Zeituni Onyango’s arrogance and contempt for America is breathtaking. She came illegally, lived in public housing for years, collected welfare, even got $51k in disability. And still she is angry at America. This case is beyond depressing. And it underlines what many people see today: that in the old days, immigrants came to America to lend a hand to our growing nation. But far too many today merely come for a handout. And their arrogance and sense of entitlement is a symptom of the broken borders and lawlessness we have permitted, which lets anybody in, asks nothing of them, and gives charity to the lazy while so many deserving citizens are forgotten. And where is the multi-millionaire Obama in all this? His Aunt, whom he spoke lovingly about in his book, STILL does not work, STILL receives disability, still claims to have “no money”. And her multi-millionaire nephew Obama won’t send her a dime to get her off welfare. He’d rather YOU pay her way!… Continue Reading
Washington FreeBeacon The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is spending an additional $55 million to “bolster” the healthcare workforce, as Obamacare contributes to shortages in the industry.HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius announced last week that her agency will provide over 270 grants “from diversity to dentistry” to address worker shortages in the healthcare industry.The funding includes $45.4 million to support the nursing workforce, $5.2 million of which will go towards “improving nursing diversity.”The grants also provide $2.4 million for training of doctoral-level psychologists to “address the behavioral health needs of vulnerable and underserved populations,” and $3 million to support “preventive medicine residencies.”“These grants cover a wide spectrum of health workforce needs,” said Health Resources and Services Administration administrator Mary K. Wakefield, Ph.D., R.N. “From diversity to dentistry—all are critical to achieving a skilled workforce now and in the future.”Reports indicate that the Affordable Care Act is already causing doctor shortages, and an administration official admitted to the New York Post that the issue is serious.“There aren’t enough doctors. There aren’t enough nurses,” the official said.Michael Cannon, director of health policy studies at the Cato Institute, said Obamacare has exacerbated the issue.“We faced a huge doctor shortage before the law,” Cannon told the Washington Free Beacon.… Continue Reading

The California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation is being sued by a Stockton man for its multiple rejections of his employment application. The CDCR rejected the applications on the grounds that the applicant, Victor Guerrero 34, admitted that he used a fake social security number. Mr Guerrero believes that his former illegal status and the use of a fake social security number is not grounds for the CDCR to deny his employment.
Monday, the Legal Aid Society – Employment Law Center (LAS-ELC) filed suit in U.S. District Court in San Francisco on behalf of Victor Guerrero, 34, against the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) — which twice rejected Guerrero’s application to become a corrections officer due to his prior use of an invalid SSN — and the State Personnel Board (SPB), which upheld he denial.
LAS-ELC says Guerrero — who came to the United States illegally from Mexico at age 11 with his parents and obtained an invalid SSN at age 15 — did not know his SSN was fake until he was 17.
The law firm further claims that upon learning his SSN was fake, Guerrero obtained a individual tax identification number to pay his taxes and stopped using the fake SSN when he finally obtained his own real one.… Continue Reading

Michigan will join more conservative states in requiring residents who want health insurance coverage for abortions to buy an extra policy, after Republican legislators passed the law Wednesday over the objections of Democrats who pleaded for them to take the issue to voters instead.
The citizens’ initiative approved 62-47 by the House and 27-11 in the Senate _ almost entirely along party lines _ will become law in March without the signature of Republican Gov. Rick Snyder, who vetoed similar legislation a year ago. The anti-abortion group Right to Life collected more than 300,000 signatures to put the legislation before lawmakers, who also had the option of letting it go to voters.
The law prohibits insurance companies from offering abortion coverage as part of both public and private health plans, except when a woman’s life is at risk. Employers and individuals who want abortion coverage must buy supplemental policies, known as riders.
Michigan is the ninth state to restrict private plans from covering the procedure. Seven of the states _ Idaho, Kansas, Kentucky, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota and Oklahoma _ allow patients to purchase riders, just as Michigan will. Utah does not allow even supplemental coverage of elective abortions but lets general plans cover the procedure when the woman’s life in endangered, her health is severely compromised or in cases of rape, incest or fetal impairment.… Continue Reading

Ayo Kimathi, the Department of Homeland Security employee who had an alter ego as a militant black supremacist, has finally left the agency, months after his radical moonlighting was outed.
In November, we reported that DHS still hadn’t fired Kimathi, four months after his website espousing the “ethnic cleansing” of whites and “black-skinned Uncle Tom race traitors” had come to light. In August, he was placed on paid leave, pending administrative review.
But Wednesday afternoon, DHS deputy press secretary Gillian Christensen confirmed to National Journal that Kimathi, a procurement specialist for Immigration and Customs Enforcement, has left the agency. “Mr. Kimathi is no longer an ICE employee. His last day with the agency was December 6,” she said. She could not, however, clarify whether he resigned or was formally terminated, citing government-wide employment privacy policies.
Kimathi, going by the nom de guerre “the Irritated Genie,” ran a website called “War on the Horizon” and gave lectures preaching that blacks had to rise up in a massive war between the races. “In order for Black people to survive the 21st century, we are going to have to kill a lot of whites—more than our Christian hearts can possibly count,” he wrote in one such post.… Continue Reading
