Illegals Processing Center Locked Down For Chicken Pox

From the Washington Times:

Chicken pox outbreak puts illegal immigrant facility on lockdown

By Stephen Dinan | July 30, 2014

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.

How racist of them! But how could such an outbreak happen after all the careful monitoring of the health of these illegal aliens we have been told about?

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.

Networks Skipped -2.9% Growth, Eagerly Cover 4% GDP

From the Media Research Center:

Networks That Ignored Bad GDP News, Eagerly Cover ‘Good News’

ABC, NBC skipped first quarter drop and downward revisions, but happy to report growth.

Julia A. Seymour | 7/31/2014

All three broadcast network evening shows reported the higher than expected 4 percent gross domestic product (GDP) growth rate for the second quarter on July 30. However, ABC and NBC evening shows previously skipped the three prior GDP announcements that showed the economy shrinking in the first quarter.

ABC and NBC evening news programs ignored the Commerce Department’s announcement of negative 0.1 percent GDP growth on April 30 and the revision to negative 1.0 percent growth on May 29.

Again, on June 25 when the Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA) said the economy actually shrank by 2.9 percent in Q1, both “World News” and “Nightly News” remained silent.

Immigration Obama’s Worst Issue, He Pivots To Economy

From the Washington Post:

Immigration is now President Obama’s worst issue

By Aaron Blake | July 31, 2014

Immigration has emerged as perhaps President Obama’s worst issue — definitely for today, and maybe of his entire presidency — when it comes to public perception.

Wow, worse than his handling of foreign affairs? Worse than his handling of the economy? Worse than the handling of his myriad scandals? Worse than his handling of Obama-Care? That is really going some.

A new poll from AP-GfK shows more than two-thirds of Americans (68 percent) disapprove of Obama’s handling of the immigration issue in general. Just 31 percent approve — down from 38 percent two months ago…

We tried to find an issue on which Obama has earned such poor marks, at any point in his presidency.

Illegals Draining Resources, Increasing Carbon Footprint

From the Washington Examiner:

Shock: 80% of U.S. population growth is from immigrants, resources being sucked dry

By Paul Bedard | July 30, 2014

A group dedicated to saving the planet by cutting runaway population increases is raising a new and shocking issue in Washington’s bitter fight over immigration reform: Most of the nation’s population growth is from immigrants, and they are consuming resources dangerously fast.

According to Negative Population Growth Inc., 80 percent of the growth in U.S. population comes from immigration, legal, illegal and among American-born children of immigrants.

“With increased population, we see a direct increase in the problems our nation faces on a daily basis: pollution, over-consumption, traffic gridlock, crowded schools and hospitals, overburdened social services, unemployment, crumbling infrastructure, urban sprawl, over-development, threatened or extinct animal and plant species, and dwindling natural resources,” said said Tracy Canada, the group’s deputy director.

Obama Has Given A La Raza-Affiliated ‘Non-Profit’ $356M

From the Washington Examiner:

Nonprofit that helps unaccompanied minors has seen explosive growth

By Susan Crabtree | July 31, 2014

The growing number of unaccompanied children coming across the southern border in recent years has proven lucrative for a Texas nonprofit with ties to a major immigration advocacy group, and more money could be on the way. Austin-based Southwest Key Programs has received more than $368 million in government grants over the last six years, $356 million of which went to provide food, shelter and other services for unaccompanied minors coming into the United States.

Wonder if they have ever had their tax exempt status questioned by the IRS? Or if they have ever been audited? (Just kidding.)

The nonprofit, which employs 2,200 people in six states, has undergone explosive growth in its budget during President Obama’s time in office, according to tax filings and federal spending databases.

Lerner Email Exchange Mocked Talk Radio Hosts, Callers

From the UK’s Daily Mail:

Emails reveal IRS official Lois Lerner called conservatives ‘crazies’ and ‘a**holes’ as

By David Martosko | 30 July 2014

Former senior IRS official Lois Lerner had deeply held political biases while she was in a position of authority, according to Republican lawmakers who unveiled emails on Wednesday showing her referring to conservatives as ‘crazies’ and ‘a**holes.’

Michigan Rep. Dave Camp, who chairs the powerful House Ways and Means Committee, wrote to Attorney General Eric Holder to demand what he called ‘a serious investigation’ – something he said has been lacking… He told the attorney general on Wednesday that the newly disclosed email correspondence ‘shows Ms. Lerner’s mistreatment of conservative groups was driven by her personal hostility toward conservatives.’

Clearly, Mr.

AP (Laughs): Ex- IRS Official Called GOP ‘Crazies’ In Email

From an amused Associated Press:

Former IRS official called GOP ‘crazies’ in email

By STEPHEN OHLEMACHER | July 30, 2014

WASHINGTON (AP) — A former IRS official at the heart of the agency’s tea party controversy called Republicans "crazies" and more in newly released emails…

What a milquetoast headline and lead. ‘Crazies’ is the least of what Ms.  Lerner called conservatives. But the AP does its best to play this down. (And the rest of the MSM are ignoring it entirely.)

When, in fact, these emails are the mother of all smoking guns, since they show that Lerner has a real hatred of conservatives and thereby a motive to target and harass them.

These emails also (once again) disprove Obama’s claim that there is not a "smidgen" of evidence that the IRS was targeting conservatives.

Nate Silver Points Out The Real Impeachment Promoters

From Nate Silver at FiveThirtyEight:

Democrats Are Way More Obsessed With Impeachment Than Republicans

By Nate Silver | July 30, 2014

[O]n the whole, Democrats are spending a lot more time talking about impeachment than Republicans.

Consider, for example, the Sunlight Foundation’s Capitol Words database, which tracks words spoken in the House and Senate. So far in July, there have been 10 mentions of the term “impeachment” in Congress and four others of the term “impeach.” Eleven of the 14 mentions have been made by Democratic rather than Republican members of Congress, however…

[On cable news] The scoreboard so far in July: Fox News has 95 mentions of impeachment, and MSNBC 448. That works out to about 2.7 mentions per hour of original programming on MSNBC, or once every 22 minutes.

Jackson-Lee Doesn’t Remember Trying To Impeach Bush

From the Daily Caller:

Dem Rep Who Co-Sponsored Bush Impeachment Bill Denies It

Chuck Ross | 07/30/2014

In a speech on the floor of the House Wednesday, Texas U.S. Rep. Sheila Jackson-Lee claimed that Democrats never sought to impeach President George W. Bush. Not only is that claim false, but Jackson-Lee actually co-sponsored a 2008 bill to do just that and spoke in at least one House committee hearing in support of the effort.

Jackson-Lee’s remarks Wednesday came ahead of a vote on a Republican-backed measure to sue President Obama for overstepping his bounds in implementing Obamacare. “I ask my colleagues to oppose this resolution for it is in fact a veiled attempt for impeachment and it undermines the law that allows a president to do his job,” Jackson-Lee said on Wednesday.

LAT: GOP Vote To Sue Obama (Latest Example Of Racism)

From the Los Angeles Times:

GOP-led House votes to sue Obama in first-of-its-kind lawsuit

By Michael A. Memoli | July 30, 2014

The House vote to sue President Obama is the first such legal challenge by a chamber of Congress against a president and a historic foray in the fight over constitutional checks and balances. Wednesday’s nearly party-line vote followed a feisty floor debate and offered a fresh example of how the capital’s hyper-partisanship has led both parties into unprecedented territory, going to new and greater lengths to confront one another.

This is supposed to be a news article. But it really is an editorial that is trying to prove that this lawsuit vote is just the latest in a series of unprecedented actions against Obama.

Obama: Stop Just Hatin’ All The Time (Accept Me As King)

From Reuters:

Obama to Republicans: ‘Stop just hatin’ all the time’

By Roberta Rampton and David Lawder | July 30, 2014

KANSAS CITY Mo./WASHINGTON (Reuters) – President Barack Obama took his criticism of congressional Republicans to a higher pitch on Wednesday, imploring them to "stop just hatin’ all the time" as they voted to sue him over charges he has overstepped the bounds of his office.

We have noted before that Obama and Holder are trying to criminalize any and all criticism of the administration or Obama, by trying to turn it into ‘hate speech’ or ‘racism.’

In a party-line, 225-201 vote, the House of Representatives authorized the Republican-drafted lawsuit, which will focus on unilateral changes Obama has made to the Affordable Care Act, his signature health care law.

NSF Spending $202K To Find Out Why Wikipedia Is Sexist

From the Washington Free Beacon:

Government-Funded Study: Why Is Wikipedia Sexist?

$202,000 to address ‘gender bias’ in world’s biggest online encyclopedia

By Elizabeth Harrington | July 30, 2014

The National Science Foundation (NSF) is spending over $200,000 to find out why Wikipedia is sexist.

The National Science Foundation? The same people who wasted untold millions of  taxpayer dollars us studies of duck penises and ‘shrimp on treadmills’ and a thousand other boondoggles we will never hear about?

The government has awarded two grants for collaborative research to professors at Yale University and New York University to study what the researchers describe as “systematic gender bias” in the online encyclopedia…

“[A]n emerging body of research indicates that Wikipedia suffers from systematic gender bias with respect to both contributors and content,” it continues.

GOP Has Lost Control Of Impeachment Plot They Hatched

From the DNC’s lickspittle minions at the Atlantic:

Republicans Have Lost Control of the Impeachment Plot They Hatched

By Arit John | July 29, 2014

The impeachment debate is another example of fringe conservative ideology hurting the establishment’s election chances.

Mind you, this is a news article. Not an editorial. (As if there is any difference these days.) But who knew conservatives were running the Republican Party?

House Speaker John Boehner knows that, which is why he said Tuesday that impeachment is a "scam" created by Democrats to motivate their base to vote and donate ahead of the midterm elections, according to the Associated Press. That’s half true. Democrats are fundraising off impeachment, but this conversation was started by Sarah Palin and her fans.

Again, we didn’t realize that Sarah Palin was so powerful in the leadership of the Republican Party.

Senate O-Care Bill Limited Exchange Subsidies To States

From Breitbart:

The Senate HELP Bill Limited Exchange Subsidies to Compliant States (but No One Mentioned It)

By John Sexton | July 29, 2014

… The Halbig case is the one about whether or not tax subsidies can be delivered to people who enrolled on a federal exchange…

One [of the Senate's] version[s] of health reform [is] known as the HELP bill (because is came out of the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor & Pensions). The HELP bill is significant because it explicitly denied subsidies to states which refuse to set up a federally compliant exchange.

More specifically, the bill outlines a three step process for states. They can a) agree to set up their own exchange and comply with all the new regulations, b) ask HHS to set one up and comply or c) not comply.

Mom Of Drug Dealing, Rock-Throwing Mexican Sues BP

From Reuters:

Mother of slain Mexican teen sues U.S. Border Patrol agents

By David Schwartz | July 29, 2014

PHOENIX (Reuters) – Lawyers for the mother of a Mexican teenager fatally shot by U.S. border police filed a U.S. federal civil rights lawsuit on Tuesday, calling the killing "brazen and lawless" and the latest example of agents using excessive force.

So why would any Mexican or Central American think they could flee violence by coming to the lawless US? We should be all heading the other way.

The lawsuit says unnamed U.S. Border Patrol agents violated the constitutional rights of Jose Antonio Elena Rodriguez, who was 16 years old when he died in the cross-border shooting from Arizona into Nogales, Mexico, in October 2012. An autopsy by Mexican authorities found the teen was shot seven times from behind.
