Southern border fence? Works great here!
World Net Daily - 

While the merits of building a fence along the USA’s southern border are debated in Congress, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says his nation’s new border fence is working very well, thank you.

In comments spoken Sunday and reported in the Times of Israel, Netanyahu claimed Israel’s new security fence along the Israel-Egypt border has not only stemmed the tide of illegal immigration to Israel, but has also protected the Jewish state from terrorists operating in the Sinai Peninsula.

Every day that passes “underscores how correct and how important the decision was to build the fence in the south,” the prime minister said. “You must remember that this fence is equipped with very advanced means . to protect the State of Israel against the double threat of illegal migration and terrorism from Sinai.”

Netanyahu, speaking publicly ahead of his weekly cabinet meeting, argued the fence has blocked 99 percent of African migrants from reaching Israel.

“In practice, nobody has entered and the few who have arrived did not reach Israel’s cities,” he continued. “The fence has completely stopped illegal migration to Israel, but it also has an additional function - namely counterterrorism.”

The Times of Israel reports the border fence, which has taken years to construct and is still not finished, carries an estimated cost of $377 million. It was originally planned merely as a barrier to keep out migrants, but was upgraded to include motion sensors, cameras and heightened security after multiple border incidents in the wake of the 2011 Egyptian revolution, which resulted in a drastic decline in law and order in the Sinai.

In the U.S., meanwhile, lawmakers over the years have approved various southern border fence measures, but then revoked those same laws and then negotiated just how many miles worth of fence to actually build or not build - all leading to the current status of a piecemeal fence that simply funnels illegal immigrants from one border crossing to another and has left proponents on both sides of the fence debate dissatisfied.

A WND analysis of the recently passed Senate version of immigration reform reveals the new measures, even with amendments passed to beef up border security, will still leave loopholes for numerous gaps within the fence itself.

Congressman Raul Labrador Slaps Down David Brooks Twice on Meet The Press
Newsbusters - 

Have you ever wished that errant journalists could get their noses rubbed in their own absurdities and outright falsehoods like puppy dogs who make a mess? Well, if you had been watching Meet The Press today then you would have seen Congressman Raul Labrador of Idaho do just that to the New York Times house "conservative" David Brooks who was slapped down not once but twice. 

As you can see in this video and below the fold, Brooks didn't learn his lesson after being slapped down by Labrador for uttering absurdities about the Senate immigration bill. Labrador was forced to perform an encore performance after Brooks flat out uttered a falsehood. First we see Brooks describe how wonderful he thought the Senate immigration bill was:

Man chased Gold Coast robber because ´I was sick of it´ - Chicago Tribune, by Rosemary Regina Sobol Posted By: JoniTx- Sun, 07 21 2013 11:21:08 GMT As real estate broker Gary Dailey made his way through the throngs of people gathered on the Gold Coast lakefront Thursday night to enjoy the fireworks, what was initially all about families, children and the Fourth of July changed into something else. Dailey, 51, on his way to meet his girlfriend near a "quiet crowd" of children and adults, was confronted with something less quiet - a large, noisy group of individuals crowded into the center of a tunnel that led under Lake Shore Drive near Division Street. "They were screaming and yelling and scaring everybody,"

NYT Headline Mistakenly Claims Andy Murray Is from England
Big Government - 

After Andy Murray became the first British man to win Wimbledon in 77 years, the New York Times mistakenly wrote that Murray was from England. Murray is in fact from Scotland, which makes up Great Britain along with England and Wales. 

As Breitbart Sports' Mary Chastain wrote:

Scotland native Andy Murray defeated Novak Djokovic 6-4, 7-5, 6-4 to win the 2013 Wimbledon title. In two years, he ended two British droughts at Wimbledon. Last year he made history as the first British male to reach the Wimbledon final since Henry “Bunny” Austin in 1938 and now he is the first British man to win Wimbledon since Fred Perry in 1936.

As Twitchy pointed out, the New York Times' original headline was, "After 77 Years, Murray and England Rule":

The Times has since changed its headline to, "After 77 Years, Murray and Britain Rule."

Churches boost security as violent incidents grow
World Net Daily - 

(FLORIDA TODAY) “This is the norm in our world’s culture and there’s a need for security wherever we go nowadays,” said Gilchriest, who oversees security efforts at Freedom Christian and also is the CEO of Opaque Security, an international company that trains churches and synagogues to protect congregations. “We need to be prepared.”

Would you be prepared to defend yourself and other innocents in a surprise attack? Find out what one courageous churchgoer did to protect others in the DVD: “Shooting Back: The Right and Duty of Self-Defense”

It is an increasingly common sentiment in churches, synagogues and mosques nationwide as the number of deadly episodes at sanctuaries has soared over the last decade, and mass shootings at elementary schools, malls and movie theaters have left Americans feeling like it could happen anywhere.

Just last month, the federal government stepped in with a first-ever report outlining security recommendations for houses of worship. The 38-page plan, released just days after a man was shot and wounded during a Catholic Mass in Salt Lake City, advises congregations to plan for potential emergencies, including what police call random “active shooter” situations. Among the advice offered by the federal government: run, hide or, as a last resort, fight.

'Breitbart News Sunday' on SXM 125: VA Gov. in Crisis, Tea Party Strikes Back on Immigration
Big Government - 

On Breitbart News Sunday on Sirius XM Patriot Ch. 125 from 7 p.m to 10 p.m EDT, Breitbart News Executive Chairman Stephen K. Bannon, who hosts the show, will discuss Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell's problems with crony capitalism, the battle over immigration in the House, and Obama's foreign policy crisis in Egypt with Breitbart News reporters and newsmakers.

Breitbart News editor Mike Flynn and reporter Michael Patrick Leahy will be on the show to discuss rumors that McDonnell's spokesman denied this weekend about McDonnell's possible resignation over his failure to report a Rolex watch he received as a gift from a donor. McDonnell may have violated the state's ethics laws in not reporting the gift and is being investigated for using taxpayer funds on personal expenses for himself and his family.

Shaun Kenney, one of the editors of the influential Virginia politics, Bearing Drift, will also be on the show to discuss the story his site posted that has stirred the controversy this weekend. Kenney has said the Bearing Drift contributor who wrote the story may no longer be a contributor if his story--about McDonnell's potential resignation--is proven to be false. Kenney is a well-respected figure in Virginia politics and conservative circles. He--along with those like Norm Leahy at Bearing Drift--have worked to not only battle liberals but to keep Republicans in check from going against conservative principles or campaign promises. 

Jenny Beth Martin, of Tea Party Patriots, will be on the show to discuss how national and local Tea Party groups plan to oppose the amnesty legislation. She will discuss where Republican Senators--such as Tennessee's Lamar Alexander and Florida's Marco Rubio--who voted for the Senate bill stand. 

Daniel Horowitz from the Madison Project, a vital organization that keeps a scorecard of Republican legislators from Republican-leaning states, will be on the program to discuss Alexander's chances of getting reelected.

Guests will also discuss the Wall Street Journal editorial that referred to Republicans who opposed the amnesty bill as "blood and soil" Republicans. Prominent conservatives--like Sarah Palin and Rush Limbaugh--have said the immigration bill would devastate and gut the working class and is being financed by "big money" interests that just want an influx of cheap labor.

Flynn, along with Breitbart News investigative reporter Matthew Boyle will discuss where the immigration battle stands in the House as the House gets set to debate the issue next week and will talk about how Bush administration officials have always wanted to pass "comprehensive immigration reform."

Breitbart's Brandon Darby will also be on the show to discuss his reporting on how a porous Mexican border may be a "global pathway" for illegals from Asia and Africa to enter the United States. 

Breitbart's Liz Sheld and Kerry Picket will be on the program to discuss how President Barack Obama's foreign policy is in shambles in the Middle East, specifically in Egypt regarding the Muslim Brotherhood. 

Bannon hosts the weekly three-hour show on Sirius XM Patriot channel 125 that helps set the narrative and news cycle for the following week.

ObamaCare Is Rapidly Collapsing
Real Clear Politics -  Rich Lowry, National Review
Washington is riven by conflict and deep-seated division. It is rare indeed when both sides can agree on anything consequential. Therefore it is incredibly heartening that there is now bipartisan agreement that the implementation of Obamacare is a mess.Republicans have long maintained this, but now the Obama administration has lent its implicit assent with its astonishing decision to delay by a year the law's employer mandate. This is what the administration calls, via a blog post by the Treasury Department's assistant secretary for tax policy that announced the decision,...
