Obama Defines ‘Americans’ As People Who Enter The Country Illegally

Last night at an immigration activist dinner in Washington DC Obama took his shameless pandering and tenuous hold on reality to new despicable depths. Speaking before the mostly Latino crowd, the President actually said his best definition of an American is someone who enters this country illegally and leaches off the hard work of others.

Obama got the crowd warmed up by speaking a little Spanish and telling them he rode to the event with two illegal aliens in his limo. Amid the current Secret Service scandal, you have to wonder how illegal aliens get vetted so they can party like a rock star with the President. I wonder if he picked this pair up at the Home Depot.

Actually, as effed up as it sounds, the two illegal aliens are Congressional interns, but I’m still assuming they were picked up looking for day work.

Then, in reference to his DREAM Act, which indefinitely suspends the deportation of illegal immigrants, Obama gave his absurdly skewed view of what it means to be an American:

Because in the end, DREAMer is more than just a title, it’s a pretty good description of what it means to be an American.

Really? That’s what it means to be an American? Someone who comes to this country illegally and takes benefits and services they are not entitled to? Someone who lives in defiance of the law and doesn’t contribute to society? That’s right folks, the President of the United States defines an American as a law-breaking parasite.

Political Correctness Governs Ebola Response

Folks, I must tell you that I’m a little — not conflicted, but I’m guarded here. The news on Ebola, if done the wrong way — and of course I don’t do things the wrong way — but if done the wrong way, could create — I don’t want to even say the word “panic,” but some people are beginning to. And I think it’s predictable that it’s gonna happen.

We’ve had a Missouri doctor from Springfield who flew into Atlanta in full hazmat gear to raise consciousness to his belief that the CDC has no idea what they’re doing, and if they do know what they’re doing, then they’re lying to us. But he’s chalking it up to incompetence.

I’m telling you, it’s incompetence. Now, it may be some informed incorrectness, but there’s also political correctness, which is guiding all of this as I spent many, many minutes yesterday detailing. And I’m gonna give you more evidence of that today. It’s a combination of incompetence and political correctness, but it’s a chicken-and-egg thing. Which breeds which? Is it political correctness, which leads to incompetence, or does the incompetence come first? And, at this point, we may be running out of time to draw any distinction there.

We just have to deal with the reality that people in these time-honored places, these institutions, like the CDC, we’ve always put implicit trust that people there are the best this country has to do what needs to be done there. We’ve thought that about the Secret Service. And now we’re questioning all of this, legitimately so. We are questioning whether or not we’ve got the best. We know we have a president who’s totally unqualified. We have a president who has never done anything and yet believes he is the smartest and the best and the wisest and whatever. And it’s a dangerous combination.

Steve Wynn once again is out there talking about he just can’t believe that this country has elected somebody so unqualified for this job. And it all starts there. If you have somebody unqualified in that job, the people they are gonna put in these very important jobs, these institutions, like the FDA, like the Centers for Disease Control, they are also gonna be incompetent because these people, especially those governed by political correctness — competence is not even a factor when it comes to political correctness. Competence is the last thing you look at in filling positions or coming up with policy ideas.

By definition, political correctness, competence cannot possibly be used because competence means better at it than somebody else or very good at it, and that is not permitted. We’re not to have these kinds of great differences. We’re not supposed to have people super-qualified, really, really good the things, because that humiliates those who aren’t as good, and we don’t want to hurt their feelings. So we put people who aren’t as good, aren’t as qualified in positions of authority to make them feel better, to show that we can be fair, to show that we understand equality and all this gunk, and it’s how you end up in situations such as those that we are finding ourselves in now.

Obama Sues Wisconsin Company, Says English-Language Requirement is ‘Discrimination’

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), a federal agency tasked with enforcing workplace discrimination laws, is suing a private American business for firing a group of Hispanic and Asian employees over their inability to speak English at work, claiming that the English-language requirement in a U.S. business constitutes “discrimination.”

Judicial Watch reported Tuesday that the government is accusing Wisconsin Plastics, Inc. of violating Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which prohibits discrimination based on “national origin.” The government argues this includes the “linguistic characteristics of a national origin group.”

Irene Garcia, the blog editor and Spanish media liaison for Judicial Watch, called the EEOC’s accusation “ludicrous.”

“That’s ludicrous and an overreaching of government,” Garcia told CNSNews.com. “If you are a private company in the United States, you should be able to require your employees to speak English.”

Patriotic American Protesters Turn Buses Filled WIth Illegals Back!

(Photo credit: CBS)

Dozens of American flag-waving protesters Tuesday greeted detained undocumented immigrants as they began arriving at the U.S. Border Patrol Station in Murrieta.

Approximately 140 people were flown into San Diego from Texas at 11 a.m. and bused to Murrieta around 2:20 p.m., with similar groups expected to arrive every three days.

After the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) buses were impeded by protesters Tuesday, the buses were seen driving away from Murrieta headed southbound on the 15 Freeway. It was not immediately clear where they were headed.

The immigrants are being sent to California because Texas border officials are overwhelmed by a recent surge in illegal border crossings.

Medical staff warned: Keep your mouths shut about illegal immigrants or face arrest

A government-contracted security force threatened to arrest doctors and nurses if they divulged any information about the contagion threat at a refugee camp housing illegal alien children at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas, sources say.

In spite of the threat, several former camp workers broke their confidentiality agreements and shared exclusive details with me about the dangerous conditions at the camp. They said taxpayers deserve to know about the contagious diseases and the risks the children pose to Americans. I have agreed to not to disclose their identities because they fear retaliation and prosecution.

“There were several of us who wanted to talk about the camps, but the agents made it clear we would be arrested,” a psychiatric counselor told me. “We were under orders not to say anything.”

The sources said workers were guarded by a security force from the Baptist Family & Children’s Services, which the Department of Health and Human Services hired to run the Lackland Camp.

The sources say security forces called themselves the “Brown Shirts.”

Politics Immigration reform effectively dead until after Obama leaves office, both sides say (YAY!)

The two-year attempt to push immigration reform through Congress is effectively dead and unlikely to be revived until after President Obama leaves office, numerous lawmakers and advocates on both sides of the issue said this week.

The slow collapse of new border legislation — which has unraveled in recent months amid persistent opposition from House Republicans — marks the end of an effort that both Democrats and Republicans have characterized as central to the future of their parties. The failure also leaves some 12 million illegal immigrants in continued limbo over their status and is certain to increase political pressure on Obama from the left to act on his own.

Some of the most vocal proponents of a legislative overhaul now say they have surrendered any last hopes that the parties can reach a deal. The realization marks a low point for advocates who mounted the first serious immigration push since 2007, when a bipartisan effort under then-president George W. Bush was defeated in the Senate.

Sen. Jeff Sessions: Pro-Amnesty Elites Treat People as ‘Commodities’

Perhaps no issue better illustrates the current divide between everyday citizens and our political and business elites than the issue of immigration. The latter group draws the financial gains from a generous labor supply without considering the perspective of those on the other side of the ledger: the working people who have to worry about being laid off and replaced with lower-wage workers, about the strain placed on their local hospitals and neighborhood resources, or about cartel violence spilling across the border into their own communities.

For instance, Sheldon Adelson recently wrote that: “The immigrants here illegally need jobs, want to work and are willing to take on jobs that are not appealing to many Americans.” What about Americans who need jobs? Human beings are not commodities. We need to get our own workers off of unemployment and into good-paying jobs that can support their families. That means if a job is hard or strenuous, employers should raise wages and improve working conditions – why shouldn’t Americans who do tough work get paid more for their efforts?

Graham to GOP: Don’t be ‘delusional’ about immigration reform (Grahmesty Strikes Again!)

Published on: June 15, 2014

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) offered a pointed rebuttal Sunday to strategists and pundits who say embracing immigration reform will put GOP incumbents at risk in future primaries.

Graham said if Republicans let the status quo stand and hope illegal immigrants leave the United States because of poor conditions, they will obliterate their chances of winning the White House in two years.

“If we keep playing this game that self deportation is the only answer for the Republican Party, we will have destroyed our chances in 2016 and dealt a death blow to our party because by 2050 the majority of the country is going to be African American, Hispanic and Asian,” he said on CBS’s “Face the Nation.”

Media pundits and conservative strategists have declared immigration reform in 2014 dead in the wake of House Majority Leader Eric Cantor’s (R-Va.) shocking primary loss last week.

“It was a matter of immigration. It’s ridiculous that people are saying, “Immigration wasn’t an issue.’ It was the main issue in the race,” said William Kristol, the editor of The Weekly Standard, on ABC’s “This Week.”

But Graham, a co-author of comprehensive immigration reform bill that passed the Senate, warned his party not to be “delusional” about the need for the House to act on the issue as well.

“If we become the party of self deportation, if that again is our position in 2016, we’re going to drive a deep wedge between us and Hispanics,” he said on CBS.

An Orchestrated Immigration Wave At The Texas Border? Not So Paranoid To Think So!

As an unprecedented wave of undocumented children from Central America spills over our Texas border, a veteran lawmen’s organization has declared it an “orchestrated” event. If so, who benefits?

To date, there hasn’t been a word from the White House or its agencies urging families in Honduras, Guatemala or El Salvador not to send their children alone through Mexico’s merciless badlands infested with cartel criminals to reach the U.S. There’s some Twitter activity and little else.

But the newspapers and television stations throughout Central America are falsely reporting that amnesty will be theirs if they can just make it through the Mexican obstacle course – and that the time to do it is now.

It doesn’t matter that these children are likely to succumb to desert heat, be snatched by vicious human traffickers, forced into prostitution, slavery or the drug trade, or simply murdered as has already happened to thousands, as the white crosses at the border can attest.

Not since the radio broadcasts that triggered Rwanda’s Tutsi massacres in 1994 has such false information been spread unchecked by authorities who might be able with just their words to make a difference.

U.S. embassy websites still have no warnings to Central Americans about not sending children north, and until recently the U.S. embassy in Guatemala’s website prominently featured links to President Obama’s campaign website with his speech declaring to Guatemalans that “our immigration system is broken.”

Notes on Cantormageddon (Tea Party Lives – GOPe Withers)

Published on: June 13, 2014

You knew Majority Leader Eric Cantor was vulnerable–the press had already reported a non-trivial Anybody But Cantor vote in his district. But I would have settled for his challenger, Dave Brat, getting more than 40%. I was all ready to (legitimately) spin that as a warning shot across Cantor’s bow. Instead, Brat went and actually beat Cantor–decisively, by 10 points, 55% to 45%. He and his campaign manager Zachary Werrell obviously ran a very effective race with minimal resources–against Cantor’s millions. Independent anti-Cantor actors like the We Deserve Better group — and various local conspiracies we don’t even know about — probably played a role as well.**

But the main issue in the race was immigration. It’s what Brat emphasized, and what his supporters in the right wing media (Laura Ingraham, Ann Coulter, Mark Levin) emphasized. It’s the charge Cantor defended against—by conceding the issue and posing as a staunch amnesty opponent.*** But Cantor had signed onto the GOP’s pro-amnesty “principles” and endorsed a poll-tested but irresponsibly sweeping amnesty for children (a “founding principle” of the country, he said). Brat opposed all this, even as illegal immigrant children were surging across the border in search of a Cantor-style deal.

Brat won this immigration debate. Cantor lost. It’s basically that simple. If Cantor had gotten the majority of votes, certainly the MSM would have spun the outcome as a defeat for “comprehensive immigration reform” opponents.

Poll: Most Americans Believe Deportation of Illegal Aliens ‘Not Aggressive Enough’

Kick Them Out: Americans overwhelmingly want “more aggressive” deportation of illegal aliens

Congressional Democrats are demanding that the Obama Administration stop ALL deportations of illegal aliens. “Not one more,” they insist. They want Obama to take the kind of unilateral action he took in 2012, when he ordered all so-called “Dreamers” be free from deportation and arrest.

There’s only one problem: the American People want those illegals DEPORTED — more then ever.

According to a new Rasmussen Report, a majority of Americans do not believe the deportation of illegal immigrants living in the United States is “aggressive enough”.

Democrats want Obama to halt the deportation of illegals until Congress passes a comprehensive immigration reform plan, but voters by a two-to-one margin oppose that idea. Most already think the federal government is not vigilant enough in deporting those who are in this country illegally.

Only 29% of Likely U.S. Voters think the government should stop deporting illegal immigrants until Congress passes an immigration reform plan. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 57% oppose a halt to deportations. Fourteen percent (14%) are undecided.

Sixty percent (60%) believe the U.S. government is not aggressive enough now in deporting illegal immigrants. Fourteen percent (14%) say it is too aggressive, while 16% think the number of deportations is about right.

Hola: Boehner prepares to push amnesty bill through House (RINO Traitor)

House Speaker John A. Boehner announced Tuesday that he has hired a longtime advocate of legalizing illegal immigrants to be an adviser, signaling that the Republican is still intent on trying to pass an immigration bill during this congressional session.

Immigrant rights advocates cheered the move as a sign of Mr. Boehner’s dedication to action. Those who want a crackdown on illegal immigration said the top Republican in the House has moved closer to embracing amnesty by hiring Rebecca Tallent, a former staffer for Sen. John McCain and fellow Arizona Republican Jim Kolbe.

“Tallent’s hiring suggests he really does still want to push an amnesty through the House, which to me suggests that the immigration hawks still have their work cut out for them,” said Mark Krikorian, executive director of the Center for Immigration Studies. “She is a professional amnesty advocate.”

Ms. Tallent is leaving a job as immigration policy director for the Bipartisan Policy Center and will join Mr. Boehner’s staff Wednesday, putting her in the center of one of the thorniest issues in Congress.

Speaker Boehner Kills Senate Amnesty Bill

NBC News recently reported:

House Speaker John Boehner says he will not allow any House-passed immigration legislation to be blended with the Senate’s sweeping reform bill, further quashing the chances of comprehensive immigration reform legislation being signed into law anytime soon.

“We have no intention of ever going to conference on the Senate bill,” Boehner told reporters Wednesday.

Boehner did say that while some action will be taken to reform illegal immigration policies, the GOP will not be rushed by the president’s timetable. “We’ve made it clear that we’re going to move on a common sense, step-by-step approach in terms of how we deal with immigration,” the Ohio Republican told a reporter at the Washington Times on Wednesday.

A spokesman for Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), a member of the Senate’s “Gang of Eight,” told Breitbart News exclusively on Saturday that the House should not pass individual piecemeal immigration bills in a “ruse” to get to a conference committee that would result in a comprehensive immigration bill.

“At this point, the most realistic way to make progress on immigration would be through a series of individual bills,” Rubio spokesman Alex Conant said in an email. “Any effort to use a limited bill as a ruse to trigger a conference that would then produce a comprehensive bill would be counterproductive. Furthermore, any such effort would fail, because any single senator can and will block conference unless such conference is specifically instructed to limit the conference to only the issue dealt with in the underlying bill.”

In taking such a stance, Rubio has now publicly opposed the procedural mechanism through which House GOP leadership and Senate Democratic leadership had planned to try to slip a backdoor amnesty through Congress and save the Senate bill.
