Right to work at Occupy Eugene is compromised; Occupy Portland demonstrators don't take offered jobs; The Diaper Recovery Act; Biden is factually challenged; States could use money for teachers' jobs for anything else; US Capital now sanctuary city; Seeking law making critism of Islam to be racial discrimination; Major diplomatic and military rebuff of Obama and USA; Department of Justice benefits Muslim teacher

"Socialism only works in two places: Heaven where they don't need it and hell where they already have it."

-Ronald Reagan
Breitbart reports: Tom Hunnel has been selling glass jewelry at the Eugene Saturday Market since 1975. But the Occupy Eugene tent city has taken over the same spot where he does business.
"They're taking away my right to work," Hunnel said. "I have a right to work in this town. I pay rent on that spot whether I like it or not." Hunnel said that if the occupiers stay put, hundreds of folks who count on Saturday Market sales will be out of jobs.
Breitbart reports: An evil capitalist goes to Occupy Portland looking to help people find work. Most people just pass by. One prospective worker is apparently a felon. Another gentleman declines after asking if the work is from a union. Still, others merely mock the capitalist, or are more concerned with publicizing their marches. Out of the hundreds of people there, most of which complain about being out of work, only about 15 signed up for work.
Human Events reports: An economic recovery bill authored by Rep. Rosa DeLauro (D.-Conn.) seeks to empower struggling families by directing the federal government to distribute free diapers through day care centers.

The Diaper Investment and Aid to Promote Economic Recovery Act (DIAPER Act) would “relieve some of the stress on families facing hardship in this economy” by providing this direct service, DeLauro said in a letter to congressional colleagues urging them to co-sponsor her bill.

Without diapers, children are not allowed to attend day care, said DeLauro, who described those in need as a “lost generation of Americans.”
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- reports: However, a review of the last Uniform Crime Report released by the Federal Bureau of Investigation strongly suggests that either Mr. Biden is ignorant of the facts regarding crime or he's an out-and-out liar and using fear to push through another "stimulus" plan masquerading as a jobs plan, according to several police commanders who spoke with the Law Enforcement Examiner.
These and additional data are presented in the 2010 edition of the FBI’s annual report Crime in the United States. This publication is a statistical compilation of offense and arrest data reported by law enforcement agencies voluntarily participating in the FBI’s Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) program.

Examiner writes: Democrat-dominated senate 'freezes' President Obama's 'credit line'

Jon Tester (D-MT) went on the record as saying ... "This bill fails to give taxpayers any guarantee that this money would actually be used to hire teachers and invest in our schools.  States would get loads of money with little guidance that they spend the money on teachers."
Visibly angered, President Obama was quoted as saying, "For the second time in two weeks, every single Republican in the United States Senate has chosen to obstruct a bill that would create jobs and get our economy going again. That's unacceptable. We must do what's right for the country and pass the common-sense proposals in the American Jobs Act."
D.C.'s Examiner reports: Mayor Vincent Gray signed an executive order to ban police officers from making inquiries into a person's immigration status. While most foreign countries regularly ask visitors to display their passports and visas, the capital of the United States now prohibits such requests by law enforcement. 

Bare Naked Islam reports: Muslims demand Justice Department make a legal declaration that U.S. citizens’ criticism of Islam constitutes ‘racial discrimination’ 

Top Justice Department officials convened a meeting where invited Islamist advocates lobbied them for cutbacks in anti-terror funding, changes in agents’ training manuals, additional curbs on investigators and a legal declaration that any criticism of Islam constitutes racial discrimination. (Islam is NOT a race)

DAILY CALLER  The department’s “civil rights lawyers are top of the line — I say this with utter honesty — I know they can come up with a way” to redefine criticism as discrimination, said Sahar Aziz, a female, Egyptian-American lawyer. “I’d be willing to give a shot at it,” said Aziz, who is a fellow at the Michigan-based Muslim advocacy group, the Institute for Social Policy & Understanding.

Iraq rejects US request to maintain bases after troop withdrawal

Obama announces the full withdrawal of troops from Iraq but fails to persuade Nouri al-Maliki to allow US to keep bases there. 
The US suffered a major diplomatic and military rebuff on Friday when Iraq finally rejected its pleas to maintain bases in the country beyond this year.
Barack Obama announced at a White House press conference that all American troops will leave Iraq by the end of December, a decision forced by the final collapse of lengthy talks between the US and the Iraqi government on the issue.
The Iraqi decision is a boost to Iran, which has close ties with many members of the Iraqi government and which had been battling against the establishment of permanent American bases.
Wall St. Journal opines: In the end it couldn't have come as any great shock when the Department of Justice intervened on behalf of a Muslim school teacher who claimed that the board of her Illinois school district was guilty of religious bias. Nor could it have come as any surprise that the Board of Education, Berkeley School District 87 Cook Country Illinois, was finally forced to settle the case brought against it by the DOJ. Still, even Americans accustomed to the relentless -- more precisely the relentlessly selective -- political correctness of the Obama Justice Department had to have been startled at the facts of this case and the deranged notions of equity that had impelled Eric Holder's DOJ to go rushing into battle against the school district.
