…Gutting the First Amendment

What will it take to wake Americans up to the fact that the idiots in the Senate are trying to take away their freedoms just as fast as they can get away with it.

It’s high time that Harry Reid is sent packing back to his little whore house in Searchlight, NV.

When the Senate reconvenes today, the No.1 legislative priority of Democrats is to pass a resolution that would gut the First Amendment, one of the few times in American history an amendment has been proposed to cut back on part of the Bill of Rights.

It’s probably no surprise they want to restrict political speech that could threaten their incumbency, but it is a bit ironic coming just a little more than one week before Constitution Day on Sept. 17.

So, the Senate and the House of Representatives return from a month-long recess and, with everything happening in the world at the moment, the legislative schedule set by Sen. Harry Reid, D-Nev., for Sept. 8, available here on the website of the “Democrats in the U.S. Senate,” includes consideration of a few nominations but lists only one legislative item: a motion to invoke cloture end debate on S.J.Res. 19.

This resolution, sponsored by Sen. Tom Udall, D-N.M., and 47 other senators (without a single Republican member), would amend the First Amendment to give Congress the power to limit fundraising and spending on political speech and political activity. The relevant language says that “Congress and the States may regulate and set reasonable limits on the raising and spending of money by candidates and others to influence elections.”

…Obama is deliberately circumventing the laws of this country and in so doing is dismantling any semblance of America’s storied dedication to the principles of freedom. I am personally ashamed of the President, the Congress and about half of the American people.

Opening the flood gates to these people will bring their third world view of things, which means that freedom isn’t on their minds, just how much free shit can they get from Uncle Sugar.

Those people generally on the left, but also from the right that think bringing in more people will some how spark an economic boom of some sort are delusional at best. From 2000 to present, all employment growth went to aliens, both legal and illegal than went to American citizens.

We had best get our shit together, or this country will be mired in it.

Sessions Warns All of Congress:

Obama’s New Immigration Strategy ‘Threatens Foundation of Our Constitutional Republic’

EXCLUSIVE – Sessions Warns All of Congress: Obama’s New Immigration Strategy ‘Threatens Foundation of Our Constitutional Republic”

Senate Budget Committee ranking member Sen. Jeff Sessions R-AL has warned all of his colleagues in Congress that President Barack Obama’s new immigration strategy—his plans to legalize millions of illegal alien adults through executive power—could destroy America as we know it.

“I write to inform you of a development that threatens the foundation of our constitutional Republic,” Sessions, Congress’s top immigration hawk, wrote in a letter that was hand-delivered to all 535 members of Congress on Monday and provided exclusively to Breitbart News.

Sessions cites a recent report from the National Journal, in which reporter Major Garrett detailed how, despite the ongoing crisis at the border, Obama plans to legalize anywhere from five to six million illegal alien adults in much the same way he did for illegal alien minors through the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals DACA in summer 2012.

…a letter that should be read in all corners.

As a Veteran, I will never support any of the douche-bag sell outs that are running the GOP or voted for this bill.

Your failure is complete.

This letter says it all.

To Congressman Paul RyanToday

Congressman Ryan,

Please note that this request by you for a cash donation from me is extremely unfortunate and very ill-timed. You see sir, I am one of the military retirees your “bipartisan” budget just impacted. You and every Republican both in the House and Senate that voted to pass this travesty betrayed and broke trust with me and everyone like me. You may not know us by name, but we’re the people, Congressman, who answered our Nation’s call, some of us at a very early age to willingly serve YOU and others LIKE YOU so you could safely attend college and pursue your personal ambitions without fear of harm.

You might also want to note that for at least 20 years, my brothers-in-arms answered that call of duty EVERY SINGLE DAY, without fail, without complaint, without enough money to sustain our loved ones we had to leave behind while we DID OUR JOB in every corner of the Earth. And for that service, we were given absolute assurance our so-called retirement benefits would be protected by law. The very law you shattered in your zeal to impress your Democratic cohorts in your back room deal–with the enemy. Yes, I said it. The liberal Democrats are an enemy to the American people and our Nation. Your lack of judgement and eagerness to compromise on the backs of us who protected you is sickening. Congressman, you and every Republican that voted for injuring military retirees have engaged in a complicit, sordid affair with the Democrats who’s objective has always been to dismantle the military. By climbing into their bed on this issue, you have confirmed you are absolutely no better than they and have proven it with your vote.

Congressman Ryan, the audacity which you display is noteworthy, but to unceremoniously snatch earned money from a small group that has added so much more value than the paltry $6B you looked to “save” which is all smoke and mirrors and you know it, is reprehensible and insulting.

We have, despite the hardships, meager salaries and harsh conditions, have performed with honor and excellence…in silence, which is something most members of Congress have no idea about doing. Our job approval was, is and always be better than yours. We knew our mission and we got it done, then handed it off to a new generation in better shape than we found it.

Your ability to look us in the eye, take money from us apparently there was ZERO, other source of waste within the federal government that you could have recovered this money from…right, got it, while simultaneously holding your hand out to beg with passion for our cash is stunning. Your actions have proven you do not have the tremendous intellect you’ve sold the American people on. I say, with all seriousness, Congressman, what you lack in intellect and spinal rigidity, you make up for in cajones.

I hope you and your cowardly, Republican “colleagues” hear a message from me loud and clear. You will NEVER receive another cent of financial support from me. Further, if you happen to be at a Capitol Hill dinner or at a K Street cocktail party with RNC Chair Reince Priebus, Rep. Ron Barber, Sen. Jeff Flake or Sen. John McCain, I would be honored if you communicate with them that I am launching an effort to ensure NONE of you traitorous “representatives of the people” ever receive another vote from a military retiree. Remove me from your contact lists.

Obama to hammer home shutdown message at construction company –

President Obama will hold a series of events in the coming days to highlight the consequences of the government shutdown.

The events will hammer home the White House’s argument that it is Republicans who are preventing the government from reopening, White House aides say. They will also portray Speaker John Boehner R-Ohio as unwilling to buck a “faction” of the Republican caucus.

On Thursday, the president will appear at a local construction company that has benefited from federal loans. While there, he will highlight the real-world consequences of a shutdown, while casting blame for the crisis at the feet of House leadership.

…granted, there’s plenty of blame to share, but I lay this squarely on the shoulder of Obama. He and his Democrat Party wanted exactly this, betting on the media locking their collective lips squarely on Obama’s ass. The level of ass sucking by the media is unbelievable. They are a disgrace to the profession of reporting the news. They’ve become Obama’s personal propaganda arm, and the Congress wants to make sure that they are the “only ones” authorized to be journalists. What an absolute failure of government, and the liberal media again, give democrats a pass.

It was the Democrats who held a super majority for two years and still have yet to even pass a budget hello!. It was the Democrats who then wasted $800B on Obama’s “Stimu-less” despite 80% of the people opposing it. It was the Democrats who then cut the military budget by $400 Billion, or 25% of their operating budget during war time, in 2010. It was the Democrats who then passed Obamacare behind closed doors, and told us to pass it to find out what’s in it, despite the American people opposing it. Make no mistake, the Democrats own the Fiscal Cliff and just like Richard Nixon, Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan, George HW Bush, Bill Clinton & George W. Bush—Obama will also get credit for the economy & tax rate under his watch.

Republicans have only one choice: to hold him accountable.

Day 2 of the government shutdown, and look out the window. The sun is still shining, and the sky is still blue. The birds are chirping.

The Great Government Shutdown is not that big a deal, even for the government. The federal civilian workforce includes 2.9 million bureaucrats. Out of that, only 800,000 are being furloughed, or just 27%. Even for these workers, the shutdown just amounts to a paid vacation for a few days.

Just like the overballyhood sequester, average Americans won’t notice any change in their lives at all. But for those you who are offended and indignant by the shutdown, or who know somebody who is, I can tell you how to fix it.The Real Reason for the Shutdown.

The government is shut down for only one reason. Barack Obama and the Democrats wanted a shutdown. That is because Obama and the Democrats are so certain that the public will blame the Republicans. And they are certain of that because your dopey neighbors keep telling pollsters that the Republicans are at fault.

…of Mexico.

A “three-layer security line 140 miles from southern border aimed to fight drug, human trafficking” into Mexico.

Now there’s a fine “how-you-do” for you. This is absolutely outrageous.
Why are we not doing more with OUR southern border.
You know, to maybe fight drug and human trafficking coming in from Mexico.

That would be a great plan.

Instead, they offer us amnesty for illegal aliens, promises of a fence, and more enforcement.
Once again, the idiots in Washington, living in their own little shit hole, ignore the American people and do whatever the hell they want to do.

When the hell is enough, enough?
Fire all these bastards!

Obama Administration Considers Plan to Bolster Mexico’s Southern Border
Three-layer security line 140 miles from southern border aimed to fight drug, human trafficking

Obama administration and Mexican government officials recently discussed creating a three-tier security system designed to protect Mexico’s southern border from drug and human traffickers, according to U.S. officials.

The border control plan calls for U.S. funding and technical support of three security lines extending more than 100 miles north of Mexico’s border with Guatemala and Belize. The border security system would use sensors and intelligence-gathering to counter human trafficking and drug running from the region, a major source of illegal immigration into the United States.

According to the officials who discussed the U.S.-Mexican talks on condition of anonymity, the Mexican government proposed setting up three security cordons using electronic sensors and other security measures along the southern Mexican border, along a line some 20 miles from the southern border, and along a third security line about 140 miles from the southern Mexican territorial line.

The plan would be funded in part through the Merida Initiative, a U.S.-led anti-drug trafficking program that has involved nearly $2 billion in U.S. funds.

Border security was a major topic during the visit to Mexico last month by Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, U.S. Customs and Border Protection Acting Commissioner Thomas Winkowski, and Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Assistant Secretary Alan Bersin.
