I Have NO Words…

By Isabel Matos

Update April 23 2:21 pm. It is no secret. I am livid. I couldn’t help but be alarmed by the fact that my representatives are supposed to be anti-communist and yet, are pushing Amnesty. They are calling it Immigration Reform as you will see by clicking on the links from Tony Lee’s article to what Rep. Ros-Lehtinen said to Jose Diaz-Balart. You would think THEY (not me) would have access to simple information that can be found online. That is in part what this is about. Anyone can do a little homework. They could and should know this but they ignore it.

I am not here to make a dissertation on Communist Infiltration. I am here to make a statement about the ABUSE of the GOPe using my representatives to push their agenda which is a COMMUNIST PARTY USA agenda. I wanted to make sure that was clear, too.  It was the special interests who wrote S.744 last year. I hope journalists with more resources look into this in more depth: the names of the (specific) companies and/or organizations that have been behind these bills because they are mostly like writing what our representatives are so busy pushing.  Thank you for reading and viewing.  It shows support that is much appreciated.

I am really at a loss for words. I can’t express how low the GOPe has stooped and how utterly embarrassed and saddened I am by this latest and most stunning development regarding amnesty so far. It hits so close to home that it defies all logic for me. For two anti-communist representatives to be sharing goals with LaRaza in the push for amnesty shows just how much the situation has deteriorated and how out of control the establishment is in using our community leaders to push this idiotic agenda, and how out of touch and untouchable our representatives have become by keeping this dirty secret from the voters. This has gone far enough. They have been used and pampered to no end, to help the GOPe.

I hope you view the clip where I appealed to my representatives to not support amnesty last year. I hope you know I’ve done all I could to stop them. I cannot stand by and watch any longer, but I don’t know what else can effect change at this point.  It’s time to expose their increasingly traitorous actions to this country by pushing amnesty, and for our cause for freedom which is considered sacred. Never in a million years would I have imagined this to happen.

Pushing Amnesty for Republicans is a delusional goal. It is ill-advised (which makes you wonder where are they getting their information from). It helps the left. This latest is a mockery of the dreams of many legal immigrants who they are supposed to represent.  Many came to this country to escape big government, ironically the same one they are helping to create, wittingly or not.

They are out of touch as their daily focus is to pander to the special needs of illegals. As their status in the party grows, they forget what made them enter public service in the first place. I have described Rhinos with an H before and the two mentioned below may be turning into political animals themselves. They are leaving their humanity behind because they are abandoning their principles. Their live for their next perk, committee position or television appearance. (Now can you understand why I HATE THE GOPe?! It has taken good people and corrupted them.) They are living the high life but seem reduced to an existence of getting the next “meal” just like beasts. They don’t care. Party on! 

“Que Viva la Pepa!”

Who cares about the folks? It’s time to mingle with our enemies. How base and undignified. It has gone on long enough. It doesn’t matter if any of you are losing your souls in the process anymore. This  exceptional country matters more. In the end my words were just physical disgust turned inside out spilled on a page.

He’s been working hard. Awww..

In a Breitbart Article on August 11th, Tony Lee reported:

One of the 11 House Republicans La Raza praised for not voting to end President Barack Obama’s temporary amnesty program for illegal immigrants revealed that Rep. Paul Ryan has been working “every day” behind the scenes on an amnesty bill.

In a Friday appearance on MSNBC’s Jose Diaz-Balart, Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL) predicted that Congress is “going to be passing an immigration bill” in the future, “thanks to your brother, Mario Diaz-Balart.”

“Mario and Paul Ryan and good leaders are working every day toward that, and we hope that it will happen,” she said.

Ros-Lehtinen and other members of the GOP earned La Raza’s praise for voting against the border bill that would have denied Obama the right to use federal funds to implement temporary amnesty.

Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart (R-FL), whom Ros-Lehtinen referenced, was reportedly “ready to announce to House leaders that a majority of House Republicans supported his immigration reform bill,” and secured “soft commitments from at least 120 Republicans.” Ryan was reportedly working with Diaz-Balart to get support for his bill, which would have allowed Republicans to bring it to the floor and then vote against it, enabling it to pass with Democrat support.

After House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) was ousted because of his support for amnesty, House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) told President Obama that he would not bring up an immigration bill in the House this year. Though Boehner said he wanted to get an amnesty bill through in the next Congress, Diaz-Balart asked House leaders to give his bill one more chance this year before being denied.

“I’m seriously disappointed,” Diaz-Balart said then. “We have a historic opportunity to fix a system everyone knows is broken. We’re squandering that opportunity. The bottom line is we have a bill that is ready to go. We had bipartisan support. And yet I’ve been told we’re not going to move forward this year.”  END OF ARTICLE.

What a great way to end this blog post. I had been keeping these pictures handy for a while and it’s time to start taking the gloves off and exposing what has been going on down here for years.

EPIC Compilation of Headlines 2013 With Updates by Izzlovesfox1

 

marco center of attention

by Isabel Matos

What a difference a year makes! I hardly talk about Marco Rubio anymore. That’s because he had a really bad year last year and Sarah made an example of him after being caught in a lie where he told a Spanish-speaking audience legalization first, then secure the border.  That summer he voted for the Senate’s Bill S.744 and lost support among all the Conservatives I know. He also lost friends locally, which takes a lot, given their enthusiasm for him when he first won the Senate. jayz and beyonce in cuba

The picture of JayZ and his wife, Beyonce, who ended up going to Cuba in April last year, staying in a hotel overlooking the picturesque Havana harbor must have been embarrassing because he had quoted JayZ as a poet during Rand Paul’s filibuster, “It was all good a week ago.  What a difference seven days makes.”

JayZ’s trip was offensive – a horrible and painful reminder of the tyranny and slavery on the island that Cubans still seek to escape from.  He and Beyonce visited areas off-limits to most Cubans living on the island. They ignored reality and are hypocrites for justifying their visa to be at a cultural seminar with students of music.

It showed a lack of respect and just plain ignorance – no conscience for those living under conditions that will not change any time soon.  Anyone who says that easing the embargo will help Cuba just does not understand what is going on.

Beyonce also offended Cuban-Americans just prior to this trip after being photographed with a Castro youth group dedicated to revolution like Che Guevara. What to expect from someone who got paid $1 million to dance for Libyan Dictator Khaddafi (now dead). Even ignorance does not cut as deep as indifference to others’ suffering.

So, getting back to #ThrowbackThursday. This post was fun to put together. It took a long time to make a compilation of the TOP TEN izzlovesfox1 clips. I followed-up on each headline to keep telling the story to refresh the page on my (our collective) political journey, because…

NEW IS NEWS BUT STORIES ARE FOREVER.

The TOP TEN clips include tapes I made about Marco Rubio (with updates), Rhinos (with an update),  Headlines from March (with updates), CPAC Infiltrators, Rand Paul (with updates), Deportation, Amnesty (with updates), and the top three clips at the end. There is a little humor, some serious and lots of tough love for those who STILL DON’T GET that it is not up to us to answer to politicians. It is up to them to earn our trust, respect and confidence, especially AFTER they are elected, not just during a campaign when they promise the world.

Are voters more aware that their party is against them? That was my stated goal last year; unfortunately, it is hard to convey to some who do not care to see THE TRUTH about the politicians they cheer on.

rand paul drones

Rand Paul made huge headlines 2013, but they were all for his personal enrichment and campaign. Rand Paul may be a fighter, but he’s fighting for the wrong things. His attempt to make this party One Big Happy Family should be enough to make anyone nervous. He invited Chris Christie to a beer summit, his manager signed on with American Crossroads last year (while he was filibustering to protect the rights of Americans from drone attacks, which he reversed his position on 30 days later) and he has repeatedly insisted the party has to “evolve and adapt” if it is to survive. Some of his remarks border on veiled criticism of and disingenuous support of the Conservative base.

rand and trump

Rand Paul is on a path to political suicide like Rubio was last year if continues on this path of a softening our party (Charmin anyone?) and taking the Tea Party for granted. Why is he making a mistake? Because he hasn’t sold Conservatism to those he has been pandering to. He has been sloppy on policies to (try) to gain votes from all sides.

Rand Paul has asked Ted Nugent to apologize to the President, criticized Ted Cruz for distorting Reagan’s foreign policy, endorsed Mitch McConnell, the list goes on. I’ve heard from people who were at CPAC that his presence on stage is nothing like Sarah’s. He is not electric at all. He doesn’t stand tall (his “presence” on stage and physically). He is a not-so-exciting speaker who doesn’t show command as much as delivery of platitudes we hear all the time. He does not have the star power like so many try to portray him as having. Add to that he doesn’t keep his stance on any issue consistently and you’ve got a garden-variety politician, a RINO insider. His talk is all Bush Mush lately.

Paul Ryan ten dimes

Ryan, bless his heart Sarah says.. Is making the news for things he should have never done in 2009 when he was FOR Tarp when his budget plans were still a joke. What I remember most was his palling around with a known terrorist advocate and communist agitator, Luis V. Gutierrez. Ryan is clearly out of touch. That’s evident in his so-called outreach out to communities he would love to pander to. He has been a RINO and is next-in-line to Boehner.

3 rinos

It’s easy to see Jeb as being obscure as always, not outshining anyone except for saying stupid things. Even though Hispanics give birth to more children, he said “Hispanics are more fertile”. He also said Ted Cruz does not have solutions. (Well.. that’s because it’s UP to PEOPLE not POLITICIANS, Jeb, to come up with them!) Jeb’s sense of relevance is distorted. He also said breaking the laws to provide for one’s family as an illegal alien is an act of love.

Like a shadow or black cloud in our party we can’t get rid of, he’s either lurking in the background pushing others to do his dirty work for him. He announces he does not get his name in polls to sound like he doesn’t want to be president, but in reality it’s because the results of those polls are so negative he wouldn’t want them public). He can only have a glowing story about him probably by someone who has been paid directly or indirectly to do so. The fact is he IS going to fundraisers with billionaires like Shelon Adelson and it is to launch a non-campaign campaign. His father built the GOP machine as we know it, so he feels he’s entitled to being the next Bush presidential nominee.

Jeb does not make sense when he talks, which is why McCain probably said he is the smartest man he knows. Really. Saying stupid things or stupid comments are the only thing he is good at. Remember he said he would govern like Lyndon B. Johnson (that was last year before CPAC) if he had the chance.  He is a royal pain in our side.

My message: RUN, JEB, RUN!  Bring it. Get it out of your system. Immigration Reform is a huge fail. It was in 1986. Nothing’s changed.  Keep talking. To those who think their DUTY to support you: You’re just like lying dogs.

Let’s see what the GOP gaffes are in store for us this year. I thought Thad Cochran’s comment about not knowing what the Tea Party was about was a real humdinger, but typical  GOPe will always manage to find new ways to dig their grave a little deeper each time. Reince Priebus did so when he didn’t mention Sarah …wait. That was this year.

It was all good a year ago.. not!

Video: Sarah Palin on Paul Ryan’s Proposed Budget: “Bless His Heart”

palinthumbsdown

By Gary P Jackson

Earlier this week, on Facebook, Governor Sarah Palin ripped Big Government liberal Congressman Paul Ryan’s latest budget proposal calling it “not an April Fool’s joke” but a joke nonetheless.

My Own Final Four Bracket For America’s Future

Holy Moly! Are you kidding? You’d think one who is representing the mighty Badgers, who made it to the Final Four based on sacrificial work ethic and discipline that obviously pays off in the end, he who represents the great state of Wisconsin that hosts this underdog celebrated college basketball team, would understand that future success depends on hard work and sacrifices.

The latest Ryan (R, Wisconsin) Budget is not an April Fool’s joke. But it really IS a joke because it is STILL not seeing the problem; it STILL is not proposing reining in wasteful government overspending TODAY, instead of speculating years out that some future Congress and White House may possibly, hopefully, eh-who-knows, take responsibility for today’s budgetary selfishness and shortsightedness to do so.

THIS is the definition of insanity.

Do we still not understand how dangerous it is to allow government to grow unchecked as we shackle ourselves with massive debt – a good portion of which is held by foreign nations who don’t necessarily like us? If we can’t balance the budget today, what on earth makes us think it will happen at some future date? The solution is staring us in the face. We need to rein in spending today, and don’t tell me there is nothing to cut when we know every omnibus bill is loaded with pork and kickbacks.

Reading the article linked below gave me the same reaction that my daughter just caused when she punked me with a very unfunny April Fool’s Day announcement. As my Dad would say after these April Fool’s announcements, “This would kill a lesser man.” This out-of-control debt is killing our economic future.

~ Sarah Palin

Here’s the article:

http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2014/04/01/Tea-Party-Paul-Ryan-s-New-Budget-A-Work-of-April-Fool-s-Day-Fiction

Of course many of the usual suspects were quick to chastise Governor Palin, claiming she was either somehow unqualified to comment, or hopelessly unrealistic. Of course what’s hopelessly unrealistic is thinking we can afford to keep allowing government and it’s massive debt to continue to grow. Ryan’s budget, at best, RAISES debt by TRILLIONS of dollars. That’s not only idiotic, but totally immoral.

The only silly people involved here are those that take Paul Ryan, and his budget, seriously.

For the other naysayers, who thing Governor Palin is just too “radical” in her ideas to save America and get this out of control budget under control, I’d like to point out that she was a highly successful two term Mayor, who turned a small dirt road village into the fastest growing city in Alaska. She built major infrastructure, including roads, water, sewer, and so on. She brought in major retailers, which spawned new local businesses, transforming the sleepy little berg into the trading hub for the entire Mat-Su Valley, an area roughly the size of Joe Biden’s home state of Delaware!

Oh, and she did all of this while LOWERING taxes every single year in office! [She also cut debt, AND her own salary, just to show people she was serious!] In fact, the only major debt Palin created was to build a new sports arena/community center, that residents voted to fund through bonds. The arena was finished on time and under budget, and the bonds paid off early.

Of course, Palin’s ability to surgically remove wasteful spending and debt became legendary, once she took office as Governor of Alaska. Going to work immediately after being sworn in, Governor Palin went through the state budget line by line, cutting spending to the absolute bone.

Governor Palin made headlines for putting the useless state jet airplane [that Governor Murkoski purchased fly to the Lower 48] for sale on eBay, a marketing ploy that got it sold through a broker. People also took note when she fired the chef and other nonessential staff at the Governor’s Mansion, and even refused an official car and driver, choosing to drive herself in her own personal vehicle, whenever possible. She really made headlines by turning down a $25,000 a year raise the Alaska legislature voted to give her and the Lt Governor. [who also turned down his $25K raise]

While those were major things, Governor Palin also sweated the small details, which is where the significant debt reduction and savings came in.

In just two years Governor Palin created more than $12 BILLION in savings, and a $5 BILLION budget surplus.

More on Governor Palin’s budgeting was including in Whitney and Stacy’s exhaustive piece detailing Governor Sarah Palin’s Incredible Executive Accomplishments

Budgeting and Spending

* Cut state spending between 2007 and 2010 by 9.5%.

* Reduced federal earmark requests by more than 80%

In FY2007, Gov. Frank Murkowski requested $350 million in federal appropriations, which Gov. Palin reduced to $256 million in FY2008, $198 million in FY2009, and $69 million in FY2010.

* Invested $5 billion in state savings, overhauled education funding, and implemented the Senior Benefits Program to provide support for low-income older Alaskans.

* Stopped the “Bridge to Nowhere” and wanted to redirect the federal funds to Minnesota after the bridge collapse in 2007. In an email to her staff, she wrote:

[W]e MUST come out with a strong position against AK ‘ s perceived ” Bridge to Nowhere” so we quit looking clueless and selfish across the nation and can clear up the perception that the Gravina project is the state‘ s priority . The $350m bridge is not our priority.

The nation needs to be spending $ on fixing what we have – Minnesota needs ” bridge money” today more than we need a few Alaskans to perpetuate the nonsensical notion that our Gravina earmark is more important than fixing aged infrastructure. We would gain so much if we get that message out there – that the nation can pull, and work , together and make wise decisions on federal priorities … we should see that earmark redirected to Minnesota ‘ s tragedy be the Gravina bridge isn’t going to happen on our watch anyway.

* Rejected much of President Obama’s “stimulus money” in 2009. During a press conference on the matter, she said:

We are not requesting funds intended to just grow government. We are not requesting more money for normal day-to-day operations of government as part of this economic stimulus package. In essence we say no to operating funds for more positions in government.

Also stating in a press release:

As I wrote to our congressional delegation on January 7, our administration recognizes that President-elect Obama and the congressional leadership of both parties favor the use of formulas to ensure fairness among the states and to avoid the earmark abuses of the past.

We also have to be mindful about the effect of the stimulus package on the national debt and the future economic health of the country. We won’t achieve long-term stability if we continue borrowing massive sums from foreign countries and remain dependent on foreign sources of oil and gas.

* Proposed a $2.6 billion investment in the Education Fund to help fund public education for the future.

* Used her line-item veto to cut more than a quarter billion in superfluous spending in 2007:

The Governor vetoed nearly a quarter of a billion dollars of projects contained within Senate Bill 53. Establishing a budget process, the Governor focused her decisions on the Constitutionally-mandated services of education, public safety and health, and infrastructure.

* 2007 vetoes included projects such as berry economic development, the AT&T Sports Center, a Salmon Study, a tennis court at the Lions Club, batting cages, gun club facility improvements, motocross course construction, a virus free seed potato project, and numerous other items placed in the budget that were not the State of Alaska’s responsibility.

* In 2008, Governor Palin vetoed more than a quarter billion in superfluous spending:

In all, $268 million was vetoed from the budget bills. “The budgets will provide needed services, will leverage other funds and will make a significant investment in Alaska’s future,” Governor Palin said.

* Vetoed 361 line-items in 2008.

* Utilized line item reductions to reduce proposed spending by $80.3 million in 2009.

* Instituted a temporary hiring freeze to reduce expenditures during a period of unanticipated low oil prices in 2009.

* Cut spending more than 33% in FY2010 from FY 2009’s budget.

* Signed energy legislation suspending the state motor fuel tax.

* Provide Alaskan residents with a “resource rebate” to help offset high energy costs:

After funding the state’s priorities, putting billions away in savings and still seeing a budget surplus, the Legislature agreed to a special one-time payment, sharing part of our resource wealth with Alaskans, who under our Constitution are the owners in common of these resources, and who I believe can decide better than government how to use that share.

* Signed legislation opposing a federal aviation fuel tax.

* Lowered unemployment insurance tax rates:

* For the second year in a row, unemployment insurance tax rates have dropped.

The 2009 unemployment insurance tax rates will be the lowest Alaska employers have experienced in 29 years,” Governor Sarah Palin announced today. An employer in the average rate class will pay approximately $93 less for each employee than in 2008. The rates are applicable to the first $32,700 of the individual employee earnings.

* Cut property taxes as Mayor of Wasilla. She eliminated small business inventory taxes; cut property tax mil levy every year she was in office (6 years straight)

Fiscal Management

*Reformed the state’s pension program by ensuring a successful transition from a defined benefits to a defined contributions system and addressing the $8 billion unfunded liability in Alaska state’s retirements, making it more solvent and leading to a decrease of 34.6% in state liabilities during her tenure.

* Left Alaska with an improved credit rating during and following her tenure as Governor:

Standard & Poor’s raised Alaska’s credit rating from AA to AA+ in April, 2008:

Our fiscal prudence is being recognized by the financial markets. It affirms our efforts to control government spending and live within our means,” Governor Palin said. “We have been working hard advocating for Alaska, both within the state and outside, and I am pleased to see it paying off.

* Moody’s upgraded Alaska’s credit rating to AAA in November 2010 and Standard & Poor’s upgraded Alaska to AAA too in January in large part due to Governor Palin’s policies as indicated below. Each italicized bullet point is a point provided by Standard and Poor’s as an indicator for credit upgrade:

The state’s strong financial management and generally conservative forecasting”: during her tenure, Governor Palin cut spending 9.5% and reduced earmarks 80%.

The state’s financial flexibility, enhanced by the maintenance of large reserves derived from windfall oil revenues since fiscal year 2008”: Governor Palin’s oil tax reform plan implemented in FY2008 was a severance or production tax on oil companies—a tax they paid as a recompense for developing the Alaskan owned natural resources has helped create fiscal reserves for the state.

The state’s moderate debt burden”: During her tenure, Alaska’s overall debt decreased nearly more than 157 million dollars between FY2007 (her predecessor’s final budget year) and FY2010 (her final budget year), while debt outstanding increased at 4.2% annual rate (between FY 2007 and FY 2010) compared to the 6.8% annual rate of her predecessor (between FY2003 and FY2007).

An accumulation of multiple budget reserves equal to more than 200 percent of the general fund budget”: Due to legislation like ACES and the frugal budgeting of Governors Palin and Parnell, Alaska now has a 12 billion dollars in savings. During the VP campaign, Governor Palin was able to tout a more than $5 billion surplus.

* Spent less on travel expense than her two predecessors despite having a larger family.

In fact, she spent over $913,000 less on personal expenses in her first two years than former Governor Frank Murkowski did his last two years.

* Rejected a gubernatorial pay raise.

Gov. Sarah Palin didn’t ask for a pay raise and won’t accept one during her current term.

* Took a voluntary pay cut as mayor to set the tone for her administration.

Leading up to the 2012 Presidential race, Whitney put together a comparison between Governor Palin, and the Republican Governors who would all run for President. The comparison between Palin’s budget competency at that of others, including Rick Perry, Tim Pawlenty, and Mitt Romney is both staggering and breathtaking.

While the differences in both spending and liabilities between those looked at is an eye opener. For example, debt increase under Governor Palin was a mere 4.2% annually, much less than under the previous governors of Alaska, as compared to Texas Governor Rick Perry who grew outstanding debt by a mind-blowing 184.2%, or 20.5% per year, the REAL eye opener though is this:

Governor Palin was the ONLY governor to actually REDUCE her state’s liabilities and did so by an incredible 34.6%, or 11.5% per year.

This compares to Mitt Romney, who had the lowest INCREASE of liabilities: 18.7%, or 4.7% per year and Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty who has the dubious honor of beating Rick Perry for the greatest INCREASE: 40.7%, or 5.8% per year. Both Pawlenty and Perry saw significantly larger percentages of INCREASES in their state liabilities than Governor Palin’s amazing 34.6% DECREASE.

Bottom line, to all those who think Governor Palin has no clue about budgeting, WISE UP! Governor Palin is the nation’s leader in fiscal responsibility and budget control. If ANYONE has a right to comment on Paul Ryan’s joke of a budget, it’s Governor Sarah Palin!

I wrote all of the above to get us to Governor Palin’s appearance on Hannity Thursday night.

With the Governor speaking from Senator Lizbeth Benacquisto’s Florida cookout, where she formally gave the Senator her endorsement, Sarah and Hannity started off with small talk about her Tonight Show appearance and of course whether the Governor is thinking about a run herself. Then Sean made note that he had Paul Ryan on his radio show that day. Ryan had said if he could only talk with Governor Palin he felt he could convince her that he had a solid plan packed with fiscal goodness. As you’ll see in the video, Governor Palin is shaking her head “no” the entire time Hannity is telling her this. The first words out of her mouth being “Bless his heart“!

Anyone with an ounce of common sense knows Governor Palin is right. Budgets are never binding, and the idea that someone can rely on the fantasy of budget cuts 10 years down the road, leading to a balanced budget, is simply delusional.

As Ronald Reagan was fond of saying, the solutions to our problems are simple. NOT easy, but simple. We MUST take the same sort of approach that Governor Palin took in Alaska. We MUST go through the federal budget LINE-BY-LINE and make tough choices and real cuts. It’s the ONLY way the budget can be balanced, and America can survive.

Immigration Reform (is) For Dummies.

stop amnesty  immigration reform

I am laying out ten talking points to argue against the passing of the House Amnesty Bill.  There is no reason for Republicans to even think of doing this. It is self-defeating.  They insist this bill is not Amnesty.  They refuse to accept the fact that Hispanics do not create more businesses, but poverty. They cannot promise border security and refuse to acknowledge the influence of the Communist Party and other factions heck-bent on making our system a one-party system. I have spoken about these points before, but it must be repeated.

This is part One of Two, but the most important arguments are here I believe. It takes a very long time to edit, but since neither one of my representatives are holding a town hall, and I can’t drive to the nearest 4 hour away location, I decide to help by offering our own talking points. Numbers USA is phenomenal!  You should check out their page today.  Conservatives need to learn to be pro-active and not just reactive.  It shows weakness that we’re not dominating the conversation, but then it’s the Rinos, not us, that are the problem.  We are all doing a great job by keeping our voices heard. We just have to keep flexing our muscles and speaking out against the injustices. Thank you. Enjoy the show.

Paul Ryan is Pushing Amnesty with Luis Gutierrez Who is Bad News for This Country’s Security!

Meet Luis V. Gutierrez.  He is a key member of the Gang of 7 co-writing the House Amnesty Bill (see my article “The Communist Party USA has infiltrated the GOP. I knew it!”) I was browsing on the internet today and found this:

It is, as you can see, the cover of this Communist dirt-bag’s page saying: “As a member of the House Judiciary Committee I’m requesting that Chairman Robert Goodlatte hold hearings into the Trayvon Martin case: www.bit.ly/15L9ZfV ‪#‎JusticeForTrayvon‬ ‪#‎HoodiesUp‬ — at United States Capitol.” (Robert Goodlatte, for your information, is one of the five House Committee chairmen on Benghazi.. the one which has pretty much absolved Hillary Clinton and the Pentagon from any wrong-doing in Benghazi. They say it isn’t over, but we know there will be nothing done. Who can believe a word the GOP tells us?)

“As a member of the House Judiciary Committee I’ve requested hearings into the Trayvon Martin case ASAP. When any child is gunned down and no one goes to jail, it is incumbent on lawmakers at the highest level of government to investigate whether justice has been done.” -LVG

Now, I don’t know about you, the reader, but I am pretty sick and tired of hearing about the Zimmerman trial since it was over two days ago.  The verdict was not guilty, and that should have put all discussion to rest.  Mr. Gutierrez is a shameless agitator and race baiter, and Paul Ryan should be ashamed of himself for being such good friends with him.  Within an hour of the post above, a Spanish-speaking blog turned it into an article. I imagine this will incite even more protests, only among Hispanics. One of the commenters said “Even though Zimmerman is Hispanic, he is still a murderer.”  It is absolutely appalling.rep gutierrez

Luis Gutierrez is the absurd company Paul Ryan keeps. If people in high positions like Paul Ryan are not looking out for us who will? It is Paul Ryan’s job to protect us.  Rep. Gutierrez is a former Marxist-Leninist and has been agressive with immigration reform, so of course I am concerned. I wanted to look into his past a little more. I found a great clip by Mark Levin that spells out exactly who he is.  After this event took place, which Luis Gutierrez proudly posted on his wall on April 22, 2013:

Crossing the Aisle to Get Immigration Reform Done This Year (30 photos) 

On Monday, Paul Ryan and I met with Chicago’s immigrant community, local leaders, and clergy in the morning; and then spoke together about the need for immigration reform at the City Club of Chicago.  Paul Ryan is a great speaker and a persuasive messenger on the topic of immigration reform with other Republicans. We don’t agree on many issues outside of immigration reform, but working with him gives me confidence that we will get immigration reform done this year

April 23rd, 2013: “I would not call us odd.” -Luis V. Gutierrez
 

April 23rd: Mark Levin talks about how disappointed he is in Paul Ryan visiting the City Club of Chicago, an outreach to radical left-wing nut jobs like Luis Gutierrez, highlighting throughout the show the importance of being against Immigration Reform because of it being a question of national security.

Mark reads a letter from Deborah Burlingame whose brother had been murdered in the cockpit on 9/11.  In the letter she expresses her disappointment in Ryan, citing his dismissing the Boston bombings relevance in an effort to push through immigration reform without due consideration to the contents of the legislation. 

(Deborah to Ryan): This dismissal was especially chilling given the fact that your Immigration Reform partner, Rep. Gutierrez was the chief spokesman for the political wing of the FALN [the Spanish acronym for Armed Forces of National Liberation] terrorist organization which carried out 146 bombings in a 25-year period, killing 9 people and injuring and maiming dozens. 

Rep. Gutierrez was the chief advocate for the pardoning of 16 convicted  FALN members, whose sentences ranged up to 90 years, men and women so dangerous they were shackled for their trial and the presiding judge wore a gun under his robes because they had threatened to kill him in open court.

Rep. Gutierrez against all evidence, including FBI undercover videotapes of these people making bombs, called them political prisoners, and threatened to marshal the Puerto Rican community against the Clintons, Vice President Gore, then preparing a presidential run as well.

It’s not surprising therefore that Mr. Gutierrez would be unalarmed by the fact that a wannabe terrorist under scrutiny by the FBI would be a candidate for U.S. citizenship. Terrorists have a history of defrauding the political system, gaming the political asylum process and using the guest worker program to gain temporary access into the United States only to disappear into the population. Our over-burdened system doesn’t bother to look for them.  Several of the 1993 bombers came in through the Ad-Jobs program. The 9/11 hijackers overstayed tourist visas.  The Millennium bomber gamed the immigration system in Canada and tried to enter the U.S. through Port, Washington. He was only stopped because of an astute border agent.

Please be warned, Mr. Gutierrez is not a good-faith partner in this effort. His history with the FALN is proof of that. The record is replete with his letters and threats. I am including the piece I wrote for the Wall Street Journal.  All of my source documents were found in the Congressional investigation that took place in the wake of these pardons. And among the people I interviewed was the chief FBI agent Rick Haun who hunted the FALN for years, as well as the New York Bomb Squad whose officers were permanently disabled in those bombings.

I have informed Joseph Conner whose father was killed in the FALN Fraunces Tavern bombing in New York City, of your partnership with Mr. Gutierrez and your joint affirmation that the Boston bombings had no relevance to immigration legislation.

Very truly yours, Deborah Burlingame, Co-founder of the 9/11 Families for a Safe and Strong America.  http://therightscoop.com/mark-levin-paul-ryan-making-it-difficult-for-me-to-support-him-for-president-should-he-choose-to-run/

*************

I do not understand why representatives in Washington feel the need to be friendly with the left. If they wanted to be heroes, they could just follow in the footsteps of Ted Cruz and have all the love and praise in the world from their base, but they don’t look to us for that. They act like scared outcasts who want to be IN in DC. Here is Luis Gutierrez on April 16th, prior to Ryan’s visit, working it!

This is not Ryan’s first time in Chicago but it is his first time at a pro-immigrant event in our pro-immigrant city. Let’s show Rep. Ryan – an influential voice among House Republicans – the enthusiasm and strength of Chicago’s pro-immigrant community, and in so doing impress upon him that by standing with immigrants he’s standing on the right side of history.  Join me next Monday…

When I saw these pictures I just wanted to sink my head in my hands and scream. Earth to Paul Ryan! Pushing this bill is wrong for America. What are you thinking? Nothing you are saying makes sense. Stop it!

I am not pleased at all that the Amnesty Bill is not being criticized enough. I know we are overburdened, but this bill cannot pass! We must not be like sitting ducks.  Trey Gowdy recently came out a little weak-kneed as well, claiming that the system is broken and needed to be fixed. Wrong! That is a communist talking point. The system is fine and it does not need fixing!  We cannot be weak-kneed or lazy. We have to be proactive. We ARE dealing with communists and cunning snakes. We cannot give an inch. With all of this courting, friendliness, and brainwashing by the infiltrators that is going on, who would?
erie house idiot!Proud of yourself there, Ryan?

Against All Odds, We May Prevail.

no to amnesty!

Yesterday was the first day Immigration Reform went to the House for legislation. Boehner is a liar and a traitor who has recruited at least one Marxist-Leninist to co-write the Bill, Rep. Luis Gutierrez, former member of the Socialist Party in Puerto Rico, and Xavier Becerra, a known amnesty activist.  Luckily, the snake Marco Rubio is not a Representative, but Paul Ryan is just as bad. He is weak. He doesn’t question his superior, John Boehner, blindly following what orders he is given. His job is to convince others in the House that this bill must pass. Or else. (Or else what?) Our GOP has become Alynsky-itish, hasn’t it? Seems like their association with the experts themselves has turned them on us. Paul Ryan is disrespecting the will of the people AND the American Rule of Law.

I know the cards are stacked against us, and I have no faith in Boehner whatsoever, but I am challenging everyone I know, you the reader, and everyone you know to call your Representatives today.  No, it is not fun, but I wouldn’t ask what I wouldn’t do myself. Here are some numbers (via AGU) that you can use. A lot of time phone lines in DC can be hard to get through to.  Speaker Boehner’s district offices can be called if the DC lines are busy:

Butler County: (513) 779-5400

Miami County: (937) 339-1524

Representative Paul Ryan:

DC Office: (202) 225-3031

Janesville: (608) 752-4050

Kenosha: (262) 654-1901

Racine: (262) 654-1901

Here are three suggestions you can use when calling your Representative/s:

1) AMNESTY does not win votes for the GOP (Pew Research Center Stats): 

REPUBLICANS and HISPANIC VOTE

1980 56% Carter Reagan 35%

1984 61% Mondale Reagan 37%

1988 69% Dukakis Bush 41 30%

1992 61% Clinton Bush 41 25%

1996 72% Clinton Dole 21%

2000 62% Gore Bush 43 35%

2004 58% Kerry Bush 43 40%

2008 67% Obama McCain 31%

2012 71% Obama Romney 27%

2)  Amnesty is a Communist-driven agenda that will create a permanent progressive majority

http://thespeechatimeforchoosing.wordpress.com/2013/07/09/the-communist-party-usa-has-infiltrated-the-gop-i-knew-it/

3) Amnesty will be costly, a social burden, and will make way for more illegals to come.

The Difference between Embracing Bipartisanship and Eschewing Obsessive Partisanship

by Whitney Pitcher

 

The recently passed fiscal cliff deal was heralded by the media as a “bipartisan compromise”.  Democratic Senator Diane Feinstein emphasized that the deal needed a “bipartisan basis”. Republican Senator John Boozman called the bill a “bipartisan solution” that would “tackle the financial troubles are country is facing”. The bill ultimately received a total of 125 Republicans and 219 Democrats between both the House and Senate. The bill indeed was bipartisan, but what was the price of bipartisanship? Eighty percent of the revenue from the bill will go to President Obama’s cronies through incentives and subsidies. The Congressional Budget Office ultimately determined that the touted “balanced approach” really meant that there would be 10 dollars in tax increases for every dollar in spending cuts leading to an additional $4 trillion in deficits.Additionally, the payroll tax holiday expired as part of the deal. It is indeed arguable that the tax holiday shouldn’t have existed in the first place, as the holiday could contribute to the insolvency of Social Security. However, allowing that tax holiday to expire while claiming that the deal didn’t “raise” taxes is a disingenuous claim by politicians pretending to champions for the middle class while 77% of Americans see less money in their paycheck. In order to face the political reality of a looming, media declared fiscal cliff that would have meant deep across the board spending cuts and tax increases, Congress ignored the fiscal reality of our present and future to spend more… but bipartisanship!

The media has touted the bipartisanship of both President Obama and Governor Chris Christie in recent months as well. President Obama has chosen to appoint former Republican Senator Chuck Hagel to be Secretary of Defense. Hagel supported Obama 2008 candidacy and has taken some stances on Iran and Israel that have made many leery of him as a Defense Secretary. Following the devastation of Hurricane Sandy, Governor Christie embraced and praised President Obama’s response while more recently trashing Republicans for ultimately waiting a few days to pass a clean bill for Hurricane Sandy aid, rather than the pork laden bill that Christie preferred. Both of these politicians “sacrificed” in their bipartisanship–Obama his partisan stance for his policy stance and political friendship and Christie his party’s purported conservative platform for his political advantage.

Abandoning a party platform (i.e. principle) for the sake of party happens often in politics. It’s called obsessive partisanship. Congressman Paul Ryan joined in the aforementioned “bipartisanship” when he voted for the fiscal cliff deal, noting that he “had the guts to vote for it” and that allowing this plan to pass meant that “now we can finally debate spending”. However, when Congressman Ryan had the opportunity to “debate spending” when President Bush was in office, he didn’t. As I have written before:

He is an intelligent Congressman who has shown leadership in the House on the budget and making strong stances against Obamacare, particularly the IPAB—the unelected board of bureaucrats tasked with managing how Medicare pays. Ryan has served as a Congressman in Washington DC since 1999 and worked for House members for several years during the early and mid 1990s as well. However, despite his strong stance against the Obama administration’s profligate spending, he also supported the TARP bailout during the Bush administration and the auto bailout set in motion during the Bush administration.

Paul Ryan is just one example. Individuals on both sides of the aisle are guilty of obsessive partisanship. When President Bush raised the debt ceiling, then Senator Obama called it “a failure of leadership”, only to raise the debt ceiling himself in his first term. He is poised to raise it yet again. This is obsessive partisanship. It’s one thing for a liberal or a conservative to vote or govern according to his or her principles. It is another thing to abandon one’s alleged principles for the sake of party or political expediency.

Thankfully, there are some individuals who have eschewed obsessive partisanship for the sake of maintaining their principles. Sarah Palin is a prime example:

She had garnered a reputation for bucking her own party– calling out the Alaska GOP chair for doing party business on state time, taking on and defeating an incumbent governor in her own party, cleaning up the ethical mess caused by that incumbent she defeated, and even suing a GOP presidential administration to enable energy development in Alaska.

There are other examples as well. Just this week former Illinois Republican gubernatorial candidate, Adam Andrezjewski filed a lawsuit against Republican comptroller Judy Baar Topinka to make the state of Illinois checkbook publicly available. Topinka had earlier denied Andrezjewski’s organization’s (For the Good of Illinois) FOIA request. He is suing a member of his own party for the sake of making a state in fiscal shambles more transparent. Making state spending publicly available was embraced by Governor Palin as well and is an example of obsessive partisanship eschewed. When Governor Palin launched that effort in Alaska in 2008, it was praised by both Grover Norquist and Democrat Ralph Nader. She willing exposed the spending she signed into law at the risk of political criticism.

This why pro market, pro transparency populism needs to be embraced. Americans have become jaded to politics where their kids’ futures are put in jeopardy because politicians in Washington want to play kick the can for the sake of their own political expediency. Politicians too often point the finger of blame and broken promises only to find that when they point fingers they have three pointing back at them. Is a pro market, pro transparency approach to governance idealistic? Perhaps. Do we deserve it? With our propensity to vote the same folks into office election after election, maybe we don’t, but America’s future does deserve it. We can’t continue to sacrifice our fiscal reality for the sake of our bipartisan, but obsessively partisan political reality.

Under the Magnifying Glass: A Tale of Two Vice Presidential Candidacies

by Whitney Pitcher

In the weeks following the election, Republicans are assessing what went wrong that led to their defeat. Much to the criticism of some in the party, Governor Romney has hypothesized that President Obama won because of the “gifts” that he offered minorities. Others have speculated that the GOP was not able to effectively reach out to the changing demographics of America or that the party misinterpreted polls and got cocky. Others have pointed to poorly designed and implemented GOTV technology.Compared to the 2008 election, there is one reason for defeat that is conspicuously missing from the “Wednesday morning” political strategizing — blaming the GOP choice for vice president.

Paul Ryan, of course, was not the reason for Mitt Romney’s defeat. His nomination provided a spark for many in the Republican party. He was an articulate voice for the GOP ticket and a seemingly good fit for a Romney campaign nearly singularly focused on the economy. He is an intelligent Congressman who has shown leadership in the House on the budget and making strong stances against Obamacare, particularly the IPAB—the unelected board of bureaucrats tasked with managing how Medicare pays. Ryan has served as a Congressman in Washington DC since 1999 and worked for House members for several years during the early and mid 1990s as well. However, despite his strong stance against the Obama administration’s profligate spending, he also supported  the TARP bailout during the Bush administration and the auto bailout set in motion during the Bush administration. He has been a good Republican soldier in Washington D.C. for nearly twenty years, which made him ideal for Romney, especially as someone from the same state (a swing state too) as the current RNC chair.

In 2008, Sarah Palin was quite the opposite in some respects. She was the governor of Alaska–about as far away from Washington D.C. as one can get. She had garnered a reputation for bucking her own party– calling out the Alaska GOP chair for doing party business on state time, taking on and defeating an incumbent governor in her own party, cleaning up the ethical mess caused by that incumbent she defeated, and even suing a GOP presidential administration to enable energy development in Alaska. During the campaign, she wanted to abandon the micromanaging of her handlers and speak on passion and principles rather than talking points. She was the embodiment of the feminist ideal–a great family, a successful career, not to mention a state basketball championship and the ability to shoot a moose and cook it up for dinner. This proved to be a perfect target for the media, the Democrats, and GOP Establishment to go after Governor Palin, not only for the blamecasting loss, but also the treatment and coverage throughout the campaign, which was much harsher than what was shown Paul Ryan.

The Romney campaign was, of course, smart enough not to hire the likes of Steve Schmidt and Nicolle Wallace (unlike MSNBC and ABC), so the source of much of the redistribution of blame of the 2008 campaign was missing from the 2012 campaign. Ryan was not a threat to the GOP machine, because in many ways, he was already a part of it. There was no need for Romney campaign staffers, some of whom had trashed Governor Palin during the 2008 general election, to send out emails to coordinate a strategy to shield themselves from blame if they lost, as Steve Schmidt had done.So far during the 2012 election fallout, Romney advisers are blaming strategy and messaging, not directly their own candidates.

The media and the Obama campaign, however, did go after Paul Ryan with spurious attacks. Prior to the campaign and during the campaign, they tried to portray his budgetary roadmap as one that would throw grandma over the cliff. The Obama campaign tried to conflate Todd Akin’s comments on rape with Paul Ryan’s stance on abortion. The media and Democrats both turned a visit by Ryan to a soup kitchen into a ridiculous mini-scandal. However, this was nothing compared to the barrage that Governor Palin received four years ago from within her campaign, the Democrats, and the media. Like Ryan, Palin also had false accusations launched at her regarding who rape–specifically who paid for rape test kits when she was mayor. However, with Governor Palin claims seemed more pointed and numerous. Ridiculous claims were made that she wasn’t the mother of Trig, her youngest son. False claims were also made regarding Palin’s associations with the Alaska Independence Party (AIP), which has succession as part of its platform. This supposed AIP-Palin connection was also falsely cast onto to Governor Palin by an employee of a Democratic PR firms. Claims were made that she cut funding for special education when she actually increased spending for special education substantially.She even was falsely reported to have banned books like Harry Potter when she was mayor--before the books were even written.

For Governor Palin, it went beyond false claims surrounding policy and into false charges regarding her character– charges that she abused her power by pressuring a commissioner to fire a state trooper who once was Palin’s brother-in-law. State senator, Kim Elton launched a legislative inquiry into the matter, deeming it an “October surprise”(i.e. he intended it be political). During the inquiry process, the Obama camp even made contact with the troopers’ union of Governor Palin’s former brother-in-law.Ultimately, the politically motivated legislative inquiry found her as abusing power, while the personnel board, who were all appointed by Governor Murkowski, no friend of Governor Palin, exonerated her. Following President Obama’s election, Kim Elton was given a cushy job in President Obama’s Department of Interior. Elton had also allowed former chief of staff to then Senator Obama and once interim chief of staff to President Obama, Pete Rouse, to use Elton’s Alaskan address so that  Rouse could vote in Alaska even after he hadn’t lived there for more than twenty years. Democrats sought to destroy her character, not solely mislead on her policy.

During the campaign, Governor Palin was criticized for being held back from the press–a poor campaign move by operatives like Schmidt and Wallace. Prior to her becoming the VP pick, emails obtained by the Anchorage Daily News noted that she was to be a McCain surrogate across several networks, yet the campaign held her back when she was picked. When she did talk to media embeds, she was criticized for “going rogue”. Meanwhile, Paul Ryan only spoke to the traveling press corps four times during the campaign and never gave formal press availability. Ryan’s limited press interaction never became a major story, however, only the subject of a singular tweet from a member of the traveling press corps.

Not only was Governor Palin more harshly covered by the media, her family was as well. Todd Palin’s voter registration became a huge news story when he inadvertently checked the box for the Alaska Independence Party (AIP) when he simply intended to note he was an independent (he later corrected this). However, Paul Ryan’s wife was not placed under the same intense scrutiny–despite the fact that she had been a congressional staffer and a corporate lobbyist in the past.  During their respective campaigns,  Governor Palin’s children was the mother of a four school aged (or younger) children and a son in the military while Congressman Ryan’s children were all under the age of 10. The young age of his three children and a busy campaign schedule were never a reason for faux concern from the media, as it was for Governor Palin.  Not to mention how Bristol Palin was put under the spotlight by the media and the Left during her concurrent pregnancy.

Despite claims made by McCain campaign staffers even prior to the campaign’s end, Governor Palin was not reason for the McCain-Palin ticket’s defeat. In fact, she helped the ticket. Among those who noted Palin’s presence on the GOP ticket affected their vote, 56% voted for McCain-Palin compared to 43% for Obama-Biden. John McCain and Sarah Palin received 59,934, 814 votes while  Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan received 59, 142,004 votes–a more than three quarters of a million vote difference in favor of McCain-Palin. This was despite the fact that the Romney campaign made more contacts with voters on a grassroots level than the McCain campaign. These vote differences are in no way an indictment of Paul Ryan’s candidacy, nor does an indictment lie in the context of solely a presidential campaign. The indictment lies with the GOP Establishment, Democrats, and the media who all seemed to have the same goal of destroying Governor Palin–a goal they haven’t achieved despite continued efforts. Revisiting the 2008 campaign is not an attempt to rehash the past, but to put it in greater perspective. This month’s election now provides an even bolder contrast to further reveal how much the media, the Democrats and even her own party wished to smear and discredited Governor Palin–and how much they continue to do so.

During this election cycle, GOP Establishmentarian, Karl Rove disingenuously represented Palin’s effect on the ticket by saying McCain was leading prior to picking her as VP and he poo-pooed the effect of her endorsement as “not worth snot”. In the end, Rove’s endorsement successes were non-existent while Governor Palin had great success. The Democrats still reference Palin, in attempts to diminish her, but their reference to her only shows her influence and their fear. John Kerry referenced Governor Palin  in his speech at the Democratic convention when discussing Mitt Romney’s policy on Russia. Obama campaign manager, Stephanie Cutter, referenced Palin in response to Rudy Guliani questioning Joe Biden’s mental capacity. This past week, the head of Obama’s SuperPAC and former deputy White House press secretary, Bill Burton took a shot at Palin in response to John McCain’s criticism of Susan Rice’s comments on the attack on the American consulate in Libya.She still remains a target for and a threat to both parties.

A willingness to serve in the capacity of vice presidential nominee means that your record, your family, and your character will be put under a magnifying glass–as it should. With Governor Palin, however, the GOP establishment, Democrats, and the media used (and continue to use) the magnifying glass the same way a mean kid uses it to direct sun’s rays to an ant hill–to destroy. A magnifying glass can be revealing for objects on either side of it though, and thankfully, Governor Palin has used the magnifying glass to further reveal the corrupt nature of the very people who seek to destroy her.

Sarah Palin Talks with Brian Kilmeade About the Biden-Ryan Debacle and the Future

Governor Sarah Palin signs legislation

By Gary P Jackson

A good and frank discussion between Sarah Palin and Brian Kilmeade about Thursday night’s debate between Paul Ryan and Joe Biden.

Sarah doing a better job of making Ryan’s points than he was able to do himself. Brian asks her how things would have been different had she and McCain won the election, and how things have changed since becoming a world wide political force.

Brian asks her about the possibility of her being named Energy Secretary by President Romney, and she talks at length about energy independence and how energy is where much of her expertise lies. Before being elected Governor, Sarah was Chairman of the Alaska Oil and Gas Conservation Commission, the board that regulates oil and gas production and serves as the state’s ethics watchdog over the industry.

As Governor Sarah was the Chairman of the Nation’s Interstate Oil and Gas Compact Commission, and her fellow Governor chose her to lead the National Governors Association’s Natural Resources Committee.

She would be the right choice for Energy Secretary, that’s for certain.

They also talk about Todd and Bristol as well.

Great interview:
