The gang of eight and all the other politicians who desire to make the shadowy illegal aliens in America instantly legal keep assuring us that once these folks are out of the shadows they will not receive welfare. In case you live in a cave someplace (which is silly because you would not be reading this) welfare is paid for with tax dollars. People work hard for their money and then some of it is extorted from them by government who then hands it over to those who do not work, cannot work, or are not earning much money.
Welfare was designed to be a social safety net but it has become a wealth redistribution scheme run by the government to keep people dependent on the politicians. Vote for us and we will keep paying you with other people’s money.
There is proof that once illegals are given some sort of legal status they will get welfare. One big one is the Senators who have proclaimed that they will get the money. That pretty much indicates there is no push to ensure it does not happen.
Another good indication is that billions of dollars in taxpayer money is spent on welfare that goes to people who should not get it. People in prison are getting checks. People who are dead continue to get checks that their families are undoubtedly spending. There are billions of dollars wasted in the welfare scheme.
Another strong indication that those newly legal people will get our tax dollars is the fact that many of them are getting our tax dollars as ILLEGALS.
A woman in Florida who is in this country illegally and has been for at least 20 years is drawing $240 a month in food stamps and $700 a month in Social Security and she has been getting this money for 20 years. She is 50 years old so that means we have been supporting her since she was 30.
The amount of money she gets and whether or not she can live on it is not material to the issue. The real issue is that she is here illegally and is receiving welfare money.
How in the name of all that is holy can our government claim those illegals it deems to be legal will not get welfare money when it cannot stop the illegals from getting it? This woman is but one example that is surely repeated all across the nation. The linked article indicates that Florida has a lot of food stamp recruiters and they have a goal; to increase federal aid to Florida by a billion dollars a year.
These people are working to get folks on the welfare rolls whether they are lawfully eligible or not.
Our tax dollars are being wasted supporting people who squirt out a litter of children or bring in their families (this woman has 7 people to feed) while we work our butts off to make ends meet.
The members of Congress working on immigration reform say that tax dollars in the form of welfare will not be given to those newly legal people but we all know this is a lie.
We have a problem with illegals for two very basic facts. The first is we have an open border and we refuse to secure it. The second is we give illegals welfare. If we did not pay them our money to come here they would stay home.
It is time to tell Congress to drop all ideas of making these people legal. We need sweeping reform that includes purging all the welfare rolls of people who are here illegally. Couple this with e-verify and workplace enforcement and these people will eventually self deport.
Let’s solve the problem by making them go home rather than making them legal (thus rewarding them for their crime) and paying them to be here.
Enough is enough.
Never surrender, never submit.

There is no doubt in my mind that Democrats used dirty tricks and broke the law to win. I will say it up front so the liberals can guffaw and then click over to Kos and pleasure themselves. The evidence is clear that Barack Obama and his Democrats did things that were illegal in order to win.
Republican turn out was 3 million lower than in 2008 and Obama hit his numbers? There is no way this is accurate and given the number of complaints of voting machines changing votes from Romney to Obama the loss of Republican voters and Obama holding his own gets clearer. The votes were changed so his numbers went up and Romney’s went down.
How else can one explain internal polling that showed Romney winning battleground states by a comfortable margin? And yes, those internals showed Romney taking the major battleground states while Obama’s internals showed he needed to go to states that he should have held easily. The linked article discusses how the voting machines had been programmed so that a vote for Romney had to be exactly in the square but one for Obama was anywhere close (and just outside the Romney box). If millions of people did not check before submitting they were screwed.
Couple that with reports of people in Ohio being bused in to vote illegally (non English speaking being given pre filled cards or being shown what to select) and the intimidation in Philadelphia as well as the GOP election judges being thrown out (and one in Chicago wearing an Obama hat) and you can see the problems.
Barack Obama is illegitimate. He won because of fraud and this was his plan because he knew he would not win otherwise.
Only the naive would think that the network of Commies behind Obama (Soros and company) would not or could not do this. The reality is this was well planned and it worked. The usurper is back in office.
It is my understanding that James O’Keefe has documented hundreds of incidents of fraud and he is compiling the video. I wonder if there is any way to fix the problem once this has occurred?
I doubt it. The political class shields itself from the law.
Think this is all BS? You are (at least right now) entitled to that opinion but consider this. Obama did not win in ANY state that requires a photo ID to vote.
Is there any wonder why Democrats fight against voter ID laws? They need to cheat.
And even the UN observers commented that they could not believe the US does not require an ID to vote…
Why would it surprise them? They know how corrupt Democrats are.

No, he picked a fight…
Barack Hussein Obama (mmm, mmm, mmm) gave a Royal Proclamation yesterday in announcing that his monarchy would no longer follow the law and instead would do what it wanted. He proclaimed that illegal children who were brought here by their parents would not be deported but would instead be given a legal status, be allowed to attend college, and be given a work permit. It must be a Royal Proclamation because he has now done what he once said he did not have the power to do, thus he has become a dictator…
Obama violated the US Constitution with his decree because Article II Section 3 clearly states:
“…he [president] shall take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed…”
The law says if an illegal is captured he is to be processed and deported. Obama changed that with his Royal Proclamation and that is a violation of the Constitution, period…
The big uproar happened when a reporter interrupted Obama to ask a question. Obama got testy, wagged his finger and acted like a petulant child. I would agree that it was rude to interrupt with the question but the reporter later explained that he thought Obama had finished or was wrapping up and wanted to get his question in before he turned and went back into the White House. As it turns out, Obama addressed the question as he wrapped up but did not take any other questions.
No matter what the cause or who was wrong the typical liberal morons were out in full force decrying the interruption and they all blamed it on one thing, wait for it, yup, racism. Obama was interrupted and a question yelled at him while he was speaking because he is black and the right is full of racists.
The left is playing a game with this one. The liberal media are saying that the leaders of the right have not denounced the reporter and therefore are saying it was OK. This is nothing more than them trying to get one of the leaders to capitulate like McCain would and say it was wrong. By doing so they can continue to press their narrative and take the light away from Obama’s unconstitutional move. They can also push their narrative that it is based on race.
Tucker Carlson pointed out that Sam Donaldson was not admonished for his “heckling” Ronald Reagan. Yes, heckling is the word that the left has given to describe a reporter asking a question so Carlson had to describe it that way. Donaldson took issue with the description and pushed the narrative that it was because Obama is black.
Once again, I do not know if what took place was proper but I know the guy who did it said he mistimed his question thinking Obama was wrapping up (similar to what Donaldson said he used to do), so I will reserve judgement other than to say if he did it on purpose it was rude and if not he made a mistake so move on.
My purpose is twofold. One it is to point out that Obama is usurping the Constitution with his illegal amnesty (and face it, that is what it is).
The second is to point out that the left can’t help but play the race card whenever anything happens to poor little Barry Obama. It never occurred to them to look into the unconstitutional act that Obama is engaging in because they are too blinded by race to do their jobs objectively.
Let me help them. Obama’s race has nothing to do with the fact that he sucks.
He sucks because he is a Socialist who is pandering for votes and he refuses to follow the Constitution while he leads the country down the path to destruction.
But the narrative has been set and the left will continue to drivel on as to how this never happened to any other president. But, since Sam Donaldson was mentioned, this exchange took place between him and George W. Bush:
On August 2, 2006, during the last White House Press conference in the briefing room before undergoing major renovations, Donaldson shouted, “Mr. President, should Mel Gibson be forgiven?”, referencing reports of the actor/producer’s alleged anti-Semitic remarks. President Bush laughed and looked up to see who had asked the question. Bush joked, “Is that Sam Donaldson? Forget it…you’re a ‘has-been’! We don’t have to answer has-beens’ questions.” Donaldson replied, “Better to have been a has-been than a never was.” Wikipedia
Was Sam Donaldson a hater because of this? Did he treat Bush this way because he is white? That same behavior toward Obama would have Donaldson labeled a racist…
We also know that a foreign reporter threw two shoes at George Bush (which Bush successfully dodged) and the left did not condemn those acts. I know they have no control over how foreign reporters act but couldn’t they at least condemn the act? Some blamed Bush and said he failed to see why it happened.
Did anyone blame Obama for the ill timed question shouted by Neil Munro of the Daily Caller? Did anyone claim that Obama was out of touch and that he did not understand the frustration of the majority that opposes what he did with illegals in this country? Did anyone blame Obama for anything?
No, because he is not Bush and because he is a liberal.
And because he is a “black”* man.
Yes, it is the left that is racist here because the left always looks at things through the prism of color. The left blames Obama’s failures on the alleged racists who can’t come to grips with his color. The left is obsessed with making race an issue where it should not be.
The right does not care what color he is. The right is concerned with his polices, policies that are destroying our country.
And his blanket amnesty that usurps the Constitution is one such policy in a long line of them.
*Barack Obama is half black and half white but to the race baiters his white half never figures in the equation. In fact, give his Communist background I think it is fair to say that Obama is black and white and red all over….

On 9 September, 2009 Representative Joe Wilson shouted “you lie” after Obama made the claim that none of the proposals (Obamacare) would pay for the health care of illegal aliens.
The reforms I’m proposing would not apply to those who are here illegally.
This prompted Wilson’s outburst and led to his apology and a rubuke from Congress (a partisan attack by Democrats).
The problem is, Wilson was right. The Department of Health and Human Services has announced the grant money that will go to to areas serving migrant workers and the immigration status of workers will not be checked.
The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) announced on Tuesday that it has awarded $28.8 million to 67 community health centers with funds from the Obamacare health reform law.
Of that $28.8 million, “approximately $8.5 million will be used by 25 New Access Point awardees to target services to migrant and seasonal farm workers,” Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) Spokeswoman Judy Andrews told CNSNews.com. HRSA is a part of HHS.
Andrews said that grant recipients will not check the immigration status of people seeking services.
Health centers do not, as a matter of routine practice, ask about or collect data on citizenship or other matters not related to the treatment needs of the patients seeking health services at the center. CNS News
This means that some of those migrant workers will be illegals and will get health care services paid for with Obamacare money. If they are not going to check (and why wouldn’t they) then they are allowing people who are here illegally to use the health care services.
In other words, as Joe Wilson put it to Mr. Obama;
Never surrender, never submit.

Parts of the Arizona law that only enforced federal immigration laws were struck down by an activist judge who fails to understand that state laws which are identical to or do not change federal law, are perfectly legal. U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton, obviously bowing to behind the scenes pressure from the Obama regime, ruled that police officers cannot be required to check immigration status. What she has basically said is that police officers are not allowed to do their jobs.
Suppose these police officers told the federal government that they would no longer go after bank robbers because bank robbery is a federal crime and it might impact the federal laws. Would that make sense?
What Judge Bolton said today is that the rule of law does not matter and that states do not have control over their own territory. She basically told people it is OK to break federal law and then cause havoc in states and she told the states they have no right to protect themselves against federal impotence.
Governor Brewer plans to appeal the ruling but she should just put the law into place anyway and say screw the ruling. Isn’t this what Obama did with the drilling moratorium in the Gulf? He decided that he would ignore the court. Brewer should just tell her officers that they are not REQUIRED to ask immigration status but are free to do so if they wish. Then it would be a different issue and they can press on.
Immigration groups were jumping with joy at the ruling because now illegals will not be held accountable for the lawbreaking they are doing. They have been given free reign by a judge who made a moronic decision.
At least there is a sheriff in Arizona who intends to continue arresting illegals and putting them in tents.
Judge Bolton failed to rule on the merits of the law and legislated from the bench. She did not look at the merits of the law or she would have seen that it mirrors federal law. Perhaps she is unaware that states are sovereign places and have rights.
This is what happens when people who live in gated communities apart from the real world are placed in positions that require life experiences. This is also what happens when judges are worried about being removed from the bench by the White House.
Eric Holder and the Obama regime can all take a long walk off a short pier and keep walking until their hats float. And the good people of Arizona can take matters into their own hands.
Clean up your state by getting rid of the illegal trash and tell the White House to go screw itself. You folks in Arizona should start asking for papers on your own before you do business with anyone. If they do not have them then no jobs, no apartments, no sales, no cars, no nothing. Ask for proof before issuing a driver’s license.
If anyone says you can’t do that because it is against the law just tell them laws don’t apply in this case because it deals with immigration. Bolton and the feds have shown us that they have no regard for the law and that there is no need to actually follow the law.
I guess Arizona can take solace in the fact that at least these illegals did not come from Kenya…
Never surrender, never submit.
