In 2009, the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) estimated that the yearly cost of providing healthcare for illegal aliens was $10.7 billion. It was a difficult figure to approximate as hospitals are not permitted to ask if an emergency room patient is in the country illegally. After all, should an exact total of monies spent even on the delivery of anchor babies (about $10,000 per “anchor”) become known, it would enrage an American public which Democrats especially hope to keep blissfully ignorant about one of the principle reasons for skyrocketing healthcare and health insurance prices—uncompensated costs.

In 1986, EMTALA was signed into law. Part of the COBRA act, EMTALA requires hospitals to provide treatment to anyone who needs it regardless of citizenship status or ability to pay. As the government does NOT reimburse hospitals for such care, a number of hospitals nationwide were forced to close … Continue Reading:Free healthcare for illegals continues the ObamaCare way

In yet another testament to the corrupt if inventive workings of the liberal mind, Attorney General Eric Holder recently decided to defraud the United States Supreme Court in the hope of preventing sections of the Voting Rights Act (VRA) being ruled unconstitutional.
Section 5 of the VRA requires 9 Southern states and a number of jurisdictions in 7 others—all charged with a history of voting rights abuses–to obtain “preclearance” from the DOJ or the District Court of DC before making any changes to state election policies or procedures. Passed into law in 1965, Section 5 was enacted as an “emergency provision” designed to “promote full access to the voting process” and expire in 5 years. (1)
But now, nearly 5 decades later, Section 5 has become the darling of Civil Rights groups, the Civil Rights Division of the DOJ and liberal bureaucrats throughout the federal government as it has been … Continue Reading:Eric Holder instructs Justice Department to defraud Supreme Court

Just how much more can one man take? America’s real sheriff, the one doing what his constituents have asked him to do, Sheriff Joe Arpaio has received a threat against his life in the form of a violent online rant sent from Mexico even as he lies hospitalized with a broken left shoulder. The 80 year old Republican peace officer also faces a fall recall after he was elected to an historic sixth term in November! And Arizona is bracing for more crime resulting from the release of 300 to 500 illegal aliens into the state’s southern border area as Eric Holder and his Department of Justice ignore their sworn duty to protect American citizens threatened daily by hordes of invaders. Of course, many believe the number of released illegals will be closer to 2000, their being back on the street having been conveniently blamed on the sequester. (1)
An individual identified online as … Continue Reading:Sheriff Joe withstands death threats and the criminal dealings of the Obama Regime

A news story was released stating that a number of gun manufacturers around the country will no longer sell to Law Enforcement officers or government agencies within the states that have the most stringent weapons restrictions against their citizen’s rights to own similar weapons. (1)
Upon reading this story, as well the comments, this was my answer to one particular comment, whose author was worried about “Law Enforcement” officers and officials being punished for the decisions of various government toadies.
This country has gone to hell since our local police were turned from “Peace Officers” into “Law Enforcement Officers”. We no longer have a police force concerned about the local citizenry, we have a roving occupying force of heavily armed tax collectors on constant alert for our wallets and freedoms.
As a member of a generational police family, I can tell you without equivocation that there is nothing special about my family members … Continue Reading:“Law enforcement” officials are no less dangerous than the public at large

In Barack Obama’s Department of Justice, “hate crimes” where the perpetrator is Black are ignored and those where Whites or Hispanics stand accused are rocketed through the federal courts.
Of course this is not a novel observation, but a recent case coming out of Compton, California in which an Hispanic gang committed an “interracial hate crime” underlines the ridiculous disparity in how “hate crimes” are handled by the DoJ.
Recently, two members of a street gang calling itself the “NKs” which stands for N%%^#$ Killers were indicted for chasing an African-American juvenile through the streets for the “crime” of living in “their territory.” This took place on December 31, 2012. They “yelled racial slurs, demanded the youth and his friends move away and broke a window.” There is no more to these “charges.”
Describing this “dastardly” crime, an FBI agent (doubtlessly speaking in somber tones) said, “No one should tolerate … Continue Reading:When hate crimes aren’t hate crimes: In Obama’s America some comrades are more equal than others
