Ingraham Battles George Will,
Fox Panel: GOP ‘Elites’
Pushing Immigration Reform

Mediaite, by Evan McMurry

Original Article

Posted By:mikkins2, 2/9/2014 6:45:05 PM

Conservative radio host Laura Ingraham battled the rest of the Fox News Sunday panel over immigration, arguing that immigration reform and current enforcement of immigration laws were weakening the American workforce, even as her fellow panelists countered that reform would bolster the economy. “I think what we’re seeing here is a split inside the Republican Party between two staunch conservatives,” host Chris Wallace said, going on to ply Ingraham with a Wall Street Journal editorial that called flinching on reform “de facto amnesty.” “As far as I can tell, the Wall Street Journal is on the side of Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer,

Laura Ingraham destroys George Will and the Republican Establishments lust for immigration reform.

Was great to hear Laura. Her program was dropped in my listening area.
She is right!

It´s truly mind-numbing how stupid our pontificating pundit class is. Caught in the spell of the Beltway Bubble. Unable to grasp even the most obvious shred of common sense, or unwilling to speak it.

Ingraham alone gets it.

George Will needs another dinner with Obama. He actually believes these illegals are going to grow our economy. Laura made him, and his partner, Jaun Williams, look like chumps.
Will was pleading for more workers from Mexico. Unbelievable! What a champion of conservatism. He needs to go back to ABC--or wherever!! Thank you, Laura.

What´s the matter with you, Laura?

Don´t you realize that George Will is highly respected by America´s elite media pundits? Don´t you remember that he used to wear only bow ties?

C´mon, lady - - you´re challenging someone who regularly goes to Georgetown cocktail parties. That simply isn´t done.

Big business, all news networks included are in this boat together. They want cheap labor and yes well educated labor lumped in with it to make it palatable. The government needs them as taxpayers and social security payers to hold up the failing system. In addition, they are going to dump all the health care of their employees on the federal government. The states are already dumping their prisoners on the federal government. Elites will continue to have the best and the rest of us who pay the bulk of the taxes won´t be able to afford the best health care for ourselves. We, the so called ´middle class´, are being screwed. This will not be a cure for the excess government spending. I forsee the healthcare dollars eventually going into the general fund exactly as they have done with Medicare and Social Security. Our representatives, for the most part, are shortsighted and/or immoral to condone this.

If the GOP doesn´t get out in front of this issue, the Dems will make sure they have full citizenship with no border security in no time. Give them some legal status and demand border security. If Obama doesn´t secure the border, voters will know who to blame. But we have to do something!

Will tipped his hand when he said it isn´t about employment, it is about growth. What he means is growth through cheap labor. He also reinforced that with his comment about losing the race for human capital (that´s what he call people like us that work for a living). He means we need our wages as low as the rest of the world. That only happens when unemployment is chronically high.

George Will is an establishment guy through and through. Cheap labor for the oligarchs, who don´t care if the illegals vote Democrat 100%. The GOP is all about protecting the ruling class. If that means importing Democrats, then fine.

This is basic free market economics 101.

Supply and demand works for wages just as it does for products. The wage for a job is set by the amount of people who will do the job.

If the amount of jobs needed to be done exceeds the amount of workers who will do them, then the compensation for labor will rise as jobs compete to attract someone to do them.

If you flood the market with workers and those workers exceed the amount of jobs to be done, then the compensation for labor decreases as workers compete to find a job.

This is why the canard of "Jobs Americans wont do" is such an insult to peoples intelligence.

A more fitting slogan is "Jobs businesses wont pay Americans to do".

Thanks, Laura. The GOP establishment elites (and those on a first name basis with them included) are out of touch.

Judgement day is coming - don´t know how long it will be, but the people will not sit still for this elitist mumbo jumbo forever.

The cheap labor argument is bogus. Illegals are already cheap. Amnesty will make them subject to labor laws, and thus no longer cheap.

Then new illegals will be brought in to do the $5 per hour work.

The 287g program was created in 2006. One of the first leaders to get trained and utilize the program was Sheriff Joe Arpaio. One sheriff was able to get up to speed on the program and identify something like 47,000 people here illegally, largely by checking the identities of people in jail and prison. Obama moved quickly cut Arpaio out of the program and then weaken it so that Hispanics would stop complaining. Once again, Obama was handed an effective government program and went out of his way to break it.

Yes indeed, why have borders if we validate those here illegally and fail to actually stop the crossings? I find the WSJ argument and Will´s interesting, but it relies upon the assumption that not passing the amnesty bill as proposed means nothing gets done and therefore that´s bad. So therefore it´s compromise for the sake of getting something no matter the absurdity of it. Clearly the Dems want the Hispanic vote and this is why they are for it, pure and simple. They couldn´t care less about the ones in the shadows, it´s all kabuki theater with illegals as props.

"Why even have borders?"

Ingraham had them there, because it´s not yet time for the elites to do the full-press open border propaganda campaign. However, that is what they plan. I´ve heard that very dream from south-of-the border leftists and from Libertarians. Our masters can´t admit it openly yet though. The goal is more control through a poorer and more malleable population.

Look the Democrats intend to grant as many illegal aliens as possible US citizenship either directly by way of amnesty, and if that is not politically possible at the time amnesty is granted, quietly after a few years when the smoke clears, so that they can be infused into the US electoral system. Common sence will tell you that the Democrats would not be doing that if they ever calculated that more then a small percentage of those new foreign born voters would ever vote for Republicans.

According to Tom DeWeese of the American Policy Center, “immigration” is one of several issues that are part of the “Sustainable Development/Agenda 21 blueprint.” The issues listed in a publication dated 8/6/09 are: “Cap N Trade, global warming, population control, gun control, open borders and illegal immigration, higher taxes, higher gas prices, refusal to drill American oil, education restructuring, international IDs, natural health supplement control, food control, farming ‘reform,’ control of private property, NAIS and UN Global Governance.”

"Reform" =

1. let´s not enforce the border, ever!
2. let´s give the Democrats an unbeatable electoral advantage; after all, they care about helping people!
3. let´s reward lawbreakers instead of punishing them - Democrats inform us that it is the compassionate thing to do, and we all want to be as compassionate as the Democrats, don´t we?

Good for Laura Ingraham.

What the beltway crowd wants is open borders. This would be a disaster for our current welfare state regime. Burdening the taxpayer with the cost of education, medical care, food stamps, and disability for tens of millions of new Mexican immigrants would require the public to bankrupt themselves.

Cliven Bundy marched into my life one Friday morning in January 1992 in a protest bound for a federal courthouse in Las Vegas. He held up one side of a street-width banner that asked, “Has the West been won or has the fight just begun?” To my great relief, just as Bundy promised, nearly 200 ranchers from all over the state marched behind him, yelling “Property rights!” Nearly a mile later, the marchers fell silent and filed into the courtroom where Wayne Hage of Pine Creek Ranch faced arraignment for the felony of cleaning brush out of his ditches without a

The Republican challenger to Sen. Pat Roberts, R-Kan., thinks nobody should spend 47 years in Washington. Dr. Milton Wolf, a diagnostic radiologist from the Kansas City area, on Wednesday released a television ad criticizing Roberts for his nearly five decades in the nation´s capital. "After 47 years in Washington, Kansas is a distant memory for Pat Roberts," the ad opens, before pivoting to Wolf´s daily routine as a Kansas doctor. The ad goes on to mention Wolf´s plan to "repeal and replace Obamacare," "fight wasteful spending" and pass congressional term limits. After his tenure, Wolf´s ad promises, he´ll return home to Kansas.

I love the horn-handed Cowboys, with real, honest trail dirt on them; I love the American flags; I love the sagebrush; and I love the rebellion-- as in civil, non-violent disobedience. And the question now is, where does this go? Rebellion typically starts after a period of lassitude and hopelessness in the face of overwhelming power.

In the movie Ben-Hur, Charlton Heston was wrongly accused by government and sentenced to life in prison/slavery. Soldiers marched chained Heston along with other prisoners through the desert without food or water. Heston collapsed, unable to take another step. Jesus was passing by with a small caravan. He walked over and gave Heston a drink of water, which gave Heston the strength to continue. Note: Heston´s unfair ordeal was not over. He would endure much before his release and ultimate victory at the end of the movie. I view the Obama administration’s BLM retreat from bullying rancher Cliven Bundy and the patriots

The fact that this situation could have been pulled from the script of the 1974 movie Chinatown or any of the Godfather movies is well known and must be exposed, but not before immediate action is taken to assure the preservation of life and liberty.

Two of Nevada’s top elected leaders are riding to the rescue of a rancher whose decades-long range war with the federal government has reached a boiling point in recent days. The federal Bureau of Land Management has surrounded the Clark County ranch of Cliven Bundy with armed officers, helicopters and four-wheel drive vehicles. Last week, they began seizing cattle found grazing on adjacent federal lands in violation of a law meant to protect an endangered desert tortoise. “No cow justifies the atmosphere of intimidation which currently exists nor the limitation of constitutional rights that are sacred to all Nevadans.”

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

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.

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer.

He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances.
