“Pain for which we cannot forget falls drop by drop unto the heart; and in our despondency and against our will, come wisdom through the awesome grace of God.”

 

“Pain breaks not the calm of the sweet twilight of age, for strength made perfect in weakness bears up with patience under it all. Ripe fruits of choice experience are gathered as the rare repast of life’s evening, and the soul prepares itself for rest.

 

The Lord’s people shall also enjoy light in the hour of death. Unbelief laments; the shadows fall, the night is coming, existence is ending. Ah no, crieth faith, the night is far spent, the true day is at hand. Light is come, the light of immortality, the light of a Father’s countenance. Gather up thy feet in thy bed; see the waiting bands of spirits!

 

Angeles waft thee away. Farewell, beloved one, thou art gone, thou wavest thine hand. Ah, now it is light. The pearly gates are open, the golden streets shine in the jasper light. We cover our eyes, but thou beholdest the unseen, adieu, beloved, thou hast light at even-tide, such as we have not yet! AMEN!”

FAMILIES - EMPTY CHAIR - THANKSGIVING - 1

This Thanksgiving Say Thanks To GOP Haters Congress For Wasting Money On Benghazi And Other Senseless Hearings And For Doing Nothing But Obstructing, AMEN!

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 26, 2014 by sheriffali

This year, in a break from tradition, I am giving thanks for the House Intelligence Committee’s final report on Benghazi.

 

Also family and friends, but I give thanks for them every year. This is our first opportunity to be grateful for the House Intelligence Committee’s Benghazi report. So let’s jump at it.

 

Really, you don’t get good news like this all the time. The committee spent two years conducting a bipartisan investigation into the terrible night in 2012 when four Americans, including the Libyan ambassador, were killed in a violent attack on an American compound. It found that while mistakes were made, the Americans on the ground in Libya made reasonable decisions, as did the people trying to support them. The C.I.A. was brave and effective. Nobody in the White House thwarted a possible rescue or deliberately tried to mislead the public about what happened.

Appeals Court Throws Out Obamacare Lawsuit Similar To House GOP Suit [TPM]

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 24, 2014 by sheriffali

A federal appeals court threw out a lawsuit by a group of conservative doctors who sued the Obama administration for violating the Obamacare statute by delaying the employer mandate.

 

A three-judge panel on the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals on Friday unanimously affirmed a lower court decision that the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons lacked standing to sue because they failed to prove that the administration’s move would harm them.

 

“In a market economy everything is connected to everything else through the price system. To allow a long, intermediated chain of effects to establish standing is to abolish the standing requirement as a practical matter,” Judge Frank H. Easterbrook wrote for a three-judge panel of Republican appointees.

 

Notably, the lawsuit is similar to the one that the Republican-led House voted to authorize against Obama in July. GOP leaders say they plan to sue the president over the one-year delay of the employer mandate, although they’ve left some wiggle room to target another piece of Obamacare.

 

Legal experts say House Republicans will have a hard time achieving standing, which is required in order for the case to be heard on the merits. Their argument for standing is different, though, than the doctors’ claim: Republicans say Obama’s end-run around Congress threatens the separation of powers.

 

“The Supreme Court does not think that the Constitution’s structural features are open to litigation by persons who do not suffer particularized injuries,” Easterbrook wrote for the 7th Circuit panel.

 

The doctors association that brought the lawsuit said in 2011 its goal is “to fight socialized medicine and to fight the government takeover of medicine.” Prominent members have included former Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX) and current Rep. Tom Price (R-GA).

COURT OF APPEALS 7TH CIRCUIT NOV 21 14

A Tartar would be more at home on Cheapside than President Obama in the haunts of Republican Christian Hypocrites.

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 21, 2014 by sheriffali

President Obama’s speech seems to the Babylonian Republicans and their Followers among whom he dwells, an outlandish tongue, his manners are singular and his actions are strange.

 

Obama walks through the hypocritical, extremist Republican world as a pilgrim in a foreign land. He is a stranger in his own country. The Babylonian Republicans, have forgotten all he has done rescuing America from the derangement of; Bush, Cheney and the Republican Congress. They dishonor him, set up new laws and alien customs, suing him for reforming a broken Health Care System and know him not. Never was a Non-Foreigner so speckled a bird among the denizens of any land as Obama among his mother’s brethren. It is no marvel, then, he is unknown and a stranger here in his own land.

 

But here is the sweetness of his lot: He is a stranger with Thee. Thou art his fellow-sufferer, his fellow-pilgrim. Oh, what joy he feels to wander in such blessed society! His heart burns within him by the way when Thou dost speak to him, and though he be a sojourner, he is far more blest than those who sit in the Republican House,  Senate and the Governor’s Mansions, and far more at home than Republican Followers who dwell in their ceiled houses, like the Koch Brothers.  [Modification of Charles Spurgeon’s writing to express my vision of President Obama’s Predicament]

Republican Committee On Appropriations Cannot Defund President Obama’s Executive Order On Immigration, Even If The GOP Shut-Down The Government. [NYT]

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 20, 2014 by sheriffali

Here is the full statement from the House Appropriations Committee on its view that it could not deny funding to the agency responsible for carrying out executive action on immigration, which President Obama is to announce tonight:

 

“The primary agency for implementing the president’s new immigration executive order is the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). This agency is entirely self-funded through the fees it collects on various immigration applications. Congress does not appropriate funds for any of its operations, including the issuance of immigration status or work permits, with the exception of the ‘E-Verify’ program. Therefore, the appropriations process cannot be used to “defund” the agency. The agency has the ability to continue to collect and use fees to continue current operations, and to expand operations as under a new executive order, without needing legislative approval by the Appropriations Committee or the Congress, even under a continuing resolution or a government shutdown.”

 

Mr. Obama’s speech on immigration policy tonight will be praised by most Democrats and lambasted by most Republicans, who contend that Mr. Obama is abusing his authority to provide work permits to millions of undocumented immigrants.

 

But congressional opponents who believe the best way to block the president’s new initiative is to cut off government funds for it could be in for a severe disappointment.

 

Officials of the Republican-led House Appropriations Committee have concluded that the government agency most responsible for implementing any new executive order — Citizenship and Immigration Services — would not be hindered if government funds are cut off; it operates entirely on revenue it generates through immigration applications.

 

In short, lawmakers have no fiscal leverage over the agency, which could keep operating even if the rest of the government was shut down.

 

“Congress does not appropriate funds for any of its operations, including the issuance of immigration status or work permits, with the exception of the E-verify program,” the committee said in a statement. “Therefore the appropriations process cannot be used to ‘de-fund’ the agency.”

 

Republican congressional leaders acknowledge it could be politically disastrous for Republicans to engineer a shutdown just as they are about to take control of Congress.

 

Leaders of the Appropriations Committee say the best course is to act responsibly, pass a legislative package financing the government for the 2015 fiscal year and then find other ways to squeeze the administration when Republicans control the House and Senate, beginning in January.

 

The warning that a shutdown wouldn’t shut down the agency handling the new policy was meant to underscore that point. – [Carl Hulse NYT]

BARACK OBAMA - EXEC ORDER NOV 20 14 

 

 

On June 27, 2013 A Bipartisan Immigration Bill Passed The Senate By A 68-32 Margin And John Boehner Has Sat On The Bill To This Day, Refusing To Bring It To The Floor For An Up Or Down Vote. What Is The President Supposed To do?

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 19, 2014 by sheriffali

June 27, 2013 68 Senators, 54 Democrats And 14 Republicans Passed A Comprehensive Immigration Bill And Sent It To The House. To Date November 19, 2014, John Boehner Have Refused To Bring The Bill To The Floor For A Vote. The Reason Being Most Of The Extremists Republicans In The House Wouldn’t Vote For The Bill, Although There Are Enough Republicans That Would Join The Democrats And Pass The Bill.

 

And Now That President Obama Has Decided To Use His Inherently Executive Power As Stipulated In The Constitution To Take Action On Immigration Policy, Republicans Are using Phantasmagoric Rationales And Internecine Narcissism To Sway The President From Taking Action On Immigration.

 

Five Previous Presidents, Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford, Ronald Reagan, George Herbert Walker Bush And George W Bush Have Used Executive Powers On Immigration Policies.

 

It Is No Mystery That Because President Obama Is The One Utilizing The Executive Power As His Predecessors Is The Reason Why Republicans Have Gone Psycho.

 

Most Of The News Media Are Helping To Create Commotion Amongst The Public That Is Mostly Uninformed, By Questioning Mr. Obama’s Authority When In Fact They Are Aware Of The FACTS.

In Memory Of My Brother Jamal Ali Died Of Brain Tumor At Age 26, November 19. RIP

Beyond This World Of Wrath And Tears

 

In the clutch of pains that follow me

From my head down to my sole,

I wonder what life holds’ for me?

In the darkness of my world

 

 

Despite the pangs I would not complain

Even when I pine,

And though at times I feel disdain

I know, I am wholly Thine

 

 

Beyond this world of wrath and tears

Looms, but the Heavens’ above,

With freedom from pains or fears

And the bounty of my Father’s love

 

 

So, in the midst of my circumstance

In this blessed evening shade,

I’ll live by faith and not by chance

Strong in heart and unafraid!
