Democrats call for 'Flood' of Muslims to U.S.



SHAW Yesterday I heard Rush Limbaugh say that there was NO U.S. immigration from 1924 to 1965. There is no law that says we have to take any immigrants, any year.
I think the U.S.needs to halt all immigration for 5 years, check all immigrants here now, deport illegals and see if any remaing immigrants are dangerous to our security. The U.K.is now starting to deport illegals and seize any wages they have been paid.

A group of 14 Democrat senators has written a letter to President Obama urging him to “dramatically increase” the number of Syrian refugees being resettled into American cities and towns.

They say the U.S. needs to take in at least 65,000 Syrians as permanent refugees over the next year-and-a-half.
“While the United States is the largest donor of humanitarian assistance to Syrian refugees, we must also dramatically increase the number of Syrian refugees that we accept for resettlement,” says the four-page letter to Obama, copied to Secretary of State John Kerry and Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson.
More than 3.5 million Syrians are registered with the United Nations as refugees, and the U.N. wants to assign about 350,000 of them to so-called “third-party countries.”

The 14 senators, led by Richard Durbin, D-Ill., Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., and Diane Feinstein, D-Calif., cite the research of the Refugee Council USA to make their case for 65,000 Syrian refugees by the end of 2016. RCUSA is the main lobbying arm of the nine agencies that contract with the federal government to resettle refugees in cities and towns across America.

More than 90 percent of Syrian refugees will be Muslim

SENATE DECEPTIONS Advance Trade Maneuver To Give Obama New Power in TPP Trade Deal…


By sundance-ConservativeTreeHouse

Tell me again what benefit there was to re-electing Mitch McConnell, or giving Republicans the victory in the Senate?

 

Trade Promotion Authority or TPA contains fast-track provisions would allow Congress, under strict timelines, to consider trade deals with a simple up-or-down vote without any amendments or requirements of a Senate super-majority to end debate.


This would grant new power to the executive branch and reduce congressional ability to modify of block the TPP bill itself.  Obviously this would help Obama complete the final details of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), with the other 11 nations, a bloc that represents about 40 percent of the global economy.

(Via Washington Post President Obama won a big victory for his trade agenda Friday with the Senate’s approval of fast-track legislation that could make it easier for him to complete a wide-ranging trade deal that would include 11 Pacific Rim nations.
A coalition of 48 Senate Republicans and 14 Democrats voted for Trade Promotion Authority late Friday, sending the legislation to a difficult fight in the House, where it faces more entrenched opposition from Democrats.

The Senate coalition fought off several attempts by opponents to undermine the legislation, defeating amendments that were politically popular but potentially poisonous to Obama’s bid to secure the trade deal.
“This is an important bill, likely the most important bill we will pass this year. It’s important to President Obama,” Sen. Orrin G. Hatch (R-Utah), chairman of the Senate Finance Committee and primary author of the bill, said at the close of debate. 

They have to pass the trade bill, before we are allowed to actually see the trade bill.

The actual trade deal itself is being kept secret, classified, and cloaked in darkness.
[…]  Senators are forced to go into a classified viewing room in order to read the full text of the document, but are not allowed to bring in key staff or take notes on what is included in the bill text.  
Not only this, but as you would assume for classified documents, elected officials are unable to speak to anyone without proper security clearance about the specific details of the trade negotiations without suffering potential criminal legal ramifications.

Report: Israel offered Saudi Arabia use of its Iron Dome technology


 By MAARIV ONLINE. Reuters--

Arabic-language newspaper Rai al-Youm reported on Saturday that Israel has offered Saudi Arabia to use its Iron Dome anti-rocket technology.

The offer was made to the Kingdom to defend its border with Yemen that has come under numerous rocket attacks.

According to the report, the offer was made last week during meetings in Amman between the Saudis and the US ambassador to Jordan. A spokesman for the Jordanian government said that he was not aware of a meeting between the Saudis and the Israelis in Amman, the news outlet reported. 

Saudi Arabia reportedly rejected the offer, according to the London based newspaper. 

On Thursday and Friday cross border rocket attacks launched from inside Yemen killed two people in southern Saudi Arabia, Saudi Arabia's state news agency SPA reported on Friday.

SPA quoted a Civil Defense official in the southwestern province of Jizan as saying that a child was killed and three other children were wounded on Friday in the al-Tawal region.

A rocket attack on Thursday killed one citizen and wounded two others in al Hosn village, the agency reported earlier.

According to Gallup’s tracking surveys in the first four of 2015, 3.8 percent ! of the U.S. adult population says they are lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender.

However, in a survey conducted May 6-10, Gallup asked: “Just your best guess, what percent of Americans today would you say are gay or lesbian?"

On average, Americans said it was 23.2 percent.

Senate Passes White House-backed trade bill



By CHARLES BABINGTON .CNS--

In a victory for President Barack Obama, the Senate passed bipartisan legislation Friday night to strengthen the administration's hand in global trade talks, clearing the way for a highly unpredictable summer showdown in the House.

The vote was 62-37 to give Obama authority to complete trade deals that Congress could approve or reject, but not change. A total of 48 Republicans supported the measure, but only 14 of the Senate's 44 Democrats backed a president of their own party on legislation near the top of his second-term agenda.

Obama hailed the vote in a statement that said trade deals "done right" are important to "expanding opportunities for the middle class, leveling the playing field for American workers and establishing rules for the global economy that help our businesses grow and hire."

Separate legislation to prevent parts of the anti-terror USA Patriot Act from lapsing on June 1 was caught in a post-midnight showdown between a pair of Kentuckians — Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on the one hand, and presidential hopeful Rand Paul on the other.

McConnell favored renewal of a program of bulk telephone collection by the National Security Agency, while Paul was unyielding in opposition. "My filibuster continues to end NSA illegal spying," he tweeted.

By contrast, a two-month bill to prevent a cutoff in federal highway funding cleared with ease as lawmakers covetously eyed a weeklong vacation!

The Permanent Presidency of Barack Obama

By Matthew Clarke.Directorblue--

Imagine if the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) was free to target conservatives at will for their political beliefs. Imagine if the IRS could single out families who chose to adopt children in need for intrusive and abusive audits.

Imagine if the Veterans Administration (VA) could pick and chose which of our nation’s war heroes receive desperately needed medical care and which ones died, neglected by the nation they fought to protect.

Imagine if the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) could mandate that nuns and Christian business owners alike provide abortion pills in direct violation of their firmly held religious beliefs – the very foundational principles on which they base their lives and livelihoods.

Imagine if the IRS could create new federal subsidies out of thin air for the largest new federal program in decades, ObamaCare, ignoring duly enacted federal law to the contrary.

Imagine if the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) could decide not to deport illegal aliens and instead grant them permanent legal status in America, in clear contravention to U.S. law.

Imagine if the Department of Justice (DOJ) could manufacture or piece togethercharges against patriotic Americans, using the federal law enforcement apparatus as a political weapon.

This is the reality we face in America today.

In HER SECRET EMAIL ACCOUNT: Granny Hillary Didn’t Even Know Murdered Ambassador Chris Stevens’ Name


By Warner Todd Huston. Directorblue--

In her secret email account messages that were released today, Clinton kept calling Ambassador Chris Stevens “Chris Smith.
Clinton sent an email with the subject line “Chris Smith” shortly before midnight to three top aides, Cheryl Mills, Jake Sullivan and Victoria Nuland.
“Cheryl told me the Libyans confirmed his death. Should we announce tonight or wait until morning?” Clinton wrote.
Four Americans were killed that night after a terrorist group affiliated with al Qaeda stormed the consulate. But none were named Chris Smith.
Clinton likely jumbled the names of ambassador Chris Stevens and diplomat Sean Smith. Two former Navy SEALs, Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods, were also killed.
Clinton couldn’t even be bothered to learn the name of the man killed by terrorists.

This is the woman that Democrats want to make President.

Half of All Jobs May Go Away Soon

By Kas Thomas. Blogorrhea--
excerpts

A more significant shortcoming of Piketty is that he has so little to say about the transformative nature of technology in economic history. Here, I would expect Piketty to know his stuff. But he mostly sidesteps technology, leaving it the unmentioned elephant T. rex in the room.

Does anyone really doubt that technology, not politics, was what transformed Western economies in the nineteenth century (the Industrial Revolution)? Does anyone doubt that the invention of fire, the wheel, agriculture, ocean-faring ships with a magnetic compass, etc., were utterly transformative for ancient cultures, making the idea of an economy (thus an economist) possible in the first place?

Does anyone doubt that the invention of the microprocessor (followed a few years later by the worldwide networking of computers) was an epochal event? Surely all the people who are spending time and resources on bringing about an Internet of Things (or Internet of Everything; a $19 trillion global opportunity, according to Cisco) realize how transformative microprocessors will be seen, in future history books, to have been?

The impact of the transformation has yet to be fully felt. If we're to believe the widely cited study by Oxford University's Carl Benedikt Frey and Michael A. Osborne (2013), half of all jobs could go away soon, due to technology. Said Frey and Osborne:
According to our estimate, 47 percent of total US employment is in the high risk category, meaning that associated occupations are potentially automatable over some unspecified number of years, perhaps a decade or two.

Wait, you’re telling me the government can just come in and take my stuff?


by Matt Vespa. HotAir--

On Monday, FreedomWorks and the Center for American Progress (CAP) joined forces to invite bloggers, writers, and some think-tank analysts for a daylong conference on justice reform. One of the aspects I liked about the conference is that it shows on some issues the left and right can agree.
It’s disconcerting that we’ve gradually lost the ability to have a conversation with one another–the Indiana RFRA fiasco is a result of this decay in public discourse. So, it didn’t end like the Red Wedding­; it didn’t even turn out like the end of Gangs of New York. In fact, despite our political differences, we found out that we actually agree a lot on the issues regarding mandatory minimums and civil asset forfeiture, which desperately need reform.
According to the Heritage Foundation, civil asset forfeiture is “a legal tool that allows law enforcement officials to seize property that they assert has been involved in certain criminal activity.” Julie Borowski, a former analyst at Freedomworks, gave a thorough presentation on what some call legalized theft (yes, I know some consider taxes to fall into the same category).
The mantra for those who support this legal tool in our justice system can be best described by former President George H.W. Bush who said, “ Asset forfeiture laws allow [the government] to take the alleged ill-gotten gains of drug kingpins and use them to put more cops on the streets.”

Yet, it places the burden of proof on the property owner, which is a perversion of justice.

Horror: 41% of Americans Want Free Speech Restrictions

 Rob Knowles. Least Resistance--

Free speech is not to be regulated like diseased cattle and impure butter. The audience that hissed yesterday may applaud today, even for the same performance.” – William O. Douglas

The first amendment is the document that secured in pen our pre-existing right to speak freely. The first amendment didn’t create free speech anymore than the civil rights movement made blacks equal to whites—it simply set an already existing human right into man-made law.

The freedom to speak openly without fear of reprisal is not just a human right, it is part of our state of being; it’s as essential to who we are as our consciousness.

But there are those who want to suppress this intrinsic right because of their own sensibilities.
According to a new YouGov poll, when asked the question: “Would you support or oppose a law that would make it a crime for people to make public comments intended to stir up hatred against a group based on things such as their race, gender, religion, ethnic group, or sexual orientation?” a stunning 41% said yes. This is the plurality. 39% opposed.

Matthew McConaughey to Grads: Don’t Fall Into ‘Entitlement Trap’


 By Micheal W. Chapman. CNS--

As the commencement speaker for the class of 2015 at the University of Houston, Academy Award-winning actor Matthew McConaughey advised the graduates that life is “not fair” and it “won’t ever be,”  and urged them to not adopt the mentality that they are “a victim” and entitled to things.
“Life’s not fair, it never was, it isn’t now and it won’t ever be,” McConaughey, a Texas native, told the graduates on May 15.
He also told them, “Do not fall into the trap, the entitlement trap, of feeling like you’re a victim. You are not.”
McConaughey, who started his acting career in television commercials in the early 1990s, also gave the graduating students some advise on jobs and the economy.
"Some of you already have a job lined up, you have a path where today's job is going to become tomorrow's career,” he said.  “But for most of you, the future is probably still a little fuzzy. And you don't have that job that directly reflects the degree that you just got.”

“Many of you don't even have a job at all,” said McConaughey. “You don't have the answers and it's pretty damn scary. And I say that's okay because that is how it is.”

“This is the reality that many of you are facing, this is the world that we live in,” he said.
McConaughey, 45, is married and has three children. He graduated from the University of Texas at Austin in 1993 with a B.A. degree in Radio-Television-Film.  He won the 2013 Oscar for Best Actor in the movie Dallas Buyers Club.  He reportedly has a net worth of $75 million.

Obama: I criticize Israel because I care about it and the Jewish people



Obama: Supreme leader is anti-Semitic: ynet

Israel News--
YNET

US President Barack Obama believes he must speak out about his differences of opinion with Israel's leadership out of deep concern for the state and the Jewish people, he told the Atlantic's Jeffrey Goldberg in a far-reaching interview published Thursday.
"I care so deeply about the State of Israel, precisely because I care so much about the Jewish people, I feel obliged to speak honestly and truthfully about what I think will be most likely to lead to long-term security, and will best position us to continue to combat anti-Semitism," he said "I make no apologies for that precisely because I am secure and confident about how deeply I care about Israel and the Jewish people."

The president also accepted that he was ultimately responsible for imminent agreement on Iran's nuclear program, which seeks to stymie any Islamic Republic desire to develop atomic bombs.

“Look, 20 years from now, I’m still going to be around, God willing. If Iran has a nuclear weapon, it’s my name on this,” he said. “I think it’s fair to say that in addition to our profound national-security interests, I have a personal interest in locking this down.”

Powerline: Another Reason why Hillary Clinton does not deserve to be president

By Paul Mirengoff. Powerline--

Anti-Hillary Clinton political ads are writing themselves on a weekly basis. The latest source is this New York Times report that Hillary’s private email account contained sensitive information. The official name for the information is “sensitive but unclassified” (SBU).

What sensitive but unclassified information did Hillary have in her private account. According to the Times, “that information included the whereabouts and travel plans of American officials in Libya as security there deteriorated during the uprising against the leadership of Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi in 2011.”

Considering the fate of Christopher Stevens the following year, it’s safe to say that this information was, indeed, sensitive. And it’s safe to say that it should not have been contained in an unsecure email system.

Noah Rothman at Commentary gets a head start on translating the Times’ story into a political ad. He asks: “Do you deserve to be President after jeopardizing national security?” The question, as they say, answers itself.

Rothman also reminds us of the string of false statements Clinton made about her private emails during her U.S. press conference in March:

Standing before a lectern at the United Nations, Clinton claimed that she only used one mobile device in service to her sense of entitlement while at State. We now know there were at least two devices she used to conduct State business.

Video: FBI Now Going Door-To-Door Interrogating Americans About Jade Helm Military Exercises: “We Follow Up With Anything Like That”

By Marc Salvo. SHTF Plan--

Are you being watched by the Federal Bureau of Investigation because of your concerns about an overbearing government?
The answer should be obvious given the nature of America’s budding surveillance state and a new video shows just how far law enforcement officials are willing to go to protect the Homeland from anyone who engages in the dissemination of ideas that are counter to the official narrative.
As you’ll see in the footage below, if you show concern or are outspoken about the upcoming Jade Helm 15 military exercises, then you may be getting a personal home visit from the FBI.
FBI: Basically we’re just following up on a phone call… there’s a lot of news reporting about Jade Helm and that… and I was just wondering if you have a couple minutes to talk about it… you had called in kind of concerned about it… We follow up with anything like that… we follow all that national stuff.
If you’ve ever wondered if there is a main core red list and what it’s like to be visited by agents of the Federal government because you support the individual rights outlined by the U.S. Constitution, then watch the videos
