Immigration: Addressing the harsh realities

Bi-partisan acknowledgment that the nation’s legal immigration system is also in need of repair

Earlier this week, as the nation was still reeling, trying to absorb the grisly aftermath of the Boston marathon bombings, Ann Coulter wrote a cogent column titled: The  problem isn’t just illegal immigration, it’s legal immigration, too. Coulter’s fact-filled commentary is our “Weekend reading guaranteed to make you smarter” recommendation.

Bob Beckel, ubitquitous liberal commentator and co-host of ‘The Five,’ appeared to catch his co-hosts off guard as he echoed similar thoughts. Beckel advocated for the temporary ending of student visas for foreign Muslim students as a means of combating homegrown terror.

    This morning on Fox News Sunday the chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee Rep. Michael McCaul said he thinks the Boston bombers had help, considering level of sophistication and the type of device (a shrapnel-packed, pressure-cooker bomb). Such bombs have been a frequent weapon of militants in Afghanistan, India and Pakistan. Al Qaeda’s branch in Yemen even published an online manual on how to make one.

    McCaul said he thinks the suspects’ mother played “a very strong role” in her Muslim sons’ radicalization process and that if she were to return to the United States from Russia, she’d be held for questioning. The American Muslim convert wife of the oldest brother deserves serious scrutiny.

    These are the people who accept American generosity, receive education and live off public benefits, while plotting to kill our innocent citizens.

    I applaud Bob Beckel for stating the truth.

    I suspect most Americans are not suicidal. Yes, there are brain dead liberals who do everything on emotion. Unfortunately too many of our so-called leaders operate on emotion rather than facts. Andrew Cuomo would be a good example. Politicians are all about themselves and to hell with the country. They are more loyal to their party and getting re-elected than they are to family, God and country. They have opened us up to incalculable risks to life, limb and liberty. As the great Margaret Thatcher said: “the world has never ceased to be dangerous, but the west has ceased to be vigilant”. 90% of incumbents getting re-elected reflects badly on voters, and ensures we will stay on the path to self destruction. I confronted idiots with petitions to recall sheriff Joe. He won the election, stupid! He is a rare public official willing to uphold the law and protect and defend the citizens.

    No one asked why this family was allowed to come to the USA and these 2 become citizens. This: is a precious right that is being given away by the govt far too freely.

      But Westnash, you are a HUGE supporter of the Obama/Napolitano immigration agenda, LOL!

      First, you talk disparagingly about “the Secure Our Borders bunch”. Then, you don’t want to spend any money 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.”

      Next, you take a dump on Sheriff Arpaio, who actually enforces immigration laws!

      “Westnash says:

      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.”

      Then, in complete harmony with the Reconquistas, you would REQUIRE us to spend Arizona taxpayer dollars teaching each and every student in Arizona to… speak SPANISH!

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

      Like all Liberal DEMOCRATS, you support the Obama/Napolitano illegal alien immigration agenda!

      Now you and Janet have a real nice day, Westy! :-)

      • westnash says:

        Poor Euby McCarthy…it just loves to distort…….won’t work any more….people see through you now.

      • eubykdisop says:

        ROFL! Distort? My goodness no, Westnash. Your support for the Marxist in Chief is entirely consistent across the board!

        “Westnash says:
        January 11, 2013 at 3:41 am
        Obviously, Euby, it is easy for you to blame Marxism, but impossible to offer a solution for the Arizona Republicans.”

        I’m so sorry that I “blamed” your sacred and beloved Marxism, Westnash! I didn’t mean to cast aspersions upon your hero, Marxist in Chief B. Hussein Obama!

        Now you, Obama and Karl Marx have a nice day, Westy! ;-)

    “Immigration Discussion Remiss to Ignore Cartel Violence”

    “by Brandon Darby, 27 Apr 2013”

    “Another significant concern in relation to illegal immigration began to become visible around 2006: Mexican drug cartels. Since that time, thousands have been killed as cartels battle each other, along with any public official or private citizen who attempted to interfere with their operation or territorial control.”

    “Some of the cartels, most notably the Los Zetas, have crossed the line from being a criminal enterprise into being an armed insurgency, having more power and control in many regions than the Mexican government.”

    “In one instance, the Los Zetas forcibly entered the town of Ciudad Mier and caused thousands to flee for their lives. Many of the town’s 8,000 civilians were driven away from their homes and communities. Many of them found their way across the border and into Texas. They could arguably be catalogued as war refugees or asylees.”

    http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Peace/2013/04/27/Immigration-Discussion-Remiss-to-Ignore-Cartel-Violence

    Who allowed military grade weapons to walk into Mexico, and into the hands of the cartels, resulting in the violent murders of hundreds of Mexican innocents? The Obama administration facilitated the cartel violence, causing aliens to cross the border into the U. S. seeking asylum to save their lives.

    So Obama didn’t promote “Fast and Furious” JUST to have a rationale to promote gun control legislation. Providing military grade weapons to the cartels helped them to herd illegals across the border into the U. S., just as Obama wanted!

  5. Westnash says:

    Here is the answer to Flake, McCain, and all the immigration enablers in high tech. There is no shortage. It is just a scam to let in more Indians. The only indians we need are the ones already in America:

    • eubykdisop says:

      LOL! You’re not fooling anyone, Westnash, Your record of supporting Obama’s immigration policies is quite clear!

      You would REQUIRE that every student in the state of Arizona learn to… speak SPANISH!

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

      You have nothing but criticism for Sheriff Arpaio:

      Pretty hard to do your job as a Liberal Obama internet troll when you are exposed for what you are by your own verbatim statements, LOL!

      Now you, B. Hussein Obama and Janet Napolitano have a nice day, Westy! :-)

      • Westnash says:

        SRAZ, If you and the readers look at the comment to my post by this delusional megalomaniac can you really stand back and not say anything? I stand by everything I ever post but obviously the game that little Euby plays is trying to define my posts based on his warped criteria. Do you really want this to escalate again into a severe name calling session instead of comments on your important issues in the thread?

      • eubykdisop says:

        If SRAZ and the readers look at what you have written, Westnash, it is clear that you are an Obama Liberal posing as a Conservative for the purpose of spreading Liberal propaganda in a Conservative blog.

        Let’s look at another example of your comments, shall we?

        “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.”

        “…trying unsuccessfully in throwing up a wall, that is crumbling down around you.” Really, Westnash? Are Conservatives trying “unsuccessfully” in throwing up a wall that is “crumbling down” around us?” Is that what is actually happening or is that your Liberal Marxist propaganda telling Conservatives, like “Tokyo Rose”, that “resistance is useless” and that we might as well throw in the towel now?

        No, Westnash, gun regulations are NOT “inevitable” in 2013. Those who only say “No!’ to Obama’s gun control agenda will not lose. Nothing is “crumbling down” around Conservatives. We shall not give up the fight to preserve our 2nd Amendment rights as you, in classic Communist propaganda style, urge us to do.

        Now you have yourself a nice Marxist day, Westy! :-)

  6. Westnash says:

    Poor Euby, his analysis is inaccurate about what I am or think,,,not that it is his to vet. This same type of tunnel vision is what will turn Arizona into a reliable Seeing Blue state, if voices like his are considered mainstream. Poor Euby….almost always Wrong!

    • eubykdisop says:

      Really, Westnash? It’s fascinating how you focus on me personally without ever addressing the content of your Marxist posts, LOL! That’s called “distraction”, “avoidance” or “changing the subject” A good old Communist tactic!

      So let us examine yet another of your comments, shall we?

      Obama has already cut military spending to dangerously low levels but even Obama refused to reduce the pay of our men and women in uniform. You go beyond even the Marxist in Chief in wanting to reduce the pay of military personnel by 10% across the board!

      “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.”

      Weakening The United States armed forces goes hand in hand with your support for Obama’s gun control agenda. You would see us both nationally and personally with no defense at all. Karl Marx would have been proud of you, Westnash! Perhaps you will be awarded the Order of Lenin!

      Now you and Vladimir Lenin have a nice day, Westy! :-)

  7. eubykdisop says:

    Westnash wrote about me: “This same type of tunnel vision is what will turn Arizona into a reliable Seeing Blue state, if voices like his are considered mainstream.” The old attempt to split Conservatives once again, LOL!

    Let’s take a look at what Arizona would be if your “voice” is considered mainstream, Westnash!

    First, we would be critical of Conservatives like the late Judge Robert Bork:

    “Westnash says:
    December 21, 2012 at 4:53 am
    RIP. Those that followed him in confirmation hearings saw that it was better to say nothing and get confirmed instead of speaking from their heart and running into a buzz saw. Each of the three females on the court are more liberal than Bork was conservative, but they got there and Robert got Borked.”

    And your advice to Conservatives is that it is better to say nothing! Following your Marxist counsel, Conservatives would have no voice at all! Your hero, Marxist in Chief B. Hussein Obama, would pin a medal on you if you could get Conservatives to be silent, Westnash!

  8. Westnash says:

    Euby, how are you qualified to judge: “Obama has already cut military spending to dangerously low levels but even Obama refused to reduce the pay of our men and women in uniform. You go beyond even the Marxist in Chief in wanting to reduce the pay of military personnel by 10% across the board!”

    You are for big government and I am for small government. A 10% reduction in military spending is nothing a good manager cant handle…but one a big government spender squeals about.

    Euby loves more government…more of the time!

      How am I qualified to judge? Here’s how I’m qualified to judge, Westnash!

      “Rep. Rooney: Obama’s Military Cuts ‘Dangerous'”

      “By Martin Gould and Kathleen Walter, Jan 2012”

      “Obama announced some $480 billion cuts in military spending over four years on Thursday. It was a tacit acknowledgement that the United States will no longer have the means to fight wars on two fronts simultaneously.”

      “United States national security is at risk from the hundreds of billions of defense cuts that President Barack Obama announced on Thursday, Republican House Armed Services Committee member Tom Rooney says.”

      “We are getting into very dangerous waters,” Rooney, a former military prosecutor, told Newsmax.TV in an exclusive interview.

      “The cuts could even empower potential enemies such as Iran and even China into thinking that the U.S. is now terribly weakened, he added.”

      “We always used to have the saying ‘Speak Softly but Carry a Big Stick’ and we’ve gone from that to – the president doesn’t like to hear this word, but – appeasement,” said the Florida congressman.”

      http://www.newsmax.com/InsideCover/rooney-obama-military-cuts/2012/01/05/id/423212

      You are a Marxist who, under the guise of supporting “small government”, wants to cut the heart out of the defense capability of The United States!

      “Panetta: Obama’s Cuts Create ‘Risks’ in Military’s ‘Capability to Respond’”

      “By Edwin Mora, January 27, 2012”

      “Defense Secretary Leon Panetta said Thursday that the cuts in defense proposed by President Barack Obama will create “risks” in America’s “capability to respond” to threats.”

      “Army Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, echoed Panetta’s assessment, while pointing out that when the administration’s cuts in defense are implemented there will be risk that the U.S. military will not be able to do as much as quickly as it can do now.”

      http://cnsnews.com/news/article/panetta-obamas-cuts-create-risks-military-s-capability-respond

      It isn’t “smaller government” that you want, Westnash. As a Marxist, it’s a weakened and less able United States military that you want!

      “White House prepping for budget cuts, to shield military pay”

      “By Laura MacInnis and Richard Cowan, Jul 31, 2012”

      “The White House said on Tuesday it was starting to get ready for potentially painful year-end spending cuts, and was committed to shielding U.S. military pay from any government budget crunch.”

      “The administration’s decision to exempt military personnel accounts from the automatic cuts was widely expected, and had been recommended by Defense Secretary Leon Panetta and other top officials, despite its potential squeeze on other parts of the Pentagon budget.”

      “This step was taken because the administration believes it is in the national interest to safeguard the resources necessary to safeguard the men and women serving to defend our nation and to maintain the force levels required for national security,” an administration official said.”

      http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/07/31/us-usa-obama-budget-idUSBRE86U1CS20120731

      It is EXACTLY as I have stated. While even Obama is unwilling to cut military pay, you would go BEYOND Obama and cut military pay by 10% across the board!

  9. eubykdisop says:

    No, Westnash, you are a Marxist and I am a Conservative!

    Above, we see how you criticized the late Conservative Judge Robert Bork and advised that Conservatives should be silent. Let’s see how you describe another Conservative, J. D. Hayworth!

    “Westnash says:
    December 27, 2012 at 9:16 am
    My experience is that when politicians become infected with hubris it usually catches them and JDH is a good example.”

    “Westnash says:
    December 21, 2012 at 8:24 am
    JD will never cut government (including defense waste) like it has to be cut.”

    “Westnash says:
    December 27, 2012 at 3:55 am
    Does it also mean that no factual points about J.D Hayworth that might not reflect well on his elevation to Mt. Rushmore can be mentioned?”

    “Westnash says:
    December 26, 2012 at 9:09 am
    Maybe Seeing Red only wants to hear that JD is the next coming instead of the facts?”

    So as you support the Obama/Giffords/Kelly gun control agenda and seek to cut military spending, including the pay for our men and women in uniform, you criticize Judge Bork and J. D. Hayworth!

    Surely there is a place reserved for you in the Marxist Internet Troll Hall of Fame!

    Now you and Karl Marx have a nice day, Westy! :-)
