The Same Amnesty Lie Told Over And Over

Updated on June 11, 2014

Joseph Goebbels had it right when he said, “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”

That is exactly what has been going on during the entire time Obama has been in office. Even when he is caught in lie after lie he keeps repeating the lies. But what does one expect when the person involved in this lied his way into office and had enough sheeple believing him to do it twice? That's some serious wool pulling for low information voters for sure.

A prime example of this principle is what I am about to inform the masses about. It has to do with pulling on the heart strings primarily of the uninformed among us and repeating the illegal immigration lie ad nausea.

The argument (lie) that has been repeated over and over again is a simple one although not verified. It has been said over and over again by the left and it goes, “Immigrants will do the jobs that Americans won’t do.” There is also the "$8 dollar head of lettuce argument" that is a lame statement too." That's another one of those statements I attribute to the loons of the left. The problem is that it is also being used as the chief talking point by some pro-amnesty Republicans. Yes, those critters exist and their eye is on the political side of the argument and not reality.

Since they have joined the loon army of talking heads, also called Democrats, I have to question a few things myself. Where are the statistics that back up such an assertion? For years the Democrats have parroted each other and never offered a shred of proof. The lie has been swirling for so long that no one can say exactly what its origination is. But they have used it as fodder for low information voters since I can remember without any proof. It is just so because they said it is so. Is that information top secret for their eyes only?

So who are these Americans and where are they? Produce a few for our inspection. I've witnessed Americans in my life time doing some disgusting labor that I won't mention here but it involves the word feces so let your imagination run wild. The critical question in the argument for the left, and the dizzy Republicans signing on, is also a simple one. Is granting amnesty to millions of illegal aliens the answer to solving the problem they contend exists? Did it work when Ronald Reagan let the loons of left bamboozle him into believing them?

So is what I hear them saying that granting them amnesty again is the only answer to solving the issues we face? It didn't work the last time it was done so why now?

Once upon a time I thought Congressman Mick Mulvaney from South Carolina had a clue. Turns out he is a Republican moron who thinks rolling over on this issue is going to have his party gaining significant numbers of new voters. Think again Mick. Here's his spin now:

“There are jobs that American citizens will not do. There are jobs that American citizens will not do. We can talk about why that is. We can talk about how our welfare state is broken, how we encourage people not to work, but that doesn’t help the farmer pick his peaches this summer.”

Is he talking about migrant workers or illegal immigrants? Next he'll be spouting that $8 a head for lettuce nonsense. There is no doubt in my mind that our welfare state is broken and needs a serious overhaul. Why don't we start by fixing the system that encourages folks not to work Mr. Brilliant Congressman? When you have to work to eat guess what happens? You work and I encounter those Americans every day as a small business owner who tell me they'll do anything now to have a means to make some money. Surprised? Don't be.

As usual politicians focus on their own agenda of getting reelected to solve a problem. They are usually the problem so think about that. If Americans won't do certain work lets not reinvent the wheel thinking that a short term amnesty fix is the fix. I don't believe it in the first place because I'm out here at times on the mean streets. They obviously aren't. If that is, in fact, the issue then focus on the real issue and not the feel good one.

It's called entitlement reform and it's out of control. So do you want to act like a Democrat or a spineless Republican and choose the strawman "illegal amnesty" fix which does nothing for this nation? It might insure their reelection but if that is their focus do they really need to be holding an office that requires integrity and honesty? So lets do that and make it look like we're doing something when in fact it will only serve to make the entitlement morass even worse than it already is.

The idiots we keep sending to Washington DC need to knock it off and do the hard things it will take to turn around the easy fixes they have chosen in the past thinking we were stupid and they are brilliant. We're stupid for continuing to send many of them back to do more damage. That they clearly see.

I Leave You With This Act Of Lawlessness

We now have thousands upon thousands of children, without adult supervision, being dumped over our southern border in anticipation of receiving amnesty. Who is going to pay the expenses associated with that practice? It's totally out of hand. I lay the blame where it belongs. It belongs to Obama and his Democrat minions who are worried about voter bases and not the good of the American citizens legally here.

QUOTE OF THE DAY BY RONALD REAGAN: “Welfare’s purpose should be to eliminate, as far as possible, the need for its own existence.”

Will I mind if you share these observations with your family and vast array of friends? Not at all. Please be my guest and help inform.

As Always,

The Frog Prince

      You are very spot on with this hub. You see Obama does not care about improving America but in DESTROYING it bit by bit. It is his purpose to exact revenge on the wrongs in America's past. He does not care if the illegals further drain our socioeconomic systems. It is his contention that illegals have the unmitigated right to be here although America can ill afford to support them. Well, the illegals have proven to be problematic. They have NO transferrable nor contributable skills. They will get FREE services which will cost us Americans more in tax dollars. We have been taxed enough and IT'S TIME to return these illegals to their respective countries. We have Americans who are under the belt socioeconomically so to speak. Let us fix our problems, not import them! Frog, voted this one up!

      The only honest answer I can give here is "Congress is a bunch of whores." Big business wants cheap labor and wage compression. And they are willing to finance Congressional campaigns to get it. I don't really blame the corporations, as they have a fiduciary duty to their shareholders to try to maximize profits. But the opposite side of the coin is that Congress has a duty to IT'S shareholders - the American citizens at large. We the People are being thrown under the bus so Congress can keep money flowing in from the Fortune 500 companies and the lobbies that shill for them. This kind of plutocracy will never end until the federal government starts obeying the Tenth Amendment - Article 1, Section 8 powers are all related to matters with an international nexus, but only domestic powers stolen from the States really "sell." Were these usurped domestic powers devolved back to the States, major plutocracy would become a nightmare that would die of its own weight (too many State legislatures would have to be bribed to make plutocracy practical for companies with a multi-state presence).

      Ok Jim, so all these criminals are released into American society because their own country's won't accept them. That causes imminent danger to us. We can't legally keep them imprisoned; and if we do, where is that money coming from to keep them there? Maybe we put them on freighters or C-130's and send them to a desolate island. England did that when they sent their miscreants to Australia. It all worked out. Besides trying to educate voters to elect lawmakers who are ethical, honest and have integrity, what do you propose is the answer? I know amnesty won't work.

      Sanxuary - There are migrant workers who pick crops in this nation. They are not illegal immigrants but here on a temporary basis then they return to their home country. Simple concept.

      I have never been a fan of illegal immigration, no country in the World puts up with it, why should we? After billions are spent on homeland security and hundreds of private armies called security firms, we can not even stop a kid from crossing are border. I feel no more secure today then I did before it was formed. With so many people out of work perhaps they should explore why Americans will not play farm slave. My guess is that they treat people like such garbage that it is a tough gig to play. The goal is to reduce every American to wages in a third World Country and the labor can not be any worst then the jobs I have done lately.

      Frog, you think the kids lawyers (you and I are paying for by the way) will let them be flown back? Obama sure is doing a good job on the job front isn't he, for lawyers that is.

      Jayfort, get rid of the illegals and I guarantee you the jobs will be filled - it isn't that Americans won't do them, it's that employers are able to hire illegals for the meager wages they can get away with paying illegals. Nobody has to be deported (another ruse is that we can't deport millions of illegals) - just take away the incentives to come here, enforce the laws already on the books and they will find their way back to Mexico the way they came - allow free transport to Mexico for illegals at checkpoints along the border and they will self deport by the millions if they can't work and get free benefits here and they will spread the word to others not to come. You'd think with all the simpletons elected to office in Washington they'd have figured this simple solution out unless they all have another agenda.

      The kids aren't doing too well here.The conditions are horrific and dangerous. They would be better off back home.

      bpop - I have a solution. We load C-130s with these distressed children and fly them back to the countries they came from. We'll save billions in the long run. This crap about disguising amnesty as comprehensive immigration reform is easy for an intelligent person to see through.

      The good news is that Eric Cantor got kicked to the curb. Apparently, the people in his state didn't agree with his stance on this issue. Let's hope the trend continues. What's happening now is a travesty. The Obama administration is going to provide these children with free legal representation. Stopping them from trekking across to our doors would have been the more humane thing to do. Everything is out of control and we can thank Obama and the fools who elected him twice for that. Voted up, useful (in the right hands) interesting and awesome.

      When the last amnesty bill was signed into law, the American People were assured that it would be the last time it would be necessary to do so. Apparently, those on the Left and some in the Middle and on the Right "kicked the can down the road" again and now say amnesty must be done again.

      Who used to do a lot of the dirty jobs that "Americans just won't do"? Well, it used to be Americans! American men, women, and teenagers who wanted to earn money doing unskilled labor. What happened? Employers found they could use immigrants to do those jobs and pay them less!

      I've dug ditches, shoveled horse and cow manure, carried mortar and bricks, and any number of low end jobs. They weren't fun but I earned my money! And I used my time and efforts to learn new skills and abilities and move up the employment ladder.

      But if I had to...I could dig ditches, shovel manure, etc again... (within the limits of a MUCH older body) to help support my family. Maybe it's what many Americans need to do...get off their high horses and get back to work doing the work that Americans (not illegal immigrants) SHOULD do!
