Sen. Paul´s Office Responds
to my Voter ID Critique

American Spectator, by Aaron Goldstein

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 5/13/2014 11:23:56 AM

Over the weekend I wrote a post critical of Senator Rand Paul’s assessment that Republicans are “going crazy” over Voter ID laws. A short time ago, it was brought to my attention that Senator Paul’s office had read my post. Doug Stafford, Senior Advisor to the junior Senator from Kentucky, offers the following reply: Senator Paul was having a larger discussion about criminal justice reform and restoration of voting rights, two issues he has been speaking about around the country and pushing for in state and federal legislation. In the course of that discussion, he reiterated a point he has made before

Comments:
It looks like the Republicans are going squishy on everything lately, Voter ID, immigration, Obamacare, etc. What in the world will make them listen??

Senator Paul, you are proving yourself to be as wacky and unmoored as your old man. Why don´t you try blaming it on plagiarism?

Wy is Paul taking a dump on the 14th Amendment that guarantees my equal protection under the law. If people are illegally voting then I do not have an equal vote.

#3, go re-read the 14th. It´s focus is on rebellion and insurrection, and limiting states´ powers under the guise of ensuring equal protection under the law.

That said, I believe anyone who advocates amnesty in any form without first reforming our out-of-control welfare programs is either a traitor or under someone else´s thumb.

Trying to jump back over the shark is jumping it twice.

Boehner to Obama: Good Chance
for Amnesty Bill in Next Congress
Breitbart´s Big Government, by Tony Lee    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 7/7/2014 10:09:16 PM     Post Reply
House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) reportedly told President Barack Obama that there would be a good chance of passing a comprehensive amnesty bill in the next Congress, which the GOP may control. On June 24, when Boehner told Obama there would not be a vote on amnesty legislation this year, he reportedly told him "that he believed there was a good chance a comprehensive bill could pass in the next Congress." According to a National Journal report, Obama, when meeting with pro-amnesty advocates last week to inform them that he would be pressing ahead with executive actions to ease deportations,

Leaked Internal DHS Report Admits
Lack of Deportation Significant
Factor in Border Crisis
Breitbart Texas, by Brandon Darby    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 7/7/2014 10:02:12 PM     Post Reply
HOUSTON, Texas— A leaked internal Department of Homeland Security (DHS) report from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) indicates that recent public assertions made by the Administration were at best half-truths regarding the deportations and motivations of the waves of minors illegally entering the United States. The leaked report´s release date is identified as June 3, 2014. The internal report was leaked to Breitbart Texas by a trusted law enforcement source in DHS who wishes to remain unidentified. The report, identified as “De-Classified” and “Law Enforcement Sensitive,” reveals the fact that only 0.1 percent of the Central American minors illegally entering

Los Angeles to Stop Honoring Federal
Immigration Detainer Requests
Breitbart California, by Daniel Nussbaum    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 7/7/2014 9:57:06 PM     Post Reply
The city of Los Angeles has joined Orange County, Riverside County, and other cities nationwide in ending the practice of holding illegal immigrant inmates past their scheduled release dates, characterizing the practice as "unconstitutional" under a recent federal court ruling. L.A. Mayor Eric Garcetti and police Chief Charlie Beck announced the decision in a joint statement released Monday, according to NBC News. "Until this area of the law is further clarified by the courts, effective immediately the Los Angeles Police Department will no longer honor immigration detainer requests submitted by Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE)," the statement read.

The head of the International Union of Muslim Scholars (IUMS), a Muslim Brotherhood-affiliated group, called upon fellow Islamists and Arabs to declare holy war against Israel “for the sake of Palestine.” According to a translation provided by the Center for Security Policy: Dr. Ali Al-Qaradaghi – the Secretary General of the International Union of Muslim Scholars – called on the Islamic and Arab peoples to rise up in all parts of the world for the sake of Palestine and Jerusalem since it is the central issue of the nation, and therefore pressure must be placed on the governments and institutions to carry

Jason Chaffetz: Mitt
Romney will run —and win
Politico, by Nick Gass    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 7/7/2014 9:43:49 PM     Post Reply
At least one House Republican thinks Mitt Romney will make another run for the White House in 2016 — and this time, he says the 2012 runner-up will emerge victorious. “I think he actually is gonna run for president. He probably doesn’t want me to say that,” Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) told host Chris Matthews on MSNBC’s “Hardball” on Monday. Chaffetz also backed the former Massachusetts governor early in the GOP nomination process for 2012. “A hundred times he says he’s not, but Mitt Romney has always accomplished what he’s set out to do. I think he’s proven right on

Obama: migrant children must go

The White House on Monday insisted most of the thousands of unaccompanied minors flooding across the border will be deported. The firm position came as President Obama was set to travel to Texas, the center of a growing firestorm over the nation’s inability to prevent illegal immigrants from entering the country. Obama is set to hold fundraisers in Dallas and Austin during the two-day trip, but he has no plans to visit the border, where officials have struggled for months to contain a wave of minors seeking refuge in the United States. The president has come under criticism from members of both

   

 



 
US “Vetted Moderate” Free Syrian
Army Brigades Surrender Weapons,
Pledge Allegiance to Islamic State
PJ Media, by Patrick Poole    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 7/7/2014 9:32:40 PM     Post Reply
The heart of the Obama Administration’s policy to overthrow Assad in Syria has been the Free Syrian Army (FSA), which has been provided by U.S. taxpayer-financed weapons training, small arms, and most recently, TOW anti-tank missiles. This has been done under the pretense that the State Department has carefully selected the FSA as “vetted moderates”, ensuring that those weapons wouldn’t end up in the hands of Al-Qaeda-affiliated groups or the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS). Many, including myself, have scoffed at this policy since the State Department has a poor track record in recent decades of identifying “vetted moderates”, expressing

Obama Skips Border Visit to

President Barack Obama visits Texas later this week. As will also be the case when he visits Colorado this week, local Democrats will run from being photographed with him. Wendy Davis avoided being seen with the president the last time he visited the state. The president is taking some heat for his decision not to visit the Texas-Mexico border while he is in Texas. That border is in chaos, thanks in no small part to Obama’s lax policies. A leaked DHS memo makes it clear that the Obama administration has slowed down deportations, and that policy is driving much of the

Barack Obama doesn´t know

Children from Central America are crossing our southern border by the hundreds, Iraq is a smoldering mess, and it´s hard to say how long it might be until Israel and Palestine declare all out war, but first, some important news on presidential Twitter protocol. When asked about who composes or approves tweets sent from the President´s @BarackObama account, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest pointed out that "The @BarackObama twitter handle is maintained by OFA," which is Organizing for Action, the political organization that is the "offshoot" of Obama´s campaign machinery, Obama for America. "That is a Twitter handle that is

Obama to immigration groups: I’ll
press my executive power to the limit
spare millions from deportation
Hot Air, by Allahpundit    Original Article

Just making sure that this Major Garrett scoop from late last week doesn’t get lost in the holiday shuffle. Takeaway: Obama’s going big on executive amnesty. Obama told the groups what they had been dying to hear—that he was going to condemn House Republicans for inaction and set the most expansive legal course permissible to beef up border security, slow deportations of noncriminal aliens, and provide legal status to millions of undocumented workers—all by himself… Obama made it clear he would press his executive powers to the limit. He gave quiet credence to recommendations from La Raza and other immigration

Obama won´t look at the illegal
immigration crisis but he´ll

Illegal immigrants continue to pour across the southwestern U.S. border, overwhelming both the border security apparatus and the immigration system. The flood of tens of thousands of people, mostly children, from Central America has reached crisis proportions, with temporary camps opened in military bases to house them as authorities decide how to deal with their cases. Given the high level of emotion surrounding the issue -- and accusations by Republicans that his actions spurred the flood -- you´d think President Obama would want to get a personal view of what´s going on when he travels this week to Texas, epicenter of the

State Dept: Hamas Does Not Play
A Role in Palestinian Govt
Washington Free Beacon, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 7/7/2014 8:58:49 PM     Post Reply
State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki stated Monday that the U.S. government does not believe Hamas plays a role in the Palestinian government. CNN reporter Elise Labott questioned Psaki about the United States’ continued support for the Palestinian unity government, saying, “You’ve seen the comments that are coming out of Hamas. And now that the U.S. has, in effect, kind of accepted the fact that Hamas is now in this unity government, you would think that as leader of this unity government, it would be incumbent on President Abbas to rein in or take — you know, try and maintain some kind
