Speaker Boehner: President
Obama ´AWOL´ on Border Crisis
Breitbart´s Big Government, by Charlie Spiering    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 7/24/2014 1:18:03 PM     Post Reply
House Speaker John Boehner accused President Obama of flip-flopping on the border crisis and of being AWOL on the issue. Boehner explained that he continues to discuss the issue with House members, but that it wasn’t helping that the White House was sending uncertain messages on changing the 2008 law. “The administration started earlier this month by signaling some openness to changes in the 2008 law to accelerate the process of returning these children to their home countries,” Boehner said. “Now the president and his team have apparently flip-flopped.” President Obama has been gone for most of the week on a series of

Fusion’s Ramos: Deporting
Minors Not American or Christian

Fusion anchor Jorge Ramos bashed proposals to deport the minors illegally crossing the border and Texas Governor Rick Perry’s plan to send National Guard troops to the southern border. In an appearance on Tuesday’s The O’Reilly Factor on the Fox News Channel, Ramos said “I don´t think any government should be in the business of deporting endangered children. That´s not the American way, that´s not the Christian way.” He agreed that the US cannot take in every child who comes from a dangerous region of the world, but also argued that “These children are not a concern for the United

Ypres, Belgium - I first started coming to the Last Post ceremony in this tiny town on the French border in the mid-1990s. There were maybe 200 people who would gather each night beneath the Menin Gate, the Reginald Blomfield-designed monument reminiscent of the Arc de Triomphe, that was dedicated in July 1927 to forever remember the almost 55,000 British and Commonwealth soldiers who died near here between 1914 to 1918 but have no known grave. "A soldier of the Great War, known unto God" is how the gravestones read in a dozen cemeteries nearby still maintained by the Commonwealth War Graves

MCALLEN, Texas--Teenagers caught illegally crossing the U.S.-Mexico border are being transported via plane to states around the nation. One such state is Massachusetts, where a foster care agency is currently seeking foster parents to take the minors in. Lutheran Social Services, located in Worcester, Massachusetts, is "the only program in the New England states that assists refugee and migrating youth exclusively." The organization seeks out individuals, couples, and families willing to foster illegal immigrant minors from Latin America. A spokeswoman from Lutheran told Breitbart Texas that foster parents receive financial

Washington – After several weeks in which the influx of tens of thousands of undocumented children illegally crossing the border into the United States has dominated the headlines, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush wrote an op-ed about the issue, calling for a change in how the children are handled after they are arrested - and also urging his fellow Republicans not to use this as an "excuse" to abandon comprehensive immigration reform. His Wall Street Journal opinion piece that published Wednesday evening is similar to the statement he released to CNN last week and is just the second time he´s

Columbia River Cannabis in Douglas County was finally close to getting a marijuana-producer license after nine months. That is, until a 15,000-acre wildfire encroached on its farm July 10 and burned its 5-week-old medical-marijuana plants that were eventually to be used to start growing in the recreational market. The farm planned to make its first shipments to retailers by September. “We got singed real bad,” said Harold Jarboe, Columbia River Cannabis’ marketing director. Throughout Central Washington this month, marijuana producers have struggled to keep their budding businesses afloat. Amid record-setting wildfires they worked to grow and water crops, or deliver products at a

Anti-Obama street art appeared Monday night in Silicon Valley, where President Obama and Nancy Pelosi are scheduled to speak at yet another $32,000 per-couple fundraiser with California´s rich and powerful on Wednesday. In one series, titled SiliConMan, the president is pictured in a fedora, smoking a cigarette and winking. The text reads, "Leading from behind, fundraising in your face." Another series plays on the classic iPod advertisements from Silicon Valley juggernaut Apple Computers and features President Obama´s silhouette holding an NSA listening device under the mock brand name "iSnoop."Other posters see the president holding a map of Silicon Valley alongside

In Fond Memory of Don,
My Father-in-Law

Don, my father-in-law, recently passed away at 82. Back in the 70s upon learning that his number one (first) daughter Mary Ann was dating me, a black guy, Don said, “If I see that guy on my street, I will shoot him.” Well, Mary and I got married anyway. Neither her family or mine attended our humble wedding in a park. After a year or two, Don saw that his daughter was happy. Over time Mary´s parents grew to accept and respect me. One could not ask for more loving and supportive in-laws. I have black friends who assume white people freely

Fare Thee Well, My Pen

The pen is dead. It was murdered by the finger. I first realized this last week when my girlfriend asked to borrow a pen to sign the back of one of those paper check things. “Sure,” I replied, picking up my laptop bag to rummage inside. I pulled out a succession of rectangular-shaped gadgets, but there was no pen to be found. “Hmm, maybe we have one upstairs,” I said as we both began a detective-like search for anything that resembled a vessel for ink. We scoured the home office, kitchen drawers, bedrooms, even looking through our cars. But again, no pen. After backtracking

A woman who witnesses said appeared to be in labor was prevented from crossing an LA street Wednesday afternoon because the road was closed for President Barack Obama’s motorcade. The woman was seen sitting at a bus stop bench on the south side of 3rd Street just east of Robertson Boulevard and across from Cedars Sinai Medical Center. NBC4’s Robert Kovacik shot video on his cell phone of a woman sitting at a bus stop bench and posted it to his Instagram account with the caption, "Woman in labor on bench as motorcade passes; not allowed to cross street to

A San Francisco man arrested on suspicion of posing as a police officer and coercing Central American immigrants into committing sexual acts pleaded not guilty to kidnapping and assault charges, authorities said. Jeffrey Bugai, 35, was charged with two counts of kidnapping with the intent to commit a sex-related offense, said San Francisco Assistant Dist. Atty. Alex Bastian. The charges stem from encounters Bugai allegedly had with two men, Bastian said.

Abortions down 13 percent statewide
in wake of new regulations
Texas Tribune [Austin], by Gilad Edelman    Original Article

The number of abortions in Texas decreased by about 13 percent statewide and 21 percent in the Lower Rio Grande Valley following the passage of strict abortion regulations that went into effect last November, according to a report that academic researchers released Wednesday. The study, by the Texas Policy Evaluation Project at the University of Texas, which is analyzing the effects of reproductive health-related laws passed during the last two legislative sessions, found that as the number of clinics that provide abortions declined, so did the number of abortions performed statewide. Researchers said the decline was not as large as

Prospect of GOP Senate Ignites
Plan by Schumer To Sideline the Parties

Senator Schumer’s plan for open primaries, issued in the New York Times this week, reminds me of how I became a Republican. I’d been born and raised a Democrat and remained one until 2001, when I discovered that the candidate I wanted to vote for in the mayoral primary, Herman Badillo, was on the Republican ballot. I switched my party registration, and I’ve never looked back (at least not with regret). Mr. Schumer doesn’t want to go that route. Now that the Republicans may well win control of the Senate, he wants to change the primary system so that the

Sarah Palin endorsed underdog state Rep. Joe Carr (R) against Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) Wednesday, lauding Carr´s hard-line stance on immigration. "He’s stood up to those in his own party, fighting to enact some of the toughest illegal immigration legislation in the country and working to make Tennessee the 4th most business friendly state in the nation," Palin wrote in a statement on her Facebook page. Palin thanked Alexander for his many years of service. But she added, "Unfortunately, advocating and voting for amnesty, cash for clunkers, bailouts, raising the debt ceiling, and many controversial Obama administration nominees has marred

How White House Reporters
Can Reclaim Their Beat
National Journal, by Ron Fournier    Original Article
Posted By: Toledo- 7/24/2014 11:19:14 AM     Post Reply
Paul Farhi of The Washington Post writes today about a trend at the White House—and throughout journalism—that threatens the quality and credibility of news-gathering: Public-relations "minders" are injecting themselves into our interviews with politicians, CEOs, and other policymakers. Minder madness joins the surge of "background briefings" and the decline of access to decision-makers as evidence that the White House—and other big instititutions—are manipulating the press. It´s that, but it´s also something worse: It´s evidence that journalists are ceding control when they should be seizing it, accepting canned news rather than breaking it. Farhi writes, "Almost every officially sanctioned exchange between reporters and

Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk has announced his resignation, Fox News confirms. Yatsenyuk made the announcement from the dais of the parliament after two parties said they would pull out of the governing coalition. "I am announcing my resignation in connect with the collapse of the coalition," Yatsenyuk said. He said the parliament could no longer do its work and pass necessary laws.

Taken in the abstract the illegal alien influx appears singular. However, if you allow yourself to elevate above the current crisis you find a parallel issue which aligns with the Obama goals for illegal alien absorption. You just have to get high enough and look beyond the current crisis horizon to see where they connect. We have already outlined how HHS UAC (Unaccompanied Alien Minor) Grants are essentially a ruse similar to ACORN.(Snip)Around the same timeframe the DACA Executive Order was implemented there was another “fundamental change” program initiated. The second program is from the Department of Housing and Urban

The National Science Foundation has committed $10 million to build robots that will act as “personal trainers” for children, in an effort to influence their behavior and eating habits. The government has spent $2.15 million so far for the five-year project, which is being led by Yale University. The project, “Robots Helping Kids,” will ultimately “deploy” robots into homes and schools to teach English as a second language, and encourage kids to exercise. The project will develop a “new breed of sophisticated ‘socially assistive’ robots,” designed to help children “learn to read, appreciate physical fitness, overcome cognitive disabilities, and perform

Democratic senator cites PTSD

A Montana senator who is running for re-election suggested Wednesday that medication he took for post-traumatic stress disorder after service in Iraq may have been responsible for apparently plagiarized passages in his thesis. Montana Sen. John Walsh´s thesis, which was written to earn a master´s degree from the U.S. Army War College, contains unattributed passages taken word-for-word from previously published papers. The Democrat also said he was dealing with the stress of a fellow veteran´s recent suicide. Walsh said he made an unintentional mistake and did not intend to plagiarize. "I don´t want to blame my mistake on PTSD, but I do want to

Braley under fire for missing

Over a two-year period, Democratic U.S. Rep. Bruce Braley missed 75 percent of meetings for a committee that provides oversight over the Veterans Administration, including one meeting on a day he attended three fundraisers for his 2012 campaign. A few months later, news reports exposed systemic problems in patient care that have since resulted in the resignation head of the federal department of veterans affairs. Republicans argue that Braley, who missed 15 of the 20 Veterans´ Affairs Committee meetings in 2011 and 2012, has shown a lack of commitment to conditions within the health care system for veterans. Democrats who back Braley, a

On April 8, 2013, I received an envelope in the mail from a nonexistent return address in Toledo, Ohio. Inside was a blank thank-you note and an Ohio state driver’s license. The ID belonged to a 28-year-old man called Aaron Brown—6 feet tall and 160 pounds with a round face, scruffy brown hair, a thin beard, and green eyes. His most defining feature, however, was that he didn’t exist. I know that because I created him. As an artist, I’ve long been interested in identity and the ways it is represented. My first serious body of work, Springfield, used the concept of

President Obama hit the Bay Area for a fast cash-and-grab fundraising drive Wednesday, but there were signs that even in one of the nation´s most reliable Democratic ATMs, donor fatigue is setting in. There was no listed price for tickets for Obama´s morning appearance at a roundtable in San Francisco for the House Majority PAC - the type of intimate gathering for which admission is usually $32,400 per person, the legal maximum. Some donors said tickets had been offered for a deep discount. And in Los Altos Hills, the heart of Silicon Valley big money, the president´s appearance at the

A French Ministry of Defense official tells Fox News that the Air Algerie jet carrying 116 people that vanished from radar shortly after takeoff late Wednesday night has crashed in Mali, and that two French fighter jets have located the wreckage. Air navigation services lost track of the Swiftair MD-83 roughly 50 minutes after takeoff from Ougadougou, the capital of Burkina Faso, at 9:55 p.m. ET Wednesday, the official Algerian news agency said. That means that Flight 5017 had been missing for hours before the news was made public. The wreckage was found near the Malian city of Gao, the official told

SYDNEY, Australia — Prime Minister Tony Abbott of Australia said Thursday that his country, which lost dozens of citizens when Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 was brought down last week, has sent 50 police officers to Europe in hopes that they would be allowed to help secure the crash site in eastern Ukraine. “It is vital that the search and the investigation not be contaminated by people who have a vested interest in the outcome,” Mr. Abbott said at a news conference in Canberra, the Australian capital.
