The US Issues Over 1.05 Million Green Cards Every Year

The US gives legal residency status to over a million legal immigrants each and every year. And yet it still isn’t enough for the Democrats — and too many Republicans.

From Breitbart:

Exclusive — USA to Issue More Green Cards Than Populations of Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina

August 2, 2015

Breitbart News has exclusively obtained text and a chart from the Senate’s Subcommittee on Immigration and the National Interest, chaired by Alabama Republican Jeff Sessions, concerning America’s ongoing policy of massive legal immigration:

The overwhelming majority of immigration to the United States is the result of our visa policies… Improved border security would have no effect on the continued arrival of these foreign workers, refugees, and permanent immigrants…

The most significant of all immigration documents issued by the U.S.

Garland, TX Shooter Got Gun From Fast & Furious Store

From one of Obama’s earliest and scandals. Of course Hillary was involved too. Since both Obama and Hillary used to falsely claim that 90% of the weapons in the hands of the Mexican cartels came from the US. (Whereas the real number is closer to 17%.) And Fast & Furious was created to make their hysteria seem true.

From the Los Angeles Times:

Assailant in Garland, Texas, attack bought gun in 2010 under Fast and Furious operation

By Richard A. Serrano | August 1, 2015

Five years before he was shot to death in the failed terrorist attack in Garland, Texas, Nadir Soofi walked into a suburban Phoenix gun shop to buy a 9-millimeter pistol. At the time, Lone Wolf Trading Co. was known among gun smugglers for selling illegal firearms.

‘Animal Psychic’ Claims Cecil The Lion Has Spoken To Her

FTA: "He apparently said he is ‘grander than before as no one can take our purity, our truth or our soul’." — Watch out, Cecil. Justice Clarence Thomas was castigated by George Takei for saying practically the same thing.

From the Daily Mail:

Animal psychic claims Cecil the lion has spoken to her and given instructions on how to deal with his death

2 August 2015

An American animal psychic claims that Cecil the Lion has spoken to her and given instructions on how to deal with his death. Cecil [has]… apparently moved self-proclaimed ‘animal communicator’ Karen Anderson to tears with his message.

Frankly, we’re a little skeptical that Cecil would choose to speak to an evil American, after having been killed by one. But maybe he is trying to stem the evilness at its source.

Obama Was Impressed With Illegal Lion Killers In Dreams

Obama’s father also proudly told Obama’s elementary school class about how the men in Kenya killed lions to prove their manhood. Naturally, he also had to drag slavery into his spiel to the kids.

From the Daily Caller:

Obama Was Impressed By Lion-Killing

By Patrick Howley | August 1, 2015 

President Obama was really impressed by lion-killing years before his administration started investigating the killing of Cecil the Lion. Obama, whose administration is assisting the Zimbabwean government in an investigation into Cecil’s killing by Minnesota dentist Walter Palmer, didn’t used to have a problem with lion-killing, according to his 1995 book “Dreams From My Father.”  Obama detailed his conversation with Masai guardsmen protecting him during a visit to Kenya. Obama explained that the guardsmen “had each killed a lion to prove their manhood.” The guardsmen engaged in illegal lion-hunting…

For the record, here is the passage in question from ‘Dreams,’ page 192:

"At night, after dinner, we spoke further with our Masai guardsmen.

Cecil The Lion Image Projected On Empire State Building

This was really just intended to be a promotion for a documentary, but they decided to try to cash in on Cecil’s sad story.

First, from CNN:

Empire State Building shines light on endangered species

By Evelyn Andrews | August 3, 2015

(CNN) Cecil the lion was among a group of endangered species honored on a canvas 1,250 feet tall on the Empire State Building.

And never mind that lions are not an endangered species.

The Empire State Building’s famous light displays were used to draw attention endangered wildlife. Along with Cecil, whose death has sparked international outrage, a snow leopard, tigers, lemurs, and various snakes, birds and sea creatures were projected onto the building. The spectacle was staged to promote the documentary "Racing Extinction," a production of the Oceanic Preservation Society.

Manhunt Continues For The Suspect In Tenn Cop Killing

The AP exhibits uncharacteristic restraint from mentioning the race of those involved anywhere in their long article. Why is that?

From a suddenly color-blind Associated Press:

Manhunt continues for suspect in officer’s fatal shooting

By ADRIAN SAINZ | August 3, 2015

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — A manhunt was underway Monday for a suspect in the fatal shooting of a Memphis police officer during a drug deal. Tremaine Wilbourn, 29, faces a first-degree murder charge in the death of Officer Sean Bolton, 33, Memphis Police Director Toney Armstrong said at a Sunday news conference…

The AP never once mentions race anywhere in their long article. Even though the suspect is still at large and being actively sought. For the record, Mr. Wilbourne is black, the dead police officer was white.



FBI Can’t Find Cyber Employees; Feds Embed With BDP

Maybe if the FBI prioritized their resources they would have the money and manpower to take on one of their top priorities. But they are too busy policing the police.

First, via Reuters:

FBI understaffed to tackle cyber threats

By Lindsay Dunsmuir | July 31, 2015

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The FBI is struggling to attract computer scientists to its cybersecurity program mainly due to low pay, a report by the U.S. Department of Justice showed, highlighting weaknesses in a flagship initiative to tackle growing cyber threats.

As of January 2015, The Federal Bureau of Investigation had only hired 52 of the 134 computer scientists it was authorized to employ under the Justice Department’s Next Generation Cyber Initiative launched in 2012, the report showed. Although cyber task forces have been set up at all 56 FBI field offices, five of them did not have a computer scientist assigned to them, the report by the Office of the Inspector General found.

WH Will (Won’t) Retaliate Against China For OPM Hacks

If you actually read past The Times’ headline it sure sounds like the White House won’t retaliate against China after all.

From the New York Times:

U.S. Decides to Retaliate Against China’s Hacking

By DAVID E. SANGER | July 31, 2015

The Obama administration has determined that it must retaliate against China for the theft of the personal information of more than 20 million Americans from the databases of the Office of Personnel Management, but it is still struggling to decide what it can do without prompting an escalating cyberconflict.

So they will probably end up doing nothing. Except maybe to maybe write a stiff letter to the New York Times.

The decision came after the administration concluded that the hacking attack was so vast in scope and ambition that the usual practices for dealing with traditional espionage cases did not apply.

Iran Cuts Welfare Rolls – Due To Sanctions, Low Oil Prices

But we’re constantly told by the Obama administration that the sanctions aren’t working.

From an unquestioning Associated Press:

Iran cuts welfare rolls to ease budget crisis

August 2, 2015   

TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — Iran said Sunday it will stop giving cash handouts to another million of its wealthiest citizens in order to ease a budget crisis caused in part by plunging oil prices and sanctions linked to its disputed nuclear program…

One million people have already been removed from the rolls, and those and the latest cuts are expected to save the government an estimated $30 million a month.

Money that can better be spent on more centrifuges and more terrorism.

The government has been distributing about $15 a month to the vast majority of Iranians since 2010 as compensation for cuts in food and energy subsidies.

Khamenei Publishes Book On His Plan To Destroy Israel

This book sounds like it has a lot of the ‘Mein Kampf’ feel to it. But that’s probably nitpicking.

From the New York Post:

Iran publishes book on how to outwit US and destroy Israel

By Amir Taheri | August 1, 2015

… Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has published a new book called “Palestine,” a 416-page screed against the Jewish state. A blurb on the back cover credits Khamenei as “The flagbearer of Jihad to liberate Jerusalem.” … Obama administration officials likely hope that no American even hears about it.

Khamenei makes his position clear from the start: Israel has no right to exist as a state. He uses three words. One is “nabudi” which means “annihilation.” The other is “imha” which means “fading out,” and, finally, there is “zaval” meaning “effacement.”

Khamenei claims that his strategy for the destruction of Israel is… based on “well-established Islamic principles.” One such principle is that a land that falls under Muslim rule, even briefly, can never again be ceded to non-Muslims.

DNC Head Can’t Cite Difference Between Dems, Socialism

It’s instructive when even the head of the DNC can’t distinguish between the Democrat Party and socialism.

From Mediaite:

Things Get Awkward When Matthews Asks DNC Head About Bernie Sanders, Socialism

By Josh Feldman | July 30, 2015

Chris Matthews chatted with DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman-Schultz tonight and things got awkward fast when they dived into talking about Bernie Sanders.

Matthews asked Wasserman-Schultz if, even if he loses, Sanders would have a place at the DNC convention, seeing as how he’s really popular with the base and could fire up a Democratic audience before the election.

She said he should get to speak, but Matthews kept prodding away to see if he would be allowed to speak in primetime instead of “when nobody’s watching.”

Is Matthew rooting for Bernie Sanders?



CO PP Clinic Failed To Report 13 Year Old’s Sexual Abuse

And here we thought Planned Parenthood was about protecting women.

From the Washington Times:

Colorado abortion clinic staff failed to report 13-year-old’s sexual abuse

Young woman molested by stepfather, who brought her to clinic

By Valerie Richardson | July 29, 2015

DENVER | Planned Parenthood Rocky Mountains was hit with a complaint Wednesday for performing an abortion on a 13-year-old girl without reporting possible sexual abuse against the underage girl and returning her to the man who abused her.

Planned Parenthood Rocky Mountains was also the ‘clinic’ which is featured in the fourth and latest video expose.

The conservative Alliance Defending Freedom filed a complaint with the Colorado Department of Regulatory Affairs against the Planned Parenthood affiliate on behalf of the pro-life Colorado Family Action.

Planned Parenthood Changes Its Story On Website ‘Hack’

It sure looks like the Planned Parenthood website wasn’t really hacked. But if they will lie selling baby parts for profit, what won’t they lie about?

From the Washington Examiner:

Planned Parenthood changes story on website ‘hack’

By Barbara Boland | July 30, 2015

Planned Parenthood proclaimed on Thursday that its websites were "not available because of an extremist attack," but seemed to change its story throughout the day after many people pointed to inconsistencies about the alleged hack. At around noon, the message on the group’s homepage was changed to read that "our normal site is currently undergoing maintenance."

At the start of the day, Planned Parenthood claimed it was the victim of a cyberattack. "200,000 people a day are now being blocked from information and care by the attack," the first iteration on the site said.

Hillary’s Weakness? People Don’t Get Why She Is Great

Plus more on the Hillary camp’s concerns about Biden entering the race. Maybe because Biden beats Jeb in polls, where Hillary doesn’t.

But first there’s this from the Washington Free Beacon:

Hillary Clinton: My Greatest Weakness Is Stupid People Who Don’t Understand Why I Should Be President

By Andrew Stiles | July 30, 2015

Hillary Clinton’s greatest strength, the candidate explained in an interview with the morning newsletter The Skimm, is her “passionate commitment to helping people.” The passion was on display in 2009, for example, when Clinton personally intervened to help Swiss bank UBS settle a lawsuit with the IRS and thus protect the identities of tens of thousands of Americans who may or may be evading U.S. taxes through Swiss bank accounts.

Clinton was also asked about her greatest weakness.
