 White House Amnesty 2.0  
Immigration is a hot topic, says Gallup: "With thousands of undocumented immigrant minors crossing the nation's southern border in recent months, the percentage of Americans citing immigration as the top problem has surged to 17% this month, up from 5% in June, and the highest seen since 2006." So what's the White House plan? To move forward with more executive actions that grant amnesty to more illegals, of course. Never let a crisis go to waste. More...  - The Patriot Post
 Pulosi Turns on Immigration Bill  
House Minority Leader Nancy Pulosi (D-CA) signaled Democrats won't play nice when it comes to fixing a 2008 law regarding immigration. That law is being abused to allow for the current flood of illegal alien minors, and there is a bipartisan proposal to fix it. Yet Pulosi announced, "I do think the bill that was introduced is exactly the wrong way to go. Is the only immigration bill we're going to have one that hurts children?" Always the irrational emotional appeal with her. What hurts these children is opening the door wide with a welcome sign that encourages them to brave the dangers of getting here. But doesn't Nancy care about the ones who drown in the Rio Grande? Pulosi says, "This crisis is an opportunity to demonstrate who we are as a country." Indeed -- one ruled by law or by men.   - The Patriot Post
 VA ShamWow  
Veterans Affairs can be fixed, acting VA Secretary Sloan Gibson told Congress Wednesday. And if you call now, it can be done in two years for the low price of ... $17.6 billion. In the spirit of a TV infomercial, Sloan declared, "We must, all of us, seize this opportunity. We can turn these challenges into the greatest opportunity for improvement in the history of this department." Sloans plan is to hire 10,000 more employees, including 1,500 doctors. The VA's problems are huge, including overpaying its employees for scandalous "service." Is more money really the only thing that can keep bureaucrats from abusing our veterans?

 House Cuts IRS Budget  
House Republicans voted Tuesday night to slash the IRS's budget by 13%, leaving the delinquent agency a mere $9.8 billion for the next fiscal year. According to the Associated Press, the cut can perhaps be considered retribution for IRS targeting of conservative political groups. The AP quotes Rep. Paul Gosar (R-AZ), "author of an amendment to cut the IRS tax enforcement budget by $353 million," as saying, "The use of a government agency to harass, target, intimidate and threaten lawful, honest citizens was the worst form of authoritarianism." Furthermore, the AP notes, "Rep. Bill Huizenga, R-Mich., followed up with an amendment to cut $788 million more." Reining in the abuse of power at the IRS begins with the power of the purse. More...

 nObama's $1.2 Trillion Lie  
The cost of Barack nObama's more infamous lie is enough to give just about anyone a heart attack. "[W]e're going to work with you to lower your premiums by $2,500 per family per year," nObama repeatedly declared during his first presidential election bid. Years later, reality is hitting our wallets hard. "How would you feel if someone promised to give you a car, and then reneged on that pledge?" asks Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal. "That's how all Americans should feel when it comes to nObamaCare -- because Barack nObama's failed and discredited campaign promise to lower health insurance premiums has cost the average American family an amount equal to the price of many new cars." Jindal says, "Americans have faced a cumulative $6,388 per individual, and $18,610 per family, in higher costs because President nObama's health plan has failed to achieve its promised premium reductions. Overall, that amounts to $1.2 trillion in higher premium costs due to nObamaCare's failure to deliver." This is what fundamental transformation looks like, masqueraded with the art of the "Big Lie."

 Afghanistan: Security.   Yesterday, a suicide attack killed at least 89 people in Paktika Province, in southeastern Afghanistan, when a car packed with explosives detonated near a busy market and mosque.
Comment: The spokesman for the Taliban denied that the Taliban conducted the bombing. No group has claimed responsibility for the attack. During this Watch, a dozen anti-government fighters attacked Kabul international airport. No serious damage has been done to the airport facilities. Two attackers are dead and the others are supposedly surrounded. All flights have been diverted.
Comment: A well-informed and brilliant Reader advised that this year's fighting season would feature fewer, but more sensational attacks. The two attacks above plus the temporary overrun of district offices in Helmand and Ghor Provinces bear out that prediction.  -NightWatch
 Sen. Ted Cruz: Faith Fines Have No Business in Our Democracy  
Today on Capitol Hill, Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, had a message for President nObama and Senate Democrats voting to undermine the Supreme Court’s Hobby Lobby decision... “If you’re litigating against nuns, you have probably done something wrong.” Sixty votes were needed to debate the bill, which was sponsored by Sens. Patty Murray, D-Wash.,  and Mark Udall, D-Colo. However, the Senate voted 56 to 43, largely on party lines, in favor of upholding religious freedom of employers. In his prepared speech, Cruz added, “Mr. President, it saddens me that there are not 100 senators here unified, regardless of our faith, standing together protecting the religious liberty rights of everyone.” Watch the video for his full statement.
 dHillarious’s Greed is Destroying Her Presidential Campaign  
dHillarious Clinton’s book tour was supposed to be her first step on the road to the White House. Instead her publisher is looking at a $10 million loss on her royalties...alone as shelves at every big box book store groan under unsold copies of Hard Choices and instead of answering softball questions about empowering women, she was forced to discuss her defense of a twelve year old girl’s rapist. And then there was the money question. Like the rest of their political movement, the Clintons want to be poor in spirit and rich in mansions. They want to play the class warfare game from a private jet. Usually the media lets them get away with it. No one asks Elizabeth Warren how she combines class warfare and a small fortune. But the media hacks holding out for a Warren candidacy began hammering dHillarious over her enormous wealth. And dHillarious Clinton responded with off-the-cuff lies. Her “dead broke” gaffe reminded everyone why her husband wasn’t even the embarrassing one in the bunch. At least he could lie convincingly.
 New Islamic Caliphate Declares Jihad on … Muslims  
The new “caliphate” of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi—the Islamic State, formerly “ISIS”—recently made clear that it means to follow in the footsteps of the original caliphate of Abu Bakr al-Sadiq (632-634)...specifically by directing its jihad against fellow Muslims, in Islamic parlance, the “hypocrites” and “apostates,” or in Western terminology, “moderates.” This came out in the context of the current conflict between Israel and Hamas, with some Muslims asking the newly formed “caliphate” when it would launch a jihad on the Jewish state. The Islamic State’s response? “Allah in the noble Koran does not command us to fight Israel or the Jews until we fight the apostates and hypocrites.” On one of the Islamic State’s question-and-answer websites, some asked why it was “not fighting Israel but instead shedding the blood of the sons of Iraq and Syria.” The new caliphate responded:
 Is the UN Abolishing the U.S. Constitution?  
Traditionally, international law only governed the relations between nations. But now, this concept has evolved into something that’s threatening the very foundation of our country...Case in point: As young illegal immigrants pour across the Mexican border from Central America, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) is hoping America grants them refugee status. The UN believes that if we refuse these sick, poverty-stricken children, it will be a violation of international law…But American law specifically prohibits the entrance of unaccompanied minors. So now, both bodies of law are in direct conflict – and the UN isn’t budging. And this raises an important question: Has America lost its sovereignty to a new world order?
 House Has No Plans to Defund Unconstitutional Acts by nObama  
House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) indicated today that if President Barack nObama takes actions that exceed his constitutional authority, the House of Representatives has no plans to use its own constitutional authority to withhold funding from those actions...At his weekly press briefing, asked Boehner: “You’ve said you disagree with calls to impeach the president over abuse of power via executive actions. But under the Constitution the House actually has the power of the purse. So, if the President takes actions that exceed his Constitutional authority, will you withhold funding for those actions in the next must-pass appropriations bill?
 New nObama rule could force cities to house illegals 
The nObama administration, in July 2013, quietly introduced a new regulation that critics say will dramatically increase Washington’s power over local zoning laws in every city and town that accepts federal block grants through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development...And it’s the federal grants that could be used as a hook in the nose of these cities, forcing them to house illegal immigrants against their will. Some are calling it the “Common Core of local zoning” that has flown under the radar for nearly a year. Instead of the U.S. Department of Education dictating education standards to local school districts, this rule change would allow HUD to influence zoning laws from the biggest cities down to the tiniest towns.
 nObama Turning Over U.S. Oceans to the U.N.  
It seems there is just too much on the plate of our current president, Barack nObama. With so many duties to fulfill, it appears he’s having trouble keeping up. Just to take care of one task, he neglects another and it is starting to split the American people even more...Just here on The Inquisitr, we reported how nObama is somewhat avoiding the situation at the Texas border. This includes two trips in which the first he avoided the border completely and the second, he “talked” about the border’s problem of illegal immigration. In the end, it looks like all he wanted to do was kick back, shoot pool, and drink beer in Denver. Now reports are coming in that Barack nObama is renewing his efforts for the U.S. to join the Law of the Sea Treaty which was enforced by the United Nations. Summarized, nObama is turning over control of U.S. oceans to the U.N.
 Released Alien from Border Crisis Arrested for Alleged Murder  
An illegal immigrant who was released by U.S. authorities with a Notice to Appear has been arrested for the alleged murder of a woman and kidnapping of children on U.S. soil...The alleged crimes occurred after the man was released. The man, Pedro Alberto Monterroso-Navas, entered the U.S. illegally with children and turned himself in to U.S. Border Patrol agents. He was processed and released, as are all illegal immigrants who come as unaccompanied minors or incomplete family units from Central America. The alien is from Honduras.  The arrest was first reported by the Associated Press (AP), but Breitbart Texas has exclusively confirmed that the man was part of the Obama Administration’s catch and release policy for family groups from Central America.
 nObama Attacks Second Amendment with Executive Order  
In response to Russia’s aggressive actions in Ukraine, the U.S. government has issued a number of new sanctions against Russian companies. Among the companies targeted is Kalashnikov Concern, the arms manufacturing company that makes AK-47s...Under the new sanctions, Americans who own a Kalashnikov Concern product, like an AK-47, that was “bought and fully paid for prior to the date of designation (i.e., no payment remains due to Kalashnikov Concern), then that product is not blocked and OFAC sanctions would not prohibit the U.S. person from keeping or selling the product in the secondary market, so long as Kalashnikov Concern has no interest in the transaction,” according to the Treasury Department.
 Dem Congressman Calls Qatar's Hamas Support on Al-Jazeera  
A congressman's recent criticism of Al-Jazeera America's Qatari owners for funding of Hamas has renewed questions about the network's journalistic integrity...Rep. Brad Sherman, D-Calif., who sits on the House Foreign Affairs Committee, also slammed the network's coverage of the latest round of fighting between Hamas and Israel during his July 9 appearance on the network. "Every one of those rockets [fired by Hamas into Israeli cities] is a war crime, almost every one," Sherman said, noting that Hamas seeks to hit civilian targets. "Of course it's a war crime committed by Hamas. And of course the owners of this TV network help fund Hamas."
Palestinian genocide is real
Caroling B. Glick
    If the Palestinians are merely engaged in a nationalist struggle for self-determination, then why are they inciting genocide of Jewry? In the midst of Operation Protective Edge, Hamas released a music video in Hebrew calling for the Palestinians to bomb Israel and kill all Israelis.

     "Raze it Israel to the ground, exterminate the cockroaches' nest, and banish all the Zionists," the lyrics read.

     Some human rights activists and lawyers may get a sense of déjà vu upon reading these words. Back in 1994, there were several radio broadcasts calling for the extermination of human cockroaches.

They were in Rwanda.

     When the Hutus began their genocide of the Tutsis on April 6, 1994, the most popular radio station in the country was RTLM, owned by relatives and friends of Rwandan president Juvenal Habyrarimana.

     That day, RTLM exhorted its listeners, "You have to kill the Tutsis, they're cockroaches. All those who are listening, rise so we can fight for our Rwanda. Fight with the weapons you have at your disposal: those who have arrows, with arrows, those who have spears, with spears.

     We must all fight. We must all fight the Tutsis. We must finish with them, exterminate them, sweep them from the whole country. There must be no refuge for them."

     RTLM continued to incite for genocide throughout the war. And as the invading Tutsi army came in from Uganda, RTLM staff fled to Zaire with a mobile radio transmitter to continue broadcasting.

     After the war, several senior RTLM managers and journalists were convicted of inciting genocide, and conspiracy to carry out genocide and crimes against humanity. And all right-thinking people cheered.

But then, those were Hutus.

     Even Palestinian officials acknowledge that their missile offensive that began last month is a crime against humanity.

     In an interview with Palestinian Authority TV last week, Ibrahim Khreiseh, the PLO 's ambassador to the UN Human Rights Committee admitted, "The missiles that are now being launched against Israel — each and every missile constitutes a crime against humanity whether it hits or misses, because it is directed at civilian targets."

     Khreiseh also explained that since Palestinians in Gaza have "appeared on TV and said that the Israeli army warned them to evacuate their homes before the bombardment... if someone is killed, the law considers it a mistake rather than an intentional killing because the Israelis followed legal procedures."

     Khreiseh then noted, "We never warn anyone about where these missiles are about to fall or the operations we carry out."

     In other words, the PLO 's own representative said that Israel is innocent and the Palestinians are guilty of conducting acts of genocide.

     But their Western supporters don't care. Instead, their affection and commitment to the Palestinian campaign against Israel grows in intensity every time the Palestinians escalate their genocidal incitement and violence.

     This support regularly involves anti-Jewish violence directed against local Jewish communities and pro-Israel activists.

    Consider France. Since the beginning of the year, anti-Jewish violence and intimidation in France has reached levels not seen since the Holocaust. And things have only gotten worse since Palestinian terrorists in Hebron kidnapped and murdered Naftali Fraenkel, Eyal Yifrah and Gil-Ad Shaer a month ago. Life for Jews in France is becoming increasingly untenable.

     Anti-Jewish attacks run the gamut from shouting "Death to the Jews," and "Finish Hitler's Work," to delivering bomb threats to Jewish kindergartens and businesses, to vandalizing Jewish businesses, institutions and other property, to physically assaulting Jews of all ages, as well as Jewish institutions.

     On Sunday, violent mass assaults on Jewish targets commenced just as a two-hour-long fanatically pro-Palestinian march was dispersing. Nearly 200 Jewish worshipers were trapped inside of the Don Issac Avrabanel synagogue as assailants, riled up from the march, threw bricks at the synagogue and attacked its Jewish defenders with metal rods.

     In the US, levels of violence against Jews by supporters of the Palestinians continue to rise. In San Francisco, pro-Palestinian protesters showed their solidarity with the Palestinian goal of genocide by, among other things, calling for Israel's destruction while wearing white gloves with red paint on the fingers and palms.

     One of the most searing images of the Palestinian terror war against Israel was the photograph taken on October 12, 2000, of a Palestinian terrorist at the Ramallah police station standing in the window and holding up his blood-soaked hands to a cheering crowd below.

     Inside, he and his war criminal comrades had torn apart two IDF reservists who got lost on the road and accidentally entered Ramallah. The blood on his hands was theirs.

     In Los Angeles and Boston, pro-Israel demonstrators were physically assaulted and subjected to anti-Semitic vitriol. In Seattle, pro-Palestinian protesters held up placards depicting Jews eating Palestinian children and drinking their blood.

     Street protests calling for the annihilation of Israel, expressing support for Palestinian terrorists, engaging in rank anti-Jewish incitement and violent assaults against Jews enjoy the intellectual support of the professoriate and the media.

    This week, Daniel Mael, a pro-Israel activist at Brandeis, published excerpts from a previously secret listserv of nearly a hundred university professors. On it, the professors "express their fear and disdain on issues ranging from US foreign and domestic policy, the 'American system,' and 'the Israelists.'" In other words, anti-Israelism is one of the causes that comprise the Leftist ideological litmus test.

     Then there is the media. With rare exceptions, foreign reporting of the Palestinian assault on Israel has followed the script. Both sides are fighting. Israel is killing more Palestinians than the Palestinians are killing Jews.

Therefore Israel must stop defending itself.

     And the diplomatic community — with the notable exception of Canada — has been similarly predictable.

     No one admits what Khreiseh acknowledged about each separate rocket launch constituting a separate war crime.

     No one mentions that Fatah terrorists joined Hamas in its missile campaign.

     Then there are the leftist American Jews who claim that they are pro-Israel and pro-Palestinian. The Palestinian rocket war makes them uncomfortable.

     On the one hand, they cannot ignore the fact that 80 percent of Israelis have been targeted for slaughter by Hamas rockets over the past week and a half. But on the other hand, they define themselves by their criticism of Israel, not their criticism of the Palestinians. So, J Street, like Eric Yoffie from the Reform Movement, condemned both the Palestinians and Israel. The Palestinians are bad to shoot rockets to kill Israelis. The Israelis are bad because they continue to live in Judea and Samaria and Jerusalem.

     As Yoffie explained in a recent essay in Haaretz, to combat Hamas, Israel needs to quit Judea, Samaria and Jerusalem, as it quit Gaza in 2005, because then Fatah will make peace with Israel.

     Like the Israeli leftists they adore, neither Yoffie nor his fellow leftist Jews have ever explained how peace with Fatah will solve Israel's problem with Hamas. They never explain how such a peace will pacify or otherwise tame Hamas, an organization committed to the commission of the genocide of world Jewry.

     These are distressing times for Israel. For over a week, more than four million Israelis have been forced to run to bomb shelters to protect themselves from Hamas's attempts to slaughter civilians with rockets in order to advance its ultimate aim of genocide.

     And even as Palestinian officials acknowledge the nature of this war, rather than rethink their support for genocidal terrorists anti-Israel activists in the US and Europe redouble their support for the Palestinians, by among other things engaging in violent assaults on local Jews. In so doing, they demonstrate that they share the Palestinians' ultimate objective.

These activists are in turn supported by the leftist academia.

     Their efforts are buoyed by the media which, at a minimum, fail to report on the nature of the campaign against Israel and generally, actively strive to obfuscate it. Leftist Jews, while compelled to condemn Hamas rocket fire, (but not rocket fire by Fatah militias), nonetheless make clear that at a minimum, Israel is also to blame for the Palestinian assault because it doesn't give other Palestinians its heartland and capital city.

     Finally, as we see with US-led Western demand that Israel reach a cease-fire with Hamas without first defeating the Palestinian terror machine in Gaza, the activists, the professoriate and the media are joined by political leaders who all agree that inciting and acting on behalf of the genocide of Jewry is not a disqualifying offense.
