Some may find it heartwarming, others may find it disturbing, and still others might find it downright weird! The oddity in question is the picture, tweeted out by White House reporter Pete Souza, featuring the abortion-supporting Roman Catholic Vice President Joe Biden and Barack Obama, the crucifix-covering Commander-in-Chief, grasping each other’s hand in prayer.
The president and his main squeeze … er, I mean main sidekick, Joe Robinette Biden, Jr., gathered together with other faith leaders to discuss how to go about foisting thirty million gate-crashing interlopers on the American people.
At the end of the meeting, Mr. Biden and Mr. Obama joined in circle time to beseech the Lord (whose name Obama chose to delete from his snippet of the video for 150th anniversary of the Gettysburg Address on YouTube).
The heartwarming moment took place while asking an unnamed higher power for blessings and direction on how to go about finding a way to allow criminals who broke the law to remain in America.
Marion Robinson, Mr. Obama’s mother-in-law, who allegedly is a woman of faith herself, was not in attendance, nor was her headless chicken. Neither was Mrs. Obama, whose newest Scriptural-style mantra on behalf of rescuing Obamacare is “there but for the grace of God go I.” Going forward, at least for a season, it looks like out of context New Testament Bible verses will be replacing Michelle’s usual “give up their piece of pie” Marxist gobbledygook.
The two men, although lacking that feminine touch, seemed fully aware that divine intervention would be needed to convince the uncooperative American public who pay their salaries to submit to an illegal invasion. Which may be why the meeting ended in prayer and supplication.
Anyhow, unbeknownst to the contemplative duo, while Joe and Barry held hands with heads bowed, Souza zoomed in and snapped a close up of the men clinging tightly to each other while agreeing in prayer.
The result was a historic record of two great leaders, unabashed in their devotion to God. America’s momentous half-black Muslim-raised president Barack Obama and Joe the Irish-Catholic guy with the bad hair plugs simultaneously displaying affection for each other while humbling themselves before the Almighty in the name of comprehensive immigration reform.

If Americans think “Push #1 for English” is infuriating, or listening to El Bloombito, aka Miguel Bloomberg, follow up all his press conference remarks with “Let me summarize our announcement today for our Spanish speaking New Yorkers” after which el se rompe en (he breaks into) poorly-spoken Spanish, now a US Senator from Virginia has felt moved to ratchet up the drama by delivering a pro-amnesty speech in – you guessed it – Español.
That’s right. Senator Timoteo Kaine (Tim Kaine) , a Democrat from Virginia, felt he could drive home the necessity to pass the immigration bill by reminding the chamber that there are millions of Spanish-speaking people living in the US who simply refuse to assimilate or learn the language and are trying desperately to make English a Second Language for Americans who speak English as a First Language.
Senator Kaine, who defines himself as a “gringo,” opened his trilling, er, I mean thrilling remarks by saying, “El senado ha comenzado un debate histórico sobre una reforma migratoria comprensiva.” This means “The Senate has started an historic debate about comprehensive immigration reform.”
After spouting off in Español for the remainder of his speech, former Governor/current Senator Kaine promised that an English translation would be placed into the Congressional Record for the peons who refuse to accommodate all the illegals who live and work in America by learning to speak Spanish.
Mr. Kaine is bi-lingual because before he became pro-choice and endorsed Barack Obama, while he was still in law school and pro-life, he traveled with the Jesuits to Honduras on a Catholic missionary outreach. Wonder whether Mr. Kaine’s liberalism and support of our socialist/Marxist president is rooted in Jesuit Liberation Theology?
Nonetheless, it was in Honduras where Señor Kaine learned to speak the native language of the Honduran people. Which begs the question: If Timoteo learned Spanish in Honduras, why doesn’t he encourage Hondurans to learn to speak English in America?
Either way, the goal of the Spanish Senate Speech stunt was for a guy born in Minnesota, raised in Kansas City, and now Senator of Virginia to illustrate how accepting he is of being invaded by illegals from Spanish-speaking countries and to prove the “growing power of Spanish-language” trespassers in the U.S.
Moreover, to speak another language on the floor of the Senate “requires unanimous consent” of other senators, which Mr. Kaine sought and was granted. Whether Timoteo bribed the senators with tamales for lunch is unclear.
Whether tamales were involved or not, it’s easy to imagine all the liberal senators being totally trilled, I mean thrilled with Kaine’s Español Show. And then there’s the always politically-correct Republican arm of the Senate that includes: Susana Collins of Maine, Juan McCain of Arizona, Liza Murkowski of Alaska, Decano Heller of Nevada, Marcos Kirk of Illinois, and Lindsey Graham of Carolina del Sur, who probably jumped to their feet and applauded wildly for comments none of them understood.
Kaine said he hopes other Spanish-speaking senators plan to argue in support of immigration this way. Kaine said, “I’m going to cross my fingers that some of the other senators with language fluency might pop up and do the same thing.”
Great idea! In the end, as amnesty that’s being served up as immigration reform is forced down the throats of the American people, the possibilities to drive home the Spanish theme are limitless.
In fact, a nice touch would be for Timoteo to request Mayor El Bloombito don a sombrero and be flown in as a Spanish-speaking guest speaker to address before the United States Senate the dificultador language challenges of illegal immigrants presently squatting illegally in New York City.

Following the Boston Marathon bombing, Candy Crowley of CNN’s State of the Union Sunday show hosted one quarter of the Gang of Eight: Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and the always charming and alluring Democrat from New York, Charles ‘Chucky’ Schumer. Other gang members like Bob ‘Dominican Republic’ Menendez (D-NJ) were missing from the panel.
During the immigration segment, Crowley asked how Tamerlan Tsarnaev being a permanent resident and Dzhokhar a naturalized citizen impacted the Gang of Eight’s immigration reform bill, saying, “Do you see anything in the legal immigration system that you now want to go back and say we need to fix this or that and include it in our bill, Senator Graham, you first?”
Sharing a split screen with Schumer, Graham responded by saying he wants to know how, after Tamerlan was “identified as a potential terrorist,” the FBI “dropped the ball.” Then Graham came up with a brilliant suggestion for something that the House and Senate should have done a decade ago but didn’t when he said, “I think now is the time to bring all the 11 million out of the shadows and find out who they are.”
No offense to Mr. Graham, but it’s hard to imagine that almost 12 years after 9/11 a United States senator would suggest that now is the time to find out more about the millions of people living here illegally.
It gets better. After admitting that he didn’t know who they are or where they’re hiding out, Sen. Graham then suggested that he does know “Most of them are here to work, but…”
But, like the two Chechens who just blew up 180 people in Boston, killing three and dismembering at least 14, Lindsey believes that “[we] may find some terrorists in our midst who have been hiding in the shadows.”
This might be a dumb question but, despite being offered amnesty, is it possible that illegals with nefarious intentions might want to maintain anonymity?
Moving right along, Lindsey Graham then said something about 9/11 he must have thought we didn’t know: “The 19 hijackers were all students who overstayed their visas and the system didn’t capture that.” By proudly stating that eight senators finally figured out how to track individuals who shouldn’t be here, the senator might not have realized it but, he was also confessing that for eleven years the Senate did nothing about those they knew were plotting against us.
Senator Graham’s final contribution was to slowly point out that “What happened in Boston and international terrorism … should urge us to act quicker, not slower.”
Next up was the shameless opportunist from New York, Senator Charles Schumer. Schumer said, “I agree with Lindsey.” Sorry, but anyone agreeing with Lindsey Graham or Chuck Schumer, even if it’s Lindsey and Chuck doing the agreeing, is downright scary. What’s even scarier is Chuck Schumer smiling and nodding his head in agreement with Republican Gang of Eight member Marco Rubio. That right there is a sure sign that Mr. Rubio is wading into dangerous territory.
As if anyone could stop him, Schumer, a man notorious for never shutting up, requested permission to “say a couple of things.” Chuck insisted that the Gang of Eight bill, which is being criticized for many things, one of which is failing to recognize illegal LGBT families whose heart’s desire is to come out as both gay and illegal, “toughens things up.”
Schumer also pledged that, unless their last name is Tsarnaev, “Illegal immigrants with serious criminal backgrounds or those who pose a threat to national security will not be able to attain [legal] status.” Split-screen Schumer then said, “And in fact asylum, which the Tsarnaev family came here on, was greatly toughened up a few years after. They might not have gotten asylum under the present law.” Chucky apparently felt that saying “Might not have” was comforting to the Boston bombing victims as well as a reassurance to the general public.
Then, as if it were possible, Schumer made a statement more stunning than Amnesty Grahamnesty, admitting that after 9/11, Ft. Hood and Boston, and after 40 attempted-but-failed terrorist attacks, it’s high time America got serious about finding out who’s here.
Hard-left liberal Chucky, without one flicker of embarrassment, actually said “There are some… hard right, some otherwise, who oppose our immigration bill from the get- go, and they’re using [Boston] as an excuse.”
After two immigrants blew up 180 people at a marathon, Senator Schumer is accusing quick-fix immigration opponents of using tragedy as an “excuse?” And über-journalist CNN Candy and obviously not “on the hard right” Lindsey sat idly by and let ‘log in his eye’ Schumer accuse political opponents of making “excuses?”
Isn’t Chucky a representative of a political party that is using bereaved family members of the Newtown shooting as an excuse to try to weaken the Second Amendment? Wasn’t it Chuck Schumer who suggested in December on Face the Nation that what happened in Newtown was a “tipping point” and that because children were involved, gun-control advocates may be able to “get something done?”
Excuse-maker Schumer warned: “[w]e’re not going to let them use what happened in Boston as an excuse because our law toughens things up.” What that means is that Chuck isn’t going to allow anyone other than the master of excuse exploitation, Barack Obama, use catastrophe as a pretext to push unpopular policy.
By utilizing weak excuses to accomplish a punch list of progressive political goals, lefty politicians are now accusing others of using “excuses,” and they do it while Schumer and his excuse-making liberal cohorts whittle away at our Constitutional liberties. Therefore, it is incumbent upon the American people to impede Democrats and “some otherwise” (like the RINO sharing the split screen with Chuck Schumer) from bamboozling us into allowing their quest for power to destroy this nation.
