DETROIT – States have the authority to enforce immigration laws and protect their borders, Michigan Attorney General Mike Cox said Wednesday in a legal brief on behalf of nine states supporting Arizona’s immigration law.

Cox, one of five Republicans running for Michigan governor, said Michigan is the lead state backing Arizona in federal court and is joined by Alabama, Florida, Nebraska, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, South Dakota, Texas and Virginia, as well as the Northern Mariana Islands.

The Arizona law, set to take effect July 29, directs officers to question people about their immigration status during the enforcement of other laws such as traffic stops and if there’s a reasonable suspicion they’re in the U.S. illegally.

President Barack Obama’s administration recently filed suit in federal court to block it, arguing immigration is a federal issue. The law’s backers say Congress isn’t doing anything meaningful about illegal immigration, so it’s the state’s duty to step up.

“Arizona, Michigan and every other state have the authority to enforce immigration laws, and it is appalling to see President Obama use taxpayer dollars to stop a state’s efforts to protect its own borders,” Cox said in a statement.

Arizona’s Republican Gov. Jan Brewer, in a statement released by Cox’s office, said she was thankful for the support.

In a telephone interview, Cox said the nine states supporting Arizona represents “a lot of states,” considering it was only Monday that he asked other state attorneys general to join him. The brief was filed in U.S. District Court in Arizona on the same day as the deadline for such filings.

“By lawsuit, rather than by legislation, the federal government seeks to negate this preexisting power of the states to verify a person’s immigration status and similarly seeks to reject the assistance that the states can lawfully provide to the Federal government,” the brief states.

The brief doesn’t represent the first time Cox has clashed with the Obama administration. Earlier this year, he joined with more than a dozen other attorneys general to file a lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of federal health care changes signed into law by the Democratic president.

Like with his stance on health care, the immigration brief again puts Cox at odds with Democratic Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm. Granholm, who can’t seek re-election because of term limits, disagrees with the Arizona law, her press secretary Liz Boyd said. The Michigan primary is less than three weeks away on Aug. 3.

“It’s a patently political ploy in his quest for the Republican nomination for governor,” Boyd said.

NOW for the TRUE side–the side of TRUTH…

Arizona Governor Jan Brewer and former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin today launched an effort aimed at educating the country on the federal governments failure to secure our nations southern border and its failure to address the human tragedy that is occurring as a result.

They also asked Americans to stand up and support Arizona. Key to the Secure the Border—Support Arizona effort is the launching of a new website devoted to these issues: www.SecuretheBorder.org.

~Attorney General A$$-Hat

A person, of either gender, whose behavior displays such ignorance/obnoxiousness that you would like to make them wear their own ass as a hat.

Usage: “Can you believe that my boss is making me stay until 9 pm on a Friday!?” “What an asshat.”

* a person who is being or acting like an idiot/ass

Man that kid is such a donkey. Thus…

Couldn't they JUST call us "Saltine" I kinda like "Snow"...

Noun. Slang word used to refer to those of European ancestry. The word is thought to have either derived from the sound of a whip being cracked by slave owners, or because crackers are generally white in color.

I’m still waiting for the word “Cracker” to be referred to as the “C-word” the way (ya know) is constantly referred to as the “N-word”.

…white people aren’t dumb enough to walk around calling each other that word because it’s intended to be demeaning

For months now, national polls have mostly contained downbeat news for President Obama, with the most recent coming out on Tuesday: a Washington Post/ABC News survey finding a drop in confidence in his ability to make the right decisions for the country and a CBS News poll that found most Americans don’t believe his economic policies are making much difference.


But there have also been some stark warning signs for Obama in polls of voters in key states, raising concern about how perception of the administration’s performance might color this year’s midterm elections, and highlighting challenges Obama could face in a 2012 re-election campaign.

We wrote two weeks ago about Obama’s troubles in the bellwether state of Ohio, with its 20 electoral votes — a state he carried by 51.4 percent to 46.8 percent in 2008, but where voters now disapprove of his performance by a 49 percent to 40 percent margin. Disapproval among independents was even higher.

Pennsylvania, with its 21 electoral votes, is a state in the Republican cross-hairs when it comes to their comeback hopes, including in the current tight Senate race between Democrat Joe Sestak and Republican Pat Toomey.


The latest poll by Quinnipiac University, conducted July 6-11, shows that Pennsylvania presents a picture for Obama that is very similar to that of Ohio. (The poll figures we cited for Ohio were also from Quinnipiac).

Add the free-swinging Internet to President Obama’s control-or-destroy targets. That means they are going after you because the Internet is open to everyone. It is the most democratic (with a small “d”) of all the media. It’s free and open, and the Stalinists in Washington intend to change all that.

Setting the stage

Ever since he assumed the presidency, Barack Obama has pursued every Marxist ruler’s ultimate dream — to put the media under his control so as to make them his personal propaganda ministry in everything but name.

We had media that were inching toward that scenario — from roughly the post World War II years until the late eighties, when President Ronald Reagan refused to sign a bill — rammed through Congress — that would have restored the anti-free speech Orwellian-sounding “Fairness Doctrine” which had been struck down by the courts.

Ooops! A “counter-revolution,” Comrade!

Not long after that, the half-to-two-thirds of the population who were unimpressed with the high-profile hucksters of “conventional wisdom” finally had access to voices that — with notable exceptions — previously had been barred from all but obscure corners of the public square. And trust me, there were people plotting to marginalize or displace the “notable exceptions.”

So now that the media is closer to balance, the administration’s appointees aim to control the news through several initiatives, not the least of which is so-called “net neutrality.” Like all Orwellian schemes, this one has as its goal the exact opposite of what its name suggests.

The enemies of free speech are placing their friends all throughout this administration. For example:

~Snippets…

* Enter an acolyte of Marxists

Meet Ben Scott, who has just been named to a State Department position that WND Books defines as “a policy adviser for innovation.” In this context, one can suspect that “innovation” is code language for mischief.

WND Books (the publisher of the huge investigative work The Manchurian President) tells us that until now, Ben Scott had been a Policy Director for a George Soros-funded, Marxist-founded organization calling itself Free Press (another group whose name fits the Orwellian strain in nomenclature).

Scott authored a book which was edited by Free Press founder Robert W. McChesney, a University of Illinois professor and former editor of Marxist Journal Monthly Review.

In The Manchurian President, authors Aaron Klein and Brenda J. Elliott write that McChesney has said outright that, “In the end, there is no answer but to remove, brick by brick, the capitalist system itself, rebuilding the entire society on socialist principles.”

* You are what you advocate?

Such as Mark Lloyd, Obama’s diversity czar inside the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). He has urged committed leftists to harass conservative radio stations by filing complaints with the FCC.

Klein and Elliott also cite White House regulatory czar Cass Sunstein, who wants a “New Deal Fairness Doctrine” to regulate the media. Sunstein “not only argues for bringing socialism to the United States, he even lends support to communism.”

To buttress the latter point, the book cites the stated Cold War goals of the Soviet Union — “the right to a job, health care, and a social minimum” — which Sunstein compares to the U.S. goals of “civil and political liberties.”

In Sunstein’s world, that is what the Cold War was all about. How silly of us to oppose the Soviets when they merely wanted to dominate the world, even if they had to add significantly to communism’s more than 100-million dead victims to do it. The miserable wretches at hard labor in the Gulag enjoyed “the right to a job” just like the high-wage factory or office workers in the U.S. So what’s all the fuss?

* The takeover attempt

By a 3-2 vote, the FCC on June 16 — under the chairmanship of Julius “Caesar” Genachowski — moved the agency toward the power to regulate the transmission component of broadband Internet service. Genachowski — Obama’s Harvard law classmate — thus sets the table for regulating the Internet under rules that were written for the telephone company in the thirties.

* Sound familiar?

Recalling how the act-alike, think-alike, do-alike media used to dominate before the “Fairness” Doctrine was scrapped, such heavy-handedness by a federal agency is nothing short of frightening.

Today, more robust debate has better enabled Americans to sass back the liberal establishment. The socialist-communist radicals populating the administration are alarmed at the diversity of voices in today’s media. Obama’s own media echo chamber is still operating, but that’s not good enough for the Stalinists. They consider it their birthright to attain 100% control — most especially to put the impudent Internet upstarts in their place.

This control-freak instinct no doubt meets the approval of left-wing moneybags puppetmaster George Soros, who said — in a similar context when free speech rudely intruded on the media — “I’m going to do something about it.”

* So here’s what you can do…

“But there is no laughing about a government that wants to control cyber space, the last bastion of freedom of speech in our crumbling democracy,” said Baker.

Senate Bill 773, as written by West Virginia Sen. Jay Rockefeller, Democrat, would create new “emergency” powers for the President to have power over any “non-governmental” computer networks, whether public or private, that are declared by the President to be “critical.”

Before the Summer recess, the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee unanimously approved Protecting Cyberspace As a National Asset Act of 2010.

The bill, co-sponsored by Senators Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.), Susan Collins (R-Maine) and Thomas Carper (D-Del.), gives the President the authority to order independent operators of “critical infrastructure” to completely shutdown the Internet.

During an interview, Sen. Lieberman used the cybersecurity system utlized by the People’s Republic of China, a decidely totalitarian government, as an example of his own bill’s applications.

In the House of Representatives, Congresswoman Jane Harman (D-Calif.) introduced similar legislation on June 16, which was sent to the appropriate committees for debate.

The Senate bill if passed would give the President of the United States the authority to declare a “cyber emergency” and close down the Internet by disconnecting users.

In addition, it will require professional IT people to be certified by the federal government, something that angers many IT technicians and those who believe in the First Amendment.

Americans are being deceived by the news media and their elected officials in Washington, DC and it’s Americans who will suffer from that deception, according to information technology experts.

This stealth legislation is being sponsored by the powerful and highly partisan Senator Jay Rockefeller (D-WV) and the liberal Senator Olympia Snow (R-ME), claim critics.

“The fact that a man [Rockefeller] who visited other nations to give them a heads up about our intentions [to invade Iraq] would now suddenly care about security is laughable,” said political strategist Mike Baker.

~Please keep in mind the lineage of Bilderberg follows ANY Rockerfeller skank~ JP

“Once Americans realize what’s happening it may be too late thanks to Obama’s supporters in the news media. Do a search and you won’t see stories about this power grab in the major media,” warns Baker.
