    14 Since then we have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus, the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. 15 For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who in every respect has been tempted as we are, yet without sin. 16 Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.

Moronic Indiana Democrat State Representative Vanessa Summers Claims Republican’s 18-Month Old Son Is a Racist!

Allow me to share with you my own personal experience with this race-baiting Indiana state legislator.

A few years ago I was giving testimony before the Indiana State General Assembly on proposed legislation to stop the employment of ILLEGAL aliens in Indiana. This law was quite similar to the Arizona law, eventually receiving a similar fate.

About 10 minutes into my presentation, Rep. Vanessa Summers noisily stumbles in to the packed assembly carrying a large bag of McDonald’s Egg McMuffins, a coke and a cup of coffee. She sat her big fat ass into her front row desk, directly in front of me at the speakers podium, whereupon she immediately begins to inhale her food, one McMuffin after another with the relish and noise of a wood chipper.

She intentionally ingested her food in a manner meant to disrupt my presentation. Her open mouth mastication allowing food to drop on her desk was disgusting. Republican and Democrat colleagues were embarrassed by her conduct.

I am not surprised by her latest antics in the below article wherein she attempted to racebait a Republican State Representative with a claim that his 18 month old baby is a racist.

And these are the people we are supposed to trust a Constitutional Convention to? Not on my watch!
 


 

DAILY CALLER | An Indiana Democratic state representative made a shocking claim during a floor speech earlier this week when she said a Republican colleague’s 18-month-old toddler was scared of her because she’s black.

Rep. Vanessa Summers was debating the Religious Freedom Restoration Act on Monday when she speculated that Republican Rep. Jud McMillin’s young son is a fledgling racist.

“I have told Representative McMillin I love his little son, but he’s scared of me because of my color,” Summers speculated. “And that’s horrible.”

“It’s true,” Summers said in response to groans from the legislative body.

“And that’s something we’re going to work on. We’ve talked about it. And we’re going to work on it.”

“I asked him ‘please, introduce your child to some people of color so that he won’t live his life as a prejudiced person.’”

LISTEN:

Video of Summers’ cringeworthy remarks is also available.

McMillin responded to the attack, telling the Indianapolis Star that the incident was “unfortunate.”

“You’d like to think that we would have professional discussion on the House floor and certainly be able to avoid having 18-month-olds in the discussion,” McMillin said.

“I can tell you that if he reacted the same way he reacts with anybody brand new, he buries his head in his dad’s shoulder. Whoever it is, it’s what he does. He’s an 18-month-old kid; he’s in a new environment up here in the place like the Statehouse but doesn’t know anybody. I honestly don’t remember anything out of the ordinary.”

After Monday’s session, Summers stood by her comments recalling her first meeting with McMillin’s son.

“He looked at me like I was a monster and turned around and cried,” she told the Star. “And I told him you need to introduce your child to some people that are dark-skinned so he will not be scared.”

Immigration Agency Says Original Amnesty Still Approving Dreamers’ Applications

| The administration encouraged Dreamers Friday to keep signing up for President Obama’s amnesty, saying the original “deferred action” program he announced in 2012 remains in effect even though the expanded version from late last year has been halted by a federal court.

Immigration officials were trying to combat the bad press stemming from Mr. Obama’s loss in a federal court last month, when a judge halted the expanded amnesty, ruling the president broke the law in issuing his new policy.

Judge Andrew S. Hanen didn’t halt the 2012 amnesty, however, and U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services Director Leon Rodriguez said in a statement Friday that illegal immigrants who qualify under the original terms should still sign up for the program, known in government-speak as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA.

Cruz & Walker BOTH Refuse to Rule Out Legal Status for ILLEGAL Alien Invaders

Ted Cruz’s Campaign: He Hasn’t Ruled Out Legal Status For Illegals

HOT AIR | I’m tempted to accuse Team Walker of feeding this bit of oppo to MSNBC to take some heat off of their own rolling clusterfark on immigration. But I’m sure author Benjy Sarlin, a smart guy who follows this issue for the network, hit on it himself. (Wouldn’t Walker’s team have leaked it to Fox to maximize Cruz’s embarrassment among conservatives?) To a lefty, the tangle of GOP primary politics on amnesty must be irresistible: Why is Scott Walker taking a beating on the right for supporting legalization when Ted Cruz, Mr. Conservative, also supported legalization in the form of work permits as recently as 2013? How can Ted Cruz be the “anti-amnesty” candidate in the field when his position — at least as of two years ago — is basically indistinguishable from Walker’s and (gasp) Jeb Bush’s?


 

Walker Flip Flops Again on Immigration
Assures Private Dinner He Backs Amnesty

BY BRENDA WALKER | VDARE | Say one thing to the base, another thing to the donors. It’s the way the GOP operates. But it doesn’t work if your comments to the donors get out…

From Breitbart quoting the Wall Street Journal (where they are probably popping the champagne corks).

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker told a private dinner of New Hampshire Republicans this month that he backed the idea of allowing undocumented immigrants to stay in the country and to eventually become eligible for citizenship, a position at odds with his previous public statements on the matter.

As Dan Riehl puts it, “Given the history here, it may now be impossible to know precisely where Walker stands, with supporters left to assume the worst — that he’s just another open borders Republican — becoming the default across the conservative grassroots whose support he needs to win” [Scott Walker Endorses Path to Citizenship for Illegal Immigrants at Private GOP Dinner, Breitbart, March 26, 2015].

Well Ted Cruz seize on the opportunity? Well… he has his own problems on the issue.

Clinton Wiped Email Server Clean, Refuses to Turn It Over

WASHINGTON TIMES | Former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton has refused to turn her email server over to an independent third party and claims she has wiped the server clean, dealing a setback to the special investigative committee looking into the 2012 Benghazi terrorist attack, the probe said late Friday.

Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy said the whole House will have to decide what the next steps are in the push to pry information from Mrs. Clinton, but said she will likely have to appear and testify on her decision-making about her emails, setting up another dramatic showdown between the former first lady and her congressional critics.

“Not only was the secretary the sole arbiter of what was a public record, she also summarily decided to delete all emails from her server ensuring no one could check behind her analysis in the public interest,” Mr. Gowdy said in a statement excoriating Mrs. Clinton’s actions.

Mr. Gowdy said Mrs. Clinton’s response to his subpoena was to re-transmit several hundred pages of emails that the State Department has already turned over.

Rep. Elijah E. Cummings, the top Democrat on the Benghazi probe, said that proves Mrs. Clinton has already produced all of her official records concerning the terrorist attack.

“It is time for the committee to stop this political charade and instead make these documents public and schedule Secretary Clinton’s public testimony now,” he said.

Mrs. Clinton said at a press conference earlier this month that she culled through more than 60,000 emails from her time as secretary and decided about 30,000 of them were public records that should have been maintained. She said the rest were private messages relating to her daughter’s wedding or her yoga class schedule, and she didn’t keep those.

But Mr. Gowdy said Mrs. Clinton’s lawyers informed him Friday that she “unilaterally decided to wipe her server clean and permanently delete all emails” from it.

He said it wasn’t clear when Mrs. Clinton made the final decision, but he said it appeared to have happened after the State Department asked her to turn over her government business messages in late October.

Mrs. Clinton rejected use of a government-issued email account during her four years as secretary, first relying on an account she used while a senator and then later setting up an email server at her home in New York and using an account on that to conduct all of her business, both public and private.

She insists she followed the law, which at the time didn’t require officials to use government-issued accounts but did require them to turn over all official records to be stored. Mrs. Clinton didn’t turn over those records until last December, after the Benghazi probe noticed she had used a private email and requested those records from the State Department, which then asked Mrs. Clinton for them. The law doesn’t set a date for turning over records.

Open-records experts, however, question Mrs. Clinton’s designation of her server as private, saying it was set up in order to do government business, and so it and the emails on it arguably belong to the government.

Mrs. Clinton’s email practices have put the Obama administration in a difficult position. Obama lawyers have admitted in federal court that for years, they were not correctly performing open-records searches because they didn’t have her emails, but they say they are unilaterally going back and doing those searches now.

Harry Reid Finally Does Something Patriotic for America–Will Nancy Pelosi Be as Magnanimous?

It took him 30 years, but Democrat Harry Reid finally did something bordering on patriotic and good for America: The battered, bruised minority leader announced that he will NOT seek re-election in 2016!

As announced:

“Senator Harry Reid, the tough tactician who has led Senate Democrats since 2005, will not seek re-election next year, bringing an end to a three-decade congressional career that culminated with his push of President Obama’s ambitious agenda against fierce Republican resistance.

Mr. Reid, 75, who suffered serious eye and facial injuries in a Jan. 1 exercise accident at his Las Vegas home, said he had been contemplating retiring from the Senate for months. He said his decision was not attributable either to the accident or to his demotion to minority leader after Democrats lost the majority in November’s midterm elections.”

Whatever the real reason for Reid’s departure, the American people should rejoice in celebrating the long-overdue end to a career that was never based on serving the best interests of the American people. Rather, corruption and slavish dedication to leftist ideology made Harry Reid one of the fiercest supporting actors in Barack Obama’s tyrannical attempt to destroy America.

He will NOT be missed, except by legions of “stupid” Americans who share his vision for a bankrupt, defenseless 3rd-world America where borders and speaking English are regarded as racist bigotry!

America will certainly benefit from Reid’s departure and that of Barack Obama in 2016.

However, for the sake of political purity, we the people should rally around the idea of sending Democrat Nancy Pelosi on her merry way to whatever adventures still await her ruinous hand.

For instance, with the advancing age of Pope Francis, perhaps Pelosi could mount a campaign to be the first female, pro-abortion, pro-gay Pope in history?

After all, according to the former Shreiker of the House, she knows more about Catholic doctrine and divine will than Pope Francis and several of his predecessors combined!

And Pelosi just turned 75 on Thursday, just the right age for an out-of-touch lefty to retire to the loony bins of San Francisco, or in a more spiritual calling, to make the Catholic Church more responsive to the unmet needs of non-compliant sinners on the run!

With a little effort, Pelosi might do for the Catholic Church what she did so well for the US House, which is to make that body irrelevant, irreverent, and irresponsible.

Go Nancy! Please!

3 Articles From the Center for Immigration Studies 03.28.15


Constant Activity on the California Border
By John Wahala, March 27, 2015

The Center’s fifth annual border tour began in San Diego earlier this month. On our week-long itinerary we saw most of the California border, from both sides of the fence, and made it as far as Yuma, Ariz. In five trips, we have now seen almost the entire 1,993-mile southwest border, from Brownsville to the Pacific. These excursions are mere snapshots of a particular area, but we meet with enough people to get a sense of current trends. Our most recent trip underscored the ever changing nature of cross-border traffic and why managing it requires sustained political will and vigilance.


 
New Data Show Immigrant Gang Arrests
Disproportionately associated with the most violent Central American gangs

By Jessica Vaughan, March 27, 2015

Violent immigrant and transnational gangs such as MS-13, the Sureños, and 18th Street continue to present a significant public safety threat in many parts of the United States, according to arrest records released by ICE to the Center for Immigration Studies.

In 2013 (the most recent year available), ICE arrested significant numbers of gang members in California, Texas, Chicago, and the New York City and Washington, DC, metropolitan areas. Large concentrations also were arrested by ICE agents in Atlanta, Charlotte, and south Florida.

Video: The Monster in the Mountains

NEW YORKER | It’s been six months since forty-three students from the Ayotzinapa Normal School went missing in the town of Iguala, in Guerrero, one of Mexico’s poorest and most violent states. In the indigenous communities of La Montaña and the Costa Chica, where many of the students lived, the disappearances are only one example of the crime, corruption, and impunity that plague the region. As abel Herrara Hernandez, a human-rights activist, said, “Here in the mountains . . . you live with the demons.”

This short film, based on the work of the photographer Matt Black, shows how families of the missing are coping with the still unexplained loss of their loved ones, and how citizens are struggling to protect themselves, and to preserve hope.

View a slide show of Matt Black’s photographs from Guerrero. Black’s reporting was supported by a grant from the Pulitzer Center.

Bills to Loosen Gun Restrictions Among Terry Mcauliffe’s Vetoes

WASHINGTON TIMES | Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe announced on Friday that he vetoed legislation that would have limited the sharing of information on concealed handgun permit holders in a state database, one of 17 pieces of legislation passed during the 2015 legislative session he vetoed ahead of aSunday midnight deadline.

Mr. McAuliffe’s office said the bill, which would bar law enforcement officials in states without reciprocity agreements from accessing information on concealed handgun permit holders in the Virginia Criminal Information Network, could unnecessarily hamper criminal investigations in other states and put law enforcement officers at risk.

But Sen. Richard Stuart, Stafford Republican and sponsor of the measure, said in a statement that he was “shocked” that Mr. McAuliffe “chose not to stand with law-abiding Virginians who are being victimized when they travel in other states.”

Scott Walker Endorses Path to Citizenship for Illegal Immigrants at Private GOP Dinner

BREITBART | Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker may be on the verge of burning himself down before he actually gets started, given what is now becoming something of a circus regarding his actual stance on immigration.

According to this new Wall Street Journal report, it’s quite possible a supporter of Jeb Bush, or another candidate went to the media regarding Walker’s recent comments at a private GOP dinner, it doesn’t matter. With three sources now (anonymously) on record, he appears to have Walkered himself right into this one. If his name becomes synonymous with waffling on a critical issue like immigration, his next nickname may be toast!

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker told a private dinner of New Hampshire Republicans this month that he backed the idea of allowing undocumented immigrants to stay in the country and to eventually become eligible for citizenship, a position at odds with his previous public statements on the matter.

Given the history here, it may now be impossible to know precisely where Walker stands, with supporters left to assume the worst — that he’s just another open borders Republican — becoming the default across the conservative grassroots whose support he needs to win.

Mr. Walker’s “no amnesty” position was itself a change from his prior decadelong support for a pathway to citizenship. He has explained in public that his recent shift to a more restrictive view came after consulting with border-state governors and hearing from people opposed to citizenship for undocumented immigrants.

In the Front Door, Out the Back Door – DHS Released 30,000+ Criminal Aliens in 2014

CAPS | The DHS is reported to have released 30,558 aliens who had criminal histories in fiscal year 2014. This infuriating situation was reported by The Washington Times in a March 18, 2015, news report, “DHS released another 30,000 criminal aliens onto streets.”

In its never-ending efforts to spin bad news into a seeming success, the administration boasted that this was about 4,500 fewer aliens than were released in 2013 and promised that efforts would be made to not release “dangerous illegal immigrants” by purportedly requiring upper managers at ICE to make the decisions as to which aliens should be released.

Of course what was not pointed out by the administration is that under the ever-tightening constraints imposed by a president who has almost never seen an illegal alien he believed should be removed from the United States, overall arrests by ICE and the Border Patrol are much lower than ever before, as the noose is tightened around the necks of immigration enforcement personnel by the very agency that employs them.

What is astonishing is that on March 9, 2015, ICE issued a press release about a nationwide operation that focused on the sixth installment of “Operation Cross Check,” in which 2,059 criminal aliens from 94 countries were arrested during a four-day period at the start of March 2015. Among the countries noted in the press release were Jamaica, Poland, Finland and Mexico. Reportedly the five previous operations under Operation Cross Check netted 13,214 arrests.

That ICE press release served as the basis for my commentary published by FrontPage Magazine on March 18, 2015, “The Problem at Immigration and Customs Enforcement,” which discusses how a federal agency takes a step forward, and ten steps back.

It is worth noting that just three days after ICE issued that optimistic press release about the arrest of more than 2,000 criminal aliens, on March 12, 2015, Yahoo News posted an Associated Press report, “15 immigrants protected from deportation arrested in sweep.” According to Yahoo/AP, 13 of the 15 aliens who were apprehended in this arrest operation had been granted lawful status as “DREAMERS” under the DACA program. ICE officials have not disclosed the nature of the crimes for which these aliens were convicted, although it was reported that at least one of these aliens had been found to be in possession of a gun.

ICE Gang Arrests Fact Sheet


Operation Community Shield 2013

mmigrant and transnational gangs represent a unique public safety threat to American communities, due to their unusually violent nature and their involvement in cross-border crimes such as drug and weapons trafficking, human smuggling, extortion and kidnapping. Immigration enforcement has played a key role in disrupting and dismantling certain gangs that have non-citizen, and especially illegal alien, members. ICE arrest data shows that such gangs are not confined to traditional immigrant gateway communities, but have sprouted all over the country, in urban, suburban and rural areas. Since 2005, ICE and its local law enforcement partners have arrested more than 30,000 gang members, leaders and associates. Violent gang members arrive from all over the globe, but ICE arrest data reflect that the most prolifically violent gangs that are the highest priority for enforcement have significant numbers of members from Central America and Mexico.
