Democrats to oppose Koch brothers, just not where they agree with the Democrats - 03/05/14

... progressive politics... ...Senator Harry Reid of Nevada, the majority leader, foreshadowed the campaign by taking to the Senate floor on Tuesday — an unusual move — for the second time in two weeks to accuse the Koch brothers of unfairly meddling in the political system by helping to pump more than $30 million dollars so far in television advertising and other activities into the most...

Guy Benson, Ace Mu Nu can't figure things out (Harry Reid, Romney) - 08/05/12

... Benson of Townhall. Discussing Harry Reid's claim that Mitt Romney hasn't paid taxes for 10 years - a claim Reid can't back up with any evidence - Benson says ( peekURL.com/zCSZnPt ): How does one effectively combat an opponent with no shame, no decency, and not even a tenuous commitment to the truth? One option is to take the high road, fight the smears, and continue to push your message. For...

First of all, you control the border. We can ask the National Guard to go to Iraq. We ask the National Guard to go to Kuwait. We ask the National Guard to go to Afghanistan.

NCLR letter for DREAM Act misleads (Richardson, Villaraigosa, Linda Chavez, Lionel Sosa) - 12/16/10

... an open letter [1] to senators Harry Reid and Mitch McConnell urging them to pass the anti-American DREAM Act. That bill would let the illegal aliens covered by it take college resources from Americans: it would deprive some Americans of college educations. And, the NCLR's letter is misleading and signed by a small grab bag of very questionable people. It starts: As Latino leaders in government...

Community college budgets cut across U.S. & many turned away even as some want to give college slots to illegal aliens - 11/27/10

... away from community colleges, Harry Reid wants to give limited college resources to foreign citizens who are here illegally with the DREAM Act. In fact, those who'll probably complain the loudest about this situation will likely be DREAM Act supporters; they live in a fantasy world where we have enough college resources for both citizens and for illegal aliens. On the other hand, making cuts...

No, Sharron Angle isn't calling Social Security "wicked" (Harry Reid is lying) - 10/28/10

[See the update: Harry Reid is lying about Angle's comments] The Democratic Party's "Accountability Project" uploaded [1] the audio below, apparently trying to make people think that Sharron Angle is calling Social Security and similar programs "wicked". In fact, she's not calling those programs "wicked". What she considers wicked are those who turn their backs on the least among them, relying on...

Fact Check: Harry Reid, Sharron Angle, and the anti-American DREAM Act - 10/06/10

Harry Reid has responded to Sharron Angle's new immigration ad that includes a segment about the anti-American DREAM Act, and he's misleading about the features of that anti-American bill. The Angle ad is here, the Reid response is here, and the text of the Act is at [1] 1. What Reid gets partly right is calling Angle on the part of her ad that says, "Now, Reid has introduced a plan that gives...

Andrea Nill not exactly honest about DREAM Act (Sharron Angle ad) - 10/06/10

Sharron Angle finally attacks Reid over anti-American DREAM Act - 10/05/10

... new Sharron Angle ad attacking Harry Reid for pushing the anti-American DREAM Act, a bill that would let illegal aliens take college educations away from Americans. Contrast this new ad with her previous approach to the issue (which was followed by a general denunciation of amnesty). Since the time of that last post, I've tweeted her and her advisors repeatedly suggesting that they make the same...

Comprehensive Immigration Reform Act of 2010: Robert Menendez' amnesty - 09/30/10

... was also part of the earlier Harry Reid amnesty. 7. The H-2C guest workers program, of course, pretends that employers have to first offer jobs to citizens; most of those employers would do that in a bad faith fashion. Not only that, but "guests" could adjust their status to Lawful Permanent Resident either after four years (if they petition themselves) or presumably at any time if their...

Sharron Angle is weak on amnesty: won't come out strong against anti-American DREAM Act - 09/18/10

Harry Reid recently announced he'd offer the anti-American DREAM Act amnesty as an amendment to the Defense bill. Now, four days later, the most his opponent Sharron Angle has done in opposition is to appear on Fox News and oppose that anti-American amnesty from procedural grounds. Not only that, but she seems to be adopting an immigration stance that's weaker than her previous comments. She...

Harry Reid to put anti-American DREAM Act in defense bill; contact your representatives - 09/14/10

Senator Harry Reid says [1] he's going to attach the DREAM Act as an amendment to the Defense Authorization Bill, which will apparently be voted on next week. The DREAM Act is openly anti-American: it lets illegal aliens take college educations away from U.S. citizens. See the link for more information. Of course, whether he'll do anything and whether he'll have the votes is another matter; he...

Sam Stein misleads about Sharron Angle (unemployment insurance "really doesn't benefit anyone") - 09/03/10

... and [Senate Majority Leader] Harry Reid want to do is put a band-aid on this by extending unemployment, which really doesn't benefit anyone. What happens is of course that your skills stagnate. You become demoralized yourself, you know, feeling that I can't ever get a job, and these are not the solutions to the problem. We have real solutions, but they won't look at the real solutions." It...

Did Sharron Angle oppose Katrina aid? (+a Harry Reid surprise) - 08/30/10

... video also has a surprise about Harry Reid at the end. It's not clear exactly what she supported: did she just want to make sure that the government wasn't going to waste $62 billion on a state renowned for corruption? Or, was she taking a short-sighted, borderline-sociopathic libertarian position and wanted to spend as little money as possible no matter the long-term costs to the country? In...

Ask Harry Reid about his strong immigration bill from 1993 - 08/13/10

... immigration bill introduced by Harry Reid - a bill that would make both me and Tom Tancredo proud - is in the news again due to its birthright citizenship provisions. Calling "flip-flop" isn't as effective as discussing actual policies. So, if you want to do a public service, ask Reid about that bill at one of his public appearances and then upload video of his response to video sharing sites;...

Harry Reid's strong 1993 immigration bill would have blocked "anchor babies" - 08/13/10

In 1993, Harry Reid introduced a strong anti-illegal immigration bill that would have also reduced legal immigration (also see). Then, in 2006, he offered an "unusual, rambling confession" apologizing for the bill. Just recently, he's criticized Sharron Angle for wanting to prevent illegal alien parents from taking advantage of birthright citizenship. As it turns out, his 1993 bill included the...

2006: Harry Reid apologizes for 1993's strong immigration bill in "unusual, rambling confession" - 08/13/10

... QUESTION] On August 5, 1993, Harry Reid introduced the "Immigration Stabilization Act of 1993", an anti-illegal immigration bill that would also have greatly reduced legal immigration. It would have made Tom Tancredo (and me) proud. Flash forward to 2006 (link) where Reid apologized for the bill, no doubt because he thought it was in his best political interests:

Harry Reid's skin tone fallacy; can't see how Hispanics could be Republicans - 08/11/10

It's a shame that Harry Reid's opponent is a tea parties type like Sharron Angle. A more mainstream opponent who's willing to highlight immigration issues might have something productive to say about these recent Reid remarks about how he can't find Republicans to support comprehensive immigration reform (link): "I don't know how anyone of Hispanic heritage could be a Republican, OK," Reid said,...

Sharron Angle goes after Reid on issues outside his control, won't press hard on immigration - 07/23/10

... Sharron Angle in which she says: "Harry Reid says he does more for Nevada... He's done more for unemployment... He's done more for the foreclosure rate... Harry Reid has done more and it's time for us to say 'stop doing it', we can't stand any more." That's stupidity in the tea parties style: unemployment and housing market issues are national issues. If we had replaced Reid with Angle a year...

Confronted, Harry Reid claims illegal aliens aren't working construction jobs (note: in Nevada, maybe on stimulus projects) - 07/13/10

... at peekURL.com/vvjwb7a shows Harry Reid being confronted about not allowing a vote last year that would have required construction companies hiring in regards to the stimulus plan to use the eVerify system. Reid then seems to make the outrageous claim that no illegal aliens are working construction jobs in Nevada [1], and that's the way it's being presented by HotAir [2] and by the low-wattage "...

More proof Justin Elliott isn't credible (Sharron Angle, public health concerns over fluoride) - 06/09/10

... the Republican primary against Harry Reid yesterday, and as could be expected Democratic Party proxies are already beginning their attack. One of those is Justin Elliot of TalkingPointsMemo, who offers "FLASHBACK: GOPer Angle Spoke Out Against Fluoride In Water Supply" [2]. It's a low-grade attempt to provoke a conditioned response that most people have: when someone says something against...

How D.C. Douglas helps Freedomworks and Teaparty - 05/18/10

One of the reasons why there's still a tea parties movement is because their loudest opposition is a match for them when it comes to incompetence. The latest example of that opposition's incompetence comes from D.C. Douglas ("DCD"), the voiceover actor who was fired by GEICO Insurance after he left a voicemail for FreedomWorks ("FW").

Millions unemployed, Harry Reid wants several million new legal workers to compete against Americans (fairly) - 05/11/10

Harry Reid offers "Our immigration system is broken, and only bipartisan work will fix it" (link). If you've already read a few editorials in support of comprehensive immigration reform, everything he says will be very familiar, right down to his use of trite talking points like system is broken, secure the border, immigration line, and the (more rare) immigration wage floor. However, American...

Reid-Schumer-Menendez immigration plan: biometric IDs and amnesty with border enforcement as bait - 04/29/10

Sens. Harry Reid, Charles Schumer, and Bob Menendez have released the outlines of their own comprehensive immigration reform plan; a PDF is available here. The first, tough-talking part deals with increased border security; see this for some of the ways it's misleading. After having increased border security, an amnesty will be enacted.

Harry Reid: "We're going to do immigration reform just like we did health care reform"; vile Durbin confused about citizenship - 04/11/10

... across the U.S., with U.S. Sens. Harry Reid appearing at the event in Las Vegas and Dick Durbin at the one in Chicago. At the one in Vegas, Reid said (link): "We're going to do immigration reform just like we did health care reform." One of the things I worry about is that he just might be right. The possible opposition is largely incompetent and is led by those with a loose borders agenda. It...

March for America: illegal immigration rally, March 21, 2010 Washington DC - 02/12/10

On March 21, 2010, yet another pro-illegal immigration march will be held in Washington DC, this sponsored ultimately by the far-left National Council of Churches [1]. The next day they'll apparently be conducting a lobbying effort, sending attendees to speak to their representatives (presumably illegal aliens will take a pass on that event). The march is associated with Ecumenical Advocacy Days...

"Death panels" in health care bill can't be repealed; ACORN and others can get funding - 12/22/09

... repealed per language inserted by Harry Reid (link). The subsection about the "Independent Medicare Advisory Board" says: it shall not be in order in the senate or the house of representatives to consider any bill, resolution, amendment, or conference report that would repeal or otherwise change this subsection. According to an update however, it could be effectively repealed by refusing to fund...

Harry Reid doesn't want illegal immigration, ACORN provisions in unemployment extension bill - 10/26/09

... illegal immigration and ACORN, but Harry Reid - not surprisingly - does not (link): McConnell is insisting on consideration of an amendment to prevent ACORN from receiving federal funds, and another designed to filter illegal immigrants out of the workforce. The Kentucky Republican said the eight amendments Republicans are offering won’t take much longer to consider than the six provisions Reid...

Harry Reid says there are enough Senate votes for immigration "reform"; offers deportation false choice - 06/15/09

Maria Pena of EFE - the Spanish news agency behind a 2006 smear - offers "Senate Leader Says Immigration Reform Possible This Year" [1]: He added that although (comprehensive immigration reform) does not have the backing of all Democrats, the bill will overcome the obstacles that stymied the failed 2007 reform. The majority leader said he has "no doubt" he could find as many as a dozen...

Sonia Sotomayor was member of National Council of La Raza from 1998 to 2004 (+Raul Yzaguirre) - 06/05/09

... interesting things. Yesterday, Harry Reid and former NCLR president Raul Yzaguirre spoke at a press conference: "Her ethnicity is a plus, but in no way means she's going to get a pass," said Yzaguirre, who said she was more qualified than others on the Court. "She's going to be scrutinized. She's going to be vetted. We remain assured that she will pass every test that's put in front of her."

Harry Reid says want immigration "reform" this year; NCLR, MALDEF; business-friendly guest worker plan; promotes unrealistic chain migration - 06/04/09

Earlier today, Harry Reid met with MALDEF and the National Council of La Raza, presumably to discuss comprehensive immigration reform. Before or after, speaking to reporters, he said this: "As far as I’m concerned, we have three major issues we have to do this year, if at all possible: No. 1 is healthcare; No 2 is energy, global warming; No. 3 is immigration reform... It’s going to happen this...

What's there now is just a placeholder (link), however the remarks made by Patrick Leahy at introduction show exactly what it is. Those remarks and the list of co-sponsors are below. Note that this is a repeat of how it started in 2007, right down to the bill number. If you...
