Whats Obama gonna close now?by jeffli6 with no comments yet
Would the real number change some views on amnesty?
The number being tossed around about how many illegals are in the United States is 11.5 million, but how can you be sure? The numbers are calculated in surveys done by the PEW Hispanic Center (a non-profit Hispanic advocacy group backed by Obama bundler George Kaisers family foundation) and parroted by DHS.
On April 26, 2006 the Pew Hispanic Center (PHC) estimated that in March 2005 the number of illegal immigrants in the U.S. ranged from 11.5 to 12 million individuals.This number was derived by a statistical method known as the “residual method“. According to the General Accounting office the residual estimation (1) starts with a census count or survey estimate of the number of foreign-born residents who have not become U.S. citizens and (2) subtracts out estimated numbers of legally present individuals in various categories, based on administrative data and assumptions (because censuses and surveys do not ask about legal status). here
So the people asking questions don’t ask the question, brilliant!
Bear Stearns‘ investigators  came up with another way to attack this very difficult problem. They made the assumption that the amount of remittances (money sent back to Mexico) is directly proportional to the number of Mexican immigrants in the United States. They conclude that the number of illegal immigrants in the United States may well be twice the official number put out by the U.S. Census and may be 20 million people or higher. here
Bear Sterns method seems a bit more reliable than the
guesses assumptions made by DHS and a Obama backed non-profit.
James Walsh, former associate general counsel to the INS, says in his paper, none of the government “experts” “has a clue as to the exact number,” he says, “but this does not keep them from crafting estimates to fit their own agenda. …My estimate of 38 million illegal aliens residing in the United States is calculated using a conservative annual rate of entry (allowing for deaths and returns to their homeland) of three illegal aliens entering the United States for each one apprehended,” he explains. here

Excellent piece, go forth and ponder. Here
Joseph Story wrote in his 1833 Commentaries on the Constitution:
“Let the American youth never forget, that they possess a noble inheritance, bought by the toils, and sufferings, and blood of their ancestors; and capacity, if wisely improved, and faithfully guarded, of transmitting to their latest posterity all the substantial blessings of life, the peaceful enjoyment of liberty, property, religion, and independence.”
The Obama years will be forever known as the Dark Ages of US history, a time of political, cultural and economic deterioration. We have yet to see if they will lead to the fall of the American republic.
In the Obama years, the lie became not only a campaign strategy or a means to enact damaging policies, but an institution of government; the Presidency itself, a lie of monstrous proportions guarded by the complicit and the willingly ignorant. Keep Reading….

Much like the squabble over the government shutdown a few years back, the DHS funding bill is essentially the same thing, just on a smaller scale. Conservatives need to hold their ground and say no to a clean bill.
Shut it down. Don’t blink. This is the only way for Republicans in both houses to show what power of the purse really means, and at the same time stopping the unconstitutional actions of a failed president.
The DHS is a duplication of efforts anyway. What does DHS do that the FBI, CIA, NSA, and ATF don’t already do as far as limiting terrorists activity? Border security can be done by national guard, there is no need to be in a rush to cave under democratic or media pressure, but I repeat myself.
“What McConnell has isn’t a plan but a cop out,” said Tristan Daedalus, the spokesman. “The whole point of restricting funds from being used for unconstitutional orders inside the funding bill for the Department of Homeland Security is to exercise the power of the purse. By divorcing these two pieces of the bill, the Majority Leader is showing that he is more concerned with acquiescing to the ridiculous demands of the Democratic Caucus than for standing up for the institution of Congress.”

I have reached the age where cynical is my definition of optimism. Any optimism I had when the GOP took both houses lies somewhere between “it could be worse” and “were doomed”. This version of the federal government is basically the gate keepers of bad policy.
With the GOP now playing political volleyball with Obama, it looks like they are going to cave on amnesty. The majority handed to them in the mid-terms seems to have been for naught, establishment Republicans are running for political cover and handing conservatives a worthless vote intended to give themselves an out. In the end a clean DHS funding bill is on its way and there is nothing we can do about it.
“I’ve indicated to the Democratic leader that I’d be happy to have his cooperation to advance the consideration of a clean DHS bill which would carry us through till September 30th,” McConnell said to press Tuesday.
Then, he would hold a vote Friday to defund President Obama’s executive action on immigration, as a consolation prize for conservatives in the House and Senate who have pushed to tie the two issues together.

Yeah I know there is no “Glory” to this story but that’s all I kept thinking in my mind as I watched the video, the guts, glory, truck commercial. This gals faith may ruin her, and the fact she had a warm relationship with person suing her is even more amazing. Good woman. H/T Moonbattery

The irony of all of this is the failure of good intended programs make the case for smaller government.
The galling thing is that most of the state and municipal problems can be solved by the state and municipal governments doing their jobs as they used to do fifty years ago. Cities need to police the streets, put out fires, run the schools and keep the streets repaired. That’s it. States have other things like ports and highways, but there are no new challenges facing human societies that require novel solutions. But, the sociopaths in politics can’t bray about those mundane things so they launch new programs and abandon their duties.
Do your jobs, at all levels, keep your damn fingers and good intentions to your selves. If you want to save the world join the Peace Corps, other than that leave us alone.

It’s the Antoninus problem. Antoninus was the emperor who followed Hadrian. Everyone knows something about Hadrian, the guy who left the famous wall in Britain. No one knows anything about Antoninus because nothing interesting happened in his 23 year reign. There were no wars, great economic troubles or revolts. It was one of the most peaceful and prosperous times for the empire. But, no one one remembers him because nothing big happened. Our pols want to be remembered so they are always casting about for something big to do. Keep Reading…..
“Researching Scott Walker’s college years is called “vetting”. Researching Obama’s college years is called “racism.”by jeffli6 with 1 comment
Striking terror into the hearts and minds of jihads everywhere is our top military experts Jen and Marie. These two are obviously smarter than everyone in the room so they will need to talk down to Americans as not to be too “nuanced” for our understanding. Romper Room war policy has never been in better hands, congratulations are in order for the man who hired these two intellectual elites, Barack Obama.
That being said, there are some who do not agree with the new jobs program proposed by the great minds in the Obama regime.
War is one of the few things in life we can reliably kill our way out of. The United States has had a great track record of killing our way out of wars. We killed our way out of WW1. We killed our way out of WW2. The problem began when we stopped trying to kill our way out of wars and started trying to hug our way out of wars instead. Progressive academics added war to economics, terrorism and the climate in the list of subjects they did not understand and wanted to make certain that no one else was allowed to understand. Because the solution to war is so obvious that no progressive could possibly think of it.
Bingo. Hugging our way out of war is what has us going back to Iraq.
Harf’s argument is a familiar one. There was a time when progressive reformers had convinced politicians that we couldn’t arrest, shoot, imprison or execute our way out of crime.
When your bosses only experience is progressive reform via community organizing we shouldn’t be that surprised. Of course Obama being a closet muslim is another reason.
We couldn’t stop crime by fighting crime. Instead the root causes of crime had to be addressed. The police became social workers and criminals overran entire cities. The public demanded action and a new wave of mayors got tough on crime. While the sociologists, social workers, activists and bleeding hearts wailed that it wouldn’t work, surprisingly locking up criminals did stop them from committing crimes. Keep Reading….
Don’t get me wrong here, I hate to see America tangled up in another war, but after Obama gave away everything we did, we now have to go back. So we might as well quit pussy footin’ around.by jeffli6 with 1 comment
