Texas governor refuses to shake
with Obama over failure to deal with
immigration crisis amid Dem fears it
is president´s ´Katrina moment´

Daily Mail [UK], by Francesca Chambers

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 7/8/2014 1:06:23 PM

Texas Governor Rick Perry is refusing an offer from the White House to meet President Barack Obama on the tarmac for a handshake when he lands in Texas tomorrow. ´I appreciate the offer to greet you at Austin-Bergstrom Airport, but a quick handshake on the tarmac will not allow for a thoughtful discussion regarding the humanitarian and national security crises enveloping the Rio Grande Valley in South Texas,´ Perry said yesterday in a letter to the president declining his invitation. ´I would instead offer to meet with you at any time during your visit to Texas for a substantive meeting

Comments:
Rick Perry - not just another pretty face. Denying Obama the chance to get a photo of the two shaking hands is brilliant.

You watch, Perry will be called a redneck racist, but we won´t hear a peep about all those democrats on the ballot this November that won´t even be seen with the big jerk.

Totally unfair comparison. Bush did nothing wrong (that anyone has documented) over Katrina. He had bad optics for a day or two. The badness concerning Katrina started weeks after Bush was castigated, and persists today: a vastly over-bureaucratized FEMA.

In contrast, the flood of alien children is a direct result of Obama´s attitudes, philosophies and executive orders -- now amplified by his total ineptness.

The terrorist known as obama had his "Katrina moment" years ago and in the same relative area when he closed down all of the oil wells in the Gulf and let China have the oil. The news media just hasn´t noticed and continues to hold their hands over their eyes today. How many Katrinas does it take to invoke an impeachment? Apparently, the answer is in the thousands because that´s how many times obama has screwed America.

You go, Guv Perry. I wouldn´t shake that hand either. No telling where it´s been.

I´ve never understood this "Katrina Moment" BS. What better way to see the magnitude of the damage than viewing it from the air? What was he supposed to do - get in a boat that could be used for rescuing survivors? President Bush got hosed on Katrina then and is still getting hosed to this day.

I wouldn´t shake that hand either, who knows where that hand has been. Perhaps Reggie knows. A smart move by Perry now would be to initiate the procedures required for Texas to withdraw from the Union.

This followed by the announcement that all illegal border crossers, not formally legal citizens of the USA, would be kicked out of Texas after they served jail time, and after Texas withdrew. After they get out of jail, they get free train tickets to Washington DC.

Failing that, they should purge their voting rolls of all people who cannot prove they were born in the USA or who cannot prove citizenship. Then they should enforce voter ID. Let the Marxists take that to the Supreme Court.

I haven´t seen this take yet:

The law that is being used to prevent the instant deportation of the minors from the non-contiguous countries was reauthorized by a Democrat House and Senate led by respectively, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid and signed by President Bush. I believe it was passed unanimously. The intent of the bill was to prevent human trafficking victims being returned to their pimps. It´s called the "William Wilberforce Trafficking Victims Protection Re-authorization Act of 2008". It has nothing to do with what we are dealing with now. The President, if he so chooses (which he won´t) or the Attorney General (also a "No") could state that this Law does not apply(which it doesn´t).

No, this one sits squarely in the laps of both parties but the President has the power to change this. If he doesn´t, it´s his baby!

The Katrina disaster was caused by a governor and a mayor who didn´t perform their duties correctly.

This is a president not performing his duties correctly.

Katrina was an act of God, this immigration crisis is an Obama made crisis. The sad part is Obama could solve this tomorrow by stopping imports , stop travel & stop aid to Mexico.

Sweden to become first European
country to recognize ´Palestine´

STOCKHOLM - Sweden´s new center-left government will recognize the state of Palestine in a move that will make it the first major European country to take the step, Prime Minister Stefan Lofven said on Friday. The UN General Assembly approved the de facto recognition of the sovereign state of Palestine in 2012 but the European Union and most EU countries, have yet to give official recognition. "The conflict between Israel and Palestine can only be solved with a two-state solution, negotiated in accordance with international law," Lofven said during his inaugural address in parliament.

Norway’s ruling Conservative Party has voted to withdraw their country’s bid from hosting the 2022 Olympics and providing financial guarantees, evaluating the games to be too costly. Prime Minister Erna Solberg commented, “We have received sound advice and there is no reason not to follow it.

Jeremy Clarkson has told how he and his Top Gear team were forced to flee Argentina under police escort as furious thugs tried to ´kill´ them. Rock-throwing protesters vowed to ´barbecue´ the controversial motoring show host after a row over the star´s number plate boiled over. Trouble erupted after a photo of Clarkson, 54, driving a Porsche with the number plate H982 FKL, circulated online, enraging Falklands War veterans who claimed it referred to the 1982 conflict. The presenter yesterday said the violent protest was ´state-organised´ accusing the Argentinians of taking advantage of their visit for ´political capital´.

I’m always sceptical when I hear scare-mongering claims about diseases. From bird flu to SARS, we’re repeatedly told it’s going to be the new Plague that will wipe everyone out and then…it doesn’t. Probably because the scare-mongering itself makes people take it seriously enough to prevent it spreading. But there is something very sinister and frightening about this Ebola outbreak, which has so far infected 7,100 and killed 3,300. [Snip] It’s hard to think of a more cack-handed, dangerously inept response than what transpired in Dallas. Consider what we now know: Thomas Eric Duncan, a 42-year-old Liberian citizen, had been

Health experts assembled by the White House conceded on Friday that a second case of Ebola could be identified in the U.S. But they defiantly insisted that the epidemic plaguing western Africa will not rise to the level of a major American outbreak. [Snip] But the overall feeling of the sparsely attended afternoon press conference was one of complacency, with the Obama administration´s top Ebola spear-catchers saying over and over that Americans have nothing to fear even though the government has no plans to close airports to planes originating in at the disease´s ground-zero.

Health officials have admitted their response to the potential Ebola outbreak in Texas has been ‘rocky’--amid growing concern over how a patient with the virus was able to get through customs, was initially turned away from hospital with painkllers and Hazmat teams then took five days to properly quarantine his relatives.

It is the stuff that nightmares are made of, and day by day it is getting worse. The Ebola epidemic, says Dr Margaret Chan, director-general of the World Health Organisation (WHO), is now “the greatest peacetime challenge” since the Second World War. Yet her own organisation’s tardiness, partly caused by cuts, together with reductions in--and misuse of--funds elsewhere, are largely responsible for Ebola spiralling out of control. [Snip] It’s just the beginning. At present the numbers of people infected are thought to be doubling in under 30 days--and the blue-chip US Center for Disease Control and Prevention predicts that, if Ebola

It has been precisely a month since corpulent young dictator Kim Jong Un disappeared from public view, prompting frenzied speculation about his health and the state of political play in North Korea. Kim was last seen at a Sept. 3 concert, ensconced in a red easy chair next to his wife, Ri Sol Ju. Late last month, the youthful marshal was a no-show at a meeting of North Korea’s rubber-stamp legislature. The cloistered nation’s state-run TV aired images of his seat at parliament—empty.

Three US citizens are fighting in Syria, the British Daily Mail reports Friday. But unlike most foreign nationals, they are fighting against - not for - jihadists. One of the Americans has been identified as Jordan Matson (28) from Racine, Wisconsin, a spokesman for the private Pashmerga army, the Kurdish People´s Protection Units (YPG), said Thursday. Matson is a former US Army soldier now "fighting in the Jazaa area," the spokesman added - an area riddled by heavy fighting between Islamic State (ISIS) and Kurdish forces in northeast Syria. The US has not blacklisted the YPG as a terrorist organization, but it does

Deadly, irrational, and determined, the intruder snuck across a weakened perimeter. Eluding capture, the intruder was detained only after missteps and close calls. The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered. Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events.

It’s the “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.” A New York appeals court next week will consider whether chimps should have the same rights as human beings. The extraordinary proceeding is the result of a lengthy battle by animal-rights activists who argue that animals with human qualities — including chimps — are entitled to human protections, including freedom from captivity. Steven Wise, part of the Nonhuman Rights Project, which is leading the effort, will have to convince a panel of Albany appellate judges that a chimp name Tommy is a “legal person” to get him moved from a cage

For the president’s benefit, let me specify that means a doctor who delivers babies and takes care of the lady parts. When President Obama announced the departure of Eric Holder from his position as attorney general, he also mentioned his “good friend,” the AG’s wife, Dr. Sharon Malone, and he called her an “ohbee-guynee.” (snip) it almost seems as though someone raised in a fantasized USSR training camp for deep cover agents was inserted into the identity of Barack Obama and loosed upon

ATLANTA — Texas, America’s second-most populous state behind California, saw 13 of its last abortion clinics turn away women on Friday, after a federal appeals court upheld a law that practically guarantees that only a handful of clinics will remain open in the state. The strictest-of-its-kind Texas law requires abortion providers to build hospital-grade facilities and obtain sometimes impossible-to-get hospital admitting privileges. After signed into law last year by Gov. Rick Perry (R), the law forced most of the 41 clinics operating to close. Thursday’s ruling wiped out a brief victory this summer for abortion rights proponents,
