    Accused of human trafficking, she was actually trying to improve the lives of street children I never lit into Barack Obama more viciously than I did the day we learned how Kayla Mueller died, and it still makes me angry when I think about it. Caught up in a hostage situation with Doctors Without Borders, this young American Christian woman was just trying to help others and hurting absolutely no one. But Obama not only refused to help her, he threatened to prosecute her family if they paid the ransom demanded for her release. So she was tortured and killed....

    -Outline - Rodriguez interviews Obama and at about the 3:20 mark she says that illegals are really citizens since they contribute to USA society and they are fearful of voting. Obama implies (says) it's ok for them to vote and the government doesn't track them and won't come to deport them. Listen for yourself and decide. It is all over Fox Business news
  • Illinois judge agrees to hear lawsuit filed against Ted Cruz stating he should NOT be eligible (tr)

    The question of whether or not Ted Cruz can serve as president of the United States is heading to court. A judge has agreed to hear a lawsuit filed against the presidential hopeful by Illinois voter Lawrence Joyce. CNN reports that the case will be heard in Cook County Circuit Court in Chicago on Friday in response to Joyce's claim that Cruz should not appear on the ballot for next month's Illinois primary because he was born in Canada. Cruz has stated before that he is an American citizen despite being born in Canada and having a Cuban father because...

    The wife of GOP presidential hopeful Ted Cruz today said her husband is “indisputably” a U.S. citizen, calling questions about the Cananian-born senator’s qualifications to run for president a sign of the threat the Texas senator poses to his rivals.“I think this is a sign of Ted winning this race and doing so well that people are looking for things to be a distraction,” Heidi Cruz said in an interview on Boston Herald Radio’s “Morning Meeting” today. “Ted is indisputably a U.S. citizen. He is a natural-born citizen. … He fits that definition without a question.”GOP frontrunner Donald Trump has...

    ...Ted Cruz said...that he is certain that he never owned a Canadian passport,..."Of course not," he told CNN's Dana Bash..."Yes, I'm sure. The media, with all due respect, love to engage in silly sideshows...."Cruz's unequivocal answer follows a claim by rival Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump, who is neck-and-neck with him in Iowa, that the Texas senator has had a Canadian passport. Cruz was born as an American citizen in Canada, and claims he did not know he had Canadian citizenship until informed by a reporter in 2013. "The legal issue is straightforward," he said, calling it a "non-issue." "Listen,...

    That would be a great plan if he wasn’t also making it ten times more expensive to be a US citizen. I’m not sure what comes next. A big concrete wall and barbed wire?Obama is making it easy to come and hard to leave. The only places that do that are prisons and bear traps. It doesn’t say anything good about the American Dream when the country encourages non-taxpayers to come and penalizes taxpayers who want to leave. Americans who are abandoning their citizenship in droves are due to be charged five times more to surrender their passport under government...
  • Pentagon Official: The Obama Drone Kill Memo Is Out And Libertarians Were Right Its Murder

    The Daily Caller ^ | 6/24/2014 | Joseph Miller
    On Monday, the White House memo used to justify drone attacks on U.S. citizens was released, and it appears to confirm the worst suspicions of its libertarian critics. The Obama administration had sought to keep the memo secret, and now we know why: Because there are no checks and balances; there are no classified courts. Indeed, the memo reveals that the president of the United States ordered the targeting killing of U.S. citizens overseas in violation of their constitutional right to due process sans any type of oversight outside of the executive.

    Mariam Yahia Ibrahim Ishag, brought her punishment of death upon herself, said Judge Abbas Mohammed Al-Khalifa: "We gave you three days to recant but you insist on not returning to Islam." "I sentence you to be hanged to death." For good measure, Judge Khalifa ordered the woman to be beaten with 100 lashes of the whip before being hung for "adultery." She's nine months pregnant. They'll permit her to give birth to her baby and wean it before executing her. However, the punishment for "adultery" -- 100 lashes -- will be administered immediately after the birth. The "adultery" in question...

    Many people laughingly remember the image of the Soup Nazi in Seinfeld. If you did anything out of order or that he didnt like, No soup for you! Sadly, thanks to the upcoming Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) in the US, banks around the world are turning away US passport holders, No bank account for you! But you don't even have to do anything wrong other than having been born a US citizen. Decades ago holding a US passport was a ticket to worldwide opportunity. Today it is nearly the opposite. First it started with the erosion of the...

    by Brian Hayes | Top Right News If Mexican President Enrique Pea Nieto's wife gave birth in a Washington, D.C. hospital, no one would ever argue that the child was an American citizen. Similarly, it is ludicrous to state that a Mexican citizen, such as the woman in the story below, who illegally swims across the Rio Grande in labor and gives birth in a Texas hospital, has sired an American citizen. But that's what we currently do, because of a shameful perversion of the 14th Amendment. WATCH:

    Rayman Hussein is believed to be one of up to 100 Americans of Yemeni origin who were forced to sign documents confessing to obtaining US citizenship by deceiftul means. A report published on Tuesday has revealed that an American citizen on Yemeni origin has had his passport revoked under suspicious circumstances by a State Department investigator in the US embassy in Sanaa, Yemen. Rayman Hussein, who came to the US with his family in 1993 at the age of 10, and became a US citizen two years later, was forced to sign a document declaring that he had obtained the...

    An American citizen who was arrested by Egyptian security forces in August in El Arish, in the Sinai Peninsula, has died in jail after apparently committing suicide. James Henry Lunn, a former US Army officer, was detained in the north of the restive Sinai Peninsula on 27th August. He was one of nine foreign citizens detained that month, as security forces cracked down on violent protests by supporters of ousted President Mohammed Morsi. The circumstances of his arrest are somewhat murky. At the time, Egyptian authorities said he was arrested for breaking the curfew imposed by the interim government as...

    I'm a US Citizen, natural-born and raised, dammit. And it's a distinction that makes a difference to me. Apparently, though, "US citizenship" is an antiquated device; a relic from an earlier age when Obama's "Founding Founders" were all racists who never embraced or never could have conceived of the transnational "world without borders" view favored by our current President and the creepy, neo-totalitarian progressive radicals that prop him up. Here is the Obama White House attempting to quell concerns over the intrusive reach of his NSA/Prism operations. Note the terminology: President Obama: "If you are a U.S. person, the NSA...

Attorney General Mike DeWine said in a statement that "forensic scientists worked throughout the night to confirm that Castro is the father of the six-year-old girl born in captivity to one of the kidnapping victims."

I have asked Mr. Brennan if he believed that the President has the power to authorize lethal force, such as a drone strike, against a U.S. citizen on U.S. soil, and my question remains unanswered. I will not allow a vote on this nomination until Mr. Brennan openly responds to the questions and concerns my colleagues and I share, Paul said. These issues must be discussed...

    Attorney General Eric Holder Monday presented the Obama administrations most detailed justification for armed drone strikes against Al Qaeda leaders, arguing that the U.S. government doesnt legally need judicial review to kill terrorist operatives overseas even when those individuals are American citizens. Its clear that United States citizenship alone does not make such individuals immune from being targeted. But it does mean that the government must take into account all relevant constitutional considerations with respect to United States citizens even those who are leading efforts to kill innocent Americans, Holder said in a speech delivered at Northwestern University...

    Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. is expected Monday to provide the most detailed explanation yet of the Obama administrations secret decision-making leading up to the targeted killing of a U.S. citizen last year in Yemen. Holders speech Monday afternoon at Northwestern Law School in Chicago is the result of months of internal Obama administration deliberations over how much can be made public about the decisions leading up to the strike. The Justice Department wrote a still-classified memo that provided the legal rationale for the targeting of American-born Anwar al-Awlaki that also included intelligence material about his operational role within...

    A decade ago, Shyima Hall was smuggled into the United States as a 10-year-old slave, forced to cook and clean inside the home of a wealthy Irvine family and, at night, sleep on a squalid mattress in a windowless garage. On Thursday, the Egyptian-born 22-year-old stood before a federal judge in Montebello with nearly 900 others and was sworn in as naturalized U.S. citizen. The ceremony capped a hard-scrabble journey that began with Hall's rescue, wound through the foster care system and ended with her living on her own, working, and with ambitions to become a federal agent. "I went...
