QOTD: "...consider this week's Washington Post column by Jonathan H Adler: What Does It Take To Convince Libertarians And Conservatives That Climate Change Is A Problem?

Mr Adler is a conservative and a lawyer and a former colleague of mine who has written about Big Climate enforcer Michael E Mann's ongoing defamation suit against me - sometimes helpfully, sometimes in that faintly irritating way that American legal types have of explaining how your case raises many fascinating and arcane jurisprudential issues that make consuming a decade of your life over it a small price to pay.

But never mind all that, he says bitterly. Look at it this way. How often do you see mainstream newspaper headlines like that the other way round? "What does it take to convince liberals and socialists that Islamic terrorism is a problem? ...that a $20 trillion national debt is a problem? ...that partial-birth abortion is a problem?" The left has the program, and the right is constantly enjoined to get with it" --Mark Steyn

DUDE: Iranian Opposition Leader Calls Obama "the son of a Shiite father [... he is] the Iranian lobby in America"

The indispensable Robert Spencer calls our attention to this report from MEMRI (the Middle East Media Research Institute):

On March 25, during an interview on Hiwar TV, broadcasting from London, Syrian writer Muhydin Lazikani said that “all the childhood memories of the man who rules the White House are Shiite memories” and that “that is why he is so anxious for Iran to emerge victorious.”

...On April 10, London-based Iranian opposition activist Abu Muntasir Al-Baloushi said: “Barack Hussein Obama is the son of a Shiite father… Some people call him the Iranian lobby in America.”

Which reminded me of a fascinating comment from October 9, 2008 on Daniel Pipes' site that had popped back around due to coincidence or sheer happenstance (courtesy of BadBlue News).

BOOM: Rating the GOP field on Amnesty

Over at American Thinker, Pedro Gonzales offers an excellent overview of the GOP field's positions on Amnesty. Here's the executive summary: only one candidate has never changed his position on the topic.

Jeb Bush

"...Jeb, as we all know, supports amnesty for illegal aliens, and he's proud of it. If he were running in Honduras, I would vote for him in a minute..."

Marco Rubio

"...Rubio co-authored a bill that would have given amnesty to illegal aliens. He has since tried to walk back from that..."

Chris Christie

"...Chris has been cagey on the subject, but one thing is clear: he ordered his appointee to Frank Lautenberg's Senate seat to vote for Marco Rubio's amnesty bill..."

Rick Perry

"...Perry is tough on illegal immigrants! He sent a handful of national guard troops to the border! (With orders not to arrest any illegals.) But as for those illegals who manage to slip through this imposing gauntlet, Perry rewards them with taxpayer-subsidized college educations. If he's paying for illegals to go to college, I think it's safe to say he supports amnesty..."

Mike Huckabee

"...in February 2007, Huckabee ... stated, 'We shouldn't have amnesty where we just say, "Fine, everybody's good, we're going to let it go.' We should have a process where people can pay the penalties, step up and accept responsibility for not being here legally..."

Scott Walker

"...Walker backed the McCain-Kennedy amnesty bill in 2006... [and] went as far as to tell POLITICO in 2013 that he supported a pathway to citizenship for undocumented immigrants..."

Rand Paul

"...Paul claims he's against amnesty, but he voted for an amendment to give 2 million 'temporary' visas to illegal aliens annually...who could then apply for citizenship. It looks like amnesty to me..."

Ted Cruz

"Cruz is the only major candidate who has never supported or endorsed amnesty."

As they say on the real blogs, read the whole thing.

QOTD: "On Monday, 144 people were rescued by the Italian coastguard when the boat on which they were fleeing Libya capsized in the Mediterranean. Arriving homeless and without prospects in a strange land, these were — relatively speaking — the lucky ones. As many as 400 are thought to have drowned. Add them to the tally. Last year more than 3,000 died in the Mediterranean trying to get to the West. It has become a phenomenon of our times.

We do not hear much about life in the supposedly liberated Libya, but the fact that entire families were willing to risk the treacherous crossing gives a fair idea...

...As Libya collapses into violence, its great friends in London and Washington have effectively turned a blind eye." --The Spectator

Obama toadie Jeb Bush backs confirmation of radical leftist Loretta Lynch as Attorney General

By Warner Todd Huston

Obama has been trying to get Loretta Lynch confirmed as the new head of the Department of Justice but the Senate has been dragging its feet.

This is a woman who has refused to say if she would investigate Hillary’s email violations and said that illegals have every right to work here in the USA like legal citizens do.But Jeb says she deserves to be confirmed.

Answering questions at a town hall with New Hampshire primary voters at the Snowshoe Club, Bush, an all-but-announced Republican presidential candidate, stopped short of explicitly calling for Lynch’s confirmation. Her nomination to replace Attorney General Eric Holder has been stalled for an unusually long 160 days over a Senate showdown on an unrelated sex-trafficking bill that includes a controversial abortion provision.

“I think that Presidents have the right to pick their team,” Bush told a crowd of about 95 voters and a horde of media.

Once again we see Jeb leaning left. He is a big government guy on education with his support of the failed Common Core policy and he is an open borders type who openly supports Obama’s un-Constitutional amnesty.

ISIS ON THE SOUTHERN BORDER: Judicial Watch blows the lid off another Obama scandal

By Tom Fitton

Judicial Watch is proving itself the most resourceful and impactful educational organizations in the nation. No other media outlet, no congressional committee, and no other non-governmental organization can match JW’s successes in ferreting out what the government doesn’t want you know. On the issue of terrorism and the border, JW’s journalism this week had an international impact. On April 14, our Corruption Chronicles published the following extraordinary report on ISIS operations in Mexico and in the United States:

ISIS is operating a camp just a few miles from El Paso, Texas, according to Judicial Watch sources that include a Mexican Army field grade officer and a Mexican Federal Police Inspector.

The exact location where the terrorist group has established its base is around eight miles from the U.S. border in an area known as “Anapra” situated just west of Ciudad Juárez in the Mexican state of Chihuahua. Another ISIS cell to the west of Ciudad Juárez, in Puerto Palomas, targets the New Mexico towns of Columbus and Deming for easy access to the United States, the same knowledgeable sources confirm.

During the course of a joint operation last week, Mexican Army and federal law enforcement officials discovered documents in Arabic and Urdu, as well as “plans” of Fort Bliss – the sprawling military installation that houses the US Army’s 1st Armored Division. Muslim prayer rugs were recovered with the documents during the operation.

QOTD: "Tax day is upon us again. But this year it’s different. This year, on top of the frustrating reminder that Americans are giving too much of their income to fund too many wasteful government programs, families are now being forced to pay the Obamacare tax for the first time.

Instead of government-run healthcare that increases taxes, limits options, and puts the government between patients and their doctors, imagine a free-market system that enables healthcare to be personal, portable and affordable. Instead of a tax code that crushes innovation and inflicts burdens on families struggling to make ends met, imagine a simple, flat tax that lets Americans fill out their taxes on a postcard. Imagine a tax code that is simple enough to abolish the IRS.

More of Americans’ hard-earned wages should be able to stay in their wallets so they can be free to invest more in their families and businesses, not in growing big government.

Tax reform is crucial to reversing our current economic stagnation, sparking economic growth, and expanding opportunity. I’m running for President because I believe that together, we can make D.C. listen, we can repeal Obamacare, we can implement fundamental tax reform, and we can restore our nation as a place that champions prosperity and opportunity for all." --Sen. Ted Cruz
