Latinos: Obama 'owes' us
Washington Examiner, by Paul Bedard

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 11/8/2012 5:13:53 PM

Hispanic activists are wasting no time pressuring President Obama to give them their due for flooding the polls for his reelection. Citing exit polls that show Obama received up to 71 percent of the Latino vote, Hispanic and pro-immigration reform groups are urging the president to move fast to use his election mandate to pressure foes into an immigration deal. "President Obama unquestionably owes this historic victory to 71% of the Latino vote," said the DRM Action Coalition which promotes the DREAM Act to provide children of undocumented workers special access to college.

Comments:
Their audacity is astonishing. Thank you to Democrats everywhere for fracturing the society. s/o

Silly latinos! (Full disclosure - I am one). If 0 gives you what you want, how will the next dim candidate get you to vote for him? Prepare for permanent anticipation. Next!

Obviously, if latinos only goal is to increase the numbers of latinos in the country it must be to increase their power against whites and other non-latinos. This is a profoundly racist and un-American goal that must be resisted with every fibre of our resolve. Stop illegal immigration. Deport illegal aliens. Reduce quotas for thirs world countries. Restrict immigration to the young, the educated and the English speaking.

I say f**k 'em!! Maybe the Latinos need to finally see how they are played for votes. But I'm sure Bonner and congress will give them all the free stuff on earth and then have the Latinos spit in their faces and vote Dem.

Everyone knows that virtually any group (whether legal, illegal, unethical, immoral, etc.) that attains a sufficient political following, can depend upon the Democrat Party to carry their water. We can only be thankful that pedophiles have not yet gained enough of a following. But felons are on the verge.

Silly special interest groups. Don't you know you are their trump card? They can't play you (give you what you want) until they have a different trump card (special interest group to exploit) to replace you. And, my Latino friends, you are a huge voting block for them and they just can't let you go that easily. So get used to having the carrot dangled before you for at least the next two years until the Dems are able to take over (steal) both houses of Congress.
On another note, lady parts voters, isn't it funny, you were promised something that you already had. So, what's to look forward to? I mean, you already had birth control, access to birth control, cheap birth control and abortion up to the time of birth. You were easy ladies.

Latinos prepare to be fenced into the ghettos with your black brethren and be left there to rot by your liberal friends. They will add you to the government teat and terrify you into submission whenever a conservative utters the phrase 'personal responsibility'. By the time Obama is done every urban area will resemble Staten Island - dumpster diving and begging on the street for fresh water. You see how that is working out for them.

Foolish his/herspanic (I want to be politically correct so that I don't offend anyone) liberal activists. You gave your vote to the dumbocrats again. Don't you people realize that Odummer and Co. don't owe you nothing. Just like the black liberal activists the crats will keep putting out the football ala Lucy and Charlie Brown(or in your case Lucena and Carlos)for you dopes to kick and at the last minute take it away from you. This while you fall flat on your backs. The funny things is every four years you fall for it. I have NO sympathy for you and what you're "owed". Adios suckers.

As an American I give everyone a chance. I don't care what their story is and many times i find a new hero, but you don't start off breaking the law and amount to much, in most cases. Sure the democrats have pandered to and encouraged the legal and illegal population growth since Ted Kennedy, but the Republicans did nothing to resolve the issue of another tribe competing for their chunk of the American corpse. When entire communities fly the flag of Mexico or Puerto Rico higher than the Stars and Stripes, your country is dying.

I'm already furious at the way Hispanics are given preferential treatment. They already have preference in getting into college, the problem is that once they get in they don't have the intellectual chops to finish. Hence, we've spent tax dollars on them, and took the spot from a more qualified student, all for no purpose.

It's difficult enough for a student to get into a state university here in California, but once they move the illegals ahead kids like my son will have no chance.

What proves my point is that any brilliant black or hispanic kid who applies themselves will get a free ride at a great university, and yet they're having trouble filling their quotas. The problem is that in non-Asian minority families success at school is not supported or encouraged. There are exceptions, but the "don't give a damn" percentage is at least 80%, at least in our community.

My son's teachers have told me that it's difficult to get the minority parents to attend parent/teacher conferences, or respond to phone calls. They just want baby sitters. And, heaven forbid, their kid gets into trouble, it's never their kid's fault and the teachers take verbal and physical abuse for even mentioning it.

The joke is on you Latinos. If Obama is stupid enough to throw open the gates to Mexico, your fellow job seekers will flood the job market and life will not be good for those already here. Then there's the greater demand for medical care and education and food and housing. You wanted this assclown, you got him.

In a little over 200 years we have turned into nothing better than ghetto trash. The next decade will turn ugly.

Don't worry, amigo, you will get everything you want plus a lot more as long as you guarantee that all those illegal aliens will vote Demon-RAT forever.

Citizenship, welfare, shoot, lots of good ''free stuff''. The Demon-RATS don't want you to come here, work hard and succeed. They need you poor, dumb, lazy and totally dependant on them. That means you will join most of the rest of their base on the welfare plantation.

Maybe they will even rename it the welfare barrio in your honor.

The dem party has forgotten or lost the meaning America's Constitutional principle, ''equality.'' ...Between unique promises to each of their countless special interest divided groupings, their credibility is stretched far to thin.

It would be better for the country if the dems would return to support for Liberty's principles and honestly debate the issues instead of simply pandering special promises to each of their divisions in exchange for votes.

The wimpy Republicans would be committing long-term political suicide if they allow a liberal Democrat amnesty to pass for 12-20 million illegal aliens that puts them on a "path to citizenship" that is liberal Democrat code speak for eventually granting many millions of legalized aliens US voting rights.

Even if only about half of the legalized aliens ever register and vote, the liberal Democrats would have many millions of new foreign born voters to continue their transformation of America, and ensure that the Republicans are never able again to win national elections.

O will give them Texas and Arizona. He can't be very fond of either state. Just tell Mexico he won't defend them and order our military to leave.

Hillary can announce it is a new Good Neighbor Policy.

The states might put up a stout fight but Mexico has 100m or so population advantage including probably 30% of the people already in those states.

California and New Mexico vote for Democrats so Obama may want to keep them.

Fox News’s ‘Outnumbered’

Washington Post, by Alyssa Rosenberg     Original Article

I thought it was smart when Fox News promoted Megyn Kelly, an anchor with the singular ability to generate juicy cable news moments that appeal to the left and the right, to an evening slot. Ratings-wise, that seems to have been a good call for the network. But one of the things that makes Fox such a strong channel, purely from a business perspective, is its ability to develop new talent and new concepts. And the show the network dreamed up to replace Kelly’s in daytime has a flair of evil genius: In “Outnumbered,” a panel of women will debate

A New, More Sinister IRS Scandal

Yesterday was a significant day in the IRS abuse scandal. The scandal evolved from being about pesky delays in IRS exemption applications to a government conniving with outside interests to put political opponents in prison. Emails obtained by Judicial Watch through the Freedom of Information Act reveal Lois Lerner cooking up plans with Justice Department officials to talk about ways to criminally charge conservative groups that are insufficiently quiet. Larry Noble, a law professor now with the Soros-funded Campaign Legal Center, was cited in the emails as someone agitating to jail conservatives who “falsely” report on IRS forms that they

Clemson accused of trying to integrate religion and football Coach Dabo Swinney and his Clemson football program face a blitz again. This time it´s not South Carolina´s Jadeveon Clowney seeking to slam their quarterback into the turf, or even a lighthearted sound-byte from Gamecocks coach Steve Spurrier aiming to bringing them down a notch. Instead, it´s an oddly dour out-of-state assault in the form of a complaint filed against the football program by the Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF), an atheist rights group from Wisconsin. The FFRF claims that Swinney´s program is "entangled" and "entrenched" in religion. Prayers and Bible studies instituted

JAY CARNEY: I remember we had some discussion during 2012 about well, is it appropriate for the president, the sitting president and candidate, to give interviews with Jon Stewart and others. And the answer was yes, again because the young voters we were trying to reach are more likely to watch The Daily Show than some other news shows. But also, I think if you look back at 2012 and the series of interviews the sitting president of the United States gave, probably the toughest interview he had was with Jon Stewart. Probably the most substantive, challenging interview Barack Obama

GENEVA – Top diplomats from the United States, European Union, Russia and Ukraine reached agreement after marathon talks Thursday on immediate steps to ease the crisis in Ukraine. The tentative agreement puts on hold -- for now at least -- additional economic sanctions the West had prepared to impose on Russia if the talks were fruitless. And that will ease international pressure both on Moscow and nervous European Union nations that depend on Russia for their energy. U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry called the deal the result of a "good day´s work" but emphasized that the words on paper

Is Obama Cooking the Census
Books for Obamacare?

For several months now, whenever the topic of enrollment in the Affordable Care Act came up, I’ve been saying that it was too soon to tell its ultimate effects. We don’t know how many people have paid for their new insurance policies, or how many of those who bought policies were previously uninsured. For that, I said, we will have to wait for Census Bureau data, which offer the best assessment of the insurance status of the whole population. Other surveys are available, but the samples are smaller, so they’re not as good; the census is the gold standard. Unfortunately,

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. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

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

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

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. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

White babies just 15 months old show racial

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

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

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

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

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

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.

With Easter soon approaching, the Rev. Al Sharpton on Wednesday drew parallels between the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the resurrection of President Obama’s political career. Joining the “Tom Joyner Morning Show,” Mr. Sharpton said that his message for this Easter is that “no matter what the world may do to you unfairly, no matter how you’re crucified — nailed to the cross at home, or in your personal relationships, or on the job — that you can rise if you don’t lose yourself during the hard times and the challenges.” The reverend went on to say that Christ endured so much humiliation and unearned suffering leading up to his death,
