Hillary’s Dream: Open Borders!

preview-1

“My dream is a hemispheric common market, with open trade and open borders. We have to resist protectionism [and] other kinds of barriers to market access and to trade.”- Hillary Clinton

This statement by Hillary Clinton was made to a Brazilian bank, Unibanco Itau, in one of her famous speeches to the banking industry and Wall Street. Speeches that she has taken consistent steps to hide from the American people.

Can anyone imagine what the United States would look like in four years, under Hillary Clinton, with just open borders, completely ignoring the needs of the American people? How many hundreds of millions of people would flood through our borders if the United States had no concerns regarding our sovereignty?  Let’s look at the numbers currently representing our immigration system today.

  • In 2014 there were almost 60 million refugees and internally displaced people (IDPs) around the globe. Put another way, that’s one in every 122 people worldwide. Put yet another way, that’s roughly the equivalent of the entire population of Italy being pushed out of their homes.
  • Estimated number of illegals  residing within the US today range between 11.4 – 40 million.
  •  In 2014 alone,  there were 181 million  non-immigrant admissions (primarily tourists, business travelers, and international students).
  • The Diversity Visa Lottery admits 55,000 people annually.
  • In 2014, 1,016,518 foreign nationals became lawful permanent residents (LPRs), also known as green-card holders, according to DHS data.
  • Each year, the USCIS receives and processes about 6 million immigration applications from individuals and employers.
  • One immigration expert estimated the USCIS will receive at least 160,000 applications in 2014 for the 85,000 available H-1B visas.

The Migration Policy Institute says the Affordable Care Act, Obamacare, has increased health insurance coverage of immigrants, especially noncitizens, at a greater rate than the U.S. born population.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates the number of people unemployed in the U.S in 2016 is 7.9 million.  Americans forced into part-time work, for lack of full-time jobs, hits 5.9 million. The labor participation rate is at the lowest since World War II.

Currently teachers throughout the U.S. are experiencing overcrowding in their classrooms, averaging 40 children per class. As stated in an article by Teach Hub.com, “Classroom Overcrowding: Not Just a Numbers Game,” says:

“Where we used to lack space, now we now lack seats within rooms. Kids sit on counters, on the floors, wherever they can find a space. Teachers struggle to be heard above the din of 40 plus kids, and kids struggle to hear the teacher and keep up with instruction. While we’re racing to the top and leaving no child behind, we’re burying them.” 

According to a report (“Estimated Cost of K-12 Public Education for Unaccompanied Alien Children”) from the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) that came out in August, 2014.

“The total estimated cost of educating illegal alien minors during the upcoming school year for all states and the District of Columbia is $761,405,907. New York topping the list with $147,731,339, Texas with $77,655,584, California with $63,908,143, Maryland with $67,937,602, New Jersey with $57,698,181, Florida with $56,773,589, and Virginia with $54,182,412.”

Now, with just these figures alone, imagine what the United States would be like with open borders. Our education system would fall to overcrowding, our healthcare system, now failing under the Affordable Care Act would implode, our current low employment market would open to hundreds of millions of new individuals searching for jobs. Our communities and neighborhoods would be overflowing with people needing a place to live. Is this really the America you imagine? Probably not, but it is the America Hillary dreams about.

Obama Shuts Down Terrorist Investigations Calling It Racial Profiling.

shutterstock_84125155

A former employee of Homeland security is blowing the whistle on Homeland Security. He claims political correctness and the Obama Administration is preventing  Homeland Security from investigating terrorist organizations. Why would political correctness stop the investigation of potential terrorists? This administration calls it profiling and discrimination against Muslims.

In a speech after the San Bernadino attacks, President Obama made a speech citing,

“We cannot turn against one another by letting this fight be defined as a war between America and Islam….If we’re to succeed in defeating terrorism we must enlist Muslim communities as some of our strongest allies, rather than push them away through suspicion and hate….. it is the responsibility of all Americans — of every faith — to reject discrimination.  It is our responsibility to reject religious tests on who we admit into this country.  It’s our responsibility to reject proposals that Muslim Americans should somehow be treated differently.”  

These words from our President sound reasonable. However, when the same administration defies reason by shutting down terrorist investigations by Homeland Security, because he feels it profiles Muslims, then you must ask yourself whether he is acting in the true interest of the United States and it people. Has political correctness taken over common sense and trumped our safety? At what point does the personal feelings of a group of terrorists become less important than the slaughter of innocent Americans going about their daily lives.

In a recent report on the Kelly File, the facts about political correctness and its negative effects into the investigation of radical Islamic terrorism was revealed.

[Philip Haney’s job with HSA was to investigate individuals with suspected radicalized ties to terrorism. He had received a commendation letter for successfully tracking down 300 terrorists. When he noticed a trend of people with radicalized ties coming into the United States, he began looking into a collection of global networks that were infiltrating radical Islamists into the U.S. A year into the investigation, he was visited by the State Department and the Homeland Security Civil Rights Division.  They said tracking these group and individuals was problematic because they were Islamic groups and it was considered profiling. A memo was sent out denying any investigation tied to Islamic groups. As a result, his investigation was shut down.  Sixty seven of his records were deleted. Among those records were investigations into the mosque in San Bernadino which was tied to Syed Farook and Tashfeen Malik, responsible for the terrorist attacks in the same city. Haney said if his work had continued he may have been able to thwart the attack in San Bernadino.  A year ago he notified Congress and Department of Homeland Security about these issues, yet the investigation was not re-opened and the HSA retaliated by pulling him from his duties and revoking his security clearance.]

Under the Obama administration, we have seen the dismantling of intelligence in Iraq, an executive order banning CIA “enhanced interrogations” and the closing of “black Sites.  Under the Bush Administration, three suspected terrorsts were waterboarded and as a result divulged information on other terrorists responsible for  the 2002 bombings in Bali and on Al Qaeda leaders. While over 100 prisoners released from Guantanamo Bay have gone back to terrorism, President Obama is still determined to release the remaining prisoners and close Gitmo. Should the United States continue to “play by the rules” when our enemies refuse to do the same?

As all Americans have witnessed of late, President Obama has no problem working up a sweat over the gun rights of American citizens and has promised to pass, by executive order, strict gun laws bypassing Congress and our Constitutional rights. Still at the forefront is the administration’s view that Global warming is our biggest national security threat, and along with Bernie Sanders, and other Democrats actually believe that climate change is the main cause of terrorism today.

The real question is why President Obama has no problems calling out lawful gun owning Americans but still refuses to link self-professed Islamic terrorism to Islam. Now, he has gone so far as to shut down actual successful terrorist investigations because they happen to involve radical Islamic Muslims and calls it profiling. God help us all!

Why Has Immigration Become Such a Bone Of Contention And Division?

shutterstock_2657890

Back in 2007, while President Obama was busy campaigning to become the first black president of the United States, the majority of Americans were fully in support of immigration reform, and a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants. Flash forward to 2015 and you will see unbelievable levels of contempt and refusal to accept anything less than mass deportation of all illegals. Why?

When President Obama took the oath of office in January of 2009, the House and the Senate of the United States was controlled by the Democrats. Obama campaigned for the hispanic vote by making multiple promises of, not only, addressing immigration, but permanently fixing the problem. He spoke on the issue March 27, 2008 on the Larry King show.

“[We] have to recognize that we’ve got 12 million undocumented workers who are already here. Many of them living their lives alongside other Americans. Their kids are going to school. Many of the kids, in fact, were born in this country and are citizens. And so, it’s absolutely vital that we bring those families out of the shadows and that we give them the opportunity to travel a pathway to citizenship. It’s not automatic citizenship. It’s not amnesty. They would have to pay a fine. They would have to not have engaged in any criminal activity. They would have to learn English. They would have to go to the back of the line so that they did not get citizenship before those persons who had come here legally.”

However, even with a Democratic majority in the House and the Senate, President Obama did nothing to advance immigration reform. He mocked Republicans for demanding the border fence be secured,  and taunted his opposition by accusations that they would soon be demanding  moats and alligators to protect the borders. All this rhetoric while only 37 miles of the fence on the Southern border was actually secured. All this rhetoric while he stood by and did nothing to address reform in his first 2 years as President. As a result of pushing through Obamacare on Christmas eve, against the wishes of the American people, the Democrats lost their majority in the House.  As we all have seen since, without true leadership, immigration reform hit a permanent brick wall.

Instead of leading the discussion with Congress, President Obama decided to take matters into his own hands. Still promising change to the hispanic community in 2012, ensuring his reinstatement as president for another 4 years, immigration reform was once again stalled.  However, in looking at well documented time lines, most Americans were unaware of the president’s actions to ensure that the immigration laws on the books, were ignored and defied.  Obama, along with Eric Holder, of the Department of Justice, moved forward on suing any state that actually followed the rule of law on deporting illegal immigrants, including criminals. He refused to support E-verify, instead defunding the expansion of the program.  He terminated funding for the virtual fence along the border,  approved millions of dollars in tax credits  be paid to illegals immigrants, and routine border searches were stopped. President Obama drastically reduced the number of national guard at the border from thousands to 130. A 24 hour hotline was established for use by illegals while the president’s budget proposed severe cuts in funding to ICE. In 2012, the president bypassed Congress and unilaterally implemented the Dream Act, and announced the closure of nine border patrol stations, while putting into effect an aggressive campaign to recruit illegal immigrants to sign up for welfare and food stamps. In 2013, the Obama administration released thousands of illegal criminals into communities while advertising for babysitters for the surge of illegals over the border in the summer of 2014. Following the surge, millions of taxpayer dollars were spent on charter planes and buses to place un-vetted illegals into schools and communities across the United States.

Meanwhile as the economy continues to tank,  job creation at an all time low, and against the ruling of a federal judge, Obama passes out work permits to illegals like candy, sanctuary cities protect them while their own citizens are being raped and murdered, and Democrats across the country now pursue the passage of laws that allow illegal immigrants to vote in our local and national elections.

Is there any surprise that, as a result of Obama’s private war on legal immigration, that the majority of the American people are angry and demanding all immigrants be deported? This pendulum effect of emotion has been fueled from the beginning by a President who refused to lead the Congress to common sense reform and as a result has pushed the American people to drastic measures to stop the flow of taxpayer dollars, American jobs and unchecked support for those who have entered our country illegally.

The polarization and division of the American people, created and sustained by the current administration has made the problem worse, now amping up hate and discord for anyone crossing the border illegally.

Those in the hispanic community that continue to support Obama and vote for democrats ( basically and action of cutting off your own nose to spite your face) represents the truest definition of an oxymoran. Actions by President Obama and democrats produce incongruous and self-contradictory results in an issue that requires leadership,  and common sense reform.

The push for the destruction of our current immigration laws has done nothing more than create a bone of contention and division within the American people on Immigration reform.

Is This Really The Democratic Party You Signed Up For?

 

url

Recently, Debbie Wassermann Shultz, the Chair of the Democratic Committee, was asked the difference between Democrats and Socialists. She was unable to answer the question;  not once, but twice. Why? Could it be that there is no difference?  I can remember a time when any Democrat would have been insulted to be called a socialist. Now there seems to be pride associated with the label. Thousands of Democrats have turned out to support Bernie Sanders for President even though he is a self-professed socialist.

What is a socialism and why has the Democratic party aligned itself with this destructive form of government? Webster’s definition is as follows:

Socialism

noun so·cial·ism \ˈsō-shə-ˌli-zəm\: a way of organizing a society in which major industries are owned and controlled by the government rather than by individual people and companies. Any of various economic and political theories advocating collective or governmental ownership and administration of the means of production and distribution of goods. a system of society or group living in which there is no private property

Are Democrats really lobbying for the government to take complete control of  all businesses and private property?   Are private citizens really considering supporting a candidate that supports socialism for the United States?

As history has proven to us again and again, government is not capable of running a profit-making entity nor successfully choosing those businesses that will succeed. They have tried and continue to try, but have proven over and over to be unsuccessful. The Obama administration gave millions of taxpayer dollars to green companies, though loans and stimulus monies they thought could succeed. As of 2014, 32 have gone bankrupt and taxpayers have lost over $3 billion to the bad choices by government. How can we ever forget the Obamacare website which, alone, has cost taxpayers over $2 billion. A lack of government awareness and acumen has also resulted in the hacking of personal records of millions of Americans, with no end in site, yet they want to take control of all American’s healthcare information and force us into a one payer healthcare system. The embarrassing failures of  the Veterans Administration, the IRS, and other government agencies that have wasted billions of taxpayer dollars  continue to fail and still refuse to fire or reprimand those who approved, caused or encouraged the failures. Add insult to injury, the Obama administration, without any real business success or experience  has already imposed over 21,000 regulations on small business, with more promised to come in 2015.  The majority of which were imposed without the consent or notification to Congress.

Some say Democrats only want the government to care for and give a voice to women, children, the elderly, and those who are incapable of taking care of themselves. But is that who they are truly supporting today?

Let’s look at caring for those without a voice, those who are definitely our most vulnerable citizens of the United States. Babies. Democrats are now supporting the right of mothers to abort their babies up to and including nine months of gestation.  They claim that life does not begin at conception and in fact does not count until the baby is actually  born. However, in a recent interview with Steven Crowder, a political commentator, Abby Johnson, an ex-Planned Parenthood Director  explained  why she left her job and changed her opinion on abortion. She claims that one day, a new doctor wanted to use an ultrasound machine to assist him with the abortion, and asked her to assist him,

“My job with to hold the ultrasound probe on the woman’s abdomen so he could see what was going on during the abortion, and I watched a 13 week old baby fight and struggle for his life during that abortion procedure, and I knew then that I had been lied to. I knew that because of that, I had, in turn, lied to thousands of women who had come through my facility.”

We have seen multiple videos showing Planed Parenthood discussing the dismemberment and sale of aborted baby organs and body parts for profit.  Is this really giving a voice to our most vulnerable citizens? Democrats support a woman’s right to have an abortion though nine months of pregnancy but since when does the law allow anyone to take the life of another human being in order to accommodate their own lifestyle or to simply stamp out what they consider an inconvenience? Even in the light of the atrocities of Planned Parenthood dismembering and selling baby parts for profit, Democrats still refuse to stop taxpayer dollars from flowing freely to an organization steeped in illegal behavior. The Department of Justice refuses to investigate their behavior but instead have decided to investigate the company shining the light on their despicable behavior. When a vote to defund Planned Parenthood was raised in the Senate, every Democrat, except two, voted to continue forced taxpayer funding of this despicable, illegal behavior, claiming it takes healthcare away from women. However, the funding of women’s healthcare still flows freely to every other organizations offering free, and legal healthcare to women who need it.   Harry Reid and Elizabeth Warren accuse Republicans of losing their moral compass and their sanity for objecting to this horrific behavior. Who are these people and do they really  represent the new Democratic party and their new vision the United States?

What about a voice for our Veterans? These men and women have fought, sacrificed their families and their lives to give all Americans the freedoms we enjoy.  Yet the government seems incapable or unwilling to do what is necessary to fix the VA which has abused their power and wasted taxpayer money by refusing to offer the services our Veterans have earned and the lack of said services which have resulted in the deaths of hundreds of thousands of our wounded veterans. Obama and Democrats have fostered an environment within the United States that encourages disrespect and abuse of our veterans.

So who is this new Democratic party truly fighting to support?

They trust  and support Iran on its quest for Nuclear weapons while refusing to trust our own military with carrying weapons on base. even stooping so low as to charge an officer for firing his weapon while trying to  disarm a terrorist in Chattanooga.

They trust and support illegal immigrants, even to the detriment of those who have jumped through all our hoops to become legal citizens. We all know there are good and law-abiding immigrants who have come into the country illegally simply looking for a better life. But how are we to determine who is coming into the country for a better life or who is here to escape prosecution for crimes within their own country, or to sell drugs within the United States or to do us purposeful harm? We can’t. Our borders are porous and our government, under Republican and Democratic rule, have refused to secure our sovereignty. However, under the Obama administration and Democrats, our immigration laws currently on the books are not enforced, and they have threatened those who  follow the rule of law with law suits and the withdrawal of federal funds. They support sanctuary cities that protect criminal illegals who have killed innocent Americans, and continue to  offer up driver’s licenses, homes, education, healthcare and now the vote to illegals all while forcing “we the people” to pickup the tab. Now, a California city is even appointing illegals as city commissioners. Where has the common sense gone.

Democrats and the Obama administration have refused to call out ISIS as Islamic terrorism while persecuting Christians within the United States.  The government has allowed other countries to make their fortunes trading within our borders, while refusing to reciprocate. We have had our economy destroyed, our sovereignty ignored, our jobs killed, our hard-earned dollars stolen and spent against our will, and our freedoms taken. We are required to follow the rule of law all while the political elite refuse to tell the truth, spin the facts to confuse the masses, and under the auspices of security force us to forego our privacy and then force us to pick up the tab.

Is this really the future you want for the United States? Is this truly the Democratic party you signed up for?

The United States Under Obama: A Criminal Haven For Our Enemies!

shutterstock_175527044

 

President Obama and Secretary of State, John Kerry agreed and signed a deal with Iran. Although just yesterday, Iran citizens and their leader were burning the American flag and shouting death to America and death to Israel. Why would our President and Secretary of State, who are in charge of protecting the American citizens agree to such a bad deal? Because they believe,

“Iran has the right to a peaceful Nuclear program”- John Kerry

We have seen this administration literally slam the only democratic country in the Middle East, and our ally, Israel. Officials in the White House have called Netanyahu a “chickenshit,” used taxpayer dollars to oust Netanyahu out of office, and even refused to meet with him while visiting the United States.  However, while Iran screams death to America and Israel, our fearless leader signs a nuclear deal with Iran that literally sets them up to have Nuclear bombs within 5-15 years.  Nuclear bombs that could literally destroy Israel and the United States and end the very lives of our children and grandchildren.

Back on the home front, the Obama administration has refused to enforce our immigration laws and as a result, taxpayers on the hook for homes, food, education, and healthcare for all illegals and their families residing in the United States. Our school system is overcrowded, communities have exceeded budget constraints and are going broke trying to educate and pay for the millions of dollars required to house and educate illegals within our communities.  Local governments were never consulted before planes, trains and automobiles rolled into their towns releasing illegals into their communities. All under the blanket of protection of President Obama.

This administration has also released hundreds of thousands of illegal criminals back into our communities with devastating results. Thousands of Americans have been killed because of the release of these criminals. The most recent being Kate Steinle, 31 and an expectant mother was gunned down by an illegal immigrant felon who had been deported 6 times for criminal behavior. A 13 year old girl was kidnapped and sexually assaulted by an  illegal in Florida. Sabine Durden’s son Dominic was killed by a drunk driver, also an illegal alien. The families of Jamiel Shaw Jr., Don Rosenberg, Lupe Moreno, and Brenda Sparks, are just a few of the other families that have lost loved ones because of the actions of illegals in the United States.  Yet President Obama has remained silent about these deaths all while stepping up to the plate and attending funerals of criminals killed by police, hyped up by the press as white on black hate crimes.

Obama wasted no time holding a press conference claiming Treyvon Martin could have been his son before the trial had even begun in the Zimmerman case. He wasted no time in sending three White House officials to attend Michael Brown’s funeral, who was killed while trying to take a police officer’s gun after attempting to rob a convenient store. That was three more than were sent to attend former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher’s funeral last year and none were sent to the funeral for Maj. Gen. Harold Greene, the highest-ranking U.S. military officer killed in combat since the Vietnam War.  The Obama administration devoted considerable resources to the Michael Brown shooting and sent Attorney General Eric Holder to Ferguson, as well as dozens of investigators prior to any of the facts being revealed. However, the Obama administration refuses to comment or offer condolences to the family of  Kathryn Steinle, whose death was a direct result of Obama’s refusal to enforce United States deportation laws.  Although the White House claims it does not have the time to comment on all victims of crimes, Obama found ample time to meet with four convicted drug felons in order to support his release of 45 prisoners. And let us not forget the phone call he made to Sandra Fluke to make sure she was okay after negative comments were made regarding her snit fit over a Catholic University refusing to pay for her birth control.

How can any of us forget President Obama’s condescending comments about Republicans who were demanding our border be secure? President Barack Obama noted the steps taken by his administration to strengthen border security, but said Republicans in Congress were never satisfied and mocked that they will want a “higher fence” and then “a moat,” and then “alligators in the moat.”They’ll never be satisfied. And I understand that. That’s politics.”

However, if our borders were, in fact, secure, as Obama claims, how did all these convicted felons return to the United States after being deported time after time after time? Now add insult to injury, Democrats are pushing to not only give driver’s licenses to illegals but the right to vote in our local and national elections. Are the lives of American citizens really expendable in order for Democrats to gain more votes?

At what point will the President of the United States start  taking the necessary steps to protect the citizens of the United States, and our sovereignty? At what point will our Congress take the necessary steps to stop the actions of Obama while he does everything within his power to protect, support and empower our enemies?

“Democrats Push Voting Rights For Non-Citizens To Ensure Election Wins!”

imgres

President Obama in a recent interview, admitted that he would pass his agenda items by “hook or by crook.” Was he just waving the green flag to all Democrats to do whatever is necessary to win and in turn, further the liberal agenda? This seems to be the new platform for the Democrats.  If you can’t accomplish it on your own steam and through the proper channels, then lie, cheat, and steal to get it done. By “hook or by crook!”

Mayor Bill DeBlasio, Mayor of New York, has decided the only way he has a chance at gaining a second term in New York, is to allow non-citizens the ability to cast votes in New York elections.  A move that takes the voice away from “The People,” as laid out in our Constitution, and gives it to those who are here as guests in our country.  Add in a growing number of illegal voters casting fraudulent ballots at local and national elections, and the American people will no longer have a say in how we are governed.  As we look at DeBlasio’s first term in office we cannot help but remember back in 2014 when he blocked charter schools,  using space inside failed public school buildings.  He chose to support teachers unions over what was best for the kids of New York. DeBlasio also proposed a law that would end horse-drawn carriages in the city and in turn force 300 drivers from their jobs at a time when the economy was less than optimistic. Add in his termination of the “stop and frisk,” laws and his vocal condemnation of his own police force, during the Michael Brown case, prior to proper investigations and rulings by the court system, and the people of New York were less than pleased. His current odds at winning a second term are not promising. His best path to win the next election seems to be opening up the voting booths to anyone and everyone who might cast a ballot for him and the Democratic party.   We do know the majority of  non-citizens will cast their ballot for a Democrat, because of course, they will never bite the hand that feeds them.

Hillary Clinton, Democrat, who wrote her thesis in college on Saul Allinsky’s “Rules for Radicals”, has found herself in yet another pot of hot water over her “deleted” email server used during her entire tenure as Secretary of State.She has no real accomplishments as Secretary of State to speak of, except her “restart” button with Russia, which obviously didn’t work, and the chaos that has been created around the world by her and President Obama’s failed agenda.  She will use her gender as a voting tool, however, she will have to explain why the Clinton Foundation has taken millions of dollars in donations from countries that have allowed the horrible abuses of women. She says she is running on income inequality while she charges $250,000 for speeches at Universities while “demanding crudités, hummus and sliced fruit.” Despite a lifetime career in politics and constant questionable illegal activities, she has decided to throw her hat into the ring for President of the United States in 2016.

It has become a pattern that seems to have gained popularity within the Democratic party. Lie. Cheat. Steal. Deceive. Deflect. Ignore. Do whatever is necessary to keep your job, win a seat, or warp the voting process in your favor. And in the process, pass legislation that will allow all non-citizens as well as illegals to cast their ballot in the next election so they can vote for Democrats.

The bill proposed in New York that will allow non-citizens to vote in local elections that has also found its way to Washington, DC,  The Local Resident Voting Rights Amendment Act of 2015.  As reported in the weekly Standard,

“If the bill passes, it would not make D.C. the first to have allowed non-citizens to vote in local elections. Currently, half a dozen towns or jurisdictions in Maryland, including Takoma Park, allow the practice, while Chicago allows all (presumably legal) residents to vote in school board elections. In much the same vein, non-citizens in California now have the right to act as poll monitors, to practice law (even if an illegal alien), and also to serve on juries.”

Last summer the United States saw an unprecedented “rush” on our southern borders.  The Obama administration’s pattern of hindering our current deportation laws, has layed out the red carpet for illegals to freely enter into the United States.  The majority of these illegals, who crossed the border were not deported, but transported via plane and charter bus, at taxpayer’s expense, throughout communities within the country. They were then given roofs over their heads, food, healthcare, and then placed within public schools without vaccinations, putting American citizens at risk. They have been offered driver’s licenses, and the right to work within the country without fear of deportation. Illegals are now even protesting without fear of retribution demanding even more money, more rights and more services. Current reports are already predicting a repeat of another surge this coming summer. When will it stop? Never, as long as Democrats rule the roost.

What has been done by this administration since 2008 to correct the problems at the border?  Nothing. With endless open borders, and public services offered up like al a carte menus to illegals within the country as well as those looking to come in the future, the taxpayers will not only be looking to forego more hard-earned dollars, but their constitutional right to choose our leaders. Even the IRS has gotten in on the ruse by offering billions of dollars in tax credits to illegals that have never even worked.

There has recently been a growing pushback from Americans fighting the influx of foreign workers via the H1-B visa program. Companies are ousting American workers to fill  jobs with cheaper, lower level workers currently held by more expensive American workers. The Obama administration is pushing to allow nearly 100,000 spouses of foreign workers in high-tech jobs and want to further ease restrictions  making it easier to import high skilled workers from foreign countries. These policies will further hinder the job market for American citizens. President Obama and Democrats have decided to cater to anyone and everyone except Americans. It seems as though they have forgotten their place and the people they have been elected to serve.

It is time to bring back simple common sense and logic to our country. It is time to put Americans first!

I’m Mad As Hell And I’m Not Going To Take It Anymore!

 

 

iStock_000010295104_Small“The president has far exceeded his constitutional authority. … We all want to do things to stop the president from his illicit activity.” – House Speaker John Boehner

“It is time to allow this Homeland Security funding measure to come to the floor. This is our colleagues’ chance to do exactly what they led their constituents to believe they’d do: defend the rule of law, without more excuses.” – Mitch McConnell

“It’s important for people who agree with us that the president doesn’t have this ability to put illegal immigration laws in place executively.” – Louisiana Rep. Steve Scalise, the House GOP whip.

“The president chose to use an authority that he said 22 separate times he didn’t have the authority to do.” – House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy.

Each of these representatives voted today to fully fund the DHS and President Obama’s unconstitutional, illegal amnesty.  Each of them promised voters in November that they would not allow Obama to get away with passing illegal amnesty with his pen and phone.  They lied!

How many times will voters allow this to continue? When is the lying going to stop? Why are politicians allowed to use “bait and switch” and get away with it?

The Republicans that voted to pass this legislation are as bad as President Obama and need to be taken out of office.  What makes them any different from Obama?  Frankly they are worse. Why?  At least we all know Obama planned on “fundamentally changing” America. He admitted it and was voted into office anyway.  He has constantly told us over and over of his intentions. He promised to use his pen and phone to pass laws that he wants passed, regardless of the system of government our Republic demands.  At least he told the truth. They lied!

Republicans have lied and lied over and over again to their constituents. They promise to stand up to Obama’s illegal, unconstitutional executive orders, yet again and again they cave. They lied to get into office and then do exactly what Obama and Democrats tell them to do.

What are the people to do when their elected officials refuse to carry out their wishes? What should the people do when the government takes control of every aspect of our lives, against our will? What should the people do when the government of the people, by the people, for the people becomes of the government, by the government, for the government? When our voices and our votes no longer matter, what are we to do?

It is time to stand up and say enough!!! The 2016 Presidential election is around the corner. At this point, it seems our choices will once again be a  Clinton or a Bush. AGAIN!  The establishment has taken over our lives and forgotten their place.  They are elected by us, paid by us, and yet they have chosen to believe that we are their pawns to move around as they please. They do this all while stealing our hard-earned dollars, destroying the American dream, empowering illegals by forcing us to pay their way and allowing them a vote that will eventually move Americans right out of our own country!

They barely work, yet complain that there $174,000 salaries along with their ill-gotten millions through insider trading, isn’t enough to fund their multimillion dollar homes, jets and vacations, all while telling the American people that “income inequality” is our problem.  They claim we are “racists” and “bigots” all while they fuel the “divide and conquer” mentality. They point the finger of blame at each other while behind closed doors they make secret deals going against the very wishes of the American people. They take away our rights to our own property, take our jobs and give them to immigrants, refuse to seal our borders, expose us to terrorism by refusing to fight it or call it by name. They take control of our air and water and call if conservation. They tell us what we can eat and what we can drink because we don’t know any better. They take over our healthcare, charge us more, reduce the services, and require us to pick up the tab for those who don’t want to work. They take away our full-time jobs and replace them with part-time, under-employment and call it recovery. They take over our internet, saying they will protect us from the big, bad internet companies. They spy on us through our phones, our televisions, and our computers and call it protection,  they decide what news we watch by allowing one political faction to control the media, and threaten anyone who stands against them.  They use the IRS to punish any American who tries to enact change. They pledge allegiance to the United States and our flag, promise to uphold our Constitution and protect the American people, yet defy those pledges on a daily basis.

They criticize Russia because Putin has remained in control  for over 24 years, but the Clintons and the Bushes have controlled the Presidency for over 24 years and after the 2016 election, probably another 8, meaning only 2 families will have controlled our country for over 32 years.  When is it enough? When is it time to tell the establishment to go to hell?

We, the American people need to let our government know we will no longer accept the status quo! It is time to elect a President that does not represent Republicans or Democrats. It is time to rid ourselves of the two party system. It is time to elect an American who believes in the Constitution, the American Dream and the rule of law!

It is time to stop putting career politicians and lawyers into office.  No more criminals allowed in office. If you don’t pay your taxes, you’re fired! If you don’t do your job, you’re fired! If you take a bribe, you’re fired! If you lie to get elected, you’re fired!

It is time to do what our founding fathers meant for us to do. Everyday, hard-working Americans should represent our country for a short period of time, then go back to their jobs and their lives. Only then will the people’s voice be heard!  It is time for term limits, a balanced budget, and common sense.  No more Department of Education, no more Department of Human Resources, no more IRS, no more Federal Reserve Bank, no more Energy Department, no more stealing, cheating, fraud, and NO MORE LIES!!!

Obama’s Little Shop of Horrors!

181qbvgey6mtjjpg

“Feed me!  Feed me now!! Feed me all night long!  If you feed me, I can grow up big and strong.” These are lines spoken by Audrey II, in the movie, “Little Shop of Horrors.” The plant that grows bigger every time he eats and is never quite satisfied. He always wants more. It is never enough! “FEED ME!”

Obama continues to feed on America’s freedoms everyday, taking more and more, never satisfied. Most recently, the FCC passed Net Neutrality Regulations. Obama and Democrats fully supported the takeover of the Internet, demanding it become a public utility controlled by the government, regardless of opposition from the American people. The FCC is supposed to be an independent government agency, but as we are discovering, there are no boundaries honored by this administration. “FEED ME!”

In 2010,  the takeover of America’s healthcare system, leaving millions of Americans without the insurance Obama promised they could keep if they liked it. He then illegally delayed the individual mandate for 2 years, extended the deadline to enroll, gave business a waiver from the employer mandate, gave waivers allowing  “friends of the White House,” not to participate in Obamacare.  Obama then offered waivers to Congress and their staff from having to participate in the very healthcare law that has been crammed down America’s throat.”FEED ME!”

What about Obama’s EPA? They have been allowed to slowly take over  more and more property around the United States regardless of the consequences to the American people and their livelihoods. The most recent is 12 million acres in Alaska. It does not matter that the people of Alaska need the land in order to survive.  The Antiquities Act of 1906 allowed the federal government to take small parcels of land for monuments and national parks. However, the Obama administration has taken this to a whole new level, and is using the law to take over million and millions of acres of land across the United States. “FEED ME!”

Under the guise of environmentalism, the Clean Water and Clean Air Acts have enabled Obama’s EPA to take control of anyone and everyone’s land if it contains even a runoff creek, resulting in their ability to tell you what you can and can’t do with your own property.   “FEED ME!”

Under Obama’s Executive Order for National Defense, the government can now seize all US resources and persons, including during peacetime, for self-declared “national defense.” It also claims power to place any American into military or “allocated” labor use.  “FEED ME!”

President Obama has made it no secret  that he will not control our borders from illegal immigration, but opens our doors to millions of illegals to enter into our country, partake in our education system, healthcare system, housing, IRS tax credits and American jobs, through his illegal Executive Order.  Taking it one step further, the taxpayer has been billed for all the services provided to illegal immigrants, but we also footing the bill for charter flights and bus service to distribute illegals into our communities. The majority of these illegals have never been vaccinated, which poses a health risk to all Americans.  “FEED ME!”

The United States Department of Education, allowing government to take over the Education system in the US, was implemented under Jimmy Carter and continues to weigh down our education system.  The Obama administration along with our Justice Department and Eric Holder sued many states to stop the use of educational vouchers,  which allows taxpayers to choose to attend  charter schools instead of their own failing public schools.  Although Obama and Democrats claim to support the education of minorities, they have sued states and demanded taxpayer choices be taken away. In recent years they have pushed common core onto the public school system, which has shown to be less than effective. The United States continues to fall in world rankings on education, failing to rank within the top 20. “FEED ME!”

Obama’s Administration has embedded itself into our banking system as well. Under Operation Choke Point, Obama and the Justice Department is forcing banks to withhold banking services to companies this administration doesn’t like, and forcing legitimate payday lenders out of business.  “FEED ME!”

What about illegal spying on Americans?  Obama has taken the NSA to a whole new level, authorizing intrusive practices of government to spy on, collect data, read emails and texts without authority of our court system which is demanded by our Constitution. “FEED ME!”

The IRS has proven itself to be untrustworthy in light of the continuing investigation into the illegal targeting of conservatives and their political views. The IRS, is another independent government agency which our constitution demands have no ties to the White House.  Yet, once again, this administration knows no boundaries. It has also been discovered that the agency has fraudulently spent millions and millions of taxpayer dollars for parties and trips.  Add insult to injury, the taxpayers are funding bonuses and salaries of  IRS employees who have refused to pay their own taxes for years.  “FEED ME!”

It appears that The Little Shop of Horrors is a cult movie based on current reality! In the original ending,  Audrey II, the man-eating plant, eats his namesake, Audrey, and Seymour her boyfriend, produce multiple offspring and eventually take over the world! In the theatrical ending, Seymour saves Audrey, electrocutes Audrey II, the man-eating plant,  marries and lives happily ever after in their dream home.

Which ending do you prefer?

“Without Obama We Would Never Know……..

 

shutterstock_203733379

If it were not for President Obama and Democrats, would you know that the Taliban is not a terrorist organization but just an “armed insurgency?”

The Taliban shot Malala Yousafzai, a 16-year-old Pakistani child advocate for girl’s education, in the face because she simply wanted an education. Then how could we forget the December attack in Pakistan where the Taliban killed 145 people, mostly children in their school uniforms.  What about the story of the 7-year-old Afghanistan boy who was hung by the Taliban simply because he had American dollars in his pocket? But the Obama administration and Democrats want to educate the American people in the facts….they are not terrorists!

If it were not for President Obama and Democrats, we would not know that trading 5 Taliban terrorists, for Bo Bergdahl, a deserter, is not negotiating with terrorists. Yet when Jordan decides to trade a female terrorist responsible for a 2005 suicide bomb attack for a Japanese war veteran held by ISIS, the White House says,

“We don’t pay ransom, we don’t give concessions to terrorist organizations.”

“We don’t get into negotiation with terrorists. We don’t pay ransom because that cash than fuels further kidnappings, which just continue to exacerbate the problem. So, we’re not going to do that.” (Fox News Sunday)

Meanwhile, it has been suggested that the Army has plans to charge Bergdahl with desertion. And one of the terrorists exchanged by Obama for Bergdahl is now a top ISIS commander.

As reported by the National Report,

“Mullah Mohammed Fazi, one of the five Guantanamo Bay detainees released by the Obama administration in exchange for Bowe Bergdahl, has been confirmed to be currently in Iraq. Fazi, the Taliban’s former Defense Minister, is serving in a leadership capacity within the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria.”

If it were not for President Obama and Democrats, would you know that ISIS/ISIL, who behead innocent men, women and children from every religious faction, while praising Allah, have nothing to do with Islam? I mean how we would ever know this if we did not have Obama and Democrats telling us so?

Let’s look at our recent and continuing economic and foreign policy lessons we continue to learn from President Obama and Democrats.  Direct from the horse’s mouth, at the recent SOTU, (State of the Union):

Obama:

“America, in 2014, had a “breakthrough year.”  “Our economy is growing and creating jobs at the fastest pace since 1999” “Our employment rate is lower that it was before the financial crisis.”

The Reality:

Unemployment is at 5.6%, yet if you added back into the mix all the Americans who have dropped out of the workforce because they have given up trying to find a job, we would be looking at an unemployment rate of 9.1%. According to the Economic Policy Institute, over 6 million Americans have quit looking for jobs that are not there.  They say,

“The unemployment rate published, (5.6%) drastically understates the weakness of job opportunities.”

But how would those unemployed Americans sitting at home, disillusioned and hopeless in rebuilding their lives because the economy still stinks, know that the economy and the job market is really GREAT, if Obama didn’t tell us this?

Obama:

“Tonight for the first time since 9/11 our combat mission in Afghanistan, [Iraq] is over….The Shadow of crisis has passed and the State of the Union is strong.”

The Reality:

According to the Huffington Post, a liberal alternative to the Drudge Report,

“Can we afford another failed state in Afghanistan?”

“In the annals of U.S. foreign policy, Afghanistan stands as a typical case where a flawed military strategy has sidelined viable political solutions.  The U.S. has had a war strategy, but no political strategy or a clear exit strategy.”

“Many of the warlords who Balkanized the country in the 1990s act as high-ranking officials and parliamentarians, ranks they have acquired through the flagrant abuse of ethnic loyalties and tribal quotas. Furthermore, some of these warlords-turned-demagogues have been implicated in crimes against humanity, but remain immune to prosecution with the tacit approval of the United States.”

And from Newsweek,

“A leading politician in Iraq has warned that unless the United States and its allies can quickly liberate the parts of Iraq under ISIS control, people there may soon learn to live with the militants. “Time, is not on our side.”

And from the The Boston Globe,

“The recent terrorist attack in Paris against the Charlie Hebdo magazine and a kosher supermarket stunned the city. For three days we watched the drama unfold; the brazen assault and massacre, the desperate search for the brothers, the subsequent standoff, and a deadly hostage situation that targeted the Jewish community. The conclusions to both crises were violent and virtually simultaneous.”

As stated in the Business Insider in July of 2014,

“The most extreme faction of Al Qaeda is winning, and it’s leading to the destruction of Iraq.”

 Obama:

“We believed we could reduce our dependence on foreign oil and protect our planet. And today, America is number one in oil and gas. America is number one in wind power. Every three weeks we bring online as much solar power as we did in all of 2008.  And thanks to lower gas prices and higher fuel standards, the typical family this year should save $750 at the pump.”

The Reality:

From the Washington Times,

“President Obama has gone to war. But not with the Islamic State group, Iran, North Korea or any foreign threat. Mr. Obama, at the urging of environmental extremists, has declared war on America’s oil and natural gas producers. His weapon of choice is a new Environmental Protection Agency regulation to cut methane emissions by up to 45 percent by 2025.”

From the Wall Street Journal,

 “The Obama administration said Tuesday it would veto legislation that would authorize the Keystone XL pipeline.”

From the Washington Examiner,

“Oil, natural gas and coal production in this country are at record levels. But this is despite Obama’s policies, not, as he implied, because of them. Oil, natural gas and coal production are zooming upwards on private land, but plummeting on government lands.”

“Immediately after taking office in 2009, Obama canceled 77 leases for oil and gas drilling in Utah. Then in January 2010, Obama issued new regulations further restricting energy development on all federal lands.”

“Obama instituted not one but two comprehensive drilling bans in the Gulf of Mexico, the first of which was declared illegal by a federal judge. After lifting his second ban, Obama refused to issue permits for any new drilling in the Gulf, which EIA estimated cut domestic offshore oil production by 13 percent that year alone.”

“Obama has leased less than half as many offshore acres as President Clinton did at the same point in his tenure. And Obama is blocking access to 19 billion barrels of oil in the Pacific and Atlantic coasts and the eastern Gulf of Mexico, another 10 billion barrels estimated in the Chukchi Sea off the Alaskan coast, and another 10 billion barrels of oil in the Arctic National Wildlife Reserve.”

“Even so, the United States is undergoing an energy revolution, making the U.S. dramatically less dependent on oil from hostile foreign nations. Increased natural gas production is making manufacturing here competitive again due to lower production costs, which in turn fuels a manufacturing employment expansion the country has not seen in decades. It’s the fruit of Americans working together voluntarily in the private sector. Think what they could do if Obama and the bureaucrats would get out-of-the-way.”

From CNN,

Solyndra, Abound Solar, Beacon Power, and Ener1, Obama’s green energy,  firms that all received money from the stimulus totaling over $1 billion dollars, have all gone bankrupt.

Obama:

“Will we allow ourselves to be sorted into factions and turned against one another–or will we recapture the sense of common purpose that has always propelled America forward?” 

The Reality:

From the National Review:

“Considered politically toxic by Bill Clinton and George W. Bush,  Al Sharpton has been enthusiastically embraced by President Obama. He has bragged about helping to pick a new attorney general and communed with the current one. In fact, a much-quoted Politico profile last summer, described Al Sharpton as Obama’s “go-to man on race.”

From Breitbart:

“President Barack Obama invited Al Sharpton to a series of White House meetings on Monday concerning the Ferguson riots, but he did not feel it was necessary to give someone from the Ferguson police department a seat at the table.” 

“Obama also met with two “youth leaders” from Ferguson. Obama later cited their stories and said that hearing “young people feeling marginalized and distrustful even after they’ve done everything right” only “violates” his “belief in what America can do.””

Meanwhile, protestors in Ferguson trashed, vandilized and destroyed over 40 business in Ferguson in protest.

A few of the many other headlines on the Ferguson riots:

  • “Elderly Man Attacked With His Own Oxygen Tank and Carjacked By Protesters.”
  • “Ferguson Rioters Attack Little Kids At Christmas tree Lighting Event.”
  • “Reporter Attacked, Robbed at Gunpoint in Ferguson; Protesters Set his Car on Fire”
  • “Pack of Teens Beat Man to Death Near Ferguson”
  • “Rioters Attack Police Car in Ferguson”
  • “Micheal Brown’s Mother to Face Robbery charges.”
  • “Fox Reporter Attacked by Masked Man in Ferguson”
  • “Officer Violently Attacked, Shot During Ferguson-Related Riot”

“Obama also met with two “youth leaders” from Ferguson. Obama later cited their stories and said that hearing “young people feeling marginalized and distrustful even after they’ve done everything right” only “violates” his “belief in what America can do.””

I guess we wouldn’t know that the Ferguson protesters did everything right if it weren’t for President Obama, Eric Holder and Al Sharpton clearing that up for us.

From The National Review:

 “President Obama said that police in Cambridge, Massachusetts, “acted stupidly” in arresting a prominent black Harvard professor last week after a confrontation at the man’s home.”

From the Huffington Post,

“Obama on Trayvon Martin Case: If I had a son he would look like Trayvon.”(regarding Ferguson, prior to investigations)

“We fund a lot of jurisdictions all across the country. And if we can identify best practices, then for us to be able to say, you need to adopt these best practices, and if you don’t, then perhaps some of the funding that’s available around some things that law enforcement cares about become less available,” Obama said.

“We’re going to provide more to folks who are doing the right thing and we’re going to be investigating folks who are not doing the right thing.”

The American people have been lied to over and over and over again by this President and members of the Democratic party. Decisions are no longer made in the best interest of the country, but in the best interest of politics. The current administration’s cabinet has been filled with Obama cheerleaders who are  determined to continue with President Obama’s agenda to “fundamentally transform the United States” into something we no longer even recognize…..A Nation that now has no morals, has shut out God and welcomed in Islam, where lying is the new truth,  part time work is now the norm, and we, the taxpayer are responsible for funding every illegal in the country to make sure they have a homes, food, education and healthcare, while we go without.  Add insult to injury,  Webster’s dictionary has to be rewritten because you are not allowed to use half the words in it for fear of offending someone!

It is time for change….

Islamic Cleric: “Islam is Not a Religion of Peace!”

imgres

 

There was a post trending on Facebook yesterday. A commentary by a British Muslim Cleric, Anjem Choudary, in the USA Today, defending the Paris terrorist attack on the publication, Charlie Hebdo.

Why would the USA Today give a voice to a Muslim cleric who thinks the Paris attack was well deserved? Why does the US press always give front page coverage to those who have done harm, intend to do harm, or support those who do harm? Can they not grasp the concept  that giving a voice to our enemies gives them the power they believe they deserve? Does the media understand that when they give our enemies a voice it allows them to draw in more support from the very people who want us dead?

In the opinion piece Choudry claimed that people “know the consequences”of speaking ill of Mohammad. He further confirmed what we, in the public, have known all along, but our leadership refuses to acknowledge, “Contrary to popular misconception, Islam does not mean peace but rather means submission to the commands of Allah alone. Therefore Muslims do not believe in the concept of freedom of expression, as their speech and actions are determined by divine revelation and not based on people’s desires.”

What is a Muslim cleric? The dictionary defines it as a “ulema,” meaning,  “Muslim scholars trained in Islam and Islamic law.”

So now, directly from the mouth of a Muslim scholar trained in Islam and Islamic law,  Choudry has confirmed that Islam is NOT a religion of peace. He  has confirmed that believers in Islam are required to do what the Quran demands they do…..protect Muhammad at any cost.  This includes the beheading and murder of all those who refuse to convert.  It means they feel justified in the murder of innocents, even children, who refuse to convert to Islam.  How can this be ignored by our leadership. How could it be stated any more clearly?  It stands in total conflict to the dialog President Obama and other world leaders continue to push to their citizens. A continued, misguided belief that puts every individual  of the world in dire danger.  It is a philosophy and ideology that, no matter how much they deny it, will eventually be the death of us all!

When a leader of the Muslim community stands up and defends the murder of innocents in the name of Islam, we all need to listen, take him at his word, and respond appropriately.  Stop the madness. Call a spade a spade and take action to stop the ideaology….the religion of hate and murder…. within our own borders.

These leads to the obvious question as to why, in times of increased terrorist activity, that the Obama administration would welcome in a record number of Muslims.  In a recent article by Investors.com it was written  that the “Center for Immigration Studies reported between 2010 and 2013, the United States has imported more people from Muslim countries than Central America and Mexico combined.”

What if a portion of the current 300,000 new Muslim immigrants, decide to follow the cleric Choudry and decide to do whatever is necessary to defend Mohammad? How many of these immigrants are reading his opinion piece in the USA Today and as a result decide to ramp up efforts to destroy the infidels? With the number of Muslim immigrants increasing every year, we could be looking at far worse results than London and Paris combined.  If these immigrants decided to band together, or even small groups decide to do what they can to further the Islamic directive, then we will be looking at car bombings, suicide bombings, and a slew of hostage taking, beheadings and just plain havoc here on U.S. soil.

Add insult to injury,  the Obama Administration is  increasing Muslim immigration visas and he has refused to enforce deportation laws.   His recent illegal amnesty does not just apply to the “dreamers,” or those who are here getting an education and wanting to become a productive part of our society.  It includes all those here illegally, including those who view us as infidels.  As a result, anyone here supporting  Islamic terrorists will now obtain documentation, driver’s licenses and work permits, and those here on visas are not tracked after their expire. They just integrate themselves into our society, overlooked and forgotten, and like the 19 terrorists who killed 3000 Americans on 9/11 are left alone to plot their revenge.

France is now suffering the consequences of their irresponsible, “politically correct” immigration policies.  The population of Muslims in France has now reached 10% of its population with over 27% supporting the Islamic State. They have radicalism spreading throughout the country creating a situation that can not be turned back.  If our leaders do not stand up and take note of the dramatic results of these “politically correct” immigration policies then we in the United States will soon be suffering the same consequences.

We ask ourselves why the Muslim population and the Muslim leaders have not taken a stand against the radical terrorist events that have been perpetrated by those within their own religion? In a conversation with a knowledgeable source regarding middle eastern relations, I was told,

“American Muslims are not standing up and screaming because they can’t. It is a philosophically impossible for them to fully reject… killing cartoonists who lampooned their Prophet because the Quran clearly states that the penalty for such things, is summary death.  The Quran is the unalterable word of God, in, evidently, God’s home language, so there is no wiggle room about interpreting it. If it’s in the book, it is true.” 

 “Islam is antithetical to Western Democracy. The idea of a Caliphate is essential to Islam. A Caliphate requires submission of religion, commerce, politics, and everything else in your life to a single ruler. There is no role for opposition. There is no role for an individual to say, “Hang on a minute, something isn’t quite right about this,” because such a statement is, by definition, heresy. And heresy is punishable by death by the people who get to define heresy.”

Since our leaders refuse to take off their rose color glasses and SEE the real threat that is facing the people of the world, it is time for the people to stand up and say enough!! Contact your representative, Democrat, Republican or Independent, and let them know we want and NEED immigration reform and border control NOW, before it is too late!

Republicans and Democrats…A Choice Between Two Evils!

VoteBoth the Congress and the Senate passed a 2015 spending bill, in record time, that has been labeled a “Cromnibus.”  But where was the fight? Where were our representatives who swore they would not fund amnesty, Obamacare, taxpayer-funded abortion, and more irresponsible spending? No where to be seen!

About Obama’s illegal amnesty,

“We are going to fight the president tooth and nail if he continues down this path. This is the wrong way to govern. This is exactly what the American people said on Election Day they didn’t want.” – John Boehner

About the passage of Obamacare,

“And look at how this bill was written,”  “Can you say it was done openly, with transparency and accountability? Without backroom deals and struck behind closed doors hidden from the people? Hell, no, you can’t.” – John Boehner

“When we came here, we each swore an oath to uphold and abide by the Constitution as representatives of the people.” “But the process here is broken. The institution is broken. And as a result, this bill is not what the American people need nor what our constituents want.” – John Boehner

These are the exact words John Boehner spoke as recently as November, 2014, in reply to President Obama’s announcement to offer amnesty to millions of  illegals inside the United States and the passage of Obamacare, both bills, openly rejected by the American people.

So how did the Republican leader decide to fight President Obama on amnesty, Obamacare, abortion and spending? By giving the Department of Health and Human Services’s unaccompanied children’s program an $80 million increase. He also offered up an additional $14 million to school districts stuggling with the influx of illegal students. Add insult to injury…he has also agreed to give an additional $260 million to the Central American countries from where the illegals are coming. Obamacare was, once again, fully funded, along with Planned Parenthood, the largest provider of taxpayer-funded abortions, and the House signed off on increasing the amount wealthy donors can throw into the political arena, increasing the current cap of $32,400 to $777,600 per person per year.  Frank Dodd regulations have been rolled back allowing banks to participate in the same derivatives trading which exacerbated the financial crisis in 2008, and the real clincher? The bill calls for more spending then what the government anticipates bringing in, resulting in yet another year of increased debt, which has now surpassed the $18 trillion mark, representing a 70% increase in our national debt since Obama took office.

I think New York Post’s Kyle Smith hit the nail on the head when he said,

“2014 was the year when the truth was optional. 2014 was the year when convenient fabrication was the weapon of choice for celebrities, activists, big business and politicians.” 

In November of this year, we had a midterm election that trumped most others. The GOP swept the country by extending their majority to near historic levels, speaking loud and clear to President Obama, “enough is enough”!!! The American people said they did not like Obamacare and were not happy about our open borders and the surge of illegals allowed to enter into our country and take part in our taxpayer-funded services. The American people are no longer interested in bailing out anyone…especially the banks that caused the financial crisis in the first place, we do not want to pay for others abortions and we want the budget balanced, and for good measure, let’s throw in term limits. But is that what the American taxpayer got?

Even President Obama jumped on the bandwagon supporting the spending bill….what could this mean? Since when has the president ever agreed with the GOP? If he is signing off on this budget deal with no fight, then the American people are obviously the losers!

Lawmakers, led hand in hand by Boehner and Reid, signed off on a 1,603 page bill that Rollcall.com said,

“If members averaged 200 words per minute to read the dense legislative text, they would need 24 hours just to get through the bill.”

Joseph Curl from the Washington Times said,

“When House Speaker John Boehner campaigned for the leadership job years ago, he vowed to give members at least 72 hours to read any bill before a vote. Back in 2010 the speaker said he didn’t think ‘having 2000 page bills on the House floor serves anyone’s best interest – not the House, not for the members and certainly not for the American people.'”

I guess the massive 2,700 page, insurance canceling, $2.6 trillion budget draining,  Obamacare, “have to pass it to see what’s in it” bill, taught them no lessons. When will our representatives start studying history and learning from past mistakes? When will they stand up for the rule of law? When will they stand up and defend our Constitution? When will they say what they mean and do what they say?

If, in fact, the president’s actions on immigration are against the Constitution and the rule of law, then why would the GOP cave in on the budget negotiations and actually allow them to be funded? Even though the money only supports the illegal amnesty until February of 2015, doesn’t the vote itself validate the president’s illegal executive action?

Senator Ted Cruz took a stand on that issue and tried to fund the government for additional days allowing the House to reconvene on Monday to further discuss the bill.  Cruz lost the support of  most Republicans and Democrats, but he did get the vote on record for anyone wanting to know who supported the funding of Obama’s amnesty without a fight. It puts all politicians on record for supporting the bills that the American people do not support.

Even Democrat, Jim Moran said.

“Democrats got virtually everything they wanted in the bill. In twenty years of being on the appropriations committee, I haven’t seen a better compromise in terms of Democratic priorities.” 

When did lies become the new truth? When did misrepresenting, misinforming, misguiding, deceiving, defrauding, misdirecting and betraying the American people become the norm? I know absolute power corrupts absolutely, but it has definitely reached a new high. Add in the press, who refuses to truthfully inform the American people as to the real actions of our government, the real state of the economy and the job market, and we have the perfect storm brewing!

Once again, in words from Boehner  in 2010,

“Around this chamber, looking upon us are the lawgivers from Moses, to Gaius, to Blackstone, to Thomas Jefferson. By our actions today, we disgrace their values. We break the ties of history in this chamber. We break our trust with America.”

As Americans, it is hard to resolve the feelings of betrayal and even harder to come to terms with an election that all our politicians felt had nothing to do with them or their actions. It is hard to reconcile that our choices at the ballot box have come down to choosing between the best of two evils. When the depth of corruption, deceit and red tape bureaucracy reach such  astronomical levels, it is time for a complete overhaul! Fire them all!!

A Politicians Real Truth Exposed!

Unknown

 

Where will the country stand after the midterm elections? Where will Virginia stand after the next election? How about Kentucky, Colorado, or a host of other states around the country?  Should we have to wait until after the midterm elections to find out exactly who we just voted into office?

I sure hope not, because we all know the outcome to “lies first” and “facts later.” Remember Nancy Pelosi’s now famous line,  “we have to vote for it to find out exactly what is in it?”   How did that turn out? Over a trillion hard-earned taxpayer dollars wasted, millions of Americans losing their policies, insurance rates through the roof and deductibles unattainable.  Millions more set to receive their cancellation letters before Christmas.  But, how did that turn out for our elected officials? They kept their Cadillac insurance plans, subsidized 75% by the taxpayer, no interruption to their daily lives, all while we scrambled around in the mud trying to regain some sense of order to the disastrous mess they made at our expense.  Should we really wait until after the midterms to find out where the United States is headed, or should we grab that bull by the horns and decide which direction is best for the American people and not our politicians?

How much better off would we be, if we could actually hold our politicians responsible for the promises they make?  What if we could throw them out of office, without any fanfare, without any questions or excuses, if we found out that they lied to their constituents? I’m not talking about small untruths, or embellishments,  I am talking about purposeful, bold-face lies that have been told to the American people, in order to further political  careers, embolden political parties and fatten wallets while selling the American people down the proverbial drain?  How many politicians would lose their jobs today, if we were to hold them accountable for the bold-face lies they told? Unfortunately for us, too many to count.

Recently, the Democratic candidate for Kentucky, Alison Grimes, was caught like a deer in the headlights lying to the people of Kentucky. She claimed she was a supporter of the coal industry and  promised to fight for them, against President Obama’s “war on coal,” if elected. Unfortunately for her and fortunately for the people of Kentucky, it was discovered that she, in fact, bold-faced lied!  A major donor to her campaign admitted,

“Grimes is faking her support of the coal industry, and will f**k em as soon as she gets elected.”(http://youtu.be/L4sn-jI12_8)

What about the promises that were made to keep our borders secure? What about the promises that were made to keep our children and our communities safe from infectious diseases?  What about the promises made to send illegals back where they came from? What about the promises made to fight terrorism? As we have discovered, on so many fronts, our politicians refuse to tell us the truth. They bold-face lie! They refuse to answer simple questions on exactly where they stand on the issues.  They refuse to answer questions regarding their actions. We are exposed to evasion, avoidance, manipulation, denial, misdirection, and the ever-present distraction. Yet, predominantly, we see our current politicians bold-face lie to the American people, and meanwhile, mainstream media remains cooperative, collaborative, collusive and completely hand in glove with the political machine. The only truths are discovered through sleuth, by everyday Americans determined to expose our so-called public servants for who they really are.  Is this starting to sound like a conspiracy?  But what do they have to gain from deceiving the American people?  Power and money….it makes the world go round!

Mark Warner, incumbent senator running in Virginia, promised he would never vote for a health insurance bill if it did not allow  you to keep your policy or doctor if  you liked them. He voted “yes” for Obamacare, and he continues to support the failing ACA bill, knowing full well Americans cannot keep their policies or their doctors.  His current ads proclaim him as a successful small business owner, who has proven that he can work across party lines to get things done. But is that true? Mark Warner is currently the second richest Senator on the Hill. His net worth is estimated at over $270 million. Did he earn that by working hard to make his small business a huge success,  or did he use insider information while working with Chris Dodd, Democrat for Connecticut, about the newly emerging wireless industry and spectrum licensing to get a jump on the rest of Virginians? Does he support amnesty? Does he really support the “right to work state,” while pushing for bills that actually support big Unions and hurt the “right to work” cause? Has he really reached across the aisle, or has he voted with President Obama 97% of the time? What is the truth?

Recently, Harry Reid’s body guard physically attacked a “non-mainstream,” reporter for simply asking how Reid could be worth over $10 million on a public servant’s salary of $194,000 a year. If you believe he made it honestly, I have some land that I want to sell you in order to build a bridge across the Colorado River that is a priority to no one but Harry Reid’s bank account.

Last, but definitely not least, It has been proven that President Obama has told countless bold-face lies, in order to be elected and re-elected.

Is this legal? Can our politicians actually bold-face lie to us and get away with it? What if the lies result in disaster for the voting public?

Recently, the Supreme Court of the United States, in a 9-0 decision determined that political ads are protected by the First Amendment. In other words, our politicians are legally allowed to lie to the American people, and mainstream media is allowed to further those lies, refusing to uphold their oath to actually inform the American people, in order to further their political agenda.  However, in the same breath, 46 Senate Democrats, lead by Harry Reid, decided that the First Amendment was actually an impediment to re-election for them. As a result they decided it would be a good idea to regulate the amount of money everyday citizens could spend advocating for the political candidates of their choice. President Obama even conceded, in an oral argument, that the law being pushed by democrats would in fact, allow the government to ban political books or pamphlets. Imagine if this law had passed. Not only would we not be able to promote our political choices, but the government would have been able to stop American citizens from printing or distributing  any publications or pamphlets promoting our beliefs, all while upholding their right to purposefully bold-face lie  to the American people. The height of hypocrisy!

So what happens when lying is upheld in our court system, and the media, owned in a 75% majority by the Liberal left, promotes these lies that eventually thwart the truth that is necessary for the informed voter to make an educated choice in the voting booth?

If truth be told, the American people are F****D!

Dig deep for the truth, and go to the poles on November 4th and say enough is enough!!!

Mark Warner; Worth Millions While Virginians Go Broke!

US-VOTE-2012-DEMOCRATIC CAMPAIGN-OBAMA

Who is Mark Warner? He has been a Senator for the state of Virginia since 2008 and is running for re-election this November for another 6 years. He has voted with President Obama 97% of his time in office. He has worked in government since the early 1980’s, and is currently the 2nd richest Senator in office with a net worth over $200 million.

How did he make his fortune?  There have been strong suggestions that while he was a staffer for then Senator, Chris Dodd, Democrat for Connecticut, he had insider information about the newly emerging wireless industry; specifically spectrum licensing. As a result, he was able to profit from his federal beneficence. Often at speaking events, Warner hears a cell phone ring and says,

“Those cell phones…most people consider them an annoyance, but I just hear cha-ching, cha-ching.”

Up until 2012, members of Congress were not subject to punishment for insider trading when it involved nonpublic information about current or upcoming congressional activity.   For example, if a lawmaker learned that a grant would be offered under a government contract to a specific company, they were free to buy stock before that company announced it to the public, resulting in large profits.

Before the cellular phone age, in the early 1980s, the federal government made a decision as to who would get the rights to send signals across the public airwaves.  This was information that the public did not have access to and that resulted in Warner amassing his fortune.

Peter Schweizer, a research fellow at Stanford University’s Hoover Institution and the president of the Government Accountability Institute,  wrote a book called,  Throw Them All Out: How Politicians and Their Friends Get Rich Off Insider Stock Tips, Land Deals and Cronyism That Would Send the Rest of Us to Prison.”   His book was released shortly after 60 minutes reported on Congress trading stock based on insider information in 2012.  As true today as in 2012, 60 minutes stated,

With the next national election less than a year away, congressman and senators are spending much of their time and energy raising the millions of dollars in campaign funds they need to hold on to a job that pays just 174,00 per year. Few of them are doing it for the salary and all of them will say they are doing it to serve the public. But there are other benefits: power prestige and the opportunity to become a Washington insider with access to information and connections that no one else has and an environment of privilege where rules that govern the rest of the country don’t always apply to them. Most former congressmen  and senators manage to leave Washington, if they ever leave Washington,  with more money in their pockets then they had when they arrived and the biggest challenge is avoiding temptation.

http://www.cbsnews.com/news/congress-trading-stock-on-inside-information/

In 2006, Representatives, Louise Slaughter and Brian Baird,  introduced the STOCK Act which would make it illegal for members of Congress to trade stock on non public information and would require Congress to report stock trades every 90 days instead of once a year.  The bill went nowhere.  When Baird got a Congressional hearing on the Stock Act, no one showed up.

The situation did not improve.  “Political Intelligence,” took over. A practice  where former Congressmen and Staffers were allowed to roam the halls of Congress gathering nonpublic information and selling it to hedge funds. This would be considered criminal in the free market system, with prison sentences for those partaking, but was used on the Hill as a profit-making industry, bringing in over $100 million a year.

In September of 2008,  Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson and the Federal Reserve Chairman, Ben Bernanke, held closed-door meetings with Congressional Leaders telling them that a global financial meltdown would happen within days. The American people were not warned, and suffered the consequences of  lost retirements and lifetime savings depleted, while our representatives on the Hill, were all able to protect their millionaire status, due to insider information.

In 2012, as a result of the 60 minutes investigation, and the embarrassment it caused many representatives such as Nancy Pelosi and John Boehner, Congress unanimously passed the STOCK Act. President Obama, with quite a bit of fanfare, signed the Act, stating,

“The powerful shouldn’t get to create one set of rules for themselves and another set of rules for everybody else. If we expect that to apply to our biggest corporations and to our most successful citizens, it certainly applies to our elected officials, especially at a time when there is a deficit of trust between this city and the rest of the country.”

However, in April of 2013, the House and the Senate unanimously voted, and President Obama quietly signed new legislation, to repeal a provision in the STOCK Act that would require 28,000 senior government officials to post all financial information online, available to the public.

The question now remains, are the American people being represented by millionaires on the Hill, who have thrown us under the bus while they continue to make millions on nonpublic insider information. Under the STOCK Act, it is illegal for our representatives and their staff to use insider information,  but who is to know without the provision requiring their trading activities be made public? Why do we continue to elect  representatives that have made their fortunes while claiming to serve the people, all while padding their bank accounts and assuming they understand the plight of the average American citizen.

As we all discovered, Congress voted not to participate in Obamacare, (Affordable Care Act) like the majority of Americans. Let’s not forget that Mark Warner provided a critical vote on December 23, 2009 to stop further in-depth  debate on Obamacare. The bill then proceeded to pass on Christmas Eve with Democrats voting unanimously to pass Obamacare, (Affordable Care Act), without even knowing what was in it. To this day, with their Cadillac Insurance plans intact, subsidized by hardworking taxpayers, only the American citizen is seeing millions of policies cancelled, rates and deductibles going through the roof, and those who cannot afford the insurance, forced to pay ever increasing fines to the Federal Government. Hundreds of thousands of illegals are allowed to partake in Obamacare at our expense while our President looks the other way. We have seen our once full time job market shift to a part time offering, workforce participation has not been this low since the 70’s, all while the government claims unemployment has fallen under 6%. Over 49% of Americans are getting some type of government, taxpayer funded assistance. Our borders have been invaded and millions of tax dollars are spent on lawyers, charter flights, and schooling, for illegals.  As a result, we are forced to cover budget deficits within our schools and communities and left wondering why illegal children are allowed in our schools without health certificates or the vaccinations that all American citizens are required to have.  President Obama and Democrats see no threats to our country by ISIS or drug cartels crossing into our open borders, and the majority of Democrats including Mark Warner voted against completing the border fence that was promised years ago in exchange for an earlier amnesty.  Our President continues to claim that we are better off today then we were 6 years ago, but I have to assume he is talking about our representatives on the hill because their accounts have continued to grow while most Americans have watched their savings dwindle.

It is time for the American people to say enough is enough!  We must make our representatives live by the same rule of law that we are forced to obey.  We need to send home the representatives who have made a career out of making millions in office while the rest of the country goes down the proverbial drain! Tell them we have had enough…VOTE Mark Warner out!!

Obama, Amnesty, Lies and the November Elections!

 

images

As many times as President Obama has promised  immigration reform in return for the 67% and 71% of the Hispanic vote he received in his 2008 and 2012 bid for the White House, what has he actually achieved?  He has blamed House Republicans for the lack of reform all while refusing to admit that his commitment to securing our borders, would be the first step in actually gaining bipartisan support for reform.  Although a formal immigration reform bill has not been passed, over the past 6 years, President Obama has fundamentally and systematically destroyed U.S. laws on deportation and immigration. He has encouraged illegals to come into the country, sign up for government entitlement programs funded by taxpayers, all while demonizing and retaliating against any state that enforces immigration laws. He has consistently lied and misled the American people, while he has removed any and all barriers at our borders. Many Americans, who have been in favor of immigration reform, have now tired of the lack of legal ramifications for those crossing our borders and hiding within the system, while freely partaking of public services that we, as Americans, have paid for and must jump through hoops ourselves in order to receive. If the country wants immigration reform, they have to look no further than the oval office for causing the political stalemate that has stymied all efforts to resolve the issue.

Below, you will find a timeline that shows how President Obama has not only disregarded our current deportation and immigration laws, but has systematically opened up our borders and refused to deport any illegals currently in the US.  In this day of terrorist threats, you must ask the question, why is our back door wide open to those whose life’s purpose is to destroy us?

I know the article is long, but I can assure you, if you read the entire timeline, you will be fully informed and no doubt appalled at the deception that has been played out at the expense and detriment of the American citizens and the United States. (Senator Jeff Sessions has provided the majority of the timeline).

 

President Obama gave a speech on Comprehensive Immigration Reform.

Obama: “To begin with, our borders have been porous for decades.  Obviously, the problem is greatest along our Southern border, but it’s not restricted to that part of the country.  In fact, because we don’t do a very good job of tracking who comes in and out of the country as visitors, large numbers avoid immigration laws simply by over-staying their visas.”

“More fundamentally, the presence of so many illegal immigrants makes a mockery of all those who are going through the process of immigrating legally.  Indeed, after years of patchwork fixes and ill-conceived revisions, the legal immigration system is as broken as the borders.”

 

March 8 2010:  ICE (U.S Immigration and Custom Enforcement)  Inflates Deportation Statistics According to the Washington Post: “Months after reporting that the number of illegal immigrants removed by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement increased 47 percent during President Obama’s first year in office, the Department of Homeland Security on Monday corrected the record, saying the actual increase in those deported and ‘voluntary departures’ was 5 percent.”

June 18, 2010: Obama Administration Sues Arizona over Immigration Enforcement Law. 

 Obama:  “For example, there are those in the immigrants’ rights community who have argued passionately that we should simply provide those who are [here] illegally with legal status, or at least ignore the laws on the books and put an end to deportation until we have better laws.  And often this argument is framed in moral terms:  Why should we punish people who are just trying to earn a living? I recognize the sense of compassion that drives this argument, but I believe such an indiscriminate approach would be both unwise and unfair.  It would suggest to those thinking about coming here illegally that there will be no repercussions for such a decision.  And this could lead to a surge in more illegal immigration.  And it would also ignore the millions of people around the world who are waiting in line to come here legally.” 

July 30, 2010: In a memo to agency director Alejandro Mayorkas,  the Obama Administration details the plan to bypass Congress and grant amnesty by executive fiat.

October 17, 2010:  The administration dismissed hundreds of deportation cases. Up 700% between July and August 2010. 

Obama: “Ultimately, our nation, like all nations, has the right and obligation to control its borders and set laws for residency and citizenship.  And no matter how decent they are, no matter their reasons, the 11 million who broke these laws should be held accountable.”

August 24, 2010: The Houston Chronicle reported that DHS had begun “systematically reviewing thousands of pending immigration cases and moving to dismiss those filed against suspected illegal immigrants without serious criminal records.”

February 15, 2011: DHS Ignores Mandate To Maintain Operational Control of the Border.  The Government Accountability Office announces that U.S. Customs and Border Protection maintains only 69 of the roughly 4,000 miles along the northern border and only 873 of the almost 2,000 miles along the southwestern border. Only 33.7 miles of the 700 miles of fence mandated by the Secure Fence Act of 2006 had been completed by that time. Chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee Michael McCaul responded to the President’s claim, stating “the border is not secure and it has never been more violent or dangerous.”

 Obama: “We have more boots on the ground on the Southwest border than at any time in our history.  We doubled the personnel assigned to Border Enforcement Security Task Forces.  We tripled the number of intelligence analysts along the border.  For the first time, we’ve begun screening 100 percent of southbound rail shipments.  And as a result, we’re seizing more illegal guns, cash and drugs than in years past.  Contrary to some of the reports that you see, crime along the border is down.  And statistics collected by Customs and Border Protection reflect a significant reduction in the number of people trying to cross the border illegally.”  “So the bottom line is this:  The southern border is more secure today than at any time in the past 20 years.”

March 16, 2010:  DHS Announces Termination of Funding for Virtual Fence Along the Southwestern Border

 Obama:But our borders are just too vast for us to be able to solve the problem only with fences and border patrols.  It won’t work.  Our borders will not be secure as long as our limited resources are devoted to not only stopping gangs and potential terrorists, but also the hundreds of thousands who attempt to cross each year simply to find work.” 

Obama:That’s why businesses must be held accountable if they break the law by deliberately hiring and exploiting undocumented workers.  We’ve already begun to step up enforcement against the worst workplace offenders.  And we’re implementing and improving a system to give employers a reliable way to verify that their employees are here legally. But we need to do more.  We cannot continue just to look the other way as a significant portion of our economy operates outside the law.  It breeds abuse and bad practices.  It punishes employers who act responsibly and undercuts American workers.”

January 2009: Obama Administration Ends Worksite Enforcement Actions.  In early 2009,  ICE executed a raid (initiated and planned under the Bush administration) on an engine machine shop in Bellingham, Washington, detaining 28 illegal immigrants who were using fake Social Security numbers and identity documents. Shortly thereafter, pro-amnesty groups criticized the Administration for enforcing the law. An unnamed DHS official was quoted in the Washington Times as saying, “the Secretary is not happy about it and this is not her policy.” Instead of enforcing the law, the Secretary investigated the ICE agents for simply doing their duty. Esther Olavarria, Deputy Assistant Secretary of Homeland Security, said on a call with employers and pro-amnesty groups that “we’re not doing raids or audits under this administration.”

Obama: “So, we have gone above and beyond what was requested by the very Republicans who said they supported broader reform as long as we got serious about enforcement. But even though we’ve answered these concerns, I suspect there will be those who will try to move the goal posts one more time. They’ll say we need to triple the border patrol. Or quadruple the border patrol. They’ll say we need a higher fence to support reform. Maybe they’ll say we need a moat. Or alligators in the moat. They’ll never be satisfied. And I understand that. That’s politics.”

June 1, 2011: Obama Administration Ignores New York’s Refusal to Cooperate with Federal Immigration Agents.  

 March – June 2011: ICE Director Morton outlines new enforcement priorities, despite having no legal or congressional authority to do so, he tells police to refrain from enforcing the law against individuals engaging in protests, if they are here illegally.

June 23, 2011: ICE Union Outraged Over Morton Administrative Amnesty Memos. The ICE union issued a press release expressing outrage over Director Morton’s actions, stating: “Unable to pass its immigration agenda through legislation, the Administration is now implementing it through agency policy.” “have excluded our union and our agents from the entire process of developing policies, it was all kept secret from us, we found out from the newspapers. “the result is a means for every person here illegally to avoid arrest or detention, as officers we will never know who we can or cannot arrest.” The release concluded: “we are asking everyone to please email or call your Congressman and Senators immediately and ask them to help stop what’s happening at ICE, we desperately need your help.”

Obama: “Today, there are an estimated 11 million undocumented immigrants in the United States.  But they’ve broken the rules, and have cut in front of the line. And the truth is, the presence of so many illegal immigrants makes a mockery of all those who are trying to immigrate legally.”

August 18, 2011: Administration Begins Case-by-Case Review of Deportation Cases for Purposes of Granting Administrative Amnesty

September 2, 2011: Treasury Inspector General Reports Government Paying Billions in Tax Credits to Illegal Immigrants. “Millions of people are seeking this tax credit who, we believe, are not entitled to it.

December 29, 2011: ICE Creates 24-Hotline for Illegal Immigrant Detainees. ICE announced a new 24-hour hotline for illegal immigrant detainees to ensure that they “are made aware of their rights.” The hotline is to be staffed by the Law Enforcement Support Center, which ICE had previously claimed was too understaffed to respond to local law enforcement trying to verify immigration status.

January 5, 2012: DHS Stops Secure Communities in Alabama in Retaliation for State Immigration Enforcement Law.

Obama: “With respect to the notion that I can just suspend deportations through executive order, that’s just not the case.”

January 6, 2012: USCIS Announces Proposal To Permit an Entire Segment of Illegal Immigrant Population To Remain in the U.S. USCIS announced a proposed rule to allow the illegal immigrant relatives of U.S. citizens to apply for waivers to remain in U.S., thereby avoiding the law that requires them to return to their home countries and apply for a waiver. USCIS Director Mayorkas emphasized they would also consider expanding the waiver to illegal immigrant relatives of green card holders and clarified that even illegal immigrants in deportation proceedings  are  eligible for these waivers.  USCIS issued field guidance for the program, instructing USCIS officers that an applicant with a criminal history is still eligible for a waiver as long as the offense qualifies as a “petty offense” or “youthful offender” exception under the INA and is not a crime involving moral turpitude.

Obama:Now, I know some people want me to bypass Congress and change the laws on my own.  And believe me, right now dealing with Congress… Believe me, the idea of doing things on my own is very tempting.  I promise you. Not just on immigration reform.  But that’s not how our system works. That’s not how our democracy functions.  That’s not how our Constitution is written.”

March 5, 2014: Administration unilaterally acts to provide work permits to spouses of H-1B guest workers, increasing the supply of guest workers by almost 100,000 plus an additional 30,000 each following year.

Obama:   “Protecting public safety and deporting dangerous criminals has been and will remain the top priority, but we are going to refocus our efforts where we can to make sure we do what it takes to keep our border secure.”   “We focused our enforcement efforts on criminals who are here illegally and who endanger our communities.  And today, deportations of criminals is at its highest level ever. “

May  31, 2014:  DHS DOC Reveals Mass Release of Criminal Aliens. The Obama administration released more than 63,000 criminal immigrants with nearly 88,000 convictions. The crimes included murder, rape, pedophilia, and kidnapping as well as thousands of drug-related crimes.

Obama:  “First, we strengthened security at the borders so that we could finally stem the tide of illegal immigrants.  We put more boots on the ground on the southern border than at any time in our history.  And today, illegal crossings are down nearly 80 percent from their peak in 2000.” 

Summer, 2014:  Tens of thousands of illegal men, women and children surge the border and overwhelm border patrol.

June, 2014:  Eric holder of DOJ, reports that the U.S. will supply over 100 lawyers and paralegals for the illegals surging the border at the cost of over $2 million to taxpayers. DHS decides to house illegals at military bases. Free charter flights will be arranged to fly illegals across the US to unite with families who are also here illegally at the expense of the U.S. taxpayer.

July, 2014: New reports show the number of migrants who crossed the border in family units outnumbered the unaccompanied children and come to the U.S. carrying disease. A large number of “children” crossing border unaccompanied are actually teenagers between 15 and 18 and some participating in gangs. The majority of illegals crossing the border carry tuberculosis, scabies and other infectious diseases. “There is really no hard stop at the border, and we have no idea health-wise what diseases are coming across,” a health official who works in the McAllen border said.  ”There’s no real medical screening either. Basically if [an illegal immigrant] tells a Border Patrol agent or law enforcement official they feel sick, or if they look sick, then they’re checked. If they don’t say anything, that’s it, they’re cleared.”

Obama: The children who are fortunate enough to survive it will be taken care of while they go through the legal process, but in most cases that process will lead to them being sent back home.” 

July-August, 2014: Surge of illegal children over the border are secretly transported to communities and cities across the U.S. with out prior notification to local governments. Communities budgets are stretched beyond limits. 

Obama:   “In embracing America, you can become American. And that enriches all of us.

July, 2014: Obama and Holder sue an American Company for requiring employees to speak English.

Obama: “We’re sending a strong signal that they can’t simply show up at the border and automatically assume that they’re going to be absorbed.”

September, 2014: Illegal surge of children at the border are placed into U.S. schools. Over 37,000 newly arrived illegal children are enrolled in public schools at a cost to taxpayers of $750 billion. Public schools and communities are not able to handle the overcrowding and the demand on local budgets and services.

Obama:Protecting public safety and deporting dangerous criminals has been and will remain the top priority, but we are going to refocus our efforts where we can to make sure we do what it takes to keep our border secure.”

Obama: “Today, I sent a letter to congressional leaders asking that they work with me to address the urgent humanitarian challenge on the border, and support the immigration and Border Patrol agents who already apprehend and deport hundreds of thousands of undocumented immigrants every year.” 

 September, 2014: Obama administration stops prosecutions of first time illegals under “Operation Streamline.” “Operation Streamline is like one of the last strongholds we have as a deterrent. Our manpower is dwindling on a daily basis,” Worsencroft said. “The fence can only do so much.”

Obama:  “Are folks more interested in politics, or are they more interested in solving the problem? If they’re interested in solving the problem, then this can be solved. If the preference is for politics, then it won’t be solved.” 

September, 2014:   Obama administration turns blind eye to  hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens receiving free healthcare through Obamacare, while Americans are thrown off their policies.

Please find out if your State Senator or Congressman support Amnesty.  If you believe that we must secure our borders before offering another amnesty to millions of illegals, then please go to the polls and vote in November!

“Beheadings: Coming to Your Town Soon?”

140903124055-isis-killer-beheading-video-story-top

 

The Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, or ISIS, has posted beheadings of two Americans on Social Media and threatened another British worker with beheading.   In the news this week, ISIS called on followers in Australia to behead innocent citizens within their cities and  has called on followers in the United States to kidnap and behead military personnel,  all to prove their power and reach into our lives.

What does the Quran say about beheading? Is there really something in the Holy book of Islam that suggests beheading the infidels is a path to paradise where you can have what ever you wish?  Or is beheading just a gruesome act that extreme Islamists have adopted as a scare tactic? Does this group called ISIS or ISIL, truly, not represent Islam like our President has insisted?

Quran 8:12, which says,

“When your Lord revealed to the angels: I am with you, therefore make firm those who believe. I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them.” 

 Is the religion of Islam peaceful? Have the “radicals”  just taken peaceful passages from the Quran and interpreted them into directives to kill all who do not worship Allah?  In researching  the Quran, I came across a paper by Bassam Khoury, titled,  Is Islam a Peace-Loving Religion?,  where he said,

In order to understand the Quran, it is imperative that you understand the concept of  “abrogation.””

In the Quran there are many verses that contradict themselves throughout the writings, sometimes more than once.  “Abrogation” says that Muslims must know which verse came first and which came later, because  when there is a contradiction, the latest writing is the one that should be taken as truth.  Verses early in the Quran call for a peaceful response to any who oppose Islam;

“Therefore expound opening what thou art commanded, and turn away from those who join false gods with Allah.

However, later in the Quranthere are verses which say the exact opposite;

But when the forbidden months are past, then fight and slay the pagans wherever ye find them and seize them, beleaguer them, and lie in wait for them in every stratagem.

So which one are they to believe? By the rules of abrogation, Muslims must believe the latter.  The majority of Islamic scholars say that one verse of the Quran, which speaks of violence against non believers,  abrogates 124 verses, which are all the verses that speak of peace and forgiveness.  Therefore, are we to believe that the Quran supports and encourages violence against non-believers?  If it does, then why would peace loving believers of Islam, say that violence is not permitted, if, in fact, abrogation is the rule of law in the Quran? Mr. Khoury  speaks of a quote by Abu Hammid Ghazali,  a Professor at the Nizamiyah University of Baghdad, which was recognized as one of the most reputed institutions of learning in the golden era of Muslim history. He said,

“Speaking is a means to achieve objectives,  if a  praiseworthy aim is attainable through both telling the truth and lying, it is unlawful to accomplish through lying because there is no need for it. When it is possible to achieve such an aim by lying but not by telling the truth, it is permissible to lie if attaining the goal is permissible.”  

So what are we to believe? Who are we to believe?

If we look at happenings around the world, we have seen untold numbers of beheadings committed by those who claim to do so in the name of Allah and  Islam. ISIS has beheaded and slaughtered soldiers, men, women and children. They have driven throughout the streets shooting innocent families in their cars, they have beheaded children and forced their parents to carry their heads as an example to others. Christian populations are being tortured and killed, throughout the Muslim world, yet Islam is portrayed as a “peaceful” religion.  Is this the violence that is demanded in the Quran?  Is this the violence that followers of Islam are expected to deliver to any who do not believe in the Islamic faith or submit to conversion? Is it a peaceful religion that kidnaps and forces young girls to convert to Islam with a knife at their throats, and then raping them or forcing them to marry or be used as slaves? Riffat Hassan, professor of religious studies at University of Louisville, says,

“The way Islam has been practiced in most Muslim societies for centuries has left millions of Muslim women with battered bodies, minds and souls.”

I wish to believe that the majority of Muslims do not follow or believe in the violence that has become such common place committed by fellow Muslims.   But, where is the outrage by the Muslim community and what will the leaders of the Middle East do to stop the trail of carnage?

The United States, Australia, Great Britain, France, Germany the Netherlands and Canada have offered up training , intelligence, financial barriers, deportations, tangible equipment and ammunition, and reconnaissance flights, but NO Troops on the ground!  Turkey, Jordan and Saudi Arabia have offered their assistance by supplying locations for training, and money, but NO troops on the ground! Why, would the Middle Eastern world refuse to fight the “extremists,” if their countrymen are in the direct and deadly path of ISIS?   President Obama says  the majority of those murdered have been Muslims, so why does the Middle East refuse to defend its people? Do they secretly believe in the “cause” of ISIS?  Do they believe the world should and will one day convert to Islam? Why will they not fight the fight? Those in Muslim countries who stand up to this violence are Christians, and they put their lives on the line to speak out against the slaughter of their own. The majority of Muslims that have been tortured, murdered, and beheaded have not just been Muslims, but Christian Muslims. Is this why Muslim leaders refuse to defend the people of the Middle East?

In Australia, counterterrorism forces detained 15 people after receiving intelligence that ISIS was planning public beheadings in Australian cities to demonstrate its reach. We have seen British and United States citizens who have taken up the fight with ISIS. A woman was recently found beheaded in her garden in North London. A Muslim suspect admitted he shot, Brendan Tevlin, a straight A student, 8 times as vengeance for US military action in the Middle East.  He is also suspected in three other murders within the United States. ISIS has taken over social media and are using it as a tool to recruit new fighters. They are posting directions in online chat rooms, on how to prepare bombs in your kitchen as well as a list of tourist spots to hit; Times Square, the state of Texas, military locations and any place where there are crowds.

Should we consider ISIS a direct threat to the United States? Our borders are open and we basically don’t know who is entering the United States and the ultimate purpose of everyone who enters.  The counter terrorism group in Australia considered themselves lucky to have discovered this extended ISIS group before they were able to commit countless beheadings of innocent civilians.  What if we are unable to catch a group planning the same events here at home? When will President Obama take this situation seriously and do what is necessary to keep the American people safe? Why has he not secured our borders? Why does he continue to be more concerned with political correctness, and the “feelings” of Muslims over the safety of the American people?

Just this week, a measure was put forth in the Senate, the “Expatriate Terrorist Act,” which would renounce the citizenship of anyone in the United States that joins the fight with terrorist groups like ISIS. However,  Democratic senators objected saying this might infringe on their constitutional rights. Republican senator, Ted Cruz said,

“If we do not pass this legislation, the consequence will be that Americans fighting alongside ISIS today may come home tomorrow with a U.S. passport, may come home to New York, or Los Angeles or Houston or Chicago, and innocent Americans may be murdered if the Senate does not act today.” 

Why are we concerned with protecting the rights of terrorists?

Nigel Farage, is a British politician and has been the leader of the UK Independence Party since 2010.  In a recent interview, he said,

“I tie the growing ISIS threat to multiculturalism. Children and women were systematically sexually abused by Pakistani Muslim men and it was known by child protective services and the police force and they did nothing because they feared if they said or did anything they would be considered “racist.”  Whole districts are becoming “no-go” zones for the police, then it leads to Sharia law actually being implemented in parts of British cities, then it leads to British citizens going off to Syria and Iraq to fight for ISIS.  If we in Britain,  America and the west, who come from Christian cultures, who believe in Democracy,  value them,  we better stand up and start fighting for them. It does not mean that we are against other religions, far from it. We can be tolerant, we have always been tolerant. But we have to accept that our society is based on the rule of law and that every citizen must be treated equally.”

I believe the President and his followers are so concerned with being politically correct and are so determined not to “hurt” or offend Muslims in our country, that we will slowly but surely follow in the wrongful and debilitating steps of the UK.  It is time for us to stand up and fight for our country which stands for freedom, liberty and the rule of law; OUR rule of law. We should not be tolerant of those who chose to participate within a group like ISIS whose only claim to fame is the purposeful, cowardly and barbaric killing of men, women and children who are not believers in Islam. We must stop being so concerned with “feelings” and get to the business of protecting our own!

Why do immigrants flock to our borders, leaving their own homeland and cultures, if they just want to change us into the very place they left?  Why is it politically incorrect to want to keep our culture and our morals and ethics within our own borders? In 1907, Theodore Roosevelt said,

‘In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person’s becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American…There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn’t an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag… We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language.. And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.’

We are the United States! Millions clamor at our borders because we represent freedom, both economically and religiously.  We stand for hard work and the American dream. We have remained passive for too long, under the command of the politically correct. We have watched as our country has been fundamentally transformed into something we no longer recognize.  Our economy is circling the drain, unemployment has remained stagnant, friends and families have been divided through polarization by our politicians,  entitlements have gone through the roof,  part time jobs are now the norm, illegals have gained unlimited access to our borders, provided with homes, education, free flights to cities around the U.S. to be reunited with their families, integrated into our communities and schools without proper health screenings, all at the expense of the American people against their wishes.  Our borders have become a laughing stock and an open invitation to any and all who wish us harm.  Now, we are being threatened  inside our country by a radical religious group who our President chooses to defend while Christians are slaughtered around the world.

Must we see, once controlled diseases  take hold again because we allow unvaccinated children into the very schools that will not allow American kids to enter without proof of immunization? Do we need to see airplanes again, take their own murderous path because we allow illegals to fly without identification while we strip search American citizens? Must we be stripped of our rights and our money in order to appease those who are here without our permission? Must we be denied our voice in elections because politicians corrupt the very integrity of our voting booths, demanding illegals be granted the right to vote,  all  in the name of politics?  Do we need to see American citizens beheaded in our own communities before we recognize the very enemy in our midst and the open path through which they arrived?  It is time to stop the madness! It is time to bring back the country that was once the envy of the world but which has become the very example of corruption, lies, and tyranny that WE once fought around the world!

“An Angry Republican” Part 2

 

 

iStock_000010295104_SmallI received a response from the very person that inspired  me to write “An Angry Republican.” I began to reply and decided that the comments made and my response were worthy of another article, which follows. 

In accusing me of sounding like an “angry republican”, I am wondering why you automatically assume I am a republican? Why is it that anyone who believes in our free enterprise system, the freedoms guaranteed by our constitution and small government, must always be “angry republicans?”

 

There are many Americans who are sick and tired of the “fundamental transformation” of a nation that once was the envy of the world. Obama has spent the past 6 years breaking down the constitutional rights that guarantee us our freedoms, transforming the United States into a government conglomerate, run by corrupt bureaucrats determined to turn us into a nanny state that has no sovereignty and can no longer be trusted by its allies and no longer feared by it’s enemies.

 

Milton Friedman once said,

 

“Ever since the first settlement of Europeans in the New World, American has been a magnet for people seeking adventure, fleeing from tyranny, or simply trying to make a better life for themselves and their children.”

 

I still believe that we are the envy of the world if for nothing than the entrepreneurial spirit that remains the backbone of this country.  It is well researched that entrepreneurship empowers all, regardless of education, sex, color of skin and nationality. As we have seen,  many nations have adopted this philosophy and realized great success as a result. We remain the envy of the world because of our constitution and the freedoms we offer our citizens.  The United States has always been regarded as a nation of immigrants and have more than four times as many immigrants than any other nation in the world. We must be doing something right!  And regardless of what Obama says,  I believe we are exceptional!

 

Yet, you are correct, that the United States and its standing around the world in regards to foreign policy has dropped significantly. President Obama took office determined, despite his ignorance, that the world could all join hands, sing kumbaya and automatically “the rise of the oceans would begin to slow and our planet would begin to heal.” However, as “angry americans” recognized from the beginning, his philosophy would never succeed. As Albert Einstein said, “So long as there are men, there will be wars.”

 

I think most  “angry Americans,” recognized the fundamental transformation that began under Obama and as a result have logically become very “angry!”  We have lost our voice in government. Our career politicians no longer understand what it means to take a risk and start a business, run a company, hire employees and make a profit. The word profit and anyone who works towards that end is evil and never pays their fair share.  Our career politicians no longer listen to or represent the people. They make laws that benefit themselves and then pick and choose who will be required to tow the line. The majority lie, cheat and steal in order to keep their jobs and they refuse to live under the very laws they force on us. This has become the rule instead of the exception under the Obama regime.

 

Why is it that so many Americans are uninformed or misinformed? Could it be that the very media that are supposed to keep politicians and government honest have been inundated with liberals who support the fundamental transformation of our nation and as a result mislead and misinform the populace purposefully? Have we become a nation where lies are the new norm and the truth no longer matters? A nation where all you have to do is repeat the lie enough and it will eventually be believed? Is Fox the only answer? No.  To really be informed, you must get your news from many sources including those with whom you disagree. You claim a major international newspaper, who you failed to identify, called Fox News “brash, bombastic and biased,” yet they refuse to comment on the lies, omissions and distortion of the so-called news by the liberal media? And they consider that fair and honest reporting?

 

And let’s not forget John Stewart a liberal who takes every opportunity to twist and turn news stories into funny comedic acts that just further the liberal agenda all under the auspices of comedy.  This is just another way of slowly integrating the beliefs of the left onto the unsuspecting public. He obviously has garnered  a following who believe he is a real news guy who tells the whole truth and nothing but the truth, all while allowing you to laugh and believe you are being informed.  This along with our current government-run education system that continues to slowly dumb down the public; add in the war on women and the constant recruitment of  government entitlement participants, and you have a population of people who will not and cannot survive on their own and have therefore surrendered their lives, their rights, their power  and their very freedoms to the United States government.  Flood the borders with illegals, grant them amnesty and the right to vote and you have liberals in control for ever. We all know you never bite the hand that feeds you!  Long live Socialism!

 

And now, my vote for the absolute worst comment of the day?

“Our right of free speech is enshrined in the Constitution, however, and has little to do with our veterans. This is not to take away the sacrifices our veterans have made, however, but it has nothing to do with the point at hand. These are the kind of comments that politicians make to grab votes.”

These remarks about our Veterans, obviously mimic the feelings of the Obama administration and most liberals regarding our military.  So easily deployed when you need them, but so quickly dismissed when they no longer serve your purpose. You forget that they, on a daily basis, fight for us to keep the very freedoms our forefathers guaranteed under the Constitution and our Bill of Rights.  Your knowledge of our history is seriously lacking if you believe that our Veterans have little to do with the defense of our freedoms. They are the only wall of defense, outside of an informed populace that protects our freedoms and our constitution. It is this very mindset that has so many on the left refusing to stand for the rights of our Veterans. When the people are told that our Veterans made no sacrifices in the name of freedom and our youth are no longer educated on the sacrifices made by our Veterans, then this country will  cease to exist as our forefathers intended. I ask you, if our Veterans do not fight for our very freedoms, then what do they fight for? We are well on our way to an uneducated and misinformed public. Now, let our Veterans die from poor healthcare, send them pink slips on the battlefield, fire all the Generals who do not subscribe to the liberal agenda and soon enough, you have no one to defend our Nation and those who have always wished us harm have exactly what they wished for….no more America, land of the free and home of the brave!

 

We all know that every President makes mistakes that affect the administration that follows.  We all know that George Bush made mistakes, as did most Presidents before him. But when you have an administration, that is incapable of accepting responsibility for its own failed polices and actions and continues to blame others, you must recognize that we have no real leader. We are well into the sixth year of Obama’s presidency and I would like to know at what point Obama plans on becoming the leader of the United States? At what point will he stop blaming Bush and pick up the gavel and lead this country? All I have seen so far is the total takeover and control of our healthcare system, the land we live on, the air we breath and the water we drink, all in the name of global warming and environmentalism. When will it stop? At what point will the economy, jobs, energy independence, freedom of religion, speech, the press and the sovereignty of this nation become more important to Obama than politics, fundraising, golf, and vacationing?

 

Finally your definition of a Liberal,

 

“Read the Constitution again, the sum and substance of which is the people should be free to do whatever they want as long as they don’t interfere with the lives of others, which is the definition of a Liberal if ever there was one.”

 

Ironically,  I will leave the response to this one up to a self-professed liberal….. Alan Clifton, who said,

 

“I’ve written numerous articles defending women’s rights, gay rights, immigrant rights, minority right and equality, and I’ve fiercely opposed racists bigots and intolerance in general. Yet, I’ve been called a racist, bigot, sexist, homophobic woman-hater – all by liberals.”  “Then there are the ‘PC police” types. These are the people who essentially find almost everything offensive. Basically they want a society where everyone better watch what they say or do because you never know who you just might offend.”  “It’s getting to a point where some are going from passionate activists fighting for a good cause to over sensationalized complainers who just want to go around judging anyone and everyone for everything they do.”

 

Finally, something said by a liberal that I can believe in!  Well said Alan, well said!

“Obama’s House of Cards!”

images

Are you a fan of the Netflix Show, “House of Cards?”  I began watching the show last year, and because of my interest in politics, the show drew me in from the start.  While you are watching, you can imagine the reality this must represent on the Hill.  You can almost substitute characters on the show for their very real counterparts in DC.  I have to say that the show absolutely makes me sick, so why do I watch? On some level I guess it is entertainment, but fantasy always imitates real life and I can only hope those who watch will finally come to see the lies, self interest, back room deals, deception and manipulation that really goes on in Washington.  Are we watching Obama’s own “House of Cards” drama unfold before our very eyes.

 

I believe the current immigration situation in the United States is a real life manipulation and massive deception on the American people.  It would make a great theme to consider on “House of Cards.”

 

This “surge” at our borders has been going on for months right under President Obama’s nose. As a matter of fact, the White House actually advertised for “babysitters” to care for the expected flood of illegal children at our borders back in January, so this was obviously no surprise. The border has been easily penetrated for years and years, under Democratic and Republican presidents. As a matter of fact, amnesty has been granted 7 times, but Republican Presidents, Reagan and Bush instituted the two largest, granting amnesty to 7-15 million illegals.

 

I do have to give President Obama the overall “Care Less” award.  Why?  Because he says he is a huge supporter of Immigration Reform, yet every decision he makes, every time he ignores our laws, he is pushing the public’s hand at denying ANY form of immigration reform.  Every time he defies Congress he pushes them further and further from considering reform because Obama refuses to follow the rule of law.  He demonizes anyone who refuses to give him a free reign over immigration while he continuously refuses to protect our borders.

 

Obama claims the United States is more secure now than ever in our history.  Is this true? Currently, only 36.1 miles of the 700-mile double-tiered fence promised by the Democrats and President Obama, has been completed. Thousands of miles of border are not even patrolled due to under staffing. Does they really believe our borders are safe? Does he really think leaving the American people vulnerable to terrorists and drug cartels is keeping us safe? Does he care that parents, under the assumption that once in the states their children will be able to remain, are vulnerable to sexual attacks and trafficking as well as abuse and gang violence and recruitment? Are they being honest about the children currently crossing the borders? Would you feel any differently if you knew that the majority of the “children” that have come into our country are males between the ages of 14 and 18? How would you feel if you knew that a percentage of these “children” were MS-13 gang members? Did you know that they are still housed with the younger children and have been instructed to recruit more gang members? Are these really the “children” he is releasing in our towns and communities? Do we know whom we are handing these children over to? These so-called “foster parents,”  are also illegal and have no background information. So do we really know what is happening to these children once they are turned over? Are they really safer here than at home with their real parents?

 

He has successfully angered the American public because of his inaction on our borders. Illegals are entering the country with communicable diseases, including but not limited to tuberculosis, and being integrated into our communities and schools.  Funds to support them are being taken from American taxpayers and budgets in local communities are being stretched beyond their limits. The White House refuses to notify state government leaders of the arrival of hundreds and hundreds of illegals requiring housing and care with taxpayer dollars. Those responsible for keeping our borders secure are spending their time changing diapers and babysitting. Is this keeping our borders safe?

President Obama has refused to deport even the worst criminals that have entered our country illegally. In 2013 alone, he ordered the DHS to release 68,000 illegals with criminal convictions back into our communities. These were persons convicted of murder, rape, sexual abuse and pedophilia as well as robberies and gang violence. Why would he do that? How does that serve the American public?

 

Hispanics around the country point at Obama as the “savior” for their cause, but do they understand that he is actually the “Devil” in the details personally destroying their cause with the American public instead of doing everything possible to encourage immigration reform? Why?

 

How do legal immigrants feel about the surge at the border? They are angry. They have gone through the system legally and are now being pushed to the back of the line while illegals are granted green cards, driver’s licenses and now a possible vote? Are we rewarding illegal behavior? Will granting amnesty encourage others to cross our borders without going through the proper channels?

 

What is Mexico and Guatemala doing about this?  Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto and Guatemalan President Otto Perez Molina held a press conference to announce an agreement to make it easier for those making the illegal journey to the United States from Central America to cross into Mexico. They are offering a 72-hour free pass to travel through their countries to get to the border of the United States. What is President Obama doing about this? Has he expressed his outrage at this policy?  Has he told them that we will stop aid to their country if they continue this behavior? Has he told them that will even deduct the expenses we are suffering from their aid until this is stopped Why not?

 

 

Increasingly, illegals are staging protests in Washington, D.C. and around the country demanding immigration reform and rights. Are they becoming too bold considering they are actually breaking the law by even being here? And now they protest making demands?

 

In New York, Senator Gustavo Rivera, a Democrat, introduced a bill to allow illegals to vote. He is supported on this bill by Representative, Karim Camara also a Democrat.  Mayor John DeStefano, Democrat for New Haven Connecticut, is also fighting to give the vote to Illegals and is supported by Representative Juan Candelaria, Democrat. They are determined to make this a reality along with driver’s licenses, free education, instate tuition, SNAP cards, healthcare and welfare. All supplied courtesy of the American taxpayer.  How much more can we be expected to give? Why are they determined to go against even their own constituents to make this happen?

 

If we look at the last presidential election, Obama and Democrats received over 93% of the Hispanic vote. What does this mean for the next election?

 

I think we can all put together the puzzle pieces…this is all about politics as usual in Washington. If Democrats get 93% of the Hispanic vote, and they continue to demonize all other political parties or views, then who is guaranteed the Hispanic vote in the next election? What about the 11 states controlled by Democrats that have voted to get rid of the Electoral college and move to the popular vote?  What? you did not know about that? Why hasn’t the press made that a lead story? Shouldn’t the public be aware if our current voting system is being changed? Is the plan starting to make sense now? Is this scheme best for the United States and its citizens or just the Democrats?

 

How can we convince the American people to agree to immigration reform?

 

Get our economy back on track. Force Harry Reid in the Senate to put the 42 job creation bills passed by Congress up for a vote. Stop releasing dangerous illegal criminals into our communities. Deport those who break our laws by entering our borders illegally. Stop offering taxpayer dollars to support those who have broken our laws.  Shorten the waiting period for those who go through the system the proper way. But most importantly….stop lying to the American public and SECURE OUR BORDERS NOW!!!

“Homeland Security Advertises for Babysitters Long Before the Border Invasion! Enough is Enough!!”

images

Once again, the Obama administration claims surprise about the flood of illegal minors at the border, however, an ad placed by DHS tells a different story.

The Department of Homeland Security  (DHS) started advertising for escorts for thousands of illegal minors months before they even showed up. Here is a copy of the ad they posted almost 6 months ago.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), a component of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), has a continuing and mission critical responsibility for accepting custody of Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC) from U.S. Border Patrol and other Federal agencies and transporting these juveniles to Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) shelters located throughout the continental United States.

Contractor shall provide unarmed escort staff, including management, supervision, manpower, training, certifications, licenses, drug testing, equipment, and supplies necessary to provide on-demand escort services for non-criminal/non-delinquent unaccompanied alien children ages infant to 17 years of age, seven (7) days a week, 365 days a year. Transport will be required for either category of UAC or individual juveniles, to include both male and female juveniles. There will be approximately 65,000 UAC in total:

1)  The contractor could initially provide transportation services only in the Southwest Region of the U.S. for those juveniles who are apprehended in the state of Texas; or, (2) The Contractor may be required to provide transportation services for all juveniles who are in DHS custody throughout the continental U.S.

So how did the administration know that they would be having over 65,000 illegal children rushing the border? Why would they be advertising for babysitters to care for and transport these children around cities in the US before anyone even knew they were coming?  Why would they not make arrangements to protect the borders if, in fact, they were expecting the surge? Bring in the National Guard? Hire more border agents?

The United States is now expecting over 90,000 illegal children to pour over the border in the next 6 months alone, and over 140,000 next year. More than 33,000 have been picked up in Texas since October. Now, Central American families with parents and children are  surging the borders as well. This year alone, 42,000 have crossed the border. Since the government has only 96 beds, almost all of them are given court dates and released into the country, where they disappear and are never deported.

Thousands have been sent to other states without the prior knowledge of local governments in the states where they were literally dumped.  Arizona Governor, Jan Brewer said she is “disturbed and outraged” after federal officials informed her that not only has the government been shipping illegal immigrants out of Texas and “dumping” them in her state, it has no plans to stop.  These illegals are being sent to Massachusetts, Maryland and Virginia among other states.

Michelle Maulkin, of the National Review reported that a law enforcement source in Texas told her that countless illegal aliens are being released into the general public despite testing positive for tuberculosis. “The feds are putting them on public transportation to God knows where.”

What is the policy that President Obama instituted that has caused this influx to our borders?

It is called the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA). He rolled out the Action in 2012, which allows illegal immigrants who came to the United States as minors to escape deportation for 2 years. The White House gave them another 2-year window earlier this month. Since Obama passed DACA, 12 times as many kids are coming into the country illegally.

What is the cost of housing the thousands of kids? Estimates are that the American taxpayer is forking over $252+ per day per child, and estimates say court dates will not be realized for at least 5 years due to a shortage of immigration judges and the increase in illegals entering the country. The administration has also set aside an additional $2 million in taxpayer dollars to cover their lawyer’s fees. Now, reports are surfacing that illegals are being placed into Obamacare.

In Oregon alone, 4000 illegals were placed into the  healthcare system via Obamacare.  This is in direct violation of the law. But, if the law is broken everyday by allowing illegals into the country, what is to stop them from being allowed to gain taxpayer-funded healthcare while millions of law-abiding Americans have seen their insurance cancelled. When is enough enough?

In December, U.S. District Judge Andrew Hanen wrote,

“This court is quite concerned with the apparent policy of the Department of Homeland Security of completing the criminal mission of those who are violating the border security of the United States. The DHS should enforce the laws of the United States – not break them.”

Currently immigration officials are releasing the immigrants into the United States to reunite with families that are also here illegally. One woman said she was told by immigration,

“You are free, you can leave.”

What is the process when these children arrive in the United States?

The responsibility falls under the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). However, they turn them over to the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).  The contract to escort these kids says they will be turned over to the Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR). Who are they and what do they do?

From their website:

“The ORR provides new populations with opportunities to maximize their potential in the United States linking people in need to critical resources to assist them in becoming integrated members of American Society.”

So, if these illegal children are turned over to the ORR, are they then categorized as refugees? If they are classified as refugees instead of illegal immigrants the ORR will adjust their refugee status to lawful permanent resident within one year of their arrival and they become eligible for US citizenship after just 5 years. How does that affect the immigrants who came into the country legally and must wait much longer to be granted status as permanent residents?

In New York, State Senator Guestavo Rivera (Democrat) introduced a new bill that would grant citizenship to millions of illegal immigrants and non-citizen residents including access to state tuition assistance and health insurance programs, the ability to apply for driver’s and professional licenses and the right to vote in state and local elections.

So now, there is a push from Democrats not just to put out the red carpet, but to legalize these immigrants, and register them to vote. Was this the intent of the Obama administration all along?

The United States has offered Amnesty seven times since 1976.  Each time blanket amnesty was given  border security was never improved. President Obama continues to say “the border is as secure as it has ever been.” He has chastised Republicans by saying,

“We have gone above and beyond what was requested by the very Republicans who said they supported broader reform as long as we got serious about enforcement. All the stuff they asked for, we’ve done. But even though we’ve answered these concerns, I’ve got to say I suspect there are still going to be some who are trying to move the goals posts on us one more time. They’ll want a higher fence. Maybe they’ll need a moat. Maybe they want alligators in the moat. They’ll never be satisfied. And I understand that. That’s politics.”

  If border security was, in fact, up to speed, then why do we continue to have millions of illegal immigrants crossing over into the Untied States year after year?

The administration acknowledges that most of the illegal immigrant children surging across the border will remain in the country for years while their cases wind through the immigration courts. In the meantime, who is paying for these unaccompanied minors? The taxpayer.

How long can the American taxpayer afford to pick up the tab for the surge of illegals invading our country? How can this administration continue to support and provide taxpayer dollars to illegals when they continue to ignore Americans and their needs? We have already seen how our Veterans have been treated and it is turning out that illegals are treated with a red carpet welcome while our own citizens are ignored. Who is the priority?  When will Politics finally be taken out of the picture? What does the law say? When will the President and his followers finally listen to the American taxpayer when they stand up and say enough? When will the law of the land be enforced?

ENOUGH is ENOUGH!!!

Obama’s Fundamental Transformation of U.S. Immigration Laws”

 

images

Congress has passed a total of 7 amnesties since 1986.  Each one gave blanket amnesty to illegals that were residing within the United States.  Each time, the public was promised that border control would be stepped up. But has the border really been secured? Based on an agreement reached in Congress in 2011, President Obama said the fence along the border of Mexico is “now basically complete.”  In his speech on May 10, 2011, in El Paso, he further said,

 

“We have gone above and beyond what was requested by the very Republicans who said they supported broader reform as long as we got serious about enforcement. All the stuff they asked for, we’ve done. But even though we’ve answered these concerns, I’ve got to say I suspect there are still going to be some who are trying to move the goals posts on us one more time. They’ll want a higher fence. Maybe they’ll need a moat. Maybe they want alligators in the moat. They’ll never be satisfied. And I understand that. That’s politics.”

 

I have one question after reading his comments on border security. If the border is secure, then how have thousands and thousands of illegals been able to cross the border into the United States? Now, thousands of minor children are flooding into the United States. Are our borders secure or are we looking at yet, another untruth told by this administration?

 

I found an article on PolitiFact.com that answered my question.

In their article, the following was said,

 

“Department of Homeland Security officials told us they have finished 649 our 652 miles of fencing (99.5 percent) which includes 299 miles of vehicle barriers and 350 miles of pedestrian fence.”

But the same day, Senator De Mint said,

 

“The Obama administration has not done its job to finish the border fence that is a critical part of keeping Americans safe and stopping illegal immigration. Five years ago, legislation was passed to build a 700-mile double layer border fence along the southwest border. This is a promise that has not been kept. Today, according to the staff at the Department of Homeland Security, just 5% of the double layer fencing is complete, only 36.1 miles.”

 

So, does that mean that President Obama is lying? Are you having flash backs to the promise, that you could keep your insurance and your doctor if you liked them?

 

Let’s flash back to President Obama’s Dream Act of 2012.

The president used his pen and phone to pass the Dream Act, which allows children of illegal aliens bought into the country, legal status in the US, without fear of deportation, and eligibility to receive instate tuition.  This law will impact approximately 800,000 illegal immigrants from the ages of 16-30. The Dream Act was passed without Congressional or Senate approval. President Obama said he passed it because Republicans were blocking the act. In fact it lost the vote in the Senate because 5 Democrats voted against it. Had they followed party lines, the Dream Act would have been approved.  Why did Obama not get the support he needed in order for the act to pass through constitutionally?

 

After his announcement, that he alone had passed the Dream Act without legislative support, a reporter asked the President,

 

“Mr. President, why do you favor foreign workers over Americans?”

 

President Obama told the reporter not to interrupt. The question was never answered.

 

Now, lets flash-forward to today at our borders.

 

President Obama is prohibiting Border Patrol Agents from talking to journalists about the thousands of minors crossing into the United States.  Why is he denying them the right to tell the public what is really going on at the border? What happened to being the most transparent administration in history? The AP recently obtained an email from an assistant patrol agent ordering more than 3000 agents not to speak to reporters about what was going on at the border or face disciplinary action or be charged criminally.  Why?

 

Representative Steve King said,

 

 “I’m afraid President Obama is going to do nothing to secure our border with Mexico. Right now, the United States effectively has no border with Mexico and the borders in Central America all the way down to Panama appear to be wide open as well.”

 

Why the sudden insurgence of minors across the border?

This is happening because of the President’s de facto amnesty for children who are in the United State illegally. President Obama recently renewed the Dream Act legitimizing juveniles who are in the US “illegally and unaccompanied.

 

When agents at the border asked over 200 non-Mexican immigrants why they were entering into the United States, 95% said they headed to the U.S because they had been told they could get a free pass simply by showing up at the border. A large percentage also said that their family members in the US told them to travel immediately because the government was issuing immigration passes until the end of June. These children and adults are not scaling the fences, they are surrendering to border control agents, because they know they will not be turned away.  They are all giving the same answer, “if you go down there, the chances of you getting sent back or deported to your native country are slim to none.” “It’s a free ticket.”  “Obama will never deport us and we can receive welfare for life. “

 

The question of the day is how these thousands of children are able to travel approximately 1800 miles through Mexico’s rough terrain to Texas? We know they would never be able to do it on their own as the majority are under 12 years of age and a lot of these kids are arriving with measles, tuberculosis and scabies. Who is helping them reach the border? How are these children crossing the Mexican border? Is Mexico intentionally letting them in and why?

 

So what is the Obama administration offering to the unaccompanied kids flooding in to the United States?

 

Mattresses have been ordered along with medical supplies and other basics. Vendors are being contracted to provide the children with nutritional meals and FEMA will provide counseling and recreational activities. There are makeshift cafes and medical centers and telephone banks and computers have been set up so they can reach other family members already in the United States. Three military installations are being used to house the immigrants.  A border patrol agent said the government is chartering airlines to fly the children form Texas to Arizona.

 

Attorney General Eric Holder announced a new program called “Justice AmeriCorps,” which will provide free lawyers and paralegal services to the illegal’s flooding the border. This program alone  is costing approximately $2million of taxpayer dollars. But that is just the beginning.

 

The Obama administration says,

“They need to defend a vulnerable population from discrimination based on their immigration status.”

 Who is paying the tab for the chartered planes, food, medical care, beds, facilities and lawyers?  Plain and simple…The US Taxpayer.

Vice President Joe Biden said,

 “The U.S. needs a constant, unrelenting stream of new immigrants to buttress the national economy.”

 Representative Henry Cueller, a Democrat, but overall critic of how Obama has handled the crisis said,

 “If we don’t send the message that they can’t just come in and stay here, its gonna continue, this wave of humanity.”

 The National Association of Former Border Patrol Agents said,

“This is not a humanitarian crisis. It is a predictable, orchestrated and contrived assault on the compassionate side of Americans by her political leaders that knowingly puts minor illegal alien children at risk for purely political purposes.” Certainly we are not gullible enough to believe that thousands of unaccompanied minor children came to America without the encouragement, aid and assistance of the United States Government. This campaign is a political deception and the responsibility rests with the political leaders who support a path to citizenship, regularization or any other form of amnesty for illegal aliens before providing for full protections for national security and public safety. Non-enforcement of immigration laws is the next step in becoming a failed state.”

Gil Kerlikowske, a commissioner of U.S Customs and Border Protection said Friday,

“Border Patrol agents are changing diapers and heating baby formula in order to care for some of the youngest children. “

 

Other agents have said,

 “ After they have crossed the border they are processed and bused or flown to another state like Arizona, Virginia or Maryland where they are given a court date and dropped off in hope they might actually show up. They hardly ever do and court dates can be as far away as three years.  Many of them are in advanced stages of pregnancy and will likely have a child that will become an American citizen.”

A border patrol agent, stationed in South Texas, whose name is being withheld in fear of retaliation, sent a letter to journalist Adan Salazar, saying,

Good Morning,

I am a Border Patrol Agent in the Rio Grande Valley Sector (RGV), south of Corpus Christi, Texas.  Thank you for your continued support and coverage of the ongoing crisis on the border.  I would like to take a moment to convey the absolute desperation that we are reaching down here.  We have been ordered to release thousands of Family Units (Parent/Child), and thousands of teenage unaccompanied juveniles (Under 18).  We have encountered numerous instances of fraud, kidnapping, and exploitation where adults are claiming that very young children are their own, when in fact they are not.  Many of the unaccompanied juveniles are claiming that they have a responsible parent to be released to, when in fact they do not.

As a Border Patrol Agent, I can tell you as an eyewitness that we are currently losing more than we are catching.  On a good day, we catch approximately 30 to 40 percent of all crossers while the rest simply get away.  In the RGV, we have been averaging around 10,000 apprehensions per week.  That means we are losing well over 10,000 aliens per week.  And the aliens that are getting away are not the juveniles or the family units because they are turning themselves in at the first sight of agents.  The ones we are losing are convicted felons, aliens from special interest countries, and other high-risk individuals.  We are so overwhelmed and preoccupied by the flood of juveniles and family units that we cannot use our resources to catch the more serious aliens.

In the RGV, we have been releasing aliens, through ICE, in Brownsville, Texas and McAllen, Texas.  We have been ordered to go out of our way to bus them to those locations for release because they are cities of mostly Hispanic heritage, so fewer people will notice or care.  We have been doing that for months before the stories broke in Phoenix, Arizona a couple of weeks ago.

We cannot get any attention or relief down here.  We desperately need immediate manpower, resources, and a firm support of Americans.  This is de facto amnesty.  The President and the Secretary of Homeland Security will ignore this issue as long as possible in order to let as many illegal aliens gain entry into the United States.

Again, thank you for your undying support and patriotism.  You have no idea how much my fellow agents and I appreciate it. God bless America.

If we can afford to charter planes to fly the illegal immigrants to Arizona, then why can’t they be flown back home and put into the care of their own country?

Why would anyone believe that asking illegals to return for their court dates in 90 days would in anyway force them to show up, especially when we will supply them will all they need to stay here and live comfortably?

The question of the day is why would President Obama open our borders and invite thousands and thousands of minors and adults to cross the border illegally into the United States?

Representative King said last week that Obama has manufactured the crisis in an attempt to overload the social welfare system.

 “I do feel this attempt to flood the border with illegals is a playing out of the Cloward-Piven theory.”

 “In 1960, Professors Richard Cloward and Francis Piven of Columbia University, Obama’s alma mater, devised a plan to provoke chaos by deliberately overwhelming governmental systems and the U.S. economy to the point of collapse, paving the way for state intervention that would ultimately replace America’s free enterprise republic with a collectivist system.”

 “If you don’t see them bring reinforcements down there to seal the border, that means that, yes, it’s a Cloward –Piven maneuver to flood the country until we get to the point where we are an open-borders country that welcomes everybody, legal and illegal.”

 Representative Steve Stockman agreed that Obama, who studied the chaos strategy (Cloward-Piven) at Columbia, according to a classmate, “is trying to do a Cloward-Piven thing with the border. This is a crisis the White House intends to create.”

 Will it overwhelm our system? When Obama took office, we had 13 million Americans on food stamps and now a record 47 million are using SNAP cards. We have almost 13 million Americans on Welfare and close to 6 million on Unemployment.  In almost all of our states, welfare pays more than minimum wage and in some cases as much as $24 per hour.  Almost 30% of welfare recipients receive benefits for 3-5 years and 20% over 5 years. Unemployment rates have stayed close to 7% with 3 times as many people dropping out of the labor force then joining it.  In April alone, 288,000 jobs were created while 806,000 people gave up looking. In April, 92,594,000 dropped out of the labor force and that was 1 million more then the month before. The number of women not in the labor force has risen to an all time high, there was a huge loss of jobs in the 24-54-age range and in 20% of American families no one works, and the majority of jobs being created are low wage, part time and temporary jobs.

Then we can look to the growing number of scandals besides the ignoring of our immigration laws; IRS targeting of Americans, Fast and Furious, the NSA spying on Americans, the spying on the conservative media and their sources, the lack of reporting by the left leaning media, the negotiating with terrorists and trading of 5 Taliban leaders for one deserter, the drawing of red lines in the sand , the crisis in Ukraine and Crimea, Russia, the questionable deals with Iran, the constant political correctness forced on all Americans, the constant regulations placed on small business, the failed website and lies around Obamacare, the accusations of working Americans never paying their fair share, the demonization of anyone who disagrees with the current agenda, the War on Coal, the government takeover of American lands, the Climate Change lies, the over-reaching of the EPA and the FCC, the killing of Christians across the globe, the constant attack on our Constitution,  and you have to ask yourselves, ”is this the fundamental transformation that President Obama promised?

Amnesty-6, Sovereignty-0

 

 

score-board-2-165334-s copy

Immigration reform, deportation laws, border security, pathways to citizenship, illegal aliens…….All very descriptive words concerning a very controversial issue involving the current 11-15 million non US citizens here in the United States illegally and the millions of those outside the US wanting to become citizens.

This is the type of issue that can define a Presidency or tear one down, and an issue that has been passed down year after year after year from Democrat to Republican and back to Democrat. What has been done to solve the debate? Where do our leaders stand on the issue? Where do the American people stand on the issue? What can we do to finally solve this raging debate and finally have some peace?

Let’s go back to the Carter administration. I’m not saying that this is when the debate actually started, but for time constraints, we will begin in 1977.

Jimmy Carter, a Democrat, released his plan for addressing immigration.

-Stiff civil fines and criminal prosecution for employers with repeat offenses of hiring undocumented immigrants .

-Social security was to be used as the official document to verify eligibility for employment

Increase in the patrol  and security of the southern border with Mexico

-Amnesty program granting permanent residence for all undocumented immigrants in the US prior to 1970.

Although a gallop poll showed that 72% of Americans favored penalties for businesses and employers that hired illegals, many more were not in favor of granting amnesty to 3-6 million immigrants. His plan failed.

Jumping on to Ronald Reagan, a conservative Republican, who said,

“Anybody who’s here illegally is going to be abused in some way, either financially or physically. they have no rights.”

In a Presidential debate with Democrat Walter Mondale in 1984, Reagan said,

“I believe in the idea of amnesty for those who have put down roots and lived here, even though sometime back they may have entered illegally.”

In 1986 President Reagan signed a sweeping immigration reform bill into law, “Reagan’s 1986 Immigration Reform and Control Act.”

There would be tighter border security and employers would face strict penalties for hiring undocumented workers. The bill also gave amnesty to any immigrant who had entered into the United States illegally. The bill was passed by both Houses,  but, as expected there was a great amount of controversy over the passage of the bill. It was not the amnesty that created such a stir, but the fact that the sanctions on employers hiring undocumented workers was stripped from the bill. The law granted amnesty to nearly 3 million immigrants.

Between 1986 and 1998, Congress increased the Border Patrol’s budget six fold and yet over that time the number of undocumented immigrants in the US doubled, and security at the border has remained unchanged.

Since the passing of Reagan’s Immigration Reform and Control Act, 6 million illegal aliens have received amnesty in the United States. In 1994 a temporary rolling amnesty for an additional  578,000 aliens was added to the law and President Clinton twice signed continuing resolutions to extend the expiration date for those receiving amnesty and Congress again extended it for a third time.

In 1997 we had the NACARA (Nicaraguan Adjustment and Central American Relief Act). This was a program for Nicaraguans, Cubans, Salvadorans, Guatelmalans and Eastern Europeans. It granted amnesty to all those who lived in the US illegally since 1995 along with spouses and unmarried children.

In 1998 the HRIFA Amnesty Act, (The Haitian Refugee Immigration Fairness Act), was an amnesty program for Haitians who had been in the US a since 1995 along with their spouses and unmarried children.

The late Amnesty of 2000 was an agreement between Bill Clinton and Trent Lott which granted amnesty to all illegals who had been a part of lawsuits and did not receive amnesty under the 1986 law.

Then in 2000 we had the LIFE Act Amnesty. This was passed for those who missed the 1986 extension of amnesty.

In March of 2002, President Bush and the House passed  a bill that allowed amnesty for 8 to 12 million illegal immigrants by the margin of one vote in the House. There was a lot of controversy over the bill. Most felt it sent an unmistakable message:

“America is a country of saps, whose leaders will trade national sovereignty for a little Latin lovin’ at the polls. If you can make it past the border patrol and hang on for a few years, you too can be amnestied. Then you can send for the rest of your family.”

A former Democratic congresswoman, the late Barbara Jordon, who chaired a presidential immigration commission in the 1990’s, put the matter in the proper context,

“Immigration is not a right guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution to everyone and anyone in the world who wishes to come to the United States. It is a privilege granted by the people of the United States and to those whom we choose to admit.”

Some felt that Bush granted amnesty to so many for “greed” and “lust” for power as well as the need for new voters. Sam Francis, a nationally syndicated columnist wrote in 2002,

“Neither the safety of Americans from terrorism and crime nor respect for the laws that the illegal aliens violated to come here were the least concern to the Bush administration or those who voted as it directed this week. Their sole concern was for cheap labor which profits are heaped and cheap votes from which power is built.”

In 2004 President Bush proposed a new temporary worker program for new illegal immigrants in the country. There were mixed reactions. Some called it another amnesty, some thought it would affect the wages of domestic workers, others thought it encouraged illegal immigration flows because the border control and interior enforcement was inadequate. The bill did not pass.

There have been various bills proposed by both Republicans and Democrats since, none with any success.

In 2004, credible estimates of undocumented  immigrants living in the United States range from 8-15 million.

In 2005, the House passed bill HR 4437. This bill, the Border Protection, Antiterrorism and Illegal Immigration Control Act of 2006, sought to criminalize undocumented workers in the United States by making unauthorized entry an “aggravated felony.” The legislation also made provisions to erect a 700 mile long fence along the US- Mexico border. However, the demonstrations that followed were some of the most significant public opposition to federal legislation since the civil rights movement of the 1960’s. The bill did not pass the Senate.

Democrats tend to focus on worker programs and Republicans tend to focus on stricter controls. Interestingly enough, polls indicate that the majority of Republicans, Independents and Democrats favor both.

In 2008, then Senator Obama voted for the Senate immigration overhaul bill to strengthen border controls, create a guest worker program and legalize millions of foreign workers. He also supported the Secure Fence Act and co-sponsored a bill to allow states to offer illegal immigrants in-state tuition.

In 2006, Congress passed the “Secure Fence Act,” which called for a double tier fence to be built along 700 miles of the border. But a year later, Senators slipped language into a spending bill to water the requirement down.

President Obama made a speech in El Paso back in 2011 and declared,

“The fence along the border with Mexico is basically complete!” “We have gone above and beyond what was requested by the very Republicans who said they supported broader reform as long as we got serious about enforcement.” They’ll want  a higher fence, maybe they’ll need a moat. Maybe they’ll want alligators in the moat. They’ll never be satisfied. I understand that. That’s politics!”

On the same day as Obama’s speech, Jim DeMint for the National Review said,

“Five years ago legislation was passed to build a 700 mile double layer fence along the southwest border. This is a promise that has not been kept. Today, according to staff at the Department of Homeland Security, just 5% of the fencing is complete….36.3 miles.”

Homeland Security Secretary, Janet Napolitano claimed in April of 2013, that the border was more secure than ever. But figures released by Customs and Border Protection say arrests were actually up 13% compared with the same time the previous year.

Representative Chaffetz of Utah, traveled to the border and found multiple spots where you could see trails of people coming in. They were still apprehending massive amounts of drugs out there. Texas was seeing a 53% increase in arrests  in the Rio Grande,  22% increase in the Laredo and 24% increase in El Paso.  This increase came at a time when Congress was preparing to debate immigration legislation, which is expected to include amnesty for millions of illegal immigrants already here. The provision is expected to entice even more to cross into the States. According to the Accountability Office, up to 50% of those who make it over never get caught. So, once again, more amnesty is offered up and in exchange we do not get the 700 mile, double tiered fence to protect the borders that we, the American people, were promised. No tracking system has been put into place to control those who come and over stay their Visas.  Once again, Amnesty 6 going on 7, Sovereignty – 0.

To make matter worse,  Immigration officials knowingly, under Obama’s instruction, released 36,000 immigrants from custody back into the United States in 2013.

The WORST PRISON BREAK in the History of the US! Who was released?
116 murderers, 228 Kidnappers, 426 rapists, 1,317 convicted of domestic assault, 1,317 convicted of domestic violence, 1,724 convicted of weapon offenses, 2,104 for obstructing police, 9,187 convicted for dangerous drugs, 15,635 for drunken driving, 47 arsonists, 14 convicted of voluntary homicide, 17,228 convicted traffic offenders, 2,394 convicted of fraud, and more!  So now all these criminals are free to wander the US among the American citizens!
The Obama administration also claimed it was deporting the largest number of illegals than any other administration. However, upon looking closer, it was discovered the numbers were being falsely used to make Americans believe that border and illegal immigration was under control. In fact deportations under Obama are at the lowest levels since 1973.
So, in effect, President Obama was not telling the truth during his speech mocking Republicans and continues to mislead the American people.
What do the American people believe?
-70% believe the borders should be secured BEFORE granting amnesty.
-67% believe the border is not secure
-59% believe the policies of government encourage illegal immigration
-81% oppose granting in-state tuition to illegals
-61% believe there would be less poverty if laws were enforced
-72% believe parents should prove citizenship to register kids in school
-67% believe police should check legal status at traffic stops
-66% support strict sanctions on employers who hire illegals
-67% believe illegals are a cost burden on the US taxpayer
-88% believe more federal law enforcement is needed on borders
-75% believe that voter ID’s should be required to ensure only citizens vote
-80% believe that Illegal Immigrants should not get taxpayer-funded healthcare
President Obama recently made a major announcement that all deportation laws would not be used against those undocumented workers applying for Obamacare/Affordable Healthcare Act.  Therefore promoting free healthcare to those here illegally and paid for by the American taxpayer. Should undocumented immigrants be allowed to use public services paid for by the taxpayer?
Are Democrats using amnesty to gather more votes? It seems this is one of the positive outcomes for the left and the right, depending on who is in control of the Executive Office.  Isn’t it time to get politics out of immigration and get back to the basics of dealing with this issue?
In researching  for this article, I found that the majority of Americans are open to a path to citizenship, but want the government to uphold their responsibility to protect the sovereignty of the United States. We all know that the U.S. is the melting pot of the world, and immigrants have been a part of our country from the beginning. However, like other countries, we must protect our borders.  Those who complain that the US has not done enough for illegal immigrants, have not done their homework. Amnesty has been granted over and over again. Yet amnesty seems to breed more amnesty with no end in sight. Yet, without border control, a Visa tracking system, an improved economy and increased job creation, I do not see Immigration reform in our future, at least not condoned by the majority of Americans.
So, President Obama, get busy fulfilling your end of the bargain, so the healing can begin. Americans do not want to look at the scoreboard in 2014 and see:
Amnesty – 7……..Sovereignty – 0
