The GOP’s Hispanic Opportunity
National Review Online, by Rachel Campos-Duffy

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 11/14/2012 3:45:23 PM

The Republican establishment, consultants, and talking heads should all just take a deep breath. Yes, we have a serious problem with Hispanics. It’s a problem conservative Hispanics have been trying to tell the GOP leadership about for many years with little or no response or action. But the quick-fix immigration solutions now being offered by the likes of Charles Krauthammer and other establishment-elites figures are an over-correction, do not actually address the root of the problem, and, frankly, may even accelerate our losses in the crucial Hispanic demographic.

Comments:
It is depressing and discouraging to see how many of us are willing to match up with the Dem caricature of conservative Republicans. We have to soften our words and actions. We can´t keep referring to all Hispanics as lawbreakers and therefore unwelcome in our world. The lawbreakers are the illegals. The legal Hispanics have views that are much closer to our own than many might think. We can reform immigration at the same time we are calming our rhetoric and extending our hand to the legal voters.

Hispanics vote dem for the same reason blacks and other minorities do.They want free things.I don´t think legal immigrants give a rats behind about immigration.Rush discussed this at length the other day.

I had this debate today. I pointed out that amnesty has never helped a GOP candidate. In Fact, the case could be made that amnesty for illegals will guarantee that minority groups will never vote republican again. I was told the GOP should just abandon social issues. I simply replied that is exactly what the Democrats want us to do, which means the GOP should engage on social issues across the board. With Lawyers. In Court. Game On.

I agree that amnesty is not the big issue with legal Hispanic voters. But, they care very much that our words seem to demean and disrespect them. We have to do a better job of showing that our policies are good for them.

#1 I disagree with your citing that the Hispanic people are people who belong to the "gimmee" types. I grew up with them in California, I studied with them, worked beside them, ran track and crosscountry with them, ate at their tables, prayed with them in church...you get the picture. They are angry at the "Pendejos" who ghetto´d them. Yes english should be the national language but all my friends spoke english well. If you have ever been in the Netherlands, most of all people ...children too, speak at least 3 languages, some as many as six. They do have an official language...and they as we print it and teach it. They also teach other languages too. My point, hispanics come here to work. Their children know who their fathers are and sit at table with them. By the way, the parish I belonged to had masses in spanish. Many english only also attended. To learn!!!
Later on why the gangs. Over the L. quota.

I know there many "gimees" that are here; but for me in our older neighborhood that many hispanics can afford, they´re law abiding, hard working people who want better for their families. Don´t have a problem with that AT ALL.

I grew up with Hispanics too. Folks, there evidently ARE a good number of "gimmes" cuz we now have proof at the ballot box. Hey, even my Mexican girlfriends in West Texas say so. If most are really really that mad about being classified that way, then where are they? Why aren´t they standing up publicly, forming organizations to help white conservatives fight the stereotypes? When they are willing to incur the wrath of the LaRaza types in their neighborhoods to stand up for the values they say they believe in, I will believe them.

A fool´s errand. The GOP needs small government supporters, not Bush Big Government social conservatives. Central Americans will not vote GOP because of race, even if the GOP tries to outdo the Free Stuff party. Amnesty will not buy the GOP a single Mexican vote. The Democrats have been totally successful in dividing America into ethnic, racial, and sex-based identity groups. The solution is to split the country.

The stupid party (the Republicans) would be committing long-term political suicide by supporting liberal Democrat devised amnesty programs for the 12-20 million illegal aliens here now, that gives them a permanent immigration status and that puts them on "a path to citizenship" that is liberal Democrat code for eventually granting them US voting rights. Do doing that the stupid party (the Republicans) would be handing the liberal Democrats many millions of new foreign born socialist oriented voters in the years ahead. Once that happened the stupid party (the Republicans) would never again have enough votes to win future national elections.

This author is 100% correct about the leftist community organizing that has been underway now for a long time on the ground in Hispanic-American and immigrant communities. The stupid party (the Republicans) have no such ground game.

The highly partisan liberal Democrats would never be supporting such amnesty programs if they believed that more then a very small percentage of legalized aliens would ever have an epifinany and vote for conservative Republicans, that´s just not going to happen.

I have a question. If many of us believe there was some kind of fraud committed last week at the polls that caused us to lose, doesn´t that mean we probably actually won? If that´s true, then could it be our message did get through to a greater number of voters this time? Just wondering.

Most are hard-working, want to raise their families and be good citizens.
Most have been conditioned to distrust Republicans who want to deport them, to isolate them, etc...

Not even Obama says they should be allowed to advance to the front of the line which rules out amnesty.
Set up a path to legalization, and increasing the legal quota is the way to do it.
Have them sign up, register, pay a non-refundable application fee of $3000-5000 each, and get processed just like everyone else.
But, don´t just limit this increase in legal quota to the current illegals in the U.S., but expand this to allow for Irish, Germans, Chinese, India, Vietnam, Russia, etc...

Add a whole new wave of immigrants in a legal manner looking to achieve the American Dream.

Here´s a lesson in online security: Passwords are important. They keep your information safe. Crucially, they also prevent other people from impersonating you. Unfortunately, one of The Switch´s readers learned that the hard way. On a story explaining how the Heartbleed bug could slow down the Internet, a commenter scoffed at the "Heartbleed thingamajig," arguing that the Internet´s handwringing over security was mostly overwrought: I couldn´t give a flying fig about the Heartbleed thingamajig. Two years already the thing has been running loose ... and not a word of someone crying over its damage. Say ... does anyone really know its origin?

Proponents of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) insist that the law will extend health insurance to millions, expand access to health care, and improve Americans’ overall health. But, as the New York Times recently reported, at least 20 percent of the new enrollees have not paid their premiums. They therefore do not really have insurance. But even for those enrollees paying premiums, having health insurance is not the same thing as getting good health care, or any health care. In fact, it doesn’t matter how many Americans obtain insurance under the ACA. Most will have difficulty finding a physician. Many Americans

INDIANAPOLIS | A Portage airman was among the Hoosier troops stationed in Germany that Gov. Mike Pence met Monday on the first stop of his jobs mission to Indiana´s largest European trading partner. Lt. Benjamin DeLaCruz, a 2007 Portage High School graduate, helped show the Republican governor and first lady Karen Pence around the sprawling Ramstein Air Base and participated in a discussion with the governor about the role of U.S. forces in Europe. "On behalf of the men and women serving overseas, I would like to thank Gov. Pence for visiting Ramstein today," DeLaCruz said in a statement released by the

Cults In Our Midst: Patty Hearst

The Federalist, by Stella Morabito    Original Article

Exactly forty years ago Patricia Hearst stunned the nation when she turned up as a bank robber, a mere two months after she was kidnapped by the violent cult that called itself “The Symbionese Liberation Army.” Her astonishing transformation was documented by bank cameras on April 15, 1974. There she was — granddaughter of William Randolph “Citizen Kane” Hearst — wielding a sawed-off assault rifle and terrorizing people in a bank. She had recently announced in a taped SLA communique that she had voluntarily joined the SLA in its fight against the “fascist” United States. She took the nom de

Chevron, Dole cases expose lawyer corruption

A few years ago, the corruption convictions of several prominent plaintiffs´ lawyers put a spotlight on dishonesty in American civil courts. Now the sleaze has burst back into the news with cases involving Chevron and Dole Food Co., this time with an international twist. Last month, a federal court in Manhattan found that a U.S. plaintiffs´ lawyer had masterminded a multibillion dollar fraud and extortion scheme against Chevron in Ecuador. Three days later, a California appellate court affirmed the dismissal of a lawsuit against Dole as a "fraud on the court" perpetrated by U.S. and Nicaraguan plaintiffs´ lawyers. These rulings are welcome

NFL players have Most Valuable Player awards. Major League Baseball players strive for Cy Youngs and Gold Gloves. For journalists, it´s the Pulitzer. Every year, when Pulitzers are announced, most of them are awarded to big corporate media outlets with huge staffs and budgets devoted specifically to the contest. But not always. On Monday, David Philipps, an investigative reporter for the Colorado Springs Gazette, claimed a Pulitzer for his three-day series, Other Than Honorable. Philipps exposed the shameful treatment of members of the U.S. military, many of them wounded combat veterans, in the drawdown of American military forces. Too often,

Another sob story in the left-wing media about Dzhokhar Tsarnaev? Yesterday it was the turn of The New York Times, under the headline, “Marathon Bombing Suspect Waits in Isolation.” Needless to say, the ACLU is up in arms. Boo-hoo-hoo. And if he were in general population, rest assured the headline would have been, “Marathon Bombing Suspect Waits in Fear of his Life.” Needless to say, the ACLU would be up in arms. This one was perfectly timed — on the first anniversary of the Joker placing one of his kettle bombs in front of little Martin Richard, who had moments

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you
