Obama Spends $25 Million to Prevent Illegal Immigrants’ Kids from Getting Fat

Ben Johnson,The White House Watch

Law-abiding politicians would deport illegal immigrants;the Obama
administration spends scarce tax dollars assuring their well-being. Judicial
Watch reports
the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has a ground-breaking new
program to stamp out childhood obesity —among the children of illegals.
(Apparently Americans aren’t the only ones who have “gotten
a little soft.”
) “Like all other child obesity war programs launched by the
Obama Administration this one will target poor ethnic minorities,”writes
Judicial Watch. But this program will serve “limited English”communities:

[T]he CDC will spend $25 million on “innovative approaches” to reach
low–income and minority families in a quest to wipe out childhood obesity.
This,in turn,will prevent the onset of many diseases associated with fat
kids,including type two diabetes,asthma,and heart disease.

The “innovative approaches” include combining changes in medical care with
“supportive changes” in schools,child care centers and community venues such as
retail food stores and parks,according to the CDC’s announcement.
Additionally,health workers will provide a bridge between families and community
resources to better inform and educate hard-to-reach,limited English proficiency
and minority communities about disease prevention,health insurance opportunities
and disease management.

The money will spent in three states:California,Texas,and Massachusetts,where
members
of Obama’s
own illegal alien family
live.

Michelle Obama,the president’s bitter
half
,has repeatedly blamed
white racism
for the pandemic of overfed minority children.

Obama’s U.S. Dept. of Agriculture has already spent $2
million installing cameras in Texas school lunch rooms to document the foods
minority children eat
. The “very sophisticated”spy cams photograph
students’trays before and after lunch,then an associated software program
calculates the total number of calories each child consumed.

This administration has been particularly solicitous to those who barely
speak the language. The Labor Department,headed by Hilda
Solis
,spent $10.7
million
to provide safety training to “low
literacy or limited English proficiency.”

The program’s wording proves the Obama administration is explicitly catering
to first generation immigrants,most of them poorly educated and in this country
illegally. Richard Alba of the University of Albany’s Mumford Center claims

Obama’s failure – by the numbers

Obama’s failure – by the numbers

Rick
Moran

Jeffrey Anderson at IDB has an
excellent piece breaking down President Obama’s failures by the
numbers.

It has now been a little over two
years – and eight full economic quarters – since the end of the recession Obama
inherited. It’s time to ask: How does his record of economic growth in the wake
of a recession stack up against the records of other
presidents?

[…]

According to the NBER, in the 60
years prior to Obama’s tenure, we had 10 recessions. In the two years following
those respective recessions, average real (inflation-adjusted) quarterly GDP
growth was 5%, according to federal government figures. In the two years of
Obama’s “recovery,” average real quarterly GDP growth has been just 2.4%, less
than half of the historical norm coming out of a recession.

What’s the difference (in more
practical terms) between 2.4% and 5% growth over two years? According to Obama’s
own budget, this year’s GDP will be about $15 trillion. (It’s running neck and
neck with the national debt.) A 2.6% shortfall, therefore, equals about $780
billion over two years.

If you divide that evenly among the
U.S. population of 312 million people, that works out to a shortfall of $2,500
per person – or $10,000 for the average family of four. Call it the Obama
penalty.

Some might argue that the anemic
post-recession growth rate under Obama has resulted from his having inherited a
worse recession than most. There’s little doubt that he inherited a particularly
long (18-month) and significant recession. But the historical record suggests
that, pre-Obama, the general rule was: the worse the recession (or depression),
the better the recovery.

In other words, one would have
expected such a severe downturn to be followed by a particularly strong stretch
of economic growth. That, of course, hasn’t
happened.

To really grasp the titanic failure
of Obama’s policies, the growth numbers are most significant:

Average real quarterly GDP growth in
the two years coming out of those recessions was 6.2%. The 2.4% figure under
Obama has been a mere 39% of that – which, come to think of it, roughly matches
Obama’s current approval rating.

And strikingly, among those six prior
long recessions in the postwar era, even the lowest rate of GDP growth in the
two years to follow was 4.7%. That’s almost double the tally under
Obama.

Awesomely bad. And the most
frightening thing about Obama is that he doesn’t know what to do to fix
it.

Obama’s Employment Plan for Illegal Immigrants

Jan Ting,FloydReports.com

On August 18,President Obama’s Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano
sent a letter to members of Congress announcing the administration’s new immigration policy. The U.S. government
will exercise “prosecutorial discretion”to end deportation proceedings against
illegal immigrants who do not pose a threat to public safety or national
security,which describes the overwhelming majority of illegal immigrants.

According to the Wall Street Journal,“Administration officials said
low-priority cases likely to be shelved include individuals brought to the U.S.
as children by their parents,undocumented spouses of U.S. military personnel,and
immigrants who have no criminal record.”Thus,the administration conflates the
two most sympathetic subsets of illegals with the vast majority of illegal
immigrants who have not been convicted of any serious crime.

The administration has made clear that minor criminal convictions,such as for
motor
vehicle violations
,won’t trigger deportation. The government will not
initiate proceedings against illegal aliens without criminal records who pose no
threat to national security. And the New York Times quotes
administration officials as saying that,“Those who qualify for relief can apply
for permission to work in the United States and will probably receive it.”

The administration is implementing
by executive order
a policy it could
not get Congress to adopt
or even consider:amnesty for the millions of
foreigners who entered the U.S. illegally or who overstayed their temporary
visitor visas in order to work illegally in the U.S.

It is also sending a clear message to people all over the world who would
like to try their luck in the U.S.,though ineligible to do so because of U.S.
immigration law:U.S. immigration law won’t be enforced if all you want to do is
work. Just get yourself into the U.S. by any means,don’t commit serious crimes
or threaten national security,and you will be able to compete with U.S. citizens for jobs. And since you’re willing
to work for lower wages and under worse conditions than U.S. citizens,you can
probably beat them out for a job. So come on in!

Why is President Obama doing this in the midst of an historic recession with
record numbers of American workers unemployed and….

Should Christians Support Obama?

Should Christians

Support Obama?

 

 

This man was on Dr. Charles Stanley’s program “In Touch” as a guest speaker.

 

I almost shouted “HALLELUJAH” when I finished reading. Forward or discard….it’s your choice…but PLEASE read before you do!


Dr. David Barton

 

is more of a historian than a Biblical speaker, but very famous for his knowledge of historical facts as well as Biblical truths.


Dr. David Barton – on Obama

Respect the Office? Yes.

Respect the Man in the Office? No, I am sorry to say.

I have noted that many elected officials, both Democrats and Republicans, called upon America to unite behind Obama.

Well, I want to make it clear to all who will listen that I AM NOT uniting behind Obama !

I will respect the Office, which he holds, and I will acknowledge his abilities as an orator and wordsmith and pray for him, BUT that is it.

I have begun today to see what I can do to make sure that he is a one-term President!

Why am I doing this ?

It is because:

– I do not share Obama’s vision or value system for America ;

– I do not share his Abortion beliefs;

– I do not share his radical Marxist’s concept of re-distributing wealth;

– I do not share his stated views on raising taxes on those who make$150,000+

 

(the ceiling has been changed three times since August);

– I do not share his view that America is Arrogant;

– I do not share his view that America is not a Christian Nation;

– I do not share his view that the military should be reduced by 25%;

– I do not share his view of amnesty and giving more to illegals than our American Citizens who need help;

– I do not share his views on homosexuality and his definition of marriage;

– I do not share his views that Radical Islam is our friend and Israel is our enemy who should give up any land;

– I do not share his spiritual beliefs (at least the ones he has made public);

– I do not share hisbeliefs on how to re-work the healthcare system in America;

– I do not share his Strategic views of the Middle East; and

– I certainly do not share his plan to sit down with terrorist regimes such as Iran.

Bottom line: my America is vastly different from Obama’s, and I have a higher obligation to my Country and my GOD to do what is Right !

For eight (8) years, the Liberals in our Society, led by numerous entertainers who would have no platform and no real credibility but for their celebrity status, have attacked President Bush, his family, and his spiritual beliefs!

They have not moved toward the center in their beliefs and their philosophies, and they never came together nor compromised their personal beliefs for the betterment of our Country!

They have portrayed my America as a land where everything is tolerated except being intolerant !

They have been a vocal and irreverent minority for years !

They have mocked and attacked the very core values so important to the founding and growth of our Country !

They have made every effort to remove the name of GOD or Jesus Christ from our Society !

They have challenged capital punishment, the right to

bear firearms, and the most basic principles of our criminal code !

They have attacked one of the most fundamental of all Freedoms, the right of free speech!

Unite behind Obama? Never!

I am sure many of you who read this think that I am going overboard, but I refuse to retreat one more inch in favor of those whom I believe are the embodiment of Evil!

PRESIDENT BUSH made many mistakes during his Presidency, and I am not sure how history will judge him. However, I believe that he weighed his decisions in light of the long established Judeo-Christian principles of our Founding Fathers!!!

Majority rules in America , and I will honor the concept; however, I will fight with all of my power to be a voice in opposition to Obama and his “goals for America ….”

I am going to be a thorn in the side of those who, if left unchecked, will destroy our Country!Any more compromise is more defeat!

I pray that the results of this election will wake up many who have sat on the sidelines and allowed the Socialist-Marxist anti-GOD crowd to slowly change so much of what has been good inAmerica !

“Error of Opinion may be tolerated where Reason is left free to combat it.” –Thomas Jefferson

GOD bless you and GOD bless our Country!

Obama Gives in to His Fascist Side,Grants Amnesty by Decree

Stephen Dinan,The Washington Times

Bowing
to pressure
from immigrant rights activists,the Obama administration said
Thursday that it will halt
deportation proceedings
on a case-by-case
basis
against illegal
immigrants who meet certain criteria
,such as attending school,having family
in the military or having primary responsible for other family members’
care.

The move marks a major step for President Obama,who for months has said he
does not have to halt deportations and said he must follow the
laws as Congress has written them.

But in letters to Congress on Thursday,

Homeland Security
Secretary Janet Napolitano
said she does have discretion to focus on
“priorities” and that her department and the Justice Department will review all
ongoing cases to see who
meets the new criteria
.

“This case-by-case approach will enhance public safety,” she said.
“Immigration judges will be able to more swiftly adjudicate high-priority
cases,such as those involving convicted felons.”

The move won immediate praise from Hispanic activists and Democrats who had
strenuously argued with the administration that it did have authority to take
these actions,and said as long as Congress is deadlocked on the issue,it was up
to Mr. Obama to act.

“Today’s announcement shows that this president is willing to put muscle
behind his words and to use his power to intervene when the lives of good people
are being ruined by bad laws,” said Rep. Luis V. Gutierrez,Illinois Democrat,who
has taken a leadership role on the issue since the
death of Sen. Edward M. Kennedy
in 2009.

The new rules apply to those who have been apprehended and are in deportation
proceedings,but have not been officially ordered out of the country by a
judge.

Ms. Napolitano said a working group will try to come up with “guidance on how
to provide for appropriate discretionary consideration” for “compelling cases”
in instances where someone already has been ordered deported.

Administration officials made the announcement just before Mr. Obama left for
a long vacation out of Washington,and as members of Congress are back in their
home districts.

The top House Republican on the Judiciary Committee said the move is part of
a White House plan “to grant backdoor amnesty to illegal immigrants.”

“The Obama administration should enforce immigration laws,not look for ways
to ignore them,” said Rep. Lamar Smith,Texas Republican. “The Obama administration
should not pick and choose which laws to enforce. Administration officials
should remember the oath of office they took to uphold the Constitution and the
laws of the land.”

Did Feds Allow a Mexican Drug Cartel to Sell Cocaine in the U.S.?

Diana Washington Valdez,El Paso Times

U.S. federal agents allegedly allowed the Sinaloa drug cartel to traffic
several tons of cocaine into the United States in exchange for information about
rival cartels,according to court documents filed in a U.S. federal court.

The allegations are part of the defense of Vicente Zambada-Niebla,who was
extradited to the United States to face drug-trafficking charges in Chicago. He
is also a top lieutenant of drug kingpin Joaquin “Chapo”Guzman and the son of
Ismael “Mayo”Zambada-Garcia,believed to be the brains behind the Sinaloa
cartel.

The case could prove to be a bombshell on par with the U.S. Bureau of
Alcohol,Tobacco,Firearms and Explosives’“Operation Fast and Furious,”except that
instead of U.S. guns being allowed to walk across the border,the Sinaloa cartel
was allowed to bring drugs into the United States. Zambada-Niebla claims he was
permitted to smuggle drugs from 2004 until his arrest in 2009.

Randall Samborn,assistant U.S. attorney and spokesman for the Justice
Department in Chicago,declined comment.

The court in Chicago had a status hearing on Wednesday and ordered the
government to respond to allegations in Zambada-Niebla’s motion by Sept. 11.

According to the court documents,Mexican lawyer Humberto Loya-Castro,another
high-level Sinaloa cartel leader,had his 1995 U.S. drug-trafficking case
dismissed in 2008 after serving as an informant for 10 years for the U.S.
government.

Guzman and the Zambadas allegedly provided agents of the Drug Enforcement
Administration,FBI and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement with information
about other Mexican drug traffickers through Loya-Castro.

“Loya himself continued his drug trafficking activities with the knowledge of
the United States government without being arrested or prosecuted,”the court
documents state.

Zambada-Niebla met voluntarily with U.S. federal agents on March 17,2009,at
the Sheraton Hotel in Mexico City,which is near the U.S. Embassy,“for the
purpose of his continuing to provide information to the DEA and the U.S.
government personally,rather than through Loya,”court records allege.
