Scalise: No Funding Cutoff Even If
Obama Defers More Deportations
Cybercast News Service, by Susan Jones    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 7/28/2014 4:01:51 PM     Post Reply
What will congressional Republicans do if President Obama takes executive action to defer deportation for millions more illegal aliens? "Fox News Sunday" host Chris Wallace asked Rep. Steve Scalise (R-La.) that question on Sunday. "[W]ill you do nothing, will you...cut off funding for the administration, will you consider impeaching the president?" Scalise said Republicans intend to be a "check and a balance against this administration," but he also indicated that Republicans will not use their power of the purse to stop the president: "We´re going to keep the government running at current levels," Scalise said, referring to a continuing resolution

Report: At Least 160 Children
Died Digging Hamas´ Tunnels
PowerLine, by Paul Mirengoff    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 7/28/2014 3:55:36 PM     Post Reply
Because of their size and agility, children make good tunnel-diggers. The English knew this when they were digging coal mines during the Victorian era; Hamas knows it now. Thus, the Journal of Palestine Studies (edited by President Obama’s pro-Palestinian friend Rashid Khalidi) reported in 2012 that Hamas uses children to help dig tunnels into Israel. The finding appears in a paper called Gaza’s Tunnel Phenomenon: The Unintended Dynamics of Israel’s Siege. The author of the paper, Nicolas Pelham accompanied a police patrol in Gaza during December 2011. He reported that “nothing was done to impede the use of children in

A sex offender who had been on the run for two years after skipping bail for molesting two boys under the age of seven in California has been shot and killed in New York in a dramatic shoot-out with federal marshals and police. Charles Mozdir, 32, was killed in the exchange and his weapon had been recovered. His case had been featured on CNN’s The Hunt last week, which could well have led to him being identified. The shooting happened just after 1 p.m. in the West Village not far from New York University when a fugitive apprehension task force

The IRS Scandal and the
Politicization of Justice
Breitbart´s Big Government, by Hans von Spakovsky & John Fund    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 7/28/2014 3:30:30 PM     Post Reply
If you want a good illustration of how Attorney General Eric Holder has politicized the Justice Department and its prosecutorial decision-making, all you have to do is look at what Justice has not done in just one part of the IRS scandal. Despite its agreement to settle a lawsuit filed by the National Organization for Marriage against the IRS for the illegal disclosure of confidential tax information, it has not prosecuted any of the individuals or organizations who illegally disclosed and published that information. The IRS, which was represented by Justice Department lawyers in the civil case, agreed to pay NOM

Border Crisis Poll: 64% of
Hispanics Back Deportations

If you are curious as to why the mainstream media so quickly lost interest in the still-ongoing story of our Southern border crisis, it has everything to do with public opinion and little to do with competing stories in the Ukraine and Gaza. When this story first broke at Breitbart Texas, the media jumped all over it. At first, it was obvious the media planned to exploit the story of 50-plus thousand unaccompanied Central American children illegally crossing our border as a way to pressure the GOP into caving on amnesty. A new poll from Economist/YouGov shows how badly that plan

Brown Heads to Mexico to Explain
Why 50% More Unemployment is Better
Breitbart California, by Chriss W. Street    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 7/28/2014 3:18:42 PM     Post Reply
Governor Jerry Brown, now the latest potential presidential candidate for 2016, is touting his trip to Mexico this week as an opportunity to demonstrate foreign policy expertise as a cheerleader in the quest to combat climate change. Mexico President Enrique Peña Nieto will undoubtedly be a very gracious and understanding host, given that the California unemployment rate has consistently been at least 50% higher than Mexican unemployment. Brown’s extremist environmental agenda may be good for his political future, but it seems to have seriously undermined the California job market.

I was instrumental in establishing the “Israeli National Skin Bank”, which is the largest in the world. (Snip) This skin bank is hosted at the Hadassah Ein Kerem University hospital in Jerusalem where I was the Chairman of plastic surgery. This is how I was asked to supply skin for an Arab woman from Gaza, who was hospitalized in Soroka Hospital in Beersheva, after her family burned her. Usually, such atrocities happen among Arab families when the women are suspected of having an affair.

What ´small country´ did

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Sunday that she knows how difficult it is "to be the leader of a relatively small country." Come again? I know I’m relatively young, but I think I would have remembered President or Prime Minister or Queen Hillary. Clinton made the comments on CNN´s "Fareed Zakaria GPS" while discussing the conflict between Israel and Hamas and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin "Bibi" Netanyahu. “I’ve known Bibi a long time and I have a very good relationship with him, in part because we can yell at each other – and we do,” Clinton said. “And

House and Senate negotiators have unveiled a $17 billion plan to overhaul the way the nation’s veterans obtain medical care, including a $10 billion provision to privatize services to help shorten long wait times. “This bill makes certain we address the immediate crisis of veterans being forced onto long wait lines for health care,” said Senate Veterans´ Affairs Committee Chairman Bernie Sanders, I-Vt. The proposal, co-authored by House Veterans´ Affairs Committee Chairman Jeff Miller, R-Fla., includes a major reform provision aimed at allowing the Department of Veterans Affairs secretary to immediately fire senior employees who currently enjoy an appeals period that

Conservative columnist George Will surprised “Fox New Sunday’s” Chris Wallace when he claimed the United States should “welcome” the flood of illegal immigrant children along our southern border — adding that concerns about America’s ability to absorb Central America’s problems are “preposterous.” Will spoke on a panel along with Fox News contributors Kirsten Powers, Juan Williams and Brit Hume about the ongoing border crisis. Powers had just finished slamming the Republican Party for not wanting to work on any kind of comprehensive immigration issue beyond deporting the tens of thousands of Central American children coming into the country illegally.

At around two-thirty in the afternoon on May 8, 1993, Marshall Morgan left his mother’s house, on the South Side of Chicago, and drove off in her light-blue Chevrolet Cavalier. Morgan was borrowing the car and, in return, had agreed to get it washed. It was a warm day, and he wore denim shorts, a black-and-white pin-striped shirt, and black sneakers. After he got the car cleaned, he planned to return home and spruce himself up: he had a date with his girlfriend that night. Morgan was a twenty-year-old sophomore at the Illinois Institute of Technology, where he played point guard

Illegal immigrant demonstrators were protesting outside the White House on Monday – but don’t expect America’s immigration officers to intervene. An Immigration and Customs Enforcement official indicated that even if the protesters end up getting arrested by D.C. police, they’d have to be serious criminals for ICE to get involved. “Unless the individuals meet ICE’s enforcement priorities, it’s unlikely that the agency would get involved in the case,” the official told FoxNews.com. Under a policy that’s been in effect for several years, ICE focuses deportation mostly on serious criminals and – in some cases -- those caught in the

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton told Fusion TV´s Jorge Ramos that part of the reason Hamas hides rockets in schools and civilian areas is "Gaza is small." "I´m not a military planner but Hamas puts it´s missiles, it´s rockets in civilian areas, part of it is Gaza is pretty small and its densely populated," she said as neglecting the question of whether or not Hamas should have rockets in area to begin with.

President Obama on Monday announced a long-waited nominee for the job of "religious freedom" ambassador, after the post sat vacant for nine months. Rabbi David Nathan Saperstein, director of the Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism, was chosen for the position of ambassador at large for international religious freedom, which is subject to Senate confirmation.

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu addressed Israeli citizens on live television Monday evening after Hamas fired a mortar shell that killed four people in southern Israel. "We knew that we would have difficult days,” he said. “This is a hard and painful day.” "Patience and determination are required in order to fight a terror organization that seeks to destroy us,” the prime minister added. “We will not complete the operation without neutralizing the tunnels whose only purpose is to annihilate our children and our civilians. "The action against the tunnels is the first step in demilitarizing Gaza,” Netanyahu declared.

BOONE, N.C. — A second American aid worker has tested positive for the Ebola virus at the same hospital in Liberia where an American doctor became infected while helping to combat an outbreak of the deadly disease, a relief group official said Sunday. Ken Isaacs, a vice president of Samaritan´s Purse, told The Associated Press that Dr. Kent Brantly — the 33-year-old medical director for the group´s Ebola care center on the outskirts of the Liberian capital of Monrovia — was stable and in very serious condition.

A U.S. appeals court struck down Virginia´s constitutional ban on same-sex marriage on Monday, the second appeals court to come out in favor of gay marriage. A three-judge panel of the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Richmond, Virginia, ruled 2-1 to affirm a February ruling by a federal judge who struck down the state ban as unconstitutional. "Denying same-sex couples this choice prohibits them from participating fully in our society, which is precisely the type of segregation that the (U.S. Constitution´s) Fourteenth Amendment cannot countenance," the decision said. The 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals struck down same-sex

Pro-Palestinian activists in the San Francisco Bay Area are planning to block the Port of Oakland this Saturday to prevent two commercial shipping tankers partially owned by the Israel Corporation from docking and unloading. Protesters plan to block two Zim Integrated Shipping Ltd. commercial vessels, because 32 percent of the company is owned by Israel Corporation — Israel’s largest holding company, the San Jose Mercury News reported. Organizers of the event include the Bay Area Labor Committee for Peace and Justice, which describes itself as an anti-war group that “works actively to promote a just solution to the

Left-wing anti-Semitism is
anything but a new phenomenon

“How, as a socialist, can you not be an anti-Semite?” Adolf Hitler asked his party members in 1920. No one thought it an odd question. Anti-Semitism was at that time widely understood to be part of the wider revolutionary movement against markets, property and capital. The man who coined the term “socialism,” the nineteenth-century French revolutionary, Pierre Leroux, had told his comrades: “When we speak of the Jews, we mean the Jewish spirit--the spirit of profit, of lucre, of gain, of speculation; in a word, the banker’s spirit.” The man who popularised the term “anti-Semitism” had taken a similar line.

A federal judge has declared that one of the District’s principal gun control laws is unconstitutional and ordered that its enforcement be halted. The ruling by Judge Frederick J. Scullin Jr., made public Saturday, orders the city to end its prohibition against carrying a pistol in public. It was not clear what immediate effect the order would have. The order was addressed to the District of Columbia and Police Chief Cathy Lanier, as well as their employees and officers and others “who receive actual notice” of the ruling. But it could not be determined Sunday who had received notice. Also unclear was whether

President Barack Obama is practically weepy at the thought of his daughter Malia going off to college, a milestone many months away that is already on his mind. Malia barely reached up to her father´s shoulders when they moved to the White House nearly six years ago with her mother, little sister and grandmother. At 16, she stands nearly as tall as her 6-foot-1 dad and is visiting college campuses in preparation for that bittersweet day in the fall of 2016 when she trades her White House bedroom for a dorm. She has been seen touring the University of California
