Jeb BushFormer Florida Governor Jeb Bush is interviewed on Fox News and discusses his new immigration book

These are my links for February 28th through March 5th:

  • Jeb Bush’s False-Flag Operation – Jeb Bush generated quite a bit of publicity for his new book yesterday by suggesting that amnestied illegal immigrants should not be eligible for citizenship. Instead, he’s suggesting they be given some kind of permanent status that would provide them work cards, Social Security numbers, driver’s licenses, and the right to travel abroad and return, but not allow for eventual naturalization — in effect, a kind of permanent guestworker program or a green-card-lite, rather than an actual green card. This is consistent with suggestions from other pro-amnesty Republicans, including Senator Rubio and a group of House members working up an amnesty deal.Unfortunately, it’s a trick.

SHAME ON YOU: Sarah Palin Strikes Back at Ashley Judd and the Defenders of Wildlife Campaign – Part Two

Updated Post:

Ed Morrisey reported back in November how successful the Palin wolf-thinning project is.

During the campaign, some critics of Sarah Palin ridiculed her efforts to thin the wolf population by shooting them from helicopters, painting her as cruel and anti-nature.  The Anchorage Daily News reports that the caribou population might dispute that.  Thanks to the limitation of the predators, the survival rate of young caribou has dramatically increased:

Slaughtering wolves on the Alaska Peninsula appears to have had the desired effect — more caribou got a chance to live, according to biologists with the Alaska Department of Fish and Game.

As ugly and as politically incorrect as the wolf killing might seem to some, they said, the helicopter gunning that took place earlier this year saved caribou, especially young caribou, from being eaten alive.

Fall surveys of the Southern Alaska Peninsula caribou herd completed in October found an average of 39 calves per 100 cows. That’s a dramatic improvement from fall counts of only 1 calf per 100 cows in 2006 and 2007.

From the Eye on Palin Web Site: Exposing Alaska Governor Sarah Palin’s anti-wolf and anti-wildlife agenda

Alaska Governor Sarah Palin responded today to Hollywood Celeb and PDS (Palin Derangement Syndrome) sufferer Ashley Judd’s video above. The video was sponsored by the Defenders of Wildlife Action Fund.

Governor Sarah Palin released the following statement today in response to attacks by the Defenders of Wildlife:

“It is reprehensible and hypocritical that the Defenders of Wildlife would use Alaska and my administration as a fundraising tool to deceive Americans into parting with their hard-earned money.

“The ad campaign by this extreme fringe group, as Alaskans have witnessed over the last several years, distorts the facts about Alaska’s wildlife management programs. Alaskans depend on wildlife for food and cultural practices which can’t be sustained when predators are allowed to decimate moose and caribou populations. Our predator control programs are scientific and successful at protecting vulnerable wildlife. These audacious fundraising attempts misrepresent what goes on in Alaska, and I encourage people to learn the facts about Alaska’s positive record of managing wildlife for abundance.

“Shame on the Defenders of Wildlife for twisting the truth in an effort to raise funds from innocent and hard-pressed Americans struggling with these rough economic times.”

Flap is surprised “The ‘Cuda” didn’t invite Ashley up for a little demonstration of Alaska’s wildlife management program. But, Judd, wouldn’t go anyway because like many LEFT-WING Hollywood types she knows little or nothing about the subject.

Shame on Ashley Judd, indeed.
