Washington Times: Bush, senators agree on alien citizenship, shut out critics

President Bush and a group of senators yesterday reached general agreement on an immigration bill that includes a pathway to citizenship for many illegal aliens.

But left out of the closed-door White House meeting were senators who oppose a path to citizenship. The meeting even snubbed two men who had been considered allies of Mr. Bush on immigration — Sen. John Cornyn, Texas Republican and chairman of the immigration subcommittee, and Sen. Jon Kyl, Arizona Republican.

Mr. Bush in brief remarks to the press said there was agreement to get “a bill that does not grant automatic amnesty to people, but a bill that says, somebody who is working here on a legal basis has the right to get in line to become a citizen.” But senators, speaking afterward, said Mr. Bush was far more specific in the meeting.

“There was a pretty good consensus that what we have put into the Hagel-Martinez proposal here is the right way to go,” said Sen. Mel Martinez, Florida Republican. “I think he was very clear [on] pathway to citizenship, so long as it goes to the back of the line, and he even opened the door here for something we’ve haggled back and forth on, that you can shrink the time for people to become citizens by simply enlarging the number of green cards.”

And Sen. Sam Brownback, Kansas Republican, said Mr. Bush “endorsed the concept of an earned citizenship.”

That would represent a substantial change on the part of the Bush administration, which just last year said it opposed a path to citizenship for those currently here illegally.


The President was wrong on Harriet Miers and he is wrong on this illegal immigration amnesty plan.

Contact the White House and tell them Mexico Border Security FIRST and NO ILLEGAL ALIEN AMNESTY.

If GOP Republicans have to FILIBUSTER this bill – so be it!

No Bill is better than this bill.


Oh, yes, the bipartisan open-borders collaborators are thrilled:




Who will clean up the mess at DHS?

If you loved the fraud that resulted after the 1986 mass amnesty, wait ’til you see what’s coming next.

Captain Ed: Not Invited To The Party

Cornyn’s office downplayed the snub, saying that any message about an end to partisan bickering and blocking votes had to be meant for the Minority Leader and didn’t require the Texan’s presence. Still, one has to wonder why two staunch allies of the President got ignored for this key meeting. It appears that the White House wants to build consensus through ignoring those who have a different perspective on immigration and pretending that they don’t exist.

Another issue that apparently doesn’t exist is border security. While everyone at this meeting kept their concern focused on people who entered the country illegally, none of them addressed the issue of ensuring that the illegals entries get stopped. Instead, the words “Hagel-Martinez” slid off of the lips of attendees as smoothly as one might say “Simpson-Mazzoli”.

The Bush administration is about to go squishy on a national-security issue, and unlike the overblown Dubai ports deal, this one actually has real security implications for the US. It is a national disgrace that more than four years after 9/11, we still have not credibly secured our southern border. During a war in which our enemy moves primarily by stealth and attacks exclusively through individual or small-group terrorist actions, allowing the unfettered movement of people on the vast scale we see presents a clear danger to our nation. Instead of focusing on that, the President has aligned himself with Democrats and the handful of Republicans who put political correctness (and political expediency) ahead of their Constitutional duties.

The last time we saw this kind of alliance, Washington passed the BCRA into law.

Cornyn and Kyl need our help to get this administration focused on real border security before worrying about earned citizenship. I could accept the latter as a reasonable compromise as long as we have established the former first. That’s the broad consensus that Americans have in regards to immigration reform, not the warmed-over rehash of a failed policy from twenty years ago.

Will GOP Senators in an election year have the COJONES to take on the President?

Senator Allen?

Senator Frist?

Stay tuned…..

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad vowed that Iran will ignore any UN Security Council demands to halt its disputed nuclear programme.

AFP: Iran to ignore Security Council demands to halt nuclear drive

Iran will ignore any UN Security Council demands to halt its disputed nuclear programme, hardline President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad vowed.

“We won’t back down one iota on our lawful and inalienable rights,” the president was quoted as saying by the official news agency IRNA.

“If international institutions respect our legitimate rights, we will respect their decisions. However, we will not regard these decisions as valid if they are intended to deny us our rights,” he said.

“We hope they will fulfil their duty lawfully so that the Islamic republic will not need to reconsider its relations with them.”

According to Ahmadinejad, the dispute served as a “trial for international bodies to prove whether they are defending the rights of nations or whether they are acting as puppets in the hands of some bullying powers”.

The rest of the world, he added, must “accept Iran as a nuclear country, which is an undeniable fact.”

“The few countries opposed to us … want to make us give concessions through psychological warfare and propaganda,” he was quoted as saying.

The Sunday London Times: Iran’s president recruits terror master 

Plot for revenge attacks on West 

IRAN’S president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, attended a meeting in Syria earlier this year with one of the world’s most wanted terrorists, according to intelligence experts and a former national security official in Washington.

US officials and Israel intelligence sources believe Imad Mugniyeh, the Lebanese commander of Hezbollah’s overseas operations, has taken charge of plotting Iran’s retaliation against western targets should President George W Bush order a strike on Iranian nuclear sites.

Mugniyeh is on the FBI’s “Most Wanted Terrorists” list for his role in a series of high-profile attacks against the West, including the 1985 hijacking of a TWA jet and murder of one of its passengers, a US navy diver.

Now in his mid-forties, Mugniyeh is reported to have travelled with Ahmadinejad in January this year from Tehran to Damascus, where the Iranian president met leaders of Hezbollah, Islamic Jihad and Hamas.

The meeting has been dubbed a “terror summit” because of the presence of so many groups behind attacks on Israel, which Ahmadinejad has threatened to wipe from the map.

Jane’s Intelligence Review cited “reports in recent weeks” of Mugniyeh’s presence alongside the president.

Head of head of Iran ‘s nuclear energy program Gholamreza Aghazadeh speaks to journalists in Bushehr, Iran in this February 26, 2006 file photo. He headed to 11th-hour talks at the International Atomic Energy Agency on April 26 but the move looked too late to decisively alter an imminent IAEA report to the U.N. Security Council .

AFP: Last-ditch talks between Iran and UN nuclear agency

The head of Iran’s nuclear agency, Vice President Gholam Reza Aghazadeh, was to hold last-ditch talks with the UN nuclear watchdog, two days before a UN deadline for Tehran to suspend uranium enrichment.

However hardline Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad reiterated in Tehran earlier Wednesday that Iran would ignore any UN Security Council demands to halt its disputed nuclear program.

“We won’t back down one iota on our lawful and inalienable rights,” the president was quoted as saying by the official news agency IRNA.

The Security Council set on March 29 a non-binding, 30-day deadline for Iran to honor the watchdog.

ASSociated Press: Iranian Leader Warns U.S. Against Attack

Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said Wednesday that if the United States attacks Iran, U.S. interests around the world would be harmed, state-run Tehran television reported.

Speaking to laborers on the occasion of the International Laborers Day, Khamenei said U.S. officials have been using threatening language against Iran for the past 27 years, but the Iranian nation and officials do not care about the threats.

“The Iranian nation and its officials are peace-seekers and the Islamic republic would not invade anybody,” the television quoted Khamenei as saying.

But he added: “The Americans should know that if they invade Iran, their interests around the world would be harmed. Iran will respond double-fold to any attack.”

More BLOVIATIONS from the Mullahs and President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad but SO WHAT! Iran will not willingly abandon their quest for nuclear weapons and the United States/Israel WILL deny them.

Look for a NEGATIVE IAEA report being leaked later today.

Stay tuned…….
