“Give Me Your Radicals, Your Criminals….

Your huddled masses, yearning to destroy me.”

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??)

And these are the ones who want in.  Durbin Defends Rallying With Communists and Anarchists  Check out how Durbin justifies his presence at this May Day rally of malcontents and law breakers.  He has the nerve to use The Constitution!

Speaking of Obamacare.  42% of Americans Don’t Even Know Obamacare is Law  Brilliant.

Inscription on the Statue of Liberty:

 Give me your tired, your poor,

Your huddled masses, yearning to breath free,

The wretched refuse of your teeming shore,

Send these, the homeless, tempest tost to me,

I lift my lamp beside the golden door.

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 clownsThe 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.”

View of the crowd at Red Rocks from the stage. Those are all people. Real people.

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.
