Poll: Hispanics closely divided on executive amnesty

Thomas Lifson  
"An NBC News poll discovered that President Obama’s planned executive amnesty order is not overwhelmingly popular among Hispanics, while nearly half of all Americans oppose it.  In fact, the margin of opposition among all Americans is greater than the [margin] of support among Hispanics.

"The casual assumption that Spanish-speakers automatically want to open the floodgates for illegal immigrants overlooks the vast diversity among people grouped together in a census category that assumes people from Barcelona are the same as people from Tegucigalpa.  It also fails to recognize that people who came here legally, or whose ancestors did, may resent preference given to line-jumpers.

"Here is what the poll says (emphasis added):"... More here.

... "CNN’s Brian Stelter reports that ABC, NBC, and CBS will not televise Obama’s speech. Stelter noted that the White House did not explicitly request airtime for the address before announcing it. Univision, however, is expected to air Obama’s speech.

"White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said that the president opted for a prime-time address to “talk to as many as Americans as possible.”

"Earnest added that 8:00 p.m. was when people were either “sitting in front of their televisions” or “sitting in front of their tablets or their smartphones.' ”

“ 'Mr. Speaker, the Federal food police now control what American children are permitted to eat in public schools. The First Lady has said, “We just can’t leave it up to the parents,” U.S. Rep. Ted Poe (R-TX) said in a recent speech on the House floor.
"He continued:
Several things are wrong about this totalitarian control of children. Kids say the portions are so small or the food is so disliked they must smuggle food from home or just go hungry. This leads to the Federal Government food being wasted and thrown away at the end of the day.

Sharpton Organizing Rallies/Riots In 25 Cities Once Ferguson Decision Is Known…

Al Sharpton

Weasel Zippers     "Via PzFeed:
. . .From a news conference in New York City today, the Rev. Al Sharpton says he’ll be with the family of Michael Brown when the grand jury’s decision is released as to whether Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson will be criminally charged.
Sharpton says once the announcement is made, demonstrators will make their voice known.
Sharpton is organizing rallies in 25 cities to have vigils and non-violent demonstrations at federal buildings.


... "The Downing Street memo consisted of minutes from a July 2002 meeting of British labor, defense and intelligence officials during the run-up to the Iraq War, in which the MI6 head, Richard Dearlove, reportedly said that "Bush wanted to remove Saddam Hussein, through military action, justified by the conjunction of terrorism and WMD. But the intelligence and facts were being fixed around the policy.' " ...

..."You don't pay a half-million dollars to someone who is only peripherally involved in making policy. (Unless we're talking about Obama himself.)

    "There was no tape of Bush and Blair running around saying: Trust this guy -- the memo writer is our guide! But that's what Obama, Nancy Pelosi, then-Sen. John Kerry and other Democrats said about Gruber. 
  -- Kerry on Oct. 1, 2009: "(Gruber) has been our guide on a lot of this ..."

    -- Pelosi on Nov. 5, 2009: "Our bill brings down rates -- I don't know if you have seen Jonathan Gruber's MIT analysis ..."

    -- Obama's Organizing for Action website, until the tapes surfaced: "Jon Gruber, who helped write Obamacare ..." 
"Gruber had more than a dozen meetings at the White House during the drafting of Obamacare. The Downing Street memo writer had no meetings at the Bush White House. Even the guy he was quoting had only one. "

Militant Group Offers Cash For Location of Officer Darren Wilson, ‘Just Wanna Ask Him a Few Questions’


Mail Online reports:
A group describing itself as a ‘Militant Resistance’ to a ‘corrupt police state’ has offered $5000 for details of Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson’s whereabouts, MailOnline can reveal.
Officer Wilson, 28, has been in hiding on paid leave ever since he gunned down unarmed teenager Michael Brown, 18, on 9 August.
Now, in one of a series of incendiary tweets the RbG Black Rebels have stated, ‘We are paying $5k cash for location of Ofc. Darren Wilson. Real $, no joke, no crime we just wana get his photo an ask him a few questions.’
And though the RbG Black Rebels insist this is not a bounty on the officer’s head, the chilling offer is set in the context of a stream of violent online posts boasting of ‘combat experience’, ‘stockpiling’ ammunition, cleaning out gun stores and being #WarReady.
Speaking of militant groups who just want to ask a few questions:

They actually had a dry run … On December the 15th, the night in question – the videos are even more chilling. It shows that these individuals in the same exact car as three days earlier were on the property.”...

Americanos; Un Grande Stupido

Political Cartoons by Michael Ramirez

It’s Time For Leftist Gruber Truthers To Give It A Rest    "Jonathan Gruber was a key architect of Obamacare who was intimately involved in the drafting of the legislation.

"That is a fact. It is not arguable. It is not assailable. It is backed up by overwhelming contemporaneous evidence long before Gruber became a controversial figure whose loose lips threatened to sink the Obamacare ship. And the people who pimped Gruber as the all-knowing health care savior who single-handedly built the model that guaranteed a future of health care glory were not Obamacare’s critics. They were its most ardent proponents.

The Vindication of John Roberts  "But the Gruber quotation did something else, too, which was to trigger a memory of another, earlier quote (emphasis mine, citation omitted):
In answering that constitutional question [of whether the Affordable Care Act’s individual mandate is a tax], this Court follows a functional approach, “[d]isregarding the designation of the exaction, and viewing its substance and application.”
Such an analysis suggests that the shared responsibility payment [i.e.¸ the individual mandate] may for constitutional purposes be considered a tax.
Report: Vermont fires Gruber   ... "Gruber had a $400,000 contract with the state, where he was charged with helping to create a single-payer system. But he has faced fierce criticism over the last two weeks for recently unearthed comments saying the “stupidity of the American voter” and a “lack of transparency” aided ObamaCare’s passage." ...

‘It’s Staying on My Agenda’: Landrieu Vows Keystone Crusade

"In floor debate, Barbara Boxer said the XL in Keystone stands for “extra lethal": "This is filthy dirty oil."

Many see rioting as a black entitlement

Report: Alleged Officer Warns Ferguson ‘If You Do Not Have a Gun, Get One’

... "The identity of the commenter or their status as a police officer was not confirmed by independent sources. But this comes as the FBI released an intelligence bulletin stating a grand jury decision “will likely be exploited by some individuals to justify threats and attacks against law enforcement and critical infrastructure.' ”
... "Fifty years after the cataclysmic riots of the 1960s, rioting is still regarded as virtually a black entitlement. No one is “bracing,” in press parlance, for white riots or police violence should Officer Wilson be indicted. Nor were there preparations for Asian riots last month in Los Angeles as a jury heard a murder case against a 22-year-old thug from South Central L.A., who, along with an accomplice, had shot two Chinese engineering students attending the University of Southern California in 2012." ...

Ferguson: Riots, Race and the Democratic Machine

The Right Planet
Race politics and identity politics are dividing American society, and there is nothing ‘grassroots’ about it. It’s all engineered from the top down. On November 5th, the day after US midterm elections, President Barack Obama met with Ferguson ‘activist’ leaders. It was not part of his daily schedule. He proceeded to tell protesters to, “stay on course”. Did the President mean ‘stay on course for the rioting’? Why is Obama meeting with violent protesters before a preliminary verdict is reached in what could be a protracted legal case?
From 21st Century Wire , which includes these words:
“This time we’re doing it right… This time we’re not burning down our communities. This time we’re going out to Whitey’s suburbs and burning down HIS community. We’re going to make Whitey feel the pain.”
You can also expect equally pathetic, racist rhetoric to be coming from the White Supremacist, or “Aryan Nation” (as if there was such a thing) crowd too.
The US media, the Democratic Party Machine, Al Sharpton, and the Southern Poverty Law Center – will all see the dollar signs, and lap it up – until there is nothing left but ashes. And that will not help Michael Brown, or his family either.
Let the fireworks begin…   Thank you Mr. President!

You knew this was coming, didn't you? Hitler finds out Field Marshall Gruber spilled the beans

PowerLine  "In the video below, we catch a glimpse of Hitler’s reaction to the Grubergate videos. I’d love to see Obama’s reaction. It can’t be too far off from what is depicted here.

"I can’t help myself; I think the video is funny as hell. The thing is full of quotable quotes, but I’m picking this one: “Even Ron Fournier knows we think he’s stupid.' ”
