 UNRWA HQ in Gaza

New details have emerged about the booby-trapped clinic explosion that killed three IDF Maglan unit soldiers in Gaza earlier this week - Sergeant First Class Matan Gottlieb, 21, from Rishon LeZion; Sergeant First Class Omar Chai, 21, from Savion; and Sergeant First Class Guy Algranati, 20, of Tel Aviv, hy"d. 

Over eighty kilograms of explosives were built into the UN-funded hospital's walls themselves, it was cleared for publication Thursday - revealing that the clinic itself was built to mask, and perform, potential acts of terror on the IDF.

Moreover, the clinic was built over tens of terror tunnels, according to the report.

This past weekend I did what President Obama refused to do during his recent trip to Texas—I visited the U.S-Mexico border.
 
I knew that the border crisis was serious, but nothing could have prepared me for just how bad this situation truly is.

The results of the Obama administration’s lawlessness when it comes to enforcing existing immigration laws were magnified in the Rio Grande Valley, where Congressman Steve King and I visited a number of facilities and met with local, state, and federal officials.

What we saw was people processing, not border security.

Americans would be shocked to learn that virtually no one is stopped before gaining entrance. When a foreign national illegally enters the United States, they are taken to a processing facility, where it is determined whether or not they get to stay in the country.

While the popular media narrative has been to focus on the children who came here alone, it is only a small fraction of the growing problem along the southern border.

It's Over: Wisconsin Supreme Court Upholds Walker's Collective Bargaining Reforms

 

He endured massive protests and a contentious 2012 recall election, but Gov. Scott Walker of Wisconsin has been vindicated in his efforts to curb union power in the state. The Wisconsin Supreme Court upheld his collective bargaining reforms he enacted in 2011, ruling them constitutional (via Associated Press):

The fight over Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker's signature policy achievement, a law effectively ending collective bargaining for most public employees, ended Thursday with the state Supreme Court declaring it to be constitutional.


The 5-2 state Supreme Court ruling is another major victory for Walker as he heads into the statewide election. Federal courts twice said the law, which limits public workers to bargaining only over base wage increases no greater than inflation, constitutional.

Tea Party Triumphs: Divided House Abandons Vote on Border Bill

 Demonstrators protest Obama's healthcare reform plan

The House has abandoned a vote on legislation to address the immigration crisis on the border after tea partyers withdrew their support in a dispute over a separate measure on deportations.

Speaker John Boehner issued a statement Thursday saying the House would continue to work on solutions to the crisis. His statement came shortly after the House postponed the vote on the final day before a five-week summer break.

Chicken pox outbreak puts illegal immigrant facility on lockdown

Via avordvet

 

The federal government’s new facility to house illegal immigrant families surging across the border has been put on lockdown because of chicken pox, with no immigrants allowed to be transferred in or out, a congressman said this week.

Hundreds of illegal immigrants being kept at the campus of the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center in Artesia, New Mexico, are being treated for and vaccinated against chicken pox after an outbreak, said Rep. Steve Pearce, the Republican congressman whose district includes Artesia.

"As the FLETC facility reaches maximum capacity, I am increasingly concerned for the health and safety of the women and children at FLETC and for the local community. The virus, that has caused two residents to be put in isolation, has halted all departures,” Mr. Pearce said.

Executive orders and unelected regulators - Where the law is subject to some other authority and has none of its own, the collapse of the state is not far off.
Plato 

Above the law - Obama is prepared to provide millions of illegal immigrants living in the U.S. work authorization via executive orders, plunging America into third world status awash in so-called refugees... Obama’s La Raza connected goons are giddy over the prospect... If Obama succeeds, the free America we have always known will no longer exist. He has three years to do even more damage and trust me, he will. We have elected a stone-cold Marxist and he is permanently solidifying control for the Marxists in the US in perpetuum.

Mass deaths from lack of free contraceptives - Sandra Fluke was the first to expire. Before her death at New York Presbyterian, she hoarsely whispered: "I wanted only to continue having sex the same number of times I did in law school, while studying for the Law Boards - just 25-30 times a month. Was it too much to ask that my $8,000 a summer contraceptive Jones be taken care of by that lousy school I was slaving away at?" Carefully pulling the covers over Fluke's flushed and deranged face, her physician confided, "She hardly had a chance, once the Court removed her health choice. There was nothing medical science could do."

art-link-symbol-small-rev01.jpg The multi-billion dollar boondoggle
Call it what you will—taxes, penalties, fees, fines, regulations, tariffs, tickets, permits, surcharges, tolls, asset forfeitures, foreclosures, etc.—but the only word that truly describes the constant bilking of the American taxpayer by the government and its corporate partners is theft. What Americans don’t seem to comprehend is that if the government can arbitrarily take away your property, without your having much say about it, you have no true rights. You’re nothing more than a serf or a slave, says John Whitehead in this article, The Stealing of America by the Cops, the Courts, the Corporations and Congress, at The Rutherford Institute.

art-link-symbol-small-rev01.jpg How we got it wrong on fats
Milk, cheese, butter, cream—in fact all saturated fats—are bad for you. Or so I believed ever since my days as a medical student nearly 30 years ago. During that time I assured friends and family that saturated fat would clog their arteries as surely as lard down a drain. So, too, would it make them pile on the pounds. Recently, however, I have been forced to do a U-turn. It is time to apologise for all that useless advice I've been dishing out about fat, says Dr. Michael Mosley in this article, I was wrong - we should be feasting on FAT, at the Daily Mail.

Federal offense - The only federal charge ever made against Dillinger was that he drove a stolen car across a state line (the sheriff's car he stole when making his escape from the jail at Crown Point, Indiana and driving it into Illinois), and it was upon that charge alone that Hoover made Dillinger Public Enemy Number One—simply because he was getting more publicity in 1934 than was Hoover and his FBI.

The Mexican fifth column - The U.S. Constitution, in Article 4, Section 4, still mandates that the executive branch—President Barack Obama—must protect the states against invasion. Instead of protecting the states from invasion, our rogue president and his gangster henchmen are now intentionally and with forethought laying open our national borders, and are encouraging and assisting the invaders. How is this not treason?

Are Teachers Underpaid? Let’s Find Out - If teachers believe they aren't making what they're worth, and they may well be right about that, let's free them from union constraints and let them find out what the job market has to offer. Until then we can't really know. Because a bachelor's degree isn't a dispensation from the vagaries of economic reality. And teaching isn't the first step towards sainthood. Regardless of what you've heard.

Officers kicked off SWAT after Bundy comment

Via avordvet

A heat-of-the-moment comment in the aftermath of the standoff at Cliven Bundy’s ranch has cost two Las Vegas SWAT officers their jobs on the elite unit.

The officers were booted back to patrol after a Metro sniper posted an inflammatory comment about Bundy’s militant supporters on social media, the Review-Journal has learned.

Officer Russell Laws, 41, took to Facebook just hours after the April 12 standoff between federal and local officers and armed protesters ended without bloodshed.

A Bundy supporter in a public Facebook thread posted a news photo of a militia member aiming a rifle at officers.

Laws replied that police had their guns trained on Bundy’s people, too.

“I just wish you could see how big that guy prone with the rifles head was in the scope of the (police) Snipers .308 …. don’t worry, he wouldn’t have have felt a thing!” Laws posted.

Laws, a SWAT sniper since 2009, was not at the standoff, but it didn’t take long for Bundy’s supporters to look at his Facebook profile and determine he was a Metro cop.

“I have a .308 with a 20x too, buddy. I’m not worried about some fat, oath breaking cooterville SWAT sniper,” replied J.L. Bourne, an author of zombie apocalypse books and a former military officer.

Billionaires’ Club – The Environmental Movement & Politics

“There aren’t a lot of functioning democracies around the world that work this way where you can basically have millionaires and billionaires bankrolling whoever they want, however they want, in some cases undisclosed. What it means is ordinary Americans are shut out of the process.” Barack Obama, White House press conference, Oct 2013.

Breitbart London, James Delingpole reporting:

“Yes, indeed. But the millionaires and billionaires doing the damage are Obama’s allies on the liberal-left, not his enemies on the right. So says a devastating report published today by the US Senate Committee on the Environment and Public Works.


The report details how an elite group of rich liberal donors such as Tom Steyer and Hank Paulson – “the Billionaire’s Club” – is directing and controlling the far-left environmental movement, “which in turn lobbies and controls major policy decisions and lobbies on behalf of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).”
