The Crisis on the Border
Wall Street Journal, by Peggy Noonan

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 7/11/2014 5:50:02 AM

What is happening at the southern border is a true and actual crisis. News accounts justly use words like chaos, collapse and breakdown. They feature images of children—toddlers, 4- and 5-year-olds—being shuffled to warehouse holding centers, sleeping crowded at night on what look like pallets, covered only in Mylar blankets. "I never thought we´d have refugee camps in America," said Texas Sen. John Cornyn, "but that´s what it´s appearing." All this gives normal people a feeling of besiegement and foreboding. Is a nation without borders a nation? Washington´s leaders seem to recognize what´s happening as a political problem, not a real

Peggy Noonan was on my blacklist for years, but she´s rehabilitated herself. This should be a must read.

Sorry, till Obama is a faded memory, repudiated by both history and all who voted for him - till Peggy in print apologizes for her 08 endorsement - I´ll not read her drivel nor think she´s been rehabbed.

She said the important thing which when acknowledged, will tip the scale of this thing towards deportation. This is a ginned up "hostage crisis" to get the Senate Bill Gang of Eight Bill passed. It´s the first place the President went. It was the ransom demand.

Somebody needs to call his hand on it so that it becomes a talking point. The American people will be furious. It will then be found out that this was all instigated from here.

Sending all of these waifs back is not cruel, it is necessary. Approximately 5.4 BILLION around the world live in poverty worse than what these kids are supposedly fleeing. Their problems need to be solved in their home countries. We can´t solve them here. In reality they are not fleeing but are being used as "Human Shields".

Because of this reality when someone writes and speaks about the "plight of the innocents" I write or say, "So what!".

Peggy Noonan angered me plenty many times over the past 7 or 8 years, but I never stopped scanning her essays to see what was in there.

This one is a masterpiece. She captures the mood of the people of America perfectly and poetically and slams Obama right in the nuts in the process.

A must read.

Agree with #6, Noonan is far too kind to Obama.

Peggy needs to publiclally admit she was dead wrong about Obama. I am quite sure she has heard about David Brooks´ comments the other day. Until Peggy comes clean and looks at herself and her idiotic support of Obama, her words mean nada.

Good article, must read stuff. But JEEPERS! to quote GC Scott in Patton "A blind man could see it in a minute." Peggy is person number 1 in favor of optics. She, and her stupid ilk, endorsed this empty suit. Her next column should be "Why I was dead wrong about Obama, and why the major media is really a group of stupid, fatuous, pathetic and childish schoolgirls (both men and women).

Remember when, over and over, we were shown the picture of a twelve-year old Trayvon Martin, when at the time of the incident, Trayvon was actually 17 years old?

Talk about optics, in the few pictures that have been slipped out to the public on this invasion, I´ve seen a roomful of young adult men sprawled on the floor waiting for someone to do something for them. Meanwhile, you can only guess about the health conditions that are present in that place.

Then I saw another picture of older adult men crowded together in another space and acting like anyone would find their rude gestures amusing. We don´t.

And then we have the images of the wan children that Ms. Noonan wants us to empathize with. Those are the optics that Peggy wants to linger in our brains, ignoring all the nasty optics we´ve already seen and cause us great concern, i.e., public health and criminal activity.

Hugh Hewitt frequently "laments" "If I only had a producer", to whom do we lament, if we only had a media? How big would that story be. There are threads of it out there already.

We need to distinguish between children and teenagers. That picture on Drudge of the ´Death Train´ carrying ´children´ heading for the US was covered with mostly male teenagers, quite a few of them likely in their twenties. I can see treating children with charity but those teens should be sent packing back to where they came from. They´re old enough to be gang bangers and terrorists. There is no point in trying to sort them out. Send them all back.

Once liked, Miss Peggy has been on a black list for a number of years. She refuses to open her eyes to see the reality of what she has done. Until she can see and apologizes to all the lives she and others managed to inflict negative transformational change. She continues to be on that same list.

Nice article and it tempts me to temper my remarks, a little.

PN certainly took all the hopey/changey bait, along with other weak-minded crypto-Rinos and perhaps never read about O´s hospital/health law leadership support for killing babies in Illinois when a state senator. Now, THAT was a cause he could believe and work very hard for. As a card-carrying RC, PN ought to have seen the truth early from that. But, anyway...

PN works for the WSJ, who are in cahoots with the currently bent Chamber of Commerce leadership in having great faith in comprehensive amnesty and open borders. While she frets about dem party/leadership moralities, she cannot face the obvious structural disaster that awaits us on this issue. The party of death still promises all to all.

How can Peggy-Sue help but fail to see this deathly serious threat to our ability to control our country and thereby our President? This issue will swamp the boat. with Mr. Speaker´s help. As BO comprehends the ugly truth about his reign and "our" opinions, he will become more vindictive and perhaps angry enough to prove himself a pyrric victor all the way.

Perhaps, BOBO will conclude that WE did not appreciate him sufficiently and doubt our worth to live in his new world. Most of history´s self-aggrandizing megalomaniacs concluded similarly at their end.

PN and the WSJ have a great deal to walk back such a long way with little time to spare.

Did McDaniel wait too late to file?
Clarion Ledger [Jackson, MS], by Geoff Pender    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 8/26/2014 10:06:30 AM     Post Reply
Chris McDaniel´s first hurdle in his lawsuit to overturn his loss to Thad Cochran is a doozy: He may have waited too late to file it. As he worked for weeks building a case and campaigning that the election was stolen from him, McDaniel´s team said a 20-day deadline applies only to challenges of county and local elections, not a statewide U.S. Senate primary. Others, including the secretary of state, agreed with him. "Justice has no timetable," McDaniel said numerous times when questioned why it was taking so long to file his challenge of the June 24 GOP runoff for U.S. Senate. But

When voters go to the polls in primary elections across Florida on Tuesday most attention will be focused on the race in November for the state´s governor´s mansion, shaping up to be one of the most contested - and expensive - in recent memory. The outcome of Tuesday´s Republican and Democrat primaries is a foregone conclusion with incumbent Rick Scott and his main Democratic challenger, former Governor Charlie Crist, forecast to win by wide margins. The race between Scott and Crist in November is expected to be one of the nation´s most closely watched races because it offers Democrats a rare chance

A new poll of the Georgia Senate race by WSB-TV/Landmark shows Democrat Michelle Nunn leading Republican David Perdue by 7 points, 47-40. If the Dems flip this seat, their chances of maintaining control of the Senate will receive a huge boost. So should Republicans be alarmed by this poll? Probably not. Two polls from just a week ago give Perdue the lead by 9 points (Survey USA) and 7 points (Insider Advantage). In fact, Perdue does so well in four of the five most recent polls that the Real Clear Politics average for the race stands at Perdue +4.2 even with the

A crowd of family, friends, music stars, civil rights leaders and preachers gathered at the Friendly Temple Missionary Baptist Church on Monday for the memorial of Michael Brown, an 18-year-old robbery suspect who was fatally shot by local police officer Darren Wilson in Ferguson, Mo. Brown’s uncle, Pastor Charles Ewing, gave a passionate eulogy and made parallels of his nephew’s life and that of the life of Jesus Christ. “Michael Brown was 18 years old. He was shot around noon.

Peter Schorsch did something for our nation that took courage and conviction. He knew he’d be assaulted for it, and he did it anyway and then stood by his actions. Even bragged about it. He held to his convictions and said he’d do it again, no matter how unpopular it made him. Peter Schorsch did what we all thought about doing but didn’t have the guts. Peter Schorsch ended the pay-it-forward guilt chain at a Starbucks drive-thru.

President Barack Obama´s summer vacation off the Massachusetts coast has come to an end. The president returned to the White House late Sunday after spending two weeks with his family on the island of Martha´s Vineyard. What a break it turned out to be. His attempt at rest and relaxation was largely overtaken by events involving Islamic State militants in Iraq and Syria, including the videotaped execution of an American journalist they had been holding hostage, and the unrest in Ferguson, Missouri, following the fatal police shooting of an unarmed black man. Obama broke from his vacation to deliver statements on Iraq,

Near the height of annual harvesting and tourist season, California´s Napa Valley wineries were struck hard by Sunday´s magnitude-6.0 earthquake, but many reported surprisingly light damage. The early morning earthquake, whose epicenter was about 9 miles south of Napa, jolted residents and had winemakers scrambling to check their homes and businesses. "It was a very violent awakening," says Sandy Taylor, co-founder of the Taylor Family Winery in Napa. "It seemed to shake a long time. Our dogs and cats bailed out." Taylor says her winery, about a mile from the epicenter, lost one barrel of 2013 Chardonnay. "The finished bottles at the winery

Missing and unmentioned in the Post article are any complaints of mistreatment or racism by Officer Wilson from residents of Jennings and Ferguson prior to the Brown shooting.

Officer Wilson is the white Ferguson, Missouri policeman who shot unarmed black 18 year old robber Michael Brown in a confrontation in the middle of a neighborhood street minutes after Brown

With summer drawing to a close, parents are desperate. Camp’s over; the kids’ friends have left for more exotic destinations. A trip to the pool doesn’t yield the same excitement it did in June. And so many families are caving to demands for a trip to the amusement park. Whether you’re thinking of Six Flags, Sesame Place, Hershey Park or Dutch Wonderland: Don’t do it — you’ll be sorry.

Californians have moved to Colorado and Nevada. Massachusetts natives have moved to New Hampshire. New Yorkers have moved to North Carolina and Virginia — and, of course, have continued moving to Florida. Over the last few decades, residents of many traditionally liberal states have moved to states that were once more conservative. And this pattern has played an important role in helping the Democratic Party win the last two presidential elections and four of the last six. The growth of the Latino population and the social liberalism of the millennial generation may receive more attention, but the growing diaspora of blue-state

Martin Dempsey, speaking to reporters on board a military plane traveling to Afghanistan, said Sunday that he believes the Sunni insurgent group formerly known as ISIS is more of a regional threat and is not currently plotting or planning attacks against the U.S. or Europe. ISIS has repeatedly made threats to attack the U.S. through social and conventional media. Earlier this month, in a

Democrat Michelle Nunn is running ahead of David Perdue in the race for the U.S. Senate in Georgia. The WSB-TV poll found that Mrs. Nunn has 47 percent to 40 percent edge over Mr. Perdue. The libertarian candidate, Amanda Swafford, received 3 percent, and 10 percent of the respondents were undecided. The winner of the race will replace retiring Sen. Saxby Chambliss. Mrs. Nunn, the daughter of former Georgia Sen. Sam Nunn, is seen as one of Democrats best bets to flip control of a GOP-held seat. Republicans need to flip six seats to win back the Senate.

FERGUSON, Mo. — It was 1 a.m. and Michael Brown Jr. called his father, his voice trembling. He had seen something overpowering. In the thick gray clouds that lingered from a passing storm this past June, he made out an angel. And he saw Satan chasing the angel and the angel running into the face of God. Mr. Brown was a prankster, so his father and stepmother chuckled at first. “No, no, Dad! No!” the elder Mr. Brown remembered his son protesting. “I’m serious.” And the black teenager from this suburb of St. Louis, who had just graduated from high

The White House is bristling at suggestions President Obama is disconnected, checked out or out of touch. White House allies maintain that the storyline of a checked-out president is a myth drummed up by the media during the summer doldrums. “It’s bullshit,” said one former senior administration official. “This is a guy who reads 10 letters a day simply to keep in touch with the American people. He spends all his time thinking about the economy and improving lives of the American people. He’s constantly in touch.” Obama has been criticized as out of touch by critics and supporters, with the subject

Rep. Paul Ryan said the notion that the House could have unilaterally stopped Obamacare through a government shutdown last year was not a plausible idea to sell the country on. The Wisconsin Republican was addressing a passage from his new book on CBS’s “Face the Nation” in which he described last year’s push toward a government shutdown — in which House conservatives unsuccessfully tried to defund Obamacare — as a “suicide mission.” The purpose of the passage in the book is to try to unify the party, he said, noting that he held back a bit more at the time with party unity in mind. “I don’t think we can succeed if all we do is
