Patterico's Pontifications


Coulter on Amnesty

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 6:34 pm


Coulter comes on at 1:30. The amnesty discussion begins in earnest at 3:30, but watch it all, because she is delightful here — especially when Hannity tries to talk about other issues, and she says: “This better be about immigration.” And then unilaterally moves Hannity off of the other topic onto immigration.


You see, Ann Coulter has her eye on the ball. She understands that defeating amnesty is the most important issue right now. And she warns:

“You should know that John Boehner secretly wants to pass amnesty because his idiot consultants are telling him: ‘Oh, it’s going to be a great boon for Republicans having 30 million voters who will never vote for a Republican.'”


Edward Snowden Charged with Espionage

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 5:32 pm


Federal prosecutors have charged Edward Snowden, the man who admitted leaking top-secret details about U.S. surveillance programs, with espionage and theft of government property, according to a criminal complaint that was unsealed Friday in U.S. District Court in Virginia.

The United States has asked Hong Kong to detain Snowden on a provisional arrest warrant, The Washington Post reported, citing unnamed U.S. officials.

The complaint charges Snowden with theft of government property, unauthorized communication of national defense information and willful communication of classified intelligence to an unauthorized person — allegations that amount to espionage in the United States under the federal Espionage Act.

[Following is the sort of insightful observation that makes yours truly one of the premier bloggers on the Internets.]

Should he be extradited, his numerous admissions of culpability will make his defense considerably difficult.

Amnesty Will Pass in the Senate

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 7:09 am

The likely votes have been counted, and they can break a filibuster.

As best as I can tell, it’s now up to our teary-eyed leader in the House to refuse to bring this sham to a vote. That’s our only hope.

Are we feeling confident?

UPDATE: It’s good for the folks!

UPDATE x2: Well done by Laura Ingraham against Bill O’Reilly, who buys the narrative that if we don’t create 8 million new Democrat voters, we’re going to lose elections.
