It’s a Small World for Spanish-Speaking Supporters of Sarah Palin Channel!

sarah iowa roguerogue channel

By Isabel Matos

Our post got a mention from the Spanish blogger who has referred to us as “mis amigos” (his friends) at A Time for Choosing.  He says that what I wrote about the Spanish media’s mocking of the Spanish Palin Channel is true, emphasizing in particular that the channel has been mocked because of the $9.95 subscription (that is in reference to the media’s snide remarks about paying the monthly fee for her (Sarah’s) patriotism. He adds that it is also true that where he is from, Spain, no one save for the readers of his Blog, Going Rogue Going Palin, would even know a word about it.  Nothing new under the sun, “querida (dear) Isabel”, he adds. “I’m happy with the subscription rate which is reasonable and I’m loving being a user.” If you want to play you have to pay, he says, and SPC is no exception. So, to the “Rojos” (the Reds):  “It’s been TO HECK with you long ago! I’m all in on Sarah Palin’s latest!” (That is the gist of what was written below):

A vueltas con esto de su nuevo canal de noticias, el “Sarah Palin Channel”, me hago eco de una noticia que me envían mis amigos del blog A Time For Choosing sobre la repercusión que ha tenido entre los medios de comunicación hispanohablantes este lanzamiento. Por descontado, ha sido nulo o, como mucho, se burlan porque hay que abonar una cuota de suscripción, dando a entender que no es más que una treta de los Palin para hacer dinero. Por mi parte, tengo que lamentar que en España, salvo los que leen “Going Rogue, Going Palin”, nadie sepa ni una palabra. Pero eso ya era de suponer, teniendo en cuenta cómo andan las cosas por aquí. Así que, querida Isabel, nada nuevo bajo la capa del sol. Por cierto, sobre lo de la cuota de abono: a mí me parece muy lógico, me parece muy barata y estoy encantado de abonarme. Quien algo quiere, algo le cuesta y el Canal Sarah tiene un coste, evidentemente. Así que, rojos, idos a la mierda; yo me voy a ver lo último que ha colgado Sarah.

[I just want to reiterate that by these posts I am not personally committing to doing versions of the Channel in Spanish on a regular basis. It is experimental. If there is a desire for it.. or a need, it would be enjoyable but it is time-consuming.  Let's see what happens is what I live by.  No promises. Thanks as always. Isabel]

‘Gloat’ Old Party Boasts Incumbent Win in KS. Aren’t They Being Short-Sighted?

Roberts Beats Milton

By Isabel Matos

Because of time constraints and the fact (I have to be honest) that Sarah Palin did not throw an endorsement his way, I was just crossing my fingers hoping Dr. Milton Wolf, radiologist and distant cousin of President Barack Obama, would topple an incumbent GOP senator in 2014.

Dan Riehl 8/2/2014 of the Conversation writes:

If you want to truly understand politics, especially of the Right-leaning variety, you’ll have to look beyond the dumbed-down, self-congratulatory so called journalism of Beltway establishment publications like Politico.

Here is their headline out of Kansas: How Pat Roberts beat Milton Wolf. But the real story has to be read between the lines.

Pat Roberts’ narrower-than-expected win over challenger Milton Wolf on Tuesday night — came with a big lift from party headquarters in Washington.

The Republican Party threw everything they had behind Roberts …. and what did they get for it? Less than 50% of their own base vote, that’s what. The anti-Roberts vote was split, not “defeated.”

Roberts defeated Wolf, 48 percent to 41 percent; a pair of minor candidates combined for the remaining 11 percent of the vote.

I will add (source: Politico)

The NRSC sent six workers to the Kansas City area for the final 10 days, and they knocked on more than 10,000 doors in Johnson County alone, a party official said. A Washington phone bank set up by the NRSC also made more than 40,000 phone calls in the final three weeks. Ultimately, Roberts fought Wolf to a virtual tie in Johnson County. Wolf took 45.7 percent to Roberts’ 45.4 percent, a 147-vote edge. 

That is hardly overwhelming but it just shows how Establishment knows the ropes of primaries. They’ve beat the Tea Party in almost every one by design. If they beat us at the primary level, it doesn’t matter what happens at the Election because all they want is to be IN Washington, with or without a majority.  Of course, when they talk about a majority they forget that they depend on the base, the very voters and candidates who represent them that they are trying to crush at the primary level to obtain it, thus the bad blood and “civil war” in the party. So many still don’t get it. They do not deserve us!

Back to Dan Riehl’s commentary:

The D.C. GOP consultant class can back-slap all they want. They may even dance themselves silly right out of their expensive loafers. Unfortunately, all the results from Kansas last night proved is that the Republican Party continues to be a party at odds with its base. Furthermore, if they continue to try and ignore that reality, anything and everything they think they are winning now will be wiped away with a disastrous defeat in 2016.  Read the rest here.

******

Wolf meets Roberts asking for Debate:

It is interesting that Sarah Palin did not endorse Dr. WOLF, but would it have made a difference?   It reminded me of the Kentucky race where she did not get involved by supporting Matt Bevin who lost. Just like in Bevin’s case, the establishment media coverage seems to have owned the narrative early on.

The Tennessee primary is on Thursday. Lamar Alexander vs. Palin-endorsed and underdog Joe Carr.  We will post on that soon.

The Real Story: Chris McDaniel’s Historic US Senate Campaign

Isabel Matos:

Chris McDaniel deserves a clean victory. There should be no write-in, no other election, or no third party solution.. McDaniel won this race fair and square. and should be the nominee. Let’s pray he prevails. He has the evidence. He has the fight in him. And he has the Truth on his side. What more can we ask? There is no gray area here. It’s black and white. I don’t think in this case Cochran has a LEG to stand on. What the GOPe did was not only unfair it was illegal. Cochran and the GOPe have exposed themselves. They will have to answer for their deeds: heads will have to roll. and arrests made if need be. This is one victory they will have no moral or political authority over. They’ve cheated before but finally got caught. It’s illegality clear as day. The race has even transcended even politics. It has an inspiring message that you never surrender if you believe that what you are doing is right.

In his most recent column on the establishment website Y’all Politics, Frank Corder gives his assessment of the current state of politics in Mississippi and his predictions for the general election this November and state races in 2015.

But what caught my attention, aside from his flawed analysis, has been his consistent downplaying of Senator Chris McDaniel’s historic effort to replace Thad Cochran in the United States Senate. This has been the theme, not only from Corder and the hacks at Y’all Politics, but also from the media establishment throughout the state.

Translation, Please! Marco Rubio “Explains” Flip on Immigration Stance.

By Isabel Matos

This was part of a conversation in a thread shared in our group which I found amusing.  I think as most people had this reaction when they saw Rubio try explain his flip to Chris, but evaded the question instead. If I explain it too much it takes away the funny.

H:  What, did, this, guy, say? Please, translate?

L:  I was hoping you would know? :)

H:  Ha, L! ;)

I:   Omg. I didn’t understand him LMAO.

L:  I watched this again this morning and thought…what a smug little bastard!

I:   It’s not even funny. Last year I’d post about him and would get tons of attention. No longer. He gets less views than even Jeb. Rubio fell on the sword for him. Hope he’s happy.

F:   His answers sounded like Paul Ryan’s answers, when he was asked similar questions.

Chris Wallace Grills Marco Rubio on Immigration: If Not Political, Why Did You Flip Fox News Sunday

Chris Wallace GRILLS Marco Rubio For flipping On Immigration. Fox News Sunday Chris Wallace grilled Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) Sunday morning over the lawmaker’s shifting immigration policies after his shepherding of comprehensive immigration reform last year cost him mightily among conservative voters.

When I got involved in the issue I knew how difficult is was politically,” Rubio replied. “But I ran for office to make a difference. …I don’t know what it means politically for me or anybody else, but that’s not my job. I didn’t get elected to maintain good poll numbers nationally.”

But if it’s not political, why have you flipped?” Wallace asked, noting that Rubio’s bill had included a path to citizenship along with increased border security, but that Rubio now believes reform should be implemented in stages, with a path to citizenship coming last.

We’re not debating what to do, we’re debating how to do it,” Rubio said. “I’m just telling you, we will never have the votes necessary to pass, in one bill, all of those things. It just won’t happen. So our choices are, we can either continue to beat out head against the wall and try a process for which we’ll never have support, or we can try another way we can make progress on.”

Lanzamiento de Sarah Palin Channel

sarah iowa rogue

By Isabel Matos

I was intrigued by some of the international coverage of the launching of the Sarah Palin Channel last Monday for two reasons:

1.  The Spanish speaking media tends to be left leaning and is a huge audience in this country. There were references made to Tina Fey impersonations and the fact that users (snidely mentioned) could enjoy her “patriotism” for just $9.95 a month in the newspaper clip I read. They also included a reference that Obama is her favorite target which I kept. I did not write the script. I just tweaked parts of an article clip from Agence France Presse and La Estrella de Panama online.

2.  Sarah Palin has been criticized by some Rino advocates and cheerleaders as not appealing to Hispanics. That is a myth that is being created to keep this demographic away from her, but the impact of the media in that respect is undeniable.

I just loved doing this. I hope you enjoy it and I hope people realize Sarah Palin does appeal to Hispanics but the media has to help.  I have no intentions of making this my sole purpose from now on, but things are so organic in politics, especially in this movement sometimes, that one never knows what roads we are led to follow if needed. I will keep an eye on Spanish coverage from time to time.

Please enjoy the clip, above all.  That was the original intention.  Thank you.

It’s Official! Chris McDaniel to File Formal Legal Challenge.

By Isabel Matos

Updated 8:40 p.m. Digital Copy of Challenge Filed

Chris McDaniel’s campaign has announced it is challenging the results of the June 24th runoff election because of evidence that McDaniel should have won. The formal challenge will be sent to the Mississippi Republican Party Executive Committee Monday.

In the afternoon press conference, Chris McDaniel said he sees this as an opportunity for the party to take the lead on honest, good transparent elections. He says he believes the Executive Committee will grant them a hearing. His attorney went on to say they hope that will happen 8 days from now.

You’ll remember, the GOP Executive Committee had already unanimously voted to certify the election results. Since the runoff, McDaniel volunteers have spent days pouring through poll books and ballot materials. One concern has been crossover votes.

McDaniels campaign says it has found approximately 3,500 crossover votes and that “mathematics” show McDaniel should have won Republican nomination. Certified results showed incumbent U.S. Senator Thad Cochran with a 7,667 vote margin of victory.State election law prohibits anyone from voting in a party’s primary and the other party’s runoff. McDaniel’s campaign claims that Democrats helped Cochran win the election.

Earlier Monday, Mississippi Republican Party Chairman Joe Nosef said he’s tried to remain neutral throughout the whole process. He says he still can’t say a whole lot about the challenge because he would serve in a judge role for the GOP executive committee.

There are limited rules on how the Executive Committee will handle challenges. The party chairman says there’s not really a precedent for this.

Copyright 2014 MSNewsNow. All rights reserved.

UPDATED 3:28 by Isabel: Attorney Mitch Tyner said that 71 percent of those who voted for Cochran in the run off admitted they would not vote for him in the election. He said that if the courts accept their information McDaniel won by 25,000 votes. They want an Open hearing where Republicans – all Republicans – can be present to ensure fairness.  As we await the official clip you may refer to the last press conference with information on what they had found. First photo courtesy of Maria Mchnis Mooney.  Other two by Isabel Matos.

Communist Agitator Tries to Intimidate You With Misplaced and Disingenuous Concern: Put the Illegal Children First!

recruit
By Isabel Matos

The President was said to have torched the tougher language in the Border Spending Bill yesterday (EYE ROLL) and there is a tape of Luis Gutierrez speaking at the Congressional Hispanic Caucus while the House awaited a tougher border bill than the one the President had presented.

TPNN reported:

Gutierrez outrageously claimed that Republicans speak of Hispanics “almost as though we are a vile, repugnant community to them that they vilify and demonize in every one of their statements.” Gutierrez soon switched to speaking in Spanish and said, (translated)
“They know [Obama’s] going to act soon — they want to maintain this crisis to condemn our community, a community without rights for our kids at this moment, our DREAMers, and for millions of others that the president has said he wants to help. That’s what they want. They want to punish our community, and that punishment will be met with an electoral punishment. Be assured that we are not going to forget the mistreatment our community has received.”
Since when is simply advocating for government to enforce the law “punishing” a community?

Whether Canadian, Mexican, Colombian or whatever- the fact remains that we need secure borders. There is nothing remotely racist about wanting the rule of law followed.

The Democrats have worked very hard to make this issue about anything other than what it is truly about: enforcing the law.

Nobody wants to harm children; nobody wants to “punish” communities. It’s unbelievable that calling for the law to be enforced has become a “radical” ideology that is seen as a punishment against minority communities. Article

The representative from Illinoins lectures Republicans AND Americans for that matter by saying we are punishing the “children” of his community who have crossed the border illegally. I don’t know what community he is talking about because he does not speak for me.  Or mine (what community?) We’re not a part of communities but individuals in a REPUBLIC.  Don’t let his words or phony outrage faze you.  He is like Michael Moore.  Gutierrez is a hypocrite.

But some Republicans actually don’t care about his language him because they, too, want Amnesty.  We know Boehner does. And Paul Ryan, his buddy. Gutierrez was one of the “writers” (who knows who is actually doing the wring) of the so-called Gang of 7 Bill last year: Mario Diaz-Balart, Judge John Carter (who he mentioned in his tirade last night) and Sam Johnson from Texas on the Republican side. (Raul Labrador had dropped out.) From the left: Zoe Lofgren, Xavier Becerra, and  John Yarmouth.  I put the video I made at the very bottom for reinforcement.

Gutierrez is a community activist who has also represented members of domestic terrorist groups. Not to escalate things, but I sent him a tweet last night calling him a disingenuous Communist who should live in a communist country and defend the rights of children like in Cuba who suffer at the hands of a fascist, merciless regime for over 55 years now, even under an elderly dictator. You know where to find me, just leave this country alone, Congressman!

How dare you 1) speak for all Hispanics and 2) abuse the freedom this country gives you to say that its laws must be broken so you and your clan can contribute to its demise.  Shame on this Commie Roach! He should be called what he is.  And shame on anti-communist Balart for dealing with him at all.  Amnesty is not about feelings. It is not about tugging at the heart strings of people. It is about an Alinsky Rules for Radicals Agenda to create a Democratic Plurality.

Here are some of the pictures of the so-called “children” who (bless their hearts) are trying to get into this country.  Many are Gang Members are trying to recruit other children warehoused in the facilities.

From the Article: Violent transnational gangs ‘recruiting unaccompanied minors’

Members of some of the United States’ most notorious street gangs have infiltrated shelters housing illegal immigrant minors from Central America and are recruiting them, say Homeland Security sources. An estimated 57,000 minors from Central America have flooded across the border from Mexico to the U.S. in recent months, and gang leaders are reportedly filling their ranks from among them. Transnational gangs such as the Mara Salvatruca, also known as MS-13, and the 18th Street gang are using established juvenile members from Central America to cross the border and recruit other children to the cartels, say sources.

DACA’s Fate Less Certain After Tonight

king

By Isabel Matos

The House delayed its August recess to debate the bill.  Please check three previous articles: 1 2 3. Vote results are as follows:

Updated 9:04 p.m. by Emma Dumain

House Republicans found the votes late Friday night to pass a $694 million appropriations bill aimed at stemming the tide of the child migrant surge at the U.S-Mexico border.

It passed largely along party lines, 223-189, freeing Republicans to go home for the August recess able to tell constituents they took action to address the crisis — unlike the Senate, which was unable to pass its own border funding bill Thursday but left town anyway. Only a single Democrat, Rep. Henry Cuellar of Texas, voted for the package.

Just four Republicans voted no: Thomas Massie of Kentucky, Stephen Fincher of Tennessee, Walter B. Jones of North Carolina and Paul Broun of Georgia….

Republicans had tried to appease their restive caucus with a separate vote to end the Obama administration’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which grants stays of deportation to young undocumented immigrations brought into the country illegally by their parents.

They at last sealed the deal on Friday by making the DACA bill more stringent while broadening the changes to the 2008 trafficking law. The changes included allowing minors to remain in the custody of immigration enforcement officials as they await deportation proceedings, and on language regarding government investigations into whether the adults taking custody of those minors paid criminal smugglers for their passage.

One of leadership’s harshest critics, Rep. Steve King of Iowa, told CQ Roll Call the new package was “like I ordered if off the menu.” Read more here

Commie Agitator and Terrorist Advocate Luis V. Gutierrez (D-IL) Gets Carried Away With Histrionics in Favor of DACA

Luis-Gutierrez-E-Verify-LATINO_t750x550-e1373933504890

By Isabel Matos

Illinois representative Luis V. Gutierrez, commie agitator, Ryan’s buddy, and terrorist advocate begins a typical tirade filled with tough talk, a hissy fit and extortion to speak about Republicans.  He had 2 minutes to speak on the House floor but gets so carried away he goes over his time. 8:50-8:53. He says:

How did we get here in the dark of night Republicans are voting to deport Dreamers, take away the DACA Program and make every undocumented immigrant deport-able. In November of 2012 the Republicans were shell-shocked and they spoke of turning over a new leaf with young voters, with Asian voters, women and Latinos.  A year ago I was working with Congressman Sam Johnson and Judge Carter of Texas. I did town hall meetings and public appearances with Judge Carter and with Congressman Balart. Now late on a Friday night you are going after the dreamers. Michele Bachmann and Ted Cruz are writing the script to destroy families. They are taking the Dreamer Act all away, demonizing children at the borders and deporting the dreamers. Republicans say they should go back in the shadows. Late on a Friday night you are going after Dreamers who risk their families by reporting to the Department of  Homeland Security to get right with the law.  Now the Republicans are saying you have to go. Now their opportunities are few and their futures unsure. You want to take that all away.  In the end Let the truth be know the Republican party’s desire is to deport all. It’s suicide in the political strategy. Is there no one in your conference who can stand up and talk sensibly when others in your party want to demonize children? Are you so afraid of your own voters and so frozen in the fear of your own colleagues.  In the end when push comes to shove only cowards scapegoat children. Your party ought to be ashamed of themselves in the dark of the night… (gavel interrupts the gentleman). Shame on all who do not stand up to those children, who won’t stand with the children of the border or the children of the neighborhoods in our communities who will not stand with this bill.

I actually enjoyed watching him squirm since they lost but it’s no joke.  Here’s a picture of Luis with Paul Ryan last year who he has been proud to call a friend and who can forget Gutierrez’s support of the Skittles campaign in support of Trayvon Martin who was killed by George Zimmerman in self-defense. ryan and gutierrez .

House Vote Underway: What is DACA and Who Is Doing What To Stop It?

 cruz

By Isabel Matos

UPDATE:  8/1/2014 10:30 Ted Cruz:  Very encouraging to see Republicans in the House uniting to‪#‎StopObamasAmnesty‬.

UPDATE 8/1/2014 10:20 p.m.  See Results here

The issue being discussed on the House floor is the DACA Program.  This is the program the Senator Cruz was referring that is allowing for Obama’s amnesty.  The vote on this Border Security Spending Bill has been underway.  For your information:

DACA stands for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals

The president has been granting amnesty via a provision which Senator Cruz says is the root cause of the border crisis.  The number you may still be able to call is 202 224 3121.  Tell your Congressman you are against amnesty and that you do not want DACA program in the spending bill that is being passed. Say you support Senator Cruz’s effort to stop Obama’s amnesty. Boehner’s Border Bill was stopped yesterday thanks to so many who called in to complain that it didn’t go far enough.  The vote tonight will be at 9 pm. I will add updates as needed.

From the Department of Homeland Security

Over the past three years, this Administration has undertaken an unprecedented effort to transform the immigration enforcement system into one that focuses on public safety, border security and the integrity of the immigration system. As the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) continues to focus its enforcement resources on the removal of individuals who pose a danger to national security or a risk to public safety, including individuals convicted of crimes with particular emphasis on violent criminals, felons, and repeat offenders, DHS will exercise prosecutorial discretion as appropriate to ensure that enforcement resources are not expended on low priority cases, such as individuals who came to the United States as children and meet other key guidelines.  Individuals who demonstrate that they meet the guidelines below may request consideration of deferred action for childhood arrivals for a period of two years, subject to renewal, and may be eligible for employment authorization.

You may request consideration of deferred action for childhood arrivals if you:

Were under the age of 31 as of June 15, 2012;Came to the United States before reaching your 16th birthday;Have continuously resided in the United States since June 15, 2007, up to the present time;Were physically present in the United States on June 15, 2012, and at the time of making your request for consideration of deferred action with USCIS;Entered without inspection before June 15, 2012, or your lawful immigration status expired as of June 15, 2012;Are currently in school, have graduated or obtained a certificate of completion from high school, have obtained a general education development (GED) certificate, or are an honorably discharged veteran of the Coast Guard or Armed Forces of the United States; and have not been convicted of a felony, significant misdemeanor, three or more other misdemeanors, and do not otherwise pose a threat to national security or public safety.

Individuals can call USCIS at 1-800-3… you can get the rest at their site.

In the meantime check out the spin being spewed all over this article in the Huffington Post. Predictable.
