Core standards) were assigned a project to update the U.S. Bill of Rights because it is "outdated." They were instructed to "prioritize, revise, omit two and add two amendments."
The written assignment is full of lies, such as "the government of the United States is currently revisiting the Bill of Rights"; that "They (presumably the government) have determined that it is outdated and may not remain in its current form any longer;" and that our Constitution can be changed by a "National Revised Bill of Rights Task Force (NRBR)" (to which students could be appointed).
Students were presented with the "lifeboat situation": too many people are in the sinking lifeboat and the students were ordered to choose whose lives are not worth saving and should be thrown overboard so the lifeboat won't sink. Variations of the lifeboat situation have been widely used in public schools for many years. http://townhall.com/columnists/phyllisschlafly/2013/10/22/checking-your-kids-school-assignments-n1729032/page/full

Zaner-Bloser, which is based in Columbus, Ohio, is distributing a lesson plan aimed at teaching second-graders about “equality” by highlighting labor issues, according to Education Action Group Foundation, a non-partisan organization that looks to promote education reform.
As part of the plan, students spend a week reading “Harvesting Hope,” a book about Chavez written by children’s author Kathleen Krull, and then discuss what the lesson plan calls “scales of fairness,” which compare the living conditions of farm workers to that of land owners.
“Why are we teaching organized labor lessons to young children?” asked Kyle Olson, the publisher of the group’s website. “Isn’t there a simpler way to teach about fairness, like saying it’s not fair if Johnny works all day and gets one piece of candy while Jimmy plays video games all day and gets the same piece of candy?”  “Our focus is on distinctive programs that inspire all students to become engaged, literate participants in the global society.”

A
classroom of 14 and 15-year-old Illinois high school students were assigned the task of deciding the fate of ten fictional characters in an exercise that critics called a lesson in death panels.
The assignment was part of a sociology unit for freshmen and sophomore students at St. Joseph-Ogden High School and was first reported by writer Lenny Jarratt.
The lesson involves 10 people who are in desperate need of kidney dialysis.But there’s a problem. The local hospital only has enough machines to support six patients. “That means four people are not going to live,” the assignment states. “You must decide from the information below which six will survive.” [Preparing our children for serving on Death Panels, perhaps?  This ought to make them feel oh, so safe.]
“The first thing I thought was they were desensitizing kids to death panels,” he told me. “They are preparing them for it.”
Principal Brian Brooks told me that assessment is way off base. “The assignment has nothing to do with a ‘Death Panel,’” he said.  He said the purpose of the lesson was to teach students about social values and how people in our society unfortunately create biases based off of professions, race and gender.

MORE PORNO RECOMMENDED BY COMMON CORE — THE BLUEST EYE

[Macey has heavily edited the following excerpts from “The Bluest Eye” by Toni Morrison, but they are still very graphic.
In fact, the author of the book, Morrison, says that she wanted the reader to feel as though they are a “co-conspirator” with the rapist. She took pains to make sure she never portrayed the actions as wrong in order to show how everyone has their own problems.
