Krauthammer vs. Kirsten Powers
on Border Crisis: "There Is No
Answer But To Send Them Back"

Real Clear Politics, by Ian Schwartz

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 7/14/2014 10:14:12 PM

CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER: I think there are two separate issues with two separate answers. The one issue is controlling the border and not creating a magnet for the continuation of this catastrophe. The second is treating the kids who are here humanely, the best way that we can. For the first, there is no other answer than to send them back, to put them on buses, to have them come back to Central America, at which point it will be understood that you´re putting all your kids in danger for no reason. BRET BAIER: Address Kirsten´s concern -- KIRSTEN POWERS: They are in

Comments:
Kirsten Powers sounds like an adolescent living in another world. She says we can´t take 60,000 of them?? That is hardly the real number. She doesn´t give a flip about the impact of children and families in this country. Krauthammer is right. Countries from all over this world would just unload their children here. She´s out of her mind. The link below is the video of the entire segment.

Kirsten is a young Christian. Her compassion is from the heart. However, she is blurring the line between the government´s responsibility and the church´s responsibility.

Kirsten has no understanding of the care, feeding, housing, educating, etc. of children never having had children of her own. When she welcomes illegal children into her home to raise until they are adults, I may see her point. She is being unreasonable and doesn´t really care about the children. She has a political viewpoint and will continue to hammer on it.

I did not hear Kirsten express a willingness to take these "refugees" into her home and provide for their support.

Liberals appear to believe talking about something and expressing "the right intentions" somehow trumps personal action and actual. measurable results.

Talk is cheap Kirsten. Let´s see you put some skin in the game.

She was absolutely disgusting. Shouting Charles K. down. What a dirty trick. That has been Juan´s latest schtick and she´s started doingit. Neither of them is bright enough to let their facts and opinions be voiced when it is their turn. They know Charles K. is very effective and widely quoted.

Petulant powers is just another Sally Kohn.

I can never forget that she was Anthony Weiner´s inamorata and HE dumped HER.

Powers was raised as an Episcopalian but spent much of her early adult life as an atheist. In her mid-30s, she became an evangelical Christian. The process of conversion began when she dated a religious Christian man, who introduced her to the Redeemer Presbyterian Church in New York City and the teachings of its pastor, Tim Keller, and culminated in an experience in 2006 when, during a trip to Taiwan, she believes that she was visited by Jesus.[5] She has called her conversion "a bit of a mind bender" due to her political beliefs and former atheism, and prefers the term "orthodox Christian" over "evangelical" to describe herself, given the "cultural baggage" around the word "evangelical".[19]

Gotta be careful about "cultural baggage".

I have to say, I´m not too comfortable with this whole "send them back" thing.

Even Ted Cruz said “the most heartbreaking aspect of this is you look at some 90,000 little boys and little girls coming in illegally, the people bringing them in, they’re not well-meaning social workers. These are hardened, transnational, global carters. They are cruel, vicious men. These little boys and little girls are being subjected to physical violence, to sexual violence.”

Cruz says drug cartels “cut off and send back body parts” of children to try and force their families to pay a ransom.

“They will force one little boy or one little girl to cut off the fingers or ears of other little boys or little girls,” and that children immigrating to the U.S. had been “maimed.”

I mean, seriously... I´m not sure these kids need to be sent back.

If the state of Iowa sent 60,000 kids to California for the nice weather, would we say, yeah, these kids deserve nice weather. No, we would send then back to Iowa where they belong. These kids do not belong here -- they are here to mooch and here for political gain of the Dimocrats.

I don´t want our country to be the toilet where all the trash is dumped just because we have a nicer toilet than most places. That´s what we have become -- the third world´s toilet. Wait until these kids show up in your neighborhood schools and crowd out the American kids. Tell me how you feel then. People who don´t want to send them back must not have much experience in communities where they have taken over.

Of course the only answer is to send them back. They will keep coming unless they get the idea that their trip will be in vain.

Obama wants to overwhelm our system ala Cloward-Piven, so it will not stop for another 2 years, at least.

I heard Kirsten say that she was with Brit Hume at the detention center with the children. What a disappointment Hume is. I believe those children were told what to say to the press so that they would be allowed to stay.

Powers played the part of the elite bleeding heart liberal and the Krauthammer was right all the way around. Every time Juan opens up his mouth he defends Obama, doing that must be in Juan´s employment contract as he can´t be that stupid, can he?

This is the same pundit who debated the liberal black professor when BOR was out of town. At the end of the debate the professor (sorry, forget his name but most know him) He actually told Williams to go back and sit on the porch. Everyone was up in arms at such a statement. Apparently everyone but JW....he continues to lick the Dark Won´s boots to make them shine. And as bited & has been noticed, he is raising his voice more frequently these days to defend his messiah.

Why doesn´t Kirsten have any children of her own?
Too busy with her career?
In Paris the Roma were intentionally maiming their own children for begging.
These cartels may do the same.
That does not mean we do not send them back.
The trains carrying these children go the other way-take the incentive out.
The young male criminals and terrorists are using them for cover.
This is an INVASION and has to be handled as such.

A Virginia congressman characterized the rockets being fired into Israel by Hamas as “fairly feckless,” pointing to “too many” Palestinian deaths as the problem. “Well, Israel has the overwhelming support of the American Congress. There are a few of us who feel that, you know, a cease-fire is the only way to go, and it’s in Israel’s, as well as the Palestinians’ interest to have a cease-fire,” Rep. Jim Moran (D-Va.) said on MSNBC last night. “Lives are of value. And there are going to be too many innocent Palestinians killed in this. I don’t think that there are going to be

The surge of illegal aliens–and in particular unaccompanied minors from Central America–across the border in Texas has started a debate in which more than immigration reform seems to be stake. While most conservatives are decrying the situation as the result of President Obama’s mistakes, some liberals are focusing on what they believe is the lack of compassion for the children that is being forgotten amid the politics. But as the plight of these desperate kids becomes publicized, Americans are being asked to make a choice between their charitable instincts and the rule of law. That’s the conceit of a good deal

"Every political cause has a narrative. And every narrative has a plot." Over lunch in Georgetown last month, a top Democratic spokesman, somebody who works intimately with both the White House and Hillary Rodham Clinton´s team, wanted me to understand his frustration with President Obama. He said every plot has a hero. And every hero leaps overwhelming obstacles to accomplish a goal. "Who´s the hero in the White House narrative?" the Democrat asked. I shrugged; "Barack Obama." Aren´t all elections about the candidate, and all White Houses about the president? The Democrat shook his head. "That´s the problem with this

The First Lady of these United States has declared war on Chick-fil-A. It seems the home of plump juicy breasts and hot buttered buns has run afoul of the new Smart Snacks in School program. The program is a component of Mrs. Obama’s Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. The new government regulations require snack items served in public schools to have less than two hundred calories. That includes vending machines, lunch rooms and other campus food venues. And that’s really bad news for kids at South Carolina’s Socastee High School. They’ve just learned they will no longer be allowed to buy Chick-fil-A

A billionaire tech investor says he has enough backing to put on the ballot a plan to split California into six states. Timothy Draper, a venture capitalist founder of a Silicon Valley-based venture capital firm that has invested in such tech companies as Twitter, HotMail, Skype and Tesla, told Reuters he has the 808,000 signatures needed on a petition to force the measure onto a public referendum in November 2016. Under the far-fetched plan, one state would be called "Silicon Valley" and would include the tech mecca, as well as San Francisco. "California needs a reboot," Draper, who has spent

On October, 2011, amid a lethargic economic recovery, President Barack Obama – a man who prided himself on ending wars, not starting them – touted his foreign policy successes. Beyond the successful raid that resulted in the death of Osama bin Laden, Obama noted that he had successfully solved two thorny international puzzles; ending the war in Iraq and successfully prosecuting a brief campaign to stem the violence in Libya. In a speech in the White House, the president made the case for his own competency within an announcement regarding the beginning of the full withdrawal of American troops from the

A new "N-word" -- "nativist" -- has made its way into the immigration debate. Americans who want the influx of Central American children returned to their homes are "nativist" and "isolationist," says Rep. Linda Sanchez (D-Calif.), a member of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus. "As the United States, as a world leader, we are very good about telling other countries that they must accept refugees from Syria or Ethiopia or Darfur, but when it comes to a humanitarian crisis on our own border -- involving children, no less -- you hear this nativist, isolationist voices saying that, oh, just ship them all back,

Barack Obama met with a group of immigration activists two weeks ago. He told a group of radicals, “In another life, I’d be on the other side of the table.” The Washington Post reported: Two weeks ago, with Republicans criticizing the administration’s handling of the border crisis, Obama gathered advocates for another private meeting at the White House. The session grew heated when some of them criticized the administration’s tough posture toward the children on the border, according to several people who attended. Marshall Fitz, immigration policy director at the Center for American Progress, said that Obama, a former community organizer, told the group

As John Kerry travels from country to country on various diplomatic missions as secretary of state (almost half a million miles so far), he often addresses the staff and their families at the U.S. embassies in the countries he visits. Remarks at these informal gatherings are often more casual than the usual speeches or press appearances, and Kerry often jokes with the staff and recognizes employees of long standing with the State Department. Monday, Kerry had one such opportunity in Vienna, Austria, the last stop on his most recent trip, and towards the end of his talk he recalled his

Winter reports that several dead children have been discovered “washed up along the riverbank” of the Rio Grande, but fails to note that there have been no reports by the Obama administration on this.

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security.

Where is the red line of impeachment? In theory, a red line might be located somewhere on a list of impeachable offenses – perhaps at the point where a certain number of transgressions is exceeded, or next to a specific instance because of its significance or impact. In reality, though, that red line exists along a spectrum of “political will.” As Andrew McCarthy explained: “You can have a thousand provable impeachable offenses, but before Congress may remove the president from power, there must be strong popular support – a public will that cuts across partisan and ideological lines.”
