Obama declares war on Arizona

Even though the administration won on three of four points in its lawsuit against AZ for the state’s criminal immigration law, Team B.O. is bent that the Court allowed the profiling aspect to remain.  So, naturally, Chairman Zero will honor the rule of law and assist AZ in any way possible.

Yeah.  Right.

The Obama administration said Monday it is suspending existing agreements with Arizona police over enforcement of federal immigration laws, and said it has issued a directive telling federal authorities to decline many of the calls reporting illegal immigrants that the Homeland Security Department may get from Arizona police.

That means police statewide can immediately begin calling to check immigration status — but federal officials are likely to reject most of those calls.

This authoritarian jack#ss has GOT to go come November.

Romney to reporter: Can we talk about economic issues, you know, the stuff that matters this year?

Video clip here (can’t embed it).  The magic comes around the 2:15 mark, when an exasperated Romney asks the reporter (who is droning on about gay marriage, in-state tuition for kids of criminal aliens, medical marijuana) if there are any “issues of significance” she’d like to discuss.

See, though, she’s just telegraphing the left’s and the MSM’s (pardon the redundancy) intention: get the ADHD public focused on shiny objects to distract them from the colossal failure of Oba-Mao’s government-controlled central planning economic policies.  Sure, jobs have hemorrhaged since he took over, more people have abandoned looking for work, gas prices have more than doubled, foreclosures have spiked, and…oooo, look, gay marriage/medical dope/dog on a car roof!

Andrea Mitchell on Tingles Matthews’ little-watched show: You know, Mitt’s ancestors were illegal aliens, right?

From Mrs. Greenspan’s cakehole:

ANDREA MITCHELL: And looking ahead to the next primary in Florida, 30 percent of the Hispanic community is Cuban-American. That’s a smaller proportion, and so the Hispanic community there is different. And they are less prone to be susceptible to Mitt Romney’s really hard line on immigration, more prone to the Newt Gingrich approach to immigration. The other interesting little fact is about the Mexican Romneys, those looking back at all of those records say that Mitt Romney should look back at the records because the Romneys that came back from Mexico to the United States, they crossed the border illegally.
That would be fascinating…except it’s not true.  Not a word of it.  Mutiple layers of fact-checking at the MSM, I see.  On the up side, it was on MSDNC…ergo nobody saw it.  😆
Nope…no liberal media bias!

Obama picked up for drunk driving

And he’s here illegally, too!  😆  Details:

A number of media outlets have already reported that an illegal immigrant from Kenya by the name of Onyango Obama, 67, was arrested last week on Wednesday after he nearly rammed his SUV into a police car in Framingham, Massachusetts.

He was later charged with DUI among other violations. I spoke to Framingham Public Information Officer Lieutenant Delaney who told me that when Onyango Obama was asked at booking if he wanted to make a telephone call to arrange for bail, the Kenyan immigrant replied: “I think I will call the White House.”

I guess he figured he could get a pass like Obama’s illegal alien aunt got.  Who knows, maybe he’s right?

Drunk driving is a serious offense.  Just ask Mary Jo Kopechne.  Oh, wait…

Quote of the day, “Durbin not familiar with qualifications of presidency” edition

When he’s not busy comparing our soldiers to Pol Pot and Stalin, Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) likes to pass the time Hispandering in a way that reveals his ignorance:

Durbin, while pooping up the DREAM Act (amnesty), said this:

When I look around this room, I see America’s future. Our doctors, our teachers, our nurses, our engineers, our scientists, our soldiers, our Congressman, our Senators and maybe our President.

Lost on Durbin the Turban is Article 2, Section 1, Clause 5 of the Constitution:  “No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President.”

Congress: We voted “no” on the DREAM Act; Obama: OK, then we’ll go ahead and implement the DREAM Act

Remember when Oprompter and his leftist minions used to be offended at the appearance of alleged executive overreach?  Yeah, me too.  Good times, good times.

But that was a couple of years and a different party affiliation ago.  Details:

A new enforcement memo handed down by the director of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement last week has some accusing the White House of running around Congress to implement the DREAM Act – and consequent amnesty for some illegal immigrants – by executive fiat.

The new memo, penned by ICE Director John Morton, directs ICE agents, attorneys and directors to exercise “prosecutorial discretion” – meaning less likelihood of deportation – for illegal aliens who have been students in the U.S., who have been in the country since childhood or who have served in the American military.

Critics have pointed out the new leniency standards parallel the provisions of the Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors Act, or DREAM Act, which could not pass the Senate, despite several votes over the past decade, including three failed attempts at passage last year.

“This is outright lawlessness on the part of the administration,” argued syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer on a discussion panel with Fox News’ anchor Chris Wallace. “Whatever the politics of this, we do have a Constitution. And under it, the Legislature, the Congress enacts the laws and the executive executes them. It doesn’t make them up.

“The DREAM Act was rejected by Congress,” Krauthammer continued. “It is now being enacted by the executive, despite the express will of the Congress. That is lawless. It may not be an explicit executive order; it’s an implicit one.”

ObaMao continues to wipe his backside with the Constitution and the rule of law.  Libs are totally cool with totalitarianism, so long as it’s their brand of totalitarianism.

DNC chair: Can you believe those crazy Republicans think that “illegal” means “illegal”?

You thought Howard “the Scream” Dean had some notable quotables?  His replacement is certainly proving herself to be a worthwhile heir.

Here‘s what Debbie Wasserman-Schultz (no relation to the foul-mouthed, little-watched, suspended cretin at MSDNC) had to say about those crazy Republicans and what they consider to be crimes:

And that it would be harmful if — the Republican solution that I’ve seen in the last three years is that we should just pack them all up and ship them back to their own countries, and that in fact it should be a crime and we should arrest them all.

Um, I don’t know how to break this to you, Mrs. Hyphenated-Moonbat, but illegal immigration is just that…illegal.  You know, il-legal?  As in “not legal”, “against the law”, and heck, even “a crime“?  So yeah, we right-wing nutbars happen to think Merriam Webster was onto something by defining “illegal” as “criminal”.  We’re kind of funny that way.

Newt: As if my presidential aspirations weren’t dead yet, I propose a new kind of amnesty program for illegal aliens

Sitting on the couch with Pe-loser to talk about a junk science fad?  Check.  Pushing for a RINO-turned-Dem supporter in NY-23?  Check.  Tossing Paul Ryan’s popular fiscal plan under the bus and allowing Dems to use his words in their campaign material?  Check.

If Gingrich’s campaign were on life support before, this just might pull the plug:

Newt Gingrich, whose campaign for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination has gotten off to a rocky start, risked fresh controversy on Thursday by suggesting that some illegal immigrants living in the United States “may have earned the right to become legal.”…

Gingrich recounted how World War Two-era U.S. draft boards chose who would serve in the military, saying a similar system might help deal with the millions of immigrants living in the United States illegally.

“Because I think we are going to want to find some way to deal with the people who are here to distinguish between those who have no ties to the United States, and therefore you can deport them at minimum human cost, and those who, in fact, may have earned the right to become legal, but not citizens,” Gingrich said.

Brilliant, Newt.  The base was already pretty inflamed, so it only makes sense on “Apocalypse Eve” to poke them in the eye on the way to Eternity, right?

Nightmare averted: Dream Act dies in the Senate!

Lawbreakers, freeloaders, and RINO Senators from IN hardest hit.  Details:

Senate Republicans have blocked a bill to grant hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants brought to the United States as children a chance to gain legal status if they enroll in college or join the military.

Sponsors of what they call the Dream Act needed 60 Senate votes for it, but fell five short. The House passed the bill last week. It was a last-ditch effort to enact it before it Republicans take control of the House from Democrats in January.

Senate Republicans have blocked a bill to grant hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants brought to the United States as children a chance to gain legal status if they enroll in college or join the military.

Sponsors of what they call the Dream Act needed 60 Senate votes for it, but fell five short. The House passed the bill last week. It was a last-ditch effort to enact it before it Republicans take control of the House from Democrats in January.

Dozens of immigrants wearing graduation mortarboards watched from the Senate’s visitors gallery, disappointment on their faces, as the 55-41 vote was announced.

So who were the crossovers?

Three Republicans — Robert Bennett of Utah (flipping the bird at the majority of UT voters who junked him in the GOP primary – CL), Lisa Murkowski of Alaska (flipping the bird at the Alaska GOP – CL) and Richard Lugar of Indiana — joined 50 Democrats and the Senate’s two independents in voting for the bill.

Five Democrats — Max Baucus of Montana, Jon Tester of Wyoming, Kay Hagan of North Carolina, Ben Nelson of Nebraska and Mark Pryor of Arkansas — joined 36 Republicans in blocking it. Not voting were Republican Sens. Jim Bunning of Kentucky, Orrin Hatch of Utah and Judd Gregg of New Hampshire, and Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia.

What the h3ll is Lugar thinking?  He’s already persona non grata in coservative circles, and all indications are that he will draw a Tea Party opponent in the IN GOP primary in 2012.  What in the Sam Hill was he thinking by casting a “Yes” vote in a lame duck session when Reid didn’t even have the votes on his own side to pass the thing?  Is Lugar just trying to tweak the Tea Partiers, and if so, has he secretly decided on retirement already?  I don’t get it.

Anywho, the Dream Act was an attempt at backdoor amnesty, and it failed.

Oh, speaking of backdoors, the Senate voted to repeal “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell”.

Crist: Hey, you know what could save Social Security? Amnesty for illegal aliens!

This must be seen to be believed:

Believe it or not, there is a more jaw-dropping statement from Governor Oompa Loompa:

When asked why he was sending out mailers with differing messages to different voting blocks, Crist explained that he was trying to reach out to all voters.

Wow.  Just wow.  “Voter block 1 wants to hear that I’m pro-choice, and voter block 2 wants to hear that I’m pro-life.  So I’ll send out mailers to both of them with different messages, telling them what they want to hear.  You know, to ‘reach out to all voters’ and stuff?”

He’s talking out of both sides of his mouth, which is tough to do through such a shiite-eating grin.

Point to ponder: Is it possible for a criminal alien to possess this degree of chutzpah?  Apparently, yeah:

BOSTON (WBZ) “If I come as an immigrant, you have the obligation to make me a citizen.” Those are the words from 58-year-old Zeituni Onyango of Kenya in a recent exclusive interview with WBZ-TV.

Screw the law.  Because she made it across the border, her prize for violating our laws should be…citizenship.  Got it.  Thanks for the clarification.

AZ law working already, future Democrat voters hardest hit

AZ to Eric Holder: Bite me.  Heh.

Nicaraguan mother Lorena Aguilar hawks a television set and a few clothes on the baking sidewalk outside her west Phoenix apartment block.

A few paces up the street, her undocumented Mexican neighbor WendiVillasenor touts a kitchen table, some chairs and a few dishes as her family scrambles to get out of Arizona ahead of a looming crackdown on illegal immigrants.

“Everyone is selling up the little they have and leaving,” said Villasenor, 31, who is headed for Pennsylvania. (Here they come, PA! – CL)  “We have no alternative. They have us cornered.”

The two women are among scores of illegal immigrant families across Phoenix hauling the contents of their homes into the yard this weekend as they rush to sell up and get out before the state law takes effect on Thursday.

Awesome.  See what happens when you simply enforce existing laws?

Now if only we can get my state (and the rest) to implement the AZ law, then…well, then I guess we can look forward to a Holder lawsuit, too.

Astroturfed criminal alien rally falls flat in Boston

What if an international agitator organization, comprised of unemployable non-bathing miscreants, held a protest and nobody came?  Well, it happened, in Boston:

Calls to protest Arizona’s tough illegal-immigration law fell flat in Boston yesterday as barely 400 people rallied in opposition to Gov. Jan Brewer and her policy to use ID checks to arrest illegals.

Organizers had predicted the gathering would draw thousands, but less than 400 peoplesome of them counter-protesters – showed up for the Copley Square rally.

Organizers with the ANSWER Coalition had advertised that the rally would draw thousands of people from across the East Coast.

Sarah Sloan, an organizer with the ANSWER Coalition, said protesters came from nine East Coast states, but the large numbers did not materialize.

Precious quote:

A fiery Steve Kirschbaum, a member of United Steeworkers Local 8751, called the law “scumbag, racist and fascist.”

“Our numbers may be small, but we speak for millions,” he said.

Um…no, Mr. Useless Union Parasite, you don’t.  Apparently, you only speak for hundreds.

I think there may have been some confusion, as this guy…

County supervisor, a Democrat, needs remedial U.S. geography

Edyookashun iz kool.  From Milwaukeestan:

There was an odd moment during the debate when Supervisor Peggy West stood up and seemed to be confused about her geography.  “If this was Texas, which is a state that is directly on the border with Mexico, and they were calling for a measure like this saying that they had a major issue with undocumented people flooding their borders, I would have to look twice at this.  But this (AZ) is a state that is a ways removed from the border,” West said during debate.

I don’t know how to break this to you, Magellan, but Arizona does indeed share a border with Mexico.  While she was telling people to Google AZ’s law, she might have heeded her own advice and utilized Google maps to see exactly where AZ is located.

How humiliating…and delicious!  😆

Obama’s Labor Sec: Illegals “have a right to be paid fairly”

Kyl: Obama says he won’t secure the border unless we Republicans support amnesty

That pansy-a$$ Chicago thug in the White House refuses to do his friggin’ job unless he can get amnesty jammed down our throats.  Details (video at link):

On June 18, 2010, Arizona Republican Senator Jon Kyl told the audience at a North Tempe Tea Party town hall meeting that during a private, one-on-one meeting with President Obama in the Oval Office, the President told him, regarding securing the southern border with Mexico, “The problem is, . . . if we secure the border, then you all won’t have any reason to support ‘comprehensive immigration reform.’” [Audible gasps were heard throughout the audience.] Sen. Kyl continued, “In other words, they’re holding it hostage. They don’t want to secure the border unless and until it is combined with ‘comprehensive immigration reform.’”

Mexico tells America how to police its own borders

Holy frijoles, Señor Batman!  Calderon sure has huevos grandes to say this:

Regarding the Administration’s decision to send 1,200 National Guard servicemen to the US Southern border, the Government of Mexico trusts that this decision will help to channel additional US resources to enhance efforts to prevent the illegal flows of weapons and bulk cash into Mexico, which provide organized crime with its firepower and its ability to corrupt.

Additionally, the Government of Mexico expects that National Guard personnel will strengthen US operations in the fight against transnational organized crime that operates on both sides of our common border and that it will not, in accordance to its legal obligations, conduct activities directly linked to the enforcement of immigration laws.

Whiskey Tango Foxtrot?  The National Guard should not “conduct activities directly linked to the enforcement of immigration laws”?  What does he think they are there for, free burritos?  Have they been smoking some quality peyote or what?

He should be thankful that America isn’t as barbaric as Mexico in protecting our borders

MA illegal immigration shill gets crashed into by a couple of tons of irony

Since no one is seriously hurt, I feel empowered to giggle mercilessly like pre-teens (or Andrew Sullivan, take your pick) at a Jonas Brothers concert.  Details:

Hey, Rep. Moran, how do you say “karma” in Spanish?

Michael Moran of Brighton is a staunch supporter of the “sanctuary” approach to illegal immigration we have here in Massachusetts. He voted against the Perry amendment that would require applicants for state benefits to prove they’re here legally. Moran voted for subsidized college tuition for illegals, too.

It’s safe to say that no Massachusetts politician has done more to make illegal immigrants feel welcome. Illegal immigrants like 27-year-old Isaias Naranjo, who (ahem) “met” Moran on the streets of Brighton last week.

According to Fox 25, Naranjo was driving 60 mph when he slammed his car into Moran’s. Naranjo was also drunk, driving without a license and – in an only-in-Massachusetts twist – was wearing a “Mexican costume” at the time.

Note the cavalier attitude of the criminal alien:

Now if Naranjo were just another Massachusetts taxpayer, he would be in some serious guacamole. But Fox reports that when police tried to explain the seriousness of his situation, he just laughed.

“Nothing is going to happen to me, man,” Naranjo told the cops. That’s because he was “going back to my home country, Mexico.”

Naranjo had gotten the Massachusetts message: It’s never illegal to be illegal here. In fact sometimes it’s pretty damn good.

Believe it or not, I’m not that mad at him for his nonchalant attitude.  I’m livid at the amnesty shills like Moran who have emboldened this cretin to feel this way.

A drunk Kennedy humiliates himself, albeit unintentionally

Ted Kennedy was unavailable for comment.  Patches, however, was available for this nugget: “What is your reaction to the [Mexican] president criticizing the Arizona law?”
Rep. Patrick Kennedy (D-R.I.): “Well he’s right on. I mean, it violates the spirit of our own Constitution. So, you know, we  had a tragic history in this country. The most shameful parts of our history were when we had our slave trade, when we, when we, the Trail of Tears — what we did to our Native Americans.  And, you know, the proudest moments in our history are when we had the Civil Rights Act, when we moved forward on integration and expanding the opportunities for all of our citizens. So, this idea of, you know, racial profiling, takes us backwards and really goes to the worst character of our nation and it’s, it’s demeaning to our country that we would move in that direction. It’s beneath us as a people.”

Slave trade?  Trail of Tears?  Seriously, border security and enforcement of federal immigration law is akin to slave trade and the Trail of Tears?  Seriously?

I suppose it’s belaboring the point to mention, yet again, that the AZ immigration law explicitly forbids racial profiling.  But Patches is simply doing what B.O., Nappy Napolitano, Holder, and other Obamatons are doing: popping off about a law they haven’t ever read.  That’s yet additional proof that liberals are impervious to facts.

Rep. Tom McClintock blasts Mexico’s president for assailing the AZ law

Most of you have seen the shameful display by B.O. and his minions in Congress, giving a standing ovation to the president of Mexico who came to our country, stood before our elected officials, and lambasted our immigration laws.

Two observations here:

1.  President Calderon was grilled by Wolf Blitzer on Mexico’s immigration policy, which is far more brutal and exclusionary than our immigration policy.  Calderon was apparently oblivious to the hypocrisy coming out of his burritohole:

BLITZER: So if people want to come from Guatemala or Honduras or El Salvador or Nicaragua, they want to just come into Mexico, they can just walk in?

CALDERON: No. They need to fulfill a form. They need to establish their right name. We analyze if they have not a criminal precedent. And they coming into Mexico. Actually…

BLITZER: Do Mexican police go around asking for papers of people they suspect are illegal immigrants?

CALDERON: Of course. Of course, in the border, we are asking the people, who are you?

And if they explain…

BLITZER: At the border, I understand, when they come in.


BLITZER: But once they’re in…

CALDERON: But not — but not in — if — once they are inside the — inside the country, what the Mexican police do is, of course, enforce the law. But by any means, immigration is a crime anymore in Mexico.

BLITZER: Immigration is not a crime, you’re saying?

CALDERON: It’s not a crime.

BLITZER: So in other words, if somebody sneaks in from Nicaragua or some other country in Central America, through the southern border of Mexico, they wind up in Mexico, they can go get a job…


BLITZER: They can work.

CALDERON: If — if somebody do that without permission, we send back — we send back them.

Hypocrisy: it’s not just for dessert with flan and sopapillas anymore.

2.  Rep. Tom McClintock (R-CA) had a fiery retort to Calderon’s and the liberals’ disgusting and shameful behavior.  Read the transcripts here, an excerpt of which follows:

The Mexican government has made it very clear for many years that it holds American sovereignty in contempt and President Calderon’s behavior as a guest of the Congress confirms and underscores this attitude.

It is highly inappropriate for the President of Mexico to lecture Americans on American immigration policy, just as it would be for Americans to lecture Mexico on its laws.  It is obvious that President Calderon does not understand the nature of America or the purpose of our immigration law.

Unlike Mexico, our nation embraces immigration and what makes that possible is assimilation.

The largest group of immigrants now comes from Mexico.  A recent RAND study discovered that during most of the 20th Century, while our immigration laws were actually enforced, assimilation worked and made possible the swift attainment of the American dream for millions of immigrants seeking to escape conditions in Mexico.

It is an outrage that a foreign head of state would appear in this chamber and actively seek to do so.  And it is a disgrace that he would be cheered on from the left wing of the White House and by many Democrats in this Congress.

Arizona has not adopted a new immigration law.  All it has done is to enforce existing law that President Obama refuses to enforce.  It is hardly a radical policy to suggest that if an officer on a routine traffic stop encounters a driver with no driver’s license, no passport, and who doesn’t speak English, that maybe that individual might be here illegally.

And to those who say we must reform our immigration laws, I reply that we don’t need to reform them, we need to enforce them, just as every other government does.  Just as Mexico does. …

If the left insists on fighting on ther wrong side of an issue on which 73% of Americans disagree with them, that’s fine with me.  Then again, all that the left has done since assuming power is wipe their backsides with the Constitution and flaunt their contempt for normal America.

AZ utility company to LA: Do you still want electricity in your city?

As if Chris Christie’s takedown of a liberal reporter (pardon the redundancy) wasn’t enough to make me orgasmic, this retort from the AZ power commission to LA regarding an AZ boycott oughta do the trick.  Link to PDF here.

Dear Mayor Villaraigosa,

I was dismayed to learn that the Los Angeles City Council voted to boycott Arizona and Arizona-based companies — a vote you strongly supported — to show opposition to SB 1070 (Support our Law Enforcement and Safe Neighborhoods Act).

You explained your support of the boycott as follows: “While we recognize that as neighbors, we share resources and ties with the State of Arizona that may be difficult to sever, our goal is not to hurt the local economy of Los Angeles, but to impact the economy of Arizona.  Our intent is to use our dollars — or the withholding of our dollars — to send a message.” (emphasis added)

I received your message; please receive mine.  As a state-wide elected member of the Arizona Corporation Commission overseeing Arizona’s electric and water utilities, I too am keenly aware of the “resources and ties” we share with the City of Los Angeles. In fact, approximately twenty-five percent of the electricity consumed in Los Angeles is generated by power plants in Arizona.

If an economic boycott is truly what you desire, I will be happy to encourage Arizona utilities to renegotiate your power agreements so Los Angeles no longer receives any power from Arizona-based generation. I am confident that Arizona’s utilities would be happy to take those electrons off your hands. If, however, you find that the City Council lacks the strength of its convictions to turn off the lights in Los Angeles and boycott Arizona power, please reconsider the wisdom of attempting to harm Arizona’s economy.

People of goodwill can disagree over the merits of SB 1070. A state-wide economic boycott of Arizona is not a message sent in goodwill.


Commissioner Gary Pierce

Ball’s in your court now, LA.  😆

Eric Holder: No, I haven’t read the AZ immigration law, but I’m POSITIVE it’s unconstitutional!

When you’ve already got your mind made up about something, you don’t let trivial things like facts and the Constitution get in the way, do you?  Details:

Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr., who has been critical of Arizona’s new immigration law, said Thursday he hasn’t yet read the law and is going by what he’s read in newspapers or seen on television.

Now that is an awesome prosecutorial approach!  “Your honor, I have no bleeping idea what’s in this law, but Keith Olbermann says it sucks, so here we are.”  Continuing:

“I’ve just expressed concerns on the basis of what I’ve heard about the law. But I’m not in a position to say at this point, not having read the law, not having had the chance to interact with people are doing the review, exactly what my position is,” Mr. Holder told the House Judiciary Committee.

This weekend Mr. Holder told NBC’s “Meet the Press” program that the Arizona law “has the possibility of leading to racial profiling.” He had earlier called the law’s passage “unfortunate,” and questioned whether the law was unconstitutional because it tried to assume powers that may be reserved for the federal government.

Rep. Ted Poe, who had questioned Mr. Holder about the law, wondered how he could have those opinions if he hadn’t yet read the legislation.

“It’s hard for me to understand how you would have concerns about something being unconstitutional if you haven’t even read the law,” the Texas Republican told the attorney general.

Holder’s response to “what part of the AZ law violates the Constitution?” seems to be “Who cares?  I don’t like it!”  The chief law enforcement officer, friends.  We’re in great hands.

Apparently, the administration didn’t learn diddly after the Cambridge police – Professor Gates incident, whereby Barry O made a fool of himself by criticizing the police (“They acted stupidly”) before getting all of the information.  Open mouth, insert foot, repeat as necessary.

So NOW McCain wants to build a fence along the Mexican border?

Wait, wait, wait. Lemme see if I’m getting this right:

Juan McAmnesty, a longtime champion of “comprehensive immigration reform” who hired an open borders shill to run his “Hispanic outreach” in 2008, once cursed people like me (and apparently like 70% of his state’s citizens) for wanting to build a (his words) “g-d-mned fence“.

But now that he’s in a dogfight in the AZ GOP primary, two years removed from being his party’s presidential nominee, he has suddenly seen the light on the importance of a border fence.  He’s running a commercial imploring the feds to “build the danged fence“!

Wow.  I mean, seriously…wow.  There’s flip-flopping, and then there’s shameless “please don’t hand me a pink slip, I’ll say anything you want me to say!” flip-flopping.  The “maverick” who has been willing to buck his party for years now suddenly finds himself “condescending” to the base, abandoning his convictions just to keep his seat on the gravy train!

I cordially invite you to self-fornicate, McCain.

Quote of the day, “Why illegal immigration ROCKS!” edition

Dingbat Eleanor Clift of Newsweek defines the invasion of criminal aliens pouring across the southern border thusly:

It’s a happy invasion for most people in this country,” Clift proclaimed. “[W]e love the diversity of food.

Right, because Taco Bell and any other Tex-Mex joint in America couldn’t exist without…um…illegal immigrants. Oooooooo-kay, then.

And if, by “most people”, she means the 70% of Arizonans who support the new state law cracking down on criminal immigration, then yeah…”most people”!

Illegal immigrants in AZ: You know, if this sentiment keeps up, we just might leave!

Not content with letting MSNBC steal the absurd headlines, the AP decides to one-up the little-watched cable network with this headline:

“Illegal immigrants plan to leave over Ariz. law”

An excerpt that needs to be re-read to be believed:

Many day laborers like Diaz say they will leave Arizona because of the law, which also makes it a crime to be in the U.S. illegally and directs police to question people about their immigration status if there is reason to suspect they are illegal immigrants.

Is the AP implying that it isn’t a crime to be breaking the law by being here illegally?  If not, then the word “illegal” has no meaning.

Two thoughts here:

1.  Yeah, right, sure they’ll leave!  Suuuuuuure they will.

2.  If all it takes to export criminal aliens back to whence they came is a law like that of AZ, then every state needs to pass one pronto!

MSNBC screen headline: “Law makes it a crime to be Illegal Immigrant”

Irony: it’s not just for breakfast anymore.  Story, along with screen cap, here.

I’m going out on a limb and guessing that MSNBC and both of their viewers totally missed the “illegal” part, since “illegal” means “it’s a crime”.  But nope…no liberal media bias!

CNN: AZ’s new massively popular illegal immigration law is “polarizing”

AZ just passed a state law that enforces immigration laws at the state level.

CNN’s headline? “Immigration law polarizes Arizonans”

If, by “polarizing”, they mean “supported by 70% of Arizonans“, then yeah…”polarizing”.

Question: Do you recall having seen any headlines that described ObamaCare (opposed by nearly the same percentage as those who support AZ’s new criminal immigration law) as “polarizing”?  Me neither.

Nope…no liberal media bias!

Quote of the day, “McCain gets serious about border enforcement” edition

Are we talking about John McCain, aka Juan McAmnesty?  The same McCain that bellyached about having to “build the g#d#mned. fence“?

Yep, the same McCain.  Quote:

“I believe that we can convince our Republican colleagues that we have to secure the border first,” McCain said during an appearance on KFYI radio in Arizona. “There’s no point of having immigration reform unless you can have the borders secure first.”

I don’t suppose this has anything to do with the fact that his numbers in the AZ primary have begun to crater, does it?  I mean, he’s fighting a longtime opponent of criminal immigration in J.D. Hayworth, and McCain has seen his fortunes go much like those of Charlie Crist in FL: from huge primary lead, to falling massively.  McCain still leads Hayworth in the polls, but that once-insurmountable lead looks…well, surmountable now.  How humiliating would it be, for both McCain and the GOP establishment, if the party’s presidential candidate from two years ago gets whacked in a Senate primary?

Straight talk McCain: he will straight up tell you how it is, and if you don’t like it, he’s more than willing to tell you something else until he figures out what you want to hear.

Charlie Crist supports counting criminal immigrants in census

Friggin’ brilliant, Charlie.  You’re tanking now in a poll that you led by 30+% a couple of months ago, so you figured the best way to regain the lead in a conservative primary is…to shill for illegal immigrantsReally?

I’m going to love casting my vote for Marco Rubio this summer.
