Lists!  Find your own state Senator! - Republican-ruled Georgia is issuing drivers licenses to illegal aliens… 

Who opposes drivers licenses for illegal aliens in Georgia? Who is fighting to stop that practice by helping to pass SB 6?

Contact your state Senator HERE.

Senate Bill 6 has been officially filed in Georgia and would end the practice of the Republican-controlled state issuing drivers licenses to illegal aliens.  The Georgia state Senate has a Republican super-majority. They have the ability to pass anything they choose. 

Enemies of the bill

Republican Governor Nathan Deal 

Deal said in 2010 that Georgia spends about $2.4 billion every year on the crime of illegal immigration. He has remained mostly silent on the issue since. The Chamber of Commerce wants the politicians to raise our taxes to fund improvements in transportation. 

Republican Lt. Governor and President of the Senate, Casey Cagle 

Cagle wants to be governor in 2017. 

* Leadership members n the Senate who want to be governor or Lt. Governor in 2017 and are much more fearful of the business lobby than the voters they know will “forgit” in a month and who they consider to be “The Bubbas.” 

* The entire Georgia business community, led by the Georgia Chamber of Commerce and the Atlanta Metro-Area Chamber of Commerce. In 2014, these same lobbying groups that now control Georgia killed a similar bill on licensing illegals, a resolution that would have allowed Georgia voters to decide via the November 2014 ballot whether to amend the state constitution to make English the official language of government and a ‘Religious Freedom’ bill. 

* Lazy and shy Republicans who will vote for nearly anyone with an ”R” near their name and then treat the public servant as celebrity and master. 

For the politically un-aware who are asking “why?” – the answer is profit. Money. The bottom line. The Chamber members make more money by hiring black-market labor in place of Americans and they want to show they control the state when corporations look to relocate to save money on labor. 

It was the U.S. Chamber of Commerce that teamed up with the ACLU and the National Council of La Raza in an attempt to remove a 2008 Arizona E-Verify law designed to protect American jobs and wages from illegal labor. The case went all the way to the Supreme Court.  The open borders lobby lost that one. 

The Georgia Chamber of Commerce also worked alongside the ACLU here in Georgia in 2011 in a failed attempt to stop Georgia’s E-Verify law. 

There are many ways for Lt. Governor to kill thi sbill. But each time a phone rings in the state Capitol with calls from irate Georgians who want to know what in the world is going on when Republicans fight to reward illegal aliens with a drivers license (the ‘keys to the Kingdom”) it gets a little more difficult. You should know that the Chamber of Commerce lobbyists are everywhere, all day long under the Gold Dome. Like flies. While you are at work. 

The more co-sponsors the bill has, the more difficult it is for the press to ignore it and for Lt. Governor Casey Cagle to kill it - or let it rot in a committee until April of 2016 when the General assembly concludes. 

WHO’S WHO ON FIGHTING ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION IN THE GEORGIA SENATE? 

Two lists. One shows which GOP Senators have signed on to like a 21st century John Hancock . The other who has not signed on. 

There are 38 Senators in the Georgia Senate. 11 of them are working to deter illegal immigration in Georgia on SB 6. 

Pro-enforcement Senators who have sponsored SB 6: 

Senator Josh McKoon Senate Bill 6 Sponsor 

Co-sponsors: 

Steve Gooch

William Ligon

Bill Heath

PK Martin

Greg Kirk

Bruce Thompson

Marty Harbin

Frank Ginn

Michael Williams

Mike Crane 

The below Republican state Senators have not yet signed on…and most of them have no intention of taking a chance on offending senate leadership or even worse for them, the Chamber of Commerce that donates money to their campaigns. Put a different way: They are siding with the Chamber and the ACLU on the illegal alien future Democrat voters who are taking jobs and lowering wages. 

One more thing: Ask yourself the question: “Would any candidate have promised to give illegal aliens a drivers license in Georgia during the campaign just months ago? Would you have voted for them if they did?” 

Senators who have NOT signed on to endorse/co-sponsor SB 6: 

Albers, John (Republican)

 Roswell

Beach, Brandon (Republican)

Ah, yes. The Cobb County Chamber of Commerce legislators. I heard now irrelevent Judson Hill give a ridiculous excuse the other night for "maybe" opposing drivers licenses to illegals.( He wants to know if the bill author wants the bill to pass...) King heard it too.

If anyone thinks Tippens, Hunter Hill and the rest of the money crowd to find any courage here, they are sadly mis-informed.

It is good to hear that Judson Hill may have primary opposition. When is the last time he actually said anything of substance?

Thanks to King for making this public - it doesn't look like the media will allow us to see it elsewhere.

I am sure that all "WAY TO GO GUYS!" systems are GO at the Cobb GOP clubhouse.

We The Bubbas’ and the “Empty Green Suit” border bill in the U.S. House
by DA_King

House Homeland Security Committee chairman Mike McCaul (R) of Texas has introduced a border-security bill (HR 399)…” Remember that, because it will be a big deal in “the news” soon. Experts agree - the McCaul bill is “an empty green suit.”  

Which reminded me: Just after the election in November, I remember grimacing while listening to a radio interview with newly elected Georgia Congressman Rick Allen (R) who said in an answer to a question on immigration that “we should not do anything on immigration until we agree to secure the border.” (the bold italics are mine)  

Note for the “I still can’t tell when I am being treated like a dumb Bubba” voter. Rick Allen didn’t say we shouldn’t do anything about immigration until we secure the border. But kudos to Rep. Rick Allen for being such a quick study in the deceit of immigration politics.  

How to make it look like we all “agree?” Pass a bill with the words “border security” in its title and tell people “It is the toughest border security bill ever before Congress, with real penalties for the administration for not doing their job,” as McCaul said Friday in a statement announcing his new trick…I mean legislation.  

So, for the GOP-bots who still trust the politicians we have sent to Washington from Georgia on the immigration issue: “Agreeing” to secure the border is not securing the border. It isn’t most things that need to be done to secure America.  

From a past MDJ column, a partial list of “agreements” that the politicians in Washington have passed as a way to placate “We The Bubbas”  

1986 — Congress passed the Immigration Reform and Control Act amnesty, with the estimate that it would affect an estimated one million illegal aliens. While promising an end to illegal immigration, the law prohibited the employment of future illegal aliens. The enforcement never really happened. The number of illegals who were legalized was closer to three million. In 2004, only three employers in the entire nation were fined for hiring illegal aliens. The (very) low estimate is that 7 million to 8 million illegal aliens continue to hold American jobs.  

1996 — In the wake of the first World Trade Center bombing, Congress passed another wide-ranging enforcement law, the Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act. Among its provisions was a requirement to develop an automated check-in/check-out visa system for foreign visitors, by which the feds could at least identify those who refused to leave as promised. Congress has mandated such a system five more times for all ports of entry/exit. No such system exists.  

2001 — In line with the 9/11 commission recommendations, the USA Patriot Act expanded the mandated visa departure system requirements to include biometrics. No such system exists.

The recently passed Senate amnesty bill actually dismantles the never-enforced visa monitoring laws. Reasoning? “Too costly.”  

2005 — The REAL ID Act required that state driver’s licenses meet certain minimum standards to be acceptable for federal purposes, such as boarding airplanes. The standards included requiring proof of legal presence in the United States before issuing a license. The driver’s license is essential to illegal aliens seeking to embed themselves in American society. The original deadline for state compliance was adjusted to 2008, later postponed to 2011, then 2013, and now 2017. It seems likely the deadline will be extended yet again, permitting more states to continue issuing licenses to illegal aliens. Terrorists notice and take advantage of these dangerous broken promises.  

2006 — The Secure Fence Act of 2006 required “at least 2 layers of reinforced fencing” along roughly 650 miles of specifically designated stretches of the Mexican border. Less than 40 miles of such double-layered fencing have been built. The remainder is a mix of easily defeated single-layer “pedestrian” fencing and vehicle barriers.  

It is my advice to listen to Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions on immigration. Here is what he says about the McCaul bill.  

We The Bubbas should agree to not agree with any Georgia congressman who comes home peddling this “agreement” as an excuse for another amnesty and expanding legal immigration.  

Agreed?

Seeing this typed up in a nice, neat timeline makes me feel sick...AND angry that my fellow Americans put up with this ongoing "flim-flam" from our elected officials. I guess they figure they'll never run out of Bubbas.

Communist Angela Davis to Keynote MLK Day Event at KSU

“The only path of liberation for black people is that which leads toward complete and radical overthrow of the capitalist class.” Angela Davis, Sunday Keynote speaker at a KSU event in honor of MLK.

A note for people who may have an interest in what goes on at our tax-funded  Georgia universities: Communist and race hustler Angela Davis is coming to Kennesaw State University on Sunday, as keynote speaker. You read that correctly, she will be here for a Martin Luther King Day event on January 18 sponsored by the Kennesaw State African-American Student Alliance.

Davis is described by the far-left magazine The Nation  as “an icon of the Black Power movement.”

The area newspaper out of Dunwoody describes Davis as a “noted scholar, author and veteran Civil Rights activist  and allows that she was acquitted in the early 1970’s for murder and was once on the FBI list of “10 Most Wanted.”

We don’t think the very short description of Davis does her justice.

Here is part of her bio from the noted reference source on leftists Discover the Networks:

“In 1968, as Soviet tanks rolled into Czechoslovakia to crush the “Prague spring,” Davis joined the Communist Party, voicing her belief that “the only path of liberation for black people is that which leads toward complete and radical overthrow of the capitalist class."

In 1970 Davis was implicated by more than 20 witnesses in a plot to free her imprisoned lover, fellow Black Panther George Jackson, by hijacking a Marin County, California courtroom and taking hostage the judge, the prosecuting assistant district attorney, and two jurors. In an ensuing gun battle outside the court building, Judge Harold Haley’s head was blown off by a sawed-off shotgun owned by Ms. Davis. To avoid arrest for her alleged complicity in the plot, Ms. Davis fled California, using aliases and changing her appearance to avoid detection.

Two months later Davis was arrested by the FBI in New York City. At her 1972 trial, Davis presented her version of where she had been and what she had been doing at the time of the shootout. Because she was acting as her own attorney, she could not be cross-examined. She presented a number of alibi witnesses, almost all Communist friends, who testified that she had been with them in Los Angeles playing Scrabble at the time of the Marin slaughter. Prosecution witnesses who placed her in Marin were dismissed by Davis and her fellow attorneys as being unable to accurately identify blacks -- because they were white…” 

This, no doubt, in the minds of the KSU student group, is a tribute to the non-violent, equality agenda of Dr. King. Or maybe to the Black Panther terrorists… we are confused too. 

But no one can say that KSU isn’t “inclusive” – unless one notes the near absence of pro-American speakers invited to address our future leaders and voters. I once watched as KSU hosted former Mexican president Vicente Fox and his demand for open borders in North America (photos here

More quick facts on KSU’s Sunday speaker: 

*Communist professor Emeritus at the University of California’s Santa Cruz campus. 

*Davis has never really written a scholarly or academic text. Her books are little more than revolutionary political tracts. 

*Recipient of the Lenin “Peace Prize” from the police state of East Germany in 1979. 

*Leader of a movement to free all criminals who are minorities claiming that they are political prisoners of the racist United States 

Oh, and Davis ran for Vice President of the United States in 1980 and 1984, alongside Gus Hall - on the Communist Party ticket. 

There is much more to know about Comrade Angela Davis if you are too young to remember her proud and murderous “over-throw America” past here.  

See this event at KSU for yourself

 The Dunwoody newspaper promoting the Davis event includes the time and location of the event right here in Cobb County, Georgia if you want to go see your educational tax dollars at work. 

The MLK observance, which is free and open to the public and begins at 6 p.m. in the Dr. Bobbie Bailey and Family Performing Arts Center, 488 Prillaman Way on the KSU campus. 

I wouldn’t miss it.

The entire purpose of any institution of learning is to expose students to different thoughts and opinions. If we limit our students to one thought we limit thinking. This country is populated by those with many ideas, opinions and thought patterns. If we allow only one thought then we are communist. If you don't like Davis then by all means that is your right.


Better than “miffed?” GOP Georgia Governor Nathan Deal has “reservations” on Emperor’s subversion of the constitution and amnesty

Better than “miffed?” GOP Georgia Governor Nathan Deal has “reservations” on Emperor’s subversion of the constitution and amnesty

Collecting remarks from elected officials around the nation on Obama trashing the constitution with his illegal executive amnesty?

Don’t overlook this one.

Below is a reaction/quote to the Atlanta Newspapers from Nathan Deal, the newly re-elected Republican Governor of Georgia - where we have more illegal aliens than Arizona and where he says we spend more than $2.4 billion annually on the crime of illegal immigration.

“Anytime the legislative process is circumvented, we all should have concerns, and this is no exception. Based on the information being circulated in the news about the proposed order, I have reservations and further questions.”

— Gov. Nathan Deal

When will Kevin Foley the hack not attack, but defend a Republican? When the Republican has sold out to the open borders lobby and the business lobby on helping out future democrat voters.

This is a scream.

(Almost) Everything You Need To Know About Obama's Illegal Executive Amnesty (so far)

From Town Hall

By Conn Carroll

Novemeber 21, 2014

In a primetime address on November 20, President Obama made his sales pitch to the American people for a series of immigration executive actions he will sign on November 21 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Here is what you need to know:

What actions is Obama taking specifically?

The key to Obama's new immigration policy is the creation of one new amnesty program and the expansion of another.

Specifically, Obama's new amnesty program will give illegal immigrants who have been in the United States for at least five years, and who are parents of U.S. citizens or legal residents, a three year work permit. This permit will also allow them to obtain a Social Security number and get a driver's license. Pew estimates that 3.5 million current illegal immigrants will qualify for this program…

VIDEO: Ignore your own lying eyes! Listen to the screaming liberals! Illegal voting just does not happen!

VIDEO: Ignore your own lying eyes! Listen to the screaming liberals!  Illegal voting just does not happen!

A lot to ignore here…

Below is a short video report from North Carolina that shows the mentality of the Democrat get-out-the-vote machine.

Ignore it! Don’t ask if illegal votes elected Democrat Al Franken to the U.S. Senate in 2008. Do not ask if Dear Leader Obama is in office because of illegal voting. Because that would be, you know… “racist.” Right?

 Forget about “motor-voter” registration! Do not ask how many illegal aliens have managed to register to vote here in Georgia where the Republican-controlled state government has been giving illegal aliens a drivers licenses since 2012!

And don’t ask how many more victims of borders will be awarded a Georgia drivers license when Obama expands his own voter-drive program called “DACA - deferred deportation” to millions more illegals.

And don’t ask how many illegal voters the illegal alien lobby here may have registered in Georgia and across the country.

Don’t even ask if illegal voting had any effect on the elections of 2008 or 2010, as is discussed in this news story.

Which reminds me of a grin I saw on Facebook this week:

“Uncle Irving is gone now. He voted conservative in every election in his hometown of Chicago until the day he died, twenty years ago.

Ever since then, he has voted Democrat.”

What ever you do, do not ask how many Georgia Republicans pander to, contribute to and are members of the leftist illegal alien lobby in the Peach State!

Illegal alien murderers released by Obama’s immigration enforcement agency

Illegal alien murderers released by Obama’s immigration enforcement agency

Companion information to my latest MDJ commentary.

Last year, President Barack Hussein Obama’s administration released 36,007 criminal illegal aliens from deportation proceedings and ICE custody, including 169 illegal aliens who have already been convicted of “homicide-related crimes” in the U.S.

*You can see the Center for Immigration Studies revelation, including a chart, from earlier this year here. 

U.S. Senator Charles Grassley sent a letter of inquiry to ICE asking for much more information and last week released a press statement and the ICE response letter with a list of zip codes.

CIS also created a reference map to match zip codes with U.S. locations.

Here  in the Atlanta area, WSB TV did a same-day (Friday, August 22, 2014) segment on the seven killer illegals released that had Georgia zip codes featuring comments from Cobb Sherriff Neil Warren.

On Monday, August 25 WSB followed up with another segment (“Activist: Convicted killers' release not cause for alarm”) with comments from Cobb County’s Village thinker, Rich Pellegrino.

For your education, we link to both WSB TV news segments below.

We also note that I have spent the week since the news of the homicide illegal aliens release trying to pry public comment out of the elected officials elected to serve and protect Georgians. With the exception of the Cobb Sheriff , I have been unable to locate any comment, news or expression of outrage from any of these officials.

We are happy to note that Republican candidate for U.S. Senate, David Perdue, offered this quote to WSB TV on Monday:

"Releasing convicted criminals into our communities is not only dangerous but it is unacceptable. The president's failed policies of amnesty and catch and release have created an illegal immigration crisis and sends the wrong message to those trying to come into our country legally. As David Perdue has said all along, securing our borders and enforcing current laws is a matter of national security and must remain our top priority."

We link to the official website of Governor Nathan Deal. As of 2:00 PM Thursday we see no press release on the illegal alien murderers being released into Georgia.

As we suspect most people will be, we are alarmed at the absence of any visible attempt from politicians to educate constituents on the details of the above and to insure that voters are clear on the position of most officials - including state and local office holders - candidates for office and political party leaders.

And we don’t care who knows it. 

Georgia contains more illegal aliens than does Arizona.

This is a huge issue in our country and the blame lies both with the republicans and democrats. We have countless homeless AMERICAN war veterans and other down-on-their-luck people with absolutely no place to go. Meanwhile, Illegal aliens show up and all of sudden the government can buy a college to house them.

What has our country come to? Enforce our laws and this won't be an issue.

Why are we obligated to house these ILLEGAL people? They already get FREE healthcare at hospitals. What’s next - giving them free food, voting rights, and a EBT card / welfare check?

Good grief! Americans like myself are struggling. I’m employed (temp work) but can’t afford health insurance. I don’t drive much either cause I can’t afford gas. My car insurance, at $25/month (from Insurance Panda), is good, but who knows when Obama will step in and socialize that. I cut cable and internet and I haven’t been out to eat or to the movies in god knows how long. It infuriates me that these people who don’t even belong here are getting more freebies than tax paying, law abiding citizens like myself

Obama basically tells these poor fools that they will be given the world if they sneak into our country. After all, he won't deport or arrest them. Both he and the republicans in congress (AND the illegals) have to go!

Advice for the GOP: The Big Tent starts with common sense – and with Americans VIDEO

It seems that even in Obama’s hometown for community organizing, Americans are starting to be pointedly vocal on his betrayals concerning immigration and equal protection.

 Below is a video and report of a few of these quite observant citizens asking – without any flowers – why our own poor and oppressed are not the center of Dear Leader’s focus. 

A note of suggestion to the Republicans who continually wring their hands on how to enlarge their tent: Try hard to understand that people will eventually “get it” if you make it clear that you stand for equal opportunity and protection under the law for all Americans. And that we as a nation should promise and work for equal opportunity, not an equal outcome.

And that enforcing immigration and employment laws is the base of the “protect American workers” plan.

Catering to the business lobby that is in bed with the ACLU and La Raza et al on immigration enforcement isn’t fooling anyone. Well, except maybe some Georgia state legislators, but no one else…

Compare the cries of the Americans in Chicago to a song sung by a group of illegal aliens who regard themselves as victims of borders (“Illegal Aliens Chant in Spanish: ‘Illegal are your laws and that’s why I’m not leaving”  )

No me digas illegal”/Don’t call me illegal
““Porque eso no lo soy”/Because I am not
““llegal son sus leyes”/Illegal are your laws
““Y por eso no me voy”/And that’s why I’m not leaving…””

Another border crisis

VIDEO: Another border crisis - What you may not know about “the children” and what to expect in Georgia

Readers who have heard about Obama’s request for tax dollars to deal with the stampede of “the children” at the southern border on “the news” may want to see these two videos of what Obama’s goal for life in the entire country looks like.

For my Republican friends, keep telling yourselves that if we just grant another amnesty and double legal immigration, the problem will go away - and that these people, once made “legal” will bloom into small government, low-tax, conservative GOP voters.

Bonus x 2: Congressman Dr. Tom price (GA 6) has released a public statement on Obama’s request for mo’money to throw at the invasion he arranged

And here is a copy of the letter Congressman Dr. Phil Gingrey (GA 11) sent to the director of the Atlanta-based Center for Disease Control.

Great work by Breitbart News.

Great work by the Holy Father:

Pope Francis directly addressed the growing crisis surrounding unaccompanied children on the U.S. border this morning, speaking up on behalf of the young immigrants and calling on the international community to do more to care for their needs.

In a message sent to the Mexico-Holy See Colloquium on Migration and Development, the first Argentinian pope called for an immediate humanitarian response for the roughly 50,000 unaccompanied minors who have crossed the U.S. border this year.



“I would also like to draw attention to the tens of thousands of children who migrate alone, unaccompanied, to escape poverty and violence: This is a category of migrants from Central America and Mexico itself who cross the border with the United States under extreme conditions and in pursuit of a hope that in most cases turns out to be vain,” he said. “They are increasing day by day. This humanitarian emergency requires, as a first urgent measure, these children be welcomed and protected.”
