Citizenship in the Age of Obama

The Obama administration has directed that undocumented immigrants be allowed to apply for deferred action and advanced parole simultaneously, opening up the possibility for hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens to be handed U.S. citizenship.

Obama’s executive actions regarding illegals also include the IRS making it possible for illegal aliens who have paid no taxes to receive cash tax credits.

They can also receive driver’s licenses in ten states, making it easier for those who are here illegally to vote along side law-abiding, tax-paying citizens.

Obama believes illegal aliens have a “right” to a job in the American work place.

The Border Patrol was recently instructed to not interfere with illegals driving drunk.

Other nations still cherish, protect and defend citizenship.

Not here. Not with Obama at the helm.

2014_11 15 Allen West on Obama's immigration ploy

As the Chairman of the Subcommittee on Immigration and the National Interest, Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL), said Friday, “Our laws have been dismantled, stripped bare”, not by our lawmakers, but by a president who fancies himself king.

Americans are NOT HAPPY about this.

A January 2015 poll shows 58% of registered voters oppose Obama’s executive actions, compared to 36% in support. 53% said they support “Republicans in Congress taking away federal funding for this executive order” with just 36% opposed.

A majority of Americans support strengthening rules against hiring illegals.

  • 90% = Republicans, Romney voters
  • 78% = Protestants
  • 76% = Evangelicals
  • 75% = Catholics
  • 73% = Rural
  • 72% = Suburban
  • 66% = Urban
  • 63% = Non-Christians
  • 58% = Democrats, Obama voters
  • 56% = Hispanics
  • 55% = African-Americans

THE SATURDAY GRUDGE

Posted by Pistol Pete

Just a short post today,since nobody’s around on the weekend anyway.

Just a few words about Obama’s naked power grab yesterday.I truly believe that almost unlimited power is driving him mad.He has a big,empty hole where his soul should be that all the lies,theft and pain he can inflict won’t fill.When you listen to his speech listing all the conditions for amnesty,no criminal record,must live here five years,blah,blah,blah,remember it all means NOTHING!No one cares if they meet the criteria or not,he desperately needs all the illegal votes he can get.Never mind the increased competition for jobs,the added pressure on social services or the increase in crime.As long as it helps him win,that’s all he cares about.I am thoroughly convinced there is no depth he won’t sink to,no law he won’t break in an effort to hang on to his power.We  must all pray and work to rid ourselves of this virus before the damage he does becomes irreparable.

If this doesn’t scare you, something is very, very wrong.

Caveat: I have seen no evidence whatsoever that Barack Obama is “brilliant” and I highly doubt he’s “devised” much of anything, never mind the entire scheme to bring this great nation to its knees. Is he helping to implement the plans that others have devised? Absolutely.

An Obama classmate speaks out by Wayne Allyn Root – June 6, 2010

Rahm Emanuel cynically said, “You never want a crisis to go to waste.” It is now becoming clear that the crisis he was referring to is Barack Obama’s presidency.

Obama is no fool. He is not incompetent. To the contrary, he is brilliant. He knows exactly what he’s doing. He is purposely overwhelming the U.S. economy to create systemic failure, economic crisis and social chaos — thereby destroying capitalism and our country from within.

Barack Obama is my college classmate (Columbia University, class of ’83). As Glenn Beck correctly predicted from day one, Obama is following the plan of Cloward & Piven, two professors at Columbia University. They outlined a plan to socialize America by overwhelming the system with government spending and entitlement demands. Add up the clues below. Taken individually they’re alarming. Taken as a whole, it is a brilliant, Machiavellian game plan to turn the United States into a socialist/Marxist state with a permanent majority that desperately needs government for survival … and can be counted on to always vote for bigger government. Why not? They have no responsibility to pay for it.

— Universal health care. The health care bill had very little to do with health care. It had everything to do with unionizing millions of hospital and health care workers, as well as adding 15,000 to 20,000 new IRS agents (who will join government employee unions). Obama doesn’t care that giving free health care to 30 million Americans will add trillions to the national debt. What he does care about is that it cements the dependence of those 30 million voters to Democrats and big government. Who but a socialist revolutionary would pass this reckless spending bill in the middle of a depression?

— Cap and trade. Like health care legislation having nothing to do with health care, cap and trade has nothing to do with global warming. It has everything to do with redistribution of income, government control of the economy and a criminal payoff to Obama’s biggest contributors. Those powerful and wealthy unions and contributors (like GE, which owns NBC, MSNBC and CNBC) can then be counted on to support everything Obama wants. They will kick-back hundreds of millions of dollars in contributions to Obama and the Democratic Party to keep them in power. The bonus is that all the new taxes on Americans with bigger cars, bigger homes and businesses helps Obama “spread the wealth around.”

— Make Puerto Rico a state. Why? Who’s asking for a 51st state? Who’s asking for millions of new welfare recipients and government entitlement addicts in the middle of a depression? Certainly not American taxpayers. But this has been Obama’s plan all along. His goal is to add two new Democrat senators, five Democrat congressman and a million loyal Democratic voters who are dependent on big government.

— Legalize 12 million illegal immigrants. Just giving these 12 million potential new citizens free health care alone could overwhelm the system and bankrupt America. But it adds 12 million reliable new Democrat voters who can be counted on to support big government. Add another few trillion dollars in welfare, aid to dependent children, food stamps, free medical, education, tax credits for the poor, and eventually Social Security.

— Stimulus and bailouts. Where did all that money go? It went to Democrat contributors, organizations (ACORN), and unions — including billions of dollars to save or create jobs of government employees across the country. It went to save GM and Chrysler so that their employees could keep paying union dues. It went to AIG so that Goldman Sachs could be bailed out (after giving Obama almost $1 million in contributions). A staggering $125 billion went to teachers (thereby protecting their union dues). All those public employees will vote loyally Democrat to protect their bloated salaries and pensions that are bankrupting America. The country goes broke, future generations face a bleak future, but Obama, the Democrat Party, government, and the unions grow more powerful. The ends justify the means.

— Raise taxes on small business owners, high-income earners, and job creators. Put the entire burden on only the top 20 percent of taxpayers, redistribute the income, punish success, and reward those who did nothing to deserve it (except vote for Obama). Reagan wanted to dramatically cut taxes in order to starve the government. Obama wants to dramatically raise taxes to starve his political opposition.

With the acts outlined above, Obama and his regime have created a vast and rapidly expanding constituency of voters dependent on big government; a vast privileged class of public employees who work for big government; and a government dedicated to destroying capitalism and installing themselves as socialist rulers by overwhelming the system.

Add it up and you’ve got the perfect Marxist scheme — all devised by my Columbia University college classmate Barack Obama.

Left v Right – Civility, truth and other good stuff

Kinda Sorta By Chrissy the Hyphenated

Tuesday, May 10, 2011

Standing within a cartel shot of the Mexican border, Obama called for comprehensive immigration reform to show impatient Hispanic supporters that he’s trying to deliver on all those past promises of a path to citizenship.

Never mind that he has no intention of introducing such legislation and knows full well that if he did, it would never pass this Congress.

He also mocked Republicans for never being satisfied and always changing the conditions about what’s needed to secure the border, saying:

“Maybe they’ll say we need a moat. Or alligators in the moat.”

Classy. Just what we all thought he meant by that “new kind of politics”, right?

H/t Legal Insurrection

A few hours later, Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer responded, saying she hoped the Democrat’s trip to El Paso, Texas was not just “about locking down votes in 2012.”

Of course, she and everyone else knows that is EXACTLY what the trip and the speechifying were about.

Brewer also said,

“First, the President should have come to the Arizona border, where I have invited him repeatedly. He should have spoken to our ranchers, who live with drug-runners and human-smugglers crossing their lands. He should have met with our law enforcement officers, who are frequently outgunned by the heavily-armed cartels.

“Nearly half of our nation’s border apprehensions occur in Arizona. Our state remains America’s gateway for illegal immigration, and we continue to bear the brunt of the federal government’s failure on this issue. If the President felt confident in declaring the border secure, he should have come to tell the people of Arizona face-to-face.

“Everyone can agree our immigration system is broken. Any reasonable fix will require the good-faith efforts of state leaders, members of Congress, local officials, the business community and the White House. But the people of America won’t be fooled again. They know that any talk of a path to citizenship is simply amnesty by another name. And they’re smart enough to recognize a political ploy when they see it. I’m afraid today’s announcement is simply more of the ‘promise something, do nothing, blame someone’ political spin we’ve become accustomed to hearing from Washington. That would be a shame.”

As for Obama’s allegations that “stepped-up enforcement is getting results”, take that with a pound of salt (just as you must with anything that comes out of this liar’s mouth).

May 6, 2011: Newsmax reported that Arizona Sheriff Larry Dever told them:

  • The U.S. Border Patrol has told its agents to stop arresting illegal aliens crossing the border from Mexico to keep the illegal immigration numbers down.
  • Attorney General Eric Holder is “holding hands with the ACLU” to protect illegal aliens from prosecution.
  • There’s a bad element in the mix of the aliens that are crossing that border and they don’t stay there, they move into communities throughout the country. And every day there are travesties and heinous crimes being committed by those people.
  • In one district in Texas, illegals are allowed to be caught crossing the border 14 times before being charged with a felony, and federal smuggling charges are not considered unless at least six illegal aliens are being smuggled into the country.

Dever is sheriff of Cochise County, which shares an 83-mile border with Mexico, and he says his Border Patrol sector is responsible for half of all illegal aliens caught trying to enter the country and halt the narcotics entering the United States.
