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.

Is there any way to "earmark" all monies in the bill to fund only border security, enforcement and deportation courts that Dingy Harry can not convert and divert it to 0bama´s "stash?"

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.

Do your part, don´t vote for nor hire anyone with a Latino name. Every house I went by during the last primary with a Latino living there had a Latino sign out in the yard.

Since they do it, I guess its AOK.

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.

Top general says half

working with US against ISIS
Fox News, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 9/17/2014 3:50:25 AM     Post Reply
The U.S. military´s top officer said Wednesday that almost half of Iraq´s army is incapable of working against the Islamic State militant group, while the other half needs to be rebuilt with the help of U.S. advisers and military equipment. (Snip) Sectarianism has been a major problem for the Iraqi security forces for years and is in part a reflection of resentments that built up during the decades of rule under Saddam Hussein, who repressed the majority Shiite population, and the unleashing of reprisals against Sunnis after U.S. forces toppled him in April 2003. Sunni resistance led to the relatively brief rise of an extremist group called

Vikings tell Adrian Peterson

The Minnesota Vikings issued a statement early Wednesday saying that running back Adrian Peterson must remain away from all team activities until his felony child abuse case is settled. The statement, from team owners Zygi and Mark Wilf, said that Peterson was being placed on the Exempt/Commissioner´s Permission list. The move was an about-face for the team, which reinstated Peterson to the active roster Monday after deactivating him following the All-Pro running back´s indictment Friday. "In conversations with the NFL over the last two days, the Vikings advised the League of the team´s decision to revisit the situation,"

Congress Gets Ready to Arm Syrian Rebels

Washington - The U.S. House of Representatives began debating legislation on Tuesday to authorize President Barack Obama´s plan to arm and train moderate Syrian rebels to fight Islamic State militants, and lawmakers said the measure would likely pass the full Congress by the end of this week. (Snip) House members were expected to vote to pass the amendment on Wednesday, congressional aides and lawmakers said. It would then be sent to the U.S. Senate for approval this week, before lawmakers leave Washington to spend the next six weeks campaigning for the Nov. 4 congressional elections.

Baghdad - Militia justice is simple, the fighters explained. “We break into an area and kill the ones who are threatening people,” said one 18-year-old fighter with Asaib Ahl al-Haq, a Shiite militia that operates as a vigilante force around Baghdad. (Snip) Once a leading killer of American troops, the militia is spearheading the fight against the Sunni extremists of the Islamic State, also known by the acronyms ISIS and ISIL. That means Asaib Ahl al-Haq and the United States military are now fighting on the same side, though each insists they will not work together. But the power and autonomy of Asaib Ahl al-Haq and other Shiite militias

The cardiac arrest leading to Joan Rivers´ death happened as the comedian´s personal doctor began performing a biopsy on her vocal cords, a source close to the death investigation told CNN. A staff member at Manhattan´s Yorkville Endoscopy clinic told investigators that the doctor, who has not been publicly identified, took a selfie photo in the procedure room while Rivers was under anesthesia, the source said. Rivers, 81, was at the clinic for a scheduled endoscopy by another doctor, gastroenterologist Dr. Lawrence Cohen. That procedure, intended to help diagnose her hoarse voice and sore throat, involved the insertion of a

Washington: The US Defence Department program accused of fuelling the militarisation of local law enforcement is stirring controversy again, this time for providing equipment and weapons to school police. Law enforcement agencies affiliated with at least 120 schools, colleges and universities have received gear through the program, according to a Washington Post review of data from 33 states. The items received include at least five grenade launchers, hundreds of rifles and eight mine-resistant, ambush-protected (MRAP) vehicles, the hulking machines designed to withstand the kind of roadside attacks seen in Iraq and

Major Sponsors Turn Up Heat on
NFL Over Handling of Abuse Scandal

Major corporate sponsors are dishing out some heat to the NFL over its handling of domestic violence issues and other recent scandals — but most so far have stopped short of pulling their advertising. Budweiser became the largest and latest sponsor to speak out, saying Tuesday it was "disappointed and increasingly concerned" by the scandals. (Snip) While it fell shy of yanking its sponsorship, the strongly worded statement by the U.S. division of brewing giant Anheuser-Busch InBev NV said it was "not yet satisfied with the league´s handling of behaviors that so clearly go against our own company culture and moral code."

Bobby Jindal fights back

Republicans have found a way to combat Democrats’ “war on women” strategy by calling for more open access to contraception, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal said Tuesday. GOP Senate candidates have made inroads in North Carolina and Colorado by saying the answer to this year’s Supreme Court decision ruling that companies cannot be forced to pay for employees’ contraceptive care is to make birth control medications available over the counter without a prescription. Pro-choice activists and Democrats have vehemently rejected that, arguing that birth control pills will actually become more expensive if offered over the

Istanbul, Turkey - American journalist Steven Sotloff began his last journey into Syria with a surprise gift for his fixer, Yosef Abobaker. It was a small camera. (Snip) Then came the real surprise for the two men: about 15 masked ISIS gunmen jumped out of three cars and took them captive, beginning a dark tale that eventually led to Abobaker´s release, but ended in Sotloff´s beheading. In an interview with CNN this week, Abobaker provided a detailed account of how he, Sotloff and three armed guards were abducted in Syria by ISIS fighters in August 2013, but since then, never once did U.S. officials try to interview Abobaker about

In a much anticipated announcement, NASA Administrator Charles Bolden said today (Sep. 16) during a webcast that spacecraft made by Boeing Company and SpaceX will carry American astronauts to the International Space Station (ISS) by 2017. Two vehicles, Boeing´s CST-100 and SpaceX´s Dragon V2, will launch from Cape Canaveral in Florida and take Americans into low Earth orbit, before docking with the ISS. Each company will run between two to six missions, carrying teams of four astronauts per mission. The report ends months of speculation about what company or companies would win the contract,

Washington - The current threat posed by the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, or ISIS, will test not only the resolve and strategic judgment of America and its allies, but also our nation’s fidelity to a basic constitutional principle. Our Constitution reserves to Congress the power to declare war and designates our president as the commander in chief, but our recent history has been characterized by executive overreach and legislative abdication in the initiation of military action. The current crisis gives us an opportunity to restore the proper balance between the branches. America’s history since 2001 should compel us to fix the way

Washington - Militants for the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria have traveled to Mexico and are just miles from the United States. They plan to cross over the porous border and will “imminently” launch car bomb attacks. And the threat is so real that federal law enforcement officers have been placed at a heightened state of alert, and an American military base near the border has increased its security. As the Obama administration and the American public have focused their attention on ISIS in recent weeks, conservative groups and leading Republicans have issued stark warnings like those that ISIS and other extremists from Syria

First Lady Michelle Obama has made healthy eating and exercise her signature issue. But, a recent study published by the Sage Journal found that her “elitist” advice actually “shames poor and middle class mothers.” The College Fix added that the study found that Michelle Obama’s healthy eating program is also sexist. It’s also sexist, the study’s authors suggest, noting that “intentionally or not, it places the burden of a healthy home-cooked meal on women.” Sage Journals published the study by North Carolina researchers Sarah Bowen, Sinikka Elliott and Joslyn Brenton. Here are a few of the findings: Magazines such as Good Housekeeping and

President Barack Obama unveiled his plan to tackle the Ebola crisis in West Africa on Tuesday, promising to do far more to tackle the deadly virus he said could result in "hundreds of thousands of people infected" without US intervention. "More than 2,400 men, women, and children are known to have died and we strongly suspect that the actual death toll is higher than that," Obama said in a speech at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, Georgia. "Hospitals, clinics, and the few treatment centers that do exist have been completely overwhelmed." The president was particularly dire

Democrats are now (very slightly) favored to hold the Senate majority on Nov. 4, according to Election Lab, the Post´s statistical model of the 2014 midterm elections. Election Lab puts Democrats´ chances of retaining their majority at 51 percent -- a huge change from even a few months ago when the model predicted that Republicans had a better than 80 percent chance of winning the six seats they need to take control. (Worth noting: When the model showed Republicans as overwhelming favorites, our model builders -- led by George Washington University´s John Sides -- warned that the model could and

The Obama administration is preparing to introduce major steps to phase out production of a popular chemical coolant used in refrigerators and air conditioners, citing growing evidence that the substance is contributing to the warming of the planet. The White House will announce on Tuesday a series of voluntary commitments by some of the country’s largest chemical firms and retailers to move rapidly away from R-134a and similar compounds used in nearly every office, home and automobile in the country, according to current and former U.S. officials familiar with the effort.

Bill Clinton never inhaled. Rush Limbaugh says he never smoked it. Marco Rubio won´t answer whether he ever did smoke pot but Sarah Palin admitted she smoked it in her youth and didn´t like it. Those pushing to have more states legalize marijuana consider this drug rather harmless, medically beneficial and liberal politicians consider this issue one that will attract voters. I don´t blame Rubio for not discussing whether he indulged n his youth or not. He is a public official with young children and carries a different responsibility than the rest of us.

On Monday, the 50-year-old politician was photographed by paparazzi looking fresh-faced without any cosmetics on. But instead of getting mad about the slyly snapped no-makeup shots, the former Alaska governor took to Facebook to joke about the incident.
