Amnesty claims another victim

July 23, 2014

To the long list of politicians whose careers were ended by amnesty, we can add Georgia Congressman Jack Kingston. Kingston never actually came out for amnesty, but his primary opponent David Perdue firmly tied him to it in this final ad of the campaign:

    My first thought was that maybe an injustice was being done. After all: “Kingston never actually came out for amnesty”. Still if he is against amnesty, he could have said so over his 22 years in office. So maybe the injustice was not so sharp.

    Check this, too: “It should be noted that Kingston, unlike some others, immediately tweeted a message of support for Perdue upon learning that he’d been defeated for the nomination. He should be commended for his generosity in defeat.”

    Illegals, of course, take a lot of entry level jobs. Thus there are tensions in communities with parents of teenagers. Also with Black communities. Perhaps that is a partial explanation for this unexpected endorsement.
    “Atlanta rapper Waka Flocka … tweeted his support in hashtags for the GOP hopeful but offered little in the way of explanation. He wrote: “#VoteForDavidPerdue #USSenate” and included a graphic of a Perdue campaign button.”
    The tweet was later removed as some fans objected…

    Flashback: two images for “that was then, this is now”.

    Ken, here’s a political cartoon you might enjoy. It contrasts Gov Perry with Pres Obama.
    Do a google search on Obama fundraisers vs Bush…astonishing.

      “here’s a political cartoon you might enjoy.”

      It would be funnier if it wasn’t so tragic. Affirmative action gone haywire.

      ^ you’re literally out of ideas, you silly foolish troll.

      The only one who “squawks” nonsense here is YOU

      You obviously cannot defend ANY facet (not one) of the massive failures of your ridiculous liberal agenda, or your inept and incompetent liberal leaders, and so it’s HILARIOUS that your nonsensical ‘squawking’ responses just proves it again & again. You’ve got absolutely nothing, fool.

      Deal with it, dumbass.

        Oh, by the way, Plutard, it’s just sad and pathetic that you’re still cowering behind dozens of sockpuppets since you got shamed off the blog, when you ran away in a sniveling huff, and then came slithering back behind spineless pseudonyms.

        You feckless craven coward.

    ObamaCare and fraud…
    The nonpartisan Government Accountability Office told a House committee that its investigators were able to get subsidized health care under fake names in 11 out of 18 attempts …(government) is still paying premiums for the policies, even as the Obama administration attempts to verify phony documentation.

  6. Jim,MtnViewCA,USA on July 25, 2014 at 7:46 am

    The ObamaCare law, as plainly written, denies health subsidies to people who register through the national ACA exchange. Only state exchanges can give you a subsidy. Recently a court case was brought to enforce that (“Halbig”). The argument was accepted by the DC court of appeals, but an opposite ruling came out of the 4th District.
    Interestingly, the architect of ObamaCare is on video saying that is the plain intent of the law back from 2012. This was known from the beginning. It was done on purpose to put pressure on states to set up exchanges.
    Jonathan Gruber, Professor at MIT, widely is regarded as the architect of both Romneycare and Obamacare. In 2012, Gruber gave a speech in which he stated that the law clearly provided for tax credits only if the individual purchased on a state exchange:
    “I think what’s important to remember politically about this is if you’re a state and you don’t set up an exchange, that means your citizens don’t get their tax credits.”
    This is important because this reading of the law has been dismissed by critics of the Halbig decision as absurd and even dishonest.”

          0bung-holeCare? Oh dear me. I hope that you have health insurance, because you are using names as crutches. Take good care of yourself.

            ^ go asks the hundreds of military veterans who were literally dying to get medical treatment under 0bama’s watch…

            Oh wait, you can’t because they’re DEAD.

            Hundreds of our military dead, thousands more dying, ALL under corrupt liberal government run FRAUD-Care. And, that’s what idiots like you want for the whole nation? Be careful what you wish for, shit4brains.

            Poetic justice will see YOU, and your ilk begging for medical help while you’re sick and dying, but you’ll ALL be gleefully ignored under the exact same corrupt and fraudulent system, you ignorant fool.

            “Died under 0bamacare” will be written on your tombstone.
