    President Barack Obama…the Statute of Liberty, the 14th Amendment is for the Benefit of U.S. Citizens and Legal Immigrants and not illegal/undocumented aliens and his or her Anchor Babies!

    YouTube:  President Obama's Speech in Tampa, Florida Published on Jun 22, 2012 by BarackObamadotcom

    "No matter who you are. No matter what you look like, no matter where you come from, no matter what your last name, this is a place where you can make it if you try. ….And whether our ancestors arrived on the Mayflower or were brought here on slave ships, whether they signed in at Ellis Island or they crossed the Rio Grande, their diversity has not only enriched this country, it helped build the greatest economic engine the world has ever known." by President Barack Obama

    Inscription on the Statue of Liberty: "Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame, With conquering limbs astride from land to land; Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame. "Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!" cries she With silent lips. "Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"

    …….and for your information President Barack Obama the essence, nature, and inscription on the Statute of Liberty reads or is specifically instituted for the benefit of U.S. citizens, U.S. born descendants of slavery, legal immigrants and not illegal/undocumented aliens and/or his or her anchor babies.


    Furthermore the 14th Amendment is being misused/misinterpreted by illegal immigration advocates to give automatic U.S. citizenship to the anchor babies of illegal/undocumented aliens.


    I commend you, Marvin Stewart, former Board Director of the Minuteman Project and other Minutemen, for your understanding of a most important function of all elected officials and the duty of elected officials to respect the Constitution and his or her oath of office when serving U.S. citizens and legal immigrants.


    Obama rails against Romney on business, immigration, President Obama calls Romney an 'outsourcing pioneer' from his time at Bain Capital and rebuts the Republican on immigration at a meeting of Latino officials.


    by Paul West and Kathleen Hennessey, Washington Bureau, June 22, 2012


    TAMPA, Fla. — President Obama pounded Republican challenger Mitt Romney over his past business practices and current immigration views during a swing Friday through the heart of the nation's largest battleground state.

    At a boisterous campaign rally near the west coast of Florida, the president reacted sharply to a report that Romney, as a private-equity investor in the 1990s, had owned companies that were at the forefront of the trend to send U.S. jobs overseas.

    "Today it was reported in the Washington Post that the companies his firm owned were 'pioneers' in the outsourcing of American jobs to places like China and India. Pioneers!" Obama said, referring to Bain Capital, which Romney co-founded. "We don't need an outsourcing pioneer in the Oval Office. We need a president who will fight for American jobs and American manufacturing. And that's what my plan will do."

    The Obama campaign has attempted to capitalize on politically unpopular elements of Romney's business background, such as the layoffs of workers at some companies Bain Capital took over, or the big profits reaped by Romney and his partners at firms they owned that later went bankrupt. But after an early flurry of attack ads, primarily aimed at white, working-class swing voters in states like Ohio, the campaign had shifted the focus of its commercials to Romney's record as governor of Massachusetts.

    On Friday, the president's campaign rushed out a Web video assailing what it called Romney's "career of shipping American jobs" to other countries. David Axelrod, Obama's senior campaign strategist, told reporters that the Post story was a "significant moment in the campaign."

    The Romney campaign called the Post report "fundamentally flawed," drawing a distinction between "outsourcing" and "offshoring." (The Obama campaign said neither would appeal to voters.)

    Obama's remarks to the crowd at Hillsborough Community College followed an earlier campaign-style appearance before NALEO, the National Assn. of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials, which is meeting at Disney World, in the heart of Florida's vote-rich Interstate 4 corridor. The visit was considered official White House business, so most of the trip was paid for by taxpayers.

    But many in the crowd of 1,000 reacted as if they were at an Obama rally, jumping to their feet three times to cheer and applaud. The president's remarks were designed, in large part, to rebut Romney's speech to the same group a day earlier, when he promised to pursue bipartisan action as president to overhaul the nation's dysfunctional immigration system.

    Reminding the Latino officials that Romney had assured them he's a man who keeps his promises, Obama fired back by recalling another Romney pledge, made during the Republican primaries: to veto the Dream Act, which would provide a path to citizenship for young illegal immigrants.

    "We should take him at his word," declared Obama, as a gasp ran through the crowd, which may not have expected a frontal presidential attack before an officially bipartisan, though heavily Democratic, audience. "I'm just saying. I believe that would be a tragic mistake. You do too."

    In the 2008 campaign, Obama pledged to act on a comprehensive immigration reform during his first year in office, but neither the president nor congressional Democrats have done so over the last 31/2 years.

    Romney has accused Obama of taking Latino votes for granted, and his campaign responded to the president's remarks by attacking the slow economic recovery that has hit Latinos unusually hard.

    "In 2008, candidate Obama promised NALEO he would create new jobs and end the housing crisis. Four years later, President Obama is back asking for more time. No election-year speech can cover up the president's job-killing policies that have led to 11% Hispanic unemployment and millions of Hispanics living in poverty," Romney spokeswoman Amanda Henneberg said in a statement.

    During his 28-minute speech, Obama sought to build on momentum from the executive action he took last week to protect young undocumented immigrants from deportation, a move that has sparked enthusiasm among Latino voters, polls show.

    The NALEO audience cheered his mention of the decision and jumped to its feet as he attacked Republicans for blocking passage of the Dream Act. Obama's administrative action is reversible by the next president (Romney has not said what he would do). It also fails to offer a route to citizenship, putting those who take advantage of it at potential risk of deportation if the policy is overturned by another president.

    Obama said he was "still waiting to work with anyone from either party who is committed to real reform," putting the onus on Congress, rather than himself, to act. He blamed "a small faction" in the Republican Party for Washington's stalemate over immigration, which he said had led to state laws "that cause more problems than they solve and are often doing more harm than good."

    The Supreme Court is expected to rule next week on Arizona's SB 1070, a tough immigration enforcement measure that has outraged many Latinos.

    The president attempted to use the NALEO event to forge a deeper emotional connection with Latino voters. He was introduced by a Latina, Labor Secretary Hilda Solis, who described him, in English and in Spanish, as someone who is "like us."

    Obama opened his remarks by reading a sentence in passable Spanish and sought to ally himself, on a personal level, with the immigrant experience. He said that, like millions of immigrants, his Kenyan father had been drawn "by the promise of America," though the senior Obama had been a graduate student and did not stay in the U.S. for long.

    "No matter who you are. No matter what you look like, no matter where you come from, no matter what your last name, this is a place where you can make it if you try," Obama said. "And whether our ancestors arrived on the Mayflower or were brought here on slave ships, whether they signed in at Ellis Island or they crossed the Rio Grande, their diversity has not only enriched this country, it helped build the greatest economic engine the world has ever known."

    "People don't come here looking for handouts," he added. "We are a nation of strivers and climbers and entrepreneurs, the hardest-working people on Earth. And nobody personifies these American values, these American traits, more than the Latino community."

    With good reason, I intend to vote against, demand the impeachment, recall and/or firing of President Barack Obama, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, Congresswoman Karen Bass, Congresswoman Maxine Waters, other members of the dysfunctional Congressional Black Clueless...AKA...the Congressional Black Caucus, 2nd District LA County Supervisor Mark Ridley Thomas, 8th District Councilman Bernard Parks, 10th District City Councilman Herb Wesson, other inept incumbents affiliated with the Democratic Party, inept Deputy Court Clerk Delores Odom Stocks, who signed a default court judgment without authority at my expense, and/or other disgraceful individuals who have contempt for me, contempt for the U.S. Constitution and who have negated his or her first responsibility to honor the oath of office to uphold the U.S. Constitution, the 14th Amendment, “Equal Justice and Protection Under the Law” in behalf of law abiding U.S. born descendants of slaves, such as my parents, Mr. Carl Steadman, Mr. John Thompson, and I, or many other law abiding individuals, egregiously violated by truly serious wrongs of government.

    It’s not too late for any of these individuals to redeem his or her character, or to truly make a constructive U.S. history first, to be removed from the “disgrace of the essence of what it means to be an elected official list”, the primary requirement of redemption is to uphold the “Principles to which this Nation Stands” to competently represent U.S. born descendants of slaves.

    There are other black men and women who have similar views like mine, but the majority of them, as it pertains to those in the ObamaCrat/Democratic Party/sellout (U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas) camp would be against or have contempt for the viewpoint expressed here, so much so, that an individual such as myself would be subjecting himself or herself to unearned disrespect or ridicule, a fight, physical injury, or even face being killed by one or more of the individuals in the black community who worship or praise no good President Barack Obama, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, Congresswoman Maxine Waters, other members of the deceitful Congressional Black Clueless….AKA the Congressional Black Caucus, 2nd District LA County Supervisor Mark Ridley Thomas, former 2nd District LA County Supervisor Yvonne Brentwood Burke, 10th District Los Angeles City Councilman Herb Wesson , 8th District Los Angeles City Councilman Bernard Parks, etc., etc., the Cochran Law firm, the NAACP, Court Clerk Delores Odom Stocks, Reverend Al Sharpton, Reverend Jesse Jackson, etc., etc.

    Unfortunately, so much perversion exists in the Black community, that anything destructive grows, and anything constructive is killed off, a street or park can be named in honor of a misfit, etc., etc., while individuals truly worthy of praise are ridiculed, disrespected, face being maimed or killed.


    If the misguided and false conversation or viewpoint of referring to every Caucasian as being a "Racist" or hating black people, the Republican Party or former President George Bush, former Governor Ronald Reagan, etc., etc., as being responsible for "keeping the black community" down and in poverty, behind the "eight ball", etc., etc., then nothing is discussed.

    Absolutely nothing is said or done about the true enemies to law abiding U.S. born blacks, these enemies being the mountain of treason that exists within the black community, a treasonous leadership and a truly irresponsible black middleclass, as it pertains to those who fit the description, that truly exists within the black community itself.

    "I graduated 2 years ago and I cannot find a steady job. "ObamaCare" only about Obama and he cares less about the people. We are worst than when he took the presidency... and people want to re- elected him? He is good with speeches, words, and promises, but weak in actions. I can not believe that he continues with the same promises that he did 4 years ago.. he did not have enough time already? Give the opportunity to someone else.

    "Zeituni Onyango's arrogance and contempt for America is breathtaking. She came illegally, lived in public housing for years, collected welfare, even got $51k in disability. And still she is angry at America. This case is beyond depressing. And it underlines what many eople see today: that in the old days, immigrants came to America to lend a hand to our growing nation. But far too many today merely come for a handout. And their arrogance and sense of entitlement is a symptom of the broken borders and lawlessness we have permitted, which lets anybody in, asks nothing of them, and gives charity to the lazy while so many deserving citizens are forgotten. And where is the multi-millionaire Obama in all this? His Aunt, whom he spoke lovingly about in his book, STILL does not work, STILL receives disability, still claims to have "no money".

    ... Zeituni Onyango should and must be deported like any other criminal illegal/undocumented alien.....but this won't happen because Barack Obama thinks more of illegal/undocumented aliens than in his duty to serve law abiding U.S. citizens and legal immigrants.

    Barack Obama and company will stoop to the level of a "gutter rat or rats" to win, because the only concern BO has is to win, no matter who is "kicked" to the curb and beyond by BO and the Obama Administration uses, to get there.
    Barack Obama and his administation, should be using this platform to shed light on what he can do better than any other candidate as President to improve the economy...but instead BO and company choose to use unwarranted character assassination to promote his re-election.
