9. Read page 3 of Laffer Center For Supply Side Economics Analysis, what you need to know about taxes. If these results apply to states, when comparing them one to another, then by extrapolation, they should also apply to countries in the same way. Personal income growth in low tax countries will outperform personal income growth in high tax countries. These are critical factors as new tax policies come to the forefront of debate in America.
Today is a tragically sad day in American history. Tonight, the president violated his oath of office and threw this country into a constitutional crisis by legalizing at least 4.5 million illegal aliens. The truth, is that number will be far larger.
As part of the illegal amnesty, Obama will unilaterally allow the parents of children in this country illegally, and the children of parents who are in this country illegally, to also emigrate freely to America. Adding insult to injury, according to the State Department, taxpayers will even be on the hook to fly illegal immigrants into the US, from El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras. Tonight, Obama spit in the eye of every poor sap who got in line, and followed the immigration laws passed to protect this country, the American people, our jobs and our way of life. In the process he devalued, yes devalued what it means to be an American citizen. Instead of it being something that people strive for, something that they work for, something that they dream for and that they follow our established laws for, he will give it away for nothing. In the process he will create a new lawless and dependent class within this country. The fallout will reverberate through our nation if not righted.
Perhaps the President’s efforts here are meant to block the repeal of Obama care by creating another firestorm crisis to overload the country’s ability to respond. Regardless of his desires or intent he knows that his actions are illegal. He’s clearly said so many times.
Now, the Republicans must govern. It’s time for them to take the Senate and with sound strategy march through a positive agenda for this country. They must unwind the destruction that’s been wrought, restore freedom, liberty and enable economic growth. It’s time to show leadership, and to reestablish the GOP’s credibility within the eyes of the American people.
– President Obama admits to changing US immigration law, in violation of his Oath of Office, and the Constitution.
President Obama has been vocal about his intent to legalize millions of illegal immigrants through executive action. Despite overwhelming Republican gains in Tuesday’s midterm election, the President plans to press on with his “pen and a phone”.
At his 5 Nov 14, post election Press Conference, President Obama stated:
“And, you know, I think that the best way, if folks are serious about getting immigration reform done, is going ahead and passing a bill and getting it to my desk. And then the executive actions that I take go away. They’re superseded by the law that is passed”.
How is it that President Obama’s Executive orders can supersede laws passed by Congress and signed by previous presidents, but new immigration laws supersede his Executive Orders? The U.S. Constitution is clear that the Executive Brach is charged with executing laws duly passed by Congress. The President can’t constitutionally write them away with his “pen”, and he clearly acknowledged the limits of the POTUS’s authority when he stated “They’re superseded by the law that is passed.” That makes his statement, and expected illegal amnesty, an even more egregious affront to the American people, and the rule of law.
I can’t think of any country in the world, other than the U.S., where illegal immigrants have more rights than that country’s citizens. No other country treats their citizens with such disdain. The truly ironic part is that the U.S. Constitution, our governing document, guarantees the rights of American citizens, not those who come here illegally. Let’s list the areas where illegal immigrants have rights that Americans, or legal immigrants for that matter, don’t.
- Murder/Manslaughter – Kate Steinle’s killer found “NOT GUILTY???”
- Break laws (illegal entry felonies), yet not be separated from their children
- Free Government funded travel across U.S. to reunite with “families”
- Allowed to miss mandatory court appearances, no repercussions
- Full access to welfare programs, fraud allowed
- Held up by the Federal Government as model Americans, and its future
- TSA allows to board airlines without verifiable IDs
- Can Assault US Border Patrol Agents
- Can wear their national flag festooned clothing (not “Old Glory”) on Cinco de Mayo (American citizens can’t wear US flags on their clothing, in America)
- Get preferential treatment by the media (even over border patrol agents)
- Allowed instate tuition (17 states).
- Given Preferential Admission to Colleges
I’m sure that there are some that I’ve missed. Please comment if you can add to the list. Bottom line: the current illegal immigration crisis is of President Obama and the Democrats’ making. The solution is clear: enforce our immigration laws, secure the border, humanly and quickly deport all who are crossing our borders illegally, and stop the criminal aliens from running free on our streets. If only the Democrat Party wanted to protect Americans first. The progressive modus operandi:
“The needs of the Progressive Agenda outweigh the needs of the few, or the many.”
– Another 90,000 Dangerous Illegal Aliens Released
– Immigrants entering US Southern Border getting more aggressive
– More criminal illegal aliens released upon the American people in 2014. “ICE also released 129,921 aliens from custody, 30,862 of whom were convicted criminals.”
Will America’s crime statistics trends slow or reverse as a result of Barack Obama’s immigration policies?According to the FBI, crime in the U.S. has been decreasing year to year since 2009 (excepting 2009 vs 2010). Under President Obama, Immigration Customs Enforcement (ICE), released over 36,000 criminal aliens in 2013. NOTE: Newly released DHS Information details 1000 of them have been convicted of new crimes since their release. Every day untold numbers of criminals flood across our southern border, hidden amongst the unaccompanied children, women and other illegal immigrants hoping to receive amnesty.
Important NOTE: Only approximately 15% of those crossing the border are “children”.
We should all be looking to America’s crime statistics for an uptick in violent crime within the states and across the country as these released criminal illegal immigrants are dispersing into every corner of our nation. It’s a good bet that so long as the government’s statistics continue to accurately portray the crimes committed in our nation, the results will be visible. I hope I’m wrong, for the sake of us all, but assuming that criminals and gang members, rapists and murderers will suddenly stop their activities because our president released them or allowed them free entry is grossly naive.
Let us watch America’s crime statistics looking for the fingerprints of Barack Obama’s and Democrat party policies, and pray that none of us experience them first hand!

Website devoted to the thousands of Americans killed by Illegal Aliens each year:
The recent flood of immigrants across America’s southern border is sparking heated discussions about what to do with the tens of thousands of children and other illegal immigrants swamping our border enforcement. Some say we should send them home, others say we should care for them, grant them amnesty, and welcome them as American citizens. The critical question that must be answered first is where is America’s breaking point?
Certainly the left would answer that the United States is the most powerful country on earth. Certainly we can care for a few tens of thousands or over time hundreds of thousands but starving helpless children. Taken as an isolated problem, the answer is of course yes, America could afford to care for them. The problem is, that this is not an isolated problem. Deciding to care for hundreds of thousands of new indigents is not America’s only burden. Collectively, they are becoming insurmountable.
This discussion requires an analogy to bring it into focus. Michael Phelps is the most decorated athlete in the history of Olympic sports. He currently has a total of 22 Olympic medals: 18 gold, 2 silver, and 2 bronze. His strength power and speed in the pool is legendary.
Let’s take Michael Phelps and say that he was in a lake surrounded by people struggling to stay afloat. Each one of them was carrying a small weight some the size of the BB, others a small rock, and still others weighing several pounds. In order to save their lives let us assume that Michael Phelps began to take on their burdens. From some he would take a BB, and the impact would be nearly unnoticeable at first. His ability to swim to the next struggling person and take on their weight unhampered. As Michael moved from drowning person to drowning person one can see a time when he would shift from being the rescuer to being in danger of drowning himself. At some point the weights that Michael Phelps would be forced to carry would drag under the greatest swimmer in the history of mankind.
This analogy is meant to show what many don’t understand. America does have limits. How many burdens can we take on before like Michael Phelps we would succumb to their combined weight and sink below the surface? America is $17.6 trillion in debt and climbing. The “War on Poverty” has cost the American tax payers $22 trillion so far. We’ve gone from adding BBs every year to adding large rocks as the weight of the interest on that debt mounts. Every month the percentage of people working in this country, acting as Michael Phelps, declines. Regulations, terrible burdens on businesses of all sizes, pour from nearly every federal agency. Obama care alone is responsible for tens of thousands of pages of regulations. America’s social safety net is at the point of collapse adding even more weight to a crop and economy struggling to stay afloat. The world is becoming ever more dangerous with a resurgent Russia, aggressive China, and spread of radical Islam. With all of these burdens, the cumulative affect of adding hundreds of thousands of more illegal immigrants to this country comes into focus. Where is America’s breaking point? All American’s should be frightened to face this question. America is the greatest force for freedom in the history of mankind, and yet now we must question how long she can stay afloat?
“William R. “Willie” Horton (born August 12, 1951) is an American convicted felon who, while serving a life sentence for murder (without the possibility of parole), was the beneficiary of a Massachusetts weekend furlough program. He did not return from his furlough, and ultimately he committed assault, armed robbery and rape.” Willie Horton was used as a bludgeon by George H.W. Bush’s campaign to effectively knock Michael Dukakis (D) out of the Presidential 1988 race. Wikipedia
Willie Horton was just ONE inmate. The Obama Administration has pushed to stop as many deportations as possible. According to a report from The Center for Immigration Studies:
“In 2013, ICE freed 36,007 convicted criminal aliens from detention who were awaiting the outcome of deportation proceedings…
The document reveals that the 36,007 convicted criminal aliens freed from ICE custody in many instances had multiple convictions. Among them, the 36,007 had nearly 88,000 convictions, including:
- 193 homicide convictions (including one willful killing of a public official with gun)
- 426 sexual assault convictions
- 303 kidnapping convictions
- 1,075 aggravated assault convictions
- 1,160 stolen vehicle convictions
- 9,187 dangerous drug convictions
- 16,070 drunk or drugged driving convictions
- 303 flight escape convictions”
What will the ramifications be from the 36,000 criminal illegal aliens released by the Obama Administration given the outrage over one, Willy Horton crime spree? It’s almost a certainty that one, or likely many, of the released immigrants will commit additional crimes. How will Americans react when, and if, the media reports on those crimes? Given the number of murders and sexual assaults reported above, wouldn’t this equate to a real “War on Women?” Perhaps it would be more accurate to label it a “War on Innocent Americans”!
Comprehensive immigration reform is a hot topic being pushed by Democrat President Barack Obama and the leadership of the Republican Party. Democrats are hoping to turn this issue into a major vote getting drive in 2014 and beyond. Republicans, for some reason, have leaders that believe that they must do the same thing and pass comprehensive immigration reform in order to survive. Big business, and the Chamber of Commerce for example, are putting pressure on Republicans to cave in and pass immigration reform. Businesses for some reason seem to think that cheap labor is the result of immigration reform. Perhaps they naively believe that once these illegal aliens are recognized by our country they will come out of the shadows and be content to make the small wages that they get paid today as illegal workers. They need to wake up!
Democrats always have the next round played out in every political battle. They are never content to accept the status quo or a victory as the final answer. Immigration reform is no different. A blind man could see that the next bludgeon to hit Republicans following comprehensive immigration reform would significantly hurt any business that uses illegal alien labor. Democrats would claim, in a monolithic voice, that Republicans and conservatives should no longer exploit these new “Americans” and their wages should be equalto any other American. So farms that use migrant labor now to pick their crops, and rely upon cheap labor, would instantly find themselves forced to pay minimum wage or higher. And what does that mean America?
The jobs that “Americans won’t do”, they would do if wages were high enough. Now we’re going to recognize between 12 and 20+ million people, put them on a path to citizenship, and immediately be forced to pay them minimum wage. They will compete for essential entry-level jobs like McDonald’s, Taco Bell and Burger King with American teenagers. The end result will harm Americans at the expense of those who might have allegiances to other countries, but who Democrats anoint as Americans.
Open your eyes and look for their next move following amnesty. Look for the second and third order effects of Democrat sponsored policies. There is always another progressive bludgeon waiting for Republicans!
