The New York Times reported that the agreement is slated to be signed at a United Nations meeting next year in Paris. However, because the U.S. Senate is unlikely to ratify any international climate treaty, Obama’s negotiators reportedly are working toward an alternative agreement – a “politically binding” deal that would serve in lieu of a bona-fide treaty.

President Obama was absolutely swamped the other night, staving off the munchies at a pizza party in the Mile High city, hobnobbing as headliner at numerous Democrat shindigs, collecting big bucks from big donors all day.
Whew. Exhausting. Especially exhausting must be trying to change pace and pivot through the fundraising parties, knowing they’re thrown by those much maligned “fat cats” (Obama’s words, not mine).

President Obama is holding off on seeking legal changes to speed up the deportation process for illegal immigrant children, but is seeking more money than initially expected from Congress to deal with the crisis on the U.S.-Mexico border.
The president sent a massive $3.7 billion request seeking funds for everything from transportation costs to border enforcement to surveillance to health services.
Officials said they are taking an “aggressive” approach.

The president, speaking in the Rose Garden, said he is forced to go it alone because the House has failed to act on a comprehensive overhaul. He said Speaker John Boehner informed him last week the House will not vote on an immigration bill this year.
“America cannot wait forever for them to act,” Obama said. He said he’s launching a new effort to “fix as much of our immigration system as I can, on my own, without Congress.”

(CNSNews.com) – “You cannot win a battle against radical Islamic terrorism if you’re unwilling to utter the words ‘radical Islamic terrorism,'” Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) said on Tuesday.
Coincidentally, on the same day Cruz made that comment, Secretary of State John Kerry said that “extreme poverty” breeds terrorism.
Cruz was talking about the Benghazi attack with CNN’s Erin Burnett on Tuesday evening. He noted that the Obama administration, in explaining the attack to the American people, “edited out every reference to al Qaeda and radical Islamic terrorism.”
Appearing on CNBC’s Squawk Box on Thursday, NBC’s Chief Foreign Correspondent Richard Engel was asked to name one nation with whom relations have improved under President Obama’s foreign policy leadership. In the exchange with Home Depot co-founder Ken Langone, Engel finds the task impossible.
LANGONE: Name one country with whom we have better relationships today than we did when he became president of the United States almost six years ago?
ENGEL: Uh, well I, the uh, you would naturally want to say Europe. But generally the relations with a lot of European countries have gotten worse because of these relationships. And this is sort of what I was about to say.
Townhall has been all over the unfolding VA scandal. All told, whistleblowers and insiders from nine VA facilities (and counting) have come forward with allegations that veterans were subjected to unacceptable wait times and suboptimal care. Today the president invited Secretary of Veteran Affairs Eric Shinseki to the White House for a private meeting, presumably to discuss these revelations, announcing beforehand that he would release a statement directly afterwards. Here’s what he said:
“As commander in chief I have the honor of standing with our men and women at every step of their service,” he said. “So when I hear allegations of misconduct, any misconduct, I will not stand for it. Not as commander in chief but also not as an American. None of us should. So, if these allegations prove to be true, it is dishonorable, it is disgraceful, and I won’t tolerate it period.”

The Census Bureau has been directed to change the wording of questions concerning Americans’ health coverage so that it will be impossible to compare the answers with those provided by takers of the bureau’s interim annual surveys in previous years.
First reported Tuesday in The New York Times, the change drew criticism not only from conservatives — who have smelled some kind of agenda-driven motive from the Administration of President Barack Obama ever since oversight of the Census Bureau was taken out from under the Commerce Department and placed under the control of former White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel — but also from mainstream media, including Times reporter Josh Barro:

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year.
Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20.
