TALKING POINTS

November 21, 2014

One of the talking points for the president’s speech last night was to, “prioritize deporting felons not families”. Obama went on to say, “We need to focus on deporting felons, not families; criminals, not children”. There was no mention of keeping felons out of the country. There was no mention of turning potential criminals or anybody away at the border.

The Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) reported that last year Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) released from custody 36,007 illegal immigrants, convicted of crimes. The list includes 193 homicide convictions, 426 sexual assault convictions, 9,187 dangerous drug convictions, 16,070 drunk or drugged driving convictions and more. Just released! Poof! Gone from sight and blending in to Hillary’s village.

So now, does ICE now start looking for those they previously had in custody, or are they safe since Obama has declared party time for law breakers?  This isn’t reform, this is presidential absolution.

FINDING RACISM WHEN IT’S CONVENIENT

July 14, 2014

According to an article by Justin Sink at The Hill, Eric Holder is still trying to separate the country along racial lines.

Holder’s boss, President Obama, uses race, economic status, gender, age, intelligence and or any other means to divide the country. Thus far in his presidency, Obama has pitted young against old, reasoned thought against ideologues, secularists against the religious, poor against rich, care-for-naughts against the responsible, women against men, Democrats against Republicans, ill against the healthy. He has caused the American public to pay for things they neither want or need so that those who want for free may need not want.

I thought, in 1986, that Ronald Reagan’s signing of the Immigration Reform and Control Act was going to be a clarion call for more people to enter the country without proper papers. Was I racist then? When he said, “A nation with no borders is not a nation” I asked what good the borders were if we gave respect to those who did not respect them. Was I racist then? The swarm began immediately and as time passed it became easier and easier for those choosing to skirt the immigration laws. This time Holder and Obama are showing the world that they care little for our sovereignty and our laws are applied when and where it is most convenient for the two of them. This is tyranny! Am I racist, or do I simply disagree with our Attorney General’s policies?

Holder told ABC. “You know, people talking about taking their country back. … There’s a certain racial component to this for some people. I don’t think this is the thing that is a main driver, but for some there’s a racial animus.” Yes Eric, and both of those people have been duly admonished. The rest of us simply don’t agree with your insane desire to destroy the country we love.

Holder said. “I think we are still a nation that is too afraid to confront racial issues,” rarely engaging “one another across the color line [to] talk about racial issues.” Hmm, could that be due to the fact that when you’re not blaming Bush for your ineptness you claim the person with a different opinion is racist?

The attorney general also pointed to Republican efforts to enact stricter voter ID laws in southern States as evidence that more needed to be done to protect minority rights. Republicans have maintained the efforts are designed to prevent voter fraud, while Democrats say instances of fraud are exceedingly rare, and far outpaced by the minority population that does not have identification that would be unable to vote. Perhaps if they are asked to produce proof of identity they may not be able to partake of government giveaways and entitlement programs that make and keep them dependent on Big Brother?

Holder called the laws “political efforts” designed to make it “more difficult” for “groups that are not supportive of those in power” to “have access to the ballot.” And just what is the excuse for those who support the party in power but still want you to uphold the law?

Holder said, “this notion that there is widespread in-person voter fraud is simply belied by the facts.”

This, too, might be true if you disregard the reports of certain districts with as much as 116% of the registered voters showing up at the polls and not one vote other than Democratic. It also might be true if you discount districts where poll watchers were forcibly removed from the area by Democratic operatives. Yes, if you consider the facts as you selectively enforce the nation’s laws, I guess voter fraud is belied by the facts.

Yes, I guess racial animus does exist when you ascribe racism to every opposing opinion. Even Harry Reid agrees with you. Harry’s remark about five white men neglected to account for Clarence Thomas. That is, unless he became white before voting on the Hobby Lobby case. Yeah, racial animus can be part of any debate!

NEW ARRIVALS

January 27, 2011

Again, along a known drug and human smuggling path in Arizona, a Border Patrol agent found a book commemorating the exploits of suicide bombers.  “In Memory of Our Martyrs”, published in Iran, outlines the lives and deaths of those who have given their all to killing innocent infidels in the name of Islam.  This is most assuredly not the first time such material has been found along our Southern border.  In fact, it happens quite frequently.

This doesn’t sound like the type of reading material normally carried by someone who only wants to better their lives and those of their family by “doing the work Americans won’t do”.  Apparently, the Department of Homeland Security thinks differently and is unwilling to stop the flow of unauthorized entrants.  They have proven so by figuratively tying the hands of our men in green, the troops on the ground, by restricting their ability to detain and deport known illegals.

The child or children of new arrivals, or undocumented workers, or if you must, illegal immigrants, are also entitled to an education so they will remain here and share their productivity with America.  This is apparently the immigration reform we’ve been hearing so much about.
