Obama, McCain to
huddle on immigration

The Hill (Washington, D.C.), by Alexander Bolton*

Original Article

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) will meet with President Obama at the White House Thursday afternoon to plot strategy for passing comprehensive immigration reform. McCain said Obama requested the meeting, which comes at a time political momentum for immigration reform is flagging. “I’m going over to the White House this afternoon to meet with him [on] immigration reform and others,” he said. “I actually have a respectful and cordial relationship with him.” McCain and Obama need to shore up the support of wavering allies such as Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), who has backed off the push to overhaul the nation´s immigration laws in a

Yep, I´m pretty sure Obama only meets with "respectful" Senators. So glad you qualify, John. You toad.

McCain has little influence with the loony birds, so this will amount to nothing.

McCain, traitor to his nation that he is, will huddle up with the Mulatto criminal and sell us out again.

The POS never misses an opportunity, does he?

To correct the earlier article on Obama being a "moron", the moron is John McCain. McCain is the useful idiot for Obama, with news media surely reporting how Obama is seeking a bipartisan agreement on amnesty rather than a fight with GOP radicals. McCain is the radical, but media will portray him as the moderate. The quotes of the Hanoi Hilton Candidate will be used to besmirch Tea Party, Cruz and others who rightfully oppose amnesty.

Silicon valley wants amnesty to bring in programmers from Pakistan and India, Big Ag (Farma?) wants a few million low wage field hands, Big construction wants cheap foreign labor, the ´Rats want new underclass voters, Mother Church wants new parishioners butting their donations in the collection basket, food processors want their 8 buck an hour chicken pluckers, Mickey D´s and Burger Biggie wants burger flippers that aren´t agitating for $15.00/hour. Meanwhile real unemployment is between 12 and 17% depending on how it´s calculated, and 90 million working age Americans aren´t working. The only bulwark against the invasion is the Tea Partiers and like minded concerned voters. Pass the Senate version of "immigration reform" and kiss your country good-bye. Game. Set. Match.

1. Sorry, no. No one is talking about "immigration reform." Just [pre-deleted] amnesty.

2. No rational person can look at what has happened to America since Obama took office and think he is anything but one of the most successful enemies America ever faced [whether by design, incompetence, or what have you]. Given that, anything less than tooth-and-nail opposition to him abets his snowballing destruction of the country.

I think McCain is now listening to his embarrassingly awful daughter, Meghan, who has a show—yes, I´m not lying—on some remote cable channel where she humiliates herself on some kind of regular schedule. I tuned in by accident and watched until I was close to bending over to barf. And guess what? There was daddy expressing his pride in this fat, bleached bleached Shirley Temple dumpling as she spewed some line of junk in her valley girl voice. Too cute for words—gag. I know of no normal parents who´d want to be within miles of this case of arrested development much less claim her as their own. Makes me wonder why Senator McCain doesn´t knock off huddling with the muslim and spend his time dealing with the boil on his neck commonly called his daughter.

Yo, John: You´ve stayed too long at the fair.

If the Republicans facilitate the liberal Democrat designed immigration reform bill that contains the liberal immigrant advocacy groups´ "whole enchilada" amnesty plan and special path to citizenship for almost the entire illegal alien population the Republicans will be committing long-term political suicide.

Historically about 85% of legalized aliens granted US voting rights in the past have become Democrat voters. The current illegal alien population has been seriously low-balled to the American people, and may well actually be about 20 million people. Once legalized they would be able to bring their close foreign relatives here without limitation. All would have complete access to the legal US labor market and be able to compete against American workers for just about every scarce job out there.

In addition it is estimated that the Democrat bill would allow 30 million new foreign workers and their relatives to come here within the next decade. They would also have complete access to the legal US labor market.

Many employers want an "Open borders" bill as the Democrat bill is, for cheap labor purposes. Those employers plan to pay those foreign workers as little as possible, and expect that those foreign workers will be highly subsidized by the public social welfare net and Obama Care. The costs to Americans who actually do pay taxes will be massive to finance those subsidies if the Republicans facilitate the liberal Democrat immigration reform bill into law.

This is the Republican Party today. McCain IS the Republican Party. No one in the leadership of the Republican Party suggests McCain should leave or doesn´t represent the Party´s Views. It is now foolish to believe that McCain and a others are what is wrong with the GOP. They Are NOT. They are the GOP. The GOP does not give two shakes about the future of America or its citizens. They are only interested in getting money from the donors so they can retain their own PERSONAL power. Businesses want amnesty and are willing to pay for it and the GOP (McCain) is happy to broker the deal.

Chris Christie: Republicans don´t get anywhere

Gov. Chris Christie, R-N.J., turned down the opportunity to bash the mainstream media on Friday, when interviewed by Fox News host Megyn Kelly. Kelly pointed out, during a part of the interview aired on Friday, that there was an unprecedented volume of negative media coverage surrounding the bridge controversy in New Jersey. "Has this changed your view of the mainstream media?" she asked. "No, I´ve always had the same view," Christie said, pointing out that anyone can be the "flavor of the month" in the media. "But I´ve always said to my folks in the party, we don´t get anywhere complaining about it either,"

Republican pundit Charles Krauthammer said that when Republican New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie embraced President Barack Obama after Hurricane Sandy a week before the 2012 presidential election, he was essentially giving Obama a lap dance. “I think many Republicans are extremely upset with what was described in the press as giving Obama a bear hug,” Krauthammer said on Sunday in a debate with Obama strategist David Plouffe, according to Politico. “I saw it slightly differently, I thought it was more of like a lap dance. Not a phrase I would use on television, since the image is too disturbing.” Krauthammer did use

In a way it´s the oddest bit of ObamaCare propaganda we´ve seen so far. "This Is What an #ACASurge Looks Like" was the title of a Saturday post on the White House Blog by senior communications adviser Tara McGuinness. "The line started forming at 5 a.m. in front of an enrollment center in Miami," McGuinness boasts. "The final deadline to get covered in 2014 is in just two days, and Americans are literally lining up at grassroots events across the country to make sure they´re covered. This is what momentum looks like." To McGuinness´s credit, she does mean "literally" literally. The post

Suddenly ObamaCare is a roaring success, happy days are here again and liberals are euphoric, or claim to be. There are more than a few reasons to doubt this new fairy tale, not least the behavior of Senate Democrats running for re-election this year. In the Rose Garden Tuesday, President Obama reported that 7.1 million people had signed up so far, confirming a Monday night White House news leak. "That doesn´t mean all our health-care problems have been solved forever," he conceded with customary modesty. The government appears to have tapped heretofore-unknown reserves of bureaucratic efficiency by releasing numbers timed to

Health Care: The administration is crowing that 7 million people filled out applications for ObamaCare plans — the original enrollment target that once seemed impossible to hit. Don´t pop the champagne bottles just yet. Given the news about surging enrollment and rising poll numbers, maybe Nancy Pelosi was right that Democrats will all benefit in the fall from ObamaCare. Except that once you strip out the hyperbole, little remains to celebrate. • Seven million enrollees? That figure fails to discount those who haven´t paid their premiums. Among the eight states releasing this number, about one in five "enrollees," on average, haven´t paid.

When friends and family members gathered recently at the White House for a private celebration of Michelle Obama’s 50th birthday, one of the invited partygoers was a former paid FBI Mafia informant. That same man attended February’s state dinner in honor of French President Francois Hollande. He was seated with his girlfriend at a table adjacent to President Barack Obama, who is likely unaware that, according to federal agents, his guest once interacted with members of four of New York City’s five organized crime families. He even secretly taped some of those wiseguys using a briefcase that FBI technicians outfitted

LONDON - Peaches Geldof, the wild-child second daughter of concert organizer Bob Geldof who worked as a model, a television presenter and a fashion writer and filled the pages of British tabloids with her late-night antics, has died at age 25. There was no immediate word on the cause of her death at her home in Wrotham, Kent, southeast England. Her father said in a statement Monday: "Peaches has died. We are beyond pain." "She was the wildest, funniest, cleverest, wittiest and the most bonkers of all of us," he said. "Writing 'was' destroys me afresh. What a beautiful child. How is this possible that we will not see her again? How is that bearable? We loved her and will cherish her forever."

A married freshman Republican congressman who campaigned on his Christian, conservative values apologized Monday after surveillance video surfaced purportedly showing him in a lengthy liplock with a staffer. In the Dec. 23 footage, obtained by a local newspaper, Rep. Vance McAllister, R-La. - who ahead of his election last fall ran multiple campaign ads trumpeting his faith and family - is seen kissing and embracing a woman for about 20 seconds at his Monroe, La., district office. The Ouachita Citizen reports the woman is the congressman´s 33-year-old part-time scheduler, who is also married.

Call it the million-worker mystery. A large chunk of American adults are no longer in the labor force. That has left economists divided over how many of them are voluntarily not working-or even looking for work-because they wanted to retire, go to school or take care of family members, versus how many have been forced out because they couldn´t find a job. (snip) Shierholz estimates that there are currently more than 5 million missing workers who are not included in the unemployment rate because they are neither working nor looking for work, but who might be if the job market

The chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee says investigators have uncovered evidence that a former Internal Revenue Service official may have committed crimes as part of the agency´s tea party controversy. Rep. Dave Camp set a committee vote for Wednesday on whether to refer Lois Lerner, who used to head the agency´s tax-exempt division, to the Justice Department "for possible criminal prosecution." Camp, R-Mich., did not specify which laws Lerner may have broken. Lerner´s lawyer, William W. Taylor III, has said she broke no laws. On Monday, Taylor emailed this response to Camp´s announcement: "One word: Ridiculous." Camp´s committee has been investigating

The Democratic National Committee is furious by a conservative website’s ad campaign that depicts Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi clad in a bikini in a provocative pose with her tongue sticking out. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, called on Republicans to press Breitbart News to remove the artwork — one of several suggestive images on the website promoting the new California site. The image of Pelosi, beneath one of California Gov. Jerry Brown’s face photo-shopped onto a flexing body builder, includes the sub-head: “Because you can’t make this s— up.” “To say the least,

Add Bryan Cranston, the star of TV´s recent hit "Breaking Bad" and a new Broadway play about former President Lyndon B. Johnson, to Team Obamacare. In an interview with Yahoo News “global anchor” Katie Couric, the actor called Obamacare the highlight of President Obama´s legacy. “Now’s the time to stake a claim to leave your legacy,” he encouraged Obama. “I personally believe that his health care program is fantastic. Yes, there are problems. Anything worth while is going to go through a growing pains period. But this is his legacy and I think it’s a great one because I don’t

As the House prepares for several key votes on former Internal Revenue Service employee Lois G. Lerner and potential legal action, analysts say she and her attorney have mishandled their case by picking and choosing when they want to talk, and to whom they are willing to talk. Ms. Lerner faces a vote in the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee on Thursday that could begin the process of accusing her of contempt of Congress. The Ways and Means Committee announced that it will hold a vote Wednesday on whether to officially accuse Ms. Lerner of breaking the law by

Hours after the Drudge Report suggested on Sunday that "Republicans expand[ed] Obamacare" in the headline for the site´s lead story, an "alert" from the office of House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, countered that they had actually "chip[ped] away another piece" of the law. The recent change "eliminated a cap on deductibles for small group policies offered inside the law´s health care exchanges as well as outside," the Associated Press explained. "Successfully repealing this Obamacare provision is just one part of Republicans´ larger effort to repeal the full law and replace it with better solutions focused on lowering health care costs for families
