‘I’m So Tired of Your Mocking’:
O’Reilly, Powers Battle over
Immigration

Mediaite, by Josh Feldman

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 7/9/2014 11:28:48 AM

Kirsten Powers snapped at Bill O’Reilly tonight after he told her she doesn’t know what she’s talking about on immigration, and told O’Reilly she’s tired of him mocking liberals every day on every single issue just because “they care about people.” Powers argued that O’Reilly’s getting his facts wrong and that immigrants coming to the U.S. back in the day (like the Irish) were poor and uneducated, much like the immigrants O’Reilly is so worried about today. O’Reilly dismissed Powers and told her, “You don’t seem to really know what you’re talking about.” That really set Powers off. “I am

Comments:
For once O´Reilly is right. Powers lost any shred of credibility she may have had because her opinion is that we should have open borders and take children from all over the world. It´s extremely difficult to comprehend that insane point of view. Leftists like her never bother to explain how detrimental this is to the American people and it will collapse our economy.

Democrats DO NOT Care about people. The care about lining their pockets and raw political power. Lucianne has a headline right now "Nagin gets 10 Years." Wonder how many people he ripped off with a "D" after his name.

Let´s think about this. We educate the entire world´s children about liberty, republic, small government, then send them home to implement what they learned???? I dunno this has possibilities.

Anyone who´d thought ditz Powers had mellowed was smoking something funny. She is Dem Lib to the core and not the brightest bulb. (Anthony Weiner dumped HER when they were likethis. And she mourned it. Oy.)

She is showing her true colors (maybe Someone got to her?) and is very snappish these days.

Hoping Bret Baier cuts back her gigs on his program. We don´t need a blonde, white, nasty female Juan.

America does have a problem with income inequality; where the top 1% possess 40% of America´s wealth. And Democrats love to get votes claiming they will reduce income inequality. But inequality continues to climb. Democrats and most Republicans have never done anything to help the situation since they are part of the 1% and the 1% are the major contributers to political campaigns. The difference between Democrats and Republicans is that Democrats will lie about it to get your vote.
Yeah, they claim to care as long as someone else does the heaving lifting, just as Kristen does as she makes her rounds.
If Kristen really cared, she could afford to take a few of them under her benevolent wing, but she will claim she can´t afford it... the same reason America can´t support them, it can´t afford it.

O´Reilly really got to her. Pulling that tired dem tactic of quoting Emma Lazarus, she failed to acknowledge that the Statue of Liberty sits next to Ellis Island - at one time, the first stop for LEGAL immigrants from around the world - or that there was no welfare at the time to drain the pockets of those hard-working Americans already here. She may be pro-life, but her true, weiner-dating colors came through last night.

O´Reilly is nearly unbearable but she is worse. A core lib, infected since birth. No cure possible.

Fox, in general, is becoming unbearable on many of its programs, especially F & F in the morning.

Doocy, the interminable teenage boy and Brian with his s-eating grin and his inside jokes that he shares only with himself.

And the new gal, Hasslebeck, did she work hard to create such a twinkie voice? I can´t stand to listen to her. Lots of women have that silly little girl voice now. What´s the allure?

My Dad immigrated in 1921 at age 17. . he joined his mother´s brother in Atlantic city and learn the trade of bricklaying. In five years he worked for himself building
chimneys in NYC buildings. A move was underway to convert cold water flat and furnaces need chimneys.He soon met my mother and by 1927 he built them a 2 family house in the Bronx, the house I was born in in 1929. My grandparents lived on the 1st floor, we lived above. 85 years later the house still
stands.YES HE DID IT BY HIMSELF. NO WELFARE. Learned to speak English, became a citizen, unfortunately it took him until WWII to understand capitalism and Reuplicanism was the better way.

Powers had lost credibility long before this exchange. NO Ms. Powers, we DO NOT want to let all these diseased and poor children into our country. And, yes, MS Powers, they ALL want all the benefits they can get. Our schools are crowded with these poorly behaved children; they want everything. They get FREE food, FREE housing, FREE medical care, FREE education, and FREE money. What is wrong with this woman? Why isn´t Ms. Powers and all the rest of the bleeding heart liberals more concerned that our veterans are being left to die, when they truly deserve their benefits.

My first suggestion is that Kristen go to the border and see for herself what is happening. If they can´t find the parents, they are giving them to others to foster. They don´t seem to care who takes them; just take them. They can end up in abusive families and being used as modern day slaves. How about adopting 5 for yourself, Kristen. These bleeding heart liberals make me sick. They never walk the talk.

There is NO problem in America regarding wealth distribution. NONE. Split it all up, give each American an equal share and within a year the distribution would be the same.

Comparing LEGAL immigrants who came through Ellis Island with skills, papers, money and addresses where they would be living as my grandparents and great grandparents did AFTER passing a health test to the disease ridden criminal hordes invading our Southern border is not only false it is ludicrous.
I can get my great grandparents Ellis records today - why are Feds Prohibited from asking the " parents" of these children their legal status?

The attacks on Kirsten Powers are unfounded. Bill O´Reilly appears to not want her on "his" program, and talks over her and attacks everything she says. Fox does not need to be like MSNBC,and to an extent, ABC, NBC and CBS by having an absolute echo chamber.

O´Reilly cannot stop talking long enough to understand where Powers is coming from. I have never heard her say she supports open borders. She did say we need to take care of the children that have entered our country. That is humane. She has not said they should be allowed to stay, as far as I have heard.

You can listen to the other side and consider what they are saying without having to change your mind. Some of these comments are merely reverse of what the progressives do in their quest to silence opposing opinions.

Filmmaker Spike Lee joined Anderson Cooper live on CNN Tuesday in order to express his outrage over the police action against protesters in Ferguson, Missouri in the 10 days following the fatal shooting of unarmed teenager Michael Brown by a police officer there. “We don’t need snipers on top of the tanks pointing at civilians,” Lee said, advocating for retired Lieutenant General Russel L.

President Obama returned to his vacation home at Martha’s Vineyard after briefly interrupting his vacation for two days of meetings in Washington, D.C. Obama met with his economic team Tuesday before leaving the White House at 4:22 pm to return to his vacation home. He did not react to the news that broke later that evening about an ISIS video that showed the beheading of American journalist James Wright Foley. The National Security Council reacted, however, in a statement provided by spokesperson Caitlin Hayden. “We have seen a video that purports to be the murder of U.S. citizen James Foley by ISIL,” Hayden said.

President Obama went back to his vacation on Martha’s Vineyard Tuesday evening following less than 48 hours in Washington, leaving people puzzled over why he came back in the first place. Obama’s two days in Washington were mostly quiet, and concluded with the president receiving his daily national security briefing in the morning, and joining Vice President Biden to huddle with members of his economic team in the afternoon. Administration officials have insisted for weeks that the president just wanted to return to the White House for a series of meetings, but the explanation was met with a healthy dose

HOUSTON, Texas -- Late last week Mexico´s foreign ministry vocalized strong opposition to the presence of the National Guard at the Texas-Mexico border amid the current border crisis. A statement from the foreign ministry reportedly said that Mexico "reiterates, in a firm and categorical way, its rejection of this measure.

Local St. Louis sources said Wilson suffered an “orbital blowout fracture to the eye socket.” This comes from a source within the District Attorney’s office and confirmed by the St. Louis County Police.

Violence continues in Ferguson, Missouri. It began on August 9 with the death of Michael Brown, an unarmed African-American teenager cut down by a white cop’s bullets. Peaceful demonstrations turned into looting, the local police went in with rubber bullets and tear gas, all hell broke loose and, eventually, Missouri’s governor pulled out the local police and sent in state officers instead. But the rioting only paused; it didn’t cease.

FERGUSON, Missouri — It was a little after 9 p.m., and I was in the McDonald’s parking lot, standing by my car. A police helicopter circled overhead, its spotlight sweeping back and forth.Then I heard the sound of shattering glass: A rubber bullet had been fired through a window of McDonald’s, which until then, had been one of the few sanctuaries on West Florissant Avenue. Now I didn’t feel safe anywhere. State troopers in riot gear and armored trucks moved south on West Florissant, firing flash grenades and tear gas canisters at a crowd of protesters who only minutes before had been

From nearly 1,000 miles away, several Redskins players used the Monday Night Football stage to draw attention to the situation that has been unfolding in Ferguson, Missouri by running onto FedExField with their hands up in the air. Ferguson is where unarmed 18-year-old Michael Brown was shot and killed by a white police officer on Aug. 9. Witnesses have said he was not aggressive toward the officer and had his hands raised above his head before he was shot.

Barack Obama’s presidency isn’t just shrinking, it’s losing support among its most critical point — its base. Less than two years ago, Barack Obama became the first Democratic president since FDR to win re-election with a popular-vote majority.
