Rubio’s amnesty: A path to
oblivion for the GOP

Daily Caller, by Ann Coulter

Original Article

Posted By:jackson, 1/31/2013 8:59:03 AM

Apart from finding out that Barack Obama did far worse in his re-election than nearly any other incumbent who won re-election, the only thing that perked me up after Nov. 6 was coming across a Time magazine published after the 2004 election, when George W. Bush won a second term. In the mirror image of all the 2012 post-election analyses, the Democrats were said to be finished, out of ideas, hopelessly unpopular. It’s like watching MSNBC, with the word “Democrats” replaced with “Republicans.” Democrats had thrown everything they had into beating Bush, crushing the Howard Dean wing

I have to agree with Anne on this one. She hit the nail on the head. Come down to Texas and live along, or near the border. That will open your eyes.

And tell me again, why is it necessary to bestow American citizenship on "people who are seeking a better life"? If we were to rely on self-deportation by the use of IRS punishment of employers who hire illegals, that would be a huge first step. No automatic citizenship to those born in the US, another great step.

With the residue, give ´em work permits, if you wish. But citizenship? I´m a Missouri resident who commutes to Illinois to work, but is there some magicel impulse I feel to become an Illinois citizen? No.

Perhaps, just perhaps, if our political masters had to live like we do and not like the aristocrats of old that they believe they are, they would see how unchecked immigration, primarily ILLEGAL, has destroyed OUR America, not theirs, natch!

Before they self-elevated to near sainthood and omniscience, we kept our borders relatively well. Thanks to the mistake from Hyannisport, Fat Ted, we reversed the immigration policies of earlier that worked and allowed if not invited the un-washed ILLEGALS USERS from Mexico.

For those of us who are first or second generation born Americans of European immigrants -are we obsessed with the immigration laws that affect our parents or granparents former fellow citizens in the home country?

And I´ll go ahed and make a blanket and sweepng statement (and I have lived on the Texas/Mexico border and grew up in South Florida) - most Heespanics from Mexico, Cental and South America come here for the freebies or low skill work opportunities - not to become Americans.

Ann Coulter is not doing us a good service by tearing up Rubio. He, Rubio, is at this point just attempting to find a solution to the problem of illegal immigration. There is no bill to sign. Is Ann just doing some early intervention for her favorite, Chris Christie? Why do Republicans do this to each other, which is to kill of the good guys before there is even something to criticize (a bill for example). Why couldn´t she just call him on the telephone and have a discussion with him and voice her opinion privately. Everyone wants to be noticed, I guess, and she knows how to get noticed. She isn´t helpful though by publicly impugning a Republican, who at this point has nothing to impugn.

Rubio is a good salesman, and his proposal may sound reasonable, but it falls apart when the "what ifs" rubber meets the road:

What if the border isn´t secured?
What if some liberal court overturns the welfare ban?
What if the background check turns up negative? Deportation?
What if they don´t pay the fine and the back taxes?
What if they don´t meet the Green Card requirements? Mass Waivers? Mass deportations?
What if?
What if?

A non-solution or a dangerous "solution" to a major problem, whether privately held or stated in public is still the same.

SEAL the borders first, then come talk to us later. Bammy won´t deal? TeeEss, the answer is NO! Nothing until then.

Rubio is the problem, not the solution. His plan will destroy the GOP. Ann is trying to speak some common sense to the sheep following this career politician called Rubio. How can so many be so blind? Stop with the cult worship of the Cuban guy in the suit. Ideas matter. His ideas are political suicide.

I have always contended that we are not sending 20 million back to wherever. Having said that, we are failing to seize the moment and get these people to see the err of the marxist way as they will become dems voter.

They will not if properly educated on democracy and capitalism and the party which best facilitates those endeavors. So we give up. Let the dems have them?

There is no reason to confer a special path to citizenship on the 11 to 20 million illegal aliens who are here now. Rubio is an inexperienced US Senator and the Republicans should think twice before following him off a cliff and committing long-term political suicide.

Vicente Fox, former President of Mexico during the G.W. Bush era used to advise all the time, that the vast majority of Mexicans who live and work illegally are proud of being Mexicans, just want to be able to stay here indefinitely, to work here with dignity, and be able to travel to and from the USA as they wish. Most Mexican illegal aliens would be happy to accept such a conditional immigration status if it was offered.

Then if they individually wished to go on to permanent residence (a green card) in the future, they could individually qualify for an immigrant visa and apply for permanent residence just as all legal immigrants must do. Then after five years as a permanent resident, if they wished, they could individually apply for naturalized US citizenship.

Obama does not want any debate on the ramifications of granting US citizenship to untold millions of illegal aliens, because he and the liberal Democrats recognize that about 80% of those aliens who would gain US voting rights would be liberal Democrat voters. With that many new voters, the Democrats could send the Republicans into long-term political oblivion. The Republicans would have to be crazy to go along with Obama´s plan.

Voting against Bushes is an act of love
Daily Caller, by W. James Antle III    Original Article
Posted By: jackson- 4/18/2014 8:23:53 AM     Post Reply
A popular online dictionary offers four definitions for the word “bushed.” The first is “overgrown with bushes.” The second is “exhausted, tired out.” The third is a Canadian colloquialism meaning “mentally unbalanced as a result of prolonged residence in a sparsely inhabited region.” Each of these definitions seems to describe the Republican Party’s feeling about the Bush family. If that’s not true and the GOP nominates Jeb Bush for president — the third Bush since 1988 — then perhaps the fourth definition applies: “unable to find one’s direction; lost; confused.” There’s a case to be made that George H.W. Bush is an underrated president,

America’s top selling non-fiction book has much to teach about Wall Street malfeasance, but it also offers an intriguing perspective on diversity. The hero of Michael Lewis’ “Flash Boys: A Wall Street Revolt” is Brad Katsuyama, a Canadian-born investment banker for the Royal Bank Canada who transfers to RBC’s New York office. When he gets to the United States, the book explains, Katsuyama not only ultimately uncovers how high frequency trading is corrupting the stock market, he also becomes aware of his minority status for the first time in his life. “In the United States, Brad also noticed, he was expected to

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast

MANCHESTER, N.H. — Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush has started, over the past few weeks, to ratchet up talk of a potential presidential run in 2016. If that´s the case, the reaction he received this weekend at a gathering of conservatives in the first-in-the-nation primary state of New Hampshire was not what he was looking for. Bush served as a punch line for — of all people — Donald Trump. "You know, I heard Jeb Bush the other day," Trump said during his speech at the Freedom Summit, hosted by the conservative groups Citizens United and Americans for Prosperity. The crowd immediately started

Barbara Bush was right when she pooh-poohed son Jeb´s interest in running for the White House in 2016. Forget political dynasties -- Bushes, Kennedys and, yes, Clintons -- the former first lady told NBC last year. "We´ve had enough Bushes." She also said: "There are a lot of great families, and it´s not just four families or whatever." Listen to your mother, Jeb.Heed her words well, Hillary. My sweetest dream for 2016 would be for a bipartisan pact: that 2016 will not be a sequel to the 1992 Bush-Clinton faceoff. Is it a deal, Dems? I won´t vote for Bush if you

COLLEGE STATION, Tex. — With eyes increasingly on him, Jeb Bush signaled on Sunday the kind of campaign he would mount if he runs for president, one arguing against ideological purity tests while challenging party orthodoxy on issues like immigration and education. Even as he sharply criticized President Obama for his handling of foreign affairs and health care, Mr. Bush made clear that he would run against the style of politics that has characterized recent Republican nominating contests. He said he would decide by the end of the year, in part on whether he thinks he could avoid “the vortex of

In his Kremlin defense of Russia’s annexation of Crimea, Vladimir Putin, even before he began listing the battles where Russian blood had been shed on Crimean soil, spoke of an older deeper bond. Crimea, said Putin, “is the location of ancient Khersones, where Prince Vladimir was baptized. His spiritual feat of adopting Orthodoxy predetermined the overall basis of the culture, civilization and human values that unite the peoples of Russia, Ukraine and Belarus Russia is a Christian country, Putin was saying.

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.

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.

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?
