President Obama 10 days before

coc_2It took former President Obama 10 days from leaving the White House before he spoke out against President Trump’s order to temporarily ban people from seven predominately Muslim countries.

The statement was from a spokesman, and it did not attack Trump directly. Rather it appealed to protesters.

“President Obama is heartened by the level of engagement taking place in communities around the country,” Kevin Lewis, a spokesman for the former president, said in a statement. “Citizens exercising their constitutional right to assemble, organize and have their voices heard by their elected officials is exactly what we expect to see when American values are at stake.”

It is overly easy to tell that this is Democrat Party writing. Leveling the details: Barack Obama is “heartened by the level of engagement” around the nation. Here is where this gets just a little bullish: “Citizens exercising their constitutional right to assemble, organize and have their voices…see when American values are at stake.”     CcmKujIWEAAScEQ

As for me, this was written for the child-like mind insofar as it reeks of how democrats are constantly changing the wording, the truth, lying, and prone to changing a subject whenever they are wrong. Example: What Obama and this individual are doing to “American values” is simply incorrect. He conveniently leaves out the right to peaceably assemble, moreover, to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

I was taught that “to petition” openly means that anyone assembling needs to have a signed permit or petition listing where, when, how, and why the “redress of grievances” would be taking place. Indeed back in the 1970s, any self-respecting protester would apply for a petition first.

There is a debate on how to approach a Trump attack. There is fear that if Obama comes out too early against Trump it could lessen the effectiveness of the message. His team reportedly does not want Obama to be the face of the anti-Trump protests.

“I wouldn’t be opposed if he spoke out,” Rep. Ted Lieu, D-Calif., told Politico. “I just don’t know what effect it would be.” If any! Nothing quite like a person who is largely responsible for the continued heartened by the level of engagement of Ferguson, Missouri, and all the other places that Obama inspired racial animus.

He continued, “In hindsight, I believe it was wrong for Barack Obama to normalize Donald Trump,” he said.

LiarsPolls show Obama left the office both popular and trusted. (What! You must be joking!)He had appeared more cautious about diluting his influence by quickly second-guessing Trump. Doing so could make it easier for Trump to dismiss critiques as predictable partisan nitpicking. And becoming the face of Trump’s opposition could make it harder for the next generation of Democratic leaders to emerge.

Obama said nothing Monday when Trump fired his former appointee Sally Yates, who was serving as acting attorney general. He also won’t opine on Trump’s announcement of a Supreme Court nominee, former White House aides in touch with Obama said. This is sympathetic. Yates should have been fired. Obama should have been impeached.

Obama loyalists said the expressions of opposition aren’t part of an organized campaign. They reported being energized by a series of group text messages, Facebook groups and email chains in which some of the thousands of one-time Obama staffers are sharing their dismay. Then do us all a favor and quit.

What is so hard about allowing the elected President do his job? We all know that it is petty and very, very Democratic Party nonsense that is causing the gridlock, better still, the Monster Truck pile up on the beltway.

Has Anyone even taken into Consideration..?

Has Anyone even taken into Consideration..?

King What it is that I am referring to is the inadvertent (we hope) mistake of reenactment of the peculiar institution that although was prevalent in the Southern portion of the USA, nonetheless of reparations, welfare reform after reform, making societal changes, and as ugly as it is — has anyone seen the new proposal document released by the Black Lives Matter movement?

I do hope that nobody reading this article assumes for an instant that the colonists as well as the slave traders who virtually made and installed the peculiar institution could have found any humanitarian reason for it. Furthermore, the comment above about “and ugly as it was” has absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with the Black Lives Matter movements’ proposal document.

I would hope to think that every American — regardless of color, race, gender or societal standing would have already read the appropriate particulars (like anything in the form of Black history) to understand that what was done to that peculiar institution was Liarsabhorrently wrong.

Much the way I feel that Barack Obama’s handling of welfare reform — yes, regardless of data with regards to education and the Head Start disaster, he nonetheless over appropriated the amount and easiness for anyone to collect food stamps.

Which ties into the thesis of this article perfectly. Looking back through recorded time and history most blacks were brought to this country from Africa. Of course, this process lasted until those places where colonies of blacks were either being held, bought and sold or were being held captive in, were finally of age to bring them to the Southern plantations.

So inasmuch as illegal immigrants are concerned which the Pew Charitable Trust believes is holding around 11.8 million people; however, for the sake of an acute examination we believe it is fair to count the number of refugees and those who are seeking asylum from other nations as well are but the prologue to the next peculiar institution?

If one were to look at the depressed wages, or the lack of driver’s licenses, or utilizing proper documentation for the effective showing who, from where and what they are doing in this country.

scalesAt its utmost frailty, it does look as though the Democrat Party is enhancing a different prospective of the  peculiar institution. The biggest difference that is occurring at the present time — and some may debate and/or argue the difference of time, place and infringements done to the individuals really is an awkward point. However, looking at the true consideration as it now stands — we ask for your consideration and brain power:

  • It is ostensibly certain that illegal aliens will find some kind of government housing.
  • As well as some kind of work; it is of paramount importance that one realizes:
  • That there will always be a program (entitlement?) that will enhance someone to come:
  • Albeit, health care, unemployment, welfare, job corps, or aid to families with dependents:
  • In daycare, pregnancy leaves, new-born status care and the hope of citizenship
  • The Democrat Party will always have or find a way to accommodate anyone they can use.

Therefore, if anyone cares to read the first page of The Contemplative Thinker, there exist at least ten articles that will prove the point we are making.

A twice-deported undocumented immigrant fights to stay with his family in the U.S.

A twice-deported undocumented immigrant fights to stay with his family in the U.S.

2eagle Angel Farias’ wife, two children and five siblings were born here in the United States. His mother and two other siblings are naturalized citizens. Angel came here in 1985 at age 7.

Like many undocumented immigrants, Angel’s family is a hodge-podge of those who have papers and those who don’t. And even Obama’s proposed Executive Order wouldn’t change his status: Angel has been deported twice.

Both times, he walked across the Sonoran desert with a backpack of food and water so that he could return to his family. Just a bit more illegal behavior that supports that Mr. Farias is not the kind of immigrant that the U.S. is interested in. After first deportation Mr. Farias is supposed to be suspended for ten (10) years on re-entering the U.S.A.

Angel’s family migrated from Michoacán to Washington’s Yakima Valley, where he and his siblings often skipped school to help their parents harvest cherries and asparagus. After 30 years in Yakima, Angel was able to start his own business as a house painter. He talks and eats like an American. His son speaks better English than Spanish. Yakima is all he’s ever known.

But U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents came and found him. The last time was in 2014. He appealed his deportation, so he spent 14 months in the Northwest Detention Center in Tacoma, where he led a hunger strike and spent weeks in solitary confinement.

His detention impacted the Farias family’s fortunes drastically. Angel was the undocumented breadwinner for a family of American citizens (by default). While he was away, they lost their house to foreclosure, and their credit was ruined. Unable to pay bills, Angel’s wife struggled day-to-day to put food on the table.

By the time he was released on bond, Angel’s father had passed away and his wife had been diagnosed with colon cancer.

Many undocumented immigrants are like Farias – they’ve been in the country for decades, have U.S.-born children but are barred from any path to legal status.

Angel’s first deportation order was for a misdemeanor arrest on charges that were later dropped. The next two were for returning to the U.S. illegally.

Angel’s history bars him from obtaining family visas and, while he has relatives in Mexico with ties to violent crime, it also makes it highly unlikely he’ll be granted asylum here.

His life provides a glimpse on the emotional and financial impact that deportations and detentions can have on one American family.

No! My heart is not crying for Mr. Farias or any member of his family. His wife, five siblings and two children were born American citizens. Hey Congress — it’s time to get real with the Citizenship Clause in the 14th Amendment!

Moreover, we find it very difficult to believe that someone here since 1985 would be having difficulty finding a way to at least be granted Green card status.

¡Adios America!

¡Adios America!

thHFWQI5ZLThis is the name of Ann Coulter’s latest New York Times best-seller which believe it or not all of Ms. Coulter’s books have been national and international must reads. Ms. Coulter has done it again, only with this offering she really pours out the reasons — as to why in just about all instances people are believing what they are consuming from the mainstream media in our nation.

I have more reasons than I care to acknowledge as to why her unparalleled gift with the pen is so enthralling to me. You can always just visit The Contemplative Thinker and see why I am so thrilled to see her writing talents, wit, and brain at that site.               th8U3U2963

Ann Coulter writes with illumination. She is one of the most respected people on this planet. Her unique education, speaking skills and the uncanny ability to foster respect puts her in a remarkable plausibility structure.

To this end I have had the wherewithal to consider myself one of the most learned people I know vis-a-vie illegal immigration. Until I read Ms. Coulter’s ¡Adios America!, where as open as I can be she has drawn her line in the sand regarding the future of this nation unless we do act on it now.

Reform immigration and Visa Statutes

Reform immigration and Visa Statutes

ignorance_1_resized

The San Bernardino shooters — Tashfeen Malik and her husband Syed Farook — emailed for several weeks before deciding to meet each other for the first time, according to Malik’s immigration file, portions of which were released today by the House Judiciary Committee.

Given the overall amount of terroristic attacks in this nation, how long and when is our government going to do something about this constant and reckless disregard of factual information?

The House Judiciary Committee investigates whether Malik’s visa was issued improperly. Chairman Bob Goodlatte says immigration officials did not do enough to screen Malik’s application and alleges that the passport stamps on Malik’s Saudi visa don’t prove she and Farook were in Saudi Arabia at the same time.

Malik, who was from Pakistan but had lived in Saudi Arabia, came to the U.S. last summer on a “fiancé” visa and later obtained a Green Card, U.S. officials have said. Malik married Farook, an American of Pakistani descent, in August 2014 and the couple had a baby six months before the Dec. 2 massacre that killed 14. Both died in a shootout with police afterwards.

dhs sealJust revealing this little portion of the released documents and information that is well-known to a majority of Americans — this entire notion of Malik, came to the U.S. last summer on a “fiancé” visa and later obtained a Green Card. This has set up a series of red flags that cannot be ignored by the following agencies: Department of Homeland Security, (DHS) United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement, (USCIS) always the Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosive Devices (ATF), there are far more agencies but what does it matter ($$) if a person can obtain these credentials so easily.

Allow me to ask a question: How many of us were aware of a “Fiancé” visa when the term itself leads one to believe that these people were not married!

Please be advised that this writer has written about the costs of Visa lotteries (giveaways), and to be completely within the law, partners of same-sex marriage people are lined up and ready to get their papers, the same with illegal aliens, and any refugee or asylum seekers the world over.

Please if anyone from the named agencies happen to be reading, let’s cut to the chase and make you folks as safe as possible.

Greta Van Susteren inspires with “Why don’t we try something new?”

Greta Van Susteren inspires with “Why don’t we try something new?”

Whilst reading last evening I make it a point to happen across other influential person’s writings and I must admit that Greta van Susteren’s article on her site, posted onto Face Book did precisely what the doctor ordered.

eagle4Greta writes, “The nation is – or at least it seems so to me – terribly divided. Everyone has picked a group – whether it be by gender or ethnic background, etc. – and placed a stake in the ground. When this happens, people divide, not unite. This is taking sides, not joining together and you know what happens when people just take sides.”

Continuing she says, “Why don’t we go back to the old concept of America being a melting pot and all of us being Americans with first emphasis being on common goals.

I wrote at pretty good length an (hopefully) inspiring response that having sat on it for about 18 hours I would like to share with you and again, hopefully, get some response.

I do not think Greta is in error whatsoever with her feelings. The fact has it that the American mind-set has changed and primarily so with visitors, students, as well as illegal immigrants just making plans to sojourn to America for a spell.

0930-cittest_thumbnail_288_croppedFor the last 150 years or so, to be an immigrant with citizenship aspirations one needed to aspire to assimilate in every American way possible. Let’s say that 100 or more years ago, acquiring written and spoken English skills was not a problem. At all —

One specific issue is that people come to America now – not for the sake of the Nation – yet rather for the life styles and standards of living for their children and relatives that supersede their own. You see, it is not for the Nation that they come, rather, it is for what they can take from the country.

And I will point a finger of blame here, or what is mentioned as attribution. Years ago our wretched Congress as well as other branches within the federal government thought it overly wise to liberalize America. By this what I mean is the unadulterated inclusion of every sojourner’s wants and needs. Although fact has it that these people did not earn their keep.

As long as special interest groups AND American rights and privileges could be bestowed upon these people,flageag9 what on earth was different? Therefore the mentality of these individuals grabbed those special interest groups. Then it is logical that sojourner’s would also lobby or protest congressional officials and in most cases – those who had the least power – special interests within unions, universities, colleges, and school districts in order to make them feel as though they did.

I find that there is a critical piece of this situation missing. Several actually… Pride in yourself as well as country; achieving the American Way or The Great American Dream, takes giving it all away…meaning give one’s self away for the great Nation that one is making.

This my friends is where America is suffering. Some or most say it is coming from the White House. Others say it is from a bunch of idealistic congress people. One must remember that when everyone assimilates, then there is NOT groups or otherwise divide.

Deferred Action, Immigration, Citizenship, at Whose Cost..?

Deferred Action, Immigration, Citizenship, at Whose Cost..?

map-and-compass_1ere is a question for you that I would love to get some feedback on — all together, with me? Great! Ever since our esteemed Emperor Obama decided on his own, no Congress, no real advisors, basically just special interest groups and what they aspire to do with what they have either borrowed, stolen, or committed some crime in order to get, the all hallowed purse.

As for me, I am just disgusted over the entire mess; especially when it concerns the little children that hurriedly rushed the border last autumn. 

These children can be offered to be part of the Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents program or DACA. I will not try and speak for you, but, what little was covered by the mainstream media — in addition to the festivities moving spritely in Switzerland on a deal that is a slam dunk for Iran.

On a recent Thursday evening, immigrants from Trinidad, Ghana and Haiti gathered at the Brooklyn Public Library’s Central branch to bone up on American history.

“I want you to name seven of the 13 British colonies,” instructor Miguel Angeles told his class, sitting around a large table in a sunny, third-floor boardroom overlooking Grand Army Plaza.

“We talked about this last week. Does anyone know?

The adult students were preparing for the civics test that new Americans must pass in order to become a U.S. citizen. During the naturalization interview, a United States Citizenship and Information Services officer picks 10 questions from a list of 100 — and applicants need to get six of them right.

“I really didn’t feel ready to do it,” said Shaliza Mohammed, 53, who left Trinidad for Ridgewood, Queens 27 years ago. The class is helping, she said.

Last fall, the Brooklyn Public Library began offering free citizenship courses like the one Mohammed attends. And in October the library also started hosting two Board of Immigration Appeals-accredited Immigrant Justice Corp fellows, recent college graduates who help with forms and advice once a week at several different branches.

“We were looking for ways to engage our communities in more robust ways, and more meaningful ways,” said Nicholas Higgins, director of library1n-2-weboutreach services in the library’s 60-branch system. The library secured a grant from USCIS and applied to be one of 17 citywide host organizations with the Immigrant Justice Corp fellows.

“I think one of the main focuses of our fellowship is to make sure that people have access to quality immigration services, because I’ve seen so many clients who say, ‘I paid $7,000 to X and they told me they would get me a green card. And I never heard from them again and they changed their phone number,’” said Fayette, a recent Brown University graduate from Boston.

While Brooklyn has launched the most recent initiative, the Queens Library and New York Public Library also offer immigrant services — from free English classes to help applying for the U.S. Department of State’s diversity visa lottery, which randomly gives green cards to people from countries with historically low rates of immigration to the U.S. Library branches around the city serve as enrollment centers for the city’s new Municipal ID.

Libraries can become trusted resources to help newcomers assimilate — as long as immigrants realize they are there. Pardon me, please…pardon me just a moment, please. Are all of your readers grasping what is being put forth here? Assimilation? Allow me to be the first one to let you know that if a person came to this Nation 27 perhaps even 30 years ago can’t pass, then why all the hoopla?

A recent national study found that just 60% of Latino immigrants had visited a library or bookmobile, compared to 83% of U.S.-born Latinos. Those who had, however, were among the most appreciative of what libraries offer and were more likely than other groups to say that the closing of a library in their community would have a major impact on their family, according to Pew Research Center research.

The first graduate to successfully pass her interview was Nohomi Yamazaki, a Japanese immigrant who now lives in Prospect-Lefferts Gardens.
