Illegals Can Carry Guns and Collect Unemployment

by: the Common Constitutionalist

The new United States Congress is actually going to attempt to de-fund at least some of the Homeland Security budget that pertains to president Obama’s illegal executive action on immigration.

I’d like to quickly go off topic for just a moment and ask a question. Is there another name for these “immigrants”? Can someone come up with a more appropriate name for these illegals Obama is legalizing please? Criminal trespassers maybe, or worse, when I report what I’m about to report.

Well, it seems the Congress isn’t the only one trying to stop Obama. There are 24 states also trying to block the president’s illegal immigration decree.amnesty

And why are the States getting involved? Obviously they understand that just like every other mandate imposed on them by the feds, the States will be left holding the financial bag.

And they also, most likely, realize that when the feds announced a target number, as in 4 million illegals in this case, the number is guaranteed to be much greater. The States will be on the hook for their education, healthcare, etc., none of which they can afford.

MailOnline reports that a brief released by Wisconsin says “States will have to pay millions of dollars to remediate the problems created by the directive. It will be difficult or impossible to recover those costs from the federal government.” read more

Advocating for Illegal Driver’s Licenses

by: the Common Constitutionalist

A few days ago Amy Taxin at AP Los Angeles wrote an article about illegal immigrants obtaining driver’s licenses, and the troubles they may encounter. The article was entitled “Immigrants get Warning on Drivers Licenses.”

She begins by writing “While tens of thousands of immigrants living in the United States illegally are preparing to apply for long-sought driver’s license in California starting January 2, others are being urged to think twice.”

Maybe it’s just me, but shouldn’t everyone have a problem with that sentence? I know we’ve heard over and over, but I just can’t get over the fact that we’re going to reward criminals with driver’s licenses.

She continues: “Immigrant advocates say the vast majority should be able to get licenses without trouble, but they want anyone who previously obtained a driver’s license under a false name or someone else’s Social Security number to speak first with a lawyer, fearing a new application could trigger a fraud investigation.”

Now who exactly are these immigrant advocates? To what end are they advising these criminals and more importantly, who the heck is paying for the services? Are they volunteers, working for the good of mankind, or are they hacks being paid by some nonprofit organization that ultimately skims money from the government by means of a bogus federal grant or porkulus type spending provided by one of the leftist California Senators or Congressmen? read more

Sir Mitt – The Bold

by: the Common Constitutionalist

I have a friend in Texas who owns a business. He tells me that every night illegal aliens sneak into his offices to sleep. On cool nights, they turn up the heat and on warm nights they crank the air conditioner, which costs him a lot of additional money.

He said he went to the authorities and they said that not only would they not do anything to stop them or arrest them, but that he could not beef up the locks on his buildings. The authorities said he could hire security but that they could only observe and not intervene.

Okay – that didn’t happen, although I do have a friend in Texas who does own a business, but he would just shoot anyone trying to break in.

I am however demonstrating that anyone, conservative or liberal would never stand for people breaking into their businesses let alone accept it if authorities told them what they couldn’t do to keep the illegals out.

Yet somehow it’s just fine to allow the same thing happened to our country. It defies logic, yet Mitt Romney, who is rapidly reestablishing himself as the titular head of the establishment Republicans, is officially “on board” the Obama amnesty express – not that he was ever off. read more

The Left Rewrites History Again

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Obama and the left have a habit of distorting and rewriting history to bend to their warped views of how the world should look and how history should have been recorded.

I’m starting to wonder if maybe they are that deluded, that like Dorothy, clicking her ruby slippers together, if you wish hard enough for something to be so – if you want badly enough for it to be – you may then record that fantasy as factual history.

“Auntie Em, Auntie Em.” “Oh little Barack – it’s okay now – we’re all here.” “But Auntie Em – I had the most horrible nightmare. Reverend Wright – you were there, and you Mr. Ayers. Frank Marshall Davis was there.” “Here I am son. No need to fret.” “And Mr. Alinsky…” “Don’t worry son. You’re awake now. The Constitution was just a bad dream.”

Yeah, it’s like that. Or maybe it’s like the wife of a deceased union leader and activist completely turning history on its head to fit the current narrative. read more

Is It Fight or Flight for Obama?

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Late last week Karen Tumulty and Juliet Eilperin at the Washington Post wrote a column entitled “Will Obama fade or fight as Republicans gain control of Congress?”

They wrote that when his [Obama’s] “party got walloped last week in the midterm election an unbowed president Obama declared that he would ‘squeeze every last bit of opportunity’ to push his agenda in the waning years of his presidency. In the past few days, he has shown that he meant it.” Yes, the only ones he bows to our sheikhs and dictators.

My first question to the ladies is to name one time when he hasn’t squeezed “every last bit of opportunity” out of his mostly unlawful and unconstitutional agenda?

An aside: I don’t know where my head is at. I apologize for my “ladies” reference, them writing for the WaPo. That was insensitive and assumptive. It’s quite possible one or the other, or both, are transgendered, transsexual, gender bending or questioning.

Anyway, they go on to list, in no particular order, all the “opportunities” Obama must still squeeze out. Sorry for the sphincter reference, but if the shoe fits, so to speak. read more

California’s Illegal Drivers

from FOX 40 California:

California Division of Motor Vehicles is preparing for roughly 1.4 million new driver’s license applicants after Jan. 1.

That’s when Assembly Bill 60, or the Safe and Responsible Drivers Act, goes into effect.

FOX40 spoke with a Maria Rodriguez, an undocumented immigrant living in West Sacramento who plans to apply for a license under the new law.

“It’s the best thing that could have happened to us in California.  We’ve been waiting for it for many, many years,” Rodriguez said. read more

Latino Ingrate or Shrewd El Politico

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Perusing the inter-web, I found an article that intrigued me. The man who wrote it, or the editor, or someone entitled it properly, causing me to click on it and read.

The article is, “Latinos Should Withhold Support From Democrats“, posted by Arturo Carmona at Real Clear Politics. Mr. Carmona is executive director of Presidente Action.

Well, it turns out, this post wasn’t “Real Clear” at all. I was going in expecting to read about “Latinos” seeing the light and voting conservative, or at least Republican, and although it kind of reads that way, I’ll guarantee that’s not his motivation.

Mr. Carmona is angry because Obama and the Democrats haven’t done enough for them, and by them, of course I mean the millions of criminal aliens.

Yes, Mr. Carmona claims that Obama has betrayed him and his lawbreaking “people”. He writes: “For months, president Obama promised that he – and the rest of the nation – were done with Republican obstructionism on immigration reform. On March 14, he indicated he would instruct Homeland Security secretary Jeh Johnson to produce recommendations for executive actions to bring relief to millions of immigrant families suffering in the shadows.”

Republican obstructionism? Really? So now, in 2014, current immigration law is considered obstructionism. And there are no recommendations to make. What Johnson suggests or suggested and whatever Obama does will be both illegal and anticonstitutional. But to Obama, it’s only illegal if you can stop them. read more

Maybe Now You Will Close the Border Mr. President

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Who’d have figured that the modern day plague (potentially) may be the cure for illegal immigration?

For years conservatives have struggled against the left and the Chamber of Commerce prostitutes, the establishment Republicans, to stop or at least stem the tide of illegals – to close the border.

No matter what the argument for closing the border, there were always politicians and interest groups standing in the way, trying to tell us what a great deal it will be – what a boon to our economy.

Pleas of stopping drug cartels, gangs and terrorists fall on deaf ears. Nothing can stop the flood.

But now we’re faced with an enemy we can’t see – an enemy we can’t arrest, detain or deport.

Despite the government and their dimwitted accomplices in the media, Ebola is for real and it’s already here. It may be isolated – it may not. 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
