Immigration will kill GOP, but
only if it goes along with amnesty

Washington Times, by Charles Hurt

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 2/5/2014 10:24:44 AM

Immigration as a top concern for American voters polls somewhere around 2 or 3 percent, according to the latest Gallup survey. That is right down there with “lack of respect for each other” and “hunger.”And remember, a good portion of that 2 or 3 percent who consider immigration their most pressing issue do so because they want the federal government to simply do its job and enforce its own immigration laws and protect the borders. So, why is it that Republican leaders in Washington have suddenly thrust immigration into the spotlight and made it the most pressing issue in the

Comments:
This is one of the best articles I have seen written on the apparent desire of the establishment GOP to self-destruct.

Amnesty is a deal breaker. If the IRS can track down someone for $200, the government can locate all the illegals. I say, if you are here illegally, you broke the law and must be deported.

Rush has said repeatedly that in some social circles he is part of the elites are all in favor of the GOP losing a few elections rather than have the GOP become conservative or TEA Party oriented.
As I was listening to conservative talk radio over the weekend (a Virginia show, not national), the conservative said we need to stop calling it the Tea Party. We should instead call it what it is, the Taxed Enough Already Party every time we speak about it. The more I thought about it, the more it made sense to me. If we call it what it is, it educates the public, and who can say they aren´t taxed enough already? Just food for thought.

House GOP Amnesty Advocates Upset
Ted Cruz May Have Killed Bill
Breitbart´s Big Government, by Tony Lee    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 2/13/2014 4:09:01 PM     Post Reply
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) may have stopped immigration reform legislation in the House by calling it what it is with one word: "amnesty." House Republicans who supported the "immigration principles" reportedly "grumbled Tuesday that the plan was dead on arrival because Cruz blasted it as ´amnesty,´ spurring a blizzard of negative phone calls to House Republicans." "After that it was ´We´ll get back to you on immigration reform,´" a Republican congressman who declined to be identified told Stuart Powell of Hearst newspapers. After the House Republican leadership unveiled its "immigration principles," Boehner eventually had to declare--in what some conservatives still

President Obama is traveling to California on Friday to discuss the severe drought that is threatening farmers´ livelihood and meet with the king of Jordan. But he is also going to spend the weekend relaxing at Sunnylands, a desert estate in Rancho Mirage, Calif. The president will spend the evening of Valentine´s Day dining with King Abdullah II of Jordan followed by two days of golf, according to a senior administration official to the New York Times. The forecast in Rancho Mirage is calling for temperatures in the upper 80´s. The Times reports that Michelle Obama and his daughters "will be away on their

JONATHAN TURLEY: Thank you. KELLY: Let me ask you about this because in that soundbite we played before we went to commercial, you said the framers would be horrified because everything they did was to create balance between the branches of government and we´ve lost that. TURLEY: Well, I´m afraid it´s quite serious because the framers created a system that was designed to avoid one principle thing, the concentration of power in any one branch. Because that balancing between these branches in this fixed orbit is what not only gives stability to our system but it protects us against authoritarian power, it

Government watchdog Judicial Watch has released an unclassified map showing the military fleet positions the night of the 9/11 Benghazi terror attack. The map shows dozens of military ships, including two aircraft carriers and 13 destroyers, were stationed in the North Africa Area of Responsibility when radical Islamic militants stormed the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, killing four Americans including U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens. Diplomatic Security agent David Ubben, a survivor of the attack, waited severely wounded on a roof with Navy SEALS Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty for 20 hours before help arrived.

Jon Karl to Jay Carney: When
Can We Admit Obama’s Syria
Policy an ‘Absolute Failure?’

During Wednesday’s White House press briefing, ABC News’ Chief White House correspondent Jonathan Karl probed Press Sec. Jay Carney over the progress of President Barack Obama’s policy aimed at addressing the threat posed by the Syrian civil war. Karl pointedly asked Carney whether it was time to acknowledge that Obama’s Syria policy has been an “absolute failure.” “Isn’t it time to acknowledge that, when it comes to easing the humanitarian crisis in Syria, that the president’s policy has been an absolute failure?” Karl asked. “I mean, you had the Director of National Intelligence tell Congress that the situation on the ground

Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) was just one of 199 Republicans who voted against raising the debt ceiling yesterday, in open defiance of House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH). But when Gohmert appeared on Fox Business Network with Lou Dobbs Tuesday night, he received what seemed like 100% of the blame for what the host called pure “political theater” by the ultra-conservative wing of the GOP. “How in the world do you expect the Republican Party to not find itself in the same strategic blind and bind that it was in last year when you guys shut down the federal government?” Dobbs demanded

Soap Opera Actress Punches
Ex-Boyfriend George Soros in Face

That’s not an exaggerated headline at all: according to Manhattan court records, an angry Brazilian soap opera actress named Adriana Ferreyr literally punched her ex-boyfriend George Soros in the head during a deposition, and hit at least three other people. As stated in testimony from Soros’s lawyers, the punch-fest took place last week during a private deposition for a multi-million dollar lawsuit Ferreyr filed against Soros in 2011. Ferreyr, 30, is demanding that Soros, 83, give her the $1.9 million condo in the Upper East Side he promised her while they were dating. (Soros eventually gave the condo to his new

Debt Up $2.7T in 2.5 Yrs Under
Boehner Debt-Limit Deals

The debt of the U.S. government has increased by $2.678 trillion in the 2.5 years since House Speaker John Boehner (R.-Ohio) completed his first deal to put legislation increasing the debt limit through a Republican-controlled House of Representatives. On Aug. 2, 2011, President Barack Obama signed legislation, approved by the Boehner-led House, permitting the Treasury to increase the debt by $900 billion. Since then, the debt limit has been repeatedly suspended by legislation that needed to pass through the Republican-controlled House. Yesterday, the House once again passed legislation to suspend the debt limit—this time through March 15, 2015, which is after November’s

Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-Ill.) says President Obama "should continue to expand on his executive authority to stop the deportation of certain groups of immigrants in this country.” Gutierrez made the comments during a Wednesday morning appearance on C-Span while discussing the future of immigration reform. The Illinois Democrat was asked if the president should stop America’s deportation policy. “I think the president should continue to expand on his executive authority to stop the deportations of certain groups of immigrants in this country,” Gutierrez said. “I think there are American citizen children, millions of them, millions of American citizen children, which

So Kirsten Powers Says that She’s
Tired of Defending Obamacare Too
PJ Media, by Bryan Preston    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 2/12/2014 8:11:32 PM     Post Reply
Kirsten Powers has more of an excuse to defend Obamacare than Ron Fournier. The latter is supposedly a journalist. Powers worked for Hillary Clinton and is a career Democrat operative. Up to now, attacking Obamacare would have been a career-limiting move — especially with Hillary poised to run for a sequel to the squalor that was the 1990s Clinton White House. But now that Hillary’s gearing up for a presidential run, she will necessarily have to distance herself from Obama and his policies. Anyone who wants to work for Hillary must do likewise. Powers also says she is pro-life, yet supports Democrats

Senate Conservatives Fund levels
harshest attack yet on Mitch McConnell

On Tuesday, the Senate Conservatives Fund called for the ouster of House Speaker John Boehner. Now the SCF, originally founded by Sen. Jim DeMint and run by a close DeMint associate, has launched the harshest attack yet on its No. 1 target, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell. In a new ad based in part on supposition, misleading reporting, questionable assertions and a single (erroneously cited) poll, the SCF likens McConnell´s leadership of the Senate to Internal Revenue Service harassment of conservatives. "Bullying. Threats. Intimidation," the ad begins. "The IRS? No. Try Mitch McConnell, the Senate Republican Leader. That´s right. Mitch McConnell

It´s no surprise that Barack Obama´s authoritarian streak is revealing itself at last. It was always there; clearly apparent in his rhetoric (e.g., his envy of Chinese president Xi Jin-ping´s powers), his abuse of executive orders, his threats against Congress, his sultan with fly-whisk attitudes toward his opposition, and even his vacations, which reek more of third-world trash gamboling on the Riviera than any American leader (George W. Bush settled his mind by clearing brush in Texas, Reagan at his ranch in Santa Barbara. Obama unfortunately finds the brush already cleared in Martha´s Vineyard and Hawaii.)

I mean, that shape is what we call the princess shape. It´s got that sort of poof at the bottom that´s very sort of billowy at the same time. It´s strapless.

Michelle Obama chose Venezuelan-American designer Carolina Herrera for the gown she wore Tuesday to the state dinner honoring French President Francois Hollande. The formal, ornate style of the sumptuous gown by Ms Herrera reflected French aesthetics, from the intricate beaded black bodice, to the train and full skirt in a color called liberty blue. ´From the White House to Versailles it´s not that far,´ said Susan Swimmer, author of Michelle Obama: First Lady of Fashion and Style. ´It´s much more keeping in a French aesthetic than I´ve seen her wear before.

Previously she donned one-shouldered pieces from Peter Soronen and Doo-Ri Chung, and a strapless gown by Naeem Khan for the administration’s first official state dinner in 2009 for India. The dress includes a black hand-sewn beaded embroidery applique scallop-edged top over a liberty blue silk faille corset, according to a statement from the designer.

President Obama has repeatedly suspended parts of the Affordable Care Act without the consent of Congress. The latest unilateral action happened Monday night, when the administration announced another delay of the employer mandate, the law´s provision that businesses with more than 50 employees must provide their employees with insurance starting in 2014 or pay large fines. In July, the president decreed the mandate wouldn´t be enforced at all in 2014, and last night administration officials declared that businesses with 50 to 99 employees wouldn´t be penalized in 2015.

Fiery Louis Farrakhan of Nation of Islam fame said during his weekly video sermon that white people have a history of stirring up trouble, and that Allah has chosen blacks “to give life” and sit at the “top of civilization.” He also “issued the final call,” as he termed it: “I say to the Pope and all the lovers of Jesus, if you desire, let’s have a showdown.

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
