SOTU & Immigration

Kevin Drum points out that Obama barely mentioned amnesty in his lengthy State of the Union address. Here's the relatively terse heaping of tripe that the President delivered:
Finally, if we are serious about economic growth, it is time to heed the call of business leaders, labor leaders, faith leaders, and law enforcement – and fix our broken immigration system.  Republicans and Democrats in the Senate have acted.  I know that members of both parties in the House want to do the same. Independent economists say immigration reform will grow our economy and shrink our deficits by almost $1 trillion in the next two decades.  And for good reason: when people come here to fulfill their dreams – to study, invent, and contribute to our culture – they make our country a more attractive place for businesses to locate and create jobs for everyone.  So let’s get immigration reform done this year.

Apparently, America needs more immigrants so more businesses will "locate." Or something. I don't think Obama is even trying to make sense here. He just wants to check this off his box so he can report back to the special interests that he mentioned it in the SOTU.

But he mostly he doesn't want voters who don't like him to notice he's all for amnesty. With Republican politicians winding up to stab Republican voters in the back, the last thing Obama wants to do is get between them.

"Independent economists say that immigration will grow the economy and reduce the deficits".


Sigh. It's just as though that the whole concept of 'Schaeffer's Number' - which we've discussed endlessly here and got down pat, as passed Barry Sotero and the rest of the world by.

To the unawares, 'Schaeffer's Number' is a basic, fundamental natural constant that more or less explains the hidden forces that shape the profane world. To the Steveosphere, at least, it's as fundamental as big G, little g - both gravitational and IQ, or even c squared.

They're really stupid if they think Republicans won't notice when we're about to get stabbed in the back. Every time an amnesty bill comes up for debate, the phones and faxes go nuts. This time won't be any different, no matter what games they play.

I'm still hoping Boehner's just stalling til this session is over, Republicans win back the Senate, and the last Senate amnesty bill heads to the shredder.

Off-topic, but very worth reading.

Massive news from Britain. A senior policeman has just admitted that British law does not rule in vast parts of the country.

Is it this bad in the US yet?

stab Republican voters in the back

Once again: if only. They're not just 'stabbing Republican voters in the back'. They are helping to accelerate the demographic destruction of the country.

I think that the Democrats have now settled in on a strategy that I would have given them if I was in the business of giving political advice to Democrats:

Sit back and take whatever the RINOs and the Stupid Party comes up with on immigration.

Because whatever they come up with, only helps Democrats and hurts Republicans in the long term, and hurts Republicans among their own base in the short term.

But Democrats making too much noise on immigration will hurt Democrats in the short term.

Obama is not for "amnesty". He's for full citizenship, residence and suffrage.

The only immigrants growing the economy are the Chinese buying up houses or business. I thin if there was a robot that can along and replaced farm workers and maids and dry wallers then no body would have wanted to legalized anyone and about at least 4 million Mexicans would have went home since the robots don't their jobs.

I gave up on the Republicans and even the Tea party some time ago. Both always have some leadership that wants to legalized a lot of Hispanics or like some Tea Party leaders will Ted Cruz tech vistas. The right wing can be use against immigration but they are too much into Republican theory to be good on other issues.

Not only are Hispanics more in favor of bigger government than are whites, but Hispanic Republicans are more in favor of bigger government than are white Democrats. Chew on that as the GOP "leadership" tells you that Hispanics are "natural Republicans".

Well, he’s right. Textile and clothing businesses, those cutting edge, high value added manufacturing concerns, have located to Los Angeles in response to the abundant immigrant labor.

Napoleon mentioned this. "Never disturb your enemy when he is about to destroy himself."

When the State of the Union message came on I embarked on a frantic search for some old movie to watch instead. I found something but I can't remember what it was this morning.

Perfect.

The revolt against the open and deliberate policy of race-replacement can not proceed unless the Republican Party is completely destroyed...Amnesty would do this...its the only way.

Get used to it:Amnesty is going to pass one way or another. And when it does, it will be the moment of truth for millions of White Americans..there will be no escape.

Really scary thought: The US may have hit the point of irreversible explosive population growth up to the point of ecological collapse. The only thing that could pevent this is mass expulsions. Secession won't prevent ecological collapse. Remember the Dust Bowl? The ecological collapse of the South West announced itself to the US Congress in the form of a Dark Giant Dust Storm within site of the members of the US Congress who were debating about what to do about the Dust Bowl.

The loathsome Michael Bloomberg openly agitates for making White Americans a racial minority in the US a few days ago-as did the loathsome Chuck Schummer. Michael Bloomberg parks his 100 million dollar luxury yacht in Sag Harbor every Summer and orders his slaves to buy expensive organic steak from Shiavonni's Grovery Store.

Anon -- Don't forget Bill Gates, his harpy of a wife, Bill Clinton, Shrillary! and Bill de Blasio (at least he lives his agenda) and well, the Pope.

Pretty much all non Jews. Heck even the Pope might not be Jewish, can't be certain now can we?

White demographic replacement and destruction is nothing less than the eternal war of Whites against other Whites. Whites HATE HATE HATE each other, always have. Always will. If the WASPY, non-religious folks on the Coasts could nuke every White person in the flyover states they would do so in a heartbeat and sleep soundly. And there is a lot more of them with a lot more power than Chuck Schumer or dead-end Bloomberg. Who is even less relevant than Mitt Romney at this point.

McCain and Zuckerberg probably told him to tone it down, after the elections it will all be taken care of.

To translate from Whiskeyspeak: if whites HATE HATE HATE their fellow whites, then Jews HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE HATEHATE HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE whites. These things are relative, after all.

Everybody's got G**gle now, Whis. The ship has sailed. Jews are 30-40% of the Forbes 400, own the media, etc. Jewish pols vote 100% in lockstep for open borders and demographic annihilation of whites (for whites, the split is 55/45 against). I won't bore with details.
