Some of you have heard of a coming “shutdown” of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). If your one of the socialists at say Salon, you’ll claim that Speaker Boehner is ignoring political reality and shutting down the DHS. In reality during the last so-called government shutdown over 200,000 out of 231,000 employees continued to work and non-essential employees were out of luck for a short time. Based upon the most recent oversight report issued by the Senate the DHS could stand to spend money more efficiently anyway. Many leftists will say that a DHS shutdown will be disastrous for Republicans, yet reality may say something different. Everyone’s totally going to remember that time part of the DHS shutdown for a short time in 2016. Why should local governments be so beholden to the Federal Government anyway?
Do you guys remember just how poorly Republicans did in the last election? How would any of you reading this be affected? Are the borders suddenly going to be secure? Are any illegal immigrants going to be deported? Here are a few comments on the Yahoo! News article linked to in the previous sentence:
I suppose that myself and anyone else not interested in President Obama’s Amnesty is not patriotic and doesn’t care about border security. People wanted the President’s policies enacted so badly that Democrats lost nine seats in the Senate and thirteen in the House last election. I suppose that time will tell if the Republicans cave on this issue. If we’re lucky, courts will continue to side with the states on Amnesty. President Obama is continuing to enact his Amnesty in spite of the most recent court order though, I wonder how that will turn out? I really do wonder why progressives believe that the Senate minority party should dictate all legislation regarding spending?
One of the videos I’ve watched about immigration recently was put together by progressives and decries those who support any enforcement of border control. You know that the guys at Brave New Films must be worth watching if they’ve succumbed to Koch Derangement Syndrome. Below is the video and my own critique of it for anyone who’s interested.
This film ignores many facts. If the Federal Government actually enforced border security perhaps there would be fewer people to detain. A large portion of illegal immigrants never show up to court or ignore court orders. http://cis.org/Immigration-Courts http://www.judicialwatch.org/…/doj-lies-about…/ http://www.prnewswire.com/…/illegal-immigrants-present… http://www.powerlineblog.com/…/mystery-of-the-missing… Most progressives desire amnesty even though it was already tried once in 1987. It was a complete and total failure since border security wasn’t taken seriously. At least when President Reagan signed his Executive Action into law he was enforcing the will of Congress which passed the Immigration and Control Act of 1986. http://thefederalist.com/…/no-reagan-did-not-offer-an…/ The current administration seems to be doing many things to encourage illegal immigration, stopping such activities might lower the number of people that try to get smuggled in the country. President Obama is actively ignoring current Immigration law contrary to his duty to “take Care that the Laws will be faithfully executed,”. http://www.powerlineblog.com/…/the-obama-administration… http://www.powerlineblog.com/…/obama-demonstrates-why…
It’s funny how the video states that Russell Pearce Pearce has “obscure ties to Neo-Nazi” groups. What does that mean? What source are they citing? Robert Bryd was a U.S. Democratic Senator of West Virginia until 2010. He was among other things, the Senate Majority leader for a time. He was also a KKK member and actively recruited people to join up with him. So much for the Democratic Party and progressives defending minorities. http://dailycaller.com/2010/06/28/sen-robert-byrd-not-only-was-a-kkk-member-but-led-his-local-klan-chapter/ This video points towards how money has been spent on some conservative candidates, yet acts as if progressives have donated no money. Some simple research will show that leftists donate large amounts of money to their own causes. Plenty of rich liberals like George Soros and Tom Steyer donate money to their causes, ignoring this influence while decrying money spent by others is simply disingenuous. https://www.opensecrets.org/orgs/list.php http://www.politico.com/…/blue-billionaires-on-top…
The video cites the story of a man who died in prison, are prison administrators or guards in government-run prisons not ever incompetent? Do people not die in such prisons for preventable reasons?http://www.jailsergeant.com/Prison_Inmate_Deaths.html http://www.bjs.gov/index.cfm?ty=tp&tid=194 I wonder if these people would protest against Mexican prison conditions or their treatment of illegal immigrants? http://www.washingtontimes.com/…/mexicos-illegals…/… http://www.examiner.com/…/mexican-military-police… Overall, this video is very simplistic and selective with its evidence. Hey, I’m all for border enforcement and sending some people back home so that fewer prisons are necessary for illegal immigrants.
Since progressives are good at pulling heartstrings I suppose that I can too. Do black lives matter to progressives, or is it just the votes? Here’s the case of Jamiel Shaw’s murder by a “dreamer” for you.
