Quotes of the day

President Obama said there is one thing he absolutely won’t compromise on in immigration reform: a pathway to citizenship. But as for what he would be willing to give up, he won’t say…

The president praised the bill produced by the Gang of Eight as a “good piece of work” that doesn’t include everything Obama would have wanted but stiil meets his “core requirements,” which include provisions to crack down on companies who hire illegal immigrants, streamline legal immigration, and strengthen border security as well as to create the pathway.

“If those components are there, then I would expect that not only would I be supportive, but also I think we can get it through the House,” he said. “It’s the right thing to do, it’s the smart thing to do.”

***

Since my colleagues and I introduced immigration legislation, intense public scrutiny has helped identify shortcomings and unintended consequences that need to be addressed. Many concerned citizens have gone a step further and offered specific ideas to improve it. This kind of constructive criticism is a positive force that should always be welcomed in the political process…

For those who have suggested that the border security triggers outlined in the Senate bill aren’t strong enough, we now have a chance to strengthen them. For those who expressed concerns about giving the federal government too much discretionary power through waivers and exceptions in applying different aspects of the law, we have a chance to make clear exactly how the executive branch must enforce this immigration law and what the consequences are if it doesn’t. For those concerned about the cost of immigration to American taxpayers, we have a chance to make sure the bill lives up to its promise that today’s illegal immigrants are not eligible for federal benefits.

And for those who believe the road ahead for illegal immigrants is too generous or lenient, Congress will have a chance to make it tougher, yet still realistic. No one has a right to violate the immigration laws and remain here with impunity. Finding a sensible way to resolve our illegal-immigration problem must include penalties that show the rest of the world that it really is cheaper, easier and faster to immigrate to the U.S. the right way…

The immigration-reform bill in the Senate is a solid starting point for solving this problem, and I believe it can be made even better as Congress begins to actively work on it in committee next week. But defeating it without offering an alternative cannot be the conservative position on immigration reform. That would leave the issue entirely in the hands of President Obama and leave in place the disastrous status quo.

***

The irony in all this, of course, is that most of the top Republicans favor a Gang of 8 plan, and it is warmly embraced by fiscal, social and national security conservatives. That’s because there is little conservative virtue in opposing a plan that is good for the economy, embodies religious values and helps secure the border, in contrast to the current de facto amnesty situation.

Legitimate opponents of the legislation would be wise to denounce the kooks on their side but also to recognize that a good deal of the conservative movement disagrees with them. Their opposition is not all that ”conservative,” although it does bespeak a lack of confidence in the ability of conservatives to appeal (as George W. Bush did) to Hispanic voters.

***

After failing to con conservatives into thinking the “Gang of 8″ bill had “tough multiple enforcement triggers,”** Sen. Marco Rubio is vowing to support changes in the legislation he allegedly negotiated and repeatedly defended. (“Sen. Rubio Says Immigration Bill Needs Stronger Border Provisions to Pass Senate.”) This is not a sign Rubio has had success in his role as Ambassador of Amnesty.

Will Democrats (or even the three other GOP members of the “Gang”) go along with rewriting the bill’s carefully constructed framework of deception, in which the border security ‘triggers,” as amnesty lobbyist Frank Sharry admitted, “are based on developing plans and spending money, not on reaching [the target level of] effectiveness, which is really quite clever”? Will they modify the “path to citizenship,” the core of the bill, as Rubio also suggests? I suspect not…

When Democrats fail to significantly toughen the bill, will Sen. Rubio go along with it anyway? That one’s easy: Yes.

***

Ambassador of Amnesty Marco Rubio argues on Powerline–or rather, “Marco Rubio” argues, since the words are attributed only to his “office”**–that critics overstate the number of new immigrants who would be added by his legalization bill:

“There are approximately 11 million illegals currently in the US, and many of them won’t be eligible for legalization (because they haven’t been here long enough, don’t pass background checks, can’t afford the fines, etc.) and will have to be deported. [E.A]”

Really? We’re going to deport a significant chunk of the 11 million–and not just because they’ve arrived since 2011 (the cutoff), but because they don’t scratch together enough money (initially, $1,000) for fines? Would Sen. Schumer and Cecilia Munoz go along with this characterization of the legislation? Answer: no. It’s not going to happen. Rubio–and his “office”–are cementing his new national reputation as a dissembler

And how are these mass deportations going to help Republicans woo Latino voters?

***

So any rational immigration reform that respected the interests of the American people would attempt to reorient present policy. Instead, the Gang of Eight’s bill will cement it, and accelerate it. According to Numbers USA, if the immigration bill passed, it would increase the legal population of the United States by 33 million in its first decade. That figure includes 11.7 million amnestied illegals and their children, plus 17 million family members imported through chain migration, with a few software designers on business visas to round out the numbers.

Thirty-three million is like importing the entire population of Canada . . . oh, wait, we did that shtick three paragraphs ago. Okay, if you’re black, look at it this way: The demographic clout it took you guys four centuries to amass can now be accomplished overnight at a stroke of Chuck Schumer’s and Lindsey Graham’s pens. And, if you belong to the 40 percent of Americans who’ll be encountering many of these “chain migrants” in the application line for low-skilled service jobs, isn’t it great to know that in this gangbusters economy you’re going to have to pedal even faster just to go nowhere?

Speaking of demographic clout, the main reason for not importing 33 million Canadians is that they’re supposedly a bunch of liberal pantywaists and the Republican party would never be elected to anything ever again. But fortunately 33 million Latin Americans are, as we’ve been assured time and again by Charles Krauthammer and other eminent voices, “a natural conservative constituency” — which I think translates into Spanish as “una parte del electorado conservador natural.” I Googled this phrase and it got no hits, so perhaps Dr. Krauthammer got lost in translation. But I’ll take his word for it that, once America assumes the demographics of California, the Republican party will be unstoppable.

***

[W]hat if Romney had been able to reach a mind-blowing 70 percent of the Hispanic vote? Surely that would have meant victory, right? No, it wouldn’t. Romney still would have lost, although by the narrowest of electoral margins, 270 to 268. (Under that scenario, Romney would have won the popular vote but lost in the Electoral College; he could have racked up huge numbers of Hispanic votes in California, New York and Texas, for example, and not changed the results in those states.)…

Everyone knows the Hispanic vote will grow in the future. But if 2012 voting patterns remain the same — whites voting in lower numbers but about 60 percent for Republicans, blacks and Asians turning out in large numbers and voting 90-plus percent and 70-plus percent, respectively, for Democrats — Republicans will have to win an astonishingly high percentage of the Hispanic vote to capture the White House.

It is simply not reasonable to believe there is something the GOP can do — pass immigration reform, juice up voter-outreach efforts — that will create that result.

***

No doubt, the status quo makes it easier for Democrats to portray Republicans as anti-Hispanic and is a barrier to Republicans winning over this fast-growing demographic. On the other hand, Democrats will portray Republicans as anti-Hispanic no matter what, and the immigration bill, should it become law, would almost certainly create more Democratic voters than Republican ones. A Pew poll published last year found that while Hispanics are more pro-life than the national average, they’re more likely to identify as liberal than the general public. Also, when asked for a preference between a bigger government with more services or a smaller government with fewer services, 41 percent of the country as a whole favored bigger government, but 75 percent of Hispanics did. Among first generation Hispanics, 81 percent favored bigger government — or roughly double the national average, compared with just 12 percent who favored smaller government.

When it comes to the politics of immigration, Republicans are screwed either way. So they may as well ignore the politics and vote for their preferred policy outcomes.

In Mexico, I also talked about immigration reform, because that’s an important issue that affects both our countries.

The truth is, right now, our border with Mexico is more secure than it’s been in years. We’ve put more boots on that border than at any time in our history, and illegal crossings are down by nearly 80 percent from their peak in 2000. But we’ve got more to do – not just to secure the border but to fix an immigration system that is badly broken.

In recent weeks, we’ve seen a commonsense immigration reform bill introduced in the Senate. This bill is a compromise, which means that nobody got everything they wanted – including me. But it’s largely consistent with the principles I’ve laid out from the beginning.

What borders?

Electrongod on May 4, 2013 at 8:34 PM

Today we must all be aware that political expediency and latino ethnicity takes precedence over rule of law and constitutional procedure. However you say – WTF ! – what does this mean… in relation to the tabulation whereby we must once again realize that the great reconquesta story is now being rehearsed before our very eyes, in the rise of Marco Rubio… indicating that only a two-faced … I mean a bi-faced … I mean a bi-polar … I mean a bi-lingual hombre can receive…the award for reconquesta, unlike Kenyan Hussein Obama whose reconquesta plans don’t drink water.

Amigos – comrades – muchachos – friends, we are gathered here as an edifice of the great glory that is now vanishing and the intuitive feeling, based on the assumption as Mencken once said, “He who underestimates the American public will never go broke.” This is merely a small indication to behold and to perceive that which has gone way into the behind and to that which might project .. I mean go forward … out of the mouth … i mean .. the future…we’ve got to rip up the constitution so we can rip down those outdated borders! This is the main deterrent upon which we have gathered our strength and all the others who say, “What the hell did that get?” – We don’t know.

And as Miller once said in one of his great novels- what did he … that language is only necessary when bilingual communication is endangered. And you sit there bewildered, and Pinter who went further said “It is not the lack of communication, but fear of communication.” That’s what the damn thing is that we fear – communication – especially all the Spanish communication that’s even on a box of Wheaties now. Damn it! But we have no paranoia, and through all this Senator McCain has attained, and has created for himself serenity, and it is only his insanity that has kept him alive in his senility.

Senors y Senoritas, Ladies and Gentlemen. The time will come when a first world America will outlive its usefulness. Marx, either Groucho or Karl, I can’t remember which, maybe it was both or maybe it was Harpo, once said that America is the opiate of the people. I say that when America outlives its usefulness and becomes a majority latino nation , then opium…will be the opiate…Ahh that’s not a bad idea… we are going to need that badly especially when the booze runs out …

And the completely unbiased and bi-partisan panel, has determined to give the grand prize to Marco Rubio for his EARNESTY’S RAINBOW. Now EARNESTY’S RAINBOW is a token of this man’s genius…he told me so himself and repeatedly …that he could change perceptions by calling his plan for knocking down those pesky borders EARNESTY …in other words, he could have been more specific, but rather than allude to an articulation of the mundane, he has come to the conclusion that brevity is the importance of our nation’s shallow first world existence. God damn!

Marco Rubio’s . EARNESTY’S RAINBOW – is a small contribution to a certain degree, since there are over seven billion people in the world today. 450 of them … million live in the United States and Mexico which is a very, very small amount compared to those who will be miserable and dying elsewhere…Well, I say that you will be on the road to new horizons, for we who live in a society where citizenship is a commodity and a politician can become a TV personality, it’s not easy to conform if you have any morality…I, I, I said that myself many years ago…

But I do want to thank la Raza…I mean the RNC … I mean the DNC and it’s subsidiary the RNC, the organization for the $1,000 in affirmative action latino scholarships they’ve given out…tonight they took in over $4,000,000, but they do have expenses for their consultants you know, and I think that I have another appointment. I would like to stay here, but for the sake of brevity I, I must leave. I do want to thank you, and I want to thank Marco Rubio – acting el Presidenta of la Raza Mexiamerica and also Mr. Obama – acting Pharaoh and Drone Commander of the World – and also I want to thank Professor Irwin Corey and thank you. …

You have no chance any more GRINGOS. None at all. Your empty strutting peacock, your el Presidente is now ruling like a King and is the commander of your armed forces with all your generals now appointed by him and now my boss owns him. He had to pay him muchos dolares as he is very greedy man and does not seem to think that he can ever have too much money. And don’t think Jeb Bush and John McCain and Karl Rove and Marco Rubio and Jeff Flake came cheap either. They almost bankrupt my boss You are now tostada quemada. What on Earth were you thinking when you elected a traidor as your el Presidente? Were you all completely drunk? Way too much Tequila on election day? And two times for God’s sake!!!? Oh well, your loss and our gain. And now Senor Rubio is even going to put up a Big Gate for us, maybe we wasted a lot of money!

Once we get our earnesty from our dear amigo Marco, we will all come to your country. We will all have at least 10 ninos with mucho tax credits from you Gringo smucks and in a generation or two we will overwhelm and deport most of you Gringos! We will start with Arizona after your el Presidente moves federal troops there to arrest their governor and Joe Arpaio and hand the deed over to us and then we will move rapido from there all across the rest of your 57 states to take them over too. Some of you, if you learn Spanish real well, we might let you stay to pick our lettuce or mow our lawns or take care of OUR children in what used to be your houses. Those who don’t learn Spanish will be deported to Alaska. That is until Al Gore’s global warming heats things up and we want Alaska too, then we will deport you all to New Orleans. It will probably all be under water by then anyway.

So give it up and LEARN SPANISH! You should probably all buy Mexican flags too and fly them in your front yard and on your pickup trucks. If you already have an American flag there it is alright if you keep it, as long as you fly it upside down and below our great Mexican flag. Now repeat after me – I pledge allegiance to the flag of the Estados Unidos del Mucho Grande Mexico, and to the Republic for which it use to stand, one nation under us, with everything for us, and nothing anymore for you except to pay mucho mucho mucho more taxes for our tax credits. And remember Gringos, APRENDER EL ESPANOL!!!

Rubio is a Trojan Horse to Mexicanate America and an exceedingly obvious one. And his foreign policy views (we must support the “rebels”!) are those of a crackpot.

VorDaj on May 4, 2013 at 8:44 PM

When I look at Marco Rubio, now all I see is the face of John McCain looking back at me and I can almost hear, “My friends, my friends …” coming from his mendacious mouth. It has become very clear that Rubio is The Man Who Never Was. He’s just a conman with a no longer very convincing con, so teenage girls you can get over your crush on him and now would be a good time.

Since Marco Rubio is now calling amnesty, “earnesty”, I am wondering when he will officially/legally change his name from Marco Rubio to Marco Orwell. He certainly should. Perhaps in the next Batman movie, as the series gets ever more worn out, he can play a composite of the Joker and Two-Face. And since Rubio is Spanish for Blond, maybe he will wear a blood wig as he goes about his quest with Obama Bain for the extinction of the Republic.

i think they are voting their policy preferences (or at least those of their paymasters in Corporate America)

what we need is to vote for what their constituencies want…and really what they want, not some push marketing focus group in which they derive the messages needed to ‘sell’ the suckers whatever they want.

we need Sessions, et al. to continue getting the truth out. The more the truth the less Barbour/McCain can shill for KFC etc.

He’s a lying Marxist POS. How is it possible that there are people who still haven’t figured this out yet??

You want to know what he’s willing to give up? Something about 10 years down the road. He’ll put on his serious face and maybe even move his finger in the air, and promise it’ll happen. Just trust him one more time….and then another..and then another.

Rubio also helped bring about Benghazi 9/11.

Weekly Standard (March 31, 2011): Senator Marco Rubio offered his full-throated support Wednesday for the U.S. intervention in Libya and called on President Barack Obama to be clear that regime change is the objective of America’s involvement. In an interview yesterday afternoon, Rubio said that failing to remove Libyan leader Muammar Qaddafi, after Obama publicly called for him to go, would have grave consequences for America’s reputation in the region and in the world. Last night, Rubio sent a letter to Harry Reid and Mitch McConnell, Democratic and Republican leaders in the Senate, calling for Congress to affirm Obama’s policy by authorizing the use of the military force in Libya and to make explicit the goal of regime change. “This resolution should also state that removing Moamar Qadhafi from power is in our national interest and therefore should authorize the President to accomplish this goal. To that end, the resolution should urge the President to immediately recognize the Interim Transitional National Council as the legitimate government in Libya.”

VorDaj on May 4, 2013 at 8:50 PM

Obama and Rubio, if not stopped, will be to America what Hitler and Stalin were to Poland in 1939, but there will be no one to save America. The “Comprehensive Plan to Destroy America Bill” will be their version of the Molotov–Ribbentrop Pact.

VorDaj on May 4, 2013 at 8:52 PM

This bill is a piece of crap and everybody knows it. To try to shove it down our throats by claiming it does things it doesn’t do is just political career ending. I thought Rubio was smarter than this.

gophergirl on May 4, 2013 at 8:54 PM

Rubio dutifully mouths the old mendacious “long and arduous path to citizenship”, wink-wink, smirk-smirk, oh the pain and suffering, oh the humanity, but who would believe him? In any case if their status is legalized, why would they even want full citizenship? This is like a ‘father’ saying “You can have all the sex with my daughter you want, any and all of you, but for me to give you her hand in marriage, well I’m going to make that very difficult for you”. This ‘Father’ Rubio, who would treat his own country like this, is not a very talented shyster at all, just a rank amateur and poor player, and certainly no Bill Clinton, except in his basic lack of honesty and honor.

VorDaj on May 4, 2013 at 8:55 PM

My father said that a forked tongued chief called Rubio, because he was a good talker, would take the lead in the council, and sell nearly all the country and it’s birth right. My father had sharper eyes than the rest of our people. A man who would not love the land of his father’s grave is worse than a rattlesnake.

I love this about you. :) THIS is the part of you no troll will ever get to see. You instinctively wanted to know exactly what and where. You would have remarked my unremarked post. :)

With all the steely skin and sword wielding you do, not many people know about the soft and chewy nougat inside. I love your nougat.

. . . probably a British thing. French girls are filled with cheese.

Thanks Axe. I sometimes post thinking “I wonder what people will think of this”..and nothing. I fear it may be the wine or the occasional single malt…….or the IPA that may have me think I have something to say when I don’t! Some nights are like that for me.

Early take on the great pre-mixed frozen Pina’ Colada taste off:

-All are about 2 bucks.
Parrot Bay – 10oz. 5% alcohol
Mylar bag, tear off top.
Top don’t tear, used scissors
Smooth, just a hint of kick, not too bad.
-

Dangit, forgot the names all ready…
-

Daily’s – 10oz. 5% alcohol
Mylar bag, tear off top

-
Cordina – 12oz. 6% alcohol
made in New orleans – home of the daiquiri shops. If you never had a froxen daiquiri, from a drive thru, you missed out.
cool telescoping straw
plastic bag container, may be mylar, screw top

The truth is, right now, our border with Mexico is more secure than it’s been in years. We’ve put more boots on that border than at any time in our history, and illegal crossings are down by nearly 80 percent from their peak in 2000. But we’ve got more to do – not just to secure the border but to fix an immigration system that is badly broken.

It is amazing that his nose doesn’t grow every time he lies. Maybe, in Kenya, it’s the ears that grow.

The latest HAL bust…

Old & Busted:

‘Lololol. You are fraud and you know it. The difference between you and most of the other irrelevant posters here is that they at least fight their battles without posting pity articles on their blogs about how ONE UPPEREASTSIDE LIB hurt their girly feelings.’

‘Hope your tea party compadres heed your advice Jazz. THOSE OF US WHO CALL NW WASHINGTON DC HOME definitely do not want this in our backyard.’

So, HAL, you moved in the last 3 days?

To use your words: ‘YOU ARE (A) FRAUD.’

Dude thinks everyone else is as stupid as he is.

This, in a nutshell

Jackalope on May 4, 2013 at 10:08 PM

i knew that facebook was into ads supporting Lindsey…i mean that’s pretty cynical for a leftist outfit

but this NYT really details the bipartisan machine that stands for wholesale immigration…well, ‘reform’. Sessions will be one folk hero if he blocks this.

the trade of is this. The Tech Left, deep deep deep pockets wants Engineers….and they want them in the US. Ok, I get that. So they are totally, happily, willing to sink the working class in order to get that.

This is the current state of America…state run capitalism, crony capitalism…whatever you want to call it. The Left has the golden keys. Just like the magic of Pharma in obama.care…exactly the same thing. Different players…Google, FB etc.

Oh…and they got buckets full of republicans lobbing for this. If you are a former office holder you are in a sweet sweet spot. Big $$$$$$$$$ just to lobby for whatever the left wants…oh, and some ccrporation or another will win big…invest a few Million…and get big returns…like betting on the horses…you win every time.

Like I say sweet.

http://www.nytimes.com/2013/05/05/us/politics/tech-firms-take-lead-in-lobbying-on-immigration.html?pagewanted=all

well…sweet for them…ugly for the rest of us

(btw…Pat Buchanan has been right about a lot of things over the last 25 years…I’m beginning to think that his anti NAFTA, etc. was correct. Big business….seriously?…does NOT care. If we wind up like Buenas Aires with miles and miles of slums, that’s ok…they’ll be in their compounds with guards)

Be patient, science takes time.

Mostly finished Parrot Bay, prepping Daily’s, saving what I think will be the best for last.

Burns still there. Why, did you think they went some where?

As for feeling, I don’t drink much these days. What do you think?

Heh, only had to correct thre missspellings.

What more needs to be said than ‘if the Democrats are pushing something, it’s bad for our country’? Rubio et al should be fighting them, it’s like they have Stockholm Syndrome or something.
