WASHINGTON — Anyone can relate. You get in your mode of transport — car, boat, helicopter — and you realize you forgot something: glasses, wallet, cell phone. Right? Ppppfftt...
So it went for President Barack Obama Friday. On his way to Las Vegas to promote his immigration executive actions, Obama boarded his Marine One helicopter on the White House's South Lawn.
But he promptly disembarked and headed back into the executive mansion.
When he emerged moments later, the president said he had forgotten his Blackberry, pulling it from its holster and showing it to reporters and photographers.
But an AP photographer captured a curious thing when Obama first got out of the helicopter: His Blackberry was already in its holster.
Two phones? Or maybe it was the wallet he forgot, after all.

Obama signals the "Horned Hand" to adoring crowds in attendance.....
President Obama has committed a mind-boggling $3 billion to a new United Nations Green Climate Fund run by officials from Communist nations, a country that appears on the State Department’s list of terrorism-sponsors and an Arab oil-industry chief.
As if it weren’t bad enough that our commander-in-chief is giving away money while the nation suffers through a colossal budget deficit, there are countless reasons why this is a lousy idea. First of all, the United Nations is a famously corrupt organization that is already largely funded by Uncle Sam to the tune of billions annually.
The exact figure is tough to nail down because the U.S. cash flows, not just directly to U.N. coffers from the State Department and the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), but also from a number of other government agencies to the U.N. system.
The entire world body is well known as a pillar of fraud and mismanagement, but that hasn’t slowed the tide of American taxpayer dollars. Even the U.N.’s Human Rights Council, funded primarily by American taxpayers, is a huge joke.
A few years ago Judicial Watch reported that the U.N. awarded a genocidal warlord indicted by an international court for crimes against humanity a seat on its laughable human rights council. His name is Omar Al-Bashir, a ruthless African dictator charged by the International Criminal Court of war crimes in Darfur for killing thousands of his own citizens.
The last thing we need is another global U.N. initiative looking for cash. The “urgency and seriousness of climate change” inspired the crooked world body to create the Green Climate Fund, which aims to help the international community combat global warming.
Here’s the plan in a nutshell; the fund will promote the paradigm shift towards low-emission and climate-resilient development pathways by providing support to developing countries to limit or reduce their greenhouse gas emissions and to adapt to the impacts of climate change. This will be accomplished by following the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, an international environmental treaty that aims to stabilize greenhouse gas concentrations.
Predictably, this can’t be accomplished cheaply and President Obama stepped up to the plate with the astounding $3 billion allotment. He made the announcement this month during a speech in Australia. “Now, today, I’m announcing that the United States will take another important step,” Obama said “We are going to contribute $3 billion to the Green Climate Fund so we can help developing nations deal with climate change....

The idea that an infinite number of parallel worlds could exist alongside our own is hard to wrap the mind around, but a version of this so-called Many Worlds theory could provide an answer to the controversial idea of quantum mechanics and its many different interpretations.
Bill Poirier, a professor of physics at Texas Tech University in Lubbock, proposed a theory that not only assumes parallel worlds exist, but also says their interaction can explain all the quantum mechanics "weirdness" in the observable universe.
Poirier first published the idea four years ago, but other physicists have recently started building on the idea and have demonstrated that it is mathematically possible. The latest research was published Oct. 23 in the journal Physical Review X.
Quantum mechanics is the branch of physics that describes the rules that govern the universe on the microscopic scale. It tries to explain how subatomic particles can behave as both particles and as waves. It also offers an explanation about why particles appear to exist in multiple positions at the same time. [The 9 Biggest Unsolved Mysteries in Physics]
This fuzzy clump of possible positions is described by a "wave function" — an equation that predicts the many possible spots a given particle can occupy. But the wave function collapses the second anyone measures the actual position of the particle. This is where the multiverse theory comes in.
Some physicists believe that once a particle's position is measured, the many other positions it could take according to its wave function split off and create separate, parallel worlds, each only slightly different from the original.
Hugh Everett was the first physicist to propose the possibility of a multiverse — an infinite number of parallel universes that exist alongside our own. He published his "Many Worlds" theory in the 1950s, but the idea was not well-received in the academic world.
Everett ended his career in physics shortly after getting his Ph.D., but many physicists now take themultiverse and parallel-worlds idea seriously. Poirier reworked the Many Worlds theory into the less abstract "Many Interacting Worlds" (MIW) theory, which could help explain the weird world of quantum mechanics.
Quantum mechanics has existed for more than a century, but its interpretation is just as controversial today as it was 100 years ago, Poirier wrote in his original paper.
Albert Einstein was not a fan of quantum mechanics. The idea that a particle could exist in a haze of probability instead of a definite location did not make sense to him, and he once famously said, "God does not play dice with the universe." However, this new MIW theory might have helped to put Einstein's mind at ease. In the MIW theory, quantum particles don't act like waves at all. Each parallel world has normal-behaving particles and physical objects. The wave-function equation doesn't have to exist at all....

The US President, tonight, broke his oath of office and unlawfully circumvented the US Constitution in front of God and everybody; that's the story, all else is merely static cling...or is it? A number of pundits seeking to weigh in to defend Obama's impeachable offense have sought to obfuscate the issue; however, the prevailing precedent is quite clear.
The immigration laws of the United States are in the process of being subverted by its chief executive over political ideology, wholly undesired by the nation's Congress and the American people, under the guise of social justice.
The facts are self-evident.
The President, when he took his solemn oath of office, swore to uphold US law and the Constitution against all enemies, both foreign and domestic, from Wikipedia:
"The oath of office of the President of the United States is an oath or affirmation required by the United States Constitution before the President begins the execution of the office. The wording is specified in Article Two, Section One, Clause Eight:"
Before he enter on the Execution of his Office, he shall take the following Oath or Affirmation: "I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States."
The President has broken his oath amid a clamor of both applause and some few scowls.
Indeed, the President has effectively appealed only to the emotives of America, those who are pliant to emotional manipulation against all forms of basic logic. While Obama and his minions pine over the minimum wage, they have just accomplished more to keep wages naturally low than any amount of disingenuous lawmaking ever could, in keeping with the US Chamber of Commerce's wishes.
Tonight is historic, but not for the reasons that you will inevitably hear and read, but from the vantage point of how far, now, will this President go to further deteriorate the balance of power as set forth over 240 years ago.
We are in the midst of a Constitutional crisis, ladies and gentlemen, it's as simple as that.
The first time is always the easiest; however, most of us know that this is not necessarily the first time. But it is the first time Obama has admitted to shredding the US Constitution, and on national TV, and with arrogant aplomb rather than denial.
From this point onward, whatever the Congress delivers to Obama will be earned and in triplicate by this President. The people of the United States have just been unforgivingly insulted--we can only hope our congressional representation will see the thing for what it is rather than how the media might try to redefine it.
Below is the rest of the story from The Daily Caller:
President Barack Obama's unilateral amnesty will quickly add as many foreign workers to the nation's legal labor force as the total number of new jobs created by his economy since 2009.
The plans, expected to be announced late Nov. 20, will distribute five million work permits to illegal immigrants, and also create a new inflow of foreign college graduates for prestigious salaried jobs, according to press reports.
Obama has already provided or promised almost one million extra work permits to foreigners, while his economy has only added six million jobs since 2009.
Under the president's new amnesty plan, "up to four million undocumented immigrants who have lived in the United States for at least five years can apply. ... An additional one million people will get protection from deportation through other parts of the president's plan," according to a Nov. 19 report in The New York Times.
The five million total was attributed to "people briefed on his plans,"the Times reports.
The five million work permits will add to Obama's prior giveaways, which have provided work permits to almost one million foreigners....

The Rush Limbaugh Show
By Rush Limbaugh
You remember last week we had some laughs and some yuks because Biden was down in Central America, El Salvador or somewhere? Everybody thought that he committed a huge gaffe. He didn't, but they thought he did. He was making a speech in public with a bunch of Central American leaders, and he basically promises parents and kids that we're gonna make the trip to America safer for you from now on.
No more 45 days on a train. We're gonna fly you to America.
Everybody said, "What the hell is that? What an idiot! My God, he's letting the cat out of the bag. Here's Joe Biden, once again blowing it." No, he didn't. He was just a week ahead of the official announcement, which I have here in my formerly nicotine-stained fingers. (shuffling paper) Right here it is, ladies and gentlemen, from the United States Department of State and the US Department of Homeland Security, I read verbatim.
"The United States is establishing an in-country refugee/parole program in El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras to provide a safe, legal, and orderly alternative to the dangerous journey that some children are currently undertaking to the United States. This program will allow certain parents who are lawfully present in the United States to request access to the US Refugee Admissions Program for their children still in" El Salvador, Guatemala or Honduras.
So the State Department, in a press release, has announced what Biden said last week. And, by the way, it's gonna work both ways. The children who came here all this past year, if their parents can be found and identified, they, too, will be flown north and reunited in the United States, which explains what this whole minor migration was all about. It explains what it was all about!
You get the kids here. "We can't be responsible for breaking up families! So if the children are here, and if we can find their parents, we'll bring 'em here." Now we know why the parents let them go. We're all asking this past year, "What kind of parent would let her 8-year-old get on a train with a whole bunch of strangers? What kind of characters are they gonna find on there? Hobos, rapists, muggers, purse snatchers, whatever?
"Why would you let your 8-year-old get on a train for 45 days to the United States, even if the economy in your own country is in bad shape? What parent would do that?" The answer is: "A parent who will use the child getting to America as the ticket for them to get there to join the child." So what Obama's gonna announce Thursday, folks, is just the tip of the iceberg.
We're gonna grant amnesty, i.e., we're not gonna deport whatever, five million. We're not deporting anybody anyway, not in great numbers. In addition to that, we're not gonna shut down the border. We're not gonna make one more move on border security whatsoever. We're gonna start flying people from Central America up here, and these are three countries, remember, that are not Mexico.
There's a quirk in the immigration law which says that children arriving in the United States from countries other than Mexico cannot be sent back. All of a sudden we've got tens, maybe hundreds of thousands of them storming the border, and everybody's scratching their head saying, "Why? What's causing this?" It's all been a plan. ....
