Here is the full statement from Boehner on the Select Committee:

“Americans learned this week that the Obama Administration is so intent on obstructing the truth about Benghazi that it is even willing to defy subpoenas issued by the standing committees of the People’s House. These revelations compel the House to take every possible action to ensure the American people have the truth about the terrorist attack on our consulate that killed four of our countrymen. In light of these new developments, the House will vote to establish a new select committee to investigate the attack, provide the necessary accountability, and ensure justice is finally served.

“The administration’s withholding of documents – emails showing greater White House involvement in misleading the American people – is a flagrant violation of trust and undermines the basic principles of oversight upon which our system of government is built. And it forces us to ask the question, what else about Benghazi is the Obama administration still hiding from the American people?

“The House committees that have been investigating this attack have done extraordinary work, using their subpoena power, holding dozens of hearings, and conducting hundreds of interviews. Without this work we would not know much that we do today. But it’s clear that questions remain, and the administration still does not respect the authority of Congress to provide proper oversight. This dismissiveness and evasion requires us to elevate the investigation to a new level. I intend for this select committee to have robust authority, and I will expect it to work quickly to get answers for the American people and the families of the victims.

“Four Americans died at the hands of terrorists nearly 20 months ago, and we are still missing answers, accountability, and justice. It’s time that change.”

President Asshat Nominates Cop-Killer Advocate To Head DOJ Civil Rights Division

Obama Continues To Display His Ultra-Liberal Roots And Ideology: Nominates Cop Killer Advocate To Head DOJ Civil Rights Division – Downtrend

.

.
Make no mistake about it folks, our wonderful community organizer in chief is very far to the left of center in his political views and ideology. In fact, I really doubt that very many people realize just how much of a radical Obama really is in his personal beliefs. If you doubt this, perhaps his new nomination will change your mind on this score.

Obama has just nominated an man who has tirelessly advocated for the release of convicted cop killer Mumia Abu-Jamal. The incident in question occurred back in 1982, when the former Black Panther shot and killed Philadelphia Police Officer Daniel Faulkner as he tried to arrest Abu-Jamal’s brother during a traffic stop. Mumia shot the officer once in the back and then reportedly stood over him and shot four more times including once directly in the face.

Abu-Jamal also never even denied the killing during his trial. Both he and his supporters are unapologetic about the death of Officer Faulkner, thinking that they were fully justified in this situation. As far as whether or not he is guilty, there are a number of eyewitnesses present at the scene. Not to mention the fact that even his brother did not testify to his innocence and Abu-Jamal chose not to testify in his own defense. It has also been widely reported that Abu-Jamal confessed the killing to several hospital workers, both of which testified affirmatively at the trial. He reportedly said that he killed the officer and that he hoped he dies.

Guess what? One of the people who has been an unapologetic supporter of Mr. Mumia throughout all these years is former NAACP Legal Defense Official Debo P Adegbile. He has worked tirelessly to free Mumia from prison, thankfully unsuccessfully.

Now, our community organizer in chief has once again demonstrated what truly ultra-Liberal and left wing ties and beliefs he really has by nominating Adegbile to head the Department of Justice Civil Rights Division as an assistant attorney general. He is looking to replace another radical, Tom Perez, who has now moved on to become the Secretary of Labor. What a team of colorful characters King Obama has included in his Regime. It is like all of the ultra-left radicals and rebels from the 70′s and early 80′s are now coming home to roost and actually taking over the system!

Certainly we can guess at the motivation of Obama for making such a move right now. This famous liberal and cop-killer advocate will undoubtedly continue to carry out the radical racial agenda already begun by Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder. Of course, this time he will be doing it from inside the system, with the force of the law behind him. That might be the scariest thing about all of this.

One of the things that we can expect to see if this man is confirmed will be a new investigation into the case of Mumia the cop-killer. Back in 2010 the Supreme Court threw out the Beard v Abu-Jamal case, officially ending his appeal process. However, there was a petition circulated for Obama and Holder to investigate the “long history of civil rights and constitutional violations” in the Abu-Jamal case. It is sad to think that despite multiple appeals and court rulings over the past three decades upholding the conviction, that we might end up see this convicted radical cop-killer have a chance for release because he friends are now running the system. There is an old phrase about ‘show me your friends and I will tell you who are.’ The company that Obama keeps speaks volumes about how he really feels.

What do YOU think? Is this nomination a good idea? Do you think it will be confirmed by the Democrat-controlled Senate? Are you now convinced that Obama may just be even more of a radical than most people realize?

Former ACORN Head Bertha Lewis Calls For More Immigration To Boost Black Power

ACORN’s Former Chief Calls For More Immigration To Boost Black Power – Daily Caller

ACORN’s former CEO Bertha Lewis urged Africans-Americans to support increased immigration as a strategy to gain political power.

..

“We got some Latino cousins, we got some Asian cousins, we got some Native-American cousins, we got all kind of cousins,” said Lewis, who spoke Thursday at the annual political conference of the Congressional Black Caucus.

“Cousins need to get together because if we’re going to be [part of the non-white] majority, it makes sense for black people in this country to get down with immigration reform,” said Lewis, whose ACORN group was formally disbanded in 2010 after a series of scandals.

Lewis did not mention solidarity with whites in her appeal for power.

“Everyone, even all white folks in this country, acknowledge that in a minute, [the] United States of America will be a new majority, will be majority minority, a brand-new thing,” she said.

In 2012, “for the first time ever in history, African-Americans outvoted white Americans. Oooh. That’s the fear of the white man. That could change everything. That’s why [immigration] should matter to us,” she declared.

Lewis got only modest applause from the room of 300 attendees, nearly all of whom were black.

But her appeal for non-white solidarity was backed up by New York Democratic Rep. Yvette Clarke.

“What will happen with comprehensive immigration reform will be a new landscape of humanity in the United States of America,” Clarke told the attendees.

“America is a shape-shifter, and based on who’s here, in what numbers and at what time, determines the political outcomes,” she said. Blacks should cooperate with Latinos, she said, adding “we all have skin in the game, literally.”

The racial appeal was echoed by William Spriggs, chief economist at the AFL-CIO. “If we are going to be the new majority, we’re going to have to start acting like the new majority and start setting the new rules,” he said.

Once Congress approves an immigration increase, minorities should demand more, said Chicago Democratic Rep. Luis Gutierrez, a leading advocate of the pending Senate bill,

“The next day after we pass it, you know we’re not going to be satisfied, we’re going to come back,” he said. “We’re going to have a civil rights act, we’re going to have a voting rights act… Nobody is leaving this fight once we conclude this first chapter,” he said.

“Hopefully, in 30 years, [we] can bring immigrants… from all over the world,” Gutierrez said.

The call for solidarity among non-whites was commingled with some non-racial calls for solidarity of working-class Americans.

African-Americans should not object to gains by immigrants, said Spriggs, who became a union economist after leaving an assistant secretary job at the Obama Department of Labor.

“Somebody else winning doesn’t mean you’re losing,” the economist explained. “We can’t let one set of workers be pushed aside and think we’re going to make it.”

Other attendees complained about immigrants’ refusal to hire African-Americans or to accept civil-rights laws, and the commonplace stealing of Social Security Numbers.

Currently, the formal unemployment rate among African-Americans is 13 percent. However, the formal number understates the level of unemployment. For example, fewer than half of black men aged between 18 and 30 have full-time jobs.

Last June, President Barack Obama bypassed Congress’ opposition to an amnesty for younger illegal immigrants, and has awarded work-permits to almost 500,000 young illegal immigrants.

This July, with support from Obama, the Senate passed an immigration bill that would provide work permits to roughly 33 million immigrants and create a pool of roughly 2 million blue-collar and university-trained guest-workers, over the next decade.

Advocates say increased immigration will spur the economy and fund a bigger government.

But studies of increased immigration suggest the economic gains will go to immigrants and company owners. Some attendees said the caucus should focus more clearly on issues of concern to black Americans.

“We are the last hired and have the last opportunities, yet amnesty supporters would have you think that adding millions more workers at this time is good,” said Leah Durant, founder of the Black American Leadership Alliance. ”When so many Americans of all races are out of work, that is ridiculous,” Durant told TheDaily Caller.

“Blacks as well as other low-skilled workers have made their greatest advances when we have low levels of immigration,” she said. “It is time for black leaders to stand up for blacks.”

A June poll by NumbersUSA, a group which want to shrink immigration, reported that only 15 percent of blacks and 44 percent of Hispanics back the Senate bill’s offer of amnesty to 11 million illegal-immigrants. A July poll conducted for advocates of increased immigration reported that 59 percent of registered Latino voters support a goal of “stopping 90 percent of the undocumented immigration in the future.”

Yet most members of the Congressional Black Caucus have agreed to back the Senate immigration bill.

ACORN’s Lewis mocked the mainstream concerns.

“You had some black folks talk about ‘Those people took my job… [and] I used to be in a big house, but now I ain’t,’” she sneered. Those complaints were “madness,” said Lewis, who works as a political activist with other pro-immigration activists, donors and foundations.

In response, Durant condemned black leaders’ rush for increased immigration, saying “They see political advantage in it for themselves, and they’re selling out the blank community.”

Gutierrez urged African-American and Latino legislators to hide their disagreements from the public.

“We have tough conversations when we lock the room – but we are smart enough to lock the room,” he told the audience. “We keep our arguments to ourselves.”

ICE Union Head Claims Obama Acts “Like A Dictator”, Calls For Congressional Investigation Into ICE Policies

ICE Union Head Wants Congressional Investigations Into Obama’s ICE Policies… Obama Acts “Like A Dictator”, “Overstepping His Authority” – Gateway Pundit

Representative Louie Gohmert substituted for Hannity on last Friday’s radio show (Aug. 30, 2013). In the second hour, there was a discussion with ICE Council President Chris Crane on Obama’s inability to do the job that is constitutionally authorized to the Executive branch – securing the sovereignty of this nation by securing U.S. borders.

.

Chris Crane has been troubled by Obama’s actions that resemble a dictator – ignoring constitutional law while making his own laws through policy. Chris Crane is not alone – many Americans share the same concerns and wonder what it will take for Congress to act.

.

.
DailyCaller reports the following:

In an appearance on Sean Hannity’s radio show Friday, hosted by fill-in host Texas Republican Rep. Louie Gohmert, the head of the union representing the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents called on Congress to investigate the administration’s immigration policies.

“With regard to our government in general, I mean right now, that’s our problem with our immigration system,” National ICE Council President Chris Crane said. “[The problem] is not our immigration system, it’s our government, and it’s the ability of a president of the United States to ignore the laws enacted by Congress.”

“And it doesn’t matter what type of legislation we pass, until we address that problem, we will never have an immigration system that works,” he added. “As long as one person can act like a dictator and ignore the law and make his own laws through policy, we will never have a system that works.”

Crane and his union have been vocal opponents of the Obama administration’s immigration policies – notably its Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program – and the Senate-passed immigration bill.

“There is no more of a clear cut case in our country of the president overstepping his authority, ignoring the law, ignoring the Constitution, than the president’s ordering of ICE agents not to enforce U.S. immigration law,” he said. “Yet we have no investigations from Congress into this whatsoever.” [...]

Former Top Lobbyist For Leftist Criminal Organization ACORN Heads ObamaCare Youth Video Contest

White House Taps ACORN’s Former Top Lobbyist To Head Obamacare Youth Video Contest – Weasel Zippers

.

Update to this story.

Via Daily Mail:

A liberal organization tapped Monday to manage a new federal government-sponsored video contest aimed at encouraging young Americans to embrace Obamacare is run by ACORN’s former top lobbyist, MailOnline can reveal.

ACORN, the once-mighty Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, crumbled in 2010 just months after a video sting operation showed its employees advising activists posing as a pimp and prostitute on how to evade federal taxes and hide crimes including human trafficking and prostitution.

Congress voted officially to defund it shortly thereafter.

The far-left ACORN was also dogged for years by allegations – some proven, others not – that its street-level organizers engaged in widespread voter registration fraud.

In its heyday, ACORN’s legislative agenda was managed by Deepak Bhargava, an Indian-born community organizer. Bhargava left ACORN in 2002 after holding the top government affairs position there for 10 years. He is now executive director of the Washington, D.C.-based Center for Community Change.

In 2013 that organization sponsored a new youth outreach arm called Young Invincibles, which announced a partnership on Monday with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

Their joint effort will award cash prizes to the creators of online videos that convince millennials to sign up for Obamacare health insurance exchanges, which open for enrollment on October 1.

Man Who Calls Himself A “Pastafarian” Permitted To Wear A Sieve On His Head In Official ID Photo

‘I’m A Pastafarian’: Man Who Claims His Religion Forces Him To Wear A Sieve On His Head Given Permission To Wear One On His Official Identity Card Picture – Daily Mail

A man who wears a sieve on his head for religious reasons has been allowed to wear his bizarre headgear on his official identity card.

Prankster Lukas Novy, from Brno in the Czech Republic, claims that his Pastafarian faith means he has to wear the sieve at all times.

Officials ruled that turning down Novy’s request would be a breach of the country’s religious equality laws.

.

Brno City Hall spokesman Pavel Zara explained: ‘The application complies with the laws of the Czech Republic where headgear for religious or medical reasons is permitted if it does not hide the face.’

Novy claims to be a member of the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, when emerged in the USA as spoof on organised religion.

According to its tongue-in-cheek website their ‘only dogma… is the rejection of dogma’.

Members claim to believe that an invisible alien made of spaghetti and meatballs created the universe after ‘drinking heavily.’

In 2005, physics graduate Bobby Henderson, 24, from Oregon State wrote a letter about a ‘Flying Spaghetti Monster’ as a protest against the Kansas State Board of Education’s decision to allow the teaching of intelligent fesign as an alternative to evolution in public schools.

The ‘religion’ arose as a response to pressure for American schools to teach the theory known as intelligent design, which some Christians favour as an alternative to natural selection and evolution. The theory argues life must have been helped to develop by an unseen power.

The Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster wrote to the Kansas School Board asking for the Pastafarian version of intelligent design to be taught to schoolchildren as a way of criticising the intelligent design campaigners.

By professing belief in a supernatural entity composed of pasta and meatballs, Henderson called on ‘Pastafarianism’ to be given equal time in science classrooms alongside Christian theory.

Word rapidly spread and the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster (CFSM) now has thousands of followers, mainly on college campuses and in Europe.

The central tenet of CFSM is that an invisible Flying Spaghetti Monster created the universe ‘after drinking heavily’.

Pastafarians celebrate every Friday as a holy day – and consider pirates ‘absolute divine beings’.

Head Of National Abortion Organization Caught Soliciting 12-Year-Old Girl

Head Of National Abortion Organization Caught Soliciting 12-Year-Old Girl – FrontPage

…………………

Scott Swirling was the head of the National Family Planning & Reproductive Health Association from 1981 to 1991. The NFPRHA is a national umbrella organization based out of D.C. that makes policy and conducts legal fights on abortion issues. And lately, Scott has been showing off what a good family man he is.

The former director of family planning and school counseling advocacy groups in the District of Columbia has been arrested for allegedly arranging to have sex with a 12-year-old girl in an online Internet sting.

Scott Richard Swirling, 61, thought he was discussing plans to meet a District man who was offering to let him have sex with his preteen daughter, authorities said.

It turns out Swirling was dealing with an undercover D.C. police officer.

Besides being a family man, Scott likes the Borgias, defunding the Komen Foundation and ending union busting. and hates Mitt Romney. He is a big fan of violating civil rights, writing; “Women’s health care is an essential component of any health insurance plan. All employers (except religious organizations serving only co-religionists and hiring only co-religionists) must include comprehensive women’s health care coverage among their health insurance benefits.”

Swirling also headed the American School Counselor Association.
