It’s Time to Permanently Limit Immigration…Again

The left, moderate republicans, and most everyone else are freaking out over President Donald Trump’s Muslim ban, which is anything but a Muslim ban.

Yesterday, Glenn Beck, on his morning radio program, ran through the facts of what Trump actually signed as an Executive order. Beck added that he (like me) is not a fan of Executive Orders. Executive Orders have the air of a monarchy or autocracy and, in my opinion, upsets the balance of power and undercuts republicanism – our system of government – not the Party.

Beck and his on-air colleague Stu did lament that the speed in which the order went into effect took authorities like the TSA almost by surprise, as these agencies were being informed of the order as Trump was signing it.

However it appears that these agencies did a remarkable job of following the order with little warning – so hats off to them. Never thought I’d say that about the TSA, Customs or any other government department.

Outside JFK, thousands gathered to protest. In the midst of the crowd were several individuals from a group called “UNITE 4 PEOPLE” holding up placards, each with an illuminated letter spelling out “NO BAN.” read more

Obamacare was to be Like a Shiny New Car

by: the Common Constitutionalist

For quite a while president Obama and the democrats have lamented over the haves vs. the have-nots in America. It’s not fair that so few should have so much, while working families and the poor go without.

It’s not right that 1% can afford to purchase a new Bentley every year, while most must suffer driving an old clunker which spews out CO2 and is in constant need of repair.

Because of this disparity, the Obama administration has unveiled a new mandated government program. It is a brand new prototype automobile originally developed at Area 51. It is equipped with every known feature currently available in any and all cars and trucks today and it has absolutely zero emissions.

The administration is so exited by the development, the president signed an Executive order requiring everyone to purchase one by the year 2020. read more

Standards Must Be Maintained – Especially in the Military

by: the Common Constitutionalist

A couple of days ago an article was posted by Aaron MacLean entitled “Pressure Grows for Marines to Lower Standards for Women“.

Naturally I was intrigued and concerned. Heck, anyone who understands the job of our military should be concerned by that headline. One doesn’t have to have served to get that the military has high standards for a reason.

The article has to do with the Marine IOC (Infantry Officer Course) and its initial CET (Combat Endurance Test). Actually the article has more to do with military being increasingly run as a social experiment rather than a fighting force.

MacLean reports the 24 women had attempted the CET and none made it all the way through.

The Marines, as are the other branches, are being pushed to introduce women into combat roles, so when three women (not part of the original 24) made it through the initial stage, the news was widely reported and heralded. Yet when all three of the women were dropped for not meeting later physical requirements, MacLean found but one report – the Christian Science Monitor.

The three women, as well as three men, failed on a 9 mile hike. They had, according to the Monitor report, three hours to move 9 miles caring 124 pound packs. After falling behind for a second time, they were out. read more

Obama/Boehner Collude on Immigration?

This is disgusting and demonstrates everything that is wrong with Washington:

from HotAir:

Skip to 24:30 for the key bit. Admittedly, admittedly, this is as rote and innocuous a statement of support for amnesty as you’ll ever hear from a GOP leader — he even stresses that we need to secure the border first — but the closer we get to the lame-duck session, the more righties are going to parse his every belch for signs of a deal on immigration. And not just righties: The LA Times perked up upon hearing this today too. As the man himself says, the sooner we get this done, the better it’ll be for the GOP donor class America. Why not November? read more

La Raza Makes Demand of Obama

from Breitbart:

On Friday, La Raza President and CEO Janet Murguia demanded that President Barack Obama give executive amnesty and work permits to as many as eight million illegal immigrants afterreports surfaced that Senate Democrats are urging Obama not to unilaterally change the country’s immigration laws before the midterm elections.

Appearing on MSNBC’s Jose Diaz-Balart, Murguia said Obama and Republicans have told illegal immigrants in the past to wait for Congress to act on legislation before complaining that, “and now, there’s some Senate Democrats who are asking us to wait again.”  read more
