Everyone knows the Mexican-American war from the history books.
Wars end with borders drawn and terms agreed. Or, they used to.
Except that past string of corporate-owned politicians in Washington have ignored the border and instead have misappropriated resources of Border Patrol so that it’s a joke. How did all those kids get here?
Now, it looks – just as I predicted before the election in no uncertain terms – like the Obama administration will roll out its 10-point plan next week which would let 3.7% of Mexico’s population to take up permanent residency here.
Democrats apparently have big hearts and don’t mind empty wallets (as long as they’re someone else’s): The Washington Examiner notes that 42 percent of Medicaid signups are from immigrants and their US born offspring (used is the term anchor babies which isn’t a polite term).
The timing after the election is clear: The administration will be moving as quickly as possible to roll the 4.5 million into America before the republican controlled congress and senate start blocking funds.
In the meantime, I’d like to congratulate the Obama administration for undoing the outcome of the Mexican-American war as part of the ongoing corporatist agenda to create a North American Union which will eventually do for our quality of life what the European Union has done for countries like Greece and Cyprus.
Way to go, O and ya’ll in the poor excuse for a congress.
By failing to enforce our southern border, they’re now about to unwind 166 years of American history because we failed to address the low-intensity conflict and the drug cartels that are rotting Mexico from the inside. When Mexico falls, it will be by our hand.
The sad truth is there would not be drug cartels without a ready U,S. market and the porous border allows for exactly that.
Consequently, our taxes will go up, Mexico will continue to deteriorate, and the democrats will once again proclaim a great victory for “the people.” Along with the CANAMEX highway and the Mexican trucks now displacing American rigs. Yessir, fine defeat, this one. Way to frigging go.
For the record, I am a firm supporter of legal immigration. The Executive branch, unilaterally deciding to impose a tolerance polity is not in my view, legal immigration. It’s an imperial presidency.
Both sides of my family, decades ago stood in the lines at Ellis Island. It insults their integrity to allow short-cutters including many with criminal records to remain here.
I won’t bore you with more opinion. There’s legal immigration (good) and there’s tolerance policies and ignoring the law of the land (bad). We’ve lost the ability to distinguish between the two. To wit:
8 U.S. Code § 1325 – Improper entry by alien
(a) Improper time or place; avoidance of examination or inspection; misrepresentation and concealment of facts
Any alien who
(3) attempts to enter or obtains entry to the United States by a willfully false or misleading representation or the willful concealment of a material fact, shall, for the first commission of any such offense, be fined under title 18 or imprisoned not more than 6 months, or both, and, for a subsequent commission of any such offense, be fined under title 18, or imprisoned not more than 2 years, or both.
So that’s the law on the book. The job of the President is to make sure the laws of America are being faithfully carried out. However, now that law is going to be shopped and chopped.
Amnesty not approved by both houses of congress is simply not legal regardless of the whiners who don’t support LEGAL immigration.
If you’re not sure about how drugs trump politics, yet, go read about the record smack crop coming from Afghanistan.
Street crime is so bad in America that cities like Seattle, for one, won’t even send a police officer to a car break-in, some have claimed. Car break-ins are so common the local paper up there calls it a “New Growth Industry.”
Thinking cap on? The money from this thieving industry goes for what, mostly?
If you think I’m disgusted and appalled by the Obama apparatchik’s plans…a green star for the day. I don’t appreciate people who can’t connect dots.
More after this,.,,
Continued to rally Wednesday but are back to about flat this morning..
With a coming deadlock between the republican house and senate and the fellow on Pennsylvania Avenue, looks like not much of anything will get done in the next two years and that’s what?
Good for business.
Political Correctness Disease
Of course, we already knew we could land on comets and blow them up if necessary…I mean hasn’t Hollywood done two or three flicks showing just that?
Meantime, that 4.8 quake in Kansas is no doubt due to all the fracking going on up that way. It was felt in Fracklahoma.
As the wastewater wells come along, you can bet this will be pressure to depopulate the region because of the water pollution problems for local wells that could be years in discovery and decades in recovery. Bye to small farmers, hello to those elitist “no humans, natural habitats of Agenda 21…” (We’re slow-cooked frogs in ‘Merica.)
The good news (sort of) is that the Energy Information Administration has slashed energy price forecasts for next year and if they go low enough, that will start to lay down rigs. And that will slow fracking….
And the price of crude was down into the high $76 range on futures markets this morning.
Warren Buffett has snapped up Duracell for Berkshire. Maybe he wants Tom Bodett’s job.
(Too obscure for you? Bodett is the “”We’ll keep the light on for you…” voice actor for Motel 6. Duracell…light on….oh, I give up. Until tomorrow, anyway…)
