Bring Us Your Poor

Hillary Clinton claimed that, at the moment she and her husband were signing up for $18 million in book deals, that they were “dead broke.”

Harry Reid (who lives in the Ritz-Carlton Hotel) said liberals are getting bullied by Republican billionaires but the Democratic Party “doesn’t have many billionaires” behind it.

Joe Biden (family earnings: $407,000 last year plus a free house, driver, meals, etc.) claims he “I don’t own a single stock or bond. . . . I have no savings accounts . . . I’m the poorest man in Congress.” (Triple fail: Joe isn’t poor, isn’t in Congress and wouldn’t be the poorest member of it if he were.)

Right here in New York, we’ve learned that City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito, the daughter of a wealthy doctor who left a $6.7 million inheritance, took advantage of a no-interest loan intended for underprivileged New Yorkers to buy a Harlem townhouse. Then she forgot to declare the rental income on required city disclosure forms. The townhouse you and I helped buy her for $240,000 is today worth $1.2 million.

The more Democrats insist on their proletarian cred, the more absurd it gets. They’re no longer just holier than thou: Now they’re prolier than thou.

“Half a century later, Sir Alex Ferguson remains Old Labour in speech, if not always in deed, and talks with sincere warmth and lack of prolier-than-though piety (his family were blessed, he points out, with an inside toilet) about his upbringing.”

So you can’t have Millionaire and Billionaires (1%ers) proclaiming they do everything for the poor and that only they understand them, can you? 🙂

The fact that the richest people in Congress are mostly Democrats…And that Democrats ideas for “helping” the poor hurt the poor. But yet they still vote for them?

Fascinating.

Reid is worth about $3 million to $6 million and declined to release his tax returns even as he was screaming about Mitt Romney’s. His statement that “we don’t have many billionaires” was wrong too. Politifact dug up 22 billionaires who have made campaign donations to super PACs lately. Most of them — 13 — sent their checks to liberal and Democratic groups.

And we’ll forget about his shady land deals too…. 🙂
Biden may have been the poorest member of the Senate (not all of Congress) when he was there, but his net worth is still somewhere in the $39,000 to $800,000 range, reported the Center for Responsive Politics.

Why do all these exceedingly well-off people keep trying to convince us we’ll see them at the dollar store?

Bill Clinton even said he “grocery shops” once a week. Yeah, that happens…

It’s all part of the increasingly delusional myth Democrats tell themselves that they are the tribunes of the middle class. In fact, their party is a strange two-headed beast — picture a Cerberus featuring the faces of Barbra Streisand and Lois Lerner.

They have to believe they are vastly superior to the “evil” that is anyone who isn’t them. So they must be better than what they say the “other side” is. Problem is, they aren’t.

That’s where Orwell’s Doublethink comes in. And the media campaign to convince blacks, poor people and the average middle class moron that they are the “enlightened” when in fact they are the darkness.

The Dems are a coalition of ultra-rich cultural-elite donors on the one hand and government employees and their clients on the other. In 2012, President Obama carried those earning under $50,000 by a wide margin. But Romney easily bested him among those over that threshold.

Ever wonder why the Democrats seem to want to keep people poor?

Or are so in favor of Open Borders.

But there’s another reason Democrats can’t talk about their wealth. It’s because they can’t say, “I made it big. Follow me and you can, too.”

Because that’s too Republican. The American Dream is vastly more Republican than these Democrats can admit to, so they don’t.

They just go with “Vote for me, The other guy’s an asshole” and the dumb asses fall for it.

Democrats earn their money in ways that aren’t available to most Americans. Yet even for Democrats, the Clintons got rich in an exotic way. They accumulated something like $100 million not by building a business or inventing something or even writing some hit songs. Their entire fortune came from political celebrity. (Their daughter has even accumulated $15 million by being the offspring of political celebrities. Or did you think NBC News paid her $600,000 a year because of her obvious broadcasting ability?)

If the Clintons had gotten rich inventing Facebook, that fortune would have spawned many others. But celebrity honoraria don’t work that way.

Drug dealers create more middle-class jobs than these people do.

So does the “evil” Oil Industry in North Dakota. 🙂

Moreover, both Clintons have given so many speeches to big-bucks interest groups that there are legions of fat cats who think Hillary owes them a favor should she reach the White House.

No, Hillary, contra your interview in The Guardian, you didn’t strike it rich by “hard work.” Swanning around the world staying in five-star hotels, reading speeches drafted by someone else and signing your name to books written by someone else is not exactly quarry labor. (NYP)

But Vote For me in 2016, because the Republican will be a rich, poor-hating,homophobic,racist,misogynist who hates all of humanity and only care about fat-cat millionaires and Corporate CEOs who just want oppress you and make money!…

Not the Democrats. 🙂

Surprise!

The Wall Street Journal this week reported on a new analysis of the pool of newly-insured customers under Obamacare. The takeaway: new customers are on the whole sicker than the previously-insured.

 

People enrolled in new plans under the health law are showing higher rates of serious health conditions than other insurance customers, according to an early analysis of medical claims, putting pressure on insurers around the country as they prepare to propose rates for next year.

Among those health-law marketplace enrollees who have seen a doctor or other health-care provider in the first quarter of this year, around 27% have significant health issues such as diabetes, psychiatric conditions, asthma, heart problems or cancer, the data show. That is sharply higher than the rate of 16% for last year’s individual-consumer market over the same time frame, according to the data, which was supplied by Inovalon Inc., a health-technology firm that receives medical claims directly from nearly 200 insurers that are its clients.

It is also more than double the rate among people who held on to their existing individual policies; among those enrollees, the rate was 12%. Those consumers, who kept so-called grandfathered individual plans, are showing by far the lowest rates of use for health-care services such as emergency-room visits, hospital stays and prescriptions.

 

To a certain extent, this makes sense, as one of the main priorities of Obamacare was to insure the very sick, uninsurable population. However, the mix is key: Obamacare was also supposed to draw in enough “young invincibles” – the young people who didn’t have insurance because they weren’t accruing many health costs – to balance it out.

Lanhee Chen, a research fellow at the Hoover Institution, writes of the news:

 

This outcome should not surprise anyone. The law’s one-size-fits-all regulatory regime, which requires insurers to offer coverage to all comers and prohibits pricing of coverage based on an applicant’s health status, was bound to increase the number of relatively sicker people purchasing insurance through the exchanges. Moreover, Obama’s executive action, which effectively allowed many people who had individual market plans to remain in them through at least 2016, bifurcated the insurance markets such that healthier people remained in the plans they already had, while relatively sicker patients were left to acquire coverage through the Affordable Care Act’s exchanges.

The data portend a vigorous debate over the “risk corridors” program, which is one of three mechanisms in the law designed to give insurers incentives to continue to participate in its exchanges even if they are at risk of significant financial losses. Some Republicans, particularly Senator Marco Rubio of Florida, Senator Jeff Sessions of Alabama and Representative Fred Upton of Michigan, have decried this program as an insurer bailout.

Obamacare’s risk corridors are there in order to try to counteract the death spiral: it’s a way for the federal government to compensate private insurers for higher-than-expected health costs and hopefully keep premiums down.

The flipside of that is that if it turns out that the pool of newly-insured are indeed significantly sicker and the risk corridors must be leaned upon, Obamacare becomes much, much more expensive to taxpayers.

SURPRISE! 🙂

Opportunity

According to a major new report from the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS), net employment growth in the United States since 2000 has gone entirely to immigrants, legal and illegal. Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, CIS scholars Steven A. Camarota and Karen Zeigler found that there were 127,000 fewer working-age natives holding a job in the first quarter of 2014 than in 2000, while the number of immigrants with a job was 5.7 million above the 2000 level.

The rapidity with which immigrants recovered from the Great Recession, as well as the fact that they held a disproportionate share of jobs relative to their share of population growth before the recession, help to explain their findings, the authors report. In addition, native-born Americans and immigrants were affected differently by the recession.

Other significant findings include:

  • Because the native-born population grew significantly, but the number working actually fell, there were 17 million more working-age natives not working in the first quarter of 2014 than in 2000.
  • The share of natives working or looking for work, referred to as labor force participation, shows the same decline as the employment rate. In fact, labor force participation has continued to decline for working-age natives even after the jobs recovery began in 2010.
  • Immigrants have made gains across the labor market, including lower-skilled jobs such as maintenance, construction, and food service; middle-skilled jobs like office support and health care support; and high­er-skilled jobs, including management, computers, and health care practitioners.
  • The supply of potential workers is enormous: 8.7 million native college graduates are not working, as are 17 million with some college, and 25.3 million with no more than a high school education.

According to the study, 58 million working-age natives are not employed.

Camarota and Zeigler report three conclusions:

  • First, the long-term decline in the employment for natives across age and education levels is a clear in­dication that there is no general labor shortage, which is a primary justification for the large increases in immigration (skilled and unskilled) in the Schumer-Rubio bill and similar House proposals.
  • Second, the decline in work among the native-born over the last 14 years of high immigration is consis­tent with research showing that immigration reduces employment for natives.
  • Third, the trends since 2000 challenge the argument that immigration on balance increases job oppor­tunities for natives. Over 17 million immigrants arrived in the country in the last 14 years, yet native employment has deteriorated significantly.

The Center for Immigration Studies is a non-profit research institute. Founded in 1985, the organization is regularly consulted by policymakers, the academic community, and the media on matters of immigration policy. (NRO)

“We’re at the end of the line,” Sen. Robert Menendez (D-N.J.) said Thursday during a press briefing in the Capitol. “We’re not bluffing by setting a legislative deadline for them to act.

“Their first job is to govern,” Menendez added, “and in the absence of governing, then you see executive actions.”

Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) piled on. Noting that a year has passed since the Senate passed a sweeping immigration reform bill with broad bipartisan support, he urged House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) to bring a similar bill to the floor.

“I don’t know how much more time he thinks he needs, but I hope that Speaker Boehner will speak up today,” Durbin said. “And if he does not, the president will borrow the power that is needed to solve the problems of immigration.” (The Hill)

Amnesty by Fiat. Gee, no one saw that coming…:)

Immigration: Borders serve governmental purposes — sometimes good, sometimes evil. Our failure to heed popular wishes to make the U.S. southern border impenetrable is now coming back to haunt us.

Faced with a shortage of men and military material, China found that turning to defense and building The Great Wall was a comparatively cheap way of restoring military and economic strength.

The Berlin Wall and other barriers erected by totalitarians protected communist regimes by preventing the massive emigration that would quickly have deprived them of the slaves without which they could not have operated.

Sharp-edged, steel-mesh double fences, high concrete walls and heavily militarized zones the length of several football fields were among the East-West border’s features. Most Hungarians weren’t even allowed within 10 miles of their own border.

In all cases, the governments were serious about stopping large numbers of people from going where they were highly motivated to go. The U.S. for years has demonstrated that it is not serious.

Walls could be built, even back during the Middle Ages, as China demonstrated. But in the 21st century, the greatest country in the history of the world can’t — or, more accurately, won’t — do it.

The nation is now faced with more than 52,000 Central American children arriving here since October. A backlog of more than 360,000 court cases of immigrants housed in military bases in three states is going to take years to resolve.

And as House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., on Wednesday reminded us, more than 90% of illegals simply “do not return for their hearings” after being processed.

Why would they bother? They pay no price if they don’t.

As Breitbart reports, swine flu is the latest health hazard that the influx has imported. Border criminals are increasingly adding the commodity of people to the drugs and weapons that they already smuggle into the U.S, with “stash houses” packing aliens like sardines. Hustling one person across the border can reportedly command as much as $7,000.

The word has gone out that all that the children have to do is get to America. Once here, they can just turn themselves in, with no worries that they will be sent back anytime soon. “If you go to the United States, your children can go to school,” one detained mother from Guatemala who had crossed into Texas told CNS News.

Traffickers have even been giving their cargo phony answers to give U.S. officials — they say they’re afraid of drug gangs, for example — that will allow them to stay.

The claims are “well-rehearsed, and it is a consistent story,” Rio Grande Border Patrol agent and agents’ union official Albert Spratte told the Blaze. “We can’t even get them to answer their name before they tell us the gangs were the reason they fled their country.”These are the people on whose behalf the Obama administration has the gall to ask Americans to send thousands of “white 100% cotton men’s briefs” in various sizes.

Amnesty-based immigration “reform” is now, thankfully, dead in the wake of the crisis on the border, according to lawmakers on both sides of the issue.

Meanwhile, making our border impenetrable is a priority that should be more alive than ever. But we know of few politicians who see this as the opportunity finally to do what we should have done many years ago: physically protect our country from invasion. (IBD)

“The humanitarian crisis unfolding across our nation’s southern border demands Congress come together and find thoughtful, compassionate and bipartisan solutions,” Pelosi said. “We must ensure our laws are fully enforced, so that due process is provided to unaccompanied children and the safety and well-being of unaccompanied children is protected. We must also work to address the root causes of the problem.”–Nancy Pelosi

Overwhelming

Immigration: A federal employment ad posted in January showing that 65,000 unaccompanied minors will enter the U.S. illegally shows that the administration expected this cross-border child abuse and encouraged it.

Concrete evidence has shown up proving our earlier assertion: The breach of our border by waves of unaccompanied alien children was orchestrated by the administration based on a strategy straight out of the playbook President Obama studied as a community organizer. His goal is to get his way on immigration reform by overwhelming the U.S. Border Patrol and collapsing an already weakened system.

The evidence comes in the form a government contract solicited in January by the Department of Homeland Security. The listing asked for “Escort Services for Unaccompanied Alien Children” in expectation of the arrival of 65,000 minors on our southern border without their parents or guardians.

The operative language in the listing is the statement by DHS/Immigration and Customs Enforcement that they expect there “will be approximately 65,000” alien minors requiring assistance. This is a significant increase from the 5,000 minors who are detained by Immigration and Customs Enforcement annually. It also strongly suggests not only advance knowledge of the human catastrophe about to unfold but a lack of any effort to stop it.

Not only have the numbers vastly increased, but the points of origin have changed. No longer are we talking about just poor Mexican families seeking a better life from an “act of love,” as one possible 2016 presidential candidate put it. Hondurans, Salvadorans and Guatemalans now make up about 75% of illegals caught in South Texas.

The number of children traveling without parents has overwhelmed Border Patrol detention centers along the Texas border, prompting officials to ship them to converted warehouses and military bases as far away as California. The situation is so bad that there is fear we would have no place to put American citizen refugees if another Hurricane Katrina occurs. Some have even called this alien-children invasion Obama’s Katrina.

This is no act of love, as children are transported by cartels and other human traffickers from Central America and then through 1,800 miles of difficult Mexican roads. They are subjected to the worst abuse along the way, then dumped across the border, where they huddle on warehouse floors in conditions ideal for the spread of infectious diseases.

Such a journey is made on the expectation that these children will not be turned away. At a House Homeland Security Committee hearing this week, committee Republicans noted three causes for this influx: Obama executive actions such as the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program; lax enforcement policies; and talk on both sides of the aisle of comprehensive immigration reform indistinguishable from amnesty.

As committee Chairman Rep. Michael McCaul noted in his opening statement:

“Newspapers in El Salvador and Honduras seem to be encouraging youth to head to the United States based on these policies. And recent internal DHS surveys of these children reveal that more than 70% believe they are going to stay in the country.”

This is a human tragedy of the administration’s making. ICE union boss Chris Crane testified last year at a House Judiciary Committee hearing, lodging complaints about the lawlessness behind the “nation’s broken immigration system.”

“ICE has essentially prohibited its agents from enforcing” immigration law, Crane said. “What message do ICE practices send to the world? The message is: ‘We don’t enforce our laws, come on over, and if you do get caught, just lie to us. Lie about the day and year you entered, lie about going to high school, you won’t be required to prove anything.'”

This is a humanitarian disaster as well a political outrage, and the Obama White House wanted it to happen. (IBD)

SURPRISE! 🙂

The hope for immigration reform this year has been sucked out of perhaps the most optimistic advocate on Capitol Hill: Rep. Luis Gutierrez.

In a fiery floor speech Wednesday, the Illinois Democrat – the leading congressional advocate on the issue – declared the prospects for reform dead this year and said the only option left is for President Barack Obama to take unilateral action to stem deportations.

Using an analogy from the World Cup, Gutierrez said he had already given a “yellow card” to the House GOP as a warning that if they continued to drag their feet on immigration reform, Obama would move on deportation relief on his own.

Gutierrez had called on Republicans to produce immigration reform legislation before the Fourth of July recess, which begins next week. Other Democrats on Capitol Hill have pressured the GOP to move on immigration bills by August.

“I gave you the warning three months ago, and now I have no other choice,” he said. “You’re done. You’re done. Leave the field, too many flagrant offenses and unfair attacks. You’re out. Hit the showers. It’s the red card.”

“Your chance to play a role in how immigration and deportation policies are carried out this year are over,” he declared. “Having given ample time to craft legislation, you failed.” (Politico)

Do it our way or else! 🙂

So I give the last word today to Arizona’s Idiot Savant (mostly idiot):

“I can’t tell you … that we have a great shot at it, but I know the consequences of failure, which will motivate me to continue to try no matter what,” said Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), pointing to the need for his party to make inroads with Latino voters. “You can do the demographics, I can show you the math of the rise and influence of the Hispanic voter not only across the southwest but in other parts of the country as well.” (Politico)

What a moron. No wonder they can hide their agenda in plain sight with people as sharp as that in charge… 😦

An Earnest White House

I have been quietly waiting for this one. Knowing eventually the never-wrong, always- someone-else’s-fault-for-our-mess Democrats would get around to it, eventually.

After previously saying America’s borders are more secure than ever, the White House on Tuesday seemingly blamed Republicans for apparent holes along the southern boundary, evidenced by the flood of unaccompanied children streaming into the U.S. from Mexico, Central America and elsewhere.

White House press secretary Josh Earnest challenged Republicans, if they are truly concerned about border security, to back the comprehensive immigration reform package that passed the Senate last year and is strongly supported by President Obama.


“If we really wanted to solve this problem, one good way to do it is for those Republicans to get on board … and support common sense immigration reform,” Mr. Earnest told reporters.

aka AMNESTY. Do what we want you to do and everything will be solved. 🙂

Mr. Earnest also said the administration has made a “historic commitment” to border security over the past five years, but the White House last week announced a new surge of resources to combat the stream of illegal immigrants.

Orwell is smiling upon you my son.

It’s all your fault, you Raci$ts! If you just did everything we ask, when we asked, without question, then there wouldn’t be any problem!

So when will this be Bush’s Fault? 🙂

“Death trains” rumbling through Mexico teeming with children, headed for the U.S. border. Teenage girls raped. Unspeakable violence at the hands of ruthless coyotes, carrying out President Obama’s stunningly reckless new foreign policy.

Of course, Mr. Obama did not issue a formal edict inviting each of the tens of thousands of children pouring over the border from Mexico. He didn’t have to. His executive action legalizing underage illegals in the U.S. was all the invitation they needed. And come they did.

At this hot pace, we will have more than a quarter-million orphaned children on the border by the end of next year — each and every one the sole responsibility of Mr. Obama.

Actions have consequences, Mr. President. And executive actions have executive consequences. You are personally responsible for the harrowing condition of every one of these children. You are personally responsible for ripping apart every single one of these families.

Mr. Obama and congressional Democrats have pursued amnesty for illegals hoping for millions of indentured voters — poor new Americans they believe will feel obligated to vote for Democrats for decades to come. Yes, a sick political gambit.

The End justifies the means. 🙂

But the underlying immigration and foreign policies will be devastating.


Under this kind of open-borders lunacy, America’s immigration policy is no longer about what is best for America and Americans. Under Mr. Obama, America’s immigration policy is about what is best for everybody in the world — except America.

And NEW WELFARE DEMOCRATS to vote for their “saviors”. 🙂

This posture turns the Bush-Cheney foreign doctrine completely on its head. Their philosophy was that the U.S. should fight terrorists abroad so that we don’t have to fight them on American soil.

A who cares about Terrorists coming across the border, certainly not Democrats. After all, the only real terrorists they see are “Baggers”. 🙂

The Nobel Prize-winning Obama-Biden foreign policy is to just take the absolute worst problems from all around the world and bring them here. We can’t handle them either, but let’s just make them our problem.

And what is so amazing about it is that the very people who are hurt the worst under this policy are the various factions of the Democratic Party that put Mr. Obama and his political allies in power in the first place. Countless studies have shown that such a mass influx of poor workers will hurt mainly blacks, unions, other Hispanics and the working poor. Pretty much the only ones to benefit from amnesty will be business owners and big corporations hungry for cheap labor.

And Democrats for cheap voters.

Efforts to sweep the problem under the rug have blown up in the administration’s face.

A former monastery in the heart of Obama country outside Chicago was identified as a good place to house the illegal orphans. The Chicago media went along and kept the story hush-hush until word leaked and an Illinois blog posted a story about it. After a firestorm over social media, the plan was scrapped.

Another effort met a similar demise after the administration and their Democratic allies in the Senate quietly plotted to house the illegal orphans at a shuttered school in rural Brunswick County, Virginia. More than 1,000 people showed up at a meeting to protest.

That is a pretty adamant showing for a town of fewer than 1,500 residents — and pretty scary for Democrats, considering that Mr. Obama carried Brunswick County by more than 25 percentage points in 2012.

As one resident told representatives of the federal government: “Please take your [unaccompanied alien children] and relocate them to D.C., where you can keep a very close eye on their welfare and keep them out of our backyard.” (WP)

But don’t worry, The Democrats will just consider them back country raci$ts and low country morons who don’t understand that Liberals are your superiors and they know better than you on EVERYTHING.

After all, if you just did everything they wanted, when they wanted, because they wanted and just did as you are told there wouldn’t be a problem. 🙂

They are Homo Superior Liberalis, they are just morally and intellectual superior to you low country, greedy, nasty ass raci$ts! 🙂

The Barrage

Central American leaders have taken to lecturing the U.S. on the care and feeding of the tens of thousands of their emigrants who have suddenly flooded our southern border. Have they no shame?

Apparently they don’t, though the Spanish language has a very strong word — sinverguenza — for such gall.

Start with Honduras President Juan Orlando Hernandez. After 37,049 of his countrymen were repatriated by the U.S. after fleeing in 2013, he told Fusion: “I’ve asked the United States government to treat this matter with the utmost care from a humanitarian perspective. They are kids in search of their parents, and they have the complete right to be with their parents.”

And where has he been the last eight days? Not in Honduras, where the crisis starts, but attending the World Cup in Brazil, in an eight-day extended vacation, missing a critical meeting last week with Vice President Joe Biden, who arrived with $254.6 million in free (for him) U.S. taxpayer cash for the region.

Ambassador Jorge Milla Reyes went his boss one better by declaring that the U.S. had probably violated “international treaties” in its handling of tens of thousands of his fleeing countrymen, something that perturbed him in a way the conditions in his own country did not.

“We have serious doubts about the possibility of a violation of some norms reflected in international treaties,” he told Reuters, without specifying which treaties the U.S. may have violated.

Then there was the Salvadoran ambassador to the U.S., Ruben Zamora. After 21,602 of his countrymen were deported from the states in 2013, he declared that the U.S. must respect “the universal rights” of the tens of thousands of unaccompanied minors — who have fled the horrors of his country.

Less offensive was the Guatemalan ambassador, Julio Ligorria. He admitted to Univision over the weekend that “it’s essentially lack of opportunities” in his own country that is driving his people north.

And that gets to the nub of it — the absence of working economies in these purported popular (and leftist) democracies.

On the Heritage Foundation’s 2013 Index of Economic Freedom, Honduras ranked a miserable No. 96 out of 177 countries, below the world average. Labor freedom in particular was low, meaning job creation is all but nil.

El Salvador ranked No. 53, with high corruption and a downtrend since the election of a leftist government hostile to capitalism, while Guatemala ranked No. 85. What’s more, these three nations are absolutely dependent on remittances as lifelines to their low-growth economies.

In El Salvador, remittances comprise 16.5% of GDP, in Honduras, 15.7% and in Guatemala, 10% — far higher percentages than other Latin countries, according to the Pew Research Hispanic Trends Project.

With facts on the ground like these, the only appropriate retort to such shameless leaders and envoys is what now-retired Spanish King Juan Carlos famously told Hugo Chavez: “Porque no te callas?” — why don’t you shut up?

Why would they, Obama is bribing them to continue the barrage. Gotta have all those new Welfare Democrats!

Oops! There is go being “raci$t” again! Silly me…
