Judicial Watch, AEF Challenge
Obama Admin For States´ Right
To Block Noncitizen Voters
Breitbart´s Big Government, by Tom Fitton    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 7/14/2014 10:31:14 PM     Post Reply
One of the many negative downstream consequences of illegal aliens flooding across the border is the increased possibility of voter fraud. Obama and his leftist allies are committed to thwarting any effort by states to protect the integrity of the voting process that would prevent illegal aliens and other ineligible individuals from voting. Judicial Watch has launched a nationwide effort to support election integrity. That effort continued this week, as we once again joined forces with the Allied Educational Foundation (AEF) to file an amicus curiae brief with the United States Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit in support of

Rubio: Senate immigration bill
won’t stop border surge
Washington Times, by S.A. Miller & Seth McLaughlin    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 7/14/2014 10:30:56 PM     Post Reply
Sen. Marco Rubio says the immigration bill he helped push through the Senate would not have stopped the surge of children crossing the southwestern border illegally, breaking with his “Gang of Eight” co-authors who are urging the bill’s passage. “I don’t think the immigration bill that was proposed in the Senate would have prevented that from happening,” the Florida Republican told The Washington Times. “What I think would have prevented that from happening is sufficient border security on the ground that would have discouraged people from making that journey in the first place.”

Another swing and a miss
for Obama’s foreign policy
Washington Post, by Dana Milbank    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 7/14/2014 10:30:51 PM     Post Reply
President Obama has described his foreign-policy doctrine as an attempt to hit singles, doubles and the occasional home run. But at this stage of the game, it looks as though he has popped out, grounded into a double play and been hit by a pitch. His attorney general, Eric Holder, said Sunday that the threat of undetectable explosives from Syria is “more frightening than anything” he has experienced in office. And the Wall Street Journal ran a front-page article Monday reporting that “the breadth of global instability now unfolding hasn’t been seen since the late 1970s” and that “U.S. global

Iron Dome, Israel’s antimissile system,
changes calculus of fight with Hamas
Washington Post, by Griff Witte and Ruth Eglash    Original Article

ASHKELON, Israel — The roar of sirens echoed across this sun-kissed city Monday afternoon, and in a heartbeat the woman in the pink bikini was out of the pool, shepherding her three young kids to the nearest shelter. Up above, the vapor trail of a rocket fired from Gaza, just 10 miles down the coast, ripped the clear blue sky. And then, a boom: The rocket had been shot down. The kids jumped back in the seaside pool, and their mother returned to her tanning. Through it all, the lifeguard had barely stirred. Such is the dichotomous reality this week

Poll: Obama enjoys greater

Nearly six in 10 people around the world express confidence in President Obama even as his approval rating in the United States is near an all-time low, according to a poll released Monday. A Pew survey of nearly 50,000 people from 44 countries found 56 percent worldwide have confidence in Obama to do the right thing regarding world affairs. Though that number has held steady from last year, it was 16 points higher when he first took office in 2009. While strong overall, in Germany and Brazil confidence in Obama has plummeted 17 points after reports last year that the

WASHINGTON — Two Texas lawmakers say they plan to introduce a bipartisan bill on Tuesday intended to combat the humanitarian crisis at the nation’s southern border and make it easier to send migrant children from Central America back to their home countries. The legislation is expected to encounter resistance from some congressional Democrats. It comes as the White House has signaled a willingness to work with Republicans to win passage of President Obama’s request for $3.7 billion in emergency funds(Snip) The legislation by the two Texas lawmakers — Senator John Cornyn, the chamber’s No. 2 Republican, and Representative Henry Cuellar,

The Conservatives Who Deserve Blame
for the Border Breakdown
American Thinker, by John T. Bennett    Original Article
Posted By: periwinkel- 7/14/2014 10:24:22 PM     Post Reply
The conservative commentators who advocated a “path to citizenship” after the 2012 election bear partial blame for the current wave of illegal immigrants from Central America. Many of those who advocated for amnesty following the 2012 election are now complaining that people indeed came expecting that amnesty. But there is also an unbelievably bad policy at the root of the problem. (snip)It is not ironic at all that that a law intended “to combat human trafficking” has facilitated human smuggling. It is not ironic because this is precisely the outcome we should expect from immigration policy designed by multicultural elites.

California schools focus on foster care youth
Associated Press, by Lisa Leff    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 7/14/2014 10:23:11 PM     Post Reply
California is embarking on a first-of-its-kind attempt to improve the academic lives of foster youth by giving schools more money to meet their special learning and emotional needs and holding educators and administrators accountable. But first, officials have to figure out how many school-age foster children they have and where they are enrolled in a state that´s home to nearly one-fifth of the nation´s foster children. Until now, no state has attempted to identify every foster child in its public schools or to systematically track their progress, much less funnel funds toward those students or require school districts to show they are spending

Reports Indicate Israel

After an unprecedented day of attacks from 4 fronts, Sinai, Lebanon, Syria and Gaza, reports indicate that the Israeli government has agreed to an Egyptian-brokered ceasefire. The Jewish Week reports: Israeli media is now reporting that Israel has agreed to an Egyptian draft ceasefire proposal. Hamas has not yet replied, but there are hints it may agree. According to the proposal: There were would be de-escalation of the fighting beginning at 9 a.m. Israel time that would last for 12 hours. That would be followed by a ceasefire for 48 hours. Then delegations from Israel and Hamas would travel to

Canadian Prime Minister
Condemns Obama, West

In a stunning rebuke of President Obama’s tepid calls for Israel to show "restraint" in response to daily rocket fire on Israeli civilian targets by Hamas terror redoubts in Gaza, Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper, long considered Israel’s best friend and strongest defender, all but condemned President Obama by name for what he regards as Washington’s irresolute support for Israel during its time of grave crisis. In perhaps his most strongly worded statement to date, Prime Minister Harper proclaimed that self defense is "not merely an Israeli right" to be exercised only in the abstract, but an "Israeli obligation" that

Lois Lerner’s Former FEC Colleague

The Federal Election Commission recycled the computer hard drive of April Sands — a former co-worker of Lois Lerner’s — hindering an investigation into Sands’ partisan political activities, according to the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. Sands resigned from the Federal Election Commission in April after she admitted to violating the Hatch Act, which bars executive branch employees from engaging in partisan political activities on federal time and at federal facilities. The twist is that Sands also worked under Lois Lerner when the ex-IRS agent — who is currently embroiled in a scandal over the targeting of conservative

Krauthammer vs. Kirsten Powers
on Border Crisis: "There Is No
Answer But To Send Them Back"
Real Clear Politics, by Ian Schwartz    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 7/14/2014 10:14:12 PM     Post Reply
CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER: I think there are two separate issues with two separate answers. The one issue is controlling the border and not creating a magnet for the continuation of this catastrophe. The second is treating the kids who are here humanely, the best way that we can. For the first, there is no other answer than to send them back, to put them on buses, to have them come back to Central America, at which point it will be understood that you´re putting all your kids in danger for no reason.

Murrieta: City of Hate?
Or Home of the New Revolution?

The illegal immigration protests in Murrieta, for the most part, have come to an end. The federal government backed down, deciding not to send bus loads of diseased migrants into our community anymore. Now, they are shipping them to local churches, and border patrol facilities in other States. We have decided to protest that, too, when we can, beginning with the 46 illegal aliens who entered the USA via Texas arriving at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church in Fontana, Calfornia, on July 10, 2014. A number of rallies challenging the federal government’s decision to keep the border wide open are planned at that

Harry Reid: Even Judge Judy Would

Senator Harry Reid, clearly just straight-up trolling now, went after Republicans on the Senate floor over their planned lawsuit against President Obama over unilateral action on Obamacare. But Reid also took a strange shot at them by saying that the lawsuit is so bad, even Judge Judy would strike it down. Burn? Reid dismissed the GOP’s “foolish and meritless lawsuit” as a complete and total sham and “an effort to appease the tea party radicals in the House of Representatives.” He charged all Republicans want is a “show trial and so, “if that’s really what they really want, they should

A New Jersey man who murdered a police officer in cold blood over the weekend astonishingly is being hailed as a hero by members of the community who have erected a make-shift shrine - complete with candles and empty liquor bottles - in his honor. Lawrence Campbell was fatally shot by police after he gunned down 23-year-old rookie Jersey City police Officer Melvin Santiago outside of a Walgreen´s pharmacy early Sunday morning. (Snip) In addition to the empty liquor bottles, the memorial for 27-year-old ex-con Campbell includes t-shirts with messages from friends and members of the community

Obama´s Request: 4x as Much to
House Illegals as to Secure Border

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.

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.

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
