While preparing to shoot pool with Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper, President Obama tried to justify his refusal to visit the US/Mexico border by saying that he is “not interested in photo opps.” Well here are 68 of those photo opps that he is not interested in.
This should not come as any surprise. As with every other money that the Feds offer to States or Municipalities, there are always strings attached. Yes, all your ELECTED officials know this but choose the money.
The Obama administration, in July 2013, quietly introduced a new regulation that critics say will dramatically increase Washington’s power over local zoning laws in every city and town that accepts federal block grants through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. And it’s the federal grants that could be used as a hook in the nose of these cities, forcing them to house illegal immigrants against their will.
Some are calling it the “Common Core of local zoning” that has flown under the radar for nearly a year. Instead of the U.S. Department of Education dictating education standards to local school districts, this rule change would allow HUD to influence zoning laws from the biggest cities down to the tiniest towns.

So which of our two Senators has it right?
From Sunshine State News- The two U.S. senators representing Florida looked at the immigration crisis this week and pointed the blame at the Obama administration for why it’s continuing. U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson, D-Fla., took to the Senate floor on Thursday and said the Obama administration was failing to grasp why tens of thousands illegals — including more than 52,000 children who have been caught since October — are crossing the border. Nelson called for the Obama administration to ramp up operations and aid in Latin America to assist the war on drugs.

I hate when most state that the President is an incompetent ineffective president. He is anything but that. He IS successfully transforming America. Same goes for the immigration battle-
Illegal Immigration: Texas Gov. Rick Perry states the obvious when he suggests that the flood of alien children coming to the U.S. from Latin America just might be a result of “ulterior motives” on the part of President Obama.
HOUSTON, Texas–As illegal immigrants continue to spill across the U.S. – Mexico border, federal authorities are attempting to relocate the migrants from South Texas to housing facilities in states across the nation. One such facility is located in Murrieta, California, where a large group of protesters recently blocked a bus full of migrants from arriving. The protesters remain there, adamant that illegal immigrants don’t get dumped in their town. But soon the concerned citizens may be forced to step down–Breitbart Texas has learned that federal agents plan to arrive in Murrieta on Monday with riot gear to ensure that another busload makes it to the housing facility.
Jeremy Oliver, a resident of Temecula, California–a town that neighbors Murrieta–told Breitbart Texas that local police officers warned the protesters that “it’s going to get ugly.”
Oliver said, “The feds are pissed that they haven’t been able to use this facility. Officers out there warned people that federal agents will be in Murrieta on Monday–they are going to get the next bus through no matter what. Riot gear and shields will be used to push the crowd back.” Continue reading at breitbart.com.
A government-contracted security force threatened to arrest doctors and nurses if they divulged any information about the contagion threat at a refugee camp housing illegal alien children at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas, sources say.
In spite of the threat, several former camp workers broke their confidentiality agreements and shared exclusive details with me about the dangerous conditions at the camp. They said taxpayers deserve to know about the contagious diseases and the risks the children pose to Americans. I have agreed to not to disclose their identities because they fear retaliation and prosecution. Continue reading at foxnews.com.
You can pretty much kiss goodbye any hopes that our elected officials in D.C. will shut the border and stop the influx of minors that has grown at an alarming rate this year. No one should be surprised that this is by design. As a matter of fact please read the article from our own Paula Helton (http://canadafreepress.com/index.php/article/63987 ) about this.
Now this whole thing is deemed a humanitarian crisis and as such we must welcome everyone with open arms. Heck, we have enough money to take care of the world don’t we?
This week Cornyn (R-TX) and Rubio (R-FL) introduced a resolution “expressing the sense of the Senate that President Obama should take immediate action to mitigate the humanitarian crisis along the international border between the United States and Mexico involving unaccompanied migrant children and to prevent future crises.”
GOP staffers, however, tell Breitbart News that the resolution is inadequate, as it is too weak and fails to address the idea that the the humanitarian crisis at the border is actually a crisis of “lawlessness.”
The pair’s resolution enumerates five steps they believe the president should take on the problem, including to publicly declare that Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program will not apply to the new immigrants, publicly discourage people south of the border from sending their children to the U.S., “fully” enforce U.S. immigration law, provide resources to states dealing with the influx, and improve the security at Mexico’s southern border by working with Mexican and Central American officials.

VIRGINIA, June 11, 2014- It’s been 24 hours since the polls closed in Virginia, and the political establishment was rocked in what is being called the most earth-shattering defeat in decades.
National Tea Party groups have been fast to speak out and congratulate Brat on defeating Eric Cantor (R-Va.), the GOP’s second most powerful Republican. As is often the case, when a big win is scored, those with large megaphones are always ready to speak up.
“Congratulations to Dave Brat on his huge upset. The statement from the grassroots could not be any clearer. It doesn’t matter what office you hold or how powerful you are. If you lose touch with activists on the ground, then your seat is in danger,” wrote Freedom Works’ Matthew Kibbe. “The grassroots are taking their seat back at the table and returning accountability to Washington. Votes on Capitol Hill will be heard back in the district,” he added. “We are proud to stand with Dave Brat in his election and look forward to working with him to reform Washington, D.C.” Continue reading at: benswann.com.

Fox New Hannity 6/10/2014: Dave Brat on what his shocking win means for the GOP.
(NYTimes) WASHINGTON — In one of the most stunning primary election upsets in congressional history, the House majority leader, Eric Cantor, was soundly defeated on Tuesday by a Tea Party-backed economics professor who had hammered him for being insufficiently conservative. (Post continued below video)
The result delivered a major jolt to the Republican Party — Mr. Cantor had widely been considered the top candidate to succeed Speaker John A. Boehner — and it has the potential to change both the debate in Washington on immigration and, possibly, the midterm elections.
With just over $200,000, David Brat, a professor at Randolph-Macon College in Ashland, Va., toppled Mr. Cantor, repeatedly criticizing him for being soft on immigration and contending that he supported what critics call amnesty for immigrants in the country illegally. Mr. Brat will face Jack Trammell, a Democrat who is also a professor at Randolph-Macon, this fall in the heavily Republican district. Read more at: YouHotNews.
Conservative icon Mark Levin comments on the stunning defeat of Eric Cantor in the Virginia GOP primary election. The House Majority Leader was upset by political novice David Brat. This was the first time in the history of our republic that a House Majority Leader was defeated in a primary election.
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.

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.

From Trevor Louden’s New Zeal blog:
Enslavement Of America – Best Speech Ever By Communism Escapee (Video) – Wake Up America:
At a public hearing on proposed gun control legislation, Manuel Martinez, a man who escaped Cuba in 1962 after opposing Fidel Castro and being imprisoned for it, blasts Oregon gun control lawmakers in an impassioned speech that only someone that has lived through communism and Marxism, only someone that watched innocent men, women and children murdered by their own government, only someone that fought against his whole country being enslaved by a dictator, can give.
“They come here in those dog and pony show and cry that their going to protect people. You’re going to protect nobody! I want to know what is behind it? Do you know what is behind the problem we have in this country with it’s Marxism,” Martinez said.
He continues, saying “Marxism is not coming, Marxism is here! Marxism has been in this country for quite a while now. And the politicians allow that because they are ignorant or they’re part of the plot!”
“Don’t sell me this. A very powerful man tried to sell me this 50-something years ago, I didn’t buy it, do you think I am going to buy it now after pushing 80 years?” Martinez said. “This is Marxism, plain and clear.”
“They put this dog and pony show saying hey, we are going to protect you. No, what they did was enslave a country,” Martinez said. “They destroyed a country the same way that this country is going to be destroyed if we continue in this fashion. This is what you’re selling here!” Martinez said, holding up old communist magazines from Cuba and stating “This is what you selling here!! You are not selling protection! You don’t care about if we die or live! THIS IS WHAT YOU’RE SELLING!!!
