You Know What, Dude? Even If Benghazi
Was About A Video, It’s Still A Scandal

The Federalist, by David Harsanyi

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 5/5/2014 5:37:52 AM

Judging from the reaction of liberals on my Twitter feed, the appropriate reaction to any #Benghazi talk is snickering and derision. And the defense offered by administration, which amounts to mocking conservatives for offering any questions – former National Security Council spokesman Tommy Vietor dropping “dude” on Fox News’ Bret Baier was tailored to parallel this dismissive attitude – reminds me that even if all this was about a video, even if the GOP’s “conspiracy theory” regarding talking-point timelines is all wrong, the Obama administration’s reaction is still a scandal. By downplaying the Benghazi attack during the 2012 race, by

Keeping Dear Leader in power, by lying about his record right before the election, was more important than the safety, and very lives, of Americans abroad. And on top of that, to apologise to Islam as part of the lie!

Not a scandal, Democrats? Not impeachable? No, in your "minds" you´re still giddily glad Dear Leader lied and disgraced his office to save his skin. Congratulations on another Mission Accomplished, comrades.

Liberals mock when the truth hits close to home.
They belittle, condescend, and make those with a gripe look like foolish people.

The Media Goes Right Along With Them.

The GOP is going to have yet another select committee look into Benghazi, ZERO democrats are going to participate because THAT way they can call it a partisan witch hunt.
It´s what liberals so, if a scandal comes to light, they circle the wagons and make those who care about the scandal look like idiots.

We all know liberals will SAY anything, truth or lie, they just don´t care, because there is ZERO repercussions.

White House: Most Kids at
Border Won´t Stay in US
Associated Press, by Charles Babington    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 7/7/2014 4:08:49 PM     Post Reply
WASHINGTON -- The White House said Monday that most unaccompanied children arriving at the U.S.-Mexico border are unlikely to qualify for humanitarian relief that would prevent them from being sent back from their home countries. The pointed warning came as the White House finalized a spending request to Congress detailing the additional resources President Barack Obama wants in order to hire more immigration judges and open additional detention facilities to deal with the border crisis. White House officials said they planned to send the more than $2 billion request to lawmakers on Tuesday. White House spokesman Josh Earnest

Triangulation Beats Coalition Maintenance, Part XVIII: Major Garrett produces an excellent account** of Obama’s meeting with immigration activists last Monday, before the president announced he’d take “aggressive” executive actions to “fix as much of our immigration system as we can” without going through Congress. Highlights: 1) Obama’s revealingly thin-skinned. La Raza’s Janet Murguia had called him “Deporter-in-Chief,” so La Raza didn’t get invited. Oddly, Obama’s super-sensitivity here seems of a piece with the “coalition of the left” approach that has crippled his presidency. In his preferred mode of operation, Obama seeks to maximize his influence by working together with his natural

Immigration agents accused of database
abuse; cartels make corruption easy

At least a half-dozen federal immigration agents have come under investigation since 2012 for snooping into law enforcement databases — computer misconduct ranging from “self queries” to accusations that one of them tried to use the databases to warn drug smugglers if they were under investigation. The information, gleaned from highly redacted records obtained through the Freedom of Information Act, includes the investigation of one Customs and Border Protection officer tied to a “drug-trafficking organization that has utilized compromised law-enforcement officers in the past.” Border analyst James Phelps, a professor at Angelo State University, estimates that as many as 300 law

Is any freedom more important, more sacred than the right to raise a family without government intrusion? It’s a good question to ask this Independence Day weekend, as Americans reflect on the birth of a nation dedicated to the preservation of individual liberties: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” But as government grows bigger and more powerful, as politicians, bureaucrats and busybodies increasingly think they know best, American families constantly must fight interference

Cory Booker’s scary big lead
New York Post, by Editorial    Original Article

Normally, Cory Booker would be feeling pretty confident, given his 20-point lead over GOP challenger Jeffrey Bell. But a closer look at the latest poll numbers suggests Booker may have a rougher ride to re-election than anyone anticipated. That’s because the New Jersey senator’s support clocks in at just 43 percent. The same poll, by the Monmouth University-Asbury Park Press, has more than a third of voters saying it’s time for a change, though Booker’s been in office only eight months. Fully 15 percent — including one in eight Democrats — say they would vote for a third-party candidate. This, even though the

Nevada sheriff says Cliven Bundy

A Nevada sheriff has said that rancher Cliven Bundy must bear responsibility for actions that led to a standoff between federal agents and militia members earlier this year, but added that the federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) must reconsider some of its methods used prior to the confrontation. Clark County Sheriff Doug Gillespie told the Las Vegas Review-Journal editorial board Thursday that he had warned Bundy prior to the April standoff that any protests over the BLM´s attempt to round up more than 500 of the rancher´s cattle must be peaceful. The BLM says that Bundy owes over $1 million in

Who´s to blame for the flood of
children at the U.S.-Mexico border?

Posted By: Pluperfect- 7/7/2014 4:46:06 AM     Post Reply
The political battle escalated Sunday over the recent flood of undocumented children at the U.S.-Mexico border, with Republicans blaming President Obama´s failure -- or unwillingness -- to secure the border, and members of both parties faulting the GOP-led blockade of an immigration reform bill that would strengthen border security. The administration has blamed the surge in unaccompanied minors on violence and unrest in Central America, particularly in Honduras, El Salvador, and Guatemala, where a growing number of parents have dispatched their children to the U.S., often unaccompanied, in a blind shot at a better future.

WASHINGTON -- Lawyer Neil Eggleston could be looking toward a comfortable retirement on the generous nest egg he built through high-stakes representation of prominent Washington officials and corporate clients. Instead, he´s returning to a grueling post at a White House under siege on multiple legal fronts. The 61-year-old Eggleston has come on as chief counsel as President Barack Obama faces congressional investigations, pushback from the Supreme Court, and House Speaker John Boehner´s announcement last month that he intends to sue the president over his stepped-up use of executive orders. Among the myriad sensitive matters requiring Eggleston´s expertise, Boehner´s suit is an unexpected

According to ProPublica in a newly-published article: “Just how badly does the American Red Cross want to keep secret how it raised and spent over $300 million after Hurricane Sandy? The charity has hired a fancy law firm to fight a public request we filed with New York state, arguing that information about its Sandy activities is a ‘trade secret’…As we’ve reported, the Red Cross releases few details about how it spends money after big disasters. That makes it difficult to figure out whether donor dollars are well spent. The Red Cross did give some information about Sandy spending to

When the German botanist Philipp von Siebold sent a variety of plant specimens to the Royal Botanical Gardens at Kew in August 1850, he had no idea what he was unleashing on the world. Among the various floral and tuberous growths he dispatched was a plant which, 164 years later, is leaving a trail of mayhem all across the planet. It goes by the name of Japanese knotweed, or Fallopia japonica. It presents a pleasing appearance to the eye: heart-shaped leaves, bamboo stems and pretty, little white-flower tassels. What is less obvious is this plant’s relentless killer instinct. Look through the

Coal poised for rare win over Obama
The Hill [DC], by Kevin Cirilli    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 7/6/2014 5:17:25 AM     Post Reply
The coal industry is poised to score a rare victory over the Obama administration in the fight over the Export-Import Bank. Both of the working proposals in the House and Senate to renew the bank’s charter would reverse Ex-Im guidelines that prevent financing for overseas power plants that decline to adopt greener technology. Bank officials adopted the policies, which included exemptions for the world´s poorest nations, in December amid the Obama administration´s broader push to address climate change. Up until now, coal-state Democrats such as Sen. Manchin (D-W.Va.) have lacked political leverage to fight back. But that’s changing thanks to the looming Sept. 30

Israeli police say that an American teenager who was detained and allegedly beaten during violent protests over the death of his Palestinian cousin has been brought before a court in an attempt to extent his period in custody. The parents of 15-year-old Tariq Abu Khdeir, who goes to school in Florida, say their son was beaten by Israeli police during clashes over the killing of 16-year-old Mohammed Abu Khdeir, whom Palestinians say was killed by Israeli extremists in a revenge attack. Police say Tariq Abu Khdeir resisted arrest, attacked officers and was carrying a slingshot for lobbing stones when he was arrested. The

Murrieta, California is ground zero in America’s war against illegal aliens who are swarming our border. The Obama regime is not stopping the illegals. They are in fact doing everything they can to facilitate the entry of illegals into this nation. In California, and a lot of other places, real Americans have had enough. (Snip) According to media reports, the Obama regime is going to deploy riot squads to make sure those buses get through. The Regime cannot close off the border but it is going to use riot police to attack real Americans! This is simply beyond belief. Illegal aliens are just that, illegal.

HOUSTON, Texas--As illegal immigrants continue to spill across the U.S.-Mexico border, federal authorities are attempting to relocate the migrants from South Texas to housing facilities in states across the nation. One such facility is located in Murrieta, California, where a large group of protesters recently blocked a bus full of migrants from arriving.

The dummy was clad in overalls, standing by a walker next to the outhouse.

At Arizona State University, female students can earn extra credit by agreeing to not shave their armpits and legs for ten weeks. Breanne Fahs, a professor of women and gender studies, has made the special offer to her students as a way to encourage them to challenge social norms. “There’s no better way to learn about societal norms than to violate them and see how people react,” she told ASU News. “There’s really no reason why the choice to shave, or not, should be a big deal.

President Obama has quietly promised Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren complete support if she runs for president — a stinging rebuke to his nemesis Hillary Clinton, sources tell me. Publicly, Obama has remained noncommittal on the 2016 race, but privately he worries that Clinton would undo and undermine many of his policies. There’s also a personal animosity, especially with Bill Clinton, that dates from their tough race six years ago. A former Harvard law professor and administration aide, Warren would energize the left wing of the Democrat Party just as Obama did against Clinton in 2008.

The vast majority of 50,000 unaccompanied youths and children who have illegally crossed the Texas border during the last few months have been successfully delivered by federal agencies to their relatives living in the United States, according to a New York Times article. A second New York Times article report revealed that officials have caught an additional 240,000 Central American migrants since April, and are transporting many of them to their destinations throughout the United States. The 290,000 illegals — so far — are exploiting legal loopholes that allow them to get temporary permits to stay in the United States. Experts say that

Would you buy a bargain-priced airline ticket, but the catch was you had to stand for the entire flight? A new university study says the idea of standing-only sections on planes is no joke. An airline that removes seats can fit about 20% more passengers and, as a result, offer discounts of as much as 44% compared with airlines that offer big comfy seats, according to the study published in the International Journal of Engineering and Technology. Airlines in Ireland and China have looked into the concept, but none have yet put the idea into practice. Major carriers in the

We can answer that question….. ….But before we do everyone needs to stop being a co-dependent and accept what is in front of us. This guy, Tom Donohue, is at the root of the matter. Tom Donohue is the President of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the CoC. The CoC wants amnesty legislation, the CoC is also the primary source of campaign funding for the following Republicans: Mitch McConnell (R-KY), Rob Portman (R-OH), Bob Corker (R-TN),
