Just in case you missed it – another Kenyan Obama was granted full residency status yesterday. Yep! An immigration judge in Boston on Tuesday halted the deportation of President Obama‘s Kenyan-born uncle and granted him status as a legal permanent resident.
Onyango Obama, half brother of the president’s late father, came to the United States in 1963 from Kenya on a student visa that expired in 1970. He has been living in the country unlawfully ever since. (Please remember this…)
Judge Leonard Shapiro ruled from the bench that Onyango Obama qualified for a provision in federal immigration law that allows immigrants who have lived in the United States since before 1972 and have “good moral character” to apply for legal permanent residency, also known as a “green card.”
The judge said Obama was a good neighbor and a gentleman and had paid his taxes. At the end of the hearing, the judge said, “Welcome to America.”
Obama had ignored a deportation order issued in 1992. His immigration status was not publicly known until he was arrested on suspicion of drunk driving in 2011 in Framingham, Mass., west of Boston. He allegedly told police at the time, “I think I will call the White House.”
Shapiro previously granted an asylum request for Onyango Obama’s sister and the president’s aunt, Zeituni Onyango, in 2010. She had been ordered deported in 2004 after her first asylum request was rejected.
Actually we became privy to this pitiful story about three days ago. As for me I could not write with good-conscience until I gathered more information.
Accountability – being a responsible, consider somebody or something to have a particular quality, to do something in a way that does justice to one’s abilities or character. We feel the need to further espouse that other characteristics of accountability are having insight based on explanation and description.
Approximately 3 years ago, as Uncle Omar was fighting deportation following a DUI charge, the White House asserted to The Boston Globe without any apparent qualification that Onyango Obama “has never met his famous nephew.”
That statement was untrue.
Uncle Omar testified at an immigration hearing earlier this week that the younger Obama had briefly lived with him for several weeks in the 1970s.
That testimony called attention to the White House’s contradictory statement and led the administration to recant the untruth in a new statement to The Boston Globe on Thursday:
“The president first met Omar Obama when he moved to Cambridge for law school,” said White House spokesman Eric Schultz. “The president did stay with him for a brief period of time until his apartment was ready. After that, they saw each other once every few months, but after law school they fell out of touch. The president has not seen him in 20 years, has not spoken with him in 10.”
The White House claims that the error was the result of failing to personally ask the president whether he had ever met, let alone lived with, his uncle. This time, the White House says, the press office asked the president.
The relationship is important because reporters have been investigating whether anyone at the White House has paid attention to or interceded in Uncle Omar’s immigration battles.
The White House maintains that Uncle Omar’s case was free of “any interference from the president or the White House,” according to the Globe. Well hellyeah! After all this did come from a fact fabricating pathological lair.
Instead we have heard a lot about a health-care overhaul that already needs an overhaul. Additionally, the United States internationally has been entangled in one huge scandal after another.
Furthermore, in a rare but very realistic maneuver House Speaker John Boehner killed the possibility of taking up the Senate bill; President Obama conceded and said a piecemeal approach likely to be used by the House in 2014 could work for him.
All things being equal there is not a hill of beans that looking upon a Senate S.744 consisting of well over 2,000 pages has alerted those in the House that maybe immigration reform is not about amnesty – mind you for some that is all that matters. Yet looking toward real immigration reform, as we have suggested should be dealt with preferably one issue at a time.
An Example of the Mainstream-media:
“Considering the House’s record of accomplishment, sometimes it is tough to imagine anything being accomplished on immigration beyond tougher border enforcement, and that would leave unchanged the status of more than 11 million living in the shadows.”
Another Example of fair and balanced media:
Insofar as the House is concerned it has been within their charter to engage in tougher border enforcement – this does include the complete infrastructure of our borders and by popular demand the American people have spoken regarding law enforcement and the condition of this nation’s borders.
No Mainstream or Fair and Balanced media:
As far as 11 million illegal’s living in the shadows – is tantamount to a cliché, one used far to much. Daily we see immigrants without any legal authority whatsoever getting far brasher and demanding in an entire load of rallies and protests.
This week a group of about 50 advocates for immigration will fast in Chicago for at least 24 hours to show solidarity with a group that has been fasting in Washington, D.C. for more than two weeks, said Lawrence Benito, chief executive officer of the Illinois Coalition for Immigrant and Refugee Rights (Our fear has been realized: Immigration AND Refugee Rights).
The movement for reform includes religious leaders, business leaders, Democrats and Republicans. We have experienced factious orthodox religion trying hard with their conglomerates of special interest advisors, advocacy groups, and make-shift Scriptural readings. However, as long as it took us during our information gathering and research, it did not take long to see what this colition of evangelicals is trying to do.
Obama should require government agencies to halt deportations of those who fit requirements for legal residency under the Senate bill, Giovagnoli said. “That’s a reasonable approach,” she added. “You’re actually respecting Congress.” Absolutely demented.
Comprehensive Immigration Reform
Several times we here at The Contemplative Thinker have brought data to support our claim when liberals are stalled during the debate or let us just bring it real now – when it gets too hot in the kitchen rather than leave, reassess, and make qualified recommendations – the liberal stays in and changes the subject.
Nowhere was this more pronounced by facts than during President Obama’s two campaigns for his current office. Realistically now, where are the subjects such as The Internal Revenue Service (IRS), the watchful eye of the Justice department’s spying on the personal particulars of reporters.
Again just think of this menagerie of bulls waltzing through a China Shop. We still have a record of offensive demography conducted by this current administration. How about Fast & Furious – or did anyone face trial or discipline when one of the weapons sold through this contemptible and dreadfully run operation was found at the same site of a tragic murder of Brian Terry an on duty Border Patrol agent. Or how about the continual and rather disgraceful display of “My own self-government” that lists President Obama as the number one asset to skirting Congress (Author’s title and emphasis).
Then again with whatever known agencies (NSA, FBI, and CIA) operating data albeit with cameras, credit cards, licenses, or anything rendered public – has anyone seen even a photo of the processing plants in Utah? Who worries, they have their own Court — FISA — that is accountable only to them.
So you do not particularly care for how a law is, albeit written or for what it stands for. Laws written by President Thomas Jefferson during the founding era. Ah the heck with it…let us change it, right Mr. and Mrs. Senator’s.
Disgusting! We have been writing about this rubbish for too long and the emphasis is changed or some liberal minded Representative from Maryland goes public and says, “…that’s a non-issue.”
Therefore we believe it is accountability time. The leaders of this administration have planned, organized, and befuddled everyone with their dishonesty. I wonder about the military…are they fed-up with being shot at, being dictated to by Afghan leaders.
The principles of this Administration are intending to treat all of us with the millennial mind-set. They have been for over five years and it is working. They may call it a “scandal” but I am still uneasy about giving anything to the IRS. How do you feel about knowing that US Attorney General Eric Holder, who has a Contempt charge against him, is gainfully employed by our government?
And here it is, the reason I sat to write was originally Obamacare yet he is betting we will continue to let that issue slide, and now even amidst a squirrelly deal with limiting Iran’s nuclear capabilities a brand new hat has been donned, Comprehensive Immigration Reform. Lord, please help us all!
An openly homosexual columnist in Ireland has written a piece blasting his country for considering same-sex marriage, warning the state has no business reinventing the family and undermining children’s “right” to a mother and father.
“Same-sex marriage is not some warm, fluffy equality bunny; it’s a bare-faced state power grab,” Manning writes. “The state gets to entirely remake marriage, not as the man/woman/child model we’ve inherited from 10,000 years of history and across all cultures, but as an anything-goes irrelevant partnership agreement between adults.”
We believe that these two examples alone should have a tremendous impact on anyone who is reading. Why? Because in the first paragraph what gives the state or any legislature the power to define “family” into whatever perspective they feel is best? What the state in this particular case is doing is ignoring society’s ways of operation.
Furthermore what the state is taking the right of having a mother and father away from the child. In essence the state is foregoing mountainous volumes of behavioral and sociological data that with facts and evidence out of the hands of the people. And in this particular case – again – is having its go at playing God; or subsequently, every society for the last 10,000 years.
One last item to bring up with regards on society making. President James Madison in public writings, books, and in countless speeches warned our electorate of factions. How many times per day do you hear, “yes but…the majority doesn’t always win…” And don’t you just wish you had even one dime for every time it is stated however, the person saying it doesn’t have a clue what they are talking about?
Same-sex marriage is not supported by the majority, but states could care less insofar as that is the brevity that they reach without federal intervention. At least for now.
Interestingly Mr. Manning, who is narrating this article, goes on to say, “Manning explains same-sex unions will render marriage “irrelevant” because “for the first time, children and parenthood [will have] no place in marriage.”
And that is only one mention of the downsides of same-sex marriages. Couples are now going to the several states looking for their means of equality such as the same items that traditional marriages receive…Good luck.
“Only a man and a woman have children, despite every fantasy the gender-busters want us to believe,” Manning writes. “Every child has a right to that natural life. Same-sex marriage asks us to ignore reality and children’s rights to a mother and father.”
As for the second paragraph example, we believe what Manning is stating what about tradition, values, and morals. Moreover, (if there is such a thing) he actually addresses the rights of the unborn as well as all of the parties of the traditional marriage.
We believe that the following is why special interest groups are organizing, spending ridiculous amounts of money in support of what they may not believe.
Ireland’s Prime Minister Enda Kenny said he supports same-sex marriage “very strongly” and that the Government will actively campaign for it. Government supporting the causes, which as you know is precisely the same as Barack Obama has done here in America.

After six messy weeks – defined chiefly by the partial government shutdown and troubled roll-out of the federal government’s healthcare exchange website — President Barack Obama’s reputation with the American public has faltered in some ways, but not in others. Most notably, for the first time in his presidency, fewer than half of Americans, 47%, say Obama is a “strong and decisive leader,” down six percentage points since September.
Now my friends I will not purpose to be a liberal leaning piece of the mainstream-media mob. However, does anyone notice how cordial even the folks at Gallup are reporting: “defined chiefly by the partial government shutdown and troubled roll-out of the federal government’s healthcare exchange website…” literally takes just about all culpability away from Obama and shoves it all around? Yet, there are those of us who are simply not buying.
There is however a striking bit of truth in this parody. Of the first part, most people naturally think – and espouse, defined chiefly by the Republican effort in the partial government shutdown. Sadly second, is the notion of the troubled roll-out of the federal governments healthcare exchange website?
Let us look at the reality in stauncher terms shall we? If the “Buck stops here” at Obama’s desk, we will believe there are many people who have taken serious shrapnel. Some have even been left behind.
Similarly, the share of Americans who view Obama as “honest and trustworthy” has dipped five points. Exactly half of Americans still consider Obama honest and trustworthy, but this is down from 55% in September and 60% in mid-2012 as Obama was heading toward re-election.
Americans’ confidence in their chief executive to manage the government has also waned five points since September, to 42%. However, this level is similar to 44% in June and 45% in June 2012.
Well we believe that Obama’s productivity would certainly rise if he were to concentrate more on Domestic and Foreign affairs.
Google’s new Digital Attack Map reveals that the U.S. experiences daily cyber attacks. Though much of the map’s real-time cyber activity is untraceable, the map does confirm that China heavily targets the U.S. This underscores the need for the U.S. to make China feel a cost for its cyber espionage and theft.
Earlier this year, the cyber security firm Mandiant reported that the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) has stolen hundreds of terabytes of information from over 140 U.S. organizations. Also earlier this year, the Commission on the Theft of American Intellectual Property reported that the U.S. loses $300 billion per year from cyber espionage,
chiefly from China. This does not even begin to calculate the national security risks the U.S. faces.
Is it just me or does ALL the bells and whistles sound off regarding Comprehension Immigration Reform?
Beyond threatening other nations, China’s cyber activities are also directed toward maintaining domestic control using the “Great Firewall” to censor online access and content. In fact, cyber actors within China targeted the personal email accounts of human rights activists in China, the U.S., and Europe. News of this latest breach drove Google to end its cooperation with Beijing, believing that China’s cyber exploitation cannot coexist with business security, private-sector profits, economic progress, or global Internet freedom.
Apart from securing its own cyber networks with essential legislation—focusing on supply chain security and private-public information sharing—the U.S. should turn from its current ambivalence and advance its cyber security internationally. Partnering with friends from around the globe would allow the U.S. to lead the struggle for Internet freedom and make cyber crime too economically and politically costly to continue.
Mind you – all things being equal – one of the biggest reasons why the USA advocates having the United Nations located in the U.S. is the notion of, “Keep your friends close, but always keep your enemies closer.”

So it has been stated, “How other people in future elections will negotiate candidates of color.” Please, we implore anyone reading this quibble to please be open and objective; we feel that this question is not wrong in asking.
Please believe me, your trusty editor-in-chief, that no malice is regarded certainly because we do not believe anyone on our staff here at The Contemplative Thinker is racist. Maybe that is why we feel it is an earnest question to be asked.
We believe based on evidence and action that Barack Obama is a liar. The bizarre means he used and continues to use along with the reckless disregard for elements of truth guaranteed every citizen in the U.S.A. by way of the Constitution is by no means hindering or otherwise keeping Obama’s feet from the “line in the sand” of keeping to the truth.
Daily we see and hear of decisions he has made affecting other people’s lives. Albeit whether it is freely granted Amnesty, more food stamps, retrenchment of reform in the welfare department or whatever — costly decisions are being made.
And just to keep it fresh in our reader’s minds are the calamities of the Internal Revenue Service that must be investigated for misappropriation of public funds, the Benghazi scenario, why does his Justice Department feel it is apropos to eavesdrop on personal lines of journalists, if or a big why concerning Fast & Furious, and of course his pathetic apology.
Everything mentioned above has impeachable offenses for the Office of the President.
Other Critical Findings
This person or want to be president seems to believe that he has the right, title, and interest to skirt Congress in matters of immigration. Nothing could be further than the truth. Immigration and Naturalization Services (INS) are within the direct charter of the Congress. Sorry but no Executive Orders or Memorandums to Order for other heads of agencies (Janet Napolitano and DHS or Eric Holder and Justice) in other words there are preexisting lines of job descriptions inherent for all agencies to balance the powers of government.
Now we have come full circle to present a dilemma that may or may not be influencing the electorate, moreover, the U.S. citizenry. Our question is simply this: Do you believe that Barack Obama, given his history especially with Obama Care could affect any other African American from running for, or winning the office of President?
Everyone capable of watching television during the post 2008 election, will ever forget the revelry, pride, and release of all African American’s in the nation of the United States with regards to Obama being the “1st A/A President”. However, do you believe that predicated upon this man’s behavior, disrespect for the rule of law and then, his outright lying to the citizenry about his namesake legacy, Obamacare, that will deter voters or otherwise from electing another African American for the presidency. In other words, isn’t Barack Obama sort of shouldering how or what people may suspect from another candidate of color?
There should not be any dissenters given this little fact. Has the U.S. government ever created a business entity that experienced success? It is a quagmire indeed when one thinks about the United States inclusive of “The American Dream” and the grandiose amounts of money given away each year in funding nations that do not deserve it. It is very much like yesterdays squib about how illegal immigrants are really abusing the kind system that we offer.
All we are doing here is making an educated statement about how government entities should stay the heck out of private business’. When one takes a mild look at what the U.S. government has done to effectuate business it is a sorry and indeed expensive process to stare at.
We are not big enterprisers’ when it comes to the Social Security Administration. As long as I’ve been alive they have been regulating, stealing, and sure as anything they have created just another hog. Does anyone know what the Federal Aviation Administration does? Regulate? Whew! My father should be rolling in his urn about now – he spent over 30 years with the FAA, although what do they do in regards to the National Transportation Safety Board? These are the gang that goes out and cleans up the human parts, luggage, and try to set a course of how it happened.
Sadly however no agency is not without its bad apples. You come up upon just an arm…it is intact, very little blood albeit sporting a Rolex watch and rings loaded with diamonds. Do you think for a split second that the first person on scene is not going to be the new owners of that property?
Seriously if one were to look at government owned utilities there would be shock. All one needs to do now if look at the various phone companies. Anytime you have a chief executive on 60 Minutes who could not begin to tell you what the small excise taxes are for on your bill, there needs to be a change…another way, the guy is stealing.
Just a couple of severe concerns to pass along to you; When Henry Ford got done with the assembly line and Model T’s, just like his very rich mate Thomas Edison I don’t think this crew sat around talking of money or how to make it.
Nah, I err on the caution that a person with that kind of brain is already working on ways of getting out of the combustive engine business knowing full well that there would be future problems.
In the short of it most politicians are either lawyers, or poly-sci geeks that want to be so assuring that they learn the language of the jargon they speak – which really amounts to nothing, except for the “oh you have hurt yourself, let me get you a band aid.
Governments and their workers should stay the heck away from business. Leave insurance coverage to those who have spent 30 or so years in it. Because if you do not…you’ll soon be the pathological liar.
For years, perhaps decades, and generations the government has failed to control our borders. The southern border illegal immigration has sky rocketed since the 70s. Prior to and after September 11, 2001 there has been little or nothing concrete accomplished to establish real border security and immigration control. On the contrary, much has been done to decrease our security and immigration control.
President Bush messed up by giving illegal immigrants citizenship. Seeing this, others said to themselves, if it can happen once, it can happen again, this time for me. Let us go to the USA! President Bush encouraged illegal immigration!
The current administration has done even worse. Telling Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) not to deport, telling the U.S. Border Patrol to back off (release until court date), not getting the fence completed, do not deport unless they are a felon and dozens of other justifications for not enforcing existing federal law continues at striking rates. Promising a fast track to legal status if you violated our immigration laws is what this entire mess has turned in to.
Now let us look at the receiving end of the lack of border enforcement. The list seems endless and at times we wonder what the Hades our own government is doing.
It is vitally important to the understanding of this writing that we all huddle-up and come to a common understanding. Barack Obama has only made matters worse and in doing that he has raised a hell storm in the USA.
We, at The Contemplative Thinker, as an organization as well as individuals – mostly citizens but not all of us are US citizens are quite concerned with what this mad person is doing.
The only reasonable rationale is that he simply does not care, or that he gains pleasure counting the ways he skirts Constitutional as well as US federal law. Now let us not forget, we are talking about the POTUS here.
Yep it is that same person who tells fabrications upon more lies. We firmly believe that it has gotten to the point of pathology.
Being informative is quintessential. It was the POTUS who behind closed doors began issuing Memorandums of Order to those people who worked as Secretary’s or a Ministry for our international guests. Between the Executive Orders and Memorandums this person has authorized some 11 million or more people to come on over, free of charge, and do not worry, once here you will want for nothing.
That is after you have first disabled the U.S. taxpayer in every conceivable way. So let us make sure you are all signed up for the “Benefits Package” which of course covers food stamps, rights to healthcare, paid housing in one way or another – either just as soon as you arrive, or as soon as you have picked a place to live. Oh yes, our founders did not believe that we should pay for education so not to worry, education is free including the pencils needed to write with and paper to write on.
Now if any one of your children attending a school in the USA, and unfortunately you are down on your luck, please do not worry because we have the best school lunch programs not available in any other nation, which also includes day care and food for those children as well.
We believe in our organization that most of our elected officials have completely lost any awareness of what establishing a solid immigration system would save us in the short term. We also believe that there comes a time for diminishing returns; consequently, if one continues to make getting here easy, and then once here you’ve hit the lottery, well people just don’t look up to and try to do the same or one way or another share those values, ethics, and morals with the people they live with – point of diminishing returns.
Comprehensive Immigration Reform: Survivors Can’t Afford to Wait
Domestic Violence Awareness Month has ended, but our work to end abuse continues. Today, in this country, women and children continue to suffer from unspeakable violence because they are afraid to seek help without legal status. When immigrant survivors of abuse without legal status are, according to one study, half as likely to call the police to seek the help they need, we must act.
In the above referenced example there is clearly the posture that we have been exploiting for years now. Are you really surprised that is whenever a liberal is losing an argument; subsequently, when the debate loses its ‘grunting points’ – we have tried to alert other debaters and potential leaders of our country that this is indeed their process – to wit: This particular piece STARTS with the ideology of abuse and that at the domestic level. Not only domestic mind you but also the immigrant survivors.
Then where do you suppose this thing goes? Well of course…to the immigrant survivor. Of course they cannot lead with that insofar as their “Demagogue of Democracy” has done everything within his power (as well as Congress,’ Judicial, Ad Nauseam) in an effort to stop deportation, incarceration, literally hand-cuffing immigration control officers, local law enforcement, and especially the U.S. Border Patrol Agency.
Since it was first signed into law in 1994, the Violence Against Women Act or VAWA has recognized the need for special protections for immigrant survivors of abuse, including self-petitions and categories of visas for victims of violent crimes and human trafficking. But while VAWA includes key provisions to help immigrant survivors, it is not enough.
Many grant programs authorized in VAWA have been funded by the U.S. Congress. The following grant programs, which are administered primarily through the Office on Violence Against Women in the U.S. Department of Justice have received appropriations from Congress:
STOP Grants (State Formula Grants), Transitional Housing Grants, Grants to Encourage Arrest and Enforce Protection Orders, Court Training and Improvement Grants, Research on Violence Against Indian Women, National Tribal Sex Offender Registry, Stalker Reduction Database, Federal Victim Assistants, Sexual Assault Services Program, Services for Rural Victims, Civil Legal Assistance for Victims, Elder Abuse Grant Program,Protections and Services for Disabled Victims, Combating Abuse in Public Housing, National Resource Center on Workplace Responses, Violence on College Campuses Grants, Safe Havens Project, Engaging Men and Youth in Prevention
Please remember that the funding although it appears going to the several states, we must be clearly advised that this funding is from U.S. Taxpayers and need be authorized by Congress to be approved and sent.
Now just a little spin ξξξξ Is it any wonder why there are so many “Months” that capitulate into funding? Why are we servicing what is referred to as immigrants, when what they mean to say is “illegal immigrants.” Therefore to all mainstream-media: These pandering uses of incorrect phrases are not being politically correct – it is worse, it is changing a language, from reality to the unknown.
It is difficult to not perceive the increased size of the government when each special interest or advocacy group now needs the operating capital to amply see to its whatever mission.
And yes that too as well – what on earth is this country doing other than welcoming illegal aliens into the country, and then making their organizations a part of the relational goings on.
