Rep. Luis Gutierrez: Republicans
risk national irrelevance unless
they move on immigration

Washington Times, by Tom Howell Jr.

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 7/1/2014 10:36:58 AM

A small contingent of Republicans are letting intraparty threats and parochial viewpoints hold up immigration reform and damage their national brand, Democratic Rep. Luis Gutierrez said Tuesday. Mr. Gutierrez of Illinois said he never left the table when House Republicans demurred on an immediate path to citizenship or comprehensive approach to dealing with the millions of illegal immigrants in America. “Every time we said yes, they found a way to say no,” Mr. Gutierrez told MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” House Speaker John A. Boehner, Ohio Republican, has signaled his caucus will not move on comprehensive immigration reform this year — midterm elections are in

Comments:
Unfortunately, some of the Republicans are too ignorant to realize they risk national irrelevance if they DO move on immigration. They need to get some steel spines and quit feeling threatened by these radical anti-American Democrats.

What is ´relevant´ about supporting the party that allows the illegals to flood in (after advertising that they should) and not controlling the borders?

They want relevance? Fund the completion of the fence, and add sniper towers every 500m.

Rep. Gutierrez is watching his own 15 minutes of relevance disappear. This planned swarming of the border has "jumped the shark" for the average American. They are slowly getting the message that we need to employ, educate and help those here legally first. If the Republicans would turn their backs on the Crony Capitalists and drive home that message, they will pick up lots of support from both the blue collar democrats and both main minority communities.

When this pip-squeak was a member of the city Counsel in Chicago, he was considered and called a "weasel"

Things haven´t changed except he is now a higher paid "WEASEL".

He´s just a mouthpiece for the liberal white Democrat establishment.

Yes, immigration is fine, but it should be LEGAL immigration.

Why does the liberal democrat establishment want illegal immigration?
To exploit a group, that´s why.

Republicans need to illustrate that point!

We shouldn´t just limit the immigration to Hispanics from Mexico and Central America ether, but open up the legal immigration quotas for China, India, Russia, England, Italy, Egypt, Australia, Japan, Korea, etc.

Blunt the Democrat talking-point of being anti-immigrant, but champion LEGAL immigration process.

Top House Dem: Obama’s Immigration

Representative Raul Grijalva (D., Ariz.) thinks that President Obama should pursue his immigration goals unilaterally, even if it hurts vulnerable Democrats in the 2014 midterms. “That’ll always be the case,” the Congressional Hispanic Caucus co-chair told National Review Online when asked if Democrats were still nervous that the border crisis had turned Obama’s expected orders into a political liability. “You’ll always have members whose political vulnerability they tie entirely to immigration,” Grijalva said. “We didn’t make progress when we were in the majority because we were being protective of those —

‘He who controls the past controls the future,” observed George Orwell. “He who controls the present controls the past.” This, in one pithy, symmetrical little maxim, has been the story of Obamacare from its conception to the present day. Since its official launch, in October of 2013, the architects and salesmen of our ill-conceived phalanx of reforms have been engaged in some of the most pronounced historical revisionism of the modern era — truth being subjugated to expedience; idealism being repackaged in the pathetic language of good intentions; and the past being tweaked at every tricky stage. Thus has the

Kerry on Release of Sudanese Christian:

Secretary of State John Kerry lauded the U.S. role in promoting religious freedom worldwide after the release of Sudanese Christian Meriam Ibrahim. Italian Deputy Foreign Minister Lapo Pistelli helped arrange Ibrahim’s departure from Sudan to Rome, according to Vatican Radio. Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi welcomed her at the airport; she then met with Pope Francis at the Vatican for about half an hour along with her husband, American citizen Daniel Wani, her son Martin and baby Maya, born in prison two months ago. Before her death sentence was overturned, Ibrahim faced capital punishment for marrying a Christian man.

Sharyl Attkisson reports that the US Customs and Border Patrol has released three Mexican police officers who strayed into Texas while pursuing cop killer suspects. The officers were armed with AR-15 rifles and Beretta 9-mm pistols. The three claim to have had “tunnel vision” during the pursuit, when they walked across a dry section of riverbed from Juarez to El Paso. They were pursuing suspects who had shot and killed a police officer and wounded another during an ambush close to the border. A 16-year-old girl was also wounded in the firefight.

GOP lawmakers fight plan to

children to military bases
Fox News, by Judson Berger & Justin Fishel    Original Article

Republican lawmakers are challenging the Obama administration over a newly announced plan to expand the use of U.S. military bases to house illegal immigrant children, warning that it will put a strain on troops and threaten military readiness. The Pentagon confirmed this week that Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel has approved a request from the Department of Health and Human Services to house an additional 5,000 minors at DOD facilities. The announcement has fueled concerns that what was initially described as a short-term measure is becoming an open-ended commitment. “It’s very evident that this is not a short-term solution,”

Eleanor Holmes Norton, the non-voting congressional delegate for the District of Columbia, angrily sputtered during a congressional hearing Friday that the White House should not be held up to scrutiny, saying that there was no right to know what it was doing behind closed doors. "You don´t have a right to know everything in a separation-of-powers government, my friend. That is the difference between a parliamentary government and a separation-of-powers government," Norton said during a House Oversight and Government Reform Committee hearing. It was, to put mildly, a significant departure from the more traditional liberal stance

President Barack Obama will meet with the leaders of the three Central American countries at the forefront of the illegal immigration debate this afternoon.

Vice President Joe Biden, who met with Molina and Ceren last month in Guatemala, will also attend today´s meeting at the White House. White House officials said Thursday that president would impress

House Republicans are growing anxious about leaving town for the August recess without passing a border bill. Ahead of a pivotal conference meeting Friday morning, rank-and-file lawmakers are openly fretting about the questions they would face from constituents if they break from legislative work without taking action to address the surge of child migrants into the United States. Many argue that if they fail to pass a bill, even one that is a total nonstarter with Democrats, they’ll give President Obama five weeks of open airtime to pound them as do-nothing obstructionists. “It needs to be passed before we go

First lady Michelle Obama called on donors Thursday evening to cut the “biggest, fattest” checks to the Democratic Party, warning that a failure to assist financially in the upcoming midterm elections could result in the death of “Hope and Change.” “[Y]es, there´s too much money in politics. There´s special interests that have too much influence. But they had all that money and all of that influence back in 2008 and 2012 - and we still won those elections,” the first lady said. “Nothing has changed.” However, she warned, Democratic turnout for midterm elections has historically been low.

Congress is about to leave the nation´s capital for its traditional August recess. Since it´s an election year, the month back home is especially important to members of the House of Representatives. Re-election campaigns — and thus congressional careers — can be won or lost in August, so canceling the 30-day respite from doing the nation´s public business is the last thing congressmen in either party want to do. But, with thousands of illegal immigrants, including many unaccompanied minors, flooding the border in Texas, millions of Americans still unable to find jobs, the Middle East erupting, Iraq falling apart, Russia firing artillery

A House lawsuit against President Obama over executive actions could have the ironic effect of causing him to take even more. Obama is responding to the House Republicans´ lawsuit challenging his executive-action end-runs around Congress by looking for more areas where he can take action unilaterally, said a White House official. “We certainly aren’t going to trim our sails,” White House senior adviser Dan Pfeiffer told reporters gathered for a breakfast hosted by the Christian Science Monitor, adding that White House staff are currently on the hunt for more areas for Obama to issue executive actions. “If you’re looking for

Texas Governor Rick Perry went on Hannity tonight to discuss the illegal immigrant crisis at the US southern border. Perry shared these shocking numbers on the current crisis. “Sean, there have been over the course of the last five years, since the fall of ’08, over 203,000 individuals who have come into Texas illegally who have been booked into our county jails. Those individuals have accounted for over 3,000 homicides and over 8,000 sexual assaults. We can’t afford to wait for Washington to secure this border. We’ve had enough.”

The president’s demeanor is worrying a lot of people. From the immigration crisis on the Mexican border to the Islamic State rising in Mesopotamia, Barack Obama seems totally detached from the world’s convulsions. When he does interrupt his endless rounds of golf, fundraising and photo ops, it’s for some affectless, mechanical, almost forced public statement. Regarding Ukraine, his detachment — the rote, impassive voice — borders on dissociation. His U.N. ambassador, Samantha Power, delivers an impassioned denunciation of Russia. Obama cautions that we not “get out ahead of the facts,” as if the facts of this case — Vladimir Putin’s

A year after news of the Monica Lewinsky scandal broke, former First Lady Hillary Clinton allegedly told a Pulitzer-prize winning journalist that it was former President Bill Clinton’s abusive mother that caused his unfaithfulness and sex addiction, a new book claims. That journalist was Lucinda Franks and while her latest book, “Timeless: Love, Morgenthau, and Me,” doesn’t have much to do about the Clintons, the part that does offers never before reported information from a 1999 interview with the former First Lady. The New York Daily News obtained parts of the book a month before its scheduled August 2014 release.

When President Obama issues executive orders on immigration in coming weeks, pro-reform activists are expecting something dramatic: temporary relief from deportation and work authorization for perhaps several million undocumented immigrants. If the activists are right, the sweeping move would upend a contentious policy fight and carry broad political consequences. The activists met privately with the President and his aides June 30 at the White House, and say in that meeting Obama suggested he will act before the November midterm elections. hey hope his decision will offer relief to a significant percentage of the estimated

ST. LOUIS – The nation´s third botched execution in six months offers more evidence for the courts that lethal injection carries too many risks and amounts to cruel and unusual punishment, death-row lawyers and other opponents said Thursday. Death-penalty opponents say the execution of an Arizona inmate who took two hours to die shows that state experiments with different drugs and dosages are a callous trial-and-error process. The result: Every few months, an inmate gasps, chokes and takes an unusually long time to die. "These executions are experiments on human subjects," said Cheryl Pilate, an attorney for several Missouri death-row

One third of Americans think President Barack Obama should be impeached, a new poll says. According to a CNN/ORC International poll released Friday, 33 percent of Americans think the president should be impeached and removed from office, compared with 65 percent who say they don’t support impeachment. Fifty-seven percent of Republicans say they support impeaching Obama, compared with just 35 percent of independent voters and 13 percent of Democrats. When asked about when Congress should attempt to impeach a president, 79 percent of Americans said it should only be used if there is evidence of a serious crime — such as

As is always the case with anything involving former-Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, our unbiased, objective, not-at-all-liberal media couldn´t wait to mock her impeachment case against President Obama -- but not everyone is laughing.

Senior White House advisers are taking very seriously the possibility that Republicans in Congress will try to impeach President Obama, especially if he takes executive action to slow deportations.

Pelosi reminded reporters that it was the National Conference of Catholic Bishops that used the baby Jesus analogy. She then suggested that if Moses hadn’t have been accepted by the Egyptians, then there wouldn’t be the Ten Commandments. “You could even speak about, if it’s your tradition, Moses,” she said. “What would we do if Moses had not been accepted by the pharaoh´s family?
