CNN, which bills itself as “The Most Trusted Name in News,” sure knows how to put a weird damper on a perfectly heartwarming, patriotic and downright tearjerker story during the week of Veterans Day.

The video story is entitled “Sailor mom surprises daughter at school.” It first appeared on CNN on Thursday — on loan from an Indianapolis Fox affiliate.

Prior to CNN’s presentation of the video (just after the mandatory commercial), a warning message appeared for several seconds in bold font atop a two-tone black background.

“Please be advised you are about to hear an excerpt of the national anthem,” the warning declared.

Got that? Brace yourselves, America, because a snippet of the song expressing America’s patriotic soul is about to hit your tender ears.

A group of women is using infants and toddlers to panhandle on the streets and subway platforms of Manhattan in what appears to be a coordinated effort, and they consistently refuse city services that could help them, an NBC 4 New York I-Team investigation has found.

Over the past month, the I-Team has documented at least nine women spending long days begging with babies, mostly on midtown sidewalks. The women commute together, splitting up to beg for money. They change their children’s diapers on the pavement and display signs claiming they’re jobless or hungry.

During the day, some of the women meet for lunch. At night, the I-Team has spotted groups of them meeting at Grand Central Terminal where they travel via the C train to the same building in East New York, Brooklyn.

The I-Team tried to interview the panhandling women, but most were not interested in talking. They consistently hurried away when faced with questions about why they choose to beg with babies, whether it’s a business and whether it’s appropriate for the children. They shoved members of the I-Team when asked questions; one made a lewd gesture.

So, what’s the difference between Romas using kids, and Mexicans/Latinas using their kids to pick America’s pocket? Not a whole helluva lot.

MCALLEN – Several Central American families are safe and sound in the Rio Grande Valley after traveling hundreds of miles in cold and rainy conditions.

Today was the Valley’s first real cold snap of the season. Many people have a place to go to keep warm. It is a different story for illegal immigrants traveling by foot into the U.S.

A bus carrying Central American families arrived late this afternoon at Sacred Heart Catholic Church in McAllen.

It was evident the families were cold and tired. The women wore sweaters and jackets and their children were bundled in blankets.

The families said they were relieved to finally be at a place that is warm and safe.

Glenda Dubon and her seven-year-old son Edgar traveled for 20 days from Guatemala to the Valley.

Dubon said, “The experience we had was very hard because we ended up sleeping under the mountains. We used sacks to sleep. It was extremely cold.”

Invaders already have “amnesty” or they wouldn’t be here. The issue is now legalization and what will the dickless Republicans do about it. If history is any indicator, not a gawd damn thing.

WCVB Channel 5 Boston :

Only a handful of people were able to speak on a proposal that could make Westminster the first in the nation to ban all sales of tobacco products when boos and shouts from the crowd shut down the public hearing.

Burwell was speaking on a public Google hangout with prominent Latina bloggers to promote Saturday’s opening of the Obamacare enrollment period when she shifted to her thoughts on immigration reform.


(6:06) “DREAMers are not able to be covered in the marketplace. And this is an issue that I think is more than a health care issue — it is an immigration issue,” Burwell said in response to a question about whether families with mixed immigration statuses can get coverage.
(6:57) “Everyone should come on [to the Obamacare exchanges],” Burwell said, “And folks should not be scared, because this is not information…no questions will be asked, this is not about an immigration issue.”

Obama is planning to unveil a 10-part plan for overhauling U.S. immigration policy via executive action — including suspending deportations for millions — as early as next Friday, a source close to the White House told Fox News.

The president’s plans were contained in a draft proposal from a U.S. government agency. The source said the plan could be announced as early as Nov. 21, though the date might slip a few days pending final White House approval.

Obama was briefed at the White House by Homeland Security officials before leaving on his Asia-Pacific trip last week, Fox News has learned.

The plan contains 10 initiatives than span everything from boosting border security to improving pay for immigration officers.

It seems incredible, but a single missing word could turn a water law into a government land grab so horrendous even a U.S. Supreme Court justice warned it would “put the property rights of every American entirely at the mercy of Environmental Protection Agency employees.”

The missing word is “navigable.” The Obama administration is proposing a rule titled “Definition of ‘Waters of the United States’ Under the Clean Water Act,” which would strike “navigable” from American water law and redefine any piece of land that is wet at least part of the year, no matter how remote or isolated it may be from truly navigable waters, as “waters of the United States,” or WOTUS.

The proposed rule would provide EPA and the Corps of Engineers (as well as litigious environmental groups) with the power to dictate the land-use decisions of homeowners, small businesses and local communities throughout the United States. There would be virtually no limit to the federal government’s authority over private property.
