Obama Immigration Plan - More Proof he is a two face liar

    MikeNVposted 6 years ago

    Obama is against the Law passed by the people of Arizona who as a majority support it because he views it as violating civil rights.

    Now in his proposal for reform we have:

    "It would create a national ID -- which is dubbed a "biometric social security card." Though Democrats insist that it is not an ID card and can only be used for employment purposes."

    Biometric social security card.  That's right DNA or Fingerprints MUST be given that identify you. Of course this will only be used for employment purposes.  Of course it will!  Just like now where you must use your Social Security Card to get a drivers license, go to college, and a host of other uses.  The social security card with biometric identifier - that doesn't violate your rights.

    Checking suspected criminals on the roadside is wrong, but tagging every single man woman and child with a biometric identifier... that's just fine.

    Welcome to the New World Order.  Go ahead and drink the Kool-Aid you can trust the Federal Government... sure you can.

    What do we have proof of?  The idea (if you check) is a bipartisan proposal by Chuck Schumer and Lindsey Graham TO President Obama. As far as I could tell, there is no response from the White House and I can find no promise from Obama that he would NOT consider a tamper-proof ID as a  way of closing employment loopholes.

    So I don't see the justification for  the '2-faced liar' assertion. To solve the problem of illegal immigration, a bunch of people will have to quit posturing and start working. I particularly commend Lindsey Graham for his involvement. He will certainly be targetted by the teabaggers as has McCain and Florida's Republican governor, Crist for crossing the aisle.

    Much as the nuts in the GOP complain about Demorats not being 'bipartisan' - the GOP stamps out any Republican with a williingness to  partner on solving problems. Once this trend is identified by the average moderate voter, the fringe groups who have taken over the GOP will be rejected or a 3rd party will replace the GOP as irrelevent.

      Doug,  with all due respect-  when has ObamaNation ever promised truth?
      As far as calling him president -  yeah President of Kenya. But if you research it- I don't think that even Kenya even wants the liar back.
      Here is something to think about that is TRUTH-I found this today and I really have to share it- it says:

      FINALLY, OUR JUDICIAL IS AWAKENING.
      VERY QUIETLY OBAMA'S CITIZENSHIP CASE REACHES THE SUPREME COURTAP- WASHINGTON D.C.- (no name was given) I guess so that the person could keep their job so that a FAKE PRESIDENT can't get him fired...

      In a move certain to fuel the debate over Obama's qualifications for the presidency, the group "Americans for Freedom of Information" has Released copies of the President Obama's college transcripts from Occidental College.  Released today, the transcript from the school indicates that Obama, under the name BARRY SOETORO,  received financial aid as a (FOREIGN STUDENT) from Indonesia as an undergraduate.The transcript was released by Occidental College in compliance with a court order in a suit brought by the group in the Superior Court of California.   Hmmm- So far I agree with Mike that the man is a two face LIAR and in my book he is a  terrorist to other countries and to ours! Now I will continue what was written-
      The transcript shows that Obama (Soetoro) applied for financial aid and was awarded a fellowship for foreign students from the Fulbright Foundation Scholarship program.  To Qualify,  for the scholarship,  a  student  must  claim foreign  citizenship. It further states:  This document would seem to provide the smoking gun that many of Obama's  detractors have been seeking.  Along with the evidence that he WAS first born in Kenya and there is no record of him ever applying for US citizenship, this is looking pretty grim.  continued on next reply --

        Finally Our Judicial is Awakening - Continued-

        The news has created a firestorm at the White House as the release casts increasing doubt  about Obama's legitimacy and qualification to serve as President article titled, "Obama Eligibility Questioned,"  leading some to speculate that the story may overshadow economic issues on Obama's first official visit to the U.K.   In a related matter, under growing pressure from several groups, Justice Antonin Scalia announced that the Supreme Court agreed on Tuesday to hear arguments concerning Obama's legal eligibility to serve as President in a case brought by Leo Donofrio of New Jersey.  This lawsuit claims Obama's  dual citizenship disqualified him from serving as president. 

        Donofrio's case is just one of 18 suits brought by citizens demanding proof of Obama's Citizenship or qualification to serve as president.  Gary Kreep of the United States Justice Foundation has released the results of their investigation of Obama's campaign spending.  This study estimates that Obama has spent upwards of $950,000 in campaign funds in the past year with eleven law firms in 12 states for legal resources to BLOCK disclosure of  any of his personal records.  Mr. Kreep indicated that the investigation is still ongoing, but that the final report will be provided to the U.S. Attorney General,  Eric Holder.  Mr Holder has refused to comment on the matter.

          FINALLY, OUR JUDICIAL IS AWAKENING.
          VERY QUIETLY OBAMA'S CITIZENSHIP CASE REACHES THE SUPREME COURT  AP- WASHINGTON D.C  (no name was given)

          It continued to state:

                                      Subject : The Issue of his Passport ?

          While I've little interest in getting in the middle of the Obama birth issue,  Paul Hollrah over at  FSM did so yesterday and believes the issue can be resolved by Obama answering ONE SIMPLE QUESTION:
          What passport did he use when he was shuttling between New York,  Jakarta,  and  Karachi ?

          So how did a young man who arrived in New York in early June 1981,  without the price of a hotel room in his pocket,  suddenly come up with the price of a round-the-world trip just a month later?  And once he was on the plane,  shuttling between New York,  Jakarta, and Karachi,  what passport was he  offering when he passed though Customs and Immigration?

          The American people not only deserve to have answers to these questions,  they must have answers.  It makes the debate over Obama's citizenship a rather short and simple one.

          It further continues-

          Q :  Did he travel to Pakistan in 1981,  at  age 20?

          A :  Yes,  by his own admission.

          Q : What passport did he travel under?

          A :  There are only three possibilities.

          1.) He traveled with a U.S...Passport,

          2.) He traveled with a British passport, or

          3.) He traveled with an Indonesia passport.

          Q :  Is it possible that Obama traveled with a U.S. Passport in 1981 ?

          A : No....It is not possible. Pakistan was on the U.S. State Department's  "no travel "  list in  1981.

          Conclusion : When Obama went to Pakistan in 1981 he was traveling either with a British passport,  or an Indonesian passport.

            If he were traveling with a British passport that would provide proof that he was born in Kenya on August 4, 1961,  not in Hawaii as he claims.  And if he were traveling with an Indonesian passport that  would tend to prove that he relinquished whatever previous citizenship he held,   British or American,  prior to being   adopted by his Indonesian step-father in 1997.

            It further states:  Whatever the truth of the matter,  the American people need to know how  he managed to become a  "natural born"  American citizen between 1981-2008.   Given the destructive nature of HIS plans for  America,  as illustrated by his speech before Congress -  and the disastrous spending plan he has presented to Congress,  the  sooner we  learn the truth of all this ,  the better.   If you Don't care that Your President is not a natural born Citizen and in Violation of the Constitution, then forget  this and go into your cocoon.

              Good point Doug..

              Seriously though when a child is born on US soil they become a US citizen
              Due to his father's nationality at time of birth, Barack Obama was a British citizen at birth, then a Kenyan citizen after the 1963 Kenyan Nationality act and so had a Kenyan passport. When his mother married an Indonesian citizen and took Indonesian citizenship in 1966, Barack Obama was granted Indonesian citizenship and had an Indonesian passport. Obama also had a US citizenship and passport because of his mother and being born in HAWAII.

              http://www.factcheck.org/elections-2008 … _usa.html`

              Either way, he's a citizen. This debate is old and there are much more important things to focus on, like the economy, taxes and energy solutions. Or the oil spill that BP and the government failed to act fast enough for.

                    You seem to have a problem with understanding clearly written words.  The issue is not the wording of the law, or the amendments, or the placards of objectors - it is a principle.

                    But the very idea of 'principles' is so clearly beyond your ability to grasp that to explain it further would be a waste of time.

As for the illegal INVADERS and thats what they are invaders they are coming here having anchor babies that are US Citizens by birth. Yet we digress into another more recent and dangerous topic.

    I actually think this is a good idea.. make of that what you will.

    I don't see that there is really any other alternative. Sure we can increase border security, leak tons more tax dollars into a system that OBVIOUSLY isn't working. If they can't get jobs here, they won't come here. I am not saying I am opposed to immigration, however it can be and should be done legally. Not to mention if we can put the kibosh on the amount of illegal immigrants coming here, more and more legal ones can come in who have educational backgrounds and can contribute to our country in a better way.

    The debate is that business owners won't be able to afford $800 for the machines to read them... but can they really afford the fines associated with hiring "illegal immigrants"?

    · $250 to $2,000 fine for each unauthorized individual;

    · $2,000 to $5,000 for each employee if the employer has previously been in violation; or

    · $3,000 to $10,000 for each individual if the employer was subject to more than one cease and desist order.


    What's the harm anyway? All it's going to ensure is that when you get a job, YOU are YOU. That your SSC was not created in a back room somewhere and falsely assigned. It's going to make employers more responsible. Less able to say "oops" I didn't know and make them accountable to appropriate fines.

    Non-citizens can still apply for a work visa and become citizens who contribute to our society by paying taxes. That's the issue anyway, why should we have to pay when they don't? Able to reap the benefits of a healthier government they want to be in and with that have all the same accountability we do.

    Whenever you sign up for a new job you have to give them your SS#, your identification information, how many dependents you have, your current mailing address and for more and more jobs the
    routing number of your bank and account information. What more are you really worried about? Them getting your thumbprint too? They already have it! Probably have since your first field trip to the police station in 5th grade.

      alternate poetposted 6 years ago in reply to this

      I agree with most of what you say here - the point is that it is unnecessary for illegal immigration.  To heavily fine employers would do the job much more efficiently, be much more easy to police, and be much more effective.  Digital ID for everyone is a dream of government itself that seeks more and tighter controls to consolidate its own necessity -  and it is an idea counter to every argument for less government from left or right.

      1. Doug Hughes profile image61
        Doug Hughesposted 6 years ago in reply to this

        When you get to an objective analysis you find that employers want a free pass - and they want open borders - or disfuncional closed borders - and employers are quite willing to let cops play whack-a-mole  with illegals, deport them so they can sneak back in. The harasment of dark-skinned people does a lot  for the white culture in the USA who used to control everything and feel that control slipping away as the USA becomes multicultural - and WASP America ceases to be a majority. 

        The ONLY place that border security works is at the point of employment. However this only works is there is SOME methid of determination - WHO is allowed to work.  How this can be done without it being a potentially invasive tool is a serious question.  But if no answer is found to employment verification (with serious - even criminal - penalties) - the issue of border security and illegal aliens is a dog and pony show for the conservative AND liberal peasants.

        "The bill would make it illegal for anyone other than an employer to ask to see the enhanced social security card: "Possession of a fraud-proof social security card will only serve as evidence of lawful work-authorization but will in no way be permitted to serve--or shall be required to be shown--as proof of citizenship or lawful immigration status. It will be unlawful for any person, corporation; organization local, state, or federal law enforcement officer; local or state government; or any other entity to require or even ask an individual cardholder to produce their social security card for any purpose other than electronic verification of employment eligibility and verification of identity for Social Security Administration purposes. No personal information will be stored on the electronic chip contained within the social security card other than the individual's name, date of birth, social security number, and unique biometric identifier" ~huffington post

        All the biometric identifier is is a digital fingerprint. Like I said earlier.. "the man" already has it.

        I agree with Doug and alternate as stated previously when you say that the only effective way to police illegal immigrations is through the employer. Right now it is almost impossible for employers to be fined at all. Why? Because there is no firm documented way to determine if the employer knew or not that the immigrant was/is illegal. Thus, the only solution is some sort of national ID.

          alternate poetposted 6 years ago in reply to this

          But you already have ID, your driving license and birth certificate, bank details, etc etc.  Any employer can check these to their satisfaction already I am sure.

          The whole thing reeks of duplicity to me, cheap labour has always been the mainstay of American production, and always there has been political double-dealing.  The unions were effectively neutralised by union bosses turning them into mafia style organisations, and of course forced labour for poor immigrants never mind the direct slavery.

            Where the heck is the Mike guy who created this topic anyway?!

            Your right, I already have id.. valid point and it does seem like it would be a pain to get a new SSC, however.. if they do what was originally proposed, which was the national ID, then it could and would be implemented at the time of my drivers license or for those without them state ID renewals. Now that seems to me the most realistic approach, also perhaps to some the least intrusive. Though if I am not mistaken, this has already been thrown out, so that leaves the new SSC perk;  the "identifier" would only be shown to employers.. so to others that would be less intrusive. The fact of the matter is, there is no easy answer. I see both sides, however when it comes to a solution, the only one that makes sense to me, is the new card. I could care less whether it's my DL or my SSC.

            They already know about me. I'm not scared smile

            As for double dealing, yes there is always that, people will always be used for cheap labour, which is why I don't understand why people are fighting the solution so much. I am quite liberal and I am not worried, maybe I can be convinced otherwise.. but so far I am not. As for poor immigrants and slavery in the economic struggle they experience, I would hope that by enforcing a legalization process that actually works we will see a decrease in farm practices along with a decrease in human trafficking. With this law change and implication, perhaps a desparation to get here that leads to shady people taking advantage of desparate people will end.

            If we can actually get to a point where the "illegal" part of immigrants is taken out, perhaps we can look at and focus some resources in a way to offer better, more legitimate opportunity for them in the "land of the free", rather than trying to figure out if they belong here or not.

              There are freedom issues around ID tagging that go way back, the possibility that government can know who and where you are at all times is not frightening to you now, but imagine if the far right got into power and started 'cracking down' on those who oppose their views - maybe for example they wanted to force you to attend chapel 3 times a week, or maybe you become an 'objector' if they come and take away your foreign neighbour.

              This has happened many times before in history, Hitler's Germany is the most obvious, but in my mother's time in England, 20's to the 40's she was forced to attend chapel, was not allowed to speak her native tongue in her native country (Wales) and many other humiliations imposed from her teachers, ministers and employers.

              It is not unusual for these things to come into law through well intentioned administration, but later admin may not be so liberal.

                Ok, last post of the night, then I am off to catch zzz's.

                They are not proposing a tracking device. They are proposing a card with a finger print on it that can be read by a computer. If it were anything more than that, I have faith in hackers all over the country catching on faster than the white house can say "oh shit".

                We are not being forced to attend chapel or to wear a yellow star that will label, segregate and mutilate us.

                All thats being proposed is finding a way to enforce a law that is already in place.

                Personally, I don't think it's up to us anyway, who lives where. Somewhere along the way society really screwed up, repeatedly. But that is a forum topic for another day.

They have your bank account numbers too, especially if your tax refunds are being sent electronically...and far more means are capable of being utilized against persons by the government that the implications stated here regarding this id card are kind of silly.

    I have no problem with an identification system that will be more difficult to tamper with. Fingerprints have been used for thousands of years as a means of identifying property and identity.

    Now, if real reforms, like the DREAM Act, can be implememented, then we will see positive and effective action. But, it is stalled in committee.

        I am playing - he is being a troll - he is also Padrino, TKSenseless, and several more avatars that run around commenting like retarded children in an adult playground.

          Your constant insults do not reflect well on you, sir.

            your constant following me around and posting drivel does not reflect well on you - how about we call it a day and you go annoy someone else and I won't insult you any more ?

              How about I continue to express my views and you just grow up a little and stop with the insults?

                that's fine - so you won't post any more one line insulting comments to get the thread off track and I will stop insulting you - ok

                  There are no conditions. YOU just need to stop with the insults, if you are capable of that level of self control. Are you?

                    You have a serious reverse polarity defect - you started insulting me as soon as I got here - but you don't like it when you get it back. 

                    Maybe you could work a little on the self esteem, go back and finish school maybe?  get to grips with the concepts of discussion, information, reasoned argument - then I guess we can get along just fine.

    It is nice to see a well balanced thread title with "a two faced liar" in it. smile

    AP - I understand the theoretical threat of an ID system. But the problem that's here now is real. Employers want an escape so they can keep hiring illegal labor. There is a thriving business in counterfeit documents. They don't have to be good enough to fool a cop - just good enough to give an employer an escape from liability.

    There is the conflict - and it's not pretty.  Either the current system with the prospect of draconian law enforcement which satisfys the blood lust of conservatives but doesn't address the problem - or an effective ID system with the privacy concerns you voice.

    The 3rd effective option would require a virtual seal of the border - and I mean cutting off trade and tourism, a cure worse than the problem. On the right or the left, if you want to solve if, you are going to have to square off with the reality.

      Or of course you could put in an illegal alien visitors permit that would allow you all to take advantage of the near slave wage labour the economy needs and leave them in peace!  and then send them back home when times are hard.

        The economy doesn't need the illegal, exploitive conditions encouraged by illegal immigration.

          Exploitative conditions are your history, from exploiting immigrants to direct slavery, to the mob control of the unions - why stop now when the economy needs it and they are there anyway, just legitimise the current exploitation, better for you and better for them !

            So you are in favor of illegal and exploitative working conditions? That's very unfortunate.

        Except that doing this is a gross violation of human rights. Everything you just said and implied you were against. If people become citizens and we have a working system then they can work here and receive livable wages. We need to take out the black market of employers and doing so will address and perhaps cure the advantages taken of these people. The consequences of slave labor and human trafficking over the border can be stopped, finally and we can offer them the rights and responsibilities that come with being US citizens.
