Stalin lives


The mask is off, the cover blown. Josef "Barack" Stalin, the former star hope-and-change salesman, stands revealed as the political bandit he always has been. Constitution? He don't have to show you no stinkin' Constitution.

He announced yesterday: "Over the next few months, eligible individuals who do not present a risk to national security or public safety will be able to request temporary relief from deportation proceedings and apply for work authorization.” Says who? Says him. 

Arrogance drips from every word. "Temporary"? Who believes that? "Relief" -- from the laws of the United States. Who will decide which "eligible individuals" present no risk? Probably a blanket authorization from Janet Napolitano. They're young, haven't had much time to get into trouble yet. ¡No problemo!


"Apply for work authorization"? Does that mean some of them will be turned down? Hah. We have an official unemployment rate of 8 percent and change, a real unemployment rate of more like 15 percent (after a certain period of being out of work, they're just not counted anymore -- nonpersons). Why not flood the zone with 800,000 low-wage illegals/Barack-says-they're-legals?

The captive mainstream media will try to position J.B. Stalin's unilateral amnesty as just another campaign strategy, like posing for the photographers while eating pierogi in Chicago's Polish neighborhood. No. It's not just pandering to the ever-growing illegal voter population, either. It's his "I am the law" statement, in a direct line of descent from the famous boss of Jersey City, Frank Hague.

J.B. Stalin no longer bothers with the surreptitious political ju-jitsu strategies of the Rules for Radicals. He's the rule for radicals.

If I had a son, he'd look like Obama.

Don't count on the Republicans to turn him inside out on this affront to the tattered remains of our Republic. Oh, sure, they'll moan a little, maybe indulge in some meaningless threats of lawsuits but the truth is they will counter-pander. Our Supreme Soviet, I mean, Congress treads lightly on immigration. You might not get the vote (legal or illegal) of a Hispanic ... but hey, you never know.

If the Republicans were genuinely an opposition party, their flag bearer would have used this occasion of J.B. Stalin's open defiance of law and precedent, his siding with his notion of elevated lawbreakers, to blast a verbal hole in the White House wall rat. Forget it. Romney's response was, "An executive order is of course just a short-term matter -- it can be reversed by subsequent presidents. I'd like to see legislation that deals with this issue." He's a law-and-order man. Amnesty should come about by law.

Yes, I'd vote for the Republican candidate in November even if the GOP nominated a worm (maybe they have). There is bad politics, and there is Stalinism; bad politics is the necessary choice this time around. Will any of us live to see a third option?
