July 4th, 1776 – The Declaration of Independence (Which has turned into the Sheep of Dependency)

Posted by Yorkshire on 2012/07/03

Declaration of Independence

(Here is the complete text of the Declaration of Independence. Written 236 years ago and is still relevent today. This document represents a primary resource in understanding the history of America. The original spelling and capitalization have been retained.)

(Adopted by Congress on July 4, 1776)

The Unanimous Declaration
of the Thirteen United States of America

When, in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the laws of nature and of nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. That to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. That whenever any form of government becomes destructive to these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shown that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security. –Such has been the patient sufferance of these colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former systems of government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute tyranny over these states. To prove this, let facts be submitted to a candid world.

He has refused his assent to laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.

He has forbidden his governors to pass laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.

He has refused to pass other laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of representation in the legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only.

He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their public records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.

He has dissolved representative houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.

He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected; whereby the legislative powers, incapable of annihilation, have returned to the people at large for their exercise; the state remaining in the meantime exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within.

He has endeavored to prevent the population of these states; for that purpose obstructing the laws for naturalization of foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migration hither, and raising the conditions of new appropriations of lands.

He has obstructed the administration of justice, by refusing his assent to laws for establishing judiciary powers.

He has made judges dependent on his will alone, for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.

He has erected a multitude of new offices, and sent hither swarms of officers to harass our people, and eat out their substance.

He has kept among us, in times of peace, standing armies without the consent of our legislature.

He has affected to render the military independent of and superior to civil power.

He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his assent to their acts of pretended legislation:

For quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:

For protecting them, by mock trial, from punishment for any murders which they should commit on the inhabitants of these states:

For cutting off our trade with all parts of the world:

For imposing taxes on us without our consent:

For depriving us in many cases, of the benefits of trial by jury:

For transporting us beyond seas to be tried for pretended offenses:

For abolishing the free system of English laws in a neighboring province, establishing therein an arbitrary government, and enlarging its boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule in these colonies:

For taking away our charters, abolishing our most valuable laws, and altering fundamentally the forms of our governments:

For suspending our own legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.

He has abdicated government here, by declaring us out of his protection and waging war against us.

He has plundered our seas, ravaged our coasts, burned our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.

He is at this time transporting large armies of foreign mercenaries to complete the works of death, desolation and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of cruelty and perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the head of a civilized nation.

He has constrained our fellow citizens taken captive on the high seas to bear arms against their country, to become the executioners of their friends and brethren, or to fall themselves by their hands.

He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavored to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian savages, whose known rule of warfare, is undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.

In every stage of these oppressions we have petitioned for redress in the most humble terms: our repeated petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A prince, whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.

Nor have we been wanting in attention to our British brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which, would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, enemies in war, in peace friends.

We, therefore, the representatives of the United States of America, in General Congress, assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the name, and by the authority of the good people of these colonies, solemnly publish and declare, that these united colonies are, and of right ought to be free and independent states; that they are absolved from all allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the state of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as free and independent states, they have full power to levy war, conclude peace, contract alliances, establish commerce, and to do all other acts and things which independent states may of right do. And for the support of this declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.

Arizona Recall Election

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2011/11/08

Republican Arizona State Senator Russell Pearce faces a recall election. Pearce is best known for being the architect of Arizona’s immigration law.

In Arizona, Republican state Sen. Russell Pearce, architect of the immigration law that thrust the issue into the national political debate, faces a recall that could throw him out of office. The Republican attempting to defeat him has made immigration a constant theme, but Pearce has a 3-to-1 fundraising advantage.

As of 9:05pm local time, the SEIU-backed Jerry Lewis has apparently defeated Russell Pearce. With all 16 precincts reporting, Jerry Lewis gained 10,816 votes for 53 percent of the vote to Russel Pearce’s 9,188 votes for 45 percent of the vote.

Dear Rick Perry, Please Stop Digging

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2011/10/01

Rick Perry, who accused 81 percent of the public of being heartless, is still digging. Allahpundit says:

Matt Lewis says he’s improving on this issue. I guess, but that’s mainly because after you’ve tried to win over voters by calling them heartless, there’s really nowhere to go but up.

I’m not so sure. I think Rick Perry is, at best, going sideways and not up. Allahpundit goes on to quote MSNBC.

“We have, for decades, had a federal government that has absolutely failed in its constitutional duty to defend our border,” Perry said.

“I’m a governor. I don’t have the pleasure of standing on the stage and criticizing. I have to deal with these issues,” he later added.

Perry continued, “In 2001, we had this choice: Are we going to kick these children over to the curb and say you cannot have access to college? Because the fact of the matter is there’s no way they could pay the out-of-state tuition. And are we going to have them on the government dole over here because they’re not educated? Or are we going to have them in our institutions of higher learning, paying in state tuition, pursuing citizenship?”

How about we quit enabling illegal aliens in their illegal activities? Ever think of that, Governor Perry? Allahpundit notes Rick Perry opposes E-Verify, his wife has framed the question of either tuition subsidies or welfare payments — to illegals — a Left-wing Big Government false dichotomy fallacy, not only do illegals get in-state tuition subsidies (paid for by the tax-payers) but also tax-payer funded financial aid.

No, Rick Perry is not a small government Conservative. On this issue, he’s not a Conservative at all. As I said before, Rick Perry is a Bell Curve Tenther and not a True Tenther in that he supports State-level Big Government at the expense of the citizens. And I have no doubt that, if he were to become President, he will drop all pretenses at being a Tenther altogether for his Big Government approach.

And that Left-wing Big Government false dichotomy fallacy? How about we don’t subsidize the education of illegal aliens? How about we don’t give tax-payer funded Welfare to illegal aliens? How about we don’t allow businesses to hire illegal aliens? Do you know what that would do? It would save the tax-payers lots of money and it would stop enabling the illegal aliens and their illegal behavior. That would be the Small Government Conservative approach, and that would encourage the illegal aliens to return home.

UPDATE
RS McCain mocks Rick Perry and his hole-digging self-inflicted and possibly politically-fatal wound.

Go back just 10 days — before the Orlando debate, before the Florida straw poll — and remember how Perry was the unstoppable juggernaut, the bandwagon everyone was going to ride to glory.

And now it’s over. Completely and irretrievably over. How over is it? Mitt Romney is mocking Perry as a RINO sellout[.]

When even Flip Flopney tags you for being clearly to the Left of the Conservative base, you know you done a bad thing. Seriously Rick, stop digging. Put that shovel down and don’t pick it back up again.

More Polling Numbers Democrats Won’t Like

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2011/09/30

I previously reported on the voting public’s positions on various issues and their stance opposing Democrat positions. A plurality (44 percent) are fiscal Conservatives while a small minority (11 percent) are fiscal Liberals. 2/3 want the border controlled before dealing with any other possible illegal immigrant solutions. The numbers regarding educating illegal immigrants gets more glaring, with 4 out of 5 saying they don’t want illegal immigrants to get in-state tuition rates. Over 7 in 10 Hispanic voters in “battleground” states approve of Voter ID. The majority of voters favor repealing ObamaCare, 20 points above those who don’t want it repealed. All of these issues have the Democrat party on the wrong side of the voting public.

But there’s more, as the late-night infomercials say. The next batch of polling numbers are again opposing Democrat party positions.

Most voters support the Death Penalty.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey of American Adults shows that 60% favor the death penalty, while 28% oppose it. Another 12% are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

This is little changed from surveys dating back to November 2009, with support for capital punishment running from 61% to 63%.

Over 2/3 of men and a majority of women support the Death Penalty. Over 3/4 of Republicans and 6 in 10 independents support the Death Penalty. And the Democrat base is evenly divided on the issue. While a bare majority of blacks oppose the Death Penalty, a clear majority of Whites and non-black minorities support the Death Penalty. So as an issue, the Democrat party leadership is on the wrong side.

Most voters favor a Balanced Budget Amendment, something the Democrat party and many Ruling Class Republicans oppose.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey of Likely Voters shows that 56% are in favor of a balanced budget amendment while 22% are opposed and another 22% are undecided.

Most Republicans (68%) and voters not affiliated with either party (54%) support a balanced budget amendment. So do a plurality of Democrats (46%).

The vast majority of voters support term limits for Congress, something the Ruling Class of both parties opposes.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 71% of Likely U.S. Voters favor establishing term limits for all members of Congress. Just 14% oppose setting such limits, and 15% are undecided about them.

The majority of voters are “just not that into” giving government subsidies for alternative energy.

Fifty-seven percent (57%) of Likely U.S. Voters think free market competition is more likely than government subsidies and regulation to help the United States develop alternative sources of energy. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that just 27% believe government subsidies and regulations are the better way to go. Sixteen percent (16%) are not sure.

But then 71% of voters say private sector companies and investors are better than government officials when it comes to determining the long-term benefits and potential of new technologies. Sixty-four percent (64%) think it’s likely that if a private company which cannot find investors gets funding from the government, that money will be wasted.

If private investors aren’t willing to put money into a company, only 17% of voters think the federal government should provide loan guarantees or loans to help keep such a company in business. Fifty-nine percent (59%) say the government should not provide money for an alternative energy company after private investors refuse to invest in it. Twenty-three percent (23%) are not sure.

More voters say being “pro-gun” is good and “union supported” is bad than say the reverse. 6 in 10 Americans believe if the Government raises taxes to reduce the deficit, it will only cause more Government spending (which means the public isn’t buying the Democrat party’s “the Republicans don’t want to raise taxes so they’re not serious about the debt” false dichotomy fallacy), while the majority believe if the Government agrees to cut spending, no spending will actually be cut (which means the public knows the Government’s history).

On practically every issue, the Democrat party stands in opposition to the will of the public. On practically every issue, the Democrat party stands in opposition to the will of independent voters. Is it any wonder a Democrat poll showed Democrats in a worse position in 60 Republican-held “battleground” districts now than in 2010, when Democrats were swept out of office? Is it any wonder Democrats are losing the independent vote?

Propagandist Organization ‘Media Matters’ Propagandizes

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2011/09/24

I know, right? Totally shocking that the Left-wing propaganda outfit “Media Mutters” would actually engage in blatant propaganda!eleventy! Hube quotes the recent Media Mutters propaganda:

At the Fox News-Google GOP presidential debate, co-moderator Chris Wallace used the pejorative term “illegals” to refer to undocumented immigrants and read a question from the public that used the term, as well. Journalists have called on the media to stop using the term “illegals,” but Fox’s “straight news” shows use it consistently nonetheless.

“Journalists have called on the media…” Wait, what? Car companies have called on the car manufacturers to … Makes as much sense there, bub. And it’s not all journalists who have called on journalists to propagandize. Just some of them.

But let’s get to the issue. If someone is in this or any other country illegally, that someone is an illegal alien. It’s just the facts of the matter. But Media Mutters wants people to believe that stating the truth is a pejorative while using a rosy euphemism is honest. What a load of hooey. This sort of thing sounds like something the radical Socialist George Soros and his anti-American Open Society Institute would say. Wait, hasn’t George Soros pumped huge amounts of cash into Media Mutters’ treasury? Must just be a coincidence. (As Jethro Gibbs says, I don’t believe in coincidence.)

But what is it with these Leftist nutballs, anyway? I have a few thoughts on that.

The Left has owned the media for several decades so they’re used to being able to frame the debate and change the definitions of words in order to fit their agenda almost without challenge. Since the advent of the New Media, which the Dinosaur Media cannot control, the “gatekeeper” status of Old Media is nigh vanished, to the Left’s utter dismay. As the Left’s powerlock on information control collapses, the Left will go through ever greater hysterics, which merely serve to hasten their own demise. (Oops, that’s gonna get me reported to #AttackWatch.)

Rick Perry’s Florida Debate

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2011/09/23

Or

Catch A Falling Star

As all the politically aware know, there was a Republican Presidential debate down in Florida yesterday. And the top Republican announced candidates were there. And consensus has it: Rick Perry flopped once again.

Michelle Malkin notes Perry’s “Cringe-worthiest debate moment”:

The cringe-worthiest moment, by a hair, was when Perry botched what should have been his most potent attack on Mitt Romney’s chronic flip-flopping. As I noted on Twitter when it happened, any random high schooler at the CPAC conference in Washington could have done better than this.

If this is how Perry’s going to take Obama on in debates, we’re in trouble. Someone inject him with some Red Bull and a dash of Herman Cain’s personality.

Transcript:

PERRY: “I think Americans just don’t know sometimes which Mitt Romney they’re dealing with. Is it the Mitt Romney that was on the side of…against…the Second Amendment before he was for the Second Amendment…was it was..before he was before these social programs, uh, from the standpoint he was standing, uh, for Roe vs. Wade before he was against Roe, uh, Roe vs. Wade…uh…he was…uh for Race To The Top…

Uh…[pause]…he’s for Obamacare and now he’s against it…I mean, we’ll wait until tomorrow and, and, and wait to see which Mitt Romney we’re really talking to…

Here’s Ed Morrissey’s take:

As I commented last night on Twitter, Rick Perry has begun to remind me of the Minnesota Vikings in these debates. He starts off strong and runs up a lead in the first half, starts coasting, and then eventually turns the ball over repeatedly and loses. For the third debate in a row, Perry lost steam in the second half, lost focus — and in this case lost the ability to put together a coherent sentence in an attack that was clearly rehearsed. Perry leaped at the chance to attack Romney as a flip-flopper, which shouldn’t be that hard to do, and … well, see for yourself:


Some might argue that debates don’t prove anything about how a candidate will function as President, but that’s not entirely true. First, one has to win the election, and offering incoherent ramblings on television is no way to do that. Second, voters have to have confidence in a candidate’s abilities to win their support, and anyone watching this part of the debate had to be wondering whether Perry is really up to the task of debating Barack Obama, or dealing with the media in a press conference, which is most certainly part of the job.

I’d expect Perry’s numbers to soften up after this performance. And with that comes an opening for a late arrival into the race, especially if Romney’s numbers don’t move upward.

And RS McCain’s take:

Perry looked like a loser last night: “Cringeworthy.” We’ll get the results Saturday of a Republican straw poll in Florida, and if Perry doesn’t win that, the “Anybody But Romney” vote may start looking around for another horse to ride.

Seriously, um, dude, you gotta … I mean if you’re … spit it out, dude! If Rick Perry were Ricki Perry the female governor of Texas, the mainstream media would be asking “Are you ditzy?” But since he’s a man…

If that was Perry’s most cringeworthy portion of the debate, there is another portion where Perry turned the tractor beam into a repulsor beam (Star Trek TNG), and that was his illegal immigration fiasco.

From Michelle Malkin:

Perry lost big in his continued defense of DREAM Act illegal alien student preferences. Frank Luntz’s focus group on Sean Hannity’s show after the debate unanimously panned Perry on immigration and especially took umbrage at his condescending line about critics not having a “heart.” Which follows on his similarly-toned line from the last debate about how Republicans should care about students no matter what their last names sound like.

(Reminder: Texas Tea Party activists to Perry: Hey, what about our borders?)

RS McCain quotes his own American Spectator article concerning this.

Rick Perry may have forfeited his lead in the Republican presidential field during Thursday night’s debate in Orlando when he declared that those who oppose subsidizing college education for illegal immigrants are heartless.

“If you say that we should not educate children who have come into our state for no other reason than they have been brought there by no fault of their own, I don’t think you have a heart,” Perry said, after being criticized by former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney for a Texas policy providing in-state tuition for illegals.

Romney, who vetoed a similar tuition bill in Massachusetts, pointed out that this amounts to a $22,000-a-year discount for illegal aliens, as compared to the tuition that would be paid by U.S. students from the other 49 states attending universities in Texas. “That doesn’t make sense to me,” Romney said.

It didn’t make sense to former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum either. “You’re sort of making this leap that unless… the taxpayers subsidize it, [immigrants] won’t be able to go [to college].… The point is, why are we subsidizing it?… And why should they be given preferential treatment as an illegal in this country?” . . .

Tina Korbe has a piece of advice for Perry.

Perry’s support for Texas DREAM need not cost him the support of those who are strongly opposed to amnesty for illegal immigrants or who strongly support — as Perry puts it — “more boots on the ground” to secure our borders. In other words, Perry should reassure voters he’s not squishy on border security nor does he favor amnesty for illegals — and deflect attention from the Texas DREAM Act as much as possible, not call attention to it with self-righteous pronouncements.

I have a different piece of advice for Perry: Stop alienating most of the voters and the vast, vast majority of Republicans and TEA Partiers. As I noted in my article Numbers Democrats Don’t Want You To See (and apparently neither does Rick Perry):

The data stays bad when looking at educating illegal immigrants.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey [August 23, 2011] shows that only 32% of Likely U.S. Voters believe children of parents in this country illegally should be allowed to attend public school here. Fifty-three percent (53%) do not believe those young illegal immigrants should be allowed to attend public school.

Seventy-two percent (72%) of voters believe parents should be required to prove they are legal residents of the United States when registering their child for public school. Twenty-one percent (21%) oppose such a requirement.

Several states have made illegal immigrants eligible for lower in-state tuition at colleges and universities, but 81% of voters oppose such a move in their state. Just 12% think illegal immigrants should be eligible for these tuition breaks in their home state. Opposition to allowing illegal immigrants to be eligible for in-state tuition is slightly stronger than it was back in October 2007.

The vast majority of voters are in direct opposition to the Democrats’ position on educating illegals, but again, the Democrats don’t want the voters to know they are in such a vast majority while the Democrat leadership is holding the extremist position. This issue also definitely hurts Governor Perry as he stands alongside the Democrats (in a “me, too” position) in contradiction to the vast majority of the public.

So, Rick Perry’s “heartless” lashing out was lashing out at 81 percent of American voters. Not a good way to win anyone’s vote. But there’s yet another piece in the chain of events in Perry’s debate collapse. Michelle Malkin provides evidence that Rick Perry’s Liberal tactic anecdotal heart-string pull for his unilateral Big Government crony capitalist “pay to play” Gardasil Executive Order was a case of, errr, erroneous memory.

As I wrote in my Sarah Palin Suddenly Electable article, much of Palin’s improving polling stems from other Republicans flaming out and people taking a second look at Sarah Palin. I also explained in The Palin Paradox if one makes the premise of Palin knowing she’s running but waiting for the right moment to run, Perry’s mid-August entry into the race — after he promised his Texas voters he wouldn’t — pushed Palin’s timeline back. With Perry’s debate implosion the last couple debates, I believe Perry just pushed Palin’s timeline back forward again.

Numbers Democrats Don’t Want You To See

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2011/09/20

There are a lot of numbers Democrats don’t want you to see, and many of those numbers are poll numbers on various Democrat pet issues. Because those numbers show the Democrats are decidedly in the minority. But the Democrats don’t want the people to be aware of the fact they are actually in the majority and not, after all, “extremists” or “far-right” or any other personal attack the Democrats use from day to day to villify most of America.

Let’s start with the fiscal and social values of the population. According to multiple Rasmussen polls spanning multiple years, the population is overwhelmingly more conservative and overwhelmingly more moderate on fiscal issues than liberal, despite the outright liberal position held by the Democrat Congressmen. These same Rasmussen polls show a three-way split in the 30s on social issues, with the Conservative position being the position of plurality. Again, despite the Democrat politicians’ nearly lock-step Liberalism regarding social issues.

Twenty-nine percent (29%) of Likely U.S. Voters remain conservative on both fiscal and social issues, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey.

Just 10% say they are fiscal and social liberals. Sixty-one percent (61%) are some other combination. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

These findings are consistent with surveys back to November 2007, as is the continuing pattern that voters tend to be more fiscally conservative than socially conservative.

Forty-four percent (44%) describe themselves as conservative on fiscal issues such as taxes, government spending and business regulation. Forty percent (40%) say they’re moderate when it comes to fiscal issues, while only 11% claim to be fiscal liberals.

But just 35% say they’re conservative when it comes to issues like abortion, public prayer and church-state topics. Thirty percent (30%) are moderate in this area, and 31% are social liberals.

It is very clear that, over a span of several years, the US population is far more Conservative than the leaders of the Democrat Party. This is why the Democrats don’t want people to know they’re not alone and that the population does not actually support the Democrat position on much of anything. Let’s just repeat that information the Democrats don’t want you to know. 44 percent of the US population is fiscally conservative, 40 percent of the US population is fiscally moderate, while a miniscule 11 percent is fiscally liberal. And that extreme minority fiscally liberal position is precisely where the Democrat elites live. The Republican elites aren’t much better, living in the fiscally moderate position, leaving the plurality of the people essentially without representation. This is why the likes of Karl Rove and Charles Krauthammer and the so-called “conservatives” in publications like the New York Times need to derisively dismiss actual Conservatives. They can’t let the word get out, either.

On to the next issue: Illegal immigration. And do get the facts straight, it’s not about immigration; it’s about illegal immigration. 65 percent of We the People want border control dealt with first and foremost while 59 percent of the population believes the US Government’s policy favors illegal immigration in direct contradiction with the wishes of We the People.

Let My Criminals Go

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2011/06/28

Moses told Pharoah “Let my people go!” Obama told the legal system “Let my criminals go!” And he’s still doing it.

Practically as soon as Obama became President, he began his process of freeing his favored criminals. The New Black Panther Party, and certain members of it, were guilty of voter intimidation and other things resulting from their criminal actions in Philadelphia during the 2008 election. The Obama administration dropped the charges after judgment was rendered.

Operation Fast and Furious/Gunrunner. Illegal purchases and transport of firearms from US to Mexico under the watchful and approving eye of the Obama Administration. The gun dealers dutifully notified the authorities, who told them to let it happen. As a result, hundreds if not thousands of guns were illegally bought and walked into Mexico. Two American law enforcement officials were murdered as a direct result. This was going to be a backdoor way to create more Anti-Second Amendment laws and regulations. Until the news of the Obama Administration’s involvement went viral. Fast and Furious/Gunrunner was stopped immediately after it became public knowledge, but not before the damage was already done. How many people were murdered? How many lives destroyed? How much thug rule was created and advanced because the Obama Administration refused to do its Constitutionally-required job?

Now another story breaks wide open, causing the Obama Administration to put a halt to another of its secret Unconstitutional efforts to free criminals from the jaws of Justice. Judicial Watch has the story.

DHS Stealth Amnesty Cover Up Exposed

Last Updated: Mon, 06/27/2011 – 2:34pm

Officials at the Department of Homeland Security lied to Congress and the media to cover up a secret amnesty program that dismissed the deportation of illegal immigrants across the U.S., including those with criminal convictions.

The scandalous story of how the government agency charged with keeping America safe systematically cancels pending deportations was first reported by Texas’s largest newspaper last year. The remarkable program stunned the legal profession and baffled immigration attorneys who say the government bounced their clients’ deportation even when expulsion was virtually guaranteed.

After the story broke other media outlets began to dig around and Senate leaders launched an investigation into the stealth amnesty program that led to a 40% increase in the dismissal of deportations last year. Homeland Security officials denied it existed and scrambled to conceal details, according to new information revealed by the newspaper that originally cracked the story.

So, Obama’s DHS ordered its people to dismiss deportation proceedings against illegal aliens, including criminal illegal aliens (All illegal aliens are criminal. That’s the definition of “illegal alien”.) that is illegal aliens that have committed crimes since arriving in the US illegally or illegally staying beyond their time limit. And some of those crimes those illegal aliens committed while being in the US illegally include sex crimes.

Why is the Obama Administration so cavalier when it comes to rape victims? Why is the Obama Administration so cavalier when it comes to murder victims? Why is the Obama Administration so cavalier when it comes to voter intimidation? Why does the Obama Administration so willingly violate Federal Law and the US Constitution?

And why do any Americans support him or his administration?

This Is The US For God’s Sake!!!!

Posted by Foxfier on 2009/04/30

I just got an email from my mother that ended with this line; my cousin– her niece– is down in Texas on a fire.

Their camp is quarantined, none of the fire-fighter men are allowed to go anywhere in less than pairs, and the fire-fighter women must have at least two guys with them if they go anywhere. There are way more people in camp than usual, because they have a bunch of security guards.

Why?

Because they are in an area often used for illegals entering the US– and they have been shot at, since my cousin got there. We can’t even know exactly where they are– not explained why, maybe the fire fighting equipment is just too good of a target?

I can’t find a single story on this, no matter how I phrase it in google news search. A few mentions of fires in west Texas, but not much even there.

They’re fairly close to the Mexican border, risking their lives to fight fire…and on top of it all, they’re being shot at by people breaking into the country.

If anyone can find a story where the MSN caught wind of this, please, pass it on– you can be sure that when or if the out-of-state fire fighters end up having to kill some SOB that’s trying to murder them while they fight fire, it will get all over the news.
