It's New Year's Eve?

It's 8:48pm and I'm finishing my shrimp and broccoli at my desk from my favorite nearby Chinese place, which is closing its doors tonight. So sad. Sadder still, I suppose, that I'm sitting here at work on New Year's Eve. Perhaps, not. Those December 31st celebrations almost always seem to end up a dud.

For our 10pm news, I'm doing a "live shot" at the Bill and Hillary Clinton for their "New Year, New Beginnings Celebration" at Capitol Square in downtown Des Moines. Neither has a good track record of campaign punctuality. I hope they arrive BEFORE our 10pm news. The campaign has already today blamed snow for canceling an event in Waterloo and "aircraft issues" for downing a stop in Ottumwa. We'll see if Des Moines has better luck.
We'll also have to check on the spirits. The Des Moines Register just released its latest poll. Obama's party in Ames may be drinking the Kool-Aid a little more.

Updated: 1047pm. Hillary, Bill and Chelsea Clinton took the stage about 10am along with former Iowa Governor Tom Vilsack and his wife, Christie, and former Democratic National Committee Chair Terry McAuliffe. I'd guess 4-500 people surrounded them, although it was tough to estimate. McAuliffe started and introduced the rest. The former Prez talked, then the Senator. About seven minutes later, they said good-night. They left the stage. Most of the crowd left. So did we.

Illegal Immigration, Huckabee and the 2008 Election

This is basically the gist of Huckabee's immigration plan touchback provision:

He would repeal the multi-year baring of illegals to re-enter the U.S. for illegals who register during a 120-day period with Homeland Security and temporarily exit the country (for only a few days, at most). It is also highly likely that many would not even leave the country but would be allowed to go to their nearest consulate on American soil for paperwork.

They would face no penalty if they apply to immigrate back to U.S. (they'd be back in within just days). He would not utilize the current legal immigration law process for immigration to the U.S. but would set up special processing for these ‘special case formerly illegal’ immigrants. He also would reward these lawbreakers (and their law-breaking employers) by allowing the aliens to keep the very jobs they broke into the country and took. He wants them back in quick to slide back into the same jobs they had before their quick exit and return (touchback).

Huckabee will utilize every trick in the book to legalize illegal aliens. He's just a bit more deceptive, shifty and crafty in how he hides the fact that he will provide amnesty. By all means, don't take my word on this if you are skeptical. Dig deep on Huckabee and look at the man behing the curtain. I'm betting you won't really care for what you see.

Huckabee has stated that our economy would collapse without the presence of illegal aliens here. Really? My oh did we manage to survive as a nation and grow our economy these past two centuries and well into the 1970's before the accelerated mass entries of illegal aliens? In 1986, our spineless Congressmen and Senators decided instead of dealing with the problem, they'd just give amnesty to the illegals so their incompetence, corruption, greed and dysfunction could be just swept under the rug. Then in 2007, they tried the same thing, but this time an educated, forceful, awake and fed up public citizenry stopped them in their tracks. Now their tookus is in a sling as they don't know what to do, so basically they are doing what they've been doing over the last 30 years...nothing as far as border security and immigration enforcement.

2008 is a pivitol year, likely even a tipping point, in the history of America. Will we continue to be a strong, sovereign nation ruled by law or will we let the invasion continue until America's slide into anarchy is unstoppable?

We need to elect a leader as President who will protect the value of U.S. citizenship, work for the citizens of America, fiercely protect our sovereignty, stop the march to globlism and the formation of the NAU, and solve our illegal immigration problem. That does not involve granting amnesty to illegal aliens. Huckabee is not your man if you care for those issues. Neither is McCain, Ghuliani or any of the Democrats.

Just remember to pick a candidate to support not on what they say they will do but on what they have actually done.
