Lynch Defends Obama’s Immigration Policies

Erica Werner and Eric Tucker, My Way, January 28, 2015

Challenged by Republicans, Attorney General nominee Loretta Lynch on Wednesday defended President Barack Obama’s decision to shelter millions of immigrants from deportation though they live in the country illegally.

She said that under the administration’s policy, the Department of Homeland Security is focusing its efforts on the removal of “the most dangerous of the undocumented immigrants among us.”

“It seems to be a reasonable way to marshal limited resources to deal with the problem” of illegal immigration, she said.

Lynch, the U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of New York, is widely expected to win confirmation easily, if only because Republicans are so eager for Holder’s tenure to end. He has been a lightning rod for conservative criticism, clashing with Republicans and becoming the first sitting attorney general held in contempt of Congress.

    This is reason enough not to vote for conformation.

    • Bon, From the Land of Babble

      The GOP will fold like a cheap suit.

      • dd121

        Of course they will. That’s why I’m so pissed. If we had a parliamentary system we could at least get some representation.

      • archer

        Ventura is right there really is no difference any more between the parties. They all have either been bought off or blackmailed, what’s good for America is no longer a consideration to them.

        • texasoysterman

          Well, Ventura does happen to be correct. But that sentiment was put forth by George Wallace almost 50 years ago and probably by others even earlier.
          But, just because Ventura is right in making that statement doesn’t mean he’s not an idiot.

  • phorning

    The only criticism I would make of Senator Sessions during the Obama administration is that he voted to confirm Holder. Good to see he won’t make that mistake with Lynch.

    • Black Swan

      Excellent point and one well worth remembering when he’s held up as a paragon of white representation.

      • phorning

        He is still the best we have in the Senate and it is not like the vote against Holder would have prevented his confirmation.

        • Black Swan

          Then why did he do it?

          He went against those who supported and voted for him.

          But then, he, like every other politician answers to his big donors.

  • Whitetrashgang

    Nice to see another black throw all other black people under the bus.With most black people on welfare cant they at least do something about all the illegals, who hurt them the worse?

    • That’s because Loretta Lynch doesn’t think ‘Black Lives Matter.’

      • Whitetrashgang

        Comment of the month.

    • propagandaoftruth

      I admit I didn’t read it. What could she possibly be but Erica Holder?

      There’s nothing to see here Folk. Move on.

    • Black Swan

      Not as long as blacks are continued to be told that the cause of all their poverty, misery and failure is the White race.

  • Chip Carver

    More evidence she’s a tool for those in charge. And not too bright either. If she had integrity, she would question why the Usual Suspects are flooding America with these Amerindians and mestizos who take work away from the small percentage of her own people who actually work.

    • Sparky

      The African Obama is in control. Naturally, he stacks the deck with those of the same race and/or mindset that he has. Right in front of your eyes. No magic required.

      • Fletch

        But … but … I thought Obama was groomed for his position as president and is controlled by others to meet their group evolutionary strategy. /sarc

        • Harley Sims

          Those poor black folks are just pawns. Who’d a thunk it.

        • Black Swan

          Nope. He did it all on his own through his own sheer determination and extremely high intelligence. No help from AA. None at all. Just look at his school records! His extraordinary SAT scores and exceptional college grades.

          Wait? What’s that? They’ve been SEALED by judicial order? What do you mean Obama spent approximately $6 million making sure no one gets a look at his academic records? We have academic records for every single president except Obama.

          Well, he’s obviously highly intelligent, it’s obvious from the words he speaks when he reads off of a tele-prompter and just look at his masterful, exquisitely-written books both of which were best sellers.

          What? They were ghost written? What do you mean?

          Only a racist would question Obama’s intelligence or intentions, right?

      • Black Swan

        Obama is not in control. He does what he is told and reads whatever is fed into his teleprompter. He is a useful idiot and tool of his paymasters.

        He is also dumb. Do not give him credit for running the U.S., he certainly is not.

        • MooTieFighter

          Bingo. He is a groomed speaker. Globalist have had him prepped and ready for years. He has served them well.

      • MooTieFighter

        I believe at last count his administration has fired/forced to retire over 200 high ranking military officers. This is a big deal.

    • MooTieFighter

      Blacks as a whole are not supportive of America. Even most in the military are there for grants/financial assistance etc… Blacks don’t mind watching America dissolve, even if it affects them negatively (and it will). Only proud, patriotic Americans should be making our laws and representing us; however, we are now being represented by those that don’t even care about America, and it shows.

    • Hammerheart

      At this point I think it’s best to cease resistance on the civil and political level. Let’s face it ladies and gentlemen, the game is rigged and we’re not supposed to win.

      On the other hand, let’s take a look at a few scenarios currently occurring and will still be in the forseeable future:

      -usual suspects import more Latin immigrants into the southwestern US. This directly affects blacks negatively. They truly do not like each other. This is like inviting the fox into the chicken coup. Black jobs will be lost, states welfare budgets will be stretched thin, and both parties have low thresholds for violence. Just don’t get caught in the crossfire.

      -on the otherside of the diversity train you have people of alternative sexuality, radical feminists, academic Marxists etc… while they’re overwhelmingly anti religious for some reason they going to bat for the muslims who effectively want to conquer the world in the name of Mohammed. Last I checked in Islam land women are lower than dogs, you need to stone the gays, and the only worthwhile education is studying the Koran which puts them directly against the very people who are importing them. Their ideals and beliefs couldn’t be anymore in opposition with each other.

      Just let the diversity train derail. Meanwhile I’m preparing to buy land in Idaho and refreshing on the infantry tactics I learned in the military. My advice is get out of urban areas asap.

      Well, if you want to get technical about it, yeah.

    • Bon, From the Land of Babble

      Ignorance or willful misunderstanding of American law disqualifies her from a position as Attorney General of the U.S.

      • MooTieFighter

        of course, it does. at least in a world of common sense, logic and morality.

  • MekongDelta69

    What she said is a well-known fact from her past. But it doesn’t matter what she says, because most of the useless Republicans will vote her in. They’re petrified of being called ‘racist’ and ‘sexist.’ What a useless bunch of people on ‘our side'[sic].

  • Dave4088

    Loretta Lynch is just another Obongo mini me and affirmative action AG. Did anyone other than FOX News think she was honestly going to be to the right of Holder and Obongo on the issues?

    There used to be a time when everyone understood that illegal aliens had no rights, let alone a “right” to work while in the country illegally. And I’ll be shocked if the stupid/treason party puts up much resistance other than some customary bluff and bluster for the cameras.

    • Black Swan

      She’s a tool alright. Maybe the hidden agenda is to pit browns and blacks against Whites and against each other.

      You mean multiculturalism and “diversity” won’t bring about a complete, peaceful, heaven-on-earth utopia?

      Yeah, more like a workers’ paradise akin to Russia in the 30s.

  • Caucasoid88

    Barack Obama does not care about black people.

    • D.B. Cooper

      Uh, dead wrong. His ENTIRE career has been 50% helping black people, and 50% hating white people.

      • Does this mean that he’s an ‘equal opportunity’ destroyer?

      • Caucasoid88

        I know—just saying cause illegals take all of the strawberry picking jobs that should be theirs.

    • Black Swan

      I don’t think he cares about anything except himself. He is a hedonist.

      Maybe Reggie, but that too is part of his hedonism.

      • Caucasoid88

        Guys, I was just pretending to be Kanye.

    • MooTieFighter

      Barack Obama does not care about Americans, esp. those of Christian or Jewish faith. It Is becoming harder and harder for him to hide it too.

  • A vote for Loretta Lynch is a vote for amnesty.

    Here’s what I fear: Mitch McConnell will make sure there are precisely five Republicans that vote for her, plus 46 Democrats to make the 51 she needs. He’ll give “permission” to a stratum of Senate Republicans to vote against her when they would really want to vote for her, for the purposes of pretense and outward consumption; a lot of them are up for reelection in 2016. Of course, then there are people who would never vote for her anyway, like Sessions, Vitter, Grassley.

  • Usually Much Calmer

    ” ‘It seems to be a reasonable way to marshal limited resources to deal with the problem’ of illegal immigration, she said. ”

    Resources are always limited. Anytime anyone promises you both guns AND butter you can count on getting neither.

    • Kenner

      ‘Marshal limited resources’ …Soon, whites will need to work two jobs just to fund our own replacement.

      • Usually Much Calmer

        They can take what we have but they can’t take who we are, which matters much more.

  • D.B. Cooper

    This double whammy is your next AG boys. She will be confirmed by a bunch of republicans YOU voted for, and WILL vote for again.

    • Don’t blame me. I sit at home on election day drinking mad dog 20/20 and watching Jerry Springer.

      • Whitetrashgang

        Now that’s something you can believe in.

      • Gee thanks . . . I think.

      • MooTieFighter

        That’s what the blacks were doing 364 other days of the week. Black man ran, so they did make it to the polls, that day. Probably the hardest thing most did that year.

  • Luca

    Lynch is Holder in drag and on steroids. She is basically ‘In your face’ and saying ” “I am an African-American woman, I dare you to not confirm me and face
    the media’s wrath as they portray you as sexist and racist. Go ahead,
    make my day”

    • Black Swan

      She has powerful forces behind her who have her back. Otherwise she’d be just one more unemployable AA black.

      The forces behind her control the media and it is their wrath the GOP fear, not her.

      • Luca

        One of those powerful forces is the media.

  • Dave West

    Department of Justice

    Now the Department of Social Justice, bellyaching, and irrational low IQ minority complaints.

  • Jo

    Hidden in her verbose answers was “I support Obama and Holder’s decisions.”

    • Black Swan

      “I will support whatever my paymasters and handlers want even if it’s against the Constitution and other laws.”

      Fixed.

      Lynch does not answer to Obama, although they both answer to the same forces.

  • Who Me?

    Just because you manage to drag your starving, parasitical carcass illegally across the border, does NOT entitle you to anything but a trip back across the river. (I’d gladly throw in a flogging for free, but that wouldn’t fly.)

  • All these negros, browns, and rainbows in the administration, when are we getting a zoophiliac?

  • libertarian1234

    Since blacks will be impacted unfavorably more so than any other group over amnesty, isn’t it odd that so many in the black leadership are pushing for it?

    My guess is that, like so many other things, these people have reasons they aren’t articulating and involve some kind of delusion that supporting unchecked immigration is what they think is a clever ruse to gain advantages for blacks.

    Is this just one more incompetent, hare-brained scheme that is going to wind up back-firing on them……like this “Hands up, don’t shoot” nonsense that only angers people and turns them against blacks in general?

    It has to involve more than just a ploy to get more Democrat voters, because they could well lose a good part of the black vote and many whites if black unemployment begins to soar.

    I mean, if they could comprehend that possibility.

    The only thing I really know for certain is that blacks can ‘t effectively manipulate anything without bringing the roof down on their own heads.

    • SentryattheGate

      The academic elites are working on ways to get the blacks to join forces with the browns; both against the Whites. Part of the plan is “anti-racist” education; gov’t. school K-12 brainwashing that Whites are to blame for black and brown problems.

    • MartelsGhost

      They are all in it for the greed and the banking families don’t care what color the faces of the overseers happen to be as long as the peasants don’t ever storm the gates.

      The black leaderships knows firsthand exactly how stupid their own people are, that stupidity is exactly what they’re counting on to keep them in power. Their constituents are far too easy to distract with drugs, bling and females. They aren’t capable of thought and will never be capable of forming an alternative style of banking or government so they represent the perfect mob to be let loose on the world in order to bring down any potential revolt from the ones most capable of finally breaking the banking stranglehold on our planet.

      In the ledger of power, a million morons who spend a dollar matter far more than one decent intelligent White who might spend a million dollars. That decent person might disagree with those in power after all………….

  • Bon, From the Land of Babble

    Loretta Lynch will carry out policies based on racial vengeance.

    In a speech last year lynch stated:

    Obama AG Nominee Lynch: Voter ID Laws were Passed by Racist Southerners, Must be Stopped”

    Ironically, at the end of the speech, Lynch ridiculously tries to tie her battle to stop voter ID laws to nelson mandela — the same nelson mandela that put into place strict voter ID laws in South Africa.

    Lynch shouldn’t even be considered for the position of AG of the U.S.

    But, instead of using the nuclear Bork option, the GOP will fold like a cheap tent.

    Duh. If you crack down on crime, of course you’re going to catch a lot of blacks in the net. If you punish cartels and prevent their formation, of course it’s going to have a disparate impact on Jews. If you try to stop religious violence, of course it’s going to have a disparate impact on Muslims. If you do everything you can to keep your car from being stolen, it’s going to have a disparate impact on Indio Hispanics.
