Prior to going berserk and launching into a tirade about a few misnomers that are happening especially by the “more seasoned” portion of Congress, that being the Senate there are just a few issues we should address if we ever again have a hope of reclaiming this nation.
Issue #1 – Is the unlegislated supply of arms and machinery of war that is being doled off to the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt. Today we read shockingly for us that,
“Damnable U.S. Senators Send Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood – 20 U.S. Taxpayer F-16 Fighter Jets and 200 Abrams Tanks: While They Crucify Our Christians! Senators Must Be Stopped!”
Lately we’ve been getting our fair share of what we refer to as “Comments of Dissention” where our readers of those nations who are suffering at the hands of radical governments or other mean of religious cleansing. Folks this is just about more than we are able to stand.
Recently whilst poll gathering and reporting we came across a stupefying statistic that we are having serious doubts about now. We read that the only measure of similarities that exist between nations, according to the United Nations, is the notion of religious tolerance, or as reported Religious Rights along with freedom for a person to worship as they wish.
Today we are well-aware of Coptic Christians being persecuted in Egypt; moreover, we now find that other Christians are being decimated in Nigeria, Sudan, as well as regions of the Congo. Now if we tie in the atrocities of violence in Syria, Iraq, Iran, and Yemen again aimed at Christians one would think that the U.S. would be a bit more discretionary on who and where these huge sums of money are being sent as well as whose side the U.S. is taking in Syria.
The following is from an article written by Jennifer Rubin, in the Washington Post:
“Amid the discussion of the feckless White House stance toward Syria and its implications for preventing Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapons capability, we should not lose track of the human rights catastrophe.
In a cruel (maybe clueless?) bit of timing, on May 1 the White House blog recited the following:
On April 23 of last year, President Obama visited the Holocaust Museum, and unveiled a comprehensive strategy to prevent mass atrocities.
In his remarks at the Museum, the President reflected on places where the United States’ efforts had helped prevent or mitigate surges of violence and had saved innocent lives. One year later, the U.S. Government has done… the U.S. Government has done much to keep faith with this commitment. At the President’s direction, we have stood up an interagency Atrocities Prevention Board, which monitors emerging threats, focuses U.S. Government efforts, and develops new tools and capabilities. In January 2013, the President signed expanded war crimes rewards legislation, giving the State Department a new tool to promote accountability for the worst crimes known to humankind. Earlier this month, the United States supported the U.N. General Assembly’s adoption of an Arms Trade Treaty with robust safeguards against export of weapons for use in genocide, crimes against humanity, and other enumerated atrocities.
Oh, but it’s done nothing about 75,000 dead Syrians or Syria’s use of chemical weapons, itself a war crime. The White House’s passivity with regard to Syria is stunning.
Issue #2 – Why are we arming factions of rebels in different nations; furthermore, why are we (the United States) doling out substantial amounts of money, food, and other forms of aid when we should be using these entitlements as leverage.
Issue #3 — What is it with the more seasoned legislator’s referred to as the Senate, doing with the outright plagiarism of a bill (please have a look here or, please read the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986.)
Reagan signed the Immigration Reform and Control Act in 1986. The act made it illegal to knowingly hire or recruit illegal immigrants, required employers to attest to their employees’ immigration status, and granted amnesty to approximately three million illegal immigrants who entered the United States prior to January 1, 1982, and had lived in the country continuously.
Critics argue that the employer sanctions were without teeth and failed to stem illegal immigration. Upon signing the act at a ceremony held beside the newly refurbished Statue of Liberty, Reagan said, “The legalization provisions in this act will go far to improve the lives of a class of individuals who now must hide in the shadows, without access to many of the benefits of a free and open society.
Very soon many of these men and women will be able to step into the sunlight and, ultimately, if they choose, they may become Americans.” Reagan also said, “The employer sanctions program is the keystone and major element. It will remove the incentive for illegal immigration by eliminating the job opportunities which draw illegal aliens here.” Nothing is new with the exception of the nation’s Senators being deceptive.
Scandals…what! Accountability Issues
Let’s look at simple accountability; and how it relates to transparency. For the longest period of time we have been writing about accountability on this site so much that it is the biggest “TAG” we have. Where we stand there is more than duty, honor, and trust when it comes down to holding public office in this country.
Anytime that a person – regardless of who they work for – accepts a position of leadership they also are accepting responsibility, liability, culpability, and answerability for issues that may occur in their charter of responsibility.
This is not a new concept. There is a reason why the POTUS carries the title of Commander-in-Chief. Most of all dimensions of government have been set up with accountability added in. Let us never forget the cliché, “That’s why you get the big bucks…”
Therefore knowing that accountability is part of the job what exactly does this mean. According to our dictionary being held accountable means taking the responsibility to somebody or for something. Furthermore, accountability lists the amplitude to explain what it is that has happened and every reason why.
Please join me in making the most heinous, make-shift accountable people, in the world known and let’s ask for some accountability.
We would be shirking in our own responsibilities if we did not at least mention Ann Coulter and what she pronounces in most all of her best-selling books. Just as in the way she describes how liberals will change (or try to change) the subject being debated to something that will better suit their needs and agenda than the original topic.
Let’s just have a look at some specifics using Ms. Coulter’s theory. The left has come up with the illusion of scandals that have been created and nurtured by those on the right. How could this possibly be?
The notion behind a scandal is a situation or event that causes public outrage or censure. Taking this definition just a bit further we find that a scandal is caused by public outrage as a consequence of a particular event. All of these illusions, situations, that cause public outrage as a consequence of an event that ends up being malicious talk; however, we would argue even more so that the malicious talk comes from one of the consequences of abusing a people’s trust.
So then who started all of the Benghazi-gate fiasco in the first place? Well I can assure you it wasn’t anyone from the right who concocted a story about an eight minute video that insulted Islam. Furthermore, I not going to try and make you believe that it was me who believed that the infamous “Talking Points” used by our Ambassador to the United Nations, Ms. Susan Rice, in a mass media situation. Just so you know those “Talking Points” were edited several times by the CIA, FBI, and members in the White House.
Therefore using a line of common sense how much of those talking points were used in the public disgrace offered up by Eric Holder and the Justice Department for gaining access to private information of James Rosen?
And no! Hell no it is not considered piling on when we find out that the nation’s keeper of the money has been targeting not only organizations but individuals as well. This is a matter that caused the resignation of President Nixon.
Now then…back to good old fashioned accountability. Enough of the “I don’t recall, or I don’t know” a la Eric Holder and back to Fast & Furious. Now we have people within the IRS saying the exact same thing albeit they are still being paid and receiving promotions.
There’s no chance President Barack Obama knew nothing of the IRS targeting conservative groups, says political pundit Dick Morris. Why else would IRS Commissioner Douglas Schulman have visited the White House at least once a week?
“The incredible frequency of the White House visits — essentially weekly — indicate that Obama must have been deeply involved with the inner workings of the audits and harassment of conservative groups,” Morris writes on his website, DickMorris.com.
Morris asks what other reason would have brought Schulman to the White House 157 times during the period that groups with “tea party,” “patriot” and other conservative buzzwords in their names were being targeted for extra scrutiny.
As for our staff here at The Contemplative Thinker stand in basic agreement with Mr. Morris.
One has to understand that (1- this is an extraordinary amount of visits to the White House…for any person for any reason. (2- We feel uncomfortable that the POTUS would have this kind of time for anyone or anything. (3-Insofar as Benghazi-gate was an all out effort to deceive the American people and the world, collectively with flying Green Cards being issued at will, we feel that the President intentionally set these actions going so as to shield other attempts at voter fraud and of course, the campaign process.
It is important to note that during that period of time July to November 2012 that the President was spreading a lot of increase tax information just about in any way to disrupt the average American taxpayer.
Interestingly Mr. Morris uses an agency chief scenario “Not ObamaCare. Not without having (Health and Human Services) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius in attendance, you wouldn’t,” Morris says. “About Treasury issues? Deficit reduction? Not without Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner.”
The reason, Morris says, is that Obama was following the IRS actions with an “obsessive, personal involvement.”
The Citizens United ruling galvanized Obama into action, Morris says, and “tapped so deeply into his psyche that he was determined personally to supervise the castration of the wealthy people and groups whose access to the political system was opened wide by the U.S. Supreme Court.”
We believe that this has been the agenda of the Obama White House since. We are not sure that there has ever been another President in history that has colluded so much against wealthy people whilst holding envy toward those who have money. Furthermore, this POTUS has ignored any and all standards of the U.S. Constitution when it has pleased him.
Schulman held a subordinate, non-policy making position, Morris said, so to have seen him 157 times, Obama had to have been “a president on a mission.”
The scandal is not one of a rogue agency, Morris says, but one of a rogue president using the agency for his personal purposes. “This action clearly indicates an instrument of vengeance, or self-defense, and of political influence.”
President Richard Nixon was doomed, Morris says, when the public realized that his own paranoia had infected his entire administration.
“When Chuck Colson led the plumbers unit to investigate leaks and to use the IRS to terrify and intimidate his enemies, we realized that he was operating as Nixon’s man doing Nixon’s bidding based on the needs of Nixon’s psyche,” he writes.
A little noticed provision of the Obama health law is likely to become a big roadblock to immigration reform. Obamacare makes legal immigrants eligible for subsidized private health plans on the exchanges, regardless of how recently they arrived.
The Gang of Eight immigration plan is expected to double the number of legal immigrants coming into the country with permanent visas over the next decade. That would add at least $100 billion to the cost of Obamacare health plan subsidies, depending on how many new arrivals aren’t covered through an employer.
Actually this started off for us by a minute or so public service announcement (PSA) provided by Fox News. The PSA covers a short story of a 50 year old woman who swam across the Rio Grande River from Mexico to Texas and then she’s relocated to the state of Florida.
The individual is now collecting about $240.00 per month in food stamps; lives in government housing, collects a minimum of $700.00 per month from the Social Security Administration; and, her navigator states that she receives some assistance for Medicaid and other incidentals.
So naturally those of us who saw this PSA which after review is a topical advertisement for State Inspired Insurance Exchanges and the new “Navigators” who are placed in charge of illegal immigrants making the transfer from illegal status to legal residents.
We broke this scheme of arrangement down to Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) or the medium in which the entitlement of Food Stamps is funded. (Please read this sections article.)
The Affordable Care Act includes a variety of provisions designed to promote accountability, affordability, quality, and accessibility in the health care system. Yet, that’s not all it does… The Affordable Care Act creates new competitive private health insurance marketplaces – called the Affordable Insurance Exchanges or “Exchanges” – that will provide millions of Americans with opportunities.
Exchanges will help individuals and small employers shop for, select, and enroll in qualified health plans. Exchanges will also assist eligible individuals to receive premium tax credits and cost sharing reductions or help individuals enroll in other Federal and state health care programs such as Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP).
Although through a pinnacle campaign promise – those of a different working man’s Washington, no back room deals, and the campaign was alleged to support the most transparent government in modern history – we ask you have you received transparency or the complete lack thereof with a monstrous executive branch agency targeting conservative and who knows what other industries as in the case of the IRS.
Additionally, we wonder how many of you were aware of the implications of Obamacare during the health reform’s courtship. Section 1311(i) of the Affordable Care Act requires each Exchange to develop and implement Navigator grant programs. This funding opportunity announcement (FOA) is open to eligible entities and self-employed individuals (see Section 1311(i)(2) of the Affordable Care Act) applying to serve consumers in States with an FFE or State Partnership Exchange.
It seems to be getting deeper and deeper into the dung heap…
The Washington Post is confounded by its own poll. Only 18 percent of Americans support the Gang of Eight’s legalization-first approach to illegal immigration, according to a Washington Post/ABC News poll. Yet the Post began its story on the poll with, “Comprehensive immigration reform moves to the Senate floor next week with solid overall support from the public.”
Now hopefully, although doubtful just maybe the Washington Post as well as those 100 elite senators could come to the realization that not only are they sounding extremely stupid but confused as well.
What we find as pathetic is in the notion that one of the nation’s largest and leading newspapers let something so terribly disgusting as a super low percentile factor completely slip through the hands of an editorial staff that many claim has no rivals.
Even more egregious is the reporter had to get it from somewhere – and in this case it was no doubt a member of the Gang of Eight. If we were to look at the congressional approval rating still hovering at a 34 year low, and consider that the members of the Senate and their glorified attitudes of we’ll get it done with blazing speed just slowed down to see what it is the American people want.
Subsequently, that is the problem we are faced with currently. Whilst other agencies of the US government are embarrassing themselves with scandal amid another greater one and still lying about what really happened let’s admit it – from the White House to the Justice Department to the State Department onward to the Internal Revenue Service and wind that up with an Attorney General that can’t keep his fabrications straight on a day-by-day basis.
What we, the American people need to do is to tell these paper-mache blowhards who are allegedly supposed to be representing us – the people – in fact paid by the people to get the cushiest seat for bribing, lying to, or even exhorting members of the various special interest groups.
How does 18 percent translate into “solid overall support”? The Post reporters drew their conclusion based on 58 percent of poll respondents saying they would support “a program giving undocumented immigrants now living in the United States the right to live here legally if they pay a fine and meet other requirements.”
That is even worse! There is clear evidence that reporters should not be involved in surveying or polling in any way – in this case they have responded to an incorrect statement [right to live/remain in the USA legally once fines and fees are met], furthermore, they only cited a little more than half [58 percent] to support a very stupid assertion.
Time for how others feel – this is a great comment that indeed inspired mine as well as over 3600 more at The Washington Post Social Reader comments section:
How ironic that the clueless Washington Post still portrays the immigration bill debate as being between “liberals” and “conservatives”. It’s more like between Washington’s clueless elites and the entire rest of the country that has to do deal with the real world and hard-core concerns about economics and survival, you know, like jobs and wages. That means liberals, conservatives and moderates together. And you wonder why your subscriber base and readership are shrinking so severely?
This corrupt immigration bill would increase non-immigrant guest worker visas so much that American workers, already facing high unemployment, decreased wages and worsening debts from student loans and other factors would be placed in even worse shape. That’s especially the case with the ridiculous H1-B visa which would get massively increased while corporations would have a pass to ignore American workers altogether. That’s also the case with other guest-worker visa types, it’s all about cheap labor. You really think that this is something that liberals or Independents (let alone conservatives) would support?
Maybe wake up one day from your delusional fantasy world, and realize that the 99% of Americans don’t care about the stupid inside-the-Beltway horse races or politicking. They care about jobs and wages above all else, and this arrogant immigration reform bill is an attack on the basic support structures of American communities. Any politicians, of either party, who support this disgusting bill are dooming their political careers and their private careers once they’re ousted, because they will hounded for such an arrogant attack on American workers.
People do support reasonable immigration policies, which the President can accomplish with Executive Action to better enforce the law. But look at the labor force participation rate, the the U-6, the number of Americans in poverty and using food stamps (hint– they’re all records) and maybe you’ll see why Americans oppose this.
That was brought to you by me, compliments of malagasy.
A recent US News & World Report article set out to unveil the “facts” about food stamps.
What are the so-called “facts”?
For one, the article claims that the food stamps program is not “bloated,” but rather, the surge in participation and spending is a result of the program “doing what it’s supposed to do.”
But what is it “supposed to do”?
Food stamps (or the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), as it is now called) were designed to ensure that Americans without the ability to provide for themselves are able to receive basic nutrition. However, application loopholes and policy changes over the past decade or so have allowed recipients to bypass income and asset tests, meaning many people are receiving food stamps that would not have been eligible under the program’s original purposes.
Sound familiar to anyone? Let’s try this one on. During the late 1980s through the 1990s and just about through the first decade of 2000 people were held to fewer circumstances (income and asset tests) that those receiving food stamps today, albeit working with banks on home ownership.
We really don’t care what it is called meaning a recession or the housing bubble exploded. We don’t like to muddy the waters – orders given by politicians to bankers, investment bankers, and those given over to securities transactions – to literally lower the standards when purchasing a home is just plain wrong.
It seems very real and very possible that humankind will go for anything that’s not bolted down. Food stamps, housing, and other entitlements are definitely included. This blatant disrespect for one that uses these hand-outs (for those not needing them) is surely making its way into some kind of culture. One specific culture that we would prefer not to be aligned with.
One of the changes in eligibility requirements is “broad-based categorical eligibility.” This type of eligibility means that an individual who receives any service under another welfare program, such as Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF)—even something as small as a TANF brochure—can be deemed eligible for food stamps. A full 50 percent of all food stamp recipients now enroll in the program through this broad-based categorical eligibility procedure.
In addition, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has operated substantial outreach programs to pull more people onto the food stamp rolls. Some states have gone so far as to hire food stamp recruiters, tasked with filling a monthly quota of new food stamp enrollees.
What’s more, food stamps are just one of roughly 80 federally funded means-tested welfare programs. The total cost of government welfare spending has been on a nearly continual climb over the past five decades and has increased 16-fold, to nearly $1 trillion annually, since the 1960s. Welfare is the fastest growing part of government spending, and under Obama’s fiscal year 2013 budget, total welfare spending will permanently increase from 4.5 percent of gross domestic product (GDP) to 6 percent of GDP.
In addition it should be noted “as a fact” that those receiving food stamps are those who work. However, a significant portion of able-bodied recipients of food stamps perform little to no work. Of the roughly 10.5 million households receiving food stamps containing an able-bodied, non-elderly adult (there are approximately 20 million households receiving food stamps total), more than half—5.5 million—performed no work during a given month in 2010. Another 1.5 million to 2 million performed fewer than 30 hours of work per week. This isn’t unique to the recession, but is typical even during good economic times.
Programs like food stamps should be reformed to promote self-reliance through work, empowering individuals and families to become free from government dependence.
Other topics that we are raring at the bit to get too is one the U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder; however it does take time sifting through all of his lies.
The other one we wanted to get to today….(time permitting) is the lifting of the arms embargo so that the Syrian opposition rebels can put together an overwhelming offensive on the current regime.
The Alabama Republican offered 17 amendments, championed the concerns of border-enforcement employee unions, and decried the cost to taxpayers. Ahead of a Senate Judiciary Committee vote, Sessions produced a letter denouncing the proposal signed by opinion makers such as Laura Ingraham.
There was an additional name mentioned in Senator Sessions’ letter and after careful reasoning I have decided to place it in this writing. It is Michelle Malkin who was included as being an opinion maker. And justifiably so – not only did Ms. Malkin produce in advance of every other person a best-selling warning Americans about Obama’s Culture of Corruption. Even more important is Ms. Malkin’s plethora of knowledge of America’s complete immigration status including the original Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS).
It is not just that Ms. Malkin is knowledgeable about immigration affairs – she has also written one could only presume was a best-seller titled, Invasion: How America Still Welcomes Terrorists, Criminals, and Other Foreign Menaces to Our Shores. Copy written in 2002 Malkin leaves not bush, rock, even a pebble unturned.
With all due respect to Senator Jeff Sessions rather than put the hex on those experts who certainly could hold their own at any Senate Judiciary Committee meeting seems to me that those arrogant Senators should be enlisting the help of any and all experts they can find.
In fact when are these quasi-leaders going to understand what’s at stake here? An aptly named old fogies list of Senators, “The Gang of Eight” bills themselves out at nothing other than bipartisan politics hence the name – four Democrats and four Republicans that are as reliable and viable as Senator Leahy’s statement, “I intend to proceed to comprehensive immigration reform with all deliberate speed.”
Far be it from me but isn’t Leahy actually saying no compromises, no public opinion, I will in all due haste go out deliberately with speed and little input from the other 330 million or so Americans. And serve those special interest groups such as La Raza, MALDEF, and any number of advocacy groups that want open borders and folks walking in and out of what used to be considered a sovereign country.
Senate supporters of immigration reform think they emerged from the judiciary panel’s hearings in a strong position, adopting key amendments to help mitigate criticisms. In 2007, when a bipartisan group offered a bill, Senate leaders avoided the committee process and took the legislation directly to the floor, where opponents quickly fractured the coalition with “poison pill” amendments.
The committee vote was only the first skirmish in a long battle ahead for a bill that represents the most sweeping overhaul of immigration law in nearly three decades, its prospects buoyed in part by Republican worries over a lack of Latino support.
I can’t help but believe in my heart of hearts that what the Senate is trying to do is to make up for over three decades of doing absolutely nothing concerning immigration reform. And as far as Republican worries over a lack of Latino support, just shows their mutual arrogance by not giving Hispanics/Latino’s credit for what they know.
I will share this with you, my dedicated readers, Hispanics/Latino’s know about systemic politics. They know that they are getting free Obamacare, which it is going to cost the US taxpayers in excess of $6.5 Trillion dollars, as well as all of the accumulated entitlement costs.
The goal, in many cases, was not necessarily to alter the legislation but rather to force the four Gang of Eight members on the committee — Democrats Charles E. Schumer (N.Y.) and Richard J. Durbin (Ill.) and Republicans Lindsey O. Graham (S.C.) and Jeff Flake (Ariz.) — into difficult votes on issues where Democrats and Republicans are ideologically opposed.
Interesting to come up with the figures, yet how many of you believed that the Presidency of Barack H. Obama would have the kind of investigations, scandals, and other ugly rubbish going on within the Obama administration.
Now if you don’t mind just because it’s Friday and all of us do have some issues we’d like, or better still, be honored to discuss with you. First this President and the sobering affects he literally used to swindle the swindler’s. Second, how about an expose on voting? And taking the more realistic turn, third let’s take a look at the NAACP.
Can we come to a consensus about how Barack Obama used those who’s who of Hollywood to either be linked-up with the Fabricator-of-Filth or dare I say, used for their mutually gained “I’m cool and so are you” belongingness.
I remember as though it was yesterday the weeks that were for photo opts only and then who would come to their Facebook page and actually support the bull squat not only what he’d already done…nah, these opts were for do me twice – Obama Two.
I literally thought some of my quasi-acquaintances, quasi-celeb-friends, and some of the “Elites” would never have stood to do what they did and glowingly autographed the photographs with each one either in the East Room, or lounging a bit in the Blue Room, or trying to be cool somewhere near the South Portico. How do they each feel now?
Iranian authorities on Tuesday announced the approval of eight candidates who will be allowed to compete in the June 14 presidential election. The Guardian Council, which vetted the candidates, made sure that Iran’s next president will be a pliable servant of the Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.
Six of the eight remaining presidential candidates are closely linked to the Supreme Leader. The frontrunner appears to be Saeed Jalili, a longtime adviser to Khamenei who now serves as Iran’s negotiator on the nuclear issue. Jalili is an uncompromising revolutionary who lost a leg in the Iran–Iraq war. A western diplomat noted that Jalili “specializes in monologue”—not dialogue.
Other prominent hard-line candidates include Tehran Mayor Mohammad Qalibaf, former Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Velayati, and former Revolutionary Guard commander Mohsen Rezai.
Two centrists were also allowed to run: Hassan Rowhani, an ally of Rafsanjani, and Mohammad Reza Aref, who served as vice president under former President Mohammad Khatami. Both of them will be sure to mute their criticism of the hard-line establishment candidates. After all, Mir Hossain Mousavi and Mehdi Karoubi, reformist candidates who protested the 2009 rigged elections, are still under house arrest.
The election will have little impact on the issues that Washington is most concerned about: Iran’s nuclear program, terrorism, and hostile foreign policy. All of these policies are set by the Supreme Leader, who has the final say on all important issues in Iran.
Khamenei also controls the election process, as has been made clear once again this week. Six of the eight presidential contenders are closely associated with him. Iran’s next president will be determined far more by his selection than through a genuine election.
Have you ever wondered what others’ may be saying about our archaic elections.
Remember when the Congressional Black Caucus was all over the Republicans “suppressing” the minority vote? Looks like they were the guilty party! So when Obama brought in the UN to “monitor” our elections, you know what they took away from it.
They found no suppression at all, BUT they were shocked by the fact that there was no VOTER ID and questioned how the election could be fair. Go figure. A little side note; Soros just dropped another million on the NAACP to gear up for 2014. Someone, anyone, whomever…what is not discriminatory about a Black Caucus.
38% of Likely U.S. Voters think it’s at least somewhat likely that the House and Senate will present to the POTUS
38% of Likely U.S. Voters think it’s at least somewhat likely that the House and Senate will present to the POTUS
Voters aren’t overly optimistic that Congress will pass an overhaul of the nation’s immigration laws this year. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 38% of Likely U.S. Voters think it’s at least somewhat likely that the House and Senate will pass comprehensive immigration reform legislation and it will be signed into law by President Obama this year.
But 52% consider that unlikely. This includes just eight percent (8%) who say major immigration reform is Very Likely this year and 15% who say it’s Not At All Likely. Ten percent (10%) are not sure. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
The survey of 1,000 Likely Voters was conducted on May 5-6, 2013 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Field work for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, LLC.
It still gets worse with only 30% Think Government Likely to Secure Border If Reform Bill Passes
Support for a comprehensive immigration reform plan has fallen slightly, as more voters than ever question the willingness of the federal government to control the nation’s borders. The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 55% of Likely U.S. Voters still favor the plans that would give legal status to those here now illegally who have otherwise obeyed the law as long as the government really secures the border to prevent future illegal immigration. Thirty percent (30%) oppose the plan even with the guarantee of tougher border security. Fifteen percent (15%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

Now let’s be Real Clear on one single issue…
Far be it from us, seriously we’ve only been like blood-hounds sorting and sniffing out the scent of blood through the ruble that resembles Ground Zero for roughly 20 years now. Additionally we think it’s reasonably fair to suggest an option to all those concerned. Unlike President Barack Obama who is like a jellyfish, spinelessly relying on those who will align themselves with him in a culture of corruption to get anything done. Therefore, Obama will scour and interpret the U.S. Constitution ad nauseam to find a way. So what if he cannot find any support? Then he’ll just concoct an executive order (which by the way is illegal in his realm of doing things) to get what he wants done.
However, all things being equal, let’s look at what should be done. First and foremost all individuals who are in the nation undocumented, seeking sanctuary cities, and who remain here illegally should be given the ultimatum with assurances of course, to leave the country for a minimum of six months or until we can put together a real reform package.
It’s time to face it gang…nothing resembling real reform will ever happen as long as 19 million illegals remain here to argue, sway, and hold America hostage. Albeit voting or party affiliation what the Democrat Party now has is the majority of ACORN as well as SEIU endorsing them.
To effectuate real change – a change that we all can be proud of it is essential that we all do our part. And without any further adieu those who are in the U.S. illegally should be asked to leave on their terms or face a semblance of internment camps.
We understand that this sounds harsh and cruel but in the real world – or used to be the real world, the reason why America holds dreams for people, truth, justice, and the American way is because once upon a time America with its citizenry and a few politicians were called to order daily by the rule of law.
What Barack Obama does not understand whatsoever is the notion that to have”perceived power” the constructs of such are observed order and justice must be established and preserved.
Think of order as a traffic signal; when all parties do as they are supposed to then there is order on the roads. However, when someone alludes and therefore jumps in order then without reprisal or discipline someone is losing justice to live as freely as the person who thought otherwise when they ran the red light.
So therefore, in order to continue on with the American Way with all the bells and trinkets that go along with that dream – America must return to its rule of law to maintain order and justice.
Immediately after Speaker Boehner released his ‘Progress Report’ on Benghazi, another 13 Republicans bolted from House Leaders to cosponsor the Benghazi Committee.
If that isn’t an embarrassing ‘Vote of No Confidence’, I don’t know what is! What’s worse, Boehner’s ‘Progress Report’ dismissed in one slim paragraph the most egregious question underlying ‘Benghazi-Gate.’
We cannot be certain however the stance, position, and overall effectiveness of Speaker Boehner – as far as leadership is concerned – is definitely lacking if asserted at all.
America’s Question: Who ordered the military to deny help to four fellow Americans – then abandoned those men to slaughter at the hands of wicked, bloodthirsty Radicalized Islamic terrorists? Who gave the order? There are a multitude of issues that went wrong during the siege on our Embassy.
We believe that the American public has a right to know what happened, why it happened, and at whose watch it occurred on. It absolutely makes this writer and our staff sick to Kingdom come when we hear “The 3am Phone Call” that was played during Hillary Clinton’s campaign for president.
The ongoing events ex post facto or after the fact to this day make us simmering with anger over untold truths and the notion of fabrications; however, in lieu of all of this rubbish President Obama, still hasn’t taken one bit of accountability for this insane act of Islamic radicalism.
