Obama positioning for immigration reform

Obama positioning for immigration reform
WASHINGTON — With the health-care battle still unfinished, the Obama administration has been laying plans to take up an issue that could prove even more divisive — a major overhaul of the nation’s immigration system.

Senior White House aides privately have assured Latino activists that the president will back legislation next year to provide a path to citizenship for the estimated 12 million undocumented workers now living in the United States.

In addition to the citizenship provision, the emerging plan will stress efforts to secure U.S. borders against those trying to cross illegally. But that two-track approach was rejected repeatedly in the past by Republicans and other critics who insist a border crackdown must demonstrate its effectiveness before any action on citizenship is considered.

Whatever proposal Obama puts forward will likely be complicated by the calendar: Midterm elections are in November, and polls show the public is more worried about joblessness and the fragile economy than anything else.

Obama positioning for immigration reform

Is Barack Hussein Obama dead set on bringing this nation into CIVIL WAR?

I am convinced that the answer to that question is a resounding YES! Immigration reform was one of the reasons George W. Bush lost as much support as he did during that last 2 years of his presidency.

There are many, and I am one of them, that still believe that ILLEGAL immigration, our wide open borders after 9-11 and the lack of any definitive action to secure those border, and remove the ILLEGALS of this nation, will be the downfall OF America as we once knew it.

To legalize these ILLEGALS, to give them any kind of amnesty, to open the door to citizenship, will not do anything to alleviate the problems that America is facing. Any of the just mentioned actions will only further complicate our problems and plunge us further into the abyss.

The White House already has a packed agenda for 2010: economic recovery, global-warming legislation and tougher regulation of financial institutions.

If our lawmakers have ANY sense, I mean any, even a small shred, they will tell Obama to forget it. The ObamaCare debacle is going to cost quite a few Senators and Congressmen their jobs in 2010, any attempt to push through a bill that gives preferential treatment, or a fast track to citizenship to ILLEGALS will only add fuel to the fire that IS burning!

As a candidate, Obama vowed to take up immigration during his first year in office. That deadline will come and go. Further delay could anger Latino voters, who came out in force for the president and congressional Democrats in 2008.

Latino voters did support Obama and his BS, they bought it, hook, line and sinker. Dallas County was carried by Obama, as was Harris County (Houston) and several counties along the Mexican border. Texas, as a whole, rejected Obama and will do so again in 2012.

An immigration bill was introduced in the House earlier in the month, and Sen. Charles E. Schumer, D-N.Y., who chairs a subcommittee on immigration, is heading the effort to cobble together a bipartisan coalition in the Senate.

And just look at WHO is leading the charge! Chucky Schumer. That should tell ANY thinking person ALL they need to know about this coming immigration reform push. If Schumer is for it, it can’t be good for America! Thanks New York, we ALL appreciate your wonderful Sen. Chucky.

GOP attorney generals threaten suit over Nebraska health deal

GOP attorney generals threaten suit over Nebraska health deal

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — Republican attorneys general in 13 states say congressional leaders must remove Nebraska’s political deal from the federal health care overhaul bill or face legal action, according to a letter provided to The Associated Press Wednesday.

“We believe this provision is constitutionally flawed,” South Carolina Attorney General Henry McMaster and the 12 other attorneys general wrote in the letter to be sent Wednesday night to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.

“As chief legal officers of our states we are contemplating a legal challenge to this provision and we ask you to take action to render this challenge unnecessary by striking that provision,” they wrote.

In a rare Christmas Eve vote, Senate Democrats pushed sweeping health care legislation to the brink of Senate passage, crushing a year-end Republican filibuster against President Obama’s call to remake the nation’s health care system. The 60-39 vote marked the third time in as many days Democrats posted a supermajority needed to advance the legislation.

GOP attorney generals threaten suit over Nebraska health deal

I can’t fault these attorneys general, not in ANY way. But if we’re going to stand against the oh so sweetheart deal that Ben Nelson got for Nebraska, why can we go after the biggest WHORE in the Senate? I am talking about Mary *$300M* Landrieu of Louisiana.

Landrieu sold her vote on ObamaCare to harry Reid for a paltry $300 MILLION dollars!

“It’s not $100 million, it’s $300 million, and I’m proud of it and will keep fighting for it,? she told reporters after a floor speech announcing her support of a vote to begin debate on healthcare reform. SOURCE

I don’t care what you call it or how you look at it, Mary Landrieu sold her vote. In doing so, she sold her integrity as well, what integrity she had that is. She prostituted her vote! I don’t care how you cut it, she has whored herself to Harry Reid and this debacle known as ObamaCare!

Last week, McMaster said he was leading several other attorneys general in an inquiry into the constitutionality of the estimated $100 million deal he has dubbed the “Cornhusker Kickback.”

I am proud to say, our Texas Attorney General, Mr. Greg Abbott, has signed on to this.

The letter was signed by top prosecutors in Alabama, Colorado, Florida, Idaho, Michigan, North Dakota, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, South Dakota, Texas, Utah, Virginia and Washington state. All are Republicans, and McMaster and the attorneys general of Florida, Michigan and Pennsylvania are running for governor in their respective states. SOURCE

I am fairly certain that the cry your hear in the background is the sniveling leftists as they cry, “Curses, foiled again!”.

I think we all know that the left will say this action by the attorneys general is nothing more than a brazen political move designed to stop the Dems from giving, GIVING I say, giving Americans the healthcare they truly deserve.

McMaster says if the bill goes through to final approval with the benefit to Nebraska, taxpayers in the other 49 states will have to pay for it.

Obama: US intel had info ahead of airliner attack

Obama: US intel had info ahead of airliner attack
HONOLULU (AP) – President Barack Obama said Tuesday that the intelligence community had bits of information that should have been pieced together that would have triggered “red flags” and possibly prevented the Christmas Day attempted terror attack on a Detroit-bound airliner.

“There was a mix of human and systemic failures that contributed to this potential catastrophic breach of security,” Obama said.

Obama: US intel had info ahead of airliner attack

“There was a mix of human and systemic failures” you say?

You know, sometimes I scare myself with the analysis I offer and the words I use in doing so.

When your own family sounds the warning, when they try to alert others to your potential to do violence and commit acts of terror, and those warnings are pretty much ignored, and swept under the rug, that is sorely indicative of systemic failure.

Those are the words I used to describe what we are seeing from the Obama administration a day or so ago, in this post; Feds assess terror watchlists after airline attack. Systemic failure.

It’s not easy making all of these astute observations you know! Trying to 2nd guess and predict the words and deeds of the most evil administration in American history is a lot of work!

Now I have to wonder, does Obama and Company read my blog? :P

The officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss intelligence matters, said the conversations were vague or coded, but the intelligence community believes that, in hindsight, the communications may have been referring to the Detroit attack. One official said a link between the suspect’s planning and al-Qaida’s goals was becoming more clear.

Intelligence officials would not confirm whether those conversations involved Yemen-based radical cleric Anwar al-Awlaki, but other U.S. government officials said there were initial indications that he was involved. Al-Awlaki reportedly corresponded by e-mail with Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, who is charged with killing 13 people at Fort Hood, Texas, on Nov. 5.

Have you noticed? Information about the attack at Ft. Hood has been less than flowing. Again we are going to see a less than transparent response from the Obama administration. Shuck and jive! The political spin of a Chicago community organizer.

They are looking for a way to spin this closing, or attempted closing, of the barn door after the horse has left the building.

Officials said Obama chose to make a second statement in as many days because a morning briefing offered him new information in the government’s possession about the suspect’s activities and thinking, along with al-Qaida’s plans.

I beg your pardon? He made a 2nd statement because he has minions that are watching for any sign of serious dissent against The Obamessiah!

Dissent is running rampant, and Obama is going about the business of CYA, Cover Your Ass for those not familiar with the acronym. He is not about to get caught with his hand in the cookie jar. There are people that can be thrown under the bus. There are those that will fall on their sword to protect and defend the reputation and integrity of The Obamessiah!

Obama’s statement showed more fire than he had shown previously about the lapses that allowed the bombing attack to take place and came after his homeland security secretary, Janet Napolitano, had to backtrack on an assertion that “the system worked” in the Detroit airliner scare. Some have criticized Obama for not addressing the issue publicly sooner.
