During an obviously politically motivated hearing on July 21st by the Senate’s Committee On The Judiciary titled ‘Oversight of the Administration’s Misdirected Immigration Enforcement Policies: Examining the Impact on Public Safety and Honoring the Victims,’ Jim Steinle, whose daughter was recently killed by an undocumented citizen in San Francisco, California, testified.

In the days after the Chattanooga, Tennessee killing of four U.S. marines by Muslim immigrant Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez, the right is more frenzied, with calls for an end to not just immigration but to “Muslim immigration” to the US. Like a mad dog chasing the latest red meat, the right wing have turned their anger from Mexican immigrant Juan Francisco Lopez Sanchez, who pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder of Kathryn Steinle, 31, to all Muslim immigrants. Republican Presidential hopeful and US Senator, Rand Paul, told Breitbart News that he’s planning to investigate Muslim immigration problems and he definitely wants to restrict immigration from predominantly Muslim countries.

President Obama is on his way to Kenya as I write and he is expected to disappoint most Kenyans by not visiting his father’s home or grave. Unless he plans a secret trip there I am not at all surprised by his refusal. Obama’s so called autobiography “Dreams From My Father” was a fantasy in which the young Barack painted a word picture of his father he knew was not true but writing his version played well for his political aspirations.

"Yes, I’m A Worthless Saudi Goon!”

It’s not my job. It’s not the normal purpose of Obama’s America. But yes there are very rare occasions when Barack Obama must be defended against those who are so pathetic they make President Obama look good. This is sure one of those rare instances – the agreement with Iran. The opponents represent everything wrong in America and the world. Those opposing the agreement a motley crew of hypocrites and far worse.
