Upping the ante in the spending showdown with Congress, the Obama administration warned Monday that looming automatic budget cuts will expose the nation to a greater risk of terrorist attack and a new influx of illegal immigrants. “I don’t think we can maintain the same level of security,” said Homeland Security Janet Napolitano. “If you have 5,000 fewer border patrol agents, you have 5,000 fewer border patrol agents.” With $85 billion in mandatory so-called “sequester” cuts due to start taking effect Friday, the administration is putting pressure on Republican lawmakers to raise more tax revenue to postpone at least
More despicable WH rhetoric? How low can the dem politico derelects go?
Gov. Jan Brewer was right many moons ago when she emplored this statist/dem President to, ´´Just do your job!´´ Americans say, ´´Keep your oath of office,´´ ...all to no avail. Instead, the, ´revenge,´ President continues slicing & dicing America the Beautiful, every-which-way, aided & abbetted by his statist/dem lsm/hollyweird/alphabet pawns. mmm mmm mmm
How about we lay off all of Big Sis´s border agents and instead start enforcing labor laws, tax laws, and perjury laws without racial discrimination?? No more favoritism for Our Beloved Illegal Guests. No more goobermint cheese.
Isn´t it stunning they are suddenly concerned. This regime is beyond anything I have ever seen before. And if we did have another terror attack the Republicans will be blamed for it! They just infuriate me. How I wish the Republicans were as half as vocal as these morons.
Disaster of biblical proportions! Old testament kind of things! Real wrath of God stuff! Fire and Brimstone coming down from the sky! Rivers and Seas boiling! Forty years of darkness! Earthquakes and volcanoes! The dead rising from the grave! Human sacrifices! Dogs and cats living together! Mass hysteria!
ahhh..W H.raise terror threat ...warns illegals could flood borders..well that would not happen if the WH just closed the borders and allowed the agents to do their jobs.. kind of double speak going on here...going to blame sequester for the WH not doing its own job and securing the borders.
Put troops on the border Obama, you´ve got plenty of them. Stop vacationing and going on stupid tours then dedicate those funds to border security. Does anybody other than his parasitic followers actually believe this charlatan?
Gee Obe double dooming again. If the cuts are going to destroy everything why would any self respecting illegal invade an already sacked wasteland? Perhaps the DC crew can escape the starving alone in the dark North of the Border by slipping across the border to seek amnesty there for a change. However the Cartel may object.
5,000 border patrol agents who are forced to wear their own handcuffs and turn their heads during the nightly crossings aren´t doing us much good anyway. We are sick of all government services and would gladly farm it out to the private sector. Shut it down.
I the DHS won´tprotect us we will need our goalguns &ammo to do their job, that have have abdicated for years to create 12plus millions of illeagals,that should have apprehended and deported,now that they are a powerful lobby they feel they can command.
The war with Eastasia has taken a disastrous turn! Our troops are fleeing in the face of this fiendish enemy! Big Brother demands you work even harder to crush the enemy! News flash! The enemy has retreated! Our troops are victorious! Peace reigns! We have never been at war with Eastasia: Eurasia is the enemy! We have always been at war with Eurasia!
If the Republicans were serious about educating the public about this, they only need to produce a few ads explaining this. It could be done in 30 second ads. They must go around the media directly to the public. Money spent on these ads would be well spent in my opinion. The can´t let the democrats define the issue. Get serious Republican leaders. This is not rocket science. Put the truth out there. Spend the money on something that could change minds. Don´t let the media and this administration win the messaging war.
The former South African president died Thursday at age 95. Remember him through his uplifting and revolutionary words. 1. "A good head and a good heart are always a formidable combination." 2. "Never, never again shall it be that this beautiful land will again experience the oppression of one by another. " 3. "There is no passion to be found playing small - in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living." (Snip) 12. "It is what we make out of what we have, not what we are given, that separates one person
BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: I´ve gotta tell, another little thing about Nelson Mandela. Do you realize in a couple of ways, maybe even more than a couple, Nelson Mandela has more in common or had more in common with Clarence Thomas than he does with Barack Obama? For example, Nelson Mandela (even prior to becoming president, but certainly after he became president of South Africa) insisted on compliance with his country´s constitution. He insisted on it. Obama looks at the US Constitution as an obstacle and makes end runs around it every day, practically. In that sense... These are the kind of
RUSH: Let me give you what is, I think, one of the most amazing things I ever heard Nelson Mandela say. We had fun with Mandela when he was in New York, when he came to New York and went to Yankees Stadium. But I´ll tell you, there are very few people that could have undergone what he went through and maintained any sense of dignity or optimism.(Snip) "Resentment is like drinking poison and then hoping it will kill your enemies." Is that not great? And it´s great because it´s exactly right. Resentment doesn´t do anybody any good.
The U.S. federal health insurance website HealthCare.gov, which has had technology problems since its October 1 launch, is now experiencing errors in transmitting applications about 10 percent of the time, a government spokeswoman said on Friday. The online insurance marketplace relays information about new customers in ´834´ transaction forms to the private insurance companies that provide the health plans. HealthCare.gov serves people in 36 states, while 14 states are running their own websites. "We believe nine of 10 transactions are being successfully transmitted," the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, or CMS, spokeswoman Julie Bataille said at a news briefing.
Washington — Thad Cochran, a Mississippi Republican who was first elected to the Senate in 1978, set up a generational and ideological clash in the state’s Republican primary when he announced Friday that he would seek a seventh term in 2014. While Mr. Cochran, who turns 76 on Saturday, has the support of many leading Republicans in the state, he is already facing opposition from Chris McDaniel, 41, a state senator aligned with the Tea Party who announced his candidacy in October and has won the support of some conservative groups. Mr. Cochran, who has raised less than $1 million
Rep. James Sensenbrenner Jr., the original author of the Patriot Act, says Director of National Intelligence James Clapper should be prosecuted for lying to Congress. "Lying to Congress is a federal offense, and Clapper ought to be fired and prosecuted for it," the Wisconsin Republican said in an interview with The Hill. He said the Justice Department should prosecute Clapper for giving false testimony during a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing in March. During that hearing, Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) asked Clapper whether the National Security Agency (NSA) collects data on millions of Americans. Clapper insisted that the NSA does not
Washington - President Barack Obama on Thursday defended his nuclear diplomacy with Iran before an audience of Israeli diplomats and senior members of the US Jewish community and officials. At a White House Hanukkah reception, Obama said that it was important for the United States to test Iran´s intentions, and pledged to keep working for a comprehensive deal to deprive Tehran of a nuclear weapon. "For the first time in a decade we have halted progress of Iran´s nuclear program," Obama said. "Key parts of the program will be rolled back even though the toughest of our sanctions remain in
When I was a kid, I knew two different Santa Clauses. The first had a fat belly, rosy cheeks, a long white beard, and skin as pink as bubble gum. He was omnipresent, visiting my pre-school and the local mall, visible in all of my favorite Christmas specials. Then there was the Santa in my family’s household, in the form of ornaments, cards, and holiday figurines. A near-carbon copy of the first one—big belly, rosy cheeks, long white beard: check, check, check. But his skin was as dark as mine. Seeing two different Santas was bewildering. Eventually I asked my father what
US President Barack Obama may have moved the masses attending Nelson Mandela’s memorial service with his stirring eulogy, but it was his grinning "selfie" with the Danish and British premiers that set social networks abuzz. In a candid moment captured by a photographer, Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt can be seen holding up her smartphone, with Obama lending a helping hand, as they pose for a picture with David Cameron, all three of them smiling broadly in their seats at Soweto’s World Cup stadium.(Snip)Mashable, the news and technology website, ran the photograph under the headline: ‘‘Dear Obama: Funerals are no place
Johannesburg - A man who provided sign language interpretation on stage for Nelson Mandela´s memorial service, attended by scores of heads of state, was a "fake," the national director of the Deaf Federation of South Africa said on Tuesday. Asked about the claim by The Associated Press, South Africa´s government said it was preparing a statement. Three sign language experts said the man was not signing in South African or American sign languages. South African sign language covers all of the country´s 11 official languages, according to the federation. It wasn´t immediately clear if the unidentified man was using a
On his way to the podium at the memorial ceremony for former South African president Nelson Mandela, President Obama walked down the line of dignitaries, greeting other leaders there to pay their respects. Among the hands shaken: that of Cuban leader Raul Castro. Obama neither made a special effort to shake Castro’s hand nor to avoid him. A snub might have been awkward: In his speech, Obama praised Mandela’s “greatest gift” as “his recognition that we are all bound together in ways that can be invisible to the eye; that there is a oneness to humanity; that we achieve ourselves by
House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) snapped at conservative groups that have come out in opposition to the budget deal reached Wednesday between Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.). "They´re using the American people for their own purposes. This is ridiculous," Boehner said at a press conference with other members of House Republican leadership on Wednesday. Over the past few days, a number of conservative groups have blasted the deal because it sets discretionary spending levels in the budget higher than previous levels under sequestration. In the past three days, the influential Heritage Action, Club for Growth, Americans
The Obama State Department has finally released a second round of photos revealing the harrowing devastation wrought by a terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012. The new photographs depict rampant damage to the consulate. They show charred walls, smoldering fires, Arabic graffiti defacing exterior walls, and scattered debris throughout. The extent of the damage would lead any reasonably serious person to conclude that this was a cold, calculated attack, carefully coordinated to mark the 11th anniversary of Sept. 11, 2001. Unfortunately for the American people, the Obama-Clinton-Rice cabal that led to the Benghazi cover-up was
A black fashion student says he was brutally attacked by a gang of Hasidic men who shouted anti-gay slurs at him while he was walking through Williamsburg after a night of partying, the Daily News has learned. Taj Patterson, 22, was headed home to Fort Greene around 4:30 a.m. on Dec. 1 when he says more than a dozen ultra-Orthodox Jewish men began assaulting him on Flushing Ave. and yelling, “Stay down, f----t!”
