An immigrant surge en route
to a Third World USA

Washington Times (D.C), by Wesley Pruden

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 7/3/2014 10:23:24 PM

Maybe we’ve been conned. There’s a growing recognition that Barack Obama is an incompetent poser, working out of his depth, and his administration is the gang that can’t shoot straight. There’s a lot of evidence to support that belief. Everything he touches becomes a bloody mess, like crushed bones and bits of flesh caught in the tracks of a tank slicing through a rank of soldiers (or civilians). Iraq, Syria, Egypt — all gone, as prospects for countries with a prosperous and democratic future. The “reset” with Russia, meant to ensure that America and the replacement republic of the old

Our hope will have to be that he really doesn´t understand Americans. He was surprised by the TEA party. He never expected the People to stand up and demand that their representatives stop raising taxes and wasting money. With a slavish press, huge majorities in Congress and weak establishment GOP, he thought he held the reins of power. With Big Oil trying to maximize profits and the alliance of the Press, the Greens and Global Government cronies, he thought he could cripple the American economy by making energy prices skyrocket. He never dreamed that ND could produce a million barrels a day of oil or TX could add another 2 million barrels a day. And he never guessed that he would lose 20 unanimous decisions by the Supreme Court. In the words of Bugs Bunny, "He don´t know us very well, do he?"

Barack Obama is a nothing from nowhere. He is a symptom, a manifestation of the devastating consequences of socialism. Long before he showed up we were well on the way to the Third World. The Democrat War in Viet Nam accelerated the process whose seeds were planted by Woodrow Wilson and FDR.

He knows the American people, with more mercy and compassion in their hearts than he has, would not stand for dumping children on a barren and hostile landscape, to be carrion for the coyotes.

I´m sorry...I have no problem with that concept. It´s either that or continue to let them swarm our towns and cities, changing the demographics, bringing ruin, filth and disease wherever they go. Coyote´s have to eat, too, you know.

Worse yet, U.S. citizens have practically no say. Our own communist ridden goobermint is forcing states, cities, villages, towns to take them and pay for them. Most of these places are already broke. Hello Detroit. Thank a demonrat on your way and quit voting for them. Every single drop off point should do the same thing as that CA town did. Maybe those morons in congress will finally get a clue.

Wes Pruden is getting close to the truth here. There is no need to move all the poor of the third world to America for them to have a chance but to apply the policies of the founders of America to the government of the impoverished countries of the third world to harness the potential of human capital and make them wealthy. All can be exceptional in that way. Instead of that we are ending the application of those policies ( the constitution ) in America and making it just another third world hell hole in the name of charity. Mark Levin points the way - the states get together and re-enforce the constitutional protections against the statist destructive program Obama represents. Arizona was an early stab at this which looks inspired now. It needs to be done by 2/3 of the states and soon. Don´t leave this disaster unfolding any longer.

This deserves top spot on the MUST READS, especially on a day that commemorates the an America free of oppression from foreign countries.

Now we face a situation, Pruden wisely notes, that after having fought the American Revolution to get free of the tentacles of those who would deny us our freedom, we find ourselves in a position of making a similar decision: Do we remain under the thumb of our own governmental failure and a President who is deliberately orchestrating those failures, or do we fight a revolution against the oppression this flood of immigrants will bring?

We cannot absorb tens of thousands, soon to be hundreds of thousands, of unproductive immigrants. They will crush our economy and our personal liberty, through the taxes imposed upon us to support them.

Obama is not just nasty. He is evil. He wants to destroy the only place left on this earth where people can advance BY THEMSELVES, through hard work. He wants people to depend on government, preferably with himself at the top.

If all these immigrants are permitted to stay without having to contribute anything to this country, we are done. Over.

All that blood spilled on the wars that kept us and others free has been for nought.

America, unite. If we, Democrats, too, do not unite against this Administration and it´s policies, if we do not unite especially against this POTUS, we can all, Left and Right, kiss our freedom and prosperity goodbye.

History will show that a man named Barack Hussein Obama, who had no credentials or experience, no qualifications to be POTUS, brought us down while his friends did nothing to stop him and his opposition was outnumbered, unaware, and too lazy to care enough.

FTA: There’s a growing recognition that Barack Obama is an incompetent poser, working out of his depth.... this may be ascribing to incompetence what is better explained by conspiracy. Mr. Obama promised in 2008 that he intended to transform America, and he is well on his way.

Finally someone says what we here have been saying all along! There is always an evil, malevolent purpose to everything Obama does. I hope this is what finally pushes people over the edge to start pushing back. I just cannot believe what I am seeing him do. All the stars aligned just perfectly for an evil man to destroy this country and we thought it could never happen here.

So let´s play a hypothetical exercise...

A secret agent of a dedicated enemy of the United States becomes its President and Commander in Chief. He starts spending wildly and creates an unsustainable debt load. He saddles all our major businesses with choking regulations and costs that kill jobs. He begins eliminating our military´s major weapons systems and he fires dozens of its leaders because they don´t follow his orders. He then openly supports enemy organizations and gives them arms and financial aid. He has his domestic agencies buy up virtually all ammunition in the country and load up on military gear. He has his intelligence agencies start gathering every single voice and data communication by every citizen in the country.

And then...he totally opens the borders, and already has in place the transportation elements and plan (by a solicitation 6 months ago) to distribute, relocate, and finance everyone pouring in across that border.

Question: What would a sane country do with such a hypothetical President?

Excellent but heart breaking article. It is very difficult to watch your birthright being cast side as nothing. Our ancestors fought and died to create a land of opportunity and freedom. Today our government has so cheapened the sovereignty of this country that they refuse to even secure our borders. It takes an evil craven man to use children as pawns for political expediency. That being said, if we the people do not stand up and resist, we will have no one to blame but ourselves. As we celebrate the 4th let us all remember who we are and know that is something that Obama can never understand. We are Americans and we will never let this country fall into the pit he is preparing, ever. God bless America, the land of the free and home of the brave! We will not let this wretched man destroy what our ancestors have built.

Obama is pushing for a massive liberal Democrat amnesty for up to 20 million illegal aliens under the guise of what is faux comprehensive immigration reform. Following that amnesty, the millions of legalized aliens would gain the right to bring their foreign relatives here in unlimited numbers, thus legalizing the flow of illegal aliens now coming across the borderline. All would be put on a special path to citizenship run by the very liberal ethnic and immigrant rights groups and since just about all are poor and uneducated people the vast majority would be natural socialist oriented Democrat voters.

Once on line as new US voters, they would get to keep their foreign citizenship with foreign countries like Mexico gaining a big influence over US polices through their ethnic voting bloc especially throughout the Southwestern USA. No doubt they would further pressure the liberal Democrats to further open the borderline and further liberalize the immigration laws to complete ineffectiveness. Why not a new amnesty before every future election?

The legal US labor market would be flooded with cheap foreign labor, and once labor market laws of supply and demand swung into action people working in all industries where the legalized foreign labor could be hired would only earn about the minimum wage. Most alien workers would have to be highly subsidized through social welfare programs, with only about half of their children ever graduating from high school.

What Obama is doing by not enforcing the immigration laws is a big time national social disaster in the making.

#10, yours is one of the best posts I´ve read! #13, not bad either. This is a very important thread on a very significant day. I felt very strongly in 2012 that if Romney didn´t win, this country would be lost for a long few years. It is coming to pass right before our very eyes as this article spells out. Last night my wife and I saw the D´Souza film, America. Very strong film that left me feeling extremely fearful for this nation. This man should have never been given a second term. We the people hold the power in our hands to vote out those who are destroying our republic, but in 2012 we failed, and we are living the consequences. All we can do is unite for 2016, but I have great concern that we won´t.

Please forgive a second post. Your hypothetical #13 is actually factual - but you knew that! The point I am trying to make is to tear the mask of charity from the face of those who advocate wide open borders. It is not charity because you are doing the favour to the new immigrant from what belongs to others - the value in being a citizen in a law abiding country. Open borders people imagine themselves as “charitable” but are really no better than the criminal coyotes. Secondly it is bad policy and if it succeeds it will destroy the last place worth moving into. It is not charity to give away what belongs to another and it is stupid to tolerate this chaos. The means to practice real charity can only to gained by work and in an atmosphere of law and order. Do not let the open borders crowd dismiss you as animated by hatred when you demand law and order on the border and border security! The american public is widely animated by real charity, and this big lie is especially destructive of that, to the detriment of both America and the third world. Where will we all go next time?

Just the other day I said basically the same thing and got 59 likes. Immigration has been our Sword of Damacles for many years. I am going to be bold. I am a Mayflower descendant from Massachusetts. I am old enough to have seen the meltin pot when it still existed and saw how it worked. French, Irish, Italians, Poles and Jews became Yankees as we understand them in New England, descendants of the originalEnglish settlers. If you doubt me, watch This Old House. Then came an insistence on respecting every culture and allowing people to keep theirs. In New England this was facilitated by calling us snobs and making us ashamed to call ourselves Mayflower descendents. This was followed by Spanish speakers to insist we learn Spanish here in South Florida where I now live. The Cubans avoided the melting pot and we live side by side but in competition. Some jobs Americdans cfannot get because they do not speak Spanish. My mother had to leave a job (years ago) because the Cubans froze her out. Tell us Cubans, is this better than you joining the melting pot. You are very proud of making Miami a large city, but did you make it a better, fairer, less corrupt one? No, you did not.

Immigration was always the Sword of Damacles haning over our headss and if this was pointed out we were racists, nativists, snobs, heartless, you name it. They made us ashamed to say the truth: our culture is better than yours.) It´s all over now.

This surge of refugees are a direct result of Obama following the lead of B Ayers as shown on The MegKyn kelley show and how Ayers advises to break any laws standing in his way.
Obama also subscribes to the teaching of Cloward and Piven," overload the system you intend to destroy in order to create Chaos.

The Communist Party of the USA (CPUSA), aided by black communists, used a "crisis" (Scottsboro trial of 1932) to strip 97% of African Americans from the Republican Party.

The communists in the WH and democrats are using immigration, specifically this "crisis" to gut the soft underbelly of the Republican Party and shove Hispanics into the arms of the left.

We have all known for years now that Los Angeles is a third world city, and California is well on the way to becoming a third world state. I hope that the petitions currently in the signature stage are successful in breaking California into six states are successful but I doubt they would survive a state wide vote. After all, who would support all the deadbeats in Los Angeles and San Francisco.

This immigration mess right now is just another staged event by the criminals in the White House and the so called Justice Department. If you want to get elected in 2014 and 2016, make this event and illegal immigration in general your main talking point, and promise to evict every illegal criminal in the country your first priority.

Press the point that they illegally vote and call for nationwide voter ID. Press the point that illegals are cancelling your legal vote and electing other criminals.

Oh yes, shove the Dream act to a place where the sun don´t shine. Only in Liberal world do you reward criminals with legal citizens tax money. That has to stop. Also ignore Michelle and her school food insanity. Nobody elected her to anything.

Because Wes, and conservative talk and write pundits think "the mighty ship is bereft of a rudder" is why we´ve already lost this constitutional representative republic forever. The people elected the enemy of the republic and the enemy is purposefully, with malice and forethought, and now in broad daylight, buying the insurance to make sure the republic stays gone forever. You see, there are two things required for a free press. One is the freedom to write the truth, facts and data. The other is the ability and DESIRE to read, comprehend and then act on that data. The first is useless without the second. We lost the second requirement decades ago. That´s why conservative, truth telling sites are no longer a threat to the Marxists. Besides, they are DOING per Alinsky and Cloward/Piven. We are simply lighting our hair on fire for their entertainment.

These people are coming in ahead of schedule and under budget. This started at least a century ago under Woodrow Wilson. The pioneers of destruction knew they would never live to see the "fruits" of their labors, but did their part for the cause.

A dream of the communists for years has been the destruction of America, the last roadblock to their world domination. It turned out to be easier than thought.The civil rights movment of the 50´s was the perfect vehicle to get Americans to go along.

Just wrap everything in terms of "fairness", "oppressed minority",etc. Take black out of it and substitute "gay", "undocumented", and whatever else works, to separate us from our heritage, our culture, and most importantly, our Constitution, and we find ourselves here, where we are.Oh,and don´t forget to remove any reference to God; we don´t want any of that Jesus stuff around here; that´s unconstitutional!
Funny. The Founders never conceived of banning Jesus from the town square; of mothers, "by right", to kill their unborn children; of sexual deviants "by right", to pretend to get married.We are well on our way.
And the head of the opposition to this, who has the power to do something,Mr. Boehner, is more interested in happy hour.
See? Easy.

Does the person who wrote that front page caption really believe that this is due to 0bama´s mere incompetence, rather than his INTENT?

Are you unaware of the tactics espoused by Cloward -Piven and Saul Alinsky for destroying the U.S. A. and that 0bama is a student of those people, and others who raised him from birth to destroy this nation?

Does anyone really still believe that all this stuff is just ignorance and laziness?

Any LDotter --- heck, any reader of this site --- will never really understand what Obama is up to, really up to, until they read Alinsky and become familiar with the "Cloward-Piven Strategy".

Several on this post have mentioned it but you have to read it for yourself. Then you must never, ever vote for someone who supports Obama in any way. Yes --- even in your local elections like school board, trustees, commissioners, sheriff, etc. Ask the candidate what they think of Obama. Any hint they feel he´s "doing okay" means you don´t want that person in any kind of power. It is my new litmus test.

The fact that much of the media has not put that blame for the current out of control situation along the borderline on Obama and his failure to effectively enforce the immigration laws, shows that the media is just a bunch of shills for the Obama Administration and the liberal Democrats.

This isn´t about Obama. The two families who control the Republican Party, the Bushes and Barbours, want open borders as much as Obama and the left do. In the mid 2000´s George Bush and his pals said vicious things about conservatives who merely wanted border security. On July 4, 1984 the Wall St. Journal advocated a five word Constitutional Amendment: ´There shall be open borders.´ In 2014 WSJ has got their open borders. Elected Republicans have access to microphones 365 days a year. If any of them felt as we did they would´ve been using those microphones daily for the past few months to explain that the US no longer exists. A country without a southern border isn´t a country.

Great comments.

Zippy was a little ahead of his time because our generation remembers the greatest times in America, while the next generation won´t fight back.

It is a matter of numbers before we become a third world country. If you keep bringing in the uneducated and poor from south of US, sooner rather than later there will not be enough workers to support them or the government. Seventy five percent of the population cannot be on welfare. Keep in mind who the educated are from other countries.

First it was MI, then CA and now NY will follow. The mass exit from one state to another is merely a new version of heading to the reservation. How long before those owning property will be told to share with immigrants with large families ? Already we are told how our neighborhoods should look.

Speak now or forever hold your peace. Stand up and be counted.

The surprising Ebola connection to chocolate
Los Angeles Times, by Carla Hall    Original Article

Just when you thought you knew all the consequences of the Ebola pandemic, here’s another one: it could affect the supply of chocolate. Of course that doesn’t rise to the seriousness of illness and death, but it does show how much Ebola affects trade and production. An estimated 70% of the world’s cocoa beans come from the West African countries of Ivory Coast, Ghana, Nigeria and Cameroon. Ivory Coast is the world’s largest producer, exporting 37.8% of the world’s cocoa, according to the Wall Street Journal. (In fact, Ivory Coast just posted a record harvest and the government increased its

President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama celebrated 22 years of marriage Friday and the husband-in-chief offered marriage advice to a new bride while at a stop in Princeton, Indiana. "He´ll screw up a bunch," Mr. Obama said. "Eventually we learn, but it takes us a little longer, because we´re not as smart." For her part, the first lady, who Obama said "has been very patient with me," tweeted a photo from their wedding, which took place Oct. 3, 1992, wishing her spouse a happy anniversary. (Tweet)

While small towns and cities throughout the country are gearing up for Halloween, one city in Ohio has a different kind of municipal decor — Planned Parenthood banners. One reader sent The Daily Caller these photos of Planned Parenthood banners attached to lampposts throughout the town of Wooster in northeastern Ohio. “As I drove through the small town,” he told us, “I noticed approximately one dozen Planned Parenthood banners posted prominently along the city streets.” (Photo) TheDC called Wooster’s mayor’s office, who told us that it isn’t responsible for the banners, and directed us to a group called

This Sunday, Chuck Todd will debut his new set for Meet The Press, which NBC claims “incorporates Chuck’s personality” into the decor. Judging from the recent photos released of the set, like the round table used for one-on-one interviews, we’re thinking Todd’s personality can best be described as “POÄNG.” (Photo) This is Todd’s panel desk, which was made by attaching a LACK table to a GLASHOLM: (Photo) This is Todd’s America Shelf, probably inspired by Pinterest’s Ikea Hacks: (Photo) And there is reportedly an “informal interview” credenza, which could look like any of these:

A record 92,584,000 Americans 16 and older did not participate in the labor force in September, as the labor force participation rate dropped to 62.7 percent, a level it has not seen in 36 years, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported on Friday. Six times in the last twelve months, the participation rate has been as low as 62.8 percent; but September´s 62.7 percent is the lowest since February of 1978. The participation rate is the percentage of the civilian noninstitutional population who participated in the labor force by either having a job or actively seeking one. Those not in the

The Obama administration found itself on defense Friday after former Defense Secretary Leon Panetta criticized the White House for its policies on Iraq, with the State Department and others publicly disputing his claims. Panetta chided the president´s team in his forthcoming memoir, excerpts of which have been published in the media. He alleges the White House didn´t try hard enough to strike a deal with Iraq in 2011 to leave a residual force of U.S. troops behind, in turn opening the door for the region to become a haven for the Islamic State. In newly published excerpts, he also criticized

IRVING — Former President George W. Bush spoke before wounded veterans taking part in his Warrior Open on Thursday, saying the tournament could be characterized in different ways: “One, you can call it the ‘Courageous Open,’ or you can call it ‘There’s No Self-Pity Here Open.”’ “Any way you call it, we thank you for coming to support the men and women who have worn our uniform and the courage they’ve shown,” Bush said before the golfers headed out for the second day of the tournament, held at Las Colinas Country Club in the Dallas suburb of Irving.

Cover-up of Nepotism Report
Latest Black Eye for California Senate

The dictionary defines nepotism as, “the practice among those with power or influence of favoring relatives or friends, especially by giving them jobs.” It perhaps should come to no surprise to anyone even remotely aware of the ethical scandals permeating Democrats in the State Senate that a new scandal should emerge surrounding untoward hiring practices in the State Senate, and a cover-up by Senate Leadership. (More on that cover-up in a moment.) First I think it is important to recap that the Senate, as an institution, is clearly at an ethical low point. Former Democratic State Senate Rod Wright finally resigned

Vice President Biden has delivered some colorful lines over the years, including calling President Obama’s healthcare plan a “big f****** deal,” but his best Bidenism yet might have happened Thursday night. Speaking at the Harvard Institute of Politics in Cambridge, Massachusetts, Biden was asked a question by the vice president of the student body, prompting Biden to joke about how he feels about being number two. “Isn’t it a b****?” Biden said to laughs from the crowd. “I mean, excuse me, the vice presidency? I mean woah.” Biden was quick to clarify his comment was simply a joke. “I’m joking, I’m

Yasser Tabbaa, a specialist on Islamic art and architecture, remembers taking many trips to a 13th-century shrine dedicated to the Imam Awn al-Din, in Mosul in northern Iraq. The building was one of the few to survive Mongol invasion, never mind the destructive effects of weather and time. And this shrine had a stunning vaulted ceiling, like a honeycomb. “It is a beautiful pyramidal tower at the edge of the Tigris,” said Mr. Tabbaa, who taught at New York University Abu Dhabi and lives in Ann Arbor, Mich. His heart fell this summer, however, when he saw an online video

PRINCETON, IND. — President Obama on Friday credited his administration´s policies with helping to boost the economy and said the recovery is "real ... steady and happening." Speaking at a steel plant outside Evansville, Ind., on "Manufacturing Day," Obama touted the unemployment rate, which on Friday fell to 5.9 percent in September, the lowest number in six years. The report said the economy added 248,000 jobs in September. Obama said the country is "on pace" for the strongest job growth since the 1990s and experiencing the longest period of uninterrupted growth in U.S. history. Still, he acknowledged that the

DAKAR- Journalists will need official permission to cover many aspects of the Ebola outbreak in Liberia, under new rules that the government said aimed at protecting patient privacy. The move was announced on Thursday, the day an American cameraman working for NBC News in Liberia became the first foreign journalist to test positive for Ebola. There was no indication that the new rules were related to that case. Growing international media interest in the outbreak that has killed nearly 2,000 people and infected 3,696 in Liberia has highlighted the challenges to the West African country´s healthcare system.

My last article for American Thinker was too long. And too short. Too long because the gurus tell us articles should be about 600 words. My story about the president talking to the black caucus about white people inflicting constant racial injustice on black people came in at 1500 words. I was just getting warmed up. I thought it strange that at the same time the president was trying to persuade us that black people are relentless victims, black people were committing acts of racial violence in places like Seattle, Miami, Indianapolis, Bronx, Ferguson, Kansas City, Providence, Minneapolis and 18 miles from where

In her just-released memoir, 27 year-old "Girls" star Lena Dunham claims that as a 19 year-old Oberlin College student in Ohio, she was raped by a college Republican. In the first chapter that addresses the encounter, Dunham describes the "ill-fated evening of lovemaking" as awkward and hollow. The most sensational moment comes from the fact that "Barry" wasn´t wearing a condom. In the next chapter, Dunham backtracks with the claim that she´s an "unreliable narrator" and accuses "Barry" of rape: [I]n another essay in this book I describe a sexual encounter with a mustachioed campus Republican as the upsetting but

A recently retired Secret Service agent told MailOnline on Thursday that former director Julia Pierson´s resignation will be welcomed by the agency´s rank-and-file because ´people in the service thought she was a joke from Day One.´ He attributed her swift fall from grace to a cadre of ´p***ed off agents who had had enough´ of feeling disrespected by the service´s first female director. ´Putting her in charge was part of the [Obama] administration´s push to feminize the service after the "hookergate" nightmare,´ the agent said, referring to agents who were fired after patronizing prostitutes during a security-check trip to Colombia

The quintessential question of Watergate was “what did the President know and when did he know it?” Obamagate, the vast scandal that encompasses an entire presidency, offers a preemptive answer. Obama didn’t know anything and he never knew it. At least not until, like smuggling weapons to druglords, bugging journalists, IRSing his political enemies and killing vets, his right hand found out about what his left hand was doing from the morning paper. After skipping 58% of his daily intelligence briefings in Term 1 and 59% of them in Term 2, he went on 60 Minutes and blamed intelligence agencies for being

Deadly, irrational, and determined, the intruder snuck across a weakened perimeter. Eluding capture, the intruder was detained only after missteps and close calls. The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered. Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events. A mental case jumps the White House fence. He makes it to the East Room before he’s tackled by an off-duty Secret Service agent. Initial statements turn out to be misleading or false. We discover that lapses in

President Obama was at Northwestern University on Thursday to deliver an economic speech that, he and his team hoped, would lay out the case for why the public is better off today than they were six years ago -- even if they didn´t feel it in their everday lives. Instead, Obama just gave every Republican ad-maker in the country more fodder for negative ads linking Democratic candidates to him. Here are the four sentences that will draw all of the attention (they come more than two thirds of the way through the speech): "I am not on the ballot this

A recent fight between Rosie O´Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg has producers at The View looking to add a cool-down room for the ladies. After being cut off by Goldberg during an episode last week so the show could go to commercial, O´Donnell began to express how upset she was and, after being told repeatedly by Goldberg it was not the right time to have that discussion, eventually got cursed out by the Oscar winner. Goldberg told O´Donnell, ´F*** it, I told you to leave it alone and you just don´t want to listen. If you want to go there Rosie,

A presidential defeat isn’t an easy thing to bounce back from. And Mitt Romney did it twice. So it was understandable that after he lost the presidential race in 2012, he was adamant about closing the door to the possibility of a third campaign. But recently, speculation is whirling that Romney may not be so adamant anymore. When asked if he was running in a New York Times interview published earlier this week, Romney said : “I have nothing to add to the story. We’ve got a lot of people looking at the race,” he said. “We’ll see what happens.” That response, which

Meghan McCain joined the dog pile on the Secret Service this week, saying she’s had “nothing but horrible experiences" with the agency and likening the agents to “glorified mall cops.” The 29-year-old author and television personality, who is also the daughter of former GOP presidential candidate Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), opened up on Pivot’s “TakePart Live” about some of her interactions with the Secret Service. "I have nothing but horrible experiences with the Secret Service,” McCain said. “One of my friends called them glorified mall cops and I don´t think that´s terribly far off. I found them cliquey.

WASHINGTON — Representative Elijah E. Cummings of Maryland was at the grocery store the other day when he ran into an elderly black woman who expressed growing concern about President Obama’s safety. Why, she asked, wasn’t he being better protected by his Secret Service agents? The furor that led to this week’s resignation of the director of the Secret Service resonated deeply among blacks, outraged that those supposed to be guarding the first black president were somehow falling down on the job — and suspicious even without evidence that it may be deliberate. “It is something that is widespread in

On Wednesday, the ex-CNN talk show host wrote his first story as editor-at-large for the Daily Mail. While the content is vicious, angry and sure to tickle conservative journalists and pols, the writing is colorful, even entertaining.“A slapdash Secret Service detail isn’t what’s wrong with the White House — the real scandal is a President who is so complacent about protecting Americans,” the headline blares. Piers predicts that now that President Obama went on “60 Minutes” and distanced himself from U.S. national intelligence agencies on the rapid spread of ISIS, he’s guaranteed himself leaks to the media for the remainder of his
