Buncha Chumps, The Bible Told Me So, And Wanna Guess Who Will Be Footing The Bill For Illegals’ Benefits? *Open Thread*


So it is done. Well, officially as of today when Emperor Obama signs his Executive Action embracing five million illegals, who apparently are all “fruit pickers” and “make our beds,” to be welcome in our country with work permits, access to Social Security, and so much more.

And to that, Charles Krauthammer had this to say:

Yep, all those idiots who have been working hard to come to this country legally, who have spent lots of money and time to get in line, have all been made chumps of by this President Dictator. It is truly astonishing the depth and breadth of Obama’s speech, much of which Krauthammer covers above (and managed to not get distracted by O’Reilly’s questions).

Krauthammer does make some great points, but he is not in Congress. Here is what one of our favorite House Members, Trey Gowdy, has to say about Obama’s pronouncement:

Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC), chair of the House Subcommittee on Immigration and Border Security, released this statement following the announcement of the President’s executive action on immigration:

“The thread that holds the tapestry of our country together is respect for and adherence to the rule of law. The law is our greatest unifier and our greatest equalizer. Attempts to undermine the law via executive fiat, regardless of motivation, are dangerous. President Obama may seek a fight with Republicans in Congress, but in reality he is fighting with founders of this republic and the carefully crafted separation of powers.

“Whether previous administrations acted outside of constitutional boundaries is not license to do the same. The President himself recognized his inability to do what he just did – 22 separate times. This action is not only detrimental to any chance in the new Congress for a sustainable, long-term solution on immigration, but also to the bedrock of our system of government— respect for the rule of law.

“When the executive branch acts outside of constitutional boundaries the legislative branch must use all powers afforded it to respond and restore the constitutional equilibrium. This is not a Republican or Democrat issue. Rather, it should hasten the resolve of all Americans to make certain her elected officials honor the foundational document they swore to protect and defend.”

There is not a doubt in my mind that Obama has acted lawlessly, and has thumbed his nose at the Constitution, our Founders, our legal citizens, and legal immigrants. Gowdy has made that case beautifully.

And how about the reaction from the other side of Congress? Senator Ted Cruz had this to say:

Moments ago, President Obama announced he would unilaterally grant amnesty to millions of people who have come to our country illegally.

I have one question: Why is President Obama making it easier for immigrants to come to our nation illegally rather than legally?

His actions are not only unconstitutional and in defiance of the American people who said they did not want amnesty in the 2014 elections, but they are also unfair to every immigrant who has come to our nation legally.

We are all the sons and daughters of immigrants who dreamed of opportunity in a nation where if you worked hard and played by the rules, you could achieve anything.

We can’t let one President abandon that dream for us all.

No, we cannot. We cannot allow a President to become a Dictator, an Emperor, determining which laws will be enforced, which will not, and making laws up on his own.

Of course, a number of Border State Governors have something to say about Obama’s pronouncement, too. Governor-elect Greg Abbot made this point. From BizPacReview.com:

[…] “President Obama has circumvented Congress and deliberately bypassed the will of the American people, eroding the very foundation of our nation’s Constitution and bestowing a legacy of lawlessness,” Abbott said. “Texans have witnessed firsthand the costs and consequences caused by President Obama’s dictatorial immigration policy and now we must work together toward a solution in fixing our broken immigration system.”

For now, Abbott is still the attorney general in Texas and he said he’ll look to the courts to provide the solution.

“Following tonight’s pronouncement, I am prepared to immediately challenge President Obama in court, securing our state’s sovereignty and guaranteeing the rule of law as it was intended under the Constitution,” Abbott said.
[…] (Click here to read the rest.)

Go get him, Governor-elect Abbot. As the AG of a major border state which has had to deal with illegal aliens for some time, you are in a unique position to take on this Administration.

Here’s the thing about this Pronouncement from King Obama: it is going to cost us a ton. As it is, Illegal aliens cost US Taxpayers $113 BILLION a YEAR (h/t Stuart Varney). Yeah, you read that right. And it is going to cost us more. From the Daily Caller:

The illegals will get work-permits and Social Security cards, and will be required to pay taxes, according to Cecilia Munoz, the former immigration lobbyist who is now a top Obama aide.


Most households of illegals have very low income, and pay little in taxes. For example, in 2011, roughly 22 percent of immigrant households — both legal and illegal — were classified as living in poverty. In contrast, only 13 percent of American households were in poverty.

However, once illegal immigrants are enrolled in the tax system, they’re would be entitled to EITC payments
The payments may be huge, and will rise each year.

According to the Internal Revenue Service, two parents with three or more children would receive up to $6,143 in 2014 if they earn less than $46,997.

A family with two kids, and an income of $20,000, would receive $14,590 in taxpayer funds this year alone.

Parents who earn less than the threshold would get $3,305 if they have one child, and $5,460 if they have two children. […] (Click here to read the rest.)

Because we aren’t being taxed enough already to pay for Obamacare. These numbers are just staggering. Welcome to Obama’s America.

And no doubt, Obama and his equally lawless Democratic Congress-people are going to demand, despite having lost the election in a BIG way, for Republicans to get over it and just bury the hatchet. I have just the advice for Rep. Boehner and Sen. McConnell, courtesy of The Band Perry:

And there you have it. Don’t be chumps, Republicans. Stand up for the Constitution and the rule of law. I am sure there are more than a few Scriptures you can use, too. Just sayin’.

This is an Open Thread.

    Great Piece as usual Amy…Thank for your research.
    We are going to be paying a much higher price than I think anyone actually realizes.
    First off the 5.3 million Illegals that they keep spouting is such an under estimated number. Just think back to 2008 when they were talking about Obama care and how the 20 million Illegals would not be eligible. Illegal border crossings have escalated tremendously since Obama was sworn. Way less then 5% have been deported, and in the last several years its been less than 1%.
    The 1.3 Billion a year is a figure that is several months old. The figure doesn’t take into account the cost of all the Illegals in prisons for Crimes, nor the recent costs of housing, feeding and educating all the Illegals that Obama has nicely housed in deportation centers and army bases(which is several million a day).
    I am still trying to figure out where the jobs will be coming from when we don’t even have enough jobs now for legal Americans, much less more Illegals. The 200 thousand jobs Obama says have been created is only 1% of the people who have had to leave the American workforce. Since 2009, 11.4 million Americans age 16 and over have left the workforce. In July 2014, there were 92,001,000 Americans, 16 and over, who were classified as “not in the labor force,” meaning they not only did not have a job, but they didn’t actively seek one in the last four weeks, due to not being able to find employment, or having run out of benefits.
    I do know that between Obamacare and the Amnesty Executive Order Obama just decreed our country is really screwed Economically.
    I truly fear what about the future of our country and what it holds for our children and future generations to come.
    Just some of my 2 cents…

    Again thank you Amy for all your work on this piece.

      Thanks so much, Kin!

      A correction though – I typed $113 Billion a year, not $1.3 billion. It is a huge difference. 🙂

      That said, I take your point abt illegals who are incarcerated, and what that is costing us on a regular basis. And of course, all those who have not been deported (I am still angry abt hearing a young woman saying that they want to be educated – YEAH, on OUR DIME!!!! WTH should we have to pay to educate another country’s citizens who BROKE THE LAW to come here?? This entitlement crap is really, REALLY, pissing me off.).

      Anyway – great points abt what our costs are, and how Obama has found a way to take even more money out of our pockets. It is really disturbing, and infuriating.

      • kinthenorthwest Says:

        Sorry about my misquote on you. That number is one that I have used in some posts for most of this year when talking amnesty. That is why I knew it had to have gone up, and that it did not cover the criminal expenses caused by Illegals, or the current cost of the new detention centers Obama created.

        The education crap really riles me the most. Go into almost any school district today that has to have ESL classes for Illegals, and/or anchor babies.
        ESL classes are maybe a dozen or so students with 2 or 3 fulltime aides.. Mean while American students are floundering in classes of 25, 30 or even more(even Kindergarten, 1st, 2nd and 3rd). Regular education teachers/classes are lucky if they get an aide for 1/2 an hour a day.
        ESL costs in most schools are at least 25% of school budgets, but in many of the areas with higher illegal populations ESL costs are over 2/3s of the school budget.

        Obama promised change, but I don’t think anyone expected the extreme changes Obama has done and is doing to our country.

        • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

          Oh, no problem – it happens, and easily when dealing with numbers! 🙂

          I bet the education piece DOES bug you. It is ridiculous what our school districts are having to do to appease people who are here ILLEGALLY. Every other country expects people to learn the language on their OWN time, not on the time of their own citizens. Our children are learning less and less thanks to these regulations.

          I am just so cranky abt how all of this plays out in our country, the manipulative use of Scripture by Obama, the emotional manipulations, and the flat out LIES of what Obama has done in terms of the border. It is just infuriating. GRRR.

          You ain’t only kidding abt the change, but his Democratic minions are all too happy with him and what he is doing.

    Good Article by ROY BECK Founder & President of Numbers USA on this Fiasco ( Just a snippet below).
    WORK PERMITS banned from his speech tonight but not from the Obama amnesty. DECEPTION?n a 2,200-word speech, he didn’t mention “work permits” or “work authorization” even once.
    Pres. Obama’s huge prime-time TV speech about his big fix of the “broken immigration system” somehow left out the fact that he would be rewarding millions of unlawfully present foreign citizens with three-year work permits to compete directly with struggling American workers.

    He hid the most consequential part of his big immigration “deal” from the American people.

    The President made it seem like the big change was that he was going to stop deporting illegal aliens who don’t have a big felony record. But officials already have acknowledged that the average illegal alien has almost no chance of being deported, anyway.

    He told us that if the illegal aliens stay here they have to pay taxes. But he forgot to say they would get work permits and be able to compete for any job in construction, manufacturing, service, programming or any other occupation. Or that they would get Social Security numbers to enable them to obtain all kinds of other documents that could embed them in America for life.

    He indicated that Americans who oppose his immigration “deal” for around 5 million illegal aliens might be guilty of religious and racial prejudice, and probably of violating the admonitions of scripture. But he didn’t tell the truth about his “deal.” He didn’t tell Americans about the work permits.

    • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

      Thanks for the link and info. How unusual for Obama to have lied by omission – not. Lying seems to be what he does best.

      And how ironic that HE is calling people racist considering his descriptions of illegal aliens as fruit pickers and maids as referenced at the top of the post.

      He is such a piece of work I can barely stand it. This whole thing has gotten me so mad precisely for the reasons Rep. Gowdy enunciated. It is tearing at the very fabric of the Constitution and nation. That SO many Democrats are so willing to throw the Constitution away and also abdicate their OATHS, says so, so much abt Democrats in general. What is says is NOT. Good.

    backtrack’s delusions of grandeur

  9. HELENK3 Says:


    what part don’t I understand. backtrack just made blacks expendable and their leaders say that is a good thing?

    • kinthenorthwest Says:

      The Hispanics have been screwing the Blacks in many big cities.
      In LA the Blacks has almost all of the Janitorial contracts, espeically for all the business buildings. Well about 20 or ??? years ago that all disappeared as one Hispanic company after another took over their contracts. From what I understand is that the Blacks were underbid by a ton.

      • HELENK3 Says:

        my son had his own construction co. he basically had to close down. he could not compete pay a fair wage, taxes and insurance against illegals who get paid low wages, no insurance and no taxes

        • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

          Oh, Helen – I am so sorry to hear that. That is just terrible.

          And that’s the thing that Obama and the Democrats continue to ignore. They are HURTING American citizens with their open border/amnesty mentality.

          Dangit – I hate to hear this for your son!

          • kinthenorthwest Says:

            What is sad Amy is that there are thousands upon thousands of stories like that.
            H3LL just look at the fast food places lately. Remember how it used to be lots of young kids working the evening and weekend shifts? I have had many teens tell me that those places already have enough help due to the influx of Hispanics.

    • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

      That is just it, Helen- these groups continually work against their OWN interests just because Obama has a “D” after his name. The black community has suffered tremendously under Obama, including what Obama himself said would hurt them – this amnesty thing – and yet, there they are! Standing right behind him, supporting everything he does!

      It just boggles the mind. At what point does one FINALLY take off the blinders and believe what their OWN eyes are telling them?? For me, it was 2008, but it seems no matter what, Obama will be protected. Stunning, and very sad, if you ask me…

      • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

        I should add, there are a few leaders in the community, and members of the community themselves, who do see Obama clearly, people like Sen. Scott, Col. West, Dr. Carson, Rep.elect Mia Love, et al. Just to be clear.

  10. HELENK3 Says:


    oh oh liars figure, but figures don’t lie
    number of jobs, number of illegal aliens

    • kinthenorthwest Says:

      H3LL the worse part is that they keep talking about 5.3 million..That number is way underestimated.

      • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

        No doubt. I don’t know why they think even 5 mil. sounds like a good number to the rest of us, but there ya have it.

  11. HELENK3 Says:


    the backtrack bunch really have that 1984 double speak down pat

    • kinthenorthwest Says:

      They are really getting good at double talk…Everyone still believes that the Shut Down was due to the Republicans.

      • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

        I think we can thank the MSM for that. They fed that crapola to the people, too many of whom bought it hook, line, and sinker. Same as they did blaming the Reps for Sequestration even though that was OBAMA’S idea…
