When Illegals Don’t Think They’re Here Illegally, Chaos Ensues
PREFACE: This in not about the young children crossing the border. This is about adults and their thinking, not children. A very vocal and visible illegal immigrant, Jose Antonio Vargas, wrote about his visit to the border town of McAllen, Texas in Politico Magazine and the vigil he lead for the unaccompanied alien children: ….a crowd of about 30 people—mostly undocumented youth, a few citizen allies—started chanting something in | Read More »
WHERE’S BURWELL? Secretary of HHS Sylvia Burwell That Is.
You know, the new Secretary of HHS that breezed through her Senate confirmation 78-17 on June 5th. That was despite the unpopular Obamacare law and the botched rollout because many said she was smart, a proven manager, very capable and even trustworthy when she was the Office of Management and Budget Director for less than a year. So where is Sec. Burwell when Obamacare is a disaster still unfolding and we have | Read More »
$3.7 Billion For What? No Immigration Plan, No Border Enforcement, No Money. Period.
From WhiteHouse.gov, the White House just released its wish list for your tax dollars to support the illegal immigrants flooding our border. Price Tag: $3.8 Billion in Emergency Funding (no budget offsets required). Just the opening sentences of the press release tell you all you need to know (my commentary in parenthesis): While overall rates of apprehensions across our Southwest border remain at near historic lows, | Read More »
Obama’s New Offensive Immigration Play Seeks to Defend Gains
It’s impossible to please everyone all of time. For Obama, sometimes it’s even harder to please his base, which should be easy since typically they share the same agenda. But when it comes to immigration reform, there’s a lot of space between them, and his base is not happy. They have been clamoring for Obama to do something, halt deportations if nothing else, since the odds of getting a bill passed in | Read More »
Taunting is SO Unbecoming of the President of the United States
The Taunter-In-Chief has spoken on immigration….again. He will act if Congress won’t with his infamous pen and phone. Speaker Boehner told him last week he won’t bring up Senate Bill S. 744. Period. And so he goes to his teleprompter to taunt the Republicans into acting on a flawed bill. If I was a fly on the wall in that meeting, this is what I’d | Read More »
White House Planned and Prepared Way in Advance for Illegal Border Crossing Surge
Finally, an event the president can’t claim he was surprised about or heard about in the news! Yes, for the first time ever, his administration actually planned well in advance, for the massive swell of illegals coming across the border. Specifically they planned for 65,000 illegals, mostly children under the age of 17, to come across the Texas border. They planned for the surge by issuing an RFI on | Read More »
Was the Bush War Strategy Really About Toppling Saddam Hussein? Not in My View. What Should Happen Now.
We may never know if President Bush definitely knew if Saddam had WMD’s as none were found, but could that have been a façade for the real reason we invaded Iraq? It is possible any WMDs were slipped out to Libya or elsewhere before our troops arrived and other countries made the same claim, but I’m not sure it mattered in the long game. I’ll give him | Read More »
If Outsourcing is the WH’s Foreign Policy, Then at Least SHUT THE DANG DOOR!
Remember how the Left ranted and raged over American companies outsourcing jobs to other countries? So much so that the Democratically controlled House and Senate introduced bills in 2010, H.R.5622 and S. 3816 that claimed to reduce outsourcing and bring jobs back to the United States. Thankfully they both failed. So where is their outrage over the president outsourcing U.S. foreign policy to the likes of | Read More »
Obama’s Foreign Policy Doctrine: Watch, Monitor, Look, Wait, Whac-a-Mole and NO BOOTS ON THE GROUND
Some have described President Obama’s foreign policy as “lead from behind”. It’s now been replaced by left in the dust. Meaning all options are on the table which means he’ll contemplate on doing nothing. And it’s good to know there is no crisis in Iraq in case anyone was wondering. We know this because if there were a crisis, say terrorists were mere miles away from attacking the city of our embassy | Read More »
POW or PAWN? Checkmate Obama, Your Political Game is Over
It’s clear that the military knew exactly who Sgt. Bergdahl right after he left his post: he was a deserter. The president had to know this but chose to use this Sgt. as a pawn in his political game in order to release the 5 terrorists. As more and more troubling facts come out, there are two pressing questions: Why did the president make this deal? | Read More »
