Shush, the “debate is over”

 

Preezy has used this “debate is over” meme on everything ranging from ‘climate change’ to ‘Islamophobia’. The “debate is over” on ‘Obamacare’, and the newly found ‘War on Women’. The “debate is over” on Benghazi, the IRS, Fast and Furious, the VA and anything the left finds uncomfortable discussing (which, according to their list, is pretty much everything).

 

Addled Harry Reid advocates amending the Constitution to restrict free speech. That damnable Supreme Court didn’t do ‘the right thing’ in their Citizen’s United decision. Maybe Reid doesn’t understand the more business is regulated and abused by the left, the more they will become involved in the political process which includes lobbying and huge donations. Just like the 13 Congress critters, all Dems, who used the IRS to “punch back twice as hard” on those who disagree with their politics. If that wasn’t unethical, what is?

Unsatisfied with the Supreme Court’s rulings on political speech, and in the throes of a Koch brothers monomania, Reid has signed onto a proposal to amend the Constitution to allow Congress to regulate who can say what during public debates

Vote to amend Free Speech?   Harry Reid chooses to try and stifle political opponents. How low can the Dems sink.

The proposed amendment was introduced by Sen. Tom Udall (D-CO) as S.J.R. 19 and if ratified would become the Twenty-Eighth Amendment. It provides in part that “Congress shall have power to regulate the raising and spending of money and in-kind equivalents with respect [to] the Federal elections … [and] State elections.”

The proposed amendment includes a provision that “Nothing in this article shall be construed to grant Congress the power to abridge the freedom of the press.” So Breitbart News, The New York Times, and the mainstream media would be able to say whatever they want, but citizens and citizen groups such as the National Rifle Association could not.

 

“Judge shopping” to get the rubberstamp of approval.  Guess BO wasn’t “outraged” enough by NSA snooping.

The government apparently decided that rather than narrow its request, it would just ask another judge. It took this warrant request all the way across the nation to another magistrate judge in California, hoping to get the rubber stamp it couldn’t coax out of the Washington, DC court. Judge Paul Grewal of California’s Northern District has just joined Facciola in rejecting the request as being overly broad. He attacks the government’s wish to “seize first, search later” approach as inappropriate for the securing of data stored by third parties, which face none of the limitations inherent to searching a computer on site.

 

U.S. Setting Up Emergency Shelter in Texas as Youths Cross Border Alone.  Send their illegal parents back with them. None of them belong here.  They need to take care of their kids in their own countries, not abandon them.

The flow of child migrants has been building since 2011, when 4,059 unaccompanied youths were apprehended by border agents. Last year more than 21,000 minors were caught, and Border Patrol officials had said they were expecting more than 60,000 this year. But that projection has already been exceeded.

By law, unaccompanied children caught crossing illegally from countries other than Mexico are treated differently from other migrants. After being apprehended by the Border Patrol, they must be turned over within 72 hours to a refugee resettlement office that is part of the Health Department. Health officials must try to find relatives or other adults in the United States who can care for them while their immigration cases move through the courts, a search that can take several weeks or more.

  1. Sorry for delays in posting. One of my neighbors had a medical emergency. I took care of her 3 little girls for a few days, ages 5, 6, 7. We definitely had a full house. 😀

  2. I think we bailed on the Obama Dems just in time. We are truly living in Bizzarro World. 😉

    • Yes, we certainly did!
      The “locals” stressed me out, all downhill from there. The very bureaucracies set up to help the poor make it hard for the poor to get on the bottom rung of the ladder. All thanks to the Dems economic policies which stink….

  3. Clinton insults ambitious Americans for bemoaning a “basic bargain” lost without acknowledging how very much the political class she’s part of has loomed large in the disappearance of the American Dream. Mrs. Clinton isn’t the solution, rather she’s the problem.Clinton further insults ambitious Americans with her allusion to a “basic bargain” in the first place. That’s the case because the world’s ambitious didn’t often times risk their lives coming here because they were in pursuit of security, they did so because they valued personal and economic freedom far more than the meager offerings that define basic bargains. Individuals the world over have persistently flocked to the United States precisely because they did not desire the basics of life offered up by governments able to tax away the work of their citizens.

  4. Platitudes and rhetoric have not fixed the problem…as per usual, the buck doesn’t stop anywhere anymore

    The Obama administration received clear notice more than five years ago that VA medical facilities were reporting inaccurate waiting times and experiencing scheduling failures that threatened to deny veterans timely health care — problems that have turned into a growing scandal.

    Veterans Affairs officials warned the Obama-Biden transition team in the weeks after the 2008 presidential election that the department shouldn’t trust the wait times that its facilities were reporting.

    “This is not only a data integrity issue in which [Veterans Health Administration] reports unreliable performance data; it affects quality of care by delaying — and potentially denying — deserving veterans timely care,” the officials wrote.

    The briefing materials, obtained by The Washington Times through the Freedom of Information Act, make clear that the problems existed well before Mr. Obama took office, dating back at least to the Bush administration. But the materials raise questions about what actions the department took since 2009 to remedy the problems.
