Obama Wrong on Immigration

The "Obama" said everything but deport the illegal immigrants. He said you make them pay a fine, learn to speak english, and get to the back of the line. Yet, he doesn't mention deportation, so they are still at the front of the line. It's the Federal Governments responsibility to secure the borders and Obama refuses to do it. AP wrote an article stating that Homeland Security estimates Arizona's illegal Immigrants to be about 460000. So they have to know where some of them are. Why are they not enforcing the law? The "Obama" is fanning the flames, he is a polarizing, divisive figure and makes no mention of the fear the American citizens of that state has because of the increase of criminal activity.Governor Jan Brewer should be commended for taking steps necessary to protect the citizens of Arizona, unlike Governor Swarzennegger who did not help his states' farmers regarding the water that was turned off because of government regulations. Then the "Obama" did a despicable act when he bribed two Representatives from California to vote yes on Obamacare in return for turning on some water. Some of these Statists are now calling for a boycott of Arizona, from tourism to the baseball team. Some gutless businesses have cancelled their conventions. We should find out which businesses they were and return the favor. All this because the Governor signed a law to try and help protect its citizens. Obama is quite the leader? I am going to buy an Arizona Diamondback Ball Cap.

Financial Reform BS

The Republicans need to mention that prime culprits Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac are not included in the financial reform bill. Then they need to talk about the architects of the bill, Barney Frank and Chris Dodd and expose their involvement in the financial crisis. (There are you-tube videos of them showing their involvement). Regarding the bill, who will determine what is a good risk from a bad one? That leads to the problem of giving the government (Obama & Geithner) control over these institutions, with intimidation and coercion; and if the institutions do not cooperate with the Obama administration, they will be put out of business. After all it's the CHICAGO WAY. They should also point out the contributions made by these financial firms to the Democrats. Speaking of lobbyists, Goldman Sachs CEO came to the Whitehouse 4 times, contributed over a million dollars to Obama’s campaign, and will want payback. This leads to the coincidence of the timing by the SEC of the investigation against Goldman Sachs to push for financial reform, which the Obama administration claims they had nothing to do with. Goldman Sachs need not worry though, because as I said they contributed immensely to get Obama elected and they are one of the institutions that will be implementing Cap and Trade. Obama mentions he wants to get the money back for the taxpayers and he is going to charge a fee to the banks to set up a slush/bailout fund. Where does he think the banks are going to get the money? They are going to get it from their CUSTOMERS, the American taxpayers. This financial reform bill is nothing more than a powrer grab and ultimately will be costly to the American citizen by increased bank fees. I hope that the Republicans can get the message out and the Senate Republicans will not cave and go along with this scheme.

Joe Klein and Sedition

Libs/Statists like Joe Klein, Joe Heilemann, Chris Matthews and Bill Maher call the patriotic Tea-Party Protesters and any other people who oppose President Barack Hussein Obama’s policies disparaging names such as tea-baggers, racists, KKK members and mobsters etc.

Joe Klein stated, “…I looked up the definition of sedition and it says conduct or language inciting rebellion against the authority of the state. A lot of the statements especially Glen Beck and Sarah Palin’s come right up close to being seditious.”

Klein and his ilk are the propaganda wing of the Obama administration. They are trying their best to demonize and silence anyone who opposes Obama’s radical agenda.


Well Joe, the definition of sedition is: an illegal action (emphasizing illegal) inciting resistance to lawful authority and tending to cause the disruption or overthrow of the government. The protesters you are talking about are exercising their rights under the First Amendment of the Constitution, which states, Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances. So Joe, you might want to look that up.

While you are at it, may I suggest you look up the oath of office for the President and the Congressman where they swear to uphold the Constitution. Their oath’s are as follows:

The oath of the President of the United States:
I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States.

The oath of Congressman:
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.

Then review the Declaration of Independence and focus on the following two paragraphs that states what the people must do when the Government becomes too oppressive or tyranical and that is why the Second Amendment is so important and it states, A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a Free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

…Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government,…

…when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security…

You and your ilk may learn that the people you are trying to silence care about their country and are exercising their rights under the Constitution. They want to peacably change through the ballot box the destructive course the Obama administration has this country on.

Obama's Oil Ploy

Is President Barack Hussein Obama now in favor of drilling for oil? A closer look says, “No”.

In the State of the Union address Obama stated, “…. It means making tough decisions about opening new offshore areas for oil and gas development…” On March 30th, 2010 President Obama opened up offshore exploration of oil off the coast of Virginia. Some people may say “HOORAY, what took you so long.” Others like environmentalist would disagree, because they mostly do not want anything to do with oil. Is he serious about drilling for oil? Does he really mean it? Remember, he says it is just for exploration not drilling.

However, in September 2008, President George W. Bush signed a consolidated appropriations bill that funded government operations, but also included in the bill was the lifting of a ban on offshore drilling. Drilling had been off-limits for 27 years in the Outer Continental Shelf and with the signing of the bill the oil industry is free to lease the areas. Earlier in the year 2008 Bush lifted an executive moratorium on oil and gas leasing offshore.

Obama says and implies he wants to expand exploration and drilling for oil but, he has restricted exploration on the west coast, south of Alaska, parts of the Gulf of Mexico and on the east coast north of Virginia. He canceled or rescinded the drilling leases that were to go in effect on parts of the west coast. Also a federal judge has suspended oil and gas leases in Montana, so studies can be done on how the field activities might contribute to climate change. Before the ban can be lifted a new round of environmental reviews will have to take place.

In essence, Obama is allowing for exploration where the oil may not be instead of where it is. He is basically saying to oil companies, I’ll let you explore here for oil off the coast of Virginia. The oil companies say we don’t know if there is oil there, but we know there are reserves elsewhere, such as in Anwar or off the west coast, why not let us explore and drill there. No, if you want to explore you can only do it where I say you can.

Energy is a matter of National Security, because oil/gasoline is the lifeblood of our economy and America would not be held hostage by OPEC anymore, with the rigs being on American territory thus we would be more secure. To rein in costs to help the American people, the United States needs an energy policy that works, which includes drilling where the oil is, nuclear power, clean coal and other alternative fuel sources as long as it is not from the food chain. Another problem leading to the high cost of fuel is the lack of refineries in this country and the regulations imposed by the EPA on them to refine different grades of fuel throughout the country. Due to the EPA regulations and the fact that there hasn’t been a refinery built in this country for decades leads to higher costs, because of supply and demand.

So what was the reason for the big announcement From President Obama? Could it be he wants to get credit where credit is not due, because Congress passed a bill opening up the Outer Continental Shelf to offshore drilling in 2008? Could it be that gasoline prices are going up so he can say it’s not his fault, he agreed to open up for offshore exploration? He will then demonize the oil companies, claiming they are evil and will call for a windfall profits tax on them. Could it be it is a carrot to the Republican’s to try to get passed the Cap and Trade legislation?

He says he is going to lift the ban on offshore drilling, even though it was lifted in 2008, and yet he restricts it where it was previously lifted. So is he really serious about becoming energy independent or is it just a ploy to get the Cap and Tax bill passed, which will give the Government more control over our lives? Only time will tell, but speaking of his track record on promises I would say no.
