Oceanside’s Ares Armor has stirred up controversy–and caught the eye of the Secret Service–with an AR-15 part called “Obama’s Blaster.”

“Obama’s Blaster” is not a gun, but an upper receiver–a part for an AR-15 that has to be coupled with a lower receiver in order to make a functioning firearm.

The San Diego Union-Tribune reports that Ares Armor’s owner, Dimitrios Karras, said his company is “pretty creative with [its] names” and “Obama’s Blaster” is “obviously a joke.” He said it’s meant to be “funny,” not to suggest action against any political figure.

On the Ares Armor website, “Obama’s Blaster” is not marketed as an offensive piece of weaponry but as a commemorative part honoring what Ares Armor describes as President Obama’s role as the most “distinguished firearms spokesman and salesman of all time.” But Secret Service spokesman Brian Leary said the existence of…

WASHINGTON — President Obama will delay taking executive action on immigration until after the midterm elections, bowing to pressure from fellow Democrats who feared that acting now could doom his party’s chances this fall, White House officials said on Saturday.

The decision is a reversal of Mr. Obama’s vow to issue broad directives to overhaul the immigration system soon after summer’s end, and sparked swift anger from immigration advocates. The president made the promise on June 30, in the Rose Garden, where he angrily denounced Republican obstruction and said he would use the power of his office to protect immigrant families from the threat of deportation.

Suffolk changes policy on undocumented immigrant detentions in jails
The Nassau and Suffolk Sheriffs departments say they will no longer hold immigrants after their release dates unless federal immigration officials present a warrant. (9/18/14)

WOODBURY - There is a change in policy for undocumented immigrants in Long Island jails.

Suffolk County Sheriff Vincent DeMarco has instructed members of his department not to detain immigrant inmates solely because federal customs agents are asking them to. Now, the sheriff's office will only hold inmates if it receives a written warrant from the federal officials.

The previous policy had been in place since 2011, but County Executive Steve Bellone says the change will save taxpayers money.

Democratic Congressman Tim Bishop representing CD-1 on Long Island told a concerned audience at a LIMBA meeting Friday of last week that of the approximately 100 Americans who went to fight with ISIS, 40 have returned.

DHS, the State Department, Jeh Johnson, John Kerry and other key government officials are completely unaware that these terrorists have returned if one can judge by their comments made before Congress on Thursday.

Mr. Bishop is currently being accused of exaggerating the number or exposing secrets. He would not “come to the phone and explain where he got it” when a Newsday reporter called him.

When Rep. Peter King was asked about it, he said he…

In an exclusive interview, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) said Thursday will go do as a “dark day” in Senate history, with Senate Democrats blocking GOP legislation addressing the Islamic State (ISIS) and President Obama’s threat of executive amnesty.

“Unfortunately the Senate Democrats have become an extreme party,” Cruz said in an interview backstage at the Liberty Political Action Conference (LPAC) in Alexandria, Virginia. “They have become a party that has abdicated their responsibilities. Under Harry Reid and the Senate Democrats, we have a do-nothing Senate. There are over 350 bills the House of Representatives has passed and they’re all sitting on Harry Reid’s desk. He will not allow a vote on them.”

The interview with Cruz aired on Breitbart News Saturday on Sirius XM Patriot.

College Student Forced To Remove American Flag From Balcony Because ‘Foreign People Could Find It Offensive’

Socialism is not the Answer

Flag-Balcony-ABC10

Weasel Zippers

Via Breitbart:

A San Diego State University sophomore was forced to remove an American flag from his balcony after apartment managers said foreigners could find the display offensive.

Brad Smith, who had just moved into the Boulevard 63 apartment complex in San Diego last month, told ABC 10 News that he received a written notice to remove the flag a few days ago.

“We were then told that it was for political reasons and that the flag could offend foreign people that live here, foreign exchange students,” Smith said. “I’ve had friends and family fight to defend that flag.”

While Smith’s lease agreement with the apartment’s management does have a clause that says “no signs or other personal property may be kept outside the premises,” attorney Christian Curry told ABC. that the clause comes close to infringing on First Amendment rights.

“Clearly, they want to keep it clean…

A problem Obama desperately wants you to forget about

Socialism is not the Answer

American Thinker

President Obama is betting on the short attention span of the American public and a compliant media in hopes that the problem of Bowe Bergdahl will just fade away.  Obama infamously traded five senior leaders of the Taliban in exchange for Bergdahl’s sorry butt released from captivity.

Justice delayed may be justice denied, but Obama is no doubt keen to have delay after delay prevent a reckoning for the deserter Bergdahl. Paul Sperry, writing in the New York Post lets us know the tactics being deployed to keep a trial for Bergdahl from happening, or at least delay it until after November.

Three and a half months have come and gone and the Pentagon has offered no clarity on what happened to alleged Army deserter and Taliban collaborator Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl. Fellow soldiers and other critics fear the military’s now-delayed investigation is shaping up to be a whitewash…
