So what's the deal with this DACA?



What kind of heartless mean spirited evil people would punish innocent children like this? Cancelling DACA? I mean what on earth? How mean can you get?


So that's what I've been hearing now. And a lot worse. So what the heck? Why can't we just keep DACA? I mean, after all, it's the children, right?


So I guess the argument would come down to this. DACA was an illegal and unconstitutional executive order bypassing congress to get something done the Kenyan wanted done. He had already stated on about a dozen times he didn't have the authority to do it. That the law didn't allow it. That he couldn't just make it happen. But what changed? An election. And needing the Mexican vote. So he did it.


Now, let's just assume for a minute the left is right. This is a good thing. Despite it being a clear violation of the constitution, let's pretend it's a good thing. So we say, OK, let it stand. Well, what then? What then is we just said the constitution, and the separation of powers means absolutely nothing. That if the President wants some legislation, and congress says no, then he can just create it by fiat. Like a King would. So what then? Well, what then is Donald Trump can repeal obamacare with a pen. Or build a wall. Or any damn thing he wants. The left just made the argument for it. They said if congress won't pass the law, the President can just order it into existence.


Kind of a bad thing, no? Sometimes our friends on the left just don't seem to think things through. I suppose that's a component of the mental illness that makes them liberals in the first place. But still.


DACA was going to be overturned by the Supreme Court. The already overturned DAPA which had the same constitutional flaws as this one. The legal challenge was going forward. It was not going to stand. It couldn't stand. It would rule the constitution invalid for all intents and purposes. So it was going to end.


But like everything else, the left is going ballistic over this. One more cause to screech and scream about. One more thing to lose their minds, what tiny bit they have left.


I think this was just a time bomb left intentionally by obama anyway. He knew if a Republican won, it would be an issue. If a democrat won, it would stand as is. He didn't care about the illegal aliens, it was a political move.


By the way, this will be my last post of the week. Leaving tomorrow for California on vacation and won't have a computer and I'm not about to try to post from my phone. So I'll be back in a couple of weeks. See you all later.

    It just totally baffles me why some immigrants think they can ignore the legal steps to becoming an American citizen. Obama acted unilaterally when he created DACA - that in itself is contrary to protecting the Constitution.

    http://nypost.com/2017/09/04/what-the-dreamers-really-need-is-compromise-in-congress/

    What the media and the anti Trump folks want everyone to believe is that President Trump is going to send mass troops to round up the illegals and deport them. That is nothing but a scare tactic the anti Trump folks want the illegals to believe.

    Congress has 6 months to fix this - like what Sarah Huckabee Sanders said yesterday " With all due respect, I don’t think the American people elected Congress to do things that were easy. They elected them to make a government that works, to work properly, and to work for American people. And that’s their job. And if they can’t do it, then they need to get out of the way and let somebody else who can take on a heavy lift and get things accomplished. "

  4. As to DACA...I will say it again: these dreamers need to have a firm, no-nonsense discussion with their parents about the consequences of breaking the law.

    And all their yelling and protesting reminds me of the brats in the grocery store who throw tantrums until Mom hands them a lollipop to shut them up...
    Same analogy applies to the left wing progressives and handing out freebies that the rest of us have to pay for.

  5. Thank Trump for ending DACA.
    The Trump administration was right to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. DACA was unilaterally created by Barack Obama and allowed children brought to the United States illegally by their parents to stay here. It was bad for immigration enforcement and encouraged more illegal immigration. DACA also provided benefits reserved for American citizens and legal immigrants. Why come to the U.S. legally if you have the same benefits by coming illegally? The U.S. must take a step-by-step approach to our immigration challenges, starting with border security and enforcement of immigration laws, then turning to improving the legal immigration system. Once that is done, we can figure out what to do with those still living here illegally. I is a simple if they would pull their heads out of their asses.

  8. At theresurgent.com: "Trump is Just Not Good at This...not Good at All"

    My question: why not a flat-out repeal of the emperor's order with no 6-month delay?
    Giving 6 months to a congress made up mostly of progressive leftists and that infamous Gang of Eight bunch still firmly ensconced in the rino majority?
    What do you think will get shoved down our throats?
    And if congress is still stumbling around with no solution at the end of the 6 months (which I doubt), we will likely end up with amnesty of some form as Kushners are liberal progressives and most of those in the Trump administration are either Bushies, Clintonistas or tied to both.

    If you wish to say I've lost faith, you're right...I have.

    Trust no one. All others pay cash.

    The system has become corrupt with lifers, special interests and good old boy/girl system which live under different rules.
    Then we have race baiters, the whole gay thing, BLM, antifa, people still being hateful on election outcome..........

  27. The "DACA Advantage".

    http://www.collegedata.com/cs/data/college/college_pg03_tmpl.jhtml?schoolId=940

    KU tuition:

    Out-of-state: $28,239

    In-state: $11,455

    DACA people in this country illegally, breaking our laws, and whose family and they have had more than enough time to do the right thing: $11,455

    A law-abiding U.S. citizen "child" who wants to attend KU, but lives in another state, must pay more than double ($16,784) for tuition than a so-called "Dreamer" who snuck into this country illegally, with or without family, and whom none had any intention of doing things legally.

    DACA is possibly the only "law" in existence that specifies that a person MUST have been breaking the law for a MINIMUM amount of time to apply for the generous American taxpayer funded benefits. How crazy is THAT?

    Minimum age to apply for DACA is 15. Maximum age is 31. "Those poor little 31 year old CHILDREN! How COULD you?!"

    https://www.uscis.gov/archive/consideration-deferred-action-childhood-arrivals-daca#guidelines

    I wonder if we should demand that Congress demand that any public college that receives federal funding of any kind either drop their "in-state tuition for illegals", or drop their out-of-state tuition, altogether?

    That would create more socially-just "equality". Why should people who aren't even supposed to be here get much lower tuition than ANY citizen, from ANY state?

    Not to mention the finite number of openings for colleges (or jobs, for that matter).

    Kansas DACA illegals get taxpayer grants/scholarships, in-state tuition, graduates...and what? Takes "jobs Americans will not do?"

    All because they have proven they have been continuously breaking the law for a certain number of years?! WTF?!😨

  28. Staying true-to-form, the anti-Constitutional commies of the Urinal "Editorial Board" (Marxist Propagandists) chime in with their usual display of ignorance (hatred) of the law, and more snarling vitriol towards the Trump administration.

    http://cjonline.com/opinion/editorials/2017-09-06/editorial-daca-repeal-cruel-and-pointless

    What was "cruel and pointless" was Imam Obama's cynical election year ploy to promise illegals something he had absolutely no authority to do, and which he knew was unconstitutional and would eventually implode.

    "Why not maintain DACA while Congress develops a more concrete proposal"?

    Because...if they did THAT, they'd still do NOTHING, YOU MORONS!

    Liberals are bashing the President who is trying to FINALLY force Congress to fix this mess, while praising the people who created the mess!

    BREAKING
    VOTER FRAUD ALERT: MORE THAN 5,000 NEW HAMPSHIRE PRESIDENTIAL VOTERS MAY NOT LIVE IN STATE

    http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2017/sep/7/voter-fraud-alert-over-5000-new-hampshire-presiden/

    By Rowan Scarborough - The Washington Times - Updated: 1:11 p.m. on Thursday, September 7, 2017

    Over 6,000 individuals registered to vote in New Hampshire on Election Day Nov. 8 using out-of-state driver’s licenses and since then, the vast majority have neither obtained an in-state license nor registered a motor vehicle.

    Speaker of the New Hampshire House Shawn Jasper, a Republican, issued the findings on Thursday based on inquiries he made to the Department of State, which oversees elections, and the Department of Safety.

    Since election days, Republicans have charged that a significant number of non-resident Democrats, principally from Massachusetts, flowed into New Hampshire to vote illegally, tilting close elections to their party. Mr. Jasper’s findings give credence, though not outright proof, to those allegations.

    The numbers read this way:
    6,540 people voted using out-of-state licenses
    As of Aug. 30, 1014, about 15 percent had been issued N.H. driver’s licenses.

    Of the remaining 5,526, only 3.3 percent had registered a motor vehicle in New Hampshire.
    Over 80 percent, 5,313, who used non-N.H. driver’s licenses, had neither a state licenses nor had registered a motor vehicle.

    There are 196 people today who are being investigated for voting illegally both in New Hampshire and in other states.

    Hillary Clinton defeated Donald Trump in News Hampshire by 2,736 votes.
    Democratic Sen. Maggie Hassan defeated incumbent Republican Kelly Ayotte by 1,017 votes.

    Last February, while meeting with senators at the White House, Mr. Trump said he lost New Hampshire because thousands of Massachusetts residents crossed state lines to vote. He also said Mrs. Ayotte lost for the same reason: illegal voting.

    The liberal media dismissed his allegations. The Boston Globe called them “groundless.”

    The president has appointed a special commission to investigate voter integrity, led by Vice President Mike Pence.

    Democrats oppose the panel and have called for its demise.

    At least two scientific surveys show that a larger number of non-citizens register and vote illegally in U.S. elections. One poll found that a large majority vote Democrat.

  39. The sun just released a massive solar flare. In fact, this is the largest solar flare emitted in the past decade, and the earth has already been affected by blackouts.

    NASA has reported a huge solar flare was emitted by the Sun and it is the most powerful one since 2006. This solar flare has already caused some radio blackouts on Earth and it may cause aurora visible as far south as London. On the morning of September 6, scientists watched as two X-flares were unleashed by the sun.

    The stronger flare was the second of the two emitted by the Sun yesterday morning and it was seen by NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO). At 5:10 AM EDT, the Sun unleashed an X2.2 flare, with X-class denoting the most intense flares. Then, at 8:02 AM EDT, a much bigger flare measuring X9.3 was unleashed. By comparison, the last time we saw a flare this big was in 2006, which measured at X9.0. The number shows the intensity, with X2 being twice as intense as X1, X3 three times as intense, and so on.

    The loops of plasma emitted during these two flares were ten times the size of planet Earth. Scientists got to watch the massive coronal mass ejection from these flares, which can be seen below in the gif provided.

Ya know, Sarge, I'm just a sinner as are we all, but This morning I made coffee, started with my usual news checks and this wisdom from the Bible keeps talking in my head, that verse about "a way that seemeth right to a man but the end thereof is death". Not saying anything about literal death or any such, but spiritually I honestly believe that those in power, with the decisions they are making (and this goes for ALL of them) are grinding away at the destruction of America and we will pay a very heavy price for it.
      God's laws matter above all else and those who survive the coming fall will have a hell of a cleanup job to deal with, more than any natural disasters He's trying to warn us with.

    “Rep. Yoder’s vote against relief for American families still reeling from Hurricane Harvey would be reckless and cruel on its own, but the fact that it was also a vote for a government shutdown and defaulting on America’s debt gives new meaning to the word irresponsible,” said Rachel Irwin, a DCCC spokeswoman."

    Democrats are either totally ignorant, or flat-out lying, when they say that crap. And what is irresponsible is tying politically-motivated crap tht is unrelated to emergency disaster funding!

    A short government shutdown will NOT cause the U.S. to "default". It hasn't done so the past 17 times it was done. Levin explains it well in this 30-minute segement:

    About the 'finance and insurance' industries:

    "These hard-working individuals stay on top of the complexities of finance — whether it be new financial products or changes in tax laws — to help us be good managers of our own money and plan for the future."

    "Not only do those who work in the finance and insurance sector make a significant impact on the lives of individual Kansans, but they contribute an enormous amount to the health of our state economy."

    Uh-huh. 'Financial advisor': A person who makes money convincing a client to gamble the client's money on certain investments. The advisor assumes zero risk, and will get paid whether the investment is profitable, or wipes the client out.

    'Financial Manager': An advisor who is given permission to make transactions "for the benefit of the client". Those people often charge a fee "just for being", plus a "transaction fee" for every transaction to "reallocate investments" (in the client's best interest, of course). Those people are "astute" with their crystal balls, see 'opportunity' often, and are likely to make many transactions to maximize earnings (in the client's best interest, of course)....(plus it is quite lucrative to skim a bit from the client for every transaction). They don't often invest a client's money in the same things as they would their own, because they are less concerned about the client's risks than their own. Of course, they will attempt to keep the client at least a minimal positive earnings status over the long run, for fear of losing the sucker...I mean...'client'...altogether.

    'Financial management' people most resemble "parasites", in that they live only from feeding off the host organism.

    "Insurance". A scheme in which people continually pay (often forcefully, as in auto insurance, if you own a vehicle) a significant portion of their earnings every month into a pool of money, under the guise that when something bad happens that damages property or persons, money from that pool will be paid to the victim.

    In reality, insurance companies make it very difficult to get money to cover anything, on purpose. One 'i' not dotted correctly, one 't' not properly crossed, and it's back to square one. Mounds of paperwork, and/or hours of crashing/freezing/login-losing website work, just to make one feel like just giving up.

    Of course, insurance rates of ALL kinds continually rise, "to cover the claims of everyone else". A person can have gone 40 years without EVER having made an auto or homeowner's claim, having paid $100's of thousands, and the very first minor claim that is anything over the deductible will SPIKE your insurance rates, for a very long time.

    So, yes...it is true: "...those who work in the finance and insurance sector make a significant impact on the lives of individual Kansans..."

    BUT, they are also companies in which retirement accounts are heavily invested, so their profits help our retirements.

    Probably 'helps' at a much, much lower rate than the ongoing cumulative massive amounts we pay, though.

    But, nice Job, Nick Jordan, trying to shine a glowing, sparkling light on parasitic industries.

  67. Little Matty, the Johnson, has just written the absolute most insane article EVER! And, that's saying a lot, because all of his nonsense is pure idiocy. But, today's piece of propaganda is so crazy full of crap, that it has to be his most idiotic, ever.

    Aside from all the obvious lies he crammed in there...just the thought that "Trump should start taking Obama's advice" should land The Johnson in an asylum for the criminally insane!

    How can someone as wrong and crazy and obviously dishonest as Little Matty be allowed to keep that job? He just brought "lunatic" down to a whole new level!

    Sickening. What a moron.

    1. Maybe that is what would be cool start making a blog here about CJ Bullshit, and start countering what they put out. Hell I bet they read this here anyway. Oh and good morning.

    2. Wait Nunya already does that.. silly me.

    3. It's a sure bet the CJ people read this. Nobody forced them to kill their community blog section, so I guess they can deal with the consequences of what they have done. I like the freedom to speak we have here.

      I prefer Trump the President to Trump the Candidate. I'll leave it at that, I'm sure people understand me.

      Just got back from another vacation. We visited Stockholm and while there, Jelena just blurted out that she couldn't live there - too much "multiculturalism." Refugees don't want to stop in Riga - too cold and too few government benefits. I'm guessing this doesn't bother the Latvians much.

      Anyway, the first thing a President has to do as Executive, is make sure the government runs. From my limited perspective (I'm a federal employee, remember) he's doing this far better than it has been done in years. So far, so good.

  70. "We Germans have seen where such doctrines lead. Liberalism tore down the structures that held races and peoples together, releasing the destructive drives. The result was economic chaos that led to millions of unemployed on the one side and the senseless luxury of economic jackals on the other. Liberalism destroyed the people’s economic foundations, allowing the triumph of subhumans. They won the leading role in the political parties, the economy, the sciences, arts and press, hollowing out the nation from inside. The equality of all citizens, regardless of race, led to the mixing of Europeans with Jews, Negro, Mongols, and so on, resulting in the decay and decline of the Aryan race."

    1. So what did I do to deserve this? Point out that the Latvians don't want refugees let in? Do you seriously think Maris Kucinskis (Latvia's PM) is like Adolf? Or I am? No spit?

      Indeed, Jelena mentioned that because I mentioned that if it were less pricey, I could live in Stockholm.

  71. Here we go again, an anon fixated on Hitler. Dude seriously needs to get off that site.
    Liberalism is truly rotting your cerebral cortex. You need help.

    For the record,Liberalism has certainly increased its violenot tendencies in america as of late,don't you think?
    Your peeps in antifa are exactly what Hitler demonstrated, only with a different flavor.
    I'm sure you won't acknowledge that,nor do I expect you to.
    You are simply suffering from an illness.
