    REPORTED  THURSDAY, AUGUST 07, 2014

    Eric Odom is on site in McAllen, Texas, a border town at the epicenter of the Obama Invasion. Eric spoke to me from the McAllen bus terminal where illegals by the thousands have been dropped off and mainstreamed into American society.

    Eric said the station was full of illegals — mostly women, some with children — who were getting bus tickets out of south Texas and into America’s heartland. “Another bus in coming right now,” Eric told me.

    And another.

    And another.

    Our contacts tell us that over the past two weeks there has been a dramatic increase in the number of illegals coming over and being fast-tracked into American society.

    ———————————————————————————————

    The immigration Crisis?  What Crisis? The disaster? What immigration disaster?

    ONLY 57,000   illegal Alien immigrants HAVE ALREADY BEEN fast-tracked into American society.

    PLUS… STILL GOING….MORE BUSES, AND MORE BUSES FULL OF Illegal Alien immigrants, up to 91% teenagers? or adults? Un-screened? Gang members? Unhealthy, Disease carrying? BUSSED into our public schools and communities?

    NOW OVER  57,000 Illegal Aliens?  Not just crossing our borders, but,ARE  being welcomed with open arms by OBAMA’S  LIBERAL members of congress AND BUSSED INTO AMERICA’S HEARTLAND.

    The immigration Crisis?  What Crisis? The disaster? What immigration disaster?

    As American citizens We must fight  to protect the United States of America from these  Government agency’s endorsed willful concealment’s?

    Of an alien invasion on our borders?  of an alien ASSAULT-AMBUSH on our country?

    Placing gag orders? Kept secret from the freedom of the press and from “We the People”  and even refusing  a congressman’s access to a military facility in his own district.

    AMBUSH? by definition: concealed before the A surprise attack, an unexpected attack from a concealed position one or more people concealed in order to make a surprise attack, a place of concealment before the attack

     From this illegal alien onslaught.

    ONSLAUGHT? by definition: Overwhelming assault or force a powerful attack or force that overwhelms somebody or something,  a very large quantity of people or things that is difficult to deal with

    Dear Pearl Rains,

    Thank you for taking the time to share “The Art of War” with me. It is good to hear from you.

    As you may know, I spent about eleven hours each week on an airplane, so I’m always looking for good reading material. What’s more, hearing the views of folks in our region is important to my work. I will keep your thoughts in mind as Congress debates these issues in the future and have forwarded this article to my staff.

    I appreciate you taking the time to share this article with me. I encourage you to continue to reach out if I can ever lend a hand.

    Sincerely,

    Derek Kilmer

    INDEED, THE AUDACITY OF REPRESENTATIVE DEREK KILMER

    Derek does not consider the word PATRIOT to be threatening.
    By definition, a proud supporter or defender of his or her country and its way of life

    Because as a representative of ALL AMERICAN CITIZENS in his district, he receives, reads and responds to ALL emails from ALL of his constituents.
    He does not allow the partisan ISLE to separate him from his COMMITMENT

    HE DOES NOT SELECTIVELY READ, ACT and RESPOND.
    HE TREATS ALL AMERICAN CITIZENS EQUALLY AND
    HE DOES NOT EXCLUDE or DISCRIMINATE AGAINST AMERICAN CITIZENS BECAUSE OF THEIR POLITICAL PERSUASION.
    (like in the IRS scandal)

    FULL MEDIA Report: Murray points to Kilmer on supervision of alleged embezzler
    Published: September 20, 2013
    By JORDAN SCHRADER — Staff writer
    Last winter, state Senate Democrats and their leader, Ed Murray, accused their campaign director of embezzlement.
    Seattle police investigators on Thursday sent their report on the case to King County Prosecuting Attorney Dan Satterberg’s office, which says it expects to decide on any charges against Michael King within several weeks.
    Now the frontrunner for Seattle mayor, Murray is answering questions about his former role as
    co-chairman of the Senate campaign operation — and according to news website Publicola, Murray is pointing his finger at a Pierce County congressman.
    Publicola’s Josh Feit quoted Murray last week as saying:
    “I didn’t have supervisory responsibility for the guy [King],” Murray tells me. “First of all, I didn’t hire him, I did not supervise him, the activity went on for two years. The person you should be calling is [now U.S.-Rep.] Derek Kilmer. Derek Kilmer is the person who supervised him for two years. Derek Kilmer hired him. We can clearly see the first signs of this happening within the first week he was hired.”
    Kilmer’s spokesman Stephen Carter told Publicola that Kilmer checked King’s references and that it’s “not fair to blame anyone except Michael King.”
    Murray — who said he’s “not trying to dump on Derek” — told Feit that he inherited King and the campaign committee’s procedures from his three predecessors as co-chairs of the committee.
    “Under Derek [Kilmer], Scott White and Lisa [Brown], someone gave this guy [King] check-writing authority,” Murray said.
    I asked Carter whether Kilmer had changed the director’s authority, and he said no.
    “No changes to rules or procedures were made by Derek during his time at the SDCC,” Carter said.

    Thank you for contacting me with your concerns about the tragedy in Benghazi. I appreciate you taking the time to write and share your thoughts with me.

    On September 11, 2012, a terrorist attack on a U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya killed Ambassador Christopher Stevens, and three other U.S. personnel. Sadly, Ambassador Stevens is the sixth U.S. Ambassador to have died in the line of duty, and the first since 1979.

    In December 2012, the State Department’s Accountability Review Board released an unclassified report on the Benghazi attack. The Board found that there were significant security shortfalls at the special mission in Benghazi and that the attack was “unanticipated” in “scale and intensity.” It found that the attacks were not instigated by any kind of protest. The Review Board did find “systemic failures and leadership and management deficiencies at senior levels.” Ultimately, the report put forward 29 recommendations and the State Department has pledged to fully implement all of them. The Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Government Affairs put out its own report later that month.

    Significant controversy has surrounded the terrorist attack in Benghazi and whether the Obama Administration took the necessary security precautions for the diplomatic mission in Benghazi, what actions it could have taken to provide military support for the Americans who were under siege, and how it communicated the nature of the attack to the American people.

    As the State Department says, our Foreign Service Officers are America’s first line of defense. Every day, the thousands of men and women of our Foreign Service ensure America is a force for peace, progress, and democracy, and we must do all that we can to protect them. Clearly, we must determine exactly what happened during that tragic night, and be certain that our government responded to the attacks appropriately, given what it knew at the time. If the facts show that anything damaging was covered up or unflattering reports were suppressed, then those responsible should be held accountable.

    Since the attacks, Congress included a provision in the FY 2013 National Defense Authorization Act to increase the number of Marines serving at our diplomatic facilities around the world. Recently, Congress passed legislation to fund the government that also included an additional $2 billion for embassy security.

    Rep. Frank Wolf (Va.) introduced H.Res. 36 on January 18, 2013. This legislation would establish a select committee to investigate and report on the attack on the consulate in Benghazi. This committee would gather all known intelligence on the attack, establish a timeline of events, assess the security procedures in place at the time, as well as the how the event was handled, and issue a report on what steps Congress and the Executive branch can take to prevent similar incidents in the future. While I continue to review this legislation, I believe strongly that Congress must play an active oversight role to ensure that our nation’s embassies are secure and that information that is shared about such tragedies is transparent and accurate.

    I will be sure to keep your thoughts in mind as Congress considers this issue in the future. I encourage you to continue to share your views with me on this topic or any other issue. Thank you for reaching out. It is an honor to serve as your representative.

    Sincerely,

    Derek Kilmer
    Member of Congress

  • Kilmer on Federal Budget

    Derek Kilmer Responds on Federal Budget

    Dear Pearl Rains,

    Thank you for contacting me about the federal budget. I appreciate you taking the time to share your views with me.

    Balancing the budget and dealing with our nation’s debt shouldn’t be partisan issues – they’re vital to our long-term success. What’s more, while our nation clearly needs to address its long-term fiscal sustainability, it must be committed to doing so in a way that maintains our values.

    It’s no secret we’re in a financial mess right now. For too many years, Congress failed to make tough choices to balance the budget and get our nation’s finances under control. Kicking the can down the road combined with two major wars and a financial crisis led us to our current tough situation – out-of-control debt and a budget where spending is way out of whack with revenues. It’s time for some fiscal responsibility.

    Responsibility takes balance.The problem we face is too large to rely on only cutting or taxing our way out of it. We need to prioritize what the government does because government can’t do everything. There will be – and should be – strategic spending reductions. We need to contain health care spending, bring our troops home, eliminate unproductive tax breaks, and look for opportunities to make our government more efficient and effective.

    But we must also honor our obligation to seniors, middle-income families, and those who are vulnerable to ensure that they are able to live with dignity.We can’t balance our budget by throwing folks overboard. That’s not the American way.

    We’ll have to make some difficult decisions but I know we can do this. In the State Senate, I was Vice-Chair of the Ways and Means Committee and wrote the capital budget. We were able to pass balanced budgets with strong bipartisan support. If we could make tough choices and balance our budget in Olympia then Congress can do it too.

    In fact, I voted for a bill that says members of Congress shouldn’t get paid unless Congress passes a budget. There’s too much partisan bickering, not enough progress. We need to get folks back to work; we need to get Congress working again too.

    Going forward, it’s clear that we need a bipartisan effort to develop a balanced solution to our long-term fiscal challenges. And, importantly, we need a strategic effort to get people back to work and push for ways to grow our economy.There will be some difficult choices coming up and I look forward to representing our region in the conversation.

    I encourage you to continue to share your views with me on this topic or any other issue. Thank you for reaching out. It is an honor to serve as your Congressman. I always enjoy hearing from the people I represent.

    Sincerely,

    Derek Kilmer
    Member of Congress
