While Border Agents’ Morale Is At
An ‘All Time Low,’ DHS Spends $450K
For Luxurious DC Gym Memberships

Independent Review Journal, by Caroline Schaeffer

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 8/7/2014 10:46:02 AM

In an interview with Fox News, border agent Chris Cabrera said that the lawlessness and influx of illegal immigrants has left border agents wiped out and demoralized. As National Review Online reports, Cabrera says he’s never seen it this bad among the border force. “Even if he is a confirmed gang member, a confirmed criminal, even by self-admission, we for some reason don’t send them back to their home country – we release them into our country,” Cabrera said. As a result, Cabrera said “morale is at an all-time low right now” because agents are “not allowed to do the job that they

Under Obama, the DHS is against homeland security. It should be eliminated asap.

Most people pay for their own gym memberships. These 236 employees already receive twice the pay and benefits of private sector workers, so they should be thankful, not have any morale problems, and pay for their own gym memberships, which they can well afford.

The liberal Democrats are out of their minds allowing a wide open borderline. Most of the illegal aliens that the border patrol catches and processes along the borderline have no credible identification in their possession, and bogus birth certificates can be purchased in Mexico bearing any name, date of birth and nationality as cheap as about $50.00.

When the border patrol processes those illegal aliens most times they just have to put down the name, date and place of birth, and nationality that the illegal alien decides to use at the moment and the border patrol is prohibited from fingerprinting children.

So a seasoned illegal alien criminal with a violent past who is really 21 or 22 years old can easily claim that he or she is 16 or 17 years of age so as to fit within Obama´s catch and release program causing the border patrol to have to release that adult criminal alien into the USA. Most third world countries will not tell US authorities if their citizens have a violent criminal history as it is to their benefit to get rid of them into the USA. To believe that any criminal alien will appear for an immigration court hearing is really stupid.

How would you like to have an adult illegal alien with a violent criminal history who is actually 21or 22 years old being admitted into your local high school seated next to your 16 year old daughter, and you better believe that is going to happen.

Unfortunately as long as the liberal Democrats are running Washington, DC this dysfunction on the borderline will continue, as there are too many potential future Democrat voters out there in the illegal alien population group for the liberal Democrats to change their open borders immigration game plan for America.

I also surmise that the 236 gym memberships went to 236 Obama political appointees who are currently DHS big shots and not to the rank and file DHS civil service employees.

Megyn Kelly faced off with State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki tonight over claims by former Obama Cabinet official Leon Panetta that withdrawing troops from Iraq may have caused the current chaos going on in that country. Kelly pressed Psaki on exactly why President Obama didn’t want to leave a residual force of several thousand troops behind in Iraq. Psaki insisted that these accounts of what happened three years ago were not based on facts, arguing that the U.S. couldn’t simply force all those troops on a sovereign nation, and troops didn’t have the protections they needed. Psaki also told Kelly

A recently retired Secret Service agent told MailOnline on Thursday that former director Julia Pierson´s resignation will be welcomed by the agency´s rank-and-file because ´people in the service thought she was a joke from Day One.´ He attributed her swift fall from grace to a cadre of ´p***ed off agents who had had enough´ of feeling disrespected by the service´s first female director. ´Putting her in charge was part of the [Obama] administration´s push to feminize the service after the "hookergate" nightmare,´ the agent said, referring to agents who were fired after patronizing prostitutes during a security-check trip to Colombia

An American freelance cameraman working for NBC News in Liberia has tested positive for Ebola and will be flown back to the United States for treatment. The infected freelancer was hired Tuesday to be a second cameraman for NBC News Chief Medical Editor and Correspondent Dr. Nancy Snyderman. Snyderman is with three other NBC News employees on assignment in Monrovia, reporting on the Ebola outbreak. The freelancer came down with symptoms on Wednesday, feeling tired and achy. As part of a routine temperature check, he discovered he was running a slight fever. He immediately quarantined himself and sought medical advice.

Health officials are refusing to answer growing questions about their response to the first Ebola case in the United States. Under intense questioning from reporters, officials with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Texas health department and the City of Dallas repeatedly declined Thursday to provide details about the steps being taken to prevent an outbreak. Texas Health Commissioner David Lakey, who participated in one press call Thursday, would not identify or describe the four individuals who have been quarantined due to possible exposure to Ebola. They were later referred to as "family members" at a separate press

Nanny Government: California, as is its wont, enacted another bunch of silly laws this week, topped by a ban on the plastic bags that we all find so handy. No wonder the once-Golden State is looking a bit dull and faded these days. On Tuesday, Gov. Jerry Brown signed into a law a bill that outlaws single-use plastic bags at grocery and convenience stores. It´s the first statewide plastic-bag ban in the country and will take effect in supermarkets next year. The basis of this feel-good law is supposedly environmental protection.

Crime: The Oklahoma beheading case involving a jailhouse convert to Islam raises fears that the administration´s early release of inmates serving time for drug crimes in the name of "racial justice" could fuel terrorism. Alton Nolen, who was arrested for beheading a co-worker and trying to behead another, converted to Islam while serving time on crack-cocaine charges. Under the Justice Department´s drug-sentencing reform, Nolen was eligible for early release. He got out in 2013, serving just two years of a six-year sentence. It´s a tragic shame he wasn´t locked up longer. Will there be similar regrets after Justice springs thousands

JPMorgan Chase Says More

Compromised in Cyberattack

A cyberattack this summer on JPMorgan Chase compromised more than 76 million household accounts and seven million small-business accounts, making it among the largest corporate hacks ever discovered. The latest revelations, which were disclosed in a regulatory filing on Thursday, vastly dwarf earlier estimates that hackers had gained access to roughly one million customer accounts. The new details about the extent of the cyberattack — which began in June but was not discovered until July — sent JPMorgan scrambling for the second time in just three months to contain the fallout. As the severity of the attack became more clear in recent

An investigative reporter whose private files were illegally seized during a raid on her home will receive $50,000 as part of a settlement with the Department of Homeland Security. Audrey Hudson, an award-winning journalist most recently at the Washington Times, told The Daily Signal she was awoken by her barking dog around 4:30 a.m. on Aug. 6, 2013, to discover armed government agents had descended on her property under the cover of darkness. The agents had a search warrant for her husband’s firearms. As they scoured the home, Hudson was read her Miranda rights. While inside Hudson’s house, a U.S. Coast

It only took four years for the feds to finally indict a high-ranking government official at the center of the General Services Administration’s (GSA) scandalous Las Vegas conference that fleeced taxpayers out of a million dollars. The lavish event, held by the GSA for its employees, featured luxury accommodations for staff and their loved ones, fine cuisine, wild parties and expensive gifts. Adding insult to injury, dozens of agency workers were awarded cash bonuses for arranging the outlandish Sin City celebration. Details of this atrocity were featured in a GSA Inspector General report published a few years after the exorbitant 2010

The Obama administration must acknowledge the existence of an independent investigation into former White House senior economics adviser Austan Goolsbee’s alleged unauthorized access to the Koch brother’s tax returns, a court ruled Tuesday. A federal judge ruled the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) must disclose to watchdog group Cause of Action whether records of an investigation exist. Cause of Action filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit after TIGTA refused to confirm or deny the existence of the investigation in what is commonly known as a “Glomar response.” “The court has ruled that the federal government cannot

Former President Jimmy Carter claimed Wednesday that he would have been re-elected and beaten Ronald Reagan in 1980 if had been more “manly” in his dealings with Iran. Interviewed by the show "CNBC Meets," Carter repeated his belief that the failed mission to free American hostages held in Tehran killed his chances, but then added that had he gone to war, America would have rewarded him with a second term in 1980.

My last article for American Thinker was too long. And too short. Too long because the gurus tell us articles should be about 600 words. My story about the president talking to the black caucus about white people inflicting constant racial injustice on black people came in at 1500 words. I was just getting warmed up. I thought it strange that at the same time the president was trying to persuade us that black people are relentless victims, black people were committing acts of racial violence in places like Seattle, Miami, Indianapolis, Bronx, Ferguson, Kansas City, Providence, Minneapolis and 18 miles from where

The quintessential question of Watergate was “what did the President know and when did he know it?” Obamagate, the vast scandal that encompasses an entire presidency, offers a preemptive answer. Obama didn’t know anything and he never knew it. At least not until, like smuggling weapons to druglords, bugging journalists, IRSing his political enemies and killing vets, his right hand found out about what his left hand was doing from the morning paper. After skipping 58% of his daily intelligence briefings in Term 1 and 59% of them in Term 2, he went on 60 Minutes and blamed intelligence agencies for being

Kansas Tea Party supporters are threatening to sit out the state’s pivotal Senate election, potentially dealing another blow to the reelection hopes of Sen. Pat Roberts (R-Kan.). Though schisms within the GOP base rarely have such an outsized impact on a general election contest, the lack of support from the conservative base could be devastating to the vulnerable Roberts’s chances against surging independent Greg Orman. Multiple sources tell The Hill that a group of Tea Party leaders in the state are meeting Wednesday to try to decide whether they should go to bat for the incumbent this fall or sit out of

President Obama this week committed professional suicide. Let me explain. There is a theory in politics that once a leader has fired 50 or more people from his or her administration, he or she is finished. The reason being that by creating so many enemies ‘outside the tent’, the tent itself becomes too deluged with poisonous bile to avoid sinking into a quagmire of back-stabbing ignominy. Obama went a lot further than firing 50 people. He managed to single-handedly alienate 200,000 employees in the American intelligence agencies by going on 60 Minutes and ruthlessly chucking them all under a bus

Count House Speaker John Boehner as a fan of Jeb Bush for president. He also hasn´t spoken to Texas GOP Sen. Ted Cruz in two years. The driving issue of the 2016 election will be “competence,” and if former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush runs, “he’s got a real shot” at winning, the Ohio Republican told the Cincinnati Enquirer on Tuesday. Boehner applauded Bush’s ability to “talk about Republican issues better than most anybody that we’ve got out there,” approving of his “real record of reform” as Florida’s governor from 1999 to 2007. He also called potential candidates Ohio Gov. John

A recent fight between Rosie O´Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg has producers at The View looking to add a cool-down room for the ladies. After being cut off by Goldberg during an episode last week so the show could go to commercial, O´Donnell began to express how upset she was and, after being told repeatedly by Goldberg it was not the right time to have that discussion, eventually got cursed out by the Oscar winner.

HOUSTON, Texas -- Former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay was found not guilty today by the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals. This is the highest appellate court in Texas for criminal cases and thus brings DeLay’s political persecution to an end. The court upheld the ruling last year from the Texas 3rd Court of Appeals. That decision tossed out the convictions on money laundering and conspiracy charges. At that time Justice Melissa Goodwin wrote “The fundamental problem with the state´s case was its failure to prove proceeds of criminal activity,” according to a September 19th report on Breitbart News.

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

House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) talks to a lot of people in the course of doing his job, but for some reason, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) isn’t one of them, how very curious. “I’ve not talked to him since he’s been elected,” Boehner revealed in an interview with the Cincinnati Enquirer, and left it at that. Cruz was elected in 2012 and played a major role in recent events that threatened to derail Boehner’s agenda, like the times Cruz attempted to hijack down the federal government over Obamacare, the debt ceiling, border patrol, etc. Boehner didn’t elaborate further, according to

Referring to Republicans, Pelosi said, "Their days are numbered. I know that in two years there will be a Democratic Congress and a Democratic President." Pelosi has publicly urged former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to run for president and said if Clinton does decide to run she would win. While she was clearly looking ahead the top House Democrat was careful not to concede the election this November. Pressed about the prediction she made
