A Reasonable Plan to End Illegal Immigration

 

 
 

by John W. Lillpop

Mr. President, Honorable Members of Congress:

Because our government has refused to secure America’s borders and enforce our immigration laws, our nation is struggling to deal with as many as 12-38 million illegal aliens who have entered this great nation unlawfully.

Many are good-hearted, hard working folks, simply looking for a better life.

However, that description also applies to scores of millions of others throughout the world, just as eager, and just as deserving, for a chance at the American Dream.

But while America is overwhelmed with illegal aliens who have willfully violated our borders and laws, people in other parts of the world are ordered to stand in line, wait their turn, and do that which is required for legal immigration.

We tell such hopefuls that America operates in accordance with the rule of law, and that their immigration wishes must be handled fairly, according to law.

Many of those waiting in line are highly educated and well trained.

Unfortunately, the same can not be said for most illegal aliens currently in America.

Predominately from third-world Latin nations, they are typically non-English speaking, unskilled and poor. Such people impose extraordinary burdens on our all-ready stressed education, health care, and legal systems, and cost American taxpayers hundreds of billions each year.

In addition, while young American men and women are sent to serve in harm’s way in Afghanistan, our own borders remain unsecured, making America vulnerable to further terrorist attacks.

Failure to secure the home front during time of war can only be seen as a mockery of the American lives and treasury sacrificed to secure freedom in foreign lands 10,000 miles from home.

Americans are well aware of the fact that immigration is the subject of intense debate in the hallowed halls of congress. We also hear that some legislative proposals would actually forgive those who have broken into America in defiance of our borders and laws.

In Washington parlance, the euphemism is “Immigration Reform.”

Immigration reform is understood by everyone to be “amnesty,” and is totally unacceptable to a large majority of the American people.

To reward those who are here illegally would only serve to invite another 30 million or so to invade, and would be an unmitigated outrage.

At some point, our government (you) must decide that America is a sovereign nation with borders and laws that really mean something.

Again: Amnesty is totally unacceptable.

A sensible approach to immigration reform should incorporate the ideas offered below:

Employers Must Be Forced to Follow the Law

Businesses that employ illegal aliens represent a major threat to U.S. homeland security and the war on terror. Such businesses must be punished to the full extent of the law, including severe criminal sanctions against management.

Deportations Essential

America can no longer tolerate a policy whereby the immigrant decides unilaterally to invade America—and gets away with it!

The U.S. government must have total control over who enters the nation, where they will reside, for what purpose authorized, and date by which that individual must leave.

No reform scenario should sanction illegals currently here. Intelligent reform should require that every illegal alien be deported.

Use Military Force to Secure Borders

Our borders must be secured by sufficient military troops and or national guardsmen authorized to use force as needed to prevent illegal entry into the U.S.

Temporary Work Permit (TWP)

A worker in a foreign nation wishing to APPLY for a TWP should be allowed to do so, PROVIDED he/she has not been in America unlawfully within the last five years.

Other conditions:

An American employer seeking services from a foreign worker should, in effect, sponsor the worker. That means assuring there is NO burden to the community by way of health care costs,education, crime, and the like.

Employers may chose to form cooperatives to purchase health insurance at group rates. However, any and all costs of such coverage should be absorbed by employers, not taxpayers.

A TWP should authorize a term of not greater than 18 months, and pertain only to the worker.(A worker’s family could cost U.S. taxpayers substantially for health care, educational and
legal services systems, thereby mitigating any benefit realized by employing the worker.)

No worker on a TWP must be allowed to parent an “anchor baby.” Existing U.S. laws conferring citizenship on those born to illegal aliens must be changed, retroactively.

Criminal behavior of any sort, even a misdemeanor, should require immediate deportation of the worker.

All of the worker’s income should be subject to tax withholding according to procedures administered by employers.

The worker should acknowledge, in writing, his/her understanding and agreement that the TWP has a limited, non-extendable term, and that it confers no other benefits such as driver’s license, social welfare, in-state tuition breaks, or citizenship.

Employers must assure that the worker leaves the U.S. before expiration of the TWP. Any violations should cause the employer to be severely punished.

The labor needs of American business can be satisfied without jeopardizing homeland security or the economic and cultural stability of the American people.

However, we must secure the borders permanently, force employers to obey the law, deport those here illegally, and stop making it so easy and attractive for illegal immigrants to invade America.

Any amnesty proposal is NOT an acceptable alternative.

Trusting each of You to protect and defend the constitution from all enemies, foreign and domestic, I remain Sincerely Yours,

GOP Conspiracy to Keep Blacks out of Major League Baseball?

 

By John W. Lillpop

Baseball legend Hank Aaron gained fame and fortune with quick, powerful wrists and precise timing which enabled him to react to a baseball hurled at 100 MPH, often crushing the ball out of the park. In 1974, Aaron broke the homerun record of Babe Ruth; Aaron’s record has since been supplanted by Barry Bonds with a big assist from steroids.

Regrettably, Aaron took his eye off the ball recently to engage in a bit of race-baiting against Republicans.

As reported:

The firestorm erupted after 80-year-old Aaron, the senior vice president of the Braves, said in an interview with USA Today that America today is “not that far removed” from the racial intolerance of the mid-20th century.

On the 40th anniversary of his home-run record, he said, “Sure, this country has a black president, but when you look at a black president, President Obama is left with his foot stuck in the mud from all of the Republicans with the way he’s treated. The bigger difference is that back then they had hoods. Now they have neckties and starched shirts.”

Referring to current race relations in the country, he added, “We have moved in the right direction, and there have been improvements. But we still have a long ways to go in the country.”

To prove his point, Aaron cited the decrease in U.S.-born black baseball players as evidence of modern-day structural racism.

There are only 67 black players in the major leagues, with three teams not represented by a single African-American player: the San Francisco Giants, Arizona Diamondbacks and St. Louis Cardinals, according to USA Today.”

 So, Republicans are responsible for the fact that there are only 67 black players in the big leagues, and that the number of blacks has decreased?

And it’s OK to blame the GOP for the fact that the San Francisco Giants, with a long and storied history of employing black superstars such as Barry Bonds, Willie Mays, Willie McCovey, et al.,  has no black players on its roster at the present time?

Shame on you, John Boehner and Mitch McConnell!

Just where is black Attorney General, Eric Holder, when you need him?  Covering up his complicity in the IRS scandal, or attacking Voter ID laws and other measures taken to prevent voter fraud?

Let Aaron’s cry be a Clarion call to Holder and the US Congress: We must have an investigation to determine why there only 67 black players in baseball!

Let guilty GOP members be perk- walked off the floors of the US House and Senate to send a strong message: Having only 67 black ball players in the big leagues is unacceptable and possibly unconstitutional. These human rights violations may require black president Barack Obama to issue Executive Orders to bring equality and justice to America’s past time!

Perhaps Holder and Barack could also take a cursory look at the National Basketball Association where blacks represent 90 % of the affiliated players?  Or would that be racist?

 
Should DOJ be profiling white guys in starched shirts and neck ties?

An “Appropriate” Apology to Barack from Dr. Ben Carson

By John W. Lillpop

As has been widely reported, Barack Obama fell into a juvenile snit after being criticized by Dr. Ben Carson at a prayer breakfast in 2013.

As the story goes, the President, through the breakfast organizers, White House staff, or both, let it be known that he expected an apology.

The good doctor declined, asserting that, in his view,  an apology was unnecessary and inappropriate.

In the interest of promoting harmony among powerful public figures, the following apology seems appropriate and reasonable.

To Barack Obama: I am sorry that you are such an inept and reprehensible poser. America deserves better, much better!”

Sincerely,

 BC

As Putin Terrorizes Europe, Obama Chases “Mad Cows” in Nevada!

 

 
 

By John W. Lillpop

The tumultuous situation in Ukraine has escalated dramatically, so much so, in fact, that Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev stated that the nation was on the verge of civil war as Kiev authorities launched a military operation against pro-Kremlin militants in the separatist east.

“I will be brief: Ukraine is on the brink of civil war, it’s frightening,”the country’s former president was quoted as saying by Russian news agencies.

Meanwhile, back in the US, Presidential Poser Barack Obama continues to meet with top advisers and livestock scholars in a desperate attempt to diffuse a dangerous outbreak of “Mad Cow” disorder in which Nevada ranchers were savoring a victory over Obama’s Bureau of Land Management intellectuals whom had invaded the Bundy Ranch to quash an outbreak of “illegal cattle grazing.”

Thus, Vladimir Putin uses his KGB credentials and evil ways to conquer Europe and return Russia to the glory days of the Soviet Union, whilst Barack Obama chases 900 cattle around the bad lands of Nevada to divert public attention from his failed ObamaCare disaster!

Yes, Virginia, it is true: The era of American Exceptionalism really is over!

Wars, Rumors of War, Blood Moons: Glad Tidings from Above?

Image

By John W. Lillpop

A bit of wisdom from one who once aspired to being a man of the cloth: Reading Revelations in the Bible should NOT be undertaken immediately before going to sleep!

Although the overall news—the return of Jesus Christ—is powerfully good, the description of things to come before one rests at the Right Hand of God in eternal glory can be unsettling, to say the least.

So unsettling that frightening dreams may ensue, thereby interrupting any chance one might have of enjoying blissful sleep.

Of course, with the tyrannical president and Congress now encumbering America, exposure to unsettling news is almost impossible to escape.  It’s what Obama and the Democrats do for a living, all in the name of “Progressive” liberation!

Liberation from one’s wealth, freedom, individuality, and common sense, that is!

From Obamacare; to the Bundy Ranch armed invasion by government supported by the Majority Leader of the US Senate owing to a vested desire to reward China with a solar power facility AND to enrich offspring and other familial interests; to $17 trillion in federal debt; to incendiary rhetoric from the Minority Leader of the US House intended to incite a race war in an election year, to the general dissatisfaction with the direction in which the nation is headed—the news from Washington D.C. is almost all dreadful, especially for those who believe that limited government and a free and vibrant electorate are necessary to fulfill  the “pursuit of happiness.”

Compared to all the negative news about the misdeeds of evil men and women in Washington, D.C., the descriptions in Revelations, while frightening, can also be exhilaratingly refreshing and uplifting!

Indeed, news of wars, rumors of wars, earthquakes, blood moons, and the like can be seen as hopeful signs that the End Times are nigh, that the decadence and moral decay which permeates the human spirit will soon (?) be disposed of in accordance with eternal and spiritual law.

Thus, rejoice when the ground shakes, rattles, and rolls, or when Barack Obama tells another lie!

It just may be the Creator’s  way of reminding the faithful that “this too shall pass!” in the fullness of time!

Fret Not!

Without 2nd Amendment, What Would Be Left on Bundy Ranch?

 

By John W. Lillpop

Although the federal government has finally retreated from the Bundy ranch in Nevada without inflicting or suffering serious injury or fatalities, the episode should sound a loud wake-up call to Americans queasy about the 2nd Amendment and the right of citizens to bear arms.

Make no mistake about it. The Nevada showdown was about far more than illegal cattle grazing.

Indeed, at stake was the abuse of power by a tyrannical president whom often does not respect the rule of law, the US Constitution, or the US Congress which, much to the chagrin of that president, is empowered by the Constitution as an equal partner in the role of governance.

Tyrannical power versus the right of American citizens to own private property.

Tyrannical power versus the liberty and freedom of a society in which the government governs at the consent of the governed.

What would have been the outcome had there been no 2nd Amendment rights to protect the patriots whom opposed the government invasion of private property?

The 2nd Amendment right of citizens to “keep and bear arms” forced fuzzy- thinking government bureaucrats to retreat as reported:

“Based on information about conditions on the ground, and in consultation with law enforcement, we have made a decision to conclude the cattle gather because of our serious concern about the safety of employees and members of the public,” BLM Director Neil Kornze said.”

Without a 2nd Amendment, it is doubtful that the belligerent Obama government would have acted to avoid “serious concern about the safety of employees and members of the public.”

God Bless the 2nd Amendment!

American Grit Triumphs Over Progressive Tyranny!

Image

 

 

By John W. Lillpop

Whom would have thunk that a humble cattle rancher in Nevada would go toe-to-toe against the bloated, but armed, bureaucracy of the United States Bureau of Land Management— and emerge the winner?

Oh, how SWEET the taste of victory by rancher Cliven Bundy over the tyranny of King Barack and his gang of armed bullies!  

In a story somewhat reminiscent of the battles fought and won by American patriots over King George over 200 years ago, Mr. Bundy et al. provided a “Teachable Moment” for King Barack and his inept government of anti-American Marxists, all of whom had apparently forgotten the inalienable sanctity of the right to private property and other individual rights guaranteed by the US Constitution!

One can almost imagine the thunderous roar of cheering  from the throats of the Founders as federal agents retreated from the Bundy ranch– in defeat!

One can also imagine an excited spokesperson for the Founders saying, “By golly, those ranchers and those who support them get it! They really understand that government is subservient to the people, not the other way around. Our hard work from more than 230 years ago was NOT in vain!”

American grit over oppressive government!  That’s what America is all about.

As reported:

 A Nevada cattle rancher appears to have won his week-long battle with the federal government over a controversial cattle roundup that had led to the arrest of several protesters.
Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally.
Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a “range war” against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of his sons was arrested while protesting the removal of the cattle.
“I have no contract with the United States government,” Bundy said. “I was paying grazing fees for management and that’s what BLM was supposed to be, land managers and they were managing my ranch out of business, so I refused to pay.”
The federal government had countered that Bundy “owes the American people in excess of $1 million ” in unpaid grazing fees and “refuses to abide by the law of land, despite many opportunities over the last 20 years to do so.”
However, today the BLM said it would not enforce a court order to remove the cattle and was pulling out of the area.
“Based on information about conditions on the ground, and in consultation with law enforcement, we have made a decision to conclude the cattle gather because of our serious concern about the safety of employees and members of the public,” BLM Director Neil Kornze said.”


All Americans can be grateful for the fact that the conflict ended as it did with no loss of life or serious injury; however, one must ask:

Where in the hell was the “serious concern about the safety of employees and members of the public,” before the armed rangers were deployed on private property in the first place?

Actually, true American patriots knew all along how this mess would end:

In an important election year, the Surrender Politics of Barack Obama and the progressives did not stand a chance against the American grit of we the people!
