Is Mitt Romney a Male Impersonator, and Jan Brewer the Real Man of the GOP? AZ Gov. Stands Alone Against “Obama’s” Criminal Administrative Amnesty

Gov. Jan Brewer, Arizona’s lawful chief executive. My colleague Patrick Cleburne argues persuasively that The Invertebrate should have picked her for his VP nominee. Of course, if he had done that, he wouldn’t have been The Invertebrate. (However, there are virtues to his nominating Ryan. Of that, more anon.)

Arizona: Young criminal invaders, August 16, 2012. “Student protesters walk towards the Arizona Capitol in Phoenix after Gov. Jan Brewer issued an executive order on Wednesday ordering state agencies to deny driver's licenses and other public benefits to young illegal immigrants who obtain work authorizations under a new Obama administration policy.

Every act that this man commits as “president” constitutes yet another crime. At this point, the legal president, I believe, is Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-OH). And yes, that’s cold comfort. (August 15, 2012)

Gov. Brewer reads the riot act to the most notorious criminal in America
By Nicholas Stix

There’s a certain symmetry to a man whose every day spent illegally in the White House is an ongoing crime, who committed multiple crimes to get where he is, and who joyfully commits ever more crimes and violations of the U.S. Constitution daily, aiding and abetting people whose every day spent on American soil is an ongoing crime, who have already committed countless crimes, and who joyfully commit ever more crimes daily.

Brewer shows Obama yet another finger... Arizona's new theme song "We're not gonna take it!"

Go ahead Obama - sick your little puppet Holder on AZ. He can kiss our AZ too.

Jan Brewer leads 'constitutional throwdown' against DREAM Act-lite [Sic; it’s wrong, not just due to capitalization, but because it’s not an act of Congress, “lite” or otherwise]

Jan Brewer, Arizona governor, is again taking on the White House, saying young illegal immigrants covered under a new Obama plan can't get state benefits. It could lead to legal wranglings.

Continuing a longstanding feud with the federal government, Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer on Wednesday ordered state agencies to withhold driver’s licenses and other state benefits from young illegal immigrants applying for the Obama administration’s new deportation deferrals. The decision marks a new chapter in the "constitutional throwdown" between the White House and states vowing to “get tough” on illegal immigration.

President Obama's Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, which took effect Wednesday, allows as many as 2 million illegal immigrants who were brought to the US as children and meet several other criteria to apply for a two-year deportation deferral. The directive also makes them eligible for work permits and college tuition help.

But Governor Brewer’s executive order – which could affect 80,000 people in Arizona – points to challenges ahead.

At this point, Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-OH) is probabaly the lawful chief executive (August 14, 2012)

It amplifies lingering questions about the kind of protection illegal immigrants will get as they apply for the new benefit, and whether coming forward could backfire if Mr. Obama loses his reelection campaign in November. Moreover, it suggests that conservatives are intent on pushing back as hard as they can against a program Brewer has defined as an illegal backdoor “amnesty.”

Brewer’s revolt centers around her attempt to defy a basic federal law, the Real ID Act, in which Congress listed “deferred action” recipients as being eligible to receive driver’s licenses. Real ID was passed in 2005 to improve license security after 9/11, but 20 states, including Arizona, continue to fight the law, saying it doesn’t give enough leeway to states. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, who will ultimately oversee DACA, fought for the repeal of Real ID in 2009, saying it had proved unworkable and unpopular.

The order “is an act of defiance and a constitutional throwdown,” says Michael Olivas, an immigration-law expert at the University of Houston. “The fact is, there is no gray area as to deferred action. Once someone is given that, they have to be given a driver’s license.”

Brewer, who in January raised her finger to the president’s face during a tense encounter on an Arizona airport runway, disagrees.

Undocumented immigrants "are here illegally and unlawfully in the state of Arizona, and it's already been determined that you're not allowed to have a driver's license if you are here illegally," the governor said in a press conference. "The Obama amnesty plan doesn't make them legally here."

Arizona, under Brewer, became a leading force in the anti-illegal immigration movement by passing Senate Bill 1070, which included tough measures designed to shrink the numbers of illegal immigrants. Several other states including Georgia and Alabama followed suit, sparking legal showdowns between the states and the US Department of Justice. This summer, the US Supreme Court struck down most of SB 1070, but retained one key provision: the ability of police officers to ask for identification from those they suspect are in the country illegally.

Brewer’s latest move could be part of an effort to build support in Congress and other states to challenge the constitutionality of DACA, which critics say goes beyond the White House's constitutional purview. Rep. Lamar Smith (R) of Texas, for example, has called DACA “a breach of faith with the American people and the rule of law.”

Brewer's order “is a broader challenge to the federal government, because this [Obama] order, this policy, is clearly illegal,” says Mark Krikorian, director of the Center for Immigration Studies, which advocates stronger immigration laws and enforcement. “It’s trying to set up a confrontation that will focus not just on Governor Brewer’s order but on the illegality of the president’s policy."
"In a way, I think they’re kind of hoping that the Justice Department will sue them before the election,” he says.

Some observers suggest that the Obama administration will move swiftly to block state efforts to withhold benefits from successful DACA applicants.

“I believe the Obama administration is going to come out and say we’re changing the notes and tones of our directive, and say these kids are here under the color of law and protected by US immigration laws and due process, and/or they have a specific nonvisa immigrant category that allows them to have a driver’s license,” Arizona immigration attorney Jose Penalosa told KSAZ-TV on Thursday.

The president has said the policy is legal because the mechanisms for it are already in place and require no new bureaucracy or funding to implement. Expenses will be refunded, he says, through a $465 application fee.

I, and many others I'm sure, know why 'president' Obama is allowed to commit these crimes. It's very simple. It's because he is black. Anyone who dares to question 'his highness' is quickly called a racist. It doesn't matter if all you do is say that Obama-care is not a good idea, or if you question the logic of allowing criminals to have citizenship, you are a racist if you so much as disagree with it.
Yes, I said it. EVERY illegal immigrant is a criminal just for the fact of immigrating illegally, not to mention the fact that most don't pay taxes and many take advantage of social programs without ever paying a penny into them.
As far as Obama goes, he has done more to destroy America and American values in one term than any other president before him. Shielded by his race, he is seemingly above the law as he commits crimes against the constitution and against the American people. I have been called racist many times simply for saying that Obama is a shitty president. As we know, calling every white person a racist is the new thing done to us these days in order to shut us up and keep us timid, because sadly, even being accused of racism is grounds for termination from your job and in some cases, even arrest. However, this of course only applies against whites, and the black community is allowed to be overtly racist and even make threats against 'whitey' in general.
Sadly, I believe that Obama will be elected again this fall, and he will have another 4 years of illegal presidency. This will give him enough time to totally destroy what is left of the Constitution and will bring American morality down to the level of a third world country.

I'd rather have 1 Jan Brewer than 99% of the rest of our govt. At least this woman has the balls to do what needs to be done.

It will be interesting to see how the Department of Homeland Security goes about the task of giving these invaders Arizona driver licenses. What, are they going to federalize the Arizona DMV? Are they going to issue federal driver licenses? Is His Imperial Negritude going to issue another decree relieving all illegal immigrants of the need to have a driver license?

No. What they'll do is sue the State of Arizona and threaten to cut off all funding to the state. At that point political pressure from within AZ will force Brewer to capitulate, or to leave office.

If Brewer ignores the lawsuit and/or calls their bluff, however... things could get interesting.

I think it is very clear what 'president' Obama's(if that's his real name) endgame is. I think he wants nothing less than full citizenship for the invading force of criminals from the south.

While unlikely he can accomplish this in 4 more years occupying the White House, he is certainly capable of laying down the groundwork that will certainly make it possible in the next 10 to 15 years.

If that happens, he will have insured that the Liberals will be in office forever. Surely all the illegal immigrants who will find themselves full citizens for doing nothing more than sneaking over the border will be lifelong Liberal supporters.

Meanwhile, Obama's policies are attracting more and more illegal immigrants over the border. Apparently we are already giving these illegals free schooling and free social programs, and soon free driver's licenses and soon free citizenship will be the next prize.

Contrary to what the Liberal's would have you believe, a majority of these people are not hard working, law-abiding innocents. Many of them commit serious crimes while in the US. A lot of them join gangs and take over neighborhoods. Let's face it, the fact they are here ILLEGALLY in the first place should show anyone with a brain that they have no respect for the law whatsoever. These are the people that Obama(if that's his real name) wants to have the same rights as those who are here legally and have paid taxes their whole life.

I think Obama(if that's his real name) will be reelected and will be able to pass more 'laws' that will further spit on The Constitution and when he is finally out in 2016, he will wipe his ass with what is left of the country and pass it on to the next president. I will be very interested to see who the Liberals will have running for president in 2016 to continue their agenda of passive surrender to minorities. Somehow, I get the feeling it will be another black guy(maybe a full black) or, if Obama(if that's his real name) is able to really advance the Liberal agenda, perhaps a black woman who is a lesbian and possibly also Muslim. The lefties would certainly like that I'm sure.
