Good morning, and thanks for the post. I hope that Luis Gutierrez, D-Ill, has something enlightening to say about the slaughter of innocents, either in or near his district, all summer long because of runaway guns who shoot themselves off and strike Luis’ constituents (or people who live very close to them)

Thanks for thread A.B. It looks like Kerry, Samantha Power and the whole Obama hate Israel lobby are getting their wish for the potential destruction of Israel. Forcing them into a war against myriad existential threats. It comes down to “in God’s hands”, which will become interesting.

Perry could score some points for 2016, depending on how he handles the border crisis.

Will he stand up or stand aside?

Those of us who are “heartless” are awaiting his response.

Obama is complaining that the Boehner lawsuit is going to cost tax dollars.

That's rich — as Obama is on a 15-day vacay at taxpayers’ expense. How much did Michelle's last vacay cost? Seems like it was around $44 million.

Obama Says GOP Lawsuit Will Cost Tax Dollars

McCain managed to squeeze in a few minutes on SOTU. Graham has been laying low from the Sunday morning news-talkies.

Rubio claims he can beat Hillary. Poor guy still has the stench from the Gang of 8 all over his shoes. He will never get that stench off.

Depending on which early poll, Romney, Christie, Huckabee, JBush, Cruz, Carson, Daffy Duck is the GOP front-runner for 2016.

All Perry has to say is.....When do we stop the hole in the dam? Sure you take care of the good (non gang bangers) kids ( because they are already here). Send the thugs back to some third world hell hole and let them kill each other( NOT OUR BUSINESS).

Here’s a post I made over at the Thinker yesterday.it pretty much sums up what is going on with the humanitarian crisis in Central America which as I explain is anything but.

What continues to amaze me is how the msm has once again gotten illiterates to believe that this third world migration from Central America is truly a humanitarian crisis that just happened due to instability in the area instead of a Val/jar Axelrod/Sinaloa op which it is.
What happened is that the regime, undoubtedly Jarrett et. all, made deals with the narcos who run things. In this case Sinaloa drug cartel as James Lewis so adroitly pointed out to stir things up.
The entire op began in 2012 when zero’s handlers created an EO that allowed special children from a few Central American countries to come here basically undocumented with no questions asked.Hey its far better than amnesty it never ends.
The msm claimed Bush did it in 2008—not so.
With the legislation in hand the regime then advertised in govt. periodicals last winter for companies who could handle 65,000 children, transport them both by plane and bus, care for them and get them to places like Murrieta, Ca. or Arizona where they are now. Overflowing with diseases, sick children accompanied by drug mules, terrorists and who knows whom else have created an invasion heretofore never seen in the US.
The Sinaloa was all to happy to arrange transport on Mexicon trains, by foot whatever and dems are all too delighted to welcome new voters as are pubbies to welcome new cheap labor. Meanwhile, we pick up the tab and wonder WTH ever happened to our country.

No point in talking about this just yet. We have the Fall elections to get through first. We will need to evaluate the results of the fall elections, speculate on the New Congress and then in the Spring of 2015 we can start pissing on each other for who is the better “REPUBLICAN” presidential candidate.

Unless there are options other the Republican

Morning AB, All....

.....So today is my cooking day as most of you might know. I have some shrimp out to thaw as they make a great little dish with some cocktail sauce. I find that with just feeding myself I am having to adjust all my quantities, indeed even my choices as cooking for beloved husband was very different than preparing meals just for me.

Beloved deceased husband would never, for example, eat shrimp of any kind. He’s born in Indiana and those folks think seafood is immoral.

Gerald, the black and white cat who always helps me cook, however, considers shrimp quite the delicacy and so I must cover, and hide and watch the shrimp as I drain it in a colander that hooks over my sink.

Well Gerald, despite the cutting board and kitchen items piled on top of it spends many minutes pondering how to get to the draining shrimp and next thing I hear crashes and falls and the sound of tinkling metal.

Gerald begins to MEOW very loudly and as I rush to see what the hell I note Gerald is trying to get his paw out of something, there are utensils all over the floor and shrimp are everywhere.

Somehow Gerald got his CLAW stuck in one of the little colander holes and folks, it was agony and screaming, both human and cat, as I tried to wrest his claw out of that little hole.

I might need to obtain some type O blood but I did get Gerald’s claw out of the hole.

He was on his last legs, life was ebbing from him, only the shrimp could save him. Psssst, what’s one claw when you got a big pile of shrimp?

Thank you AB for doing this thread every week and big this week I suspect will be that border problem.

If ever there was a ham-handed move by a Presidents it’s this one. Most Americans didn’t even know about this onslaught at the border and it would have been better to not to show it for all of the country to see.

We understand fences and locks out here in la-la land and I think one of the more revealing glimpses this past week was that video that went viral of that black woman ranting about all this.

AND SHE WAS ABSOLUTELY RIGHT!

She said it all even better than I could.

By the way I am not Jewish but do realize true intellect when I run across it.

Perry is talking out of both sides of his mouth: we gotta take care of the kids already here, but we need to send a message to the CA countries.

[Similary to what Graham advocates: we need to give Obama a blank check to deal with this kids, but we need to stop of the flow of kids.]

Bwahahaha! Like anyone on this site is going to wait for Spring to do THAT!

All I ask as we go through another election cycle is folks keep it civil here and not try to get people they disagree with banned. It is the one thing I have really felt the management has been wrong on, and I've seen too many friends and sharp minds on this thread even, who would otherwise be with us today, fall to that kind of Bolshevik political correctness. If I actually named names of those who used to post here, I think most would agree. I disagree with some things that are said, but also am mature enough to understand not everyone HAS to agree with me.

Good morning and good question.

I’ll take a RINO over a Democrat any day. At least with the RINO’s we have a possibility to move them to the right using conservative logic. No such opportunity exists with Democrats and there is no way the Democrat leadership will ever be acceptable.

If it takes a RINO to win in New Jersey, fine. Christie is better than any Democrat. If our RINO class wants a Jeb Bush or Mitt Romney, fine for their state. BUT, not nationally and not representing the Republican conservative base.

We can work with a Republican liberal on some issues but it’s impossible to work with progressive Democrats on every issue.

Michael McCaul (R-TX) is not very impressive on this issue. He is mixing the emotional ‘for the children’ mantra with needs to change existing laws.

We need new laws to deal with the humanitarian crisis. We don’t want large human care warehouses. We need to act on the crisis soon. We need to treat Mexican and OTM children the same. Yada yada yada.

ProObama, and Hyperliberal Brit Hume takes the chair
at FOX.

At intro:
Hume starts with that Israel attacked Gaza and IGNORES the cause.
Then, Hume claims the S. Border is a crisis and IGNORES the cause.

Acting like a fool, Hume interviews Gov. Perry,
and he actually “wonders” before Gov. Perry what the Border Patrol
might do? Perry correctly notes the Border Patrol has retreated
by 40 miles, and even the appearance of LEO would be beneficial.
Perry clearly defines the problems with the Border.

In response, Lib Hume ignores it and claims the Border Patrol
is useless, and again Perry rebuts him,
but he is ignored.

Ignoring the obvious, Hume: “If (the children) have
gotten this far, (why would they) be deterred by (armed) troops?”

Perry again answers, and points out that we MUST
“staunch the bleeding .... It is the most humanitarian
thing we can do”. Again, Perry points out that
some of the LEO can arrest, and proObama Hume says they cannot.

So, trying to change the subject and ignoring this,
Hume takes Obama’s side regarding something
Obama said after the Texas visit, blaming Perry.
Hume: “Will you pressure the Texas delegation”

Perry acts Presidential and focuses the issue
again; and says that Obama should have gone to the border.

Again, Hume takes the side of Obama, while calling
the narcoterrorists, criminal illegals and
infected mules as the “children” over and over,
and says they must be “cared for by the government”.
{No mention made of the concentration camps closed
to Congress and journalists, and the gagging of
doctors and nurses, and secret transport to 57 states}.

Gov. Perry: “That Law must be changed.
(Congress) understands that; (but ....)
To staunch the flow you do not need a change of law.”

Bottom line:
Gov. Rick Perry did great, explaining the problem in
detail, and demanding “boots on the ground” such
as “There should be National Guard troops on the border.”

Hume protects Obama in every conversation and ignores
the diseases, conspiracies, coverup, terrorists,
doctor-gagging, nurse-gagging, and
Congressional-wall off.
By implication, Lib Hume and FOX News continue
to be a Obama/Romney channel.

It used to be that the Northeast was all liberal to moderates at the most rightward of the spectrum. So democrats up there were naturally liberal, and Republicans there were what a conservative would call a liberal or at best wishy-washy...

Down here in the South, we actually had loads of conservative democrats, who were much more conservative than even the Republicans of the Northeast. Southern conservative senators like James Hill, John Sparkman, Herman Tallmadge, Sam Nunn, Sam Ervin, Strom Thurmond, John Stennis, Russell Long, etc. All democrats, but decidedly NOT liberals.

I can think of a ton of Northeast liberal Republicans Senators: Prescott Bush, Henry Cabot Lodge, Jacob Javits, Lowell Weicker, Edward Brooke, George Aiken, Everett Dirksen, Nelson Rockerfeller, Margeret Chase Smith, and a host of other RINOs as we know them today.

The thing is that in our lifetime the American political party system went from regional to ideological in a 40 year time span, say 1960-2000.

The point I’d have fro anyone is this: Let the Northeast do their thing, even if it means RINOs, because the voters there just won’t EVER vote for our type of conservative.

Conservatives should concentrate on getting as many like minded people elected in those regions where that philosophy has always held sway; the South and the West. Accept the RINOs as ideological inferiors but whose numbers allow our more conservative party stalwarts to hold and wield power.

Too bad some think that always being on the outside looking in is more pure than winning and getting much of your agenda accomplished, or, in the worst case, like now, or at least 2008-2010, see the Left triumph legislatively. That and Supreme Court justices will hurt us for decades to come.

In terms of the OTM "children" entering the country, more troops on the border accomplishes nothing except increase the size of the welcoming committee. We need more troops to enforce the border to stop adults, drug smugglers, and terrorists. The border is a sieve.

The 2008 law must be changed immediately. Obama's backdoor Dreamer amnesty of 2012 set the stage for what is happening now.

After listening to McCaul who is pushing his bill, this says to me that this is all orchestrated by both parties. McCaul's bill is a bad one. It is a Trojan Horse for comprehensive immigration reform. The bill links border security to legalization of the 12 to 20 million illegal aliens. It is a packaged deal.

OK, seriously, Diogenesis, if Brit Hume is a hyperliberal, where do you place Chris Matthews, Candy Crowley, Bob Shieffer, Dan Rather, Chuck Todd, Rachel Maddow, etc, etc?

Because Brit Hume is NOTHING like these others. Now, Hume may be a RINO for sure, but he is not a liberal.

And Perry isn't a conservative, either, and in fact I would say his position on most things line right up with Brit's. Perry is pro-amnesty, for example.

I think a lot of this is image and perception. The Democrats paint us as unfeeling and heartless.

Our side should easily say we want a path to citizenship and support these immigrants. The difference is Democrats would simply give everyone citizenship and we would send them home to apply for citizenship using a rational immigration program.

Both sides want to help the children. But the Democrats vision of helping is total amnesty and government supports whereas Republicans vision of helping is sending them home to be with parents and relatives, education and learning to earn for themselves what they want.

I won’t fault Perry or other Republicans until I understand the details of their positions. Immigration reform is needed but it depends on the initial success of protecting our borders and stopping illegals from taking advantage of what we have to offer. Reform means nothing if we continue to encourage open borders and abuses of our institutions.

For those RINO’s, don’t jump on me for immigration reform until you’ve resolved the border security issue. Solve that and we can discuss the way forward from there.

Sorry for the rant.

Listening to the panel discuss the invasion of children is exasperating.

Somebody do something, but don’t send them back because that is inhumane. Change the law. [They aren’t enforcing the existing laws, so what good will new laws be?]

==

The pols and pundits want the appearance of resolution without engaging in physical solutions.

==

How about this: Stop those trains, etc., on the Mexican side and make it Mexico’s problem to deal with the kids. Mexico would solve the situation in a week — because they don’t want the problem. Currently, they are just playing the conduit and probably getting well paid for it.

I would even go so far as to say the democrats could NOT care less about the plight of the immigrants except to see them as VOTES for democrats, and are HELL BENT on getting total amnesty as they believe it guarantees them a majority in which to wield political power for decades.

This explains their rabid hatred of Voter ID, too. It has nothing to do with discrimination; otherwise, they would rail against IDs for food stamps, benefits, housing, etc. Being able to cheat and stuff ballot boxes in close elections has always been their specialty. They will NOT give that up.

Anyone who thinks Obama is stupid is a Moron.

The Left wing has many dedicated thugs, history keeps repeating itself.

This is the current version of National Socialist working closely with large corporations Just like Europe in the 1930s

Israel will always kick the arabs ass. They are so much smarter its not even a contest.

Thank God for that.

Apparently, just like "Africn-Americans" The sand-muzzies don't place any stock in education. They're probably genetically as just smart as anyone else.

They probably think it's just "acting Jewish".

Another FReeper suggested we offer a bounty of $1,000 for each illegal deported. For the $3.7 trillion the White House is requesting, we could deport 3.7 million.

RE: Hume

A few weeks ago, I was astonished when Hume claimed that the current comprehensive immigration law was not amnesty. He went on to say the amnesty was not a part of any of the previous comprehensive immigration bills.

==

We have had thousands of rounds of what is and is not amnesty. ‘They’ have thrown out numerous terms as an attempt to change the perception. Some call it regularization; some call it legalization.

What level of intelligence does it take to see through such smokescreens? Just because the word - amnesty - is not used does not mean that implementation of a bill results in giving illegals a ‘safe haven’.

Amnesty, not matter what you call it, is still amnesty.

==

Hume and the entire Fox/News Corp seems to have a distinct pro-Latino flavor any more. It would be interesting to know the details of Murdoch’s meeting with Valeria Jarrett a few weeks ago, as the topic was supposedly immigration.

Because those in power, both parties, want to continue this. Despite our anger and demand for action, it is exactly what they want and we’re helpless to stop it. The few primaries left and the November elections is where we fight back; in fact, short of grabbing your musket and fighting them, it is still our ONLY way.

I sure hope the “pure” do not sit home and “teach” the RINOs a lesson. A win by one TEA party candidate strengthens any and all TEA party Republicans in Congress, even though Boehner and McConnell keep their seats.

A lose by ANY Republican to a democrat is a lose for us all.
