Obama’s ‘blank check’
rejected as border solution

Washington Times, by Ben Wolfgang

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 7/13/2014 9:36:19 PM

Not even a week after it was offered, President Obama’s $3.7 billion plan to deal with the growing crisis along the U.S.-Mexico border appears all but dead, with Republican lawmakers Sunday decrying the administration’s “blank check” proposal and instead calling for a more targeted response centered on greater border security. Even Texas Gov. Rick Perry, personally recruited by the president to persuade Republicans to support the measure, threw cold water on the idea. He said the president doesn’t need that much money and instead should send National Guard troops to secure the border. The apparent defeat caps a whirlwind several days

Comments:
A photo-op meeting with 0bama means that he "recruited" Gov. Rick Perry to help pass this idea on? I don´t think so. I would give no money and let the interfering churches pay for this neverending dRATS nightmare to our political system.

Classic Democrat solution to any problem. Throw money. No planning. No strategy. No accountability. No measurable results. Just throw money.

Yeah, if he gets 4 billion for pointing guns at children he´ll just do it again. He may anyway, but let´s keep him in this hostage negotiation as long as possible.

As it stands now, if Congress gives Obama all that money, it would go to liberal Democrat aligned organizations to take care of and resettle the vast majority of the current young illegal alien influx all over the USA, and to leftist immigration lawyers that Obama would hire as immigration judges and to represent illegal aliens, who are in reality an esoteric special interest that is bound to clog up the immigration court system with more legalities, to keep as many poor and uneducated illegal aliens in the USA as they possibly could with no end in sight.

Any time you hear a liberal Democrat say the word "comprehensive" in connection with illegal immigration they are using the liberal Democrat political code word for a massive amnesty for up to 20 million illegal aliens, who after being legalized, would gain the right to bring their close foreign relatives into the USA in unlimited numbers, thus legalizing, and making much bigger the flow of young illegal aliens coming over the borderline that would certainly amount to over ten million additional poor and uneducated aliens before everything was said and done.

Dear Lord we can only hope. To give this creature anything would be utterly ridiculous. He has stolen more than enough money...he could probably by his own personal 747 if he desired. Of course, he wouldn´t be able to fly it, but he has the keys so he might taxi wherever he wants to wander. The image of the plane in the ditch does make one a tad giggly. He might also give the ´children´ a special ride on his plane in order to get them back to their country of origin.

Now that was a tough opportunity to turn down.

How Hillary and Bill Clinton
Raised $1.4 Billion
Time Magazine, by Alexander Ho & Pratheek Rebala *    Original Article

There are great American political fundraisers. And then there are Hillary and Bill Clinton, the first couple of American political fundraising. Few in American history have collected and benefited from so much money in so many ways over such a long period of time. Since they arrived on the national political scene 32 years ago, the Clintons have attracted at least $1.4 billion in contributions, according to a review of public records by TIME (Snip) Much of the money, raised through two Senate and three Presidential campaigns, was gathered together in small checks by an extensive network of donors and fundraisers.

Two years ago we were all going about our daily business blissfully unaware that our planet almost plunged into global catastrophe. A recent revelation by NASA explains how on July 23, 2012 Earth had a near miss with a solar flare, or Coronal Mass Ejection (CME), from the most powerful solar storm on the sun in over 150 years, but nobody decided to mention it. Err, what? Well that’s a sobering bit of news. “If it had hit, we would still be picking up the pieces,” says Daniel Baker of the University of Colorado. We managed to just avoid the event through lucky timing as the sun’s aim narrowly turned away from Earth.

Feds announce maximum penalties
or not buying health insurance
Associated Press, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 7/25/2014 12:45:53 AM     Post Reply
Miami - Federal officials have capped the amount of money scofflaws will be forced to pay if they don't buy insurance this year at $2,448 per person and $12,240 for a family of five. The amount is equal to the national average annual premium for a bronze level health plan. But only those with an income above about a quarter of a million dollars would benefit from the cap. Those making less would still have to pay as much as 1 percent of their annual income. The penalty for the first year starts at $95 per adult or $47.50 per child under 18.

Skateboarder, friends sought by cops

A skateboarder and four young pals emerged Wednesday as the unlikely suspects who eluded around-the-clock NYPD security to scale the venerable Brooklyn Bridge and raise two white flags. While cops had no real leads in the second day of their probe, the five youths wanted for questioning were described as in their late teens or early 20s, a source told the Daily News. There’s still no explanation for the removal of two U.S. flags or the bizarre substitution of two bleached-white American flags left flying above the bridge’s two towers Tuesday. New Yorkers on the bridge amid ramped-up security Wednesday were still wondering

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

Imperial, Pa. - The Dick´s Sporting Goods chain has laid off 478 Professional Golfers´ Association teaching pros months after the company reported that sales of golf gear are dwindling. Based in the Pittsburgh suburb of Findlay Township, Dick´s operates more than 500 stores nationwide, most under the Dick´s name. Those stores sell golf equipment as do 79 stores the chain operates under the Golf Galaxy name. Dick´s still employs PGA pros at its Golf Galaxy stores, but not at Dick´s locations. “We had some internal restructuring that affected the Dick´s stores,” Matt Trimbur, the PGA pro at the Golf Galaxy

Kim Jong-un and Russian Vladimir Putin strengthened economic ties Friday by opening a $250 million Russian-funded addition to the port of Rajin in northeast North Korean. “The successful reconstruction of the Rajin-Khasan railway section and the completion of Wharf No. 3 of Rajin Port are precious products of the vitality of the Moscow Declaration signed by leader Kim Jong Il and President V. [Putin]”, said Jon Kil Su, minister of Railways for North Korea, during the opening ceremony, the North Korean watchdog NKnews.org reported Thursday.

Central American leaders
blame U.S. for border crisis
Washington Times, by S.A. Miller    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 7/24/2014 10:10:07 PM     Post Reply
A day before meeting with President Obama at the White House to discuss the border crisis, the presidents of Honduras and Guatemala blamed the wave of unaccompanied children inundating the U.S. on American foreign policy and on gridlock in Congress over immigration reform. Honduran President Juan Orlando Hernandez said ambiguity in Washington’s immigration debate has helped human smugglers, called “coyotes,” convince Central Americans that they can stay in the U.S. if they make the long, illegal journey. “That is a situation that the coyotes are very perversely taking very much an opportunity to exploit,”

European court says CIA

Warsaw - The CIA ran a secret jail on Polish soil, the European Court of Human Rights ruled on Thursday, piling pressure on Poland, one of Washington´s closest allies, to break its long silence about the global programme for detaining al Qaeda suspects. The court said it had been established that the CIA used a facility in a northern Polish forest, code named "Quartz", as a hub in its network for interrogating suspected al Qaeda operatives rounded up after the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks. Poland has always denied that the CIA had a jail on its territory, even as leaks from former U.S. intelligence officials, and a Senate investigation, brought more and more

UN Human Rights Council´s
unbridled hypocrisy toward Israel
Jerusalem Post [Israel], by Editorial    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 7/24/2014 9:59:17 AM     Post Reply
The UN Human Rights Council’s ludicrous decision on Wednesday to open an international inquiry into Israeli violations that may have been committed during Operation Protective Edge in Gaza is outrageously hypocritical. This travesty of justice should be rejected outright by decent people and nations everywhere, as the Prime Minister’s Office in Jerusalem beseeched. Instead of backing Israel’s justifiable right as a democratic state to respond forcefully to clear human rights violations by Gaza’s Hamas rulers both before and during the current military campaign, the international forum in Geneva chose to side with the terrorists.

Baghdad - Iraq’s leaders selected Fouad Massoum, a longtime Kurdish politician and former guerrilla fighter who took up arms against Saddam Hussein’s regime, on Thursday as the country’s new president, an important step in forming a new government that the international community and Iraq’s religious authorities have called for and described as crucial to confronting a growing Sunni insurgency. Mr. Massoum, 76, replaces Jalal Talabani, who has been president since 2005 and was seen as a rare unifying figure among Iraq’s many factions but has been largely absent from the political scene since suffering a stroke in late 2012.

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

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.

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.

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.

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
