Obama's scandal updates: Russia, IRS, Immigration, VA and more

Obama moves deadline for Iran nuke deal past midterm elections  [I wonder what else he will move til after the election?  He seems to know that his preferred agenda will result in fewer Democrats being elected this November.  He is truly shameless.]   http://www.redstate.com/2014/ 07/20/obama-moves-deadline- iran-nuke-deal-past-midterm- elections/

Defiant Putin warns the West not to use MH17 tragedy for 'selfish political ends', as Ukraine accuses Russia of spiriting away shrapnel-hit bodies to avoid implicating rebels

In between fund-raising trips, the American President walked to the podium Monday and promised there would be consequences if the Russian president continued to make vicious mischief in the wake of a horrific mass murder that he almost surely aided and abetted.
He scolded the Russian-backed, Russian-trained and Russian-armed separatists, who have been busy “removing bodies from the crash site, oftentimes without the care that we would normally expect from a tragedy like this,” adding:  [Are you laughing out load as I am?  He calls this a tragedy, as if no one CAUSED it to happen, and then expects the thug terrorists who did this to actually use CARE in handling the aftermath!  You just can't make this stuff up!]
“This is the kind of behavior that has no place in the community of nations.” And he warned that, “If Russia continues to violate Ukraine’s sovereignty . . . the costs for Russia’s behavior will only continue to increase.”
The Russian president must have chuckled. Or rolled his eyes. The American President has made such pronouncements too many times before.  Read more: http://www.nydailynews.com/opinion/wages-weakness-article-1.1875079#ixzz38CVWX0fH

NAACP Legal Defense Fund: Detroit Water Service Shutoffs Were Racially Motivated 

[Gee, I wonder if it could possibly have anything to do with the fact that they were not paying their bills.]   http://detroit.cbslocal.com/2014/07/21/naacp-detroit-water-service-shutoffs-are-racially-motivated/



Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) believes Hispanics should get amnesty and citizenship to punish Americans who are against illegal immigration. 

After he told the La Raza conference in Los Angeles that President Barack Obama gave the Latino community a "down payment" with his temporary amnesty program that halted the deportations "of our people," Gutierrez urged Hispanics to seek retribution at the ballot box.

"We need to raise our voices, make ourselves citizens, sign up to vote and punish those who speak ill and criminalize children who come to our border," Gutierrez reportedly said in Spanish this weekend.  [I guess no longer must our elected Representatives actually follow our laws.]  http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2014/07/21/Luis-Gutierrez-to-La-Raza-Get-Amnesty-to-Punish-Americans-Against-Illegal-Immigration



What Emergency? CBO Says Just $25 Million of Obama’s $3.7 Billion Border Bill Would Be Spent This Summer

Sessions said some reports say Obama could create work permits for up to six million illegal residents, and said Congress should take a stand and refuse to allow any funding for this activity.  
Senate GOP staffers have noted in recent weeks that while the flood of just 60,000 children has led to billions in possible additional costs, the Senate-passed immigration bill would create millions of new green card opportunities for non-U.S. citizens — about 30 million over the next decade. Sessions noted that the Senate bill could allow almost every Central American family to enter the U.S. legally.
“President Obama’s illegal work permits add to the already-huge flow of lawful work permits issued by the federal government,” Sessions said.
