Whatever Kaus writes, I predicted years ago that the rise of the TPers would make amnesty more likely. Their leaders support amnesty (in one form or other), they're easily distracted, and they have "other issues". The proof is in the pudding: it would have been easy to block DACA or the current amnesty push, yet that didn't happen. The Senate bill has proceeded largely unopposed. In case anyone wants to do something effective, I've got various campaigns designed to discredit amnesty fans. Simply joining NumbersUSA and sending FAXes is necessary, but it probably won't be enough this time.
Weren't the TP "patriots" supposed to stop things like this? After all, they've presented themselves as the One And Only True Opposition to things like this, calling anyone who disagrees Commies and the like. Yet - on the TP watch - O passed amnesty. On two prior occasions, TPers and major r/w bloggers (I don't think I checked this site) largely ignored pushes for the DA. If you're upset about today's amnesty, blame those who could have stopped it but didn't. (P.S. smearing me for pointing that out isn't going to help, it's just going to make things like what happened today more likely.)
Actually, he hasn't released his birth certificate. What he's done is released a *picture* of what he says is his *certification*. An image search will show what a *certificate* looked like. And, outside the Obama camp, the only people who claim to have seen the certification are two non-expert employees of an organization that covered for Obama on HCR (by falsely stating that illegal aliens wouldn't be able to obtain coverage). And, the state of HI admits that they haven't authenticated the picture on Obama's site. To help make that clearer go into court where a judge wants to see your Form 3000-A and instead show him a picture of your Form 3000-B on your laptop. He'll point out that for all he knows you could have modified the picture, plus it's the wrong form. He might be willing to accept it in lieu of the actual form, but that would require the issuing agency to authenticate it, which hasn't happened in this case. This issue is basically an intelligence and integrity test, with many failing (in some cases intentionally).

The last time I left a comment here was on this issue, and Nyhan deleted it. So, he'll probably do the same for this comment since the CNN article he links contains three lies about basic, indisputable, easy-to-understand facts: http://24ahead.com/n/10147 Nyhan would have you believe an article that not only contains three fundamental lies but that can't even get the name of a document right.

The English version will probably be as much a sham as the American version. Will the English turn out to be as gullible as a few hundred thousand Americans have shown themselves to be? For my extensive coverage of their movement - such as who's really pulling their strings - see: 24ahead.com/s/tea-parties Like the U.S. version, the English version will probably ignore immigration matters. If you're concerned about massive immigration into England you probably shouldn't support this new group.
