New York Times he attributes Democratic losses in the House and Senate during his administration to a lact of communication.
"I mean, the truth of the matter is that if we had been able to more effectively communicate all the steps we had taken to the swing voter ... then we might have maintained a majority in the House or the Senate."

At-Large, Other Obama Illegal Alien Killer Was an ‘Unaccompanied Minor’ HHS Released to Another Illegal
The illegal immigrant now charged with killing 21-year-old Sarah Root while street-racing drunk in Omaha entered the U.S. as an “unaccompanied minor.” The Obama administration then placed him in the custody of his brother, another illegal immigrant.Now the U.S. Senate delegations from Nebraska and Iowa want to know the details of alleged killer Edwin Mejia’s placement in the U.S. with his illegal immigrant brother Santos Jesus Romero-Mejia.
“We are deeply concerned that an unaccompanied alien minor, Edwin (a.k.a. ‘Eswin’) Mejia, was released by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to a sponsor who was reportedly in the United States illegally,” Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA),
Sen. Joni Ernst (R-IA),
Sen. Deb Fischer (R-NE)and Sen. Ben Sasse (R-NE) wrote in a letter dated Tuesday to Health and Human Services Secretary Sylvia Burwell. According to the letter, Mejia was apprehended by Border Patrol after entering the country illegally in May 2013 and days later HHS placed him at the David and Margaret Youth and Family Services facility in Los Angeles, California. About a month later HHS released Mejia to his brother Romero-Mejia, at the time living in Madison, Tennessee.
“According to ICE, the ORR reunification packet includes information stating that “Edwin Mejia claims that his brother is ‘illegal,’” the letter reads.
Mejia, now 20-years old, is currently on Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Most Wanted List. He absconded after posting bail and ICE declined to detain him, saying was not a priority for detention under the the Obama administration’s immigration enforcement policies.
“Because Mejia was an unaccompanied minor at the time he crossed the border, HHS was in charge of his care and placement while in the United States,” the senators’ letter reads. “Given the findings by the Government Accountability Office that your Department does not adequately monitor its grantees and has failed to routinely conduct background checks, including fingerprinting all sponsors or completing child abuse and neglect checks on relative sponsors, we would like to know what information your Department had on Mejia’s sponsor before releasing Mejia into his custody.
“Moreover, we would like to know whether HHS had any further contact with Mejia once he was placed with his sponsor,” they added.
A recent Associated Press investigation found that from February 2014 to September 2015, HHS placed 80 percent of the the unaccompanied minors in its care to other illegal immigrants.
Read the letter:
Dear Secretary Burwell:
We are deeply concerned that an unaccompanied alien minor, Edwin (a.k.a. “Eswin”) Mejia, was released by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to a sponsor who was reportedly in the United States illegally. We would appreciate a better understanding of what happened in light of the fact that Mejia, now almost 20 years old, has since been charged with a crime resulting in the death of a U.S. citizen, absconded from authorities, and remains a fugitive at-large.
According to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), Mejia entered the country illegally on May 14, 2013, near Nogales, Arizona. At that time, Customs and Border Protection arrested Mejia and served him a Notice to Appear. On May 17, 2013, Mejia was placed by HHS, via the Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR), at the David and Margaret Youth and Family Services facility in Los Angeles, California. On June 28, 2013, Mejia was released into the custody of his brother, Santos Jesus Romero-Mejia, who resided in Madison, Tennessee. According to ICE, the ORR reunification packet includes information stating that “Edwin Mejia claims that his brother is ‘illegal.’”
Edwin Mejia was arrested on January 31, 2016, in Omaha, Nebraska, and charged with drag racing, driving under the influence, and killing 21-year old Sarah Root in a car accident. Mejia’s blood alcohol limit at the time of the accident was more than three times the legal limit. Sarah Root had graduated that evening from Bellevue University with perfect grades and was on her way home.
Mejia, who had twice failed to appear in court on state charges, was released on bond and absconded. His whereabouts are still unknown.
Because Mejia was an unaccompanied minor at the time he crossed the border, HHS was in charge of his care and placement while in the United States. Given the findings by the Government Accountability Office that your Department does not adequately monitor its grantees and has failed to routinely conduct background checks, including fingerprinting all sponsors or completing child abuse and neglect checks on relative sponsors, we would like to know what information your Department had on Mejia’s sponsor before releasing Mejia into his custody. Moreover, we would like to know whether HHS had any further contact with Mejia once he was placed with his sponsor. Therefore, we ask that your Department respond to the following questions related to this case no later than May 11:
1. Why was Edwin Mejia placed at the David and Margaret Youth and Family Services facility in Los Angeles?
2. How many individuals applied to be a sponsor for Edwin Mejia? Please provide details and any document related to each applicant, including information such as name, relationship, address, and a copy of the application submitted.
3. What specific background or biometric checks were done on the sponsor applicants before Edwin Mejia was transferred to the custody of his brother, Santos Jesus Romero-Mejia?
4. Who performed the background check for Mejia’s sponsor – HHS or a contractor? If a contractor, please provide the name.
5. Was Mejia released under any kind of an agreement, probation, or order of supervision?
6. How was Edwin Mejia physically transferred from California to the custody of his brother who supposedly resided in Tennessee?
7. What is the Department’s current policy on fingerprinting the sponsors of unaccompanied minors? If parents and other immediate relatives are not required to undergo biometric checks, please explain why.
8. After Mejia’s placement, did HHS have any further contact with him or his sponsor?
In addition to answering these questions, please provide any document related to Edwin Mejia, including all notes, documents, applications and correspondence included therein.
We appreciate your cooperation and await your response.

‘You Can’t Just Keep on Yelling’: Obama Criticizes ‘Black Lives Matter’ Activists During London Town Hall Discussion, You Think Obama Going To Trown B.L.M Under The Bus? I don't think So, LIar Obama
Barack Obama called out “Black Lives Matter” activists and urged them to be more willing to sit down and discuss their concerns Saturday during a town hall discussion in London.
Obama, who had been speaking at the Royal Horticultural Halls in central London, addressed racial issues and the demands of the BLM activists while criticizing the movement for alienating others with the way in which it presents its concerns, according to CNN.
You can’t just keep on yelling at them and you can’t refuse to meet because that might compromise the purity of your position,” Obama said as he referred to the BLM’s reaction to racially-motivated police violence, according to CNN.
Obama also attempted to draw the activists’ attention to the importance engaging in civil discourse and expressing a willingness to hear and respect other viewpoints besides their own.
“The value of social movements and activism is to get you at the table, get you in the room and then start trying to figure out how is this problem going to be solved,” Obama continued, according to NBC News. “You then have a responsibility to prepare an agenda that is achievable —that can institutionalize the changes you seek and to engage the other side.”

Obama Has Been So Cavalier About His Constitutional Duty To Faithfully Execute The Laws He Dislikes? He Say He Not A King?
One reason American politics is so polarized is that President Obama has been so cavalier about his constitutional duty to faithfully execute the laws he dislikes. On Monday the Supreme Court will hear a challenge to one of his worst abuses, his 2014 order that rewrites U.S. immigration law.
In United States v. Texas, 26 states sued to block Mr. Obama’s executive diktat that awards legal status, work permits and other government benefits to some 4.3 million illegal immigrants, with no consent from Congress. A federal judge...
