As the invasion across our Southern Border continues unabated, the GOP Establishment is working on presenting a bill to “address the problem” and keep their “friends”, like the US Chamber of Commerce, happy at the same time.
Speaker of the House John Boehner is “talking the talk”. But, will he “walk the walk”?
From the Office of Speaker of the House John Boehner:
House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) issued the following statement after Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) said he would attempt to add comprehensive immigration reform to any House-passed bill to address the current border crisis:
“Senator Reid, embarrassed that he cannot strong-arm the Senate into passing the blank check President Obama demanded, is making a deceitful and cynical attempt to derail the House’s common-sense solution. So let me be as clear as I can be with Senator Reid: the House of Representatives will not take up the Senate immigration reform bill or accept it back from the Senate in any fashion. Nor will we accept any attempt to add any other comprehensive immigration reform bill or anything like it, including the DREAM Act, to the House’s targeted legislation, which is meant to fix the actual problems causing the border crisis. Such measures have no place in the effort to solve this crisis, and any attempt to exploit this crisis by adding such measures will run into a brick wall in the People’s House.
“While the White House has abandoned all pretense of governing and the Senate is doing almost nothing to address our struggling economy, Republicans remain committed to addressing the American people’s priorities, and that includes passing a responsible bill this week to help secure our border and return these children safely to their home countries.”
Okay, Mr. Speaker. What happens if the President of the United States decides to pass Amnesty by Executive Order?
It seems that I am not the only American concerned with that possible eventuality.
Senator Jeff Sessions (R., Ala.) trashed the proposed House Bill, yesterday, labeling it a “surrender to a lawless president” because it does not include any language to prevent President Obama from expanding his unilateral legalization of illegal immigrants.
Here’s the statement, courtesy of nationalreview.com:
The Obama Administration has openly declared its plan to implement a unilateral executive amnesty for 5–6 million more illegal immigrants. This unlawful amnesty—urged on by congressional Democrats—would include work permits, taking jobs directly from millions of struggling American citizens.
Any action Congress might consider to address the current border crisis would be futile should the President go forward with these lawless actions. Congress must speak out and fight against them. It must use its spending power to stop the President’s executive amnesty.
That the House leaders’ border package includes no language on executive actions is surrender to a lawless President. And it is a submission to the subordination of congressional power.
After years of falling wages and rising joblessness, American workers are pleading for someone to hear them. How can it be that our President is brazenly advertising that he will nullify and strip away American workers’ immigration protections, and their own elected leaders will not rise to their defense? Or to the defense of our laws and our Constitutional order?
There are other grave concerns with the Granger package as well: because it does not fix our asylum rules and loopholes, the end result of the additional judges and hearings will be more illegal immigrants gaining asylum and access to U.S. welfare. It is a plan for expedited asylum, not expedited removal.
Nor will this package make our rogue President actively enforce anything, coming nowhere close to the kinds of reasonable enforcement activities needed to restore the interior application of our immigration laws.
And finally, a package that is silent on blocking amnesty creates an opportunity for Senate Democrats to add elements of their party’s open borders and mass immigration agenda.
This legislation is unworthy of support.
Senator Sessions is a breath of fresh air, standing strong for Conservative principles, which Moderates like Speaker of the House “Cryin’ John” Boehner give lip service to, before they stab their Conservative base in the back.
What is a Moderate? You see that term being used all the time, exclusively among the Leadership of the Republican Party.
I believe that these “Moderates” are 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, except for actual Conservatives like Jeff Sessions, 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.
In 2010, as a result of the passage of Obamacare, by the Democrat Majority of both houses, 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, the now-Establishment Republican, 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 Parties, 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.
At a time when the current president is going down in flames and taking our Sovereign Nation with him, instead of fulfilling the wishes of their citizenry, 77u% of whom want these “Little Rascals to be sent back to Latin American countries they came from, Vichy Republicans are “reaching across the aisle” to help save the Prevaricator-in-Chief, by bringing forth bills that do not adequately address the problem of Illegal Immigration.
These RINOs are so consumed by their avarice and quest to be just like their Democratic allies, that they have forgotten why they were elected in the first place. If their constituents had wanted to elect Democrats, they would have pulled the lever marked “DEMOCRAT”.
It’s time for Cryin’ John, Maverick, Grahamnesty, and the rest of the GOP Elite girly-men to put their big boy pants on, and do the job they were elected to do: work for the betterment of this country, not for its destruction at the hands of Barack Hussein Obama. He’s doing fine with that…all by his lonesome.
And, as I’ve said before, if the Vichy Republicans think that the new “Americans” they’re potentially creating will actually vote for them, replacing us worrisome members of the Conservative Base, I have two bridges over the Mississippi River at Memphis to sell them.
And, in the spirit of the nickname I’ve given them, and the courage they are showing, I will throw in two French Rifles from World War II….dropped once…never fired.
It is time for Conservatives to stand up for ourselves and our country once again.
Please burn up the Congressional Switchboard today, with your calls to your Representatives, telling them not to pass the House Bill.
Remind these “public servants” that the Mid-Term Elections are in November, and these elections have the potential to dwarf the results of 2010’s, in terms of COnservative Backlash.
It is time for Payback. And, Payback is a…well…you know.
Until He Comes,
