Just Criminal: Obama Administration Refuse to Enforce Immigrations Laws … ICE Released 68,000 Illegal Immigrants with Criminal Convictions
How is it that Obamacare is the law of the land, yet Barack Obama refuses to enforce current immigration laws?
UNREAL … This is how the Obama administration protects the citizens of the United States? You know Barack, the legal ones! As reported at The Hill, in 2013 Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials released 68,000 illegal immigrants with criminal convictions back into the population. Instead of deporting these criminals, the Obama administration released 35% of the illegals with criminal records back into the general population. Barack Obama should be charged with a crime for this.
Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials last year released 68,000 illegal immigrants with criminal convictions, undercutting Democratic claims that President Obama has strictly enforced immigration laws.
An internal Department of Homeland Security document compiling statistics on arrests and deportations in 2013 showed that ICE agents encountered 193,357 illegal immigrants with criminal convictions but issued charging documents for only 125,478. More than 67,800 were released.
The data came from an end-of-year “Weekly Departures and Detention Report.”
The Center for Immigration Studies, a research group that favors stricter enforcement of immigration laws, estimates ICE agents released more than a third of illegal immigrants with criminal records they detained.
“ICE released 68,000 criminal aliens in 2013, or 35 percent of the criminal aliens encountered by officers.
As Breitbart further points out, this report comes out on the heels of a report from the office of Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) last week which found that only .08 percent of the aliens deported in 2013 were not serial immigration law violators or convicted of serious crimes.
Obama’s Chickens coming home to roost means American’s goose is cooked …
I would add it is more than a mere coincidence that everything that Obama has done in his six years in office has made the United States of America a weaker nation. whether it be domestic or foreign policy, Obama has done what many believe is irreparable damage to the US. One would almost say, it would be impossible to get so many things wrong. One might even say it was intentional.
It is impossible to dismiss as mere coincidence the Russian Bear’s invasion of Ukraine and the continuing mayhem of the Affordable Care Act. In their own ways, each reflects the full flowering of the policies of Barack Obama.
His chickens are coming home to roost, and what a mess they are making.
Obama’s sixth year in the White House is shaping up as his worst, and that’s saying something. He’s been in the Oval Office so long that it is obscene to blame his problems on George W. Bush, the weather or racism. Obama owns the world he made, or more accurately, the world he tried to remake.
Nothing important has worked as promised, and there is every reason to believe the worst is yet to come. The president’s casual remark the other day that he worries about “a nuclear weapon going off in Manhattan” inadvertently reflected the fear millions of Americans have about his leadership. Not necessarily about a bomb, but about where he is taking the country.
Tensions flare between North and South Korea …
North Korea is at it again. The exchange of fire into the Yellow Sea followed Pyongyang’s sudden announcement that it would conduct live-fire drills in seven areas north of the Koreas’ disputed maritime boundary.
North Korea fired 500 rounds of artillery shells over more than three hours, about 100 of which fell south of the sea boundary, South Korean Defense Ministry spokesman Kim Min-seok said. South Korea responded by firing 300 shells into North Korean waters, he said.
A day after raising the possibility of further nuclear tests, North Korea has engaged in provocative live-fire exercises near the South Korean maritime border, leading to an exchange of fire between the two neighbors.
Semi-official South Korean news agency Yonhap reported Monday that the North had begun the drill just after noon (local time). The Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS) confirmed that some North Korean ordnance landed in South Korean waters, and that the South responded with fire.
The JCS confirmed that the North Korean offshore military exercise began around 12:15 pm (local time) Monday, and said that “a part of North Korea’s shelling reached South Korean side of the NLL (Northern Limit Line) and we (South Korea) responded with K-9 self-propelled guns into the North Korean waters above NLL.”
The statement is in line with Yonhap’s report that the North fired “several” artillery shells, to which South Korean military responded with self-propelled artillery fire. The South Korean K-9 howitzers have a 24-mile (40-kilometer) range.
Could they finally have found missing Malaysia Flight 370?
It might just be the break that searchers have been looking for, have they finally found the needle in the middle of the Indian ocean? A crew on board a New Zealand military plane has spotted several objects in the Indian Ocean west of Perth. The sightings would need confirmation by ship, which is not expected until Saturday, according to the Australian Maritime Safety Authority.
17: 15 pm: New Zealand military plane spots ‘objects’ in Indian Ocean
Crew on board a New Zealand military plane has spotted several objects in the Indian Ocean west of Perth, reports BBC. Surveillance ships will likely reach the area by Saturday.
15: 45 pm: Our priority is to get to the debris sighted by satellites: Hussein
Malaysia Acting Transport Minister Hishammuddin Hussein said that the focus right now is to reach the debris sighted by the satellites so that it can be identified if the debris sighted is of MH370 or not.
He also said that Malaysia will follow all possible ways to find the ‘black box’ of the missing plane.
House Republicans Trey Gowdy (SC-R), Jim Jordan (OH-R) & Darrell Issa (CA-R) Hammer IRS Chief John Koskinen Over Stonewalling in the Tea Party Targeting Scandal Investigation … IRS Says It Could Take “Years” to Produce the Emails
Imagine what would happen if you told the IRS it would take years to produce the documents you were requesting?
Republican House members let loose yesterday on IRS Chief John Koskinen with regards to Lois Lerner’s emails and the investigation into the IRS scandal in targeting Conservative organizations and Tea Party groups vying for non-profit status. The IRS has to date refused to comply with the subpoena to produce all of former IRS employee, Lois Lerner’s emails. Issa repeated the threat to hold Koskinen in contempt of Congress if the documents are not produced to the committee.
A chief Republican inquisitor of the Internal Revenue Service tea party controversy hammered the new agency commissioner on Wednesday, accusing him of being more concerned with averting political fallout than cooperating with congressional probes.
House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa and IRS chief John Koskinen sparred over the pace in which the IRS is shipping documents to the panel, one of several probing the matter.
“Does a nonpartisan or nonpolitical agency withhold documents requested during a congressional investigation? The IRS does and did,” the California Republican said, calling the pace of document production “dismal.” “You’ve been more concerned with managing the political fallout.”
Rep. Gowdy Questions IRS Commissioner John Koskinen about IRS Targeting Scandal (Classic Gowdy video)
Rep. Trey Gowdy (SC-R) just shredded IRS Chief John Koskinen and stated to the IRS head, “I want the subpoena complied with and I want the subpoena complied with in a timely fashion.” Then Gowdy said, “whether or not you think we need something, or we outta have it, or we are on a wild goose chase, frankly I could care less what you think about that. Our subpoena is our subpoena. If you do not like it, move to quash it, otherwise comply with it!” Why is guy did not primary challenge establishment GOP candidate Lindsey Graham in SC puzzles me.
Rep. Jim Jordan Grills IRS Commissioner on Targeting Scandal: ‘We Don’t Want the Excuses Anymore’
Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) said at the hearing, “We don’t want the excuses anymore, You’re not working fast enough. It’s that simple.”
An IRS official said Wednesday that it could take years before the agency is able to turn over to Congress all documents pertaining to the improper targeting of conservative groups.
“What they want is something that’s going to take years to produce,” Internal Revenue Service Commissioner John Koskinen said during a House Oversight and Government Reform Committee hearing on Wednesday.
The commissioner’s remarks were made in response to specific questions asked by Republican lawmakers on the committee.
Republicans have accused the IRS of stonewalling their investigation by intentionally delaying the release of certain agency documents.
I will say again, can you just imagine if a party ever responded to the IRS in this manner in provided requested documentation? This is the reason why the IRS needs to go bye-bye and a flat or fair tax needs to be implemented. How can Congress have a lawful means to demand emails and yet the IRS stonewalls and does not comply. Then they are allowed, on the honor system, to provide the emails. Juxtapose that with the tax payer being audited is guilty until proven innocent and you have no right not to produce anything.
The IRS fears no consequences ever … this is the reason why such a tyrannical government agency has to be replaced. Never in a million years would The Founding Fathers ever have approved of such an entity.

Let’s make DC pork spender squeal like a pig!!!
Joni Ernst, a GOP candidate for the US Senate in Iowa has certainly made a splash on the scene with a memorable political ad. If you have not already watched it, please take a look at the video below. The Conservative Republican candidate promises to cut pork when she gets to Washington. What are her qualifications you ask? Joni Ernst grew up castrating hogs on an Iowa farm that’s how, so when she gets to DC, she will know how to cut pork. OUCH!!! Ernst promises to cut wasteful spending, repeal Obamacare and balance the budget. Sounds like exactly what is needed to turn things around in the Senate and save America. Joni Ernst and several other Republicans are vying for the open Iowa Senate seat of the retiring Democratic Sen. Tom Harkin.
“I grew up castrating hogs on an Iowa farm, so when I get to Washington, I’ll know how to cut pork.”
“My parents taught us to live within our means. It’s time to force Washington to do the same.”
Former Alaska governor and Republican VP nominee Sarah Palin is endorsing state Sen. Joni Ernst, a candidate in the Iowa Senate race, following Ernst’s tongue-in-cheek ad about castrating D.C. pork.The endorsement was made on Palin’s Facebook page:
“If Nebraska’s Deb Fischer can see through the bull in Washington, then Iowa’s Joni Ernst can help her cut through the pork,” Palin wrote. “Growing up on a hog farm in Southwest Iowa, Joni has taken her ‘pork cutting’ skills to the Iowa State Senate, where she has been a champion for life, small government, and lower taxes – voting for the largest tax cut in Iowa history.”
Posted alongside a picture of Ernst in uniform, Palin was paying homage to the TV ad Ernst released on Tuesday.
More from Real Clear Politics on the other GOP candidates vying for the nomination and missteps of Democrat leading candidate U.S. Rep. Bruce Braley, who was caught on camera at the closed-press event suggesting that Iowa Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley is unfit to become the Senate Judiciary Committee chairman.
Ernst is one of a half-dozen Republicans vying to take on U.S. Rep. Bruce Braley, the likely Democratic nominee, for the right to replace retiring Democratic Sen. Tom Harkin.
Braley has been considered the favorite but faced significant blowback this week over comments he made at a Texas fundraiser. The four-term congressman was caught on camera at the closed-press event suggesting that Iowa Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley is unfit to become the Senate Judiciary Committee chairman — should the GOP win control of the upper chamber — because he is a “farmer from Iowa who never went to law school.”
Braley later apologized for his remark, but Iowa Republicans seized upon it in an effort to portray the Democrat as being out of touch with the values of the farming-heavy state.
Democrat ‘Unhinged’ Insanity … Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid Blames Republicans For Russia Annexing Crimea
More proof Democrats are in serious trouble for the midterm 2014 elections … Senate Majority Leader Reid says Republicans are to blame for Russia’s take-over of Crimea.
Some people have no shame, add Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to that list. Sen. Harry Reid (NV-D) said Monday that Republicans helped Russia annex Ukraine’s Crimea. Hmm, where is the outrage from the MSM over such a slanderous accusation? What kind of an irresponsible foll must one be to make such a comment. However, Reid has been making such outrageous comments like these for years and been getting a free pass. A spokesman for Republican House Speaker John Boehner called Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid “unhinged”. That’s an understatement.
This is what passes as leadership in the US Senate? It is hard to believe this man gets reelected, let alone is the Senate Majority Leader. That needs to change in 2014, Wake up America!
We need to play the blame game to distract from Obamacare and our parties failed president …
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Monday that Republicans may have helped Russia annex Ukraine’s Crimean Peninsula in a surprisingly sharp attack ahead of a test vote on a bill authorizing more U.S. sanctions on Russia and $1 billion in loan guarantees to Ukraine.
Outlining the Senate’s agenda after a one-week recess, the Nevada Democrat said the first item would be the Ukraine bill that Republicans blocked just before lawmakers went on break. He urged Republicans to consider “how their obstruction affects United States’ national security as well as the people of Ukraine” and said their delay of any congressional action “sent a dangerous message to Russian leaders.”
“Since a few Republicans blocked these important sanctions last work period, Russian lawmakers voted to annex Crimea and Russian forces have taken over Ukrainian military bases,” Reid said. “It’s impossible to know whether events would have unfolded differently if the United States had responded to Russian aggression with a strong, unified voice.”
As the Lonely Conservative aptly points out, Dingy Harry failed to mention that the bill the GOP blocked would have given Russia more control over the International Monetary Fund.
In other news, Harry Reid blamed Republicans for the mudslides in Washington state, the disappearance of the Malaysia airline in the Indian ocean and the kidnapping of the Lindbergh’s baby.
Barack Obama & Vladimir Putin Phone Conversation on ‘The Tonight Show’ … Obamacare is a Joke in Russia, Too
Imagine a government forcing people to accept something that the majority of them don’t even want. In fact, what if 38.9% were in favor and 53.6% were against, or a -14.7% average of people were against what a government had forced on its people. Are we referring to Putin, Russia and Crimea? Hardly, we are talking about Barack Obama, Democrats and Obamacare. How bad is it when we can compare what Russia does to it’s citizens to that what those in power in America does to theirs?
From Jilly Fallon and The Tonight Show:
Obama - “Don’t you see what you’re doing though? You’re forcing people to accept something that the majority of them don’t even want.”
Putin – “Yes, in Russia we have word for this … Obamacare“.

Hillary Clinton’s Top Selling Point for 2016 Presidential Election is not Any Accomplishments, Its Being First Female President
What a resounding reason to qualify or vote for Hillary Clinton to be president in 2016 … Hmm, How did that same “being first” work out with Obama?
According to a recent Gallup poll, the “best or most positive” reason to vote for Hillary Clinton is that she would be the first female president. Huh? So after all the years of politics behind her, 18% said the best reason to vote for her is just because she would be the first woman president. Just curious America, how did that little social experiment work electing Barack Obama the first black president? Hmm? Just 9% said it would be because of Hillary’s experience and foreign policy experience [can you say Benghazi, Iran, Russia reset and Middle East burning], while just 3% said she was the most qualified and capable, and 3% said healthcare reform [how did Hillary Healthcare work out?] and 2% said because of the economy.
So all America has to look forward to is a Democrat 2016 campaign of “War on Women” as we have been through six years of anyone who dares say anything negative about Obama’s policies is a racist. Isn’t enough, enough?
However, “nothing” scored 27% as the “best or most positive” reason to vote for Hillary Clinton and another 22% had no opinion or no clue. I guess this can explain why so many DNC individuals can’t name one thing that she has done. How can some one who was first lady of Arkansas from 1983 – 1992, was the first day of the United States from 1993 – 2001 [remember a Hillary said in 1992, "I'm not sitting here, some little woman standing by my man, like Tammy Wynette." ... "Baking cookies and making tea (VIDEO)".], US Senator fro New York from 2001 – 2009, and Secretary of State from 2009 – 2013 and the greatest reason why she should be elected president is because she would be the first woman. ARE YOU KIDDING ME!!!
Seriously America, one of the main reasons why Barack Obama was elected president, other than GWB fatigue, a poor RINO Republican candidate and a poor economy was that he would be the first black president. That is of course if you discount Bill ‘Bubba’ Clinton. Wake the hell up!!! I do not care what party some one is from, your reason for voting for them can’t be because they are the first of anything. No one we can’t get qualified people in the White House.
