The Best of Uncle Arthur – Bewitched

“The magic is as wide as a smile and as narrow as a wink, loud as laughter and quiet as a tear, tall as a tale and deep as emotion. So strong, it can lift the spirit. So gentle, it can touch the heart. It is the magic that begins the happily ever after.” – Unknown

“The man that hath no music in himself, Nor is not moved with concord of sweet sounds, is fit for treasons, stratagems and spoils.” William Shakespeare


Obama Invited to Meet Coal Miners Losing Their Jobs Because of EPA Regulations

“I’ve got an invitation here. This is a letter I sent to the president of the United States,” Kelly said on Wednesday at a press conference outside of the Capitol. “And this is an invitation for him to come to the coal nation.

As the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) holds public meetings this week on its latest round of proposed regulations to limit greenhouse gas emissions from the nation’s fossil-fuel-fired power plants, Rep. Mike Kelly (R-Pa.) said President Barack Obama should trade a trip to the golf course for a visit with coal miners across America who are losing their jobs.

“I’ve got an invitation here. This is a letter I sent to the president of the United States,” Kelly said on Wednesday at a press conference outside of the Capitol. “And this is an invitation for him to come to the coal nation.

“I want him to get off of the back nine and come into the mines,” Kelly said. “I want to get his golf cap off and get his hard hat on.”

On June 2, the EPA announced its Clean Power Plan “to cut carbon pollution from existing power plants.”

Sheriff: Over 120,000 Illegals Arrested in One Sector (Audio)

Pinal County, AZ Sheriff Paul Babeu announced that over 120,000 illegal immigrants have been arrested in just the Tucson sector of the southern border. “We have [had] 123,000 illegals arrested right here in the Tucson sector” Babeu said on Wednesday’s “Sean Hannity Show.” He added that eight “cartel scouts” arrested in the last month. “close to 60,000, what’s predicted to be 90,000 by October 1 of unaccompanied juveniles” are expected cross the border in just the Del Rio Sector of Texas.

Babeu also criticized the Obama administration’s lack of interest in securing the border, stating that Hannity has “done more on this issue…than, not just Jeh Johnson, than the president and every member of his cabinet combined.”

He concluded that unless the illegal immigrants crossing the border are deported, the additional funding that the president has requested to secure the border would go to waste, and “you might as well throw it out the window.”

Illegal Alien Crime Victims Invite Boehner, His Family to Border, Plead for Enforcement (Video)

Several family members of victims of horrific crimes committed by illegal aliens have invited House Speaker John Boehner to visit the U.S. Border with Mexico with them in a fiery letter provided exclusively to Breitbart News.

“As you leave Washington, D.C. to vacation with your families, our families invite you and your entire family to spend the weekend in McAllen, Texas,” the victims’ family members wrote to Boehner and other lawmakers Wednesday. “We invite you to see firsthand the invasion and lawlessness that is destroying our beloved country, and how you (and others) have given de facto permission and unfettered access to the perpetrators who have killed our loved ones, leaving our families in complete grief and disbelief as to ‘how’ this horrific tragedy was allowed! What about our children, Mr. Boehner? Where is the out-cry for OUR children and American families?”

Signers of the letter include three family members of Border Patrol agent Brian Terry, who was killed by Mexican drug cartel operatives in late 2010. The cartel members were using weapons that were part of Operation Fast and Furious, which has since burgeoned into a congressional investigation into gun-walking and a scandal in which President Barack Obama has asserted executive privilege to hide documents from Congress. Terry’s family members who signed this letter include his mother Josephine, brother Kent, and sister Kelly.

Heritage Action Issues New Call to Arms

“The only way to win an argument is to have one,” the Heritage Action document reads. “And while many people think Washington, D.C., is broken, the truth is that it’s broken only for the American people. For the wealthy and the powerful, Washington is a finely tuned machine aimed at avoiding principled arguments and keeping the gravy train rolling for well-connected interests.”

Heritage Action, the political arm of the conservative Heritage Foundation, spent last year’s August recess banging the drum for Congress to defund the 2010 health law, barnstorming the country to fuel conservatives’ discontent with GOP leaders in Washington. The resulting standoff briefly shuttered the government.

This year, the group is issuing a broader call-to-arms, challenging conservatives to renew their commitment to an agenda that champions a more-robust foreign policy and elevates marriage and religious liberty, as well as the same free-market economic populism that characterized its earlier initiatives.

A memo to be released Thursday and distributed to members of Congress before they leave town for the five-week August recess, serves as a wake-up call to conservatives that voters still need to hear a positive governing agenda from the GOP before they will be willing to elect a new Republican majority.

Intellectual Froglegs: As the World Burns (Video)

Do you realize we are just three months away from quite possibly the last electoral chance to save this country? Anyway, November will be here before we know it. I hope everyone is getting involved somehow to prevent the stealing of another election this fall. We cannot afford these people in office any longer. And if there is no place to volunteer, maybe YOU should help start something.

Rehan “Ray” Zuberi, 45, of Boonton Township, the owner of Diagnostic Imaging Affiliates (DIA) of Hackensack and the alleged leader of the criminal enterprise was arrested Tuesday (June 17). Zuberi’s bail was set at $1 million by Superior Court Judge Stuart A. Minkowitz in Morris County.

Acting Attorney General John J.

The enterprise allegedly generated millions of dollars in illegal profits. Twelve others were also charged in the alleged scheme.
