´We hear you’ is
just pious codswallop

Telegraph [UK], by Janet Daley

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 6/1/2014 4:42:57 AM

The people of Britain have spoken and our political life will now have to be conducted on quite different terms, right? Wrong. Here’s another statement that seems to have passed for a truism over the past week which is equally wrong: large swathes of the populations of Europe have shouted a warning to their governments, and thus shaken the confidence of the whole European Union edifice. [Snip] When I say that all of these statements are false, I do not mean to detract from the thunderous importance of recent electoral events. I am not one of those delusional commentators who

Continuation of Daley´s acute perceptions of the recent UKIP "earthquake."

FTA "Is it just me or does the word “bossy” sound just a little bit patronising and trivial – especially given that what we are talking about here is the withdrawal of our right as a democratic polity to have power over own criminal justice system and our national borders?"
This is the same as the US 1.Holder´s disregard for enforcing the law and 2. Obama´s wanton disregard for enforcing immigration law - even going so far as to release convicted criminal ILLEGALS to terrorize Americans?
As Janet asks, " What happens when people realize their vote doesn´t count?"
What happens when society reaches the Tipping Point?
Too many LIES and too few consequences for " Elite."
Benghazi, Fast and Furious and IRS weaponization against Conservatives to steal an election - enough!

Obama supports Texas
governor on US border fixes
BBC News [UK], by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: Attercliffe- 7/9/2014 9:42:35 PM     Post Reply
US President Barack Obama has sided with Republican Texas Governor Rick Perry on recommendations for improving security on the US-Mexico border. While visiting the state,Mr Obama said he had no "philosophical objection" to increasing the number of border patrol agents and repositioning them. But Mr Obama said the such action was held up by Congress´ delay in approving his request for extra funding. The White House asked for $3.7bn (£2.2bn) in extra funding on Tuesday. "Congress has the capacity to work with all parties concerned to directly address this situation," Mr Obama told reporters.

Imagine this: A siren blares, you are holding your child’s hand, you know in barely 15 seconds a Qassam rocket will land only yards away. [Snip] Without thinking, an Israeli mother or father will shield their child. In those 15 seconds--where the sound of the siren may well be the last thing you hear on this Earth--children are shielded by their parents. A human shield. A shield of love. Now try to comprehend this. In Gaza, children are crammed into targeted buildings. Sometimes forced to wait on rooftops, children are then ejected from these buildings, forced to ‘escort’ targeted militants--with

Fifteen seconds. That’s roughly about the time it takes to tie your shoelaces or send a text message. Fifteen seconds is also the amount of time I had this morning to put on my clothes, get my fiancé and help our next-door neighbour (an elderly Holocaust survivor) to a bomb shelter, after Palestinian Hamas terrorists fired a rocket at Tel Aviv. As I write this, my country Israel is under a barrage of rocket fire from Palestinian terrorists in Gaza. Hundreds of rockets have been fired into the heart of Israel in the past few days now, including now also

The number of patients waiting for key tests which can diagnose cancer has reached a six-year high, with a doubling in waits for some scans in the last month, official figures show. Latest monthly statistics show more than 18,000 patients waited six weeks or more for 15 diagnostic tests, including MRI and CT scans, and hearing and cardiac tests. The figure has almost trebled over the last year and is the highest it has been for six years. The statistics show that the numbers waiting at least six weeks for CT scans have doubled in just one month, from 859

Former New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin was sentenced to 10 years in federal prison Wednesday. [Snip] Nagin is set to report to prison on Sept. 8. The judge has recommended a minimum security federal detention center in Oakdale, a city in central Louisiana. U.S. District Judge Ginger Berrigan handed down the sentence before a packed courtroom five months after a jury convicted Nagin on 20 of 21 counts of bribery, wire fraud, tax evasion and other charges.

Prosecutors in Germany have searched the home of a defence ministry employee suspected of spying, in the second such case in a week. Residential and office areas were searched in Berlin on Wednesday morning, the federal prosecutor in Karlsruhe said. An intelligence agency employee was arrested this month for passing secret documents to US intelligence. The US promised on Monday to work to resolve the problem. There were no reports of a new arrest on Wednesday. The US has not denied allegations that the intelligence agency employee arrested earlier this month was passing secret documents to the US National Security

This is the shocking moment ISIS militants took sledgehammers to Iraqi tombs - smashing them to pieces. The rebels, who are members of the Islamic State terror group, were filmed attacking centuries-old graves in the north-west city of Mosul in Ninevah province. Donning balaclavas and black coats, they swung sledgehammers into the tombs, causing pieces of dust and stone to fly through the air. One of the devastated tombstones belonged to the Prophet Jonah (Younis in Arabic) and was revered by Muslims and Christians alike, according to Iraqi authorities. The Prophet, whom the Hebrew Bible´s Book of Jonah is written on, is best

The slaughter of a British family in the Alps took an extraordinary twist yesterday when police revealed that one of the victims had a secret former husband who died in the US on the very same day--possibly killed by a poisoned dart. [Snip] But police yesterday revealed that Iqbal had a “secret ex-husband” who died in mysterious circumstances in Natchez, Mississippi, on the day the family were gunned down in their car while on holiday in the Alps in September 2012.

The BBC has investigated, and found inaccurate, numerous graphic images which are being shared on social media to show how people in Gaza have been affected by the renewed tensions with Israel. [Snip] Over the past week the hashtag #GazaUnderAttack has been used hundreds of thousands of times to distribute pictures claiming to show the effects of the Israeli airstrikes on Gaza’s population. Some of the images are of the current situation in Gaza, but a #BBCtrending analysis has found that many images date as far back as 2009 and others are from conflicts in Syria and Iraq.

Gaza wakes up to the devastation

The Israeli army has launched its biggest offensive in nearly two years on the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip, killing more than 20 Palestinians in airstrikes on 160 sites. Army spokesman Lt. Col. Peter Lerner says warplanes early Wednesday attacked sites including Hamas command centers and rocket launchers. The offensive has set off the heaviest fighting between Israel and the Islamic militant group Hamas since an eight-day battle in November 2012. Militants unleashed rocket salvos deep into Israeli territory, and Israel mobilized thousands of forces along the Gaza border for a possible ground invasion into the Palestinian territory.

Three loud explosions rocked Jerusalem on Tuesday night following a day of airstrikes in the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip by Israeli forces. Air sirens sounded in the Israeli capital at 9pm local time, shortly followed by four bright flashes lighting the sky southwest of the city. [Snip] The Israeli military launched what could be a long-term offensive earlier in the day, striking more than 100 sites and mobilising troops for a possible ground invasion aimed at stopping a heavy barrage of rocket attacks against Israel.

White House requests $3.7 billion in
emergency funds for border crisis

The White House on Tuesday formally requested $3.7 billion in emergency funding from Congress to deal with an influx of Central American minors along the southern border. But the proposal was quickly met with broad skepticism among Republican lawmakers, who were doubtful that the package would be approved quickly — if at all. Administration officials said the request is part of a comprehensive strategy aimed at building more detention centers, adding immigration judges, and beefing up border patrols and air surveillance. President Obama has said he hopes such steps will both speed deportations and discourage adults from sending children on

Sarah Palin on Tuesday joined a growing chorus of Republicans calling for the impeachment of President Obama, writing in a Breitbart op-ed that the influx of young illegal immigrants over the southern border "is the last straw that makes the battered wife say, ´no mas.´ " Mixed/careless metaphors aside, this is nothing but bad news for Republicans — especially four months until the 2014 election. Palin is hardly the first GOP politician to raise the issue of impeachment over the past couple years. Others include Sens. James Inhofe (R-Okla.), Tom Coburn (R-Okla.) and Tim Scott (R-S.C.), Reps. Blake Farenthold (R-Tex.),

Starting next week, House Republicans will launch a highly visible—and likely tumultuous—three-week process of bringing to the floor legislation to authorize their promised lawsuit against President Obama over his use of executive actions. "In theory, you could report out a resolution tomorrow and vote on it," said a House GOP aide on Tuesday. "But that is not the approach [the leaders] want to take." Rather, the aim is to display—if not actually engage in—a more deliberative process, even if amid controversy. This drawn-out script builds toward a potentially dramatic floor vote held just days, or even hours, before the House adjourns on

Despite his continuous denials, some still believe that Mitt Romney will run for president in 2016. Speaking to MSNBC on Monday, Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, went one step further saying that the former Massachusetts governor will be occupying the White House after the next presidential election. “I think he actually is going to run for president. He probably doesn’t want me to say that. A hundred times he says he’s not, but Mitt Romney has always accomplished what he has set out to do,”

Enough is enough of the years of abuse from this president. His unsecured border crisis is the last straw that makes the battered wife say, “no mas.” Without borders, there is no nation. Obama knows this. Opening our borders to a flood of illegal immigrants is deliberate. This is his fundamental transformation of America. It’s the only promise he has kept. Discrediting the price paid for America’s exceptionalism over our history, he’s given false hope and taxpayer’s change to millions of foreign nationals who want to sneak into our country illegally. Because of Obama’s purposeful dereliction of duty an untold

WASHINGTON — Congressional Democrats said Tuesday that they had developed legislation to override the Supreme Court decision on contraceptives. The bill would ensure that women have access to coverage for birth control even if they work for businesses that have religious objections. The bill, developed in consultation with the Obama administration, would require for-profit corporations like Hobby Lobby Stores to provide and pay for contraceptive coverage, along with other preventive services, under the Affordable Care Act. The measure could be on the Senate floor as early as next week, Senate Democrats said. “Your health care decisions are not your boss’s

World Net Daily reported, via Free Republic: The retail giant Costco Wholesale has issued an order to remove all copies of Dinesh D’Souza’s bestselling book, “America: Imagine the World Without Her,” from the shelves of its stores nationwide, WND has confirmed. The book, in this midterm election year, is a strong rebuttal of the progressive ideology behind President Obama’s policies, which have been supported by Costco co-founder and director Jim Sinegal, a major Democrat donor and a speaker at the 2012 Democratic National Convention that nominated the president. A Washington Post political reporter has noted Obama’s “romance” with the nation’s

Former secretary of state Hillary Clinton told the German magazine Der Spiegel on Tuesday that she and her husband Bill were ´deeply in debt´ when they left the White House, and blamed ´relentless persecution´ by Republicans for her legal bills after his presidency. The claim has added fuel to the fire Clinton herself touched off last month when she claimed they were ´dead broke´ after their time in the White House. The former first lady earns $200,000 or more every time she makes a public speech. The former president has earned a reported $104 million in speaking fees since he

Mr. D’Souza said roughly 3,600 copies of his newest release has sold at Costco already, but he has no idea why the chain refuses to sell more. “We’re in the process of finding out what’s happening,” he told WND. “I look forward to getting to the bottom of this and continuing the strong relationship my publisher and I have always had with Costco and their millions

Fate hasn´t been kind to Hillary Clinton, at least not in its most recent phase. In 2008, when the plate was set for the national Democrats, she lost the nomination to Barack Obama, of scant years and no gravitas, who soared out of nowhere to wrench destiny from her on the unspecified promise of "change." Now, "change" has come, and people don´t like it. Iraq changed from a safe, stable ally (just ask Obama) to a terrorist haven, one of the reasons why, though no fellow Democrats seem likely to edge her, her chances of winning the White House seem dim.
