Lamar Alexander Embraces Amnesty
Again After Primary Win

Breitbart Big Government, by Tony Lee

Original Article

Posted By:SpeedMaster, 8/11/2014 5:14:49 PM

It didn´t take long for Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-TN) to embrace amnesty again. As soon as he won his Senate primary election against conservative Joe Carr, Alexander said it was "embarrassing" that Republicans have not yet passed a bill. Never mind that Alexander spent nearly his entire primary campaign trying to convince voters that he was against "amnesty" and would never dare to embrace it before the primary election. “I don’t know how it will affect our politics in the near term," Alexander told Politico of a comprehensive immigration bill. “I think it’s embarrassing for us not to deal with the problem, and

Comments:
I encourage Conservatives in Tn to either sit this one out or vote for Lamar´s opponent. Will make no difference on the most important issue of the next cycle, so no loss. GO MICHELLE NUNN

Thank goodness Texas has at least one Senator who we can believe and is not deceptive in their comments. Senator Cruz can see right through the façade of deception--shaking up DC RINOs little playhouse; this is why they are all out to try to marginalize him from actively taking part in committees. The threats have already been made.

Reason to vote for Grimes (the dumb blonde) instead of McConnell who thinks he is going to be Majority Leader. If McConnell would lose, it would put the fear of conservatives in Boehner because he thinks he will gain the speakership again.

I guess RINO´s -- who are nothing but DemonRATs Lite -- have learned from their DemonRAT masters: Say anything to get elected, and then do whatever you planned on doing all along. The voters will forget that you lied to them by the next election.

It has worked for the DemonRATs for a long time. They lie, lie, lie, get elected, and then do their lie-beral agenda.

I guess that is why conservatives keep getting creamed. We foolishly believe that people want to hear the truth. They don´t. They want to be lied to...

Well played Judas Iscariot Alexander!!! Well played, you lying piece of garbage!!!

Again, conservatives predicted this perfectly. All the GOP establishment cheering squad has no clue how Lamar and the boys laugh at all of you. I do not say that joyfully, by the way. I was one of you for eight years of W. (Please no reminders any R is better than Reid -- so is my dog.)

It is absolutely essential that Alexander be re-elected and that Republicans take the Senate. Once Reid is out and a strong conservative presence dominates the Senate, Alexander will vote how he´s told to vote by conservative Republican leadership. In the meantime, let him spout off all he wants. Just ignore him, but VOTE FOR HIM. Do not be distracted. Keep your focus on the prize, and the prize is Republican majorities in BOTH houses. WE can get his mind right later.

Alexander´s re-embrace of amnesty is the epitome of RINOness. Outrageous.

However, the answer is not to sit out election day. As William F. Buckley recommended, vote for the most conservative, viable candidate. Viable.

No Surprise with this.

It would be interesting to see if Lucianne would consider conducting a poll among posters that have been on this site for over a year to see if they support: Republicans at any cost so long as an (R) is behind their name, or if they realize that the Republican Leadership has sold their souls to the Mainstream Media and are democrat-lite and will no longer vote just to vote Republican. The results would be interesting.

I think the vast majority on this forum want what is best for the United States. Unfortunately, I believe many have given up the ability to think clearly and are nothing but Republican-bots (zombies if you prefer). Yes, I am sure some clever wit will inform me that Conservatives can be classified as the same. It is a shame really but the schism in the GOP is too wide and too deep.

I refuse to denigrate Republicans who disagree with me or have fallen under the spell of winning at any cost. I will however no longer stand with you (instead I will be alongside the several dozen I know personally that feel the same way). Your victories (if any) will be hollow and weak for those you elevate and protect look upon you as useful idiots.

I respectfully disagree #27. In this case, if the Republicans win back the Senate and Alexander is back with the majority, he will have the power to do damage. I´d rather there was a minority party Senator with no power from Tennessee, than a RINO that´s already going back on his campaign promises.

We have all done this dance before. Vote for the R even if he is a rino and hope the conservative influence wins the day.
We´ve done it so many times it becomes automatic, yet the result is always the same. More taxes, more debt and less freedom.
Doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result does not seem to be working.
Several L Dotters have suggested other courses of action. Vote for the opposition. Sit out the election. Cut ties with the R´s and dont send them money. Still, the elite rinos dont get it or dont care.
I really think the Republican party is corrupt beyond repair. A new party may be our only viable option to get the country back. Former Republican leaders need not apply for leadership positions. Fool me once...

Politics takes a little savvy not just passion. From another article we see that the dems do not love Lamar

" Lamar Alexander won Tennessee´s Republican primary Thursday, effectively ensuring he will get a third term in office and a chance to set the Senate´s agenda on labor issues if the GOP wins control of the chamber this fall. Alexander has a shot at becoming chairman of the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee, as polls show Republicans have a better than even chance of taking back the Senate in November. That is likely to be a big frustration for Big Labor, since Alexander has consistently voted against its agenda"

Did zealots and ideologues get us a Muslim president out of fear of Mitt and the Mormon menace--gee, too bad if we had to have the Mormon Tabernacle Choir in the White house.

How the media would have hyped that. Mitt now serving as a steadying presence in a deteriorating world?

Ben Carson the answer in 2016? Can anyone else remove the bile built up against the inequality of Holder and the Muslim advancing of el Presidente? It will be a tattered old flag titled Hope that we have for a standard? Only thing left and Go´s overseeing.

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.

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."

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."

I know a lot of people are giddy at the prospect of Republicans taking the Senate this November, but that’s becoming less and less likely. It’s not because Democrats are rallying around a particular mission or set of candidates; it’s because Republicans and conservatives aren’t. It seems like I’m always writing on issues no one wants to hear are mistakes, such as messaging or social issues. But I don’t care. These things have to be said. If these columns are received like a gaseous cousin on a long car trip through the desert, so be it. Crack a window… If things continue on their current course, the GOP will not retake the Senate.

How can Republicans recapture the U.S. Senate from Harry Reid and the Democrats? A new Politico poll points to a winning strategy — if GOP leaders have the courage to use the remaining seven weeks to nationalize the elections around one game-changing issue. Under the headline, “GOP has edge on immigration in midterms,” Politico offered a surprising review of battleground House and Senate races. The generally liberal publication found that two-thirds of likely voters disapprove of President Obama’s handling of the issue — and that even independent voters trust the GOP over the Democrats on the subject.

The GAI report also included a breakdown of Obama’s PDB attendance record between terms; he attended 42.4% of his PDBs in his first term and 41.3% in his second. The GAI’s alarming findings come on the heels of Obama’s 60 Minutes comments on Sunday, wherein the president laid the blame for the Islamic State’s (ISIS) rapid rise squarely at

On the night when a police officer was shot in a Missouri town torn by racial strife, the president donned a shiny tuxedo to attend a ritzy black awards dinner, where he said police nationwide are to blame for community mistrust, even claiming that “most Americans” think the country is racist. Remember, when Ferguson exploded in racial rage in August, Mr. Obama chose not to curtail his 15-day vacation, spending day after day on the golf course in the white-skinned, white-wined, millionaire playground

WASHINGTON — The Senate’s minority whip is confident about Republicans being the majority in the 114th Congress — if conservatives can set aside differences and work to combat the massive influx of donor cash that has Democratic campaigns ahead in the money race. Only in the majority, Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) stresses, can conservatives make headway on tamping down overregulation, repealing and replacing Obamacare, securing the “chaotic” border, getting Keystone XL moving, and bringing civilized debate back to the upper chamber. And only by realizing the gravity of the battle for November, he argues, can Republicans relegate Harry Reid (D-Nev.)

The Secret Service was unaware for four days that a man had fired a high-powered rifle at the White House in 2011 in a ´fumbled´ response that left the Obamas furious, says a new report. Officers allegedly performed a string of security lapses after Oscar Ramiro Ortega-Hernandez shot at least seven bullets at the executive mansion in Washington from his car. At the time, President Barack Obama, his wife Michelle and their older daughter Malia were not at home, but their younger daughter Sasha and Mrs Obama´s mother, Marian Robinson, were inside. It comes as the Secret Service is facing more questions over

President Obama firmly believes the United States is better off now than when he took office, even though the American people cannot “feel” it. During an interview with 60 Minutes’ Steve Kroft, Obama said, “the country is definitely better off than when I came into office.” “When I came into office, our economy was in crisis,” Obama said. The president then cited lower unemployment, private sector job growth, and deficit cuts as evidence of his administration’s success. “I can put my record against any leader around the world in terms of digging ourselves out of a terrible, almost unprecedented financial crisis,” Obama said.

President Barack Obama´s intelligence briefings have provided him with specific information since before he won re-election in 2012 about the growing threat of the terror group now known alternatively as ISIS and ISIL, an administration insider told MailOnline on Monday. ´Unless someone very senior has been shredding the president´s daily briefings and telling him that the dog ate them, highly accurate predictions about ISIL have been showing up in the Oval Office since before the 2012 election,´(snip) ´Any time you´re hired by a boss to advise him about what to do in a high-stakes area, and he ignores you for

Well, that didn’t take long. Just two weeks into the new season of “The View,” co-hosts Rosie O’Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg tore into each other during a commercial break — in front of their stunned studio audience. The spat erupted Thursday after Goldberg interrupted O’Donnell to go to a commercial break before the mother of five was finished commenting in a “Hot Topic” discussion about spanking children on the ABC gabfest. O’Donnell refuses to wear an earpiece to stay in contact with producers while the live show is airing, so she had no clue it was time to stop talking.

Sacramento, Calif. - Gov. Jerry Brown on Tuesday signed legislation imposing the nation's first statewide ban on single-use plastic bags, driven to action by a buildup of litter and damage to aquatic ecosystems. A national coalition of plastic bag manufacturers immediately said it would seek a voter referendum to repeal the law, which is scheduled to take effect in July 2015. Under SB270, plastic bags will be phased out of large grocery stores starting next summer and convenience stores and pharmacies in 2016. The law allows grocers to charge a fee of at least 10 cents for using paper bags. State Sen. Alex Padilla, D-Los Angeles,
