Go to the link it is only 42 seconds. The Interview is on running on Hugh 24 / 7 and apparently Mark Levin had him on as well last night. Busy day on this end, Freepers please help with links etc to add to this Posting! Thanks!
Is it a secret election, unlike the vote for Speaker?
This would be more of an earthquake than Cantor’s loss. We need a true conservative voice in a leadership role. This would give me hope than Speaker Suntan will not be reelected as Speaker next year. It would also rally true conservatives throughout the country to vote this fall.
I thought I read on Fox that he is running for Majority Leader....in opposition to McCarthy.
Here it is.
No mention on FR yet
Thank You for the correction, how do I flag the Moderator for a title correction? Got to go all day affair coming up will check back tonight....
Just hit “report abuse” and tell them what you need.
I’m not too sure he is really all that conservative, better than McCarthy no doubt, but so is most everyone in congress.
Thanks...I thought so but wasn’t sure. That actually makes much easier for conservative to win this thing..they have the votes in the Conference..
I hope so.
Labrador is just another crony capitalist Republican who wants to supply business with more cheap foreign labor. From his website:
“reform must include modernizing our guest worker programs. Guest workers are vital to keep industries in America, and particularly in Idaho, competitive internationally. By providing a legal avenue for foreign workers to enter the United States, a guest worker program is critical to secure the border and eliminate illegal immigration.”
what the aich kind of name is that
take your ipad
Years ago MA had one for the cranberry bogs. (I lived near them) The bog owner had to offer the jobs to locals first. The guest workers had to have sanitary conditions, and be housed, fed, medical needs met and provided reasonable work schedules. Families would come in from Cambodia for the summer and go back to their homelands when harvesting was over.
The invasion actually ruined those kinds of opportunities for law-abiding hard working citizens from poor countries.
If he did happen to win, the MSM/Dems would annoint him ‘white Hispanic’ so they can vilify him without feeling guilty.
House conservatives better get some of their own in the leadership positions.
In January 2013, they had the votes to deseat Boehner, but at the last minute, Bachmann’s and a couple of others’ spines turned to jelly. Boehner was so appreciative that he dumped Bachmann from her committee chairmanship.
You objection to any Guest Worker program does not equate with me.
Who is going to do these essential jobs? Holders people who are stuck in some Reparations warp or our sorryass overweight white kids that have grown up pampered and rarely show up on the job on time or have any real skills beyond playing computer games and texting?
I am sure we agree that illegal immigrants should not receive any gubmit benefits, other than a free bus ride deep into Mexico.
The biggest thing we should change in immigration is the letting any labor type temporary guest worker drag his family with him which then puts them in our golden welfare system. More permanent skilled type guest workers should be under contract to a specific employer and that employer should be responsible for the worker’s health insurance. No non-citizen, no matter the status as guest worker, should pay into FICA or be eligible for any Social Security benefits.
Trouble is they require Common Sense, which is the most missing attribute in government.
The name sounds part Canadian and part Mexican. But he is true-blue American from Puerto Rico. He represents Moscow (Idaho) in Congress.
This is my oldest son Matthew greeting Congressman Raul Labrador in Baghdad a couple of years back.
Matt serves in the Idaho National Guard and lives in Labrador's district.
Congressman Labrador is by trade an immigration lawyer, and a few years ago worked with the Dems extensively to bring about "immigration reform," until he finally saw the political liability he was creating for himself in ID-1. Then he pulled out and took a more "nuanced" position.
Suffice it to say that, personally, I don't trust him on this critical issue of national survival.
That's about all I have to say on this subject, because I can't stand McCarthy either.
But conservatives should know the facts.
Right now, we are offering more H1B1 visas to foreigners each year than the annual job growth for STEM workers. This is nothing but a screw job for our own citizens. Great deal for Mark Zuckerberg and company. The foreign engineers will work for far lower salaries and benefits than our own engineers.
This program should be shut down until there is an real demand for high tech workers.

Raul Labrador’s complicated history on immigration reform
“Who is going to do these essential jobs? Holders people who are stuck in some Reparations warp or our sorryass overweight white kids that have grown up pampered and rarely show up on the job on time or have any real skills beyond playing computer games and texting?”
That’s our conundrum. My personal experience here in CA is that Hispanics are hard-working people, while the “fat whites,” and Holder’s people are couch potatoes who try their best not to work. We also have a substantial Vietnamese community and they are also very hard-working as a group. We used to have a guest worker program here in CA (braceros) wherein the Mexicans could come here on a seasonal basis to do our stoop labor in the fields, but the Blacks (at at the time) raised a stink saying that the non-citizen Hispanics coming here under the program were “taking their jobs.” So the “Black leadership” in our State Legislature led by a crooked Black by the name of Mervyn Dymally got the program eliminated. And you know what, in my 73 years here in CA I have NEVER seen a Black working in a farm field (I guess maybe they don’t want to get their Air Jordan’s dirty).
No way, Jose....er, Raul.
We want a "right", not a "middle" man.
So EternalVigilance, I take it you will be voting for Shirley Ringo in November?
You assume way too much.
"[I]t is natural to man to indulge in the illusions of hope. We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth, and listen to the song of that siren till she transforms us into beasts. Is this the part of wise men, engaged in a great and arduous struggle for liberty? Are we disposed to be of the number of those who, having eyes, see not, and, having ears, hear not, the things which so nearly concern their temporal salvation? For my part, whatever anguish of spirit it may cost, I am willing to know the whole truth; to know the worst, and to provide for it."
-- Patrick Henry, 'Give me liberty or give me death' speech
Very interesting. Thanks for the information.
We need to throw ALL the bums out!!!
