Reid: ‘Dreamers’ here legitimately
The Hill (Washington DC), by Alexander Bolton

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 7/17/2014 12:23:06 PM

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) says immigrants who came to the country illegally at a young age are now legitimate residents and should not be deported. Reid made the remarks in response to Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), who is demanding that an emergency spending bill for the border reverse President Obama’s 2012 order halting deportations of so-called Dreamers. “Before Republicans help our Border Patrol agents and all the personnel trying to do something to handle this humanitarian crisis, they want President Obama to deport the Dreamers who are already here, legitimately here,” he said on the Senate floor Thursday morning.

Somebody in the media should ask Reid under what immigration law was the status of the so-called "Dreamers" changed to that of legal residents as there is none that was passed by Congress.

There is no requirement that the "Dreamers" who are benefiting from Obama´s illegal amnesty get good grades or serve in the military, those are just inventions to give Obama some cover with people who have not been paying attention. All the "Dreamers" have to do is claim that they came into the USA before age 16. There is nobody to verify that claim, as the alien smugglers along the borderline do not give dated receipts when they render their unlawful services to illegal aliens.

Am I here legitimately?

Schools are required to educate these children. It does not make any sense to pay to educate children, or college students and then deport them. I suppose that is another discussion for another time. For now we need to figure out how to solve the problem, not how to gain political advantage from it.

No, U.S. schools are NOT required to provide services to illegal aliens.

Never mind the fact that what they do to young American citizens can scarcely be called an education.

20 Examples of What
Liberalism REALLY Is
Hot Air, by John Hawkins    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 7/19/2014 3:07:07 PM     Post Reply
1) Liberalism is college professors and documentary filmmakers accumulating vast fortunes in a capitalistic system by decrying the evils of capitalism. 2) Liberalism is claiming that the "border is secure" while saying we shouldn´t deport anyone who illegally crosses the border. 3) Liberalism is "environmental activists" flying across the world to ride together in SUVs to posh environmental conferences where they call for everyone else to live like cavemen in order to save the planet. 4) Liberalism is spewing hatred and profanity at conservative women, calling for gun control that leaves women defenseless against rapists and murderers, and celebrating misogynistic

Engagement rings are barbaric

Thinking about getting engaged, guys? Best hold off on shopping for some big, gaudy rock to give your special lady. It’s not because the diamond industry is an incredibly rigged racket which keeps prices inflated many orders of magnitude above their actual worth. (Which is true.) And it’s not because you’re supporting bloody oppression of miners. (Probably some truth there as well.) No, it’s because giving a woman a diamond ring is just a reminder that she’s little more than chattel to be traded among powerful men. Seriously… I read it in Salon so it must be true.

MOSCOW — Russia announced Saturday that it is barring 13 Americans from entering the country, including Rep. James P. Moran (D-Va.), just as Washington has blocked access for 13 Russian and Crimean officials in recent months. The Foreign Ministry also repeated its pledge to counter the most recent round of U.S. economic sanctions with “response measures” of its own. The Obama administration on Wednesday announced tough new measures targeting major Russian banks and energy companies, a significant swath of the Russian defense industry and individuals it said were responsible for the continuing support of separatists battling government forces in eastern

Kirkuk (Iraq)- Hundreds of Christian families fled their homes in Mosul Saturday before a jihadist ultimatum threatening their community´s centuries-old presence in the northern Iraqi city expired. An AFP correspondent in Mosul, the main Iraqi hub of the Islamic State (IS) group´s proclaimed "caliphate", said Christians squeezed into private cars and taxis to beat the noon deadline. "Some families have had all their money and jewellery taken from them at an insurgent checkpoint as they fled the city," said Abu Rayan, a Mosul Christian who had just driven out with his family.

A 10-year-old girl was shot in the head and critically injured by a stray bullet fired into her home in the Garfield Park neighborhood Friday afternoon, authorities said. The girl, and another 12-year-old shot in the same neighborhood, are among 22 people shot between about 3:30 p.m. and 3 a.m. The 10-year-old was shot in the head in the 3900 block of West Gladys Avenue about 9:35 p.m., said Police News Affairs Officer Amina Greer. The girl was taken, initially in critical condition, to Mount Sinai Hospital, according to the Chicago Fire Department, and later was considered in extremely critical

(Video) Friday First Lady Michelle Obama hosted the first "Kids State Dinner” in the East Room of the White House, which treated the 54 children who won a nationwide healthy meal recipe contest sponsored by the food magazine Epicurious and the Education and Agriculture departments to a state dinner. The first lady told the kid chefs from each state, the District of Columbia, and three U.S. territories, "I need you guys to make your voices heard," because, she explained, "folks in Congress [are] trying to undo some of the progress that we’ve made to get healthier food into our schools."

President Obama called on Congress Saturday to approve measures that he said would help the middle class, from a job-training initiative to comprehensive immigration reform. “We have to make sure our economy works for every working American,” Mr. Obama said in his weekly address. “My opportunity agenda does that.” But Rep. Steve Scalise, Louisiana Republican and incoming House majority whip, told Mr. Obama to “put down your pen and phone” used for executive actions and to urge Senate Democrats to stop blocking the GOP’s measures to help the economy. He said Mr. Obama and congressional Democrats should support efforts such

AMSTERDAM — Flags flew at half-staff Friday in this small but extremely international country, one that is accustomed to standing on the forefront of global cultural debates over such things as gay rights, euthanasia and marijuana policies. But on Thursday, after the downing of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17, the Netherlands found itself thrust squarely into an unaccustomed role at the center of the realpolitik of the conflict in Ukraine. It seemed as if everyone in the Netherlands, a country of 16 million people, knew someone among the 189 Dutch nationals killed in the crash, whether personally, or as a friend

(Video) Leery Chicopee and Bourne officials blasted Gov. Deval Patrick’s plan to house 1,000 illegal immigrant children on one of the military bases in their own backyards — citing concerns such as the health of the hordes of unaccompanied youngsters crossing the border and whether they’ll further strain cash-strapped budgets. “We don’t even know if some of these children have diseases. We don’t know if they are gang members. We don’t even know how old they are,” Linda Zuern, a member of the Board of Selectmen in Bourne, said yesterday. “If Deval Patrick thinks this is such a great idea,

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) will join Glenn Beck this weekend at the U.S.-Mexico border on what Beck describes as a humanitarian mission. The Tea Party Senator will join the radio talk show host and his followers in his effort to bring soccer balls and teddy bears to illegal immigrant children. Cruz, who told Breitbart News that the event is a statement against President Barack Obama´s non-enforcement of immigration laws, said he will be doling out medical supplies.

Joel Gilbert´s There´s No

Posted By: JoniTx- 7/19/2014 7:49:03 AM     Post Reply
Last night saw the premier in Denver of Joel Gilbert’s There’s No Place Like Utopia, a film that gets to the heart of the progressive/communist project for America and where it is leading us. Joel uses the Wizard of Oz as an extended metaphor for the trickery and fraud that underlies the quest to perfect human nature and bring about heaven on earth that Marx promised. The film is disarming in many ways, for it tackles great intellectual themes, usually the province of dense prose, and uses images and personality to tell the story in a highly accessible way.

Ferguson-Florissant, Riverview Gardens and St. Louis Public Schools are among the school districts in the region that are planning to offer free lunches to all students, regardless of need, through a federal program new to Missouri schools this year. Some of the districts had been offering free breakfast for all students and will continue to do so. Now, district officials are participating in the so-called Community Eligibility Provision funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. The program is part of the Hungry-Free Kids Act of 2010, which was projected to boost federal spending on nutrition programs by $79 million over

Four-star Gen.

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.

John McCain said Thursday that he believes Republicans can defeat former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in 2016, but only if they pass immigration reform." Calling Hillary Clinton the "odds-on favorite right now“ to win the White House in 2016, McCain added, "I expect it to be very competitive, except if we don’t enact some kind of comprehensive immigration reform, I do not see a way for us to really win a general election.”

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. The uber presidency George Washington University Law Prof. Jonathan Turley voted for Obama but in recent months has become perhaps the most visible critic of what he views as a

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.

Twenty-three Americans are feared dead after the jetliner crashed in eastern Ukraine.

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.

(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?
