Black residents of Chicago’s South Side, who recently rallied to decry a spate of violence in the city, ripped President Obama for ignoring their plight while pushing for funding for illegal immigrants at their expense.

The protest against the rash of shootings was staged Friday at the Chicago Police Department headquarters building. Over the Fourth of July weekend, nine people were killed and more than 60 injured, authorities said. Demonstrators blasted the Obama administration’s inaction in Chicago while federal funds are earmarked to help the roughly 50,000 illegal immigrants who have crossed into America since October.

“Mr. President, we’re asking for you,” one woman said. “You’re spending billions of dollars in Texas, but we’ve a problem here in Chicago. We will not stand by this here, and keep letting this senseless killing and shooting happen in our community.”

Another resident said, “Today, if you look at the time that we were brought here as slaves 400 years ago, we got the same results today.”

One man called for Mr. Obama to step down if he continued to shun the city’s problems.

“For the president to set aside all of these funds for immigrants and [have] forsaken the African-American community, I think that’s a disgrace,” the man told the blog Rebel Pundit. “He will go down as the worst president ever elected. Bill Clinton was the African-American president.”

Obama’s new admiral – She can’t fly, but she rules over Navy pilots

ADMIRAL-superJumbo

WASHINGTON — Adm. Michelle J. Howard was looking for new insignia for her white Navy dress uniform when she ran into an unusual problem.

“I said, ‘I need to order a four-star women’s shoulder board,’ and there’s this silence,” Admiral Howard recalled. “Then the lady goes, ‘Um, I’m not seeing any in the system.’ And I said, ‘Yeah, I thought that might be the case.’ ”

Last week Admiral Howard, the vice chief of naval operations, became the first female four-star in the 239-year history of the Navy. She is also the highest-ranking African-American woman in a male-dominated military that did not even allow the promotion of women to general or admiral until 1967.

“I didn’t know it was possible to grow up to be anything more than a one-star,” Admiral Howard, 54, said in a recent interview, referring to the rank of rear admiral. She said today’s sailors “have never known a life when there hasn’t been a woman admiral, women three-stars, women in command of ships, women in command of destroyers.”

Part of Admiral Howard’s career recently played out on the big screen. In 2009, only days into her new job as commander of a counterpiracy task force based in Bahrain, pirates hijacked the container ship Maersk Alabama off the coast of Somalia. By radio, Admiral Howard coordinated the rescue of the ship’s commander, later depicted in the movie “Captain Phillips.”

Admiral Howard’s tickets to the film’s Washington, D.C., premiere are framed in her large Pentagon office, opposite an enormous oil painting of American battleships arriving in Scotland during World War I. “I thought it was well done,” Admiral Howard said, referring to “Captain Phillips.” Even though she knew the ending, she added, “I was still like —“ and then ended the sentence with a gasp.

But it was another movie that changed Admiral Howard’s life, a documentary on the service academies she watched as a 12-year-old. “The leadership, the marching around, the uniforms, all appealed to me,” said Admiral Howard, whose father had been a senior noncommissioned officer in the Air Force.

Admiral Howard moved all over the country as a child. She graduated from Gateway High School in Aurora, Colo., and then from the United States Naval Academy in Annapolis, Md., in 1982, only six years after women were admitted to the service academies.

“There were angry men at Annapolis, but we got through it,” she said. “And there were issues on the first few ships because it was all brand new. Change is hard in society.”

Admiral Howard continued with other “firsts” as she rose through the ranks — in 1999 she became the first African-American woman to command a ship, the U.S.S. Rushmore — and benefited from the cultural shifts underway in the military.

“There weren’t any women when I started,” said Brig. Gen. Wilma L. Vaught, now retired, who joined the Air Force in 1957 and was the first woman deployed with an Air Force bomber unit. “But she was a junior officer when breakthroughs were happening in the 1980s and then she was at the midlevel when there were openings for more challenging positions. She couldn’t have hit it any better.”

As vice chief of naval operations, Admiral Howard is No. 2 to Adm. Jonathan W. Greenert, the chief of naval operations, and described her responsibilities as encompassing “the whole scope of the Navy.” She takes over the job at a time when the Navy has faced a growing number of sexual assault cases, including a highly publicized case at her alma mater in which a Naval Academy football player was charged with sexually assaulting a fellow midshipman when she was too drunk to consent. The football player was acquitted of the sexual assault charge in March. A charge of making false statements was withdrawn upon his resignation.

“We, as leaders, have to get after sexual assault, and I believe we have to work on the command climate,” Admiral Howard said. “I believe we have to go back and look at how we’ve done gender integration, make sure our policies are set and that we are setting the climate across the Navy for our commanding officers and our senior enlisted to be successful, and for our sailors to be successful shipmates.”

Admiral Howard’s four stars send a message to others in the military, said Col. Krewasky A. Salter, now retired, who taught Admiral Howard at the United States Army Command and General Staff College at Fort Leavenworth, Kan., in 1998.

“Admiral Howard is all about capability, not that she’s a woman or that she’s African-American,” he said.

Obama shows true colors, it’s all about him, all the time!

I, Me, My – Obama Uses First Person Singular 199 Times in SpeechVowing Unilateral Action.

Not counting instances when he quoted a letter from a citizen or cited dialogue from a movie, President Barack Obama used the first person singular–including the pronouns “I” and “me” and the adjective “my”–199 times in a speech he delivered Thursday vowing to use unilateral executive action to achieve his policy goals that Congress would not enact through the normal, constitutional legislative process.

“It is lonely, me just doing stuff,” Obama said at the speech in Austin, Texas, according to the official transcript and video posted on the White House website.

“I’m just telling the truth now,” Obama told the crowd. “I don’t have to run for office again, so I can just let her rip. And I want to assure you, I’m really not that partisan of a guy.”

 

To prove this, Obama went on to say Abraham Lincoln was his favorite president, and then gave a list of what he called “great Republican presidents”—which included Richard Nixon.

“My favorite president is the first Republican president, a guy named Abraham Lincoln,” Obama said. “You look at our history, and we had great Republican presidents who–like Teddy Roosevelt started the National Park System, and Dwight Eisenhower built the Interstate Highway System, and Richard Nixon started the EPA.”

The White House presented Obama’s speech, which the president delivered at Austin’s Paramount Theatre, as “Remarks by the President on the Economy.” The remarks, the White House reports, ran 40 minutes, and the full transcript (including annotations for “laughter” and “applause”) is more than 5,500 words.

By contrast, President Abraham Lincoln’s Gettyburg Address was only 272 words–and did not include any form of the first person singular.

In President Obama’s speech, he used a first person singular, on average, every 12 seconds. At that rate, had Obama spoken for just 15 more minutes, he would have used the first person singular more than 272 times in one speech—exceeding all the words in the Gettysburg Address.

In one 68-word passage–in which he vowed to act unilaterally if Congress did not enact legislation he liked–Obama used the first person singular five more times than the zero times Lincoln used it in his 272 words at Gettysburg.

Al Gore is having a stroke!

Brisbane hits coldest temperature in 103 years

Cold Snap for Queensland

If you are lucky enough to be reading this from the comfort of your blankets, it might be best to stay there, as Brisbane has hit its coldest temperatures in 103 years.

Not since July 28 1911 has Brisbane felt this cold, getting down to a brisk 2.6C at 6.41am.

At 7am, it inched up to 3.3C.

Matt Bass, meteorologist from BOM, said the region was well below our average temperatures.

“If it felt cold, that’s because it was, breaking that record is pretty phenomenal for Brisbane,” Bass said.

“The average for this time of year is 12C, so Brisbane was about 9C below average, it is pretty impressive really, to have the coldest morning in 103 years is a big record.”

The coldest place across the state was Oakey which got down to -6.1C, which was the coldest temperature for the town since 2011.

FREEZING: Records tumble with the temperature

BRRRR: Cold snap hits south of state

Brisbane wasn’t the only town hitting landmark temperatures with Clermont breaking its coldest record two days in a row.

 

“Clermont in the coal fields got down to -4.5 which is a new record for them, their previous record was -3.7, which was set yesterday, so they’ve re-broken their record two days in a row.”

All these cold temperatures are being brought on as cold air moves up from the south, combined with clear nights.

“We are seeing a series of cold fronts push really cold air across South Australia, Victoria and New South Wales, which has brought low level snow.

“Which is good for the ski fields down there, but once all that air moves up towards Queensland it is still very cold and it loses all that moisture that drops all over Victoria and those other areas.

“By the time it comes up here it is cold and dry and on clear nights like last night that cold dry air chills off really easily.”

The temperature gauge is starting to slowly rise in Brisbane sitting at a cool 3.6c shortly before 8am, with a top of 22c expected for today, although don’t get too excited as the cold temperatures are expected again tomorrow.

“There will be another cold morning tomorrow, probably not as cold as this morning but it will still be very frosty across the Darling Downs and the interior and very cold along much of the coastal strip as well.

“It will be maybe a degree or two warmer than this morning and then Monday will be slightly warmer.

“By Tuesday and Wednesday we will have a bit of cloud around, we are looking at temperatures back towards the average of around 11C.”

Other chilly areas were;

Warwick -5.9

Kingaroy -5.7

Applethorpe -5.4

Dalby -5.0

Clermont -4.5

Miles -4.3

Roma -4.3

Beaudesert -3.8

Ipswich/Amberley -2.5

Gympie -1.5

Charleville -1.5

Coolangatta 1.0 – coldest morning since July 2011

Sunshine Coast 2.0

Meanwhile, the cold snap is predicted to send vegetable prices soaring up to three times normal prices.

The combination of an unusually late start to winter plus a sudden plummet to near-record lows has confused the growing cycles of just about every plant.

WEATHER

(Frame content direct link: http://weather.news.com.au/widgets/local/?id=420.)

Queensland horticulture organisation Growcom chief advocate Rachel Mackenzie said the last fortnight’s weather has caused a significant reduction in availability of some fruits and vegetables.

“The first cold snap can be expected to affect production until the produce adapts to the cold and begins growing normally again,” said Ms Mackenzie.

“Yes, prices will go up in the short term, however from a very low base.

“In May and June the temperature was 5C to 6C above average. Consequently there was a flush of vegetables causing an oversupply which was disastrous for growers in terms of returns.

“Prices were very low and growers were not covering the cost of production at this time.

“The price rises are normal for this time of year and reflect the work of Mother Nature and the usual supply and demand issues experienced in the horticulture industry.

“Growers are price takers – produce prices are largely determined by the market rather than being set by producers.”

Broccoli, cucumbers, cauliflower, snow peas and lettuce are among the varieties tipped to be more pricey.

Commercial buyer for Clayfield Fresh Markets Mick Crouch, said broccoli typically sells for $3-$4 per kilogram at this time of year, but has already hit $10 per kilogram in some stores.

“When the cold snap hits, supply slows down and prices go up. The temperature either kills or freezes the crops and they don’t get enough heat to grow,” he said.

“We’ll start to see broccoli, snow peas, lettuce and cauliflower struggle next week. Cauliflowers will be at least $6 each, and corn will go up to $2 a cob – 50¢ is normal for this time of year, so it’s a 300 per cent increase.”

Food Connect founder Robert Pekin said growers in southeast Queensland were feeling the chill.

“Queensland is a big market for cucumber and zucchini, and things have basically halted in the paddock and even greenhouses,” he said.

“We have a cucumber farmer who said his crops have stayed at 1.5 inches long for the last three weeks.”

But the news isn’t all bad.

“The citrus farmers are loving it – it really sweetens up the blood oranges, and heirloom varieties of carrots and parsnips are doing really well, too,” he said.

TSA Allowing Illegal Aliens to fly without Identification

Posted: July 11, 2014 in Uncategorized

MCALLEN, Texas—Illegal aliens are being allowed to fly on commercial airliners without valid identification, according to the National Border Patrol Council (NBPC). “The aliens who are getting released on their own recognizance are being allowed to board and travel commercial airliners by simply showing their Notice to Appear forms,” NBPC’s Local 2455 Spokesman, Hector Garza, told Breitbart Texas.

“This is not the CBP [Customs and Border Protection] or another federal agency renting or leasing an aircraft, these are the same planes that the American public uses for domestic travel,” said Garza. “This just adds insult to injury. Not only are we releasing unknown illegal aliens onto American streets, but we are allowing them to travel commercially using paperwork that could easily be reproduced or manipulated on any home computer. The Notice to Appear form has no photo, anyone can make one and manipulate one. They do not have any security features, no watermark, nothing. They are simply printed on standard copy paper based on the information the illegal alien says is the truth.”

Spokesman Garza continued, “We do not know who these people are, we often have to solely rely on who they say they are, where they say they came from, and the history they say they have. We know nothing about most of them, ICE releases them into the American public, and now they are boarding aircraft at will with a simple paper document that anyone can easily alter or reproduce themselves.”

The shocking assertions by Garza were further validated by the national body of the NBPC. Breitbart Texas obtained an exclusive statement from the NBPC.

“The National Border Patrol Council adamantly opposes the decision of DHS to release the illegal aliens who have been transported from the Rio Grande Valley Border Patrol Sector to other locations for processing. The lack of consequences has furthered this crisis and will only continue to do so. The fact that TSA is accepting the I-862 (Notice to Appear) as a form of identification and allowing illegal aliens to travel commercially shows just how little regard the federal government has for its own immigration laws.”

Breitbart Texas also spoke with Shawn Moran, the vice president of the NBPC and he stated, “Why waste money and effort transporting people from the RGV if we are only going to release them with no real way to track them? Why are we allowing them to travel commercially using paperwork that could easily be reproduced or manipulated on any home computer.”

Spokesman Garza highlighted the significance of the NBPC’s assertions regarding security threats posed to the American public and stated, “The threat this poses from terrorists upon the American people is absolutely unacceptable. Central Americans are not the only people crossing our border and being released. Does anyone actually think that cartels and others criminal or possible terrorist organizations are not taking advantage of the fact that we are having to leave our border wide open while we reassigning the majority of our agents to process family units and minors? Of course this situation is being exploited by such threats.”

The concerns raised by the NBPC about possible security risks, especially in regards to the safety of commercial airliners, are reinforced by a 2012 United Nations (UN) report previously covered by this reporter. The UN Office on Drugs and Crime’s “Transnational Organized Crime in Central America and the Caribbean” revealed that individuals from the terror-prone Somalia were traveling to Central America in efforts to illegally enter the United States. The report states:

“Central Americans are not the only ones being smuggled through Mexico to the United States. Irregular migrants from the Horn of Africa (Eritrea, Somalia, and Ethiopia), as well as South Asia (Bangladesh, Nepal, India), China, and other African and Asian states are being smuggled through Central America.”

In light of the UN report, possible public safety risks posed by illegal aliens who claim to be from Central America flying unidentified and without effective documentation are further illuminated by a previous in-depth analysis of Somalia by the nonpartisan Council on Foreign Relations. They wrote on Somalia:

“Its porous borders mean that individuals can enter without visas, and once inside the country, enjoy an almost complete lack of law enforcement. Somalia has long served as a passageway from Africa to the Middle East based on its coastal location on the Horn of Africa, just a boat ride away from Yemen. These aspects make Somalia a desirable haven for transnational terrorists, something Al-Qaeda has tried to capitalize on before, and is trying again now.”

Breitbart Texas reached out to the TSA (Transportation Security Administration) for comment without receiving a response at the time of this article’s publication.

Border Patrol agent Hector Garza stated in an interview on the Thursday broadcast of Fox News Channel’s “Hannity” that the U.S. government is “completing the smuggling cycle” of unaccompanied minors into the United States, and asked “why would anyone want to hire a smuggler when the US government is actually doing it for free?”  He stated that “we apprehend [unaccompanied minors] we process these illegals and then release them to their family members in the US we just completed that smuggling cycle.” He also stated the US is giving illegal immigrants from countries other than Mexico a “free pass.”

Garza added that the surge of unaccompanied minors and the violence directed at Border Patrol agents by cartels has placed a strain on the Border Patrol, and as a result “resources are running dry and morale is at a very low level,” but that despite this “agents come to work every day with their head up high.”
