Rep. Mike Rogers (R-Mich.), the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, plans to retire from Congress after his current term to host a nationally radio show syndicated by Cumulus Media, he announced Friday. Rogers, 50, made the announcement in a statement and during interviews on Michigan radio stations Friday morning. "I have always believed in our founders´ idea of a citizen legislature," he said in his statement. "I had a career before politics and always planned to have one after. The genius of our institutions is they are not dependent on the individual temporary occupants privileged to serve." Lew Dickey, the CEO of

Rogers must be afraid Boehner will not win the next election cycle, or if by chance he does, not be Speaker. Getting out when he has a chance.
He leaves little time for another candidate to get up to speed for this next election.

I wish those career politicians like Pelosi and Reid would follow suit. We should have term limits.

I am thrilled beyond measure. Let´s get someone that loves the constitution as his replacement. He thinks the NSA should have the power to snoop on innocent citizens while Clapper lies to Congress and Obama corrupts the IRS, DOJ, DPA et al.

We have some well meaning posters here that think the NSA should be allowed to monitor who we call. They want to let Clapper walk, but nail Snowden. I do not stand with them. My message to the NSA - get smarter. This is America. Quit your whining and find better technology. We are a free people. Get your butt in gear and figure out another way to get your information without spying on us.

Billionaires Call For Amnesty As Obama
Plans To Legalize Millions of Illegal

Breitbart´s Big Government, by Matthew Boyle    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 7/11/2014 3:01:00 PM     Post Reply
Billionaires Warren Buffett, Sheldon Adelson and Bill Gates have teamed up to call for amnesty for America’s illegal immigrants as a solution to the ongoing crisis at the border as President Barack Obama mulls granting amnesty to millions via executive power. “The three of us vary in our politics and would differ also in our preferences about the details of an immigration reform bill,” Buffett, Adelson and Gates wrote in the New York Times. “But we could without doubt come together to draft a bill acceptable to each of us. We hope that fact holds a lesson: You don’t have

White House stands by claim that

The White House is standing by a statement on its website claiming that border security is at its strongest in history even in the face of a spiraling border crisis in Texas. Under the heading “border security” on the White House website´s section on President Obama´s immigration proposal, the whitehouse.gov website gives the president credit for having "doubled the number of Border Patrol agents," saying "today border security is stronger than it ever has been." The White House says the statement is true despite the estimated 52,000 unattended children who have crossed the southwest border so far this year and the roughly

President Obama is fond of writing off critics of so-called “global climate change” as "flat-earthers” who deny “settled science.” And it looks like the president is now taking that same dismissive tone with critics of his administration´s position on immigration reform. "We know that if we pass immigration reform, it´s not just good for the families, it´s good for the economy: We attract the best and the brightest; they invest here, they create jobs,” he said Wednesday night at a Democratic fundraiser in Austin, Texas. “It´s estimated that it would cut our deficit and the economy would grow by more

President Obama has spent most of the week attacking Republicans for being incompetent, unproductive, unreasonable and entirely responsible for the dysfunction that grips the nation´s capital. He started out strong Wednesday with Democratic fundraisers in Colorado, attacking Republicans for being the so-called “party of no,” and then finished with flair in Texas as he attacked the GOP for being unwilling to do its job. “Sometimes I feel like saying to these guys,” Obama said Thursday during an address in Austin, Texas, “I’m the guy doing my job. You must be the other guy.” The quip, which drew laughter from the

The Obama administration is expanding its online data search of Americans to find potential civil unrest -- like the 2010 Tea Party movement -- and squash it before they take root, a prominent financial advisor has warned clients. David John Marotta compared the administration´s efforts to those used by former FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover against his critics and 1960s activists. "Targeting activists isn´t anything new. J. Edgar Hoover made it his life´s work. What has changed is the vigor with which the government has assumed its own activism against certain groups," he said. “If you wonder why the National Security Agency

Hispanic Lawmakers to Obama:
Take ‘Executive Action’ to
Stop All Deportations
Cybercast News Service, by Penny Starr    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 7/11/2014 2:29:58 PM     Post Reply
Reps. Luis Guiterrez (D-Ill.) and Raul Grijalva (D-Ariz.) joined immigration activists Thursday in calling on President Barack Obama to stop deportations and allow illegal aliens to have work permits. It´s the latest effort to compel the president to make sweeping changes to immigration law through executive orders. The Democrats also want Obama´s Deferred Action on Childhood Arrivals (DACA) policy to apply to parents of so-called Dreamers and others, putting them on a path to citizenship as spelled out in the immigration bill (S.744) as passed by the Senate in June 2013. The House has not taken up that bill.

In New York City, First Lady Michelle Obama spoke at the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) convention, promising that her husband would act on his own to fix the broken immigration system. “So make no mistake about it, we have to keep on fighting as hard as we can on immigration,” she said as the crowd cheered. “And as my husband has said, he’s going to do whatever administrative action it takes to fix this broken system.” Obama reminded the attendees that they couldn’t wait for Congress to act on their future and urged them to seize opportunities

MCALLEN, Texas—Illegal aliens are being allowed to fly on commercial airliners without valid identification, according to the National Border Patrol Council (NBPC). “The aliens who are getting released on their own recognizance are being allowed to board and travel commercial airliners by simply showing their Notice to Appear forms,” NBPC’s Local 2455 Spokesman, Hector Garza, told Breitbart Texas. “This is not the CBP [Customs and Border Protection] or another federal agency renting or leasing an aircraft, these are the same planes that the American public uses for domestic travel,” said Garza. “This just adds insult to injury.

WASHINGTON - The White House said on Friday it would be willing to work with congressional Republicans to pass an emergency spending measure to address a flood of undocumented children attempting to cross the southwestern border but urged lawmakers to act quickly. Asked about lawmaker comments that the president´s $3.7 billion request is too high, White House spokesman Josh Earnest said the situation requires the government to rapidly step up its response. "We´re open to working with Democrats and Republicans in Congress to get this done," Earnest said. "The president has moved quickly to be very clear about what specifically

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) yesterday described herself as a “lioness” when it comes to protecting children. She also called not only for the U.S. government to process minors arriving illegally from Central America on a “case-by-case basis" but for the government to “treat the Mexican kids the way they treat the non-contiguous country kids.” “Quite frankly, I would rather they treat the Mexican kids the way they treat the non-contiguous country kids,” Pelosi said at a Capitol Hill press conference on Thursday, claiming that sending these children back to their home countries would be like “sending them back into a

We’re facing a humanitarian crisis on our southern border, caused in very large part by the president’s June 2012 order halting the deportation of young illegal immigrants. (The number of children who have surged across the border in the last eight months is ten times what it was in 2012.) And what is the president’s response? “Barack Obama goes after Republicans on immigration,” according to a Politico headline. Over at hotair.com Noah Rothman does a nice job documenting the president’s blame shifting. And an exasperated House Speaker John Boehner said on Thursday, “He’s been president for five-and-a-half years.

Privacy: President Obama promises your personal financial info will be safe in his Big Brother database, but the agency stockpiling that data by its own admission can´t keep other, less-sensitive info safe. Raising new data security and privacy fears, a former Consumer Financial Protection Bureau official has blown the whistle on the sievelike nature of the data the agency already is collecting and storing on consumers. Kevin Williams, a former CFPB quality-assurance monitor, testified before a House banking subcommittee that there have been a number of incidents in which a consumer accidentally received another consumer´s

Despite fiery statements issued by Hamas spokesmen over the past 48 hours, it was obvious Tuesday night that the Islamist movement was searching for ways to rid itself of the current escalation. Hamas feels that it has been forced into a confrontation with Israel – one that it did not want at this stage because of its increased isolation and financial crisis. The massive Israeli air strikes on the Gaza Strip over the past 24 hours have surprised Hamas and other Palestinian groups. Hamas apparently expected a limited response to the recent rocket attacks on Israeli cities and towns. But as the

President Obama on Thursday claimed he is “not that partisan of a guy” as he mocked calls in the Republican Party for his impeachment. The president spent much of his address in Austin, Texas, hammering congressional Republicans, saying they have "blocked or voted down every serious idea to strengthen the middle class." “I’m just telling the truth now," Obama said. "I don´t have to run for office again so I can just let her rip.” He teed off on Republicans such as Sarah Palin who have suggested in recent days that he be impeached, and dismissed Speaker John Boehner´s (R-Ohio) proposed lawsuit

Rick Perry (R-TX) inviting him to a meeting with President Obama regarding the Texas border crisis was from Valerie Jarrett. While it´s routine for staff to draft such letters for elected officials, matters of such magnitude and to other elected officials of stature are almost always in the name of the principle.

President Obama’s ultimate weakness may be that he believes his own blarney. A year ago, Mr. Obama boasted in a “fireside” Web chat that his “is the most transparent administration in history.” There was not the slightest hint of irony. He may actually believe it. But three-dozen organizations representing newspapermen and other journalists, mostly liberals, beg to differ. In a testy letter to the president on Tuesday, the group decried the “slick non-answers” and cold shoulders they’re getting from Mr. Obama’s representatives, who have restricted access to any information they consider embarrassing to the administration. “The stifling of free expression,” the signers

Bush over the arguments his administration made for entering into war with Iraq in 2003. Pelosi accused Bush of being guilty of impeachable offense saying he "sent us into a war based on a false representation of the treat of weapons of mass destruction."

President Barack Obama does not believe his temporary amnesty program for illegal immigrant children has exacerbated the border crisis even though the number of illegal immigrant kids crossing the border spiked the year after he unilaterally enacted the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program in 2012. In fact, Obama thinks programs like DACA and a comprehensive amnesty bill are ways to solve the border crisis. Addressing the press Wednesday after meeting with Texas Governor Rick Perry to discuss the border crisis in Dallas, Obama, when asked if programs like DACA have caused or contributed to the crisis,

Bears, beer and horse heads: What exactly is going on with the leader of the free world? On a single day this week in Denver, President Obama scarfed down pizza and drinks with strangers, shot pool with Colorado’s governor and shook hands with a guy on the street wearing a horse mask. His top staffers are promoting these stops on Twitter with the hashtag #TheBearIsLoose — a term one of Obama’s aides coined in 2008 when the candidate would defy his schedule. More than five years into his presidency, Obama is trying to free himself from the constraints of office,

Screenwriter James Vanderbilt will make his directorial debut with the film, which will also star Cate Blanchett. Robert Redford has signed on to play Dan Rather in Truth, a film based on the 2005 memoir Truth and Duty: The Press, the President, and the Privilege of Power. The book, written by Rather´s producer Mary Mapes, centers on the firestorm that erupted in September of 2004 after Rather reported that George W. Bush had received special treatment while serving in the Air National Guard during the Vietnam War, a report that was based on documents that turned out to be forgeries.

Sarah Palin, the Republican vice presidential nominee in 2008, is advocating the impeachment of President Barack Obama. “It’s time to impeach,” she wrote, “and on behalf of American workers and legal immigrants of all backgrounds, we should vehemently oppose any politician on the left or right who would hesitate in voting for articles of impeachment.” I am a pretty fierce critic of the president myself, but let me be among the first to say that Republicans would be insane to follow Ms. Palin’s counsel.
