Criminal Congress

Apparently, Congress isn’t getting the message.  They aren’t listening to the people who have allowed them free reign for far too long, believing, as elected officials, they will do their job to the best of their ability.  Well, they don’t.  Little of what they do these days is in the best interest of the country, or her citizens.  LEGAL citizens, and LEGAL residents!

Right on the Senate’s own web site, they have the oath they take when they take office:

I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.

The House:

“I, (name of Member), do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God” (5 U.S.C. §3331).

I don’t know about y’all, but I do believe they have violated their oaths of office.  They have NOT faithfully discharged their duties, which includes securing the borders of this nation to keep the people safe from invasion.  And we have an invasion alright!  Invaders from all nations of the world are coming into our country, illegally, whether through our airports, or our ports, or…as have SO many…across our southern border which is where we have a HUGE problem. 

People are dying, and they do nothing to stop it.  As a matter of fact, they encourage slaughter by illegally providing weapons to the most evil among us.  Yet, no one has been held accountable.  Have those we entrusted with the safety of our nation just blown off the criminal activity?  Apparently. 

If their first concern was the safety of her citizens, they would NOT be allowing all those who have no respect for our laws a free walk.  When legal residents, and LEGAL citizens break the law, there are consequences.  When Congress allows criminal elements to walk across our borders, they are rewarded?  Does no one see the problem here?  Do our Senators and Representatives not understand?  THEY are breaking the law!!

Decision Time on Immigration
Amy Payne – The Foundry

Today is a pivotal day in the immigration debate: House Republicans are meeting to hash out their path.

Pressure is coming from all sides. The Senate passed the Gang of Eight’s “comprehensive” plan, and three groups on the right are urging the House to act. President Obama is meeting today with the Congressional Hispanic Caucus. House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) has said the House will not take up the same bill the Senate passed—but there is still a danger in trying to work with the Senate.

If the House simply tries to pass a bill so that it can come together with the Senate in conference—informal or formal—Congress will likely tinker around the edges of the Gang of Eight’s plan and give us the immigration version of Obamacare.

As Heritage experts have explained, Congress can address every major aspect of immigration reform and border security without a comprehensive bill.

The plan on the table has severe flaws—and besides, we can’t even trust that laws will be implemented as they’re supposed to be.

MR Corker Won’t Like Me

But ya know what?  I don’t give a flying flip!!

I originally wrote him, expressing my displeasure with the Gang of 8′s amnesty bill. You can call it what you want, but that’s what it is. He responded with this:

After thoroughly reviewing the committee-approved immigration bill, I worked to craft an amendment, along with Senator John Hoeven (R-N.D.), that would secure our nation’s border in a dramatic way.

Last week, we introduced a 114-page amendment that establishes an unprecedented surge of security on our country’s southern border, implements tough interior enforcement to curb de facto amnesty, and helps prevent abuse of federal benefits.

The amendment has drawn support from a number of notable conservative voices in the immigration debate.

Arizona Governor Jan Brewer declared the Hoeven-Corker border security amendment a “victory for Arizona.” Fox News host Bill O’Reilly endorsed the Hoeven-Corker efforts, as did former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee.

In order to adjust to lawful Registered Provisional Immigrant (RPI) status, unlawful immigrants would be required to pay a fine, pass criminal and national security background checks, and pay taxes for 10 years while receiving no access to federal benefits. Even then, only after ALL FIVE “triggers” of the Hoeven-Corker amendment have been fully implemented AND at least 10 YEARS have passed can RPIs apply for a green card and be placed at the back of the line. This is not amnesty.

Honestly, I don’t see the point in repeating what I’ve said many times before…Congress is guilty of aiding and abetting criminals!  The fact that the majority of them have NO idea what they are voting for, or against, makes it obvious, at least to me, that we have a government that doesn’t give a damn about the people in this country…NATIVE BORN AND LEGAL IMMIGRANTS.  Their job is make sure the borders are secure from invaders, and they have failed miserably!

I don’t believe any of them actually write these bills.  Oh, I think they throw in a few gimmes for their friends, but the meat is left to some flunky.  After that, they make up crap to feed the public, and we’re suppose to believe them.  Well, I don’t.  I don’t believe a damn word that comes out of ANY of their mouths!  I have NO confidence in them to EVER do the RIGHT thing for the nation. 

The Kind of Immigration Reform We Could Support
Amy Payne

The Senate voted yesterday to advance the Gang of Eight’s “comprehensive” immigration bill.

The big question in Washington: Did they even read the entire thing?

A new version of the bill came out on Friday, giving Senators and the American people just one weekend to look it over. Apparently, the Senate doesn’t feel it needs more time to debate such a sweeping piece of legislation that will cost taxpayers trillions of dollars. Now, final passage is expected in a couple of days.

WE Said NO!!!

Have you ever tried to reason with a toddler?  How about a teenager?  Using logic and facts just don’t work!  The same is true for Congress.  We talk, show them proof, give them facts, remind them repeatedly they work for us, and are in office only at OUR pleasure, and we can fire them in a heartbeat.  What is it going to take to get through to them?  An armed insurrection?

Let’s hope it doesn’t come to that, but at the rate D.C. has been ignoring WE, The People, they may end up finding themselves clapped in irons, awaiting trial. This country fought for its independence from a tyrant. Many died for that liberty we hold so dear. So, why is it that we’ve lost the will to battle for our freedom from the tyrants who have replaced King George? And that’s what they are, you know….tyrants. They want what THEY want, for THEIR benefit, and to hell with Joe Blow who is struggling to make ends meet, competing with millions of others whose jobs have vanished. Now, this Congress wants to bring in MILLIONS more, lower our standard of living, AND pay, put an even BIGGER burden on the taxpayer, and for what? Power. Plain and simple.

If they would do the job they were hired to do, follow the rules set out for them in the U.S. Constitution, realize they are limited in their powers, then we wouldn’t be having this conversation. The Ds know that once all this is shoved down our throats, they are pretty much guaranteed to have total control. The saddest part? There are way too many Rs, following along, lapping up their bullshit, making complete fools of themselves, and seriously PISSING off those who put them in office!

We have said no. We said no to Obamacare, and they shoved that bitter pill down our throats anyway. Now, we are seeing the horrors of that reckless, ill conceived bill that NO ONE bothered to read, but us. We write, we call, we post on blogs, Twitter, Facebook, and it doesn’t make a bit of difference. This is another bitter pill that is being fed to us, and the consequences are going to be even more devastating to this country. We might as well just hang it up, start from scratch, and put those RICH fat cats back in the private sector, permanently. Unfortunately, there are too many ignorant people who go into the voting booth, who will cheat lie and steal, to get their freebies…which are not free at all!

We are paying a high price for our complacency. Our children will be paying an even higher one. Giving a free pass to those who break our laws speaks volumes about the character of those in office. Integrity is lost. We no longer have men and women of honor representing us. They MUST be replaced if this nation is to survive.

10 Problems with the Gang of Eight Immigration Bill
Amy Payne & Kelsey Harris

The immigration debate barrels ahead in the Senate this week—and the Gang of Eight wants you to believe it’s a done deal.

The media and many Senators have been trumpeting a new amendment to the bill by Senators Bob Corker (R-TN), John Hoeven (R-ND) and Chuck Schumer (D-NY), saying it would fix the border security holes in the original legislation. But Heritage experts have explained why the amendment is deeply flawed and “does not even promise a reduction in illegal immigration.”

If the GOP is this stupid, it deserves to die
by Ann Coulter

Democrats terrify Hispanics into thinking they’ll be lynched if they vote for Republicans, and then turn around and taunt Republicans for not winning a majority of the Hispanic vote.

This line of attack has real resonance with our stupidest Republicans. (Proposed Republican primary targets: Sens. Kelly Ayotte, Jeff Flake, Lindsey Graham and Marco Rubio.) Which explains why Republicans are devoting all their energy to slightly increasing their share of the Hispanic vote while alienating everyone else in America.

It must be fun for liberals to manipulate Republicans into focusing on hopeless causes. Why don’t Democrats waste their time trying to win the votes of gun owners?

I Don’t Have To Obey The Law!

12 June 2013, 8:48 am. Comments Off. Filed under Congress, Crime, Male Bovine Excrement, Senate, U.S. Constitution.

Nope! There’s not one man made law I ever have to follow again.

I don’t have to obey the speed limit. I can cheat, lie and steal, if I want. I don’t even have to obey the rules set forth by our founders in the Constitution, although, I’m more inclined to follow those rules in the Bill of Rights, because, well, they ARE God given after all.

Why, you are asking, would I want to be a criminal? Well, why not? Evidently, I wouldn’t really be a criminal. Even criminals aren’t criminals. So, being a non-criminal criminal is the way to go these days. The Senate has said so! Since no one who has invaded our borders has to obey the law, why the hell should I? If I drank, I could drive drunk, kill people, and have no consequences. I could ‘smuggle’ in all sorts of drugs, shoot people in the streets, kidnap and murder, and it wouldn’t matter a bit. The Senate said so!!

I don’t have to respect the laws they’ve made up. Why should I? They don’t, and they are saying it’s ok for people from foreign countries to break any and all the laws, so why shouldn’t I! Criminals can vote, even if they aren’t supposed to. They can even vote 2, 3, or 10 times. Why shouldn’t I?? Why shouldn’t all of us vote multiple times for the candidates of our choice? It’s ok with the DoJ, so why not?

Nope! The Constitution doesn’t mean a damn thing to those we foolishly put into office to uphold it, and to keep our nation safe. Why the hell should we listen to a damn thing they say? Rules and regulations? Pfft! Don’t mean a thing!!

Nope!  I don’t have to follow their rules.  They took an oath.  They broke their word.  Their word means shit!  And I wouldn’t walk across the street to spit on a one of them if they were on fire!  Well, maybe Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, or a couple of others.  But the rest of ‘em?  In a pig’s eye!

Both Houses of Congress, and the administration have violated their oaths of office.  Through such violations, WE, The People have a right…no…we have a DUTY to remove them office!  To quote P/H:  “They are “ruling” without our consent, and hence the federal government is now illegitimate.”

I guess I’ve never kept it a secret how I feel about criminal invaders, aka illegal immigrants, aka undocumented immigrants.  I don’t know why they use the word ‘immigrant’, because when you immigrate somewhere, you go through the process of…well…immigrating.  What Congress is attempting to do is make us believe this bill is a good thing, and will bring people, who entered our country illegally, out from the shadows, to pay taxes, assimilate, and become productive members of society.  What they are REALLY trying to do is grab a huge voter bloc, assuming these criminals, as most criminals do, will vote Democrat. 

It’s quite depressing to know that there are a few Rs we had such high hopes for, that have allowed themselves to be led…by the nose…down that Primrose path by deceptive Ds.

So, since it’s already a well known fact I vehemently OPPOSE this sham, I won’t waste my time or energy this morning to reiterate.  :)

Four Words to Watch in the Immigration Debate
Amy Payne – The Foundry

The Senate will begin debate on the Gang of Eight’s immigration proposal next week. Here are four words to watch out for as the Senators make their case—and warnings about what they might mean.

1. COST

“Cost” is one word that should come up in the immigration debate, because the Gang of Eight’s amnesty proposal has a cost that is simply too high for Americans to bear. Heritage analysis found that amnesty would cost taxpayers trillions of dollars.

Amnesty means that illegal immigrants become legal—and become eligible for Obamacare benefits, Social Security, welfare, and Medicare. But they won’t pay enough into the system in taxes to cover the cost of all these benefits, meaning the rest of the taxpayers will have to bear the burden. This simply isn’t fair to hard-working Americans.

2. BORDER

Despite claims of security—and talk of amending the bill—the Gang of Eight immigration bill doesn’t secure the border. Instead, it “delivers nothing new—other than the promise of spending a lot more money and running up our debt.” As James Carafano, Heritage’s E. W. Richardson Fellow, explains: “Amnesty immediately creates an incentive for illegal border crossings and overstays. Thus, the bill’s strategy would drive up the cost of securing the border.”

3. AMNESTY

Heritage President Jim DeMint has said that it’s a false choice for people to say that amnesty is necessary to immigration reform. Amnesty encourages more illegal immigration, and that is not what immigration reform is supposed to do.

Former Attorney General Ed Meese, Heritage’s Ronald Reagan Distinguished Fellow Emeritus, reminds us that America has tried this before, and it didn’t work:

Today they call it a “roadmap to citizenship.” Ronald Reagan called it “amnesty.” And he was right. The 1986 reform did not solve our immigration problem—in fact, the population of illegal immigrants has nearly quadrupled since that “comprehensive” bill.

4. “COMPREHENSIVE”

Beware the word “comprehensive.” As Meese notes above, the amnesty of 1986 was also called a “comprehensive” approach to immigration reform. It doesn’t work, and it’s not what we need. We need a separate, step-by-step approach to immigration reform. An approach that works—that the American people can trust—would start with reforming the legal immigration system and enforcing the security measures that are supposed to be in place.

Not Distracted Enough!

22 May 2013, 8:14 pm. Comments Off. Filed under Opinion.

To the Democrats, these illegals aren’t people, sneaking in, “looking for a better life”.  Nope.  They’re votes, and votes means power.  Marco Rubio and Jeff Flake, both with R’s behind their names, have climbed on board the Dem vote train.  Oh yes, there’s McCain and Graham, but mostly we don’t count them as Republicans…they lost that right a long time ago.    

When did we vote to become Mexico?
by Ann Coulter

At first I thought the IRS scandal was leaked to distract from the Benghazi scandal. But that didn’t make sense because the IRS scandal is a more obvious abuse of power than the White House lying about the murder of four Americans in Libya.

Before I had resolved which scandal was distracting from which, we found out the Department of Justice was spying on The Associated Press — not to protect national security, but to prevent the AP from scooping the White House. Then, this week, it broke that the Department of Justice was also spying on Fox News for reasons that remain unexplained.

Meanwhile, Sens. Marco Rubio, Mitch McConnell, Lindsey Graham and John McCain are working feverishly to turn the country into Mexico.

So now I think all the scandals are intended to distract from Rubio’s amnesty bill.

For decades, Mexicans have been about 30 percent of all legal immigrants to the United States, while only a smidgen more than 1 percent come from Great Britain. Is that fair? Granted, their food is better, but why is it the norm is to have nearly 30 times as many Mexican as British immigrants?

Criminals Are More Important Than You

20 May 2013, 7:49 am. Comments Off. Filed under Opinion.

Why is it for the last several decades, that no one in D.C. has ever stopped to think of the ramifications of their actions? This administration, and let’s not forget Congress…starting in 2007, has, by far, been the worst in my lifetime. The United States of America is no longer the land of the free, although it certainly is the land of the brave! Those yahoos in D.C. might want to remember that little tidbit.

We are constantly hearing about being “fair” out of D.C.  Well, how about being FAIR to those who abide by the law, and follow the rules when immigrating to our country?  This is a slap in the face to every single one of them!

Immigration Reform Should Strengthen, Not Cost, America
Derrick Morgan – The Foundry

Lawful immigration can bring important economic and cultural benefits both to the United States and to the immigrants. Americans rightly live and celebrate the values of America, including limited government, personal liberty, and free enterprise, and beckon others to join us. We are united by belief in our founding documents and our creed that all men are created equal. As Ronald Reagan said, “The immigrants who have so enriched America include people from every race, creed, and ethnic background.”

While we welcome those who want to come here, we are a nation of laws and the rule of law requires fair, firm, and consistent enforcement. Immigration is no exception and in fact is critically important, because newcomers need to see the principle in action from their first day in America. Those who enter legally by our slow and bureaucratic system need to be rewarded, not left wondering whether they should have entered or stayed illegally and waited for amnesty.

In addressing immigration, our government should start with keeping the promises they made when they granted amnesty “for only this one time” in 1986. First, they must secure the border. Then they should enforce our laws by imposing stiff fines on those who hire illegal immigrants. These steps are supported by supermajorities of the American people.

After that, Congress should move to fix our slow, broken lawful immigration system. Individual bills addressing these specific problems step-by-step are good for the country because they are simple, clear, and transparent. They make it possible to get legislative victories where we can agree and make it hard to hide loopholes or sweetheart deals for special interests. They can build trust that government is working for the people.

Unfortunately, Congress is moving ahead with a huge, complex, and comprehensive bill that will include amnesty for those who have broken our immigration laws. And in a time of massive and increasing debt, we know that the bill will end up costing taxpayers trillions of dollars. After a short time, millions of illegal immigrants will have access to the full panoply of bloated means-tested welfare programs and qualify for overburdened entitlement programs like Social Security and Medicare.

Instead, Congress should proceed step-by-step: border security, then workplace enforcement, and then fixing our broken legal immigration system. These steps will fulfill past promises and benefit America economically while not adding the unnecessary fiscal costs of amnesty.

Repeating Reagan’s HUGE Mistake

We’ve Seen the Effect of “Amnesty” Before
Ed Meese – The Foundry

Experts can’t always predict exactly how public policy will affect the nation, despite our best efforts. But when it comes to immigration policy, we have tried many of the types of reforms advocated by today’s Gang of Eight—so we should consider the effects these reforms had in the past.

In the mid-’80s, many Members of Congress advocated amnesty for long-settled illegal immigrants. President Reagan considered it reasonable to adjust the status of what was then a relatively small population, and as his attorney general, I supported his decision.

The path to citizenship was not automatic. Immigrants had to pay application fees, learn to speak English, understand American civics, pass a medical exam, and register for military selective service. Those with convictions for a felony or three misdemeanors were ineligible.

This should sound familiar, as it’s quite close to the path and provisions set forth by the Gang of Eight.

Today they call it a “roadmap to citizenship.” Ronald Reagan called it “amnesty.” And he was right.

The 1986 reform did not solve our immigration problem—in fact, the population of illegal immigrants has nearly quadrupled since that “comprehensive” bill.

Why didn’t it work? Well, one reason is that everything else the 1986 bill promised—from border security to law enforcement—was to come later. It never did. Only amnesty prevailed, and that encouraged more illegal immigration.

Today, we have many of the same needs we did then. We need to work on better securing our border. We need to modernize our legal immigration system, including effective temporary worker programs. And we need strong enforcement of the laws we already have, including those that enforce immigration policies in the workplace.

The Gang of Eight is making promises now. “Border security” is a big promise. But their proposal spends money and grants amnesty without the guarantee that this promise will be kept.

We are having much the same debate and being offered much the same deal in exchange for promises largely dependent on the will of future Congresses and Presidents.

Instead, we should learn from our mistakes.

America welcomes more immigrants than any other country. As Ronald Reagan said:

In this free land a person can realize his dreams—going as far as talent and drive can carry him. In return America asks each of us to do our best, to work hard, to respect the law, to cherish human rights, and to strive for the common good. The immigrants who have so enriched America include people from every race, creed, and ethnic background. Yet all have been drawn here by shared values and a deep love of freedom. Most brought with them few material goods. But with their hearts and minds and toil they have contributed mightily to the building of this great Nation and endowed us with the riches of their achievements. Their spirit continues to nourish our own love of freedom and opportunity.

But in keeping open that door of opportunity, we also must uphold the rule of law and enhance a fair immigration process, as Reagan said, to “humanely regain control of our borders and thereby preserve the value of one of the most sacred possessions of our people: American citizenship.”

The Gang of Eight Immigration Bill, Explained in One Infographic
Kelsey Harris & Rob Bluey – The Foundry

Senators return to Washington next week to debate the Gang of Eight’s comprehensive immigration bill. Heritage President Jim DeMint has said the bill is “unfair, it costs too much, and it’s going to make the problem worse.” We’ve put together an infographic that explains some of the major problems with a “comprehensive” approach to immigration reform. Forward this to a friend to share these concerns.

“….fear the people….”

I’ve highlighted the names of the “gang of eight” so you won’t forget them. If you want to read this bill, also known as JOLT ACT of 2013, you can read the whole text of gobbledy gook here.  While there are a few issues that MUST be addressed, and should have been a LONG time ago, the is a lot in this bill that shouldn’t even be considered!  At some point, I just might go through the whole 844 pages, and address those, but for now, do your own homework!  :D

IMHO, they should have made issues addressed in the Congressional Findings (Section 2) THE bill, and left the rest for another time, when we are back on our feet, so to speak.

(1) The passage of this Act recognizes that the primary tenets of its success depend on securing the sovereignty of the United States of America and establishing a coherent and just system for integrating those who seek to join American society.

Our ‘sovereignty’ has become a really bad joke.  And as for ‘integrating’?  Waving the Mexican, or other foreign flags, DEMANDING ‘rights’, is not integrating.  Refusing to learn the language of the land is not integrating.  Bringing ‘third world’ habits and policies and insisting WE adapt to YOUR way, is not integrating. 

(2) We have a right, and duty, to maintain and secure our borders, and to keep our country safe and prosperous. As a nation founded, built and sustained by immigrants we also have a responsibility to harness the power of that tradition in a balanced way that secures a more prosperous future for America.

Well, our borders are NOT secure, and we are NOT safe.  The drug cartels have made themselves quite at home in cities like Chicago, a place where murder is so common place, with some of the strictest ‘gun control’ laws…in the world…it has become a poster child for how NOT to run a city, county….country! 

These are the two major issues that should have been addressed, and the rest left to other bills, broken down individually, instead of lumping the whole chit works into one bill.  Congress has a real bad habit of throwing in crap, and this bill is no different.  Address these issues FIRST.  Get the border secured, which will take YEARS, and remove the criminal element from out streets.  Shoot the sons of beeches if necessary, but get them away from our children.  Does it make sense for a legal citizen, or resident, to fear for their lives every time they walk out their front doors?  HELL NO!  So, why aren’t those in Washington concerned about US?  Because it’s all politics!

No self respecting member of the U.S. Senate would EVER introduce such garbage.  Then again, we have no self respecting representatives in the government anymore, and they SURE don’t respect us!  WE want our borders secured, immediately, but this is not a priority.  WE want our streets safe from criminals, and criminals removed, but this also, is not a priority.

What is the priority?  Votes.  11 MILLION new voters, the majority of whom will make sure we continue to lose our God given, Constitutionally guaranteed, liberties by assuring that the Democrats>liberals>progressives>socialists>commies will have a strangle hold on power.

This bill, as is, is something this country can’t afford, financially, or morally.  I’ve heard so many spewing on the idjit box how “no one is an illegal person’.  Well, they are wrong.  Being a person isn’t illegal.  Breaking into someone else’s home, expecting them to feed, clothe, take you to the doctor, and pay for all your wants and whims IS illegal, is IS a crime.  Handing over the keys to the house is just plain ignorant!

“Former House Majority Leader Dick Armey (R-TX) once noted that three groups spend other people’s money: thieves, children, and politicians—and all three need supervision.”  Politicians have shown themselves to be both childish, and thieves.  It’s way past time for WE, The People to regain control of our country, and OUR money!  Any politician that fails to uphold his/her oath of office should be run out on a rail!  WE need to put the fear of God back into them, and the fear of us!

“When governments fear the people, there is liberty. When the people fear the government, there is tyranny.”  Thomas Jefferson

American Families Cannot Afford the Cost of Amnesty
Derrick Morgan – The Foundry

Our nation is going broke, and now is not the time to increase burdens on American families.

The Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act (S. 744)—commonly called the “Gang of Eight bill” after the eight Senators who came up with it, Charles Schumer (D-NY), Dick Durbin (D-IL), Robert Menendez (D-NJ), Michael Bennet (D-CO), John McCain (R-AZ), Jeff Flake (R-AZ), Marco Rubio (R-FL), and Lindsey Graham (R-SC)—includes amnesty for some 11 million unlawful immigrants. That amnesty would further burden taxpayers and weaken our fiscal situation. Congress should not rush to pass the bill without understanding the cost to the American taxpayer, especially when key research identifying and calculating those costs is nearly complete.

We have more than $12 trillion in public debt and tens of trillions of dollars more in unfunded obligations that we have no way to afford, thanks to promises made by past and present politicians. With this in mind, today’s political leaders must consider the fiscal impact of amnesty and a path to citizenship that would enable millions of unlawful immigrants to qualify for costly welfare and entitlement programs.

The Ivory Tower Gang

I expect this kind of nonsense from John McCain, Lindsay Graham, Chuckie Schumer, and the typical roll call of Dems. To say I am more than disappointed in Marco Rubio and Jeff Flake, ESPECIALLY Rubio, would be like me saying “I don’t like fish.” I really DON’T like fish, and anyone who knows me, knows I definitely do not like fish! (no, one has nothing to do with the other…just a statement of fact)

We, the Constitution supporters, put a lot of faith in Rubio. Many worked long hard hours to get him into the Senate. People around the country sent money they could ill afford to help in the effort. This is how the people are repaid? With more garbage? More taxes? Amnesty???? To reward criminals? How is this a positive move for ANYONE other than the criminals themselves, and the politicians?

We have laws on the books. You commit a crime, you pay the penalty. It’s not that complicated. Yet, these 8 weasels are throwing out those laws, putting more of a burden on the people who came to the country legally, in whichever century, and giving a free pass to those who believe themselves above the law. We have a border. There’s a reason why man created fences. Good fences make good neighbors. Our fences are broken, and our neighbors aren’t ‘good’. They’ve trashed our yards, killed our ‘family members’, and cost billions in tax dollars.

We were promised a fence. Then, we were promised a ‘virtual fence’. We spent an extremely large amount of money. They tell us “It didn’t work”. The solution is simple. Build a physical fence, a very tall, sturdy fence, with razor wire, electrify the fence, and if necessary, put gun turrets every 20 yards along that fence. If that doesn’t work, there are always land mines, moats filled with alligators, piranhas, or some similar nasty creatures. If the tribes along the border have a problem, two words….imminent domain. After all, Congress has used that for reasons OTHER than what it was created, why not use it for the purpose it was intended? And if the EPA has a problem, you tell ‘em to live down there, and deal with the criminals hauling drugs across our borders to poison our children. I can guaran-damn-tee, they’ll change their tune quicker than you can say jackalope!!

It’s a well know fact that government doesn’t “fix” anything. They create more problems with their “fixes”. They are worse than a child with a screw driver in a room full of expensive electronics!

Do they truly want to solve a very serious problem? If so, they can scrap that 844 page piece of crap, bring out one very clean sheet of paper, and start writing:

1. Build big fence.
2. Hire more border guards (uniforms Made in U.S.A., not Mexico).
3. Arm said guards to the teeth, with live ammo, not rubber bullets, or freakin’ bean bags.
4. “Shoot to kill” orders, if said criminals don’t turn their sorry asses around and go home.
5. All student and non immigrant visa recipients will wear tracking devices. If such person, or persons, overstay their visa, said device will emit an ear piercing screech, notifying all those around them, they are now illegal. If device is not removed within a certain period of time, while wearer is boarding a plane, etc., device will then explode, leaving the wearer quite maimed. Very few muslims will be allowed to enter the country, and those who get the privilege, will wear two.
6. No immigrant will receive any compensation from the American people. They will work, or go home.
7. No muslim, from ANY country, will be given ‘preferred status’. Saudis status to be revoked. Israelis will now be given such status.
8. Profiling will now be implemented. Grandmothers and small children will no longer be groped and humiliated.
9. All mosques and muslim schools will be closed, plowed under, and the earth salted.
10. The official language of the United States of America is English. No signs, ballots, official documents, etc., will be printed in any language but English. Learn the language, or go home.

There! I’ve gotten them started. See how easy that was? No pork projects added!

Top 5 Problems with the “Comprehensive” Immigration Bill
James Carafano – The Foundry

The good news is Congress cares about trying to fix our flawed immigration system and broken borders.

The bad news is they want to do it with a solution that looks a lot like Obamacare—the “Gang of Eight” 844-page-plus “comprehensive” bill.

The sad news is that such an “easy button” solution will not improve our immigration system.

History shows that big bills designed to solve everything wind up creating as many problems as they address. They become loaded with payoffs for special interests and often introduce measures that work at cross purposes.

The “comprehensive” bill fails at the start. Here are the top five reasons it cannot be fixed.
