We Can Deport 11 Million Illegal Aliens

Originally posted on Socialism is not the Answer:

illegals deport send home alienaFamily Security Matters

The Obama Administration, Jeb Bush, John McCain, Lindsay Graham and the media’s take on why Congress needs to enact “comprehensive immigration reform” is that it’s impossible to deport the 11 million plus illegal aliens here, or as the president calls them, “Americans in waiting.”

Of course, it’s possible. The notion that this country can’t find these people is simply ridiculous. Here’s why.

According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics, there are over 461,000 local, county, and State law enforcement officers in the country. There are also about 120,000 federal law enforcement agents. If Congress gave state and local police officers the authority to enforce federal immigration laws, most of the 11 million illegal aliens could be identified and deported in about a year. Let’s do the math.

The End of the Charade

Well Mr. Speaker the charade is over. Obama has received just what he wanted and you and Mitch helped him. You can both now get back in line, knee pads in hand, ready to kiss the bony rear of your leader and ask, “What do you want next, Sire?”

A real man once called some of our foes the, “Axis of Evil.” Well I see another axis right here in what is left of America. Between you and McConnell and Obama you are destroying the America you grew up in and it apparently isn’t going to stop. A more ineffective Congress hasn’t been seen in my lifetime (I am 79). Committee meeting after committee and no one has resolved one thing yet, IN SIX YEARS!

The House, led by what has turned out to be led by one of the most two-faced people in Washington, has just turned…

Eric Holder’s DOJ finds officer Darren Wilson innocent in Michael Brown shooting

Originally posted on Wintery Knight:

Ferguson protesters shut down highway Ferguson protesters shut down highway

Normally, I would not post on this, but I think I must because of the way that the mainstream media and the culture as a whole swallowed a narrative that bashes police officers, and by extension the rule of law, and even the responsibility that criminals bear for their own actions.

Hot Air introduces the Department of Justice’s findings:

The DOJ — Eric Holder’s DOJ — is clear as can be that it thinks Wilson was justified in shooting Michael Brown.

[…][The DOJ report] was a considered argument that not only is Wilson not guilty of a federal civil rights charge, he’s not guilty of a criminal offense of any sort. Had Wilson gone to trial, he could have submitted this as his motion to dismiss and the court might well have torpedoed the indictment before opening arguments.

Appeasement As Narcissism

Originally posted on THAT'S WHAT I'M SCREAMING:

By Victor Davis Hanson

Members of the Obama administration have insisted that the Taliban are not terrorists. Those responsible for the recent Paris killings are not radical Islamists. The Muslim Brotherhood is largely secular. Jihad is a “legitimate tenet of Islam.” And “violent extremism,” “workplace violence” or “man-caused disaster” better describe radical Islamic terrorism. Domestic terrorism is just as likely caused by returning U.S. combat veterans, according to one report by a federal agency.

What is the point of such linguistic appeasement?

The word “appeasement” long ago became pejorative for giving in to bullies. One side was aggressive and undemocratic; the other consensual and eager to avoid trouble through supposedly reasonable concessions.

But appeasement usually weakened the democratic side and empowered the extremist one.

The architect of appeasement — for example, Neville Chamberlain, former prime minister of Great Britain — was predictably a narcissist. Chamberlain believed that his own powers…

“Stunning”: Media rips Hillary Clinton over email scandal

Originally posted on Nice Deb:

This Washington Free Beacon “supercut” highlights the media firestorm over Hillary Clinton’s shady email practices whilst Sec. of State.

Unlike most other Obama-era scandals – EVERYONE is talking about it.

I put “stunning” in sneer-quotes because this is not stunning at all. The liberal media do not want another Clinton in the White House, PERIOD –  with all those bad memories of constant scandals having to be ignored or defended…. All those mortifying stories they were forced to pretend were not a big deal… Her checkered distant and no-so distant past now already coming back to haunt her…. Hillary is damaged goods.

Defending Obama in the face of hislawlessness, duplicity and corruption is probably doing them all sorts of psychic pain. His Praetorian media have almost two more years to go of defending the indefensible, and it must be getting old. Those who still retain some semblance of a soul…

That’s pretty alarming. The government is going to go after people whether they are guilty or not?

Right-to-work states gained jobs three times faster than forced union states

Originally posted on Wintery Knight:

Gallup poll on right-to-work, August 2014 Gallup poll on right-to-work, August 2014

This is from economist Stephen Moore writing in Investors Business Daily.

He writes:

Wisconsin is poised this week to become the 25th “right-to-work state,” ending forced unionization and allowing individual workers to decide if they want to join a union or not.

The Wisconsin Senate just recently passed right-to-work, and our sources in Madison say that the House, which is controlled by Republicans, will enact a similar law in the days ahead.

Republican Gov. Scott Walker, a leading presidential candidate, is sure to sign the bill when it gets to his desk. “This isn’t anti-union,” insists Walker. “It restores worker rights and brings jobs back to Wisconsin.”

Some 3,000 liberal protesters stormed the Capitol in Madison over the weekend to reverse the momentum for the new law. This isn’t Walker’s first dust-up with union bosses. Four years ago, nearly 100,000 activists grabbed…

Now the White House Wants to Raise Taxes without Congressional Approval?!?

Originally posted on International Liberty:

I’m not reflexively opposed to executive orders and other unilateral actions by the White House. A president and his appointees, after all, have a lot of regulatory authority.

This is because, for better or worse, many of the laws approved in Washington basically express a goal and identify some tools. It’s then up to the relevant agency or agencies to promulgate regulations to enforce and implement those tools in order to supposedly achieve those goals.

But here’s the catch. The executive branch has to make at least a semi-plausible case that any given action is consistent with the law.

And the problem with this White House is that it has been using regulations and executive orders to change laws, thwart laws, and ignore laws.

There have been several instances of the White House arbitrarily deciding to ignore or altermajor parts of Obamacare.

The Obama Administration has decided a law…

Obstruction Leader Harry Reid to Attempt Historic Filibuster on Override of Keystone Veto

Originally posted on A Moral Outrage:

FreeBeacon

Harry Reid is taking unprecedented steps to block Senate Republicans, even though his actions will result in nothing but procedural delay.

In another example of Democrats playing the role of obstructionists, Harry Reid will force the Senate to go through procedural hurdles to delay Majority Leader Mitch McConnell from bringing up the president’s Keystone XL veto for an override vote.

Last week, President Obama vetoed the popular bipartisan Keystone XL Pipeline bill passed by the Senate.

This week, the Senate is planning a vote to override the president’s veto. Democrats, led by Minority Leader Harry Reid, are set to revoke normal order and attempt to filibuster the override of the President’s veto message.

The cloture vote on a veto message will be the first in the history of the United States Senate. That is because the threshold for a veto override is 67, while the threshold for a cloture…

IRS defends paying refunds to illegals who never filed taxes

The IRS is defending its decision to let illegal immigrants claim up to three years’ refunds on income even if they never paid income taxes, telling Congress in a new letter last week that agency lawyers have concluded getting a Social Security number triggers the ability to go back and ask for previous refunds.

President Obama’s new deportation amnesty could grant Social Security numbers to as many as 4 million illegal immigrants, making many of them eligible for tax refunds under the Earned Income Tax Credit even for years when they cheated on their taxes, working off the books and refusing to file tax returns.

“Section 32 of the Internal Revenue Code requires an SSN on the return, but a taxpayer claiming the EITC is not required to have an SSN before the close of the year for which the…
