Texas Gov. Rick Perry says
U.S. border less secure now

Washington Times, by Stephen Dinan & Dave Boyer

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 7/4/2014 5:02:47 AM

Texas Gov. Rick Perry said Thursday that the surge of people illegally crossing the southwestern border has become such a distraction for immigration agents that the border is now less secure than at any other time in recent years. With Congress out of session this week, lawmakers have traveled to the border to get a firsthand look at the families and unaccompanied children who are trying to cross the U.S.-Mexico border, chiefly into southern Texas, hoping to gain a foothold in the U.S. More than 70 percent of them believe they will be able to stay in the country, according to

Comments:
the Obama spokesman says Governor Perry is just "playing politics".

The Gov. of Texas has the right and the ability to put the TX National Guard on that border.
Push back time.

It really does not matter if the border patrol is reinforced by the National Guard on the borderline as long as the USA has a President in office who maintains policies undermining the immigration laws, that essentially allow all illegal aliens who show up at the borderline to enter the USA to await the next amnesty.

Gaza conflict: Israel and
Palestinians agree long-term truce
BBC News [UK], by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 8/26/2014 12:57:33 PM     Post Reply
A long-term ceasefire has been agreed between Israel and Palestinian militants in the Gaza Strip. The truce, ending seven weeks of fighting that has left more than 2,200 people dead, was brokered by Egypt and began at 19:00 local time (16:00 GMT). Hamas deputy political leader Moussa Abu Marzouk said the deal represented a "victory for the resistance". Israeli government officials said it would ease its blockade of Gaza to allow in aid and building materials. Indirect talks on more contentious issues, including Israel´s call for militant groups in Gaza to disarm, will begin in Cairo within a month. The breakthrough came as both sides

Obama Is Just ´Tickling´
ISIS, Syrian Rebels Say

The Free Syrian Army is not impressed with President Obama’s new threat to attack ISIS inside Syria. That’s like ‘tickling’ the terror group, the FSA says—and is too little, too late. U.S. airstrikes against ISIS, even if they extend into Syria as several Obama administration officials are signaling, don’t have a chance of destroying the terror group, moderate political and rebel leaders inside the country are cautioning. They have told The Daily Beast that air strikes will only make things worse unless there’s a coordinated plan to defeat ISIS. For the Free Syrian Army, the Obama administration’s recent bluster about possibly using

IRS Shocker: Filing Reveals
Lerner Blackberry Destroyed
New York Observer, by Sidney Powell    Original Article

The IRS filing in federal Judge Emmet Sullivan’s court reveals shocking new information. The IRS destroyed Lerner’s Blackberry AFTER it knew her computer had crashed and after a Congressional inquiry was well underway. As an IRS official declared under the penalty of perjury, the destroyed Blackberry would have contained the same emails (both sent and received) as Lois Lerner’s hard drive. We all know by now that Lois Lerner’s hard drive crashed in June 2011 and was destroyed by IRS. The emails of up to twenty other related IRS officials were missing in remarkably similar “crashes,” leading many to speculate that

Vice President Joe Biden has been crisscrossing the country attending closed-door fundraisers and donor events for Democratic House candidates — but you won’t find many on his schedule. In Seattle, Biden worked a photo line at Boeing Field before taking off on Air Force Two. In New York, Biden hit up donors at a hotel in a lower Manhattan after addressing the Goldman Sachs energy conference. After a speech in a Philadelphia hotel ballroom, Biden slipped off to a separate room to meet with campaign donors. None of these side events were on the official public schedule — and they came

For many students, the unwelcome return to school is often sweetened with a shopping trip for school supplies and new clothes. Not anymore. As college, high school and grade school students begin returning to classes, the Environmental Protection Agency is urging students to use recycled material, even garbage, for their supplies and to shop at thrift stores for “retro fashions.” And don’t even think about taking more than one napkin or salt packet in the lunch line. “Buy smart! Purchase and use a wide assortment of supplies made from recycled products, such as pencils made from old blue jeans; binders made from old

Get ready for war: The Islamic State presents the greatest terrorist threat to Americans since 9/11, and fighting it will take more than airstrikes in Iraq, according to a top member of Congress and a retired four-star general. The Islamic State, also referred to as the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, has vaulted in notoriety after the beheading of American journalist James Foley last week. On ABC’s This Week, Rep. Michael McCaul, R-Texas, who chairs the Homeland Security Committee, called Foley’s murder a turning point. “I do think they present the greatest threat we’ve seen since 9/11,” McCaul said. “This has been

Someone paid the ransom that released Peter Theo Curtis from the clutches of Al Qaeda’s Syrian affiliate — if not in cash, then, likely, in benefits for the al-Nusra Front’s battle to topple Bashar Assad. The prime suspect — the only suspect — is the government of Qatar, a country whose emir has carved out an odious dual role as both a Western helpmate and friend to Islamist radicals. Overflowing with oil money, Qatar plays host to both the U.S. military Central Command’s forward headquarters and to Khaled Meshal, the top man of the Hamas terror group. It has funneled more than

What if James Foley, the journalist kidnapped and murdered by ISIS — had been black? Would he have still been killed? If Juan Williams, a black man, were on a Fox News Sunday panel with the white Bob Woodward, Laura Ingraham and Karl Rove, all discussing the events in Ferguson, would the panel still be a “white panel”? Was 9/11, which killed hundreds of blacks and Latinos, a racist attack? We’ll never know the answer to the first question — although we know for a fact that the Rev. Jesse Jackson got headlines and television coverage aplenty years back by securing (along with

What is the difference between CNN and the Titanic? The only casualties from CNN’s sinking will be careers, not lives. For CNN, the bad news has hit. With no new race riots or crashing Malaysian airliners to boost ratings, CNN is back in the ratings basement again. While the normal rules of journalism may not always apply at CNN, the rules of business do. A business must bring in more money than it loses or it must make cuts. Since payroll is usually a business’ single largest expense, that is often what is first cut. At CNN and Headline News,

The ABC’s of not fighting terrorism
New York Post, by Michael Widlanski    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 8/26/2014 5:05:11 AM     Post Reply
Terrorism thrives because many leaders make excuses for not fighting it, rather than making policies for defeating it. Here are some of the most malignant excuses: Excuse No. 1: The terror problem is exaggerated. “Osama bin Laden is dead, and al Qaeda is on the run,” President Obama said a few months before calling the terror group that now controls much of Iraq and Syria a “JV” outfit — junior varsity. We saw the same kind of analysis before 9/11. “Americans are bedeviled by fantasies about terrorism,” ex-CIA official Larry Johnson wrote in The New York Times a few weeks before the planes

American black people are being lied to and the lies destroy them. They are being lied to by corrupt people like Attorney General Eric Holder and Al Sharpton Jr. and Jesse Jackson and the leftists in our news media. They are being told that their poverty is due to prejudice and that the police are targeting them out of bigotry. They are being told that the dreadful existence of slum life grew out of slavery and is being perpetuated by hatred. None of this is true. Poor black people are poor because they have no family structure and get little education.

A Justice Department official admitted that former IRS official Lois Lerner’s apparently missing emails actually exist on a backup server, but the government doesn’t plan to retrieve them. , “A Department of Justice attorney told a Judicial Watch attorney on Friday that it turns out the federal government backs up all computer records in case something terrible happens in Washington and there’s a catastrophe, so the government can continue operating,” Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton told Fox News’ Shannon Bream. “But it would be too hard to go get lois lerner’s emails from that backup system,” Fitton continued, paraphrasing the DOJ official.

The chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff has said that he would not recommend U.S. military airstrikes against Islamic State militants in Syria until he determines that they have become a direct threat to the U.S. Gen. Martin Dempsey, speaking to reporters on board a military plane traveling to Afghanistan, said Sunday that he believes the Sunni insurgent group formerly known as ISIS is more of a regional threat and is not currently plotting or planning attacks against the U.S. or Europe. ISIS has repeatedly made threats to attack the U.S. through social and conventional media. Earlier this month, in a

Democrat Michelle Nunn is running ahead of David Perdue in the race for the U.S. Senate in Georgia. The WSB-TV poll found that Mrs. Nunn has 47 percent to 40 percent edge over Mr. Perdue. The libertarian candidate, Amanda Swafford, received 3 percent, and 10 percent of the respondents were undecided. The winner of the race will replace retiring Sen. Saxby Chambliss. Mrs. Nunn, the daughter of former Georgia Sen. Sam Nunn, is seen as one of Democrats best bets to flip control of a GOP-held seat. Republicans need to flip six seats to win back the Senate.

Veteran journalist Dan Rather told Reliable Sources host Brian Stelter that the scores of pundits calling for action in Iraq, Syria, and elsewhere were reminiscent of the buildup to the 2003 Iraq War, which Rather called a blunder of “historic proportions,” and that hawks needed to be prepared to send their own kids to battle before they so cavalierly recommend it for others. Quoth Rather: “All of these people on television, some of whom I have enormous respect for, it unsettles me to hear them say, listen, we the United States have to ‘do something’ in Ukraine, we have to

Civil rights activist and MSNBC host Al Sharpton compared his relationship with President Barack Obama to the relationship between President Abraham Lincoln and abolitionist and famed orator Frederick Douglass. On NBC’s “Meet The Press” on Sunday, Chris Jansing asked Sharpton about a recent article in Politico Magazine labeling him a “surrogate” for Obama’s White House regarding race relations. “First of all, I’m not a surrogate,” he contended. “I have access to the White House in every era going back to Lincoln with Frederick Douglass. Presidents talk to those that were leading at that time.” “Not comparing Marc Morial or Melanie Campbell and I

FERGUSON, Mo. — It was 1 a.m. and Michael Brown Jr. called his father, his voice trembling. He had seen something overpowering. In the thick gray clouds that lingered from a passing storm this past June, he made out an angel. And he saw Satan chasing the angel and the angel running into the face of God. Mr. Brown was a prankster, so his father and stepmother chuckled at first. “No, no, Dad! No!” the elder Mr. Brown remembered his son protesting. “I’m serious.” And the black teenager from this suburb of St. Louis, who had just graduated from high

When a federal appeals court ruled last month that a seemingly arcane wording flaw in the Affordable Care Act should invalidate a central part of the law, many of those who drafted the statute five years ago reacted with shock and anger. In 2009, they had spent months piecing together a compromise that sought to create a national system of subsidized insurance — but one run by the states. Now, they fear their work could be undone by what some call a "drafting error" and others portray as a political miscalculation. The judges from the U.S. Court of Appeals for

The White House is bristling at suggestions President Obama is disconnected, checked out or out of touch. White House allies maintain that the storyline of a checked-out president is a myth drummed up by the media during the summer doldrums. “It’s bullshit,” said one former senior administration official. “This is a guy who reads 10 letters a day simply to keep in touch with the American people. He spends all his time thinking about the economy and improving lives of the American people. He’s constantly in touch.” Obama has been criticized as out of touch by critics and supporters, with the subject
