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.

I’ve got a pen…and I’ve got a phone…

President Barack Obama predicts Congress will be busy this year debating a renewal of jobless benefits for the long-term unemployed and an immigration overhaul. But he says he wants his Cabinet also to focus on executive actions that do not require legislation.

“We are not just going to be waiting for legislation in order to make sure that we are providing Americans the kind of help that they need. I’ve got a pen and I’ve got a phone,” Obama said.

“And I can use that pen to sign executive orders and take executive actions … and I’ve got a phone that allows me to convene Americans from every walk of life,” Obama stated, according to Reuters.
He says he is “very pleased” that Congress has agreed on a $1 trillion budget measure and urges lawmakers to pass it promptly.

Calling for “all hands on deck” to assist the economy, President Barack Obama is urging his Cabinet to identify ways to keep his administration relevant to people struggling in the up-and-down recovery.

With two weeks left before delivering an economy-focused State of the Union address to Congress, Obama is picking up the pace of his jobs message and demonstrating how he can advance his economic agenda administratively and through his ability to coax action from important interest groups.

Please assure me that you are reading this stuff. What does he mean, “of his jobs message.” All we have ever heard and seen from this mental midget is a report ontimthumbo jobs, and of course his action of going against data and experts whilst reforming and/or disorganizing a welfare system used by preceding presidents and actually working.

“We’re not just going to be waiting for legislation in order to make sure that we’re providing Americans the kind of help they need. I’ve got a pen and I’ve got a phone,” Obama said Tuesday as he convened his first Cabinet meeting of the year. (In other words he is saying “my way or the highway” to Congress.)

In plain words this man is illustrating disrespect for Congress; the sooner Barack Obama is out of office is the sooner our job market will begin to turn around. Ask yourself a question or two: What has this conceited and egotistical person done with regarding the coal industry? (Over 67 percent have been laid off with no expectation of ever returning.)

We still wonder how (legally, or otherwise) how this arrogant person won his bid for re-election. This is another attempt to get people to look at the horror of politics; moreover, how stupid this country is in re-electing him.

This individual, Barack Obama, has to have the highest “father issues” ever rated by a public official. Again he is using his politics over people strategies that like ObamaCare, energy policies, and immigration reform simply does not think in terms of “what if” or until the end of his presidency.

What else could he possibly mean, “providing Americans the kind of help they need…”

Obama continued: “And I can use that pen to sign executive orders and take executive actions and administrative actions that move the ball forward in helping to make sure our kids are getting the best education possible. We need making sure that our businesses are getting the kind of support and help they need to grow and advance, to make sure that people are getting the skills that they need to get those jobs that our businesses are creating.”

We feel that Barack Obama should remove himself from trying to secure various remedies. Seriously look at the plans that have materialized since he took office.

FIVE QUICK READS YOU DON’T WANT TO MISS

 

FIVE QUICK READS YOU DON’T WANT TO MISS

So interesting was the seminar that we have not been this intellectually stimulated since our days at university. Today most of us here at TCT were treated to a conference given by experts in their respected fields of discipline – all of which agreed to the notion that – in their lifetimes they have not witnessed such a left-leaning liberal bias in the main-stream media.

One of the first examples they used was apparently from 60 Minutes aired this past Sunday night (September 23, 2012) where Barack Obama openly admitted that he accepted the notion of, “…a few more bumps in the road…” within the same reference as the terrorists attacks in Libya, Egypt, and other areas where an American Ambassador and two Navy Seals were murdered.

A lot of time was spent on this profane subject insofar as the incidents clearly lacked adequate support on the anniversary of 9_11_01; furthermore, when attention waned to the moment of President Obama making his presence on the television show The View rather than giving full attention to the president of Egypt, who just happens to be a member of the jihadist Muslim Brotherhood who are getting quite uppity about $1.6 billion dollars in military aid sent to them for free (same as 20 years ago).

Much of the focus was directly on the main-stream media who continues to bleed ink onto their front pages about anything that Romney could possibly do, whilst at the same time for what the president openly admitted to never reached a paper!

For Black America A Time For Choosing: Belief In The Democrat Party Or Belief In God’s Laws

The following line of stories were discretionately collected from around the Internet that we feel are worth the time and energy to read.
Democrats have had a war against African-Americans for 200 years. The Democrat Party’s most notable “Founding Father” was Aaron Burr a man who plotted with Democrat Andrew Jackson to steal the Louisiana Territories to break them up and make new slave states out of them.

James Polk a Democrat President actually traded in slaves while he was president and fired the permanent civil service staff so he could have his slaves wait on him in our White House. Through the years Democrats have picked up guns to maintain slavery and formed the Klu Klux Klan to keep freed slaves in virtual bondage after they were freed.

Health Insurance Premiums Surge Despite Obama’s Promise To Cut Them

Health insurance premiums have shot up by more than $3,000 per family in the past four years — despite Barack Obama’s 2008 campaign promise to reduce them by $2,500.
The cost of the average policy has risen by $3,065 since then-candidate Obama made his pledge, an Investor’s Business Daily survey reveals. They have gone up by $2,370 since he entered the White House in 2009.
“What’s more, premiums climbed faster in Obama’s four years than they did in the previous four under President Bush, the survey data show,” the Daily reports.

The newspaper says that Obama promised in February 2008, “We are going to work with you to lower your premiums by $2,500. We will not wait 20 years from now to do it, or 10 years from now to do it. We will do it by the end of my first term as president.” He made similar promises throughout the campaign. (Read more at News Max.)

Whose Side Is Barack Obama On?

If this video is seen by enough voters, it will do what the Romney Campaign has been unable to do — take down Barack Obama. Any rational American who sees this clip will not vote for Obama.


 

How by having an unclear separation of powers is the liberty of the people lost?

How by having an unclear separation of powers is the liberty of the people lost?

 

We are not in the position of telling people how they feel insofar as who are we to know what someone else may be living? Moreover, when we look at the certifiable travesties of life and then compare or contrast how people react to them, then we must endure our humanity and use empathy and hopefully feel for that person who may be suffering.

Much hullaballoo has been made about the recent boycott versus appreciation day for Chick-Fil-A; this is a response to a stimulus made by mayors of two different cities with the compilation of a string of personal abuses going on at the hands of our own government.

When it becomes common knowledge that critical intelligence leaks are coming from the White House there is a cause for shaky national security much the same as 15 million people crossing your borders with help and assistance from again, the White House.

It should not take anyone to long to figure out that the real abuse is in the form of squeezing the human rights out of those who stand up for and those who are Americans. Therefore how do you feel lately as your rights are being squandered, limited, or abused?

Invariably or so it seems that immediately we need to look at the symptom, identify it, then go about treating it to ensure that it will never happen again. Based on this model of diagnosis tracking, the symptoms appear to be manifest in an apathetic nation based on its economy; with sustained periods of unemployment, moreover, not being able to find a job people begin to look at those who are given over to “Stimulus packages” and call them the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act and go on about their day conspiring ways to increase more government spending. Okay one problem has been identified; how then do we prepare to treat it?

At this point folks – this is where we find the ugliest forms of human nature that could possibly be enacted by individuals or more precisely, an individual.

Our first thought was, we should ask ourselves what it is about having separation of powers that allegedly ensures good government and prevents tyranny.

The separation of powers helps to ensure good government at the same time it guards against tyranny. Independent in function but coordinated in the pursuit of justice, the three branches of government—legislative, executive, and judicial—must each have enough power to resist the encroachment of the others, and yet not so much that the liberty of the people is lost.

Unfortunately we need to ask our reader’s if this institutional design of separation is working. As for our input, No! We do not feel as though the independent branches of government are doing nearly enough to stop a particular branch of abusing its powers.

When you are feeling neglected or your government is not responding the way that it should – look around if only for an instant – and in most cases it will be either protection from the potential encroachments of the other branches, or in the House it very well could be other members of your party or another party creating factions within the same house. The Majority Leader of the Senate Senator Harry Reid comes to the forefront of our minds.

This institutional design allows the sovereign people to observe and to know which branch is responsible for which actions in order to hold each to account. The sense of mutual responsibility built into the separation of powers is a reflection of the moral and civic responsibility all Americans share.

As for us, the sooner that Americans begin to take hold – firmly of their rights, responsibilities, and giving back – indeed more than we are taking into account, the shaky and undetermined future of America rests with those who involve themselves in self-government.

However, and as we all know this is not happening within the United States government now or certainly for the last almost four years. The executive branch will not even attempt to work with the legislative branch and vice-versa. The dear president feels that what he had to do to get his universal health care — Obamacare — passed into law…well, we’d all feel pretty guilty about the way it was done. And insofar as the legislative houses want to desperately cut spending everything they’re sent to the executive has been denied or vetoed.

This is where it gets very interesting – the potential encroachments of the other branches, or in the House it very well could be other members of your party or another party creating factions within the same house, mentioned earlier becomes clearly recognizable.

We find ourselves lately torn by how President Barak Obama has placed himself above the law and has decided to begin making new ones that are more conducive to his style. In a nutshell the problem is he does not have the authority to do these things without having the law-makers – Congress – those representatives who are supposed to putting the need of their constituents above this type of rubbish. It only gets worse from here…

So much more tomorrow…

 

The Way in which it was done…

We are positive that anyone who frequents this site is well aware of just how many articles we’ve produced – not placing judgment about Obamacare – more so we are appalled at the way the bill was passed by the House of Representatives, and then the ever-present wheeling and dealing that resembled the Chicago mob, and even the pettiest back-door deal making in the Senate although, we were promised the exact opposite would occur.

I vividly remember how America was being portrayed by the international media whilst wondering to what further lengths the government in charge would go to in order to see this smoldering excrement of a bill get passed.

In the House deals and negotiations were made with The United States Council of Catholic Bishops, which in short once the support of Catholics was given, then the unwritten bill began taking on new clauses regarding state paid abortions and especially the violations of the First Amendment’s Freedom of Religion statute. At any rate we started long ago trying to keep tabs on just how and why our country – and virtually every sector that comprises her – were faced with some kind of grief. The following is just a brief synopsis to date:

PROMISE: Candidate Obama Pledged All Health Care Negotiations Would Be Televised On C-SPAN. OBAMA: “I’m going to have all the negotiations around a big table. We’ll have doctors and nurses and hospital administrators. Insurance companies, drug companies – they’ll get a seat at the table … But what we will do is, we’ll have the negotiations televised on C-SPAN, so that people can see who is making arguments on behalf of their constituents, and who are making arguments on behalf of the drug companies or the insurance companies.” (For further reading click here.)

Furthermore, as reported by msmbc.msn.com the then candidate Barack Obama spewed some ridiculous figures about who was to receive various monies for their own state coffers. Moreover, this deal making process provides an additional $8.5 billion over the next decade for 11 states and the District of Columbia to help them pay for the more generous Medicaid assistance they have been providing low-income residents. These states are Arizona, Delaware, Hawaii, Maine, Massachusetts, Minnesota, New York, Pennsylvania, Vermont, Washington and Wisconsin.

BROKEN: PolitiFact Rates This Promise Broken: “Obama promised — repeatedly — an end to closed-door negotiations and complete openness for the health care talks. But he hasn’t delivered. Instead of open talks of [sic] C-SPAN, we’ve gotten more of the same — talks behind closed doors at the White House and Congress. We might revisit this promise if there’s a dramatic change, but we see nothing to indicate anything has changed. We rate this Promise Broken.” (For further reading click here.)

Obama And His Advisers Brokered “Behind The Scenes” Deals To Pass Health Care Reform. “In pursuing his proposed overhaul of the health care system, President Obama has consistently presented himself as aloof from the legislative fray, merely offering broad principles. Prominent among them is the creation of a strong, government-run insurance plan to compete with private insurers and press for lower costs. Behind the scenes, however, Mr. Obama and his advisers have been quite active, sometimes negotiating deals with a degree of cold-eyed political realism potentially at odds with the president’s rhetoric.” (David D. Kirkpatrick, “Obama Is Taking An Active Role In Talks On Health Care Plan,” The New York Times, 8/13/09)

Health Industry Lobbyists Negotiated With Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus (D-MT) as well as The Obama Administration “In Tandem.” “Hospital industry lobbyists, speaking on condition of anonymity for fear of alienating the White House, say they negotiated their $155 billion in concessions with Mr. Baucus and the administration in tandem. House staff members were present, including for at least one White House meeting, but their role was peripheral, the lobbyists said. Several hospital lobbyists involved in the White House deals said it was understood as a condition of their support that the final legislation would not include a government-run health plan paying Medicare rates — generally 80 percent of private sector rates — or controlled by the secretary of health and human services.” (David D. Kirkpatrick, “Obama Is Taking An Active Role In Talks On Health Care Plan,” The New York Times, 8/13/09)

Obama’s Aides Were Present during the Deal Making Process To Pass Obamacare In The Congress: Obama tried to publicly distance himself from the deals, saying he wasn’t in the room when they were struck, even though some of his aides were. The president rankled Reid and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi by criticizing them for doing what generations of their predecessors have done: cut deals.” (Carrie Budoff Brown, “Obama Wants Side Deals Out Of Bill,” Politico, 3/10/10)

The Final Passage Of Obamacare Left In Place The Louisiana Purchase. “Retains $300 million in extra Medicaid aid for Louisiana, which had helped win support for the Senate health bill from Sen. Mary Landrieu, D-La. The state is still struggling to recover from Hurricane Katrina.” (“Cornhusker Kickback Gets The Boot In Health Bill,” The Associated Press, 3/18/10)

Retains $300 million in extra Medicaid aid for Louisiana, which had helped win support for the Senate health bill from Sen. Mary Landrieu, D-La. The state is still struggling to recover from Hurricane Katrina.

Keeps $100 million included in the Senate bill that is expected to go for a public hospital in Connecticut sought by Dodd, who is retiring. Preserves language won by Baucus permitting many of the 2,900 residents of Libby, Mont., to qualify for Medicare benefits. Some of them have asbestos-related diseases from a now-shuttered mine.

In addition, the pledge maintains a Senate-approved provision giving extra money for hospitals and doctors in North and South Dakota, Montana and Wyoming. (Click here for further reading.)

To help win the vote of Sen. Ben Nelson, D-Neb., the massive measure the Senate passed on Christmas Eve had included $100 million that only Nebraska would get in added federal Medicaid assistance.
Immediately mocked as the Cornhusker Kickback, critics called it the epitome of special Washington dealing, and even Nelson advocated ending his state’s special treatment. Under the changes announced at a later date, the Nebraska provision would be deleted and all states would get additional Medicaid help from Washington. (Please read on by clicking here.)

During this wheeling and dealing for seeing to it that his healthcare package was supported in the Senate,  the White House last week singled out projects from Montana and Connecticut as items President Barack Obama wanted removed. There was resistance, however, from two influential committee chairmen, Democratic Sens. Max Baucus of Montana and Christopher Dodd of Connecticut, and their projects have survived. Now seeing what has happened with the threat of this person and his gangland Chicago cronies being reelected, I still am overwhelming confused at how this mess of legislation made it under the purview of the United States Supreme Court.

The fixation on the environment…think of Extremism!

“We’ve got your six” is a statement that these days we hear so often, yet it is hard to find. Having its roots in Old Norse, Latin, and Greek, to include English, it appears that six runs very much a kin to sex therefore, every language seems to have a vested interest in the word.

Fighter pilots use the metaphor of sitting on the middle of a clock face to indicate the relative location of other aircraft. In other words, an enemy could be at 12 o’clock (straight ahead), at 3 o’clock (perpendicular to your path, on the right), at 9 o’clock (again perpendicular but on the left of you). So, your Six is what’s directly behind you, the most dangerous enemy location. Your backside, ass or arse. Cover your six means to protect yourself; especially a place of vulnerability.

A rather lofty opening that encompasses two matters we’d like to address. One is the fixation on the environment – or to be considered “Green” – at any rate those individuals who have good, bad, or indifferent degrees of consciousness about wetlands to various lizards, birds, frogs, and whatever. You know what we mean…extremists!

Of the second part we are now going to admit that the Republican Party has gone completely off the rails and have ostensibly lost their way. We are not sure if this is the most accurate metaphorical use of “lost their way” but for this writing, it serves to associate these candidates for the office of president in the forthcoming election are simply embarrassing themselves by acting like children.

Quite openly it has reached the level of absurdity. I for one am not a republican or democrat inasmuch as I’d rather not align myself with either of the two major political parties. Being independent allows for objectivity and keeping one from any political bias. 

Loyal to a fault, as well as conservative in my demeanor I am reasonably certain that I will never align myself with a political party because I just want who’s best for our country.

Having said that, I am wondering what Messrs. Romney and Gingrich are doing other than tearing each other to shreds and thereby the only winner as we see it here is – God forbid Barack Obama! So fella’s do us a solid by lying off of each other and get with the program – that is to defeat Obama!

Assisted by technological innovation and years of subsidies, the cost of wind and solar power has fallen sharply — so much so that the two industries say that they can sometimes deliver cleaner electricity at prices competitive with power made from fossil fuels. At the same time, wind and solar companies are telling Congress that they cannot be truly competitive and keep creating jobs without a few more years of government support.

Their efforts received a boost on Thursday from President Obama, who called for a package of tax credits for renewable power as part of a broader energy plan that he outlined while on a campaign swing through Nevada and Colorado.

But the lobbying by the wind and solar industries comes at a time when there is little enthusiasm for alternative-energy subsidies in Washington or the nation in general. And does anyone wonder why?

It is overwhelmingly obvious that the current President, Barack Obama, is seriously lacking in business what is referred to as the executive function.” According to Covey, Drucker, and Levine in business jargon the executive function is the capacity to plan, organize, and manage time and resources effectively. And we believe that Barack Obama will become that big “case study” that will become the neo-vogue research methodology offered in most of America’s top business schools, which show through illustration what NOT to do.

Every policy or mandate put forth by the Obama Administration regarding the environment has flopped; and that’s putting it mildly. This one person on a crusade to enact something, anything that will show change regardless of what it costs is pure insanity. As for the executive function…with Solydra was there adequate planning? Nope. How about organization, what? And the notion behind time management – let’s see within 38 days to less than one year they had to know about bankruptcy.

Finally, with a commander in chief as loony as Barack Obama, how could we be surprised at the same irresponsible acts going on within the Justice Department and ATF?

Hey! Time to wake up America!

There seems to be some difficulty with “doing the right thing…attribution is what blame is…not willing to fall on the sword”…and the entire notion of personal responsibility going on in Washington D.C. If we could indulge you for only a moment, we’ve got some issues on our minds that unless we get some real backing – or put our ostensible powers of persuasion together for you – hell let’s not mess around with fiat anything’s when in reality we should be making ourselves right with the Big Man…Upstairs.

And we hate like crazy to be pointing these idiosyncrasies out to you simply because we’d much rather be writing about all of the good that happens in our lives and how well America is doing.

But we are far past that when the U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, who legitimately is up to his eyeballs in this Fast & Furious operation doesn’t remember anything about it? In times not so far away, Presidents of the United States would simply request a written resignation by 0800 the next morning, if not sooner.

We are respecting the posture of the Congressional committee appointed to investigate the egregiousness of these crimes. Right now – it must be known for everyone to see and hear – that the original complaints for this operation came from those men who were in the fields, comparing notes, and like an explosion they found out that they were being set-up by other members – high ranking –perfumed Asst. Attorney Generals who have deliberately misrepresented the facts. 

There was a time in American history that when a president became under an investigation (during an election year!) then those around him through loyalty and fortitude would automatically stand-up as an honor to protect the president. Well that’s not happening here in this case; furthermore, we can’t even get the U.S. Attorney General to apologize to the Mexican authorities.

So what gives already? Many, many children, women, and men have been killed with the very weapons provided to them by ostensibly our Justice department as well as the Bureau of Alcohol, Firearms, and Tobacco, and Explosives (formerly ATF now who knows?). No excuses, no rubbish, no special rights or privileges whatsoever; if a person is implicated at all, including White House personnel, then let’s restore our nation to the “rule of law.”

Quick leap…since when does a sitting President enter into the House Chamber to rehash the same old tired rhetoric and when he’s finished goes into Rock Star Status of kissing congressional personnel, hugging and kissing members of the Supreme Court, and allowing for people to come seeking autographs? It was appalling!

These people in Washington behaved as they are – small, narrow-minded folks – that remain unable to see the true picture. And like it or not, President Obama is not the man. Say it, you’ll feel better about it and yourself! America, oh America how long do we have to play this game of words, ideologies, and begin discriminating against those who have worked the hard road only to be punished by paying more and more of it to a government that steals?

Just think…$560,000,000 to Solyndra; then think…only $400,000,000 to Indiana, Purdue University, and Ener1 for research and development for a vehicle battery. If these are examples of Obama’s hope and change then he has failed on both accounts. Please remember that 960,000,000 is close to 1 billion; yet, for that kind of spending – inappropriately all things considered on a bankrupt Solyndra, Ener1, and by the way, where is the accounting of the funds spent on the Recover and Reinvest Act more commonly known as the stimulus plan?
