Massachusetts Grandmother Killed In Her Sleep By Obama Dreamers

Killed In Her Sleep: Illegal Immigrants Suspected In Mass. Grandma’s Death Faced Deportation – Fox News

A Massachusetts woman killed as she slept in her bed by a bullet fired through her ceiling would be alive today, if the men accused of shooting her had been deported, according to anti-illegal immigration activists.

.

Mirta Rivera, 41, a nurse and grandmother from Lawrence, was shot July 4 from an upstairs apartment where two illegal immigrants lived despite being under federal deportation orders, according to the Boston Herald. Dominican Republic nationals Wilton Lara-Calmona and Jose M. Lara-Mejia both had long histories of sneaking into the U.S.

The case, as well as a pending murder case in neighboring Connecticut involving an illegal immigrant accused in the stabbing death of a woman, comes after the July 1 murder of Kathryn Steinle in San Francisco helped propel illegal immigrant crime into a hot-button national issue.

“This has been happening all over the country for several years,” said Dan Cadman, a fellow at the Center for Immigration Studies and a retired federal immigration official. “I hope the American public is stirred up and angry about it.

“But I hope they realize there are so many more victims,” he added. “There are families all over the country that are grieving because they lost their mother, father, brother, sister, child or spouse needlessly.”

Lara-Calmona, 38, was deported in April 2012 and arrested for re-entering the country last November, the Herald reported. Lara-Mejia, 35, was nabbed crossing the border in August 2013 and ordered deported in April 2014, but apparently ignored the ruling.

The suspects and a third roommate, Christopher Paganmoux, were charged with trafficking heroin and cocaine after police investigating the shooting found drugs in their home. But the bullet hole in Lara-Mejia’s second-floor bedroom, which penetrated the ceiling above Rivera’s bed, and a Sears and Roebuck .270 bolt-action rifle that matched the bullet found in Rivera’s mattress, are expected to lead to murder charges.

In Norwich, Conn., Jean Jacques, 40, a Haitian illegal immigrant who got out of prison in January after serving 17 years for attempted murder, has been charged with stabbing Casey Chadwick, 25, to death and stuffing her in a closet last month. Jacques’ prison file was marked “Detainer: Immigration,” according to the Norwich Bulletin.

But the case seems to have sparked the same sort of finger-pointing between local, state and federal officials as was seen in the aftermath of the Steinle murder. In that case, ICE officials said they had requested that San Francisco hold Steinle’s alleged killer, Francisco Sanchez, until they could pick him up and evict him from the country. San Francisco refused, with its sheriff later saying it was only a “request,” and that he was not allowed to comply with it.

Connecticut officials say Jacques was released in January to the custody of the U.S. Department of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), but was never deported. While ICE spokesman Shawn Neudauer told the newspaper he was barred by law from discussing Jacques’ case, Connecticut last year became the first state to enact legislation that prohibited law enforcement agencies from holding people simply because federal authorities asked that they be held for deportation.

The measure was touted as a way to strengthen immigrant families and it does not extend to convicted felons such as Jacques or people with a “final order” of deportation.

Because local and state governments rarely pass comprehensive codes detailing their level of non-cooperation with the federal government on illegal immigration, and because the federal government itself has refused to enforce its own immigration laws, it is difficult to say where the blame lies, said one expert.

“We have two-tiered sanctuary policies,” said Bob Dane, spokesman for the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR). “You have it at the local level, where cities refuse to cooperate, but you also have it at the national level. The Obama administration won’t enforce the laws federally, and the local communities won’t locally.

“You could make the case that America is now a sanctuary country,” Dane said.

Thousands Of Bostonians Rally Against The Housing Of Illegal Aliens In Massachusetts (Videos)

Boston ‘Teeming With Protesters’ In Giant Rally Against Housing Illegal Immigrants In The State – The Blaze

Illegal immigration protesters descended upon historic Boston on Saturday decrying Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick’s decision to offer shelter in the state to unaccompanied minors.

.

.
While Bree Sison of WBZ-TV estimated the crowd numbering in the hundreds, Boston.com described the area in front of the State House as “teeming with protesters,” noting that rally organizer Jeff Kuhner, host of WRKO’s The Kuhner Report, put the number closer to 10,000.

Sison did note that the rally was the largest she’s ever seen on Beacon Hill:

More from Boston.com:

This week, a state official said it remained “unclear” how many unaccompanied minors crossing the nation’s southern border illegally would be coming to Massachusetts and how many could stay in the state longer. The state has offered to house up to 1,000 children at one of two secure facilities for up to four months.

“These are not children,” Kuhner added, Boston.com reported. “When you say child, the implication is 4, 5, 6 [years old]. They’re teenagers – many of them are gangbangers… If you’re 15, you’re not a child. A child is 12 and under.”

“I’ve never seen any kind of a backlash like this before on any issue ever,” Kuhner said of Patrick’s decision, Boston.com noted. “People in this state are livid. They feel betrayed by the political elite.”

Here’s a portion of what Kuhner told the crowd:

Kuhner also noted what he saw as a diverse group:

“When I see this army in front of me, and I see them black and white, Hispanic, young, old, men, women, Americans, children, adults, rich, poor, veterans – our great veterans – legal immigrants like Jeff Kuhner, that when I raised the alarm, when I called out for all of you to come, and I see so many of you here standing by me shoulder to shoulder, I can’t tell you… how honored, humbled, and touched I am.”

.

Kuhner came to the United States in the 1990s on a work visa as he worked towards a Ph.D. Still a Canadian citizen, he was issued a green card in 2006. Kuhner said he is currently in the process of becoming a naturalized citizen, Boston.com noted.

Leftist Nightmare Update: Secret Report Details Utter Failure Of MA ObamaCare Exchange

Secret Report Details Utter Failure Of Massachusetts ObamaCare Exchange – Breitbart

.

.
Everything about ObamaCare is wrapped in lies, evasions, and obfuscation. Fox Mulder and Dana Scully never had to go through this many layers of cover-up to get at the truth.

That’s true of the state exchanges as well as the federal operation. For example, the Boston Herald had to use a crowbar to pry a secret “not for public release” report out of the Massachusetts Health Connector… a report so carefully buried that even exchange board members were unaware of its existence. The Herald gives us a good idea of why this report had to be kept from the public, while a shorter, somewhat less damning – but still “blistering” – was released:

There was never any actual performance testing of the website before it went live Oct. 1 – a failure that “should have been enough to delay its launch,” said Joshua Archambault of the Pioneer Institute. “Yet the state moved forward anyway, and we have witnessed the anxiety and pain these problems have caused”;

There was no accountability for staffers for failing to perform;

The project wasn’t properly coordinated. “People that were supposed to be talking to each other weren’t,” said Bill Curtis, the chief scientist at CAST Software; and

Even early on in the project, MITRE analysts found, the site was displaying the same glitches that would later plague applicants when they tried navigating.

“To sum it all up in one word – amateurish,” Curtis said. “There’s a lot more
information, and some of it is fairly alarming. It really looks like the first report is an
executive summary. The second report really provides all the details… some of which makes you suspect they found even more things.”

So ObamaCare managed to be an epic disaster even in a state that already had RomneyCare up and running. Nobody involved with this clusterfark gave a second thought to the inconvenience, anguish, and waste of time they dumped on the public by pulling the trigger on a system that was nowhere near ready for launch – either in states like Massachusetts, or Washington D.C.

Leftist Nightmare Update: MA Obamacare Exchange Granted Federal Extension As Director Weeps

Massachusetts Obamacare Exchange Granted Federal Extension As Director Gently Weeps – Daily Caller

The Massachusetts Obamacare exchange has been awarded a three-month extension from the Obama administration to fix its broken website and get customers enrolled, exchange officials announced Thursday.

Jean Yang, head of the flailing Massachusetts Health Connector, wept at a Thursday board meeting over her staff’s demoralizing struggle to prevent residents from losing coverage in the face of a broken website and mountain of paper applications to be processed, the Boston Globe reports.

.

.
The state had requested a six-month extension from the Affordable Care Act’s requirements. Massachusetts already had an exchange-based health care system similar to Obamacare.

Staff is working on a backlog of 50,000 paper applications, exchange officials announced at the board meeting, which Yang said would take two hours each to process.

The stress left Yang in tears at the board meeting as she described her staff’s malaise.

“These people came here to lead and innovate, and instead they’re doing manual workarounds, and they are embarrassed to tell friends and family that they work for the Health Connector,” Yang cried.

“We have to work harder,” Yang concluded. “That means I need to tell the staff members they’re not doing a good enough job and I’m telling them that, even though they have been doing this tirelessly for months, and they’re exhausted.”

Getting through the 50,000 application pile-up will be vital for Massachusetts official to bring their exchange up to snuff. Through the end of January, just 8,000 individuals signed up for health coverage through the Massachusetts Health Connector, according to the Department of Health and Human Services’ (HHS) latest report Wednesday.

Massachusetts’ original target was 155,000, putting the state at only 5 percent of their goal.

Thanks to the federal extension, Massachusetts’ enrollment for Obamacare coverage will remain open for another three months, while the exchange attempts to create a functioning online exchange.

The waiver also extends deadlines for programs that would be canceled after Mar. 31, such as the state-funded insurance program Commonwealth Care. The 124,000 program participants will keep their plans through June 30, along with another 31,000 new applicants will receive temporary coverage as well, according to the Associated Press.

The Obama administration extension didn’t, however, apply to individual private plans that will expire before Mar. 31. Those customers must purchase a new, Obamacare-compliant plan before that date in order to avoid the individual mandate penalty. Exchange officials hope to offer a “fast path” to coverage for those individuals.

If RAAAAACISM is so prevalent why do Leftist tools have to make up racist incidents?

Or as Stacy McCain puts it And if real racist graffiti is a federal offense, what is fake racist graffiti? 

A supposed hate crime that made big news in Massachusetts now appears to have been a hoax — but still, perhaps, a crime:

The investigation into who spray painted a home with racist graffiti last month has turned toward the woman who lives there.
Police said on Wednesday that Andrea Brazier is now considered a “strong suspect” in the case.
Officers say they executed a search warrant on Tuesday and seized two cans of spray paint and ammunition from the home.
Brazier, who is white, and her husband Anthony Phillips, who is African American live at the home with their 13-year-old son, Isaac. Brazier initially cast suspicion on her son’s Lunenburg High School football teammates, saying he had been bullied in the past.
The school’s superintendent cancelled the football team’s final game on Thanksgiving after no one came forward to take responsibility. . . .

(Whoa! They canceled the high school football team’s last game because of a mere suspicion of racism?)

A police affidavit obtained on Wednesday indicated that Brazier had stopped cooperating with investigators and had changed her story several times. . . .
During an interview with police and an FBI agent, she told them that she wanted the investigation to be over and wanted the media to go away.

Maybe these manufactured hate crimes are just cases of, as Obama might say “You didn’t spray that graffiti, someone else made that raaaaacism happen”

 

Statist Democrats just cannot help themselves

Even as Obamacare is redefining dismal Democrats are exploring new ways to screw America up

Senate Democrats have begun a renewable energy blitz, with two bills mandating an increase in renewable use through 2025.

Sens. Tom Udall of New Mexico and Mark Udall of Colorado introduced a bill last week that would require that 25 percent of the country’s power come from renewable energy sources by 2025.

Another bill introduced by Massachusetts Democratic Sen. Ed Markey would require the country to get 25 percent of its power from renewable sources by 2025. Like the Udall bill, the Markey legislation would allow companies to purchase renewable energy credits to comply with the mandate. Companies that don’t comply would be forced to pay a fine.

Here they go again. They simply never learn. They cannot make something happen by legislating it so. IF renewable energy becomes  affordable, and practical, and reliable enough, then yes, people will buy it. That is how the market works. But legislation cannot FORCE reliability, or affordability or practicality. A law cannot force people to abandon energy sources in favor of others. Renewable energy will have to earn increased business, Democrats need to come to grips with this reality.

 

Sometimes what the media does not tell you, can be more informative than what they do tell you

I was at work today, and CNN was on one of the TVs at the bar, we put two on sports, one on the news, and I always used to put Fox on, but one of my bosses prefers CNN, so, well…. Anyway, when the news that a teachers body had been found in some woods near Danvers High School broke, I watched to see what had happened. After a few minutes, I noted to one of the costumers that the teacher had likely been stabbed, maybe beaten, or strangled to death. They asked me how I knew, since the news had not reported the likely cause of the teacher’s demise. Not knowing the political bent of this gentleman, I avoided saying why I reached such a conclusion, which is if the teacher had been shot the media would be focused solely on what kind of gun, was there a high capacity magazine involved, and could it have been an AR-15, and did stand your ground laws cause this tragedy. Instead I just said it was a gut feeling. A gut feeling that a fellow blogger, some guy named McCain shares it seems

 

Saw this headline at Memeorandum:

14-year-old student held without bail
in slaying of Danvers High teacher

The story doesn’t say how the teacher was killed, but the fact that MSNBC wasn’t running a gun-control telethon was a clue that she probably wasn’t shot to death. 

Like the headline says, you can learn a lot fro the media, if you pay attention to what they do not say.
