Thought you might enjoy this.

No surprise here:

“Hundreds of immigrant families caught illegally crossing the Mexican border told U.S. immigration agents they made the dangerous journey in part because they believed they would be permitted to stay in the United States and collect public benefits, according to internal intelligence files from the Homeland Security Department.”

Now where would they ever get such an idea?

Hey, wait, didn’t Obama promise “no boots on the ground” in Syria?

The U.S. plans to send a small team of Special Operations forces to Syria as boots-on-the-ground advisers to rebel groups, according to military sources.

President Barack Obama has authorized “fewer than 50” Special Operations forces to deploy to northern Syria, The Associated Press reported.

I’m sure there will be massive anti-war protests this weekend because of this broken promise and escalation in Syria.

Yup, and pigs will fly …

Apparently we don’t have time anymore to debate important things  like a national budget in the Senate:

Forced by opponents to hold votes after midnight, GOP leaders held the support of just enough Republican and Democrats to give final Congressional approval to a two year bipartisan budget deal, as lawmakers backed away from a possible U.S. government default.

You see, now they have to read it to find out what’s in it.  How, you ask?  How does this happen?  Well, here’s a clue: 18 Republican Senators voted to shut off debate on the two year budget deal.  Among them McCain, McConnell and Graham.  And establishment Republicans wonder why no one on the right is particularly interested in any of them becoming President.

Finally, a reminder.  Ahmed says:

  • Now where would they ever get such an idea? From the millions of fliers, written in Spanish, sent all over Latin America this past spring.
    This kind of treachery doesn’t happen in a vacuum.
    Like Fast and Furious, the IRS abuse, and countless other anti-constitutional abuses; the pRESIDENT of the White Hut has his paw prints all over this.

  • Hungarian PM Viktor Orban accused billionaire George Soros of being a prominent member of “activists” trying to undermine European nations by supporting refugees, Bloomberg reported.

  • I just assume that the troops will be wearing Reeboks, Nikes, Adidas or Tough Mudder footwear, but given the proclivity of this White House to mangle the language (i.e. Overseas Contingency Operations), they won’t be called “boots”.

    Perhaps, Overseas Contingency Footwear


    Makes you wanna say “Hmmm….???”

    I wonder where the Maven of Moosesqueeze is on all this…?

  • When this latest Syrian venture proves futile, costly, and perhaps causes some good men to lose their lives – The comment from the assh*** in the White House will be “told ya so! I never wanted to do this in the first place! Those Generals made me!”

    This smacks of the hurried “People are beginning to think we’re easy!” plan Carter approved to rescue the hostages from Tehran.

    Let us take a moment now to hope and pray I am completely, thoroughly, astoundingly WRONG about this.

  • But most who spoke to McClatchy say it’s unlikely the former first lady, senator and Cabinet secretary will face charges because of her high profile and the hurdle to prove she knew the emails contained classified information when she sent them to others.

    “She’s too big to jail,” said national security attorney Edward MacMahon Jr., who represented former CIA employee Jeffrey Sterling in 2011 in a leak case that led to an espionage prosecution and 3½-year prison term. He cited a pattern of light punishments for top government officials who have mishandled classified information while lower level whistleblowers such as Sterling have faced harsh prosecutions for revealing sensitive information to expose waste, fraud or abuse in government.
