As further proof, as if we needed any, of just how upside down things have become in this country over the course of the last eight years during the reign of Barry the first, as well as something that can, I think, be considered as another pretty good indicator of why we now have a President-elect Trump instead of a President-elect Hitlery, is the fact that word now comes to us that the Denver County’s sheriff office has been slapped with a fine by Barry’s Department of Justice (DOJ) simply because it refused to hire…wait for it…non-citizens as deputies. Now is that not the most insane thing you have ever heard? Even when taking into consideration all that has now taken place under our ‘Dear Beloved Leader’, Barack Hussein Obama, this has to rank pretty high up on the list of the lunatic actions taken by our soon to be EX-president. It seems nonsensical that citizenship would not be a requirement for a job in law enforcement.
So, how can this be, you might ask. Well, as has so often been said over the course of the last eight years, truth is stranger than fiction. It seems that from the beginning of 2015 through this past March, the Denver Sheriff Department went on what was described as a major hiring binge, adding more than 200 new deputies. But those jobs ended up only going to citizens, because the department made citizenship a stated requirement on the job application. Imagine that! The department admitted as much in a new settlement with the U.S. government, which now requires that it pay a $10,000 fine. But it doesn’t stop there, the department will also have to comb through all of its job applications from the past two years, identifying illegal immigrants who were excluded from the hiring process, receive training from the DOJ and be forced to have their hiring policies reviewed by an attorney in the Civil Rights Division.
And it was some DOJ imbecile by the name of Vanita Gupta, who has the fancy title of ‘Principal Deputy Assistant Attorney General’, who said in a recent statement: “Eliminating this unlawful citizenship requirement will help ensure that the Denver Sheriff Department hires the best and most qualified individuals to protect and serve.” And it was this same moron who went on to say, “The entire community will benefit from these reforms.” Apparently, under the Immigration and Nationality Act, employers are required to give equal treatment to non-citizens with valid work permits, unless state, local, or federal law explicitly requires certain jobs be open only to citizens. More than 40 U.S. states currently have laws that in some capacity restrict non-citizens from being police, but Colorado is not one of them. Such is the level of insanity that has reigned supreme during the tenure of Barry “Almighty”.
And while the department says it was simply unaware that limiting employment to citizens was a violation of federal law, that excuse apparently didn’t hold much water with the DOJ. Because it was in a report released last October that the Department of Justice blasted citizenship requirements for officers as a “barrier” to creating more racially diverse police forces. This report said, “While Federal law allows law enforcement agencies to impose a citizenship requirement where it is authorized by state or local law, this requirement may prevent a considerable number of racial and ethnic minorities – many of whom have valuable foreign language skills – from being hired by law enforcement agencies.” Yup, by golly, that’s what we need and what’s most important when it comes to the safety of our communities, a “more racially diverse police force.” It’s like every morning I wake up in the damn ‘Twilight Zone.”
That the Denver Sheriff’s Department, or any police department for that matter, can be fined by our ‘all knowing and all seeing’ federal government for not allowing non-citizens to apply to be a member of law enforcement is just plain nuts. It ranks right up there with allowing those who are citizens of this country, even if here illegally, to be able to take advantage of in-state college tuition. Maybe I’m over simplifying things here, but who in their right mind thinks it’s a good idea that someone who is not a citizen of this country should have any business whatsoever being permitted to have any position in law enforcement? Now I realize that in this the ‘Age of Obama” that the police, much like the military, have become something to be treated more like a Petri Dish for social experimentation than what they are intended to be. But is that really the direction in which most Americans want us to be going? Somehow I just don’t think so.
Governor John Hickenlooper, a Democrat, has just about destroyed the once great state of Colorado. There's a ban on smoking cigarettes, but smoking pot is okay. Three-year-olds can sit a room full of Marijuana smoke and even eat a pot brownie now and then. Five year olds have to learn the difference between a penis and a vagina in their kindergarten classes, but not about number and letters. A seven year old asthmatic can't be around cigarette smoke, but pot smoke apparently doesn't bother their fragile little lungs. There are hundreds of two bedroom homes that house between two and five illegal families. They all have the same Social Security number and many have the same name. All of them are collecting Social Security checks under their identical numbers. Of course, attorneys continue to fight for their Social Security rights because the government pays $5,000 to the attorney whenever these individuals are granted their Social Security.
Yup, that all sounds pretty good to me, NOT! So I guess we’re all just supposed to let lawlessness, child endangerment, and the hiring of illegals as deputies to take place and if we object we’re considered as what, racists? So can Colorado now be considered to have been turned into a regular little Democrat utopia? But I do have a question, will these illegal immigrant Deputies be allowed to carry a weapon? And if so, how freaking nuts is that? And these days I can’t help but wonder if everybody in Colorado, to one degree or another, isn’t a pothead which, I guess, would help to explain how it’s become such a pretty reliable blue state, at least in presidential politics. Maybe more conservatives should move there and change the demographics. Though they may be hard pressed to get any decent law abiding citizens to move there. I feel sorry for the ones already living under such a horrible administration.
Ya know when Barry first came into office, he did so as a man on a mission, and he made every American aware of what that mission was. It was to “fundamentally transform” the United States of America. And it would be difficult to argue, as he prepares himself to finally leave office, that he hasn’t made some pretty significant progress in that endeavor. Even with the Republicans in control of the House since 2010 and both the House and the Senate since 2014. Much to the chagrin, with a great deal of disappointment, of those who love this country. We’ve been made to watch our country being destroyed right before our eyes while those we elected to prevent it did little more than to watch from the sidelines while sitting on their hands. So feeling like we were left with no alternative we voted for President-elect Donald Trump and now we wait to see if he’ll make good on the promise he made to, “Make America Great Again!”
