House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte is demanding answers from the Department of Homeland Security about the tens of thousands of undocumented unaccompanied minors and family units illegally crossing America’s southern border. “I am formally requesting information needed by the Committee in carrying out its oversight responsibilities regarding the unprecedented influx of unaccompanied alien minors and alien minors accompanied by adults seeking to enter the U.S. illegally along our southern border ant the Department of Homeland Security’s response to this immigration and national security crisis,” Goodlatte wrote in a letter to DHS Sec. Jeh Johnson Thursday. According to Goodlatte — who

Comments:
Isn´t this rich. Is he still "ready to move now" on amnesty as he said the first of this week?? He said that as this massive flood of illegals pours in. Next week the Judiciary Committee is holding an oversight hearing on the situation. Amazing. This has been going on for weeks and they will hold a worthless hearing next week?? I don´t even know what to say anymore.

FLOTUS: Amnesty President
Obama´s ´Top´ Priority
Breitbart´s Big Government, by Tony Lee    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 6/20/2014 10:35:06 AM     Post Reply
On Wednesday, First Lady Michelle Obama repeated what her husband has said many times – amnesty legislation is his top legislative priority. "Today, here in Washington, folks are still debating whether or not to fix our immigration system, even though just about everyone agrees that it is broken," she said at a naturalization ceremony. "I want you all to know that my husband has made this his top legislative priority because, at the end of the day, this fight isn´t just about principles; it´s about real people." Last year, President Barack Obama emphasized that amnesty legislation was his top legislative priority, and

IRS commissioner won´t

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

It´s a brave nude world. Rihanna and Miley push the limits on showing celebrity skin, but now real people are getting into the act, baring all Adam-and-Eve-style on television, with only blurry digital fig leaves preventing a full Monty. When survivalist series Naked and Afraid debuted on Discovery Channel last year, the series raised eyebrows and intrigued viewers as the highest-rated series premiere in the network´s history. And you know what that means: Copycats and clones were quickly ordered up. Sunday, Discovery is offering a sneak peek of a new Naked season (10 ET/PT ) that features a single man and woman who´ve never

An audio clip surfaced this morning of a radio interview in which Rep. Charlie Rangel (D-NY) likened the "cult-type of thinking" of terror organization Hamas to the Tea Party. The longtime Democratic lawmaker was appearing on a radio program Thursday to discuss the recent kidnapping of three teenagers by Palestinian militants in the West Bank, including a 16-year-old Israeli-American. “These kids, are being held by people that have no moral standards. The question is how do we handle these types of people who don’t mind dying. You have to admit that that´s complex to have someone to think that by

So you get screaming headlines such as these: (Snip) What is not being reported, is that multiple judges have found that the alleged criminal conduct was not in fact criminal even if the factual allegations were true.

Congress in dark on counterterror plan

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 person responsible for electing Dave Brat and defeating Eric Cantor is...Dave Brat.

A Hillary Clinton donor who serves as dean of the University of Arkansas libraries has banned the Washington Free Beacon from the school’s special collections archives, after the news outlet published revealing stories about Hillary Clinton based on documents available at the university library. The ban came days after the Free Beacon ran a story about Clinton’s 1975 defense of a child rapist that drew from audio recordings available at the University of Arkansas library’s special collections archives. However, the ban was not mentioned in a June 16 email to this reporter from Steve Voorhies, manager of media relations at the university. “Congratulations

Tumbling Down: Obama´s

Can anything slow the steady and persistent rise in President Obama´s disapproval rating? It doesn´t seem that way, especially as scandals involving the Department of Veterans Affairs, Internal Revenue Service and the White House´s decision to swap Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, who may have deserted his post in Afghanistan in 2009, continue to dog the Obama administration and raise questions about whether the president is a competent leader. In fact, according to the latest polling data from Gallup, President Obama´s disapproval rating has increased to 55 percent, up from its previous posting of 54 percent.

WASHINGTON – A House committee report maintains that the rhetoric used by President Obama in disparaging the nation’s campaign finance system impelled the Internal Revenue Service to undertake an extensive review of the tax status of conservative groups. The report compiled by the staff of the House Oversight & Government Reform Committee, “How Politics Led the IRS to Target Conservative Tax-Exempt Applicants for their Political Beliefs,” claims the president’s use of the “bully pulpit” led the IRS to target conservative groups seeking tax-exempt status, leading to often lengthy delays in the process. According to the report, Obama’s public blistering of the U.S.

Arizona Republican Rep. Dave Schweikert is calling for thousands of troops to be sent to states bordering Mexico to deal with the large influx of undocumented immigrants. “The drastic increase of Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC) being apprehended and detained by federal agents along our southwestern border is causing resources to be diverted away from other Department of Homeland Security (DHS) missions,” Schweikert said Tuesday. “This diversion is stretching the Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) thin and causing a troubling impact on our national security.” “That is unacceptable,” he added.

WASHINGTON -- The U.S. Patent Office ruled Wednesday that the Washington Redskins nickname is "disparaging of Native Americans" and that the team´s federal trademarks for the name must be canceled. The 2-1 ruling comes after a campaign to change the name has gained momentum over the past year. The team doesn´t immediately lose trademark protection and is allowed to retain it during an appeal. Redskins owner Daniel Snyder has refused to change the team´s name, citing tradition, but there has been growing pressure including statements in recent months from President Barack Obama, lawmakers of both parties and civil rights groups.

Redskins lose trademark, Harry Reid

In what some see as the first step to forcing the Washington Redskins football team to change their name, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office on Wednesday cancelled six federal trademarks of the team name because it´s “disparaging” to Native Americans. “Petitioners have shown by a preponderance of the evidence that a substantial composite of Native Americans found the term REDSKINS to be disparaging,” said the decision. Fans, however, won’t see any immediate change — even if Daniel Snyder’s team eventually loses in court. That’s because all the order will do is eliminate the trademark the team has on merchandise. The Redskins are expected to appeal.

WASHINGTON — The White House said Wednesday it has found no emails between any person in the executive office of the president and a top Internal Revenue Service official who has been connected to the improper scrutiny of political groups. White House spokesman Jay Carney said the White House searched for all communications between the former IRS official, Lois Lerner, and executive office personnel. "We found zero emails," he said. He said the search discovered three emails in which a third party emailed both Lerner and executive office staff. He said one was spam and two others were from a person seeking

Washington -- I´ll let you know what´s going on, but I don´t need new congressional authority to act, President Barack Obama told congressional leaders Wednesday about his upcoming decision on possible military intervention in Iraq. The White House meeting sounded more like a listening session for the top Republicans and Democrats in the House and Senate about options for helping Iraq´s embattled Shiite government halt the lightning advance of Sunni Islamist fighters toward Baghdad that Obama is considering. According to a White House statement, Obama went over U.S. efforts to "strengthen the capacity of Iraq´s security forces to confront the threat" from

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

White House Press Secretary Jay Carney explained that President Obama is fully engaged in the situation in Iraq – even though he spent last weekend golfing. Carney was asked about former Vice President Dick Cheney’s op-ed in The Wall Street Journal criticizing the President for golfing instead of paying attention to world affairs. “I think it’s pretty clear that this President has been paying close attention to this and has been engaging regularly with his national security team,” Carney said, praising Obama for deliberating carefully about the use of force in Iraq.

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

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.

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. The survey would appear to be so bad, in fact, that NBC News´ Chuck Todd said Tuesday that the poll basically means the public has declared the Obama presidency to be

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

First Lady Michelle Obama reminded attendees of a naturalization ceremony Wednesday that the Founding Fathers weren’t born in America. The ceremony for 50 new U.S. citizens was held at the National Archives in Washington, D.C. “It’s amazing that just a few feet from here where I’m standing are the signatures of the 56 Founders who put their names on a Declaration that changed the course of history,” she said during her speech, referring to the Declaration of Independence. “And like the 50 of you, none of them were born American – they became American.” Obama pointed out that the Founding Fathers pledged their
