(CNSNews.com) -When making the case for the Obama administration’s legal challenge to Arizona’s new law against illegal immigration, White House senior adviser David Axelrod said “no administration has been tougher” on immigration enforcement than the Obama administration.

“We can’t have – we can’t have a patchwork of 50 states developing their own immigration policy,” Axelrod told host Chris Wallace on the July 11 edition of “Fox News Sunday.” “I understand the frustration of people in Arizona. They want the federal government to step up and deal with this problem once and for all, and that’s…read more

More than three-quarters of the needed members of the U.S. House of Representatives have signed onto a measure to have a new vote on Obamacare that essentially would allow the chamber to withdraw its approval of the law and begin the process of banishing it from American shores.

But another effort has enabled some 33,500 voices across America – so far – to offer their encouragement to members of the House who have yet to sign the discharge petition offered by Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa.

The campaign is a petition drive that urges members of Congress to repeal Obamacare because of several problems: read more

A battle between Left and Right — inside the GOP

Chief Political Correspondent

Rep. Mike Castle (AP Fil

There’s been a lot of talk about what Democrats will do if they lose seats in the House and Senate this November. Many Republicans believe Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid will make a last-ditch, lame-duck effort to pass the remaining parts of their agenda, like tax increases, card check, and a climate change bill. And that’s why Christine O’Donnell says the Senate race in Delaware is so important……Read more at the Washington Examiner

House Ethics Committee announces charges against Maxine Waters

Chief Congressional Correspondent

The House ethics committee on Monday announced it has found Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., in violation of the rules of the House. The panel did not release the details of the violations, but most believe the charges relate to the 71-year-old lawmaker’s efforts to secure federal bailout funds for a bank tied to her husband. Waters has said she plans to fight the charges, which means the panel would have to hold a public hearing, much like a trial, to determine whether she is guilty of an violations……Read more at the Washington Examiner:

Gregory Kane: Pick Pookie from Baltimore’s Park Heights

Examiner Staff Writer

August 2, 2010

In what may go down as the anti-white-bashing piece of the year, New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd opened her July 24 op-ed column with this sentence: “The Obama White House is too white.”

Dowd is a talented writer, but who knew she was an absolute hoot as well?

It’s one thing to take a president to task because he or she may not have enough black advisers, but can you believe a white woman chiding President Obama for not having black advisers “who are descended from the central African-American experience”?     Read more at the Washington Examiner:

The Soak-the-Rich Catch-22

By ARTHUR LAFFER

Tax reduction thus sets off a process that can bring gains for everyone, gains won by marshalling resources that would otherwise stand idle—workers without jobs and farm and factory capacity without markets. Yet many taxpayers seemed prepared to deny the nation the fruits of tax reduction because they question the financial soundness of reducing taxes when the federal budget is already in deficit. Let me make clear why, in today’s economy, fiscal prudence and responsibility call for tax reduction even if it temporarily enlarged the federal deficit—why reducing taxes is the best way open to us to increase revenues.

EPA control of CO2: Obama’s Vehicle To Destroy The US Economy is Launched

By Dr. Tim Ball Full Story

John Topping, who served as editor of portions of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) First Assessment Report (FAR) concerning impacts of climate change, wrote an article titled, “Massachusetts v. EPA: A Turning Point for the US on Climate Change?

He sees the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) loss as a victory because they can now control CO2, fossil fuels, and the US economy. Frighteningly, it’s based on completely falsified science and is totally unnecessary. It’s what President Obama really meant when he talked about change. In a pre-election interview he revealed his true intention, “Under my plan of a cap-and-trade system, electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket.” EPA has launched the rocket with its economy-destroying warhead.

Mexican Drug Cartel Allegedly Puts a Price on Arizona Sheriff’s Head

$1M offered for Arpaio, $1K to join cartel

PHOENIX – He’s been at the center of the discussions and controversies surrounding illegal immigration enforcement in Arizona for quite a while.

On the day parts of Arizona’s immigration law, SB 1070, went into effect, Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio is in the news for another reason: there’s a price on his head – allegedly offered by a Mexican drug cartel.

The audio message in Spanish is a bit garbled, but the text is clear.

It’s offering $1 million for Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s head and $10,000 for anyone who wants to join the Mexican cartel…read more

Obama Would Be Wrong to Turn His Back on Immigration

By Mark Krikorian

Published August 02, 2010

FoxNews.com

Now that Arizona’s immigration law has at least temporarily been put on hold, President Obama may well be tempted to put the whole immigration issue on the back burner for a while, as his Justice Department’s lawsuit against the state winds its way through the courts. After all, he has plenty of other things vying for his attention – two wars and an anemic economy, for starters.

Who could blame him for wanting to put aside the contentious issue of immigration?

But doing so would be a mistake.

Both politically and as a policy matter, the president needs to remain engaged on immigration. The lawsuit has simply reinforced in the public mind the impression that this administration isn’t serious about enforcing immigration laws. And such a lack of credibility is precisely the obstacle to the president’s own goal of amnesty  – my own skepticism about amnesty notwithstanding, much of the public would grudgingly accept it if they believed the government was now firmly committed to enforcing immigration laws in the future…..

Shirley Sherrod and the Race Grievance Industry

By Rosslyn Smith

Shirley Sherrod, litigant and co-mastermind of the Pigford settlement, which bestowed large checks on 86,000 of the country’s 40,000 black farmers, ironically may help usher in a long-overdue post-racial era in America. Publicity, once the ally of the racial grievance industry, is now the enemy of deals done in quiet.

After Dan Riehl linked to a law firm that specializes in filing complaints in the Pigford settlement for a 33.5% contingency fee — Pogust, Braslow & Millrood, LLC, in Conshohoken, Pennsylvania — their site at http://www.blackfarmersjustice.com seems to have gone offline. Riehl notes this language from the law firm’s 2008 press release:….read more American Thinker

The Conservative Phoenix

By Bruce Walker

It is so easy to yield to the counsels of despair. Debt drowns our national and state governments. California, for example, has a state deficit of about $19 billion, which appears impossible to pay. The federal deficit for Fiscal Year 2010 will be about $1.5 trillion. How big is that? The population of our country is about 300 million. The deficit, then, is equal to about $5,000 for every person in America — not federal expenditures, mind you, just expenditures over revenue collections….read more American Thinker
