Obama heads to Texas with
no plans to visit border

Associated Press, by Julie Pace

Original Article

Posted By:Flyright, 7/9/2014 7:28:37 AM

For President Barack Obama, the humanitarian crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border is increasingly becoming a political liability, giving Republicans a fresh opportunity to question his administration´s competence and complicating the debate over the nation´s fractured Still, Obama is resisting calls to visit the border during his two-day fundraising trip to Texas, where he arrives late Wednesday afternoon. Instead, Obama will hold a meeting hundreds of miles away in Dallas to discuss the crisis with faith leaders and Texas officials, including Republican Gov. Rick Perry. Obama´s trip comes one day after he asked Congress for $3.7 billion in emergency spending to

Can you imagine if this had happened when Bush was president? The press would be baying like wolves.

#1, the press did exactly that, bayed like wolves, because Bush´s visit over the Katrina area was by helicopter, a "fly-over". But, Bush was there and Bush was talking about it and Bush wasn´t trying to shift the blame that he hadn´t earned.

I would dearly love to see Rick Perry and Greg Abbott (current Attorney General) escorting Obama and Jarrett in and out of those facilities and at the border where the long lines are. It would be lovely if Dubya joined them...heheh.

Illegal immigrants worry about rape, torture, murder, starvation, and disease, while Captain Zero frets about optics. Who encouraged this travesty? Why is the one who should be punished strutting about for politically appealing photos, while others starve?

I think Obama, ValJar, et al in the administration WANT this. They dont care. They LIKE seeing this misery. Its exactly what they want and they are looking for ways to exploit it. Dont EVER assume its because Oblahblah is stupid, naive, or just plain incompetent. He is getting exactly what they wanted and they like it. Kids getting raped and murdered? Just eggs for the omelet in their eyes. American citizens getting horrible diseases that were eradicated decades ago or brought to minimal levels? Meh...they deserve it.

I have a slightly off-topic question. The 2008 amendment to immigration law applied to Central Americans and South Americans. Mexicans are subject to refusal of entry and/or deportation. We´ve just been reading that no one can ask arriving parents if they are legal. So, how is it determined that any or all of these kids are not Mexicans? They look the same, the names would be the same, the language is the same. What´s to prevent little Jose Martinez from Oaxaca, Mexico, from claiming to be little Jose Martinez from Guatamala City?

It wouldn’t shock me if BHO takes time out of his “busy” schedule to sneak down to the border or fly over it so he can say he did. Security Risks will be his excuse for not announcing it beforehand. “The meanies in the Secret Service wouldn’t let me go there” because it would be too dangerous, or words to that effect. I’m just sayin’…

A little off subject but it shows why I’ve mostly given up on Fox News. Here is an example of what just happened on “The Five”. I sometimes listen to it on XM radio while I’m out and about. The segment was about Obama going to Texas to fund raise but not going to the border.

Beckel chimed in saying “well so what? What would he do there anyway? It would be a huge disruption if he showed up”. They then cut to Ed Henry who is traveling with the President. Henry said that Obama would be in Marine One and would invite Gov. Perry onboard to talk for awhile. Beckel then butts in and says “well it’s great that Perry can pull himself away from his ranch and all the racist signs that he has posted around the perimeter”. Then he asks Henry what Perry and the Republicans want to talk about. Henry says “well, the Republicans have a lot to say about the 3.7 billion that Obama wants from Congress. But of course they still haven’t put forward their own alternative”.

I then did what I usually do. Rather than break the radio, I turned it off. Ed Henry, recently of CNN, has boasted of being a drinking buddy of Jay Carney’s. Sickening. Fox, you can do better than this.

When The Times of Israel’s Avi Issacharoff first reported the content of John Kerry’s ceasefire proposal on Friday afternoon, I wondered if something had gotten lost in translation. It seemed inconceivable that the American secretary of state would have drafted an initiative that, as a priority, did not require the dismantling of Hamas’s rocket arsenal and network of tunnels dug under the Israeli border. Yet the reported text did not address these issues at all, nor call for the demilitarization of Gaza. It seemed inconceivable that the secretary’s initiative would specify the need to address Hamas’s demands for a lifting of

DONETSK, Ukraine — A team of international police officers that had been due to visit the site of the Malaysian plane disaster in eastern Ukraine canceled the trip Sunday after receiving reports of fighting in the area.Alexander Hug, the deputy head of a monitoring team from the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe, said it was too dangerous for the unarmed officers to travel to the site from its current location in the rebel-held city of Donetsk.

London -- An Air Algerie flight, with 116 people on board, has dropped off radar, prompting a search for the missing plane, the airline´s operator said Thursday.Flight 5017 lost radar contact 50 minutes after takeoff from Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso, early Thursday. It was supposed to have arrived at Algiers´ Houari Boumediene Airport about four hours later. The plane, an MD-83, is carrying 110 passengers, two pilots and four crew members.

WASHINGTON — As smoke billowed from the downed Malaysian jetliner in the fields of eastern Ukraine on Thursday, President Obama pressed ahead with his schedule: a cheeseburger with fries at the Charcoal Pit in Delaware, a speech about infrastructure and two splashy fund-raisers in New York City. The potential for jarring split-screen imagery was clear. Reports of charred bodies and a ground-to-air missile attack from Eastern Europe dominated television screens while photographers snapped pictures of a grinning Mr. Obama holding a toddler at the restaurant. The presidential motorcade was later filmed pulling up to Trump Place Apartments, the Riverside Avenue venue

President Obama insists on flirting with impeachment even as House Republican leaders insist there’s no such possibility. Obama uses a passive-aggressive strategy that can be judged as a political maneuver, a personality disorder, or both. Secure in the knowledge that impeachment is not the same as removal from office, Mr. Obama brings up the topic on his own and with bold defiance. Martyrdom goes well with a Messiah complex and Mr. Obama’s speeches are a non-stop litany of depicting himself as a victim of Republicans. Already operating beyond the constitutional bounds of presidential power, Mr. Obama’s strategy is to push the bounds

President Obama appears poised to take executive action that would legalize as many as 5 million illegal immigrant parents of U.S.-born children, a prospect that riles local immigration critics and adds a new dimension to concern about swelling immigrant populations in states like Massachusetts eyed as hosting sites for thousands of children who crossed the border unaccompanied. The Associated Press reported yesterday White House officials are laying the groundwork for an executive order that would automatically legalize roughly 5 million of an estimated 11 million people who have entered the country without legal authorization or overstayed their visas.

Even as President Obama grapples with the crisis of immigrant children arriving at the Southwest border, White House officials are laying the groundwork for a large-scale expansion of immigrant rights that would come by executive action within weeks. Officials signaled strongly Friday that Obama´s move would shield from deportation large numbers of immigrants living in the country illegally, as advocacy groups have demanded. Roughly 5 million of the estimated 11 million people who entered the country without legal authorization or overstayed their visas could be protected under a leading option the White House is considering, according to officials who discussed

More than 1,300 workers gathered today in Villa Park, Illinois. Some workers say they’re prepared to engage in sit-down strikes and organize more workers in their campaign to win $15-an-hour wages and a union. Their actions so far have included one-day strikes and a protest outside this year’s McDonald’s Corp. shareholder meeting.
