When I'm wrong I say I'm wrong. This particular mistake was one that I would kick myself for missing if I were more flexible. Instead, I'll simply call out my errors and try to set a more accurate perspective. I missed it completely on President Trump and DACA. It's arguably the first time I didn't … Continue reading I was wrong on Trump and DACA
Winning a Presidential election normally requires a strong face of unity from the party and its voters. The all-important Independent vote is often swayed by the level of consolidated and consistent support from the Republican or Democratic bases. The candidate backed by the strongest unified front will be the one that gets more Independents as well … Continue reading Yes, Trump Supporters should Hold His Feet to the Fire on Immigration
One of the interesting things we have seen in our immigration debate is the corruption of language. Suddenly the words "Illegal immigration" is not allowed even though the person is clearly breaking the law thus doing something "illegal" and the law this person is breaking is the law on "immigration" Suddenly a Somali immigrant who … Continue reading “Legal Status” is to Amnesty as Purgatory is to Heaven
Yesterday we talked about and linked to the story of Twitter Hemorrhaging money but the more I think of it the more Twitter's financial and publicity problems remind me of Marco Rubio. Consider Twitter has a systemic problem of how to make money. It's business model depends on advertisers being willing to pay to get their … Continue reading Marco Rubio & Twitter have the Same Problem #freestacy
By: Pat Austin SHREVEPORT – Boy, did I ever step into it last week. I forgot how thick-skinned bloggers need to be sometimes, and how vitriolic and hateful people can be when conflicting opinions exist. My old friend William Jacobson at Legal Insurrection asked me to expound on my belief that Marco Rubio still has … Continue reading One Last Word on Rubio
By John Ruberry Mrs. Marathon Pundit and I will be attending at party tonight in Chicago's northwestern suburbs--a birthday celebration for one of her closest friends. Like my wife, her friend is an immigrant from Latvia. Both are in the country legally, Mrs. MP is a US citizen. I imagine there will be about 50 … Continue reading My evening with patriotic illegal aliens
Is it just me or does Barack Obama's justification for amnesty deriding the "hypocrisy of a system where workers who pick our fruit and make our beds never have a chance to get right with the law?" sound less like King's: "I have a dream" or LBJ's "and we shall overcome." and more like Al … Continue reading I’m Old Enough to Remember when referring to those who “Pick our fruit and Make Our Beds” was Racist
Last night the President went on TV to announce executive action on Amnesty to people who have violated immigration laws. The argument that we keep hearing is that the law is "broken" or immigration is "broken". Now I've seen power supplies broken, I've seen toys broken, I've heard of hearts "broken" but how does a … Continue reading If the Law is “Broken” it’s because people are breaking it
I had to laugh when I saw this at Twitchy: Haha, Mary Landrieu is running faux pro-life newspaper ads in Louisiana. #LAsen pic.twitter.com/dYXk0MjYGE — Jimmy (@JimmyPrinceton) November 15, 2014 It produced some interesting exchanges such as this one: @karlschott @Opinionatedcath @JimmyPrinceton the ad is designed to suggest she is pro-life but her 100% NARAL rating … Continue reading Why Obama is (Politically) Right & Mary Landrieu is wrong
As president Obama prepares to create a unilateral amnesty for who choose to violate immigration law I say why stop there? How many times have we read about people who are in prison for bogus gun charges or through tax laws that are used to go after people for political reasons. There are OSHA fines … Continue reading How about a Gun a Tax & Obamacare Amnesty?
I expect that President Obama will grant amnesty to all illegal aliens by executive order before year's end; indeed, I would be surprised if he doesn't by the end of this month. In his press conference after the Republican's "good night", Obama stated,So before the end of the year, we're going to take whatever lawful … Continue reading Why Obama should not be impeached when he grants executive amnesty
By John Ruberry President Obama's point man on "comprehensive immigration reform," which is nothing more than a pseudonym for amnesty for illegal aliens, is fellow Chicagoan Luis Gutierrez, a Democrat who represents Illinois' gerrymandered fourth congressional district. Last week Gutierrez, while speaking at a convention of the far-left La Raza (The Race) last week, said Hispanic … Continue reading Gerrymandering, identity politics, and amnesty
This was largely as I predicted, except the Silly party won Monty Python, Election night special 1969 I decided to hit the sack very early last night and slept poorly with horrible nightmares that kept waking me, when I woke up this morning I had a splitting headache. When I turned on my laptop my … Continue reading From this Moment No Pro-Amnesty Republican is Safe
This should be a watershed year for the GOP. Propaganda not withstanding the costs of Obamacare continue to increase, the international failures of the administration are on full display and as each day goes by it becomes clear that the IRS scandal has the potential to incriminate not just people in the administration, but members … Continue reading GOP You risk having no Base at all!
