Judge to Janet Napolitano: You Have To Deport Illegal Immigrants

Disgusted ICE Agent Faces Down 'Gang of Eight' in Dramatic Senate Testimony

In Senate testimony (video below), President of the National Immigration and Customs Enforcement Council Crane slammed the Obama administration and the Senate’s Gang of Eight for including advocates for illegal aliens, but excluding law enforcement from providing input on the new ‘immigration reform’ legislation.

Published on Apr 22, 2013
WASHINGTON, April 22--Testimony from Chris Crane, ICE Officer and President of the National ICE Council representing our nation's ICE officers, agents and staff. Crane is also a former marine.

Today's hearing was on the Gang of Eight's immigration proposal, which the Majority hopes to rush to a vote before the American people know what's in it."

Here’s what Mr. Crane said on Huckabee:

Last week, ICE union chief Chris Crane won a stunning initial court victory in his lawsuit against the Obama Administration. As we reported, Federal Judge Federal Judge Reed O’Connor told the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) that they had no power to refuse to deport illegal aliens, and that he was likely to strike down Obama’s virtual “DACA” amnesty for millions of illegal aliens. The ruling stunned Washington, and Crane’s lawsuit could derail Obama’s four-year effort to undermine immigration enforcement nationwide.

Judge to Janet Napolitano: You have to deport illegal immigrants

Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano does not have the authority to refuse to enforce laws that require illegal immigrants to face deportation, according to the federal judge hearing the Immigration and Customs Enforcement union’s lawsuit against DHS.

“The court finds that DHS does not have discretion to refuse to initiate removal proceedings [when the law requires it],” U.S. District Judge Reed O’Connor said Wednesday, per Business Week. O’Connor asked DHS and the ICE union to offer additional arguments before he makes a final ruling on the legality of President Obama’s “deferred action on childhood arrivals” program, which invoked prosecutorial discretion as a means of allowing people to stay in the country if they would have qualified for amnesty under the Dream Act, which never passed Congress.

The judge’s comments come one day after Napolitano scolded the union, during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on the Gang of Eight’s immigration bill, for challenging the policy she and Obama have implemented.

“There are tensions with union leadership, unfortunately,” Napolitano told Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., on Tuesday. “Here’s what I expect as a former prosecutor and attorney general: that is that law enforcement agents will enforce the law in accordance with the guidance they are given [by] their superiors.”

Sessions faulted Napolitano for refusing to meet with the ICE officers’ union. “I have never heard of a situation in which a group of law officers sued their supervisor, and you, for blocking them from following the law,” he said. “They weren’t complaining about pay, benefits, working conditions — they were saying their very oath they took to enforce the law is being blocked by rules and regulations and policies established from on high, and that this is undermining their ability to do what they are sworn to do.”

Thank you Chris Crane for having the courage to stand up against this out of control government!

Colorado Sheriff To Obama: "Your Puppets Will Be Removed From Office"

Sheriff Maketa To Obama: "Your Puppets Will Be Removed From Office"


The following is a copy of the post from Sheriff Terry Maketa of Colorado's Facebook page.  He posted this in response to the lie/hate filled speech Obama gave on 4/17/2013:

El Paso County(CO) Sheriff Terry Maketa Rips Liar Obama Your Puppets Will Be Removed From Office; Your Legacy Will Be Remembered In History As The Ultimate Failure Based On Lie After Lie

- By Sheriff Terry Meketa @ Facebook -

I am truly appalled at the president's claim that 90% of Americans support the proposed gun control laws. His speech writer should be fired. He claims these bills would have prevented another Sandy Hook or Aurora shooting, yet he has no evidence to support that claim. Factually speaking, the proposed laws in Colorado would not have prevented one incident, nor would the Federal proposed bills. Don't forget one of the sponsors, Congresswoman DeGette, actually thought magazines were the same as bullets. That's the kind of familiarity those who sponsor these bills have with the subject.

Mr. President, just because the polls tell you what buzz phrases to use to seek your agenda, it does not mean the American people are so naive to follow your continuous record of lies. Remember there are many of us that remember the day you promised to reduce the National deficit by 50%, and you did far more damage and tripled it with nothing to show but more people reliant on your handouts. The people are onto you and we will remember this at election time as you asked in your latest hollywood type speech. Here in Colorado, and at the federal level, your puppets will be removed from office and your legacy will be remembered in history as the ultimate failure based on lie after lie. Yes, your so-called promise of change is more lies, debt, and higher taxes on the middle class to pay for your failed promises. Please tout more successes of Chicago, such as their tax rates, the upside down pension fund, number of homicides, clearance rates or lack of clearances.

Our president even claimed Chicago as justification, for these gun control measures knowing full well that Chicago is the poster child of failure from gun control laws. Violence has increased since Chicago's gun control measures have been in place and they are more restrictive than any other city in this country. In simple terms, it got worse and his creation of so-called "sheep" to fend off the "wolf" have failed. The American people are not the sheep he wants to create. We will be heard and we will not follow his lies that lack scientific validation and truth. My heart goes out to all victims of any violence. Statistically speaking, more people are killed by items other than guns far more often, but our president doesn't want you to know that. Check the Bureau of Justice Statistics for yourself and do it before his administration manipulates them.

The president claims to be speaking for the victims, yet he chooses which victims, because I, as many of you, have witnessed victims from Aurora, Sandy Hook, and even Columbine plea with law makers to not pass measures that criminalize and punish the law abiding citizens for the acts of killers. They demonstrated common sense and showed true courage to stand against the lies and denounce the measures as ineffective. The promises of preventing these horrific acts in the future are misleading and even our own governor has admitted, here in Colorado, the similar guns bills would not have prevented tragedies such as Aurora and Sandy Hook. Our president is an embarrassment to our free society and so are his puppets. The next election will show just that. The president's posturing and agenda were truly seen for what they are, more lies and false promises, most importantly an agenda based on undeliverable promises. How embarrassing he uses the greatest failure in our nations' history for more gun control and people control- that failure being the murder capital of the United States, Chicago. Watch his statement on CNN and ask yourself how he can mention his home town as an example of justification. This is the city that arrested a 56 year old female researcher at the University of Illinois, Chicago, during the week of February 15th for bringing an unloaded weapon to work, in a secured box, to prevent it from being stolen by contractors working on her home. She was trying to prevent a crime and not be a victim. She was arrested and had to post a $25,000.00 bond to get out of jail and is now on suspension from work, pending criminal charges and awaiting trial.

This is what happens when emotionally charged laws are recklessly passed. Law abiding citizens are criminalized. Thankfully a majority of US Congress saw through these proposed lies and did what's right. Now we, the people of Colorado, need to send a message to the governor and the Capitol that we will not be criminalized, nor will we stand by and allow our rights to be infringed and stripped based on lies and unenforceable, agenda driven bad laws. That is why I will not back off this issue and will proudly support my rights, to access to courts, with 37 other sheriffs in a legal action against these ridiculous, unconstitutional laws.

I have been asked by many, what can I do to help? I will ask that you do not lay down, do not go silent; that is what they hope for and expect. Do not let them convert you to sheep. Evil prospers when good people do nothing. Do not let evil prosper. I will not quit and please don't you give up and quit.

BREAKING NEWS: Why Is The Saudi National Questioned After Boston Marathon Bombing Being Deported On 'National Security Grounds'- After Obama Met With Saudi Foreign Minister Today

Video: Steve Emerson reports Saudi national ‘person of interest’ is being deported on Tuesday

Tonight on Hannity, Steve Emerson of the Investigative Project on Terrorism, reported that his sources are telling him that Abdul Rahman Ali Alharbi, the Saudi national who was a person of interest for less than 24 hours, is being deported to Saudi Arabia on Tuesday.
Why? According to Emerson, based on National Security grounds.
 Reuters is reporting that Obama met today with the Saudi Foreign Minister in an unscheduled meeting:
U.S. President Barack Obama met with Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Saud al-Faisal at the White House on Wednesday and discussed the conflict in Syria, a spokeswoman said.
The meeting was not on Obama’s public schedule.
So, if Alharbi is not a person of interest, why is he being deported?

Obama meets with Saudi foreign minister, discusses Syria

(Reuters) President Barack Obama met with Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Saud al-Faisal at the White House on Wednesday and discussed the conflict in Syria, a spokeswoman said.
The meeting was not on Obama's public schedule.

The spokeswoman, Caitlin Hayden, said the president joined a meeting between the Saudi official and Obama's national security adviser, Tom Donilon.

"The president and Prince Saud al-Faisal reaffirmed the strong partnership between the United States and Saudi Arabia and discussed developments in the region, including the conflict in Syria," Hayden said in a statement.

Now we are learning that this Saudi National is being deported on 'National Security Grounds!!!  This news just broke on the Sean Hannity show.

Pamela Geller of Atlas Shrugs has more on this.  Also, Walid Shoebat has many articles about this suspect and ties to Al-Qaeda Terrorists.  

Check out the articles below:

Saudi National in Boston Bombing being deported on "National Security Grounds"

Steve Emerson just broke the shocking news that the Saudi National, Abdul al-Harbi, first questioned in the Boston bombing, is going to be deported on "national security grounds." He is from a very powerful Saudi family with many terrorist ties. Abdul al-Harbi is a devout Muslim from Medina.
I said it takes longer than 15 hours to investigate all of Abdul al-Harbi's relatives, friends, acquaintances, and business and school friends. 
Perhaps a quick look at the Arabic sources should raise the eyebrows of every American relative to the extent of the problem at hand. Many from Al-Harbi’s clan are steeped in terrorism and are members of Al-Qaeda. Out of a list of 85 terrorists listed by the Saudi government shows several of Al-Harbi clan to have been active fighters in Al-Qaeda:
When I heard he was from a very powerful Saudi family, I worried about this kind of thing happening.
Secretary of State Kerry's meeting with the Saudi Foreign Minister Saud Al-Faisal was abruptly closed to the press the day Abdul al-Harbi was being questioned. There is no doubt in my mind that this was discussed.

“Innocent” Saudi has ties to several Al-Qaeda Terrorists 

by Walid Shoebat
A couple of weeks ago we warned America about the very serious problem of Saudi infiltration; many of these Saudi nationals are criminals and terrorists.
After the bombings, a Saudi by the name of Abdul Rahman Ali Al-Harbi was hospitalized and became a ‘suspect’, then a ‘person of interest’. His apartment was searched by federal and local authorities. No confirmation has been given so far to his involvement. The Media were quick to claim his innocence, of course.
This brings us to the Boston marathon bombings. Foreign Policy is reporting that he’s ‘no longer a person of interest’, which means he’s “innocent”, right?
Perhaps a quick look at the Arabic sources should raise the eyebrows of every American relative to the extent of the problem at hand. Many from Al-Harbi’s clan are steeped in terrorism and are members of Al-Qaeda. Out of a list of 85 terrorists listed by the Saudi government shows several of Al-Harbi clan to have been active fighters in Al-Qaeda:
#15 Badr Saud Uwaid Al-Awufi Al-Harbi
#73 Muhammad Atiq Uwaid Al-Awufi Al-Harbi
#26 Khalid Salim Uwaid Al-Lahibi Al-Harbi
#29 Raed Abdullah Salem Al-Thahiri Al-Harbi
#43 Abdullah Abdul Rahman Muhammad Al-Harbi (leader)
#60 Fayez Ghuneim Humeid Al-Hijri Al-Harbi

Former Britain Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher dies after suffering stroke

Margaret Thatcher's last House of Commons

Former Britain Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher dies after suffering stroke

Former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher has died after suffering a stroke.

"It is with great sadness that Mark and Carol Thatcher announced that their mother Baroness Thatcher died peacefully following a stroke this morning,” Thatcher spokesperson Lord Bell said in a statement.

Thatcher, an outspoken woman known to many as "The Iron Lady," was 87. She led Britain's Conservatives to three election victories from 1979 to 1990, the longest continuous period in office by a British prime minister since the early 19th century. Alongside former U.S. President Ronald Reagan, Thatcher battled against communism and saw the Berlin Wall get torn down in 1989.

On Monday, British Prime Minister David Cameron cut short his trip to several European countries after the announcement of Thatcher's death.

"We have lost a great leader, a great prime minister and a great Briton,'' Cameron said in a statement.
Buckingham Palace said Queen Elizabeth was sad to hear the news of Thatcher's passing, adding that she would be sending a private message of sympathy to the family today.

During 11 bruising years as prime minister, Thatcher transformed her country by a ruthless dedication to free markets and infuriated European allies. She transferred large chunks of the economy from the state hands to private ownership.

"The problem with socialism is that eventually you run out of other people's money," she once said, according to Reuters.

Thatcher retired from public engagements in 2002 following a series of small strokes, and was only occasionally seen in public since then.

To her fervent admirers, battling Maggie was an icon, a national savior who ended Britain's post-World War II cycle of confrontation and decline -- eclipsed as a 20th-century British leader only by Winston Churchill.

Her vehement critics, however, saw her as a bellicose figure at home and abroad, a destroyer of industries and, with it, a way of life.

She was a sharply divisive figure even within her Conservative Party, especially on the issue of European integration; the party declined into a bickering shambles after she fell from power.

Between 1979 and 1990, her governments sold a string of nationalized industries into private ownership, crushed the once-mighty labor unions, defeated Argentina in the Falkland Islands war and preached military readiness to the Western alliance.

A Colorado Sheriff Responds To President Obama

A Colorado Sheriff Responds To President Obama

Published on Apr 3, 2013
President Obama visited Denver on April 3, 2013 to push his excessive gun legislation. Not one sheriff in the state of Colorado was included in the event. The sheriffs of Colorado representing 62 counties were kept out of the event because their legislative needs were not useful to the president. Obama's purposeful shunning of the state sheriffs could not silence them. Listen as Sheriff Shayne Heap from Elbert County Colorado responds to the president's comments.

Groups led by insider trader, child abuser got Obamacare Co-Op loans

Millions of Americans may get their health insurance coverage through co-operatives being established under a $2 billion Obamacare program that has been shielded in secrecy and is now under investigation by the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. (AP Photo)

Federal officials approved Obamacare loans totaling $127 million last year to groups led by individuals whose backgrounds included an insider trading conviction and another with a long history of child sexual abuse, The Washington Examiner has learned.

The loans -- which must be repaid at a future date -- are to fund health insurance co-operative startups in Louisiana and Maine. They will compete with private sector health insurance providers under a $2 billion Obamacare initiative to fund 24 co-op startups nationwide.

Both the Maine and Louisiana co-ops are among 13 under investigation by the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee headed by Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif.

In the Maine case, federal officials approved a $62 million loan to Maine Community Health Options even though its president had recently committed suicide after state police accused the co-op's president of molesting teenage boys for decades.

Despite extensive media coverage of the scandal, federal officials approved the loan five months before Maine State Police made public a 104-page report detailing the abuse allegations over a 36-year period.

The Louisiana case involves Louisiana Health Cooperative and CEO Terry Shilling. The Securities and Exchange Commission sanctioned Shilling in 1998 for "insider trading" as a health care executive.

The Department of Health and Human Services' Center for Consumer Information and Insurance Oversight manages the loan awards.

In the Maine case, the Rev. Bob Carlson took his life after state police confronted him with the sexual abuse allegations.

Carlson had been widely respected as a civic and religious leader in Maine for many years. He served as a senior pastor at a church, chaplain at a local university and deputy sheriff. He was president of the Maine Primary Care Association and the Maine Community Health Options co-op.

But that image was shattered by the state police report's description of how Carlson took advantage of his positions to approach young boys from ages 11 to 18.

Officials also discovered after his suicide that Carlson had lied on his resume about his credentials, falsely claiming a bachelor's degree from the University of Maryland, as well as being a New York Theological Seminary graduate and having taken theological training at the Episcopal Theological Seminary in Cambridge, Mass.

Kevin Lewis, CEO of the Maine co-op, told The Washington Examiner that he informed federal officials four days after Carlson's suicide. The Maine loan was approved by CCIIO in April 2012, but the police report on Carlson's long history of abusing teenage boys only became public in August of that year.

Lewis said CCIIO did not consider the scandal to be a problem. "It was not really an issue in terms of the standing of our application," he said.

Spokesmen for CCIIO declined to comment.

In the Louisiana case, Schilling was sanctioned for insider trading while working at Georgia-based HealthSource Inc., where he bought 1,900 shares of that company's stock shortly after receiving a "confidential briefing" about an impending merger with CIGNA, according to the SEC.

Schilling was sanctioned and fined $10,000. Shilling left HealthSource prior to the merger, according to a CIGNA spokesman.

Even so, Schilling's group received a $65 million loan.

Neither Schilling nor CCIIO responded to a reporter's multiple telephone calls and emails seeking comment.

Judy Nadler, a government ethics expert and former mayor of Santa Clara, Calif., said the Obamacare co-op loan program needs much more transparency.

"How can individuals who have some negative experiences and scrapes with the law, how is it they could come to the top of the order when it comes to handing out the money?" she asked.

Tom Miller, a federal health expert at the American Enterprise Institute, doubts CCIIO did due diligence reviews. "What is the screening criteria, if any, or on what basis are these awards based?" he asked.

The Washington Examiner's previous stories on the Obamacare co-ops are here, here, here, here and here.

 Obamacare co-ops being created behind closed doors 

Secrecy shrouds President Obama's $2 billion program to launch 24 new co-ops designed to compete with private insurance companies under the chief executive's landmark health care reform.

An obscure agency in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has awarded loans of all but $100 million of the funds appropriated under President Obama's health care overhaul for the new organizations, known as Consumer Operated and Oriented Plans.

That worries some in Congress, including Rep. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., who told The Washington Examiner that "we want to know, what's their due diligence, what's their process, how are they arriving at these decisions? What are the protections in place for policyholders? Where are the protections for the U.S. taxpayer?"

The Center for Consumer Information and Insurance Oversight, or CCIIO, approved applicants for the federal money even though few have any experience in providing health insurance to consumers. Under the law, the loans must be repaid.

CCIIO officials have not made public their criteria for evaluating loan applicants. Those officials declined to be interviewed.

The co-ops were proposed during the health care reform debate in Congress by then-Sen. Kent Conrad, D-N.D., as an acceptable alternative to the single-payer public option preferred by many Senate Democrats.

A 15-member panel set up by Obama's health care reforms to oversee the loans held only three public meetings, then disbanded 21 months ago. HHS paid consulting firm Deloitte $2.4 million to review loan applications, according to A Deloitte spokesman declined to comment.

The lack of openness became public last December when CCIIO denied the loan application of Illinois-based SimpleHx. "I really don't know why they choose one over the other," Coe Schlicher, a SimpleHx principal, told The Washington Examiner. "We have not found a way to gain access to the review process notes or the results of their scoring system."

Congress also has been kept in the dark. In an April 2012 letter, four leaders of the House Energy and Commerce Committee demanded that HHS produce information about the eligibility standards and decision-making process used for evaluating co-op loan applicants.

And in May 2012, Sens. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, and Michael Ezni, R-Wyo., asked for details about the program from HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius. Sebelius has responded to neither request.

Congressional leaders point to a 2013 Office of Management and Budget analysis that projected that as many as 43 percent of the co-ops could default. If that happens, taxpayers will foot the bill, as they did with bankrupt companies like Solyndra under Obama's clean energy subsidies.

Failed Iowa entrepreneur awarded $112 million for Obamacare co-ops

Federal officials awarded $112 million to fund new Obamacare health insurance cooperatives in Iowa and Nebraska to a group whose politically connected chief financial officer recorded at least three business flops since 2009.

CoOportunity Health, an Ames, Iowa, group founded by CFO Stephen Ringlee, received the federal funds as a tax-free loan from the Center for Consumer Information and Insurance Oversight in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

The loans are part of an Obamacare initiative that includes $2 billion to fund groups selected behind closed doors by the CCIIO. Loans have been awarded to create co-ops to compete with private health insurers in 24 states so far.

The Washington Examiner recently exposed more than $500 million in CCIIO loans awarded to politically connected individuals to create co-ops in New York, New Jersey, Oregon, Illinois and Ohio.

The White House Office of Management and Budget has projected that as many as 43 percent of the startup co-ops will fail.

Ringlee appears at first glance to be a financial entrepreneur who could help emerging health insurance cooperatives. CoOportunity's website boasts that Ringlee "has more than 30 years of senior financial experience [and] 20 years of entrepreneurship and venture investing. ..."

But there is much more to the Ringlee story. He founded YourVive, an Amazon-style online green shopping club, in 2009, as well as American Food Venture Forum and International Venture Forum on Food, both in 2007.

YourVive was intended to be a high-profile "green" online shopping club, according to CoOportunity's website. A promotional brochure for the startup described YourVive as an "online marketplace that will offer green products at affordable prices."
