SNL’s Barack Obama Pushes The Schoolhouse Rock Immigraton Bill Down The Capitol Steps … Making His Own Executive Order
What makes good humor is it has to contain some truth. What makes great humor is it is 100% the truth …
Last night SNL opened the show with a skit that was fantastically funny and pathetically sad all at the same time. For all those who are old enough to remember the School House Rocks, ‘I’m Just a Bill,’ completely understood the biting sarcasm and mockery of the political system. Instead of the way we learned it as kids and the way the US Constitution provides for … “I’m just a bill, yes I’m only a bill, and I’m sitting here on Capitol Hill,” Barack Obama decided to change law on his own. The result, SNL’s I’m an executive order.
As the immigration bill sings to the young boy explaining how a law is made, Obama tosses the bill down the Capitol Hill steps in lieu of his executive order, “I’m an executive order and I pretty much just happen”.
Boy: [After Obama pushes the bill down the Capitol Hill steps] President Obama, what’s the big idea, that bill was just trying to become a law.
Obama: I realize that. But you know son there is an even easier way to get things done around here. It’s called an executive order.
Executive Order: “I’m an executive order and I pretty much just happen”. And that’s it.
Boy: Wait a second, don’t you have to go through Congress at some point?
Executive Order: Awe, that’s adorable. You still think that’s how government works. Ha, ha, ha.
Immigration Bill: [After climbing back up the steps] Don’t listen to them son. Look at the midterm elections, people clearly don’t want this, ahh [Obama pushes the bill down the steps again].
Boy: Mr President, is this Constitutional?
Obama: Of course, Presidents issue executive orders all the time.
Executive Order: That’s right. I could do lots of things. I’ll create national park or a new holiday.
Obama: Or grant legal status to 5 million undocumented immigrants.
Executive Order: Wait, what!!!
Obama: Yup, that’s what you are going to do.
Executive Order: Om my God, I didn’t have time to read myself. Whoa!!! OK, go big or go home, huh?
Finally, the first biting political spoof from Saturday Night Live in a while: the Bill from Schoolhouse Rock explains to a student how he becomes a law, only to be violently beat up by Barack Obama and his new best friend, “Executive Order.”
Even then, the poor Executive Order still thinks he’s used for simple things, like declaring holidays and creating national parks, until Obama informs him that he’s going to be used to grant amnesty to 5 million undocumented immigrants. His reaction: “Whoa.”
Remember When Emperor Barack Obama Said He Did Not Have the Power to Take Executive Action on Immigration?
Not only does the Emperor have no clothes, he has no credibility and no Constitutional authority …
Remember when Emperor Barack Obama said the following:
- “I take the Constitution very seriously, the biggest problems that we facing right now is George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the Executive branch and not go through Congress at all. And that is what I intend to reverse when I am President of the United States of America.”
- “There are enough laws on the books by Congress that are very clear in terms of how we have to enforce our immigration system.”
- “For me to simply through executive order ignore those congressional mandates would not conform with my appropriate role as president.”
- “With respect to the notion that I can just suspend deportations through executive order, that’s just not the case.”
- “There are laws on the books that I have to enforce”.
- “If in fact I could solve all these problems without passing laws in Congress, then I would do so.”
- “This notion that I can change laws unilaterally is just not true”.
Really Mr. President? Because last night when you announced your executive order on immigration, you pretty much did a 180 on every single previous remark you have ever made on the issue. So much for the rule of law and the US Constitution. If Barack Obama cared so much about these families and even went so far to cite scripture, why didn’t he do it sooner? Just curious, does Obama care about the American legal citizens whose families are about t be affected by this influx? How about all the people who came to the United States legally?
The president will also announce plans to shift enforcement efforts, ordering federal law enforcement officers to narrow their focus to those illegal immigrants with criminal records, gang affiliations or ties to terrorism.
And Obama will expand the total number of high-tech visas that are available, as well as loosen restrictions so that more would-be entrepreneurs can travel legally to the United States to launch companies.
The president and other Cabinet and senior administration officials plan to “fan out” across the country over the coming weeks in order to promote the executive actions, according to one aide.
The moves are all aimed at “bringing some accountability to our broken immigration system,” a senior administration official said Thursday.
The biggest change to the immigration system will be a new program that allows the parents of U.S. citizens and permanent residents to apply for work permits and deferred deportation.
An estimated 4 million parents will be eligible for the initiative. They are people who have been in the United States for at least five years and have no felony convictions but are currently in the country illegally.
Emperor Obama Shreds the US Constitution with Immigration Amnesty Executive Order … Obama Rewards the Breaking of the Rule of Law
Barack Obama: If you like your illegal immigrant, you can keep your illegal immigrant …
So this is the way that Barack Obama starts on his promise of wanting to work with the GOP following the Democrat midterm election butt kicking? Tonight, Barack Obama went there and played with matches. Obama started his speech by saying, “Today our immigration system is broken and everybody knows it.” Obama should know it is broken, he helped break it by not enforcing current laws on the books. Tonight, Obama tried to play the emotion and guilt card on Americans saying, let’s be honest, tracking down, rounding up and deporting millions of people isn’t realistic. Anyone who suggests otherwise isn’t being straight with you. It’s also not who we are as Americans.” One usually does use emotion when they can’t stand on the law. Actually, Americans are people who believe in the rule of law and the US Constitution. Obviously, Barack Obama does not.
One has to ask themselves, why now? If this was such an important issue and so vital to America and Latinos, why didn’t he do it back in 2009-2010 when Democrats had control of both the House and the Senate? Why didn’t he do it in 2012 before his reelection? Why didn’t he make this speech and put forth this executive order before the 2014 midterm elections? I think we all know the answer. Sorry to be so cynical, but this president has lost all right to be trusted. Especially when Obama has said over and over gain that he did not have the legal authority to do so. But suddenly … tonight he has the legal authority. So does that mean he had been lying all of the time in the past? Like I said previously, Obama has zero credibility.
Interestingly enough, the ABC, CBS and NBC did not cover Obama’s speech.
Full transcript can be read HERE.
OBAMA: First, we’ll build on our progress at the border with additional resources for our law enforcement personnel so that they can stem the flow of illegal crossings and speed the return of those who do cross over.
Second, I’ll make it easier and faster for high-skilled immigrants, graduates and entrepreneurs to stay and contribute to our economy, as so many business leaders proposed.
Third, we’ll take steps to deal responsibly with the millions of undocumented immigrants who already had live in our country.
I want to say more about this third issue, because it generates the most passion and controversy. Even as we are a nation of immigrants, we’re also a nation of laws. Undocumented workers broke our immigration laws, and I believe that they must be held accountable, especially those who may be dangerous.
That’s why over the past six years deportations of criminals are up 80 percent, and that’s why we’re going to keep focusing enforcement resources on actual threats to our security. Felons, not families. Criminals, not children. Gang members, not a mom who’s working hard to provide for her kids. We’ll prioritize, just like law e enforcement does every day.
But even as we focus on deporting criminals, the fact is millions of immigrants in every state, of every race and nationality still live here illegally.
And let’s be honest, tracking down, rounding up and deporting millions of people isn’t realistic. Anyone who suggests otherwise isn’t being straight with you. It’s also not who we are as Americans.
It wasn’t too long ago when Obama said he wasn’t the Emperor of the United States and his job was to execute laws that are passed.
Jon Stewart Slams Barack Obama on Immigration … Didn’t Obama Previously Says, ‘I’m Not the Emperor of The United States’
LOOKS LIKE OBAMA THINKS HE IS THE EMPEROR OF THE UNITED STATES …
Wow, even Comedy Channel’s Jon Stewart mocked Barack Obama for his flip-flop on his, “I am not an Emperor,” in taking executive action on immigration. In 2013 Obama was telling people who could not change immigration alone as that is not how the US Constitution worked and he was not the Emperor of the United States. As Stewart amusingly opined, “all it took was one bad midterm election” for Obama to go from “I’m not an emperor” to, well, this.
Jon Stewart took a shot at President Obama tonight for promising executive action on immigration over a year after saying he can’t because he’s not an “emperor.”
Stewart found it amusing that “all it took was one bad midterm election” for Obama to go from “I’m not an emperor” to, well, this.
“My job is to execute laws that are passed and Congress right now has not changed what I consider to be a broken immigration system,” Obama said. “I’m the president of the United States. I’m not the emperor of the United States.”
Stewart said, though, that it only took “one bad midterm election” for the president to totally change his tune and abandon his initial “I’m not the emperor” sentiment.
But Republicans weren’t immune to Stewart’s critiques either, as he went after numerous politicians and talking heads during the segment.
EXIT QUESTION: How on earth does this man justify his actions when his own words states the contrary?
Barack Obama Wrote in his 2006 Autobiography, ‘The Audacity of Hope’ … An Influx of Illegal Immigrants Will harm “the Wages of Blue-Collar Americans” & “Put Strains on an Already Overburdened Safety Net.”
THE AUDACITY OF HIS OWN WORDS: BARACK OBAMA OWN WORDS REGARDING ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION AND THE DAMAGE IT WILL CAUSE AMERICANS …
The below statements are not from Conservative or GOP critics of Barack Obama’s amnesty plan. They are not of Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham or anyone at Fox News. They are in fact the words of Sen. Barack Obama in 2006 when he was running for president and penned his autobiography, ‘The Audacity of Hope’. Obama admits that such a large influx of low-skilled workers would threaten to depress further the wages of blue-collar Americans and put strains on an already overburdened safety net. That was then and this is now, what changed? Obama wants to sign an executive order that would allow this to happen. So does Obama not care about black people? Blacks already have an more than double the rate of white unemployment rate. Does he not care about blue collar workers?
I wrote what, its so hard to keep the lies straight?
“There’s no denying that many blacks share the same anxieties as many whites about the wave of illegal immigration flooding our Southern border—a sense that what’s happening now is fundamentally different from what has gone on before,” then-Senator Obama wrote in his 2006 autobiography, “The Audacity of Hope: Thoughts on Reclaiming the American Dream.”
“Not all these fears are irrational.”
“The number of immigrants added to the labor force every year is of a magnitude not seen in this country for over a century,” Obama noted. “If this huge influx of mostly low-skill workers provides some benefits to the economy as a whole—especially by keeping our workforce young, in contrast to an increasingly geriatric Europe and Japan—it also threatens to depress further the wages of blue-collar Americans and put strains on an already overburdened safety net.”
Hey Hispanic voters, La Raza and the rest, did you read this … Obama also reveals that he personally feels “patriotic resentment” when he sees Mexican flags at immigration rallies. Hmm, is Barack Obama a racist?
“And if I’m honest with myself, I must admit that I’m not entirely immune to such nativist sentiments,” Obama wrote. “When I see Mexican flags waved at pro-immigration demonstrations, I sometimes feel a flush of patriotic resentment. When I’m forced to use a translator to communicate with the guy fixing my car, I feel a certain frustration.”
Charles Krauthammer Says that Obama Executive Order Bypassing Congress and Constitution is an “Impeachable Offense”
IMPEACHABLE OFFENSE … THE LAWLESS BARACK OBAMA.
Tonight on The Kelly Files, Charles Krauthammer said to Megyn Kelly that amnesty by Barack Obama through executive order is an “impeachable offense.” However, Krauthammer feels that the GOP missed their opportunity as they failed to act in past cases with Obama of executive power grabs and his rewriting laws on his own and ruling by fiat. I also find it hard to believe that the Republicans would ever impeach Obama, hell they do not seem to have the CO-JONES to defund Obamacare or a potential amnesty in fear of shutting don the government and being blamed. Hey gutless GOP leadership, how well did you do in the last election following the 2013 government shut down?
Krauthammer went on to say that the Democrats will rue the day that Barack Obama act in his imperialist manner. One day the GOP will be back in power and it may just be pay back time. Obama claims that he is forced into passing immigrations policy via executive order because the Republicans have not passed anything. Really? Wasn’t it Barack Obama and the Democrats that had complete control of the House and Senate in 2009 and 2010 and did nothing to pass immigration? The president is nothing but a liar and a trouble maker trying to divide America and shred the US Constitution.
“If the circumstances were different, if we were at the beginning of a presidency, if we hadn’t had years when the Congress has been supine and unresponsive at other grabs of their authority by the executive–like Obama unilaterally changing Obamacare after it was passed about 30 times with no response from the Congress–the same as Obama essentially re-writing some of the drug laws.
“This idea of prosecutorial discretion is really a travesty. It is intended for extreme cases. For a case where you want to show mercy for an individual or two where it’s unusual incident, unusual circumstances and you say, okay, we’re going to give this person a pass. It was never intended to abolish a whole class of people subject to a law and to essentially abolish whole sections of a law. And that’s exactly what’s happening here.”

FOX NEWS Reports that Barack Obama to Announce 10-Point Amnesty Immigration Plan via Exectutive Action Early Next week
WHAT ELSE WOULD YOU EXPECT A COMMUNITY AGITATOR TO DO …
President Barack Obama and Democrats got their Donkey “asses” handed to them in the 2014 midterm elections as a complete and total repudiation of his policies and agenda. So what does Obama do, doubles down on those same reviled policies as would Saul Alinsky. Fox News is reporting that Barack Obama is going to go ahead and poison the well when he returns to Washington, DC by passing an Executive Order declaring amnesty to millions of illegals. Of course he is, because this is what some one does who just wants to cause chaos and dismantle a country. Obama has two years left to destroy America and he could care less whether he does it legally or not. Obama is a lawless president.
Remember when Obama, while pandering to Laraza, said he would like to go it alone, but he could not because that is not is how our sytem works, that is not how our Democracy works, that is not how our Constitution was written. Hmm, what changed other than the fact that this president is looking to reek as much havoc as he can, even though he knows he has no authority to do so. He just does not care.
Video Hat Tip – The Gateway Pundit
President Obama is planning to unveil a 10-part plan for overhauling U.S. immigration policy via executive action — including suspending deportations for millions — as early as next Friday, a source close to the White House told Fox News.
The president’s plans were contained in a draft proposal from a U.S. government agency. The source said the plan could be announced as early as Nov. 21, though the date might slip a few days pending final White House approval.
Obama was briefed at the White House by Homeland Security officials before leaving on his Asia-Pacific trip last week, Fox News has learned.
White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest told reporters traveling with Obama in Burma Thursday that the president had not made a final decision on any executive actions concerning immigration and would not announce any until he returned to Washington.
The plan calls for expanding deferred action for illegal immigrants who came to the U.S. as children — but also for the parents of U.S. citizens and legal permanent residents.
The latter could allow upwards of 4.5 million illegal immigrant adults with U.S.-born children to stay, according to estimates.
GOP House Speaker John Boehner Warns Barack Obama on Go-It-Alone Ammnesty Immigration Change … “When You Play With matches, You Take the Risk of Buring Yourself”
On the eve of Republican leaders meeting with Barack Obama on Friday, both sides have participated in verbal jousting following the landslide victories for the GOP during the November 4th midterm elections.
What is this nonsense about the GOP and Obama coming together and finding common ground? You have had 6 years to find common ground and vote appropriately. The American people spoke this past Tuesday and they 100% completely repudiated the Obama and Democrat agenda. Why on Earth would you think “We the People” handed control of the Senate to Republicans and increased the number of Republicans in the already GOP controlled House? It certainly was not to capitulate to Obama’s radical agenda.
When Obama speaks today about what he wants Speaker Boehner, you might want to remind him that … “ELECTIONS HAVE CONSEQUENCES”.
Republican House Speaker John Boehner warned Barack Obama ahead of their meeting to not act unilaterally and go-it-alone on amnesty. He stated, if you play with matches, you will get burned”. Oh great, you mean Boehner wants to have GOP buy in on amnesty? I would like to remind Speaker Boehner and Republicans the same, your base will trash you and throw all of you out if you go ahead on amnesty. Also, nothing should be done until the new House and Senate members are in place. You are a lame duck Congress and nothing of any great significance need to be passed. You had your opportunity.
“I’ve made clear to the president that if he acts unilaterally on his own, outside of authority, he will poison the well,” Boehner said in a Thursday press conference. “And there will be no chance for immigration reform moving in this Congress. It’s as simple as that.”
The speaker trotted out the same warning when pressed on whether executive action would be a “catalyst” for congressional action on immigration, as the White House has suggested. “When you play with matches, you take the risk of burning yourself,” he cautioned. “And [President Obama] is going to burn himself if he continues to go down this path.”
DEMOCRAT SEN. MARK PRYOR SAYS OBAMA HAS BEEN A DRAG ON HIS CAMPAIGN … NO, YOUR VOTING WITH AND AGREEMENT WITH THE OBAMA AGENDA HAS BROUGHT YOU DOWN.
Incumbent Democrat Arkansas Senator Mark Pryor tries in vain to distance himself from President Barack Obama as he finds himself well behind by 7% in the recent RCP average polling to Republican challenger Tom Cotton. Unfortunately for Pryor, it is hard to suddenly call Obama a drag on his campaign and distance one’s self when Sen. Mark Pryor had voted with Obama 93% of the time. However it has been even worse this year … Roll Call lists Pryor in their 10 Most Vulnerable Senators of 2014 and has him voting in support for Obama’s agenda 97% of the time.
In recent days, Pryor has gone farther than he ever has to put daylight between himself and the president, telling Fox News that the biggest liability in his re-election bid is Obama.
“Well, you know, he has been a drag. I mean, I am just going to be honest about that,” Pryor said. “People here know that I have had my fair share of disagreements with him. You can look at gun control issues, Keystone pipeline. I have never supported one of his budgets.”
Sorry Mark Pryor, it is not Obama that is a drag on your campaign, it is that you voted with Obama’s failed policies that the good people of Arkansas soundly reject. You do not represent the folks in Arkansas and much like Blanche Lincoln in 2010, you will be retired from the US Senate.
Isn’t that interesting that Mark Pryor considers President Barack Obama a drag on his campaign, because in2008 Pryor said that Barack Obama was “exactly the right guy for this moment in history”. REALLY? So Sen. Pryor, do you still feel the same? Challenger Tom Cotton has stated that Pryor has voted with Obama 93% of the time and it has been proved by Politifact to be a true statement. Make no mistake about it, Pryor voted to pass Obamacare. Also, he voted for the Obama illegal’s amnesty plan.
Sen. Mark Pryor cast the deciding vote on Obamacare and says he would do it all over again and vote for it, even though the people of Arkansas strongly disapproved of it and the so-called Affordable Health care law is not affordable and does not ensure you can keep your doctor or your insurance, if you liked it. Pryor does not represent Arkansas, he represents the Obama agenda.
Here’s Pryor’s presidential support rate since 2009, when Obama took office.
Year – Presidential support rate
2009 – 95 percent
2010 – 92 percent
2011 – 95 percent
2012 – 91 percent
2013 – 90 percent
Pryor’s votes have lined up with Obama’s stated position on that vote between 90 and 95 percent of the time for the past five years. Cotton’s figure — 93 percent — is right smack in the middle. (The average is 92.6 percent.) So it’s pretty accurate.
It was not that long ago when Arkansas Senator Mark Pryor was singing the praises of Barack Obama and stumping for him asking others to vote for him. Pryor stated that Obama had the leadership skills, the vision and the hope that America needs. Pryor went on to say in 2008 that elections have consequences. Pryor asked those in attendance to go out and work as hard as they can for Barack Obama and “let’s bring the chance to America that we need”. Flash-forward to 2014 and I guess Pryor has had a change of hear. Guess what Sen. Pryor, elections do have consequences and the change that America needs includes removing you from office.
EXIT QUESTION: Pryor says Barack Obama has been a drag … is that racist?
Chairman of the RNC Rance Priebus Says GOP Will Stop Barack Obama’s ‘Un-American’ Amnesty if We Win Senate
Hey GOP … You better do something to rally the base ahead of the 2014 midterm elections.
In a radio interview with Laura Ingraham, Republican National Committee chairman Rance Priebus said, “It is un-American for a president to try and do such a thing. I want to make it clear: There is no part of me, there is not a molecule in my body that agrees with the president on executive amnesty.” Laura Ingraham told the RNC chair that Republicans better explain how amnesty will destroy the country and not let Democrats say that I am against amnesty too. Laura rightfully took Rance Priebus to task and told him that the GOP better get aggressive on amnesty and get a spine and a message.
Good for you Laura, listening to Priebus is exactly why we do not see a real wave election.
I don’t support it. It is wrong,” Priebus said. “It is un-American for a president to try and do such a thing. I want to make it clear: There is no part of me, there is not a molecule in my body that agrees with the president on executive amnesty.”
Priebus promised the hundreds of activists on the call that the Republican Party, if it takes the Senate on Nov. 4 in the upcoming midterm elections, will do everything in its power to stop Obama from proceeding on the executive amnesty. Priebus even boldly predicted that Republicans can and will succeed in stopping Obama if elected on Nov. 4.
“While I can’t speak for the legislature, I’m very confident we will stop that,” Priebus said. “We will do everything we can to make sure it doesn’t happen: Defunding, going to court, injunction. You name it. It’s wrong. It’s illegal. And for so many reasons, and just the basic fabric of this country, we can’t allow it to happen and we won’t let it happen. I don’t know how to be any stronger than that. I’m telling you, everything we can do to stop it we will.”
