We need a Change...

Considering "Hope and Change have failed, we need to find our next President from those running against Mr Obama. Even liberal commentators, such as Maureen Dowd are turning against the President as they recognize his lack of ability...

Americans receiving food stamps were caught selling and bartering their benefits online for art, housing and cash, according to a new federal report that investigates fraud in the nation’s largest nutrition support program.

Complicating the situation is the fact states around the country are having trouble tracking and prosecuting the crimes because their enforcement budgets have been slashed despite the rapidly-rising number of food stamp recipients, according to the Government Accountability Office report.

Under the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or SNAP, 47 million people have been awarded $76 billion in benefits. State agencies are responsible for addressing SNAP recipient fraud under the guidance and monitoring of the Food and Nutrition Service.

This has to be stopped...anyone see a reason to change?

MIAMI (CBSMiami) — More than a thousand locals lined up Friday morning for several hours under the scorching sun and heat in Miami for a box full of food.

The event located at the Central Shopping Plaza at 3825 NW 7th Street started at 9:00 a.m.

Participants got a box of free vegetables, meats and bread worth $100 until 12:00 p.m.–or until supplies lasted.

Those who didn’t want to stand in line could wait in their car for the drive-thru portion of the event...the food ran out before they ever got the chance.

A result of a bad economy made worse through liberalism and too many illegals. Is this coming to your town?

People, we need to change!

Isn't it strange that atheists often become so turned off by a cross or nativity scenes or the Ten Commandments that they try to get them removed from public property, especially considering that they don’t believe that these religious symbols hold any merit.

They’re offended by something they don’t believe in? And, it offends over 90% of people of the country that they take the nativity scenes down, but apparently, the majority doesn’t have a voice in this country anymore.

Well, that must change!

The lies...can't the lies just stop?

Can't there be some honest people to elect?

Teenage criminals and gang members from Central America have been using “an Obama created loophole” to stay in the country, border agent Chris Cabrera revealed. Under current policy, unaccompanied minors are allowed to stay in the country if they have family in the United States and say they have none in their home country, regardless of their background.

“Even if he is a confirmed gang member, a confirmed criminal, even by self-admission, we for some reason don’t send them back to their home country — we release them into our country,” Cabrera said.

Minors usually end up staying in the U.S. “nine times out of ten,” he added.

As a result, Cabrera said “morale is at an all-time low right now” because agents are “not allowed to do the job that they were hired to do.”

Cabrera was reacting to a recent video of a Border Patrol agent lamenting that citizenship now seems to be irrelevant consideration at U.S. border crossings.

What shame this President has brought to our land.

Obama says he will use Executive action on immigration because "people do not want him standing around"...what people?

"Low marks for Obama on immigration reform", Justin Sink - 08/07/14 08:19 AM EDT: "Just 31 percent say they approve of how Obama has handled the issue, according to poll."

Just another lie! Will change come soon enough?

Yes indeed Kozy we need a change. A change back in how it used to be with the Salem news online. Soooooo boring now. Only the elite of Salem rule the news now the ones that can afford the high prices for the Salem news. Sheeeesh.

Haven't really read many here. Just trying out the comment section to see how that works here.

It looks like we can read all the post tho, unlike the news stories.

Of course, Vladimir Putin is supplying these heavy weapons to the terrorists so he is directly responsible. I bet you don't hear European leaders or President Obama say that but it's true. Russia is trying to undermine Ukraine and is giving weapons to killers. No question about it. So, over the next few days, you will hear Obama and other world leaders usual calls for investigations and meetings and talks and discussions. But little will happen to Putin. Because the west and especially Obama is essentially afraid of him and he knows it. Meantime, the families and friends of 298 human beings grieve tonight. Is Putin grieving?

Why are we not impeaching this man?

By a huge majority (independents, democrats and republicans) see the lies and lawlessness of the IRS and the Obama Justice Department says this...

A top Justice Department official on Thursday, 7/17/2014, brushed aside GOP requests for a special prosecutor to investigate the IRS’s treatment of Tea Party groups, saying the evidence didn’t warrant such a appointment.

“It is very, very rare to use a special prosecutor,” Deputy Attorney General James Cole told a House Oversight subcommittee, adding that he and Attorney General Eric Holder determined the IRS case "didn’t meet any sort of standard to warrant a special prosecutor."

And, yes you are seeing just another change in our wonderful country. Wake up people...we need a change!

And, what's going on while Obama enjoys three fundraisers:

1. ROCKET ATTACKS ON TEL AVIV... 2. Rocket Hits Jerusalem... 3. REPORT: Half of Country's Population - in Bomb Shelters... 4. Siren sounds... 5. VIDEO: Arabs Celebrate... 6. Top Obama official blasts Israel for denying Palestinians sovereignty, security, dignity...

Anyone know why Obama hasn't been impeached?

Poll after poll has charted President Obama’s dipping approval rating in recent months, but Wednesday brought perhaps the cruelest cut to date: A new Quinnipiac University survey found that voters rate Mr. Obama as the country’s worst president since WW2. The new poll also revealed that more voters now say GOP nominee Mitt Romney would have been a better choice in 2012.

Quinnipiac found 45% of voters say the country would have been better off if Mr. Romney had been elected, while just 38% say Mr. Obama remains a better choice. Even Democrats aren’t so sure...

Finally!

Nixon was a rank amateur compared to this President!

Posted 71 days ago.

The question of what Nixon knew about the break-in caused a national controversy when investigators discovered that 8 1/2 minutes were missing from the tapes.

Now there are two years of emails missing and a spokesman for the WH (Josh Earnest) says, questioning by democrats and republicans is "far-fetched" and "not particularly believable"...Really?

We must stand up and say enough already...they all must go a sap!

Is this the change you wanted?

“Word has gotten out around the world about President Obama’s lax immigration-enforcement policies and it has encouraged more people to come to the United States illegally, many of whom are children from Central America.”

Coming to America now means getting free citizenship, free health care, welfare benefits and even an Obamaphone. Illegal aliens crossing the border into Texas say news reports in their Central American homelands encourage them to risk the journey northward with the promise that if they make it to the U.S. border, they won’t be turned away.

Undeterred by the refusal of Congress to enact the Dream Act, Obama substituted an administrative equivalent in the form of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which is against the law and enables those who arrive illegally as children and are in school or the military to remain for two years, subject to renewal. Nearly 600,000 children have broken the law with the Obama admini

Change is coming because we're tired of a law breaking out of control Washington...

NBC's chief White House correspondent Chuck Todd pointed to a story originally broken about the U.S.-Mexican border being flooded with illegal immigrant children as the main reason behind the "perfect storm" that caused House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) to loss the GOP primary to Tea Party challenger Dave Brat.

Todd credited the grassroots anti immigration movement reaction to the story.

"We had this perfect storm of what is in the news at the moment," he said.

Brat campaigned against Cantor's version of the DREAM Act, to which Todd said, "What's the current crisis the border is dealing. It's been lighting up talk radio. You have an urgency to the issue."

More cheating and lies...

5/20/2014...New documents obtained and released through a Judicial Watch lawsuit show the targeting of tea party and conservative groups came directly out of Washington D.C., not a rogue IRS office in Cincinnati.

On July 6, 2012, former Director of the IRS Rulings and Agreements Division and current Manager of Exempt Organizations Guidance Holly Paz sent an email to IRS Attorney Steven Grodnitzky asking for an explanation of how tea party group applications were being handled. Grodnitzky responded by confirming the cases were being handled in Washington.

CHANGE? Conservatives need to wake up and start thinking past the rapidly passing age of Obama. Increasingly likely every day is that voters this November will remove Harry Reid as Senate Majority Leader. By electing a new Republican Senate majority, the voters will also render Barack Obama a lame duck, one of the lamest in history, as he will have no prayer of getting any of his legislative proposals — increasingly recognized as hard left — through Congress. (Despite his early national rhetoric, Obama doesn’t do bipartisanship.)

Given the long-term cycles of American political history, Obama’s second midterm this year should be even worse for Democrats than the disastrous Obama first midterm in 2010. And the polls are bearing out that possibility.

The latest is a Pew/USA Today poll finding that 47% favor the Republican candidate for Congress in their district or state, while 43% favor the Democrat.
