Jeb Bush Says He Will Make a Decision of Presidential Run by End of Year and Illegal Immigrants Who Come to US in an “Act of Love” Deserve to Get Amnesty
To borrow Nancy Reagan’s anti-drug slogan of the 1980′s and apply it to Jeb Bush’s thoughts on running for president … “JUST SAY NO”!!!
Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush says he will make a decision on a 2016 presidential run by the end of the year. Oh boy, I can’t wait. Let me just say that if the GOP wants to lose another election with a candidate along the lines of John McCain and Mitt Romney, then by all means have the elitist, establishment Republican party get behind Jeb. Let alone, we do not need another Bush as president. Just like we do not need another Clinton. It would appear that Instapundit and I agree! I think out of the 300 million people in the United States we can elect a president whose last name does not begin with Bush or Clinton.
Why do we not need a RINO like Jeb Bush as a GOP candidate? We need to look no further than his statement on Sunday that illegal immigrants who come to the United States as an “act out of love” for their families deserve to be treated differently than others who illegally cross U.S. borders or overstay visas. This is obviously code for, they deserve amnesty. I wonder if Jeb feels the same if an individual robs a bank, store or someone’s home out of love for their family or sells drugs is also the same?
A note to Jeb Bush … ILLEGAL IS ILLEGAL!!! This is exactly the reason why so many have lost faith in establishment, limousine Republicans.
Former Florida governor Jeb Bush said Sunday that many who illegally come to the United States do so out of an “act of love” for their families and should be treated differently than people who illegally cross U.S. borders or overstay visas.
Asked about immigration, Bush started by saying that a bipartisan bill passed by the Senate last year made “a good effort” at proposing ways to ensure that people overstaying visas leave the country.
“A great country ought to know where those folks are and politely ask them to leave,” he said, adding later that properly targeting people who overstay visas “would restore people’s confidence” in the nation’s immigration system.
“There are means by which we can control our border better than we have. And there should be penalties for breaking the law,” he added. “But the way I look at this — and I’m going to say this, and it’ll be on tape and so be it. The way I look at this is someone who comes to our country because they couldn’t come legally, they come to our country because their families — the dad who loved their children — was worried that their children didn’t have food on the table. And they wanted to make sure their family was intact, and they crossed the border because they had no other means to work to be able to provide for their family. Yes, they broke the law, but it’s not a felony. It’s an act of love. It’s an act of commitment to your family. I honestly think that that is a different kind of crime that there should be a price paid, but it shouldn’t rile people up that people are actually coming to this country to provide for their families.”
So Jeb, why have any immigration policy if you think that the United States is just one big welfare state meant to help others in other countries, rather than its own citizens? Jeb Bush does realize that an immigration policy is meant to protect the survival of a country by allowing individuals with talent and skills to strengthen a country, not to let anyone one in who is going to be nothing more than a burden on society.
Just Criminal: Obama Administration Refuse to Enforce Immigrations Laws … ICE Released 68,000 Illegal Immigrants with Criminal Convictions
How is it that Obamacare is the law of the land, yet Barack Obama refuses to enforce current immigration laws?
UNREAL … This is how the Obama administration protects the citizens of the United States? You know Barack, the legal ones! As reported at The Hill, in 2013 Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials released 68,000 illegal immigrants with criminal convictions back into the population. Instead of deporting these criminals, the Obama administration released 35% of the illegals with criminal records back into the general population. Barack Obama should be charged with a crime for this.
Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials last year released 68,000 illegal immigrants with criminal convictions, undercutting Democratic claims that President Obama has strictly enforced immigration laws.
An internal Department of Homeland Security document compiling statistics on arrests and deportations in 2013 showed that ICE agents encountered 193,357 illegal immigrants with criminal convictions but issued charging documents for only 125,478. More than 67,800 were released.
The data came from an end-of-year “Weekly Departures and Detention Report.”
The Center for Immigration Studies, a research group that favors stricter enforcement of immigration laws, estimates ICE agents released more than a third of illegal immigrants with criminal records they detained.
“ICE released 68,000 criminal aliens in 2013, or 35 percent of the criminal aliens encountered by officers.
As Breitbart further points out, this report comes out on the heels of a report from the office of Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) last week which found that only .08 percent of the aliens deported in 2013 were not serial immigration law violators or convicted of serious crimes.
12 Year Old Illegal Immigrant Arrested for Attempting to Smuggling 80 Pounds of Marijuana from Mexico into Texas … Just More DREAM’ers
Yup, they only want to do the jobs that Americans don’t want to do, make their lives better and especially the innocent children, they just want an American education …
Hmm, one would think that this story may want people to rethink amnesty. The US Border Patrol arrested six Mexicans, two adults, two 17-year-olds, a 16-year-old and the 12-year-old … all illegal immigrants attempting to smuggle marijuana into the United States. In all, they had 300 pounds of pot as the 12 year old
mule boy was carrying the heaviest load at 80 pounds. All were returned to Mexico. It would appear that this would add credence to US Rep; Steve King’s assertion that more illegals are drug smugglers than valedictorians.
The U.S. Border Patrol earlier this month arrested a 12-year-old illegal immigrant smuggling 80 pounds of marijuana from Mexico into Texas, reigniting a debate over controversial comments made by a Republican congressman earlier this year about children’s involvement in the cross-border drug trade.
Rep. Steve King, an Iowa Republican who has called for a crackdown on illegal immigration, had said there were more young illegal immigrants smuggling drugs than there were ones who were valedictorians of their classes in U.S. high schools.
In the Texas incident earlier this month, Border Patrol agents arrested six Mexicans — two adults, two 17-year-olds, a 16-year-old and the 12-year-old — smuggling more than 300 pounds of marijuana.
“They were carrying the marijuana on their backs and when arrested it was discovered that the 12-year-old boy had the heaviest load at 80 pounds,” the Border Patrol said in a statement describing the arrest.
The adults and one of the 17-year-old children were held after the early December incident, but the others — including the 12-year-old — were returned to Mexico, the Border Patrol said.
All returned to Mexico, why didn’t Obama and the Democrats provide them amnesty? There was no mention if any of the illegals caught and arrested were “white” Hispanics.
Kanye West Compares Himself to Police Officers and Soldiers … “I’m Giving my Body on the Stage. I’m Putting my Life at Risk, This is Like Being a Police Officer, or Like War”
WE MIGHT JUST HAVE A WINNER FOR IDIOT OF THE YEAR …
Barack Obama may have the hands down lie of the year; however, rapper Kanye West has maybe the most ignorant, dumb a$$ comment of the year. Both seem to be so out of touch with reality. However, what is it that they have the most in common … narcissism.
Kanye West, rapper, clown, delusional, entitled rich person who lives in another reality, actually had the nerve and audacity to compare what he does to that of police officers and soldiers. Yep, I kid you not. West said in an interview in an interview on US radio program Saturday Night Online on the weekend, “I’m giving my body on the stage, I’m putting my life at risk. This is like being a police officer, or like war. You’re going out to do your job every day, knowing that something could happen to you. “You know, like verbally from the press bashing you. Or you could actually slip on the stage.”
WTF … First of all let me say, being an egotist, over-payed, no talent, self-centered delusion singer has nothing in common with being a police officer or US soldier, who put their lives in danger every day to protect our freedoms. As a matter of fact they risk their lives to give individuals to make dumb ass comments like you just did. The police and soldiers are heroes, you are a zero. This fool is actually comparing being verbally attacked by the media or slipping on stage to police putting themselves into unknown situations every time they pull a car over, every time the enter a home or when they knowingly must deal with murderers, rapists and drug cartels. And dare compare to our military soldiers in harms way and battling terrorists, bullets, bombs and IED’s? IDIOT!
Rapper Kanye West is once again courting controversy, this time by comparing the risks he takes on stage every night to those taken by soldiers and police officers performing their duties.
Unlike a hoax in which Kanye supposedly compared himself to the late Nelson Mandela that went viral across social media, Kanye actually made these comments.
“I’m giving my body on the stage, I’m putting my life at risk,” the hip hop megastar and new father said of performing on his Yeezus tour.
“This is like being a police officer, or like war. You’re going out to do your job every day, knowing that something could happen to you.
“You know, like verbally from the press bashing you,” he elaborated, in an interview on US radio program Saturday Night Online on the weekend. “Or you could actually slip on the stage.”
I have always believed that everyone served a purpose in life, some are put on this earth to be a bad example. However, I may have to make Kanye West an exception. There are only so many ignorant things one can say before you are considered completely irrelevant. In other important Kanye West news, Kim Kardashian has blond hair.
I would love to get the take of our own Dana Pretzer of Scared Monkeys Radio, who when he is not doing fantastic interviews discussing missing persons and true crime on The Dana Pretzer Show with guest like Clint Van Zandt, Diane Dimond, Robin Sax, Pat Brown, Wendy Murphy and many, many more like our own Blink from Blink on Crime , he is doing his real job as a police officer in Canada.
ATF Tries to Block Whistleblowing Book on Fast and Furious by Special Agent John Dodson Citing It Would Hurt Morale
Obviously the ATF has never heard of the First Amendment to the US Constitution …
The Washington Times is reporting that the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) is blocking”whistleblower” special agent John Dodson from publishing a book on the ‘Fast & Furious’ government gun walking scandal. The ATF is claiming that the book would hurt moral in the agency. Really, that’s your reason? The First Amendment is being shredded because the ATF is worried about morale? It is more likely that Attorney General Eric Holder and President Barack Obama are more worried about the information that will come out that will be embarrassing to them. With all the scandals plaguing the Obama White House, Obama does not want to have to revisit this not-so “phony” scandal.
The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives is blocking the main whistleblower in the Fast and Furious case from publishing a book, claiming his retelling of the Mexico “gun-walking” scandal will hurt morale inside the embattled law enforcement agency, according to documents obtained by The Washington Times.
ATF’s dispute with Special Agent John Dodson is setting up a First Amendment showdown that is poised to bring together liberal groups like the American Civil Liberties Union and conservatives in Congress who have championed Mr. Dodson’s protection as a whistleblower.
The ACLU is slated to become involved in the case Monday, informing ATF it is representing Mr. Dodson and filing a formal protest to the decision to reject his request to publish the already written book, sources told The Times, speaking only on the condition of anonymity.
The Fast & Furious gun walking program during the Obama presidency has lead to the death of border agent Brian Terry and allowed the guns into Mexico where they were responsible for countless number of murders.
The ACLU charged that the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives is worried that the book proposed by an ATF agent would hurt relationships with other U.S. law enforcement agencies.
In a six-page letter to ATF Deputy Director Thomas Brandon, the ACLU said the bureau’s decision to block the book proposed by Special Agent John Dodson was a violation of his First Amendment rights. The ACLU described Dodson as a whistle-blower.
According to the letter, the ATF denied Dodson’s request to try to publish a book about his version of the Fast and Furious scandal because the bureau predicted it would have “a negative impact on morale in the Phoenix (Field Division) and would have a detrimental” impact on ATF relationships with the FBI and the Drug Enforcement Administration.

Donald Trump Warns GOP at Family Leadership Summit in Iowa … Immigration Bill (Amnesty) “Could Be a Death Wish’ for Republican Party”
Does it really take Donald Trump to state the obvious for Republicans to get a clue? Obviously, it does.
Donald Trump spoke at the Family Leadership Summit in Ames, Iowa on Saturday and warned the GOP of the dangers of passing immigration reform. The event was organized by The Family Leader, a Christian conservative organization. Donald Trump warned the GOP that the proposed immigration bill will be a “death wish” for the Republican Party. Trump went on to say that border security is a must. The Donald is correct. For anyone, especially Republicans, who thinks that the 11 to 15 million illegals in the United States are going to vote for the GOP, you are delusional. For any one who thinks at the illegals will be tax payers are delusional as well. We already have a bout 50% of Americans who do not pay federal income taxes, what category do you think illegals will fall? Let alone the additional subsidies, welfare, food stamps and other entitlement programs. We cannot afford the current welfare state, how are we going to be able to afford the one with 11+ million more illegals and the rest that pour over the border that a government refuses to protect?
Donald Trump on Saturday made his first-ever political visit to Iowa, speaking to conservative Christians, stoking speculation about his political plans and labeling the United States a “laughingstock” during an interview with NBC News.
He warned the Family Leadership Summit in an evening speech that Republicans will have a “really tough” time in the 2016 presidential race if Hillary Clinton runs. He said the Senate’s immigration bill “could be a death wish” for the Republican Party but insisted the GOP has to do “the right thing.” And he bragged about buying the old Post Office building in Washington: “You have the White House, you have Congress and I’m building right in the middle!”
Hat Tip Video – The Gateway Pundit
“People come in illegal. You need border security. It all starts. Either you have a country or you don’t. It’s very simple. You either have a country or you don’t. And having a country starts with security at your borders … Now, when it comes to immigration you have to do the right thing. You have to. In your own heart you’re dealing with lives, you’re dealing with human beings. You have to do the right thing. But it’s gotta be done in a very smart and methodical method. The Republicans, let’s say, I hear 11 million illegals. Well, I hear the number could be much higher than that. If you do something where they get a vote just remember, and I think I was the first one to say it. I don’t know if you remember, I said this a long time ago when it first came up. Every one of those people, virtually, will be voting Democratic. Do what’s right but be careful. It could be a death wish for the Republican Party.”
Amnesty for illegals will not only be the death of the Republican party, it will be the death of the United States as we know it. Imagine this, we already have an unsustainable welfare states, now we are going to add another 11 million to it and make matters worse? The point of a responsible immigration policy is to let the right people in to sustain the country, not add 90% low income workers just because the entered our country illegally and broke our laws.
Imagine allowing 11 million new Democrat voters into America who become part of the “what can the government give me” class. How could the GOP ever win another election?
Unreal … Two Border Patrol Agents Convicted Friday in Federal Court in Tucson, AZ of Violating the Civil Rights of 4 Mexican Drug Smugglers
ARE YOU KIDDING ME … WHAT HAPPENED TO THE AMERICA I GRE UP IN?
As reported at the Arizona Daily Star, two border agents were convicted on Friday by a jury in Federal court in Tucson, AZ of violating the civil rights of four drug smugglers. Yes, you heard that correct. Let me repeat this, two border agents were convicted of violating the civil rights of four Mexican drug smugglers. WTF is going on in this country!!! Seriously, the US government fails to protect the borders from illegal immigrants and drug smugglers from entering into our country, but we prosecute the very agents who do? We are not allowed to call these people illegals, but we allow Mexican drug smugglers to have civil rights. Not only are they in the United States illegally, they are in it with illegal drugs with the intention of selling such illegal substances. But they got civil rights. Unreal.
25 year old Dario Castillo and 31 year old Ramon Zuniga were convicted on four counts of “civil-rights deprivation under color of law”. Here is a rather interesting part od the case and prosecution, even though there were more agents at the scene, only Zuniga and Castillo committed the civil-rights violations. Hmm? Does anyone else just find this all a bit whacked, seeing that we have a federal policy of not going after illegals and a push to not even call them illegals? So what would these folks have been considered … undocumented, not legal substance carrying, lost in the desert individuals?
After deliberating most of the morning, about 3 p.m. the jury convicted Dario Castillo, 25, and Ramon Zuniga, 31, of four counts of civil-rights deprivation under color of law. Rather than arrest four Mexican smugglers intercepted the night of Nov. 12, 2008, the agents made them strip off their socks, shoes and jackets, forced some of them to eat marijuana and ordered them to flee into the desert.
The convictions are misdemeanors for Zuniga, but felonies for Castillo because the jury found he set fire to the smugglers’ belongings.
The agents were found not guilty of a conspiracy charge.
Castillo was also found not guilty of tampering with a witness, the most serious charge.
A felony conviction for deprivation of rights under color of law carries a maximum penalty of 10 years and/or a $250,000 fine; a misdemeanor conviction under the statute carries a penalty of one year and/or a $100,000 fine.
U.S. Attorney for Arizona John Leonardo said in a written statement,”This verdict sends a clear message that abuse of authority by federal law enforcement officers will not be tolerated in our society.” Really, I take it in another way. No one believes in civil rights for Americans more than I; however, I in no way believe they should be afforded to people in my country illegally and committing crimes. Who finds this a bit offensive when we have a U.S. government, Republican, Democrat & Independent alike, who every day try to strip away out US Constitutional and Civil rights, yet Mexican drug smugglers are protected? Our government is trying to strip away our Second Amendment right to bare arms, yet these people have a right to be in our country illegally with illegal drugs and have civil rights. What has happened to the America I grew up in?
Look for the
Union Mexico label …
From CNS News comes the following bad joke, the border patrol agents that prevent Mexicans from coming into the United States are made in, wait for it, wait for it … MEXICO. You just can’t make this stuff up.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has granted uniform contracts to VF Imagewear, Inc., an apparel company that relies on manufacturing sites in Mexico for a “significant percentage” of its occupational garments.
The latest contract with the company was awarded on Dec. 20, 2012, to make “uniform and insignia items” for the CBP at an estimated cost of $6,157,997.57, and a ceiling of $8 million.
The CBP, which is responsible for protecting America’s borders, told CNSNews.com that items from VF Imagewear, a subsidiary of VF Corporation, are manufactured in a number of locations, “including Mexico.”
One US Border Agent Shot Dead, Second Injured in Shooting Near Naco, AZ at Brian Terry Station, A Known Drug Corridor
BREAKING … As reported at Fox News, two US Border agents have been shot near Naco, AZ, a known drug smuggling corridor. One US Border agent has been killed, the other injured. The names of the Border Patrol agents have not been released. The shooting occurred at the Brian Terry Station near Naco, AZ, which is just south of Tucson.
Two U.S. Border Patrol agents were shot, one fatally, Tuesday morning in an area south Arizona known as a major drug-smuggling corridor, authorities said.
The identities of the agents were not immediately released, but the shooting occurred at the Brian Terry Station near Naco, Ariz., which is just south of Tucson. The station was named after an agent who was killed in the line of duty in December 2010.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to the slain border patrols family, friends and loved ones.
Just a couple of days after Univision released a video and showed a connection between the Fast & Furious gun walking program and the deaths and massacre of Mexican teens at the hands of drug cartels, we have this.
UPDATE I: The injured agent has been airlifted to the hospital,” Crystal Amarillas, a spokeswoman for the U.S. Border Patrol in Tuscon, said in a statement to KVOA.com.
