Because Congress Didn’t IMMEDIATELY Clean Up the Humongous Mess Obama Created, Obama Now Argues He Should Be Granted Almost Limitless Power.

Dark-Lord-Obama 500x200

The White House is crafting a blame-it-on-Congress legal justification to back up President Barack Obama’s impending executive actions on immigration.

Facing an expected onslaught of opposition, the administration plans to argue that Congress failed to provide enough resources to fully enforce U.S. laws, thereby ceding wide latitude to White House to prioritize deportations of the 11.5 million people who are in the country illegally, administration officials and legal experts said. But Republicans, too, are exploring their legal options for stopping Obama from what they’ve deemed egregious presidential overreaching.

A self-imposed, end-of-summer deadline to act on immigration is rapidly approaching. While Obama has yet to receive the formal recommendations he’s requested from Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson, administration officials said the president is intimately familiar with the universe of options and won’t spend much time deliberating once Johnson delivers his recommendations.

After resisting calls to act alone in hopes Congress would pass a comprehensive immigration fix, Obama in June bowed to immigration activists and said that “if Congress will not do their job, at least we can do ours.” The most sweeping, controversial step under consideration involves halting deportation for millions, a major expansion of a 2012 Obama program that deferred prosecutions for those brought here illegally as children.

Texas School District Finally Arms Teachers

armed-teachers-500x200

A school district outside Dallas will reportedly continue to allow some teachers to carry guns in school, and posted signs on school campuses warning that teachers “may use whatever force is necessary to protect our students.”

Argyle ISD teachers will continue to be allowed to be armed on campus under the state’s Protection of Texas Children Act.

The report said these gun-toting teachers are required to have a handgun license, pass a psychological test and go through emergency response training.

“I trust that the administrators of this school district will put my kid’s best interest at heart,” one parent told the station.

Argyle ISD Superintendent, Dr. Telena Wright says that continuous training is required, and some training even took place over summer break. However, the names and number of pistol-packing teachers will not be released for safety reasons.

Signs warning visitors that staff members could be armed will go up at the district’s three campuses beginning Monday and the policy will take effect next week, Argyle Superintendent Telena Wright said Wednesday.

Perpetually Offended Atheists Outraged That Football Players Prayed For Injured Teammate

The injured player was on the ground being tended to by trainers and coaches.

So the Seminole High School football team did what many football teams do. The teenage boys took a knee, bowed their heads and prayed for their injured teammate.

But that simple act of compassion and humanity in Sanford, Florida sparked outrage from the Freedom From Religion Foundation – a group of perpetually offended atheists from Wisconsin.

While prayers among students are allowed, the Freedom From Religion Foundation contacted the Seminole County School’s superintendent this week, accusing Seminole High School of having a volunteer chaplain lead the team in prayer. The foundation said it got complaints from parents.

The football team’s head coach, Kerry Wiggins, is the father of the injured player and an ordained minister.

“What we do have a problem with is if the school is allowing a chaplain to come in and say ‘okay, kids, now it’s time for us to pray,’” said Andrew Seidel, and attorney for the foundation.

School officials said they don’t employ chaplains, and prohibit any employees, including coaches, from leading prayer.

They say in this case, students were praying on their own.

Parents, meanwhile, are a bit perturbed with the atheist bullying.

New ‘Reality’ Show Challenges Contestants to Balance the US Budget

big bad budget 500x200

PR professional and creator Tom Carroll is testing the concept of politics reality TV with a lead-off “reality film” called “Big Bad Budget.” Carroll distributed it to public television stations over the summer, and hopes it’ll be the first in a series.

He claims the show could “rewrite the rules of American politics” — despite the fact that all the decisions would, of course, be hypothetical.

Here’s the set-up: Carroll and his team took eight ordinary people from Albuquerque, N.M., and challenged them to balance the federal budget in a single weekend. The group, made up of four Republicans, three Democrats and one Democrat-leaning independent, was forced to fight it out until they came up with a way to solve Washington’s biggest head-scratcher.

Spoiler alert: the group was able to balance the budget.
