GOP Preparing to Fool Constituents on Immigration

Sunday, August 4th, 2013

Obama’s Three House Stooges

Now that we’re in August, a time when Congress goes on recess, returning home to hear from their constituents, we grass-roots conservatives have an opportunity.  Somewhere near you, members will probably hold a few town hall meetings.  You need to be there.  Leadership has coached them on the issues of immigration and funding Obama-care, but for the sake of argument, let us prioritize a bit.  The Republican leadership wants to push a bill through the House that will be a head-fake on immigration.  It will promise all sorts of seemingly nifty gimmicks on border control, but you need not be fooled: This is about passing some bill, any bill at all, so that in conference with the Senate, they can shove the Gang-of-Tr8ors bill down our throats.  Our answer to them in their town hall meetings must be plain and simple:  No bill!  Any bill they pass in the House will merely become a vehicle for a Senate bill that will grant amnesty.  They don’t really give a damn about border security, or doing anything about the millions of illegals who have ignored our laws already.  We must stop this process cold, but we must not permit ourselves to be bought-off with phony promises that will never be kept.  When the opportunity arises to tell you House members what you think, don’t miss it, and let them know you will not be fooled.  Your only answer on immigration must be: “Kill the bill.”

They really do believe we are stupid.  Our less-engaged fellow Americans give them plenty of reason to believe this, since they’re often completely distracted by other things, but that’s where we come in.  We must let our fellow citizens know that the two parties in Washington DC are conspiring against them in order to manipulate them into a position in which it appears as though they have supported the laws Congress wishes to enact.  In order to help you understand what lies ahead in the coming weeks, I’ve drawn the process as a flow-chart.  (Click it to see full-size version.)

How they’ll push the bill…

The simple fact is that the bulk of the Republican party in Washington DC wants this bill.  They are doing the bidding of big business, but also the progressive wing of the party that is for all intents and purposes a fifth-column, stealth-mode gaggle of shills for the larger leftist-progressive movement that dominates DC, and the entire media establishment.  These are the elites in the Republican party, and they hate your guts.  In order to trick you, they are preparing to put on a show that will involve pretending to gather your opinions, while hoping you’ll be too busy or distracted to offer them.  They will go through this recess and take up the bill that has been working its way through committees in the House, and move to pass it before or immediately after the Labor Day weekend.  Once passed, the bill will go to conference, and all these promises of border security and combating illegal immigration will be scrapped in favor of the Senate version.  Then it will go back to both chambers for a final vote, where mostly Democrats will support the bill in both Houses.  There is only one way for the American people to win: We must kill any House bill on immigration, even if we are compelled to heckle our own members at town-hall meetings.  This must be defeated.

I cannot repeat this point often enough: The final bill will be passed with a majority of Democrats supporting it.  That’s right, this entire process is being rigged so that it can be passed with only a couple hands-full of Republicans supporting it.  They only need a few RINOs in the Senate, and in the House, they will only need a couple-dozen Republicans of the RINO wing of the party.  The key is to push some bill through the House so they can get it to conference.  Once that’s accomplished, the RINOs can and will do whatever they please. We have discussed ad nauseum all the reasons the “immigration reforms” being pushed by the DC establishment is horrible for the country, but the most important consideration for you is this:  It’s their attempt to permanently negate the conservative wing of the party.  Once they herd 30 million new immigrants into the voting booths, it won’t matter what you think about anything.

This means that our only hope of saving the country begins and ends with the defeat of any immigration bill brought up in the House of representatives. There is no other way around it, and no other way we can expect to bring this plot of the DC statists to an end.  We need maximum participation at such town-hall meetings as Republicans may hold in the coming weeks, and we need to be fearless, loud, and clear: On the issue of immigration, the only acceptable answer is “Kill the Bill.” If we permit them to fool us, we will have missed our last opportunity to begin the process of saving the republic. Any House immigration bill must die.

Spread the word: Kill the bill, or let it kill the republic.

Would Gang of Tr8ors Support Tax-Payer Amnesty?

Monday, July 1st, 2013

Let’s Ditch All of This

For those who insist upon the rule of law, and who therefore find it abominable that any legislator would support a program of amnesty, it’s impossible to understand how they don’t see the real danger of their immigration proposals.  If those who have violated our laws will not be held accountable, forced to leave the country, to be placed in a position at the end of the line, behind all those who have followed the law, why would any person follow the law from the moment some sort of amnesty is enacted?  Since legislators are generally a thick-skulled, treacherous, intransigent lot, I thought it would be better to place this in terms they might understand somewhat more readily.  Among the things representatives, senators and presidents love best is to spend tax-payers’ money.  We have every conceivable evidence to demonstrate this is true, to the outlandish extent that they are willing to spend money they first must ask the Federal Reserve to lend into existence.  Their willingness to borrow notwithstanding, I wonder what would happen if some crafty Senator like Ted Cruz(R-TX)(ahem, hint, hint) were to introduce a bill that would provide for a blanket tax-payer amnesty on an indefinite basis, much like has been passed in the Senate for illegals under the Gang-of-Tr8ors Senate Amnesty bill.

How hard could it be, after all?  If giving away a pathway to citizenship to scofflaws is expected to ultimately attract some forty-five million new voters, just imagine how many voters our politicians could attract with this plan, and without any worries about messy citizenship paperwork.  Of course, you needn’t concern yourselves with the fact that every person in the country would thereafter decide to stop paying their taxes, because we all know how thoroughly serious a matter it is to elected Democrats and Republicans alike to ensure they send the money they owe to Uncle Sam.  Think of the cost-savings!

If you think it sounds a bit far-fetched, it’s only because you know politicians would never offer to you, their citizen captives, what they will offer to the new class of wage-slaves they hope to import.  Still, I believe this is an important point of order to be raised among the intelligentsia in Washington DC:  If amnesty is good for the goose, should it not be likewise good for the gander?  I’m not talking about some petty amnesty that will let tax-payers walk on a portion of their bill, one time, for all time.  I am describing here an amnesty that would apply across the board to all tax-payers, each and every time they owe taxes, and for the full amount.  Why not?  Will legislators insist that this is impossible, in part because it will encourage lawlessness, driving tax receipts for the Treasury inexorably downward?  Pish-posh, that’s not going to happen, because we have as an example the Senate’s Gang-of-Tr8ors bill that they assure us will have no such effect on the subject of immigration.

Do they want safeguards?  Perhaps we should offer such safeguards as they’ve delivered in their Gang-of-Tr8ors bill.  On the second Tuesday of next week, we will promise to pay our full tax bills in exchange for amnesty now.  We can authorize an “electronic fence” around the US treasury that will be funded by all the new tax-payers this amnesty will provide, right Senator Scrubio(RINO-FL)?  I think we could provide assurances to the members of the House and Senate that such an amnesty would never create an empty Treasury, and that legalized anarchy in revenue would not prevail.  Indeed, in order to cut government costs of administration, we should hire 10,000 additional IRS bureaucrats to assist with the amnesty.  It seems they need more staff, being tied-up as they are with all of those audits of Tea Party and Conservative groups.

Wouldn’t it create vast new economic growth?  Imagine all the new economic activity born of such an amnesty!  Except for the part that we would be assuring the Congress that tax-bills would naturally continue to be paid on time, and in the full amounts owed, [wink-wink,] we know that the tax-payers who were granted amnesty under such a plan would plow the money into new business endeavors, hire more of those illegal aliens who won’t be illegal any longer, and otherwise create an economic boom!  Just imagine: We will have permanently eliminated all tax-cheating!

This all seems too sweet for politicians to pass-up, but I suspect that they’re a bit more realistic about dollars and cents than they are about handing out citizenship, work visas, and “green cards.”  It is for precisely the reasons that such a plan is unworkable with taxation and revenue that it is equally preposterous in the field of immigration and border security: Having destroyed all legal barriers, there is no longer any reason to comply with the law, and not a single soul with the minimal sense nature gave to a starfish will be inclined to comply.  Why comply when non-compliance carries no penalties and no downside?

I think some enterprising Representative ought to raise this as an amendment to any House bill, (which should be roundly defeated in any case, even absent such provisions,) because I would simply like to see the look on some dim-witted representative’s face, perhaps the budget committee chairman’s, as he tries to explain why amnesty would be great for illegal aliens but horrible for the US tax-payer.  I would like to see any of these people justify this in virtually any other context.  Sadly, they will avoid this question like the plague, but you should not.  Ask them:

“Senator Maverick McLame, can we get some of that blanket amnesty for tax-payers?”

In the House:

“Chairman Ryan, wouldn’t your argument about economic growth apply even more thoroughly to tax-payer amnesty?”

Rubio, in the corridor:

“Senator [SC]Rubio, is it true that you said “tax-payer amnesty” isn’t simply code for “tax-cuts?”

In a hurry to get to a “We like Weiner Anthony” rally, Schmuckie Schumer(Dementocrat-NY)  is caught on the run:

“Senator Schmuckie, does the proposed tax-payer amnesty bill steam your Weiner?”

They’ll be in a hurry to get somewhere, so talk fast. I guarantee they will.

Coming to America: What the Gang of Tr8ors Will Have Wrought

McCain’s Friends

In the last several years, conservatives have grown accustomed to the feeling of a knife in their backs as the Republican Party’s elites have seemed intent upon subversion of the party’s ideals. Pledges and campaign promises are seldom honored, and elected Republicans have seemed to simply go to Washington DC with their own agendas that do not comport or comply with all of the things they had said.  Part of its cause is surely the fact that many are simply lying, power-hungry politicians who lied for conservative support, but with the turn of events over the current immigration reform bill, it seems as though there must be something else.  The immigration reform bill being debated in the Senate is a writ of suicide not merely for the Republican Party, but for the whole country, and yet most Republican Senators seem unfazed.  The bill isn’t merely bad. It’s not a mistake.  It’s a monstrous attempt to reorganize the country by redefining what it means to be an American and how one goes about qualifying for that privilege.  These Republican Senators aren’t merely abandoning the party platform, but are instead announcing to the world their intention to betray America.

Radio talk show host Dana Loesch has been doing fantastic work via Twitter, laying out how provisions of this bill will absolutely destroy any checks on illegal immigration by effectively legalizing everything. Ted Cruz has also tweeted a number of troubling details, and this includes particularly the despicable, wolf-in-sheeps-clothing Corker-Hoeven Amendment.  You may remember their complaints about how visa over-stays are one of the primary methods of entry for illegal immigrants, apart from our porous Southern border, but under this ridiculous legislation, they cure that problem by permitting people who over-stay their visas to restart the process without penalty and without leaving the country.  As if that’s not bad enough, they’re actually creating an office for civil rights to advise illegal immigrants under the law.  Can I get an office of tax non-compliance for the day I finally decide to stop paying my tax burden?  What’s next?  Strip maps to the best penetration points in Southwest Texas?

Worst of all, they talk about doubling the number of border agents, but that’s only a fraction of the problem.  What is actually needed is a quadrupling of ICE agents working in the interior of the country with the authority to apprehend and deport illegals.  Stopping them at the border would be great, but where we need real help is finding them once they’re well inside our country and booting them the Hell out!  Of course, all of this relies on the diligence of the Obama administration along with subsequent administrations in enforcing the law.  In other words, if t his bill passes the Senate, and Boehner rigs any immigration bill to pass the House, we’ll be screwed [again] when the conference bill comes back for final passage.

These people have decided to foist this on us one way or the other, so that they can pay off their corporate cronies, who want cheaper labor by the millions.  If you haven’t called your Senators, I need to ask you why you’re delaying.  They’re voting on the Corker-Hoeven amendment on Monday morning, so as to offer cover to those who vote for it now in the Senate, and those who will vote for the conference bill in both Houses.  My response is this, and it’s simple, it doesn’t mean much, but it’s the stance I’m taking:  I will consider each and every member of either House who supports this abomination as guilty of treason against the United States, its constitution, and the American people.

When the “Gang-of-Tr8ors” brought this amnesty bill to the floor, they already had patsies lined up to support it, including Corker and Hoeven who they will use to “amend” the bill, making it even more obnoxious. Readers have asked in comments, or in emails, and on Facebook too why it is that there are so many Republicans who would sell out their country, and while the reasons probably vary somewhat from member to member, the fact is that there are only two reasons these worthless scum-bags would act to destroy their party and their country in one fell swoop: The money is substantial and/or they’re really liberal Democrats of the Arlen Specter inclination anyway.

Think about it, if you will: These people are building a one-party country and government, and the party isn’t “Republican,” and surely not conservative.  Even though roughly 40% of the country claims to be conservative, these people have figured out the formula for winning and making the wishes of that 40% of the population irrelevant, and even to make them a smaller group as a share of the population, which they will increase by something on the order of 22-35 million by virtue of this immigration bill, at least two-thirds of whom will vote Democrat reliably in election after election.  One could perhaps understand an old fool like John McCain who probably won’t run for re-election in 2016, but for the other guys, younger Senators like Rubio and Flake, there must be some other motive.  If it’s not corporate money[alone], what could it be?  They either have interests we do not know, or they’re positioning themselves to become Democrats.

Compared to these guys, Benedict Arnold was a saint.  He conspired to give away the fort at West Point to the British for a commission.  These bastards are giving away the entire country.  Writing of Benedict Arnold after his treason was exposed, Benjamin Franklin said:

“Judas sold only one man, Arnold three millions.”

If this is so, then what must we say of our Republican sell-outs? How many millions do these people now betray?  How many Americans will now pay ad infinitum for the designs of these men and women? Examining this bill, and all of the provisions that do absolutely nothing to stem the tide of future illegal immigrants except to legalize their actions, one cannot conclude that these Senators have the best interests of the nation at heart, and claims that they’re acting from some sort of compassionate motive simply doesn’t square with the misery they are inflicting on the nation at large.  To Hell with them.  I’ll be damned if I let the days pass without bombarding them with my view on their treason.  The only good news is that they’re under fire, and they know it. We’re having an effect, and none should despair yet. The fight goes on until the DC class manages to park this bill on Obama’s desk, and I’m not giving away my country without a fight.
