Happy Monday.

It didn't get quite as much press as the decision finding Obama's "recess" NLRB appointments unconstitutional, but the same appeals court kicked the EPA in the teeth (again) on Friday, rejecting the agency's intent to punish petroleum refiners and importers for not producing the latest green boondoggle, cellulosic biofuel, in sufficient quantities.

Not just a rumor anymore: the FBI is investigating leaks about the development and deployment of the Stuxnet virus, which is probably as good an official admission that the U.S. created it (probably with the help of Israel) as we're likely to get.

The broad strokes of the immigration reform proposal being hashed out by Democrats Charles Schumer of New York, Dick Durbin of Illinois, Robert Menendez of New Jersey and Michael Bennet of Colorado; and Republicans John McCain of Arizona, Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, Marco Rubio of Florida and Jeff Flake of Arizona: (1) a path to citizenship for illegals currently present; (2) border security; (3) advanced degree green cards; (4) employer verification program; and (5) an ag worker program.

And WHO will hold them to account for this? Ed Morrissey? Sean Hannity?

Between Choom Boy and the "Republican" eunuchs in Congress, we have pretty well given up any hope of protecting the principles on which this country was founded. Anything having to do with legality -- or even common sense -- has been demonized by the Obama toe-suckers in the media and government.

This is the ultimate failure of the go-along-to-get-along "strategy:" we have caved on the small stuff, and the America-haters of the Left have simply rolled over us. Since we can't pick a "hill to die on," one will be picked for us.

32 As far as the immigration thing goes, #1 is nothing but amnesty, #2 will be gutted by democrats by using some idiotic "virtual" fence instead of something with a snowball's chance in hell of actually working, #3 is meaningless in light of #1, #4 will be gutted by Republicans as "too burdensome on business," and #5 will be meaningless as well in light of #1. So we get amnesty and sham border security that McCain wanted years ago. And no, it won't kill the GOP because in 2 years we still be telling people no one else can win.

Posted by: DanH at January 28, 2013 07:14 AM (9Xb0G)

33 In every one of these amnesty laws that have been passed they have promised "border security" and no more after cleaning up this mess.


And in every one they have ignored the "security" part afterwards.


And the laws are written so that it virtually impossible to enforce to begin with. Until they start jailing people who hire illegals and the get rid of all the welfare for illegals they will never stop.

36 Regarding that EPA ruling, pretty much the only thing standing in the way of the EPA literally destroying the economy is the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals. That's still a conservative court. But whether that will remain the case after another four years of Obama remains to be seen.

Obviously Stuxnet was a U.S.-Israeli operation. So for equally obvious reasons the extreme left-wing elements which long ago infiltrated CIA, DOD and State will want to undercut the program and its progeny by leaking sensitive info.

Concerning immigration, the three major problems with that Reagan-Kennedy amnesty in the 1980's were that it didn't do anything really to dissuade the black market for illegal labor, that it didn't include permanent border security and that it didn't address the long-term citizenship vs. residency dichotomies.

For immigration reform to work we actually need taller and thicker fences where fences are practicable, we need draconian sanctions against businesses which after amnesty continue to employ black market labor, and we need clearly to delineate who gets deported, who gets visas, who gets green cards and who if anyone can wind up as citizens. A tough balancing act even in a vacuum. When you factor in the open borders elements on the far left and the extreme xenophobic elements of the far right it becomes pretty clear that a comprehensive reform is nothing but a pipe dream.

37 Maybe conservatives should start running as democrats, and just lie their way through campaigns, then once they get elected just flip the switch. As long as they have a D by their name the media will be too confused to say anything.

38 No I think what we need to do is start working illegally ourselves.

The Mexicans engage in welfare fraud, tax credit fraud, and subvert minimum wage laws to get employed when native labor is articially locked out of jobs.

39 There is a case to be made tat if we had followed Bush's immigration plan when he presented it (before McCain got to monkeying around with it) we would not be facing this mess today under a leftist president.

41 The first item for immigration reform should be a tightening /refining of this clause in the 14th Amendment - . All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside.

This has been the most abused clause in all of the Constitution.

46 #42 You don't. And it's nothing but a soft invasion, of course.

All I am saying is if this had been done under Bush's plan, with guest workers and securing the border under the guise of anti-terrorism (when our country was still worried about that) we would have gotten a better program and probably one without "pathway to citizenship" for the illegals.

Now we are stuck with this, and I don't see any way to avoid it. Because if Congress doesn't work together and pass something, Obama will do it by executive order.

You have a point about that. But don't forget that whatever gains the GOP might have made from a Bush amnesty would be pretty much completely wiped out within a generation due to Democrat indoctrination of Latinos in the public schools.

The Liberals have been fomenting a race war against "white people" for several decades now. Cf. Tom Hayden and his ilk.

And no more pregnancy tourism. Time to change automatic citizenship for babies born on US soil back to "at least one parent is a citizen" as well. (That's my starting position; I'll accept "or a legal permanent resident." No knocking up your cousin in Pakistan on spring break and bringing her over for the birth while you're a student and then riding the system through the baby.)

They are purposefully using targeted demographics of a single nationality to destroy the Republic and "our" fucking politicians are aiding them in doing it.

57 #47 Well, which is better: to have a generation to figure out how to keep them from becoming democrats, or have them immediately parading through the streets in support of the El Jeffe?

When immigration reform came up last time, those conservatives from safe districts and a fair number of radio talk show hosts went into a complete tizzy. Instead of figuring out how we had to do something, everyone went nutso, even though Ronald Reagan had granted a far more sweeping amnesty than Bush's program.

Well, they certainly showed Bush, didn't they? In the process, they weakened his presidency, paving the way for McCain's disastrous run and getting us a LOSS of Hispanic support and now we are going to end up with a worse immigration program.

But everyone felt good about stopping Bush's pandering to the Mexicans, so I guess we are supposed to consider that a win.
