Tea Party groups are not supporting Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) and the rest of the bipartisan “Gang of Eight” and their immigration bill despite erroneous reporting by Politico, Breitbart News has learned.
Politico’s lead story Tuesday afternoon claims that Tea Partiers are the “new ally” of the Gang of Eight pushing immigration reform. “Immigration reform supporters are about to get some new conservative bonafides — prominent tea party backers,” Politico’s Anna Palmer and Tarini Parti wrote. “Several conservative activists and tea party group leaders are meeting with Sen. Marco Rubio Tuesday afternoon to discuss immigration reform, including a list of what they support – and don’t.”
— Oops Was he framed??? Released, reason not clear. Apparently he wasn’t the tea party guy they wanted him to be.
The Mississippi man charged with sending poisoned letters to President Barack Obama, a U.S. senator and a state judge was released from jail on Tuesday, federal official said, though the reason for the release wasn’t immediately clear.
Jeff Woodfin, chief deputy with the U.S. Marshals Service in Oxford, Miss., said Paul Kevin Curtis has been released from custody. Woodfin said he doesn’t know if there were any conditions on the release.
The development comes hours after officials canceled a detention and preliminary hearing without explaining the reason for the change.
His lawyer Christi McCoy, who has been pushing for the charges to be dropped, said in a text message Tuesday that she could only confirm that her client has been released.
“I can tell you he is with his family,” McCoy said.
McCoy has said that there is a news conference scheduled for 5 p.m. CDT with federal authorities and defense attorneys.
Immigration Bill Would Spark Surge of Illegal Arrivals [Massive New Arrivals Depress US Citizen Wages!]April 14, 2013
And now for your next big crisis … It’s always about suppressing crime, yet why is it that crimes never go down?
Immigration Bill Would Spark Surge of Legal Arrivals The immigration debate often focuses on people in the U.S. illegally, but a reform bill’s biggest initial effect could be a sharp rise in legal immigration.
By Brian Bennett and Lisa Mascaro April 13, 2013 WASHINGTON — While much of the debate over immigration has focused on the fate of the estimated 11 million people in the U.S. without legal authorization, one of the biggest immediate impacts of the reform bill being prepared in the Senate would be a sudden, large surge in legal migration.
The U.S. admits about 1 million legal immigrants per year, more than any other country. That number could jump by more than 50% over the next decade under the terms of the immigration reform bill that a bipartisan group of senators expects to unveil as early as Tuesday. The impact would be felt nationwide, but areas that already have large immigrant communities would probably see much of the increase.
The immigration package includes at least four major provisions that would increase the number of legal immigrants, according to people familiar with it. Some of the parts could generate as much controversy as the provisions dealing with those who enter the country illegally or overstay their visas, according to those with long experience of the politics of immigration.
Supporters say that higher levels of legal immigration would meet the U.S. need for certain kinds of workers. Increased legal migration also would reduce most of the incentive for illegal border crossings, backers of the plan say, and would allow border agents to focus on smugglers and people with violent criminal records.

Why did the shooter commit suicide? When he knew the armed police were coming. Nothing else worked. Now think if a citizen in the school had a firearm. How many children could have been saved? And why did the shooter choose a gun free school? Because he knew …
AUSTIN — Two days after a knife-wielding attacker wounded more than a dozen people on a Texas college campus, a state House panel voted to allow concealed handgun license holders to carry weapons into college buildings and classrooms.
The House Homeland Security and Public Safety Committee pushed the bill up to the full House with a 7-1 vote without debate. Lawmakers had taken public testimony on the measure several weeks ago.

About that Obama Red Line???
Syrian state media accused rebels of firing a chemical weapon for the first time on Tuesday in the north of the country, killing at least 25 people in the war-torn Aleppo province. Rebels quickly denied the report and accused regime forces of firing a chemical weapon on a long-range missile.
Neither of the accusations could immediately be verified, and a chemical weapons expert in the U.K. told CBSNews.com there was very little evidence to suggest any actual chemical weapons had been deployed.
The Syrian state news agency SANA said “terrorists” had fired a rocket “containing chemical materials” into the area around the village of Khan al-Assal in the northern province of Aleppo. The regime regularly uses the term terrorists to refer to rebels fighting to overthrow authoritarian President Bashar Assad.

Stealing the people’s money plan floundering, but now everyone knows what the plan in. Socialism works until you run out of other people’s money to give away. Something, sadly Obama deosn’t have a clue about.
Will this bring down the new Cypriot government?
However, now as MarketNews reports, that is likely moot.
- CYPRUS PRESIDENT: PARLIAMENT BELIEVES BAILOUT PLAN UNJUST, GOVERNMENT MAKING OTHER PLANS.
- CYPRUS PRESIDENT: PARLIAMENT WILL REJECT BAILOUT PLAN –MNI
Amusingly enough, this echoes what Russia’s former FinMin Alexei Kudrin just said, who added fuel to the fire:
- KUDRIN SAYS CYPRIOT TAX WON’T PASS, GOVT COALITION IS CRUMBLING
If there is no consensus on the term of the bail-in, it is assured that there will be no vote today either, and possibly none tomorrow, and so on, which means that with both banks and stock markets closed through Friday, Cyprus may end up in permanent stasis indefinitely.
Alternatively, parliament may just vote, reject the bailout, tipping the country into bankruptcy, forcing it to exit the Eurozone, and finally pushing Europe beyond the Rubicon.
Cyprus’s parliament was set to reject a divisive tax on bank deposits in a vote scheduled for Tuesday, a government spokesman said, a move that would push the island closer to a default and banking collapse.
A weekend announcement that Cyprus would break with previous practice and impose a levy on bank accounts as part of a 10 billion euro ($13 billion) EU bailout prompted some turmoil on European financial markets on Monday.
Cypriot and euro zone officials have sought to soften the initially proposed levy of 6.75 percent on depositors of up to 100,000 euros and 9.9 percent above 100,000 to ease the burden on small savers.
But passage of the bill in the 56-member chamber, where no party has a majority, was unlikely and it was not clear if the vote would even go ahead later on Tuesday if leaders were sure it would be rejected.
“It looks like it won’t pass,” Cypriot government spokesman Christos Stylianides told state radio.
The House of Representatives was expected to meet at 1600 GMT (12:00 EST) . Rejection of the measure would effectively block a bailout that Cyprus needs to keep its banks afloat and government paying wages and welfare.
It’s quickly becoing a dead letter issue, as the banks now fear the haircut will spell their doom.
Isn’t this a violation of their depositer insurance?
But how do you put the car back in the bag. It’s just too late. And the other plans, means what exactly? Bankrupt is still bankrupt.
Run little kiddies run as fast as you can. Big Daady wants all his candy back. Just one of the problems with the big government State. every thing is fine until you run out of other people’s money … then they decide to take what you have, in their eyes, back.
And right now your country, Cyprus is out of money. So pay up.
Cyprus has delayed a vote on its controversial bank deposit levy until Tuesday. The new tax would make its citizens shoulder a 12.5-percent crisis tax on savings larger than €100,000, with a tax of 3 percent on smaller deposits.
The Cypriot government has been discussing the measure with its European creditors, Reuters reported citing an anonymous source who is close to talks.
To counterbalance the measure, the government proposed to increase the tax on large sums to 12.5 per cent from the originally proposed 9.9, the source said.
Statement by the President of the Republic of Cyprus, What The Government Imposed “Wealth Tax” MeansMarch 17, 2013
Why they are stealing the people of Cyprus’ money. My guess is they have officially run out of other people’s money to finance their SOCIALISM.
Small savers and low information voters hardest hit. Are you paying attention yet?
It is well known that the deep economic crisis and the state of emergency in which the country has found itself did not come about in the last fortnight since we have undertaken the administration of the country.
The state of emergency and critical nature of the times do not allow me, as they do not allow anyone, to embark on a blame game.
In the extraordinary meeting of the Eurogroup, we faced decisions that had already been taken and came across faits accomplis through which we were faced with the following dilemmas:
On Tuesday, March 19 we would either choose: the catastrophic scenario of disorderly bankruptcy or the scenario of a painful but controlled management of the crisis, which wouldput a definitive end to the uncertainty and restart our economy.
A possible choice of the catastrophic scenario option would have the following consequences:
- On Tuesday, March 19, immediately after the holiday weekend, one of the two banks in crisis would cease to operate, since the European Central Bank, following the decision already taken, would terminate the provision of liquidity. The second bank would suspend its work, and neither could avoid collapse. Such a phenomenon would instantly lead 8.000 families to unemployment.
- The State would be obliged to compensate depositors in response to the obligation regarding guaranteed deposits. The capital required in such a case would amount to about 30 billion euros, which the State would be unable to pay.
- A proportionate amount corresponding to the deposits of thousands of depositors fordeposits over 100.000 Euro, would be led to a vicious cycle of asset liquidation, and these depositors would suffer losses of over 60%.
- Such an uncontrolled situation would push the whole banking system into collapse with all the attendant consequences.
- Thousands of small and medium enterprises, and other businesses would be driven to bankruptcy due to their inability to trade.
Dictatorship’s are so much easier, especially when you have no Constitution…
And then for some that’s just a mere speed bump, to be ignored.
For those who read the previous article on the topic of last minute chaos and confusion in Cyprus, and Europe, it will come as no surprise that the previously scheduled Monday bank holiday (aka Green Monday) has been extended into Tuesday. So prepare to not be surprised.
The Cypriot cabinet has declared Tuesday a bank holiday, for fear of capital flight, and this may even be stretched to Wednesday, as depositors are certain to withdraw huge sums from the Cypriot banks after the haircut imposed.
Nicosia postponed from Sunday to Monday the tabling in Parliament of the bill including the measures for the Cypriot bailout – including a bank account haircut and a tax hike on interest and corporate earnings – but the European Central Bank insists on a rapid voting because there are already signs a domino effect will follow across European lenders and markets from Monday.
There is genuine fear of market unrest on Monday morning when stocks may crumble in the eurozone and bank accounts in other southern European bank may suffer.
Skai radio reported on Sunday that the Bank of Greece has sent between 4 and 5 billion euros to Cyprus in order to help Cypriot banks respond to cash requirements by their clients.
So, if the official name of the March 18 holiday was “Green Monday“, will the March 19th ad hoc holiday be called “Red Tuesday“? Inquiring minds want to know.
Government now moves into outright theft???
VIOLENT ARMED ROBBER SHOOTS WOULD-BE ‘VICTIM’ DURING HOLD UP — BUT IT WAS THE CRIMINAL WHO LEFT IN A BODY BAGMarch 7, 2013
On Tuesday night, an armed would-be robber approached a Miami man outside his apartment building and demanded his belongings.
Though it is not clear why, the robber then shot the victim in the hand. He didn’t know it at the time, but it would turn out to be a senseless violent act that cost him his life.
The victim, whose injury was said to be non-life threatening, then pulled out his own handgun in self-defense and shot his attacker several times. The violent robber later died at Miami’s Jackson Memorial Hospital due to his injuries.
The shooting happened around 7:30 p.m. Tuesday. When police arrived, they found two men had been wounded, one critically.
Police are investigating the initial shooting by the would-be robber. No charges have been filed against the victim.
No further details were immediately available.
You never know who you are robbing or jacking …
