Obama Seeks 3.7 Billion
to Deal With Border Kids

Associated Press, by Erica Werner & Jim Kuhnhenn

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 7/8/2014 12:50:04 PM

WASHINGTON -- Tackling what he has called a humanitarian crisis, President Barack Obama on Tuesday asked Congress for $3.7 billion to cope with a tide of minors from Central America who are illegally crossing the U.S. southern border, straining immigration resources and causing a political firestorm in Washington. The White House says the money would help increase the detention, care and transportation of unaccompanied children, help speed the removal of adults with children by increasing the capacity of immigration courts, and would increase prosecution of smuggling networks. The money would also increase surveillance at the U.S. border and help Central American

Not to send them home mind you but to ship them to their "families?" all over the US. Oh, and of course provide food, shelter, medical care, and housing...

What´s wrong with this picture? The VA is begging for money to dig into the scandal there, and there isn´t any money available to them. But, we have 3.7 BILLION to spend on ILLEGALS!

I wouldn´t have any problem with this money if it were used as overtime pay for our military so that they can march all these illegals back to the border and force them to climb back over the fence. Then deploy the troops to protect the borders by any means necessary.

This is a setup. Of course the bill won´t pass because the Republicans know how the money will really be spent. Obama will say the bill is for increased surveillance at the border and the Republicans wouldn´t pass it so the influx of illegals is all their fault.

FLASH! Couple on with Rush right now..retired doctor and wife from S. California.
The Catholic Church and the Bishop there have requested that members of the church "take in" illegals, and to keep it quiet..no media to be involved. The Bishop claims that the gov´t will reimburse people who house these illegals in their own homes.
Nevermind exposing the neighborhoods to TB, Ebola, swine flu,the Dr. said it is a real possibility that Ebola can be carried from Europe with some of the illegals.
There is a FEMA Camp less than 10 miles away from this Church where illegals could be housed..It appears that our government with the help of the Catholic Church purposely WANT to infect America.
Call your Church Leaders now and read them the riot act.

They put out a request for quotation back in January 2014 to care for 65,000 minors. Whatever agency put out the request had the money. Use borrowed cruise ships to take them from California and Texas ports to either Acapulco or Cancun. It won´t take Mexico long to stop traffic through their southern borders. If their parents are here in the US illegally they can come claim their children and then self-deport as a family.

You can´t hug unloved children with money, Mr. Obama. What those kids need are hugs all around from the first family... especially the lovely Obama girls. Remember, Mr. President, it´s hot down in South Texas tie time of year. So dress light and casual. Shorts, sandals, and sleeveless blouses. And don´t worry about the republican scare tactics regarding lice, scabies, TB, leprosy, chicken pox, mumps, measles, and probably polio. It´s just scare tactics.

Only if they can place an ironclad "earmark" that all funds must be spent on deportation judges and support staff to open courtrooms around the clock--three shifts--to send these "economic refugees," and the necessary armed enforcement officers to completely seal the border. The only family reunification should be to enable deporting the whole family.

This is an invasion of dependent children needing food, clothing, housing, medical care, schooling, foster care...etc, etc, etc.

How is bankrupting our economy through social services any less destructive than armed conflict and bombing infrastructure??

Why Israel Is Winning This War
Weekly Standard, by Elliott Abrams    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 7/16/2014 5:37:32 AM     Post Reply
The reluctance of Hamas’s “military wing”—a misnomer for the more extreme elements of its extremist leadership—to accept the cease-fire designed by Egypt is, well, logical. Let’s admit it. They do not wish to accept defeat, and the Egyptian terms are a defeat for Hamas. By attacking Israel, what has Hamas wrought? Considerable damage was done to Gaza by Israeli air power, and Gazans will be picking up the pieces for months if not longer. But Hamas proved unable to kill one single Israeli with its hundreds of rockets, and all its special tricks—tunnels, longer-range rockets, a drone—also failed. Nor could

House Republicans are moving quickly to address the growing humanitarian crisis on the southern border, possibly holding votes as soon as next week. As Congress moves closer to the monthlong August recess, the speedy action sends a clear message to Senate Democrats: Take it or leave it. Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio), incoming Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) and a group of top lawmakers working on the border crisis are set to file a bill that very closely mirrors the legislation crafted by Texas lawmakers Sen. John Cornyn, a Republican, and Democratic Rep. Henry Cuellar.

WASHINGTON • In one of his first interviews since his defeat in 2012, former Rep. Todd Akin told the Post-Dispatch on Monday that he has not contemplated running for office again, and instead has focused on closing his Senate campaign and writing a book that will be released today. In a 15-minute telephone interview, the Republican Akin compared his downfall in the 2012 Missouri Senate race to that of former Sen. Joe McCarthy, R-Wis., who in the 1950s was discredited after making allegations that many thought overstated Communist influence in the U.S. government. “I use McCarthy as an example of someone who

Mark Pryor, knocks on a voter´s door in Little Rock and discovers the potential GOP supporter owns a gun. In the world of voter outreach, it´s a potentially crucial piece of information; with the right pitch from a group like the National Rifle Association, for instance, it could prove decisive in getting that voter to pull the lever for Cotton.

Two of the larger social trends of our time — the growth of payday gambling and the legalization of marijuana — have two things in common: They are justified as the expansion of personal liberty, and they serve the interests of an expanding government. The ideological alliance behind these changes is among the strangest in U.S. politics. Libertarians seek to lift governmental restraints on consensual acts. State governments seek sources of revenue without the political inconvenience of requesting broad tax increases. Both find common ground in encouraging and exploiting the weaknesses and addictions of citizens. (And business interests and their lobbyists,

GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip -- Israel on Wednesday intensified air attacks on Hamas targets in the Gaza Strip following a failed Egyptian cease-fire effort, targeting the homes of four senior leaders of the Islamic militant movement. It also told tens of thousands of residents to leave Gaza´s border areas ahead of more strikes. The Palestinian death toll in nine days of fighting rose to 204, with some 1,450 wounded, Palestinian health officials said. On the Israeli side, one man was killed and several people were wounded since the fighting erupted on July 8. The renewed bombings came a day after Israel initially

I took a look back at the current crisis of illegal Central American minors in the Weekly Standard article “Disorder at the border,” published in this past Friday in the new issue of the magazine. In retrospect, I think that the events of the preceding days fixed these issues in the public mind and culminated in President Obama’s notable address following his meeting in Dallas with Governor Perry. Obama had resisted the meeting with Perry, as he resisted visiting the border along the Rio Grande. In Dallas and Austin for big-buck fundraisers with his conspicuously wealthy friends, Obama was ultimately shamed

Conventional wisdom is clear that the next Congress has a considerable likelihood of being a Republican Congress. That same consensus also holds that if the GOP does indeed take control, the next two years will be marked by confrontation with the White House and even less actual legislative action than the present Congress has accomplished. To be fair, there is some compelling logic behind these conclusions. President Obama has clearly opted out of the role of governing through legislation. He has become the most defensive president since at least World War II, blaming the Congress not just for all the ills of the

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security.
