Rep: Boehner Border Bill Includes
McCaul Security Language,
National Guard Deployment

Bretbart´s Big Government, by Jonathan Strong

Original Article

Posted By:mikkins2, 7/18/2014 6:37:57 AM

A border security proposal from Rep. Michael McCaul (R-TX) that has already prompted fierce criticism on the right is included in the forthcoming proposal from a working group of lawmakers appointed by Speaker John Boehner, according to Rep. John Carter (R-TX), a member of the group. “On the issue of border security, their bill has the McCaul´s border security bill in it,” Carter told Breitbart News in an interview, adding that it would also deploy the National Guard to the border. The inclusion of the McCaul bill is likely to prompt conflict between Boehner and immigration hard-liners. The main criticism of the McCaul

Comments:
Boehner and the Republican Establishment playing word games hoping to dupe Americans into thinking they are serious about securing the border. Unfortunately for them people are paying attention and Breitbart is around to report it.

Absolutely right, OP. Boehner himself asked rhetorically, of course, why bother passing anything to do with closing the border and immigration (legal and illegal) when they know Obama will enforce only what he wants.

What´s the plan, boys? For the GOP this is all election year politics.

Cornyn´s plan to grab some judges and adjudicate as fast as they can must have been hatched in the Chamber of Commerce offices. I know, Cornyn says they will send the kids back, but I bet the Chamber has other ideas. Kids here first, then the chehap labor moms and dads to follow.

It´s beginning to look like these guys are all working with the President to get as many illegals here and processed as fast as they can.

Why do we need a border security bill when we already have one which promised to build the fence? Just enforce it and build the dam* fence already! And while it´s being built, put the National Guard on the border with orders to shoot illegal invaders.

Spot on #1! Great point about Cornyn taking a page out of the democrat special interest playbook and using sentimental to the cause judges to subvert debate and attain what they want.

When one sits down and quietly thinks about it....
Obama didn´t need to hide behind a wall of immigrant children to get what he wanted. His party was always for it. Why would he need this "crisis"?

It is the Republican Establishment who needed this "crisis" to have an excuse to give the Big Business and the Chamber of Commerce what it has always wanted, "immigration reform".

The children showing up to over run the border out of the blue are about as spontaneous and coincidental as a flash-mob dancing to a pop song in a airport terminal paid for by a cellphone company.
Someone had to organize it, and more importantly, pay for it. A railroad company had no problem with 1500 "immigrants" hijacking a train headed to the U.S. border?

Anyone with an ounce of intelligence and has been paying attention to the Republican Establishment dealings with a "crisis" knows what happens next.

"Its for the children." and "bad optics" sound familiar?

Oh, why didn´t we think of that? It´s the Republicans who created this border mess. Poor uninformed folks that we are, we thought the president and the attorney general encouraged, promoted and exacerbated chaos on the border so the GOP could be charged with racist views and discrimination against Hispanics.

Silly us. Posters OP/3 and #1 have figured it all out.

"so the GOP could be charged with racist views and discrimination against Hispanics."

Thanks for supporting my argument:

"Anyone with an ounce of intelligence and has been paying attention to the Republican Establishment dealings with a "crisis" knows what happens next.

"Its for the children." and "bad optics" sound familiar?

Another round of "compassionate conservatism" anyone?

The fact that this argument is even conceivable speaks volumes of the state of the republican establishment. Remember Mississippi? Surly the Republican Establishment would never convince stalwart democrat voters to cross over to defraud their very own Republican primary?

This has nothing to do with charges of racism or discrimination. The republican establishment just blames the Tea Party for that. This is all about getting what Boehner and crew have been paid off to deliver. An excuse to pass "Immigration Reform" was needed. Now, all of a sudden, it conveniently arrives.

No longer does one have to ponder if the republican establishment will deliver "immigration reform". Nor does one have to how or why it will be done.

Its just a matter of when.

OK #4/8, I will bite on your patronizing replies. What exactly has the GOP Leadership accomplished to stop all this? Please name one successful move.

I see lots of posturing in front of cameras. I see a useless lawsuit that keeps getting touted as brilliant by the establishment cheerleaders, even though it will take years to get resolved, and never enforced.

I don´t see any real accomplishments, just like the last 5 1/2 years.

So, can we drop the ´Look, a squirrel´ routine and talk about what Boehner and McConnell has actually done to behave like an opposition party.

If you don´t like people assuming the worst motives about your heroes, maybe they should behave differently.

The people who call for Chris McDaniel to fire then aim in MS are the same people who are okay with the Republicans dithering over this illegal immigration mess that has been going on since November, fine with doing nothing about the executive orders for years at a time, fine with the failure of DOJ to enforce the laws on the books.

No bill is necessary.

Obama has complete authority to handle the problem, yet he does nothing. Obama will ignore any parts of a bill that he doesn´t like, so there will be no improvement at the border.

This is an exercise in election year politics by the Democrats. The best response is to ignore it, as they´ll hijack any bill that gets to committee and use it to garner votes.

Any border security bill that doesn´t have specifics in it should be trashed. Don´t wait for Obama to come up with a plan, he won´t.

We already know what sectors of the border are secure and what it took to make them secure. Put the language of operation jumpstart, which called for a surge of guard troops and border agents, constructing barriers and fencing and operation streamline which made crossing a federal crime in the bill. They worked. It´s amazing how knowing you´ll do time in a Federal prison as opposed to just being deported deters people. If you won´t talk specifics you aren´t serious about doing what´s needed.

Senate Budget Committee ranking member Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL), an immigration hawk, shredded House Speaker John Boehner´s working group border crisis recommendations in a Wednesday afternoon statement, calling Boehner’s plan an “institutional surrender to the planned illegality” of President Barack Obama. “The border crisis is the direct and predictable result of the President’s sustained policies undermining America’s immigration laws,” Sessions said in his statement on the Boehner working group proposal. Sessions said: The President’s continued determination to carry out this nullification remains the singular obstacle in the way of restoring lawfulness. It is therefore odd that the House working group did not mention

It´s not every day that a House Republican charges that the powerful U.S. Chamber of Commerce is "in the pocket of Communist China." But Michigan freshman Rep. Kerry Bentivolio did just that on Thursday when he announced he would return the Spirit of Enterprise Award he received from the group earlier this Congress. “It is with great pride that I reject their award, and call on them to stand on the side of America, instead of on the side of China and corporate interests seeking to exploit people for profit,” Bentivolio said in a press release.His chief of staff, Rob Wasinger, gave

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce has jumped into a Republican congressional primary in Michigan, trying to defeat incumbent Rep. Justin Amash. Amash´s crime: being stubbornly consistent in opposing big government. The Chamber´s endorsement of Amash´s opponent helps clarify some things that have long been true, but which have been muddled in the public eye and used against conservatives. The first myth put to rest: Libertarianism and free enterprise are defenses of Big Business. The second myth exposed: Challenging an incumbent in a primary is somehow impious or unsporting. Amash is arguably the strongest defender of free enterprise in the House. His rating from the

"I would wager that many of my Establishment friends will continue to advise restraint, urging us not to drastically roll back Obama´s liberal policies, either because they´ll be horrified about the next election or because they have really, in the end, lost their stomach for political battle and their taste for free market principles," Limbaugh writes.

I don´t think Congress should begin impeachment proceedings against President Obama right now, but I also don´t think that considering the idea is "crazy talk." The man has, in my view and that of many others, committed multitudinous impeachable offenses, and we need to strenuously object and bring it to the public´s attention every chance we get. The idea of turning our heads and looking the other way is repugnant. Yes, the elections are too close for Republicans to risk impeachment proceedings at this point, unless it became clear that the majority of Americans have the political will for that

Some Republicans are beginning to extend their free-market, limited-government beliefs to include opposition to corporate welfare, like the Export-Import Bank. Many conservatives hate the idea of centralized education standards driven by a coalition of unaccountable bureaucrats and big business. K Street lobbyist and former GOP congressional aide John Feehery warns that this is a dangerous for the Right to walk, asking: What would happen if Big Business decided to change sides? What would happen if the Chamber of Commerce suddenly stopped being a huge fundraising machine for the Republican Party and started financing pro-business Democrats?

The Netflix documentary Mitt ought to be required viewing for American voters, and particularly the low-information types who cast their ballots for Barack Obama’s 2012 re-election. Mitt chronicles the 2008 and 2012 presidential campaigns of former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney, and in it one can see the effects a long and grueling presidential campaign can have on a candidate and his family. One can also see the chasm between who a man really is and what he’s portrayed to be by his political opponents and the media.

Speaking at a fundraiser at the Los Angeles home of “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Scandal” creator Shonda Rhimes, the president took his usual shots at the Republican Party, suggesting its members are focused on the wrong issues and frequently “obfuscate and they bamboozle and sometimes don’t say what’s true.” And because people are not familiar with the intricacies of many public-policy issues, Republicans can get away with such obfuscation, he said. “The Republican

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.

Colchester – Experts estimate there are nearly 300 adult loons living on Vermont´s lakes and ponds, up from just a couple dozen 30 years ago. On Saturday, more than 200 volunteers spread out across Vermont for the annual loon survey. The results of the survey are trickling in, but Eric Hanson of the Vermont Center for Ecostudies and the coordinator of the Vermont Loon Conservation Project, said there are many more birds now than just a few years ago. He said 15 years ago there were around 100 loons. In 1983, biologists counted only 29. "It is a decent, stable population. I'm hoping that actually things do start to level out.

The chairman of the Federal Election Commission today blasted Democratic colleagues opposed to his effort to protect conservative media after they imposed rules on the publisher of Rep. Paul Ryan´s new book, opening the door to future book regulations -- or even a ban. "By failing to affirm this publisher’s constitutional right, statutory right, to disseminate a political book free from FEC conditions and regulations, we have effectively asserted regulatory jurisdiction over a book publisher,” warned Chairman Lee E.

ST.

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.
