GOP Establishment: Congress Should Give
"Blank Check" to Address Border Crisis

Breitbart Big Government, by Tony Lee

Original Article

Posted By:SpeedMaster, 7/12/2014 6:04:01 PM

While liberal activists keep pushing Democrats to make more concessions regarding the flood of illegal immigrant children across the border, GOP consultants in D.C. are suggesting that Republicans roll over and approve President Barack Obama´s request for $3.7 billion without any concessions. And they are doing so to liberal outlets like the Huffington Post. Since only $400 million of those funds would actually go to strengthen border security, Republicans have been wary of giving the Obama administration a "blank check" without getting some concessions, like having National Guard troops on the border or changing a 2008 law that

Comments:
Another hard hitting article from Mr Lee. The primary obstacle to the GOP in national elections is the CoC.

Extortion, plain and simple. "Give me what I want or I´ll shoot this child."

What would be do without political consultants?

Give the $$$ to Perry. They would be spent correctly. Lawyers will get all the $$$. The so called GOP establishment needs to get out in the real world. Last week it was 2 billion this week it´s 3 billion, next week? Why should any $$ be given to a man caused disaster in order to create blue states. Obama will not send of these illegals back, they are here permanently. Wind farms, cash for clunkers, trillion $$ stimulus bill, obamacare, electric cars, selendra, million $$$ parties & vacations.

While we are on the topic of money where has all our foreign aid money gone? And just how much has the UN done to help out in Central America? When you look at the pictures of the people crossing the border into Texas and the consider the conditions they are running from it looks as though not a dime worth aid found its way to Central America.What is going on in the world of International aid?

The GOP cannot serve two masters. If it bows to the CofC in this, then it does not deserve to represent us. It does not deserve to win the Senate in NOvember.

The GOP leaders may be wringing their hands, not knowing what to do, but we know what to do in NOvember. If they do this, it will be their last betrayal of our interests. We will let the GOP join the Whigs in the dustbin of history. We will deal with the Democrats once that has been accomplished and they are out of our way.

Enough is enough.

We can send the National Guard, who is already getting a paycheck, to the border and let them spin them around to walk south back across that border for zip. Let Mexico deal with it.

Where is the push to get our American soldier back to the US ?

Tony Lee is one of the reasons that Breitbart is now viewed like the Weekly World News.
The original Huffington Post article that was linked by Lee bears little resemblance to his typical overwrought and hyberbolic interpretation of the original work.
Andrew Breitbart co founded Huffington Post and worked hard to be taken seriously
as an investigative journalist.
Lee obviously doesn´t share that same vision.

Many, if not most, want our country back. We want dignity, civility and the rule of law. If we must give them the Northern states, so be it. If you live in a Southern state and even TRYVto instigate this crap again, you will be deported to the Northern states!! You will NEVER be allowed back in.

Oh sure, give Barry a blank check like you did for the No-stimulous. That got wasted on everything imaginable. So why not waste another $4B on the recent illegal hordes, then another $10B for the same thing, then another $50B for the same thing, followed by $500B when the border is never secured. Reagan got suckered by the demonrats saying they´ll secure the border once amnesty is provided. We all know how that turned out.

Islam: The Awful Truth

Islam is violent and repressive, and its sacred texts are the heart of darkness at the center of the Islamic State´s inspiration and motivation, despite Barack Obama´s assertions in September 10th´s address to the nation that the Islamic State "is not Islamic" and that "no religion condones the killing of innocents." Violence is an integral part of Islamic doctrine, following the example set by its Prophet Mohammed, and in the name of Islam and Allah, Muslims have been murdering innocents, since 656 AD.

Many Republicans are excited about the midterm elections. They see a good chance of taking over the Senate, which means they can neutralize Obama’s last few years in office. Many also are hopeful about the presidential election in 2016, though Hillary Clinton will enter that race with decided advantages. Regaining the presidency, some believe, will lead to a reprise of Ronald Reagan’s presidency, in which the country was turned from its leftward drift under Jimmy Carter. Yet even if this scenario unfolds as the Republicans hope, it is doubtful the deeper structural problems of the country will be solved. The entitlement

It doesn’t take a genius to know there’s a huge philosophical divergence between the socialist democratic party and the constitutionalist GOP (note the word ‘constitutionalist’). The tightly unified party of progressive socialists believe that massive, oppressive government is authorized to have a boot at every citizen’s throat, while Republicans are supposed to believe in the constitution and a limited government that adheres to the rule of law. But the GOP is no longer unified nor does it stand for adhering to the U.S. Constitution. Swept up by a ‘kinder, gentler’ political correctness, the GOP’s ideology has waffled on the role of

HOUSTON, Texas -- Former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay was found not guilty today by the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals. This is the highest appellate court in Texas for criminal cases and thus brings DeLay’s political persecution to an end. The court upheld the ruling last year from the Texas 3rd Court of Appeals. That decision tossed out the convictions on money laundering and conspiracy charges. At that time Justice Melissa Goodwin wrote “The fundamental problem with the state´s case was its failure to prove proceeds of criminal activity,” according to a September 19th report on Breitbart News.

Alton Nolen, the Muslim convert who recently beheaded an innocent coworker at a Vaughan´s Food factory, was charged with three felony counts this morning at a Cleveland County Courthouse in Norman, Oklahoma. Nolen faces one count of first degree murder, one count of assault and battery with a deadly weapon, and a final count of assault with a deadly weapon. At a press conference this morning, Cleveland County District Attorney Greg Mashburn said that the gruesome attack was race-related and not a religious act, but he did admit that Nolen was infatuated with beheadings, which was evident from his facebook page.

AUSTIN, Texas -- Last weekend, Texas Governor Rick Perry defended his support for a 2001 bill that granted in-state tuition to illegal immigrants for Texas colleges and universities. As reported by Breitbart Texas, in a keynote conversation at The Texas Tribune Festival, Perry was asked directly by Texas Tribune CEO and Editor-in-Chief Evan Smith if he now believed the bill should be overturned, and Perry answered "No," also commenting, "I still think in 2001 it was the right thing to do in the state of Texas." After Perry´s remarks hit the news, public reaction was swift. Breitbart Texas´ article on

Even though Republicans may take back the Senate by running against amnesty, former Florida Governor Jeb Bush pushed amnesty legislation while stumping for North Carolina Republican Senate candidate Thom Tillis on Wednesday. Bush, according to the New York Times, reportedly said that comprehensive immigration reform "will restore and sustain economic growth for this country." And even though a recent Gallup poll found that illegal immigration is now the top concern among Republicans, Bush said that if immigration reform is "framed in that way, I don’t think there’s a big debate in the Republican Party about the need to do this."

Deadly, irrational, and determined, the intruder snuck across a weakened perimeter. Eluding capture, the intruder was detained only after missteps and close calls. The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered. Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events. A mental case jumps the White House fence. He makes it to the East Room before he’s tackled by an off-duty Secret Service agent. Initial statements turn out to be misleading or false.

It’s the “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.” A New York appeals court next week will consider whether chimps should have the same rights as human beings. The extraordinary proceeding is the result of a lengthy battle by animal-rights activists who argue that animals with human qualities — including chimps — are entitled to human protections, including freedom from captivity. Steven Wise, part of the Nonhuman Rights Project, which is leading the effort, will have to convince a panel of Albany appellate judges that a chimp name Tommy is a “legal person” to get him moved from a cage

It is the stuff that nightmares are made of, and day by day it is getting worse. The Ebola epidemic, says Dr Margaret Chan, director-general of the World Health Organisation (WHO), is now “the greatest peacetime challenge” since the Second World War. Yet her own organisation’s tardiness, partly caused by cuts, together with reductions in--and misuse of--funds elsewhere, are largely responsible for Ebola spiralling out of control. [Snip] It’s just the beginning. At present the numbers of people infected are thought to be doubling in under 30 days--and the blue-chip US Center for Disease Control and Prevention predicts that, if Ebola

What on earth is an ohbee-guynee? Apparently it is a weird Obamaspeak pronunciation of OB/GYN (pronounced oh-bee-gee-why-en). For the president’s benefit, let me specify that means a doctor who delivers babies and takes care of the lady parts. When President Obama announced the departure of Eric Holder from his position as attorney general, he also mentioned his “good friend,” the AG’s wife, Dr. Sharon Malone, and he called her an “ohbee-guynee.” (snip) it almost seems as though someone raised in a fantasized USSR training camp for deep cover agents was inserted into the identity of Barack Obama and loosed upon

Why, she asked, wasn’t he being better protected by his Secret Service agents?

ATLANTA — Texas, America’s second-most populous state behind California, saw 13 of its last abortion clinics turn away women on Friday, after a federal appeals court upheld a law that practically guarantees that only a handful of clinics will remain open in the state. The strictest-of-its-kind Texas law requires abortion providers to build hospital-grade facilities and obtain sometimes impossible-to-get hospital admitting privileges. After signed into law last year by Gov. Rick Perry (R), the law forced most of the 41 clinics operating to close. Thursday’s ruling wiped out a brief victory this summer for abortion rights proponents,

But there’s one thing you won’t find at the checkout line, beginning July 1, 2015: Plastic bags to carry your stuff home. Gov. Jerry Brown (D) on Tuesday signed into law a ban on single-use plastic bags, making California the first state to prohibit stores from using the ubiquitous carry-alls. Shoppers will be charged 10 cents for every paper bag and heavy-duty plastic bag they use. “This bill is a step in the right direction,” Brown said in a press release announcing his approval. “It
