The brutal Obama policy that’s really driving the Border Crisis we need to make sure more people know about this, it answers some important questions.           The Department of Homeland Security says the unprecedented deluge of 52,000 unaccompanied minors began in October. That’s just two months after the directive was issued.

This is the evil the cartels do when they drop their illegal immigrants to fend for themselves in South Texas, New Mexico or Arizona.

If Leading from Behind is working it’s not obvious.

The president has spent the last few weeks laughing at everything.  But now he is faced with something possibly new and disturbing; something which a speech or an executive order won’t handle. He must tread very carefully. Above all he must remember that foreign policy is not something he conducts out of the golf course.  Richard Fernandez

An Over abundance of Crises; Crises around the world; is it our fault?

On February 25th I wrote a post  titled  If we are weak who is going to protect the world?  I am afraid we are finding the answer to that question.  Of course, in each particular case it is not something we have overtly done that is responsible.  What we have done is a passive omission of strength not shown.  It is what we have not done. We have not stood strong and able, we have not given a moral stance to our positions, in fact in this administration everything is relative or if not relative it is our fault and for which we should apologize.

In that post I said

I hear many people say, and read what many people write, “why is it our job to protect the world?”  Well, here is my answer on that.  “Look at history.  See what happens when the USA is weak, wishy washy, run by appeasers, and isolationist.”  WWI and WWII come to mind.

[....]

I am not a national figure, I have no stature in political circles, but I have lived a long time and I see the world through eyes that were young during Pearl Harbor, but I remember it well and I remember history beyond then and up until today.  I have always loved history and know very well the old saying “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”  It is my sincere hope and wish that the USA does not allow a global war to happen because we followed a man known as Barack Hussein Obama over the cliff.

Obama may be misreading the 2008 Immigration law – to his own advantage, of course.

The Government Is Using Subliminal Songs To Scare Immigrants  I would not consider this to be subliminal, it is meant to deter, but I wonder if the young boys don’t think of it as an exciting adventure and they will conquer the Beast.

Somehow I missed this news, did you?  Things I thought I’d never see: Egyptians supporting Israel against Hamas

Just looking at the Drudge Report this morning I find so many headlines that I have “snarky” answers to without bothering to read them. Among them these:“Group At Center Of IRS Scandal Has Never Been Interviewed By FBI Investigators”;  “People who claim to worry about climate change use more electricity”“INTEL REPORT: 95% of Migrants Expect to Receive ‘Permisos’ to Stay in USA…”“HARRY REID: Judge Judy Would Throw Out Boehner’s Lawsuit In ‘Half A Second’”

Less than 3 percent of the U.S. population identify themselves as gay, lesbian or bisexual, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported Tuesday in the first large-scale government survey measuring Americans’ sexual orientation.  No surprise to us, but to some of the media, or maybe all of the media, it is.

I don’t care what else Dana Milbank has to say in this article, but I found this first paragraph so funny I had to share it with you. President Obama has described his foreign-policy doctrine as an attempt to hit singles, doubles and the occasional home run. But at this stage of the game, it looks as though he has popped out, grounded into a double play and been hit by a pitch.

These are not children, these are grown men.  (a short video)

I find this easy to believe – EXCLUSIVE: HHS Bankrolled Catholic and Baptist Church from 2010 to 2013 to Prepare for Obama’s 2014 Invasion!

Instead of separate links to the articles in this site I am sending a link to the site so you can see some of the sites I visit regularly.  Canada Free Press

Why now? For a really good explanation read this. Why are so  many more Central Americans Trying to Cross the Border now?

Why Is Congress Again Using a Budget Process that Will Protect Ineffective Programs?

Where do you live Mark Zuckerberg?

I am not a scientist but I agree with this one and have always thought it was so. Key words: Science is an incredibly successful narrative that we patch together the best way we can. But it should not be sold as perfect or all-powerful. There’s so much that science will never be able to explain

Citigroup announced Monday that it will pay roughly $7 billion to settle a federal investigation into risky subprime mortgages, the type that helped bring on the financial crisis.   After reading this I did a Google search “What Obama Administration officials are linked to Citigroup?”  Try it, you will get many more hits than you have time to read.

From research my husband, Dick Hoese, has done we get this: Convicted felon designed EPA’s playbook for faking science and this:  EPA’s Playbook Unveiled: A Story of Fraud, Deceit, and Secret Science  This is a PDF file and a minority report from the US Senate, it will download automatically so check your downloads to read it.  This is what Dick has to say about it:

According to this a now jailed convicted felon was responsible for current regulations based on 1970s data that was never properly examined under the Clean Air Act,  and  also supported by the current EPA administrator. My last dealing  (two decades ago) with the  EPA gave an inkling to something going on there. It had to do with the conclusion being more important than the data, which is what apparently happened here. While it is a logical error to blame something or somebody without the connection, the 1970s data does not seem to exist.

The connection is not clear yet, but since this deals with ozone and dust in the air, it is a small leap to classifying storm water a pollutant.

Another Hoese heard from, my conservative son sent me this link as an instance of how Democrats are turning away from Obama:.

No, this is not a movie script about a corrupt government. It’s real.  The Federal Department of Justice has decided not to investigate the CIA for spying on the Senate Intelligence Committee, which just happened to be investigating the CIA — on its Detention and Interrogation Procedures.Democratic Senator and Intelligence Committee member Mark Udall is one of the Senators saying they need to keep investigating It’s corruption and it is happening.  Meanwhile, here’s proof that Udall has disembarked from the Obama train.

Now if I could just convert that liberal son…..

Some faculty members from Brandeis University show how far a “liberal education” has fallen.  Liberal doesn’t mean what they think it does or maybe just not what it used to be.  These people are to the left of Obama, or as they refer to him, Obomber.  “What fools these mortals be.”

I recently had a discussion with some not very intelligent, think with your emotions, people on Facebook.  I wish I had this to link to at the time. Self Restraint, Not Drugs for All, to Stop HIV

Okay, folks, that is all for this A.M. I will probably be back at this again later today.  If the internet were a road I would have “miles to go before I sleep.”  So much to read, so much to report, so little time, and I wonder how much impact on the grand scheme of things.  But I try.
