Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), who just returned from Afghanistan with Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), says the intelligence community is unified in its assessment that the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS or ISIL) is a direct threat to the United States. “According to director of national intelligence, the FBI director and most of our intelligence community, ISIS presents a direct threat to the homeland in Syria, now Iraq,” Graham told CBS on Sunday. “Americans and Western Europeans are going to help their cause. And they can flow back here. So, yes, they are a direct threat to the

California’s Hydromania

Two events now characterize the California agrarian heartland, the richest and most productive farm belt in the world. One, of course, is the third year of drought. I refer here to nature’s lack of rain and snow. But also factor in the state’s additional man-made drought, through diversions of precious stored reservoir water from agriculture and community use to environmental causes that demand more river water must flow out to the sea. The state’s environmental fanatics over thirty years ago cancelled the critical tertiary phases of the California Water Project and the federal Central Valley Project. I guess those in the Bay

Ultra Facepalm: Watch Americans
Struggle to Answer Even One Question
On the U.S. Citizenship Test

(Video) What hopeful Americans are asked on a U.S. citizenship test are pretty run-of-the-mill questions that most of us learned in school: How many Supreme Court justices are there? Who was president during World War I? Who is the current vice president? Seems easy enough, right? But when native-born Americans were asked those questions and others, they had a lot of trouble. From Mic.com: Sad as they may be, the video’s results have been replicated before. A USA Today survey in 2012 found that only 65% of native-born Americans could correctly answer 6 out of 10 immigration test questions correctly.



McCain: Cut Aid to Countries
Fueling Immigration Crisis

A GOP architect of the Senate’s immigration plan is calling for at least threatening to cut aid to Central American countries that don’t take steps to stop the flow of unaccompanied migrant children to the United States. “We should tell these countries in Central America that no more aid, no more assistance, no nothing until they stop this from happening,” Arizona Sen. John McCain told KFYI radio in Phoenix. It’s been widely reported that most of the children come from Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala. “And tell our friends in Mexico to secure their border, their Southern border as well as their Northern

An unidentified man was killed Thursday night in San Antonio while waiting to board an Amtrak train to Houston. He was allegedly beaten to death by a large man who witnesses observed stating, “I just like killing someone.” The victim was a white male in his mid-fifties who weighed about 150 pounds, according to an Amtrack employee who spoke with Breitbart Texas on condition of anonymity. The alleged assailant was described as a black male weighing approximately 350 pounds. The conductor of the eastbound train told the source he witnessed the victim sitting on a bench by himself waiting to

‘Illegal’ Is The New ‘N-Word’
Washington Free Beacon, by Larry O´Connor    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 7/7/2014 1:05:14 PM     Post Reply
CNN’s Sally Kohn says using the term “illegal” to describe anyone who enters or stays in America illegally is tantamount to employing a racial slur such as the “n-word” or the “f-word” as a disparaging term for a homosexual man. You could see this one coming a mile away. As the border crisis grows and politicians, pundits, and media personalities debate and discuss the problem of the 50,000+ unaccompanied alien children who’ve illegally entered our country over the past several months, leave it to liberal commentators to focus their arguments on the appropriate politically correct euphemisms used to identify the

Appeals Court says to give
´dreamers´ licenses

PHOENIX — Calling the state policy motivated by animosity, the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals this morning ordered that "dreamers´´ be allowed to get Arizona driver´s licenses, at least for the time being. In a unanimous decision, the court rejected arguments by Gov. Jan Brewer that she was entitled to issue an executive order two years ago denying licenses to those in the federal government´s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. The court ordered U.S. District Court Judge David Campbell, who had initially denied an injunction on behalf of the dreamers, to direct the state Department of Transportation to

Washington needs more money and if it doesn’t get it, your morning commute will become: a) more expensive b) more unpleasant c) both The problem, you see, is that the Highway Trust Fund is "going broke,” by the Beltway’s curious definition of the phrase. It is sort of the way that after a round of painful “cuts,” spending somehow still goes up. The Highway Trust Fund takes in more than 18 cents on every gallon of gasoline sold in this country, so there is plenty of revenue. Just not enough to meet Washington’s needs and desires. People are driving more

Good news, everyone! The New

´real´ IRS scandal

When disgraced former IRS official Lois Lerner first admitted in 2013 during a staged apology that her agency had targeted conservative groups, a few news organizations scrambled immediately to help the White House manage its damage control efforts. And as the scandal continues to plod along, Congress holding one hearing after another, these same news groups haven´t let up in their defense of the White House or the IRS. Take, for example, the New York Times´ latest (and familiar) defense of the IRS.

President Obama´s approval ratings continue to sink to fresh lows as a growing number of Americans turn away from the harbinger of the tired and worn-out message of “hope and change.” But it´s not because of the White House´s ham-fisted handling of a myriad of scandals, including the Internal Revenue Service´s targeting of conservative groups, the 2012 terrorist attacks on U.S. facilities in Benghazi, Libya, the National Security Agency´s ever-growing surveillance program, the White House´s decision to circumvent Congress and release five Taliban officers in exchange Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl or the still-brewing scandal involving the Department of Veterans Affairs. No,

Paterson — Residents of a violence-plagued Paterson neighborhood formed an impromptu rally just hours after a 12-year-old girl was struck by a stray bullet and declared brain-dead. Genesis Rincon, a student at School 21, was riding a scooter with two friends Saturday night on Rosa Parks Boulevard near Warren Street when she was shot in the head, according to Paterson police. She remains on life support at St. Joseph´s Hospital as her family finalizes plans to donate her organs. (Snip) Shootings occur almost nightly in the Fourth Ward, residents told The Record.

Idaho Republican Rep. Raul Labrador got into a testy exchange on Sunday’s “Meet the Press” with host David Gregory over the issue of immigration reform and what to do with the thousands of unaccompanied children who have come to the U.S. illegally from Central America. Before Labrador came on the program, Homeland Security chief Jeh Johnson was on the program to discuss the same issues. The appearance prompted the congressman to suggest that “Meet the Press” needs to change its famous slogan. “I kept thinking [during the Johnson interview] that you need to change your slogan at the beginning of your show,”

Suzanne Alworth of Verona remembers the glory days of Catholic schools. She remembers classrooms packed with close to 40 children in blue-and-white plaid uniforms. She remembers the nuns who taught her at St. Cassian School in Upper Montclair. And she remembers the families of brothers and sisters and children and grandchildren who all attended Immaculate Conception High School in Montclair, where she graduated in 1979. Thirty-five years later, Immaculate Conception is fighting to stay open. The school is $900,000 in debt, enrollment is less than half of the building’s capacity and the Archdiocese of Newark will close

Richard Martinez, father of Santa Barbara victim Christopher Michaels-Martinez, is launching a nationwide push for gun control and claims its passage will make his "son´s death mean something." According to The Des Moines Register, Martinez said the heinous crime at Sandy Hook Elementary "didn´t affect [him]." Because of that, he views himself as "responsible" for his son´s death in Santa Barbara. And he believes Americans at large share in the guilt: "All of those kids died and none of us did anything." So he is launching a gun control campaign. Martinez says he does not yet know how the gun

PHOENIX — An appeals court blocked Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer’s policy of denying driver’s licenses to young immigrants who have gotten work permits and avoided deportation under an Obama administration policy. The ruling Monday by the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco marks a victory for immigrant rights advocates who argued the young immigrants were harmed by unequal treatment by the state. The appeals court agreed on that issue and said the advocates also showed a likelihood that the immigrants would be harmed by the state’s denial. The Obama administration took steps in June 2012 to shield thousands

I thought I´d grown numb to the media´s relentless efforts to manufacture good news for Barack Obama, but the June unemployment report really takes the cake. It was almost universally reported as phenomenal good news, with caveats brusquely related 10 paragraphs into print stories, if at all. Almost 300,000 jobs created! (Snip) In reality, this was a horrific unemployment report, and there is nothing ambiguous about why. The headlines should have read "Full-time employment crash: Half a million careers disappear in June." Quite simply, and to use round numbers, we got to the headline "300k jobs created" because the economy

ISIS Set to Destroy Biblical History

PARIS — More than two and a half millennia ago, the Assyrian King Senaccherib descended on his enemies “like the wolf on the fold,” as the Bible tells us—and as Lord Byron wrote in cantering cadences memorized by countless Victorian schoolchildren: “His cohorts were gleaming in purple and gold; And the sheen of their spears was like stars on the sea.” The Assyrian and Babylonian empires appear throughout the Old Testament as examples of ruthless grandeur and godless decadence. The Bible says Sennacherib’s army was destroyed by the Angel of the Lord. The Israelites were carried off to Babylon, where

The Holy Month of Ramadan is upon us. Most people know the month-long fast is a time Muslims are expected to demonstrate self-control, humility and submission to the will to Allah. What you might not know is that throughout Ramadan emergency services are overwhelmed by a spike in crime—a phenomenon known as “Ramadan rage,” which affects not just Muslim countries, but cities with high concentrations of believers, from Dearborn to Deptford. The effects of this gruelling annual fast have been widely studied. Researchers say those taking part risk migraines, dehydration, dizziness, tachycardia, nausea, circulatory collapse... and even gout, owing to

Inside Politics’ John King quoted Red State blogger Erick Erickson this morning about House Speaker John Boehner’s (R-OH) “political stunt” to sue President Barack Obama over his executive orders rather than begin impeachment proceedings, as the GOP base wants. Erickson, not known for his delicacy, basically accused Boehner of not having the balls to go full-impeachment. King apologized beforehand for the phrasing. “It’s not exactly morning television language,” he said, “but here we go.” Reckon not. Light fare on the internet, though, where “testicular fortitude” doesn’t even merit an NSFW. Watch the clip below, via CNN:

Michelle Obama is a popular first lady. On average, her favorable ratings have been higher than those of her predecessors, Laura Bush and Hillary Clinton. This may well reflect the fact that more so than other first ladies, Mrs. Obama has a stand-alone personal image. Unlike other recent first ladies, her popularity has not fallen or risen with her husband’s. How popular is Michelle? A steady two-thirds of the public has held a favorable view of Mrs. Obama, according to nationwide Gallup poll and Pew Research Center surveys, for most of her time as first lady. At 69 percent, her average

RALEIGH, N.C. — Most evenings, Sean Haugh is a pizza deliveryman. But every other week or so, the Libertarian Party’s Senate nominee in North Carolina opens a few craft beers on the counter of the bar in his campaign manager’s basement. He takes deep gulps from a pint glass bearing an image of Austrian-school economist Mur­ray Rothbard and expresses his Everyman frustrations with the current political system into a video camera. So far, Haugh’s campaign barely exists anywhere but on YouTube. But it is doing surprisingly well in a high-stakes Senate contest in which candidates and outside groups have already

So much has been happening in the Middle East that the huge diplomatic effort now under way to settle the confrontation over Iran’s nuclear ambitions risks falling off the radar. But a new round of talks in Vienna began last week and the clock is ticking on a deadline of July 20 for signing a comprehensive agreement that would resolve the issue once and for all. First, the good news: the US and Iran are talking with such regularity and on matters of such substance that their meetings have ceased to be noteworthy. [Snip] But here’s the bad news: the issues

Sarah Palin’s reality show Amazing America just got picked up for a second season by the Sportsman Channel and to mark the occasion, the former Republican governor and vice presidential candidate spoke to The Hollywood Reporter about the show’s first season and her future ambitions, including a possible spot on ABC’s The View. With Barbara Walters’ semi-retirement underway and the pending departures of Sherri Shepherd and Jenny McCarthy, The View is actively looking for new co-hosts. And as Palin revealed in Monday’s interview, she’s actively interested. All reporter Marisa Guthrie had to do was ask Palin if she was generally
