  • Florida Attorney General Bill McCollum on Wednesday proposed tougher curbs against illegal migrants in his melting-pot state which he said would go "one step further" than a similar contested Arizona law.

    The proposal by McCollum, who is lagging in a race to become the Republican candidate for governor, was certain to thrust Florida into the heated immigration debate that is a major issue ahead of November 2 midterm Congressional elections.

    "This legislation will provide new enforcement tools for protecting our citizens and will help our state fight the ongoing problem created by illegal immigration," McCollum said, presenting the proposed measures at an event in Orlando.

  • The jury in the Rod Blagojevich corruption trial sent a note to Judge James Zagel Wednesday afternoon saying that they couldn't reach a decision on a number of counts.

    "We've gone beyond reasonable attempts [to reach a verdict]," the jury said in a note. Zagel noted they have reached the impasse without "rancor," or heated infighting.

    The jury then asked to go home for the day.

    Zagel said he needs further clarification on which charges they are undecided before deciding on the next step.

  • We know the politics of illegal immigration: the open borders libertarian and corporate right wanted access to cheap workers, with the ensuing social costs born by the state. In contrast, Dem interests favor the notion that millions of new constituents will need some public assistance, that 100's of thousands of new federal,state employees will be needed to administer to them, and both groups will record their thanks at the polls — especially important in existing 50/50 state and federal congressional districts of the Southwest.
    In short, without the arrival of the illegal alien in massive numbers without education, capital, legality and English, the Hispanic activists and cultural elite have no reason to be, since soon there would be no disparity that can be blamed on oppression or racism — and thus no need for self-appointed collective representation. La Raza would have no raza when a Hilda Lopez marries Larry Smith and their daughter Linda Lopez Smith marries Billy Otomo and so on.
  • For the Obama administration, the prospect of a nuclearized Iran is dismal to contemplate— it would create major new national-security challenges and crush the president’s dream of ending nuclear proliferation. But the view from Jerusalem is still more dire: a nuclearized Iran represents, among other things, a threat to Israel’s very existence. In the gap between Washington’s and Jerusalem’s views of Iran lies the question: who, if anyone, will stop Iran before it goes nuclear, and how? As Washington and Jerusalem study each other intensely, here’s an inside look at the strategic calculations on both sides—and at how, if things remain on the current course, an Israeli air strike will unfold.
    It is not as if America and Israel have nOT seen the handwriting on the wall the past five years.

Nevada Democrat Senator Harry Reid in Nevada yesterday

Remember it was Harry Reid who dllcared the Iraq War was lost before the Bush/Petraeus SURGE. So, like Vice President Joe Biden, Reid puts his foot in his mouth again.
While campaigning in Nevada Tuesday, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid told an audience of mostly Hispanic voters: “I don’t know how anyone of Hispanic heritage could be a Republican, okay. Do I need to say more?”

Reid’s racially-charged comments come as the Nevada Democrat is
trying to boost Hispanic turnout in his bid for reelection this
November. Polls show, however, that Reid’s positions on immigration are
very unpopular with Nevada voters in general. Reid supports the Obama administration’s lawsuit against Arizona over its immigration law, but 63 percent of Nevada voters oppose the lawsuit, according to a Rasmussen poll.

Reid voted against a measure to complete a 700-mile fence along the Mexican border in May, but 68 percent of voters nationally support building a border fence, according to Rasmussen.

Now, GOP Senate challenger Sharron Angle will be running even MORE ads against the vulnerable Senate Majority Leader and highlighting his unpopular stance on illegal immigration. And, how many white, particularly Mormon voters did Reid turn off by playing the race card?

The television spots are being produced as this is posted – count on it.

The statement form the Angle campaign:

“Reid has said he’ll do more if re-elected–apparently that means more insensitive racial comments, more gaffes, more lame attempts to distract from what he has done to destroy the Nevada economy. With that said, I suppose Nevadans should just be glad he didn’t say anything racist about Hispanic people’s skin tone or ‘dialect’ this time.”

Also, I wonder how this will affect Harry Reid’s son, Rory’s campaign for Nevada governor? Rory Reid’s opponent is Brian Sandoval who is a Hispanic Republican, who, by the way, is leading in the polls.


But, true to form, Harry Reid is trying to spin his way out of the GAFFE.

Good luck with that……

The FAR LEFT or the Progressives as they now like to be called are always a disgruntled lot. So, NOW they are unhappy with Obama and Robert Gibbs calls them out on it.

Pretty standard.

Remember when the LEFT turned on LBJ during the Vietnam war and forced him out of the re-election race? Richard Nixon later won the Presidency.

Remember when Senator Teddy Kennedy challenged a weakened President Jimmy Carter, but lost? However, so did Carter lose to Ronald Reagan.

The GOP can ONLY hope this internal discord continues.

So, do President Sarah Palin/Mitt Romney.
