CNN reporting: House clears DHS bill for Obama
By a vote of 257-167, the House approved funding for the Department of Homeland Security that left Obama’s amnesty executive actions in place for illegal aliens.
Herrera Beutler voted Nay.
An Independent Conservative
Unbelievable the gall of someone knowingly in the country illegally and expecting free benefits. How bold that they feel comfortable enough to produce a video ad of their expectations.
Our country is nearly $17 Trillion in debt, millions of citizens remain unemployed, U-6 Unemployment sitting at 14.3% and lawbreakers think they are entitled to freebies.
Not surprising, California, probably the single worse off state in the country, rapidly heading into bankruptcy, losing citizens and businesses daily is set to approve free healthcare for illegal aliens.
Tuition assistance for Veterans in California has been cut and unpaid medical bills just for illegal aliens in California has reached $1.25 billion per year, but California liberals, bleeding heart liberals are poised to give illegal aliens even more benefits.

Once again we find ourselves preparing to have our ears tickled by Barack Obama as he speaks before both houses of congress and the nation to give the annual ‘State of the Union’ speech where he undoubtedly will speak of how well the country is doing under his tutelage and how well off citizens are, whether we actually are or not.
He is expected to cover “his plans to create jobs, tackle gun violence, and pass comprehensive immigration reform” as Nancy Pelosi, unarguably one of the worst Speakers of the House in our history, famously known for stating “we have to pass the bill so you can find out what is in it” regarding Obama’s signature ‘Obamacare’ legislation, a direct contradiction of Obama’s campaign promise of a transparent government.
She also makes mention in this same email seeking support for Obama of this “ambitious agenda.”
“Obama said the [immigration] overhaul must provide a ‘pathway to citizenship’ for the more than 11 million undocumented immigrants in the U.S., and that if Congress does not act ‘in a timely fashion’ he will propose a bill ‘and insist that they vote on it right away’.” CNN Report, January 29, 2013
Apparently feeling he is more of a King now than a public servant, Barack Obama is not directing what Congress ‘must’ do and at his ‘insistence.’ In this case, he is demanding a repeat of the failed effort to curtail illegal immigration tried back in 1986.
Rewarding illegal activity not only does not work, it actually draws more illegal activity, evidenced by the words spoken by New York Democratic Representative Charles Schumer from a June 1989 New York Times article 1986 AMNESTY LAW IS SEEN AS FAILING TO SLOW ALIEN TIDE.
As Capitol Hill heats up in regards to the ATF gun-running scandal, Fast and Furious, a failed operation where thousands of guns were illegally sent into the hands of Mexico’s drug lords, costing over 300 Mexican lives and the death of one U.S. Border Patrol Officer, Attorney General Eric Holder has been much less that cooperative when it comes to admitting his and the Obama Administrations role in the scandal or in supplying subpoenaed documents to Congress.
Barack Obama compounded the situation recently by invoking “Executive Privilege,” and raising more than a few eyebrows across the nation.
“Lying to Congress is a crime. We have every right to see documents to say, ‘did you know, when did you know, what did you know,’ including even the president,” says Rep. Darrell Issa, (R-Ca.), chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. Issa adds, “There cannot be executive privilege over criminal cover-up or cover-up of crime.”
By all indication, Obama & Holder’s backs are up against the wall as more is discovered on this obvious cover-up, leading even foreign press to begin comparing it to the 1973 Watergate scandal that brought about the resignation in disgrace of then Republican President, Richard Nixon.
With the invoking of ‘Executive Privilege” looking like it is backfiring, what else would we expect this “post-racial” administration and Democrats to do but begin playing the race card to deflect attention away from what may be criminal activities by the Obama Administration.
June 15, 2012, not exactly a “day that will live in infamy,” but an ignominious day just the same as Barack Obama, apparently believing he is a King or Dictator and not an elected temporary leader, took upon himself to completely ignore the will of the American people and Congress by declaring certain illegal aliens under the age of 30 will no longer be deported.
That citizens have been opposed and congress has voted against such moves towards amnesty have been completely ignored as Obama stated,
“This is not amnesty. This is not immunity. This is not a path to citizenship. It’s not a permanent fix.”
It isn’t a “fix” at all and contrary to what he says, it is indeed amnesty and immunity. What else could it be but amnesty and immunity?
Democrats pulled this nonsense back in 1986 when Republican Ronald Reagan was president, blaming the failure on him and not accepting any responsibility themselves, even though they wrote it and passed it as Democrats held majorities in both the House and Senate.
Expected to lessen illegal immigration, it had the opposite effect as now others saw that our laws mean nothing and there would be no enforcement and eventually, if they waited it out, they too would be declared immune to our laws.
For all of the bleeding hearts who keep insisting how much we need illegal aliens in America and they do the work that American won’t do, a special news report from Indiana’s WTHR 13 News might not sit well with you.
The video report below is of a whistle blower & tax preparer who is revealing just how many Billions of our dollars are being sent to illegal aliens for nieces and nephews they are claiming as dependents in order to receive thousands of tax dollars refunded under the Child Tax Credit.
One small hitch, those nieces and nephews are not even in our country, but sitting down in Mexico.
WTHR 13 News Special Report, Loophole Costs Billions
Saturday, Dec. 17, 2011, Illegal Aliens held a peaceful rally in Portland, Oregon protesting the outsourcing of American Jobs.
Perhaps these Illegal Aliens never heard of NAFTA?
Perhaps too, if they held similar rallies in their home countries, they could remain there?
The Congressional Medal of Honor is America’s highest award for bravery and few receive it, even less that is still alive. Currently, less than 100 Veterans who are recipients of the medal are still living. That’s less than 100 men out of approximately 24 Million Veterans.
I didn’t receive a Congressional Medal of Honor because I never performed any act of bravery that rose to the level of sacrifice that would merit one. But, why should that matter? I served a little over 8 years active duty in the U.S. Army, spent 18 months in Vietnam, was shot at, mortared, subjected to rocket attacks and sapper attacks, just like many others.
But, without performing that act of “conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of my life above and beyond the call of duty while engaged in an action against an enemy of the United States,” I am not a recipient.
So, what makes me think I should receive one now?
Besides the obvious implication of racism in the title, before you jump on me for being racist, allow me to point out that the title is a quote from Charles Rynerson, a demographer at Portland State Population Research Center and used in an article published in the Columbian, County’s surge in children bucks local, national trends.
The article goes on to tell us that we have seen a, “13.7 percent upsurge in the number of children in Clark County in the past 10 years, the largest growth in the Portland metro area and a trend that goes against the national tide of stagnation.”
Once again, ignoring all economic woes affecting the state, turning a blind eye to a 35% increase in Illegal Aliens in the state, while the rest of the country showed a slight decline or remained steady, a bill to block granting Illegal Aliens in the state a valid Washington drivers license was killed in the Senate in the waning seconds before the “cut-off” time, where no non-budget, Senate bill may be passed and referred on to the House.
With 5 minutes to go before that “cut-off,” Senator Mark Schoesler (R-Ritzville, Adams County) motioned for consideration of SB 5407, a bill “Concerning the issuance of drivers’ licenses, drivers’ instruction permits, juvenile agricultural driving permits, and identicards.”
Senator Schoesler was attempting to allow the Senate to vote on the bill that was blocked from the Senate calendar by the Democrat Speaker Lisa Brown (Spokane). His motion failed 23-25 with this bills primary sponsor, Sen. Mary Margaret Haugen, (D-Camano Island) joining the ‘No’ votes.
Of that apparent ‘flip-flop,’ Haugen said,
“Nothing is ever dead in the Legislature. I’m going to go talk to the governor. I’d ask the governor that she needs to stand and take leadership in this role. She needs to recognize what’s happening in this nation.”
When was the last time governor Gregoire actually stood up for citizens in Washington State? If the Democrat Speaker refuses to recognize what is happening in the country, what makes her believe the Democrat governor will?
The Sunday February 27 Columbian included an article saying “Hispanic population rises quickly” 2010 Census figures reveal that number of Latinos in Clark County nearly doubled in past decade. Even though singling out Hispanics, nowhere is even an estimate given of how many are in the country openly in violation of our immigration laws nor is it pointed out that illegal aliens violating our immigration is not restricted to Hispanics.
The Seattle Times, on February 1 was more informative, letting us know, “Illegal-immigrant numbers in state jump 35% in 3 years” An estimated 230,000 illegal immigrants were living in Washington state last year — 35 percent more than three years earlier, according to a new report by the Pew Hispanic Center. The total represents one of every 20 workers in the state.
Unlike the Columbian article, the Seattle Times breaks it down saying, “While 57 percent are from Mexico, the illegal immigrants hail from across the world, including Canada.” The remaining 43% are just as much illegal aliens as are the 57% Mexicans. The call for border enforcement and adherence to our immigration laws is not about disliking Mexicans, racism against Hispanics or any other such tomfoolery people accuse others who call for immigration enforcement of.
Ignoring the fact that Washington State is deeply embroiled in the worsening economic decline, it is utterly unbelievable to see a group of about 400 people marching upon the capital in Olympia opposing budget cuts intended to close the multi-Billion dollar budget gap.
Even more astonishing, many in the crowd appear to be in the country ‘ILLEGALLY!’ As such, they are lawbreakers! Illegal aliens!
We recently saw in a Seattle Times report: “An estimated 230,000 illegal immigrants were living in Washington state in 2010 — 35 percent more than three years earlier,” with the claim by state senator Val Stevens, “the illegal-immigrant cost to the state is $272 million a biennium for such functions as social services, health and corrections.”
At the rally, illegal immigrants gathered to “urge lawmakers to oppose cuts to medical interpreters and health care for kids and fight bills that require immigration status checks before issuing driver’s licenses.”
While illegal aliens whine and cry for public tax dollars to support them, information entered in Immigration Form I-864, sponsorship of a legal immigrant states, “The information will be used principally by an immigration judge, USCIS or a Consular Officer to support an alien’s application for benefits under the Immigration and Nationality Act and specifically the assertion that he or she has adequate means of financial support and will not become a public charge.” (pg 9)
The Seattle Times reports: “An estimated 230,000 illegal immigrants were living in Washington state in 2010 — 35 percent more than three years earlier.”
That gives Washington State the seventh-highest rate of illegal immigrants in the country. 3 years ago, we didn’t place in the top ten!
Nationally, the numbers estimated of illegal aliens in the country remains virtually unchanged with a slight decrease, according to the Pew Research Center in Washington, D.C.
The director of the state’s Commission on Hispanic Affairs, Uriel Iñiguez says, “the fact that the illegal immigrant population nationally hasn’t declined shows people aren’t going anywhere,” adding “It’s one of the arguments I make all the time — passing laws won’t prevent people from being here undocumented.”
During the campaign for nomination to succeed retiring Brian Baird, I noted that all of the GOP challengers made statements on their position concerning Illegal Immigration. All except Jaime Herrera, that is.
As noted in the original post, some time AFTER writing that post, her campaign listed a vague position on Illegal Immigration, her campaign having been goaded into stating a position. But, vague or not, it was still a stated position.
As we all know, Jaime, now going by her husbands name, Herrera-Beutler, won her climb up the political ladder and has been sworn in, assuming her seat in the House. In due time, she got her official web site up and running for all of us constituents to be able to follow her and know her positions.
Barack Obama’s group set up to persuade citizen’s to buy into his agenda is working overtime today. With our country in dire straits, unemployment increasing, jobs drying up, national debt spiraling out of control and all of the maladies facing the nation, isn’t it odd that the main focus remains to be on passing the backdoor amnesty act for children of ILLEGAL Aliens brought to the country when young and caving into Gays who want to force acceptance of their sexuality upon the country.
Don’t believe me? I received the following just today in my email.
And, to make sure you do it right with the proper words, they even supply you a script to go along with the names and phone numbers of who to call to encourage calling legislators to pass these bills.
Shouldn’t we worry first about getting the nation back on sound economic footing?
Do you appreciate your name and phone number being given out to strangers on an email list?

Washington Citizens’ Group Files Petition for Release of Disqualified Juror Information
Group Seeks to Remove Ineligible Voters from Rolls
A citizens’ watchdog group, Respect Washington today filed a petition Tuesday in King County Superior Court seeking release of “non-juror information” from King County and the other 38 Washington counties. Non-juror information pertains to individuals who were deemed unqualified for serving on juries because of citizenship status or other reasons. Respect Washington is seeking access to this public information in order to verify that ineligible individuals are not registered to vote in Washington. Respect Washington was assisted by the Immigration Reform Law Institute.
Cross-referencing non-juror information in Douglas and Pacific Counties in 2006 and 2007 revealed that many of the individuals who were deemed ineligible for service as jurors were registered voters. In Douglas County, 42 percent of those rejected for jury service were on the voter rolls, and 56 percent of those ruled ineligible for jury duty in Pacific County were registered to vote. Each of the five criteria used to disqualify individuals from jury service would also make them ineligible to vote.
