Questions about immigration reform for Reihan Salam - 01/24/13

Reihan Salam of National Review discusses Marco Rubio's amnesty and comprehensive immigration reform in general here and here. Here are some questions based on those posts. The reader is urged to ask Salam these questions in comments, on Twitter (@reihan), and at his personal appearances: 1. You say "[Marco Rubio's] approach reflects core conservatives priorities". Here are 10 reasons Marco Rubio...

An example of rightwing blogger incompetence (Tim Scott as a token) - 12/19/12

... peekURL.com/zGZhBvT ) * over at National Review, Andrew Johnson adds nothing ( peekURL.com/zNNSqF6 ) * "Lonely Conservative" adds nothing of interest ( peekURL.com/z3DDewT ) * Clay Waters of Newsbusters adds nothing ( peekURL.com/zATZJQZ ) * AllahPundit of HotAir links to an apparently fair-to-Scott article from a liberal, but basically just describes what those like Reed do to conservatives...

Fiscal conservatives side with America-denouncing billionaire (Cato, Dan Mitchell, Heritage, Brownfield, Sean Medlock, Daily Caller, HotAir) - 05/11/12

... org/blog/what-america-owes-eduardo-saverin). That's discussed here. At National Review, Mario Loyola responds to this and the Schumer-Casey proposal: As for Saverin being “ungrateful” in renouncing his citizenship, he might say the same of the U.S. government. After all, isn’t the U.S. being ungrateful to him by punishing his entrepreneurship? ...Obama’s job-killing regulations and the impending...

Pat Buchanan off MSNBC: Van Jones and elites win; working Americans lose; Teaparty still incompetent - 01/08/12

... Cupp), and a host of people from National Review. Say what you might about them, but each one of them is better than Pat Buchanan. "Represent[ing] modern conservatism"?? Who cares. What I want is someone who represents the interests of most Americans and the two named hacks aren't it. While some at National Review fall on the Americans side when it comes to Americans vs. Globalists, others don't...

Jared Loughner: anti-Bush, pro-small government? Intellectually dishonest Tea Party defenders - 01/17/11

Enablers of the tea parties have, of course, been completely intellectually dishonest when attempting to defend themselves against claims that Jared Loughner is linked to them in one way or another. One example is here, and today's example involves the New York Times piece "Looking Behind the Mug-Shot Grin" (link). Based on the relevant portion of that article [1], Loughner sounds a bit like a...

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

... there so whether someone from National Review asked her about that isn't known. On this issue she isn't that bad, assuming she actually means what she says. The problem is her other issues and the fact that she isn't highlighting immigration. Her fringe, tea parties / libertarians-style policies have 68% of moderates calling her "extremist" (link). What she needs to do is to tone down the...

Kyl: Obama says he won't secure the border without comprehensive immigration reform (UPDATE: backtracks?) - 06/20/10

... UPDATE: Per Robert Costa of the National Review (link): Kyl tells us that the comments [on the video] were “taken a bit out of context,” and that the “they” he was referring to was the Left, “the president’s base,” and not the administration. “I did not try to start a fight. This meeting happened a month ago and we were talking in the context of his political problems. He was talking about how...

DOJ may challenge Arizona immigration law: what to do - 06/18/10

... is offered by Jim Geraghty of National Review (link): there’s little additional harm for the administration in making moves that enrage conservatives, because the conservatives are already enraged, and no matter how enraged they get, they can only vote once. (You’re thinking, “shame there’s no ACORN on our side,” huh?) The independents are probably a lost cause. The only way to mitigate a rough...

Victor Davis Hanson: amnesty fight will be like healthcare (another illustration of incompetence from Obama opponents) - 03/31/10

Victor Davis Hanson of National Review offers "Next Battle: Immigration/What we will - and will not - hear in the upcoming debate over illegal immigration" (link). He's probably right in his assessment that the Obama administration will use the same techniques to get comprehensive immigration reform that they used to get Obama healthcare. That's especially the case since amnesty supporters have...

Obama gives INTERPOL immunity from U.S. law; Constitution doesn't apply; precursor to ICC? - 12/28/09

... U.S. From Andrew McCarthy of National Review (link): Interpol's property and assets are no longer subject to search and confiscation, and its archives are now considered inviolable. This international police force (whose U.S. headquarters is in the Justice Department in Washington) will be unrestrained by the U.S. Constitution and American law while it operates in the United States and affects...

Jim Geraghty, Glenn Reynolds promote anti-intellectualism (10/7/09 edition; Steve Israel townhall) - 10/07/09

... (pajamasmedia.com/instapundit/86351). And, Jim Geraghty of National Review offers "Those Town Halls Are Still Going On" (peekURL.com/zsm7spr), with a link to the Newsday article in an update, including the shouting part. While he doesn't say anything about the excerpt he provides, presumably he approves of shouting down politicians based on his past suggestions. We all know about Instapundit,...

Is Jonah Goldberg now a "Birther"? (in addition to being confused as usual) - 09/11/09

... allies, Jonah Goldberg of the National Review might now qualify as a "Birther". In order not to be a "Birther" - as defined by the aforementioned groups - one must believe to the core of one's being that not only was Barack Obama born in Hawaii, but that he's told the complete truth about his past and he's not trying to cover anything up. Expressing any doubts will not be tolerated; one must...

National Review lies in anti-Birther editorial ("Born in the U.S.A.") - 07/28/09

National Review offers the editorial "Born in the U.S.A." (peekURL.com/zkdwktb) about the Obama citizenship issue. Not only are they aping the title of a deceptive FactCheck page about this issue [1], and not only are they using similar statements to those used by FactCheck, but they're lying almost as badly as FactCheck does. I'll only discuss this part: The Hawaiian birth certificate President...

Jim Geraghty/NRO's idiotic ACORN-style plan (+ his idiotic email reply) - 04/23/09

Last week, Jim Geraghty of National Review's "Campaign Spot" weighed in on where the tea parties should go next and offered the following idiotic, ACORN-style plan (link, bolding added): If 100-1,000 people show up at a rally, the event may or may not get media coverage, and that coverage may or may not be snarky or dismissive. Congressmen may or may not notice, and the President's spokesman will...

HotAir unwittingly shows futility, stupidity, perniciousness of tea parties (Susan Roesgen) - 04/17/09

Allahpundit of HotAir has posted two videos that - completely unwittingly - show just how futile, stupid, and pernicious the tea parties are: link. Both of them feature CNN reporter Susan Roesgen; watch the second first which features her puffball coverage of far-lefties holding a friendly, running protest near Obama's house in Chicago. The first video on the Hot Air page was shot after a live...

Questions for Richard Nadler - 04/03/09

... few sites and most notably at National Review. A recent sample is here. Since I've already read a lot of Tamar Jacoby columns, I haven't bothered reading this year's version so I don't know everything he's discussed. However, if you are and you run into him, perhaps you could ask him one of these immigration questions for Republicans. Then, upload his response to video sharing sites while we...

The "anti-immigration movement" charted! (Bill O'Reilly, Lou Dobbs, Michelle Malkin, Ann Coulter, VDare...) - 05/09/07

... center and right of the chart: National Review, Michelle Malkin, Bill O'Reilly, Ann Coulter, VDare, and Lou Dobbs. In fact, they've put Dobbs perilously close to the right edge, where the "hate groups" live. There are two effective responses to smears like this: 1. Point out factual errors in their reasoning (see the interview link). 2. Discredit those leaders who support illegal immigration. [1...

Ramos/Compean: who's on the Bush administration's side? - 02/08/07

DSCC pro-American 'Secure' video never existed - 08/17/06

Yesterday I noted that the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee removed their "controversial" video 'Secure' from Youtube. Today, it's gone completely. The previous URL was: dscc.org/news/multimedia/20060813_secure/ Now, the video at that page is called "Want A Different Course?" which should be available at this link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=avPRG8s2haU However, that link doesn't work...

Special Order 40: "Jack Dunphy", Daryl Gates, Mike Carona, Police Commission - 01/30/06

The pseudonymous LAPD cop "Jack Dunphy" gives an overview of Los Angeles' sanctuary city policy here: ...Since 1979, when the LAPD enacted Special Order 40, police officers in Los Angeles have been prohibited from taking any action "with the objective of discovering the alien status of a person," and from detaining or arresting anyone based solely on the suspicion that he has illegally entered...

"Boob Bait for Bubba" - 11/29/05

Rich Lowry (link): The late Democratic Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan called it "boob bait for bubba" — tough-sounding rhetoric designed to placate conservative voters. Moynihan applied the phrase to Bill Clinton's 1992 pledge to "end welfare as we know it," which it later became clear that he had no intention of following through on when he became president (eventually, Republicans pressured...

Conservatives somewhat mixed on Bush's inaugural speech - 01/20/05

Jonah Goldberg retreats from his Wilsonian observations back into orthodoxy: ...What conservatives understood then and what President Bush understands now is that America itself is a radical nation, founded on the revolutionary principle that self-government is simultaneously the best form of government and the most moral. And that lovers of liberty in all parties should seek to conserve that...

"Dogmatic Libertarians: Over the edge." - 01/19/05

I already posted this inside another post, but this May 9, 2002 column deserves its own post: ...Near the end of the NRO article Griswold [of the Cato Institute] insists that he is not for "open borders," but his record suggests otherwise. A story in the Christian Science Monitor (August 30, 2000) by Scott Baldauf is particularly revealing. Baldauf describes a new project of the Immigration and...

I coined "transnational progressivism" too - 04/09/03

... their discovery of errors in a National Review article ("Liberate the universities") about something called "transnational progressivism." First, they say there's no such thing as a "transnational progressivism" movement. And, more importantly, they point out that the author mistakenly believes that Princeton University has a law school. As I pointed out in the comments to the post linked above...
