Obamacare: The REAL Stupid American Voters

Obama admits: ‘I Just Took An Action To Change The Law’

The great thing about Obama’s TelePrompter is that when he stops reading from it, he slips up and tells the truth.

Daniel Halper:

The White House has argued that President Obama’s executive amnesty order last week was made well within the existing law. But in remarks in Chicago tonight, President Obama went off script and admitted that in fact he unilaterally made changes to the law.

President Obama made the admission after getting heckled for several minutes by immigration protesters.

Rubio’s Senate Bill Paves Way For Obama’s Executive Amnesty Orders Read

Posted at sharktank.com by Javier Manjarres on November 21, 2014
.
Presidente Barack Obama has followed through with this threat of signing a sweeping executive amnesty order for illegal immigrants with his primetime TV announcement that he would sign the orders on Friday in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Obama’s move was purely political, as he and the Democrats continue to reel over their 2014 midterm election debacle, knowing that jamming through amnesty for illegal immigration would only serve set up Republicans as anti-Hispanic in the eyes of current, and potentially future Hispanic voters, if and when they decided to challenge the President on his executive amnesty orders.

During his address, Obama mentioned that he would push forward with his executive orders because the House of Representatives failed to, or refused to take up and allow a “simple vote” on the controversial and pro-illegal immigration “Gang of 8″ Senate bill cosponsored by Florida Senator Marco Rubio, which Obama said was a fair “compromise.”

Obama: Kneel Before Zod – Obama’s Amnesty Speech

The following article by Ben Shapiro was posted on Breitbart.com last night shortly after president Obama’s official announcement of his constitutional power grab (executive amnesty speech).  I read it with my jaw wide open most of the time as I realized that I had some of the same thoughts that Mr. Shapiro expressed while I was watching the speech.  I said some of the same thoughts, not all; this young man Shapiro is literally brilliant, and he definitely knows how to say what’s on his mind.

This article is not the shortest chapter in the book, but you’ve got to read it.  And let me know what you think (comment) if you’re so inclined. Thanks.

On Thursday night, President Obama delivered his address to the nation on his executive amnesty. It was historic, both in its scope and in its dishonesty: the speech represented a closely-woven and incredible tapestry of falsehood, exposited with a straight face by the greatest liar in modern American history. To those versed in immigration and constitutional law, watching Obama lay out his program felt like watching a madman describe, with preternaturally perfect sincerity, how the moon was constructed of cheese: you know the argument is untrue, but it’s incredible to watch its dogged exposition.

Obama opened with a glowing talk about the wonders of immigration – generalizations with which virtually [all] Americans agree, as is his wont.

Then the lies began. Posing as an immigration hardliner, Obama stated that he felt for “families who enter our country the right way and play by the rules,” and who “watch others flout the rules” (of course, Obama was mere moments away from rewarding those who flout the rules and punishing those who play by them). He then explained that businesses exploited cheap immigrant labor (of course, Obama was about to announce wage pressure downward in the form of amnesty). He summed up with this incredible sentence:

All of us take offense to anyone who reaps the rewards of living in America without taking on the responsibilities of living in America.

Well, no. Not all of us, given that the Democratic Party draws its voting base from those who wish to reap the rewards of living in America’s generous welfare state without taking on the responsibilities of doing so.

Obama continued with his fibs about how he had secured the southern border, citing a drop in illegal border crossings – a drop caused almost entirely by Obama’s weak economy (Obama himself dated the immigration drop to 2007, when President Bush was in office). He pooh-poohed the “brief spike in unaccompanied children being apprehended at our border,” and said that “the number of such children is now actually lower than it’s been in nearly two years.” The notion that there has been a decrease in unaccompanied children crossing our border, according to FactCheck.org, is false.

This all prefaced Obama’s big power grab. In true dictatorial fashion, Obama laid out how the legislative process had failed – and then noted that he had to do what he had to do.

Now, I continue to believe that the best way to solve this problem is by working together to pass that kind of common sense law. But until that happens, there are actions I have the legal authority to take as President – the same kinds of actions taken by Democratic and Republican Presidents before me – that will help make our immigration system more fair and more just.

Obama has no such legal authority. He knows it. Obama’s executive amnesty is different in scope and kind from anything before it. Neither Ronald Reagan nor George H.W. Bush pursued their amnesty programs in the complete absence of Congressional legislation. No president has ever legalized some 7 million illegal immigrants, as Obama has done over the past three years. This is unprecedented. Read more at breitbart.com.

 

Ted Cruz: Midterms Were ‘Referendum on Amnesty,’ Obama Just Ignoring

Go Ted go, but we’re fighting an uphill battle on a treadmill – Especially with the House and Senate lead by Boehner and McConnell.

Published on Nov 19, 2014 by FastNews!!

Senator Ted Cruz joined Megyn Kelly tonight to rail against President Obama‘s planned action on immigration. And Cruz argued Obama’s acting particularly despotic, not just because he’s taking executive action without the approval of Congress, but because he is flagrantly ignoring the message the American people sent in the midterm elections.

Cruz argued that the midterms were actually a “referendum on amnesty” and that Obama is discarding the will of the people and becoming an “unaccountable monarch.”

Cruz also pointed out that 1) Obama has said elections have consequences when they go his way, and 2) several Democrats who supported his immigration plan in the Senate were voted out. He again proposed that the Republican-held Senate should threaten to block every single Obama nominee if Obama attempts to act on his own.

The Straw Man Interview

From friend and GTP member Jim Sharp:

theconversation.com

Tonight, I had the pleasure of interviewing Straw Man. Mr. Man has been the object of much criticism from President Obama and the Democratic Party. He’s been in hiding until recently, for his own safety. Now, vindicated by this latest election, he’s agreed to speak with me tonight.

ME: Good evening, Straw Man, and welcome.

You’ve endured numerous vitriolic assaults, over the years. From the classic “You want to throw granny over the cliff,” to “You want old people on social security to choose between heating and eating dog food.”

They say you don’t care about the environment; that you’re for “dirty air and dirty water.” And, of course, that you’re a “climate-change denier.”

Many say you want little children on welfare to starve. Then there’s your supposed “war on women,” your hatred for gays and minorities. And, of course, you hate puppies … the list goes on.

My question to you, sir, is how you do it? – How have you weathered these withering politics of personal destruction?

STRAW: Well, thank you, Serv. At first, I really let this stuff get to me. I got defensive – quiet and introverted. I went around mumbling to myself, asking myself, “How did it come to this?” How did someone like me – who wants everyone to live a good, productive life, to be a good citizen, to experience the blessings of liberty – come to be so misunderstood, even despised?

Nothing in my life prepared me for that. Finally, I started to realize – it’s not me, it’s THEM! THEY hate me for the very things I stand for. It’s their job to deconstruct my life. They were trying to make me feel bad. They wanted to get people to hate me. It’s a power grab. I learned not to take it personally.

Now, finally, other people are starting to see that too – my critics were SO over-the-top that people began to sympathize with me. They look in the mirror, and see me. My critics SO over-reached, and SO exposed themselves, that now I’m starting to feel safe to be seen again in public, even to speak out.

ME: You’ve been disavowed even by your supposed friends, the Republicans. Aren’t you afraid of being back-stabbed?

STRAW: I know, I know – the Republicans wouldn’t come out and defend me. Some did, here and there, but they certainly didn’t make a concerted effort. It’s not that they hate me; I think they were just afraid to say anything, for fear of being laughed at or criticized.

Some people tried to protect me – the Tea Party and such; conservatives, and some corporations. I appreciate that. But they were silenced, as much as possible, by the Obama Democrats. For some reason, his corporations were considered okay, but my corporations are “dark,” – not to be trusted.

Thing is, the Obama Democrats, they NEVER talk to me. They never even consider my real point of view! They couldn’t tell you what my real point of view is! They exaggerate and stereotype all my positions!

It’s what they have to do to make themselves feel special.  Read more at the405media.com.

FBN’s Melissa Francis: I Was ‘Silenced’ at CNBC for Questioning Obamacare

Opinion:  The person who most disrespects the office of the president is the one who occupies that office.

As quoted in the NY Post, a CNBC rep said, “That’s laughable, but we take notice, because as the fastest-growing network in prime time, we’re always on the lookout for high quality comedy writers and actresses.” (Hat tip: bizpacreview.com)

Francis appeared on The Kelly File on Fox News on Monday night and discussed this debacle further:

Watch Obama Make the Case Against Executive Amnesty

No Surrender on Immigration

Who will protect the nation, if not us?

By Sen. Jeff Sessions * Nov. 10, 2014
.
On Election Day, Americans roared in protest against the President’s open-borders extremism. They rallied behind candidates who will defend the rule of law and put the needs of American workers and families first.Exit polls were unequivocal. More than 3 in 4 voters cited immigration as an important factor in their vote, believed that U.S. workers should get priority for jobs, and opposed the President’s plans for executive amnesty. These voters were right and just in their demands.
But President Obama made clear that he would attempt to void the election results—and our laws—by moving forward with his executive amnesty decree. Read more at politico.com.

 

 

Gruber’s Obamacare Comments Expose What’s Wrong With Liberalism

At the end of the day, liberals not only believe that they’re smarter than the public, but that they have a better sense of what’s good for the people than Americans themselves.”

Photo credit: Libertarian Today

MIT economist Jonathan Gruber, a leading architect of President Obama’s healthcare law, is under fire for recently surfaced comments in which he conceded that to pass Obamacare, supporters relied on “the stupidity of the American voter” to hide its actual effects.

My colleague Tim Carney has already written about how the comments are just the latest reminder of how the law was built on a foundation of lies. But there is a broader message in all of this — that Gruber’s comments get to the heart of what’s wrong with liberalism.
