WATCH How Judge Napolitano Just Nuked Obama’s Pro-Amnesty Argument As ‘Weird, Bizarre’

Judge Napolitano

One week after a federal judge in Texas blocked implementation of President Obama’s executive amnesty orders, the administration officially asked that same judge to admit his injunction was wrong and to issue a stay on his own decision.

Judge Andrew Hanen ruled that allowing Obama’s unilateral action to defer deportations for millions of illegal immigrants to proceed would cause “irreparable harm” to the states.

Obama’s lawyers on Monday shot back that blocking the president’s amnesty orders would cause “irreparable harm” to the federal government’s effort to do its duty. Part of that supposed duty, as Judge Andrew Napolitano notes about the administration’s position, is to help illegal immigrants to get Social Security numbers and work visas, as Obama has repeatedly promised he would.

“The government wants to break the law so it can help other law breakers stay here,” [Napolitano] stated. “I have never heard the government make an argument like that.”

BREAKING: Watch Obama’s VA Chief Caught On Cam In A Huge Whopper: President Does What?

President Obama tapped Robert McDonald to take the reins of the deeply troubled Veterans Administration last July to clean up the dysfunctional organization and polish its image.

Now, in a startling twist of fate, Obama’s VA Secretary has his own image to be concerned about.

Multiple news sources, including Fox News, are reporting on a fresh scandal at the embattled Department of Veterans Affairs, where Secretary McDonald has just issued an apology for lying about his military service…lying to a homeless veteran.

The CBS Evening News caught on camera an exchange between the VA chief and a down-and-out, black veteran on a sidewalk in Los Angeles. McDonald was in LA as part of the VA’s outreach to veterans living on the streets.

On the CBS report, the disheveled vet is seen telling McDonald that he was in special forces during his military service…to which McDonald quickly replied that he, too, was in special forces.

But he wasn’t. The head of Obama’s VA — in an apparent attempt to ingratiate himself with the homeless vet and play to the news camera that was following him around — claimed to be something he never was.

A report on The Blaze credits The Huffington Post with outing the secretary’s lie in an article that quoted McDonald as saying he was wrong and had “no excuse” for wrongly claiming he was in special forces.

The VA boss did complete Army Ranger training but reportedly never actually served in a special forces unit.

The Fox News piece on the latest VA scandal notes that the White House released a statement Monday night saying they accepted McDonald’s explanation of his “misstatement” and that he never intended to lie about his military career.

“‘Secretary McDonald has apologized for the misstatement and noted that he never intended to misrepresent his military service,’ the statement said.”

Scandals Revealed: Neil Cavuto Admits It’s All Fox News’ Fault

Neil Cavuto

Fox News host Neil Cavuto, on his show Your World, jumped on the Obama Administration for their fondness of only criticizing Fox News. According to Cavuto, Obama’s administration ritually despises Fox News and makes a point to say so to the media.

He then launched into a sarcastic tirade on the administration’s claim that Fox would have nothing to talk about if they weren’t perpetuating potentially damning information.

“Pick a crisis, any crisis, you name it. Fox News is behind it,” Cavuto said. “Worse yet, Fox News created it. And I’m here to admit the White House ain’t telling you the half of it. How clever we are, how devious we are. If only I had known that you had known.”

Cavuto spilled the beans on everything and cited Fox News as the culprit “every time.” He joked that the cold weather, the measles outbreak, natural disasters, and even the JFK assassination was Fox News’ fault.

He even blamed the sinking of the Titanic on his employer because the captain of the ship resembles Rupert Murdoch.

“So Rupert Murdoch with a beard, don’t you think?” Cavuto joked.

Breaking: Obama’s Arrogant, Combative VA Chief Draws Vets’ Fire For Outrageous Comments

“I’ve run a large company, sir. What have you done?” That’s how President Obama’s latest Secretary of Veterans Affairs got in the face of a Colorado congressman during a tense and combative hearing on Wednesday.

VA chief Robert McDonald, the former CEO of retail giant Procter & Gamble, was tapped by Obama last summer to take over and try to clean up the embattled agency that serves millions of American war veterans.

According to a report on Fox News, McDonald thought it appropriate to do verbal battle with Rep. Mike Coffman, R-Colo., after the frustrated congressman pressed the secretary about cost overruns and construction delays at a troubled VA hospital in Denver.

That’s when Secretary McDonald stepped in it. Displaying a shocking degree of arrogance and defensiveness, he defiantly challenged the congressman’s qualifications for making the probing inquiry.

Obama’s guy apparently didn’t realize that the lawmaker he tried to put down actually has quite an impressive resume as the only member of Congress to serve in both Iraq Wars.

Now another Iraq War veteran, Pete Hegseth, head of the group Concerned Veterans for America, is demanding that VA Secretary McDonald apologize not only to Rep. Coffman but also to the many military service members who are still not getting the VA treatment they deserve.

By clicking on the video above, you can watch the fiery exchange during the congressional hearing that lead to Hegseth’s appearance on “Fox and Friends.”

WATCH Dr. Ben Carson React To Major Smackdown For The Lib Group That Attacked Him

In just one day, supporters of Dr. Ben Carson scored a major victory over an ultra-liberal organization that had smeared Dr. Carson as an “extremist” who appealed to hate groups.

Responding to “intense criticism,” the far-left Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) has removed Ben Carson from its so-called “extremist” watch list, while still criticizing Dr. Carson for his outspoken defense of traditional marriage.

In a statement on its website, the SPLC even apologized to the potential 2016 GOP presidential contender:

In October 2014, we posted an “Extremist File” of Dr. Ben Carson. This week, as we’ve come under intense criticism for doing so, we’ve reviewed our profile and have concluded that it did not meet our standards, so we have taken it down and apologize to Dr. Carson for having posted it.

As Western Journalism reported a few days ago, the celebrated neurosurgeon, best-selling author and conservative commentator had been labelled an “extremist” by the SPLC because “right-wing and hate groups” supported his stand against gay marriage.

In an appearance on Fox News’ “O’Reilly Factor,” Dr. Carson discussed the SPLC’s flip-flop after a flood of outrage hit the Center for its inclusion of the soft-spoken Ben Carson on its watch list.

By clicking on the video above, you can see the “Factor” segment in which Dr. Carson thanked the many people who spoken up in his behalf.
