Largest Ever Rally Against Illegal Immigration To Kick Off Friday

Americans are expected to gather at more than 300 locations throughout the United States Friday and Saturday in what organizers are calling “the largest coordinated protest against all forms of amnesty, comprehensive immigration reform, and President Obama’s complete failure to enforce immigration laws and secure our borders.”

Via a flyer announcing the event:

Our Border Patrol is overwhelmed by the massive flow of illegal aliens crossing our border daily.   Illegal aliens with communicable diseases and conditions such as tuberculosis, scabies, and head lice are entering our country unabated.   There is a very real security risk to Americans from drug cartels, gang members, and terrorists – all of whom can cross our border with no resistance.   Adding insult to injury, American taxpayers are being forced to pay for transportation, housing, schooling, legal assistance, and more for the illegals crossing our border.

Americans for Legal Immigration Reform reports that more than 50 organizations are working together to make the nationwide protests a reality.

Organizers say they have four main goals for the protests:

1)      Raise public awareness of the current Obama inspired illegal immigration surge at our borders!

2)      Unify Americans of all races, political parties, and walks of life against immigration reform amnesty and Obama’s surge!

3)      To stand in solidarity with the Americans in Murrieta, CA and Oracle, AZ and many other communities that have turned back Obama’s invasion buses and to get Americans in every state fighting back in similar fashion!

4)      To harness the growing anger and discontent in America and channel that energy into the remaining GOP primaries and general elections of 2014 and to throw as many immigration reform amnesty supporters out of office in the coming weeks!

Below is a list of protest sites throughout the Nation (alphabetized by State).

Snowden: Government Spies Routinely Gawk At Nude Photos While Sifting Through Communications Data

In an interview with The Guardian, National Security Agency whistle-blower Edward Snowden said that the people tasked with digging through private digital communications data routinely stumble across nude photos and share them with friends.

Snowden revealed:

You’ve got young enlisted guys, 18 to 22. They’ve suddenly thrust into a position of extraordinary responsibility, where they now have access to all of your private records. Now, in the course of their daily work, they stumble across something that is completely unrelated to their work in any sort of necessary sense. For example: an intimate nude photo of someone in a sexually compromising situation, but they’re extremely attractive. So what do they do? They turn around in their chair, and they show their coworker. And their coworker says, “Oh, hey, that’s great. Send that to Bill down the way. And then Bill sends it to George, George sends it to Tom, and sooner or later, this person’s whole life has been seen by all of these other people. It’s never reported. Nobody ever knows about it, because the auditing of these systems is incredibly weak.

The statement came during a conversation with Guardian editor-in-chief Alan Rusbridger and reporter Ewen MacAskill in Moscow. The full interview is set to be released Friday.

  • President Barack Obama listened to immigration activists run through a long wish list of executive actions – then added a request of his own. “You’re not going to get me impeached, are you?” Obama said, according to people in a private White House meeting late last month. “Because there’s lots of other things I want to do besides immigration.” Source: POLITICO…
  • 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. As a result, immigration now virtually ties “dissatisfaction with government,” at 16%, as the primary issue Americans think of when asked to name the country’s top problem. Source: Gallup…
  • Potential 2016 Democratic presidential candidates are showing divisions over how to handle the surge of illegal immigrant children, underscoring how quickly the immigration issue has gone from what they thought was a guaranteed political winner to an electoral headache.

  • Detroit has experienced 37 percent fewer robberies in 2014 than during the same period last year, 22 percent fewer break-ins of businesses and homes, and 30 percent fewer carjackings. Police Chief James Craig attributed the drop to better police work and criminals being reluctant to prey on citizens who may be carrying guns. Source: The Detroit News…

Personal Liberty Digest™ P.M. Edition 7-16-2014: Americans Increasingly Worried About Immigration; Liberty Groups Sue Obama Over NSA; All Guns Are The Most Dangerous Guns; Gitmo Secrets Impede Justice; Michelle Obama Race Baits In White House Photo

Brush up on the day’s headlines with Personal Liberty’s P.M. Edition news links.

News Flash: Guns In America Have Triggers, Fire Projectiles

Rolling Stone magazine recently published a highly informative photo essay titled “The 5 Most Dangerous Guns In America” which lends further credence to the notion that those who most fear firearms are also those who know the least about them. Doh!..

Americans Haven’t Been This Worried About Immigration In Years

Polling data out Wednesday indicate that President Barack Obama and Congress ought to get busy coming up with a plan to fix the immigration crisis along the U.S.’s southern border, as one in six Americans cites immigration as the most pressing issue facing the Nation. Read More…

Michelle Obama’s Hammer-Subtle Racial Photo Op

For all their acceptance among America’s pseudointellectual elite, Barack and Michelle Obama possess a gift for nuance and subtext that even the most uneducated of jerks would likely find offensive and gauche.

Today, the White House released this insult to everyone’s intelligence (as well as their sense of American unity) on its Flickr page, meta-martyring the first lady under the cruel sign of yesterday’s racists:

MO

Depending on the level of criticism the White House receives over this one, its qualified comment on the photo either will be “we still have a long way to go” (if the criticism is scant), or “look how far we’ve come” (if the criticism is robust).

Michelle Obama laid the groundwork for either reinterpretation during her speech in May, when she spoke to high school graduates in Topeka, Kansas and toured the Brown v. Board of Education National Historic Site – where, obviously, this picture was taken…by White House photographer Chuck Kennedy.

However many more words a picture like this may be worth, given the context – we’re done.

Disgusting.

Meet Phillip Mimouf-Wifarts, An Honest Politician

Gil Fulbright, a satirical candidate in the Kentucky race between Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and his Democratic challenger Alison Lundergan Grimes, is giving Americans a rare glimpse at an honest politician.

Enjoy:

Fulbright, the brainchild of the campaign finance reform group Represent.Us, is running his fake campaign in Kentucky because the McConnell/Grimes race is shaping up to be the most expensive Senate race in U.S. history.

Via Represent.Us:

The race between McConnell and Grimes is on pace to cost an unprecedented $100 million. Over three quarters of both candidate’s money is coming from outside of Kentucky, including a who’s who of big money special interests. When it costs that much to win an election, the candidates become dependent on their funders, not on the people they’re supposed to represent. As a result, the issues that matter to the people go unsolved.

In order to raise awareness about the electoral corruption that affects Americans of all political affiliations, Gil will be inserting himself in the Kentucky race by renting billboards and TV ads and crashing campaign events in his tour bus. Unfortunately, he won’t actually appear on the ballot.

  • Texas Governor Rick Perry declined an official White House offer to greet President Barack Obama when he lands at Austin’s airport Wednesday.

  • A Federal appeals court ruled Monday that young adult illegal immigrants whom President Obama has given tentative permission to be in the country — so-called “dreamers” — are also entitled to driver’s licenses and ordered Arizona to issue them. The ruling comes while the government is debating policy about a new wave of illegal immigrant children who are surging across the border in Texas, overwhelming Federal authorities’ ability to handle them. Source: The Washington Times…
  • Breitbart Texas has learned that Federal agents plan to arrive in Murrieta, Calif. on Monday with riot gear to ensure that the next busload of illegal immigrants makes it to its destination, a housing facility that protesters so far have blocked the buses from reaching.

  • Harry Reid is one of 100 senators, but so far in 2014, he’s been responsible for one-third of all the amendments proposed on the Senate floor — a number that underscores just how much one man has come to dominate the legislative process.

Boehner (R-Ohio) or even President Obama, it is Mr. Reid, a Nevada Democrat in his eighth year as majority leader, who has the most single-handed power to shape what gets done and what falls to the wayside in Washington.

Reid: Undoing Hobby Lobby Ruling A Top Democrat Priority

Speaking from the Senate floor Monday, Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) included undoing the Supreme Court’s recent ruling allowing some employers with religious objections to opt out of Obamacare’s contraception mandate on a list of Democratic legislative priorities.

“We have so much to address over the coming weeks,” Reid said, before running through a list of upcoming legislation that will pass through the Senate in coming weeks.

Among the Democrats’ legislative priorities, according to Reid, are securing emergency funding to deal with the unaccompanied minors flowing across the southern border, renewing the charter for the Export-Import Bank and allocating monies for the highway trust fund.

“We’re going to do something about the Hobby Lobby legislation we need to correct,” Reid continued.

Shortly after the SCOTUS ruling in Burwell v. Hobby Lobby, Congressional Democrats began working on a plan to undermine the Judicial Branch’s input.

Washington Democratic Senator Patty Murray, the fourth-ranking Democrat in the Senate, is heading up the left’s efforts to undo the ruling.

“Since the Supreme Court decided it will not protect women’s access to health care, I will,” she said last week.
