It Wasn´t Pretty, But It
Worked: How the Right Won
the Summer Immigration Skirmish

Breitbart Big Government, by Caroline May & Matthew Boyle

Posted By:Dreadnought, 8/1/2014 11:30:19 PM

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Nobody — even those among their ranks — thought it could happen, but House conservatives cracked GOP leadership to get almost everything they wanted out of a supplemental appropriations immigration bill before the Congress broke officially for recess. Conservatives capitalized on a perfect storm of the new House GOP leadership team´s inability to whip enough votes Thursday and the hardline stance of key conservatives. Their effort was aided by aggressive movement activists, the conservative media, and a national mood against President Barack Obama — which led many Americans to call their representatives demanding they come up with

Speaker Boner should be removed as Speaker based on the first bill he introduced and tried to get passed. He is all for amnesty and helping his friend and golfing partner obama who he trusts "absolutely"! If obama tries to grant amnesty via executive order any conservative Republican candidate for President should declare obama asked them to come I will tell them to leave and go home. Executive orders can be revoked by another President. My guess is if a moderate GOP establishment like Jeb Bush or Christy wins the nomination obama´s illegals will be more than welcome.

The fact that this had to be forcibly shoved down the throats of Boehner and the RINOs confirms every fear we have had about them. Needs watchung.

I´m so reminded of the marches in DC of 2010 and how they were patently ignored by the (*&*^% sitting in the halls of Congress. It gets even worse by the day. Why does the people have to burn up phone lines to let them know what you think of something. They don´t already know!? They were sent there to represent us but we know they are in the pocket$ of the lobbyist$.

Bachmann was similarly pleased with the the GOP’s new unity on the full immigration package. "I was a ´hell no,´ and now I can be for this bill today," Bachmann told reporters. “We completely gutted the bill, we changed the bill....the bill is "far better today than it was yesterday.” She further credited the American people’s willingness to call their representatives for the turnaround.

From a conservative, that is good news. Then there´s the telephone calls Americans made to their reps. Great news.

“A unified bold conservative alternative to the open borders radicals is the biggest threat to the Democrat Party,” conservative activist Daniel Horowitz... told Breitbart News....The message emanating from the entire Democrat Party is that we don’t deserve to have borders or sovereignty.

If the right can keep up the constant drumbeat of the Democrats, not conservatives, as being the extremists, that is going to help immeasurably.

Rep. Alcee Hastings (D-FL) decried the House GOP lawsuit as he addressed “all the white people in here” during the Rules Committee hearing —...

That qualifies as racism. But get this: the article says:

The loudest meanest voices in the Republican Party dictate the policies for the majority. that is what I believe,” Gutierrez he said, when asked how conservatives were able to influence the process.

They are scared to death of conservatives because they alone have the fire to get things done. They call them "meanest", yet not a word about Hastings´ comment about "white people." That´s not mean?

The message is that conservatives can get the job done when they hold firm and have America, which is conservative at heart, behind them. They need our help. They´re outnumbered in our Party. Maybe now, the establishment GOP will listen a little harder to those reps who are really representing us.

Bachman is a lame duck, not standing for re-election. The Swiss Miss from Minnesota is playing her part as a conduit to "conservatives"...and will vote for a "comprehensive reform" after the elections with a broad smile and a vapid "we did what needed to be done". Has the invasion stopped? Have the invaders been sent home? Has the border been made secure? No, of course not to all of them. This is a different bi-partisanship in action...and the boobs take the bait. The "right" hasn´t won - it hasn´t even achieved stalemate. When the appropriate numbers are reached, the flow will stop, Republicans will crow about restoring the border, Democrats will boast about social justice, and the American public will pay...the perpetrators safely in office for another term.

There isn´t a single person - - conservative, RINO, demonrat, commie - - who is willing to address the real issue - - namely, the welfare state.

All this blah-blah-blah about "immigration" completely misses - - indeed willfully ignores - - the biggest issue - - which is the rolling back and repealing of all the failed New Deal, Great Society and other commie-inspired legislation.

None of the "conservatives" - - not a single one - - has the guts to raise this issue and to propose the real solution - - the END of the welfare state.

Until some elected official does - - all of this immigration talk is just a bunch of meaningless posing and nonsense. Don´t waste your time and energy over it.

Putting aside the specifics for the moment, just look at the "process." Boehner hires a pro-immigration assistant to draft the legislation. He obviously did not conference with more Conservative members of the party, but said: "Here it is...now, vote for it!"

Kudos to Sessions, Cruz, Blackburn, Gohmert and others who rallied the American people and pressured others to not vote for a very flawed bill!

We have to have more of this. It cannot be "my way or the highway" from RINO´s and Boehner. The American people are behind the Conservatives and have spoken. I´d say that this is a vote of no confidence to Boehner, and he should be forced out.

But, at the very least, this proves that the American people are not hesitant to stand up and fight, if given some leadership.

I think this is some sort of victory, but I haven´t seen the bill, and I don´t trust anyone from Washington DC anymore. That is from either side and those in the middle.

Why, because this whole mass immigration morass was engineered from DC by Obama, the Democrats and there was some culpability by Republicans.

In a brave new world, Democrats would be thrown out of office and Obama, Holder, Reid and the rest would be thrown into jail for being convicted traitors. The only document protecting the little guy is the Constitution, and these petty thugs would shred that safeguard in a second if they could.

The UN has to be kicked out too. A UN chairman (who went to Harvard), said yesterday that the UN Condemns Israel´s Latest War Crime: Not Sharing Iron Dome technical data with Hamas. I bet her records were redacted by Harvard too.

Boehner´s problem is he thinks he can push everyone around. Cantor´s loss encouraged the conservatives more than Obama´s low poll numbers. The bill will never go anywhere, but I do like the part where they gave millions to the national guard. Better than giving millions to lawyers who will rule in favor of the illegals.

I really can´t believe the comments on this thread. John Boehner is between a rock and a hard place with this whole issue. Obama threatens to go it alone. Applies to most issues. More than likely this bill won´t even get past Harry Reid. The initial bill may not have either. Who knows with these Democrats.

How is it that the Republicans are getting blamed for this? This crisis has been caused by Obama and everyone makes it sound like the Republicans had a part in it. They are being forced to act on something because Obama threatens amnesty.

I get really sick of reading the pet names people have for John Boehner, John McCain, Lindsey Graham, or substitute any name you care to. "Treat people the way you want to be treated" is an old saying but applies here. It has to be very difficult dealing with Obama and the Democrats. I don´t envy the Republicans, quite honestly.

An overwhelming majority of the people who post on this forum - - have lost all faith and any feeling of empathy for the Pubbie party.

It´s not as if they have left the party - - the party has left them - - sold all of its principles for the siren lure of handing out welfare state goodies.

If Boehner & Friends are called names - - it´s the result of simple disgust with those spineless backstabbers.

I respected Boehner until he removed tea party members from key committees. Somewhere along the line Boehner lost his ability to be inclusive. It´s a big party include everyone. I remember a congressman on TV say he couldn´t say anything because Boehner would remove him from his committee. The tea party is the only reason Boehner is leader, he out grew the little people & catered to the chamber of commerce. The first immigration bill this week was a disaster , the second bill with conservative input was better. The bill included sending the illegals back, $$$ to the national guard & most of all it was millions not the 3 billion the WH requested.

Obama administration attempts

Posted By: Dreadnought- 10/3/2014 11:32:42 PM     Post Reply
The Obama administration sought Friday to tamp down fears of an Ebola outbreak within the U.S., making the case that America’s infrastructure and health care systems set it apart from the horrific scenes coming out of West Africa, even as a confirmed case in Dallas and recent scares in the nation’s capital prompt fears of a domestic problem. “The United States is prepared to deal with the crisis,” Lisa Monaco, homeland security adviser to President Obama, told reporters at a White House briefing on the response to the deadly virus. At the same time, officials said they understood the alarm

The U.S. economy is back on solid ground six years after the Great Recession, new data showed Friday, but President Obama and other Democrats are struggling to convince voters ahead of the midterm elections that they deserve the credit for the rebound. The government reported that the unemployment rate dropped to 5.9 percent in September, the lowest level since the dark days of the 2008 financial crisis. Job growth surged to 248,000 in what was the final snapshot of the nation’s labor market before voters head to the polls in November. Obama on Friday seized on the numbers, pleading with

A Washington-area hospital announced Friday that it had admitted a patient with symptoms and a travel history associated with Ebola. The case has not been confirmed, but the number of similar incidents around the country and a confirmed Ebola patient in Dallas have spurred concerns about whether U.S. hospitals are as prepared to deal with the virus as federal officials insist they are. Since July, hospitals around the country have reported more than 100 cases involving Ebola-like symptoms to the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, officials there said. Only one patient so far — Thomas Duncan in Dallas

MADISON, Wis. — Gov. Scott Walker is casting himself as a turnaround artist, seeking re-election with a pitch to voters that he revamped the state’s spending and business climate in just four years. For a governor with presidential aspirations, it’s a case he’s likely preparing for a national audience as well — but first he’ll have to get through a tighter-than-expected re-election race against Democrat Mary Burke, a former state secretary of commerce. As if that wasn’t enough, analysts say that his race could also say a lot about the political strength of labor unions, given that they’ve made defeating

The real reason winning the Senate matters

You can win midterm elections without a positive agenda. You can’t win presidential elections that way. It is therefore vitally important for Republicans to win the Senate in 2014. Here’s why. In midterms, it’s all right to be the party of no. The 2010 election, for example, was a referendum on the liberal overreach of the first two Obama years. Result? A Democratic “shellacking,” said President Obama. The massive stimulus, (the failed) cap-and-trade and Obamacare created a major backlash that cost Obama the House and, with it, the rest of his ideological agenda. It’s been blocked ever since. That’s the

Eleven whistleblowers in the FBI say the bureau is targeting them for termination in retaliation for their revelations about FBI wrongdoing, the top Republican on the Senate Committee on the Judiciary announced Wednesday. The whistleblowers, who have spoken out about various problems and wrongdoing at the law enforcement agency, said they recently have been served with Loss of Effectiveness orders, warning that their performance is suffering and that they could soon be fired. “These whistleblowers never have the opportunity to make their case,” said Sen.

As the Ebola virus spread quickly across parts of Africa in March, U.S. officials confronted a logistical nightmare: a complete lack of infrastructure in affected regions, no evacuation plans and air charter services that were unable or unwilling to fly into the region to transport seriously ill patients. And it turns out there’s only one jet in the world — operated by a small private plane charter company in Georgia — with a special transport tube that allows medical personnel to treat Ebola patients while in flight.

Despite national guidelines for evaluating potential Ebola cases and worldwide awareness of an epidemic that has killed thousands in West Africa, a man who later tested positive for the disease was released from a Dallas hospital even though he said he had traveled to Texas from Liberia. The man returned two days later and was placed in isolation before he became the first person ever diagnosed with Ebola in the United States. But as a result of this lapse, Thomas Duncan was able to leave the hospital and interact with more people while experiencing symptoms, which is when the virus

The confirmation Tuesday of the first Ebola case on U.S. soil emerges against a backdrop of increasing concern in America’s medical community that preparedness for a pandemic has stagnated or slipped in recent years because of tough economic times and increasing malaise since the 2001 anthrax threat. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, America’s premier disease fighter, offered the air of confidence in declaring that the first Ebola patient in Dallas was carefully contained. But earlier this year, it sounded less optimistic about the U.S. health system’s ability to fight a pandemic should a major disease outbreak occur.

The quintessential question of Watergate was “what did the President know and when did he know it?” Obamagate, the vast scandal that encompasses an entire presidency, offers a preemptive answer. Obama didn’t know anything and he never knew it. At least not until, like smuggling weapons to druglords, bugging journalists, IRSing his political enemies and killing vets, his right hand found out about what his left hand was doing from the morning paper. After skipping 58% of his daily intelligence briefings in Term 1 and 59% of them in Term 2, he went on 60 Minutes and blamed intelligence agencies for being

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.

Meghan McCain joined the dog pile on the Secret Service this week, saying she’s had “nothing but horrible experiences" with the agency and likening the agents to “glorified mall cops.” The 29-year-old author and television personality, who is also the daughter of former GOP presidential candidate Sen.
