VERY IN DEPTH INTERVIEW ON THE DETAILS OF THE IMMIGRATION BILL: Sen. Ted Cruz: Immigration Bill Not Designed to Fix Problems - This Bill 'Weakens Current Law' - Hannity - Fox News.

 (2) The Political Mr. Comey - Obama's FBI Nominee has a Record of Prosecutorial Excess and Bad Judgment - Wall Street Journal - President Obama on Friday nominated James Comey to run the FBI, and the former prosecutor and deputy attorney general is already garnering media effusions reserved for any Republican who fell out publicly with the Bush Administration. Forgive us if we don't join this Beltway beatification. Any potential FBI director deserves scrutiny, since the position has so much power and is susceptible to ruinous misjudgments and abuse. That goes double with Mr. Comey, a nominee who seems to think the job of the federal bureaucracy is to oversee elected officials, not the other way around, and who had his own hand in some of the worst prosecutorial excesses of the last decade. *** The list includes his overzealous pursuit, as U.S. Attorney for New York's Southern District, of banker Frank Quattrone amid the post-Enron political frenzy of 2003. Mr. Comey never did indict Mr. Quattrone on banking-related charges, but charged him instead with obstruction of justice and witness tampering based essentially on a single ambiguous email.  Read more.......


(3) Tides Foundation Behind Push to Restore Felon Voting Rights in Virginia - Washington Times - Who is funding the efforts to get ex-felons registered to vote in Virginia? Apparently it’s the George Soros-funded Tides Foundation. The foundation has long supported felony rights restoration by writing large checks to groups that work with states to register former felons. In the past, the foundation set up the Civic Participation Fund, which was aimed at aiding social-change organizations focused in new-majority communities that “need money, and need it fast,” the Tides website says. The fund, formerly known as the Voter Action Fund, granted more than $8 million to advocacy groups “working to address the legal, procedural, and technological barriers to electoral participation.” Two groups that have received funding from Tides — Advancement Project and the Virginia New Majority — are working with Virginia officials to restore felons’ voting rights, according to documents provided by the D.C.-based Capital Research Center, a nonprofit that focuses on the politics behind nonprofit operations.

(4) Mr. Rubio Goes to Washington - American Thinker Sen. Marco Rubio has many fine qualities. He is a genuinely nice guy. His conservative attitude is genuine, and his gift of expression is exceptional. The enthusiasm he brings to the conservatives and the Republican Party has been wonderful. He holds the right core beliefs, and he has the potential to be the voice for a new generation of conservatives. In 2010, I campaigned for him, phone banked for him, canvassed neighborhoods for him, and attended his rallies. He has been a great spokesman for the party, the Republican answer to Barack Obama. But now he is my senator doing the business of legislating, and his inexperience is showing. His efforts run counter to every conservative I know, and it is becoming painfully obvious that he is not ready for the presidency. Democrats may put an empty-suit into the White House, but Republicans will not. Gee, who knew that a young freshman senator could be manipulated by the likes of Chuck Schumer and John McCain? Who knew that a tea party favorite could be cajoled into joining the compromising Gang of Eight? Read more........
