  • JOE SCARBOROUGH: I'm sorry, but this is asinine, this continued killing of women and children, in a way that appears to be indiscriminate, is asinine. It is bad. Of course its tragic for the Palestinian people, it is bad for the Israeli people.

    We will rue the day that this is happening every day. As much as we all hate Hamas, what is going to replace Hamas is going to be much worse. It’s going to be a radical Islamist group instead of a power-hungry, corrupt people that despise Israelis. This is such a nightmare that is unfolding. And the biggest nightmare is Hamas was on the run. The Arab states hate Hamas. And Israel has made them not only relevant again, but champions of the Palestinian people.

    ...

    They blew up a popular marketplace yesterday and they blew up a U.N. school where there were 17 warnings — 17. That is indiscriminate. You know what? We share Israel’s values a hell of a lot, a lot more than the people than they are bombing, but you know what? The United States of America — we cannot be associated with this if this continues. This is so bad, not only for the Israeli people, but for us.

  • House Speaker John A. Boehner was always expected to have trouble passing emergency funds for the crisis at the Southwestern border -- but Republican Sen. Ted Cruz made his job impossible.

    Cruz, the hard-line Texas Republican, has been working behind the scenes to stir up conservative opposition to a House GOP plan to approve $659 million to secure the border and handle the flow of 57,000 migrant youths.

    And it worked. Amid disarray, House GOP leaders canceled Thursday's vote after it was clear they did not have the votes.

    The senator's handiwork lighted up the telephone lines in the Capitol after an appearance on a tea party webinar. He further stoked opposition among House Republicans meeting privately over pizza on the eve of Thursday's vote.

    House GOP leaders bristled at the senator's interference on their turf. Rep. Pete King (R-N.Y.) said Cruz had "hijacked" the Republican Party. Democrats jokingly referred to "Speaker Cruz."

    Ultimately, Boehner was pressured into attaching a Cruz-inspired bill that would halt the administration's Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program giving 500,000 young immigrants legal status if they remain in school or join the military.

    Cruz had similar legislation in the Senate but was unable to get a vote in that chamber. With a push from Cruz, the effort shifted to the House, where the bill also would have blocked any future legalization programs President Obama has promised to deliver later this year.

    That's not the message Republicans want to send to Latino and immigrant voters on Congress' last day of business before the long August break for midterm election campaigning.

    US says Israeli attack on UN school in Gaza is 'unacceptable'

    54 minutes ago

    The attack on a UN-run school in Gaza by the Israeli military was "totally unacceptable and totally indefensible", the US has said.

    White House spokesman Josh Earnest told reporters that Israel has to "do more" to protect civilians.

    He was referring to an incident on Wednesday, when at least 16 people were killed when shellfire hit a UN-run school designated as a civilian shelter in the Jabaliya district of Gaza City.

    Israeli spokesman Mark Regev told the BBC earlier that Israel would apologise if it discovered it was responsible.

  • So their border solution is to tell Obama to use his pen and phone to govern, LOL you can't make up how stupid these people are, LOL

    WASHINGTON — In what has become a familiar problem for House Republicans, leadership pulled votes on controversial immigration legislation after it became clear they did not have the support of their own party to pass it.

    In a joint statement, GOP leaders said they would continue to work towards a solution and put the onus on President Obama to act on his own.

    "There are numerous steps the president can and should be taking right now, without the need for congressional action, to secure our borders and ensure these children are returned swiftly and safely to their countries," read the statement.

    The decision to reverse course on a $659 million emergency spending bill to address the surge of undocumented minors along the U.S. southwest border was an embarrassing end to the legislative agenda before the month-long August recess. The GOP bill would have also dispatched National Guard troops to the border and changed a 2008 law that will make it easier to return children home to Central America.

  • Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann

    The former 2012 presidential candidate claimed that Obama wants to bring tens of thousands of unaccompanied minors into the country to make them wards of the state and use them in medical experiments. She connected the border crisis to the right’s belief that foster children are being used for federally funded medical experiments.

  • LOL yeah the GOP sure made sure the VA was not properly funded, now scream it isn't fixed.

    They are now taking the same approach to border security, Obama asks for 3.7 billion for border security current GOP plan is less then 1 billion and they can't even agree on that. Then they will have another tantrum that Obama hasn't fixed the border. You can't make up how stupid these people are.

    VA benefits to expensive and would have increased the deficit, but now how about those tax cuts

    Senate Republicans blocked a $21 billion plan to build new VA clinics because they said it was too expensive, but today House Republicans advanced a $600 billion tax cut for business.
    Back in February, Senate Republicans blocked a bill that would have expanded veterans’ benefits, and built 27 new VA clinics and facilities over the next ten years, because they thought the bill was too expensive. Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) spoke for the group of 41 GOP obstructionists when he said, “This bill creates new veterans’ programs and it’s not paid for—it’s all borrowed money.”

    The veterans benefits bill would have cost $21 billion over ten years.

    Today, the House Ways and Means Committee advanced a bill that would give businesses a $600 billion tax cut. Democrats have been opposed to the Republican plan to add nearly $300 billion to the deficit without paying for it. According to The Hill, “As with the research tax break, Democrats said they generally supported the incentives considered by the committee. But none of them voted for any of the tax breaks, insisting they couldn’t get on board with clearing another slate of tax breaks that would add more than $300 billion to the deficit. In all, the dozen preferences approved by the Ways and Means panel over the last four weeks cost $600 billion over a decade.”


    $2.1 billion a year over ten years to provide better care for our veterans is too expensive, but $60 billion a year over the same time period is affordable as long as the money is going to the business sector. This is a case of blatant Republican hypocrisy. Republicans are refusing to pay for their tax cuts for business, but they have the nerve to tell people who fought and bled for their country that they can’t have better medical care.

    Veterans didn’t risk their lives so that the Koch brothers could have another tax cut. Republicans would rather take from veterans and

    U.S. Senate Republicans block veterans' health bill on budget worry
    BY RICHARD COWAN
    WASHINGTON Thu Feb 27, 2014 3:50pm EST

    (Reuters) - U.S. Senate Republicans blocked legislation on Thursday that would have expanded federal healthcare and education programs for veterans, saying the $24 billion bill would bust the budget.

    Even though the legislation cleared a procedural vote on Tuesday by a 99-0 vote, the measure quickly got bogged down in partisan fighting.

    Supporters said the measure would have brought the most significant changes in decades to U.S. veterans' programs. For example, it called for 27 new medical facilities to help a healthcare system that is strained by veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars.

    With Democrats pressing for passage this week, Senate Republicans, backed by their leader, Mitch McConnell, attempted to attach controversial legislation calling for possible new sanctions on Iran that President Barack Obama opposes.

    "The issue of Iran sanctions ... has nothing to do with the needs of veterans," complained Senate Veterans' Affairs Committee Chairman Bernard Sanders of Vermont, the main sponsor of the bill.

    Republicans also raised budget concerns, forcing another key procedural vote that ended up killing the bill. By a vote of 56-41, the Senate failed to waive budget rules that would have allowed the bill to proceed. Sixty votes were needed and 41 of the chamber's 45 Republicans voted against the waiver.

    The guys redoing my bluestone patio have found significant "rot" in the sub base and it is taking them a lot longer to complete the job. I am hoping they have it done for the fireworks party we have planned for this Saturday but if they are not finished I will blame Obama.

  • but on the other hand it turns out he controls the minds of the GOP, which is why he made them file suit against him and made them talk about impeachment, turns out he controls everything, I'm so confused?
    President Obama is using a Cold War-era mind-control technique known as "Delphi" to coerce Americans into accepting his plan for a United Nations-run communist dictatorship in which suburbanites will be forcibly relocated to cities. That's according to a four-hour briefing delivered to Republican state senators at the Georgia state Capitol last month.

    Chart: Almost Every Obama Conspiracy Theory Ever
    On October 11, at a closed-door meeting of the Republican caucus convened by the body's majority leader, Chip Rogers, a tea party activist told Republican lawmakers that Obama was mounting this most diabolical conspiracy. The event—captured on tape by a member of the Athens-based watchdog Better Georgia (who was removed from the room after 52 minutes)—had been billed as an information session on Agenda 21, a nonbinding UN agreement that commits member nations to promote sustainable development. In the eyes of conservative activists, Agenda 21 is a nefarious plot that includes forcibly relocating non-urban-dwellers and prescribing mandatory contraception as a means of curbing population growth. The invitation to the Georgia state Senate event noted the presentation would explain: "How pleasant sounding names are fostering a Socialist plan to change the way we live, eat, learn, and communicate to 'save the earth.'"
