  • Like Bush, Many Republicans Are Moderate on Immigration

    FiveThirtyEight ^ | Nate Silver
    The Republican Party has grown more conservative over the past couple of decades. But news commentators sometimes wrongly imply that GOP voters take an extremist position on every issue. As I described on Friday, for example, Jeb Bush’s support of Common Core educational standards isn’t likely to hurt him if he runs for president in 2016; the issue is neither all that relevant to most Republicans nor all that divisive. If candidates running to Bush’s right are looking for a wedge issue, they’ll probably have some better choices.
  • Taxing problems for supposed conservative Arizona candidate Gary Kiehne

    Gary Kiehne, an honest to goodness ropin’ cowboy from rural Arizona, is running for Congress in Arizona’s First Congressional District. At first glance he appears to be the real deal, but according to Wednesday’s Yellow Sheet (subscription only), Kiehne has a problem or two. It seems Kiehne, a reputed multi-millionaire, has not paid his 2013 property tax on a Casa Grande mobile home. Also, this public document available from the Pinal County Assessor’s office indicates he is claiming more than one primary residence, defined in Arizona as Legal Class 3.

    PHOENIX – Calling them a federal “dictate,’’ Sen. Al Melvin persuaded Republican colleagues in the Senate to vote Tuesday to scrap the Common Core education standards the state and schools adopted just four years earlier. The legislation crafted by the Tucson Republican prohibits the state Board of Education from doing anything more to implement the standards that are designed to spell out what students should be learning at all stages of their education. It also means those schools which have put them in place are going to have to dump them. SB 1310 also requires the state to withdraw from...

    Arizona Governor Jan Brewer was right to veto SB1062, which would have amended the Arizona Religious Freedom Restoration Act. The bill, per most interpretations I’ve read, would have given broad discretion to business owners, because of their religious convictions, to refuse to do business with anyone associated with homosexual lifestyles. Religious freedom is about protection of your right to practice your religion and not being forced to violate it. However, the right to religious freedom does not mean the right to write-off and marginalize into non-existence a whole class of citizens whom you don’t like or agree with. Under Jim...

    Back in 2012, a full two years before conservatives insisted that religious freedom entailed the right to discriminate against gay people or gay spouses in both private and public workplaces, Republicans in Washington trotted out the same religious liberty line for the arguably narrower purpose of defending religious employers who wanted to be exempt from the Affordable Care Act’s contraception mandate. ........................................................

Brewer said she has never been a fan of “Obamacare.’’ And she pointed out she was among several governors who sued — unsuccessfully — to have it declared unconstitutional. But the governor said once it was clear the law would take effect, she sought ways to have Arizona take advantage of a key provision rewarding states that expand their Medicaid programs.

Others released included repeat drunken-driving offenders who, in addition to being in our country illegally, have exhibited behavior that places at-risk every Arizonan innocently sharing our roadways.

    Budget: Even before sequestration hits, the administration has been releasing hundreds of illegal aliens scheduled for deportation, jeopardizing public safety in a demagogic attempt to scare us into not cutting spending. 'I'm appalled to learn the U.S. Department of Homeland Security has begun to release hundreds of illegal aliens from custody, the first of potentially thousands to soon be freed under the guise of federal budget cuts," said Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer on Tuesday in response to the release by Immigration and Customs Enforcement of hundreds of "low-risk" illegal aliens from detention. Well, so are we. We are appalled at...

    FLORENCE, Ariz. - Over the weekend, Immigration and Customs Enforcement released hundreds of detainees, and Wednesday -- the executive who made that decision announced his retirement. The man in charge of arresting and deporting immigrants announced that he'll be retiring in April. Meanwhile, hundreds of detainees have been set free. It's a decision that Governor Jan Brewer calls "appalling." "I was jumping for joy, I was so happy to know I would be leaving," said Cesar Lorenti. Cesar Lorenti is free from prison, along with hundreds of other illegal immigrants, after the Department Of Homeland Security authorized the release ahead...

    GRETA VAN SUSTEREN, FOX NEWS HOST: $85 billion sequester quickly approaching and a debt quickly headed towards $17 trillion. Sound like reasons for concern? Well, not if you ask Vice President Joe Biden, the vice president saying the American people are no longer worried about our economy. (BEGIN VIDEO CLIP) JOSEPH BIDEN, VICE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES: They're no longer traumatized by what was a traumatizing event, the great collapse in 2008. They're no longer worried, I think, about our economy being overwhelmed either by Europe writ large, the EU, or China somehow swallowing up every bit of innovation...

    SEE:Poison pill? GOP governors divided over whether to accept ObamaCare Medicaid expansion By Lee Ross Published February 06, 2013 FoxNews.com "Saying 'no' to this plan would not save these federal dollars from being spent or direct them to deficit reduction," Brewer determined. So far, five other Republican-led states -- Nevada, New Mexico, North Dakota, Michigan and Ohio -- have announced support for the expanded program“ These five GOP governors are now complicit in the Obama Administration’s policies which will borrow this Medicaid expansion money from China, drastically increasing our national debt, and result in our nation’s younger generation being born...

    Dear Friends, I have been in contact with Senator McCain regarding the now released immigration reform ideas presented by his working group of Senators. I am pleased that there is expressed recognition of what we have been saying in Arizona: immigration reform will not succeed unless and until we have achieved effective border security. If this occurs, it would be a triumph for the rule of law and a testament to the united voices of Americans from across our country who have been clear in their call for the federal government to uphold its duty to secure the border. Our...

    Immigration fallout from saying no to 'Obamacare' WASHINGTON (AP) — Governors who reject health insurance for the poor under the federal health care overhaul could wind up in a politically awkward position on immigration: A quirk in the law means some U.S. citizens would be forced to go without coverage, while legal immigrants residing in the same state could still get it. It's an unintended consequence of how last year's Supreme Court decision changed the Medicaid provisions of President Barack Obama's health care law. The overhaul expanded the federal-state program for low-income and disabled people. The Supreme Court made the...
  • How a GOP Governor Walked Arizona into Obamacare's Medicaid Expansion Trap

    One of the most transformative aspects of Obamacare is that it conscripts state governments for the purpose of providing subsidized health insurance to their residents. Most red states have done their best to refuse, by declining to expand their Medicaid programs, and by passing up the opportunity to set up state-based insurance exchanges, through which Obamacare’s subsidies would flow. But a handful of Republican governors are doing their part to implement Obamacare. Arizona’s Jan Brewer, in particular, is proposing to do so in a way that sheds a lot of light onto the trap that Obamacare has set for state...

    Today is the birthday of Arizona Governor Jan Brewer, who helped spark a movement across America to take back the rule of law on immigration when she signed S.B. 1070 on April 23, 2010. She has shown grit and determination in the face of constant opposition and hostility from the Obama Administration. And she stood alone to oppose Obama's lawless "Dream" amnesty by declaring that those illegal aliens would be barred from driver's licenses, in-state tuition and state benefits. She has been steadfast in her dedication to the rule of law, and today we salute her... HAPPY BIRTHDAY GOVERNOR!Please leave...

    Stand With Arizona ^ | 09-26-2012 | John Hill
    The last barrier to Arizona's enforcement of its landmark immigration law has been swept away - and by a left-leaning court to boot. The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco on Tuesday rejected the ACLU and its allies, by denying the coalition’s emergency motion for an injunction to block the key provision of S.B. 1070's. That provision, Section 2B, requires state and local police officers to attempt to determine the immigration status of any person stopped under state or local law if “reasonable suspicion” exists that the person is unlawfully present in the United States. Section 2B - the heart of...
