Alinsky Does Amnesty

Family Security Matters

by ANDREW C. MCCARTHY

 

President Obama is an Alinskyite.​

That assertion is not an epithet – well, not primarily. True, I would not describe someone I admired as an “Alinskyite.” Saul Alinsky was a loathsome figure – a radical statist who whose toxic brew of thoroughgoing deceit and brass-knuckles extortion (“direct action”) has become a part of mainstream politics. But in tying the president to the seminal community organizer whose theories and tactics so influenced him, my purpose is more to decode than to insult him.

Of course, calling Obama an “Alinskyite” draws cataracts of condemnation from the Democrat-media complex – for the same reason that Muslim Brotherhood shrieks of “Islamophobe!” inevitably follow any reasoned, scripturally based discussion of Islamic supremacism. People who advance their agendas in dishonesty and stealth can’t afford to have critics shine a light on them. The best diversion is to smear the critic as racist and phobic – or as Alinsky, a master of the game, put it, “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.”

Well, this week Alinsky did amnesty, so let’s not be diverted.

Having Disarmed Population, British Authorities Are Going After Knives

Moonbattery

Say liberals are able to confiscate every firearm that is not in the hands of the government or criminals, will they finally be satisfied and leave us alone? Of course not. The reason they call their ideology “progressivism” is that it never stops progressing, since absolute tyranny can never quite be achieved. Next after guns will be sharp objects. Airstrip One is already there. The following is not from The Onion, but from the official website of Lancashire Constabulary:

Lancashire Constabulary has joined forces with the ground-breaking national anti-knife crime campaign ‘Save a Life, Surrender Your Knife’, as the force’s knife amnesty comes to an end.

Since the amnesty began at the end of August, more than 800 knives have been handed in across the county – including swords, machetes and commando knives.

Axes count too. Presumably so do steak knives, pocket knives, butter knives, and possibly nail clippers.

Lancashire officers have now given their backing to a national initiative designed to raise awareness of knife crime and encourage the surrender of dangerous weapons. …

Despite the amnesty ending [in October], police say people can continue to hand in any knife at any police station with a front counter as well being able to drop them into the designated bins.

What happens to you if you are caught with a sharp object after the amnesty ends for real? Best not to find out; irrational tyrannies are to be avoided at all costs, so steer clear of Britain, even if the USA ranks even lower in personal freedom now.

No doubt authorities will be astonished when rendering the law-abiding population still more vulnerable to the criminal elements imported on a massive scale from the Third World does not end crime. Their response will be another righteous campaign, possibly against blunt objects.

On the level, I swear it.

Here Are the Top Ten Lies from Barack Obama’s Executive Amnesty Speech

Gateway Pundit

Barack Obama repeatedly suggested executive amnesty would not be legal or ethical.
Obama said passing executive amnesty “would not conform with my appropriate role as president.”

Last night Obama passed executive amnesty.
Here are the Top Ten Lies from his speech.
Conservative Review put together the Top 10 Lies from Barack Obama’s executive amnesty speech.

Lie #1: Every President has Taken Executive Action on Immigration: No other president has ever issued an amnesty of anywhere near this scope, created it out of thin air, or built it upon a prior executive action instead of a statute. And in the case of President Eisenhower, his executive action was to deport 80,000 illegal immigrants.

Lie #2: Illegal Immigrant Crossings are Down: Actually, this is the third straight year that border crossings have gone up, not to mention the entirely new wave from Central America.

Lie #3: It does not grant citizenship or the right to stay here permanently: Under the royal edict, the work permits can be renewed every three years, and most likely, they will be renewed at the same 99.5% acceptance rate as DACA applications. And once they get Social Security cards, they are going nowhere. So yes, this is permanent. And yes, they will be able to get green cards, which puts them on an automatic path to citizenship: “we are reducing the time that families are separated while obtaining their green cards. Undocumented immigrants who are immediate relatives of lawful permanent residents or sons or daughters of US citizens can apply to get a waiver if a visa is available.”

Lie #4: Only 5 Million: Make no mistake about it. Obama’s illegal amnesty will not just apply to 5 million individuals. It will apply by default to all 12-20 million illegals in the country as well as the millions more who will now come here to enjoy the permanent cessation of borders and sovereignty. Given the numerous options for people to become eligible for amnesty, ICE and CPB will be restricted from enforcing the law against anyone because each individual has to be afforded the opportunity to present themselves and apply for status. There is no way those who were here for less than 5 years will be deported and there’s no way the new people rushing the border and overstaying their visas will be repatriated.

Lie #5: Deport Felons: Obama claims he is going to focus on deporting felons. Yet, he has done the opposite. 36,000 convicted criminal aliens were released last year, 80,000 criminal aliens encountered by ICE weren’t even placed into deportation proceedings, 167,000 criminal aliens who were ordered deported are still at large, 341,000 criminal aliens released by ICE without deportation orders are known to be free and at large in the US. Again, this is cessation of deportations for everyone. They are leaving no illegal behind.

Coincidence? Obama to Announce Executive Amnesty on National Revolution Day in Mexico

Gateway Pundit

Obama will announce his Executive Amnesty Plan tonight.
Today is National Revolution Day in Mexico
mexican revolution day
The Mexican Revolution, began on November 20, 1910, and continued for a decade. The United States, Mexico’s northern neighbor, was significantly affected by the human dislocation that resulted: if someone did not want to fight, the only alternative was to leave the country—and over 890,000 Mexicans did just that by legally emigrating during the second decade of the 20th century.

The Obama administration and minions in the media insist President Reagan also used executive amnesty to allow illegals in the country.

As Rush Limbaugh explained, “This is a bald-faced flat-out lie.”

Ronald Reagan signed a piece of legislation. It was the Simpson-Mazzoli Act. It was 1986. Congress debated and passed a law to grant amnesty to three million illegal immigrants, and Reagan signed it. — Obama is passing amnesty without Congressional legislation.

Super-Amnesty Will Turn Every City into Detroit

Family Security Matters

After another bloody weekend in Chicago, Mayor Rahm Emanuel branded the shootings unacceptable and the city’s top cop demanded more gun control laws. Chicago’s murder rate has actually dropped since concealed carry became legal. Emanuel’s lawsuits over his illegal gun control laws have left the already struggling city deep in the hole and forced to cover the NRA’s million dollars in legal bills.

Concealed carry paid off over that bloody weekend when a vet carrying a gun returned fire stopping a massacre before it happened. The original shooter ended up in the hospital, but nobody ended up in the morgue, which kept the death toll for the weekend down to fourteen.

Fourteen isn’t pretty, but it’s better than twenty or thirty.

The Coming Murder of the US Constitution

Free Republic

The most important issue is missing from debate over the coming Obama administration’s “Executive Amnesty for illegal immigrants.”If such an action is taken without even an attempt at impeachment, we will mark that day as the day the U.S. Constitution was murdered.

Certainly some Constitutional forms will hold on another decade or two, but the relevance of Congress to federal policy making, Constitutional branch separation of powers generally, and ultimately the rule of law will be gone. Future generations of Americans will mark the Constitution as a dead letter from that day. Our American birth right to the rule of law and ordered liberty under the Constitution will have been traded for a blatant pursuit of power by any means necessary. Ultimately such power only comes from the barrel of a gun, and here only one side has guns.

That President Obama is dissolving the Constitution for a faster influx of non-white voters so he can dissolve the current declining white majority polity shows a deep love of power, and a deep hatred of any past or current American cultural institutions, that gets in the way of his power.

This isn’t new. Leftists in America have been heading down this road since before the Cold War between America and the Soviet Union started in the 1940’s.

What is new, and the real test here, is acquiescence of the opposition party (Republican) elected elites to this turn of events. They have preemptively surrendered the only real counter to this Executive usurpation of the Legislative power, impeachment of the President, for purported fear of a voter backlash and loss of their new majority in Congress.

Here’s why the Senate should not Confirm Loretta Lynch as Attorney General

Freedom Outpost
Don’t say no—say hell no! Why do we make this statement? Because just like the present Attorney General, Eric Holder, this lady is a fox in sheep clothing. Some say she is pretty equal in her dealings, but they do not recognize her background, nor do they allow her words to enter into the picture—words, by the way, that are very similar if not exactly like Eric Holder’s. We feel it is our duty to inform the public now rather than after this very bad lady is confirmed as to what she truly represents. This will not surprise many, as they are now very weary of anyone Obama places into any nomination. This needs to be spread wide and far and fast.
