The people in Congress talk a good game but it is all talk. Democrats claim that border security is important but then do everything to keep it from happening and Republicans pretend to be tough but care little about it. The overall goal, as it was in past illegal immigration debates, is to talk tough about security in order to grant amnesty. In the last two debates on the issue we were promised that once amnesty was granted the border would be secured and we would not need to worry about the issue again.
There will be no more illegals we were told.
And now there are upwards of 20 million who are, like those illegals before them, on a path to amnesty.
Senator Chuck Schumer of New York has made the bold claim that the bill the Senate is working on will solve the immigration problem and secure the border.
Let me translate. Solve the immigration problem does not mean solve the problem of them coming here illegally. We have seen that this is not the case based on the last two immigration reforms. What Schumer means is that it will solve the immigration problem for Democrats because now more immigrants will be on the dole and voting Democrat.
Schumer’s claim that the border will be secured is negated by his next statement. In the article he is quoted as saying that border security measures will be maintained. Then he goes on to say that the Gang of Eight will not compromise by conditioning the path to citizenship on factors that might not happen, as in border security.
You see, he says the border will be secured but then says there should be no condition for border security because once they make millions of lawbreakers legal they will not care about border security.
Why would they? How can rich Republicans get cheap labor to care for their lawns and build homes and how can Democrats get millions of new voters if they close the border? They need a pool of new laborers and voters from which to draw.
We have been promised that the border would be secure and that there would no longer be an illegal immigrant problem since they started granting amnesty in the 1960s. Each time millions of lawbreakers receive a free gift and their crimes are absolved as they bring in more and more family members and take jobs while the border remains wide open inviting millions more illegals who hide until the next amnesty.
It is all a sham. They have no intention of securing the border. They only want to pander to people who should not be here.
The border security issue should be a separate bill. Pass it and implement it while debating the immigration issue. This way the border gets secured and that security is not held hostage to the political posturing of both parties.
And while we are at it let’s make it a felony to be here illegally. Let’s make sure it is a felony to get caught crossing the border illegally AND a felony to be here illegally.
I am waiting for a border state to pass legislation that makes it a felony to be in the state illegally and thus bypass the federal government all together. Since the feds claim only they can enforce the immigration laws of the country the states should enforce immigration laws for their state. Pass legislation that says if you are in the state illegally (which means in the country illegally and then in the state) you are not allowed to stay. They should be arrested for illegal entry into the state and then deported to a sanctuary city. Funny how sanctuary cities are a clear violation of the law but the Obama Regime does not go after them.
That should tell you their intent…
In any event, whatever they come up with will screw citizens while rewarding illegals with welfare.
And pricks like Schumer will bask in the glow of new Democrat voters as more and more cross the border. In 10 years Schumer (if he is still alive) will be screaming about immigration reform and the need to do something and how we will never have to do it again.
It is the same song we have been hearing for decades.
Never surrender, never submit.
It is no secret that Obama panders to the illegal community. He has enacted his version of the DREAM Act via Executive Order, he has ignored their presence in the country and he has sued a sovereign state to keep that state from enacting and enforcing immigration laws that are EXACTLY LIKE THE FEDERAL LAWS.
Obama does not look at illegals as being here in violation of the law. He looks at them as Democrat voters. They are no problem to him and his party because they are viewed as people who deserve a chance and, well, if they happen to vote Democrat that is all the better.
Obama has no issue with illegals being here because he can feel a kinship with them in that none of them have their papers.
Obama tells us not to worry and that these folks are no problem. According to a report from the House Judiciary Committee:
Those who could have been deported but were released later went on to commit the 19 murders, 3 attempted murders and 142 sex crimes, the Judiciary Committee said
Those crimes could have been prevented (like the murder of our Border Patrol Agent and hundreds of Mexicans by Fast and Furious could have been prevented) but Obama chose to ignore the law. Democrats are perfectly happy with the catch and release program and keeping illegals here. In fact, they are upset at programs that would deport those here illegally:
Many Democrats say it [Secure Communities program] casts its net too wide, which means illegal immigrants who have committed relatively minor offenses could be deported.
If they are here illegally then they committed a crime that is not relatively minor and they should be deported.
While Americans are subject to violent crimes committed by people Obama allows to stay here illegally he is protected from the violence by a large number of armed guards.
Never surrender, never submit.

It is no secret that Barack Obama has little regard for the Constitution. He thinks it puts up to many barriers to redistributive change (taking from one to give to another). He believes that there should not only be a level playing field (everyone has the same chance) but that outcomes should be equal. This is one of the things Socialists like and they particularly like the part where they live like kings while the rest of the population lives in poverty.
So there is little regard for the Constitution, no surprise there. Democrats do not like the thing because it makes it harder for them to run roughshod over us.
Eric Holder, the lawless Attorney General, made a speech today discussing voting rights. He was with the head of the NAACP in South Carolina where the US has blocked voter laws. Yes, the US has blocked ID laws because Democrats think it will discriminate against voters (OK, they think Democrat voters or they would not care). They might have a point, illegals are voting in our elections. This is the Democrat voting base so yes, laws would discriminate against them but not in a bad way. They are not allowed to vote.
This is what laws are for and this is one of the reasons states are getting tougher. They are doing it because the system is broken and is wide open for fraud despite what the morons in DC say. The regime knows that it is in deep stuff and that it needs every vote it can get, legal or otherwise, in order to win. Voter laws that improve the integrity of the system are a barrier that the regime does not like. Then again, integrity is not a strong point of these people (and by these people I mean Democrats).
To Democrats the Constitution is a document of convenience. If it suits their purpose they will use it and if it does not they will ignore it.
Eric Holder does not even know the thing. He filed suit in a federal court to block Arizona’s immigration law but the Constitution clearly states that the Supreme Court has original jurisdiction when any state is a party.
Article III, Sec. 2, clause 2 says:
In all Cases affecting Ambassadors, other public Ministers and Consuls, and those in which a State shall be Party, the supreme Court shall have original Jurisdiction. In all the other Cases before mentioned, the supreme Court shall have appellate Jurisdiction…
From an article in Canada Free Press. Bold as appears in the article.
This regime is lawless and will do whatever it can get away with in order to push its agenda of making America a Socialist nation. Many Americans are too blind or too deluded to see this but those who lived under an oppressive government can see what is going on. Russian immigrants are not thrilled with Democrats and are flocking to the GOP.
The states need to push back against the tyranny of the federal government. States need to enact whatever voting laws they desire and take the feds to court if they interfere. Arizona needs to continue with its immigration laws and ignore the court that decided against the state because that court and its judge had no Constitutional authority to act.
It is time for the states to take control and to put the federal government and the Obama regime in their place.
Never surrender, never submit.

The Obama regime is granting amnesty by fiat and allowing illegals the regime deems pose no threat to national security to stay in the US. It is bad enough that the government refuses to secure our borders and prevent people from walking in but now it is allowing those it catches to continue on as if they broke no laws.
I know the argument. These poor folks are children of people who came here illegally. They had no choice in the matter and they grew up here so why send them away? Because they are here illegally. Not to mention that those who are not adults are kept here and their parents then stay so we do not split up the families.
The Congress has been fiddling with legislation to address illegal immigration and it has been stalled in Congress for quite some time. Let’s face it, Democrats don’t want to lose their voting base.
So instead of allowing the process, as slow as it is, to work things out, the Obama regime has just decided to bypass Congress and do what it wants via fiat.
This should come as no surprise. Obama and his regime do not like the Constitution and these people do not like the constraints placed on them. They have an agenda to push and they will not let the law of the land get in the way.
This, of course, is a move to placate illegal immigrants and their support groups before the next election. Obama made a ton of promises to his illegal supporters and he has been unable to fulfill them so he is bypassing Congress in order to appease those who have no say in things. He is shoring up his base so he can get the Hispanic vote.
This moron is playing politics with our sovereignty and our national security in order to get votes.
How is it that this guy claims to love America and then pushes on to fundamentally transform her? If you love her why does she need fundamental transformation?
The only conclusion is that he hates America as it is and will not be happy until his Socialist dreams are realized.
Maybe they need to organize a flash mob on DC and get rid of all the dead wood…
Never surrender, never submit.

Today’s word definitions and misnomers, in no particular order.
Our current state of affairs and use of language often cause me to ponder. Most recently, maybe we’re all pondering the criminal justice system. Maybe the lesson of the Orlando jury’s verdict is that we are too used to being lied to?
Raise the debt ceiling – What ceiling? It’s always being raised. It’s not like the glass ceiling that you couldn’t break. This one is flexible. Government makes its own rules. Let’s try that at home, folks. When we’re in debt, we’ll raise our credit line. That will work!
Rich is defined today as evil and highly taxable. I’ve even heard the rich called lucky and lazy—Wrong! Do you remember when rich was a worthwhile goal, the American dream, something positive that benefited everyone–not just the person getting rich?
Secretary of the Treasury – No, he can’t be! He wants to fix a spending problem by giving the spenders more money….to spend. He seems to have no clue that high tax rates destroy the economy or that big government (he) is the problem.
Undocumented worker – A euphemism for an illegal immigrant who is illegally hired by an unlawful employer.
Immigration – Currently this term is used by the media to represent everyone that is here from another country, completely ignoring the status of the immigrant. We continuously hear the word immigration when the talking heads are really speaking about illegal immigration. Illegals are not American citizens – they cost American citizens billions of dollars.
Which conjures up another term:
Homeland Security – At the same time that we citizens (including 95-yr old Grannie) are being abused, humiliated and “felt-up” in airports by TSA employees, we like to think no radical terrorists are slipping in our porous border on the south along with that stream of illegals.
Green jobs – Where are they, again? GE sure got some green – zero tax liability. Consumers and taxpayers will lose lots of green over green jobs.
Environmental Protection Agency – Extort Peoples’ Assets (When Al Gore pitches a tent and rides a bike, we shall consider that he is correct.)
Employee Free Choice Act – Complete irony for coercion to vote “yes” for the unions = no free choice.
Stimulus Package – This incredibly obvious misnomer is actually very apropos–it stimulated government waste and the national debt.
Economist – Where is the administration official who has any business experience and has ‘economist’ on his resume? An economist ought to know how business works, not how government works. Oh, sorry, I forgot…government does not work. Unlike business, government can spend ad nauseum, print more money and still stay “in business.”
The Federal Reserve – We are learning to suspect anything labeled “federal” and sure don’t think we have a “reserve.” A supposed smart economist says, “We don’t have a precise read on why this slower pace of growth is persisting.” Here’s just one clue why (or, the reality I see): We’ve become a socialistic society and economy with leadership that encourages class warfare and insists that government can fix everything…with more spending! We are becoming Greece and France where double digit unemployment, out of control national debt and misery are common stagnations. This slow pace is not recovery; it is socialistic stagnation.
Affirmative Action – One example of what this really meant: Your government would get to decide who gets into medical school based on race quotas. Do you want your doctor to be someone who was a good Black student or one of the smartest in his/her class…regardless of race? That really is reverse discrimination. Forget about someone’s intelligence, grade average, potential and credentials; let’s make sure the race percentages are right! Life needs to be fair! And, your government will provide the rules and regulations to make it fair!
National Education Association – Does the NEA represent education or does it represent teachers’ benefits? They’re a union, so that pretty much answers the question. Behold the huge Atlanta scandal. Can the state of California afford to pay their current teachers while they honor the previous union contracts for retired teachers’ pension and health insurance benefits? Nope! Seems NYC has same huge issues with United Federation of Teachers “Union.” Each year we hear we need to spend more on education and the school dropout rate goes up! Hello!
Here’s an individual responsibility thought to mull over: Make the parents/guardians accountable for their kids that are using our public education system: late for school twice in one month: fine the parents; no homework done twice in one class in one week: fine the parents; lack of respect for the teacher/administrator/staff member—by disrupting the class or foul language: fine the parents. Taxpayers don’t need to pay for students that don’t show up, don’t participate and behave badly!
Remember the definition of insanity. We sure have to change our ways if we expect anything to change…for the better!
