Napolitano – The Doorman for Illegal Invasion

 

Another 1200 page Senate bill is coming up for a vote. This time it is the Gang of Eight “Immigration Reform” bill. And, once again, none of the Senators has read the bill in its entirety. The bill has morphed through so many crony-capitalist additions and changes that it would make the frequency of Nancy Pelosi’s face lifts look minimal. Key among the recent changes was that the requirement for border security first, was demoted to second place in importance and, finally, jettisoned altogether. Border security is, in fact, being actively been campaigned against.

The latest amendment originates from Republican Senators Bob Corker (TN) and John Hoeven (ND). In a despicable stab at marking their territory Republicans made a flagrant push to outdo Democrats, despite their constituency’s majority wishes. The Corker-Hoeven amendment opens the floodgates of America’s borders and ushers invaders in. Worse, it forever buries security considerations. A fence building plan is required but Big Sis can nix building the fence at will.

According to Breitbart, the Corker-Hoeven bill introduced a “border surge amendment.” On page 35, line 24 of the new bill “… a provision was inserted that says Napolitano–who already believes the border is secure–can decide against building a fence if she chooses not to erect one…” Big Sis and those that follow her would now have the authority to deny a border security fence…she gets to decide whether or not it is a good use of resources.

Just Make Them all Citizens

by: the Common Constitutionalist

 

Will problems with immigration ever be solved? Frankly, do those who appear to fight for “reform” really want the issue to go away? After all, immigration advocacy has become quite the cottage industry.

And for dishonest politicians, as practically all of them are turning out to be; they are always looking for a good PC cause to latch on to.

I will give at least a few of them credit for the courage to appear on conservative talk radio to plead their cases.

A few weeks ago Marco Rubio was on Rush Limbaugh’s show. Rush tried his best to be civil, but as a veteran listener, I and I’m sure many others, knew Rush wasn’t buying what Marco was dishing out.

Jeff Flake, just last week or so, spoke on the Glenn Beck radio program. Man, did they NOT agree with Flake’s positions! Did these politicians really think they would convince anyone in these audiences?

We often wonder just what happens to these guys when they go to Washington. Is the capital building like some Death Star? During freshman orientation they are brought before the Emperor Darth Sidious and shown the power of the dark side. I just don’t get it?

Off topic: new rule for Congress and the Senate. 75% of your time must be spent in your home district. With today’s technology – votes and committee meetings will be conducted by secure link video conferencing. Could you imagine the wails of dissent if someone were to propose that?

Anyway, Ali Baba Schumer and his seven other thieves have picked up two more for their merry band, progressive Republicans John Cornyn (R- Texas) and Orrin Hatch (R – Utah). Sorry Mark Levin, but Orrin is a big government progressive.

With their help many amendments to at least slow this train have gone down to overwhelming defeat. Amendments such as requiring full operational border security before granting illegals, legal status. Wow! What a radical proposal. Sure am glad it was defeated.

What was passed was a Patrick (Leaky) Leahy (C – Vermont) (C for communist) amendment to give Big Sis Napolitano and DHS the leeway to secure the border… or not. I’m going to guess not. How about you?

Another proposal was to require just six months of border control before legal status was granted to criminal aliens. That too was soundly defeated. To it, Diane Feinstein said: “I have no doubt to this nation’s commitment to enforce the border.” Jeff Flake added that they shouldn’t delay amnesty for security. Fear not Jeff; they won’t. There will be full amnesty and no security. Heck, even if they vote for security, it won’t get done.

Remember the 2006 border fence agreement? I believe it was to construct 750 miles of double-layered fence. And remember Duncan Hunter at the time insisted it would be built due to the language in the bill? Not that the fence should be built, but he exclaimed, the fence “Shall be Built.”

Nearly everyone, Republican and Democrat alike voted for it at the time. That was seven years ago. We now have 35 miles built and no plans to complete it. Liars!

Another amendment that was passed is to allow Big Sis to cut back or stop altogether the reimbursements to states that imprison illegals.

By law, the feds must reimburse at least some of the cost of housing the criminal aliens.

But really, how much could that be? Don’t illegals wish to come to America for a better life? Yeah, some for a better life of crime.

In 2005 the GAO (Government accounting office) issued a report on just this. Keep in mind this was eight years ago.

The report discovered in just the federal prisons, 27% of prisoners are illegals and the majority of that percentage was Mexican. Between 2001 and 2004 reimbursements to state and local prisoners was $5.8 billion. It was estimated that reimbursements from the feds was no more than 25% of the cost the states had incurred.

So the feds refuse to do what they are charged to do, secure the border and deal with illegals and the states are left holding most of the bag. And now thanks to this bill and the DHS, probably the whole bag.

Bear in mind that states have no deportation authority, so they are truly stuck.

This 867 page and growing debacle will pass. We will have mass amnesty. There is already an ever-increasing influx of illegals coming over in anticipation. The border will not be secured and the country’s demise will be hastened because of it.

This is textbook Cloward and Piven – overwhelm the system, not to mention one party rule for a long long time.

It’s a win-win!

Marco Rubio Called Out For “Lying Like Democrats” About Immigration

I told you all this a while ago. Rubio has become a RINO on immigration. However I feel about him regarding any other issue, I can never support him for a higher office, if you know what I mean. Anyone who thinks he can work with the likes of McCain, Graham, Schumer, etc. has lost my respect.

 

On Wednesday, author Ann Coulter blasted Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) for his  support of the immigration reform bill which is being put forth by the “Gang of  Eight” that he is a part of.  Her headline was classic Coulter, IF  RUBIO’S AMNESTY IS SO GREAT, WHY IS HE LYING?”.  In it, she proceeds to  expose the obvious problems with the Florida Senator’s proposed immigration  legislation.

“When Republicans start lying like Democrats, you can guess they are pushing an  idea that’s bad for America,” the conservative author wrote.  “During his  William Ginsburg-like tour of the Sunday talk shows last weekend, Sen. Marco  Rubio was the Mount Vesuvius of lies about his immigration bill.”

Coulter pointed to Rubio’s appearance on Fox News Sunday, in which he explained  the powerful border-enforcing mechanism, which he denied was merely a  meaningless goal.  He said, “Basically, Homeland Security will have five years  to meet that goal. If after five years, Homeland Security has not met that  number, it will trigger the Border Commission, who will then take over this issue for them.”

Coulter then sarcastically commented, “So the water torture awaiting the  Department of Homeland Security if it fails to secure the border is … ANOTHER  GOVERNMENT COMMISSION WILL BE CREATED! Take that, Homeland Security! Ha — we  have you now! The only thing more frightening than ‘another  government commission’ is a ‘strongly worded letter.’

Coulter is correct.  I’m sure DHS is quaking in their collective jackboots  over the threat that if they don’t meet a demand in five years they will be  threatened with another commission that will simply offer rhetoric.

Harry Reid’s Omnibus Background Check Bill

by: the Common Constitutionalist

 

After reading about the gang of 16 turncoat Republicans that voted with the dems to allow Harry Reid’s gun bill to move forward, I made a call.

I telephoned my Senator, Kelly Ayotte’s office in Washington to vent my spleen. I spoke with one of her lackeys, and she explained that the senator has always been pro-second amendment. I asked the lackey if the pro-gun Sen. actually read the very lengthy bill she voted to allow to proceed? The lackey had no answer. She just kept repeating how Sen. Ayotte was pro-second amendment. I told her that her answer, to me, assumed the senator had not and that I will report it that way. The lackey was none too happy with me. Frankly, at this point, I don’t really care.

At this very moment (writing this article), I am staring at page after page after excruciating page of Senate bill S – 649.

The name of the bill is: S – 649: Safe Communities, Safe Schools Act of 2013.

How could anyone be against safe communities and schools? They might as well call it the “Don’t Shoot Grandma Act.” After all, who would vote to shoot grandma?

It doesn’t take long to question the sincerity of the bill. It starts in the very first sentence: “To ensure that all individuals who should be prohibited from buying a firearm are listed in the national instant criminal background check system and require a background check for every firearm sale, and for other purposes.”

See anything a little creepy about the preamble? You too, eh? I see two problems. The first is relatively minor, the second, seriously major.

First: there is no way to ensure full registration. It’s a crock, but it sounds great and isn’t that really the most important thing? It doesn’t matter whether it actually happens as long as they care enough to wish it to be so. It is tailored directly to the low information citizen.

Second: this is the scary part: “… And for other purposes”. Yikes! What does that mean? Answer: anything they want it to – after it is signed into law.

This bill, like so many others, is purposely written to go on forever. Here is the link to read it for yourself, assuming you are as masochistic as I: http://www.govtrack.us/congress/bills/113/s649/text.

Here’s a little interesting factoid to ponder that directly relates to this bill.

In 2007 Delaware passed a law making it a minimum class A misdemeanor to spank a child under the age of 18. Coincidentally, uncle Joe Biden’s son Beau was one of the people who pushed the law. Small world, isn’t it?

So Delaware passed a law. So what? Well, here is so what.

Bill S – 649, Section 111: … Proposed Grants, b) Use of Grants, (1) In General, (E) “supply accurate and timely court orders and records of misdemeanor crimes…”

Putting it together? Any parent in Delaware convicted of spanking their child (don’t laugh, it’s the law) will not be able to legally own a firearm and I’m sure that’s not the only example.

Not only is the bill written, at times in the vaguest terms possible, but also it continually cites other laws  – causing one to either research every cited law or throw their hands up in frustration.

This is where we are headed folks. I have now finished reading the entire bill and I’ll tell you, it would take Justice Scalia and 20 researchers several weeks to interpret. No lie! That means there is no Senator that will fully understand what they are voting for. Just like Obamacare.

Oh, and by the way, it never did reveal what the “other purposes” were.
