In Case You Missed It Dept.:
President Obama’s televised speech granting amnesty on Thursday was not carried by CBS, ABC and NBC. The networks thought viewers would prefer to watch the Big Bang Theory, Bones and the World’s Biggest Loser. After six years in office, Barack Obama finds himself the president of Univision.
Missouri’s governor put the National Guard on alert as a grand jury decision in Ferguson looms. In case of a not guilty verdict, civil rights leaders are urging everyone to make a list. Nothing makes you feel stupider than coming back home from the riot with ten cases of Pampers and you don’t have a kid.
Vermont fired Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber as Vermont’s health care architect. He’s so toxic now. He got caught on tape bragging about how they had to mislead the American people to pass Obamacare when any idiot would have laid low about it, but Gruber proved he’s not just any idiot.
President Obama’s amnesty order was protested in millions of emails and tweets Thursday. The reaction was volcanic. No one wants to say that opponents are angry, but Michelle Obama just recommended that standing onstage and defending her husband is a good way to get your vegetables.
Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel was forced to resign his office by President Obama Monday over policy differences with the White House in the Middle East, China and Russia. Chuck Hagel is widely regarded in Washington D.C. as a guy of unquestioned integrity and truthfulness. So he had to go.
Missouri’s governor hinted White House pressure kept him from protecting Ferguson merchants with Guard units Monday. The president’s TV address did not help. Ferguson merchants didn’t board up their windows till the president said if they like their merchandise, they can keep their merchandise.
Ferguson demonstrators rioted a second night Tuesday with TV cameras airing all the mayhem over the Missouri grand jury’s verdict which sided in favor of the Ferguson cop. The rioters smashed the window of a Pay-Less shoe store and looted the place. They took everything except the work boots.
New York protestors blocked the Holland Tunnel and L.A. protestors blocked the Hollywood Freeway on Tuesday over the Ferguson grand jury verdict. The exasperation is palpable. It’s getting to the point in this country where you can’t even tell a policeman to screw off and try to take his gun and not get shot.
President Obama declared that Americans don’t have any right to oppose immigration Tuesday in a speech he made in Chicago. It’s a stunning example of the change he’s engineered. Just six years ago Barack Obama was the President of the United States, and here he is today, the King of New Spain.
President Obama said Tuesday he understood the frustration of the Ferguson rioters. This could fix another problem. The big reason so many immigrants come here from Latin America is that the U.S. is such a desirable place to live, and President Obama is working as hard as he can to turn that around.

The state of North Dakota has named a new publicly-owned landfill after President Barack Obama …”It’s darkly colored and it’s full of shit. That pretty much sums up Obama.”
