U.S. Asks Judge to Drop Immigration Plan Contempt Hearing

Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson asked a judge not to find him and other Obama administration officials in contempt after his agency recovered work permits mistakenly issued after the court halted a controversial immigration initiative.

Johnson said the government reclaimed all but 22 of the 2,500 offending permits and corrected federal computer databases to invalidate the rest, according to a report filed late Friday in federal court in Brownsville, Texas. Administration lawyers said the effort should prove Johnson and other top immigration officials have been sufficiently compliant to head off a contempt hearing set for later this month.

U.S. District Judge Andrew Hanen ordered President Barack Obama’s program halted until a trial can be held over a lawsuit by 26 states. Hanen has repeatedly chastised White House lawyers and immigration officials for their “cavalier attitude” about violating his order and accused them of dragging their feet.

Obama's Economic Growth Gap Now Tops $2 Trillion

Revisions: The latest GDP numbers show that President Obama's economic recovery — already the worst since World War II — was even worse than previously thought. This isn't slow and steady growth, it's punishingly slow.

News accounts of the latest Bureau of Economic Analysis report pointed to the 2.3% growth in real GDP in the second quarter as evidence that the economy had "bounced back" and "continued the slow but steady recovery trajectory of the last six years."

To be sure, 2.3% growth isn't awful, and it does come after the BEA revised its Q1 estimate upward — from -0.2 % to +0.6%. But the real story isn't found in these latest quarterly numbers. It's elsewhere in the report.

As it periodically does, the BEA revised previous years' GDP numbers, and what it found this time is that growth in almost every quarter since 2012 was weaker than it previously calculated.

The result is that GDP growth from 2012 to 2014 was just 2%, not 2.3%. In dollar terms, the revisions cut more than $100 billion from the nation's economic pie.

It also means that President Obama has presided over an economic recovery — now more than six years old — that is far worse than all the previous 10 stretching back 70 years.

Navy officer confirms he shot at Chattanooga gunman with personal weapon

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (Tribune News Service) — When Mohammad Youssef Abdulazeez attacked the U.S. Naval and Marine Reserve Center on July 16 with a handgun and an assault rifle, Navy Lt. Cmdr. Tim White opened fire.

White used his personal weapon to try to fend off Abdulazeez, he confirmed to the (Chattanooga, Tenn.) Times Free Press on Thursday. Abdulazeez killed four Marines and a Navy specialist in the brazen daytime attack.

White, who has served in the Navy for 13 years, moved to Chattanooga in April with his wife and six kids — and a seventh on the way. As the commanding officer at the center, White is limited in what details he can release because of the ongoing investigation into the attack.

But his wife, Franicia White, said she supports her husband's actions that day.

"He values human life enough to protect his sailors and others," she said. "I am honored to be his wife and stand by him 100 percent."

The July 16 attack sparked a national debate about whether military personnel should be armed in military buildings on United States soil.

Currently, Department of Defense regulations prohibit most service members from being armed on U.S. soil, including most personnel at reserves and recruiting centers like the ones Abdulazeez targeted in Chattanooga. Only law enforcement or service members who are acting as military police are allowed to carry weapons on such properties.

45 Homicides In July Becomes Baltimore’s Deadliest Since 1972

BALTIMORE (WJZ) — The deadliest month in more than four decades. Forty-five homicides for the month of July in Baltimore.

Tracey Leong explains how leaders are working to make the streets safer. The surge in homicides and violent crimes has city and community leaders on high alert–desperate for change.

Homicides in Baltimore rise to 45 in July–a gruesome statistic, making it the deadliest on record since 1972.

“This is ridiculous. People are just dying for nonsense stuff,” said Rhonda Miller.

July is the second time this year killings have spiked above 40, with the month of May totaling 41.
