GOP preps for its big immigration play
MSNBC, by Benjy Sarlin

Original Article

Posted By:mikkins2, 1/11/2014 9:20:28 AM

Immigration reform: surprisingly not dead! That’s the message top House Republicans are sending as the new year kicks off. Speaker John Boehner is working with his caucus this month on a set of “principles” that will guide them in crafting a legislative response to the bipartisan Senate bill that passed long ago. In a very heartening sign for immigration activists, House Judiciary Chair Bob Goodlatte – the caucus’ point man on the issue – suggested to Telemundo on Friday that these principles could include some kind of legalization program for the nation’s undocumented immigrants. That would be a breakthrough for

Comments:
Oh, its coming folks. I have said before that the reason the Chamber of Commerce and other Republican Establishment groups are rattling their sabers is because Boehner told them he would need assurances from them that they would pour money in to help defeat the Tea Party primary challengers they are almost guaranteed to face when Boehner and crew go after the Hispanic vote.

Remember this is all about votes and money, not the actual problem with the current immigration system.

I wonder if there is a way to calculate the number of house and senate seats the Pubs will lose if they do this?

I guess the guys at the top don´t care since they very likely won´t lose theirs.

If memory serves me right, Rove only gained Bush 40% of the Hispanic vote when he last ran for Texas governor. So this is the template for gazillions of new voters as new blood for the Republicans?

I do no believe the establishment wants to win elections. Minority status is easier than governing. Besides, you get the table scraps!

I´ll sit out 2014 if this amnesty passes. Better to die fighting than on your knees.

Accept every demand of the Democrats except citizenship for those who entered the country illegally as adults. That will smoke the ´Rats out and they will be forced to own up their true intentions in front of the voters.

As an American Patriot I refuse to be manipulated by a crybaby like Boehner and his diaper changers. They wish to shoot themselves, have at it. There is no compromise until the borders are CLOSED ...PERIOD!!!! Got it? You want this vote, you either get the picture or shove on out of here. Just as I´ve never voted for a rat since the ´wise´ owl gore, I´ll never vote another pub if they should allow our sovereign nation to be invaded by non US Citizens This I swear on my Holy Bible.

Yesterday I received yet another begging letter from the RNC. I wrote my thoughts on amnesty, "path to citizenship" and legalization and told them the needed to fight the Dems and not the Tea Party. I then popped it back in their postpaid envelop and sent it back to them without a check.

I´ve been doing this for months, and the volume of Republican appeals is clearly diminishing (both phone and mail), but they´re still trying.

Sorry you disagree, Poster #5. I don´t know how old you are, but you seem to have a far greater appetite for BS than I do.

The way this amnesty deal is shaping up, the Republicans will be complicit in its passage. So do you expect me to approve?

Sometimes things can be restored, and sometimes things need to be torn down. You can waste you time tinkering if you wish.

It´s pretty simple the Democrats want to grant the vast illegal alien population group a permanent immigration status that will eventually attain them eventual US voting rights as the Democrats have been using both illegal and legal immigration as a voter generating machine now since the mid 1960´s.

The Republicans will want to grant the illegal alien population group a (temporary) immigration status that will allow them to legally work in the US as the primary factor in both illegal and legal immigration that draws Republican interest is that immigration continues to generate as much cheap labor for their business oriented supporters as possibly.

It looks like the Democrats are angling to use both a big amnesty and expanded further immigration to change the balance of the American electorate to their favor in a big way by eventually infusing tens of millions of new mostly poor and generally uneducated foreign born people into the American voting process in the years ahead. The Republicans would have to be political moron to facilitate that happening.

The problem with waiting is that by time you know what congressional Republicans are going to do, they´ve already done you in. The best thing to do is the opposite of what #6 advises: Let them know now what they must not do, and then go after anyone who tries to do it.

Our current GOP leaders are addicted to power and devoid of principle in how they acquire and maintain it. We need tough love for our rollover Republican friends. The more pressure we put on them not to cave, the more their innate fear of political risk will overwhelm their natural desire to compromise with the Democrats. They´re spineless. So we need to provide the backbone.

Washington Examiner, by Philip Klein    Original Article
Posted By: mikkins2- 2/14/2014 2:55:34 PM     Post Reply
On Oct. 20, 1998, eager to avoid another government shutdown weeks before midterm elections, then-House Speaker Newt Gingrich acceded to President Clinton´s demands by pushing a 40-pound, 16-inch thick, 3,825-page, pork-laden spending bill through the Republican-controlled chamber. At the time, the Associated Press reported, “Gingrich lectured his own party´s conservatives, labeling them ´the perfectionist caucus´ ” for demanding a tougher stand against Clinton. It was four years earlier that Republicans had taken over control of Congress, storming into Washington on a pledge to shrink the size and scope of government. In the winter of 1995-96, the failure of Clinton and

When Speaker of the House John Boehner said that conservative groups like the Club for Growth have been “misleading their followers” and have “lost all credibility,” I didn’t pay much attention to it. After all, members of Congress are constantly saying the Club doesn’t matter — even though it’s belied by the facts: Since 2006 the Club’s PAC has helped nearly 50 endorsed candidates get elected to Congress. Some of the party’s brightest stars — senators Marco Rubio of Florida, Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania, and Ted Cruz of Texas, congressmen Ron DeSantis of Florida and Justin Amash of Michigan —

"There is no education in the second kick of a mule," said Sen. Mitch McConnell of Kentucky. With some such thought in mind, Speaker John Boehner strode to the floor of the House to offer a "clean" debt ceiling bill and relied on Nancy Pelosi´s Democrats to pass it. They did. "Surrender" and "betrayal," are among the epithets coming the Speaker´s way. Yet Boehner was holding a losing hand. Had he added a GOP wish-list bill to the debt ceiling, Harry Reid´s Senate would have rejected it. President Obama would have denounced it as putting at risk the full faith and credit of

He was referring specifically, of course, to squishy Senate Republicans who tried to obfuscate how they voted on raising the debt ceiling last Wednesday. The Hill caught the transcript of Sen. Cruz’s remarks: “In the 13 months I’ve been in the Senate it has become apparent to me the single thing that Republican politicians hate and fear the most, and that is when they’re forced to tell the truth. It makes their heads explode,” Cruz told radio host Mark Levin Thursday. Cruz tried to filibuster a vote in the Senate to raise the debt ceiling Wednesday, forcing the approval of 60 senators

Less than 24 hours after President Obama illegally rewrote the law he had previously jammed down Boehner´s -- and the country´s -- throat, Boehner handed the budding dictator a clean debt-ceiling hike. Last October, Obama vindictively shut down the federal government upon his having refused to delay ObamaCare, which of course is exactly what he himself lawlessly did on February 10, 2014! Of course, Boehner is hardly in a position to argue now, having foolishly (immensely so) accepted responsibility for the shutdown. Never mind Boehner´s cowardice (we´ll get to that in a moment); what kind of moron cedes that kind of maneuverability to

It seems congressional Republicans may have, once again, been talked off the ledge, and convinced to crawl back in the window on immigration reform. For now, at least, they are off suicide watch. But it seems every year or two the American people need to intervene, grab them by the ear, and drag them kicking and screaming away from the window again. It may be, however, that they´re not suicidal after all. Rather, consciously or not, the GOP leadership may have come to realize they´re already dead.

In the middle of 2013, a French journalist asked me who I thought was today’s outstanding center-right head of government. After a few moments’ thought, I responded: “She died in April. Requiescat in pace.” Looking around the world, the search for what might be called a full-spectrum conservative government leader was, until recently, a depressing exercise. On many issues, Britain’s Conservative Prime Minister David Cameron seems positively ill-at-ease with most of his own MPs (and certainly grass-roots Tories) who are more-than-a-few clicks to the right of him.

So why are the political parties, including the Tea Party, of so little help when it comes to working for legitimate reform?

Gen. George McClellan commanded Union forces during the Civil War. He famously and constantly retreated across the map despite having larger forces than Gen. Robert E. Lee. At one point, meeting with his generals in the White House, Abraham Lincoln commented, "If General McClellan does not want to use the army, I would like to borrow it for a time." Ultimately, Abraham Lincoln dismissed him. Gen. McCellan seems alive and well, having returned as the senior consultant to the Republican leadership on Capitol Hill.

At least every week now, there is a new story supporting the narrative of an inevitable 2016 Hillary Clinton presidential bid. Indeed, the conventional wisdom is that it is an absolute certainty that she will run. If anyone is currently saying, flat out, that Hillary isn´t running, I haven´t come across them. Is the inevitability of her run really as certain as the conventional wisdom suggests, and further, is it unfolding in an optimal manner for the potential candidate? In all likelihood, Clinton will not make a final, "go-or-no-go" decision until early next year, after the dust has settled from

The school of literary criticism known as reception theory holds that a text should be studied in light of its effect on its contemporaries, that a reader should be aware of the “horizon of expectations” in which a text is produced. I was reminded of this the other day as I observed, in amusement, fascination, and occasional pity, the reaction of the so-called mainstream media to Alana Goodman’s lengthy and rock-solid report on “The Hillary Papers.” This trove of previously unexamined transcriptions of conversations between Hillary Clinton and her best friend Diane Blair had been collecting dust at the University

Is demonic possession real or the manifestation of mental illness? In assisting priests in nearly 100 exorcisms, Adam Blai has become a true believer in good and evil, God and the devil.

Former Allegheny County commissioner Bob Cranmer says he shares that same knowledge. He says his home was possessed. “I’ve seen it; I’ve seen crucifixes bent in half repeatedly.

The other is Saeed Abedini, a prisoner of Iran. Each has been sentenced to long prison terms for “crimes” that only a criminal regime would deem criminal: Bae for ministering to Christians and Abedini for work on behalf of house churches. Alas, the week since Obama’s call confirms a depressing fact about America’s diminished standing in the world these days. Pyongyang packed Bae off to one of its labor camps in the vast
