The President embraces Newspeak

An illegal alien is, by definition, a criminal:  the person snuck into the United States in the dead of night (so to speak), and has no right to be here.

That’s not how our president sees it:

A student, who appeared via Skype, asked: “My question for the president is, why [is the government] saying that deportations have stopped — or the detention of many students like me, why is it that we are still receiving deportation letters like this one?”

Obama answered, “We have redesigned our enforcement practices under the law to make sure that we’re focusing primarily on criminals, and so our deportation of criminals are up about 70 percent. Our deportation of non-criminals are down, and that’s because we want to focus our resources on those folks who are destructive to the community.

“And for a young person like that young woman that we just spoke to who’s going to school, doing all the right things, we want them to succeed,” Obama said.

Hmm.  So the thief breaks into your house.  He doesn’t attack you physically.  You might not even know he’s there.  He simply empties your refrigerator, takes money from your safe, goes through your medicine cabinet and takes your books.  You call the police, but they tell you that, now that he’s in your house, and since he hasn’t hurt you, you should just be cool.  Indeed, they say, with luck, he’ll take all your possessions, and set himself up in his own house, with his own refrigerator, medicine cabinet, money and books.

I don’t like our president.  The more I learn about him, the less I like him.  I just keep telling myself that we (America and poor Israel) just have to hang in there for another 18 months.  Of course, considering that the American people imposed this walking disaster on us in the first place, perhaps I’m being foolishly optimistic in assuming they’ll collectively wise up by 2012.

I’m not the only one, incidentally, who is finding it unnerving to peer into the president’s psyche.  Zombie peered too, and finally figured out what’s going on (graphic reprinted with permission):

    Isn’t the president sworn to “execute the laws”? Isn’t a refusal to enforce laws he doesn’t like an attack on the separation of powers and a clear violation of his oath?

    David:  That’s so regressive, non-intellectual and proletariat of you.  Upholding laws means only upholding “fair” laws, and it’s unfair to punish people who are living marginal lives because they’re here illegally.  The problem with America today is that there are too many people who think equal protection under the law means that the law treats all people equally.  Equal protection under the law really means that we use laws to equalize all people’s status.

    “Come the revolution, we’ll all drive Rolls Royces.”

    “But I don’t want to drive a Rolls Royce.”

    “Come the Revolution, you’ll have to.”


    Thief-in-Chief is a liar, plain and simple and painful. The very example you set, Bookworm, makes him an accomplice.
    Liar-in-Chief is a professional parser.  Mr. “No boots on the ground” but more than two thousand marines on a ship no problem.



    One more thing. Google owns YouTube. Google works hand-in-hand with the administration. Draw your own conclusions – the link confirmed mine.
    YouTube has admitted to freezing the view count on a viral video of Vice President Joe Biden that highlights the hypocrisy of the Obama administration as it engages in military aggression against Libya.

    Come the revolution, the workers who assemble Rolls Royces will be paid what they truly deserve according to Marx’s labor theory of value. I for one would love to have a job where I am paid $25,000 or $30,000 for every car I work on.

    Lets be honest, given the lack of funding allocated for border enforcement, would you rather the government focus equally on illegals who haven’t broken other laws and those who have?  Or would you prefer that the limited dollars be targeted towards deporting “real” criminals first and simple illegals second?  Frankly the second option is much more appealing to me.  I’m not saying that the other illegals should be ignored, but I would MUCH rather the fed arrest the gang members than the relatively harmless field hands.
    Note: I say “real” criminals simply as shorthand

    If it is only 18 more months we have to endure this President. My concern is the unions and the media will pull off his re-election through fraud and deceit. Reading about what is still going on in Wisconsin and the Unions’ out and out threating businesses with boycotts worries me the voters will be bullied into re-electing Obama. I think it is Rush who refers to this as thugocracy. I don’t see the younger people catching on. My daughter is a teacher and thinks BO Plenty is just soooo much better than Bush. They are brainwashed and I fear that until they find themselves in an irreversible situation they won’t get it. If it only affected them I would say fine but it doesn’t. President Bush was far from perfect and certainly made some mistakes but there was never a doubt about his patriotism. It scares me to see how many anti Americans there are in the elected government. Should we the electorate work our tails off and get conservatives elected then we hear calls for re-calling those duly elected. (See Wisconsin) We stupid conservatives think we have to endure and wait for the next election. How quaint. As far as BO’s words and his vision he is doing the work of George Soros. Soros wants the United States out of the way so we can have his new world order. In one of your posts you talk about feeling it is like Déjà vu when you write. Me too. I say the same things over and over. Obama is dangerous. More to the point the people controlling Obama are dangerous. If I don’t like him I am a racist. Whoopie Goldberg says so. Why do I give a damn about what Whoopie Goldberg thinks? It would seem “The View” has decent ratings. Therefore there must be some people who think she’s cool. My wife and I enjoy “Dancing With the Stars”. Last season Bristol Palin stayed in the competition to the final show. I don’t vote but I was rooting for Bristol every week. She received death threats. Death threats for crying out loud for being on a TV show and dancing. She wasn’t saying or doing anything political. The vitriol is getting out of hand. Obama the healer has divided this country and I am just not sure the electorate will vote him out. I hope so but I am not sure. I didn’t think Bill Clinton would get a 2nd term but he did.

    I couldn’t resist:

    “As democracy is perfected, the office of president represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart’s desire at last and the White House will be occupied by a downright moron.”

    Danny, good one. Looking at Obama, I’d say we’re one Biden away from Mencken’s nightmare.

    Danny, thanks for pulling the quote out of the bag, it will be the header on my emails.
