More criminals out in the streets equals more voters for the Democrats.

From Fox News:

The top U.S. immigration enforcement official acknowledged Thursday that the Obama administration has in fact released thousands of illegal immigrants from local jails over the last month despite prior claims that the release was only in the hundreds.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement Director John Morton, at a House appropriations subcommittee hearing, said the agency released a total of 2,228 illegal immigrants from local jails “throughout the country” between Feb. 9 and March 1 for “solely budgetary reasons.”

Morton is so bad that the ICE union gave him a vote of no confidence for his failure to enforce immigration laws.

For the first time, he explained the kinds of detainees that were sprung from local jails — he said they included detainees held on theft charges, financial criminals and drunken drivers.

“In some cases, multiple DUIs,” Morton acknowledged. He also said 10 individuals labeled as “Level 1” offenders — the most serious classification — were released, but that four have since been brought back into custody. That category can include assault cases but Morton said the detainees were mostly in for financial offenses.

Morton stressed that the releases were made on a case-by-case basis and not “willy-nilly.”

“There are no mass releases of dangerous criminals under way or any plan for the future,” he said.

Team Obama lied…as usual…as they claimed they were not releasing criminals back onto the street…

[…]But Morton’s acknowledgement that more than 2,000 were released appeared to conflict with prior claims from the administration, which said it was only releasing hundreds.

The Associated Press first reported March 1 that the administration had released more than 2,000 illegal immigrants since at least Feb. 15 and planned to release 3,000 more in March due to looming budget cuts, but Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said days later that the AP’s report was “not really accurate” and that the story had developed “its own mythology.”

“Several hundred are related to sequester, but it wasn’t thousands,” Napolitano said March 4 at a Politico-sponsored event.

As most suspected. Obama showing up at an event to showcase the southern part of the Keystone Pipeline was just a photo-op to trick stupid Americans who believe anything he says.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Jobs numbers and other benefits touted by supporters of the Keystone XL oil pipeline are probably exaggerated, President Barack Obama told House Republicans on Wednesday, according to lawmakers who attended the closed-door meeting.

But Obama did not rule out a decision to approve the $7 billion pipeline, according to participants.

Obama told Republicans at the Capitol that he’s still weighing a decision on the pipeline, which would carry oil from western Canada to refineries along the Texas Gulf Coast.

Really? Since when has Obama cared about jobs, temporary jobs or part-time jobs. Most of the jobs created have been part-time under his presidency. Obama wants higher energy and gas prices. Both are more expensive since he took over and both are skyrocketing which is his goal. He’s not worried about jobs or concerned with getting America free from Muslim oil. Nothing but a photo-op presidency.

Doesn't want the truth to get out

Doesn’t want the truth to get out

The attack on our free press and free speech continues. This is the same group who locked a reporter in the closet and who demanded that reporters not live tweet Biden’s comments due to his tendency to say really stupid things.

From Capital News Service:

Vice President Joe Biden’s press secretary apologized to a Capital News Service reporter and the Philip Merrill College of Journalism Wednesday after a press office staffer demanded the reporter delete photos taken at an event in Rockville.

The reporter, a credentialed member of the press who is a student at the University of Maryland, College Park, was covering a domestic violence event featuring Biden, Attorney General Eric Holder and Maryland Sen. Ben Cardin.

The apology came shortly after a formal complaint was filed with the Vice President’s press office by Lucy A. Dalglish, dean of the Philip Merrill College of Journalism at the University of Maryland. Capital News Service is a student-staffed news service operated by the college. (Read Dalglish’s letter)

“This was pure intimidation,” Dalglish said, adding that “it’s clear from the circumstance that the journalist did nothing wrong.”

My goal all along was to separate you from you $$$.

My goal all along was to separate you from your $$$ so I can spend it on my base.

So much for Obama’s false claim that if you like  your insurance plan you get to keep it. Soon insurance companies will stop offering Medicare Advantage plans due to costs. This will force many onto the government exchanges so its a win-win for Team Obama. Doctors will also stop accepting Medicare Advantage patients do to low payment reimbursements.

(CNSNews.com) – The Obama administration is planning new cuts to Medicare, a federal regulatory filing reveals, cuts that could mean higher premiums or seniors losing their coverage altogether.

The new cuts come in the form of a planned reduction in the reimbursement rates the government pays to insurance companies that operate Medicare Advantage plans, which are services administered by private for-profit or non-profit providers that offer additional services than can be found in traditional Medicare.

In a Feb. 15 regulatory filing, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) announced the surprised rate cuts of 2.3 percent – meaning it would pay health care providers 2.3 percent less for providing services to patients.

CMS said it was cutting payments because it foresaw the overall costs of the Medicare Advantage program shrinking by 3.2 percent, despite the fact that health care costs – the driver of all federal health care program costs – are only rising.

One has authorized killing Americans with drones and the other didn't

One has authorized killing Americans with drones and the other didn’t

He’s right. Cheney didn’t have a secret kill list and Cheney never authorized the killing of American citizens via drone. The Nobel Peace Prize-winning President did these things.

From Politico:

President Barack Obama’s defense to Democratic senators complaining about how little his administration has told Congress about the legal justifications for his drone policy: Dick Cheney was worse.

Cheney never ordered the targeted killings via drones of US citizens without due process. Obama did that!

That’s part of what two senators in the room recounted of Obama’s response when, near the outset of his closed-door session with the Senate Democratic conference on Tuesday, Sen. Jay Rockefeller (D-W.Va.) confronted the president over the administration’s refusal for two years to show congressional intelligence committees Justice Department Office of Legal Counsel memos justifying the use of lethal force against American terror suspects abroad.

That is what “transparency” is under the Obama regime.

Obama recently allowed members of those panels to see the memos, but only after senators in both parties threatened to hold up the confirmation of John Brennan as Central Intelligence Agency director. Brennan was confirmed last week, but lawmakers not on one of the intelligence panels are still being denied access to the memos and several are steamed over being frozen out.

In response to Rockefeller’s critique, Obama said he’s not involved in drafting such memos, the senators told POLITICO. He also tried to assure his former colleagues that his administration is more open to oversight than that of President George W. Bush, whom many Democratic senators attacked for secrecy and for expanding executive power in the national security realm.
