Notable Quote – Ted Cruz

by Skip January 21, 2014

Concerning standing on Principle and the extremely possible negative outcome for voting for Amnesty: “If the House turns around and passes a giant amnesty deal that doesn’t secure the border and grants amnesty, they might as well go and put ‘Harry Reid for Majority Leader’ bumper stickers on the backs of their cars,” Cruz warned, […]

You know, I DO wish that Kelly was palling around with this guy before voting for illegal alien amnesty…

by Skip October 24, 2013

If she had as much of a shred of compassion for the low-skilled low-wage American worker as she does the illegal aliens that Big Biz, Big Govt, and her palie-walies Maverick and Grahamnesty, she wouldn’t be in as much hot water.  It would have been much better if Kelly Ayotte, she of the “common sense”, […]

by Skip July 28, 2013

Heh!  We Groksters can pop up almost anywhere and at anytime and Grokster Don was at the PBVRC event (unbeknownest to Jim).

Quick thought – “de facto amnesty”

by Skip June 24, 2013

From Republican US Senator Bob Corker, friend of the Gang of 8: “Doing nothing leaves a bigger problem in place,” Corker said. “It’s not like this goes away if we don’t pass a bill. It’s still there. It’s de facto amnesty.” Not really.  I almost always blame Democrats for Perversions of the English Language of […]

Extreme Pandering – really? Republicans can’t even master level 1 Pandering.

by Skip June 2, 2013

(Image H/T: Powerline) It is my belief that any movement on making the actions of illegal aliens now legal will not result in a brand new group of voters for the Republican Party no matter how much the R blowhards in the US Senate (McCain, Graham) would have us believe.  Even the fresh face of […]

Illegal Immigration Benefits Politicians, Employers, and Union Bosses, and Hurts Everyone Else

by Don February 9, 2013

Donna Brazile’s column in Wednesday’s (2/6/13) “The Citizen”,, is typical of liberal writings, an attempt to mislead the American people.  Brazile inappropriately interweaves legal and illegal immigration benefits and falsifies immigration enforcement effectiveness. Immigration laws have not been changed because the American people believe in the rule of law and in real “Fairness”.  It […]

Obama Immigration Policy, Sans Consequences?

by Rick Olson June 18, 2012

“Amnesty is a big billboard, a flashing billboard, to the rest of the world that we don’t really mean our immigration law.”  —Richard Lamm One of the realities of life is having consequences  arising from the choices of others.

by Steve MacDonald November 27, 2011

Speaker Gingrich is taking heat for statements about immigration reform, mostly from people campaigning against him. (But then, that’s what makes a big primary so much fun.) Congressman Michele Bachmann, on PBS NewsHour of all places, took it to the hole with this remark…

Governor said that your support for in-state Tuition for illegal aliens was wrong and inappropriate.  Why do you continue to support […]

The other day I needed to go to the emergency room.  Not wanting to sit there for 4 hours, I put on my  MAGIC GREEN HAT.  When I went into the E.R., I noticed that 3/4 of the people got up and left. I guess they decided that they weren’t that sick after all.  Cut […]

Do Democrats Now Love The Chamber Of Commerce?

by Steve MacDonald June 16, 2011

Remember when the Chamber of Commerce (C of C) was the lefts whipping boy? They were evil capitalists using money from “outside the country” to affect their selfish policy agenda- So what do those same leftists have to say about that same Chamber of Commerce (presumably with the same funding) leading the charge to prevent the enforcement of e-verify?

CNSNews: When asked if it was necessary to seal the southwest border to combat transnational drug gangs, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Director John Morton did not directly answer but said the border is more secure now than in the last 20 years and that crime is part of life in the United States.

Destroying The Future Of America

by Steve MacDonald October 10, 2010

Democrats continue to insist that they created jobs.  To do this they extracted trillions from our economic future in an effort to create jobs that did not yet exist–that perhaps were  not needed yet.  Looking at similar exercises, cash for clunkers–which moved car sales forward a few months but has since resulted in a collapse […]

Obama and the SEIU

by Steve MacDonald September 23, 2010

This Jan Brewer campaign video reminds us of the relationship between Obama and SEIU, and what their plan is.  To convert millions of illegal immigrants into dues paying pro democrat union voters. It is instructive.  (And Union meat-puppet Carol Seiu-Porter has to support this.)

Reid Wasn’t Looking To Repeal “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell”

by Steve MacDonald September 22, 2010

Yahoo! News has a morning headline titled "How Democrats Lost ‘Don’t Ask’ Repeal."  (You can read it here).  It focuses almost entirely on the "Don’t Ask" repeal provision and to some degree on the tactics that epitomize Ried’s Senate antics.  He takes a defense authorization bill, adds Don’t ask don’t tell, then stuffs amnesty for […]

Houghton Hears A Who

by Steve MacDonald September 13, 2010

Houghton seems to have entered the event with the idea that illegals are the only criminals in Maricopa county so she is free to preface every remark in that context. He does this to “illegal immigrants” he denies that to “illegal immigrants.” And while he probably has a large population of illegal immigrants in his jail, he oversees a county with a population four times that of the entire State of New Hampshire (plus a few more that are there illegally) so Houghton’s remarks are not just wrong they appear intentionally misleading to make a specific point.

Obama’s Department Of Injustice

by Steve MacDonald September 4, 2010

It is against the law to hire an illegal immigrant. To avoid violating that law you can use e-verify to determine status. But if you discover they are illegal by using e-verify and decide not to hire them, Eric Holder might send the civil rights division after your small business with more lawyers and the backing of the US treasury to show you who the boss is.
