Flow of Central American immigrants
through Mexico shows no signs of slowing

Associated Press, by Staff

CIUDAD HIDALGO, Mexico – Mexico is promising to stem the flow of Central American migrants to the United States by tightening control at its notoriously porous Guatemalan border. But messages from the country´s top two leaders in little more than a week have provided few details on how. And the scene on the ground is business as usual. Dozens of Central Americans who paid $1.50 a head could be seen this week crossing the broad Suchiate River on improvised rafts of inner tubes and wooden boards, in full view of Mexican police on the shore and immigration agents posted on

Like I´ve said before, $3.7B now, $6B in 6 months; $14B next year; until it reaches $1T for each and every year.

WHAT Is Obama doing to stop this? Nothing, to the contrary, he is encouraging it. His plans for this country are the same plans as ISLAM has for this country.

His Democrat supporters see any criticism as racism, so THEY aren´t going to say anything. It´s all a game for them of political defeat for the Republican party economically crushing the enemy.

Even if the House gets a bill out to return them and the Senate passes it and obmam signs it doesn´t mean any thing. The Democrats will do what it takes to get rid of the story and the msm will help with those optics. But we all know laws mean nothing to obama and the Democrats the return of the illegal aliens will be slow walked so as to be minuscule compared to flood coming in. They get rid of the story and get to keep a majority of the illegals. We are being invaded by illegal aliens and the Democrats are out saying the border is secure. Good grief this is worse than any Twilight Zone episode.

Except for doltish, clueless Harry Reid, the Democrats and the President are desperate to get this story out of the news. What Obama and his not-so-smart-after-all advisers expected from this border plan was not what they ended up with. None of them expected the thousands and thousands who have come and are still coming. Now, it´s up to the GOP in the House and the Senate to force Obama´s signature. He will harumph and complain, but he will sign a bill to put an end to this disaster.

#1 3.7b now or EVER is ludicrous in any measure. Sending the current influx might cost 1-2m and I´m being generous with air fair and the cost of delousing and sanitizing the aircraft. Getting the remaining millions who were here before this disaster still wouldn´t cost $1b. This administration has spent so wildly that the perception of the difference between million and billion has become warped.

Obama is forcing taxpayers to sign a blank check. The Federal Govt claims they don´t know how many illegals are here, or how many will be coming. Mind you, as I type this, illegals are being ´secretly´ distributed all around our country. You and I don´t have a right to know how many - or where. We are, however, required to foot the bill without receiving any factual answers to our questions, much less a truthful explanation.

Obama is forcing taxpayers to financially support each and every man, woman and child that has broken into our country, for this generation, and probably the next. The possibility exists that the family members of each illegal will want to come here, too, and those expenses will become your and my responsibility. How do we financially forecast?

Never mind that today, jobs are currently more rare than hen´s teeth. Nevermind that Obama is gutting our military, and that we have returning Veteran´s who should have first dibs on jobs upon their return. Nevermind that illegals receive the best of health care, but our Veteran´s die waiting to access theirs. The list goes on and on.

I don´t believe for a second this ´humanitarian crisis´ is coincidence. I believe it was carefully orchestrated.

If Rick Perry, in defiance of 0bama, would send the Texas National Guard to the border, fully armed, and use the Air National Guard fighter jets to make low flying runs just inside the border, he would be a shoe-in for president in 2016. If 0bama tried to stop him, Perry could call him out and force him to take ownership of the mess. It´s a win-win for Perry and the Republicans.

Jan Brewer could then do the same in Arizona and perhaps New Mexico and California would be forced by their citizens to join in.

If I can come up with this plan, why can´t Perry? Or any other Republican "leader" for that matter.

Just wait until little 11 year old Pablo or Juan or Maria makes it all the way to their aunt´s free apartment in the public housing project in L.A., NY, St. Louis, or where ever and then calls home to Mamachita on the free Obama-phone --- that´s when Mama gets on the bus north with her other 4 brats. Expect 1 million by year´s end.

And calling out the national Guard will do what? These people have been told to just lie down when confronted by any American in a uniform. The National Guard is going to shoot them? You think they believe that? Not happening. Better to grab a few thousand and send them back!

It will only stop when Pablo and his friends show up back where they came from with wild stories about the round trip.

The corrupt Mexican Government is engaged in an "act of war" against the national sovereignty of The United States by allowing these tens of thousands of illegal alien "invaders" "free passage" through their territory.

Maybe it´s time our Department of Defense thought seriously about reactivating and reconstituting Brigadier General John J. Pershing´s old 8th Brigade and the it´s supporting units of the punitive Mexican Expeditionary Force of 1916.

We need to cut off diplomatic relations with Mexico, and the countries that are exporting their people. Then we need to stop any money transfers from the US t thee countries. If someone comes over from Mexico they are sent back with a bill for Mexico not performing their sovereign duties. No more aid to these countries, no nada.

How is "lobbing" children, along with MS-13 members, drug traffickers, terrorists, and others into our country from Mexico that much different from lobbing rockets into Israel from the Gaza strip? The difference that I see is that traitors our government are facilitating it.

"through Mexico" is operative here. This invasion, the act of war and treason that it is, could not happen without the complicity of the governments of Mexico and other Central American nations. It is time to treat this assault on our borders accordingly.

It´s pretty clear that we can´t wait or depend on our government to do anything about this invasion. It´s going to take a coming together of True Americans to overcome what our own government in accord with the governments of South America are doing to US.

Illegals gather together in our city streets and DEMAND that OUR government meet their needs. They boycott services - refusing to support the very country that has given them refuge, housing, food, healthcare and more. They care not that the education of their children has come at the expense of the education of ours. They will burn OUR American Flag in our very streets while they shout obscenities at any American who disagrees with them. Their middle finger is their salute to us TRUE AMERICANS.

It is time that WE gather in our city streets and demand that OUR government meet OUR demands - TO SEAL OUR SOUTHERN BORDER AND SEND THOSE WHO HAVE VIOLATED OUR IMMIGRATION LAWS BACK WHERE THEY CAME FROM. Then we need to boycott everything from Mexico, including travel. It might take a while, but we are a powerful force. We just need to start.

Americans now need to get organized to protect our country; from the invaders coming in from the southern border and from the government that isn´t doing its job. I´m ready as I know millions of Americans are.

The House of Representatives should not give Obama any money, as he will just use it to hire a bunch of leftist lawyers, most coming out of the very liberal ethnic and immigrant advocacy groups allied to the liberal Democrats as new immigration court judges, along with immigration lawyers to represent illegal aliens.Those judges and lawyers are about the last people who are going to facilitate the US Government removing illegal aliens from the USA.

The tens of millions of illegal aliens along with the new illegal aliens coming into the USA are forming huge communities inside the big liberal Democrat run cities that serve as cover for the international drug cartels and other foreign criminals to operate in the USA. The people who bring the cartel´s illicit drugs into the USA and who transport those drugs all over the USA are almost all either deportable permanent resident aliens (green card holders) or illegal aliens.

Big time liberal Democrats have continuously disparaged and undermined the immigration laws and are now announcing to the world that the borders are open and illegal aliens are welcome in the USA. Things are going to get a lot worse before they get better. This is all political to generate a huge number of new foreign born voters for the liberal Democrats in the years ahead. The November election is going to be very important to the future of the country.

As Sanctions Pile Up, Russians’
Alarm Grows Over Putin’s Tactics
New York Times, by Neil MacFarquhar    Original Article

MOSCOW — Russia, facing the toughest round of Western sanctions imposed since the Ukraine crisis erupted, has adopted a nonchalant public stance, with President Vladimir V. Putin emphasizing the importance of self-reliance and a new poll released Tuesday indicating a “What, me worry?” attitude among the bulk of the population. But beneath that calm facade, there is growing alarm in Russia that the festering turmoil in Ukraine and the new round of far more punitive sanctions — announced Tuesday by both European nations and the United States — will have an impact on Russia’s relations with the West for years to

In July, Wendy Davis went on a seven-city campaign tour to call attention to Greg Abbott’s “decision to keep explosive chemical locations secret from parents.” In case you weren’t following along, Abbott decided in May to block public access to information about hazardous chemicals stored at certain facilities, including fertilizer plants like the one that exploded in West last year. Quizzed by reporters later, Abbott said citizens need only “drive around” their neighborhoods and ask companies for the information. It was a hilarious and stupid thing to say.

MEXICO CITY–Jerry Brown, California’s Democratic governor, waded into the highly partisan immigration debate, telling reporters in Mexico’s capital Tuesday evening that “whatever can be done by a mere governor” to shelter unaccompanied child immigrants, “will be done.” Mr. Brown’s pledge came after convening a meeting on the issue in Mexico City with Catholic bishops from Los Angeles, Mexico and Guatemala. Diplomats from Mexico and Guatemala also joined Mr. Brown, as did a religious leader from El Salvador. “Certainly I’d do everything I could to make sure California will do its part to shelter any young children that are in need of protection,”

The Secret Weapon to Win

One of the most underappreciated attributes in politics is a candidate´s authenticity. In an era when politicians´ talking points are scripted, and they worry about a gaffe going viral, the candidate who comes across as genuine holds a real advantage. It´s one reason why Barack Obama was able to defeat Hillary Clinton, why Mitt Romney struggled to capitalize on a favorable environment in 2012, and why someone like New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is able to use his force of personality to overcome ideological differences with both Democrats and conservatives. And the authenticity factor has played a critical role in this

Nero fiddled while Rome burned. On Saturday, President Obama played golf while his foreign policy, and that of the nation he leads, was going up in smoke. Literally. Saturday was the day the State Department ordered the evacuation of the U.S. Embassy in Libya. Only three years ago, Obama helped NATO allies overthrow Moammar Kadafi as part of his “lead from behind” doctrine, but he has done little to help the resulting democratic government secure its authority. Not only did the U.S. not support sending international peacekeepers, it didn´t mount a serious program to train a new Libyan army. The

One of the ongoing debates about policy formation in Washington which has become far more prominent since the passage of Obamacare is the role of the Congressional Budget Office, and the weight given its estimates and predictions for the ramifications of legislation. CBO has always been at the center of a debate about how much we should trust these estimates and how much legislators should rely on them in crafting policy. The larger the legislation, the more moving parts it has, the more difficult it is to calculate the fiscal and economy-wide impacts. In the case of Obamacare, the sheer largeness

Like many on the right, Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer is politically opposed to impeaching President Barack Obama. But on Tuesday, he declared that legally, the rumored White House order granting amnesty to as many as 6 million illegal immigrants “would be an impeachable offense” — and Obama’s talk of impeachment may be a way to preempt that pushback. Krauthammer spoke with Fox News’s Bret Baier on a panel with The Hill’s A.B. Stoddard and Fox News contributor Juan Williams.

Israel unleashed its heaviest bombardment in its three-week-old campaign against Hamas in Gaza on Tuesday as the Obama administration battled the growing perception among Israelis that Secretary of State John F. Kerry is a hapless bumbler in search of a cosmetic truce. Diplomatic efforts remained stalled despite a death toll that Palestinian officials said rose above 1,200 on Tuesday. The shadowy leader of the Hamas military wing said his group will not cease fire until an economic embargo is ended and other demands are met. After his latest round of mediation failed to achieve a cease-fire, Mr. Kerry has been

President Obama demanded that Israel agree to a one-sided cease-fire during a heated phone conversation with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, according to a report aired on Israeli TV Tuesday. Both leaders quickly denounced the purported transcript of their private discussion as fake. But the TV channel that obtained it, state-run Channel 1, stood by its account. In one bitter exchange, Obama declared that Qatar and Turkey — Hamas’ biggest international supporters — would mediate with the terrorists on Israel’s behalf, according to the TV channel. “I trust Qatar and Turkey.

Inside Hoboken’s combined junior-senior high school is a storage closet. Behind the locked door, some mothballed laptop computers are strewn among brown cardboard boxes. Others are stacked one atop another. Dozens more are stored on mobile computer carts, many of them on their last legs. That’s all that remains from a failed experiment to assign every student a laptop at Hoboken Junior Senior High School.

Former Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura joined the “CBS This Morning” co-hosts Wednesday to discuss the details of his legal battle with a former U.S. sniper. On Tuesday a federal jury awarded Jesse Ventura $1.8 million in his case against Kyle’s widow. The former governor told CBS: “I’m already damaged. I can’t go to a SEAL reunion anymore.

All I wanted to do was clear my name and it has nothing to do with a widow or anything like that.

Do not eat or drink in front of Muslims, and learn more about their religion. That’s the directive that has gone out to active duty military personnel at the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences, a Department of Defense medical and graduate school in Bethesda, Md.

In Kansas City today, President Obama complained that Republicans continued to oppose his agenda in Congress. “C’mon and help out a bit,” he said, addressing the GOP. “Stop bein’ mad all the time. Stop just hatin’ all the time. C’mon, let’s get some work done together.” Obama said that he still had a lot of work to do, including spending on roads and bridges, resources for fighting wildfires, and addressing the border crisis. “I know they’re not that happy that I’m president, but that’s ok,” he added. “I’ve only got a couple years left, let’s get some work done.

Fox News’s Geraldo Rivera sniped at conservative blogger Matt Drudge over his website The Drudge Report’s emphasis on news regarding the U.S.-Mexico border. “Shame on Drudge,” Geraldo tweeted Wednesday. “His authoritative website has gone hysterical on issue of immigrant children. 14 stories like ‘Could Ebola sneak across?’” Drudge has admittedly placed an emphasis on linking to stories concerning the border. “I’m more obsessed with what’s going on with the border these days,” he said in a recent interview. The “Could Ebola sneak across” link Rivera specifically referred to in his tweet directs Drudge readers to an article at the right-wing World Net Daily.
