Do Sacramento Politicians have any Right to Boycott Arizona?
Does Los Angeles?
Where does any municipal, city, county, state, city council or public employee of the taxpayer get the authorization to decide that THEIR personal political ideologies can foster a unilateral interstate commerce strike on Arizona and upon private US citizens?
Nobody asked for my vote. Did they ask you?
On the other hand 70% of the Arizona citizens beg for relief from the anarchy taking place in their state from the effects of an open border.
Think how easy it would have been for Obama to raise his chin high and say he "understands their frustration" and he would be sending help to Arizona to uphold his oath of office to defend the laws of this nation.
Instead the Democrats in Congress refused Senator McCains request to send 6,000 troops to secure the border.
A president takes an oath to uphold laws and keep our borders secure.
Obama has not kept his oath.
Obama turned this security issue into a political response which fueled racial discord and division instead.
When asked he could not even respond that a 'boycott' of Arizona was wrong.
This guy continues to be the divider and not the uniter.

Do Sacramento Politicians have any Right to Boycott Arizona?
Thursday, May 27, 2010
(1)States have inherent power (subject to federal preemption) to make arrests for violation of federal law.
(2)Because it is ordinarily unreasonable to assume that Congress intended to deprive the federal government of whatever assistance States may provide in identifying and detaining those who have violated federal law, federal statues should be presumed not to preempt this arrest authority. This Office’s [of Legal Counsel] 1996 advice that federal law precludes state police from arresting aliens on the basis of civil deportability was mistaken.
(3) Section 1252c does not preempt state authority to arrest for federal violations.
snip: Sec. 1252c. Authorizing State and local law enforcement officials
to arrest and detain certain illegal aliens - b) Cooperation
The Attorney General shall cooperate with the States to assure that information in the control of the Attorney General, including information in the National Crime Information Center, that would assist State and local law enforcement officials in carrying out duties under subsection (a) of this section is made available to such officials.
Apparently Eric Holder hasn't read the Department of Justice's own findings either.
Why are the Obama people saying Arizona has no authority to do the Feds job when there is clear policy giving Arizona the inherent power to do so?
Why has this Obama Administration used this US security, economic, and safety issue as a potential "racist" issue?
Why have these race-baiting-agitators not read the Bill they condemn?
Why have the federal laws not been changed if enforcing immigration law is 'racist'?
Why has behavioral word modification successfully nudged ‘illegal’ to be, or not to be, ‘undocumented‘?
Why is Arizona's law "Unconstitutional" per the Obama maybe crowd when racial profiling is prohibited in it, and violation of Fed Law is not being preempted?
Why isn’t California’s OWN Immigration Law (PENAL CODE SECTION 833-851.90 834b ) ‘potentially’, discriminatory?
Why won't the Federal Government do their job to secure the borders and cooperate?
Why doesn't the Fed want local and State assistance in doing their job?
Why do people who don't know their jobs, nor do their jobs, still have their jobs?
Why don't we just open the borders since there doesn't seem to be a logical PC way to identify people who have crossed illegally?
Why have we communicated to 'radical terrorists' we are not sending troops so come on in?
Why are illegals now immigrants and no longer aliens?
Why are batteries of leftist lawyers working night n day to find some way to take away States Sovereignty and find in favor of America law breakers?
Why are the Fed's so intent on protecting lawbreakers while condemning law makers trying to protect their citizens?
Why are public political unilateral entities allowed to enact purposeful, Hurtful, economic sanctions against Arizona and it's private citizens?
the Why -
WHYs of the lefts War on America
... gottah wonder when Obama will have the DOJ redefine this destructive invasive security issue as the overtheborder contingency operation.

So, besides the 83 plus professed Progressive lawmakers in Congress, founded in 1991 by socialist Bernie Sanders, we find out today that we have a group of law enforcers called the Progressive Police CHIEF Association meeting with Eric (The- I've glanced at it) Holder to discuss the Arizona Immigration law.
I don't know 'bout you but anytime I see progressive in a sentence or a title now I shudder.
These Chiefs, who have organized themselves obviously by ideology, told Holder that having to determine whether a person is in the United States illegally will break down the trust that police have built in communities and will divert law enforcement resources away from fighting crime.
If that happens, " we will be unable to do our jobs," said Los Angeles Police Chief Charlie Beck. "Laws like this will actually increase crime, not decrease crime."
Tucson Police Chief Roberto Villasenor said the requirements of the new law are so burdensome that "we doubt the federal government can even handle the numbers of people we will bring to them" on immigration status.
Last I read being in the country illegally is still 'a crime'...and determining that status is not a diversion from fighting crime since the requirement to even ask for legal status is if one has committed some crime already.
It is not explained how "laws like this" will increase crime but it is clear that "being unable to do their job" should go to those who, don't legislate from political police forums, and can do the job of enforcing our nations laws.
The Obama troops continue to gather in conference in it's War against what the majority of Americans want and we continue to see just how deeply entrenched these tentacles of radical resistance to our values have become.
These Progressive Police Chiefs do not represent the majority of Police Organizations- yet they are the ones that are chosen as the immigration "law enforcement" spokespeople by Holder.
As to - the requirements of the new law are so burdensome that "we doubt the federal government can even handle the numbers of people we will bring to them"
...well, how about plugging the holes on the borders and get the invasion down to a handleable number?
It is totally irresponsible to shrug a national burden off and allow the problem to get even bigger. Instead, Let's just give up.
Imagine if these Progressive Police Chiefs were in charge of the gulf's oil spill - it's to burdensome- the millions of gallons are just not handleable - everything we've tried to plug the hole hasn't worked - the volume will eventually dissipate. Ignore it.
What is next?... Well, we're not going to enforce some laws because the Correctional Institutions won't be able to handle the number of people we would bring to them...but we expect crime to go down.

Attorney General Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut received the Democratic Party's nomination last night for the United States Senate despite his lies about his military record.
Rather than own up to his past lies like a real man he pulls out the ole politician trade words "I may have misspoke"...I used "a few misplaced words".
To say you served in Vietnam when you didn't isn't a few misplaced words. It's a LIE.
He should fit right in with the rest of the dishonorable lieing stolen valor Democrat Senators like Kerry and Harkin.
San Francisco's, David Chiu, wants to allow illegals to VOTE.
S.F, who is already breaking Federal law by instituting a sanctuary city, now wants the illegal 'disenfranchised' non-citizens to have a say in how their kids will be taught in schools.
I would guess - probably
press 1 for democrats,
press 2 for social justice,
press 3 if for some reason you need to hear this in English.
Nancy Pelosi, House Speaker for the Democratic Unconstitutional Progressive Party (DUPP), wants to merge States and religion.
Pelosi to merge and urge Churches to turn their practitioners into guilt ridden slaves to Government Nudging.
You have to tell people from your pulpit what is good for them, she says. To those sitting there in congregations who are against legal immigration laws you have to tell them they are therefore against the manifestation of living the gospels.
Now if you follow our State givin' progressive social gospels we will reward you with special loans to green up your churches through our new faith based Environmental Protection Agency Bribery Department.
The EPA, headed by one of those Obama One World Marxist Czars, Carol Browning, is just itching to join forces with the likes of the thousands of Reverend Wright/ Pfleger churches out there.
If you don't think there are thousands and thousands of radical churches out there waiting to go political bent for a government buck then just plug in words like "social justice" - "churches" - "IAF" into your fav. search engine.
The Alinsky Marxist "IAF" rooted churches alone are staggering in numbers.
Remember one of Obama's quotes: "As an elected public official, for instance, I could bring church and community leaders together easier than I could as a community organizer or lawyer.”
Obama also wrote that doing so would be "a powerful tool for living the social gospel."
Now these progressive social engineers are working on bringing the separation of Church and State together.
You have to wonder if we'll get our evil Christmas trees back and will the free willed churches who resist be added to the endangered species list.
John Morton, the ICE big guy Boss, delivers his message to Arizona.
I won't do my job because it's bad government.
With 11 million illegals already here John I would say you sure haven't done your job anyway.
John must be waiting for comprehensive immigration reform...btw, the left keeps saying that.
We need comprehensive immigration reform.
Well what the heck does that mean if not following the laws, closing borders to invasion and finding ways to curb the lure?
This Marc Lamont Hill, a frequent fast talking pro socialist Castro lover on Fox News, Lies about Arizona's school book ban. (ever notice Marc's are usually Marx?)
The books being referred to are filling kids heads with racial hatred, segregation and revolution.
The New Law says there no longer will be kids taught from teachers and books that:
1. Promote the overthrow of the United States government.
2. Promote resentment toward a race or class of people.
3. Are designed primarily for pupils of a particular ethnic group.
4. Advocate ethnic solidarity instead of the treatment of people as individuals
I guess any blue blooded Guevara luvin' commie would find offense in these restrictions to free speech but I have a feeling that you get a bunch of them
together in a theater and they shout FIRE...like Arafat calling on one million children to join the ranks of ethnic cleansing. One wonders if Lamont has ever seen a kids Palestinian Math textbook where subtracting Jews from equations is the norm.
Marco writes that " stories of rogue ethnic studies instructors" are 'unsubstantiated' and untrue.
The stories are substantiated' and true, Marc.
These text books under question inspire revolution- teach kids that Mexico was stolen by white occupiers and that the US is still occupied - and these texts teach that these kids heroes should be the likes of Fidel Castro, Che Guevara, and other anti- American Communist mentors.
Generational ethnic indoctrination of hate in our schools.
Lamont goes on to say that even if such stories support an argument for regulating or reforming ethnic studies programs, Arizona has gone to far by eliminating ethnic studies altogether.
Another lie- or the man is like the rest of this Obama crew who doesn't bother to read laws.
The law ( HB 2281) specifies:
This section shall not be construed to restrict or prohibit…
(3.) Courses or classes that include the history of any ethnic group and that are open to all students, unless the course or class violates subsection A.
(4) Courses or classes that include the discussion of controversial aspects of history.
(5) Nothing in this subsection shall be construed to restrict or prohibit the instruction of the Holocaust, any other instance of genocide, or the historical oppression of a particular group of people based on ethnicity, race or class.
The man is either not honest or his, and others, reading comprehension needs work:
Nothing in this subsection shall be construed to restrict or prohibit the instruction of ...the historical oppression of a particular group of people based on ethnicity, race or class.
History is ok. It's the revolutionary, racist, segregationist, over-throw of US Government, ethnic teachings that are now prohibited Marc.
READ THE BILL.
One has to begin to wonder how many generations of molded minds these society changers can keep right on pouring lies into without the conditioned liberal recipient doing his/her own research and breaking free to think on their own and recognize truth.
If we are to ever succeed in taking our country back then we have to take our children back.
Then we have the Democrats giving a standing ovation to a foreign Leader on our soil who condemns Arizona's immigration crack down (by Governor Jan Brewer with 70% State approval rating) and lectures us on trying to stop his countries source of Billions of dollars that his illegal trespassers send to Mexico.
Mexico has provided maps on "How To" best cross the border and Calderon's Mexican Government certainly wouldn't want that investment compromised. If the income stopped they might not be able to afford the 2-10 year prison terms they give anyone caught illegally in their own Country.
As I've wrote before - BILL MEXICO - for the USA costs of illegal immigration and see how fast Cadleron&Inc put some troops on his border.
In the Snow Mobile News- Polaris wipes out a Wisconsin town of American workers to move the Company to sunny Mexico. Five bucks says they won't be boycotted.
Then we have Texas who removes Thomas Jefferson from American History textbooks for the next 10 years.
Bet he won't be back. I wonder who the revisionists took out 10 years ago?
That's social gospel "Change" for ya.
Lastly, and not least, Snow and Collins show Scott Brown the Democrat-way.

AZ utility board member responds to LA boycott over SB1070
posted at 2:55 pm on May 18, 2010 by Ed Morrissey
The Los Angeles City Council voted to boycott the state of Arizona over its new immigration-enforcement law, and now the Arizona Corporation Commission has responded. Gary Pierce, one of the commissioners chosen in state-wide elections to the utility regulation panel, notes that Los Angeles gets about 25% of its power from Arizona producers. If the City of Angels really wants a boycott, Pierce offers his services to help, as he explains in a letter to Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and copied to Hot Air:
(also via: gatewaypundit)
Dear Mayor Villaraigosa,
I was dismayed to learn that the Los Angeles City Council voted to boycott Arizona and Arizona-based companies — a vote you strongly supported — to show opposition to SB 1070 (Support our Law Enforcement and Safe Neighborhoods Act).
You explained your support of the boycott as follows: “While we recognize that as neighbors, we share resources and ties with the State of Arizona that may be difficult to sever, our goal is not to hurt the local economy of Los Angeles, but to impact the economy of Arizona. Our intent is to use our dollars — or the withholding of our dollars — to send a message.” (emphasis added)
I received your message; please receive mine. As a state-wide elected member of the Arizona Corporation Commission overseeing Arizona’s electric and water utilities, I too am keenly aware of the “resources and ties” we share with the City of Los Angeles. In fact, approximately twenty-five percent of the electricity consumed in Los Angeles is generated by power plants in Arizona.
If an economic boycott is truly what you desire, I will be happy to encourage Arizona utilities to renegotiate your power agreements so Los Angeles no longer receives any power from Arizona-based generation. I am confident that Arizona’s utilities would be happy to take those electrons off your hands. If, however, you find that the City Council lacks the strength of its convictions to turn off the lights in Los Angeles and boycott Arizona power, please reconsider the wisdom of attempting to harm Arizona’s economy.
People of goodwill can disagree over the merits of SB 1070. A state-wide economic boycott of Arizona is not a message sent in goodwill.
Commissioner Gary Pierce
The BOLD in the Commish's letter is mine...
A pdf file of the letter can be downloaded here from the Commissioner website.
Obviously LA won't seek other forms of electrons any more than it will stop draining Northern California's water supplies....
Villaraigosa, L.A.'s Mayor, was chairman of the UCLA MECHA Chapter "Por La Raza todo. Fuera de La Raza nada". (Everything for the Race - Nothing outside the Race).
So perhaps this racist Villaraigosa will put his revolutionary social justice convictions on the line and send buses for the 400,000 plus illegals that are costing Arizona 3 billion a year and take care of them? Ya think?
People need to wake up and look at who and what they have put into offices of control and what is happening to the cities and the states in which these destroyers rule.
Arizona has serious security problems that they are trying to deal with. They can't rely on the Obama people to deal with it so they have to act on their own to protect their citizens.
All Arizona has done is to duplicate a federal law enabling them to do what the responsible Federal government won't do.
This War on America attitude from the Obama left continues to divide our country.
Mr. Obama, it is not a joke, do your job and secure our borders and stop encouraging people like the "Villaraigosa's" to threaten the economy and peace of a sister state.
Obama, regarding what he calls the Party of NO: "For all the things we've gotten done despite the unified, determined opposition of one party, imagine how much farther we could have gotten if I'd gotten a little help," he said.
Obama challenges the 'just say no crowd' to explain WHY doing nothing would be better for America.
Well I am a part of the American "just say no crowd".
In fact I am part of the "just say HELL NO" crowd because we certainly can imagine how much further Obama could have gotten without opposition.
What we need is more obstruction to Obama's transformation. Not Less.
I made a Hell NO list once that I could add much more to in determined opposition.
I will not have children being indoctrinated and modified in our schools.
I won't join the ranks of any Obama unionized proletariat working party.
Take Obama's, to each his ability capped, job and shove it.
My grandchild will not be forced into Americorps brown shirt servitude.
My freedom of speech and information will not be controlled by leftist localism.
My Constitution will not be changed without Amendment.
My path to information will not be stifled and silenced by threats of government retribution.
I will not be forced by Government to participate in a socialist health Ponzi scheme.
I will not be nudged into government behavioral modifications and taxed for my Pepsi sins.
I will no longer give up freedom for security.
I will not belong to the Global new World order.
I will not be dictated to by UN standards.
I will not agree to Obama's decree of too little government.
I will call a terrorist a terrorist.
I will never trade liberty in for what's good for me decreed and controlled by government.
I will not surrender choices.
My right to bear arms is my protection from invasion of tyranny.
My right to fail is my learning process.
My ability to succeed or fail is self-determination and not regulation.
I am an individual and not a brothers keeper of a collective body.
I will not participate in the Marxist brick by brick removal of capitalism and the opened pathway to communism.
I will call a socialist a socialist.
I will be judged by U.S. Law and not International or Sharia Law.
International climate change agreement controlling Financial markets thru global government must not be signed.
Diversity does not mean that my own differences and objections will not be tolerated.
I will no longer fear any label that allows political correctness to silence me.
I will not have Czars with UN_American values transforming America.
I will no longer be fooled by the words "social justice".
I will not have a President who is dishonest about where he is taking America.
I share sacrifice with those whom I choose, I will spread the wealth through consumerism...If I want redistribution I will go to a garage sale.
The one thing Obama said that is certainly accurate is that if he had just a little more help: ..."we'd be in a deeper world of hurt."

Governor Jan Brewer (R-Ariz.) addresses Obama's joke at the recent White House Correspondents' Dinner where Obama took aim at Arizona's immigration law:
Obama joked: "We all know what happens in Arizona when you don't have ID -- adios, amigos."
Governor Brewer targeted Obama's joke. "It's fair to ask whether he intends to be the Commander-in-Chief or the Comic-in-Chief."
"While the president is making wisecracks and playing racial politics, some groups have suggested that Arizona be punished for enforcing laws that our federal government has failed to enforce -- that is misguided at best," Gov. Brewer said.
"Our purpose today is to help the rest of the nation understand the crisis which confronts our state," Gov. Brewer. "Our nation's government is broken, our border is being erased and the president apparently considers it a wonderful opportunity to divide people along racial lines for his personal political convenience."
Securing our borders is not a joking matter.
Governor Brewer announced A Web site aimed at "educating" the nation on the state immigration law at SecureTheBorder.org
I applaud Governor Brewer.
It is this kind of courage that is needed to fix our unsecured borders.
Obama's own Attorney General, Eric Holder , hasn't even read the Arizona law but is quick to refer to it as a bad law. Maybe Unconstitutional.
What about the same worded Federal Immigration law, Eric? or are you still looking into the definition of 'radical islam' and 'terrorist?'
It is fair to say that neither republicans nor democrats have protected our borders, or enforced federal laws, for decades. And decades.
You never hear either side having disputes over the Northern border.
Politicians handle the security of our southern border as if it is a 'racial' issue rather than an economic and security issue.
The democrats USE the southern border issue as a race card for Hispanic voting base and the republicans back off security enforcement so the divisive racial tactics won't hurt their own Hispanic voter numbers.
The borders go unsecured so the politicians can get themselves votes and or avoid labels.
SHHhhhhh, Don't Ask, Don't Expel...
Obama's amnesty talk is nothing more than trying to secure millions of new votes and expected thank you dollars to his base while labeling opposition.
Amnesty was tried before without first securing the border.
The result, after Reagan gave amnesty to millions of law breakers, is 10-11 million more illegals entering the country and ignoring our laws.
The result, of continued unsecured border, hundreds of people kidnapped.
The result, drug wars spilling over the border, thousands of people dead.
The result,US citizens terrorized and murdered, border patrol shot and killed.
National security ignored while Obama jokes and divides.
The security of our borders should not be a divisive political game.
No one is whining that Federal Immigration Law is racist, yet suddenly in an election year Arizona's law is racist?
We all have to show various forms of identification paperwork all of the time.
People need to start using common sense.
If the Federal Government won't do it's job then it is the duty of officials of each state to serve and to protect it's citizens.
Governor Brewer is not only correct in her actions to protect her state and citizens but she is mirroring the federal laws already on the books and saying to the Obama Administration that if you, and past Administrations, won't do your job to protect our borders then Arizona State will have to.
It bothers me greatly that the democrats create this carrot n stick agitation of humans as their dependent pawns. If it weren't for race and abortion platforms democrats would simply come up with some other bitterness growth to plant, nuture, and harvest to ensure the country stays divided and themselves in power.
Democrats ask, Who's gona be your motel maid, or be the dishwashers, pick yer veggies, mow your lawn? Under democrat description they warn us that no one else will do the job.
These jobs will only be done by people who cross our border? This isn't 'profiling'?
Using this present democratic argument, then, these endangered jobs must therefore be positions that only illegals will be forced from engaging in....
because certainly there is no danger that legal immigrants will lose these democratic-profiled class-specific jobs 'that no one else will do'.
Then we have republicans saying, We can't send 11 million people back to their country. It's impossible.
Improbable, but not impossible.
It is pretty simple really.
ENFORCE the LAW.
It is against the law for employers to hire illegals.
Illegals know they can get jobs here so they come here.
Now, why employers are required legaly to ask for ID but law enforcement can't ask is really strange. Are employers racist for asking for ID?
It is obvious by the reported numbers, in the millions, of 'illegals' that Employers are not asking for ID or don't care to follow the law.
So Enforce the law and FINE the employers.
When the Fines exceed the under the table labor profits and employers stop hiring illegals then the LURE to come here will trickle down.
When illegals can not find a job, like 17 million other Americans, perhaps a great deal of the 11 million will return home naturally.
As to the health care costs of illegals - BILL Mexico for it's citizens.
Perhaps they will pay more attention to their northern border if it is costing them more than ignoring or encouraging the problem.

The following is a partial transcript of the House Judiciary Committee hearing with Attorney General Eric Holder. This portion contains the exchange between Rep. Ted Poe, R-Texas, and Attorney General Eric Holder over whether Holder has read the Arizona immigration law:
REP. TED POE: So Arizona, since the federal government fails to secure the border, desperately passed laws to protect its own people. The law is supported by 70 percent of the people in Arizona, 60 percent of all Americans and 50 percent of all Hispanics, according to The Wall Street Journal/NBC poll done just this week. And I understand that you may file a lawsuit against the law. It seems to me the administration ought to be enforcing border security and immigration laws and not challenge them and that the administration is on the wrong side of the American people. Have you read the Arizona law?
ATTORNEY GENERAL ERIC HOLDER: I have not had a chance to -- I've glanced at it. I have not read it.
POE: It's 10 pages. It's a lot shorter than the health care bill, which was 2,000 pages long. I'll give you my copy of it, if you would like to -- to have a copy.
Even though you haven't read the law, do you have an opinion as to whether it's constitutional
HOLDER: I have not really -- I have not been briefed yet. We, as I said, have had underway a review of the law. I have not been briefed by the people who have been responsible -- who are responsible for that review.
POE: Are you going to read the law?
HOLDER: I'm sure I will read the law in anticipation of that briefing. I know that they will put that in front of me, and I'll spend a good evening reading that law.
POE: Well, I've gone through it. And it's pretty simple. It takes the federal law and makes it -- enacts it in a state statute, although makes it much more refined in that it actually says in one of the sections that no state or subdivision may consider race, color, national origin in implementing the requirements of any subsection of this law.
It seems to outlaw racial profiling in the law. I know there's been a lot of media hype about the -- the legislation. Do you see a difference in the constitutionality of a statute and the constitutionality of the application of that statute? Do you see there's a difference in those two?
HOLDER: Sure, there is a potential for challenging a law on its face and then challenging a law as it is applied. So there are two bases for challenging a particular statute.
POE: And when do you think you will have an opinion as to whether the law is constitutional?
HOLDER: I've used this term a lot, but I think this is -- I think relatively soon. I think that we have to -- there has been much discussion about this. The review is underway. The Department of Justice along with the Department of Homeland Security is involved in this review. And I would expect it -- our view of the law will be expressed relatively soon.
POE: You have some concerns about the statute. And it's -- it's hard for me to understand how you would have concerns about something being unconstitutional if you hadn't even read the law. It seems like you wouldn't make a judgment about whether it violates civil rights statutes, whether it violates federal preemption concepts if you haven't read the law. So can you help me out there a little bit, how you can make a judgment call on -- on that, but you haven't read the law and determined whether it's constitutional or not?
HOLDER: Well, what I've said is that I've not made up my mind. I've only made -- made the comments that I've made on the basis of things that I've been able to glean by reading newspaper accounts, obviously, television, talking to people who are on the review panel, on the review team looking at the law.
But I've not reached any conclusions as yet with regard to -- I've just expressed concerns on the basis of what I've heard about the law. But I'm not in a position to say at this point, not having read the law, not having had the chance to interact with the people who are doing the review, exactly what my position is.
Click here to watch the video.
So Holder, who has been on Obama News Networks (ONN's), has already stated it was bad law- and probably unconstitutional - and he hasn't even read the law.
Knowing that he was coming to this briefing he hadn't even spent an evening to read it; let alone the actual 30 minutes it would have taken to read it upside down.
His concerns have come from reading newspapers, watching TV, and talking to people who apparently don't like the law.
He can't give an answer yet because the Obama review stink tank hasn't come up with an answer to why they can make it bad law.
Yet, like Obama, he gets on TV and fires up racial divide and anger. And he hasn't even read the law.
You expect this garbage politics from the Jacksons and Sharptons who leach a living off race inflammation but in all my years I have never seen a more divisive crew crippling America as does this Obama Government.

You can also make suggestions for making cuts for the following weeks.
At minimum it is somewhere You can go and submit your own spending cut ideas--like getting rid of - oh I don't know - like 50 million dollars for the study of calories in mooselip burgers or that zillion dollar tunnel Xcrossing for literate turtles.

"The American people will never knowingly adopt socialism, but under the name of liberalism they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program until one day America will be a socialist nation without ever knowing how it happened."
– Norman Thomas, American socialist
And we have another one to add to the Obama radical List, folks.
Elena Kagan, American Socialist.
There's just an endless source of these America changers.
Does Obama know ANYONE who isn't radically left of left?
The socialist Change-machine just gets worse everyday.
I read that about 5% of 'ambiguous' laws reach the Supreme Court for review.
Here is a taste of what Obama's society organizers think about ambiguity:
Obama's Regulatory "czar" Cass Sunstein:
"There is no reason to believe that in the face of statutory ambiguity, the meaning of federal law should be settled by the inclinations and predispositions of federal judges. The outcome should instead depend on the commitments and beliefs of the president and those who operate under him...and...The executive should usually be permitted to interpret (law) as it reasonably sees fit" (1)
Under Sunstein there would be no need for a Supreme Court to interpret law.
Now they know they can't get some of this Nut-case's regulations to stand up if their coming dictatorial regulations are shot down by The Supreme Court so the extreme tyranny deck continues to be stacked.
Kagen (who is also in Obama's health-care camp) believes in "Presidential control of administration, in critical respects (expanded dramatically during the Clinton years) making the regulatory activity of the executive branch agencies more and more an extension of the president's own policy and political agenda. She argued that an increased presidential role in regulation "both satisfies legal requirements and promotes the values of administrative accountability and effectiveness." (2)
In fact a large part of Kagan's Constitutional teachings at Chicago law School involved Presidential Law, Presidential Administration, Labor law and the very same ideological Sunstein Marbury Nudge: The Executive's Power to Say What the Law is.
Kagan and Sunstein, also co-authored an 18 page pamphlet together (3) on Remembering "TM" (Justice Thurgood Marshall), and know each other well from their days at Chicago's law School. I read that it was Kagan who got Obama his lecturing position there.
Peas of a Chicago pod.
Another factor putting Kagan at the top of Obama's 'change' agenda is that she echos the view that the Court’s primary role is to “show special solicitude” for people that a judge has empathy for.(4)
It was Senator Obama who feels, 'The role of a justice is to favor the weak over the strong. In the most difficult cases, the determining factor is not what the law in question says, or what the Constitution says. In those difficult cases,' " what matters is "what is in the judge's heart."(5)
Social Justice? Empathy? Ignoring the law? Casting aside the Constitution favoring class?
Sounds more like 'unequal justice'.
Kagan wrote in her Princeton thesis, ("To the Final Conflict: Socialism in New York City, 1900–1933”) “Americans are more likely to speak of a golden past than of a golden future, of capitalism’s glories than of socialism’s greatness. Conformity overrides dissent; the desire to conserve has overwhelmed the urge to alter. Such a state of affairs cries out for explanation.”
Socialism's greatness? WHERE has it ever worked? How's that wonderful socialism working out for you Greece?
These people Obama has gathered around him all speak the same altering Marxist language and yet, they, and their media counterparts, refuse to even admit who and what they are.
...Such a state of affairs cries out for explanation...
Kagan is cloaked in folksy distraction instead. She plays softball and poker - the kind of person you can have a beer with.
Nothing about Kagan's socialist beliefs on Obama's 'truth meter' IPod...
On the demise of historical socialism's greatness and a hand slap to bickering factions Kagan wrote:"... :( a sad but also a chastening one for those who, more than half a century after socialism’s decline, still wish to change America … In unity lies their only hope."(6)
Kagan also wrote of hope that the future growth of liberalism would “be marked by American disillusionment with conservative programs and solutions, and that a new, revitalized, perhaps more leftist left will once again come to the fore.”(7)...note: numbered sources are in below comment area.
..."that a new, revitalized, perhaps more leftist left will once again come to the fore"...gee- I wonder what is left of left and who are the gatekeepers to be?
Well, the leftist left is here people and it's soldiers (as Kagan's radical MARXIST (8) brother calls himself) are uniting for power in every branch of our government to change America.
Have negative polarized labels like "Party of NO" succeeded in silencing resistance to this take over?
The question now is will the Republican Senators be the Party of NO DAMNED WAY! or give barely audible lip service and continue to allow our American foundation to be transformed by these radicals as they whine that they are in the minority and how difficult it will be to vet Kagan's beliefs because of her lack of legal decisions...and, of course, 'touchy' floor protocol on personal questions.
If the outnumbered Patriots had just shut up and gone home because things were difficult there would be no America today.
Here's the protocol. Do YOUR dam duty and Protect and Preserve the Constitution.
“We’re not grooming you to be Wall Street lawyers. We’re grooming you to change the world.” - Elena Kagan -2008 [John R. Kramer Outstanding Law Dean Award from Equal Justice Works]
Kagan memo: “[A] select panel convened by ACOG could identify no circumstances under which [the partial-birth] procedure … would be the only option to save the life or preserve the health of the woman.” This, of course, would be disaster — not the less so (in fact, the more so) because ACOG continues to oppose the legislation."

United States Supreme Court Judge Sonia Sotomayor was a member of this anti-America lovin' revolutionary movement and was confirmed anyway?
La Raza's commandantes are Fidel Castro, Hugo Chavez, Evo Morales?
A struggle against imperialism and capitalism?
White racist people?
Che Guevara's domino theory?
"Where we now stand is stolen, occupied Mexico"...?
La Raza, the northern front of a Latin American revolutionary movement?
The teacher, Ron Gochez, is a 'teacher' of "social justice".
Is this the kind of teacher you want in your children's school?
Are your children 'safe' going to schools where this indoctrination hatred is spewed?
Is this the type of radical teacher our federally funded taxes are supporting?
Funny how the leftist Media won't show you what is truly going on in our Country by actual extremists like this one while they photograph Seniors in lawn chairs and tell us how dangerous they are.
Only in ObamaLand.
I realize that this "Meg loves Van Jones" News is about a year old (but as the GOP seems not to learn while continuing to pick it's RINO candidates) it deserves repeating what with Meg Whitman running for Governor of California. A position she refuses to debate with other candidates at the upcoming Convention, btw.
One question I would like to ask her is if she still admires Van Jones?
While on a "Climate Change Cruise" (need I say more ?)
Meg says she got to Know, Obama's ousted Pinko Jobs Czar, Van Jones, very well.
Although Van Jones thinks Republicans are assholes
Meg thinks Jones is very articulate.
The goal of Van Jones, the self described revolutionary communist, uses the lucrative green climate platform as 'tiny push steps' towards transforming America's whole society, in stages, into one governed by Leninist/Moa/ principles and rule.
Apparently Meg, who thinks anti-capitalist Jones is very passionate and exactly right, is a HUGE Fan of the disenfranchised socialists revolution [now franchised and funded with your Stimulus dollars] and thinks Jones has done a marvelous job 'out there'...in California.
"You have to wonder whether her reservoir of common sense has deserted her completely..."
I have to question Meg's ability to surround herself with people who support America, let alone California.
As Meg has been heard to say over and over, The People Deserve Better.

Once again, showing pride and patriotism to America and the American Flag is consider to be "incendiary" if displayed.
We can now add Morgan Hill, California Live Oak High School to the long list of people, places, and things that find the American Flag to be 'disrespectful', in need of apology, and removal.
On May 5th, [ or Cinco de Mayo, Not an American HOLIDAY btw) 5 students were approached by the Assistant Principal, Miguel Rodriguez, who asked two of them to remove their American flag bandannas. The boys complied, but the 5 were asked to accompany Rodriguez to the Principal's office where they were told they had to turn their American Flag T-shirts inside out or to leave the school.
Keep in mind here that other students wearing red white and Green Mexico colored Flags were not brought to the office and told to remove their T-shirts or to wash their painted on flags and colors off of their faces.
Nor were they asked to leave the school.
Several of the Mexican kids interviewed said that wearing American Flags on "their holiday" was "disrespectful"..."it's our day, the only day we can show our spirit.".."They need to apologize".
One of the boys, Daniel Galli, said, "They said we could wear it (American Flag) on any other day, but today is sensitive to Mexican-Americans because it's supposed to be their holiday so we were not allowed to wear it."
The 5 boys refused at that time to turn their shirts inside out.
Galli said, “I’m not going to apologize. I did nothing wrong… I went along with my normal day. I might have worn an American flag, but I’m an American and I’m proud to be an American.”
Some continue to expect apologies for being Americans and for it's symbols that might upset sensitive spirits.
How insensitive can you be to intrude on "the ONLY DAY" that some American-people feel they can celebrate being on American soil... right along side an American Flag T-shirt?
Such an insult!

I've had a few emails asking where I'm at? (ok- only 2)
I have been taking a break for quiet awhile.
The corrupt jackboot Democratic Congress and Senate shoving down our throats a constitutionally defective stranglehold on freedom to choose, and forcing this Federal mandated cradle to grave Enslavement to Government Cost Effectiveness Act, was just to much for me.
If at first you don't succeed - bribe bribe, bribe again.
Needed a break from the Obama Cold War transformation of our Country.
For a man with words such as - "What I will not ALLOW" - Obama has shown time and again that he could care less what Americans want, think, or need.
It's all about what Obama will allow. It's all about Obama and his philosophy.
Look to those you surround yourself with for the character of the man.
Only progressives, globalist, Marxist, communist, socialist, anti-capitalist, and radicals are recruited for Obama's "change" tank.
Obama's fundamental transformation of America by America hating fundamentalists.
Thank goodness for all of those who haven't taken a break and will not ALLOW Obama's 'change' without a fight.
