CQ Radio: John Hawkins On Immigration

blog radio

Today on CQ Radio (2 pm CT), we'll talk to John Hawkins of Right Wing News about the immigration reform package. He's advocating a turf war with Republican politicians who support the legislation, and we'll talk about the perils and pitfalls of that dynamic. We'll also pick his brain about the presidential race, especially in light of this compromise.

Want to join the conversation? Call 646-652-4889!

UPDATE: Great show - John's a great guest. Be sure to listen on the download.

I'll be on Rick Moran's show in just a moment -- be sure to tune in!

I'm not calling in. I haven't got my radio, on.

But, still, if you're open to comments, I have a strange feeling McCain is running for the presidential nomination on the DONK'S STAGE. Not the one that will be happening with the GOP.


Because the donks have no talent, right now, that can run and win much. And, TWO PERCENT is not the advantage you think it is. AIN'T.

But McCain is getting free shots at all the other contendahs. Plus, Fred Thompson.

Doesn't mean McCain has traction.

Or even a prayer.

Let alone what the health factors are; as up ahead just about anything can happen to the ship's sails as it toodles into mainstream waters. Looking for voters, to haul away.

But I think Fred's right. Immigration, as a bill, FAILS, ahead.

And, McCain? Well, as he goes down, he's looking to clobber what will be his competition in 2008.

How can he grab this brass ring?

First, you jump up on the carosel.

Then, you look to strap yourself onto a wooden horse. And, lean over as far as you can go. At each turn, you can get "one ring." But if it ain't brass? No free rides for you.

What prevents McCain from jumping ship? His ship is on the land. It's stuck. It's mired. And, he's got "fwends" in the senate. Some may even have a brains. Who knows?

You'd think anyone who'd try to embrace Ted Kennedy, would be put off by his girth. AND, his breath. Cause I gotta say, few people have livers like Ted Kennedy's. Awash in more gin than got sold, ever, by bootleggers.

Well, there are no real advantages in politics.

Just headlines.

The best candidates can control what they get back, because they're clever. And, so far? Seems Fred Thompson knows a thing or two about camera angles. And, being clever. And, he didn't even have to light his cigar.

Well? What do you think many Americans are waiting for?

The freak show's boring. I think the fireworks should commence, soon. Grabbing the headlines away from the scoundrels who pump propaganda for news.

Anyway? On McCain. I'm either right. Or wrong. I just wouldn't bet money that he'd walk away. Guy's looking fer somethin.

While Bush is worth nothing. Go figa. Biggest pulpit in the world, and the dunce can't get beyond "let's have a party for the queen."

While I had thought Ron Paul was a gay sex star. Who knew he was a toothless wonder. As if murtha, on the other side, wasn't enough.

Leave it to Barnum to figure out how to sell peanuts and popcorn to the crowds.

So, for my two-cents? The bet's on McCain to run as a donk. No, they won't like him. But they'll pick him, because they think he could "win." At least more votes than the flying pig.

Dude, when bloggers interview other bloggers, it's a very slow day for the content and I am so not tuning in.

Will you guys be comparing pajamas?

Ed, could we not have an RSS feed from BlogTalkRadion rather than a bunch of individually-downloadable WMA files? Such as is done by TownHall? Would make life a bunch easier.

Geoffry, my site at BTR has an RSS feed on it, but I'll add it to the sidebar in a few minutes. Thanks for the feedback!

I'm afraid this bill will likely become law - it's too late.

There are too many special interests from business's desire for cheap labor, the church wanting to fill it's pews, lawyers always wanting to defend illegal aliens and give them all the rights of US citizens, the media who won't allow an honest debate on the real issues, Spanish language now everywhere in our society, etc.

The only real solution would be deportation of them all - Operation Wetback II - but that will (sadly) never happen.

They're allowed to come here because the elites want to create a kind of North American Union with no borders between Canada, USA and Mexico. Our sovereignty is all but gone. Our fathers and grandfathers fought and bled for independence and liberty but now our nation stands for raising the standard of living in Mexico. How pathetic.
