5 Senators Who Support Immigration Bill Don't Know Answer to Key Question About It

5 Senators Who Support Immigration Bill Don't Know Answer to Key Question About It | PoliticsinAmerica | Scoop.it
Obamacare poses a tricky problem for supporters of the Senate's comprehensive immigration reform bill.
Scott Bergman's insight:

This to me is criminal. 1200 pages of a bill that could contain absolutely anything and our congress just wants to pass it willy nilly without even so much as reading it. I don't even want to think about what new laws are being passed within this bill that nobody but it's crafters know about.

Obama mocks skeptics of climate change as ‘flat-Earth society’ - The Hill's Blog Briefing Room

Obama mocks skeptics of climate change as ‘flat-Earth society’ - The Hill's Blog Briefing Room | PoliticsinAmerica | Scoop.it
President Obama angrily blasted climate change skeptics during his energy policy speech Tuesday at Georgetown University, saying he lacked patience for anyone who denies that this problem is real.
Scott Bergman's insight:

Obama is full of shit! There is no such thing as global warming. In fact, the planet has been cooling. This global warming scam is nothing more than a way for certain groups to get richer, while you get poorer.

N.S.A. Leaker Leaves Hong Kong on Flight to Moscow | PoliticsinAmerica | Scoop.it
The final destination remains unclear for Edward J. Snowden, who left after Hong Kong said a U.S. request for an arrest warrant did not meet legal requirements.
Scott Bergman's insight:

Kinda sounds like Hong Kong said to hell with what the United States Government wants. While what Snowden did was wrong, I'm not terribly saddened to see him get away from the long arm of American law.

White House defends high bills for Africa trip | PoliticsinAmerica | Scoop.it
The White House Friday defended the first family’s upcoming weeklong trip to Africa, which could cost taxpayers up to $100 million, as “great bang for our buck.”
Scott Bergman's insight:

There is no defense for expenses like these, not at a time when the debt is so high and many americans are struggling. It's nothing more than Obama milking the american people for everything were worth, and I'm sure there will be plenty more trips over the next couple of years.

U.S. border agents should continue to be allowed to search a traveler's laptop, cellphone or other electronic device and keep copies of any data on them based on no more than a hunch, according to an internal Homeland Security Department study.
Scott Bergman's insight:

I guess I wasn't aware it was the job of DHS to look for child pornographers. Anyway...lets not let a constitutional right to privacy keep DHS from going through our things based on a hunch!

Legislation Preventing Employers From Asking for Facebook Passwords Defeated

Legislation Preventing Employers From Asking for Facebook Passwords Defeated | PoliticsinAmerica | Scoop.it
An amendment that would have prevented employers from asking for Facebook passwords was defeated Thursday.
Scott Bergman's insight:

This is something that should have passed easily with bipartisan support. There is no reason employers need access to anybodies password protected personal information on Facebook or any other social media network, unless your applying for a job that requires a security clearance or perhaps a law enforcement position.

Howard Student To Rand Paul: "I Want A Government That Is Going To Help Me" | RealClearPolitics

Howard University student to Sen. Rand Paul: "I want a government that is gonna help me. I want a government that is gonna help me fund my college education..." (via MFP
Scott Bergman's insight:

I want a government that is going to stay out of my life and out of my business. The best help the government could give is to do what it was intedned to do and stop playing Robin Hood. You have no entitlement to other peoples money. You can damn well bet that if the Government stopped giving out student loans, it wouldn't be long before the price of education dropped considerably. It's all part of the price and demand equation.

Every single federal official that supports a plan for a total gun ban needs to be impeached and removed from office for failing to uphold the oath of their office, which is to support and defend the constitution of th United States.

Obama budget to take aim at wealthy IRAs - The Hill's On The Money | PoliticsinAmerica | Scoop.it
President Obama’s budget, to be released next week, will limit how much wealthy individuals – like Mitt Romney – can keep in IRAs and other retirement accounts.
Scott Bergman's insight:

Obama is always after the people who have made great sacrifices to become wealthy. The idea is to encourage people to stay broke and dependant on the government. Dependant people make good slaves/sheep, but will alwways live in a life of poverty.

Hillary Clinton: The clock is turning back for women in America | WashingtonExaminer.com | PoliticsinAmerica | Scoop.it
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explained to the Women in the World summit in New York today that the clock is turning back for women in America.
Scott Bergman's insight:

Oh Hillary, and who's turning the clock back? Oh that's right, the Obama administration, the administration you worked for in the last four years. The same administration that lacks leadership on 99% of issues Americans care about. So I suppose now you are going to come to their rescue in 2016? You are one rotten evil bitch Hillary! If women want rights they should consider Sarah Palin!

As the Pentagon flies B-2 bombers over the Korean Peninsula and strengthens its missile-defense posture in the region, U.S.
Scott Bergman's insight:

Let me get this straight, the U.S., as in Obama/Kerry are trying to work diplomatic channels. We should probably all learn to speak North Korean, because they (obama/Kerry) are bound to surrender to them.

Morsi reportedly being held hours after being ousted as Egypt's president | PoliticsinAmerica | Scoop.it
Egypt teetered on the brink of overthrow Wednesday after a defiant Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi rejected an ultimatum issued by the military and at least 23 people were reported killed in clashes between his supporters and opponents.
Scott Bergman's insight:

I would guess Obama is on Air Force One curled up in the fetal position sucking his thumb now that the Muslem Brother hood has been overthrown. Must be a harsh blow to his plans.

US officials challenge Putin over Snowden claims, push for extradition

US officials challenge Putin over Snowden claims, push for extradition | PoliticsinAmerica | Scoop.it
Russia's foreign minister said Tuesday that American demands for the extradition of NSA leaker Edward Snowden were ungrounded and unacceptable, ratcheting up the stand-off between the two countries over the globetrotting fugitive. ...
Scott Bergman's insight:

It's funny how the US Government downplays the importance of whatever Snowden's role was with the NSA, but yet not only does he have 4 laptops loaded with highly classified data (allegedly), but he certainly seems to know how to play the spook game quite well!

Scott Bergman's insight:

So this kind of shows where Michelle Obama's real priorities lie... make-up and fashion. Sad thing is she needs more make-up than is currently available world-wide and her kind of fashion can be found in any walmart store.

Former first daughter Chelsea Clinton says it's time for a woman in the Oval Office, music to her mom Hillary Clinton's ears.
Scott Bergman's insight:

NO, we don't need a woman in the Whitehouse. Women tend to make decisions not based in fact, they have no interest in learning the facts. Most carry way to much  emotional baggage. AND, we certainly don't need another Clinton in the Whitehouse.

President Obama will take the political risk next week of presenting a budget plan that proposes cuts to Social Security and Medicare, in an effort to compromise with Republicans.
Scott Bergman's insight:

NO NEW TAXES. If you don't have enough money cut the give-aways. We the people are tired of being slaves to the elite few that run this country not as representatives, but as people elected and pushing their own will on the people, not unlike the North Korean leadership does on their people.
