Harry Reid before: ‘No sane country would reward illegal aliens’

Harry Reid was against illegals before he was for them. No surprise with dirty Harry.

Thank you C-Span!  Here’s Harry hoisting himself by his own petard!  Next time some liberal starts whining about how only those e-vile Conservatives oppose illegal immigrants, just send ‘em this link! In this footage from 1993:

Sen. Harry Reid speaks forcefully that “no sane country” would reward illegal aliens with citizenship for their off-spring.


Last week, the Senate Majority Leader was asked about Republican calls for hearings on the birthright citizenship issue: “They’ve either taken leave of their senses or their principles.”

Kerry tells Congress to go to heck. Will he take ‘agreement’ to the U.N.?

Haughty John Kerry who just gave a lecture to Congress about “interfering” with policy was the same man who gave aid and comfort to our enemy during the Vietnam War. So now the Iran deal is not a treaty but an agreement that will be taken to the U.N. and sanctions will be lifted. I ask you, who is the traitor?

The Obama administration hinted Thursday that it may take elements of an Iranian nuclear deal to the United Nations — while bypassing Congress for now. And that possibility has turned an already ugly political fight over the negotiations even nastier.

In one scenario floated this week, the White House would not immediately put aspects of an Iran deal up for a vote in Congress. Instead, the Obama administration would take aspects of the agreement to the United Nations Security Council — making the U.N. the target of a Congressional hatefest.

Clinton: ‘The server will remain private because I decreed it’

Anyone who missed Pant Suits yesterday give her spin on why she is so special that no one dare question her was in for a treat. The whole presser is out there, but I think this one sums it up completely. I have to give the press credit. There were a few who were willing to ask real questions. For some reason I don’t think Trey Gowdy may be in agreement.

 

The attitude on this video is just astonishing. She was shaking her head so much in response to the question about deleting emails, I thought her head was going to spin completely around. Of course, she then admitted she had done just that to about half of her emails. Of course, only the “private” ones…

She claimed all the server has on it now is her private emails with her husband. So the “server will remain private”.

Of course, Bill’s spokesman just said he doesn’t send email, that he’s only sent two in his life, while he was president.

Hillary Clinton’s brother gets rare Haitian gold mine permit

Like Sister like brother. Over two Billion in U.S. Aid has been given to Haiti. And Algeria gives big bucks for Haitian relief? I wonder how much Algeria got for the donation. Money laundering at it best. This is not the first brush will nasty activity. Tony Rodham was involved in a Visa scam.

UPDATE: Just out: For the latest creepy long fingers which didn’t stop with goldmines.

The Clintons: Viceroys of Haiti – Breitbart

But first:

Hillary Rodham Clinton’s brother, Tony Rodham, sat on the board of a self-described mining company that in 2012 received one of only two “gold exploitation permits” from the Haitian government—the first issued in over 50 years.

The tiny North Carolina company, VCS Mining, also included on its board Bill Clinton’s co-chair of the Interim Haiti Recovery Commission (IHRC), former Haitian Prime Minister Jean-Max Bellerive.

VCS’s coveted gold mining exploitation permit was apparently such a sweetheart deal that it outraged the Haitian senate, since royalties to be paid to the Haitian government were only 2.5%, a sum mining experts say is at least half the standard rate. Moreover, themining project in Morne Bossa came with a generous ability to renew the project for up to 25 years. Nevertheless, the fledgling company proudly touted its luck in landing the deal.

“This is one of two permits issued today, the first permit of their kind issued in over five decades,” reads the only press release under VCS’s “news” tab on its scant website.

The Lobbying Database, who gives how much for what

If anyone wonders why the votes taken by Congress turn out the way they do, this excellent work by Open Secrets gives us all the info we need. If you have a few moments of leisure on a Saturday, here is the place to go:

In addition to campaign contributions to elected officials and candidates, companies, labor unions, and other organizations spend billions of dollars each year to lobby Congress and federal agencies. Some special interests retain lobbying firms, many of them located along Washington’s legendary K Street; others have lobbyists working in-house. They have got totals spent on lobbying, beginning in 1998, for everyone from AAI Corp. to Zurich Financial.

You can use the options on the website to search through their database in several ways: search by name for a company, lobbying firm or individual lobbyist; search for the total spending by a particular industry; view the interests that lobbied a particular government agency; or search for lobbying on a general issue or specific piece of legislation.

DEA and ATF storing gun show attendees license plates

Why this is not a major news story is no doubt because it involves us “bitter clingers.” By now all of this information is stored in the great data center in Utah. 343 million plus images are now stored. Been to a gun show lately? No doubt you now are a threat to America. Here we go:

According to emails obtained by the American Civil Liberties Union, federal authorities planned to monitor gun show parking lots with automatic license plate readers.

The insight comes from a damning report released by the ACLU this week on a secretive program by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration to build a massive database of license plates images collected by automated license plate reader devices. As part of this investigation, emails released through the Freedom of Information Act detailed a planned cooperation between the DEA’s National License Plate Recognition initiative and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives to scan and record the plates and vehicle images of gun show attendees.

“DEA Phoenix Division Office is working closely with ATF on attacking the guns going to [redacted] and the gun shows, to include programs/operation with LPRs at the gun shows,” reads an April 2009 email.

The time and place mentioned in the email coincides with known information on the Justice Department’s Fast and Furious operation, a controversial “gunwalking” scandal that possibly transferred as many as 2,000 guns to drug traffickers in Mexico. That program was run out of the Phoenix ATF Field Division office, just two miles from the DEA office.

An undated DEA slideshow released to the ACLU mentions that, at the time, 100 plate readers were deployed in eight states to include California, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, Nevada, Florida, Georgia and New Jersey. These readers were a mixed of fixed, portable and mobile devices that could scan and record as many as ten images per vehicle.

The extensively redacted presentation states that the then-current database held some “343+ million” images and that cleared law enforcement personnel from other federal, state, local and tribal agencies could access the archives.

They call the Tea Party folks wacko birds? Conservatives don’t want an alcoholic foul mouth for Speaker of the House. Throw in a cry baby. For the back story I give you a link from an earlier post: Boehner threatens purge of member’s Committee seats if not supported 

Rep. John Boehner narrowly survived a tense vote to win a third term as House Speaker, winning the support of 216 of his colleagues.

Boehner, R-Ohio, was elected with 216 votes, but 24 Republicans voted for someone else while one voted present.
