Ted Cruz: Border Bill Must Address
Obama´s Executive Amnesty Threat

Breitbart Big Government, by Matthew Boyle

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 7/17/2014 12:07:34 AM

With House Republicans exploring lawmakers´ immigration “wish lists” as they craft a legislative response to the border crisis, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) is drawing a line in the sand: unless the bill prevents President Obama from expanding unilateral amnesty for so-called DREAMers, he will oppose it. “No legislation should be considered unless it specifically prohibits Obama from expanding” the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), “which allows those who have come here illegally to stay,” Cruz spokeswoman Catherine Frazier told Breitbart News. “That should be a prerequisite for any bill considered to address this crisis.” Frazier also told Breitbart News

Senator Cruz gets it. You don´t go along with any Democrat-crafted bill without getting something significant for OUR side. Thank you, Senator.

Dirty Harry would never ever bring the bill to a vote if it contained this provision. If it were up to Dirty Harry, he would empty out Africa and the Middle East for his messiah.

Cruz, too bad you and other Conservative politicians and/or leaders who speak Spanish cannot speak to them in masses warning them of the behavior of our present leaders and how they want to turn this country into something much, much worse than what they are running from ...and educate them all on HOW THEY CAN STOP THIS with THEIR VOTES! How they can have the freedom and faith and hope to have a say in removing a country, THIS COUNTRY from the present ruling tyrants before they destroy another nation and cause more suffering on them and their families. We can use what Obama planned against us.......to turn around against them. That would really do them in and that is needed if we want to save our country.

#3, Texas officeholders have been all over the border, doing just what you suggest, although I don´t believe Senator Cruz has done so. The border bill under discussion was written by Texans Senator Cornyn (R) and Henry Cuellar (D).

Iran Begins Arming Palestinian Terrorists
Washington Free Beacon [DC], by Adam Kredo    Original Article

Iranian military leaders say that they have begun weapons deliveries to Palestinian terrorists in the West Bank and elsewhere in the region after months of promising increased military support for Israel’s enemies, according to regional reports. A top Iranian military commander confirmed that weapon shipments to the West Bank have already begun and that more will be sent to other “Palestinian resistance groups.” “Arming the West Bank has started and weapons will be supplied to the people of this region,” Brigadier General Mohammad Reza Naqdi, the commander of Iran’s volunteer Basij force told the state-run Fars News Agency on Wednesday.

IRS Delaying Release of Data

IRS data on internal migration showing how many people have moved to and from which states generally shows people leaving high-taxed states and states with high unemployment to states doing better in those categories. Now Obama´s IRS is seeking to delay release of these statistics for another 12 months. For decades economists and lawmakers both have used this IRS data as a marker for which states are succeeding in America, but the Obama administration has shown its disdain for this important metric. Obama´s IRS had once announced that it was going to discontinue to collect and release this data but

Sickening footage appears to show Islamic State militants parading around 250 captured soldiers through the desert in their underwear before they are killed and their bodies piled on the bare earth. An Islamic State fighter claimed the men were from the Syrian government´s Tabqa air base which extremists seized on Sunday, potentially handing them warplanes, tanks, artillery and ammunition. The video, which has not been independently verified, is too graphic to be published in full. It begins by showing dozens of men being marched through the desert wearing only their underwear. It then fades to black, resuming with a pile

Illegal aliens successfully landed on a San Diego beach in a panga boat on Monday and ran to shore - but, when another group tried the same thing on Tuesday, U.S. Customs and Border (CBP) agents were waiting for them. Around 7am Monday morning, a horde of illegal aliens stormed a San Diego beach after coming ashore in a panga boat. They sprinted across the beach and climbed over a wall, entering the city. (Video) Seven of the illegal aliens were spotted by helicopter and later apprehended several blocks from the beach; the CBP is still looking for at least

All of them brought back by former students who bucked the odds and went to college. "You need to make sure you have a plan," Knorr exhorts the class. "Because your plan will lead to a banner, OK?

As state officials enacted the rules that will govern the rollout of medical marijuana in Illinois, dozens of individual communities updated their zoning codes to determine where grow centers and pot stores can and cannot be located. Now, with the state poised to begin accepting applications next month for businesses and patients, many suburbs have moved from the theoretical to the concrete as they consider specific proposals from people who want to grow or sell legal marijuana within town borders. Communities including Naperville, Elgin, Glenview, Woodstock and LaGrange have all been eyed by would-be pot purveyors as potential sites for

AUSTIN, Texas- Two Texans, one White House. Is the 2016 Republican campaign trail big enough? After plummeting from prime contender to political punchline three years ago, Gov. Rick Perry has spent months gearing up for a second run. And he´s turned his recent indictment on felony abuse-of-power charges into a campaign rallying cry. But even as Perry works to convince conservatives that he´ll be better at coping with the national spotlight this time, he´s increasingly bumping up against his state´s junior senator, tea party darling Ted Cruz, whose firebomb approach on Capitol Hill has grassroots activists clamoring for him to

No surprise here, but I had overlooked what Peter Wehner has extracted from the Jerusalem Post: Speaking extensively on US relations with Jerusalem since the end of the latest round of peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians last April, and throughout Operation Protective Edge, a candid [former US special envoy for Israeli-Palestinian Negotiations Martin] Indyk said at times US President Barack Obama has become “enraged” at the Israeli government, both for its actions and for its treatment of his chief diplomat, US Secretary of State John Kerry… Gaza has had “very negative impact” on US-Israel relations, he continued.

On airstrikes, Obama channels
the words of George W. Bush
Washington Examiner (DC), by Brian Hughes    Original Article

President Obama was sent to the White House on promises of being different from his predecessor. But of late, he´s sounding a lot like George W. Bush. “America does not forget. Our reach is long. We are patient. Justice will be done,” Obama said this week when discussing the threat the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria poses to U.S. citizens. The phrasing was reminiscent of Bush´s remarks after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, when he said “whether we bring our enemies to justice, or bring justice to our enemies, justice will be done." White House officials were quick

Obama’s use of executive authority
is about to become a real political issue
Washington Post, by Aaron Blake    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 8/28/2014 12:04:30 PM     Post Reply
President Obama is weighing a big-time executive action on immigration that has both Democrats and Republicans anxious. He´s also pursuing a major international climate-change agreement without ratification by Congress. And it´s not yet clear whether the White House will seek congressional authorization for military action in Syria that appears increasingly likely. Yes, we are finally entering into what could be a very big debate about executive authority -- and with the 2014 election just weeks away. ThIS debate was supposed to happen when House Republicans sued Obama over his having delayed a portion of Obamacare unilaterally. But if he does

William Kennedy Smith, who counts among his uncles two senators and a president, is going into the family business — in the political equivalent of the mailroom. William K. Smith is one of two names that will appear on the Nov. 4 ballot for Advisory Neighborhood Commission seat 2A04, representing a sliver of Washington’s Foggy Bottom area that includes the Watergate complex and, yes, the John F.

The New York Times tried to keep the politicized hit job against Texas Gov. Rick Perry alive in Wednesday´s edition, insisting the dubious partisan indictment (from a Democratic district attorney´s office that has filed failed charges against prominent national GOP figures) actually has merit, with a "complicated back story" and "deep roots," while pouting that Perry´s team has had "substantial success in the court of public opinion" so far. No thanks to the overexcited Times coverage. Reporter David Montgomery filed "Texas v. Perry Emerges From Years of Struggle Over Anticorruption Unit," a follow-up to his Tuesday print edition hit.

I feel confident in saying that most Americans are disgusted by the perfectly legal practice of U.S. companies avoiding taxes by incorporating in another country. So why does it take a whopper of a story to get the media to pay attention? Burger King, as you know, is moving to buy the Canadian chain Tim Hortons, and this is more about dollars than doughnuts. The hamburger giant plans to move its headquarters to Canada, thereby slashing its Treasury tax bill. The White House doesn’t like it. Democrats don’t like it. The Republicans don’t like it. And, as usual, it doesn’t look like Washington

In a statement from the White House on Thursday, President Obama addressed the world on fire. ISIS terrorists are losing arms and equipment because of U.S. strikes, Obama said, adding that “our focus right now is to protect American personnel on the ground in Iraq.” However, he also cautioned against rushing in. "I don´t want to put the cart before the horse, we don´t have a strategy yet," he said. The Daily Beast reported that the president asked for a war plan for ISIS in Syria by Friday.

Texas Governor Rick Perry has reportedly aligned himself with two of the most infamous Republican establishment operatives known for trashing conservatives. Perry is working with Henry Barbour, whom conservatives want the Republican National Committee to censure for his group´s smearing of conservatives in the Mississippi Senate runoff, and Steve Schmidt, who has elevated his profile by maligning conservatives, especially former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin. Politico´s Maggie Haberman reported on Tuesday that Schmidt, the infamous hack from Sen.

The Environmental Protection Agency’s proposed global warming regulations aren’t just about stemming global temperature rises — according to agency’s chief, they are also about “justice” for “communities of color.” “Carbon pollution standards are an issue of justice,” said EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy in a teleconference call with environmental activists. “If we want to protect communities of color, we need to protect them from climate change.” McCarthy is referring to the EPA’s proposed rule that would limit carbon dioxide emissions from existing power plants. The agency says the rule will not only help fight global warming, but will also improve public

President Obama’s plan to schmooze Wall Street honchos at a Westchester fund-raiser Friday is grounding wealthy weekenders who planned to fly to the Hamptons or Nantucket for the Labor Day holiday. The FAA has issued a no-fly warning that extends for most of Friday and all day Saturday through Sunday, grounding seaplanes to East Hampton, Montauk, Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket. On Friday, Obama will be feted at the home of one of his top bundlers, 32 Advisors’ Robert Wolf, in the aptly-named Purchase, NY, with 250 high-rollers paying up to $32,000 each to bend Obama’s ear.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla.— Former Republican Gov. Charlie Crist continued his political comeback Tuesday as Democratic voters selected him as their nominee to challenge Republican Gov. Rick Scott in Florida, one of four states where voters were choosing candidates for statewide office. Crist easily defeated former state Sen. Nan Rich, while Scott coasted in his own primary toward a general election matching the state’s last two Republican governors. Both have struggled with sagging approval ratings and run-ins with conservatives. “It’s a wonderful night,” Crist declared after accepting a concession call from Rich. Crist said the strong showing is a sign that Democrats

CULLMAN, Ala. — California is looking to bar the “Stars and Bars.” A bill sits on Gov. Jerry Brown’s desk to ban California from displaying or selling the Confederate flag or objects with images of it. The state’s Legislature passed the bill nearly unanimously last week. Assemblyman Isadore Hall III, D-Compton, introduced the legislation after his mother discovered the Capitol gift shop sold a replica of Confederate money that contained a picture of the flag, according to the L.A. Times. The lone dissenting vote among the 67 cast was from former California GOP gubernatorial candidate Tim Donnelly of Twin Peaks. He argued

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, part of the Department of Transportation, published last week an "advanced notice of proposed rulemaking" on "vehicle-to-vehicle communications." What NHTSA is proposing could begin a transformation in the American transportation system that makes our lives better and freer — or gives government more power over where we go and when. In announcing its proposed rulemaking, NHTSA is stressing its intention to protect the "privacy" of American drivers. "This document initiates rulemaking that would propose to create a new Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard, FMVSS No. 150, to require vehicle-to-vehicle communication capability for light vehicles,"

Mitt Romney has repeatedly stated that he will not run in the 2016 presidential election, but his most recent comments suggest he may be leaving the door slightly open for another run at the White House. During a radio interview yesterday on “The Hugh Hewitt Show,” Romney responded to more questions about his possible candidacy by saying, “I know you’re going to press, but you know, this is something we gave a lot of thought to when early on I decided we’re not going to be running this time.“ “And again, we said look, I had the chance of running.
