Senate Democrats Put Partisan Politics Over Women’s Health, Nation’s Veterans

From Senator Mitch McConnell:


Senator McConnell spoke on the Senate floor regarding Senate Democrats voting to block important bipartisan funding measures to address Zika and support veterans.

June 292016

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell made the following remarks on the Senate floor today regarding Senate Democrats voting to block important bipartisan funding measures to address Zika and support veterans:
“Let me read you some headlines, ‘Senate Democrats block Zika agreement ahead of recess,’ ‘Senate Dems Block House Zika Funding.’ And here’s what that last article goes on to say, ‘Senate Democrats…blocked a critical funding measure needed to combat the spreading Zika virus, a move that will now make it impossible for Congress to send legislation to President Obama before July 4.’
“Democrats are working hard to spin this, but families don’t want excuses, they want action.
“Yesterday, Senate Democrats listened to the demands of a partisan special interest group and turned their backs on women's health and fighting Zika.
“First, they demanded congressional action on Zika. Then, in the midst of mosquito season, Democrats chose partisan politics over $1.1 billion in critical funds to protect pregnant women and babies from Zika — after Democrats voted for the same $1.1 billion level of funding last month.
“Yesterday, Senate Democrats listened to the demands of a partisan special interest group and turned their backs on supporting our veterans.
“First, they demanded more funding for veterans. Then, just before the Fourth of July, Democrats chose partisan politics over significantly increasing resources for veterans’ health care.
“In the coming days Democrats will hear from constituents back home who want to know what they’re doing to keep them safe from the threat of Zika and what they're doing to support our veterans. Democrats will have to explain why they chose not to do their job and instead blocked funding for the Zika crisis and our nation’s heroes.
“I’ve moved to reconsider the legislation, and we’ll give them a chance to get this right for the American people after the Fourth of July.”

The Terror Attack in Istanbul

From Senator Mitch McConnell:


Senator McConnell made the following remarks on the Senate floor regarding the terror attack in Istanbul, Turkey.

June 292016

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell made the following remarks on the Senate floor today regarding the terror attack in Istanbul, Turkey:
“Yesterday, our NATO ally Turkey suffered a devastating terror attack at Istanbul’s main airport that quickly brought to mind ISIL’s attack in Brussels earlier this year.
“We do not yet know if this attack was launched by ISIL or the PKK, but we do know that our intelligence community will do all it can to help the Turks combat terrorism and defeat this threat.
“As CIA Director John Brennan reminded us all earlier this month, ‘...despite all of our progress against ISIL on the battlefield and in the financial realm, our efforts have not reduced the group’s terrorism capability and global reach.’
“In recent days Turkey has taken diplomatic steps to improve bilateral relations with Russia and Israel, and now the United States must extend its hand to our NATO partners and assure them that we will stand with them in the face of this attack, and work together to defeat ISIL.”

Sen. Cruz Issues Statement on Palestinian Terrorist Attack in Israel

June 30, 2016

  |  

202-228-7561

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) today issued the following statement in response to the horrific murder of a 13-year-old American girl at her home in Israel at the hands of a Palestinian terrorist: 
“Early Thursday morning, a Palestinian terrorist broke into the home of a family in Kiryat Arba. He stabbed to death a 13-year-old innocent girl named Hallel Yaffa Ariel, a U.S. citizen, who was sleeping in her bed. The terrorist also wounded a 31-year-old security guard,” Sen. Cruz said.
“It is time for the United States to hold the Palestinian leadership accountable for their continuous incitement of these attacks and for sustaining a culture of hatred where the murder of Jews is celebrated, where terrorists are glorified and praised as ‘martyrs,’ and where jailed terrorists and their families are given monthly salaries as a reward for their atrocities.
“This attack, just like the attack in the Orlando nightclub, was not random violent extremism. It was the same radical Islamic terrorism that has been targeting innocents from San Bernardino to Brussels. We have to identify it clearly, develop an effective strategy to fight it, and partner with our allies to put an end to it.
“My thoughts and prayers are with Israel and the victims’ families.”

Sen. Cruz Issues Statement on Deadly Act of Terror in Istanbul

June 28, 2016

  |  

202-228-7561

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) today issued the following statement in response to the horrific terrorist attack at Turkey’s largest airport: 
“Yet again, ISIS has demonstrated the deadly determination of radical Islamic terrorists to attack all those who do not share their ideology, even in an overwhelmingly Muslim majority country like Turkey,” Sen. Cruz said. “This is the same vicious enemy that has attacked innocents in recent weeks from Tel Aviv to Paris to Orlando to Somalia, and which has once again targeted a major international airport where citizens of any given country or religion might be victims.
“We have to recognize this enemy for what it claims to be, which is a radical Islamic movement to violently impose their totalitarian Sharia law on the globe. Just today, I chaired a hearing to assess the Obama administration’s consistent effort to scrub any reference to radical Islamic terrorism and to pretend that the threat does not exist. It should be the number one obligation of the Commander-in-Chief to acknowledge our enemies and direct our resources to stopping them.”

Inhofe Statement on House Investigation Report on Benghazi Attack

From Senator Jim Inhofe:


Inhofe Statement on House Investigation Report on Benghazi Attack


WASHINGTON – U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.), senior member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, released the following statement praising the Select Committee on Benghazi’s Majority investigative report published today:
“The 800 pages of the Benghazi report released by the House confirms what I have been saying all along – the Obama administration ignored red flags ahead of the deadly attack on our consulate and they deliberately lied to the American people about who was behind the attack. With this report, the American people can see that calls to this administration went unanswered not just once but several times. It went unanswered in August 2012 when State Department security officers warned that the Benghazi consulate could not withstand a coordinated attack. It went unanswered on Sept. 4, 2012, when Ambassador Stevens noted Libyan officials introduced a ‘state of Maximum alert’ in Benghazi and again on Sept. 9 when Ambassador Stevens requested additional security during his visit. It went unanswered the night of the attack when Ambassador Stevens placed a call for help, saying, ‘We are under attack. We are under attack.’ And it went unanswered in the days following when the Obama administration refused to call this horrific, deadly event a terrorist attack. While Sec. Hillary Clinton was telling Egypt’s prime minister the next day that, ‘it was a planned attack – not a protest,’ Susan Rice continued to shift blame to a YouTube video that had a mere 50,000 views prior to her drawing attention to it. During my time as Ranking Member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, I heard from national security leaders in the Obama administration, to include Defense Sec. Leon Panetta, Gen. Martin Dempsey, Gen. Carter Ham and Director of National Intelligence James Clapper. All stated on the record that it was immediately apparent to them that the coordinated attack on Benghazi was unequivocally terrorism. 
“I applaud the hard work of Chairman Trey Gowdy and his staff on the Select Committee on Benghazi who are exposing the truth and laying all the facts before the American people to read and draw their own conclusions. I hope the outcome of this report will prevent a future administration from making the egregious errors leading up to the attack that resulted in the death of four American heroes and in the days following that spurred unrest throughout the region at other U.S. embassies. This should not and cannot happen again.”

CLINTON REFUGEE PLAN COULD BRING IN 620,000 REFUGEES IN FIRST TERM AT LIFETIME COST OF OVER $400 BILLION

From Senator Jeff Sessions:


JUN 27 2016


WASHINGTON— An analysis by the Subcommittee on Immigration and The National Interest finds the refugee plan of presumptive presidential nominee Hillary Clinton could cost hundreds of billions of dollars. 
Presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton has announced her desire to admit at least 65,000 refugees from Syria – on top of the existing refugee flow already entering the United States. What Clinton has not explained, however, is that in addition to the clear national security implications related to accepting more refugees, there are massive financial costs that would be borne by federal, state, and local governments.‎
Assuming Clinton's desire to bring in 65,000 Syrian refugees is in addition to the Obama Administration's current goal of admitting 10,000 this fiscal year (out of 85,000 total refugees), that would amount to an increase of 55,000 refugees. ‎55,000 on top of 85,000 totals 140,000 refugees. The Obama Administration's target for FY 2017 is actually 100,000 refugees, meaning that adding 55,000 refugees to that would result in 155,000 refugees each year.  Due to statutory flaws in our Refugee Admissions Program, the number could be as high as Hillary Clinton desires. Assuming her goal is to admit 155,000 refugees each year during a hypothetical first term in office, a Clinton Administration would admit at least 620,000 refugees in just four years – a population roughly the size of Baltimore.
Although some have attempted to say that the ‎cost of the Refugee Admissions Program is encapsulated in the annual budget provided to the Department of State and the Department of Health and Human Services for refugee resettlement, the actual costs are exponentially greater – as the annual budget for refugee resettlement does not include costs related to Medicaid, Temporary Assistance for Needy Families, Supplemental Security Income, and other programs, as the Obama Administration admits. Nor does that budget include the costs imposed on state and local governments for social services. Furthermore, that budget does not include the costs of future benefits use after refugees become lawful permanent residents and citizens. The true lifetime cost of admitting a single refugee must include an accounting of all benefits received by that refugee - at the federal, state, and local levels, and over the course of that‎ refugee's lifespan. Any other calculation is akin to saying that the total cost of owning a new car is encapsulated in the down payment.
‎Undoubtedly, the resulting costs of admitting the refugees under Clinton’s plan will be enormous. Robert Rector at the Heritage Foundation has estimated that the total lifetime cost of admitting 10,000 refugees is $6.5 billion. This estimate encompasses costs to taxpayers at the federal, state, and local levels. ‎Using Mr. Rector’s numbers as a baseline, admitting 155,000 refugees in one year would result in a total lifetime cost to the taxpayers of $100,750,000,000. If those levels were sustained over the course of four years – a hypothetical first term in office – the lifetime cost to the taxpayers according to Mr. Rector’s analysis would be $403 billion.
Importantly, Mr. Rector’s numbers reflect an estimate of the net taxpayer cost for admitting a defined number of refugees to the United States. As such, they do not account for aliens granted asylee status in the United States (approximately 25,000 are granted asylee status every year), nor do they account for the fact that refugees will be able to – and do – bring in additional family members after being admitted to the United States. Indeed, if an individual refugee’s spouse or unmarried children were not admitted at the same time as the refugee, they are eligible to “follow-to-join” and be admitted to the United States for two years after the individual refugee’s admission. One year after being admitted to the United States, refugees are eligible to adjust to Lawful Permanent Resident status (i.e. obtain a “green card”), enabling them to petition for additional family members. And assuming that a refugee becomes a Lawful Permanent Resident, he or she is further eligible to naturalize five years after being admitted to the United States, enabling them to bring in additional relatives. Thus, the total cost of admitting a certain number of refugees in any given year could be even higher than Mr. Rector predicts.

Sen. Cruz Issues Statement on Supreme Court’s Decision to Strike Down Texas HB 2 Provisions

RULING ENDANGERS WOMEN’S HEALTH AND SAFETY

June 27, 2016

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) today issued a statement in light of the Supreme Court’s ruling on Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt, a case examining Texas HB 2, which established health and safety standards for abortion providers and facilities. The Supreme Court reversed the Fifth Circuit’s decision, ultimately striking down provisions of Texas HB 2.
“The Supreme Court’s ruling in Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt is profoundly disappointing,” Sen. Cruz said. “Texas enacted HB 2’s commonsense health standards to ensure that women receive safe care. 
“Unfortunately, the Supreme Court sided with abortion extremists who care more about providing abortion-on-demand than they do protecting women’s health.
“This decision will not silence our fight to protect the most helpless and innocent among us, nor will we cease our efforts to protect women from an abortion industry that prioritizes profit margins over improving the safety and health of Texas women. We will continue to stand resolutely to defend unborn life because we know that every life is a gift from God, and without life there is no liberty.”
In February, Sen. Cruz led a broad coalition in filing an amicus brief with the Supreme Court in support of Texas HB 2.

EU-Länder schieben ab, Deutschland nimmt auf

From Prof. Dr. Jörg Meuthen:




Deutschland hat in den ersten Monaten von 2016 fast fünfmal so viele Flüchtlinge aufgenommen wie abgeschoben. 

Zum ersten Mal schieben EU-Staaten mehr Migranten nach Deutschland ab als umgekehrt. Schlimmer noch: Deutschland versucht in den meisten Fällen erst gar nicht, Ankommende in einen Durchreisestaat zurückzuführen, so, wie es das Dublin-Abkommen eigentlich vorsieht.

Andere EU-Länder haben da weniger Hemmungen, vor allem Schweden schickt seine Flüchtlinge gern nach Deutschland zurück. Und hier bleiben sie dann auch, weil unsere Politiker nicht gewillt sind, konsequent zu handeln.

Zeit für Veränderung! Zeit für die #AfD!

Who said what after Brexit

Some let out screams of joy, others held their heads in their hands, while some just shrugged their shoulders. Here are some of the reactions from the people who matter after the UK voted to leave the European Union.

Why Do Conservatives Own Guns?

From Abolish the IRS:





People Are Funny

From The Pragmatic Libertarian:




The whole #Brexit kerfuffle reminds me of the greatest of all political paradoxes: Those who despise and distrust large, multi-national corporations, are usually the same people who want their governments to be, (ironically), the largest multi-national corporations of them all. 

They hate McDonalds, and prefer their locally-sourced boutique burger, but have no problems with Washington D.C. or Brussels regulating every aspect of their cradle to grave existence. No one ever held a gun to their heads and forced them to buy a Big Mac or an iPhone at their local Walmart. But they're OK with distant, faceless, unelected bureaucrats writing regulations that control every waking moment of their day -- what it will cost them, and how much of their day must be spent working on behalf of countless others -- deserving, or not.

And they gladly do so . . . at the point of a gun.

For them, the bigger the government, the better. The bigger the company, the worse. Yet, only one of those two constructs can force you to buy their services, fine you if you don't, imprison you if you refuse, and kill you if you resist. By contrast, the other teaches their employees to say, "Thank you, and have a nice day," as you freely leave their premises, having voluntarily made the decision to go there in the first place -- and if you choose not to buy anything: no fines, no subpoenas, no SWAT team at your front door.

That love for big, bigger and biggest government, and irrational hatred of a company they're not even forced to patronize, is a mystery that never ceases to boggle my mind.

It was a sight to be seen!

Gilad Shalit

From Israel Defense Forces:




10 years ago today, Gilad Shalit was a 19-year-old corporal serving in the IDF’s Armored Corps. On the morning of June 25, 2006, a group of terrorists infiltrated Israel from the Gaza Strip through an underground tunnel near the Kerem Shalom Crossing, where Gilad’s team was stationed with their tank. The terrorists ambushed Gilad’s team, killing two soldiers and wounding three. One of the wounded was Gilad, who was then captured by the Hamas terrorists and taken into Gaza.

Over the next five years, Gilad remained in captivity. His captors refused to reveal his location or allow the Red Cross to visit Gilad and give him the medical care he required according to international law. For 5 years, Gilad’s parents and siblings pleaded and protested for Gilad’s release. Hundreds of thousands of Israelis joined the Shalit family in their campaign, demanding to bring our soldier home. Their efforts turned into a nation-wide campaign that expanded beyond our borders and was joined by activists, government officials, and individuals from all over the world.

On October 18, 2011, as part of a prisoner exchange deal, Gilad was finally returned home. After his return, he was promoted to the rank of Sergeant 1st Class.
