Murrieta Town Hall Vents Anger
At Feds Over Alien Transfers
Breitbart California, by Joel B. Pollak    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 7/3/2014 9:11:40 AM     Post Reply
A town hall in Murrieta, CA on Wednesday evening erupted into anger at the federal government over its failure to enforce immigration laws, as counter-demonstrators outside showed support for the illegal aliens--many of them women and children--being transported to the community from Border Patrol facilities in Texas. Local KCAL9 News reported that 750 residents gathered inside the local high school, and hundreds were turned away. The town had been the scene of a dramatic confrontation earlier in the week between over 100 demonstrators and buses carrying 140 illegal aliens. The protestors, waving signs and American flags, blocked a road and turned

Is Obama acting like a former president?
Washington Post, by Ed Rogers    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 7/3/2014 9:10:31 AM     Post Reply
It looks like we have officially entered the world of the post-Obama presidency. President Obama’s recent speeches and remarks make it obvious that he is not making any serious effort to govern or to drive world events. Except for covering the basics, he seems to have taken something like an early retirement. We can look back at his West Point speech, which may go down in history as his first post-presidency speech, and the endpoint of an Obama foreign policy. During that speech, the president’s reflections on his foreign policy consisted of making excuses and trying to explain himself instead

6 Stupid Arguments About Hobby

The Supreme Court’s decision today affirming the right of business owners to run their businesses in accordance with their religious beliefs has caused no small amount of consternation among the anti-science, functionally illiterate Left. The Supreme Court just banned birth control forever. Male justices just imprisoned women across America. If you don’t buy my stuff for me, it means you want to ban that stuff. And so on and so forth. Thanks to the wonder of the Internet, we have been given a wealth of riches when it comes to stupid arguments from stupid people. Here are the 6 dumbest

The American nurse, 19, arrested at Denver
airport as she prepared ´to join and fight

A 19-year-old Denver woman has been arrested on terrorism charges for allegedly plotting to travel to Syria and join an Islamist extremist she had met online and was planning to marry. Shannon Maureen Conley was arrested in April while trying to board a flight to Turkey with the alleged goal of meeting up with members of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria group, also known as ISIS. According to a criminal complaint filed with the U.S. District Court for the District of Colorado, Conley conspired to commit an offense against the United States. When questioned by officials, the teenager freely admitted that

If you’re choosing one person who best represents America’s journalistic establishment, it’d be hard to top Steve Coll, a former Washington Post reporter and managing editor who’s now dean of Columbia University’s journalism school; a member of the Pulitzer Prize board; and a staff writer for the New Yorker. On Wednesday, Coll posted a piece on the New Yorker’s website in which he argued that if the Supreme Court were to consistently apply the religious-freedom principle it endorsed in the Hobby Lobby case, it would have to allow an essentially Taliban-owned U.S. corporation to deny insurance coverage for polio vaccines

Where Are Libertarians
When You Need Them?
Power Line, by John Hinderaker    Original Article
Posted By: MDMuskrat- 7/3/2014 8:28:12 AM     Post Reply
Every major strand of American conservatism includes a strong libertarian streak, because the value of liberty is fundamental to just about all conservative thought. But today, especially, is said to be the libertarians’ moment. What once was a fringe movement, politically speaking, has moved front and center in our political life. And yet, in my view, libertarians of both the capital L and small l varieties punch below their weight. They have not contributed as much as they should to the conservative movement. This is partly because libertarians tend to founder on foreign policy, where many are merely modern-day isolationists. But

World Cup drunkenness shocks FIFA official

FIFA´s No. 2 official has said he´s "amazed" by the levels of drunkenness in Brazil´s World Cup stadiums, reviving a debate over whether alcohol sales should have been allowed at matches in the first place. In an interview with Brazil´s sports television network SporTV, Jerome Valcke acknowledged Monday that "maybe there were too many people who were drunk" at the matches and pointed to the connection between inebriation and violence. Brazil banned alcohol sales at soccer matches in 2003 in a bid to curb fan violence. But Budweiser is a major World Cup sponsor and the tournament´s organizer, FIFA, insisted Brazil

Non-Citizen Driver’s Licenses
Bogging Down Colorado DMV
CBS News, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: Drive- 7/3/2014 8:22:56 AM     Post Reply
DENVER - A new kind of driver’s license for non-citizens will soon be available but even before the Department of Motor Vehicles can issue them, advance requests are clogging up the system. Tens of thousands of drivers in Colorado are calling the DMV to register for the new ID which is clogging the system. Those licenses are the result of a law passed last year that aims to improve public safety by making sure every driver in Colorado, regardless of their legal status, has a license. The law doesn’t take effect until Aug. 1 but the DMV began making appointments

‘Clinton: the musical’

New York - It’s tough being Hillary Clinton. Her book’s a flop, she’s angered ordinary Americans with crass remarks about money and now her husband’s sex life is a New York musical. The lofty ideals and sordid scandal of the eight-year Clinton White House have been rolled into a two-hour, two-act musical satire making its U.S. premiere in the Big Apple on July 18. Looked upon affectionately as one of America’s best presidents despite his human flaws, Clinton treads the boards played by two characters: super-smart statesman William and bed-hopping Bill. “Sunday morning” Bill dreams of universal health care, welfare

NH Supreme Court: Lesbian can

The New Hampshire Supreme Court said Wednesday that a lesbian can claim parental rights to a child born to her former partner. In the unanimous decision, the five-member court overturned the rulings in Derry Family Division court and ordered the judge to decide whether the non-biological parent — referred to in the court case as Susan B — had taken enough actions to qualify as the child’s parent. If judged a parent, the Supreme Court said Susan can intervene in adoption proceedings that her former partner — Melissa D — and Melissa’s husband have initiated.

Iran Cheats on Oil Export Caps

Reuters on Tuesday published figures showing that Iran has, for the eighth straight month, violated crude export restrictions set by the interim Joint Plan of Action (JPA) agreement. Reuters cited experts suggesting that the Obama administration has been deliberately looking the other way as Tehran ignored the caps. Under the agreement signed in November between Iran and six world powers, which came into effect in January, Iran´s exports should average a maximum 1 million barrels per day (bpd) through to July 20. Iran´s oil exports were 1.21 million bpd in June, down from 1.33 million bpd in May, one of

It´s a light pre-holiday public schedule for President Obama on Thursday. In addition to normal meetings and briefings, Obama is scheduled to have lunch with Vice President Biden. No public appearances are scheduled for Thursday, at least so far. On Friday, the Fourth of July, the president and first lady Michelle Obama are scheduled to host a White House barbecue for military service members and their families.

NTSB Stands by Cause of
TWA Flight 800 Explosion

The National Transportation Safety Board has denied a petition for reconsideration of its findings in the investigation of the 1996 crash of TWA flight 800. The board said Wednesday that a team of investigators not part of the original investigation has confirmed NTSB´s previous finding that an oxygen buildup in a partially empty fuel tank caused an explosion that destroyed the plane in-flight off the coast of Long Island, New York. The TWA 800 Project filed the petition. It says a "detonation or high-velocity explosion" could have caused the crash. Among other evidence, the group cites witnesses who say they saw a

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), a federal agency tasked with enforcing workplace discrimination laws, is suing a private American business for firing a group of Hispanic and Asian employees over their inability to speak English at work, claiming that the English-language requirement in a U.S. business constitutes “discrimination.” Judicial Watch reported Tuesday that the government is accusing Wisconsin Plastics, Inc. of violating Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which prohibits discrimination based on “national origin.” The government argues this includes the “linguistic characteristics of a national origin group.” Irene Garcia, the blog editor and Spanish media liaison for

Imagine a July 4th tradition like Hollywood’s where each year the Oscars pay homage to fallen stars. Liberty-loving Americans would fete public servants who’ve honored Thomas Jefferson’s rule to “leave no authority existing not responsible to the people.” Might celebrating trustworthy stewards inspire Americans to Think Again about our Founders’ insights, ingraining a culture that prizes democratic accountability and lawful government, the one that transformed our risky political experiment into history’s freest and most prosperous society? We’d be celebrating two recently passed stalwarts who put country and constitutional order before party: Sen. Howard Baker, the Senate Watergate Committee’s ranking Republican,

Poll: Obama is the least popular
president since the Second
World War. Here´s why

Posted By: Attercliffe- 7/3/2014 7:48:01 AM     Post Reply
I know that I can sometimes come off as unrelentingly anti-Obama, but here’s proof that one or two Americans dislike him, too. The Quinnipiac University´s latest presidential poll says that Barack Obama is the least favourite president since the Second World War. [Snip] These results are no great surprise to those who have been tallying the administration’s mistakes. People have long since stopped trying to define the foreign policy strategy of the Obama administration as it responds slowly to fast changing events, chases poll numbers, surges, withdraws and raises expectations with almost a sadist’s glee in dashing them.

Heavy rain, gusty winds and dangerous rip currents are in the forecast today as Hurricane Arthur churns just off the South Carolina coast. Arthur was upgraded from a tropical storm to a Category 1 hurricane about 5 a.m. today and is expected to pass due-east of Charleston early this afternoon, according to Michael Emlaw, meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Charleston. "We´re just on the fringe of it," Emlaw said. "Maybe we´ll get some 40-mph winds."

President Obama Doesn’t Understand
Representative Government
The Federalist, by Robert Tracinski    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 7/3/2014 7:24:50 AM     Post Reply
Once again, President Obama has announced that he’s going to bypass Congress in order to impose his own agenda through executive orders, this time on immigration. Does this guy even understand how representative government works? Here’s how it works: the representatives govern. In other words, Congress makes the laws. But Obama seems to think that when push comes to shove, the president is the only representative the people need. Thus, he declared that “America cannot wait” for Congress, as if he speaks for America, rather than the people actually elected by the people to represent them in something called—you guessed it—the House

One day recently, Andrea Sangrey, an oncology pharmacist, mixed up two chemotherapy drugs while preparing a prescription. She could easily have kept quiet about her mistake: the error was caught by a colleague before the medicine reached the patient, and no one needed to be any the wiser. Instead, she immediately reported herself to the hospital management. “Yes, I reported myself,” she says. “I put in a drug called Paclitaxel and it should have been Docetaxel. It could have caused harm to the patient. I was a little nervous filing a report on myself, but the reaction didn’t feel punitive. It

Britain´s airports are on terror alert amid fears Islamist groups are working on an undetectable ´stealth bomb´ which could be implanted inside an extremist´s body to bring down an airliner. Heightened precautions were brought in at terminals around the UK this morning after reports that two terror networks are trying to produce a new explosive, which may have already been tested by militants in Syria. It is feared the groups may be putting together a ´non-metallic´ device, which could potentially be surgically-implanted inside a terrorist´s body and would be almost invisible to current security checks.

Saudi Arabia has placed 30,000 soldiers on its northern border after 2,500 Iraqi soldiers quit their posts, leaving the country open to the threat of a lightning advance by ISIS militants. King Abdullah ordered all necessary measures to protect the kingdom against potential ´terrorist threats´ as the possibility of ISIS taking yet more territory in the Middle East appeared to increase. Saudi Arabia--which is the world´s top oil exporter--shares a 500-mile border with Iraq, where Sunni insurgents have seized numerous towns and cities in a campaign to establish an Islamic state which has been condemned as too brutal even by

Prime Minister´s Question Time (PMQs) is a big turn off. So says Mumsnet, the website for women who have had babies, are thinking about having babies, or who are just really into the idea that motherhood is such a blessed state in and of itself that it confers special insight and must be deferred to as often as possible on every conceivable occasion. One politician who predictably agrees with them is milksop deputy prime minister Nick Clegg. Endorsing a petition signed by 56,000 Mumsnet users demanding that PMQs be made more accessible and less combative, he appeared at a specially

Obama and the Culture of Death

By its own admission, the Arab world loves death more than it loves life. Consider that "during all periods of their history, the ancient Egyptians seem to have spent much of their time thinking of death and making provisions for their afterlife. The vast size ... and the ubiquity of their funerary monuments bear testimony to this obsession." Consider that the Palestinian world teaches its children to embrace shahid, or martyrdom. It is an aberrant culture where parents celebrate their own children´s deaths by the promotion of suicide terrorism.

Why Did Bill Ayers Agree
to an interrogation?

Posted By: tisHimself- 7/3/2014 5:46:30 AM     Post Reply
This past week, Fox News, Megyn Kelly, and Dinesh D’Souza gave a platform to an entity that hates America and our way of life. Seems the prospect of smokin’ out a snake like Bill Ayers was too good to pass up. Getting an exclusive one-on-one with a crazy, violent communist with a small c was quite a coup for Kelly and D’Souza...or was it? Since lying and deceit generally benefit the liar, we have to ask, ”What was in it for Bill Ayers?” A mea culpa for past crimes? Hardly. After listening to Ayers, we must conclude: once a psychopath, always a psychopath.

It´s a story that´s been told before. After a failed bid for the White House, the long-serving senator returned to Capitol Hill. As the years wore on, he sparred with the president, used his name recognition to push his pet causes and became a power broker able to step in when party leadership failed. In many ways, Sen. John McCain has followed the path laid out by Sen. Ted Kennedy after his unsuccessful attempt to wrest the Democratic nomination from Jimmy Carter in 1980. But there are differences between the Arizona Republican and the Massachusetts Democrat, and not just those of party
