In a stunning defeat for President Barack Obama on Thursday, the House passed a bill limiting Obama's plan to resettle 10,000 Syrian refugees in New Orleans in 2016.

Obama had threatened to veto any such bill that crossed his desk. But that was before 47 of his own Democrats joined with all but 2 Republicans to pass the bill.

The Democrats can breathe a sigh of relief. Vice President Joe Biden is out of the running for the Democratic presidential nomination. Biden had no chance of being nominated anyway, but we all could have used the laughs.

From CNN.com:

With his wife, Jill, and President Barack Obama at his side in the White House Rose Garden, Biden said the window for a successful campaign "has closed," noting his family's grief following the death of his son, Beau.

Still, Biden positioned himself as a defender of the Obama legacy and made clear he views himself as the best possible successor to the President. In tone, the remarks sounded like the kind of speech defending staunch Democratic values that he might have given had he reached the opposite conclusion.

Obama kiss

With the stroke of a pen yesterday, President Barack Obama signed an executive order beefing up "sexual orientation" employee protections that already exist within the federal government.

The new executive order gives protections to gays, bisexuals, and transsexual employees of federal contractors. The executive order does not include religious exemptions -- meaning Catholic, Jewish and Muslim organizations that do business with the federal government cannot fire employees whose sexual preferences conflict with the organizations' religious morals or beliefs.

Eric Cantor Loses in Stunning Defeat

President Barack Obama is rethinking his stance on immigration reform after House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (REP) lost in a GOP Primary to a Tea Party Challenger on Tuesday.

Cantor's stunning defeat sent shockwaves through Washington yesterday as Republicans, and even Democrats, sat up and took notice.

Many say Cantor thought he was too much of a big shot in Washington to return home to Virginia to personally campaign against Dave Brat, an economics professor.

Cantor is the first sitting House Majority leader to lose in a primary in the history of American politics.

The defeat sent a strong signal to Washington that Americans are fed up with Washington's politics -- particularly on immigration reform.

The very Reverend Dr. Derrick Harkins oversaw the service -- as he did in 2009.

"Let me just say, to the first family, to the President of the United States, Barack Obama, to the first lady of the United States, and Miss Malia and Sasha, we welcome you," Harkins said, according to a pool reporter at the service.

Judy Smith

Judy Smith, the D.C. damage control expert who inspired ABC's hit TV series Scandal, says she has not seen a disaster like Obamacare in a while. She added that President Obama has lost the trust of the American people with his problem-plagued Obamacare launch.

Smith, who was a guest on CNN's Piers Morgan Tonight, said "I think it is very problematic really because this was [President Barack Obama's] signature piece of legislation. And I think everybody agrees that [Obamacare] has been an absolute mess."

Russell Simmons

Media mogul Russell Simmons says President Obama's troubled health care law has already saved thousands, if not millions, of lives. Simmons made his ludicrous claims in an op-ed post on his website, Global Grind.

"Yes, we initially wanted single payer, and we had to compromise back in 2009 for the Affordable Care Act," Simmons wrote. "But, [Obamacare] is a damn good piece of legislation that has already saved hundreds of thousands, if not millions of lives. So, let us not give up now."

Simmons did not provide any statistics or evidence to back up his claims.

White House fires Jofi Joseph

The Internet is buzzing about President Obama sacking high ranking White House official Jofi Joseph, a director with the National Security Staff.

The Daily Beast blog reports that Joseph was fired last week when Obama discovered he was a White House mole leaking classified information under a fake Twitter name since 2011.

The Daily Beast saved a long list of Joseph's tweets before they were deleted. “I'm a fan of Obama, but his continuing reliance and dependence upon a vacuous cipher like Valerie Jarrett concerns me,” he once tweeted.

I took the liberty of looking up "vacuous cipher" for those of you who were wondering what it meant. It means a person of no importance who has or shows a lack of intelligence; or a mindless individual who lacks a personality.

Welp, so much for Obama running a tight ship in the White House. Here he is worrying about NSA leaker Edward Snowden over in Russia when he had a spy operating right under his nose for over 2 years. And if there was one spy in the White House, you know there must be more.

Artz called 911, and a Georgia Department of Transportation Highway Emergency Response Operator (HERO) was the first to arrive at the scene. The HERO operator succeeded in awakening the driver from his slumber. The driver then began to tussle with the HERO operator before speeding off in his truck. The driver drove a short distance north on the Buford Connector before crashing into two cars.

President Obama

Desperate to fix the mounting problems plaguing his insurance exchange portal website, Healthcare.gov, President Obama put in a call to telecommunications giant Verizon.

A report on USAToday.com quotes an informed source who says Obama called Verizon's Enterprise Solutions division to beg for help "to improve the performance of the HealthCare.gov site, which is a key component of the Affordable Care Act."

This news comes on the heels of a report that Healthcare.gov needs 5 million lines of code rewritten in order for the site to work properly.

If you recall, President Obama and his National Security Agency (NSA) enlisted the services of Verizon to spy on millions of Verizon customers.

Oprah Turns Her Back On Obama

President Obama's mishap-riddled Affordable care Act continues to be an embarrassment to his administration. The website that is supposed to give Americans access to the insurance exchanges is still badly broken. The White House admits that only 456,000 out of 30 million qualified Americans have signed up for health insurance. The Obama administration still refuses to release the actual number of total policies sold through the exchanges.

If all of that wasn't bad enough; Obama's best friend -- and staunchest supporter -- Queen Oprah refuses to endorse the problem-plagued ObamaCare.
