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),

Comments:
And on and on and on. The list goes on.

This is a liberal agenda that Donahue is spelling out.

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.

Brilliant move by the left. Insinuate one of their own into leadership of the COC. Give him enough money to contribute to "moderate" republicans in the name of "business", and have them push the left´s agenda.

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.

President Obama insists on flirting with impeachment even as House Republican leaders insist there’s no such possibility. Obama uses a passive-aggressive strategy that can be judged as a political maneuver, a personality disorder, or both. Secure in the knowledge that impeachment is not the same as removal from office, Mr. Obama brings up the topic on his own and with bold defiance. Martyrdom goes well with a Messiah complex and Mr. Obama’s speeches are a non-stop litany of depicting himself as a victim of Republicans. Already operating beyond the constitutional bounds of presidential power, Mr. Obama’s strategy is to push the bounds

The Baltimore Ravens really are blessed. Let’s say Ray Rice, the team’s Pro Bowl running back, had tested positive for steroids. Under league rules, he would have faced a minimum four-game suspension. A punishment that severe might have gotten in the way of this fine team of men and their playoff drive. Instead Rice drove his hand into his then-fiancée’s head, knocking her cold last February in an elevator at an Atlantic City casino. In the National Football League, domestic battery apparently counts as half-a-roid, good for a two-game suspension. After the N.F.L. handed down its suspension and a fine exceeding $500,000, and

The notorious underwear bomber´s plot in 2009 to blow up a plane on Christmas Day failed because the explosives became ´degraded´ after he wore the same pair of underpants for two weeks, according to a U.S. official. Nigerian Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab was on a suicide mission when he attempted to detonate a bomb in his underpants as the plane, en route from Amsterdam, approached Detroit. The bomb however failed to detonate aboard the flight, which was carrying nearly 300 people, but caused a brief fire that caused burns to his groin.

GAZA CITY — Israel´s Security Cabinet unanimously rejected a cease-fire proposal Friday that called for a week-long truce in the deadly conflict. The proposal by U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry called for a temporary pause in fighting to allow Israelis and Palestinians to broker a broader deal. Israeli TV reported the deal was rejected mainly because Israel would have to cut short its effort at destroying Hamas tunnels. Meanwhile, Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Yaalon told troops Friday that Israel may significantly widen the Gaza ground operation.

The application window for HHS grants under the Unaccompanied Alien Children program just closed yesterday. According to the data included in the application the average length of stay for a UAC is 30-35 days prior to unification with a sponsor. Most (95%+) of the sponsors are relatives of the child. Most sponsors reunited are the mothers of the children (85%+) who actually brought them along and there is never a disconnect. All sponsors are subsidized by taxpayers at an average cost of around $4,000 to $6,000 per child/per month. A custodial ‘sponsor’ (mother) with three UAC’s will net about $12,000 per

There are no signature spirals or triple jumps in Michelle Kwan’s latest TV ad, just a straightforward pitch for her husband, Clay Pell, and his bid to be Rhode Island’s next governor. Kwan, a former world champion figure skater and two-time Olympic medalist, touts the Democrat’s plans for pay equality and strengthening laws against sexual harassment and domestic violence. It’s a clear bid to reach out to female voters, who will be key in the Democratic primary on Sept. 9. “Clay believes that I believe,” Kwan says in the spot. “We need equality for all women.” Kwan is no stranger to TV commercials

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

If the activists are right, the sweeping move would upend a contentious policy fight and carry broad political consequences.

The IDF has not yet located and destroyed all of Hamas´ terror tunnels, but the consensus about the intent behind them is quite clear. This is Jonathan Dahoah HeLevi of the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs. Ismail Haniyeh, the Hamas prime minister, delivered a revealing speech on March 23, 2014, in which he stressed the strategic importance of the Hamas attack tunnels, which, he argued, have changed the balance of power with Israel, when taken together with his organization’s military build-up. In the meantime, the IDF’s war against the tunnels continues. On Monday IDF forces thwarted another terror attack after two groups of Hamas

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
