It looks like the GOP leadership is staking its future on immigration reform. They’ve run the numbers and are convinced that America is trending towards a Democratic majority thanks to the Hispanic Diaspora. Ergo, they hope that by embracing “earned legal status” then they might soften their conservative image and steal enough votes from the Democrats to win the next election. But the Republican establishment has just one small problem: the Republican Party. Worried that congressional Republicans might muddy the GOP’s message with, well, racism, a lobby chaired by Jeb Bush has issued a guide to how to talk about
What part about ILLEGAL don´t these perfumed princess understand. don´t care if you sneaked over the boarder yesterday or 20 years ago and have family, your still ILLEGAL and breaking the law. why is only in America we are suppose to bend over back wards for ILLEGALS and every other nation has strict laws which they do enforce, and very well I might add. so sick and tired of congress, the supreme court and the president not obeying the constitution.
I think the GOP should get up in front of a crowd of folks in a foreign country trying desperately to come here legally and use the opportunity to put forward legislation to double legal immigration overnight. Then, the next day, same GOP member get in front of a bunch of screwed working class Americans and demand that this Adminstration start enforcing labor laws, immigration laws, and stop creating the black market labor force from Mexico which is destroying our American workers and sending them to Dear Leader´s food stamp rolls. There has been no real increase in wages in this country for the American worker in 30 years. These people vote, and many are socially conservative. They voted for Reagan in droves. Rubio and company will have a much better chance winning them over than illegal guests who have habitually broken US laws. And, no, we don´t need to round up illegals. We need to stop giving them government goodies and we need to start enforcing tax and labor laws EVEN against them. They will self deport if you cut off the gravy train. Mexico needs these folks more than we do. We need legal immigrants.
What looks like may happen if the Democrat lite Republican establishment does not come back to its senses, is that there will be an a very liberal amnesty for just about all the illegal aliens now in the USA, that will for the first time give them a special path to citizenship, after which the liberal Democrats and their political allies the many very liberal ethnic and immigrant rights groups will push for a streamlined process by which the legalized aliens will be given US citizenship and US voting rights.
Most legalized aliens will be poor, generally uneducated, low wage earners, with large families, who will need to access all the US social welfare and "free" health care programs to survive in high cost of living America. Since the liberal Democrats want to expand those social welfare programs and give the legalized aliens full access, while the Republicans want to seriously contract those programs and limit access, it is easy to see who the legalized aliens will be voting for in massive numbers.
The margin of Republican votes coming from Hispanics will probably increase from about 28% to about 33%, and the Democrats will pick up about ten million new voters to flip States like Arizona, Florida and Texas into the Democrat column sort of like California is today, after which the Republican (Stupid) Party will be consigned to the dust bins of history totally unable to ever again win national elections or control either house of Congress.
If America can´t fathom the difference between LEGAL immigration , which we need , and ILLEGAL immigration, which must end, we are so screwed.
Why is it that educated people w investment capital are kept OUT , while the undefended southern border allows millions of illegals to come in ? Amnesties have only resulted in millions MORE illegals coming here. We Can´t even employ our own citizens so get rig ofn LLEGALS a nd hire legal folks. I had to prove citizenship to get a badly paid part time job soni can earn grocery $$$ and yet we can´t ask for same ID for Voters? God save America ... It may already be too late. Ø And his one-worlders what countries without Borders where passports are meaningless. It is coming Faster than we think.
Sadly, so many of the lost will still follow, blindly not knowing what to do or where to go; still sticking with the brand that they know although it represents none of their values, and hasn´t, really, for some time.
i usually agree with Stanley but not this time - people don´t actually pick parties based on feeling insulted, or not. The GOP has a history of being anti-Catholic yet the churchgoers are all flocking into it, because who cares what they think about me - they are pro-life. This isn´t picking a brand of butter. It would be actually "enough" to hear that the bigshots are telling the littleshots to shaddup with the bigoted remarks. That is a lot, actually, and if it is lively language and gets picked up and widely seen, that is not embarrassing - it is effective. There´s a reason Jeb Bush wins elections.
NHS patients will benefit from a new brain scan that can help doctors confirm or rule out a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease. David Cameron will announce tomorrow that Britain will be the first place in the world where the revolutionary technique will be available for free. The test will mean that, for the first time, doctors will be able to definitively rule out Alzheimer’s in some patients for five years. Currently, one in five cases of the disease is misdiagnosed. It could also help doctors to confirm an existing diagnosis of Alzheimer’s, ensuring people get the treatment they need.
Barack Obama is facing poll numbers that are now in the same territory as President George W. Bush´s following Hurricane Katrina. The Quinnipiac University Polling Institute released numbers on Tuesday showing that just 38 percent of registered voters approve of the job Obama is doing as president, with a whopping 56 percent saying they disapprove. The president has lost his landslide electoral edge among young voters, too, with a negative 41–49 percent rating among 18- to 29-year-old voters. His once formidable support among Hispanics has also evaporated: They now support him by an historically small 50–43 percent margin.
Secretary of State John Kerry boasted in a congressional hearing on Tuesday that a recent nuclear deal with the Islamic Republic of Iran will make America ´more secure than the day before we entered this agreement.´ [Snip] But ´this agreement halts the progress of Iran´s nuclear program--Halts the program!´ he boasted. ´Iran´s nuclear program will not move forward. Under this agreement, Iran will have to neutralize--end!--its entire supply of 20 percent-enriched uranium, which you know is a short step away from weapons-grade uranium.´ ´Iran will forfeit all--not part--all of that 20 percent [enriched material], that 200-kilogram stockpile. Gone!´
More than 100 members of the BBC have been deployed to South Africa to cover Nelson Mandela’s death and memorial service. Staff were flown out to cover the story in the week the corporation received more than 1,000 complaints from viewers about local news and the storms being ignored to cover his death. (Snip) Far fewer staff were dedicated to the coverage on other channels, with nine people including a presenter, correspondents and camera operator from ITV sent out to South Africa. A spokeswoman for the BBC said: “Over a ten-day period we expect to have deployed around 120 journalists, technicians and support
President Obama shook hands with Cuban President Raul Castro today, an unprecedented gesture of friendship which occurred, fittingly, at the memorial service for Nelson Mandela. [Snip] Obama greeted a long line of world leaders and heads of state attending the memorial service in Johannesburg after flying to South Africa with a U.S. delegation which included former presidents Bill Clinton, George W Bush and Jimmy Carter along with their families. Obama also shook hands with Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff, who has clashed with the U.S. President over alleged National Security Agency spying. He was later spotted in the VIP stands posing
Barack Obama today paid an emotional tribute to Nelson Mandela, calling the South African leader a ´giant of history´ as he spoke at a memorial service in a stadium where around a third of the seats were mysteriously left empty. The U.S. President, who moments earlier had shaken hands with Cuba´s Raul Castro in a historic moment of reconciliation, receivied a rapturous reception for his eulogy at the service in Johannesburg´s FNB Stadium, which started an hour late in the pouring rain. Cyril Ramaphosa, the deputy president of the ruling ANC party who opened the proceedings, said: ´In our tradition,
To those of you who may be alarmed by the notion that the US security services, helped by their obliging colleagues at GCHQ, might have access to all your internet activity--private emails included--Sir Malcolm Rifkind offers soothing reassurance. [Snip] Responding to the fact that a very impressive group of US web companies and internet providers has sent a letter to President Obama expressing concern at this wholesale hoovering up of the internet activityof ordinary citizens, Sir Malcolm observes that the signatories "have not concluded that what is happening…is necessarily unlawful." No, indeed they haven´t--because that is precisely the question at
On his way to the podium at the memorial ceremony for former South African president Nelson Mandela, President Obama walked down the line of dignitaries, greeting other leaders there to pay their respects. Among the hands shaken: that of Cuban leader Raul Castro. Obama neither made a special effort to shake Castro’s hand nor to avoid him. A snub might have been awkward: In his speech, Obama praised Mandela’s “greatest gift” as “his recognition that we are all bound together in ways that can be invisible to the eye; that there is a oneness to humanity; that we achieve ourselves by
The Obama State Department has finally released a second round of photos revealing the harrowing devastation wrought by a terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012. The new photographs depict rampant damage to the consulate. They show charred walls, smoldering fires, Arabic graffiti defacing exterior walls, and scattered debris throughout. The extent of the damage would lead any reasonably serious person to conclude that this was a cold, calculated attack, carefully coordinated to mark the 11th anniversary of Sept. 11, 2001. Unfortunately for the American people, the Obama-Clinton-Rice cabal that led to the Benghazi cover-up was
A black fashion student says he was brutally attacked by a gang of Hasidic men who shouted anti-gay slurs at him while he was walking through Williamsburg after a night of partying, the Daily News has learned. Taj Patterson, 22, was headed home to Fort Greene around 4:30 a.m. on Dec. 1 when he says more than a dozen ultra-Orthodox Jewish men began assaulting him on Flushing Ave. and yelling, “Stay down, f----t!”
A “presidential selfie” featuring President Barack Obama, British Prime Minister David Cameron, and Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt at Nelson Mandela’s memorial service began making the rounds this morning, but it’s the person not included in the frame who caught everyone’s attention: As anyone with two eyes and a Twitter account has noticed, Michelle Obama does not appear amused. Of course, though a picture says a thousand words, not all of those words are necessarily true. FLOTUS might not have even known the photo was taking place. Or she could disapprove of funeral selfies. Either way.
Just how much do many Hollywood liberals hate conservatives? In an interview with Playboy, Ben Affleck said, "When I watch a guy [on film] I know is a big Republican, part of me thinks, I probably wouldn’t like this person if I met him": PLAYBOY: You developed a political profile campaigning for presidential candidates Al Gore, John Kerry and Barack Obama. How did that come about? AFFLECK: I grew up in a house with a mother who was a teacher and a Freedom Rider—very left-wing Democrats living in a heterogeneous working-class neighborhood. I picked up a lot of those values there, and I
MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry opened her program over the weekend with a commentary about the Affordable Care Act’s colloquial moniker: “Obamacare.” She said that the word was originally created as a “derogatory term,” designed by white men as a way to delegitimize President Barack Obama and his achievement. However, she said that the term will soon be synonymous with all of Obama’s accomplishments and she urged her audience to use the term with pride. “I want to talk today about a controversial word. It’s a word that has been with us for years, and like it or not, it’s indelibly
Barack Obama has arrived in South Africa to lead the American delegation at a memorial service for former South African President Nelson Mandela in Johannesburg. But his party is reportedly stuck in traffic and he is said to have arrived late at the stadium for the ceremony. [Snip] But Mr Clinton, Mr Carter and his wife Rosalynn have all traveled separately to the event. According to reports, Mr Obama and his delegation are stuck in a lines of traffic caused by tens of thousands of people making their way to the event. Mr Obama is among the foreign leaders who
