Obama´s Request: 4x as Much to
House Illegals as to Secure Border
Cybercast News Service, by Brittany M. Hughes    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 7/14/2014 10:07:32 PM     Post Reply
Of the $3.7 billion in emergency funds President Obama requested of Congress last week to deal with the mounting immigration crisis at the southern U.S. border, $1.8 billion is earmarked for housing and medical services for illegal aliens. That amount is more than four times the $433 million carved out for U.S. Border Patrol to help strengthen border security. According to a breakdown by the White House, $1.8 billion in taxpayer dollars – more than half the total emergency funding – will go directly to the Department of Health and Human Services to improve the detention conditions for unaccompanied minors

Poll: Two-thirds of Republicans
support impeaching Obama — but
only one-third of public overall
Hot Air, by Allahpundit    Original Article

Here’s what I predicted on Friday: I haven’t seen any polls on impeachment lately, but I’d guess that impeachment supporters would start with something like 55-60 percent of the public opposed (all Democrats and a majority of indies) and 40 percent or so in favor (most Republicans). Via Gary Jackson, how’d I do? In other words, 68 percent think Obama shouldn’t be impeached. Of that number, 56 percent — a clear majority — think he hasn’t done anything to deserve impeachment and another 12 percent think he has but that we should decline to do it anyway, presumably for the good of

Obama Insider Raises Concern About
His Isolation Behind Jarrett and
Michelle; Expect the Press to Ignore

In the early 1970s, the press obsessed about President Nixon´s alleged "isolation," especially as the Watergate scandal, which in an objective lookback has to be seen as relative child´s play compared to what we´re seeing now, unfolded. Proof that Nixon´s "isolation" had been a constant media theme in previous months is found in an NBC Nightly News report on May 10, 1973, when a White House staff reorganization was characterized by reporter Richard Valeriani as "Nixon moving to end President(´s) isolation." On Fox News´s "The Five" on Friday, Democrat Bob Beckel relayed what he said was an anonymous comment by a

Graffiti on proposed shelter for
immigrant children in Maryland:
‘No illeagles here.’
Washington Post, by Jenna Johnson    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 7/14/2014 7:40:19 PM     Post Reply
Westminster, MD - As news spread this weekend that undocumented immigrant children might soon live in a former military facility in this town, graffiti appeared on the one-story brick building: “No illeagles here. No undocumented Democrats.” Aside from the misspelling — which prompted some snickering about sick birds of prey as a photo circulated on Facebook on Sunday — the scrawled message was a manifestation of the bitter national debate over how the government should treat these undocumented children. Tens of thousands of unaccompanied Central American children have arrived on the southwest border

Don Lemon: Why Does the Right
Make Al Sharpton into ‘Boogeyman’?

CNN anchor Don Lemon came to the defense (sort of) of cable news rival Al Sharpton today, agreeing with one of his guests that Sharpton might not be right all the time, but the right tends to exaggerate when it comes to Sharpton and makes him into some kind of “boogeyman.” Wall Street Journal columnist Jason Riley argued that Eric Holder and President Obama don’t want a serious conversation about race, because a few months ago they attended an event for Sharpton’s group. He asked, “Does Al Sharpton strike you as the type of person you turn to

Jon Karl Lists Everything Going
Wrong With Obama Foreign Policy

ABC News’ Jon Karl rattled off an extensive list of the White House’s foreign policy dilemmas during a press briefing with Press Secretary Josh Earnest, and asked, “Do you think the president’s foreign policy bears any responsibility for any of this or there’s anything that he can do about any of this?” Karl began by quoting Attorney General Eric Holder, who told ABC’s This Week the flow of Westerners into Syria is “more frightening than anything I think I’ve seen as attorney general.” Karl then cited foreign policy experts who told the Wall Street Journal, “The breadth of global instability now unfolding

Third of Americans and a majority of

A third of Americans think Congress should impeach President Barack Obama, polls released today show. Left-leaning publication the Huffington Post along with polling partner YouGov and right-leaning polling company Rasmussen Reports came up with roughly the same percent of Americans who think Congress should bring formal charges against the president in separate polls that were released this morning. The poll-takers also found that 68 and 58 percent of Republicans, respectively, think the president should be impeached. Congressional leadership has no intention of drawing up articles of impeachment for Obama, but a lawsuit the House plans to bring against the president for

  


  

Outbreak on the Border

Health authorities at a Navy base in Southern California took steps last weekend to curtail an outbreak of pneumonia and swine flu among illegal immigrant children housed at the facility, according to U.S. officials. The outbreak of disease among several of the nearly 600 immigrant children at the Naval Base Ventura County, located north of Los Angeles, initially was thought to be caused by deadly bacterial streptococcal meningitis, according to one official close to the issue. However, a spokesman for the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) said he was not aware of any cases of meningitis at the base. The pneumonia

At Dinner Tables, Restless
President Finds Intellectual Escape

WASHINGTON — President Obama had just disembarked from Air Force One and was still on the tarmac in Rome when he turned to his host, John R. Phillips, the American ambassador to Italy, with an unexpected request: How about a dinner party tomorrow night? Over the next 24 hours, the startled Mr. Phillips and his wife, the former Obama aide Linda Douglass, scrambled to gather some of Italy’s intellettuali. (Snip) In a summer when the president is traveling across the country meeting with “ordinary Americans” under highly choreographed conditions, the Rome dinner shows another side of Mr. Obama.

Federal judge takes stance

The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office isn’t the only federal authority that has taken a stance against the name of the Washington Redskins. A federal judge in Maryland issued a ruling last week that purposely did not contain the team’s name, which has been described as an offensive slur against Native Americans. U.S. District Judge Peter J. Messitte, who is presiding over the “bounty” case former New York Giants linebacker Barrett Green launched against the Redskins, issued a 21-page ruling with this footnote on the first page: “Pro Football’s team is popularly known as the Washington ‘Redskins,’ but the Court

Gov. Terry Branstad said Monday that he does not want Iowa to host any of the thousands of children from Central America who have crossed the U.S.-Mexico border alone. During a news conference, Branstad said he was not aware of any of the children currently living in Iowa and that state has not been contacted by the federal government about housing any immigrant children. He said the government’s focus should be on securing the borders. “The first thing we need to do is secure the border. I do have empathy for these kids,” Branstad said. “But I also don’t want

Group At Center Of IRS Scandal
Has Never Been Interviewed
By FBI Investigators
Independent Journal Review, by Larry O´Connor    Original Article

No one from True The Vote, the highest profile organization targeted by the IRS in the scandal involving improper scrutiny of conservative-leaning non-profits, has been interviewed by the FBI or investigators from the Department of Justice, according to the group’s President, Catherine Engelbrecht. This stunning revelation comes just days after Attorney General Eric Holder rebuffed the suggestion that an independent investigation is needed into the growing scandal. Holder told ABC News this weekend that a special investigation was unnecessary because “career people” and FBI agents were “doing a good, professional job” investigating the matter.

The Cheney Bunch - minus one

Sing it with us: “Here’s the story of a man named Cheney …” Dick, Lynne and Liz Cheney had a message they wanted to send with their appearance at POLITICO’s Playbook lunch on Monday: We’re a family, we’re happy together, we joke together, and we’re beating the drum for an aggressive foreign policy together. It’s almost as if the Cheneys were the Brady Bunch — if the Brady Bunch had started a hawkish think tank and were warning the country about the failures of President Barack Obama’s leadership around the world.) There’s just one problem: this Brady Bunch wasn’t all

GOP’s House Judiciary Chairman
Clueless on Impeachment

The Beltway fixture that Republicans have placed in charge of the House judiciary committee—i.e., the committee that, by its own description, functions as “the lawyer for the House of Representatives,” and claims an “infrequent but important role in impeachment proceedings”—is ignorant when it comes to the Constitution’s impeachment standard. Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R., Va.) took to one of the Sunday shows to demonstrate his cluelessness. After explaining that “the Constitution is very clear as to what constitutes grounds for impeachment of the president of the United States,” he proceeded to mangle that very clear standard, opining that President Obama “has not

MSNBC reporter Chris Jansing asked White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest Monday if Democratic Colorado governor John Hickenlooper let President Obama win one of the two pool games during his trip to Denver last week. Hickenlooper said Sunday at the National Governors Association meeting that President Obama beat him at not just one game, but two games of pool. “There’s been some back and forth about that and the $20 that was exchanged,” Jansing said. Earnest laughed, and said he would “be surprised if Governor Hickenlooper would say that he threw a pool game to the President of the United States.” Follow Kaitlan on

House GOP group to recommend

Fresh off a trip to Guatemala and Honduras, a House GOP working group on immigration will recommend Tuesday that the conference change a 2008 trafficking law to stop the thousands of immigrant children flooding across the border. Granger will offer the presentation at a pivotal conference meeting expected to signal the party´s direction on the issue. The 2008 law has emerged as the biggest sticking point between Republicans and Democrats battling over President Obama’s $3.7 billion request for supplemental border funding. Under the statute, unaccompanied immigrant children from Mexico or Canada must be screened within 48 hours

White House: Immigrant children

The White House said Monday it was “likely” that immigrant children facing mortal danger in their home countries would be allowed to stay in the United States. The comments come amid a growing debate over a 2008 law that allows many of the children flooding across the southern border an automatic asylum hearing. “These children will — and other immigrants who are attempting to enter the country without documentation — will go through the immigration process and that means their claims of asylum will be considered by an immigration judge and by asylum officials,” White House press secretary Josh Earnest

If U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry ever needs a new job, he could find himself at home in Afghanistan. After a recent diplomatic visit to the country, Kerry was hailed as a hero and a great politician, so much so, that some Afghans wished he would run for president. “John Kerry is the greatest American and the best friend of Afghanistan. He helped prevent this country from going to civil war two times,” 29-year-old Kabul shopkeeper Maqsood Parwani told NBC news. “I wish if we could elect him as our president, but we cannot so hope the American people elect him

  



Leaked Data Shows 10-Fold Increase
In Obama’s Asylum Approvals
Daily Caller, by Neil Munro    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 7/14/2014 5:10:44 PM     Post Reply
The number of foreigners who successfully filed asylum claims in the United States almost tripled from 2012 to 2013, up to 30,393. That’s 10 times the number from 2008, when President Barack Obama was elected, and it is evidence his immigration officials are agreeing that many people in the growing wave of Central American migrants face a “credible fear” of harm if they are returned. Official approval allows the migrants to file for asylum in immigration court, where judges will approve or reject the asylum request. If you came illegally to the U.S. seeking asylum in 2013, you had better than a

How Palin’s Call for Impeachment
Is at Odds With Conservative Politics
Wall Street Journal, by Peter Wehner    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 7/14/2014 5:07:46 PM     Post Reply
Former Alaska governor Sarah Palin first made her case for the impeachment of President Barack Obama here. She next explained her argument at FoxNews.com. Last week I explained in a Think Tank post why I thought Ms. Palin’s idea is a very bad one. I want to return to Ms. Palin’s recommendation in order to make a broader point about conservatism. Ms. Palin is not only championing the impeachment of President Obama; she also was a cheerleader for the tactic that led to the government shutdown last October. That turned out to be a disaster for the GOP and conservatism, and it achieved nothing useful.

Democrats’ Woes Make Al

It’s not you Al, it’s your party. Stuart Rothenberg, editor and publisher of the nonpartisan Rothenberg Political Report, changed his rating on Sen. Al Franken’s race for re-election in Minnesota to reflect a slightly more competitive environment for the Democrat. But Mr. Rothenberg, an experienced handicapper, was quick to note that his ratings change – from “safe Democrat” to “Democrat favored” – has everything to do with headwinds confronting the party and very little to do with Mr. Franken’s Republican opponent, businessman Mike McFadden.

Why Hasn’t Bowe Bergdahl Seen or

Earlier today came news that Bowe Bergdahl, who was released by the Taliban after five years in captivity, will be returning to active duty with the U.S. Army this week. Now, according to a report from the Wall Street Journal, we learn that Bergdahl has refused to see or speak to his parents since his release six weeks ago. An army official reportedly told the Journal that Bergdahl has refused to see his parents in person or even speak to them on the phone, suggesting “a deeper estrangement between the soldier and his parents than the military understood when he was
