Huge #Breitbart.com EXCLUSIVE: ‘Illegal’ Scheduled to Testify on Immigration

Whipping up the right wing base into a nice frothy hate meringue
Wingnuts • Views: 17,719

Today at the loony right wing site founded by Andrew Breitbart, they have another BOMBSHELL EXCLUSIVE! I’m not sure why it’s supposed to be “exclusive,” when it’s simply a report about the upcoming Senate hearings on immigration, but you know how these people are — shameless, inadvertently hilarious self-aggrandizers: Exclusive: Illegal Immigrant to Testify in Senate Next Week—With ICE Agent Who Cannot Arrest Him.

Their EXCLUSIVE report is about Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Jose Antonio Vargas, who the simple-minded Breitbart goons reduce to an “illegal immigrant.” Vargas was brought to the US from the Philippines at the age of 12, studied hard, and built a very distinguished career. He recently revealed that he was an undocumented immigrant in order to raise consciousness about the DREAM Act.

So of course, the Breitbrats are raving about arresting and deporting him; more than one commenter in the thread would like to see him put up against a wall and shot.

Hatred is breitbart.com’s business, and there’s always a market for it on the right.

The next step to queue ‘plodey heads is to find a nice Aryan-looking German or Swede who has overstayed a student visa or something and roll them out to testify as another “illegal”.

For people who are so enamored with the idea of tearing down the federal government brick by brick, they are very fond of exacting adherence to its laws.

Y’know, so long as those laws hate the blahs and the murskin’s.

So much for “in the shadows” or “hiding in fear” as reasons why we need to act on amenity now, now NOW!

I say we do what his home country would do to us if we broke into the Philippines, and committed crime after crime. I’m sure my butt would be red from the caning, then end up in a filthy prison for years with no medical care and eating rats, before being thrown out, that’s if they don’t kill me first.

F this guy and his American hating views and F Amnesty while were at it.

What American hating views? He was brought here to this country at the age of 12. Do we expect pre-teens to self-deport against their parents wishes and return to the country of origin on their own? Are we to assume that this doesn’t happen with conservatives as well? This is absurd and it can happen to anyone. And again, American hating views?

from Armchair Patriots on fb —

“How would YOU respond to this Vagina-themed message we got this morning?

Dear Armchair Patriots,

My name is Mike. I am a 38 year old working class man who is divorced and who is forced to swallow a corrupted American family legal system which caters to blood sucking attorneys, retired judges and cops, and women of course. Not that the later is a bad thing because I have women in my life whom I love but in terms of the law, I like most women, deserve to be treated equally as a parent. Your page perpetuates cliche sexist diatribes that in my opinion are childish and lack any real value outside of fodder for the angry and mindless. You should try nurturing those who “like” your page with tools for independent thought. We Desperately need fresh thinking to solve the problems of this country and world. It brings me no pleasure to inform you of this but, your vagina is too big. It is so big in fact that it isn’t just circus side show big; IT IS THE CIRCUS. It is an all consuming vagina devouring the world. I weep for my sons and daughters that they would ever inherit such a monstrous thing. There are some productive statements made w/ a few of the bumper stickers you represent but by and far I don’t view your page as honorable. Nobody like a big vagina agape and smelly. Douche. I will return to your page in 7 days and 7 nights and when upon return; if you have not redirected some of your energy, I will have no other option but to take immediate action against this diseased page.”

Gingrich says, “Shut up! Shut up! Shut up!

Gingrich to Republicans: Don’t sound like Romney on immigration

“It is difficult to understand how someone running for President of the United States, a country with more than 50 million Hispanic citizens, could fail to acknowledge that the American people should not take grandmothers who have been here 25 years, have deep family and community ties — and forcibly expel them,” he writes before attacking Romney for his comments on “self-deportation,” warning that “rhetoric can kill the Republican Party among Latinos.”

Gingrich, who faded in the GOP primary field partly because of Romney’s attacks on his opposition to deporting all undocumented immigrants, says he doesn’t mean to “single out” Romney — though he spends the first two thirds of the email rehashing Romney’s remarks during the GOP primaries.

When these people are “others” it is easy to reduce them to a label “illegal immigrant” or “parasite” in order to find a reason to simply get rid of them.

The point of immigration reform is to address the human factor that is behind legal and illegal immigration in this country.

For the same reason they’ve hated every previous mass migration: They think the new folks are gonna breed them out and kill off ‘Murica as they know it (i.e. put an end to white Christian male dominance).

The Breitbrats are outraged that an ‘illegal’ will be testifying instead of arrestifying. I’m outraged that one of the other witnesses at the hearing will be Jessica Vaughn of the fucking racist Center for Immigration Studies. The head of that group, Mark Krikorian, was harassing Jose on Twitter [Link: twitter.com…] yesterday.

Krikorian is a prolific author at NRO. He wrote a book opposing illegal AND legal immigration. And he’s an immigrant to the US.

He often gets to have his say in mainstream media when there is coverage of immigration. He should be shunned as a bigot.

CIS: The “Independent” Think Tank

Last October, as America was being roiled by the subprime mortgage meltdown that led to the current financial crisis, the executive director of one of the most influential immigration think tanks in the nation was in a joking mood.

Shortly after the failure of Washington Mutual Bank, Mark Krikorian found a press release issued months earlier by the bank that celebrated its inclusion on a list of “Business Diversity Elites” compiled by Hispanic Business magazine. Krikorian posted the release at the conservative National Review Online, where he writes from time to time, along with his own sneering headline: “Cause and Effect?”

Hobnobbing with extremists: CIS Executive Director Mark Krikorian posed in 2007 with Kyle Bristow, then a student leader at Michigan State University who ranted publicly about “Judeo-Bolshevism.”

Krikorian no doubt thought of his posting as a simple joke. But to many, the attempt by the leader of the Washington, D.C.-based Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) to suggest a link between Washington Mutual’s commitment to opening its ranks to Latinos and its demise spoke volumes about the nature of CIS and its prolific research. Although the think tank bills itself as an “independent” organization with a “pro-immigrant” if “low-immigration” vision, the reality is that CIS has never found any aspect of immigration that it liked.

Continues.

18 complicated scientific ideas explained simply

A few months ago, Randall Munroe of the webcomic xkcd published a description of the Saturn V rocket using only the 1,000 most frequent words in English. Under this restriction, the rocket was called “up-goer five,” the command module was “people box,” and the liquid hydrogen feed line was “thing that lets in cold wet air to burn.” The comic inspired Theo Anderson, a geneticist who supports accessible science education, to build a text editor that would force the user to write with only the 1,000 most frequent words. He then invited scientists to describe what they do using the editor.

Geologists Anne Jefferson and Chris Rowan created the Tumblr “Ten Hundred Words of Science” to collect examples of scientific text rendered into up-goer five speak. From the site, here are examples of up-goer simplified science from 18 different fields.

It *was* an animated Honeymooners. But I generally despised the Honeymooners main characters for the same reasons Dectatur Deb mentioned.

One can make an argument that Hitler was so far left in many ways that he wound up right-wing and that Stalin was so far right-wing in many ways that it left him left.

But none of this should diminish the fact that Obama is a secularist-jihadist communist-fascist who is too inept to run America but fully capable of destroying all our freedoms.

Record snow in a warming world? The science is clear

Super-saturated air
The science behind this is clear: Warmer temperatures cause more water to evaporate into the atmosphere, and warmer air holds more water than cooler air. The air’s “water-holding capacity,” in fact, rises about 7 percent with each Celsius degree of warming. This results in air that becomes super-saturated with water, often bringing drenching rainfall followed by flooding or – if it is cold enough – heavy and intense snowfall.

If you can’t get reservations in the park, Mariposa is a nice place to stay nearby.

Or stay in Lee Vining on the eastern side next to Mono Lake(also worth a visit if you’re going to be in the area) - really stark landscape (high desert), and entering the park from the back side is a lot less crowded…it’s also a gorgeous climb up the mountains. Once you get close to Yosemite Valley it turns into a crawl. Assuming you fly into San Francisco, drive out Highway 80/50 to South Lake Tahoe (3.5 hrs), then cross over 89/88 through Markleeville (about 2 hrs or so - huge fucking caldera up there that you get to drive around), and then down 395 to Lee Vining. From there it’s only a half hour into the park. Spend a day in South Lake, enjoy a slow winding drive over to the east side, and then work your way back to the city through the park.

re: #129 lawhawk

Try to see the elk. They’re really impressive. The males clash with each other all the time and it’s stunning. There’s a ton of great hikes around there too.

If you want a real, amazing hike sometime, and are okay with doing a dawn-to-dusk hike or overnighting it, go down to Big Sur and hike the Cruickshank Trail. It starts with endless switchbacks up a seaside mountain/hill, and just when you’re getting kind of tired of that you start curving around the hill slowly the view changing a bit by bit. Then suddenly there’s a furor of bees, and you’re walking along dense patches of wildflowers while bees, completely oblivious to your presence, rocket past you to get to all that sweet goddamn nectar.

The trail goes on winding up like some sort of Tolkein-like passage through the hills alongside sheer dropoffs that had my wife annoyed at me for going too fast— I’ve got basically no fear of heights— and after a long hot while of that (hope for some fog to cool you off) you get to the beginnings of a hillside forest. A half a mile or so into that you come to one of the most pleasant little meadows, with trees widely set in it, that I’ve ever seen. If I ever go crazy hermit I’m going to build a shack in that meadow.

Past that, you get into wetter forest and it’s cool and refreshing and you cross a few rivers and there’s a few camps by the river. I recommend pushing on to Villa Camp and staying overnight there, and then you can continue hiking out along that path if you were lucky enough to have people drop you off or you can turn back and do the Cruickshank in reverse ending with a long, hypnotic walk down those switchbacks while looking out over the endless Pacific.

143 Killgore Trout  Sat, Feb 9, 2013 12:19:19pm

Anyone excited by the idea of drone courts?
Do US drone kills need an oversight board? How would it work?
Seems like a weird use of courts to have them rule if someone should be killed by the military instead of could they be legally killed. Either way it looks like the proposal is pretty silly.

It could provide “an independent perspective” with regards to Americans who throw in their lot with Al Qaeda, King said.

However, whether such a court would apply only to US citizens, or to all potential targeted killing subjects, in practice it likely would function much differently than the FISA model.

As University of Texas law professor Robert Chesney writes on the Lawfare national security blog, it’s unlikely such a court would review actual decisions to pull a trigger. In that sense the analogy with FISA, which oversees actual wiretaps, would not hold.

There just wouldn’t be enough time for a court to consider decisions that must be made as quickly as those in drone warfare, according to Professor Chesney.

“The more serious proposals concede this point, and focus on whether there ought to be judicial review of some kind in connection with the nomination process pursuant to which particular persons may be pre-cleared for the possibility of using lethal force, a decision made long in advance of an actual attack decision,” Chesney writes.

It would probably just end up being a rubber stamp formality for very rare occasions.

Rand has potential if the GOP finishes turning into the old white male party and devolves into a regional party with only spoiler ability nationally.

Which, sadly, is very likely to happen.

Another party will likely gain traction as the GOP disintegrates into the White Nationalist party. The question is, what exactly will it turn out to be?

Dems can always fall back on Hilary and I’m sure they can dig up another viable candidate or two. I don’t think anyone from the last GOP primary circus will return to try again. They’re going to need a whole new field.

The thing you keep blankly floating over is that the GOP establishment is now batshit insane. It’s not just the Tea Party types— it took the GOP establishment to engineer the game of chicken on default, it takes the GOP establishment to hold up an insane number of appointments. The GOP mainstream is extremist.

The real ‘mainstream’ should be someone like Huntsman— who would still be wildly to the ‘right’ economically— but he’s way out on the fringe.

re: #150 Killgore Trout

I am starting to think Rand might have some potential. He’s not as outwardly crazy as his pop and his version of pseudo-libertariansim is just repackaged generic conservatism. I think his biggest asset is his willingness to speak up of select issues (like immigration, legalizing pot, or whatever) that go against the grain of the GOP dogma.Very few others are willing to do that and I think for him it has the potential to create the impression that he has actual leadership qualities. Something the GOP needs desperately is some sort of leadership.

He is less crazy in some points than the rest of the GOP, more crazy in others.

175 Gus  Sat, Feb 9, 2013 1:00:04pm

I don’t see what’s so controversial about saying that Rand Paul will garner a large following in Republicans circles. That’s already happened and his playing second string to Rubio is a clear indication of this. As to whether he’d go as far as the 2016 field is concerned that’s hard to tell at this point. But Rand Paul has clearly shown himself to be the leader of the Tea Party wing of the Senate.

I seriously don’t think that Hillary will try again; she’s just getting too old to withstand the rigors of a full-blown campaign, not to mention the stress of a presidency.

However, on the GOP side, I fully expect that most, if not all, of the primary losers this past time around will try again, especially Gingrich, Santorum, and Huckabee.

The potential for obtaining that kind of political power is like a siren call to some and if it also fattens their wallets (via book deals and speaking engagements), there’s not a lot of downside for them.

The Strange Case Of The Philandering, Muslim-Threat-Hyping FBI Agent

An FBI agent who worked on the corruption case of former Louisiana Congressman William Jefferson resigned after superiors found a list he wrote of his sexual conquests with agents and a confidential source, according to court documents.

The same agent, John Guandolo, who is married and who unsuccessfully solicited a $75,000 donation for an anti-terrorism group from a wealthy witness in the Jefferson case with whom he was having an affair, resigned from the FBI and appears to have landed on his feet on the speaking circuit playing up the threat of Islamic terrorism.

The affair list was first reported by Allan Lengel at ticklethewire.com

The relationship between Guandolo and key government informant Lori Mody, a former tech executive for whom Guandolo worked undercover as a driver, failed to derail the Jefferson conviction after a judge ruled it irrelevant this week.

Continues.

Bozos.

Brennan’s CIA career, which reached the “highest rungs” of the CIA, included analyst and administrative work in the Washington D.C. area, and overseas work as a spy.[2][6][16] At one point, he was a daily intelligence briefer for President Bill Clinton.[6] In 1996 he was CIA station chief in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia when the Khobar Towers bombing killed 19 U.S. servicemen.[6] In 1999 he was appointed chief of staff to George Tenet, then-Director of the CIA.[3][6] Brennan became deputy executive director of the CIA in March 2001.[3] He was director of the newly created Terrorist Threat Integration Center from 2003 to 2004, an office that sifted through and compiled information for President Bush’s daily top secret intelligence briefings and employed the services of analysts from a dozen U.S. agencies and entities.[17] One of the controversies in his career involves the distribution of intelligence to the Bush White House that helped lead to an “Orange Terror Alert”, over Christmas 2003. The intelligence, which purported to list terror targets, was highly controversial within the CIA and was later discredited. An Obama administration official does not dispute that Brennan distributed the intelligence during the Bush era but said Brennan passed it along because that was his job. [18]. His last post within the Intelligence Community was as director of the National Counterterrorism Center in 2004 and 2005, which incorporated information on terrorist activities across U.S. agencies.[3][19]

Brennan then left government service for a few years, becoming Chairman of the Intelligence and National Security Alliance (INSA) and the CEO of The Analysis Corporation(TAC) now renamed as Sotera Defense Solutions. He continued to lead TAC after its acquisition by Global Strategies Group in 2007 and its growth as the Global Intelligence Solutions division of Global’s North American technology business GTEC, before returning to government service with the Obama administration.[11] On May 2, 2011, Brennan represented a team that killed Osama Bin Laden. He described the moments watching the SEAL teams move into Osama’s compound as “one of the most anxiety filled times in the lives of the people assembled” and that “minutes passed like days”.[20] On January 7, 2013, Brennan was nominated by President Barack Obama to be director of the Central Intelligence Agency.

re: #176 Killgore Trout

I think Huntsman is too beaten down to try again next time. I don’t think the environment is going to be much better for him by then. He’s young, he might be able to wait out the crazy.

I’d like to see Huntsman working (again) in the current Administration.

He seemed to know what he was doing. Similar to Christie, who knew the difference between governance and politics during Christy.
