    Obama signs bill to grant Nigerian student U.S. permanent residency

    (CNN) — A Nigerian immigrant’s dream came true when President Barack Obama signed into law a rare private bill granting him permanent residency in the Unites States.

    Victor Chukwueke, who lives in Michigan on an expired visa, came to the United States 11 years ago to undergo treatment for massive face tumors.

    He graduated from a university in the state, and plans to attend an Ohio medical school that requires him to have permanent residency, also known as a green card.

    In a rare act, the United States Congress passed a private bill this month granting him permanent residency. Obama signed the bill Friday.

    Those pictures capture why for me this is my favorite political moment of 2012. It’s the moment President Obama serves notice to Mitt that he is not and will never be on his level. Also at the DNC when they broke out the video of Sen. Kennedy sonning Mitt back in the day.

    Lots of good smackdowns throughout 2012, but Ben Labolt’s pimpslap of Buzzfeed was definitely noteworthy!

    Asked to comment on Buzzfeed’s completely Fox-tacular story on how the Obama campaign was using the commie-friendly Revolution Gothic typeface for its “Betting on America” sign, Obama Press Secretary Ben LaBolt responded as follows regarding the implication that this was some sort of homage to Cuban revolutionaries:

    “Your GOP operative should have had the courtesy to stay sober before noon, and BuzzFeed should go back to labeling cat slideshows.”

        – — –On January 10, 1957, following the Montgomery Bus Boycott victory and consultations with Bayard Rustin, Ella Baker, and others, Dr. King invited about 60 black ministers and leaders to Ebenezer Church in Atlanta. Prior to this, however, Bayard Rustin (in New York City), having conceived the idea of initiating such effort, first sought Rev. C. K. Steele to make the call and take the lead role. C. K. Steele declined, but told him he would be glad to work right beside him if he sought Dr. King in Montgomery, for the role. Their goal was to form an organization to coordinate and support nonviolent direct action as a method of desegregating bus systems across the South. In addition to Rustin and Baker, Rev. Fred Shuttlesworth of Birmingham, Rev Joseph Lowery of Mobile, Rev Ralph Abernathy of Montgomery, Rev C.K. Steele of Tallahassee, all played key roles in this meeting.[2]

        — THIS was QUITE A CONTROVERSY: – ->On October 30, 2009, Elder Bernice King, Dr. King’s youngest child, was elected SCLC’s new president, with Rev. Dr. James Bush III taking office in February 2010 as Acting President/CEO until Elder King took office. However, on January 21, 2011, fifteen months after her election, Elder King declined the position of president. In a written statement, she said that her decision came “after numerous attempts to connect with the official board leaders on how to move forward under my leadership, unfortunately, our visions did not align.”[23]

    – — -Report: Current Congress Most Unproductive In History – — –

    – ——The next time your boss complains that employees are simply not getting the job done, remind them it could always be worse; they could be in charge of Congress.

    According to the Huffington Post, the current 112th Congress will go down as the most unproductive session since the 1940’s. Not only that, but the 112th Congress will capture the dubious distinction by a very wide margin.

    The Huffington Post reported the 104th Congress (1995-1996) holds the record for fewest bills to become law over a two year period at 333. For comparison, with a week to go in the 112th Congress, just 219 bills have become law.

    That means more than 100 would have to make it to the president’s desk in less than a week to keep the current Congress from taking the title of “Do-Nothing Congress.”
    – — -SNIP – —

    The partisanship in both the House of Representatives and the Senate has become so ridiculous that Senator McConnell was the first person in history to ever filibuster his own bill earlier in December because Democrats were going to support his plan to give the president more power over the debt ceiling.

    In a letter to congressional leaders on Saturday, Obama cited the “deteriorating security situation” in the Central African Republic and the threat to U.S. citizens.

    U.S. embassy personnel and several private U.S. citizens were evacuated from the Central African Republic capital of Bangui on Thursday.

    Obama said the “stand-by security force” was deployed for the sole purpose of protecting U.S. citizens and property.

    Michelle Obama on the campaign trail and giving media interviews was a beautiful, calm, sane, brilliant, genuine, focused, magnificently savvy thing to behold.

    Check out this vid with Cynthia Mcffaden trying her darndest to trip up our Michelle. The beckie failed woefully.

    The video starts with a set up clip of President Obama being interviewed by Diane Sawyer after the first debate; it then goes on to Cynthia trying to set up her report on Mrs Obama portraying her as “anxious” since “everything is on the line”.
