Immigration is in the news, and legislation is being proposed that relies on the Obama administration to execute, in good faith, the nation’s laws. But the Obama administration doesn’t do that. Instead, the administration arrogantly ignores laws it doesn’t like, in violation of Barack Obama’s constitutional duty to “take care that the laws be faithfully executed.” This is most notoriously the case with respect to immigration and welfare. We have written about this on several occasions; Jeff Sessions, ranking member on the Senate Budget Committee, sums up the administration’s sorry history in a press release
I think it´s important to be able to prove you can support yourself and that´s how it used to be. I did not have a sponsor when I applied to the U.S.A. for a work visa in 1954--I was young (22) and had no doubt I could get a job but (embarassingly) I had to go to my banker and entreat him to write to the American authorities to vouch for me on the basis of a set of sterling silver flatware that I owned! Can you imagine such a thing today?!!!
Maybe it´s just time to do away with the stupid pretense of the oath of office.Obama has taken the oath 4 times now and has become more anti-constitution with each passing day. Here we are revving up gun laws on people minding their own business while the criminal element in this country has never had it so good. That goes from wall st crooks down the street hustling thugs,there´s no room in jail for anymore.
A lot of big famous companies were founded and built by conservative people but because of sellouts and mergers,the formally successful companies are now being ran by Ivy League grads who don´t understand the first thing about business except if they´re slick enough,there´s a nice year end bonus for them.
Even the ones who want to play by the rules are being forced by Obama regulation thugs and trail lawyers into doing the wrong things,such as making bad home loans,which are back again.
Everytime one of these loans fail there´s a hedge fund crook or derivative schemer that cashes in The home buyers are dupes intended to enrich crooked liberals down the line.
But anyway,now Obama is enticing more illegal immigration with the lure of free healthcare on top of food stamps and the rest.
Obama has the gall to claim the border is already secure,even though their own figures show 30% of border bangers are making it through.They´re trying to get in here before amnesty is imposed and they won´t have to worry about being deported.
All they have to do is make it a felony to break in here and that would disqualify them from many gov´t benefits and be thrown in jail instead.
With a totally corrupt DOJ and Press under his thumb Obama can do whatever he pleases. Unless the GOP members of the House and Senate are willing to take him on he will remain an out of control monster. D.C. Democrats must be scared witless of him.
That is exactly the point Rush made following his Rubio interview. The pResident is lawless so any plan will not work while Obama is in office. Rubio made the point that Obama won´t always be in office several times during the interview. Although Rush was very skeptical about the plan what he likes about Rubio is his passion and his ability to express his ideas clearly. He is also young and the GOP definitely needs new, young blood to carry on in the future.
This foreign resident of the WH is unqualified for holding the most important office in our land. He is a fraud, an enemy, and a usurper who is dismantling our America as the legislative and judicial branches look on, as if they´re powerless, indifferent, or complicit. How did we get to this stage?
This skinny, Kenyan, choom-smoker, is like an unruly, undisciplined child left to throw temper tantrums and wreak havoc in someone else´s home without consequence.
Oh, how I dream that the truth about him being revealed and seeing that smug look on his face wiped away as he´s prosecuted for his crimes against America.
History bears out that there is always a point in time when an evil agenda could be stopped. It is discussed, books and articles are written about it asking why the people did not see it coming in order to prevent it from happening. We analyze it because we don´t ever want it to happen in the future. However, I fear we have passed the point in time when this Obamination could be stopped. There has been opportunity after opportunity to stop this but it seems to keep barreling on. Each time I think it can´t get worse, it does. I believe it is going to take divine intervention to stop Obama because my confidence in the elected officials in Washington DC is gone.
I think many can see the Great American Experiment slipping away. What was borne of Europe is returning to its roots. The discrediting of the founders and the Constitution is a major part of today´s curriculum. Young people have no clue. What is being lost is the Horatio Alger version of the American Dream as well as the notion of E pluribus unum. In it´s place a strange Balkanization based on race and sense of entitlement.
Benjamin Franklin said it best... “Well, Doctor, what have we got, a Republic or a Monarchy?”
# 5 Other than making speeches railing against his policies and lax or non enforcement of federal laws, Republicans don´t have many options. Everything the decreased Republican majority in the House passes , like budgets that cut spending- Reid ignores. The Democrats 10 seat majority in the Senate is an incredible protection and shield for Obama. Plus, the national media continues to protect him and cover up his lawless behavior. The 2014 midterm elections in 21 months should scare us all. Obama only needs to flip 17 more seats in the House to retake control of that body. If he then totally controls Congress, the presidency and the media , it will be like his first two years -only on steroids.
I long for the day when the Obama trial is being televised and the lawyers are dragging out all of his henchmen to testify for and against him. I could write a list of the kenyan witch´s flying monkeys here but I would go over the word limit.
This is precisely why I cannot stand Marco Rubio. He is neither stupid nor naive, but apparently thinks all the rest of us are.
Rubio insists that amnesty will be conditioned upon first securing the border. But we all know Obama has a history, outlined in this article, of ignoring and refusing to enforce the laws he doesn´t like. Rubio knows very well, just like we do, that the Obama administration will just declare the border secure (oh, right, they already did that), ignore any such condition, and proceed directly to handing out amnesty cards.
The only way immigration can be responsibly addressed is to secure the border first, now, with no strings and no related legislation. There should not even be a discussion of amnesty until the border is as close as possible to 100% locked down. Then, in a couple years after the construction has been completed, we can begin to discuss what to do with all the illegals that are here.
Rubio must think Republicans and conservatives are the stupidest, most gullible beings on the face of the planet. I trust him about as far as I can throw 100 miles of border fence.
Any new immigration reform will work just like it does now, fence or not. The law abiding will wait years to enter and will not have a chance at a job when/if they do because there will be no jobs. The ones who break the law will work underground or join drug and prostitution enterprises, just like they do now. The only way to ever get control is to round up and sentence all illegals to 1-2 years hard labor (not prison) and then deport them. Then make them eligible to go to the end of the line and re-apply the legal way. I don´t care how many children they have, the children can go with them. Their friends in Mexico will get the message. Then tell the Mexican government that we will cut off all aid and ban US tourism to Mexico until they start to control border crossing from their side.
Tell me one other country that is as generous with its taxpayer´s financial support of immigrants outside of the euroweenie nations.
This is getting old. The country KNOWS what Obama does skirts around the edges of the law and the constitution. We the choir are tired if being preached to. The choir wants to know, what can be done? Voting doesn´t seem to be effective any more.
Pop quiz. With whom is the U.S. presently at war? At any other time in our nation’s history most Americans could have readily answered that question. Great Britain. Mexico. Spain. Germany. North Korea. North Vietnam. Iraq. Even college students who couldn’t name the vice president or their state’s governor would know who their non-college-material buddies were being sent overseas to kill or be killed by. These days the world is a bit more complicated. There are the easy answers: the Taliban. Al Qaeda. Then the waters get a bit murky. One might justifiably ask if America is at war with Syria,
Sandra Fluke keeps sending me e-mails. Okay, these e-mails don’t actually contain the type of Weiner-esque Democratic electronic solicitations that are suitable for disclosure only on “The Dirty.” But her messages could be considered provocative. In her latest e-mail, she said she wants me to meet her for a “chat” in San Francisco. Actually, her e-mails are all about money. With a pretentiousness so blatant it’s entertaining, Fluke is trying to convince me to give money to Democratic candidates. Political fundraising is a permanent exercise and, obviously, lists are not always properly culled.
Life in Maine, where Stephen King has spent most of his adult years, requires long drives down country roads, time that King, whose mind is restless, likes to fill by listening to books on tape. In the ’80s, however, he sometimes could not find the books he wanted on tape — or maybe he just did not bother. He had three children: Naomi, Joe and Owen. They could read, couldn’t they? All King had to do was press record. Which is how his school-age children came to furnish their father, over the years, with a small library’s worth of books
John Kerry says he can get an Israeli-Palestinian peace agreement within nine months that would lead to an independent Palestinian state. That’s ambitious to be sure, but Kerry’s optimism raises a key question: With Syria torn by civil war, Egypt in the midst of a meltdown that may lead to another Arab civil war, and the Iranian nuclear program still the region’s major strategic threat, why is the secretary of state pushing the Israeli-Palestinian peace process? Perhaps with everyone else in the region tied down fighting for vital interests or mere survival, John Kerry imagines he has a unique opportunity
Texas has done a lot of good for this country: the King Ranch and Texas-style chili. Dr. Pepper and the Dallas Cowboy cheerleaders. Rick Perry and Ted Cruz. Patrick Swayze. Texas also gave America Sheila Jackson Lee. So let’s call it even. Since 1995, Jackson Lee (D.) has represented Texas’s 18th congressional district, which comprises much of inner-city Houston. Now at least one group on Capitol Hill is eyeing her for higher office: The Congressional Black Caucus is recommending that Jackson Lee replace Janet Napolitano as secretary of the Department of Homeland Security.
Several Republicans have become concerned recently about the possibility of intensified intra-party fighting over the effort to defund Obamacare. The topic came up Wednesday when GOP Sen. Ted Cruz, a leader in the defunding effort, appeared on Laura Ingraham’s radio program. At about 6:30 in the interview, Ingraham asked Cruz about the phrase “surrender caucus” that some have used to describe the Republicans who oppose the defunding effort. Cruz told Ingraham that he has never used the phrase himself to describe his opponents in the defunding debate. Cruz explained that his chief of staff, Chip Roy, did use the phrase,
To compete with those indelible images of Anthony Weiner’s erect penis, the New York City mayoral campaign now has new mental picture: the slutbag. That’s what Weiner spokeswoman Barbara Morgan called an intern with the campaign who had quit and written a tell-all for the New York Daily News. Olivia Nuzzi described the campaign as a adrift, Morgan as unqualified, and fellow interns as only taking on the assignment to get in good with Weiner wife and Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin. And that’s not all Morgan called Nuzzi in a conversation with a reporter for Talking Points Memo
President Barack Obama is planning to bypass congressional Republicans with a surge of executive actions and orders on issues like voting rights, health care, job creation, the economy, climate change and immigration. And this time, he really, really, really means it. Really. Obama’s started to sell his pitch to congressional Democrats, meeting with caucus groups at the White House and going to the Hill on Wednesday morning to speak with House and Senate Democrats. “I have to figure out what I can do outside of Congress through executive actions,” Obama told the Congressional Black Caucus earlier this month,
Voter identification laws have Democrats up in arms. One of the reasons, as Nate Cohn illustrated last week, is that they disproportionately affected non-white and Democratic voters in North Carolina. This effect, however, only would have padded Romney´s lead in the state by 0.5pt to 0.8pt. In other words, it would only have made a difference in the tightest of elections, and North Carolina isn´t close to being the state that determines the winner in presidential elections. If Democrats want to be upset about something, they should turn their attention to felon and ex-felon voting restrictions.
A nthony Weiner´s mayoral campaign has imploded. But before a raft of new revelations about Weiner´s post-Congress sexting misadventures, he had a real chance of becoming the next mayor of New York City. In the meantime, Eliot Spitzer — Weiner´s fellow New Yorker, whose fall from grace was also well-documented — still has a good shot at becoming the city´s next comptroller. Despite their baggage, both men began their campaigns with a headstart on the competition. That headstart was provided not because they showed an aptitude for success in their previous political positions.
CLEVELAND – Three women held captive in a run-down home for a decade kept diaries documenting the horrific physical and sexual abuse they suffered on a daily basis, prosecutors said Wednesday. The women´s kidnapper, Ariel Castro, lured one of them into his Cleveland home with the promise of a puppy for her son and later locked all of them in a vehicle in his garage for three days when someone visited him, prosecutors said. Castro, a former school bus driver, claimed he didn´t have an exit strategy from his complicated double life and finally gave the women
WASHINGTON -- President Barack Obama´s national security team acknowledged for the first time Wednesday that, when investigating one suspected terrorist, it can read and store the phone records of millions of Americans. Since it was revealed recently that the National Security Agency puts the phone records of every American into a database, the Obama administration has assured the nation that such records are rarely searched and, when they are, officials target only suspected international terrorists. Meanwhile, at a hacker convention in Las Vegas on Wednesday, the head of the NSA said government methods used to collect telephone
Mark Levin, who hosts one of America´s top radio talk shows and is considered by supporters to be the people´s pundit on the Constitution, is rallying his 8.5 million-strong audience to demand an historic convention of state governments to halt the "oppressive power" of the federal government. The author of two New York Times bestsellers on the threats to the Constitution, Levin hopes his latest, "The Liberty Amendments," out mid-August, will spark the state lawmakers to tap a rarely used Constitutional provision to institute measures that would brake President Obama´s use of executive orders, bar thousand-page laws and
The former commander of special operations in Northern Africa told a closed-door briefing today that he was largely detached from events the night of the Benghazi attack as he was traveling at the time. The testimony of Col. George H. Bristol, USMC, Former Commander, Joint Special Operations Task Force-Trans Sahara, Marine Corps Forces Special Operations Command Africa, had been eagerly anticipated by members of Congress. Originally, lawmakers had been told by the Defense Department that he had retired — the actual date is Aug. 1, an “administrative error” according to the Pentagon — and that they didn’t have
FORNEY, Texas - George Zimmerman, the former Florida neighborhood watch leader cleared of all charges in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin, was pulled over for speeding in North Texas on Sunday, CBS DFW reports. According to the station, Zimmerman was armed when officers pulled him over on Highway 80 in Forney, east of Dallas. (Snip) The officer reportedly did not recognize Zimmerman, who was driving a Honda pickup. Zimmerman told the officer he was armed and was then told to put the weapon in his glove compartment, according to the station.
Arizona Sen. John McCain was the Republican Party´s 2008 presidential nominee and he still wants the keys to the Oval Office. But he is beginning to sound more like a fan of likely 2016 Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. "She´s a rock star," he said in a newly released interview. "She has, maybe not glamour, but certainly the aura of someone widely regarded throughout the world," he added in a reference to her work as secretary of State. McCain, reportedly trying to win back his reputation as a GOP maverick, was asked by the New Republic
President Obama has been rolling up his sleeves campaigning across the country delivering a surreal stump speech message supposedly aimed at the middle class: big government works, Obamacare is manna from heaven, the wave of recent scandals are “phony” figments of the imagination, and all economic problems are the fault of the Republicans. Conveniently, he leaves out the bankruptcy of Detroit, a city run by his own party for more than half a century. His message is so stale and unconvincing, that even The New York Times and Washington Post have noticed. Both papers, usually loyal to Obama, remarked that
Gotta figure her lead would be even bigger without Joe Miller in the field here. Her nomination for the taking? Alaska should be a top tier pick up opportunity for Senate Republicans next year…but their top choice of a candidate is Sarah Palin. 36% of GOP primary voters in the state say they’d like Palin to be their standard bearer against Mark Begich to 26% for Mead Treadwell, 15% for Dan Sullivan, and 12% for Joe Miller.
Serial sexter Anthony Weiner’s wife partly blamed herself last year when her horndog husband confessed to her that he was at it again. Friends and family told People magazine that Huma Abedin was kicking herself at the time for bailing out of couples counseling and focusing more on their newborn baby boy. But, thanks to a new round of joint therapy that continues even now, the couple was able to put the relapse behind them. “They really became a unit, and she feels much closer to Anthony now,” a relative told the magazine. That’s a long way from how Abedin
Embattled Internal Revenue Service official Lois Lerner and an attorney in the Federal Election Commission’s general counsel’s office appear to have twice colluded to influence the record before the FEC’s vote in the case of a conservative non-profit organization, according to e-mails unearthed by the House Ways and Means Committee and obtained exclusively by National Review Online. The correspondence suggests the discrimination of conservative groups extended beyond the IRS and into the FEC, where an attorney from the agency’s enforcement division in at least one case sought and received tax information about the status of a conservative group,
Sen. John McCain — a Democrat? There was confusion Wednesday after the Arizona Republican mistakenly strolled into President Obama’s meeting with Senate Democrats at the Capitol. The room full of Democrats — who happened to be meeting in the same room where the Senate GOP usually holds their weekly policy luncheons — erupted in applause and laughter as the former Republican presidential candidate made his entrance. As McCain, 76, walked out of the Dem-filled space, reporters pressed him as to why he stepped foot in the room.
In an interview on National Public Radio (NPR), House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said her new agenda for women will give mothers access to day care so they can “earn without carrying the burden of child care.” During the interview, aired on Weekend Edition Sunday, Pelosi spoke about her newly announced agenda, which is on her website, and is titled, “When Women Succeed, America Succeeds: An Economic Agenda for Women and Families,” a plan that includes universal pre-school and access to day care for working women, and an increase in the minimum wage.
In preparation for the release of Oscar-bait film The Butler, Forest Whitaker, Oprah Winfrey, and director Lee Daniels (Precious) sat down with Parade magazine. The film chronicles a butler (Whitaker) who works in the White House through seven administrations. Winfrey plays the butler’s wife. In the interview, Winfrey explained her sadness that so few Americans know about the history of the civil rights movement: “They don’t know diddly-squat. Diddly-squat.” She then said of the historic use of the n-word, “I always think of the millions of people who heard that as their last
In her first speech since taking over the Environmental Protection Agency, Gina McCarthy came out swinging Tuesday and promised to ramp up the aggressive climate change agenda laid out by President Obama.(snip)“Can we stop talking about environmental regulations killing jobs? Please, at least for today,” she said during remarks at Harvard Law School. “We need to cut carbon pollution to grow jobs. We need to cut carbon pollution to strengthen the economy. Let’s talk about it positively. Let’s approach this as an opportunity of a lifetime. There are too many lifetimes at stake.”
