Immigration Bill may raid the Social Security Trust Fund

Sen. David Vitter, R-La., an opponent of the immigration bill, argued that the legislation relies on $211 billion of Social Security revenue over the next 10 years and that without that money the legislation would cause a $10 billion deficit and that was against the budget rules. So, Senator Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., proposed Wednesday that the budget rules be waived, a measure that required 60 votes. The Senate voted 68-30 Wednesday to waive existing budget requirements to allow the immigration measure to proceed for a vote later this week that...

NYC considers giving noncitizens the right to vote!

A few weeks ago I posted that the California legislature passed a bill that would make the state the first of many blue states in the nation to allow noncitizens, who are in the country legally, to serve on jury duty. Many commenters said so what? They are here legally and if they are not citizens, “what difference, at this point, does it make” to quote our former Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton on Benghazi. Here is the difference that it makes – “Give a liberal an inch and they take a mile.” Now the New York...

Excerpt from columnist Michelle Malkin: “This is the same organization that employs journalists who have repeatedly shown naked bias against tea party members, gun owners and pro-life activists. I propose that we banish the term ‘journalist’ when referring to members of mainstream news organizations...

Unemployed could sue if job interview unsuccessful

According to a report in the New York Times, President Obama thinks he may have figured out a way to create jobs, since everything else he has tried has failed, including his $800B stimulus.

Excerpt: Under the proposal, it would be “an unlawful employment practice” if a business with 15 or more employees refused to hire a person “because of the individual’s...

Obama’s new immigration policy was not executive order

The Obama administration is now saying that his new immigration proclamation wasn’t really an extension of the immigration laws in the form of an unconstitutional executive order. It was simply an extension of an existing policy of prosecutorial discretion in prioritizing the deportation of certain individuals. Obama ordered the Department of Homeland Security to stop deporting individuals, who were brought here before the age of 16 by a parent or someone who made the decision for them, and who is under 30 years of age, has lived in the U.S....
