What is Marco Rubio thinking?

The letter To Congress from the National Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Council of the American Federation of Government Employees Affiliated with AFL-CIO warns of the discretionary power the bill gives to “political appointees” and takes away from law enforcers:

“Congress can and must take decisive steps to limit the discretion of political appointees and empower ICE and CBP to perform their respective missions and enforce the laws enacted by Congress. Rather than limiting the power of those political appointees within DHS, S. 744 provides them with nearly unlimited discretion, which will serve only to further cripple the law enforcement missions of these agencies.”

They warn that the Senate immigration bill gives DHS Sec. Janet Napolitano “virtually unlimited discretion to waiver” prohibitions on obtaining legal status, such as criminal activity or previous deportation:

“This same section (Section 2101 of S. 744) gives the Secretary of Homeland Security virtually unlimited discretion to waive any manner of crimes that would otherwise make an individual ineligible for legal status––for such expansive reasons as family unity, humanitarian purposes, or what the Secretary believes is in the public interest.”

The letter concludes that ICE officers would continue to be “powerless” to protect the public and do their jobs if the bill becomes law…

Seriously, what is Marco Rubio thinking?

How, in good conscious could a vote on this Immigration Bill be forthcoming? Associated with this Bill is the Debt Ceiling fight. Then the Budgeting process to pay for this extravaganza for the next 10 years? This Bill lays total control over ALL Immigration decisions in the lap of one individual - DHS's Secretary's (no oversight). This organization is (at last count) 250,000 employees strong (and growing). With this new Czar-of-Czars and a budget of trillions...katy-bar-the-door!!!OH! There's NO (not one single red cent)money set aside for Border Security, too! There, now you know!!!
The Debt Ceiling!!! Well, it's fast appraoching $17 trillion dollars.New ceiling? $20 trillion. Wanna bet?
We The Elite People of culture of corruption in ALL of Washington DC will be pushing for $20 trillion dollars. This, without any budget reforms, cuts, reduction ("don't cut my entitlements!") and ever expanding rolls of government assistance recipients and applicants. OH! And how's about that Immigration Reform Bill now about to become Law in September 2013? Some estimated 55 million additional (nobody really knows the "true" figure) adding -according to COB- an additional $6.5 trillion of debt onto the proposed $20 trillion.
When does Bernanke stop the printing presses, saying "enough's, enough, already?" HUH? Spending ones way to prosperity is impossible (especially when its with OPM-Other People's Money!) Pure Lunacy! Pray. Amen.

The vital fact is that Rubio is the main pusher, faceman and spokesmouth for Super Amnesty Plus. He is more dangerous to the Republic than al Qaeda even though Hannity and Limbaugh and Levin take turns humping his leg.

Amigos – comrades – muchachos - friends, we are gathered here as an edifice of the great glory that is now vanishing and the intuitive feeling, based on the assumption as Mencken once said, “He who underestimates the American public will never go broke.” This is merely a small indication to behold and to perceive that which has gone way into the behind and to that which might project .. I mean go forward ... out of the mouth ... i mean .. the future…we’ve got to rip up the constitution so we can rip down those outdated borders! This is the main deterrent upon which we have gathered our strength and all the others who say, “What the hell did that get?” – We don’t yet know.

Clearly today we must all be aware that political expediency and latino ethnicity takes precedence over rule of law and constitutional procedure. However you say – WTF ! – what does this mean… in relation to the tabulation whereby we must once again realize that the great reconquesta story is now being rehearsed before our very eyes, in the rise of Marco Rubio… indicating that only a two-faced ... I mean a bi-faced ... I mean a bi-polar ... I mean a bi-lingual hombre can receive…the award for reconquesta, unlike Kenyan Hussein Obama whose reconquesta plans don’t drink water.

And as Miller once said in one of his great novels- what did he … that language is only necessary when bilingual communication is endangered. And you sit there bewildered, and Pinter who went further said “It is not the lack of communication, but fear of communication.” That’s what the damn thing is that we fear – communication – especially all the Spanish communication that's even on a box of Wheaties now. Damn it! But we have no paranoia, and through all this Senator McCain has attained, and has created for himself serenity, and it is only his insanity that has kept him alive in his senility.

Senors y Senoritas, Ladies and Gentlemen. The time will come when a first world America will outlive its usefulness. Marx, either Groucho or Karl, I can't remember which, maybe it was both or maybe it was Harpo, once said that America is the opiate of the people. I say that when America outlives its usefulness and becomes a majority latino nation , then opium...will be the opiate...Ahh that's not a bad idea... we are going to need that badly especially when the booze runs out ...

And the completely unbiased and bi-partisan panel, has determined to give the grand prize to Marco Rubio for his EARNESTY’S RAINBOW. Now EARNESTY’S RAINBOW is a token of this man’s genius…he told me so himself and repeatedly …that he could change perceptions by calling his plan for knocking down those pesky borders EARNESTY …in other words, he could have been more specific, but rather than allude to an articulation of the mundane, he has come to the conclusion that brevity is the importance of our nation’s shallow first world existence. God damn!

Marco Rubio’s EARNESTY’S RAINBOW – is a small contribution to a certain degree, since there are over seven billion people in the world today. 450 of them … million live in the United States and Mexico which is a very, very small amount compared to those who will be miserable and dying elsewhere…Well, I say that you will be on the road to new horizons, for we who live in a society where citizenship is a commodity and a politician can become a TV personality, it’s not easy to conform if you have any morality…I, I, I said that myself many years ago…

But I do want to thank la Raza…I mean the RNC … I mean the DNC and it’s subsidiary the RNC, the organization for the $1,000 in affirmative action latino scholarships they’ve given out…tonight they took in over $4,000,000, but they do have expenses for their consultants you know, and I think that I have another appointment. I would like to stay here, but for the sake of brevity I, I must leave. I do want to thank you, and I want to thank Marco Rubio – acting el Presidenta of la Raza Mexiamerica and also Mr. Obama – acting Pharaoh and Drone Commander of the World – and also I want to thank Professor Irwin Corey and thank you. ...

"Seriously, what is Marco Rubio thinking?"

It should be obvious by now what the main pusher, faceman and spokesmouth for Super Amnesty Plus has been thinking. He has made that so obvious in so many ways and at so many times that how all united can somehow fail to enlighten any mentally competent person is simply astounding. So I would ask "Seriously, what is anyone who supports America and has not condemed him in the strongest terms thinking?"

Aprili 2012, Sen Rubio, Rep. Grijalva and Gutierrez all three crafted this abomination. Rubio, in "smoky-back-room" dealings, asked Senators what else could added to this very "slim" piece of legislation. Well, crimmeny-sakes they all said, here's my thangy, and his thangymagig, too. All said an done more than billions, upon billions in pure PORKULUS! Not only is there gazillion extra dollars for the Immigration portion, but there's a whole other gazillion more in PORKULUS!! And Nancy Pelosi hasn't even put her "imprimatur" to the bill (read: Pork)! Pray. Amen. God Bless America, she's being governed by We The Elite People of culture of corruption in ALL of Washington DC.

Well, this is one way for Obama to get his civilian national security force that's just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded as the military. Give the DHS "virtually unlimited power".
