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

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!!!

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.

According to the New York Times, Obama senses the possibility of Syria firing on US planes as they conduct ISIS strikes in Syria. It is likely somebody will shoot at them, and it is likely that who did the shooting will be up for debate. “He made clear the intricacy of the situation, though, as he contemplated the possibility that Mr. Assad might order his forces to fire at American planes entering Syrian airspace. If he dared to do that, Mr. Obama said he would order American forces to wipe out Syria’s air defense system, which he noted would be easier

A GOP lobbyist who has been advising House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) is urging Republicans to pass comprehensive amnesty legislation "pronto" if they gain control of Congress after the midterms. Even though Republicans may take back the Senate by running against President Barack Obama´s executive amnesty, John Feehery argued that Republicans must not oppose Obama and ram through amnesty if they control Congress. "They should pass immigration reform, pronto," he wrote in Tuesday´s The Hill.

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.

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.

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

The Obama administration is preparing to introduce major steps to phase out production of a popular chemical coolant used in refrigerators and air conditioners, citing growing evidence that the substance is contributing to the warming of the planet. The White House will announce on Tuesday a series of voluntary commitments by some of the country’s largest chemical firms and retailers to move rapidly away from R-134a and similar compounds used in nearly every office, home and automobile in the country, according to current and former U.S. officials familiar with the effort. The administration is simultaneously stepping up diplomatic efforts to

Bill Clinton never inhaled. Rush Limbaugh says he never smoked it. Marco Rubio won´t answer whether he ever did smoke pot but Sarah Palin admitted she smoked it in her youth and didn´t like it. Those pushing to have more states legalize marijuana consider this drug rather harmless, medically beneficial and liberal politicians consider this issue one that will attract voters. I don´t blame Rubio for not discussing whether he indulged n his youth or not. He is a public official with young children and carries a different responsibility than the rest of us. My own experience with marijuana was somewhat similar

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand dropped an f-bomb during an interview Monday, while trashing a loudmouth male colleague who criticized her weight. The New York Democrat said she was enraged when the politician had the gall to tell her she was too fat to win election after giving birth to her second child. “I had to just sit there and talk to him,” Gillibrand said in the interview, posted on the Huffington Post. “I switched the subject and I didn’t hear another word he said, but I wasn’t in a place where I could tell him to go f–k himself.”

Just call her a pit bull without lipstick! Sarah Palin is proving she has a sense of humor about the makeup-free photos that surfaced this week. On Monday, the 50-year-old politician was photographed by paparazzi looking fresh-faced without any cosmetics on. But instead of getting mad about the slyly snapped no-makeup shots, the former Alaska governor took to Facebook to joke about the incident. "Feel bad for the poor paparazzi hounding outside my truck this morning hoping to capture a tabloid ‘exclusive´ of me coming out of Bikram Hot Yoga. How about we take away their ‘exclusive´ and I´ll give

Bill Cosby played the devoted father and loving family man on television for years, but off camera, Mr. Nice Guy had a volatile temper, played the Hollywood big shot and was a hard-partying philanderer. With riches and success, Cosby indulged himself in illicit affairs in Las Vegas and partied with abandon in Los Angeles with celebrity swingers and Playboy bunnies at Hugh Hefner’s Playboy Mansion, while his wife Camille was ensconced in their home. Cosby´s world came crashing down when an old lover from the summer of 1975, Shawn Berkes, approached him with a child she claimed was his and
