Senate Democrats Vote to Pay Cash Benefits to Illegal Immigrants

Powerline

The Treasury Department Inspector General for Tax Administration has repeatedly warned that illegal immigrants are collecting billion of dollars in refundable tax credits to which they are not legally entitled. This outrageous situation can be corrected rather easily, by requiring tax filers to supply a valid Social Security number in order to claim the Additional Child Tax Credit. Today in the Senate Budget Committee, Jeff Sessions proposed an amendment that would do exactly that, thereby saving American taxpayers billions of dollars that are flowing improperly to illegal aliens.

Incredibly, the ten Democrats on the committee voted in lockstep to keep the illegal money flowing. It is hard to believe, but you can see it for yourself:

It is hard to imagine a motive other than sheer perversity for the Democrats’ votes. If there was any doubt in your mind, this places beyond dispute the fact that Democrats are on the side of illegal immigrants, and are hostile to the interests of American citizens.

Pentagon loses track of $500 million in weapons, equipment given to Yemen

Jihad Watch

There are “fears that the weaponry, aircraft and equipment is at risk of being seized by Iranian-backed rebels or al-Qaeda, according to U.S. officials.” Combine this with the weapons Obama gave to “moderate rebels” in Syria that are now being used by the Islamic State, and the U.S. has provided weapons to a significant segment of the global jihad.

30,000 More Criminal Aliens Released By DHS; Now Over 60,000 Let Free In Past Two Years…

Isn’t this wonderful…

Via Washington Times:

Federal immigration officers released another 30,000 immigrants with criminal records last year, following the 36,000 it released in 2013, the government announced Wednesday — though it promised to take steps to cut down on the problem.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the agency that handles detention and removal of illegal immigrants, said it will no longer allow overcrowding to be the main reason a dangerous illegal immigrant is released, and will require a top supervisor to approve the cases of any serious criminals that officers want to release.

Overall, ICE released 30,558 criminal aliens in fiscal 2014, which is down from the 36,007 criminals released a year before.

The 2013 releases prompted an outcry, and the latest news that the releases continue is likely to renew the calls for ICE to get a handle on its actions.

New ICE Director Sarah R. Saldana said the number “still concerns me.”

“I am determined to continue to take every possible measure to ensure the public’s safety and the removal of dangerous criminals,” she said in announcing the new steps.

White House Office Planning To Delete Federal Transparency Regulation That Subjects It To FOIA Requests…

The most transparent admin ever is back at it!

Via USA Today:

WASHINGTON — The White House is removing a federal regulation that subjects its Office of Administration to the Freedom of Information Act, making official a policy under Presidents Bush and Obama to reject all requests for records to that office.

The White House said the clean-up of FOIA regulations is consistent with court rulings that hold that the office is not subject to the transparency law. The office handles, among other things, White House record-keeping duties like the archiving of e-mails.

But the timing of the move raised eyebrows among transparency advocates, coming on National Freedom of Information Day and during a national debate over the preservation of Obama administration records. It’s also Sunshine Week, an effort by news organizations and watchdog groups to highlight issues of government transparency.

“The irony of this being Sunshine Week is not lost on me,” said Anne Weismann of the liberal Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, or CREW.

BOMBSHELL: Muslim Brotherhood Operative Used Hillary’s Email Server

Conservative Tribune

Hillary Clinton’s email scandal is burning out of control like an unchecked forest fire and it doesn’t appear that relief is on the way anytime soon.

According to Stephen Hayes, a senior writer at the Weekly Standard, two of Clinton’s top aides had access to and used her personal email account while they were all employed at the State Department.

He specifically mentioned Clinton’s trusted aide for twenty years, Huma Abedin, a woman with known ties to the Muslim Brotherhood.

As most of our readers know, one of the Muslim Brotherhood’s core objectives is to, “destroy Western civilization from within.”

Having access to the Secretary of State’s personal email correspondence with leading government officials around the world is certainly a good way to begin that process.

Hayes’ main question concerning Abedin’s access to Clinton’s account was if they were discussing federal business between personal accounts, containing classified information, including critical information about Benghazi.

Politics as the continuation of corruption by other means

Family Security Matters

_ BOEHNER-PELOSI-

Prior to the 2014 mid-term elections, Reince Priebus, the chairman of the Republican National Committee claimed it’s “un-American” for Barack Obama to consider implementing an executive amnesty for millions of illegal aliens across the country.

Priebus said: “We will do everything we can to make sure it doesn’t happen: Defunding, going to court, injunction. You name it. It’s wrong. It’s illegal. And for so many reasons, and just the basic fabric of this country, we can’t allow it to happen and we won’t let it happen. I don’t know how to be any stronger than that. I’m telling you, everything we can do to stop it we will.”

Given what has transpired since the election, how eagerly the Republican leadership capitulated, if not enthusiastically facilitated the funding and implementation of Obama’s “illegal” executive amnesty; one can easily conclude that Priebus must have known what he was saying was not true or he was completely out of touch with the plans of the Republican Congressional leadership.

I think he was lying to get votes.

Why is John Boehner Still in Office in Violation of the Ohio State Constitution?

Freedom Outpost
We all know that Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-OH) is a compromised man and that he has been an accomplice to much of the corruption that we see going on today in Washington under Barack Obama. However, something that seems to have eluded the people of Ohio is that John Boehner is in Congress illegally, at least according to the Ohio Constitution.
