Here's the Nonsense: The president is only trying to help people by bringing families back together. That's a good thing.
Here's the Horse Sense: This has nothing to do with reuniting families and everything to do with the continuing efforts of this administration to overload our system. And it's just an example of more to come.
While the public is busy worrying about ebola, ISIS, open borders, the IRS scandal, the Benghazi scandal, the Fast and Furious scandal, and on and on, our illustrious president is adding more for us to be concerned about. In fact, it's probably a trial run for what he plans to do to radically increase the number of immigrants through our porous southern border.
The DHS has announced that in 2015 it's implementing a program to allow thousands of Haitians into the country without visas. (Note: By waiting until 2015 it puts the 2014 midterm elections behind us so this cannot impact those elections.) They are calling it Haitian family reunification, and I suspect that using the guise of bringing families back together is a trial run at what they will do with all the people coming across the southern border in the future.
The plan is to offer the Haitians the opportunity to come to America without visas so they can "reunite" with their family members. On the outside it looks like a noble effort to support families, but in reality it's one more way the president can flood our system to overload it.
The Washington Times has reported on this issue stating that Senator Chuck Grassley, whose Senate Judiciary Committee has jurisdiction over immigration policy, has said the administration's action is "an irresponsible overreach of the executive branch's authority." He went on to ask, "Which countries are next on President Obama's list?" The article goes on to say that the State Department's National Visa Center will begin notifying families who may be eligible to take part in the program. So, not only will they open the doors, they'll be recruiting foreigners to take part in it.
There are about 100,000 Haitians currently waiting for visas, but this will fast track the entry of at least that many people into the country. The administration wants us to think it's the right thing to do because it will help reunite families and rebuild Haiti that suffered huge losses from hurricane damage.
I'm not sure how this rebuilds Haiti, but it does bring more people here using the excuse of reuniting families. Of course it will also add more burden to our healthcare system and welfare system as our government encourages the new immigrants to take advantage of those benefits. This will serve as another step in the Cloward and Piven strategy to overload our system and ultimately collapse it. (If you aren't familiar with the Cloward and Piven strategy and Obama's use of manufactured crisis, I highly recommend reading this American Thinker article that I referred to in my last post as well.)
Think about it. Using the idea that it is the moral thing to do to bring families back together, Obama will get support from every bleeding heart in the media and the public. And by bringing in immigrants this way he will set the stage to use the same strategy again. Once he's done it with the Haitians, it will only be a matter of time before he will probably offer a similar deal to the illegal immigrants we have coming in from Central America across our southern border.
The president hasn't given up on amnesty for illegals, as can be seen in a new report by Breitbart news. He continues to work around and behind the law to get what he wants.
Americans are not involved in their government. They do not hold it accountable, which was a specific responsibility that our founders designed to keep the government under the control of the citizens. Besides their narcissism that keeps most Americans from paying attention to what's going on in Washington, having so many crises constantly going on makes it virtually impossible for those who do want to be informed to understand all that is happening.
We're being inundated with crisis after catastrophe after dilemma after emergency after disaster after...well, hopefully you should get the point. The war against America is hitting us on every front. That alone should be enough for people to get involved, but instead I fear that it's causing people to put their heads in the sand and ignore what's happening. America is going from being known as a land of the fierce and courageous eagle to the land of the ostrich with its head in the sand.
The Horse Sense Blog compares the nonsense in today's news with good ol' fashioned horse sense
“…I shall speak forth my sentiments freely and without reserve.… It is only in this way that we can hope to arrive at truth, and fulfill the great responsibility which we hold to God and our country. Should I keep back my opinions at such a time, through fear of giving offense, I should consider myself as guilty of treason towards my country, and of an act of disloyalty toward the Majesty of Heaven, which I revere above all earthly kings.” - Patrick Henry, March 23, 1775
