Obama Ordered ICE NOT To Arrest Fugitive Illegal Immigrants

October 21, 2011

This story just speaks for itself:

Union President Testifies: ICE HQ Ordered Agents Not to Arrest Illegals–Including Fugitives
By Edwin Mora
October 20, 2011

(CNSNews.com) - Chris Crane, president of a union that represents Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers, testified in the House Judiciary Subcommittee on Immigration last week that ICE agents have been told by ICE headquarters not to arrest illegal aliens who do not have a prior criminal conviction even if they are fugitives who have been ordered deported by an immigration judge or are individuals who have illegally re-entered the United States after being deported and thus have perpetrated a felony.
 
“Aliens who could not be arrested included but were not limited to ICE fugitives that had been ordered deported by a federal immigration judge as well as aliens who had illegally re-entered the United States after deportation, a federal felony,” Crane, who is also an active-duty ICE agent, told the committee on Oct. 12.

“ICE officers and agents also alleged that they were not permitted to arrest or even speak to confirmed or suspected illegal aliens encountered in the field during operations and were prohibited from running standard criminal record checks for wants and warrants,” Crane testified.
 
Crane had previously testified about the matter in the subcommittee in late July.
 
“When I last testified before the subcommittee on July 25, 2011, I reported among other things that ICE enforcement removal officers and agents in the field alleged that unwritten directives from ICE headquarters had been issued nationwide ordering officers not to arrest aliens unless it was confirmed that the alien had received a prior conviction for a criminal offense,” Crane told the committee last week.
 
Since his July testimony, he said, his union has been working with the Judiciary Committee on the issue.
 
“I would like to thank Chairman [Lamar] Smith and his staff for working with the union regarding this matter after the July 25 hearing,” said Crane. “Chairman Smith provided us with the opportunity to bring officers forward as witnesses. We were also able to turn over several internal ICE documents which appear to not only verify that these activities did in fact take place, but also named several senior level ICE managers allegedly involved in issuing the directives nationwide.
 
“Second,” Crane testified, “I would like to address the impact and effectiveness of these type of orders. I have never heard of any law enforcement agency in the nation that prohibits its officers from even speaking to or interviewing individuals who are inside a house in which the officers are attempting to affect an arrest.
 
“From a law enforcement standpoint what could be the possible benefit?” said Crane. “The only purpose for an order such as this is to prevent officers from making arrests which ICE leadership has allegedly stated is its goal. However, these directives not only prevent the arrest of non criminal aliens but also prevent the identification and arrest of very dangerous criminals, potentially individuals involved in terrorist activities.” 
 
Crane told the committee that he believed the ICE policy was putting both the public and ICE agents at risk.
 
“It not only prevents officers from talking to and arresting persons who may be wanted for crimes but also individuals who are being victimized and in need of assistance,” said Crane. “Certainly, anyone can see that these practices are contrary to effective law enforcement practice and place the public at risk. Many officers will tell you that the majority of their best arrests, the arrests that most benefit public safety, come from unintended encounters with criminal aliens in the course of looking for a different target in the field.
 
“Of course, these practices also place our officers at risk,” said Crane. “Nothing that I could ever say here today can capture the dynamics as they unfold when a door opens and our officers enter a house that they’ve never been in before. It’s dangerous. Officers don’t know who is in the house or what they are capable of doing. Problems often arise that require officers to remain in a house for extended periods. Officers on the scene must have the ability to provide for their own safety. They should never be prohibited from talking to people at the scene, conducting interviews as needed, running appropriate background checks, or even making additional arrests.” 
 
 
During an Oct. 19 hearing in the Senate Judiciary Committee, Sen. Jeff Sessions of Alabama asked Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano about the information Crane had brought forward. Napolitano denied that agents were being told not to arrest fugitives and deportees who had re-entered the country.
 
“What I’m hearing is that while claiming to arrest more criminal aliens, internal ICE documents show that DHS leadership has ordered field officers not to arrest fugitives and re-entries and leadership efforts to conceal this from the public has led to confusion in the field,” Sessions told Napolitano.
 
“Well if they say that, they’re not reading it correctly because that’s exactly not the case,” Napolitano said. “They can be arrested, but at some point in the process there need to be decisions made about who is to be removed.”
 
CNSNews.com recently reported that during fiscal years 2009 and 2010 ICE caught and released at least 28 Iranian who as of this January were considered fugitives in the U.S.–and that ICE would not say whether they were still fugitives as of the beginning of this week. Iran has been designated by the U.S. State Department as one of four state-sponsors of terrorism. The other three are Syria, Sudan, and Cuba.   
 
Chris Crane is president of the National Immigration and Customs Enforcement Council 118 of the American  Federation of Government Employees. The National ICE Council, according to written testimony Crane presented to the committee, represents about 7,200 ICE employees, who mostly work in ICE’s Office of Enforcement and Removal Operations. Crane said he had been an ICE officer since 2003. Before that, according to Immigration Subcommittee Chairman Elton Gallegly, Crane had served 11 years in the U.S. Marine Corps.
 
During his time as an ICE agent, Crane told the subcommittee in his written testimony, he has worked in the Criminal Alien Program, which goes after aliens who have been charged with crimes by local or federal law enforcement, and also as part of a Fugitive Operations Team “whose primary function was to apprehend foreign nationals who had not departed the United States after receiving and Order of Deportation from a federal immigration judge.”

Barack Obama is working his damndest to fundamentally transform the United States of America: and that “fundamental transformation” is to transform a country that God shed His grace on into “God damn America.”

And Obama is succeeding wildly.

Obama Tanks With Hispanics AFTER His Traitorous Backdoor Amnesty Plan Announced

August 24, 2011

This might be a truly amazing development.  If this trend continues, I will be forever grateful to American Hispanics:

DOH! Hispanic Approval for Obama at All-Time Low Despite Amnesty Move
By John Hill on August 23, 2011

Barack Obama’s desperate move to rescue the Hispanic vote with his amnesty-by-fiat appears to have gained him nothing, and may have even backfired.

On August 18, the Administration announced that 300,000 illegal aliens would have their deportations “indefinitely delayed”, and would also become eligible for “work permits”. The move, termed “backdoor amnesty” by U.S. House leaders Lamar Smith and Peter King, was widely viewed as a transparent attempt to shore up the Hispanic vote before the 2012 elections.

If that’s true, so far it’s an EPIC FAIL: a Gallup poll taken after his amnesty decree showed that Obama’s approval rating among Hispanics fell to its lowest point on record – 44% – 5 % lower than just one week earlier, and a whopping 41% drop since the 85% high soon after Obama took office.

Obama’s advisers appear to have believed the propaganda of their own allies at La Raza (“The Race”) that ALL Hispanics support amnesty for illegals. But that is not the case, as we saw last year after Arizona passed its tough S.B. 1070 immigration law. The Denver Post polled Coloradans next door regarding whether they would like to see a similar crackdown on illegals pass in their own state. 61% said yes. But surprisingly (to the Denver Post), Colorado Hispanics said yes with an even higher margin: 62%.

In Arizona, the media asked LEGAL Hispanic immigrants what they thought of illegal ones. Most gave opinions that surprised liberal commentators – that they opposed illegal immigration and amnesty. Immigrants in this news report summed up the feelings of many:

“We have millions of people from all over the world who want to come here legally, and can’t, because we already have millions of illegals here taking their place. We need to make sure that those who want to come here legally go to the front of the line.”Carlos Cardenas (Legal immigrant and veteran from Panama)

“People say you’re a traitor: they’re your people. And I say ‘No they’re not my people…my people are honorable people who remain (in Mexico).’”Anna Gaines (Legal immigrant from Mexico)

And no wonder. Few are more adversely impacted by illegal aliens than LEGAL immigrants, who compete unfavorably with them for jobs, since they play by the rules and are often priced out of work as a result. And despite the media hype about “record deportations under Obama”, the fact is that the majority of those deportations occurred close to the border, where most of them easily come right back in (like these illegals). And America’s 20 million unemployed are forced to compete with illegals as well, as workplace enforcement has dropped a stunning 70% under Obama. Little or no action is being taken against illegal workers under Obama.

And even for Hispanics who DO support amnesty for illegals, many of them simply don’t believe Obama’s lies anymore. They know he had a ‘Super Majority’ for two entire years, yet did little to push through “immigration reform”. And now suddenly – desperately, as he runs for re-election – Obama is trying to win them back with his “backdoor amnesty” order. So far, it appears to be no sale.

For Americans who respect the rule of law, we can only hope that this trend of plummeting support for the lawless Obama continues right into November 2012 – which cannot come soon enough.

PLEASE CONSIDER A DONATION of $10.70 (or any amount your prefer) to Stand With Arizona in honor of SB1070, to help us continue to fight against illegal alien amnesty and push for Arizona-style enforcement laws nationwide: DONATE link. Thank you.

There’s another story that is just beautiful:

California Hispanics Favor Arizona-Type Law For Their State Too
Wednesday, June 23, 2010
by Denny Hartford

Though Colorado Democrats and their pals in the press are trying to downplay (even discredit) a Denver Post poll which asked Coloradans about illegal immigration, the results were compelling. For despite all of the biased reporting the liberal media across the nation has done on the new Arizona law, most citizens of her neighbor to the northeast like very much what Arizona did.

And they’d like it to be the law in Colorado too!

A Denver Post/9News poll conducted in conjunction with The Tribune showed most Colorado voters would like to see the state adopt a similar immigration law to that passed by Arizona.

And note this — a higher percentage of Hispanic voters (62 %) would support a law similar to the one in Arizona in Colorado than would whites (61 %). Interesting. It shows that most Hispanic-Americans understand the Arizona law isn’t about racism or even opposition to immigration. It’s about a state trying to curb illegal immigration only.

Also, the breakdown of the poll results showed a majority of Coloradans supporting an Arizona-type law in all categories: Denver residents (58%), younger citizens (58%), college grads (56%), etc.

Of course, the news is out that the Obama administration is going to challenge the Arizona law in court. But as this poll shows, it’s just one more example of how the President is not only out of step with American citizens, he flat out doesn’t care.

I used to work with a couple of Hispanic women who loved America with a passion that I dare say surpassed my own – and I literally went to COMBAT for America.  Nothing made Sylvia and Esmerelda more angry than illegal immigration and Hispanics who came to this country for handouts. 

Sylvia came from El Salvador, and Esmerelda came from Nicaragua.  Both women came to America legally, and both escaped from miserable conditions in their countries for vastly better lives in America. 

And both women were enraged by fellow Hispanics whom they saw as trying to bring the very hell they had escaped from to the America that they loved and to which they were grateful and loyal citizens.

Sylvia’s son served his country as a Marine in Afghanistan through three combat tours.  He’s home now, safe and sound, but when we worked together Sylvia, Esmerelda and I would pray for his safety every morning before work, and again every evening before going home.  Sylvia enlisted me to pray because she knew I was an outspoken Christian and she knew that I was a veteran – and both things made me okay in her book. 

So I know from personal experience that such noble Hispanics as they are out there.  But it gladdens my heart to see that they might be out there in larger numbers than I dared dream.

Liberals Seek Power For Government To Dictate Every Decision Of Our Lives – And They’ve Almost Got It

August 22, 2011

From Reason Magazine:

Looking for Limits
The power to mandate health insurance is the power to mandate almost anything.
Jacob Sullum | August 17, 2011

Opponents of the federal law requiring Americans to buy government-approved medical coverage face a daunting challenge. Because the U.S. Supreme Court has treatedthe power to “regulate commerce…among the several states” like Silly Putty since the New Deal, explaining why it cannot be stretched to cover the health insurance mandate is harder than you might think.

But as last Friday’s decisionby the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit illustrated, the law’s defenders have a corresponding problem. Because a limitless Commerce Clause contradicts a fundamental constitutional principle, they have to justify the mandate in a way that does not also justify every other conceivable congressional dictate regarding how we spend our money. So far they have been unable to do so, which is the main reason the appeals court rejectedthis “wholly novel and potentially unbounded assertion of Congressional authority.”

Under our system of government, the 11th Circuit noted, Congress has only those powers that are explicitly enumerated in the Constitution, with the rest “reserved to the states respectively, or to the people” (as the 10th Amendment puts it). An all-encompassing Commerce Clause that authorizes any mandate, restriction, or prohibition aimed at behavior that might affect interstate commerce (subject to specific limits such as those imposed by the Bill of Rights) is plainly inconsistent with this federal system.

The Obama administration therefore needs to explain why its constitutional rationale for the health insurance mandate—that the failure to obtain medical coverage, in the aggregate, has a “substantial effect” on interstate commerce—does not amount to such an open-ended license. Toward that end, it argues that health care is unique because it is expensive, everyone needs it at some point yet cannot confidently predict when, and federal law requires hospitals to treat people regardless of their ability to pay, which shifts costs to others.

As the 11th Circuit noted, however, “virtually all forms of insurance entail decisions about timing and planning for unpredictable events with high associated costs.” Based on the administration’s criteria, “there is no reason why Congress could not similarly compel Americans to insure against any number of unforeseeable but serious risks,” including natural disasters, accidental death, theft, business interruption, disability, long-term nursing care, and burial costs.

More important, the distinguishing characteristics cited by the government have no basis in the Constitution or in the Supreme Court’s Commerce Clause precedents. “They are not limiting principles,” the appeals court said. “Rather, they are ad hoc factors that—fortuitously—happen to apply to the health insurance and health care industries.”

These factors may help explain why Congress wants to make people buy health insurance, but they do not explain why it has the authority to do so. And if the Supreme Court ultimately upholds the unprecedented policy of mandating purchases in the name of regulating interstate commerce, future Congresses could decide there are sound reasons to make people buy other forms of insurance (to prevent cost shifting), exercise equipment (to reduce health care costs), double-pane windows (to conserve energy), or American cars (to stimulate the economy and support domestic manufacturers).

“Every day,” the 11th Circuit observed, “Americans decide what products to buy, where to invest or save, and how to pay for future contingencies such as their retirement, their children’s education, and their health care. The government contends that embedded in the Commerce Clause is the power to override these ordinary decisions and redirect those funds to other purposes.”

Given the potential for wide-ranging controls over heretofore private decisions, you can see why this debate is not simply about arcane legal doctrines or arbitrary distinctions between state and federal powers. “While these structural limitations are often discussed in terms of federalism,” the appeals court noted, “their ultimate goal is the protection of individual liberty.”

By increasing the federal government’s role in medicine, President Obama’s health care reforms directly limit freedom. But the legal arguments he is using to defend them may turn out to be a much bigger threat.

After all the Democrats’ constant attacks on the Bush “power-grabs” over such areas as civil liberties and personal freedoms, the very few liberals that actually have at least some consistency and integrity are pointing out that Obama is actually WORSE than Obama.

A Daily Kos piece begins thus:

On July 2nd, I attended a session given by Glenn Greenwald at the Socialism 2011 conference in Chicago.   He began the speech by discussing the fact that even a year ago if he had attempted to give a speech observing that Obama has not only continued but in some cases enhanced the Bush/Cheney attacks on civil liberties he would have had to spend all of his time attempting to convince his audience that this was true. 
 
People just instinctively found it repellent—the idea that this wonderfully, sophisticated, educated, progressive, constitutional lawyer, who ran on a platform of denouncing these policies and vowing to unroot them and reverse them, would actually be continuing and in many cases actually worsening them. It was just something that despite the abundance of evidence proving it was true was something that people intuitively reacted to in a negative way. You had to spend a great deal of time persuading them that it was actually the case by assembling all the evidence to prove it.

Democrats have viewed the Constitution as un unpleasant nuisance that needs to be ignored.

Lest we ever forget, “it takes a long time to do the necessary administrative steps that have to be taken to put the legislation together to control the people,” according to Democrats.  But have no fear, those of you who want nothing more than to wear the yoke of big government around your necks, we’ve almost got that complete dictatorial control over us now.

Obama just suspended the deportation of 300,000 illegal immigrants who were already in the system and ready to go.  Before taking this incredible – and completely politically motivated – move, Obama actually said that what he would ultimately do was both unconstitutional and undemocratic:

“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.”

That he would say he was tempted to do something that violates the American system of government, that fundamentally violates a democracy and that treats the U.S. Constitution with disregard is bad enough; to actually do it is treason.

In the situation of oil drilling, even a liberal a judge whom Obama had appointed himself recently ruled that the administration lied, broke the law and violated the rights of drilling companies as Obama labored to destroy 20,000 Louisiana jobs.

Obama doesn’t care about the Constitution. ObamaCare was declared unconstitutional, and it will be up to the Supreme Court to rescue the American people from him and from his tyranny. The Appeals Court just said in its opinion:

“What Congress cannot do under the Commerce Clause is mandate that individuals enter into contracts with private insurance companies for the purchase of an expensive product from the time they are born until the time they die.”

But hey, at least überconservatives are soon going to be able to use this same power to mandate that every single American purchase a Bible, go to a Christian church, tithe to that church and put homosexuals into re-education camps (you know, after psychological counseling becomes part of ObamaCare). After all, the Commerce Clause let’s you do anything these days, doesn’t it?

Here’s the last inch of the slippery slope described:

Over the years the courts have gutted constitutional doctrines intended to limit state power and justified almost any government action unless barred by the Bill of Rights. Indeed, the Commerce Clause, which authorizes federal regulation of commerce “among the several states,” has been interpreted to largely swallow up Article 1, Section 8, which enumerates Congress’s authority. The ocean became one of government power, with but a few islands of personal freedom.

However, Obamacare went further than any previous federal intrusion. In the name of regulating commerce, the law ordered people who had not entered any market to purchase a private product. If upheld, the measure would establish the principle that Americans could be forced to buy American cars to bail out the auto industry, Lehman securities to save Wall Street, and homes to revive the housing market. Whether or not the insurance mandate is good policy — and there are lots of reasons to argue that it is not — it effectively dismantles any meaningful limits on the national government.

… Indeed, District Court Judge Gladys Kessler stated in her opinion that the government could regulate “mental activity” — under a constitutional provision involving “commerce.”

And what’s good for the überliberal goose is good for the ultra-conservative gander.

Justice Antonin Scalia tried to warn ACLU president Nadine Strossen of that fact when he said:

“Someday, Nadine, you’re going to get a very conservative Supreme Court … And you’re going to regret what you’ve done.”

Barack Obama has declared open warfare on the Constitution, upon democracy and upon the American way – as he himself admitted.  If he is allowed to win now, conservatives will have no other choice but to retaliate in this total war he started by fighting back on Obama’s own terms.

What Obama is doing right now – and what he’s trying to do – should frighten everyone.

Desperate Obama Begins Illegal Immigrant Amnesty By Fiat Hoping Hispanic Vote Will Carry Him

August 19, 2011

A few days ago the mainstream media came unglued when Governor Rick Perry used the phrase “almost treasonous” to describe the Obama Fed wildly creating money out of thin air.

I’ll use the same word now minus the “almost”; Obama’s unprecedented backdoor amnesty – which amounts in the administration refusing to do its basic job protecting American borders – is treasonous.

Barack Obama said these words to the racist ultra-Hispanic organization La Raza (which means “the race”) as they screamed for Obama to act like a dictator and impose what they wanted like a tyrant:

“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.”

Well, it didn’t USED to be how our system worked.  And that Constitution hasn’t meant much of a damned thing to liberals who wanted to “progress” far beyond the limits of our founding laws and documents by “interpreting” it however the hell they wanted to.  Now Obama can do something that he himself pointed out was blatantly unconstitutional because his base doesn’t give a damn about the Constitution and he’s desperate because of the fact that everything he stands for is failing massively.

Obama is now dictating what he previously specifically said was unconstitutional and anti-democratic to do – even though he had to admit that it was tempting to him anyway - because of a poll:

Only 49 percent of Hispanic Americans said last week they approve of the job Barack Obama is doing as president, according to the Gallup poll. That is down 36 points from the high of 85 percent that Obama’s approval hit among Hispanics in the Gallup poll in the spring of 2009, his first year as president

All Obama and all Democrats care about is power.  If they have to burn America down to get that power, then they will burn America down.

What Obama is doing is quite simply un-American.  But what can we say?  Democrats ARE un-American.  When one party is so profoundly treacherous to their country that “Just a brief exposure to an image of the American flag shifts voters, even Democrats, to Republican beliefs, attitudes and voting behavior,” you know that that Democrat Party would have no problem becoming a fifth colomn against America.  And when “A new Harvard University study finds that July 4th parades energize only Republicans, turn kids into Republicans, and help to boost the GOP turnout of adults on Election Day,” you can know that the other party – the Democrat Party – is a God damn America party.

Obama needs more America-haters in America.  Because damn it, there just aren’t enough Democrats.  So he’s bringing in reinforcements who hate America and who will therefore vote for him.

Brewer: Obama plan is ‘backdoor amnesty’
By MACKENZIE WEINGER | 8/19/11 6:08 AM EDT

Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer called the Obama administration’s new policy that will allow many illegal immigrants who don’t have criminal records the chance to stay in the United States “backdoor amnesty.”

In a statement, the Republican governor slammed the planned case-by-case reviews of the approximately 300,000 illegal immigrants who are currently facing possible expulsion.

“This plan amounts to backdoor amnesty for hundreds of thousands – if not millions – of illegal aliens,” Brewer said on Thursday.

The Obama administration announced Thursday its top priority will be targeting illegal immigrants with criminal convictions for deportations, and moving low-priority cases — such as young people who were brought to the U.S. as children, military veterans and spouses of military personnel — out of the deportation pipeline.

Brewer, who enacted one of the country’s toughest immigration laws, said the announcement “is encouraging more illegal immigration at the exact moment we need federal focus on border security.”

Last year, the Obama administration deported a record number of people — nearly 400,000. The rising number of deportations has angered the Hispanic community, which is a key voting bloc for President Barack Obama.

Brewer — who called the new deportation plan “especially disturbing” for border states such as Arizona in the wake of U.S. weapon sales to Mexican drug cartels — said Obama’s new policy “got it really wrong.”

“We need to remind President Obama that we elected a president that serves beneath the law and did not anoint a king that is above the law,” she said.

Who needs the rule of law?  Obama uses the law like a guy with Montezuma’s Revenge uses toilet paper.

We’ve got Obama now.  Obama stands above the law like a messiah hovering transcendently above mere mortal man.  And Obama is the best damned Führer since Hitler.

Governor Brewer is right.  This backdoor amnesty is virtually identical to the DREAM Act that Congress voted down last year in the Democrat-controlled Senate.  For Obama to impose it by fiat is the act of an absolute monarch, rather than a president elected to uphold a Constitution.

This is an absolute outrage.  Barack Obama literally sues governors and states for trying to protect themselves against a massive onslaught of illegal invading immigrants who want to crash in on and usurp the American way of life, while at the same time abdicating the U.S. government’s duty to protect its citizens.

Past outrages pale compared to this fresh slap in the face of the dying United States of America:

Pinal County, Arizona Sheriff Paul Babeu says of Obama and Janet Napalitano, “They’re divorced from reality.” In a separate interview, Sheriff Babeu pointed out that the people on the front lines in the border states are crying for help, but instead of helping, the federal government sends in battalions of attorneys to fight those states, and further undermines the rule of law, and actually gives the states signs that warn citizens that their own country isn’t theirs anymore:

We need a leader, and what we have is a naked liar and a shameless political demagogue.

You read that sign carefully.  Because one day one just like it is going to show up warning you that your neighborhood is not yours any longer.  Because Obama gave it to someone he trusts to vote for him more than Americans.

Obama is counting on the passive and apathetic “whatever” of the American people as he seeks to woo the Hispanic vote.  It is much the same tactic that he is pursuing against the black vote.  He believes he already owns their vote so he throws them under the bus and then drives that bus right over them to try to win the white independents he needs.

This is a man who doesn’t give one damn about America.  He would burn this country down and invite every one of its enemies into what little is left if they’d vote Democrat (which they would).

I brought this up recently because Obama’s lies were factually confirmed yet again.  But do you remember when Obama gave a speech and said that his ObamaCare wouldn’t cover illegal immigrants, and Rep. Joe Wilson lost it and shouted “You LIE!”???

YOU LIE, Obama.  YOU LIE!!!

God damn America is about to get a lot more crowded.  But it’s okay.  Because the millions of jobless, unskilled ignorant illegals we’ll be taking in and taking care of instead of our own citizens and our own children will vote Democrat.

Don’t forget who the Democrats are.

Don’t forget that the Democrat Party is the anti-American party and the party of genuine evil.

If you Democrats were merely evil and not stupid too, you would see the writing on the wall right now: one day we’re going to have an überconservative president.  And you just wait for that president to take the precedents Obama has created to shove home his or her agenda right down your whiny-little throat.  Don’t you DARE think you can stand by while your Führer does this and then tell a Republican president, “You can’t do this!”  Because we will snarl at you and we will spout Obama’s campaign slogan: “YES, WE CAN!”

When Joe Wilson Shouted ‘You Lie!’ At Obama, IT WAS BECAUSE OBAMA WAS LYING

August 12, 2011

When it comes to Barack Obama, if you ALWAYS assume the man is lying, you will turn out to be right an astonishingly high percentage of the time.

I wrote about this immediately after the event in my article, “Joe Wilson’s ‘You Lie!’ Over Illegal Immigrants Most True Statement During Obama Speech.”

HHS: Obamacare-Funded Health Centers for ‘Migrants’ Won’t Check Immigration Status
Wednesday, August 10, 2011
By Matt Cover

(CNSNews.com) – 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,” Andrews said.
 
Further, the grant recipients are required to serve “all residents” who walk through their doors.
 
“The Program’s authorizing statute does not affirmatively address immigration status,” said Andrews. “Rather, it simply states that health centers are required to provide primary health care to all residents of the health center’s service area without regard for ability to pay.”
 
These Obamacare disbursements seem to contradict a claim President Obama famously made in a nationally televised speech to a joint session of Congress on Sept. 9, 2009.
 
The reforms I’m proposing would not apply to those who are here illegally,” Obama said then.
 
When Obama said these words, Rep. Joe Wilson (R-S.C.) shouted out from the House floor: “You lie!” After the speech, Wilson called the White House and apologized for his remark and issued a statement saying he was sorry for it and President Obama accepted his apology. However, five days later, led by then-Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D.-Md.), the House voted 240-179 to rebuke Wilson for his outburst on the House floor

The grants announced by HHS yesterday aim to support community health centers that provide health care free-of-charge or at a reduced price to people making up to 200 percent of the federal poverty level.
 
Because the health care centers receiving $8.5 million in Obamacare money “to target services to migrant and seasonal farm workers” will not check the immigration status of the migrant workers who seek their services it is inevitable that they will serve illegal aliens.
 
According to the Pew Hispanic Center, illegal immigrants make up an estimated 25 percent of all migrant farm workers, with disproportionate amounts residing in California, Texas, Florida, and Georgia.
 
“As a result of the concentration of unauthorized immigrants working in certain occupations, there are some occupations where they also represent a high proportion of workers. For example, 25% of farm workers are undocumented immigrants,” Pew said in a 2009 report.
 
The $28.8 million in ObamaCare grants announced yesterday are part of the New Access Point grant program for community health centers. Migrant Health Centers are a special type of community health center that specifically targets migrant farm workers.
 
“These awards demonstrate a commitment to improving and expanding access to quality health care for local communities. We are removing barriers that stand in the way of affordable and accessible primary health services,” HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said in a statement on Tuesday announcing the grants.
 
“The Migrant Health Center program provides support to health centers to deliver comprehensive, high quality, culturally-competent preventive and primary health services to migrant and seasonal farm workers and their families,” the HRSA says on its Web site.

The Democrats censured Joe Wilson – because unlike a Democrat cheating on his taxes, questioning the messiah is TERRIBLEin spite of (or because of) their own dishonesty.

And, of course, now history proves it: the night Obama gave his speech, there were only two honest words that night.  And they were Joe Wilson’s words, “You lie!”

I wrote an article in October 2009 titled, “Obama: PLEASE Stop Lying To Sell Your Health Care Plan.”  That was very unfair of me.  Because asking Obama to quit lying is rather like asking the sun to stop shining.  Shining is what the sun does by its very nature, and lying is what Obama does by his very nature.

I also wrote an article that same October, “How CBO Scored Baucus Health Care Plan As Deficit Neutral.”  In fact I’ve written several articles trying to explain how ObamaCare’s costs were a flat out LIE:

ObamaCare Increases Health Cost By $311 Billion While Threatening Access To Care

Documented Fact: Obama, Democrats LIED About Reducing Health Care Costs

CBO Reveals That ObamaCare Will INCREASE Prescription Drug Prices

HHS Secretary Sebelius Affirms Obama Administration Double-Counting Same $500 Billion

Democrats ‘Fix’ ObamaCare Numbers By Leaving Out TRILLIONS In Additional Spending

It’s kind of like what Nancy Pelosi said:

“But we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it, away from the fog of the controversy.”

Only the TRUTH would read:

“But we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what lies are in it, after it’s passed and it’s too late to stop our takeover and destruction of the health care system.”

And so, once again, we find out for the factual record that DEMOCRATS LIED:

Report: Obamacare Hides $50 Billion in Annual Costs
Tuesday, 09 Aug 2011 01:18 PM
By Tom O’Connell

New research suggests that Obamacare comes with $50 billion in hidden annual costs, reports DailyCaller.com. The plan’s budget apparently does not take into account the insurance costs of workers’ spouses and children, meaning the Treasury could be tapped for hundreds of billions of dollars in the first decade the plan is instituted.

“The Congressional Budget Office has never done a cost estimate of this [because] they were expressly told to do their modeling on single [person] coverage,” Richard Burkhauser told the Caller.  Burkhauser, a Cornell University economist and professor, coauthored a report on the plan published by the National Bureau of Economic Research.

These unaccounted costs “will almost certainly add to the deficit, contrary to what the Congressional Budget Office and others have estimated,” Paul Winfree of the Heritage Foundation told the Caller.

The plan’s estimate that 75 percent of workers would remain on employer-backed insurance plans is also much too high, according to Burkhauser, whose research suggests a figure around 35 percent.

“This study shows yet another way that Obamacare’s cost will be much, much higher than supporters led the American people to believe,” said Michael Cannon of the Cato Institute. “Anyone who’s serious about the federal debt should make Obamacare’s trillion-plus dollars of new entitlement spending the first item to put on the chopping block.”

Let me just echo with Joe Wilson in my words to Obama: “YOU LIE!!!

Obama Desperate To Save Life Of Mexican Rapist-Murderer Because Mexicans Who Hate America Vote Democrat

July 7, 2011

Personally, not only do I want this rapist-murder to face justice where he can burn in hell for the rest of eternity, but I kind of wish they’d run out of the lethal drug cocktail and the guards would carry out the sentence with baseball bats.

If Mexicans voted Republican, Barack Obama would have already sent planes to bomb Mexico the way he has done in Libya, Yemen and Pakistan.

But they vote Democrat, so every raping-and-murdering scumbag illegal immigrant executed is one less vote for Obama in 2012.  And that, of course, is a far worse crime to Obama than the one that Humberto Leal committed against that 16 year-old girl.  If you don’t think so, just scroll down the memory lane of the most recent May Day Outrage Against America event.

Mexican man’s Texas execution in rape, murder appealed by White House
Published: Thursday, July 07, 2011, 9:15 AM

HUNTSVILLE, Texas — The planned execution Thursday of a Mexican national has prompted a flurry of appeals on his behalf, including a rare plea from the White House, because of what it could mean for other foreigners arrested in the U.S. and for Americans detained in other countries.

Humberto Leal, 38, is awaiting a ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court on whether to block his lethal injection in Huntsville. He was sentenced to die for the 1994 rape and murder of 16-year-old Adria Sauceda of San Antonio.

The appeal contends that authorities never told Leal after his arrest that he could seek legal assistance from the Mexican government under an international treaty, and that such assistance would have aided his defense. Leal moved to the U.S. as a toddler.

Leal’s attorneys have support from the White House, the Mexican government and other diplomats who believe the execution should be delayed so his case can be thoroughly reviewed.

“There can be little doubt that if the government of Mexico had been allowed access to Mr. Leal in a timely manner, he would not now be facing execution for a capital murder he did not commit,” Leal’s attorneys told the Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles in a clemency request rejected Tuesday. “Unfortunately, Mexico’s assistance came too late to affect the result of Mr. Leal’s capital murder prosecution.”

Obama administration made request to Supreme Court last week

President Barack Obama’s administration took the unusual step of intervening in a state murder case when it asked the Supreme Court last week to delay Leal’s execution for up to 6 months. The U.S. solicitor general told the court that Congress needed time to consider legislation that would allow federal courts to review cases of condemned foreign nationals to determine if the lack of consular help made a significant difference in the outcome of their cases.

The legislation, backed by the U.S. State Department and the United Nations, would bring the U.S. into compliance with the Vienna Convention on Consular Relations provision regarding the arrest of foreign nationals.

Lower courts already rejected the pleas, agreeing with the Texas Attorney General’s office that since the legislation hasn’t been passed and signed into law, it doesn’t apply. At least 2 measures like it failed earlier in Congress.

“Leal’s argument is nothing but a transparent attempt to evade his impending punishment,” Stephen Hoffman, an assistant attorney general for the state of Texas, told the Supreme Court.

Arturo Sarukhan, Mexico’s ambassador to the U.S., wrote numerous congressional members and Texas officials calling attention to the legislation and the case and urged Gov. Rick Perry to stop the punishment.

Perry had the authority to issue a one-time 30-day reprieve but made no decision while the courts remained involved.

Leal had said he knew girls’ parents, would take her home

Prosecutors said on the night she was killed, Sauceda was drunk and high on cocaine at an outdoor party in an undeveloped neighborhood of San Antonio and was assaulted by several males. At some point, prosecutors said, Leal showed up and said he knew her parents and would take her home and explain the situation to them.

Witnesses said Leal drove off with Sauceda around 5 a.m. Some partygoers found her brutalized body later that morning and called police, prosecutors said. When officers arrived, they found Sauceda’s head battered by a 30- to 40-pound chunk of asphalt and evidence that she had been bitten, strangled and raped. A large stick that had a screw protruding from it was left in her body.

Leal, a mechanic, was identified as the last person seen with her. He was questioned and arrested.

A witness testified Leal’s brother appeared at the party, agitated that Leal had arrived home bloody and saying he had killed a girl. Testifying during the trial’s punishment phase, Leal acknowledged being intoxicated and doing wrong but said he wasn’t responsible for what prosecutors alleged. […]

For the record, Humberto Leal was NOT “denied” access to his consulate, so the claim by his attorney wailing that “if the government of Mexico had been allowed access to Mr. Leal in a timely manner…” is utterly bogus.  At worst, the state of Texas is guilty of not bending over far enough to make sure that a scumbag murderer of a little girl was aware of all the possible ways he could use to escape justice.  By analogy, I should go into your home and then claim that you kidnapped me on the grounds that you didn’t specifically tell me I could leave.

If the slimeball wanted his consulate, all he had to do was ask.  But we live in a society in which liberals believe that if a stupid person is stupid, some intelligent person somewhere must surely be responsible for it.

The Supreme Court said Obama was full of crap and ruled that the execution could proceed on schedule.  Hopefully he’s enjoying his life sentance in the fire of hell by now.

Liberal Rallies Pimp Hard-Core Totalitarian Socialism

June 20, 2011

John Edwards ran a campaign of “two Americas” in 2004 and again in 2008.  This particularly disgusting species of vermin could have been our president; he certainly could have been our vice president.

Now decent Americans know they would NEVER want to belong to “John Edwards’ America” if there was any possible other one to belong to.  The man is pure slime, as are the “values” he ran on.

John Edwards was right, though: there REALLY ARE “two Americas” being fought over right now.  They are the United States of America that our founding fathers fought for and created based on a profound Judeo-Christian view of the world, versus the Union of Soviet Socialist States of America dreamed of by the left.  The former has an economic basis of free market capitalism; the latter has an economic basis of a hybrid mixture of crony capitalism (i.e. fascism) and communism.  The former is based on individual liberties balanced by duties based on the Judeo-Christian moral tradition; the latter is based on a Marxist/fascist notion of statism balanced by nothing but their own lust for power.

On June 17 a union leader denounced New Jersey Governor Chris Christie compared Christie to Adolf Hitler and threatened to start World War III to destroy him:

At a rally in New Jersey protesting Republican Gov. Chris Christie’s deal to reform New Jersey’s state pension system, a union leader charged Christie with acting like a Nazi. And not any ordinary Nazi, but Adolf Hitler himself.

“Good afternoon brothers and sisters. Welcome to Nazi Germany,” Communications Workers of America District 1 Vice President Christopher Shelton is seen raving at a Thursday rally in a video posted on YouTube.

“We have Adolf Christie and his two generals trying to make New Jersey Nazi Germany.”

After ranting more about “Adolf Christie,” the YouTube video shows Shelton comparing the pension battle in New Jersey to World War II.

“Brothers and sisters, this is not going to be an easy fight,” he shrieked. “It took World War II to get rid of the last Adolf Hitler. It is going to take World War III to get rid of Adolf Christie. Are you ready for World War III?”

Rally attendees are seen wildly cheering Shelton’s speech in the video.

There’s a couple of major problems with Christopher Shelton’s thesis: one is that Adolf Hitler was a socialist: “NAZI” stood for “National SOCIALIST German WORKERS Party“; and the second is that it was Adolf Hitler and those who thought like him who started that terrible war.  Just like the REAL Nazis in Shelton and the leftists who think like him are angling to start the NEXT world war.

Who is starting the wars going on now?  Look at Greece, where leftists are violently rioting because there isn’t any more money to pay for their socialism.

When you look at the Nazi Party platform, you see hardened socialism all over it:

  • The abolition of unearned income;
  • Nationalization of trusts;
  • Inclusion into profit-sharing;
  • Increase in old-age pensions;
  • Creation and maintenance of a sound middle-class;
  • Aguarian reform, which included the siezing of land without compensation;
  • State control of education;
  • Creation of a “folk” army to supplant or replace the regular army;
  • State control of the press

Leftwing socialist is in the Nazis’ own words:

- The first obligation of every citizen must be to work both spiritually and physically. The activity of individuals is not to counteract the interests of the universality, but must have its result within the framework of the whole for the benefit of all Consequently we demand:

- Abolition of unearned (work and labour) incomes. Breaking of rent-slavery.

- In consideration of the monstrous sacrifice in property and blood that each war demands of the people personal enrichment through a war must be designated as a crime against the people. Therefore we demand the total confiscation of all war profits.

- We demand the nationalization of all (previous) associated industries (trusts).

- We demand a division of profits of all heavy industries.

- We demand an expansion on a large scale of old age welfare.

- We demand the creation of a healthy middle class and its conservation, immediate communalization of the great warehouses and their being leased at low cost to small firms, the utmost consideration of all small firms in contracts with the State, county or municipality.

- We demand a land reform suitable to our needs, provision of a law for the free expropriation of land for the purposes of public utility, abolition of taxes on land and prevention of all speculation in land.

- We demand struggle without consideration against those whose activity is injurious to the general interest. Common national criminals, usurers, Schieber and so forth are to be punished with death, without consideration of confession or race.

- We demand substitution of a German common law in place of the Roman Law serving a materialistic world-order.

- The state is to be responsible for a fundamental reconstruction of our whole national education program, to enable every capable and industrious German to obtain higher education and subsequently introduction into leading positions. The plans of instruction of all educational institutions are to conform with the experiences of practical life. The comprehension of the concept of the State must be striven for by the school [Staatsbuergerkunde] as early as the beginning of understanding. We demand the education at the expense of the State of outstanding intellectually gifted children of poor parents without consideration of position or profession.

- The State is to care for the elevating national health by protecting the mother and child, by outlawing child-labor, by the encouragement of physical fitness, by means of the legal establishment of a gymnastic and sport obligation, by the utmost support of all organizations concerned with the physical instruction of the young.

- We demand abolition of the mercenary troops and formation of a national army.

- We demand legal opposition to known lies and their promulgation through the press. In order to enable the provision of a German press, we demand, that: a. All writers and employees of the newspapers appearing in the German language be members of the race: b. Non-German newspapers be required to have the express permission of the State to be published. They may not be printed in the German language: c. Non-Germans are forbidden by law any financial interest in German publications, or any influence on them, and as punishment for violations the closing of such a publication as well as the immediate expulsion from the Reich of the non-German concerned. Publications which are counter to the general good are to be forbidden. We demand legal prosecution of artistic and literary forms which exert a destructive influence on our national life, and the closure of organizations opposing the above made demands.

You look at this platform and you explain to me how “the National Socialist American Workers Party” wouldn’t be the DEMOCRATS.

Unions HELPED Hitler rise to power.  Homosexuals DOMINATED Hitler’s SA which he rode in his rise to power.  Both were purged when they had outlived their usefulness.  Hitler didn’t want “unions”; Hitler wanted THE union of all Germans in a greater German Reich.  Hitler didn’t abolish unions; he created one big giant union by unifying themHitler had said of the trade unions:

“I am convinced that we cannot possibly dispense with the trades unions. On the contrary, they are among the most important institutions in the economic life of the nation.”

Read up on the German Labor Front (Deutsche Arbeitsfront, DAF): “DAF membership was theoretically voluntary, but any workers in any area of German commerce or industry would have found it hard to get a job without being a member.”  That is NOT the “right-to-work” policies of conservatives; IT IS THE UNION AGENDA OF LIBERALSRead up on the Obama NLRB lawsuit against Boeing for daring to open a plant in a non-union right to work state and explain how we’re not seeing the same story all over again.  Obama is dictating (like the dictator he is) to a private company while unions say “if you aint union, then you don’t get no job.”

Nietzsche – a hero of Nazis AND leftists ever since – put it best.  He pointed out that the artist was not only the creator of beautiful objects but of values.  He pointed out that cultural change requires artistic change: “Change of values – that is a change of creators.”  And this change to new values had to involve the breaking of old values.  As Nietzsche put it, “Whoever must be a creator always annihilates.”  Destroying the old order and giving birth to the new attracted ALL the cutting-edge leftists of the day.

Homosexuals, artists, and all the other leftists and leftist movements of the day joyfully joined Hitler.  But once Hitler gained power and forged his own social order, many of these began to encounter brutal censorship.  Why?  Simply because when these people and movements were attacking the old order, they were useful, but once Hitler began to impose his own order, they who attacked order became a threat to be repressed.  To put it in other words, they were hung on their own petard.

To whatever extent that Hitler crushed the trade unions that had eagerly helped him gain power, he crushed many other useful idiots the same way.  That participation in their own destruction is part of the ultimate death-wish that is liberalism.  We’re seeing it now as liberals routinely support Islamic radicals who would gleefully murder every single one of these tools the moment they gain real power.

That said, there is also a deliberate and fundamental misunderstanding of fascism by the left.  If you read leftists, you come away thinking that somehow “fascism” is the takeover of a state by corporations.  But stop and think: Hitler, Himmler, Eichmann, Hess and all the other key Nazis WEREN’T corporate CEOs who took over the state; THEY WERE SOCIALIST POLITICIANS WHO TOOK OVER THE CORPORATIONS.  They usurped the corporations and FORCED them to perform THEIR agenda.  They either performed the Nazis’ will or they were simply taken away from their rightful owners and nationalized.

And to the degree that German crony capitalist corporations helped Hitler in his rise to power, THEY WERE JUST MORE USEFUL IDIOTS.

The same sort of takeover of German corporations by socialists is building in America.  Take Maxine Waters, a liberal Democrat, as the perfect example.  Whad did she say of the oil companies?

“This liberal will be all about socializing … uh uh … would be about … basically … taking over … and the government running all of your companies.”

THAT’S what Hitler did, too.  Hitler got this power through regulations that required corporations to do his bidding, just like Obama has repeatedly done.

And then consider how willing Maxine Waters used “crony capitalism” (which is the essence of developing fascism) to directly personally benefit even as she shaped the banking industry.

The Democrat party is the party of socialism.  It is the party of Marxism.  It is the party of fascism.

Here are some pictures from the latest May Day rally, along with a brief description of what is going on.  For the record, this is from an email that was forwarded to me.  I did not write it or generate the pictures, but could not provide a “link”:

WAKE UP AMERICA!!!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


When I tell people that public political rallies are
more and more being led by communists and socialists, most folks simply don’t
believe me. Aw, come on, you’re just giving decent protesters an extreme
label,
they say. No, actually, I’m not: The communists freely and proudly
declare their affiliation.
And the SEIU has no problem marching arm-in-arm
with them.

“Smash Capitalism” is a slogan the SEIU apparently
endorses — or at least doesn’t mind marching behind.
In case you think the
SEIU is some peripheral out-of-the-mainstream organization:
The SEIU
devoted $28 million to
Obama’s campaign
, making the
SEIU “the organization that
spent the most to help Barack Obama get elected president
.” Furthermore, who is Obama’s favorite White House guest and one of his
closest confidants?
The individual who has visited the Obama White House the
most: SEIU President Andy Stern, who has visited
53 times
.
Obama is closely linked with the SEIU.
The SEIU is closely
linked with communists.
You do the math.

Did I say communists? Sorry, I meant Communists (with a capital “C”).
Note how the
Communists that day (like the women on the right in this photo) carried solid
red flags symbolizing their ideology. Keep that in mind as you view the next
photo…

One of the SEIU leaders picked up a Communist flag and
led a contingent of rank-and-file SEIU members. Everyone was OK with
that.

The way you can identify the SEIU members in all these
pictures: They’re the ones in purple t-shirts carrying blue-and-yellow
signs.

So, as you can see, the communists and the union
members intermingled as the march progressed.
In case you were wondering what
the SEIU was saying during all of this, here’s a video of the SEIU
chanting “Legalization or REVOLUTION!” Clear enough?

And it wasn’t just the SEIU at the march — other
“normal” unions like the AFL-CIO were on hand as well.
There were plenty of
teachers’ unions attending too, and they brought along many of their public
school students for some good old-fashioned communist indoctrination,.

Most of the idiots in the US who walk around with Che
buttons or Che shirts do so simply because they foolishly think he’s “cool.”
These hardcore communists carry his image not because he’s “cool,” but because
he was one of the most radical revolutionaries who ever lived. Right up there
with Lenin, apparently.

In order to have a more “civil dialogue” with their
political opponents, the marchers made a puppet of a demonic Statue of Liberty
aligned with the “Tea Bag Party.”

OK, I guess Hitler comparisons are off the table for
now — too many people have called it taboo. So what’s second best? The
Devil!

Tell me the honest truth: If the Tea Party had marched in a rally
behind a banner held up by fascists or neo-Nazis, don’t you think it would have
been national news? But the nation’s biggest Obama-supporting political
organization marched behind banners like these, and not a peep about it in the
media. Hmmmm….

Until recently, the average American has regarded
fascists and communists as equally noxious and equally malignant. As well they
should have. But the drive these days by the left side of the spectrum is to
make communism and socialism somewhat less remarkable and more palatable. For
two years they angrily denied the Tea Party accusation that Obama’s policies and
supporters had a socialist bent. But in recent months, as the accusation had
started to gain traction, the new leftist tactic has become: “What’s so bad
about socialism after all? You’re demonizing a very popular and respectable
ideology!”

The very first picture above brings the riots of the left in Wisconsin to use fascist tactics to block the elected democratic process in that state.

The war has already started, and the people who say today – “Because workers of the world unite it’s not just a slogan anymore“ and “We’re trying to use the power of persuasion. And if that doesn’t work, we’re going to use the persuasion of power “ – are the ones who started it.  They are saying to one another:  “There are actually extraordinary things we could do right now to start to destabilize the folks that are in power and start to rebuild a movement“; and “you could put banks at the edge of insolvency again.“

These are people with no morals beyond the morality of fascism.  They want to impose their will on you.  They want to take what is yours and give it to themselves.  They want to make the state god while THEY run that state; and then force you to come to them and devote yourself to “the state” in order to have a job, health care, food, life itself.

The beast is coming.  And when he comes, Democrats will be the Party that cheers him and votes for him.

The Democrat Party has become the party of genuine evil in America.  A vote for Democrats has become a vote for hell itself.

Stop and think about why the union leader in New Jersey demonized Gov. Chris Christie: Christie wants to save his state from certain financial implosion.  He wants to restructure government union benefits that are giving many “public employees” a hundred thousand dollars in benefits a year while they are retiring in their mid-fifties.  These unions want to leach off the system until it collapses.  And it WILL collapse: in California ALONE the public employees’ accumulation of unfunded liabilities is $500 BILLION.  The unfunded liabilities of all the states easily exceeds $1 trillion.

Which of these “two Americas” is fascist?  The one that wants to kill America and impose a totalitarian system in its place, or the one that is trying to embrace the vision of our founding fathers just short of way too late?

Update, June 20: The overwhelmingly Democrat-controlled New Jersey Senate just agreed with Governor Chris Christie on the reforms that he was called a “Nazi” for proposing.  If you want to see the Nazis in the story, look at Christopher Shelton, look at his union and look at the Democrat Party that is controlled by these unions.  THAT’S where you’ll find all the Nazis.

Obama Continues To Tell Shocking Demonstrable Lies: This Time About The Border Fence.

May 11, 2011

Let’s take a look at how Obama deceives and lies in his campaign mode:

May 10, 2011
Obama Claims Border Fence ‘Basically Complete’ But It’s Only 5% Finished

Obama said today in El Paso…”They wanted more agents on the border. Well, we now have more boots on the ground on the southwest border than at any time in our history. The Border Patrol has 20,000 agents – more than twice as many as there were in 2004, a build up that began under President Bush and that we have continued. They wanted a fence. Well, that fence is now basically complete.”

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 staff at the Department of Homeland Security, just 5 percent of the double-layer fencing is complete, only 36.3 miles.

The Government Accountability Office (GAO), Congress’s investigative arm, reported in early 2009 that only 32 miles of double-layer fencing had been built. That means under President Obama, only 4.3 miles of double layer fencing has been built. This is woefully inadequate.

These aren’t just little lies.  They are gargantuan lies.  Obama is counting on the fact that 1) most Americans are ignorant; and 2) the mainstream media has become a leftist ideological propaganda tool.

And keep in mind, that 700 mile fence that Obama lies about being “basically complete” itself would only have run across 35% of our 2,000 mile border even if Obama had allowed it to be built.  Instead of saying he did something that he clearly did not do.

And we find of that 2,000 mile border, only 873 miles – just 44% – are deemed to be under “operational control” by the Border Patrol.

Obama called – again deceitfully and falsely – for a rational debate on the issue of border security.  Let’s see what he considers “rational”:

“…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 suspect there will be some who will try to move the goal posts one more time (someone in the crowd yells “racists!”) They said we need to triple the border patrol. Or now they’ll say we need to quadruple the border patrol. Or 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. But the truth is the measures we’ve put in place are getting results.”

President Obama in El Paso, TX

Really, Hussein?  Republicans have been calling for moats and alligators, have they?  I’d like to see that bill. 

But if Republicans AREN’T pushing for a moat with alligators in it, it is difficult to have a meaningful debate with a liar who demagogues straw men.

Do we need to triple our border security?  Do we need to “quadruple the border patrol”?  Or more?  Maybe we do.  If we need to quadruple, then we quadruple; whatever it takes to get the job done.  Because we need to get control over our borders, rather than merely demonize and politically demagogue the people who proclaim how out-of-control our borders truly are.

Pinal County, Arizona Sheriff Paul Babeu says of Obama and Janet Napalitano, “They’re divorced from reality.”  In a separate interview, Sheriff Babeu pointed out that the people on the front lines in the border states are crying for help, but instead of helping, the federal government sends in batallions of attorneys to fight those states, and further undermines the rule of law, and actually gives the states signs that warn citizens that their own country isn’t theirs anymore:

We need a leader, and what we have is a naked liar and a shameless political demagogue.

Lying deceitful hypocrite liberals like Obama frame the border issue as a moral one.  But if Hispanics voted Republican, NOBODY would be louder in crying for them to be expelled from America than Democrats.  As it is, we have a massive invasion overwhelming our social support services and our budgets, and Democrats are rooting for the implosion of our nation because doing so helps them politically.

Barack Obama is an evil man.  He is a liar without shame or honor.  He is the kind of liar who builds 4.3 miles of a 700 mile fence and then says he did everything Republicans asked him to do.

Obama Continues To Reveal He Is The Lowest Form Of Demagogue

April 20, 2011

CBS News had the story:

President Obama invoked the 2007 collapse of the Interstate 35-W bridge in Minneapolis while criticizing cuts to infrastructure in the Republican budget plan at a town hall meeting on Tuesday.

“According to the Republican budget that was passed, for example, we would have to eliminate transportation funding by a third,” he said. “…You remember when that bridge in Minnesota collapsed with all those people on it and there was a big hue and cry, how could this happen in America?”

Obama pointed at the Republican agenda to reign in the utterly out-of-control federal spending that will be absolutely 100% guaranteed to implode America’s economy unless that spending is reigned in, and then demonized the Republicans for a previous bridge collapse.

But as happens far too often in the mainstream media propaganda that often gets to pass for “news,” CBS didn’t fully report the facts.

You see, Obama lied.  Because that’s what he does.  And that collapsed bridge he demagogues to demonize Republicans for – claiming that their budget cuts would eliminate maintenance – didn’t actually have anything whatsoever to do with maintenance:

NTSB: Design errors caused Minn. bridge collapse

WASHINGTON (AP) — The deadly collapse of a Minneapolis bridge last year began at steel plates in a main truss, attributable to a design flaw and not corrosion, federal safety investigators said Thursday.

National Transportation Safety Board investigators said the bridge collapse was unavoidable once U-10 steel gusset plates failed at the U-10 connection, near the center of the bridge. Investigators also ruled out any pre-existing cracking as a factor in the accident.

A hearing into the collapse quickly focused on the U-10 gusset plates on the Interstate 35W bridge. The safety board as far back as January had identified design flaws in the plates as a critical factor in the collapse.

CNS actually does a little investigation and reports the facts in an article entitled, “Obama Misstates Cause of Minn. Bridge Collapse–Falsely Blames Insufficient Federal Spending“:

Contrary to Obama’s townhall speeech, the bridge did not collapse because of “deteriorating” infrastructure. According to the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), the collapse was due to a design flaw, not to a lack of maintenance.

“The National Transportation Safety Board determines that the probable cause of the collapse of the I-35W bridge in Minneapolis, Minnesota, was the inadequate load capacity, due to a design error,” the NTSB states in its 2008 report on the incident.

In fact, the NTSB reported that on the day of the collapse, the bridge was in the process of being refurbished, further contradicting Obama’s claim that the collapse was evidence of a lack of infrastructure spending.

“On the day of the collapse, roadway work was underway on the I35W bridge, and four of the eight travel lanes (two outside lanes northbound and two inside lanes southbound) were closed to traffic,” reads the NTSB report.

If Obama were a halfway honest man, he would apologize for his vicious demonization that is entirely based on a lie.  But he’s not a halfway honest man.  And so he will count on the fact that the mainstream media will report his lies and not bother to correct them.  Because they are leftwing ideologue propagandists, and that’s how they roll.

You want to know something else I don’t understand?  It’s why we still need so much money for mainstenance projects.  Remember Obams’s so-called “stimulus” and how it was all going to go to such “shovel-ready projects”?  According to the CBO, Obama’s stimulus will cost $3.27 TRILLION.

Where did that money go, Barry Hussein?  Why is it that if Republicans cut so much as a dime, bridges across America will collapse?

Then there’s Obama’s demagogic remarks about border security and immigration:

“The question is going to be, are we going to be able to find some Republicans who can partner with me and others to get this done once and for all instead of
using it as a political football?”

But Obama had total Democrat control of Congress for TWO YEARS.  And he utterly failed to make any kind of serious bipartisan overture whatsoever on immigration reform during a period when Republicans had little chance of stopping much of anything.  He is simply lying and blaming Republicans for his own failure.  Which is to say, the only one using this issue as a “political football” is the guy demonizing others for doing what he himself is clearly doing.

You can again see just how utterly and vindictively partisan and demagogic Obama is in this exchange over the fact that Obama had a major meeting on immigration reform, and refused to invite so much as a single governor from one of the border states:

GRETA VAN SUSTEREN, FOX NEWS HOST: Did you hear what is  going on in Washington? President Obama is talking about immigration reform. The president held a meeting  today at the White House to discuss the broken immigration system. He met with a  bipartisan group. Guess what, he didn’t invite any governors from border states.  Why not?

Arizona Governor Jan Brewer joins us live from  Phoenix. Governor, did you miss your invitation? Did you decline your  invitation? Why weren’t you here at the White House to talk about immigration  reform?

GOV. JAN BREWER, R-ARIZ.: I wish I would have been  invited. No, I do not – I did not get an invite. You would have thought one of  the governors would have been invited since we are on the frontlines fighting  for security there. It was a little bit of a snub, if you will. I think that on  behalf of myself, I think I could have added insight to the situation that  Arizona certainly is facing.

VAN SUSTEREN: I looked at the White House press release. Of  the people who were invited — the category of those — it says stakeholders  expected to attend. I looked up stakeholders to see whether you might be a  stakeholder or Governor Rick Perry. It says a person or group that has  investment share or interest in something as in the business or industry. I  guess it is someone who has a strong interest in the topic. He must think you  don’t have any interest in the issue or you would have been invited.

BREWER: That is very unfortunate if that’s what he believes.  I feel Arizona, I believe I and Rick Perry and certainly the governors on the  border have been leading the fight. We’ve been bringing the message to America.  And I think that we should have been afforded that opportunity to be at the  table to help him understand the situation that we want straightened out.

VAN SUSTEREN: Let me tell you who he did think was a  stakeholder and has a huge interest in this partial list — Mayor Bloomberg, who  of course is the mayor who sent investigators down to Arizona to investigate you  about guns, your state, the former police chief of New York Bill Brown,  Secretary Michael Chertoff, former secretary of Homeland Security.

Then he invited Senator Mel Martinez, former United States senator. Here’s  another interesting one, Greg Page chairman and CEO of Cargill. I thought that’s  an odd one. I understand why, because Cargill was raided in 2007 by immigration  and ice for violations having to do with immigration. They probably have the  inside scoop on that one.

Al Sharpton was invited. The CEO of Facebook, another one. Arnold  Schwarzenegger, the former governor of California not the current governor, and  Richard Trumka, who is AFL-CIO union leader. Those are some of the people that  the president thinks has a greater interest than you do.

BREWER: That’s an unfortunate list as far as I’m concerned.  I didn’t know he had extended the invitation that this meeting was going to take  place.

But it seems by the list and what has been reported back to me this afternoon,  it is people that looking at that wonderful word “comprehensive immigration  reform.” It has nothing to do with what we really need to have done, and that is  to get our borders secured.

I think they are looking to try to talk about amnesty and all these other  issues and the dream act. None of these things in my opinion are going to take  place until we get our borders secured. I don’t think the American people want  to address anything until we feel secure. Our citizens need to feel secure in  their homes. It just continues to grow with the issue of people coming across  our borders illegal, the drug cartels.

VAN SUSTEREN: I may disagree with you a little bit. I would  like a solution that is complete and which protects our borders, protects  Americans and handles all the issues. I would like to see it put behind us. I to  the president’s speech at American university last summer to hear it. I did want  to hear what he said he was going to do.

We haven’t heard anything. He a Democratic house and Senate we don’t hear  anything until now as he gets ready to launch his campaign. And now things have  changed. Now we are hearing it again. I’m deeply disturbed. I think this is  talk. I think his guest list supports that because this is not bringing people  to the table who have real interests in this.

BREWER: I absolutely agree with you. The bottom line is that  he has a different agenda than what the American people have. Unfortunately, we  keep talking and we keep contacting him with our concerns, really no response,  no concern. Of course now we are in the election period so we now he’s going to  be standing up and talking about he’s going to do this and that. He’s had two  years to deliver what he promised two years ago and hasn’t delivered.

So we want our borders secured. I truly believe that the majority of us are  not going to discuss anything else in regards to what his agenda is, until we  get satisfaction with security at our borders.

This is beyond ridiculous.  If you have any intention whatsoever of coming to some kind of agreement, you invite the major decision makers.  But Obama doesn’t want solutions; he wants to prevent solutions and then blame Republicans for the well that Obama personally poisoned.

Last week Obama gave a hateful speech in which he blasted Republicans as the party that wanted to kill old people and children with autism.  During a point in the health care debate, when Obama needed to appear bi-partisan, Obama said:

We’re not going to be able to do anything about any of these entitlements if what we do is characterize whatever proposals are put out there as, ‘Well, you know, that’s — the other party’s being irresponsible. The other party is trying to hurt our senior citizens. That the other party is doing X, Y, Z.”

And then he proceeded to do the very thing that he himself had said would undermine and poison the process.  Rep. Paul Ryan said correctly:

“What we got yesterday was the opposite of what he said is necessary to fix this problem.”

And, again, Obama doesn’t WANT to fix problems.  Obama wants to demonize and demagogue and lie and accuse and blame.

We can and should go back to 2006 remarks made by Obama when he personally demonized George Bush for raising the debt celing.  Obama demagogued:

“The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies. … Increasing America’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that ‘the buck stops here. Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better.”

Now the same weaselly demagogue is saying that anyone who acted like Obama himself acted would be an un-American traitor.

It just never ends with this guy.

Obama ATF ACTUALLY FACILITATED Guns Going To Violent Mexican Drug Gangs!!!

March 1, 2011

This is just beyond amazing.  The Obama administration couldn’t be more despicable or more incompetent.

From CBS:

February 23, 2011
Gunrunning scandal uncovered at the ATF
Program aimed at stopping the flow of weapons from the US to Mexico may have allegedly had the opposite effect
By Sharyl Attkisson

(CBSNews)  WASHINGTON – Keeping American weapons from getting into the hands of Mexican gangs is the goal of a program called “Project Gunrunner.” But critics say it’s doing exactly the opposite. CBS News investigative correspondent Sharyl Attkisson reports on what she found.

December 14, 2010. The place: a dangerous smuggling route in Arizona not far from the border. A special tactical border squad was on patrol when gunfire broke out and agent Brian Terry was killed.

Kent, Brian’s brother, said “he was my only brother. That was the only brother I had. I’m lost.”

The assault rifles found at the murder were traced back to a U.S. gun shop. Where they came from and how they got there is a scandal so large, some insiders say it surpasses the shoot-out at Ruby Ridge and the deadly siege at Waco.

To understand why, it helps to know something about “Project Gunrunner” an operation run by the ATF the Federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms.

Read the indictment

“Project Gunrunner” deployed new teams of agents to the southwest border. The idea: to stop the flow of weapons from the US to Mexico’s drug cartels. But in practice, sources tell CBS News, ATF’s actions had the opposite result: they allegedly facilitated the delivery of thousands of guns into criminal hands.

CBS News wanted to ask ATF officials about the case, but they wouldn’t agree to an interview. We were able to speak to six veteran ATF agents and executives involved. They don’t want to be quoted by name for fear of retaliation. These are their allegations.

In late 2009, ATF was alerted to suspicious buys at seven gun shops in the Phoenix area. Suspicious because the buyers paid cash, sometimes brought in paper bags. And they purchased classic “weapons of choice” used by Mexican drug traffickers – semi-automatic versions of military type rifles and pistols.

Sources tell CBS News several gun shops wanted to stop the questionable sales, but ATF encouraged them to continue.

Jaime Avila was one of the suspicious buyers. ATF put him in its suspect database in January of 2010. For the next year, ATF watched as Avila and other suspects bought huge quantities of weapons supposedly for “personal use.” They included 575 AK-47 type semi-automatic rifles.

ATF managers allegedly made a controversial decision: allow most of the weapons on the streets. The idea, they said, was to gather intelligence and see where the guns ended up. Insiders say it’s a dangerous tactic called letting the guns, “walk.”

One agent called the strategy “insane.” Another said: “We were fully aware the guns would probably be moved across the border to drug cartels where they could be used to kill.”

On the phone, one Project Gunrunner source (who didn’t want to be identified) told us just how many guns flooded the black market under ATF’s watchful eye. “The numbers are over 2,500 on that case by the way. That’s how many guns were sold – including some 50-calibers they let walk.”

50-caliber weapons are fearsome. For months, ATF agents followed 50-caliber Barrett rifles and other guns believed headed for the Mexican border, but were ordered to let them go. One distraught agent was often overheard on ATF radios begging and pleading to be allowed to intercept transports. The answer: “Negative. Stand down.”

CBS News has been told at least 11 ATF agents and senior managers voiced fierce opposition to the strategy. “It got ugly…” said one. There was “screaming and yelling” says another. A third warned: “this is crazy, somebody is gonna to get killed.”

Sure enough, the weapons soon began surfacing at crime scenes in Mexico – dozens of them sources say – including shootouts with government officials.

One agent argued with a superior asking, “are you prepared to go to the funeral of a federal officer killed with one of these guns?” Another said every time there was a shooting near the border, “we would all hold our breath hoping it wasn’t one of ‘our’ guns.”

Then, Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry was murdered. The serial numbers on the two assault rifles found at the scene matched two rifles ATF watched Jaime Avila buy in Phoenix nearly a year before. Officials won’t answer whether the bullet that killed Terry came from one of those rifles. But the nightmare had come true: “walked” guns turned up at a federal agent’s murder.

“You feel like s***. You feel for the parents,” one ATF veteran told us.

Hours after Agent Terry was gunned down, ATF finally arrested Avila. They’ve since indicted 34 suspected gunrunners in the same group. But the indictment makes no mention of Terry’s murder, and no one is charged in his death.

Kent Terry said of his brother, “He’d want them to tell the truth. That’s one thing my brother didn’t like was a liar. And that’s what he’d want. He’d want the truth.

In a letter, the Justice Department which oversees ATF says the agency has never knowingly allowed the sale of assault weapons to suspected gunrunners.

You want the truth?  The truth is that when you allow liberals to run any thing they will run it like the moral idiots they are.

This is the worst and most breathtakingly incompetent disaster since Ruby Ridge and Waco, we are told by CBS.  And I am here to point out that it is absolutely no coincidence whatsoever that all three of these beyond godawful disgraces of justice occurred under the leadership of DEMOCRATS.  Bill Clinton and Attorney General Janet Reno were our “Dear Leaders” for the destructions of justice at Ruby Ridge and Waco.

the problem, as always, isn’t our laws.  The problem is that we have corrupt and incompetent liberals “enforcing” our laws.

And Democrats are doing the same disgusting job running our economy as they are running our justice.  If the media wasn’t biased and frankly immoral, Democrats wouldn’t be able to get elected to sweep the streets after the horses and the elephants went by in the parade.

That said, I’m surprised and gladdened that CBS pointed out just how awful this revelation truly is.  Somebody actually finally reported the facts in their historical context.  You sure don’t see that very often these days.

You want the truth?  The truth is that Attorney General Holder needs to resign in disgrace.  This pile of slime has already long-since demonstrated that he has no interest in justice.  And that was before he came out and said he woun’t be defending the law of the land, passed by the Congress of the United States and signed by President Clinton.

You want the truth?  The truth is that every single one of these government unionized ATF bureaucrats needs to do hard time in prison with the same sorts of murderous thugs they actually helped arm.

There are obviously some good agents at the ATF.  But as the above article demonstrates, good can do little when evil runs the show.  And evil is running the show in the Obama administration.

I’m sorry.  As I think of Barack Obama and Eric Holder giving the drug gangs the guns that were used to murder Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry, I’ve got to go throw up.

Here are some other things that agents are warning us about that our “dear leaders” won’t pay attention to until after it’s too late:

EXCLUSIVE: A book celebrating suicide bombers has been found in the Arizona desert just north of the U.S.- Mexican border, authorities tell Fox News.

The book, “In Memory of Our Martyrs,” was spotted Tuesday by a U.S. Border Patrol agent out of the Casa Grande substation who was patrolling a route known for smuggling illegal immigrants and drugs.

And then there’s this bit about agents warning us of radioactive dirty bombs coming into our ports:

But don’t worry.  Nothing bad can ever go wrong.  Our president is a messiah!
