RNC's Bush-linked Growth and Opportunity Project: GOP is "scary" to voters, must pass amnesty, Caring Conservatism - 03/18/13

... growth and opportunity for all. 1. George W Bush didn't get 44% of the Hispanic vote, it was more like 40% (link). 2. Regarding "Hispanic Americans were willing to listen to his second sentence", see this. 3. The bit about "self-deportation" is highly deceptive: it doesn't apply to all Hispanics, just to those here illegally no matter where they're from. No one's ever suggested that Hispanic...

George W. Bush Institute on "Growth and Immigration" (Matthew Denhart) - 12/05/12

Yesterday, George W Bush returned to the public eye to promote massive immigration, saying ( peekURL.com/zjd4VCT ): America is a nation of immigrants. Immigrants have helped build the country that we have become, and immigrants can help build a dynamic tomorrow. Not only do immigrants help build our economy, they invigorate our soul. [...] America can be a lawful society and a welcoming society...

Obama "confident" he'll get immigration amnesty in 2013 (will GOP, Teaparty block it?) - 10/24/12

In a previously-off the record interview with the Des Moines Register, Barack Obama had this to say about getting amnesty in 2013 (link): The second thing I’m confident we’ll get done next year is immigration reform. And since this is off the record, I will just be very blunt. Should I win a second term, a big reason I will win a second term is because the Republican nominee and the Republican...

Sarah Jane Glynn of CAP hypes amnesty using studies from Cato, Bush, and the Fed - 07/09/12

... amnesty using studies from the George W Bush-era Whitehouse, an odious libertarian from the Cato Institute (which is linked to the Koch family), and the Federal Reserve. The events are unrelated, but they illustrate yet again that when it comes to immigration there isn't much difference between the left and right elites (and their helpers like Glynn). Both also illustrate that you can't trust...

Marco Rubio, Barack Obama, George Bush, Dick Armey read from same script on immigration - 06/27/12

... four quotes from Marco Rubio, George W Bush, Barack Obama, and Dick Armey of FreedomWorks all explaining away the inevitability of illegal immigration. Try to guess who said which (answers below): 1. "Many people who come here illegally are doing exactly what we would do if we lived in a country where we couldn’t feed our families. If my kids went to sleep hungry every night and my country didn’...

Bush admin was working on North American Union ("integrating" U.S., Canada and Mexico into one community) - 05/06/11

... by Wikileaks) shows that the George W Bush administration was in fact working on a "North American integration" plan and was at least devising a strategy to sell Canada on the plan. The cable was sent by Paul Cellucci - former U.S. Ambassador to Canada - in 2005 (full cable here, via this): See the last two links for more information, and after that you need to take action. There are at least...

Why George W Bush should be shunned - 11/09/10

George W Bush is currently trying to rehabilitate himself and getting help from many rightwing/tea parties-style sources. Here are some of the reasons why he should be shunned now (and why those same sources should have shunned him then but couldn't find their tongues): 1. Lying us into a war that cost $3 trillion. That's *trillion*. (source here). 2. His 2004 guest workers plan was like a...

Pew: illegal immigration inflow fell (Obama not involved; Bush responsible for 5 million; 60% from Mexico; 9.3% of CA's workforce) - 09/04/10

... economic downturn and coincided with George W Bush somewhat ramping up enforcement as part of his attempt to push comprehensive immigration reform. 3. However, the study notes that "Nearly half of unauthorized immigrants living in the country in 2009 - 47%, or 5.2 million people - arrived in 2000 or later." The responsibility for all of those illegal aliens lies with Bush; his proxies from...

2002 DOJ memo: local police have "inherent power" to arrest illegal aliens (Arizona immigration law challenges) - 05/18/10

From this: In the legal battle over Arizona's new immigration law, an ironic subtext has emerged: whether a Bush-era legal opinion complicates a potential Obama administration lawsuit against Arizona. The document, written in 2002 by the Justice Department's Office of Legal Counsel, concluded that state police officers have "inherent power" to arrest undocumented immigrants for violating federal...

Obama admininstration prosecuting illegal aliens at greater rate than Bush admin (up 110% from 2004) - 09/21/09

Daphne Eviatar of the George Soros-funded Washington Independent tizzily offers "Immigration Prosecutions Up 110 Percent From 2004" (washingtonindependent.com/60323/immigration-prosecutions-up-110-percent-from-2004); expect other far-left groups to go ballistic over the fact that the Obama administration is prosecuting illegal aliens in greater numbers than the Bush administration did until about...

I'm proud to have opposed both two major recent U.S. personality cults - 09/02/09

Due to it being played in a classroom in Utah, the creepy, seven month-old pledge video made by a group of B-list celebrities to Barack Obama is making the rounds again. The original video is here, and an answer video I made about it is attached. While the exact circumstances are quite unimportant, Jay Nordlinger and others at National Review are apparently upset about the (original) video....

Obama budget ends SCAAP, just like Bush did (reimburses states for illegal alien incarceration) - 05/08/09

Barack Obama's budget has no funding for SCAAP, the State Criminal Alien Assistance Program. That reimburses states for their cost of incarcerating illegal aliens, and it will supposedly save $400 million. And, not funding that program is something that Bush tried to do in each year of his presidency; Congress rebuffed the previous illegal immigration-supporting president's attempts. That "tango...

"W, The Legacy of George W. Bush" flying off shelves - 01/26/09

If ever a case could be made for book burning, a very strong contender for Exhibit One would be "W, The Legacy of George W. Bush", a new magnum opus from the Washington Times (washingtontimes.com/store/bush). Available for the remarkably high price of $31 after shipping, "this compelling coffee table styled book... is packed with gripping pictures and stories all beautifully presented in this...

Bush commutes sentences for Ramos/Compean (not a pardon) - 01/19/09

George W Bush has commuted the sentences of Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean, who were convicted of having shot a later-convicted drug smuggler in 2005. Note that he did not pardon them, so felony convictions will remain on their records. The exact motivation for this is unclear; Bush could have taken action any time over the last couple of years. Perhaps Bush had a last minute change of heart, or...

Bush: "Republicans don't like immigrants" might be "fair or unfair", but that's their image - 01/12/09

... our beloved quisling president George W Bush stabbed the Republican party in the back even stronger than he has in the past, at least verbally [1]: ...But the party's message has got to be that different points of view are included in the party. And - take, for example, the immigration debate. That's obviously a highly contentious issue. And the problem with the outcome of the initial round of...

Bush pardons man convicted of conspiracy to harbor and transport illegal aliens, but not Ramos and Compean - 12/23/08

President George W Bush today pardoned nineteen people and the full list is here: usdoj.gov/opa/pr/2008/December/08-crm-1148.html Two people not on the list are Border Patrol agents Ramos and Compean; pardoning them would send the wrong message: that our borders have meaning. However, showing exactly where his loyalties lie, one of those pardoned was convicted of conspiracy to harbor and...

Bush smears illegal immigration opponents (12/18/2008 edition) - 12/20/08

... can't-leave-too-soon president George W Bush spoke at the American Enterprise Institute convocation and said [1] the following (via this): ...And I'm a little concerned about the tone of the immigration debate, labeling our party as "anti"-people. It's one thing to say they want the border enforced, and I understand that. But if a group of people think that a political party is against them, it...

Bush to ease H-2A agricultural "guest" worker program; pulls plans from DOL site - 12/11/08

From this: [Pending Bush administration rules would make] controversial changes to the so-called H-2A guest-worker program [that] could cut wages and speed worker recruitment. They also would relax requirements for providing foreign workers with housing and transportation. A Labor Department spokesman said Wednesday night that the final rules would be made public Thursday and published in the...

Kenneth Vogel/Politico smears Jerome Corsi ("Obama Nation" book) - 08/13/08

Jerome Corsi has recently released a book highly critical of BHO called "Obama Nation". Needless to say, the usual suspects are up in arms. But, representing perhaps more the corrupt establishment in general than BHO fans in particular, Kenneth Vogel of The Politico offers the smear piece "Wild theories of 'Obama Nation' author" (politico . com/news/stories/0808/12526.html). Needless to say, many...

SPP North American Leaders Summit April 21, 22 in New Orleans - 04/20/08

The fourth annual "North American Leaders Summit" - part of the Security and Prosperity Partnership started by George Bush - will be held Monday and Tuesday in New Orleans and will be attended by Bush, Felipe Calderon of Mexico, and Stephen Harper of Canada. Expect the news reports about the event to be credulous. Speaking of which, Norma Greenaway of the Canwest News Service/Ottawa Citizen...

Michael Rubinkam/AP offers yet more "crops rotting in the fields" propaganda - 03/24/08

Michael Rubinkam of the Associated Press offers yet another in the long line of "crops rotting in the fields" articles, which are propaganda designed to support an immigration amnesty and/or "guest" worker program. In the current case (link), it concerns the Keith Eckel, owner of Fred W. Eckel Sons Farms Inc. who says he's going to switch from tomatoes to mechanically-harvested corn because he...

John McCain supporters include George Bush and three border state governors - 02/07/08

John McCain has picked up key endorsements from three current and one former border state governors. First up: President Bush plans to give an implicit endorsement of onetime rival John McCain's conservative bona fides tomorrow [at CPAC] as the Arizona senator seeks to consolidate the party behind his candidacy... Bush does not mention McCain by name, but the clear signal of his words to this...

Trans-Texas Corridor to extend south into Mexico - 09/10/07

From this: Official Mexican government reports reveal Mexico has entered discussions with the state of Texas and top officials in the Bush administration to extend the Trans-Texas Corridor into Mexico, with a plan to connect through Monterrey to the deep-water Mexican ports on the Pacific, including Manzanillo and Lazaro Cardenas. The official website of the Mexican northeastern state of...

Bush admin scam: Social Security "no match" letters will have little effect ("tough" new DHS policy) - 08/17/07

This has to be read in its entirety to be believed. The Bush administration can't even keep a scam going for a few days. Days after unveiling a major crackdown on businesses that hire illegal immigrants, the Bush administration is now quietly admitting that its most heavily touted weapon in pursuing employers will be virtually useless. ...But Homeland Security officials acknowledged this week...

White House listening to pork producers, La Raza, Mexico-linked NALEO, NRA... just not you - 06/21/07

The White House offers a PDF entitled "What They're Saying: Border Security And Immigration Reform Agreement" and subtitled 'Business And Agriculture Groups Say "It Is Critical That The Process Moves Forward"' (PDF) [1]. It's just a collection of quotes from press releases from those few groups that support the Bush/Senate massive illegal immigration amnesty, and it contains no accompaning text...

Senate immigration amnesty bill: the supporters - 05/21/07

Outside a number of Senators, there aren't too many who support the Senate's immigration amnesty/"guest" worker plan. This post will keep track of them, and I urge everyone to hold those below accountable whether the bill passes or not. I also urge everyone to keep calling Congress, but, even more importantly, follow the steps previously outlined to help stop amnesty. The supporters: * Of course...

May Day 2007: Peter Prengaman ignores Mexico links - 05/01/07

Peter Prengaman of the AP has a habit of not revealing the material affiliations of those he quotes. The latest instance comes in the much-updated "Protesters Press for Path to Citizenship": ..."If we don't act, then both the Democratic and Republican parties can go back to their comfort zones and do nothing," said Angelica Salas, director of the Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights of Los...

George W. Bush, Raul Grijalva support "comprehensive immigration reform" together - 04/26/07

Yesterday, Bush met with members of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, including former MEChA member Rep. Raul Grijalva (D-AZ), who says: "As much as I malign the president, I thought he was receptive... He was engaged in the conversation, asked questions and continued to make a commitment to comprehensive reform... ...We support [the Flake-Gutierrez STRIVE Act] very strongly, and we support the...

Bush border buggy back Monday in Yuma (fence photo op) - 04/08/07

In May of last year, America's beloved president (George W. Bush) visited Yuma in Arizona to announce "Operation Jump Start", whereby National Guard troops would assist the Border Patrol with their mission. The photo above comes straight out of his scrapbook of his fun vacation. On Monday, he's returning to the border to see how things are going and (possibly on the directive of Mexico City and/...

White House TWP illegal alien amnesty PowerPoint presentation - 03/29/07

U.S. News has uploaded a PowerPoint presentation the White House has regarding their new illegal alien amnesty scheme in this PDF file. Even by the abysmally low standard of other Bush administration plans, this is idiotic. Most of the provisions in there would not appeal to even the most cravenly corrupt Democrat, so this isn't a good bargaining ploy. And, it allows the far-left illegal...

Bush's original "guest" worker scheme revealed - 03/28/07

In this video segment from 2004, Margaret Spellings [1] described how Bush's original "guest" worker scheme would be open to *everyone*, specifically mentioning nurses, teachers, and high-tech workers. In brief, president Bush wanted to open (most of) the U.S. labor market to the world, including (previously) middle-class occupations. Oddly enough, the Democrats completely failed to highlight...

NAU apologists - 11/24/06

[List below updated 12/11/07] Recently, Rep. Tom Tancredo was quoted as saying this: "People have to understand what we're talking about here. The president of the United States is an internationalist... He is going to do what he can to create a place where the idea of America is just that – it's an idea. It's not an actual place defined by borders. I mean this is where this guy is really going...

Are you a "Bush Conservative"? - 11/17/06

"Bush Conservative" is the new, not-nearly-as-pejorative name for what is refered to in the literature as "Bushbotism". One of the chief symptoms of this affliction is a very strong ability to believe strongly in an idea despite massive contradictory evidence: Bush is a down-home Texas cowboy despite being a part of the Northeast liberal elite, Bush has secured or will secure the border despite...

Chris Cannon: few endorsements; SLT for Burridge, his "comprehensive" opponent - 11/02/06

Illegal immigration supporting Representative Chris Cannon (R-UT) - as detailed here dozens of times - is a real piece of work. And, while it's seemed that way in the past, he might finally be on the way out. As described here, the only endorsements he's gotten are from George Bush, his wife, and (unfortunately) Rep. James Sensenbrenner. Utah governor Jon Huntsman and Senator Orrin Hatch (also...

George Bush intentionally misleads about John Kerry Iraq comment - 10/31/06

Speaking in Georgia about an hour ago, president Bush intentionally distorted John Kerry's earlier comments about Iraq. Yesterday, speaking at Pasadena City College, Kerry said this: "You know, education, if you make the most of it, you study hard, you do your homework and you make an effort to be smart, you can do well. If you don't, you get stuck in Iraq." The explanation is that he meant to...

"Bush Buys Land in Northern Paraguay" - 10/17/06

In the past, I've joked about Bush fleeing to some small Latin American country, and I even have a site jokingly suggesting that some people should leave the U.S. (10/16/13: site was PleaseLeaveThe . US, not mine anymore) However, if questionable reports are to be believed, the Bush family might already have an exit strategy planned. From this (also here): Buenos Aires, Oct 13 (Prensa Latina...

"Feds admit failure to stop illegal hiring" - 06/21/06

From link: Washington --- The Bush administration acknowledged Monday the wholesale failure of past efforts to enforce immigration laws in the workplace and warned that a major Senate-passed overhaul fails to provide the necessary tools to fix the problem. ...[Stewart Baker, homeland security undersecretary for policy planning] said the administration wants "to avoid the same mistake" made in...

A traipse through the BushBot blogosphere - 05/24/06

Believe it or not, there are still KoolAid-besotted bloggers out there who believe in Our Leader. One of them is "MacsMind", which was previously featured here giving Bush's critics a piece of his mind: "Shut up whiners" He's back with macsmind.blogspot.com/2006/05/giving-it-up-for-bush-true-american.html: No one is above criticism, yet of all the Presidents of recent history - including...

What did we do to deserve this moron? - 05/18/06

A similar picture is here. [UPDATE: That and the following pics are no longer there; links removed.] A scowling closeup with El Presidente pointing his finger is here. In that shot, his shirt looks vaguely like a guayabera. The following shots have a Border Patrol symbol in the background: middle ground, long, and a side view. UPDATE: While I'm not partial to the source, this photo-op appears to...

Bush uncovered: he doesn't know what country he runs - 04/04/06

The Los Angeles Times' offers a four(!)-screener from Peter Wallsten entitled "Immigrant Issues Are Personal for Bush" (link). I believe the best way to characterize it is as a lame attempt to further divide Bush from his base. The subtext of the article is that the latter are opposed to illegal immigration because - quite unlike Bush - they're opposed to Hispanics or Mexicans. The article...
