I am on the road today. I'm using a tablet to post, and it is almost impossible to ct and paste, so my normal entries will be missing.
Thank you for taking the time to host this thread every week!
Good Morning All. Thanks AB for doing yeoman’s work each and every Sunday. Sick and tired of amnesty and all its supporters. It is the final nail in the coffin of the greatest experiment in history.
Is McCain taking a week off ?
Thanks for the thread AB.
Let’s help him out and ping all the usual suspects to this thread.
I am so sick of politicians putting restrictions on US to control the border.
Get tough with Enrique Peña Nieto
We aint screwing the people of Mexico.
Our leaders are screwing us.
Hong Kong spat upon Obama Administration [AP excerpt]:
Snowden's departure, which came a day after the United States made a formal request for his extradition and gave a pointed warning to Hong Kong against delaying the process of returning him to face trial in the U.S.
The Hong Kong government said in a statement that Snowden left "on his own accord for a third country through a lawful and normal channel."
It acknowledged the U.S. extradition request, but said U.S. documentation did not "fully comply with the legal requirements under Hong Kong law." It said additional information was requested from Washington, but since the Hong Kong government "has yet to have sufficient information to process the request for provisional warrant of arrest, there is no legal basis to restrict Mr. Snowden from leaving Hong Kong."
The statement said Hong Kong had informed the U.S. of Snowden's departure. It added that it wanted more information about alleged hacking of computer systems in Hong Kong by U.S. government agencies which Snowden had revealed.
Thanks for the thread, AB!.
Gen. Keith Alexander, nsa chief on ABC defending the NSA snatching all our information. This is a matter of national security.
George asks about a claim by Snowden that NSA has the authority to launch offensive measures in an emergency situation. Yes, they do.
Thanks for thread A.B. Snowden is up and on the wing. We’ll see how that all plays out.
Durbin, talking about Snowden, invokes The Constitution.
[Amazing that the Libs can invoke it when they need it, but ignore it on most other occasions.]
lol, good for Hong Kong.
Richard Haas on ABC said it damaged our relationship with China. Calls him a felon, not a whistleblower. Says polls are showing people want him prosecuted.
Martha Radditz mocks Snowden and this desire for freedom and ending up in Venezuala.
Sen. Lee: “Everyone wants immigration reform”
NO WE DON’T!
There’s nothing wrong with immigration NOTHING. But there is a hell of a lot wrong with border enforcement and dealing with the criminal invaders.
They are not citizens and need a good old dose of “cruel and unusual punishment”.
Snowden is a Red Herring.
Meanwhile Obie is on the beach.
Nothing about this Snowden guy makes sense.
Bender, bendover, whatever.
dude (not sure who he is) on ABC - says we need to take out Syrian airfields to prevent Syria being able to move around, prevent them from being able to use chemical weapons (oh, please.) Now says we need to move past the Russians. Says the president needs to make the case for intervention in Syria. (idiot!)
Richard Haas says we need to give them heavier weapons.
Re: Snowden & eavesdropping.
Coburn basically says, ‘trust the gov, they aren’t listening in on your phone calls’.
[When Coburn first went to Congress, he was conservative. He has, however, been in Washington so long that whatever his position is on an issue any more is a toss-up.]
