The clock is slowly ticking towards 8 p.m. ET, is this the time and date that will be inscribed on the death certificate of the Constitutional Republic of the United States of America? Or is this the date the the "Silent Majority" finally wakes up and helps the true patriots throw off the shackles of Progressivism that have been wrapped around our inalienable rights over the last 100 odd years?
A lot will depend on what construction Obama comes up with for those that are already here. The recent leaks point to some kind of work permit for families with children born here who are accepted, wrongly in my opinion, as US citizens. But I have said before, it is not realistic to expect a draconian response to these families. So a fair approach is to provide a work permit allowing them to pay taxes and to contribute to Social Security. Also they should pay a fine for the taxes missed in the years prior to this amnesty. They must also show that they and their family have been here a significant number of years (the actual number of years should be decided by Congress). And any government related support, welfare, healthcare subsidies, in-state tuition, etc., should only be eligible after the same number of years as legal immigrants, e.g. those earning a work visa or green card.
For employers we should insist on the use of e-verify and the application of stiff fines for those caught using any of the remaining illegals, from small landscaping companies to large manufacturing companies.
So we wait with bated breath to hear what will be presented tonight, and pray that we are not being "Grubered" yet again. After all, how often have the statements from this regime turned out to lack any veracity what so ever!
And if Obama presents himself as an emperor and makes a huge power grab, we will all have enough back bone to stand up to him and his cronies. The regime, supported by its lackeys of the Lame Stream Media, seem to think that they can pull the wool over the eyes of the "stupid Americans". Hopefully the GOP is wise to this trick and does not fall for the " GOP shut down the government" story. There are rumors that the GOP is looking at moving away from Omnibus funding bills, and going back to the old system of individual budgets by department. This means the GOP can add riders to the budget to ensure that the appropriations are only used for closely defined purposes. If King Barry then refuses to sign the bill because it excluded some funding that he requires, e.g. funds to print and distribute work permit cards, it is not the whole government that gets shut down, and it will be obvious to Americans who is being petulant. This will not work for every department, because some departments are funded by user fees. But I am sure that there must be some clever people in the GOP that can find a solution for those exceptions.
Separate, smaller funding bills will allow inclusion of riders that repeal parts of ObamaCare, for example the Medical Device Tax. Slowly removing the funding legs on which this travesty stands will help lead to a final total repeal and replace with a more practical solution. With the recent revelations about the deceit used to build and sell ObamaCare to Americans, this will bring more kudos to the GOP that will help them in the 2016 elections.
In the past the GOP and conservatives have fallen into the trap set by the DemocRATS by meeting their issues head on. We need to take the time to analyze their strategy and then design a counter attack that undermines the strategy and brings the GOP to their desired results.
But even stranger if you add in the lack of any reporting about our so called post-racial dictator meeting with any of Officer Wilson's family or representatives. Maybe that did happen but was so super secret that it was never uncovered. Or could it be that the squatter in the WH is giving up all pretense at being multiracial and is just doing what He wants?
For a team that ran such tightly messaged and successful campaigns, it seems as if they have taken their eyes off the ball right now. Or maybe they got bored and went back to playing with their X-boxes.
After the recent elections, Caliph Hussein reluctantly dragged his sorry donkey in front of the microphones to say that he would deign to work with Congress and especially the Republicans. He expected that there would still be some topics on which he could not agree with these weird people, so admonished them to bring bills of a bipartisan nature which would be easy to sign.
Right now it looks as if the first bill to be placed on his desk, begging for the consideration of his scribble will be a very bipartisan bill. Insiders in DC are already talking about the possibility that it might even pull enough DemocRAT votes to make it veto proof. But if not, our dictator has already announced that he will veto this bill.
Let me see, so what he told us "stupid" Americans is that he is prepared to work with the Republicans, and that they had better bring him bills that are bipartisan, but if he still does not like them, he will exercise his infinite wisdom to veto them. I know that I have said this before, but is this psychotic not sounding more and more like King George of the 1770s? I am surprised that this country tolerates such a narcissistical, egotistical, megalomanic, lying bastard. (And before someone gets their pantyhose in a twist because of the disrespect that might emenate from that last word, I am technically correct. Whether BHO Sr. was his biological father matters little since legally BHO Sr. was already married and so could not marry BHO Jr.'s guest womb. And there are many rumors of the possibility of a different biological father too.)
I know that the i-word is bandied about often and that many say it would be an impossible objective. But again, technically, the Constitution specifies high crimes and misdemeanors. Add far as I am concerned, as a simple student of our Constitution, constantly lying to the American people and treating us as ignorant subjects is close enough to the definition of high crimes as I need so that impeachment proceedings can be started. Or to make it even easier, maybe now enough people will lose their great fear (or awe) of Darth Vader and start real investigations into his background and nationality. I wish people would see that with all the lies perpetrated on America and Americans that we know about, there is a greater than 50% chance something is not kosher in his background either. And that might make things a lot easier because then we could automatically reverse every piece of paper he ever signed. It would be messy, I agree, but why are we afraid of cleaning up a mess when we would able to stop his America destroying tactics in their tracks. In fact, I would not protest a reasonable increase in taxes for a few years if that was a consequence of impeachment. After all, Dear Leader manages to find new ways to trick us into new tax increases anyway, so why not donate to a worthy charity, the removal of Barry Soetoro from office.
In days gone by, when we threw off the shackles of King George, even then the agitators were just a relatively small, vocal minority prepared to fight the good fight and do the right thing. In those days we had Tories and Patriots that discussed and fought each other; we had a media (only printed or word of mouth in those days) that itself was open to discussion, often vitriolic. But at least the truth came out, even if it was cloaked in all sorts of other misrepresentations. People could filter the media output and measure against other things being disseminated, then deciding for themselves what was and was not true. Today, most Americans are more interested in topics that have nothing to do with civics and politics but would not find them on their favorite channels anyway. Those that are interested are often derided by the Washington elitists.
BTW, for most LIV voters, questions about TMZ, VH1 or CMT related topics = 100% correct; questions about civics, politics or history = 10% correct.
As far as information sharing goes, the Regressive elites that control most of the media, especially those channels that the Low Information Voters tend to watch, have refused to carry anything about the mushrooming Jon Gruber scandal, even though the first videos surfaced two weeks ago. They have lost all journalistic integrity and slavishly regurgitate what is fed them by the imperialistic regime, conveniently omitting anything that might throw negative shadows on their carefully nurtured nestlings. It is despicable to see how quickly they parrot unfounded allegations around the Ferguson situation yet refuse to even mention proven and open lies about how the Unaffordable Care Act was assembled in a way full of deceit and misrepresentations. Worse still, when key figures from the regime try to distance themselves from Gruber, saying they knew nothing and he was a minor figure, videos immediately surface of them praising his participation on the process. And of course the media refuses to call anyone out on these blatant lies. Do they really think that 'We The People' are stupid and do not see through the buffalo excrement laden platitudes? In some ways, those lies are an even greater insult to all reasonable people (we can forget about the LIV TMZ, VH1 generation, perhaps even forgive them since the elitists are not feeding them the correct information).
So what can we do about this? As I said earlier, it would be awesome to think about impeachment or the overturning of King Barry's elections. But the Washington crowd is too interested in protecting their own jobs and lack the fortitude and honesty to take this issue as far as it needs to go. Maybe a few strong Republicans will take up the sword for us and the country; if we are lucky there might even be few brave DemocRATS who are prepared to join them. It would be a very courageous decision, because look at how the Washington establishment treats those who step off the reservation.(from either side) But I would happy to support such brave Democrat souls in the next election, even if their underlying political bent is not the same as mine. The event of my enemy is my friend, and I can respect any friend whose honesty I can trust.
Time to decide to stock up on water, water purification tablets, fuel ( but not to much) and non-perishable foods (better still, freeze dried meals)
According to the results of a recent poll, support for the terror group is likely on the rise throughout the Western world. The poll, conducted on behalf of the Russian news agency Rossiya Segodnya by ICM, found that among people in Great Britain, France and Germany 2 percent say they have a favorable view of Islamic State and 7 percent say they have a somewhat favorable view of the group. In France, which has a large Muslim population, 16 percent of those surveyed say they support ISIS; among people age 18-24 in the country the number jumps to 27 percent.
This is alarming, in part because a growing number of Europeans, often from predominantly Muslim immigrant communities, are not just expressing their support for ISIS in polls: they are traveling to Syria and Iraq to join up. The ISIS fighter who killed American journalist James Foley on video last week spoke with a strong London accent. European governments are rightly worried about the implications of this for their own national security.
The message in this article, especially at the end, applies to elections throughout the country, at local, state and federal levels. Unfortunately we seem to have forgotten how important honesty, integrity and trustworthiness are to the political process. Just let me remind you, it matters not whether the candidate's name is followed by a D, R, L or I, if they have proven lies, fraud or other shenanigans in their past, reject them, do not vote for them.
We have existed for hundreds of years without Jews complaining about bacon signs, so what makes Muslims special that they can interfere with our way of life. If you don't eat bacon, ignore the sign and get on with your life. If not, get the hell out of the USA, we are a country built on TOLERANCE, not the imposition of individual views on the masses.
Even though it is very obvious to all logically thinking people how evil and dangerous ISIS is, the Regressives have already started their campaign to hide the truth by twisting words, because they feel they must appease these monsters. Mark my words, this is just the start of the war of words to make ISIS look like a sorry, poor, oppressed people. The Regressives, supposedly the party of women's and gay rights, is too blind to see that those they support will turn on them if they let the Islamists take power. And political correctness will hasten that stealing of power.
I do like the quote at the end of the article which, paraphrased, says "in OUR country you will be free to practice your medieval, goat-herders so called religion but only those parts which do not conflict with our social norms of a civilized society. Anything that conflicts will not be accepted for exemption from legal protection based on religious grounds and will be prosecuted with the full force of the law."
But notice how no-one is calling for the removal of halal food over the ethnic cleansing of Yazidis and Christians by the ISIS thugs.
The Democratic Party of yore is no more. Instead it has been taken over by the rabid Regressives, including Socialists, Marxists, Islamists and atheists. Which is one of the reasons why this country is so divided. You could have a reasonable debate with an "old Democrat", and even if neither of you could convince the other with your arguments, to could part friends. Today, if you dare disagree with a Regressive, you will be called a racist, misogynist (hater of women for those of you Regressives that served time in a government school), homophobe or Islamophobe.
Oh, for the days when civil discourse was possible.
In addition to recent news that hundred of thousands of those who signed up for ObamaCurse have not paid, here is confirmation about another negative effect of the Unaffordable Care Act. So slowly the true cost of this monstrosity is becoming visible, disruption of our healthcare system, increase in premiums and costs, overbearing and intrusive record keeping and the loss of jobs and working hours for millions of people. All to provide healthcare to a group of people that gets smaller over day. Shame on you, DemocRATS, for unconstitutionally forcing this travesty on us.
Yet again we see a bill proposed in DC, which in of itself seems quite a logical bill to enact. After all, who is not against young girls on college campuses (campii?) being subjected to sexual assaults?
But if you look at it Constitutionally, this is not something that is the purview of the federal government. And if not a federal topic then it must be an issue that should be addressed by the states.
So before you lefties get your knickers in a twist and accuse me of supporting the thugs on campus who attack girls, read the above carefully and note that all I ask for is that the correct part of our government looks after these problems.
If we had more people in DC reviewing bills for their correct Constitutionality, instead of for their own aggrandizement, a lot of this federal overreach would never have occurred. And talking about aggrandizement, look at the legislators in this piece. Do you really think they are saying "look at this good legislation"? I think they are saying "look at what WE did to protect these poor young girls". An excellent showcase of why DC is such a mess.
So the wolf has thrown off its sheep's clothing and revealed its true nature. After masquerading as a small government conservative, we now see that at heart Paul Ryan is a big government right wing Regressive.
I have had enough of these big government elitists, whether GOP or DemocRATS, who think that they know everything better than us and want to use the barrel of a gun to ensure we listen. And while you might say that sounds a little harsh, in essence I am correct, since at the end of the line the power of government is backed up by guns. Which is why they are so intent on taking away our guns.
Anyway, I am glad that Rep. Ryan will not be running for VP or POTUS in 2016, because I cannot see myself voting for him if he does.
The government will decide who does and who does not get expensive drugs. How long before political leaning is part of the equation, like for the IRS, DOJ, EPA, etc.
Read here how half white man spoke with forked tongue when in the senate, and most certainly contributed significantly to the current ILLEGAL immigrant problem.
The city of New York seems to be doing something very wrong in their attempt to stamp out Uber and others running illegal cabs.
While elsewhere illegals are given a paper slip and told to appear in court later, which most of them do not do, these poor people are subject to serious inconvenience, just to satisfy petty bureaucrats' lust for power. While the NY law is stupid and even draconian, it is the law. But the immediate impounding, I suspect, is unconstitutional because the law says innocent until proven guilty. So prove that a person is breaking the law, then you have the right to impound their vehicle. Where is the warrant signed by a judge, as required by the 4th Amendment?
And if this was one or two a year, yes, even the inspectors are human. But hundreds shows a flagrant disregard for the law.
(Full disclosure, I used Uber for the first time yesterday - not in NY ;-) - and found it to be an excellent experience, far superior and cheaper to using a cab. Wake up New York, the free market works better than all those government regulations)
More government overreach envisaged by the faceless bureaucrats appointed by this Regressive regime. I am fed up with all these attempts to regulate our lives. It is time someone told these pompous asses that what they want to do is far beyond anything that the Constitution allows.
Reminding bodies funded by us poor taxpayers that they have to follow the law, although the Regime itself picks and chooses which laws it wants to follow.
Funny how the LSM talking heads project their opinions as facts all the time, yet this poor reporter is punished for doing the same. But of course, we all know why this happened, it is about reporters injecting their opinions, it is about injecting the right (or wrong) opinion. If he had said that the boy was angry at welfare cuts by Republicans, the reporter would have promoted.
Yet again we see that the duplicitous regime is lying to us. They are bringing in scum, using our taxpayer dollars to feed and clothe them, all the while telling us that this is a "humanitarian crisis". It is NOT, it is just another back door way to provide amnesty and force the issue on so called comprehensive immigration reform. I say we should put them all in camps until their deportation hearings and then take them straight to the border. Mexico is actually supporting their transit to the USA, so let our untrustworthy southern neighbor resolve their transportation back home too. I expect that will very quickly put the kibosh on Nieto's support for these vagrants traveling through his country in either direction.
