This Is Exactly How Central Americans Illegally Cross The Mexico-Texas Border – Daily Signal

“Welcome to America,” Border Patrol agent Albert Spratte says.

As politicians in Washington debate how to best deal with the influx of illegal immigrants from Central America along the southwest border, smugglers continue to transport women, children, and entire families into the country.

The Daily Signal went on a tour of the border near McAllen, Texas, with Spratte, sergeant at arms of Union 3307 of the National Border Patrol Council, to capture raw footage of the precise location of many border crossings.

In the three videos below, Spratte breaks down the illegal immigrants’ access points, revealing how easy it remains to break into America.

.

.
Along the banks of the Rio Grande Valley, illegal immigrants navigate tall sugarcane to make it onto American shore. The path is difficult and dangerous for Border Patrol agents to access, says Spratte, and easy for smugglers to direct immigrants onto U.S. soil.

.

.
Spratte describes how smugglers transport children and families from one side of the Anzalduas Dam to the other. Once in the U.S., many of them willingly give themselves up. Within the last several months, the Border Patrol agent says, the Department of Homeland Security, or “whoever controls press access” to the U.S. side of the dam, has made it more difficult for the news media to get to that spot.

“It’s really restricted the ability of the American press to report what’s going on to the public,” Spratte said. “We believe the public has a right to know what’s going on, and it’s difficult when the press is being controlled and not allowed to go to those areas.”

.

.
In a highly visible part of Anzalduas Park in the Rio Grande Valley, Spratte describes how human smugglers use jet skis to transport men, women, and children from parkland on the Mexico side of the river to the Texas side. “We don’t have a checkpoint at the park,” he said, making it “impossible” to tell whether people arrived illegally.

Where Is Obama Really Shipping Illegal Kids? – WorldNetDaily

.

.
Eyewitnesses at dozens of points across the United States have begun working together to track down where the tens of thousands of illegal alien children from Central America are ending up, because the federal government won’t disclose many details of its handling of the immigration crisis.

The information is being presented on an interactive map published by NumbersUSA, an organization that seeks to return immigration to traditional levels.

Even top government leaders have been caught off guard.

Sen. Mark Kirk, a Republican from Illinois, said he did not know the locations of children being held in Illinois, Fox News reported.

He believes the White House does not want such information to be made public.

Nebraska Gov. Dave Heineman recently said he discovered that 200 of the children were sent to his state without warning or notice to his office.

Federal agency managers refused to give him the names and locations of the children, he said.

“We need to know who they are,” Heineman insisted. “And so far, they are saying they’re not going to give us that information.”

NumbersUSA’s map, which derives its information from members of Congress, eyewitnesses, reliable sources and news reports, shows children are being taken to many states, including Washington, Oregon, California, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, Iowa, Nebraska, Illinois, Virginia, Maryland, Connecticut, Rhode Island and Massachusetts.

NumbersUSA Executive Director Roy Beck told WND it’s clear that the Obama administration’s dispersal of the children across the nation conflicts with its promise that many will be returned to their home countries.

“[They want to keep this] as secret as possible for as long as possible,” Beck told WND.

“We’ve been told by advocates of amnesty that you can never get the people here illegally to go back home… Actually, there are ways to get them back home.”

He argued that if the government intended to return them, it “wouldn’t disperse them, because it’s harder to find them.”

The secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, Beck noted, has said “the answer has to be that nearly all these people have to be moved back to Central America.”

But the administration’s actions don’t match its words, he said.

William Gheen, president of Americans for Legal Immigration PAC, told WND that Obama’s plan to handle the flood of incoming children is “to lie to us as long as possible.”

Gheen said the nation’s existing laws, if enforced, would do a great deal to resolve some of the most critical problems. But many citizens feel the need to take immediate action, including stopping buses transporting illegal aliens, a reference to protests in Murrieta, California.

One of many places where the immigration battle is coming to a head is Prince William County, Virginia.

Board of Supervisors Chairman Corey Stewart said he’s asking county staff members to investigate how many children are being brought to Virginia and left there.

Stewart said federal officials had not informed county officials of plans to relocate some of the children to his county.

“The crisis at the border has again reached Prince William County. Without providing the county any notice, the federal government is now placing illegal immigrant children at private and perhaps federal facilities in our county,” he said in a statement at the time.

“Although no county facilities are being used to house the children, I will ask the board tomorrow to direct the county executive to attempt to find out more about the location(s) where these children are being held and whether there is anything that the board can do to stop it. While it may seem cold hearted, it is important that these children be sent back home since letting them stay simply entices even more children to attempt the long and dangerous journey to the United States.”

The crisis is being blamed on Obama’s announcement that he would bend federal law and defer prosecutions and deportations of children who have come to the U.S. illegally. That message apparently is being heard in Central America as an invitation for children to come and obtain housing, schooling, health and even legal benefits as soon as they arrive.

But experts have noted that among the illegal aliens are gang members and carriers of contagious diseases, including tuberculosis.

Officials in Central America say they want “immigration reform” in the United States to make access easier, or they’ll continue sending children illegally to the nation’s border.

A recent Reuters report quoted Jorge Ramon Hernandez, a representative of Honduran President Juan Orlando Hernandez, saying as long as immigration reform is not approved, “the exodus of children to the United States will continue.”

But regarding the flood of illegals, estimated at more than 50,000 unaccompanied children already this year and forecast for more next year, Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad simply told Washington he doesn’t want them delivered to his state.

“The first thing we need to do is secure the border. I do have empathy for these kids,” Branstad said. “But I also don’t want to send the signal that (you) send your kids to America illegally. That’s not the right message.”

National Review confirmed the secrecy surrounding the handling of the children.

“Across agency lines, officials have ignored questions from the press. ICE officials referred National Review Online’s questions on to Kenneth Wolfe, deputy director of the Office of Public Affairs in HHS’ Administration for Children and Families. Wolfe did not respond to repeated requests for an interview, but did email links to the Administration for Children and Families’ website,” the publication said of its attempts to get information.

“The Army Public Affairs office in Washington also referred Judicial Watch’s questions about Fort Bliss to Wolfe. And a spokesperson for BCFS Health and Human Services, a San Antonio-based network of non-profit organizations, declined comment to the Brownsville Herald about its plans to open a shelter for illegal immigrant children in Weslaco, referring the Herald to Wolfe as well,” the report said. “Federal officials have instructed caseworkers, who identify and verify the sponsors of the illegal immigrant children, not to speak to the media under any circumstance.”

The NumbersUSA map notes that 1,200 illegals were being held at Fort Lewis, Washington, and 1,400 at Fort Sill, Oklahoma.

Its list documents where the illegals are being housed, where more are to be placed and other details.

“NumbersUSA is daily updating this interactive map to show which communities are under threat of the federal government moving large numbers of illegal aliens there from the border,” the report said. “NumbersUSA is providing its members actions they can take to help stop the government’s dispersal of illegal aliens in a way that usually means they never go back home.”

DHS: Parents Giving Birth Control To Girls ‘In Case They’re Raped’ On Way To USA – CNS

As the Obama administration tries to warn Central American parents about the dangers of exporting their children to the United States, it appears that some of those parents already know the risks.

Some parents are giving their daughters birth control before they head to the United States — “in case they’re raped along the way,” Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson told Congress last week.

“I’ve met with enough of these kids now, including a 15-year old in Nogales (Ariz.) two weeks ago, who was three months pregnant, to have a real sense for what these kids go through,” Johnson told the Senate Appropriations Committee on July 10.

“We’ve heard about how before they leave Central America, some of these kids’ parents actually will give them birth control in case they’re raped along the way.”

.

.
Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) told the committee that he’d just received a report from an immigration advocacy group at the University of Chicago Law School describing the ordeal of two unaccompanied children:

“Samuel and Emily are siblings; amazingly, ages 3 and 6 — 3 and 6. They got here from Honduras. I don’t know how,” Durbin said.

“When they initially arrived in the United States, they were very quiet and they didn’t open up. They were clearly victims of trauma. After two months of care and custody of these 3- and 6-year-old children by HHS, Emily revealed that both children had been raped by members of a local drug cartel.

“I think about those children when I think about this debate. Are they the exception? God, I pray they are. But I’m afraid there are many more with similar stories.”

Durbin told the panel that President Obama’s $3.7 billion emergency spending request to deal with the flood of children coming to the U.S. illegally does not include enough money “to provide the kind of representation and advocacy to protect these kids.”

Committee Chair Sen. Barbara Mikulski said border agents are finding the children “dehydrated, malnourished, scared. Many have been abused. They come here relying on smugglers’ false promises, smugglers that are part of dangerous gangs and cartels who see women and children like commodities to be able to buy and sell them across the borders. Children leave home based on lies, endure dangerous journeys and the threat of being trafficked along the way.”

As of mid-June of the current fiscal year, the U.S. Border Patrol had apprehended more than 52,000 children at the U.S.-Mexico border. Approximately three-quarters of them originated from El Salvador, Guatemala or Honduras after traveling for weeks through Mexico.

Some die along the way, including a 15-year-old boy who was buried in Guatemala on Saturday.

The Associated Press reported that the decomposed body of Gilberto Francisco Ramos Juarez was discovered on June 15 in the Rio Grande Valley, just over the Texas border with Mexico. He apparently got lost on his way north and likely died from exposure in hot, dry brush country of South Texas.

“Around his neck was a rosary he had received as a gift for his first communion as a Roman Catholic. Scribbled inside his belt buckle was the phone number of an older brother in Chicago he had hoped to reach,” the report said.

At last week’s hearing, Sen. Susan Collins noted that the influx of Central American children began in 2012. “So we need to look at what happened that year,” she said.

“Well, on June 15th of 2012, President Obama took unilateral action and announced his Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals policy.

“Now let me make clear that I think the president’s action was motivated by compassion. But it seems clear to me that it sent the wrong message to those parents in Central America. And it demonstrates what happens when the president unilaterally decides to issue an executive order affecting immigration without securing the border.”

Collins noted that the number of children coming to the U.S. from Central America more than doubled between Fiscal Year 2011 and Fiscal Year 2013. “Yet until just recently, the president did not even speak out to warn their parents and to tell them that the journey would be horrendously dangerous for their children and that they would be sent home.

“We know that many of these children have been abused or harmed on their way here. And when the wave became evident two years ago, the president took no action at that time to try to stem the tide,” Collins said.

Rep. Kay Granger (R-Texas) recently traveled to Central America, where she met with the presidents and first ladies of Guatemala and Honduras. They “want their children back,” she said.

“And they’re willing to cooperate with us to send the children back as quickly as possible,” Granger told Fox & Friends on Tuesday.

“Did they indicate that President Obama had reached out to them? And if so, what did he say?” Elizabeth Hasselbeck asked Granger.

“No, they didn’t. They didn’t say anything about that,” Granger replied.

“I did ask them how helpful it would be if the president of the United States spoke out clearly and strongly and said, don’t send your children to the United States illegally, because we will send them back; they will not complete their journey. And they said that could be – could be very helpful. They did not indicate that that was happening.”

Pentagon Expands Training Of Mexican Military – Weasel Zippers

Training Mexico to secure their southern border.

Via Stars and Stripes

The United States is quietly expanding its training of Mexico’s armed forces, helping to reverse decades of mistrust that made Mexico’s military reluctant to cooperate with its northern neighbor.

The amount the Pentagon spent on training Mexico’s armed forces, though small, increased to more than $15 million last year, up from about $3 million in 2009, according to U.S. Northern Command, which oversees U.S. military contacts with Mexico.

The training comes as Mexico’s armed forces have been drawn deeper into the country’s war on drugs and organized crime.

“For decades, Mexico’s military tried to remain autonomous from the U.S. military,” said David Shirk, a fellow at the Wilson Center.

U.S. military officials are reluctant to discuss the relationship openly because of sensitivities in Mexico about appearing dependent on American help. In a statement, the Pentagon said the U.S. military participated in 150 “engagements” with Mexican troops on both sides of the border, “sharing training opportunities with more than 3,000 Mexican soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines.”

The statement said the Pentagon’s “interactions” with Mexico’s military have expanded over the past three years. Mexican government officials declined to speak on the record about the training.

The Mexican navy and marine corps have been particularly receptive, allowing the United States to expand its training with Mexico’s armed forces and build trust.

“Our security agencies have focused heavily on cooperation with the navy and marines,” said George Grayson, a professor at William and Mary who has written a book about Mexican drug cartels.

By contrast, the army is a more “insular” institution less willing to cooperate with foreign military forces, Shirk said.

“The navy has earned a tremendous amount of trust from American authorities,” Shirk said.

The army is more susceptible to corruption, since its soldiers have been deployed throughout the country in fixed locations, where there are more opportunities to be bribed. They have direct contact with drugs through eradication efforts.

Dem Governor: Let The Children Through Our Borders… Just Don’t Send Them To My State! – Independent Journal Review

.

.
Democrat Maryland Governor (and potential 2016 Presidential candidate) Martin O’Malley’s words and actions don’t line up regarding what to do with the thousands of unaccompanied illegal alien children showing up at the border.

Just last week, at a National Governors Association meeting in Nashville, O’Malley said:

“We are not a country that should turn children away and send them back to certain death… Through all of the great world religions we are told that hospitality to strangers is an essential human dignity.”

Hours later, O’Malley was singing a different tune about a proposal to convert a former Army Reserve Center into housing for the children.

“He privately said ‘please don’t send these kids to Western Maryland,’” a Democratic source told CNN. The heated discussion between O’Malley and White House domestic policy adviser Cecilia Munoz occurred during a phone call late Friday evening, sources familiar with the conversation added.

HHS has since scuttled the plan for the Western Maryland site, an O’Malley official said.

Don’t send the children back to certain death, but don’t send them to my state either. Oh, and about that “hospitality to strangers” you referenced, Governor, have you been a part of any private relief efforts that religious organizations have been organizing to help these children, regardless of their legal status? Or is that just something somebody else should do as well?

Touting hospitality to strangers and then hours later begging the government to not send the children to Maryland sounds pretty hypocritical, Governor.

What Would Campaign Ads Look Like If Politicians Were Honest? (Videos)

Hilarious Fake Campaign Videos: What Ads Would Look Like If Politicians Were Being Honest – BizPac Review

.

.
ust in time for the summer campaign season, when TV airwaves are inundated with ads touting one candidate over another, a group has produced several videos that show us what politicians would really say if they were truly being honest.

As might be expected, there are plenty of references to campaign donations.

The ads feature a faux candidate “Honest Gil” Fulbright, a very likable fellow who lays the truth out there, and he does such a good job, viewers may still be encouraged to vote for him.

Fulbright even has his own website, where he tells visitors: “I’m running for U.S. Senate in Kentucky, but I’m not going to talk to you about ‘jobs’ and the ‘middle class.’ People without jobs can’t afford to donate to my campaign. And the middle class, well, they’ll be gone soon anyway.”

The group Represent.us is behind the ads, and according to their website, they “are building a non-partisan movement to end the culture of legalized corruption that has come to define modern politics.”

Here’s “Honest Gil” in the first ad, and he doesn’t mind telling you that he’ll go by just about any name, if it keeps the flow of cash going:

.

.
The next ad, which may be the best of the three, covers the all important topic of healthcare, and as “Honest Gil” demonstrates, he could use an upgrade in his own coverage, if you’d be so kind as to elect him to office:

The third ad covers “Net Neutrality,” with ol’ Gil sharing his thoughts on those “sweet, sweet campaign donations:

Government Insanity Update: Army Deserter And Possible Traitor Bowe Bergdahl Returned To Active Duty

Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl Returns To Regular Duty – Wall Street Journal

.

.
Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl is returning to regular duty, the U.S. Army said Monday, and has been assigned to a base in Texas following his completion of a “reintegration process” after five years as a Taliban captive.

The Army didn’t specify what his duties would be, but said in an announcement that he has been assigned to Joint Base San Antonio-Fort Sam Houston, “where he can contribute to the mission.”

Military officials also said Sgt. Bergdahl remains the focus of an Army investigation that is trying to determine why he disappeared from his unit on June 30, 2009, while stationed at a U.S. outpost in eastern Afghanistan.

Some former members of his unit have publicly accused him of deserting his post. Under military law, desertion carries penalties including possible court-martial, prison time, or even the death penalty.

Sgt. Bergdahl hasn’t commented publicly on his disappearance or his recovery since returning to the U.S. on June 13. He was freed by the Taliban on May 31 as part of a controversial swap for five Taliban detainees held by the U.S.

The Army has said that there is no evidence Sgt. Bergdahl engaged in any misconduct while in captivity. He had been receiving care in San Antonio and earlier this month began making supervised trips off the military base, officials said.

Last week, Pentagon spokesman Col. Steve Warren said Sgt. Bergdahl would return to regular duty when he finished the treatment. An Army announcement Monday said Sgt. Bergdahl “has completed the final phase of the reintegration process.”

Don Isaac Abravanel synagogue in eastern Paris was targeted by the protesters. Worshippers were trapped inside during the assault.

The AP reported:

Pro-Palestinian protesters tried to force their way into a Paris synagogue Sunday with bats and chairs, then fought with security officers who blocked their way, according to police and a witness.

Recent violence in Gaza has raised emotions in France, home to Western Europe’s largest Muslim population and largest Jewish community. Sunday’s unrest by a few dozen troublemakers came at the end of sizable protest in the French capital demanding an end to Israeli strikes on Gaza and accusing Western leaders of not doing enough to stop them.

Prime Minister Manuel Valls said two Paris synagogues had been targeted by unspecified violence that he called “inadmissible.” In a statement, he said, “France will never tolerate using violent words or acts to import the Israeli-Palestinian conflict on our soil.”

A police spokeswoman said the Don Isaac Abravanel synagogue in eastern Paris was targeted during a service, and worshippers were blocked inside while police pushed protesters back. The spokeswoman said all those inside left safely by Sunday evening.

Obama-Caused Border Crisis Update: 300,000 More Illegal Alien Children On The Way

Shock, ‘En-Route’: 300,000 More Kids Already On The Way – Pat Dollard

.

.
If each one of them produces 4 kids, that’s 1.5 million new Democrat voters. Obama won last election by about 4 million.

.

.
Excerpted from WOAI: “Everyone is being screened and receiving medical care.”

The issue burst into prominent last month when Newsradio 1200 WOAI revealed to the world that a Central American child at the Lackland AFB shelter was diagnosed with Swine Flu.

Since then, young people in the shelters have been diagnosed with scabies, lice, and two more cases of H1N1 flu have been spotted in a shelter in the Rio Grande Valley.

“There are FEMA and Coast Guard doctors down there assisting,” Moran told Newsradio 1200 WOAI.

Moran said there was concern not only fro the immigrants and for the communities the immigrants are being sent to, but also for the Border Patrol agents who have to deal with the flood of immigrants.

“The numbers are still overwhelming and we are sending people everywhere just to get them processed, just due to the huge numbers,” Moran said,.

In fact, one source told Newsradio 1200 WOAI as many as 300,000 Central American immigrants are now ‘en route’ to the United States through Mexico, and the Department of Defense has asked military bases around the country to find 180 barracks, holding centers, and other facilities to house the flood which is not expected to stop coming any time soon.

Ted Cruz On Obama: “Playing Pool Is More Important Than Going To See The Humanitarian Crisis He Created” – Gateway Pundit

Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) spoke out tonight on Barack Obama refusal to secure the border or even to visit the border. The Texas conservative had this to say about the Commander in Chief.

“The cynicism of President Obama seems to know no bounds. He’s in Texas tonight. He’s going to two major fundraisers… Apparently he doesn’t have time to go and see the border. He doesn’t have time to see the children who are suffering because of his failed policies. Earlier he was playing pool. Apparently playing a game of pool is a higher priority to this president than it would be to go and see the humanitarian crisis he’s created.”

Dem. Rep. Rips Obama: ‘Aloof,’ ‘Bizarre,’ And ‘Detached’ – Weekly Standard

Democratic congressman Henry Cuellar ripped President Obama for being “aloof” and “detached” by not visiting the Texas border to see first hand the immigration crisis. Cuellar made the comments on MSNBC:

.

.
“He’s so close to the border. And let me say this: when I saw, and I hate to use the word bizarre, but under the circumstances, when he is shown playing pool in Colorado, drinking a beer, and he can’t even go 242 miles to the Texas border, and plus, if he doesn’t want to go down to the border, there’s the Air Force Base where HHS is holding some of the young kids from the border. He could at least make that trip to San Antonio, but again, border community leaders wants to see him down there on the border, and I think the optics and the substance of it is that he should show up at the border,” said Cuellar.

And he had some advice for the White House. “If they are worried about putting a face, the president’s face, to this human crisis, humanitarian crisis, I think it’s worse if he doesn’t even show up. Either way, he’s going to be tied into this humanitarian crisis. he either can roll up his sleeves and go down to the border, or he can just look aloof and detached and not go to the border, send surrogates down there, and say that he’s got everything under control.”

He adds, “It Just floored me, because if he’s saying he’s too busy to go to the border but you have time to drink beer, play pool.”

The president was in Colorado last night – drinking beer and playing pool.

Woman Eats Pet Food For A Month To Prove It’s Just As Nutritious As People Food (Videos)

Woman Eats Dog Food For A Month To Prove It Is Just As Nutritious As Human Food – Oddity Central

A pet store owner in Richland, Washington, is putting herself in her clients’ shoes (or paws, if you will) for a whole month. Dorothy Hunter has decided to eat nothing but pet food for 30 days; the challenge began on June 19 and so far, she says she’s loving it. Her goal is to prove that food for pets can be just as nutritious and delicious as human food.

“You would be surprised how tasty dog and cat food can be when it’s made right,” said Dorothy, the owner of Paw’s Natural Pet Emporium. “You really are what you eat and it’s the same for your pets. I decided to eat this food for a month just to prove how good it tastes, as well as showcase nutrition.”

The idea for the project came to Hunter rather unexpectedly – she was stocking the shelves at her store one day, when she got hungry. “I didn’t have time to go get a snack, so I grabbed a bag of treats off the counter, and I was like, wow, you know, these read better than the normal people’s treats,” she said. “So I started eating the treats and I was like, you know, I could do this for 30 days.”

.

.
She is now a few weeks into the challenge, and she’s stuck to her word, eating nothing but cat and dog food – flakes of salmon and freeze dried chicken. “I’ve also been doing our oven baked blueberry treats, as well as freeze dried green beans, carrots,” she said. “I’m even doing some canned food, one is a succulent chicken, and it actually tastes really good. So I’m really happy with that one.”

“I don’t do raw bones or meat products like that, or the frozen because I’m just not into raw.”

Throughout the month, Hunter will only be eating pet food that’s sold at her store – free of corn, wheat, soy, by-products, fillers, corn gluten, BHA, BHT, ethoxyquin and propylene glycol. Some of the brands in her store are imported from as far as Italy; everything is carefully selected for its nutritional value. “You won’t find empty food in this store,” she claimed.

“I believe in our products and how good they are that I actually believe our pets are eating better than us.” In fact, she believes in her products so much that she’s willing to feed the stuff to her family and employees. Amanda Kempf, who has worked for Hunter for about nine months, said: “My kids love the dog treats as well, and I don’t mind them eating those because they are nutritious. Everything is labeled here so you know what you’re buying, and you’re buying nutrition.”

.

.
The experiment, Hunter said, isn’t about taste – she’s trying to spread a bigger message. “Learn about what you’re eating and what you’re feeding your pets. I think if we can get the awareness out of reading the ingredients, and really understanding what is in the pet food, that will eventually carry over. If you’re feeding your pet healthy, maybe you’ll start reading the ingredients of your own foods, and maybe you can start eating healthy too.”

Ever since she started eating pet food, Dorothy has noticed a few improvements in her health. “My feet aren’t swelling as much as they usually do after I’ve been on a 10-hour day,” she said. “I have lost 2.5 pounds, which I’m not going to complain about, but I’m not doing this to promote dog food, or to lose weight. But at the same time, I want to show that I believe in our products. I know people think this is crazy, but I can’t stress enough how important it is to read labels and see what’s in the food you eat – whether it’s pet food or human food. If this month of eating pet food enlightens people to the importance of that, then I’ll be happy.”

.

.
“If I can’t eat it, I won’t sell it because animals are important to me,” Hunter insisted.

The targets included five homes of Hamas militants. Hamas’ Al-Aqsa radio reported that residents were warned before any of the houses were hit. A spokesman has put the number of injured so far at fourteen. The action comes in response to over 80 missile launches into Israel from Gaza in the last 24 hours.

IDF spokesman Lt. Col. Peter Lerner told press the potential for ground forces is real, and “several hundred” reservists have already been called up. “Protective Edge” was announced by the IDF at the end of June, saying:

Since the beginning of the year, Gaza terrorists have fired more than 450 rockets towards Israeli citizens. The attacks have sent thousands running into bomb shelters, threatening millions of Israeli lives. In order to restore quiet to the region and stop Hamas terrorism, the IDF has commenced Operation Protective Edge.

Early this morning Lt. Col. Lerner spoke extensively with CNN International about the operation and the overall situation in Israel.

Thousands Of Illegals Arriving At Border; Getting Free Bus Tickets Into U.S. (Videos)

Video Reveals Thousands Of Illegal Immigrants Arriving At Border, Getting Free Bus Tickets Into US – Independent Journal Review

.

.
What happens to the illegal immigrants caught crossing the border? That question was answered with the release of this video, captured at the Laredo, Texas, Greyhound bus station over the weekend.

Hector Garza, a Border Patrol agent and spokesperson for the National Border Patrol Council Local 2455 spoke with Breitbart News about how the federal government is handling the influx of people pouring over the border.

“The majority of these people crossed the border illegally and were then dropped off here at the bus station, so they could continue to their final destination, and that destination is an American city near you,” said Garza.

“This right here is border insecurity at its best. Our border is not patrolled, it’s not being secured… our federal government is releasing thousands and thousands of illegal aliens into our communities.”

According to Garza, the bus tickets they are issued are paid for by taxpayer money. The illegal immigrants are also issued notices to appear in court at a future date. Approximately 95% of them never return for court proceedings.

Here’s a look at what it’s like inside the station:

First-hand accounts show that this problem is more massive than perhaps the rest of the country has realized. Our federal government needs to take action – but not this. Just about anything but this.

Megyn Kelly Crushes Smarmy Obama Rump-Kisser Like A Bug (Video)

Megyn Kelly Destroys State Dept. Lackey Marie Harf On Obama Administration Hypocrisy – Gateway Pundit

Megyn Kelly destroyed State Department spokesperson Marie Harf last night on The Kelly File.

In January Obama called ISIS an al-Qaeda “jayvee team.”

.

.
Last week Obama called them a devastating terrorist group taking over Iraq.

Harf could not explain the contradiction.

This wasn’t even fair.

The same Megyn Kelly that took Dick Cheney and John Bolton to task over their Monday morning quarterbacking on the Iraq War put the Obama administration on full blast about a week back, but it’s got such tremendous legs that it’s still going strong.

Just imagine if she’d mentioned the horrendous economy, the Fast & Furious scandal, the IRS scandal, spying on journalists, the NSA’s monitoring of Americans, the Taliban 5 exchange…

But you get the idea that the Obama administration has trashed the U.S. government for five years, while most Democrats sit in a stupor, not willing to turn against the President lest they be called “racist.”

Infernal Revenue Service Cancelled Contract With Email-Storage Firm Weeks After Lerner’s Computer Crash

IRS Cancelled Contract With Email-Storage Firm Weeks After Lerner’s Computer Crash – Daily Caller

.

.
The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) cancelled its longtime relationship with an email-storage contractor just weeks after ex-IRS official Lois Lerner’s computer crashed and shortly before other IRS officials’ computers allegedly crashed.

The IRS signed a contract with Sonasoft, an email-archiving company based in San Jose, California, each year from 2005 to 2010. The company, which partners with Microsoft and counts The New York Times among its clients, claims in its company slogans that it provides “Email Archiving Done Right” and “Point-Click Recovery.” Sonasoft in 2009 tweeted, “If the IRS uses Sonasoft products to backup their servers why wouldn’t you choose them to protect your servers?”

Sonasoft was providing “automatic data processing” services for the IRS throughout the January 2009 to April 2011 period in which Lerner sent her missing emails.

But Sonasoft’s six-year business relationship with the IRS came to an abrupt end at the close of fiscal year 2011, as congressional investigators began looking into the IRS conservative targeting scandal and IRS employees’ computers started crashing left and right.

Sonasoft’s fiscal year 2011 contract with the IRS ended on August 31, 2011. Eight days later, the IRS officially closed out its relationship with Sonasoft in accordance with the federal government’s contract close-out guidelines, which require agencies to fully audit their contracts and to get back any money that wasn’t used by the contractor. Curiously, the IRS de-allocated 36 cents when it closed out its contract with Sonasoft on September 8, 2011.

Lois Lerner’s computer allegedly crashed in June 2011, just ten days after House Ways and Means Committee chairman Rep. Dave Camp first wrote a letter asking if the IRS was engaging in targeting of nonprofit groups. Two months later, Sonasoft’s contract ended and the IRS gave its email-archiving contractor the boot.

IRS official and frequent White House visitor Nikole Flax allegedly suffered her own computer crash in December 2011, three months after the IRS ended its relationship with Sonasoft.

Here’s a Sonasoft commercial re-enacting how the company quickly and thoroughly saves its clients’ emails after computer crashes:

Army Specialist Cody Full: Bergdahl Lodged False War Crimes Allegations Against His Unit Before Deserting

Soldier: Bowe Bergdahl Lodged False “War Crimes” Allegations Against His Unit Before Deserting – Weasel Zippers

.

.
Still amazed we traded this guy for the top five Taliban leaders in U.S. custody.

Via WaPo:

An Army veteran who served alongside Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl in Afghanistan said Wednesday that the long-captive soldier was deeply frustrated with the mission and had lodged false allegations that their unit had carried out atrocities.

Bergdahl “didn’t understand why we were doing more humanitarian aid drops, setting up clinics, and helping the populous instead of hunting the Taliban,” former Spec. Cody Full told lawmakers during a hearing on the exchange of Bergdahl for five Taliban detainees at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. “He wanted to hunt and kill.” [...]

Full, who was honorably discharged and served with Bergdahl in the same fire team, the military’s smallest type of organized unit, railed against Bergdahl’s attitude during his deployment in 2009 and rejected media reports that he was a sensitive young man trying to define himself during a time of war. His handwritten journal, along with essays, stories and e-mails provided to The Washington Post, painted him as a soldier full of worry about his own mental health and the situation in Afghanistan.

“Bergdahl was complaining to his parents that our platoon was committing atrocities instead of helping the local populous,” Full told members of the House Foreign Affairs Committee. “But he was telling our platoon that we needed to stop trying to win hearts and minds and focus more on killing the Taliban.”

Full also dismissed suggestions that Bergdahl’s platoon had discipline issues.

“It’s a ridiculous charge,” Full said. “Security was always in place. These acts of common sense survival did not jeopardize the security or put anyone in danger.”

Brigitte Gabriel Sets Whiny, Muslim Woman Straight During ‘Benghazi Accountability Coalition’ Event (Videos)

Brigitte Gabriel Gives Fantastic Answer To Muslim Woman Claiming All Muslims Are Portrayed Badly – Right Scoop

This Heritage event on Benghazi has gotten a lot of press over the last day or two, with the left claiming the event turned ‘ugly‘ and that the Muslim woman was ‘pounced on’ and ‘bullied’ by members of the panel.

But after watching it myself, that characterization couldn’t be more wrong. In fact Brigitte Gabriel’s answer to this Muslim woman is perhaps the best answer I’ve ever heard to the ‘peaceful Muslims’ question.

Ranking Democrat Committee Member Elijah Cummings Implicated By IRS Email As Person Directing Lois Lerner

Elijah Cummings Implicated By IRS Email As Person Directing Lois Lerner – Last Great Stand

I wish I could say I am sorry to hear Rep. Cummings appears to have some MAJOR involvement in the I.R.S. scandal. With all of his incessant pissing and moaning about claims of a partisan witch hunt, and his attempts to stonewall Darrell Issa every time he had the MIC, I hope he is at the top of the list for people to be sent to prison. Remember this incident?

.

.
At the very LEAST, he better resign (OR BE RESIGNED by Trey Gowdy) from the Benghazi Panel where the Democrats have one goal: Obstruct Justice. Needless to say he’s lost the privilege of being able to sit on that panel in my humble opinion.

.

.
True the Vote founder Catherine Engelbrecht responded Wednesday to reports that Rep. Elijah Cummings’ office may have prompted the IRS to target her group for additional scrutiny.

“Today’s committee action reveals what we knew all along. Partisan politics and the weaponization of government against opponents of this administration is real and continues,” Engelbrecht said in a statement. “Elijah Cummings has blocked the IRS abuse investigation all along. We now see clearly that two branches of government have colluded to target and silence private citizens.”

“America has come to a tipping point,” she added. “No more lies. No more cover-ups. No more collusion. Enough is enough. Finally, we have a chance for the rule of law to be re-established, thanks to the bold efforts of Chairman Issa and Rep. Jordan.”

She concluded: “We filed an ethics complaint against Rep. Cummings in February. Today we’re amending that filing to include this latest revelation. As I have said in my testimony before Congress; I will not retreat, I will not surrender, I will not be intimidated. I will not ask Rep. Cummings, Lois Lerner, Barack Obama, or anyone else, for permission to exercise my constitutional rights.”

The top Democrat on a House committee tasked with investigating the IRS scandal may have been involved in the targeting of a Texas-based conservative group, House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) said Wednesday.

Citing documents obtained last week, Issa suggested in a memo that Rep. Elijah Cummings’ (D-Md.) supposed eagerness to end the IRS investigation may be due to the fact that the Maryland congressman’s office in August 2012 communicated with the IRS about True the Vote, a non-profit group dedicated to preventing voter fraud.

“The IRS and the Oversight Minority made numerous requests for virtually identical information from True the Vote, raising concerns that the IRS improperly shared protected taxpayer information with Rep. Cummings’ staff,” the Oversight panel said in a statement on its website.

The communications between Cummings’ office and the IRS included Lois Lerner, the former IRS official at the center of the targeting scandal. However, Issa’s documents show that she didn’t get involved in the True the Vote matter until January 2013.

The documents obtained by Issa show that Cummings’ staff told the IRS it was interested in obtaining “copies of all training materials used for volunteers, affiliates, or other entities,” from True the Vote.

About five days after Cummings’ office mentioned its interest in the conservative group, True the Vote received an email from the IRS requesting “a copy of [True the Vote’s] volunteer registration form,” “…the process you use to assign volunteers,” “how you keep your volunteers in teams,” and “how your volunteers are deployed… following the training they receive by you.”

.

.
Holly Paz, the former director of the IRS exempt organizations office in Cincinnati, later sent True the Vote’s 990 forms to Cummings’ staff.

An email obtained by Issa’s office shows that Lerner at one point asked Paz of the True the Vote investigation: “Did we find anything?”

Paz responded that she had not.

“[T]hanks – check tomorrow please,” Lerner responded in an email.

True the Vote founder Catherine Engelbrecht has testified before Congress about her experiences dealing with dozens of visits and intrusive questions from the IRS and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Explosives.

Cummings has previously stated that his office never asked the IRS about True the Vote, saying at one point in February that the suggestion was “absolutely incorrect and untrue.”

“Although you have previously denied that your staff made inquiries to the IRS about conservative organization True the Vote that may have led to additional agency scrutiny, communication records between your staff and IRS officials – which you did not disclose to Majority Members or staff – indicates otherwise,” Issa said.

“As the Committee is scheduled to consider a resolution holding Ms. Lerner, a participant in responding to your communications that you failed to disclose, in contempt of Congress, you have an obligation to fully explain your staff’s undisclosed contacts with the IRS,” he added

The Maryland congressman has been sent a copy of Issa’s letter, which has been co-signed by Reps. John Mica (R-N.Y.), Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah), James Lankford (R-Texas) and Blake Ferenthold (R-Texas).

The House Oversight Committee is scheduled to meet Thursday to decide on whether Lerner should be held in contempt for her refusal to answer questions regarding the scandal. House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) said Wednesday that he would be willing to bring the matter up to the House.

Here’s a copy of the communications between Cummings and the IRS:
