Jeff Sessions on the Omnibus War on the American Worker

We're increasing immigration levels like crazy at the very same time the transnationalist progressives who run this country (such as Paul Ryan) refuse to enforce the rules against illegal immigration.

To hell with them all.

It's essentially a declaration of war by the GOP against its (former) voters.



The Solution

After the uprising of the 17th of June
The Secretary of the Writers' Union
Had leaflets distributed in the Stalinallee
Stating that the people
Had forfeited the confidence of the government
And could win it back only
By redoubled efforts. Would it not be easier
In that case for the government
To dissolve the people
And elect another?

13 By the way, new PPP poll out: Trump essentially tied with Billary in IA, and she's way under 50% even though she's, functionally speaking, the incumbent. Trump polls better against her than everyone but Rubio, Cruz, and Carson.

And I see the porn outfits are already piggybacking with their own Star Wars porn parodies, one very much bringing to mind Kat Timpf's "poking with nerd sticks" metaphor. Light saber dildos......

38 Illegal immigration and H1B/H2B immigrants are an existential threat to whole swaths of Americans, including Blacks and legal Hispanics.

A typical illegal and family earns a small wage, pays little or nothing in taxes, but creates a need for government spending that can easily exceed $100k on account of education, healthcare and social service spending.

It's not just that Democrats see future voters. It creates a need for increased spending that benefits unionized teachers, healthcare workers, social workers and ... dare I say it ... prison guards.

This mandated spending is a meaningful share of the pseudo-growth in GDP we've been having.

40 I'm going to withhold judgement until next year. It is possible, just, that Ryan is, or thinks he is, playing a long game here. He wants to get through this year with a minimum of disruption, because that will provide the best shot for us to get a conservative in the WH, and really get what we want.

No, I don't really believe it, nor do I think it's a good strategy, but at this point, there's nothing else left.

Yes, I get that we always say wait until the next election, or whatever. I'm still going to give Ryan a teensy bit of credit here.

42 dammit, willowed


Rearden had felt another click in his mind, the sharper click of the second tumbrel connecting the circuits of the lock. He leaned forward."What are you counting on?" he asked; his tone had changed, it was low, it had the steady, pressing, droning sound of a drill."It's only a matter of gaining time!" cried Mouch.
"There isn't any time left to gain."
"All we need is a chance!" cried Lawson.
"There are no chances left."
"It's only until we recover!" cried Holloway.
"There is no way to recover."
"Only until our policies begin to work!" cried Dr. Ferris.
"There's no way to make the irrational work.'1 There was no answer.
"What can save you now?"
"Oh, you'll do something!" cried James Taggart.
Then—even though it was only a sentence he had heard all his life—he felt a deafening crash within him, as of a steel door dropping open at the touch of the final tumbrel, the one small number completing the sum and releasing the intricate lock, the answer uniting all the pieces, the questions and the unsolved wounds of his life. In the moment of silence after the crash, it seemed to him that he heard Francisco's voice, asking him quietly in the ballroom of this building, yet asking it also here and now: "Who is the guiltiest man in this room?" He heard his own answer of the past: "I suppose— James Taggart?" and Francisco's voice saying without reproach: "No, Mr. Rearden, it's not James Taggart,"—but here, in this room and this moment, his mind answered: "I am."

Twas ever thus, but there used to be a common cultural core that demanded some assimilation. Now that benefits are doled out by the government and not by being absorbed into the general population and economic engine, why identify as American?

INNN-teresting....

Here is the full text of the email threat sent to the Houston schools, which is almost verbatim to the one sent to the NY and LA schools:

Hello there. There is something you should know about, taking place
tomorrow of 12/17/15, Thursday.
My story starts here. I have been bullied every day here, in one of the
district high schools. Just because, I am 'different'. I turned to
religion, to solve my problems, and found faith and comfort in Allah. He
has helped me through a lot. So now, I must help him. He has called upon
me and my fellow comrades to take action against you blasphemers and
non-believers. You have denied Allah for too long. My 46 Jihad
affiliates and I are going to unleash an massacre of epic proportion,
targeting every single school and student in the district. We have an
assorted collection of Kalashnikov rifles, MG240 Light machine guns, RPG
Launchers, .50 Cal Sniper rifles, hand grenades, and to top it off:
suicide vests. We have already planted napalm, propane, and pressure
cooker explosives in multiple schools. They are set to go off in places
that will cause maximum structural damage to each building: for maximum
casualty. First responders will be in for quite the surprise, as we have
highly trained sniper forces straight from Ar Raqqa. We will fight for
our cause tomorrow, and all students in every school in the entire
district will be slaughtered for their blasphemy and unbelief in the one
true God, Allah. You will no longer get away with your dishonesty to our
prophet.
Allah has called upon us:
Quran (3:56) - "As to those who reject faith, I will punish them with
terrible agony in this world and in the Hereafter, nor will they have
anyone to help."
You will no longer deny the wrath of Allah. He has sent us to serve his
holy army.
My name is (name redacted). You may not know this name now,
but my name will be known to everyone. I will be known as the one man
who truly saved this earth. For Allah.
And if you think you will stop us, by canceling schools, or perhaps,
adding security, it will not help.
If school is canceled, then there will be bombings regardless of whether
students are there or not, and mass shootings will be taken to the
streets. If security is stepped up, for tomorrow's fatwa, it will not
help. We will take out any police and other security by any means
necessary, even if we go down with them.

They want to be like Obama and Kerry: just making is a deal is a wonderful thing in and of itself. It used to be "isn't it better to talk than to fight?" Now it's almost "isn't it better to surrender in return for a few empty promises than fight and get a bad write-up in the Washington Post?"

No, they just have your name on a mailing list and they can bother you more.

I don't know if CA is open or closed primary state, but in some states independents can vote in one or the other primary (like my state), and in others you need to be registered to that party to vote in the primary. So that's really the only benefit. Unless you enjoy getting mailers and calls from people asking for money all the time.

Hope that helps.

Budget: Promise to veto any omnibus spending bill.

Illegal immigrants: Find existing legal authority for the IRS to impose withholding on all Western-Union like remittances to Mexico. Use as negotiating leverage to get Mexico to pay for the Wall. Rescind all Obama executive orders like DAPA and DACA. Withhold federal disbursements to sanctuary cities until they comply with existing laws.

Syrian refugees / Muslim entrants: Use existing Presidential authority under existing statute to impose a temporary general ban on entrants from specified countries, with a set of exceptions.

Domestic security: Reverse any and all that limit law enforcement's ability to profile Muslims for investigatory purposes including for travel.

Over-regulation: Start by replacing the EPA head and rescinding all policies adopted during the Obama reign.

DOJ: Replace the apparatchiks. Get medieval on Obama's corrupt cronies.

144 The Tea Party took off when Rick Santelli did his famous rants on CNBC, mostly about the guy with the nice house next to him getting a bailout. There are actual bailouts like the banks, and interest bailouts for the markets of those that borrow too much.

But tea parties got watered down with other issues, or killed by people that just wanted to collect donations, or candidates that were pretenders. The religious people also got involved as they saw new life, so they co-opted the young enthusiasm with their old stuff, including ending all abortion. The new life left, since if they wanted religious dogma they would have already been in that group.

We need the pure form of tea, but immigration sort of fits in there, as it is a handout to foreigners, that helps the rich. Or maybe Trump IS the new T party.

It's not going to happen. Ryan consistently carries a comfortable 66 -68 percent of the vote here, in a district that is pretty much split evenly D / R. The democrat schlub that perennially runs against him is a nobody from nowheresville. I think the most votes he's ever gotten have been 36%, which is pretty much your teachers union and the ladies that work at the library.

I'll go back to coup of 2008 when the usurper was installed. He owns them. He blackmails them with his crimes. They committed treason by allowing him to take over.

They will NEVER stop him. In the mean time they are literally raping our treasury, our sovereignty, our safety and our freedom.



The Uniparty is guilty of treason. Aiding and abetting the enemy combatant squatting in the White House.

The House overwhelmingly approved a $680 billion package of taxs even as the White House and House leaders in both parties scrambled to round up support for a $1.1 trillion spending bill scheduled for a vote Friday morning. The tax package passed 318-109, with 241 Republicans, virtually the entire GOP Conference, voting yes.

The spending bill vote is scheduled for just after 9 a.m. Friday morning, and many members of the House are betting that colleagues will be eager to being their two-week holiday recess and thus vote to clear the measure. Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) and Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) are personally involved with whipping, several sources said. House Republicans are expected to provide anywhere between 100 and 120 votes for the spending bill, which means 100 Democrats would have to vote yes to ensure passage.

The tax bill was approved in a 318-109 vote, with 241 Republicans joining 77 Democrats in backing the measure.

Only 3 Republicans voted against the bill, which permanently renews a range of tax provisions following years of short-term extensions while extending other tax breaks through 2016 or 2019

"How can families and local businesses count on tax relief each year as long as Congress cant decide whats permanent and whats not? That confusion ends with this bill," said House Ways and Means Chairman Kevin Brady (R-Texas).

Cut to several years later. The teen-aged boy is told by a construction supervisor, "I'm sorry kid, but there aren't any jobs available." As he walks away the teenager sees illegals working on the site, with no safety gear.

Finally, the young man sits in front of a desk in an office building. The woman across the desk tells him, "It's an impressive resume, but I'm afraid that we've moved all of our IT positions to Pakistan." As the boy dejectedly walks out of the office, he's joined by others all carrying their cardboard boxes.

"...the Republicans winning the largest number of seats they've had in Congress since the Civil War. We had two midterm elections in 2010 and 2014, which were landslide victories for the Republican Party. The Democrat Party lost over a thousand seats nationwide in just those two elections. People went to the polls in droves wanting exactly what was rubber-stamped last night (or what will be) stopped.

And instead they showed up in record numbers and they it turned out and they just defeated Democrats down the ballot. In the process, they elected Republicans to stop this. And now the Republicans have the largest number of seats in the House they've had in Congress since the Civil War. And it hasn't made any difference at all. It is as though Nancy Pelosi is still running the House and Harry Reid is still running the Senate. "Betrayed" is not even the word here. What has happened here is worse than betrayal. Betrayal is pretty bad, but it's worse than that."

One of the boys, looked about 12 or so, just whipped it out right there and took a piss in the parking lots. Papa and Mamacita didn't give a shit.

284 If you dislike the omnibus bill, one of the things you should be focused on is reforming the appropriations process. Let us take Sen. Shelby, for example. As a Senate appropriator, Shelby placed some of his pet projects in the bill yet he is going to vote against it as a matter of "principle" (the "vote no, hope yes" maneuver). Then there is the fact that Democratic negotiators are largely controlled by their leadership while Republicans are free to negotiate. This creates a lopsided dynamic. I am of the opinion that committees should be allowed to work their will, within reason.

because of the way the process currently works. Of course, one of the primary problems there is the Senate and their rules. I think they ought to look at changing some of them because it seems like some of those aforementioned rules are hindrances to producing better legislation.

I am not a huge fan of Rep. Cole but the point he makes is a sound one. If the Republicans go into negotiations with certain members pledging to vote against the omnibus at the start of negotiations, the Democrats can use it as a weapon. For every House Republican they lose, they have to gain a House Democrat. How does that help matters, exactly? Yet the "vote no, hope yes" caucus continues the ruse on important pieces of legislation.

Actually, I finished reading the omnibus and the Republicans got far more than some outlets are reporting, from pro-life riders to blocking the risk corridor bailout to cutting EPA funding to 2008 levels to preventing IRS and SEC restrictions on political speech, among other things. That it not to say that it is a great bill by any means, and no member of Congress is claiming that it is, but this idea that Democrats are the only winners is proven false by the fact that the Democrats are currently considering whether or not to sink the bill. The most left-wing members of House Democratic Caucus are absolutely furious.

303 DONALD J. TRUMP STATEMENT ON BUDGET DEAL


"If anyone needed more evidence of why the American people are suffering at the hands of their own government, look no further than the budget deal announced by Speaker Ryan. In order to avoid a government shutdown, a cowardly threat from an incompetent President, the elected Republicans in Congress threw in the towel and showed absolutely no budget discipline.

The American people will have to absorb higher deficits, greater debt, less economic liberty and more corporate welfare. Congress cannot seem to help itself in bending to every whim of special interests. How can they face their constituents when they continue to burden our children and grandchildren with debts they will never be able to repay? Our government is failing us, so we must do something about it. Who knows how bad things will be when the next administration comes in and has to pick up the pieces?

The only special interest not being served by our government is the American people. It is time we imposed budget discipline by holding the line on spending, getting rid of waste, fraud and abuse, and by taking on our debt. To do these things, we need a President who can lead the fight to hold Congress and the rest of government accountable. Together, we can Make America Great Again."

As much as I generally dislike appropriators, I find it troubling that some rank-and-file members seem to think that practically everything should be settled via an appropriations bill when an authorizing committee could also solve the problem. I also feel that states often rely too much on the federal government to solve their problems when they could pass legislation or sue. The Appropriations Committees are not going to solve everything, especially when you consider that appropriators have their own interests, and that those interests sometimes conflict with their fellow members.

Look at previous omnibus bills and note the trend on the Republican side. When you have certain members of your own party pledging to vote against a bill prior to negotiations, it lessens your leverage. Furthermore, the members who "vote no, hope yes" are cowards because they really want the legislation to pass but make excuses so that they can pretend they took a stand. If these same members want Republican appropriators from both bodies to draft a mostly Republican bill, then they are going to have to participate in the process. Again, both bodies have vote thresholds they have to meet, and every Republican vote lost means that the appropriators have to try to capture more Democratic votes. Process often dictates outcomes.

315 I appreciate Miss80s detailed comments, but she seems to have missed my point. Can she -- or anyone else -- answer this for me?

Because of the Senate filibuster -- and Harry Reid's willingness to abuse it -- nothing meaningful gets passed except when it's rolled into a big omnibus. But nothing can get put in the omnibus that will invite an Obama veto that would Shut Down the Government because that would mean that the Congressional Republicans were Terrorists Who Have Taken America Hostage.

So in this Omnibus the Republicans have put in a few little things that they hope Obama will let slip by, because they've given him so many things he'll like.

So Harry Reid, backed by Obama's veto, has more influence in Congress than McConnell or Ryan.

Am I missing something?

But when Harry Reid controlled the Senate he could pull any and all legislative tricks to get things like Obamacare pushed through, or to remove the filibuster to get the DC Court judge packed.

The difference is Reid's familiarity with the rules combined with his willingness to abuse them. He ruled the Senate like a dictator instead of allowing the chamber to run as the Founders intended. But I do not want McConnell to act like a dictator. Rather, he should make some common-sense rules changes that would allow more legislation from the House to be passed in the Senate.

324 351: "Am I missing something?"

Yes. McConnell immediately restored the filibuster and did away with the nuclear option to give his caucus cover to "oppose" big ticket items the Establishment wanted. So, say, Rubio could flap his arms and claim he was opposed to corporate welfare for his latest Miami patron but there simply weren't sixty Republicans there to stop it ("send money!"). Reinstating the old filibuster was McConnell's first act. Now, say, if TPP were only to have 54 or so votes, he would reinstate the nuclear option in a nanosecond.

This has become the most corrupt government in human history and I include the old Soviet Union and Nazi Germany, along with all the kleptocracies in Latin America. While it most likely is a waste of time, I'm voting for Trump primarily to destroy this monster. Donald Freaking Trump seemingly is the only possible way to stave off a violent and bloody revolution that will make Ferguson resemble a five-year-old girl's birthday party every five minutes.

325 I'm thinking there's probably no need for me to keep saying "Fuck the GOP."

326 The GOP seems to be working extra special hard to lose the elections this cycle.
