Does Scott Walker still have credibility on the issue of immigration?


After telling an NBC reporter unambiguously that he supported ending birthright citizenship, Scott Walker on Friday changed his mind, saying his new position is that he has no position, that he is now undecided again. He's saying that this isn't a reversal, merely that he misspoke because he was tired.

How do you misspeak support for ending birthright citizenship? Look at this video where he is clearly asked whether he would end it, and Walker says, "Yeah, absolutely." No ambiguity there.

This is not a minor, technical issue. This is not a slip of the tongue. Scott Walker was clearly saying last week that he supported ending the mechanism that creates anchor babies. Now he's changed his mind.
Here's his position on the issue for August 21st:

“I’m not taking a position one way or the other,” Walker said in an interview with CNBC’s John Harwood. “I’m saying that until you secure the border and enforce the laws, any discussion about anything else is really looking past the very things we have to do.”

It's doubly hard to believe that this is a slip of the tongue because of Walker's long and tortured history of switching his positions back and forth on illegal immigration, only getting tougher immediately after Donald Trump announces a new position. No politician is going to be perfectly consistent on this issue, but when you look at Scott Walker's total record on this, it's not inspiring.

What does this tell us?

1) At the very least, that six months into the campaign Walker still does not have a clear worldview on what he would do regarding illegal immigration. That's not encouraging.

2) He vacilates back and forth on the most important issues. How can we nominate someone who doesn't seem to have firm values?

3) If he's being honest in that he misspoke, again, then he has a real difficulty articulating his positions clearly, which may disqualify him anyway from being the nominee.

I'm not the only one who has noticed this:

The problem for Governor Walker is that more than anything conservatives are looking for principled leadership on the issues, and being a Johnny-come-lately or staying silent until pressed on every issue from amnesty and illegal immigration, to the DC Republican establishment’s regular betrayal of conservative principles shows Scott Walker to be more like a weathervane following the political winds, than a compass pointing true North on the foundational principles of the conservative agenda.

And lastly, he is a low wattage speaker. He doesn't speak with passion, and maybe that is because, politically, he doesn't have much.

I know Donald Trump has a long history of supporting illegal immigration. Even Ted Cruz, who is greatly superior on the issue, is not perfect. No one is. But they don't seem to vaciliate from day to day quite as frequently as Scott Walker does on such an important, central issue of this campaign.

GOP insiders say Trump needs to stop talking about illegal aliens NOW

In their wisdom they have revealed that Donald Trump is destroying the Republican party by talking tough on illegal immigration.

Liberal Media having trouble finding "Hispanics" opposed to Trump


Please have a little sympathy for the liberal media. They are having trouble writing about the issue of illegal immigration. If they interview Americans, most of them will be against it. They can interview illegal aliens, especially children who sound like they have words put in their mouths , but that kind of propaganda only goes so far. They need to show that Trump is not just against illegals, but against all immigrants, and not just against all immigrants, but all "Hispanics".

Come laugh with us as we read Bush's "Why Jeb?" Flier!


As an attorney, I know never to ask a question in open court unless I already know what the answer will be. Unfortunately, Jeb Bush didn't adhere to that precaution, as one of the Super PAC's supporting him (with the unfortunate Viagra themed name "Right to Rise") produced a flier entitled "Why Jeb?" without giving an answer to the question.
In the postcard on one side we see a very unflattering photo of Jeb with his arms on his hips while he sticks his belly out, in a checkered shirt that makes him look like some kind of accidental tourist. "Why Jeb?" is written in very big letters. On the other side we see a more professional photo of Jeb with his belly hidden behind a podium.

If "Anchor babies" is too incendiary, how about "Anchor Fetuses"?


When the New York Times avoids referring to a term directly in the headline you know it's a forbidden term. For example, when they had the torturous task of writing about partial birth abortions, they didn't have a liberalspeak euphamism for it, so wrote articles with vague titles like "Republicans call for banning a procedure". Now we're seeing this again in an article entitled "Discussing Immigration, Donald Trump and Jeb Bush Use an Offensive Term". The term is so offensive that it couldn't be mentioned in the article.

In the great debate on illegal aliens, we are never asked how Americans feel about the situation or how it affects them. We are never asked how they feel when they are the victims of illegal alien crimes, or when their tax dollars go to pay for illegal alien health care and schooling, or when a job they applied for went to an illegal. (Is it ok for me to say "illegal" again? Thanks Donald Trump!)

We are told repeatedly by the liberal media that opposing citizenship for illegal aliens is electoral poison.

The liberal media wants you to believe this despite the truth of the opposite, that an overwhelming majority of the country opposes illegal immigration. That is their big lie.
