Durbin ´fed up´ with House Republicans
The Hill (Washington DC), by Vicki Needham

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 7/6/2014 3:10:11 PM

Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) on Sunday expressed frustration with House Republicans for criticizing President Obama about the border crisis while they have failed to consider comprehensive immigration reform. “I am really getting fed up with some of the critics of this administration, particularly from House Republicans,” he said on CBS’s “Face the Nation.” House GOP leaders have had a year to take up a Senate-passed immigration bill “and yet they refused to," Durbin said. “Now they´re arguing we need more enforcement at the borders and a lot of other things,” he said. (Snip) Durbin called for a multi-pronged approach to

Isn´t this the same man who refused to allow these "victims of a humanitarian crisis" to enter his state yesterday?

The Republicans have been screaming about securing the border for years but the Dems want no part of it. They want the reps to capitulate to their demands.

Republicans aren´t the problem. The Dems are.

Ditto to what #2 said. Plus, if the Kenyan squatter in our White House had secured the border instead of directing Border Patrol resources to the interior we would not be be in this mess. This stuff is not even close to rocket science, so even "Turban" and the squatter should be able to figure it out.

What happened to the increased border security agreed upon in the 80´s in order to get that decade´s amnesty? It never happened. Fool me once.

Contrary to what some on the far right keep saying,
Republicans are making demands
and speaking out about the border.
But, that´s about all they can do legislatively.
Obama and the Democrats are not going to do anything to protect the border and enforce current laws.
The Democrats always answer a question about apples with an answer about oranges and
the media acts like their response is perfectly logical.
I´m sure Durbin wasn´t asked how passing immigration reform would suddenly stop the wave of illegals flooding into the country .
Or why is a piece of unrelated legislation preventing the POTUS from enforcing the current laws ?
This is just like Barry and Kerry insisting that the way to drive ISIS and the rest of the terrorists
out of Iraq is merely for Maliki to just add some Sunnis to his government.

Dick and Barry are going to continue to fill the American Gulags with starving, filthy, sick children until Republicans pass a law making them all citizens. What a charming plan! Real Democrat ingenuity. I pray the low info voters figure out what´s going on before November.

What is the point of new statutes regarding alien invaders when
a. Obama won´t enforce existing laws, and
b. Obama will do what he bloody well pleases with any new ones.
When Obama goes to wherever used-up Communists go to retire and gather speaking fees will be the time to consider new behaviors and laws. In the meantime, the House should devote its energies to enjoying Dickie Durbin´s embarrassing snivels, and speeding Obama´s retirement ( or imprisonment).

There is absolutely no need for "immigration reform". Enforce the laws already on the books. Deport the invaders.

Durbin never appears on the Sunday morning programs where he might have an opponent to have a debate, either because he cannot debate the issues or isn´t smart enough to debate a Republican on any issue.

GOP edge grows in final stretch
The Hill (Washington DC), by Cameron Joseph    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 10/4/2014 7:01:11 AM     Post Reply
With one month until Election Day, Republicans´ chances for retaking the Senate and picking up seats in the House are improving. The GOP has been buoyed by positive public polling, while red-state Democrats are still struggling to find distance from President Obama. There are bright spots and even some unexpected new targets on the map for both parties, but the overall national environment seems to have ticked a bit toward Republicans.The GOP needs to win a net of six seats to retake control of the Senate, and Republicans seem better-positioned to do so now than they did through much of

Obama Unwittingly Makes Best
Case Against Political Speech Laws

President Obama famously derided the Supreme Court over the Citizens United decision in a State of the Union address. Obama’s bashing of that First Amendment decision is also central in the scandal involving Internal Revenue Service targeting of Tea Party applicants for tax-exempt status. Lois Lerner followed Obama’s lead to suppress speech. Thursday, in an address at Northwestern University, however, Obama unwittingly undermined a whole regime of regulation of election-related speech. As reported at The Daily Caller: President Barack Obama gave GOP campaigns and right-wing super PAC’s across the nation fodder to

Obama Is Unlikely to Get Credit
for a Falling Unemployment Rate

One would think that Friday’s announcement that the unemployment rate had fallen to its lowest point since Barack Obama took office would be good news for the president. Yet as the unemployment rate has declined, President Obama’s job approval rating has worsened. So it’s not clear how much of an effect modest changes in the economy’s condition will have on his approval ratings. (Snip) The latest unemployment numbers will be the last ones released before the midterm elections, and Mr. Obama is trying to leverage them to his party’s advantage. On Thursday, he spoke at Northwestern University and talked up




The surprising Ebola connection to chocolate

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:

Record 92,584,000 Not in Labor

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
