Ted Cruz on Jeb Bush: "Rule of law matters"
Politico ^ | April 8, 2014 | Lucy McCalmont

Posted on 04/08/2014 5:37:46 AM PDT by Biggirl

Texas Sen. Ted Cruz says illegal immigrants endure “heartbreaking” conditions, but wouldn’t agree with former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush that they aren’t committing a felony. “We’re a nation of immigrants, we need to celebrate that, but at the same time, rule of law matters,” Cruz said Monday on CNN’s “The Lead.”

Did I appear to be contradicting Cruz?

Are you so dim that you didn't realize I was dissing Jeb?

This is a very good topic for Cruz.

Go Cruz.

When the second Bush first came out to run for President, he started out pledging to “reach across the aisle” to the Democrats. Well, he did; and he got his hand chewed off. Still is getting blamed for the stuff Obama, the perpetual vacationer, has done. If the Dems ever quit snarfing off those “hands reaching across the aisle”, then some day it might be safe to reach across. As it is, all the reaching goes in one direction.

A point that most Americans don’t know or understand. “Rule of Law matters”. That should be our new motto.

This whole “reach across the aisle” stuff is a bunch of idealist hooey, IMO. These people are our ENEMIES. And for some RINO to go talking about “reach across the aisle,” it translates to me as nothing more than a “reach around.” Effing traitors.

Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice shame on me. I held my nose and voted for McCain, held my nose not quite so tightly and voted for Romney. As someone who has always voted, especially in primaries, if Bush is the nominee I will not vote. I think that is what the ruling class wants, for conservative to sit these elections out. They don’t care which one wins, they are all the same - corrupt. I pray tea party challengers win big and if Boehner and McConnell can be kicked to the curb it will be a good day and a good skirmish.

Jeb Bush is making a very clear bid to sew up the voter loyalty of the 11 to 30 Million Illegal Alien Invaders from Mexico who have been bleeding the USA dry since the disastrous Reagan Amnesty of 1986.

To compensate for Jeb’s bid for the Illegal Alien Invaders, Mrs. Bill Clinton will soon have to start making political speeches in Spanish.

As “both” political parties plunge into the race to the US financial bottom, my guess is that they will reach it - - - alone.

Wars have begun over a lot less of an illegal invasion of territory.

It is time, - - - for a change.

You are right, it makes me sick to hear people (always RINOs) talk about finding common ground and reaching across the aisle. Whatever happened to winning - to winning the argument - not compromising our principles and in many cases the constitution itself. The Republican party doesn’t have the stomach to try and win, and they cant stand the tea party winning.

B. Hussein Obama continues unimpeded as the arrogant Democrat leader of the Left Wing, Anti-Work Counterculture thanks to doormat Republicans such as Boehner, Cantor, Ryan, Issa, McConnell, and McCain.

Counterculture Democrats reap what they sow, and doormat Republicans gladly provide the fertilizer.

What can possibly go wrong?

Bush inadvertently revealed his thinking on the whole issue by not including those overstaying their visas in his 'act of love' rhetoric.

Apparently his heart is with Mexicans and central Americans, IMO because this is where his family's future in politics lie.

Actually there was I believe a big Bush investment somewhere in Central/South America a couple years ago.

Not sure of the details, but I’m not certain you are incorrect.

Bush seems to be in favor of globalism. Bigtime.

When the Second Bush campaigned he campaigned as a “compassionate conservative” thereby dissing and distancing himself from conservatives and putting himself out on RINO Island, an island of misfit pols.

If he hadn’t had the Bush connection, he’d have stayed on the ranch.

But he came in and pretended to be loved by everyone. He didn’t have the character to even carry conservatives, but he could have. Conservatives were hopeful and willing.

THey still don’t hate him as much as his friends, the liberals, do, but conservatives have had enough of namby pamby, with our culture and economy and health care oh and military all going into a dirty drain.

It’s not that conservatives are asking the establishment to give them a good candidate, it’s that conservatives will go further to despise the RINO candidacy even more than Mitt.

And they, unlike RINOs, do not apologize for their feelings.

They are done.

Oy, ‘seems to be’?

Papa Bush came up with the ‘New World Order’.

THey bought an entire hour on Fox News the other night to have Brit Hume march around in a blazer and khakis touting the Bushes as the all American family, wherein all the Bushes came out complementing each other.

THese people have so much money and power it is sick, not because they have it, but because they pretend they don’t have it and they use it nefariously. And they, oh, Bill Clinton was on within three minutes talking about how wonderful Papa Bus is.

It is a conglomerate and we had better wise up.

Anyone who has a clue about how the constitution works and about how powerful and driven the clintonbushes are will win the presidency.

Jeb Bush!! Really?

I want all of these big “American” families of both parties, to turn around and start building up America once again.

We cannot continue to sell out.

We just cannot. America needs to be for America.

Bush (and others) stop selling out your very own country.

Bring back jobs to America. Now.

Ever wonder why Sarah Palin, Ted Cruz and Mike Lee stand out so much nationally and are so hated? They have courage which is so lacking in the Republican party. So few defenders of the constitution, it’s just shameful.

the Bushes and the Clintons will not stop selling out.

It is up to the voters to not only understand that, and realize we cannot tell idiots what to do, that it is up to us to stop voting in selfish idiots, but to realize the amount of voter fraud involved when we run a liberal republican and they are neck and neck, cheating distance from the Clinton or kennedy candidate.

and that when rinos get into office, as they do when the bush candidate gets in, that they do just as much damage as Obama does.

they are not going to change.

Illegal Alien Invaders from Mexico daily demonstrate their “act of love” as they “love” to break our border laws because they know that politicians in “both” political parties will NOT insist that they laws they pass will be enforced.

The only Border “Reform” that needs to be done is to strictly enforce existing US Federal Border Laws, PERIOD.

If an unemployed person goes out and robs a store to get money to feed his family is it considered an “act of love”? Jeb Bush is a shallow liberal and not slick enough for what he is trying to pull off. He needs better RINO coaching on how to try and fool the base and make himself look tough and compassionate at the same time. :-)

Well, live and learn; or so they say. Bush wasn’t perfect; no President has been. I’m real disappointed in my fellow Americans for electing this current Perpetual Vacationer and his ubiquitous Perpetual Vacationing Wifey. - As someone once observed; when Democrats get “their” turn at bat, they gut the military, then march into every skirmish all over the world they can find to send troops into. Bad idea to gut the military, and at the same time, wussify it; but the “Boy Wonder” either can’t comprehend that or else WON’T comprehend it. . “Ellen” notwithstanding.

Jeff Bush loves undocumented immigrants, but, where is his love for the millions of Americans unemployed? There are 91 million Americans out of the work force. Thanks to Obama we have the lowest participation in the work force since the 1970’s and some demagogues want to open wide our borders to hundreds of millions around the world who would love to enjoy the American dream... but that dream is becoming in an American nightmare for those born here and those who came legally to enjoy our way of life loving the U.S. as much as their country of birth.

What is even more aggravating is that people who entered the country illegally are demanding rights and privileges that American citizens do not enjoy and they did not dare to demand from the government of their own country.

California used to be the richest state of America. Now it is almost bankrupt. Anybody can see the result of uncontrolled illegal immigration, and companies are leaving to Texas, Florida and other red states with less taxes and better incentives to invest and prosper.

In fact, unemployment is now lower in Mexico than in U.S.; perhaps Americans will start moving south.

“rule of law matters”

It didn’t to amnesty pushing No Borders Dubya. And it doesn’t to his treasonous brother Jeb.

The problem with the privileged class is that they hold themselves above the law, especially when a law restrains their feelings.

This is nothing more than Republican liberals insisting that their feelings should rule the day instead of the law.

And if refusing to enforce immigration law damages average Americans, well too bad, they should have been born into privilege like the Bush boys.

Jeff Bush extends the red carpet to undocumented migrants.

THE MOST DANFEROUS GANG IN AMERICA

Arian Campo-Flores, Newsweek, Mar. 28, 2005

The signs of a new threat in northern Virginia emerged ominously in blood-spattered urban streets and rural scrub.

Two summers ago the body of a young woman who had informed against her former gang associates was found on the banks of the Shenandoah River, repeatedly stabbed and her head nearly severed.

Last May in Alexandria, gang members armed with machetes hacked away at a member of the South Side Locos, slicing off some of his fingers and leaving others dangling by a shred of skin. Only a week later in Herndon, a member of the 18th Street gang was pumped full of .38-caliber bullets, while his female companion, who tried to flee, was shot in the back. The assailant, according to a witness, had a large tattoo emblazoned on his forehead. It read MS, for Mara Salvatrucha, the gang allegedly responsible for all these attacks.

At the nearby headquarters of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, agents—many of whom live in these communities—fielded the reports with mounting alarm. But Mara Salvatrucha, or MS-13, wasn’t terrifying just northern Virginia. “They were popping up everywhere,” says Chris Swecker, assistant director of the FBI’s criminal investigative division. “It seemed like we were hearing more and more about MS-13.” Then one day last fall, FBI Director Robert Mueller called Swecker into his office. “You have a mandate to go out and address this gang,” Mueller told him. Mueller declared MS-13 the top priority of the bureau’s criminal-enterprise branch—which targets organized crime—and authorized the creation of a new national task force to combat it.

The task force, which includes agencies like the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), aims to take on MS-13 much as the FBI once tackled the Mafia.

Composed of mostly Salvadorans and other Central Americans—many of them undocumented—the gang has a uniquely international profile, with an estimated 8,000 to 10,000 members in 33 states in the United States (out of more than 700,000 gang members overall), and tens of thousands more in Central America. It’s considered the fastest-growing, most violent and least understood of the nation’s street gangs—in part because U.S. law enforcement has not been watching as closely as it might have.

The rest of the history
