The WSJ Tirade Against Retreat
on Immigration ‘Reform’

PJ Media, by Andrew C. McCarthy

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 2/12/2014 8:51:59 AM

As noted in my weekend column at National Review Online, last Thursday’s Wall Street Journal editorial on the IRS scandal was stellar. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for last Wednesday’s editorial on immigration – a rant against the Republican establishment’s sudden retreat from plans to push for immigration “reform” this year. A number of conservative commentators, myself included, were baffled by the GOP’s apparent embrace of “amnesty first, enforcement (maybe) later” proposals. Those initiatives, while preferred by the Journal, the Chamber of Commerce, the Obama administration, and congressional Democrats, are anathema to Main Street – including the GOP’s conservative base,

Comments:
This is another excellent piece by Mr. McCarthy. The WSJ also supports open borders. What a dangerous destructive agenda for our country. The link is to an article from the WSJ showing their support for open borders: http://tinyurl.com/lsuhege

The ´conservatives´ that are for ´immigration reform´ don´t have to live with the results surrounding them. They have their own enclaves and society that is almost completely divorced from the reality all us underlings live in.

Obama will not enforce border security provisions that would satisfy national security or law-and-order proponents. And after amnesty, passing any border security measures would be politically difficult.

Why can´t it be as annoying for a border crossing alien to enter the country as it is for an American citizen to re-enter the country after an overseas trip?

I don’t understand how supposedly conservatives can be for Slavery.
We currently have illegal aliens working for under the table pay. You cannot
Tell me that if these were minimum wage jobs, Americans (kids, young adults etc) would be working them…and they are not. Look at any construction site and see the ethnicity of those working.
For the most part Latin and probably paid below the required wage.
If all illegal’s become citizens, they can no longer work for ‘under the table’ wages. It is all
tracked as part of being a citizen. This opens the door for a NEW wave of illegals to backfill
the jobs paying shadow wages. Slavery is Slavery is Slavery . This is like the old share cropper system.

Every day you can read another postmortem on the "Affordable Care Act" - as if all the information wasn´t there years ago for everyone to see.

Pass immigration reform and we will have a variety of postmortems on "Immigration Reform" - as if all the information isn´t there NOW for everyone to see!

After, who would turn back the bedcovers for the elitists at the WSJ, cook their meals in the WSJ lunchroom, mow their lawns, do the heavy construction at low pay, all while the elitists at WSJ and DC took the money to pay for it from the middle class, and kept their own for vacations and other elitist diversions.

Interesting that the WSJ and Chamber of Commerce are turning left so fast it is making them dizzy. What illegal immigration boils down to in commercial world is that illegals are the new slaves and leftists and business consider them to be just that, cheap slave labor and eventual voters.

This century´s slaves are convenient because they really do not have any legal standing as citizens here now, so they can and will be taken advantage of in any number of ways.

This causes problems because crooked politicians consider them as new voters and want them legalized. While that is going on, legal citizens should rise up and throw the politicians who favor legalizing them out of office.

Meanwhile, these new slaves are thinning out your voting power and lowering wages to advance the situations above. In the final analysis, our government favors criminal invaders politically and businesses choose cheap foreign labor to the detriment of the people they are supposed to serve.

Meanwhile the American medical system is being messed up by the same government while the illegal criminals get free medical treatment by government law. Hell they even spend your money to send them to school. How did this get so screwed up?

Too many prospective foreign born Democrat voters out there in the massive illegal alien population group for the liberal Democrats to ever actually support the effective enforcement of the immigration laws. That is just not going to happen and any Republican politician who believes that the Republicans can deal with the liberal Democrats on that issue is a political moron. The only way to alleviate that is to pass a constitutional amendment to the effect that illegal aliens who are granted amnesty, or who enter a legalization program, are permanently barred from US citizenship.

So 53 percent of Americans disapprove of ObamaCare. But is it me or Republicans behaving like it´s a 100 percent? Because I don´t know about you, but hanging your election hat on 53 percent seems dicey to me. I´m not saying ObamaCare won´t be and shouldn´t be an issue. But stopping action on any other issue in the meantime looks pretty stupid. Look, I was the first to say this Affordable Care Act wasn´t affordable and the promises behind it were just an act.

Jimmy Carter: Obama the Only President

Jimmy Carter has been very active in the decades since his presidency, and his successors have occasionally called for his advice. Except, it turns out, the current occupant of the office. A clip from Carter’s upcoming Meet the Press interview reveals that President Obama is the first president since Carter left office not to solicit the Southern Democrat’s advice. Carter explained, “President Clinton did and President George W. Bush and H.W. Bush and even Ronald Reagan used to call on us to go into sensitive areas.” They all asked Carter to deal with “unsavory characters,” but Obama hasn’t reached out to

Next week, the Planned Parenthood Federation of America will present House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) with the Margaret Sanger Award. The award is the group’s “highest honor” and is named for a woman who believed in breeding better humans through eugenics. Planned Parenthood is the nation´s leading abortion provider, having performed 327,166 of the procedures in 2012, according to its latest annual report. Pelosi, a Catholic, will receive the Margaret Sanger Award at the PPFA’s annual gala in Washington, D.C. on Mar. 27.

Last week, President Obama directed his Homeland Security Department to examine its current deportation practices -- "to see how it can conduct enforcement more humanely, within the confines of the law," the White House announced on March 13. But with immigration reform stalled in Congress, what more can Obama do? "I think he´s going to wait until August," said Telemundo anchor and immigration-reform advocate José Díaz-Balart. And if Congress doesn´t act on immigration reform by then, "I wouldn´t be surprised if he starts making some very controversial executive orders to mitigate the pain of millions of people who face deportation," Díaz-Balart told

Susan Rice, national security adviser to President Barack Obama, said on Friday that the administration still believes there is a diplomatic solution to the crisis in Ukraine as Russian troops mobilized along the country’s entire eastern border. CBS News reported on Friday that a mass mobilization of Russian forces was taking place on Ukraine’s eastern border with at least twice as many troops as the 20,000 number originally reported. The defense “exercise” included tanks and tactical aircraft and appeared to show signs of a logistical buildup required for a sustained operation. Obama on Thursday announced additional sanctions against Kremlin officials and oligarchs

Here’s a question I’ll bet nobody ever asked Jay Carney at a White House press briefing: Why does Michelle Obama’s mother live at the White House at taxpayer expense? (If someone has asked, please send link for me to stand corrected.) Now that Michelle Obama’s mother has caused a disruption on the latest exotic vacation for the first lady, perhaps it is time for some answers about why Marian Robinson is even on the trip to China. Worse, why is she appearing in official photographs with Chinese officials? Drudge is reporting in big bold lead letters that Marian Robinson is barking

White House press secretary Jay Carney said Friday the administration is deeply concerned the Turkish government attempted to block access to Twitter in the country. Carney said the administration has spoken to Turkey´s government about the issue and has urged it to restore access to the social media service. "We have conveyed our serious concern to the Turkish government, urge Turkish authorities to respect the freedom of the press by permitting the independent and unfettered operation of media of all kinds, and support the people of Turkey in their calls to restore full access to the blocked technologies," Carney said

Theory: Maybe Black Toddlers Are Suspended

Atlantic Wire, by Philip Bump    Original Article

In 2011, over 8,000 kids were suspended from preschool — preschool! — in America. More than half were black, despite comprising less than half of the student population. Sure, we can entertain a lot of theories why this is the case, but I am going to go with this one: America has a problem with racism. The odds are probably better than even that you will be annoyed by that. Which is fine. I accept that response. And there are a lot of possibilities that could explain how this bit of data is an aberration. As the Associated Press reports, the

FBI, IRS, and Rhode Island law enforcement officials entered the Rhode Island State House on Friday, apparently to collect evidence from the offices of Rhode Island House Speaker Gordon Fox. A spokesperson for the Democrat´s office said to the AP that his staffers weren´t informed why they were asked to leave the premises by state police. Fox´s office and his attorney declined comment on the incident, while the U.S. Attorney´s office would only say that law enforcement officials were carrying out two search warrants at the State House.

The White House has reportedly begun testing smartphones from Samsung and LG, perhaps indicating that BlackBerry may soon lose one of its most high-profile customers. Testing is only in the early stages at this point, but the White House internal technology team and communications agency are testing Android devices from the two South Korean phone makers, according to the Wall Street Journal, which cites an unnamed source. The implementation of Samsung or LG phones is still months away, but this is the first indication that the White House is preparing to move away from using BlackBerry.

Are you are among the uninitiated lumpenproletariat who believe the decline of the Roman Empire was attributable to a multitude of factors? Do you still naively assume that rampant immorality, political corruption, inability to effectuate regime change without violence and bloodletting, failure to curb runaway inflation, the complete over extension of military resources and the eventual drought of plunder were among the reasons for the fall of Rome? Then you obviously have not read the latest NASA report on how the benighted empire could have avoided collapse if only it had adhered to the tenets of Karl Marx. Apparently, Rome

Is Barack Obama simply too busy to be Chief Executive of the United States? Apparently. One of the primary functions of the president is to keep the nation safe, to preserve it from its enemies. To do that effectively, one would actually have to maintain something of a consistent level of attention to the moving pieces that directly influence how future events will unfold. None other than the truly sycophantic thinks for a second that President Obama cares a whit for anything that does not involve fundamentally altering the social composition of this country. Or golf.

A Washington Post story purporting to expose the Koch brothers as behind-the-scenes beneficiaries of the Keystone Pipeline has been exposed as an utterly false propaganda operation, hilariously wrong and politically malicious. Even worse, one of the writers behind the story is married to a political operative in the left wing Koch-demonization machine. The Washington Post was recently purchased by Jeff Bezos of Amazon, who ought to take a hard look at the reporters and editors who collaborated with the left wing smear machine, and while he is at it, should send a note of thanks to John Hinderaker, the blogger

In a speech Friday, Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush praised illegal immigrants as "risk takers" who embody the entrepreneurial spirit of America and doubled down on his defense of Common Core. According to the Miami-Herald, Bush made his remarks in front of business leaders in Florida. “People who come here legally and illegally are the risk takers,” Bush reportedly said. “If you’re living in a rural area of Guatemala and you come, you’re a bigger risk taker than those who stay,” he added. Of course, the first action of those who come to the country illegally is breaking the law. Bush also said he

Black students are more likely to be suspended from U.S. public schools — even as tiny preschoolers. The racial disparities in American education, from access to high-level classes and experienced teachers to discipline, were highlighted in a report released Friday by the Education Department´s civil rights arm. The suspensions — and disparities — begin at the earliest grades. Black children represent about 18 percent of children in preschool programs in schools, but they make up almost half of the preschoolers who are suspended more than once, the report said. Six percent of the nation´s districts with preschools reported suspending at
