We are coming up on a busy and potentially momentous week. Congress is returning to Washington, which is always a dangerous proposition. As the famous quote goes, “No man’s life, liberty or property is safe when Congress is in session.” While Congress is in session, it at best does nothing helpful and at worst is destructive to America, this week we will see one of the worst proposals America has ever been faced with. For several reasons, this issue will be at the forefront this week. What is the issue and why will it be so visible this week? The issue is amnesty. There are several reasons why it will be in the forefront this week. First, you will see Barack Obama pushing the issue. He will be talking about amnesty, gun control gay rights and anything else he can think of to avoid talking about the most important issue of all. The most important issue of all is the economy. Friday’s jobs report was a disaster. While the cooked numbers for unemployment are falling, the numbers behind Obama’s faux unemployment rate are shocking. 90 million Americans have left the workforce. Out of a nation of about 310 million, 90 million adults are not in the work force. Our work force is now the same size it was in 1979. If those who have given up looking for work were included in the unemployment calculations, the rate would be near 12%. So Obama will talk about amnesty this week. He will have a lot of help from the so-called “Gang of 8” as well as Washington Republican insiders who are pushing amnesty. Amnesty is being pushed this week so its supporters can try to ram it through Congress without any examination. This will be another case of a 1000 page bill that Congressmen and Senators will vote on without knowing what is in the bill. But here is what the amnesty advocates won’t tell you. They will trot out the children of the illegals many of whom were brought to this country as small children and many who only know America. However most of the illegals are adults. Most of them are not well-educated adults. Compulsory education in Mexico only runs through the 6th grade. Can you imagine trying to navigate our complex society with only a 6th grade education? Then throw in the fact it is not even an American education. In 1986, we had amnesty. The figure that is thrown out for this amnesty is 11 million. What we learned from 1986 is that they number of people who will apply for amnesty is far larger than what Congress expects. Even now with just the discussion of amnesty border crossings have increased significantly. We also learned from 1986, border security will never happen. But the real danger to America is the cost amnesty will have. Our nation teeters on the edge of bankruptcy thanks to liberal spending policies and amnesty will be like throwing gasoline on a fire. In economic terms, the value illegals have to the economy is that they can be paid a lower wage than is legal. Because of their status, illegals can’t really complain about this and employers can take advantage of them. Once they become legal, they will be able to demand minimum wage, benefits and the other perks of employment. In economic terms, they are no longer worth the cost. What does that mean? That means large numbers of them will end up on welfare. Even now, though it is illegal, significant numbers of illegal aliens receive welfare. This number will explode after amnesty. We will see the number of people in this nation who are not in the workforce expand from 90 million to well over 100 million or perhaps even higher. 10 to 20 million recipients of amnesty will flood the rolls of Obamacare, driving the cost of that program to the point of where it bankrupts the nation. The week that is coming is going to focus not on the economy but on amnesty. We must tell our Senators and Congressmen in no uncertain terms amnesty must be voted down. And while we are at it we must remind them, “It’s the economy, stupid!”

ALERT ALERT

Obama Lies Again: – Ignores That The Year After Signing The Stimulus More Than (4) Million Jobs Were Lost

Former President Obama, the only President in US history who had his FBI and other Intel agencies spy on the opposition party candidate, claims that he created the great economy that Americans are enjoying today. The only thing Obama created was debt and massive job losses with his horrible economic recovery.

Yesterday the former President tweeted an effort to take credit for President Trump’s successful economy:

Joe Hoft@joehoft

Of course another @BarackObama lie. He can’t open his mouth without lying. 11 years ago the US lost (4.3) million jobs over the next 12 months. Horrible liar. https://twitter.com/barackobama/status/1229432034650722304 

Barack Obama  @BarackObama

Eleven years ago today, near the bottom of the worst recession in generations, I signed the Recovery Act, paving the way for more than a decade of economic growth and the longest streak of job creation in American history.

President Obama’s policies were a disgrace and a failure. He doubled the national debt in spite of zero interest rates from the Fed. His recovery was the worst in US history.

Also, Obama’s assertion is just plain false. The ‘Stimulus’ was passed in February 2009 right after Obama took over the Presidency. He promised to not pass any bills for at least a week to allow for the bills to be read by the people but lied as soon as he was sworn in. The Stimulus was hundreds and hundreds of pages of government handouts to Democrat districts and it was close to $1 million. This was not what America needed and it led to the Tea Party.

Far-left Wikipedia has this to say about the Stimulus:

Note that in his infinite wisdom, NYT economist Paul Krugman is credited with arguing that “the stimulus was far smaller than the economic crisis warranted”. (He also said the markets would crash and burn if President Trump was elected President.)

The data shows that the 12 months after Obama’s stimulus, the US lost 4.3 million jobs:

In Obama’s first three years he netted a loss of 1.5 million jobs compared to President Trump who has added more than 6.7 million jobs.

When it comes to the economy, the billionaire schools the community organizer every time.
