This “immigration bill” (why not call it what it is a so-called attempt to deal with ILLEGAL immigration) not just an immigration plan – why do they leave the WORD illegal out – supposedly has some key components:
1.) Penalties. 2.) Back to the end of the line. 3.) Illegals cannot get gov’t handouts (food stamps, etc). I thought that for all these years they weren’t eligible, weren’t receiving them an/or they never did in the first place… 4.) An E-Verify system.

Rand Paul maps quick path to balanced budget

Sen. Rand Paul formally rolled out his 2014 budget blueprint on Friday, offering a combination of tax and spending proposals that he said would balance the federal budget in five years without raising taxes.
The freshman Kentucky Republican’s plan reshapes entitlement programs, abolishes four federal agencies and overhauls the federal tax code by establishing a 17-percent flat tax and eliminating taxes on capital gains, dividends and savings.
America stop cowering under your bed. Stop believing in your spirit that there is nothing you can do to save your country and lives. You feel weak. You feel poor and old. You are a nobody. What can you do? Together, with God’s help we can do EVERYTHING. “I can do ALL THINGS through Christ who strengthens me.” -Phil: 4:13
Our country has been under constant attack from within by the Obama regime surrounded by his progressive America haters. His handlers, ‘the new world order crowd’ and ‘radical Islam’ have attacked and crushed much of our freedom already, per the plan from long ago.
Forced Obama care coverage is really ‘access to our accounts’ and a bold tool to start seizing our funds and assets. It is much like the national theft of accounts in Cyprus making international news this week and causing widespread panic.
Rand Paul’s anti-interventionism… “There is a fear among John McCain, Lindsey Graham, and others who favor an interventionist foreign policy…They’re worried that Rand Paul’s diatribe on drones really means that Rand Paul wants to bring the military home and not use it unless we’re attacked, He doesn’t like it being used in an intervention. This is what they fear. “

Rand Paul, the junior senator from Kentucky, filibustered the Senate vote on confirming John Brennan to be CIA director, because he was against the drone war in general and the targeted assassination of American citizens in the US in particular.
He failed. Brennan became CIA director. But his filibuster was called “historic” by Antiwar.com’s Justin Raimondo, who quotes a talk show host at length:
“There is a fear among John McCain, Lindsey Graham, and others who favor an interventionist foreign policy. Think of the neocons. Think of going into Iraq and not just securing Iraq, but building a democracy.
Nation building, if you will. Think of the outbreak of the Arab Spring and the people on our side who thought, ‘Wow, this is wonderful. This is the outbreak of American democracy,’ when it wasn’t.
It was the exact opposite. Rand Paul, they’re asking themselves, is he his father’s Ron Paul son or is he on his own here?
They’re worried that Rand Paul’s diatribe on drones really means that Rand Paul wants to bring the military home and not use it unless we’re attacked, He doesn’t like it being used in an intervention. This is what they fear. And as he succeeds in making a connection with the America people, they’re worried, the neocons are worried that they are being undermined by this.”That was from none other than Rush Limbaugh, who used to call critics of American foreign policy “appeasement”, “anti-American”, “cheese-eating surrender monkey“.

TEL AVIV – Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., may have dropped a bombshell in an interview with Fox News in which he stated that murdered U.S Ambassador Christopher Stevens was in Benghazi to keep weapons caches from falling into the hands of terrorists.
Until now, no official explanation for Stevens deployment to Libya has acknowledged any such activity.

What Rand Paul Got Right

Last week, freshman Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) held an old-fashioned filibuster against the nomination of John Brennan to head the CIA. Paul’s stated reason for taking to the floor and talking for 13 hours was that the Obama administration wouldn’t give him a straight answer on the question of whether the president can unilaterally order the killing of American citizens on American soil with “lethal force, such as a drone strike … and without trial.”
In other words, if an American member of al-Qaeda is sitting at a Starbucks, can the president sic one of his death-dealing robots on him?
For many of us, Rand Paul’s filibuster was a surreal moment in time, beckoning back to better days when Mr. Smith Goes to Washington was considered a masterpiece of film because it embodied the values of our nation.
Today, “violence porn” films like Django Unchained are considered the top of the heap because they, sadly, embody our corrupt and violent society.“Old Bull” Republicans like John McCain and Lindsey Graham thought Rand Paul’s filibuster was stupid and irrelevant.
That it was ridiculous to think that Barack Hussein Obama, who has from almost Day One of his presidency spurned the rule of law—often blathering about “if Congress won’t act, I will”—would drop a hellfire missile on an American sitting in a cafe.But this wasn’t some manufactured issue, as the Left is famous for.

ELEANOR CLIFT: I’m with John McCain and Lindsey Graham, who basically said this was over the top and creating a sense that the government is really just waiting for this opportunity to drop a drone on you. But, I’ll grant you the point. The ACLU put out a statement siding with Rand Paul and this is where the left and the right do meet.
There are genuine questions about the drones and he did ask them. But he took it to a dimension which really does raise questions about the — I want to say this gracefully, so maybe I better not say it at all. It raises questions about, you know, what he’s up to. It’s like he’s trying to stir a revolt against the U.S. government.

I asked the president, can you kill an American on American soil, it should have been an easy answer. It’s an easy question. It should have been a resounding, an unequivocal, “No.” The president’s response? He hasn’t killed anyone yet. — Rand Paul
I do not believe that question deserves an answer. — Lindsey Graham
Mr. Holder’s letter answers Mr. Rand’s question, “Does the president have the authority to use a weaponized drone to kill Americans not engaged in combat on U.S. soil. The answer to that question is ‘no.’”– Jay Carney

Whatever his ideological leanings, surely Shakespeare would have raised an eyebrow at the political scene Wednesday, if only for the content it would have stirred in his creative mind. Though Rand Paul spearheaded an epic 13-hour filibuster, he didn’t fill that time alone. Fourteen other Senators total offered him a respite along with comradely, thought-provoking questions, and humor, to boot.
Some comments, or technically questions, were in part to pass the time, but many managed to raise spirits by quoting movies, musicians, famous authors, or regular supporters. Sens. Cruz, Scott, and Flake are all freshmen.
Traditionally, their first speech on the Senate floor would have been on something of personal importance, but instead they helped Rand further his filibuster. Since cell phones are banned on the floor, Cruz offered to read series of Tweets so Paul could see what was going on in the outside world — the “Twitterverse” — encouraging Paul (and supporters).
Kentucky Senator Rand Paul did something on Wednesday that hasn’t happened in the Republican Party since Obama won the White House in 2008. Senator Paul stood up for what he believed and defended the Constitution during an old fashioned filibuster against what has become known to most conservatives as a quasi-tyrannical socialist Obama regime.
Senator Paul’s filibuster was an attempt to set a narrative within the context of the constitutionality of the Obama regimes domestic drone policy.

Rand PaulThe big news of the day seems to be the aftermath of the filibuster held for 13 hours by Senator Rand Paul. He should need no introduction, as his father is former Representative Ron Paul. He shares some of his father’s extreme libertarian ideology, but not all. If nothing else, it seems he is more than willing to ask the questions of government that many of our politicians are not willing to ask. That’s why he began the old-school talking filibuster in the first place. He asked a question of Attorney General Eric Holder and not being satisfied with Holder’s quibbling of an answer, took matters into his own hands.
The illegal immigration invasion has been ongoing for decades. All efforts to shut the door on unrestricted entry are “all hat no cattle”. The notion that it is impossible to secure the territorial borderlines is an insult to every native born citizen.
The dirty policy that is not much of a secret is that the establishment wants an influx of low wageworkers that drives down the cost of labor. The consistent pattern of domestic de-industrialization is a core objective of globalism.

There are experts in the field who suggest President Obama already may have taken action that, essentially, has ended the controversy.

If you don’t know who Ann Barnhardt is, you really need to google her name to see the wide spectrum of attitudes of the those who consider her a champion and those who assert she is deranged.
The Economy Is Going To Implode Pt.8 of 8
Conservatives in blogland pounced on Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s statment taking responsibility for the security of the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, saying it looks like a bid to shield President Barack Obamafrom the continuing fallout from the deadly attack.
******WARNING: THIS IS NOT FOR THE TIMID!******
Anne Barnhardt calls for EPIC ECONMIC CRASH LIKELY IN LESS THAN 12 MONTHS:
“…Have you people never read the Bible? Why don’t you crack open the Bible and start reading?…”
CLICK HERE TO LISTEN
Ann Barnhardt says states should secede from the U.S.A. such as an Oklahoma/Texas scenario and I believe she is probably going to see this happen should the epic crisis happen according to her projections. I’m posting this again because I believe it’s important.

I demand to be arrested for blasphemy. Now. Posted by Ann Barnhardt – September 14, AD 2012 1:12 PM MST The Obama regime is going after the people who made the cheesy mohammed movie that the musloids are blaming the riots on.
They are “suggesting” that YouTube “review” the content of the clip of the movie they have posted, and are also now looking to jail one of the filmmakers. In addition, the Obama propaganda arm operating as the L.A. Times has posted pictures and explicit location descriptions of the home of one of the filmmakers, clearly an effort to intimidate the filmmakers and to pass tactical intel to the muslim brotherhood – which is why you always publicize your personal info right off the bat like I did.
In doing so you claim a massive tactical advantage and utterly deprive the enemy of his MAIN WEAPON, which is intimidation and fear. Ladies and gentlemen, what you are witnessing is the establishment of the Sharia, specifically “islamic blasphemy” laws, right here in what used to be called the United States of America.
Well, I have a little something to say about all of this.
I have done what many consider to be the most hard-core, serious koran burning to date. I bookmarked the filthy damn thing with strips of raw bacon, and then I burned the satanic screed page by page after reading the demonic filth therein contained.
What many of you may not know is that very soon after my koran burning went viral, a group of Coptic Christians in Egypt translated it – every word – subtitled it in Arabic, and then posted that version on YouTube. How humbling. Please understand that there is a very good chance that some of the Copts involved in that effort have since been killed in the Christian genocide that has been raging in Egypt, and all throughout the musloid-infected world since early 2011.
While my original version on my YouTube channel has just under 200,000 views as of this writing, that is a pittance compared to the Arabic subtitled version, posted on the YouTube Channel “AnnThankYou”, which has 665,000 views. Most of those views are of course in Egypt, the Middle East and North Africa. Therefore, if this nation is now under the Sharia, I DEMAND to be arrested for not only “blasphemy” but also as an accessory to murder as recommended by both Mike Barnicle and Donny Deutsch on MSNBC earlier this week. THAT CITATION HERE.
Any time you bastards want to get real about this, I’m your flippin’ huckleberry. Come and get me, and then WATCH WHAT HAPPENS.
This was originally penned and posted on January 24, AD 2011. I have to re-post it every so often when I start getting a bunch of emails from people telling me how I just HAVE to run for office.Um, no.Nopety, nopety, NO.Funny story.

It has been a century since Woodrow Wilson reportedly opined that young boys should grow up to be as unlike their fathers as possible. Whether he worded it exactly that way, our 28th president surely pursued the goal, both as educator and as politician.
Not that his era was the first to witness a challenge to parents’ prerogative. However, the early 20th century “progressive movement” (of which Wilson was a part) did offer up the most open manifestation of that attitude in American official circles up to that moment in history.
Military widows join forces to raise awareness of non-hostile military deaths.

Colonel Stahlman was vocal in his disappointment with the manner in which the entire Haditha matter was handled by the Marine Corps hierarchy and recommended that charges against Grayson be dropped. The recommendation was rejected by prosecutors and Grayson eventually was cleared of all charges in June 2008.

You know he’s getting desperate.
(NYT) — For nearly three years, Republicans have attacked Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. on national security and civil rights issues. For months, they have criticized him over a gun-trafficking investigation gone awry, with dozens of leaders calling for his resignation. Last week, more than 75 members of Congress co-sponsored a House resolution expressing “no confidence” in his leadership. [...]
Within days after my article on due process and presumption of innocence, the U.S. Senate voted to empower the U.S. military to apprehend and detain indefinitely anyone in America, based on the whim of the soldier or military commander, and it will probably eventually include any armed agent of government including local police. As Jacob Hornberger noted, this new provision will codify the U.S. as just another one of many dictatorships throughout world history.
Lawmakers May Try to Block Automatic Spending Cuts If Supercommittee Fails to Reach Deal

WASHINGTON (AP) – Failure by Congress’ debt-cutting supercommittee to recommend $1.2 trillion in savings by Wednesday is supposed to automatically trigger spending cuts in the same amount to accomplish that job. But the same legislators who concocted that budgetary booby trap just four months ago could end up spending the 2012 election year and beyond battling over defusing it.
Welcome to Boston, Mr. Rumsfeld. You Are Under Arrest
Welcome to Boston, Mr. Rumsfeld. You Are Under Arrest:
The 7th Circuit made the ruling in the case of two American contractors who were tortured by the US military in Iraq after uncovering a smuggling ring within an Iraqi security company. The company was under contract to the Department of Defense. The company was assisting Iraqi insurgent groups in the “mass acquisition” of American weapons. The ruling comes as Rumsfeld begins his book tour with a visit to Boston on Monday, September 26, and as new, uncensored photos of Abu Ghraib spark fresh outrage across Internet. Awareness is growing that Bush-era crimes went far beyond mere waterboarding.
Torture Room, Abu Ghraib
Republican Senator Lindsey Graham told reporters in 2004 of photos withheld by the Defense Department from Abu Ghraib, “The American public needs to understand, we’re talking about rape and murder here… We’re not just talking about giving people a humiliating experience.
We’re talking about rape and murder and some very serious charges.” And journalist Seymour Hersh says: “boys were sodomized with the cameras rolling. And the worst above all of that is the soundtrack of the boys shrieking that your government has.”…………..
Congress Pushing McConnell Obama-as-Dictator Plan Behind the Scenes?| The Post & Email:
“It’s as if all of our elected representatives in the House and Senate have either lost their collectivist minds or are being paid–under the table–more than We-the-People would have ever dreamt. Senator McConnell–as Senators John McCain, Lindsey Graham, Lugar, etc.–has long acted and voted as a totalitarian ruler. Therefore he, all of the Marxist-Leninist Democrats (which means ALL Democrats) and RINOs (Democrat plants in the Republican Party) apparently decided long ago that they would go through a Kabuki-styled dance pretense and then turn over all power pertaining to the USA economy to Dictator-in-Chief Obama.
The rumors that Boehner had been meeting in secret with Obama (against the American people) on a “Plan C” to combine the House plan and the Senate’s ideas for a dictatorship now appear to be accurate. Again, Mr. Limbaugh was correct.”

That difficulty in succinctly describing the intellectual framework for Obama’s approach to U.S. foreign policy and national security issues has long bedeviled anyone trying to impute a concrete agenda from Obama’s soaring pronouncements about supporting democracy and fostering international human rights.
Republicans, especially the neo-conservatives who gave enthusiastic support for the U.S. invasion of Iraq, have sought to paint Obama’s nuanced approach as fundamentally weak. “We used to relish leading the free world.

Republicans Move to Block Ron Paul from Monetary Policy Subcommittee Chair onepixel Republicans Move to Block Ron Paul from Monetary Policy Subcommittee Chair paulbon “Five GOP leadership aides, speaking anonymously because a decision isn’t final, say incoming House Speaker John Boehner has discussed ways to prevent Paul from becoming chairman or to keep him on a tight leash if he does,” reports Bloomberg.
“If Boehner, who will help determine who gets to chair subcommittees as early as Dec. 8, rejects Paul, he may have to contend with thousands of grassroots supporters and dozens of younger lawmakers who see Paul as a hero.”Boehner and the establishment Republicans rode to victory last month on the shoulders of the Tea Party movement. Prior to the election, Tea Party activists in Maine, Colorado, and Utah focused on abolishing the Federal Reserve.
Some predicted that if Republicans were to sweep the House they would become much more confrontational with the Federal Reserve.
“The popularity of Tea Party candidates in U.S. elections could spell renewed efforts to curtail the power and independence of the Federal Reserve, which has been cast as an emblem of big government overreach,” Reuters reported in late October.
Many establishment Republicans agree with senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina who insists the Tea Party and its vision of less government has no long-term vision or prospects for political viability.Instead of dismantling the Federal Reserve, establishment Republicans have called for reforming the private bankster cartel masquerading as a government agency supposedly answerable to the American people.
On Tuesday, Sen. Bob Corker, R-Tenn. and Rep. Mike Pence, R-Ind. called for Congress to change the Fed’s “dual mandate” now requiring it to promote both price stability and full employment and instead focus on keeping inflation low and not worrying about reducing unemployment.“It is time that we work to clarify the mandate of the Federal Reserve,” said Corker, a member of the Senate Finance Committee, in a statement announcing his support for the change. “Providing our central bank with a clear and explicit focus on keeping inflation low will serve America better than the broader mandate approach we have today,” the National Journal reports.

Graham: Obama taking over ‘most of society’Sen. Lindsey Graham R-S.C. accused President Obama of “turning his agenda over to the most liberal people in the House,” and pointed out that few Democrats are campaigning on the Democratic health-care bill.
“Most Democrats in swing states are running against Nancy Pelosi and against the Obama takeover of most of society,” Graham said.The South Carolina Republican predicted that there will be more bipartisanship in 2011, particularly on extending the Bush-era tax cuts. He defended his friend, Sen. John McCain R-Ariz., who took the unusual step of harshly denouncing a Senate colleague — Sen. Barbara Boxer D-Calif. — at a recent campaign rally for Carly Fiorina. “I think John is reacting to an agenda that he thinks has really been overreaching,” Graham said.
“It is different. The Senate is different now.”Former Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean and GOP strategist Liz Cheney got into a heated discussion about President Obama’s recent accusations that the U.S. Chamber of Commerce is funding attack ads with money from overseas donors.
“It’s not fair and it’s an abomination and a shame that he’s attempting to chill first amendment rights,” Cheney said.

THE PETRAEUS DIARY
by Dr. W.R. Marshall, Ph.D
September 15, 2007
During the weeks that led up General David Petraeus‘ Surge Report he kept a diary. We’ve recently secured a copy of these writings from an inside source at the White House. What appear today are exclusive excerpts from his diary made during the week before his appearance on the Hill. (In the spirit of full disclosure, we did pay for the diary, although no cash was exchanged. It cost us two boxes of Milk Bones and a Bin Laden chew toy.)
Sept 4 Tuesday
3:30pm: Just got another call from the C in C. You’d think he’d have something better to do than call me twenty times a day, but I guess wandering around the White House all day gives him a lot of free time. He told me for the hundredth time that I’m a “good guy.” There was an embarrassing silence after that, until I told him he was good guy too. I’m pretty sure Larry Craig is gay—not that there’s anything wrong with that. 10:30pm: C in C called and asked me what kind of dog I like. He said he likes Cocker Spaniels and giggled when he said “cocker.”
Sept 5 Wednesday
6:30am: Just got off the phone with Cheney—is it me, or does he look the same as he did during Bush I? He said he was sending over new pages, and then started yelling at someone in the room about closing the curtains before sunrise. When he came back on the phone he wanted assurances that I wouldn’t fold under the pressure of questioning. Who does he think I am, a Democrat? I told his draft dodging candy ass not to worry about it. He cackled—that was a little scary.
11:30am: The new rugs arrived from that Dora Market I set up at Baghdad. They were cheap at twice the price—because it’s not my money. Funny thing is, that cracker Lindsey Graham thinks he got a good deal on the rugs when he was there. How’d he put it, “I jewed them A-rabs down.” I guess he didn’t know about the $2500 we slip the vendors weekly to keep their shops open. Potemkin village my ass, money talks, b.s. walks.
