O’Reilly Challenges Ingraham:
Your ‘Draconian’ Immigration
Plan Would Tank GOP

Mediaite, by Josh Feldman

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 7/2/2014 9:44:07 PM

Laura Ingraham told Bill O’Reilly her immigration plan tonight, which includes deportation of every illegal immigrant in the country by the thousands, not only sounds “draconian,” but would have significant negative consequences for the Republican party in the near political future. He said, “I do believe that if you do have mass deportations and, you know, the rental agreement stuff, that the Republican party would become obsolete, that you would ensure Hillary Clinton‘s election in 2016 because the demographics don’t add up.” Ingraham told O’Reilly he’s “adopting the argument of the left,” but O’Reilly insisted that “mass deportations would be draconian”

Comments:
Laura had excellent suggestions on an immigration plan. Then O´Reilly went crazy with the usual leftist talking points that the GOP would be destroyed. My head about exploded.

Why any of us still watch O´Reilly, or even Fox for that matter, is beyond me. Except for Megyn Kelly maybe.

Bill, what do you suggest is a better way??? You want to give amnesty to all the people who have been here for over 20 years? How about 5 years?? And all those children...you want them to stay? Where does it end? We gave amnesty to 4 million 26 years ago... are you now proposing we give amnesty to 10, 20 or 30 million this time? Look at what the current invasion is costing Americans with regard to jobs, government benefits for the poor and disabled, & crime rates. You have no idea what it is like living in what used to be a great state that now looks like a 3rd world country. I do. Nobody speaks English here. I am not welcome in my own home!! I am the foreigner in my own country!! If these people came legally and assimilated, we´d still have a country, culture and jobs. Even the poor cannot get help unless they are illegals. I know. The social worker told my friend that he´s not entitled to as much help as illegals are because he, as a citizen, is more likely to have family here to help him. He has NO family. Ironic too because illegals often bring tons of family over and have jobs being paid under the table. They all have new cars and nice things citizens can´t afford. And now many companies won´t hire white people or citizens. They only hire paisas. If you don´t speak fluent Spanish, don´t apply. Bill, you live in an ivory tower. You don´t know. Stop the propaganda & false rhetoric. We need to take back our country and stop the invasion.

#6 Amen. Many of us live in a sea of brown who refuse to assimilate or become citizens.
If you have been here 20 years and you can´t learn to speak English or become a citizen, just leave.

It would be far cheaper to deport all of them than pay for cradle to grave welfare.
Let US not forget how many get tax refunds while you pay.

Lock down the border and start with exporting the prisons. Once those are empty, offer the illegals 180 days of safe passage back to their homeland. After 180 days, load ´em up and haul ´em out.

You can´t cure a cancer by leaving it in, you have to cut it out, before healing can begin. Once it´s gone, then think about what immigration levels we need and can sustain.

For the Republican Party it really does not make any difference if the illegal aliens are forced out, or if they are all granted amnesty.

If the illegal aliens are kicked out, O´Reilly claims that the backlash from current US voters who love illegal aliens will tank the Republicans, maybe so, maybe not.

But one thing is for sure, if 20 million or so illegal aliens are granted amnesty in accordance with the current liberal Democrat amnesty proposal, they then get to bring unlimited numbers of their foreign family members here, with all put on a special government financed path to citizenship where they will be instructed in citizenship classes by the very liberal ethnic and immigrant rights groups and community organizing groups allied to the liberal Democrats, who will have the objective of eventually registering the vast majority of those "new Americans" as Democrat voters.

Once that happens the Democrats will attain tens of millions of new socialist oriented foreign born voters and there will be no question that the Republican Party will tank to the point where the Republicans will be unable to win future presidential elections. A knowledge of basic arithmetic will tell you that.

So the Republicans have a choice, they can take their chances with current American voters by effectively enforcing the immigration laws, or wait until the Democrats grant amnesty to, and eventually register enough new ex-illegal alien foreign born socialist oriented voters with the object of pushing the Republicans into political oblivion.

O´Reilly has become a total self-aggrandizing buffoon and Democrat butt-kisser. He clearly panders to and mollifies criticisms of Obama, Hillary, and other major Democrats because he desperately wants them to come on to his program for exclusive interviews. I can no longer stand to watch him.

And frankly, I contend that deportation of illegals will dramatically INCREASE votes for Republicans. Why? Well, simply because there will be about 10,000,000 fewer illegal Democrat voters left to steal our elections. Refute that, fake Harvard dude.

What a self aggrandizing narcissistic blowhard O´Really has become. The dope has become nothing but an Obummer tail kisser and his show hasn´t been watched in my house since Michelle Malkin subbed for him. His stupid dim talking points about immigration tanking the GOP are jus that stupid. Laura Ingraham tried to school the moron but as usual Billy O tries to over talk guests that are way smarter than him. Except when he has Geraldo on then it´s just TWO blowhards sucking up all of the oxygen in then room. I hope that Megyn Kelly´s show continues to beat him in the ratings. No wonder Rush Limbaugh calls him the Ted Baxter of TV. Very funny. Hey Bill pick up on line 1 your buddy Oblamo is calling to schedule another slobberfest, er ah I mean interview.

The Draconian thing is to do what we are doing. Is there no doubt that OReilly is an idiot and a Liberal? Only Liberals give out stupid advice like how the Republican Party is hurting itself for...........(you fill in the blank). But then the Republicans go ahead and take the advice given. Stupid Party.

I have no problem with deporting every single illegal. They aren´t called illegals for nothing.

If you thought last winter was bad, get ready for a potentially worse winter in parts of the country this year. But another record-setting winter could mean more than higher heating bills and snow fights. Harsh winter weather combined with coal-fired power plant closings could spell trouble for many households across the country who will desperately need to keep the lights and heat on this winter.

Taxpayer-funded film festivals

A federal agency is spending hundreds of thousands of dollars every year to support film festivals that showcase movies that some Americans might find offensive. Decapitated heads, public urination and sexual promiscuity are among the subjects explored on the big screen of events underwritten with U.S. taxpayers’ money. The National Endowment for the Arts directly funded at least 39 film festivals last fiscal year at a cost to taxpayers of $845,000. That doesn’t include the dozens of other festivals funded by federal dollars funneled through state and local arts agencies. Among the films featured at taxpayer-subsidized film festivals were “Wawd Ahp,”

LOS ANGELES – Los Angeles is considering turning voting ballots into lottery tickets. With fewer than a fourth of voters showing up for recent local elections, the city´s Ethics Commission voted unanimously Thursday to recommend that the City Council consider a cash-prize drawing as an incentive to vote. Commission President Nathan Hochman suggests the prizes could be $25,000 or $50,000, saying a pilot program should be used first to find out the number and size of prizes that would bump up turnout. The Los Angeles Times reports (http://lat.ms/1uV1Ekw) that federal law prohibits payment for voting, but Ethics Commissioner Jessica Levinson says that statute

WILMINGTON, Del. -- Former Vice President Al Gore is suing Al Jazeera, saying it´s withholding money promised from sale of Current TV. Al Jazeera purchased Current TV, its broadcast contracts and subcribers in January 2013 for over $500 million. The acquisition of Current TV, co-founded by Gore in 2005, allowed Al Jazeera to air Al Jazeera America in 43 million homes across the U.S. Since its launch, the cable news network has drawn praise for its ability to break stories objectively and its willingness to cover issues while willfully ignoring the spin of talking points and sound-bites.

Why Is Harvey Weinstein Backing Pro-Life,
Anti-Nanny State Film ´The Giver´

The Giver offers a pro-life message as well as a warning of what nanny state policies could lead. So why is Harvey Weinstein, one of Hollywood’s most prominent liberals, teaming up with Walden Media to bring Lois Lowry´s story to movie houses? The Giver producer Chip Flaherty says Lowry’s tale represents a cultural moment when both the left and the right can join together. The film’s dystopian future may pack conservative messages, but it also pays tribute to passion, creativity and the messy business of personal freedom. Flaherty recalls how Weinstein, out promoting the film earlier this week, told talk radio star Laura

With wars raging in the Middle East, and Russia still threatening Ukraine, the problem of anti-Americanism in Latin America has been put on the back burner. But since Secretary of State John Kerry declared last year that the Monroe Doctrine was dead, Vladimir Putin of Russia has traveled to Brazil, Argentina, Nicaragua and Cuba. This doesn’t seem like an accident. The Obama administration is inviting aggression against the U.S. During the Cold War, Cuba hosted Soviet nuclear missiles targeting the U.S., and the Castro regime sponsored terrorism on American soil carried out by

FERGUSON, Mo. — The friend who was with Michael Brown when he was shot and killed by a police officer near St. Louis over the weekend is reportedly confirming that he and Brown had taken part in the theft of cigars from a convenience store that day. That word comes from the attorney for Dorian Johnson, speaking to MSNBC. Police in Ferguson had earlier announced that Brown was suspected of taking cigars from the convenience store in what was described as a "strong-arm robbery." Brown´s family is accusing police of trying to draw attention away from the shooting.

A Travis County grand jury today indicted Gov. Rick Perry on two charges related to his effort last year to force District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg to resign after her drunken driving arrest. Grand jurors charged Perry, 63, with abuse of official capacity, a first-degree felony, and coercion of a public official. The indictments stemmed from Perry’s threat last summer to withhold $7.2 million in state money from Lehmberg’s office unless she step down – a threat he later carried out by vetoing an appropriation in the state budget. The money was earmarked for the state’s Public Integrity Unit, which is housed in Lehmberg’s office. Perry’s veto forced

President Obama said Thursday that “now is the time for healing” after a series of clashes between protesters and police over the shooting of a black teenager in Ferguson, Mo., but he also called for an open and transparent investigation “to see that justice is done” in the case. Speaking from Martha’s Vineyard, Mass., where he is on vacation, Obama said that many Americans “have been deeply disturbed” by images of violence in the St. Louis suburb following the police shooting Saturday afternoon of Michael Brown, an unarmed 18-year-old African American who was headed to technical college this week. “When something like

This is ridiculous. AUSTIN (KXAN) – A grand jury has handed up an indictment against Gov. Rick Perry in connection with the investigation into an effort to force Travis County District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg to resign. Perry wanted Lehmberg to resign because she had been busted for drunk driving. It’s not good to have a drunk driver, captured on camera abusing the officers who arrested her, heading up the Public Integrity Unit. At the center of the issue is a complaint about intimidation stemming from Perry’s threat to veto of $7.5 million in state funding to the Public Integrity Unit

Washington - Defense Department officials said late Wednesday that United States airstrikes and Kurdish fighters had broken the Islamic militants’ siege of Mount Sinjar, allowing thousands of the Yazidis trapped there to escape. An initial report from about a dozen Marines and Special Operations forces who arrived on Tuesday and spent 24 hours on the northern Iraqi mountain said that “the situation is much more manageable,” a senior Defense official said in an interview.
