What to do when things no longer make sense?
By Elizabeth November 28th, 2014
Lately I get this feeling that I am living in some alternate reality where nothing makes any sense. Representatives of the people no longer represent their wishes or values…the executive has put the best interests of the people he serves behind the party he belongs too and tens of millions of foreigners and grifters who have come to take down this once great country. Of course I am talking about Obama’s latest royal edict opening our borders to a flood of illegal aliens all looking for that free chicken in every pot…the free health care…the free section 8 housing…the free money from TANF…free child and day care… free food… free education…free tutors for their children …free band instruments …free everything! What’s happened to this country?
“But Elizabeth, Reagan and Bush did the same exact things where was your outrage then?”
Well for starters had I been alive …even just a toddler I would have been outraged. Secondly, there is no comparison between the two because Reagan and Bush were interpreting a law that congress had passed and Obama is acting alone because congress didn’t do what he wanted them to do … sorry, that’s not how it works in this country. BUT, while Reagan and Bush 41 provide no precedent for Obama’s illegal amnesty (by executive order), Hoover, Truman, and Eisenhower do.
During The Great Depression, Hoover ordered the deportation of ALL illegal aliens in order to make jobs available to American citizens that desperately needed work. Then, at the end of World War II, Truman deported over two million illegal aliens to ensure that returning veterans would find work. And again in 1954, Eisenhower deported 13 million Mexican Nationals! The program was called “Operation Wetback”. He did it so WWII and Korean Veterans would have a better chance to get a job and return to their former lives. Wait a minute… you mean that we deported Mexicans because they were taking jobs away from US Citizens who had been overseas at war and then when they started to return we sent them home so our legal citizens would have jobs? You mean we protected our own legal citizens first? What’s changed? It hasn’t been the values of a majority of Americans…what has changed are the values of the people running our government. If they could deport the illegal aliens to protect American jobs for American’s back then – they have 30-40 million good reasons to do it again now, along with the millions and millions of unemployed who would benefit. Sheeple, illegal aliens should be deported, not supported. We are a country of laws, that’s what makes us unique. What’s happened to this country? When things start to happen like this that don’t make sense and aren’t consistent with our values then the people have an obligation to speak up
This should not be a Republican vs Democrat thing at all, and trust me when I tell you that the Republicans we just sent back to the majority in both houses will NOT do a thing to stop this other than give it lip service and pretend to be outraged. Republicans, like their Democrat friends “across the aisle” are hypocrites, and political whores. They want cheap labor and to drive down wages for financially crushed American families. They rubber stamp H1B Visas to make our college degrees worthless, they complain about Obama’s unconstitutional actions but secretly want this slave caste of illiterate workers who are used to abusive conditions with unfair pay. The Democrats also see this next wave of illegal aliens as the next voting block who’s votes they can buy with our tax dollars in order to keep themselves in power for the next 50 years until they figure out …like the blacks are figuring out now, that Democrats require a victim class to sell their class envy and bad policy ideas too and in the final analysis they will do nothing to improve their station in life.
Let’s face the facts here guys, If the GOP cared that much about the US Constitution they would immediately vote to defund the NSA, and immediately overturn the Patriot Act. They would put an immediate halt to all domestic spying …toss Eric Holder in jail (versus not having a serious conversation for him to join the Supremes…I could not make this up).
If allowed to go through …Obama’s executive amnesty will provide an estimated 5 million illegal aliens (his number not mine …the real number is likely to be just south of 10 million) with the exact benefits Congress rejected, in violation of federal law. His order will grant them social security numbers, government-issued ID’s, legal status and work permits and cost the US taxpayers an estimated 2 trillion dollars over the next 10 years. Illegal aliens will now be able to take jobs and benefits directly from struggling Americans in a time of high unemployment and low wages. They will be able to take jobs from Americans in all occupations, ranging from truck drivers to power company workers to jobs with city government. Many illegal aliens will also be able to obtain green cards and become permanent residents, allowing them access to almost all federal programs, to receive citizenship and sponsor foreign relatives to join them in the U.S.
Senator Jeff Sessions said it most succinctly when he wrote:
“In addition to providing formal amnesty benefits for 5 million illegal immigrants, President Obama has also eliminated virtually all enforcement with respect to the other nearly 7 million illegal immigrantsin the United States. As the president’s own former ICE Director, John Sandweg said: “if you are a run-of-the-mill immigrant here illegally, your odds of getting deported are close to zero.”
All you have to do is get into the country from anywhere on globe — whether through the border or by overstaying a visa — and you are free to remain, take jobs and receive benefits. This year alone, the White House has released into the United States more than 100,000 illegal immigrants who simply showed up at the border and demanded entry.
And now, with a single pen stroke, President Obama is obliterating what little remains of Americans’ immigration protections. Not only will millions of low-wage illegal immigrants rush into the labor market, but they will collect billions in taxpayer dollars as well. These costly government benefits range from child tax credits, to public housing to the likelihood that amnestied immigrants will rely on taxpayers for medical and retirement benefits.
Only a short time ago, President Obama himself admitted this action would be illegal and unconstitutional: “I know some people want me to bypass Congress and change the laws on my own” he explained, adding “that’s not how our democracy functions. That’s not how our Constitution is written.” President Obama also said that: “The problem is that I’m the president of the United States, I’m not the emperor of the United States. My job is to execute laws that are passed.”
Apparently, America now has its first emperor.
And he has issued an imperial order to dissolve America’s borders. Millions more will enter and demand the same amnesty benefits as those who came before. The entire moral foundation and consistency of our laws will have been eviscerated. Law enforcement officials have repeatedly warned that the president’s new amnesty will unleash a “tidal wave” of illegal immigration. The impact on our jobs, wages, hospitals, schools, police departments and neighborhoods will be crushing.
A second hammer blow will be dealt by the president’s unilateral increase in foreign worker programs for large corporations, including technology corporations. Currently, two-thirds of all new jobs in the IT industry are being filled by foreign workers — and yet the president wants to dramatically surge foreign worker admissions even further. This at a time when the Census Bureau tells us more than 11 million Americanswith science, technology, engineering and math degrees don’t have jobs in those fields.
President Obama is auctioning off America’s middle class to the highest bidders.
Immigration already stands at record levels and is rising quickly. Between 2000 and 2014 — a period during which the government issued nearly 30 million lawful visas to foreign workers and permanent immigrants — all net employment gains among the working-age went to imported labor. Now the president is planning to unilaterally increase immigration even further — all to placate a few billionaire lobbyists and open border extremists.
The great task before the nation now is to resist this imperial decree and return control of this nation to its own citizens — as our Constitution established.
That task begins with Congress refusing to allow a dime of money to be spent executing this unlawful amnesty. This is a routine, constitutional and crucial application of congressional power.
If Democrat lawmakers join Republicans in blocking funds for his unlawful plan, the president will be stopped. Americans must ask their representatives this one question: do you serve the citizens of this country and their Constitution — or not??”
