Jackson Lee: It’s Selfish For US To Deny Illegals Amnesty

From Breitbart:

Sheila Jackson Lee: ‘Selfish’ for America to Deny Illegals Amnesty, Work Permits

By Tony Lee | November 18, 2014

On Tuesday, Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) said President Barack Obama’s forthcoming unilateral action on immigration is not “amnesty” and declared that America would be “selfish” to deny illegal immigrants temporary work permits and amnesty.

Governments are supposed to be selfish about protecting their citizens. For instance, governments are suppose to let their citizens get jobs instead of foreigners.

Speaking on the House floor, Jackson Lee, who handed out candy to illegal immigrant juveniles this summer at detention centers, mentioned that Texas has 1.3 [million] illegal immigrants and said she loves “living in a country that is known around the world for its humanitarian generosity.” …

A country that already admits more legal immigration than the rest of the countries in the world combined.

Obama To Give Amnesty To ‘Parents’ In US For 5 Years

From a joyous Reuters:

Obama to ease immigration rules on millions of undocumented: source

By Richard Cowan | November 18, 2014

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. President Barack Obama is poised to give relief from deportation to millions of undocumented immigrants who are parents of U.S. citizens or of permanent legal residents, according to a source familiar with White House deliberations.

This sentence is a blatant lie that the media constantly repeats. As the former head of ICE under Obama told the LA Times, someone who hasn’t committed murder or rape has a zero chance of being deported. (And even murders and rapists still get released by ICE.)

The truth is, Obama has already ended deportations with some of his previous (illegal) executive orders.

Obama has promised to lay out the details of an executive order on immigration.

Most O-Care Support On Facebook Was From Paid Trolls

From the Washington Times:

Obamacare Facebook page comments mostly from small group of supporters

By Kelly Riddell | November 16, 2014

… [More than] sixty percent… of the 226,838 comments [on the official Obamacare Facebook page] generated from September 2012 to early last month can be attributed to fewer than 100 unique profiles, according to an analysis completed by The Washington Times with assistance from an outside data analytics team. Many of those profiles belong to just one person who created multiple aliases or personas to widen her influence and multiply her voice.

Remember when the Obama campaign was caught doing the same thing with ‘letters to the editor’ back in January 2010? Does the name "Ellie Light" ring a bell? (Ms. ‘Light’ wrote dozens of identical “Letters to the Editor” in support of Obama that were published in dozens of local newspapers.

Earnest: Only Republicans Care About 8 Year-Old Videos

From Breitbart:

Earnest on Gruber: Only Far Right Cares About Six-Year-Old Videos

Nov 18, 2014

Tuesday, White House press secretary Josh Earnest defended President Barack Obama’s reaction to now-infamous ObamaCare architect Jonathan Gruber’s comments referring to the stupidity of the American voter by calling it “old political arguments” and saying “it’s easier to talk about six- and eight- year-old videos” than the success of the Affordable Care Act."

Fuller quote:

"My suspicion is they do so because it’s easier to talk about six and eight year old videos than it is to talk about how smoothly the opening of the second open enrollment period has gone so far or to talk about the millions who have gotten health care as a result of the Affordable Care Act…"

How stupid does Josh Earnest think we are?

What Working Together? Democrats Vote Down Keystone

From the Associated Press:

No on Keystone pipeline — but GOP vows replay

By DAVID ESPO and DINA CAPPIELLO | November 18, 2014

WASHINGTON (AP) — In a combustible blend of oil and politics, the Democratic-controlled Senate rejected legislation Tuesday night to force completion of the Keystone XL Pipeline. Republicans vowed to resurrect the controversial issue soon after taking two-house control of Congress in January.

The 59-41 Senate vote was one short of the 60 needed to clear the House-passed measure, and marked a severe blow to embattled Sen. Mary Landrieu of Louisiana. While President Barack Obama and much of her party oppose the bill, the third-term Democrat had commandeered control of the chamber’s agenda in hopes of securing approval of the project and boosting her chances in an uphill Dec.

Obama’s ‘Step-Grandmother’ In US To Promote Schools

From a swooning Associated Press:

Obama’s step-grandmother in US to promote schools

By EDITH M. LEDERER | November 17, 2014

UNITED NATIONS (AP) — Barack Obama’s 94-year-old step-grandmother is in the United States this week to promote her dream of a modern education and health complex in the western Kenyan village where the president’s father was raised and is buried — and hopes to see the president again.

Sarah Obama, who was married to the president’s late grandfather, said in an interview through an interpreter on Monday that she had "a vision" sitting under her favorite mango tree in the tiny village of Kogelo in 2013 of a legacy that would continue her work helping children and live on long after she is gone.

This is the same woman who claims she clearly remembers watching Obama be born in Kenya.

MO Declares Emergency, FBI Warns Of Violent Protesters

From a deeply concerned (that there might not be riots) Reuters:

Missouri governor declares state of emergency ahead of ruling on Ferguson shooting

By Scott Malone | November 17, 2014

FERGUSON Mo. (Reuters) – Missouri’s governor declared a state of emergency on Monday and authorized the state’s National Guard to support police in case of violence after a grand jury decides whether to indict a white police officer who fatally shot an unarmed black teenager… The order also puts the St. Louis County Police Department, rather than police in Ferguson, Missouri, in charge of policing protests.

Because the racist Ferguson police cannot be trusted.

But did Gov. Nixon agree to follow the protester’s ‘rules of engagement’? Which prohibit the police from having any unfair advantages, such as tear gas or rubber bullets or body armor or armored vehicles.

In 2006 Obama Said He Had ‘Stolen Ideas’ From Gruber

The latest installments from the hit new reality series that is Jonathan Gruber. First from the Washington Free Beacon:

Obama Flashback: ‘I’ve Stolen Ideas’ From Jonathan Gruber ‘Liberally’

November 17, 2014

During a Brookings Institution panel in April 2006, then-Sen. Barack Obama claimed he had “stolen” ideas from a gang of liberal economists and academics, including the now-infamous Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber.

“You have already drawn some of the brightest minds from academia and policy circles, many of them I have stolen ideas from liberally,” Obama said. “People ranging from Robert Gordon to Austan Goolsbee; Jon Gruber; my dear friend, Jim Wallis here, who can inform what are sometimes dry policy debates with a prophetic voice.” …

In fact, one could argue that Obama stole Obama-Care from Romney-Care, lock, stock and barrel.

WH Taunts GOP On Climate Change: ‘They Can’t Stop Us’

From the Washington Times:

White House taunts GOP on climate change: ‘I don’t believe they can stop us’

By Ben Wolfgang | November 17, 2014

The White House forged ahead Monday with yet another piece of its climate change agenda and bragged that Republicans are powerless to stop it.

A presidential task force unveiled a report on how communities across the country can prepare for the effects of global warming. In all, the recommendations on “climate preparedness and resilience” could cost the federal government more than $100 billion to protect drinking water supplies, shore up coastlines against rising sea levels and take other preventive measures…

So Obama is going to squander $100 billion dollars of taxpayers money to prepare for something that is not even happening.

NYT: Executive Order Amnesty Is A Flip-Flop For Obama

From the New York Times of all places:

For Obama, Executive Order on Immigration Would Be a Turnabout

By MICHAEL D. SHEAR | November 17, 2014

WASHINGTON — President Obama is poised to ignore stark warnings that executive action on immigration would amount to “violating our laws” and would be “very difficult to defend legally.” Those warnings came not from Republican lawmakers but from Mr. Obama himself.

For years, he has waved aside the demands of Latino activists and Democratic allies who begged him to act on his own, and he insisted publicly that a decision to shield millions of immigrants from deportation without an act of Congress would amount to nothing less than the dictates of a king, not a president.

In a Telemundo interview in September 2013, Mr.

USA Today: 42% Want Obama ‘To Act Now’ On Amnesty

From USA Today:

Poll: Resistance to Obama order on immigration

By Susan Page | November 17, 2014

WASHINGTON — President Obama’s plan to sign an executive order on immigration, expected as early as this week, will meet more resistance than support, a new USA TODAY Poll finds. Close to half of those surveyed, 46%, say he should wait for the new Republican-controlled Congress to act, and another one in 10 are unconvinced either way. Just 42% of Americans say he should take action now, findings that reflect a familiar partisan divide between Democrats and Republicans…

Was this poll taken subcontracted by La Raza?

But on an interesting combination of other issues, the poll finds sweeping consensus in an electorate that isn’t firmly tied to the views of either party.

GOP Moderate: No Short-Term CR, Christie: ‘Compromise’

From Reuters:

Republican moderate urges Congress to avoid short-term spending bill

By David Lawder | November 17, 2014

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – An influential House Republican moderate on Monday pushed back against an effort by conservatives to use a short-term spending extension to try to stop President Barack Obama from easing immigration policies.

House of Representatives Appropriations Committee Chairman Hal Rogers urged Congress instead to pass a full-fledged government spending bill that lasts until Sept. 30, 2015. To do otherwise would be "punting" on important duties and put the United States "on an uncertain and unstable fiscal path," Rogers wrote in an opinion piece published by the Roll Call newspaper.

What is a more important duty than preserving the United States as we know it?

"Worst of all, it would send a signal to the American people, just weeks after they told us to get our acts together, that we haven’t been listening," the Kentucky Republican wrote…

Dems To Obama: Delay Amnesty Until We Pass A Budget

From The Hill:

Democrats press Obama to wait on immigration executive action

By Alexander Bolton | November 18, 2014

President Obama has a tough decision to make on the timing of an executive order to freeze deportations of illegal immigrants.

And never mind that there is already a freeze on the deportation of illegal aliens thanks to Obama’s previous (illegal) executive orders. But that is how this bill is being sold. When, in reality, it is only a move to get these illegal aliens on the voter rolls. 

Senate Democrats want him to wait to give them time to pass an omnibus spending bill and other legislative priorities in the lame-duck session that is just now ramping up.

In other words, the Democrats want Obama to wait until they have gotten a budget for 2015, so the Republicans won’t be able to stop Obama’s amnesty by defunding it.

LAT Flashback: High Deportation Figures Are Misleading

From the April 2014 archives of the Los Angeles Times, of all places:

High deportation figures are misleading

By Brian Bennett | April 1, 2014

WASHINGTON — Immigration activists have sharply criticized President Obama for a rising volume of deportations, labeling him the "deporter in chief" …

But… a closer examination shows that immigrants living illegally in most of the continental U.S. are less likely to be deported today than before Obama came to office, according to immigration data.

Expulsions of people who are settled and working in the United States have fallen steadily since his first year in office, and are down more than 40% since 2009.

On the other side of the ledger, the number of people deported at or near the border has gone up — primarily as a result of changing who gets counted in the U.S.

Democrats Expect (Want) Obama To Veto Keystone Bill

From an unquestioning Reuters:

Democrats expect Obama to veto pipeline bill if it passes Senate

By Bill Trott | November 16, 2014

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – A Democratic leader said on Sunday a single vote could determine the fate of the Keystone XL pipeline in the U.S. Senate this week but that President Barack Obama was likely to veto the bill even if it passes.

Which is the only reason any Democrats (outside of Mary Landrieu) would vote for the Keystone bill in the first place. But this is how the Democrats and Obama try to hoodwink the ‘stupid’ American public, day in and day out.

The Republican-led U.S. House of Representatives on Friday approved the pipeline, which would carry oil from Canada to refineries on the U.S.
