I've seen people, individual people, be suicidal before.

I've never seen it in a political party, and a nation, before.

Live long enough, you see it all.

And people still believe the republican party is alive? I don’t get this.

They betrayed us with Obamacare.

I used to think Eric Cantor was a decent American. He’s turned into a disgusting pig who is betraying his country for campaign contributions, power and other considerations.

And of course he falsely claims to be a conservative.

What’s to “consider”? We’re either going to destroy America by importing 50 million foreign freeloaders or we aren’t going to. If we do, I don’t want to hear the commie ‘RATS whining about “poverty” and people without “healthcare” anymore. The ‘RATS are the morons causing the problems here in America.

Total idiots.

The ObamaCare fiasco is front and center in everyone’s minds and these fools are going to talk about immigration.

This garbage can take the back burner. ObamaCare needs to be looked at and nullified, delayed, etc.

Romney was well and truly the end of the two party system. If you really look at him he is Obama, politically speaking. Sure he wrapped his rhetoric up in something different: business (actually crony capitalism) instead of change (actually revolution)... but they are both very much socialists and statists. Both are proponents of abortion, socialized medicine, homosexual marriage and judicial activism.

Is there a strategic or electoral reason to move some immigration legislation forward? Repairing our broken legal immigration system might be one. Another is building a fence for border security and moving to defund ‘sanctuary’ cities.

The one that all true Conservatives should run to from the GOP.

Yeah ...the one that doesn't exist. There are other parties but that will just splinter the vote like Gingrich and Santorum did. Myself - I am focusing on other things besides politics. Screw all these people.

If the house passes any bill at all, the senate will gut it, fill it with its own crap, then pass it, and Obama will sign it.

The GOP is playing us for fools. They are our enemy.

Until we recognize the lot of them as enemies, we have no chance in hell to preserve what liberties we have left.

True, but DC cannot be reformed from within, and the US military, the only institution available to protect our liberties from attack by the political class, is under siege and is being eviscerated on a daily basis.

They’re not scared and they’re not stupid.

They are reacting to $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$.

Find out where the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, particularly, is chucking its bribes this month. They’ve spent over $200 million on the congresscritters responsible for amnesty legislation.

Open Secrets will probably have the information, unless there’s an anonymous superpac laundering bribes (now legally, after the Citizen’s United verdict).

It’s actually worse than that.

Anyone hoping that our military can come swooping in to save us from tyranny being pushed upon us by the MarxoFascists, has no understanding of what has already been put in place to prevent that very thing here on these shores BY the Executive.

I won’t give any details, except to ask you all to ponder - how is it that on a U.S. military base, NONE of the personnel at Ft. Hood was armed (aside from MPs) to stop Hassan’s jihad attack??

Look into that question and you will discover why it is that any hope of our military saving us from tyranny is less than zero.

You Don’t understand the process. Any immigration bill the house passes goes to conference where the senate replaces it with their version and we are SCREWED!

That might happen. I think it would be unlikely that the House members in the conference would add a path-to-citizenship to an "enforcement only" House bill, but what the House seems to be producing is its own Comprehensive Immigration Whopper bill (a bigger bill made out of smaller pieces), even before the bicameral conference.

Yes, I believe "conference" is the correct term. "Reconciliation" is for budget bills only.

“CANTOR: HOUSE “MIGHT” CONSIDER IMMIGRATION REFORM”

This sorry son of a what-not better not consider any “immigration” (translation: AMNESTY) “reform”.

No bill, period.

Just a demand in the form of a House resolution that Zero start enforcing the laws already on the books. We can then consider any additional steps in a few years after seeing how that goes.

Boy I have been keeping my powder dry on this one...

Cannot a POTUS command troops for 90 days without Congresses Approval and not needing a declaration of war or an authorization of force?

Ok if so declare our Southern Border a war zone, make it a no fly over, evacuate it from any civilians for quite some distance, have the Coast Guard patrol it and hire the Israeli's with a boat load of crews to build the same wall they use against their internal neighbors, and get all 1900+ miles done in 90 days....

I could see a women of steel I can think of do this, not Comrade Oboingo...

Eric Cantor is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations. He has attended Bilderburg meetings.

At one time I believed this wasn’t important, that it was just happenstance but have observed the trend where so-called Conservatives vote as Progressives and they all belong to the CFR. I no longer ignore that fact. It is why I mention it here.
