Immigration & Delusion
National Review Online, by Andrew C. McCarthy

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 11/8/2012 10:22:32 AM

Could you find a more sharp disagreement between genuinely smart folk than in the competing description of Hispanic immigrants offered by Heather Mac Donald and the editors of the Wall Street Journal? Here is the Journal this morning: Immigrants should be a natural GOP constituency. Newcomers to the U.S.—legal or illegal—tend to be aspiring people who believe in the dignity of work and self-sufficiency, and they are cultural conservatives. They are not the 47%.Here is Heather yesterday: If Republicans want to change their stance on immigration, they should do so on the merits, not out

If immigrants from Mexico voted republican, Obama would have a burning ditch, gun towers for 2000 miles and mined beaches.

I disagree. Writer is linking all Hispanics with Mexican radicals. Cubans, Puerto Ricans, Chileans, Venezuelans immigrant and others who fled S.A. and Central American commie regimes are conservatives. Mexican illegals are being represented by La Raza and leftist militants. Republicans need to have Rubio and other elected Hispanics lead the charge to spread the truth. It can be done.

Obama won by over 1% of the popular vote. No voter I.D.'s required. How many of his voters were citizens?

Agree #2. If they're going to slice and dice all white Americans by sex, sexual preference, age, income, etc. then it's time to fight fire with fire and start pointing out that a Cuban is not a Mexican is not a Venezuelan.

'Hispanic' is a catchall invented out of whole cloth by Richard Nixon, the gift that keeps on giving.

If I were a Cuban or an Argentinian I would make sure I stood apart from Mexicans who simply want the goodies.

I disagree with the comment that immigrants come here to work hard; I worked in a dental office for thirty years. And for these 30 years I watched hundreds of Mexican families come to the US; first thing they did was get on welfare, have a baby, get food stamps, come to the dentist for free with their Medicaid benefits. Juan worked hard as a gardener, and Maria worked hard as a house cleaner, and they were paid cash; no taxes were paid. They kept their cash, they brought more relatives, they kept their welfare and Medicaid, and they had a baby every year. What a great life. I am sick of it.

One single Spanish speaking Rush Limbaugh would change Hispanics in this country within months.

I don't think that Mr. McCarthy has lived with these people. I have. They are good people. They make fine citizens - those that choose to obey the law. They are friendly, and outgoing. They do work hard and let's face it, if public welfare is available, why not take advantage of it! I would too, especially if I had no where else to turn.

But there is a liberal Hispanic media and public education system that is teaching them the importance of the culture of dependency. More importantly it is teaching this to their children. These kids grow up not knowing about the strength of the U.S. culture or the strength of their own cultures.

Conservatives can change this, without changing what we believe or how we approach immigration.

Oh, and don't compare Hispanics to Islam.

One thing is for sure, if the Republicans cave and allow the liberal Democrats to pass an amnesty for the 20 million or so illegal aliens here now that after passing them through a few meaningless hoops eventually gives them US voting rights, the vast majority of them being poor low wage earners with limited educations, who have large families and come from socialist oriented third world countries will eventually become liberal Democrat voters and the Republicans will have committed long-term political suicide.

Why do you think the liberal Democrats always support a permanent amnesty and "a path to citizenship" for most illegal aliens, and at the same time oppose and sabotage all effective immigration law enforcement measures, it certainly is not because they think that once able, such a massive legalized alien population would have an epiphany and vote for conservative Republicans!

People who came here illegally should never be granted citizenship unless they leave and come back legally, even if amnesty legislation allows them to stay.

Roberts: NYT Residency Story Is Wrong
National Review Online, by Betsy Woodruff    Original Article

Kansas senator Pat Roberts hit back today at a New York Times story questioning whether the senator has a residence in his home state. “We had an interview with Jonathan Martin where we discussed the senator’s residency, and what turned up in the story is a distortion,” Sarah Little, the Roberts campaign’s communications director, tells National Review Online. Little says the senator is in Wichita today and goes back to the state whenever he can, and that the Times piece is a hit job. The Times reporter, Jonathan Martin, leads his story with a man-in-the-street interview of retiree Jerald Miller held at a

Warm fuzzies for one of the world´s most notorious terrorist helpers? I can´t think of a more stomach-turning way to mark the holiday. Thanks to the Obama administration, Stewart walked out of prison on New Year´s Eve. She is reportedly suffering stage-four breast cancer.

Moderate Republicans team up

A Republican super PAC committed to defeating the tea party in 2014 congressional primaries is mostly funded by labor unions. The super PAC Defending Main Street, formed by moderate Republican and former congressman Steve LaTourette, has committed itself to destroying tea party challenges to establishment GOP candidates in the 2014 midterm elections. “Hopefully we’ll go into eight to 10 races and beat the snot out of them,” LaTourette said. His PAC has already committed itself to defending Republican Idaho Rep.

Geraldo Rivera took on Bill O’Reilly Friday night over whether O’Reilly was disrespectful to President Obama in their big Super Bowl interview. Rivera gave O’Reilly some benefit of the doubt, but other than that thought O’Reilly was a bit too confrontational and didn’t give Obama the kind of respect a president normally deserves. Rivera argued it was less like an interview and more like a meeting of the minds with the “President of Most of the White Guys of America” (O’Reilly) against the president of the rest of the country, and told O’Reilly that it was out of line for him

Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson, the nation’s top immigration law enforcer, said on Friday that the estimated 11.5 million illegal aliens in the United States are “not going away.” “They’re here, and they’re not going away,” Johnson said at the Woodrow Wilson Center in remarks billed by the Obama administration as his “first major speech.” Johnson’s comment came after he gave his prepared address and was in response to Jane Harman, president and CEO of the Woodrow Wilson Center, asking him about the fate of immigration reform in this session of Congress. “In today’s press there is a

What a coincidence! After Barack Obama became the first major-party candidate since Watergate to opt out of the presidential matching-fund system and its spending limits and raised hundreds of millions of dollars in two election cycles, wealthy liberal activists want Congress to impose a public-finance system for federal-government elections. In fact, it’s some of the same people that Obama’s broken promise to remain within that now-defunct system enabled: Some big Democratic donors have a message for Congress: Don’t rely so much on the rich to fill your campaign war chests. A group of 60 wealthy donors and activists have signed

The Democratic National Committee (DNC) again defended President Obama from potential impeachment in a fundraising email Friday. The DNC’s second impeachment-related fundraising email in recent weeks suggests that the main thrust of the party’s 2014 U.S. House campaigns is to prevent Obama from meeting the fate of Andrew Johnson and Bill Clinton. “It’s happening again…,” the email stated, featuring a red-and-black image of Republican Rep. Paul Ryan. “Rep. Paul Ryan is telling reporters that President Obama is ‘increasingly lawless,’” according to the DNC email. “Rep. Paul Broun (Running for Senate in Georgia) just said there’s a “good reason” for an

Several states are dumping their prison population’s healthcare onto Obamacare. At least six states and counties fromMaryland to Oregon’s Multnomah are getting inmates coverage under Obamacare and its expansion of Medicaid, the federal and state health-care program for the poor. The fledgling movement would shift to the federal government some of the more than $6.5 billion in annual state costs for treating prisoners. Proponents say it also will make recidivism rarer, because inmates released with coverage are more likely to get treatment for mental illness, substance abuse and other conditions that can lead them to crime. “When someone gets discharged from the

Is this the best the Establishment has got on Chris McDaniel? A super PAC associated with former Mississippi Gov. and current lobbyist Haley Barbour has resorted to attacking McDaniel for voting for bills that Barbour supported and signed into law. And in one instance, the group accuses McDaniel of voting for a bill he didn´t vote for. Barbour, incidentally, also signed that one into law. McDaniel has secured endorsements from the conservative groups like the Club for Growth, the Senate Conservatives Fund, Heritage Action, and Freedomworks. The Washington establishment appears to be deeply concerned that Cochran is in trouble before

Appearing on America’s Newsroom this morning, Juan Williams suggested it was fair of President Obama to criticize Fox News for its coverage of the 2012 Benghazi terrorist attack. Asked by host Gregg Jarrett to address the president’s declining to label Benghazi an “an act of terror” immediately following the siege, Williams responded that “At this point, it’s a political football… that I think people are keeping alike to hector Hillary Clinton.” Later on, Jarrett asked whether it was “undignified” and “embarrassing” of the president, during his pre-Super Bowl interview with Bill O’Reilly, to “blame the the Fox News Channel for the Benghazi

The U.S. economy has averaged about 2.5% growth for four and a half years in what is supposedly a recovery, median household income is below where it was when the recession ended in June 2009, and job growth is mediocre. But the political class seems intent on fighting over the blame rather than trying to escape the malaise. The latest evidence is John Boehner´s punt on immigration reform. Only days ago the House Speaker floated a set of reform principles that opened the door to a potential compromise with Democrats and the Senate. But the response from the anti-reform right was

It is one of the most common - albeit, ineptly used - elements of the English language. Now, an American academic has suggested that the comma could be abolished as a punctuation mark. Professor John McWhorter claims removing commas from most modern U.S. texts would cause ´little loss of clarity´ - meaning they may now be in a state of obsolescence. He adds that internet users are becoming increasingly carefree in their use of the punctuation mark - with some professional writers following suit, according to The Times. ´[You] could take them out of a great deal of modern American

SAN ANTONIO — We recommend incumbent John Cornyn for the GOP´s U.S. Senate nomination, based on unmatched experience and decades of service to Texas. The theme among a bevy of challengers seems to be that Cornyn is a CINO, a conservative in name only. This is not just counter-intuitive but counter-factual. Various ratings — liberal and conservative — have agreed on one thing, Cornyn´s conservative credentials are genuine. Not conservative? Cornyn is No. 2 in Senate leadership and diverged only slightly from the conservative playbook in a year in which he offered a measure that would further beef up security at the

Democrats from President Obama on down have been touting Obamacare´s sign-up numbers. Even after the system´s disastrous rollout, they like to point out, roughly three million people have signed up for private insurance, while 6.3 million have signed up for Medicaid. "Already, because of the Affordable Care Act, more than nine million Americans have signed up for private health insurance or Medicaid coverage," Obama said in the State of the Union speech. "Nine million." (Snip) But there is strong new evidence to suggest the administration's claims are grossly exaggerated and deeply misleading. Obamacare is not doing nearly as well as the

Count Polly Lower among those who quit their jobs because of the health-care law. It happened in September, when her boss abruptly changed her job description. She went from doing payroll, which she liked, to working on her boss’s schedule, which she loathed. At another time, she might have had to grit her teeth and accept the new position because she needed the health benefits. But with the health-care law soon to take effect, she simply resigned — and hasn’t looked back. “It was wonderful. It was very freeing,” said Lower, 56, of Bourbon, Ind., who is now babysitting her

Even nearly three years out, it’s become “common knowledge” which has been repeated by more folks than you can count. (Including yours truly) Hillary Clinton is going to run for President. How could she not? And assuming she does, she will most certainly win the Democrat nomination. On top of that, she will present a daunting challenge to the GOP candidate, no matter whether the nominee is “establishment” or “grassroots” or from the Planet Ork. But I’m seeing an increasing amount of speculation that perhaps the conventional wisdom is neither. Does she want to spend two more years on the

On May 12, 1992, Stan Greenberg and Celinda Lake, top pollsters for Bill Clinton’s presidential campaign, issued a confidential memo. The memo’s subject was “Research on Hillary Clinton.” Voters admired the strength of the Arkansas first couple, the pollsters wrote. However, “they also fear that only someone too politically ambitious, too strong, and too ruthless could survive such controversy so well.” Their conclusion: “What voters find slick in Bill Clinton, they find ruthless in Hillary.” The full memo is one of many previously unpublished documents contained in the archive of one of Hillary Clinton’s best friends and advisers, documents that

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin´s long fall in popularity back home has hit a new low, one that could spell an end to the buzz she´s considering a presidential bid in 2016. In a new poll, she would lose a head-to-head contest with Democrat Hillary Clinton, 44 percent to 43 percent. Worse, she doesn´t even lead among those considering a GOP primary bid. Sen.
