Obama offers to meet with
Perry in Texas on border crisis

The Hill (Washington DC), by Rebecca Shabad

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 7/8/2014 7:33:55 AM

President Obama would “welcome” a meeting this week with Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R) to discuss the border crisis, White House senior adviser Valerie Jarrett wrote in a letter to Perry late Monday. “The President would welcome a meeting with you while he is in Texas. In addition, he asked me to invite you to join him for a meeting to discuss the situation on the border with faith leaders and local elected officials in Dallas on Wednesday,” she said. Jarrett highlighted the Obama administration’s efforts so far to handle the crisis at the border. Since October, about 52,000 unaccompanied

Yeah, right. His idea of ´discussion´ has nothing in common with what the concept means. Kind of like his idea of ´bipartisan´.

Perry could show up in his black tennis shoes and horn rimmed glasses with a satchel for the federal dough he wants to pay for law enforcement overtime...there´s something for everyone in all this, especially for the Republicrats.

All Jarrett wants is the photo op. She thinks it will substitute nicely for Obama actually visiting the border.

Rick Perry knows that the idea is that Obama and his handpicked pals (ie, "faith leaders and local elected officials,") would love to use Perry as a pinata.

The Governor needs to attend to more important business. Like cleaning out his sock drawer.

They kept this reptilian Jarrett person pretty well hidden from public view and the MSM until just the past few weeks.
The fact that she is coming out of the shadows tells me that things are not going well in 0bamaland.

What is Obama´s Chief of Staff´s name? Is he just a figurehead? What do we pay him to do? It seems as if Valerie is Obama´s architect. Why doesn´t the Press vilify her like they did Karl Rove? In fact, she does even more than Rove did. We are in this mess because of her and she does not get the credit or blame. She and Holder should be thrown under the bus before our great Republic goes down in defeat!

Learning the alphabet of racism is no small task, and frankly writing it isn’t either. But here at The Daily Caller we’re dedicated to spreading the news that racism is everywhere, everyday. The letter ‘A,’ the letter ‘B,’ the letter ‘C,’ and the letter ‘D’ are behind us — only 21 more letters to go! Here are seven things that start with the letter ‘E’ that somebody, somewhere has deemed racist.

The week winds down with two national political figures attending fundraising events in Chicago: this afternoon First Lady Michelle Obama returns to her hometown, and Friday New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie comes to town. The first lady will attend a Democratic National Committee fundraiser at the Waldorf Astoria Chicago in the Gold Coast neighborhood. Tickets start at $500 per person and scale upward to special donations of $10,000 and $20,000 per couple. Earlier this month, the First Lady traveled to political fundraising events in Southern California. Her visit to Chicago comes as President Barack Obama is scheduled to wind up

Hamas builds tunnels and rockets to kidnap and kill Jews, has a charter that calls for the killing of all Jews wherever they live, launches missile attacks against Israelis, uses UNWRA facilities to hide rockets, spreads anti-Semitism and claims of war crimes against Israel, has become unpopular in Gaza, and is losing support in Egypt and the Arab world. And now the US wants to reward and rescue them with a vast influx of money? They will use that time and money to develop more accurate and deadly missiles, etc. Rewarding murder is what this amounts to. The Wall Street

Chelsea Clinton’s pals, and mom Hillary Clinton, threw the former first daughter an intimate baby shower at a popular upscale Westchester eatery, a source tells Confidenti@l. The group celebrated on Sunday, July 13, at Crabtree’s Kittle House Inn in Chappaqua, near Bill and Hillary Clinton’s sprawling estate. The former POTUS and son-in-law Marc Mezvinsky even stopped by toward the end of the party, popping into the Carriage Room Atrium downstairs on the garden level to share in Chelsea’s special day. “He showed up when it was about to end and worked the room.

Israel: FAA Travel Ban Set to Expire
as Negotiations, Fighting Continue

The US Federal Aviation Agency’s 24-hour ban on travel into Israel’s Ben Gurion International Airport is set to expire. It remains unclear why the Obama Administration decided to suddenly pull the plug on travel into Ben Gurion, as it is widely considered a sophisticated and secure airport. In 2009, the New York Times declared Ben Gurion the world’s safest airport and Israel’s El Al airlines the world’s safest airline. Israeli officials said US Airways and United Airlines are set to restart flights to Israel Wednesday. One-hundred sixty flights at Ben Gurion were canceled Wednesday.

On Multi-Million Dollar Fundraising
Trip, Obama Proves He’s a Comedic Genius

The President is in the middle of a three-day fundraising trip to the West Coast, costing us taxpayers millions of dollars. This practice is not new with him, to be sure, as it’s become standard practice over the last 30 years for presidents to sprinkle official events amongst their money-seeking events. (Photo) Note the solar panels on the rooftops, making this one-percenter homeowner exempt from the usual rich-folk castigations. Two comments he made at the event last night in Seattle were particularly funny: I will say, for the all the Democrats around here, I’m not overtly partisan.

A tale of a boy, a Bible and a gun

Social conservatives feel betrayed by the popular culture, and why not? If Hollywood depicts someone with a gun or a Bible, he’s a figure of ridicule, entitled to say with Rodney Dangerfield: “I don’t get no respect.” (But Rodney’s was an act, and he got paid for it.) The coastal “sophisticates” mock the rubes, as in an episode on “True Blood,” the HBO series with werewolves, vampires and theocratic bloodsuckers, which depicts two rich Republican stereotypes at a Ted Cruz fundraiser at the George W. Bush Presidential Library in Dallas, where a massacre follows. What fun. Relief is at hand.

The Planning Commission for Escondido, a city just outside of San Diego, voted unanimously, by a 6-0 vote, to reject sheltering Central Americans caught illegally crossing the U.S. southern border. A proposal to convert a vacant retirement home and create a 96-bed shelter for the illegal border crossers was opposed by many of the neighborhood residents, according to Reuters. Escondido now falls in lock step with Murrieta, California, about 30 miles north of Escondido, where protesters forced busses to make a U-turn and reroute back to the San Ysidro, California Border Patrol station, near the U.S.-Mexico border.

A major Democratic donor who is funding some of the left’s most politically active electioneering groups was subject to bipartisan condemnation this week in the midst of a federal investigation into his hedge fund’s tax avoidance schemes. Senators from both parties blasted efforts by Renaissance Technologies, a hedge fund owned by Democratic mega-donor Jim Simons, to shield itself from federal income taxes during a Tuesday hearing. “Two banks and a handful of hedge funds developed a complex financial structure to engage in highly profitable trades while claiming an unjustified lower tax rate and avoiding limits on trading with borrowed money,”

President Obama appeared at a fundraiser Wednesday at the home of "Scandal" creator Shonda Rimes and used the popular political thriller to speak about Washington. "No offense, Scandal is a great show," Obama said at the fundraiser before a crowd that included the show´s actress Kerry Washington."But it´s not necessarily something we want to be living out." Speaking at the fundraiser, Obama tore into the Republican party saying that it "has been taken over by people who just don´t believe in government."

After the Federal Aviation Administration extended its ban on U.S. flights to Israel for another 24 hours Wednesday following reports of Hamas rockets falling close to the Tel Aviv airport, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) released a statement suggesting the decision had motives outside of just protecting the safety of American travelers. Asked about his statement at a briefing this afternoon, State Department spokesperson Marie Harf called his comments “ridiculous and offensive.” “Did President Obama Just Launch an Economic Boycott of Israel?” Cruz asked on his website, before answering his own question affirmatively. “The facts suggest that

Texas Governor Rick Perry went on Hannity tonight to discuss the illegal immigrant crisis at the US southern border. Perry shared these shocking numbers on the current crisis. “Sean, there have been over the course of the last five years, since the fall of ’08, over 203,000 individuals who have come into Texas illegally who have been booked into our county jails. Those individuals have accounted for over 3,000 homicides and over 8,000 sexual assaults. We can’t afford to wait for Washington to secure this border. We’ve had enough.”

In scandal after scandal in the Obama administration, President Obama has said he didn’t know about the problems until he heard it on the news. But the president changed his tune about his supposed ignorance at a Democratic fundraiser near Seattle on Tuesday night. Mr. Obama told supporters that he doesn’t watch the news because, “Whatever they’re reporting about, usually I know.” That contrasts with the explanations that the president and his aides have given from scandals in the past few years ranging from long wait times and deaths at the VA, to the IRS targeting tea party groups, to the

Illinois Sen. Dick Durbin on Tuesday urged Walgreen Co. to reconsider a possible move of its headquarters to Switzerland to lower its U.S. tax bill. In a letter to Walgreen Chief Executive Gregory Wasson, Durbin said the company could face a backlash from its customers. “I believe you will find that your customers are deeply patriotic and will not support Walgreen’s decision to turn its back on the United States,” Durbin wrote. “Nearly all of your $2.5 billion in profits earned last year were from sales to U.S. taxpaying customers.” The senator ended his letter with a twist on Walgreen’s

President Obama told Democratic donors Wednesday night that most Americans don’t have time to think about the details of the Benghazi terrorist attack or the problems with Obamacare. Speaking at a fundraiser at the Los Angeles home of “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Scandal” creator Shonda Rhimes, the president took his usual shots at the Republican Party, suggesting its members are focused on the wrong issues and frequently “obfuscate and they bamboozle and sometimes don’t say what’s true.” And because people are not familiar with the intricacies of many public-policy issues, Republicans can get away with such obfuscation, he said. “The Republican

In a potentially crippling blow to Obamacare, a federal appeals court panel declared Tuesday that government subsidies worth billions of dollars that helped 4.7 million people buy insurance on HealthCare.gov are illegal. The 2-1 ruling said such subsidies can be granted only to people who bought insurance in an Obamacare exchange run by an individual state or the District of Columbia—not on the federally run exchange HealthCare.gov. "Section 36B plainly makes subsidies available in the Exchanges established by states," wrote Senior Circuit Judge Raymond Randolph in his majority opinion, where he was joined by Judge Thomas Griffith.

The NAACP Legal Defense Fund has filed a class action lawsuit against the city of Detroit for water shutoffs that members claim are racially motivated. The Detroit Water and Sewerage Department stopped service to about 7,200 buildings with overdue bills in June, compared to 1,570 in the same month last year. The issue gained national attention last month after activists appealed to the United Nations for help. The shutoffs are “being done in a discriminatory fashion,” the NAACP’s Veronica Joice told a local CBS affiliate. “They should at least take a look at whether there’s a better way to do this that doesn’t affect the most vulnerable citizens

While our current secretary of state John Kerry is under fire for sarcastically joking about Israel’s “pinpoint operation” in Gaza, one former secretary of state echoed those sentiments during an appearance on CNN Tuesday afternoon. Speaking to Wolf Blitzer, Madeleine Albright said she thinks Israel is “overdoing” it with its offensive into the Gaza Strip and losing some of its “moral authority” in the process. “I do think the point has to be made, if rockets are being shot at Israel, that Israel does have a right to defend itself,” Albright said. “But the bottom line is the question of proportionality.” Blitzer singled out her use of the word

Tuesday, President Obama visited the Dutch Embassy in Washington, D.C., and wrote in a condolence book for the victims of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17, “We will not rest until we are certain that justice is done.” He then departed for a three-day fundraising trip to the West Coast. Obama’s pledge that “we will not rest until . . . ” may sound familiar to you. In fact, the pledge is so chronically overused, and issued so casually, that it no longer carries much meaning. Here’s a brief history: April 9, 2009: “We will not rest until we reach a day when not one

Colchester – Experts estimate there are nearly 300 adult loons living on Vermont´s lakes and ponds, up from just a couple dozen 30 years ago. On Saturday, more than 200 volunteers spread out across Vermont for the annual loon survey. The results of the survey are trickling in, but Eric Hanson of the Vermont Center for Ecostudies and the coordinator of the Vermont Loon Conservation Project, said there are many more birds now than just a few years ago. He said 15 years ago there were around 100 loons. In 1983, biologists counted only 29. "It is a decent, stable population. I'm hoping that actually things do start to level out.
