John McCain could teach a thing or two about spin and distorting records to the Clintons. In an Election where the Democrats and Independents have entered the early state “open” primary states to determine for the Republican party who the GOP candidate will be to run against their coronation of Hillary, it is clear that Conservatives have been discarded and jettisoned from the GOP – by design it would seem.
As Ann Coulter pointed out in her essay this week, McCain’s record shows he plays fast and loose with the truth – especially about his position on the Illegal Invasion from the South.
Of course, I might lie constantly too, if I were seeking the Republican presidential nomination after enthusiastically promoting amnesty for illegal aliens, Social Security credit for illegal aliens, criminal trials for terrorists, stem-cell research on human embryos, crackpot global warming legislation and free speech-crushing campaign-finance laws.
I might lie too, if I had opposed the Bush tax cuts, a marriage amendment to the Constitution, waterboarding terrorists and drilling in Alaska.
And I might lie if I had called the ads of the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth “dishonest and dishonorable.”
McCain angrily denounces the suggestion that his “comprehensive immigration reform” constituted “amnesty” — on the ludicrous grounds that it included a small fine. Even the guy who graduated fifth from the bottom of his class at the U.S. Naval Academy didn’t fall for this a few years ago.
In 2003, McCain told The Tucson Citizen that “amnesty has to be an important part” of any immigration reform. He also rolled out the old chestnut about America’s need for illegals, who do “jobs that American workers simply won’t do.”
McCain’s amnesty bill would have immediately granted millions of newly legalized immigrants Social Security benefits. He even supported allowing work performed as an illegal to count toward Social Security benefits as recently as a vote in 2006 — now adamantly denied by Mr. Straight Talk.
Of course McCain’s record goes further to the Left of any other candidate in the GOP – except for perhaps Mike Huckabee, who is essentially Bill Clinton with a bible in-hand.
Coulter is not the only staunch Conservative making notes of McCain’s corrosive effect on Conservatism, Talk radio hosts like Rush Limbaugh and Mark Levin have also voiced serious concerns about the effect a McCain nomination will have for the Republican party and the Conservative movment. Of course the battle within the GOP itself is being goaded by the mainstream media that all but declared Conservative radio irrelevant, that has many GOP Elites and McCain supporters telling Conservatives to “shut up” for the sake of the party – but as Mark Levin has written – now is NOT the time to shut up. It’s a PRIMARY for crying out loud! NOW is the time to decide who is the best standard-bearer of the party -based on principles, not on who can best win the horse race.
For that reason, a record counts. It is a history of the beliefs that really make up a candidate’s core thinking. What is being drummed loudly is his military service and his time as a POW. Yes, we are all indebted to McCain for his sacrifice, and he is a hero to the nation. Is that enough to overlook a political career that has not served the Conservative movement and actually infringed on Constitutional Rights such as Freedom of Political Speech? Michell Malkin reports connections McCain has with the Illegal Mexican lobby, and the Global Socialist George Soros – who has infiltrated and just about every mainstream media and reporting operation in the country. These things are noteworthy to consider when the two main issues of importance to most Americans: The War on Jihadists and Illegals – is being given the boot by political elites.
Shamnesty peddler John McCain taps former Mexican government official/shamnesty advocate Juan Hernandez as his presidential campaign Hispanic Outreach Director.
Hernandez is a fellow at McCain’s “Reform Institute.” What has he been working on there for the past year?
“Dr. Juan Hernandez serves as a Senior Fellow of the Institute’s Comprehensive Immigration Reform Initiative.”
That is: Shamnesty.
Among the immigration projects at McCain’s Reform Institute: An art contest in which students depicted their protests against a southern border fence.
The winner on the American side of the border?
…Via Discover the Networks, you’ll see that Soros’s OSI is a key open borders funder–providing support to the Mexican American Legal Defense and Education Fund; the Immigrant Legal Resource Center; the National Immigration Law Center; the National Immigration Forum; the National Council of La Raza; and the American Immigration Law Foundation.
Remind me again which party’s presidential nomination John McCain is running for?
