Why Don’t Republicans Respond To Border
Crisis? – People Want To Know Why The
“GOP” Does Nothing To Stop The Illegal Alien
Madness… We’ll Explain

Conservative Treehouse, by Sundance

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 7/6/2014 10:02:05 AM

Many people are wondering why Republicans are not doing more to stop the Illegal Alien influx, and more specifically not stop President Obama’s approach. We can answer that question….. ….But before we do everyone needs to stop being a co-dependent and accept what is in front of us. This guy, Tom Donohue, is at the root of the matter. Tom Donohue is the President of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the CoC. The CoC wants amnesty legislation, the CoC is also the primary source of campaign funding for the following Republicans: Mitch McConnell (R-KY), Rob Portman (R-OH), Bob Corker (R-TN),

And on and on and on. The list goes on.

Ya see... when the 500 million Chinese wealthy need a place to unwind, American hotels will need more maids and backroom cooks and this inexpensive labor source will fill those positions.

So the GOP support “Amnesty”, by not opposing it – thereby removing the risk. They support the crisis that Obama is creating; that crisis will ultimately deliver the change they seek to initiate. They are able to criticize the administration, yet don’t have to do anything to oppose it. That approach keeps them in office and attains the Donohue goals.

If all that this article says is true is indeed true, the goal of destroying the Republican Party is closer to success than I thought.

If true, the 1.5 million dollars each of those Congressmen get from the CoC would be devastating for each of them to lose. Some need to lose their seats, true.

So we have a powerful man in Tom Donahue. One man, along with George Soros, is complicit in using his vast wealth and organization to not level the playing field, but to scorch it beyond its ability to recover and grow.

Behind our backs, America is becoming Greece. Or rather, ancient Rome.

Every sleazy politician that takes blood money should have a challenger in the primary AND THE GENERAL election. They must understand that the COST of taking CoC money is higher than the benefit.

So what is to be done? Stay home on election day? Pound the keyboard and denounce the RINO´s? Vow to support only "true" conservatives when they are a relative few, and every one of the incumbents mentioned in the article is infinitely preferable to a Dem on a host of other issues important to us? I don´t have an answer.

I´m actually trying to figure out what the Republicans can do. Obama will overstep Congress and has said so. Republicans don´t really have the majority and Reid will see to it that nothing gets done.

I will vote for Republicans this November. Anything else will be a vote for the other side.

No, wait! we must vote for these 32 else the democrats will win. Don´t you see it is better we elect these traitors than stay at home and let the democrats be elected. Because the democrats will allow amnesty and the republicans ... will too ... oh. Same for larger government, deficit spending, higher taxes, more entitlement programs, climate change spending, more restrictive gun laws. Name it and the majority of republicans are marching lock step. Those who haven´t noticed are listening to their words and not watching their actions. It has gotten so bad that they openly announce that they will destroy conservative candidates.

Obama is the POTUS , not the Chamber of Commerce.
Every time Obama screws up , purposefully or otherwise ,
the right always comes out
and blames Republicans.
So now the tactic is going to be calling Republican offices and the Chamber of Congress and blasting them
because of what Obama has done .
What a brilliant idea ..
There´s never a tactic spelled out on the right , just grand conspiracies .
and flooding Republican offices
with angry phone calls.
What are the 45 Republican Senators supposed to do to counteract the 55 Senate Democrats led by Harry Reid ?
Boehner is reduced to trying to sue the out of control president.
Every positive bill they pass
in the House dies in the Senate and the right
always blames Boehner and McConnell .
Holder is still refusing to turn over Fast and Furious docs to Issa and Lerner spits in the Republican´s faces.
If the right actually wanted to do something strategic,
they would encourage
everyone to flood Democrat Representative and Senate offices with complaints.
The Democrats and the national media control the agenda
and have the power , not the Republicans.

#18, Let me tell you where you´re wrong.

´The right´ does not blame the Republicans for what Obama does. ´The right´ blames the Republicans for not fighting what Obama does.

´The right´ is also not calling Republican offices and the Chamber of Congress and ´blasting´ them because of what Obama has done. ´The right´ is calling Republican offices and the Chamber of Commerce to express their displeasure that a lobbying group that can contribute 50 million dollars a year to Republican elections has teamed up with the AFL-CIO and the ACLU to influence candidates to ignore their constituents and pass legislation that Republican voters do not want. What a brilliant idea indeed.

´The right´ does have a tactic and we have expressed it repeatedly. You don´t like it and I understand that, but it doesn´t mean we don´t have one.

No one expects a minority of Republican Senators to counteract the Democrat majority. But we do expect them to stand up and say that even though they cannot do anything about the atrocities being performed in the Senate, they are firmly opposed to them. The problem seems to be that they are not opposed.

Boehner is only ´reduced´ to trying to sue the president because he will not use his Constitutionally granted powers to control the executive branch. Neither Holder nor Lerner are Constitutionally beyond Congressional control. But Boehner, McConnell and some of the other old bulls in the Party do not have the stomach for the fight, preferring to pass legislation that they know will go nowhere and then wring their hands and pretend that this is the best they can do.

´The right´ is doing something strategic - and it is not wringing our hands and claiming that we have no power because no one likes us.

I´m not completely getting all of this stuff. I went to all the links - and while I know the CofC supports amnesty, and that´s dumb, there´s plenty of reasonable labor - I´m not getting the Common Core stuff at all.

Some of the listed in the article suck as Republicans (at least some whose names I recognize), but I also see how this can be inflammatory and designed to make people not want to vote.

Don´t be so fast to throw the baby out with the bath water. Time to do independent research. A battle worth waging takes planning and time.

Obama Weighing Delay in
Action on Immigration
New York Times, by William D. Shear    Original Article
Posted By: earlybird- 8/29/2014 10:47:44 PM     Post Reply
WASHINGTON — President Obama is considering a delay of his most controversial proposals to revamp immigration laws through executive action until after the midterm elections in November, mindful of the electoral peril for Democratic Senate candidates, according to allies of the administration who have knowledge of White House deliberations. The president vowed in late June to act unilaterally, declaring a deep frustration with what he termed Republican obstruction in Congress. He pledged to act to reshape the immigration system soon after he received recommendations from senior advisers at the end of the summer. But now Mr. Obama and his aides appear to

MOSCOW — As Russian-backed rebels entrenched themselves in a newly captured, strategically located town in southeast Ukraine on Friday, President Vladimir V. Putin bluntly strengthened Moscow’s hard-line position that the government in Kiev must be compelled to negotiate regional autonomy. Abandoning his more frequent conciliatory stance, Mr. Putin issued a rare, open, congratulatory message to the insurgents. They had “achieved a major success in intercepting Kiev’s military operation,” he said on his website.Behind the message, and the wider military operation, analysts saw several Kremlin goals. Most important, they said, is that Mr. Putin wants to force terms, first laid down in

(Via Judicial Watch) The Department of Justice (DOJ) keeps giving radical leftist groups that support President Obama huge amounts of cash collected from big banks to settle discrimination and mortgage abuse lawsuits filed by the government. Judicial Watch first reported the scheme two years ago when Countrywide Financial Corporation doled out $335 million to settle its discrimination lawsuit with the feds. The money was supposed to be distributed to more than 200,000 minority victims who supposedly were charged higher interest rates and fees than white borrowers based on their race not their credit.

White House photographer Pete Souza tweeted a photo of President Barack Obama and Chief of Staff Denis McDonough taking a meditative walk on the White House grounds Monday. It was a small reminder of the infamous walk the pair took nearly a year ago when Obama decided to go to Congress for permission to bomb Syria. That proposition turned out badly: congressional support cratered and Obama was left to scramble a diplomatic solution. On a gorgeous Monday evening nearly a year later, the pair in their shirtsleeves could have been discussing almost the same dilemma: How does Obama continue to bomb

South Korean automaker Kia Motors Corp. will open a $1-billion auto plant in northern Mexico, President Enrique Peña Nieto announced Wednesday. Kia will join other automakers rushing to build cars in Mexico, where low labor costs and extensive free trade agreements have turned the nation into a manufacturing powerhouse despite its high crime rate. BMW revealed plans for a $1-billion plant in San Luis Potosi in July, a month after Mercedes-Benz and Nissan announced plans for a joint, $1.4-billion plant in Aguascalientes. Last year, Audi broke ground on a $1.3-billion factory near Puebla. Honda, Mazda, Volkswagen, General Motors and Ford already assemble vehicles

Now the victor will need to unite a party fractured by a bitter six-way primary and move back to the middle if he is to defeat a moderate Democrat in the November general election. Ducey rode to an easy victory with a campaign that focused on his blend of government and business experience in serving as a state official

The hormone erythropoietin (EPO) could prevent brain injuries in very premature babies, a study suggests. Brain scans show EPO - used illegally by athletes to boost performance - may help infants when given after birth. The study, published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, involved almost 500 babies born between 26 and 31 weeks in Switzerland. The researchers are calling for wider trials of the hormone, which is already given to some babies to treat anaemia. Erythropoietin is a hormone that stimulates production of red blood cells.

Henry admitted he was “stunned” that none of his colleagues in the briefing room followed up on that remark of the president’s, especially considering how quickly after the presser the White House jumped right into “damage control mode.” And whereas last night Henry blew Kelly’s mind by telling her Obama would be attending one fundraiser on Friday, he told her tonight that actually, it’s going to

Jerry Brown’s desk to ban California from displaying or selling the Confederate flag or objects with images of it. The state’s Legislature passed the bill nearly unanimously last week. Assemblyman Isadore Hall III, D-Compton, introduced the legislation after his mother discovered the Capitol gift shop sold a replica of Confederate money that contained a picture of the flag, according to the L.A.

Karl Rove is at it once again. The so-called “strategist” is again confusing strategy with tactics, and is about to blow easy Senate pickups in Arkansas and North Carolina. This is not merely snatching defeat from the jaws of victory -- this is snatching defeat from the bowels of victory -- in astonishing tone-deaf fashion. There is absolutely no excuse for not winning these two races. So how is the one-time “boy genius” doing this? By running ads attacking Senators Mark Pryor and Kay Hagan from the left.
