President Barack Obama will meet with the leaders of the three Central American countries at the forefront of the illegal immigration debate this afternoon. Obama will have a joint meeting with Guatemalan President Otto Perez Molina, Honduran President Juan Orlando Hernandez and El Salvadoran President Salvador Sanchez Ceren to discuss their ´shared responsibility´ to promote ´safe, legal, and orderly migration´ to the America, according to the White House. Vice President Joe Biden, who met with Molina and Ceren last month in Guatemala, will also attend today´s meeting at the White House. White House officials said Thursday that president would impress

Hillary Team Calls for Media
Blackout of Anti-Clinton Books

Soon there will be three anti-Clinton books on the market, which is apparently enough to have gotten under the skin of Team Hillary. The First Family Detail by Ronald Kessler, set for release next month, will join Clinton, Inc. by the Weekly Standard’s Daniel Halper and Blood Feud by Ed Klein on bookshelves. Yesterday we reported that Clinton, Inc. has shot up the charts and now both Halper and Klein’s books are outselling Hillary Clinton’s recent memoir Hard Choices. “With Klein, Halper and Kessler, we now have a Hat Trick of despicable actors concocting trashy nonsense,” Clinton spokesman Nick Merrill

House Republicans fear backlash
from punting border bill to the fall

House Republicans are growing anxious about leaving town for the August recess without passing a border bill. Ahead of a pivotal conference meeting Friday morning, rank-and-file lawmakers are openly fretting about the questions they would face from constituents if they break from legislative work without taking action to address the surge of child migrants into the United States. Many argue that if they fail to pass a bill, even one that is a total nonstarter with Democrats, they’ll give President Obama five weeks of open airtime to pound them as do-nothing obstructionists. “It needs to be passed before we go

First lady Michelle Obama called on donors Thursday evening to cut the “biggest, fattest” checks to the Democratic Party, warning that a failure to assist financially in the upcoming midterm elections could result in the death of “Hope and Change.” “[Y]es, there´s too much money in politics. There´s special interests that have too much influence. But they had all that money and all of that influence back in 2008 and 2012 - and we still won those elections,” the first lady said. “Nothing has changed.” However, she warned, Democratic turnout for midterm elections has historically been low. This cannot happen

Congress is about to leave the nation´s capital for its traditional August recess. Since it´s an election year, the month back home is especially important to members of the House of Representatives. Re-election campaigns — and thus congressional careers — can be won or lost in August, so canceling the 30-day respite from doing the nation´s public business is the last thing congressmen in either party want to do. But, with thousands of illegal immigrants, including many unaccompanied minors, flooding the border in Texas, millions of Americans still unable to find jobs, the Middle East erupting, Iraq falling apart, Russia firing artillery

   

 

  


 
How the House GOP lawsuit could
lead to more executive actions

A House lawsuit against President Obama over executive actions could have the ironic effect of causing him to take even more. Obama is responding to the House Republicans´ lawsuit challenging his executive-action end-runs around Congress by looking for more areas where he can take action unilaterally, said a White House official. “We certainly aren’t going to trim our sails,” White House senior adviser Dan Pfeiffer told reporters gathered for a breakfast hosted by the Christian Science Monitor, adding that White House staff are currently on the hunt for more areas for Obama to issue executive actions. “If you’re looking for

Fresh off his controversial defense of Tony Dungy‘s gay comments, Stephen A. Smith has a message to all the women outraged by NFL player Ray Rice‘s paltry suspension for domestic abuse: Don’t say anything that could make your man beat you. “It’s not about him, then. It’s about you, and here’s what I mean by that,” Smith said in a long monologue addressing the women-watching contingent of First Take today. “I think that just talking about what guys shouldn’t do, we got to also make sure that you can do your part to do whatever you can do to make, to

Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin (D-IL) alluded to Glenn Beck´s flamboyant campaign to bring soccer balls and teddy bears to tens of thousands of illegal alien children streaming across the U.S. border while urging Republicans to stow their objections to billions in border crisis funding requested by the president and pass the bill anyway. “Even some of the most conservative political commentators have said first, America, show your heart, that you care for these children. And that’s what the president is asking us to do. So let us take care when we consider the supplemental appropriations bill that we don’t lose

Disclosed Lobbying

A Texas-based organization that has been awarded hundreds of millions of dollars in federal contracts by the Obama administration to house illegal immigrant children not only lobbied the federal government, but also failed to properly disclose the activity. After The Daily Caller inquired about its lobbying disclosures, BCFS, a San Antonio-based nonprofit, now says it may correct its tax forms to properly disclose its lobbying expenditures. The Obama administration, through the Department of Health and Human Services, has tapped BCFS, formerly known as Baptist Child & Family Services, to provide security and other services to unaccompanied children at Lackland Air Force Base

How does CNN’s Chris Cuomo feel about being Jon Stewart’s “Moment of Zen” this week for his unfortunate “shoot down” pun while reporting like from Ukraine this week? According to a new interview with Washington Post’s Erik Wemple, the anchor isn’t thrilled. “I made a mistake,” Cuomo admitted. “In terms of who reacted to it and how, it’s strictly a case of consider the source.” In a possible dig at Mediaite, he added that bloggers “are what they are — they traffic in snark and negativity.” “If it seems like I’m being disrespectful of Jon Stewart, it’s only because I am,” Cuomo

The lavish wealth of underdog-defending filmmaker Michael Moore has been laid bare in his divorce battle with now-ex-wife Kathy Glynn, and their breakup is the talk of their small Michigan community. The couple called it quits after 22 years, with the divorce finalized on Tuesday at Antrim County Circuit Court in Bellaire. According to Celebritynetworth, Moore and Glynn are worth $50 million, much of his success coming from documentaries protesting capitalism. The pair own nine properties, with Moore splitting his time between Detroit and New York. The Detroit News reports that Moore blamed Glynn in legal proceedings for an expensive extension on their

A Boy Scout troop from the nation’s heartland is demanding answers and a U.S. senator is expressing outrage after a group of scouts was detained by U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents, with one child allegedly held at gunpoint. Jim Fox, the leader of the Mid-Iowa Boy Scout Troop 111, said the incident occurred earlier this month at a checkpoint along the Alaska – Canada border. The scouts and their leaders were on a 21-day trek from Iowa to Alaska – a trip that had been three years in the planning. As their vans were moving through a checkpoint into

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.”

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

I received a call from my sons’ school in March telling me that my oldest needed to be picked up early. He had been given a one-day suspension because he had thrown a chair. He did not hit anyone, but he could have, the school officials told me. JJ was 4 at the time. I agreed his behavior was inappropriate, but I was shocked that it resulted in a suspension. For weeks, it seemed as if JJ was on the chopping block. He was suspended two more times, once for throwing another chair and then for spitting on a student

High-ranking U.S. officials said Wednesday that not only are Sunni radicals with the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant “worse than al Qaeda,” but that the group has a message for the president: “We’re coming for you, Barack Obama.” Brett McGurk, the deputy assistant secretary of state, told lawmakers at a House Foreign Affairs Committee hearing that ISIL may have “changed its name,” but that it’s still al Qaeda. (Snip) Elissa Slotkin, the acting principal deputy undersecretary of Defense for policy, added that ISIL also has its eye on the president, threatening “We’re coming for you, Barack Obama,” The Hill reported.

The president’s demeanor is worrying a lot of people. From the immigration crisis on the Mexican border to the Islamic State rising in Mesopotamia, Barack Obama seems totally detached from the world’s convulsions. When he does interrupt his endless rounds of golf, fundraising and photo ops, it’s for some affectless, mechanical, almost forced public statement. Regarding Ukraine, his detachment — the rote, impassive voice — borders on dissociation. His U.N. ambassador, Samantha Power, delivers an impassioned denunciation of Russia. Obama cautions that we not “get out ahead of the facts,” as if the facts of this case — Vladimir Putin’s

A year after news of the Monica Lewinsky scandal broke, former First Lady Hillary Clinton allegedly told a Pulitzer-prize winning journalist that it was former President Bill Clinton’s abusive mother that caused his unfaithfulness and sex addiction, a new book claims. That journalist was Lucinda Franks and while her latest book, “Timeless: Love, Morgenthau, and Me,” doesn’t have much to do about the Clintons, the part that does offers never before reported information from a 1999 interview with the former First Lady. The New York Daily News obtained parts of the book a month before its scheduled August 2014 release.

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.

When President Obama issues executive orders on immigration in coming weeks, pro-reform activists are expecting something dramatic: temporary relief from deportation and work authorization for perhaps several million undocumented immigrants. If the activists are right, the sweeping move would upend a contentious policy fight and carry broad political consequences. The activists met privately with the President and his aides June 30 at the White House, and say in that meeting Obama suggested he will act before the November midterm elections. hey hope his decision will offer relief to a significant percentage of the estimated

The chairman of the Federal Election Commission today blasted Democratic colleagues opposed to his effort to protect conservative media after they imposed rules on the publisher of Rep. Paul Ryan´s new book, opening the door to future book regulations -- or even a ban. "By failing to affirm this publisher’s constitutional right, statutory right, to disseminate a political book free from FEC conditions and regulations, we have effectively asserted regulatory jurisdiction over a book publisher,” warned Chairman Lee E. Goodman, one of three Republicans on the six-person FEC.

If you’re headed to Capitol Hill with a cause, it helps to be a Kennedy. For Robert Kennedy Jr., scion of America’s most storied political family, all it takes is his name to arrange face-to-face meetings with two powerful Senators.

ST. LOUIS – The nation´s third botched execution in six months offers more evidence for the courts that lethal injection carries too many risks and amounts to cruel and unusual punishment, death-row lawyers and other opponents said Thursday. Death-penalty opponents say the execution of an Arizona inmate who took two hours to die shows that state experiments with different drugs and dosages are a callous trial-and-error process. The result: Every few months, an inmate gasps, chokes and takes an unusually long time to die. "These executions are experiments on human subjects," said Cheryl Pilate, an attorney for several Missouri death-row
