Weekly Address: Immigration Accountability Executive Action

 

Published on Nov 22, 2014

In this week’s address, the President laid out the steps he took this past week to fix our broken immigration system. Enacted within his legal authority, the President’s plan focuses on cracking down on illegal immigration at the border; deporting felons, not families; and accountability through criminal background checks and taxes.

 

 

 

Mensaje De La Casa Blanca

 

Published on Nov 22, 2014

En el mensaje de la Casa Blanca de esta semana, Denis McDonough, Jefe de Estado de la Casa Blanca expuso las medidas que el Presidente tomó la semana pasada para arreglar nuestro sistema de inmigración que no funciona. Promulgada dentro de sus facultades legales, el plan del Presidente se centra en tomar medidas enérgicas contra la inmigración ilegal en la frontera; la deportación de criminales, no las familias; y la rendición de cuentas a través de la verificación de antecedentes penales y de los impuestos. Estos son pasos de sentido común, pero sólo el Congreso puede terminar el trabajo. Como actúa el Presidente, que continuará trabajando con el Congreso en un proyecto de ley bipartidista integral – como lo que el Senado aprobó hace más de un año – que puede sustituir a estas acciones y fijar el conjunto del sistema

We Were Strangers Once, Too”: The President Announces New Steps on Immigration

The President Speaks on Fixing America’s Broken Immigration System

 

Published on Nov 20, 2014

In an address to the nation, President Obama lays out the executive action he’s taking to fix our nation’s broken immigration system, November 20, 2014.

 

 

“Scripture tells us that we shall not oppress a stranger, for we know the heart of a stranger — we were strangers once, too. My fellow Americans, we are and always will be a nation of immigrants. We were strangers once, too.”

– President Obama, November 20, 2014

 

Since the founding of our nation, we’ve weaved a tradition of welcoming immigrants into the very fabric of who we are. It’s what keeps us dynamic, entrepreneurial, and uniquely American.

But, as we know all too well, America’s immigration system is broken. So tonight, President Obama addressed the nation on the executive actions he is taking to help fix what he can:

 

1. We will build on our progress at the border with additional resources for our law enforcement personnel. 

Today, we have more agents and technology deployed to secure our southern border than at any time in our history. And over the past six years, illegal border crossings have been cut by more than half. Although this summer, there was a brief spike in unaccompanied children being apprehended at our border, the number of such children is now actually lower than it’s been in nearly two years. Overall, the number of people trying to cross our border illegally is at its lowest level since the 1970s.  Those are the facts.

 

2. We will make it easier and faster for high-skilled immigrants, graduates, and entrepreneurs to stay and contribute to our economy, as so many business leaders have proposed. 

 

3. We will take steps to deal responsibly with the millions of undocumented immigrants who already live in our country.

 

Families who enter our country the right way and play by the rules watch others flout the rules. Business owners who offer their workers good wages and benefits see the competition exploit undocumented immigrants by paying them far less. All of us take offense to anyone who reaps the rewards of living in America without taking on the responsibilities of living in America. And undocumented immigrants who desperately want to embrace those responsibilities see little option but to remain in the shadows, or risk their families being torn apart.

 

We are a nation of immigrants, and we are a nation of laws. We must hold accountable those who broke the law, while understanding that the mass deportation of millions of Americans is neither possible nor in keeping with who we are as Americans. That is why the President is focusing enforcement resources on actual threats to our security: “Felons, not families. Criminals, not children. Gang members, not a mom who’s working hard to provide for her kids.”

“I continue to believe that the best way to solve this problem is by working together to pass that kind of common-sense law.”

 


 

So here is the deal the President put forward tonight:

 

If you’ve been in America for more than five years; if you have children who are American citizens or legal residents; if you register, pass a criminal background check, and you’re willing to pay your fair share of taxes — you’ll be able to apply to stay in this country temporarily, without fear of deportation. You can come out of the shadows and get right with the law.

 

Here is what this deal is not: Amnesty. Amnesty is the immigration system we have now, in which millions of people live here without paying their taxes or playing by the rules, and politicians use this issue to scare and divide Americans.

 

That’s the real amnesty — leaving this broken system the way it is. Mass amnesty would be unfair. Mass deportation would be both impossible and contrary to our character. What I’m describing is accountability – a common-sense, middle ground approach: If you meet the criteria, you can come out of the shadows and get right with the law. If you’re a criminal, you’ll be deported. If you plan to enter the U.S. illegally, your chances of getting caught and sent back just went up.

 

The best and most definitive way to fix the system is to pass comprehensive and common-sense immigration reform in Congress. Last year, 68 Democrats, Republicans, and independents in the Senate came together to do just that. That bipartisan bill would have doubled the number of Border Patrol agents; given undocumented immigrants a pathway to citizenship if they pay a fine, start paying taxes, and go to the back of the line; and boosted our economy while shrinking the deficit.

 


“What makes us Americans is our shared commitment to an ideal — that all of us are created equal, and all of us have the chance to make of our lives what we will.”


 

But more than 500 days later, Republicans in the House continue to block the bipartisan bill from a vote. “Had the House of Representatives allowed that kind of a bill a simple yes-or-no vote, it would have passed with support from both parties, and today it would be the law,” the President noted.

 

So the President had to act, just as every president since President Eisenhower has over this last half century.

 

To those Members of Congress who question my authority to make our immigration system work better, or question the wisdom of me acting where Congress has failed, I have one answer: Pass a bill.

 

At the heart of the President’s actions is a commitment to who we are as a nation. We are a nation that values families and works together to keep them together. We are a nation that educates the world’s best and brightest, and encourages them to stay and create jobs here.

 

 

We are a nation that welcomes the tired, the poor, and the huddled weary who yearn to breathe free and build a better life for their children.

 

As the President said:

 

Scripture tells us that we shall not oppress a stranger, for we know the heart of a stranger — we were strangers once, too.

 

My fellow Americans, we are and always will be a nation of immigrants. We were strangers once, too. And whether our forebears were strangers who crossed the Atlantic, or the Pacific, or the Rio Grande, we are here only because this country welcomed them in, and taught them that to be an American is about something more than what we look like, or what our last names are, or how we worship.  What makes us Americans is our shared commitment to an ideal – that all of us are created equal, and all of us have the chance to make of our lives what we will.

Here’s What the President Is Doing to Fix Our Broken Immigration System:

 

Tonight at 8 p.m. ET, the President will address the nation on the new steps he’s taking to increase accountability and fix what he can in our immigration system. You can watch his address live here.

 

As everyone knows, our immigration system has been broken for decades, and the President is doing his job to address the problems that he can with his executive authority. He will continue to work with Congress to pass comprehensive and common-sense immigration reform that will offer a long-term and much-needed solution.

 

So what exactly is the President’s plan for immigration? Take a look at what the President plans to do:

 

immigrationinfolong

 

Every U.S. president since President Eisenhower has used his executive authority to address immigration issues. However, President Obama cannot fix the system on his own — Congress must pass comprehensive immigration reform in order to enact a long-term solution. The U.S. Senate passed a bipartisan immigration bill more than 500 days ago, but House Republicans are still refusing to bring it up for a vote.

 

The President is doing his job, and it’s time for Republicans in Congress to do theirs so we can build a system that lives up to our history as a nation of laws and a nation of immigrants.

The President Awards the National Medals of Science and National Medals of Technology and Innovation

 

November 20, 2014 | 29:37 | Public Domain

President Obama delivers remarks at the National Medals of Science and National Medals of Technology and Innovation awards ceremony.

 

 

 

President Obama Honors America’s Top Scientists and Engineers, Launches New Steps to Cultivate Tomorrow’s Innovators

 

Today, in the East Room of the White House, President Obama awarded National Medals of Science and National Medals of Technology and Innovation to 19 of our nation’s top thinkers, discoverers, and innovators — marveling both at the amount of brainpower packed into the room and the magnitude of the laureates’ achievements.

“The results of the work of the people we honor today have transformed our world,”President Obama said.

 

The medals are the nation’s highest honors for achievement and leadership in advancing the fields of science and technology. This year’s class of laureates includes individuals with groundbreaking accomplishments that have improved lives and pushed forward the boundaries of human understanding — from contributions including the commercialization of thumb drives and invention of minimally invasive medical devices, to new insights about insect-plant interactions and how heart valves operate, to the fundamental research that has made HPV vaccines a reality.

In remarks honoring the awardees, President Obama noted that to continue this legacy of scientific discovery and technological innovation, we must do all that we can to lift our game in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education:

We have to remind ourselves constantly that so much of what has set us apart economically, culturally, is our commitment to science. And we have to continue to broaden opportunities for young scientists, especially girls and minority students, to enter into the field, and we have to remind them of how exciting it is to be able to shape the world, unlock its secrets, make new stuff. That’s who we are.

At today’s ceremony, the President announced a series of important new commitments and announcements to advance his Educate to Innovate initiative, an all-hands-on-deck campaign to help more girls and boys be inspired to excel in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) subjects. The campaign reflects the President’s core conviction that far more needs to be done in giving students the critical skills needed to succeed in STEM fields, and that success requires action not just from the federal government, but also the broader community of educational leaders, foundations, companies, non-profits, and science and technology professionals. Steps announced by the President and Educate to Innovate partners today include:

  • 100kin10, a network of more than 200 partners, announced that it has raised another $28 million in support of the goal of preparing 100,000 excellent STEM teachers over a decade.
  • Change the Equation, a coalition of leading CEOs, committed to expanding high-quality STEM programs to more than 1 million students by 2016.
  • Discovery Communications will launch a new show next year to inspire students in STEM fields, highlighting “All-American Makers.”
  • Ongoing progress from a range of partners, with full details here.

Noting the achievements of today’s medalists and the promise and potential of a new generation of scientific discoverers, explorers, builders, and makers, President Obama remarked:

That’s one of the things that makes America exceptional — this sense that we push against limits and that we’re not afraid to ask questions. And when that spirit, that sense of possibility, is truly unleashed, then you get the remarkable men and women that you see here today.

The White House warmly congratulates all of today’s National Medal of Science and National Medal of Technology and Innovation laureates. Tomorrow’s laureates are sitting in classrooms across the country today, and the world awaits the incredible discoveries and inventions to come.

Celebrating 24 Years of the Americans with Disabilities Act

 

Tomorrow marks the 24th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) — a landmark law that transformed American society for people with disabilities. It provided for full participation, independent living, and economic self-sufficiency for those of us living with disabilities, and also provided Americans with disabilities with legal remedies to safeguard all of those rights.

 

Watch the President’s ADA anniversary message below:

 

 

 

Presidential Proclamation — Anniversary of the Americans With Disabilities Act

ANNIVERSARY OF THE AMERICANS WITH DISABILITIES ACT, 2014

- – - – - – -

BY THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

A PROCLAMATION

Over two decades ago, Americans — some in wheelchairs, some using sign language, and all with an abiding belief in our Nation’s promise — came together to strengthen our commitment to equality for all.  At a time when people with disabilities were turned away at movie theaters, rejected for employment, and measured by what so many thought they could not do, leaders and activists refused to accept the world as it was.  In small towns and big cities, they spoke out.  They staged sit-ins, authored discrimination diaries, and scaled the Capitol steps.  Finally, they realized their call for simple justice in one of the most comprehensive civil rights bills in our country’s history.  On the anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), we honor those who fought against discrimination, and we recommit to tearing down barriers and guaranteeing all Americans the right to pursue their own measure of happiness.

 

The ADA promises equal access and equal opportunity — regardless of ability.  It secures each person’s right to an independent life, and it enables our country and our economy to benefit from the talents and contributions of all Americans.

 

Even as we commemorate this milestone, we recognize that too often, casual discrimination or fear of the unfamiliar still prevent disabled Americans from achieving their full potential.  That is why my Administration is pushing to fulfill the promise of and better enforce the ADA.  Fifteen years after the Olmstead decision — in which the Supreme Court ruled it discrimination to unjustifiably institutionalize someone with a disability — we have increased the number of homes integrated into communities that are available for persons with disabilities.  Under the Affordable Care Act, insurance companies are banned from discriminating on the basis of pre-existing conditions, medical history, or genetic information.  Expanding on my Executive Order to establish the Federal Government as a model employer of individuals with disabilities, my Administration is also providing Federal contractors with the tools and resources to recruit, retain, and promote people with disabilities.

 

The nearly one in five Americans living with a disability are our parents, children, neighbors, colleagues, and friends.  They are entitled to the same rights and freedoms as everyone else.  Today, we celebrate their accomplishments, stand against discrimination in all its forms, and honor all who sacrificed so future generations might know a more equal society.

 

NOW, THEREFORE, I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim July 26, 2014, the Anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act.  I encourage Americans across our Nation to celebrate the 24th anniversary of this civil rights law and the many contributions of individuals with disabilities.

 

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this  twenty-fifth day of July, in the year of our Lord two thousand fourteen, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and thirty-ninth.

 

BARACK OBAMA

In September 2009, the President announced that—for the first time in history—White House visitor records would be made available to the public on an ongoing basis. Today, the White House releases visitor records that were generated in April 2014. This release brings the total number of records made public by this White House to more than 3.81 million—all of which can be viewed in our Disclosures section.

Making the Business Case for Rural America

 

Ed. note: This is cross-posted from the USDA Blog, see the original post here.

 

These days, it seems like it’s easier than ever to turn a good idea into reality. This is the era of Kickstarter, where entrepreneurs can connect with potential investors at the click of a button.

 

Of course, it takes more than money to grow an idea. It takes an atmosphere that fosters creativity and rewards innovation. And at a deeper, less obvious level, it requires strong, secure infrastructure—roads and bridges, but also internet access and community facilities like hospitals and schoolsthat improves connectivity and access to information, moves products to market, and makes communities competitive and attractive to new businesses and investments.

 

Part of the challenge we face in rural America is that in too many places, infrastructure is outdated and cannot support the same kinds of opportunities that are easily found in cities and larger towns.

Obama Called “Antichrist” By Insane Heckler

 

Published on Jul 25, 2014

President Obama was confronted by an angry heckler who interrupted his speech and repeatedly called him “the antichrist.” This incident epitomizes the blind hatred Obama – America’s first African American President – has faced throughout his time in office.

Statement from the President on Unlocking Consumer Choice and Wireless Competition Act

 

  • A Call Answered: Unlocking America’s Cell Phones

     

    Last year, over 114,000 of you made your voice heard and petitioned the Administration to restore a basic consumer freedom: to take your mobile service — and a phone or tablet you already own — to the carrier that best suits your needs.

     

    It’s common sense, good for competition and innovation, and essential to consumers.  That’s why the Administration declared last March that “It’s time to legalize cell phone unlocking,” and today the President commended Congress for doing just that:

     

    I applaud Members of Congress for passing the Unlocking Consumer Choice and Wireless Competition Act. Last year, in response to a “We the People” petition from consumers across our country, my Administration called for allowing Americans to use their phones or mobile devices on any network they choose. We laid out steps the FCC, industry, and Congress should take to ensure copyright law does not undermine wireless competition, and worked with wireless carriers to reach a voluntary agreement that helps restore this basic consumer freedom. The bill Congress passed today is another step toward giving ordinary Americans more flexibility and choice, so that they can find a cell phone carrier that meets their needs and their budget. I commend Chairmen Leahy and Goodlatte, and Ranking Members Grassley and Conyers for their leadership on this important consumer issue and look forward to signing this bill into law.

     

    Everyone has done their part to get here — from the FCC convening carriers, to the industry agreeing to voluntary steps to make their unlocking process transparent and reliable.  And as he said today, the President looks forward to signing this bill into law. It’s just one more way he is taking the lead in making life a little easier for the middle class, and ensuring our technology remains the envy of the world.

     

    You called, the President answered, and together we made cell phone unlocking happen.

Connecting African Leaders to U.S. Industry Beyond the Beltway

 

The upcoming U.S.-Africa Leaders Summit, which is the largest single engagement by any U.S. President with our African partners, will help the United States play a driving role in the continent’s future development.

Many Americans are aware that sub-Saharan Africa is a fast-growing region with tremendous potential, but they may not know about significant plans to develop infrastructure across the continent. We believe that these plans represent enormous business opportunities for U.S. companies of all sizes, and that is why we have invited key African decision-makers to meet with private-sector leaders in Chicago and Houston prior to the Summit.

These African Leaders’ Visits, which the U.S. Trade and Development Agency is partnering with the U.S. Departments of Transportation and Energy to host from July 30 to August 1, will highlight the United States’ experience fostering economic growth through key infrastructure investments. These Visits are the only commercially focused events to take African leaders to major U.S. cities outside of Washington, D.C. on the occasion of the Summit.

A Day in the Life: Deric from Baltimore

 

Meet Deric.

 

Deric Richardson had been out of work for over a year. He had a GED and a Microsoft Office certificate, but needed an opportunity to improve his skills. That opportunity came in the form of tuition-free training in laboratory skills provided by the nonprofit BioTechnical Institute of Maryland. Shortly after successfully completing the training, Deric was hired by Baltimore-based Paragon Bioservices in July 2010.

 

Today, Secretary of Labor Tom Perez is traveling to Baltimore to meet with him.

 

Deric’s story is just one great example of how job-driven training is working for Americans across the country. When we talk about “job-driven” training, we’re talking about making sure we’re providing people with the skills that employers are looking for right now to fill available jobs. Earlier this week, President Obama signed the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act, which will elevate more job-driven programs like BTI.

 

This is the second in a series of “day in the life” trips Secretary Perez — in addition to other secretaries across the President’s cabinet — will be taking over the next few months. It’s a chance to talk directly with the people the Labor Department works for every day.

 

We want to make sure you see what he sees, too. Follow along today to see live updates and highlights from Secretary Perez’s day.

Dumbfuckery Of The Day: Boehner: Why We Must Now Sue The President. {Cause We Can’t Beat Him Legally}

From CNN:

 

Boehner: Why we must now sue the President

 

 Rep. John Boehner, R-Ohio, is speaker of the House of Representatives. The opinions expressed in this commentary are solely those of the author. Which means he does jack shit all day long.

 

 

boehner5

 

(CNN) – Every member of Congress swore an oath to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States. So did President Barack Obama.

 

But too often over the past five years, the President has circumvented the American people and their elected representatives through executive action, changing and creating his own laws, and excusing himself from enforcing statutes he is sworn to uphold — at times even boasting about his willingness to do it, as if daring the American people to stop him.

 

Boehner: Why we must sue the President

 

Published on Jul 6, 2014

House Speaker John Boehner says he will introduce legislation that will authorize Congress to sue the President.

 

 

That’s why, later this month, we will bring legislation to the House floor that would authorize the House of Representatives to file suit in an effort to compel President Obama to follow his oath of office and faithfully execute the laws of our country.

The President’s response: “So sue me.”

obama-teachers

What’s disappointing is the President’s flippant dismissal of the Constitution we are both sworn to defend. It is utterly beneath the dignity of the office. I know the President is frustrated. I’m frustrated. The American people are frustrated, too.

After years of slow economic growth and high unemployment under President Obama, they are still asking, ‘where are the jobs?’ The House has passed more than 40 jobs bills that would help. But Washington Democrats, led by the President, just ignore them.

Even worse, the President’s habit of ignoring the law as written hurts our economy and jobs even more. Washington taxes and regulations always make it harder for private sector employers to meet payrolls, invest in new initiatives and create jobs — but how can those employers plan, invest and grow when the laws are changing on the President’s whim at any moment?

 

I don’t take the House legal action against the President lightly. We’ve passed legislation to address this problem (twice), but Senate Democrats, characteristically, have ignored it.

In the end, the Constitution makes it clear that the President’s job is to faithfully execute the laws. And, in my view, the President has not faithfully executed the laws when it comes to a range of issues, including his health care law, energy regulations, foreign policy and education.

 

There must be accountability. We have a system of government outlined in our Constitution with the executive branch, the legislative branch, and the judicial branch. Congress has its job to do, and so does the President. When there are conflicts like this — between the legislative branch and the executive branch — it is my view that it is our responsibility to stand up for this institution in which we serve, and for the Constitution.

 

If you look back over American history, there has always been a tension between the inherent powers of the executive branch versus the inherent powers of the legislative branch. This issue is as old as Marbury vs. Madison and as fresh as the unanimous Supreme Court ruling last week that the President overstepped his authority on recess appointments.

Over the last five years, starting — not coincidentally — when his political party lost the majority in the House of Representatives, the President has consistently overstepped his authority under the Constitution, and in so doing eroded the power of the legislative branch.

The legislative branch has an obligation to defend the rights and responsibilities of the American people, and America’s constitutional balance of powers — before it is too late.

Obama: Boehner’s lawsuit is ‘a stunt’

 

(CNN) – President Barack Obama called House Speaker John Boehner’s plans to file a lawsuit over the President’s use of executive action “a stunt,” in an interview with ABC News Chief Anchor George Stephanopoulos.

“You notice that he didn’t specifically say what exactly he was objecting to. I’m not going to apologize for trying to do something while they’re doing nothing,” the President said.

 

Barack Obama Dismisses John Boehner Lawsuit as a Stunt on GMA Interview 

 

Published on Jun 27, 2014

6-27-14 – (ABC) – The first part of George Stephanopoulos’ interview with President Barack Obama aired Friday morning on Good Morning America (more to come Sunday on This Week) and during their talk the president addressed House Speaker John Boehner’s proposed lawsuit against him for the first time. “You notice that he didn’t specifically say what exactly he was objecting to,” Obama told Stephanopoulos during his trip to Minnesota. “I’m not going to apologize for trying to do something while they’re doing nothing.”

 

“The suit is a stunt,” he added.

 

“What I’ve told Speaker Boehner directly is, ‘If you’re really concerned about me taking too many executive actions, why don’t you try getting something done through Congress?’” Obama continued, mentioning immigration reform as one area in which Americans want action. “You’re going to squawk if I try to fix some parts of it administratively that are within my authority while you’re not doing anything?”

 

On Wednesday, Boehner held a press conference in which he announced the planned lawsuit and criticized Obama for “bragging” about taking executive action on issues. But, he added, “This is not about impeachment, this is about his faithfully executing the laws of our country.”

 

 

 

“You know, the suit is a stunt. But what I’ve told Speaker Boehner directly is, ‘If you’re really concerned about me taking too many executive actions, why don’t you try getting something done through Congress?’”

 

The interview aired on ABC’s “Good Morning America”Friday morning. It was conducted Thursday during the President’s trip to Minneapolis, where Obama held a town hall meeting.

 

The President touted the accomplishments of his first five years in office but lamented the tone in Washington.

 

“What I do worry about is that right now we’ve got a Republican Party that seems to only care about saying no to me.” Obama said.

 

 

Obama Dismisses Boehner Lawsuit as a ‘Stunt’ on GMA

The first part of George Stephanopoulos’ interview with President Barack Obama aired Friday morning on Good Morning America (more to come Sunday on This Week) and during their talk the president addressed House Speaker John Boehner’s proposed lawsuit against him for the first time.

 

 

 

He repeated his frustrations about the immigration reform bill passed a year ago by the Senate that’s been stalled in the House, and having to use executive action.

 

“The majority of American people want to see immigration reform done. We had a bipartisan bill through the Senate, and you’re going to squawk if I try to fix some parts of it administratively that are within my authority while you are not doing anything?’” the President added.

 

Responding to Obama’s comments, Boehner spokesman Michael Steel said Friday in a statement that “the American people, their elected representatives, and the Supreme Court have all expressed serious concerns about the President’s failure to follow the Constitution. Dismissing them with words like, ‘smidgen’ or ‘stunt’ only reinforces their frustration.”

 

Republicans argue that the President is breaching his constitutional power by side-stepping the legislative process. Obama has used executive actions as a way to bypass a deeply divided Congress, avoiding inaction on issues the White House has made hallmarks of the President’s second term agenda.

 

So far, the Republican-controlled House has passed two bills aimed at curbing executive orders by the President, neither of which have gone anywhere in the Democratic-controlled Senate.

 

At this point in his presidency, Obama has issued less executive orders than his most recent two-term predecessors in the White House, George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, and Ronald Reagan.

 

In speaking of immigration during the interview, the President was asked about the thousands of unaccompanied children from Central America coming across the southern border. He implored their parents to not send their kids.

 

“Our message absolutely is, ‘Don’t send your children unaccompanied on trains on through a bunch of smugglers.’ That is our direct message to the families in Central America. ‘Do not send your children to the borders. If they do make it, they’ll get sent back. More importantly, they may not make it’,” he said.

Waitresses openly carry guns at restaurant in Rifle, Colorado

 

Published on Jul 8, 2014

While “open carry” firearm laws are being debated across the country, there’s been a push back from some businesses about allowing owners to carry handguns in public. Barry Petersen reports on a Colorado establishment taking the opposite approach.

 

 

 

Doc Holiday was a gunslinger/killer……John Henry “Doc” Holliday (August 14, 1851 – November 8, 1887) was an American gambler,gunfighter, and dentist of the American Old West who is usually remembered for his friendship with Wyatt Earp and his involvement in the Gunfight at the O.K. Corral

 

Doc was no joke, he’d shoot you as soon as look at you. Doc wore his peacemaker in the only position proven to allow  fast draw with accuracy…over his left hip high up with the handle angled to his right side, at hand height. The dumbass females in the above video, as well as the patrons of Shooters Grill, all have their weapons on them for show only. You can not fast draw with any accuracy with a weapon holstered on the hip low down on your dominant side.

 

In other words, if “bad guys” were to walk into Shooters Grill to kill, every last idiot armed with a weapon, they would all be dead.

Now this is a real gunslinger, and this is how real killers wear their side arms…..this ain’t for show.

 

 

This is an example of fools ready to die…….

 

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

This bullshit is clearly a marketing tool to get dumbass rednecks into this place of business….

So when in Rifle, Colorado…stop into Shooters Grill….where you’ll be safe cause good guys with guns hang out there.

Opportunity For All: My Brother’s Keeper Blueprint For Action.


 

By Jueseppi B.

my-brothers-keeper

 

 

President Barack Obama on Friday gets a status report on his My Brother’s Keeper Task Force.

 

My Brother’s Keeper Task Force report: “The My Brother’s Keeper Task Force was established to develop a coordinated Federaleffort to improve significantly the expected life outcomes for boys and young men of color (including Black Americans, Hispanic Americans, and Native Americans) and their contributions to U.S. prosperity, so that all youth have an equal opportunity at the American dream. It is important to note that there is significant diversity within and among these groups of the population. Differences of language status, income, disability, sexual orientation and many other factors influence the identity and  experience of these young people, just as any other population.”

 

The My Brother’s Keeper Initiative

 

Published on May 30, 2014

President Obama is taking action to launch My Brother’s Keeper — a new initiative to help every boy and young man of color who is willing to do the hard work to get ahead. Learn how you can get involved at http://whitehouse.gov/my-brothers-keeper

 

 

 

FACT SHEET & REPORT: Opportunity for All: My Brother’s Keeper Blueprint for Action

 

The My Brother’s Keeper Task Force Report to the President can be found HERE.

 

Over the past five years, the hard work and grit of the American people pulled our economy back from the brink of collapse.  We are now moving forward again.  But there is more work to do, and for decades opportunity has lagged behind for some, including millions of boys and young men of color.  Boys of color are too often born into poverty and live with a single parent.  And while their gains contributed to the national high school graduation rate reaching an all-time high, in some school districts dropout rates remain high.  Too many of these boys and young men will have negative interactions with the juvenile and criminal justice system, and the dream of a college education is within grasp for too few.  Our society can and will do more to help remove barriers to all young people’s success, because America prospers not only when hard work and responsibility are rewarded but also when we all pull forward together.

 

Rebuilding that core American value—community—is why the President launched My Brother’s Keeper, an initiative designed to determine what works to help young people stay on track to reach their full potential.

 

The Administration is doing its part by identifying programs and policies that work, and recommending action that will help all our young people succeed.  Since the launch of My Brother’s Keeper, the President’s Task Force has met with and heard from thousands of Americans, through online and in-person listening sessions, who are already taking action.  Cities and towns, businesses, foundations, faith leaders and individuals have made commitments to helping youth get a strong start in school and life and later connect them to mentoring, support networks and specialized skills they need to find a good job or go to college and work their way up into the middle class.  As President Obama has said, “We are stronger when America fields a full team.”

 

Today, the President met with his Cabinet to discuss the Task Force’s initial assessments and recommendations and the President called on the American people to get engaged through mentorship opportunities nationwide.

 

 

Call to Action

The President is calling on Americans interested in getting involved in My Brother’s Keeper to sign up as long-term mentors to young people at WH.gov/mybrotherskeeper.  This effort will engage Americans from all walks of life to sign up to develop sustained and direct mentoring relationships that will play vital roles in the lives of young people.

 

It is important that all children have caring adults who are engaged in their lives.  But too many young people lack this support.  For example, roughly two-thirds of Black and one-third of Hispanic children live with only one parent.   Moreover, research suggests that a father’s absence increases the risk of his child dropping out of school among Blacks and Hispanics by 75 percent and 96 percent respectively.  We see significant high school dropout rates—as high as 50 percent in some school districts—including among boys and young men from certain Southeast Asian and Pacific Islander populations. And some 27 percent of American Indians and Alaska Natives live in poverty, compared to 11.6% of White Americans.

 

Presidential Task Force 90-Day Report

As part of its 90-day report, the Task Force has identified a set of initial recommendations to the President, and a blueprint for action by government, business, non-profit, philanthropic, faith and community partners.

 

In developing its recommendations, the Task Force identified key milestones in the path to adulthood that are especially predictive of later success, and where interventions can have the greatest impact:

 

  1. Getting a healthy start and entering school ready to learn;
  2. Reading by third grade;
  3. Graduating from high school ready for college and career;
  4. Completing post-secondary education or training;
  5. Entering the workforce;
  6. Keeping kids on track and giving them second chances.

 

By focusing on these key moments, and helping our young people avoid roadblocks that hinder progress across life stages, we can help ensure that all children and young people have the tools they need to build successful lives.  Focused on areas of action that can improve outcomes at these key moments, the President’s Task Force today presented him with recommendations including:

 

Cross-Cutting Recommendations

  • Launch a public-private campaign to actively recruit mentors for youth and improve the quality of mentoring programs.
  • Make the status and progress of boys and young men of color and other populations more visible by improving data collection and transparency.

 

A Healthy Start and Ready for School

  • Eliminate suspensions and expulsions in preschool and other early learning settings.

 

Reading at Grade Level by the End of Third Grade

  • Close the word gap by launching a public and private initiative to increase joint and independent reading time outside of school and build a reading culture in more homes.

 

Graduating from High School

  • Increase focus on transforming the schools and districts producing the majority of the country’s dropouts.

 

Completing Post-Secondary Education or Training

  • Increase college completion by expanding students’ access to and successful completion of rigorous courses, such as Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate and dual enrollment options in high school.

 

Entering the Workforce

  • Increase awareness about youth summer employment and use of pre-apprenticeships as good entry-level jobs.

 

Reducing Violence and Providing a Second Chance

  • Institutionalize community oriented policing practices in the field and employ methods to address racial and ethnic bias within the juvenile and criminal justice systems.

 

The recommendations identified by the President’s Task Force mark the starting point of what must and will be a long-term effort.  The Task Force and public, private and philanthropic actors will continue to develop recommendations and support community solutions well beyond this 90-day progress report.

 

In addition to today’s announcements, in coming weeks and months, leading foundations will independently announce specific commitments to help ensure young people can succeed.  The following foundations will together seek to invest at least $200 million:  The Annie E. Casey Foundation, The Atlantic Philanthropies, Bloomberg Philanthropies, The California Endowment, The Ford Foundation, The John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, The Open Society Foundations, The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, The W.K. Kellogg Foundation, The Kapor Center for Social Impact, and the Nathan Cummings Foundation.
