The heads of Republicans are exploding over President Obama’s imminent executive order for immigration reform that is expected to shield five million illegal immigrants.

Our immigration system has been broken for decades — and every minute we fail to act, millions of people who live in the shadows but want to play by the rules and pay taxes have no way to live right by the law and contribute to our country.

So tomorrow night, President Obama will address the nation to lay out the executive actions he’s taking to fix our broken immigration system. You can watch the President live tomorrow night at 8 p.m. ET at

This is a step forward in the President’s plan to work with Congress on passing common-sense, comprehensive immigration reform. He laid out his principles for that reform two years ago in Del Sol High School in Las Vegas — and that’s where he’ll return on Friday to discuss why he is using his executive authority now, and why Republicans in Congress must act to pass a long-term solution to immigration reform.  Source: WhiteHouse.Gov

Mikhail Gorbachev Warns World Closer to New Cold War

Former Russian president Mikhail Gorbachev warned that the world is closer to a new Cold War as a resut of the tensions between the major powers.


The 83-year-old accused the West, particularly the United States, of giving in to “triumphalism” after the collapse of the Soviet Union and the dissolution of the communist bloc a quarter century ago. The result, he said, could partly be seen in the inability of global powers to prevent or resolve conflicts in Yugoslavia, the Middle East and most recently Ukraine.

“The world is on the brink of a new Cold War. Some are even saying that it’s already begun,” Gorbachev said at an event marking the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, close to the city’s iconic Brandenburg Gate.

Gorbachev called for trust to be restored through dialogue with Moscow, and suggested the West should lift sanctions imposed against senior Russian officials over the country’s support for separatist rebels in eastern Ukraine. Failure to achieve security in Europe would make the continent irrelevant in world affairs, he said.


He should level some blame towards current president Vladimir Putin for his role in the rising tensions after he invaded the Ukraiine and seized the Crimean region.


Black Jobless Rate Inches Down to 10.9 Percent for October

Black Jobless Rate Inches Down to 10.9 Percent for October

The U.S. jobless rate hit a six-year-low at 5.6 percent, while black unemployment rate inched down to 10.9 percent for the month of October, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reports. Despite the positive trend, voters remained very skittish, breaking for the Republican Party instead.

Among the major worker groups, the unemployment rate for whites declined to 4.8 percent in October. The rates for adult men (5.1 percent), adult women (5.4 percent), teenagers (18.6 percent), blacks (10.9 percent), and Hispanics (6.8 percent) changed little over the month. The jobless rate for Asians was 5.0 percent (not seasonally adjusted), little changed from a year earlier.

In October, the number of long-term unemployed (those jobless for 27 weeks or more) was little changed at 2.9 million. These individuals accounted for 32.0 percent of the unemployed. Over the past 12 months, the number of long-term unemployed has declined by 1.1 million.

Payrolls grew by 214,000 jobs for the month of October. NBC News reports the labor report “coincided with the Federal Reserve’s decision to end its massive bond-buying to stimulate the economy, with the Fed expressing broad confidence in the economy’s health.”

US Ebola Crisis: Where’s the President Obama Who Showed Up During Superstorm Sandy?

US Ebola Crisis:  The New York Daily News issued a scathing rebuke of President Obama and the continuing fall-out from the handling of the Ebola cases rocking Texas, saying “America needs a better Ebola plan.” Too bad the President Obama who showed up in the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy is M.I.A.  Don’t get me wrong, I want my president to succeed, but I am also not afraid to criticize him when needed. Let’s not give an “October Surprise” to the Republican Party in the upcoming midterm elections.

It’s also very ironic that former White House press secretary Jay Carney jabbed his former boss, saying that  “substantive actions” need to be taken in the Ebola fight, such as travel restrictions. He told CNN on Thursday, “I think substantive actions need to be taken, and they may involve flight restrictions, they may involve moving all patients to specific hospitals in the country that can handle Ebola, and I think those would be wise decisions to make.” Carney added, “I’m not an expert, but I think that would demonstrate a level of seriousness in response to this that is merited at this point.”

Later on Wednesday, after cancelling a congressional campaign trip to Connecticut, President Obama said that the U.S. would become more aggressive in coordinating the national response to Ebola, including sending a CDC team to any hospital with a confirmed Ebola case.

But, by stopping short of issuing mandatory protocols, the President again fell back on the catch-as-catch-can system that produced such disastrous results in Dallas. He did so at the peril of health-care providers and the public — because trust that individual hospitals here, there and everywhere would perform superbly is decidedly misplaced.

Frieden acknowledged that he erred badly in assuming that virtually any hospital could stop the spread of Ebola by following proper protocols. Cluelessness about those protocols appears to remain widespread.

Neither Obama nor Frieden had the sense to issue directives with the firm, clear quality of standards sought by National Nurses United, representing thousands of nurses across the country.

I can’t solely blame President Obama for this mess. It’s not his fault that incompetence reigns supreme in this crisis. The Centers for Disease Control, specifically Director Thomas Frieden, and Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas are also culpable. It seems like a case of the blind leading the blind. I am amazed at how then-candidate Barack Obama ran a stellar presidential campaign, followed that up with a great reelection campaign, only to become a Waffler-in-Chief. Nurses Nina Pham and Amber Vinson were led like sheep to the slaughter following the shocking misdiagnosis of patient zero, Thomas Eric Duncan.  The level of incompetence at this hospital is worthy of a lawsuit, not only from the family of Mr. Duncan, but also one from all the nurses placed in harm’s way — optional training via webinar, nurses protecting their necks with tape, failure to isolate Thomas Eric Duncan, denying his family’s request for a blood transfusion early on, failing to send crucial medical tests through routine delivery systems, etc. The list goes on. We are supposed to be the superpower on all fronts. This is simply a disgrace. No. It’s bigger than a disgrace. It’s a travesty.

Larry Klayman: Obama Must Be “Taken Alive” for Unleashing Ebola on White People

Larry Klayman is accusing President Obama of unleashing the deadly Ebola virus on white people. There are no words for this lunacy, but no-one should be surprised at this right wing freakout:

Conservative legal activist Larry Klayman has filed a lawsuit against President Obama for “providing material support and aid to international terrorism and facilitating terrorism” by not implementing a travel ban on people from countries facing an Ebola outbreak.

Health experts have advised against enacting a travel ban, explaining that such a move might actually increase the risk of an outbreak, but Klayman has his own idea as to why the Obama administration hasn’t enacted a ban: anti-white racism.

Klayman writes in his weekly column that “Obama has favored his African brothers over the rest of us by allowing them free entry into this country” and “relegating whites and others who are not black or Muslim to the back of the bus has become an invidious form of reverse discrimination. This was not right when blacks were subjected to this treatment, and it is not right now – particularly given its deadly implications.”

“I do not advocate violence, and I want Obama to be taken alive to be deported and pay for his inadequacies under the rule of law,” Klayman writes. “But he must be forced from office as soon as possible, before all is lost.” Source: Right Wing Watch

I’m pretty sure Rush Limbaugh is giving his two cents too, but why bother commenting on what the nutjobs are saying? It defies logic.

GOPer Debbie Dunnegan: I Meant “No Ill Intent” Calling for Obama Overthrow

GOPer Debbie Dunnegan: I Meant “No Ill Intent” Calling for Obama Overthrow (Photo credit:

Missouri Republican official Debbie Dunnegan said she meant no “ill intent” when she asked on Facebook if the military could overthrow “domestic enemy” President Barack Obama. Um, then you wonder why blacks are up in arms in Missouri. Dunnegan, the Jefferson County Recorder of Deeds, is up for reelection in November. I urge all the black voters in Missouri to vote for her opponent.

According to a screenshot published by Progress Missouri, Dunnegan referred to President Obama as “our domestic enemy.” She wrote in the post, “I have a question for all my friends who have served or are currently serving in our military…having not put on a uniform nor taken any type of military oath, there has to be something that I am just not aware of. But I cannot and do not understand why no action is being taken against our domestic enemy. I know he is supposedly the commander in chief, but the constitution gives you the authority.”

Debbie Dunnegan claims her comments were taken out of context, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports. She told the newspaper, “Something innocent and simpe got twisted into a disaster because it’s an election.” She added, “I meant no ill intent toward the president. I meant no ill intent toward anybody.” How so? It’s crystal clear that she is calling for President Obama to be overthrown in a military coup because he is our “domestic enemy.”

Ms. Dunnegan hasn’t read the Constitution, has she? Military coup to overthrow the president? She has been watching way too much TV. It’s clear she hasn’t been reading.

Mitt Romney Cracks Obama Joke at Joni Ernst Campaign Event

Two-time presidential candidate (loser) Mitt Romney cracked a “joke” about President Obama during at a rally for Joni Ernst.  He began by saying, “Now when you’re running for office people tell you, you shouldn’t tell jokes. But I’m not running for office, so I can tell one, National Journal’s Shane Goldmacher reports.

Here’s Romney’s joke:

President Obama went to the bank to cash a check and he didn’t have his ID. And the teller said you’ve got to prove who you are.

He said, “How should I do that?” She said the other day Phil Mickelson came in, he didn’t have his ID but he set up a little cup on the ground, took a golf ball, putted it right into that cup so they knew it was Phil Mickelson. They cashed his check.

And then Andre Agassi came in. And Andre Agassi didn’t have his ID either. He put a little target on the wall, took a tennis ball and racquet– hit it onto that target time. We knew that was Andre Agassi so we cashed his check.

And she said to him, “Is there anything you can do to prove who you are?” And [Obama] said, “I don’t have a clue.”

And she said, “Well, Mr. President, do you want your money in small bills or large bills.”

Sounds like Mitt Romney should stick to his day job. Um, how could I forget, he’s a one-percenter, who can do as he pleases, unlike the 47 percenters he mocked during the 2012 presidential campaign.

Here’s Mitt Romney telling his Obama joke:

Eagle Forum founder and right wingnut Phyllis Schlafly implies that President Obama is intentionally bringing the deadly Ebola virus to America to make us more like Africa.

Here’s more from Right Wing Watch:

In an interview with WorldNetDaily published today, Eagle Forum founder Phyllis Schlafly weighed in on the unfounded theory gaining traction in the right-wing media that Central American young people are to blame for an outbreak of a childhood respiratory illness in the U.S.

“There are all kinds of diseases in the rest of the world, and we don’t want them in this country,” Schlafly told WND, adding that “of all the things [Obama has] done, I think this thing of letting these diseased people into this country to infect our own people is just the most outrageous of all.”

She went on to imply that President Obama is intentionally allowing people infected with Ebola into the United States because he wants America to be “just like everybody else, and if Africa is suffering from Ebola, we ought to join the group and be suffering from it, too. That’s his attitude.”

Phyllis Schlafly uttered this nonsense with a straight face. Wow. There are no words….

Saturday Night Live mocked President Obama’s ISIS (Islamic State) missteps in cold opener with comedian Jay Pharoah, playing POTUS. The group’s social media proficiency was also mentioned.

During an interview on a fictional “60 Minutes” episode, President Obama (Jay Pharoah) said the administration not only underestimated ISIS’s military proficiency but also its social media proficiency.

Pharoah: “These terrorists have nothing to do. They can be tweeting all day.”

Jay Pharoah said ISIS was seeking to get attention by using popular hashtags: “One day the Black Flag of ISIS will fly over the White House #TheVoiceIsBack.” He also said terrorists were raising money on Kickstarter to make up for the lost revenue from oil facilities that have been destroyed.

Pharoah said “Apparently every time we thought we were giving money to Zach Braff, it was really going straight to terrorists.”

Report: Bogus Congressman Got Backstage at Obama Black Caucus Event

Bloomberg News reports that an unidentified man posing as a member of Congress made it into a secure area backstage during President Obama’s appearance last week at a Congressional Black Caucus Foundation awards dinner in Washington, DC.

The man entered the backstage area during or just after Obama’s speech at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center as members of Congress gathered there to have their pictures taken with the president, said the official, who asked for anonymity to discuss the incident, which has not previously been made public.

The unidentified man said he was Representative Donald Payne Jr., a Democrat from New Jersey, the official said. One member of the White House staff determined that the man wasn’t Payne, and another asked him to leave, the official said. He did so without incident and wasn’t detained.

Agency spokesman Brian Leary told Bloomberg that the agency did its job in this case.

“This guy went through security, fully screened,” he said.

I’m sorry but these blunders are leaving the president open to harm. Is that the intent of the Secret Service agents?
