Rubio Dissembles on Amnesty
Daily Caller, by Mickey Kaus

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 2/14/2013 11:14:58 AM

Poor man had no choice: Sen. Marco Rubio had to be deceptive when describing his immigration plans last night–otherwise he’d have little chance of making the sale. Here’s what Rubio said: We need a responsible, permanent solution to the problem of those who are here illegally. But first, we must follow through on the broken promises of the past to secure our borders and enforce our laws. This makes it sound as if Rubio would take action to “secure our borders and enforce our laws” before offering to legalize “those who are here illegally.”

I´m so sorry to see this about Rubio. I guess it was too much to ask for in thinking he would be any different than a typical politician in Washington. He is one of the most articulate Republicans I have seen, but his coziness with the deceitful, corrupt Democrats will take us down a road this country can´t survive.

Isn´t this exactly what Alicia was warning about? Kaus has taken the bait for the Dem trap.

Not surprised! He thinks this will elevate him to acquiring the illegals votes--maybe not so much for him on top of the ticket but for Jeb B. to top a ticket with him as VP.

Reading what some of his constituents have said (most certain opposition research has already been done on him and this is why the media and Dems are reacting to him--building up his profile) makes one easily see the "RINO" strain showing on his backside. He has had financial problems---back when Speaker of the House in FL of using issued credit cards (may have reimbursed for charges), personal financial problems among other things.
He would fit the Rove model quite well!

#3, is it not just barely possible that Marco Rubio´s motives are sincere?

Alicia, Marco, or Geraldo .. what´s with some Hispanics (wither Puerto Rican, Cuban, Mexican or other family backgrounds) who place their ethnic concerns over those of the nation? Marco and Alicia are good people, but I reserve the right and will exercise my right to disagree with them on this subject and to point out their obvious conflict of interest.

We have a proper immigration path. If it needs fixing - fix it. If the borders need securing - secure them. This is especially true for a nation that is (or was) an island of liberty in a sea of 7-billion or so, most of whom are "subjects".

Welcome to the party, pal.
Not pleasant to find yourself sold down the river by some preening, metrosexual, John Edwards wannabe, but it is what it is.

And he continues to carry the lie that it is an immigration and border busting problem. It´s an illegal employment problem. Dry up the illegal employment, you dry up the illegal immigration problem. The only solution is to issue work grant cards- 30 days, you get in, as a registered illegal worker, find an employer to sign the card, you get to stay and pay taxes on your earnings like everyone else, and get workmens comp protections like everyone else. I have no problems with that. I´d even allow them to take Driver´s license testing and get a DL- with "Foreign Worker" stamped across it, so they can be on the highway legally and get insurance.

But, the sad fact is, employers love these little low paid slaves from Mexico. The working peasant class is a beautiful thing when most Americans would rather sit at home and collect unemployment wages.

Oh brother. here we go. Calling Alicia and Rubio down for putting their ethnic background before country is an idiotic comment. If you paid attention to what they are saying you´d know that they are trying to save America and return it to what it was before. They are born and bred Americans who may look different than you but are just as patriotic as you think you are. They both want border security First and are not at all like Geraldo.

There are three levels of amnesty that the Republicans could cave on to allow the liberal Democrats to loudly claim that they passed comprehensive immigration reform.

The Republicans could go along with giving longtime illegal aliens an indefinite conditional or probationary immigration status that would allow them to stay, work, and to travel internationally. Once in that status the aliens would have to qualify for an immigrant visa, as all legal immigrants must do, to be granted Permanent resident status. That´s what going to the back of the line should mean.

The Republicans could go along with immediately granting most illegal aliens permanent resident (green card) status. They could then bring their close foreign family members to the USA and in five years apply for US citizenship.

Or the Republicans could just go along to get along with the liberal Democrats and grant most illegal aliens US citizenship and US voting rights.

The Republicans should go with the conditional or probationary immigration status option, and make sure that the only way that those legalized aliens can become permanent residents is that they first qualify for an immigrant visa. That would stop most legalized aliens from being granted US voting rights all at the same time.

If the Republicans did that, most illegal aliens being given conditional or probationary immigration status would be happy as they could stay here and work legally. However the Democrats would not be happy, as they are looking forward to a mass of 10 million or so new Democrat voters coming on line quickly as the result of 11-20 million illegal aliens being granted US voting rights.

What this article describes is the truth about Rubio, the gang of 8, amnesty... ALL of it.

The amnesty would immediately take effect, save for obfuscation through semantics, and if you are naive enough to think that Rubio himself is naive, and being led against his will by the rest of the gang of 8, you need to wise up and think.

The ones here, pushing, pushing, pushing for amnesty, (their name-calling and attempts at bullying and isolating what has OBVIOUSLY become the majority notwithstanding), have a very difficult, no, IMPOSSIBLE time of pulling enlightened voters back under their lying party´s umbrella, and are beside themselves with ire, while they try to convince right-minded people that they are wrong.

Attempting to present Rubio´s, and therefore, the gang of 8´s amnesty (remember who the gang of 8 is), as a plan that will require securing the borders PRIOR to amnesty being granted, are lying through their teeth, and they know it.

Now they think they have a new weapon to use against the right-minded among us - Alicia Colon´s article today.

Sorry guys, but I believe we´ve already shot down that foolishness.

#3, the constitution bars a veep pick from the same state as the prez nominee.
Jebster and Rubio are both from Florida.

Remember how Cheney went back to Wyoming and re-established his legal residency
there in order to be Dubya´s veep pick? That´s because as an oil exec Cheney was
living in Texas. He and Dubya could not be officially from the same state.
Recall that Cheney started out as a Wyoming congressman, so his move back was legit.

Jebster and Rubester are both elected officials statewide in Florida and cannot
pretend to be from some other state. (Jebster the ex-gov, of course.)
So there is no getting around it if someone is honest and not a con artist.

Rubio is good at PR up to a point. But he has already been tainted by being co-opted
by Schumer and McCain and aligning for amnesty.
Amnesty and Rubio may both already be...
Besides, is Rubio a natural born citizen?
Apparently not.

#8 it is not possible to reason with one issue voters. The problem is their very easily manipulated by the the other side and the press. The problem is our side has one issue voters on many different issues, therefore we never get behind any candidate.#3 it´s nice you believe everything Charlie Crist says. We are not called the stupid party for nothing.

Obama administration’s ‘Culture of
intimidation’ seen in Nevada ranch standoff
Washington Times, by Valerie Richardson    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/16/2014 10:09:44 PM     Post Reply
Sending scores of armed agents along with helicopters and dogs to confront an elderly Nevada rancher over grazing fees may seem like overkill, but critics say it’s not inconsistent with the federal government’s recent approach to environmental enforcement. The simmering truce between the Bundys and the Bureau of Land Management comes after high-profile raids last year by armed federal agents on small-time gold miners in tiny Chicken, Alaska, and guitar makers at the Gibson Guitar facilities in Tennessee. That doesn’t include more subtle threats, such as recent efforts by the Obama administration to raise grazing fees or pressure

Congressman: Obama ´Has Been Forced
to Deport a Huge Number of Americans´

Rep. Joe Garcia (D-Fla.) is among the Democrats pressing Congress to take up immigration reform. On Tuesday, he told a conference call that deportations are breaking families apart and leaving children in foster care. "So the human toll has been horrific. This president, by implementation of existing law, has been forced to deport a huge number of Americans." Although Garcia may consider the deportees to be "Americans," legally they are not. But they might become citizens if Garcia and other immigration advocates get their way. Democrats are urging Republicans to sign their discharge petition, which would force a House vote on

Oversight member on Lois Lerner
coordination with DOJ: ‘Now I see

Key members of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform expressed outrage at revelations made in newly released emails showing ex-IRS official Lois Lerner coordinating with the Department of Justice on prosecuting nonprofit groups. One committee member said the emails prove why the IRS is “scared to give up the rest of Lois Lerner’s emails.” IRS commissioner John Koskinen was recently threatened with contempt for stonewalling the committee’s investigation. Koskinen claimed in a hearing that it could take years to provide the documents requested by Oversight. “The release of new documents

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

So I´m outside yesterday leaving work, and a woman stops me to say how much she loves me. I get this all the time. We chat a bit and she goes on to tell me how much she appreciates my covering what the other guys won´t. Then she said something that really stuck with me. "Neil, thank god you´re not cool." I told her, "is it that obvious?" She laughed. I laughed. But she got me thinking. It happens sometimes. I´m not cool. But I´m ok with that. Good thing, because I never was cool. But just admitting that to the mainstream media is very un-cool. Because the mainstream media

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

The Terrifying Implications of

Thank God for Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration J. Russell George. His investigation of what turned out to be the IRS abuse scandal may well have saved the Constitution and the nation. For his fair and impartial investigation into the Internal Revenue Service’s abuse of Americans who dissent from President Obama’s agenda, Democrats have called for an investigation of him. George should not be investigated, but perhaps the Democrats who want him investigated — Reps. Gerry Connolly (D-VA) and Matt Cartwright (D-PA) — should be. Their call for an investigation of the investigator might constitute interference with the ongoing investigation

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history.

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes.

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

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

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
