Democrats Make Your Case, Please!

Although I’m not holding my breath, I’m waiting for some Liberal, Progressive,  Democrat, Socialist, Communist, Marxist, or anyone,  to make the case for bringing terrorists into this country among the refugees which, administration and DOD experts, not the elected ones, say will happen.

And also, to make the case about why their help can not happen THERE instead of bringing them HERE, to a country that is predominately Christian (they are predominately Islamic) and that does not share their language or culture. And most likely, if Dearbornistan is any indication, a country that they probably don’t like very much. . . .

CBS Democrat Debate, 11/14/2015

Realizing that not many people will take time out of their weekend to watch the CBS sponsored Democratic Debate, and, realizing that the DNC really doesn’t want these three to be seen or heard by a wide audience, and, realizing that CBS won’t be replaying the debate like the cable news networks do, I took the time to watch it on YouTube. It boils down to this. Continue reading CBS Democrat Debate, 11/14/2015

Appeals Court Upholds Injunction On Obama’s Executive Orders

The 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans upheld a May injunction by a Texas court, dealing a blow to Obama’s plan to circumvent Congress, the only body that can make or change immigration laws.

At the same time, the court affirmed what President Obama said, no less than 22 times. He has no authority to take unilateral action on Immigration.

  1. March 31, 2008: “I take the Constitution very seriously. The biggest problems that we’re facing right now have to do with [the president] trying to … not go through Congress at all. And that’s what I intend to reverse when I’m President…”
  2. May 19, 2008: “I believe in the Constitution and I will obey the Constitution of the United States.”
  3. May 5, 2010: “Anybody who tells you … that I can wave a magic wand and make it happen hasn’t been paying attention to how this town works.”
  4. July 1, 2010: “[T]here are those … who have argued passionately that we should … at least ignore the laws on the books… I believe such an indiscriminate approach would be both unwise and unfair.”
  5. October 14, 2010: “I do have an obligation to make sure that I am following some of the rules. I can’t simply ignore laws that are out there.”
  6. October 25, 2010: “I am president, I am not king. I can’t do these things just by myself. … I can’t just make the laws up by myself.”
  7. March 28, 2011: “America is a nation of laws, which means I, as the President, am obligated to enforce the law.”
  8. April 20, 2011: “I can’t solve this problem by myself. …  I can’t do it by myself.”
  9. April 29, 2011: “Some here wish that I could just bypass Congress and change the law myself.  But that’s not how democracy works”
  10. May 10, 2011: “They wish I could just bypass Congress and change the law myself. But that’s not how a democracy works.”
  11. July 25, 2011: “The idea of doing things on my own is very tempting. … But that’s not how our system works. That’s not how our democracy functions. That’s not how our Constitution is written.”
  12. September 28, 2011: “We live in a democracy.  You have to pass bills through the legislature, and then I can sign it.”
  13. September 20, 2012: “What I’ve always said is, as the head of the executive branch, there’s a limit to what I can do.”
  14. October 16, 2012: “We’re … a nation of laws. … And I’ve done everything that I can on my own.”
  15. January 30, 2013: “I’m not a king. I am the head of the executive branch of government. I’m required to follow the law.”
  16. January 30, 2013: “I’m not a king. You know, my job as the head of the executive branch ultimately is to carry out the law.”
  17. February 14, 2013: “The problem is that I’m the president of the United States, I’m not the emperor of the United States.”
  18. July 16, 2013: “I think that it is very important for us to recognize that the way to solve this problem has to be legislative.”
  19. September 17, 2013: “My job in the executive branch is supposed to be to carry out the laws that are passed. … But if we start broadening that, then essentially I would be ignoring the law…”
  20. November 25, 2013: “The easy way out is to try to yell and pretend like I can do something by violating our laws. … That’s not our tradition.”
  21. March 6, 2014: “And I cannot ignore those laws any more than I could ignore … any of the other laws that are on the books.”
  22. August 6, 2014: “I’m bound by the Constitution; I’m bound by separation of powers.”

Immigration System And The Meme

One of the biggest lies perpetrated on the American people is over immigration.  The lie is “the immigration system is broken.”

Enforce the law and see how well it works. Allowing sanctuary cities to exist is not a fault of immigration law.  That has nothing to do with immigration law. End them.

Democrats, the Chamber of Commerce, and RINOs are the ones claiming the system is broken, and that “comprehensive” immigration reform is needed. What that means is amnesty, striking current immigration laws, not enforcing them, open borders, and chain immigration.

The first two want illegals but for different reasons. For Democrats, illegals are a ready-made constituency, already familiar with socialism and eager to get the free stuff Democrats are offering. They are, essentially, undocumented democrats. 30 million of them.

The Chamber of Commerce looks at the illegals as cheap labor. They don’t care about the law or the negative pressure they place on wages of American citizens. Cheap(er) labor means more profits.

The establishment Republican Party want’s “comprehensive immigration reform” because they believe the meme that they’ll not get elected without supporting it. Not only a total pander, but a meme not based in reality. Romney’s loss was not because he didn’t get more Hispanics to vote for him. Romney lost because 3 million republicans stayed home.

All the groups pull out the straw-man argument that “we can’t round up 30 million people and deport them.” No one is suggesting any “round-up.”

The solution is simple and, not extreme. Enforce existing law.

Democratic Socialist Debate On CNN

Americans, illegals, and future illegals were treated to a triple dip of taxing, spending, and free stuff as the Democrat Party’s vision for America. Like most everything they’ve been supporting since 2008, it has been the turning everything we know upside-down. From the American dream and capitalism, the Constitution and Bill of Rights, and any hint of fiscal responsibility. It also was the first Democratic debate I’ve seen where an Independent was included. Were it not for the Independent (avowed socialist) Bernie Sanders, the TV viewing audience would have been down to friends and relatives of CNN employees.

Wealth envy and class warfare, with a heaping topping of race divisiveness were also evident. Basically, they get their power from pitting Americans against each other by creating victims, villains, and the savior. Not Jesus Christ, but them and their Party. Exhibiting a moral standard  of the lowest of society, with expectations to match.

Doubling the national debt since 2008, and proposing to double it again with all the “free stuff,” and ignoring the already unsustainable unfunded mandates (Social Security, Medicare) that exceed $100 trillion, were not even considered. Essentially, what we saw was a race to the bottom if Democrats keep The White House in 2016.

They also were bold to say how they would circumvent Congress and the Bill of Rights. The 1st and 2nd Amendments to this bunch are not principles to be protected. Instead, they are obstacles to their rule.

The most amusing thing to see was how they all trashed Obama’s seven years in office with no jobs, low wages, brutal police in Democrat strongholds,  and the bad Iran deal. You know, that deal they were for before they were against it. They all were talking as though a Republican has been in power for the last seven years.


Hillary’s First Night As President ??

Hillary Clinton was sworn in today as President. She has disposed of Bill and is spending her first night alone in the White House. She has waited several years for this!


Suddenly! The ghost of George Washington appears to her, and Hillary says, “How can I best serve my country?”

Washington says, “Never tell a lie.”

“Ouch!” Says Hillary, “I don’t know about that.”


The next night, the ghost of Thomas Jefferson appears…?

Hillary says, “How can I best serve my country?”

Jefferson says, “Listen to the people.”

“Ohhh! I really really don’t want to do that.”


On the third night, the ghost of Abraham Lincoln appears…?

Hillary says, “How can I best serve my country?”

Lincoln says,

“Go to the theater.”


The Ambidextrous Lady Golfer

A group of men live and die for their Saturday morning golf game. One transfers to another city and they’re lost without him.
A new woman joins their Club. When she hears the guys talking about their golf round, she says, “I played on my college’s golf team. I was pretty good. Mind if I join you next week?”

No one wants to say ‘yes’, but they’re on the spot. Finally, one man says. Okay, but we start at 6:30 a.m. He figures the early tee-time will discourage her. The woman says this may be a problem, and asks if she can be up to 15 minutes late.

They roll their eyes, but say, “Okay”. But she’s there at 6:30 a.m. sharp, and beats all of them with an eye-opening 2-under par round. She’s fun and pleasant, and the guys are impressed. They congratulate her and invite her back the next week. She smiles, and says, “I’ll be there at 6:30 or 6:45.”

The next week she again shows up again at 6:30 sharp. Only this time, she plays left-handed. The three guys are incredulous as she still beats them with an even par round, despite playing with her off-hand. They’re totally amazed. They can’t figure her out. But she’s very pleasant and a gracious winner. They invite her back again, but each man harbours a burning desire to beat her.

The third week, she’s 15 minutes late this time, which irritates the guys. This week she plays right-handed again, but narrowly beats all three of them. The men grumble that her late arrival is petty gamesmanship on her part. However, she’s so charming and complimentary of their strong play, they can’t hold a grudge.

Still, this woman is a riddle no one can figure out. They have a couple of beers in the Clubhouse, and finally, one of the men asks her, “How do you decide if you’re going to golf right-handed or left-handed?”
The lady blushes, and grins. “When my Dad taught me to play golf, I learned I was ambidextrous,” she replies. “I like to switch back and forth. When I got married after college, I discovered my husband always sleeps in the nude. From then on, I developed a silly habit….
Right before I leave in the morning for golf practice, I pull the covers off him. If his Willie points to the right, I golf right-handed; if it points to the left, I golf left-handed.”

The guys think this is hysterical. Astonished at this bizarre information, one of the guys says, “What if it’s pointing straight up?”
She says, “Then, I’m fifteen minutes late.”

Full Measure reporter Sharyl Attkisson’s one on one with Dr. Ben Carson.

Calm, low-key, and full of common sense. Eight minutes that will drive the Left crazy. Not because he attacks them (like they do to him), but because his message is attractive across party lines.

Jeb Bush Off By Hundreds Of Billions

Jeb Bush criticizes Donald Trump’s plan to build a great big wall with a beautiful door as something that will cost hundreds of billions of dollars. He’s on the campaign trail saying that doing so is ridiculously unaffordable and hopelessly unrealistic.

Well, he’s only off by hundreds of billions of dollars. Not only that, but when you consider the cost of an illegal alien to the United States, it would reach a break-even point after 8,500 illegals are prevented from crossing.

The 245-mile security fence in Israel cost $450 million, averaging $1.8 million per mile. Assuming the completion of our security fence would cost the same amount, the total tab would come in at just under $2 billion. Even if we use higher estimates of 9 million per mile, as estimated by DHS for the cost of the San Diego fence, that would amount to roughly $6 billion for the project. 

Af far cry from hundreds of billions of dollars Jeb. The more Jeb speaks, the more he demagogues, the more he sounds like Obama. Bush is not the one for The White House because like Obama, he does not have America’s, and American’s, best interest in mind.

On Immigration, Trump Owns Media

There’s one guy just tickled to death that Donald Trump is dominating the news on the subject of immigration. President Barack Obama. Anything to draw attention from participating in nuclear proliferation and providing funding to a terrorist-supporting country. And from trying to cripple the energy industry, coal specifically, and drive up the cost of electricity. But I digress . . .

Were it not for Donald Trump, what would the candidates be talking about?

Trump held a press conference yesterday. It was broadcast on two cable news channels. (Are any other candidates talking to the media? Or, is any media talking to other candidates?) At the start, Jorge Ramos from Univision, failed at imitating a BlackLivesMatter antagonist and got the spanking he deserved. Not because Univision and Trump are involved in a lawsuit, but because Ramos was acting like a spoiled child. After Ramos returned, Trump gave him more time than any other candidate would at answering and taking questions from a single reporter. Trump came out the winner in that exchange.

Later on FNC’s The Kelly File, Megyn Kelly asked Ted Cruz if he would deport an American citizen if his parents were illegals? She was speaking of an anchor baby. Instead of answering that question, Cruz gave his own answer which included words to the effect of “I’m not playing that game.”

I’ll answer your question Megyn Kelly. The answer is YES. That’s because, obviously, the family should be kept together. And if the parents would refuse to take their child with them, abandoning the child, then the kid should be taken from them as unfit parents, put in foster care, and the parents sent back to wherever they came from. And the anchor baby problem will cure itself.

Also yesterday, speaking in McAllen, Texas, Jeb Bush said, in Spanish, “I, as President, I would go to congress and change the law to give them not a residency but citizenship.” It is Bush’s belief that illegals (he and Obama call them Dreamers) deserve it. Like so many other candidates, Jeb is on that “the immigration system is broken” bandwagon.

It’s that whole “deserve” thing that troubles me. The other thing that troubles me is when people/politicians say the immigration system is broken. The only way to determine that is to enforce the immigration laws. They are pretty clear. We need a leader to demand that the laws, all of them, be enforced. No sanctuary cities, no anchor babies, no anything for illegals, except a ride back to the border.

Aside from Trump pretty much owning the media, the media is doing a great disservice to the folks by ignoring all but a select few of the other candidates. One such candidate has filed a complaint to the FEC over the media’s totally biased reporting on the field of candidates. And, he’s the only candidate so far who can show you his plan in writing. That would be Kerry Bowers.

Anchor Babies

Justice Brennan’s Footnote Gave Us Anchor Babies

Democrats act as if the right to run across the border when you’re 8 1/2 months pregnant, give birth in a U.S. hospital and then immediately start collecting welfare was exactly what our forebears had in mind, a sacred constitutional right, as old as the 14th Amendment itself.

The louder liberals talk about some ancient constitutional right, the surer you should be that it was invented in the last few decades.

In fact, this alleged right derives only from a footnote slyly slipped into a Supreme Court opinion by Justice Brennan in 1982. You might say it snuck in when no one was looking, and now we have to let it stay.

The 14th Amendment was added after the Civil War in order to overrule the Supreme Court’s Dred Scott decision, which had held that black slaves were not citizens of the United States. The precise purpose of the amendment was to stop sleazy Southern states from denying citizenship rights to newly freed slaves — many of whom had roots in this country longer than a lot of white people.

The amendment guaranteed that freed slaves would have all the privileges of citizenship by providing: “All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside.”

The drafters of the 14th amendment had no intention of conferring citizenship on the children of aliens who happened to be born in the U.S. (For my younger readers, back in those days, people cleaned their own houses and raised their own kids.)

Inasmuch as America was not the massive welfare state operating as a magnet for malingerers, frauds and cheats that it is today, it’s amazing the drafters even considered the amendment’s effect on the children of aliens.

But they did.

The very author of the citizenship clause, Sen. Jacob Howard of Michigan, expressly said: “This will not, of course, include persons born in the United States who are foreigners, aliens, who belong to the families of ambassadors or foreign ministers.”

In the 1884 case Elk v. Wilkins, the Supreme Court ruled that the 14th Amendment did not even confer citizenship on Indians — because they were subject to tribal jurisdiction, not U.S. jurisdiction.

For a hundred years, that was how it stood, with only one case adding the caveat that children born to legal permanent residents of the U.S., gainfully employed, and who were not employed by a foreign government would also be deemed citizens under the 14th Amendment. (United States v. Wong Kim Ark, 1898.)

And then, out of the blue in 1982, Justice Brennan slipped a footnote into his 5-4 opinion in Plyler v. Doe, asserting that “no plausible distinction with respect to Fourteenth Amendment ‘jurisdiction’ can be drawn between resident aliens whose entry into the United States was lawful, and resident aliens whose entry was unlawful.” (Other than the part about one being lawful and the other not.)

Brennan’s authority for this lunatic statement was that it appeared in a 1912 book written by Clement L. Bouve. (Yes, the Clement L. Bouve — the one you’ve heard so much about over the years.) Bouve was not a senator, not an elected official, certainly not a judge — just some guy who wrote a book.

So on one hand we have the history, the objective, the author’s intent and 100 years of history of the 14th Amendment, which says that the 14th Amendment does not confer citizenship on children born to illegal immigrants.

On the other hand, we have a random outburst by some guy named Clement — who, I’m guessing, was too cheap to hire an American housekeeper.

Any half-wit, including Clement L. Bouve, could conjure up a raft of such “plausible distinction(s)” before breakfast. Among them: Legal immigrants have been checked for subversive ties, contagious diseases, and have some qualification to be here other than “lives within walking distance.”

But most important, Americans have a right to decide, as the people of other countries do, who becomes a citizen.

Combine Justice Brennan’s footnote with America’s ludicrously generous welfare policies, and you end up with a bankrupt country.

Consider the story of one family of illegal immigrants described in the Spring 2005 Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons:

“Cristobal Silverio came illegally from Oxtotilan, Mexico, in 1997 and brought his wife Felipa, plus three children aged 19, 12 and 8. Felipa … gave birth to a new daughter, her anchor baby, named Flor. Flor was premature, spent three months in the neonatal incubator, and cost San Joaquin Hospital more than $300,000. Meanwhile, (Felipa’s 19-year-old daughter) Lourdes plus her illegal alien husband produced their own anchor baby, Esmeralda. Grandma Felipa created a second anchor baby, Cristian. … The two Silverio anchor babies generate $1,000 per month in public welfare funding. Flor gets $600 per month for asthma. Healthy Cristian gets $400. Cristobal and Felipa last year earned $18,000 picking fruit. Flor and Cristian were paid $12,000 for being anchor babies.”

In the Silverios’ munificent new hometown of Stockton, Calif., 70 percent of the 2,300 babies born in 2003 in the San Joaquin General Hospital were anchor babies. As of this month, Stockton is $23 million in the hole.

It’s bad enough to be governed by 5-4 decisions written by liberal judicial activists. In the case of “anchor babies,” America is being governed by Brennan’s 1982 footnote.


The above graciously lifted from Ann Coulter. Because I bet you didn’t know.


Gratuitous Lefty Talk Radio

Ann Coulter, not one to shy away from interviews in hostile territory, sits down with Jorge Ramos on Fusion TV.

Below is a snippet of the interview that Lefty talk show host and FOX News contributor Leslie Marshall asked about.

I gave her my thoughts on her Facebook page. So far, she has expressed none of her own. Except to chant “bigotry,” “white supremacy,” and “disgusting rhetoric” about an honest and open conversation that Leslie apparently does not want to have.

Leslie Marshall

Below is a “dialog” constructed from her Facebook page. My replies are in italics. From her? Crickets.

Leslie Marshall: “‎AnnCoulter says ‪‎Immigrants Are More Dangerous Than ISIS‬, Tell me your thoughts”

1. What is your reaction when you hear these comments?

She is right.

2. “We can share our culture with other nations without bringing all of their people here. When you bring the people here, you bring those cultures here.” Isn’t that the essence of the United States of America‬? (What is the essence of Europe Leslie?)

Right again. This country has been a ‘melting pot,’ where people come to America to realize their human potential as an American. But, as Ann suggests, when other cultures come here, not to be an American, but to use America within their own segregated culture, that’s not what America is all about. That’s what happens when the melting pot melts.

3. What will Ann Coulter be saying when the Hispanic community is the majority and white people are the minority?

She’s already said it. Leave open borders and unregulated immigration and there won’t be America as we know it. Immigration should be for the benefit of Americans, and not serve as the Welfare Office or safe-house for the third world and corrupt regimes.

4. Where does this type of white supremacy stem from?

You call national pride White supremacy? Shame on you.

5. What would this country look like if this type of cancerous bigotry existed when millions immigrated from Ireland, Italy, Germany, etc? Oh wait, it did!! Then shouldn’t we understand the detrimental effect of these attitudes?

She’s already said it. Leave open borders and unregulated immigration and there won’t be America as we know it. Immigration should be for the benefit of Americans, and not serve as the Welfare Office or safe-house for the third world and corrupt regimes.

6. What percentage of the Republican party do you think agrees with Ann Coulter?

That’s irrelevant. The question is what percentage of the American people don’t like America and/or have no clue about America, except for what they can get the government to give them? Has nothing to do with the Republican Party.

7. Does Coulter spew this disgusting rhetoric just to get noticed? Or does she actually believe this garbage?

Since when does being proud of your country, nationalist pride, become “disgusting rhetoric?” Oh, since the Democrat Party’s goal became melting the melting pot. We look at other countries’ people being proud of their country and think it is charming. But to be proud of America makes you evil? That’s a purely political reaction.

8. Do you empathize with the situation that immigrants face? What is the best way to assimilate them into U.S. culture?

Immigrate legally. Don’t break the law. If you want to immigrate here to use America instead of become an American, then you’re not assimilating. Besides, fleeing a dysfunctional and corrupt country like Mexico will not fix the problem. Using the United States as Mexico’s “safe room” will not fix the problem either. The U.S. has every right to defend its borders as Mexico, or any other country, does.

 Here’s the solution:
