Billionaires Call For Amnesty As Obama
Plans To Legalize Millions of Illegal
Aliens With Executive Power

Breitbart´s Big Government, by Matthew Boyle

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 7/11/2014 3:01:00 PM

Billionaires Warren Buffett, Sheldon Adelson and Bill Gates have teamed up to call for amnesty for America’s illegal immigrants as a solution to the ongoing crisis at the border as President Barack Obama mulls granting amnesty to millions via executive power. “The three of us vary in our politics and would differ also in our preferences about the details of an immigration reform bill,” Buffett, Adelson and Gates wrote in the New York Times. “But we could without doubt come together to draft a bill acceptable to each of us. We hope that fact holds a lesson: You don’t have

Comments:
Ain´t this grand as they sit in their ivory tower while the rest of us suffer. Obama is actually considering granting amnesty via executive order to upwards of five million more illegal aliens?? Are you freaking kidding me?? I really can´t take much more of this.

I honestly thought the next civil war would be over moral issues.

But, clearly, national sovereignty is what the next civil war will be fought over.

And I´m guessing that is coming sooner than later...

I can´t take much more of this, either, OP. In fact, I was just thinking, sod it for now, I´m off to the garage to finish sweeping up and then I´m going to mop the floor. I may end up wearing out the mop, got a lot of fear and loathing to work off.

No surprise these people want amnesty, think of all the money they can make off of these people and the government programs that will be required to support them. As government grows, so does the government/big business cartel. They will profit handsomely. Follow the money.

OK, so this illegal invasion is OK with the guys who have more money than God and our fraudulent leader will make it happen with the stroke of a pen. Now I see why all those government agencies have been loading up with ammunition. Is there any honesty left in Washington, any honor, any respect for our laws? We are in the handbag and on our way to Hell.

As a Texan, I see my state changing permanently as we sit here and discuss the issue. It´s been going on slowly for decades but these new thousands in a never ending stream is a whole nuther kettle of fish. I think because our state is experiencing a boom economy, we tend to say, oh well, more good happening than bad. Dangerous. Every night when we go to bed I think, how many are sneaking through into my state tonight? Terrorists, murderers, rapists and at the other end, others who KNOW that unlimited taxpayer generosity and goodies await them.

What do you call a form of government run by four people?

Let´s see. Three uber zillionaires agree with each other so they draw up a bill and Hussein the king of America declares it LAW by executive decree and the people (folks) WILL comply or be sent to detention camps?

Congress is dissolved (irrelevant anyway) and SCOTUS also (no need to interpret any laws as there is no law that can be challenged) so......... I can´t finish this, I´m going to go throw up.....

Okay: fear minimized, loathing maximized.

See this shocking piece on Bill Gates and H-1Bs by the Programmers Guild: programmersguild.org/docs/bill_gates_lies_about_h1b_wages.html

Yep, he´s still doing it: see 2013 CNN piece: http://tinyurl.com/qjgv9hs

Microsoft is among the strongest supporters of H-1B visas for high tech workers. See NPR report re MS: http://tinyurl.com/d6waj7x

Above report also describes what son of Indian immigrants does:

For the past decade, he´s been studying how consulting firms use temporary work visas to help American companies cut costs. He says they use the visas to supply cheaper workers here, but also to smooth the transfer of American jobs to information-technology centers overseas.

"What these firms have done is exploit the loopholes in the H-1B program to bring in on-site workers to learn the jobs [of] the Americans to then ship it back offshore," he says. "And also to bring in on-site workers who are cheaper on the H-1B and undercut American workers right here."


Says biggest user of H-1Bs in 2012 was Cognizant. Very informative piece--please do read.

Mercury News reports companies supporting H-1Bs include, ". . . Yahoo, Cisco Systems, NetApp, Hewlett-Packard and other Bay Area companies," at: http://tinyurl.com/np4mx44

Why on earth do these billionaires want to kill off American workers? Why do they pose as philanthropists, giving away substantial amounts of money to "help" people, when they´re really stabbing us multiple times in the back--and front and side and anywhere else they can reach.

We have no place to go to escape these people.

"It´s not that I´m paranoid, it´s just that they´re against us." One of my favorite humorous remarks.

It´s not funny any more.

One necessary condition for being a political leftist is a guilty, destructive conscience, and there´s no guilt greater than in a billionaire who benefitted ten thousandfold more than his efforts probably deserved. Instead of getting down on his knees and thanking the Lord for his good fortune, his first impulse is to try to impress everyone, not merely with his own munificence, but in calling for everyone else to dig deep and do something cosmically stupid. Come what may, he will always be comfortable. The rest of us proles can fend for ourselves. Adelson, Buffett, and Gates can go straight to hell.

Let the billionaires provide the $3.7 billion Zippy wants and let their foundations pay cradle to grave care for illegals. No ?

Those living in the bubble haven´t a clue.
They don´t even care that you are an American trying to make ends meet because of this economy.

John Kerry chose the third anniversary of U.S. citizen Amir Hekmati’s "detention on false espionage charges" during a visit with his family in Iran in 2011 to "respectfully" call on the government of Iran to release Hekmati and several other U.S. citizens held or missing in that country. Saeed Abedini and Jason Rezaian, the latter a Washington Post reporter, are also being held.

At a Democratic National Committee fundraiser in New York Friday, President Obama attributed people´s pervasive sense the world is falling apart to “social media.” “The world’s always been messy… we’re just noticing now in part because of social media,” Obama said. “I can see why a lot of folks are troubled,” he said. But American military superiority has never been greater, he added, according to a pool report. Obama has faced withering criticism for taking a lengthy vacation that included nine rounds of golf, while terrorist group Islamic State (ISIS) has been on the march in Iraq, an Ebola crisis

The Los Angeles Times is reporting that President Obama may postpone his sweeping executive actions on immigration until after the midterm elections. Why? Because Democrats are begging him to: The two-step plan would bow to the concerns of Democratic lawmakers running in Republican-leaning states who have expressed opposition to Obama’s plans to act unilaterally on the hot-button issue. Some Democratic senators have said he should wait for Congress to pass legislation. Wait. Why would they want to do that? Aren’t the policies Obama is proposing on immigration wildly popular? That’s what they keep telling us, anyway. “I promise you, the American people

“Oops.” In the wake of criticism over a two-game suspension for Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice, the NFL has established a six-game unpaid ban for personnel who violate the league’s policy on domestic violence, Commissioner Roger Goodell said Thursday. A second incident would be punished by a lifetime ban from the league, Goodell said in a letter and memo to the owners of the league’s 32 teams. Without referring to Rice by name, he acknowledged in his letter that he made the wrong decision in that case. “I didn’t get it right. Simply put, we have to do better. And we will,” he

Sometimes voter-fraud deniers are forced to discuss the truth of voter fraud. This happened today at the Washington Post (“Fairfax officials say some people may have crossed Va.-Md. line to vote twice in 2012“). While the Post deserves credit from emerging from its cocoon of voter-fraud denial, it deserves scorn for bungling the emergence. Reporter Susan Svrluga notes that “tens of thousands of voters” were registered to cast ballots in both Virginia and Maryland. That’s true, and it is a big problem nationwide. Hundreds of thousands of people are registered to vote in multiple states, and many of them have voted. It

Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell’s campaign manager, Jesse Benton, is resigning from the campaign. Benton, who previously held high-level roles in Ron Paul and Rand Paul’s campaigns, confirmed his resignation Friday evening, explaining that he is stepping down after his name surfaced in news reports about a scandal involving the 2012 presidential campaign. Earlier this week, a former Iowa state senator pleaded guilty to charges related to receiving money from the Ron Paul presidential campaign in return for his endorsement.

And I frankly never plan on becoming a politician. It doesn’t mean that I won’t do something in public office, but I won’t be a politician in the process.” Carson made the comments Friday afternoon in Dallas at Americans for Prosperity’s Defending the American Dream Summit.

The latest Gallup poll on President Obama job performance is out. At the top line, things could be worse for the president and his party. 44 percent approve of his performance, while 53 percent disapprove. That’s considerably worse than in the run-up to the 2010 election, and certainly cause for concern among Democrats. But Dems won’t be surprised by this split which, as I said, could be worse. The intensity numbers, however, are terrible for Obama and the Dems. 39 percent of Americans (essentially 2 in 5) say they strongly disapprove of the president’s performance. Only 17 percent say they strongly approve.

Because I am a black conservative, someone wrote asking me this great question. “What is it that compels some black men and women to cling to, and follow people like Sharpton, Jackson, Wright, Obama, Spike Lee, Black Panthers, Holder, etc.?” I have pondered the same question. Some black folks embrace victim status because it provides cover for their laziness and irresponsible lifestyles. Black Judases preach a false, evil gospel of victimhood-ism for profit.

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) study is now in its fourth year, receiving an additional $670,567 for fiscal year 2014. The project seeks to determine why “nearly three-quarters of adult lesbians overweight or obese,” and why gay males are not.

Between 1970 and 1990, the population of Philadelphia shrank by a quarter, dropping from 1.95 to 1.59 million. Like many American cities, it seemed caught in a downward spiral. Since then – like many American cities – Philadelphia has stabilized. The population now appears to have bottomed out at the millennium, and has been regaining residents over the past decade. But as it rebounds, Philly is becoming a different kind of city. In the two most recent decades, which comprise the bounce of the city’s population curve, owner-occupied housing dropped even more steeply than in the ’70s and ’80s. Between 2000 and
