Gubernatorial Candidate Meg Whitman: “Moon Beam” in a Skirt?


By
John W. Lillpop

Meg Whitman
is running for governor
of California
. Which, considering the state of that state, means
she is either a glutton
for punishment, or delusional, or both.

Whitman runs under the R
brand against Democrat Jerry
Brown
who was elected governor 35 years ago, who was Mayor of
Oakland for eight years, and who currently “serves” as California’s Attorney General.

Jerry
Brown has been, and continues to be, an over-the-hill public menace
that needs to be retired, either voluntarily, or by voters come
November.

Unfortunately, Meg Whitman’s views on the crucial issue
of illegal aliens are indistinguishable from those of moon beam Brown.

Whitman
made that perfectly clear in a recent article titled “Americans
Must Come
Together to Address the Problem of Illegal
Immigration
.” (Reference 1).

Excerpts follow:

She
said, in part:

“What has bothered Latinos for too
long is the harsh rhetoric around the immigration debate. Too often, the
debate has-been tinge with hurtful words or worse
signaling intolerance to many Latinos.”

The Inconvenient Truth:

The
“harsh rhetoric” that Whitman laments is not directed at legal
immigration.

Rather, it is the result of the American people reaching
the breaking point with the invasion of America by penniless,
uneducated, unskilled, non-English speaking aliens from south of our
borders.

The debate is about homeland security, American sovereignty, the
rule of law, economic and social stability, and good old fashioned
common sense.

The debate is about our nation spending $113
billion a year on millions of aliens who have no business being here, at
a time when the national debt is soaring out of control and our nation
is broke.

The debate is about the cost of educating illegal
aliens, a cost that significantly impedes the ability of educators to
provide a quality education for citizens.

The debate is about
California
spending $20 billion a year on illegal aliens while the state slithers
towards bankruptcy.

The debate is about elected officials who
refuse to enforce the law.

We Californians are indeed
“intolerant”– when it comes to those who refuse to honor and enforce
our borders and laws. We the people have every right to demand that
government secure the borders, enforce the laws, and remove illegal
aliens through deportation, as provided for in existing law.

If
that makes us “intolerant,” then so be it!

She said, in
part:

“Former governor Brown seems to share many of
my positions on immigration. He is also against Proposition 187 and is
opposed to the new Arizona
immigration law
. It is clear when we examine our positions on
immigration, there is little in what Jerry Brown and I are in
disagreement.”

The Inconvenient Truth:

Being
of the same persuasion as Jerry
Brown
on any issue should automatically disqualify any
alleged Republican from seeking elective office.

Fact is
Whitman’s opposition to California’s Proposition 187 is nothing more
than hypocritical trolling for votes, a hideous practice most often
associated with Democrats.

For the record Prop. 187 was approved
by voters with nearly a 2-1 margin. The voter -approved measure was
circumvented by a liberal judge and a corrupt liberal Governor (Gray
Davis) who broke his campaign promise to honor the will of the people.

Prop.
187 would have denied benefits to illegal aliens. The idea was to take
away the incentive for invaders to come to California in the first
place.

Take away the free health care, food stamps, education,
housing and other welfare items paid for by taxpayers, and the flow of
illegal aliens across the border would slow to a mere trickle.

Whitman’s
opposition to SB 1070 is equally
outrageous, particularly for one who claims to be opposed to illegal
invasions.

She and others claim that these laws are unacceptable
because they are “divisive.” And 20-40 million illegal aliens among us
is not?

She said, in part:

“We must
find a fair and practical solution to the status of the millions of undocumented immigrants
currently living in the United States.”

The
Inconvenient Truth:

Undocumented immigrants, Ms.
Whitman?

Use of that misleading term is a sure indicator of
terminal fogginess on this issue.

Indeed “undocumented immigrant"
is intended to deliberately skirt the issue of criminal invasion.

The
fact is that illegal aliens Are NOT immigrants!

Migrating
to America (legally) is, and should be, a long, drawn-out procedure
meant to protect the interests of American citizens. It involves more
than simply
jumping a fence and heading north in pursuit of free health care,
education, food stamps and other handouts paid for by taxpayers.

Legal
immigration means enduring rigorous hurdles like background checks to
detect a criminal background or possible ties to terrorists.

It
means medical examinations to detect diseases still prevalent in
third-world nations, but long since eradicated here, and

It means
proof of financial solvency so as to prevent newcomers from becoming a
burden on U.S. taxpayers.

Those who have jumped the fence into
America in order to avoid our immigration checks are not immigrants.

In
truth, people who come here illegally leave America vulnerable to
undetected crime, terrorism, disease, and financial devastation. And
they have no legal or moral justification for being here.

Why
engage in silly word games and euphemistic cover-ups?

People here
illegally are illegal aliens and need to leave,
or be deported, as provided for in existing law.

Bottom
Line:

Meg Whitman’s “moon beam” position on illegal
aliens means that she is not Republican and not conservative. Not even
close.

Vote for Whitman just because of the R next to her name?

No,
and hell no!
