An Immigration Trio
Power Line, by John Hinderaker

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?


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".

Who lost Iraq? In so many words, that is now the increasingly potent counter to years of liberal charges that America’s problems in the world can be traced to the Bush-Cheney foreign policy — specifically the invasion of 2003.

Graphically illustrated by the beheadings of two American journalists, a British aid worker, ISIS armies causing chaos in the once-stabilized region.

When are boots on the ground not boots on the ground? When they’re in Iraq. You’d be forgiven for being confused about the role of the U.S. military in combating the Islamic State, the band of militants who’ve taken over territory in Iraq and Syria. The Obama administration has announced a plan to roll back its advances with U.S. airstrikes combined with the ground forces of local allies, specifically Kurdish and Iraqi forces. There will be no U.S. boots on the ground, President Barack Obama said, as recently as today. “I want to be clear: The American forces that have been deployed to

´Security Moms´ Are Back—and

Suddenly, it feels like 2002. Democrats got creamed in midterm elections that year because the women voters they had relied on throughout the Clinton years deserted them. In 2000, women favored Democratic congressional candidates by nine points. In 2002, that advantage disappeared entirely. The biggest reason: 9/11. In polls that year, according to Gallup, women consistently expressed more fear of terrorism that men. And that fear pushed them toward the GOP, which they trusted far more to keep the nation safe. As then-Senator Joe Biden declared after his party’s midterm shellacking, “soccer moms are security moms now.” Unfortunately for President Obama,

Coalition? What coalition? Arab would-be allies in the fight against the Islamic State say (at best): Maybe. Egypt, the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Jordan and other US-allied Arab regimes have sufficient reason to fight the jihadis that threaten their leaders’ hold on power. But they no longer trust America to lead them: We’ve let them down too many times these last five years. Qatar, on the other hand, has long supported extremists nearly as bad as ISIS (or ISIL as governments worldwide for some reason prefer). Yes, it’s recently started to at least pretend that it’s ready to expel the Muslim Brotherhood leaders and

‘CATALIST’: Obama’s Database for

The Democrats and the institutional left have a new political tool that allows them virtually to ignore moderates yet still win elections. This tool, the Catalist database, was employed in the 2012 election. That election defied conventional wisdom: Mitt Romney sought and won independent voters overwhelmingly, but still lost. If you wondered why the conventional wisdom about independents and moderates didn’t seem so wise in 2012, the answer is Catalist. Beyond winning elections, Catalist also allows the Democrats to turn the policy narrative upside down and suffer no political consequence for implementing radical policies which appeal to their base.

Election Lab puts Democrats´ chances of retaining their majority at 51 percent -- a huge change from even a few months ago when the model predicted that Republicans had a better than 80 percent chance of winning the six seats they need to take control. (Worth noting: When the model showed Republicans as overwhelming favorites, our model builders -- led by George Washington University´s John Sides -- warned that the model could and

The Obama administration is preparing to introduce major steps to phase out production of a popular chemical coolant used in refrigerators and air conditioners, citing growing evidence that the substance is contributing to the warming of the planet. The White House will announce on Tuesday a series of voluntary commitments by some of the country’s largest chemical firms and retailers to move rapidly away from R-134a and similar compounds used in nearly every office, home and automobile in the country, according to current and former U.S. officials familiar with the effort. The administration is simultaneously stepping up diplomatic efforts to

Bill Clinton never inhaled. Rush Limbaugh says he never smoked it. Marco Rubio won´t answer whether he ever did smoke pot but Sarah Palin admitted she smoked it in her youth and didn´t like it. Those pushing to have more states legalize marijuana consider this drug rather harmless, medically beneficial and liberal politicians consider this issue one that will attract voters. I don´t blame Rubio for not discussing whether he indulged n his youth or not. He is a public official with young children and carries a different responsibility than the rest of us. My own experience with marijuana was somewhat similar

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand dropped an f-bomb during an interview Monday, while trashing a loudmouth male colleague who criticized her weight. The New York Democrat said she was enraged when the politician had the gall to tell her she was too fat to win election after giving birth to her second child. “I had to just sit there and talk to him,” Gillibrand said in the interview, posted on the Huffington Post. “I switched the subject and I didn’t hear another word he said, but I wasn’t in a place where I could tell him to go f–k himself.”

Just call her a pit bull without lipstick! Sarah Palin is proving she has a sense of humor about the makeup-free photos that surfaced this week. On Monday, the 50-year-old politician was photographed by paparazzi looking fresh-faced without any cosmetics on. But instead of getting mad about the slyly snapped no-makeup shots, the former Alaska governor took to Facebook to joke about the incident. "Feel bad for the poor paparazzi hounding outside my truck this morning hoping to capture a tabloid ‘exclusive´ of me coming out of Bikram Hot Yoga. How about we take away their ‘exclusive´ and I´ll give

Bill Cosby played the devoted father and loving family man on television for years, but off camera, Mr. Nice Guy had a volatile temper, played the Hollywood big shot and was a hard-partying philanderer. With riches and success, Cosby indulged himself in illicit affairs in Las Vegas and partied with abandon in Los Angeles with celebrity swingers and Playboy bunnies at Hugh Hefner’s Playboy Mansion, while his wife Camille was ensconced in their home. Cosby´s world came crashing down when an old lover from the summer of 1975, Shawn Berkes, approached him with a child she claimed was his and
