What makes Republicans(rinos in the Senate) enter into a deal with dems that will permanently make them an underclass in votes,tank the economy,increase unemployment, decrease wages, and go against the wishes of their electorate? Just to name a few of the many problems with the amnesty bill. Is there any other answer other than political corruption, our elected reps taking money or other goodies?

I agree that it is most likely corruption. Our political/corporate elites have lost touch with the rest of us. They are post-American when it comes to their world view. And there appears to be no political price to pay.

The federal government controls 25% of our GDP and state, county, and local government another 20% or so. Crony capitalism has become predominant. There is a symbiotic relationship between the government and the corporate world--similar to what Ike warned us about re the military industrial complex.

Government can make or break an industry thru regulations and laws. In turn, corporations can influence those regulations and laws via political contributions. And the entrenched government bureaucracy thru public unions can make or break their political masters who are transient. It is no coincidence that the DC metro area is the richest in the nation and virtually unaffected by recessions and economic downturns.

In addition to money, the attraction to power and control motivates many of these politicians who think that the people work for them and not the other way around. Many probably detest the American public whom they view as just pawns and rubes who can be easily fooled and led. Until we start holding them accountable, I see little that will change their behavior. Obamacare was shoved down our throats and now they are using the same model for amnesty. You won't know what is in the bill until it is passed.

Graham says if/when they pass this bill, they will NEVER need to address 'illegal immigration' again.

I call BS. deja vu.

Grahamesty is sounding exactly like Ted Swimmer in 1986.

1986: Amnesty In the campaign for the 1986 amnesty law, Kennedy predicted that the law would grant citizenship to no more than 1.3 million people. “We will secure the borders henceforth. We will never again bring forward another amnesty bill like this,” he said.

I suppose the open border crowd would respond by saying "Well this bill is not like that one." IT IS WORSE AND WILL GUARANTEE AZTLAN SUCESS.

Personally I really liked Paula Deen and her show until I learned that she campaigned for the Dear leader and the big mooch. After that I couldn't care less about her fate.

Truth is however,she played it all wrong.

She employed the Trent Lott defense of cry babying/multiple apologies which just empower all the wrong commies. She basically appealed to the DBM to save her grits(with plenty of butter).

The result? The drivebys smelled blood in the water and they ate her in one quick bite.

If she had gone on the offensive and kicked some ass for wrongly being portrayed as a racist she would still be on the air.

The hard left responds to weakness as do vampires and sharks which they are closely related to.

It is amazing how they re-use the same ole song-and-dance acts, speeches, teary-eyed stories, shell games.

They are using the same rhetoric from the Bush2 era and the 3 attempts to pass comprehensive immigration then.

Secure the border, learn English, pay a fine, go to the end of the line, yada yada yada.

The only things that change are the new regulations buried deep within the document and/or its amendments.

I don't think people understand that the Corker-Hoeven "amendment" is 1190 pages long.

If you haven't read the Corker-Hoeven amendment to the Senate immigration bill, you aren't alone. Congress hasn't read it either. The Gang of Eight and the cosponsors of Corker-Hoeven spent the last couple of days boasting about the amendment, and making promises about what it would do, then Majority Leader Reid sent the Senate home with a 1,000-plus-page reading assignment for the weekend. The text of the amendment wasn't released until Friday afternoon. The Senate votes on Monday. Additional handwritten changes to the amendment have yet to be distributed to every Senator.

This is Senator Schumer's version of "transparency."

I wonder how long it took to write this "amendment." I think we are being played for suckers. Both parties had this drafted and held it for the opportune time to give political cover for more Reps to vote for the bill. First, they had to go thru the contrived theatrics of condemning the bill because it did not do enough for border security and the voila, at the last minute, they come with a "fix" to make the bill sound.

Exactly you don't draft a 1,000 page documents that will be put into U.S. law overnight. Just does not happen. And all the rumors about our guys in dem war rooms aiding in writing law, that is just way over the pale.

We need to do a better job of vetting these clowns and be very careful who we support and who we don't from now on. These clowns need to learn that we can just as easily break them as make them.

Exactly Tom!

I had a buddy that went fishing in the Gulf of Mexico last Wednesday. He started catching permit.A sought after game fish here. Meanwhile, 300 lb. bull sharks started eating them before he got them to the boat

. Even the ones he released were eaten.

Finally, he had to stop fishing for them or watch them all get eaten.

Moral of the story, once blood is in the water the sharks are never satisfied.

WSJ’s Saturday headline tossed cold water on the immigration bill's passage.

One can only hope. Before I totally give up on Congress, I guess it's time to make another push tomorrow and bug some senators. I am weary of how they are working against Americans' interest anymore.

Some really great stuff here making it all look a little bit more clear. Its a takeover from within to make us more docile so we can be easier to rule.
That’s why even our side is for it they all want power to rule over us.

......Reps like Graham are willing to do the bidding of their corporate masters even if it means destroying the country.

When you have the Koch brothers, Murdoch, the American Chamber of Commerce, et. al., joining forces with the labor unions, La Raza, Soros, Obama, Schumer, and Durbin, it is obvious that our political and corporate elites have reached a consensus on what is best for us.


Absolutely spot on, kabar. The people will be the ones who suffer. WE will pay for their gain.

What particular special interest has a particularly special interest about keeping the border open?

What particular special interest has particularly large sums of money to spread around?

What particular special interest will stop at nothing to achieve their aims?

If you answered "drug cartels", you share my suspicions.

rodguy911, there is another obvious answer to your question. It will cripple the Conservative ideology through dilution, something both political parties want. An already big government will grow even bigger and more powerful, with nothing to stand in it's way, or so the pro-amnesty crowd thinks.

When looking at the likely actual numbers involved here (versus the artificially low numbers being used by the proponents), if implemented, odds increase we could witness our government collapse under it's own weight.

Amazing what a difference a president makes when it comes to whether the person is a traitor or a whistleblower. In that last link, I find it ironic that Lindsey Graham of all people wanted to look into what Bush was doing. This time around he thinks it is just fine what Obama is doing. Graham needs to go.

Obama has the goods on Graham. Graham must go along or his gravy train is history (maybe even his life). McCain too.

As revealed, the NSA is spying on individuals, judges, congress, etc., and the “good stuff” against his enemies (and “friends”) goes straight to Obama. Stalin only wished he had these kinds of tools.

I agree. The Left and their RAT party certainly are loud and proud about what they stand for - party of death, and abortion is their sacrament. ( Abortion is “Sacred Ground” ). Along with everything perverse starting with all gay ideologies. If it has to do with SEX they will stand by it and offer their full support even if it is detrimental to the moral well being of a nation and it's youth ( FDA Approves Sale of Plan B Morning After Pill to Teenagers , at the same time teenagers cannot even have an aspirin in school.)

True enough, but then shark steak tastes like shark steak (not sure what kind of shark it is) and in Florida, shark-fin is often passed of as scallops.

In terms of increasing the guest worker programs, absolutely yes. The American Chamber of Commerce, Rupert Murdoch, the Koch brothers, Mark Zukerberg, Bill Gates, and others have spent millions to get this bill passed.

What particular special interest has a particularly special interest about keeping the border open?

The border is a different issue. There is no doubt that the amount of money involved in the drug trade is a corrupting factor. How far it extends and who is involved is another matter.

Mexico is also our third largest trading partner. There is a huge amount of daily traffic across the border. Millions of Mexicans hold border crossing cards(BCC). They go shopping in US border towns. There are economic reasons why many want the border to be as open as possible.
