Alligators, Moats and Other Such Nonsense – Victor Davis Hanson

Thursday, May 19th, 2011

Why, 28 months into the Obama presidency, is there now a sudden push to pass “comprehensive” immigration reform? After all, from 2009 to early 2011, Obama had large Democratic majorities in both the House and Senate. Why hasn’t Obama already rammed through his own immigration bill, as he did with health care?

Rasmussen – 64% Still Put Border Security Ahead of Legalizing Illegals Already Here

Thursday, May 19th, 2011

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey of Likely Voters shows that 64% believe gaining control of the border is more important than legalizing the status of undocumented workers living in the United States. Thirty-one percent (31%) share the opposite view and believe legalizing those already here should be top priority. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

Voters have strongly supported border control as a legislative priority for years. Last month, 63% placed higher importance on border security. But most voters (54%) also favor an immigration policy that welcomes all immigrants except for national security threats, criminals and those who come to the United States to live off the welfare system. Twenty-nine percent (29%) oppose this type of welcoming policy, while another 16% are undecided. These findings, too, have remained fairly consistent for several years.

Op-Ed, Americans for Limited Government Urges Senate to Block Obama Nominee Goodwin Liu for 9th Circuit Court

ALG Urges Senate to Block Goodwin Liu for 9th Circuit Court

May 18th, 2011, Fairfax, VA-Americans for Limited Government President Bill Wilson today urged the U.S. Senate to block the confirmation of Stanford Law Professor Goodwin Liu to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals:

“There is simply no excuse for any Senator who professes a belief in constitutionally limited government to consider voting in favor of the confirmation of Goodwin Liu to a lifetime appointment on the federal bench.  Liu is the embodiment of disregarding the words of the framers and inserting his own political bias, and should be rejected.

“To be absolutely clear, a vote to allow Liu’s nomination to the Senate floor is a vote in favor of putting Liu and his radical agenda on the federal bench.  There can be no political doubletalk, a vote to invoke cloture on Liu’s nomination is a vote for judicial extremism.”

Also see the video on Mr. Liu, as well as an Americans for Limited Government article detailing Liu’s writings which reveal his radical views on the Constitution.  Liu is up for a cloture vote in the Senate on Thursday, May 19th.
