Governors Should Use "Prosecutorial Discretion" to Fight Amnesty

Republican governors should immediately declare that if Obama launches an administrative amnesty, they will do everything in their power (prosecutorial discretion, pardon power) to avoid penalizing American citizens who commit crimes against illegal aliens. Murder one? Pardon. Rape one? Pardon.

Say that if Obama wants people who commit crimes against illegal aliens prosecuted, he'll have to file civil rights charges on every single case. The state government won't help him a bit.

It's time to fight back.

That is all.

Jeanne Shaheen's Polio Hair-Splitting

Chief counsel for Jeanne Shaheen Judy Reardon recently made fun of Scott Brown for referring to the polio crossing the border, because enterovirus B68 is not the virus that causes traditional polio. This is rather like arguing over whether or not a caribou is a deer. I questioned her on this hairsplitting on twitter, and in response, she blocked me. The conversation is here.

I suggest that people ask Shaheen, or her advisors, on Twitter or at campaign stops, etc., how enterovirus B-68 is substantively different from polio, and to ask why Judy Reardon blocks people asking her about it. Remind her that this disease may be responsible for dozens of paralysis cases.

That is all.

Encouraging the Establishment GOP to Turn Against Amnesty

Recently, John Boehner came out with this statement:

Obama Administration Hiding the Truth about Immigration Actions

Today I donated to Boehner's campaign and to the National Republican Congressional Committee.

I left messages with Boehner and with the NRCC as well as posting on their pages on Facebook, explaining why I donated and why I have not done so in the past.

While I doubt that this shows an actual change of heart on their part, I do think that positive reinforcement is a good way to change behavior. If things go back, I'll stop. If anyone else wants to join me in contributing to the NRCC as positive reinforcement, please do so.

That is all.

Help 24AheadDotCom Stop Obama's Amnesty with the Stop Amnesty Challenge

This is a reprint of a post on 24ahead.com's website:

The Stop Amnesty Challenge

It's vitally important to stop Obama's amnesty-by-executive-order now. If we don't stop it now, Obama could legalize millions of illegal aliens and rolling that back is going to be very difficult.

Thankfully, there's a way to stop Obama's amnesty right now. To make that happen, I'm announcing the Stop Amnesty Challenge. The winner and runner-up of the Challenge will win cash awards, but more importantly will have done a great public service.

Summary of the Challenge

The best way to stop amnesty is to challenge its supporters and show them wrong to their audience. If a politician makes a misleading claim, there's a good chance his audience doesn't know it's misleading. If we then show how he misled his audience, that will tend to keep the politician from making the same claim. It will also reduce the politician's influence over his audience. Other politicians will avoid making the same claim. That's how to stop amnesty: show how amnesty supporters are misleading about what it would do. And, the best way to show that is by asking them tough questions designed to box them in to admitting how they're misleading. As a side-effect, asking politicians tough questions will also help further discredit the media.

How To Enter

To enter the challenge, you'll need to attend an event with a nationally-known politician and ask that politician one of the questions we'll provide. You'll need to get the question and any answers from the politician on good quality video with clear audio. The terms of the Challenge are listed here and by entering you agree that you've read and understood those terms.

The Awards

The First Place winner will receive a cash award of $350. The Second Place winner will receive a cash award of $150. Obviously, you aren't going to be able to retire on those amounts, but your primary motivation should be doing the public service of blocking Obama's amnesty-by-executive-order.

The Questions

You can enter the Challenge by asking any one of these questions:

Question about Ebola and skilled immigration
Question about Obama's executive order on immigration
Question about subsidizing American farmworkers
Question about immigration reform being an amnesty for employers
Question about the DREAM Act
Read those through and decide which you feel most comfortable asking. As part of the Challenge you'll need to get a definitive answer from the politician, but each of the pages linked above has likely things the politician will say and how you can respond. Other questions can be provided or those questions can be modified on request.

Got Questions?

If you have any questions about the Challenge, don't hesitate to ask. For quickest response, tweet any questions to @24AheadDotCom_ .

Can't take the Challenge?

If for some reason you can't take the Challenge but still want to help stop Obama's executive order amnesty, you can still help out by promoting the challenge on social media or to your email contacts.
