- Some NY Republicans are making the case to recruit “The Donald” to run against Andrew Cuomo in next years election
This might be the greatest irony of all times …
Illegal immigrants who have broke the laws of the United States by entering the country illegally are now allowed to practice law in California. Thanks to a bill signed by California Governor Jerry Brown, individuals who have broke the law and should not even legally be allowed to be in the United States are now allowed to practice the very laws in said country. You just can’t make this stuff up.
Illegal immigrants can be licensed to practice law in California under one of eight bills expanding immigrant rights that were signed by Governor Jerry Brown on Saturday.
The California Supreme Court, which finalizes requests of applicants to be licensed as a lawyer in California, is now authorized to approve qualified applicants regardless of their immigration status.
Other new laws prohibit law enforcement officials from detaining immigrants based on federal government instructions except in cases of serious crimes or convictions, and make it illegal for employers to retaliate against workers on the basis of their citizenship.
“While Washington waffles on immigration, California’s forging ahead,” Brown said in a statement. “I’m not waiting.”

South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley at FN Manufacturing … Fires Gun, ‘It was a good stress reliever – and I did it in heels!’
South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley goes to FN Manufacturing in Columbia, SC as she celebrates manufacturing in the Palmetto state. Nikki Haley toured FN Manufacturing in the state capital of Columbia. She has made political hay over luring another gun producer, PTR Industries, from the less gun-friendly state of Connecticut in June.
South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley is known for shooting from the hip. On Friday the Republican politician turned that idiom into a reality during a tour of a gun manufacturing plant, firing ‘quite a few’ guns on an indoor range, including a fully-automatic military machine gun.
Look out Arnold. There’s a new Governor Terminator in town.
‘It was a good time,’ she told reporters after putting holes in several paper targets. ‘It was a good stress reliever – and I did it in heels!’
Forest Howard, Run …. Could we have Dean Scream II?
Former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean, who ran and lost in 2004 to be the Democrat presidential nominee, said that he is open to run for president in 2016. BRING IT!!! Could Howard Dean make life miserable for Hillary Clinton in 2016? Clinton seems to be the already coronated, presumptive Democrat presidential nominee. Of course we heard that same story in 2008. As for Howard Dean, he would run LEFT of Hillary Clinton and certainly appeal the far-LEFT part of the Democrat base and possibly pull Clinton further left that she wants to run. Dean stated, “She [Hillary Clinton] is not going to have a pass. There will be other people who will run.” Of course it is still to be seen if the others who run are viable A-list candidates.
Former Vermont governor Howard Dean, who in 2004 lost his bid to become the Democratic presidential nominee, says he’ll consider another run for president in 2016.
Dean — an outspoken liberal — told CNN’s Peter Hamby that he will run if other candidates aren’t addressing the issues that are important to him.
“I am not driven by my own ambition,” Dean said. “What I am driven by is pushing the country in a direction that it desperately needs to be pushed, pushing other politicians who aren’t quite as frank as I am who need to be more candid with the American people about what needs to happen. I am not trying to hedge. It’s a hard job running. It’s really tough. I am doing a lot of things I really enjoy. But you should never say never in this business.”
Democrat Howard Dean Says, ”Everyone Needs to Pay More Taxes, Not Just Rich”
This should be all Republicans need to know to never, and I mean NEVER nominate New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie as GOP presidential candidate.
WHAT A SHOCK. As reported by CNS News, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie is the most-favored Republican recent newsmaker among Democratic respondents. Who could have seen that one coming? You mean RINO Chris Christie, Barack Obama’s best friend and the individual who helped Obama win reelection with his over the top embrace of Obama during the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy? Why wouldn’t Democrats see Christie as the most favorable Republican seeing that he allowed himself to be the useful pawn and photo-op for Obama? As stated at Michelle Malkin, Hillary Clinton’s greatest threat for the Democrat nomination for president might just be Chris Christie.
Obama – Christie Bromance … They are not a political odd couple, they are the same person … Obama and Christie are all about Obama and Christie
According to a newly released Gallup poll, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is the most-favored Republican recent newsmaker and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz is the least-favored–among Democratic respondents. The poll sought to measure the favorable/unfavorable sentiments toward five Republicans Gallup believes may run for president in 2016. Conducted June 1-4. the survey asked: [P]lease say if you have a favorable or unfavorable opinion of these people–or if you have never heard of them.” It then listed New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, Wisconsin Congressman Paul Ryan, Texas Senator Ted Cruz, and Kentucky Senator Rand Paul.
Chris Christie most beloved Republican by Democrats, what is John McCain going to say?
Rhode Island Governor Lincoln Chafee switches Party Affiliation Again, This Time from Independent to Democrat
Changing party affiliation like one changes their underwear … Chafee is a Republican, no Independent, no Democrat … no just a desperate politician.
Rhode Island Gov. Lincoln Chafee is changing party affiliation once again and switching from an independent to the Democrat Party. So Chafee has gone from a Republican to Independent to Democrat. He was never a Republican, Chafee like so many individuals in politics are nothing more than political opportunists who would do, say and change parties to maintain power. But from the Rhode Island Governor who has a job approval rating in the 20′s and who ended Christmas trees, this man will do anything to cling on to power. It’s one thing to change, if your party left you, or one has a true change of political philosophy, it’s quite another to do it for political expedience. This is exactly what is wrong with politics today. There are no statesman, just hangers on who think its their right to hold office. Hopefully, the good people of Rhode Island will toss this disaster out on his can.
Rhode Island Gov. Lincoln Chafee will formally switch his party registration Thursday, abandoning his status as an independent and joining the Democratic Party, the governor’s office told POLITICO.
Chafee quietly informed President Barack Obama of his intention to affiliate as a Democrat after reaching that decision in private, Chafee spokeswoman Christine Hunsinger said. The governor’s office confirmed Chafee’s plans after POLITICO reported that the governor had notified national Democrats that he’d be joining the party.
A former Republican who served with Obama in the Senate, Chafee has struggled with perilously low job approval ratings and faces a difficult reelection fight in 2014
Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal believes that IRS officials responsible for the IRS scandal where the Internal Revenue Service illegally targeted Conservative organizations should go to jail. Jindal will call the matter “simply un-American” and when you take away Americans civil rights and freedoms away, “When you do that, you go to jail.” This is much the same opinion that came out early this week when GOP Speaker of the House John Boehner stated, “My question is who’s going to jail over this scandal.” What are the odds that anyone is going to go to jail over this scandal? Personally, this needs to be investigated like one would the mob. Start with the small fish and threaten to put them away until they keep trading up to see just how high this goes.
Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal will use a Saturday speech to Virginia Republicans to suggest the IRS officials who targeted conservative political organizations for scrutiny be sent to prison.
“You cannot take the freedom of law-abiding Americans, whether you disagree with them or not, and keep your own freedom,” Jindal, a Republican, will tell delegates at the Virginia GOP convention, according to remarks shared with POLITICO. “When you do that, you go to jail.”
Channeling the growing fury on the right over the IRS scandal, Jindal will call the matter “simply un-American.”
But instead of jail time, Sarah Hall Ingram, who served as commissioner of the office responsible for tax-exempt organizations between 2009 and 2012, during the period of time when the IRS targeted Conservative organization was given a bonus and rewarded with heading the IRS department responsible for the implementation of Obamacare.
Former Democrat NM Gov. Bill Richardson Says, Cuban-American Sen. Ted Cruz (TX-R) Shouldn’t Be Defined As a “Hispanic”
More Double Standard, Hypocrisy from the Democrat Party …
So let’s get this straight, former Democratic New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson made himself God and is going to define what is and what is not a Hispanic and this dude has the cojones that Cruz is none civil and rude. REALLY? So because Senator Ted Cruz (TX-R) does not tow the liberal, Democrat party line, he is not a “Hispanic”? Does Richardson actually realize just how ignorant that sounds? So in the Democrat world of plantation politics, or in this case “Hacienda” politics, one has to be a pro-illegal immigration individual in order to be considered a Hispanic. So much for Hispanics having freedom of thought and opinion. How absolutely offensive. Hispanics like Cruz represent a clear and present danger that a voter block that is predominantly Democrat might actually be greater represented by Cruz. Ted Cruz to Hispanics is interchangeable with Sarah Palin for woman and Dr. Benjamin Carson for blacks. Democrats just cannot accept a world where any of their voting blocks may actually have independent thought.
“I’m not a fan. I know [Ted Cruz is] sort of the Republican latest flavor. He’s articulate. He seems to be charismatic, but I don’t like his politics. I think he introduces a measure of incivility in the political process. Insulting people is not the way to go. But I guess he’s a force in the Republican political system, but I’m not a fan.”
ABC News: Do you think he represents most Hispanics with his politics?
“No, no. He’s anti-immigration. Almost every Hispanic in the country wants to see immigration reform. No, I don’t think he should be defined as a Hispanic. He’s a politician from Texas. A conservative state. And I respect Texas’ choice. But what I don’t like is… when you try to get things done, it’s okay to be strong and state your views, your ideology. But I’ve seen him demean the office, be rude to other senators, not be part of, I think, the civility that is really needed in Washington.”
Fast-forward to 2:15 to get to the Ted Cruz comments as the beginning of this VIDEO is a yawner
It is actually reprehensible that a Democrat could think that they could define another because they just happen to not match in lockstep with them. Simply disgusting.
Outrage After Dem Party Leader Insult Nikki Haley’s Indian Heritage … Says They’ll Send GOP Governor Nicki Haley “Back to Wherever the Hell She Came From” (Update: Harpootilan Defends Comment)
Talk about your double standards … Who knew the Democrat Chairman in South Carolina was a “birther”?
Republicans are outraged after South Carolina Democratic Party Chairman Dick Harpootilan’s racist attack against Indian-American Governor Nicki Haley. The SC Democrat Party leader told supports at the Columbia Metropolitan Convention Center is Columbia, SC that they will send “Nikki Haley back to wherever the hell she came from.” Really Mr.Harpootilan, just where exactly is that, Gov. Haley was born in the USA. NikkinHaley was born Nimrata Nikki Randhawa in Bamberg, South Carolina, on January 20, 1972, to an Indian Sikh family. Imagine that, these are the same people who call those who question Barack Obama’s birth certificate and where he was born. Talk about your double standards? Its perfectly ok for Democrats to make racist comments. Where is the MSM outrage? Oh that’s right, Nikki Haley is a Republican.
Conservatives are outraged after a Democrat in South Carolina allegedly insulted Republican Gov. Nikki Haley’s Indian heritage at a party gathering in Columbia on Friday.
The state’s Democratic Party Chairman, Dick Harpootlian, is believed to have said the party will take on the Conservative in the next gubernatorial race and send ‘Nikki Haley back to wherever the hell she came from.’
Gov. Haley was born in the U.S. but her parents are from India.
Yahoo political reporter Chris Moody tweeted on Friday that Mr Harpootlian made the comment, in support of Democrat challenger Vince Sheheen, who has declared he will run for governor.
Please, had any such comment been made against Barack Obama or an individual of color who was a Democrat, everyone in the media, Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson would be crying foul and the race card. Powerline reminds us of the past vicious comments that Harpootilan made against Nikki Haley and was allowed to get away with.
Harpootlian, a longtime Democratic figure who has a history of using harsh rhetoric, made the comments at the party’s Jefferson-Jackson dinner just moments before Vice-President Joe Biden took the stage.
Asked what he meant by comment, Harpootlian wrote in an email: “Lexington County.”
Before being elected governor in 2010, Haley lived in the suburban Columbia county and represented the area in the state House.
As to whether he thought the comment could be seen as touching on her race and parents’ immigrant status, Harpootlian responded: “No, she was born in Bamberg [South Carolina] and lived in Lexington. Anybody implying anything different is attempting to feign insult.”
