NY Democrats seek citizen rights for illegal immigrants | New York Post

NY Democrats seek citizen rights for illegal immigrants | New York Post: Illegal aliens in New York could score billions in Medicaid and college tuition money — along with driver’s licenses, voting rights and even the ability to run for office — if Democrats win control of the state Senate in November, The Post has learned.

A little-known bill, dubbed “New York is Home,” would offer the most sweeping amnesty available anywhere in the country to nearly 3 million noncitizens living in the Empire State.

'Hillary Clinton's Fingerprints Are All Over Obamacare' | Truth Revolt

'Hillary Clinton's Fingerprints Are All Over Obamacare' | Truth Revolt: Democrat Senator Tom Harkin (D-IA) told the attendees of his annual Steak Fry, that Hillary Clinton's fingerprints are all over Obamacare.

“One of the things she always worked on was advancing this concept, this idea that health care should be a right and not a privilege in this country,” Harkin said. “So, Hillary was not there when the Affordable Care Act was signed into law, she was of course secretary of state, but I want you all to know that her fingerprints are all over that legislation. It would not have happened without her strenuous advocacy in that committee all those years.”

Speculation that Hillary is going to run for President is wide-spread, especially with her return to Iowa. Both Hillary and former President Bill were headliners at Harkin's big event.

Arab Nations on ISIS: Yes to Airstrikes, But No Sandals on the Ground | Truth Revolt

Arab Nations on ISIS: Yes to Airstrikes, But No Sandals on the Ground | Truth Revolt: Secretary of State John Kerry just completed a whirlwind trip across the Middle East to rally support for President Obama's war, sustained counter-terrorism operation, er... war against ISIS. The results of his diplomatic efforts, according to the New York Times, is less than heartening:

The Obama administration said Sunday that “several” Arab nations had offered to join in airstrikes against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, but any sustained military campaign does not appear imminent, and is likely to require an even more significant commitment from other nations and fighting forces in the region.

Yale's Muslim Students Association Lied In Its Attempt To Rally Against Hirsi Ali | Truth Revolt: ale's Muslim Student Association is under fire for forging signatures on their petition condemning women's rights activist Ayaan Hirsi Ali. According to the Yale Daily News, the MSA erroneously included organizations in its open letter challenging the William F. Buckley club's decision to hear Hirsi Ali speak about Islam:

In the days that have passed since the Muslim Students Association (MSA) sent a campus-wide email expressing concern over Ayaan Hirsi Ali’s planned appearance, some campus organizations listed as signatories have withdrawn their signatures, claiming that they never gave their clear support.

Darrien Hunt, 22, was shot by Saratoga Springs police Wednesday morning. The exact circumstances surrounding his death remain unclear; most accounts agree that Hunt, who was black, had some kind of three-foot sword strapped to his back.

Some witnesses have described Hunt's behavior as "distressed," while others have said he was "totally calm."

» Wanna be a cop in Kansas? Good luck if you're a homeschooler » Fresh Ink -- GOPUSA: Thanks to the Kansas State Commission on Police Officer Standards and Training, it's a lot more difficult for homeschool graduates to become a cop than other privately schooled or publicly schooled graduates. Instead of just accepting a high school diploma for eligibility — as it does for traditionally educated high school graduates — CPOST requires homeschoolers to jump through additional hoops.

This was a revelation to Home School Legal Defense Association senior counsel Scott Woodruff, who was recently apprised of a situation with a homeschool graduate and Marine Corps veteran who sought admission to the Topeka Police Academy.

Indonesia Police Chief’s Alleged Big Claim About Missing Malaysian Plane: I Know ‘What Really Happened’ | TheBlaze.com

Indonesia Police Chief’s Alleged Big Claim About Missing Malaysian Plane: I Know ‘What Really Happened’ | TheBlaze.com: While there’s been no recent news about the March disappearance of Malaysian Airlines Flight 370 and the 239 people on board, a top Indonesian police official says he knows what happened. But Malaysian officials and the Indonesian government have since denied his claims.

Kompas, the national newspaper in Indonesia, reported that Indonesia Police Chief General Sutarman — his first name missing from many news reports about him — said he spoke with Tun Mohammed Hanif Omar, who was inspector general of the Royal Malaysian Police for 20 years but retired in 1994. After speaking with Omar, Sutarman said he now knows what happened to the plane that disappeared without a trace when it went off radar on a flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing six months ago.

How Isis became the wealthiest terror group in history - Middle East - World - The Independent

How Isis became the wealthiest terror group in history - Middle East - World - The Independent: Islamic State (Isis) militants are taking in more than $3m (£1.8m) a day through oil smuggling, extortion, theft and human trafficking, say intelligence officials and experts.

Aid workers, researchers and intelligence agents say that as the group has taken over sections of Iraq and Syria it now controls as many as 11 oil fields in both countries. It is using generations-old smuggling networks to bring in the trade from oil and other goods. It is also making money from extorting cash from people in the areas they have seized, kidnapping for ransom and from human trafficking.

"After a sharp drop from last year, trust in the executive branch is the lowest it has been during President Barack Obama's tenure, at 43%," reports Gallup. "The historical low of 40% was measured in April 1974, months before Richard Nixon resigned amid the Watergate scandal."

Breitbart Texas exclusively obtained the leaked incident report from federal agents on the condition their identities remain private.

Everyone Must Be Included…Almost | The Common Constitutionalist

Everyone Must Be Included…Almost | The Common Constitutionalist: In his rather mundane speech the other night, Barack Obama said among the other nonsense he spouted, that the new Iraqi government must be more inclusive. A stable Iraqi government must be one that represents the countries plethora of religious and ethnic minorities – that all must be represented.

He said: “Once an inclusive government is in place, I’m confident it will be easier to mobilize all Iraqis against ISIL. That’s why I’ve insisted that additional U.S. action depend upon Iraqis forming an inclusive government…”

John “Lurch” Kerry went to Iraq to meet with the new government and support their efforts to promote “unity”. He too wants them to be more inclusive.

What form these impeding abortion-related terror attacks will take is not known, but a gun-related massacre, car bombing, conventional bombing, and/or bio-terror attack are the most likely terror scenarios. Whatever the attack, it will be used to further divide the American people on the hot-button issue of abortion.

To better understand this repair process, they surgically removed sections of rib cartilage—ranging from three to five millimeters—from mice.

Prof Bob Carter warns of unpreparedness for Global Cooling

Prof Bob Carter warns of unpreparedness for Global Cooling: Professor Bob Carter, writing in today’s edition of The Australian, a major Aussie daily newspaper, warns that the world is unprepared for imminent global cooling, because of the obsession of policy makers with global warming.

According to Bob Carter;

Heading for ice age

“GRAHAM Lloyd has reported on the Bureau of Meteorology’s capitulation to scientific criticism that it should publish an accounting of the corrections it makes to temperature records (“Bureau warms to transparency over adjusted records”, 12/9). Corrections which, furthermore, act to reinforce the bureau’s dedication to a prognosis of future dangerous global warming, by turning cooling temperature trends into warming ones — a practice also known to occur in the US, Britain and New Zealand.

Meanwhile, we have a report by Sue Neales that the size of our grain harvest remains in doubt following severe frosts in southern NSW killing large areas of early wheat crops and also damaging wheat and canola crops in South Australia and Victoria (“Trifecta of calamities to deplete. crop harvest”, 12/9)
Is it unreasonable to be surprised that none of your writers, much less the government, has noticed that leading solar astrophysicists, such as Habibullo Abdussamatov from Pulkovo Observatory in St Petersburg, have for years been commenting on the declining activity of the sun?

Now you might think what happened at the conference was bad enough, but folks it gets worse – not surprisingly.

WHY DOES ISIS BEHEAD PEOPLE? Because Mohammed Did

WHY DOES ISIS BEHEAD PEOPLE? Because Mohammed Did: Those who so zealously reminded us–immediately following the beheading of American journalist James Foley–that ISIS “speaks for no religion” are propagating a lie spawned in the bowels of hell.

In fact, ISIS not only speaks for a particular religion (Islam)–but it also mimics every act of brutality and truculence perpetrated by its founder, the Prophet Mohammed.

From subjugating and raping women, to beheading scores of non-Muslims (including infants)–ISIS is simply following the sadistically bloody paradigm set by the prophet.

Obama’s Greatest Legacy: Remaking the Federal Courts

Obama’s Greatest Legacy: Remaking the Federal Courts: In President Barack Obama’s second term, the Senate has confirmed more than twice the number of judicial nominees than were confirmed in President George W. Bush’s second term. This is due mostly to the fact that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., succeeded in eliminating the filibuster for judicial nominees (excluding the Supreme Court, at least for now) in November 2013.

In this post-filibuster world, it’s a relatively easy task to push through almost any nominee—even those (such as now-First Circuit Judge David Barron) who were opposed by some Democrats. But Republicans could stop this trend if they take the Senate in the upcoming election.

Why Republicans Should Never Play Nice with Democrats

Why Republicans Should Never Play Nice with Democrats: Democrats routinely deride Republicans as extremists bent on coarsening the discourse. In January 2014, in the same interview in which he infamously claimed that ISIS was a “jayvee” team, President Obama blamed conservative media for polarizing the country:

The issue has been the inability of my message to penetrate the Republican base so that they feel persuaded that I’m not the caricature that you see on Fox News or Rush Limbaugh, but I’m somebody who is interested in solving problems and is pretty practical, and that, actually, a lot of the things we’ve put in place worked better than people might think.

This Extremely Crazy Offensive Ad with a 4-Year-Old Is So Outrageous CBS Had to Ban It

This Extremely Crazy Offensive Ad with a 4-Year-Old Is So Outrageous CBS Had to Ban It: A short commercial of a 4-year-old girl reciting “The Pledge of Allegiance” to the United States in order to promote her grandfather’s real estate company has been banned by CBS Sports. Fox News reported about the segment: The national cable sports network rejected a 30-second television advertisement from Windermere Real Estate that shows company owner Dave Retter’s adorable granddaughter delivering the pledge with her hand over her heart. CBS Sports said the ad was “too political” to air during the network’s upcoming broadcast of the Wrangler Champions Challenge rodeo. Obviously, there is nothing political about reciting the pledge in a commercial. The only way CBS Sports might have a case is if the 4-year-old was telling the viewers to vote for a specific political party or legislation. When Retter was interviewed about the ridiculous decision, he said, “We just thought it’s around Sept. 11, Patriot Day, and rodeo is as patriotic a sport as it comes,” Retter told the Herald. “We’ve had so many positive responses, we felt it would be fun to run something positive.”

Like many kids his age, he played sports and video games. He also liked to surf. Brendan also played the bagpipes and was a Eucharistic minister at his church. But none of those things led to his tragic death. What led to Brendan’s death is that he was an American.

Ali Muhammad Brown, 29, was charged with the murder of 19-year old Brendan Tevlin on June 18th. Brown also confessed to killing two people, Ahmed Said and Dwone Anderson-Young, in Seattle on June 1. In addition, he was also charged with shooting another man, Leroy Henderson, in the Skyway area of Seattle in April. All of the men were killed with a 9 mm handgun.

Obama As ISIS Adviser?

Obama As ISIS Adviser?: In a somewhat bizarre snippet from a New York Times account of Obama's prelude to war with ISIS, we find this strange bit of advice for ISIS from the Commander-in-Chief himself. The Times fails to point out that it makes no sense, while also betraying Obama's lack of leadership.

But the president said he had already been headed toward a military response before the men’s deaths. He added that ISIS had made a major strategic error by killing them because the anger it generated resulted in the American public’s quickly backing military action.

If he had been “an adviser to ISIS,” Mr. Obama added, he would not have killed the hostages but released them and pinned notes on their chests saying, “Stay out of here; this is none of your business.” Such a move, he speculated, might have undercut support for military intervention.

Obama’s ship is sinking | New York Post

Obama’s ship is sinking | New York Post: The rising clamor over the beheading of two Americans, and rapidly sinking polls, forced President Obama to reassure the nation last week he had a plan to deal with the Islamic State. He did some of what he had to do, but only some, and so most military analysts believe the expanded airstrikes will not be a sufficient match for the size and weaponry of the terrorist army.

They miss the point. The disjointed speech wasn’t really about terrorism and launching a new war. It was about saving Obama’s presidency.

He is sinking fast and could soon pass the point of no return. In fact, it may already be too late to save the SS Obama.

Active Army Special Forces member's Jaw-Dropping letter to America's politicians - Wounded American Warrior: “To the political leaders of America,

I write to you today regarding my concerns about the current state in which we find our beloved planet and your efforts in resolving the many issues we face.

Over the last decade, we have managed to allow our mighty position at the head of the table to dwindle down to a seat at the kids table, with our counsel being received as if it were that of a child making a suggestion on how to cure the world of evil: everyone thinks it is adorable, but no one takes it seriously.

De Blasio under fire amid new ISIS threat | TheHill

De Blasio under fire amid new ISIS threat | TheHill: New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio is coming under sharp criticism for making decisions that may have undermined the effectiveness of his police department’s counter-terrorism operations.

Thirteen years after the 9/11 attacks on Manhattan, prominent security experts say de Blasio has made fighting terrorism a lower priority in order to appease the communities that helped elect him.

“A classic case of taking your eye off the ball at the worst possible time is Mayor de Blasio in New York,” said John Lehman, a former member of the 9/11 Commission.

Not calling them “combat” is pure sophistry. What will the Obama regime do if a pilot is shot down? A non-boot on the ground advisor kidnapped? A rebel “ally” shoots down an airplane?

The Assault Weapon Myth - NYTimes.com

The Assault Weapon Myth - NYTimes.com: OVER the past two decades, the majority of Americans in a country deeply divided over gun control have coalesced behind a single proposition: The sale of assault weapons should be banned.

That idea was one of the pillars of the Obama administration’s plan to curb gun violence, and it remains popular with the public. In a poll last December, 59 percent of likely voters said they favor a ban.

But in the 10 years since the previous ban lapsed, even gun control advocates acknowledge a larger truth: The law that barred the sale of assault weapons from 1994 to 2004 made little difference.

It sounds like the outline for a Hollywood movie script, but it played out in real life on Wednesday morning in Los Angeles, as law enforcement officials conducted raids on dozens of businesses in the Fashion District in connection with an elaborate international scheme to launder money for Mexican drug cartels. In all, search warrants were executed at over 70 businesses, as well as the residences of several people involved, nine people were arrested, over $100 million was seized, and indictments were issued in three separate cases with more potentially on the way.

Of The 17,891 Deaths From Terrorism Last Year, 19 Were American. Let Iraqis Fight ISIS. | H. A. Goodman

Of The 17,891 Deaths From Terrorism Last Year, 19 Were American. Let Iraqis Fight ISIS. | H. A. Goodman: The reality of the war against terrorism is that since 2001, the U.S. has weakened groups like Al-Qaeda, but "hasn't wiped any out" according to a recent Washington Post article. Retired Air Force General Charles F. Wald is quoted as saying, "We're not going to see an end to this in our lifetime...there isn't going to be any time where we all of a sudden can declare victory." Therefore, it's important to evaluate what our country has sacrificed thus far, especially if there will never be a time we can declare victory. If we can't ever truly claim that we've won, and this is indeed a never-ending conflict, then what have the costs been thus far? After 4,486 U.S. soldiers died in Iraq and 2,344 U.S. soldiers died in Afghanistan, 1 million U.S. soldiers wounded in both wars, and a potential cost of up to $6 trillion, the last thing American soldiers and their families need is another war.

Articles: Why is Obama Kicking the ISIS Can Down the Road?

Articles: Why is Obama Kicking the ISIS Can Down the Road?: President Obama in his ISIS speech did his best to convince the American people that things are under control, that he will pursue a coalition with other nations to degrade and ultimately destroy ISIS and that he will do it only through air strikes. It was clear that the fight against ISIS will not include foot soldiers and would be a long-term effort. This means that it might end up landing in the lap of the next president of the United States.

When Obama declared he had no strategy yet on ISIS a few weeks ago he was perceived as a weak and indecisive leader, but is that all the reason for his reluctance to fight ISIS? Or are there other, hidden reasons why Obama does not want to destroy ISIS?

Islamists Are Not Our Friends - NYTimes.com

Islamists Are Not Our Friends - NYTimes.com: WASHINGTON — A new fault line has emerged in Middle Eastern politics, one that will have profound implications for America’s foreign policy in the region. This rift is not defined by those who support or oppose the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS), or by conflict between Sunnis and Shiites and the proxy war between Saudi Arabia and Iran. It is characterized by a fundamental division between Islamists and non-Islamists.

U.S. intelligence agencies remain uncertain about danger posed by Islamic State - The Washington Post

U.S. intelligence agencies remain uncertain about danger posed by Islamic State - The Washington Post: Hours before President Obama announced a new U.S. military offensive against the Islamic State, one of his top counter­terrorism officials testified to Congress that the al-Qaeda offshoot had an estimated 10,000 fighters.

The next day a new assessment arrived from the CIA: The terrorist organization’s ranks had more than doubled in recent months, surging to somewhere between 20,000 and 31,500 fighters across Iraq and Syria.

The enormous discrepancy reflects, in part, significant uncertainty among U.S. intelligence agencies over the dimensions and danger posed by America’s latest Islamist adversary.

To appreciate just how bad and bizarre it was, compare the president’s speech announcing a new air campaign in Iraq and Syria to Dwight Eisenhower’s 1958 statement on his decision to intervene in Lebanon with 14,000—14,000!—troops. The statement contains no chest-thumping about America’s leadership in science and medicine. No pivot to the auto industry and medical research. Eisenhower simply explained what had been done, and why.

“If the war against Islamic State in Iraq and Syria is important enough for the U.S. to fight, then it is important enough for Congress to vote on. Obama cannot go to war unilaterally without Congress, yet that is precisely what his administration seeks to do in order to spare congressional Democrats a tough vote on the eve of the midterm elections.

So in 2002, Congress agreed to help in the future by creating federally insured — and relatively cheap — terrorism coverage for businesses.

Claims under that coverage were filed for the first time after the Boston Marathon bombings. But insurance companies haven’t paid out — because the federal government doesn’t consider the Boston Marathon bombing an act of terrorism.

Last week, the World Health Organization warned that, by early October, there may be thousands of new cases per week in Liberia, Sierra Leone, Guinea and Nigeria.

President Obama Over-Ruled His Commanders on Ground Troops | National Review Online

President Obama Over-Ruled His Commanders on Ground Troops | National Review Online: [Campaigns in Somalia and Yemen] have dragged on for years and involve far smaller and less-well-financed adversaries than the Islamic State. Although Obama promised a “steady, relentless effort” in a nationally televised address Wednesday night, he also said that “it will take time to eradicate a cancer like ISIL,” using a common acronym for the Islamic State.
Such a mission was not the U.S. military’s preferred option. Responding to a White House request for options to confront the Islamic State, Gen. Lloyd Austin, the top commander of U.S. forces in the Middle East, said that his best military advice was to send a modest contingent of American troops, principally Special Operations forces, to advise and assist Iraqi army units in fighting the militants, according to two U.S. military officials

Obama inevitably will need to use U.S. ground troops to defeat Islamic State, experts warn - Washington Times

Obama inevitably will need to use U.S. ground troops to defeat Islamic State, experts warn - Washington Times: Trying to uproot and destroy the Islamic State’s army of terrorists in Iraq without American ground troops, as President Obama promoted Wednesday night, is doomed to failure, national security experts say.

At the least, the president needs to get ground troops closer to the fight, say some politicians and analysts. He should introduce special operations units to advise and join the Iraqis on hunt-and-kill missions against Islamic State leaders, as well as insert controllers to point out targets for warplanes.



“What a waste of time,” said Larry Johnson,
a former CIA analyst and counterterrorism official at the State
Department. “We have not learned a thing in 80 years. [The Islamic
State] is an army. The air power is not going to get the job done. Until
you put troops in and kill these guys, they’re going to continue. They
adjust to tactics. They meld into [the] civilian population.”

WSJ Attempts to Drum Up Sympathy for Paupers Making $400K a Year: Break out your tiniest violins: a new video released by the Wall Street Journal either as a deliberately unsympathetic joke designed to agitate the stirrings of an American class war or as one of the whitest whines of all time shows just how a person who makes $400,000 per year can feel like SUPER poor.

As the venerable Murdoch property explains, it's really quite easy to feel poor when you make $400,000 a year and have two kids and live in a $1.2 million home and buy a $60,000 new car every four years and go on $25,000 worth of vacations per year and spend $10,000 on your kids' sports and school activities and more than $500 per week on groceries. You're just barely making expenses.

Here, watch the video. It explains everything.

Mad World NewsLeader of Obama’s ‘Moderate’ Syrian Group Made a Bombshell Admission

Mad World NewsLeader of Obama’s ‘Moderate’ Syrian Group Made a Bombshell Admission: Last night, President Obama laid out a strategy for combating ISIS in Iraq and Syria which involved arming the Syrian “rebels.” However, after what the leader of one of the groups admitted, that’s probably not the best idea.

While speaking about the bipartisan push in Congress to approve a $4 billion package, Obama noted that the key to his plan to defeat the Islamic State terrorist group is to arm the “vetted moderate” groups against President Bashar al Assad, one of which is the Free Syrian Army. There’s a problem with this plan, however.
