I believe that the GOP Establishment is composed of “Moderates”, or wannabe Democrats, who are content to work behind enemy lines…Vichy Republicans, if you will.
They have been working within the Republican Party for the last couple of decades, slowly pushing the party’s ideology further and further to the Left of the Political Spectrum, until now, when the GOP seems to be just a slightly less radical extension of the Party of the Jackass.
The problem is, all of this jackassery is happening within the ranks of the Leadership of the Republican Party, while the base of the GOP remains solidly Conservative.
Think I’m crazy? Yesterday, I posted about the fact that Obama is facilitating the illegal Mexican Munchkin Migration, presently occurring across our Southern Borders in which tens of thousand of illegal alien minors are being transported, withput their parents, which is having a devastating impact on both our Border Patrol and Immigration Services.
Now, what would the logical stand be for the “Opposition Party” to take? Opposition to all of this Obama Administration-sponsored illegality, right?
Nope. The Vichy Republicans not only support this lawbreaking…they want to reward the lawbreakers.
Here, Mr. Burglar, take my car, too.
House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, R-Va., made that abundantly clear in an interview with a local Virginia TV station WTVR last Friday. During the interview, he claimed that he told President Obama that “we can work on the border security bill together. We can work on something like the kids.”
Additionally, Breitbart.com reports that
Helping guide a secretive effort to informally gauge support for legislative action on the issue before August are two expected names: Reps. Mario Diaz-Balart (R-FL) and Paul Ryan (R-WI).
But joining them is a young conservative lawmaker whose efforts on the issue have shocked conservative power brokers and prompted a behind-the-scenes backlash.
“Absolutely,” Rep. Mick Mulvaney (R-SC) told Breitbart News, “I have been talking about immigration with my colleagues for months. Talking about important issues is part of my job.”
Mulvaney was quick to add he isn’t “whipping” support for a bill per se – “I haven’t even seen a bill on immigration reform that I could whip even if I wanted to,” he said – and that he remains firmly opposed to the Senate “Gang of Eight” bill.
“I have absolutely no interest in taking up the Senate bill or going to conference on the Senate bill. Securing our borders is my first priority on any immigration reform, and the Senate bill falls woefully short on that point.
Furthermore, I will not support a special pathway to citizenship for those who are here illegally. The Senate bill has always been and remains a non-starter,” Mulvaney said.
Still, his support for House action on the issue this year, and his backing for a separate issue, reauthorization of the Export-Import bank, has prompted new scrutiny on Mulvaney from the right.
“He needs to be called out for this,” one prominent conservative says.
Mulvaney not only has one of the most conservative voting records in the House Republican conference, he has been a leader of a group of conservative dissidents looking to push Speaker John Boehner to the right. In 2013,
Mulvaney pointedly took a seat near the front of the House chamber and sat silently as his name was called repeatedly during the Boehner’s reelection as speaker.
His new movement on immigration isn’t his first foray into the issue. In February, he was profiled by a New York Times reporter who traveled to his South Carolina district to witness his first town hall conducted in Spanish.
But then, he said legislative action was out of the question because President Obama is an untrustworthy partner. “We are afraid that if we reach an agreement, he will take the parts he likes and he won’t take the parts that he doesn’t like,” Mulvaney told the audience in Spanish, according to the Times.
Breitbart.com also reports that
According to the Associated Press, Obama “met at the White House Monday with a group of nurses to discuss” immigration. Alvin Vitung, a nurse from California who attended the event, said Obama “told them he thought there was a 50-50 chance of House action in the next month — perhaps higher if they kept up their advocacy.”
…Meanwhile, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA), who has been sending out deceptive anti-amnesty mailers to cloud his position on the issue while his primary opponent Dave Brat has been surging in the polls before Tuesday’s primary, indicated on Friday that he would be willing to work with Obama to give amnesty to illegal immigrant children.
As Breitbart News reported, that is exactly the point the anti-Cantor and anti-amnesty We Deserve Better PAC made last week while trying to set the record straight with a 30-second spot that highlighted Cantor’s support for amnesty. The PAC “argued that Cantor and Obama’s next big deal will be to give ‘amnesty and citizenship’ to illegal immigrants.”
Chatter from Washington about amnesty legislation may be compelling illegal immigrant youth to pour into the country. As Breitbart Texas first reported, illegal immigrants are being warehoused in Texas and being sent to neighboring states like Arizona and Oklahoma.
Obama recently instructed Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson to delay the administration’s deportation review to give Congress a chance to pass amnesty legislation by August. Pro-amnesty advocates like Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) have said that Obama will act alone to ease deportations if Congress does not pass legislation this summer.
In 2010, as a result of the passage of Obamacare, by the Democrat Majority of both Houses of Congress, Americans stood up on their hind legs, formed Grass Roots TEA Party Groups, holding rallies featuring Conservatives such as Lt. Col. Allen West, Sarah Palin, and, this before-mentioned Benedict Arnold, Marco Rubio.
The result was a Mid-term Electoral Tsunami, in which Republicans regained control of the House, and made gains in the Senate.
However, since then, the Republican Establishment has turned their back on the TEA Party, and the Conservative Base in general, showing their elitism by siding with the Democrats regarding such issues as the Debt Ceiling, Homosexual Marriage and “Immigration Reform”, i.e, AMNESTY.
The Republican Establishment had better think about which side their bread is buttered on. If they don’t, I hope they have a trade to fall back on.
The Vichy Republican Establishment has backhanded Conservatives for a long while, now.
It is time for Conservatives to stand up for ourselves and our country once again.
It is time for Payback. And, Payback is a…well…you know.
Until He Comes,
