  • Tancredo: House GOP Preparing to Sell Out on Immigration Bills

    Breitbart ^ | Tom Tancredo
    House Speaker Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) this past week again showed he will punish conservative House members for not supporting deals he strikes with President Obama and Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA). This does not bode well for the package of immigration bills to be debated on the House floor sometime after the July Fourth recess. House Republicans have been writing and “marking up” more than a dozen immigration bills over the past year, and Republican leaders have been promising a “package of little bills” as an alternative to the “comprehensive” bills favored by the amnesty lobby.

    Texas Gov. Rick Perry’s clashes with conservative activists are nothing new: A bitter battle over racial preferences and liberal judges has raged in the tight-knit world of Lone Star politics since 2001. In the days following George W. Bush’s election to the presidency, the newly minted Gov. Perry had a chance to prove his mettle by nominating justices to fill two Texas Supreme Court vacancies. Following Ronald Reagan’s unsuccessful 1987 nomination of Robert Bork to the U.S. Supreme Court, conservative activists had been awakened to a new kind of politics — the politics of judicial nominations — and Perry’s selection...

Current immigration law allows U.S. citizens and legal permanent residents to sponsor non-nuclear, adult family members, creating an endless chain of mass legal immigration.

    Colorado gubernatorial candidate Tom Tancredo couldn’t win a statewide race if the Democratic candidate were caught in a sexting scandal, according to the Colorado Springs Gazette’s editorial board. In a scathing editorial, the paper urged Republican primary candidates Scott Gessler and Mike Kopp — described in the editorial as capable candidates — to fall on their swords and bow out of the June 24 primary race. That would eliminate the chance for moderate Republicans to split three ways between them and former Congressman Bob Beauprez — the scenario that makes it easiest for Tancredo to win the nomination.

However, only 45 percent say he deserves a second term, the same percentage that believes he does not. n hypothetical matchups against a series of Republican opponents, however, Hickenlooper performs well. Voters prefer him over former Rep. Tom Tancredo, 48 percent-39 percent. Hickenlooper leads Colorado Secretary of State Scott Gessler, 46-40. And he bests...

    I’m the first to acknowledge that among the estimated 11 million illegal immigrants in the United States, many are hardworking, law-abiding members of our society. A very small percentage were brought here by their parents, and did not choose to break the law themselves.

The latest of these hard cases involves the former Washington Post reporter Jose Antonio Vargas, who revealed he was an illegal immigrant in a new New York Times...

    At their new political high-water mark, Republicans have plenty of reasons to celebrate - and at least one large cause for worry. On Election Day, voters shattered the Obama agenda of expanded public benefits and increased income tax progressivity, leaving the president to reassemble his goals with glue and tape. During this midterm cycle, Republicans became reacquainted with estranged friends: independents, seniors, college-educated voters, working-class voters, rural voters and suburban voters. The Republican Party will benefit from the infusion of diverse, attractive new leaders, including some, such as Florida Sen.-elect Marco Rubio, with Tea Party pedigrees.

    While the conservative resurgence throughout the nation in yesterday’s election looks promising for Americans who are desperately reaching for the brake pedal to stop Obama’s out-of-control side-skid to the left, Colorado Democrats continue to hold on to considerable power. Given a refreshingly real choice between conservative secure-borders candidate Tom Tancredo and radical leftist Denver Mayor John Hickenlooper, the voters chose the option that will ensure Colorado remains an open-borders, sanctuary state for illegal aliens.

But it all could have gone very differently. Republican Dan Maes' campaign was a complete disaster. After knocking of the GOP favorite Scot McInnis, who became mired in a plaigarism scandal, Maes is on track to earn less than 10% of the vote, which would hand the GOP "minority party status" in upcoming elections. This would kick the Republican Party lower on subsequent ballots, relegating it to the land of...

    American Constitution Party leaders say Denver is not giving the party fair access to a vote tabulation room to prevent possible voter irregularities. Denver elections watchers can only view the process in which questionable ballots are scanned by city election workers from outside the room through a window. "To have a pane of glass between a watcher and judges doesn't allow watchers to hear and see everything that is going on inside," said Amanda Campbell, an American Constitution Party executive committee member and a candidate for Colorado Secretary of State. But city officials say they allowed American Constitution Party members...

    The Washington Post's Post Partisan ^ | November 2, 2010 | Michael Gerson
    For many Republicans, the bright, golden haze of Election Day is marred by a thunderhead on the horizon -- the increasingly erratic political interventions of Sarah Palin. In the past, Palin embodied the populist style of the Tea Party movement while espousing a fairly mainstream Republican ideology. On economic, social and foreign policy, Palin seldom strayed from a simplified, popularized Reaganism. The mama grizzly may have been ferocious, but her talking points came from the Heritage Foundation instead of from darker corners of the right. But this election season has called that perception into question. Palin's endorsement of Christine O'Donnell...

    Tom Tancredo will become Colorado's next governor, and Republicans will take over the state's legislature while Attorney General John Suthers will be re-elected, predicted David Flaherty, president and CEO of Magellan Data and Mapping Strategies, a Louisville, CO, pollster that works for Republicans around the country. In a phone interview, Flaherty said polls that show John Hickenlooper winning the gubernatorial race are using demographics and turnout numbers that incorrectly skew their results in favor of Democrats. "I do believe that Tom Tancredo is going to win," Flaherty declared. In recent polls, Tancredo has about 73% of Republican voters. Flaherty thinks...

    630 KHOW Denver ^ | November 1, 2010 | Craig Silverman
    How are you going to judge a fight where one of the competitors only dances and never punches? I score it for the man who is engaged and competing. What if there is a fight and one side keeps throwing exceptionally low blows? At a certain point, that kind of dirty fighter gets disqualified by any fair referee. I am voting for Tancredo and Buck. It is kind of shocking for me to write, let alone do. The vast majority of my votes have been Democratic through the years. I voted for Obama in 2008. I am disappointed in the...
