It’s Not Amnesty?—Ok, Maybe It’s A Back Door Plea Bargain

It’s Not Amnesty?—Ok, Maybe It’s A Back Door Plea Bargain

How can the so called leaders of the USA be so blind to what they will do to this nation by passing the “Alien Immigration-Amnesty/Back Door Plea Bargain Bill?” Maybe they are so blinded by their own personal agendas that they cannot see the ditch ahead, while leaving through the back door after their bi-partisan negotiations.

Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.” (Matthew 15:14)

President Bush in your own words, “you can show leadership and solve this problem once and for all” by not giving this Country to criminals (illegal aliens of any nation) who continue to violate the Constitution and laws of the United States of America!

“Now is the time for comprehensive immigration reform. Now is the time for members of both political parties to stand up and show courage, and take a leadership role and do what’s right for America”, by not giving this Country to criminals (illegal aliens of any nation) who continue to violate the Constitution and laws of the United States of America!

President Bush, liberal Republicans, socialist Democrats and the secular humanist media insults the (legal) citizens of the USA by insisting that their current “Immigration Bill” is not Amnesty.

Well, what is Amnesty?
According to Black’s Law Dictionary—Eighth Edition:
“A pardon extended by the government to a group or class of persons, usu. for a political offense; the act of a sovereign power officially forgiving certain classes of persons who are subject to trial but have not yet been convicted <the 1986 Immigration Reform and Control Act provided amnesty for undocumented aliens already present in the country> ● Unlike an ordinary pardon, amnesty is usu. addressed to crimes against state sovereignty –that is, to political offenses with respect to which forgiveness is deemed more expedient for the public welfare than prosecution and punishment. Amnesty is usu. general, addressed to classes or even communities.”

So if the so called leaders (the term used loosely since they all appear to be simply followers of their own backdoor destructive and blind agendas) and the secular humanist media do not want to be forthright and honest in calling it—their most recent affront on the (legal) citizens of the USA— what it is, then why not call it more accurately a plea bargain, then?

After all what is a Plea Bargain?
According to Black’s Law Dictionary—Eighth Edition:
“A negotiated agreement between a prosecutor and a criminal defendant whereby the defendant pleads guilty to a lesser offense or to one of multiple charges in exchange for some concession by the prosecutor, usu. a more lenient sentence or a dismissal of the other charges — Also termed plea agreement…”

Based upon the most accepted Law Dictionary, the truth is that the current Immigration Bill is Amnesty and/or a Plea Bargain. It is an “Alien Immigration-Amnesty/Plea Bargain Agreement” forced upon “We The People”—the legal citizens of this Country—by narcissistic leaders who have become blind as to who they represent and work for.

So that we are clear, what is a citizen?
According to Black’s Law Dictionary—Eighth Edition:
“A person who, by either birth or naturalization, is a member of a political community and being entitled to enjoy all its civil rights and protections; a member of the civil state, entitled to all its privileges”

What is an alien?
According to Black’s Law Dictionary—Eighth Edition:
“A person who resides within the borders of a country but is not a citizen or subject of that country; a person not owing allegiance to a particular nation. ● In the United States, an alien is a person who was born outside the jurisdiction of the United States, who is subject to some foreign government, and who has not been naturalized under U.S. law.”

What is an immigrant?
According to Black’s Law Dictionary—Eighth Edition:
“A person who arrives in a country to settle there permanently; a person who immigrates.

What does illegal mean?
According to Black’s Law Dictionary—Eighth Edition:
“Forbidden by law; unlawful”

So an illegal immigrant is a person who, forbidden by law, arrives in a country to settle unlawfully there permanently.

Our so called leaders have a huge problem dealing with legal immigrants under the current laws, so how can they think that passing new laws will change any thing?

Recent terror plots by even legal immigrants should be enough to make us wake up and thoroughly scrutinize the current “Alien Immigration-Amnesty/Plea Bargain Agreement”. Actually, what got us into the current situation is non enforcement of our current laws, after the 1986 Immigration Reform and Control Act fiasco.

This is not a time to be politically correct. Hastily legalizing a mass of law violators will be detrimental to the future of this Nation. The full ramifications of the proposed actions by the President and Congress, with this Bill, have yet to be realized and will not be for years to come.

Maybe it is time for “We The People” of America to get serious about replacing, at the voting booth, every politician (Republican, Democrat, Independent or any other) who will not see to it that the very laws they pass are enforced; instead of using new laws as masking tape to cover current laws.

However, the bottom line right now is that, we do not need another law that will not be enforced. All we need are real honest leaders who will see to it that the laws they pass are enforced and have the political backbone to be accountable and take responsible action when they are not enforced. This is why we again have to deal with this issue. In one word it is “negligence”, in three words, it is “dereliction of duty” by the U.S. Presidents and the U.S. Congresses.

The President and the Congress have a duty to uphold the Constitution and Laws of this Nation. Specifically, the President of the United States “…shall take care that the laws be faithfully executed…” (Article II, Section 3 of The Constitution of the United States of America).

Why seek to implement new laws when you do not take care to faithfully execute the current laws?

EVERY Kingdom Divided—A Warning to The UNITED States of America

February 17, 2007

EVERY Kingdom Divided
—A Warning to The UNITED States of America

“Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand!”

If a Nation be divided against itself, that Nation cannot stand and will fall in time!

“Why Did The Roman Empire Fall?” “It fell because its political make-up left it unable to defend itself against invasion.” Other factors aside, “the political system was geared for occasional failures in competent leadership…Rome fell because its political make-up left it unable to defend itself against invasion.” (http://www.fsmitha.com/com/Rome.htm)

May this be a historically based warning to the (not so) UNITED States of America!

Certain mainstream media in America and certain leadership of the Government of the USA are deliberately or unwittingly contributing to a division from within, which is destroying this nation’s core political and spiritual foundation and fabric; possibly beyond repair.

With extremely selfish political posturing occurring each day among the media, various factions and so-called leaders in America, one may forget that this, once, great country was commonly referred to as The UNITED States of America. America has become the DIVIDED states of personal egotistical ambition.

What ever happened to “We the people of the UNITED States”?

“We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.” *

You would think that if, in fact, the media and our so-called leaders had “we the people” in their best interest there may be a time when their own hypocritical, narcissistic and destructive political fighting would subside to insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity. Instead, we have vanity (an excessive belief in self and one’s own abilities or attractiveness to others) as the most central trait of leaders today.

Yes, healthy, honest and truthful debate is good for resolving issues and problems we face in this country, but not to the point where division is unwittingly or purposely created for one’s personal, group or party’s self-serving elitist agenda. At some point a real Leader and Statesman must stand up and say enough is enough, harmony must prevail if we are to be UNITED and stand as “we the people”.

One historical and spiritual fact is definite; JESUS CHRIST knows their thoughts because HE knows their hearts; whether it is deliberate or unwitting it does not matter.

“And Jesus knew their thoughts, and said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand:” (Matthew 12:25)

“And if a kingdom be divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand.
And if a house be divided against itself, that house cannot stand.”
(Mark 3:24-25)

“But he, knowing their thoughts, said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and a house divided against a house falleth.” (Luke 11:17)

As stated very well by a few commentaries on the Bible:

“A kingdom, or a family, can prosper only by living in harmony. The different parts and members must unite in promoting the same objects. If divided–if one part undoes what the other does–it must fall.” [1]

“The welfare of any kingdom, city, or family, depends on its concord and unanimity…” [2]

“Most states and kingdoms fall, not by the power of foreign enemies, but by the weakness due to divisions.” [3]

There can be and will be disagreement, but harmony (tranquility) must prevail within a reasonable time after the debate of divisive issues.

The Declaration of Independence and The Constitution of The United States of America was the foundation doctrine which UNITED WE the People in this once great Nation. Today, it seems that the Constitution is used by our so called leaders and others to divide the people.

May this be A Warning to The United States of America; if a Nation be divided against itself that Nation cannot stand and will fall in time! Because EVERY kingdom divided—against itself is brought to desolation; it is only a matter of time!

*Reference: http://www.mccl.org/abortion_statistics.htm

Why is America Allowing Premeditated Murder of Innocent Babies? When; *“Americans’ views concerning abortion are:
–73% say abortion should be legal only in some circumstances (53%), or illegal in all circumstances (20%). Harris Interactive, April 2006
–88% favor a law requiring doctors to inform patients about alternatives to abortion. CNN/USA Today / Gallup Poll, January 2003

The Answer: The U.S. Supreme Court!
ROE v. WADE, 410 U.S. 113 (1973) U.S. Supreme Court
410 U.S. 113 Roe Et Al. V. Wade, District Attorney Of Dallas County
Appeal From The United States District Court For The Northern District Of Texas No. 70-18.
Argued December 13, 1971 Reargued October 11, 1972
Decided January 22, 1973
Ninth and Fourteenth Amendment Rights

*“Roe v. Wade, 410 U.S. 113 (1973)[1], is a landmark judicial opinion regarding abortion in the United States. According to the U.S. Supreme Court’s Roe decision, most laws against abortion violate a constitutional right to privacy under the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment. The decision overturned all state and federal laws outlawing or restricting abortion that were inconsistent with its holdings. It is one of the most controversial and politically significant cases in U.S. Supreme Court history, and its lesser-known companion case was decided at the same time: Doe v. Bolton, 410 U.S. 179 (1973).[2]

The central holding of Roe v. Wade was that abortions are permissible for any reason a woman chooses, up until the “point at which the fetus becomes ‘viable,’ that is, potentially able to live outside the mother’s womb, albeit with artificial aid. Viability is usually placed at about seven months (28 weeks) but may occur earlier, even at 24 weeks.”[3] The decision prompted national debate that continues to this day over whether terminating pregnancies should be legal (or more precisely, whether a state can choose to deem the act illegal), the role of the Supreme Court in constitutional adjudication, and the role of religious and moral views in the political sphere. Roe v. Wade reshaped national politics, dividing much of the nation into “pro-choice” and “pro-life” camps, and inspiring grassroots activism on both sides.”
