As Ed pointed out yesterday, Sen. Rubio is hatching a plan to ‘charge up the middle’ on illegal immigration — and it might not be a moment too soon. The White House has already indicated that they are planning to go full-throttle on prioritizing the immigration issue in a second term, and it looks like those plan are already starting to take a more definite shape in the form of a comprehensive legislative package that critics will undoubtedly say looks an awful lot like amnesty, reports the NYT: President Obama plans to push Congress to move quickly
Comments: So now the number is "11 million"? For years, it´s been 12 million and most of us believe the number is 25-30 million. Truth is, no one knows.
This will turn many of our cities into Leicester, Luton and Slough. Please see this Telegraph article:
"White Britons a minority in Leicester, Luton and Slough"
Those who call London Londonistan might want to create US city names: Detroitstan, New Yorkstan, Miamixico, Los Angelexico, Phoenixico, and so on.
Once opened such gates are almost impossible to close. The Labour party did it in Britain and the Democrats are doing it here. The Administration knows what will happen, just as surely as they know what will happen with "affordable" health care. So many new voters, they´ll be decimating forests for the material to make new voter registration cards--and make space for cheap housing. Obama doesn´t care, he´ll be living in a palatial villa in Hawaii with lifetime security. We´ll be here figuring out how to make trip wires out of empty soft drink cans and what exactly goes into the most effective Molotov cocktails, ´cause we won´t have our guns to protect us any more. I think I´ll buy archery equipment before that gets banned too. After all I was born in Robin Hood country.
Let´s make another new name--USIP for our own UKIP.
It doesn´t matter how disastrous Obama´s policies are as long as he can import millions of voters to keep his free spending party in power.I´ve always wondered how blacks,making up 13% of the population could swing so many elections and the left figured that out also,so they had to manufacture a new voting base.This really all started back in 1965 when Ted Kennedy pushed for amnesty,saying this country was too white.
The left has also done a masterful job co-opting young whites through the indoctrinating school system.Then they come up with a health plan which should be,by law a color and gender blind program.Low and behold they use it to buy the young female vote with free birth control which isn´t even working if you look at the ever mounting abortions.Birth control actually enhances the spread of STDs also.
It´s Ok for some school to have a costume day honoring the most repugnant people in this country´s history but fire a teacher who might have historical values leaning quotes in the classroom.
Obama should actually be impeached for not upholding his constitutional oath on securing the border. Local cops can´t call ICE when they have an illegal detainee. There´s a million people who have already been deported but refuse to leave and Obama sure as hell isn´t giving them bus or plane tickets.
They stopped workplace raids a long time ago over the sob story of family separation.
We take in 1,000,000 new legal immigrants a year. About 30% are from Mexico and Latin America. Any illegals permitted to seek citizenship without getting on the end of the line, should reduce that amount. Only that amount should be able to reach citizenship. That way we continue to control immigration while continuing to be the most generous country in the world permitting legal immigration.
Good one, #4. And I´ve just posted a good piece about what the EU diktat (effective January 2014) on opening up immigration for those in Romania and Bulgaria will do to the already overloaded dike in the UK--where no more fingers are available.
Oh, dear, that should be #2. I´m just so angry about Obama´s immigration plans, I literally cannot see straight. All those hoops I jumped, all those years denied college tuition and other bennies, all that money. But I thought it was worth it--and still do. However, when you outright give someone something for nothing, the character of the recipient is not even close to what we would like it to be.
I´m going to look for an Awww! piece now. I need it.
When a former hard-hitting news anchor’s daytime talk show suffers dangerously slipping ratings, what’s the next step? If it’s Katie Couric, the answer is to trade a history of responsible reporting for irresponsible scaremongering. In her segment last week on the HPV vaccine, Couric delivered a blow to both public health and her image. The question now is what Couric – if she’s willing – can do to repair the damage. It’s a sad turn of events for Couric, once known for drawing attention to public health issues such as colon cancer, which killed her husband. The former CBS anchor, soon
If a five-part opus in The New York Times by Andrea Elliott is to believed, we live in a hard-hearted city. But if you read closely, it suggests just the opposite. Begin with the family at the center of this story. The mother, father and eight kids aren’t really homeless at all. True, they live in housing meant for “homeless families.” But their 540-square-foot unit gives them a solid roof over their heads, in addition to city-provided meals and services. One city official tells us Elliott and the Times ignored many key facts about the family and that its situation is “atypical.” “New
President Barack Obama is flying to South Africa Monday morning to join the emotional extravaganza around the graveside of former president Nelson Mandela, leaving Vice President Joe Biden on his lonesome to attend meetings in the empty White House. The president will board U.S. Air Force One to jet around the world to Johannesburg, the capital of South Africa, while Joe stays behind to keep the lights on at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. Obama is flying away from supposedly high-priority negotiations to prevent another budget shutdown of Uncle Sam’s federal government, and also from the top-priority effort to rebuild his crashed Obamacare program. He’s
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has been in the news fairly often of late, and not just in his home state. The Democrat has been the frequent subject of some admittedly long-shot speculation over a 2016 presidential run if Hillary passes on the ticket. (Personally, I would find a Cuomo candidacy hilarious, not to mention good news for the GOP, when he tried to explain to the rest of the nation how he signed the NY Safe Act, one of the most restrictive and odious gun control laws in the nation.) When he was elected Governor of New York, he
In the late 1930s, as humans managed to launch yet another war that would fail to end all wars, H.G. Wells wrote a series of essays laying out a plan for a better world. Wells, a novelist, reformer and sometime historian, believed that technology could connect people in ways that had never before been possible, joining them in a network and uniting their wisdom into a kind of synaptic and singular mind. The structure Wells imagined would be, he declared, “a sort of mental clearinghouse for the mind, a depot where knowledge and ideas are received, sorted, summarized, digested, clarified,
The story of a special Allied unit dubbed the "Monuments Men" has inspired a Hollywood film set to premier early next year. But who were these men who saved countless European cultural treasures from being lost or destroyed by Nazi forces? It was May 17, 1945, not long after Nazi forces had surrendered, ending Word War II in Europe, when miners dug through the wall of rubble with picks and shovels in Altaussee, Austria. There was a 12-meter thick layer of debris blocking the entrance to the salt mine, and though no one knew what was inside, they all hoped they
SAN DIEGO -- Bob Filner has almost vanished from public view since a defiant resignation speech as San Diego mayor amid widespread allegations that he sexually harassed women. He returns to the spotlight at least once more. The former 10-term congressman will be sentenced Monday for one felony and two misdemeanors for placing a woman in a headlock, kissing another woman and grabbing the buttocks of a third. He pleaded guilty in October in an agreement with prosecutors, who will recommend that he get three months of home confinement and three years of probation. Filner, 71, has avoided even close supporters since
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has announced a new five-year strategic plan to improve safety for elderly drivers and passengers. Although they are statistically among the safest on the road, the number of older drivers is increasing dramatically — and with it, that group´s numbers of injuries and deaths. Since 2003, the population of older adults, defined as age 65 and older, has increased by 20% and the number of licensed older drivers increased by 21% to 35 million in 2012, according to NHTSA. Last year, NHTSA reported that 5,560 people older than 65 died and 214,000 were injured
A veteran Washington adviser who has worked for four Presidents on both sides of the political aisle said that the stunning Government Accountability Report report that found President Barack Obama has not had a one-on-one meeting with Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius since the passage of Obamacare over three years ago is an indictment of the entire White House operation and shows that the Obama administration has bordered on "malfeasance." "I have no doubt the White House is right, that Secretary Sebelius was in several group meetings with the president about health care," Gergen caveated, "but the whole
President Barack Obama’s Facebook page on Saturday posted a message honoring the dead from Pearl Harbor—accompanied by a picture of Obama descending the stairs next to the Pearl Harbor Memorial. The picture barely fits the name of the Arizona Memorial so it can frame Obama in the foreground. The post´s statement reads: Today, with solemn pride and reverence, let us remember those who fought and died at Pearl Harbor, acknowledge everyone who carried their legacy forward, and reaffirm our commitment to upholding the ideals for which they served. President Obama The Obama Administration´s current shipbuilding plan shrinks the size of
Barack Obama did not tell the whole story this autumn when he tried to make the case that Bashar al-Assad was responsible for the chemical weapons attack near Damascus on 21 August. In some instances, he omitted important intelligence, and in others he presented assumptions as facts. Most significant, he failed to acknowledge something known to the US intelligence community: that the Syrian army is not the only party in the country’s civil war with access to sarin, the nerve agent that a UN study concluded – without assessing responsibility – had been used in the rocket attack. In the months before the attack,
Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, the hapless, goalpost-shifting so-called "architect" of Obamacare, told Fox News´ Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday that President Barack Obama´s promise "if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor" was absolutely true--with one important caveat: if you like your doctor, "you can pay for it." Wallace grilled Dr. Emanuel, challenging his false claims that California´s enrollment was keeping pace with the percentage of the young population necessary to keep the system afloat, and pointing out that the president´s promise on doctors would collapse once people lost their insurance or their
Just how much do many Hollywood liberals hate conservatives? In an interview with Playboy, Ben Affleck said, "When I watch a guy [on film] I know is a big Republican, part of me thinks, I probably wouldn’t like this person if I met him": PLAYBOY: You developed a political profile campaigning for presidential candidates Al Gore, John Kerry and Barack Obama. How did that come about? AFFLECK: I grew up in a house with a mother who was a teacher and a Freedom Rider—very left-wing Democrats living in a heterogeneous working-class neighborhood. I picked up a lot of those values there, and I
The U.S. isn´t called "America the Beautiful" for nothing. Each year, millions of tourists come from home and abroad to see the country´s majestic landscape and iconic sites, from the Grand Canyon to the Statue of Liberty. But there are also cool, quirky attractions, like Vermont´s Ben & Jerry´s Factory and Tennessee´s Graceland, the former home of Rock and Roll King Elvis Presley. From California to New York and everywhere in between, the country is chock-full of incredible attractions that keep luring in visitors. Here are the best tourist attractions in every state.
