WaPo ^ | January 29, 2013 at 3:47 pm | Rosalind S. Helderman

A spokesman for House Speaker John A. Boehner warned President Obama Tuesday not to derail bipartisan efforts to overhaul immigration laws by pushing more liberal proposals than those under consideration in Congress.

“There are a lot of ideas about how best to fix our broken immigration system,” spokesman Brendan Buck said in a statement, responding to Obama’s Las Vegas speech on immigration. “Any solution should be a bipartisan one, and we hope the President is careful not to drag the debate to the left and ultimately disrupt the difficult work that is ahead in the House and Senate.”

I thought the end of year tax fight was stupid and I figured they would lose another debt extension standoff, both deadline driven events.

But this is different. There is no hard deadline in passing amnesty except rushing it through before opposition can take hold.

What you are seeing with Bohner’s comment above and the Rubio comments on Obama’s plan is a deceptive scam to fool Republicans into thinking that they are opposing O while passing his plan.

In fact tonight over on the Dem channel ‘The Last Word’ they were joking about how they (Rubio, McCain, Bohner) have to play this ‘Obama’s plan is unacceptable’ act when the two plans are basically the same, to fool stupid Republicans into not opposing it.
As if Obama would veto a ‘path to voting’ bill that reaches his desk.
Ignore the ‘path to voting’ in the bill, keep your eye on the border instead”

If they give illegals the right to vote, even if delayed by a few years in the Rub bill, it is over,
Deficits, taxes, mandates,.... etc fights will be pointless.
Talk about convincing the voters will be meaningless.
We might as well all become Democrats at that point.

And whether illegals come here and personally collect welfare or not is small potatoes.
The key is voting.

Many illegals who are already here (from childhood) will get educations discounted college like here in Maryland and if they get amnesty will pay taxes(government jobs) .
But they will line up and vote for the welfare state and progressive values.

Rubio on Rush today (Tues) said that they will open businesses and ‘understand the cost of government.’

This is very deceptive sweet sounding talk and how they are waging this fight: to convince us that illegals are natural (business owners) conservatives and that they (Rubio, McCain, Bohner) are fighting O on this.

I believe Boehner’s comment is part of ACT ONE from Kabuki Theater.

There’s certainly no doubt that most of the nation’s illegal aliens come from socialist countries and would vote for more of the same. However, I wonder how many would even apply for citizenship. Do they even want to be Americans? I don’t know. It seems like many don’t want to adopt our culture or language, preferring instead to bring their countries here.

Businesses like the cheap labor. How large is our undocumented economy? Are these folks going to pay far more for legal employees? I don’t know. There’s a reason why companies hire illegals and pay them off the books—it’s profitable and undercuts legal competition.

Then you have this secure border nonsense. I read Senator Rubio wants a commission that includes representatives from border states to first certify the border is secure before we get an amnesty. Who will sit on this commission? Will it be composed of equal numbers of Democrats and Republicans? We know where THAT would lead, as the RINOs would join the Dems to certify the border in short order.

There’s no will to enforce current law. We would be fools to believe government will suddenly start enforcing a slew of new laws. They don’t want to round up illegal aliens now. What will they do when millions more sneak in (in spite of the “certified secure” border) after this amnesty. Again, we’d be utter fools to believe them this time. It’s been done before! We KNOW how it turns out.

Drag the debate to the left? WTF?!

Bone-Head Boehner has GOT TO GO!

This disgusting Curse on our Nation named Barack Hussein Obama II, aka Barry Soetoro, has a real birth certificate, with his right footprint on it.
All you have to do is look for it.

Here's some critical sources and FACTS.
People can go to www.scribd.com and read their pages 20 thru 32 ,
For those of you who don't know, remember this:
8 Congressional attempts from June 2004 to February 2008 to alter Article II Section 1 Clause 5 of the US Constitution, proves to meRead it for yourself.
Then look at these links.
Just before the 2008 election Barack Obama's election team spent $1.4 million blocking access to all of Obama's records.

Barack Hussein Obama II is UNCONSTITUTIONALLY QUALIFIED.
There were 8 attempts by Democrats to try to "Change the Qualification Rules" BEFORE Obama was elected.
They KNOW Obama's ILLEGAL ... AND .... UNQUALIFIED!

Obama's record is hard to find.
Check this link out Sunday, June 27, 2004 Kenyan-born Obama all set for US Senate.

This document from the British National Archives Show Son Born To Obama Sr. in 1961 In Kenya


shows a birth date of Aug 4, 1961, the exact date of genuine birth certificate with Obama's right foot print on it.

This IS the very document that links the ILLEGAL ALIEN IN CHIEF to his birth certificate.

Let me say again: Think about this.
Here's something to ponder. Now think about those facts,and statements.
The forgeries I'm aware of, are the three Birth Cretificate Barack Hussein Obama II has forged.
I don't trust evidence put forth by Obama supporters.
The disappearance of too much evidence on Obama is strong enough for me to know that he was born in Kenya.

Read INS DOC FOUND: U.S. CERTIFICATE ISSUED TO ONE EAST AFRICAN-BORN CHILD OF U.S. CITIZEN IN 1961!
The documents provided in that article are very damaging to Obama, and well worth your time.

Most of these early "supporters" of the ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT IN CHIEF were party to the Communists "spooks".
There's a great volume of history you have to go through to understand this, and it goes back to about 1850.

Read these three articles on one of my earlier post:


Now go back and read The Communist Takeover Of America - 45 Declared Goals.

Are you getting the depth of this Fabian Society takeover?

You wouldn't believe the information here

It's deep, it's ugly, and most people WILL NOT ... CAN NOT ... accept the truth.

Anybody recall a press release telling the masses about federal intelligence notes sent warning police about this cabal?

humm, seems to me that the right things to do include the following:

make e-verify mandatory to end employer abuse of slave-wage, illegal immigration. i.e., why not remove the reason illegals come to America? unless of course you actually want them to come.

end the unconstitutional practice of allowing chain migration “citizenship” for the children of illegal immigrant parents. unless you think that anyone in the world has the authority to grant *themselves* citizenship in America through their children?

secure our borders by fully funding and enforcing *existing* immigration law as required of the federal government by the law of the land, The Constitution. unless you couldn’t careless about enforcing the Constitution. but then why would any politician not want to uphold their oath of office?

if you’re really serious about solving the immigration problem, one wonders why you don’t just implement this low hanging fruit. conversely, if you won’t even argue for these three preconditions before making a massive, costly, “comprehensive” effort which doesn’t include these simple things, then i submit that whether republican or democrat, you prove yourself to be an untrustworthy politician pandering for votes at the cost of an existential threat to our nation.

perhaps boehner is so busy salivating at the thought of pandering to all those latinos, that the right things to do just don’t occur to him.

I do know.
Here in Maryland we have been invaded by legal immigrants Koreans the past 10 or so years and they vote Dem, and their kids part of the cool Obama culture vote Dem. Dems recently passed about 7 tax increases here with zero opposition: sales tax, income tax, alcohol and tobacco taxes, gasoline taxes next

Many illegals were brought here as kids and graduate from HS here which is why the ‘pass nothing’ wing of the R party will lose this fight. They will always be see as victims so the Rubio-Obama side will give them the vote, for Dem of course .

I see nothing that shows me that we will do anything but lose from them voting. Sure GWB won some of their votes in 2004, but look at the massive give-away it took (tax cuts plus huge increases in spending) and he still benefited from 9/11, and by 2006 that party was over.

What will candidate Rubio promise them to vote for him in 2016?

In other words, we're giving you everything you want, so don't screw it up.

I'm sick of this, 2014 needs a house leadership change like a three day old diaper.

Boehner has to be the dumbest a-hole to ever hold that position. He has fallen right into Obama’s trap. Obama laid out a plan so divisive and absurd it is doomed to fail. Of course, that was his intent. Obama’s plan makes the traitor’s plan look reasonable by comparison and that is exactly what he wants.

While Obama and his minions are laughing at Boner and the GOP we citizens are left to mourn or dead country.

Wish Boner showed this much backbone when it concerns American citizens.

Anyone still considering voting for GOP not only is a Liberal...but has many screws loose

They are waiting to collect Social Security. Once legalized they become eligible. Then they can retire to their cesspool of a "home country" and live high on the hog off our children's tax dollars. Also, setting up voting rights to vote free stuff for their bambinos.

I hate these traitors, invaders and quislings...
