3DHS / Fear Mongering 101.....the left's calling card
« on: March 21, 2017, 07:55:10 PM »
When you listen to leftist pundits & politicians like NY Mayor DeBlasio or CA congresscritter De Leon, you'd think they were preparing their constituencies for some SWAT-like round-up of anyone, including infant children, here illegally.  Criticizing acts not just not happeneing, but at no time ever advocated as pending policy.

Thus their efforts to adopt actual legal sanctuary city or even sanctuary state "protect" those poor defenseless children, just trying to leave school to get home to their mothers

Where the hell is the media to pounce on these politicans on where they're coming up with such fear pushing rhetoric??

The "freeloader" charge is so low on the totem poll of why folks like myself are so adamant about enforcing our immigration laws.  MOST folks that come here illegally, work damn hard....and its that reason that keeps wages down so low, because they are exploited for that purpose. 

Border enforcement 1st.....and let's refer to it as "comprehensive" border enforcement
- a wall
- e-verify implimentation
- deportation of violent criminal illegal immigrants
- staunch prosecution of businesses that actively hire illegal immigrants

THEN, we can start overhauling the actual immigration process

Actually the tax payers aren't so much stuck with paying as much as the Hospital ER's are simply screwed out of getting reimbursed for their services, since they are under legal requirement to care for anyone that comes into their ER

3DHS / The CBO "issue"....
« on: March 19, 2017, 05:10:39 PM »
Of course the Democrats are pouncing on the CBO report, proclaiming how so may are going to "lose" their coverage under the pending GOP legislation of replacement.  Just a few points of contention

a) despite initial claims, by no other than Pelosi no less, it would seem that "success" of Obamacare is simply how many people are insured, not the quality of that care or the skyrocketing premiums

b) the CBO report doesn't (actually can't until its actually in place) acknowledge the massive cost savings that would occur when individuals can actually purchase their healthcare insurance across state lines

c) and lastly, and for me, most importantly, the reason for such a proclamation that people will "lose" their coverage, is that the mandate that they MUST LEGALLY have insurance, or be deemed out of compliance, and literally be penalized under Obamacare, is in people that have "lost" their coverage, never actually lost it, they're simply no longer added by the CBO as going to have been mandated to have it.

I'm still no fan of the plan, as the Government still has too many fingers in the broth, but at the very least, the freedom to choose and access what people want, and don't want, will be back in play again

The issue again for me Kimba is legal/Constitutional.  People who want to come here have no constitutional protections.  Explointed or not, people who come here illegally, should have ZERO support in American tax dollars.  And those here who hire illegal immigrants, thus pushing the demand, absolutely should have the heavy hand of Federal justice come down on them, and then watch how fast that demand nosedives. 

But until we have some rational control of our own fricken border, none of what we want as far as legal immigrants matter

That could be a rationalizion for not doing it, but its not founded in anything legal or constitutional, which is the point.  Who knows how many Americans might have died, if Nazis were able to infiltrate under the guise of "refugees".  That's the point....We were at war then, we are at war now. 

The Constitution gives the President precisely this power.  It's ok for people to not like Trump or the policies he advocates.  But he's well within his legal right to impose such a temporary ban, regardless of how others might find it offensive, or mean, or "discriminatory".  People wanting to come here do NOT have religious freedom protections.  We, as a sovereign nation, get to decide.  And the President, right or wrong, decided that people from some regions of the world should have a stop sign applied....just like when Carter imposed his temporary ban, and not a whiff of condemnation

Now...about this latest Hawaiian Judge to squelch Trump's latest EO regarding a TEMPORARY travel ban from just a FEW countries, that are predominantly Muslim.....This ruling is wrong, on so many levels.  The jist of the ruling is that the Judge proclaims that although there's no actual language that specifcally bans anyone based on their religion, the apparent jist of the EO does indeed apparently ban folks from entering this country, based on their religion. 

Let's put away the Trump hatred mindset for a few moments and deal with present Constitutional guidelines and legal precedent. 

1) Let's pretend that the Judge is exactly correct....that he was able to read the mind of Trump, and ascertain the REAL reason for the EO, that of banning Muslims from entering this country, simply because they're Muslim.  Guess what.....the Constitution gives him precisely that authority.  Constitutional protections, which includes religious protections, ONLY APPLIES TO AMERICANS, AS IN LEGAL CITIZENS OF THIS COUNTRY.  It does NOT apply to ANYONE NOT of this country, which includes ANY person, or ANY religion.  That's egregious error #1

2) The Judge even concedes that there is no language that specifically bans anyone from this country, based on their religion.  However the Judge apparently knows how nefarious Trump is, and has decided to read into the EO, something that simply isn't there.  A gross overstepping of Judicial authority.  That's egregious error #2

3) If this was a supposed ban on all Muslims, it would have included ALL Muslim countries, and not just those that just happen to also be designated terrorist havens/training grounds, by the PREVIOUS Administration  Egregious error #3

4) Lastly, we have in previous presidents have performed precisely that, which Trump is trying to do...impose a TEMPORARY BAN on specific locations, as in countries, NOT religions.  Jimmy Carter imposed a ban on Iranian immigrants.  Where was the outrage??  The beloved FDR, one of the Left's icons, imposed a ban on even Jewish refugees, for fear of Nazi spies hiding among them.  Fricken error #4

Yeah, how long after Oblather's election did we keep hearing Trump and the birthers keep claiming he wasn't an American citizen?

Don't know, since I was neither one of them, nor found it compelling.  Just hearsay, and then it was dropped.  Yet the media kept playing it up as if it was still some big Trump issue.  Thank you again for demonstrating yet another blatant media double standard and their treatment of Trump in particular

There's always wishful thinking for you to fall back on, I suppose.  Still doesn't address the gross double standard, in play

..... and now, even the Dems on the Senate Intelligence committee are conceding there's just nothing there regarding collusion.  Where the frell is the media in countering the ongoing accusations and inferrences that there was (and still is) by the left and liberal democrat pundits??

Speaking of double standard, we've now had a confirmed TWO FISA subpoenas that looked into the Russian connections to the Trump campaign, initiated just prior to the Nov elections, one of those specifically targeting the server used, and to this day, in NOTHING.  So, who is the media still allowing the Dems to run these baseless allegations??

I agree whole heartedly, Kimba.  It took a couple of years for Reagan's tax cuts to take effect.  Same with Bush II.   And when Obama's economic numbers flatlined after 2+years, it was simply "the new normal".  GDP under Obama was anemic, and we had the highest number of folks simply stop looking for echoes the WH talking points, simply "the new normal", when we all know that with similar numbers, a GOP President would have been crucified, much like what Clinton did to Bush I  (Remember the campaign slogan?, "It's the Economy, stupid")  And Bush's 1's economy was only mildly bad compared to Obama's

We can't connect too much of this spike in numbers, to Trump, although you can't dismiss both the enthusiasm that both the stock market, and people simply looking for work are having, as both have spiked after Trump's election.  But I agree, the economic numbers need more time for crunching, to see just how effective the policies implimented are, not just the rhetoric

Class is in

Hate it, or hate it more, at least the GOP is up front in trying to explain the legislation, vs Peolosi's tactic of ramming it down our throats to "see what's in it"

I've been up to speed on this epic bastion of tolerance by the left, as soon as these "safe spaces" started popping up across the academic landscape.  But good video, none the less

Apparently it's one of the few things Clinton was being truthful about.....lecturing us that if folks didn't accept the results of the election, our very democracy could be at risk
