Our Nation Under Siege


Mantis Manny is at the Table

Good Morning, Breakfastpoppers. Today is Wednesday, March 25, 2015. Our pious friend, Mantis Manny, is with me at the breakfast table. Manny has just learned that our open borders are opening once again. Although we have immigration laws on the books, the Obama administration has chosen to discard and disregard them. Nothing good can come of this. Manny would like to share his thoughts about this issue. He has asked for the pleasure of your company at the breakfast table. Manny will be serving homemade banana bread. I will be serving homemade Irish coffees. We hope to see you soon.


The Magic Wand

Thank you all for joining me this morning. The Obama administration is using its magic wand to re-shape the nation. Right now more than 30,000 illegal aliens are being re-located to American cities. This follows the first wave of illegals that entered the country with President Obama's blessing. The illegals come from El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Mexico. The Obama administration does a good job talking about returning illegals, but the reality is quite different. The Department of Homeland Insecurity confirmed that it released more than 30,000 illegal aliens into neighborhoods throughout America. This isn't good news at all.


Rising Crime

The ugly truth is that crimes being committed by illegals is on the rise. In December, 4,317 charges were filed against illegal alien pedophiles in the State of North Carolina. This is just one state and one type of crime. The full picture is catastrophic. On top of these figures, the DHS has released almost 166,000 convicted criminal illegal aliens into the states since April 2014. Many of these illegals were convicted of homicide, sexual assault, kidnapping and aggravated assault. The only reason these stats were made public is because Judicial Watch filed a lawsuit against the DHS for failing to respond to a Freedom of Information Act request. The DHS ordered more than 700,000 non-criminal illegal aliens to deport themselves! They seem to have chosen to remain just where they are. Oh my, why am I not surprised?


A New Threat

Congress is considering new immigration laws that would open the borders to "guest workers" from the Middle East and Asia. I am quite sure that unemployed Americans will not consider this move by Congress a welcome change. It is not just jobs at stake, it is the safety of every American citizen. Why don't we just print up an open invitation to jihadists and welcome them with open arms, and I am not talking about weapons? A move like this is completely thoughtless and dangerous. Experts are warning Congress that this foolish plan would eliminate certain tech and IT jobs for American citizens. Experts are also warning that this influx of illegals will pose an enormous threat to our national security. Citizens of Muslim countries already have a way into America. They arrive here as refugees in re-settlement programs, as students who attend our nation's universities, or as employees of an American company. Proponents of this move argue that the United States has a "skilled labor shortage." If we do have a shortage, let's ramp up education in the nation and produce our own professionals. Many opponents of this scheme, point at that the notion of a labor shortage in Silicon Valley is a myth. Allowing a massive influx of Middle Eastern and Asian immigrants into America is akin to playing with matches. If this ill-advised plan comes into effect, we will be opening our doors to terrorism. These workers would come from Saudi Arabia, Pakistan and Iran. Is Congress planning on playing a cosmic joke on Americans? It certainly seems that way.


Help Wanted

We need help in this country, but it isn't "guest workers." We need representatives who put our interests before the interests of corporate America or politicians. We need protection from an administration that is trying to re-shape our nation in ways that will change forever who and what we stand for. We need protection from people we elect who immediately forget that they work for us. We need protection from a president who makes his own laws and spits on those we have. We need to hold people accountable for the bad job they do fulfilling their obligations to our nation. We need help and protection, and right now there is a drastic shortage of both. God Bless America!

Pop and Manny,

When the government refuses to enforce the law, normally law-abiding citizens may be driven to vigilante action out of frustration and desperation. The leftist who are behind the lawlessness would decry such a reaction but what is the choice when the law is ignored?.

A couple suggestions.....one, until we get the economy in good shape, and we have unemployment down among our own citizens, I'm all for closing all borders to all immigration. Second, I think until we get these problems solved, we should send all members of Congress abroad and not allow them back into this country until they have passed legislation (from abroad) that actually helps U.S. citizens. I'm pretty sure neither of those ideas will be implemented, but oh well.

Tell me again why you voted twice for Obama as president? lol

People going through the formal immigration process, have to swear to their allegiance to the US, the illegal turned de facto citizen only has to swear to use as many American resources that they can.

I worked in Silicon Valley for ten years, and yes there are a lot of foreigners working in the hi tech field. Many of them are working under an H1B program that was created where these people had the necessary skills and education to fill jobs that didn't have enough applicants.

There are also many people from a foreign country like Iran, Syria, other Middle Eastern countries, but they are also American Citizens.

Asians, which include India and Pakistan do have the hi tech skills. And a fair amount of hi tech work goes to their countries as outsourced.

So far, we the Americans have not been replaced by them, but as you mention that may change in the near future.

The current immigration process is not working as it puts illegals at the head of the line. A line of many foreigners that spend time, money and who really want a chance in America. The bulk of them are turned away, as would the bulk of the illegals if they went through the immigration process.

Additionally, with an increasing US population of over 340 million people isn't it time we took the anchor baby program to task.

Who is going to pay for all of these illegals turned de facto US citizen?

The ever shrinking middle class.

I understand that President Obama is going to buy the mansion that was used on Magnum PI in Hawaii.

How do you do that on the salary of the president?

Good Morning Tom,

It seems that far too many people are willing to accept whatever comes their way. Politicians know that and Obama knows that better than anyone. So many things are happening to change our nation that it is almost impossible to keep up. Certainly, Congress is nowhere to be found. Lying is the norm in government and the average Joe can't fight their way to the truth. I hate to quote Clinton, but it will take a village. See you at the Inn.

Good Morning billy,

I love your suggestions. Congress might as well be overseas for all the good they do. See you at the Inn, and we can dream about a nation without politicians.

Good Morning brad,

Last things first. Obama is a Chicago boy, and somehow he comes up with the money. Didn't he buy his place in Chicago with the help of a crook? As for immigration, we need to shut down our borders, deport the thugs and do things the way they were meant to be done. We do have laws. All we need to do is enforce them. See you at the Inn.

I read this morning where they have discovered Harry Reid is again guilty of securing visas for individuals who don't qualify for various reasons. He was assisted in this by someone high-up in Homeland Security.

This link will give you some idea of what those we pay to guard the hen house for us are actually doing. Yet they will never be prosecuted and we all know that.

I agree with you, and I am congratulating Mantis and yourself for the hub. Raising a Bear Claw and coffee to salute you both.

@ OldPoolman Oh my gosh Mike, dare you question the integrity of Harry Reid? Everyone knows he (and Pelosi) are the salt of the earth! http://s1.hubimg.com/u/8564824_f496.jpg

Why don't you spend your time attacking a real ‘Scary…Dangerous…Slimy' guy (according to Donny Deutsch on MSNBC) like Ted Cruz! Can you believe that? Donny Deutsch, the same liberal bozo who was foolish enough to defend Harry Reid's statement analogizing ObamaCare opponents to those who resisted the abolition of slavery, right? I think it is obvious the 'Scary…Dangerous…Slimy" guy isn't Ted Cruz but Donny Deutsch (and Harry Reid).

Well, Obama did promise change and he kept his word. His version of change is tearing our nation apart.

Billybuc, brilliant idea.

tsad - It seems this latest Reid trick was getting visas for those who could contribute $500 K to 1 Million bucks.

I get this funny feeling that Harry was able to put a substantial amount of this money in his own pocket. But then I could be wrong. After all he is there to watch out for us little people and this could almost be considered bribe money.

With the rate they are going, we will have a criminal on every block.

Even with the courts granting a delay, Obama still does his thing. What is even worse is that Congress just lets him. What a world we live in!

Remember when Castro used to put his criminals on boats to the US?

I am glad our virtual Inn is not in a border state. Off to the bar.....

Obummer promised to transform the country, and by letting in 10's of thousands of untrackable illegal aliens, he's insured that America is transformed in ways that can't be undone, no matter what anyone says.

Congress is made up almost entirely of unprincipled, bought and paid for men and women. The two partys are corrupt in the way that's a reminder of the Roman Senate, which could be readily bought.

Thanks for the article. Voted up, interesting and useful.

pop.....After nearly 4 years, I must say that besides being very informative and politically educational, your hubs are "healthy" for me.

Each time I read a new hub by you, it's like aerobics. My heart rate increases & my respiration as well. I feel the blood rush to my face and I also feel the need to get up and walk off the anger. Sometimes I'll even open the door and take deep breaths of fresh air, so that the top of my head doesn't blow!...I get to stretch my legs and work the joints.

All good for the body. Hey, it even helps my mental health because I give my self a pep talk about "hanging in there and having faith that HELP is coming....that there is hope if we can just make it to 2016, w/o losing our sanity or worse.".....So if anyone happens to mention that I look mighty healthy, I will tell them I owe it all to your writing.

I can't say anything more because I will definitely get banned.....Peace!

UP++ tweeted & Pinned.

Good Morning fp,

I now know I am not alone. I have the same reaction as you the minute I turn on the news. I began writing in order to get myself under control. POP actually means Pissed Off Patti! Love you and see you at the Inn.
