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.

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.

The trend creating “career politicians” has been growing for decades, and it has surely contributed to the entrenchment of power in D.C. and its separation from the will of the American people.

With President Obama vowing to ignore Congress and move on his own on immigration, potentially providing unilateral amnesty to as many as six million illegal aliens, criticism is mounting from the right over Speaker John Boehner´s failure to engage more directly on Obama´s threat. Now Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL), an ardent anti-amnesty voice in the House of Representatives, is accusing the speaker of his own party of throwing the game in exchange for campaign funds from the pro-amnesty business lobby. Brooks told Breitbart News in an interview: As far as the House goes, I’m unaware of anything the House leadership is doing

She has adopted a daughter from Guate­mala and was a speechwriter under President Reagan, who introduced an "amnesty" for three million illegal immigrants in the 1980s. With her striking good looks and her status as the most listened-to woman on American radio talk programmes, she might have seemed the ideal person to deliver a softer Republican message, as the party hopes to appeal to Hispanic voters. Laura Ingraham is having none of it, however.

Senate “Gang of Eight” Republicans are vowing not to try anything sneaky, as Congress considers legislation to address the border crisis. In a statement that underscores the remarkable distance the immigration debate has traveled since their bill passed the Senate with 68 votes last year, the four Republican authors say they do not support bringing up such a bill this year. “Last year, we helped lead the effort to pass immigration reform legislation that received 68 votes in the United States Senate,” Sens. Marco Rubio (R-FL), Lindsey Graham (R-SC), John McCain (R-AZ) and Jeff Flake (R-AZ) said in a joint statement. They went on:

A year after Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) was the face of the Senate´s Gang of Eight´s immigration reform bill, one of his top immigration aides will help the Chamber of Commerce push amnesty legislation. According to LegiStorm, "Jon Baselice, who covered immigration issues as Rubio´s legislative assistant for the past four years, filed lobbying forms as the Chamber´s new director for immigration policy." Baselice reportedly joined Rubio´s office in January of 2011 and helped Rubio draft the Senate´s immigration bill.

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.

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.

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.

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?

But on Tuesday, he declared that legally, the rumored White House order granting amnesty to as many as 6 million illegal immigrants “would be an impeachable offense” — and Obama’s talk of impeachment may be a way to preempt that pushback.

Israel unleashed its heaviest bombardment in its three-week-old campaign against Hamas in Gaza on Tuesday as the Obama administration battled the growing perception among Israelis that Secretary of State John F. Kerry is a hapless bumbler in search of a cosmetic truce. Diplomatic efforts remained stalled despite a death toll that Palestinian officials said rose above 1,200 on Tuesday. The shadowy leader of the Hamas military wing said his group will not cease fire until an economic embargo is ended and other demands are met. After his latest round of mediation failed to achieve a cease-fire, Mr. Kerry has been

President Obama demanded that Israel agree to a one-sided cease-fire during a heated phone conversation with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, according to a report aired on Israeli TV Tuesday. Both leaders quickly denounced the purported transcript of their private discussion as fake. But the TV channel that obtained it, state-run Channel 1, stood by its account. In one bitter exchange, Obama declared that Qatar and Turkey — Hamas’ biggest international supporters — would mediate with the terrorists on Israel’s behalf, according to the TV channel. “I trust Qatar and Turkey.

Inside Hoboken’s combined junior-senior high school is a storage closet. Behind the locked door, some mothballed laptop computers are strewn among brown cardboard boxes. Others are stacked one atop another. Dozens more are stored on mobile computer carts, many of them on their last legs. That’s all that remains from a failed experiment to assign every student a laptop at Hoboken Junior Senior High School. It began five years ago with an unexpected windfall of stimulus money from Washington, D.C., and good intentions to help the district’s students,
