Here We Go Again!

As I return to publishing observations here, the nation sees itself on the brink of yet another presidential campaign. November 2016 will be here before you know it!…

We have 3 Republicans, Sen. Rand Paul (KY), Sen. Marco Rubio (FL), and Sen. Ted Cruz (TX) up against former Secretary of State and Democrat New York senator, Hillary Clinton.

The themes and memes are already underway in attempts to set the narrative. True to form, the Democrats have trotted out some of their worthless, tasteless voices to express insipid opinions on the Republican field. These quotes are definitely worth retaining as the campaigns move forward…

“Like most other major Republicans his (Rand Paul) views are outdated and way outside the mainstream.."

To this day, she retains the crown as the most lame brain woman in Congress!

Things are just getting underway. That being said, I detect a hint of concern on the part of the Democrats. They’re realizing the lies they’ve told for decades are losing their political value..fast!

DESPERATE DEMOCRATS

It shouldn’t be surprising the lengths the Democrats will go to in order to instill fear in the voting electorate. However, this year’s mid term elections seem to have brought some humdingers!

A few for you..

In North Carolina, a group supportive of incumbent Senator Kay Hagan (D) warns of lynchings and the like, should the GOP win the Senate…

In Texas, loopy Wendy Davis, the Democrat candidate for governor, questions whether her Republican opponent, Greg Abbott, would defend an interracial marriage ban. A rather odd scenario in itself, made even more odd by the fact that Abbott himself is in an interracial marriage…

The lunatic, Davis, is about as whack as they come in politics….

And speaking of lunatics…. Massachusetts senator, Elizabeth Warren (D), stumping for fellow idiot, Al Franken (D-MN), is on the rampage again with some garbage about the system being rigged by the Republicans…Yeah…they rigged it so they would lose…

When it comes to complete and utter nonsense, nonstop bullshit, and a complete lack of common sense, the Democrats have DEFINITELY got that cornered!

Why Is Obama Encouraging Illegal Immigration When We Can’t Take Care Of Millions Of Our Own Citizens?

As with most EVERYTHING in the Obama administration, the unfolding immigration and border crisis is escalating into a catastrophe…Not necessarily for him, but for the nation.

The Economic Collapse blog, as they usually do, has the perfect analysis of the most damaging, disastrous president this nation has seen….

obama-and-illegal-aliens

 

“For years, the Obama administration has been making it abundantly clear that it is a friend of illegal immigrants. Border security is a joke, the federal government refuses to go after “sanctuary cities” even though they are breaking federal law, there is a website that instructs immigrants how to sign up for welfare programs once they arrive in the United States, and the Obama administration has distributed flyers that tell illegal immigrants that their immigration status will not be checked when they apply for food stamps. And Obama has even instructed officials to use “prosecutorial discretion” in deportation cases involving non-criminals. In other words, Obama has been flashing a huge green light to illegal immigrants, and so of course our borders were going to be inundated with them.

Apologists for the Obama administration will debate you all day about what Obama “intended” and what he didn’t “intend”, but there is no doubt about what message immigrants from Central America have been receiving.

For example, one young mother recently told the press that she heard that if you “go to America with your child, you won’t be turned away”.

And you can view video of a little boy from Central America telling an investigate reporter that he believes that Barack Obama has “given permission” for him to live in the United States right here.

It isn’t an accident that our southern border is literally being flooded with illegal immigrants right now. Newspapers in El Salvador and Honduras have been publicizing how easy illegal immigration has become, and even the President of Honduras has said that people are coming to the United States for “Obama’s amnesty”.

When they arrive, thousands upon thousands of these illegal immigrants are using rehearsed answers that border patrol agents are hearing over and over again. Word has spread that if illegal immigrants claim that they are “fleeing gang violence” that it is more likely that they will be allowed to stay.

What we are witnessing down on the southern border is really unprecedented. It has been estimated that twelve times as many kids are crossing our borders illegally now compared to just a few years ago.

And they just keep on coming.

This is utter madness.

Now, please don’t think that I am anti-immigrant. I am all for legal immigration. This is a nation of immigrants and we will always need immigration. But everyone should be required to come in through the front door. Encouraging illegal immigration is simply a recipe for disaster.

If we keep the back door wide open, the truth is that we have absolutely no idea who is coming into our country. Do we really want countless numbers of criminals, welfare parasites, drug dealers and gang members pouring into our cities? According to the FBI, there are now approximately 1.4 million gang members living in the United States, and it has been estimated that illegal immigrants make up approximately 30 percent of the total population in federal, state and local prisons.

And why in the world would we not want to control the diseases coming into this country? Over the past several weeks, it has been documented that some of the illegal immigrants that have been apprehended have scabies and tuberculosis.

But instead of sending them right back out of the country, U.S. officials are setting up camps for this tsunami of illegal immigrants. In other cases, the federal government is simply putting them on buses and planes and shipping them all over the country. The illegal immigrants are released into their new communities and are given papers which order them to eventually appear in court, but of course the vast majority of them never show up. You can see a map that documents areas where the federal government has been shipping illegal immigrants right here.

The rational thing to do would be to secure our borders and to send a very clear message that illegal immigration is not welcome in the United States.

But instead of doing that, the Obama administration is actually bringing in a riot squad to deal with anti-immigration protesters.

During normal times all of this would be crazy enough, but right now we are at a point where we cannot even take care of millions upon millions of our own citizens.

We are told that illegal immigrants do the jobs “that Americans don’t want to do”, but is that really accurate?

In this day and age, there is intense competition for just about any kind of a job. Despite what the mainstream media says, the truth is that there hasn’t been a significant employment recovery in the United States. As you can see from the chart posted below, the percentage of the working age population that is actually working is still far, far below where it was just prior to the last recession…

 

Employment-Population-Ratio-2014

 

Yes, there has been a very slight bump in the numbers in recent months, but it is certainly no reason for celebration. When the mainstream media declares that unemployment in America has been steadily going down, they are simply being disingenuous. Right now things are only slightly better than they were during the worst times of the past several years.

And according to shadowstats.com, the broadest measure of unemployment is still well over 20 percent and has been steadily rising since the end of the last recession.

So no, there aren’t nearly enough jobs in the United States.

And thanks to competition from immigrant labor and thanks to the fact that millions of good jobs have been shipped overseas, the quality of our jobs continues to decline as well. For much more on that trend, please see this article.

Needless to say, now is not the time to open up the floodgates to millions of immigrants that will need jobs to support themselves. Many of our major cities are already so economically depressed that they look like war zones. In fact, things have gotten so bad in Detroit that a plan is being considered to bulldoze a fifth of the entire city…

In May, a group ominously titled the “Detroit Blight Removal Task Force” released a report claiming that around 22 percent of the city’s properties were “blighted” – vacant, damaged or considered dangerous. They also found that, of the 84,000 properties owned by public entities, just over 5,000 were occupied by squatters, making the city of Detroit, the report’s authors noted, “a very large and inadvertent landlord”.

The task force’s proposed solution is to demolish it all over the next five years and start again. Unfortunately, the plan doesn’t extend to rebuilding the properties – it’ll be down to private companies and developers to buy up the land and rebuild.

For much more on the decay of our major cities, please see my previous article entitled “The Death Of The Rust Belt”.

Considering the fact that we are already having such a severe problem taking care of our current population, what do you think is going to happen to these waves of illegal immigrants as they attempt to settle in to communities all around the nation?

Ultimately, we are going to have to end up financially supporting a very large percentage of them too.

Right now, more than 20 percent of children in this country are already living in poverty, and 49 million Americans are dealing with food insecurity.

If Obama continues to encourage mass illegal immigration, those numbers are going to get much worse.

Government dependence is already at an all-time record high, and about half the country currently receives benefits of some sort from the federal government every month.

How much more weight can we put on the “safety net” before it breaks? Just check out some more numbers about this crisis from one of my previous articles…

-Ten years ago, the number of women in the U.S. that had jobs outnumbered the number of women in the U.S. on food stamps by more than a 2 to 1 margin. But now the number of women in the U.S. on food stamps actually exceeds the number of women that have jobs.

-The U.S. government has spent an astounding 3.7 trillion dollars on welfare programs over the past five years.

-Today, the federal government runs about 80 different “means-tested welfare programs”, and almost all of those programs have experienced substantial growth in recent years.

-Back in 1960, the ratio of social welfare benefits to salaries and wages was approximately 10 percent. In the year 2000, the ratio of social welfare benefits to salaries and wages was approximately 21 percent. Today, the ratio of social welfare benefits to salaries and wages is approximately 35 percent.

-While Barack Obama has been in the White House, the total number of Americans on food stamps has gone from 32 million to nearly 47 million.

-Back in the 1970s, about one out of every 50 Americans was on food stamps. Today, about one out of every 6.5 Americans is on food stamps.

-It sounds crazy, but the number of Americans on food stamps now exceeds the entire population of the nation of Spain.

-According to one calculation, the number of Americans on food stamps is now greater than the combined populations of “Alaska, Arkansas, Connecticut, Delaware, District of Columbia, Hawaii, Idaho, Iowa, Kansas, Maine, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Oregon, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Utah, Vermont, West Virginia, and Wyoming.”

-According to a report from the Center for Immigration Studies, 43 percent of all immigrants that have been in the United States for at least 20 years are still on welfare.

A lot of people that are trying to immigrate here illegally just want to make a better life for themselves, and I can appreciate that.

But a policy of making it incredibly difficult for honest people to come in through the front door while keeping the back door completely wide open for lawbreakers is a recipe for national suicide.

And right now we don’t have jobs for these immigrants.

We can’t even take care of the people that are already living here.

Something desperately needs to be done about this, but I wouldn’t hold your breath waiting for Obama to make a bold move to stop illegal immigrants from pouring over the border.”

The Latest in DUMBassery….

Now we all know there’s no shortage of idiocy in government, especially Washington. That being said, I thought I’d get us up to speed on some of the moronic comments espoused by those supposedly in the know…..

 

“What CBO said is many American workers would have freedom. Now that’s a good word. Freedom to do things that they couldn’t do. The single mom who’s raising three kids has to keep the job because of healthcare, can now spend some time raising those kids. That’s a family value.” - Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY)

Sen. Schumer, a Congressional blow hard, par excellence, made is point on NBC’s “Meet the Press”, in response to the Congressional Budget Office’s assessment on the effects of Obamacare…

 

"We are going to have parents being able to come home, working reasonable hours. People are going to be able to retire. People might actually be able to cook dinner rather than have to order out and get some takeout." He added: "If you look at international comparisons country by country, Americans work way more that the average of industrialized countries around the world." He said the report showing fewer work hours gives us the chance "to look at our work/life balance," which he described as "a great opportunity."

“We are going to have parents being able to come home, working reasonable hours. People are going to be able to retire. People might actually be able to cook dinner rather than have to order out and get some takeout.”… “If you look at international comparisons country by country, Americans work way more that the average of industrialized countries around the world.”

Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) in response to the same CBO report…Yet another example of the Democrats trying DESPERATELY to rationalize in light of a bad situation. Who needs to work, anyway?…..

 

"What we are seeing is that people are leaving their jobs because they are no longer job locked...They are following their aspirations to be a writer; to be self-employed; to start business.  This is the entrepreneurial piece.  So it's not going to cost jobs.  Its going to shift how people make a living and reach their aspirations."

Here we go again…”queen of lunacy”, Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) offers her two cents worth….

 

“We will be answering the call of all of America because people need work and we’re not doing right by them by creating work,” the Texas congresswoman said. “I believe this caucus will put us on the right path and we’ll give President Obama a number of executive orders that he can sign with pride and strength,” Jackson said Jan. 29 at a press conference where she and fellow Democrats launched the Full Employment Caucus. “In fact, I think that should be our number one agenda. Let’s write up these executive orders — draft them, of course — and ask the president to stand with us on full employment,”

“We will be answering the call of all of America because people need work and we’re not doing right by them by creating work..”… “I believe this caucus will put us on the right path and we’ll give President Obama a number of executive orders that he can sign with pride and strength…”
“In fact, I think that should be our number one agenda. Let’s write up these executive orders — draft them, of course — and ask the president to stand with us on full employment..”

 

The FRIGHTFULLY MORONIC Rep. Sheila Jackson-Lee (D-TX), on her solution to the legislative agenda..just write executive orders for Barack Obama…A scary thought, if there ever was one!….

 

“We have the CBO report, which rightfully says, that people shouldn’t have job lock. If they — we live in a country where there should be free agency. People can do what they want,” Reid told reporters outside of a close policy luncheon. “And what they’re saying here is — and the fact checkers have already done this — the Republicans talk about losing millions of jobs simply isn’t true. It allows people to get out of a job they’re locked into, because of — they have healthcare in their job.”

“We have the CBO report, which rightfully says, that people shouldn’t have job lock. If they — we live in a country where there should be free agency.

It allows people to get out of a job they’re locked into, because of — they have healthcare in their job.”

This from the infirm mind of Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV), the majority leader in the Senate. It’s just the latest example of what a DISASTER and how lacking in leadership this shameless, worthless man has been…

 

These are but a few examples of the moronic thought by individuals that shape policy in Washington. These idiots, and others like them, are in CHARGE! That fact alone should be more than enough to shake millions of American voters to their collective senses!

This can’t continue. It has to come to a head. Barack Obama has been a utter and shameless DISASTER since day one as president. Week after week, we see example after example. From domestic policy to international relations, the man lacks any coherent approach to problem solving. His practice of reactionary programs, worthless proposals, and reckless spending has left this nation frustrated and divided. The question remains, do we have the courage to actually DO SOMETHING about it in the 2014 mid-terms and the presidential election of 2016?…

 

PERFECTLY Stated!

Biden_brain

Absolutely LOVED this reader’s response to a WSJ piece about our IDIOTIC vice president and his recent trip to Iowa! She sums up the frustrations of millions of Americans in a few sentences…

“Vice President Joe Biden visited Iowa with a message about the administration’s “laser focus” on the middle class (“Biden Draws the Spotlight in Iowa,” U.S. News, Sept. 16). That explains a lot.

The job market is dismal in historic terms. ObamaCare is restricting employee hours and the wages that go with them. The administration’s regulatory environment can be described as seek and destroy, so start a business at your own risk.

We in the middle class are pretty well toasted, Mr. Biden. Perhaps you could “laser focus” on someone else for a while.

THANK YOU, MS BLACKWELL!

Send them packin’!!

You need look no further than the White House and select members of Congress….These morons are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to taking a career in politics and betraying the trust of the citizens of these United States! Every single one of them should be ashamed of their contribution to the economic destruction of this nation! They have made a career in Washington…dispensing YOUR tax dollars as THEY see fit, while expecting MORE from you…parading before the cameras and microphones of the eagerly complicit media, to damn the opposition if there’s even a HINT of fiscal responsibility….lying to their constituents at every turn, claiming the “other guys” want you to DIE or KILL you!….

It goes on and on and on….the sooner we rid Washington of the kind of absurdity these morons espouse, the sooner we can turn this country around!…THINK ABOUT IT!!!!

We are far beyond the time to send these senseless, dangerous individuals back to private life and limit their ability to inflict further damage on this nation! PERIOD!
