House revives, approves
border crisis bill – as
Obama vows to ‘act alone’

Fox News, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:SoCalGal, 8/1/2014 11:33:17 PM

(Video)The House late Friday revived and approved a Republican-authored border crisis bill after GOP leaders hurriedly resolved an internal battle that scuttled the vote a day earlier – but with the Senate on recess and the House soon to follow, there’s little chance of any bill reaching President Obama’s desk until the fall. The president now is vowing to act unilaterally to address the illegal immigration issue. The House legislation was approved on a 223-189 vote. The new version of the bill adds additional funding for the National Guard and includes policy changes meant to speed deportations of illegal immigrant children surging

Would it be safe to say Congress has been neutered and useless because he has a pen and a phone ?

This is what lawlessness looks like, in case anyone wants to pay attention. A president of the USA has decided to simply ignore the law, co-equal branches of government, and the Constitution and nobody seems to want to do anything about it.

Where is the $@#% press? Nixon didn´t try to get away with a 10th of this stuff and they properly hounded him from office.

"border CRISIS"

Who created the crisis? This Administration - and (it grieves me to write because I love my faith) The Progressive Catholic Bishops.

The Pope is a progressive and so are his acolytes and I believe their intent is to end up with some kind of religious indifferentism - basically the everything is relative - who am I to judge - all gods are the same - heck, we would never judge one world - non-religion belief system. Scarey stuff.

´ gotta love that paternal, "I know better, you kids could not solve it among yourselves, so adult to the rescue", mentality of Obama. It´s anything BUT an adult to the rescue.

The only thing the House of Representatives should give Obama´s request is enough money for bus tickets and food until their departure-home to Central and South America, etc.

Obama is wasting our time, money, energy, lives on this despicable situation he created. Hopefully the voters will give his party another shellacking in Nov.

His sycophants are quite active on the web: nasty, defiant, dismissive, lying, finger pointing at pubs and of course Bush. BTW: Can anyone think of anything Obama accomplished last month? lol.

Have to wonder what would it take to get congress to delay/cancel their vacation. This reminds me of Nero fiddles while Rome burns.

Regarding Obama, he has certainly showed the vulnerabilities and flaws in our governing system. Our checks and balances do not work. Is the system broken or is it the people who are suppose to enforce the system that are broke? Have to imagine honest and competent politicians would have found a way to stop Obama. In the end, the problem is with the voting populace who persist in voting for corrupt politicians.

An EO should no longer have the force of law. Especially when it is being abused.

What this House bill does is give Republicans a chance to hammer the dems during the recess for doing nothing to solve the problem.

If the RNC does its job it will start running ads NOW through the recess extolling dems to act seriously laying out the common sense language a bill needs. If they do this obama will be unable to issue EO´s. IMHO if they do not it is because the CoC said no.

I see a few knee jerk reactions from people who can´t admit that Boehner can do anything right. I think the House stood tall and so did Boehner. So the country can´t be run by the House alone. They did what they could. Now, at least, Obama can´t say they did nothing. If the press reports honestly, the House wins this time.

Stood tall? How so? Do we agree that the Republicans favor "immigrtion reform"? Do we agree the American public does not? So how does any of this bill serve to show any tall standing? It´s boob bait. If anything the message is we´re going all in when the time comes...and the time will come after the November elections, by which time the "children" will already be relocated to a neighborhood near you. And Rick Perry will get his "border security" money...for running a National Guard taxi service to the nearest Border Patrol collection point and keeping his mumbling to a reasonable political pitch during this "humanitarian crisis." Let´s pull back all the curtains on this bi-partisan fraud supporting an invasion.

Republicans have for the most part have lost the propaganda war on this subject. It makes me want to scream because the majority of Americans want our border secured and do not want the influx of illegals that will negatively impact our economy, our culture, and now alarmingly, the public health. The media can´t say the word, children, enough, even FOX News. They focus on those "poor innocent children" and ignore the MS13 gang members recruiting members at the detention centers. They also ignore the public health safety issue.

Illegals are being released in American communities to spread whatever diseases they carry, TB, swine flu, lice, scabies, measles, etc. to anyone coming in contact with them. How is that not illegal? Does no one remember Ellis Island? This is wrong on so many levels and the Republicans still can bring themselves to present the whole truth to the American people. You can be sure if the roles were reversed and a republican president had encouraged illegals to make that dangerous journey, the democrats would be united. They would hold daily press conferences. The media would be all over those centers. The political pundits would come unhinged.

However, once again, the Republicans have the legal and moral high ground on an issue and are still unable to devise a strategy to expose Obama´s willingness to use children to advance his political agenda. It is clear to anyone who pays attention, and yet, the Republicans still refuse to unite and stand up and do the right thing.

Obama will continue to keep pushing the envelope knowing that the liberal Democrats and the liberal media have his back, and that the Republicans will never reverse his ultra liberal moves to bring many millions of new poor and uneducated potential Democrat voters into the USA. Whatever number of illegal aliens who Obama gives a immigration status that is not underpinned by law will get to stay indefinitely with US work permits. A lot of the Republicans are quietly OK with Obama doing that because of the cheap labor factor, as long as he does not grant them some invented status that allows them to legally vote in US elections, but that does not mean that a lot of them will not end up voting illegally anyway after registering to vote under the Democrat Motor Voter loopholes. That´s what this is all about.

I´m confused. Obama says this is a do-nothing congress but when the House finally passes an immigration bill Obama asks ´why are they passing a bill I won´t sign?´ Is congress acting or is the senate, which is in recess, obstructing? Unfortunately, the MSM only reports the part of the story which favors Obama and his convoluted rhetoric. Too many lazy citizens do not try to understand what is happening and only see the part that gets the most attention--Obama´s lies.

Once again Ted Cruz has created a fiasco for the Republicans. If Republicans fail to win the Senate this fall, it will because of his sabotage of the house immigration bill. Besides acting to confirm the Obama charge that Republicans are cold hearted, this also deflected attention from the fact that Harry Reid and the rest of the Senate Democrats are the ones obstructing progress by refusing to even consider nearly every bill sent to them by the House. The blame for a do-nothing congress belongs to the Democrat Senate.

I wish Republicans would wake up to the fact that following Ted Cruz will only lead to political disaster.

# 12 obviously does their homework and understands the Constitution instead of engaging in the usual knee jerk
trashing of Boehner and McConnell.
Ala Limbaugh , who is one of the most egregious purveyor of low and false information.
The Senate , controlled by Harry Reid´s 55 Democrats will not take up this bill , which will give Barry
the excuse to act with an EO.
Only 4 Republicans voted against the bill.
Democrat Cuellar of TX voted for it.
The sole Democrat.
There are 435 House members.
199 Democrats ( 1 vacant seat ) and 234 Republicans , with about 12 hard line Tea Party.
Most House Republicans are conservative , but, not Tea Party.
Bills require 218 votes to pass.
When every Democrat led by Pelosi is against him along with
12 Tea Party House members led by Ted Cruz , plus 5 other Republicans,
it´s nearly impossible for Boehner and the remaining 217 House Republicans to get any bill passed.

"The House legislation was approved on a 223-189 vote.
The new version of the bill adds additional funding for the National Guard
and includes policy changes meant to speed deportations of illegal immigrant children surging across the southern border."

" Further, a separate measure was approved later Friday by a 216-192 vote that would prevent Obama
from expanding a program that suspended deportations for some illegal immigrants
who came to the U.S. as children."
Yeah, Boehner caved....

Ol´ Sad Eyes has certainly earned the cynicism about him. This bill may have some merits. Otherwise it would not serve to get more conservatives out to vote for Republicans. And that is what it appears to be because of the earned cynicism. You can fool the people only so many times. The establishment trashing of conservatism is hurting their electoral chances and this move may help a smidgen in the election but will not remove the mistrust

It appears the fulcrum of Turkish sensitivity and support for ISIS has been identified. The tipping point reached. As we previously outlined, the action of Turkish Prime Minister Recep Erdogan reflected a tacit alliance with the overall goals of ISIS. However, also as previously discussed, we anticipated a forced political shift as the Kurdish populations continued to be driven in greater numbers toward the Turkish borders. Our educated hunch was the quid-pro-quo (which led to the quiet release of the 49 Turkish hostages) included an acceptance by Erdogan to allow the Sunni jihadists, ISIS, a certain amount of, well, ‘Islamic

Past financial deals of Treasury Secretary Jack Lew and Obama trade czar Michael Froman could be dragged into the administration’s bid to jam retroactive taxes on corporations that set up tax-avoiding operations overseas. Critics of the administration’s plan to end so-called corporate “inversions” are looking at the investments that both Obama officials had in the Cayman Islands, a tax haven, before joining Team Obama. If corporations are going to lose their tax advantages retroactively under a plan hatched by Lew and top officials, they said, then maybe there is a way to also target them through legislative amendments.

Deadly, irrational, and determined, the intruder snuck across a weakened perimeter. Eluding capture, the intruder was detained only after missteps and close calls. The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered. Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events. A mental case jumps the White House fence. He makes it to the East Room before he’s tackled by an off-duty Secret Service agent. Initial statements turn out to be misleading or false.

Instead, Obama just gave every Republican ad-maker in the country more fodder for negative ads linking Democratic candidates to him.

A presidential defeat isn’t an easy thing to bounce back from. And Mitt Romney did it twice. So it was understandable that after he lost the presidential race in 2012, he was adamant about closing the door to the possibility of a third campaign. But recently, speculation is whirling that Romney may not be so adamant anymore. When asked if he was running in a New York Times interview published earlier this week, Romney said : “I have nothing to add to the story. We’ve got a lot of people looking at the race,” he said. “We’ll see what happens.” That response, which

WASHINGTON — Representative Elijah E. Cummings of Maryland was at the grocery store the other day when he ran into an elderly black woman who expressed growing concern about President Obama’s safety.
