Boehner: Amnesty After GOP
Primary Filing Deadlines

Breitbart Big Government, by Matthew Boyle

Original Article

Posted By:SpeedMaster, 12/4/2013 12:50:39 PM

A new report from the Texas-based Quorum Report, published by longtime Texas journalist Harvey Kronberg, says that House Speaker John Boehner plans to push amnesty legislation through the House, after the primary filing deadline for candidates. The move would prevent Tea Party from challenging GOP lawmakers who support amnesty in 2014. Scott Braddock reported on Tuesday that “in recent weeks, various Texas business interests have told Quorum Report that Boehner has been telling them that he will start holding immigration votes not long after the filing deadline has passed.”

You will find me changing my registration the day after.

Another Amnesty until the next amnesty. The last one until the next one.

Amnesty serves to get the politicians off the hook for not doing anything for the last 30 years.

The Texas businessmen say they were told Boehner would "begin holding immigration votes". Where did any of them quote Boehner as saying he would "push amnesty"? This is a piece based on anonymous info and then sensationalized. I suggest everyone calm down.

I don´t believe this story. But I do know that I will not vote for anyone who votes for amnesty in any form regardless of their party affiliation. So if this story is true I may not be voting next November. And Boehner may have one less congressman to elect him as Speaker. I will be watching.

Best action is to vet out each candidate and his or her record.

We also have conservative "Watchdog Pacs" who will also be veting each candidate.

What Boehner does will thus already be factored in, should he try to bring Amnesty to the floor of the House.

The House should be working on a jobs bill. the unemployment in this nation is very high. Well above the reported 8.7%.

The Unemployment number does not account for those individuals who have given up looking for work, those who work part time in retail, and individuals who work in restaurant and food service.

I spoke to a Repub fundraiser on the phone this morning. I stopped him in mid-spiel
and informed him that if Boehner runs this amnesty bill, I will NEVER give one more cent to the Republican party. All my money will go to Tea Party candidates, or to individual Republican candidates that are not selling the country to the illegals.

The story could be about immigration bills and amnesty for children brought here by their parents. But...

If he does get amnesty votes after the primary filing deadlines, the Tea Party should let the Democrat win. After all it is only a matter of time anyway with amnesty. The Tea Party should announce this strategy loudly and often before any votes are cast to put the fear of losing into representatives no matter if in a primary of general election.

A correction can come the next cycle.

In that case, Mr Speaker....consider the entire republican party to be history. You´ve lost it before you attempted to win it. Party registration will be revised immediately. You tiresome unmanly wimp Why wait for the inevitable? Just do it. You, Cantor, Ryan and others need to be outed and removed for what you propose. Giving away our country to the highest bidder. Indeed, a sad day for the USA.

This is not an article from ´The Media´, it is from Breitbart. And, while there is no direct quote from Boehner about ´pushing amnesty´, some of us see a troubling picture being built here. Some of the salient points:

...in recent weeks, various Texas business interests have told Quorum Report that Boehner has been telling them that he will start holding immigration votes not long after the filing deadline has passed.)

Interesting timing.

This news from the Texas donor community comes as Boehner hired amnesty advocate Rebecca Tallent as his new immigration policy adviser.(snip)

Tallent previously worked for Senate “Gang of Eight” member Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) on immigration policy. She helped him and the late Sen. Ted Kennedy (D-MA) draft their final immigration proposal—one that ultimately failed.


We remember that one, right?

Boehner’s spokesman Michael Steel has not responded to multiple requests for comment from Breitbart News regarding Tallent or regarding the Quorum Report article.

If I were being misrepresented on such a hotbed subject, you´d better believe my spokesman would be front and center, explaining my true position.

I think we have reason to be concerned and mistrustful.

#4, did Boehner hire John McCain/Ted Kennedy´s immigration policy adviser or not? You´ve got to learn to study the actions, not listen to the words.

fta: Tallent previously worked for Senate “Gang of Eight” member Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) on immigration policy. She helped him and the late Sen. Ted Kennedy (D-MA) draft their final immigration proposal—one that ultimately failed.

“During her time with McCain, she helped the Arizona Republican draft a handful of immigration overhaul measures, including the last big push McCain made with the late Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, D-Mass., in 2007,” Roll Call wrote of Tallent on Tuesday. “In 2008, she was a policy adviser on McCain’s presidential campaign. Before working for McCain, she worked for former Rep. Jim Kolbe, R-Ariz., a longtime advocate of overhauling the immigration system who was involved in immigration efforts before he retired in 2006.”

Does the story even make sense? Waiting after the primary filing deadlines when there would be sure to have been many many challengers already filed.

Thus, an amnesty vote, after the deadline, would mostly dramatically strengthen the campaigns of those challengers who managed to file on time - and there would be lots of them too. As we know who the potential pro-amnesty Congressmen would be, all of those weasels would have likely have multiple, legally-filed challengers to lose to after any vote for amnesty.

Thanks for the suggestion, #4. I certainly wouldn´t know how to react without suggestions.

Excuse me while I voice my distrust of the GOP/Chamber of Commerce Speaker of The House.

He does not have to bring any of this up for a vote. He can table it and let it die. If he is uncertain how to do that he can ask Pelosi or Reid for training. They are pro´s at that tactic.

The only reason to bring it up for a vote is to pass something that he can modify in conference out of view from the public.

House Speaker John Boehner’s top allies are racing out the door to retirement, Bloomberg News reported on Thursday. Top Boehner allies that are retiring in 2014 include four committee chairmen: Reps. Mike Rogers (R-MI) of the Intelligence Committee, Buck McKeon (R-CA) of the Armed Services Committee, Doc Hastings (R-WA) of the Natural Resources Committee and Dave Camp (R-MI) of the Ways and Means Committee. One of Boehner closest friends, Rep. Tom Latham (R-IA), is retiring this year, and another—Rep. Mike Simpson (R-ID)—may lose his seat in a primary in Idaho against conservative Bryan Smith.

During the debates surrounding the adoption of the Constitution by the several states, one commentator observed that "the government should be so small that it doesn´t matter who wins." Well, the government is no longer small, and this year, in Virginia´s Seventh Congressional District, it matters very much who wins. Republicans are not the only people in this country who are dismayed at the collapse of conviction and principle in the party’s national establishment.

The ultimate party litmus test: given a veto-proof legislature, will Republicans finally start to reduce the scope and size of government? It looks like the answer is no. In 2013, North Carolina was just one of 25 states where Republican governors were given historic opportunity to govern alongside Republican-controlled legislatures. Despite conservative voters’ best hopes, any sensible mandate to restore individual and economic freedom flew out the window when the FY 2013-14 budget was approved, reauthorizing the formerly Democratic state’s blueprint budget with a tragic 2.0-percent increase in general fund appropriations.

The danger is this: In the USA’s upcoming 2014 elections, Republican elites assume that everyone all now agrees that conservatives ‘must’ support non-conservative candidates to win more elections. The GOP is operating on the belief that everyone is on board, simply because insiders have officially decreed it to be so. However, the grassroots in the USA remains unconvinced. Worse, the Republican establishment has no plan for truly healing the actual wounds. Elites want to avoid change more fervently than they do want to win elections. Elites violated trust by advancing liberal policies in the U.S. Congress, but they won’t apologize or

Trey Gowdy is a busy guy, and an up-and-coming senator says he should be on the Supreme Court. ? Over the past year or so, Gowdy, a South Carolina Republican congressman, has drawn substantial national attention, winning adulation from Tea Party activists who like his tough questioning in committee hearings. His growing prominence and indisputably Southern demeanor have made him one of the standouts from the 2010 House class. He’s in good company. Gowdy entered the House in the 2010 Tea Party wave along with three other freshman South Carolina Republicans: Tim Scott, Jeff Duncan, and Mick Mulvaney. The four were nicknamed

Russia´s Putin has invaded his neighbor’s sovereign territory. He must and will face serious repercussions for doing so, and the international community must make the price severe. Unless we are willing to go to war for Ukraine—and I believe that would be unwise—Russia without question has the military might and geographic advantage to control the Crimea and the Russian dominated areas of Ukraine. But at what cost? Russia´s stock market is dropping precipitously and their economy is quite dependent on exports that depend on a stable Ukraine.

Russia’s invasion of Crimea is a tipping point event that will further spur the American oil boom. The European Union (EU) and United States in 2008 threatened to slap economic sanctions on Russia for invading Georgia. But after a while the criticism faded and threats of sanctions were quietly dropped, because the EU is almost entirely reliant on Russia for energy supplies. A similar situation is unfolding today as the EU and U.S. are again making empty threats that they will stop exports of Russian oil and gas as punishment for invading the Ukraine. But due to the latest humiliation by

In a speech to an enthusiastic crowd of 1,400 at the University of Michigan, Obama repeatedly mocked Republican ideas about how to improve the economy, as he touted his own proposal to raise the minimum wage.

Do you think members of Congress are overpaid or underpaid? Most likely you’d go with the former, but Democratic congressman Jim Moran argues it’s actually the latter. In an interview with CQ Roll Call, Moran says, “I think the American people should know that the members of Congress are underpaid.” The House recently took up a bill to freeze members’ paychecks, placing another halt on the annual cost-of-living pay increases they would normally get and keeping annual salary at $174,000. Moran believes that this is the wrong way to go, not necessarily talking about himself in particular, but saying there

With Chris Christie in deep trouble, Republican poobahs are reportedly looking to Jeb Bush to save their party in 2016. The former two-term governor of Florida speaks fluent Spanish, is a convert to Catholicism, and has high name recognition. Jeb could raise millions of dollars over night by just saying “yes” to running. Despite all this, there are strong reasons Republicans should say no to him. 1. His last name is poison. Let’s face it, if Jeb Bush had the last name of Something Else he would have already run for president in 2008 or 2012. According to a recent Washington Post/ABC News poll registered voters were asked if they would definitely NOT vote for Jeb Bush and 50 percent said they would not.

The human kindling that makes up the flammable Republican base may soon burst into flames, again. Portions of that excitable cohort are looking — some with fawn-like eyes filled with hurt, others with sparks shooting from eyes narrowed like gun slits — askance at other Republicans urging Jeb Bush to seek the 2016 presidential nomination. A candidacy by Florida’s former governor would be desirable.
