Posted on 04/09/2009 2:30:23 PM PDT by DrGop0821
President Obama is crazy. He is radical, arrogant, dangerous and dishonest. Amnesty for 12 Million people? That's his solution to immigration?
This a power grab; pure and simple. If Obama were truly concerned about immigration reform, why don't we start with securing our borders.
But he doesn't truly care about our national security, the economy or anything else that our President should be focused on. His lone motivation is for his radical Obumunist Agenda is to establish a Socialist State and make it next to impossible for Republicans to stop it.
Team "O" will do everything it can to buy votes. This "amnesty" crap is more of the same.
The Unconstitutional White House effort to create a permanent voting majority by allowing Rahm Emanuel to oversee the 2010 census is now irrelevant.
While you were sleeping, Team "O" took over America.
ACORN is the largest radical Leftist group in America today.
ACORN thinks Americans have a Constitutional right to own a home, supports illegally breaking into homes , pressures Blue-Dog Democrats to back radical legislation and generally acts like above-the-law criminals.
ACORN was officially tapped as a Census partner in February and the CRAPulus Spending "Stimulus" Bill contains over $4 Billion for "neighborhood stabilization", i.e. community organizations like ACORN.
Mercury News reports:
While acknowledging that the recession makes the political battle more difficult, President Barack Obama plans to begin addressing America's immigration system this year, including looking for a path for illegal immigrants to become legal, a senior administration official said Wednesday.
Obama will frame the new effort likely to rouse passions on all sides of the highly divisive issue as "policy reform that controls immigration and makes it an orderly system," said the official, Cecilia Munoz, deputy assistant to the president and director of intergovernmental affairs in the White House.
Obama plans to speak publicly about the issue in May, administration officials said, and over the summer he will convene working groups, including lawmakers from both parties and a range of immigration organizations, to begin discussing possible legislation for as early as this fall.
Some White House officials said immigration would not take precedence over the health care and energy proposals that Obama has identified as priorities. But the timetable is consistent with pledges that Obama made to Latino groups in last year's campaign.
He said then that comprehensive immigration legislation, including a plan to make legal status possible for an estimated 12 million illegal immigrants, would be a priority in his first year in office. Latino voters turned out strongly for Obama in the election.
"He intends to start the debate this year," Munoz said.
But with the economy seriously ailing, advocates on different sides of the debate said immigration could become a polarizing issue for Obama in a year when he has many other major battles to fight.
Opponents, mainly Republicans, say they will seek to mobilize popular outrage against any effort to legalize unauthorized immigrant workers while so many Americans are out of jobs.
Democratic legislative aides said opening a full-fledged debate this year on immigration, particularly with health care as a looming priority, could weigh down the president's domestic agenda.
The White House is calculating that public support for fixing the immigration system, which is widely acknowledged to be broken, will outweigh opposition from voters who argue that immigrants take jobs from Americans. A groundswell among voters opposed to legal status for illegal immigrants led to the defeat in 2007 of a bipartisan immigration bill that was strongly supported by President George W. Bush.
Administration officials said Obama's plan would not add new workers to the American work force, but that it would recognize millions of illegal immigrants who have already been working in the United States.
Opponents of legalization legislation were incredulous at the idea that Obama would take on immigration when economic pain for Americans is so widespread.
"It just doesn't seem rational that any political leader would say, let's give millions of foreign workers permanent access to U.S. jobs when we have millions of Americans looking for jobs," said Roy Beck, executive director of NumbersUSA, a group that favors reduced immigration. Beck predicted that Obama would face "an explosion" if he proceeded this year.
In broad outlines, officials said, the Obama administration favors legislation that would bring illegal immigrants into the legal system by recognizing that they violated the law, and imposing fines and other penalties to fit the offense. The legislation would seek to prevent future illegal immigration by strengthening border enforcement and cracking down on employers who hire illegal immigrants, while creating a national system for verifying the legal immigration status of new workers.
Many details remained to be debated.
“Elections have consequences.”
That’s no excuse for our lack of outspoken opposition and leadership. If we can organize on short notice tens of thousand of people to attend tea parties, we certainly should be able to organize people willing to step up to the plate when it comes to our sovereignty and security. Makes me wonder how many who appear to be on our Team (globalists) really favor open borders. After all, they’d have voted for McCain too.
Attend tea parties? C’mon, wake up; tea parties are nothing but media entertainment. Unless we can win the next elections for senators and representatives the game is over. And America has lost.
The article clearly associates hispanics with illegality. When it comes to immigration, the generalization the author posits is right. Those hispanics clearly place their culture and their pseudo “race” above all else. If the vast majority of illegals were from Scandinavia such racist groups as La Raza and MEChA and MALDEF would be demanding immediate deportations at the very least, and probably executions.
“He is going to destroy this country...while those who put him in office worship him.”
The United States as a constitutional republic is finished. We now have a duty to resurrect it.
“This country will be over, but the mans not crazy, just evil.”
Evil is too weak a word when describing him.
“The heat is turning up on the pressure cooker and there may not be a pressure valve attached.”
“It was a great country.”
Yes, it was. It is in the express lane towards becoming a third-world country. I saw a stat not too long ago that illustrated that the way things are going by 2025 a majority of people in the U.S. will be from third-world countries (and I’m not talking about descendants of third-worlders, but actual third-worlders themselves). The United States as a constitutional republic is finished. It will be a third-world shit hole very soon.
“Unless we can win the next elections for senators and representatives the game is over. And America has lost.”
Yup. And when that happens, the shit will REALLY hit the fan.
You think it will really hit the fan? I do not. The fan (talk radio and freedom of speech in general) will have been taken away. Now that this administration will control all three branches of government, the Presidency, the Congress, the Supreme Court), what avenues will be left to any patriotic opposition? Add to that the leftist media’s commitment to an ‘Obama America,’ and you have all the conditions for tyranny.
“Add to that the leftist medias commitment to an Obama America, and you have all the conditions for tyranny.”
Which is EXACTLY why I think the shit will hit the fan.
Yes, perhaps, but where will it hit and how?
