Taxes, no; migrants, maybe
Economist Magazine, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 5/24/2014 2:59:46 PM

Something curious is happening on the right of American politics: immigration is losing its potency as a driver of voter anger. Just ask Chris McDaniel, a Mississippi Republican who represents the Tea Party’s last, best hope of toppling an establishment grandee in 2014. Mr McDaniel hopes that grassroots Republicans will ditch Senator Thad Cochran, a four-decade Washington veteran, and instead choose him as the party’s Senate candidate for mid-term elections in November. Fiery conservative groups have spent heavily on pro-McDaniel TV ads. Mr McDaniel, a member of the state legislature, has been endorsed by Sarah Palin,

Comments:
Betrayal this late in the game is bad. I hope the "source" is wrong. BTW, migrants should be different as thy are issued green card to work in the fields. The illegals aliens that mix in, aren´t. AMNESTY: DEFINITELY NO!

I wonder whether this article was written in cooperation with the Chamber of Commerce?

Consider the source. I read The Economist for over 30 years. It went to the Dark Side at least a decade ago.

This is true however: FTA: Mr Cochran is hardly a migrant-hugger: he has opposed every broad immigration reform sent to the Senate in his time.

Just because Cochran doesn´t care to get tangled up in "Pledge Politics" doesn´t make him the John McCain of the South. Regardless, given the antics of one or more of McDaniel´s supporters and the polls, it seems that this race is over.

Liberals back Democrats, and Democrats need Mexican votes to take complete control of the government.

FTA:"And if even Republican primary voters in Mississippi are not spitting with fury about migrants, that suggests that a big, bipartisan immigration reform is actually possible. If Congressional leaders balk again, shame on them."

Wow: what a "stretch"! I´m with #1 and #2 on this. Watch priorities turn on a dime, should "reform" (aka amnesty) make headway in Congress.

A guestworker visa program coupled with tight border controls (including biometric IDs, and tracking entry and exit via a secure database) maybe - even Reagan supported that - but no path to citizenship other than what is already legally provided. Any violation must permanently disqualify the visa holder.

Perhaps.

But anything that smacks of amnesty will light a fire. Fury will ensue.

#4, I think also that if when guest worker visa runs out, if they don´t go home, they forfeit all rights to be a guest worker EVER AGAIN of attain legal American residency. Once visa runs out, good stamps and all govt. help ceases too. Strong airtight enforcement mechanisms and no neverending "appeals" either.

I agree, #4. Look at what just happened in the UK...UKIP, the anti-immigration and true conservative party just won big. Now the Tory PM is having a new law drafted to cut down the unfettered immigration that has been swamping the UK with terrorists from the ME and others from poor countries. Romanians, Poles, Bulgarians have been pouring in since Britain joined the EU. It´s been a disaster for the country and created a simmering anger at both the Conservative and Labor parties.

A sleeping giant has been awakened in Britain. Maybe it will happen here.

The big money behind Thad Cochran is open borders. The chicken magnate supposedly can only get illegal immigrants to work in his chicken slaughter houses. So says Barbour. Thad Cochran is a big backer of the multi-trillion dollar global warming cartel via his longtime support of ethanol which has long since been proven the cause of mass starvation of the world´s poorest. He had a 100 percent score on ethanol in 2002. In 2007 he broke with most GOP and passed Bush´s bill that expanded ethanol mandates and worse. The bill mandated the EPA to run a non-public ethanol credit commodity trading market. This was tailor made to harm this country, was a magnet for millions in fraud, led to many court trials, taxpayer money spent tracking down criminal traders, added at least ten cents per gallon to gas at the pump, and made the environment worse. Knowingly inflicting this kind of damage on the world should limit Cochran to the 42 years he´s already had at the trough. Not one more day.

It was called the wave of the future – the recently tapped U.S. ambassador to Switzerland was sworn in last month with her hand not on a paper Bible but on top of a Kindle. Techies called it revolutionary and applauded Suzi Levine for making history. But she wasn’t the only one who went high-tech when she took the oath of office. A county executive from Long Island, N.Y., used the Bible app on an iPad to be sworn in last year and a few months ago a group of firefighters from New Jersey huddled around a Kindle Bible when they took their oath. But the movement has drawn concern from some in the religious community who are reluctant

On Monday, Illinois became the first state to sue so-called debt settlement companies for fraudulent student loan practices. The New York Times reports that two companies, Broadsword Student Advantage and First American Tax Defense, were sued for charging customers for debt assistance they never received. Debt settlement companies, which consumers pay for help consolidating their loans and decreasing their monthly payments, have long had a reputation for taking advantage of desperate borrowers eager for a quick fix. With Americans now holding $1.2 trillion in outstanding student loans, college grads appear to be

The border crisis —
Rick Perry’s fight-or-flight moment

What’s transpiring on the Texas-Mexico border could turn out to be an even bigger story than many of us realize. What could be bigger than a humanitarian crisis, with thousands of children caught in the cross-fire between lawless Latin American regimes and the lawless regime in our White House? What could be bigger than potentially allowing scores of criminals and other ne’er-do-wells to use these children as human shields that allow them to enter our country illegally? How about the opening salvo in America’s next major political realignment? Conventional wisdom says the story here is President Obama’s dereliction of

The White House is asking Rep. Darrell Issa to withdraw a subpoena of a senior adviser to President Barack Obama and is offering instead to a hold a private briefing on activities in the administration’s political affairs office. In a letter sent Monday, White House Counsel W. Neil Eggleston offered to brief Issa, a California Republican who chairs the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, on the role of the the Office of Political Strategy and Outreach on Tuesday. That’s one day before the office’s director, David Simas, is under subpoena to testify on potential violations of the Hatch Act.

York, UK: The Church of England overcame bitter divisions on Monday to vote in favour of allowing female bishops for the first time in its nearly 500-year history. The decision reverses a previous shock rejection in 2012 and comes after intensive diplomacy by Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby. Cheers erupted in the hall at the Church of England General Synod in York, northern England, as the measure passed. The first women bishops could now be appointed before the end of the year. The Church of England is the mother church of the global Anglican Communion, followed by some 80 million people in over 165 countries.

Qatar plans to buy US Patriot missile batteries and Apache attack helicopters in an arms deal worth about $11 billion, senior Pentagon officials said Monday. The sale would provide Qatar with roughly ten radars and 34 launchers for Patriot systems designed to knock out incoming missiles, as well as 24 Apache helicopters and Javelin anti-tank missiles. Qatar was investing in missile defense systems to counter the threat across the Gulf from Iran, which has built up its missile arsenal, officials said. Qatar's minister of state for defense, Major General Hamad bin Ali al-Attiyah, committed to the sale in a signing ceremony Monday in Washington after talks

According to a statement given to Petah Tikvah magistrates court near Tel Aviv, a 29-year-old man and two minors aged 17 are to be charged on counts of murder, kidnapping with intent to murder, arson and attempted arson, all committed "on racist-nationalistic grounds," police said.

State governors from both parties have reacted cooly to efforts by the Obama administration to gain their support for placing thousands of unaccompanied Central American children with friends or family members. Health and Human Services Secretary Sylvia Matthews Burwell met privately with dozens of governors Sunday at the National Governors Association summer meeting in Nashville. According to those who attended the meeting, the governors expressed particular concerns about the costs to states, including that of providing public education for the children. Burwell left the meeting through a side door without talking to

Obama’s ‘blank check’

Not even a week after it was offered, President Obama’s $3.7 billion plan to deal with the growing crisis along the U.S.-Mexico border appears all but dead, with Republican lawmakers Sunday decrying the administration’s “blank check” proposal and instead calling for a more targeted response centered on greater border security. Even Texas Gov. Rick Perry, personally recruited by the president to persuade Republicans to support the measure, threw cold water on the idea. He said the president doesn’t need that much money and instead should send National Guard troops to secure the border. The apparent defeat caps a whirlwind several days

Amid ongoing controversy over its scrutiny of non-profits, the Internal Revenue Service has decided it will no longer screen approximately 80% of the organizations seeking tax-exempt charitable status each year, a change that will ease the creation of small charities while doing away with a review intended to counter fraud and prevent political and other non-charitable groups from misusing the tax code. As of July 1, any group that pays a $400 fee and declares on a three-page online form that it has annual income of less than $50,000, total assets of less than $250,000 and is in compliance with the tax code requirements of a charity

Hartford, Conn. - Child protection officials say a transgender Connecticut girl who was moved from a women´s prison to a psychiatric center for children has now been relocated to a center for delinquent boys after an assault. Officials said there is no "suitable place" in the juvenile psychiatric center and placed her in the Juvenile Training School in Middletown, Connecticut´s only secure facility for delinquent boys. She is in a single room separated from the boys. The Department of Children and Families said Sunday that the girl assaulted another youth and a staffer and destroyed property the previous night.

Sarah Palin wants to impeach Barack Obama. In an op-ed article published last week, the former Republican vice presidential nominee declared that the crisis on the southern border (where young illegal immigrants are being detained) "is the last straw that makes the battered wife say, ´No, mas´." The Republican Speaker of the House, John Boehner, thinks that´s loco. (Technically, he said, "I disagree".) For Republicans hoping to avoid the kind of drama that might derail what looks to be a very good midterm election year, this kind of call is both a nuisance and a trend.

On April 1, the U.S. economy dropped a whopping 2.9 percent for the first three months of the year (no fooling). The American workforce participation rate fell to a 40-year low. One-third of people aged 18-29 have moved back in with their parents. Millions of Americans this summer will enjoy yet another “staycation”: They just can’t afford to go to the beach or the mountains, even for a week — again.

A Fox News exclusive reported this morning by Jana Winter inexplicably buried the lede. Winter reports that several dead children have been discovered “washed up along the riverbank” of the Rio Grande, but fails to note that there have been no reports by the Obama administration on this. This indicates a pattern of covering up dead illegal alien kids by the Obama administration. It was two weeks before news was reported on the sole child death acknowledged by the Obama administration, Gilberto Ramos, a 15 year-old boy from Guatemala whose body was found in the Texas brush dead from the

The “ugly American” has gotten a lot uglier over the past few weeks, from the streets of California to the halls of Congress and state houses around the country. A growing number of our fellow Americans have taken on grotesque features, in looks and sounds, in reaction to the thousands of children from Central America who have crossed our borders as they flee poverty and violence in hope for something better. Sadly, the arrival of these youngsters has been greeted by flag-waving, sign-carrying, Bible-thumping and Constitution-quoting citizens demanding that they not be received here and that they be returned immediately to their
