‘Pubs to Holder: It is the jobs stupid, from Byron York, Washington Examiner :
There are many areas in which Republicans and [Attorney General Eric] Holder are likely to disagree, but the most contentious could be immigration, starting with the enforcement of federal laws to prevent the employment of illegal immigrants. Ask Smith what he’ll be investigating, and it’s the first thing he mentions. “One initial hearing will be on work site enforcement,” he says. “We want to find out why the administration is not doing more to enforce current laws. Workplace enforcement has dropped 70 percent under the Obama administration.”
To Smith, that’s a bad idea at any time, but particularly so in a period of 9.8 percent unemployment. “We need every available job in America to go to legal workers, to citizens and legal immigrants,” he says.
Good sign that the ‘pubs are going after the inane Obama Administration anti-jobs policies. Every illegal, put out of a job, means one more job for honest, hardworking, tax paying United States citizens.
Death in the City:
NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP ) – Archbishop Timothy Dolan is calling for efforts to make abortions in New York City “rare.”
Dolan gathered with other religious leaders on Thursday to draw attention to the city’s high abortion rate. The city health department last month released statistics that showed 39 percent of pregnancies ended with induced termination in 2009
Hat tip and More, Blog Prof :
Uh – isn’t that what Democrats have been saying forever now? Safe and rare? Well, abortion is neither. Every abortion kills a life, so it’s not safe. And certainly Democrats don’t want it to be rare either. Their vote for ObamaCare proved that fact decisively
Run Rudy (not), Rudy Giuliani feigns interest in yet another presidential run, from New York Post :
Confident that he’d have a chance to win, Rudy Giuliani is rounding up his top political advisers for a possible 2012 presidential run, sources tell Page Six.
Sources say the tough-talking former mayor “thinks the Republican race will be populated with far-right candidates like Mitt Romney, Sarah Palin and Mike Huckabee, and there’s opportunity for a moderate candidate with a background in national security.”
Giuliani has even scheduled a trip to New Hampshire for next month to meet with constituents in the state that failed him in January 2008, when he placed fourth in the Republican presidential primary.
Despite a ‘pubs surge last year in New York State, the ‘rats retained all state wide office. What Senator Chucky Schumer, Kristen Gillibrand and Andrew “Maior IV” Cuomo all have in common is Giuliani was unwilling to challenge any one of them. So New York is left with a strutting egotist, and wet eared rookie in the Senate and a recycled never was in the statehouse. Sorry Rudy, but when opportunity came knocking, you ducked out.
Dumb chick, Ann Woolner is upset because Justice Antonin Scalia
believe the Fourteenth means what it meant when it was ratified, from Bloomberg :
When the Amendment was written, “Nobody ever thought that that’s what it meant,” Scalia said.
Here we have a perfect example of what’s so very wrong about so-called originalism, the theory Scalia claims to follow. The idea is that the Constitution should be interpreted according to its authors’ original intent, no changes allowed.
The 14th Amendment wasn’t meant to protect women, religious minorities, ethnic groups, and certainly not homosexuals. Written after the Civil War, its single aim was legal rights for newly freed slaves.
The founders didn’t envision the Constitution as vehicle to allow for sharia law. Would Woolner willing don the burka if five of the nine perverts in black robes, b/k/a the Supreme Court ruled in favor of sharia. I hardly think not.
And hypocritical chick as well, while in 2011 Woolner moans falsely about women not being considered persons, in 2009 was more than willing to consider real women to be non-person, just so long as they had not yet been born from Bloomberg :
That’s one of the ways many birth-control pills and intrauterine devices work . And if that’s abortion, millions of women who didn’t know they were pregnant — who medically weren’t pregnant — have killed their unborn children.
Folks within the federal health bureaucracy have drafted a rule that would give “human being in utero” status to the itty bitty zygote.
Not quite half as big as a grain of salt, the zygote is the cluster of cells formed after sperm penetrates egg. It travels toward the uterus and either keeps going, leaving the woman’s body, or attaches itself to her uterine wall some five to 10 days after fertilization.
If it latches on, the zygote becomes an embryo. Eight weeks later the embryo becomes a fetus and, eventually, a baby.
That mere fertilized egg is also a person, and no less real and no less deserving of protection by our laws merely because he can’t post an article on a blog,yet.
