It´s Time for a GOP Establishment
Mea Culpa on Immigration

Breitbart Big Government, by Daniel Horowitz

Original Article

Posted By:SpeedMaster, 8/8/2014 8:30:44 AM

Imagine if Republicans had responded to the push for Obamacare in 2009 by embracing the need for “comprehensive health care reform” while acceding to all Democrat premises concerning the foundations of health care policy. Ponder for a moment where we would be politically if Republicans had spent the past five years promoting Obamacare and targeting the GOP´s own members with millions of dollars’ worth of ads beckoning conservatives to support Obama’s signature legislation. Well, that is exactly what Republicans have done with the immigration debate. Immediately following Mitt Romney’s defeat in 2012, the entire GOP consultant class fabricated a narrative that

Being better than the democrats can be achieved with no virtue. The GOP has proved that.

There are several forces pushing for amnesty and increased immigration: big business and its lapdog the C of C looking for cheap labor, and politicians of both parties salivating over the increased tax revenue they expect to spend, and Democrats and useful idiot Republicans looking for new Dem voters.

We should be able to have a discussion about immigration, the problems, the requirements, the fixes (if necessary) without knee-jerking about "amnesty". Amnesty is not the same thing and to my knowledge, few if any GOPers are encouraging amnesty or anything close.

Amen. Read Mark Steyn online about the teenage bagpipers at the Vermont border. They lose their bagpipes while the gangbangers walk in from Mexico.
Screw the stupid DC Republicans like Karl Rove and the Chamber of Commerce. They´re killing our country.

Nice to see the Karl Rove Fax machine is in high gear today.
In case you haven´t been paying attention,we have a porous southern border,due in large part to our favorite political animal:the RINO.
Where are the Speaker of the House,the Senate Minority Leader,where oh where are the Republican voices condemning ILLEGAL immigration?????

"Any form of legalization is AMNESTY"

Well, no it´s not. A green card allowing the holder to live and work in the US for a specific period is legalization but it is lightyears from amnesty.

the definition of an honest politician is "one who STAYS bought". Apparently, we have some "honest politicians" in the Rethuglican Party. They´ve stayed bought by the big dollar donor$$ of the Chamber of Commerce and other anti-citizen cabals who are fully intent on the ruination of the nation.
This is the sort of attitude that can lead to Madame Lafarge knitting at the tumbrels as the guillotines operate. It is getting to be jacquerie time. Nothing else seems to be available, and I don´t like saying that. I thought we were better than that, and I believe that we used to be better than that. But not now. This is how a Republic falls, and ours is definitely falling. Sad.

# 7 would have us believe issuing a green card (thus a right to take a job from a legal resident) to someone who broke our laws to be here is not AMNESTY. According to # 7 CRIME DOES PAY. The pretzel logic for "Comprehensive Immigration Reform" not being AMNESTY is (and will stay) beyond my comprehension.

Wow. Horowitz is spot on here. This should be a must read.

For those who still claim that the GOP Establishment is not for amnesty, we need to define "amnesty". For me it is not only providing penalties and no current path to citizenship. For me it means granting any legal status to those illegally here.

Why? First, many of those squatters who have sneaked into our country to suck on the American teat could care less about citizenship. Second, any legal status will be immediately followed by calls from Schumer and others to eliminate "second class" status for these newly legalized residents. Translation: they must be provided a path to citizenship and access to all benefits that anyone else legally here would enjoy.

By that definition, the GOP Establishment is for amnesty.

Unless there is a law and enforcement that green card holders babies are not American citizens, then forget about it. And some of the people saying some amnesty isn´t really amnesty, is kind of like Whoopi´s rape rape.

On September 12, 2014 Breitbart posted an infuriating report, “Facebook’s Marc Andreessen: Jeff Sessions ‘Clinically Insane’ for Supporting U.S. Workers.” The title of the report made it clear that at best, Andreessen lacks respect or compassion for his fellow Americans and those who support unfortunately all-too-rare politicians such as Senator Jeff Sessions, whose unwavering support of American citizens through effective enforcement of America’s already existent immigration laws have evoked such a vile and outrageous response from Andreessen.

A fact that every politician and news talking-head in the world seems to be certain of is that you can’t win a war by air power alone. Even the media-hired retired generals throw it out as an absolute truth of warfare, as if it had fallen from the lips of Sun Tzu himself. Ask anyone, civilian, military, whatever, and he will quickly inform you of the truth of that unassailable rule of modern warfare. But when has any nation ever in history attempted to prevail in war by the singular use of airpower? “It has never happened because it just won’t

Nigel Farage: GOP Establishment Candidate
Can´t Beat a Democrat for President

On Sunday night, Nigel Farage, the Chairman of the United Kingdom Independent Party (UKIP), said that the next time Republicans prop up a “continuity, establishment candidate” for President of the United Sates, they are not going to win. Appearing on Breitbart News Sunday, airing at 7-10 pm ET on Sirius XM Patriot Radio and speaking with Breitbart Executive Chairman Stephen K. Bannon, Farage said that unless you can “energize and engage, to use an old fashioned term, the blue collar voter, you are not going to beat the Democrats.”

Conservatives working to reclaim a rudderless GOP should contemplate forming a third party, Nigel Farage, the leader of the United Kingdom Independence Party (UKIP), said in an exclusive interview following a U.S. tour during which he met with top officials including Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) and News Corporation Chairman Rupert Murdoch. “I have no idea what the Republican Party stands for,” Farage said at the Breitbart News Embassy on Capitol Hill. “I meet lots of individuals within it who want it to say one thing or another, but collectively it’s pretty blurry, it’s pretty unclear,” Farage said of the Republican Party

Radio’s Laura Ingraham, a tireless champion of anti-amnesty efforts, blasted the Republican National Committee in a statement provided exclusively to Breitbart News, slamming the RNC’s apparent support of President Barack Obama’s plans to grant executive amnesty for millions of illegal aliens. "The RNC sure seems crestfallen that President Obama didn´t sign an executive amnesty for millions of illegal workers in the U.S.,” Ingraham said in an email. “I, for one, am glad that now we all know where the GOP Establishment´s allegiance really lies -- and it´s not with the American working class that is desperately looking for its champion.”

Despite admonitions from amnesty activists, more Senate Democrats are urging Obama against extending executive amnesty to millions of illegal aliens, especially before the November elections, according to a Politico report. “I have concerns about executive action,” Minnesota Democratic Sen. Al Franken, said in a statement Thursday, reported by Politico. “This is a job for Congress, and it’s time for the House to act.” In recent weeks Democrats in red states facing tough reelection races have pushed back against the president taking unilateral action on immigration reform. "This is an issue that I believe should be addressed legislatively, and not through executive order," North

President Obama insists that he still plans to make an executive decision on immigration reform, but his timeline for action grows increasingly convoluted. Obama and his team spent most of the summer previewing his executive action on immigration reform, vowing to fix what they describe as a “broken immigration system” without Congress as soon as possible. "I expect their recommendations before the end of summer, and I intend to adopt those recommendations without further delay," Obama explained in June, referring to a requested proposal from Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson.

Third Parties Won´t Save Our Country
American Thinker, by David Long    Original Article

Thirty-six seats are up for grabs in the Senate and all 435 seats in the House of Representatives will be contested. Of those 36 Senate seats, 15 are currently held by Republicans while 21 are held by Democrats. Clearly, the math is on the Republican side, as is the fact that the incumbent party typically loses seats in mid-term elections. This upcoming November 2014 election is crucial for America and voting for a third party candidate will not achieve the victory. To end the Obama “Rule by Decree” power grab, we have to wrest control of the Senate from the Democrats.

If our Congress wishes to fight its steady march into irrelevance it will have to actually go back to doing its job. Once upon a time, the first Article of the Constitution established all the powers that the Congress has and obligations that Congress must adhere to as they conduct their legislative business. Then, beginning in the 1930’s and 40’s, through the passage of the Administrative Procedure Act (APA), and other actions, Congress abdicated part of its legislative authority to an ever increasing number of federal departments and agencies.

A substantial number of political prognosticators, including the likes of the highly respected Nate Silver´s 538.com blog, give the Republicans a substantial chance of not only picking up senate seats in November, but of getting at least 51 and thus a working majority (50 seats would see a tie with Vice-President Biden giving the Dem´s a majority). Where the seers differ is not only the percentage probability of the Republicans gaining control of the senate, just how many seats the GOP will end up with.

Former President George W. Bush put together a 48 member coalition for the Iraq War in 2003. 40 of those members supported military operations and 37 provided some number troops. In April 2003, the list was updated to include 49 countries, though it was reduced to 48 after Costa Rica objected to its inclusion. Of the 48 states on the list, three contributed troops to the invasion force (the United Kingdom, Australia and Poland). An additional 37 countries provided some number of troops to support military operations after the invasion was complete. Despite these numbers the liberal media continues to push the lie

President Barack Obama unveiled his plan to tackle the Ebola crisis in West Africa on Tuesday, promising to do far more to tackle the deadly virus he said could result in "hundreds of thousands of people infected" without US intervention. "More than 2,400 men, women, and children are known to have died and we strongly suspect that the actual death toll is higher than that," Obama said in a speech at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, Georgia.

Democrats are now (very slightly) favored to hold the Senate majority on Nov. 4, according to Election Lab, the Post´s statistical model of the 2014 midterm elections. Election Lab puts Democrats´ chances of retaining their majority at 51 percent -- a huge change from even a few months ago when the model predicted that Republicans had a better than 80 percent chance of winning the six seats they need to take control. (Worth noting: When the model showed Republicans as overwhelming favorites, our model builders -- led by George Washington University´s John Sides -- warned that the model could and

First Lady Michelle Obama has made healthy eating and exercise her signature issue. But, a recent study published by the Sage Journal found that her “elitist” advice actually “shames poor and middle class mothers.” The College Fix added that the study found that Michelle Obama’s healthy eating program is also sexist. It’s also sexist, the study’s authors suggest, noting that “intentionally or not, it places the burden of a healthy home-cooked meal on women.” Sage Journals published the study by North Carolina researchers Sarah Bowen, Sinikka Elliott and Joslyn Brenton.
