Comments

Let me know if Legal Insurrection ever happens to make it to the northern Indiana area, or at least Chicago, or Indianapolis.

    Kemberlee Kaye in reply to DouglasJBender. | September 22, 2019 at 10:24 pm

    Hopefully next year!

      Chicago? Indianapolis? Likely one of those two, I imagine. Chicago is about 90 minutes away from me, while Indianapolis is about 2 1/2 hours away (based on how I drive). If you were to decide instead on South Bend, Indiana (home of Notre Dame!!, and Mayor Pete!!), that would be only about 20 minutes from me. If you chose Elkhart, Indiana, I would owe you one.

Maybe consider the nw side of Houston. Could be a good time…

Sniff, sniff. You didn’t include DFW at all. I so feel like putting on my pouty face.

Well… I’ve been following this site for more than six years (maybe closer to 8). Before now, I’ve never registered to leave any comments…. but LI is coming to Houston? That changes things!

Austin? Don’t you have to issue a trigger warning or something? Oh, an LI troll will spread the word.

Now we’ll be able to measure the true nature of LI’s reach and influence, by the size of the Antifa protests outside the meeting venues. 🙂

It may seem ironic to ask…But do you have plans to be in the Greater Upstate/Ithaca, NY area??

WELL LOOKIE WHAT I FOUND. AOC RACIST->AOC SIGNED THE BRAND NEW CONGRESS PLEDGE: https://brandnewcongress.org/plan also see AOC https://web.archive.org/web/20171026202709/http://brandnewcongress.org:80/candidates

“Every candidate we recruit, regardless of party, will be a firm believer in the Brand New Congress platform and pledge to enact it once elected. “

This was Ocasio Cortez 2018 platform. LOL This is what she pledged to. They thought this was a better plan than Trumps to keep illegal Immigrants from coming in the country. They wanted E-Verify so that no employer could hire an Illegal Immigrant. Better than ICE raids. lol

Guess whos platform this came from : “Truly effective border control is about high-tech night vision cameras, paying staff to monitor them, and non-stop enforcement that will let potential immigrants know that the only way to work in the U.S. is to enter through legal, safe channels”

===================================================================
.IMPLEMENT AN EMPLOYMENT VERIFICATION SYSTEM

Like E-Verify that prevents employers from hiring undocumented workers in the first place. This would be far better than the current regime of “I-9 raids” that make immigrants vulnerable to abuse by employers and rarely result in serious penalties for employers.

ESTABLISH LEGAL IMMIGRATION CENTERS AROUND THE WORLD

To recruit the best working families in Latin America and the Caribbean and elsewhere to join the American family. Not only does this provide a safer path to America for potential immigrants, but it enables us to finally be proactive about our immigration policy, instead of always being reactive.

SECURE THE BORDERS

We want immigrants to come to America — but we do not want them coming here in unsafe and illegal ways. Today, too many potential immigrants risk their lives by illicitly crossing desert borders and paying human smugglers. To fix this problem, we must establish a safer way for potential immigrants to come to America — and we also must secure the border. Of course, Trump’s border wall will be completely ineffective (not to mention outrageously expensive). Truly effective border control is about high-tech night vision cameras, paying staff to monitor them, and non-stop enforcement that will let potential immigrants know that the only way to work in the U.S. is to enter through legal, safe channels.

Perhpas schedule an LI event in a hotel meeting room adjacent to the one Twillie would be using the share her view of the Gibsons trial. Four dozen whole wheat glazed donuts and you would totally own her audience.

You’re killing us heading to the liberal cities of Texas! Unfortunately, I’ve got students during the week! Maybe the next trip!

Come to Columbus Ohio, only 2 hours from the belly of the beast, Oberlin, and only one hour from Yellow Springs, the home of Antioch College where the hair is purple, the noses pierced, the minds atrophied, the opinions predictably boring, the cars heavy with “coexist” bumper stickers, and where it is always 1968.

Be careful in Austin. They are doing their best to duplicate California’s homeless situation, tent cities on the sidewalks and all.

Houston is doable for me though I’ll see if I can make it there. You pick the two purple Texas strongholds on purpose?
