Chicken Pox Outbreak Puts Illegal Immigrant Facility On Lockdown

 

 

 

” The federal government’s new facility ,  to house illegal immigrant families surging across the border has been put on lockdown because of chicken pox, with no immigrants allowed to be transferred in or out, a congressman said this week.

  Hundreds of illegal immigrants being kept at the campus of the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center in Artesia, New Mexico, are being treated for and vaccinated against chicken pox after an outbreak, said Rep. Steve Pearce, the Republican congressman whose district includes Artesia.

“ As the FLETC facility reaches maximum capacity, I am increasingly concerned for the health and safety of the women and children at FLETC and for the local community. The virus, that has caused two residents to be put in isolation, has halted all departures,” Mr. Pearce said.

  He said he’s asked the Homeland Security Department, which runs the facility, to be available to handle calls from the community.

  The chicken pox outbreak is the latest hiccup for federal officials struggling to gain a handle on the surge of illegal immigrants from Central America this year.”

Democrats Admit Amnesty Is For Political Purposes

 

 

 

 

 

 

” Give us your poor, your tired, your future Democrats waiting to be registered. That’s what some in the party are saying as they urge the president to pursue immigration goals even if it hurts in the ’14 midterms.

  In other words, damn the political torpedoes and full speed ahead in the fundamental demographic and political transformation of America.

” You’ll always have members whose political vulnerability they tie entirely to immigration,” said Rep. Raul Grijalva, D-Ariz. “We didn’t make progress when we were in the majority because we were being protective of those (members) on immigration reform. At some point do you worry more about the future or do you continue to put off the inevitable by not taking action?”

  For Democrats such as Grijalva and Rep. Luis Gutierrez, D-Ill., amnesty and the political benefits stemming from it are inevitable. They are quite willing to use children to exploit the inherent compassion of the American people if it means ensuring the political future of the Democratic Party through the gratitude of millions of illegal aliens allowed to come here and stay.

  Gutierrez recently told a La Raza conference that it was only a “down payment” that President Obama gave the Latino community with his Deferred Action for Children Arrivals (DACA) program that halted the deportation of 600,000 of “our people”:

” Now it is time for the president in the United States … (to) free the mom and dads of the DREAMers and to go further — be broad and expansive and generous.” “

Vans May Be New Form Of Transportation For Illegals, As Feds Attempts To Avoid Scrutiny

 

 

 

 

 

” It appears that many illegal immigrants in California are being transported by federal agents via van caravans instead of large Department of Homeland Security (DHS) buses. Dropping off illegal immigrants from vans, rather than buses, may serve to draw less attention and scrutiny from local residents, many of whom remain resistant to the dumping of foreigners in their communities. “

GOP Senator: Obama To ‘Effectively End Immigration Enforcement’

 

 

 

 

” The Obama administration is preparing to effectively “nullify” the immigration laws of the United States through an executive action, says one Republican senator. As Time reported Thursday, President Obama appears prepared to provide millions of illegal immigrants living in the U.S. work authorization via executive orders:

  When President Obama issues executive orders on immigration in coming weeks, pro-reform activists are expecting something dramatic: temporary relief from deportation and work authorization for perhaps several million undocumented immigrants. If the activists are right, the sweeping move would upend a contentious policy fight and carry broad political consequences.

  The activists met privately with the President and his aides June 30 at the White House, and say in that meeting Obama suggested he will act before the November midterm elections. They hope his decision will offer relief to a significant percentage of the estimated 11.7 million undocumented immigrants in the U.S. “He seems resolute that he’s going to go big and go soon,” says Frank Sharry, executive director of the pro-reform group America’s Voice. “

Sen. Rand Paul Wants To Make It Harder For The Feds To Take Your Stuff

 

 

 

 

 

” Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) today announced he has introduced the FAIR (Fifth Amendment Integrity Restoration) Act to add a bit more due process to the system by which federal prosecutors seize citizens’ assets, often before ever proving they’ve broken the law. From his office’s announcement:

  The FAIR Act would change federal law and protect the rights of property owners by requiring that the government prove its case with clear and convincing evidence before forfeiting seized property. State law enforcement agencies will have to abide by state law when forfeiting seized property. Finally, the legislation would remove the profit incentive for forfeiture by redirecting forfeitures assets from the Attorney General’s Asset Forfeiture Fund to the Treasury’s General Fund.

” The federal government has made it far too easy for government agencies to take and profit from the property of those who have not been convicted of a crime. The FAIR Act will ensure that government agencies no longer profit from taking the property of U.S. citizens without due process, while maintaining the ability of courts to order the surrender of proceeds of crime,” Sen. Paul said. “

” President Obama may rake in the money from fawning donors during his two-day fundraising sweep through Los Angeles this week, but he’s not winning any fans among commuters who, as they do, take to social media to vent.

“ Obama is visiting Los Angeles today which means I won’t be home till around 7:30pm due to traffic delays. #SMH” tweeted Twitter user West Coastin’.

  Obama’s L.A. visit, scheduled to start Wednesday afternoon, means traffic headaches for commuters in West Hollywood, downtown, Mid-Wilshire, Exposition Park, Pacific Palisades and Brentwood, among other areas.

“ If you’re on the Westside today … don’t get trapped in traffic. Obama’s a’comin!” said Twitter user Byrd. “

Border Official Points Gun At Boy Scout

 

 

 

 

” A central Iowa Boy Scout troop just returned from a three-week trip they will likely never forget.

  About 10 days into the trip, an innocent action by one of the nearly two dozen Scouts at the Canadian border into Alaska set off a chain of events that lead to a U.S. border official pointing a gun at a scout’s head.

  Boy Scout Troop 111 Leader Jim Fox spelled out what happened to him and the Mid-Iowa Boy Scout Troop 111 as four van-loads of Scouts and adult volunteers tried to drive from Canada into Alaska.

  Fox said one of the Scouts took a picture of a border official, which spurred agents to detain everyone in that van and search them and their belongings. “

    This is national security in Obama’s Amerika … Threaten unarmed boy scouts and grandmas and run from illegal immigrants and drug mules …

Voters See A More Divided Nation; GOPers More Enthusiastic To Vote

 

 

 

” Voters strongly believe the United States is a more divided nation these days, and they think both sides are to blame. Most are also ready to do something about it at the ballot box in November.

  Sixty-seven percent (67%) of Likely U.S. Voters say America is a more divided nation than it was four years ago. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that just seven percent (7%) think the country is less divided now, while 21% rate the level of division as about the same.(To see survey question wording, click here.)

  Among voters who see more division or about the same level of it, 35% believe President Obama is to blame. But 34% point the finger at Republicans in Congress instead. Twenty-three percent (23%) say they’re both to blame. Just five percent (5%) attribute the division to something else.”

 

     All is proceeding as the Left has planned in the Balkanization of America , the first step towards bringing our nation to it’s knees …

LA Street Artist Blasts Obama For‘Scandalous’ Fundraiser

 

 

 

” As President Obama arrives in Los Angeles for his $32,000 per plate fundraiser at the home of Shonda Rhimes this week, a local street artist is pointing out the irony of the producer of the hit TV show Scandal, a show about a Washington public relations firm that specializes in managing political scandals, hosting the producer of such actual scandals as the cover-up surrounding the Benghazi attack, the lost hard-drives of IRS officials targeting conservatives, and the Fast and Furious gun running scheme.

  Posters went up Monday night all over Hollywood around Rhimes’s Hancock Park home and the Sunset Gower Studios where Scandal is filmed.”

 

 

 

 

” The posters feature a modified version of the Scandal logo, which now reads “Scandals” and a quote from Rhimes’s infamous commencement speech at Dartmouth where she urged graduates, “Don’t be an asshole.” The artist added a hashtag to the epithet in a seeming nod to another part of Rhimes’s speech in which the producer called out online social movements like Michelle Obama’s #SaveOurGirls as being faux-activism. “A hashtag is not a movement,” Rhimes declared. “

Crossings Trigger Anti-Immigration Rallies

 

 

 

 

” The influx of thousands of Central Americans into the U.S. has energized anti-illegal immigration activists who organized rallies across the country in recent days.

How can we afford to take care of other countries’ poor? Americans are going hungry without jobs and no one is attending to them,” said Herbert Baker, a chiropractor standing atop a highway overpass in Los Angeles hoisting an American flag and a sign that read “Stop Illegal Immigration.”

The Los Angeles protest was among 40 in southern California and hundreds held in the U.S., part of a national call for a crackdown on illegal immigration coordinated by a coalition of anti-illegal immigrant groups. Some rallies, including those in Little Rock, Ark., Dallas and Philadelphia, drew counter protesters.”

 

 

    In typical Obama/Liberal fashion the “answer” lies in spending … spending money that we don’t have to care for people we didn’t invite … Money that our veterans don’t get , only potential democratic constituents need apply … Corruption everywhere you look from our “most open , honest and transparent” administration .

 

 

” President Obama has asked Congress for $3.7 billion in emergency spending to respond to the crisis and lawmakers are weighing whether to amend a 2008 law to expedite deportations. The House and Senate are moving forward on separate bills with no clear deal in sight. On Friday, Mr. Obama is scheduled to meet at the White House with the presidents of Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador to discuss ways to stanch the flow.

  In Texas’ Rio Grande Valley, the main entry point, federal officials and aid workers have reported that fewer than 100 minors a day were apprehended by border agents last week, compared with as many as 300 a day recently.”

Mystery: Posters In NYC, D.C. Call Clintons ‘America’s Lannisters’

 

 

 

” A new Clinton mystery has hit New York City and Washington, D.C. with the surprise display of posters declaring the Clintons as “America’s Most Dangerous Family” and “America’s Lannisters.”

  Pulled by advertising bikes over the weekend, the posters use themes from TV’s “Game of Thrones” and “House of Cards” in portraying BillHillary and Chelsea Clinton — and advisor James Carville — as evil, though they don’t indicate exactly what the advertising is for.

  One of the ad posters appears similar to the style of the hit Netflix series, “House of Cards.” The poster is in black and white and shows Bill and Hillary under an upside down U.S. flag, the sign of distress. That poster reads, “America’s Most Dangerous Family.” “

What This Rancher Found Near The Mexican Border Should Sound The Alarms

 

Screen Shot 2014-07-15 at 8.38.11 AM

 

 

” Texas rancher Mike Vickers found an odd book on his property: an Urdu-to-English dictionary. Urdu is the official language of Pakistan, and is spoken in Muslim areas of India and parts of Afghanistan.

  This is certainly an unusual item to find on the border of Mexico, which is a Spanish-speaking country. From The Blaze:

  While local ranchers have to contend with torn-up fences, broken water lines, contaminated wells and robbery on a daily basis from illegal immigrants streaming through, a Texas Border Patrol agent told The Blaze there is “no doubt” that among the hordes of Central Americans are also crossers from Pakistan and Afghanistan, raising significant national security concerns. “

 

 

     Anyone that believes the only people flooding across our wide open southern border either possesses a death wish or is completely ignorant of the ways of the world . No nation can survive if it cannot control who enters its territory . This is further proof that our “leader” actively seeks the end of our way of life … after all he has freely admitted that he does not believe in American Exceptionalism .

Report: Small Lifeless , Dead Children Found “Washed Up Along Riverbank” of Rio Grande

 

 

 

 

 

” A Fox News exclusive reported this morning by Jana Winter inexplicably buried the lede.

  Winter reports that several dead children have been discovered “washed up along the riverbank” of the Rio Grande, but fails to note that there have been no reports by the Obama administration on this.

  This indicates a pattern of covering up dead illegal alien kids by the Obama administration. It was two weeks before news was reported on the sole child death acknowledged by the Obama administration, Gilberto Ramos, a 15 year-old boy from Guatemala whose body was found in the Texas brush dead from the heat. “

 

   What’s a few dead children when you are trying to remake American society in your own (Stalinist) image ? The Left is well-versed in the knowledge that some must die that others may rule …

Utah Man Arrested For Extinguishing A Brush Fire

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

” A man was arrested for disorderly conduct and obstructing justice when he refused to stop spraying water on a brush fire that had ignited in a field behind his home.

  The incident happened on July 4th in a field located behind a row of houses. At approximately 9:30 p.m., some brush caught fire due to errant use of fireworks. Spectators quickly assisted and one woman called 9-1-1 for help.

“ An apparent spark lit a tree over there from an old orchard on fire,” said 36-year-old Santaquin resident, Jason Thornton. “Myself, my two nephews, and a few neighbors rushed to action, got our hoses out, contained the fire to one tree, waiting for the fire department to show up.”

  Mr. Thornton continued: “While fighting the fire, somebody said, ‘stop!’ I told them, ‘no’ in a very unpolite way. He told me again to stop. I said, ‘No, I’m manning this fire. I’m not stopping until the fire department gets here.’”

“ Then the man came over and put me in handcuffs and told me I was under arrest,” he said. “They gave me a citation for disorderly conduct and obstruction of justice.”

Border Patrol Tells Agent: ‘You Must Cease and Desist’ From Speaking With Media

 

 

 

 

 

” The U.S. Customs and Border Protection agency has served one of its agents with a letter saying “you must immediately cease and desist” from issuing statements and press releases to the media with information that is “Law Enforcement sensitive,” according to the document, obtained by National Review Online.  

  Kathleen Scudder, assistant chief patrol agent of the San Diego Sector, sent the letter to agent Ron Zermeno, health and safety director of National Border Patrol Council Local 1613, notifying him of an investigation into his conduct and to “remind” him that no agent should make statements or issue press releases “without proper authorization.”  

  Zermeno confirmed the validity of the letter to NRO. He says he thinks the order is retaliation for his actions as a whistleblower, which have involved exposing the public-health risks associated with the illegal immigrants transported to the San Diego Sector. “As a union officer, I feel it’s my job to expose when management is putting people at risk,” he says. “They violated their oath as Border Patrol agents.” “

 

 

   The NRO continues to expose the Fed’s efforts to stifle the few truth-tellers willing to come forward and speak out against the policies of this “most open , honest and transparent” administration .

Obama Heads To Texas With No Plans To Visit Border

 

 

 

 

” For President Barack Obama, the humanitarian crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border is increasingly becoming a political liability, giving Republicans a fresh opportunity to question his administration’s competence and complicating the debate over the nation’s fractured immigration laws.

  Still, Obama is resisting calls to visit the border during his two-day fundraising trip to Texas, where he arrives late Wednesday afternoon. Instead, Obama will hold a meeting hundreds of miles away in Dallas to discuss the crisis with faith leaders and Texas officials, including Republican Gov. Rick Perry.

  Obama’s trip comes one day after he asked Congress for $3.7 billion in emergency spending to get more resources to the border.”

 

 

* We use the scare quotes around the word “border” because the “border” essentially no longer exists . If the theoretical line in the sand can be crossed with impunity then it is not a “border” which is defined as:

” the line that separates one country, state, province, etc., from another; frontier line: You cannot cross the   border without a visa.”

   Even members of his own party are starting to question his desire to deal with the “humanitarian” crisis of his own creation …

” Rep. Henry Cuellar, D-Texas, raised the prospect that Obama’s failure to take a firsthand look at the border crisis could be akin to former President George W. Bush viewing the devastation of Hurricane Katrina from the air instead of on the ground.”

    The only problem with Rep Cuellar’s comparison of the illegal immigrant crisis with Bush’s Katrina moment is the fact that in Bush’s case the press had a desire to embarrass the administration whilein Obama’s case they are doing everything within their power to protect him from the same sort of scrutiny .

Anti-Government Citizen Militia Groups Want To ‘Secure The Border’ In Texas

 

 

 

 

” A slew of anti-government groups — many of which participated in the standoff at Cliven Bundy’s Nevada ranch — are recruiting armed volunteers to travel to the Texas-Mexico border as a citizen militia to participate in “Operation Secure Our Border,” which aims to stop the surge of immigrants into the country.”

 

   How did standing up for the Constitution mutate into an anti-government stance ? We of the Patriot/Tea Party movement aren’t “anti-government” … we are anti-corrupt government and anti-Statist government . That puts us in the fine company of our Founders and at odds with the likes of the MSM and Obama/Statists .

 

  The groups, who identify themselves as “Patriots,” “Oathkeepers” and “Three Percenters,” are using social media, blogs and a 24-hour hotline to recruit and mobilize volunteers that will travel to Laredo, carry firearms and attempt to assist law enforcement agencies on the border.

  However, U.S. Customs and Border Protection said they do not “endorse or support any private group or organization from taking matters into their own hands as it could have disastrous personal and public safety consequences.”

 

   There is no surprise that ICE and the Border Patrol do not “endorse” private efforts to secure the border , after all how would it look if private efforts turned out to be more effective than the elaborately funded government entities charged with the task ?

   People might start to ask why we are paying staggering sums of money to fund organizations that are complete failures and if they really begin to question that there is certainly no reason to consider only border security .

The Independence Day Float That’s Making Obama Supporters Irate

 

 

The Independence Day Float That’s Making Obama Supporters Irate

 

 

 

” Freedom of speech is something that is widely celebrated from members of the left. From dressing up like vaginas to prove a point about “women’s rights,” destroying 9/11 memorials, or defecating on the American flag, liberals fully support freedom of speech. That is, until you criticize their lord and savior, Barack Obama.

  Liberals are losing their minds after an Independence Day parade in Norfolk, Nebraska included a float of a “presidential library,” which depicted the Obama’s library as an outhouse.  The main complaint – you guessed it – was that the float was “racist.” “

 

 

 

    Let’s compare and contrast , shall we . The above float along with the rodeo clown who was fired from his job for wearing an Obama mask are the two most “outrageous” and “racist” examples of free speech that have provoked the ire of the tolerant left and unleashed torrents of condemnation from same .

 

 

 

 

 

 

     On the other hand for the eight years that Bush was in office he was subjected to an unceasing barrage of hatred and vitriol by the “tolerant” Left that is unprecedented in modern political history , all held up as shining examples of the power of our Constitutional rights to free expression , and not just from private citizens , but even from the establishment media itself …

 

 

 

 

   Of course everyone can remember the Bush = Hitler meme …

 

 

 

  And then there were the calls for Bush’s outright assassination , in the name of free speech , mind you …

 

 

 

 

 

 

   And what of the accolades heaped on the movie “Death of a President” by the oh so tolerant trendsetters of the progressive movement ?

 

 

 

 

 

 

    Can anyone of us imagine the uproar and cries of racism that would resound should a similar theme be explored with BHO as the target ?

   These are just a few examples of the hypocrisy on display by our “liberal” fellows and don’t even take into consideration the hatred displayed towards others on the right such as Sarah Palin , John McCain , Michelle Bachmann , Ann Coulter and many others .

   However you look at it , a “presidential outhouse” and an Obama rodeo clown are quite tame in comparison to the vile criticisms the proponents of conservatism have been subjected to over the years .
