US Jacks Up Exit Fee For Those Renouncing Citizenship

CFP

Just like the recent rise of business inversions — moving business HQ abroad — the United States has seen an uptick (up 221%) in Americans renouncing their citizenship. The elephant in the room in both these cases is taxes: both high taxes and burdensome tax compliance in foreign jurisdictions.

Instead of facing the problems directly, the Obama Administration has resorted to punitive measures. The shame and blame tactic of calling out businesses who wish to relocate as “unpatriotic” was undignified. Perhaps realizing that using the same strategy with individuals would be even less well received, they went the more quiet, direct route: yesterday, the State Department announced their interim final rule that raises the fee for renouncing citizenship from $450 to $2,350.

Harry Reid’s Old College Just Kicked His Name Off the Buildings

To begin with, he has been widely mocked for his assertion that America’s southern border is secure, despite the tens of thousands of illegal immigrants that have poured into the country since last fall.

To make matters worse, his name has become a rallying cry all across the country–for people who want to fire him as majority leader by electing Republicans to the Senate. And if that weren’t enough, it looks like those Republicans are going to succeed. Now, to add insult to injury, Harry Reid’s own alma mater, Southern Utah University, is distancing itself from the Democrat senator in accordance with the wishes of his constituents.

The ISIS Threat to the United States, in Six Sentences

National Review

Let’s make this simple, shall we?

1. Al-Qaeda carried out the deadliest attack on American soil in American history and the most devastating foreign attack against an American city since the British occupied and burned Washington during the War of 1812.

2. ISIS is more brutal than al-Qaeda.

3. ISIS has more financial resources than al-Qaeda.

4. ISIS controls more territory — and possesses more firepower – than al-Qaeda.

5. ISIS has seized uranium in sufficient quantities to make a radiological weapon, a dirty bomb.

6. The leader of ISIS declared to his former American captors, “See you in New York,” and ISIS militants have pledged to raise the black flag of jihad over the White House.

In other words, ISIS is more capable in every way than the terrorists that hit America so hard on 9/11. Pinprick strikes weren’t enough to stop a much weaker Osama bin Laden. They will not be enough to stop a much stronger Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.

Imminent Terrorist Attack Warning By Feds on US Border

Judicial Watch

Islamic terrorist groups are operating in the Mexican border city of Ciudad Juarez and planning to attack the United States with car bombs or other vehicle born improvised explosive devices (VBIED). High-level federal law enforcement, intelligence and other sources have confirmed to Judicial Watch that a warning bulletin for an imminent terrorist attack on the border has been issued.  Agents across a number of Homeland Security, Justice and Defense agencies have all been placed on alert and instructed to aggressively work all possible leads and sources concerning this imminent terrorist threat.

Specifically, Judicial Watch sources reveal that the militant group Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria (ISIS) is confirmed to now be operating in Juarez, a famously crime-infested narcotics hotbed situated across from El Paso, Texas. Violent crimes are so rampant in Juarez that the U.S. State Department has issued a number of travel warnings for anyone planning to go there. The last one was issued just a few days ago.

Intelligence officials have picked up radio talk and chatter indicating that the terrorist groups are going to “carry out an attack on the border,” according to one JW source.  “It’s coming very soon,” according to this high-level source, who clearly identified the groups planning the plots as “ISIS and Al Qaeda.” An attack is so imminent that the commanding general at Ft. Bliss, the U.S. Army post in El Paso, is being briefed, another source confirms. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) did not respond to multiple inquiries from Judicial Watch, both telephonic and in writing, about this information.

Terrorism Expert Just Confirmed Our Worst Fears About Barack H. Obama

Conservative Tribune

After almost six years of his presidency, it’s clear that Barack Obama does what he wants to do with little regard for Congress, the Constitution, or even the law.

The president has openly defied the Republican House and dared them to do anything about it. He has skirted the Constitution so often that even liberal commentators are beginning to wake up to the danger his imperial presidency poses. He’s even prepared to bypass the Senate–which is controlled by Democrats of his own party.

And, according to the nonpartisan Government Accountability Office, he violated federal law when he failed to notify Congress of his trade of five Taliban terrorists for the accused Army deserter Bowe Bergdahl.

The GAO says that the administration also broke the law by using funds it did not have to pay for the trade,

Now Robert Spencer of Jihad Watch says the reason for this president’s disregard for the law and Constitution is clear. President Obama will do “everything he needs to do to give the jihadis what they want,” he says.
