I Know Reagan and Obama Ain’t No Reagan – Clearing the air about ‘amnesty’

Saturday, November 22, 2014 AD

Ignorant Liberals and Complicit Media Liken Obama to Reagan

Democrats and their media mouthpieces claim likeness between unconstitutional action by this sitting president who, contrary to law, contrary to public opinion, granted ‘amnesty’ to millions of illegal immigrants.

First of all, let’s be perfectly clear on the history. What happened in 1986 was not an unconstitutional decree, but a law passed by the Congress, signed by President Reagan.

Ronald Reagan recognized the legal limbo in which millions of Latino immigrants lived. The president made a case to Congress to craft law that would alleviate suffering for millions of people living among us while also setting up barriers to future unlawful border crossings.

Was it amnesty? Indeed it was, but the bill’s language was ‘legalization’, not ‘amnesty’.

President Ronald Reagan
“I believe in the idea of amnesty for those who have put down roots and lived here, even though sometime back they may have entered illegally.” – Ronald Reagan, 1984

1986 Immigration Reform and Control Act

“The Immigration Reform and Control Act was passed and signed into law on November 6, 1986. The purpose of this legislation was to amend, revise, and reform/re-assess the status of unauthorized immigrants set forth in the Immigration and Nationality Act. The content of this bill is overwhelming and is divided into many sections such as control of unauthorized immigration, legalization and reform of legal immigration. The focus of this précis will be on the legalization aspect of the bill.

“This bill gave unauthorized aliens the opportunity to apply and gain legal status if they met mandated requirements. The fate or status of all those who applied fell into the hands of “Designated Entities” and finally the U.S. Attorney General. Applicants had to prove that they lived and maintained a continuous physical presence in the U.S. since January 1st, 1982, possess a clean criminal record, and provide proof of registration within the Selective Service. Moreover, applicants had to meet minimal knowledge requirements in U.S. history, government and the English language or be pursuing a course of study approved by the Attorney General.

“This bill also outlined previsions for temporary residents’ travel, employment, false statements, numerical limitations, adjustments for status and treatment of applications by “Designated Entities”. Furthermore, after an applicant was assigned a legal status or deemed a temporary lawful resident, they were disqualified from receiving all forms of public welfare assistance for five years. The rules for applications and welfare assistance did not apply to Cuban or Haitian immigrants.” - Summary by Kurtis Mees

So, What’s the Difference Between Obama 2014 and Reagan 1986?

Very simply these two points:

  • Ronald Reagan did not DECREE amnesty. President Ronald Reagan signed into law a bill crafted by the Congress. President Reagan followed the Constitution to the letter.
  • Barack Obama made a dictatorial decree of blanket amnesty. As president, President Obama violated the Constitution.

Summary

President Reagan and I share(d) some things in common.

  • We two lived and worked among Latino immigrants, he in California, I in south Texas. So it was, we came to love and appreciate Latinos.
  • We two are former Democrats who became Republicans, due to the downward direction the Democrat party was taking the nation. He became a Republican in 1962, I in 1980.
  • We two understood that immigrants who “put down roots” in this country and successfully raised families and worked among us should be set on a path to citizenship.

President Ronald Reagan, unlike this sitting president, understood the wisdom of our Constitution and the prescribed process of lawmaking. In 1986 the 99th Congress consisted of 100 Senators (47 D’s, 53 R’s) and 435 Representatives in the House (253 D’s, 182 R’s).

The Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986 was passed by a BIPARTISAN Congress and signed into law by a Republican president.

Hypocrisy of the Moment (and hypocrisy of the left)

In May of 2008, Jorge Ramos of Univision interviewed candidate Barack Obama. Obama’s promise:

“I cannot guarantee that it is going to be in the first 100 days. But, what I can guarantee is that we will have in the first year an immigration bill that I strongly support and that I’m promoting. And I want to move that forward as quickly as possible.”

If you can’t believe what I write, can you believe what Barack Obama says?

I assume now you read what he said and you heard with your own ears his promise. So it is, my Democrat leftist friends, why did he not do what he promised?

The 111th Congress was totally controlled by his party. In the Senate, there were 57 D’s, 2 I’s who voted with the D’s and only 41 R’s. Democrats controlled the Senate. Over in the House, there were 255 D’s and only 179 R’s.

Candidate Barack Obama made two big promises: ObamaCare and Relief for Latino immigrant residents. He was the head of his party. He had total control of the Congress. He pushed through the Affordable Care Act (aka ObamaCare), but he did not fulfill his promise to Latino undocumented aliens living among us.

Why?

My opinion: He cared not a whit about illegal aliens living in ‘legal limbo’. This president has but one goal and that is the utter destruction of this republic that he sees as a colonial power (we are not). He hates all things ‘colonial’, even though he never lived under colonialism.

He has disarmed us by destroying our strategic nuclear arsenal to the point we are on a par with Russia. He makes secret deals with Muslims, most recently with the Ayatollah of Iran.

I pray God will open the eyes of our collective understanding that this ongoing immigration issue is nothing but a political ploy to further divide our people. A few Democrat lawmakers have awakened, but it’s probably too late.

The self-appointed Tyrant-in-Chief has been weakening our military, quadrupling our national debt, disarming us in the face of impending global war and effectively erased our borders.

What Is A Nation?

One dictionary says a nation is “a community of people composed of one or more nationalities and possessing a more or less defined territory and government“. Controlled borders define the territory.

A business dictionary says “the term ‘nation’ emphasizes a particular group of people, ‘country’ emphasizes the physical dimensions and boundaries of a geographical area, and ‘state’ a self-governing legal and political entity.

Are we a nation at risk of being dissolved? I don’t know. Will the United States of America go up in smoke? I can’t predict that, either. But, this I do know: our nation, our country is not mentioned in Biblical end-times prophecies.

In closing, I dismiss nonsensical liberal news media that likens Obama’s unconstitutional, unlawful “amnesty” decree with the 1986 law signed by a real president.

I know Ronald Reagan, and Barack Obama is no Reagan.

Creating Immigration ‘Law’ Out of Thin Air – The Peril of Executive Orders

17 November 2014 AD

los dreamersIs there cause for immigration reform? Adjustments, yes. Reform, no. Real immigration reform came about when all laws and policies affecting immigration were resolved into one law, the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) of 1952.

Lawmakers made an adjustment to the 1952 law by means of the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986 (IRCA) that legalized otherwise illegal immigrants. The law was designed to bring relief to illegal aliens residing within our borders and to deter further illegal immigration.

The INA and the IRCA were the product of a bipartisan Congress.

Read more about the INA and the IRCA: http://ow.ly/EpS8u

President Barack H. Obama says he cares about undocumented, illegal aliens. He cares about the offspring of illegal aliens – these offspring are known as “Dreamers”. Dreamers are caught within an limbo not of their choosing. These youngsters in most cases were not born here, but were brought by their parents. For all intents and purposes, they are American kids, 100% American all the way to the music they listen to, the clothes they wear and the language they speak. It is indeed time for an adjustment, but not “comprehensive immigration reform”.

I ask: Does President Obama truly care about Hispanic immigrants? Does he? If he truly cared about them he could have easily signed any number of laws favored by democrats the first two years of his administration when both houses of Congress were democrat controlled. But he didn’t. No, sir. He didn’t. He cared that much. So much he did NOTHING for them.

audacity of hope book coverWhat is Obama’s true perspective on Latin American immigrants? Is there any way to know for sure? Well, let’s consider his own words from his book, ‘The Audacity of Hope – Thoughts on Reclaiming the American Dream’.

I quote:

“There’s no denying that many blacks share the same anxieties as many whites about the wave of illegal immigration flooding our southern border. The number of immigrants added to the labor force every year is of a magnitude not seen in this country for over a century. If this huge influx of mostly low-skilled workers provides some benefits to the economy as a whole, it also threatens to depress further the wages of blue-collar Americans and put strains on our overburdened safety net.”

I invite you, my democrat friends, to hear the above words spoken from the mouth of your fearless leader, the author himself.

Between now and January 4, 2015, Barack Obama appears ready to unleash a torrent of unconstitutional executive orders, creating immigration law out of thin air. As a constitutional republic, his tyrannical executive orders are tantamount to corrupt governance, as immigrants experience in their home countries.

I have he audacity to say, we are in spiritual warfare. The only sure remedy for an attack by evil is for we the people to fall on our knees, repent of our sins and call on the name of El Shaddai, the Almighty God to save us.

In invite my Hispanic readers to acknowledge Obama’s scorn for Hispanics.

Obama “Direct Action” on Immigration – Republic or Monarchy?

5 points you should know - Univision Noticias http://ow.ly/Elyo6
5 points you should know – Univision Noticias http://ow.ly/Elyo6

Spanish-language news service Univision Noticias breathlessly asks “El presidente Barack Obama anunciará pronto una #AcciónEjecutiva para ayudar a millones de indocumentados pero no sabemos a cuántos beneficiará ni cuándo lo hará.”

Translation: “President Barack Obama will soon announce an #ExecutiveAction to help millions of undocumented immigrants, but we don’t know how many will benefit or when it will happen.”

By What Authority This #AcciónEjecutiva?

Article II, Section 1 says, “The executive Power shall be vested in a President of the United States of America.” Executive power means  the President of the United States of America has “the function or purpose of carrying plans, orders, laws, etc, into practical effect.

Article I, Section 1 says, “All legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States, which shall consist of a Senate and House of Representatives.” ‘All’ is another adjective that means, “the whole or full amount of or number of“.

Summarizing, the Constitution clearly states the Congress creates ALL law. The president is duty bound to execute laws created by Congress. No president has constitutional authority to create law out of thin air, not even when he styles his unconstitutional laws as ‘executive action’.

Immigration and Nationality Act – the Law Created by the Congress

The Immigration and Nationality Act, or INA, was created in 1952. Before the INA, a variety of statutes governed immigration law but were not organized in one location. The McCarran-Walter bill of 1952, Public Law No. 82-414, collected and codified many existing provisions and reorganized the structure of immigration law. The Act has been amended many times over the years, but is still the basic body of immigration law.U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services

The INA was a creation of a bipartisan 82nd Congress. Republicans held majority in the Senate, Democrats in the House. Speaker Sam Rayburn was a prominent Texas Democrat.

Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986 (IRCA)

Public Law 99-603 (Act of 11/6/86), which was passed in order to control and deter illegal immigration to the United States. Its major provisions stipulate legalization of undocumented aliens who had been continuously unlawfully present since 1982, legalization of certain agricultural workers, sanctions for employers who knowingly hire undocumented workers, and increased enforcement at U.S. borders. – U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services

In 1986, when the IRCA was made law, it was Republican President Ronald Reagan who signed and executed this law. The 99th Congress consisted of a Republican controlled Senate and a Democrat controlled House. IRCA was passed by a bipartisan Congress and signed by a Republican president.

A Pen and a Telephone – Tyranny At Work

If by now it’s not obvious this sitting president is an outlaw, then this truth will never penetrate your reality. “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. And, I can use that pen to sign executive orders and take executive actions.

Are reforms to the INA in order? Most assuredly and it is the role of Congress to reform, amend, this law. Immigration is not “broken”. We have lawful processes for immigrants to enter for a variety of reasons: work, study, medical care, diplomatic mission or citizenship. From time to time, adjustments are necessary to better serve the common good. Dictator Obama’s pen and phone routine cannot serve the common good for several reasons, chiefly his threatened action would be UNLAWFUL and worthy of impeachment. Creation of and changes to laws is the purview of elected representatives in Congress.

Communicate with your three lawmakers to tell them to oppose Obama’s unconstitutional behavior.

Dangerous Times

an imperial presidency2014 election victories for Republicans across the nation were clarion calls to reverse tyrannical actions by this sitting president and a democrat senate majority. Despite this very clear statement by fed up voters, American citizens, Barack Hussein Obama intends to defy the Constitution and implement his dictatorial will over the objections of our citizens.

Between now and January 4, 2015, we are a nation at great risk as this leftist president forges his personal agenda on our nation.

 

God, save America.

Islam v. Christianity – Defining Differences, Only One Possible Outcome

Saturdayislam christianity
November 15, 2014 AD

Shabbat Shalom

Reformer Martin Luther believed the Turks (Muslims) were sent by God to punish Christians for idolatry and false religion. Our president has openly stated, both verbally and in his book, that he favors and stands with Muslims against Christians.

bho islamistCould it be God has placed Barack Obama at the head of our government in order to awaken a sleeping church? Perhaps. But, I have good news.

Across the fruited plain church leaders awaken to do battle with the spirit of Anti-Christ that is even now silencing Christians in the classroom and public square. One by one, church leaders and pastors take a stand against legally-enforced atheism cum Islam. And, I have even more good news.

Jesus Christ is revealing himself to devout Muslims in dreams visions and through Christian witness. Truly, the only way anyone becomes a true believer in Jesus Christ is through personal revelation, just as it was for the Apostle Peter (ref. Matthew 16:13-18).

Jews, Muslims and pagans of all sorts become believers in Jesus Christ through a personal revelation from Father God. As the heat on the church, the collective Body of Christ, rises and Islam appears to be winning, you will see something absolutely astonishing, amazing, unbelievable, as waves of Muslims suddenly bend the knee to Jesus and submit to his Lordship.

Here is a story of one such supernatural encounter one devout Muslim experienced with the Living and True God, El Shaddai:

Imminently Unqualified – Obama’s Resume & 2014 Elections

October 25, 2014 – Saturday morning sit-down and dig out the facts: History of Barack and Michelle Obama’s law practices. It’s not a pretty picture.

Back in 2010, one year into the Obama administration, Doug Ross wrote a blog titled: “To be (a lawyer) or not to be…” [Source: http://ow.ly/DkdOv ]

Excerpt from Doug’s blog:

“I spent some time with the highest tenured faculty member at Chicago Law a few months back, and he did not have many nice things to say about “Barry.” Obama applied for a position as an adjunct and wasn’t even considered. A few weeks later the law school got a phone call from the Board of Trustees telling them to find him an office, put him on the payroll, and give him a class to teach. The Board told him he didn’t have to be a member of the faculty, but they needed to give him a temporary position. He was never a professor and was hardly an adjunct.

The other professors hated him because he was lazy, unqualified, never attended any of the faculty meetings, and it was clear that the position was nothing more than a political stepping stool. According to my professor friend, he had the lowest intellectual capacity in the building. He also doubted whether he was legitimately an editor on the Harvard Law Review, because if he was, he would be the first and only editor of an Ivy League law review to never be published while in school (publication is or was a requirement).”

Note: ‘political stepping stool’ and ‘lowest intellectual capacity in the building’

Lazy‘ – that explains the 200 rounds of golf

Unqualified‘ – that explains his trampling of the Constitution, his refusal to follow the rule of law

Never attended any of the faculty meetings‘ – that explains his absence from countless security briefings

political stepping stool‘ – validates claims by Percy Sutton, lawyer to Malcolm X, that it was Dr. Khalid Al-Mansour who funneled Saudi money to financially support Barack Obama [Source: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MIVO8MZYXo8 ]

lowest intellectual capacity in the building‘ – explains how Valerie Jarrett serves as “Obama’s spine” and, I believe, Obama’s brain. [Source: http://ow.ly/DkfZf ]

Let’s be very clear about whom we are dealing with. When Bill Clinton was in the White House, Bill Clinton called the shots. Unlike Bill Clinton, Barack Obama lacks intellectual capacity ‘to call the shots’. Obama is but a mere puppet controlled by an unseen puppeteer.

Fascists who hate all white people, hate Christ of the cross and hate Jews have control of this president.

2014 votes are possibly the most important in the history of our republic. Let’s do all we can to get friends, neighbors, family, co-workers, and fellow church members to the polls.

Obama Administration Slow to Defend Jews and Christians – God Is Our True Source of Peace

dr sarah ahmedDr. Sarah Ahmed reports, “What’s happening now to the Christians…is genocide…what’s happening is what happened 200 years ago to the Jews.”

She further reports the horror, how ISIS is “shooting the kids…and people. They are lying them on the ground” then ISIS runs a tractor over them.

ISIS, aka al Qaeda, aka Muslim Brotherhood, is covering Iraq in darkness. Left unchecked, all Muslim dominated lands from the West Coast of Africa to the Far East will come under a dreadful new caliphate.

Muslims, Jews and Christians have lived together for nearly 2,000 years in the Middle East, but an evil force that controls these murderous thugs has only one goal: to eradicate all People of the Book (POB) – Christians and Jews.

Obama’s not-so-behind-the-scenes nation-building effort in Syria was to supply arms and ammunition to Syrian rebels. Backfire. Most of those arms and ammo went to the people now known as ISIS.

There is no possibility a true statesman will come forward so long as Obama and Kerry have the tiller of the ship of state. But, we can call on the One who holds the hearts of kings in the palm of His hand – The Living God, El Shaddai Adonai.

No political party can help stop the advance of this evil caliphate, but God can turn everything around and do so suddenly.

I invite you to join me in praying for the peace of Jerusalem. Let’s implore The Lord of Lords to pour out His spirit over the people of the Middle East, that He would reveal Himself in dreams and visions.

Let’s Not Haggle Over Hagel – Just Say NO!

Sen. Chuck Hagel with President Obama in Israel

Obama wants Hagel as Sec. of Defense. So what’s the big deal?

So he has offshore bank accounts and who-knows-what business interests. So what? So he opposes Israel. So what?

Shouldn’t this president get the type of people he wants to be in his Cabinet? Well, yes and no. You see we have this little Constitutional issue of accountability.

Eleven times we find the word “consent” in the Constitution. Consent is the operative word in the scheme of checks and balances. Let’s look where it appears, sixth in order, in Article II, Section 2. The president appoints officers “…with the Advice and Consent of the Senate…”

CNN, the Washington Post and other liberal propaganda ministeries of the Obama administration tout Chuck as a friend of Israel. They say his past comments on the historic homeland of the Jews have been taken out of context. Really?

Let’s look back over our shoulder to former Sen. Chuck Hagel’s 2008 biography in which he stated the Balfour Declaration of 1919 promised a homeland for Jews AND Arabs – this is factually just not so. The Balfour Declaration declares only “the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people”. His book is highly critical of Israel, while highly sympathetic toward Muslims and acutely inaccurate with respect to the facts of history.

What can you do? Contact your two U.S. Senators, first of all – I provide easy links to their webforms below. I also urge you to contact Senators Carl Levin (D) and James Inhofe (R), majority and minority chairs of the Senate committee reviewing Chuck Hagel’s qualifications for the office of Secretary of Defense. Find links to these two below, as well.

Simply state: “I oppose the nomination of Sen. Chuck Hagel to the office of Secretary of Defense. His true bias against Israel is a matter of record in his biography.”
