News of the day....

Ready to fly out of Los Angeles Wednesday to get to your family before Thanksgiving? Not so fast. Los Angeles’ labor unions have decided to protest on Thanksgiving Eve – one of the busiest travel days of the year – to snarl traffic around Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). President Obama’s favorite union, the Service Employees International Union, is spearheading the obnoxious effort; it’s supposed to last from 11 a.m to 4 p.m., virtually the entire day. The LAPD says that travellers should arrive 90 minutes earlier than usual. LAX already advises people to arrive two hours in advance.


In an inspiring example of Union Fail, the planned union walkout on Walmart during Black Friday led off with a one-employee walkout at a Walmart in St. Cloud, Florida on Wednesday.

Obama´s Thanksgiving Message
Doesn´t Thank God

Fresh off his reelection, President Barack Obama is asking his supporters to complete a survey that asks the people being polled to check off which “constituency groups” they identify with – there are 22 groups listed but not one for “whites” or “men.”

The post-election survey, distributed through to “take this organization forward,” includes the question, “Which constituency groups do you identify yourself with? Select all that apply.” It then lists 22 groups.
Other “constituency groups” include “Educators,” “Environmentalists,” “Labor,” “Students,” “People with disabilities,” and “Youth.”

Also as an option: “People of faith,”  [I have to admit how smart this is.  He is already working on the 2016 campaign, while thru Project ORCA our biggest effort was done only on Election Day - and it totally failed....]

The Department of Homeland Security is promoting welfare benefits for immigrants on its website despite a law that seeks to prevent new immigrants from becoming dependent after entering the United States.
The Immigration and Nationality Act, under section 212, states, “An alien who, in the opinion of the consular officer at the time of application for a visa, or in the opinion of the Attorney General at the time of application for admission or adjustment of status, is likely at any time to become a public charge is inadmissible.” Section 212 also addresses the health status and criminal background of someone seeking legal status.
I can only imagine the disgust with which my immigrant ancestors would react to Obama’s “Government Benefits” brochure. Meanwhile, Senators like Jeff Sessions are trying to get information about the Obama administration’s illegal promotion of welfare benefits, but are being stonewalled–the Obama administration’s invariable response to requests for transparency.For the first time in my lifetime, we have a federal government that feels no compunction about disregarding its own laws. If we had an independent press, the Obama administration’s lawbreaking might well give rise to public indignation.
This consolidation [of hospitals] means higher costs, the article explains. Some academic studies have confirmed that hospital consolidation means higher costs, and at least one has pinned some of the blame on Obama’s Affordable Care Act:
Looks like Obamacare is going down the same path — and undermining its stated purpose of lower costs. Of course, this never was a cost-control bill in the first place.
Stating the obvious, the Post observes:
Clinton’s peacemaking trip is Obama’s clearest signal yet to Israel that it should begin to pull back its campaign against militants in the Gaza Strip. The administration knows that with Clinton on the ground trying to resolve the crisis, it will be harder for Netanyahu to make good on his threat to invade Gaza.
Obama’s real position, then, is that he will attempt to dictate the tactics and operations through which Israel exercises the right to defend itself. And Obama’s efforts to dictate constitute a constraint on Israel’s right to defend itself.
But if, due to American constraints, things go badly for Israel, Obama can always have Candy Crowley read his original expansive but meaningless statement of support.
The Obama Administration is playing dirty.  Trying to put a price tag on access — either a news organization plays ball and accepts what they dish out without challenge, or the news organization is excluded, punished.

The Obama Administration is trying to punish Fox for trying to get the facts from the Administration (do I need to remind anyone that 4 Americans were murdered?)  The Administration in what looks like a coordinated effort is denying Fox access to information that they are handing out to other news organizations.  Why exclude Fox?  That is simple – to punish — to try to teach us a lesson not to pry,  not to look further for facts.  [Examples of such treatment are in the full article.]

Speaking in Green Bay, Wisconsin this afternoon, President Obama reminded voters that if Mitt Romney was president, he would “rubberstamp the Tea Party’s agenda.”

Ruling out compromise by pledging to rubberstamp the Tea Party’s agenda as President — that’s definitely not change,” Obama said. “In fact, that’s exactly the attitude in Washington that needs to go.”
