It´s finally Gutierrez´s time
Crain´s Chicago Business, by Greg Hinz

Original Article

Posted By:brianod1, 11/18/2012 12:05:20 PM

Rep. Luis Gutierrez had just returned from taping a segment on “The O´Reilly Factor,” forming half of an ideological odd couple with Bill O´Reilly if there ever was one. He was preparing a House floor speech declaring, “The Republican Party really met Latinos on Election Day.” And he was telling me on the phone that, when it´s all over, “Chicago is going to see a lot more of Luis Gutierrez.” It´s that kind of moment for the Chicago Democrat. For nearly two decades, the onetime Northwest Side alderman has been an oft-lonely voice in the Washington wilderness on immigration reform.

Comments:
I share as an fyi - I have no heart to argue with the concept of reform. My brain, which might argue, feels the country is already lost - not on this particular issue, but on so many others.

It´s been his time for eight years, his net worth has gone up 3636% since 2004. It´s the Chicago way.

Bill O´Reilly is one of the LARGEST, goodness...how to express this and not upset Miss LDot or her monitors....? Bill O´Reilly is the "South end" of a "North bound" horse. ANYONE who watches/listens to his blovations on FOX needs their heads examined. Gutierrez, on the other hand, is what you scrape off the bottom of your shoe after you want through ANY pasture.....

Luis has been a pain in the backside for as long as I can remember. And now, oddly enough, he´s starting to sound reasonable. Who changed? Me or Luis? I have to think about this.

“You learn English, you pay taxes and you pay a fine. We´ve got to reduce the lines,” he says. But he adds immediately: “We need to listen to Republicans. We cannot say simply that we won the election. No matter how wonderful my plan is, there aren´t enough Democratic votes” in the GOP-controlled House.

Ergo, he says, “60 percent of the bill will be about (border) enforcement, enforcement, enforcement, so we never have to go through this again. You want (employer) e-verify. I´ll give you e-verify. We´re going to do things like secure our borders.”

My goodness. He´s starting to make sense!!

This guy is a highly partisan liberal Democrat. He knows that if the liberal Democrats can get the stupid party to go along with their amnesty plan, that eventually the stupid party will be handing them many millions of new socialist oriented foreign born voters, and will be essentially committing long-term political suicide.

Do you really think that the liberal Democrats would always be pushing their amnesty plans if they were not sure that only a very small percentage of the legalized aliens, when they receive US voting rights in the years ahead, would have an epiphany and vote for conservative Republicans?

Most illegal aliens are poor people who are generally uneducated, earn low wages and have big families. The stupid party will never be able to out pander the liberal Democrats in offering new benefits, rights, and services that will be promised to secure the votes of the vast majority of that population group when the time comes. That´s just common sense!

They aren´t saying amnesty, and we shouldn´t allow amnesty.
No one goes to the front of the line.

So, it´s a path to legalization.

I say we offer to have the legal quota increased to accommodate the new immigrants, and include anyone from other countries too (China, Russia, Australia, Ireland, etc...)

The fine, I say it´s what the coyotes charge ($3000-5000 per person), and call it an application fee, which will help pay for the program.

Guiterrez, like the rest of the Progressive Caucus, is a member of Democratic Socialists of America (a branch of Socialist International) which operates under the umbrella of the Democrat Party. They put the -ic on because of them.. to look American. These people are greedy, single-minded, corruption-accepting bumps on the behind of the Donkey.. which has, under Ozero, become its head.

A search of all islands in the Andaman and Nicobar archipelago has drawn a naught, so far as the missing Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 is concerned, officials of the Andaman and Nicobar Command (ANC) confirmed on Saturday evening. Two Indian Navy ships, along with those from other nations, are continuing their search at the location pointed out by Malaysian authorities but nothing has been spotted on the water. Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 disappeared on March 8, 2014 on the way to Beijing from Kuala Lumpur. "There has been no oil slick, no flotsam or a sonar ping to indicate that the jetliner crashed anywhere

Former Mayor Richard M. Daley says he doesn’t remember much about the planning of Millennium Park, his wildly over-budget project that has become one of Chicago’s civic treasures. The sprawling downtown park, with its gleaming stainless-steel sculpture known as “The Bean,” is seen as one of his crowning achievements. Daley, though, shrugs it off. N

With New York City mayoral hopeful Bill de Blasio waiting to speak and an audience of a few thousand in Brooklyn´s Cadman plaza waving signs and flags, dancing, and chanting "Si se puede," 23-year-old Pakistani immigrant Hina Naveed, a student from Staten Island, didn´t miss her moment. She captured the identity and energy of the crowd in one quick phrase: "Being undocumented sucks!" The nationwide March for Immigrant Dignity and Respect was the latest mobilization for comprehensive immigration reform.

CTA chairman’s name on letter
vouching for notorious gang leader

Battling gang violence has been one of Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s top priorities. But one of Emanuel’s top appointees, CTA Chairman Terry Peterson, appears to have taken a different tack in the mid-1990s: Lobbying for the early release of the imprisoned leader of the Gangster Disciples — one of the largest and deadliest street gangs in Chicago, the Better Government Association has learned.

As if the city doesn´t have enough problems with crime, budget deficits, and school cuts and closings, Mayor Emanuel has decided to barrel headfirst into the South Loop real estate market—with at least $55 million of your property tax funds. The key moment came at the July 24 City Council meeting, when he hammered through an ordinance giving the city eminent domain authority to buy property at Indiana and Cermak. He plans to have a hotel built there. A couple days later, the Metropolitan Pier and Exposition Authority—the city-state agency that oversees Navy Pier and McCormick Place

Amid a spate of incursions by China in Ladakh, its troops are also resorting to tactics like preventing Indian Army from patrolling posts in this sector along the border which was well within India´s territory. In what is being described as an aggressive approach by China, the tactics have come to the fore in the wake of yet another incident last week when Indian troops launched its patrol "Tiranga" from Trade Junction area in north of Ladakh for two posts located 14 km up in the higher reaches along the line of actual control (LAC).

Using anti-science exuberance, for the last few days, the media have pom-pommed someone´s ethereal projection that the economy had created 200,000 or so jobs in July. The fact that our media would consider 200,000 jobs (which hardly keeps up with population growth) worthy of pom-poms is grotesque enough. Even more appalling is spinning manufactured positive news-cycles for President Obama based on proven nonsense like the ADP´s jobs projections.

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

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

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

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a
