Roxlo again gives Republicans a pass & tries to blame others for their inaction that activated the sequestration cutting military funding.
You know very well it was the executive branch who decided what cuts were made.

The families of the Britons who perished in flight MH17 fear that pro-Russian rebels may keep the bodies as a “bargaining chip”.

David Cameron on Sunday night told Vladimir Putin he was partly to blame for the “appalling tragedy” and demanded access to the site so that victims’ families can hold “proper funerals”.

In a tense phone call, he told the Russian leader that the “world is watching” and urged him to “change course” or face tough new sanctions.

Pro-Russian separatists have taken control of the crash site in eastern Ukraine and loaded the remains of almost 200 victims on to a train, to be taken to an unknown destination.

There were reports that the rebels, some drunk, forced emergency workers to hand over the bodies at gunpoint as well as claims that the corpses were being looted.

Relatives described the situation as “horrific” and called on David Cameron and other Western leaders to do more to ensure the bodies of their loved ones are returned.

International investigators have still not been given free access to the site four days after the Malaysia Airlines jet came down killing all 295 people on board.

It is believed a Russian ground-to-air missile which was fired from the rebel held territory was responsible.

Mr Cameron told Mr Putin on Sunday that Russia has “contributed to an appalling tragedy” and said that denying investigators access to the site is “completely unacceptable and indefensible”.

Great Move, Putin

If anything could make the world reconsider the likelihood that the Moscow-backed Ukraine rebels shot down MH 17, surely it’s the rebels’ seizing the bodies of the dead and holding them as prisoners of war. Excerpt:

Pro-Russian separatist militiamen have seized custody of the bodies of about 200 victims of the Malaysia Airlines passenger jet that was blown out of the sky by a surface-to-air missile, Ukrainian officials said on Sunday, and rebels continued to limit access to the crash site in eastern Ukraine, blocking the work of experts even as hundreds of untrained local volunteers were picking through the wreckage with sticks.

Ukrainian emergency responders, working under the watchful eyes of armed rebels, had recovered 196 bodies from the area where Flight 17, a Boeing 777 carrying 298 passengers and crew from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur, crashed and burned on Thursday afternoon.

But the responders were forced to turn the bodies over to the separatists, Andriy Lysenko, a spokesman for the Ukrainian National Security and Defense Council, said at a briefing in Kiev on Sunday. Mr. Lysenko said officials believed that 38 of those bodies were taken to the morgue in Donetsk, a regional capital that is controlled by separatists.

Great move, rebels. Great move, Putin. That’s the way to win the hearts and minds of the world.

you're been watching too much FOX.
The Obama administration "manipulated deportation data to make it appear that the Border Patrol was deporting more illegal immigrants than the Bush administration."
Deportations or "removals" under Obama are tracking higher than during the Bush years using the most literal deportation statistics, as well as those solely from ICE. Dobbs’ contention that the Obama administration is inflating its number is an interpretation of a change in federal policy to process and remove people trying to enter the country illegally rather than just turn them around. Whether you agree with the policy, those formal removals are occurring.
That strategy is rooted in previous administrations but was accelerated by Obama so that people trying to cross the border illegally face more significant consequences and receive formal deportation orders.
We rate the claim False.

CIS: The "Independent" Think Tank

CIS was started in 1985 by a Michigan ophthalmologist named John Tanton — a man known for his racist statements about Latinos, his decades-long flirtation with white nationalists and Holocaust deniers, and his publication of ugly racist materials. CIS' creation was part of a carefully thought-out strategy aimed at creating a set of complementary institutions to cultivate the nativist cause — groups including the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) and NumbersUSA. As is shown in Tanton's correspondence, lodged in the Bentley Historical Library at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, Tanton came up with the idea in the early 1980s for "a small think tank" that would "wage the war of ideas."

And while Tanton never actually ran CIS, his correspondence shows that as late as 1994, nine years after it was started, Tanton, who remains on FAIR's board of directors today, saw himself as setting the "proper roles for FAIR and CIS." He raised millions of dollars for the think tank and published the writings of top CIS officials in his racist journal, The Social Contract. He maneuvered a friend on to the board of CIS — a man who shared his interest in eugenics and who attended events with Tanton where white nationalists gave presentations. Through it all, CIS pumped out study after study aimed at highlighting immigration's negative effects.

These studies have hardly been neutral. One of them concludes that because foreign women ("Third World gold-diggers") can obtain work permits by marrying American citizens, it's obvious that fraudulent marriage applications are "prevalent among terrorists." Another claims that because many immigrants have worked in Georgia since 2000, it's clear that unemployment among less educated native workers is up. A third says that because immigration levels have been high recently, immigrants make up a growing share of those drawing welfare.

But every one these claims, each of them at the heart of a different recent report from CIS, are either false or virtually without any supporting evidence. That came to fore again last September, when CIS organized a panel to accompany the release of yet another new report, this one claiming that municipalities in substantial numbers were permitting non-citizens to vote. When challenged, the panelists could only come up with a single possible example of the purported trend.

"CIS' attempts to blame immigrants for all of the U.S.'s problems have been laughable," said Angela Kelley of the Immigration Policy Center, a Washington, D.C., organization that uses well-known scholars to produce reports on immigration-related issues and has debunked many of the studies issued by CIS. "It is clear that CIS is not interested in serious research or getting the facts straight."
