I hate Bipartisanship! Part 2 (new video). I have to be brutally honest. I have been a bit bored lately and used the time to translate some clips I found while surfing through channels on Youtube. This one is on pro-amnesty journalist Jorge Ramos’s show, ‘Al Punto’ where Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart appears with community organizer Luis V. Gutierrez to give an update on the push for amnesty. Yes, it is from last year, but if you see this like I do, you won’t be jaded. I promise. It’s always jaw-dropping to feel like a fly on a wall during a sneaky conversation, especially when the conversation reveals how a deal is being cut in DC by representatives. (Where are our hard-hitting news anchors on this issue? And why isn’t there more pressure for them to answer to us, not Ramos?) Diaz-Balart represents many Venezuelans in his district, but amnesty is never a win for Republicans. He is Cuban-American and supposedly anti-communist, just like my two other representatives, so there is no excuse for this. It is shady!
With the help of one or two Congressmen at a time, communist agitator Gutierrez gets what he wants. Seeing him work the host and his colleague is entertaining (at least to me it is), but the reality is that we are, unfortunately, witnessing the GOPe getting very comfortable being out of the shadows on this issue. John Boehner has always been pro-amnesty as Diaz-Balart attests to, but has held it back because of internal issues in our party. Despite our pressure, we lost the latest fight earlier this year on the same day Republicans greeted Netanyahu and won some praise. They allowed the funding of a DHS bill without provisions for stopping DACA or Obama’s Executive Action for two years.
We cannot get tired of calling out Republicans on this. We have to be as pernicious and consistent as our foe, Rep. Luis Gutierrez, shows. Again, it’s been a few slow days news-wise even with the presidential announcements.. kind of a lull, but I hope you enjoy this behind-the- scenes (sort of..) peek proving Boehner’s duplicity we have complained about all along, the embarrassing way some Republicans from the party that Bush has built have fought for this, and the way the extortionists are working them and hurting our country. Please remember that Jeb is scheduled to keynote with Gutierrez at a pro-amnesty Hispanic convention two weeks from today. I just can’t wait. [Yes, I can!]

I Hate Bipartisanship!

QUE VIVA LUIS GUTIERREZ! (Not, of course!)
“I am for a completely free and democratic society in Cuba!”
Well, if you missed April Fool’s day this would have sounded like a joke, but he said it. He of course he lied. So this is what we get for Bipartisanship? I know just a few days ago Luis Gutierrez got shouted off stage by patriots but our GOP keeps sends him shout outs instead. Heck, Jeb Bush is going to keynote with Gutierrez later this month and the GOP’s losing strategy is OUT of the SHADOWS. It’s not the first local appearance of Ileana with Luis in Spanish (I don’t watch television all the time), but DACA proponent Ros-Lehtinen is doing dirty work we don’t want her to so it’s time to amp up the effort to expose her. Diaz-Balart has made several appearances with Gutierrez as well as Ryan in 2013.
Bless Luis’s heart (the <sarc> way) for speaking out against human rights violations in Cuba. It’s just what the country needed. One more person to hijack the cause to further the problem. It’s enough to make you vomit profusely, bleed through tears or all the pores in your body. While pointing out Obama’s omissions in the SOTU speech (too mild of course) one is entertained by Luis’s expressions and effort to contain himself. She stands by dutifully and goes from doting, to a bit dazed, to a little frisky even, but very lucid. And then. The Group Hug. Or should I scramble the word to just say GUH or UGH on that hug!
Ileana is a great spirit, smart and with boundless energy, but she is Jeb Bush’s water carrier, make no mistake. She has not lost her mind. This is loyalty over decades (at our expense though). Rubio will be here on the 13th but she will not support his 2016 run. Politicians do things with disregard to the world around them. That is Ileana. She’s happy. Loyal. Nothing will come between her and Jeb. Not Cuba. Not communism. Not this country. Not corruption. It sucks.
Remember when Rubio said one thing in English another in Spanish and it was caught? I don’t think this is the case. She has been consistent on this issue, but she does use the title of freedom for Cuban in Spanish on her channel. Maybe that is why I hate bipartisanship, nothing gets done, or one just ends up settling for just words. Symbolism is 0kay sometimes, and Luis’s comment did make a headline in this story, but all Ros got in exchange for amnesty was a bone thrown at her (and Cubans). She has made a livelihood of this. Here’s the title:
En Telemundo, Ros-Lehtinen Dice Que La Dictadura Castrista Sigue Sus Tácticas De Represión En Cuba (In Telemundo, Ros-Lehtinen Says The Castro Dictatorship Continues its Tactics of Repression)
