Sessions Praises House For Standing

Will All "Be Held to Account" On Amnesty
Breitbart Big Government, by Matthew Boyle    Original Article
Posted By: SpeedMaster- 8/2/2014 12:09:24 PM     Post Reply
Senate Budget Committee ranking member Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) praised House Republicans late Friday evening for standing strong on immigration and warned Democrats in Congress that they will be held accountable for supporting amnesty for illegal aliens. “I applaud the hard work of House Republicans in putting together this package, and in particular would like to recognize the steadfast and unflinching efforts from members of our Alabama delegation,” Sessions said in a statement provided exclusively to Breitbart News. “The border bill has been substantially improved, and provides a marked contrast to the Senate Democrat bill—defeated on a bipartisan basis—that only perpetuated

This is his best opportunity to use his GET OUT OF JAIL FREE CARD !

Why is Obama hosting US-Africa Leaders
Summit in D.C. during Ebola Outbreak?
Canada Free Press, by Judi McLeod    Original Article

Let’s hope President Barack Obama, who’s hosting his first ever US-Africa Leaders Summit Aug. 4-6 in Washington is right about there being no threat of spreading Ebola by bringing African leaders into the U.S. during the worst Ebola outbreak in history. The stable nature of Ebola in aerosol makes it attractive as a potential biological weapon. “Filoviruses like Ebola have been of interest to the Pentagon since the late 1970s, mainly because Ebola and its fellow viruses have high mortality rates — in the current outbreak, roughly 60 percent to 72 percent of those who have contracted the disease have died —

A North Carolina restaurant is offering a 15 percent discount to customers who publicly give thanks for their meal with prayer. Mary’s Gourmet Diner in Winston-Salem has been offering the discount for four years, but a recent Facebook post showing a receipt with the discount has gone viral, drawing special attention to the restaurant, Fox News reported Friday. One customer told the news agency that she visited the restaurant during a business trip. Jordan Smith said she and her colleagues, “prayed over our meal and the waitress came over at the end of the meal and said,” Just so you know, we gave you a 15 percent discount for praying.”

Following the quick collapse of the cease-fire in Gaza, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told the White House not to force a truce with Palestinian militants on Israel. Sources familiar with conversations between Netanyahu and senior U.S. officials, including Secretary of State John Kerry, say the Israeli leader advised the Obama administration "not to ever second guess me again" on the matter. The officials also said Netanyahu said he should be "trusted" on the issue and about the unwillingness of Hamas to enter into and follow through on cease-fire talks.

The U.S. Department of the Interior announced that it will join forces with the Union Sportsmen Alliance on projects to rebuild, renew and restore national parks across the country. The Department will grant $3 million to “Boots on the Ground” volunteer projects in several states including, Illinois, Ohio, Virginia, Minnesota, Maryland, Nevada, Texas and Wisconsin. Interior Secretary Sally Jewell called the merger a “win-win.” “Not only will our nation’s parks and public lands benefit from the expert labor, but many young people will have an opportunity to work alongside the volunteers, learning about the great outdoors and gaining

Congress approves bill to replenish
Israel´s Iron Dome missile defense

WASHINGTON – Congress approved a $225 million package to replenish Israel´s missile defenses with its last order of business before a five-week recess, as the Jewish state´s cease-fire with Hamas unraveled and Israeli forces pushed deep into Gaza in search of a missing army officer. The House´s 395-8 vote in favor late Friday followed Senate adoption of the legislation by voice vote earlier in the day. The money is directed toward restocking Israel´s Iron Dome, which has been credited with shooting down dozens of incoming rockets fired by Palestinian militants over 3 1/2 weeks of war. The bill now goes to

The Third Taper Tantrum has been postponed, perhaps. It has not been averted. The US Federal Reserve is preparing to tighten. Dallas Fed chief Richard Fisher said today that rates may rise early next year: “we are closer to lift-off than the market assumed we were, sometime late in 2015. I believe we moved that forward significantly,” he told CNBC. Nomura, Morgan Stanley and HSBC all think the dollar is poised for a long secular rally. This will expose which EMU crisis states have really recovered, and which emerging markets have genuinely progressed beyond boom-bust credit cycles. This is the most important development

(Video) Normally, the Congressional votes are about as exciting as watching paint dry on growing grass, but when House Representative Tom Marino accused the Democrats of not being brave enough to pass immigration reform when they controlled the Congress, former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi jumped up and came at the guy! Marino struck a nerve by pointing out that the Democrats owned the entire Congress and White House for two years and did nothing about illegal immigration. Nancy Pelosi then crept up on Marino and began taunting him. Rep. Nita Lowey, D-N.Y., said it best: “What is she

A few days ago we shared the Washington Times story about a facility in New Mexico being closed due to a Chicken Pox outbreak. However, a little more research into the Artesia, New Mexico, Detainment Center and you can find out a week prior a little-known CDC/DHS inspection found there were 89 (eighty-nine) cases of Tuberculosis identified in the exact same facility. Is the Chicken Pox story a cover for the more troublesome Tuberculosis outbreak ? Is the New Mexico quarantine really because of Chicken Pox ? If so, why didn’t they quarantine the facility as they began x-ray screening for the

RadioShack’s Days Look Numbered

Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 8/2/2014 10:09:12 AM     Post Reply
The technology retailer RadioShack, which has spiraled downward in recent months, is rapidly running out of money, CNN Money reports. The chain may not be around for much longer. CNN says the retailer, which operates 4,000 stores, only has $62 million in the bank. Coffers may run dry as early as the fall of 2015. RadioShack officials say they need to close roughly one of every five stores—a total 1,100 locations altogether—and it seems that the chain lacks the funds even to do that. The chain has previously attempted to close stores, but failed to acquire the needed cash from its lenders. The store has long struggled to makeover its brand,

President Obama tried to reassure the public Friday that the deadly Ebola virus won’t be brought to the U.S. by travelers from Africa coming to Washington for a major summit he is hosting next week. The president said travelers from the countries where the outbreak is raging out of control — Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone — are being checked for signs of the disease before they leave their countries. “We’re making sure we’re screening on that end as they leave at the country,” Mr. Obama said. “We’re taking the appropriate precautions. This is something that we take very seriously.” Representatives from more than 50 African nations

A petition being circulated online with the hopes of forcing the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHCR) into investigating war crimes perpetuated by Hamas in the Gaza Strip has attracted over 12,000 signatories to date. The petition, started by Oxford University student Eylon Aslan-Levy calls for the United Nations to "Urgently investigate serious violations of international humanitarian law committed by Hamas in the Gaza Strip", citing the indiscriminate firing of missiles into civilian population centres, as well as using Palestinian children as human shields, and more.

Ben Carson, the former neurosurgeon turned conservative sensation, is taking a major step toward a 2016 presidential bid by forming a political action committee and selecting the man who would run his campaign, The Washington Times has learned. Emerging from two-days of meetings with supporters in Palm Beach, Fla., Dr. Carson told the Times on Friday morning he has selected Houston businessman Terry Giles to be his 2016 campaign chairman should he run and approved the formation of a PAC called One Nation. “Now is the time to start all of the appropriate exploration and investigation, and put down the structure that is necessary,”

Israel has carried out fresh attacks on Gaza and militants have launched more rockets into Israel as a hunt continues for a missing Israeli soldier. Palestinian officials said 55 people had died in Israeli strikes on Saturday, most in Rafah, where the soldier, Hadar Goldin, went missing. A series of rocket attacks into Israel was reported on Saturday morning. Later Israel sent messages to Palestinians in northern Gaza saying that they could return home. "We have told Beit Lahia residents that they may return to their homes. We advised them to avoid explosives placed by Hamas across the area", the Israel Defence Forces tweeted.

Rep. Greg Walden gives the Weekly Republican Party Remarks: No matter where you stand on the issues, this much is clear: Something has gone terribly wrong in Washington. And Americans have good reason to be fed up. For nearly six years now, we’ve had an administration that trusts government more than you, that spends rather than saves, that believes change comes from desks in Washington and not kitchen counters like this one. Republicans have sought to do things differently. We’ve focused on solutions to rein in big government, and help grow our economy. The House has passed more than 40 jobs bills,

President Obama's weekly remarks: Hi, everybody. My top priority as President is doing everything I can to create more jobs and more opportunities for hardworking families to get ahead. On Friday, we learned that our economy created over 200,000 new jobs in July. That’s on top of about 300,000 new jobs in June. We’re now in a six-month streak with at least 200,000 new jobs each month. That hasn’t happened since 1997. All told, our businesses have created 9.9 million jobs over the past 53 months. That’s the longest streak of private-sector job creation in our history. Because of you — because of your hard work and determination —

Israel will not send envoys to Gaza truce negotiations in Egypt on Saturday as planned, an Israeli official said, accusing Hamas of misleading international mediators. "Hamas is not interested in an accommodation," the official said on condition of anonymity. An Egyptian-brokered ceasefire on Friday broke down within hours on Friday. [Snip] Gazan militants emerged on Friday morning from a tunnel into Israeli territory, under deconstruction by the IDF, less than ninety minutes deep into a planned 72-hour cease-fire. One terrorist detonated a suicide vest, killing two Israeli soldiers; another abducted a third Israeli soldier, Hadar Goldin,

Five myths about impeachment

1. An impeachable offense is anything Congress says it is. (Snip) But Congress’s exclusive power to impeach does not license it to abuse that power, any more than the Supreme Court’s final say on laws gives it license to deliver arbitrary rulings. The framers carefully defined the grounds for impeachment as “treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors” — language with British legal precedent. They clearly did not want removal of the president subject to congressional whim. Indeed, they rejected the addition of “maladministration” after James Madison cautioned that “so vague a term will be equivalent to a tenure during pleasure

Asked by a convert to distill the Torah’s essence, Rabbi Hillel — Judaism’s great sage — taught, “What is hateful unto you, do not do unto your neighbor.” Like the Golden Rule that roots most ethical traditions, Hillel’s first-century precept aimed at inspiring a better society, one that brought order, dignity and peace to an otherwise cruel and warring world. That too much of the world still inhabits a darker moral universe — preferring violence, hate and death — is perhaps humanity’s greatest challenge. As Nazi refugee Albert Einstein understood, defending our collective values is the humane response. “The world is a dangerous

Katmandu, Nepal - A major landslide early Saturday morning near Nepal’s border with China killed at least eight people and left hundreds missing, officials in Nepal said. It also washed out a crucial highway and blocked a river, leading to a dangerous buildup of water. “Hundreds of people are missing and at least 40 houses are buried in the landslide,” said Ganesh Khatri Chhetri, a Nepal police spokesman. At least 16 people had been rescued, he said. A section of the Araniko highway connecting Nepal with China was swept away, and rising water around the blockage led thousands to seek higher ground.

(Snip) These are just a few names culled from as many as 31 million owners of accounts held by New York State as unclaimed property — accounts surrendered by banks, insurers, utility companies and others that said they had tried but failed to find the rightful owners of deposits, dividend checks, back wages, rebates and other forgotten funds, which have grown to a record $13.3 billion. More than $700 million from abandoned and dormant accounts flooded into the state in the last year alone.

Berlin - Across Europe, the conflict in Gaza is generating a broader backlash against Jews, as threats, hate speech and even violent attacks proliferate in several countries. Most surprising perhaps, a wave of incidents has washed over Germany, where atonement for the Holocaust and other Nazi crimes is a bedrock of the modern society. A commitment to the right of Israel to exist is ironclad. Plaques and memorials across the country exhort, “Never Again.” Children are taught starting in elementary school that their country’s Nazi history must never be repeated. Even so, academics say the recent episodes may reflect a rising climate of
