Email Doodlings – “US House Declares Obama Amnesty “Null and Void…” Yawn….

by Skip December 4, 2014

Yawn and yawn again.  As we have intimated before, some of our best (and snarkiest!) conversation are not here on GraniteGrok but in our (closed) email group of Groksters.  Occasionally, some of it comes out – and here is one of them as I pretty much took exception to the message of Steve’s post:  US […]

by Skip November 21, 2014

Conservative Review has a quick list of the lies implicit / explicit / omission by Obama last night: Lie #1: Every President has Taken Executive Action on Immigration: No other president has ever issued an amnesty of anywhere near this scope, created it out of thin air, or built it upon a prior executive action […]

Even as Obama calls “Olly, Olly, all in free!”, Mexico is going to charge entry fees

#nhpolitics #Amnesty #ObamaAmnesty #EO #Grok Obama has just declared our Southern border now extends to the tip of South America. — GraniteGrok (@GraniteGrok) November 21, 2014 Yeah, ain’t this the height of irony.  Obama calls out “Free Entry” (and free access to our welfare system) to those coming in through our Southern border and Mexico […]

by Skip November 21, 2014

“Why now?”  “The Country has been waiting over 500 days” Really.  He got grilled by Elizabeth Hasselbeck on Fox this morning from the aspect of legal immigrants who have made a big investment and now Obama simply GIVES illegal immigrants a free pass.  They’re HAPPY because it is more fair.  President Press Secretary Earnest kept harping […]

Our Federal Delegation’s reaction to President Obama’s Executive Order?

by Skip November 21, 2014

So far, VERY quiet.  Have the day off today so I thought that I would call all four of our Federal Representatives (your choice as to whether they represent us or they are the representatives TO us from DC); I called their DC offices rather than a NH one (previous experiences have shown that the […]

What could prevent a determined group of folks who don’t care if they live or die from getting Ebola infected folks into the southern United States across our porous border?  If you timed the exposure rates you could probably get a containers full of infected persons into the country over a number of days or […]

Are Illegals Bringing Tuberculosis to Your School?

Maybe.  Check out what happened in Lynn MA.  (Maybe, it’s just a coincidence?)  Wonder if it could happen here?  Well, maybe if Shaheen, Shea-Porter, and Kuster support Obama’s amnesty plan.  You should ask them where they stand on it, so what I point out below, doesn’t happen in New Hampshire. (All emphasis mine,throughout.) July,  14 […]

Obama said to Punish our enemies – didn’t know that Nevada and Gov. Janet Brewer were enemies

by Skip August 3, 2014

‘We’re gonna punish our enemies and we’re gonna reward our friends who stand with us on issues that are important to us” That’s what President Obama said to a group of Latinos back in 2010.  No second guesses on what he meant by that (re: Nevada and Gov. Janet Brewer (R)) The administration recently delivered 1,000 more young […]

Observation on notion of unregulated and Illegal Immigration – “our future rulers”

by Skip July 29, 2014

I’ve been blogging about Dover, NH and the concerns and eventual outcomes that injecting (either by resettlement or the later chain migration that will happen) up to 3,000 Congolese refugees into a city with merely 30,000 residents.  An Obama “fundamental transformation” to be sure.  I caught this over at Instapundit who quoted Eugene Volokh (law […]

This is not immigration and this is not a “humanitarian crisis”

by Skip July 19, 2014

(H/T: Liberal Logic 101) This illegal invasion has been triggered over several Administrations (both Republican and Democrat) with the seemingly unwillingness to enforce our laws on immigration (see part of the farce here). And does anyone believe that they are paying for anything that they are consuming?  Stop with the “heartless” thoughts – I am asking […]

“The border is secure” – sure, & the Dems have 60K illegal alien kids streaming over the border to back them up

by Skip July 19, 2014

“The border is secure” – really, how stupid do they think we are but they keep saying it anyways?  Saying so doesn’t make it so – else why do these illegal alien kids keep crossing our border without going through the proper and LEGAL process?  Or is it a case where the Democrats (and their […]

Stupid reasoning from Senator Jay Rockefeller (D) on NOT sending illegal alien kids home

by Skip July 18, 2014

Senator Jay Rockefeller (D., W.Va.) expressed his opposition to returning the unaccompanied children at the border back to their home countries, theorizing that the United States could benefit from any highly skilled workers among them, now or in the future.  “I’m not for throwing people out,” Rockefeller tells National Review Online. “I’ve got a huge interest in […]

One of our ‘Grok friends, “K”, decided that she was not going to be one of those that would sit back and just “roll with it” – or like many, retreat into a cocoon of their own making and isolating from the world that seems to be spinning out of control.  With the news of […]

Notable Quote – Ted Cruz

by Skip January 21, 2014

Concerning standing on Principle and the extremely possible negative outcome for voting for Amnesty: “If the House turns around and passes a giant amnesty deal that doesn’t secure the border and grants amnesty, they might as well go and put ‘Harry Reid for Majority Leader’ bumper stickers on the backs of their cars,” Cruz warned, […]

You know, I DO wish that Kelly was palling around with this guy before voting for illegal alien amnesty…

by Skip October 24, 2013

If she had as much of a shred of compassion for the low-skilled low-wage American worker as she does the illegal aliens that Big Biz, Big Govt, and her palie-walies Maverick and Grahamnesty, she wouldn’t be in as much hot water.  It would have been much better if Kelly Ayotte, she of the “common sense”, […]

Let’s not forget to toss in “National Debt Ceiling” and “defund Obamacare” into the mix

“The Tea Party has had it with Republican leaders, abandoning the GOP in stunning numbers at a time when mainstream leaders are arguing for immigration reform and support for an attack on Syria.

by Skip July 28, 2013

Heh!  We Groksters can pop up almost anywhere and at anytime and Grokster Don was at the PBVRC event (unbeknownest to Jim). Since Jim was on GrokTALK! yesterday, and with the Pemi-Baker talk as well, it seems that Jim would like some “clarification time” – we can do that!  Here is his first attempt in […]

Quick thought – “de facto amnesty”

by Skip June 24, 2013

From Republican US Senator Bob Corker, friend of the Gang of 8: “Doing nothing leaves a bigger problem in place,” Corker said. “It’s not like this goes away if we don’t pass a bill. It’s still there. It’s de facto amnesty.” Not really.  I almost always blame Democrats for Perversions of the English Language of […]

Extreme Pandering – really? Republicans can’t even master level 1 Pandering.

by Skip June 2, 2013

(Image H/T: Powerline) It is my belief that any movement on making the actions of illegal aliens now legal will not result in a brand new group of voters for the Republican Party no matter how much the R blowhards in the US Senate (McCain, Graham) would have us believe.  Even the fresh face of […]

Illegal Immigration Benefits Politicians, Employers, and Union Bosses, and Hurts Everyone Else

by Don February 9, 2013

Donna Brazile’s column in Wednesday’s (2/6/13) “The Citizen”,  www.citizen.com, is typical of liberal writings, an attempt to mislead the American people.  Brazile inappropriately interweaves legal and illegal immigration benefits and falsifies immigration enforcement effectiveness. Immigration laws have not been changed because the American people believe in the rule of law and in real “Fairness”.  It […]

Every time that the topic of  illegal immigration comes up, the Proggies all exclaim “But we CAN’T deport all 12 million “undocumented workers!!!” when it comes to enforcing just our current immigration laws – you all but admit that Government can’t find them all?  Their only solution is to just amnesty them So, all you […]
