´The grassroots is in revolt´: Crushing
defeat of Eric Cantor by Tea Party kills
Obama´s hopes of immigration reform
and throws GOP leadership into chaos

Daily Mail [UK], by David Martosko, Francesca Chambers

President Barack Obama´s hope of any movement on immigration reform in Congress died Tuesday night when House Majority Leader Eric Cantor lost his Republican primary election. [Snip] While political commentators and Democratic Party insiders have crowed that the populist right-wing tea party movement was on its last legs, the rumors of its death now appear to be greatly exaggerated. Not so, however, for the prospects of passing an immigration reform measure into law. Virginia voters dug a grave for the idea on Tuesday night and kicked Democrats into it. Cantor´s appetite to inherit the gavel from House Speaker John Boehner was an

According to what I have read this morning, the National Tea Parties ignored him and he only received around $4000 from local Tea Parties. It isn´t going to do him any good to be tied to the Tea Party. He needs to just be a Conservative willing to represent all the people.

I´m sure the meeting with the rino leadership went something like the old Wizard Of Id cartoon... A guard runs into the throne room and yells "The peasants are revolting!"
To which the king replied, "They certainly are."

Y2K bug triggers army conscription

A year 2000-related bug has caused the US military to send more than 14,000 letters of conscription to men who were all born in the 1800s and died decades ago. Shocked residents of Pennsylvania began receiving letters ordering their great grandparents to register for the US military draft by pain of “fine and imprisonment.” [Snip] Y2K-like bug. The US Selective Service System, which sent the letters in error, automatically handles the drafting of US citizens and other US residents that are applicable for conscription. The cause of the error was narrowed down to a Y2K-like bug in the Pennsylvania department

Israeli leader Netanyahu vows to

cease military campaign in Gaza as
Palestinian death toll rises above 100
Daily Mail [UK], by John Hall, Stephanie Linning    Original Article
Posted By: Attercliffe- 7/12/2014 1:15:06 AM     Post Reply
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Friday that he would press forward with his country´s military offensive In the Gaza Strip, telling reporters that there was ´still more to go´ in the conflict that has already claimed more than 100 lives. He defended the attacks by Israeli forces in the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip, saying that they are part of a determined effort to halt rocket fire by Palestinian militants. His comments come amid growing pressure from a number of international leaders to cease the military campaign - which has seen Israel attack more than 1,000 targets since Tuesday.

Amnesty International has revealed its pro-immigration prejudice by criticising member states of the European Union for spending hundreds of millions of euros trying to build effective border control. In a report published this week, Amnesty International complains that, "EU migration policies and border control practices are preventing refugees from accessing asylum in the EU." The report insists EU member states must "start putting people before borders." The organisation also criticises the policy by which "the EU and member states are also cooperating with and funding neighbouring countries, such as Turkey, Morocco and Libya, to create a buffer zone around the

Ask any Nato commander in Afghanistan what is the biggest hurdle to defeating the Taliban insurgency, and there is only ever one answer: the safe havens in Pakistan from where militants can launch strikes in safety. [Snip] Last month Pakistan acted, launching hundreds of airstrikes on targets in North Waziristan, home to the Haqqani network – considered the most deadly of Afghanistan´s insurgent groups – as well as Pakistani terrorists intent on bringing down the government in Islamabad, sectarian outfits and groups with an eye on Kashmir. Ground troops have followed, sweeping through the area. The question is: will it work?

The vast majority of children apprehended crossing the U.S. - Mexico border end up staying in the country, a new study has revealed. Only 3,525 the nearly 47,000 juveniles entering the U.S. illegally were deported during fiscal year 2013 by immigration judges, researchers found--and an additional 888 were permitted to voluntarily return home. [Snip] President Barack Obama has ordered them held in shelters to provide basic human necessities while their situations are sorted out, and has insisted they will not be allowed to stay. But they are staying, and in far greater numbers than ever before. ‘They´re here, and they´re

House Oversight and Government Reform Committee chair Rep. Darrell Issa sent his latest subpoena to the Obama administration on Friday, demanding testimony from the director of a controversial White House office reportedly tasked with political work on taxpayers´ dime. David Simas, the director of the White House Office of Political Strategy and Outreach, has refused to testify voluntarily but will be required to answer questions in a July 16 hearing on Capitol Hill. President Barack Obama closed the White House Office of Political Affairs in 2011, just days before an Office of Special Counsel report warned that it risked ´transforming

Iraqi Kurds have taken over two oil fields, Iraq´s oil ministry says, amid a growing dispute with the government in Baghdad. Kurdish peshmerga forces seized control of production facilities at Bai Hassan and the Kirkuk oil fields, in the north of Iraq, on Friday, the ministry adds. Kurdish MPs have also withdrawn from Iraq´s central government. They did so after Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki accused the Kurds of harbouring extremists. Kurdish forces have moved into areas of north-western Iraq abandoned by the Iraqi army during the advance of Islamist insurgents led by the Isis (Islamic State in Iraq and

Ghana´s government has said the country has no religious violence, after 200 Ghanaian World Cup fans asked for asylum in Brazil. The fans said they were Muslims fleeing religious conflict, according to Brazilian police. The group are believed to be part of a government-sponsored delegation, mainly comprising supporters of the governing party. Ghana is seen as one of West Africa´s most peaceful and prosperous countries. "The basis for this alleged request is completely false as no religious conflict is taking place in Ghana," said a statement from Deputy Information Minister Felix Kwakye Ofosu.

Israel is only hours away from launching a ground attack on Gaza, Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas has claimed. The Chairman of the Palestine Liberation Organization warned that the Israeli government has already approved a land operation in Gaza, and that the operation is likely to start later today. His claims come as a fresh wave of rocket attacks have hit sites in Israel--including towns in the north of the country that were fired from Lebanon. It is the first time militants in Lebanon have launched missiles following four-days of rocket attacks sent from Gaza. It is not yet known whether

Obama´s ´Cease-Fire´ Offer
Is a Betrayal of Israel
Breitbart National Security, by Joel B. Pollack    Original Article
Posted By: Attercliffe- 7/11/2014 5:24:19 AM     Post Reply
Cease-fire proposals in wars between Israel and its neighbors are predictable: as soon as Israel is winning, the United Nations demands a cease-fire. As Dore Gold ably documents in his Tower of Babble: How the United Nations Has Fueled Global Chaos, cease-fires typically prevent a decisive end to the conflict. They have often guaranteed further war in the long run by providing a temporary calm that allows Israel´s enemies to regroup. President Barack Obama offered Thursday to broker a cease-fire between Israel and the Palestinians--actually, the Hamas terror organization. That is one of the worst ideas, among many contenders, ever

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

Bears, beer and horse heads: What exactly is going on with the leader of the free world? On a single day this week in Denver, President Obama scarfed down pizza and drinks with strangers, shot pool with Colorado’s governor and shook hands with a guy on the street wearing a horse mask. His top staffers are promoting these stops on Twitter with the hashtag #TheBearIsLoose — a term one of Obama’s aides coined in 2008 when the candidate would defy his schedule. More than five years into his presidency, Obama is trying to free himself from the constraints of office,

Thursday at her weekly briefing, House Minority Leader Rep Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) was asked why when she was Speaker of the House she did not move forward on the requests of her members to impeach then-President George W. Bush over the arguments his administration made for entering into war with Iraq in 2003. Pelosi accused Bush of being guilty of impeachable offense saying he "sent us into a war based on a false representation of the treat of weapons of mass destruction."

This is his fundamental transformation of America ... President Obama´s rewarding of lawlessness, including his own, is the foundational problem here ...

She also called not only for the U.S. government to process minors arriving illegally from Central America on a “case-by-case basis" but for the government to “treat the Mexican kids the way they treat the non-contiguous country kids.” “Quite frankly, I would rather they treat the Mexican kids the way they treat the non-contiguous country kids,” Pelosi said at a Capitol Hill press conference on Thursday, claiming that sending these children back to their home countries would be like “sending them back into a

SAN DIEGO - The family that drew national attention when they were rescued at sea off their sailboat, Rebel Heart, in April is finally setting the record straight. Charlotte and Eric Kaufman and their two daughters were about 1,000 miles west of Cabo San Lucas in the Sea of Cortez when 1-year old Lyra became sick. That was when their adventure of a lifetime turned into a nightmare. It began with a fever, then a rash and then Lyra became lethargic.

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
