“I don’t want us to do something just for the sake of politics that doesn’t solve the problem,” Obama told reporters Wednesday night aboard Air Force One.
Is he talking about his Health Care Reform?
Cap & Trade?
Or Illegal Immigration?
Or All of the Above?
It was Illegal Immigration, but it would be nearly impossible to tell with this President since everything is done for the ideology and nothing else.
Rep. Luis Gutierrez, the Democrats’ leading advocate for immigration reform, has said he voted for health care reform on the understanding that Obama and congressional Democrats would move a major immigration bill.
“On one hand you are not going to vote because you don’t believe people you voted for are doing a good enough job,” Gutierrez said. “Then you say, ‘I got to vote, because the enemy is so mean and vindictive, I got to get out there.'”
“For Democrats it is critical they can deliver if they want to continue nurturing the support they want from this community,” said Clarissa Martinez De Castro, National Council of La Raza immigration and national campaigns director.
By the Way, La Raza, “The Race” advocates Aztlan, the repatriation of parts of the Southwest with Mexico because they were stolen by the White Man.
But the politicians don’t have the political will to do anything.
Which is precisely the problem.
And yelling “racist” and “Nazi” is all the proponents of Illegal Immigration can seem to muster.
And the Fifth Column/Ministry of Truth can’t get their facts straight, because they don’t want to.
And calls for self-righteous boycotts.
The All-Star Game is apparently here in July (I don’t follow sports much so I had no idea).
And just how far are the Democrats willing to go to win in November?
Well, since The End Justifies the Means, how about a new State, full of hispanics and 2 new Senators?
Faced with losing Congress, the Democrats want to make Puerto Rico a state whether the people want it or not. The Democrats would get two new senators, new congressmen and a campaign issue.
Throw in voting representation for D.C., amnesty for illegals and voting for felons, all items on the Democrats’ agenda, and in their cookbook you have a recipe for Democratic majorities as far as the eye can see. It’s a plan to retain control at all costs and counteract a Tea Party movement that threatens to throw their big-government liberalism on the ash heap of political history.
You also have the added bonus of energizing Hispanic activists all too eager with administration help to paint the GOP as racists, particularly in the light of the new Arizona law that does nothing but say that since the feds dropped the ball on border security, Arizona will pick it up and run with it.
A scheduled Thursday vote in the House of Representatives on HR 2499, dubbed the Puerto Rico Democracy Act, was designed to rig the game in favor of Puerto Rican statehood, something native Puerto Ricans have rejected in the last three self-determination elections. Puerto Ricans like their current status just fine. Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Democratic leaders do not.
HR 2499 would not make Puerto Rico a state. It would split the past voting process into the two parts. The first would be an up-or-down vote on whether Puerto Ricans simply want to change their island’s status from a commonwealth in association with the U.S. instead of an up-or-down vote on statehood in the past.
Democrats hope enough people favor independence or statehood to cobble together a majority in favor of status change. Once the first hurdle is cleared, a second vote will determine what the new status should be with the choices being commonwealth, statehood or independence.
This is where the Democrats’ subversion of the democratic process begins. The second vote winner is determined by a mere plurality of one of the choices. Under this plan, if statehood just finishes in the lead, it wins, even without a clear majority.
It gets better. Under HR 2499, nonresident Puerto Ricans living in the 50 states could vote in the new referendum. According to the U.S. Census, there are more eligible Puerto Ricans living outside the proposed 51st state than in it.
So native Puerto Ricans could vote no on statehood while their mainland cousins could make it a yes. In case the vote is still no, HR 2499 requires a new referendum every eight years or until it becomes a yes in favor of statehood.(IBD)
Meanwhile, Al “Chicken Little” Gore just bought a 8.875 Million Dollar 9 Bathroom seaside Mansion, with multiple fireplaces, in California.
I guess Global Warming fraud does pay.
That’s some “carbon footprint” there Al!
And this as Campaign Barack said this on Financial reform:
We’re not, we’re not trying to push financial reform because we begrudge success that’s fairly earned. I mean, I do think at a certain point you’ve made enough money. But, you know, part of the American way is, you know, you can just keep on making it if you’re providing a good product or providing good service. We don’t want people to stop, ah, fulfilling the core responsibilities of the financial system to help grow our economy.
Oh well. I didn’t really need all that money I earn anyway. I’ll just keep “fulfilling the core responsibilities of the financial system to help grow our economy” and let Obama decide how to spend what I earn. It’s not like I have a family to provide for – that’s the government’s job – and my family has to be equal to everyone else’s, right? That’s fair. Fair for Obama’s Wall Street buddies, teacher union buddies and trial lawyer buddies that helped him to get elected.
And now he’s pandering to the Hispanic voters too.
Like we found out during the campaign, Obama likes to spread YOUR wealth around. Especially to people who vote for him.
I wonder if this applies to himself, after all he and Michelle made $5 Million dollars last year.
Oh, and the UN just put Iran on a Commission.
The Commission on the Status of Women, which is “dedicated exclusively to gender equality and advancement of women,” according to its website.
No, this is not a late April fools joke.
Buried 2,000 words deep in a U.N. press release distributed Wednesday on the filling of “vacancies in subsidiary bodies,” was the stark announcement: Iran, along with representatives from 10 other nations, was “elected by acclamation,” meaning that no open vote was requested or required by any member states — including the United States.
The U.S. currently holds one of the 45 seats on the body, a position set to expire in 2012. The U.S. Mission to the U.N. did not return requests for comment on whether it actively opposed elevating Iran to the women’s commission.
Iran’s election comes just a week after one of its senior clerics declared that women who wear revealing clothing are to blame for earthquakes, a statement that created an international uproar — but little affected their bid to become an international arbiter of women’s rights.
“Many women who do not dress modestly … lead young men astray, corrupt their chastity and spread adultery in society, which (consequently) increases earthquakes,” said the respected cleric, Hojatoleslam Kazem Sedighi. (FOX)
And they got this post after they couldn’t get on the UN Human Rights Commission!
So I guess the President’s strategy is to do nothing, as long as it works for your ideology. Screw the consequences.
And when it is for your ideology, The End Justifies the Means.
Now doesn’t that make you feel safer and more secure in the knowledge that he has America’s and the American people’s best interests at heart…. 😦
Just don’t make too much money, want to secure the border, or be in control of your life and responsible for your own actions.
That’s the government’s job! 🙂
Otherwise, you’re just a greedy, mean, selfish, racist.
And you should be ashamed of yourself!
