Another Demorat for ILLEGAL (law breakers) Dem Rep. Joaquin Castro Accuses Gov. Perry of “Militarizing Our Border” By Deploying National Guard



Dem Rep. Joaquin Castro Accuses Gov. Perry of “Militarizing Our Border” By Deploying National Guard

Texas Rep. Joaquín Castro on Monday said Gov. Rick Perry’s is “militarizing our border” with his reported decision to deploy state National Guard troops there.

“We should be sending the Red Cross to the border not the National Guard to deal with this humanitarian crisis,” the Democratic congressman said in an email. “The children fleeing violence in Central America are seeking out border patrol agents. They are not trying to evade them. Why send soldiers to confront these kids?”

“Militarizing our border is the wrong response to the arrival of children,” Castro continued. “I remain hopeful that our state can provide a more helpful response than to send armed soldiers to greet children seeking refuge from violence.”

Castro was responding to a report from The Monitor that Perry is planning to deploy up to 1,000 Texas National Guard troops to the U.S.-Mexico border.

“At 2pm CDT today, Gov. Rick Perry will hold a press conference to discuss activating up to 1,000 National Guard troops to secure the Texas-Mexico border,” he wrote in a Facebook post on Monday.

They can try all they want to LIE and attack on those that are against law breakers and push for their illegals to be allowed in and even favored ahead of American citizens and those waiting in line legally. but it does not change that they are encouraging people to break our laws.

Garbage and love life Dem Rep. Luis Gutierrez: We Need Amnesty To “Punish” Americans Opposed To Illegal Immigration



Garbage and love life Dem Rep. Luis Gutierrez: We Need Amnesty To “Punish” Americans Opposed To Illegal Immigration

Luis Gutierrez to La Raza: Get Amnesty to 'Punish' Americans Against Illegal Immigration

Breitbart

Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) believes Hispanics should get amnesty and citizenship to punish Americans who are against illegal immigration. [...]

“We need to raise our voices, make ourselves citizens, sign up to vote and punish those who speak ill and criminalize children who come to our border,” Gutierrez reportedly said in Spanish this weekend.

After he told the La Raza conference in Los Angeles that President Barack Obama gave the Latino community a "down payment" with his temporary amnesty program that halted the deportations "of our people," Gutierrez urged Hispanics to seek retribution at the ballot box.

"We need to raise our voices, make ourselves citizens, sign up to vote and punish those who speak ill and criminalize children who come to our border," Gutierrez reportedly said in Spanish this weekend.

Gutierrez addressed the conference this weekend and also spoke on a panel. He said Obama assured him in a White House meeting last week with the Congressional Hispanic Caucus that he would use executive actions to be a "generous and broad" as he can to "stop the deportation of people each and every day," as Breitbart News reported.

Gutierrez has been one of the biggest proponents of a pathway to citizenship for all of the country's illegal immigrants.

Border Security Interview: Border Agents More Afraid Of Government Than Illegal Criminals




Border Security Interview: Border Agents More Afraid Of Government Than Illegal Criminals

INCREDIBLE VIDEO— MUST LISTEN ALL THE WAY THROUGH TO THE END… the video starts out with information most of us already know… but gradually provides more layers of information that may not be known. Interview covers the gamut of the illegal crisis situation with an in-depth analysis of the health threat to the crime threat and more from a border patrol perspective of what they are discovering.

Especially note the points made on Obama limiting access to ammo for the border guards and even denying ammo for shooting practice.

This is an interesting point considering Obama has no problem hoarding ammo for the Dept. of Education, Postal Service, TSA, Soc. Security and other bureaucracy arms of the Obama Administration.

Zach Taylor, a retired border patrol officer, gives his account of the situation on the US southern border. Taylor believes the US government is assisting in the downfall of America.

More of our Tax Dollars to Terrorists...Obama Sending $47 Million To Hamas-Run Gaza Strip



Obama Sending $47 Million To Hamas-Run Gaza Strip


The U.S. is sending $47 million in humanitarian aid to the besieged Gaza Strip to help tens of thousands of Palestinians there who have been forced from their homes since war broke out two weeks ago.

A State Department breakdown of the aid that was released Monday said nearly a third of the money — $15 million — will go to the United Nations’ refugee mission in Gaza.

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry was expected to discuss the aid with U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon in a meeting late Monday in Cairo.

Kerry arrived in the Egyptian capital only hours earlier in a U.S. push to help broker a truce between Israel and the militant group Hamas that controls Gaza.

Obama To Give Iran Another $2.8 Billion


Obama to Give Iran Another $2.8 Billion


The United States will give Iran access to another $2.8 billion over the next several months and appears to have conceded to Iran’s demand that it be permitted to domestically enrich uranium, the key component in a nuclear weapon, according to senior Obama administration officials.

In exchange for agreeing over the weekend to extend nuclear talks until late November, Iran will be given another $2.8 billion in unfrozen assets, the White House told reporters over the weekend, after President Barack Obama decided to extend the talks past their July 20 deadline.

The United States already returned to Iran $4.2 billion in unfrozen oil assetsduring the past six months of the interim nuclear deal and has now agreed to provide another $2.8 billion in exchange for an extension in the negotiations.

White House officials also appeared to admit that U.S. negotiators have told Tehran that they will allow it to preserve some of its domestic enrichment capabilities, something that Congress has opposed.

James Garner R.I.P Korean War Vet, Two Time Purple Heart Recipient and Legendary Actor and a Friend of Ours




James Garner, 5th Regimental Combat Team veteran dies at age 86


James Garner was also a veteran of the Korean War and two-time recipient of the Purple Heart. Garner’s first injury was to the face and hand from an enemy mortar round.

Always one for a good laugh, even on himself, Garner no doubt cracked a few jokes about his second injury from “friendly fire. “ Diving headfirst into a foxhole on April 23, 1951, the handsome Soldier was hit in the butt as rounds flew from a U.S. fighter jet overhead. It wasn’t until 32 years later that the government saw fit to award Garner the second Purple Heart.

Prior to being in the Army, James Garner was a Merchant Mariner, a job for which he was apparently very well suited, minus the part about not being able to overcome chronic seasickness. After leaving the Merchant Marines, he joined the National Guard, but after just seven months he was deployed to Korea as a Soldier in the Regular Army. He served with the 5th Regimental Combat Team a regiment of the United States Army infantry established in 1808 and continues to this day. The 2nd Battalion, 5th Infantry Regiment deployed in February 2014, to Herat Province, Afghanistan.

Best known to older fans as Bret Maverick in TV western series "Maverick" , James Garner entertained younger fans with his more recent big screen roles in "Victor/Victoria," "Space Cowboys" and "The Notebook." Somewhere in between, are dozens of episodes of “The Rockford Files” which, although officially ended in 1980, are still in syndication due to immense popularity.

In one of the true love stories in Hollywood, James Garner and Lois Clarke Garner were married in 1956 until his death yesterday. Although James Garner suffered a stroke in 2008 and was reportedly in poor health recently, news reports say he died of natural causes.

Nick worked with James Garner many times. He was a friend of ours and he was truly a very kind and funny man.

Gov. Perry To Send 1000 National Guard To The Border


Gov. Perry To Send 1000 National Guard To The Border


Texas Gov. Rick Perry is set to announce Monday that 1,000 U.S. National Guard troops will be deployed to the Rio Grande Valley, according to an internal memo detailing the plan obtained on Sunday.

State Sen. Juan “Chuy” Hinojosa, D-McAllen, confirmed that Perry is set to announce the deployment on Monday.


“Gov. Perry plans to hold a press conference tomorrow at 2 p.m. and he is calling up the National Guard to help out on the border,” Hinojosa said Sunday evening. “Of course, we are opposed to bringing up the National Guard. We do not need to militarize the border. These are families and children. We need to manage the situation.”

The National Guard troops will be deployed to the Valley to join the Texas Department of Public Safety in its recent surge to combat human smuggling and drug trafficking amid the influx of mostly Central Americans illegally crossing the Rio Grande.

“This is not a militarization of the border,” the memo states. “The DPS and the National Guard are working to keep any drug and human trafficking south of (U.S. Highway) 83 and with the goal of keeping any smuggling from entering major highways to transport East/West/and North.”

DPS officials want to send National Guard troops into western areas of the Valley and the ranch lands further north, according to the memo.

“Smuggling has supposedly according to DPS moved West on the border with an increase in Jim Hogg County,” the memo states. “DPS especially wants to apply the Guard in the rural areas to patrol.”

The National Guard deployment will cost up to $12 million per month, with $9.8 million of that personnel and vehicle costs and another $2.4 million estimated to cover the cost of helicopters.

“It would take a month to get 1,000 troops on the ground but they will only slowly call up the troops,” the memo states.

Activating the National Guard alongside DPS personnel will bring Texas’ total cost of deploying additional resources to the surge to $5 million per week.

“It is not clear where the money will come from in the budget,” the memo states, adding that Perry’s office has said the money will come from “non critical” areas, such as health care or transportation.

John Kerry Whines Fox News Won't Ever "Give Obama Admin Credit for Anything'



John Kerry Whines Fox News Won't Ever "Give Obama Admin Credit for Anything'

Secretary of State John Kerry and Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace had a tense exchange Sunday morning, even before the two got to Kerry's comments on an Israeli strike that were captured by Fox and played back to him.

Things got real heated after Wallace characterized the negotiations over Iran's nuclear deal as counterproductive. Kerry, who has been orchestrating the talks since even before he was Secretary, took particular umbrage at this, arguing that the Obama administration had achieved a rollback in Iran's nuclear development for the first time in a decade.



"I know you and others don't ever want to give the Obama administration credit for almost anything, but the fact is this is the first administration to get a rollback in those ten years," Kerry said. "Right now, Israel and the countries in the region and the world are safer."

DOCTOR WARNS — US Schools Could Face HEALTH CRISIS as Illegal Immigrants Enter Classrooms This Fall

Dr. Elaina George, an ear, nose, throat and chest specialist from Atlanta, told Charles Payne on FOX News today that the US could be facing a health crisis as the thousands of newly illegal children enter the classrooms this fall.

“There’s an example in Maryland, where parents got a letter from the school that there children had been exposed to an illegal child who had TB who was one of their classmates. So this fall it is potentially possible that these children entering the school systems could be carrying all sorts of things, diseases that are not on the radar.”

Armed Russian rebels fire warning shots at international inspectors at crash site as black box recorder said to be 'on its way' to Moscow


Russian rebels have stopped inspectors from investigating the MH17 crash site amid reports the black box record is ‘on its way to Moscow’.

Monitors from the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) were prevented from conducting their investigation by militiamen during their first trip to the scene.

The separatists reportedly fired warning shots as the group of 30 officials approached, forcing them to leave after just 75 minutes.

The stand-off fueled speculation that rebels are beginning a ‘cover-up’ by hiding all links to the Buk missile believed to have shot down the plane.



Wild Thing's comment..........

Typical of Muslims.

I don’t see how it matters who gets the black boxes. It will indicate the plane was suddenly shot down. We know that. If they can identify exact weapon used (may already know that) and a way to tie it to a specific group then that would be useful. I might be wrong about this, but I guess I don't understand with this kind of thing.

Protests Held Across North Texas Against Housing Illegal Aliens



Protests Held Across North Texas Against Housing Illegal Aliens

North Texans unhappy about the border crisis are letting their voices be heard at protests Friday and Saturday.

Dozens of people gathered in downtown Dallas to protest Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins’ work to bring 2,000 undocumented immigrant children to the county for care, while protesters in Fort Worth took to the street in front of several government agencies on West 7th Street.

Those protests were among 10 planned in North Texas and hundreds being held across the country, as part of a nationwide response to the undocumented immigration surge and what opponents call immigration reform amnesty.

At the Dallas protest, people who support Judge Jenkins’ efforts came out to the same block to counter-protest. Supporters of the plan to take in the immigrant children said it’s our human responsibility to care for the children.

Jenkins released a statement in response to the demonstration.

“I am focused on working with our community, faith leaders and federal partners on helping traumatized children in crisis move from detention on the border to compassionate care here,” he said. “Leaders can empower grace and mercy or incite fear and anger, but it’s the community that responds. Dallas County residents have overwhelmingly chosen compassion.”

The protests — launched by Make Them Listen, Americans for Legal Immigration PAC and Overpasses for America — will continue Saturday.

FRIDAY
Dallas: 411 Elm St., 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Fort Worth: 501 W. 7th St., 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Arlington: Overpass at Davis Street Bridge at I-30, 4 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Corinth: Corner of I-35E and Swisher Road, 7 a.m. to noon
Waxahachie: Cantrell Overpass at I-35, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Rockwall: Horizon Road and Highway 30 Overpass, 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m.


SATURDAY
Fort Worth: Overpass at 2850 Heritage Trace Parkway at I-35 West, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Allen: Highway 75 at Exchange Overpass, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Rockwall: Horizon Road and Highway 30 Overpass, 8:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m.
Waxahachie: Cantrell Overpass at I-35, 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Obama’s lack of concern is especially evident now that it has been revealed that he attended two fundraisers in New York last night, despite the fact that there were reportedly 23 Americans on the Malaysian Airlines flight that was shot down,

This President doesn’t care though, and is perfectly content to party, fund raise, and campaign while Americans struggle, suffer, and die.

Military Times Poll: Majority Want Bergdahl to Be Court-Martialed


Military Times Poll: Majority Want Bergdahl to Be Court-Martialed


A new online poll shows a large majority think released Taliban prisoner Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl — freed in a controversial swap in a controversial swap for five terror group leaders detained at Guantanamo — should be court-martialed.


The Military Times' poll this week asked readers what the military should do with Bergdahl now that he has finished his Amy-led reintegration process. Of the more than 4,400 people who responded, 60 percent selected the "court-martial him" option.

About 9 percent said the Army ought to "separate him immediately with a lesser discharge," some 8 percent said the Army should "separate him immediately with an honorable discharge," about 7 percent said "let him finish his current enlistment, then honorably discharge him;" and 15 percent were unsure of what the Army should do.

The Military Times said the poll was "unofficial" and offered no margin of error figures.

One reader thought the whole survey was premature.

"What an awful poll," the person wrote the newspaper. "How about we let the Army finish the investigation?"

The Army is looking into how Bergdahl, who disappeared from his outpost in Afghanistan in 2009, was captured by the Taliban. Since his release May 31, the soldier's former roommate, former Specialist Cody Full, has charged Bergdahl's inexplicable disappearance allegedly led to the deaths of troops who searched for him.

Bergdahl's lawyer, Eugene Fidell, who also represented Army Capt. James Yee, a Muslim Army chaplain at Guantanamo Bay cleared a decade ago of allegations he was part of a spy ring at the detention facility, told NBC's "Today" show Thursday Bergdahl is back on active duty in a desk job at a Texas base and "ready for the next chapter" of his life.



Wild Thing's comment............

It is insane to let him just go back to active duty as though nothing happened. IMO he is a danger to the rest of those who are serving our country, even if he is sitting at a desk.

Obama White House: We’re Not Going to Tell Where We’re Going to House Illegal Immigrants


Obama White House: We’re Not Going to Tell Where We’re Going to House Illegal Immigrants

The White House won’t reveal where it is housing thousands of Central American juvenile migrants because their privacy rights trump Americans’ right to know what‘s happening in their neighborhoods, press secretary Josh Earnest declared July 16.

The public does have a right to know what’s happening… [but] at the same time, there are privacy rights that are included in the law that this administration is committed to enforcing and following,” Earnest told Ed Henry, Fox News’ White House correspondent.

“We are not surprised in the least to see the Obama administration imitate the smugglers,” William Gheen, founder of Americans for Legal Immigration PAC, told The Daily Caller. “This is how smuggling operations work, this is what the smuggler-in-chief wants — secret planes and secret buses full of illegal immigrants.”

GOP governors and legislators are also highlighting the administration’s secrecy. “They don’t want the public to know what is really going on,” Nebraska Republican Rep. Lee Terry told Fox News.

According to Obama the “privacy rights” of illegal immigrants trumps our right to know what the government is doing.

Poll: Majority of Latinos Disapprove Of How Obama Is Handling Border Crisis


A new Washington Post-ABC News poll finds widespread public disapproval of the way President Obama and Republicans in Congress are handling the influx of unaccompanied foreign children at the southern border as the two sides engage in a fierce debate over how to stem the crisis.

Nearly 6 out of 10 Americans are not happy with Obama’s performance in dealing with the tens of thousands of minors who have arrived from Central America in recent months, overwhelming Border Patrol stations. All told, 58 percent disapprove of his management on the issue, including 54 percent of Latinos.

The findings represent a political blow for a president who called immigration reform a top second-term priority when he was reelected two years ago with 71 percent support from Latino voters.

Charles Krauthammer: Harry Reid ‘Detached From Reality,’ Wonders If He’s On His Medication



Conservative commentator Charles Krauthammer isn’t so sure Democratic Sen. Harry Reid is on his medication.

Krauthammer speculated on Reid’s mental health on “Special Report with Bret Baier” Tuesday night.

The panel, including Baier and Fox News contributor Mara Liasson, was discussing the influx of illegal immigrants — mostly women and children — flooding over the southern border.

Liasson explained that President Obama has always said he “wanted the flexibility to treat kids from Central America the same as Mexico” but never explicitly asked Congress to change the Bush-era 2008 sex trafficking law.

“He wanted Congress to go first,” she said. “People in the base of the Democratic party don’t want this law changed, don’t want these kids sent home faster.”

Liasson brought up the large amount of Hondurans — 15 percent — who are in the U.S. illegally who can no longer cross the border into Mexico because border security is tighter.

“The number of Hondurans who are here, mostly illegally, who can’t go back and forth anymore, because the border actually is a little tighter, that’s also a magnet for these kids.”

That’s when Krauthammer pounced.

“When you get Harry Reid saying the border is secure.”

“Definitively,” Baier cut in.

“You’ve got to wonder, you know, whether he’s really on his medication or not.”

Krauthammer didn’t stop there.

“I mean that’s so detached from reality,” he declared. “How many [children] do we have now? 60,000 at least? And we’re completely helpless. And it’s the helplessness that I think is driving the president and the Democrats to accept” changing the law.

Sen. Jeff Sessions Warns All of Congress: Obama's New Immigration Strategy 'Threatens Foundation of Our Constitutional Republic'


Sen. Jeff Sessions Warns All of Congress: Obama's New Immigration Strategy 'Threatens Foundation of Our Constitutional Republic'


Senate Budget Committee ranking member Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) has warned all of his colleagues in Congress that President Barack Obama’s new immigration strategy—his plans to legalize millions of illegal alien adults through executive power—could destroy America as we know it.

“I write to inform you of a development that threatens the foundation of our constitutional Republic,” Sessions, Congress’s top immigration hawk, wrote in a letter that was hand-delivered to all 535 members of Congress on Monday and provided exclusively to Breitbart News.

Sessions cites a recent report from the National Journal, in which reporter Major Garrett detailed how, despite the ongoing crisis at the border, Obama plans to legalize anywhere from five to six million illegal alien adults in much the same way he did for illegal alien minors through the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) in summer 2012.

“Obama made it clear he would press his executive powers to the limit,” Garrett wrote on July 3, as cited by Sessions. “He gave quiet credence to recommendations from La Raza and other immigration groups that between 5 million to 6 million adult illegal immigrants could be spared deportation under a similar form of deferred adjudication he ordered for the so-called Dreamers in June 2012.”

Sessions cites another paragraph from that National Journal piece as well, in which Garrett reported that President Obama has “now ordered the Homeland Security and Justice departments to find executive authorities that could enlarge that non-prosecutorial umbrella by a factor of 10.”

“Senior officials also tell me Obama wants to see what he can do with executive power to provide temporary legal status to undocumented adults,” Garrett wrote. “And he will shift Immigration Control and Enforcement resources from the interior to the border to reduce deportations of those already here and to beef up defenses along the border.”

Sessions, whose office hand-delivered the letter to every member of Congress Monday, wrote that this development from the Obama administration is “breathtaking.” The letter continued:


The action the President is reportedly contemplating would be a nullification of the Immigration and National Act by the Executive Branch of government. Indeed, it would be an executive nullification of our borders as an enforceable national boundary. By declaring whole classes of illegal immigrants beyond the reach of the law, it would remove the moral authority needed to enforce any immigration law, creating the very open-borders policy explicitly rejected by Congress and the people. And it would guarantee that the current illegal immigration disaster would only further worsen and destabilize.


Sessions’ letter to colleagues comes as some in both Republican and Democratic circles consider various plans they say would fix the problem of the border crisis. Sens. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), John McCain (R-AZ), and Chuck Schumer (D-NY) are reportedly working together to develop a broad comprehensive immigration legislative strategy similar to their “Gang of Eight” bill last year.

House GOP leadership is mulling a plan that would appropriate billions of dollars to the administration for use because of the crisis, packaged together with a version of the border bill offered by House Homeland Security Committee chairman Rep. Michael McCaul (R-TX). All those plans come as President Obama has asked Congress for $3.7 billion in new funding for use in dealing with the illegal aliens here. House Judiciary Committee chairman Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) suggested in an op-ed at Breitbart News the president doesn’t need any more money.

But Sessions argues that all of this bickering in Washington is a facade that doesn’t address the real problem. To really fix the issue, he argues, politicians need to be willing to enforce immigration laws in America and stop dealing with special interests who want the border to remain unsecured and seek continually high levels of immigration, legal or illegal, given how it benefits them in the form of cheap labor.

“As you know, over the last five and a half years, the President has routinely bypassed Congress in order to suspend enforcement of our immigration laws,” Sessions wrote. “The most dramatic of these lawless directives was the President’s 2012 Deferred Action Program for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), in which the president implemented by executive fiat legislation that Congress has three times rejected.”

Sessions wrote that the president’s DACA program “has led to catastrophic results,” because it was “declaring to the entire world that America will not enforce its immigration laws against those who enter the country as minors” and that the U.S. will “freely grant them access to work permits and taxpayer resources.” Sessions wrote that Obama’s DACA policy and other policies “unleashed a flood of new illegal immigration into the country” and that this is “the disaster that he created.” As such, Sessions argues that politicians should not just pass new legislation or throw money at the problem; they should work to reverse the president’s executive overreaches.

Sessions told his colleagues that “there is a clear path forward” from this problem in order to “prevent the continued dissolution of America’s borders.”

Eric Holder Says DOJ Will Fight Any State Ban On Gay Marriage


Holder Says DOJ Will Fight Any State Ban On Gay Marriage

The Justice Department will file a brief arguing the Supreme Court should prevent states from banning same-sex marriage, Attorney General Eric Holder said Sunday.

Holder said in an interview with ABC News that if the high court agrees to hear any of the legal challenges to state bans on gay marriage, the Obama administration will argue such laws are unconstitutional. Last week, officials in Utah said they would ask the Supreme Court to review a lower court ruling enabling gay marriage in the state.

The attorney general said such an action would be ”consistent with the actions that we have taken over the past couple of years.”

Under Holder, the Justice Department refused to defend the Defense of Marriage Act, which prohibits federal spousal benefits for same-sex couples. The Supreme Court last year gutted a key provision of that law, holding that the federal government should not define marriage exclusively as heterosexual unions.

Holder said that decision “vindicated” the administration’s strategy not to defend the law. He also said he was confident that the Supreme Court would agree that bans on gay marriage were unconstitutional.


Wild Thing's comment..........

So the US Department of Justice has nothing better to do than spend all of their time pimping sexual deviancy.

Obama and Eric Holder is going against a majority of people here in the United States.

Israel Attacked On Four Fronts On Same Day For First Time Ever: Sinai, Lebanon, Syria, Gaza



Israel Attacked On Four Fronts On Same Day For First Time Ever: Sinai, Lebanon, Syria, Gaza


Lebanon:

Also Monday, rockets were fired at Israel from southern Lebanon, reported Reuters, drawing retaliatory artillery fire from Israeli forces, Lebanese security officials and the Israeli army said, in the third such rocket attack from Lebanon since Friday.

An Israeli police spokeswoman said there was no immediate word of damage or casualties from the rocket fire. There was no immediate claim of responsibility.

Syria:

A rocket fired from Syria hit an open area on the Israeli side of the Golan Heights on Monday afternoon, the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) Spokesperson Unit confirmed in a statement.

The statement said according to initial reports, the launching was “deliberate.” It is still not clear who is responsible for the attack, the Walla news website reported.


Gaza:

A Hamas drone capable of carrying weapons was shot down Monday with a Patriot missile along the southern Israeli coast.

“It was shot to smithereens,” Lt. Col. Peter Lerner, a spokesman for the Israeli Army, told reporters Monday.

Israeli officials said it was the first time Hamas militants had launched a drone since fighting escalated last week.

Israel reported that its so-called Iron Dome defense system intercepted several rockets fired from Gaza, including one Monday evening over Tel Aviv.

Sinai:

4 lightly injured in recent rocket attack on Eilat.

Iran Celebrates Hamas Using Their Rockets To Attack Israeli Civilians


Iran Celebrates Hamas Using Their Rockets To Attack Israeli Civilians


Iranian military leaders on Monday celebrated Hamas’ use of advanced long-range rockets that were supplied to the terror group by the Iranian regime.

Iran’s role in arming Hamas militants with more sophisticated artillery capable of reaching deep into Israel has fueled concerns among lawmakers that U.S. negotiators are not doing enough to address Iran’s support for terror during ongoing nuclear discussions.

Israeli and United Nations officials have confirmed that Hamas is firing rockets on civilians provided to it by Iran.

A Senior Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) general praised Hamas’ rocket attacks on Monday and warned that between Hamas and other Iranian-backed terror groups, “all Zionists are within the range of the resistance’s missiles.”

“The defense capacity and capabilities of the Islamic resistance and Hamas forces has left no safe place for the Zionists in the occupied territories,” General Ramezan Sharif, head of the IRGC’s public relations department, said in public remarks Monday.

Jon Voight was on FOX News Saturday night to talk about Obama, Iraq, and Dinesh D’Souza:

“I’m here because of my heavy heart that a great man, Dinesh D’Souza, a patriotic man – more patriotic than anyone that I can think of at this moment, present company excepted – is being aggressively, negatively targeted in many ways, and the latest targeting is the boycotting of the great important book America: Imagine A World Without Her, and his film is based on this book.

Lowe's employees come to the rescue of disabled vet with broken wheelchair




Lowe’s Employees Come To The Rescue Of Disabled Vet With Broken Wheelchair

Staten Island.


In 1971, I stepped on a land mine in Vietnam and lost both legs above the knee.

For the past two years, I have been waiting to receive a new wheelchair from the Veterans Administration. In addition, I have been told that I am not entitled to a spare wheelchair.

On the evening of July 7, my wheelchair fell apart again, while shopping at Lowe’s Home Improvement Center in on Forest Avenue in Mariners Harbor.

Three employees, David, Marcus and Souleyman jumped to my assistance immediately. They placed me in another chair while they went to work.

They took the wheelchair apart and replaced the broken parts and told me, “We’re going to make this chair like new.”

I left 45 minutes after closing hours in my wheelchair that was like new.

I kept thanking them and all they could say was, “It was our honor.”

The actions of these three employees at Lowe’s showed me there are some who still believe in stepping to the plate.

They didn’t ask any questions, didn’t feel the need to fill out any forms or make phone calls. Someone needed help and they felt privileged to be given the opportunity.

Border Patrol Agent Comes Down With Bacterial Pneumonia, Will Have Lifelong Complications



Border Patrol Agent Comes Down With Bacterial Pneumonia, Will Have Lifelong Complications


A Border Patrol agent from the Laredo, Texas, Sector has been hospitalized for seven days with bacterial pneumonia, which the agent contracted while processing illegal immigrants, officials from National Border Patrol Council 2455 tell National Review Online.

Agent Jarrad Seely, vice president of NBPC 2455, says the agent is expected to have chronic asthmatic symptoms for life, according to information relayed by the agent. The illness has so swollen the agent’s throat that it’s difficult for the agent to speak, Seely says.

“It’s a very traumatic experience for [the agent] and [the agent’s] family,” he says. “[The agent’s] got small children.” He says that it’s too soon to tell if the agent will be able to make a full recovery and return to work, and says the agent was healthy prior to processing the immigrants.

“Our agents have been getting sick more often than before with flus and congestion and a whole bunch of respiratory illnesses,” says Hector Garza, the secretary and treasurer of NBPC 2455. “The processing room was severely overcrowded and that just made [it] the perfect breeding ground for these diseases.” Garza says he and other Border Patrol officials have had to communicate indirectly with the agent, via the family, because of the agent’s inability to speak.

Seely says the Laredo Sector has recently had illegal immigrants arrive with active cases of tuberculosis, scabies, lice and chicken pox.




Wild Thing's comment............

This kind of thing is going to happen a lot and not only to the Border Patrol but to many others that come in contact with the illegals.

And letting people with diseases we have gotten rid of for the most part - such as deadly tuberculosis, is just plain STUPID.

Either we have laws or we do not.

Chicago Inner City Blacks GO OFF on Obama Over Illegal Immigration “Worst President Ever”





Chicago Inner City Blacks GO OFF on Obama Over Illegal Immigration “Worst President Ever”

Rebel Pundit interviewed the community this week about Barack Obama’s open border policies and his spending on the illegal immigrant community. Let’s just say – they are NOT HAPPY.

One resident even says, “Barack Obama will go down as the worst president ever.”

The Chicago resident says:

“With the president setting aside all these funds for immigrants and forsaken African-American community and African-American families, I think that’s a disgrace. And Barack is from the heart of 55th in the City of Chicago… He will probably go down as the worst president ever elected. Bill Clinton was the African-American president.“


Chicago woman goes off on Barack Obama.

“Mr. President, we’re asking for you. You’re spending billions of dollars in Texas but we got a problem here in Chicago. We will not stand by this here and keep letting this senseless killing and shooting happening in our community.”

Newborns Receive Contraception ID Cards in the Mail Under Obamacare Mandate/Law (Obama's America)



Newborns Receive Contraception ID Cards in the Mail Under Obamacare Mandate/Law


FOX News

I got an email the other day from one of our listeners in Lubbock, Texas. He’s pretty fired up because his health care provider sent his daughter a contraceptive ID card. According to the insurance company, the card happens to be an Obamacare mandate.

Now it’s bad enough they would send something like this to a child without parental consent — but what really makes this story salacious — is that my reader’s daughter is only three months old.

Apparently, the insurance company wants to make sure the three month old has options after a sordid affair at daycare.

“Attached is your Contraceptive Coverage Plan ID Card,” the insurance company’s letter read. “The new federal preventive health services law requires that group health plans provide women contraceptive services to female members of all ages without imposing any cost-sharing and at no cost to you.”

At first my reader just laughed it off – thinking it was a mistake – but then he found out it was the law.

Sure enough – a letter from the insurance company stipulates that every female – no matter her age receives a contraceptive cover card and that means even three month old babies.

“It’s frustrating and sickening,” my reader told me. “It bothers me that this company takes it upon themselves to send this out to people’s young children without even contacting us.”

That’s right – moms and dads are not allowed to opt out of the contraceptive ID card. My reader said he is disgusted.

“I don’t even want to think about my little girl having a boyfriend and especially not having sex,” he told me. “I’d like to enjoy her innocence. But now, it’s forced upon her mother and I thanks to Obamacare.”

Welcome to President Obama’s fundamentally transformed America, folks.

‘I,’ ‘Me,’ ‘My’—Obama Uses First Person Singular 199 Times in Speech Vowing Unilateral Action





‘I,’ ‘Me,’ ‘My’—Obama Uses First Person Singular 199 Times in Speech Vowing Unilateral Action


CNSNews


Not counting instances when he quoted a letter from a citizen or cited dialogue from a movie, President Barack Obama used the first person singular--including the pronouns "I" and "me" and the adjective "my"--199 times in a speech he delivered Thursday vowing to use unilateral executive action to achieve his policy goals that Congress would not enact through the normal, constitutional legislative process.

“It is lonely, me just doing stuff,” Obama said at the speech in Austin, Texas, according to the official transcript and video posted on the White House website.

“I’m just telling the truth now,” Obama told the crowd. “I don't have to run for office again, so I can just let her rip. And I want to assure you, I’m really not that partisan of a guy.”

To prove this, Obama went on to say Abraham Lincoln was his favorite president, and then gave a list of what he called “great Republican presidents”—which included Richard Nixon.

“My favorite president is the first Republican president, a guy named Abraham Lincoln,” Obama said. “You look at our history, and we had great Republican presidents who--like Teddy Roosevelt started the National Park System, and Dwight Eisenhower built the Interstate Highway System, and Richard Nixon started the EPA.”

The White House presented Obama’s speech, which the president delivered at Austin’s Paramount Theatre, as “Remarks by the President on the Economy.” The remarks, the White House reports, ran 40 minutes, and the full transcript (including annotations for “laughter” and “applause”) is more than 5,500 words.

By contrast, President Abraham Lincoln’s Gettyburg Address was only 272 words--and did not include any form of the first person singular.

In President Obama’s speech, he used a first person singular, on average, every 12 seconds. At that rate, had Obama spoken for just 15 more minutes, he would have used the first person singular more than 272 times in one speech—exceeding all the words in the Gettysburg Address.

In one 68-word passage--in which he vowed to act unilaterally if Congress did not enact legislation he liked--Obama used the first person singular five more times than the zero times Lincoln used it in his 272 words at Gettysburg.

“I can't stand by with partisan gridlock that's the result of cynical political games that threaten the hard work of millions of Americans,” said Obama. “I’m not just going to stand by and say, okay, that's--I guess that's the way it is. Whenever and wherever I have the power, the legal authority to help families like yours, even if Congress is not doing anything, I will take that opportunity.”

Netanyahu: "Israel Has Attacked More Than 1,000 Targets, There is Still More To Go"..."No International Pressure Will Stop Us From Acting With Full Force"



NETANYAHU: "We have so far attacked more than 1,000 targets. Hamas, Islamic Jihad and other groups. There is still more to go." He warned that he is weighing all options including a possible ground war, adding that the opinions of allies won't deter Israel. "No international pressure will stop us from acting with full force."

PM Netanyahu is basically saying that Israel will not be deterred by anybody, they will strike Hamas with full force. These comments are no doubt directed toward the Obama administration.

Obama and his disdain for our military: troops get pink slips in combat




Obama and his disdain for our military: troops get pink slips in combat

by Lieutenant Colonel Allen West


There is stupid and then there is simply absurd. The Obama administration is sending pink slips to troops while they’re serving in a war zone.

I remember being a young captain returning home after Operation Desert Shield/Storm and the decision was made to conduct a RIF (Reduction in Force). Officers were given a choice to voluntarily separate, which many did, or be involuntarily separated, based on performance reviews. But this decision came after the combat operation had ceased.

Leave it to the Obama administration to do something so amazingly dumb it takes your breath away.

According to the New York Post, “In a stunning display of callousness, the Defense Department has announced that thousands of soldiers — many serving as commanding officers in Afghanistan — will be notified in the coming weeks that their service to the country is no longer needed. Last week, more than 1,100 Army captains — the men and women who know best how to fight this enemy because they have experienced multiple deployments — were told they’ll be retired from the Army.”

Let’s just review what’s going in the world right now, shall we?

* Islamic State (IS -the terror artists formerly known as ISIS) is creating a caliphate in the heart of the Middle East.

*Israel is locked in combat with Hamas.

* Iran is marching towards regional hegemony and nuclear capability.

* Russia is seeking to expand its domain.

*China is threatening our allies in the Pacific Rim.


This is the time the Obama administration has decided to send pink slips to our combat warriors while they are serving in a combat zone? Simply brilliant! But then again, deserters (i.e. Bowe Bergdahl) are heroic and serve with distinction according to National Security Advisor and Obama lapdog Susan Rice — so who needs these men and women of honor, integrity and character who faithfully stand guard upon freedom’s rampart?

I’m also perplexed why we don’t want to retain these hard-charging combat veterans, leaders, commanders — but we need $3.7 billion to promote a PR campaign in central America and accommodate tens of thousands of illegal immigrants — oops, I mean refugees — into America.

So once again I must ask, whose side is Obama on?

The Post says, “the overall news is not unexpected. The Army has ended its major operations in Iraq and is winding down in Afghanistan. Budget cuts are projected to shrink the Army from its current 520,000 troops to 440,000, the smallest size since before World War II. What is astonishing is that the Defense Department thought it would be appropriate to notify deployed soldiers — men and women risking their lives daily in combat zones — that they’ll be laid off after their current deployment.”

Does this mean these men and women can be redeployed from the combat zone in order to get on with their lives? We can’t fire a union-supported Veterans Administration supervisor who lied and created a “death list” for our nation’s heroes — but the Obama administration can fire our nation’s heroes while they serve in harm’s way? Yeah, some Commander-in-Chief we have, huh America?

As one Army wife posted on MilitaryFamily.org, “On some level I knew the drawdowns were inevitable, but I guess I never expected to be simultaneously worried about a deployment to Afghanistan and a pink slip because my husband’s service is no longer needed.”

The Post reports that a senior Defense Department official warned: “If the force is smaller, there’s less margin for error. Let’s face it — things are pretty uncertain out there.” Commenting on the extraordinarily large number of captains being retired, Army Vice Chief of Staff Gen. John Campbell said: “In other times, they’d probably continue to stay in the Army. But these are not normal times.”

No sir, these are not normal times — these are perilous times and the last thing we should be doing is reducing our force capability to pre-World War II levels. And shame on our uniformed leaders for sitting on their hands and not standing up to defend our young men and women in uniform.

The Obama administration shows its true colors and how it feels about our men and women in uniform nearly every day. But just think about this simple juxtaposition: a Rose Garden ceremony for the parents of Army PFC Bowe Bergdahl, and the abject dismissal of concern in the case of Marine SGT Andrew Tahmooressi locked in a Mexican jail.

Former U.S. Army Capt. Jonathan Hendershott (West Point, 2007), who wrote the New York Post piece, served in Iraq with the 101st Airborne Division and as a company commander in Ft. Hood, Texas. He concludes by saying, “None of our soldiers has ever asked for our gratitude — they never really expected it. But they did expect to be able to finish the job they trained to do. Sending pink slips to commanders still serving in a combat zone is wrong. They deserve so much better than this.”

The current U.S. Army motto is “Army Strong” – but not if the Obama administration has anything to do with it.

Good!!!! House Wouldn’t Approve Obama’s Request For $3.7 Billion For Illegal Aliens



House Wouldn’t Approve Obama’s Request For $3.7 Billion For Illegal Aliens


Obama’s $3.7 billion emergency request for the border crisis is too big and the House won’t approve it, the chairman of the House committee that controls spending said Friday.

“It’s too much money. We don’t need it,” Appropriations Committee Chairman Hal Rogers, (R-Ky.), told reporters.

“There are pieces of it that need to be dealt with immediately and that’s what we’re working on,” Rogers said, but when asked whether the House would approve the spending package as-is, he said “no.”

Rogers’ comments to reporters underscore the challenges ahead as Obama pushes Congress to approve the money to deal with tens of thousands of unaccompanied minors showing up at the U.S. border with Mexico. Many are fleeing gang violence in Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala, and are drawn by rumors that once here they could stay.

U.S. Muslims Most Approving of Obama, Mormons Least





U.S. Muslims Most Approving of Obama, Mormons Least

Gallup politics

Barack Obama’s approval rating is higher among Muslims than any other religious group, a new poll says.

According to a Gallup poll released Friday that tracked responses for the first six months of 2014, 72 percent of Muslims said they approve of the president, compared with just 20 percent who disapprove.

Mormons were the least approving religious group, with 18 percent of Mormons approving and 78 percent disapproving of the president. Mormons in the past have ranked as the most conservative major religious group in the U.S.

The survey underscores a religious divide when it comes to presidential approval — Obama is more popular among non-Christians and less popular among Christians.

Catholics, on the other hand, have only a 44 percent approval rating of Obama, compared with 51 percent disapproval. Protestants and other Christians are more critical, with 37 percent approving and 58 percent disapproving.

Connecticut Obamacare Glitch Drops Thousands Of People From Coverage



Connecticut Obamacare Glitch Drops Thousands Of People From Coverage


Thousands of Connecticut Obamacare customers are facing coverage uncertainty after computer glitches estimated incorrect subsidies or randomly dropped them from their health plans without warning — even though they’d paid premiums.

About 3,900 customers of Access Health CT, the state-run Obamacare exchange that has been one of the more successful health care marketplaces thus far, were incorrectly told they qualified for Medicaid due to a computer glitch, The Hartford Courant reports. Other customers received bills from their insurance companies that displayed a different amount than they’d agreed to on the exchange website – and at least 903 customers were unceremoniously kicked off their coverage without warning.

The problems were caused by faulty 834 insurer forms, which caused significant problems at the federal exchange website HealthCare.gov as well. The forms detail the amount of premium tax credits customers qualify for. The “system error” in the 834 forms was discovered on July 1, CEO Kevin Counihan said after state Republicans inquired about customer complaints over dropped coverage.

Some of the customers received paperwork and made premium payments, but have somehow lost their coverage anyway, WTNH reports. Others were told to wait for further paperwork to fill out before their health plans could be activated, but never received the extra forms.

Second Federal Judge Orders IRS To Explain “Lost” Lerner Emails Under Oath


Second Federal Judge Orders IRS To Explain “Lost” Lerner Emails Under Oath

FOX News

A second federal judge has now ordered the IRS to explain under oath how the agency lost emails from former division director Lois Lerner, the woman at the heart of the Tea Party targeting scandal.

U.S. District Court Judge Reggie Walton told Obama administration lawyers on Friday he wants to see an affidavit explaining what happened with Lerner’s hard drive. The IRS claims her computer suffered a crash in 2011 that wiped her email records at the time clean.

But at a hearing examining a lawsuit against the IRS by conservative group True the Vote, Walton said he wants to know what happened to Lerner’s hard drive, which allegedly was recycled. He asked for an affidavit from those involved in handling the crashed drive.

The order is another boost for those questioning the agency’s claims that many Lerner emails from that time period are not recoverable.

A day earlier, in a separate case brought by conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch, U.S. District Judge Emmet G. Sullivan gave the tax agency 30 days to file a declaration by an “appropriate official” to address the computer issues involving Lerner.


Wild Thing's comment...........

I don't think Obama cares how many judges demand things of him. And I think Lerner is the same way. There is such a tremendous arrogance with these people.
