Opinion:Democrat governance: “the people be damned”There they go again” to paraphrase Ronald Reagan. Democrats are at it again, working to impose government action against “the will of the governed”. Once upon a time, such arrogant displays of despotic acts, would not have become believable.
Today, government by edict is a rule of the day for the Obama Administration and its dominating Democrat majorities in both houses. Liberals are becoming more desperate to cram their radical theories, ideas, and proposals down the throats of normal Americans who don’t share the liberal obsessions of today’s Democrats.
The latest outrage comes in another incredible memo within an arm of Homeland Security. An earlier memo cited as potential terrorists, those Americans who disagree politically with Obama – especially if those Americans are also veterans.
The latest memo “lists tools it says the administration has to "reduce the threat of removal" for many illegal immigrants who have run afoul of immigration authorities”.
In plain speaking, discovery of the memo reveals another scheme from liberal Democrats, to thwart public opinion and impose government actions a majority of Americans oppose. Anyone recall when “democracy” itself was aborted as a principle of government?
Discovery of the memo coincides with actions by Obama’s Justice Department’s assault on Arizona’s new immigration law – a law supported by over 70% of Arizonans. Key elements of the Arizona law were slapped down by a federal judge appointed by the Clinton Administration.
Pro-illegal alien demonstrators tried to vent their hatred in cities across the country – in Phoenix, at least 32 demonstrators were arrested. It is reported other activists who support alien illegals tried to create videos of law enforcement officers targeting Hispanics.
The law, of course, is aimed at illegal aliens, and “Hispanics” are not cited as its target. Serious concern about the flood of illegals focuses on growing numbers with roots in the Middle East and Asia. Such aliens are paying as much as $50,000 to be smuggled across the US border. Since such aliens are clearly not seeking menial jobs, their actual motivation is a question bearing on national security.
Who is putting up such large sums of money? What do they expect in return?
Still, Liberal Democrats shrug at such questions and push for amnesty despite what ordinary Americans want. Government crafting policy in direct conflict with the will of the people raises more serious questions.
The Democrat memo proposing back dooring amnesty, would grant citizenship for people who consciously chose to disobey American law. The dictionary says that’s “criminal”.
Top Political News:Obama Agents Conspiring: Amnesty for Illegals without having Congress Vote
With Congress gridlocked on an immigration bill, the Obama administration is considering using a back door to stop deporting many illegal immigrants - what a draft government memo said could be "a non-legislative version of amnesty."
The memo, addressed to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services Director Alejandro Mayorkas and written by four agency staffers, lists tools it says the administration has to "reduce the threat of removal" for many illegal immigrants who have run afoul of immigration authorities.
The memo suggests that in-depth discussions have occurred on how to keep many illegal immigrants in the country, which would be at least a temporary alternative to the proposals Democrats in Congress have made to legalize illegal immigrants.
Speaker defends troubled majority
Three months before what certainly will be brutal House elections, Speaker Nancy Pelosi is again vowing to defend “every grain of sand” of what she’s built in Congress and predicting this August will prove kinder to Democrats than a year ago.
The massive health care overhaul is hidden by a phony label: a “patients’ bill of rights;” Radical Wall Street reform is claimed to be “consumer protection.”
Playing defense will also be a big change for Pelosi and other liberals. The 2006 and 2008 campaigns, which built Pelosi’s power, were assaults on an established Republican order in Congress and the White House. Now in a punishing economic environment, the roles are reversed. If Democrats are to survive, aides predict the tough-minded Pelosi will face a painful chore: performing the triage needed when money runs low and old friends and allies must be cut loose to save those who have a better chance of winning. Ruthless politics on display as Democrats face having failed to govern with “the will of the people”.
GOP Succeeds in Turning back Liberal Legislative Assault in the Senate
Three months before his election, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) is finding his tactics on energy refom questioned by liberals as GOP operatives strategize how to defeat him this fall.
Campaign season is in full swing on Capitol Hill, playing a major role in stalling many high-profile bills. Republicans handed Reid his second legislative defeat of the week Thursday when they blocked what had been considered a bipartisan small-business bill.
Lawmakers negotiated into the evening to keep the measure moving, but there was no deal as of press time. The GOP voted as a bloc Tuesday to kill the Disclose Act, a priority of liberal activists. That measure would have required corporations and unions to report on their political activity, a proposal that had long enjoyed bipartisan support until this year.
The aura of campaign-trail politics was underscored by the presence of senior White House political adviser David Axelrod and Democratic consultant Paul Begala at a lunch with Senate Democrats on Thursday. In this charged atmosphere, Reid has had to juggle bills ranging from food safety to child nutrition to the Supreme Court nomination of Elena Kagan.
