    Where is the GOP’s John Wayne when you need him? Not, apparently, in Texas.When Ebola-infected Thomas Duncan landed in Dallas, he instantly became a deadly international health threat to U.S. citizens and America’s frontline health workers. The Liberian national became the face here for a growing pandemic that has already killed thousands of Africans and is decimating the societal fabric and governmental institutions of three countries in West Africa. Understandably, the man’s diagnosis sparked a rash of panic throughout the country about a horrific, mysterious and incurable disease that Americans had only heard about from far away lands or in...

    Responding to the Ebola crisis that gripped Dallas, Governor Rick Perry announced on Tuesday the creation of a containment facility in North Texas to treat individuals with the deadly virus. Perry's hope is that such a facility will protect health care workers and prevent Ebola from spreading to the greater public. A designated space at The University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston will additionally be utilized as a containment facility. The governor said in a statement provided to Breitbart Texas, "In the event of another diagnosis this facility will allow us to act quickly to limit the virus’ reach...

    Our very own liberal leviathan, the bloated, blind and wheezing U.S. Government, is preparing 34 million blank Green Cards and Work Visas in anticipation of Obama’s unilateral and unconstitutional plan to grant executive amnesty. Although this comes as no surprise, the fact our fearless leader is waiting until after the election speaks volumes about his politics and duplicitous nature. The disturbing realization the President of the United States is consciously allowing millions of Illegal immigrants, those who have little or no allegiance for this country’s heritage, to greatly influence our nation’s policies and potential survival is criminal and treasonous to...

    Senate Budget Committee ranking member Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) told Breitbart News that black workers across America should be wary of supporting Democrats because of President Obama and other Democrats’ support for immigration policies that displace them economically. "A nation owes its first obligation to its own citizens,” Sessions said in an emailed statement. “But our current immigration policy advantages the citizens of other countries over our own. Undeniably, one of the groups most hurt economically by unjust immigration policies are African-American citizens.” Sessions points to a study that Harvard economist Dr. George Borjas published with the National Bureau of...
  • Is Obama Unilaterally Planning Backdoor Amnesty?

    10/21/2014 5:30:54 AM PDT · by LeoMcNeil · 20 replies
    President Obama has been putting off doing something about illegal immigration since he took office. He came into office in 2009 promising amnesty for illegals and promptly did nothing despite having a filibuster proof majority in the Senate. Once Republicans took over the House, his refusal to compromise on anything more or less killed his chances of passing an immigration bill. If Obama didn’t hate Republicans so much, he probably could have passed something. After all, there are a substantial number of establishment Republicans who favor amnesty. These days Obama is promising illegals that he’s going to do something unilaterally....

    The news that another American child has died from the Enterovirus 68 epidemic sweeping our country’s schools and childcare facilities, and that an American health care worker has contracted the Ebola virus IN AMERICA should make every American voter demand that President Obama close our borders to travelers from countries where those diseases are endemic.It should be a natural alliance for Republicans – who claim to be the Party of people outside the Washington Beltway – to join with frightened airline workers, parents and health care workers to demand border security and immigration policies that protect them. And it should...

    Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus is pushing back against charges that Republicans are responsible for budget cut that have made it harder to contain the Ebola outbreak. “Obviously, this is just desperation on the part of this idiotic group,” Priebus said on Fox News’ “Fox and Friends on Tuesday, referring to the Agenda Project which released an ad that blames the GOP for slashing funding the Centers for Disease Control and the National Institutes of Health. (snip) Priebus fired back, saying, “They’re walking this dangerous path on trying to point out blame on Ebola when, in fact, if you...

    Eric Holder replacement: far-left crackpot Tom Perez rumored to be even more radical than Black Panthers 5th-columnist Holder... can you imagine? 'HUGE' blanket executive amnesty: Expect Harry Reid to order a vote on a broad amnesty in lame-duck sessions, and failing that, he'll suggest we all just lay-down at the feet of Dear Leader as he rams a even-more radical Executive Order amnesty down our throats.  Obamacare's Healthcare.gov online pricing: Healthcare.gov will not include 2015 pricing numbers until mid-November. The open enrollment period for 2015 runs from 11.15.2014 - 2.15.2015, so apparently the info is only available for now on a 'need to...

    It's vitally important to stop Obama's amnesty-by-executive-order now. If we don't stop it now, Obama could legalize millions of illegal aliens and rolling that back is going to be very difficult. Thankfully, there's a way to stop Obama's amnesty right now. To make that happen, I'm announcing the Stop Amnesty Challenge. The winner and runner-up of the Challenge will win cash awards, but more importantly will have done a great public service. Summary of the Challenge The best way to stop amnesty is to challenge its supporters and show them wrong to their audience. If a politician makes a misleading...

    Only a madman would gamble with our lives…our children’s lives…and the entire American economy. Why would President Obama play “Russian Roulette” with the future of our country? It’s a gamble no sane leader would take. The life and death issue is Ebola. The President is more concerned with political correctness (and golf) than taking common sense precautions to prevent a deadly pandemic. Why does this President not see his responsibility is to keep the odds as low as possible? There are three simple, common sense actions any President who cared about American citizens would take:

    Of the 691 cases of EV-D68 confirmed from by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) now in 46 states and the District of Columbia, 14 of these cases are in Texas. On October 9, the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) confirmed that the children with EV-D68 were residents of Anderson, Bexar, Dallas (7), Denton, and Lubbock (4) Counties. One additional confirmed case was in a resident of another state. In Lubbock, the Avalanche-Journal reported an additional case on October 10, although it was not recorded with the DSHS. If confirmed, this would bring the Texas EV-D68...

    Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins has presided for four years over a government with a budget of nearly $1 billion. He has met with President Barack Obama, and he has ordered airplanes to spray insecticide to kill disease-carrying mosquitoes. But after last week, his highest-profile action in office might be an evening drive. Jenkins made international news last Friday when he loaded the family of Ebola patient Thomas Eric Duncan into a Ford Explorer and drove them to an isolated location where they could wait and see whether they had contracted the virus. He wore no protective gear during the...

    Former Democratic pollster Pat Caddell blasted the Republican Party for not making the president’s planned executive amnesty a national issue ... The Republican Party, they’re not called the stupid party for nothing. These people are able to, are willing to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory given the opportunity,” he stated. “It's amazing to me. I've never seen a party that doesn't grab opportunities thrown at it like this,” he declared. And “they [Republicans] should be taking this issue and making it a national referendum issue against every Democrat, and for every Republican in the country.” He speculated that...

    A federal judge is ordering Texas to immediately drop its voter ID law after she found it unconstitutional. In a court filing Saturday, U.S. District Judge Nelva Gonzalez Ramos of Corpus Christi issued a permanent and final injunction against the law, one of the toughest of its kind in the country. A day earlier, the state had asked for clarification about whether law would be in place for the upcoming elections in November. Gonzalez Ramos last week ruled the law was illegal, equating it to a “poll tax” that unfairly targets minority voters.
