The Talk Shows
February 17th, 2013
Guests to be interviewed today on major television talk shows:
FOX NEWS SUNDAY (Fox Network): Sens. Rand Paul, R-Ky., and Lindsey Graham, R-S.C.
MEET THE PRESS (NBC): White House chief of staff Denis McDonough; Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz.; Mark Kelly, husband of former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords.
FACE THE NATION (CBS): McDonough; former Gov. Haley Barbour, R-Miss.; Mayor Cory Booker of Newark, N.J.; Cardinal Donald Wuerl, the archbishop of Washington, D.C.
THIS WEEK (ABC): McDonough; Reps. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., and Joaquin Castro, D-Texas.
STATE OF THE UNION (CNN): Sens. Jack Reed, D-R.I., Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., and John Barrasso, R-Wyo.; Rep. Mike Rogers, R-Mich.
Rand will be adding amendments to the bill to not allow them to get welfare. He does not support giving them benefits, just a visa and eventually a green card
What are the odds Marco can take us back to 40% of the Hispanic vote and from there get back to 50%?
Linda Graham=McCain buttboy=RINO.
All Rep amnesty supporters on today—McCain, Graham, and Ryan.
We had a couple Mexicans run for office here and they did not get one more Mexican vote. Still lost 60-40 to the Dems. Don’t count your Rubio votes before they are hatched. Look how well they are supporting him when the press hammers him for drinking water the wrong way.
Pray for America
I had to turn the tv off when I heard that the meeting in Europe to which Panetta is going this week was supposed to be Hagel’s “coming out party.” Just disgusting how these political experts perceive our country’s so-called leaders and their interactions with the leaders of other countries.
Also, apparently the Pentagon will implode if there is no SecDef for a few weeks. Can anyone tell me how many people work in the Pentagon? Anyone? How many Assistant SecDefs there are? Please?
He does not support giving them benefits, just a visa and eventually a green card
How stupid does Paul believe we are? First, he is giving the lawbreakers the object of their crimes, to stay and work here. They have not only entered illegally, they have worked illegally, committed ID theft, evaded taxes, stolen SS numbers, etc.
Does Paul really believe we can create two classes of green card holders? The courts would never permit it and Congress would never approve it. Will the Paul green card holders be allowed to bring in their families like other green card holders? Or get SSNs or be entitled to welfare benefits like food stamps? Will they be covered under Obamacare? And to make matters worse, we have no idea as to how many illegal aliens are here?
We have lost that battle. Our country will become bilingual, but it will not collapse like Japan, or turn moslem like Europe. Think of the new immigrants as people who have been given green cards written in invisible ink, if they have been here for decades, without ‘consequences.’ It is up to our elected representatives to see that laws are upheld, and amnesty has been the unspoken ‘law’ for the past 25 years.
How about if we get 50% of the "Hispanic" vote, and deport all the Mexicans?
The wind is howling and its 46 degrees so Barky is not going to have a pleasant round .
Wow McCain growing something between his legs with DNC Dave!! Dave changes the topic from Benghazi realllly quick. He’s a master of deception. McCain of course falls for it since he is a pubbie and does not really know how to control or oppose the DBM.
Rand Paul on FOX - Even with sequestor, spending will go up. It’s a cut in the rate of growth in spending.
Wallace asks Paul about Graham comments on drones. Paul syas the CIA and DOD is not allowed to act on American soil. obams says he doesn’t “intend” to use drones to kill Americans. Paul says\that’s not good enough.
primarily wants answers about American soil killings.
Brennan has said obama’ authorization for (action in Afghanistan - I think that’s what he said) has no georgraphical limit. Hasn’t answered whether that means the US.
asked about Rove - party shouldn’t be deciding who the candidate is. Have competitive primaries to get the best candidate.
On obama’s plan in the SOTU and spending. obama has claimed he’s reduced the deficit, things won’t increase spending plenty ot times while our debt keeps going up.
On the immigration reform plan proposed by the Senate - Paul sayts he supports immigration “reform” in general; he’ll support it IF the Senate gets a report that shows the border IS secure...every year for five years and vote whether they accept those conclusions. WON’T do it based on obama’s promises.
Wallace asks about how serious Paul is in running in 2016. IOW, are you doing this “to make a point”? Paul ssys if he wins, it will be to win it. Won’t make a decision until 2014.
Zero. And if Rubio is running against Hillary he will get far less than 40%. Hispanics are natural Dem constituents with 50% out of wedlock birthrates, the highest school dropout rates of any group, and high dependency on welfare programs.
Husband gets same message. I get it on Kindle. Only on Freerepublic and Lucianne.
Both of these sites are conducting a fundraising type of thing, if that’s a clue.
BUT...when you click on the “TAKE ACTION NOW” button it does nothing at all. Being on Kindle, I don’t think it’s a virus. There’s something Comcast or Xfinity is finding on these sites but it’s an all botched up thing as Xfinity arranges for free internet for the poor and cell phones for everybody as was a condition of the sale of NBC to them.
We need to remember Rubio is a Cuban/American not a Mexicon. Cubans are here because they hate communists.
Besides one can never underestimate Charisma. Reagan had it Palin has it, Rubio has it. Its better that American Express.Don't leave home without it!
We have another huge problem. Lots of voters are now voting Dem/Santa instead of theology. If the dems can continue to use our resources to buy votes for their side we will be in jeopardy for some time.
Wallace plays Leviin’s clip talking about Rove - “He’s up there with that stupid whiteboard....bring on your white board, we’re ready”. LOL, GO Levin!
Rove gloms on to the Paul candidacy and Rubio. (wasn’t that AFTER the primaries?)
Brings up Todd Aiken - stupid. Wallace says there were plenty of bad “establishment” candidates. Rove brings up Indiana/Murdoch. Rove blames Murdoch’s statements and Lugar being out of touch and not stepping aside. (Lugar wasn’t just out of touch - he didn’t represent Indiana Republicans as well as he could)
Woodward -says - something - haltingly -—
Did Obama talk to anyone? And, if so, at what times?
ironically when polled many of those Hispanics who are here,have American citizenship and jobs are also in favor of strong borders.
11 million “law breakers” are not going to be deported. He supports them staying if they work and don’t leech off the state and but an annual report being voted on by the congress.
if you dont like he ideas what do you suggest ?
A hundred miles south of zero/Rush’s casa its 49 degrees with a 25-30 knot wind wind chill waaay down for us.Too cold to play golf. Zero will be swapping bathhouse stories with his buds today.
Do y’all really think NONE of those senators knew about that perv in NJ-Mendenez?
Guy is as corrupt as they come but so okay, they all have their pork barrell projects.
But he goes to Dominican Republic and has sex with 16 year old prostitutes?
Do NOT tell me this is a legal thing, it’s no matter. A 16 year old child? Does Mendenez think those precious young adolescents, no doubt forced into this life by those in charge of them, enjoy having sex with him?
My bigger question....and everyone, take a shot at an answer...
DOES ANYONE REALLY THINK NOT A SINGLE OTHER SENATOR, INCLUDING THE REPUBLICAN ONES, DIDN’T KNOW THIS ABOUT MENDENEZ?
They protect their own. They are of the Political Elite and they are entitled to sex with young girls.
And dear Lord, what the hell is Chris Matthews the nut job doing on Meet the Press?
Kim Stossel on FOX - why WOULDN’T Republicans play politics with the Hagel nomination?
Juan Williams says what they are doing in petty. It’s unprecedented. We need a Sof Defense. They don’t have the votes to block his nomination.
Wallace asks Woodward if he’s surprised that we don’t know what obama was doing and why Administration still refuses to give Congress the FBI interviews of those on the ground in Benghazi. Woodward says the nomination process isn’t the place to get these answeres. Wonders if dem’s wonder if Hagel is the best person to be SOD.
Ditto. We're not changing course by trying to get more votes out of the "free stuff" crowd. Unfortunately, the only way things will change is when life becomes painful for enough of the "free stuff" voters. I think that means a Weimar Republic-style societal collapse -- at least in urban areas -- when the EBT cards stop working, or they work, but a Big Mac costs $200.
Anybody else think this Gavin guy is light in the loafers?
Wallace plays clips of both Hoyer and Boehner on the Sequestrastion. Hoyer blames republicans; Boehner blames president.
Wallace asks Woodward who’s idea was it? Woodward says the Whitehouse. (Wow, I’m shccked he told the truth on this one!)......but then he goes on to say it’s a stupid policy.
Kim Stassel - Wallace asks about whether it will happen. She says very likely because obama won’t deal with entitlements. Dem’s only solution is tax hikes....Republicans aren’t interested. Says there is some latitude in how it’s implemented. Says obama/administartion is making it as painful as possible.
Juan - says it will hurt the economy.
If we have lost that battle, then this Republic is finished. We will slowly decline into a Third World country and the Constitution and the vision of our Founders will be historical footnotes. If you think that being colonized by the Third World is better than what is happening in Japan or Europe, then we profoundly disagree.
If we have Spanish as a second official language, then the country will be Balkanized linguistically and culturally. Demography is destiny.
Think of the new immigrants as people who have been given green cards written in invisible ink, if they have been here for decades, without consequences.
When you legalize their status, they add to our fiscal problems. We had a blanket amnesty in 1986. It was supposed to be the first and only one. The government estimated that 1 million would apply, but the true number turned out to be 2.7 million. The process was rife with fraud.
Now just 27 years later we are proposing to have a second amnesty with 11 million illegals--according to government estimates. The numbers could be much higher. And when you legalize the 11 million they will be able to bring in tens of millions of family members thru chain migration Robert Rector of the Heritage Foundation estimated that 66 million would be eligible when he analyzed the 2007 McCain-Kennedy amnesty, which is almost identical to what Rubio and the Gang of 8 are proposing.
It is up to our elected representatives to see that laws are upheld, and amnesty has been the unspoken law for the past 25 years.
They didn't do that with the 1986 amnesty. Why should we believe them now? Why not just try enforcement first and only to see if we can really do it? Why do we have to hold enforcement hostage to amnesty?
So this guy married to Gabby Giffords, what an awful man.
He’s been promised a political run for this stand of his, I just know it. Lord,he’s an astronaut, personable and married to a brain-injured congress woman....I could write the book!
So he sells us out and joins the cause to take away OUR guns....even though we didn’t do a thing to cause his pain.
What an awful, awful person.
I do see however only two candidates with charisma.
They both have instant recognition, ability to raise money, ability to think and speak attract many voters.
As much as I respect and like Plain.Yet I don't see her in the offing as a potential potus candidate, yet.
If there is someone else that I missed who has all these qualities please point him/her out to me.
Also I am trying not to destroy a potential candidate before he she even gets to that point.
Juan is mystified on why this is the President’s sequestor. (guess he didn’t realize it was the admin’s idea) blames Republicans for voting for it.
Woodward says dem’s are quietly asking obama if the cuts can be delayed for a year.
If "he" has spent much more than six weeks around The Beltway and/or the pimp media, that would be a sure bet.
(...as well as most likely being one of his least steps toward damnation.)
Power player of the week - senate historian.
Says senate has few rules, but thousands of precidents. That’s how they run things.
I think the big news with Mendezeezez was rumors he was having sex with under age pros in the DR and with “males.”
This alone would make him a Rockstar in New Jersey.There are no corruption laws in New Jersey. Look who is a Senator/ Governor.Criminality is not only supported but revered in NJ.Menedezezezez could run for Governor and probably win.
The proponents of amnesty are wont to create the false choice between a blanket amnesty and mass deportation of 12 to 20 million illegal aliens. In reality, we have other choices and alternatives that dont reward people who have broken our laws with the right to stay and work here and an eventual path to citizenship. The 12 to 20 million illegal aliens did not enter this country overnight and they will not leave overnight. Attrition through enforcement works. We have empirical data from Georgia, Oklahoma, Alabama, and Arizona proving that it does.
During the 2006 amnesty debate, the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) commissioned a Zogby poll offering respondents not the false choice between mass deportation or amnesty (a word CIS did not use in the survey), but rather a three-way choice between mass deportation, earned legalization, and attrition and attrition was preferred two-to-one over legalization.
If we legalize the lawbreakers, it will cost us more money in terms of what benefits they will receive versus what they contribute in taxes. 50% of the lawbreakers don't even have a high school degree. It will cost us $2.6 trillion alone just to cover their entitlement costs for SS and Medicare.
if you dont like he ideas what do you suggest ?
Advocate a pro-immigrant policy of low immigration.
Republicans need to provide the American people with their own comprehensive immigration reform plan, i.e., give people a reason to vote FOR something rather than just attack the other sides proposals. Such a plan should contain the following elements:
Formulate a merit based immigration system that brings in the skills and talents to keep us competitive in the global economy;
Reduce immigration levels based on need more closely approximating 300,000 a year;
Eliminate extended chain migration, i.e., family reunification, limiting it to the nuclear family,
Secure the border;
Enforce existing immigration laws to reduce the current illegal alien population and limit future illegal immigration, i.e., attrition thru enforcement. Enforcement would include: (1) ending the job magnet; (2) increasing coordination at the federal level by eliminating barriers to information sharing among agencies; (3) leveraging state and local enforcement resources; (4) fully implementing the US-VISIT Program to track and deport visa overstays; and (5) make mandatory and improve such programs as E-Verify and 287 [g] authority to assist employers and law enforcement in identifying illegal aliens;
Eliminate birthright citizenship and the visa lottery program;
Ensure that anyone who enters this nation illegally is not rewarded by being permitted to stay and work here; i.e., no amnesty;
Streamline the processing and adjudication of immigration cases;
Promote pro-immigrant measures that help newcomers assimilate and embrace the values and principles of our Founders and the Constitution.
Looks like fine pickins...a damn good place for the House GOPPERS to do massive real cuts.
Mexicans...doing the welfare fraud Americans won't do.
How do we get Hispanics to vote for us.My suggestion is to treat everyone the same. Stop trying to divide every American in the country into specific groups and they buy each group and treat everyone the same. Offer equal opportunity through capitalism for all.Why won’t this work.
Hey the day is young he may well do that.....
Kelly was a lifetime govt employee, now he’s hooked up with Baraqqi favorite Elon Musk.
Perfect training to slot into the Senate for the rest of his life.
Anybody know if he dumped wife #1 before or after hooking up with Gabby?
Mark Kelly is Sarah Brady in drag—doing the “Weekend at Bernie’s” shtick cynically dragging the vegetable spouse around in order to gain fame and personal wealth.
We now have an imperial dictator, not a potus.
Yeah, I almost noticed that.
Compared to the Obama related murders in Fast and Furious, and Bengazi, and his all out war on the American standard of living...
...exactly what did Nixon do that was so freaking horrible??? (besides give you some semblence of phony importance)
We need someone who can make a case for treating everyone the same and then point out how some groups are shown favor by the commies vs.other groups.
LOL!! Really good, you may win one of AB’s poster awards!!
