With 1,600 military “advisers” on the ground in Iraq, 2,300 of our troops being deployed to the Middle East as a “special purpose marine air ground task force,” and ongoing airstrikes being conducted in Iraq and Syria against ISIS’s jihadist army, it is absolutely stunning that our military personnel are NOT eligible for certain military medals.
Why? Because the Obama Administration refuses to call our fight against ISIS terror a military campaign.
It’s not only outrageous; it’s insulting to the brave men and women our Commander-in-Chief has put in harm’s way, has sent into a war zone, to defend freedom.
Make no mistake; ISIS is at war with America. They are slaughtering Christians.

Of course they didn’t. Who thought they would? This is precisely what amnesty shills have in mind when they demand “due process” for illegals. You’re detained, you’re given a date to meet with immigration agents or appear before an immigration judge to decide whether you’ll be deported, and then you’re sent on your merry way into the United States — never to be seen by the state again. The point of “due process” is to give illegals an easy way to avoid the process. DHS understands this.
So rest easy. Our immigration system is working exactly the way it’s supposed to.
An official with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement revealed that about 70 percent of immigrant families the Obama administration had released into the U.S. never showed up weeks later for follow up appointments.
The ICE official made the disclosure in a confidential meeting at its Washington headquarters with immigration advocates participating in a federal working group on detention and enforcement policies. The Associated Press obtained an audio recording of Wednesday’s meeting and separately interviewed participants.
On the recording obtained by the AP, the government did not specify the total number of families released into the U.S. since October. Since only a few hundred families have already been returned to their home countries and limited U.S. detention facilities can house only about 1,200 family members, the 70% figure suggests the government released roughly 41,000 members of immigrant families who subsequently failed to appear at federal immigration offices.
The same ICE official admitted that, of at least 860 people caught entering the U.S. since May and subsequently slapped with an order of final deportation, 14 showed up to be deported. Let me stress, in case the boldface above didn’t catch your attention, you’re not supposed to know any of this.

(Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton issued a statement today about the pending retirement of U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder:
It is no coincidence that Holder’s resignation comes on the heels of another court ruling that the Justice Department must finally cough up information about how Holder’s Justice Department lied to Congress and the American people about the Operation Fast and Furious scandal, for which Eric Holder was held in contempt by the House of Representatives. Over the past several months, Judicial Watch also exposed how Holder’s Justice Department was implicated in the IRS scandal and how Justice Department lawyers helped defend the illegal stonewall that kept secret key material related to Benghazi.
The disgraced Holder’s exit is past due accountability for Holder’s Fast and Furious lies, and I hope it brings some solace to the family of U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry and the hundreds of innocent Mexicans likely killed thanks to the Holder Justice Department’s scheme that armed the murderous Mexican drug cartels.
Requesting to carry a urban youth equalizer is not a valid request in DC. Update to a previous story.
The District of Columbia passed one of the strictest concealed carry laws in the nation Tuesday, calling for 16 hours of training, “good reason” be proven for consideration, and a host of other restrictions.
The measure, outlined in a 21-page bill, comes in an effort to comply with a federal court order that struck down the District of Columbia’s ban on handguns outside of the home. The 90-day stay agreed to by U.S. District Judge Frederick J. Scullin Jr. is set to run out Oct. 22.
“While I would prefer that we did not have to change our laws to allow the carrying of concealed weapons by civilians, this bill ensures that we will be able to meet the requirements of the Constitution while maintaining the maximum amount of safeguards possible to protect our residents, visitors, workers and public-safety officers,” D.C. Democratic Mayor Vincent Gray said in a statement Tuesday.
The bill, dubbed the License to Carry a Pistol Temporary Amendment Act of 2014, passed the 13-member D.C. City Council by unanimous vote. Modeled after restrictive “may-issue” laws in effect in Maryland and New Jersey, an applicant for a concealed carry permit in Washington D.C. would be required to meet the same strict requirements already established to register a firearm in the District.
These include background and fingerprint tests, a firearms safety course followed by an exam, as well as a vision certification. Added to the process would be an interview and a mandated 16-hour training course administered by a firearms instructor certified by the metro police chief. [...]
Should an applicant be issued the two-year permit, the places they are valid in the 68-square mile city is very limited. The new legislation includes a list of 14 separate areas and circumstances in which a permit holder is prohibited from carrying. Besides the streets near the White House and buildings under the control of the District, concealed carry is forbidden at child care facilities, any private residence unless it has been specifically allowed by the owner, stadiums, schools and universities, on public transportation, at venues where alcohol is served and within a 1,000 feet of any of dignitary or demonstration in a public place.

There is no country in the world in which a sociopathic thug does not stand to get himself killed if he attacks a police officer. Yet Obama, representing the United States before the United Nations today, saw fit to twist the events in Ferguson into leftist propaganda with which to berate America:
Note that at the end he gets in yet another dig at the country’s allegedly flawed founding. Obama is no fan of the Constitution.
I cannot imagine anything an American could do that would be more disgusting than voting for this character not once but twice. A lot of people have a lot to make up for.
