Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) hosted a packed forum about immigration reform in her home district of Houston, Texas last week. For anyone concerned about the specter of "comprehensive" immigration reform becoming legal reality, the event provided two cold, hard slaps in the face. The first, and expected smack was how the one-sided event completely ignored the very real problems the nation faces regarding immigration and jobs. The second, more stinging blow came with the realization that the anti-amnesty calvary didn´t arrive; while hundreds of pro-reform voices filled Houston´s City Hall, only three adults showed up to make the case

How can black people, with a 40% unemployment rate among black youth, not oppose millions of undeserving, illegal competitors being allowed to take away whatever jobs they do have, or in the best case, severely depress their job security, wages and opportunities? Has the black population voluntarily given itself and its future generations in slavery to the elites?
Apparently conservatives and libertarians are too busy or too lazy to care much about where this country is headed. For all the clamor about approval ratings and other pre-election indicators, Ø was returned to office because of indifference.
Now our borders and, eventually, our Constitution are about to become meaningless for the same reason.
Pushy bustards, aren´t they? They push their way into our country, steal the fruits of our labor (WIC, welfare, food stamps etc)..then gather in large numbers unafraid that they are lawbreakers, knowing they won´t be arrested and demand MORE. NO !
Thank you #3, but I think the gang of Ocho is totally liberal. This big push is fully a leftist one, and if you want to place blame, put it where it belongs, in the lap of the Democrat Party and their lap dogs.
The question is, why is our so called government supporting criminals over a majority of tax paying, hard working citizens. If I was Latino citizen, I would wonder why Obama and the Democrat Party are supporting people like Trayvon Martion over George Zimmerman who should have never been tried for any crime since there wasn´t any evidence that would convict him. they speak with forked tongues, as always.
Dangerous if you be Black or Brown for that matter.
As for why would blacks be for something that will take jobs away from them? Maybe they don´t want those jobs anyway - too much hassle getting up in the morning and all. They already have free healthcare in the form of EMRs and Medicaid - and Obama will pay for food and rent regardless. Indeed, why work unless it´s a cushy government AA job?
#1, Here is the skinny. Those socialist black folks surrounding Sheila Jackson Lee think that if they can get tens of millions of new people of color into the USA, that they will finally outnumber the "crackers" and be able to take over the USA through the principle of one man one vote. If that were to happen, besides of the city of Detroit being destroyed, it would not be long before the entire USA would be destroyed. The liberal Democrats are facilitating that simply to maintain their political power. You really can´t trust the wimpy Republicans to ensure such a massive influx of poor and generally uneducated foreign born people from the third world will not be legalized here and be granted US voting rights in the near future, as all the Sheila Jackson Lees in congress and the liberal Democrats in general have to do to succeed is to play the race card against the wimpy Republicans, and they will usually cave, that´s the history of the go along to get along wimpy Republicans.
If one were a truly neutral, objective observer - say an intelligent being from outer space researching US culture and politics - over the past few years, such an observer could not be faulted by concluding the self proclaimed conservatives and patriots were in practice disorganized, apathetic, and lazy. If they began their observation directly after the 2012 elections, they might even be justified in concluding they might even be cowardly, or at a minimum suicidally risk averse and dependent upon their phantom political "betters" to do the heavy lifting.
In contrast, the individual and collective actions of the Marxists, Muslims, illegal aliens, race mongers, false media propagandists, and garden variety criminals, leeches, and deviants could be viewed as bold and tireless in their pursuits to completely overpower a once productive and powerful people who were formerly the model of constitutionally-based self governance and rule of law.
Blacks and hispanics don´t really care for each other but they´re united by the common cause of hating white people. they figure if Obama has free reign,he would give them whatever they wanted and all at whitey´s expense.
Obama and wall st have been bullying Bernake for a longtime now to keep the money rolling and if that has to stop for some reason,you could see a huge stock sell off and trillions disappearing over night.These people aren´t about to donate their wealth to social justice schemes anyway.
I don´t care what the tax tables say,the welfare crowd has been living off middle class tax receipts,not rich people´s because there simply aren´t enough rich people to generate that kind of revenue.
The point is,Obama´s deceiving these lofo types,knowing he doesn´t have the money to give them a rockstar lifestyle,instead he just blames republicans.
The Hollywood Reporter gathered some of the biggest names in the entertainment industry Wednesday morning at the Beverly Hills Hotel for the 22nd annual Women in Entertainment breakfast to honor the Power 100 and present Oprah Winfrey with a leadership award named for former Paramount and 20th Century Fox exec Sherry Lansing. Lansing took the stage at the packed event, sponsored by Lifetime, Gucci, Samsung Galaxy, Audi, Roberto Coin, Guggenheim, City National Bank, the Gersh Agency, Loyola Marymount University and the Entertainment Industry Foundation, to speak about Winfrey, whom she called one of her personal idols. "You conduct your life in
President Barack Obama reportedly plans to nominate Stanley Fischer to be the next vice chairman of the Federal Reserve. The former Bank of Israel Chief would take over for Janet Yellen when she leaves the post to become Fed chairwoman. Fischer, a dual-citizen of the U.S. and Israel, served as the head of Israel’s central bank for eight-years before stepping down on June 30 of this year. Later this summer, the economist sung the Fed’s praises on the Charlie Rose Show. “The United States managed — although it is hard for Americans to believe — managed the crisis better than
Walking out of a private conference room beneath the Capitol Building on Tuesday, Republican House members looked tired. Not the typical "I-had-a-bad-night’s-sleep" tired but something deeper — a look of battle exhaustion. Unlike past meetings in the same place during periods of fever-pitched warfare with Democrats, it appeared — for the first time in a long time — the fire in their bellies that drove them to shut down the government and risk federal default, was, for now, no longer evident. These Republicans had just been briefed on a new, bipartisan budget blueprint that would establish long-term federal government spending
MIAMI- George Zimmerman will not face domestic violence charges because his girlfriend did not wish to pursue the case and there was scant evidence of a crime, a state prosecutor said Wednesday. Samantha Scheibe´s decision not to cooperate and the lack of other corroborating evidence would have made the case difficult to prove, State Attorney Phil Archer in Seminole County said in a statement. "There is no reasonable likelihood of a successful prosecution," Archer said. Zimmerman, 30, had faced charges of aggravated assault, battery and criminal mischief following a Nov. 18 confrontation at the central Florida house he shared with
In a contentious exchange with Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius over her repeated claims that mandated health services do not raise costs for consumers in the form of higher insurance premiums, Rep. John Shimkus (R-Ill.) waved his hand in apparent surrender and said to her, “It’s like talking to the Republic of Korea or something.” Shimkus apparently was referring to North Korea, the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, where the Communist rulers there spout pro-government propaganda that is then glowingly reported by state-run media.(Video)
"The journalistic bond between The Post and MSNBC just grew a bit stronger, as the paper’s opinion section announced that MSNBC host Rachel Maddow will be writing a monthly column." So began Washington Post media critic Erik Wemple´s announcement Wednesday concerning the addition of the perilously liberal Maddow to the Post opinion page.Honestly, if you were the Post, would you want your relationship with the so-called "news network" considered by most to be the biggest farce in journalism to grow stronger? After the high profile dismissal of Alec Baldwin and Martin Bashir, is this really the time to be adding
Christmas miracle or sickly sweet PR stunt? Either way, it´s unlikely these WestJet passengers care after they had their wildest holiday wishes granted during a flight across Canada. Travelers pitching up at Toronto Pearson and John C. Munro Hamilton International Airports for flights to Calgary were surprised when a virtual Santa Claus asked what they wanted for Christmas. A promo video sees a variety of passengers telling Father Christmas their dream gift.With their wishes made, the footage shows them merrily taking their place on the aircrafts.
Sen. Lamar Alexander’s chief of staff, Ryan Loskarn, is under investigation for child pornography. The Republican Senator from Tennessee revealed Wednesday that law enforcement officers are searching Loskarn´s private residence. “I am stunned, surprised and disappointed by what I have learned,” the Senator said. Alexander, 73, made the announcement on Wednesday, indicating he "was just informed by the United States Senate legal counsel’s office" of the search. The staffer has been placed on administrative leave without pay.
RENO, Nevada- A couple and four young children missing in frigid weather since they went on an outing to play in the snow on Sunday were found alive in a remote mountain range in Nevada on Tuesday huddled in their overturned vehicle, a sheriff´s dispatch supervisor said. The couple had taken their two children and the woman´s niece and nephew, who range in age from 3 to 10, to an abandoned mining camp in the Seven Troughs range of northwestern Nevada, Pershing County dispatch supervisor Sheila Reitz said. The six were found in good condition and were treated for exposure
The troubled son of a church pastor who is a spiritual advisor to Barack Obama has died in an apparent suicide. Father-of-three Isaac Hunter, 36, had been battling problems since resigning from a Florida megachurch he founded after admitting to an affair with a staff member last year. A judge also granted his wife a domestic-violence petition after claiming his erratic behavior and alcohol abuse had left her ´fearing for my life and the lives of our three children.´ According to court documents, Hunter had written an undated suicide note saying: ´I have become what I never wished to be,
A federal judge said General Motors Co is not required to pay $450 million to cover medical benefits for retirees, in a defeat for the United Auto Workers union. In a 36-page decision, U.S. District Judge Avern Cohn in Detroit said on Tuesday that the current GM did not assume any obligation for the payment, which the automaker had contracted to make two years before its June 2009 bankruptcy filing. The payment had been part of a June 2007 contract between the old GM, its former Delphi Corp affiliate and the UAW. It was not, however, included in a different
MOSCOW— A Russian Cabinet member says Moscow has reserved the right to use nuclear weapons in response to a conventional strike. Wednesday´s comments by Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin carried by Russian news agencies reflected Moscow´s concern with prospective U.S. weapons. Weapons that have been developed in the U.S. under the so-called "prompt global strike" program would be capable of striking targets anywhere in the world in as little as an hour with deadly precision. Russia, which has lagged far behind in developing such weapons, has described them as destabilizing. Without naming the U.S., Rogozin said that those who "experiment
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
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
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
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
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!”
A “presidential selfie” featuring President Barack Obama, British Prime Minister David Cameron, and Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt at Nelson Mandela’s memorial service began making the rounds this morning, but it’s the person not included in the frame who caught everyone’s attention: As anyone with two eyes and a Twitter account has noticed, Michelle Obama does not appear amused. Of course, though a picture says a thousand words, not all of those words are necessarily true. FLOTUS might not have even known the photo was taking place. Or she could disapprove of funeral selfies. Either way.
President Obama’s job approval among American voters has dropped to negative territory with just 38 percent voicing their approval versus the 58 who says they disapprove, according to a national poll released Tuesday by the independent Quinnipiac University. That is one percent less than the 39% who said they approved of him in last month’s poll. The majority of the 2,692 registered voters the University in early December said that the president is not honest and trustworthy. When asked, “Do you approve or disapprove of the way Barack Obama is handling his job as President?,” respondents gave Obama lackluster ratings
Looks like this president can’t get away with flirting in front of his wife… It appears that first lady Michelle Obama was none too pleased with the way that President Barack Obama was acting toward Denmark Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt during a ceremony honoring Nelson Mandela, and before too long, they switched seats. This lmao! Michelle Obama vs Prime Minister of Denmark at Mandela´s ceremony. pic.twitter.com/Rq4uF9fTaZ — Stun (@TheBlogPirate) December 10, 2013
Barack Obama has arrived in South Africa to lead the American delegation at a memorial service for former South African President Nelson Mandela in Johannesburg. But his party is reportedly stuck in traffic and he is said to have arrived late at the stadium for the ceremony. [Snip] But Mr Clinton, Mr Carter and his wife Rosalynn have all traveled separately to the event. According to reports, Mr Obama and his delegation are stuck in a lines of traffic caused by tens of thousands of people making their way to the event. Mr Obama is among the foreign leaders who
The sign language interpreter at Nelson Mandela´s memorial yesterday "made up his own signs," according to South Africa´s deaf federation. "He´s a complete fraud," Cara Loening, director of Sign Language Education and Development in Cape Town, said according to ITV News. "He wasn´t even doing anything, There was not one sign there. Nothing. He was literally flapping his arms around." Delphin Hlungwane, an official South African sign language interpreter at DeafSA, told Reuters:
