Mr Obama: “fundamentally transforming the United States of America”

US and MEXICO Border DelineatorMr Obola (not unlike many in Islam who wish to convert us or kill us) told citizens precisely what he was going to do upon his election: “we are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America.”

And transform he has.  Charles Krauthammer illustrates but a few of the topics run-roughshod by Obama’s Executive abuse:

Make no mistake, Mr Obola is in the process of this action.

Obama makes no bones about saying he’ll unilaterally enable national amnesty for Mexicans:

Feds Getting Ready for Executive Action on Immigration

by Suzanne Gamboa

(Leon) Rodríguez’s agency (USCIS) will be front and center once President Barack Obama announces the executive action he’ll take on immigration. Obama said he would take executive action after the elections but before the end of the year.

“We’re going to be ready,” Rodríguez said. “Our agency will be shouldering the primary responsibility for executing whatever it is.”

Rodríguez declined to elaborate when he was asked by a reporter to give more details on what types of preparations he is making.  

Indeed; what kinds of preparations?  How about these types of preparations:

White House Punts on USCIS Request for ‘Surge’ of Immigration ID’s

by Charlie Spiering

White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest declined to address a Breitbart News report about a “surge” of immigration ID’s requested by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services.

When asked about the report at the White House Press Briefing today, Earnest referred Breitbart News to the USCIS for comment.

draft solicitation for bids issued by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) Oct. 6 says potential vendors must be capable of handling a “surge” scenario of nine million id cards in one year “to support possible future immigration reform initiative requirements.”

I’m sure you can do the mathematical political forecasting on that one.  As in: Imperial Obola Edict = get thy shit in gear.

The Washington Times already indicates Mr Obola is ready to open the proverbial illegal immigrant floodgates despite the concurrent problems of terrorism, Ebola and lesser-but-still-important diseases recently brought into this country (and previously eradicated with much effort) by illegal children:

EDITORIAL: Green cards on the table
President Obama lets slip his scheme for a permanent majority

by THE WASHINGTON TIMES

The White House intended to remain silent about its plans for immigration. Revealing a scheme to open the floodgates of amnesty would be disastrous on the eve of the critical midterm elections. But this is the gang that can’t shoot straight.

The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services on Friday threw open the door to as many as 100,000 Haitians, who will now move into the United States without a visa. Sen. Chuck Grassley, Iowa Republican, rightly and accurately denounced enabling Haitians awaiting a U.S. visa to enter the country and legally apply for work permits as “an irresponsible overreach of the executive branch’s authority.”

That was just the beginning. The immigration agency earlier this month had solicited a printer able to handle a “surge” of 9 million green cards “to support possible future immigration-reform initiative requirements.” In an ordinary year, about 1 million green cards are issued, and over the life of this contract the company is expected to produce up to 34 million cards, a figure representing an increase of the population of the United States by 10 percent.

The cards do not come with automatic voter registration, but that’s obviously what the scheme portends. President Obama’s promised “executive actions” to bring about this enormous wave of amnesty constitute a transparent and cynical ploy to expand the Democratic voter base, creating a permanent majority.

For those of you who just tuned in, let me open the door to the Department of Redundancy Dept:

“President Obama’s promised ‘executive actions’ to bring about this enormous wave of amnesty constitute a transparent and cynical ploy to expand the Democratic voter base, creating a permanent majority.”

A “permanent majority.”

So where did honesty and fairness and equality go, pray tell, Lefitsts?

Ah yes, that’s correct; it never existed.

The Washington Times pointedly continues:

In economic terms, importing millions of unskilled workers creates competition for the diminishing number of available jobs. Combine a flooded job market with the Democratic proposals for a doubling of the minimum wage to $15 an hour, and millions more American citizens will be without a job. Those who do have jobs will pay to provide federal freebies, from Obamaphones to Obamacare, to the formerly illegal aliens now with a green card.

As the recent influx of minor children over the southern border demonstrates, word of amnesty on the way travels fast. Handing green cards to those who cheated the system and entered the country illegally creates an incentive to millions more to follow in their path, collecting as many benefits as possible along the way. It’s a disaster in the making — indeed already here — for public health and national security, straining the welfare state to its limit.

This also brooks the question: what about the rest of America?  What if some various groups of Americans decide they will obey some specific and chosen laws and not others?  There will be precedent now, you see.

Most Americans want no part of this. A Gallup survey finds that 74 percent of Americans want the level of immigration to stay where it is, or reduce it. Mr. Obama has no support for his amnesty scheme except from those who want to transform America into a nation that no one would recognize. Voters can get to work on stopping the transformation on Nov. 4.

Further, since the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965, Congress has passed seven amnesties:

1. Immigration and Reform Control Act (IRCA), 1986: A blanket amnesty for over 2.7 million illegal aliens

2. Section 245(i) Amnesty, 1994: A temporary rolling amnesty for 578,000 illegal aliens

3. Section 245(i) Extension Amnesty, 1997: An extension of the rolling amnesty created in 1994

4. Nicaraguan Adjustment and Central American Relief Act (NACARA) Amnesty, 1997: An amnesty for close to one million illegal aliens from Central America

5. Haitian Refugee Immigration Fairness Act Amnesty (HRIFA), 1998: An amnesty for 125,000 illegal aliens from Haiti

6. Late Amnesty, 2000: An amnesty for some illegal aliens who claim they should have been amnestied under the 1986 IRCA amnesty, an estimated 400,000 illegal aliens

7. LIFE Act Amnesty, 2000: A reinstatement of the rolling Section 245(i) amnesty, an estimated 900,000 illegal aliens

But now?  Millions and millions of Mexicans.  Others will squeeze through too.  You know; people who belong to ISIS and al Qaeda and various and sundry marginalized groups who simply need more understanding and sympathy.

With that, apparently we require another amnesty?  The prior seven were somehow insufficient?

Mr Obola makes it clear that his fundamental transformation disincludes you, if you happen to be Caucasoid.  Parenthesis: you evil aged racists and sexists, no matter your age.  And your hated spawn.  End of parenthesis.

Yes.  Fundamentally transforming the United States of America.

Where is the airport?

Paro Bhutan Airport Landing, Cockpit Interior

Video from the interior of an Airbus A319, the craft is going to land at Paro, Bhutan.  Early in the video you can see the Jeppesen chart for Paro clipped to the window ledge of the pilot.  Final approach includes a very low hard right, then an even lower hard left.  All planes must perform a 180-degree pivot at the end of the runway to acquire the terminal.

My question early on: where is the airport?

Winter Kills, 1979

WK, Title Card

[The opening scene, utilizing a hand crafted $100,000 chess set.]

One of the greatest, most star-filled movies you’ve likely never seen, is William Richert’s 1979 film, Winter Kills, a terribly black comedy — but not a comedy — packed with a host of actors of great note (who mostly didn’t get paid, except for Richard Boone, up front).

It is also a film that almost didn’t get made, got shut down three times and went bankrupt, featuring a director who had never directed before, involving the Mafia, payoffs in envelopes, and produced by two men — Leonard Goldberg and Robert Sterling — who had made their money as dope dealers.  In fact, Goldberg was killed — handcuffed and shot in the head — in the middle of production of the movie because he failed to pay certain debts to the Mafia.  The other producer, Sterling, received a 40-year prison sentence for dope smuggling.

Intrigued yet?

WK, Jeff Bridges & Mob GuyPerhaps a little background on the film (37:04):

In Winter Kills, the premise involves the assassination of a president and his powerful father, much like Jack and Joe Kennedy, and how the killing and conspiracy played out.  The protagonist is Nick Keegan, played by Jeff Bridges.  Richert managed to acquire such stars as Elizabeth Taylor, John Huston, Toshiro Mifune, Ralph Meeker, Eli Wallach, Anthony Perkins, Sterling Hayden, Richard Boone and Dorothy Malone.  He also scored a major coup (at least for a neophyte director) with the acquisition of cinematographer Vilmos Szigmond (Deliverance, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, The Deer Hunter, among others).

WK, John Huston SpeakingThe actors involved provide performances that stick in my brain like many of those in Kubrick’s Dr Strangelove.

WK, Sterling HaydenSterling Hayden (all 6’5″ of him) as C.K. Dawson, in the incredible tank scene.

WK, Anthony Perkins as John CerruttiAnthony Perkins as the manic John Cerrutti.

WK, Richard BooneRichard Boone, who was known to never do a second take, portraying Keifitz.  And, as Richert indicated, was damned near falling down drunk 99% of the time, but still functional.

In this clip Jeff Bridges as Nick Keegan, son of one of the wealthiest men in the country, drives a Ford Pinto to meet with C.K. Dawson (Sterling Hayden) as he played “war games” with actual tanks, armored vehicles and live shot:

Here, Richert recalls working with Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Boone.  He remembers that Elizabeth Taylor became fixated on a leopard skin coat used in a scene that was eventually deleted.  She wanted it.  He initially refused but later relented.  When the film ran out of cash, the furrier came and repossessed the coat from Taylor.  He also tells about he and Sterling Hayden smoking weed openly in the Beverly Willshire Hotel restaurant.  Richert can certainly spin a yarn.

Worth watching and, for me, a journey back in time to appreciate a film that, at that juncture, was much more nuanced and problematic than I’d ever suspected.

Check Netflix, DVDs or other streaming venues for Winter Kills.
