ALOHA, ALL!!! Don’t recognize the statement in the title? We might as well change the inscription on the Statue of Liberty to those words. Yes, something needs to be done about immigration – we badly need reform and a policy that that makes sense. But should we not secure the borders first? Should we not realize that there are millions here currently who are breaking the law? The current immigration reform bill being discussed has tons of flaws, not the least of which it does nothing to make our borders safer and that it will truly bankrupt the country. Great overview from The Heritage Foundation: 5 Ways The Immigration Bill is Like Obamacare Highlights:
- Extreme Costs - The Government Accountability Office now projects that under the most realistic scenario, Obamacare will add $6.2 trillion to the primary deficit over the next 75 years.
- False Promises - On immigration, Heritage President Jim DeMint told CNBC’s Larry Kudlow this week: “I’ve heard a lot of promises about bills that have gone through Congress. …The only thing that I know about this bill is that it’s going to give legal status and eventual citizenship to those who came here unlawfully. The rest are just promises.”
- You Have To Pass It To See What’s In It - The immigration bill gives over congressional authority to federal agencies, allowing unelected bureaucrats to think up all the details later.
- Piles On Already Broken – And Broke – Entitlement Programs - The immigration bill would add millions to the number of people on various taxpayer-funded benefits, from Medicare and Social Security to welfare.
- Perks for Special Interests – The immigration bill is carrying all sorts of special-interest goodies—not to mention a bonanza for immigration lawyers.
So let’s hope that Senator Jeff Sessions is correct when he says the tide is beginning to turn against the gang of Eight’s immigration bill. As Senator Sessions said, ”as we examine it, we realize that this is going to be a disaster.” (BTW, click HERE to read the story about the beheaded Statue of Liberty. The perps made a video showing the statue being decapitated and pulverized, with the words “Death to America.” Gee….who does that sound like??)

ALOHA, ALL!! Did you hear that? It’s the awful sucking sound of Obama’s campaign sinking like the Titanic. He needed to be Presidential in the final debate and was anything but. He was a petty, petulant, pissed prevaricator. Here’s a great overview of some of the lies: Fact Checking Obama – Ten Lies And Counting As always, The Heritage Foundation gave an excellent analysis: Final Presidential Debate 2012: Experts’ Analyses And Reactions. But I gotta say, I like my friend NEO’s description the best: ”Obama looked like a first time candidate for city-council, Romney looked and sounded like the President of the United States of America, in the line of Washington, Lincoln, Roosevelt, Kennedy, and Reagan.” Yep. Send in the clowns.
Speaking of clowns…The Ties That Biden ”How was it that HillStone, a newcomer in the business of home building, landed a massive and potentially lucrative contract to build 100,000 homes in war-torn Iraq? Richter didn’t mince words. It really helps, he said, to have “the brother of the vice president as a partner,” according to a person who was present. The “brother” Richter was referring to during the meeting is James Biden, the younger brother of Vice President Joe Biden.” And one Ohio voter didn’t mince words with Jovial Joe: Voter Tells Bide He’s A ‘Good Guy’ But Bad VP Frankly, I don’t even think he’s a good guy.
Joe’s fans probably think “JOBS” is a three letter word. Check this out: Spelling Is Hard
And isn’t this special! Dump: Administration Delivers Subpoenaed Benghazi Docs Hours Before Debate ”According to Rep. Rogers, files and documents that his committee had been waiting for were finally delivered yesterday at 5:00 PM, just hours before the final Presidential Debate that focused on foreign policy. “It certainly appears to me at at first blush that there was a a political interpretation and that’s always a dangerous thing. I think they put November 6th ahead of our national security.”
BOMBSHELL – Why the dump. New Emails Reveal That The White House Knew Far More About Benghazi Than They Admit ”These emails now cast more doubt on the Administration then ever before. They reveal that the White House knew that a terrorist group claimed responsibility for the attack even though they spent more than two weeks claiming that the attack was the result of a spontaneous protest over a YouTube video that was placed online back in July. This now makes it hard for anyone not to be suspicious of what else the White House and the President knew.”
Go ahead – make his day.
Bayonets can’t save Obama. Sorry Mr President, But The Troops DO Need Horses And Bayonets! “For most soldiers, a bayonet or other type of blade is the second most important weapon, behind only the rifle. As well as being a combat weapon, bayonets are used as multipurpose knives while troops are being deployed overseas. Horses are less important to modern methods of fighting, but they have not yet been entirely phased out. In 2001, the first U.S. troops to enter Afghanistan did so by riding into the country alongside America’s allies in the Northern Alliance.” And we also need ships: Republicans Try To Sink The President On His Comment Over Battleship ”Republicans believe the comments could become a political liability for the president, particularly in the critical battleground states of Florida and Virginia, which are home to major shipyards…GOP vice presidential nominee Rep. Paul Ryan (Wis.) also shot back against the president’s verbal jab during a Tuesday interview on CBS’s “This Morning.” “The ocean hasn’t shrunk,” Ryan said. “You still have to have enough ships to have the footprint that you need … to keep our strength abroad where it needs to be.”
Gee – why don’t we hear about the crowds at the candidates’ rallies this time? It couldn’t possibly be because Obama is drawing fewer than Romney, could it? (Yes, I’m being snarky) Romney Packs Red Rocks “Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan held a rally at a packed Red Rocks Park and Amphitheater in Morrison, Colo., tonight. It was a sight to behold.”
Remember where you heard the “L” word first (Shaka to Cindy for the link). Romney Landslide Possibilities Emerge “When Americans get tired of lies, chaos creation, condescending tones and crisis makeup-with corresponding management, voter step in to put an end to the mess! That is what is happening ….The polls are quite likely far beyond the reported 5 points and out of reach for denial by Obama, and he and supporters grasp at straws in desperation.” BUT WE CAN’T GET COMPLACENT! BE SURE TO VOTE!! AND KEEP UP THE PRESSURE ON FAMILY AND FRIENDS.
These people – who are the future of America – are counting on us.

It looks like the oh-so-smug intelligensia at News”weak” see the writing on the wall and realize they must stop being Obama’s PR machine. Do they smell a landslide in November?

GO. SEE. THIS. MOVIE!!! I wrote about “2016 – Obama’s America” last week. I saw the movie last Friday – it’s riveting! Try to bring a friend with you who is undecided or a so-so Obama supporter (don’t waste your time with the Kool-Ade drinkers). This movie does the vetting of Obama that the lamestream media refused to do. Here’s a teaser:
And just in case you think the movie is a flash-in-the-pan, it’s already the #12 box office all-time grossing documentary film! Go to the the website to find a theater near you: 2016 The Movie Even in the bluest of blue states, Hawaii, the showings have been jam-packed and sold out. Let’s make it the #1 documentary of all time and annoy Al Gore & Michael Moore – yes we can!!! It’s the antidote to stupidity like this:
Who’s your brother? A segment of the movie 2016 focuses on Obama’s family in Kenya, and a fascinating interview occurs with Dinesh D’Souza and Barack’s half-brother, George. It turns out that George considers Dinesh to be more of a brother to him than Barack: How I Became George Obama’s ‘Brother’ Check this out: ”I asked George, “Why are you coming to me?” He said, “I have no one else to ask.” Then he said something that astounded me, “Dinesh, you are like a brother to me.” BTW, I was honored to meet Dinesh last year in Honolulu. He was here speaking for an event sponsored by The Heritage Foundation.

ALOHA, ALL!! Faithful HDR readers know I’m a staunch Buckeye – I bleed scarlet & gray! But today I gotta give shakas to people from two rival territories: Scott Walker from Wisconsin and Tim Tebow from Florida. YOU GUYS ROCK!! Net Gain of 33,000 jobs in Wisconsin in Scott Walker’s First Year ”Barrett’s campaign is accusing Walker of cherry-picking data and playing politics by accelerating the publication of the CEW results. However, the accusation of cherry-picking is nonsense. The CEW is an actual census of employers in the state, not a survey based on a sample of households.” But some people are very unhappy with Walker – his opponents: Pro Scott Walker Signs Burned On Private Property Nice. If you can’t beat ‘em, torch ‘em! Here’s why they’re not happy, poor babies: Walker, Kleefisch Lead In Recall June 5 – GO WALKER!! Ten Tips for Tim Tebow ”A good, God fearing man, born to Christian missionaries, comes to New York to help the team win. How will he handle the Big City, and will the media give him a chance?” GO TEBOW! In Other News: Team Romney WILL beat Team Obama. Here’s why: Romney’s team is smart – they are staying positive and focused. They refuse to get pulled into the mire of what Super PACs might do (the PACs will do whatever they want anyhow.) Then there’s this. Obama in Tight Primary Race in Arkansas Yep….right in Clinton Country he’s only 7 points ahead of an unknown! And here’s how Team Romney is using this: ”Seeking to attract Democrats and independents who supported the last Democratic president, Romney has taken to lavishing praise at every turn on Clinton’s boom-era ’90s policies while contrasting them unfavorably with President Barack Obama’s old-school, Big Government ways.” I repeat….Team Romney WILL beat Team Obama. Obama budget voted down. Again. 99-0. A Glimmer of Hope for the American Dream ”Compare the President’s proposal — and Reid’s total lack of a proposal — with the four plans offered by conservatives in Congress, chief among them being Senator Mike Lee’s (R-UT) budget, which mirrors the bold and thorough reforms The Heritage Foundation first proposed in its Saving the American Dream plan. That includes limiting the size of the federal government, reforming entitlement programs, and simplifying the federal tax code in an effort to restore our nation’s economic prosperity and ensure that future generations are not saddled with today’s debt.” Harry Reid – epic FAIL! Senate Rejects Five Budget Plans “Democrats can’t even put a plan on a piece of paper,” said Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, a Kentucky Republican. “As far as I can tell, their only plan is to take shots at our plans and hope nobody notices that they don’t have one of their own.” The votes, he said, will show the public “who’s got a plan to fix the mess we’re in and who doesn’t.” WHY ARE WE STILL BUYING OIL FROM VENEZUELA?? Dick Morris explains in this video how Iran is shipping missiles to Chavez – missiles that can easily strike the US. The story that just won’t go away. I wonder why? Proof Obama Born in Kenya? Obama Literary Agent Says So ”Breitbart News has obtained a promotional booklet produced in 1991 by Barack Obama’s then-literary agency, Acton & Dystel, which touts Obama as “born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia and Hawaii.” UPDATE: Literary Agent Now Claims “Fact-Checking Error.” OK…so why did Obama say ”I am so proud to come back home”? While speaking in Kenya in 2006???? Is this also a “fact-checking error?” GREAT video from Susan B Anthony List! Final Thought: “Any time you give a man something he doesn’t earn, you cheapen him.

ALOHA, ALL! It’s finally here – Obamacare gets its day(s) in court. Here are a few links that will help sort out all the legalese. Interesting how something that was already confusing and pedantic can become even more so.
The Obamacare Hydra | FrontPage Magazine ”The Hydra was a mythical swamp beast whose multiple heads grew back after being severed. Obamacare is a real Washington monster whose countless hidden bureaucracies keep sprouting forth even after they’re rooted out.” Michelle Malkin hits it out of the park again with this one!
What to Expect During the Supreme Court Hearings for Obamacare ”Six hours of oral argument will be conducted in four sessions, spread over three days. That’s what the Supreme Court has allocated for the cases challenging the constitutionality of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (aka Obamacare).” This gives a day-by-day account of what to expect.
In Pictures: The Impact of Obamacare ”The Heritage Foundation’s re-launched version of “Obamacare in Pictures: Visualizing the Effects of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act” shows through new charts and graphs Obamacare’s far-reaching negative effects on Americans.” This is a great resource! Shows that the so-called “Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act” is anything but.

Republicans Have A Radical Plan To Reform Health Care, But They Are Afraid To Talk About It – Investors.com ”What makes this Republican approach so radical is that it would replace all government tax and spending subsidies for the purchase of private health insurance with a fixed-sum tax credit — essentially giving every American the same number of dollars to apply to their health insurance, regardless of where they obtain it.” Gee, that could NEVER work now could it?!

ALOHA, ALL! So how’s that new 0bama outreach and engagement of the enemy working out for us? In his infinite wisdom, Barry thought we just needed to show people who hate us and want to kill us that we want to talk to them. That we want to negotiate with them. That we want to be their friends. He is so wrong and over his head, and now the true picture of how he has endangered us is emerging. I give you this excellent analysis from the Heritage Foundation: How the Obama Doctrine Has Failed Key point: ”In the course of three years, President Obama has pursued a foreign policy that has left America less secure today and even more at risk tomorrow. A nuclear Iran, a failed Afghanistan and Iraq, an unfriendly Egypt, an Israel at risk, and an underfunded military are all serious concerns for the American people. Rather than continue pursuing the ill-advised Obama Doctrine, it is time for the President to put defending America first and appeasing our enemies last. That is a doctrine the American people can depend on.” #wecantwait

ALOHA, ALL!!! Yes, it seems we’ve been here before. A hostage crisis, a feckless president, a powder-keg situation. How will it end? While that remains to be seen, we know that the current situation is dangerous. We know that the United Sates, under this president, has lost respect around the world. We know that Americans in many foreign countries aren’t safe. Heck, some are being held hostage and Barry is doing nothing….nada….zero zilch. How will it end? That’s up to us in November.

The Tipping Point is here. Dependence on Government Highest in History ”The Heritage Foundation’s 2012 Index of Dependence on Government shows an alarming trend under the Obama Administration of a level of dependence on our government that has never been seen before. Today, a full 70 percent of the federal government’s budget goes to pay for housing, food, income, student aid, or other assistance, with recipients ranging from college students to retirees to welfare beneficiaries.”

UPDATE: In the last HDR I wrote about the changes in combat pay. An alert reader and military member sent me this explanation: ”On “combat pay”: The change simply says that an individual gets paid only for the days they are in the hostile-fire zone. In Kosovo, we had people get sent down from USAREUR (U.S. ARmy in EURope) in Germany for, oh, a single day per month, and then collect hostile-fire pay for the whole month. It was not exactly a morale-builder that people could do that. All in all, it’s not a bad change.” So if the military is OK with this, then I am too. At least for now. But why do I not trust a single thing this administration does?

ALOHA, ALL!! By now you’ve heard that 0bama rejected the Keystone Pipeline project, showing once again that for him, politics trumps what’s best for America. This obvious move to appease his enviro-leftist supporters is an outrage. Here are some facts you need to know (shaka to Ericka at The Heritage Foundation):
1) Obama’s “Forced” Keystone Decision Rejects Jobs, Energy, and Logic
- Obama’s decision to reject Keystone sent a clear message that special interest demands are of more importance than more energy and much-needed job creation.
- Building the pipeline would bring over 700,000 barrels of oil per day and directly create 20,000 truly shovel-ready jobs.
- The Canadian Energy Research Institute estimates that current pipeline operations and the addition of the Keystone XL pipeline would create 179,000 American jobs by 2035.
- Keystone XL also met 57 specific pipeline safety standard requirements created by DOS and the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA).
- Senators Max Baucus (D–MT), Jon Tester (D–MT), Joe Manchin (D–WV), Ben Nelson (D–NE), Mark Begich (D–AK), and Mary Landrieu (D–LA) have all expressed support for the pipeline.
- The President’s own jobs council underscored the need for not only more oil, natural gas, and coal but also energy infrastructure project
2) Under Obama, Oil and Gas Production on Federal Lands Is Down 40%.
- The vast majority of America’s oil and gas production is happening on private lands in states like North Dakota, Alaska and Texas.
- Oil and natural gas production on federal lands is down by more than 40 percent compared to 10 years ago.
- Under the Obama administration, 2010 had the lowest number of onshore leases issued since 1984
- The Obama administration held only one offshore lease sale in 2011.
ALOHA, ALL!! Did you ever think the day would come when we’d have a second-rate military? Looks like that time is here. 0bama plans to cut “tens of thousands” of ground troops in the near future in favor of more air and sea power (hmmm…isn’t he trying to make the Navy buy expensive biofuels to power their ships? Oops! We’re not supposed to connect those dots.) At any rate, I know I’m just an ordinary peon citizen, but isn’t the primary duty of our government to protect its citizens? Shouldn’t we have superiority is ALL areas of combat? A couple of links:

ALOHA, ALL!! Surprise! The so-called “Super” Committee failed to come to an agreement over how to solve the debt crisis. Did anyone doubt that it was set up to fail from the beginning? (If you did then I have some beautiful ocean-front property to sell you in Hawaii for $100.) So now what? It’s obvious that the plan to include the automatic defense cuts was no fluke – Barry and his comrades want to gut our military. (If you doubt that, I have some beautiful ocean-front property to sell you in Hawaii for $1000. Yes, the price is going up.) In the days to come, we’ll learn more about what went on at those ”Super” meetings, but here’s a guess: Dems wanted to raise taxes and not touch entitlements. In fact, were entitlements even on the table with either party? Here’s the best article I’ve seen so far on this “Super” failure (thanks to Lee for the link): Defenseless: America in the 21st Century And lest you forget:

The move was taken in deference to environmentalists, on the pretext of studying the effects of hydraulic fracturing.”
Once again, it pays to be a FOB (Friend of Barry).

Turkey Talk. I got this from a friend who is not a goof-ball. So be aware when buying that Thanksgiving bird: Please be aware that Butterball turkeys are halal certified. We received a turkey from Bob’s employer that is a Butterball & Bob saw something about Butterball being halal certified. He went to the Butterball website & it is true. We returned the turkey for a generic. Publix refused to take the turkey back for an exchange so her went to Winn Dixie & they willingly exchanged it for us.
Halal certified means that when the turkey is killed the butcher must be Islam sane & utter worship words to Allah that I do not know how to spell. Then a muslim prayer must be said over the carcasses as well. Not sure how to spell- a bismuh? The throat is cut- carotids, jugulars & trachea all @ once. Not to gross anyone out, but I am finding more & more halal certified meat @ the store & I refuse to buy it. I refuse to give retailers any money that participate in this if I can help it.
Check out this article from Pamela Geller: Articles: Happy Halal Thanksgiving. Indeed. I found this site: IFANCA: Halal Food Certification ”Welcome to IFANCA, the leading Halal-food certification organization in North America. Halal certification gives companies access to Muslim consumers. IFANCA’s Halal Symbol (the Crescent ‘M’) helps Muslims in choosing their goods, assured that what they are buying is Halal without doubt.” And ”Halal Certification is the process of having a qualified independent third party supervise the production of consumables, attesting that they were produced in conformity with the preparation and ingredient standards of the halal lifestyle.” Seriously? What is the “halal lifestyle”? From now on, I am boycotting ANY products that have this certification. Look for this:
