Yes, Virginia, (Dare) People Are Opposing Obama-Rubio Amnesty
Laura Ingraham: Champion for America
In the opinion of our Talk Radio correspondent, Laura Ingraham has emerged as the Patriotic leader in this venue on the Amnesty/Immigration Acceleration Bill.
Today she said the unsayable. Our man’s version
Laura Ingraham: Certain people are bought and paid for. And I would submit that applies to media figures as well.... This [Zuckerberg ad] is playing on a conservative radio show? How much are they dropping on conservative radio shows.... Some of the conservative radio folks have clammed up. Where are they?
Huge money is being spent repeatedly

H/T One Old Vet for drawing my attention to Brit Hume: I wouldn’t be surprised to see Rubio vote against final immigration bill by Jeff Poor The Daily Caller 05/17/2013
Fox News senior political analyst Brit Hume warned Friday that the “Gang of Eight” efforts to pass immigration reform could be in trouble

Proof that Mickey Kaus was right in Kaus: Obama scandals helping The Eight Banditos appeared with surprising speed yesterday in Lerner’s admission of IRS’s inappropriate behavior was pre-planned public disclosure by Alexis Levinson The Daily Caller 5/17/2013
WASHINGTON – Last week, Lois Lerner, head of the tax exempt division of the Internal Revenue Service dropped a bombshell: The IRS had been applying extra scrutiny to conservative groups claiming tax exempt status...
As it turns out, it was not a spontaneous revelation. The question, said outgoing IRS Commissioner Steven Miller in testimony before the House Ways and Means Committee Friday, was planted, as part of a prepared strategy for the IRS to release this information to the public.
The explosion of rage about the politicization of the IRS has all but completely obliterated coverage of the Amnesty/Immigration Acceleration Bill by the Talk Shows and by Drudge. Coverage by the MSM has always been minimal, of course, but they have leapt at the chance to publicize Treason Lobby servants Senators Rubio and Graham posturing as defenders of the people. Patriots need to question the timing.
News that the release was very likely a sophisticated PR stratagem makes John Hinderaker’s calm wisdom
More flop sweat—Politico is starting to worry that the House of Representatives will stop the Amnesty steamroller.
Immigration reform no sure bet, By Seung Min Kim and Jake Sherman, Politico.com, May 17, 2013
After years of false starts, Washington finally appears to be on the path to rewriting the nation’s immigration laws.

At 5-01 AM this morning – several hours after we posted A Talk Radio Listener Provides An Update On Rubio/Zuckerberg/Gang Of Weasels Propaganda; We Dissect It CIS emailed out Rubio’s Deceptive Amnesty Ad By John Feere.
Like all CIS work it is very thorough. Below are my extracts of their responses to Rubio/Zuckerberg’s lies.
- RUBIO: "Anyone who thinks what we have now in immigration is not a problem is fooling themselves. What we have in place today is de facto amnesty."
"Rubio is trying to help President Obama fulfill his campaign goal of keeping all illegal aliens in the country and giving them benefits reserved for legal residents. If Rubio was actually troubled by the de facto amnesty being advanced by the Obama administration, Rubio would side with the ICE officials
Houston Immigration office - H/T Weekly Standard
In an unusual development, Real Clear Politics this afternoon reposted under the (I hope accurate) headline Specter of ’86 Haunts Immigration Debate the powerful Weekly Standard essay by Fred Barnes The Amnesty Next Time which carries the date May 20, 2013.
As I noted in my discussion on Saturday WEEKLY STANDARD (!!!): Gang Bill Too Much Like '86 Amnesty Fiasco the posting that morning was
On Tuesday, Congressman Steve King organized a presser with several House colleagues who strongly oppose the Senate amnesty bill.
The other speakers included Republican Congressmen Louie Gohmert, Mo Brooks, Steve Stockman, John Fleming and Paul Gosar.
Rep. King noted that he has been a fierce foe of Obamacare, but sees the Senate amnesty as “far, far worse.” Like the other assembled representatives, a primary focus of King is to maintain the rule of law, which amnesty shreds by the act of rewarding lawbreakers. His other concerns are cultural assimilation, border control and national security.
Rep Gohmert of Texas (a drought-troubled state) observed that it’s likely a billion or more people abroad would like to move here. He was not reassured that authorities are able to keep out dangerous persons among the millions to be amnestied when the FBI couldn’t sort out the Boston bomber Tsarnaev brother when warned about Tamerlan by Russian police.
John Fleming of Louisiana reminded listeners that the 1986 amnesty was a failure and the government should not go down that path again.
Dr. Paul Gosar of Arizona warned against a huge bill which puts too much enforcement authority in the hands of Janet Napolitano.
Alabama Congressman Mo Brooks alerted about the enormous numbers of foreigners who would like to relocate here, e.g. 20 percent of Mexicans who would come illegally. He doesn’t want millions of lawbreakers to be future Americans, who will also cost taxpayers trillions of dollars according to the recent Heritage study. An open-borders society promotes anarchy, he stated.
Steve Stockman (R-TX) emphasized fairness for legal immigrants, whose care in doing immigration the lawful way is undermined by rewarding lawbreakers.
Congressman King emphasized how the bill is really really bad. He fears a doomsday scenario in which House leadership allows a conference between the House and Senate versions that might pass legislation unfavorable to the rule of law.
Rep. King said, “That conference committee could produce from it some version of the amnesty bill and send it to the floor, unamendable, an up-or-down vote, in which case, every Democrat would vote for it, it would only take a couple of dozen Republicans, and we
Sick Of Congress? Nevertheless, Keep Those Letters And Cards Coming! (Plus: A Bleg To Patriotic Staffers)
The American Immigration Control Foundation used to publish Immigration Watch, their bi-monthly newsletter. The April/May 2002 (yes, 2002, not 2012!) issue included a letter, attributed to "L.S." in "Cyberspace," that seemed instructive and potentially very useful. It's not available online, so now, at this critical time when its usefulness may be highest, I've transcribed it in its entirety. Here you go:
