In the US: end “birthright citizenship”

Because, after all, if it’s good enough for Harry Reid, it’s good enough for me.

It’s also apparently good enough for Louisiana Senator David Vitter:

Vitter happened to quote from another figure who advocated for the end of birthright citizenship: Harry Reid.

In 1993, Reid introduced S.1351, called the Immigrant Stabilization Act.  As you can see when you click the link, this bill was proposed solely by Reid himself, fully credited.

Reid said then, in a 1993 speech:

If you break our laws by entering this country without permission and give birth to a child, we reward that child with U.S. citizenship and guarantee full access to all public and social services this society provides. And that is a lot of services.

Reid is entirely correct.  Vitter agrees.  And so do I, wholeheartedly.  Reid continued:

Is it any wonder that two-thirds of the babies born at taxpayer expense in county-run hospitals in Los Angeles are born to illegal alien mothers?”

No wonder at all.  True then and true now.  Want proof of Reid’s words?  Here it is:

Reid later verbally regretted the move in 1999.  That was because he realized he was moving closer and closer to more true power in DC and his seniority in the Demorat Party helped immensely.  Demorats counseled him to walk back his earlier remarks.  Also, Nevada became flooded with illegal Mexicans, a firm expanding base of Demorat voters who filled the mandatory two-pronged ideal: 1) ignorant and 2) needy, not independent.

And nothing smells better to a Demorat than another ignorant, needy, Mexican voter.

Demography is prophecy.  As such, we are well on our way to turning the Left Coast into what Victor Davis Hanson calls “Mexifornia.”  That is to say: purposely “importing” the same ignorant mindset that has turned Mexico into the southern country from which people have, for decades, wanted to escape.  DC is purposely importing unskilled, uneducated and disease-ridden illegals into the United States.  For one reason only: votes.

When illegal children began flooding our southern border in huge waves roughly two years ago, is it any surprise whatsoever that diseases the US hadn’t seen in any kind of significant numbers shot skywards?  TB?  Pertussis?  Swine flu?  Dengue?  Measles? All over the US?  DC purposely took those children and hid them in communities all around the states, refusing to tell anyone what they had done and where they had stashed those children, in order to hide them.  Then it lied about the statistics.

Like Vitter, like the younger Harry Reid, I too support the end of “anchor babies” and birthright citizenship.

The 14th Amendment says:

Amendment XIV

Section 1.

All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside. No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.

Section 2.

Representatives shall be apportioned among the several states according to their respective numbers, counting the whole number of persons in each state, excluding Indians not taxed. But when the right to vote at any election for the choice of electors for President and Vice President of the United States, Representatives in Congress, the executive and judicial officers of a state, or the members of the legislature thereof, is denied to any of the male inhabitants of such state, being twenty-one years of age, and citizens of the United States, or in any way abridged, except for participation in rebellion, or other crime, the basis of representation therein shall be reduced in the proportion which the number of such male citizens shall bear to the whole number of male citizens twenty-one years of age in such state.

Section 3.

No person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice President, or hold any office, civil or military, under the United States, or under any state, who, having previously taken an oath, as a member of Congress, or as an officer of the United States, or as a member of any state legislature, or as an executive or judicial officer of any state, to support the Constitution of the United States, shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.

Section 4.

The validity of the public debt of the United States, authorized by law, including debts incurred for payment of pensions and bounties for services in suppressing insurrection or rebellion, shall not be questioned. But neither the United States nor any state shall assume or pay any debt or obligation incurred in aid of insurrection or rebellion against the United States, or any claim for the loss or emancipation of any slave; but all such debts, obligations and claims shall be held illegal and void.

Section 5.

The Congress shall have power to enforce, by appropriate legislation, the provisions of this article.

But: does the 14th absolutely guarantee birthright citizenship?

No European country does this, and much of Europe is either based upon actual, perceived or wished Socialism.

Some people think the 14th Amendment actually allows Congress to end “birthright citizenship” once and for all.

The 14th Amendment only commands citizenship to persons born on US soil to parents who are not citizens of a foreign country.  It does not command “anchor babies” or “birthright citizenship.”

Jeremy Buck writes cogently:

RUMOR: The 14th Amendment guarantees citizenship to children born to parents illegally in the U.S.

FACT: The current law that grants automatic citizenship to children born to illegal aliens is Section 301 of the Immigration and Nationality Act, 8 U.S.C. § 1401, which uses language similar to the 14th Amendment, regarding persons born in the United States and “subject to the jurisdiction thereof.” Critics argue that automatic birthright citizenship could be changed by revoking the statute.  Others say it would require a constitutional amendment because they believe the 14th Amendment requires birthright citizenship. However, nobody can say what the 14th Amendment means until the Supreme Court interprets it.  The court has not done that (The 19th century case – United States v. Wong Kim Ark – that some outlets are reporting concerned a legal Chinese immigrant).

The Birthright Citizenship Act would amend the Immigration and Nationality Act – not the constitution – to consider a person born in the United States “subject to the jurisdiction” of the United States for citizenship at birth purposes if the person is born in the United States of parents, one of whom is: (1) a U.S. citizen or national; (2) a lawful permanent resident alien whose residence is in the United States; or (3) an alien performing active service in the U.S. Armed Forces.

And there you go.  Just a modicum of logic used.

I say: end automatic “anchor babies” and birthright citizenship.”

Leftists will squeal like stuck pigs.

Because: there goes their ignorant and needy voting base.

Hillary: put her in handcuffs now

US-POLITICS-CLINTONIs this a face that resonates with Millennials and teen voters?

Hillary is a serial liar, and has been lying for years.  I believe she truly lacks the capability to tell the truth, even when it would tend to save her.

But it’s too convoluted now.  And it’s way too late to save her, or even remotely think about saving her.  She is beyond saving just as she is beyond telling the truth.  The truth is, first, relative, and it is — as she would tell you — in the eye of the beholder.  There is no Real Truth, there are only shades of the truth and the precipice of the truth.  The truth is a concept to be wrapped and folded and cloaked and hidden away, aided and abetted by the Leftists populating today’s general American Media Maggot newsroom which is, by the way, bleeding readers and viewers.  [As an aside: gee, I wonder why?]

With that preface, take it away Trey Gowdy:

Trey Gowdy: Hillary Clinton wiped her server clean

by Lauren French

Hillary Clinton wiped “clean” the private server housing emails from her tenure as secretary of state, the chairman of the House committee investigating the 2012 terrorist attacks in Benghazi said Friday.

“While it is not clear precisely when Secretary Clinton decided to permanently delete all emails from her server, it appears she made the decision after October 28, 2014, when the Department of State for the first time asked the Secretary to return her public record to the Department,” Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.), chairman of the Select Committee on Benghazi, said in a statement.

But does no one read the next two paragraphs?

Clinton was under a subpoena order from the panel for all documents related to the 2012 attacks on the American compound there. But David Kendall, an attorney for Clinton, said the 900 pages of emails previously provided to the panel cover its request.

Kendall also informed the committee that Clinton’s emails from her time at the State Department have been permanently erased.

PERMANENTLY ERASED.

In law enforcement, this is called an “admission.”  An admission is the first step towards a confession.

The only thing left to be done, in truth, is for Hillary Clinton to be “perp-walked” in front of a bevy of ENG hacks adrip with stark lights and the AMM jostling and bumping and shouting at Hillary.

Wouldn’t that be just grand?

OBAMA CAPITULATES TO IRAN

U.S. Caves to Key Iranian Demands as Nuke Deal Comes Together

by Adam Kredo

Limited options for Congress as Obama seeks to bypass lawmakers

LAUSSANE, Switzerland—The Obama administration is giving in to Iranian demands about the scope of its nuclear program as negotiators work to finalize a framework agreement in the coming days, according to sources familiar with the administration’s position in the negotiations.

U.S. negotiators are said to have given up ground on demands that Iran be forced to disclose the full range of its nuclear activities at the outset of a nuclear deal, a concession experts say would gut the verification the Obama administration has vowed would stand as the crux of a deal with Iran.

Furthermore, Iran is laughing:

Iranian Negotiator Stresses Withdrawal of Powers from Past Stances in N. Talks

TEHRAN (FNA)- Director General for Political Affairs at the Iranian Foreign Ministry and nuclear negotiator Hamid Baeidinejad said on Wednesday that the western powers have withdrawn from their previous positions in nuclear talks with Tehran.

“The other side has withdrawn from its positions compared with the past, otherwise we wouldn’t have stood at this point and stage in the talks at all,” Baeidinejad told reporters in Tehran on Wednesday.

Yet, the Iranian negotiator stressed that certain issues have still remained unresolved between the two sides, including the removal of sanctions.

Read that again: Iran wants no sanctions at all.  Any bets on Obama keeping the sanctions in place?

And again, Obama bones Israel:

US Declassifies Document Revealing Israel’s Nuclear Program

By Ari Yashar, Matt Wanderman

Obama revenge for Netanyahu’s Congress talk? 1987 report on Israel’s top secret nuclear program released in unprecedented move.

In a development that has largely been missed by mainstream media, the Pentagon early last month quietly declassified a Department of Defense top-secret document detailing Israel’s nuclear program, a highly covert topic that Israel has never formally announced to avoid a regional nuclear arms race, and which the US until now has respected by remaining silent.

But by publishing the declassified document from 1987, the US reportedly breached the silent agreement to keep quiet on Israel’s nuclear powers for the first time ever, detailing the nuclear program in great depth.

The timing of the revelation is highly suspect, given that it came as tensions spiraled out of control between Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and US President Barack Obama ahead of Netanyahu’s March 3 address in Congress, in which he warned against the dangers of Iran’s nuclear program and how the deal being formed on that program leaves the Islamic regime with nuclear breakout capabilities.

Another highly suspicious aspect of the document is that while the Pentagon saw fit to declassify sections on Israel’s sensitive nuclear program, it kept sections on Italy, France, West Germany and other NATO countries classified, with those sections blocked out in the document.

“Suspect”?  Are you kidding?

I’m truly thinking that our very own president is an anti-Semite.  Why?  Because actions speak oh-so-much louder than words.

Barack “Neville” Obamalain.

Obama Successful In Uniform

Operation Choke Point:

Operation Choke Point GraphicBut it doesn’t simply involve “payday lenders.”  Those who say that are lying.  Operation Choke Point involves much, much more.

So: what is it?

It’s an attempt by Mr Barack Hussein Obama to turn himself into Putin, an immured dictator, and to turn this country into one ruled by Imperial Fiat, with Obama as anointed dictator.

Obama Imperial KingIt’s a “work-around” to oppose businesses that Leftists don’t care for.

It works like this:

Various banks contact various businesses who have loans through said banks, and tell them they can no longer work with them.  Fiscal relationships that have held for, say, a decade, no longer count.  Specific businesses find themselves abandoned by their lenders.  They can no longer keep accounts there, ask for loans, or even be associated with said banks.

Because those banks have been leaned-on by the federal government under Barack Hussein Obama.

The federal government has said to those banks and lending institutions:

“If you continue to associate with these businesses, you will find yourselves under not just yearly audits, but quarterly audits or more.  These audits will not be circumspect; they will be rapacious and onerous.  We will pull out the Federal Speculum.  You will be on the receiving end of a Federal Douche.  With alarming specificity.”

Barack Hussein Obama has ordered this “work-around” directly from the White House, in order to drive those businesses with which he objects into the ground.

Those businesses would include gun stores, ammunition stores, fireworks sales, government grants, home base charities, tobacco sales, travel clubs, surveillance equipment and more.

None of these stores or businesses or entities are illegal.  They operate in the clear under laws that don’t obscure their existence.  They do, however, happen to “offend” the current administration.

Obama’s ‘Operation Choke Point’ Seeks to Destroy Sectors of Private Lending Industry

by Michael Patrick Leahy

Breitbart News has learned that in 2013 the Obama administration launched an under-the-radar project, ‘Operation Choke Point,‘ which is designed to destroy three sectors of the private lending industry: third party payment processors (“TPPPs”), payday lenders, and online lenders. 

Furthermore, from Breitbart:

FDIC Chairman in Hot Seat Over Operation Choke Point

by Michael Patrick Leahy

Martin Gruenberg, Chairman of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, will be in the hot seat Tuesday afternoon. He’ll be facing the Oversight and Investigations Subcommittee of the House Financial Services Committee as it holds a hearing on the FDIC’s role in Operation Choke Point, the Obama administration’s under-the-radar project designed to destroy several industries (payday lending, firearms dealers, pawn shops) by “choking off” their banking relationships.

And there you go: payday lending, firearms dealers, ammunition stores, pawn shops.

Focus on this: firearms dealers, ammunition stores.  Businesses that deal with the core Bill of Rights.

BILL OF RIGHTS As DominoesThe Bill of Rights and Constitution that Mr Barack Hussein Obama would care to eliminate wholesale, because its pesky writings get in the way of his supremacy.

And now you have the crux of the biscuit.

“When we pass laws and make them legal, but the FDIC, through their activist bureaucrats, try to put them out of businesss under the cover of darkness that’s not American and it’s beyond the control and the charter given [the FDIC] by Congress,” Duffy told Fox News on Monday.

FDIC chairman comes under fire during ‘Operation Choke Point’ hearings

FDIC Chairman Martin Gruenberg came under fire Tuesday at a House subcommittee hearing over allegations that Operation Choke Point, a controversial federal law enforcement program, abused its authority by cutting off funding for targeted businesses.

During one exchange, Rep. Sean Duffy, R-Wisc., suggested Gruenberg step down as head of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation after Gruenberg was unable to answer questions about employees involved with Choke Point as well as specific allegations the agency overstepped its authority.

Under Operation Choke Point, banks and other financial institutions were reportedly pressured to cut off accounts for targeted businesses that included gun stores, casinos, tobacco distributors, short-term lenders and other businesses.

Critics claim the program — involving the FDIC, Justice Department and other agencies — was used to squeeze legal companies that some politicians considered morally objectionable.

But the final paragraph summarizes appropriately:

Wise said questioning the chairman of the FDIC is a good start, but the problem doesn’t end there. “We know that it doesn’t just stop with the FDIC. This is a program that includes the CFPB, FDIC, Department of Justice and may lead all the way up to the president,” he said.

I never thought my government would be seeking ways to enslave its citizens.

I never thought my government would make every attempt to seek “work-arounds” to laws extant, in order to actuate a George Orwell society.

I never thought my United States would do this.

It is doing it now.

Ask of every candidate: “what is your take on Operation Choke Point?”

That will reveal quite a bit.
