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

months off: Martha's Vineyard break will put Obama over 140 days on vacation  

When President Obama wraps up his 16-day summer break next month on Martha's Vineyard, Mass., he will have taken all or part of 141 days of vacation, time split between summers on the island, winters in his native Hawaii and birthday weekends at his Chicago home.  http://washingtonexaminer.com/5-months-off-marthas-vineyard-break-will-put-obama-over-140-days-on-vacation/article/2551079


NAACP Legal Defense Fund: Detroit Water Service Shutoffs Were Racially Motivated 

[Gee, I wonder if it could possibly have anything to do with the fact that they were not paying their bills.]   http://detroit.cbslocal.com/2014/07/21/naacp-detroit-water-service-shutoffs-are-racially-motivated/



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.

Bush vindicated!]The WikiLeaks de facto declassification of privileged material makes it case closed: Saddam Hussein possessed weapons of mass destruction -- and intended to restart his program once the heat was off.

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.

New York Common Core Website Sent Students to Sex Quiz Page

[Here is your warning: while it is important to know what is going on, this is very graphic, and being presented to children!]

Questions on the “Are you a slut?” test include:

Students who wish to find out if they are a “loser” must answer these questions:

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 fa├žade, its declared intention provides cover for a highly aggressive campaign of multiculturalism, "global citizenship," redistributive economics, and anti-Western attitudes.
One organization attempting to take the lead is the Association of International Education Administrators (AEIA).  http://www.americanthinker.com/2014/01/global_citizens_of_the_world_obey.htmlhttp://

Schools across the country are rethinking “zero tolerance” discipline policies under which children have been suspended, even arrested, for minor offenses like cursing, getting into shoving matches and other garden-variety misbehavior that in years past would have been resolved with detention or meetings with a child’s parents.  http://www.nytimes.com/2014/01/06/opinion/zero-tolerance-reconsidered.html?hp&rref=opinion&_r=1&#comments

The Stanford University study found that charter public schools had significantly more "economically disadvantaged" students than traditional public schools.
Dev Davis, research manager at CREDO at Stanford University, said they found that 70 percent of the charter students were economically disadvantaged, meaning they were eligible for free or reduced price meals. She said 55 percent of the traditional public school students were economically disadvantaged.
Also, the Stanford study found that black and Hispanic students did "significantly" better in reading and math when in charter schools than their peers in conventional public schools.  http://www.michigancapitolconfidential.com/19477
----------------Popular television and radio host Sean Hannity delivered a hard hitting response to Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s claim that if “extreme conservatives” are “right-to-life, pro-assault-weapon, anti-gay,” then “they have no place in the state of New York, because that’s not who New Yorkers are.”
Pledging to eventually vacate the state, Hannity delivered a pointed message on his radio show Monday, saying, “Gov. Cuomo, I’m going to leave and I’m taking all of my money with me — every single solitary penny.”
Hannity went on to remind the governor that there are numerous employees who work for his radio and television programs and that these individuals will be out of a job if he decides to move out of the state.       From The Blaze.com
American influence in the Middle East will dwindle to Iran's benefit if the United States responds to the Arab Spring upheaval by pulling government aid, the Obama administration's top diplomat for the region told Congress Wednesday.
Instead, Assistant Secretary of State for Near Eastern Affairs Jeffrey Feltman testified that lawmakers should approve the administration's request to create a $770 million incentive fund to support democratic and free-market reforms in the region. The fund would address the root causes of the upheaval, Feltman said, while “lack of these reforms will continue to undermine our interests across the board.”  Read more: http://thehill.com/blogs/global-affairs/middle-east-north-africa/226527-state-department-urges-congress-to-continue-pouring-money-into-arab-countries#ixzz2r3er2Na3

Why is the EPA altering state boundaries in Wyoming - and reversing over 100 years of established law?  Well, apparently the city of Riverton now falls under the jurisdiction of the Wind River Indian Reservation.  This, obviously, isn't sitting well with the governor's office - which is urging the EPA to reconsider its ruling and respect the rule of law.
Reacting to the decision to reduce the size of Wyoming by about a million acres, Wyoming Governor Matt Mead warned of the dangers to all Americans of this type of unilateral land redistribution by the EPA:

Despite the drumbeat of news stories claiming that every storm is evidence of global warming, demanding immediate action, global storm activity is at historic lows, and sea level rises are miniscule. And it's not like Boston has never experienced a nor'easter.
That $40 million for solar batteries (the price of 40,000 gasoline generators) smells like a payoff to the solar lobby.
As for the $10 million for seawall improvement, it might be money well spent -- an actual shovel-ready job
