For years, with the Bush Jr. administration, I have complained about our open borders and bringing in cheap labor including in many industries like Silicon Valley seeking Asian workers for here. Lots of money has been given to politicians to keep the borders open, both Republican and Democrat. Neither party acknowledges this, they call this ‘fund raising for elections’ but these are really bribes. Since 9/11 our borders have been wide open to aliens who have come in the many millions.
So much for ‘Homeland Security’. It never really existed. Even the terror of flying continues as our government allows anyone to board planes and come here even if they have dangerous communicative diseases that pass easily from one person to the next.
There is a huge, rising tide of fury about all this. It has now become a torrent of rage, not on the far left which is terrified of phantom global warming, it is the huge middle class that is alarmed and angry.
So our President comes out swinging, Obama: ‘It is suicide’ for GOP to not do immigration reform Obama says to a bunch of Latinos in LA while fundraising.
Obama argued that the demographics of the country were changing and that Hispanics were becoming a larger part of the population. If Republicans fail to pass immigration reform, Obama said, a generation could conclude that the party didn’t care about them.
At the same time, Obama said, “the Tea Party and others who often express virulent” opposition to immigration reform are making Republican lawmakers reluctant.
Still, the president predicted that immigration reform would pass Congress before the end of his presidency…
On Thursday, Obama hinted that one executive action he was contemplating would expand the H1-B visa program, which allows skilled immigrants to come to the U.S. to work.
Yes, the owners of corporations want even more foreign labor! And their families. This foreign labor loves this and hopes their children will have jobs but alas, the plan is to dump them into the garbage pit and bring in more foreign labor. When will this revolving door shut?
Never. What is worse is the Democratic party, kept alive only via virulent anti-women/gay/black civil rights Republicans. Once the Republicans dump the anti-women/gay parts, they will run the country totally. Lucky for the Democrats, the right wing clings to this fascist sexism.
The poll here shows what I see on the streets: people are worried about jobs. Flooding the nation with foreign workers with college degrees will make our own college graduates suffer even more as they struggle to find jobs and have to pay very high tuition loan costs, wages dropping, jobs filling like crazy with foreign workers, look at hospitals, for example or computer jobs!
Immigration reform is barely on the radar…until this month. Now, with the ebola mess, it is very much on the radar and in a negative way as far as the Democrats are concerned. What is stupider to me is the belief that Hispanics will vote for Democrats.
They are not, culturally, pro-women/gay rights, for example. They are generally quite conservative. They do love welfare but increasingly view it as a trap seeing how blacks have descended into total hell thanks to welfare. They are very pro-marriage in the Catholic way and the Church is conservative, not liberal.
The poll found that 35 percent of voters in the most competitive House and Senate races this fall said they approved of how Obama has dealt with immigration, compared with 64 percent who said they disapproved of the president’s handling of the issue. And by a narrow margin, more voters said they trust the GOP over Democrats on immigration.
The White House also on Sept. 6 announced that it will postpone any executive action on immigration until the end of the year. The decision came amid pressure from Senate Democrats running in competitive reelection bids who feared the controversial move could be used against them in their campaigns.
So Obama lies to Hispanics claiming he will give them goodies while his party pretends they won’t do this when talking to other groups. This will end badly for the Democrats. The Republicans are not going down in flames, the Democrats are going down.
Then there are Jewish voters who want everything for Israel: PressTV – Israelis: Send Obama Ebola on birthday
According to an August 2014 poll, half of Israelis want to send Obama Ebola for only supporting Israeli terrorism 95, not 100%.
In the wake of Israel’s summer 2014 genocidal massacre in Gaza, euphemistically called Operation “Protective” Edge,” the US corporate media is finally (somewhat) catching on to the egregious degree of violent extremism, racism, and downright fascism in Israeli culture.
An August 5, NBC story, titled “Send President Obama Ebola as Birthday Gift, Some Israelis Say,” reports that, according to a recent poll, 46% of Israelis “said they wanted to give Barack Obama an envelope containing the Ebola virus as a present for his 53rd birthday.”
Note, these aren’t just “some” Israelis, as NBC writes; these are almost half of Israelis.
This is Obama’s reward for kow towing to Netanyahu so his party can collect more loot from fascist right wing Jews who are very, very rich. And this is what is destroying our nation, this sort of ethnic politics. It is certainly alienating many voters from the Democratic Party that struggles to stay alive in the teeth of rising fear. But then, the GOP doesn’t protect us, either. Neither party does, they are both owned by elites who have their own agenda having to do with making more money at our collective expense.
