Congresswoman: Cut Foreign
Aid To Pay For Children

Associated Press, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:Ribicon, 7/13/2014 11:57:19 PM

Fort Sill, Okla. - A Republican congresswoman from Tennessee said the U.S. should cut aid to countries that are home to thousands of children who have crossed the border illegally to pay for the cost of caring for them. Rep. Marsha Blackburn made the comments Saturday after touring a temporary shelter at the Fort Sill Army Post near Lawton where more than 1,100 of the children are housed. Republican Rep. Jim Bridenstine of Oklahoma also toured the facility. Blackburn said Central American countries that the child immigrants are fleeing should be forced to bear the cost of paying for them

Comments:
Absolutely. Then cut it some more, because we are broke.

Marsha Blackburn´s one of the few who are reliably on the right side of things.

If you really want to get the attention of those banana republics the US should tell them that all visas issued to government officials and citizens of those countries will be cancelled unless their foreign ministers come to Washington, D.C. and agree to repatriation treaties stating that they will issue emergency travel documents to all their citizens found illegally in the USA and will immediately repatriate all their citizens under age 21 that the USA wants to send back home.

Barry wants around $4B.
Wasteful foreign aid to these countries doesn´t even reach $1B.
Take the rest out of the Home No Security, NSA, and No Justice departments. Toss in the EPA as well.

Pulling their CAFTA free trade privileges ought to really get their attention. Tariffs up the wazoo on Central American good from all net shippers of illegals.

Or better still, a massive tax on remittances to these hellholes. That ought to stop the money stream these governments live off of real quick.

Thank you Marsha.

Zippy wants $3.7 Billion with a "B" which includes a little amount for wildfires in CA to make Congress feel guilty. Plus he sends millions to improve conditions in countries they just left. And wants you to work and pay taxes for cradle to grave welfare for those that just crossed the border.

We need to cut all foreign aid and send the National Guard to the border.

In El Salvador´s case, pull their dollarization privileges too. No more using the U.S. dollar as the national currency, go back to toilet-paper money until the illegal stream stops.

TSA fee hike takes effect today
Star-Ledger [Newark, NJ], by Steve Strunsky    Original Article
Posted By: Ribicon- 7/21/2014 2:53:27 PM     Post Reply
Newark — The Transportation Security Administration fee that gets added to the cost of an airline ticket more than doubles today, with passengers now paying $5.60 each way to finance X-rays, pat-downs and other forms of airport screening. The increase in the fee, from $2.50 each way, will generate an estimated $4 billion in additional funds over the next 10 years to pay for airport security. Connecting flights of four hours or more will be treated as separate flights, at a cost of $5 each. Congress approved the fee hike in December.

The Obama administration last week announced plans to sell leases for nearly 344,000 acres of seafloor off the New Jersey coastline to companies that want to build wind energy turbines, a significant step toward the development of wind farms off the Jersey Shore. The area extends from Cape May Court House north for 60 miles to Barnegat, at least seven miles offshore.

The opening of a new lap dancing club in Liverpool’s gay quarter could lead to a rise in homophobic hate crime, it has been claimed. Local residents and businesses fiercely opposed an application to site the venue in Stanley Street at the heart of the district claiming it could lead to a culture clash between gay revellers and heterosexual all-male stag parties undermining the area’s growing reputation as a safe destination for the LGBT community.

Children were taught that all Christians are liars and attempts were made to introduce Sharia law in classrooms as part of an alleged ´Trojan Horse´ takeover plot of Birmingham schools, an inquiry has found. The inquiry commissioned by Birmingham City Council found evidence of religious extremism in 13 schools as school governors and teachers tried to promote and enforce radical Islamic values. Schools put up posters warning children that if they didn´t pray they would "go to hell", Christmas was cancelled and girls were taught that women who refused to have sex with their husbands would be "punished" by angels

Los Angeles — Laura Whitney and her husband, Michael Korte, don´t know whether they´re being good citizens during a drought or scofflaws. On the same day the state approved mandatory outdoor watering restrictions with the threat of $500 fines, the Southern California couple received a letter from their city threatening a $500 penalty for not watering their brown lawn. It´s brown because of their conservation, which, besides a twice-a-week lawn watering regimen, includes shorter showers and larger loads of laundry.

The Government needs to make it “easier and cheaper” for councils to bring in lower speed limits to reduce the number of cyclists killed Britain’s road, an influential group of MPs has said. The call for more 20mph speed limits by the Transport Select Committee was accompanied by a demand for a five-fold increase in cycling infrastructure spending to cut casualties. The policy recommendations come in a major new report into cycling safety released today. It argues for a “cultural change” to ease the tensions between motorists and cyclists and calls for the appointment of a “cycling tsar” to coordinate policy

At a political event in Wilmington, Delaware, on Thursday, President Obama devoted only 40 seconds to the shooting down of the Malaysian airline, his first statement to the world following the news. His emotionless reference to the attack as ‘a terrible tragedy’ seemed disconnected from the horrific moment, particularly as he immediately reverted to script to praise his administration and criticise Republicans. It was a far cry from President Reagan’s 1983 fierce denunciation of the Soviet shooting down of a Korean airliner as a ‘crime against humanity’. But it only confirmed the chaos into which US foreign policy has descended since the summer

Convinced that their region has suffered as much Obama administration meddling as it can possibly stand, Israel and Egypt took the extraordinary step earlier this week of jointly rejecting requests by US Secretary of State John Kerry to involve himself in ceasefire talks with the terrorist group Hamas. Israeli and Egyptian diplomats both claim Egyptian efforts to mediate a ceasefire between Israel and Hamas collapsed as a direct result of Secretary Kerry’s announcement he was prepared to join the talks. He apparently made the announcement without first consulting either of the parties. The diplomats are convinced that their own

A pernicious, little-known Obama administration policy – one that that incentivizes adult illegal immigrants to use children as human shields to escape arrest and deportation at the border – largely has escaped the media’s notice. This same policy is driving the historic surge of children at the border, as everyone from coyotes to illegal immigrant adults already in America seeks to use children to guarantee their safe passage into the country, or to protect them from deportation if they are illegally living here. The flood of illegal immigrant children, piling up like human debris on the US border, won’t stop

WASHINGTON— President Barack Obama said Joe Biden would make a "superb" president, but questioned whether his vice president or potential rival Hillary Clinton would want to endure another campaign for the White House, a media report Monday said. Obama, in an interview with the New Yorker, said Biden "has seen the job up close, he knows what the job entails. He understands how to separate what´s really important from what´s less important. I think he´s got great people skills. He enjoys politics, and he´s got important relationships up on the Hill (in Congress) that would serve him well." "Joe would

LOS ANGELES — Actor James Garner, whose whimsical style in the 1950s TV Western “Maverick” led to a stellar career in TV and films such as “The Rockford Files” and his Oscar-nominated “Murphy’s Romance,” has died, police said. He was 86. He was found dead of natural causes at his home in the Brentwood area of Los Angeles Saturday evening, Los Angeles police officer Alonzo Iniquez said early Sunday. Police responded to a call around 8 p.m. PDT and confirmed Garner’s identity from family members, Iniquez told The Associated Press. There was no immediate word on a more specific cause of death. Garner had suffered a stroke in May 2008, just weeks after his 80th birthday.
