Imbued with a growing sense of entitlement to amnesty, illegal aliens and their supporters have become increasingly aggressive in pressing their demands. Among their new tactics is outright intimidation of public officials.
So as we continue to listen to politicians, especially our POTUS, espousing how important it is for these individuals learn to live outside of the shadows and become known our question remains – how long is this ridiculous posturing going to continue. Are they really that dumb, that is, the politicians.
Earlier this year, a group of illegal aliens turned up at the home of Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, sending a not-so-subtle message, “We know where you and your kids live.” On Wednesday evening it was House Majority Leader Eric Cantor’s turn. Some 60 illegal aliens and their supporters forced their way into the lobby of Cantor’s suburban D.C. condo to hold a loud protest clearly aimed at intimidating him.
Not being one to constantly be barking “what about the rule of law” it seems to me that the statement “We know where you and your kids live” could be construed as a threat. The following video shows just how bat sh*t some people can become.

The Credibility Gap: Another Reason…
The erudite and ever-quotable late Senator from New York, Daniel Patrick Moynihan, famously said, “Everyone is entitled to his own opinion, but not his own facts.”
Apparently, Sen. Moynihan was wrong. According to media reports, employees at the U.S. Census Bureau fabricated employment data to make it appear that unemployment was declining dramatically on the eve of the 2012 presidential election. The New York Post names a specific Census Bureau employee, Julius Buckmon, who cooked the books, adding, “a knowledgeable source says the deception went beyond that one employee.”
The official monthly unemployment numbers are determined by Census Bureau interviews with some 60,000 U.S. households. Allegedly, Buckmon, who worked for the Bureau’s Philadelphia office, created people out of thin air and reported them as being employed. In compiling the monthly employment reports, Buckmon “interviewed” three times as many households as his peers.
Buckmon’s credibility is obviously in doubt, but he claims that he was told to fabricate data by his superiors. Whether the falsification was carried out to improve President Obama’s chances for reelection, or they were carried out because the Philadelphia office was having trouble meeting the requirement that they reach 90 percent of the households on their call list, is not clear.
What is clear is that the American public must be very skeptical about government data. This is an especially sobering thought as discussion of a mass amnesty remains before Congress. The bill passed by the Senate, in theory, relies on a government agency – the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) – certifying that border and other immigration enforcement triggers be met before amnestied aliens can receive green cards.
House Speaker John A. Boehner says his party is hopeful that progress can be made on immigration reform, but believes that implementing change should be addressed “one step at a time.”
“I’m hopeful we can make progress on this very important issue,” he added, according to The Washington Post.
“The only way to make sure immigration reform works this time is to address these complicated issues one step at a time. I think doing so will give the American people confidence that we’re dealing with these issues in a thoughtful way and a deliberative way,” said Boehner.
Boehner said he was encouraged by the President, that he was open to reform changes being implemented in a gradual fashion. While he wouldn’t put a timeline on these changes, he insisted that immigration reform is still alive.
“Is immigration reform dead? Absolutely not,” he said, according to the LA Times.
The main bone of contention is the provision in the Senate-approved bill to allow illegal immigrants follow a path to U.S. citizenship, something the GOP-controlled House is against.
The Senate bill does not say what President Obama thinks it says. Now I really truly and honestly hope that he has been given some misinformation prior to his speaking, or else it would be natural and very normal for one to infer someone is not being honest.
As for us, the entire matter of the Gang of Eight’s cum Senate bill is just a tad worse off than the original “Obamacare” travesty. During a very recent press conference Obama stated:
[W]e do have to deal with about 11 million folks who are in this country, most of them just seeking opportunity; they did break the law by coming here or overstaying their visa, and they’ve got to earn their way out of the shadows — pay a fine, learn English, get to the back of the line, pay their back taxes — but giving them a mechanism whereby they can get right by our society. And that is reflected in the Senate bill.
Somewhere in the White House, someone must have realized that Obama’s statement is not true.
The Senate bill does not make learning English a prerequisite for legalization. The Senate bill grants the Secretary of Homeland Security the discretion to wave fines for broad groups of illegal aliens. The Senate bill does not require back taxes of illegal aliens who never filed tax returns.
Jon Feere covered these myths in an op-ed for the Christian Science Monitor on May 13 earlier this year. The Washington Times wrote a story on the “back taxes” claim on May 21 in which it was noted that the “immigration bill’s authors acknowledged Tuesday that their legislation does not require illegal immigrants to pay all back taxes, saying it would be too difficult to make them ante up everything they might owe.”
President Obama’s language is not reflected in the Senate bill, but he has probably read similar language in immigration polling. Most polls that find support for a “path to citizenship” use language just as Obama did. One of the problems with those polls is that, like Obama’s statement, they do not describe the actual legislation that Congress is considering.
This is not the first indication that President Obama has not been fully briefed on the Senate bill. On October 24th, Obama remarked, “If there’s a good reason not to pass this common-sense reform, I haven’t
Well with the greatest of respect for the Office of the President just like Obamacare, Benghazi, Iran negotiations, and scandals within the highest echelons of government – don’t you think it’s time we had a POTUS that at least seemed more aware of the issues rather than simply going out and saying whatever?
Four months earlier, the Congressional Budget Office released a report on the economic impact of the Senate bill that predicted a decade of depressed wages and increased unemployment.
It is too bad that we live in a time and in a nation that has people gripping all the time albeit for whatever reasons seem endless. We, I, and you can try your level best to avoid it, walk past it, remain neutral on it, or as so many of our friends do – try not to fall into the dreadful trap of the color of one’s skin.
As for us, we believe the motives for engaging in blatant racism are as mixed as a bag of M&M’s. Then mind you something opposite would suggest that boil it all down to one single issue and what do we come up with? Hate, entitlements, capitalism, positions, or offices held, rank ordering, caste system, or any other sorts of one issue (never works).
Let us take a look at human person living in the U.S.A. today. Is it important that we address the notion or importance of the two parent household particularly a man and a woman living as husband and wife? Statistically it is ugly – something along the percentile of 90 percent of child delinquency and misbehaving comes because there is not a male (“Father figure”…Freud) present to what?
Now the time is at hand to ask all of the special interests groups and advocacy groups how they feel about the work that they do. Moreover, the money they are spending in their attempt at taking on God, most orthodox religious beliefs, and one particular society in which they live who are overwhelmingly against same-sex marriage and who remain the majority.
Failure to respect people of other races and a way of behaving or thinking that shows that you do not like or respect people who belong to races that are different from your own and that you believe your race is better than others are just does not work.
Furthermore, having animosity toward other races cannot be an excuse simply because races are made up of human beings, ergo why not say – because Jeffery Dalmer was white, let us hate all white people based on the crimes the lone nut committed. Additionally, the belief that people of different races have different qualities and abilities, and that some races are inherently superior or inferior than other races has more generalized research disputing such that a person could spend a life time in paperwork studying that idea.
Yet we do believe that this qualified information is not known well enough or even known by people who hold prominence in various fields whether in entertainment, sports, academia, or theology.
Basically we are of the position that age-old stereotyping has been going on for so long that it is unfortunately being sought as truth rather than the stereotypical and discriminating hilarity it sometimes causes.
From the “White” perspective it is believed that the Wayans brothers have been culprits of stereotyping; albeit not in a racist way but one of a variety of ways in that the outcome makes a person look at themselves. Is this a good medium in film or Hollywood? It is a rather sorted question because if one were to say yes – it is a good medium – be very careful because you may be construed as a racist.
One trait that the Wayans brothers share and have a clear inroads path to is that of crossing or applying cross stereotypes within race. Many could argue that their films are hard on blacks, gays, and women; however, there is always the side of whites, gays, women, and just about any other way one could think of it. The Wayans have the insight of knowing how to keep it fair and even keeled.
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?
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.
Disney, American Airlines, McDonald’s, Olive Garden, Red Lobster, Coca-Cola, T-Mobile, UPS, and many more…Posted: November 5, 2013
If for any reason whatsoever you may be sitting there wondering if anybody learned anything from this recent obstacle called ObamaCare or the Affordable Care Act (ACA), well then you just may be in luck with this concurrent news involving some 104 companies demanding legislation supporting that monstrosity of a bill proffered by the Senate. We encourage you, moreover implore you to read the full data statistics before making any decision. That is right folks the corruption of America continues.
McDonald’s might be adding a new item to their value meal: Amnesty.
The company was among the 104 co-signers of a letter addressed to Rep. John Boehner (R-Ohio) and Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) advocating for the legalization of 11 million undocumented residents through new visa programs. You may be wondering why places like McDonald’s and the Cheesecake Factory are lobbying for immigration reform in this manner. While they have stated that they wanted to “bolster the availability of a workforce at all skill levels,” that is likely not the only reason.
[W]e strongly support efforts to bolster the availability of a workforce at all skills levels, through a separate visa program as well as by creating a path to legal status for those already here.
The Center for Immigration Studies points out that this letter cited a recent Congressional Budget Office (CBO) report that stated the immigration reform would bolster the economy. This means that these corporate giants are channeling their moral compass and bettering our country, right. That sounds too good to be true.
When citing the CBO report, the letter left out a key part of the CBO estimate that may hint at an ulterior motive. The CBO stated that if the Senate bill passed, the surge in new immigrants would bring down the average wage of American workers. Does this correlate into an influx of cheaper labor for places like McDonald’s? Maybe. At any stretch of the imagination, it is easy to see the incentive in not having to pay workers as much.
Given the recent strikes and disputes regarding minimum wage, one would think that McDonald’s would want to fix their problems with their workers. Fair wages are something that McDonald’s has notoriously opposed. They cannot even provide their workers with adequate wages to support their families.
It’s no secret that McDonald’s could raise their workers’ wages. If McDonald’s doubled their employees’ pay, the cost of Big Macs would go up a mere 68 cents. Maybe raising the Big Mac’s price is not the answer, but the answer certainly does not lie in lobbying for an immigration reform initiative that could potentially lower wages even further.
McDonald’s has spent over $1.5 million on lobbying this year, some of which has gone toward immigration reform. That $1.5 million would be better spent investing in the workers who are responsible for their obscene profits.

Is this the most “UNAWARE” organization, administration, or collective entity that you have ever seen trying to make anything unscrupulous, scrupulous? We simply cannot hold back any more; what we are about to divulge easily proves that the Obama administration is without question beyond being unaware.
Okay so most people want to know about what I mean with unaware. Being unaware is a condition of not being conscious or uninformed of the situations with which one is definitely involved in. Being unaware exasperates when that person and those under his charter are not knowledgeable or fully aware of all of the information needed to make an accurate assessment.
Finally for definitions sake, for a person to be unaware is “not realizing that something is happening.” Or even worse, pretending to be unacquainted with what is happening – especially when it is under your direction or care.
Bringing up excuses from an already antiquated President Bush’s administration will only go long enough before the reality sets in and shows the true colors of individuals. And it is within those parameters we ask you whether or not this person, Barack Obama, should remain as the POTUS and whether or not many of his cronies should be maintained on the job.
Allow us to show just how ridiculous this “unawareness” has become.
How is it that a person in charge of local and international spy agencies be unaware that those agencies are maintaining data on:
Foreign leaders and Heads-of-State as well as trade partners and enemies of commerce have been victims. An entire nation of people such as the citizens of the United States. Every ally and close war partner your nation has ever had such as the United Kingdom, almost all of central Europe – Germany, France, Spain, and selective information concerning the Baltic countries; China, Russia, nations comprising the Middle East, South America and Central America and of course, not wanting to admit it but have too – Canada.
Being quoted as saying that one is unaware of domestic or international spying, especially when one is Commander-in-Chief is simply nothing shy of unconscionable. Most say it is dereliction of duty; which is an impeachable offense, but what does that charge do to the ridiculous notion of political correctness?
Like it or not this unaware person who was ushered in as President just happens to be African American. Now before getting all riled up at me – let us all be AWARE and look to evaluate what he has done to the other blacks that have political aspirations? This alone brings me to my next point. Is the unawareness by this man and his underlings a planned strategy or just plain arrogance?
This is the very question that we have had since his shady election inclusive of ACORN and big unions. Take a moment and just look at what this person has been or claimed he has been unaware of happening.
Now for Obama’s arrogance and pathological fabricating: This Affordable Care Act (Obamacare, Nat’l healthcare insurance) is just plain getting embarrassing not to mention humiliating. I would love to ask Barack Obama, “Hey Barack, have I ever done anything to embarrass you or yours?
My only discourse at this current time would be, “Man you are stinking up the world! As POTUS you must realize that what you do establishes a reaction toward us. Tone it down.”
Time to ask ourselves a few important questions. One, are we aware of the substantial changes that have happened to the American society? How well do you like them? I am going to try to keep this as clear and coherent as possible – you deserve that much.
We will get back to the to the reckless, negligent, and disregard for the American will, but first we need to identify some very humiliating standards we, as the American people, have allowed ourselves and welcome into the sorcery pit that goes by so many names.
First let us look at what we say to our children versus what we actually did concerning education. How many times we have heard, “Man, back in the day that I went to school we got a paddling for that kind of behavior…” Right! I am convinced that unless someone is over 70-years of age they are not telling their own truths. But then again – no argument from this side of the room.
We tell our children that they need a good education in life in order for them to succeed. Of course they are going to need a lot of money when it comes time for them to become political, business, entertainment/sports professionals.
How many other fabrications – or lies have we told these darling children? Truth be told if a person’s sole motivation for attending college is to make more money, well then statistically speaking, save your money and theirs because the latest data shows that those who enter collegiate life for the sake of money won’t last long and will have quit perhaps we know about it. It is a myth that we all bought into; now then if there are any other factors that may be influencing you child’s collegiate aspirations.
Education – here are some not oft told truths about America’s universities. To get back to your question about the origins and founding, here this is where the colleges were actually doing the local work they were founded to do. Baptists in Rhode Island established the College of Rhode Island (now Brown University) in order to supply an orthodox and well-trained ministry for themselves. It is also a fact that almost every Ivy League university received its founding and funding from religious entities.
Dartmouth has an extraordinary Native American studies program – that Dartmouth had Native American students on its campus for two hundred years before the 1830s and 1840s. So the barrier was not just race.
The mission of the earliest colleges — specifically Harvard, the College of William and Mary, and Yale – was actually to supply ministers, for two purposes: to supply religious leaders for the primarily British and to lesser extent European population in the colonies, but also to minister to the neighboring native nations.
It is overwhelming important that we look into education, which some of the greatest assets were and their beliefs in the future of humankind was directly channeled through education. Yes indeed, when we refer to education on this site we are really addressing how humans came to depend on each other; how communities developed and were maintained; actually education involves the complete acculturation of man’s abilities in learning, knowledge, and according to Aristotle the rationalization of society. We start early during perhaps the greatest influence of Greek philosophy making its trek into Western civilization.
Leadership – interesting word and throughout the history of humankind – leadership has been the undoing of anything and everything conceivable to human minds. Good or bad, excellent and worthy of praise wherever there is one or more people going about living and working socially together there will always be that one or more people who want to take the lead.
Far be it from me but in the absence of any real leadership and by that I definitely mean the ability to guide, direct, or influence people properly without the “leaders’” wanton lust getting directly involved. Furthermore when addressing leadership I believe we can also include guidance and direction set by the examples that this nation’s leadership is theoretically one that looks to control other people regardless of the truth, justice, or American way.
Therefore we have no difficulty with naming names, events, or otherwise that has occurred on whoever’s watch. How members of the Democratic Party could be doing almost everything recklessly and without remorse in order to get Hillary Rodham Clinton elected as the next president for us is just unconscionable. This person is so far into the bowels or entrails of the worst things that could ever happen to the U.S.A. are wrong.
Anyway just a thought before diving in toward our planned last installment(s) of just how our elected officials are stealing from us on an hourly basis. Simply calling in the markers that the IRS has “I did not do it…” mismanagement of taxpayer funds alone we have addressed nearly $200 -$300 billion.
And I intentionally left the schemes of “clean energy” out of the mix for a couple of reasons. One, we believe that internal combustion engines and the use of fossil fuels are extremely limited at this time. Two, we believe in the concept of clean energy; albeit, not some product that one very limited individual is going – very unprepared – and then squander an additional one half billion dollars.
On the heels of “Tax Day,” 24 Internal Revenue Service (IRS) employees have been charged with stealing hundreds of thousands of dollars in government benefits, including food stamps, welfare and housing vouchers.
The story comes out of Tennessee, where federal prosecutors announced this month that the scheme fleeced U.S. taxpayers out of at least a quarter of a million dollars in government benefits. The corrupt IRS employees did it by making false statements to fraudulently obtain the benefits, which also included unemployment insurance.
No! I know it is not me! What in the devil’s name are our “leadership” involved with knowing that billions of dollars in fraudulent kick backs for electric cars, fraudulent and unscrupulous housing schemes, with (criminal) inmates filing for income on what? Illegal aliens incarcerated and being paid top dollar for what – nothing!
Heck, why do not we all just move over there where the grass is greener and the money never stops flowing; but wait on a minute – how are we, the American public, supposed to say anything about these improprieties? That is of course if one is telling the truth, describing the perpetrator – get my drift here – if we are supposed to be this huge global conglomeration then all of the fictitious stereotypes can’t really exist in reality.
We did have some reflection time after our staff meeting today and we read Ann Coulter’s notion of: We’re in a fight to the death over the country! Are you people awake? Have you heard of this great new thing called Obamacare? We have to win elections! We can worry about “the soul of the party” when we have big, veto-proof majorities in the Senate and House.
Coulter directs her ire at Republicans who support amnesty, such as Sens. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., John McCain, R-Ariz., Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., and Reps. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., Eric Cantor, R-Va., and Bob Goodlatte, R-Va.
It is a Matter of Common Sense NOT too…
Weeks after a government audit revealed that the Internal Revenue Service doled out $33 million in fraudulent electric-car tax credits, a separate probe says the agency paid out over half a billion dollars to “homebuyers” who did not qualify. When one examines data analysis, hard numbers, and the eyewitnesses at the banks and other institutions, is this type of leadership that caused the first federal stimulus?
It’s simply the latest of many blunders for the perpetually troubled government agency that’s awarded prison inmates tens of millions of dollars in bogus tax refunds in the past decade. Last year alone, more than a quarter of a million prisoners filed tax returns with the IRS and nearly 50,000 claimed more than $130 million in refunds without bothering to report wage information, according to the Treasury Inspector General.
Last month the Treasury IG, the IRS’s watchdog, found that the Obama Administration’s aggressive push to reward consumers who buy costly “advanced-technology” vehicles resulted in rampant corruption because claims were automatically granted without scrutiny. In many cases the lucrative tax credit—worth up to $7,500—was awarded to gas-guzzling sports utility vehicles and even a bicycle.
Some people got multiple tax cuts for the same vehicle and dozens of prisoners received nearly $50,000 in alternative vehicle credits even though they were behind bars. This month’s audit du jour says the IRS has dished out more than $513 million in credits to unscrupulous filers who claimed first-time homebuyer exemptions of up to $8,000 as part of Obama’s disastrous stimulus plan.
A chunk of the money—about $326 million—went to nearly 50,000 people who already owned a home, the Treasury IG found. Nearly $8 million in credits went to more than 1,000 prison inmates and about $98 million to 13,400 taxpayers who never even bought homes.
Even some IRS employees who did not qualify for the first-time homebuyer refund received it. In its report, the Treasury IG makes a rather simple suggestion that is perhaps too common sense for the IRS; require taxpayers to provide documentation to support eligibility for all refundable tax credits. Here’s another good recommendation from the agency’s watchdog; that the IRS deny refundable credits when supporting documentation is not provided.
“Believing that they won the recent shutdown fight, President Obama and the Democrats think they have momentum to browbeat the House into passing some version of the Schumer-Rubio amnesty that was approved by the Senate in June,” says Mark Krikorian in National Review.
“Representative Paul Ryan has been actively working to help the president achieve his chief goal for the second term. Many conservatives fear that Speaker Boehner and the rest of the House GOP leadership share Ryan’s desire to pass a bill that would legalize the present 11 million–plus illegal aliens and double future legal immigration.”
First of all that “option” is pathetic. That Trojan-horse legislation is H.R. 1417, the Border Security Results Act of 2013, authored by Representative Mike McCaul (R., Texas), chairman of the committee. But the first sign of trouble comes when you note one name on the list of the bill’s original co-sponsors: Representative Sheila Jackson Lee (D., Texas), a vice chairman of the Congressional Progressive Caucus.”
We are admittedly aware that Ms. Jackson Lee does not need an introduction to this writing. All one really needs to do is think of the 2001 World Conference on Racism in South Africa whereby the “Honorable Sheila Jackson Lee” a Democrat, created a substantial raucous near disaster in that nation. On April 28, 2006, Jackson Lee, along with four other members of Congress and six other activists, was arrested for disorderly conduct in front of Sudan’s embassy in Washington. They were protesting the role of Sudan’s government in ethnic cleansing in Darfur.
