Illegal invaders become “Americans-in-Waiting”

February 26, 2015

Americans_in_Waiting2

Direct from the White House website comes this load of double-talk from the Council of Economic Advisors.

“The President is continuing to take action, within his legal authority, to fix our broken immigration system.  Today, the Administration announced a final rule that will allow spouses of certain high-skilled workers to contribute to the economy while they wait to obtain lawful permanent residence status (or a “green card”) through their employer. America needs a 21st century immigration system that lives up to our heritage as a nation of laws and a nation of immigrants—and that grows our economy. This change, as well as the other actions announced by the President this past November, will do just that.”

Sprinkled liberally throughout this piece of flagrant deception, “Taking Action to Unlock the Economic Contributions of Americans-in-Waiting,” (from which we have excerpted this paragraph) are the words “our broken immigration system.”

America’s citizens know full well our immigration system isn’t broken. The only thing “broken” is the will of Obamacrats to enforce it. 

When the latest Labor statistics show Americans are still unemployed and underemployed in record numbers —-  with many forced to accept lower paying jobs for which they are over-qualified —- in this still fragile economy, why import workers to compete against our own citizens?

On a good day, and trying hard, we couldn’t make this stuff up.

As you watch this video compilation, pay attention to his words as Obama said, “Ultimately, our nation, like all nations, has the right and obligation to control its border and set laws for residency and citizenship.” He was right then. He is distorting the U.S. Constitution, usurping congressional authority and corrupting our generous legal immigration process now.


WH terror warning: focus on “right wing” threat — again

February 22, 2015

Obama’s former DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano issued similar report in 2009

A new administration report on security threats surfaced this past week as Barack Obama was wrapping up his three-day summit on extremism during which the words “Islamic extremists, jihadists or radical fundamental Islamic terrorists” were never uttered. Invited guests at the conference included Pro-jihad, anti-Israel Islamic clerics according to this well researched article in One News Now.

The deflecting report issued by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) instead redirects urgency toward domestic terrorist movements —- “right wingers”  —- said to be engaged in a sovereign citizen extremist movement.

 CNN which reviewed the intelligent assessment that was not made public, reports “federal and local law enforcement groups view the domestic terror threat from sovereign citizen groups as equal to — and in some cases greater than — the threat from foreign Islamic terror groups, such as ISIS, that garner more public attention.”

Apparently missed were the grisly reports last week that fundamental Islamic terrorists escalated their ongoing bloody carnage by burning alive 40 caged Iraqis. Earlier the civilized world was horrified to see photos of the beheadings of 21 Egyptian Christians by these same ISIS fanatics. The insulting report targeting Americans comes as ISIS madness continues to spiral in unimagined ways.

In April 2009, Janet Napolitano, then Obama’s Secretary of Homeland Security, released this report on homegrown terrorists, singling out our own returning war vets, comparing them to Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh.

Is it any wonder former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani questioned Obama’s love of America?

“We are not at war with Islam,” Obama declared, setting the tone for the conference. “We are at war with people who have perverted Islam.” Sounding a lot like Obama equating Islamic terrorist to evil done in the name of Christ (video) at the recent Prayer Breakfast, Vice President Joe Biden used his appearance at the summit to compare the virulent rise in Islamic terror attacks to right-wing extremists and militias who commit violence “in the name of the Bible.”


Fed. Judge stalls Obama’s amnesty executive order

February 18, 2015

Obama unable to suspend deportations

U.S. District Court Judge Andrew S. Hanen’s opinion and order cuts to the chase from page one of the 123-page document as he delivers a blow to Barack Obama‘s executive order on illegals, defining the issue in these terms:

This is a case in which twenty-six states or their representatives are seeking injunctive relief against the United States and several officials of the Department of Homeland Security to prevent them from implementing a program titled “Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents.” This program is designed to provide legal presence to over four million individuals who are currently in the country illegally, and would enable these individuals to obtain a variety of both state and federal benefits. It continues here.

Judge Hanen noted that the Department of Homeland Security “legislated a substantial rule without complying with the procedural requirements under the Administrative Procedure Act” because the executive amnesty provisions did not undergo “notice-and-comment rule making procedure.” He concluded that the Department of Homeland Security is “not rewriting laws,” but actually “creating them from scratch.” He also determined that Obama’s executive amnesty is a “complete abdication” of immigration enforcement.

Hanen said that if the program were allowed to proceed at this point, “The genie would be impossible to put back into the bottle.”  This video montage of Obama mocking the very executive orders he has been working to implement leaves no doubt he knew he was acting outside the framework of the law.

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott is no stranger to suing the Obama administration, having filed more than 30 lawsuits while serving as Texas‘ Attorney General. In this case, he filed the lawsuit challenging Barack Obama‘s executive order and was  joined by numerous other states. The collective Plaintiffs include the States of Texas, Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Kansas, Louisiana, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Utah, West Virginia, Wisconsin., Michigan, Mississippi, Maine, North Carolina, Tennessee and Nevada.

The Obama administration is expected to appeal the ruling to the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans.


Wising up: Ivy League students reject socialism

University President says health fee is “for the common good”

Cornell University students are obviously smart enough to know they shouldn’t have to pay a penalty for not buying the school’s health insurance if they already have coverage, but that’s exactly what a new policy at the Ivy League school requires.

The $350 “health fee” for opting out of the school’s insurance plan was announced in a memo from school President David Skorton, who is also a medical doctor. It was posted Feb. 5, on Cornell’s website, according to higher education blog The College Fix. But the implications are just beginning to sink in with the student body, and many attending the Ithaca, N.Y., school are now staging protests. Under Obama’s Affordable Care Act, students must have insurance, but making those already covered pay an extra fee to skip the school’s plan is rightly getting them riled.

According to Skorton, the fee will affect approximately 70% of undergrads, 10% of graduate students, and 30% of professional students. Given the number of students in each of these categories, it is expected to raise about $3.9 million. Additionally, students will have a $10 co-pay for visits to the campus’ health center.

In his statement Skorton noted that Cornell’s health services funding has been “strained” in light of “rising health insurance costs.” His email cites “inequitable access to care” as the reason for introducing this student health fee.

Students who do not opt in to the $2,352 plan will get hit with the $350 fee, which “most likely” won’t be covered by financial aid, according to The Cornell Review. The newspaper said the university plan is run through Aetna, whose CEO is a Cornell MBA grad.

This gut-punch is Skorton’s parting gift to Cornell’s students. The Smithsonian Institution’s Board of Regents named him to lead the world’s largest museum and research complex. He will assume his new post July 2015.

“David Skorton has demonstrated keen vision and skilled leadership as the president of two great American universities,” Supreme Court Chief Justice and Smithsonian Chancellor John Roberts lauded in a statement. “His character, experience and talents are an ideal match for the Smithsonian’s broad and dynamic range of interests, endeavors and aspirations.”

Justice Roberts, it will long be remembered, was the deciding vote on Obamacare. The Republican appointee stunned the nation as he sided with the liberals on the court.

It would be interesting to know what percentage of these now protesting Ivy Leaguers voted for Barack Obama —- and if those who did would do so again.


Breitbart covers AZ’s education standoffs

February 15, 2015

All dots lead back to John McCain

Breitbart’s Big Government, a premier national news site, finds Arizona’s Douglas/Ducey battle worthy of coverage. The report, Battle Lines Drawn Between Anti-Common Core Superintendent and Arizona Governor covers newly elected Gov. Doug Ducey’s overreaches and Superintendent of Public Instruction Diane Douglas’ actions and responses. 

Tucked in among the facts most state residents have been following and on which we have reported, is a fascinating connection that has previously been missed. In addition to Ducey bringing Common Core enthusiast Lisa Graham Keegan onboard his new education subcommittee, he has included Matthew Ladner, described as “a close associate of Common Core champion Jeb Bush.”

Keegan is a former-RINO-turned-Independent who endorsed Douglas’ radical leftist educrat challenger while lobbing insults at Douglas. She met the threshold of Republican establishment allegiance by serving as education advisor for John McCain’s failed presidential campaign.

And Matthew Ladner? Prior to joining the Foundation for Excellence in Education, founded by Jeb Bush and funded by liberals, Ladner worked for Clint Bolick at the Alliance for School Choice. Bolick then moved to the Libertarian Goldwater Institute, oddly favored by the leftwing Arizona Republic newspaper. Ladner followed. Clint Bolick and Jeb Bush co-authored a book, “Immigration Wars: Forging an American Solution,” which in retrospect sounds like a blueprint for Obama’s egregious amnesty actions.

We’ll connect the dots. Arizona’s junior Sen. Jeff Flake is John McCain’s doppelganger. Both are longtime proponents of amnesty for illegals. Flake, supported by McCain for the seat previously held by Jon Kyl, is a former Executive Director of the Goldwater Institute. Clint Bolick’s wife has twice run for a state legislative seat, losing both times.  This 2010 event was a Who’s Who of well-heeled McCain supporters. In this short video clip, Bush calls illegal immigration “an act of love” that “shouldn’t rile people up.’ Here Bush and Bolick openly push for amnesty minus the pretenses.

This is a gang that shoots in one direction —– aiming back at the law-abiding Arizona taxpayers forced to fund their schemes, while charging forward to open the border floodgates. If one doesn’t reach the destination, reinforcements are supplied by the Chambers of Commerce, and their illegal alien profiteer members.
