http://www.JewishWorldReview.com | The Justice Department handed in its homework on time to the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals Thursday. The administration had to write a three-page paper admitting that the Supreme Court can overturn laws passed by Congress. That was the only statement in the paper, but it ran three pages because they were required to write it three hundred times.
President Obama withdrew his statement that the Supreme Court lacks authority to toss out ObamaCare. It's a strategic retreat. Last night Obama was overheard on a hot mike telling Russia's ambassador that the Constitution isn't in effect during a second term.
France's Tourism Ministry was caught trying to lure British tourists to France using ad photos of a beach in South Africa. They'll always draw tourists. The Louvre shows more breasts than any museum in the world except for the Bill Clinton Presidential Library.
President Obama warned Thursday if the Supreme Court overturned his health care law seniors and poor people might not get their prescription drugs. It made a lot of people concerned. Anyone who says laughter is the best medicine has never taken Vicodin.
Homeland Security announced a relaxed immigration policy Friday allowing illegal aliens to stay in the U.S. without being deported. An administration spokesman said you can't simply move twelve million people to another country. That's not true, Mexico did it.
President Obama addressed AP editors in Washington Tuesday and blamed his woes on the bad economy he inherited from President Bush. That's undignified. You'll never hear President Bush complain about the presidency that he inherited from President Bush.
North Korea vowed to go ahead with its long-range missile launch of a satellite into orbit Thursday risking U.S. reprisal. Long-range missiles are no longer necessary to destroy another nation. You just borrow money from the country and refuse to pay it back.
The Agriculture Department warned Friday that the U.S. faces a shortage of younger farmers. The secretary told reporters the average age of a farmer in New Mexico, Texas and Arizona is nearly sixty. The department should have factored in California where thanks to its perfect growing climate for marijuana the average age of a farmer is fifteen.
