Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 8/1/2014 2:59:05 AM     Post Reply
Denver - Colorado will begin issuing driver´s licenses and identification cards to immigrants Friday regardless of their legal status, underscoring a sea change in a state that less than a decade ago passed strict immigration enforcement laws. Now, thousands of immigrants are waiting to get cards they hope will add a degree of legitimacy to their residency in Colorado. About 9,500 people are signed up for appointments through the next 90 days to get the documents, with more getting scheduled every day. Both people in the country illegally and those who have temporary legal status will qualify.

Catholic Bishops Say Amnesty for
Illegal Immigrant Children Is ´Pro-Life´

Some Catholic bishops have recently suggested that granting amnesty to illegal immigrant children from Central America is consistent with “pro-life” Catholic teachings. As reported in National Catholic Register, Bishop David Zubik of Pittsburgh said that providing for the needs of the young illegal immigrants is one facet of a truly pro-life philosophy. “The Catholic Church responds to humanitarian crises here at home and all across the world because we are pro-life,” Zubik said in a statement on July 19th. “Being pro-life requires we protect and care for vulnerable persons from conception to natural death.”

Coulter on Border Crisis:
´We Need a Netanyahu´

Columnist and political commentator Ann Coulter declared that the United States needs a leader like Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to secure the border on the Thursday broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “Hannity.” “I wish we could have Netanyahu as our president ... we are being invaded. And I just wish people would talk about our border the way at least people like you and I talk about, the way we talk about Israel´s border. We need a Netanyahu here” Coulter said. And, “Netanyahu doesn't care what the religious leaders say weeping about Palestinian children. He doesn't care what the UN says. He doesn't care what



Weakened, but not down
for the count: Hamas may
resurface stronger than before
Jerusalem Post [Israel], by Ariel Ben Solomon    Original Article

Hamas is in no rush for a cease-fire despite being continually pummeled by Israeli attacks, according to some observers. That is because it knows that Israel and the West are seeking a cease-fire, which would, once again, allow them to rebuild and rearm. And as the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt saw many deaths since the overthrow of president Mohamed Morsi, the Palestinian branch of Hamas is also willing to sacrifice lives. After all, their motto is, “Allah is our objective. The Prophet is our leader. The Koran is our law. Jihad is our way. Dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope.”

The IDF attacked over 120 terror targets overnight Thursday/Friday, ahead of an expected three-day "humanitarian ceasefire" between Israel and Hamas slated for 8:00 am Friday. The targets eliminated included Hamas rocket launchers directed at IDF naval forces along Gaza´s coast; two Hamas terrorists apprehended by the Paratroopers Brigade; an Islamic Jihad operations room with two senior terrorists, one of whom was reportedly hit during the IAF airstrike; and two terror tunnels uncovered by the Givati Brigade. Three terror tunnels were also detonated overnight. A three-day bilateral truce was declared at 8:00 am between Israel

Washington - Majority Leader Eric Cantor gave his farewell address Thursday as the No. 2 most-powerful Republican on the House side of Capitol Hill. In remarks filled with gratitude and touches of humility, the Republican who was shockingly turned out of office by Virginia voters in a June 10 primary thanked his colleagues and staff. He also sent good wishes to Rep. Kevin McCarthy of California, his close friend, who inherits a big to-do list when Congress returns from its August recess. "This is a privilege of a lifetime," Cantor said, as his speech was interrupted by applause. He was honored with a standing ovation by Republicans and

CA Candidate Neel Kashkari´s
Homeless Week Makes the Case

Republican California gubernatorial candidate Neel Kashkari recently spent a week homeless on the streets of Fresno, CA, and he may have discovered why so many American workers oppose illegal immigration. His struggles to find a job--let alone food and a roof over his head--exemplify why American workers oppose illegal immigration and President Barack Obama´s plans to give millions of illegal immigrants work permits in an economy that has not recovered for them. On Thursday, fierce opposition to Obama´s potential granting of work permits to millions of illegal immigrants caused House GOP leaders to pull their border bill,

Gaza City (Palestinian Territories) - A 72-hour truce agreed by Israel and Gaza militants started Friday at 0500 GMT, with diplomats hoping it will pave the way for a longer-term halt to hostilities. AFP journalists in Gaza said that with the official beginning of the ceasefire the skies over Gaza fell silent, although in the preceeding two hours there was heavy Israeli fire and the sound of outgoing rockets.

How mass migration hurts us all:

Mass immigration will damage the living standards of everyone in the country as minor economic benefits are outweighed by the social pressures of a relentlessly rising population, one of Britain’s most eminent Left-wing economists declared yesterday. Professor Robert Rowthorn, Emeritus Professor of Economics at Cambridge University and a longstanding adviser to Whitehall departments, said the economic advantages of immigration are ‘unlikely to be very large’. But the downside – from building on the green belt to the overcrowding of cities – means that the consequences of large-scale immigration ‘are mostly negative for the

Reps. Chris Smith (R-N.J.) and Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.) told reporters the U.S. should take immediate action following a hearing on Thursday where a Syrian defector shared grisly photographs of dead Syrians who he said died at the hands of the Bashar al-Assad regime. “The president of the United States today can begin working and announce the effort to establish an international war crime tribunal patterned after the three that have been very successful – Rowanda, Sierra Leone´s special court then the Yugoslav court,” Smith said when CNSNews.com asked what President Barack Obama should do to address the crisis.

DENVER — The Democrats’ “war on women” strategy may resonate with liberals, but it’s losing ground with crucial female swing voters in Colorado, said a poll released this week. A whopping 77 percent of women voters surveyed agree that they “clearly see through the so-called Democrat ‘War on Women’ messaging strategy,” according to Magellan Strategies in Louisville, Colo. The poll also found that 67 percent of those surveyed “do not fear a government bureaucrat taking birth control away from them, but what they fear are politicians using the issue of ‘access to birth control’ as a political tactic to scare

On July 18 the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia ruled that the Department of Justice must "provide a detailed listing of all [Fast and Furious] documents that it has withheld from Congress." The ruling was handed down by U.S. District Court Judge John D. Bates and was the result of a September 2012 Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit brought by Judicial Watch. The ruling was announced by Judicial Watch on July 31. According to the announcement, Bates went against the DOJ´s claims that releasing information to Judicial Watch "would interfere with the [DOJ´s] continuing litigation with

Israeli military intelligence is facing criticism for failing to comprehend the network of tunnels and other underground facilities built by Hamas terrorists in the Gaza Strip. Dan Pollak, co-director of government relations for the Zionist Organization of America, said early estimates of Israel’s operation to root out Hamas rockets has diminished the terrorist group’s arsenal. Hamas‘ 10,000-rocket arsenal is now believed to be half that number. “We’ll see when the war was over,” Mr. Pollak said in an interview, “but it is clear that the underground tunnel complex was far more extensive than Israeli military intelligence understood.”

Late in the afternoon, officials with the U.S. Department of Justice announced that a second man suspected in the killing of U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry was extradited to the United States from Mexico on Thursday. Friday, Ivan Soto-Barraza is scheduled for an arraignment Friday at the U.S. District Court in Tucson. He is one of five defendants authorities say were involved in Terry´s death during a firefight near Peck Canyon west of Rio Rico in December 2010. “This marks another step forward in our aggressive pursuit of those responsible for the murder of Agent Brian Terry, who made the ultimate

John Kerry is upset by heavy criticism from Israelis — left, right and center — of his recent cease-fire diplomacy. But that’s only half the story. More significant is the consternation of America’s Arab partners, starting with the president of the Palestinian Authority. Mahmoud Abbas was stunned that Kerry would fly off to Paris to negotiate with Hamas allies Qatar and Turkey in talks that excluded the PA and Egypt. The talks also undermined Egypt’s cease-fire proposal, which Israel had accepted and Hamas rejected (and would have prevented the vast majority of the casualties on both sides). “Kerry tried through

Republicans may yet win the elections in November. They may end up in control of both houses of Congress come January. But in the final week before a lengthy August recess, they have shown a remarkable capacity to complicate their path to victory. The latest blow came Thursday in what has become predictable fashion: chaos in the House. Amid fractious infighting, House leaders abruptly pulled their alternative to President Obama’s bill to deal with the influx of Central American children crossing the border. What was said to be a national crisis turned into one more problem facing deferral. But there

GAZA CITY – It was around 2:30 p.m., and the word had spread on al-Jalla Street. An Israeli airstrike was about to unfold. The target: a gray, concrete building of moderate height in the heart of Gaza City. Children gathered on balconies. Young men congregated at an intersection. Others placed bricks and tires blocking off a section of the street that ran past the building. A man in a tank top and shorts served as a traffic policeman, directing vehicles to take a detour. Cars stopped. More people stepped out, their eyes glued to the ill-fated building. And they all

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — President Obama on Wednesday delivered an optimistic report about the effects of the administration’s policies in spite of congressional inaction, buoyed by the announcement that the economy grew more than anticipated in the spring. The president told a crowd of about 1,500 at the Uptown Theater here that the economic strides were starting to reap rewards, including putting the United States back on top with investors. “The decisions that we made to rescue our economy, to rescue the auto industry, to rebuild the economy on a new foundation, to invest in research and infrastructure, education —

WASHINGTON — Immigrant activists and religious leaders massed outside the White House on Thursday to protest against U.S. policies on deporting migrants in the country illegally, and police arrested 112 demonstrators they say blocked traffic. The protesters urged President Barack Obama to immediately halt all deportations. They also called on him to extend relief for migrants by decree and to protect Central American children crossing into the U.S. unaccompanied by adults. Minerva Carcano, a bishop for the United Methodist Church in Los Angeles, said such protests are needed to “raise a moral voice, because you do not hear from

There was high drama on the Senate floor this evening. Harry Reid brought on for a vote President Obama’s $2.7 billion proposal to support illegals from Central America who are flooding across the border, in the form of a supplemental budget request. An extremely knowledgeable Senate insider offers this blow-by-blow account of what happened: Harry Reid filled the amendment tree on the supplemental, meaning no amendments can get votes. Sessions offered a motion to table the filled tree with stated purpose of making room to get a vote on the Cruz amendment. “Filling the tree” has been Reid’s preferred strategy

Aw, is someone sad? Rep.

Israel and Hamas have agreed to a three-day ceasefire, the UN and US have jointly announced.

KRGV reports that a refurbished detention center in Karnes City, TX, will be used to house hundreds of women and children who crossed into Texas illegally. The center’s rooms, called “suites,” have only been used to house adult illegal aliens in the past, but with the recent surge of unaccompanied minors from Central America, it will now be used to house kids too. KRGV’s story says that the illegal aliens will only be housed at the center for an average of 23 days, or that’s the federal government’s claim. The facility includes flatscreen TVs in each suite, plus ping pong

Congressional approval ratings are at a historic low, and after what has happened over the course of the last twenty four hours – I can see why. On the House floor Wednesday, longtime Democrat Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee made the startling claim that “We did not seek an impeachment of President Bush, because as an executive, he had the authority.” These are the moments when you say “Really?” The problem here is that Rep. Lee lied to the American People inside the People’s House. Good thing for her that when you make speeches on the floor of the House of
