Tim Scott Wins …

ABC News, carrying an Associated Press Report has already called the South Carolina primary for Palin-endorsed Tim Scott who is running for a U.S. Senate seat there.“Tim Scott has easily won the Republican primary in South Carolina. Early returns Tuesday showed the 48-year-old Scott with more than 90 percent of the vote over challenger Randall Young.” With only 12 out of 46 counties reporting (26% of the precincts) as this story goes to press , Scott has 91.05% of the vote according to the South Carolina Division of Elections.

South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley – a 2010 Palin endorsee – appointed Sen. Scott to the position after Jim DeMint retired. He served in the U.S. House of Representatives and is the only black Republican in the Senate. His primary opponent did not do any campaigning.

Sen. Scott was Gov. Palin’s first endorsement this year. A week after her endorsement, SarahPAC donated $5,000 – the legal maximum – to his campaign.

Gov. Palin has endorsed 16 candidates for 2014 and now 11 primaries have been held with five wins. This translates to a current Endorsement Success Rate of 45.45%.

On June 24, Chris McDaniel has his runoff, and T.W. Shannon and Dan Bongino have primaries.

BREAKING: Newspapers in Central America Advertising Obama's Open Borders For Illegals to US
Published: 10 June 2014.
4 Comments
Every day, thousands of illegals are flooding our borders at a cost of $252 per illegal to US taxpayers. Just wait until we're paying for their housing, food and health care! Mexico Train

Newspapers in El Salvador and Honduras are promoting policies by the Obama administration that defer deportation to minors brought to the United States as children by their parents — known as "Dreamers" — and those that are housing illegal children at military bases in the South and West.

"Almost all agree that a child who crossed the border illegally with their parents, or in search of a father or a better life, was not making an adult choice to break our laws, and should be treated differently than adult violators of the law," Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson is quoted in a story about a new two-year extension of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals Act published by Diario El Mundo in El Salvador.

Signed by President Barack Obama in 2012, the law grants temporary legal status to many young illegal immigrants, ending the threat of deportation for at least two years.

The policy, however, does not entitle the immigrants to state services. The law was renewed for two more years.

"With the renewal of DACA, we act according to our values and code of this great nation," Johnson said. "But the biggest task of comprehensive immigration reform is yet to come."

Meanwhile, La Prensa of Honduras discusses in a report how as many as 500 illegal minors are being housed at the Naval Base Ventura County in Southern California.

"The children will be accommodated for between three and four months, while their parents or relatives are located in the United States," the report says.

"The administration of President Barack Obama has acknowledged he faces a serious crisis for the continuous arrival of children, mostly Central Americans, who are illegally entering the country on the border with Mexico."

Besides Mexico and Honduras, the report notes that many of the children are coming from Guatemala, El Salvador, and Nicaragua.

"During their stay, in addition to accommodations and food, children receive English classes, play sports and participate in targeted programs while immigration authorities contact their families," the La Prensa report says.

On Monday, the Obama administration said that it would begin housing as many as 1,200 illegal minors at the Army base in Fort Sill in Oklahoma.

The plan was attacked last week by Oklahoma Republicans, who accused the administration of not giving them sufficient notice and that it would strain limited resources.

A similar shelter for that has accommodated about 1,820 minors over nearly four weeks has been operating at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas.

Housing the illegals cost American taxpayers $252 per child per day.

The deluge of illegal immigrants is causing a burden on the border states of Texas and Arizona, and officials have been transporting children from south Texas to Arizona and leaving them at various locations, including holding centers and bus stations.

Only a fat 400lb Democrat from New Jersey can do something so moronic!

"A Democratic congressman offered a curious analogy on Monday to explain why the U.S. is dealing with the Taliban -- apparently comparing them to soldiers in the American Revolution.

According to sources, Rep. Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., made the comparison during a House briefing late Monday with administration officials on the trade of Taliban members for American Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl. "

OMG

David Brat, who defeated House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) in the Republican primary for Virginia's 7th Congressional District, was surprised when he appeared on MSNBC on Wednesday that he would be asked policy questions.

In his interview with MSNBC's Chuck Todd Brat punted when Todd asked him both about the minimum wage and Syria.

"Let me ask you a few other issue questions. Where are you on the minimum wage? Do you believe in it and would you raise it?" Todd asked.

"Minimum wage, no, I'm a free market guy," Brat responded. "Our labor markets right now are already distorted from too many regulations. I think Cato estimates there's $2 trillion of regulatory problems and then throw Obamacare on top of that, the work hours is 30 hours a week. You can only hire 50 people. There's just distortion after distortion after distortion and we wonder why our labor markets are broken."

Todd then pressed Brat on the question.

"Um, I don't have a well-crafted response on that one," Brat finally conceded. "All I know is if you take the long-run graph over 200 years of the wage rate, it cannot differ from your nation's productivity. Right? So you can't make up wage rates."

The exchange was pretty similar when Brat was asked about arming Syrian rebels.

"On a foreign policy issue, arming the Syrian rebels. Would you be in favor of that?" Todd asked.

"Hey, Chuck, I thought we were just going to chat today about the celebratory aspects," Brat said. "I'd love to go through all of this but my mind is — I love all the policy questions but I just wanted to talk about the victory ahead and I wanted to thank everybody that worked so hard on my campaign. I'm happy to take policy issues at any time, I just wanted to call out a thanks to everybody today."

California court declares teacher tenure unconstitutional.......
I doubt this will ever hold up in appeal. If the judge's ruling against the "last in, first out law," which says that layoffs ordered as a cost-saving measure must be done in reverse order of seniority is allowed to stand, it will affect more than just teacher's contracts.

Under civil service rules the last-hired are also the first fired. If decisions are permitted to be made based on budgetary constraints, our experienced senior employees in say The Department of Defense who are making the big bucks could be targeted for firing in favor of keeping two lower inexperienced employees. Is that really what Republicans want?

Republicans warn ObamaCare rule tweak could trigger taxpayer bailout of insurers
Published June 11, 2014FoxNews.com

Top congressional Republicans warned the Obama administration Tuesday it risks violating federal law if it proceeds with a backup plan to transfer "potentially billions" in taxpayer dollars into ObamaCare to bail out insurance companies.

The Affordable Care Act was originally signed into law with a provision that allows the government to cover insurers that lose money by paying them from a pool of cash collected from insurers that turned a profit.

However, administration officials made a rule change in May to the so-called "risk corridors" program that, Republicans say, would allow them to use taxpayer funds from other federal programs -- GOP lawmakers say that's a decision only Congress can make.

“It is plain that under current law, the Obama administration does not have the ability to divert money from programs that Congress has funded,” Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions, the top Republican on the Senate Budget Committee, told FoxNews.com in a statement.“Congress alone was given the power of the purse -- the power to appropriate funds. Yet again, the administration is circumventing Congress and seeking to write its own laws."

The change comes amid concerns that insurance companies participating in ObamaCare could soon announce double-digit rate hikes because they had to insure more high-risk customers this year than expected. Premium spikes stand to hurt Democrats seeking reelection this year. But the latest regulatory tweak could effectively guarantee that the federal government will offset their losses -- making premium hikes less necessary.

The May regulation states that HHS would use “other sources of funding … subject to the availability of appropriations” if necessary to make up for any “shortfall."

Sessions and Michigan GOP Rep. Fred Upton, chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, told newly confirmed Health and Human Services Secretary Sylvia Matthews Burwell in a letter on Tuesday that executing the new rule “would constitute an unlawful transfer of potentially billions of taxpayer dollars to insurers.”

HHS spokeswoman Erin Shields Britt told FoxNews.com on Tuesday that the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office has not projected a deficit for the three-year-long risk corridor program and that the agency was “confident” about not having a shortfall.

She also said the payments under the program are “set by law and regulation” and “like any authorized program, HHS may use available appropriations to make payments consistent with these rules.”

The insurance industry is defending the program.

ObamaCare's "temporary risk mitigation programs are designed to help ensure market stability and affordability for consumers," American's Health Insurance Plans spokesman Brendan Buck said Tuesday. "The final rule provides important clarity about how these insurer-financed programs will work as health plans prepare their rates for 2015."

Sessions' and Upton’s letter also states that HHS could be held in violation of the Antideficiency Act for making such transfers. The law was enacted by Congress in the late 1880s to keep the federal government from entering into contracts that were not already fully funded by an appropriation.

However, the lawmakers also state the agency has yet to make clear whether it thinks an appropriation has already been made. They are asking HHS to provide by June 24 all related legal analysis and a list of all funding sources “legally or otherwise” it thinks it has for funding the program, absent an appropriation.

Of course there is no open border policy by Obama.
But hey, in whiner world, that does not matter.
