  • Buchanan Calls For Tougher Border Control; Candidate Wants to End `Invasion of the Country'

    11/19/2014 7:04:08 PM PST · by 11th_VA · 22 replies
    Republican presidential contender Patrick J. Buchanan chided President Clinton and the GOP-controlled Congress yesterday for failing to secure U.S. borders and endorsed legislation that would deny automatic citizenship to children of illegal immigrants. Buchanan also called for legislation making English the country's official language and for at least a doubling of the Border Patrol. And he called anew for two other components of his immigration policy: a double security fence along the most porous section of the U.S-Mexico border and a five-year moratorium on virtually all immigration so that newcomers to the United States could be assimilated.

    The Washington Examiner's Washington Secrets ^ | April 29, 2014 | Paul Bedard
    Republicans like former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee the most and consider him the best qualified potential GOP presidential candidate among the major contenders. But, as with the rest, they aren't psyched for him to run, according to a new Economist/ survey. Some 72 percent of Republicans like Huckabee, a Fox host and conservative populist. That beats Sen. Rand Paul, at 66 percent, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie at 62 percent, and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush at 60 percent. And 51 percent of Republicans also view him as qualified to be president, more than the rest again. But as previous...

    U.S. Senate ^ | Monday, January 28, 2013 | Sen. Ted Cruz
    WASHINGTON, DC -- U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) issued the following statement regarding today’s bipartisan immigration reform proposal: I appreciate the good work that senators in both parties have put into trying to fix our broken immigration system. There are some good elements in this proposal, especially increasing the resources and manpower to secure our border and also improving and streamlining legal immigration. However, I have deep concerns with the proposed path to citizenship. To allow those who came here illegally to be placed on such a path is both inconsistent with rule of law and profoundly unfair to the...

    Powerful conservative Sen. Jim DeMint, R-S.C., thinks former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin deserves a prime speaking position at the Republican convention. "I'd love to see Sarah Palin have a big slot — as far as speaking — because there's no one still in America that excites the base of conservatives and even libertarians as she does,” he told Fox News Thursday. “She can draw a crowd more than any other Republican, and I think has more influence in primaries than any other endorsement right now, so I think she'd be good."

    Former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee took a different approach to a potential run for president, praising Mississippi governor Haley Barbour Monday. “I would consider him a colleague who wants the same job,” said Mr. Huckabee said Monday. “I think Haley could be a very strong candidate, and I believe he has possibly the most brilliant political mind in America … I owe a lot of my political life to Haley.”

    ABC ^ | 11/8/10 | Rick Klein
    Sarah Palin isn’t the only former governor/former mayor who’s mulling a run for president in 2012. On ABC’s “Top Line” today, former Gov. George Pataki, R-N.Y., told us that – as Palin has said – he’ll run for president if he determines the other Republican candidates don’t offer the right kind of leadership going forward. “When you look back at the past two years, it's been very disappointing, not only -- not just for Republicans, but for the American people,” Pataki told us. “And I think it shows the importance of experienced leadership -- leaders who have shown the ability...

    As rumored, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, whose endorsement gave former Hewlett-Packard chief Carly Fiorina a boost in the Republican campaign for the U.S. Senate nomination, gave her some more help Monday: a recorded call that went out to 650,000 likely Republican voters in California, according to Fiorina spokeswoman Julie Soderlund. Here is what Palin had to say: “Hi. This is Sarah Palin calling for the Carly for California campaign. I’m calling to ask you to vote for Carly Fiorina, the commonsense conservative running for United States Senate. You know thankfully Carly is not a career politician. She’s a businesswoman...

    TUCSON - J.D. Hayworth, a former congressman and conservative AM radio host, nearly lost his voice this week delivering fiery attacks on John McCain, the Republican 2008 presidential nominee whom Hayworth accuses of betraying his party and getting too cozy with East Coast liberals. The four-term senator, says Hayworth, "is not the John McCain we knew." Hayworth’s assault from the right in a GOP primary has forced McCain to launch an early, aggressive defense of his seat. And today, McCain will attempt to enhance his conservative bona fides by hosting the party’s new darling, US Senator Scott Brown of Massachusetts,...

    After months of struggling to harness the energy of newly engaged tea party activists, the conservative establishment — with critical midterm congressional elections on the horizon — is taking aim for the first time at the movement’s extremist elements. The move has been cast by some conservatives as a modern version of the marginalization of the far-right, anti-communist John Birch Society during the reorganization of the conservative movement spearheaded by William F. Buckley Jr. in the 1960s and 1970s. “A similar effort will be required today of conservative political and intellectual leaders,” former Bush speechwriter Michael Gerson wrote in his column in...

    It better be good. The GOP has a lot of making up to do and it NEEDS to present a strong conservative message especially in the areas of limited government and drilling. And McCain had better pick a good VP. I don't know what emotion I'd call it, but I'm definitely ready to watch this convention.

    A Republican primary challenge to Senator Chafee of Rhode Island is attracting backing from national groups that favor tax cuts and a strong U.S.-Israel relationship. The mayor of Cranston, R.I., Stephen Laffey, 43, is hoping to unseat Lincoln Chafee, a Republican who was appointed to the Senate in 1999 after the unexpected death of his father, John Chafee, and who won election to his father's former seat the following year.

    Sen. John McCain is preparing for a 2008 showdown with former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who so far who leads him in the presidential race according to most polls. While the two men remain personally friendly, sharing dinner recently at a Manhattan bistro, Newsday reports that McCain's team is monitoring Giuliani's every move - including keeping track of how much face time the former mayor gets on TV. Meanwhile, McCain insiders aren't shy about trashing the former mayor's presidential prospects. "In my humble opinion, Rudy wouldn't get out of the gate," longtime McCain strategist John Dennehy tells the...
