35 ‘Acts of Love’

Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush insisted that many of the instances of illegal immigrants coming into the U.S. were “acts of love.” Though many of the human beings who enter the U.S. illegally or overstay their legally permitted time in the U.S. are doing so to earn more resources and provide for families, many of the illegal immigrants who come into the U.S. are doing so for highly criminal reasons–a fact often left out of the discussion or otherwise barely mentioned.

Breitbart Texas has provided 35 of these other “acts of love” for our readers.

1. Mexican Cartel Assassin Confirmed 11 Kills on US Soil, Confessed to More  Jose Manuel Martinez, a Mexican cartel assassin, had at least 11 confirmed kills. He is originally from Mexico but obtained legal status in the U.S.

2. Illegal Immigrant Allegedly Tried to Kill Texas Border Agent An illegal immigrant fought with a U.S. Border Patrol agent and allegedly attempted to take the agent’s gun and kill him. The illegal immigrant allegedly attempted to choke the agent as well.

3. Previously-Deported Illegal Alien Convicted of Child Human Trafficking An illegal immigrant operated a stash house in Houston, Texas containing two children and 24 others. The victims were held hostage in the underwear, occupying locked rooms with boards over the windows. Authorities described the living conditions in the home as ‘deplorable’.”  Read more at: breitbart.com.

Campaigner in Chief Continues Fundraising Tour After Heinous Fort Hood attack

You may say what you want about president Obama, but at least he’s consistent.

“Certain tragedy was averted today as the campaigner in chief almost had not one, but two, of his precious DNC fundraisers endangered. Have no fear, citizens — President Obama was able to beat back his official obligations and pressed on to hang with his wealthy one-percenter friends!”

Chickens Come Home to Roost for Obama

By Michael Goodwin

Michael Goodwin

Today’s quiz: What do Vladimir Putin’s aggression and ObamaCare’s troubles have in common? OK, that was too easy.

It is impossible to dismiss as mere coincidence the Russian Bear’s invasion of Ukraine and the continuing mayhem of the Affordable Care Act. In their own ways, each reflects the full flowering of the policies of Barack Obama.

His chickens are coming home to roost, and what a mess they are making.

Obama’s sixth year in the White House is shaping up as his worst, and that’s saying something. He’s been in the Oval Office so long that it is obscene to blame his problems on George W. Bush, the weather or racism. Obama owns the world he made, or more accurately, the world he tried to remake. Read more at nypost.com.

Obamacare is Waging “War Against Doctors”

There have been may letters/stories like this over the last few years, and they always reinforce the horror that is Obamacare.  Unfortunately, much more is yet to come – ADB

WASHINGTON – U.S. Rep. Mo Brooks cited a letter today from a Decatur physician who wrote that the Patient Protection & Affordable Care Act was resulting in a “war against doctors.”

Brooks, R-Huntsville, read the letter from Dr. Marlin Gill, who called for the repeal of the new national healthcare program known as Obamacare. Brooks has also been a vocal opponent of the law and voted for its repeal.

“America should heed the warnings of doctors like Dr. Marlin Gill of Decatur, Alabama,” Brooks said in closing his speech. “Failure to do so risks unnecessary patient deaths while destroying the best health care system the world has ever known.”

The text of Gill’s letter

Pop Quiz: Can You Name One U.S. Senator?

Folks, we’re in trouble!

James Madison wrote that “a people who mean to be their own governor must be armed with the power that knowledge gives” yet students at American University in Washington, D.C. — the center of American political activity — can’t even name a single member of  the U.S. Senate.

Dan Joseph, a correspondent for MRCTV, interviewed students at the American University campus and asked them to answer some simple and basic questions about politics and government. Not only were the students unable to name a single U.S. senator, they didn’t even know how many senators comprise the Senate–and some of them were studying political science!

Posted by Jeremy Richards on Mar 22, 2014

I’m usually not tremendously affected by the news.  I’ve been around for a while and I’ve seen a lot of images come across my screen.  But when I saw a photo today of a little 8 year old girl smiling bravely while standing on her new prosthetic leg, my eyes welled up when I realized it was Jane Richard, the little girl who had her leg blown off while attending the Boston Marathon about a year ago.

When I was reminded that this little angel also lost her little brother that day, I was completely overcome with emotion for her and her family.  I will not mention the name of the person responsible for committing the evil act that destroyed Jane’s childhood that day, and I will not even refer to him by any of the nicknames the media uses for him.

I will, however, mention the names of the rags that featured glamor shots of him on their covers.  Rolling Stone in August of 2013.  The New York Times on May 5, 2013.  Now, any American with any sense knows that those publications are nothing but communist propaganda, and I’ve already heard all the twisted logic and justification from every degenerate from every gutter in America, so stuff it.

Tea Party Candidate First Ever to Win as Write-In

A Tea Party candidate became the first ever state senator in Pennsylvania to win as a write-in candidate on Tuesday in a special election that showed how dissatisfied voters are, even at the local level, with both organized political parties.

During the campaign, conservative Republican Scott Wagner was blistered by establishment Republicans that he accused of “orchestrating the special election in such a way to hand the seat, vacated by Mike Waugh in January,” to the establishment Republican candidate Ron Miller.  Continue reading at:  breitbart.com.

Revolt Against the Testing Tyrants

By Michelle Malkin  •  March 19, 2014

Have you had enough of the testing tyranny? Join the club. To be clear: I’m not against all standardized academic tests. My kids excel on tests. The problem is that there are too damned many of these top-down assessments, measuring who knows what, using our children as guinea pigs and cash cows.

College-bound students in Orange County, Fla., for example, now take a total of 234 standardized diagnostic, benchmark and achievement tests from kindergarten through 12th grade. Reading instructor Brian Trutschel calculated that a typical 10th-grade English class will be disrupted 65 out of 180 school days this year alone for mandatory tests required by the state and district. “It’s a huge detriment to instruction,” he told the Orlando Sentinel last month. The library at one Florida middle school is closed for a full three months out of the 10-month school year for computerized assessments. Read more:  michellemalkin.com.

That outdated concept called “Academic Freedom”

 

By Bruce McQuain

“Outdated” because it confilicts with liberalism.  Here’s a senior at Harvard’s view:

In its oft-cited Statement of Principles on Academic Freedom and Tenure, the American Association of University Professors declares that “Teachers are entitled to full freedom in research and in the publication of the results.” In principle, this policy seems sound: It would not do for academics to have their research restricted by the political whims of the moment.

Yet the liberal obsession with “academic freedom” seems a bit misplaced to me. After all, no one ever has “full freedom” in research and publication. Which research proposals receive funding and what papers are accepted for publication are always contingent on political priorities. The words used to articulate a research question can have implications for its outcome. No academic question is ever “free” from political realities. If our university community opposes racism, sexism, and heterosexism, why should we put up with research that counters our goals simply in the name of “academic freedom”?

Instead, I would like to propose a more rigorous standard: one of “academic justice.” When an academic community observes research promoting or justifying oppression, it should ensure that this research does not continue.

And what is it called when one promotes the quashing of dissenting views that they find to conflict with their ideas?

Call is “social justice” or whatever you choose, it is plain old, Brand X “oppression”.

That’s right.  Every oppresive regime in the history of our world has been intolerant of dissent and has taken action to quash it.  Here we see the same old tired argument presented by a liberal to further the cause of liberalism.  Don’t want to hear any dissenting voices, oh no.

And yet this newly trained “scholar” presents this as if it is a brand-new, brightly minted and spectacular idea. She’s a senior at Harvard and “is a joint history of science and studies of women, gender and sexuality concentrator”.

No kidding. What a surprise. There seems to be quite a concentration of potential oppressers in that particular field of study. There certainly seems to be a dearth of critical thinkers however (she probably comes from the school of “it hasn’t worked properly yet because I haven’t been in charge”).  It’s a pity she didn’t take a run-of-the-mill world history course or two to see who else in the past has shared that bright idea with her.  Past hell, there’s are entire countries which have implemented that exist now.

China, Cuba and North Korea come to mind.

Gaffe: Obama Visits Gap, Amazed by Credit Card Machine

“Oh wow, so you can sign the machine?”

On Tuesday, President Obama took Air Force One to New York to stop at the Gap in order to flog his case against income inequality. And there, Americans learned he had no idea how to use a credit card machine.

According to the White House press pool, Obama visited Gap because the company recently announced that it would voluntarily increase wages for employees. After telling employees that “the ladies will be impressed by my sense of style,” Obama then picked up a couple of sweaters for his girls, Sasha and Malia.

Upon checking out, however, the problems began. Obama took out his credit card and began handing it to the cashier, who told him that he could swipe his credit card in the automated machine. “Oh, wow,” Obama said, “so you can sign the machine?” He then said he was kidding: “They had these around the last time I shopped.”  Read more at:  truthrevolt.com.
