When contacted by the Journal on President Barack Obama's recent immigration announcement, King said: “Like most Americans, I have great sympathy for the young people who were brought here as babies illegally. But that’s not what this is about. This is about incrementalism on amnesty. This will be followed by a demand that their parents should be legal.”

This is rather amusing. The panicked Obama “Hope and Change” — oops — I mean “Forward” campaign staff is struggling to handle a simple and un-welcomed question being asked of American voters: Are you better off than you were four years ago? (Certainly the 47 percent who depend on Obama’s government say “yes.”)

And for millions of illegal aliens in Obama’s America, the clear answer is a resounding “si!”

The “food-stamp president” from Chicago should be a smash hit with the fugitive illegal alien class. Regardless of the Constitution and the Founders’ hope for a nation governed by the Rule of Law, those people never had it so good. And that is really saying something.

As astonishing as it is, we are told there are still American voters who are undecided on their vote for president in November.

For all concerned, a look at a few illegal immigration facts surrounding Democrat Dear Leader’s war on enforcement and self-reliance to mull over on your way to the voting booth:

 Obama’s Agriculture Department is encouraging food stamp use on foreign language radio. Yes, the USDA is targeting Spanish speakers with radio “novelas” promoting food stamp usage. Telenovelas are a popular form of entertainment in Latin American countries. ( See related video on my MDJ blog.)

Food stamp use reached a record 46.7 million people in June, and according to Bloomberg News, food-stamp spending more than doubled in four years.

“This administration has been hawking food stamps” U.S. Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) told Bloomberg this week. “Every additional dollar in this program is borrowed money,” he said. “It’s one more example of government incompetence.”

The feds report spending on food stamps, officially called the ‘Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program – SNAP,’ totaled $6.21 billion in June. The record is $6.26 billion in September 2011. “Change” indeed.

Americans who have been constantly told — and accepted as fact — that “undocumented workers” cannot access welfare benefits may be asking what Obama’s “come get ‘em” food stamp program has to do with illegal aliens. Here’s what: The magic “anchor babies” — children born to illegal alien parents in the U.S. — are currently regarded as automatic U.S. citizens and are eligible for welfare at birth. Including food stamps. And Medicaid. And more…

 Well-coached 21st century illegal aliens understand that the more children they can produce, the easier it is to access American welfare benefits which then aid the entire family. And they then scream “You can’t deport me, I have an American citizen child…!” While marching in the street against any immigration enforcement. “Cheap labor in the shadows” indeed.

Each USDA-produced food stamp novela, titled “PARQUE ALEGRIA,” or “HAPPINESS PARK,” presents a semi-dramatic scenario involving characters convincing others to get on food stamps, or explaining how much healthier it is to be on food stamps.

The USDA is not promoting an equivalent English-language drama series, says Washington’s Daily Caller.

This is no-doubt regarded by the illegal alien lobby as “hate-reporting.”

 Another “hate-fact?” According to the U.S. Census and the respected Center for Immigration Studies most illegal alien families collect some sort of welfare. Judicial Watch sums it up: “Census Bureau data reveals that most U.S. families headed by illegal immigrants use taxpayer-funded welfare programs on behalf of their American-born anchor babies. Even before the recession, immigrant households with children used welfare programs at consistently higher rates than natives …”

“Just looking for a better life” indeed.

It may help some voters to decide on how Americans should move forward to know the Democrats proudly and shamelessly welcomed an illegal alien as a featured speaker at their national convention. You read that correctly. Illegal alien addresses Democrat political convention on national TV. How heartwarming.

The illegal alien lobby blogosphere is squealing in delight at how far they have moved forward since Obama and the Dems began ruling in the White House.

“In choosing to have someone who defiantly remains present in the United States in violation of federal law address the convention during prime time is nothing more than a celebration of lawlessness. And by celebrating illegal immigration, the Democratic Party is sending a clear message that our immigration laws are not only inconsequential, but that the people who break our laws are heroes,” said Dan Stein, president of the Federation of American Immigration Reform (FAIR). I agree.

The question is: Are Americans better off than they were four years ago? The other question is: If the GOP cannot take the White House from Obama, can they beat anyone … ever ?

Mr. King, there is nothing you can say to the America hating liberals that would make them change on Obama. They are the target of the media bias because they are unable to think or reason - or even research issues for themselves and accept everything they want to be true as fact.

When Obama literally bowed down to Arab rulers, I suspected it was all over. When Republicans like Tom Price and Phil Gingrey stayed silent on his immigration fraud and executive amnesty, I was sure we were lost. I will not vote for Republicans again if I live until the next 2014 election.

If Obama wins, the USA has seen its best days pass by. When mindless, arrogant idiots like Kevin Foley can draw even one reader who swallows his regurgitation of Dem propaganda it is a sign of the times. Mr. King, thank you for your courage.

Foley, Allen West is still a proud black man. Does Kevin really think we are as dumb as he is?Kevin Foley on "bashing" when he is outsmarted, outclassed and out educated and shown for the fool that he is by D.A. Kng on the newspaper's blog. This is what happens to people who want the immigration laws enforced and oppose amnesty like King does:

"Yes, Mr. King, it's racial. You can stop pretending now. Along with Jan Brewer and Joe Arpaio, you've simply found a way to camouflage your bias against Latinos and Hispanics by wrapping yourself in the American flag and crying "our laws are being broken!". And like a lot of demagogues you're even somewhat famous hereabouts, where it's not terribly difficult to find other bigoted bullies who'll line up with you.

Haven't we seen this movie before? It used to be "uppity Negros" who "didn't know their place" in the old Jim Crow era; burning Freedom Rider buses, poll taxes, and Bull Connor's attack dogs.

Not only is our government broken, our nation is broken. Almost exactly in half. One side wants conservatism and all that entails, one side wants liberalism and all that entails. The lines are drawn, the swords are ready, and the result on November is oh so consequential. But whoever wins, how are we going to govern this country? 49% are going to feel wronged, angry, vindictive. At the end of the day, we are heading toward a split. Not the Blue-Grey of 1861, but the Red-Blue of 2021. Eventually we may have to go our separate ways. Let the Blue States go to liberal nirvana and let us Red State types alone to live our lives, to not be dicated to. I would think that the Blues would want to rid themselves of hating, bigoted, cheap, racist types like the we Reds anyway. If we are so disgusting to the Blues, just let us go and you can have all the gay marriages, abortions, taxes, illegals, and anything else you want without a single argument. Please let us Reds go peacefully and the Blues can have the lives they've always wanted without our pushback. I do not advocate for armed revolution, I advocate for freedom for each side to do as they wish. Freedom from the perceived oppression that both side seek to impose on the other. Let us go our own ways, peacefully and respectfully. Just let us go. With the lines so sharply drawn, I get misty eyed but there appears to be no other way. Just let us go to re-build what Washington, Jefferson, Henry, and Adams fought for. If these ideals do not appeal to the Blues, just let us go.

Bruce in Michigan (whoever you are) - You ever heard of compromise? Washington, Jefferson, Henry, and Adams sure did. There would have been no America without compromise.

That's how things got done in the old days before Rush Limbaugh and his ilk made it fashionable for the likes of D.A. King to viciously bash anyone with whom he disagrees. The discussion is over when you start dropping the racial slurs.

Dick Lugar, a highly respected Republican senator who served Indiana for decades, lost his seat because he was "accused" of compromising with Democrats by tea partiers. Want to see the problem? Look in the mirror.

I am with you Bruce.

States rights if you will. Certainly not a new concept.

I think you would be surprised how many "pink" states you would have because most Americans want to be in the reasonable middle.

The problem we face now is that whoever controls the politics in DC rule the day and as you pointed out, are inclined to impose their beliefs on approximately 50% of the population that invariably resent it.

Dick Lugar? Really he left the Republican party long ago, but didn't tell any one.

Kevin just because the vast majority of America support "Legal immigration" @ 1.2 Million a year by the way, but detest those who sneaked over our borders and protest they want this or that. Ronald Reagan gave an amnesty to millions on the promise No more. This is one promise both Republican and Democrats can agree on...

Foley - for a Democrat hack like you to bring up "viciously bash anyone ..." is too rich for words. You regularly prove here that the "basher" is you. And there is no one who doesn't realize that the gunk you write here is cut and pasted from Obama campaign mail and the Huffinfton Post/MSNBC fringe. I still remember your frustration when King showed you up yet again and you ATTACKED HIM FOR THE NUMBER OF TWITTER FOLOWERS YOU SAY HE HAS.

Yes, a party of lawlessness. Wish I could teach this along with George Washington's address, but I did point out his warnings about lawlessness. I hope they connect the dots.

Sincerely,

P.S. Kevin Foley, can you stick to the subject instead of reading off emails from the Obama campaign?

The Presidents Legacy, and this bad economy goes back to his days as a Lawyer in the 1990's.

When he was lead counsel for on a class action law suit against banks that started the "Sub Prime" Mortgage issue that started this down turn, and his other policies just drives the economy worst..

The media will not allow Obama to be exposed. A lifetime of experience could not prepare me for what I see being reported, and not reported in this election. I pity the young people who will neve know what America was like as a republic if Obama wins.

Dear Mr. King,

Assuming your questions were not rhetorical,

Yes, and ....yes, but not this time, buddy.

Hope that helped.

Foley - typical response from you, you hack. Nothing touy want to say about Obama's food stamp drive?

President Obama constantly repeats how many millions of jobs have been created during his administration. When President Obama boasts of the number of jobs created during his administration, the numbers he cites may be correct, but he doesn't count the other jobs that were lost during his administration. His critics cite the latter. Both can claim to be right because they are talking about different things.

What has been the net effect? During this administration, the proportion of the working-age population that has a job has fallen to the lowest level in decades. The official unemployment rate does not count the millions of people who have simply given up looking for a job.

If everybody gave up looking for a job, the official unemployment rate would fall to zero. But that would hardly mean that the problem was solved or that the "stimulus" worked. Creating particular jobs does not mean a net increase in jobs.

And let us not forget the millions who are now on SS disabiity - for life - with a diagnosis of "depression" because they have not been able to find a job and feel they are worthless. Figures can tell the story that anyone wants them to tell - but to get a tarue picture you need ALL of the figures as Groover points out

Such a short memory.

In September of 2008, Bush's recession was spinning out of control. The economy had shed 1 million jobs, a number that would exceed 3 million by the time he left office.

Since taking office, Obama has recovered all of the 4.5 million jobs the economy lost.

Yes, I'd say we're better off. Obama leads Romney 50-45% in a new NBC-WSJ poll, so I'm not alone. Thanks for asking.

We want and need our immigration laws enforced. Medicaid expenses for illegal aliens' children born here is skyrocketing, even though their dad is employed, usually paid in cash.

Not only medical expenses, but the dental expenses are unreal for these children who have baby bottles and sippy cups filled with sugary drinks long past the time to stop these practices.

Taxpayers are either stupid or uninformed. Thanks DA for keeping this tsunami front and forward.

The Presidents legacy goes back to 1990's with his lawsuit when he was a lawyer who sued Banks that made them make loans to people that had no way of repaying them. This was one of the Biggest reason our economy crashed. "Sub-Prime" Loans....
