ACTION CALL: STOP OBAMA’S AMNESTY AND STRENGTHEN IMMIGRATION LAWS

Look up, call, and email your senators: http://www.senate.gov/general/contact_information/senators_cfm.cfm (or call 202-224-3121 – the Capitol Switchboard – and ask for your senators)

Here are talking points:

  • Please tell your senator to vote YES on Vitter amendments #849 and #850 to the Budget Resolution. These amendments would express the sense of Congress to end the outdated practice of Birthright Citizenship and to defund Pres. Obama’s 2014 unconstitutional amnesties.
  • Please tell your senator to vote NO on Hatch amendment #646 that would instruct Congress to increase the number of foreign tech workers.
  • Please tell your senator to vote YES on Grassley amendments #960 and #958 that instructs Congress to pass legislation that makes E-Verify mandatory and protects American workers before companies can petition for H-1B visas.

Happy Birthday, Obamacare!

aca birthdayIt’s time to bake a cake and stick five candles in it and celebrate the fifth birthday of Obamacare! Wait a minute. On second thought, you might not want to do that. After all, assuming that you currently do have health insurance and you’re not one of the nearly three million Americans who lost their plans, chances are that your government-approved plan won’t cover minor injuries like burning yourself, tripping and falling while carrying the cake in a darkened room or having your butt mistaken for the donkey’s by a blindfolded child, assuming you’re prone to playing Pin The Tail On The Donkey. (By the way, I understand that’s not a very popular game with the likes of Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid…although I know many Americans would love to play if those two played the roles of the donkeys.) Besides, even if you have a plan, you might not be able to afford treatment as deductibles tend to range from $3,000 to $5,000 for individuals and from $6,000 to $10,500 for families. Plus, Michelle Obama wouldn’t be happy with us eating cake, so we’d best pull out some kale and watch a low-fat, low-carb, gluten-free, smoke-free candle video on YouTube.
But don’t be down about all this! After all, a birthday is a cause for celebration and besides this train wreck of a health care system (It’s ok; everybody likes trains!), the Obama administration fulfilled one major promise by bringing us Hope and Change. So many of us just Hope that Obama and his allies will stop trying to ‘help’ us before they end up ‘helping’ us into either the poor house or the grave and everyday, as Obama tries to be even more ‘helpful’, we find that these government programs are leaving us with little more than a little change in our pockets. So I suppose that’s one promise Barack Obama has kept.
Now, we should probably take a minute to reflect back on the past five years of Obamacare. It was a hard struggle just to get the bill passed in the first place. After all, not a single Republican in either the House or the Senate deigned to vote for it. Apparently, those bigoted, elitist, rich Republicans are too good to vote for a bill like Obamacare for such petty reasons as party rivalry, the fact that it has the potential to crush business and disenfranchise millions of Americans from their health plans while expanding the Medicaid rolls and putting even more strain on an already overstressed system and the loss of our individual liberties, whether it’s business owners being told that their freedom of religion has to be put on the back burner for the ‘greater good’ or citizens being forced by government mandate to buy something whether they want it or not. I mean, where do those evil Republicans get off trying to look out for our economy and our liberties?!
Thank God for those wonderful Democrats who stood their ground and didn’t even hesitate to vote for a bill they hadn’t even read. After all, like Nancy Pelosi said, we’d all find out what was in it by passing it. If we had more publishing houses that approved projects under those criteria, we’d have so many books of equal quality to Hillary Clinton’s last book and that’d be great for bookstores. After all, that way, they’d never have to worry about going through the hassle of ordering new inventory because their shelves would always be stocked with books that no one has any desire to read and inconvenience anyone by having to sell them.
Now we have the sort of change that the President has been striving for. Just look at some of the changes:
From January to September of 2014, 8.38 million more people gained coverage! Of course, only  893,000 of those signed onto private plans while 7.49 million signed onto Medicaid. That means that 89% of the coverage increase was due to expanding Medicaid. Yes, that puts a lot more stress on the system, but there’s a simple solution: We’ll just raise more taxes. After all, everyone’s just fine paying more taxes. That way, the government is better able to take care of us…much like a nanny.
On the taxes front, the government is already way ahead of us. Obamacare has already lead to 18 new or increased taxes, that will draw $771 billion from Americans from 2013-2022.
Of course, paying your taxes may prove to be a challenge, but challenges build character, so that’s ok. You see, 800,000 people on Obamacare health plans were sent the wrong tax information from the federal government. Don’t worry though; most of those corrected forms have now been sent out…except for about 80,000, whose corrected forms have still not come out.
But things could be worse. Around 7.5 million people on Obamacare are receiving subsidies because the only way that the Affordable Care Act is affordable for so many is if the government that mandates it also helps pay for it. So, if those subsidies were to go away, there’d be 7.5 millions Americans suddenly without coverage again…in addition to the roughly three million who already lost coverage before…and then those poor unfortunate souls will have to be fined money they can’t afford to pay because they don’t have insurance they can’t afford to pay for while gaining no benefit by paying those fines other than providing more funds for the government.
So, everybody take a little time to sing Happy Birthday to Obamacare, quit worrying so much about losing those pesky little individual freedoms that this country was built on, eat your kale chips and blow out the candles on your computer screen.

Time to chide Republicans who BETRAYED us and funded Obama’s executive amnesty

It is imperative that you contact Republican senators and representatives and their “leaders,” Mitch Mcconnell and John Boehner, who betrayed conservatives (people with common sense) and funded President Obama’s executive amnesty. Tell them to abide by conservative principles, you know what they did, you’re watching, and you’ll vote based on their actions. All their names and contact info is provided below. Please share this information widely so we can expose these deceivers. They must know that voters are watching them and will publicize their deception. The fact is that House Speaker John Boehner, and later Senate Majority Leader Mitch Mcconnell, planned the whole “defunding” of Obama’s executive amnesty to fail from the start. A key promise made by Republicans during campaigning for the November 4, 2014 elections was to stop executive amnesty for at least 5 million illegals. From Breitbart:

Exclusive-Priebus Rallies Base: GOP Will Stop Obama’s ‘Un-American’ Amnesty if We Win Senate

Reince Priebus, the chairman of the Republican National Committee (RNC), says it’s “un-American” for President Barack Obama to consider implementing an executive amnesty for millions of illegal aliens across the country.

“It’s unconstitutional, illegal, and we don’t support it,” Priebus replied when a Tea Party activist asked him about the president’s plans for an executive amnesty on a conference call hosted by TheTeaParty.net on Monday evening.

“I don’t support it. It is wrong,” Priebus said. “It is un-American for a president to try and do such a thing. I want to make it clear: There is no part of me, there is not a molecule in my body that agrees with the president on executive amnesty.” …

By attaching defunding provisions to a massive $39.7 billion Department of Homeland Security appropriations bill, Republicans gave Democrats the political ammunition to cry fowl — screaming along the lines of “You’d sacrifice the security of the American people over some extreme right-wing amendment?” These Democrats and their Republican collaborators “forgot” the fact that executive amnesty is unconstitutional, illegal, and was blocked by a federal court. It gets worse. A very prominent Republican is deliberately trying to tear apart his own party:

… Rep. Peter T. King, one of the Republicans most critical of some in his own party, called the hard-liners “self-righteous and delusional.” …

It gets even worse according to the Senate Conservatives Fund:

… A political group with close ties to the House Republican leadership just launched new TV ads attacking three conservative congressmen for refusing to fund President Obama’s illegal executive amnesty. …

Why this betrayal by the GOP? Republicans took the Senate, strengthened their hold on the House, took a good number of state houses, and won an amazing number of governorships, but voters weren’t solely endorsing the GOP — not by a long-shot. Voters were more concentrated on repudiating President Obama’s policies and those of his out-of-control “liberal” establishment. The GOP had a mandate to oppose Obama, and poll after poll after poll shows Americans oppose amnesty for illegals (see here and here), yet they’re already squandering their political capital. They’re afraid. They think they need to “compromise” and be “moderate,” but all they’ll accomplish is splitting the GOP and/or guaranteeing they’ll lose the next election.

To be fair, there was some good news, from the Senate Conservatives Fund:

… A majority of Republicans in the House and Senate voted against their leaders and opposed funding for executive amnesty.

In the House, 167 Republicans (68%) opposed it, and in the Senate, 31 Republicans (57%) opposed it. It’s a reversal from December when a majority of Republicans supported the cromnibus spending bill that also funded amnesty.

This is a big shift and it would not have happened without all of the petitions signed and calls made by people like you across the country.

It’s a clear rebuke of the decision by Senator McConnell and Speaker Boehner to surrender the power of the purse….

Note that I highlighted the point about people engaging in the political process: It does work.

It would help to thank those Republicans who stood for conservative principles.

New Mexico – Bringing the power home: One click sends an email to 13 legislators calling for a convention of states under Article V of the U.S. Constitution

Click here to send an email to 13 New Mexico legislators calling for a convention of states under Article V of the U.S. Constitution. The resolution’s text explains why we need to reign in the power of the federal government:

    WHEREAS, the Founders of our Constitution empowered State Legislators to be guardians of liberty against future abuses of power by the federal government; and

    WHEREAS, the federal government has created a crushing national debt through improper and imprudent spending; and

    WHEREAS, the federal government has invaded the legitimate roles of the states through the manipulative process of federal mandates, most of which are unfunded to a great extent; and

    WHEREAS, the federal government has ceased to live under a proper interpretation of the Constitution of the United States; and

    WHEREAS, it is the solemn duty of the States to protect the liberty of our people, particularly for the generations to come, by preparing Amendments to the Constitution of the United States through a Convention of the States under Article V to place clear restraints on these and related abuses of power;

    NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF NEW MEXICO that the legislature of New Mexico hereby applies to Congress, under the provisions of Article V of the Constitution of the United States, for the calling of a convention of the states limited to proposing amendments to the Constitution of the United States that impose fiscal restraints on the federal government, limit the power and jurisdiction of the federal government and limit the terms of office for its officials and for Members of Congress; and

    BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the New Mexico secretary of state is hereby directed to transmit copies of this application to the President and Secretary of the United States Senate and to the Speaker and Clerk of the United States House of Representatives, and copies to the members of the Senate and House of Representatives from this State; also to transmit copies to the presiding officers of each of the legislative houses in the several States, requesting their cooperation; and

    BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that this application constitute a continuing application in accordance with Article V of the Constitution of the United States until the legislatures of at least two-thirds of the several states have made applications on the same subject.

SUPPORT ISRAEL: Watch Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu Address a Joint Meeting of Congress

SUPPORT ISRAEL: Watch Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu address a joint meeting of Congress. An extremist Islamist Iran’s going nuclear — and its proxies are causing mayhem in the Middle East. President Obama is doing nothing to stop this madness. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is doing something — and has the guts and morality to warn the American people of the danger Iran presents to the world — unlike an impotent Obama. Watch now: http://www.c-span.org/video/?324609-2/awaiting-israeli-prime-minister-benjamin-netanyahu-address-congress

Note that:

Despite months of relentless attacks coming from President Obama, his White House, and his sycophants in the mainstream media, here in America Benjamin Netanyahu has seen a boost in his favorability rating to where the Israeli Prime Minister is now in much better shape than our own President.

According to the latest Gallup poll, 45% of Americans view Netanyahu favorably while only 24% view him unfavorably. Since 2012, Netanyahu’s favorability rating has jumped a full 10 points, while his unfavorable rating has risen an insignificant 1%.

The latest favorability ratings for Obama come from a Feb 23 Economist/YouGov poll that shows Obama tied with Netanyahu in favorability with 45%, but with an unfavorable rating of more than double that of Netanyahu’s at 50%. This is a poll of 1000 adults. Gallup polled 837 adults.

As far as job approval, according to the most recent Gallup poll Obama sits at 44% approve, 51% disapprove. …
