Hey guys, you know how like the Teabaggers were going to hold a massive rally in DC to oppose The Kenyan Usurper’s Amnesty for Swarthy Immigrants and maybe finally get him to resign?
Guess what happened?

That’s right: No one showed up. Well, maybe less than a dozen?
Ethnobiology Scholoar Rev. Fishsticks explains what Nation of Immigrants means, obviously. Or doesn’t mean. Or something?
Our old pal One-L is in a league of her own:
Roma, Texas (CNN) — Michele Bachmann leapt out of a black SUV near a high cliff overlooking the Rio Grande, dashed to the edge of a boulder and scanned the river that divides her country from another.
It was a quiet Friday afternoon in this border town where immigrants routinely sneak across the river in inflatable rafts, climb a ravine and seek shelter in a local church. But at this moment, there was little more to see on the Mexican side than some fishermen casting rods and a few horses snacking near the river.
“Today it’s dead,” said Bachmann, a Republican congresswoman from Minnesota, sounding disappointed.
She blamed the stillness on the presence of a hand-held CNN camera.
So Elmer Fudd-like, One-L was gonna catch herself a wabbit, er, immigrant?
Bonus: if you follow the link and watch the video, you get to see IA’s own Steven King present the ultimate border fence.
You can watch the speech at 8PM eastern at the White House website.
And I’m sure you can watch the reaction to it on the networks, 100% of whom refused to carry it. Here’s a preview of the reaction:
Our immigration system has been broken for decades — and every minute we fail to act, millions of people who live in the shadows but want to play by the rules and pay taxes have no way to live right by the law and contribute to our country.
So tomorrow night, President Obama will address the nation to lay out the executive actions he’s taking to fix our broken immigration system. You can watch the President live tomorrow night at 8 p.m. ET at WhiteHouse.gov/Live.
This is a step forward in the President’s plan to work with Congress on passing common-sense, comprehensive immigration reform. He laid out his principles for that reform two years ago in Del Sol High School in Las Vegas — and that’s where he’ll return on Friday to discuss why he is using his executive authority now, and why Republicans in Congress must act to pass a long-term solution to immigration reform.
OK, Wingnuttia, that is a direct challenge! Preznint Carebear says your bluff has been called!
When I snapped that, it was shared 1800 times and liked by 7700+ others.
This move would also make it much less likely that we’ll have immigration reform anytime soon. White House officials are often misinformed on what Republicans are privately discussing, so they don’t understand that many in the Republican Party are trying to find a way to get immigration reform out of the way. This executive order would destroy their efforts.

With apologies to Driftglass for stepping into his beat… but what the fck is Bobo smoking? The Senate bill was smothered in the cradle nearly 17 months ago, and its author Marco ‘Big Gulp’ Rubio has all but gone into the Witness Protection Program on the topic. And less we all forget, in the House, the immigration reform bill was developed by:

They came here to help protect the border but now the first wave of Texas National Guard troops deployed after Governor Rick Perry made the call, are needing assistance to pay for food and gas.
“We were contacted that 50 troops that are in the Valley don’t have any money for food and gas and they need our assistance,” said Food Bank RGV Executive Director Terri Drefke.
They’ve turned to the Food Bank RGV for help since they won’t get paid until September 5th and have been in the Valley since August 11th.
But, you know, as far as meaningless gestures go, it’s helping an indicted Governor/Theocrat/Secessionist/Nitwit prepare for the 2016 Goat Rodeo.(Valley Central via Scissorhead Fran)
