Everything you need to know: 1. USCIS is soliciting bids for printing as many as 34 million new green cards and related forms and documents. 2. General Dynamics, a major defense contractor and the largest contributor to House Appropriations Committee chairman Rep. Hal Rogers (R-KY), is a main contender for the contract. http://www.newsmax.com/Newsfront/green-card-immigration-surge/2014/10/19/id/601688/ http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2014/11/16/Exclusive-GOP-Rep-Hal-Rogers-Campaign-Donor-Stands-to-Profit-from-Executive-Amnesty As always, Democrats want enough new voters to ensure a permanent electoral majority. Establishment Republicans and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce want cheap labor. Catholic bishops and other misguided religious figures want more huddled masses to care for. Hard leftists pursuing the Cloward-Piven strategy want to flood the country with immigrants and break every system possible. Their only domestic opposition is about 300 million of us who care about such antiquated concepts as sovereignty and solvency. As always, they will get their way.
The federal government is soliciting bids to print 34 million new green cards. That should tell you everything you need to know about TPS, Obama's blabber, and the Democrat Party's long-term plan to remake its own base and build a permanent electoral majority. Note to African-Americans: this plan involves demoting you to second place, at best, among minorities. Enjoy.
Yesterday Fox News ran a piece on the Keystone XL vote with the subtitle "Fail Mary." Wish I'd thought of that.

Yes and no. American voters are generally uninformed and apathetic, and roughly half of them are either stupid or foolish. A sleazy nobody with a top-secret paper trail couldn't have won the presidency twice in other circumstances. But they've also been systematically lied to and kept in the dark by oily politicians, vile technocrats, and the press. Gruber proved himself partly wrong each time he correctly asserted the importance of dishonesty. Millions of intelligent Americans knew that Obamacare was disastrous, and millions more would've agreed if they'd been told convincingly. Lying to prevent large-scale rebellion is a plain admission that the public can grasp the truth and use it. Further, Gruber's disparagement of American voters was beside his point. They weren't voting on Obamacare. Congress was. Some of our lavishly paid representatives opposed Obamacare as needless and ruinous, but the Democrats running both houses squelched them. Some thought Obamacare was probably a bad idea, but supported it anyway. The rest either believed the regime's lies or helped create and propagate them. But not even the most ardent supporters of the bill knew what it said before they passed it, and they're still wrangling over the import of what staffers and lobbyists sneaked in. Now THERE are your stupid voters.

That's the most concise and accurate post I've read in a long time. My compliments.
Jon Stewart, a bitter, strident, but occasionally funny leftist scumbag, has called out Nancy Pelosi, a bitter, strident, but never intentionally funny leftist scumbag, for unpardonable behavior that would instantly destroy a Republican of her status. Stranger things have happened. They're both still scumbags.
The bad news is that if one side plays by the rules and the other doesn't, the other will win in the end. The good news is that people who set fires to contain conflagrations are not arsonists and aren't the moral equivalent of arsonists.
I hate to say it, but the Washington Compost has the rough beginnings of a point. The Republican Party, flawed as it is, is the party of principle, adult behavior, and lip-service, at least, to the Constitution. The Democrat Party is the party of division, license, childishness, cynicism, arrogance, usurpation, and abuse of power. Ruling by decree is in character for Democrats, but not for Republicans. If Republicans copied the Democrat methods that they've condemned, they wouldn't be irrational, but they would be hypocritical. The trouble is, such considerations are no longer important. When Democrats take power, they go crazy and quickly screw things up however they can, trampling Constitution, law, precedent, tradition, and simple decency along the way. When Republicans regain control, they try to clean up the mess in a deliberate, conciliatory, procedurally correct manner and usually fail to finish the job before voters get bored and start the cycle again. Democrats endure defeat after defeat knowing that when they return to power again, most of their legacy will be intact. Thus the state of the Union ratchets down. Of what use is standing on principle while the country falls? The next Republican administration should undo every bit of Obama-era foolishness as soon as possible by every means available. Further, it should repair as much pre-Obama damage as it can. Canceling Kennedy's EO allowing federal employees to bargain collectively would be an excellent place to start.
Exactly. Make the fools filibuster until they're too tired and hoarse to proposition interns. Wear out the fool-in-chief with veto after veto after veto. They wanted this fight. Force them to stand up and take their punishment for the full 15 rounds. Eventually people will get the message despite an embargo by the kept media.
It's not even as if the Democrat holdouts put ideology above mere political expediency. They know that the Republican majority in the next session will approve KX. They're just playing to their loony-left base.
