Bush Center Immigration Reform
Panel Ignores Border Security

Breitbart Texas, by Bob Price

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 7/3/2014 9:19:11 PM

HOUSTON, Texas—The George W. Bush Institute held an immigration reform panel this week that completely ignored any meaningful discussion of border security. The panelists called for a "bipartisan approach" on fixing the immigration system. The panelists claimed immediate immigration reform would somehow reduce the burden on taxpayers, improve the economy, and ensure long-term health for the Republican Party. The panel’s message was being addressed, not just to the audience, but to the wider conservative voters of Texas, according to an article by David Flick in the Dallas Morning News. “The only way we will get absolute security at our borders is

It is absolutely infuriating to read pieces like this. No one seems to care about the sovereignty and security of this nation. It makes me angry and sick.

What do you expect as these are all cheap foreign labor and amnesty supporters, the cheap foreign labor faction is the exact group who started the mass uncontrolled illegal immigration situation in the beginning by hiring illegal aliens.

Imagine if a conservative could magically open a fence and let millions of conservatives into the country. Would any of these clowns still preach about "acts of love"?

The name Bush cannot be associated with any credible measures to provide border security. The Bush dynasty represents the corporate oligarchy that wants cheap labor.

One of the hardest things for me and my family has been taking off the rose-colored glasses where the Bushes are concerned. It´s painful for many many of us. So, this is why I am not surprised at this panel. OP, yes, infuriating in that a family with two former Presidents has no interest in our security or sovereignty MUCH LESS how the invasion affects so many average American towns. They have their fences and security. Their property will never be invaded by drug runners at night.

Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) found himself in some hot water on Friday. According to Time Magazine’s Zeke Miller, the Senate Majority Leader “drew laughter from an Asian audience Thursday with a pair of Asian-themed jokes.” “I don’t think you’re smarter than anybody else, but you’ve convinced a lot of us you are,” Reid said, deploying an Asian stereotype with batting an eye. “One problem that I’ve had today is keeping my Wongs straight,” he added, noting that the common Asian surname has apparently made it difficult for him to distinguish one Asian-American from another.

Oh, I don’t know.He seems pretty grief-stricken here, no? (Snip) Ask yourself this, though. Is “optics” really just a Beltway parlor game? My hunch about most low-information voters, a.k.a. most voters, is that they’d struggle to name who the vice president is when asked. We’re lucky if they’re cognizant of what happened to James Foley at all, let alone Obama’s reaction to it. “As a general rule, I think that he’s right that you can’t be held hostage to the news cycle — the man deserves a bit of downtime,” said Jim Manley, a longtime Democratic strategist. “But in this particular instance, I think a lot

The mother of Michael Brown, the unarmed black teenager shot dead two weeks ago, has said that meeting Attorney General Eric Holder has given her hope that her son might one day get justice. The sequence of events that led to her son’s death remain unclear, but earlier this week Lesley McSpadden and her son’s father Michael Brown, Sr. paid for an autopsy which concluded that their son had been shot six times, twice in the head. The shooting has triggered days of rioting reflecting long-simmering racial tensions in a town of mostly black residents and a majority white police

The president played his eighth round of vacation golf Thursday, swinging freely and shaking hands leisurely along the fairway. Across the world, the battle for Iraq intensified, Israel and Hamas exchanged rocket fire, Ferguson, Missouri remained tense and the nation pondered the gruesome execution of American James Foley.

The British press has mocked President Obama’s golf game immediately following his statement on the beheading of James Foley. The Daily Mail story includes a photo of Obama giving a fist bump for the ages. At this point, a killer rabbit would be a decided improvement. But it’s not just the British press. The New York Daily News captured the reaction of sentient Americans with its “Bam’s golf war” cover. We’re in “more mush from the wimp” city.

As Scott Johnson over at Powerline has noted, the Sixties seems to be making a comeback on the world stage. Consider Barack Obama’s pathetic response to the violence and racial posturing in Ferguson. “It was,” Johnson writes, “a statement full of the reigning leftist clichés, even retrieving the “anger” of “looting” and “carrying guns” from the dustbin of the sixties. Frantz Fanon must be making a comeback among the White House speechwriters. What next? Perhaps R.D. Laing and The Politics of Experience.

Pentagon Official: White House
Foley Leak Endangers Future

On Wednesday, the White House leaked a classified special forces operation to rescue American hostages in Syria. The reason: political cover. The cost: so far, unknown. But this much, we know: The politicized leak of this operation cut through the fog of war to let our enemies know exactly what happened that day in the desert, and because of that, future attempts to free American hostages will be more difficult to plan, farther between, and more dangerous to carry out. On Wednesday, Pentagon spokesman Rear Admiral John Kirby confirmed reports of the U.S. military’s failed clandestine hostage rescue operation in

James Foley´s emotional younger brother said he was frustrated and angry that the US did not do more to help free the kidnapped journalist in an interview on Friday. Michael Foley, 38, said that he believes the United States let his murdered brother down and called for an urgent reassessment of not negotiating with terrorists, a corner stone of US foreign policy. Clearly disappointed and possibly alluding to problems behind the scenes with efforts between the White House and his family to secure James Foley´s release, the tragic reporter´s younger brother said that he hopes the shocking beheading forces a change.

NEW YORK – Officially, the FBI agents who swarmed Donald Ray Morgan at Kennedy Airport this month were there to arrest him on a mundane gun charge. But they whisked him away to their Manhattan office and grilled him for two hours on an entirely different topic: Islamic State extremists. Over and over, they asked Morgan, a 44-year-old North Carolina man, converted Muslim and author of pro-extremist tweets, whether he had traveled to Syria to support the militant group. More important, they wanted know whether he could identify any fighters with U.S. ties who had left the region to return

Hundreds of cops have been ordered to bring their “hats and bats” — helmets and old-school wooden nightsticks — to the Rev. Al Sharpton’s march against police brutality, sources said Thursday. About 350 officers, some on their days off, were told to report to the Staten Island rally at 6 a.m. Saturday, two hours earlier than usual. And while sources say the NYPD isn’t expecting anything like the riots that have rocked Ferguson, Mo., since a white cop fatally shot a black teen on Aug. 9, they are worried about outside agitators. “We have no reason to believe there will

Maria Shriver has quietly moved on from Arnold Schwarzenegger with ABC News political analyst Matthew Dowd. While Shriver split from the former Governator in 2011 after learning he’d fathered a son with their longtime housekeeper, the two have not finalized their divorce and remain good friends. In November, the Washington Post reported that NBC journalist Shriver and former Bush/Cheney adviser Dowd “have been seriously — but very quietly — dating for the past few months.” And this month, he was at Maria’s side at Robert Kennedy Jr.’s wedding to Cheryl Hines in Hyannis Port.

Sen. Harry Reid (D., Nev.) pledged his devotion to President Obama at a recent event. Asked by an audience member about the “fading relationship” rumors between the Nevada Senator and President Obama, Reid vehemently denied any hard feelings and instead heaped praise upon the President. “Everyone knows he called me and said ‘I don’t have a better friend in Washington than you.’ We work very closely together…No one has to worry about me or my caucus walking away from the President,” Reid answered.

President Barack Obama reacted to the on-camera slaying of photojournalist James Foley for five minutes on Wednesday, telling a global audience that ´when people harm Americans, anywhere, we do what’s necessary to see that justice is done.´ Minutes later he began a five-hour round at Farm Neck Golf Course on Martha´s Vineyard for his seventh visit to the links, so far, during a vacation that began August 9. The decision brought a chorus of condemnation from TV commentators, journalists, conservative partisans and Twitter denizens – and even an unintentional slap from the left-leaning New York Times.

He had just hung up the telephone with the devastated parents before heading in front of the cameras. Unusually emotional, President Obama declared himself “heartbroken” by the brutal murder of an American journalist, James Foley, and vowed to “be relentless” against Islamic radicals threatening to kill another American. But as soon as the cameras went off, Mr. Obama headed to his favorite golf course on Martha’s Vineyard, where he is on vacation, seemingly able to put the savagery out of his mind. He spent the rest of the afternoon on the links even as a firestorm of criticism erupted over

President Obama has few remaining friends—either in his own party or in the media.That’s the unmistakable conclusion of two pieces this week in the New York Times. Just about everyone, it seems, is down on his single, solitary nature.I’ve been saying for a year now that the president’s liberal media allies have soured on him.

When it comes to combatting ISIS, the Obama administration has precious few successes to talk about. So today it touted a failure: U.S. Special Operations forces staged an unsuccessful operation this summer to rescue photojournalist James Foley and other Americans being held in Syria by Islamic State militants, according to senior Obama administration officials. The attempt, involving several dozen U.S. commandos, one of whom was injured in a fierce firefight with the militants, was the first known U.S. ground operation in Syria since the country’s descent into civil war. It came after at least six European hostages freed by the

Ryan, who had reportedly been working behind the scenes with Rep.

In a Wednesday interview with Bloomberg News, Ryan said he supported a "path to legalization" for all of the country´s illegal immigrants.

Attorney General Eric Holder said Thursday that his Justice Department is opening a criminal investigation into the brutal execution by Islamic State militants of American journalist James Foley, in the latest move by the administration to use the criminal justice system to pursue terrorists. The announcement comes as the administration steps up its airstrike campaign against the same militant organization -- and mulls additional American boots on the ground in Iraq. Holder, during remarks in Washington, confirmed the "open criminal investigation" into Foley´s beheading, which was recorded and posted online this week.

WITH EACH day, the barbarism of the Islamist extremists terrorizing Syria and Iraq becomes more evident — as does the need for the United States and its allies to act more vigorously to block their rise. On Tuesday the group that calls itself the Islamic State released a video of the beheading of American journalist James Foley . Mr. Foley, as President Obama said Wednesday, “reported from difficult and dangerous places. .?.?. [He] courageously told the stories of his fellow human beings.” One reason there has been so little outcry as more than 150,000 Syrians have been killed and millions

DiCaprio, a staunch environmentalist, and Tree Media launched the Green World Rising series of short films, all centering around certain aspects of climate change. The first film in the series, titled "Carbon," calls for more federal action to control carbon dioxide pollution. “We cannot sit idly by and watch the fossil fuel industry make billions at our collective expense.
