Jefferson defined ignorance as believing in strong central government.
I know for a fact that Jefferson was right on his idea of a strong central government. The people who believe in it are fully ignorant. Which is where we stand today. People running our government who are totally ignorant because all they believe in, is a strong and huge central government. And we had more of that ignorance the other day when it came to the federal government suing Arizona for it’s new anti immigration law, which hasn’t even gone into effect yet. Here is what the government did as taken from NumbersUSA.com:
The Justice Department has officially filed suit against Arizona’s new immigration enforcement law. The Obama Administration has been critical of the state’s law since its passing several months ago and will now challenge the section that allows local police officers to question an individual’s citizenship status, saying it usurps federal law.
The federal government will seek an injunction, preventing the law from going into effect on July 29 until the case is reviewed.
The Obama Administration will use the Constitution’s Supremacy Clause in their case against Arizona. The Supremacy Clause states that federal law supersedes state law, and the Administration contends that the Arizona law goes beyond federal immigration enforcement statutes.
Arizona Governor Jan Brewer says the federal government’s decision to sue is a bad idea.
And Governor Jan Brewer is right. The Government is suing Arizona for passing a law that does nothing but mirror the law that the federal government has on the books….but the difference is, Arizona wants to enforce the law…the federal government wishes the law didn’t exist, and actually treats it like it doesn’t.
This kind of thinking from our government has got to stop. This frivolous law suit that Obama and the government on the left has hit Arizona with is nothing more than a total waste of Taxpayer money. But for the Obama administration, that isn’t something new. They have been wasting our money since day one. And this is one American that is sick and tired of this no account from Chicago, spending my money like it is theirs to spend any way they want. And no matter what the man thinks….the money isn’t his, and we do not work for him. It is time that Mr. Obama learned this little lesson in life. Just because he is the president, doesn’t mean that he is totally in charge. He is not a dictator.
But the big thing here about this Arizona law, is the media is doing everything they can to make everyone think that it is controversial. If you listen to the media, every time they talk about the law, it is the “controversial law”, when the fact of the matter is, there is nothing controversial about it. Here, showing you what I mean on this, is the media, pushing they’re agenda:
WOLF BLITZER: (music) The US Justice Department suing to block Arizona’s controversial new immigration law.
KATIE COURIC: (music) …the federal government sues to block Arizona’s controversial immigration law.
SHEPARD SMITH: (music) the Department of Justice today sued the state of Arizona over its controversial new immigration law.
SGT. SCHULTZ: The Department of Justice filed a suit over Arizona’s controversial new immigration law.
CHUCK ROBERTS: (music) The Justice Department has filed a lawsuit against Arizona’s controversial immigration bill. (sic–law)
CENK UYGUR: (sfx) …filing a lawsuit against Arizona over the state’s controversial immigration law.
RICHELLE CAREY: The Justice Department has filed a lawsuit today against Arizona’s controversial immigration bill.
BRIAN WILLIAMS: The United States today sued the state of Arizona. It’s about the controversial new immigration law.
It’s almost like everyone of them listened to the first one, and then mimic’d them to do their reports. But here is the problem with what they are all saying. This law, is NOT controversial. How can it be controversial if 70% of the people support it? The only people who think this is controversial, are the ones that support the president, and the people who do not wish to enforce the existing laws about the illegals. The list starts right at the top, with Barack Hussein Obama! Mmmm Mmmmm Mmmmm!
Thursday, President Obama gave a speech at American University in Washington D.C., blaming partisan politics for Congress’ inability to pass comprehensive immigration reform (amnesty). The President also noted that our borders are as secure as they have been in decades and that America’s immigration laws are unenforceable. This is also very laughable, as the President is using his powers of persuasion to lie to the American public about something that most of us already know is untrue. To me Obama is a horrible president because he will knowingly lie about something over and over again just to push what HE wants. He keeps forgetting that he is not there to rule over us, he is there to rule for us. And he is definitely not ruling for the American people, or for America for that matter. He lies about the border saying it is the most secure it has been in decades, and yet he is always blocking enforcement, and the laws there to help enforce. When he took his oath of office and swore to faithfully execute the laws of the land, he didn’t say. “except those laws I don’t like….like immigration laws.”, as another article in NumbersUSA.com printed.
Back to what Obama has done and not done, here is more from the article from NumbersUSA.com:
Shortly after the laws final passage, Pres. Obama announced that he would send 1,200 Border Patrol troops to the Arizona border to assist Border Patrol agents with their daily duties. He has yet to send the troops.
Three Democratic House Members from Arizona have asked the Administration not to sue.
“This lawsuit is a sideshow, distracting us from the real task at hand,” Democratic Rep. Ann Kirkpatrick said in a statement released on Tuesday. “A court battle between the federal government and Arizona will not move us closer to securing the border or fixing America’s broken immigration system…..”
Unfortunately, he was specific about one thing: his support for an amnesty for the 11-18 million illegal aliens living in the United States. Even though he admitted that these individuals came here to take jobs from US workers who desperately need them, he still wants Congress to give them an amnesty so they can permanently keep the jobs they’ve stolen from unemployed legal workers. In fact, apparently wanting to ensure that no illegal alien is left behind, the President called on Congress to pass three amnesties—the DREAM Act, AgJOBS, and blanket amnesty as part of comprehensive immigration reform. It is disappointing that the 7 million illegal aliens with non-agricultural jobs are more important to the President than the 25 million Americans who are unable to find full-time work.
Finally, his politicization of the issue is offensive. The President talked about all the different groups he’s met with, representing all kinds of views, faiths, and beliefs. Unfortunately, the only groups he hasn’t met with are those who represent the American people, who oppose amnesty and his apparent plan to ratchet up already too high legal immigration levels. He claims that Republicans are the ones blocking comprehensive immigration reform. However, the last time I checked, Democrats control both the House and the Senate, and if President Obama does not have the votes to force an amnesty through Congress, it is because many Democrats, like most Republicans, actually represent their constituents and oppose amnesty.
They’re problem with the law, is not that it is doing the right thing, but that Obama can’t take credit for it. And he knows it. He can’t take credit for it…because he has let us all know that he does not feel it needs taken care of. And because Obama is doing nothing more than playing political games with the safety of America and Americans.
He is a socialist, not a capitalist. He hates what America should stand for. He loves our enemies. If he really did love America, as his NEW rhetoric tells us, he would not have sued Arizona for this. He would have been on they’re side. I can just imagine our enemies are loving this “disunity” with their enemy. They can now just sit back and watch as America continues to tear herself apart. But I think this is going to have a totally different effect on America than our enemies or our president thinks it will. Just watch my friends, as the UNITY continues to grow with the grassroots American. That is where our strength lies. NOT IN A STRONG FEDERAL GOVERNMENT. Jefferson was right.
God Bless America, her troops, her allies and her people
