Ingraham Battles George Will,
Fox Panel: GOP ‘Elites’
Pushing Immigration Reform

Mediaite, by Evan McMurry

Original Article

Posted By:mikkins2, 2/9/2014 6:45:05 PM

Conservative radio host Laura Ingraham battled the rest of the Fox News Sunday panel over immigration, arguing that immigration reform and current enforcement of immigration laws were weakening the American workforce, even as her fellow panelists countered that reform would bolster the economy. “I think what we’re seeing here is a split inside the Republican Party between two staunch conservatives,” host Chris Wallace said, going on to ply Ingraham with a Wall Street Journal editorial that called flinching on reform “de facto amnesty.” “As far as I can tell, the Wall Street Journal is on the side of Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer,

Laura Ingraham destroys George Will and the Republican Establishments lust for immigration reform.

Was great to hear Laura. Her program was dropped in my listening area.
She is right!

It´s truly mind-numbing how stupid our pontificating pundit class is. Caught in the spell of the Beltway Bubble. Unable to grasp even the most obvious shred of common sense, or unwilling to speak it.

Ingraham alone gets it.

George Will needs another dinner with Obama. He actually believes these illegals are going to grow our economy. Laura made him, and his partner, Jaun Williams, look like chumps.
Will was pleading for more workers from Mexico. Unbelievable! What a champion of conservatism. He needs to go back to ABC--or wherever!! Thank you, Laura.

What´s the matter with you, Laura?

Don´t you realize that George Will is highly respected by America´s elite media pundits? Don´t you remember that he used to wear only bow ties?

C´mon, lady - - you´re challenging someone who regularly goes to Georgetown cocktail parties. That simply isn´t done.

Big business, all news networks included are in this boat together. They want cheap labor and yes well educated labor lumped in with it to make it palatable. The government needs them as taxpayers and social security payers to hold up the failing system. In addition, they are going to dump all the health care of their employees on the federal government. The states are already dumping their prisoners on the federal government. Elites will continue to have the best and the rest of us who pay the bulk of the taxes won´t be able to afford the best health care for ourselves. We, the so called ´middle class´, are being screwed. This will not be a cure for the excess government spending. I forsee the healthcare dollars eventually going into the general fund exactly as they have done with Medicare and Social Security. Our representatives, for the most part, are shortsighted and/or immoral to condone this.

If the GOP doesn´t get out in front of this issue, the Dems will make sure they have full citizenship with no border security in no time. Give them some legal status and demand border security. If Obama doesn´t secure the border, voters will know who to blame. But we have to do something!

Will tipped his hand when he said it isn´t about employment, it is about growth. What he means is growth through cheap labor. He also reinforced that with his comment about losing the race for human capital (that´s what he call people like us that work for a living). He means we need our wages as low as the rest of the world. That only happens when unemployment is chronically high.

This is basic free market economics 101.

Supply and demand works for wages just as it does for products. The wage for a job is set by the amount of people who will do the job.

If the amount of jobs needed to be done exceeds the amount of workers who will do them, then the compensation for labor will rise as jobs compete to attract someone to do them.

If you flood the market with workers and those workers exceed the amount of jobs to be done, then the compensation for labor decreases as workers compete to find a job.

This is why the canard of "Jobs Americans wont do" is such an insult to peoples intelligence.

A more fitting slogan is "Jobs businesses wont pay Americans to do".

Thanks, Laura. The GOP establishment elites (and those on a first name basis with them included) are out of touch.

Judgement day is coming - don´t know how long it will be, but the people will not sit still for this elitist mumbo jumbo forever.

Elites don´t get it - they never will. That´s why the GOP is doomed.

The cheap labor argument is bogus. Illegals are already cheap. Amnesty will make them subject to labor laws, and thus no longer cheap.

Then new illegals will be brought in to do the $5 per hour work.

The 287g program was created in 2006. One of the first leaders to get trained and utilize the program was Sheriff Joe Arpaio. One sheriff was able to get up to speed on the program and identify something like 47,000 people here illegally, largely by checking the identities of people in jail and prison. Obama moved quickly cut Arpaio out of the program and then weaken it so that Hispanics would stop complaining. Once again, Obama was handed an effective government program and went out of his way to break it.

Yes indeed, why have borders if we validate those here illegally and fail to actually stop the crossings? I find the WSJ argument and Will´s interesting, but it relies upon the assumption that not passing the amnesty bill as proposed means nothing gets done and therefore that´s bad. So therefore it´s compromise for the sake of getting something no matter the absurdity of it. Clearly the Dems want the Hispanic vote and this is why they are for it, pure and simple. They couldn´t care less about the ones in the shadows, it´s all kabuki theater with illegals as props.

"Why even have borders?"

Ingraham had them there, because it´s not yet time for the elites to do the full-press open border propaganda campaign. However, that is what they plan. I´ve heard that very dream from south-of-the border leftists and from Libertarians. Our masters can´t admit it openly yet though. The goal is more control through a poorer and more malleable population.

Look the Democrats intend to grant as many illegal aliens as possible US citizenship either directly by way of amnesty, and if that is not politically possible at the time amnesty is granted, quietly after a few years when the smoke clears, so that they can be infused into the US electoral system. Common sence will tell you that the Democrats would not be doing that if they ever calculated that more then a small percentage of those new foreign born voters would ever vote for Republicans.

According to Tom DeWeese of the American Policy Center, “immigration” is one of several issues that are part of the “Sustainable Development/Agenda 21 blueprint.” The issues listed in a publication dated 8/6/09 are: “Cap N Trade, global warming, population control, gun control, open borders and illegal immigration, higher taxes, higher gas prices, refusal to drill American oil, education restructuring, international IDs, natural health supplement control, food control, farming ‘reform,’ control of private property, NAIS and UN Global Governance.”

"Reform" =

1. let´s not enforce the border, ever!
2. let´s give the Democrats an unbeatable electoral advantage; after all, they care about helping people!
3. let´s reward lawbreakers instead of punishing them - Democrats inform us that it is the compassionate thing to do, and we all want to be as compassionate as the Democrats, don´t we?

Good for Laura Ingraham.

What the beltway crowd wants is open borders. This would be a disaster for our current welfare state regime. Burdening the taxpayer with the cost of education, medical care, food stamps, and disability for tens of millions of new Mexican immigrants would require the public to bankrupt themselves.

Sen. Mike Lee of Utah launched an “anti-cronyism” agenda Monday with a column in the National Review urging the Republican Party to advocate populist, free-market reforms over tax loopholes, government subsidies and federal bailouts. That kind of Republican party, he writes “could not only unify and excite conservatives, but appeal to hardworking families in the purple and blue communities that President [Barack] Obama’s special-interest favoritism is leaving behind.” Mr. Lee is scheduled to continue the rollout with television appearances, town halls, a speech at the Heritage Foundation on April 30, and several pieces of legislation.

Will the real Republican Establishment please stand up? In the four years since the Supreme Court struck down fundraising regulations that effectively gave the Democratic and Republican parties a monopoly on large-scale political activity, a collection of Tea Party-affiliated organizations has arisen in Washington that competes with the GOP for campaign contributors, money and influence -- and over what legislation to push and which candidates to nominate. The groups, including the Club for Growth, FreedomWorks and the Senate Conservatives Fund, have moved aggressively to kill legislation they oppose and oust incumbent Republicans they deem insufficiently conservative.

In the first of a series of efforts targeting wasteful government spending, Rep. Paul Gosar (R-AZ) wrote to House Appropriations Committee chairman Rep. Hal Rogers (R-KY) last week to pressure him to include language banning the Obama administration from spending money on the program. The program, highlighted by outgoing Sen.

A group of conservative House Republicans put a Medicare “doc fix” bill in mortal peril with their objections – but then acquiesced to a plan from GOP leadership to pass it without a vote. The vote was repeatedly delayed this morning as top Republicans scrambled to find the necessary votes for the legislation. Making the problem more difficult: the bill was brought to the floor under suspension of the rules, meaning it needed a 2/3 majority rather than the normal 1/2 majority.

When House Republicans penned their Pledge to America in 2010, they convinced American voters they would advance a conservative agenda if they regained control of the House that year. Four years later, what promises have they actually delivered? ObamaCare is still intact, our national debt has grown by $3 trillion, and Republicans have capitulated to Democrats on every issue from the debt ceiling to the budget. Republican leaders in both the House and the Senate have failed conservatives and have failed to keep their Pledge to America. Let’s examine how the GOP pledge has fallen flat.

Maine’s tea party governor, reared in poverty, is on a mission to reform the state’s welfare system. Gov. Paul LePage rolled out a four-proposal package on Monday that will get committee hearings in the legislature Tuesday afternoon. The reforms, which mostly tighten restrictions around the program, are part of an ongoing crusade against what LePage has described as a bloated program. “Big, expensive welfare programs riddled with fraud and abuse threaten our future,” he said in his state of the state speech last month. “Too many Mainers are dependent on government handouts. Government dependency has not — and never will— create prosperity.”

How does the Republican Party establishment choose its presidential candidate? Typically, constitutionalists accuse their establishment rivals of being moderate, risk-averse, stubborn old fools who lack faith in conservative principles. This is a soothing interpretation, as it begins from the hypothesis that the contest between conservatives and the GOP elite is a family feud. But there is another hypothesis -- less soothing, but, at least from an outsider´s bird´s-eye view, more reconcilable with the facts. This hypothesis is that America has reached a stage of progressive soft despotism in which the only important family feud in national politics is between the fundamentally

A caveat right off the bat: RAND’s estimate only runs through March 28 whereas the actual deadline for signing up was March 31st. Given the crush of traffic on Healthcare.gov in late March, many more people could have signed up over those last three days than were captured by these numbers. On the other hand, the White House was claiming six million sign-ups as of March 27. There’s no way to reconcile that with RAND’s data. One of them is wrong. Maybe both, in fact.

A new review is questioning the effectiveness of two key drugs enlisted in the fight against influenza and in turn the investments by governments to stockpile the drugs in the event of a global flu outbreak. The antiviral drugs Tamiflu (oseltamivir) and Relenza (zanamivir ) are commonly used to treat influenza in healthy adults and children. In the case of Tamiflu, the drug does shorten symptoms of influenza by about half a day - as the manufacturer suggests - but there is insufficient evidence to support claims that it reduces hospital admissions or serious complications, such as confirmed pneumonia or

Although the news media and Hollywood relish telling stories about horrific crimes and serial killers, they are strangely silent about Dr. Kermit Gosnell, an abortionist who killed living, viable babies by snipping their spinal cords with scissors, and who is “America’s most prolific serial killer,” said actor Kevin Sorbo and his wife Sam Jenkins in a video to promote funding for a movie about Gosnell. “Kermit Gosnell is America’s most prolific serial killer,” says Kevin Sorbo, who starred in the TV series Hercules: The Legendary Journeys. “For more than three decades he was an abortion doctor in Philadelphia, where he

Eric Holder ventured off script in a speech Wednesday to the National Action Network, the organization led by MSNBC host and recently-exposed FBI informant Al Sharpton. “I’m pleased to note that the last five years have been defined by significant strides and by lasting reforms,” said Holder at the conference of black activists, before improvising “even in the face, even in the face, of unprecedented, unwarranted, ugly, and divisive adversity.” “If you don’t believe that, if you look at the way, forget about me, forget about me, if you look at the way the attorney general of the United States was treated

Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) could face up to five years in federal prison for obstructing a Congressional proceeding. On Wednesday, Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA) and five Subcommittee Chairmen on the committee sent a letter to Ranking Member Cummings demanding an explanation for his staff’s queries from the IRS, why the Minority hid these efforts from the Majority, and why the Ranking Member denied such actions by his staff at a February Subcommittee hearing: “Although you have previously denied that your staff made inquiries to the IRS about conservative organization True the Vote that may have led to additional

As a former President of The Most Powerful Country In The World, George W Bush has significantly greater access to world leaders than most budding artists. (Snip) Art critics have pointed out that a number of the 30 portraits in the exhibition appear to be based on images thrown up by a cursory search of the person´s name in Google Images. In some cases the portrait seems to have been based on the very first image result on the search engine. Rather remarkably, even the portrait of his own father, someone who he surely could have asked to sit for him, appears to be based on an Associated Press portrait which appears on the first page of

Barack quickly stepped in and grabbed the First Lady´s billowing skirt to help her avoid a wardrobe malfunction and embarrassing Marilyn Monroe moment. Earlier in the week, another famous lady on the global stage suffered a similar snafu, but no one was around to help her -- not even her prince!

This morning I clicked on a link to a Red State website article concerning “The War on Women” and “Paycheck Equality” and got quite a surprise (the same thing happens when a Firefox user goes directly to the article).
