Poll: 1 in 6 say immigration
is nation´s top problem

The Hill [DC], by Rebecca Shabad

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 7/16/2014 12:24:17 PM

Seventeen percent of people in the United States say immigration is the nation’s top problem, according to a Gallup poll released Wednesday. That´s up from 5 percent in June, and is the highest number Gallup has registered for immigration since 2006, when 15 percent said it was the nation´s most pressing problem. Gallup’s new survey found immigration is virtually tied with “dissatisfaction with government” as the nation´s top problem. The economy and unemployment rank below immigration and “dissatisfaction with government" as top problems, the new poll found. Only 8 percent now rate healthcare as the top problem, down from 16 percent in January, when

Calling this "immigration" is like calling aggravated assault "socializing".

I suspect this poll spike is due in large part to the unfolding disaster occurring on our southern border. Watch the MFM try to twist this into "support" for their so-called immigration reform.

Toldja polls are a crock of warm spit; Immigration is not our number one problem. Our problem is a corrupt president trying to turn America into a marxist state, along with his hell-bent corrupt cabinet and most of the congress as crooked as a dog´s hind leg. Apologies to the dog.

It´s only going to increase. By this fall it could be 1 in 3. This is a great opportunity to talk about real border security. If the GOP starts talking specifics, not just build a fence or send in the guard, but how border security was achieved in different sectors, what laws Obama isn´t enforcing, the problems with our exit visa system, they´ll swamp Democrats at the polls. They´ll do it with a lot of voters who usually vote Dem too.

Our #1 problem as a nation is that we have a president and administration that hates this nation, and wants to actively destroy it in every way possible (destroy our healthcare system, destroy traditional values and institutions, destroy the freedom of religion, disarm the law-abiding populace, destroy the military, etc, etc, etc).

They welcome the invasion of illegals storming our border. Just another tool to cause chaos and instability.

There is a host of issues that are candidates for the "top" problem. Almost all of them would be lessened if not eliminated by the simple act of Obama´s resignation.

Guess what, health care, unemployment, economy, etc are all related. The "immigration" is actually an invasion and it will adversely affect ALL those other things, not to mention cultural rot, security, political division, etc.

People who say Obama is incompetent don´t understand that he is VERY good at what he is doing and VERY good at masking his intentions so he appears incompetent.

Yes, this number will continue to grow exponentially. The child-filled Trojan Horse is an act of war and treason that is only the latest invasion that is an existential threat to the nation. Yes, it is that serious. It is nothing less than part of the effort to "fundamentally transform" the US - into a banana republic.

Remember last year when Karl Rove and his RNC sycophants insisted that Republicans bet everything in 2014 on the collapse of Obamacare?

Wrong again, Karl.

The media continues to push this invasion of illegals as "immigration" or an "immigration crisis". It is neither. It is an Obama-controlled and directed invasion of illegals with the governments of Mexico and various central American countries complicit. What this is, is treason. But The Won knows that the Republican party is paralyzed with fear and will do nothing, and that Boehner has been effectively neutered.

Is Wendy Davis´ political star fading
in Texas gubernatorial race?
Fox News, by Kelley Beaucar Vlahos    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 9/2/2014 2:40:43 PM     Post Reply
As a feisty state senator with pink sneakers and a fist in the air, Wendy Davis captured both the love and the ire of America last year when she pulled an 11-hour filibuster of anti-abortion measures in the Texas Capitol. But after using that star power to win her party´s nomination for governor, Davis is still struggling to take a lead over Republican Attorney General Greg Abbott, and some say party confidence in her race is waning. "I think the frustration in some Democratic circles is that, despite her star power and substantial war chest, she has not been able to move

A U.S. court in Texas will hear arguments on Tuesday in a case over a law requiring voters to present photo identification, a move the state´s Republican leaders say will prevent fraud while plaintiffs call it a veiled attempt at suppressing minority turnout. The case is also part of a new strategy by the Obama administration to challenge voting laws it says discriminate by race in order to counter a U.S. Supreme Court ruling in June that freed states from strict federal oversight. . The trial at the U.S. district court in Corpus Christi stems from a three-year legal battle over stringent

In Governors´ Races, Parties Are

Democrats are bullish about their opportunity to win the governor´s mansion in Kansas and Republicans have sent staffers out to Hawaii for what they view as a promising opportunity to turn the state red. Those statements may seem surprising given both states´ political leanings—but they´re a testament to the fact that the 2014 gubernatorial map has shifted considerably in recent months, a new reality that may cause both parties to move resources to places they never expected at the beginning of the year. Unlike the 2014 Senate map, which has remained relatively static over the course of the cycle, the

An attorney for the family of an Alaska couple murdered last year sent a scathing letter to U.S. Sen. Mark Begich claiming that his political ad using the couple’s case to attack Republican challenger Dan Sullivan is “inciting” the family and “tearing [it] apart.” Bryon Collins, the family attorney, sent the letter, titled “Second Demand To Take Down All Case References And Ads,” to Begich on Monday. “The family directly and without question has told your campaign they want no part of this,” Collins writes in the letter, obtained by The Daily Caller. Collins was referring to an ad first aired by Begich’s

McConnell expands lead in Bluegrass Poll

Republican U.S. Sen. Mitch McConnell has put a little more distance between him and his Democratic opponent, Alison Lundergan Grimes, but the race remains within the margin of error, according to the latest Bluegrass Poll. The poll, conducted by SurveyUSA for The Courier-Journal and three other news outlets, found that McConnell holds a 46 percent to 42 percent lead among likely voters over Grimes. Libertarian David Patterson gets 5 percent of the vote, and 8 percent remain undecided. It´s the third consecutive Bluegrass Poll that has found McConnell improving his chances for re-election in November. Before that, the poll found Grimes ahead

The 10 Most Vulnerable Senators

There is a new chart-topper in Roll Call’s latest monthly ranking of the 10 most vulnerable senators. Montana’s appointed Sen. John Walsh was by far the most endangered incumbent in the chamber at the time of the previous installment in early August, but his decision last month to not seek a full term opened the top slot to a couple other worthy contenders. Sen. Mark Pryor, D-Ark., is still in a perilous political position, but Louisiana Sen. Mary L. Landrieu has leapfrogged him on the list to become the Senate’s most vulnerable incumbent. The Democrat is pushing hard to eclipse 50 percent on

"Immigration Rights": What Are They?

While Joe Biden was exhorting Detroiters to “take back America,” presumably from Barack Obama and himself, the president also expounded on the meaning of Labor Day. His themes were tiresomely familiar–we are the good guys, Republicans are the bad guys–but one interesting feature was his reference to “immigration rights.” This passage laid the groundwork: When unions and CEOs, when law enforcement and the evangelical community, when folks who usually don’t agree on anything agree that we should be fixing our broken immigration system, but the Republicans in the House of Representatives have been sitting on a bill for more than a

Only four hours west of Washington, there is a town where cell phones and wireless Internet are outlawed. Commercial radios are banned, and microwaves aren´t welcome either. Green Bank might sound like a Luddite´s dreamscape, but the West Virginia hamlet´s self-imposed blackout is being done all in the name of science: Green Bank is home to the world´s largest radio telescope, a 100-meters-in-diameter dish that is the crown jewel of the National Radio Astronomy Observatory. By measuring radio waves emitted from objects in space, the Robert C. Byrd Green Bank Telescope can go where optical telescopes can´t. It lets scientists "see" parts

Twoo online fundraising pages that raised more than $400,000 for the police officer who killed an unarmed black man in Ferguson, Mo., were shut down this weekend so tax lawyers could decide how best to handle the money, an official told the Los Angeles Times. Mystery has surrounded the pages on the crowdsourced fundraising site GoFundMe since Saturday, when both were suspended by their creators without an explanatory note to donors. And some mystery persisted Monday night. "Support Officer Darren Wilson" and "Support Officer Wilson" -- two separate pages with similar names -- raised $235,750 and $197,620, respectively, for the Ferguson police

KINLOCH RANNOCH, Scotland — The chieftain of the Rannoch Highland gathering was leaning on a traditional shepherds’ crook considering the prospect of an independent Scotland. Clad in a green and red kilt, with an eagle feather in his cap and a ceremonial dagger protruding from his right sock, Leo Barclay said the only certainty was that his country faced an historic crossroads.

There’s chatter, and there’s chatter, and only a trained intelligence ear can tell the difference. The trained ears are trying now to determine what to make of the chatter about a new attack on the United States, here or abroad and perhaps coordinated by the Islamic State (usually called ISIS). If there’s anything to the chatter (and sometimes there is), we may soon be treated to what happens when Barack Obama employs his famous tactic of “leading from behind.” We have to call it a tactic and not a strategy, since the president says he doesn’t have a strategy. He might one

President Obama needs to take action to stop Islamic State (Isis) militants from targeting cities in America and Western Europe, two senators have warned. Without offering specifics on any threats or suggestions on how to confront them, the leaders of the Senate and House of Representatives intelligence committees urged the White House to work to prevent the Islamic State extremists from launching attacks on US soil. The bipartisan pair shared a dire warning against Isis, which now has control of vast swathes of Syria and Iraq, has killed civilians from that region and beheaded American journalist James Foley. “This is

On TV, incompetence is funny, sometimes hilarious. Jackie Gleason made a career of it on the old “Honeymooners” show; Tom Haverford is absurdly incapable on “Parks and Recreation”; and Michael Scott brought the Peter Principle to new heights in “The Office.” But in real life, incompetence can be dangerous, even life-threatening (think a real-life Homer Simpson actually in charge of safety at a nuclear power plant). That’s where America finds itself nearly six years into the presidency of Barack Obama. There’s no question Mr. Obama has all but checked out.

Because I am a black conservative, someone wrote asking me this great question. “What is it that compels some black men and women to cling to, and follow people like Sharpton, Jackson, Wright, Obama, Spike Lee, Black Panthers, Holder, etc.?” I have pondered the same question. Some black folks embrace victim status because it provides cover for their laziness and irresponsible lifestyles. Black Judases preach a false, evil gospel of victimhood-ism for profit. Some blacks are racist, pure and simple. I believe that a majority of black Americans simply have not been exposed to unfiltered conservatism – to blacks articulating how blessed they

The FBI said late Monday that it was investigating leaked nude photos that targeted Jennifer Lawrence and Kate Upton. The agency told the Associated Press that it was addressing accusations that online accounts of celebrities, including Oscar-winner Lawrence, had been hacked, leading to the posting of their nude photographs online. In addition, Apple Inc. spokeswoman Natalie Kerris said the company was investigating whether any iCloud accounts were compromised, according to the AP. Representatives for supermodel-turned-actress Upton, 22, and Lawrence, 24, who plays heroine Katniss Everdeen in the Hunger Games movie franchise, issued statements about intimate pictures which first appeared on

In remarks on the U.S. economy Monday, President Barack Obama said Congressional Republicans will eventually cave to public pressure to raise the federal minimum wage. Obama was speaking at the Laborfest festival hosted by the AFL-CIO in Milwaukee, Wis. “If I cared about these things, I’d also want more Democrats looking out for me,” he said. “I’m just saying. Because when the rest of the country is working to raise wages, but Republicans in Congress won’t, it ain’t right.” Noting the protests in recent months from fast food workers seeking higher wages, Obama said Republicans would open up to the

A federal study to determine why 75 percent of lesbian women are obese and gay men are not has totaled nearly $3 million. The National Institutes of Health study is now in its fourth year, receiving an additional $670,567 for fiscal year 2014, for a total cost of $2.87 million, the Washington Free Beacon reported. Researchers at Brigham and Women’s Hospital have come to several conclusions since studying “the striking interplay of gender and sexual orientation in obesity disparities,” which is slated to last until 2016. They have determined that gay and bisexual males had a “greater desire for toned muscles” than straight men, lesbians have lower

Between 1970 and 1990, the population of Philadelphia shrank by a quarter, dropping from 1.95 to 1.59 million. Like many American cities, it seemed caught in a downward spiral. Since then – like many American cities – Philadelphia has stabilized. The population now appears to have bottomed out at the millennium, and has been regaining residents over the past decade. But as it rebounds, Philly is becoming a different kind of city. In the two most recent decades, which comprise the bounce of the city’s population curve, owner-occupied housing dropped even more steeply than in the ’70s and ’80s. Between 2000 and

An anonymous hacker reportedly gained access to private photos on the Hunger Games actress’s mobile phone, and those of 100 others, via Apple’s online storage system iCloud. The 60-odd pictures of Lawrence in varying stages of undress were then posted on the bulletin board website 4chan.
