» VIDEO: Rick Perry Calls Out Obama In Committee Hearing: ‘Secure This Border, Mr. President’

Lead Story by TPNN Staff, Tea Party News Network —
As a surge of unaccompanied children stream across the border, Democrats and many Republicans have been quick to call it a “humanitarian crisis.” While pro-amnesty lawmakers crusade to offer some sort of amnesty for the tens-of-thousands of children who were sent here in violation of our laws, many conservatives have been quick to note that while the plight of these children is unfortunate, America is under no obligation to welcome illegal immigration.

Over 52,000 unaccompanied children have been apprehended after crossing the border into the U.S. illegally, with nearly two-thirds of them coming through the Rio Grande Valley in Texas.

On Thursday, Texas Governor and likely 2016 presidential candidate Rick Perry testified before a congressional field hearing in South Texas.

Gov. Perry has joined many other conservatives in his criticism of the Obama Administration’s handling of immigration issues, accusing them of welcoming illegal immigration which send a clear message that those coming here illegally will be allowed to stay, which encourages the illegal immigration further.
“The real issue, from my perspective, is this message that has come out of this administration for too many years that, ‘Come on up and cross the border and you can become a United States citizen,’ Perry recently claimed in an interview.
On Thursday, Perry addressed the field committee and stated,
“The border between the U.S. and Mexico is less secure than at any time in the recent past… My message to President Obama is: Secure this border, Mr. President. Finally address this issue and secure this border.”
“We have a Constitution that clearly enumerates the powers that are supposed to be dealt with by the federal government. Defending and securing this country’s borders is one of those and we’re failing.”
Perry’s comments come after the President announced that he would tackle immigration reform on his own, though he possesses no constitutional authority to do so. » Full Article & Video...

The American Dream —
Today the United States celebrates Independence Day once again. But who in the world are we trying to kid? Our founders intended to create a society where freedom and liberty would be maximized, but that is not what America looks like today. Instead, we live in a country that literally has millions of laws, rules and regulations. We have a government that is obsessed with spying on the entire planet and that tries to watch, monitor, track and record as much...

» Obama Civilian Security Force Takes Control Of Immigrant Internment Camps: “Abide By Brown Shirts Law” —
In the run up to the 2008 Presidential election Barack Obama promised he would work to implement a domestic security force which would rival that of the U.S. military.

» Use Or Look At Online Privacy Tools? NSA Labels You An ‘Extremist’
The Daily Beast —
People with any interest in hiding their identity online are automatically labeled for closer inspection by Big Brother. Online privacy tools like Tor have become incredibly popular in the wake of Edward Snowden’s surveillance revelations. But according to an analysis of leaked source code from the National Security Agency, using or merely searching for information about those tools is enough to label someone an “extremist” in the eyes of the NSA...

» Gov: All Your Money (So Far) Belongs to Us
Truth Revolt — Happy Independence Day!
According to Americans for Tax Reform, it takes the average American worker 186 days to fully pay off the costs of government before one cent goes into the worker's own pockets.

Cost of Government Day falls on July 6. That means it will take until the end of this weekend to pay off all government spending and regulations. This marks the sixth year in a row that COGD fell in July. Before President Obama took office, it had never fallen past late June, according to ATR.

Currently, workers are "trading in" 121 days on the clock to simply pay off government spending. It takes another 65 days to pay for regulatory costs, totaling 186 days. As ATR points out, it is worse in states like New Jersey and Connecticut, where the COGD falls at the end of July.

So this 4th of July weekend, remember, the money that you have made so far this year belongs to the government. Enjoy that hotdog!
