http://twitter.com/#!/DarrellIssa/status/507634967111692288

Nearly everyone, from everyday citizens to politicians to celebrities, has been calling on President Obama to present a plan on dealing with ISIS. Add House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chair Darrell Issa to that list. Rep. Issa on Monday will introduce a joint resolution to require President Obama to present to Congress a strategic plan to defeat ISIS.

That's all I know. The police have the street cordoned off and aren't even letting residents in..

Politico: Does Obama have a Harry Reid problem? Stacey Dash’s reply slays

Snicker. That was in reply to this Politico tweet:

Actress Stacey Dash replied to the absurdity as well. Her answer to Politico’s question slayed:

Bada-zing!

http://twitter.com/#!/sfischer1967/status/431235714974769152

Yep.

As Twitchy reported, Dash also shared some inspirational photos from the Gary Sinise Foundation’s Hollywood Salutes Heroes event.

Patriotic, smart and funny? Triple win.

Immigration protesters take over Harry Reid’s office

http://twitter.com/#!/dianaqbui/status/509410795588157440

Sen. Harry Reid tweeted today that when the president takes action on immigration, “I hope he goes Real Big.” He’s probably hoping the president acts really quickly as well, as a group of protesters from the group United We Dream have settled in to Reid’s office, unhappy with his inaction on amnesty.

http://twitter.com/#!/UNITEDWEDREAM/status/509411413635633152

A real leader? We think you’re at the wrong office.

http://twitter.com/#!/UNITEDWEDREAM/status/509420750458322944

The protesters say they’re refusing to move until Reid demands the president act now on immigration. How long will that be? Last summer, another group called the Dream Defenders settled into Florida Gov. Rick Scott’s office for a full month to protest the state’s “Stand Your Ground” law.

http://twitter.com/#!/UNITEDWEDREAM/status/509421228592230400

Sen. Ted Cruz managed to deal with United We Dream pretty quickly.

Disappointed with President Obama? Welcome to the club.

‘HILLARIOUS’: Mrs. Clinton has jokes for ‘The View’

http://twitter.com/#!/theviewtv/status/467320529699864576

Hillary, stop! Our sides!

She’s a crooked Arkansas lawyer who rode her husband’s coattails to political power as a carpetbagging senator from New York then was exiled from the country appointed Secretary of State by Barack Obama. Plus, she’s got JOKES!

Maybe she could use “running around the park with the dogs” as her answer when someone asks her where she was while Americans were dying in Benghazi.

‘Infuriating’: BuzzFeed editor pissed that Bush ‘gets to sit this sh*t’ in Iraq out

http://twitter.com/#!/SonnyBunch/status/477455245472464896

BuzzFeed foreign editor Miriam Elder, for one, is pretty upset over what’s happening in Iraq. And this morning, she took a swipe at the president for doing nothing about the growing crisis — President Bush, that is:

http://twitter.com/#!/MiriamElder/status/477451323487825920

Because of course.

Heh.

http://twitter.com/#!/Zaggs/status/477455690374451200

What’s the matter, Miriam? Don’t you have any faith in The One?

For heaven’s sake, honey. He won the Nobel Peace Prize!

‘President Cruz’? Harry Reid’s poke at GOP on immigration sparks 2016 buzz

http://twitter.com/#!/BecketAdams/status/469517560674025472

Yeah, that’s our reaction to pretty much everything Harry Reid says. The crazypants senator took a break from rambling incoherently about the Kochs to share some thoughts on immigration:

http://twitter.com/#!/SenatorReid/status/469510305412694017

He elaborated:

http://twitter.com/#!/SenatorReid/status/469517215059177472

Beg your pardon, Senator?

http://twitter.com/#!/BecketAdams/status/469517710851067904

It’s pretty clear that Reid was just trying to poke Republicans with his old-coot stick, but, well, he also got some people to thinking:

Rep. Bridenstine: I was denied access to facility housing young illegals

http://twitter.com/#!/AnthrVoiceinWil/status/484353161214570497

Oklahoma Republican Rep. Jim Bridenstine attempted to visit a facility housing young people who crossed the border illegally, but he apparently didn’t have much luck:

http://twitter.com/#!/RepJBridenstine/status/484352531716661248

From Rep. Bridenstine’s press release:

Congressman Jim Bridenstine (OK) was denied access yesterday to the HHS facility at Ft. Sill, Oklahoma currently housing up to 1,200 unaccompanied alien children (UAC) who illegally crossed the southern border into the United States.

Congressman Bridenstine said, “There is no excuse for denying a Federal Representative from Oklahoma access to a federal facility in Oklahoma where unaccompanied children are being held. Any Member of Congress should have the legal authority to visit a federal youth detention facility without waiting three weeks.”

Experience the unprecedented levels of transparency!

OFA’s Lis Smith: Mitt Romney should ‘never talk about foreign policy again’

http://twitter.com/#!/lis_Smith/status/437660933163208704

Yes, that’s the former director of rapid response for Barack Obama’s campaign machine, advising Mitt Romney to never talk about foreign policy again. That tweet was from Sunday, though, before Russian troops began their “uncontested arrival” in the Crimean region of Ukraine — exactly as Romney had warned during the presidential debates.
