Chamber of Commerce gives ultimatum to GOP
Politico, by Kevin Robillard

Original Article

Posted By:mikkins2, 5/12/2014 8:13:36 PM

The GOP shouldn’t even field a presidential candidate in 2016 unless Congress passes immigration reform this year, U.S. Chamber of Commerce President Tom Donohue said Monday. “If the Republicans don’t do it, they shouldn’t bother to run a candidate in 2016,” Donohue joked at an event on infrastructure investment in D.C. “Think about that. Think about who the voters are. I just did that to get everybody’s attention.”

Comments:
The Republican Establishment gets its marching orders.
They are not even trying to fake it anymore.

Got Tea?

In other words the Chamber does not give a damn for the American worker. They just want their cheap labor to pad the profit margin.

Do they not realize that these illegal aliens do not vote Republican?

We already have immigration laws that are not enforced. Use them and dump the Chamber, Boehner and Jeb.

News flash for the C of C...once they become legal they will no longer be cheap labor, they will demand and get much higher wages. How stupid can some organizations be?

A big middle finger salute to American citizens from the Chamber of Commerce.

Do not make the mistake of thinking some of these groups like the Chamber, or even some business newspapers, are conservative or patriotic just because they take pro-business and pro-capitalism stances that are sometimes in synch with conservative values. They are not. They are nothing more than money whores who would sell their children to the Arabs for a buck, and will sell out America for a buck and a half.

I see nothing in Dummyhue´s statement that explains the benefit of the proposed immigration form to the country. The only reason given in this article - or from what I have seen elsewhere - focuses solely on gaining new voters. If there is any other justification I would certainly like to hear backers explain it. The conservatives give plenty of thoughtful reasons to oppose it. We have ideas. They have itchy fingers and holes in their pockets.

"No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. " Matt. 6:24 KJV

That scripture applies here. The GOP Establishment must choose between CofC Wall Street corporatists and investors, or Main Street conservatives. They cannot serve both - especially when it comes to immigration.

We know which they will choose - and they will lose our vote. It is time to "call the question".

Mark Levin was raging tonight about the deceitful worm Donahue. He is a leftist who is pretending to help businesses in this country. His grandfather worked New York City and was a member of the Tammany Hall machine. Donahue was former president and CEO of the American Trucking Association, not the most conservative group in the world. The stupid Republicans are falling into this trap. I´m really sick of their arrogance and in their quest for power don´t give a flip about what the American people want.

#3 that is why they want total amnesty and open borders, once an illegal gets amnesty, and then demands more money at their job, they will be fired, and another new "citizen" will be hired at the low pay !!!

Of course the first guy will go on welfare, and cost the country tones more !!!

The CEO´s don´t care, just as long as they can get their stock price up in the shortrun, and get their bonuses.

It didn´t used to be like this, it used to be the CEO was more concerned about the long term of a company, and would do things to benefit the company and it´s employees.

This has been replaced by the newer generation of "ME First", which is only concerned about themselves !!!

The only interest that the so-called establishment Republicans have had with immigration is the cheap labor aspects that it affords their big business constituents. Since about 1965 the liberal Democrats have designed the US immigration laws, many times pushing through bogus enforcement aspects that were designed to fail from the get-go. Usually, as long as the liberalization of the immigration laws, or another amnesty, would provide a lot of cheap labor the establishment Republicans, after putting up a phony argument, would in the end always go along to get along with the liberal Democrats. That´s what we are starting to see now. The Democrats stay away from all the cheap labor aspects of immigration to placate their union allies. But one thing you can be sure of, whatever amnesty or other liberalized immigration laws come into affect, it will be designed to generate tens of millions of new foreign born voters for the Democrats in the years ahead. The Republicans should ask themselves what reason would a big chunk of the current Hispanic Democrat constituency have to flip and vote for the Republicans after the Republicans cave and facilitate a liberal Democrat amnesty, as most Hispanics are poor, generally uneducated, and unskilled workers who will have to compete for jobs against all that legalized cheap foreign labor?

Fending off persistent questions about his residency status, Sen. Pat Roberts (R-KS) noted in a radio interview last week that “my kids went to school” in Dodge City, Kansas, as a means of demonstrating his ties to the state he represents roughly 1,400 miles away in Washington, D.C. But a close inspection of that claim shows his children only attended school there for about three months, and attended and graduated from high school in Alexandria, Virginia, although they later attended college in Kansas. “We have declared Dodge [City] our residency; our kids went to school there.

Super PAC commits to spend $2 million

A Democrat-backed super PAC called Maine Forward has committed to spending $2 million against Republican Gov. Paul LePage and for Democratic nominee Mike Michaud in the run-up to the Pine Tree State´s elections this fall, according to the Bangor Daily News. LePage is a top target for the Democratic Governors Association, and a report published in Talking Points Memo that he discussed executing Democrats in a meeting with a sovereign citizen group called the Aroostook Watchmen have only burnished their hopes. LePage said that execution was not a discussion item in the meetings. But regardless, the news didn’t do him

Back in 2012, I shared a sadly amusing image about how the modern political process has degenerated into two wolves and a sheep voting what to have for lunch. I was making an argument in that column against majoritarianism (and that is a critical issue, as explained in this video), but there’s also a very mportant moral component to this debate. Walter Williams addresses this issue in his latest column. He starts by asking a hypothetical question. Suppose I saw a homeless, hungry elderly woman huddled on a heating grate in the dead of winter. To help the woman, I ask somebody for

On Wednesday, conservative scholar and talk radio host Mark Levin unveiled his three-step border security plan on a dry erase board on Fox News´ Hannity. Appearing in a segment after pro-amnesty Republican Karl Rove, Levin, the conservative who was Attorney General Ed Meese´s chief of staff in the Reagan Administration, held up a dry erase board that read, "Deport! Secure Border! Cut $ From Foreign GOVTS!" Levin said his plan was a "humane program" that would discourage illegal immigrant children from making the treacherous journey to America so that they are not killed or raped. And he emphasized that America

Lately there has been a lot of buzz about having Mitt Romney as the GOP nominee in 2016. And there can be little doubt that many things Mitt talked about from 2007 to 2012 have come true (crumbling of Iraq, Putin being our number one geo-political foe, Obamacare not being workable). And while there was no bigger supporter of Mitt Romney than I was (for the record I was a member of a group called Evangelical Christians for Mitt Romney and I also managed several precincts in Shenandoah County Virginia for the Romney campaign during the 2012 primary) the fact

Mississippi´s US Senate race has devolved into a shower of accusations piled on state Republican stalwarts of secret donations and vote-buying, and I´m rather enjoying it. Go ahead, Tea Party, I say. It´s time to shine some light on how elections are done in my state, and everywhere – even if it takes some whack-a-doo right-wingers to flip that switch. Though it´s been fun to watch the GOP establishment come under fire after Thad Cochran´s razor-thin primary runoff win last month, I´m mostly happy that others are finally clueing into what I´ve long known exists: evidence that elections in our state

Quasi-lobbyist runs as earmarker

Former Rep. Todd Tiahrt is a man on a mission — to reclaim the Republican Party for earmarkers. Tiahrt represented Kansas´ 4th district for 16 years, and for 14 of those years he sat on the House Appropriations Committee. From that perch, Tiahrt was a prolific porker, dealing out earmarks as if they were playing cards. In 2010, when Sen. Sam Brownback stepped down to run for Governor, Tiahrt ran for the open Senate seat but lost the GOP primary to his House colleague Jerry Moran. Lawyer and businessman Mike Pompeo took Tiahrt's place. Now, Tiahrt wants his seat back and is challenging Pompeo in the 2014

At the eleven minute mark of this 15 minute interview, Kansas Senator Pat Roberts is reduced to a stumbling, bumbling pile of a 47 years in Washington incumbent who can´t manage to coherently explain why he doesn´t actually live in Kansas anymore. And perhaps the worst of it is when he admits that he does click his heels together to go back to Kansas on occasion .... seemingly only when he gets an opponent. Roberts may not have distinguished himself as that much of a wizard in D.C. over the years but if a slot opens up in Oz, perhaps Dorothy will consider him as a write in after hearing this embarrassing performance.

The New Aristocracy
Bretbart´s Big Government, by Ron Maxwell    Original Article
Posted By: mikkins2- 7/5/2014 4:56:13 PM     Post Reply
In 1776 Americans declared themselves independent of more than arbitrary rule by a distant monarch. They also severed the ties of aristocracy. This was in itself a revolutionary notion. It meant that political power, its attendant privilege and economic advantages would no longer be transferred by the blood. Earldoms, dukedoms, and kingdoms were banished from the territory and from the future of the American people. The citizen became the self-identifying unit of self-rule. The generation of English colonists who gathered together in the summer of 1776 to declare their independence from the English crown knew that they had exhausted all other remedies.

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security.
