Congress in dark on counterterror plan
before Obama speech at West Point

Washington Times, by Kelly Riddell

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 6/19/2014 10:03:14 PM

Members of Congress need to pay attention when President Obama delivers a speech: He could be urging support for an initiative they’ve never heard of. During a commencement address to West Point cadets last month, Mr. Obama called on Congress to fund a new $5 billion counterterrorism plan to “train, build capacity and facilitate partner countries on the front lines” of the war on terror. (Snip) The staff for the Senate Armed Services Committee, chaired by Sen. Carl Levin, Michigan Democrat, has yet to be briefed by or receive details from the White House about the new initiative. The committee

Comments:
And this is surprising because?? Until congress starts standing up to him very, very strongly, pushing back and using their power of the purse, he will continue to behave like his a King Obama. With the way Republicans have behaved, sadly I don´t see that happening.

There are no details. Like everything else cooked up in obama´s little mind, the "initiative" is a half-baked pipe dream that sounds good and means nothing. He supports terrorism and the money, if allocated, will go to terrorists.

Trail Of Lost IRS Emails
Might Lead To White House
Investor´s Business Daily, by Editorial    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 6/20/2014 8:56:20 PM     Post Reply
Scandal: One of the seven people, including Lois Lerner who lost emails from the period of Tea Party targeting by the IRS, served as chief of staff to former IRS head Steven Miller. She also made 35 visits to the White House. The funny thing about emails is that they are never orphans. When you send one, there´s always a recipient who has his or her own copy. The "lost" Lois Lerner emails had recipients. How about subpoenas to all of them during the Tea Party targeting period? That should help find what we need to know — or maybe

NBC News has just released a preview of David Gregory’s interview with Rand Paul, set to air on this Sunday’s Meet The Press, in which the Republican senator responds directly to criticism President Barack Obama has received from former Vice President Dick Cheney and others on Iraq. After listening to what Cheney had to say, Paul remarked, “I think the same questions could be asked of those who supported the Iraq War.” In his Wall Street Journal op-ed this week, Cheney, along with his daughter, wrote, “Rarely has a U.S. president been so wrong about so much at the expense of

Obama Admin Put Out a Bid to
Deal With the Illegal Aliens Now
Flooding the Border…Back in January
PJ Media, by Bryan Preston    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 6/20/2014 8:11:41 PM     Post Reply
The flood of illegal aliens, including thousands under the age of 18, at the border has gotten major media coverage in the past couple of weeks. The Obama administration acts as if it was caught off-guard by the massive influx of Central Americans who have traveled across Mexico to get into the United States. But it wasn’t surprised at all. A recently discovered government request for “escort services for unaccompanied alien children” dating back to January is raising questions about whether the government was planning for a surge of illegal immigrants this year as amnesty talks heated up in the United States.

White House Calls IRS Investigation
A ´Conspiracy Theory´
Breitbart TV, by Pam Key    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 6/20/2014 8:01:43 PM     Post Reply
Friday at the daily briefing, White House press secretary Josh Earnest repeatedly dismissed concerns over Internal Revenue Service claims that two years of Lois Lerner´s emails are lost forever as "conspiracy theories." "Turns out that there have been 13 months of multiple congressional investigations, including 14 congressional hearings, 30 interviews with IRS employees, 50 written congressional requests, and 750,000 pages of documents, and all of that has done nothing to substantiate false Republican claims of a broader political conspiracy," Earnest said. "So I don’t know if you’re floating another conspiracy or if this is a request from

Obama: ‘We gave Iraq the chance

President Obama hopes Iraq’s Shia-led government can find a way to be more inclusive of its Sunni minority, but if it can’t come to a reconciliation with its multiple factions, then he says no amount of U.S. military assistance will help. “We gave Iraq the chance to have an inclusive democracy,” Mr. Obama said in an interview with CNN on Friday. The message for Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki also comes shortly after the Shiite leader was chided by Grand Ayatollah Ali al-Sistani in the holy city of Najaf, south of Baghdad. Mr. Obama’s comments come as 300 military advisers make their

White House to give more than $250 MILLION

as its response to overwhelming surge in

The White House announced $254.6 million in new aid for Central American countries today. The money will go toward returning unaccompanied minors who travel to the U.S. illegally to their families and fostering youth centered programs in their home countries, the White House said this afternoon. The assistance to the governments of El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras announced today is in addition to the $130 million in aid the U.S. already provides those countries in economic assistance. The U.S. has also decided to begin detaining families at the border instead of giving them court dates and releasing them. The new

Muslim Stereotypes In FX´s ´Tyrant´

The Council on American-Islamic Relations wants television reviewers to address what the group sees as inflammatory stereotypes in the new FX drama Tyrant. The series, set to debut June 24, concerns a politically connected Arab-American (Adam Rayner) drawn back into his native land´s power struggle after 20 years in the U.S. His father is the dictator of a fictional Middle Eastern nation, and the man´s family deals with those ties in a variety of ways. CAIR has issues with the very first episode of the series. In the pilot of FX´s ´Tyrant,´ Arab Muslim culture is devoid of any redeeming qualities and is

Adam Baldwin could have joined TNT’s The Last Ship to collaborate with producer Michael Bay, engage in classic action hero banter or relish the latest doomsday scenario. What sealed the deal for the Firefly and Chuck alum was spending time with members of the U.S. Navy. “Any chance I get to work in military-based activities ... I jump at,” Baldwin says. The Last Ship, partially filmed at the 32nd Street naval base in San Diego, follows the USS Nathan James as it searches for a cure to a virus which wiped out most of the earth’s population.

Data About Flood of Illegals

White House officials won’t say how many of the illegal immigrants now flooding up from Central America have been given a courtroom date to ask for green cards. “I will take a look and see if those numbers are available,” White House Josh Earnest told frustrated reporters at the Friday White House press conference. Earnest’s evasion came after multiple questions from Fox News’ Ed Henry and NBC’s Jim Avila. “We will get back to you with respect to the precise numbers,” Alejandro Mayorkas, the deputy secretary of Homeland Security, told reporters during a Friday phone conference with reporters. Mayorkas is in charge of the

The New York Times bestseller list hasn´t waited a millisecond to put Hillary Clinton´s book atop its influential chart after just a week of sales, but has totally ignored another top-10 hardcover from noted conservative and critic of President Obama, Dinesh D´Souza. His new book, on sale for three weeks, isn’t just absent from the top 10 lists already set for the next two Sundays, but totally missing from the list of the nation’s top 25 nonfiction hardcovers despite having sales higher than 13 on the latest Times chart. According to sales reports provided to Secrets, D´Souza´s new book America: Imagine a

Las Vegas hotel magnate and prominent GOP donor Sheldon Adelson believes all of the country´s illegal immigrants should be put on a path to citizenship and given driver´s licenses and bank accounts while on that path. A post-election poll showed that former House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) was ousted because of his support for amnesty legislation, but Adelson said he hoped that would not derail it. "Let’s start by instituting a process in which all undocumented immigrants receive permits to legally work here," he wrote at Politico, even as the country faces a crisis with illegal immigrant children flooding

Criticism of President Obama´s foreign policy is roiling around the Capitol, as devastation and terror quickly creep through Iraq and House Republicans prepare for yet another investigation of the 2012 attack that killed four Americans in Libya. But for all their highly charged rhetoric aimed at the administration, Republicans have one point of praise: Obama appears to be building on lessons learned in Benghazi in working to keep Americans in Iraq secure. "What I see is a learning from Benghazi," Sen. Lindsey Graham told National Journal this week, saying that the administration is "absolutely" doing a better job protecting Americans there

It has become a daily frightening occurrence, hearing politicians, commentators, pundits, and stunned Americans say, “That´s outrageous!” “He can´t do that!” “No way!” “It´s against federal law!” “They have no legal authority to force us to do that!” These comments are in response to the daily unprecedented out-of-control tyranny handed down by Obama and his operatives. We are talking arrogance with a capital A coming out of the Obama administration. For example: the GOP was moving too slow in caving to Obama´s amnesty scheme, so Obama said, Heck with it, I´ll bypass everyone and make it happen. Obama sent a

WASHINGTON -- The commissioner of the Internal Revenue Service refused to apologize to Congress for losing e-mails related to its targeting of conservative groups, saying it´s still attempting to recover the data and it´s too soon to know how many e-mails are missing. "I don´t think an apology is owed," Commissioner John Koskinen told the House Ways and Means Committee. "Every e-mail has been preserved that we have." In his most contentious hearing since becoming commissioner six months ago, Koskinen testified about efforts the IRS has made to recover e-mails that were lost when Lois Lerner´s computer hard drive crashed

At a time when debate is swirling over the assertion that 97 percent of scientists endorse man-made global warming, Secretary of State John Kerry – a frequent citer of the 97 percent figure – in a speech Wednesday nudged the figure up to “at least 98, 99 percent.” “When it comes to climate change, when it comes to food security, we are literally facing a moment of adversity – perhaps even dire necessity,” Kerry said at a State Department food security award ceremony. “It’s hard to convince people – hard to convince people of a challenge that isn’t immediately tangible

According to the Daily Beast, O´Reilly told the audience, “I’m not Rush Limbaugh or Al Franken, where everything has to fit into my worldview… I’m a fact-based guy. A lot of people don’t understand that.” O´Reilly made his remarks about being a "fact-based guy" days after he tried to convince his viewers that House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) did not lose his primary race last week to Dave Brat because of the amnesty issue.

Hillary Clinton — the woman assumed to be the next Democratic Party presidential nominee and quite possibly the next president — is evidently a big snooze. According to Mediate, her interviews to promote her book on CNN and Fox had underwhelming numbers. In the case of Greta Van Susteren’s show, she sent people fleeing midway. More importantly, her book itself is a sales disappointment and, I would wager, even more disappointing if you could ascertain how many who did buy it read actually past page 15. I wouldn’t be surprised if it was in single digits. No, I haven’t read it

President Obama´s approval rating has dropped to 41 percent, a majority of Americans disapprove of his handling of foreign policy issues, he has lost support from the Hispanic community and Americans actually think his administration is less competent than the Bush White House post-Hurricane Katrina, according to a new survey from the Wall Street Journal and NBC News. In short, the poll is nothing but bad news for the president.

President Obama told his Mexican counterpart in a phone call Thursday that immigrants crossing into the U.S. illegally won’t qualify for legalized status or deferred deportation, including children. The White House said Mr. Obama and Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto discussed “a regional strategy” to address the surge of unaccompanied children coming from Central America, through Mexico, to the U.S. With thousands of children trying to enter the U.S. illegally in recent months, Vice President Joseph R.

Former Montana Gov. Brian Schweitzer apparently doesn’t think Southern men are manly. Following Virginia Rep.

The U.S. is leading by example in promoting lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered (LGBT) rights at home and around the world, Secretary of State John Kerry said Thursday. He said the federal government recognizes same-sex marriages of foreign diplomats stationed in the U.S., and it expects all other countries to do the same in their treatment of U.S. personnel deployed abroad. “Let me be clear: We oppose any effort by any country to deny visas for spouses of American staff,” he said. “It’s discriminatory, it’s unacceptable, it has no place in the 21st century.”
