Just to be clear aboutDHS "shutdown" is a slowdown only :

If DHS Shutdown Comes, Most Employees Would Still Report to Work
By Eric Katz
December 5, 2014
...
Shutdown precedent allows two types of federal employees to continuing working while there is a lapse in appropriations at their agencies: exempted employees, whose salaries are paid for by non-appropriated funds; and excepted employees, who are “performing emergency work involving the safety of human life or the protection of property.”

These rules shielded DHS from most of the effects of the two-week government shutdown in 2013. About 86 percent of DHS employees reported to work despite the appropriations lapse. About 31,000 of DHS’ employees were furloughed during last year’s shutdown, while nearly 200,000 worked their regular schedules. The disruption would certainly be felt at the agency enough to affect daily operations, but the impact would be relatively minimal and would not likely influence Obama’s action.

Jeh-hhhh Johnson threatens Americans with terrorist attack if DHS funding bill is passed:

http://cnsnews.com/news/article/susan-jones/dhs-secretary-warns-dhs-bill-comes-if-anyone-planning-go-mall
(CNSNews.com) - Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson went on the Sunday talk shows to demand that Republicans fund the Department of Homeland Security without blocking money for President Obama's executive amnesty plan.
...
"I would say that, if anyone is planning to go to the Mall of America today, they have got to be particularly careful. And, as the statement you read indicates, there will be enhanced security there that will be apparent to people who are there," Johnson told CNN's "State of the Union" with Gloria Borger.
...
According to CNN, DHS officials began "walking back" Johnson's warning after he appeared on the Sunday shows.

A spokesman for DHS told CNN the agency "is not aware of any specific credible plot against the Mall of America or any other domestic commercial shopping center."

Obama Dares GOP: Go Ahead, ‘Have a Vote on Whether What I’m Doing Is Legal…I Will Veto’
By Craig Bannister | 3 hours ago

Obama argued that he has merely “expanded my authorities” – not broken any laws:

“What we’ve done is we’ve expanded my authorities under executive action and prosecutorial discretion as far as we can legally under the existing statute, the existing law.  And so now the question is, how can we get a law passed.”

Obama, first lady flew on separate planes to L.A. on same day
Dave Boyer - The Washington Times - Friday, March 13, 2015



Taxpayers paid for President Obama and first lady Michelle Obama to fly separately Thursday to Los Angeles, where they appeared on separate TV talk shows on the same day.

Mr. Obama flew on Air Force One, which costs about $228,000 per hour of flight time, to appear on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Thursday night in Los Angeles.

Meanwhile, Mrs. Obama flew on a different plane Thursday across country to Burbank, California, to tape an appearance on Ellen Degeneres‘ show. That show will be broadcast on Monday.

White House deputy press secretary Eric Schultz told reporters Friday that the president and first lady’s “schedules were not in sync in order to travel together.”

Mandatory voting - Stalin would be proud ...

Obama: Maybe it's time for mandatory voting
By Holly Yan, CNN
Updated 10:07 AM ET, Thu March 19, 2015


(CNN)—The president whose major policy achievement is mandatory health insurance thinks maybe voting should be mandatory, too.

Asked how to offset the influence of big money in politics, President Barack Obama suggested it's time to make voting a requirement.

"Other countries have mandatory voting," Obama said Wednesday in Cleveland, where he spoke about the importance of middle class economics, and was asked about the issue during a town hall.

"It would be transformative if everybody voted -- that would counteract money more than anything," he said, adding it was the first time he had shared the idea publicly.
...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Compulsory_voting


Enforced[edit]

These are the 11 countries that enforce compulsory voting:
Argentina – Introduced in 1912.[17] Compulsory for citizens between 18 and 70 years old, non-compulsory for those older than 70 and between 16 and 18. (However in primaries, citizens under 70 may refuse to vote, if they formally express their decision to the electoral authorities, at least 48 hours before the election. This is valid only for the subsequent primary, and needs to be repeated each time the voter wishes not to participate.)
Australia – Introduced in 1924.[17] Compulsory for federal and state elections for citizens 18 years of age and above. The requirement is for the person to enroll, attend a polling station and have their name marked off the electoral roll as attending, receive a ballot paper and take it to an individual voting booth, mark it, fold the ballot paper and place it in the ballot box. The act does not explicitly state that a choice must be made, it only states that the ballot paper be 'marked'. According to the act how a person marks the paper is completely up to the individual. In some states, local council elections are also compulsory.[18] At the 2010 Tasmanian state election, with a turnout of 335,353 voters, about 6,000 people were fined $26 for not voting, and about 2,000 paid the fine.[19]
Brazil[20] – Compulsory for literate citizens between 18 and 70 years old. Non-compulsory for Brazilian Youth age 16-17 or over 70 or illiterate citizens of any age. A justification form for not voting can be filled at election centers and post offices.
Cyprus - Introduced in 1960.[17]
Ecuador – Introduced in 1936.[17] Compulsory for citizens between 18 and 65 years old; non-compulsory for citizens aged 16–18, illiterate people, and those older than 65.
Liechtenstein
Luxembourg - Voluntary for those over 70.
North Korea - Everyone over 17 is required to vote. For a single candidate that their party leaders select for the ballot.[21]
Nauru - Introduced in 1965.[17]
Peru[22] – Introduced in 1933.[17] Compulsory for citizens between 18 and 70 years old, non-compulsory for those older than 70.
Singapore – Compulsory for citizens above 21 years old as of the date of the last electoral roll revision
Uruguay - Introduced in 1934, but not put into practice until 1970.[17]
Schaffhausen canton in Switzerland has compulsory voting - Introduced to Switzerland in 1904, but abolished in all other cantons by 1974.[17]

O'Malley: 'The Presidency of the U.S. Is Not Some Crown to Be Passed Between Two Families'
9:49 AM, Mar 29, 2015 • By DANIEL HALPER

Martin O'Malley, a likely Democratic presidential candidate, took a shot this morning at Hillary Clinton and Jeb Bush, saying that the presidency is not a "crown" and need not "be passed between two families." Of course Clinton's husband Bill Clinton was president. And Bush's father, George H.W. Bush, and brother, George W. Bush, were both president.

Villa Jovis ("Villa of Jupiter"; also Villa Iovis, sometimes misspelled Villa Ionis) is a Roman palace on Capri, southern Italy, built by emperor Tiberius and completed in AD 27. Tiberius mainly ruled from there until his death in AD 37

Tiberius Caesar enjoyed orgies. According to Suetonius: "teams of wantons of both sexes, selected as experts in deviant intercourse and dubbed analists, copulated before him in triple unions to excite his flagging passions."

Obama in Palm City: President visits for weekend of golf

FORT PIERCE — President Barack Obama arrived in the Treasure Coast on Saturday for a golfing getaway, hitting the exclusive links at the Floridian National Golf Club with former Miami Heat star Alonzo Mourning and former NFL player and sportscaster Ahmad Rashad.
,...

A motorcade ferried Obama the 25 miles from the airport to the Floridian, a club that straddles the border between Martin and St. Lucie counties along the St. Lucie River and is owned by Democratic donor and Houston Astros owner Jim Crane. Obama golfed with Crane and Tiger Woods there during a February 2013 weekend trip in which the president was also kept from the view of the public and the media.

On Saturday, the Obama-Mourning-Rashad foursome was filled out Cy Walker, a frequent golfing companion of the president who is a cousin of Obama senior adviser Valerie Jarrett.

The White House did not publicize the fact that Air Force One would be landing at St. Lucie International before Saturday
. But a few people heard about the arrival and rushed to the airport to try to get a glimpse either of the president or his plane

Obama Nears Decision on Cuba’s Status on Terror List
By JULIE HIRSCHFELD DAVISAPRIL 10, 2015

PANAMA — President Obama is nearing a decision on removing Cuba’s three-decade-old designation as a state sponsor of terrorism, citing progress in his push to normalize relations with the island nation as he arrived here on Thursday night for a summit meeting of Latin American leaders.

On the eve of the gathering, where he will come face to face with the Cuban "Dictator" president, Raul Castro, for the first time since he announced in December that he would seek to normalize relations with the country, Mr. Obama said the State Department had completed a review that he had ordered of Cuba’s status on the list of states that sponsor terrorism.

Cubans were also far more likely to express a positive opinion of Obama than of their own leaders. Only 47% of Cubans have a positive opinion of their current president, Raul Castro, while 44% have a positive opinion of Fidel Castro, according to the survey.

for reference:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/It_Can%27t_Happen_Here



It Can't Happen Here is a semi-satirical 1935 political novel by American author Sinclair Lewis. Published during the rise of fascism in Europe, the novel describes the rise of Berzelius "Buzz" Windrip, a populist United States Senator who is elected to the presidency after promising drastic economic and social reforms while promoting a return to patriotism and traditional values. After his election, Windrip takes complete control of the government and imposes a plutocratic/totalitarian rule with the help of a ruthless paramilitary force, in the manner of Adolf Hitler and the SS. The novel's plot centers on journalist Doremus Jessup's opposition to the new regime and his subsequent struggle against it as part of a liberal rebellion. Reviewers at the time, and literary critics ever since, have emphasized the connection with Louisiana politician Huey Long, who was preparing to run for president in 1936 elections when he was assassinated in 1935 just prior to the novel's appearance

Obama admin asserts dominion over creeks, streams, wetlands, ditches — even big puddles
By Joseph Curl - - Wednesday, May 27, 2015

ANALYSIS/OPINION:

President Obama’s administration on Wednesday claimed dominion over all of America’s streams, creeks, rills, ditches, brooks, rivulets, burns, tributaries, criks, wetlands — perhaps even puddles — in a sweeping move to assert unilateral federal authority.

The Environmental Protection Agency, along with the Army Corps of Engineers, says it has the authority to control all waterways within the United States — and will exercise that authority


“We’re finalizing a clean water rule to protect the streams and the wetlands that one in three Americans rely on for drinking water. And we’re doing that without creating any new permitting requirements and maintaining all previous exemptions and exclusions,” EPA head Gina McCarthy told reporters Wednesday.
...

Career[edit]


A longtime civil servant, McCarthy held the position of assistant administrator, U.S. EPA from 2009 to 2013. Prior to 2009, she was commissioner, Connecticut Department of Environmental Protection, 2004–2009. She has held several top positions in the civil service of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, including deputy secretary, Massachusetts Office of Commonwealth Development, 2003–2004 and undersecretary for policy, Massachusetts Executive Office of Environmental Affairs, 1999–2003.[8]

...

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Army Corps of Engineers said they are making final their proposed waters of the United States rule, which Republicans and many businesses have long panned as a massive federal overreach that would put the EPA in charge of ditches, puddles and wet areas.

....

The House has voted multiple times to overturn the rule in its draft form. Senate Republicans have taken a different strategy, with a bill to overturn the rule and give the EPA specific instructions and a deadline to re-write it.

But the White House has remained steadfast in its push to enact the rule. On Wednesday, President Obama defended the regulation as protecting vulnerable waterways and providing clear guidance to businesses that are affected.
