  • House revives, approves border crisis bill – as Obama vows to ‘act alone’

    Fox News ^ | 1 Aug 2014
    The House late Friday revived and approved a Republican-authored border crisis bill after GOP leaders hurriedly resolved an internal battle that scuttled the vote a day earlier – but with the Senate on recess and the House soon to follow, there’s little chance of any bill reaching President Obama’s desk until the fall. The president now is vowing to act unilaterally to address the illegal immigration issue. The House legislation was approved on a 223-189 vote. The new version of the bill adds additional funding for the National Guard and includes policy changes meant to speed deportations of illegal immigrant...

    In the middle of a tough press conference covering a wide range of difficult topics — the situation in Ukraine, the Israeli-Hamas conflict, the CIA’s admission that it had spied on the Senate, ISIS, Ebola, etc. — Barack Obama lost his legendary cool and asked the White House pool why they weren’t grilling him about the recent news about the rebounding economy, which he began the presser with. “I think it’s useful for me to end by just reminding folks that in my first term, if I had a press conference like this, typically, everybody would want to ask about...

    A photo of President Obama’s half-brother, Malik, who served as the best man at his brother’s wedding, has surfaced showing him wearing a special scarf emblazoned with anti-Israel slogans used by the terror group Hamas. One saying on the scarf: “WE ARE COMING,” the Daily Mail reported. And the other: “From the river to the sea.” That reference is to Palestinians’ beliefs that land currently occupied by Israel — from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea — actually belongs to them. The photo was taken in 2010 at an event in Yemen and posted on the website of...
  • Barack Obama: After 9-11, the “US Tortured Some Folks”

    At his press conference today Barack Obama accused the United States of torture. Obama drops drone bombs instead. In his mind, it’s more ethical. The AP reported, via Free Republic: President Barack Obama says in the immediate aftermath of 9/11, the United States did things that were wrong and crossed the line. He says, quote, “we tortured some folks.” Obama is commenting on a Senate investigation into the CIA’s interrogation techniques. A report on that investigation’s results is expected to be released in the coming weeks. Obama says it’s important to remember how horrified Americans were after 9/11. But he...

    The Army says it will soon notify 550 majors that they must leave the service by next spring as part of a budget-driven downsizing of the service. Some of those soldiers will get the bad news while they are on the front lines in Afghanistan. The Army has close to 514,000 soldiers now, but due to budget cuts must be down to 510,000 by October, and down to 490,000 by October 2015.

    President Barack Obama was halfway out the door, joking with his counterparts in the press that he had not yet been wished a happy birthday, when a chorus of uniform questions from the assembled reporters forced him to address the recent admission that CIA Director John BrennanÂ’s intelligence agency had improperly spied on the Senate.On Thursday, the CIA admitted that intelligence operatives tapped into computers linked to staffers with the Senate Intelligence Committee in March. Those computers contained documents pertaining to an ongoing investigation into the agencyÂ’s Bush-era enhanced interrogation techniques. The report, which is set to be declassified,...

    Townhall ^ | 08/01/2014 | Conn Carroll
    Speaker John Bohner (R-OH) announced this afternoon that the House will not be voting on his $659 million border bill before adjourning for the August recess. This is a wise decision since giving President Obama any additional funds for the border would just make it easier for him to enact his next unilateral amnesty. Supposedly, Obama has the legal authority to grant temporary amnesty (aka "deferred action" or "non priority enforcement" status) to anyone he wants to, whenever he wants to, based on his inherent "prosecutorial discretion" as the nation's chief law enforcement officer. Congress, this legal theory reasons, has...

    An independent panel appointed by the Pentagon and Congress said Thursday that President Obama’s strategy for sizing the armed services is too weak for today’s global threats. The National Defense Panel called on the president to dump a major section of his 2014 Quadrennial Defense Review (QDR) and write a broader strategy that requires the military to fight on multiple fronts at once. It also said the shrinking U.S. armed forces, which are being downsized to fit that strategy and budget cuts, is a “serious strategic misstep on the part of the United States.” The forces’ numbers spelled out in...

Broaddus was being arraigned in court over a drug charge when Judge McLaughlin made the bizarre remarks, according to the Kentucky Center for Investigative Reporting (video below). Judge McLaughlin stated twice that the T-shirt of the President of the United States of America was “not helping” Broaddus' cause. “He’s lucky to get out of here alive,” added Judge McLaughlin. “Did you see his t-shirt?

Brig. Gen. Markus Laubenthal from Germany's Bundeswehr will report to Lt. Gen. Donald Campbell, the U.S. commander for U.S. Army Europe, known as USAREUR, with headquarters in Wiesbaden, Germany. "This is a bold and major step forward in USAREUR's commitment to operating in a multinational environment with our German allies," Gen. Campbell said.

    On Thursday, Barack Obama signed an executive order that allows for the apprehension, detention, or conditional release of individuals with certain severe acute respiratory diseases, not including influenza. The executive order modifies one signed in 2003 by George Bush that allowed for the detention and quarantine of those with SARS. "Severe acute respiratory syndromes, which are diseases that are associated with fever and signs and symptoms of pneumonia or other respiratory illness, are capable of being transmitted from person to person, and that either are causing, or have the potential to cause, a pandemic, or, upon infection, are highly likely...

    It's come to this. Russia is turning to Twitter to drop a sissy bomb on President Obama, using photos to challenge the manliness of America's commander in chief, while pumping up their main man, President Vladimir Putin. The post by Russia's deputy prime minister Dmitry Rogozin included side-by-side images of the two presidents. In one, Putin is confidently holding a majestic leopard. In the other, a notably younger Obama is holding a small, fluffy dog. The caption: "We have different values and allies."

"The good news is the economy clearly is getting stronger things are getting better," said Obama. Obama highlighted the fact the country has seen a "six month streak with at least 200,000 new jobs each month." "That's the first time that's happened since 1997," he said. Obama described this as part of "the longest streak of private sector job creation in our history."

He should, while there is still time despite multiple fund raisers, photo ops, vacations and golf outings. It would require only a simple stroke of His mighty pen. Should He find the time in His exhausting schedule, a joint photo op with Iranian President Rouhani and even His Esteemed Holiness Ali Khamenei, the Supreme Leader of Iran, would be appropriate.

The three soldiers from the Maglan commando unit who were killed on Tuesday in the southern Gaza Strip, were buried in the rubble of a UN clinic. They entered the building to seal a terror tunnel whose entry shaft was located inside the clinic. A Hamas terrorist was inside the tunnel waiting for them. He detonated the building. Works out that Hamas had booby-trapped the structure, hiding 12 barrels with 80...

    The Obama administration’s four-year defense strategy lacks funding needed for fulfilling global military missions and the U.S. military faces “high risk” in the world unless changes are made, according to a bipartisan report by a congressionally backed panel of defense experts. The report by the National Defense Panel, led by former Defense Secretary William Perry and retired United States Army Gen. John Abizaid, criticized the Pentagon’s Quadrennial Defense Review for outlining military responsibilities that cannot be met because of sharp defense funding cuts. The report concluded that the capabilities called for in the QDR “clearly exceed the budget resources made...

About 9,500 people are signed up for appointments through the next 90 days to get the documents, with more getting scheduled every day. Both people in the country illegally and those who have temporary legal status will qualify. The demand for the licenses...

    There was high drama on the Senate floor this evening. Harry Reid brought on for a vote President Obama’s $2.7 billion proposal to support illegals from Central America who are flooding across the border, in the form of a supplemental budget request. An extremely knowledgeable Senate insider offers this blow-by-blow account of what happened: It required 60 votes to waive that point of order. After failing to table the filled amendment tree, Sessions raised the point of order. Appropriations Committee Chair Mikulski, author of the legislation, moved to waive all points of order on the bill. Dems failed to waive...

  • When All Is Lost: Blame The Tea Party!

    Only two things are certain in life: death and taxes. Well, not exactly. I'm always dumbfounded when the Tea Party – basically the old conservative wing of the Republican Party – is routinely and viscously slandered as racists, extremists, and blamed for every misfortune or injustice to befall America. What is conveniently concealed or transposed by puppets of propaganda, premeditated with extreme prejudice I might add, is that our members are nothing more than staunch Reaganites: loyal to a man who is largely considered one of the greatest Presidents in American history by Republicans, Independents and moderate Democrats alike. Yet,...

    Breitbart's Big Government ^ | July 31, 2014 | Matthew Boyle
    (VIDEO-AT-LINK)Polling data compiled by Tea Party Patriots and provided exclusively to Breitbart News shows that a majority of Republican voters think Republicans standing strong on immigration is more important than repealing Obamacare, getting to the bottom of the Benghazi or IRS scandals—or anything else for that matter. When asked by TPP’s pollster which issue they think is the important for Republicans in Congress to deal with, 34.6 percent of GOP voters said stopping the flow of illegal immigrants across our southern border. Stopping Obama’s “illegal overreach” with executive power came in a distant second with 24 percent of GOP voters...

    First up, I think any friend of our embattled ally Israel has to be outraged by how President Obama and his top aides are treating the clashes now underway with Hamas in Gaza. From their very first responses to the crisis, you would almost think the administration was supporting the terrorists of Hamas over Israel.

    Weeks after Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins said three Dallas County facilities would be used to temporarily shelter 2,000 migrant children at the border, he reversed course at a press conference held Thursday afternoon at the Cathedral Shrine of the Virgin of Guadalupe in downtown Dallas. Said Jenkins, the number of children coming across the border had dropped from 300 a day in June to 150 a day in July, and there are now reports of “bed vacancies” at facilities along the border. The drop in numbers, said Jenkins, has allowed federal officials to reduce the backlog of children needing...
