Jeb Bush to House lawmakers:
Improve and pass Senate
immigration bill

Washington Times, by Seth McLaughlin

Original Article

Posted By:jackson, 7/1/2013 9:43:58 AM

Jeb Bush, the former Florida governor and a potential 2016 presidential candidate, says that House Republicans should improve and then pass the immigration bill that passed out of the Democrat-led Senate last week. “No Republican would vote for legislation that stifled economic growth, promoted illegal immigration, added to the welfare rolls, and failed to ensure a secure border,” they said. Mr. Bush and Clint Bollick, co-authors of “Immigration Wars,” said in a Wall Street Journal opinion article that GOP lawmakers would sell out basic conservative principles by opposing the bill.

Comments:
Jeb thinks he is already president. What a fool. Guess he didn´t hear Babs say "no more." Or, more probably, she was being coy. Make no mistake, these folks have contempt for us.

The house GOP has three options:

1) Pass the Senate bill. Result: destroy the party.

2) Modify the Senate Bill and go to conference. Result: destroy the party.

3) Kill the senate bill and pass border control first. Result: save the party until the next fiasco.

The GOP also has three options for the next presidential nomination. Two of those involve the names Bush and Rubio. See the results from options 1 and 2 above.

Now why should anyone listen to Jeb Bush, he is no better than any other citizen who doesn´t want this monstrosity of a bill passed that does nothing for border security which is the first step before anything else.

Who cares what Jeb Bush thinks. The Repubs are nuts if they think they can kiss up to the Hispanics in order to save the party, that is unless they plan to give away more freebies than the Dimorats. I´m about finished with the Republicans. The party of John McCain, Lindsey Graham, Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio can stick it! These morons had best start listening to their base.

Jeb Bush is a private citizen, just like you and me.
He is on the wrong side of this issue.
His wealth insulates him from the negative effects of law breakers who by their very entry into our country thunb their noses at us, and make demands on our resources, that WE need for our own families.
At first I thought there might be a way to compromise, but the behavior of the democrats, along with the militant groups like La Raza tell me that we MUST enforce existing law and deport them.
We´re Americans and we CAN do this.

The Bush family are all establishment Republicans, they are not conservatives, but are certainly the species of Republican who are in favor of allowing massive entry to the country by cheap foreign labor in numbers that will hold down the wages paid to a lot of American workers, or just about eliminate the chances of a lot of American workers even being able to get a job in the future.

They are shortsighted about immigration as they always have been, because history clearly shows that about 85% of the tens of millions of mostly poor and generally uneducated aliens who would be able to live and work legally in the USA, and have what amounts to duel-national status, by being given US citizenship while being allowed to maintain their home country citizenships and foreign allegiances as a result of the liberal Democrat created amnesty and special path to citizenship bill would end up registering as new Democrat voters in the years ahead.

Following that, the Republicans would never be able to win enough key States to win national elections, and as for the cheap labor, what would the politically powerless Republicans do then when the Democrats and their allies unionize all their cheap foreign labor?

C´mon now. Improve and pass this liberal republican excrement, made necessary because Jeb´s daddy and brother chose to do nothing about the flood of undocumented workers and secure borders despite the reform Reagan made in 1986, so that Jeb can get credit, pretend to have some meaningless accomplishment that his severe conservative acolytes can point to as they present him as the champion of the mythical Hispanic vote in 2016.

And they accuse her whose name we dare not speak of being the lazy one.

I think #3 said it all, although they haven´t built the last fence with the money authorized in the last bill. There´s a Marxist lady over at Homeland Security that says no. What will change.

Is it the weather, water boarding or NSA data that has turned GOP types like Jeb Bush and the whole organization into red jelly.

NO Immigration bill. Deport these criminals and start over with people getting into line. If you don´t know who they all are, just ask NSA.

“No Republican would vote for legislation that stifled economic growth, promoted illegal immigration, added to the welfare rolls, and failed to ensure a secure border,”

While that may be true, it certainly won´t keep the RINOs from doing so, as all the usual suspects have already done in the Senate.

An unexpected lesson in diversity

America’s top selling non-fiction book has much to teach about Wall Street malfeasance, but it also offers an intriguing perspective on diversity. The hero of Michael Lewis’ “Flash Boys: A Wall Street Revolt” is Brad Katsuyama, a Canadian-born investment banker for the Royal Bank Canada who transfers to RBC’s New York office. When he gets to the United States, the book explains, Katsuyama not only ultimately uncovers how high frequency trading is corrupting the stock market, he also becomes aware of his minority status for the first time in his life. “In the United States, Brad also noticed, he was expected to

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast

MANCHESTER, N.H. — Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush has started, over the past few weeks, to ratchet up talk of a potential presidential run in 2016. If that´s the case, the reaction he received this weekend at a gathering of conservatives in the first-in-the-nation primary state of New Hampshire was not what he was looking for. Bush served as a punch line for — of all people — Donald Trump. "You know, I heard Jeb Bush the other day," Trump said during his speech at the Freedom Summit, hosted by the conservative groups Citizens United and Americans for Prosperity.

COLLEGE STATION, Tex. — With eyes increasingly on him, Jeb Bush signaled on Sunday the kind of campaign he would mount if he runs for president, one arguing against ideological purity tests while challenging party orthodoxy on issues like immigration and education. Even as he sharply criticized President Obama for his handling of foreign affairs and health care, Mr. Bush made clear that he would run against the style of politics that has characterized recent Republican nominating contests. He said he would decide by the end of the year, in part on whether he thinks he could avoid “the vortex of

In his Kremlin defense of Russia’s annexation of Crimea, Vladimir Putin, even before he began listing the battles where Russian blood had been shed on Crimean soil, spoke of an older deeper bond. Crimea, said Putin, “is the location of ancient Khersones, where Prince Vladimir was baptized. His spiritual feat of adopting Orthodoxy predetermined the overall basis of the culture, civilization and human values that unite the peoples of Russia, Ukraine and Belarus Russia is a Christian country, Putin was saying.

Mark the date. Sometime on Tuesday, Apr. 1, 2014, Charles H Keating Jr. became a footnote … in Sen. John McCain´s biography. No one would have predicted this, not even McCain. Especially McCain. But we were wrong. There was a time when McCain´s association with Keating looked like it would bring an end to the senator´s political career. 1989, Keating´s Lincoln Savings and Loan went belly up, putting taxpayers on the hook for $3.4 billion, or roughly $13.60 from every man, woman and child then living in the United States.

WASHINGTON -- Inevitably, considering the absence of a clear Republican frontrunner for the 2016 presidential election, the name of former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush of the family dynasty has been rushed to the fore. On his record in office and his soft-spoken personal appeal, he would seem a natural to go to the head of a list of only moderately impressive wannabes. But the immediate question is: Do American voters, after a double dose of Bushes, want another one? The fact is that memories of the two George Bush presidencies now set few GOP hearts aflutter.The first George, elected to

Marco Rubio is smack in the middle of the current polls for the 2016 presidential primary. But he may be the early frontrunner when it comes to offering a realistic conservative agenda for reforms that address the economic challenges of modern America. And whether or not he pulls the trigger on a White House run, the U.S. senator from Florida is already helping to refashion the GOP once again into the Party of Ideas. In a series of smart domestic-policy speeches this year, Rubio has generally avoided the easy, reflexive response as to what’s gone terribly wrong with the American

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

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
