Obama poised to announce go-it-alone plan on immigration Thursday

November 19, 2014 by legitgov

Obama poised to announce go-it-alone plan on immigration Thursday 19 Nov 2014 President Barack Obama is set on Thursday to outline a controversial plan to relax U.S. immigration policy and grant relief from deportation to as many as 5 million undocumented immigrants in a go-it-alone move that will deepen a partisan divide with Republicans [who, incidentally, never acted on immigration policies]. Sources close to the administration said the rollout would include a televised speech by Obama on Thursday night laying out the plan followed by a trip to Las Vegas on Friday to build support...[In addition to the granting of millions of new work visas for undocumented workers,] Obama will act to help companies hire and retain high-skilled workers from abroad. [That way, wages are driven down across the board, and the US taxpayer will then foot the bill for workers at the poverty level, as we do for Wal-Mart employees, etc. Obama's actions are driven by Wall Street, as usual. Why do progressives demand and cheer such moves? --LRP]

Western New York buried by snow, braces for more 19 Nov 2014 Western New York state braced for a fresh wave of heavy snow on Wednesday after a freakish storm swept off the Great Lakes and buried the region under 5 feet (1.5 meters) of it, killing at least six people and stranding motorists in cars overnight. The fierce storm paused on Wednesday morning and the sun broke through over the city of Buffalo, but snow was expected to resume later in the day, said Deputy Erie County Executive Richard Tobe. The next snow was forecast to arrive by nightfall on Wednesday and dump another 3 feet (1 meter) of snow, he said.

US Planes Supplying ISIL with Weapons, Foodstuff - Iraq Intel Report 16 Nov 2014 Iraqi intelligence sources disclosed that US military planes have been supplying the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant Takfiri terrorists with weapons and foodstuff under the guise of air raids on militants' positions.

"The Iraqi intelligence sources reiterated that the US military planes have airdropped several aid cargoes for ISIL terrorists to help them resist the siege laid by the Iraqi army, security and popular forces," added the report. On Saturday, Iraqi security sources disclosed that the ISIL terrorist group is using the state-of-the-art weapons which are only manufactured by the US and each of their bullets are worth thousands of dollars.

Obama: I will send US troops to fight ISIS if they get nuclear weapons 18 Nov 2014 US President Barack Obama has, for the first time, admitted he would deploy US ground troops to Syria and Iraq to fight Islamic State - that is, if the extremist group obtained a nuclear weapon. "If we discovered that [Islamic State] had gotten possession of a nuclear weapon, and we had to run an operation to get it out of their hands, then, yes," Obama told reporters at a news conference in Brisbane, Australia, on Sunday. "I would order it." [Of course he will. All those Minot AFB nuclear 'oddities' are poised to hit pay-dirt: After the CIA supplies ISIS with a nuke, they'll have a nuke. --LRP]

Health Care Law Recasts Insurers as Obama Allies 17 Nov 2014 As Americans shop in the health insurance marketplace for a second year, President Obama is depending more than ever on the insurance companies that five years ago he accused of padding profits and canceling coverage for the sick...The insurers in turn have provided crucial support to Mr. Obama in court battles over the health care law, including a case now before the Supreme Court challenging the federal subsidies paid to insurance companies on behalf of low- and moderate-income consumers. Since Mr. Obama signed the law, share prices for four of the major insurance companies -- Aetna, Cigna, Humana and UnitedHealth -- have more than doubled, while the Standard & Poor's 500-stock index has increased about 70 percent.

Why Marxism is on the rise again

November 19, 2014 by legitgov

Why Marxism is on the rise again 4 July 2012 Sales of Das Kapital, Marx's masterpiece of political economy, have soared ever since 2008, as have those of The Communist Manifesto and the Grundrisse (or, to give it its English title, Outlines of the Critique of Political Economy). Their sales rose as British workers bailed out the banks to keep the degraded system going and the snouts of the rich firmly in their troughs while the rest of us struggle in debt, job insecurity or worse. Clearly, more than two decades after the fall of the Berlin Wall, the former East Germany hasn't airbrushed its Marxist past. In 2008, Reuters reports, a survey of east Germans found 52% believed the free-market economy was "unsuitable" and 43% said they wanted socialism back.

Did pictures of Homeland Security vehicles massing near Ferguson get man fired? 18 Nov 2014 A Navy veteran in Missouri said he was fired from his job and called a terrorist for posting pictures to Facebook of Homeland Security vehicles massing near Ferguson. Mark Paffrath, who worked for the Drury hotel chain, said he could not believe what he was hearing when he was called into his boss's office last week, a couple of days after posting the pictures which he took in the parking lot of the hotel where he worked. The pictures he took and posted on Thursday were of dozens of vehicles marked with the logos of the Department of Homeland Security and Federal Protection Services. Paffrath said the large number of federal vehicles and employees arrived last week.

Voter Laws Scrutinized For Impact On Midterms

November 19, 2014 by legitgov

Voter Laws Scrutinized For Impact On Midterms 18 Nov 2014 In North Carolina, early voting was cut by seven days. In Kansas, 22,000 people were stopped from registering to vote because they lacked proof of citizenship. And in Texas, Democrats say the country's toughest voter ID law contributed to a one-term congressman losing a tight race to his Republican rival. After an Election Day that featured a wave of new voting restrictions across the country, data and details about who cast a ballot are being picked over to see if tighter rules swayed the outcomes of any races or contributed to the lowest voter turnout in 72 years.

Key Polar Bear Population Plummets in Alaska and Canada 17 Nov 2014 A key polar bear population fell nearly by half in the past decade, marked by a dramatic increase in deaths of young cubs, a new U.S.-Canada study says.

The bear population shrank to about 900 in 2010, down from about 1,600 in 2004.

Senate Rejects Construction of Devastating Keystone XL Pipeline 18 Nov 2014 The U.S. Senate today rejected a bill requiring the construction of the Keystone XL pipeline.

FBI Warns Ferguson Decision 'Will Likely' Lead to Violence By Extremist Protesters

November 18, 2014 by legitgov

Heads up! A big, fat Ferguson false flag likely on the way: FBI Warns Ferguson Decision 'Will Likely' Lead to Violence By Extremist Protesters 17 Nov 2014 As the nation waits to hear whether a Missouri police officer will face charges for killing unarmed teenager Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., the FBI is warning law enforcement agencies across the country that the decision "will likely" lead some extremist protesters to threaten and even attack police officers or federal agents. Peaceful protesters could be caught in the middle, and electrical facilities or water treatment plants could also become targets. [?!?] In addition, so-called "hacktivists" like the group "Anonymous" could try to launch cyber-attacks against authorities. [One can only hope. Notice that the FBI is *silent* on the KKK's death threats against Ferguson protesters?]

Russia fears ethnic cleansing in Ukraine amid rise of neo-Nazism - Putin 17 Nov 2014 As Kiev continues to amass its forces in eastern Ukraine despite the ceasefire and use radical nationalist groups as armed battalions, Moscow is concerned about possible ethnic cleansing there, Russian President Vladimir Putin told ARD in an interview. Speaking with Hubert Seipel of the German channel ARD ahead of the G20 summit, Putin warned of catastrophic consequences for Ukraine if the Kiev government continues to nurture radical nationalism and Russophobia, including in the ranks of its military and National Guard units that are still being sent as reinforcements to the country's troubled east. "Frankly speaking, we are very concerned about any possible ethnic cleansings and Ukraine ending up as a neo-Nazi state. What are we supposed to think if people are bearing swastikas on their sleeves? Or what about the SS emblems that we see on the helmets of some military units now fighting in eastern Ukraine?"

Are Flu Vaccines Risking Senior Citizens' Lives? Some Say Yes

Are Flu Vaccines Risking Senior Citizens' Lives? Some Say Yes 16 Nov 2014 ...In her blog, Sharyl Attkisson cites a buried JAMA study from almost a decade ago which showed that there was no improvement in mortality rates among senior citizens with a flu vaccine, even after greatly increased vaccination rates...Johns Hopkins scientist, Peter Doshi, Ph.D., issued a report in the prestigious British Medical Journal, according to NewsLI, asserting that the CDC policy of routinely recommending the flu vaccine is being based on "low quality studies that do not substantiate claims." Interestingly, Doshi cites an Australian study which found significant risks for children as well, stating that "one in every 110 children under the age of five had convulsions following vaccinations in 2009 for H1N1 influenza." During the drug trials for the Fluzone flu vaccine, 23 seniors out of 3,833 died after receiving the shot, according to the drug's package insert, reported by Health Impact News. Another 226 experienced "serious adverse effects."
