Like many on the right, Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer is politically opposed to impeaching President Barack Obama. But on Tuesday, he declared that legally, the rumored White House order granting amnesty to as many as 6 million illegal immigrants “would be an impeachable offense” — and Obama’s talk of impeachment may be a way to preempt that pushback.

Krauthammer spoke with Fox News’s Bret Baier on a panel with The Hill’s A.B. Stoddard and Fox News contributor Juan Williams. The group discussed the impeachment buzz swirling around Washington, which most observers agree is being ginned up by Democrats eager for the campaign donations such talk brings.

Krauthammer didn’t dispute that characterization, but offered a couple serious caveats. “There’s only one real thing here,” he claimed, “and that is that Obama is said to — or there are reports from the White House — that he’s going to do something by executive order about immigration.”

“If he were to do something like legalize five — let’s say half, which is what’s been talked about — huge numbers of illegal immigrants, to do it by executive order — which would be clearly lawless, and it would be the biggest overreach of a president in memory — it would be an impeachable offense,” Krauthammer declared.

“I would be 100 percent against impeachment,” the columnist clarified, “because it’s political suicide. But it really would be the basis for that.”

“That’s what I think the White House may actually be softening people up for,” Krauthammer mused. “An executive order that reaches impeachable offensive, but it’s a way to — it’s like a preemptive strike.”

COLLECT MORE THAN $7,000 PER MONTH FOR ‘FOSTERING’ ADULT ILLEGAL ALIENS

HOUSTON, Texas–The federal government is in dire need of U.S. citizens willing to house the thousands of illegal immigrants who enter the country each week, and they are willing to pay them to do so.
The Texas-based nonprofit Catholic Charities is currently seeking out foster families for the migrants, most of whom come from Central America. Ruth Braiser, a spokeswoman for the organization, told Breitbart Texas that foster families can receive monthly payments for housing adult immigrants who are under 23-years-old.
“Most of our children are 15 to 17-years-old,” she said. “But some stay in our program until they are 22-years-old; if they’re still working on getting their high school diploma, they can stay until they’re that age.”
The revelation that some of the migrants receiving foster care are adults will likely come as a surprise to many; the mainstream media has largely portrayed the border crisis as involving only children and family units.
Braiser mentioned that foster families will be paid $40 per day for each migrant they take in from Catholic Charities. The payments are funded by the federal government, as Breitbart Texas previously reported.
Foster parents have the ability to collect more than $7,400 per month, considering that they can house six immigrants at any given time.
In addition to daily payments, Braiser said that the illegal immigrants are provided with taxpayer subsidized education, health care, transportation, and an “allowance.” She was not specific about the amount of such an allowance or how often it is administered.
Many have expressed outrage that instead of being turned away at the border, many illegal aliens are being brought to federal facilities where they receive a slew of taxpayer-subsidized benefits: housing, food, vocational training, English lessons, recreation, and legal counsel. Ultimately, most of the migrants are released onto U.S. soil after promising to show up at an immigration court hearing.

Jeff Sessions: House Border Bill Is a ‘Surrender To a Lawless President’

Senator Jeff Sessions (R., Ala.) denounced the House Republican border bill as a “surrender to a lawless president” because the legislation does not include any language to prevent President Obama from expanding his unilateral legalization of illegal immigrants.

Here’s the statement:

The Obama Administration has openly declared its plan to implement a unilateral executive amnesty for 5–6 million more illegal immigrants. This unlawful amnesty—urged on by congressional Democrats—would include work permits, taking jobs directly from millions of struggling American citizens.

Any action Congress might consider to address the current border crisis would be futile should the President go forward with these lawless actions. Congress must speak out and fight against them. It must use its spending power to stop the President’s executive amnesty.

That the House leaders’ border package includes no language on executive actions is surrender to a lawless President. And it is a submission to the subordination of congressional power.

After years of falling wages and rising joblessness, American workers are pleading for someone to hear them. How can it be that our President is brazenly advertising that he will nullify and strip away American workers’ immigration protections, and their own elected leaders will not rise to their defense? Or to the defense of our laws and our Constitutional order?

There are other grave concerns with the Granger package as well: because it does not fix our asylum rules and loopholes, the end result of the additional judges and hearings will be more illegal immigrants gaining asylum and access to U.S. welfare. It is a plan for expedited asylum, not expedited removal.

Nor will this package make our rogue President actively enforce anything, coming nowhere close to the kinds of reasonable enforcement activities needed to restore the interior application of our immigration laws.

And finally, a package that is silent on blocking amnesty creates an opportunity for Senate Democrats to add elements of their party’s open borders and mass immigration agenda.

This legislation is unworthy of support.

BRITAIN PLANS MAJOR EXERCISES IN POLAND AMID UKRAINE CRISIS

Capture

Largest British contribution to exercises in eastern Europe since 2008

Warsaw (AFP) – Britain on Monday announced major joint manoeuvres in Poland in October, part of a string of NATO exercises in the region aimed at reassuring eastern Europe members jittery over a resurgent Russia.

“I can announce today exercise Black Eagle, which will be a significant Polish and UK armoured exercise with over 350 British armoured and other vehicles and some 1,350 British personnel,” British Defence Secretary Michael Fallon said in Warsaw.

The deployment will be the “largest British contribution to exercises in eastern Europe since 2008,” he said at a joint press conference with British Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond and Poland’s foreign and defence ministers.

Ex-communist NATO members have asked the alliance for permanent boots on the ground in the region amid the sharp escalation of fighting between Kiev government troops and pro-Russian rebels in eastern Ukraine.

Presidents from nine ex-communist NATO members met in Warsaw last week to hammer out a regional defence strategy to re-enforce its eastern frontier in preparation for a key summit in September.

The NATO summit is expected to focus largely on the fallout from the Ukraine crisis and Russia’s annexation of that country’s Crimean peninsula.

Senior NATO officials have said decisions on the possible permanent deployment of alliance forces throughout its eastern flank can be expected in September.

“The Russia-Ukraine conflict is Europe’s most important security challenge since the end of the Cold War,” Poland’s President Bronislaw Komorowski has said.

“Strengthening NATO’s eastern flank is fundamental.”

NATO has already sent additional temporary rotations of air, sea and land forces to Poland and three small former Soviet-ruled Baltic states in response to the Ukraine crisis.

US President Barack Obama in June earmarked a billion dollars (741 million euros) in military funding for US allies on NATO’s eastern border.

ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT CHILDREN FLOODING INTO U.S. FOR FREE GOODIES, NOT TO ESCAPE VIOLENCE

Americans advised to unquestioningly follow government conclusions

by KURT NIMMO | INFOWARS.COM | JULY 29, 2014

The incessant propaganda campaign waged by Democrats and the Obama administration characterizing an unprecedented wave of illegal immigrants entering the U.S. as refugees fleeing from violence has shaped public perception of the crisis.

Just over a quarter of respondents to a Public Religion Research Institute survey believe underage immigrants are entering the country illegally, while nearly 70 percent say the federal government should treat the children as refugees and not illegal immigrants.

“Of those polled, 56 percent said the families of children coming from Central America were acting to keep the young people safe from violence in their home countries. Some 38 percent of those polled said the families were ‘taking advantage of American good will’ and trying to stay illegally in the United States,” The New York Times reports.
A law enforcement intelligence report, however, disputes the claim about Central American violence pushed by the government. Instead, according to a report received by KRGV, the influx is the direct result of people in Central America being told they will be provided with permits and be allowed to stay in the United States and “reunite with their families and better themselves financially.”

The report also states violence in Central America is in decline. According to an elite, law-enforcement sensitive El Paso Intelligence Center (EPIC) intel report from July 7, 2014:

In late May, the U.S. Border Patrol interviewed unaccompanied children (UAC) and migrant families apprehended in the Rio Grande Valley. Of the 230 total migrants interviewed, 219 cited the primary reason for migrating to the United States was the perception of U.S. immigration laws granting free passes or permisos to UAC and adult female OTMs traveling with minors. Migrants indicated that knowledge of permisos was widespread across Central America due to word of mouth, local, and international media messaging—prompting many to depart for the United States within 30 days of becoming aware of these perceived benefits, according to the same reporting.
The establishment media has not reported on the EPIC findings and other information indicating the flood of illegal immigrants has little to do with violence. Because of this many Americans are left with a distorted and less than factual view of what is happening along the border in Texas and elsewhere in the Southwest.

The poll results would likely be different if Americans knew about the disproportionate use of welfare and other redistributive programs used by immigrants.

Unlimited immigration is impossible in a welfare state.

In 2009, according to research conducted by the Center for Immigration Studies, “57 percent of households headed by an immigrant (legal and illegal) with children (under 18) used at least one welfare program, compared to 39 percent for native households with children.” The rates for this tax payer funded assistance is the highest in states along the border – Arizona, Texas, and California. The largest percentage of welfare recipients are from Dominican Republic (82 percent), Mexico and Guatemala (75 percent), and Ecuador (70 percent).

The latest influx of poverty-stricken and uneducated illegal immigrants will undoubtedly strain and eventually bankrupt welfare programs. “Welfare use tends to be high for both new arrivals and established residents. In 2009, 60 percent of households with children headed by an immigrant who arrived in 2000 or later used at least one welfare program; for households headed by immigrants who arrived before 2000 it was 55 percent.”

“Already in this country, over the past five years, we’ve seen unprecedented increases in people/families on food stamps (SNAP program) now approaching 50 million; 10 million + now on disability and a stunning 92 million Americans are NOT working at all. Who in their right mind actually believes we can absorb tens of thousands of aliens without collapsing an already fragile economy?” writes Mike Hendren.

Despite the obvious detrimental impact of millions of unskilled and under-educated immigrants and their dependent children on the economy, the establishment continues to argue the influx is good for America.

For instance The Hill, a newspaper and website written for and about Congress, argues “information derived from reputable, nonpartisan sources” including the NGO think tank Pew Research Center, the USDA and the U.S. Department of Labor, should only be considered when considering the illegal immigration issue. Despite evidence to the contrary, The Hill state the “truth of the matter is that illegal immigrants are important to the U.S. economy.”

The Hill instructs Americans to unquestioningly follow the conclusions of establishment economists and discount the views of “radio show hosts” and others not working for the government.

FEDS SHIP ILLEGALS ACROSS U.S. ON TRIPS TWICE THE DISTANCE TO CENTRAL AMERICA

“Frequent flyer” illegals fly more than 85% of Americans

by KIT DANIELS | INFOWARS.COM | JULY 29, 2014

After illegal aliens from Central America are captured after traveling 1,500 miles to reach the United States, the federal government is shipping them over 3,000 miles across the country to various shelters before finally releasing them onto the streets.

In one typical example, two teenagers from Honduras travelled roughly 1,500 miles to McAllen, Texas, before being caught by U.S. officials, who then placed them on taxpayer-funded flights from Texas to Arizona, Arizona to Oklahoma and then back to Arizona, a trip twice the distance of their original journey to America.

“Finally, after three flights, numerous van rides to and from shelters and approximately three weeks and thousands of miles, the girls were released from federal custody,” reported Manuel Roig-Franzia with the Washington Post. “They are living with their parents in Phoenix and awaiting a court appearance to determine whether they can remain in the United States.”

But 90% of them never show up to their court appearance and are rarely – if ever – prosecuted for failure to appear, meaning that the American taxpayer is essentially paying for the travel expenses of illegal aliens settling in the U.S. as part of the de facto amnesty program enacted by the Obama administration.

“Even if they did show up to their court date, what we’re going to start seeing is what we call the ‘anchor babies’ because these court dates are being set from what I understand so far down the road that these people are going to come here, settle in, some of them are going to have children, and those citizens are now United States citizens,” Stu Harris of the National Border Patrol Council Local 1929 told Infowars. “How is a judge going to deport these people if they have a United States citizen as a child?”

And this surge of illegal immigrants “will continue to be something of a magnitude unlike anything we have ever seen,” according to Justice Department official Lauren Alder Reid who spoke to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

It is also interesting to note that these illegals are flying far more frequently than the majority of Americans paying for their trips.

“More than 85 percent of the public flies infrequently if at all,” reported Dalia Sussman with ABC News. “More than seven in 10 can be described as infrequent fliers, flying once or twice a year or less; and 14 percent have never flown.”

“Another 14 percent fly at least once every few month.”

PHOTOS EMERGE OF 10 “ACTIVE MILITIA TEAMS” SECURING THE US-MEXICO BORDER

With 1000s of illegal immigrants crossing the US-Mexico border every day (perhaps even more now some of the border has been washed away), the government quietly dumping them in Tennessee (among other places), and current (recently constructed border protection infrastructure already breaking down), it appears the American people are taking matters into their own hands. Photos showing dozens of members of militia groups on the U.S.-Mexico border carrying semi-automatic rifles and wearing masks, camouflage and tactical gear provide one of the first glimpses into the group’s activities on the border. The groups, includingOathkeepers, Three Percenters and Patriots, began recruiting and organizing more than a month ago and recent Facebook entries provide more color on their perspective: “You see an illegal. You point your gun dead at him, right between his eyes, and you say, ‘Get back across the border or you will be shot.’ …We are not worried about an ‘International’ incident.”

It appears the American people is growing frustrated as the government’s inaction… or in some cases action…

As Fox reports, the Obama administration recently released 760 illegal immigrant children to sponsors in the Volunteer State without any warning, the governor charged.
There was not so much as a text message or tweet.

“It is unacceptable that we became aware via a posting on the HHS website that 760 unaccompanied children have been released by the Office of Refugee Resettlement to sponsors in Tennessee without my administration’s knowledge,” the governor wrote in a strongly-worded letter to President Obama.

The Office of Refugee Resettlement says sponsors are typically a parent or relative who can care for the illegal immigrant child while their immigration case is processed. All sponsors are required to undergo background checks.

It’s also unclear why the ORR is handling the children – since they are illegal immigrants and not refugees.

It’s been the Obama administration’s standard operating procedure to release the illegals into states without notifying local or state government officials.
And the current government-provided border protection infrastructure is already breaking down…

An unusual amount of rain that ravaged parts of southern Arizona also knocked down 60 feet of the rebar-reinforced steel fence that divides the U.S. and Mexico.

The storms began Friday in Sonora, Mexico, and resumed Saturday night until Sunday morning, when debris from the Mexican side of the border traveled through a wash and piled up against the border fence. The fence, just west of the Nogales-Mariposa Port of Entry near Interstate 19, stood between 18 and 26 feet high and extended at least 7 feet underground.

The fence was built in 2011. It is constantly monitored by agents because smugglers and others who attempt to cross illegally routinely try to breach or knock down parts of it.

“It had a lot of water behind it, and it just pushed the fence straight down,” said John Hays, floodplain coordinator for the Santa Cruz County Flood Control District. “If you’re fencing is tight enough to catch debris, it basically becomes a dam. It’s not meant to withstand those loads of water.”

Hays said the fence appears to have floodgates, but they did not open.
So a number of locals have taken the challenge upon themselves. As Chron reports, photos showing dozens of members of militia groups on the U.S.-Mexico border carrying semi-automatic rifles and wearing masks, camouflage and tactical gear provide one of the first glimpses into the group’s activities on the border.

Members of the militia groups, who say they have 10 active “teams” along the state’s southern border, are seen at campsites, walking along the Rio Grande River, pointing rifles and pistols out of frame and flipping off the camera in the photos obtained by the San Antonio Express-News.
A spokesperson for the group provided the photos under the condition that members’ faces be blurred because of fear of being identified by “cartel and gang members.”

The groups, including Oathkeepers, Three Percenters and Patriots, began recruiting and organizing more than a month ago, as national media outlets began focusing on an influx of Central American immigrants illegally crossing the border, including more than 50,000 unaccompanied minors.

Some Facebook comments from members of the militias indicate the groups are not fearful of using force.

“(Rules of Engagement) is if in fear of bodily injury, weapons free, if fired upon, return fire. Real simple,” member KC Massey posted along with a photo on Facebook. “We are not worried about an “International” incident if they shoot at us.”

In an interview with the Express-News, Chris Davis, commander of the militia’s “Operation Secure Our Border: Laredo Sector”, who is seen in some of the photos, said members would secure the border in a “legal and lawful manner.”

However, in a since-deleted 21-minute YouTube video of Davis, he said: “How? You see an illegal. You point your gun dead at him, right between his eyes, and you say, ‘Get back across the border or you will be shot.’”
State Sen. Leticia Van de Putte, D-San Antonio, denounced the militia groups in a statement, saying “pointing guns at children solves nothing.”

“Local law enforcement and federal border patrol agents have been clear. The presence of these outside independent militia groups does nothing to secure the border; it only creates an unsafe situation for law enforcement officials that are protecting our communities. Unfortunately, the vile rhetoric of my opponent inspires misguided efforts,” said Van de Putte, who is running against state Sen. Dan Patrick, R-Houston, for lieutenant governor.
