At Least Two ‘Border
Kids’ Have Swine Flu
Daily Beast, by Ruben Navarette    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 7/2/2014 11:39:52 AM     Post Reply
‘Immigrants bring disease’ is an old prejudice, but it turns out some of the thousands of children streaming across the border have brought H1N1 with them. Here’s something you don’t hear a journalist say very often: I blew it. I was wrong. I dismissed out of hand the suggestion by anti-immigration activists and right-wing pundits that among the worries associated with the “border kids”—the estimated 52,000 children and teenagers who have crossed the U.S.-Mexico border in the last year or so—was that they carried communicable diseases. “How original” was probably my first thought. Immigrants and fears about disease go together like beans and

Sudanese Christian, Meriam Yehya Ibrahim was sentenced to death for apostacy for leaving Islam. Her brother turned her in. Meriam gave birth to a baby girl, named Maya, inside the prison clinic while she was reportedly chained to a bed. Meriam was not taken to a hospital. She delivered the baby in prison. Meriam was told she would be allowed to nurse her daughter for two years before her sentence of 100 lashes and death by hanging was carried out. She is currently hiding at the US embassy. The family of Meriam Yehya Ibrahim still wants her dead. Middle East Online reported, via Halal

Obama says replenishing Highway
Trust Fund would be patriotic
Los Angeles Times, by Christi Parsons, Michael A. Memoli    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 7/2/2014 11:36:16 AM     Post Reply
In his latest attempt to get Congress to spend money to upgrade America´s roads and bridges, President Obama debuted a new sales pitch Tuesday: patriotism. Standing beside the Francis Scott Key Bridge on a sweltering afternoon, Obama paid homage to the writer of "The Star-Spangled Banner" in a speech about the Highway Trust Fund. "Economic patriotism" dictates that Congress should help states repair and rebuild crucial infrastructure, Obama said, and thus "reward American workers and the businesses that hire them."A good place to start, he said, is the heavily used bridge named for the Baltimore lawyer who wrote the lyrics

Burger King in San Francisco
releases pro-gay ‘Proud Whopper’
Washington Times, by Cheryl K. Chumley    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 7/2/2014 11:34:19 AM     Post Reply
A Burger King in San Francisco has taken its support of LGBT pride week to a new level and released a special sandwich — the Proud Whopper. Burger King is already on record as supporting gay marriage, issuing in the past a “Be Your Way” slogan that played off its popular “Have it Your Way” message. But the specialty sandwich is a new thumbs-up campaign for gays, Time reported. The Proud Whopper is no different in taste, texture or ingredient than the regular Whopper — the message the chain is hoping to convey. The Proud Whopper wrapper reads, once opened, “We are all the same inside.”

Republicans: EPA Rule

While Americans get ready for the thousands of fireworks shows that will be occurring across the country this weekend, Republicans are warning that pending federal water regulations could ruin fireworks displays next year. The Environmental Protection Agency is trying to expand its authority under the Clean Water Act. Republicans warn that the agency’s proposal to expand the definition of “waters of the United States” could allow the EPA to regulate bodies of water on private property. Republicans are now warning that EPA water rules could threaten fireworks by allowing environmental activists to sue and shut down shows across the country.

After protesters block detainee buses,
immigration agents mum on plans

(Video) A day after hundreds of protesters forced three buses carrying 140 immigration detainees away from a Border Patrol processing station in Murrieta, immigration officials are declining to discuss their next move citing “safety and security considerations.”On Tuesday, 100 to 150 protestors met three buses a few blocks from the border patrol station with chants of “Go home” and “We want to be safe.” The buses were carrying immigrant detainees — many of them women and children from Central America — who had recently crossed the border in Texas. They were flown to San Diego by the Department of Homeland

The mother condemned to death in Sudan for marrying a Christian is being prevented from fleeing the country by her callous brother - and could face an entirely new trial. Meriam Ibrahim has been hit with a new petition by Al Samani Al Hadi who has publicly vowed to execute her if he gets the chance. But lawyers for Meriam, a 27-year-old doctor, say that he is just acting out of spite and that he does not have any authority over her. MailOnline can also reveal that Meriam could face an entirely new hearing that could delay her departure by

  


  

Artist Emin´s messy bed
sells for $4.4 million

LONDON -- Artist Tracey Emin has sold her bed - and the disheveled sheets, empty vodka bottles, cigarette butts and discarded condoms were part of the lucrative deal. Emin´s artwork "My Bed" sold for 2.54 million pounds ($4.4 million) at a London auction Tuesday, more than double the pre-sale estimate and four times the previous record for the artist. Emin, who has mined her tumultuous personal life for some of her best-known works, attended the auction and grinned when the hammer came down. The work was sold by collector Charles Saatchi, an early supporter of Emin and other modern British artists.

The Caliphate Restored
Front Page Magazine, by Robert Spencer    Original Article
Posted By: Drive- 7/2/2014 11:14:24 AM     Post Reply
The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) has declared itself a caliphate, renamed The Islamic State, and named its leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the caliph, and demanded that all Muslims worldwide pledge allegiance to him. Al-Baghdadi has called upon all Muslims to relocate to his caliphate to wage war against non-Muslims. Many have ridiculed and denigrated this declaration; few have realized its implications. The restoration of the caliphate has for decades been the central goal of jihad groups worldwide. The caliphate (khilafa) was from the beginnings of Islam until the early twentieth century, at least among Sunnis (who constitute

The family of Linda Rolain, 64, who passed away on Monday, had joined two lawsuits against the State of Nevada and the company that built its troubled online software, Xerox, since April. ´I came in, held her hand,´ her devastated husband of 45 years, Robert, told KTNV. ´I whispered in her ear "I love you, I´m gonna be fine".

How the South Came to
Rise Again: The Civil
Rights Act of 1964

There’s an old saying in the South that “the South shall rise again.” And on July 2, 1964, 50 years ago, it began to do so. It has not stopped since. That day, President Lyndon Johnson signed into law the Civil Rights Act of 1964. It was sweeping, to put it mildly. It outlawed discrimination on the basis of race, color, sex, religion, or national origin. It forbade the unequal application of voter registration requirements, such as literacy tests, and it banned racial segregation in schools, workplaces, and places of public accommodation, such as hotels, theaters, and restaurants.

A 64-year-old Las Vegas woman died Monday after waiting more than two months for insurance coverage and brain surgery because of problems with Nevada’s health care exchange. Linda Rolain died from complications following brain surgery in mid-May, according to her husband, Robert. Since April, her family has joined two lawsuits against the State of Nevada and the company that built its flawed online software, Xerox. Led by Gov. Brian Sandoval, the state launched the Silver State Exchange in October to carry out President Barack Obama’s Affordable Care Act in Nevada. But since October, the exchange has been

Cyberbullies get First Amendment
protection from court

Bullies hiding behind computer screens now have the First Amendment to protect them. The state’s highest court on Tuesday struck down an Albany County law that criminalized cyberbullying, crimping government efforts to crack down on electronic harassment. In a 5-2 ruling, the Court of Appeals ruled that the local law was “overbroad” and trampled free-speech rights of online tormentors. “Although the First Amendment may not give defendant the right to engage in these activities, the text of Albany County’s law envelops far more than acts of cyberbullying against children by criminalizing a variety of constitutionally protected modes of

On Tuesday’s broadcast of Fox News Channel’s “Hannity,” network correspondent Ainsley Earhardt unveiled one of the attack radio spots that aired on stations around the state including WMGO 1370 AM in Canton, MS. The spot urges listeners to participate in the vote and warns if voters fail to do so, it will result in the loss of entitlement benefits and funding for black universities. "If someone tells you that by voting today, you cannot vote in November - it’s just a Tea Party, bald-faced lie." Are you going to let the clock run out on today? By not voting, you are saying

An Arizona Democrat said race is one of the key reasons why Republicans aren’t moving forward on immigration reform. Rep. Raul Grijalva told MSNBC that he sees the influx of illegal immigrants on the southern border, including thousands of unaccompanied minors, as “not necessarily a resource issue, as much as it is the fact that we have no immigration reform out of a broken system.” “And that breakage is what is causing of the isolation of people, it’s causing the break up of families and it is causing less security and less economic growth for this country,” he said. “On

The defiant Mississippi loser

Posted By: Pluperfect- 7/2/2014 10:37:13 AM     Post Reply
It’s been a week since Sen. Thad Cochran (R-Miss.) won the Mississippi Republican primary, but not if you ask Chris McDaniel. The failed Senate challenger hasn’t conceded to the six-term incumbent, and shows no signs of doing so anytime soon. Instead, the state senator is looking into legal routes to challenge the 6,693-vote margin he says was orchestrated through, at best, illegitimate voter targeting, and at worst through illegal vote-buying. Mississippi has no statute to force a recount, so McDaniel’s only recourse to challenge the outcome of an election that conservatives have widely panned is through legal means. He and his supporters

Rick Perry to Obama: Come to the border

Texas Gov. Rick Perry said Wednesday that President Barack Obama must visit the Texas southern border to see the immigration crisis for himself. “If he doesn’t come to the border, I think it’s a real reflection of his lack of concern of what’s really going on there,” Perry said on FOX News’ “FOX and Friends,” noting that Obama is planning to be in Texas next week for fundraisers. “If the President of the United States is really serious about securing that border, we can show him how to do that,” Perry added. “But I haven’t even had a phone call from this president.” Obama is scheduled to be in Austin and Dallas on Wednesday and Thursday for

DENVER – “A disaster in the making.” That’s just one way Secretary of State Scott Gessler describes Colorado’s new $58 million computerized accounting system. The computer endeavor is called CORE (Colorado Operations and Resource Engine). State agencies have been told to start using it Tuesday, July 1. However, internal documents obtained by FOX31 Denver show the system isn’t even close to ready and won’t work as planned. If you receive any state benefits, pay fees or taxes, or are a vendor who does business with Colorado, this does affect you. It’d be tough to find an accountant for any state

HOUSTON, Texas--As illegal immigrants continue to pour across the border, word is spreading in Central America that migrants with children ("family units") will get to stay in the U.S. Texas Congressman Henry Cuellar (D-Laredo, TX) told Breitbart Texas that most Mexican migrants who cross the border illegally are promptly sent back to their home countries--the same should be done to Central American illegal immigrants, he argued. "If we don´t detain and immediately remove them--like we do with Mexican [illegal immigrants]--then they´re going to keep coming," Cuellar said. "If the president wants to do an executive order, this is the right time

A day after President Barack Obama announced that, on his own, he would try to change as many of the nation´s immigration laws as he can, Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) said he gave the President a wish list of executive actions. Appearing on Tuesday´s Morning Joe, Gutierrez said that he and other pro-amnesty advocates gave Obama a "four-page memorandum of different things within the law that he can do" with executive actions. Saying that he expects Obama to be "broad, expansive, and generous" with his use of executive action, Gutierrez suggested that Obama grant temporary amnesty and work permits to the parents

Is same-sex parenting just like grandparents raising their orphaned grandchildren? The nations of the world say no. On second thought, try “Hell no.” But that doesn’t stop the shills for Big Gay, who stand to make billions off expanded gay “adoption” (I use that term loosely), from continuously drawing the lame parallel. Just check out this section of an article that ran in the Daily Beast, by Jay Michaelson, on the United Nations’ recent resolution protecting the rights of the family: So, an amendment was proposed – formally put forward by Uruguay – that would acknowledge that “various forms of the family exist.” This

It’s another case of bureaucrats gone wild, DC mandarins lavishing money on their own offices, and spending more per square foot on renovations to existing, perfectly usable office space than it cost to build lavish buildings like Trump World Tower and the Bellagio Hotel and Casino from scratch. But hey, four story glass staircases and two story waterfalls and sunken gardens aren’t cheap. The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is one of the most powerful and least accountable agencies of the federal government. The intellectual spawn of Senator Elizabeth Warren created by the ill-considered Dodd-Frank law of 2010, when Democrats controlled Congress,

White House advisers lays out scenarios

President Obama promises that the U.S. troops he’s sending to Iraq won’t get into another shooting war, but a top White House adviser has listed several scenarios that would prompt direct military action against Islamic militants. Ben Rhodes, a deputy national security adviser to the president, said the U.S. “has a role to play in a number of different ways” that could result in military engagements in Iraq. The government in Baghdad is fighting militants loyal to the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), and Mr. Obama has sent nearly 500 U.S. troops to protect the U.S. embassy and the airport in Baghdad, and to serve as military advisers.

According to a Quinnipiac poll, a plurality of voters named President Barack Obama as the worst president since World War Two, claiming the title from his predecessor George W Bush. 33% of respondents named Obama as the worst, with Bush coming in at 28%. 13% named Nixon and 8% History’s Greatest Monster, with the rest all escaping under three percent. Ronald Reagan was honored as the best with 35%, with Bill Clinton trailing at 18% and John F. Kennedy at 15%. If Obama’s looking for a silver lining, it’s that at this point of his presidency Bush far outpaced his competitors for

President Barack Obama treats the press like a spoiled child treats his parents. Despite the pampering, he just keeps complaining about them until he gets his way. As America tires of his inflated sense of self-importance while the economy limps and his foreign policy crumbles, Obama travels around the country complaining that the mean old media aren´t complimentary enough. At an event with big donors in May in Chicago, Obama lamented that he — the very essence of reason and nonpartisanship — is lumped in with a fanatical Congress in a tale of gridlocked Washington.

IRS attorneys will be even busier than normal next week, because another federal judge has told them to show up in court July 11 to defend the federal tax agency. They will have to explain to U.S. District Court Judge Reggie Walton why the IRS shouldn´t be required to let an outside expert evaluate whether emails on the computer hard drives of former IRS official Lois Lerner and six colleagues really are lost forever, as the agency recently told Congress. Responding to a motion filed Monday by True the Vote, a Houston-based conservative nonprofit at the center of IRS targeting during
