Now we know why Christie didn’t appoint the declared conservative.

NEVER contribute to the democrips. Send your money to the Constitutional Party, maybe, but never to the democrips.
Ridiculous that is!

Chiesa (the appointee) does what his boss (the appointer) tells him to do. If you don’t like what Chiesa does or how he votes, let Christie know because it’s as if Christie himself is voting. ...and remember that political revenge is a dish best served cold.

“The Republican Party has left me. I will no longer vote for Republicans because they are Republicans. I will vote for third party conservatives when the opportunity presents itself.

The GOP establishment in Washington D.C. is already on the road to hell and knows the way, so I don’t have to tell them where to go.”

YES!!! We need to let these republicans know that we will NOT be voting them back into office. We WILL go 3rd party from now on. Voting the “lesser of two evils” doesn’t work anymore. We may as well just vote democrat as vote for these clowns. They NO longer represent us. They no longer deserve public ‘service’.

.
Don’t be so sure that republicans are just idiots — I am convinced that many of them are evil and anti-American.

That’s why I no longer contribute to the GOP.

Scew them.

No, Lamar Alexander is coming up for re-election next year, as well. He deserves to get throttled.

I must say that I was disapppointed we ended up with Corker in Tennessee, as well, when we had men like Ron Ramsey running.

I would bet that a meeting was held before the vote to decide in many cases who would vote yes and who would vote no based on who is up for re-election in 2014.

Cornyn is one of those. Given the choice he would have voted yes but because he has to run in 2014, someone who isn’t up for election until 2016 voted yes to ensure passage and Cornyn could vote no. Three years from now, how many people will remember who voted yes and who voted no? Maybe we here on FR but certainly not a majority of people.

You got that right. Even though Cornyn voted no on this he still needs to be primary challenged in 2014. It was reported that he worked behind the scenes with Mitch McConnell to give Republicans cover to vote yes on this.

Alexander arrived late to cast the 68th vote for Schumer. They already had well over 60 votes. Was he trying to rub it in, or just making sure he got his reward?

The bill is a gigantic bait-and-switch. The border agents don’t need to be in place until 2021, and Big Sis (or any other DHS head) can waive the fence requirement at any time for any reason.

It’s a sell-out of America. Get ready for millions of additional immigrants, the family members of the newly legalized already here.

They’ll be jumping for joy in the White House, as the destruction of America takes a big step forward.

if Mccain said no then at least 5 others would have said no, they are sheep to McCain and Graham and those two have to go.

Once those two go then the usual suspects will be left out by themselves and the country boys will have no where but back to the base

Wish I had time to figure out who was given cover that will be up for re-election in 2014. Remember Botox Nancy did this to some of her lap dogs several years ago. Too bad McConnell doesn’t pull any shenanigans that would benefit those of us who are Conservative.

Michael Berry had a great program on today. He didn’t get to spend much time talking about the amnesty but did praise Cruz and Sessions and asked everyone to thank them for their hard work. Nary a peep about Cornyn. At least one Conservative radio broadcaster can see through the smoke and mirrors.

Because in an election or two, regardless of whether Amnesty passes or not, nobody will be elected in Arizona without the Hispanic vote. Flake can count.

Once amnesty passes, they will quickly get the right to vote, and nobody will be elected in Arizona who is NOT Hispanic.

once NM AZ get their Hispanics into power , they will then bring in more Mexicans who in turn will vote to leave the union and join Mexico and pass laws which does nto reflect America, like Spanish first in the schools.

We will see whites moving out to TX and the break up of America starts and if that were the case then I’d rather see the north east leave first because without that area we would have a much better America

Mark Kirk was one of the 15 Senators who voted with the RATs to end debate.

Looks like I was vindicated when I said his earlier "conservative" vote not to bring immigration to a floor vote was either because A) He's recovering from a stroke and got confused, thinking he was voting YES to bring amnesty to the Senate floor, or B) He wants the bill sent back to the committee because it's not pro-illegal ENOUGH for his tastes.

Cornyn himself would be a good start, as well as McConnell. One disappointing report about McConnell's chances of being primary challenged is Rand Paul, his junior Senator colleague, just endorsed McConnell for 2014 and said he would not back a Tea Party challenge to McConnell. It would be disappointing if Ted Cruz were to do that for Cornyn here in Texas.

I have never thought a third party is needed. I believe a new Conservative party must be formed. With the Internet and an energized base, it should be easier to accomplish.

I can't stand the GOP any longer. They are traitors to our Constitution.

I want the GOP to die. I want the party destroyed and humiliated.

Rove, the Bushes, the arrogant elites in D.C. want above all to screw Conservatives -- they don't care that the Republic is destroyed as a result.

Conservatives need to acknowledge that the GOP is DEAD.

It would be disappointing if Ted Cruz were to do that for Cornyn here in Texas.”

This is surely going to be interesting. At the local Lincoln Day dinner all the Republican dignitaries showed up, were introduced and most were on the program, including many from Austin. Cornyn is the golden hair boy of most of this group - as was Kay Bailey. Notably absent at the dinner was Cruz. Quite frankly, I doubt if they invited him.

I think whether Cruz supports Cornyn or not is going to depend on whether Cornyn is primaried and, if so, by whom or whether Cornyn wins the primary and is running against a strong Democrat.

Could end up being like Sarah Palin not really endorsing Romney. Cruz appears to measure his words carefully and whether speaking from a prepared text or off the cuff always seems to come up with just the right words.

McConnell ought to just retire. Of course, if he does, I think Cornyn is the heir apparent for his leadership post. It’s his turn - don’t you know! Paul moves one step forward and two back. He’s just not dependable.

Portman has to be afraid of the grassroots out there and nothing else.

It has nothing to do with his heartfelt convictions.

At least he came out and said he now supports gay marriage so people know where he honestly stands on that.

I’m seriously beginning to wonder if Lindsay Graham is even going to run for re-election next year. By rabidly supporting full-fledged amnesty, I’m having a difficult time seeing how he can win in a deeply conservative state during an off-year election. Even if he can pull in all kinds of money from the RNC as a RINO establishment favorite, how is he not committing pure political suicide here???

There needs to be a double pronged strategy that runs real conservative candidates in GOP primaries and have third party candidates ready to go if the RINO wins the GOP primary.

That’s how they do it.

The leaders find out who can vote YES and who can vote NO and enough YES votes are recruited to pass the legislation.

In this case they wanted more than 2/3rd’s and they got 68 on board with 15 GOP votes.

The rest were given the opportunity to vote NO to save their political hides with the folks back home.

Watch Boehner do this to get the bill passed in the House later on......
