IBD has a very good editorial up this morning about the Democrat Socialist Party’s attempts to broaden the definition of who is eligible to vote.

Faced with losing Congress, the Democrats want to make Puerto Rico a state whether the people want it or not. The Democrats would get two new senators, new congressmen and a campaign issue.

Throw in voting representation for D.C., amnesty for illegals and voting for felons, all items on the Democrats’ agenda, and in their cookbook you have a recipe for Democratic majorities as far as the eye can see. It’s a plan to retain control at all costs and counteract a Tea Party movement that threatens to throw their big-government liberalism on the ash heap of political history.

Socialists behave this way.  When they can’t win on the merits they will pull any stunt they can get away with to get their way.   The Puerto Rico bill pulls three things that are blatantly crooked.  First, splits the vote in a way as to take away true choice from the Puerto Ricans.  Teh first vote is basically do you want the status quo or do you want change?  The second vote then gives people the option of whether they want independence or statehood.   Then to make sure the left gets what they want, they allow anyone who was ever born in PR, regardless of where they live now, to vote (the better to get SEIU involved you see.)  The final trick is if they vote is still no it will require a new referendum every 8 years until they get the result they want.  You know, like little children who will ask their parents for a piece of chocolate cake 15 minutes before dinner and will keep asking in increasingly louder voices until they get it.

We need to serious house cleaning in Washington – preferably just consign the damned place to the dust heap if history and start over.  the Federal Government cannot be reformed without a 100% housecleaning of everyone there.

We warned you!

Dear Leader on earnings

“Now, what we’re doing, I want to be clear, we’re not trying to push financial reform because we begrudge success that’s fairly earned,” Obama said in Quincy, Ill. “I mean, I do think at a certain point you’ve made enough money.”

Powerline’s response is priceless:

The Founders thought that at some point the government had enough power.

When a guy whose bank has just failed campaigns on financial reform, you know that we have reached a new level of irony in this country.

Obama is afraid of little old ladies who are protesting? 

The SWAT Team was called in today at the Quincy Tea Party Rally. Obama was speaking at the convention center this afternoon.

Check out the pictures.  “Dear Leader” my be happy with himself.

From Dana Loesch:

Who gave the order to call in the riot police on protesters? Word is that Secret Service from inside the venue and the presidential team pressured local law enforcement, who were against the idea. Local cops were overruled, I’m told by various sources, including a few members of local press. Moore reported that she overheard Secret Service telling the riot squad to “push them back, out of sight.

This wasn;t the locals over reacting. It was Obama’s goon squad.   Here’s Ben Smith  at Politico on a previous Obama protest shut-down

Police chased reporters away from the White House and closed Lafayette Park today in response to a gay rights protest in which several service members in full uniform handcuffed themselves to the White House gate to protest “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.”

People who have covered the White House for years tell me that’s an extremely unusual thing to do in an area that regularly features protests.

Imagine the reaction if Bush had done this.  On the other hand, Bush was never afraid of the American people.  Hope you like living in an incarnation of 1984!

Illegal immigrants plan to leave over Ariz. law

Many day laborers like Diaz say they will leave Arizona because of the law, which also makes it a state crime to be in the U.S. illegally and directs police to question people about their immigration status if there is reason to suspect they are illegal immigrants.

Supporters of the law hope it creates jobs for thousands of Americans.

“We want to drive day labor away,” says Republican Rep. John Kavanagh, one of the law’s sponsors.

An estimated 100,000 illegal immigrants have left Arizona in the past two years as it cracked down on illegal immigration and its economy was especially hard hit by the Great Recession. A Department of Homeland Security report on illegal immigrants estimates Arizona’s illegal immigrant population peaked in 2008 at 560,000, and a year later dipped to 460,000.

Well, good.  That’s what we want. 

I don;t mind people immigrating here legally.  I just don’t want illegals siphoning off money and using social services that they do not pay for because, you know, they are illegal and off the books.
