The Electoral College Has Voted. Joe Biden is Officially President-Elect. by The Elephant's Child

The electoral college has voted in all 50 states and the District of Columbia to make fomer Vice President Joe Biden now formally the president-elect of the United States. Unfortunately 75-76% of Republicans believe the election was stolen from Donald Trump, and around 30% of Democrats also believe the election was stolen. That doesn’t seem to be getting off to a real good start.

One of Biden’s very first efforts will be to rejoin the Paris Climate Accords, with John Kerry in charge, to save us from an overheating planet. It wouldn’t take a lot of time and effort to learn that it has been much warmer in the past, with little in the way of ill-effects. But true-believers don’t investigate, they just believe.

The open borders lobby is urging Democrat Joe Biden to quickly grant amnesty for illegal aliens who are living in the United States, as there is a little-known federal program that keeps foreign nationals from being deported. They want amnesty by executive order and use the coronavirus pandemic as an excuse to grant amnesty to all 11 million to 22 million illegals currently living in the United States. I have the odd notion that there is a legal way to come to the United States, by applying, waiting one’s turn, and working towards citizenship. We welcome new citizens.

Of course there has been much fuss about the “children in cages” at the border amid attempts to make it something the evil Donald Trump did, rather than the act of the Obama administration. Democrats do not admit wrongdoing, they just blame it on someone else. If you remember AOC went down to the southern border to check on the children in cages, and had herself photographed clutching at a chain-link fence and weeping as she stared out at an empty parking-lot. Good visuals always help.

A Reminder, In Your Words Mr. President: “That’s Not How Democracy Works” by The Elephant's Child


The year is 2011, and election coming up, the president is making lots of speeches and fundraising. On May 10, President Obama spoke at Chamizal National Memorial Park in El Paso Texas. He vowed to “keep up the fight” to pass comprehensive immigration reform through Congress, because the immigration system was broken. (Not broken. The immigration laws simply are not enforced).

He assured the audience that the border fence was essentially complete, (if  “essentially complete” means that 84 miles of the mandated double fencing have been built of the 1,933 miles of our border with Mexico). That pertains to compliance with the Secure Fence Act of 2006.

Then he added:

“Sometimes when I talk to immigration advocates, they wish I could just bypass Congress and change the law myself, but that’s not how a democracy works,” Obama said. “What we really need to do is to keep up the fight to pass genuine, comprehensive reform. That is the ultimate solution to this problem. That’s what I’m committed to doing.”

Back in the halls of Congress, it is Jeff Sessions who once again spoke of constitutional government in defense of American workers in a clarifying speech yesterday on the Senate floor:

A number of things have been happening today with regard to the funding of the Department of Homeland Security. There’s been a lot of spin about that and that somehow the Republicans are blocking the funding of the Department of Homeland Security. This gives new meaning to the word “obfuscation,” I suppose, or “disingenuousness.” The truth is, the House of Representatives has fully funded the Department of Homeland Security. It’s provided the level of funding the President asked for. It’s kept all the accounts at Homeland Security as approved through the congressional process. It simply says, but, Mr. President, we considered your bill, this amnesty bill that will provide work permits, photo IDs, Social Security numbers, Medicare benefits. You can’t do that. We considered that and rejected it. So we’re not going to fund that.

Now, the President has told us and his staff that they have across the river in Crystal City, they’re leasing a new building and this building is going to hire a thousand workers, paid for by the taxpayers of the United States, part of Homeland Security. Are those thousand workers going to be utilized to enforce the laws of the United States? Are they going to process applications for citizenship or visas? No. Those 1,000 people, costing several hundred million dollars, in truth, those people are going to be processing and providing these benefits to people unlawfully in America… (Read on below)

President Obama Makes the Case Against President Obama’s Executive Amnesty by The Elephant's Child

Mr. Obama clearly spells out just what he can and cannot do as head of the Executive Branch of Government. Perhaps we need to remind him?
