FoxNews.com reports that

President Donald Trump told Fox News on Thursday that he has “the absolute right to declare a national emergency” if he can’t reach an agreement with congressional Democrats to provide funding for his promised wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.

“The law is very clear. I mean, we have the absolute right to declare a national emergency,” Trump told Sean Hannity in an exclusive interview. “This is a national emergency, if you look what’s happening.”

Trump did not lay out a specific timetable for when he might take such a step, saying: “I think we’re going to see what happens over the next few days.” However, he appeared to hold out hope for making a deal to secure wall funding and fully reopen the government.

“We should be able to make a deal with Congress,” the president said. “If you look, Democrats, in Congress, especially the new ones coming in, are starting to say, ‘Wait a minute, we can’t win this battle with Trump, because of the fact that it’s just common sense. How can we say that a wall doesn’t work?’”

The president spoke to Fox News on the banks of the Rio Grande, where he traveled to argue his claim that a barrier would deter drug and human trafficking into the United States.

“Death is pouring through,” Trump said. “We have crime and death and it’s not just at the border. They get through the border and they go and filter into the country and you have MS-13 gangs in places like Los Angeles and you have gangs all over Long Island, which we’re knocking the hell out of. There should be no reason for us to have to do this. They shouldn’t be allowed in and if we had the barrier, they wouldn’t be allowed in.”

The president said a wall would be “virtually a hundred percent effective and [House Speaker] Nancy [Pelosi] and [Senate Democratic Leader] Chuck [Schumer] know that, but it’s politics. It’s about the 2020 campaign, it’s about running for president. That’s what they’re doing. They’re already doing it. It’s a shame. They’ve got to put the country first.”

Democrats repeatedly have refused to approve any legislation to fund the wall. The standoff led to the partial government shutdown, which is set to hit the three-week mark Friday.

“Everyone wants us to win this battle,” Trump said. “It’s common sense … Look, we’re not going anywhere. We’re not changing our mind because there’s nothing to change your mind about. The wall works [and] if we don’t have a steel or concrete barrier, we’re all wasting a lot of time.”

So, what law gives President Trump “the right to declare a national emergency”?

Per psmag.com,

In 1976, Congress passed the National Emergencies Act, codifying—without truly restricting—this authority. The law gives a president the power to declare a national emergency when she or he wishes. Under the act, an emergency lapses after a year, unless it’s renewed—and it often is.

President Jimmy Carter declared the first national emergency under the NEA in 1979, with an order blocking Iranian government property from entering the U.S. in response to the Iran hostage crisis. Carter determined that this situation, like the many to follow it, met the criteria of being “an unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security.”

Since that first order in 1979, American presidents have declared 58 national emergencies. According to the Brennan Center’s running count, 31 of these are still in effect—including the ban on Iranian property, which was extended in November of 2018. In other words, the country has been in some state of emergency for almost four decades.

These 58 national emergencies include declarations over dealings with Yemen, Syria, and North Korea, among others; sanctions against an array of terrorist groups, including one after 9/11; and various orders concerning nuclear weapons, diamonds imported from Sierra Leone, and the 2009 swine flu epidemic. Most recently, George W. Bush declared 13 and Barack Obama 12, most of which are still in effect, according to CNN.

I hope that it is not lost on you, gentle readers, that I used a Liberal source to derive the information above.

Yesterday morning, I was watching Fox News and saw Democrat after Democrat insist that the Crisis on our Southern Border is not a “national emergency”.

If millions upon millions of illegal aliens breaking into our Sovereign Nation, with a percentage of them killing and assaulting Americans, bringing illegal dangerous drugs such as heroin over the Southern Border, and dealing in human trafficking as well, is not a “national emergency”, then I want to know what is.

Pelosi having a hangnail?

Through all of the ongoing Democratic temper tantrum over this issue, I have not heard them bring up Sheriff’s Deputy Ronil Singh, his widow, or his 5 month old who will never get to know his Daddy, who gave his life in service to a country which he came to legally and loved.

All I hear from the Democrats, even those I work with at my paying gig, is “those poor, poor, government workers…whatever will they do?”.

Not a peep from them about the Angel Moms and Dads who are left behind to grieve their children murdered by barbarians who were not supposed to be in America in the first place.

Whether San Fan Nan, Chuck U. Schumer and the rest of “the smartest people in the room” decide to “negotiate” or not is up to them. The president is not going to budge.

He knows what is at stake and he knows who elected him and why.

According to Jim Hoft of GatewayPundit.com, some of the Democrats are breaking ranks with their leaders in favor of a wall.

The Democrats had better wake up and realize exactly how clueless and insensitive they appear to the American Public.

They are supposed to be serving Americans…not illegal aliens, otherwise known as “Future Democratic Voters”.

With or without them, the President of the United States of America is going to build a wall along our Southern Border.

Unlike the Democrats, he takes his promises seriously.

So help him God.

Until He Comes,

Obama to Defy Judge and Grant Amnesty By Executive Order

th (8)It appears that Obama is about to create some new Democrat Voters.

Thehill.com reports that

A newly leaked internal DHS memorandum produced for an off-the-record agency conclave reveals that the Obama administration is actively planning to circumvent a federal court injunction that suspended part of last November’s deferral-based amnesty initiative. The document, apparently prepared as follow-up from a DHS “Regulations Retreat” last summer, appears sure to re-ignite concerns in Congress as well as federal judges in the Fifth Circuit. The Administration has already been criticized from the bench for handing out work permits to hundreds of thousands of deferred action beneficiaries, in direct violation of a district court’s order. With the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals deciding any day now whether to deny the Administration’s request to reverse that injunction, this public leak has come at a critical juncture for U.S. enforcement policy. 

Last June, four months after Texas federal judge Andrew Hanen’s order to freeze President’s DAPA and Expanded DACA programs—disclosure: the Immigration Reform Law Institute has filed briefs in these cases—DHS’s immigration policy makers apparently held a “Regulations Retreat” to discuss “different options” for “open market Employment Authorization Document (EAD) regulatory changes.” EAD is the statutory term for work permits. From a memo recording these discussions, we now know that the Obama DHS has, rather than pausing to allow the courts to assess the constitutionality of its enforcement nullification initiatives, been gearing up to roll out one or more of four plans drawn up at the meeting, each one designed to provide EADs to millions of nonimmigrants, including those lawfully present and visa overstayers, crippling the actual employment-based visa system on the federal statute-book.

The internal memo reveals four options of varying expansiveness, with option 1 providing EADs to “all individuals living in the United States”, including illegal aliens, visa-overstayers, and H-1B guest-workers, while option 4 provides EADs only to those on certain unexpired non-immigrant visas. Giving EADs to any of the covered individuals, however, is in direct violation of Congress’s Immigration & Nationality Act and works to dramatically subvert our carefully wrought visa system. 

As mentioned, the first plan the memo discusses basically entails giving EADs to anyone physically present in the country who until now has been prohibited from getting one. A major positive to this option, the memo reads, is that it would “address the needs of some of the intended deferred action population.” Although DHS doesn’t say it expressly, included here would be those 4.3 million people covered by the president’s DAPA and Expanded DACA programs whose benefits were supposed to have been halted in the Hanen decision. On top of working around the Hanen injunction, this DHS plan would also dole out unrestricted EADs to those on temporary non-immigrant visas, such as H-1B-holders (their work authorizations being tied to their employers) and another 5 to 6 million illegal aliens thus far not covered by any of the President’s deferred action amnesty programs. By claiming absolute authority to grant work authorization to any alien, regardless of status, DHS is in effect claiming it can unilaterally de-couple the 1986 IRCA work authorization statutes from the main body of U.S. visa law. While DHS must still observe the statutory requirements for issuing visas, the emerging doctrine concedes, the administration now claims unprecedented discretionary power to permit anyone inside our borders to work. 

The anonymous DHS policymakers state that a positive for this option is that it “could cover a greater number of individuals.” In a strikingly conclusory bit of bureaucratese, they state that because illegal aliens working in the country “have already had the US labor market tested” it has been “demonstrat[ed] that their future employment won’t adversely affect US workers.” The labor market, in other words, has already been stress-tested through decades of foreign-labor dumping and the American working-class, which disproportionately includes minorities, working mothers, the elderly, and students, is doing just fine. Apparently, the fact that 66 million Americans and legal aliens are currently unemployed or out of the job-market was not a discussion point at the DHS “Retreat.” 

Bottom line: The memo foreshadows more tactical offensives in a giant administrative amnesty for all 12 million illegal aliens who’ve broken our immigration laws (and many other laws) that will emerge before the next inaugural in January 2016. According to the authors, one negative factor for granting EADs to illegal aliens, visa-overstayers, etc., is that they’ll still “face difficulties in pursuing permanent residence due to ineligibility or being subject to unlawful presence inadmissibility for which a waiver is required.” This is in reference to the reality that an EAD isn’t a green card and that eventually the EAD-beneficiaries are supposed to apply to ‘adjust their status,’ which cannot be done without showing evidence of lawful status. But this might change, they write. The DHS “macro-level policy goal”, we’re told, is to assist individuals to stay “until they are ready and able to become immigrants.” This would seem to say that DHS, the largest federal law enforcement agency in the nation, is banking on awarding those who’ve broken our laws and violated our national sovereignty.

Will the 26 plaintiff states that have challenged the President’s DAPA program bring this memo to the Fifth Circuit’s attention, before they issue their closely-awaited decision?  If this document is indeed the cutting edge of Obama’s strategy for DHS to circumvent Judge Hanen’s injunction order, it would confirm the Administration’s bad faith and contempt both for the court and the law.

So, with 40% of America’s Workforce giving up on the American Dream and dropping out of our workforce, King Barack the First has once again decided that he will increase the competition for America’s jobs, by issuing a Royal Decree (Executive Order) granting amnesty to those who have illegally entered our Sovereign Nation, to the detriment of legal American citizens.

In 2013, brilliant American Economist and Political Pundit, Dr. Thomas Sowell, was interviewed by Laura Ingraham, on her syndicated radio program. Here is what he had to say about Amnesty and the Economy:

That’s incredible. I mean —first of all to an economist, it is incredible to speak about shortages without talking about prices, in this case wages…You know there, there have been so many predictions of shortages of so many occupations and the shortages don’t materialize. And why not? Because if there is a shortage, the wage rate goes up. That attracts in more people and lo and behold, the jobs are filled.

In agriculture, the farmers would obviously prefer to get workers who get low pay rather than workers they have to pay a higher wage. And as long as there are an unlimited supply of farm workers coming in from Mexico, they will never have to raise the wages very much. They say Americans won’t do these jobs. These are jobs Americans have done for generations, if not centuries. And it’s a time when millions of Americans are out of work, and are looking for any kind of work. And so this is utter nonsense.

…They constantly talk about immigrants in the abstract. You know, there are no such thing as abstract immigrants. There are immigrants from country a, b, c, d. They are radically different. People coming in from some countries almost never go on welfare. Immigrants coming in from other countries go on welfare to a great extent. If we’re going to have a rational immigration policy, then we have to be able to decide what people, what countries, what occupations — things like that, instead of rushing everything through.

The other main thing though is that if we don’t control the borders, we don’t have an immigration policy because regardless of what policy you put on paper, if people can just walk across the border when they darn well please, then your policy means nothing. The other thing that bothers me is the Republicans seem to think we will give — illegal immigrants citizenship if they do a, b or c. Democrats say x, y and z. I don’t know why we need promise anybody citizenship before we get control of the borders and have time to sit down and think and look at the facts, and then try to draw up some rational policy.

What makes the current influx of illegal immigrants exempt from the rules and regulations that every other generation of immigrants to this country had to abide by in order to become legal citizens of the greatest nation in the world? By being here illegally, they are not entitled to the same rights as natural-born or naturalized American citizens.

And, yet, even as I write this, they are in our hospitals, taking advantage of our charity and the finest health care system in the world, and driving our streets, with either forged drivers licenses or those obtained from states who have acquiesced and given them to these “undocumented workers”.

This is in no way a human rights issue. Freedom is God-given, and with freedom comes responsibility. With citizenship comes responsibility, like paying taxes and making your own way.

My concerns about this whole “Path to Citizenship” business, can be divided into three bullet points. (Hey, I used to be a VP of Marketing. What do you expect?)

1. Patriotism – Will these new “citizens” be willing to fly our flag above theirs? Will they be willing, if called upon, to serve in our Armed Forces, at home or abroad? Will they love this country, more than the one they left?

2. Loyalty – When these “new Americans” achieve the right to vote, are they all going to vote Democrat, so that they can receive more FREE STUFF? Is the Republican Party shooting themselves in both feet by pushing an outcome which will simply add new Democratic Voters? As I asked in the first point, will they honestly embrace our sovereign nation as their new home? Or, will they remain loyal to Mexico?

3.  Immigration – Are we rewarding illegal behavior, while at the same time, insulting all of the brave souls who have come here legally, seeking a better life for themselves and their families?

I understand that people want a better life for themselves and their children.  We are all immigrants in this land, except for American Indians, and they got here by crossing the Bering Straight.  But there is a huge difference between immigrating here legally and sneaking in illegally, between assimilating into an existing culture, and insisting on replacing a country’s existing culture with that of the country you left.

I’m all for assisting anyone in becoming a legal citizen of the United States, if that is their wish.  But, it must be done the right way, and they must accept responsibility for their illegal entry, show a willingness to learn our language, and embrace our American way of life, including respecting the American Flag.

So, let’s take this one step at a time.  As Dr. Sowell said: Secure our borders.  Enforce the anti-illegal immigration laws.  And if the Federal Government won’t, the states, like Arizona, will have to pass their own laws.  America became a great nation because it is a melting pot of American-born and legally-immigrated citizens with a shared allegiance, not a multi-cultural United Nations with everyone loyal to their home country.

As the diseases which the Mexican Munchkin Migration brought in with them have warned us, a wide-open Southern Border is as big a threat to the sovereignty of the United States as anything that our enemies can throw at us right now.  All of OUR SERVANTS, up on Capitol HIll, need to quit playing political games.  The safety of America is at stake .  SECURE THE BORDER NOW.

Until He Comes,

Petulant President Pantywaist to Create New Democrat Voters Tonight

AFBrancoAmnestyLameDuck11192014PROLOGUE: In 1955, America’s Pastor, Reverend Billy Graham, said the following prophetic words:

Many Christian parents are becoming fearful that they cannot properly train their children in this lawless and wicked age. We have received scores of letters in our office asking, “What is the answer? What can I do with my son? My daughter?”

We are beginning to reap what has been sown for the past generation. We have taught the philosophy of the devil, who says, “Do as you please.” Behaviorism has been the moral philosophy of much of our education in the past few years. Psychiatrists have told parents to let their children do as they please, lest in restraining them they may warp the children’s personalities.

We have taken God out of our educational systems and thought we could get away with it. We have sown the wind, and we are now reaping the whirlwind. We have laughed at God, religion and the Bible.

Many of our educational leaders sneer at the old-fashioned idea of God and a moral code. Movies feature sex, sin, crime and alcohol. Teenagers see these things portrayed alluringly on the screen and decide to go and try them. Newspapers have played up crime and sex until they seem glamorous to our young people.

Instead of publicizing the good and constructive things that teenagers do, we have played up the sensational lawbreaker. We have taught our young people that morals are relative and not absolute.

United States President Barack Hussein Obama is one of those children.

Tonight, Petulant President Pantywaist is going to come on our TV sets to tell us that he is going to grant amnesty to 5 million individuals who broke our nation’s law by coming across our borders illegally. Additionally, in a nutshell, he is going to tell us that he is well within his Constitutional rights to do so, and there is nothing we can do about it.

The little brat will probably hold his breath and jump up and down until he turns blue, also.

Do you realize that 3 Americans have been beheaded by ISIS in videos which have been seen around the world, and President Barack Hussein Obama has done nothing at all about it?

Oh sure, he sent some of our planes, and some of his allies’ planes, on bombing runs, in a vain attempt to bomb a guerrilla force, which never stays in one place very long, into submission.

Like every single grand scheme that Obama has come up with, this has not worked either.

So, what makes Obama believe that granting amnesty to all of these criminals will magically turn America into a better country?

It is because his huge ego will not let him believe otherwise.

And, because his political party’s only hope to stay alive is to create new voters.

As I wrote a couple of years back, Obama suffers from Educated-Beyond-His-Own-Intelligence Syndrome.

He also suffers, as I have written, from a great disconnect with the lives and opinions of average Americans, like you and me.

The majority of the nation did not want Obamacare, but he and his Democratic minions wanted it, so here we are, stuck with it.

The majority of Americans, do not want Obama to grant amnesty to illegal aliens, but he and his Democratic minions want it in order to be able to win elections, so again, we will be stuck with it.

Obama and the Far Left do not care what damage their ideas do to our country, because they believe in their own intellectual superiority and infallibility.

“Even though Socialism has failed everywhere it has been tried, we will make it work in America. After all, we’re smarter than they were.”

They overestimate themselves greatly.

It’s not the fact that this generation of Liberals are a bunch of snotty little brats that really gets my goat. It is the fact that they have no sense of history and are so ungrateful as regards the sacrifices made by their fathers before them.

Take Barry Soetoro, otherwise known as Barack Hussein Obama, for example. It is quite evident to anyone with the brains to figure it out,(of course, that automatically excludes liberals) that Obama cares more for these non-citizens, who he is fixing to grant amnesty to, than the individual Americans who were so savagely beheaded by the Muslims, whom he wrote that he would stand beside if the political winds turned in an “ugly direction”, as noted in his “Bomber” Bill Ayers-penned autobiography, “Dreams of My Father”.

Barack Hussein Obama assumed the office of the presidency, riding on a crest of Americans who wanted to be part of something historic, with the election of the First Black President.

After his poor performance in his first term as president, he was reelected by Americans who wanted to maintain their lifestyle of existence on the government dole, and who were afraid that if Obama did not get back into office, they would lose their so-called “benefits”.

So, as the night closes in, just as it happened with the middle of the night passage of Obamacare, Americans will be powerless to prevent what will happen this evening.

And, it will be the result of a generation of brats with no moral compass whatsoever, with no national pride, and no sense of the gifts which our Founding Fathers, through the grace of Almighty God, have bestowed upon them…the blessings which they have garnered, free of any exertion of their own, simply by being born in the greatest nation on God’s Green Earth.

We are witnessing a generation of self-centered spoiled brats, led by a self-centered spoiled brat, spoiling a sacred land, and doing their best to tarnish this Shining city Upon a Hill.

I for one, am sorry that Reverend Billy Graham had to live to see his prophetic words come to pass.

By the way, it is no coincidence that Obama is speaking on a day which is celebrated in Mexico as Revolution Day, their “4th of July”.

God Save the Union.

Until He Comes,

KJ
