The lame stream media
By Armand C. Hale

This opine below is from one American citizen who has plenty to say about the Lame Stream Media's 3 faced way of selective reporting in this country on Obama, selective or no enforcement on U.S. immigration laws, taxes and the DHS. (JMJ)

From Mr. "T" in Texas;

" It looks like the MSM is targeting Bachmann for every little thing that she may make a mistake. But yet, the MSM continues to ignore or gloss over the blatant goofs obmamamoron does; pick and choose which laws to enforce; embarrass the country with foreign dignitaries; family taking extravagant vacations outside of the US on taxpayer money; obvious failures in his comments; his continuous personal attacks on individuals who say things against him; etc, etc.. How can someone who is supposed to be so smart be so stupid? Easy! Elect them to the highest office in the land with no experience whatsoever. This idiot clearly does not understand anything about economics. He (OBAMA) wants to raise taxes as a way to generate "additional" revenue. Revenue? A Freudian slip? Because with this current environment, his free spending antics would do nothing more than generate more spending. Taxes are "regressive" in nature. He can look up that word in the dictionary. But yet, he wants congress to pass bills for more money to spend on infrastructure. Exactly where would that money come from? Oh, that's right, from the increase taxes that will cause additional unemployment. This guy will never get it because he is too into his messianic complex to comprehend he doesn't know anything about anything."

Another example of avoiding enforcing the law or implementing their version of what the law should be.

Napolitano: DHS Not Looking to Deport 'DREAM Act Students'

Napolitano denied the Obama administration is trying to unilaterally execute immigration policies contained in the stalled DREAM Act but at the same time she said it "doesn't make sense" to deport illegal immigrant students who would be covered by the proposal. Her comments Tuesday on Capitol Hill suggest that even if the DREAM Act does not pass, federal immigration officials will not target illegal immigrants who would otherwise be given a reprieve under the bill.

The DREAM Act is a proposal would give illegal immigrants who came to the U.S. as children a chance at legal status if they complete two years of college or military service. Democrats are pushing a new version of the bill after it died in the Senate last year.

Though the latest proposal stands little chance of advancing in the GOP-dominated House, the administration recently issued a memo covering similar ground. The memo from Immigration and Customs Enforcement Director John Morton instructed staff to consider 19 factors when exercising "prosecutorial discretion" or the discretion an ICE attorney has in deciding whether and how to pursue or dismiss an immigration case.

The list includes factors similar to those in the DREAM Act, like whether someone arrived in the U.S. as a "young child," is pursuing an education or has served in the military. Questioned about DHS enforcement Tuesday at a Senate hearing on the DREAM Act, Napolitano confirmed the department is not interested in deporting "DREAM Act students."

"We have provided information about what it would take to do removal of everyone in the country. It's obvious that those resources aren't available, and when you're talking about DREAM Act students, it really doesn't make sense," Napolitano said.

At the same time, Napolitano denied the recent ICE memo was being used to get around the failure of Congress to pass the DREAM Act. She said the administration's enforcement of illegal immigration is "unparalleled," but that federal officials are trying to make that enforcement as effective as possible.

"We simply don't see appropriations necessary in order to remove everyone who is technically removable from the United States, so we have to set priorities," Napolitano said.

In doing so, the department has tried to mostly target serious criminal offenders for deportation. The recent ICE memo stressed factors like a criminal history should weigh against illegal immigrants in federal custody, while factors like whether someone came to the U.S. as a child should weigh in their favor.

"They really do focus on those who are the greatest risk to public safety," Napolitano said Tuesday.

Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, questioned Napolitano on whether her department has ever asked Congress for the resources necessary to fully enforce immigration law. Napolitano twice said her department has provided Congress with "information" about what it would take to remove 11 million people.

"You are not answering my question," Cornyn shot back.

We need to get our act together people! We have at the most 123 days until the next election. I don't know about you but I am tired of me and my wife being treated like 2nd class citizens in my country by illegal aliens and our own federal government. All we are good for is to pay taxes to a government that's equivalent to a "junkie" wanting more and more dope to get the "same cherry high feeling."

You have 123 days. It's not much time in the great scheme of things. If you don't do something, we the people could be the endangered species and not some damn fish!
