Will House pass ´skinnied down
bill to tackle child immigration crisis?

Christian Science Monitor, by David Clark Scott

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 7/27/2014 5:49:26 PM

If Congress is going to address the child immigration crisis on the US-Mexico border before its five-week summer recess, this would be the last week to act. On Sunday, Texas Democratic Congressman Henry Cuellar and Texas Sen. John Cornyn were both on ABC´s "This Week," pitching their solution to the child migrant crisis. Senator Cronyn said he expects the House of Representatives to offer a "skinnied-down" emergency funding bill in response to President Obama's $3.7 billion request (Snip) The Cornyn-Cuellar proposal would change the law so that Central American minors are treated the same as Mexican and Canadian minors are now

Comments:
A bipartisan solution, except hate giving a billion dollars of extortion money to get it through Congress. Five days before summer recess and the clock is ticking...

A skinnied down amount of money followed by another amount followed by more and more and more. Once the first dollar is spent a judge will disallow any attempt to stop funding.

The pro Cornyn people who campaigned for and voted for him are responsible for his actions to hurt Texas and USA. Everyone knew he was pro illegals and pro amnesty before they voted.

He raised money to run terrible lying ads to defeat a conservative anti amnesty Republican that loves America in Mississippi.

It is almost certain that Boehner and his buds will do their best to pass something, anything.

And they have a good chance due to their well known tendency to panic and appease the Democrat minority.

John only needs about 20 GOP loyalists to pass whatever the Democrats want. It would be a blunder which is why I expect him to try it.

It´s tiresome when posters immediately trash Republicans without bothering to actually read the article.

FTA- " Cornyn and Rep. Cuellar have proposed changes to the Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act of 2008 to speed up the deportation process of minors."
The most amazing part of this bill is that a Democrat
is a co sponsor of a
bill to speed up deportation..
When minors come here illegally from non
border countries in Central America, they are treated differently than those from Canada and Mexico.
Cornyn and Cuellar want to streamline the complicated and time consuming deportation
process established in the 2008 bill .
They want to eliminate the involvement of HHS ,
which often grants custody of minors to family members already here, legally or not.
And afterwards , 46% don´t bother showing up for their delayed hearings.
The White House and illegal immigration advocates and many posters here are against the bill.
Strange bedfellows it seems.

Somali pirates free journalist
and claim £1m ransom was paid
Guardian [UK] *, by Roy Greenslade    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 9/25/2014 4:32:16 AM     Post Reply
Somali pirates who abducted a journalist and held him for ransom claim they were paid a $1.6m (£1m) to release him. Michael Scott Moore was released on Tuesday after being held captive for two years and eight months. He holds both German and American citizenship. According to a pirate leader, identified as Bile Hussein, negotiations were conducted with Somali intermediaries acting on behalf of Germany. A German spokesman would not confirm that money was paid and US policy prohibits paying ransoms. German federal police had worked "very closely" with US authorities to win Moore´s freedom.

Obama Praises Muslim Cleric Who

President Barack Obama favorably quoted and praised on Wednesday in his speech before the United Nations a controversial Muslim cleric whose organization has reportedly endorsed the terror group Hamas and supported a fatwa condoning the murder of U.S. soldiers in Iraq. Obama in his remarks offered praise to controversial cleric Sheikh Abdallah Bin Bayyah and referred to him as a moderate Muslim leader who can help combat the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant’s (ISIL or ISIS) radical ideology. However, Bin Bayyah himself has long been engulfed in controversy for many of his views, including the reported backing of

Untangling Obama’s Legal
Justification for Syria Strikes

With the expansion of the U.S.-led military campaign against Islamic State and al Qaeda-linked Khorasan in Syria, the Obama administration has come out with a more detailed explanation of the legal basis for the airstrikes. Legal scholars are taking stab at untangling the strands of legal arguments articulated in the administration’s letters to Congress and the United Nations sent out Tuesday. Justifying the military effort under domestic and international law, the White House is pointing to Congress’s 2001 authorization to fight al Qaeda, its 2002 authorization of force in Iraq, international legal theory, and the president’s

Charitable commitments have been made. Important topics like Ebola and elephant poaching have been discussed. World leaders from President Obama to Prime Minister Shinzo Abe of Japan have convened. But, for me, perhaps the person who stands out is the friendly 20-something press aide who the Clinton Global Initiative tasked with escorting me to the restroom. She waited outside the stall in the ladies’ room at the Sheraton Hotel, where the conference is held each year.

India´s first-ever mission to Mars is ready to make its historic arrival this week, hot on the heels of a NASA probe that just reached the Red Planet on Sunday. After a 10-month trek, India´s Mars Orbiter Mission (MOM) is expected to reach Mars on at 7:41 a.m. India Standard Time on Wednesday, Sept. 24 (that´s 10:11 p.m. EDT on Tuesday, Sept. 23) after a firing its engine for 24 minutes to enter orbit around the planet. Confirmation of the success (or failure) of this crucial maneuver should come to ground control minutes later, mission officials have said.

It’s hard to imagine that any school would have a problem with a book about a Christian family that helped Jews escape the Holocaust. But Springs Charter Schools in Temecula, Calif., not only had a problem with “The Hiding Place,” they also took issue with any other book that was written by a Christian author or included a Christian message. “We do not purchase sectarian educational materials and do not allow sectarian materials on our state-authorized lending shelves,” Superintendent Kathleen Hermsmeyer wrote in a letter to attorneys at the Pacific Justice Institute (PJI).

Health officials in West Texas have begun testing some babies for tuberculosis after the revelation that more than 700 infants at an El Paso hospital were exposed to a worker found to have the disease. The children may have been exposed at a nursery in the Providence Memorial Hospital of El Paso between September 2013 and last month, when a health care worker tested positive for TB. (Snip) Saldivar said local health officials do not know why the worker was not tested by the hospital until Aug. 21 if the person had symptoms as early as December. Also, officials are still investigating how and when the worker became infected,

The Republican Party’s top leader in Congress is catching flak for a comment that appears to call the jobless lazy – a comment that has rekindled an old challenge for the party: appearing insensitive or uncaring toward Americans who are poor or in financial difficulty. House Speaker John Boehner was asked after a speech last week to comment on a plan for addressing poverty – promoted by a Republican colleague, Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin. Speaker Boehner gave a response that was favorable toward Representative Ryan´s plan, but not so favorable about Americans’ work ethic.

Why is each human face unique? It´s a question a child might ask. The tempting response for a harried parent is, "Just because." After all, no two products of nature, be they clouds, snowflakes, or fingerprints, are exact duplicates. Mother Nature is no Henry Ford; those variations in shape, color, and texture are just part of the production process. (Snip) Your face, they say, is what biologists call a signal, a mechanism that, like the shimmering tail of a peacock or the Day-Glo skin of a poison frog, sends a message to other organisms about who you are. But how could one possibly test this hypothesis?

The FBI requires state and local police to keep quiet about the capabilities of a controversial type of surveillance gear that allows law enforcement to eavesdrop on cell phone calls and track individual people based on the signals emitted by their mobile devices, according to a bureau document released recently under a Freedom of Information Act request. The December 2012 document is a heavily redacted letter between the FBI and police in Tacoma, Wash., as the local department sought to acquire an IMSI catcher, sometimes described as a “fake cell phone tower” because it tricks individual phones into routing their

President Barack Obama returned a formal military salute with a one-handed coffee-cup salute Tuesday, only a few hours after he dispatched the nation’s military on their attack mission into northern Syria. White House aides posted the sloppy salute video on Instagram. The commander in chief offered the coffee-cup salute when he disembarked from his U.S. Marine Corps helicopter in New York, as he made his way to the United Nations General Assembly. “President Obama just landed in New York for #UNGA2014,” says the caption. The salute is “the most important of all military courtesies,” says a manual for Marine Corps officer candidates. “In some situations,

President Barack Obama saluted a pair of United States Marines on Tuesday while holding what appeared to be a styrofoam cup in his saluting hand, a breach of military regulations that won´t win him fans among veterans and servicemen. Obama is known for drinking tea, not coffee, when he travels, especially before delivering speeches. His quasi-saluting gesture was an instant embarrassment for the White House, and not because his environmentally taboo drinkware clashed with the green-policy speech he was on his way to deliver at a UN Climate Summit.

On Tuesday, shortly after announcing to the American public that the United States was now bombing ISIS in Syria, the President of the United States flew to New York to address the United Nations – on climate change. His speech mixed high-flown sentiment with apologies for America, and pledged American sacrifice in the name of a lofty goal without evidence that such sacrifice would in any way contribute to attaining that goal. In other words, it was a typical Barack Obama whirligig. Even as American warplanes struck targets in Syria, even as regimes tottered in Jordan and Iraq and Yemen,

Although Emanuel claims that *he* doesn´t want to live past the age of 75, the article itself could have been a listicle titled, "Top 15 Reasons No One Over 75 Should Receive Healthcare."

Rush Limbaugh apparently tips generously, which sometimes makes people who dislike him feel quite awkward. In one case, a waitress-turned-award-winning-author revealed that she felt so awkward, that she donated both of his $1,000 tips to an abortion charity. Merritt Tierce, whose debut novel Love Me Back chronicles her time at a high-end Dallas steakhouse, revealed in an interview with Dallas News that, at the time, she was also the executive director of the Texas Equal Abortion (TEA) Fund, which provides financial assistance to low-income women seeking abortions.

If there is one thing Chelsea Clinton is most worried about, it may be that her soon-to-be child will grow up in a world without elephants. Standing alongside her mother, Hillary Clinton, at the Clinton Global Initiative this afternoon, the very-pregnant former first daughter warned the plight of African elephants, killed for their ivory tusks, is an “existential” one, and said that if the current poaching rates continue, elephants could be few and far between within the next decade. If so, this means Chelsea Clinton’s favorite animal could be something her child would never know. “The child Marc and I

We hadn’t slept together, but the kisses had been the type of kisses you walk away from with shaky knees and blind hope.

During the Bush administration, national Democrat leaders threatened to kill the ABC network´s broadcast license if a miniseries unfavorable to the Clinton administration wasn´t censored to satisfy Democrats. ABC complied. Earlier this year, Democrats started a push for a Constitutional Amendment to gut (literally) the First Amendment. Over the weekend, Democrats launched a campaign to get -- in their own words -- "Rush Limbaugh off the air." The petition to get Limbaugh off the air comes straight from the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) in the form of a fundraising/petition email.
