Judge asks Obama administration to explain immigration protections

A federal judge in Texas wants the Obama administration to explain why 100,000 young people have been granted temporary relief from deportation, even though the government said it wasn’t taking applications for such protections.

U.S. District Judge Andrew S. Hanen, who has frozen President Barack Obama’s immigration program while a lawsuit over it proceeds, said in a ruling late Monday that he wouldn’t address the government’s attempts to restart the program until Justice Department lawyers explained the move.

CIA aided domestic phone spying

Via Joe

A Justice Department program used to gather data from U.S. cellphones apparently has a secret partner: the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA).

The CIA played a role in helping the U.S. Marshals Service develop technology that imitates cellphone towers, The Wall Street Journal reported on Tuesday. The system, used on airplanes, allows federal agents to scoop up identifying and location information for thousands of cellphones in every sweep.

The spy agency’s role in the so-called “dirtbox” program was previously unknown, and is considered unusual, given that the CIA is banned from most domestic spying operations.The collaboration between the CIA and the DOJ is likely to raise concerns from civil libertarians about spy techniques being used on U.S. soil.

Social Security Administration Confirms: Illegal Aliens To Begin Collecting Benefits In 2017

I’m old enough to remember when amnesty shills were promising that illegal aliens would become a fabulous source of tax revenue as soon as they were legalized.

We were sternly commanded to ignore all those studies showing the legalized alien population would be a staggering drain on our immense welfare state. The authors of such studies were torn to shreds for their alleged short-sightedness and xenophobia.

The amnesty shills, who spent years telling us illegal aliens were a poor and oppressed minority eking out a sparse existence from predatory employers while living miserably “in the shadows,” have recently spun on a dime and said to forget all that jive and believe their new party line that these “Americans-in-waiting” are far more productive than existing American citizens, including the chumps who waited in line for years to immigrate properly. Jeb Bush, to name a prominent example, often speaks as if he considers illegals qualitatively superior to Americans in their sense of family responsibility and work ethic, gingerly leaving the subject of their respect for the law to discuss another day.

Back here in the real world, everyone with a lick of common sense knew the amnesty critics were correct.

NC: Rockingham commissioner tables gun ordinance

 gun safety firearms

In Rockingham County, guns are a way of life.

During the Civil War, the Searcy & Moore gun factory supplied rifles to Confederate soldiers.

Firearm maker Sturm, Ruger & Co. has a plant in Mayodan and Remington is headquartered in Madison.

Hunting has long been a favorite pastime.

And in 2013, the Rockingham County Board of Commissioners passed a resolution upholding the Second Amendment.

So late last Friday, when a Facebook post leaked a draft ordinance requested by embattled Chairman Keith Mabe that restricted gun use in the county, the firestorm of controversy it set off was predictable.

By Monday morning, as the public relations fallout reached a crescendo, Mabe announced that he was tabling the ordinance. That ended the issue — but not the backlash from residents and Mabe’s fellow commissioners.

“Keith doesn’t know what kinda hornet’s nest he poked here,” one county resident posted on Facebook.

In blasting Mabe, some referenced his recent DUI charge.

Texas School Paints Over Star Spangled Mural After One Homeowner Complained

As we were told, they won't stop with just the Confederate Flag.

If it was not enough that the mere display of the United States flag hurt students’ feelings at a University of California campus, the mere likeness to the flag was cause for controversy at a Texas public school where the Red, White and Blue offended the surrounding neighborhood’s sense of aesthetics. “The developer told us that he had one homeowner complain about the colors,” said Canutillo Independent School District (ISD) spokesman Rene Leon in a CBS4 interview.

ATF shelves controversial bullet ban proposal

Via Eric

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives is shelving a proposal to ban a popular but highly lethal type of bullet, amid opposition from gun-rights advocates and hundreds of  members of Congress.

The agency said in a statement on Tuesday it would not seek to issue the final guidelines "at this time." The proposal pertained to M855 "green tip" ammunition, used in the AR-15 rifle, which regulators looked at banning because it can pierce police body armor.

The ATF said it would instead wait until Americans have finished commenting on the federal regulations and evaluate their comments and suggestions before "proceeding with any framework."
The statement follows 52 senators and 238 House members joining in opposition to any attempt the Obama administration might make to ban the ammo.

Open Carry Activist’s Tense Confrontation With Police Caught on Video: ‘I’m Talking to You, Tough Guy’

Via avordvet

A high school in Madison Heights, Michigan, was put on a brief lockdown last week after a man was spotted walking nearby with a rifle slung over his shoulder. Open carry is legal in the state of Michigan, but police in the area still responded to calls from startled school administrators and attempted to talk to the gun rights activist.

The police-involved confrontation quickly grew tense as the activist, identified as Shawn Nixon of the Hell’s Saints open carry group, refused to answer any questions and lectured officers.

“How long are you going to be out here today?” an officer asked Nixon, according to a video uploaded on YouTube.

Iran Unveils Chilling New Weapon Days After Netanyahu’s Warning

Iran has a chilling new weapon — the Soumar surface-to-surface missile.

The missile was unveiled only a few days after Netanyahu spoke about Iran’s missile program, saying that it posed a threat not just to Israel, but also eventually the U.S.

He remarked that “Iran’s Intercontinental Ballistic Missile program is not part of the deal, and so far, Iran refuses to even put it on the negotiating table.

Netanyahu went on to say:
Well, Iran could have the means to deliver that nuclear arsenal to the far-reach corners of the earth, including to every part of the United States.

WH Press Sec. Admits Obama and Hillary Corresponded on Her Personal Email

Via Joe


While President Barack Obama claimed that he found out about Hillary Clinton's private email from news reports (Presidents: they're just like us!), White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said today that the president and Clinton had indeed exchanged emails using Clinton's private address.
“The president, as I think many people expected, did over the course of his first several years in office trade emails with his secretary of state,” Earnest said. “I would not describe the number of emails as large, but they did have the occasion to email each other.”
Earnest then attempted to explain away Obama's earlier comments, saying that just because the president claimed he had no idea about Clinton's email address does in fact not mean that they had not exchanged emails.

Only 11% of US hispanic population believe more immigrants should be allowed

A recent survey by The Polling Company, a Washington, D.C.-based public opinion research firm, found that only 11% of the United States’ booming hispanic population believe more immigrants should be allowed in the country if U.S. companies have trouble finding workers.

The poll of 1,008 U.S. adults lends support to Sen. Jeff Sessions’ (R-Ala.) contention that supporting amnesty is not only incompatible with the rule of law, it is not necessary to win the Hispanic vote.

Brilliant: 6.5 Million Social Security Numbers Exist for People Over the Age of 112

Via Joe

There are more than 6.5 million Americans over the age of 112, according to the Social Security Administration. If you are wondering about the accuracy of this count, you are not alone.

After a man attempted to open bank accounts using active Social Security Numbers from both 1869 and 1893, the Office of the Inspector General decided to audit the SSA. They found that as of Oct. 2013, only 35 known individuals over the age of 112 are still living worldwide.

The SSA’s Numerical Identification System (often shortened to Numident), contains all the Social Security Numbers tracing back to 1936 when they were first being issued. Apparently the SSA just hasn’t been reading the obituaries...for the last century [emphasis added]:

The Morri$ Dee$ Divorce Papers

Via comment by Anonymous on $PLC, far-left denounce Southern Heritage billboar...


Most young conservative activists see Mark Potok and Heidi Beirich as the face of the SPLC. That is because Morris Dees, the founder, has a sordid past that is dangerous for the organization to have him on any live show. Dees makes rare appearances at campuses. Even, then the Q&A session often get cancelled if their is any opposition in the crowd.

Dees has been denounced as a con artist by people all across the political spectrum. He has been denounced by major newspapers. He has been denounced by people of all races. He has been denounced on the pages of major left-wing websites like Daily Kos and Huffington Post.

Harper’s Weekly, a publication cherished by liberal reporters, even published an expose denouncing Morris Dees.

Most young activists don’t even know about Dees, because their attention is directly at the people Dees’ uses as a buffer.

Young activists should acquaint themselves with the infamous Morris Dees Divorce papers.

Read this expose from Weekly Standard.
