    Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach rolled latecomer Scott Morgan in the Republican primary Tuesday, leveraging advantages in fundraising and name recognition. Kobach, whose work on illegal immigration and other issues had earned him a national profile even before he was elected secretary of state in 2010, was out-polling Morgan, a Lawrence businessman, 65 percent to 35 percent with more than two-thirds of precincts reporting when The Associated Press called the election for him.
  • This prominent conservative says immigration reform isn't necessarily dead

    Washington Examiner ^ | June 10, 2014 | BY BETSY WOODRUFF
    Tuesday might have been a bad night for immigration reform -- but not necessarily. That's the message from Grover Norquist, the president of Americans for Tax Reform. He favors the kind of immigration reform -- including a large guest worker program and more legal immigration -- that many Tea Party activists vehemently oppose. But it’s not guaranteed, and it depends on the media narrative that emerges, he added. “Give it ten days,” Norquist said. If a consensus emerges that Cantor’s stance on immigration lost him his seat, then that’s a big problem for reform proponents. “If the narrative hardens that...

    Radio host Laura Ingraham and Americans for Tax Reform president Grover Norquist engaged in a heated exchange on immigration reform on Ingraham’s show Tuesday. At one point, Ingraham, a Fox News contributor, accused anti-tax advocate Norquist of “whining” over the discussion on the show. After Ingraham said allowing more immigrant workers to come into the U.S. would be “obscene to the American experience,” Norquist cut in.

Brat, a primary challenger to House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.), made arrangements to attend two exclusive meetings Wednesday: anti-tax activist Grover Norquist’s weekly breakfast at the Washington offices of Americans for Tax Reform, and the Weyrich lunch, a Capitol Hill gathering of hard-right operatives named after the late conservative strategist Paul Weyrich.

    Conservative activist Grover Norquist wants to name 3,000 things after Ronald Reagan. His next target is a small mountain in Democratic Sen. Harry Reid's home state. The would-be Mount Reagan, at 3,366 feet, is not nearly the highest peak in Nevada. But it does overlook Las Vegas and, as such, would remind all who visit and live there of the former two-term California governor who went on to become president and lodestar of the Republican Party.

In that piece, the longtime GOP operative and consultant argued that “conservatives should be at the forefront of reform so the law reflects the just interests of the United States, not misty-eyed ideals of some of the liberal do-gooder reformers.” That means no special pathways to citizenship that allow undocumented immigrants to cut in line, Russo cautioned, but rather some reasonable procedures that require “the 11 million people who...

Norquist, a conservative leader who heads the anti-taxation Americans for Tax Reform, told The Hill Tuesday the Republican Party should instead incorporate Republican officeholders into its debate format. Having conservative talk radio hosts Mark Levin or Rush Limbaugh host debates would be “not useful,” Norquist told The Hill. Talk radio hosts, he said, are primarily entertainers who would draw attention away from the candidates themselves. He also said the radio hosts, despite their popularity, did not necessarily represent the Republican mainstream. He...

Rubio, a member of the bipartisan Gang of Eight that authored the bill, has furiously tried to blunt the criticism this week, acknowledging concerns that the bill does not go far enough to ensure border security and prevent "amnesty," an ambiguous but potent fear among opponents of immigration reform.

Just last week, he was front and center at the Gang of 8′s amnesty press conference — despite longtime concerns expressed on this blog and by national security advocates and activists about his dangerous Islamist alliances and progressive proclivities. Now we learn that Norquist’s convicted terrorist pal and former funder, Abdurahman Alamoudi, was the first president of the radical mosque attended by the Boston bomber brothers, Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev. Alamoudi, as I’ve documented repeatedly here, provided seed money to Norquist’s Muslim outreach effort during the Bush years.

One wonders how long it will take for the Saudi Public Relations spin machine to kick into action. Indeed in the years since the 9/11 attack, in which 15 of the 19 bombers were Saudi Arabian, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has spent over $100 million on American Public Relations companies. Clearly, those funds have gone far and have been well spent. Including their current PR firm, Edelman,...

    Grover Norquist, champion of Islamism infiltration, is working to advance the cause of tax reform by backing an illegal alien amnesty that will impose a whopping economic burden on the country… leading to higher taxes. The contradiction is obvious. If you’re going to legalize 12 million undocumented Democrats plus all their family members then you are tremendously boosting the welfare state on the receiving end and the voting end. The only way that the pro-amnesty side can win the amnesty debate is by not having it. And that means going after any sources of facts and taking them down. The...

    It was particularly delicious that I was invited to speak at the Conservative Political Action Conference, or CPAC, at the invitation of the Breitbart organization. The Breitbart event, “The Uninvited,” was a special two-hour session of hot-button issues, including global jihad, the ongoing global persecution of Christians and the gutting of the American military. Breitbart is here, indeed. The event was standing room only. And I was overwhelmed by the rush of applause and folks who stood up when I walked into the room for the event. It was mind-blowing. These people get it. The theme of my remarks was...
  • Pam Geller: CPAC board member is “worse” than Anwar al-Awlaki

    Anti-Muslim activist and blogger Pam Geller said Saturday at a CPAC panel of rouge conservative activists that a board member of the group that puts on the annual conservative conference is worse than a terrorist killed by an American drone strike in Yemen. Geller said the reason she and the other panelists — including fellow anti-Muslim activists Frank Gaffney and Robert Spencer — were barred from CPAC because of the nefarious influence of board members Grover Norquist and Suhail Khan. The three anti-Muslim activists have for years accused Gaffney and Khan of being members of the Muslim Brotherhood and secret...

    Print This Post Many years ago, when I interviewed the great avant-garde saxophonist Charles Gayle, I asked him about bitter criticism he had received for his tendency to preach a pro-life message in the middle of his concerts. “Yeah,” he said with some amusement, “they always call me ‘right-wing.’ Man, I ain’t got no wings!” Neither do I. And as the events of the past week have shown, I am not “right-wing,” either; nor, by the standards of some of the organizers and chief figures of the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), am I a conservative. Throughout my public career,...

    I was aced out of the CPAC People's Choice Blog Award by those who were desperate to avoid discussion of the Islamic supremacist ties of Grover Norquist and Suhail Khan. Well, they're going to get it anyway: "'The Uninvited': A Session of Controversial Speakers and Topics," from Breitbart News, March 14: March 14, 2013 (Los Angeles, CA) – Breitbart News Network announced today that it will host a special two-hour session of controversial speakers and topics. The session will also include active audience participation. Among the topics covered: Crony Capitalism, Global Jihad, Illegal Immigration, the ongoing global persecution of Christians,...

    Pat Caddell, the Fox News Contributor and Democrat pollster who engineered Jimmy Carter’s 1976 Presidential victory, blew the lid off CPAC on Wednesday with a blistering attack on "racketeering" Republican consultants who play wealthy donors like "marks." "I blame the donors who allow themselves to be played for marks. I blame the people in the grassroots for allowing themselves to be played for suckers....It's time to stop being marks. It's time to stop being suckers. It’s time for you people to get real," he told the audience that included two top Republican consultants. . . . Caddell left no doubt...

    About 200 donors on the email distribution list for Karl Rove's group "American Crossroads" may be receiving an interesting message Thursday: Don't donate to American Crossroads. Conservative activist Brent Bozell, chairman of the group ForAmerica, obtained the distribution list and plans to send a letter blasting Crossroads' role in last year's election and the creation of its new independent group for the 2014 mid-term elections. Rove, the former top political adviser to President George W. Bush, generated strong pushback from tea party groups earlier this year when he announced the formation of another offshoot, "Conservative Victory Project," dedicated to helping...

    From its founding four decades ago, the Conservative Political Action Conference — known as CPAC and set to get underway Thursday — has come to function as an annual gut check for the political right. At the CPAC gathering of post-Watergate 1975, then-California Gov. Ronald Reagan famously exhorted the demoralized group to raise “a banner of no pale pastels, but bold colors which make it unmistakably clear where we stand on all of the issues troubling the people.” And CPAC was where, on the heels of his landslide presidential reelection a decade later, Reagan proclaimed: “The tide of history is...

    For anyone going to the upcoming Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), I’m sure by now you’re aware that there will be no panels conducted regarding the threat of Islam this year.  All of our leading experts on Islam–Robert Spencer, Pamela Geller, Frank Gaffney and others–have been banned from speaking and/or holding panels.Unfortunately, many Conservatives still aren’t aware that two of the most influential organizers of CPAC—seemingly innocuous tax guru Grover Norquist and former aide in the Bush administration Suhail Khan—are fighting together to eliminate any dissenting voices about the influence of the Muslim Brotherhood in America.  Why is this?Last year, I...

    American Conservative Union Chairman Al Cardenas said he supported a bipartisan Senate effort at immigration reform, stressing that the proposal must include a way for an estimated 11 million illegal aliens to “come out of the shadows” and be given “a legal status where they can be secure in this country for their future and that of their children.” Cardenas made his remarks on the Spanish-language Telemundo show Enfoque on Sunday, noting that immigration is an issue he plans to stress at the upcoming Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Washington, D.C., which opens next week. … When asked what...
