“Does the FBI use drones for surveillance on U.S. soil?” Republican Senator Charles Grassley of Iowa asked during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing.
“Yes,” Mueller said, adding that the use was in “a very, very minimal way and very seldom.”
I’m sorry to hear that they are being used in ”a very, very minimal way and very seldom.” Up to me, they would be employed full-time along our southern border, helping to protect our sovereignty. If only we had an administration willing to respond to border crashers, including OTMs (other than Mexican) like alQaeda.
There’s a way. But no will.

That means quit trying to beat Democrats at their game of identity politics and focus instead of doing what’s right for all Americans. Intelligent Hispanics get it. They get the conservative platform of equal opportunity, freedom, and personal and economic liberty. Which is about thirty percent of them.
In the midst of negotiations in Congress over an immigration overhaul, House Republicans are planning a series of meetings with Hispanic-Americans in the nation’s capital as part of a partywide effort to woo minority voters.
By taking the “GOP needs to reach out to Hispanics” bait from democratic strategists, the GOP is confirming the demagoguery the Left is spewing. Republicans are wasting their time getting wrapped around the axle chasing the 70 percent of Hispanics that vote by rote for Democrats. Fact is, if seventy percent of Hispanics voted for Romney instead of Obama in 2012, Romney still would have lost. Besides all that, when did benevolent democrats decide to help republicans get more Hispanic votes from them?

Unfettered by failure, and with a memory shorter than sixty days, Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel and Maj. Gen. Bennet Sacolick, director of force management for U.S. Special Operations Command, are seemingly willing to lower standards in order to put women in the most physically demanding of military roles.
Back in April, the results of this experiment proved that women in the most demanding roles can’t cut it. No shame there. Just a fact of life.

Claiming the cost of completing a border fence that was approved by Congress 5 or 6 years ago, and included again in the pending immigration bill, is too expensive, the SEIU (the world’s largest labor union) is broadcasting their activists to call their Senators in Washington to oppose protecting our border.
It’s funny how the SEIU doesn’t seem to recognize that the cost to taxpayers of having an un-secure border is way higher by orders of magnitude. Obviously, their concern about illegal immigrants isn’t the cost to taxpayers. On the contrary, their concern is to capture more dues-paying and/or government subsidized union members out of the millions that are hear now and the millions that will follow. See it for what it is.
No, President Obama is not lost. If by ‘lost’ you mean he doesn’t know where he is. He’s lost because we don’t know where he is. Speaking of the now not so secret blanket capturing of all electronic communication. The same program that began as a result of the 9/11/2001 attacks under the Bush administration. And not only continued by President Obama, but expanded by Obama.
Where is he defending his position on this? No where. He sends out low-level surrogates to brag about how many attacks were stopped by it. That’s fine. But with opposition now building from the Left and the Right, you would think that Mr. Macho Barack Hussein Obama Mmmm Mmmm Mmmm, would be brave enough to defend himself and the programs he’s using. You might think that, but you’d be wrong.
Truth is, he looks at everything he does through a political lens. And he sees trouble with his base through his lens if he were to take a stand in support of those programs. He sees his base running from him if he were to condemn the traitor that ran to Hong Kong to divulge top secret intelligence to the world because they see him as a hero. To skate out of this dilemma, he would have to talk through both sides of his mouth simultaneously. Something I don’t think even he can do.
That’s why the idealog President can’t be presidential and sit at his desk, in the oval office, and explain to the American people just what is going on and why it is going on. An empty suit is as an empty suit does.
I’m reminded of a remark by James Carville during the 2008 campaign when he supported Hillary Clinton. Speaking about Barack, Carville said if Hillary gave him one of her balls, they’d both have two.
Good question. The IRS has morphed from investigating white-collar tax cheats into a lawless government-run and taxpayer paid bunch of gangsters. That any of these federal agents would take up arms against their fellow citizens is disconcerting. Fingering their boss who would give such an order would be the right thing to do. The DOJ, FBI, and IRS have become Obama’s Mafia.
For a vivid example of Obama’s Mafia, check out this documentary Rampant Injustice, produced by Jan Morgan Media. A re-enactment based on interviews from people who were there.

According to the Escambia County Florida Department of Health . . .
Since 2010, Escambia County has seen an increase in the number of reported cases of syphilis each year. Prior to 2010, we averaged from 20-25 cases per year. In 2012, we had a total of 106 cases of syphilis reported in Escambia County. Currently, Escambia County is ranked #1 in the state of Florida for the number of cases reported.
Between the contaminated waters, and syphilis, it seems we have a lot more to worry about than what kind of development unrelated to a park is going to be built in a “park.”
The health department’s website recommends the following:
You could have syphilis and not even know it. A syphilis infection may have no signs or symptoms. The Florida Department of Health in Escambia County recommends that any sexually active residents get tested.
- Syphilis spreads by direct contact with syphilis sores. It can be passed from mother to baby during pregnancy.
- Symptoms may include the following:
| ͦ Painless sores
ͦ Body rashes
ͦ Patchy hair loss
- Some people never have symptoms.
- Syphilis sores may disappear, but the disease will continue to progress.
- Syphilis is treatable, but left untreated it can be deadly.
If you are sexually active, see your primary care physician to get tested or go to:

We don’t hear enough of this in politics today. Especially from the people in Washington that we elected to speak for us.
Too few are. So why aren’t they standing up and speaking out like Sarah Palin?
And direct from the Planned Parenthood event, praising their success in preventing fatherhood, we have this.
I’m still laughing at the values he claims to have learned . . . “hard work, integrity, responsibility.” Can’t disagree that they are good values to learn. I just don’t see any evidence that he learned any of them.
And to all you fathers out there, sperm donors and deadbeat dads not included, Happy Father’s Day!
Morris, a black-and-white kitten with orange eyes, is running for mayor of Xalapa in eastern Mexico with the campaign slogan “Tired of Voting for Rats? Vote for a Cat.” And he is attracting tens of thousands of politician-weary, two-legged supporters on social media. He promises to eat, sleep most of the day and donate his leftover litter to fill potholes.
Also running for mayor are “Chon the Donkey” in the border city of Ciudad Juarez, “Tina the Chicken” in Tepic, the capital of the Pacific coast state of Nayarit, “Maya the Cat” in the city of Puebla and “Tintan the Dog” in Oaxaca City, though their campaigns are not as well organized as that of Morris.
