The IDF, the Israeli military, said its goal in crossing into northern Gaza was to dismantle some of the...

The Homeland Security buses transporting the illegal immigrants from the airport to the Murrieta Border Patrol Station did not show up. The protesters have been told that the buses are going to San Jacinto. Jim said the protesters are leaving. He, Syncro, and Chris are going to wait a while to make sure this isn't a diversion to disperse the protesters. He said the Fox News truck is there. That's all for now.

    Our usurping president is willfully neglecting to enforce the law and even more frightening, he's forcefully forbidding our law enforcement agencies from enforcing the law and rather is enforcing his own "dream act" that he proposed to the congress and congress rejected. President Obama is in fact legislating and enforcing his own law. This cannot be allowed to stand! Our borders are being swamped and overrun by any illegal alien, drug runner, disease carrier, criminal or terrorist that wishes to enter the country. Our nation is being flooded by this illegal alien invasion. And Obama is making it happen. This...

    Obamacare has pushed us over the entitlements tipping point. In 2011 some 49.2 percent of U.S. households received benefits from one or more government programs—about 151 million out of an estimated 306.8 million Americans—according to U.S. Census Bureau data released last October. Currently, around 6 million to 7 million Americans who have signed up for Obamacare are receiving taxpayer-provided subsidies (though the administration’s numbers cannot be trusted, it’s all we have to work with). There are another 3 million who have signed up for Medicaid. That means some 10 million Americans—or a total of about 161 million—are now getting government...

    (CNN) -- The national controversy over a surge of Central American immigrants illegally crossing the U.S. border established a new battleground this week in a small Southern California town, where angry crowds stopped detained migrants from entering their community. The sentiment carried over to a raucous Wednesday night meeting at a Murrieta high school auditorium. Border Patrol and immigration officials got an earful. "This is an invasion," attendee Heidi Klute said before a full house. :snip: Local politicians appear to be in lockstep with their constituents.

    The campaign of Republican Mississippi Sen. Thad Cochran attempted to hold a conference call with the media on Wednesday, but was forced to cancel it midway through after someone hijacked the call with provocative questions about race. Cochran adviser Austin Barbour had been giving remarks to reporters for about seven minutes during the call when an unnamed person interrupted and started asking questions. “I’d like to know if black people were harvesting cotton, why do you think it’s ok to harvest their votes?” the activist said. “They’re not animals.”

    The Washington Times ^ | Tuesday, July 1, 2014 | Rowan Scarborough
    The Obama administration’s just-released criminal complaint against the alleged mastermind of the Benghazi terrorist attacks provides a final contradiction to its own evolving explanations for what happened that day. The Justice Department’s indictment spells out a calculated conspiracy by Ahmed Abu Khatallah and associates to attack the U.S. diplomatic mission and CIA annex, which killed four Americans. The indictment might be viewed as a death knell for a theory that the attack resulted from a spontaneous protest against a U.S.-produced video. Now in custody, Khatallah was a commander of Ansar al-Sharia in Benghazi, a U.S.-designated terrorist group, and is himself...

This comes after 25,000-35,000 Democrat votes helped push Thad Cochran to victory over Chris McDaniel (by 6,880 votes) in the June 24 runoff. The McDaniel campaign has already found 1,000 examples in one county of Democrats who voted in the June 3rd primary as Democrats and then crossed over into the Republican primary this week. This is illegal and their votes should not be counted. Update—– Lindsay Krout, an independent contractor working...
