 Obama Has Declared Amnesty For Illegal Aliens by Executive Fiat

by Sammy
A year ago, we reported that Obama was working on a way to grant amnesty for illegal immigrants by executive fiat. The ICE union has released an internal memo proving that prediction true. The Obama administration is quietly offering a de facto amnesty for hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants, an obvious ploy to win reelection by mobilizing a wave of new Hispanic voters.
The new rules were announced Friday with a new memo from top officials at the US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency. The policy outlines a policy which seems to mirror the Dream Act which has been rejected by the congress as recently as last year. The memo calls for “prosecutorial discretion” and says officials need not enforce immigration laws if illegal immigrants are enrolled in an education center or if their relatives have volunteered for the US military.

French giving up on wine?


Are the French Becoming Bored With Wine?

ScienceDaily (June 24, 2011) — One of the most familiar aspects of French culture -- its love of wine -- might be lost as successive generations abandon the imaginative representations of wine linked to national identity, according to a study in the International Journal of Entrepreneurship and Small Business. The findings suggest that the transmission of French wine heritage to future generations is in terminal decline.


Consumption of wine in France is on the wane. It has fallen from the equivalent of almost 7 billion 75-cl bottles in 1980 to around 4 billion in 2008; not much more than one bottle a week per adult. The downward trend seems to be continuing with recent data predicting that just 16.5% of the adult population are now regular wine consumers.

Peru's new highway to the future

The Interoceanic Highway, which will connect Peru's Pacific coast to the shores of the Atlantic in Brazil, could revolutionize the region much as the transcontinental railroad did in the US in 1869.

A twisting road leads to Marcapata, a village on Peru’s Interoceanic Highway. The highway, set to be completed in the coming weeks, will cut across Brazil and Peru to connect the Atlantic and Pacific coasts.

Helene - up close

The Gaffe Master


Big Media doesn’t pay much attention to them, even though Obama makes an amazing number of errors in his public statements.  And I think it’s easy enough to understand why the BM largely ignores them:  to report them all would totally undermine the image of the president to which a surprising number of “reporters” and pundits are wedded:  that of an unusually intelligent and well educated man.
Yet someone who tells a crowd in Vienna that his “Austrian” isn’t very good, who tells Marines that he’s pleased to speak to the “Marine Corpse,” and who, just today, said he’d given the Medal of Honor to a survivor from the 10th Mountain Division, when in fact the award was given posthumously, doesn’t fit my definition of a brilliant and cultured man.

What the Dems have done.

Recovery Bummer: “On economic growth, real GDP has risen 0.8% over the 13 quarters since the recession began, compared to an average increase of 9.9% in past recoveries.”

Ouch!

Like Chauncey Gardiner, Obama is profoundly aloof

AP Photo/Pablo Martinez Monsivais
A silhouetted President Barack Obama walks back to the Oval Office of the White House in Washington, Friday, June, 24, 2011, following his arrival on Marine One helicopter.
Which past leader does Barack Obama most closely resemble? His admirers, not all of them liberals, used to compare him with Abraham Lincoln and Franklin Roosevelt.
Well, Obama announced his candidacy in Lincoln's hometown two days before Abe's birthday, and he did expand the size and scope of government. But no one seriously compares him with Lincoln or FDR any more.
Conservative critics have taken to comparing him, as you might imagine, with Jimmy Carter. The more cruel among them, like the Weekly Standard's Jay Cost, say the comparison is not to Obama's advantage.
But there is another comparison I think more appropriate for a president who, according to one of his foreign-policy staffers, prefers to "lead from behind." The man I have in mind is Chauncey Gardiner, the character played by Peter Sellers in the 1979 movie "Being There."
As you may remember, Gardiner is a clueless gardener who is mistaken for a Washington eminence and becomes a presidential adviser. Asked if you can stimulate growth through temporary incentives, Gardiner says, "As long as the roots are not severed, all is well and all will be well in the garden." "First comes the spring and summer," he explains, "but then we have fall and winter. And then we get spring and summer again." The president is awed as Gardiner sums up, "There will be growth in the spring."
Kind of reminds you of Obama's approach to the federal budget, doesn't it?
