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.”

Comments:
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!

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".

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...
DOA.
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.

Both CBS´s Bob Schieffer and NBC´s Brian Williams cried foul on Wednesday evening at the Supreme Court striking down the cap on overall political donations, showing sympathy for supporters of the law. Schieffer lamented that "More and more, the very rich are taking control of our politics" and that "this ruling is just one more sign that we no longer have any campaign laws that really matter."

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has escalated his war of words against the billionaire Koch brothers by publishing an anti-Koch hit piece on his Senate.gov page, despite official rules prohibiting the use of U.S. senators’ .gov websites for political purposes. The Senate.gov web page belonging to the Nevada Democrat currently features a list a list of “facts” about the Koch brothers, their limited government views and financial support for candidates that support these views. “The Kochs want to abolish Social Security,” reads the page. “The Kochs spent $400 million on misleading attack ads in the last election cycle.” The post

The Dartmouth students known as “Concerned Asian, Black, Latin@, Native, Undocumented, Queer, and Differently-Abled students” have followed through on their threat to take “physical action” if the College’s administrators don’t reply to their demands. Their physical action consists of occupying the office of Phil Hanlon, Dartmouth’s president. The demands of these activists are so absurd that when I first reported on them some very intelligent people told me that this was a hoax.

Before getting to the speech itself, it’s worth noting a few things. When the Democrats passed and Barack Obama signed Obamacare, the majority opposed it. About 56%, in fact. A majority have consistently opposed that law ever since. The Obama administration touted 7 million sign-ups by March 31 as “success.” When that goal appeared to be unreachable, the administration suggested that maybe 5 or 6 million would be enough. Now, as if by magic, they have their number. Somehow. All along, the administration has touted false numbers of enrollees. All along, the administration has neglected to admit that Obamacare is

A few months back, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius stated for the record that 7 million Obamacare sign-ups by the end of March would constitute success. She was clear about it. But then February came, and February always stinks. It’s just a lousy month. You’re tired of winter, you’re still miles away from spring, and no one was signing up for Obamacare. That 7 million figure looked totally unreachable. So Sebelius does what every other member of the Obama administration does when confronted with inconvenient facts. She lied.

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better.´ But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged Rose Garden appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night. Others were already insured, including millions who lost coverage when their existing policies were suddenly

With Chris Christie in deep trouble, Republican poobahs are reportedly looking to Jeb Bush to save their party in 2016. The former two-term governor of Florida speaks fluent Spanish, is a convert to Catholicism, and has high name recognition. Jeb could raise millions of dollars over night by just saying “yes” to running. Despite all this, there are strong reasons Republicans should say no to him. 1. His last name is poison. Let’s face it, if Jeb Bush had the last name of Something Else he would have already run for president in 2008 or 2012. According to a recent Washington Post/ABC News poll registered voters were asked if they would definitely NOT vote for Jeb Bush and 50 percent said they would not.

Atlanta – Vegetarians may have a lower BMI and drink alcohol sparingly, but vegetarian diets are tied to generally poorer health, poorer quality of life and a higher need for health care than their meat-eating counterparts. A new study from the Medical University of Graz in Austria finds that vegetarians are more physically active, drink less alcohol and smoke less tobacco than those who consume meat in their diets. Vegetarians also have a higher socioeconomic status and a lower body mass index. But the vegetarian diet — characterized by a low consumption of saturated fats and cholesterol that includes increased intake
