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

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.

In response to Obama Nationalizes The 2014 Election As Democrat Candidates Cringe: There´s so much happening in the news right now that Obama declaring the 2014 elections are a referendum on his Presidency probably won´t get as much notice as it deserves. Along with his telling amnesty activists that "no force on Earth can stop us," this should figure prominently in Republican campaign ads for the rest of the season... a prospect that must have tightened a few sphincters among congressional Democrats, especially those who have been working overtime to distance themselves from Obama, or even pretend they are actively

The House made a bipartisan demand Friday that Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson conduct a comprehensive review of the Secret Service and not just a probe of how they reacted to last month’s fence jumper. House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., and the panel’s top Democrat, Elijah Cummings, D-Md., said in the letter to Johnson that a September hearing on the agency exposed “a series of dangerous security breaches,” that point to serious flaws. Issa and Cummings also called on Johnson to make public a currently classified internal report on the incident as well as

Bret Baier asked Johnson: Did you ask Secret Service Director Julia Pierson to resign? “Director Pierson offered her resignation, and I accepted it,” he told Baier. Of securing the border, Johnson said Homeland Security brings to bear a risk-based strategy, focusing resources on places where officials see migration and threats. He called it an

How to assess Eric Holder’s record and legacy as attorney general? Let’s start with what should be an obvious proposition: Holder’s policies and approach to the job were consistent with the person who appointed him — Barack Obama. Lest Republicans forget, Obama was elected and reelected to the presidency by large margins in 2008 and 2012. First, congressional accusations against Holder on the controversial “Fast and Furious” “gun walking” program have been proven factually wrong. According to a thorough review by the independent inspector general of the Department of Justice, Holder did not know about this

Former Housing and Urban Development loan specialist Brian Thompson pleaded guilty Thursday to stealing $843,000 of taxpayer money in a wire fraud scheme. Thompson was responsible for selling properties acquired by the government after borrowers defaulted on their HUD-guaranteed mortgages. Specialists like Thompson were tasked with ensuring the sale of these properties at the best possible price to reimburse the government for taxpayer funds made to mortgage lenders for insured loans. Instead, he funneled portions of the proceeds into bank accounts he controlled, netting himself $843,000 in the process.

The Department of Homeland Security flew drones equipped with video cameras over the United States--away from border and coastal areas--for 1,726 hours from fiscal 2011 through this April, according to the Government Accountability Office. At times, the drones--or Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS)--were being used for purposes other than border or immigration enforcement. But the GAO does not have a full accounting of when and where the drones were flown, or what they were used for during the flight hours spent in “other airspace.” In a series of briefing slides provided in August to the staffs of the House and

In the first chapter that addresses the encounter, Dunham describes the "ill-fated evening of lovemaking" as awkward and hollow.

Deadly, irrational, and determined, the intruder snuck across a weakened perimeter. Eluding capture, the intruder was detained only after missteps and close calls. The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered. Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events. A mental case jumps the White House fence. He makes it to the East Room before he’s tackled by an off-duty Secret Service agent. Initial statements turn out to be misleading or false.

It’s the “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.” A New York appeals court next week will consider whether chimps should have the same rights as human beings. The extraordinary proceeding is the result of a lengthy battle by animal-rights activists who argue that animals with human qualities — including chimps — are entitled to human protections, including freedom from captivity. Steven Wise, part of the Nonhuman Rights Project, which is leading the effort, will have to convince a panel of Albany appellate judges that a chimp name Tommy is a “legal person” to get him moved from a cage

Instead, Obama just gave every Republican ad-maker in the country more fodder for negative ads linking Democratic candidates to him.

A presidential defeat isn’t an easy thing to bounce back from. And Mitt Romney did it twice. So it was understandable that after he lost the presidential race in 2012, he was adamant about closing the door to the possibility of a third campaign. But recently, speculation is whirling that Romney may not be so adamant anymore. When asked if he was running in a New York Times interview published earlier this week, Romney said : “I have nothing to add to the story. We’ve got a lot of people looking at the race,” he said. “We’ll see what happens.” That response, which

WASHINGTON — Representative Elijah E. Cummings of Maryland was at the grocery store the other day when he ran into an elderly black woman who expressed growing concern about President Obama’s safety. Why, she asked, wasn’t he being better protected by his Secret Service agents? The furor that led to this week’s resignation of the director of the Secret Service resonated deeply among blacks, outraged that those supposed to be guarding the first black president were somehow falling down on the job — and suspicious even without evidence that it may be deliberate. “It is something that is widespread in

It is the stuff that nightmares are made of, and day by day it is getting worse. The Ebola epidemic, says Dr Margaret Chan, director-general of the World Health Organisation (WHO), is now “the greatest peacetime challenge” since the Second World War. Yet her own organisation’s tardiness, partly caused by cuts, together with reductions in--and misuse of--funds elsewhere, are largely responsible for Ebola spiralling out of control. [Snip] It’s just the beginning. At present the numbers of people infected are thought to be doubling in under 30 days--and the blue-chip US Center for Disease Control and Prevention predicts that, if Ebola
