Proposed West Texas shelter
would be largest in US
Associated Press, by Staff    Original Article

CLINT, Texas — Authorities are considering a bid to build a shelter in West Texas that would be the largest in the U.S. to hold unaccompanied children who enter the country illegally. A number of sites in Texas and elsewhere are being considered as detention facilities for many of the more than 57,000 unaccompanied children who have entered the U.S. since October. But with 3,500 beds, the proposed Abraham Lincoln Transitional Lodge southeast of El Paso would be far larger than other centers. A temporary processing facility in McAllen holds about 1,000 children. The lodge´s marketing director, Charles McGuire, tells

John Fund: An Obama Executive Amnesty
Would Be ‘Ritual Political Suicide’
Breitbart´s Big Government, by Robert Wilde    Original Article

John Fund, national affairs correspondent for National Review Online, told Breitbart News Executive Chairman Stephen K. Bannon that if President Obama attempts via executive order to grant amnesty to eight million illegal aliens “it would be the equivalent of ritual political suicide and most political parties don’t do that.” (Snip) Fund contends that the administration wants “conservatives to go crazy talking about impeachment and amnesty, driving them up the wall with selective leaks, just like they did with the birther issue. This is whack-a-mole.”

President Obama’s competence
problem is worse than it looks
Washington Post, by Chris Cillizza    Original Article

You can understand President Obama´s current political problems -- and how those problems could make things very tough for his party in this fall´s midterm election -- in a single word. And that word is "competence". Obama was elected in 2008 on a stated promise that he would restore competence to government. He pitched himself as the antidote to "Heck of a job, Brownie" and the Bush years, the person who would always put the most qualified candidate in every job in his Administration. That the basic functioning of government would never be in question. Almost six years on from

Michelle Nunn: Favorable Media Bias
Part of Democrat Campaign Strategy
Breitbart Big Journalism, by John Nolte    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 7/28/2014 6:26:54 PM     Post Reply
Over at National Review, Eliana Johnson got hold of a confidential campaign plan for Michelle Nunn, the Georgia Democrat running for the U.S. Senate. Nunn is one of the two or three hopes Democrats have of actually picking up a Senate seat. The campaign is cynical, to say the least, especially in its assessment of Jews as a "tremendous financial opportunity" and Asians as "very tight." Ricochet looked at the report and found one area the campaign felt very good about: How Nunn could count on the media to be on its side and even warn them of in advance of GOP attacks: Her strategists are optimistic that the media won’t prove much of an

Leaked doc: Michelle Nunn non-profit

The National Review got hold of a 144-page internal document drafted for the Michelle Nunn campaign in December. It includes plenty of juicy revelations on campaign strategy, including a potentially serious issue with a Points of Light connection to a charity that has ties to Hamas, which is now at war with Israel. The revelation came from an internal examination of the nascent campaign’s potential weaknesses and how Republicans could attack them. Points of Light, through a service called MissionFish, helped validate thousands of charities for EBay users who wanted to auction items and donate the proceeds to a specific charity.

Obama Thanks Muslims for
‘Building the Very Fabric of Our Nation’

A statement put out today by President Barack Obama on the occasion of a religious holiday is raising some eyebrows. The holiday is a Muslim one called "Eid-al-Fitr" and the statement says: his last month has been a time of fasting, reflection, spiritual renewal, and service to the less fortunate. While Eid marks the completion of Ramadan, it also celebrates the common values that unite us in our humanity and reinforces the obligations that people of all faiths have to each other, especially those impacted by poverty, conflict, and disease. In the United States, Eid also reminds us of the many achievements and contributions of Muslim Americans to

Trenton – A 20-year-old Trenton man will spend nearly 30 years behind bars after he pleaded guilty to choking a woman before sexually assaulting her unconscious body, not knowing the entire incident was caught on tape. Dante Picott was sentenced last week after he pleaded guilty in January to a 10-count indictment that included charges of kidnapping, robbery and multiple aggravated sexual assault offenses, admitting that at 1:30 a.m. on May 2, 2012, he choked and punched a woman into unconsciousness before dragging her behind a row of bushes to conceal her from passersby. Picott then sexually assaulted the victim,

A strike on a Gaza park killed 10 people Monday, nine of them children, as Israeli and Palestinian authorities traded blame over the attack and fighting in the Gaza war raged on despite a major Muslim holiday. A truce between the sides remained elusive as diplomats sought to end the fighting at the start of the Eid al-Fitr holiday, marking the end of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan. In Israel, meanwhile, the military said a mortar attack on southern Israel caused "deaths and injuries," but did not disclose further details. Israeli media reported that the attack killed at least four people,

The two suspects in custody in connection with Friday´s deadly carjacking that killed three young children have each been charged with three counts of murder, carjacking and sexual assault. During an afternoon news conference at Police Headquarters, District Attorney Seth Williams announced that Jonathan Rosa, 19, and Cornelius Crawford were each charged with murder in second degree and other offenses, adding that they face hundreds of years in prison. (Snip) Crawford was convicted in 2007 of robbery, sentenced to 13 years, paroled, jailed again, then released again recently, Williams said. The men were taken into custody Sunday night, concluding a citywide manhunt

More than 2,500 Ground Zero rescuers and responders have come down with cancer, and a growing number are seeking compensation for their illnesses, The Post has learned. The grim toll has skyrocketed from the 1,140 cancer cases reported last year. In its latest tally, the World Trade Center Health Program at Mount Sinai Hospital counts 1,655 responders with cancer among the 37,000 cops, hard hats, sanitation workers, other city employees and volunteers it monitors, officials told The Post. The tragic sum rises to 2,518 when firefighters and EMTs are added. The FDNY, which has its own WTC health program, said Friday it counts

Illegal immigrants plan to picket the White House Monday afternoon, calling on fellow immigrant-rights advocacy groups to refuse to meet with the Obama administration until President Obama specifically includes illegal immigrants in any future meetings. “We are among the millions of people who will either benefit or be harmed by the decisions the President makes, and we are here to represent ourselves in any future negotiations,” said Rosi Carrasco, one of organizers, in a statement announcing the action. Billing themselves “undocumented immigrant leaders,” the organizers said they will erect a picket line to symbolize their demand. The groups are fighting

State Dept. Respects Religious
Liberty In Countries Overseas,
But Not In The US
Daily Caller, by Kate Patrick    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 7/28/2014 5:27:46 PM     Post Reply
Sen. John Kerry spent more than 20 minutes discussing the religious crises overseas during the 2013 Annual Report on International Religious Freedom, advocating religious freedom for all and declaring religious liberty to be “a universal value… ingrained in every human heart… a birthright of every human being.” “That’s what we believe,” Kerry said. But Kerry’s speech has some ironic timing. He’s speaking on behalf of the State Dept. – that is, the federal government — the same federal government that tried to force a business to provide contraceptives contrary to the employers’ religious beliefs.

National Security Adviser Susan Rice on Monday said the civilian death toll in Gaza is “alarming.” Appearing on MSNBC, the top White House adviser first said that the Obama administration “fully supports” Israel’s right to defend itself against threats like those from Hamas. “It’s the U.S. view, as well, that the death toll and the civilian toll in Gaza is rising in an alarming pace,” Rice continued. “It’s a concern that is grave and deepening on the part of the United States, the American people and the entire international community.” Rice proceeded to call for “an immediate, unconditional humanitarian cease-fire,” echoing what

The Islamic State has opened a “marriage bureau” for women who want to wed militants in its “caliphate” spanning northern Syria and Iraq. The bureau, operating out of Al-Bab, in northern Syria, is designed for “single women and widows who would like to marry IS fighters,” the U.K.-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights told Agence France-Presse. Citing residents, the organization said women were asked to register with the office, “and IS fighters will come knocking at their door and officially ask for marriage.” The Islamic State has seized large swaths of northern and eastern Syria, the Iraq-Syria border, and parts of northern and

The phone lines are jammed. The American people have risen up in response to a rallying cry from Sens. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) and Ted Cruz (R-TX), overloading the phone lines on Capitol Hill to pressure their members of Congress to fight against President Obama’s planned executive amnesty for millions of illegal aliens. “I was on hold with the Capitol Hill switchboard about a minute or so each time I called my Representative and my two Senators,” Catharine Trauernicht, a Tea Party activist in Virginia, told Breitbart News Monday. “Typically, my calls are answered right away, but I always know that

Social networking website Facebook has stated that a group created by anti-Semitic users entitled, "Death to zionst [sic] baby killer israeli jews" falls within its Community Standards guidelines, despite inciting hatred and violence against a particular race. Philip Klein of the Washington Examiner originally reported the news, stating: "A Facebook page calling for the death of Israeli Jews does not violate the social network´s "community standards," according to multiple messages sent by Facebook in response to user complaints." Breitbart London can also confirm that a number of other Facebook groups, including "Death to Muslims" and "Death to radical baby killer Iraqi Muslims"

I’m unable to feign surprise at LifeNews’ story about the latest from the provocateur in chief. President Barack Obama has nominated a new “Religious Freedom Ambassador,” but his nominee opposes protecting the religious freedoms of the owners of Hobby Lobby, who don’t want to be forced to pay for drugs for their employees that cause abortions. Obama announced that he will nominate Rabbi David Nathan Saperstein as Ambassador at Large for International Religious Freedom at the State Department. Saperstein is a longtime pro-abortion advocate whose group has opposed pro-life legislation. — Secretary of John Kerry also introduced him at a press briefing late Monday

Border Disorders Central American parents send their unescorted children northward in hopes of remittances and eventual anchor amnesty for themselves. Our friend Mexico facilitates the exodus through its own sovereign territory (hoping that no one stops along the transit, and happy that the border is further shredded). Central American governments seem happy too. More money will be sent back home. Fewer mouths will be left to feed. Possible dissidents will emigrate. A new generation of expatriates in the U.S. will grow fonder of and lobby for Central America the longer they don’t have to live there. We utter “the children,” and discussion

From Europe to the Middle East, we have seen how disaster follows U.S. retreat and disengagement from the world. But the one area where President Obama seemed to be leaning forward was drone strikes. He personally approved terrorist “kill lists” and has taken out many hundreds of terrorists with drones in Pakistan, Yemen and East Africa. So why, when Iraqi officials began pleading with him one year ago to strike Islamic State terrorists with drones, did Obama repeatedly refuse — standing by while terrorists overran the country? House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Ed Royce made the stunning revelation in a congressional hearing

Some 83,000 Pentagon employees and contractors who handle classified intelligence were found to have unpaid federal taxes totaling $730 million, which makes them more likely to “compromise classified information,” according to a report by the Government Accountability Office (GAO). At least 83,000 Defense Department tax delinquents “were determined eligible for secret, top secret, or sensitive compartmented information (SCI) clearances, or related interim clearances” despite their outstanding debts, according to the report. Some of those with back taxes are likely security-cleared employees of the executive branch, legislative branch, and the intelligence community, due to the large scope of the GAO’s analysis.

Secretary of State John Kerry has made a significant mistake in how he’s pursuing a Gaza cease-fire — and it’s not surprising that he has upset both the Israelis and some moderate Palestinians. Kerry’s error has been to put so much emphasis on achieving a quick halt to the bloodshed that he has solidified the role of Hamas, the intractable, unpopular Islamist group that leads Gaza, along with the two hard-line Islamist nations that are its key supporters, Qatar and Turkey. In the process, he has undercut not simply the Israelis but also the Egyptians and the Fatah movement that runs the Palestinian Authority, all of which want to see an end to

Reporters covering the Israeli-Palestinian conflict for NBC, CBS, Reuters, and other outlets brazenly reported false information on Monday claiming Israel was responsible for attacks on Palestinian civilians that were actually committed by Hamas. The reporters have faced no repercussions yet for the promulgation of erroneous and biased information. It is yet another example of how reporters for major outlets in the Middle East interject their anti-Israel bias into their supposedly neutral reporting on the conflict. After explosions were spotted at two civilian outposts in Gaza, the reporters immediately tweeted that Israel was to blame, though there was little evidence to corroborate this. In

The 30-second spot, among the first in the 2014 cycle to address the illegal immigration crisis on the border, features the former Massachusetts senator juxtaposing the security lines at airports and public events with the lack of security at the Mexican border. "We have an immigration crisis on our hands. We respond with compassion, but it´s time for us to secure the border once and for all," Brown says.
