ALG's Daily Grind - Is Obama lying about why we withdrew from Iraq?

Is Obama lying about why we withdrew from Iraq?
Host nations like Japan, South Korea, and Germany retain local jurisdiction over criminal matters of off-duty, off-base U.S. military personnel. So, why was this a sticking point for Obama when the administration failed to renew the Iraq status of forces agreement in 2011?

NRSC - VIDEO: Latest Example of Democrats' Stunning Lack of Awareness 

WASHINGTON, D.C. - A new web video was released today to coincide with Barack Obama and Harry Reid's luxurious fundraiser for Democratic Senate candidates in Martha's Vineyard. The Democratic event takes place in the midst of escalating military tension, airstrikes, and political turmoil in Iraq as well as a time of domestic and international unrest and crisis. 

At a time when America faces one crisis after another, the Obama Administration and Senate Democrats have proven to be inept at their job, instead prioritizing fundraisers at multimillion-dollar vacation homes and yachts in Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket in lieu of their constituents. Their gross incompetence reveals a stunning lack of awareness that leaves independent voters shaking their heads. 

President Obama and Harry Reid are hardly alone. Candidates from Bruce Braley (D-IA) to Mark Begich (D-AK), Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) to Mark Udall (D-CO) have put a priority on raising cash for their own struggling campaigns instead of their official duties.  The Martha's Vineyard fundraiser today should be cancelled, or at least delayed, and a priority put on the issues at hand.

"Bruce Braley misses veterans' hearings to raise cash, Jeanne Shaheen skips out on her official duties to raise cash, and Mark Begich gets caught secretly raising cash in Hawaii instead of focusing on unemployment; it's all part of a larger pattern of incompetence,said NRSC Press Secretary Brook Hougesen. "President Obama and Senate Democratic candidates should cancel or at the very least postpone tonight's luxurious Martha's Vineyard fundraiser, but if history is our guide, they will continue to abandon their official responsibilities to save their precious Senate majority."

Guinta For Congress (CD1) - Shea-Porter Clings to Obamanomics as Numbers Continue to Fall Short

A recently released report concludes that the U.S. economy would need to add 5.7 million jobs simply to reach pre-recession employment levels. When taking into account population growth and natural changes in the labor market, the United States remains far short of pre-recession employment levels.

At the current rate, the United States would reach pre-recession levels by June of 2018.

Frank Guinta released the following statement:

“Congresswoman Shea-Porter continues to grasp at any sign of economic life, but the simple fact remains that Obamanomics has failed. The stunning refusal to replace ObamaCare with reforms that work, remove the barriers to small business growth, and limit Washington spending is crushing our economy. Only when Washington removes itself from the equation, and places trust in you will our economy recover. As we move forward with our Middle-Class Economic Recovery Tour we will continue to offer solutions to put Granite Staters back to work."

ALG - Border supplemental fails to stop Obama executive amnesty 

6

August 1, 2014, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Nathan Mehrens today issued the following statement urging rejection of H.R. 5230 as modified, the $694 million border supplemental that does not include the riders necessary to block more executive actions from the Obama administration to grant amnesty: 

"House leadership is once again pushing its border supplemental through without including the necessary riders that will stop the White House from taking more arbitrary executive actions that might suspend deportations, grant legal status to millions presently here illegally, excuse visa overstays, or even grant refugee status. This is a missed opportunity to fully deal with the problems on the border and in our local communities.  And fails to address the root cause of the current crisis: Obama's flagrant disregard for the rule of law."

ALG's Daily Grind - Will Obama grant refugee status to millions of illegal immigrants?

July 31, 2014

Permission to republish original opeds and cartoons granted.

Is Obama planning on granting refugee status to millions of illegal immigrants?
Refugee resettlement laws were never intended to help illegal immigrants who are poor or unemployed, it was supposed to assist those fleeing religious or political or racial persecution. But would that stop Obama?

Testimony on EPA's proposed rules for existing power plants — Atlanta, Georgia
The passion of environmentalist commenters supersedes their knowledge as none of the major proposed EPA regulations are solutions to issues caused by carbon dioxide—a clear, colorless gas that each of us breathe out and plants breathe in.
