Sessions Updates Catalogue of
Obama Administration Immigration
Non-Enforcement

Breitbart´s Big Government, by Caroline May

Original Article

Posted By:mikkins2, 5/17/2014 9:21:06 AM

In the wake of hints from Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson that the Obama administration is looking to reduce deportations by making changes to the Secure Communities program, the office of Alabama Republican Sen. Jeff Sessions released an update to their catalog of the Obama administration’s moves “to dismantle immigration enforcement.” The Alabama immigration hawk’s 17-page timeline begins in early 2009 with the administration’s announcement that that it is “not doing raids or audits” of workplaces potentially employing illegal immigrants. The timeline ends this week on May 12, 2014 with an internal ICE document revealing that last year

Comments:
If the Republican Establishment were truly interested in immigration reform they would start by demanding that existing laws be enforced first.

But that would make the Chamber of Commerce and Big Business very unhappy. And we know what happens when the Chamber of Commerce is unhappy. They shut off the money to their favored Establishment cronies.

Got Tea?

Kashkari Campaign Paid Costs of GOP
Officials at Gubernatorial Debate
Breitbart´s Big Government, by Michelle Moons    Original Article

Republican Neel Kashkari´s campaign paid the accommodation costs of supporters who showed up at the May 15 gubernatorial debate between Kashkari and rival Republican Tim Donnelly. During a recent local Republican Central Committee meeting, one Central Committee member announced to the room that the Kashkari campaign would pay for hotel costs, according to a source present. A representative of the Kashkari campaign confirmed that it had paid some accommodation costs, but said that it had done so in response to requests: "Our campaign received and was able to fulfill a few requests from out-of-town supporters who needed lodging after the debate."

Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, wants Congress to ban "the FCC´s latest adventure in ´net neutrality,´ " saying the proposed changes to Internet regulations would damage the industry. "A five-member panel at the FCC should not be dictating how Internet services will be provided to millions of Americans," Cruz said in a Wednesday afternoon statement. "I will be introducing legislation that would remove the claimed authority for the FCC to take such actions, specifically the Commission´s nebulous Sec. 706 authority. More than $1 trillion has already been invested in broadband infrastructure, which has led to an explosion of new content, applications, and

A half year ago, I found myself vociferously defending Karl Rove at a local Republican Club meeting. The guest speaker had gone off on a tangent. He was scheduled to discuss an energy tax measure proposed for the upcoming state ballot Instead, he began to attack Mr. Rove and his presumed GOP Establishment buddies for not having allocated enough money to California campaigns in the 2012 elections. Not that all the money in the world would likely turn the once Golden State from deep blue to any shade of purple. But back to the unexpected criticism aimed of Karl Rove in

A few weeks ago, I noted in this space that the anti-Tea Party Main Street Partnership is openly appealing to conservative paranoia in a high-profile Idaho race. The super PAC, run by former Rep. Steve LaTourette, R-Ohio, ran an ad hinting that the challenger to Republican U.S. Rep. Mike Simpson is being backed by a liberal, pro-Nancy Pelosi group from outside Idaho - namely, the uber-conservative Club for Growth. At the time, I wrote that Main Street might win a couple of races with this dishonest approach – and in fact Simpson will likely win on Tuesday. But to whatever extent this tactic succeeds,

Last week North Carolina House Speaker Thom Tillis escaped a runoff by earning 46 percent of the vote — six points above the threshold — in an eight-way primary race for the right to face down incumbent U.S. Senator Kay Hagan this November (SNIP)If she does, it won’t be the Tea Party’s fault. It will be Tillis’s establishment friends who’ll get the blame. They should learn of the comparative properties of honey as opposed to their vinegary stock in trade.

Anti-incumbent sentiment
strongest in 20 years
American Thinker, by Rick Moran    Original Article

A new Gallup poll shows that congressional incumbents should worry about re-election - at least a little bit. More than 70% in the poll say that incumbents don´t deserve re-election while only 22% say they do. This represents the lowest percentage of voters who believe incumbents should be returned to Washington in more than 20 years. Politico: According to the Gallup survey, only 22 percent of registered voters believe that most members of Congress deserve reelection and 72 percent believe they don’t. If the results hold in November, the “deserve re-election” figure will be the lowest mark since Gallup began tracking the question

Alex Mooney, the Tea Party-backed candidate in the crowded Republican primary in West Virginia´s 2nd Congressional District, easily won his party´s nomination in Tuesday´s election. With 85 percent of the precincts reporting, Mooney leads with 35 percent of the vote. Pharmacist Ken Reed is in second place with 22 percent. Five other candidates split the remainder of the vote. Mooney, former chairman of the Maryland GOP, moved to West Virginia in 2012 in order, he said, "to live in freedom." He promised voters to "fight Obama to preserve it." Several major national Tea Party groups endorsed Mooney, including Tea Party Express, the Senate

Sen. Thad Cochran (R-MS) suggested to National Public Radio (NPR) he would like to bring earmarks back to Congress. “I think earmarks have gotten a bad name,” Cochran told the national radio outlet for a piece it published on the race between Cochran and state Sen. Chris McDaniel for the GOP nomination for the seat. Cochran said if Congress isn’t allow to earmark spending, then federal agencies have more authority over how to spend the money. "For those who are opposed to that [earmarks], [they] are for the federal agencies making the decision [where money is spent],“ Cochran said, adding, “This is

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) said Ben Sasse, who won Nebraska´s GOP Senate nomination on Tuesday, would be a much needed reinforcement for conservatives in the Senate should he win the general election in November. Cruz, who endorsed and campaigned for Sasse along with Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) and former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, said Sasse´s "decisive victory" is a "clear indication that the grassroots are rising up to Make DC Listen" and "rising up to take our country back." Sasse trounced his two opponents, getting nearly 50% of the vote in the primary.

During the 2012 presidential election, Jim Wilson trailed the Mitt Romney campaign for months, handing out campaign posters and directing traffic at events. “I don’t think anyone has as much sweat equity in this sucker as I have,” he told the New York Times. (SNIP) A Public Policy Polling survey from last fall showed that Americans prefer toenail fungus, dog poop, jury duty and witches to Congress.

GOP Suicide Watch

This week, the House Armed Services Committee is poised to set in train a legislative process that could well translate into the suicide of the Republican Party. The committee will consider – and, all other things being equal, may actually adopt – a controversial amendment to be offered by Rep. Mike Coffman of Colorado to the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). It would allow illegal aliens brought here as minors – so-called “Dreamers” – to serve in the U.S. military and, thereby, obtain American citizenship. Should that happen, proponents of a broader amnesty for those here illegally would likely try use the

Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush said he would strive to be like Lyndon Johnson, the Democrat famous for expanding the U.S. welfare state through the "Great Society," if he were elected president. According to the Miami Herald, Bush made those comments Wednesday night in San Antonio, Florida at Saint Leo University, while speaking about education, immigration, and energy policy. Bush did not address Johnson´s Great Society and War on Poverty programs, about which Ronald Reagan once famously quipped, "We had a war on poverty, and poverty won." Instead, he was referencing Johnson´s mastery of the

A State Department official told a Senate hearing on terrorism in Nigeria this morning that “Boko Haram is trying to portray its philosophy as being a Muslim philosophy, and that’s just not accurate.” Senate Foreign Relations Subcommittee on African Affairs Chairman Chris Coons (D-Del.) referenced a hearing that he held two years ago, in which lawmakers learned that Boko Haram was training with Al-Shabaab and al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb in an area the size of Texas. “The hearing that we conducted two years ago could almost literally be repeated today in terms of ongoing structural challenges that have led

In 2011, Peter Gibson, a professor of gastroenterology at Monash University and director of the GI Unit at The Alfred Hospital in Melbourne, Australia, published a study that found gluten, a protein found in grains like wheat, rye, and barley, to cause gastrointestinal distress in patients without celiac disease, an autoimmune disorder unequivocally triggered by gluten. Double-blinded, randomized, and placebo-controlled, the experiment was one of the strongest pieces of evidence to date that non-celiac gluten sensitivity (NCGS), more commonly known as gluten intolerance, is a genuine condition. By extension, the study also lent credibility to the meteoric rise of the gluten-free

First Lady Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move campaign is claiming water made Albert Einstein smart, Muhammad Ali a Heavyweight champion, and Audrey Hepburn stylish. Mrs. Obama is again using hashtags, this time to promote her drink water campaign, and is encouraging individuals to post photos of themselves drinking water on social media. The campaign, which is based on faulty science, is a joint initiative with Mrs. Obama’s anti-obesity group Let’s Move and a Partnership for a Healthy America (PHA).

CONCORD, N.H. — Some residents of a predominantly white New Hampshire town are upset with racist remarks a police commissioner made about President Barack Obama. Resident Jane O´Toole said she overheard Wolfeboro Police Commissioner Robert Copeland use a racial slur in describing Obama. And in an email to her, Copeland, who is white, acknowledged using the N-word in referring to the president and said he will not apologize. "I believe I did use the ´N´ word in reference to the current occupant of the Whitehouse," Copeland said in an excerpt from an email he sent to his fellow police commissioners

When former President George W. Bush was a no-show at the s 9/11 Memorial Museum dedication in New York City, some feared the snub was a political statement or a poke at President Barack Obama. But it turns out the Texan had a prior engagement with more than a dozen of America´s bravest military heroes. He was in Bentonville, Arkansas on Thursday, receiving the Patriot Award, the Congressional Medal of Honor Society´s highest recognition.

WASHINGTON — Frustrated by the “sewer” of modern American political campaigns, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid Wednesday said that he would bring a constitutional amendment to the floor granting Congress the ability to set strict new limits on campaign contributions, warning he will force multiple votes if necessary to pass the measure. “When I came to Congress, when you got money you had to list who you got it from, what their occupation was, address, and phone numbers if you had it.

Leading Republican senators charged Thursday that National Security Adviser Susan Rice’s public account of the Benghazi terror attack has now “absolutely collapsed,” citing inaccuracies in her statements not only on the origin of the attack but the level of security at the U.S. compound. The lawmakers said she is clearly “frustrated” that her story is falling apart, a day after Rice appeared to scoff at a question on whether a congressional select committee probe would reveal new evidence. “Danged if I know,” Rice said in response to the question Wednesday.

President Barack Obama´s top adviser and confidant told a group of global elites on Thursday in Las Vegas, Nevada that House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) has made a commitment to the White House to try to pass amnesty legislation this year.

Ever since she emerged on the US national political scene, the mainstream media and Hollywood have treated Hillary Clinton as if she’s the be all end all of womanhood. That she is the world’s smartest woman. That her ascension to the ultimate seat of power, the presidency of the United States, was nothing less than inevitable. We’re hearing it again now — that Hillary Clinton is a shoo-in for the presidency in 2016. She’s unbeatable. No Democrat stands a chance against her if she decides to run. The Republicans shouldn’t even bother to field a candidate. Of course, they were

WASHINGTON — She was born into the segregated Chicago of the 1960s, when public schools actively resisted integration. But in 1975, the city, under pressure to comply with the landmark Supreme Court decision desegregating public schools, opened a racially integrated high school for high achievers that changed the young woman’s life. Michelle Robinson, a graduate of that integrated school, is now Michelle Obama, the first African-American first lady of the United States. In this season of civil rights anniversaries — in particular the 60th, on Saturday, of the 1954 decision in Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka, Kan. —
