Any comments about what Hillary said?

"Hillary distances herself from OBama's foreign policy

"Hillary Clinton:'Failure' to Help Syrian Rebels Led to the Rise of ISIS
The former secretary of state, and probable candidate for president, outlines her foreign-policy doctrine. She says this about President Obama's: "Great nations need organizing principles, and 'Don't do stupid stuff' is not an organizing principle."

68% of the American people disapprove of The President's handling of the border crisis yet he appears to be intent of executed an executive order to allow an additional 5 million illegal aliens to remain in the country. It is obvious you can't kick millions of human beings out of the country but it should be obvious to all that you cannot allow the southern border to remain porous and unprotected. What exactly is "comprehensive immigration reform"? Will the border be secured? How? Do we allow anyone who steps foot on American soil to stay? Are they interviewed and entered into a system that tracks their comings and goings? Do they receive a medical exam to determine whether they are disease free? Do you inoculate them against diseases? Do we provide free medical treatment? Do we house them? Feed them? Provide them with food? Do we send the children to school in unsuspecting communities with American children who have had to prove they are current on their shots and disease free? What exactly do we do with them? What happens to them and the "11 million" illegal aliens already here (of course there are millions more than 11 million but hey that is the number we are being fed)? Are they "legalized" and given a "pathway" to citizenship? Should any of the people who are here illegally be rewarded with citizenship? Should they ever be allowed to vote? Should illegals who have committed crimes be allowed to stay in this country? WHO PAYS FOR ALL OF THIS? There are millions of American Citizens who do not eat. Do not have a roof over their heads. Do not have jobs. Do not have any hope of pulling themselves out of poverty. Should the US Taxpayer support illegal aliens over US Citizens?
You can thank Reagan for putting out the welcome mat and Bush I and II for doing absolutely nothing. At least Obama has succeeded in reducing the number of Mexicans coming across the border. That is progress.

Former Iraq ambassador: Internationalize response to ISIS

"The United States needs to move quickly to internationalize its efforts in Iraq to combat Islamic extremists, former U.S. Ambassador to Iraq Zalmay Khalilzad said Sunday.

ADVERTISEMENT

"I think one of the things we need to do is to move quickly to internationalize the effort" by working with Turkey, European allies and even some Arab nations, Khalilzad said on CNN's "State of the Union."
Khalilzad, who served as ambassador to Afghanistan as well as Iraq and the United Nations under President George W. Bush, stressed the importance of working with others to address the Islamic militants.

"This is the moment for the president, for the United States, to exercise leadership that has been a deficit in exercising leadership in the last couple of years, in particular," Khalilzad said.

Everyone has all the answers; but we have only one President. So far he has made wise choices. Hillary is a little hawkish

There is a big difference between people coming to America for economic opportunity and those being beheaded for not agreeing to be Muslim extremists who have vowed to attack the USA..
Does that apply to children coming to America rather than being forced into a gang or being killed?

Obama blew it by not working hard enough to have an agreement with Iraq. Obama's poor handling of international affairs is reflected in the polls with only the far left extremists like you supporting his moronic policies..
So you completely absolve the man who signed the agreement to remove all U.S. combat forces by 2011. Which BTW is the same man who started this whole thing by invading Iraq and removing the one man who kept the area stabilized

It also glosses over the fact that Iran's puppet Malaki wanted U.S. combat forces out of Iraq to appease his Tehran masters and so that he could take revenge on the Sunni's

Malaki is to blame for most of this, and he still refuses to step down. He marginalized the Iraqi Sunni population out of the gov't and the Kurds what did he expect them to do.

It also ignores the fact that ISIS chief financial supporter, Saudi Arabia, has a big hand in this.

The worst President in the history of the United States is the one who lit the powder keg by removing Saddam.

Speaking of clueless, I have to wonder if you could point out the Middle East on a map

Exactly.....It hasn't just been President Obama who has allowed this to go on. It goes back through every President for decades. We are supposed to be a nation "of laws".....why do we allow such lawlessness? We provide millions of dollars in aid to Mexico and Central American countries.....Why isn't it trickling down to the populace? How many coming here are actually fleeing violence? Not that many according to the people who were interviewed in Texas. They came here because they were told they would receive a "permiso" from President Obama. This allowed for the cartels, human traffickers and cojotes to take advantage of people who want to escape poverty and corrupt governments (although I'd say that ours is pretty corrupt on both sides of the aisle). So, that begs the question "do we take on ANYONE who sets foot on American Soil because they want a better life"? Of do we demand that they come through legally, orderly and in a way they can take care of themselves and not be dependent of the US Government for their very existence?
You obviously have not been paying attention. Hundreds of those recent "illegals" from Central America have already been deported and deportation hearings have been accelerated.

"Under the new procedures, unaccompanied minors and families with children who entered the United States in recent months during a surge of illegal migration from Central America will be moved to the front of the line to go before immigration judges."

"These immigrants could be deported in a matter of months rather than years, the usual time frame in the overburdened immigration court system."

"The plan is part of the President Obama’s strategy, announced last month, to accelerate cases involving child migrants and parents with children to deter the influx of migrants across the southern border."

Obama has already met with Central American leaders to discuss the situation and make sure they are prepared to accept the return of their citizens. HE'S NOT SITTING ON HIS HANDS (unlike prior presidents) and he isn't letting ANYONE who sets foot on U.S. soil stay. Even the "proposal" to provide refugee visas to young Hondurans is limited to 2,000 in the first year.

As an aside, only Texas has received more unaccompanied minors than New York since the beginning of the year" according to figures recently released by the federal Office of Refugee Resettlement.

FYI...

Top campaign donors for 2014

The Center for Responsive Politics has issued a report detailing the top donors to political campaigns in 2014.

Of the top 20, only two were supporting GOP candidates. Eleven were labor unions.

Way down at No. 36 is Koch Industries, the conservatively run company Democrats claim control the GOP. The list includes campaigns, parties, federally-focused 527s, and super PACs.

Among individuals, former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg ranked second in donations, with $8,710,678 of his $9,495,798 going to Democrats and Democratic causes.

Plagiarism ends Walsh’s Senatorial race, propels Biden to VP

WASHINGTON, August 8, 2014 – Senator Joe Biden plagiarized a campaign speech and became Vice President of the United States. Senator John Walsh, D-Mont., plagiarized a final paper and may have ended his political career. What’s the difference?

Interesting that she and the rest of the Fox crowd just now became concerned with illegals. You're right that Reagan opened the door. And now that the unions are pretty much kaput and wages are stagnated, they don't need those illegals any more because Americans can be the 3rd world world labor source.
