Texas Group Backs Out Of Purchasing Resort Hotel For Illegals
The Obama administration awarded a $50 million contract to a charitable group to buy a Texas resort hotel and transform it in to a 600 bed facility for juvenile illegal aliens. Breaking news reports that the Texas group has since backed out of the deal due to public pressure and anger.
The Palm Aire Hotel and Suites was set to be sold to Baptist Child and Family Services (BCFS) operating under a federal contract, pending local government approval, according to reports from Weslaco, Texas where the hotel is located.
Weslaco is a few miles north of the Rio Grande in Hidalgo County. The resort hotel for illegal alien children was reportedly the "first in the nation". The plan was to have the hotel ready for illegal alien children ages 12 to 17 by October 1st of this year, a mere two-and-half months from now. It was expected the average stay would have been about fifteen days.
The Palm Aire Hotel and Suites has amenities such as two outdoor swimming pools—one Olympic sized—Jacuzzis, sauna, steam room, two racquetball courts, outdoor tennis courts, picnic area with grills and a fitness center with twenty machines and free weights.
A prime example of the Obama administration quietly at work, recklessly spending taxpayer dollars.
Attorney General Eric Holder and the Department of Justice are tackling the tough issues. No, not the IRS and Lois Lerner's missing emails, not the VA scandal, not Benghazi. Nope, he's investigating the July 4th weekend parade in Norfolk, Nebraska. Holder is involved because… well, racism of course.
You may ask, why? Well, is seems the parade had a blue flatbed truck carrying a zombie-looking mannequin in overalls on the door of an outhouse labeled "Obama Presidential Library" so the Justice Department sent a member of its Community Relations Service team to Norfolk to investigate.
The Justice Department bureaucrat attended a meeting on Thursday about the float fracas. Also in attendance at the meeting were representatives of the NAACP, the town mayor and members of The Independent Order of Odd Fellows, the group that organizes the yearly parade.
The man behind the controversial float, Dale Remmich, has explained that the overalls-clad mannequin in front of the outhouse represented himself — not Obama. The point he was trying to make concerned his frustration with Obama’s mismanagement of the Veterans Affairs Department.
With all of the scandals and general f*ck-ups of the Obama administration, the race card is the only card left to play. Sadly, Holder continues to stonewall the IRS investigation, yet gives the Nebraska float top priority.
Jimmy's Journal ran this joke during the Bush administration:
Fire Destroys Bush Presidential Library:
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A tragic fire on Monday destroyed the personal library of President George W. Bush. Both of his books have been lost. Presidential spokesman Ari Fleischer said the president was devastated, as he had not finished coloring the second one.
The joke was all over the news. Personally, it amused me. You could have inserted any president's name and it would have still been funny. The same is true of the outhouse float.
Yet, there was no uproar, no crying, no blaming or excuses over the Bush joke. It was a joke! Then again, how could Bush cast aspersions or blame? Well, I guess he had no cards to play.....

The AREA 51 Retirement Home Bar And Grill: Obama got out of the shower and was drying off when he looked In the mirror and noticed that he was white from the neck to the top of his head.
In a sheer panic and fearing he was turning white all over, he called his doctor and told him what had happened. The doctor advised him to come to his office immediately.
After an examination, the doctor mixed a concoction of brown liquid, gave it to Obama, and told him to drink it all. Obama drank the concoction and said,"That tasted like bullshit!" The doctor replied, "It was...you were a quart low."
A Mexican naval ship and American authorities off the coast of San Diego exchanged radio conversations one night. The Americans radioed, "Please divert your course 15 degrees South to avoid a collision."
The Mexicans radioed back, "Recommend you divert your course 15 degrees North to avoid a collision." The Americans responded, " Negative. You will have to divert your course 15 degrees to the South to avoid a collision."
The Mexicans immediately said, "This is the Captain Gomez of the Mexican Navy warship. I say again, divert your course." The Americans responded, "No. I say again, you divert your course."
The Mexican ship said, "This is the Mexican warship "Pancho Villa", the second largest ship in our fleet. We are accompanied by three support war vessels. I demand that you change your course 15 degrees north or counter-measures will be undertaken to ensure the safety of this ship."
The Americans responded, "This is a lighthouse.....your call, Jose!"
The Hits Just Keep On Coming: Murray goes to see the Rabbi and says, "Rabbi, something terrible is happening and I have to talk to you about it." The Rabbi asks, "What's wrong?" Murray replies, "My wife is poisoning me."
The Rabbi, very surprised by this, asks, "How can that be?" Murray then pleads, "I'm telling you, I'm certain she's poisoning me, what should I do?" The Rabbi then offers, "Tell you what. Let me talk to her, I'll see what I can find out and I'll let you know."
A week later the Rabbi calls the man and says, "Well, I spoke to your wife. I spoke to her on the phone for three hours. You want my advice?" Murray says, "Yes!" The Rabbi says, "Take the poison."
A World War II pilot is reminiscing before school children about his flying days during the war. He says, "In 1944, the situation was really tough. The Germans had a very strong air force."
The old pilot continued, "I remember, one day I was protecting the bombers and suddenly, out of the clouds, these two fokkers appeared. I looked up, and right above me was one of them and I shot him down. They were swarming. I immediately realized that there was another fokker behind me."
At this moment, the girls in the auditorium start to giggle and boys start to laugh. The teacher stands up and says, "I think I should point out that 'Fokker' was the name of the German-Dutch aircraft company." The pilot says, "That's true, but these fokkers were flying Messerschmidts."
That's it for today, my little tater tots. Remember, there's no fool like an old fool, but the young ones are coming right along. I'll meet you in AREA 51 for happy hour.
