CRS: Amnestied Illegal Families Could Get $35K From IRS

From Breitbart:

Amnesty Beneficiaries Could Claim More Than $35K In Tax Benefits In First Year

By Caroline May | February 25, 2015

Illegal immigrants who are able to obtain Social Security Numbers and work permits as a result of President Obama’s executive amnesty could claim tens of thousands of dollars in back tax benefits, a new Congressional Research Service memo obtained first by Breitbart News reveals.

The report comes following the Internal Revenue Service’s confirmation that once illegal immigrants are granted Social Security Numbers — as a result of Obama’s executive actions — they will be able to file back tax returns and obtain up to four years of tax benefits, including the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) and the Child Tax Credit (CTC).

And these illegal aliens will get these ‘tax benefits’ even if they paid in nothing in taxes.

Obama Threatens ICE Who Don’t Obey His Illegal Amnesty

First via Weasel Zippers:

Obama Threatens ICE Agents Who Don’t Enforce Executive Amnesty: “If They Do Not Fellow The Policy, There’s Consequences”…

[During a ‘townhall meeting’ with Mr. Obama yesterday, the Telemundo host José Díaz-Balart asked Obama the following question:]

BALART: “How do you ensure that I.C.E. And border patrol won’t be deporting people like this. What are the consequences?”

OBAMA: “The bottom line is that if somebody’s working for I.C.E., and there’s a policy, and they don’t follow the policy, there are going to be consequences to it. So I can’t speak to a specific problem. What I can talk about is what’s true in the government generally. In the U.S. Military when you get an order, you’re expected to follow it. It doesn’t mean that everybody follows the order.

1,400 Security Badges Lost, Stolen From 1 Airport In 2 Yrs

From the NBC Dallas/Ft.Worth affiliate, KXAS:

NBC 5 Investigation Finds Hundreds of Airport Security Badges Missing

TSA blocks access to missing badge records after NBC 5 Investigates’ request

By Scott Friedman | February 24, 2015

An exclusive NBC 5 investigation found hundreds and perhaps even thousands of airport security badges, known as Secure Identification Display Area (SIDA) badges, are unaccounted for across the country.

Has DHS been shutdown already?

NBC 5 Investigates requested records from some of the nation’s largest airports asking how many SIDA badges are unaccounted for. Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport sent a response saying more than 1,400 badges were lost or stolen over approximately two years…

Mind you, that’s the number from just one airport in just two years.

Before NBC 5 Investigates could get missing ID badge information from other airports, like Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport, the Transportation Security Administration stepped in and said we couldn’t have those numbers.

Kerry Questions Netanyahu’s Judgment About Iran Deal

From the Associated Press:

Secretary of State John Kerry called into question the Israeli prime minister’s policy judgement citing Netanyahu’s support for the Bush led invasion of Iraq.

February 26, 2015

WASHINGTON AP – Secretary of State John Kerry says Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu might be wrong about his opposition to negotiating a deal with Iran to curb its nuclear program. Kerry told the House Foreign Affairs Committee Wednesday he didn’t want to comment on Netanyahu’s upcoming speech to Congress next week…

And yet he did.

Kerry answered Rep. Gerald Connelly’s line of questioning asking for Kerry to comment on Netanyahu’s criticism of a potential deal with Iran by questioning Netanyahu’s judgement on past issues.  "Let me say this. The prime minister, as you recall, was profoundly forward leaning and outspoken about the importance of invading Iraq under George W.

Kerry: The US And World Are Safer From Threats Than Ever

Via The Right Scoop:

KERRY: What are you guys worried about? The world is safer than ever! Go back to watching Netflix

February 25, 2015

John Kerry made this unbelievable comment in a hearing today on Capitol Hill:

"Our citizens, our world today is actually, despite ISIL, despite the visible killings that you see and how horrific they are, we are actually living in a period of less daily threat to Americans and to people in the world than normally, less deaths, less violent deaths today than through the last century."

Has there ever been an administration filled with so much willful ignorance and incompetence?

NYT: Three ‘Brooklyn Men’ Accused Of Plotting To Help ISIS

From the New York Times:

3 Brooklyn Men Accused of Plot to Aid ISIS’ Fight

By MARC SANTORA and STEPHANIE CLIFFORD | February 25, 2015

Two young men living in Brooklyn were arrested on Wednesday and charged with plotting to travel thousands of miles to fight under the banner of the Islamic State, the terrorist organization that has seized a wide expanse of Syria and Iraq. A third Brooklyn man was charged with helping organize and fund their activities…

And by "Brooklyn men" the NYT means Muslims from foreign counties who happen to be living in Brooklyn. Including one who is here illegally. (And you have to wonder why the other two were given legal residence.)

One of the men who allegedly sought to fight for the Islamic State, Abdurasul Hasanovich Juraboev, 24, worked in a gyro shop.

‘Jihadi John’ Not Poor, Uneducated Or Lacking Opportunity

From an unfazed Washington Post:

‘Jihadi John’: The Islamic State killer behind the mask is a young Londoner

By Souad Mekhennet and Adam Goldman | February 26, 2015

LONDON — The world knows him as “Jihadi John,” the masked man with a British accent who has beheaded several hostages held by the Islamic State and who taunts audiences in videos circulated widely online.

But his real name, according to friends and others familiar with his case, is Mohammed Emwazi, a Briton from a well-to-do family who grew up in West London and graduated from college with a degree in computer programming…

“I have no doubt that Mohammed is Jihadi John,” said one of Emwazi’s close friends who identified him in an interview with The Washington Post.

ISIS Destroy Museum Artifacts In Mosul And Burn Library

From the International Business Times:

Iraq: Isis take sledgehammers to priceless Assyrian artefacts at Mosul museum

By Gianluca Mezzofiore, Arij Limam, Sabine Schwab | February 26, 2015

The Islamic State (Isis) has published a video showing militants destroying ancient artefacts in a Mosul museum with sledgehammer and pickaxes. IS fighters are seen unveiling old statues in the Ninawa museum dating back to the Assyrian empire and then dragging them down to the ground, where they fall into pieces.

Then, they are depicted pounding 3,000-year-old sculptures with hammers until they are completely shattered. Tens of militants are seen using ladders, hammers and drills to destroy every statue in the museum, including a winged-bull Assyrian protective deity dating back to the 9th century BC.

"These ruins that are behind me, they are idols and statues that people in the past used to worship instead of Allah," an IS militant says at some point, with an immense horse-like figure in the background.

FCC Chair Refuses To Testify Before Congress Before Vote

From National Review:

FCC Chair Refuses to Testify before Congress ahead of Net Neutrality Vote

By Andrew Johnson | February 25, 2015

Two prominent House committee chairs are “deeply disappointed” in Federal Communications Commission chairman Tom Wheeler for refusing to testify before Congress as “the future of the Internet is at stake.”

Is their disappointment deep enough for them to send the House Sergeant of Arms and the Capitol Police over to his offices to bring him in?

Wheeler’s refusal to go before the House Oversight Committee on Wednesday comes on the eve of the FCC’s vote on new Internet regulations pertaining to net neutrality.

One of the most Orwellian terms since the ‘Affordable Care Act.’

The committee’s chairman, Representative Jason Chaffetz (R., Utah), and Energy and Commerce Committee chairman Fred Upton (R., Mich.) criticized Wheeler and the administration for lacking transparency on the issue.

43% Of Portland’s ‘Chronic Homeless’ Have $20K In Bank

From Oregon’s Portland Press-Herald:

Some long-term users of Portland shelters had at least $20,000 in bank, audit finds

By Randy Billings | February 23, 2015

More than one-third of the 30 people who stayed the longest at two city-run homeless shelters each had at least $20,000 in bank accounts, according to a state audit of Portland’s General Assistance program.

And how many of them were receiving numerous government benefits?

Among those 13 people, the person who had stayed at city shelters the longest had nearly $92,500 in his accounts, while another was reported to have as much as $161,000 in liquid assets, the state says…

Meanwhile, what does the average working stiff have in the savings and liquid assets?

The audit done by Department of Health and Human Services examiners concluded that the city “is in violation of a number of statutory and regulatory requirements, including but not limited to improper eligibility determination and reimbursement practices…"

Since 1989, the city has been providing GA [General Assistance] to people who stay at a homeless shelter without having them fill out a form to determine financial eligibility…

Gee, that’s sort of like the way Obama-Care has been giving out subsidies based on the ‘honor system.’

In any case, it’s in the Portland city father’s interests to let as many people stay in the shelters as possible.

NIH Spent $221K On Gender Affirmation For Jailed Trannies

From the Washington Free Beacon:

Feds Spend $226,364 on ‘Gender Affirmation’ for Jailed Transwomen

By Elizabeth Harrington | February 25, 2015

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) is spending over $200,000 on a study involving “gender affirmation” and incarcerated transwomen in San Francisco.

Lest we forget, this is the same NIH that just a few months ago claimed they didn’t have enough money to do the research to develop an Ebola vaccine. (For which they falsely blamed the Republicans.)

Claiming that incarceration “disproportionally impacts” transwomen—individuals born as males but who self-identify as women—the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) is studying how to bring “culturally relevant” interventions to this demographic. The interventions will focus on HIV, substance abuse, mental health, and “transgender-related medical care.”

“Incarceration is a significant public health issue [sic[ that disproportionately impacts transgender women, and the cycle of incarceration interacts with high levels of substance use, mental illness, and HIV to produce an elevated burden of disease among this population,” a grant for the project states.

Poll: Only 47% Of Americans Believe Obama Loves The US

From YouGov:

Many young people don’t love America

By Peter Moore | February 24, 2015

Only 71% of under-30s say they ‘love America’ compared to 93% of over-65s – but Americans tend to think Obama loves the country.

Really? When you dig down into the details of this poll you find that only 47% say Obama loves America. Which would indicate that most Americans don’t believe he loves the country.

Last week former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani claimed that President Obama "doesn’t love America" at a fundraiser for potential Republican Presidential candidate Scott Walker…

YouGov’s latest research shows that Americans do tend to think that Barack Obama does, in fact, love America. 47% say that the president loves America, while 35% agree with Rudy Giuliani that the president does not.

Bratton: Police To Blame For ‘Worst Parts’ Of Black History

From the Huffington Post:

Bratton Says Police To Blame For ‘Worst Parts’ Of Black History, But Reform Advocates Are Unimpressed

By Christopher Matthias | February 24, 2015

New York City Police Commissioner William Bratton acknowledged on Tuesday that police were to blame for "many of the worst parts of black history" in the United States.

Huh? All police do is enforce the laws. — Including the law against selling ‘loosies.’

Yet advocates for police reform say the comments are merely lip service from an official who continues to reinforce the city’s racial tensions.

Proving yet again, that there is no pleasing some people.

Bratton gave a speech Tuesday morning to a predominantly African-American crowd during a Black History Month breakfast at the Greater Allen AME Church in Queens.

AP: Hate Crime Law Hampered Prosecution Of Zimmerman

From the Associated Press:

Without hate crime, US limited in prosecuting Zimmerman

February 25, 2015

MIAMI — The Justice Department’s decision to not prosecute a civilian neighborhood watch volunteer for a hate crime in the shooting death of an unarmed black teenager is not necessarily a harbinger of how it will rule in two other high-profile deaths of unarmed black men at the hands of police officers, legal experts say.

So don’t give up hope. The DOJ might still be able to lynch some innocent people simply because of the color of their skin.

That is because the standards used to gauge the existence of a hate crime committed by civilians are different from those used to measure the behavior of police officers, who can be charged with depriving someone of their civil rights by using excessive force in the course of duty.

NCRI: Iran Operating Top Secret Parallel Nuclear Program

First we have this from an unquestioning Associated Press:

Kerry defends Iran negotiations before Congress

By DEB RIECHMANN and MATTHEW LEE | February 24, 2015

WASHINGTON (AP) — Secretary of State John Kerry told wary lawmakers on Tuesday that it was premature to criticize nuclear negotiations with Iran before any deal can be reached to keep Tehran from developing atomic weapons.

"The president has made clear — I can’t state this more firmly — the policy is Iran will not get a nuclear weapon," Kerry told members of a Senate Appropriations subcommittee.

Excellent. We have nothing more to worry about then, if Mr. Obama says so. After all, we still have the health insurance plans and doctors we liked. And we also know that Obama will never issue any un-Constitution executive orders on amnesty, because he said he couldn’t.
