Obama’s Unheard Address

Posted in Politics on November 21st, 2014

Did you see Obama’s prime-time about his executive amnesty for millions of foreigners who have criminally entered America? In all reasonable likelihood your answer, as has to be my own, is no. Not only is Obama jabbering about anything not something most Americans would waste their time upon, but none of the major MSM networks chose to broadcast the boy’s speech.

That’s right; ABC, CBS, NBC, and Fox all declined to air Obama’s address. The only broadcast networks to air it were the Spanish-language networks Univision and Telemundo. Some cable channels, e.g., CNN did, however, carry the broadcast.

This is not because these networks refused to air the address. It’s because they chose not to interrupt their normal programming during sweeps month when the White House never requested for them to air the boy’s declaration of intent.

No; by and large, the American people were not Obama’s target audience and the boy and his handlers and overseers had no real interest in our listening to his declaration of executive amnesty. He was talking almost solely to what the Left will be the Democrats’ future base.

No Executive Amnesty

Posted in Politics on November 20th, 2014

So the Scofflaw-in-Chief is going to commandeer the American airwaves tonight and jabber about how, through executive overreach, he’s going to countermand and overthrow the laws duly enacted by Congress by granting amnesty to millions of illegal aliens.

NOTE: Obama’s handlers and overseers, along with many of his remaining followers, object to the word “Amnesty” but not to the meaning of his acts in this matter.

What Obama’s executive amnesty really means is:

  • The boy will once again prove himself a liar by not drawing a distinction between conscious and inadvertent violators of America’s immigration laws as he repeatedly claimed we must do.
  • He’ll  cause yet another surge of illegals from Central and South American countries, just as his previous suspension of enforcement action against the so-called Dreamers in June of 2012 did.
  • The boy’s reported plan would legalize as permanent U.S. residents many tens of thousands of illegal alien criminals – ones that are criminal far beyond merely being violators of immigration law. Like his previous actions, Obama’s amnesty would include: murderers, rapists, kidnappers, and a host of other criminals whose offenses the Obama Regime doesn’t consider “serious.”
  • His actions, if allowed to stand, will cost the American taxpayers tens, if not hundreds, of billions of dollars a year since most the recipients of the boy’s amnesty will be uneducated, unskilled, poverty-stricken individuals who will instantly qualify for any and all means-tested social programs on the books.

Thankfully but not unexpectedly, Congress – with the stereotypical exception of the lame-duck democrats in the Senate – are not taking Obama’s attempt at gross executive overreach and infringement of the constitutionally mandated Separation of Powers lying down. They are already moving to defund those parts of the federal bureaucracy which would be needed to implement Obama’s planned executive amnesty.

This is, in my opinion, a moderately good response but it is difficult to fully realize and contains more form than function due to the bureaucracies in question having a backlog of various supplies and means to implement, in the near-term at least, Obama’s atrocity. I believe that America would be better served if Congress thought less about “No Executive Amnesty” and much more about “No Amnesty For The Executive.”

Instead of merely defunding those portions of the ICE that would allow Obama to legalize these illegal aliens, Congress should also defund all portions of the US Secret Service that do not direct pertain to safeguarding the payment and financial systems of the United States.

Let we, the People, who are the true law of- and keepers of justice in the land, decide whether or not to extend amnesty to Obama. ;-)

Obama’s Gala Dinner

Posted in 2014 Election, Food & Drink, Humor, Politics on November 18th, 2014

As all Americans know, Obama’s one of primary duties while in office has been to fundraise for various Democrat politicians. This means that he’s been doing a lot of gala dinners.

Mmmm, Mmmm, Mmmm Indonesian flame-roasted rat, a staple at Obama’s various fund-raising dinners. I’m so glad that one of the attendees was enough of a foodie to post the pic. ;-)

Ok, Ok! I’m just kidding. That is a heaping helping of Indonesian flame-roasted rat. It just wasn’t, insofar as I know, served at any of Obama’s attempts at fund-raising for his fellow-travelers. I’m betting though that the many Dems who got trounced in the 2014 elections due to Obama feel like they choked down some rat.
