Ex-Romney backer
pushes immigration reform

United Press International, by Staff

Washington - A top Latino Republican strategist had harsh words for U.S. GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney and joined other conservatives calling for immigration reform. Carlos Gutierrez, who led Romney´s Latino outreach during the presidential campaign, told CNN´s "State of the Union" he was "shocked" Romney last week blamed his overwhelming electoral loss on "gifts" U.S. President Barack Obama gave key groups, especially blacks, Latinos and young people. "(Snip)I think we lost the election because the far right of this party has taken the party to a place that it doesn´t belong.

Comments:
And after he drops this bomb, he goes on to say he doesn´t know whether Romney realized how his remark about Obama´s gifts to special interest groups would affect the Latino vote. This guy was out there on CNN, going after Romney and cited as though he was a major player in Romney´s campaign. He was an "adviser", of which I expect there were many, and his primary loyalty is to his Latino constituency. And to immigration reform. And to himself. Sounds as though he has political aspirations of his own.

BS.

I´m all for reform. Issue how ever many visas and green cards as we think we need in a timely fashion. If that´s 1 million per month or whatever that number happens to be. Everyone else...enforce the law. No one has anything against immigrants, it´s the look the other way lawlessness that people can´t stand.

I would like to humbly suggest a Grand Compromise for the Grand Old Party. Immigrants who are here illegally plead guilty to a misdemeanor of crossing the border illegally, they can have no public assistance in any form for two years, then if they have a clean record and pay taxes, they will be declared to have paid their debt to society and will be given "legal status" and can have driver´s license (requiring insurance), they can hold jobs (provided they pay all the taxes) but can not vote (only lawfully admitted citizens can vote).

I do not care if he was only one of many "advisors." We have so many of these characters who end up backstabbing us. I´m convinced that this is an organized effort to divide and destroy from within. Another reason the party finds itself where it is today...

Wow - so this gentleman is shocked that Romney´s comments about gifts contributed to his losses and may have offended minorities. While it may not sound politically correct - many truths have been spoken by Mr. Romney. While it may not have been the only reason - it was a significant one. Since early this year when Mr. Obama started evolving - supports gay marriage, by passed the Congress and essentially granted amnesty to young illegals, guaranteed contraception free of charge to young women and used this to snare or shore up his support among these various groups - they were gifts. Keith Koffler has an excellent article on his site about Mars - everyone should read it. The armchair quarterbacking is incredible.

1. Amnesty is not reform. Reform is not amnesty. Clear enough?
2. Reform? OK, here it is -- legal applicants go through a clear, streamlined, proper screening; offer something [we have a surfeit of deadbeat takers] of value [skills, a record of achievement]; no extended family; recognize there´s no such thing as birthright citizenship, particularly as a reward for fraudulent entry; We the citizens get to pick who comes in. And there´s a probationary period. Maybe 10 years? Cross the line somehow? Break the law? All the green-card, steps toward naturalization, etc. are voided. Out you go. See Point 3 for forfeiture. What´s that? Tough.
3. Here illegally? See ya. 100% forfeiture of property here [keep the clothes on your back and a change of undies]. That´ll help address the insane costs illegals have created for honest, law-abiding citizens.
4. We didn´t invite you. We´re doing you one of the biggest favors possible in this life. Keep your nose clean, or you´ll learn some things that: a. you never suspected; and b. you never wanted.

There you go. It´s not complicated, really. Only summoning the will to do what´s right seems hard to achieve, and nearly impossible for politicians.

NEW YORK - Last week´s Heartbleed Internet bug revealed a startling fact. The software protecting banks, email, social media and government is maintained by only a few people. They´re all volunteers. And only one does it as a full-time job. Their labor of love is OpenSSL, a free program that secures a lot of online communication. And it was a tiny coding slip-up two years ago that caused the Heartbleed bug, a hole that allows attackers to peer into computers. The bug forced emergency changes last week at major websites like Facebook (FB, Fortune 500), Google (GOOG, Fortune 500) and Yahoo (YHOO,

People who have accounts on the enrollment website for President Barack Obama´s signature health care law are being told to change their passwords following an administration-wide review of the government´s vulnerability to the confounding Heartbleed Internet security flaw. Senior administration officials said there is no indication that the HealthCare.gov site has been compromised and the action is being taken out of an abundance of caution. The government´s Heartbleed review is ongoing, the officials said, and users of other websites may also be told to change their passwords in the coming days, including those with accounts on the popular

Her husband, 91-year-old Kenneth Felumlee, died the next morning. The couple´s eight children say the two had been inseparable since meeting as teenagers, once sharing the bottom of a bunk bed on a ferry rather than sleeping one night apart(Snip)They remained deeply in love until the very end, even eating breakfast together while holding hands, said their daughter, Linda Cody.

JACKSON, Wyo. – A slow-motion disaster continued unfolding in the Wyoming resort town of Jackson on Saturday, as a creeping landslide that split a hillside home threatened to swallow up more houses and businesses. The ground beneath the 100-foot hillside had been slowly giving way for almost two weeks before the downward movement accelerated in recent days. With rocks and dirt tumbling down, officials suspended efforts to shore up the slope and said they were uncertain what else could be done. "When is it going to go? How long is it going to last? These are the questions we just

AUSTIN — Documents related to Sen. Wendy Davis’ work as a lawyer for the North Texas Tollway Authority are part of an FBI inquiry of the agency, Travis County officials say. It’s not clear whether Davis’ work for the tollway authority is a focus of the FBI or only part of the material collected in connection with its look into tollway agency operations. The Travis County district attorney’s office said last month that details from its review of a 2012 complaint that a rival filed about Davis’ legal and political activities were “the subject of an open investigation” by the

Jindo, South Korea -- A passenger describes women screaming in the darkness. A father learns his child is trapped. A son, fearing death, tells his mother he loves her. Investigators haven´t said what caused a South Korean ferry boat carrying hundreds of passengers to capsize on Wednesday. But as rescuers searched frigid waters for nearly 300 missing people, text messages purporting to be from missing passengers surfaced, describing the harrowing moments after the ferry started to roll.(Snip) On Thursday, the semi-official Yonhap News Agency reported that police now believe the messages supposedly sent after the ferry sank were fake.

Ashley Ireland had called police and begun a frantic search for her son, Kael, after he went missing from her apartment on Monday afternoon. The three-year-old had managed to open the front door and walk to the nearby amusement arcade, where he was found playing with stuffed toys inside one of the machines. Scroll down for video Kael´s antics had caught the attention of a group of customers in Madsen´s Bowling and Billiards in Lincoln, who

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too
