Former FBI Official: Obama’s Ferguson Statements ‘Have Only Served to Divide’


(CNSNews.com) – Ron Hosko, former assistant director of the FBI’s Criminal Investigative Division and current president of the Law Enforcement Legal Defense Fund, said remarks by President Barack Obama and some other federal leaders about the shooting of Michael Brown and the grand jury’s non-indictment of police officer Darren Wilson “have only served to divide.”

“The president, the attorney general and many others who presume to be speaking for them have put a rush to judgment ahead of a need to determine, and base words and actions on, the facts,” Hosko said in a statement released Monday evening.

“While the legal system has exonerated Officer Darren Wilson for his split-second decision on that August afternoon, he very much remains a victim of a politicized agenda that deemed him ‘guilty until proven innocent,’” Hosko said, adding that Wilson was “exploited in a cynical effort to turn civilians against cops in fulfillment of an anti-law enforcement agenda.”

“The long-term effects of the politicization of this case are chilling.  Statements by people in power, people the citizens should trust and respect, have only served to divide,” Hosko continued.

“Opportunists, knowing, first-hand, absolutely nothing that happened on that Ferguson street on August 9th, have done what many would expect them to do — find some personal advantage in a crisis.”

In the aftermath of Brown’s death, Eric Holder visited Ferguson and spoke to an outraged crowd in Ferguson, telling them, “I am the attorney general of the United States — but I am also a black man.”

“I can remember being stopped on the New Jersey turnpike on two occasions and accused of speeding. Pulled over…. ‘Let me search your car.’ … Go through the trunk of my car, look under the seats and all this kind of stuff. I remember how humiliating that was and how angry I was and the impact it had on me,” he said.

“But it can’t simply be that we have a conversation that begins based on what happens on Aug. 9, and ends sometime in December, and nothing happens,” he continued. “As I was just telling these young people, change is possible. The same kid who got stopped on the New Jersey freeway is now the attorney general of the United States. This country is capable of change. But change doesn’t happen by itself.”

President Obama also publicly addressed Brown’s death, saying in October that “the anger and the emotion that followed [Brown’s] death awakened our nation once again to the reality that people in this room have long understood, which is, in too many communities around the country, a gulf of mistrust exists between local residents and law enforcement,” adding that “we have to close the justice gap — how justice is applied, but also how it is perceived, how it is experienced.”

Obama also sent three White House aides to Brown’s funeral.

Hosko warned this kind of divisive rhetoric will only further the gulf between law enforcement officials and those they are supposed to protect.

“Contempt of law enforcement will do little to heal Ferguson or the rift it has highlighted in our country. Likewise, contempt by law enforcement officers for the people they are sworn to serve and protect is myopic and counterproductive,” Hosko said.

“Although it’s clear that some who have weighed in on this case are incapable of meaningful introspection or concern about the damage they leave in their wake, we hope some true leaders emerge from these events, that voices on each side of the ongoing debate on policing can be heard and understood by the other side, and that some tangible, productive results follow,” he said.

After weeks of speculation and waiting, the grand jury’s decision on Monday was immediately met with protests, violence and riots throughout Ferguson and other parts of St. Louis, as well as solidarity protests in other cities across the country.

In Ferguson, dozens of businesses were damaged, looted and/or torched in the ensuing chaos. In Ferguson, 61 protesters were arrested along with another 21 in St. Louis, the Los Angeles Times reported Tuesday.

Police dressed in riot gear withstood hostility from crowds hurling insults and throwing objects, and at least three police cars were lit on fire as looters broke into and vandalized shops throughout the St. Louis suburb.

The Federal Aviation Administration stated that at one point planes flying into St. Louis were diverted out of fear of gunshots being fired into the air.

Hagel was Fired for Blocking Obama’s Plan to Close Gitmo

Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is a New York writer focusing on radical Islam. He is completing a book on the international challenges America faces in the 21st century.

ObamaTalibanTruck

At least that’s what the latest White House leaks seem to be saying. They also credit Susan Rice, an official who shouldn’t even have a job, with engineering his firing.

 

In the view of White House officials, Mr. Hagel has helped to thwart Mr. Obama’s pledge to close Guantánamo with his concerns about the security risks posed by the release of detainees. He recently pulled back from plans to repatriate four Afghans who had been approved for transfer, a decision that annoyed Ms. Rice, officials said.

White House officials also expressed annoyance over a sharply critical two-page memo that Mr. Hagel sent to Ms. Rice last month, in which he warned that the administration’s Syria policy was in danger of unraveling because of its failure to clarify its intentions toward President Bashar al-Assad.

So the most anti-war Republican was still too hawkish for Obama. That really says something.

No one would have accused Hagel of being a hawk, but apparently he tried to do responsible things like oppose releasing terrorists who are bound to attack Americans again.

That “annoyed” Susan Rice and her protector in the Oval Office who is still bitter that he couldn’t make Rice Secretary of State. So wait till Kerry finds himself standing next to Obama.

But as the president spoke of the “blood and treasure and sacrifices” of enlisted men and women like Mr. Hagel, turning several times to try to address his defense secretary directly, Mr. Hagel stared ahead fixedly, declining to make eye contact with Mr. Obama.

Still better than Stalin’s retirement plan. Meanwhile Ted Cruz trolled Obama.

Senator Ted Cruz, Republican of Texas, suggested the administration consider former Senator Joseph I. Lieberman of Connecticut, urging the president to give “full and fair consideration for this critical position.”

But Mr. Lieberman’s views on national security echo those of Senator John McCain, who is sharply critical of Mr. Obama, and he would probably be viewed as far too conservative by the White House.

You don’t say. I doubt Lieberman wants the job or would be seriously considered for it, but Cruz has managed to remind everyone that a moderate Democrat and vice presidential candidate became too right-wing when Obama and Pelosi tilted the party far to the left.

 
 

Firms have $3,000 incentive for hiring illegals under Obama amnesty

Obamacare can wait

Uses Obamacare fee to advance amnesty plan

– The Washington Times – Updated: 8:14 p.m. on Tuesday, November 25, 2014

Under the president’s new amnesty, businesses will have a $3,000-per-employee incentive to hire illegal immigrants over native-born workers because of a quirk of Obamacare.

President Obama’s temporary amnesty, which lasts three years, declares up to 5 million illegal immigrants to be lawfully in the country and eligible for work permits, but it still deems them ineligible for public benefits such as buying insurance on Obamacare’s health exchanges.

But under the Affordable Care Act, that means businesses who hire them won’t have to pay a penalty for not providing them health coverage — making them $3,000 more attractive than a similar native-born worker, whom the business by law would have to cover.

The loophole was confirmed by congressional aides, and drew condemnation from those who said it put illegal immigrants ahead of Americans in the job market.

“If it is true that the president’s actions give employers a $3,000 incentive to hire those who came here illegally, he has added insult to injury,” said Rep. Lamar Smith, Texas Republican. “The president’s actions would have just moved those who came here illegally to the front of the line, ahead of unemployed and under-employed Americans.”

A Department of Homeland Security official confirmed that the newly legalized immigrants won’t have access to Obamacare, which opens up the loophole for employers looking to avoid the penalty.

The Health and Human Services Department, which oversees Obamacare, referred questions to the White House, which didn’t reply to a request for comment.

But Mr. Obama, traveling in Chicago on Tuesday to defend his immigration plans, said his moves would boost the economy and vowed they wouldn’t hurt American workers’ wages.

“Immigrants are good for the economy. We keep on hearing that they’re bad, but a report by my Council of Economic Advisers, put out last week, shows how the actions we’re taking will grow our economy for everybody,” he said.

This isn’t the first time the Obamacare loophole has popped up on immigration. The overhaul bill that passed the Senate on a bipartisan vote last year created the same situation, granting illegal immigrants a long probationary period where they could legally work but weren’t eligible for public benefits such as Obamacare.

At the time, Arizona Sen. John McCain, one of the bill’s GOP authors, acknowledged the problem and vowed to change it before it became law. Despite passing the Senate, the bill has stalled, with Democratic leaders refusing to send it to the House for further action.

Brian Rogers, a spokesman for Mr. McCain, said Tuesday the solution to the loophole is to get rid of Obamacare’s employer mandate, “which would eliminate the incentive to hire people who are ineligible for Obamacare subsidies.” Mr. Rogers said the Republican majority that takes control of Congress next year should vote on that proposal.

Under Obamacare, businesses with 50 or more employees are supposed to provide insurance coverage to their full-time workers. If they refuse, they are assessed a penalty for every employee who receives subsidies to sign up for coverage on the health exchanges. But because the newly legalized illegal immigrants covered by Mr. Obama’s order can’t sign up for the exchanges or receive subsidies, employers aren’t penalized for hiring them.

Employers take notice

Some employers have already taken notice, including one man who called into political strategist Dick Morris’s radio show in Philadelphia over the weekend and said he’s talked with his lawyers and plans to use the loophole as a way to reduce his Obamacare costs.

“The dimensions of this problem are enormous. One wonders if any of Obama’s crew spotted it during the run-up to his executive order. It is hard to imagine former President Clinton failing to notice such a conflict between his two major programs,” Mr. Morris said in an op-ed Tuesday in the Hill, a Capitol Hill newspaper.

The Obama administration has delayed the employer mandate penalty for some businesses, but it is slated to take full effect in a year.

The public is split on Mr. Obama’s latest immigration move. A new Quinnipiac University poll released Tuesday showed slightly more people opposed the president taking unilateral action than supported him.

Just as striking, however, is that overall support for illegal immigrants in America is at an all-time low in the Quinnipiac survey, with 35 percent now saying they should all be pushed out of the country — up from 26 percent just a year ago.

Mr. Obama created the Obamacare loophole incentive in a 2012 Homeland Security decision.

Until August of that year, those granted “deferred action” — the power Mr. Obama also used in his new temporary amnesty — were eligible for public benefits including Obamacare. But just two months earlier, Mr. Obama had announced a massive expansion of deferred action for hundreds of thousands of “Dreamers,” or young illegal immigrants brought to the U.S. as children, and in order to prevent them from getting public benefits Homeland Security officials issued a new policy giving the Dreamers a new category of legal status that left them outside of Obamacare.

Immigrant-rights groups protested the move at the time, arguing it left the newly legal Dreamers without coverage. The National Immigration Law Center said it excluding Dreamers from Obamacare amounted to discrimination against tax-paying immigrants who are following the rules, and set up a new second-class status for some immigrants.

The NILC didn’t respond to a request for comment on Mr. Obama’s latest move.

I think the federal government should license a couple (whatever sex or breed) with a Civil Matrimony Certificate; and state governments can get out of the business of marriage.  Churches can hold ceremony’s where they recognized unions under God as a marriage between a man and a woman in accordance with the Holy Bible.

EBOLA: OBAMA ACCUSED OF ‘FACILITATING TERRORISM’

Malicious Logic (Trojan horse, virus, worm): keeping the US border open in spite of Ebola, EV-D68, or other pandemic disease carriers and ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and Syria) enemy (already four were found trying to cross the southern border), from entering the country in large numbers. Why? Obama and company want to prove to the unknowing that: a) Obamacare is useful; b) we need to legalize illegals entering the US; c) to grow the Democrat Party; and d) further advance progressive ideology. Jimmy Minnish

(by Bob Unruh, WND) — Larry Klayman, the former Justice Department lawyer and founder of Judicial Watch and Freedom Watch, has filed a civil complaint accusing President Obama and other officials of “facilitating terrorism” by refusing to cut off travel from Africa’s Ebola zones to the U.S.

The complaint filed in federal court in Washington charges Obama and his administration are “knowingly and willfully providing material support and aid to international terrorism and facilitating terrorism by allowing unrestricted entry of persons from countries experiencing outbreaks of the Ebola virus and adamantly opposing efforts, including calls from the U.S. Congress, to restrict travel from outbreak countries.”

The complaint from Klayman, who recently filed legal paperwork to try to get Obama deported, names Obama; Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease; Tom Frieden, director of the Centers for Disease Control; Health and Human Services Secretary Sylvia Burwell; and Jeh Johnson, director of the Department of Homeland Security.

Klayman, a longtime foe of the Washington establishment, says the defendants “know or should know … that the probable consequences of their actions are to facilitate the spread of the disease and to provide opportunities for germ warfare terrorism.”

He cites Obama’s criticism from the Senate floor in 2005 of President Bush for his handling of the avian flu.

Obama said the “failure to prepare for emergencies can have devastating consequences.”

“We learned that lesson the hard way after Hurricane Katrina,” the then-senator told his colleagues. “This nation must not be caught off-guard when faced with the prospect of an avian flu pandemic. The consequences are too high. … The question is will we be ready when that happens? Let’s make sure that answer is yes. I urge my colleagues in the Senate and the House to push this administration to take the action needed to prevent a catastrophe that we have not seen during our lifetimes.”

The complaint asks for a jury trial and compensatory and actual damages of at least $75,000, fees and other compensation, as well as an injunction banning travel to the U.S. from infected “African, Muslim and other nations.”

Klayman charges the Obama administration has enacted “ineffective so-called screening” procedures at a handful of American airports.

He calls it “a reckless plan to open the door not just to defendant Obama’s infected fellow Africans, but also American Muslim ISIS suicide terrorists who would intentionally infect themselves with the deadly disease and thus spread it widely in the United States.”

A Liberian infected with Ebola who traveled from his home country to Texas last month died Oct. 8, and a nurse at a Dallas hospital who attended him now has been diagnosed with the disease.

Klayman would have standing to sue, the complaint argues, because he recently traveled through Newark, a major entry point to the U.S., and was in a position to have been exposed to Ebola from travelers.

The highly contagious and deadly disease has killed more than 4,000 in West Africa. However, Obama has refused to impose travel restrictions. Instead, travelers are being questioned and checked for fever and other symptoms at five major international airports in the U.S.

Klayman blames Obama and the others “for in effect furthering acts of terrorism.”

His complaint says it is not questioned that Ebola “presents a severe risk,” but “defendants’ actions are an open invitation for terrorists to acquire infections of Ebola and travel to the United States to intentionally spread the disease inside ‘the Great Satan,’ including in ‘soft targets’ such as restaurants, shopping malls, and other public and private places.”

Rep. Duncan Hunter, R-Calif., claimed in a Fox News interview last week the U.S. Border Patrol caught 10 ISIS fighters coming into the U.S. from Mexico, suggesting it’s possible for Ebola infections to enter the country through that route.

Also, a U.S. outbreak would lead to “severe disruption” in America’s economy and society, he says.

The causes of action cited include aiding and abetting the murder of U.S. citizens, conspiracy to commit murder, provision of material support to terrorists, a Fifth Amendment violation, assault and infliction of emotional distress.

A week ago, Klayman, who has sued the National Security Agency, Barack Obama over his birth certificate, Hugo Chavez on behalf of torture victims, journalists, Taliban and al-Qaida and more, launched legal action to get Obama deported.

The deportation petition, Klayman explained, is based “on the grounds that [Obama] has falsified various birth and other documents with regard to obtaining a U.S. passport and other privileges as an alleged American citizen.”

Federal appeals court reinstates voter ID law

 

By Tim Eaton

American-Statesman Staff

A federal appeals court put the state’s voter identification law back into effect on Tuesday afternoon.

A three-judge panel of the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals granted a request by Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott for a stay on the judgment of U.S. District Judge Nelva Gonzales Ramos of Corpus Christi. The appeals court’s action revives the law as early voting is set to begin Monday. Election Day is Nov. 4.

The GOP-dominated Legislature passed the law in 2011 and it was put into effect last year.

One of the strictest voter ID laws in the country, the Texas statute requires voters to show one of seven forms of photographic ID at polling stations.

Initially, the law was barred from going into effect because it had not received the needed federal approval that was required for Texas and other states and jurisdictions with histories of discrimination. But in June 2013, the U.S. Supreme Court gutted the provision of the Voting Rights Act of 1965 that called for the federal approval process.

Consequently, a group of civil rights groups — which were later joined by the U.S. Department of Justice — sued the state of Texas to block the voter ID law. They claimed it was discriminatory and would disproportionately affect minority voters.

U.S. District Court Judge Nelva Gonzales Ramos of Corpus Christi, who presided over the case, ruled in favor of the plaintiffs and halted the law last week.

The ruling prompted Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott, whose office defended the law, to ask the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for quick consideration and to allow the law to go into effect before of a full appeal.

And with the appeals court ruling on Tuesday, the law is back in effect.

The plaintiffs in the case can appeal the stay to the U.S. Supreme Court.
