Boehner Killed Amnesty for 2014? Not A Chance - Insiders Say Amnesty Still On Track

John Boehner

by Brian Hayes | TopRight News

Big news on the immigration front today. If you haven't heard, House Speaker John Boehner killed amnesty for the year. The Drudge headline yelled the punchline: "BOEHNER DROPS AMNESTY".

Or did he?

Washington insiders say he did no such thing, and that the push for amnesty is still on track.

Here's what Boehner actually said:

This is an important issue in our country. It’s been kicked around forever, and it needs to be dealt with,” he said. But “frankly, one of the biggest obstacles we face is the one of trust. The American people, including many of our members, don’t trust that the reform we’re talking about will be implemented as it was intended to be. The president seems to change the health-care law on a whim, whenever he likes.”

BTW, does anyone believe that “12 million undocumented aliens” figure? More like 30-50 million, wouldn’t you say?

Cornyn is hinting that Amnesty will be passed in December in the lame duck session.

This article quotes the Chamber and House staffers as saying it will happen much sooner than that.

What is WRONG with Boehner?

No matter what he personally believes, he can't be all "$hit stupid" to understand what a big "f'ing deal" this is for the country.

Does he have no concept of what the economy is like in 2014?

Does he have no concept of what "legalizing" ILLEGALS means to AMERICAN workers?

Does he know that there is absolutely NO "upside" to pushing amnesty. Not ANY. Especially for the GOP.

In fact the most democratic households don't like this.

Only the commie/unionists are pushing for it.

Boehner works for Soebarkah (aka ‘Obama’).

Clearly this is a feint to buy time and cover them while they import more terrorists, then declare 40 million illegals ‘legal’ via exec order.

He doesn’t get paid by the people who vote for Republicans.

He gets it from the big donors...so he’s doing what they want.

And he still expects you to vote for him and his friends. It makes him laugh to see what suckers we are when he screws us.

I mean, after all...where we gonna go? He’s got Lois Lerner’s back covered while her friends in the IRS take out his only political opposition...you know, the Republican base.

No laws should be allowed to be passed in a lame duck session. Hell, congress shouldn't even be permitted to be in session from the election until the seating of the new congress.

The bastards have screwed us too many times during this period.

They’ll pass it under the cover of darkness when Americans are asleep. That’s the way these corrupt politicians are doing things these days. They’re selling our country right out from under us.

The longer it goes the better.

Grassley and Schumer got into a fight after the Boston bombing. Some neocons dropped off the amnesty bandwagon when they realized muzzies get amnesty.

Raul Labrador is talking about amnesty in 2015.
November 14, 2012: Labrador is arguing with Steve King about amnesty.
http://www.c-span.org/video/?309448-1/Agendaforthe113

By the time 2015 comes around Obama will have granted executive amnesty to 80 or 90% of illegals. That will create opposition to permanent amnesty. With gains in the Senate they might be able to filibuster with 41 votes. You will have more southern Republican senators. Capito, Cassidy, Cotton, Broun and Bright dont seem like they worship amnesty or hispandering. There will be at risk Senate Democrats who wont want an amnesty bill leading up to 2016.

At least with a Republican Senate they might try to pass an enforcement bill first, that Obama vetoes and calls racial profiling. That is another way to poison the will of congress.

“Romneycare” Romney’s loss in 2012 for POTUS saved Rove from TV obscurity.

Rove has more power and requests for TV face-time when the RINOs lose, and lose big.

The reason is that most low information Republican voters do not understand that the dominant RINO Wing of the Republican Party has LOST every battle with the Commie Obamacrats from McCain’s defeat in 2008 until now, BECAUSE of the failed RINO Political Philosophy.

IOW, as long as the low information Republican voters support the failed RINO Wing of the Republican Party, the Commie Obamacrats will continue to very easily “Fundamentally change the United States of America” into the Quasi-Communist Utopia that Obama, the Democrats, and the Leftstream Media want.

We Republican Conservatives thus willfully tolerate our sorry RINO Congressional Leaders at our peril, and the peril of our Republic !

The Quasi-Democrat sub-wing of the Dominant RINO Wing have been conned into the believing that the only way to compete with the Liberal Democrats is to become more Liberal in the false hope of capturing part of the Liberal Democrat’s voter base.

The result has been to expel the Conservative base from the Republican Party.

Boehner and McConnell have chosen to become Obamacrat RINOs, because they know that they will never be able to win any battles that Obama, Reid and Pelosi have designed,

IOW, “If you can’t beat them, join them.”

Their RINO goal now is as follows: “ Get something done, because ‘The American People’ want us to get something done!”

To the great glee of Obama, this RINO false circular reasoning makes sense only to RINOs, Democrats, and the low information voter.

A Conservative Language restatement, (IMHO, of course), of the above failed RINO Political Philosophy in Conservative language is as follows:
* always cave in to ‘your best friends across the aisle’,
* make illegal Congressional bypass ‘deals’ with the administration,
* never appoint House Special Councilors to investigate any violation of the Constitution,
* avoid standing on Principle,
* propose and support spending continuing resolutions,
* oppose Conservative filibusters,
* bad-mouth the TEA Party Wing of the Republican Party,
* and above all, ‘do something, even if it is wrong!’

The 2013 RINO Cave In by Boehner and McConnell during and after the Reid-Obama partial shutdown of the Federal Government last Fall sealed the final approval of Commie Obamacare.

Thus, Obamacare became the Litmus Test for the RINO Wing of the Republican Party.

The “Hold your nose when you vote and hope for the best” old argument that states:
“It is better to have a RINO Republican in Congress who will always cave in to the Democrats than it is to have a Democrat in Congress” is now subject to scrutiny by the impact of first FIVE YEARS of evidence from our Obamacrat Democrats and Cave In Obamacrat RINO Republicans.

I’m sure it’s “stalled” just long enough to get them past the filing deadlines for Primary challenges.

So, you believe Boehner? He also says he won’t move without a majority of Pubbies voting Aye.

Okay, per your request I will attempt a “kind” literary critique of your post. But... my approach is idealogical, so I gather you’re simply asking what I think... and to be kind about it.

“Romneycare” Romney’s loss in 2012 for POTUS saved Rove from TV obscurity.
***Maybe so, maybe not. I don’t follow Rove. He’s a RINO.

Rove has more power and requests for TV face-time when the RINOs lose, and lose big.
***Rove represents what Libtards THINK is a conservative. But he aint a conservative. Palin is a REAL conservative. Rove is a FAUXconservative. Simple as that.

The reason is that most low information Republican voters do not understand that the dominant RINO Wing of the Republican Party has LOST every battle with the Commie Obamacrats from McCain’s defeat in 2008 until now, BECAUSE of the failed RINO Political Philosophy.
***I disagree. The reason why mainstream conservative America don’t understand this stuff is that they get their information from Free Media, from TV. It is the lowest access media available for most of America, and they don’t even know they’re being cowed.

IOW, as long as the low information Republican voters support the failed RINO Wing of the Republican Party, the Commie Obamacrats will continue to very easily “Fundamentally change the United States of America” into the Quasi-Communist Utopia that Obama, the Democrats, and the Leftstream Media want.
***Well, I find very little to disagree with here. My concern is that the bastion of conservatism, FRee Republic, seems to be following the same path as low information voters and GOPe. Why did JimRob endorse Romney, whom he VOWED not to support, whom he called a gun-grabbing, baby-killing statist? Because the GOP has more sway than conservatism, even with the founder of Free Republic.

We Republican Conservatives thus willfully tolerate our sorry RINO Congressional Leaders at our peril, and the peril of our Republic !
***The place to START is FREE REPUBLIC. And THEN with the nomination process. But we haven’t done that, have we?

From my homepage:

___________________________________________________________________

Here’s how I think primaries should be organized:

My suggestion is basically to hold the first primary in the state that has the highest percentage of GOP votes in the last election, the 2nd primary in the 2nd highest, and so on. 2 primaries a week for 25 weeks, with the last primaries being the suckup-to-the-democrats. And the democrats could easily have their primary schedule the same way, if they wanted.

This way, if a state is 60% republican, there is still incentive for them to get out the vote for 61% republican so they can bump up their state in the primary schedule.

Also: Rotate all the states (even the big ones) through an early schedule so that everyone gets access at some point to the front line.

OR

Let each state bid when they want their primary to take place. The earlier the primary, the fewer the delegates they control according to some logarithmic or steep curve formula.

Second thing is the order of the primaries should be determined by the percentage of republicans in the last vote. The higher the %pubbie, the sooner the state appears on the primary schedule, with a mix of big & little states and our staunchest republican states get to go FIRST. http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/1965735/posts?page=862#862

IOW, “If you can’t beat them, join them.”
***But we CAN beat them. Easily. The Kennedy wing of the republican party is just a bunch of bedwetters.

Their RINO goal now is as follows: “ Get something done, because ‘The American People’ want us to get something done!”
***They’re desperately trying to push amnesty and a couple of other things in this interim time because Low Information Voters (LIVs) will FORGET. But the closer this gets to the 2014 midterm elections, the more LIVs remember that these AdamHenries were pushing for such things that send American jobs overseas and open borders bring those guys here and generate social issues that the elite don’t have to deal with.


I hope my responses were ‘kind’ as you requested.

I can agree with that. I think Boehner got told to shove it at that retreat. But I’ll never trust the guy any farther than I can toss an anvil. We have to watch him every second, considering the fact he and Chinless in the Senate have declared war on the TEA Party.

Whew! Escaped with just a few nicks - - - thanks!

I agree strongly with your point on Primary voting.

By the time we get to vote here in TEXAS in the National POTUS Election, the Candidate field is so thinned out that I have to chose between 1.) voting by leaving the POTUS slot blank on the ballot I cast, or 2.) holding my nose and suppressing the urge to hurl.
