"Obama the tyrant king unleashes dictatorial order that will now invoke "open rebellion" - Senate aide
Friday, November 21, 2014
by Mike Adams
(NaturalNews) With the stroke of a pen, President Obama has now set America on the path toward open rebellion and revolt. By declaring that he alone has the right to dictate immigration policy without the legislative approval of Congress, he has committed yet another lawless act in a long series of illegal schemes that cement his position in history as nothing more than a sociopathic liar and destroyer of nations.
The liberal media won't report this, but Obama has just crossed the line in the minds of tens of millions of Americans and their representatives in Congress. This President has gone from merely being "deceptive" to being thought of as an outright criminal who must be restrained to save America from tyranny. There will be public calls for his arrest and prosecution. There will be revolts, both political and on the streets. You will see attempts to march on Washington and "throw the bum out" of the White House. The era of all-out revolt and rebellion is now upon us.
Don't just take my word for it, though. Read the words of a Senate aide:
A Senate GOP aide told Breitbart News conservatives will spread chaos across Washington. "If Obama announces executive amnesty and the House passes an omnibus with no language blocking it, there will be no Senate vote, because conservatives will burn down the Capitol," the aide said. When asked to clarify if he was serious they'd burn the building to the ground -- or if he was speaking metaphorically -- the aide said "open rebellion." 
Burn down the Capitol? Open rebellion? These are not the words of people who are going to sit down and compromise with an out-of-control tyrant dictator who recognizes no law and no limits to his power. These are the words of lawmakers who are moving toward a political rebellion to arrest and depose President Obama, then try him as a criminal while seeking to restore the balance of government that places specific limits on the power of the executive branch.
Obama supporters don't care about the balance of power. They want a tyrant king in power as long as it's their king. They are, in essence, Obama cultists who worship the person and are willing to cast aside all laws and legal boundaries to grant "their man" total dictatorial control over the future of this nation. But that's not how a Republic works. The President is not a dictator, and he or she cannot simply invent whatever wishful edicts he wants to enact at the stroke of a pen. That's not freedom; that's outright tyranny. And it must be stopped or the nation will collapse into despotism and runaway government corruption. (It may already be too late to stop that accelerating collapse, however...)
"President Obama is going rogue," writes Patrick Buchanan. "Our rogue president has crossed an historic line, and so has the republic. Future presidents will cite the 'Obama precedent' when they declare they will henceforth not enforce this or that law, because of a prior commitment to some noisy constituency. We have just taken a monumental step away from republicanism toward Caesarism. For this is rule by diktat, the rejection of which sparked the American Revolution." 
Again, another reference to revolution and rebellion. What Buchanan recognizes is that Obama hasn't merely done something politically disturbing; he has done something that shreds the very fabric of political balance in America. Obama has just declared Congress to be null and void. And in nullifying Congress, he has simultaneously given the finger to every man and woman in the nation, telling them that their own voices and representatives in Congress are utterly irrelevant.
Obama is telling America he can do anything he wants because Congress didn't do it when he first demanded it. Here is how Obama spins it, in his own words:
The actions I'm taking are not only lawful, they're the kinds of actions taken by every single Republican President and every single Democratic President for the past half century. And to those Members of Congress who question my authority to make our immigration system work better, or question the wisdom of me acting where Congress has failed, I have one answer: Pass a bill.
But as Ben Shapiro of TruthRevolt.com explains, "This is the opposite of 'lawful.' This is dictatorship in a nutshell: do what I want, or I will do it for you." 
Shapiro goes on to say:
[Obama's] speech represented a closely-woven and incredible tapestry of falsehood, exposited with a straight face by the greatest liar in modern American history... To those versed in immigration and constitutional law, watching Obama lay out his program felt like watching a madman describe, with preternaturally perfect sincerity, how the moon was constructed of cheese: you know the argument is untrue, but it's incredible to watch its dogged exposition."
I have been warning readers about the rise of tyranny in America for more than a decade. Now the era of in-your-face lawlessness and tyranny is here, and it is celebrated by delusional left-wing denialists who have no grasp whatsoever of history and how nations rise and fall. Obama has put America on the path toward "open rebellion," revolt and civil war. Such scenarios usually do not reach a conclusion without bloodshed, sadly.
Recognize right now that we may all be living in the last days of the American empire. We might narrowly avert it if those of us who still believe in the Constitution, justice and liberty manage to demand lawful restoration of this nation's Constitutional foundations and take America back from the corruption and tyranny that the Obama administration has cast down upon us all. It is time to rise up and call for impeachment. It is time to take to the streets in non-violent protests, and then march on Washington by the millions, to send a message that lawless tyranny will not be tolerated in the "Land of the Free."
And yet, even as the severity of the situation now demands mass action in the name of saving America from domestic political traitors, I cannot help but observe that most Americans are too obese, too fluoridated, too medicated and too apathetic to do anything other than reach for the TV remote with one hand and another bag of MSG-laced Doritos with the other. America may have already become too diseased, too confused and too mentally suppressed to rise up against anything... including a self-declared psychopathic dictator who will truly go down in history as one of the most malicious and destructive liars ever recorded.
"Obama immigration plan would protect millions" by Michael D. Shear, Julia Preston and Ashley Parker | New York Times November 14, 2014
WASHINGTON — President Obama will ignore angry protests from Republicans and announce as soon as next week a broad overhaul of the nation’s immigration enforcement system that will protect up to 5 million illegal immigrants from the threat of deportation and provide many of them with work permits, according to administration officials who have direct knowledge of the plan.
This in a chronically-underemployed population. I know what the lies from Washington are regarding the job numbers, and this action shows you Obummer is about serving wealth. Cheap foreign labor has been brought in and you citizens are just going to have to join the military, I guess.
Furthermore, he could have waited until the Republicans sent him a work visa bill because they have one sitting around somewhere. Was part of their piecemeal approach the Democrats never allowed in the Senate.
This now looks more about a bitter narcissist who is in denial about his rejection at the polls.
Asserting his authority as president to enforce the nation’s laws with discretion, Obama intends to order changes that will significantly refocus the activities of the government’s 12,000 immigration agents. One key piece of the order, officials said, will allow many parents of children who are US citizens or legal residents to obtain legal work documents and no longer worry about being discovered, separated from their families, and sent away.
That part of Obama’s plan alone could affect as many as 3.3 million people who have been living in the United States illegally for at least five years, according to an analysis by the Migration Policy Institute, an immigration research organization in Washington. But the White House is also considering a stricter policy that would limit the benefits to people who have lived in the country for at least 10 years, or about 2.5 million people.
Extending protections to more illegal immigrants who came to the United States as children, and to their parents, could affect an additional 1 million or more if they are included in the final plan that the president announces. White House officials are also still debating whether to include protections for farm workers who have entered the country illegally but have been employed for years in the agriculture industry, a move that could affect hundreds of thousands.
Obama’s actions would also expand opportunities for legal immigrants who have high-tech skills, shift extra security resources to the nation’s southern border, revamp a controversial immigration enforcement program called Secure Communities, and provide clearer guidance to the agencies that enforce immigration laws about who should be a low priority for deportation, especially those with strong family ties and no serious criminal history.
All sounds good, huh?
A new memorandum, which will direct the actions of enforcement and border agents and immigration judges, will make clear that deportations should still proceed for convicted criminals, foreigners who pose national security risks, and recent border crossers, officials said.
White House officials declined to comment publicly before a formal announcement by Obama, who will return from an eight-day trip to Asia on Sunday.

I wish you guys had kept him.
Administration officials said details about the package of executive actions were still being finished and could change. An announcement could be pushed off until next month but will not be delayed to next year, officials said.
He didn't even wait a week.
Announcing the actions quickly could hand critics like Senator Ted Cruz of Texas a specific target to attack, but it would also give immigration advocates something to defend. Waiting until later in December could allow the budget to be approved before setting off a fight over immigration.
Yeah, I'm sure they are going to be happy carrying your dictatorial water. The issue helped lose them the election, as they were stupid enough to think it would fly as a campaign issue. Amnesty never does, sorry.
“Before the end of the year, we’re going to take whatever lawful actions that I can take that I believe will improve the functioning of our immigration system,” Obama said during a news conference a day after last week’s midterm elections. “What I’m not going to do is just wait.”
I wish you would, and more than that, I wish you would enforce the law!
Related: Obama's Arbitrary Enforcement Amnesty For Illegals
Oh, that is so interesting in light of certain actions I've seen through the smokescreen. It's all what you decide to enforce, which is nothing more than dictatorship and an arbitrary tyranny.
Of course, the banks that launder all the drug cash are "too big to jail."
The decision to move forward sets in motion a political confrontation between Obama and his Republican adversaries that could affect budget negotiations and the debate over Loretta E. Lynch, the president’s nominee to be attorney general, during the lame-duck session of Congress that began this week.
I thought he was waiting on Lynch?
Sees he won't be getting anyone through after this move, that's why now, huh?
Speaker John Boehner said Thursday that if Obama went forward on his own, House Republicans would “fight the president tooth and nail.” Boehner is considering suing Obama over immigration, and on Thursday he refused to rule out a government shutdown, despite saying that was not his goal.
“We are looking at all options, and they’re on the table,” Boehner said.
I'm for shutdown, I'm for impeachment, I'm for arrest, I'm for imprisonment, I'm for treason trials, I'm for execution, so put up or shut up. I've had it with this man.
Yeah, who cares what he said yesterday or yesteryear?
"Obama reverses stance on immigration orders" by Michael D. Shear, New York Times November 18, 2014
WASHINGTON — President Obama is poised to ignore stark warnings that executive action on immigration would amount to “violating our laws” and would be “very difficult to defend legally.”
Those warnings came not from Republican lawmakers but from Obama himself.
Meaning there is a WAY LARGER AGENDA that SUPERSEDES HIM!
Call it the new World Order, call it a North American Union, call it whatever you want, there it is.
For years, the president has repeatedly waved aside the demands of Latino activists and Democratic allies who requested he take action on his own, and he insisted publicly that a decision to shield millions of immigrants from deportation without an act of Congress would amount to nothing less than the dictates of a king, not a president.
In a Telemundo interview in September 2013, Obama said he was proud of having protected the “dreamers” — people who came to the United States illegally as young children — from deportation. But he said at the time he could not apply that same action to other groups of people.
“If we start broadening that, then essentially, I’ll be ignoring the law in a way that I think would be very difficult to defend legally,” Obama told Jose Diaz-Balart in the interview. “So that’s not an option.”
Apparently, now it is or he doesn't give a damn. Either way, unhappy!!!
But Obama has effectively reversed his position and now said he believes that such actions can be “legally unassailable,” as a senior White House official put it last week.
This man needs to undergo a psychological analysis and then be committed, being the war criminal he is.
Obama is expected to announce plans soon to expand the program for the children of illegal immigrants to shield up to 5 million people from deportation and provide work permits for many of them.
This is a way of buying votes. Bring 'em in, give 'em amnesty, and whose your Daddy?
The president insisted over the weekend that he had not changed his position.
He really does need to see a doctor. This disconnect is not only astonishing, it's FRIGHTENING!
During a news conference in Australia, the president said that his earlier answers about the limits of his executive authority were prompted by people who asked him whether he could enact, by fiat, a bipartisan immigration bill that had passed the Senate, which would have provided a path to legalization for more of the 11 million unauthorized people in the United States.
“Getting a comprehensive deal of the sort that is in the Senate legislation, for example, does extend beyond my legal authorities,” Obama said Sunday. “There are certain things I cannot do.”
Yet most of the questions posed to the president over the past several years were about the very action he is expected to announce within a matter of days: whether he could do something to reduce deportations and keep families together if Congress would not act.
The president was pressed on that issue during a Google Hangout in February 2013. An activist asked whether he could do more to keep families from being “broken apart” while Congress remained gridlocked on immigration legislation.
“This is something that I have struggled with throughout my presidency,” Obama said. “The problem is, is that I’m the president of the United States, I’m not the emperor of the United States. My job is to execute laws that are passed.”
Yeah, when are you going to start doing that instead of shredding them all and spying on everyone? Is that why he's not worried about legal action or anything else? Got all the goods on all the political enemies?
Officials have said the president could announce a series of executive actions as early as this week.
The move comes after a concerted lobbying campaign by immigration advocates demanding presidential action in the face of 400,000 deportations every year. And it reflects the president’s mounting frustration that Republicans have blocked all efforts to pass immigration legislation.
That, the attempted fart mist $crewing, and a few other issues are why this blog leans Republican these days. Democrats betrayed me, betrayed us all.
At the news conference in Australia over the weekend, Obama implored Congress to pass a bill that would secure the border, revamp the legal immigration system, and legalize many of the 11 million unauthorized immigrants living in the United States.
“Give me a bill that addresses those issues,” Obama said at the conclusion of the Group of 20 summit in Brisbane, Australia. “I’ll be the first one to sign it and, metaphorically, I’ll crumple up whatever executive actions that we take and we’ll toss them in the wastebasket.”
That is where I would like to toss this abominable failure of a president and presidency.
White House officials said they did not believe that Republicans, who will control both chambers in Congress next year, have any intention of passing a bill that the president could sign.
Not now. Hell no. I hope they shove any spending he wants up his ass.
They note that Obama delayed any executive action throughout 2013 and 2014, hoping that Speaker John A. Boehner would allow a vote in the House on a bipartisan bill that passed the Senate.
When that did not happen by the summer, officials said, Obama decided he should act on his own.
Yeah, well, you can forget the salute unless you're expecting a finger.
"Obama set to act on immigration, angering GOP; Obama’s executive order cheered by reform advocates, but unilateral action infuriates Republican critics" by Jessica Meyers, Globe Staff November 20, 2014
I think it's angering Americans, who objected by over 55% in most polls to the harboring of sickly illegal immigrant children who have now carried a little-covered killer into the schools.
WASHINGTON — President Obama plans to announce his much-anticipated executive action on immigration Thursday, a move that is expected to spare up to 5 million undocumented immigrants from deportation and provide many with work permits.
That's the most angering thing after the middle class has been destroyed and there are no more jobs.
At least the 1% Obama serves got obscenely wealthy in the deal.
The announcement — which threatens to fuel partisan rancor ahead of the 2016 elections — also may remove deportation fears for parents whose children are US citizens or legal permanent residents, increase options for foreign workers on high-skilled visas, and clarify who should remain in the country.
Maybe that is what it is meant to do, divert us all and have us all argue amongst ourselves while the wars roll on, the bank heists continue, the Wall Street rape of the planet progresses, and all the other components of the agenda are nudged into place without you looking!
“Everybody agrees that our immigration system is broken,” the president said in a Facebook video posted Wednesday afternoon. “Unfortunately, Washington has allowed the problem to fester for too long. So what I’m going to be laying out is the things I can do with my lawful authority as president to make the system work better even as I continue to work with Congress and encourage them to get a bipartisan, comprehensive bill that can solve the entire problem.”
That's how he announced this?
Obama’s action, while cheered by immigration reform advocates, could impact Democrats’ ability to work with a new Republican-led Congress and has left Republicans in disagreement over how to proceed.
Tomorrow they will be telling you "we" are united.
The president has faced persistent criticism from Republicans, and his decision now to act unilaterally — without congressional backing — becomes in issue in its own right.
Republicans keyed in on a particular remark last year, when Obama said he lacked power to take unilateral action because he is not “emperor” of the United States.
“If ‘Emperor Obama’ ignores the American people and announces an amnesty plan that he himself has said over and over again exceeds his constitutional authority, he will cement his legacy of lawlessness and ruin the chances for congressional action on this issue – and many others,” Michael Steel, a spokesman for House Speaker John Boehner, said in a statement.
Impeach. I don't care about the uselessness of it or the political bric-a-crap that will be shat by the media; it's a QUESTION of LAW NOW!
White House press secretary Josh Earnest said Wednesday that Obama had the legal authority to act and insisted every president since Dwight D. Eisenhower used executive discretion.
Earnest did not specify how the president could go against his own statement, and Obama urged Americans to tune in to his Thursday speech to learn details....
Didn't. I had tuned out Bush at this point in his term as tyrant, too, as I found the sound and sight of the man totally detestable and an assault on my senses.
Obama has warned Republicans that failure to pass an immigration bill would force him to use executive power.
That's horse shit. He's the ADMINISTRATION BRANCH of this government, meaning he is supposed to ENFORCE the LAWS whatever they be.
He delayed any action until after the elections at the behest of Democrats who feared it could backfire on certain candidates.
It already had blown up in their face and they are so clueless they couldn't see it even as their faces were covered in soot and gunpowder.
But his party still lost control of the Senate — partly due to Obama’s low approval ratings....
Meanwhile, “what is not a solution is a shutdown of the government,” and some analysts and lawmakers believe Republicans can salvage the situation through tailored immigration bills."
I'd say salvaging things is way too late:
"Defying GOP, Obama acts on immigration" by Jessica Meyers, Globe Staff November 20, 2014
WASHINGTON — President Obama, acting on one of the most divisive issues of his presidency, sidestepped Congress on Thursday and unveiled a sweeping plan to protect millions of undocumented immigrants from deportation.
The president, in a prime-time address to the nation, said he will use his executive authority to halt deportation and provide work permits for nearly 5 million undocumented immigrants who meet certain requirements.
This goes beyond the "I'll ignore the law" signing statements.
“What I’m describing is accountability – a common-sense, middle ground approach,” Obama said. “If you meet the criteria, you can come out of the shadows and get right with the law. If you’re a criminal, you’ll be deported. If you plan to enter the US illegally, your chances of getting caught and sent back just went up.”
No they didn't! The detention centers are being closed down and the criminals are being released from the jails.
And if they have to get right with the law they must have broken the law.
Republicans excoriated the president’s unilateral move.
“Make no mistake,” Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell said Thursday on the Senate floor, “when the newly elected representatives of the people take their seats, they will act.”
No money for any of this. Shut it down if you have to.
The administration will not start accepting applications until spring, and other measures could take up to 18 months to implement, senior administration officials said. The vow by Republicans to fight the order could mean another lengthy period of uncertainty over the future of the nation’s fractured immigration system.
Republicans, who will take control of Congress come January, have united in their anger over Obama’s action but not the means to address it.
Representative Mo Brooks, of Alabama hinted this week at impeachment.
I've done more than that; I'm calling for it. Now!
Arrest the president!
Senator Ted Cruz of Texas demanded Congress not confirm nominees until the order is crushed. More than 50 Republicans signed onto a recent letter that would prohibit funding for the president’s actions.
But Republican leaders have tried to temper suggestions that the party shut down the government as a means of stopping Obama’s immigration move. A shutdown could occur if Congress does not pass a spending bill by Dec. 11.
It will be the height of holiday season and no one will be visiting national tourist areas. Nothing to lose, really.
He wants to play hardball, you play hardball.
The House Appropriations Committee released a statement just hours before Obama’s speech that said it did not have the power to “defund” the agency in charge of implementing the president’s action because it is funded by user fees.
They just backed down.
Then take away money somewhere else. Take it from the war budgets!
Obama on Thursday defended his executive order as something done by presidents in both parties for half a century.
Not only is that a lame and weak justification for lawlessness, there is no such power enshrined in the Constitution.
“Those members of Congress who question my authority to make our immigration system work better, or question the wisdom of me acting where Congress has failed, I have one answer: Pass a bill,” he said.
You know, like something a Mafia boss would say.
The order prevents deportation and grants legal work status to about 4 million undocumented immigrants whose children are US citizens or legal permanent residents, who have no criminal background, and who have lived in the country for at least five years. Other aspects of the order provide another 1 million unauthorized residents similar protections, all for three years.
Obama will expand a program for immigrants known as “dreamers,” who arrived in the United States as children but gained protection from deportation through a 2012 presidential directive. No age limit will exist any longer for people to qualify.
Parents of “dreamers,” however, will not receive the deportation protections, because the president does not have the legal authority.
None of those granted new protections will qualify for the government’s health care subsidies. They will pay taxes, but the order does not make them citizens.
So we are told.
The president also outlined plans to gut a controversial enforcement program called Secure Communities and replace it with one focused on removing those convicted of criminal offenses.
The administration stressed that the plan has tried to pacify critics by emphasizing that it will include a crackdown on illegal immigrants who are felons. Obama said the United States has more agencies and technology deployed on the southern border than at any other time in history.
I'm sorry, folks, but I've had it with this one-sided, agenda-pushing slop shoveled forth by the Bo$ton Globe.
The president also laid out a program to help entrepreneurs get visas, one of several modest changes intended to retain talented foreign workers.
He is expected to sign the order during a visit to a Las Vegas high school on Friday, the same place he outlined his principles for immigration reform two years ago.
Obama stressed that he took action because Republicans failed to pass an immigration bill. While the Democrat-controlled Senate passed a bipartisan overhaul bill last year, the Republican-led House refused to take it up.
“I hope this action prompts House Republicans to finally propose a plan, rather than wasting valuable time searching for ways to punish the president and his leadership,” Representative Michael Capuano, a Somerville Democrat, said in a statement.
An Obama apologist, and a more detestable piece of excrement you will not find. There a bunch around here, too, and the first thing out of their mouths after six years of this abominable failure and worse war criminal is "Well, Bush...."
The White House has sought to dispel fears the action could prompt even more partisan warfare and congressional gridlock.
I think he wants it.
White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest, in response to a reporter’s question this week about whether Democrats will feel a political fallout said, “The short answer to your question is no.”
Already have. This issue is one reason among many that they were repudiated at the polls.
Immigration advocates, even as they attended watch parties and tweeted the president’s speech with delight, saw the action as only a first step to assisting the country’s 11 million undocumented immigrants.
“It’s going to further distinguish the two parties in the eyes of immigrant voters,” said Lynn Tramonte, the deputy director of America’s Voice, an immigration advocacy group in Washington. “This policy could present a turning point in the immigration policy debate.”
As if immigrant voters are all some monolithic block.
I guess the legal immigrants who had to wait in line years don't mind people being placed in from of them on the fast track, huh?
As for a turning point, it is, and it is against this president and anything he tries to do. This blog will now be dedicated to destroying the little time this president has left, to hounding him incessantly fray after day and pointing out the criminality of his corrupt rule and its monstrous war crimes. I will then dog him until the end of his days until I see him in hell where I will feast upon his entrails and innards.
Republicans did not need immigration reform to win control of Congress, but that could change in the 2016 presidential elections when more Hispanic voters are expected to turn out.
Actually, it was a big reason why they won. The illegal immigrant kids issue that Dems thought would play well on the heart strings.
Few expect the fight to end quietly.
“This is a train wreck,” said Gary Segura, professor of American politics and chair of Chicano/Latino studies at Stanford University. Senator Cruz and other critics, Segura said, “are not going to go quietly into the night, holding hands or otherwise.”
Damn right I'm not going quietly. This has reenergized me when I was so close to quitting.
Nothing, I repeat, NOTHING, can be more important that discrediting this president. I'm going to dog him like a fly on shit!!
I did notice from the Globe text that the comments are soaring through the roof on this. I haven't looked, but having viewed some in the past I can not imagine there are that many defending Obama.
He really stepped in it this time. Maybe he wants to be impeached so he can quit the job.
Mixed reactions from locals on Obama’s immigration plan
Obama’s immigration plan. Can he do that?
In plan to cut deportations, Obama makes the right move
It's a totally lawless nation now, and the Globe endorses it!
"Italian riot police quell latest violence by angry residents against refugees" Associated Press November 14, 2014
ROME — Riot police moved in Thursday to prevent residents of a neighborhood on Rome’s outskirts from attacking refugees living at a holding center in the latest incident of anti-immigrant tensions rocking Italy.
Those are also Obama's refugees, war refugees from North Africa and Syria.
The working-class neighborhood of Tor Sapienza has seen several days and nights of violence against refugees by residents who blame foreigners for crimes. The residents say they’re not racist, but are fed up with what they say are years of neglect by government authorities who have allowed gypsies, migrants, and asylum-seekers to settle in Rome’s peripheries without providing adequate services.
Looks like its a worldwide epidemic and phenomenon in response to the New World Order plans of the global elite and their hand slaves like Obummer.
The UN High Commissioner for Refugees condemned the violence, saying refugees and unaccompanied minors fleeing war and conflict deserve protection, respect, and help integrating, not ‘‘unacceptable’’ acts of violence and intolerance.
In a statement, the commissioner condemned ‘‘extremists’’ who are capitalizing on residents’ fears to fuel conflict.
It's a bunch of propaganda pre$$ people?
Italian commentators say at least some of the perpetrators are believed to be members of far-right groups — there have been chants of ‘‘Il Duce’’ in a reference to Italy’s fascist dictator Benito Mussolini....
Oh, yup, right. That's all code for people against the New World Order being crammed down our throat.
I take such sleights as a badge of honor even if I am no fa$ci$t. Mussolini knew what it was, and we are seeing it right in front of our eyes here in AmeriKa.
"EU members may limit welfare benefits to immigrants, court rules" by Alison Smale | New York Times November 12, 2014
BERLIN — Countries in the European Union can limit access to welfare benefits for citizens from poorer countries in the 28-nation bloc, Europe’s top court ruled Tuesday.
The European Court of Justice ruled that a Romanian woman who migrated to Germany was not entitled to unemployment benefits because she had made no effort to find a job. The woman had sued a German employment center in Leipzig for refusing to grant unemployment benefits for her and her son.
Were there any jobs to be found?
The decision is limited in scope, but is likely to be seized on by leaders in Britain and Germany seeking to tamp down populist furor fed by the belief that poorer Europeans are moving to richer countries to tap into their generous welfare systems. Soon after the ruling, Prime Minister David Cameron wrote on Twitter that it curbed “benefit tourism” and was “simple common sense.”
There are no statistics to size up “welfare tourism,” nor any figures that suggest it has seriously drained public coffers in European states. But in Britain, particularly, popular anger over immigration is thought to have bolstered support for the UK Independence Party, which is posing a right-wing challenge to Cameron and his Conservative Party in elections next May.
That's what happens when lefti$t-$ociali$ts are revealed to be frauds and servants of bankers. I'm living proof of the metamorphosis.
Advisers to Cameron have even floated proposals about capping the movement of immigrants from poorer EU states to Britain. EU officials and Chancellor Angela Merkel of Germany have warned against such a move, noting that it would contravene the principle of free movement, which she has said is not negotiable.
This from nations that scan and grab your crotch at the airport.
At a conference of Britain’s biggest business lobby Monday, some prominent business leaders also argued strongly for free movement within the union.
They want the cheap, mobile labor.
Cameron has promised to lay out plans before Christmas to tackle the rise in immigration. It is relatively easy to win benefits in Britain because workers generally do not have to contribute for long periods before qualifying for benefits.
How much they spending on bombing missions in Iraq?
Merkel said at a Brussels summit meeting last month that Germany, too, was experiencing “very intensive discussions” over the needs of immigrants, and was eagerly awaiting Tuesday’s ruling, involving a Romanian woman, Elisabeta Dano, and her son, Florin, who applied for a form of jobless compensation in Leipzig.
The European court had said in May that the woman was not entitled to the benefits, and Tuesday’s ruling was the final word in the case. Merkel said in Brussels that she would discuss the case with Cameron and others, if necessary.
The ruling provides “a little bit of legal cover” for communities throughout Germany struggling with an influx of refugees and immigrants, said Uwe Lübking, a social policy specialist with the German Association of Cities and Communities.
“But it is only a small building block because it also said that we have to examine each case individually, and not all cases are as clear,” Lübking added, referring to the woman in Leipzig.
He emphasized that the vast majority of EU immigrants come either for a specific job or to find work, and are “sought after here in Germany,” where demographic factors have led to a labor shortage.
Oh, you Europeans are getting the same shit log rolled at you that we are here.
In addition, Lübking noted, “if you look at certain areas in Romania or Bulgaria, you can understand that they hope for a better life.”
Most of the popular anger at perceived “welfare tourism” has centered on Romanians and Bulgarians, who this year became eligible for full freedom of movement throughout the European Union.
It's also been directed at banksters and their government puppets, but my 1% mouthpiece likes to ignore such things.
