Immigration is in the news, and legislation is being proposed that relies on the Obama administration to execute, in good faith, the nation’s laws. But the Obama administration doesn’t do that. Instead, the administration arrogantly ignores laws it doesn’t like, in violation of Barack Obama’s constitutional duty to “take care that the laws be faithfully executed.” This is most notoriously the case with respect to immigration and welfare. We have written about this on several occasions; Jeff Sessions, ranking member on the Senate Budget Committee, sums up the administration’s sorry history in a press release
I think it´s important to be able to prove you can support yourself and that´s how it used to be. I did not have a sponsor when I applied to the U.S.A. for a work visa in 1954--I was young (22) and had no doubt I could get a job but (embarassingly) I had to go to my banker and entreat him to write to the American authorities to vouch for me on the basis of a set of sterling silver flatware that I owned! Can you imagine such a thing today?!!!
Maybe it´s just time to do away with the stupid pretense of the oath of office.Obama has taken the oath 4 times now and has become more anti-constitution with each passing day. Here we are revving up gun laws on people minding their own business while the criminal element in this country has never had it so good. That goes from wall st crooks down the street hustling thugs,there´s no room in jail for anymore.
A lot of big famous companies were founded and built by conservative people but because of sellouts and mergers,the formally successful companies are now being ran by Ivy League grads who don´t understand the first thing about business except if they´re slick enough,there´s a nice year end bonus for them.
Even the ones who want to play by the rules are being forced by Obama regulation thugs and trail lawyers into doing the wrong things,such as making bad home loans,which are back again.
Everytime one of these loans fail there´s a hedge fund crook or derivative schemer that cashes in The home buyers are dupes intended to enrich crooked liberals down the line.
But anyway,now Obama is enticing more illegal immigration with the lure of free healthcare on top of food stamps and the rest.
Obama has the gall to claim the border is already secure,even though their own figures show 30% of border bangers are making it through.They´re trying to get in here before amnesty is imposed and they won´t have to worry about being deported.
All they have to do is make it a felony to break in here and that would disqualify them from many gov´t benefits and be thrown in jail instead.
With a totally corrupt DOJ and Press under his thumb Obama can do whatever he pleases. Unless the GOP members of the House and Senate are willing to take him on he will remain an out of control monster. D.C. Democrats must be scared witless of him.
That is exactly the point Rush made following his Rubio interview. The pResident is lawless so any plan will not work while Obama is in office. Rubio made the point that Obama won´t always be in office several times during the interview. Although Rush was very skeptical about the plan what he likes about Rubio is his passion and his ability to express his ideas clearly. He is also young and the GOP definitely needs new, young blood to carry on in the future.
This foreign resident of the WH is unqualified for holding the most important office in our land. He is a fraud, an enemy, and a usurper who is dismantling our America as the legislative and judicial branches look on, as if they´re powerless, indifferent, or complicit. How did we get to this stage?
This skinny, Kenyan, choom-smoker, is like an unruly, undisciplined child left to throw temper tantrums and wreak havoc in someone else´s home without consequence.
Oh, how I dream that the truth about him being revealed and seeing that smug look on his face wiped away as he´s prosecuted for his crimes against America.
History bears out that there is always a point in time when an evil agenda could be stopped. It is discussed, books and articles are written about it asking why the people did not see it coming in order to prevent it from happening. We analyze it because we don´t ever want it to happen in the future. However, I fear we have passed the point in time when this Obamination could be stopped. There has been opportunity after opportunity to stop this but it seems to keep barreling on. Each time I think it can´t get worse, it does. I believe it is going to take divine intervention to stop Obama because my confidence in the elected officials in Washington DC is gone.
I think many can see the Great American Experiment slipping away. What was borne of Europe is returning to its roots. The discrediting of the founders and the Constitution is a major part of today´s curriculum. Young people have no clue. What is being lost is the Horatio Alger version of the American Dream as well as the notion of E pluribus unum. In it´s place a strange Balkanization based on race and sense of entitlement.
Benjamin Franklin said it best... “Well, Doctor, what have we got, a Republic or a Monarchy?”
# 5 Other than making speeches railing against his policies and lax or non enforcement of federal laws, Republicans don´t have many options. Everything the decreased Republican majority in the House passes , like budgets that cut spending- Reid ignores. The Democrats 10 seat majority in the Senate is an incredible protection and shield for Obama. Plus, the national media continues to protect him and cover up his lawless behavior. The 2014 midterm elections in 21 months should scare us all. Obama only needs to flip 17 more seats in the House to retake control of that body. If he then totally controls Congress, the presidency and the media , it will be like his first two years -only on steroids.
I long for the day when the Obama trial is being televised and the lawyers are dragging out all of his henchmen to testify for and against him. I could write a list of the kenyan witch´s flying monkeys here but I would go over the word limit.
This is precisely why I cannot stand Marco Rubio. He is neither stupid nor naive, but apparently thinks all the rest of us are.
Rubio insists that amnesty will be conditioned upon first securing the border. But we all know Obama has a history, outlined in this article, of ignoring and refusing to enforce the laws he doesn´t like. Rubio knows very well, just like we do, that the Obama administration will just declare the border secure (oh, right, they already did that), ignore any such condition, and proceed directly to handing out amnesty cards.
The only way immigration can be responsibly addressed is to secure the border first, now, with no strings and no related legislation. There should not even be a discussion of amnesty until the border is as close as possible to 100% locked down. Then, in a couple years after the construction has been completed, we can begin to discuss what to do with all the illegals that are here.
Rubio must think Republicans and conservatives are the stupidest, most gullible beings on the face of the planet. I trust him about as far as I can throw 100 miles of border fence.
Any new immigration reform will work just like it does now, fence or not. The law abiding will wait years to enter and will not have a chance at a job when/if they do because there will be no jobs. The ones who break the law will work underground or join drug and prostitution enterprises, just like they do now. The only way to ever get control is to round up and sentence all illegals to 1-2 years hard labor (not prison) and then deport them. Then make them eligible to go to the end of the line and re-apply the legal way. I don´t care how many children they have, the children can go with them. Their friends in Mexico will get the message. Then tell the Mexican government that we will cut off all aid and ban US tourism to Mexico until they start to control border crossing from their side.
Tell me one other country that is as generous with its taxpayer´s financial support of immigrants outside of the euroweenie nations.
This is getting old. The country KNOWS what Obama does skirts around the edges of the law and the constitution. We the choir are tired if being preached to. The choir wants to know, what can be done? Voting doesn´t seem to be effective any more.
The Texas Republican Party is reopening the filing period for Rep. Steve Stockman´s (R-Texas) congressional district after his last-second decision to run instead against Sen. John Cornyn (R). Stockman filed for Cornyn´s seat rather than reelection just minutes before the state´s legal filing deadline Monday night, giving aspiring politicians in the district no heads up that he was doing so. The party´s move gives candidates an additional week, with the new filing deadline set for next Monday. Texas Republican Party spokesman Spencer Yeldell said the party was reopening the filing because it´s required by Texas´s election code. Stockman is facing a steep uphill
Hill staffers that signed up for ObamaCare through the Washington, D.C., healthcare exchange, called DC Health Link (DCHL), are being told to confirm their enrollments in person, and not to rely on data provided by the website. The Hill obtained an email sent to staffers on Wednesday warning them that “it is essential that you confirm your coverage in DCHL through the Disbursing Office.” “Do not rely on your ‘My Account’ page or other correspondence from DCHL,” the email reads. “Please do not assume you are covered unless you have seen the confirmation letter from the Disbursing Office,” the email continues. Hill workers had
The Obama administration expedited visa applications for about two dozen foreign investors for a Las Vegas casino hotel after pressure from Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and his staff, the Washington Times reported Tuesday. The Times, citing internal government documents, said the decision to overturn a prior, normally non-appealable visa decision ultimately benefited several companies whose executives have been heavy Democratic donors. The paper said it also came despite concerns about “suspicious financial activity” involving some Asian applicants. Reid, who represents Nevada, personally reached out to the top official at U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, Alejandro Mayorkas, setting in motion a process that
California’s budding doctor rebellion against Obamacare appears to be genuinely spontaneous, lacking leadership from a single individual or organization. As the Washington Examiner has reported in recent days, an estimated 70 percent of California´s physicians -- ranging from general practitioners to specialists -- are "just saying no" to Obamacare´s Covered California health insurance exchange. Although it appears leaderless, some observers believe that very spontaneity may make the doctor rebellion a formidable force in California’s health-care future. “Doctors are realizing what is happening and spontaneously they are acting like this. There’s a movement growing,” said Sally Pipes, president of the San Francisco-based
Democrats make a lot of silly statements. The trick isn’t finding a pronouncement by a liberal politician which — in a way nearly unique to politics — simultaneously brings a grimace, a giggle, and a groan, but figuring out whether the speaker is an outright liar or just living in a liberal echo chamber reminiscent of Pauline Kael (or at least the political mythology surrounding her). Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL), chair of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, is a reliable representative of the outright liar camp: No echo is loud enough to make her actually believe that Democratic candidates will
It’s long been said that Democrats and their supporters who cry “racism!” at everything that smells like opposition to their left-wing agenda are misguided, or in some cases, smear merchants who lack all credibility whatsoever (looking at you, MSNBC). Well, get a load of the T-shirt that this recently departed national figure – whose impeccable left-wing bonafides should never be doubted – has on:(Snip for photo)That’s anti-apartheid leader Nelson Mandela wearing a T-shirt that endorses getting an ID and voting in 1998. We’ll anxiously be waiting your apology. Oh wait, you won’t apologize, will you?
No, Obamacare isn’t Katrina for Democrats. Katrina was an act of God and/or nature, a phenomenon beyond the control of mere human beings, a catastrophe not of choice, but of nature’s necessity, outside the realm of man’s will. George W. Bush didn’t cause it to happen, nothing he did could have made it not happen, and he surely did not make it worse. The federal response wasn’t inspired, but the reason this mattered was that the mayor of New Orleans and the governor of Louisiana were not only perhaps the two stupidest people ever to hold public office, but the stupidest people
When I was a kid, I knew two different Santa Clauses. The first had a fat belly, rosy cheeks, a long white beard, and skin as pink as bubble gum. He was omnipresent, visiting my pre-school and the local mall, visible in all of my favorite Christmas specials. Then there was the Santa in my family’s household, in the form of ornaments, cards, and holiday figurines. A near-carbon copy of the first one—big belly, rosy cheeks, long white beard: check, check, check. But his skin was as dark as mine. Seeing two different Santas was bewildering. Eventually I asked my father what
US President Barack Obama may have moved the masses attending Nelson Mandela’s memorial service with his stirring eulogy, but it was his grinning "selfie" with the Danish and British premiers that set social networks abuzz. In a candid moment captured by a photographer, Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt can be seen holding up her smartphone, with Obama lending a helping hand, as they pose for a picture with David Cameron, all three of them smiling broadly in their seats at Soweto’s World Cup stadium.(Snip)Mashable, the news and technology website, ran the photograph under the headline: ‘‘Dear Obama: Funerals are no place
On his way to the podium at the memorial ceremony for former South African president Nelson Mandela, President Obama walked down the line of dignitaries, greeting other leaders there to pay their respects. Among the hands shaken: that of Cuban leader Raul Castro. Obama neither made a special effort to shake Castro’s hand nor to avoid him. A snub might have been awkward: In his speech, Obama praised Mandela’s “greatest gift” as “his recognition that we are all bound together in ways that can be invisible to the eye; that there is a oneness to humanity; that we achieve ourselves by
The Obama State Department has finally released a second round of photos revealing the harrowing devastation wrought by a terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012. The new photographs depict rampant damage to the consulate. They show charred walls, smoldering fires, Arabic graffiti defacing exterior walls, and scattered debris throughout. The extent of the damage would lead any reasonably serious person to conclude that this was a cold, calculated attack, carefully coordinated to mark the 11th anniversary of Sept. 11, 2001. Unfortunately for the American people, the Obama-Clinton-Rice cabal that led to the Benghazi cover-up was
Johannesburg - A man who provided sign language interpretation on stage for Nelson Mandela´s memorial service, attended by scores of heads of state, was a "fake," the national director of the Deaf Federation of South Africa said on Tuesday. Asked about the claim by The Associated Press, South Africa´s government said it was preparing a statement. Three sign language experts said the man was not signing in South African or American sign languages. South African sign language covers all of the country´s 11 official languages, according to the federation. It wasn´t immediately clear if the unidentified man was using a
A black fashion student says he was brutally attacked by a gang of Hasidic men who shouted anti-gay slurs at him while he was walking through Williamsburg after a night of partying, the Daily News has learned. Taj Patterson, 22, was headed home to Fort Greene around 4:30 a.m. on Dec. 1 when he says more than a dozen ultra-Orthodox Jewish men began assaulting him on Flushing Ave. and yelling, “Stay down, f----t!”
House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) snapped at conservative groups that have come out in opposition to the budget deal reached Wednesday between Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.). "They´re using the American people for their own purposes. This is ridiculous," Boehner said at a press conference with other members of House Republican leadership on Wednesday. Over the past few days, a number of conservative groups have blasted the deal because it sets discretionary spending levels in the budget higher than previous levels under sequestration. In the past three days, the influential Heritage Action, Club for Growth, Americans
