Immigration Policy is Law…Not a Suggestion

By Craig Andresen – Right Side Patriots on American Political Radio

Last week, Attorney General Jeff Sessions issued what is, for the moment, a threat and only time will tell if it becomes a promise, that the DOJ will withhold anti-crime funding from the cities of Baltimore, Albuquerque, Stockton and San Bernardino should they fail to change their ways, and begin to cooperate with federal immigration policies.

All those cities mentioned, and so many more, are sanctuary cities, and all of them, and more, are fit to be tied over that threat.

Even Rahm Emmanuel, the uber liberal Mayor of Chicago, is spitting mad to the point that just yesterday, on behalf of his gun-free target rich sanctuary city, he filed a lawsuit against the DOJ over the demands that immigration policy be followed…or else.

Frankly, I fail to see the problem, and perhaps more to the point, I fail to see why the aforementioned cities have their panties in a wad over the possible loss of funding.

To begin with, one must understand the nature of the funding in question.

The Droning of the Constitution and American Citizens

There will be no trial. No due process.

No jury, no attorneys and no questions asked.

The “fundamental transformation” of America continues as Obama has vested in himself, the role of Judge, Jury and Executioner in Chief.

Today, the Dictator will “allow” Members of Congress a peek at HIS drone strategy because, John Brennan will go through his CIA confirmation hearing today as well. It’s an attempt to placate and he won’t be held to it.

The droning of al Awlaki was a trial balloon.

Now, according to a 16 page “leaked” memo, the president of the United States has the authority to kill those he believes to be an al Qaeda leader or affiliate leader in a foreign country.

“…the condition that an operation leader present an “imminent” threat of violent attack against the United States does not require the United States to have clear evidence that a specific attack on U.S. persons and interests will take place in the immediate future. Given the nature of, for example, the terrorist attacks on September 11, in which civilian airliners were hijacked to strike the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, this definition of imminence, which would require the United States to refrain from action until preparations for an attack are concluded, would not allow the United States sufficient time to defend itself.”

According to the above excerpt from the memo, an “imminent” threat does not even have to mean…Imminent.

Given that, does an al Qaeda “leader” mean a leader?

And what, exactly, is an “affiliate” officially?

The problem is, any…ANY president will hold the power of defining “imminent” and “leader” and “affiliate” as well as judging the intent, proximity and anything else including when to push the button to drone the offending party out of existence.

Obama and his henchman, Holder, have taken it upon themselves, sans consent of congress, to invest such immense and easily corrupted power in Obama but, don’t call him a Dictator.

The HELL I won’t.
