I wish this had been considered before Tule Creek was scalped of so much of its habitat. Where are the birders going to go when Aransas County has taken away what they came to see? Eco tourism doesn’t work when you take away what draws the birds and the birders. Opinion: It’s time to Stop Thinking That all Non-Native Species are Evil

This was sent to me by Larry Ward.   SR304 Why the Illegal Immigrant Kids it is a short 3 min video that wraps up the money involved, money from yours and your grandchildren’s pockets.  This morning on C-span I saw a Democrat Rep from California denying there were be any social welfare involved.  She was either lying, terribly uninformed- or both.

Cruz and Sessions sound alarm on Obama’s Plan to expand amnesty program- it is a video but also a written article, so just stop the video if you don’t want to listen to it and read the article.

U.S. Considering Refugee Status for Hondurans – supposedly they think this would stem the flow, I think it would more likely cause it to rise exponentially, a truly open border.

Politico on Obama’s Immigration flip flop – President Barack Obama insisted for years that he had absolutely no legal authority — none whatsoever, zero, zilch — to slow deportations on a broad scale.    Forget everything he’s said.             

Obama’s pledge to use his executive powers by the end of the summer marked both a dramatic reversal in rhetoric and a major strategic shift on immigration. The president is no longer emphasizing his own powerlessness but rather his determination “to fix as much of our immigration system as I can on my own, without Congress.” 

(Also on POLITICO: Path to child migrant compromise?)        

The administration is examining how far it can go, legally and politically, to protect millions of undocumented immigrants from deportation. Despite the flow of young Central American children across the southwestern border, Obama remains committed to taking significant action, according to senior advisers and advocates who have attended recent meetings with White House officials.

Poll: One-third say impeach Obama  it is interesting the slant put on this headline, here it says in the story: A plurality of Americans — 45 percent — believe Obama has gone too far in expanding his presidential powers. Thirty percent said the president has been about right in terms of presidential powers, while 22 percent he has not gone far enough- 

But as I was listening to Morning Joe this morning on MSNBC Mika Brezinski said “a poll shows only 33% of Americans think Obama should be impeached.”

If I had been reading that headline I would have said, “Wow! a whopping 33% of Americans want Obama impeached!” I actually am surprised that many would admit to wanting him impeached.

Watch Obamacare Architect Jonathan Gruber Admit in 2012 That Subsidies Were Limited to State-Run Exchanges  again in this case you don’t have to watch the video, you can read the story. If this goes to the Supreme Court they should have this guy testify.  This is very important information to counteract the idea that it is just a grammatical error.

US and Islamic State: ‘We did see this coming’`  of course they did.  For a trite quote, “all is proceeding as planned.”

I never thought I would see an editorial like this in the Washington Post  Israel Must Be Permitted to Crush Hamas.

An analysis of President Barack Obama’s huge budget request for the border shows that it would only spend $25 million for the rest of the current fiscal year, which Senate Budget Committee ranking member Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) said means Congress should be in no rush to pass it.

These two were found and sent to me by my son: This story says more than half surveyed think they are better off since Obamacare enacted.  The survey actually says only 18% said that. Link to the actual data below.  Creative accounting/lying.

The vice president of the National Border Patrol Council says the current border crisis is “the dream of every terrorist in the world,” with illegal immigrants being able to board American jetliners without proper identification.  This is the dream of every terrorist in the world,” he said. “There is no way of knowing who is on board the jetliners.”

 La RAZA and the down payment from Obama – I have no doubt this current humanitarian crisis was planned for the Nov election in the expectation the Republicans would cave and give in to an amnesty bill. It must be quite a surprise to the Obamaites that this hasn’t yet happened.  My question is, will the GOP hold out?

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.
