The executive order, which President Obama has issued, granting amnesty to millions of individuals now residing illegally in our country, should make clear the profound disregard our president has for American voters, our constitution, and our two-party system.
It might be possible to justify this action if it was addressing a national emergency of utmost urgency or clearly reflected the priorities and wishes of the American people. But neither is the case.
Republicans just won a decisive election, giving them control of both houses of congress, interpreted uniformly as a repudiation of the president and his agenda. more >>
A recently obtained U.S. Air Force document revealed that taxpayers dished out over $1.5 million in transportation flight costs for President Barack Obama's Labor Day weekend personal and fundraising commitments.
The government watchdog website, Judicial Watch, announced this week that it obtained, through a Freedom of Information Act request, a copy of an Air Force One expense record for this past Labor Day weekend, which shows that over $1,539,402 in taxpayer funds were spent on flight costs alone for Obama's various non-official trips that weekend.
To start his Labor Day weekend, the president flew from Washington, D.C. to Westchester, N.Y. on Friday Aug. 29 to take part in a fundraiser for the Democratic National Committee. In Westchester, Obama attended a fundraising BBQ hosted by former UBS Bank CEO Robert Wolf. more >>
Outspoken Republican Senator from Texas Ted Cruz called on the in-coming Republican-majority Senate to block any presidential nominee until President Barack Obama rescinds his executive action on immigration.
In a column published by Politico on Wednesday, Cruz stated that the U.S. Senate should act to check President Obama's executive power.
President Barack Obama appealed to the Good Book on Thursday evening when he addressed the nation regarding his executive order on immigration amnesty.
During his speech, Obama alluded to the Old Testament law that mandated that the Ancient nation of Israel look after the foreigners among them.
"Scripture tells us that we shall not oppress a stranger, for we know the heart of a stranger –- we were strangers once, too," said Obama. more >>
WASHINGTON — Two pro-life research groups announced Thursday on Capitol Hill that they've launched a new website designed to help healthcare consumers figure out which Obamacare plans include surcharges that will go directly toward funding abortions.
Troubled by the federal and state health exchanges' "lack of transparency" when it comes to which Obamacare plans require paying for an abortion-funding surcharge, researchers at The Family Research Council and The Charlotte Lozier Institute announced the creation of ObamacareAbortion.com. The website features an interactive map allowing users to thoroughly examine all the Obamacare options in their home states and has color-coded which plans include a surcharge for tax-funded abortion and which plans do not.
Rep. Chris Smith, R-N.J., co-chair of the Bipartisan Congressional Pro-life Caucus, spoke at the Thursday press conference announcing the website and chastised the federal health exchange for not providing consumers with any information to help them make an educated decision as to whether or not they want a health plan that includes abortion funding and its surcharge. more >>
President Barack Obama announced in an address Thursday evening that his executive order on immigration will focus on deporting illegal immigrants with a criminal background, and said that it is not realistic to deport all illegal immigrants in the U.S. He will instead offer temporary legal status to parents of American children and to more "DREAMers," children who entered the country illegally with their parents but have been raised in the U.S., which could affect up to 5 million immigrants, effectively protecting them from deportation.
"If you've been in America for more than five years; if you have children who are American citizens or legal residents; if you register, pass a criminal background check, and you're willing to pay your fair share of taxes – you'll be able to apply to stay in this country temporarily, without fear of deportation. You can come out of the shadows and get right with the law," Obama explained.
"That's what this deal is. Now let's be clear about what it isn't. This deal does not apply to anyone who has come to this country recently. It does not apply to anyone who might come to America illegally in the future. It does not grant citizenship, or the right to stay here permanently, or offer the same benefits that citizens receive – only Congress can do that. All we're saying is we're not going to deport you," he continued. more >>
