Are you really so stupid that you believe an attorney should tell the court that he believes his client is lying? And are you really so stupid you believe an attorney can tell his client what to testify? You morons will say anything to try to make Hillary look bad.
no, the attorney cannot tell the court that his attorney is lying (or guilty)....

but an attorney cannot put his client on the stand if he knows that his client will lie....

or are you arguing that Hillary has no ethics????....

High School Blocked NRA, Republican, and Christian Websites, Connecticut Student Claims

A Connecticut high school student is claiming his school blocked him from viewing certain conservative websites, including ones related to the National Rifle Association, the Republican political party, and Christianity.

Lampart claims that pro-life groups, like National Right to Life, were blocked, but websites for Planned Parenthood and Pro-Choice America were not. The Vatican's website and Christianity.com were blocked, but a website relating to the Muslim religion was not. Additionally, the Connecticut Republican Party was blocked, but the Connecticut Democratic Party was not.

More insidious brainwashing perpetrated by the intolerant left.

I believe it was a scientist from N.J. who coined the term 'global warming' in the late 70's -- after the Ice Age that was predicted by a computer model failed to materialize.

The Obama administration says it is “surging” resources to confront the flood of illegal unaccompanied minors and family units coming across the southern border.

On the enforcement side, the Department of Homeland Security announced Friday it is stepping up enforcement resources to detain more adults with children and increase immigration court hearing capacity as a way to get illegal immigrants from Central America who are ordered removed back to their home countries more “quickly.”

DHS Deputy Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas told reporters on a conference call Friday afternoon that since October, 52,000 unaccompanied children have been apprehended along the southwest border as of June 15, and approximately 39,000 adults with children have been apprehended along the border as of the end of May.

House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte quickly criticized the Obama plan to confront the border crisis as “smoke and mirrors.”

“President Obama’s plan to deal with the crisis at the border created by his administration’s bad immigration policies is nothing but smoke and mirrors,” the Virginia Republican said Friday after the announcement.

“Many of the children, teenagers, and adults arriving at the border are able to game our asylum and immigration laws because the Obama Administration has severely weakened them and many thousands have already been released into the interior of the United States. What does President Obama plan to do with those who have already been released from custody?” he rhetorically asked.

Administration officials were unable to tell reporters Friday how many illegal immigrants released into the country with notices to appear had actually returned for their immigration hearings.

In addition to the “surge,” the Obama administration announced the U.S. will send an extra $9.6 million to El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras to help repatriate their citizens.

The U.S. will also provide another $40 million for a USAID citizen security program in Guatemala, a new $25 million Crime and Violence Prevention USAID program for outreach centers in El Salvador, and $18.5 million to Honduras to help local police combat crime.

The White House admitted rumors of free entry to the United States are motivating migrants to risk the trek northward. Officials said they are pushing back against “misinformation,” noting that Vice President Biden’s trip to Guatamala to meet with the leaders of El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Mexico is part of that effort.

“[They will] outline ways in which we will be working together to deal with this problem, again the source, to make sure we are doing everything possible both to support countries in stemming the tide of this migration but also to deal with the misinformation that is being deliberately planted by criminal organizations, by smuggling networks, about what people can expect if they come to the United States,” White House Director of Domestic Policy Cecilia Muñoz said on a conference call with reporters Friday.

“Part of what the Vice President’s effort and the administration’s effort overall is to make sure people have accurate information and that we push back on the misinformation that’s being spread and that’s contributing to this problem,” she said.

continued:

The White House elaborated in a “Fact Sheet” distributed Friday that specifically, Biden “will reiterate that unaccompanied children and adults arriving with their children are not eligible to benefit from the passage of immigration reform legislation or from the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) process.”

DACA allows certain illegal immigrants to live and work in the United States. Republicans have argued that DACA and lax immigration enforcement has served to draw more illegal immigration.

Muñoz's comments about the “misinformation” Friday contradict statements she made earlier in the month. In early June, she argued against the idea that misperceptions about America’s current immigration system was fueling the migration, instead pointing to unsavory issues in their home countries and a desire to be reunified with their parents as the motivation.

According to Goodlatte, the best way to take on the problem is to enforce the nation’s immigration laws.

No, it's actually just the hypocrisy on the part of the media and the left in full view.
Remember all the front page headlines about Romney being a bully when he was a teenager way back in high school because of one unfortunate incident when he cut a classmate's hair? It was big news.
At least he didn't laugh about defending a rapist who he got off after a few months' time served when he asked to defend him knowing he was guilty.
Payback is hell.
Hillary was also in her early thirties when she giggled her way through that interview.

Way to go, Lawrenceville, Virginia!

On June 20th federal immigration officials dropped plans to use Saint Paul’s College campus in Lawrenceville, Virginia as a shelter for 500 illegal minors.

After being shut out from an agreement between St. Paul’s College and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to house the illegals, Lawrenceville residents lined up at a packed public meeting on Thursday to voice their opposition.

Government representatives tried to persuade the crowd of 1,000 people at Brunswick County High School that their plan would bring much needed revenue to the cash-strapped community. But residents weren’t buying it.

I have a strong suspicion that the missing emails contain some over-the-top demands by some ignorant Senate Dems.

Here is Levin in a March 2013 interview

"Toward the end of my interview with Levin, he let slip a tantalizing tidbit. Sometime in the next few months, the permanent subcommittee plans to call the Internal Revenue Service to task for allowing the political super PACs to be classified as tax-exempt 501(c)(4)s.“Tax-exempt 501(c)(4)s are not supposed to be engaged in politics,” he said.“It is against the law to do so.” Then he added, with a certain undeniable relish,“We’re going to go after them.”
http://www.nytimes.com/2013/03/19/opinion/noc... ;

Well, Levin you are either ignorant of the law or pretending to be so you can go after groups that do not favor you politically.
