RUSH LIMBAUGH: CRONY CAPITALISM, BIG MONEY BEHIND GOP AMNESTY PUSH
Breitbart ^ | 6-18-13 | Breitbart

Posted on 06/18/2013 2:22:40 PM PDT by grimalkin

On Monday, conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh exposed the Republican politicians, donors, and consultants in the permanent political class that want the immigration bill to pass so they can benefit at the expense of American workers.

He said "big money" has trumped politics and principles in the push for "amnesty."

"I think a number of elected Republicans are taking a look at their donors, and are listening to their consultants, and they are seeing that people that are donating big amounts of money to them want amnesty," Limbaugh said on his show on Monday.

Given the half trillion we spend on defense contractors every year, I suspect crony capitalism is behind the NSA constitution shredder as well.

Kinda funny that nobody mentions that James Clapper was an executive with the same company that Snowden worked for. Wonder what kind of stock he walked away with.

It’s refreshing to see Rush Limbaugh call out the GOP on this immigration bill that will help destroy American jobs and take the Republican party’s ability to win presidential elections with it. Rush is getting better with age.

This is what happens when corporations are too big too fail... with the promise of taxpayer dollars or cash that just rolls off the printing presses the US government has deleted the checks and balances that make free markets work.

market pressure is no longer determining what companies pay their workers... the government does. so instead of pandering to consumers... big corporations pander to government to protect their bottom lines.

There - He said it!

And he’s right, though I think most here already knew.

Just say “NO” to Scamnesty.

They learned this back in the 1970’s when it suddenly dawned on them that a few hundred thou strategically invested in K Street lobbying would producer greater ROI than investing tens of millions in new plants, technologies, hiring or training workers.

This is REAL easy. No amnesty until the fence is BUILT. PERIOD! NO COMPROMISE!

Under W we were told they would build the fence. They passed a law, but they never funded it. They got caught. I remember Chertoff saying ok you win were actually building the fence. I remember George W Bush at a portion of new double fence near El Paso. Finally I thought they're really building the fence. Alas, it was another head fake.

June 14th 2013

“The Secure Fence Act of 2006 called for 700 miles of double-layered fencing. However, the Department of Homeland Security built only 283 miles of fence. And, only 34 miles were double-layered, including 4.5 miles in Douglas, half a mile in Naco, 19 miles at Yuma, and 10 miles at San Diego, said Spencer.”

Why in the world would we believe and/or trust that they will do it this time?

The double fence would work, along with hidden surveillance cameras and ready response teams. Drones could be dispatched to video and follow border fence violators. can't afford it you say? I just heard we spent over TWO BILLION dollars on cell phones for the poor in one year.

BUILD THE FENCE**** Secure The Border.

Good for Rush—and not a month too soon!

His reluctance to buck the Establishment has given Rubio and his crew incredible headwinds. Let’s just hope the tide is turning in time.

Crony capitalism, public private partnerships, or whatever the heck else anyone wants to call them are truly non-partisan. Both parties (the large donors to each) have the same end in sight and the same interest at heart - themselves. As long as each major party is beholden to their large donors, we Americans are screwed. We have no representation today, nor have we for a long time.

It is time for a third party and it is time to expose what the large corporate and billionaire interests truly are and how each party is their b*t)h. Not long ago, the government was not the largest buyer of nearly every product on earth, nor in control of so much of our money - when that changed, corporate interests superseded ours as the vultures lined up for their slice of the pie.

If they built the fence, they wouldn’t have to snoop into our daily emails......

Amnesty is a logical extension of NAFTA.

All of the tech world execs are big behind this because it’s the only way they can get more H1-Bs and green cards. Selling the country down the river in the process? Apparently no problem!

What the Left is more concerned about is the fact that by 2016 conservatives eligible to vote will outnumber collectivists. This has the collectivists (Dems and Pubbies) scared so they both are working as fast as possible to ram this through so they can maintain a majority collectivist voters.

Stopping student visas from high-risk countries and the taking in of Islamic ‘refugees’ would go a long ways too.

I just think these elites are short sighted......do they really want a lawless country?...a country with no soul?...

am I so old fashioned that I think Americanism is worth saving?....

its all very disgusting...

its nothing to do really with the latinos....immigrants have made this country....LEGAL immigrants....immigrants who wanted to be here and better themselves....

working classes especially the young men are getting destroyed because we don't have jobs for them...good, hard working jobs....so why do we need cheaper labor?....

Funny how the “diversity” crowd want all of our immigrants to come from one country and be all the same race.
