DOJ Releases Letter From 10 Pro-Obama Legal Scholars Defending His Immigration Edict

Nov 22, 2014 3:48 PM PT

The Department of Justice released a letter earlier this week from 10 legal scholars at colleges across the country defending the president's controversial executive action on immigration.

The scholars - the letter is careful to point out - don't always see eye-to-eye on presidential power and immigration policy, but as far as the president's immigration edict goes, they “are all of the view that these actions are lawful.”  Which is pretty impressive when you think about it; ten legal scholars from various backgrounds - and they all support Obama's imperial immigration edict!

Surprise, 30,000 Lois Lerner IRS Emails Discovered Late Friday Afternoon

Nov 22, 2014 1:23 PM PT

If a Friday afternoon when the GOP is suing the administration over the Affordable Care Act, while still scrambling internally to formulate an official response to last night's announced amnesty for five million illegal immigrants, isn't the best time to suddenly discover 30,000 Lois Lerner emails once pronounced lost forever, it's difficult to think of a better one if one's intention is to minimize the news.

Up to 30,000 missing emails sent by former Internal Revenue Service official Lois Lerner have been recovered by the IRS inspector general, five months after they were deemed lost forever.

The U.S. Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) informed congressional staffers from several committees on Friday that the emails were found among hundreds of “disaster recovery tapes” that were used to back up the IRS email system.

“They just said it took them several weeks and some forensic effort to get these emails off these tapes,” a congressional aide told the Washington Examiner.

Obama: Don't Use Ferguson Verdict as an Excuse for Violence

Nov 22, 2014 9:08 AM PT

Following up on sentiments first reported by the New York Times some days ago,  today Obama used an interview with ABC's George Stephanopoulos  to urge those protesting over an anticipated grand jury verdict in the death of Michael Brown of Ferguson , Missouri, to keep the peace.

“This is a country that allows everybody to express their views. Allows them to peacefully assemble, to protest actions that they think are unjust. But using any event as an excuse for violence is contrary to rule of law and contrary to who we are,” Obama told ABC News chief anchor George Stephanopoulos during an interview conducted today in Las Vegas.

5 Truths About Immigration Reform

Nov 21, 2014 8:27 AM PT

In declaring his executive amnesty on Thursday evening, President Barack Obama made the case for seizing what he once described as imperial powers. He said he had been compelled to do so because of the "broken" state of the country's immigration system. In so doing, Obama obscured five truths about immigration reform.

1. The country wants border security first. In ten years of debate about immigration reform, and three decades of experience, two limits have been identified. One is that Americans will not tolerate the deportation of families. The other is that Americans want border security before new benefits are given to illegal aliens. Putting reform and security in one "comprehensive" bill does not work. Security first; reform separately, and later.

During my latest appearance on NewsmaxTV, we discussed how "Warren" Democrats had a big day, yet the rest of the Democrats didn't. Ben Wikler from Moveon.org tries to spin that liberal stalwart Senator Elizabeth Warren faired well on election night.
