Schumer: Do not ‘jump to conclusions’
about connection between Boston
attacks, immigration

Daily Caller, by Alexis Levinson

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 4/19/2013 12:49:40 PM

WASHINGTON — New York Democratic Sen. Chuck Schumer admonished colleagues not to “try to conflate” the immigration reform bill that the Senate is considering with the bombings at the Boston Marathon, the perpetrators of which have been identified as immigrants. “I’d like to ask that all of us not jump to conclusions regarding the events in Boston or try to conflate those events with this legislation,” Schumer said Friday at a hearing of the Senate Judiciary Committee on the immigration bill. As the hearing was happening, the Boston metropolitan area was on lockdown, as police attempted to

Comments:
We shouldn´t try to conflate those events with this legislation?? Really? That´s all the more reason to do so! We all know he´s a lying political hack, just like his Supreme Leader 0bama. All he wants to do is shove that abomination through like they did 0bamacare and then we will find out the horrors contained therein. Rubio is insane for trusting this vile, malicious fool.

Better to have more Americans die in the future than to impede the immigration legislation? Not in my book!

So he says now that we know the terrorists were Islamic and entered this country on those "relaxed, diversity" visas the man-child is pushing.

I am sure Schmucky Schumer was just as insistent when the likes of Rachael Madcow and Chrissy Matthews were correlating the attack with disgruntled white Americans reacting to "Tax Day".

One thing is for sure the immigration authorities do not have a clue concerning the closely held foreign allegiances of the aliens they are allowing into the country and handing US citizenship to these days. Obviously they are muddling along with a naive liberal "honor" system that just about any alien hostile to the American way of life can easily defraud.

Common sense will tell you that stacking the deck with 20 million or more new aliens through another amnesty, and future liberalized immigration procedures, along with dubious promises of future increased immigration law enforcement by the Obama Administration that has a clear history of refusing to enforce the current immigration laws is going to make that situation much worse.

Go to McCain´s Senate page. He and Lindsey Graham have an important statement telling us this attack means we must pass this immigration bill. Yes, really.

Another interesting point that I know others have made (and can´t be emphasized enough), is this bill is ALL McCain, Graham and Schumer. And Rubio is allowing these guys to use him.

#46, my "wild guess" is that Perp 2 has already killed himself in some hidden
place, with his body booby-trapped in hopes he can kill lots more responders when he´s
found at last...

Thus he avoids capture and trial, avoids any pain or harm, prolongs a costly search,
and feels (felt) he might kill way more than he already has... Just my guess...

Is CAIR a RICO case?
American Thinker, by Mathew Hurwitz    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 2/16/2014 8:46:50 AM     Post Reply
The Council on American Islamic Relations, CAIR, claims to be an anti-defamation organization. In fact, as we shall see, it is anything but. CAIR was founded in 1994 by Nihad Awad and Omar Ahmed, who had ties with the Islamic Association for Palestine (IAP), which was established by the terrorist organization Hamas. Therefore, it is an outgrowth of the IAP. It opened its first office in Washington, D.C. with a donation from the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development, the largest Islamic charity in the U.S. CAIR should be, but is not, registered as a foreign agent.

In 2009, Rep. Joe Wilson (R-SC) apologized profusely to the White House for shouting, "You lie!" as President Barack Obama told Congress that Obamacare would not cover illegal immigrants. Now it would appear that the White House owes Wilson an apology, as Covered California--the flagship of state Obamacare exchanges--is recruiting illegal ("undocumented") immigrants to sign up for the program, regardless of their eligibility. The Covered California website includes a special page entitled: "No temas si eres indocumentado/a y quieres inscribir a tu familia en un seguro médico" ("Fear not if you are undocumented and want to enroll your family in health

New information about the intelligence available in the immediate aftermath of the Benghazi attack raises questions about whether the former No. 2 at the CIA downplayed or dismissed reporting from his own people in Libya that it was a coordinated attack and not an out-of-control protest over an anti-Islam video. Then-Deputy Director Mike Morell, whose own agency lost two employees at Benghazi, former Navy Seals Ty Woods and Glen Doherty, was heavily involved in editing the administration’s internal narrative on what happened – known as the “talking points” – which served as the basis for then-U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice’s controversial

President Obama said former NBA star Michael Jordan will always be his guy — but added LeBron James has a chance to be as good as anyone. Obama sat down for an interview with Charles Barkley on Thursday ahead of the NBA All-Star Game this weekend. Obama said Jordan’s time with the Chicago Bulls was a “magical” moment for the city, in a short clip before the interview airs Sunday. Jordan led the team to six NBA championships. “Now, I´m a Chicago guy, and Mike will always be the guy, for me, just because that was a magical moment for the city,” Obama

Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (Ky.) delivered a message to Tea Party critics when he cast a decisive vote Wednesday that led to Senate passage of a debt-ceiling hike: Bring it on. In perhaps his most defining moment in the 113th Congress, McConnell strode up to the dais and declared his “aye” vote in a clear voice heard throughout the chamber. It broke the impasse and seven more Republicans soon voted as well to end the filibuster. It was a risky decision for McConnell, who is facing a difficult primary battle from businessman Matt Bevin, a conservative backed by Tea Party groups. McConnell’s

Iranian Oil Exports Soar
as Sanctions Collapse
Washington Free Beacon, by Adam Kredo    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 2/14/2014 12:13:29 PM     Post Reply
Iranian oil exports soared in January, hitting new highs just months after the United States consented to billions of dollars in economic sanctions relief under the interim nuclear deal. Exports of Iranian crude oil jumped to 1.32 million barrels, up from December’s high of 1.06 million barrels, according to data from the International Energy Agency. The spike in exports—mainly to Japan, China, and India—has helped Iran’s once-ailing economy stabilize and decrease inflation. Iranian oil exports have steadily risen since negotiations with the West restored confidence in Tehran’s economy. The increase runs counter to a promise by the Obama administration that “Iran’s oil exports

Charles and David Koch are the two most evil people in American politics, right? We know that because Jane Mayer proved it with her landmark "Covert Operations" tour de liberal force in 2010. Well, it turns out that Mayer´s aim was off just a little, by like 58 slots on the all-time biggest donors in American politics list, as compiled by OpenSecrets.org. OpenSecrets.org tallied the top donors in federal elections between 1989 and 2014. Koch Industries -- privately owned by the Evil Koch Bros -- is on the list, to be sure, but doesn´t appear until the 59th slot, with $18 million

First Lady Michelle Obama apparently halted private-jet traffic at Aspen airport as she landed for a weekend of skiing while President Obama headed to California. Michelle, with her daughters, Sasha and Malia, was expected to touch down in Aspen Friday to spend Valentine’s Day and Presidents Day weekend away from her husband, who was meeting late Friday with Jordan’s King Abdullah II in Rancho Mirage, Calif. Mrs. Obama’s arrival amid tight security was expected to delay the arrival of other wealthy vacationers on private jets at the Colorado ski resort. One source said, “Some of those heading into Aspen were whining that

Jonathan Turley, faithful Obama supporter and liberal professor of constitutional law at Sandra Fluke´s alma mater, Georgetown University Law School, is sounding the alarm that "a system in which a single individual is allowed to rewrite legislation or ignore legislation is a system that borders on authoritarianism." Question for Mr. Turley: what kind of constitutional law professor votes for an inexperienced community organizer who believes that the U.S. Constitution is "fundamentally flawed" in the first place?

A growing group of Ted Cruz’s Republican Senate colleagues are infuriated with his tactics. So frustrated was Arizona Senator John McCain with the latest, forcing fellow Republicans to take a politically risky vote on lifting the debt ceiling, that yesterday he tweeted a Wall Street Journal editorial accusing the Texas lawmaker of instigating “needless drama that helps to explain why Republicans remain a minority.” (Snip)Cruz’s insistence Feb. 12 on a 60-vote threshold to advance legislation lifting the nation’s borrowing cap foiled his party leadership’s plan to let the measure move forward with only Democratic votes.

CHATTANOOGA, TENN. — The UAW suffered a devastating defeat at Volkswagen’s plant here as workers rejected union representation by a 712-626 margin.The defeat, which came despite Volkswagen’s neutrality, tarnishes UAW President Bob King’s legacy and could make it next to impossible for the union to extend its reach beyond domestic automakers.
“While we certainly would have liked a victory for workers here, we deeply respect the Volkswagen Global Group Works Council, Volkswagen management and (German union) IG Metall for doing their best to create a free and open atmosphere for workers to exercise their basic human right to form a union,” King said in a statement.

Washington Republicans on Sunday restated their argument that President Obama has violated the Constitution by using executive orders to alter the Affordable Care Act, but acknowledged they likely have no recourse or ability to stop another incident. Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, told “Fox News Sunday” that congressional Republicans think the president abused the government’s separation of powers by using the executive orders to sidestep Congress and delay the law’s employer mandate. “The president knows this is wrong.” - Sen. Mike Lee - However, he said critics would have a tough time winning in court because Congress lacks

RANCHO MIRAGE, Calif. — It’s a day of golf in Southern California for President Barack Obama while the nation’s capital recovers from this week’s snowfall. The White House says Obama teed off Saturday at the nine-hole course at the Sunnylands retreat in Rancho Mirage with childhood friends Bobby Titcomb, Greg Orme and Michael Ramos. Obama is spending the weekend at the estate. It used to be the winter home of the late billionaire philanthropists Walter and Leonore Annenberg. On Friday night, Obama and Jordan’s King Abdullah II met at Sunnylands for talks largely focused on Syria.

AUSTIN, Tex. — Luci Baines Johnson leaned forward in her father’s private suite at the L.B.J. Presidential Library, her voice breaking as she recounted the “agony of Vietnam” that engulfed Lyndon Baines Johnson and the pain she feels to this day of witnessing his presidency judged through the prism of a failed war. “Nobody wanted that war less than Lyndon Johnson,” said Ms. Johnson, 66, who is the president’s younger daughter. “No matter how hard he tried, he didn’t seem to be able to get out of that quagmire. Not only did he not get out of it in his lifetime,

Americans watching the Affordable Care Act’s implementation are witnessing a government policy debacle that is as large as any in memory. It is hard to imagine a more vivid demonstration of the ruinous consequences of government stepping into a market in which it doesn’t belong. And, sadly, what we are seeing now is only the beginning of the policy’s failure. In its most updated assessment of the ACA, the government’s own Congressional Budget Office caught the Democrats flat-footed by projecting that the law is severely flawed on a number of fronts, matching in many ways what the ACA opponents clearly

One in four Americans are completely unfamiliar with Nicolaus Copernicus´s 1543 theory that the Earth circles the Sun, according to a study by the National Science Foundation. (snip) The question - "Does the Earth go around the Sun, or does the Sun go around the Earth" - was answered incorrectly by 26 per cent of respondents. Fewer than half of the respondents - 48 per cent - are aware that humans evolved from earlier species of animals and just 39 percent answered correctly that "the universe began with a huge explosion". A total of 42 per cent of Americans said

Remington Arms Company, Inc., founded in 1816 in upstate New York, announced today they will build their new factory in Alabama and not the Empire state. Since New York Gov.

Syracuse.com reported: Remington Outdoor Co. plans to open a 500,000-square-foot factory in Alabama that would employ 2,000 people, AL.com and the Military Times reported today. The Military Times story says the expansion would not affect the gun company’s factory or jobs at the plant in Ilion, Remington’s

Once again, bitter feelings are being cast in the direction of Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz. With the House passing the “clean” debt ceiling bill and sending it to the Democratic-controlled Senate, it was clear that this particular bill was going to be passed and sent to the president for his signature. But Cruz didn´t want to let Senate Republicans, including Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., off the hook and give President Obama a blank check to once again increase the debt ceiling as we are drowning in red ink. He didn't want Republicans to simply vote against the bill, hiding behind the Democrat majority who were sure to pass it.

America loves trucks. California? The Prius hybrid. Toyota´s Prius was the best-selling vehicle in the state for the second consecutive year in 2013, highlighting California´s radically different taste in automobiles. Nationally, Ford´s F-Series truck has been the bestselling vehicle for more than three decades. (Snip) The average transaction price of the Prius is higher than what the other passenger cars at the top of California´s list cost, Brauer said. "People are buying the most expensive, the most political and the car with the most identifiable image," he said. "It makes a stronger statement than the other four even though
