On Thursday, congress passed a landmark bill, o help veterans avoid long waits for health care and fix other problems at the Department of Veterans Affairs. A 91-3 vote in the Senate sent the $16.3 billion measure to President Barack Obama for his signature. The House had voted overwhelmingly in favor of the bill on Wednesday.
Sad part is, this won’t pass. Sen. David Vitter, R-La., is spearheading a legislative approach to the border crisis, one that he says will result in far more deportations in less time and slam the door shut on the Obama administration’s ability to use its own discretion in enforcing existing laws.
A proposal by House Republicans to slash President Barack Obama’s emergency aid request to address the illegal immigrant crisis is nothing more than “cover-your-butt legislation,” said Rep. John Fleming.
Obama is preparing to sign an executive order cracking down on labor violations by companies that contract with the federal government.

Well, Vice President Joe Biden has put his foot in his mouth again. Biden urged the NAACP on Wednesday to spread the word about what he called “a hailstorm” of measures to restrict citizens’ ability to vote, trying to rally the Democratic Party’s base before the midterm elections.
On Wednesday, the New York Times reported that Governor Andrew Cuomo’s office meddled with a commission he created to root out corruption in state politics, pushing back whenever it focused on groups tied to Cuomo. The July 2013 commission he created to investigate violations of campaign finance laws and other matters was hobbled almost from the start by demands from the governor’s office, despite a public promise of independence, the Times said.
Once again, we have the worthless UN butting into US sovereignty, this time by involving itself in the border crisis. At our southern border, we are being invaded by an influx of diseased illegals. Finding housing for them has been difficult. Local communities across the country, including in California and New York, have refused to permit overflow shelters to house the immigrant children to be opened.
I wouldn’t pay any attention to anything Kerry or Obama say, as both are bungling idiots. The State Department publicly battled a barrage of Israeli criticism on Monday over Secretary of State John Kerry’s efforts to secure a cease-fire with Hamas, in the latest signs of strain between the Obama administration and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s government.
Sources are telling Fox News members of the Islamist extremist militia blamed for the Benghazi terror attack had moved in next door to the U.S. Consulate months before the strike but “nothing was done” despite concerns about the dangerous neighbors.
