Supremes ruling – turning nice neighborhoods into ghettos

While we were so involved with the Gay Marriage and Obamacare Supreme court rulings, this little number came our way at the same time. Guess who is moving into our neighborhood?

In a 5-4 ruling, the court said certain housing policies that put minorities at a disadvantage, even if they aren’t expressly intended to discriminate, can be challenged in court.

The court sided with a community organization alleging that Texas’ housing department had improperly clustered Section 8 housing in low-income, high-crime areas — essentially preserving the segregation that federal housing law was designed to end.

Texas had argued that the lawsuit was invalid, and the question before the high court was whether the Fair Housing Act — a law intended to outlaw racial discrimination in housing — allows people to sue over practices that might not be explicitly discriminatory, but end up hurting minorities disproportionately.

You have worked hard so as to be able to live in a nice neighborhood where you can raise your kids in safety, and you don’t want some Section 8 crack house opening up across the street? Then you’re a racist. H/TMoonbattery

‘Disparate Impact’ Ruling Emboldens Obama’s Diversity Cops

Racial Preferences: Armed with a Supreme Court-licensed shakedown weapon, President Obama’s race cops will wage an even bigger war against lenders, insurers, employers and whoever else fails their “disparate impact” test.

Attorney Gen. Loretta Lynch said she and her civil-rights goons are “bolstered by this important ruling” by the high bench, which by a narrow 5-4 vote upheld bogus disparate-impact theory as a tool to enforce laws against housing, lending and insurance discrimination.

Meanwhile, HUD chief Julian Castro said the ruling gives his regulators a “greater level of certainty” to go after lenders and landlords. “We’re going to keep using it,” he warned, including against local zoning officials who have the audacity to restrict high-density housing to protect against blight, congestion and depreciation.

And Consumer Financial Protection Bureau Chief Richard Cordray says any financial policy, practice or standard that has a “disparate impact on communities of color” is fair game. “That doctrine is applicable for all of the credit markets we touch, including mortgages, student loans, credit cards and auto loans.”

Obama, morever, suggested that the EEOC and the Labor Department will use disparate impact as a tool to prevent employers from using criminal background checks and “calling Johnny back for a job interview but not Jamal.”

Obama: ‘We are going to have to change the way the media reports

We know that before Obama ends his regime that everything will be done to control the media. Here we have Fox in the crosshairs. But make no mistake, they will be coming after us lowly bloggers. I am on the road back to the Bunker, so may not get a chance to make my rounds. Sirius radio should keep be in the know. As of now, I can listen to it via the radio. Here we go:

FULL REMARKS: Obama Swipes at Fox: Pushing Narrative That Poor People Are ‘Leeches’. President Obama: ‘We’re Going to Have to Change How the Media Reports’. President Obama Destroys Fox News For Spreading Negative Stereotypes About The Poor!
President Obama spoke at a poverty forum at Georgetown University earlier today and took a swipe at Fox News for, as he put it, perpetuating certain stereotypes about poor people. The president addressed media efforts to “suggest the poor are sponges, leeches,” and that they’re “lazy” and undeserving.”
OBAMA SLAMS FOX NEWS President jabs network over portrayal of poverty
“If you watch Fox News on a regular basis,” Obama said, “it is a constant menu––they will find folks who make me mad, I don’t know where they find them.”

He’s referring to the “I just want a free Obamaphone” stuff that adds to a narrative, the president lamented, that needs to change, because that affects “people’s impressions of what it’s like to struggle in this economy.”

Supreme Court slaps Obama down unanimously once again

Once again the entire Supreme Court knocks down the Obama administration. Funny, this didn’t seem to make the news. This adds up to over 20 unanimous decisions that went against him. His two Supreme picks apparently are not so ready to move to a totalitarian government. Sweet. Here we go:

The Supreme Court ruled unanimously Wednesday that the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission must make “good faith” efforts to seek reconciliation before it sues a business for discrimination, under Title 7 of the Civil Rights Act. The decision was a strong rebuke to the commission, which had previously asserted that the courts had no jurisdiction over its reconciliation process.

The Chamber of Commerce highlighted the case in a lengthy study published last year that argued the commission under Obama was pursuing a “scorched earth” litigation strategy against employers.The opinion was authored by Justice Elena Kagan, an appointee of President Obama.

The justices struck that ruling down, saying the plain language of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 makes clear that Congress did intend for the courts to have oversight. “Congress rarely intends to prevent courts from enforcing its directives to federal agencies,” Kagan’s opinion stated.”

Congress imposed a mandatory duty on the EEOC to attempt conciliation and made that duty a precondition to filing a lawsuit. Such compulsory prerequisites are routinely enforced by courts in Title VII litigation. And though Congress gave the EEOC wide latitude to choose which ‘informal methods’ to use, it did not deprive courts of judicially manageable criteria by which to review the conciliation process,” the court ruled in the case EEOC v. Mach Mining.

Appeals court unfriendly to Obama’s illegal immigration move

Wins are few and far between these days. But this one would stall Obama and his latest round of illegals’ reward for stopping by. Looks like the Appeals court wasn’t so friendly. Probably going to the Supremes.

Politico reports:

A federal appeals court signaled Friday that it is unlikely to allow President Barack Obama’s request to go ahead with a new round of relief for illegal immigrants, making it likely that the White House will have to take its legal case to the Supreme Court within days.

The oral arguments before the 5th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals in New Orleans were being closely watched by both sides in the heated immigration debate as a sign of whether the administration will be able to move forward with its plan to grant quasi-legal status and work permits to about 4 million illegal immigrants. Notably, one Republican-appointed judge used the president’s own comments to put the Justice Department on the defensive.

There’s more:

Judge Jennifer Elrod. a Republican appointee, suggested that Obama’s own statements about the program undermined the federal government’s claims that immigration officials retain case-by-case discretion. She referenced a televised town hall meeting in Miami in February when Obama said that there would be consequences for government employees who ignored his directives to grant deferred action to those who are eligible.

The Obama kids lunch and then us. Let them eat cake

school lunch

How is this for a yummy treat?

PORTSMOUTH, Va. – That’s not really a fish filet with a whole wheat bun resting on top.

Nah, your eyes are playing tricks on you.

That’s what administrators at Virginia’s Portsmouth Public Schools want parents to believe after a mother took a photo of her child’s paltry school lunch and posted it on social media.

The mom says James Hurst Elementary served the lunch Tuesday.

After the photo began circulating around the community, Food Service Coordinator Jim Gehlhoff admitted the lunch “concerns us,” but added that it might not actually be as bad as it looks.

portsmouth-lunch“Poor lighting and food presentation make this lunch unappealing,” he said in a statement released to the media.

He says it’s in compliance with the federal lunch rules championed by First Lady Michelle Obama.

“The meal in this photo and other meals served by Portsmouth Public Schools meet nutritional and USDA requirements,” according to the food service coordinator.Keep reading…

Obama bashes United States while in Panama ‘Dark Chapters in our History’

Precious little was reported even by Conservative bloggers regarding Obama’s continued attacks on our Nation’s history while in Panama. I could only find one clip but this was not the worst of it. His long diatribe of over an hour was filled with negative comments. This in front of many who should be accused of war crimes. The Castros are smiling. So put this down as a post just for the record. Here we go:

Obama has a long history of bashing America while traveling outside of the country. In January he trashed racist America while in India. He gave front row seats to the Muslim Brotherhood when he trashed America in Cairo.

I am a student of history so I tend to actually be familiar with many of these episodes that have been mentioned. I am the first one to acknowledge that America’s application to concern around human rights has not always been consistent. And, I’m certainly mindful that there are dark chapters in our own history in which we have not always observed the principles and ideals upon which the country was founded. Just a few weeks ago I was in Selma, Alabama celebrating the 50th anniversary of a march across a bridge that resulted in horrific violence and the reason I was there and the reason it was a celebration is because it was a triumph of human spirit in which ordinary people without resort to violence were able to overcome systematic segregation. There voices were heard and our country changed. America never makes a claim about being perfect, we do make a claim about being open to change.”

Obama bashes Christians at prayer breakfast.

Unfortunately Obama can’t get off his contempt for Christians. We won’t get into his feelings about the Jews. But then anyone who disagrees with Obama clearly finds themselves on his radar for further correction viz a viz the IRS for one. As far as the crusades, he might just want to review history on that one.

Barack Obama spoke at the annual Easter Prayer Breakfast in the White House. He bashed Christians. No mention of the slaughter that is going on. Anyone really belive he is a Christian?

“On Easter I do reflect on the fact that as a Christian I am supposed to love. And, I have to say that sometimes when I listen to less than loving expressions by Christians, I get concerned. But that’s a topic for another day. (laughter) Where there is injustice, I was about to veer off.”

Here is his statement from an earlier Prayer breakfast.
