Lurline’s younger brother passed away early this morning. Arrangements are being made through Akers’ Funeral Home in Blue Ridge. Your prayers for the family are appreciated.
It’s no longer everyone else’s imagination but purely his own: Obama, and not cash, is king.
Surrealistic as it may be, isn’t that a tiny crown graphic at the bottom of Barack Obama’s picture in the ‘Stand for Action on Immigration’ ad sent out by Organizing for Action at 10 o’clock last night?
The email message, subject line of which is “President Obama, just now”: has arrived in millions of email accounts this morning, which should forever more be known as “the morning after Obama announced he will be shielding some 5-million illegal aliens in America from deportation”.
Ooh-Wee what a hero—at least in his own imperial mind!
Obama’s latest email message proves beyond any doubt that by the time the lie has already gone halfway around the world, the truth is just trying to put its pants on.
Make Way for the King, the one that would sink his own country by overrunning it with people born elsewhere.
Kingly, in the sense of a King George III, Obama, who hasn’t graced the inside of a church in lo these many years, had the audacity to use scripture in last night’s televised address:
“During his address, Obama quoted the Book of Exodus, saying:
“Scripture tells us that we shall not oppress a stranger, for we know the heart of a stranger — we were strangers once, too. My fellow Americans, we are and always will be a nation of immigrants. We were strangers once, too.” (Matthew Vadum).
But the ‘Ego King’ was much less than kingly when he portrayed millions of Latinos he is saving from deportation with a wave of his magic wand as those who “pick our fruit and make our beds”.
Surely it is racist to portray all Latinos as the downstairs in the ‘Upstairs Downstairs’ caricature range.
There surely must be many waiting for overnight legitimacy who double the brain power of elected senators.
What Obama really did with his latest fiat was to pounce on the Good Ship America, adrift for six long years on the open sea, to scuttle it.
Americans, whom he was elected to represent, are now figuratively swimming in a shark-infested sea without life jackets looking for any kind of driftwood to keep from perishing.
But above all, defiantly Marxist in English-tranlated-to-Spanish speech,Obama, who no less than 22 times said it would not be within his constitutional power to deliver Executive Amnesty, is denying that what he delivered last night was really Amnesty:
“Amnesty is the immigration system we have today. Millions of people who live here without paying their taxes or playing by the rules, while politicians use the issue to scare people and whip up votes at election time. That’s the real amnesty, leaving this broken system the way it is. Mass amnesty would be unfair.”
“Nor is the immigration system broken, at least not in the way Obama means. (Vadum)
“When progressives say the system is broken, they mean it is functioning in a less than optimal manner, failing to capture every single prospective illegal alien available to wade across the Rio Grande or walk across the nation’s largely undefended border with Mexico. To them, immigration policy is a taxpayer-subsidized get-out-the-vote scheme for Democrats and the best reform they could imagine would be to abolish America’s borders altogether. Obama’s new amnesty plan is a step in this direction.
“It is also a profoundly cynical move that rewards lawbreaking and begets future immigration amnesties. It will spell electoral death for the Republican Party in coming years because “Latinos, who are believed to comprise the bulk of the illegals, have traditionally shown a strong preference for the Democratic Party and its left-of-center public policies. The amnesty for 5 million illegals is likely just the beginning. The government recently issued a procurement order seeking a contractor to make as many as 34 million immigration documents over the coming five years.”
For the survival searchers on the big morning after: Don’t, whatever you do, count on the jellyfish-spined Boehners and McConnell’s tripping over their own pant legs insisting to be ‘the pants-on truthers’ trying to catch up with the lie now out there going breakneck-speed around the upside-down world.
All dumped into the sea last night: grab onto any piece of driftwood within your reach.
The enemy is not the five million illegals to be granted Amnesty-that’s-not-Amnesty by the wand of a newly crowned king: Check out that tiny graphic on Obama’s latest ad where you will understand that you would have to be a mad man beyond saving if you run with an ad depicting a crown graphic on the very next day after you sunk the Good Ship America.

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Rep. Tom Graves (R-GA-14), a member of the powerful House Appropriations Committee, was selected today to serve as chairman of the Subcommittee on the Legislative Branch for the 114th Congress.
“I joined this committee because of the unique opportunity to fight for taxpayers and reform the federal government,” said Rep. Graves. “I want the Appropriations Committee to be known as a place where taxpayer dollars are saved, not spent. As the Legislative Branch Subcommittee chairman, I’ll have a prime opportunity to walk the conservative talk. It’s an honor to have Chairman Rogers and the House Majority entrust me with this major responsibility.”
Rep. Graves was elected to the House in 2010 and joined the House Appropriations Committee at the start of the 112th Congress in 2011. It is rare for a House member to ascend to a subcommittee chairmanship after just four years, particularly on the Appropriations Committee, which is considered one of the most influential congressional committees due to its power over federal spending. The Committee has cut over $165 billion in federal discretionary spending since Rep. Graves joined.
The Legislative Branch Subcommittee has jurisdiction over expenditures for the House of Representatives, Capitol Police, Library of Congress, Government Accountability Office, Government Printing Office and other related areas.
I’m glad to see my own congressman chair an influential committee. I’m sure that he will work closely with Budget Committee Chairman Tom Price.
President Obama’s executive action on immigration will provide deportation relief to a quarter million farm workers, a top union executive said after a meeting at the White House on Wednesday.
“We were pleased to learn from the President today that at least 250,000 farm workers (and at least 125,000 California farm workers) will be eligible for deportation relief under his executive action,” said Arturo Rodriguez, the president of United Farm Workers (UFW), in a statement Wednesday.
“The president committed to working with UFW to do everything possible to make sure that every farm worker who qualifies for the program gets enrolled, and we are prepared to work with him and Congress to finish the job by passing legislation that fully addresses this issue once and for all.”
The president is expected to announce a sweeping set of executive actions that extends the deportation deferrals and work permits to millions of illegal immigrants with children who are U.S. citizens or dependents. Obama is also likely to announce an expansion of the visa program for skilled high tech workers.
The UFW and other farm workers groups participated in a Thanksgiving-themed protest in front of the White House earlier in the day, imploring Obama to include the workers as part of the plan.
“It makes absolutely no sense, none whatsoever, to take farm workers, hundreds of thousands of them we all know are undocumented, and to take them from our fields,” Rep. Rep. Luis Gutiérrez (D-Ill.) said at the event.
“What we should do is document them. Mr. President, give them the working documents they need.”
Talk about brazen!
Obama is about to unilaterally grant amnesty to over five million illegal and undocumented immigrants, without any Congressional consent, through his extraordinary and potentially illegal use of “Presidential” executive order- notwithstanding that Obama’s popularity with the American people is at an all time low.
Currently, Obama’s approval rating with the American people is trending below 40%.
In the recent 2014 U.S. midterm elections, the American people sent a very clear and resounding message to Congress and to U.S. President Obama. The American were very dissatisfied with the Obama presidency, Obama’s major policies, and even with Obama, himself.
Accordingly, the House Republicans, as of this date, picked up a net total of twelve Congressmen and if they win the remaining five seats being contested in run-off elections, the House Republicans will have attained the largest Republican majority in the House since 1928.
In the Senate, Republicans gained majority control of the Senate, picking up eight Senators for a total of fifty-three Senators ( and a possible fifty-fourth seat with the likely defeat of Democratic Landrieu in the upcoming Louisiana Senate run-off.)
Obama is so out of touch and unpopular with his own party, that certain Democratic Congressional candidates, in the last election, did not even want to be seen with or campaign with him , due to his perceived unpopularity.
Where I come from- Canada- when the people speak , through their votes in an election, we conservatives, listen. Because we Canadian conservatives, as American Republicans, believe that the people are always right.
Clearly, in Obama’s mind, the people are not always right. In fact, Obama and his fellow Democrats, obviously channeling one of ObamaCare’s key architects, Jonathan Gruber, believe that the American people are stupid.
Apparently, to Obama, the American people do not know any better. So Obama is apparently going to ignore the wishes of the people, and instead he is going to plunge ahead unilaterally, without Congress and impose an immigration solution on the entire country.
According to reliable reports, Obama is planning to issue executive orders which will in effect grant amnesty to five million illegal and undocumented immigrants. And permit them to stay and work in the United States.
Obama will argue that he has received a legal opinion from his own appointed Attorney General, Eric Holder, which will suggest that Obama has the legal and executive authority and discretion as President to order that these five million illegal immigrants not be deported and in addition, that work permits be provided to these same persons.
Ironically, for many years, Obama himself has been arguing the exact opposite- that to do what has been suggested by pro immigrant activists- is illegal.
In March 2011, Obama argued that he could not as President prevent the deportation of illegal immigrants. He stated to the effect, that the nation’s laws were clear enough, “that for me to simply, through executive order, ignore those congressional mandates would not conform with my appropriate role as President.”

KENNESAW — After a heated discussion between residents and council members that lasted more than two hours, the Kennesaw City Council tabled a vote Monday that would have decided whether to allow an Islamic worship center in a Kennesaw shopping plaza.
The City Council voted 3-2, with Leonard Church and Debra Williams opposed, to delay the vote by two weeks to its Dec. 1 council meeting.
Councilwoman Cris Eaton-Welsh said she wanted to allow time for the residents who spoke at the meeting to resolve their concerns about the Islamic center.
“I (request) to table this so that the communities can have some conversations and see if we can’t get rid of some of these misunderstandings,” Eaton-Welsh said.
Doug Dillard, the attorney representing the applicant, Suffa Dawat Center at Kennesaw, said they plan to make themselves available in the next two weeks so city employees can schedule a neighborhood meeting to discuss the center. Dillard said he thinks the issues residents brought up Monday can be resolved.
“Absolutely, I think they’re very solvable,” Dillard said.
The proposal would turn a 2,200-square-foot suite in a shopping center off Jiles Road into a prayer hall for Muslims.
The shopping center, called Kennesaw Commons, is at 2750 Jiles Road behind a Publix grocery store off Cobb Parkway.
Kennesaw Mayor Mark Mathews said the city has never approved a permit for any type of religious facility in a retail environment that he can remember.
Eighteen people spoke to a standingroom only crowd Monday night in the Kennesaw council chambers.
Ashley Haspel, who owns a beauty salon inside the shopping center and lives in Kennesaw, said she is concerned people attending the prayer hall would use too many parking places, leaving no room for her customers.
“A worship center has no place being in a retail center. There are many other places for a worship center … Any religious organization does not fit the profile of bringing commerce to a retail center. It would hurt our business not having the parking for our customers,” Haspel said.
According to the application for the permit, the daily prayer services would likely be attended by 10 to 20 people and the weekly prayer service will see 60 to 80 people.
Abdul Amer, a traffic engineer representing the Islamic center, said he did a traffic study on the parking lot and found with maximum attendance at the prayer sessions, there would be 20 additional cars in the shopping center’s lot. The shopping plaza has 127 parking spaces.
“It’s a small percentage of the parking lot being used today. Any concerns by retailers are just unfounded,” Amer said.
Mathews took issue with the statement, asking Amer repeatedly if he was sure about the estimate.
“That’s your testimony? Under oath? As a professional engineer?” Mathews asked.
Amer stood by his statements.

When the U.S. Senate shifts to Republican control in January, a number of high-ranking GOP senators will get the opportunity to lead committees. Georgia U.S. Senator, Johnny Isakson (R-Georgia) is in the running for two chairmanships.
Sen. Richard Burr (R-North Carolina) is currently in charge of the Senate Veterans’ Affairs Committee. But Burr has thrown his hat in the ring for chairman of Senate Intelligence. If he moves there, that would make Senator Isakson the highest ranking member of the Veterans’ Affairs committee.
“And that would normally go to the chairmanship when we take the majority, but that would have to be ratified by a vote of the conference,” Senator Isakson said.
It’s something Senator Isakson’s hopeful about.
“You’re always optimistic in our business.”
The Senator has long been outspoken on Veterans’ issues. Last year, he held a hearing with top VA officials in Atlanta last year. It came after several deaths linked to mismanagement in the Atlanta VA’s mental programs. Isakson also voted in favor of a bill to overhaul the VA system after a national scandal over wait times.
University of Georgia Political Science Professor Charles Bullock said if Isakson becomes committee chair “it will likely mean good things for Georgia veterans.
“Isakson will be well-positioned to look out for their concerns. A concern not just of Georgia veterans, but of all veterans, will be the condition of healthcare provided to them. We all are familiar with stories about the breakdown in that aspect of veterans’ services, and undoubtedly in the next two years we will see Congress looking into those conditions and trying to come up with corrections.”
Isakson would not give details, but says he’s already working with the U.S. Veterans Affairs Secretary Robert McDonald on a number of ways to improve the VA system.
Isakson could also become chair of the Senate Ethics Committee.
A balanced budget within “a 10-year window”, reforming the Congressional budget process and robust oversight of the Obama administration (shocking) are among Cong. Tom Price’s priorities as the new chair of the House Budget Committee. The Marietta Republican was elected to the post and in a statement released on Wednesday, outlined five priorities.
Other items topping his agenda are creating a budget that “invests in the nation’s priorities while saving and strengthening our health and retirement programs,” using reconciliation to move policies to Obama’s desk and “a continued focus on the current unsustainability of the nation’s entitlement programs.” The last point, I’m sure, means he will grandstand about making cuts, but won’t actually risk angering any constituents by reducing government spending.
Price gave a few details about his plans:
“We will put forward a budget that restores balance to the nation’s books. It will provide a blueprint for how to save and strengthen vital health and retirement programs while ensuring needed resources for those who protect and defend our great nation. Key to accomplishing real results will be to use budgetary processes at our disposal to move meaningful legislation through the House and Senate and to the president’s desk for his consideration. This can and must be done in a transparent manner with consultation and input from members across different committees of jurisdiction and Congress at large.
“Unique to our committee will be a continued commitment to the review and reform of the Congressional budget process. Congress budgets and assesses the fiscal and economic impact of policies using a 40-year old framework in which the default is to spend more, not less. The current Congressional Budget Office rules and analytical limitations lead to unrealistic projections and are vulnerable to manipulation. We need to modernize the budget process so Congress has a more complete and realistic understanding of the impact policies will have on the nation’s fiscal health, the economy and the well-being of families and businesses.”
