How Often are Asylees and Refugees Accommodated…

Map and Scope_1Senator Kennedy, speaking of the effects of the act, said, “…our cities will not be flooded with a million immigrants annually…. Secondly, the ethnic mix of this country will not be upset….”. The act’s supporters not only claimed the law would not change America’s ethnic makeup, but that such a change was not desirable.

On October 3, 1965, President Lyndon B. Johnson signed the legislation into law saying, “This [old] system violates the basic principle of American democracy, the principle that values and rewards each man on the basis of his merit as a man. It has been un-American in the highest sense, because it has been untrue to the faith that brought thousands to these shores even before we were a country.”

However, in all truth and reality immigration changed America’s demographics, opening the doors to immigrants from Asia, Africa, and the Middle East. The Latin American population has also dramatically increased since 1965, though this was more due to the various unexpected results of this act rather than due to this act itself (it is worth noting that this act introduced immigration quotas to Latin America, whereas there were previously no immigration quotas) from the Western Hemisphere.

By the 1990s, America’s population growth was more than one-third driven by legal immigrationKS14598 and substantially augmented by illegal immigration, primarily from Latin America and other parts of the developing world. Before passage of the Hart-Celler Act, immigration accounted for only ten percent of population increase in the U.S. Ethnic and racial minorities, as defined by the US Census Bureau, rose from 25 percent of the US population during the year 1990 to 30 percent in the year 2000 and to 36.6 percent as measured by the results from the 2010 census.

So here is our question: — 10 percent total population increase by immigration is sufficient. What the previous statement said was this: — that after the passage of the Hart-Celler Act immigration rose from 25 percent of the US population during the years 1965 to 1990; furthermore immigration again increased 10 percent from 1990 to 2000 with additional 6.6 percent as measured by the US Census of 2010.

If you have noticed the majority of immigration to the United States has been primarily by surges; moreover, surges that have accompanied the United States war machine. In truth the greatest times of legal immigration, which for some reason inspires those given to illegal immigration, happen normally within five to eight years after a war or military conflict that the USA has engaged upon.(See below.)

The Migration and Refugee Assistance Act was passed in 1962 to deal with unexpected and urgent needs of refugees, displaced persons, conflict victims, and other persons at risk around the globe.
The Act was brought into force during the Clinton administration in 2001 to deal with the crises in the Balkans and Nepal.
The Act was cited by President Barack Obama in 2009 to authorize money up to $20.3 million related to needs of Palestinian refugees and conflict victims in Gaza.

So if we look critically at the mindset of every administration – it ostensibly looks to be like a good faith gesture to delve into this Migration and Refugee Assistance Act – the sooner the better. Although President Eisenhower did not approve of Latin (or Mexican) immigration, he nonetheless allowed millions of those from war torn Europe to be allowed to enter the USA. President Kennedy did not like the quota system because he felt it was unfair, and President Johnson followed in solidified footprints to see to it that not only the quota system was demolished but the Voting Rights Act (written by JFK) was passed as well.

Presidents Nixon and Ford granted more visas and jobs and refugee status to more Vietnamese, Chinese, and Japanese than any two other presidents combined. And then there was President Jimmy Carter and we are not aware of his actions.

President Reagan took and ended office by declaring amnesty that was not policed. Most of our readers have been alive since Presidents Bush the Elder, Clinton, and Bush the Younger, and this madman in the White House now who is threatening not only a political party but the people of this country the amnesty of perhaps 11 million more illegal immigrants.

Who Counts as a Refugee and Who Does Not

Who Counts as a Refugee and Who Does Not

us-customs-and-bp-250Here is an example of incompetence that may find a rival class in pre-nursery school. One could easily write pages on the difference between the existing laws for Refugees and those who seek Asylum. All we are going to say is that  we have covered these topics when it was whistle blown that agents from Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) were caught paying for the hotel rooms for those they couldn’t find space for. And then we all lived through the drama of when we found out through active duty border agents that they were distributing hand cards with this verse:

Refugee status applies to refugees who have no reasonable opportunity to return home in the foreseeable future, or whose lives depend on third-country re-settlement, should be moved into a country like the U.S., experts say. These types of visas are normally found on people who are downtrodden and face imminent death or some sanction from their host nation. More often than not refugees are on the extreme opposite side of the ruling authority and as such have lost just about everything they own.

The United States Refugee Act of 1980 (Public Law 96-212) was an amendment to the earlier Immigration and Nationality Act and the Migration and Refugee Assistance Act, and was created to provide a permanent and systematic procedure for the admission to the United States of refugees of special humanitarian concern to the U.S., and to provide comprehensive and uniform provisions for the effective resettlement and absorption of those refugees who are admitted.

Giovani is 17, from El Salvador, and came to the United States alone in December, making him one of tens of thousands of Central American minors who have crossed the Rio Grande unaccompanied this year. He found himself alone in the Texas scrub, not knowing which way to go, and so he turned himself in to Border Patrol agents. After a brief detention in Texas, he took his first plane ride to Chicago. When the plane landed, he broke from the pack of children on the runway to touch the fresh snow on the ground, the first he had ever seen. (Ah…so almost unbearably sweet.)

Reading with me so far? Great, because here comes the awful, egregious side of some die hard liberal telling the story. But Giovani’s journey had its origins in 1998, when his mother, Maria, left El Salvador to escape her boyfriend, a violent man who regularly hit her and stopped her from working. Maria is a tired-looking woman in her early 40s. A server at a restaurant, she has spent endless hours on her feet in low-paying jobs. (Notice if possible, the terms of domestic violence that led Maria to leave the Giovani and his brother.)

After realizing that she could not make ends meet in El Salvador, Maria took Giovani, then 18 months, and his brother to their grandmother’s, mortgaged her home, and used the money to get to the United States, which she says was a difficult choice, especially as it meant leaving her children. She describes the fifteen-hour walk through the desert as difficult but bearable, especially compared to where she ended up: Kansas City in the middle of winter. There was snow everywhere, and the desert had only been one link from a hard life to another.

The spoils thus far: Giovani is on his second trip to the United States right now. Maria, hislatin America map mother, has seemed to like the USA where she spends more time telling of her time in the desert and the unbearable coldness of winter in Kansas City.

Not wanting to be considered unkind or merciless in any way – the fact of the matter is that Maria left her children in El Salvador with nothing mind you, absconded the family’s money, and set out for a new life in the USA. Like it or not, the truth is that she illegally entered this nation.

In the 1980s and early 1990s, as right-wing governments battled leftist rebels in Guatemala and El Salvador, and a leftist government battled right-wing rebels in Nicaragua, hundreds of thousands were displaced. As many as 1 million Central Americans fled to the United States.

violenceDuring the 1980s, asylum lawyers faced the challenge of convincing immigration judges that violence was actually taking place in Central America. The Reagan administration, fighting the last decade of the Cold War, was doing its best to keep the brutality of US-allied governments out of the news. The State Department, which weighed in on most asylum cases, would deny widely documented massacres.

In 1996, Congress passed the most significant immigration reform since 1965, and also the most punitive. The Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act cut off a host of public benefits, required that many immigrants be incarcerated during immigration proceedings, beefed up border enforcement, expanded the list of deportable crimes and closed the courts to many important legal challenges.  (For further reading, click here.)

Storytelling…So we can at least have some fun

Storytelling…So we can at least have some fun

cArtel killingsAnd just north in that area is beyond question the most heinous turmoil of option-land one could possibly imagine. An ultimatum: forget your religion and come over to ours or you will be shot in the head, decapitated, disemboweled, or run under the aim and deadly wishes for you and yours. These people want us to run up a mountain so we can die of starvation.

This is where I left off last time. Before going much further into “The Boys and the Bucket List” I absolutely need to share this following information with you. Do you remember when you were a kid listening to your teachers in mayans - Copy whatever school. On and on they would go about these ancient civilizations to the point where you begin to wonder…Hahem, where did all those Mayans go? Or even the ancient Egyptians – they built these amazing pyramids with secret tunnels and various stately rooms that only those in the KNOW actually knew about.

Even as a grade schooler, I would often ask one of my female friends, — “Okay then now about Persia, Athens, and let us throw in the Christian Era and the beginning times of Islam.”   It was beginning to sound surreal for us! Like we would hear stories of Alexander the Great and all of his conquests, and we would never leave out Siddhartha Gautama, who left his immediate surroundings – just as the other’s had done – and upon their return had earth shattering news…until they were gone as well.

bill and ted's excellent adventure

bill and ted’s excellent adventure

How many now are thinking about “Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure”? For those who have not seen the film a quick expose. Two high school buds’ are failing their History class and must get an “A” grade on their individual final projects. Travel is accommodated by a telephone booth.

Unfortunately, they are still in high school and on the verge of failing out of their school as well, and if they do not pass their upcoming history report, they will be separated as a result of Ted’s father sending him to military school. But, what Bill and Ted do not know is that they must stay together to save the future. So, a man from the future named Rufus came to help them pass their report. So, both Bill and Ted decided to gather up historical figures which they need for their report. They are hoping that this will help them pass their report so they can stay together.

So on they go to find the most important people they found in their textbook – Socrates, Billy the Kid, Joan of Arc, Abraham Lincoln, Ludwig van Beethoven, Genghis Kahn, Napoleon, and Sigmund Freud.

We much like Bill and Ted feel the need to actually go to the places where these icons of legend came from. Seriously, we feel that the ambiance of actually turning into Lagos, Nigeria will assist us in our pursuit of understanding the slave trade.

So let us think about this map shall we? Just jaunting between some idyllic islands hey to

Hannibal with his elephants

Hannibal with his elephants

be ruddered  5 ° or 10° in any direction one may very well find themselves pulling into Casablanca, Morocco which would be to die for, and could happen without proper papers and documents. Unless of course we would like to visit the precise port of call where Hannibal actually ferried his elephants over to Spain and onward to Italy.

As we are meandering through the Mediterranean Sea some wind wells up and we end up in Alexandria, Egypt.  Just when you thought you were getting a break – things can get worse – still. This next bit was authored by Greta van Susteran from her show “On the Record” and having the passion she does about people please  read on.

“IT WILL TELL YOU A GREAT DEAL ABOUT YOUR GOVERNMENT IF THEY ALL GO ON VACATION AND NO DECISION ABOUT THE HUMANITARIAN CRISIS AT OUR BORDER – how can you fail to do your job, That then leads to a humanitarian crisis, that you then admit to yourself is a humanitarian crisis, then fail to work out a solution (once again, your job) and then just go off on vacation for five weeks? How do you turn your back on the American people like that? Or on the people who are suffering as a result of a humanitarian crisis? I don’t get it… but I do know one thing, it is pretty obvious to me why politicians won’t be holding TOWN HALL meetings while on recess. They are all up to their eyeballs in this – President, House and Senate. PLEASE SHARE THIS POSTING – I want to know what others think.”

Cardinal point direction: Ready when you are Captain…

Cardinal point direction: Ready when you are Captain…

world-map (473x312)In my last post I ended by alluding to the notion of just looking out or going out in each one of the Cardinal points and in so doing could or would create a story of magnificent proportions. Simply thinking of going on a worldwide journey – lets call it a Bucket List journey. Let us get out and do all of those things outlandish as they may seem now. For some reason doing exactly this just does not seem to be as thrilling or exhilarating as it once used too.

Every good mate on any ship can tell one what the Cardinal points are. Nothing real stirring about these points, they are just the direction on the compass as in north, south, east, and west from any given person’s place from where they are located at right now.

Which is precisely what my project has been with “me big mates” has been over the last year or so. Since having ostensibly the most traveling experience between all four of us we all put our most electrifying travel related fantasies and after meeting up with the boys we decided what stimulating and most exciting travel adventures we could and then for those of us who sweated year after year on the football fields, some went to college together, and others were in the military together; subsequently, being just the four coolest and longest standing friends for a lifetime – we outlined our entire trip.

We all thought that being from the West coast we should leave from the East. Admittedly, we could have simply started out and say “good east young man…” until approximately 24,000 miles later we would be right back in the same spot. But what kind of fun would that be?

It sure does not take engineering science to figure that a person could literally traverse the world that way. However their largest problem is that they would not be doing hardly any of their bucket list items. Maybe we should just look at these list items we agreed on before we make any more arrangements.

1280px-Alfabia2Starting with me is fair enough and most of my bucket list items are characterized by the island climate deluxe with lighthouses. I really look forward to the day when I can spend a reasonable amount of time on the Maldives Islands arriving there only after leaving my much needed stay in the in the Balearic Islands, Majorca (Spain’s largest island) and Minorca bring me exceptional presence. These and some say that the Canary Islands especially Tenerife Island is where Spain’s highest point is located so we may as well have some skiing gear with us don’t you think?

And as for my list and one of my dearest bud’s we have agreed to stay with some French Foreign Legion friends he has on Corsica as well. Think of it we are out headed for the Maldives off the coast of India, and we’ve yet to mention the marvelous Italian Isles of Sardinia and we both have the bravura for a good part of history on Sicily.

Have we even mentioned the Mediterranean Islands? Nope, not yet. However this I understand is when the water turns almost clear with a blue hue. Soon we all will be up on Mykonos and some quality time on Patmos Island before hitting our culture’s cradle, Athens.

Now this is with a direct heading of East. One simply cannot make it to our first mark –Maldives Islands – without first considering what other kind of operations we must travel either very close to or actually having to pull into port at some of the worst humanitarian places this side of Hell.

Just doing a few knots one must at least travel past Algeria which of course borders Tunisia which borders Libya, Egypt, and the Red Sea. At the same time we are to be cruising sub-Saharan Africa where thousands of people lay dead from the largest Ebola breakout in history.

syrian-officials-downAnd just north in that area is beyond question the most heinous turmoil of option-ville one could possibly imagine. An ultimatum, forget your religion and come over to ours or you will be shot in the head, decapitated, disemboweled, or run under the aim and deadly wishes for you and yours. These people want us to run up a mountain so we can die of starvation.

David and Goliath or Escondido versus the ACLU

Escondido versus the ACLU

storyThe tenor and feel of the story has some interesting precepts. This is the David v. Goliath story we find in Biblical literature as well as the Bible’s own particular narrative.

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), yep that army of legal experts has decided to take issue with the City of Escondido, California because the city has made decisions that the mighty ALCU does not deem fair and therefore has put the entire matter into the hands of the court.

The beauty of this narrative is that the rather upper class city of Escondido is run by a Mayor who himself immigrated to this nation, however he was never illegal, undocumented, or anything but a person who did things in the appropriate ways.

The little mayor, Sam Abed is a legal immigrant. Last week he and his city council unanimously voted 7-0 against the project of Southwest Key. It is overwhelmingly obvious that somehow or another his political views do not align themselves with those of the current Obama administration.

Southwest Key apparently a construction contractor has been given a contract to take anescondido unused former nursing home and renovate that into a detention center for primarily teenaged illegal immigrants as they wait for their court appearance deciding whether or not the illegal immigrant is to be deported.

Escondido, California mayor Sam Abed — himself a Lebanese immigrant — railed against a lawsuit contending that his city violated the rights of illegal immigrants by refusing to build them housing, declaring the ACLU is “targeting our city” and “we are going to stand for our rights.”

Last month, city planners in the 150,000-person city north of San Diego rejected a plan to build housing for illegal immigrants, which are overcrowding federal detention centers along the border.

Last week, the ACLU appealed that decision to the entire city council, setting off a local firestorm and making one mayor very, very angry.

th“We embrace immigration,” Abed told Fox News’ Neil Cavuto. “I am a proud immigrant coming to this country because of the liberty and the freedom. But the ACLU is [over]stepping their boundaries to interfere with local government.”

“We have two issues here,” he continued,” the issue of the detention facility which the planning commission has denied based on land-use issues. Now the ACLU is dragging this issue to immigration.”

The ACLU is targeting our city,” he accused. “And we are going to stand for our rights. We are going to defend our liberty, our sovereignty. It is a local issue, and the ACLU needs to leave the city alone and let us do our things to protect our city.”

“We have a mobile obligation to the existing residents,” Abed asserted. “We have about 70,000 Hispanic residents in our city. We need to help them realize the American Dream. We need to help them be prosperous, have a better life for their families.”

“But to add more illegal immigrants to our city is a problem for the entire community,” the Escondido mayor said. “You would expect the ACLU would defend the citizens of this country, but they are not.”

“So we’re going to defend ourselves, we’re not going to be intimidated by the ACLU,” Abed alcucontinued. “Because we need to fulfill our obligations to our residents, to our seniors, to our Hispanic community in Escondido.”

“The ACLU has no business interfering with the land-use decision,” he concluded. “It is our government; it’s the local government, which needs to make that determination.”

An Alien sighted…and the Armies moved…

Storytelling…

boozeStorytelling seems to be the notion of the person at the party who could tell the best ones. Or anymore when people think of storytelling it has been coming something like – the bedtime story – then there are always the – camp fire – stories normally featuring a demented and crazed person. Depending on who is telling it, the story normally involves younger people exploring their sexuality in one way or another and count on it–there will be blood, gore, veins in the teeth type drama.

If one were to really think about it outside of the air we breathe, and the blood in our bodies, there is one thing that has connected us to modern humans today with the shamans, emperors, kings, griots, priests, or the neighborhood drunk has been a heritage, or a lineage, of stories. Stories move the world at the same time they explain our place in it.

One should never ever think of treating a story as a shallow little thing. It should be remembered that a “good” story is as powerful as the bullet fired from an assassin’s gun.

We all love to be entertained. Popcorn and circuses! Clowns as well as tricks too! MikiFinnDecapitations along with the ice cream, thank you very much. Let the fuse burn, faster, so we can see the person exit the canon. Albeit by talking, or by writing, a good story entertains – but a great story knows the ability to do much more with its arsenal.

Seriously, what is it in a story that makes us feel something? Something that puts our emotions to the test, and at the same time make us give a hoot about the characters and places and concepts that do not exist and may well never exist. The way a story stabs us with sadness or hangs us out with happiness, runs us through the gauntlet of rage, jealousy, and denial whilst preserving lust and fear together is parallel to none.

A storyteller makes us feel something – even if it is sorrow for the one trying to deliver it. Jugglers entertain us, but it is the story that makes us give a dump when we have no reason to do so. Let all who read be aware that the story teller is the master of manipulation.

A good story is a good story regardless of genre, category, or form. Actually most of the big earning box office films are really a combination of the forms. All one need to do is think about Star Wars to get my meaning.

dexter_50308Oh thank goodness! How many of us enjoy the sci-fi flick, or a good sexy fantasy novel. Let’s think about a superhero comic, or explain to me how a show about duck hunting forges the ever popular video game with the same name. Yet it is always something more like human trafficking or a great slasher with new ways of slicing someone up that earns the respect of the listener or viewer.

As I set out to write this story, I had three primary earth- electrifying situations that I wanted to identify and share some of the happiest and saddest story telling moments with each treatment. Until I started counting them out…

That is when my list of chaotic extremes got so long that I realized I’d share them only after your help at clarifying which ones would be the best to hear.

Try and creatively think about the chaotic times we are actually living through and try and come to the happiest or disgusted ending one can think of. HINT: View the earth in its given Cardinal point – north, south, east, and west and think openly about tragedy, that is a great start.

“Holes and how to plug them”

“Holes and how to plug them”

obama-good-luck-2012 - Copy - CopyReform is an act of improving by alteration, correction of an error, or removal of defects; put into a better form or condition. Reform can also be used as a campaign aimed to correct abuses or malpractices. A series of actions advancing a principle or tending toward a particular end; “he supported various campaigns”; “the team was ready for a drive toward the pennant”; “the movement to end slavery”; “contributed to the war effort” a change for the better as a result of correcting abuses; “justice was for sale before the reform of the law courts.”

Of immediate concern is in the area of border security. Does the US currently have the human-power in place to provide for security against an unforeseen infiltrator? We suggest that it does not. Current data suggests that at the further most point approximately 60% of illegal’s are being apprehended before or at crossing the border. (Critical reading)

However from a report issued by agents who have worked in the exact same divisions of the border report “that they’d be lucky if it were really at 10% of those crossing our borders. (Serious reading)

Being realistic regarding this current situation one need only ask a few simple questions. One, if the USA were to engage in a war with a lunatic Persian leader would they do so on the understanding that they were going to lose 90% of the fighting military? We think not. Two, if prior to boarding an international flight the pilot told you that you had a 10% chance of making it through the flight, would you still board the aircraft?

These questions may seems futile to some, however all things being equal if our Border Patrol agents state that they are apprehending less than 10 percent of illegal aliens there definitely needs to be corrected of its abuses and malpractices.

The exact hold true with what reports we are receiving from agents in the field and foolmetwice-130x190bureaucrats in Washington D.C. Currently there exists a differential of 50 percent of apprehension rate which as the report mentions is unacceptable. We suggest finding the appropriate means of a change for the better as a result of correcting abuses and dysfunction between departments.

We have found the questioning of DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano before the House Judiciary Committee asked DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano about the administration’s DREAM Act executive amnesty. Rep. Elton Gallegly (R-Calif.), who chairs the Immigration Subcommittee, asked Sec. Napolitano how many illegal aliens would receive work permits while millions of Americans were out of work. He had to ask the questions four times before getting an answer. Judiciary Chairman Lamar Smith asked Sec. Napolitano if students who qualify would have to provide a certified school transcript. She said, they’re “still working on the details.”

Very simply our question is and remains “Where is the reform in this matter?” A simple question that ostensibly would receive a simple answer goes on for nearly 4 minutes and the primary question never is answered. What does policy dictate? This is astonishing when one sees that there isn’t yet a policy which would dictate the answer.

And therefore we have begun what the first element should be when endeavoring to reform the law. First and foremost there does not exist laws in the books for one to mess up entirely to warrant reformation.

obama-crazed - Copy - CopyHowever rather than 600 people trying to come up with an agenda that will really begin and confirm additional migraine headaches at trying to fix something that has entered into existence by due negligence, adverse reaction to various stimulus, or let’s just say an Act, policy, or something ordered up by some lunatic with a pen and a phone.

Now just suppose that Barack Obama amnesties 11 million illegals that are already here. Just as it happened in 1986-1988 who could possibly hold back an additional 2 or 3 million more people because of this or that excuse?

Finally please look at the matter of good faith and good will legislation that has already permeated the books. The DREAM Act, DACA initiative, guest worker programs, in addition to visa lotteries, Birthright Citizenship, and any number of further entitlement programs.

Rubio v. Rubio (both ways!) immigration will never work

First, the whole point of comprehensive immigration reform, which Rubio championed as Mexicorecently as last year, is to create a compromise framework that both parties could embrace: Republicans get increased border security; Democrats get a pathway to citizenship for undocumented immigrants who are already in the United States. Rubio’s new line is that the GOP should get 100% of what it wants now, and later, Republicans will think about Democratic priorities.

Of the first part, this aptitude of thinking is all very wrong. Make no mistake about it, essentially what is happening is that both political parties are trying first to win over the amount of illegal immigrants that are currently in the mix to vote. Therefore, forget about the Republicans and border security; furthermore, Democrats should not be scurrying around their offices and involving their aides and most left wing special interest groups to even consider a pathway to citizenship. Even considering a pathway for citizenship among those illegal’s that are already living here is unconscionable. 

The very first thing that should happen between these two or more political parties is have a meet and greet, brunch, breakdown of levels and introduce themselves to each other or introduce some unknown parties in the congressional membership. Levels refers to the time accumulated as a Representative or Senator.

Secondly, this may not be popular, yet is nonetheless the most important aspect of imagescomprehensive immigration reform, is once these individuals have had a welcome and have vowed to play nice — for the House, Speaker John Boehner – should address the issue that the United States of America has never, ever been in the position of making immigration laws. If of course we want to consider Acts and rules, even a “gentleman’s agreement” as law making, then this writing will stand correction.

Now it is believed that all sorts of rhetorical rubbish will fly around the meeting room as if the House Speaker was on dope. Now Ms. Pelosi, settle down and allow someone to show how the various agencies that have thus far run the INS, it is appreciated.

Whatever the case,the massive increase in population due to globalization and the sharp Pelosiincrease in the numbers of refugees following World War I created an huge warp of a homeless class of non-citizens. In some rare cases, procedures of mass naturalization were passed.

As naturalization laws were created to deal with the people separated from their nation state because they lived abroad (expatriates), western democracies were not ready to naturalize the massive  influx of stateless people.

Attendees Told of a town hall event, immigration reform was not about enforcing America’s laws

Attendees told at a town hall event, immigration reform was not about enforcing American laws.

immigration_protest_capital_reuters“Immigration reform is not about enforcement,” Peters said in a short video clip obtained by Breitbart News. “It’s about finding a way to fix the problems in our immigration system.”

Remember in our last post the notion of “being informed” knowing both sides of a particular problem is one of the most attractive characteristics that a human could possess. Question: Doesn’t Gary Peters (D-MI) understand what he has said? Basically what Peters is saying is immigration reform has nothing to do with enforcing the Constitution and the law of the land.

Doesn’t Mr. Peters understand that without the U.S. Border Patrol, U.S.female roust Immigration and Customs Enforcement, and their backlog of cases is but one example of how enforcement is needed? Someone please, puleeze remind this wannabe Congressman kum Senator, that a nation does not gain 11 million illegals with proper enforcement in place.

The actual event was held April 6, 2013, and was hosted by local pro-amnesty organization — One Michigan—before the Senate passed the “Gang of Eight” immigration bill. The organization pushed for that bill and frequently advocates on its Facebook page on behalf of illegal aliens.

Ah…a new place to introduce The Contemplative Thinker.  Not that it would do much good given over to these advocacy groups and the like, but if one single person could be gotten too, it means the work would be worth it. (A cliche I learned in Education.)

The Wall Street Journal recently reported that national Democrats are worried about the seat, and the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC) has already reserved $6.3 million worth of advertising in Michigan this year in an effort to protect the seat—which is currently held by retiring Democratic Sen. Carl Levin (D-MI). Who was it that said “Politics is not about money, Mr. Obama?”

A new poll from the Associated Press and GfK Public Affairs and Corporate Communications shows that immigration is now President Barack Obama’s worst issue. A whopping 68 percent disapprove of the president’s handling of immigration, and just 31 percent—down from 38 percent a couple months—approve of how he’s handling it.

Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL), the ranking member of the Senate Budget Committee, has long argued Republicans should unite against amnesty to beat the Democrats with the message, which very much seems to be what the Republicans are still in the House trying to land this bill.
Interestingly enough, the not-so-conservative ex-Sen. Scott Brown (R-MA)—who’s now running in New Hampshire against incumbent Democrat Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH)—seems to be the first Republican to get the joke. Brown aired what’s been thus far a successful hit on Shaheen, attacking her for standing alongside President Obama in support of amnesty for illegal aliens over support for American citizens struggling in the lagging Obama economy.

After days ofbreaking news scrambling to secure every last vote, the Republican-led House narrowly approved an emergency funding bill for the border crisis on Friday – a critical victory for the new GOP leadership but one that will have little practical impact.

The 223-189 vote came after GOP leaders abruptly pulled its original measure from the House floor on Thursday when it became clear it lacked sufficient support from the party’s own rank and fi

Does the President Know What His Job Is..?

golfvsvets22Ladies and gentlemen…let’s be informed! Granted there are many people who read the newspapers and I say, Ah yes! Keep up the good work gang! And then if the opportunity exists, I may add “So what do you think? Think that we will make it another year?”

The entire measure of this exercise is multifold to put it mildly. Let us list what can be the modus operandi of such question asking. Clearly this is a way of laissez faire introduction, a conversation starter, then again one needs to be assured they either know the person who was asked, or be on some same footing.

You know Johnny Carson, the dean of all deans of late night television programs used to read seven newspapers before noon. And I am well aware that many people do that kind of reading today. But before you ask — what kind of reading was it — I mean a comedian perusing the papers for joke material is not exactly paying attention to what is right before him or her.

Which makes me even more intense on how does a person read a newspaper? I profess n504104ac64359_largethe school of thought that one read the material as objectively and interactively as possible. Where I am headed with this is to say most writing is just one person’s story. Some people like the old African “gringotts” made their storytelling legend because one, they had years to develop the story and two they can make it believable. Yet, while we are at it — “it” is still a story coming from a particular person to you. We don’t need the various quips of trust, knowledge, personality, facts, and just that. How boring! An editor would shout!

Ban-marylandreporter_logo_square-red-border-290x166Here is one such disastrous piece of lousy work. Barry Rascovar   who writes a weekly column for a paper referred to as The Maryland Reporter  has just received the best publicity it will ever receive — here is what the locals think: Blowback on Rascovar column was fierce; Bongino calls for boycott of Maryland Reporter - (Please read by clicking here.)

Have you ever decided to enter into a relationship (professional) with anyone of the writers

Humm

Humm

that you read often? Believe me, it is an easy thing to do. The more publicity (calls, letters, editors) the more scratch. Teaching reading skills and reading comprehension to college level students helped me to understand where our skill direction needs to be drilled.

What I am talking about is as you read there are naturally some questions that come to your mind. You should be asking those either of the author or his editor, trust me, you will get a response. Heck, write them down on the paper.

Now for the Lexus

Being informed is one of the most exasperating in a person’s life. I am not referring to a “know-it-all” just someone who knows both sides of especially current events. Poll ratings for activeness and being informed are way off the charts (mid to low 90 percent).

So did anyone hear the President’s speech today? One would think that he is auditioning for life after the White House — as a comedian! Here is a little and obscure sample for you.

[Working the crowd] he starts with. “Yeah those Republicans are going to sue me. Now it doesn’t matter, because the time it will take will be over two years…and I’ll be out of office by then. [He and audience laughing hysterically].

“Not a smidgen…”

But I just don’t know what they are trying to accomplish with this lawsuit. So, I’ll tell the Judge, I was just doing my job…Yep, getting sued for doing my job.”

Are you informed? Isn’t there just a little being left out of this speech? Is President Obama doing his job? If vacations and a lousy golf game was his job, well then he’d be doing it.

But there is so much more to it than that! You need both sides of this debate to be a good juror. As for the President, he should be curious about what it is that has irked so many people that members of his same party won’t talk or even associate with him, how long has it been since the President sent anything to Congress — one or both houses? You see this insecure and knowledgless man doesn’t even know what the President is supposed to do.

He is supposed to keep us safe. Do you believe his handling of immigration reform has kept you safe? There is undeniable proof that Obama knew about this two to three years ago. How about getting a Law passed, and then changing that exact law in excess of 40 times without even consulting Congress. The list goes on and on…

This person has been in Congress for far too long!

Weigh in! This guy has not done anything but his attitude is "Yes Sir, Mr. President..."
