Decoding a Dem A Colloquy The last blast ended with a back-and-forth with a Dem; earlier, I had been challenged regarding Cruz [the TEA party darling] and government-benefits. Cruz was attacked for holding positions on social issues of significant concern [Cruz is pro-life, with an exception only when a pregnancy endangers the mothers life.[77][78] Cruz opposes same-sex marriage, stating that he instead supports marriage between one man and one woman,[79] but believes that the legality of same-sex marriage should be left to each state to decide.]; further, they were portrayed as potential game-changers [This is highly problematic regardless of whether these issues are included in the so-called platform of fiscal responsibility and an expressed focus on foreign policy. You may be correct that there is diversity in views on social issues; but, this is your lead man the very one you would like to get the nomination. I cannot trust that his focus will not stray into social issues.]. This was my reply: Your choice will be between someone who is pro-life and otherwise fantastic vs. anyone who is 100% pro-choice and otherwise deeply-flawed, due to having supported BHO. Government benefits [Social Security, Medicare, and veterans education], it was argued, should not be opposed because inter alia these entities had received contributions from workers [financial] and from veterans [risking their lives]. Specifically, in the fourth quarter of 2011, 49,901,000 people received Social Security, 46,440,000 received Medicare, 3,178,000 veterans received benefits, and 34,000 veterans received educational assistance. Perhaps overall numbers are inflated to make a point [the very thing you disdain about most of the liberal media] but, regardless, I was dared to oppose these expenditures. This is my reply: I do not oppose these expenditures, but future potential-beneficiaries must accept a higher retirement-age, as they pay-in to social security and should be allowed to invest some of these monies privately [as might be done through other retirement programs]. Although the situation remains unsettled, there is considerable flux regarding efforts to prompt the full Senate to vote on PAs Mandatory Holocaust Education Bill; it is suspected, however, that further activity in this regard will not transpire until next week [for its Good Friday]. Key personnel have been IDed and the major impediments have been outed; necessary strategizing proceeds and, thus, until clarity has emerged, no effort will yet be promulgated to organize a mass-mailer or lobbying-deluge. Im told matters will have crystallized within a week and, immediately thereafter, a prognosis will be made; thus, in the interim, efforts will be focused on ensuring our people remain steadfast.

Republicans ready to push legal status for Illegals commentary magazine boehner-wont-split-gop-on-immigration-reform Count me among those who think the Senate bill was the right approach in many respects. The immigration system is broken and needs a complete overhaul that includes strengthening border security as well as dealing with the reality of approximately 12 million illegals, many of whom have been here for decades and are no threat to anyone.

House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) asserted he sees no reason why the House cannot come to an agreement on a legal status for illegal aliens so long as other conditions are met.Goodlatte also stated that any amnesty proposal put forth by the GOP should include employment verification or entry-exit triggers to address concerns that any pending amnesty will simply be a repeat of 1986. Thats a reasonable concern. But I think it can be addressed[W]e can say the legal status is not provided until things like employment verification electronic employment verification or entry/exit visa programs are up and operating effectively. Last year, Chairman Goodlatte began suggesting Congress grant amnesty to certain subsets of the illegal alien population. Last fall, he said illegal aliens who claim to be brought to the U.S. as minors (socalled DREAMers) should be granted citizenship through education or military service requirements. (Politico, Sept. 19, 2013) I wouldnt give them what I would call a special pathway to citizenship, I would give them an earned pathway to citizenship, he said. (Id.) Regarding the broader illegal alien population, Goodlatte suggested Congress grant them immediate legalization and allow them to receive green cards and eventual citizenship through the current family-based and employment-based sponsorship channels. (Id.) We have to find the appropriate legal status for people who are not lawfully here, Goodlatte said. (Id.) The Great GOP Establishment Amnesty Swindle - With an eerie resemblance to the drumbeat leading up to Obamacare, Republican leaders are creating a sense of urgency that immigration must be addressed now. And much like Obamacare is doing to our already-broken healthcare system, their proposals will exacerbate the very factors that have broken our immigration system over the past few decades. However, GOP leaders know that their party base is not buying their sense of urgency, their understanding of why our immigration system is broken, and their solution to fixing it. And unlike Democrats who seek to empower and energize their base to fight Republicans, GOP leaders are planning to bamboozle the base into supporting them in 2014, only to drop the hammer on them a year later. 84-house-republicans-support-legalizing-undocumented-workers The Conservative-Rs are staunchly-opposed.

Shear : The two women might at first seem more like political rivals than a reminder of the way things used to work in Washington. Esther Olavarria, a Democrat, left Cuba as a child, worked as Senator Edward M. Kennedys top immigration lawyer and now holds a post in the White House. Rebecca Tallent, a Republican, left suburban Arizona and became Senator John McCains chief of staff, briefly advised Sarah Palin in 2008 and is now a top policy aide to Speaker John A. Boehner of Ohio. But if there is any way to unlock the immigration stalemate in Washington, colleagues say these two might find it. A decade ago, the two women spent months in marathon back-room deal-making sessions as they repeatedly tried to bring lawmakers together on overhauls that would have given legal status to immigrants, secured the border and opened the country to more legal workers. In the process, they formed a friendship that transcended party affiliation.

Putin Recall that OReilly would simply cut-off their capacity to use USA-Credit-Cards; this is another view: I would support any action that results in significant economic pain to Russia, sufficient to cause them to temper further expansion. I would rather see Pennsylvania natural gas replace Russian natural gas and see that we have some real benefit with an expanding market (notwithstanding the fact that they will need to pay for it). Given the liquidity of the Russian oligarchs and the multi-national presence that they have in cash deposits personally, through companies that they control, and through joint accounts with partners that are not Russian, the credit card reference is something I have no feeling for its potential for impact. If you recall the recent anti-Semitic swelling going on in Hungary, Romania and elsewhere in the East European arena, its a misplaced notion that Russians have any monopoly on this rising trend in all of that Region. This site will illustrate the historic level of anti-Semitism of the Ukrainian people and the scale of their atrocities historically. There is an interesting geopolitical suggestion, that I havent subscribed to yet, that suggests if you look at the people that the Russians are constantly fighting with constant loss of life, etc. You would not necessarily run to the support of the groups fighting Russians in Chechnia, the Northern Caucases, Kazakstan, etc. These are rabid Jihadists who employ all of the terrorist tactics emanating from Al Queda led initiatives. If the Russians dont take them on, there is no other power in the region capable of stopping their coalescence in the next Radical Caliphate of the Region. I would assert power, not the blood of American youth, to assert the superiority and strength of the USA in any conflict that threatens the standing of this Country. I would not object to extreme violence against Russians, Iranians, and others who threaten our security and who threaten Israel. I believe that a show of deadly force is effective against backward regimes that dont share our values and who advocate our death, even at risk of losing their own lives and the lives of their families.

These are people who do not share the same values and who wouldnt hesitate to unleash violence against us if they believed that they wouldnt perish in the process. Unfortunately, only the application of mass violence on certain cultures results in their later refraining from doing so with us. They see our reluctance to employ devastating tactics as weakness. I dont want to mistake the exercise of violent action as a condoning in the launching of nuclear missiles. MAD is as senseless as debating the Ayatollahs, for me. When George HW Bush hit Iraq over the Kuwait invasion, the Iranian secret service in the person of Major General Qassem Suleimani met clandestinely with American military intelligence and begged that they (the Iranians) not be invaded next, and offered strategic intelligence on the Iraqis as good faith. Now Suleimani handpicked the successor to Iraqi leadership and is directly aiding Shia fighters in Syria and in Iraq in murdering American troops still stationed there. He measured us as weak and is exploiting this on behalf of his masters in Teheran. Our enemies need to fear our willingness to hurt them if they threaten us. Fighting terrorists who exploit asymmetric warfare is difficult. Identifying state sponsored forces is not so difficult and we have the technology to influence outcomes. A hellfire missile and napalm attach on the Quds forces and Hezbollah by a sky filled with predator drones would do wonders for the foreign policy issues that get no traction with Chamberlain-esque diplomacy. You ask me about cutting their credit cards and I say change the real estate, dramatically. Is there anyone with the courage to suggest that Halliburton provide accounting support for the billions it received prior to its fleeing to the Arabian peninsula? With the potential of an audit, it picked up and moved to United Arab Emirates. This move led by a former vice president of the United States, no less. If there are people who believe that, because Sarah Palin was the governor of a state that borders the Russian Republic, that she has qualifications to expound on American foreign policy, it doesnt mean that serious attention is warranted. George Wallace, Ross Perot, and Gus Hall had followings that were significant in their own camps. Sarah Palin is the new Evita to an audience who enjoys oversimplified quips and junior high school level commentary. Strong action that surprises and disciplines an adversary is what I advocate. I cant get serious about cutting credit, freezing accounts and nipping at their heels. The Ukrainians shouldnt be encouraged to engage in military intervention in Russian-speaking Ukraine unless we want to enjoy their being castrated by Moscow-led agent provocateurs and military. They arent worth loss of American life any more than people of Ossetia or Moldova. I would punish the Russians for thinking that can be a world power again which they cant. I would humiliate them to teach them not to threaten our interests, but I wouldnt

join sides with their enemies in the Caucasus mountains. By training the jihadis in Afghanistan to fight the Russians, we armed the very people who fought us in Afghanistan. There is no surprise sudden weakness in American foreign policy from BHO. There is the continuing idiotic foreign policy that fails to recognize our strategic interests are more important than infantile ideas of teaching people living in the 7th century about American democracy. There is no clearer picture than Afghanistan at what an utter failure, waste of American young lives, and waste of Afghani blood that we naively thought needed our way of life. The only decent ally in the Muslim world went rogue with the election of Erdogan. What happened to the idea that friends do well, enemies get punished. What genius came up with the idea that we need to become attentive to Pakistan because India was sucking up to the soviets. Letting these people develop nuclear weapons which they exported because India wouldnt join our camp against the Russians? Letting them acquire F-15 attack planes and anti-missile technology is akin to selling assault weapons to the Mexican drug cartels.
