August 19, 2011 by legitgov

Obama Administration to Review All Deportation Cases, Apply DREAM Act-Style Criteria 18 Aug 2011 The Obama administration announced Thursday that it would launch a case-by-case review of illegal immigrants slated for deportation, in a move that could grant a reprieve to so-called DREAM Act beneficiaries and thousands of others. The DREAM Act is a proposal in Congress to give illegal immigrants who came to the U.S. as children a chance at legal status if they complete two years of college or military service. Though the bill has not passed, supporters and critics alike suggested Thursday's announcement could serve to unilaterally carry out its provisions.

US, allies declare that Syria's Assad must leave [Ok, time for Syria to declare that Obama do the same.] 19 Aug 2011 Executing a global squeeze play, the United States and its European allies on Thursday demanded an end to four decades of brutal family dictatorship in Syria and underscored the tough talk with new sanctions on President Bashar Assad's government. But the diplomacy [sic] left many questions unanswered, including how the demand for Assad's ouster can be backed up in the absence of any appetite for military intervention, and who inside the Syrian government or among the country's fragmented opposition might take his place.

But the officers aren't there for a friendly "hello" -- they're trying to deter and detect passengers who pose a risk to aviation security. As part of the TSA's new behavior-detection pilot program that started this week, screeners are engaging each passenger in Terminal A in casual conversation in an effort to detect suspicious behavior. After passengers provide their boarding pass and ID, they have to answer a few questions from TSA officers who have received two weeks of training. [LOL!]

August 18, 2011 by legitgov

White House, Senate Democrats clash over campaign cash 18 Aug 2011 Senate Democrats are increasingly concerned that President Barack Obama's campaign money machine is sucking up so much cash that it will cut into the party's aggressive campaign to hold on to the Senate next year, several Democratic sources say. Democratic senators have already pressed Obama campaign officials - including campaign manager Jim Messina - not to lock up the richest Democratic donors, but the presidential campaign declined to make such a promise. [Right, Wall Street troll Obama WANTS to turn the Senate over to the GOP, as well - so all three branches of government will be in Republican hands. Also, notice that the only fight Obusha has -- is with *Democrats?* --LRP]
