ICE readies 2,400 beds for new spring surge of illegal immigrants through Texas

 So Texas reverts to being a Democrat state soon.

Washington Examiner

... "In advance of the president’s new pro-immigrant announcement set for Thursday night, ICE is readying its strategy for next year when over 100,000 illegals are expected to flood over the U.S.-Mexico border." ...

Culturist Suicide

Political Cartoons by Lisa Benson

American Thinker   "With Obama’s promised amnesty for illegal people, America has committed culturist suicide.  Culturism is the belief that a traditional majority culture has the right and duty to protect, promote, and promulgate itself.  This mission is now lost beyond hope.  And this is fatal to America, because cultural diversity is real and important.

"Obama claims that his amnesty will impact only 5 million people.  How will they check that?  Who will check that?  Believe me, fraud will be rampant and we do not have the resources or will to check it.  And, this news will – as did Obama’s earlier promise not to deport children – create an enormous spike in illegals.  We no longer have a southern border.
Culturism believes in assimilation.  When minorities are pressured to assimilate, over time, they will.  But this means schools must push majority culture pride.  When large swaths of the nation are Latino, when multiculturalists push Spanish and Latino pride, we will assimilate to them, not the reverse; the majority culture will be replaced.

Bombshell: Email Proves that White House, DOJ Targeted Reporter Sharyl Attkisson

PJ Media  ... "One of the documents provides smoking gun proof that the Obama White House and the Eric Holder Justice Department colluded to get CBS News to block reporter Sharyl Attkisson. Attkisson was one of the few mainstream media reporters who paid any attention to the deadly gun-running scandal.
"In an email dated October 4, 2011, Attorney General Holder’s top press aide, Tracy Schmaler, called Attkisson “out of control.” Schmaler told White House Deputy Press Secretary Eric Schultz that he intended to call CBS news anchor Bob Schieffer to get the network to stop Attkisson." ...

If this is Republican victory, I'd hate to see what defeat looks like

Liberals Still Don’t Realize They Lost   "Democrats lost control of the Senate and the House (again) earlier this month, but you’d never know it from the way they’re acting right now.
"Progressives are high-fiving each other over a new Benghazi report which still doesn’t reveal the deceptions Obama and Hillary used by blaming the attack on a YouTube video.

"They’re also really excited about Obama’s bold new power grab on immigration this week.

"They’re dreaming. They’re in denial.

"Ed Morrissey at The Week…

Congress Seems Happy to Have Its Powers Usurped    ..."In the Senate, meanwhile, Elizabeth Warren expressed her approval, as did power-players Harry Reid, Dick Durbin, Chuck Schumer, Patty Murray, Bob Menendez, and Michael Bennet. With a few virtuous exceptions, those that did not champion the action elected at best to remain silent." ...
" ...the root cause of the Republican party’s present dilemma is that the body that it leads has largely elected to abdicate its constitutional role — not, as President Obama likes to imply, because it has failed to do what the White House wishes it to do, but because it is proving so shamefully unwilling to defend its authority." ... 

McCain: Obama repeating Vietnam mistakes

'Why he hasn't learned from Iraq ... confounds me.'
Navy Lt. Cdr. John McCain
... "McCain ridiculed “the so-called air war against ISIS.”

“ 'We warned ISIS a week ahead of time that we’re going to strike. I’m told, I’ll find out when I get back to Washington, that the process of approval of a target strike is very similar to that of the Vietnam war, where the targets were decided in the White House in the situation room. I think in some ways we are seeing a replay of that war.”
"How did the former POW rate Obama as a commander in chief?

“ 'He’s got the same kind of team around him that Lyndon Johnson had around him. There’s just no doubt about it. This latest thing, trying to work with the Iranians against ISIS – the same people that are arming (Syrian President) Bashar al-Assad, the same people who brought in Hezbollah to change the equation on the battlefield. And providing Assad with the weapons and barrel bombs to slaughter the Free Syrian Army.”...

Obama And Holder Release Messages For Ferguson Mob And Law Enforcement

You law enforcement guys better behave!
Nice Deb  "Ahead of the grand jury decision in Ferguson, Missouri, both outgoing (finally!)Attorney General Eric Holder and Emperor Obama released messages warning law enforcement to behave themselves.

“ 'The Justice Department encourages law enforcement officials, in every jurisdiction, to work with the communities they serve to minimize needless confrontation,” Holder said.

“ 'Over the past few months, we’ve seen demonstrations and protests that have sought to bring attention to real and significant underlying issues involving police practices, implicit bias, and pervasive community distrust.  And in most cases, these demonstrations have been both meaningful and responsible, and have brought vital issues to the attention of the public at large,” the Holder said in a video.

"(That’s a fascinating take since the shooting sparked months of  violent protests, property destruction and looting in Ferguson, and law enforcement officials there have been bracing for more violence  after the decision is announced.)

“ 'I know, from first-hand experience, that demonstrations like these have the potential to spark a sustained and positive national dialogue, to provide momentum to a necessary conversation, and to bring about critical reform.”

"Full transcript, here.

"What does he mean by “implicit bias?” Stopping a suspect who fits the description of a person who just robbed a convenience store? Should the police just stop doing their jobs so as not to show “implicit bias”?

"And I’m sure I don’t have to tell you that this “national dialogue” Holder wants to inflict on the nation isn’t the pro-law and order dialogue you and I would prefer. The cringe-inducing term “critical reform” applies to law enforcement - not law breakers."

Schlafly: Obama's election strategy for Ferguson flops  “I think that Obama and his attorney general really fomented [unrest] in order to hopefully win the election on November 4,” Schlafly said. “They wanted to inflame people in order to get their voters out to vote. I think it was deliberately done, and they weren’t content to just let the process take its course.
“ 'I think it has backfired, and the Republicans won a tremendous victory despite everything,” she added." ...

BREAKING!! Ferguson Grand Jury Announcement To Be Held On Sunday!!


Wayne Dupree   "Multiple news sources say that a Grand Jury decision has been made and it will be announced Sunday at some point. Developing…

"The shooting death of Michael Brown occurred on August 9, 2014, in Ferguson, MO. a suburb of St. Louis. Brown, an 18-year-old black man, was fatally shot by Darren Wilson, 28, a white police officer. The disputed circumstances of the shooting resulted in protests and civil unrest and received a large amount of Nationwide, even worldwide attention.

"A Grand Jury is now deliberating on weather or not Wilson will be charged.

"CNN is reporting that Darren Wilson, the Ferguson, MO, police officer whose fatal shooting of a teenager, Michael Brown has set off months of tension, is in the final stages of negotiations to resign."

Some commentary on the global cooling/ global warming/ climate change scare.

Charles Krauthammer: The climate pact swindle
"... the radical unilateralism advocated by climate alarmists, would be not just economic suicide but economic suicide without purpose. It would do nothing to reduce atmospheric CO2 as long as China, India and the other developing nations more than make up for our cuts with their huge and increasing carbon emissions."
"China alone is firing up a new coal plant every eight to 10 days. We could close every coal mine in Kentucky and West Virginia and achieve absolutely nothing except devastating Appalachia and, in effect, shipping its economic lifeblood to China."...
... "The only way forward on greenhouse gases is global reduction by global agreement. A pact with China would be a good start.
"Unfortunately, the Obama-Xi agreement is nothing of the sort. It is a fraud of Gruberian (as in Jonathan) proportions. Its main plank commits China to begin cutting carbon emissions 16 years from now. On the other hand, the United States, having already cut more carbon emissions than any nation on earth since 2005, must now double its current rate of carbon cutting to meet a new, more restrictive goal by 2025. In return for which, China will keep increasing its carbon emissions year after year throughout that period — and for five years beyond.
Emphasis mine.

Alan Caruba: Obama's Cruel and Costly Climate Hoax
... "We are colder these days because the Earth has been in a cooling cycle for 19 years and that cycle is based entirely on the Sun which has been radiating less heat for the same period of time."
"A cruel and costly climate hoax is being perpetrated by President Obama and, in particular, by the Environmental Protection Agency. The new Congress must take whatever action it can to reverse and stop the harm that it represents; people’s jobs and lives depend on it."

Obama, The Guardian of the Constitution

Obama’s Imperial Transformation Is Now Complete; The president has become everything he ran against.

Joe Wilson was right
Charles C. W. Cooke ... "Noting in 2008 that he “taught constitutional law for ten years,” and in consequence took “the Constitution very seriously,” Obama determined that “the biggest problems that we’re facing right now have to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch and not go through Congress at all.” “That,” the candidate assured his audience, is “what I intend to reverse when I’m president of the United States of America.”
 ..."Indeed, so utterly determined has this president been to adopt the emperor’s mantle, the New York Times records, that he went so far as to change his lawyers when the first collection told him that he was breaking the law. Richard Nixon, call your office."
"Today, the transformation of Barack Obama from wide-eyed idealist to bitter imperator will finally be completed. Amid the glitz and the artifice of Las Vegas, the last vestiges of the one we were waiting for will be swept ignominiously away, leaving only power, cynicism, and partisanship in their stead. There was a time when our 44th president claimed to stand for transparency, modesty, moderation, tolerance, humility, reason, and calm. Today, just feet from Caesars Palace, he will don the robes of the emperor and spin minor discretion into gargantuan usurpation, all norms and touchstones be damned. However convincing are the promises of the ambitious, Lord Acton always has the last laugh."

The Petulant Obama: U.S. Taxpayers Must Pay For Illegals’ Children

Daily Caller
Political Cartoons by Gary Varvel
"Illegal immigrants will receive huge payments from American taxpayers under rules now being imposed by President Barack Obama’s unilateral amnesty.

"The illegals will get work-permits and Social Security cards, and will be required to pay taxes, according to Cecilia Munoz, the former immigration lobbyist who is now a top Obama aide.

"That means they’re part of the tax system, she said, when she was asked if the illegals would get annual payments under the Earned Income Tax Credit program.

“ 'They are subject to our tax law,” she said, carefully." ...
