    ‘He started talking about the DREAM Act and all of that stuff in 2012,’ the veterinarian said, ‘and here they come.’

    Burgard showed MailOnline a brief interview with an illegal immigrant, an 18-ish young man from Tequila, Mexico who said he had paid a coyote $5,700 for safe passage to the U.S.

    Asked if Obama is communicating to people south of the border ‘that it is possible to find work in the United States,’ he chewed his gum and replied, ‘Uh-huh.’

    Burgard also claimed transnational drug traffickers ‘are taking big time advantage’ of Obama’s 2012 mini-amnesty. ‘They have been planning for this for the last two years.’

    ‘How many precious lives must be needlessly lost, women raped, girls forced into sex trafficking or people trapped into the drug trade before the Obama administration stops luring them here with continued grants of amnesty, legal status, work permits, and benefits?’ asked Rep. Louie Gohmert.

    ‘Democrats don’t care that Obama’s rhetoric is getting people killed,’ Rep. Steve Stockman added.

    ‘They come here specifically because they believe Obama will give them amnesty. Democrats are willing to let illegals risk their lives just so Democrats can have a wedge issue to agitate their liberal base before an election.’

    Time to arrest Obama and his minions under the RICO act for the organized crime of manslaughter, premeditated, one count for each body found.

    Meanwhile, the Obama/Kerry 3 day cease fire in the Middle East didn’t even last for 2 hours:

    It was the start of a three-day truce, the best hope yet to end a 25-day-old war that has taken an enormous toll on both Palestinians and Israelis.

    On Friday morning, Israeli troops were in the southern Gaza Strip preparing to destroy a Hamas tunnel, said Israeli military officials. Suddenly, Palestinian militants emerged from a shaft. They included a suicide bomber, who detonated his explosive device. In the chaos, two Israeli soldiers were killed. The militants grabbed 2nd Lt. Hadar Goldin, 23, and pushed him back through the tunnel, according to the Israeli account.

    Within minutes, the war was back.

    “The cease-fire is over,” declared Lt. Col. Peter Lerner, a senior spokesman for the Israel Defense Forces. Ground operations will continue, he said, “and our aircraft are in the sky as we speak.”

    ACTIVISTS SAY TRANSGENDER (WO)MAN RAPED AT ARIZONA IMMIGRANT CENTER

    Putting aside that it’s probably just a ploy to get released…

    http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2014/08/01/Activists-say-transgender-woman-raped-at-Arizona-immigrant-center

    His legal name is Jesus Leal Gamino. Here illegally, he has been detained for more than a year.

    Now, thanks to this alleged ‘rape’, “We see no other solution than for ICE to immediately release her, where her community can take measures to … help her heal,” said Francisco Luna, a spokesman for Arcoiris Liberation Team, one of the groups calling for the woman’s release.

    I got a better idea. Send HIM back to his country of origin.

    I wonder if “Francisco Luna” is a confused woman who thinks he’s a man, or if he’s just some horny guy, anxious to get a piece of 23-year-old “Marichuy”.

    Wow, what will the insane moonbats at the U.N. think of next?

    http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Peace/2014/07/31/UN-Condemns-Israel-s-Latest-War-Crime-Not-Sharing-Iron-Dome-with-Hamas

    UN CONDEMNS ISRAEL’S LATEST WAR CRIME: NOT SHARING IRON DOME WITH HAMAS

    Because the U.N. believes Hamas has a right to protect their terror weapons from destruction, which is why they keep turning up in U.N. facilities.

    Among the UN’s long bill of particulars against the beleaguered Jewish state comes the almost unbelievable accusation that Israel’s refusal to share its Iron Dome ballistic missile defense shield with the “governing authority” of Gaza – i.e. Hamas, the terror group created to pursue the extermination of the Jewish state and now waging a terrorist war against it – constitutes a war crime.

    The UN’s Human Rights Council has long been a source of deep embarrassment to some UN supporters all-too-conscious that the council is widely regarded as a cesspool of anti-Israel and anti-Jewish hatred, manipulated by the world’s very worst human rights abusers to cover up their own gross abuses of human rights by scapegoating Israel.
    Current members of the UN Human Rights Council include China, Russia, Cuba, and Saudi Arabia. Iran and North Korea have been recent active members of the body. So execrable were the actions and abuses of the UNHRC in the past that the body was in fact disbanded in 2006 after the late terrorist leader of Libya Muammar Gaddafi was elected President of the Council.
    While Israel is the only country in the world that remains a standing agenda item at every session, the human rights body has to date said nothing about the recent Russian-backed shooting down of Malaysian Airlines Flight 17 over Ukraine, nor has it condemned the ongoing mass killings in Syria or South Sudan. North Korea, China, Pakistan, Syria, Sudan, or Iran, all recent or current members of the council, have never been condemned by it.
    The UNHRC has never formally mentioned “Hamas” by name, let alone condemned it.

    Why do we still bother to fund the farce that is the U.N.? Can’t we think of better things to do with the money?

    11.4 million Americans age 16 and over have left the workforce since President Obama took office in January 2009, according to data released today from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS).

    In July 2014, there were 92,001,000 Americans, 16 and over, who were classified as “not in the labor force,” meaning they not only did not have a job, but they didn’t actively seek one in the last four weeks.

    GLOBAL WARMING PREDICTION:

    More, and more powerful, hurricanes.

    REALITY:

    In 1933, Richard Gray, a U.S. government weather forecaster, noted that Florida had been hit by at least 37 hurricanes over the 45 years ending in 1930. During this period, the longest stretch with no tropical storms was only two years.

    When the 2014 hurricane season officially began on June 1, the Sunshine State had gone more than eight years without being struck by a hurricane. It was back on Oct. 24, 2005, when Hurricane Wilma emerged from the Gulf of Mexico and caused billions of dollars in damage in South Florida. In fact, Wilma was the last Category 3 or stronger storm to hit the USA.

    The 3,151 days and counting with no Florida hurricane and no major U.S. hurricane shatters the previous records for hurricane “droughts,” at least back to the turn of the previous century. In fact, from 1900 through 2013, the United States experienced adecrease in hurricane landfalls of more than 20%, and the strength of each year’s landfalling storms has also decreased by more than 20%.

    BUT WATCH:

    Moonbats will cherry pick the year 1970 and will issue a peer-reviewed report stating that they’ve proven there’s an increasing trend, because by starting the analysis in 1970, at the lowest point of 20th century hurricane activity, you get an increasing trend. At least until the current drought hit.

    But make no mistake: We can say with some certainty that there is little evidence to suggest that U.S. hurricanes have become more common or stronger. The recent report of the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change agrees: “No robust trends in annual numbers of tropical storms, hurricanes and major hurricanes counts have been identified over the past 100 years in the North Atlantic basin.”

    Arguably, we are living in a lull of hurricanes, at least in the context of the past 100 years or so.

    Argentina is not the only country that has struggled, or even failed, to pay its debt in recent years. It is hardly the only country with a severely impaired credit rating either. Alongside Argentina, Moody’s currently lists 10 other countries with a rating of Caa1 or worse. A Caa1 rating is several notches below Ba1, which still carries substantial credit risk. Based on ratings from Moody’s Investors Service, these are the 11 countries at risk of default.

    The countries with the lowest credit ratings significantly differ from one another. They span the globe, ranging from Greece and Ukraine in Europe, to Pakistan in Asia, to Ecuador, Venezuela, and Belize in the Americas.

Alongside Argentina, Moody’s currently lists 10 other countries with a rating of Caa1 or worse. A Caa1 rating is several notches below Ba1, which still carries substantial credit risk. Based on ratings from Moody’s Investors Service, these are the 11 countries at risk of default.

    The countries with the lowest credit ratings significantly differ from one another. They span the globe, ranging from Greece and Ukraine in Europe, to Pakistan in Asia, to Ecuador, Venezuela, and Belize in the Americas.

    An independent panel appointed by the Pentagon and Congress said Thursday that President Obama’s strategy for sizing the armed services is too weak for today’s global threats.

    The National Defense Panel called on the president to dump a major section of his 2014 Quadrennial Defense Review (QDR) and write a broader strategy that requires the military to fight on multiple fronts at once.

    Meanwhile:

    China has acknowledged the existence of a new intercontinental ballistic missile said to be capable of carrying multiple nuclear warheads as far as the United States, state-run media reported Friday.

    A government environmental monitoring centre in Shaanxi said on its website that a military facility in the province was developing Dongfeng-41 (DF-41) missiles, the Global Times reported.

    The DF-41 is designed to have a range of 12,000 kilometres (7,500 miles), according to a report by Jane’s Strategic Weapon Systems, putting it among the world’s longest-range missiles.
