Morning Plum: Obama to set off bomb in middle of midterms
Washington Post ^ | July 9, 2014 | BY GREG SARGENT

Posted on 07/09/2014 8:52:36 AM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer

Now that Republicans have made it clear that they will not participate on any level in basic problem solving when it comes to our immigration crisis, it is now on Obama to determine just how far he can go unilaterally, particularly when it comes to easing the pace of deportations. This is going to be one of the most consequential decisions of his presidency in substantive, moral, and legal terms, and politically, it could set off a bomb this fall, in the middle of the midterm elections.

I read a piece by Plouffy in the WSJ yesterday how the Dems will turn Arizona, Georgia, and eventually Texas Democrat via immigration.

Republicans are perfectly willing to work on reform. They just don’t want to do what he wants them to do. That’s quite a difference.

Of course, in the new Obama America, there is no loyal opposition - crucial to a democracy - but all opposition has been criminalized.

“Now that Republicans have made it clear that they will not participate on any level in basic problem solving when it comes to our immigration crisis...”

This first sentence of the article is so intellectually dishonest that I didn’t have the stomach to read any more of it. If this type of article/reporting actually passes as “news” today and the Washington Post receives no criticism or blow back for printing this fairy tale, we are most certainly doomed.

Again, one guy, Greg Sargent’s opinion. These newspapers put out this trash like it’s some kind of all-knowing seer who’s speaking.

It’s one guy, one dumb, tyrannical guy named Greg.

Refusal by crybaby House Speaker Boehner to Impeach Obama for failure to secure the Southern Border requires that We, The People take matters into our own hands.

An excellent place to start is for us to “encourage” our local “Independent” School Boards to ban all Public School programs, such as teaching or speaking Spanish, that would, in any way, provide aid and comfort to the Spanish-speaking Illegal Alien Invaders.

Banning the teaching and speaking of Spanish in Public Schools would expel many Illegal Alien Invaders from US Public Schools, and thus reduce the financial impact to US Taxpayers whose taxes pay for Public Schools.

The failure of the Obama Administration to protect the Citizens of the US from the expenses and job losses caused by the Invasion of Illegal Alien Invaders from Spanish-speaking countries proves that this Obama-caused “Dreamer” Invasion was implemented by Obama to “Fundamentally transform the United States of America.”

It is time, - - - time for a change.

It’s a simple matter really. They can match the IRS records of our number of dependents, and compare with our local tax assessors’ information on home sizes. If it’s determined that our homes are under-utilized for our family size, then the Feds can assign us a number of immigrants to come live with us until they reach age 25.

That’s the idea. Immigration becomes the issue, not the many scandals and Obamacare. The MSM will gladly assist in that effort. And it helps get out the Dem base of minorities, especially Hispanics. The Community Organizer knows how to pit groups against one another. Immigration is really just another race card.

From our point of view, it is indeed the Republicans’ fault,

because they’ve made it clear that the man’s teflon tan will shield him from any attempt to thwart his actions.

Now, as far as public opinion goes, the media will spin any occurrence of negative circumstance as being the fault of Repbulicans.

Look at it as a foreshadowing of what they’ll do when the world economy crashes. It won’t be the fault of those that intentionally crashed it, it will be the fault of those that were preparing for it.

What part of "You must turn off the flow before you can fix the problem" don't liberals understand?!?!

It doesn't matter if you are working with water, electricity or immigration problems. The first step is always, ALWAYS the same thing: TURN OFF THE FLOW!

If you do anything else, you are wasting time, energy, and resources!

If these people were working on a patient, they would be screaming that we need to fix his high-blood pressure, all the while, the patient is bleeding out from a massive, sucking chest wound!

CementJungle; you are right and Rush should likely say this on Monday that redistribution does mean taking F/C houses and some not foreclosed and giving them away.

Sargent is a left wing d-bag who need a whoopin...of course the irony is out in California, a true conservative red state (/sar) people have been protesting and stopping bus loads full of immigrants from entering their town the past week...

i heard sargent interviewed by Geraldo prior to the ‘12 election when geraldo had a radio show- Sargent sounds as weasley as he seems...

That can ONLY happen if the 'Rats are successful at breaching the third amendment.

[in other words, breach the 3rd like they've breached 1st, 2nd, 4th thru 10th]

The Editorial Pages of the WSJ is one of the biggest supporters of open borders.

It's entirely true, what you write.

The normally courageous, conservative, and correct WSJ editorial page has somehow lost every smidgeon of clear thinking when it comes to illegal aliens.

They just do not see illegals being the pathway to Dem tyranny, which it absolutely is.

I have read or heard little or nothing from lib media sources that would make me believe they’ve lost faith in Fearless Leader. They do nothing but apologize for King Barack and continue to blame Republicans for not cooperating with His Royal Highness’s plan to “help people.” Just read any of E.J. Dionne’s or Dana Milbank’s a..-kissing Obama columns to understand.

Owebama and the RAT media think that his illegal ‘executive actions’ can be used by RAT senators in the midterms to bolster support are forgetting the fact that no RAT senators are willing to go on record supporting him.

Whatever that bastard does now will enflame both sides against him. Owebama is too stupid to see how toxic he is now.

Someone needs to kick the Shiite out of Valarie Jarret and tell her to keep him on the golf course for the next couple years.

Wasn’t that one of the grievances we went to war over a couple of hundred years ago?

Something about the third amendment was supposed to take care of that.

Ironically, a couple of years ago, I was in a discussion at work about how the this amendment could never be violated. it wouldn’t make any sense. looks like I may have been wrong.

20 years ago, a local commentator said the issue wasn't left versus right but elite versus 'commomer,' what has been called "Country versus Court" by historians.

The WSJ can't help themselves...they have some romantic notion of immigrants which may have been true once, in some world at some point in history. They follow the siren song of 'Noblesse Oblige.'

They have no notion of the consequences of defacto open borders which we endure daily. Besides, where will all the reasonably priced landscapers, maids and nannies come from?

Yes indeed, we went to war over quartering. It relates to the opposite of private property rights - that “your” home and “your” possessions were essentially property of King George. As the feral’s grow, they essentially become more of the mindset that our property is their property, what with taxes, our businesses, our labor. While it might be a tad (emphasis on might) whimsical to still think of the 3rd being breached... the fact remains that unlike yesterday, we are starting to be concerned for this last of the un-breached Bill of Right amendments.

The quartering act was not switched ON from an OFF position. There was a ramp-up... starting around 1766, with billeting soldiers in taverns and empty houses. Later on, occupied homes. Same would happen here, were the 3rd to be breached... right now, looking for military bases and, instead of taverns, bus stations. It can grow from there...

Say, five years ago....if I had to pick one amendment that wasn't in any jeopardy at all...that I was "safe" from ever having to worry about, or pay attention to any incursions on ... it would have been the 3rd.

Truly, we're venturing into uncharted waters. Makes me wonder where the dropoff will be.

Republicans just want to make sure it is the GOP that grants Amnesty, of course, it just won't be called Amnesty because they are stupid enough to think that their base is too stupid not to know this.

The president doesn’t seem to have to make a case for anything anymore, and in fact, what’s scary is that nobody even seems to expect him to pretend to do so.

I think one of the reasons the GOP Old Guard hasn’t been very effective is not because they agree with Obama, but because they are still playing by the old rules and expected him to be playing by them too. It’s beginning to dawn on them that this is a whole different situation. It’s a pity they didn’t open their eyes earlier, but when you think of it, his behavior is completely outside of our normal American experience and for a career politician, used to the same old same old, it’s practically incomprehensible.

That said, even some Dems are beginning to complain so I have some hope that he’s pushing it too far. This immigration stunt may be what does him in.
