Ferguson; Black Racism Subjugates the Black Community

Those that make a living convincing blacks they are forever subjugated by a racists society, are the very cause of their subjugation. The overriding issue expressed by those of the vocal black community is the system is not doing enough to cater to the frustrated people of color; never mind that catering to a mob is not the job of our criminal justice system. But the frustration is actually caused by the so called activists (or advocates; your choice) that stated from the beginning, that the white police officer Darren Wilson is guilty of killing a black man Michael Brown, who was giving up; and if not he should be tried anyway because he represents past wrongs that the black community has had to endure. It makes no difference that as evidence was released to the public, it was fairly obvious that the original narrative was simply not going to hold up; but by then it really didn't matter. If the black man is not shown to be the victim of a racists officer, then the system is fixed. Further these advocates, intent on their race baiting and keeping the black man feeling forever the victim, continues the narrative that there is no other fair verdict than guilty; or in this case an indictment.

Now there is a call for a federal civil rights investigation and trial; but in order for a for a federal civil rights violation trial, there needs to be a racial component that was ignored in a grand jury or trial; a good example was the Rodney King beating; here race was pervasive with numerous racial epitaphs documented between the officers including their MDT "texting". However there was none in the Trayvon Martin case (even thought NBC perpetrated a fraud by manipulating a 911 tape); and here with the Michael Brown case, while the shooter was a white cop and the victim was a black man, there is no evidence that Martin's race somehow exacerbated the incident, because it clearly didn't.

While you wouldn't know it if you have been listening to the main street media, white racism is only a small percentage of what it was 50 years ago; unfortunately you can't say the same for black racism. The scenario that played out in Ferguson might have well been a scripted reality TV show, and  the scriptwriters are the usual suspects; the black racists, Al Sharpton and Jessie Jackson. 50 years ago some southern Democrats led by LBJ determined to make blacks in the US a Democrat voting block. Their plan was to use the Civil Rights Act to make blacks dependent on government; and hence dependent on the Democrats. They also created the talking point that only the Democrats were "down for the black cause", while any one that argued against this black subjugation were white racists. Today, black racism is so prevalent is almost goes unnoticed. If there is an altercation between a black man and a white man, especially a white police officer, that of course the police officer is guilty of racism; but not necessarily because of the facts of the case, but because of race.Yet this is not viewed as racism, it is viewed as pay back. But this kind of pay back only makes sense where the rule of law does not apply. In this environment, to describe the attack by Michael Brown on Officer Darren Wilson that precipitated the shooting, is to demonize Michael Brown. To suggest that Michael Brown's own actions led to the shooting,  is sacrilege to the black racist world view (much as the killing of a white by a black could have no justification to a white supremest).

In the final analysis, as is usual with most these tragedies, it was Michael Brown that was in charge of how this incident was going to play out; he could have complied with the officers commands or, having multiple chances, he could have run away; but Michael Brown choose not to do either and he all know the result. But Michael Brown is simply a product of his environment. And his environment has been shaped by 50 years of being told that in racist America, they will never be successful. But by somehow putting their faith in race-baiting advocates and Democrats, that their lives will become better; and it never does. When the lack of a finding in the Darren Wilson Grand Jury was announced, there were the expected riots where blacks burned and looted their own community, victimizing themselves and those that ignored the status quo and started businesses. And until blacks decide that they have been feed a lie, that the system usually works and hard work will reap rewards, that they have been giving their vote to those that have done nothing to improve their standard of living, there   little doubt the will continue to reside it what has been called a Democrat run "majority-black suburban plantation".

President Obama Does Not Have the Authority to Ignore Immigration Law;

 To believe the President Obama has the authority to ignore Immigration law via prosecutional discretion, is to believe that  prosecutional discretion trumps the Constitution Article II's, Take Care Clause, which requires that the President "shall take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed."

Prosecutional discretion is not an absolute privilege. To believe the President Obama has the authority to ignore Immigration law via prosecutional discretion, is to believe that  prosecutional discretion trumps the Constitution Article II's, Take Care Clause, which requires that the President "shall take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed."
There's no logical stopping point to the prosecutorial justification underlying President Obama's immigration policies. Presidents could simply decide not to enforce entire sections of the Clean Air Act, tax code or labor laws, or exempt entire categories of people — defined unilaterally by the president — on the assertion that those laws are "unfair" and there aren't enough resources to go around. The president would have power to grant a "privilege" or exemption from any federal law, defying the plain language those laws and the will of the people's Congress. Constitutional Limits to Prosecutorial Discretion

The projected executive action (EA) by President Obama, if signed, will be doing the illegal immigrants all ready in this country a great disservice. In previous cases President Regan and Bush used an EA  that addressed omissions in existing immigration legislation, that did not cover the children of illegal aliens that were allowed to stay in the country to pursue legal status. In other words the EA addressed issue in an existing law and unlike President Obama's EA, did not create a new law, which is unconstitutional. The EA also does not carry with it the same authority of a law voted in by Congress and signed by the President; this EA will simply be a directions to Homeland Security (via prosecutional discretion) to stop deportations of illegal immigrants already in the country, but prosecutional discretion does not legalize a violation of the law, it simply says in this specific case justice is otherwise served by not prosecuting a law breaker. This means that Obama's projected order does not change the fact that the illegal immigrants in the US will still be violating the law; so this security blanket could quickly be pulled out from under these same immigrants by a court order or the whim of the next President.  In this case illegal immigrants will continue to live in the shadows not knowing what is going to happen to them as there is no law behind the President EA.

Consider the President has already shorted ICE with the money and agents necessary for deportations. President Obama’s budget would rewrite the federal government’s interior immigration enforcement priorities, cutting funding for states that try to help enforce immigration laws and scaling back the number of immigrants the federal government will detain while they await deportation. He sent the proposal to Capitol Hill on Wednesday, at a time when congressional lawmakers are trying to write a broad immigration bill to bolster border security and interior enforcement, and to screen millions of illegal immigrants who could gain legal status under the legislation. All of that will cost money, but Mr. Obama’s budget cuts overall funding for the Homeland Security Department. It particularly trims interior enforcement initiatives, such as the State Criminal Alien Assistance Program, which has widespread support among members of Congress...Ms. Napolitano’s budget boosts spending by $1.1 billion for U.S. Customs and Border Protection, which includes the Border Patrol and officers who watch the ports of entry. But it reduces by nearly $650 million, or 11 percent, funds for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, which handles interior investigations and deportations. Obamas Budget a Blow to Immigration Enforcers

There is also the effect the President's EA will have on blacks and other minorities. "As immigrants disproportionately increased the supply of workers in a particular skill group, the wage of black workers in that group fell, the employment rate declined, and the incarceration rate rose. Our analysis suggests that a 10-percent immigrant-induced increase in the supply of a particular skill group reduced the black wage by 4.0 percent, lowered the employment rate of black men by 3.5 percentage points, and increased the incarceration rate of blacks by almost a full percentage point." Blacks Hit Hard by Increased Immigration 

Another issue not being reported on is how President Obama's Executive Amnesty will continue the  victimization of illegal aliens.  Since the majority of Americans are already against amnesty without even experiencing the inevitable hardships it will cause, the left will again allow the focus of their unpopular agenda to be scapegoated. When one considers that Americans have yet to feel the full effect of ObamaCare, which has never been popular to begin with, the Presidents actions now will likely guarantee the next president will have to run on revoking both the President Obama's EA on immigration and ObamaCare as well.  And of course that doesn't even consider the likelihood that once Obama's  Executive Amnesty is in place, he will announce another EA to give healthcare to the illegal aliens in the country, now protected from deportation. Whatever happens there will surely be a collective sigh of relief (that has not been heard since Woodrow Wilson's time) once this lame duck President is finally gone.

Obama's Same Old Climate Game With the Chinese

Is the President Obama's climate change agreement really a game changer?  Well I guess that depends on how you define the current game we are playing with the Chinese and what new game we are  now supposed to play. China has agreed to set a target of reaching a peak in its carbon emissions by 2030; what is going to happen after that is vague and it's also non binding. The US-China climate change deal is terrible On the other hand, The President Obama has offered up for the US pretty much the same plan he committed to after the Copenhagen Climate Change Summit in 2009; to reduce carbon emissions in the US  17% below 2005 levels by 2020, 42% below 2005 levels by 2030 Climate change policy of the United States his new deal with the Chinese the President would cut  US carbon admissions between 26 and 28 percent below 2005 levels by 2025. So it seems all the President has accomplished, is to give the Chinese (already the top carbon polluter) permission to build dirty coal fired power plants to their hearts content for the next 15 years , while the President continues to play his 2009 carbon emissions reduction plan game, which includes closing down clean coal power plants  ("Under my plan of a cap-and-trade system, electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket,") here at home. Obama said energy costs will skyrocket with his cap and trade Sounds like President Obama's same old game to me.
