John Boehner´s double-speak rattles
House immigration foes

Washington Examiner, by Byron York

Original Article

Posted By:Drive, 4/22/2014 8:31:05 AM

When it comes to immigration, many Republican members of the House have long distrusted their leader, Speaker John Boehner. Now, things have gotten even worse. Boehner has assured members who oppose comprehensive immigration reform that nothing will be done on the issue until the Obama administration "can be trusted to enforce our laws." Given the average GOP Congressman´s view of Barack Obama, that means "never." That´s certainly how many members interpreted the speaker´s words.

Boehner clearly stated that nothing will be done until obama can be trusted to enforce our laws. The easiest proof that obama is enforcing our laws is to visibly enforce the current laws.

That will never happen, so Boehner will never bring up new immigration laws, unless he is a traitor to the USA and a liar.

there are some things that are absolutly necessary in government, in business, and in life.
Trust
Honor
Integrity
Honesty
It is harder to find this in life, witness the avalanche of divorce and illegitimacy
It is becoming harder to find in business, witness AIG, GM, Lehman Brothers, Ponzi, and too many others.
And it´s durn difficult to find it in government. Witness Boehner, Biden, Wasserman-Schultz, Schumer, Dingell, McCain, Graham, Grassley, McConnell, Cuomo, McAuliffe, Clinton and Clinton, Axelrod, Emmanuel, ValJar, Obumble, and .... need I go on?
Is there anyone here so foolish as to believe that these people can be trusted? That there is honor and integrity to be found among them? Here and there, perhaps. But you can´t count on it. That´s a loss of trust.
And that is why small government, with most decision making at as local a level as possible (subsidiarity, it´s sometimes called) is important - it reduces the reach and damage the scoundrels can do.
And it is also the reason that the social issues, flowing out of these matters of honesty, honor, integrity, and trust are so much more important than the so-called fiscal ones.
Boehner may be a nice guy and a good neighbor. I don´t know, and few do. But I don´t worry about the honesty of your neighbor, he probably can´t empty my bank account or steal my cows. As things are now, Boehener - or anonymous thugs in BLM -- can. Happens when dishonorable persons far away have to much power.
I want trust back.

Boehner makes me nervous, after some of the legislation he has gone along with. After all, he plays golf with Obama. Would we play golf with Obama, after all the destructive things he has done to this country? No.

Boehner is like a dog that eats its own crap. The dog knows it is forbidden, yet as soon as our back is turned, does it anyway.

Boehner is walking double speak. He has gotten a deal to reduce spending by $10 billion next year, then next year´s spending rises by a trillion. Boehner is only one half of one third of the government, but until Boehner was made speaker, the House was a third of the government.

How can anyone trust anything Boehner says. Something is wrong with Boehner, he acts strange. He is destroying the party with Cantor & Ryan. Where are the other house members? They should be speaking up against these three.

How 160,000 intercepted communications
led to our latest NSA story
Washington Post, by Barton Gellman    Original Article
Posted By: Drive- 7/11/2014 3:08:42 PM     Post Reply
Last weekend, The Washington Post published a story I wrote with Julie Tate and Ashkan Soltani about National Security Agency surveillance that sweeps in the conversations of people who are not foreign “targets.” The story, based on 160,000 intercepted communications I received from former NSA contractor Edward Snowden, has provoked a lot of questions, objections, and, I think, misunderstandings. Some readers and commentators have described the story as an overheated statement of the obvious: that surveillance of one person includes the content of people who talk to him. Others have said The Washington Post, not the government, invaded the privacy

Well, here’s one good reason for President Obama to have visited the border, beyond his contemptuous claim that it would be no more than a “photo op,” which of course is something The One never engages in. Texas Gov. Rick Perry last night told Fox News’ Sean Hannity that during his discussion with Obama Wednesday, he concluded that the president doesn’t even know where his own border patrol agents are situated, suggesting a gross lack of familiarity with the whole process. Perry said: We ought to be stopping people from crossing that border, not apprehending them after they get inland. And the

Why Obamacare As We
Know It May Not Survive
Fiscal Times, by Eric Pianin    Original Article
Posted By: Drive- 7/11/2014 8:05:09 AM     Post Reply
Obamacare could take another spin in front of the Supreme Court – with vastly uncertain consequences. Harvard legal scholar Laurence H. Tribe warned Tuesday of a “very high risk” that a crucial aspect of Obamacare – its government subsidies provision – could fall victim to a major legal challenge being mounted by conservatives. That is why, he also said, that the Supreme Court will almost certainly get “a second bite of the apple” in determining the fate of President Obama’s signature health law, with uncertain consequences.

CNN’s Jake Tapper thoroughly demolished and exposed as a liar one of the Palestine Liberation Organization’s foremost purveyors of propaganda Thursday during a tense interview. Tapper invited former PLO spokeswoman and legal advisor Diana Buttu to explain why Hamas is launching terror rockets and trying to kill Israeli citizens. Buttu attempted to push several lies about the conflict, but was quickly shot down by Tapper. “Why is Hamas launching rockets into Israeli population centers and are any other Palestinians trying to stop them from doing so?” Tapper asked. Buttu attempted to skirt the question and claim that the Palestinians have sought a ceasefire, which

At a press conference last night, President Obama placed the blame for the border crisis on Republicans, saying that because they are trying to block his $3.8 billion supplemental appropriation, they are responsible for the mess. He further stated that passage of his immigration reform bill would solve the border crisis for 20 years. Daily Caller: The Republican Party, but not the White House, has the power to block the flood of at least 100,000 migrants from Central America, President Barack Obama repeatedly told the nation in a Wednesday night press conference. “Are folks more interested in politics, or are they more interested in

Hamas Orders Civilians to

Hamas’ Interior Ministry has ordered residents of the Gaza Strip to remain in their houses if they are about to be bombed by the Israelis, a move that effectively turns citizens into human shields and is intentionally meant to boost the casualty rate, according to a copy of the order published by Hamas. Israel warns Gaza residents of air strikes before they take place so innocent civilians have time to flee and seek shelter. The latest Hamas order that citizens ignore Israel’s warnings and stay put is a clear effort by the terror group to increase the death count and apply pressure

Every now and then a scholarly journal retracts an article because of errors or outright fraud. In academic circles, and sometimes beyond, each retraction is a big deal. Now comes word of a journal retracting 60 articles at once. The reason for the mass retraction is mind-blowing: A “peer review and citation ring” was apparently rigging the review process to get articles published. You’ve heard of prostitution rings, gambling rings and extortion rings. Now there’s a “peer review ring.” The publication is the Journal of Vibration and Control (JVC). It publishes papers with names like “Hydraulic enginge mounts: a survey” and

WASHINGTON — Lois Lerner, the former Internal Revenue Service official at the center of an investigation into the agency’s treatment of conservative political groups, may have used an internal instant-messaging system instead of email so that her communications could not be retrieved by investigators, Republican lawmakers said Wednesday. The accusation against Ms. Lerner, the former head of the agency’s division on tax exemption, came nearly a week after the I.R.S. gave investigators thousands of her emails, including some that were destroyed when her hard drive crashed in 2011 but were recovered from the accounts of people with whom she had corresponded.

Two months after her abrupt exit from the Gray Lady, the former executive editor delivered a speech about how different Obama is from Bush—and why she was dismissed from her post. Aside from her unceremonious firing, former New York Times executive editor Jill Abramson is perhaps best known for her assertion that the Obama administration is the most secretive of any she has covered, and in 22 years in Washington, that covers a lot of White Houses. She got plenty of grief from President Obama’s top aides in the aftermath, and while other journalists made the same observation, Abramson’s words carried

Happening Now’s Martha MacCallum and National Review editor Jonah Goldberg considered a photo tweeted yesterday of President Barack Obama and Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper playing a game of billiards, and agreed it presented terrible optics given Obama’s decision not to go to the border during his upcoming trip to Texas. “This is a sign that the bubble around the White House is much thicker than people think,” Goldberg said. “Obama’s always liked to cultivate the idea of the ‘No Drama Obama.’ Maybe they think this shows him as an every-man kind of thing.”

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

In an appearance on Fox News Channel’s “Special Report” on Wednesday, Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) discussed the current state of affairs surrounding the issue of immigration. Flake, the guest of the show’s occasionally occurring “Center Seat” segment, admitted the rise of a populist movement opposing any immigration reform movement that included a version of amnesty. However, he admitted to being perplexed as to why there’s such an opposition stating there’s a need for not only low-skill labor “particularly in the agricultural areas and hospitality areas,” but high-skill labor of “those in the STEM fields.” Partial transcript as follows: STEPHEN HAYES, Weekly Standard: You

A cargo train used by Mexicans and Central Americans to travel toward the U.S. border derailed in the southern Mexican state of Oaxaca on Wednesday, stranding about 1,300 migrants, emergency services said. Many of the migrants aboard were young people and nobody was injured when the train nicknamed "the Beast" came off the tracks, a spokesman for local emergency services said. Since last October, more than 50,000 unaccompanied minors, most from El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras, have been caught illegally crossing the southwest border of the United States. Children say that they are fleeing violence at home and hope that they will be

The facts are simple. The IRS systematically targeted conservative and Tea Party groups after their activism proved decisive in the 2010 midterm elections—Obama’s famous “shellacking.” The effects of this targeting were widespread. Some Tea Party groups were neutered in the months before the 2012 presidential election. Few of the explanations or justifications of this targeting provided by IRS leaders and Obama administration officials have held up. IRS officials at first denied that any targeting had taken place. That was false. They later claimed that the targeting had involved only low-level employees in the Cincinnati office. That was false. They argued
