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.

Obama to free hundreds of drug

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

The Citizens Commission on Benghazi, a self-selected group of former top military officers, CIA insiders and think-tankers, declared Tuesday in Washington that a seven-month review of the deadly 2012 terrorist attack has determined that it could have been prevented – if the U.S. hadn´t been helping to arm al-Qaeda militias throughout Libya a year earlier. ´The United States switched sides in the war on terror with what we did in Libya, knowingly facilitating the provision of weapons to known al-Qaeda militias and figures,´ Clare Lopez, a member of the commission and a former CIA officer, told MailOnline.

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Michelle Obama:

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

Public Trust: Sixty-one percent polled say President Obama lies "some of the time" or "most of the time" on matters of national importance. Americans have to ask: Why do we let him get away with it? It´s no surprise that a Fox News poll of 1,012 registered voters last week found immense distrust of a president whose main domestic initiative was based on a lie. The shock is that the same poll found his disapproval level down to its lowest since last fall. Asked, "How often do you think Barack Obama lies to the country on important matters?" 37% replied "most of

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning
