Look at the right hand. Obama will keep leaking one scandal a week until Immigration Bill passes.
If Immigration Bill Passes, it will be Impossible to Impeach Obama. No matter what the hearings reveal on Benghazi or the IRS; if the Immigration Bill passes, Republicans will lose elections and will not be able to impeach Obama.
The law, the legal and judicial system will become irrelevant when illegal immigrants assume control of the voting process. They will steamroll over our democratic processes. Obama will use them to implement whatever socialistic program he wishes. Most of these illegal immigrants have never graduated high school and have no appreciation for American history. They will bring with them the respect for the law they have been taught in their own countries: Mexico, Venezuela, Bolivia, Ivory Coast, Zimbabwe. These countries are lawless hell holes controlled by crooked politicians and military’s.
These were all Democracies taken over by socialists.
SOME REPORT THE SCANDALS ARE MEANT TO OBFUSCATE THE PRESIDENTS REAL GOAL: TO SNEAK THE IMMIGRATION BILL THROUGH CONGRESS.
MUSIC TO READ BY:
This is an end around game with Obama trying to provide cover for the Republicans and Democrats who don’t want to get caught voting for the Immigration Bill.
THIS IMMIGRATION BILL INCLUDES AMNESTY FOR 20 MILLION ILLEGAL ALIENS and NO BORDER SECURITY.
This Immigration Bill will cost the American taxpayer 3.6 trillion dollars in social programs.
IF THIS IMMIGRATION BILL PASSES OBAMA BECOMES DICTATOR THE SAME WAY HUGO CHAVEZ, ROBERT MUGABE, AND ALLESAINE QATTARA BECAME absolute DICTATORS WITHIN DEMOCRATIC POLITICAL SYSTEMS.
With Washington immersed in and distracted by a trio of scandals, the giant immigration reform bill is headed to the Senate floor after five days of amendments in the Judiciary Committee.
The vote was 13-5, with Republican Sens. Jeff Flake of Arizona, Lindsey Graham of South Carolina and Orrin Hatch of Utah joining the 10 Democrats on the committee to pass the bill.
After five days of negotiations, the Senate Judiciary Committee finished its work on the Immigration bill created by the so-called “gang of eight” bipartisan Senators….
GOP Sens. John Cornyn and Ted Cruz of Texas, Chuck Grassley of Iowa, Mike Lee of Utah and Jeff Sessions of Alabama voted against it.
The original 844-page bill from the Group of Eight emerges from committee molded by a bevy of amendments, including 48 from Republicans that were adopted.
Gang of Eight member Sen. Robert Menendez (D-N.J.), though, said he was “pleased to see that the original foundation of our legislation was not weakened.”
“Our carefully crafted compromise withstood a tough series of poison pill amendments, and its passage out of the Judiciary Committee brings us a step closer to final passage by the senate,” said Menendez, who does not sit on the committee. “Members from the entire political spectrum continue to support the bipartisan proposal put forth; this is the right approach at the right time. I will continue to do everything I can to push this bill across the finish line, and I look forward to a thoughtful and fair debate in the senate floor.”
Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), also a member of the original negotiating group but not on the committee that marked up his bill, said he thought the committee “made real improvements to the bill.”
“The amended bill that heads to the Senate floor would make significant progress to secure our borders, make E-Verify mandatory for the first time in American history, effectively crack down on immigrants who overstay visas, and modernize the legal immigration system to meet America’s 21st century economic needs for both highly skilled talent and guest workers to fill labor shortages,” Rubio said.
However, he added, the reform bill won’t be successful “unless we can earn the confidence of the American people that we are solving our immigration problems once and for all.”
“As evidenced by the statements of many of my colleagues who voted against the bill in committee today, the vast majority of Americans across the political spectrum are prepared to give millions of people living here today illegally the opportunity to earn legal status and, potentially, permanent residence and citizenship – but only if they pay fines, pass background checks, don’t receive federal benefits and wait in line behind everybody who followed the rules,” Rubio said. “And only if we secure the border and take steps that ensure that we will never again have another wave of illegal immigration.”
Cornyn said he felt the markup made some improvements, but ultimately the legislation fell short of what was needed to get his vote.
“I was disappointed the Committee rejected an amendment I offered that would’ve required real border security results. Another promise from Washington, D.C., to secure the border won’t cut it,” he said. “I am deeply concerned about this and other flaws in the current proposal. I want the system to work for everyone, and I am hopeful that common sense will eventually lead to common ground.”
Sessions, whose opposition to the legislation was especially vocal during the markup, highlighted a letter just released by a coalition of conservative activists urging lawmakers to vote against the bill and saying “no matter how well-intentioned, the Schumer-Rubio bill suffers from fundamental design flaws that make it unsalvageable.”
“Many of us support various parts of the legislation, but the overall package is so unsatisfactory that the Senate would do better to start over from scratch,” says the letter, which also urges senators to vote against cloture and keep the bill from coming up for a vote. Signatories include PJ Media’s Allen West, Victor Davis Hanson and Andrew McCarthy.
“The coalition letter is an important and decisive moment in this debate, reflecting deep, broad and principled conservative opposition,” Sessions said. “They note, correctly, that the Gang of Eight legislation is like Obamacare—a large, unwieldy bill filled with broken promises and special interest giveaways. The letter makes crucial points about how the Gang of Eight legislation will pull down Americans’ wages, destroy American jobs and erode the constitutional rule of law as immigration officers have repeatedly warned. While the number of voices supporting the Gang of Eight legislation shrinks, the number of Americans speaking out against this proposal continues to grow.”
An idea so crazy it just might … Opponents and supporters of “comprehensive immigration reform” (i.e. amnesty) agree it doesn’t do well on the front burner of public debate. Excessive attention exposes flaws and contradictions in the legislation and focuses the anger of opponents. Back in March, I didn’t see how the Obama team, however brilliant, was going to protect its amnesty bill from this threat of publicity, given that the mainstream press was “commmitted to overcovering this issue.”
Now we know the answer! In its most fiendish strategem yet, Team Obama has launched a series of not-quite-devastating but press-obsessing scandals against itself! The confluence of the Internal Revenue Service, Benghazi and AP stories means that dreadful details of the Schumer-Rubio bill will get pushed off the front pages. Reporters who might otherwise cover it will be temporarily sent to Cincinatti to interview IRS whistleblowers. Meanhwile, the scandals give Sen. Rubio and other Republicans a chance to bash Obama about something new, giving them the anti-Obama cred that might allow them to quietly sell out on amnesty and hand Obama his greatest second-term triumph! Similarly, the scandals give conservative activists an alternative, substitute target for their outrage, all the more so because the anger is legitimate. As Greg Sargent put it, the scandals could “distract right wing base for long enough for Graham and Rubio to slip immigration reform past them.” (Dem strategist Joe Trippi tweeted in response: “Shhhhh …”)
I still find it hard to believe the amnesty conspirators will actually be able to bring a final bill to a final vote in the House and Senate without the anti-amnesty conservative wing of the Republicans waking up to the threat. (Rush Limbaugh? Ted Cruz? You there?) But they’re doing better at neutralizing the “cynosure problem” than I’d thought.
I received an insightful email from reader Karen Sacandy:
Dear Professor Jacobson:
I’m among your many grateful readers, but at this time, the Democrats are like Thomas Crown in the flick, “The Thomas Crown Affair,” who created a distraction over here, while over there, he was stealing a multimillion dollar painting.
But in this case, it’s a total transformation of the American people, by immigration law changes to aid and abet the non-enforcement we’ve had for decades. All these abuses of power converging at this time are almost COMPLETELY distracting everyone who could bring pressure to bear to prevent the enactment of new law which without question – without question – will alter our demographics and governing philosophy to the point of no return.
I hope you’ll consider going in a new direction.
My response was:
I don’t consider the current fights irrelevant either in themselves or as to immigration. In fact, I think they are quite connected, and it’s possible to fight all at once.
To which she replied:
You may be right. But the bill in the Senate is doing, as they say, famously!
Thanks for the reply. ;^)))
Karen makes a very good point.
Key Republicans have buckled under. The Senate will pass the bill right under our noses.
We have a variety of concerns; some of us share only one, others share all. Among these concerns are that the bill:
* Is bloated and unwieldy along the lines of Obamacare or Dodd-Frank;
* Cedes excessive control over immigration law to an administration that has repeatedly proven itself to be untrustworthy, even duplicitous;
* Legalizes millions of illegal immigrants before securing the borders, thus ensuring future illegal immigration;
* Rewards law breakers and punishes law enforcement, undermining the rule of law;
* Hurts American job-seekers, especially those with less education;
* Threatens to bankrupt our already strained entitlement system;
* Expands government by creating new bureaucracies, authorizing new spending, and calling for endless regulations;
* Contains dangerous loopholes that threaten national security;
* Is shot through with earmarks for politically connected interest groups;
* Overwhelms our immigration bureaucracy, guaranteeing widespread fraud.
Reforming our immigration system is an important priority. But S.744 is such a defective measure that it would do more harm than good.
The Gang of 8 bill, if it passes, will go down in history as a mistake as disastrous as Obamacare. It must be stopped.
Democrats are playing the long game. Republicans in Congress are acting like scared cats playing a short game for 2014 and 2016.

My Dad often said: “Intrigue only begat intrigue”. He was usually right. One conspiracy leads to another like a room full of mirrors reflecting themselves.
Still, here goes.
I have been watching Youtube collections of stuff from the talking heads and interviews today. I am cementing my earlier view… this IRS abuse is a massive smoke screen to hide something even bigger from attention. A lose the battle win the war tactic. Sure, this IRS scandal is a big deal and it is just the kind of attack on liberty all the right can get behind. Just the kind of terrible problem Obama needs to ride to the rescue to solve so that he can appear presidential. As bumbling as the effort appears he could still pull it off.
The performance by Miller today was just too bizarre. Nobody that gets that far is that stupid or obtuse unless it is on purpose. Are they?
1. This is an emotive issue sure to capture the public attention 2. Congress must act with outrage 3. The media is being far too cooperative 4. Miller is way too smug. He is either unbelievably arrogant or intentionally acting bizarre. Just plain bizarre. He makes outrageous statements and contradictions of the IG report and even himself. Classic diversion? The guy going out anyway who was not even the director when all this happened but awfully close to the action. 5. Why the big orchestration of the “leak” on Friday at the Bar Association meeting by Lois Lerner? To what purpose? 6. IRS says we gave poor customer service, we made mistakes, we acted inappropriately, we apologise? Strange. And then ostoner says the acts are alleged and if they are true we are will take “appropriate” action? Then he comes out and is outraged? Come on. I’ve seen crocodile tears before and can recognize them. 7. An opportunity to change the tax code? It makes no difference to ostoner how taxes are collected just as long as there are lots of them to redistribute. If he can give the sheeple what they want and still get what he wants… what does it matter how he gets it? Besides, it gives the stupid congressionals something to work on and not bother or watch him and his gang of criminals.

Snip: We have been importing jihadists for years now with Muslim immigration programs under the Refugee Resettlement program, diversity visas and religious visas. The Refugee Council USA says: “The U.S. has historically maintained a policy of admitting refugees of special humanitarian concern into the country.” Yet what that means in practice is very different from what most Americans would expect. It’s always a shock to people when they first find out how Refugee Resettlement works. Instead of giving refuge to the religious minorities that are persecuted, oppressed and subjugated under the Shariah, we are opening the floodgates to Islamic supremacists…
