Amnesty: JD Hayworth speaks the unvarnished truth

The left-of-center Huffington Post was on hand at CPAC, the Conservative Political Action Conference this past week. Spotting J.D. Hayworth, the online publication’s reporter zoomed in for a chat with Arizona’s 6-term former Congressman. The HuffPo’s report is headlined J.D. Hayworth Criticizes Marco Rubio For Immigration Efforts. We urge you to read it.

Hayworth, a conservative who challenged amnesty proponent John McCain in 2010, is described as not impressed by Florida Sen. Marco Rubio’s support for “comprehensive immigration reform.” As part of the notorious “Gang of 8,” Rubio has jumped front and center on another of Maverick McCain’s “bi-partisan” attempts to roll out the red carpet to those who disregard our laws and national sovereignty. It’s an effort that has the strong support of Barack Obama and Homeland Insecurity chieftain, Janet Napolitano. McCain has inexplicably praised the efforts of his 2008 presidential rival in pursuing the Democrat strategy of granting amnesty to increase their numbers in coming elections.

Conservatives are unlikely to find common ground with those two radical liberals on many issues, but McCain‘s merry men are apparently unconcerned. Besides Rubio, grand political aspirations in tow, the other Republicans following McCain down this dicey path are longtime amnesty supporters Jeff Flake and  Lindsey Graham. The small cadre has partnered with Democrat Sens. Dick Durbin (Illinois), Robert Melendez (NJ), Chuck Schumer (NY), and Michael Bennet (Colo).

“I don’t believe this administration has any intent to enforce the law and I will say, sadly, that I think there are some who aspire to leadership in our party and leadership in the executive branch who, likewise, have no intention,” Hayworth stated.  Asked if he meant Rubio, Hayworth didn’t give a “yes,” but came close, according to the report .

“Well, I would just simply refer you, I know they may be competition, but go back and watch the BuzzFeed answer over beer,” he said,  referring to Rubio’s Feb. 5 interview with the outlet. Hayworth repeated his invitation: “Go back and watch what the intent was over beers at BuzzFeed. Enforcement was not his leading component, was it? Go back and check.”

And Marco Rubio? Despite making amnesty a focal point issue, Rubio apparently didn’t think it was a good thing to mention at CPAC. Huffington Post reports he didn’t discuss it once in his speech to the conservative gathering.

This excellent Blaze report also features photos and a video showing the confrontational town hall meetings where John McCain was pounded with questions from angry Arizona citizens, wondering why he puts illegals above them. We’ve never gotten a straight answer from the supposed “straight talker.”

    How much better off Arizonans would have been if JD Hayworth had won that 2010 senate race. There was that slight factor of nearly $30 million dollars by which he was outspent by Juan McAmnesty.

    Another good reason for term limits, eh? The power structure becomes interdependent and the lobbyists and power playing groups raise funds for the incumbents. Look at the brutal ads Club for Growth ran and the lies they told as they trounced Wil Cardon on Jeff the Flake’s behalf.

    The article states: “And Marco Rubio? Despite making amnesty a focal point issue, Rubio apparently didn’t think it was a good thing to mention at CPAC.”

    That’s alright because Ann Coulter brought up Rubio and amnesty at CPAC!

    “Coulter blasts Rubio, ‘endless Bushes’ on immigration”

    “By KEVIN ROBILLARD, 3/16/13”

    “Conservative commentator Ann Coulter, in a CPAC appearance on Saturday that resembled a stand-up comedy routine more than a speech, attacked Sen. Marco Rubio for supporting “amnesty” for illegal immigrants.”

    “If amnesty goes through, America becomes California and no Republican will ever win another national election,” Coulter said, adding: “I can see why Democrats would want amnesty, but why on earth are Marco Rubio and these endless Bushes supporting it? Even Shemp and Zippo Bush are supporting amnesty for illegals.”

    “Coulter’s attack drew cheers from the CPAC crowd.”

  3. Angie says:

    What is it about ‘ILLEGAL” that the gang of 8 does not understand?
    It’s beyond comprehension that those thugs don’t consider that taking in 11 Million (?) illegals into our home is criminal? We have a house that barely supports it’s inhabitants. It’s full already!!!

    Can either Schumer, Rubio, Graham, Menendez or the other four take a million of the illegals to their own home and adopt them?
    We the rest of the USA population cannot support them or their large families! Our homes are full already. Why are these 8 gang
    of idiots trying to dump them on us? Our house is full, we cannot feed any more guests, much less the permanent, uninvited kind!

  4. eubykdisop says:

    Let us not fail to note that we have another sellout to add to our list of “Republican” traitors, GOP Sen. Rob Portman:

    “GOP Sen. Portman of Ohio now supports gay marriage”

    “15 Mar 2013”

    “Republican U.S. Sen. Rob Portman is now supporting gay marriage and says his reversal on the issue began when he learned one of his sons is gay.”

    “Portman said he would like Congress to repeal the provision of the DOMA that bans federal recognition of gay marriage, though he still supports the part of the law that says states should not be forced to recognize such marriages.”

    We now know that this man is incapable of adhering to principles.

    • eubykdisop says:

      “Be glad Portman’s son isn’t serial killer”

      “by Joseph Farah”

      “I’ve heard some wacky excuses by politicians for changing their minds on some of the most important moral issues facing American, but Ohio Sen. Rob Portman’s rationale for flip-flopping on same-sex marriage takes the proverbial wedding cake.”

      “In case you haven’t heard, his son is a homosexual.”

      “I guess we should all be grateful Rob Portman’s son didn’t choose to become a polygamist or a serial killer.”

      “I have no doubt Rob Portman is sincere in his newfound opinion.”

      “However, that’s all it is – an opinion.”

      “And opinions don’t determine what is right and what is wrong. Opinions don’t determine what is sinful and what is not sinful. Opinions don’t determine what is truth and what is a lie.”

      “Few are willing to say it anymore, but I will: Morality is determined by God, not men.”

  5. Tomfoolery says:

    Here are Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer who were both uninvited to CPAC this year. But as Walid Shoebat writes, Breitbart put on an event at CPAC billed as ‘The Uninvited Panel” that was very well attended. The reason for the censor of Spencer and Geller is the strong influence of both Grover Norquist and his close associate Suhail Khan, who has ties to the Muslim brotherhood. Norquist, said to be a Muslim convert, is not simply the anti-tax guy anymore. He is now the pro-Muslim extremist guy.

    • euybkdisop says:

      Hi, Tomfoolery! :-)

      I just got around to following the link posted in your comment. Conservatives here should watch the video of Robert Spencer on the linked page. It is very informative and very potent. I’m going to take the liberty of posting the link to that video, hoping that the video will be visible here at SRAZ. Thanks for pointing this out!

  6. Hometown Guy says:

    JD was our congressman. He was accessible and honest. My wife and I were thrilled to have him representing us in Washington. We had never before contributed to a political campaign and although our donations were not maximums, it was our pleasure to help JD. He always spoke the truth about the eventual impact of the flood of illegals on the USA. Harry Mitchell is a pathetic liberal fool who was clearly over his head in Congress. Glad to have Schweikert replace ol’ Harry, but will always miss JD.

  7. Delilah says:

    I am very glad to hear that Hometown Guy. I was told by a woman that JD was not liked very much. but it turned out she was a die hard Deakin Supporter. I got to know JD during his run for Senate and really like him, to this day every time McStain opens his mouth I say, “If only”.

    • Hometown Guy says:

      Deakin’s naive tea party supporters were duped by that little McCain helper. Why do you think McCain wanted Jimmie Lee Deakin in the debate? Deakin is a moron and his wife is a crude loudmouth. Every vote he siphoned off the total was an aid to McCain. Remember that at the onset of the campaign there was less than 5% difference between JD and McCain. It was very concerning to the old goat. Deakin’s home was in foreclosure but was mysteriously “saved” after the election. I’ve always hoped that bit of information would come out, although McCain would be several steps away, no fingerprints….

      As to JD. He has a magnificent mind and memory. If he meets you once, he recalls your name and can speak about the last topic you discussed with him, bringing you up to date on it. His friends are true because he is worthy of their admiration and respect. When he was on KFYI, it was akin to taking a class in history and current events combined. He’s very smart and extremely decent. Have you ever heard anyone say that about Señor Juan McNasty?

    “Republican National Committee Supports Amnesty”

    “Monday, March 18, 2013”

    “Embracing the false notion perpetuated by the open-borders lobby that the Party will continue to lose elections until it pushes amnesty, the Republican National Committee (RNC) today told its members they must support “comprehensive immigration reform.”

    “The call to support an amnesty agenda appeared in a report released this morning entitled the “Growth and Opportunity Project”. Commissioned by RNC Chairman Reince Priebus…”

    So what they are telling me is that they no longer want me to be a registered Republican. No problem. I’ll register independent. To hell with Priebus and the RNC!

    • Hometown Guy says:

      What a disgrace! We will never benefit from giving our country away to lawlessness. We will only see more lawlessness. I agree with you, euby. I’m going to have to think long and hard about remaining a registered Republican. I’ve also been an active one all of my adult life, elected as a PC, State Committeeman and State Delegate. I think those days might just be coming to an end. I love my country and family far more than I love the Republican Party. You see, I’m a conservative, who values our constitution above the party.

      • eubykdisop says:

        I hear ‘ya, Hometown Guy. I’m a Republican because the Republican party has been the more Conservative of the two major parties. But if the fix is in at the national level, and the Republican party is going to be as Liberal as the Democrats, I can at least send a message by changing my affiliation to independent.

  9. Kingman GOP PC says:

    Giving the marvelous gift of American citizenship to lawbreakers who have no respect for us or our heritage, is patently absurd. Aside from the fact that catering to illegals only encourages more (look no further than the well meaning foolishness of Reagan’s actions re: Simpson-Mazolli) it is also an endless supply line of ever more hands-out members of the Democrat Party. What are these so-called Republicans thinking? Small wonder they have a “bi-partisan” effort. The Dems benefit. We lose. Why wouldn’t they hop onboard with demented McCain?

  10. William Rusk says:

    I hope to see Arizona without McCain, as its Senator ,during my lifetime. Probably won’t happen, and I’m only 30.

    • Night Owl says:

      Welcome, William. I haven’t seen you here previously.
      Your wish is heartening. Your pessimism is shared by many Arizonans. But keep your hopes up along with your sense of humor. Youthful vigor and wisdom are sure to win out over static egocentric-driven incompetence. If you are a conservative, hone your political skills. Wouldn’t it be sweet to bust McCain’s chops and win that senate seat? Work on some campaigns. Learn the ropes. Meet the players. Most of all, have a Constitutionally based conservative core that is driven by moral principals. You will always have a place from which to draw strength and hold firm to your values. Best of luck.

  11. no one says:

    JD should now be sitting in the Senate seat for AZ but for old farts who know nothing but what they read in the AZ Repugnant.

    I did follow the link to the article, and looked at the photos at the bottom of the page….it is easy to tell who ‘they’ (GOP power brokers) are the most scared of — only about 6 photos of Rand Paul out of 247…..very interesting….

    • eubykdisop says:

      Hey, I’m an old fart and I supported JD against McCain. Polls show that most of this squishy Liberal stuff is coming from young people.

  12. Westnash says:

    Everyone’s affiliation should be independent to help keep both sides honest. The Republicans are almost as bad as the Democrats.

    • eubykdisop says:

      Tell us, Wetnash, what is bad about Democrats. Is it gun control?

      “Westnash says:
      January 8, 2013 at 8:00 am
      There will be some changes in gun regulations at some point in 2013 and the Republicans who only tow the NRA line of “no” will lose. Wouldn’t you rather outsmart your opponent than trying unsuccessfully in throwing up a wall, that is crumbling down around you.”

      “Westnash says:
      December 23, 2012 at 12:39 pm
      LaPierre’s interview on Meet the Press today just shows a lack of political awareness on his part. Every hunting shotgun has a limit on shells…there is no place for large clips and no place for Gun Shows to sell on terms different than a retail gun shop.”

      Is it the cuts that Obama wants to make in the military budget?

      “Westnash says:
      February 14, 2013 at 10:17 am
      I would propose an immediate 10% cut in all military expenditures including salaries. All of us can get by on 9 out of 10…..the govt. can as well…it is nothing but would make a huge dent in the problem.”

      Is it their refusal to secure our borders?

      “Westnash says:
      February 18, 2013 at 3:35 pm
      What I worry that the Secure Our Borders bunch really wants is to spend Billions more in hiring and fences which do nothing but increase the size of Govt.”

      Is it their attacks on Sheriff Joe Arpaio?

      “Westnash says:
      March 1, 2013 at 9:06 am
      Interesting that when you have someone like Joe who continues to hang on…you have a real vacuum behind them. Their ego just wont let them develop a successor. Joe should retire soon and develop a strong successor…but I am afraid hubris has set in long ago.”

      Is it their promotion of the Reconquista agenda?

      “Westnash says:
      March 12, 2013 at 8:36 am
      I would be in favor of Arizona requiring Spanish (for legal students of course).”

  13. Chuck says:

    About the porous border and his efforts to secure amnesty, John McLiar has opined “I think it’s been a little bit over-hyped.”
    What a lousy lying piece of sludge.
