IMMIGRATION: SENATE CLOTURE VOTE THIS AFTERNOON
situation awareness | June 11,2013 | self

Posted on 06/11/2013 6:59:52 AM PDT by Wings-n-Wind

After sending a subtantial volume of email in last few weeks to Sens. Chambliss and Isakson, I was unable to get through on any of their phone comment/contact lines this morning. And I will keep trying.

I hope this means we are frying the phone lines in opposition to the cloture vote on S.B. 744 early this afternoon.

Today is the day when your activism and loud(er) voice can make the difference. Please take a moment... Spend a dime.

"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious.
But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly.
But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself.
For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men.
He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist.
A murderer is less to be feared."

-- Marcus Tullius Cicero

Rubio’s first lie proven false. They DO have the votes. Nobody believes his sandbagging anyway.

“And I will keep trying”

Good luck with that. I’ve noticed when their votes are going to screw Georgians, they busy out their lines.

I don't think they know what they're doing. These sellouts are being sold a scenerio how invaders who are legalized will pay taxes and add to the economy. That argument is flat-out wrong, if one just looks at the numbers.

Already, one statistic showed something like 1/2% of the population controlling 38% of wealth in the US. If you take the top 20%, they control almost all wealth in the US. The bottom half have almost nothing left after the recession. What you have is a huge underclass that isn't employed and is becoming unemployable over time. No civilization has survived such a massive imbalance. We've done the Roman/British Empire thing of trying to delay the inevitable by grabbing the whole world's resources...but we still have that underclass.

And what is "immigration reform" going to do? Well, it's going to provide worker competition that will keep wages and opportunities depressed and even further increase the numbers in the underclass.

The numbers don't lie. The US cannot survive as a civilization (I contend that as a civilization we've already fallen) with an even larger underclass, and abandoning those elements of the population that have been unemployed for a few decades.

And what's the solution been? Now, it's morning-after pills for girls of any age, I suspect so the underclass stops producing children. It's creating situations where people won't leave their homes, for fear of safety or disease or whatever. It's creating a situation where most of the population has so much debt it loses freedom of movement.

The numbers don't lie. I suspect these 'pub sellouts don't even realize the implications of adding millions to the underclass. Either that or they believe (as the globalist elitists do) that the population can be managed.

Am I making any sense?

After all that has happened including ObamaCare, the IRS, the NSA and the war zone formerly know as the U.S. southern border, and McCain/Kennedy/Bush, I find that highly unlikely.

I finally got through to ISAKSON'S DC line.
CHAMBLISS' DC staff actually called me back.

Left them both a reasonably polite but emphatic ear-full.
It was a simple message:

NO!!!! NO!!!! NO!!!! NO!!!!

We'll see...

The time of the ballot box is over.

The time of the mail box has long passed.

The time of the soap box is rapidly ending.

That leaves only one box left.

Get yours, while supplies last...

I think some public demonstrations are in order.

This is how Maryland colonists, subjects of the King of England, responded to the Stamp Act:

“The crowd fashioned an effigy of the stamp distributor, which they paraded throughout the town in a cart while a bell tolled mournfully. Hood’s effigy was then flogged, placed in a pillory, hanged and finally burned. Crowds elsewhere in the province soon staged similar proceedings.”

It’s time.

I think they do know the implications. They want Big Government and they want Big Business. They want a ruling class and they want to be part of it.

Didn't Sarah Palin say she is pro-market, not pro-business?

i got through to Isackson’s office and the poor staffer I spoke with couldn’t tell me what Isackson’s position was on this issue other than he wanted border security and was opposed to amnesty.

For PRISM, I approved this message.

By every means necessary, "congress" is going to ram this amnesty through. DC has wasted so much of our money and our entitlement programs are running on fumes.
You better believe DC congress-critters see this amnesty as putting millions on the tax roll (i.e., a new population to fleece). This is nothing more than government trying to sustain ITSELF by introducing new tax payers. It will fail and we will be in worse shape but that won't matter, DC will still be sitting pretty and that is all that counts to those elitist a-holes.

Those GOP-e turncoats must’ve done some extensive internal polling and have come to the conclusion conservatives can’t muster the votes to turn them out via primary.

But oh, how they’ll proclaim their conservative “cred” when election time rolls around...

A pox on all of them.

That quote is on my homepage here on FR, and it perfectly describes what has been happening here in the US for the past three decades.

There are commies inside the wire, and they’re on both sides of the aisle.

“I think some public demonstrations are in order.”

Didn't you hear? Peaceful protests in support of the Consititution and all things American require the submission of emails, websites, handouts, prior speeches, current and former friends as well. Then MAYBE the Tea Party folks can petition the government - eventually.

The occupy crowd, on the other hand, gets carte blanche.

An outbreak of effigy whippings/hangings/burnings.

Put the thing on a trailer and drive around town with it. Shouldn’t have any problem, well except for the burning.

Blackmail (NSA) is a powerful tool. Add to that bribes/pay offs, by special interest groups.

ANY GOP voting YES on this is complicit in the destruction of the party AND the nation.
