Re-think: DON’T LISTEN TO PRICE ON AMNESTY!

Establishment House GOP’ers set on amnesty
Recently in this space, I included a view about the possibility of the Republicans in the U.S. House of Representatives passing a hybrid “Cromnibus” budget bill that would involve funding of the federal government until next October while still allowing Congress to defund Obama’s executive amnesty early next year.
Scratch that premise. I was very, very wrong.
The only immediate way to stop Obama — and Establishment Republican Speaker of the House John Boehner — is to send a short term “Continuing Resolution” funding bill to the Democrat–controlled Senate this week. The House should also send language attached to the bill that forbids use of any funds to go to any action that issues work permits, Social Security Numbers and quasi-legal presence to a single illegal alien.
Without a huge and immediate expression of vocal public outrage, the Republicans in the House who are in league with the Chamber-of-Commerce- controlled-Speaker have no intention of using their inherent power to stop Obama — or to preserve the Constitution.
How bad is it? When asked about the defunding, Boehner said he would not commit to bringing up a bill in 2015 to strip critical funding to the Department of Homeland Security when Republicans have control of both houses of Congress.
Little over a month since the election in which Republicans ran and won as pro-enforcement conservatives, the Republican chairman of the powerful House Rules committee, Pete Sessions of Texas, revealed last week that House Republican leaders intend to give permanent legal status to most illegal aliens in the country.
Sessions said that we may soon see GOP legislation ensuring that “not one person” who is in the country illegally and has not committed a violent crime is “thrown out.” Got that? No? Let me help: He means that immigration laws only apply to people who have already crossed our borders illegally or overstayed a visa and then killed, robbed or raped someone. Otherwise … “Y’all come. We have plenty of jobs and our schools, welfare systems and common language are doing just great. And we need more low-income Democrat voters!”
Thanks to Breitbart News, we know that Sessions also made it clear that House Republican leaders want to have a “well understood agreement about what the law should be and how we as communities, and farm communities, and tech communities, create circumstances where we can have people be in this country and work, and where not one person is quote ‘thrown out’ or ‘deported’ — where we do keep families together, but what we do is we do so under a rule of law of an understanding.”
The Republican leadership plan, according to Sessions: “even in our wildest dream, would not be to remove any person that might be here unless they were dangerous to this country and committed a crime … that was never even in a plan that I thought about.” Got it now?
On subverting the Constitution and starting the illegal executive amnesty ball rolling down a path to open borders, these Republican congressional leaders could easily be labeled “Obama-Republicans.” The vote on whether to fund Obama’s amnesty with a $1 trillion omnibus funding bill is going to happen this week. I am urging my Rep to vote “HELL NO.”
No matter their email alerts, recent posturing and their bombast, by close of business Friday, we will all know which side our own congressman is really on.
Something that must be repeated over and over until it is as important to and as well understood by the average American as ‘Dancing with the Stars:’ Once Obama issues a work permit and Social Security Number to an illegal alien, that process will likely never be undone. No “victim of borders” is ever going to see the process reversed. The Establishment Republicans and the liberal media would not allow it to happen. Honest.
Obama has already rented taxpayer-funded offices in Virginia and started the hiring process for federal workers to process his amnesty.
The time to stop this pathway to eventually swelling the Democrat voting rolls and a one-party America is today.
I would write more, but I need to call my congressman’s office.

Received here today: Legislative alert from the Cobb County Republican Women’s Club in Marietta, Georgia
“The U.S. House of Representatives is scheduled to vote on fully funding through September 2015, President Barack Obama’s executive actions, including amnesty for five million illegals. While the U.S.House of Representatives cast a symbolic vote earlier this week to block Obama’s amnesty plan, the real action lies in refusing to fund his amnesty program. Reports from various news outlets and from inside the beltway in Washington D.C. are confirming that John Boehner, Speaker of the House, is once again capitulating to Democrats and ignoring conservatives within the Republican Party. Boehner and other GOP leaders are afraid of shutting down the government and insist on passing a budget that is fully funded through the fiscal year.
It is urgent that your U.S. representative is contacted along with Boehner imploring them to only pass a SHORT-TERM funding bill that would allow the next Congress to defund Obama’s amnesty. It is Congress - not the Executive branch of government - that has the power of the purse. Based on the recent election results, it should be Obama and the Democrats who should be forced to compromise.”

10 minutes ago on the radio as heard here in Atlanta.
A self-described middle-Georgia farmer is on the Laura Ingraham radio show lamenting that Georgia has “one of the toughest immigration laws in the country” (we tried, but it isn’t “tough” unless it is enforced, which isn’t the case) and he and his fellow growers are now hiring much more legal labor. “Wages are going up” he tell Ingraham, “but my profits aren’t.”
He went on to explain that he needs more illegal workers…because “they work, ya know…?”
He was clearly working from a list of points he had been given, which was illustrated with his last interjection to Ingraham: “I agree with you 99% of the time…but what do we do with the 11 million?”
As usual, radio-patriot handled it all very well and explained that if we as a nation strive to “take care of the American worker”, the rest of it will take care of itself.
Conclusion? Enforcement works

GOP should listen to Price on amnesty
News for pro-enforcement conservatives: If you assumed that the Republican leadership in congress would have a courageous, unified and pro-enforcement ready-to-go response to stop Obama from further subverting the Constitution with his amnesty, there are a few things you should know.
Remember, Obama boasted of his coming amnesty command for months. The GOP wasn’t taken by surprise. It looks like the plan may be to see if Americans will be distracted enough by turkey, “Black Friday” and nightly “Ferguson R-Us” riots to not notice that GOP leadership has done little but unenthusiastically sputter.
And a large part of the plan is to not to offend the liberal media with any wild pro-Constitution talk.
There was an angry, corporate-funded “deferred action for all!” protest rally in Atlanta less than 24 hours after the emperor made his announcement last Thursday. Reminder: The goal is open borders.
How bad is it?
Word is coming out of the U.S. House of Representatives that leadership has plans to allow Obama to carry on with his amnesty. From multiple news outlets: “Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) revealed that Republican leadership, led by Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-Ohio), has no intention of resisting President Obama’s executive amnesty.”
“They acted as though the amnesty issue wasn’t even an issue. They said that the President is going to do what he’s going to do, and we are not going to get down in the mud with him. We are not going to engage, and what we are going to do is to talk about our positive solutions on jobs, the economy, education and manufacturing,” Bachmann said.
By the way, many illegal aliens amnestied by Obama’s lawless decree would be eligible for earned income tax credits (massive welfare), Social Security, Medicare and other public benefits. But they would all still be illegal aliens. Four million amnestied illegal aliens would cost taxpayers about $2 trillion over their lifetime, reports Heritage Foundation expert Robert Rector.
It gets worse. Breitbart News reports that “House Speaker John Boehner requested that President Barack Obama avoid making a “very public push” on immigration during the midterm primaries, according to White House Senior Adviser Valerie Jarrett.”
Breitbart continues: “Speaking to Chicago Sun Times Washington Bureau Chief Lynn Sweet, Jarrett claimed that the Speaker asked Obama to wait until after the primaries to publicly move with the immigration issue.
“As Sweet notes, the immigration issue during the primaries could have served to make fending off conservative challenges … more difficult.”
For the “I don’t care about politics” readers: Every crisis has a solution. The congressional solution to a rogue Marxist president surrounded by like-minded advisors bent on transforming the America over which they took power is to cut off his funding using the lawful “power of the purse.”
The current federal funding to run the government runs out on Dec. 11. The funding contest is to see who backs up, Obama or the Republicans. Generally put, if the GOP-controlled House sends a spending bill over to the lame-duck Democrat-controlled Senate that fully funds the federal government until the end of the fiscal year, (Sept. 30, 2015) Obama will have all the taxpayer money he needs to easily operate his amnesty for the illegal alien, future Democrat voters.
If the Republican House stands its ground and passes only short term funding to take the government into 2015 — when they will have control of both the House and Senate — they can all work together to ensure that legislation is passed making it impossible for the president to do his amnesty. If he vetoes the bill, parts of the government would shut down.
U.S. Rep. Tom Price (R-Roswell) has come up with a very convincing combination of the two scenarios above. It is being called “the Price Plan.” Price is the incoming chairman of the powerful House Budget Committee. Speaker Boehner should listen to Price.
The Republican leadership assumption is that A) Americans are too stupid to see that the GOP has the power to stop the amnesty; and B) too stupid to realize if there were any kind of shut-down, it would be because Obama wants amnesty for millions of illegal aliens much more than he wants to keep the U.S. government running.
Republicans should defer action on Obama’s illegal amnesty and re-take power. And voters should speak up.

Univision/Fusion anchor Jorge Ramos quoted in the December 1/8 2014 issue of TIME magazine.
I sent him a Tweet challenging him to defend this position on his live TV venue. Don’t hold your breath. For the record: I like Ramos personally and hope for the opportunity to finally defeat him on his ping-pong table…
“Then what had he meant by comparing the southern border fence to the Berlin Wall? “The taboo issue of an open border should be tackled. Not now. Politically it is impossible even to discuss that,” he said. “But I don’t see why we can’t have in North America the same immigration system that they have within the European Union.” Was there a limit to how far a journalist should go in advocating for the interests of his audience? “The limit is, I am a registered independent. I would never say to whom I vote,” he said. He also tried to separate his various roles. He never offers the same sort of raw opinions on the nightly news that he gives on his weekly Fusion show or in appearances with CNN’s Anderson Cooper, another blue-eyed silver fox, who calls Ramos “my TV twin.”

Gathering remarks from elected officials around the nation on Obama trashing the constitution with his illegal executive amnesty? Don’t overlook this one.
Below is a reaction/quote to the Atlanta Journal Constitution from Nathan Deal, the newly re-elected Republican of Georgia - where we have more illegal aliens than Arizona and where he says we spend more than $2.4 billion annually on the crime of illegal immigration.
“Anytime the legislative process is circumvented, we all should have concerns, and this is no exception. Based on the information being circulated in the news about the proposed order, I have reservations and further questions.”

ADDED 2:14 PM same day: It looks like WSB TV took the below news report video off of their site. And who could blame them?
ADDED: 3:00 PM - A welcomed call from a senior WSB editor tells us that WSB TV News will air a detailed correction on each broadcast time today in which the original report aired. No word on the future of Diana Davis…
ADDED 9:40 Wednesday AM, next day: : HERE http://www.wsbtv.com/news/news/local/state-senator-files-bill-prevent-illegal-immigrant/nh9k2/ is a link to the correction WSB TV News posted on Diana Davis’ false report.
Here is the video correction WSB TV News aired last night: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9FTzC3rMVK4
Is Atlanta’s WSB TV News reporter Diana Davis an official anti-enforcement activist reporter?
You be the judge. Watch the short video.
1) Georgia state Senator’s SB 6 ( see outline HERE ) does not stop “non-citizens” from obtaining a Georgia drivers license. That is the entire false premise of Diana Davis’ agenda-driven report. The bill says illegal aliens who are beneficiaries of Obama’s deferred action on deportation will not be allowed to obtain or keep a Georgia drivers license. Not being an American citizen does NOT prohibit anyone from getting a Georgia drivers license!
2) Charles Kuck is an immigration lawyer. But he is also vice-Chair of the rapidly anti-enforcement, pro-amnesty, tribalist GALEO Corporation . The AJC and other news outlets in Georgia and now WSB TV News omit that important attribution. See HERE for Kuck’s position. NOTE: The AJC “justice”-trained immigration reporter did it again yesterday, after repeated promises over the years from senior editors that the biased practice would stop: “Charles Kuck, a local immigration attorney who teaches immigration law at Emory University…” HERE
3) It is impossible to see how anyone could invent a more biased, incomplete and more intentionally false report on this common sense, life-saving legislation in Georgia than what Davis has done.
* Assuming that WSB TV News does a correction AND a separate story that contains an accurate portrayal of the facts involving the pending legislation in the Georgia Capitol, we will be happy to post that information far and wide.
You can contact WSB TV News reporter Diana Davis and her producers HERE
This is not the first time Davis has done this. Several years ago, WSB TV News was kind enough to interrupt the 6:00 news to air a correction to another story she got 100% wrong after asking me a direct question and reversing my face-to-face response.
One word? PEEEEEUUUUU!
SILENCE IS CONSENT.

SINCE 2012, REPUBLICAN-CONTROLLED GEORGIA HAS BEEN REWARDING ABOUT 11,000 DEFERRED ACTION (DACA) ILLEGAL ALIENS WITH DRIVERS LICENSES – OBAMA TRYING TO MAKE THAT NUMBER SKYROCKET !
* According to DHS, Georgia contains more illegal aliens than Arizona.
• In 2011, Republican Governor Nathan Deal put the estimate of the cost of illegal immigration to Georgia taxpayers at $2.4 billion.
• Obama’s threatened executive deferred-action-on-deportation-amnesty would reward several hundred thousand illegal aliens in Georgia with a federal work permit and a Social Security Number, which under current law would make them eligible for a Georgia drivers license and other public benefits.
• The current unemployment rate in Georgia is 7.9%
Our opinion: BOLD ACTION NEEDED! DO NOT DEFER TO OBAMA’S PRESIDENTS JUDGEMENT ON ILLEGAL AMNESTY AND GEORGIA DRIVERS LICENSES!
Below, we list several facts that legislators, reporters and voters in Georgia will need for the 2015 legislative process on SB 6 , The Georgia Road safety and Drivers License Integrity Act. (pre-filed November 17, 2014. State Senator Josh McKoon, sponsor.
Deferred action illegal aliens are still illegal aliens and DO NOT have lawful status:
*What Is DACA ( from USCIS)
“On June 15, 2012, the Secretary of Homeland Security announced that certain people who came to the United States as children and meet several guidelines may request consideration of deferred action for a period of two years, subject to renewal. They are also eligible for work authorization. Deferred action is a use of prosecutorial discretion to defer removal action against an individual for a certain period of time. Deferred action does not provide lawful status. HERE
* Deferred action is NOT requirement for states to issue drivers licenses!
From illegal alien lobby law offices;
States Grant Licenses to DACA Recipients“Because the rules governing eligibility for driver’s licenses vary by state, a grant of DACA does not provide access to a state driver’s license automatically. But otherwise-eligible DACA recipients who obtain an employment authorization document and a Social Security number have been able to obtain a license in almost every state.
The rules in most states either list deferred action specifically as meeting a lawful presence requirement or provide that an employment authorization document is acceptable to establish eligibility for a license. Like other driver’s license applicants, DACA recipients also must provide proof of identity and age, and also meet the state residence requirements, in order to obtain a license…” HERE
*Nebraska does not issue drivers licenses to DACA recipients.
Feb, 2014: “A federal judge has dismissed a lawsuit challenging the state of Nebraska for denying driver’s licenses to Dreamers who have received temporary authorization to stay and work in the United States. Smith Camp wrote in her ruling that there was “uncontroverted evidence” that the Nebraska DMV was following the state’s statute and issuing driver’s licenses and state identification cards only to people with a lawful status, as determined by the federal government and verified through the Systematic Alien Verification for Entitlements (SAVE) program.” HERE
* Headline: Mass. Governor-Elect Kills Deval Patrick’s Plan to Issue Drivers Licenses to Illegal Aliens HERE
* Headline: PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN 6 and AP) –
Residents living in Oregon illegally will not be eligible for drivers’ cards.“It is the first time that voters in any state weighed in on the driver’s license issue.
The law would have allowed immigrants and others to apply for drivers’ cards that could not have been used to vote, board a plane, get benefits or buy firearms.
KOIN 6 political analyst Jim Moore said the fate of Measure 88 represents a law, passed in the legislature, being killed by voters.
The measure was agreed upon by most politicians in the Legislature: Democrats and Republicans from rural-agricultural, suburban, and urban areas all supported it. But, even in heavily Democratic Multnomah County, it failed two-to-one…”
More than $600,000 was invested in the “yes” side, while under $100,000 was invested in the “no” side…” HERE
* OREGON - A Blue state, More ppl voted AGAINST drivers licenses for illegals than voted for winning Dem gov or senator in Oregon. HERE
*California has had a vehicle impound law for unlicensed drivers since 1995
California Vehicle Code Section 14602.6 - Vehicle Impoundment: Suspended, Revoked, or Unlicensed Driver: Hearing
“14602.6. (a) (1) Whenever a peace officer determines that a person was driving a vehicle while his or her driving privilege was suspended or revoked, driving a vehicle while his or her driving privilege is restricted pursuant to Section 13352 or 23575 and the vehicle is not equipped with a functioning, certified interlock device, or driving a vehicle without ever having been issued a driver’s license, the peace officer may either immediately arrest that person and cause the removal and seizure of that vehicle or, if the vehicle is involved in a traffic collision, cause the removal and seizure of the vehicle without the necessity of arresting the person in accordance with Chapter 10 (commencing with Section 22650) of Division 11. A vehicle so impounded shall be impounded for 30 days.
(2) The impounding agency, within two working days of impoundment, shall send a notice by certified mail, return receipt requested, to the legal owner of the vehicle, at the address obtained from the department, informing the owner that the vehicle as been impounded. Failure to notify the legal owner within two working days shall prohibit the impounding agency from charging for more than 15 days’ impoundment when the legal owner redeems the impounded vehicle. The impounding agency shall maintain a published telephone number that provides information 24 hours a day regarding the impoundment of vehicles and the rights of a registered owner to request a hearing…” HERE
UNFUNDED MANDATE: Obama’s “OK, I really am a dictator” illegal executive amnesty creates a financial burden for states as undocumented residents come out of the shadows and become eligible for public benefits. HERE
