Today Glenn Beck interviewed Michelle Maulkin who revealed just the tip of the iceberg of insidious corruption of John McCain that would take your breath away. His chief “Hispanic Advisor” is Juan Hernandez.

Dr. Juan Hernandez serves as a Senior Fellow of the Institute’s Comprehensive Immigration Reform Initiative. Dr. Hernandez formerly served as a cabinet member to President Vicente Fox as Director of the Office for Mexicans Living Abroad. He is the first American to serve Mexico’s government at this level. He left his cabinet position to create The Organization for Hispanic Advancement, (HispanA, a non-profit 501c3). Dr. Hernández’s recent book, The New American Pioneers, is an authoritative, in depth look at the complex issues related to Mexican immigration.

He is the man who “formerly” worked for Mexican President Vincente Fox. He is doing everything he can to keep borders open and to indoctrinate all Mexicans to remember their first allegiance is to Mexico not America. He is also doing everything he can to bring about the “North American Block” in other words, the North American Union.

You need to do everything you can to wrap your mind around this. Our nation’s sovereignty is horribly at stake.

Read the full transcript here, but take a look at this:

GLENN: Canada, Mexico and America as a block. That’s who this guy is. Michelle?
MALKIN: A block, not a region. He said it many times. He also, when he worked for this Mexican bureaucracy called the presidential office for Mexican abroad, what he did was he spent his time traveling all across our country lobbying local, state and federal officials for driver’s license for illegal aliens. He defended his operators who were carrying illegal aliens to the country and who promoted extending banking privileges here in the United States to illegal aliens, lobbied to get lower rates for them so that they could send home billions of dollars in remittances back to their country. The guy does not believe in borders. He is a senior fellow at something called the Reform Institute which is a think tank that John McCain founded and it has come under scrutiny by the mainstream media because it underscores John McCain’s hypocrisy not just on open borders but also on campaign finance because he’s used his supposedly nonpartisan, nonprofit thinking to solicit donations from big donors who he then goes and crusades for while he’s sitting on Senate committees. At this reform institute which is in part funded with George Soros money, Juan Hernandez was in charge of leading the lobbying campaign for John McCain’s amnesty effort last year. And this reform institute also sponsored an art contest for students where they spent their time demonizing the border. And you can go and look. I linked this on my website, to all of the art that compares the walls our borders and our border fences to the Berlin wall which keeps people in instead of walling people out to prevent invasion, to prevent undermining our sovereignty, to prevent encroaching of our laws. And for McCain to have the gall to stand there and tell that voter in Florida who, by the way, learned about this Juan Hernandez thing by looking at our research on the Internet, for him to say that he supports securing the border first when he’s got a guy outreaching to illegal aliens to persuade them to make John McCain President? It’s more than nauseating. I have an ulcer.
GLENN: Michelle, I mean, I don’t think — I just don’t think I have ever seen, well, at least on the GOP side I don’t think I have seen anything more insidious than this kind of stuff. I mean, this is Bill Clinton insidiousness. This is somebody who is taking and wrapping themselves around an issue and trying to convince the American people that he’s doing one thing and he is doing exactly the opposite behind our back.
If John McCain would get into office and this stuff would happen, I really honestly think, Michelle, and talk me down from this tree, I think John McCain is more dangerous even than Hillary Clinton because at least Hillary Clinton has Bill Clinton to make her triangulate eventually. There will be no stopping between John McCain and the Progressives of going down a road that is massive internationalists.

There is supposed to be another meeting of the “Three Amigos” in the next few weeks, but I’m unable to find a news report on that. Bush mentioned this in his State of the Union.

At any rate, spend some time looking into this and visit Glenn Beck’s site to read the full transcript here.

Tonight, Governor Mitt Romney earned an impressive victory in Michigan as tens of thousands of voters cast their ballot for conservative change in Washington.  Elections are about the future and Governor Romney has the experience, vision and values to build a stronger America.  Tonight’s victory is a victory for optimism over Washington-style pessimism.  With the announcement of today’s results, Governor Romney made the following remarks to supporters, volunteers and the American people.

Governor Mitt Romney:  “Well, tonight, tonight marks the beginning of a comeback, a comeback for America.  Only a week ago, a win looked like it was impossible, but then you got out and told America what they needed to hear.  You said we would fight for every job.  You said that we would fight to get health care for all Americans.  You said we’d fight to secure our border.  You said you’d fight for us to be able to get lower taxes for middle-income Americans, and Michigan heard, and Michigan voted tonight. Congratulations! 

“Tonight proves that you can’t tell an American that there’s something that they just can’t do because Americans can do whatever they set their hearts on.  Tonight is a victory of optimism over Washington-style pessimism.  Tonight, we are celebrating here in Michigan, I’ve got to tell you that.  Guess what they’re doing in Washington?  They’re worrying, because they realize, the lobbyists and the politicians realize, that America now understands that Washington is broken, and we’re going to do something about it.

“America understands that Washington has promised that they’d secure our borders, but they haven’t. Washington told us that they would live by high ethical standards, but they haven’t.  Washington told us that they’d fix Social Security, but they haven’t.  Washington told us they’d get us better health care and better education, but they haven’t.  Washington told us they’d get us a tax break for middle income Americans, but they haven’t.  Washington told us that they’d cut back on the earmarks and the pork-barrel spending, but they haven’t.  And Washington told us they’d reduce our dependence on foreign oil, but they haven’t.  And who’s going to get the job done?  We are!

“Guys, it was not very far from right here that Ann and I and our family behind us began our campaign at the Henry Ford Museum of Innovation.  Wow that’s powerful, I’ll tell you.  At the Museum of Innovation, we said that we’re going to take innovation and change to Washington, recognizing that there’s no way that an insider in Washington is going to turn Washington inside out.  But we’re going to do that. American voters said that knowing how America works is more important than knowing how Washington works.

“And what we’re going to see in the next few days is Democrats saying that they’re the party of change. You’re going to hear Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama and John Edwards saying that they’re the party of change.  And I think they would bring change to America, just not the kind we want.  I think they take their inspiration from the Europe of old: big government, big brother, big taxes.  They fundamentally in their hearts believe that America is great because we have a great government, and we do have a great government, but that’s not what makes us the best nation, the strongest nation, the greatest nation on Earth.  What makes us such a great nation is the American people.  I take my inspiration from Ronald Reagan and George Herbert Walker Bush, who took their inspiration from the American people – hard-working American people, people who believed in opportunity, who loved education, God-fearing people, people who also love their families, people deeply patriotic.  It is that characteristic of the American people that makes us the most powerful nation on Earth.  Ronald Reagan, George Herbert Walker Bush said we are a great and good people, it’s exactly what we are.  It’s why we will always be the most powerful nation on Earth.

“Now, you heard right here in Michigan, our campaign, we said we were going to strengthen our military with additional troops and better equipment and better care for our veterans when they come home.  We also said that we’re going to strengthen our families.  We said we’re going to strengthen the economy.  I will never accept defeat for any industry here in America, we’ll fight for every job.  

“I have a couple of questions for you.  Is Washington, D.C., broken?”

Crowd:  “Yes!”

Governor Romney:  “Can it be fixed?”

Crowd:  “Yes!”

Governor Romney:  “Are we the team that’s going to get the job done?”

Crowd:  “Yes!”

Governor Romney:  “Alright, let’s take this campaign to South Carolina and Nevada and Florida and all over the country, and let’s take it all the way to the White House!  Thank you so much!”

“Thirdly, I think the humane thing to do here is to give the people that are here and are working and have no law problems, except that they’re not here legally, a chance to work their way into legal citizenship. … It’s also consistent with the bill that Senator McCain supported in the Senate. I think it’s the right thing to do, and so does Hillary.” – President Bill Clinton (Pres. Bill Clinton, Hillary For President Campaign Event, Bow, NH, 1/5/08)

In New Hampshire On Saturday, President Clinton Said He And Sen. Hillary Clinton Agree With Sen. McCain’s Immigration Plan:

President Clinton: Hillary And I Agree With Sen. McCain’s Immigration Bill. PRESIDENT BILL CLINTON: “Thirdly, I think the humane thing to do here is to give the people that are here and are working and have no law problems, except that they’re not here legally, a chance to work their way into legal citizenship. You know, the vast majority of these people are completely law abiding, and they pay taxes, even, but they’re not here lawfully. … I talk to people, you know, and I try to figure out what’s going on. I think that is the fairer system. It’s also consistent with the bill that Senator McCain supported in the Senate. I think it’s the right thing to do, and so does Hillary.” (Pres. Bill Clinton, Hillary For President Campaign Event, Bow, NH, 1/5/08)

Fox News’ Carl Cameron: “Romney was seated in the middle, and he was in the middle of every exchange. He stuck to his guns and fired several good shots of his own. He let almost no charge go un-rebutted and pivoted to offense effectively on many. As far as debating tactics, poise and execution are concerned he won.” (Carl Cameron, “Mitt In The Middle,” FOX’s Cameron’s Corner, www.cameron.blogs.foxnews.com, Posted 1/7/08)

  • Cameron: “He withstood withering condescension from his rivals, tough questions from Chris Wallace, all after a full campaign day.

  • Cameron: “Mitt Romney scored spectacular numbers in Frank Luntz’s focus groups.” (Carl Cameron, “Mitt In The Middle,” FOX’s Cameron’s Corner, www.cameron.blogs.foxnews.com, Posted 1/7/08)

Politico‘s Jonathan Martin: “Overall, Romney was much more effective at driving his message this evening, taking advantage of numerous opportunities to talk up his new theme of bringing change to Washington. He was able to discuss taxes and immigration – precisely the issues his campaign wants to spotlight here before the primary – and seemed at ease and relaxed the whole time.” (Jonathan Martin, “From Smackdown To Somnolent,” Politico, www.politico.com/jonathanmartin, Posted 1/6/08)

Race 4 2008’s Matthew E. Miller: “I really think Mitt Romney has come into his own over the last few days. In particular, I thought he was fantastic tonight.” (Matthew E. Miller, “A Comeback Kid?” Race 4 2008 Blog, http://race42008.com, Posted 1/6/08)

  • Miller: “But, beyond style, Romney has shown a staggering command of issues and details. He continually projects competence and seriousness, with well-thought out responses to tough questions.” (Matthew E. Miller, “A Comeback Kid?” Race 4 2008 Blog, http://race42008.com, Posted 1/6/08)
  • Miller: “Last night, Romney bore a brutal assault amazingly well, but tonight he actually won, because he not only seemed like the grown-up in the room, but the other candidates took a respite from their vicious anti-Romney glee.” (Matthew E. Miller, “A Comeback Kid?” Race 4 2008 Blog, http://race42008.com, Posted 1/6/08)

Here’s Newt’s pitch on how devastating the McCain Amnesty program is:

Here’s McCain tonight at the New Hampshire debate admitting he still supports his original plan to make illegal immigrants a special pathway to citizenship:

Sen McCain: “I THINK WE CAN SET UP A PROGRAM WHERE AMNESTY IS EXTENDED…”

“Amnesty has to be an important part because there are people who have lived in this country for 20, 30 or 40 years, who have raised children here and pay taxes here and are not citizens. That has to be a component of it.” – Sen. John McCain (C. T. Revere, “McCain Pushes Amnesty, Guest-Worker Program,” Tucson Citizen, 5/29/03)

Sen. McCain “Still Dogged By Immigration Issue”:

Many Considered McCain-Kennedy “Tantamount To Amnesty.” “For many of those same voters, McCain — co-sponsor of the immigration bill that died in Congress earlier this year — is on the wrong side of the issue. The McCain-Kennedy bill — there’s nothing like coupling your name to Ted Kennedy’s to automatically enrage some conservatives — would create a path to so-called earned citizenship for some of the estimated 12 million illegal immigrants in the United States. To some voters, earned citizenship for someone who came into the country illegally is tantamount to amnesty.” (Ron Claiborne, “McCain Still Dogged By Immigration Issue,” ABC News, 12/26/07)

Voters Still Doubt Sen. McCain’s Position On Immigration. “Often, his questioners tell him to his face, they just aren’t buying it. ‘I just think it’s not fair to all the people who came here legally and went through the process and now all the illegals, you’re gonna give ’em citizenship?’ said a woman in Durham, N.H., after hearing McCain explain his stand. ‘That’s not fair.'” (Ron Claiborne, “McCain Still Dogged By Immigration Issue,” ABC News, 12/26/07)

Sen. McCain Hasn’t Renounced McCain-Kennedy:

Despite Using Careful New Language On Immigration, Sen. McCain Still Hasn’t Renounced McCain-Kennedy. “He hasn’t exactly renounced the bill he championed in the spring, but he has fine-tuned his position and changed the emphasis to assure the skeptics and critics — and there are many — that dealing with the fate of those already in the country only occurs after the borders are secured.” (Ron Claiborne, “McCain Still Dogged By Immigration Issue,” ABC News, 12/26/07)

Sen. McCain Still Won’t Admit He Supported Amnesty:

At The Recent CNN/YouTube Debate, Sen. McCain Claimed, “We Never Proposed Amnesty.” CNN’s ANDERSON COOPER: “Senator McCain, let me bring you back to the question that was asked by the YouTube user. Would you willing to veto any immigration bill that involved amnesty for those who have come here illegally?” SEN. MCCAIN: “Yes, of course, and we never proposed amnesty.” (CNN/YouTube, Republican Presidential Candidate Debate, St. Petersburg, FL, 11/28/07)

Sen. McCain’s Political Director Recently Claimed That Sen. McCain Has “Never Been For Amnesty.” “‘Obviously when John McCain is attacked with un-truths, we are going to set the record straight,’ Dennehy told The Telegraph. ‘He’s never been for amnesty. That’s the bottom line.'” (Kevin Landrigan, “McCain Launches Direct Mail Attack,” The [Nashua, NH] Telegraph, 12/18/07)

Yet As Early As 2003, Sen. McCain Was Specifically Calling For Amnesty:

In 2003, McCain Declared, “Amnesty Has To Be An Important Part.” “‘There are jobs that American workers simply won’t do,’ McCain said. ‘As long as there’s a demand for workers, workers are going to come across.’ An amnesty program is vital to any immigration legislation that includes a guest-worker program, he said. ‘Amnesty has to be an important part because there are people who have lived in this country for 20, 30 or 40 years, who have raised children here and pay taxes here and are not citizens. That has to be a component of it,’ he said. ‘How can we have a temporary worker program if we’re not allowing people who have been here for 30 years to hold jobs here?'” (C. T. Revere, “McCain Pushes Amnesty, Guest-Worker Program,” Tucson Citizen, 5/29/03)

In 2003, McCain Also Said, “I Think We Can Set Up A Program Where Amnesty Is Extended To A Certain Number Of People Who Are Eligible…” “Immigration reform that was put on hold after the 9-11 terror attacks must be a priority when Congress reconvenes next week, Sen. John McCain said yesterday. While national security remains a crucial concern in light of the war on terror, lawmakers should pass a guest-worker program that includes amnesty for some illegal workers now in the United States… ‘I believe we can pursue the security programs and at the same time set up a system where people can come here and work on a temporary basis. I think we can set up a program where amnesty is extended to a certain number of people who are eligible and at the same time make sure that we have some control over people who come in and out of this country,’ he said.” (C. T. Revere, “McCain Pushes Amnesty, Guest-Worker Program,” Tucson Citizen, 5/29/03)

And For The Last Few Years, Sen. McCain Pushed For Legislation Widely Derided As Amnesty:

Union Leader Editorial: McCain-Kennedy Proposal “Would Encourage Border Jumping.” “Sens. John McCain and Ted Kennedy have a bill that, surprise, includes a generous guest worker program that would encourage border jumping. Illegals who register would have to pay a fine and taxes, but they would get to stay here and apply for permanent residency. That sure beats waiting at the border and hoping to be let in.” (Editorial, “Turnstile Security,” The [Manchester, NH] Union Leader, 3/27/06)

Mark Krikorian: “The McCain/Kennedy Amnesty Bill Has Been Unveiled, And It’s The Same Hoax We’ve Fallen For Before.” “The McCain/Kennedy amnesty bill has been unveiled, and it’s the same hoax we’ve fallen for before. Like the telemarketer who bilks a widow and then comes back in a different guise to charge a fee to ‘help’ her get the original money back, the anti-borders crowd created today’s immigration crisis and is now offering as a solution the very policies that got us in this mess in the first place.” (Mark Krikorian, “Fool Me Twice, Shame On Me,” National Review, 5/13/05)

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich Said McCain-Kennedy “Actually Provides For Amnesty.” NEWT GINGRICH: “However, the bill you mentioned – the Kennedy McCain bill – actually provides for amnesty. And it provides for amnesty for millions of people whose first act in the U.S. was to break the law. I think amnesty is profoundly wrong. I think it sends exactly the wrong signal.” (Fox News’ “The Big Story,” 3/20/06)

Columnist Charles Krauthammer: 2007 Immigration Bill Supported By Sen. McCain Was “Amnesty” And “Vacuous Nonsense.” “The immigration compromise being debated in Congress does improve our criteria for selecting legal immigrants. Unfortunately, its inadequacies in dealing with illegal immigration — specifically, in ensuring that 10 years from now we will not have a new cohort of 12 million demanding amnesty — completely swamp the good done on legal immigration. … The amnesty is triggered upon presidential certification that these bureaucratic benchmarks are met — regardless of what is actually happening at the border. What vacuous nonsense.” (Charles Krauthmammer, Op-Ed, “One Short Amendment,” The Washington Post, 5/25/07)

Brian Darling, Heritage Foundation: “It’s Clear To Any Reasonable Person That This Is Amnesty.” “‘It’s clear to any reasonable person that this is amnesty,’ said Brian Darling, director of Senate relations for the Heritage Foundation, a conservative think tank. ‘It’s forgiving individuals for being present in the country illegally and working in the country illegally as recently as five months ago.’ That, he said, could come back to haunt McCain.” (Christi Parsons, “GOP Foes Trade Fire On Immigration,” Chicago Tribune, 6/5/07)
