House readies bill to stop Obama´s
immigration order -- in advance

Washington Examiner [DC], by Byron York

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 7/31/2014 5:00:10 AM

On what could be the last lawmaking session before the summer recess, both House and Senate are preparing bills to one-up each other on immigration. First, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said that if the House passes a border crisis bill, he and Senate Democrats might attach the Gang of Eight comprehensive immigration reform bill to it -- a move that would clearly doom the whole border emergency spending effort. Now, House Republican leaders have written a bill that would stop President Obama from using executive power to legalize millions of currently illegal immigrants -- something Obama is widely thought

#1 somehow I think you´r right. The Republicans will once again miss the mark and end up helping obama and the Democrats like Ann Coulter wrote. I just have no faith that the elite GOP and Rinos really want to stop obama or illegal immigration. Why the Republicans are for amnesty and wanting to bring in millions more to millions already here is beyond me.

Literally the bottom line of the article: "The bottom line is that both houses of Congress may take action Thursday, but nothing will be done." The story of Congress. Meanwhile King Hussein´s wrecking ball tears away at American Liberty.

The Republicans support amnesty because they are sick and tired of being held accountable to the taxpayer. They want a way to have their taxpayer funded cake and eat it too so they have thrown in with the democrats on this issue all the while putting on a show for the people who put them in office. Don´t be fooled. Very few Republican politicians are against Obama´s amnesty. They are quietly supportive and know they will benefit from it. The democrats will see to it.

It is really quite simple. The democrats want the political power that amnesty will provide them and the Republicans just want to keep their place at the trough which democrats will aid and abet with their election shenanigans. Both parties have sold their souls for different reasons but ultimately it ends with amnesty for millions and a kick in the teeth for taxpayers. Until the money dries up, this will never change. The country has come full circle. We have taxation without representation by a tyrannical government whose power and greed knows no bounds.

They can´t stop him and their fruitless legislation is nothing but a phony charade. They can never get it through the senate and he certainly won´t sign it. This entire government is a cheap show with no substance. Obama is in fact the new dictator and there´s nothing that can be don about it. Sad but true.

Mark Levin was reading clauses from this legislation last evening on the radio and he said they sounded like they were written by La Rasa. Everyone who sets foot over the border gets extensive due process rights with the government required to prove impossible things every step of the way. All the alien needs to do is stay and ignore all their court dates. The government can chase it tail forever and never deport the alien. The citizens meanwhile better pay all the taxes Lois Lerner ( not congress ) levies on them.

The Republicans should ensure that Americans know that there are only so many jobs in the USA. When Obama comes out and says that he is"helping people" by granting a de-facto amnesty to millions of illegal aliens, an action that will give them complete access to the legal USA labor market able to compete against American workers for almost all jobs, that Obama is also hurting American workers by flooding the legal US labor market with cheap foreign labor. With millions of illegal aliens coming into the US labor market, the labor market laws of supply and demand are sure to be the catalyst for stagnating wage rates in all industries where those foreign workers can be hired, and will adversely affect American workers who are always trying to maintain their customary US standard or living. The situation will be more exasperated by new illegal aliens coming into the USA to fill all the very low paying jobs and under the table jobs that the current illegal alien population will abandon as they attempt to move up the labor market food chain.

Somehow I get the feeling that we, as a country, are heading down the same path the French were on in the 1790´s. And the result was the French revolution. I´m referring to the fact that the country is heading for bankruptcy and what wealth there will be left will be in the hands of a few who rule, not govern, the rest of us. And the French revolution was the result. And it became a country wide very bloody riot. And while I fully support another American revolution, I don´t want it to decay into what happened during the French revolution. What I want is to rid ourselves the entire government as we know it, make necessary changes in the Constitution to prevent it from happening again, and get on with our lives as free men and women.

And I´m always stuck by something written by Sir William Blackstone:

"The whole should protect all its parts, and that every part should pay obedience
to the will of the whole; or, in other words, that the community should guard the
rights of each individual member, and that (in return for this protection) each individual
should submit to the laws of the community; without which submission of all it was
impossible that protection could be certainly extended to any."

How is it that Congress never learns ? They recess knowing full well Zippy is staying in DC after they leave for the same reason every year.

Who will he appoint while they are gone ? What will he sign with his pen ?

Next week African leaders from 54 nations are arriving, not to have a family reunion with the Wookie, but for Zippy to give them millions.

U.S. military engagement on Islamic State may alter the political calculus for this year’s midterms, but the potential impacts may reach beyond the next few months and into 2016, thanks to a shift among tea party supporters. In September 2013, 64% of tea party supporters said they believed taking military action against “the Syrian government” was not in the national interest. In this latest survey, 68% of tea party supporters said they believe talking military action against “ISIS in Iraq and Syria” is in the national interest. That shift is much bigger than the change among the county as a whole. In 2013, 47% of Americans said they

There is an old story, probably apocryphal, about a meeting of the Southern Historical Society in the years after the Civil War. The topic was Gettysburg — what mistakes, large or small, did the Confederates make that led to the Southern defeat? The debate was heated and furious. Tempers were at the boiling point. Finally, one of the participants turned to George Pickett of “Pickett’s Charge” fame. “George,” he said, “you were there. Why did we lose the battle?” to which Pickett replied, “I always thought the Yankees had something to do with it.” This anecdote reflects a historiographical debate about the Civil War in general.

Senate Democrats who are anxious about their re-election prospects in November are puzzled that Sen. Thomas R.

His Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee will hold a hearing Monday on his bill to add two members to the Senate and a voting member of to the House. It’s understandable that the Democrats want to add to their membership, since the District, the Valhalla of the bureaucracy, will be in Democratic hands approximately forever. But Vincent C.

By now, the video’s gone viral: Sen. Ted Cruz walking off the stage after being booed for speaking in support of Israel at a Washington summit dedicated to the defense of the Middle East’s persecuted Christian minorities. On just about every level, the episode is sad, especially if it’s used to sharpen divisions among people who have much to gain from coming together. In fact, the whole aim of In Defense of Christians — host of the conference where Cruz spoke — is to unite the disparate Mideast religious communities in solidarity with the Christian victims of Islamist extremism. That’s no easy task. Cruz was asked to

At a Labor Day rally in Milwaukee, President Obama turned the limelight on himself, approvingly and inaccurately. “By almost every measure,” he declared, “the American economy and the American workers are better off than when I took office.” In contrast to Mr. Obama’s self-congratulatory assertion, the Census Bureau reports that median household income in the United States, adjusted for inflation, is down by more than $2,000 since Obama’s first inauguration in January 2009. Additionally, as an indicator of the economic downturn, a sixth of the U.S. population is currently receiving food stamps, an increase in the

Austin - A dispute over Democratic gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis´ book tour intensified Thursday as her Republican opponent, Greg Abbott, accused her in a formal complaint of violating state election laws. In a filing with the Texas Ethics Commission, Abbott campaign manager Wayne Hamilton alleges that Davis, a state senator from Fort Worth, "converted political contributions to her personal use" in violation of state law. The state ethics commission investigates alleged ethics violations by officeholders and candidates, and can levy fines or refer charges against violators if complaints are validated.

Sorry, Obama Fans: Reagan

Forbes, by Kyle Smith    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 9/12/2014 5:50:17 AM     Post Reply
Supporters of President Barack Obama, such as one of his campaign donors Robert Deitrick, an Ohio financial advisor often quoted in Forbes and elsewhere, insist that the Obama economy has been much more robust than Ronald Reagan’s. Are they right? Let’s look at some numbers. President Reagan entered office in a period of high inflation which was stamped out by high interest rates that in turn led to the 1982 recession. His job-creation record after that may fairly be termed outstanding: nearly 20 million more Americans were employed when he left office than when the recession ended. Overall, including the recession

Ticking them off in a breakfast with reporters sponsored by the Christian Science Monitor, Mr. Portman identified these areas of “common ground:” 1. The Keystone XL pipeline. Support for the pipeline has been growing among red-state Democrats and when a nonbinding measure endorsing the project came to a vote in March 2013, the vote was 62-37 with 27

Much has changed in the thirteen years since America was attacked. At least one thing has remained constant: the stupidity and futility of 9/11 truthers. The truthers don’t believe men with ties to an Islamist terror group hijacked airplanes and flew them into the twin towers or the Pentagon. In some cases, they don’t believe planes hit these buildings at all. At minimum, they maintain the government orchestrated or at least permitted the attacks. Writing about such bizarre conspiracy theorists may seem like an easy lay-up for a columnist, much like denouncing child molesters or praising puppies. Is it really worth it to

Qua speech, Barack Obama’s address Wednesday on the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria was surprisingly terrible: a disorganized mess, insincere and unconvincing. To appreciate just how bad and bizarre it was, compare the president’s speech announcing a new air campaign in Iraq and Syria to Dwight Eisenhower’s 1958 statement on his decision to intervene in Lebanon with 14,000—14,000!—troops. The statement contains no chest-thumping about America’s leadership in science and medicine. No pivot to the auto industry and medical research. Eisenhower simply explained what had been done, and why.

President Obama in his ISIS speech did his best to convince the American people that things are under control, that he will pursue a coalition with other nations to degrade and ultimately destroy ISIS and that he will do it only through air strikes.

Throughout his presidency, President Obama has emphasized one point while talking about Islamist extremists: They are not practicing Islam, he has said, they are perverting it. He took that a step further Wednesday night. While announcing that he´s expanding the campaign against the Islamic State extremist group into Syria, Obama said flatly that this group, which is trying to install a caliphate in the Middle East, "is not Islamic." He didn´t say they are perverting their religion; he said they´re not even part of that religion.

Body odour is among 52 criteria that officials at San Diego International Airport use to judge taxi drivers. Cabbies say that smacks of prejudice and discrimination. It does discriminate between cabbies who smell like an open sewer and those who don’t. It further prejudges what a good smell is.
