The Republican suicide
strategy on immigration

Washington Times, by Wesley Pruden

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/30/2014 9:22:42 PM

The Republicans are said to be looking for “something big” to smooth the rough places in the path to November, to make life easy and comfortable for incumbents, something to get that infernal racket of the guns out of their ears. Politics can be so fatiguing. Suicide is “something big,” so they’re thinking about it. Surrender and suicide comes easy for certain Republicans, particularly when it’s surrender to greed and avarice. If you can wrap avarice in a little piety, it’s easier still. Reince Priebus, the chairman of the Republican National Committee and the man who’s paid to have the answers about

Comments:
So far, Mr. Pruden sums it up the best. He mentions that big business wants cheap labor. Chris Stirewalt was just on Fox and said further that 0bama is going to punish businesses by executive order on immigration and those big businesses who support estabishment Republicans (and give them millions of dollars) are screaming at the Republicans for help. It´s a lose lose situation for us.

The democrats get enough money from Hollywood, and other liberal bigwigs to meet their needs, so all they need for permanent control are votes; however, the republicans big donors (or to be more accurate, bribers), want amnesty; therefore, the the money comes ahead of control for the republicans.

In short: the republicans are willing to sell the country down the river in order to line their pockets.

Dumb arsed conservatives say no, no, no, we don´t need a Constitutional Party, we need to change the republican party: I see little hope for the country.

What´s happening is a Republican move to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. All this move will do is further disgust the base and shift more people into Teaparty mode- thus splitting up the "conservative" side while the lefties keep right on ploughing Republicans under.

What the strategy here on this stupid move is, is absolutely unfathomable.

How can the GOP leadership be dumb enough to trust Obama to follow whatever law they pass on immigration amnesty after he issues waiver after waiver and deadline extensions on Obamacare without consulting Congress? Obama is certain to non-enforce any kind of border security provisions. Trust in our government to do anything right is dangerously low right now.

The evidence that the Republicans are no different than the Dhimocrats continues to mount. There is no representation for America in the Cartel Party.

Cue song: "This Is Not Amnesty!" An oldie but goodie from Karl and the Rovettes.

If the Republicans are stupid enough to pass this, then they deserve to be extinct. The country desperately needs a genuine alternative, a just plain conservative (small government, strong national defense, lower taxes) party. And to get that, we´re going to also need an articulate, passionate leader.

Ted Cruz, your country needs you...to lead us away from the current insanity and form this new party.

The Hill [Washington, DC], by Justin Sink    Original Article

President Obama argued on Thursday government needed to provide not only "the absence of oppression" but also "the presence of economic opportunity" as the nation sought to secure the gains of the civil rights movement. In a sweeping half-hour speech at the Lyndon Johnson Presidential Library in Austin, Obama credited the former president as an exemplar of what lawmakers should do when granted power. He said the president and former Senate Majority Leader never forgot his humble roots in poverty, and credited that background with driving Johnson´s push for the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Obama´s speech marked the 50th anniversary

"The only reason we haven´t been able to get the truth from Lois Lerner is because of one person. And that is our chairman," Rep. Steve Horsford (D-Nev.) told the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee on Thursday, as the panel considered a contempt of Congress resolution against the former IRS official. "So if my colleagues want to hold someone in contempt, maybe they should look to the person holding the gavel, since it´s his poor handling of this investigation that has resulted in why we can´t get the truth that the people deserve." Horsford said the contempt resolution against

Benjamin Jealous, the former president of the NAACP, appeared on MSNBC on Thursday and praised Attorney General Eric Holder‘s remarks before the National Action Network, in which he implied that both he and President Barack Obama suffer race-based indignities from conservatives. Jealous said the nation should count itself “blessed” to have such an honest attorney general and blamed the tea party for the racial antipathy directed at White House officials. “We should count ourselves blessed that we have an AG who will speak to us about the truth,” Jealous said of Holder’s remarks. “I know perhaps better than most just the

A lesson plan asking students to draw parallels between late civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. and convicted cop-killer Mumia Abu-Jamal is an “absolute disgrace,” the widow of the fallen officer told FoxNews.com. Maureen Faulkner, whose husband Daniel was gunned down in Philadelphia on Dec. 9, 1981, said the latest effort to glorify Abu-Jamal’s past using a lesson plan posted on the Oakland (Calif.) Unified School District’s website is akin to advocating violence to young students.

After the Wall Street Journal ran an editorial implying Tea Partiers were racists for opposing amnesty for illegal immigrants, the leader of a national Tea Party organization blasted the publication for maligning and stereotyping grassroots conservatives. Tea Party Patriots co-founder Jenny Beth Martin told Breitbart News, "it´s sad and unfortunate that we’re seeing another rant from another person who is completely disconnected from grassroots conservatives and knows nothing about the Tea Party except what he hears on MSNBC." Martin was referring to columnist William Galston, who wrote that the Tea Party was a mob and "offers nothing except nostalgia for

Sen. Joe Manchin on Thursday strongly defended the Koch brothers from attacks by fellow Democrats, saying the wealthy and politically active businessmen are taxpaying Americans who are creating jobs. “People want jobs. You don’t beat up people. I mean, I don’t agree with their politics or philosophically, but, you know, they’re Americans, they’re doing— paying their taxes,” Manchin said on Fox News’s “Fox & Friends.” “They’re not breaking the law. They’re providing jobs,” he added. When asked whether Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s attacks on the Koch brothers “helps or hurts the cause for the country and the Congress,” the West Virginia

Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) on Thursday said there was “no issue of race” in the way House Republicans have treated President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder. A day after Holder said the two leaders had faced “ugly and divisive adversity” from Congress, Boehner said, "There is no issue of race here" at a Capitol press conference. The attorney general had departed from his prepared remarks before the Rev. Al Sharpton’s National Action Network on Wednesday to accuse the House GOP of treating him and Obama differently during the last five years. The House in 2012 voted to find Holder in contempt

Former President Carter says Hillary Clinton “took very little action” as secretary of State to bring about peace. Carter, 89, made the remark about the former secretary of State and 2016 Democratic front-runner in a phone interview with Time magazine Wednesday night after he spoke at the Civil Rights Summit in Austin, Texas. John Kerry has been successful as secretary of State, Carter said, because President Obama has been deeply involved in the foreign policy issues of his second term. “In this occasion, when Secretary Clinton was Secretary of State, she took very little action to bring about peace.

Attorney General Eric Holder appeared to suggest Wednesday that harsh criticism from GOP lawmakers´ is racially motivated. The remarks came during an event held by Al Sharpton´s National Action Network. “Forget about me. You look at the way the Attorney General of the United States was treated yesterday by a House committee. Had nothing to do with me. Forget that. What attorney general has ever had that kind of treatment? ... What president has ever had to deal with that kind of treatment?" Holder asked.

A House committee voted Thursday to hold Lois Lerner in contempt of Congress, as Republicans escalated their bid to "get to the bottom" of the former IRS official´s role in the political targeting scandal. The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee voted 21-12 to hold Lerner in contempt. The vote followed hours of heated debate on the committee. The contempt measure would next head to the House floor. House Speaker John Boehner predicted earlier this week that unless Lerner agrees to cooperate, the full House will support contempt -- from there, the case would likely head to the courts.

Conservative commentator Charles Krauthammer told Special Report with Bret Baier Wednesday night that the window had passed on prosecuting the Obama administration Benghazi, and that the GOP’s disorganzed approach to congressional hearings had let Benghazi as an issue “slip away.” “Politically speaking the administration has won,” Krauthammer said. “They ran out the clock. If we had had a select committee from the beginning, really had coherent hearings — unlike what we’ve had, which were disjointed hearings, that let all things sort of slip away —we really would have been somewhere.

After a $1,000 donation in 2008 to support Prop 8 in California, Mozilla’s CEO Brendan Eich was railroaded out of the company at the speed of an Apple Mac Pro on steroids. The New York Times is still criminalizing Eich’s personal political views. Mozilla is not a normal company. It is an activist organization.

House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., has accused the panel´s top Democrat of prompting the Internal Revenue Service in 2012 to target a conservative organization applying for nonprofit status. Issa said records obtained last week from the IRS show communications from the office of ranking member Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., about True the Vote, a Texas-based, nonprofit conservative group that aims to prevent voter fraud. The communications at one point involved Lois Lerner, the ex-IRS official who Issa´s panel is poised to hold in contempt of Congress on Thursday for refusing to provide testimony about her

How does the Republican Party establishment choose its presidential candidate? Typically, constitutionalists accuse their establishment rivals of being moderate, risk-averse, stubborn old fools who lack faith in conservative principles. This is a soothing interpretation, as it begins from the hypothesis that the contest between conservatives and the GOP elite is a family feud. But there is another hypothesis -- less soothing, but, at least from an outsider´s bird´s-eye view, more reconcilable with the facts. This hypothesis is that America has reached a stage of progressive soft despotism in which the only important family feud in national politics is between the fundamentally

A caveat right off the bat: RAND’s estimate only runs through March 28 whereas the actual deadline for signing up was March 31st. Given the crush of traffic on Healthcare.gov in late March, many more people could have signed up over those last three days than were captured by these numbers. On the other hand, the White House was claiming six million sign-ups as of March 27. There’s no way to reconcile that with RAND’s data. One of them is wrong. Maybe both, in fact. There’s a big spike in Medicaid, just as everyone expected. There’s a less big but

A new review is questioning the effectiveness of two key drugs enlisted in the fight against influenza and in turn the investments by governments to stockpile the drugs in the event of a global flu outbreak. The antiviral drugs Tamiflu (oseltamivir) and Relenza (zanamivir ) are commonly used to treat influenza in healthy adults and children. In the case of Tamiflu, the drug does shorten symptoms of influenza by about half a day - as the manufacturer suggests - but there is insufficient evidence to support claims that it reduces hospital admissions or serious complications, such as confirmed pneumonia or
