Illegal Immigration

then commences to whine about our supposed human rights violations, which, if there are any at all, are the direct result of progressive/socialist policies.

How UN-American.

If we are to take this one step further we could liken Obama’s lawsuit against Arizona and the subsequent report to the UN as a drug pusher who whines to his addicted flock about not being able to stop selling them dope, all the while enjoying the lavish perks of the income.

As Peter Wehner says in his article “How Obama Sees America”

It is also evidence of a particular cast of mind, one that is eager to undermine America’s moral standing in the world. That has been a consistent effort by the current administration. We have seen if from the president, who seems to take special delight in denigrating our country before the rest of the world, and those such as Assistant Secretary of State Michael Posner, who went out of his way to assure us that in discussions with China about human rights, the Arizona law against illegal immigration was brought up “up early and often. It was mentioned in the first session, and as a troubling trend in our society and an indication that we have to deal with issues of discrimination or potential discrimination, and that these are issues very much being debated in our own society.”

If the apologist in chief were to enforce the laws on the books we would have far less of a problem to deal with. But we know that’s not about to happen.

As The Heritage Foundation points out, the Universal Periodic Review is nothing more than a ham-handed praise fest for all of the human rights abusers to pat themselves on the back, and by joining the farcical circle-jerk, Obama has given the United States her first day in the barrel.   ~ Umm, well, I was paraphrasing a bit there.

Again, how UN-American of you, Obummer.

UPDATE: Linked at TCOTS. Thanks General!

Say it with me…        S – E – V – E – N      T – H – O – U – S – A – N – D    immigration officers have been hindered from enforcing the law of the United States by their superiors for political reasons.

Watch:

I can see November from my monitor.

The Obama regime is scrambling to come up with it’s version of a lame excuse for considering granting amnesty to illegal immigrants by executive order as detailed in an 11 page memo uncovered by FOX News. Way to go FOX! Some real investigative journalism. Show the other wanna-bes in the MSM how it’s supposed to be done.

We should add this to the list of 25 impeachable offenses. It shows an utter disregard for the rule of law in this country and this president and his entire regime should resign. NOW.

This little episode reminds me of a song of unrequited love by a little old three piece band from Texas. ZZ Top.

From the Robo-mail bag:

The Peter Morrison Report

Summary of this week’s report:

The people of Arizona are attempting to defend their state from a
massive invasion of illegal invaders that has brought crime,
poverty and skyrocketing costs for welfare and other public
services. Barack Obama’s Department of Justice has gone to court
to try to have SB 1070 invalidated. This is not just Arizona’s
fight; we are all in this together, and we must stand with Arizona
if we are to keep all of America from turning into a third world
country. Unfortunately, while Rick Perry has spoken in support of
Arizona, he continues to insist that Texas doesn’t need an
Arizona-style law to deal with our own illegals crisis. Please
send Governor Perry a fax and let him know he can no longer waffle
on this critical issue:

Over the past eleven months, a recurring theme of mine has been to ruminate on the perils of big government and what we can do to combat the over reaching arm of federal encroachments on our liberty and freedom. Since some of you are new to the blog, and since I transferred quite a few of those essays from the old site yesterday, I thought I would take the opportunity to point you to the “Prime” tab which will hold links to those essays for your reference.

As an introduction, in reverse order of appearance, here are ten essays on

The Perils of Big Government


Note also that within the “Prime” tab are what I consider to be some of the best writing by other bloggers I’ve run across in my travels. I don’t always have time or think of bookmarking a post so the list is a bit short for now. Most of my time online lately is focused on defeating the Godzilla of a government we’ve been growing, so if your wondrous work is absent, please take no offense at the omission, it may be that I simply haven’t read that particular work or wasn’t in a situation where I was able to make a note. Either way, the fault I’m sure, lies with me.

In addition to the random readings titled “From Other Blogs,” my friends at The Resistance have been very busy assembling valuable information for us to use and peruse. Those links will be posted on “Prime” also as they come available. I will try to make a note of when I make an addition to the “Prime” tab here on the front page but do check out that page from time to time as I may have forgotten to make note. They don’t call me “Mind-Numbed” for nothing.

This post began as a response in the comment section that soon took the form of a rant and hopefully now has been transformed into another, different rant. One that makes more sense and is less ummm, rant-like. I don’t know. You be the judge.

RightKlik, I know you had no intention of stirring me up with this comment on the latest post of the TBF poll but you’ve spurred my residual indignation over the passage of ObamaCare and given me an opportunity to compare it to it’s prostitute mother, *gasp* Social Security.

Here is RK’s comment:

For me, the candidates’ views on ObamaCare has served as a convenient way to identify the sharpest, most conservative candidates. Candidates who have a well thought-out strong statement on ObamaCare invariably seem to be great, well-rounded candidates.

RK, ObamaCare is a hot-button issue with me also. Like you, I try to judge candidates by their views on, and knowledge of the constitution. It’s going to take a well defined legal strategy to not only repeal Obamacare, but to also plan the chess game of how to win the greater war of reversing the trend to this selfish entitlement mentality Americans are growing more entranced by. (What is it with shiny objects?) ObamaCare is a direct product of such a mindset and we must not only defeat it in the congress, we’ve also got to turn public opinion and thinking away from the dependency attitude. People should feel like they are trusted with making their own destiny, not feel like they can’t do anything without a government handout.

True empowerment and a sense of personal pride come from self reliance, not waiting on government to guarantee a safety net or grant you permission.

Conservatives by definition resist change. They are reluctant to embrace political change because mostly in the last hundred years, progressives have infected political and economic thought on both sides of the aisle. Most times a piece of new legislation is proposed, whether it starts out with good intentions or not, it gets a ton of amendments and stipulations attached to it so that the original helpful piece of law is completely transformed into sometimes the exact opposite of the bill than they started with. Most times, in situations like we are in now, a Democrat majority, and even when the Republicans have the majority, there are too many RINO’s to stop the creep of socialism. The best true Conservatives can hope for has been to dig in their heels and slow the progress toward the cliff of socialism.

As a recent example, House Republican Leader John Boehner has been catching some flak lately over comments he made concerning the mother of all entitlements, Social Security, flak that upon closer review, doesn’t hold up to scrutiny.

Why, you ask?

Because given government’s penchant for redistributing your hard earned money, Boehner is right!

Boehner is right when he says the only option for Social Security to remain solvent, is to raise the retirement age to seventy, that is, if you want to save it without raising taxes even more. Given the Obama regime’s attack on working class Americans as demonstrated by their blatant hostility toward free enterprise and capitalism in general,  their lack of enforcement of immigration law, and outright denial of the federal laws’ existence in attacking Arizona’s attempt to seal it’s border, the only way to balance the books at the SS office is to raise taxes, decrease benefits or grant amnesty to 20 million illegal immigrants. Try to decrease benefits to the losers who haven’t put into the system and you’re labeled a racist, baby hating, xenophobe, so the only option the Obama regime offers is amnesty or higher taxes. Boehner correctly points this out when he recognizes the absurdity of increasing the retirement age of Americans who have paid into this failed Progressive Democrat plan that has had 85 years to get it right.

What makes anyone think they can do better with total control of health care?

How they keep selling this garbage to a government educated, academically challenged electorate is simple class envy and racism. Obama’s White House plays the class envy card so much that I’m forced to think it is the only ones in his hand or up his sleeve. Yet most in the media sadly and predictably, give him a free pass. Obama and the Democrats alike need to legalize the illegals en-masse because they see it as 1) an immediate 20m Democrats, and 2) using the new revenue stream as a way to prop up SS and the associated entitlements like medicare, welfare, etc. Never mind the fact the programs as they stand are flawed, broke and in dire need of reforming and reshaping for eventual transfer to the private sector.

Boehner is right because it is important to focus on why Social Security is insolvent. Social Security was and is the perfect ponsi scheme foisted upon the unsuspecting American people. A Three Card Monty with the “security card” taken off the table soon after the first shuffle. I see now that it was replaced with the “race card.”

Social Security is the prime example of the drawbacks of a true Democracy and the pandering it promotes. It resulted in a government run slush fund used to steal from every productive worker to give to the chosen. SS was proposed and passed by a progressive leaning congress, freshly educated/indoctrinated in Keynesian make-believe monetary schemes, deciding after passage, but knowing pre… that it, and the entitlement thinking it would spawn would become the greatest threat to liberty known to man. A Totalitarian Democracy enforced by aristocrats hell bent on protecting you from yourself at everyone else perceived expense.

Cornucopia Utopia.

Cornutopia!

All one has to do is look across the pond to the European failure in their Socialist experiment gone wild. Greece and the EU stand as a tarnished, rusty example of the degradation of socialist/communist political practice, lack of ethical behavior, outright corruption and the exposing of the absolute greed and selfishness that a true democracy fosters.

This is what inhabits not only the buildings of our capitol, but what infects the minds of the people who would enslave you by pushing the Democratic/ Progressive Socialist agenda. Obamacare, Cap and Trade, The Global Warming lie,  TARP, Stimulus, and government takeovers of private industry are all examples of why the solution to problems caused by a large, centralized federal government is not more government.

We’ve got a long road ahead folks. Let’s dig in by electing leaders with a belief in the Constitutional Republic we were meant to inherit.

Democracies fail. Always have, always will. They eat themselves from the inside out.

A maggot has no thought of what it  eats. It only knows the innate hunger. The lust for power is no different.

UPDATE: My friend Bob Belvedere has posted commentary to a post by Si Vis Pacem, and surprisingly, or not, they have been discussing some of the same points I brought up here. That being, we deplore the term Democracy as applied to the USA. I highly recommend both reads.

And remember, The U.S.A. is a Constitutional Republic. Thank you.

Wow. It seems like everybody who’s anybody is talking about this. No Sheeples Here has a post on it and I heard about it from Obi’s Sister.

It’s being reported that 17 Afghan soldiers here for training are loose in the US, and have been for about 2 years or less and we are just now hearing of it. The reports are somewhat vague as to the duration of individual cases although I might infer that they have been filtering out into the population in small numbers.

Some are questioning why the reports are only being released now. Fox News quotes an unnamed senior law enforcement official:

“Although we are vigilant and need to work toward not allowing this to happen,” the official said, this alert should “not necessarily” be described as “a national security threat, more of a ‘hey these guys violated our laws and we need to find them.'”

OK sport, maybe you could look for about 12 million or so illegal immigrants while you’re at it. Both cases are quite similar with the exception that we transported these possible terrorists here at taxpayer expense. I hear we have some neat new detention facilities in which to house these guys, should they ever be caught. They could learn basket weaving with the rest of  ’em.

I can tell you the first place I would look for these guys, it’s a place that they would fit right in, never to be noticed.

The Obama Administration.

Glenn Beck sent out an email on it earlier today and Fox also has some info, including the names and Memeorandum has more info along with Scared Monkeys, The Jawa Report, Weasel Zippers, Confederate Yankee, Atlas Shrugs, Liberty Pundits Blog, Patterico’s Pontifications and And So it Goes in Shreveport

Another question, why don’t they post the photos? Are they afraid someone might recognize one of them? Am I supposed to go up to random Afghan looking dude and ask “Hey, aren’t you… *picks out random name from list* Mohammad Nasim Fateh Zada, born 12/4/1966?” I can’t even pronounce it. Besides, that would be racial profiling, wouldn’t it?

As Obi’s Sister says, “What could go wrong?”

WTF! Every day this country looks more and more like a clip from a Saturday Night Live skit. What kind of bizzaro world is it where a criminal gets better treatment in a detention center than in the country from whence they came?

It seems ICE is in negotiations with it’s confinement contractor to “improve” their detention facilities:

Overall, the facilities are expected to be less prison-like, offering freer movement for detainees, fewer pat downs and better access to legal resources. The agreement calls for fresh vegetables and access to self-serve beverages along with cooking and exercise classes, according to a list released by ICE.

CCA will soften “the look for the facility with hanging plants, flower baskets, new paint colors, different bedding and furniture” and allow lengthy visits from friends and family who can provide outside packages or food for special celebrations under changes to be made over the next six months.

Hey, GREAT NEWS! Now we can bring Uncle Carlos that birthday cake he’s been asking for, except now we won’t have to put a file in it. We’ll just hand it to him along with the knife, gun and keys to the stolen car we left down the road!

Then the family arrives at the facility to find that it’s improved so much, they want to move in! “Arrest me! Arrest me!”

I tell you what, my house could stand some new drapes and a coat of paint too. You think I might could “detain” some of those aliens for you? On second thought, I retract.

Wait, it gets better:

ICE Director John Morton announced last year that the agency would make detention facilities less prison-like because immigrant detainees are being held on civil immigration charges, not criminal offenses…

Yes, you read that correctly. More language calisthenics from the apologists in ICE. Being illegal is not considered criminal. Question: Hey, Mr. Morton Moron, what part of illegal don’t you understand?”

Representatives of the detention officers union sound to me like the only ones with their collective heads out of their arses.

“It’s absolutely insane, the changes they’re making,” said Chris Crane, president of AFGE Council 118/ICE, the union that represents 7,000 ICE officers but not the contractors. “It just makes for an absolutely unsafe environment, not only for the detainees, but for the officers.”

He contends that many detainees could be drug dealers or gang members – even if they haven’t been convicted.

How about instead of spending money painting and otherwise sprucing up the prison and teaching them the fine art of basket weaving, we deport the river swimming, fence jumping, desert crossing law breaking criminals. What do these brain surgeons in ICE think this is going to do to deter future illegals from coming here in the first place?!

I’ll tell you what.

Nothing.

All it is, is more chaos and subjugation heaped upon the backs of the American people.

Had enough yet?

UPDATE: Does Michelle Malkin read the Robot?

Wow. Apparently, there is at least one conservative in California. Who new?

Bravo Congressman. Bravo. Thank you for saying what our President should have.
H/T Kurt.

As I recall, a couple of days ago, General B. Belvedere posted a rather alarming story. According to TCOTS there are some pictures of some racist Miss USA Contestants out there and I aim to find them. Wait a second while I pretend to do a quick search….

Hmmm, Something is amiss here. Can’t find any ladies in white hoods on the interwebz. Let me go back to Bob’s original posting

Doh!

My bad. He said raaaaacy, not raaaaacist. I feel like such a boob.

Well, now that I’ve screwed this post up like, totally,  you deserve some reward for your clicking trouble, so I’ll post a few of the raaaaacy beauties for your enjoyment.

How to choose? They are all so offensively lovely. Wait! I know. I’ll pick Texas and the bordering states! Yea, that’s the ticket.

Now for some solidarity, let’s play guess the state…

Here’s a reminder of why you need to click that Help For Tennessee link in the top middle column.

You do know there are five a’s in raaaaacy, don’t you?

Want more? OK, here is more Rule 5 than you can handle.

Here is this week’s installment of the Peter Morrison Report. But before we get to that, I have a question. Why has it become a raaaaacial issue to speak against an illegal activity? Especially one that will clearly bankrupt the country if the practice is continued?

The Peter Morrison Report

Summary of this week’s report:

Texas State Rep. Debbie Riddle created a firestorm when she told a
left wing talk show host discussing the recent Arizona bill that
the reason race-based Hispanic groups aren’t in favor of a
crackdown on illegal immigration is that they’re used to
entitlements and want to keep them coming. Questioning
entitlements going to illegal aliens is an unpardonable sin in
politics. We need to commend Rep. Riddle and thank her for speaking
up on this issue and for refusing to back down in the face of
numerous personal attacks on her character.

Send a fax to Rep. Riddle,

Full report:

Texas State Representative Debbie Riddle (R-Tomball) found herself
in the middle of a firestorm the other day after she gave an
interview to an obscure left wing talk show host in Houston. An
attorney named Geoff Berg hosts a weekly talk show called Partisan
Gridlock on station KFPT which, just like Berg’s politics, is on
the far left end of the FM dial. KFPT is affiliated with the
notoriously radical Radio Pacifica network. For an idea of where
Berg and KFPT are coming from, just look at a few of the programs
on the station’s schedule: Queer Voices, Proyecto Latino
Americano, Uprising, Arab Voices, Nuestra Palabra and Voz de la
Tierra.

Berg was interviewing Rep. Riddle about her call for a crackdown on
illegal immigration. Rep. Riddle has promised to introduce
legislation this year that will be very similar to the recent bill
passed in Arizona; in other words, she wants a law on illegal
immigration that will actually be effective. During the interview,
Berg employed a typical left wing tactic – he prefaced his question
with “Without making it a racial issue…”, and then proceeded to
bluntly make opposition to illegal immigration into a racial issue.

Guess they weren’t TEA Partiers, or the MSM would have been all over it like fleas on a hound.

The Camp of the Saints has a couple of things to say about it.

William Teach over at The Pirate’s Cove found some other news on the riots in a couple of protests.

Gator Doug also has an expose’ on the May Day riots in Greece.

Even more on the protests from Michelle Malkin.

Matt Ross at Western Front America has legal dissection of the Arizona law and some more video.

Question: Does anyone in the MSM know how to use a search engine?

A quick search using the words “illegal protest violence” turned up plenty of evidence to support the fact that there was violence at the protests. Why is it ignored?

Here are some of the results: Red State, Hot Air, News Busters.

If you don’t have any of those sites bookmarked yet, what are you waiting for?
