An Immigration Trio
Power Line, by John Hinderaker

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 7/29/2014 6:04:20 AM

Jeff Sessions is mounting a heroic campaign to persuade Congress to block President Obama’s apparently imminent decree legalizing, in essence, five to six million illegal immigrants by granting them work permits. The Obama administration has been lawless in many ways, but this is stark illegality even by its standards. This is what the actual law says: INA Sec. 274A– Unlawful Employment of Aliens (a) Making employment of unauthorized aliens unlawful (1) In general It is unlawful for a person or other entity— (A) to hire, or to recruit or refer for a fee, for employment in the United States an alien knowing the alien is

How many Americans, African-Americans, will not be able to find work if their Messiah Obsma unleashes 6 million illegals into the workplace? Do you get it now, Black community? Obama is NOT your friend. Never was.

I break the law - the GOP doesn´t impeach me.
I break the law again - the GOP says it has no plans to impeach me.
I break the law again - the GOP promises it will never impeach me.
I break the law again - the GOP swears to God impeachment will never even be considered, no matter what I do.

If you were the Lightbringer and this was your "opposition", what would you do?

Impeachment is the easy part.
conviction in the Senate is the real objective.
Obama wants to be impeached - as of now the SENATE will not convict.
Need a GOP Senate and several patriotic Dems for conviction.
House can cut off FUNDING NOW.

#2 is correct the GOP has taken impeachment off the table so obama can do whatever he wants without any worry about any consequences.

#3 I have no faith that even if the Republicans take the Senate much will change. I expect the House will continue to fund his excessive and often illegal spending. Obamacare will continue to be the "law of the land". McConnell has already said he would restore the filibuster first thing so control will be returned to the Democrats.

It is going to be a long two and half years with obama´s lawlessness going untouched. The elite GOP and Rinos want amnesty in order to please the Chamber of Commerce and other special interests. "We the people" are not represented in Washington D.C.in any meaningful way. We didn´t want obamacare and got it anyway. We don´t want amnesty but we´re about to get it also. We can melt the phone lines but obama will grant amnesty just like a king would. Oh well goodbye Republic and Constitution.

There needs to be a national discussion of what "impeachment" really means! It is bringing charges, not a trial, much less removal from office. How many times do police arrest someone, but then release, due to lack of evidence. How many times are people charged, tried, but acquitted and released....think O.J. Simpson. When you think impeachment...think the O.J. trial.

There are many of you good conservatives out there who can´t get impeachment off of their minds...unless there are some under cover agents in the mix.

Again, short and sweet the Republicans can´t begin impeachment precedings without control of the senate and if you don´t understand that fact...goggle the impeachment process. They are suing Obama for making law, which will stir the pot and be right in time for this years elections.

Obe would give up his coming 16 day vacation and stay at Camp David, if the Republicans were daft enough to try it. I am not saying our representative shouldn´t be jumping up and down...raising hell and taking names but it should be about the immigration fiasco that Obie is presently about to give 5 million amnesty. We need to get off our dead rears and call our Congressmen on this immediate issue that we can do something about.

It needs to be pointed out that many of Obama´s EO´s are now to do what Congress has already denied him. Libs need to be reminded that no matter how they spin it, EO´s can easily be repealed, even citizenship. An on-line lib recently flaunted Obama´s EO "ENDA" in a debate but went silent when reminded of the temporary aspects of EO´s.

If Obama had a brain he could build a consensus with Congress, perhaps could get his cherry picked segments of society a permanent law, not some temporary measure.

With respect, #9, you´re in error on the law. The House does not require involvement of the Senate to impeach a president.

The process outlined in the Constitution is:

1. The Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee proposes a committee inquiry.

2. The Judiciary Committee votes on sending articles of impeachment to the full House.

3. The House, under rules established by the House Rules Committee, votes in favor of impeachment.

4. Only then, having received from the House articles of impeachment, does the Senate become involved, as it convenes a trial.

#12. Yes the House can impeach, but only the Senate can remove him from office.
With 2 years left, it´s not worth the bother.
The msm will see that the dem base is angry and fired up in November.
Be patient, and I promise O will get his just desserts...For now, we need to pick up seats in the Senate and get Harry Reid out of the Leadership.

Impeachment, unless supported by at least a majority of Democrats, will at this point only serve to add the halo of martyrdom to B. 0., sad to say. Perhaps the Republicans need to start calling out Democrats, by name, goading them to explain their support of Zippy´s lawlessness. How far will they let him go? What other laws are they willing to let him bypass? Someone needs to start this drumbeat.

Re this impeachment debate, how many times have there been votes in congress made or in the case of Reid blocked because members wanted to force others to be on the record, or spare them from being on the record, for the vote topic? How many times are measures passed or rejected by one vote when it would have passed or failed by a wide margin if members could keep their vote secret? In these cases the no vote is passed around to the members considered most vulnerable in the next election. These machinations happen all the time and it is good to force votes on things even when the outcome is certain to put lying members on the record. RATS do it all the time! If you add the vulnerable RATS to the GOP on an impeachment vote Barry would squeak by with only one vote - or if the anger was at a high pitch perhaps even get removed from office!

Zippy would love it if the House Republicans were to begin debating the viability of impeachment proceedings. It would galvanize the progressive base, shake loose tens of millions of dollars in contributions, and prompt a "get out the vote" campaign to help the dems retain their Senate majority this November.

Defunding is only possible with a GOP Senate as that is the only way a budget will pass. Then the budget goes to Obama who will try to blame the GOP if he vetoes the budget. The press will support him in this but if the GOP uses its microphone it should be able to lay blame on the President.

Must remember that most of the American people are UNINFORMED.

The word "impeachment" would blast from the headlines, accompanied by the standard, predictable anti-Republican vitriol.

Do we need this **distraction** now? No. And no I don´t think the Constitutional provision of Impeachment is a distraction in itself... however, it would be seen as such by the Useful Idiots who (unfortunately) vote.

They don´t even know what is happening at the borders. If they "know" anything it´s the images of children (Lefties have honed the skill of using children for their political goals, ex.: Palestinian "victims" in Gaza; the refrain "it´s for the children").

Phase One for congressmen must be to educate their constituencies... fast. The "mainstream" media won´t. Congressmen have this imperative. Will they see it? Honestly, I fear not. We must continue to do our part.

But there are more and more out here who ARE informed, more are waking up. Time is running out. Keep focused. Keep our eyes on the goal of restoring the dominance of The Constitution.

President George Washington said that "the protectors of The Constitution are The People."

That´s us.

Let your congressmen hear from you, tell them to uphold our Laws and Defend and Protect our Constitution. Call and thank Senator Sessions and the others who love our Republic and have the courage to fight for it.

The case would have to be made for Impeachment, and again, most Americans are engrossed in their frivolities.

There´s work to do.

This administration is "fundamentally changing" the country by fundamentally changing who lives here... Functionally illiterate laborers are welcome, who will vote for lifetime benefits our grandchildren will pay for, brought to you by our socialistic dems in Congress, and RINOS who want to keep their jobs. Disgusting. A la Jefferson, a revolution is not a bad thing every now and then, and this feckless, worthless, not-that-smart narcissistic piece de merde needs to go back to the rock he crawled out from under.

(2) When did we vote for New Transformed America?

ANSWER: Never. In fact, we have been systematically lied to, misled and deceived by political and media elites acting in bad faith who want unlimited immigration.


See, now this really torques my jaws. That´s BS. EVERY single bit of what Obama IS doing was known in 2007 because of who raised him, taught him, mentored him, preached to him and paid him. It was REAL easy to know it; why even a dumb potter like myself screamed it at the top of his lungs in early 2008 only to be called a racist, and extremist along with famous conservatives like Beck and Savage. And who did the name cslling and denegrating? The left? NO. The freakin´ Weekly Standard and the elitist GOP THAT´s who. So, you bet your sweet behind NO ONE was lied to.

Now, onto what I saw on my way home. driving by the Ritz Carlton downtown Dallas, I passed a bus unloading about a hundred Hispanic 11-13 year old´s waiting to check into the many hundred dollar per night luxury hotel. Yep, people on McKinney across from the Ritz were outraged taking pictures with their cellphones as I drove by.

And while the Marxists laugh at you and I they know absolutely NOTHING but blog posts will be done about it and NOTHING will stop them short of armed revolt and they KNOW it. Sadly, so do you all but you´re terrified to admit it. Jeff Sessions and the House GOP? Seriously? Please. We deserve this because MOST voters asked for exactly what´s happening. They´re stupid and don´t need to be lied to.

The hand-wringing continues. What will the press say? "The word "impeachment" would blast from the headlines, accompanied by the standard, predictable anti-Republican vitriol."

Meanwhile, we do nothing. Boehner´s lawsuit will go nowhere. Even if a successful ruling is obtained, it will be ignored. If funds are withheld, the Emperor will find a way to get around it. It´s amazing the "flexibility" a POTUS has if he doesn´t care about the law or the Constitution.

We are told to just elect a GOP Senate, and then we might try something. Better yet, wait until 2016.

Baloney. If the Pubs win the House and Senate this fall, what specifically will they do about this? What specifically will they do if they take the WH in 2016?

(crickets)

Everything McConnell has said indicates that as Majority Leader he will continue to do - nothing. By 2016, it may be too late.

As Brig. General Anthony C. McAuliffe would say: "Aw, Nuts!"

"Screw" the press. Just do the right thing and "damn the torpedoes".

PRINCETON, NJ -- Registered voters are more likely to view their choice of candidate in this year´s midterm elections as a message of opposition (32%) rather than support (20%) for President Barack Obama. That 12-percentage-point margin is similar to what Gallup measured for Obama in 2010 and George W. Bush in 2006, years in which their parties performed poorly in the midterm elections.(Snip for graph) Gallup first asked this question in 1998, the year Republicans were moving toward impeaching President Bill Clinton for lying about his affair with a White House intern. That year, when Clinton´s approval rating was 63%,

ATLANTA — Texas, America’s second-most populous state behind California, saw 13 of its last abortion clinics turn away women on Friday, after a federal appeals court upheld a law that practically guarantees that only a handful of clinics will remain open in the state. The strictest-of-its-kind Texas law requires abortion providers to build hospital-grade facilities and obtain sometimes impossible-to-get hospital admitting privileges. After signed into law last year by Gov. Rick Perry (R), the law forced most of the 41 clinics operating to close. Thursday’s ruling wiped out a brief victory this summer for abortion rights proponents,

The president promises to lawlessly amnesty millions of illegal aliens on his own say-so, enabling them to get work cards, Social Security numbers, driver’s licenses, EITC, foreign travel documents, and the rest. But there are executive powers that he really does possess that he’s not using. Senator Sessions has helpfully provided a number of “lawful, constitutional executive actions” that the president should already be undertaking but isn’t: Complete the border fence that Congress has previously passed into law; Create the exit-entry system to track foreign visa-holders, which Congress has repeatedly mandated; Cancel visas

With Ebola making its way to the United States, people are rushing to find more information on the deadly disease. The Centers for Disease Control released a new chart on how contagious Ebola is compared to other diseases. The results may surprise you, according to IJReview. What you’re seeing is an evaluation of how contagious the Ebola virus actually is compared to previous epidemics, namely: Hepatitis C, HIV, SARS, Mumps, and Measles. As Michaeleen Doucleff reported, these little icons of pink and red people reflect the disease’s relative R0 or R(nought) scores. The red person is the disease carrier, and the pink people

Commencement speeches can be amusing, inspiring or, in the worst (some would say even the best) case, a bit dull. Schools tend to choose corporate CEOs, politicians and celebrities to send off the graduating class with a speech meant to give graduates a glimpse of what they can achieve if they work hard in the years that lie before them. Goddard College, a small liberal arts school in Plainfield, Vt., wanted a different kind of speaker. The graduating class chose a cop killer.

The U.S. economy added 248,000 jobs in September, and the unemployment rate dropped to 5.9 percent. But the labor force participation rate continued to fall, average hourly earnings seem frozen, and over 13 percent of workers are either out of work, involuntarily working part time or too discouraged to keep hunting for jobs, and 20 percent of teenagers are out of work. In short, two cheers for the latest report, but hold the champagne.

It’s called dereliction of duty when one knowingly dismisses the faithful execution of his or her prescribed duties in fulfilling their responsibility. I said so Monday evening with Greta von Susteren, and will continue to do so. And if anything represents “high crimes and misdemeanors” it’s the dereliction of duty that has resulted in the deaths of Americans – by beheadings.

Despite the numerous indications that Yisrael was inspired to choose his manner of murder and to carry it out by his immersion in Islam, authorities profess to be puzzled as to why he did it, or at least certain that his actions had nothing to do with that most misunderstood of religions, Islam.

Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events.

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

Meghan McCain joined the dog pile on the Secret Service this week, saying she’s had “nothing but horrible experiences" with the agency and likening the agents to “glorified mall cops.” The 29-year-old author and television personality, who is also the daughter of former GOP presidential candidate Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), opened up on Pivot’s “TakePart Live” about some of her interactions with the Secret Service. "I have nothing but horrible experiences with the Secret Service,” McCain said. “One of my friends called them glorified mall cops and I don´t think that´s terribly far off. I found them cliquey. I hated

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

Go to a grocery store in California and buy all the milk, eggs and vegetables you want. But there’s one thing you won’t find at the checkout line, beginning July 1, 2015: Plastic bags to carry your stuff home. Gov. Jerry Brown (D) on Tuesday signed into law a ban on single-use plastic bags, making California the first state to prohibit stores from using the ubiquitous carry-alls. Shoppers will be charged 10 cents for every paper bag and heavy-duty plastic bag they use. “This bill is a step in the right direction,” Brown said in a press release announcing his approval. “It

The hawkish Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina says he is thinking about running for president in 2016. In an interview with Stephen Hayes of the Weekly Standard, the senator, running for re-election to the Senate this year, said: “If I get through my general election, if nobody steps up in the presidential mix, if nobody’s out there talking — me and McCain have been talking — I may just jump in to get to make these arguments,” Graham said. Graham, 59, also dismissed Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, 43, as a presidential candidate, saying he is too young. “He’s a good

ATLANTA — Texas, America’s second-most populous state behind California, saw 13 of its last abortion clinics turn away women on Friday, after a federal appeals court upheld a law that practically guarantees that only a handful of clinics will remain open in the state. The strictest-of-its-kind Texas law requires abortion providers to build hospital-grade facilities and obtain sometimes impossible-to-get hospital admitting privileges. After signed into law last year by Gov. Rick Perry (R), the law forced most of the 41 clinics operating to close. Thursday’s ruling wiped out a brief victory this summer for abortion rights proponents,

Speaking at a Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors event last night, Hillary Clinton decided to talk about Alexis de Tocqueville. The problem? She got it wrong -- by about a hundred years. "There´s a wonderful phrase that was first used by Alexis de Tocqueville, who came to the United States in the very early 1930s and traveled around our country," said Hillary Clinton, a probable 2016 presidential candidate. "And he was so amazed at how Americans organized themselves -- you know, coming from aristocratic Europe, which was totally top-down and hierarchical -- he couldn´t believe how many of us were joiners.
