The Pied Piper of Permisos
American Spectator, by Ross Kaminsky

It’s beginning to sink in with the intelligentsia: The flood of illegal aliens (yes, I said “illegal”) and particularly the tsunami of children traveling alone — parents risking their youngsters’ lives by sending them from Central America through gang-ravaged Mexico — threatens to turn the immigration debate into a major political liability for Democrats in November. While immigration is typically low on the list of issues Americans care most about, it was to be a trump card for the left in turning out otherwise apathetic or demoralized Hispanic and liberal voters four months from now. But, as seems to be the

I can think of two very American - very old school words - that should be attached to this story: PUBLIC HEALTH!

I remember the story my aunt told of being so scared that her brother would be sent back to Ireland from Ellis Island because he caught a very bad cold on the way over on the ship, and she was terrified the examining doctor would say he had tuberculosis and send him back home.

Public Health!

It should be painfully obvious to all now the fact that Obama destroyed your Healthcare and then has systematically infected us with illegals to infest and infect us with various diseases to wipe out the weak in our nation. I told you many, many times, it´s a plan to destroy this nation. It´s been a plan even before he was elected. He is a friend to our enemies and an enemy to us.

I saw that interview on Sunday with the mayor of Murietta. Massive Candy is a BULLY (as we saw during her take-down of Romney during the debate she "moderated"). Once again she bullied her way through that interview -- I could not contain my disgust at her thoroughly partisan behavior. She is a Democratic Party operative, plain and simple, and anyone who thinks she is a "journalist" is sadly mistaken. I was disgusted with the mayor for caving the way he did, just as I was with Romney for not standing up to the Large One.

Most of us learned how to deal with bullies by the time we were out of second grade. I wish our elected officials acted as though they had too.

A bully can only bully someone if they let them. It´s time to push back on this old biddy. She threw a political debate and should have been banned for life. If its good enough for sports, it certainly should be good enough politics. She needs to be asked about her little performance during that debate. I suggest Trey Gowdy do the questioning.

I too saw the interview with the Mayor of Murietta and that ugly fat sow (nasty) Candy Crowley. What is it with some o our guys on the right when it comes to interviews with the LSM? You know that you´re not going to get a fair shake is so you MUST do either two things. 1. Don´t show up(cowards way out) or 2. Show some guts and not get bullied. Our women on the right get this but not our guys. Now some of them get it because a Trey Gowdy, Ted Cruz or an Allen West would never let a democrat hack like the fat Obama slobberpuss bully them. Crowley´s performance during the Odumbo Romney debate showed that she will do/say anything to protect her lord and master. These people should be given no quarter. I like the mayor and what he´s doing but next time you give an interview with a rotund partisan leftist hack sir you need to do more jabbing and less ducking.

Just read a news leak Oblama is going to ask Congress for 3 billion, not two, to handle the deportation. So which is it today? First, they don´t stay, then he announces, oh no, they not only get to stay, but we are gonna pay thru the nose for it, and now the money is for deportation again. You know dang well he is letting them stay. News from the threatened people on the front lines is, the children don´t even know why they were BROUGHT here without their parents, and want to go home. They are being held prisoner by us. Yes, US!

So Oblama is gonna try the old tactic of saying he wants 2 billion, then saying no, I want 3 billion, and hoping they cave in, but for the 2 billion, like they are somehow punishing him by holding back a billion.

Every 10 year old knows this tactic. "Mom, can I have 10 cookies?"

"No you may not! You know 5 is enough! Now get 5 and go play!"

If they had asked for 5, the reply would likely have been, "Not before supper!"

By asking for more than you really need or want, the other side somehow feels like they are winning by giving. Just less than you asked for. It worked quite well on my parents. "Can I have 40 dollars?", and the usual reply was, "20 is more than enough!"

And a shopping I would go! Better 20, than no dollars!

Always ask for something outrageous. When they give you less, they somehow feel better, and you always get what you wanted, anyway!

Mark my words, and watch. See if I am not right.

Inform the Mexican government that they should block the immigration routes at their southern borders. Starting August 1, illegal immigrants to the US will be denied entry and those that slip through will be returned to the border. In the meantime, illegal minors from Central America will be sent by ship either to Puerto Vallarta or to Cancun where they will disembark. Parents of these illegal minors living in the US will have a chance to claim their children. If the parents are here legally they will face prosecution for child endangerment. If they are here illegally, they will be given an opportunity to unite with their child and then self deport as a family. These are illegal minors. They don´t have standing for and immigration court hearing.

That´s my first thought when the subject of Candy Crowley comes up. Candy Crowley is more a Democratic operative rather than a journalist.

JourNOlist, indeed.

Since she is not really a journalist, nobody should ever consent to an interview with her.

No White House Representatives At Memorial
Mass For Slain Journalist James Foley

No White House representatives were present at the memorial mass held for James Foley on Sunday, although the president did send three to Michael Brown’s funeral, CNS News reports. Foley, 40, was beheaded in a video released by the radical Islamist group ISIS last week. He had been in captivity since November 2012, when he was captured in Syria while reporting for international news service GlobalPost. Pope Francis called Foley’s parents days after his murder was made public, and sent a letter that was read aloud at the mass, held at Our Lady of the Holy Rosary in Rochester, N.H., Foley’s hometown. “The

Last night CNN ran an unverified audio recording of the Michael Brown shooting reportedly captured during a video chat in Ferguson. It sounds like six shots were fired and then after a lapse of a few seconds four more shots were fired. Via Badger Pundit:(Snip for audio) CNN invited North County attorney Lopa Blumenthal to discuss the video. Blumenthal, a leftie, is representing the man who made the tape during an online chat session. CNN ran the video and decided to verify its authenticity later – something they lectured The Gateway Pundit about on Sunday. The video brings up more questions than it

Authorities in Kiev claim to have captured 10 Russian paratroopers who crossed the border into eastern Ukraine, report my Washington Post colleagues, amid suggestions that Moscow is launching a "counteroffensive" in the region to help pro-Russian separatists. But Russian military officials said the presence of their troops there was a mistake. From Britain´s Guardian: "The soldiers really did participate in a patrol of a section of the Russian-Ukrainian border, crossed it by accident on an unmarked section, and as far as we understand showed no resistance to the armed forces of Ukraine when they were detained," a source in Russia´s defence ministry

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

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.

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

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

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

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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
