It's clear no matter what I say, the progressive idiot squad is going to demean it, because that's what they do. It's also clear, as has happened in the past, when the "proof" of peoples' comments are posted, usually in a long form legal document or statistical report, the same morons demanding the proof are simply too dense to comprehend it, and too lazy to read it.
SO, pipedream ... if you don't trust my word on the trafficking law's "exceptional circumstances" clause, or that Obama could, if he chose to, be using this in the current border mess, maybe you'll accept the word of one of the authors of this law, Sen. Dianne Feinstein, who's also a democrat:
http://blog.sfgate.com/nov05election/2014/07/...
[Feinstein says the law has an “exceptional circumstances” loophole that could give the administration more flexibility to remove children.
She told Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson, who wants more flexibility to deport, that the law contains a provision for “exceptional circumstances” that could provide the administration the authority it wants without changing the law.
She argued that “exceptional circumstances” could be triggered by large numbers coming in.]
Hmmmm .... seems to back up my statement, and explain why and how Obama could put this to use considering the statements made by this administration that indeed these are children, and indeed they are coming over in large numbers.
AND, here is a link to the law, in all it's legal splendor, if you care to parve through it for more "proof":
http://www.state.gov/j/tip/laws/113178.htm
I'm sure this won't appease you either, as you'll demand I waste my time paging through this ridiculously long document to find the exact wording that backs Sen. Feinstein's assertions, but at that I say kiss my ass. I'm done trying to squeeze intelligence out of progressive concrete block.
You're on your own here from here on out, pole smoker. Good luck!

Are you really asking the dumbest rock in the pile if they believe something??? They don't even know what they actually don't believe because they can't comprehend anything except STFU. Oh wait, that was a rhetorical question wasn't it??? Let's see if pippy little boy knows what that word means.

The IRS scrutinized applications for tax exempt status on both sides and went after law breaking tax cheats, most of whom were found to be conservative groups seeking tax exempt status. That is well documented.

The ONLY thing you've proven is that brain-dead fools like yourself are still capable of posting garbage on the web. We can all sit here and try to urge you to see what every other semi-educated being understands but the true litmus test will be in the polls this fall. There won't be enough dead voters to keep the existing progressives in office. Why do you think all of the moderate Dems keep moving as far away as possible from Obuma in hopes their constituents won't bury them for what they've allowed their president to get away with?! Get off the slimy pole you dance on for bus fare and prepare to be in a much smaller group of morons. Support whatever article curls your weak backbone chump, it'll be hard to deny reality when pussies like you are eliminated.
Maybe we'll get lucky and they'll all waste themselves while in a fit of utter depression ....knowing that the dream of collectivism is dying in America.

Communism is not a good replacement for individual freedom. The extremists are those who seek to rule individuals rather than let individuals rule themselves. Grow up and use the ears and eyes that God gave you!

Taken from the liberals''Idiots Guide To Debating When You're Too Lazy To Work' handbook:
Chapter One: Call them racists.

Simple!
BTW: Don't pat yourself on the back too hard on your theory that everyone gives Obama all that credit. I don't refer to him as the "Celebrity-In-Chief" because I think he's actually working on legislation! I refer to him as that because I know exactly why he was plopped in as the token figurehead for the neo-progressive movement - Chapter One of the Liberal idiot's guide is your first clue.
The fact there's still dopes naive enough to think that Obama's stash is going to pay their rent - and those droolers reside on YOUR side of the political/social fence - should give you reason to look in the mirror and stop disrespecting those of us who've warned about this smoke and mirrors administration from the start.
The MAMH ALSO single-handedly "gave away" money to tens of millions to buy votes- all right under the noses of every man, woman, and child- except those, of course, that were "smart" enough to just "feel" the deception from the start.

So much so that he won not ONE, but TWO elections! The MAMH even made the Tea Party himself, brainwashing that group into self destruction.

What i said was i will bang that boneyass of tom2v until he squeals like a pig, if, and only if, you sit in your special chair and hold the camera with both hands.
The last time i banged him you only held the camera with one hand and the video was herky jerky. There is more to the story!

Hadn't heard that one, but speaking of "feeling smart", I have heard one of your own claim the island of Guam would tip over due to overpopulation, and I also recall hearing once or twice right from the horse's MAMH that if you like your health plan you can keep it.

Actually, what is well documented is that you have neither comprehension skills, a grasp of the obvious, OR any knowledge of what is actually going on in this country. No surprise there, anyone who gives one group a total pass no matter what they do while blaming the other group entirely for everything from the weather to the fact you pee your britches daily is bound to be someone who can't fathom life as it happens. You must be terribly disappointed daily. I feel sorry for you and your inadequacies.

Which is why there is so much buyer's remorse. As for the Tea Party, the reports of its death have been greatly exaggerated. However, please, by all means, keep patting him on the back. He is a failure and those of you who blindly support whatever he does will be taken down with him.
