Perry: No Word From Obama
Since July 9 Meeting

Cybercast News Service, by Susan Jones

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 7/24/2014 2:10:16 PM

"No," Gov. Rick Perry said he has not heard from President Obama, since Obama met with him two weeks ago during a fundraising trip to Texas. At that meeting, Perry urged the president to deploy National Guard troops to the border; he asked for border patrol agents stationed inland to be moved closer to the border; and he asked for approval to use drone surveillance. Perry on Wednesday described the influx of illegal aliens into the Rio Grande Valley as a "full-blown" crisis that puts Texas citizens "in jeopardy." Since the fall of 2008, more than 203,000 illegal aliens have

Perry urged the president to:

1) deploy National Guard troops to the border; 2) asked for border patrol agents stationed inland to be moved closer to the border;
and
3) asked for approval to use drone surveillance.

Oh, please, Governor! Now just HOW do any of those things help B. Hussein Obama? Sheesh!

There won´t be any "word" from Obama. It appears that Perry was window-dressing at a meeting where negotiation was done to reinforce BCFS´s relationship with the Obama regime re "taking care of" the illegal aliens invading our country.

On July 9th 2014 President Obama made a visit to Dallas Texas for two reasons. The first reason was fundraising, the second reason was to meet with Governor Rick Perry and “Faith Leaders” to discuss the border crisis.

More here on that July 9 visit:

This is smart of Perry. He´s keeping the subject in the news. I doubt he thought he´d hear from Obama. He and Cruz can do a lot of damage to the Dems on border security. Hopefully something positive can come of it in the next few years. The Republican candidates for governor here in AZ are all fighting to prove they´ll be the toughest on border security. One even vows to finish the fence. I´m not sure how she plans to do that but more power to her.

Still waiting for Perry to push for a law that will fine then take away the business license of Texas companies who knowingly hire illegals.

Still waiting for action to be taken against Texas cities who declare themselves sanctuaries for illegals.

Still waiting for action on ideas such as immediately impounding vehicles from drivers found to be without required insurance during a normal traffic stop. This would definitely affect illegals in the state.

Perry has done a good job hustling business for Texas and in general I approve of his actions while in office. But there are steps he could take to chase illegals out of the state of Texas. Currently it´s a lot of talk and not much action.

I too like our Governor, #7. It does not excuse him from refusing to take the measures, fighting the fights to act as you suggested in your comments. As many of us realize, we should have DEMANDED these basic things be done (not discussed) awhile ago. Decades of our politicians have promised but never really been serious. The poo was going to hit the fan one day but we chose to ignore it. Then came Obama...

Obama Plays Catch-Up With
Public and Himself
ABC News, by Rick Klein    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 9/10/2014 10:44:46 PM     Post Reply
President Obama on Wednesday night entered a new phase of his presidency -- and he did it in a most Obama of ways. First, to what’s changed: He’s announcing a war, not ending one. He’s preparing to act without Congress, almost exactly a year after deferring to the legislative branch on a question of whether to use American military force. The president is rushing to catch up with and soothe an anxious, even frightened, public. He’s doing it while looking to reverse perceptions that he’s been slow to respond to metastasizing crises in the Middle East and beyond. “I can

On Wednesday’s “The Kelly File” following President Barack Obama’s prime time address to the nation about his policy to deal with ISIS in the Middle East, Fox News senior political analyst Brit Hume reacted to the speech. According to Hume, nothing really came unexpected from a policy standpoint and Obama was very guarded with the language he used on how he would deal with the ISIS threat. “Well, Megyn, nothing that we heard tonight was really beyond what we expected,” he said. “I was eager to describe him the threat because there´s a certain logic to these things.

Since July, the Obama-backed Free Syrian Army, Al Nusra Front, and ISIS have paired together in order to fight the Syrian Assad regime. According to one Free Syrian Army commander, the combining of forces with ISIS was needed in order to achieve “the greater good.” Since around that time ISIS has paraded around the Caliphate in their brand new Toyota Hilux trucks. Paid for by US taxpayers.

President Barack Obama said Wednesday night that he intends to pursue terrorists from the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS) across the invisible border between Iraq and Syria if that´s necessary to defeat them. He also pledged to avoid putting tens of thousands of American boots on the ground there. In a four-point plan laid out Wednesday night the U.S. leader announced coming airstrikes in both countries, additional support for Iraqi army units, counter-terrorism activities to hamstring ISIS, and renewed humanitarian aid for victims of ISIS militants. ´This counter-terrorism campaign will be waged through a steady, relentless effort to

A new proposal for campaign finance reform would make Saturday Night Live’s political skits illegal, Republican Sen. Ted Cruz has warned. The Senate is debating a proposal to add a constitutional amendment allowing Congress reverse a 2010 Supreme Court decision and restore limits on corporate campaign spending. Republicans say the proposal, put forward by Dems, is an attack on free speech. Cruz, however, went one step further and connected the dots to NBC’s late-night sketch comedy show, and its exec producer Lorne Michaels. “Lorne Michaels could be put in jail under this amendment for making fun of any politician.

The Republican-controlled House voted Tuesday to condemn President Barack Obama for failing to give 30-day notice to Congress about the exchange in May of American prisoner Bowe Bergdahl for five Taliban leaders held at the U.S. prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. The vote was 249-163, with 22 Democrats — many locked in tough re-election races — breaking ranks and backing the nonbinding resolution. ´By setting free five top Taliban commanders from U.S. custody, the Obama administration made Americans less safe,´ Speaker John Boehner said in a statement.

Less than 48 hours ahead of a planned address to the nation on how the U.S. plans to combat Islamic State terrorists operating in Iraq and Syria, President Obama dined at the White House Monday with a slate of foreign policy experts.

Half of all bird species in North America — including the bald eagle — are at risk of severe population decline by 2080 if the swift pace of global warming continues, the National Audubon Society concluded in a study released Monday. "The scale of the disruption we´re projecting is a real punch in the gut," said Gary Langham, chief Audubon scientist.

This morning, New York Times reporter Kim Severson spiced up her obituary for Chick-fil-A founder S. Truett Cathy by tagging him "a symbol of intolerance" who presided over a "restaurant chain [seen by some] as a symbol of hate." Here´s the relevant excerpt (emphasis mine): When he introduced himself, S. Truett Cathy often played down his job. “I cook chicken for a living,” he would say. And on the surface, that was true.

WASHINGTON--US President Barack Obama will tell the American people on Wednesday night that he plans to order strikes against Islamic State forces in both Syria and Iraq until the group is ultimately destroyed.

Churchill came under intense scrutiny and was fired by the University of Colorado at Boulder. What concerned Kelly most in the first part of the interview was that “little Eichmanns” comment, the argument being that Eichmann played a role in horrible atrocities even though he didn’t directly carry out the Final Solution, which he views as similar to the financial

Free money for everyone! With weak job growth, rising poverty, and the rich continuing to devour nearly all economic growth, it´s an idea that is gaining more credence. Arguments for a universal basic income (UBI) — in which everyone without exception would receive an equal stipend — have flourished in policy-centric areas of the internet, including The Week. Advocates of UBI see it as a blunter, more effective means of reducing poverty and shrinking the inequality gap. But even if UBI proponents are right on the merits, Tyler Cowen argues that the politics of the issue are not favorable. Under
