Backdoor immigration amnesty – the rumors turn out to be facts


For months there have surfaced rumors that the Obama Administration is feverishly seeking to find ways to keep the Latino voting bloc in its corner for the November elections — from considering presidential pardons for illegal immigrants to suing the state of Arizona to investigating Sheriff Arpaio in Maricopa County, Arizona…

Now it comes out that the latest step is for I.C.E. to stop processing as many deportation cases as possible…

It’s all about keeping the voting blocs in place and working to assure the current Democratic majorities in Washington continue…  That’s the new politics, folks…

General Conway’s words are noteworthy, especially since he is soon retiring

The situations in Iraq and Afghanistan are still trying ones, especially because of the president’s scheduling of withdrawal dates  for American troops…  Increased bombing of civilian targets, as well as military ones, shows that the enemy is quite cognizant that the Americans will not long play a leading role in the  two countries and that the local troops are not ready yet to stand on their own… 

Marine General Conway’s recent comments purposefully bring attention to those spheres in a pointed way, and present an opportunity to repeat a post from July 16 that has a bearing on the topic…

July 16:

Considering the reported ongoing difficulties there, it seems from this vantage point that before too long President Obama is going to declare victory in Afghanistan, maybe sometime between the November Elections and next summer, when the first troops are scheduled to begin withdrawing from the country…

He is in a quandary, though, because he does not want the stigma of being the U.S. President who lost the Afghan War…  But when he initially set a deadline as to when to begin pulling troops out, and at the same time decided to go small in the deployment of needed troops while expanding the role of the military mission, he seemingly erred in a grand way, and that decision is squarely on his shoulders…

Given that the president has a tendency to avoid accepting responsibility, a long tendency to blame the previous administration for everything, it would be no surprise if his advisors have been at work from day one of his presidency drafting arguments on how best to blame President Bush for the Afghanistan failures of the Obama Administration…

Just sayin’…
