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.”

Officer Wilson Breaks Silence • Rudy Giuliani

November 25th, 2014 • Officer Darren Wilson broke his silence on the shooting death of Michael Brown. Mayor Rudy Giuliani weighs in with Fox News host Megyn Kelly.

Obama Gives Utterly Infuriating Response to Ferguson Decision

Note in the above video clip, that while Obama is talking about not smashing car windows, etc., the mob in Ferguson is trashing a police car.

From Conservativetribune.com:

Obama just gave his response to the grand jury saying Wilson has violated no law. His response was infuriating, typical, and race baiting just like usual. At one point, he even said he wants to “seize the moment” to push his racial agenda.

Barack Obama is the Divider in Chief. His goal is to divide Americans to keep some demographics strong for the Democrat party for political gain. It’s a typical liberal strategy and it’s sickening.

Let’s look at the points he made:

1. Refused to Say Wilson’s Name.

Perhaps the first sign it was going to be a racially dividing speech was the first few sentences when he refused to mention Officer Wilson by name. Instead, he referred to it as the ruling regarding the death of Michael Brown.

2. Brought Up the “Rule of Law.”

Really? Really, you total fraud?

3. Used Dramatic Language to Describe Protesters.

He said, “There are Americans who agree with it and there are Americans who are deeply disappointed, even angry.” Note the different tone he uses describing both groups. It’s obvious that Obama is against Wilson.

4. Said He “Joins” Michael Brown’s Family.

Obama literally said, “I Join Michael Brown’s Family.” This was completely unnecessary and wrong. Instead of simply calling for peace, he wants to make it clear which side he’s on. This is NOT a federal issue, but of course, he couldn’t care less.

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.

Berkeley City Council Approves Warning Labels for Gas Pumps

With the news cycle dominated by many hot button issues and events – amnesty, terrorism, GruberGate, Fergusen and more, I thought it fitting to take a step away and report on this.  One can never underestimate the ingenuity of the folks out there on the left coast – ADB:

“May Cause Global Warming”

Berkeley, Calif., could become the first city in the country install warning labels on gas pumps. The city council voted late Tuesday to move forward on a plan to festoon the city’s fueling stations with stickers warnings that “burning fuel contributes to global warming,” the Associate Press reports.

San Francisco (obviously) is also considering a proposal to install the warning labels on gas pumps, which supporters have compared to the health warnings on cigarette packages. The program is estimated to cost up to $20,000.

Berkeley has a long history of doing things to appease its population of militant hippies. For example, police have been riding bicycles there since 1910. Officials have also banned Styrofoam and raised taxes on sugary drinks.  Read more at freebeacon.com.

Terror Attack in Jerusalem • Israeli Ambassador Ron Dermer

Again from The Kelly File on Fox News:  Megyn and Israeli ambassador to the United States, Ron Dermer discuss the heinous slaughter of five Jews at a Jerusalem Synagogue the took place the morning of November 18th during morning prayers.  Watch for president Obama’s tepid response beginning at 2:44 into the clip.  Remember, three of the five people slaughtered were American citizens.  Try to find his anger.  Try to find the outrage in his voice, and if you do, please let me know.  Continue watching and you’ll see the “peace loving” Palestinians celebrating the slaughter.  They even handed out candy and cakes.  After all, the hacking to death of Jews in a synagogue is a festive event.

A cartoon posted on the Facebook page of Hamas MP Mushir Al-Masri has perpetrators of the Jerusalem attack dressed in religious Jewish garb asking ‘Where are they?’ (photo credit: Facebook)

Be sure you see the reactions expressed on twitchy.com where the headline was: ‘Mr. President, shut up’: Obama calls on Israel to help ‘lower tensions’ following terrorist attack in JerusalemRead the tweets and please scroll down to Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas’ supposed condemnation of the atrocities.

God help us all!

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:

 

 

 

Organizers Train Newly Minted Protesters in St. Louis

Protesters anxiously awaiting the St. Louis grand jury decision relating to the shooting death of 18-year-old Mike Brown have been training activists all weekend in preparation for the day the grand jury makes an announcement about whether to indict Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson for Brown’s death.

In a small room located on South Jefferson Avenue in a building used by IUOE Local 148, organizers like Rev. Osagyefo Sekou are instructing groups of individuals about tactics relating to resisting police commands during demonstrations.  Sekou is a St. Louis native who grew up in the area but now lives in Massachusetts.

Topics covered by organizers like Sekou as well as Deray McKesson and others included decentralized protest actions, jail support, first aid, legal issues, as well as staying safe on the streets during demonstrations. Read more at breitbart.com.

By the way, if you really think this is going to be non-violent, the line to buy the bridges is over there on the left.

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.
