Obama: Kneel Before Zod – Obama’s Amnesty Speech

General Zod

General Zod

The following article by Ben Shapiro was posted on Breitbart.com last night shortly after president Obama’s official announcement of his constitutional power grab (executive amnesty speech).  I read it with my jaw wide open most of the time as I realized that I had some of the same thoughts that Mr. Shapiro expressed while I was watching the speech.  I said some of the same thoughts, not all; this young man Shapiro is literally brilliant, and he definitely knows how to say what’s on his mind.

This article is not the shortest chapter in the book, but you’ve got to read it.  And let me know what you think (comment) if you’re so inclined. Thanks.

Obama Flag 20 Nov 2014, 6:55 PM PDT

On Thursday night, President Obama delivered his address to the nation on his executive amnesty. It was historic, both in its scope and in its dishonesty: the speech represented a closely-woven and incredible tapestry of falsehood, exposited with a straight face by the greatest liar in modern American history. To those versed in immigration and constitutional law, watching Obama lay out his program felt like watching a madman describe, with preternaturally perfect sincerity, how the moon was constructed of cheese: you know the argument is untrue, but it’s incredible to watch its dogged exposition.

Obama opened with a glowing talk about the wonders of immigration – generalizations with which virtually [all] Americans agree, as is his wont.

Then the lies began. Posing as an immigration hardliner, Obama stated that he felt for “families who enter our country the right way and play by the rules,” and who “watch others flout the rules” (of course, Obama was mere moments away from rewarding those who flout the rules and punishing those who play by them). He then explained that businesses exploited cheap immigrant labor (of course, Obama was about to announce wage pressure downward in the form of amnesty). He summed up with this incredible sentence:

All of us take offense to anyone who reaps the rewards of living in America without taking on the responsibilities of living in America.

Well, no. Not all of us, given that the Democratic Party draws its voting base from those who wish to reap the rewards of living in America’s generous welfare state without taking on the responsibilities of doing so.

Obama continued with his fibs about how he had secured the southern border, citing a drop in illegal border crossings – a drop caused almost entirely by Obama’s weak economy (Obama himself dated the immigration drop to 2007, when President Bush was in office). He pooh-poohed the “brief spike in unaccompanied children being apprehended at our border,” and said that “the number of such children is now actually lower than it’s been in nearly two years.” The notion that there has been a decrease in unaccompanied children crossing our border, according to FactCheck.org, is false.

This all prefaced Obama’s big power grab. In true dictatorial fashion, Obama laid out how the legislative process had failed – and then noted that he had to do what he had to do.

Now, I continue to believe that the best way to solve this problem is by working together to pass that kind of common sense law. But until that happens, there are actions I have the legal authority to take as President – the same kinds of actions taken by Democratic and Republican Presidents before me – that will help make our immigration system more fair and more just.

Obama has no such legal authority. He knows it. Obama’s executive amnesty is different in scope and kind from anything before it. Neither Ronald Reagan nor George H.W. Bush pursued their amnesty programs in the complete absence of Congressional legislation. No president has ever legalized some 7 million illegal immigrants, as Obama has done over the past three years. This is unprecedented. Read more at breitbart.com.

Berkeley City Council Approves Warning Labels for Gas Pumps

With the news cycle dominated by many hot button issues and events – amnesty, terrorism, GruberGate, Fergusen and more, I thought it fitting to take a step away and report on this.  One can never underestimate the ingenuity of the folks out there on the left coast – ADB:

“May Cause Global Warming”

Hippies

Berkeley, Calif., could become the first city in the country install warning labels on gas pumps. The city council voted late Tuesday to move forward on a plan to festoon the city’s fueling stations with stickers warnings that “burning fuel contributes to global warming,” the Associate Press reports.

San Francisco (obviously) is also considering a proposal to install the warning labels on gas pumps, which supporters have compared to the health warnings on cigarette packages. The program is estimated to cost up to $20,000.

Berkeley has a long history of doing things to appease its population of militant hippies. For example, police have been riding bicycles there since 1910. Officials have also banned Styrofoam and raised taxes on sugary drinks.  Read more at freebeacon.com.

The Straw Man Interview

Straw Man

theconversation.com

 

Tonight, I had the pleasure of interviewing Straw Man. Mr. Man has been the object of much criticism from President Obama and the Democratic Party. He’s been in hiding until recently, for his own safety. Now, vindicated by this latest election, he’s agreed to speak with me tonight.

ME: Good evening, Straw Man, and welcome.

You’ve endured numerous vitriolic assaults, over the years. From the classic “You want to throw granny over the cliff,” to “You want old people on social security to choose between heating and eating dog food.”

They say you don’t care about the environment; that you’re for “dirty air and dirty water.” And, of course, that you’re a “climate-change denier.”

Many say you want little children on welfare to starve. Then there’s your supposed “war on women,” your hatred for gays and minorities. And, of course, you hate puppies … the list goes on.

My question to you, sir, is how you do it? – How have you weathered these withering politics of personal destruction?

STRAW: Well, thank you, Serv. At first, I really let this stuff get to me. I got defensive – quiet and introverted. I went around mumbling to myself, asking myself, “How did it come to this?” How did someone like me – who wants everyone to live a good, productive life, to be a good citizen, to experience the blessings of liberty – come to be so misunderstood, even despised?

Nothing in my life prepared me for that. Finally, I started to realize – it’s not me, it’s THEM! THEY hate me for the very things I stand for. It’s their job to deconstruct my life. They were trying to make me feel bad. They wanted to get people to hate me. It’s a power grab. I learned not to take it personally.

Now, finally, other people are starting to see that too – my critics were SO over-the-top that people began to sympathize with me. They look in the mirror, and see me. My critics SO over-reached, and SO exposed themselves, that now I’m starting to feel safe to be seen again in public, even to speak out.

ME: You’ve been disavowed even by your supposed friends, the Republicans. Aren’t you afraid of being back-stabbed?

STRAW: I know, I know – the Republicans wouldn’t come out and defend me. Some did, here and there, but they certainly didn’t make a concerted effort. It’s not that they hate me; I think they were just afraid to say anything, for fear of being laughed at or criticized.

Some people tried to protect me – the Tea Party and such; conservatives, and some corporations. I appreciate that. But they were silenced, as much as possible, by the Obama Democrats. For some reason, his corporations were considered okay, but my corporations are “dark,” – not to be trusted.

Thing is, the Obama Democrats, they NEVER talk to me. They never even consider my real point of view! They couldn’t tell you what my real point of view is! They exaggerate and stereotype all my positions!

It’s what they have to do to make themselves feel special.  Read more at the405media.com.

School Handout: ‘The Government Gives Us Rights’

The last time I checked the second paragraph of the Declaration of Independence began as follows:

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed…

It appears that these days this doesn’t matter to some charged with educating our children as explained in the following article by Tony Sanchez:

Black Eyed Children

A well-circulated school handout is teaching children that rights are given to citizens not by their Creator, but by their government.

The author of the handout, Phyllis Naegeli, writes educational (used loosely) materials for elementary school-aged children.  Continue reading at truthrevolt.org.

Terror Attack in Jerusalem • Israeli Ambassador Ron Dermer

Again from The Kelly File on Fox News:  Megyn and Israeli ambassador to the United States, Ron Dermer discuss the heinous slaughter of five Jews at a Jerusalem Synagogue the took place the morning of November 18th during morning prayers.  Watch for president Obama’s tepid response beginning at 2:44 into the clip.  Remember, three of the five people slaughtered were American citizens.  Try to find his anger.  Try to find the outrage in his voice, and if you do, please let me know.  Continue watching and you’ll see the “peace loving” Palestinians celebrating the slaughter.  They even handed out candy and cakes.  After all, the hacking to death of Jews in a synagogue is a festive event.

Hamas Slaughter

Be sure you see the reactions expressed on twitchy.com where the headline was: ‘Mr. President, shut up’: Obama calls on Israel to help ‘lower tensions’ following terrorist attack in JerusalemRead the tweets and please scroll down to Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas’ supposed condemnation of the atrocities.

God help us all!

FBN’s Melissa Francis: I Was ‘Silenced’ at CNBC for Questioning Obamacare

Opinion:  The person who most disrespects the office of the president is the one who occupies that office.

As quoted in the NY Post, a CNBC rep said, “That’s laughable, but we take notice, because as the fastest-growing network in prime time, we’re always on the lookout for high quality comedy writers and actresses.” (Hat tip: bizpacreview.com)

Francis appeared on The Kelly File on Fox News on Monday night and discussed this debacle further:

Pelosoi Never Read It

Watch the video of our dear House Minority Leader (below the graphic)

Pelosi Never Read It
Democrats were fond of Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber. Then he became political poison and now amnesia seems to be settling in about his role in the ACA.

Organizers Train Newly Minted Protesters in St. Louis

Ferguson Protest Planning

Protesters anxiously awaiting the St. Louis grand jury decision relating to the shooting death of 18-year-old Mike Brown have been training activists all weekend in preparation for the day the grand jury makes an announcement about whether to indict Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson for Brown’s death.

In a small room located on South Jefferson Avenue in a building used by IUOE Local 148, organizers like Rev. Osagyefo Sekou are instructing groups of individuals about tactics relating to resisting police commands during demonstrations.  Sekou is a St. Louis native who grew up in the area but now lives in Massachusetts.

Topics covered by organizers like Sekou as well as Deray McKesson and others included decentralized protest actions, jail support, first aid, legal issues, as well as staying safe on the streets during demonstrations. Read more at breitbart.com.

By the way, if you really think this is going to be non-violent, the line to buy the bridges is over there on the left.
