House moving quickly on border
Politico, by Seung Min Kim & Jake Sherman

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 7/16/2014 5:35:43 AM

House Republicans are moving quickly to address the growing humanitarian crisis on the southern border, possibly holding votes as soon as next week. As Congress moves closer to the monthlong August recess, the speedy action sends a clear message to Senate Democrats: Take it or leave it. Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio), incoming Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) and a group of top lawmakers working on the border crisis are set to file a bill that very closely mirrors the legislation crafted by Texas lawmakers Sen. John Cornyn, a Republican, and Democratic Rep. Henry Cuellar.

I disagree, #1. Obama is desperate to get the border chaos off the front pages and out of leadoff television news. The plan was never to have resulted in what´s happening now. The idea was to get enough people coming across to attract a lot of attention, so that when the GOP and border states objected, the administration and the Dem machine could portray dissenters as heartless, racist and haters. But, they lost control. There is now a tsunami of drug members, gangs, pregnant women, toddlers, all requiring transportation, food and shelter and becoming very expensive to care for. Now, the poison arrows are aimed at the feckless president and his minions. This wasn´t the plan. Obama will sign any bill that at least begins to slow and eventually stop the border violaters. He will make a big show of reluctance, but he will sign whatever can be put together and on his desk.

#2 Obama may sign a bill to get rid of a story but the implementation will be so ineffective/flawed that the Democrats will get to keep a majority of the illegal aliens. It´s all over now Pat Buchanan is right nothing will be done to effectively stop the flow and the Democrats will be very pleased and the GOP establishment will be happy that the Chamber of Commerce gets it´s illegals. We no southern border any longer the open borders crowd have won.

Just curious, why polls taken are for President and Republican Congress, but not for Democrat Congress? Are Democrat polling numbers worse than Republican´s, so it is excluded from reporting of results or is Democrat Congress response excluded from this issue?

Reid will simply dump any bill coming from the Republicans in the trash. That´s all he´s done for the last 4 years. In the meantime, Perry and Brewer need to secure their borders using their own National Guards. Let 0bama try to stop them! Then maybe the citizens of NM and CA will force their governors to follow suit.

So, when time is of the essence, the House may do something next week, then it goes to the Harry Reid Senate. The National Guard at minimum should have been mobilized in force weeks ago, this is an invasion, not a humanitarian crisis. The crisis is the dispersal of criminal illegals and disease throughout the country facilitated by an administration that hates Americans.

Beware of anything that moves quickly in Washington DC. Why can´t the GOP understand that immigration is a toxic, no-win issue for them? There is no need to bring up the subject. We have adequate laws, the Executive Branch refuses to enforce them. More laws will not change anything, it will just give the propaganda machine a club with which to beat them over the head. Stop talking about immigration!

What The Downed Flight
MH17 Means For Russia
The Federalist, by Tom Nichols    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 7/19/2014 11:09:08 AM     Post Reply
Here’s what the shootdown of Malaysian Airlines Flight 17 means: Russia, with Vladimir Putin at the wheel, just drove off the edge of a cliff. Now, by this I don’t mean that the United States and the European Union are going to charge in with a new round of sanctions, provide lethal aid to Ukraine, patrol the skies of Ukraine, or anything of that nature. The West didn’t react in time, or with enough resolve, to the initial invasion and partition of Ukraine last spring, and there’s no reason to think our reaction will be any more effective or resolute this

Cliven Bundy and the dangers

It has been more than three months since my constituents in Bunkerville, Nev., had their lives turned upside down by the standoff at the Bundy ranch. Although Bunkerville (population 1,300) is no longer in the media spotlight, life there has not returned to normal. The militia presence may have dwindled, but a sense of chaos and uncertainty lingers in my state and the broader American West. When news of a rebellious rancher facing off with federal agents broke in April, conservative media and politicians pounced, quickly lionizing Cliven Bundy as a patriot. They handed Bundy a megaphone, and self-proclaimed militia members

President Bill Clinton´s advisers carefully considered how to explain the president´s military action against Iraq in 1998 as the House was debating his impeachment, according to records from the Clinton White House that were released Friday. The documents also touch upon Osama bin Laden, consideration of military action in Haiti in 1994 and preparationsfor Supreme Court nomination hearings. The National Archives released about 1,000 pages of previously restricted documents from Clinton´s two terms, part of about 20,000 pages of Clinton records that have been disseminated since February. The papers, which are stored at the Clinton Presidential Library in Little Rock, Arkansas,

On Hectic Day, ‘No Drama’
Obama Sticks to Schedule
Wall Street Journal, by Peter Nicholas    Original Article

Barack Obama’s unflappability was a selling point on the 2008 campaign trail, with aides proudly donning T-shirts reading, “No Drama Obama.” But as much of an asset as it was for the candidate, Mr. Obama’s steady-as-she-goes approach to life can cause problems as president. This conflict was on full display Thursday, as Mr. Obama decided to stick to his regular schedule amid news reports of a Malaysia Airlines passenger jet crash in Ukraine that killed nearly 300 people. That decision generated a split-screen aspect to Mr. Obama’s day, as TV networks broke into regular programming to broadcast pictures of smoldering plane wreckage

The shooting down of a Malaysian airliner over Ukraine may finally force Washington and Europe to wake up to the danger of the conflict there escalating into full-blown war between Russia and Ukraine. This potential cataclysm has been inching closer to reality in the last week. The Ukrainian security council has said Russian weapons and troops have been crossing into Ukraine, and military aircraft from both sides have engaged each other. Documented videos purport to show artillery fire into Ukraine from the Russian side. On Sunday the Russian media went berserk with reports of the first casualty of a Russian civilian

What the Heck Is Chikungunya?

First of all, it’s pronounced chick-en-gun-yuh. Now that the first locally-acquired cases of the mosquito-borne virus have been reported in Florida, you’re probably wondering what is and why you should care. So we broke it down. The chikungunya virus is new to the Americas, though it’s long been found in Asia, Africa and Europe. It was discovered in the Caribbean islands late last year, and has since made its way to the continental United States by way of mosquito-bitten travelers returning from vacation. Before July 15, there were 357 reported cases of chikungunya in the United States, including 121 in Puerto Rico,

NEW YORK -- The jetliner is much more than a machine used to get from one spot to another. It often carries deep symbolism, especially when flying for a national airline. It can represent hope, modernity and a country´s power. And when things go wrong it, that once mighty plane can bring about deep national disgrace. Malaysia now finds itself grappling with the horrific - and extremely unusual - loss of two of its airplanes, just four months apart. It´s a sad coincidence that also stings. "It is unbelievable misfortune that struck (Malaysia Airlines) in such a short span of time. It will

State Dept. Backtracks After Kerry

Lawmakers came out swinging on Thursday afternoon after the State Department issued a blanket denial regarding statements that Secretary of State John Kerry made to members of Congress earlier that morning about the potential need for new sanctions on Iran. Kerry was widely reported to have told a group of Jewish lawmakers Thursday morning that the administration is open to a new sanctions bill, as news emerged from Vienna that U.S. negotiators would likely be unable to force concessions from Tehran before the July 20 deadline for nuclear talks. The administration’s narrative—which has long held that new pressure on Iran is not

It was supposed to be the end of the line for the governor. But the investigators haven’t quite finished the job. And now their inquiry is going nowhere. New Jersey Governor Chris Christie arrived in Iowa Thursday, surrounded by a media gaggle befitting a presidential frontrunner, just as new poll was released showing him trailing Hillary Clinton by a single point. It was Christie´s first visit to the caucus state in over two and a half years, and he unleashed his charms at GOP fundraisers and on Hawkeye locals, assuring them, “I will be back a lot.” In Marion, at

That noisy flutter above the rooftops is the sound of chickens coming home, trying to find a place on the crowded Democratic roost. Chaos on the border grows noisier, with a backlash in unexpected places: The governor of Connecticut, a Democrat and a fully credentialed liberal, tells President Obama to keep his children’s crusade out of liberal, nice, compassionate Connecticut. The ambitious governor of Maryland tells the president, his great friend, that enough is enough, he agrees it’s sad what’s happening with the children, but the solution is not in his backyard. Hundreds of rallies are scheduled across the nation this weekend.

   

 



 
Is This a Game Changer?

Though facts on the downing of the Malaysian Airlines flight over eastern Ukraine remain hard to pin down, the event could easily end up being a game-changer. While it’s impossible to rule out that the Ukrainian or Russian militaries are responsible for the tragedy, the rebels have been the ones bringing down Ukrainian military aircraft throughout the course of the conflict—with a marked uptick in attacks just this week. Radio chatter leaked by Kiev, purportedly between rebel commanders and their Russian intelligence handlers, seems to indicate that rebels brought down the plane thinking it belonged to the Ukrainian military:

It is at times like these, when he is pushed kicking and screaming into the crucible, that Obama’s callowness shows. For his supporters, that jejune, jocular air has been a plus for almost six years. For the rest of us, it has served as a liability and an irritation. Yesterday, it became a wholesale embarrassment. On the perpetual-campaign trail, the pattern is familiar. Trotting up to the podium, the president fist-bumps the audience’s stragglers and smiles a toothy and humble grin at those who catch his eye.

Now that the U.S.-Russia relationship has broken down, Moscow could throw a wrench into the teetering nuclear negotiations with Iran.The escalating tensions between Washington and Moscow, brought to fever by the MH17 airliner disaster, are finally to the point where they threaten to spoil the number one item on President Obama’s foreign policy agenda: the nuclear talks with Iran. The man doing the threatening is Russian President Vladimir Putin.Earlier this week, Putin promised to retaliate against the United States for new sanctions targeting his friends and business associates, as well as large Russian defense, energy, and financial firms.

Political pundits are divided about the merits of House Speaker John Boehner´s lawsuit against President Obama´s employer mandate. But should the chief executive be worried that two constitutional law experts — one a conservative, the other a liberal who voted for Obama — not only think the suit has merit but will likely succeed? The two backing Boehner and two constitutional law experts who oppose the suit testified Wednesday before the House Rules Committee.

House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) indicated today that if President Barack Obama takes actions that exceed his constitutional authority, the House of Representatives has no plans to use its own constitutional authority to withhold funding from those actions. At his weekly press briefing, CNSNews.com asked Boehner: “You’ve said you disagree with calls to impeach the president over abuse of power via executive actions. But under the Constitution the House actually has the power of the purse. So, if the President takes actions that exceed his Constitutional authority, will you withhold funding for those actions in the next must-pass

(Video) The Washington Free Beacon has put together a greatest hits compilation of the Democrats’ border security quotes. Why would the Democrats continuously insist that the border is secure? Perhaps because Republicans insist on having a secure border before discussing any type of immigration reform legislation. Democrats don’t think people will catch up to this at some point?
