Skip to comments.The pro-amnesty RINO Traitor List (Graham, Hatch, Alexander, Rubio, Wicker...)
Posted on 01/22/2014 10:38:43 AM PST by Javeth
Many of us here have posted on this before, but like Cato warning against the persisting menace of ancient Carthage to Rome, it's important to keep this current threat constantly in mind, and act to protect our party and our movement. This is the threat of the worst of the traitorous RINOs especially in the Senate-- the ones who come from solidly Red States with no excuse for betraying the conservative movement, but who did so anyway and on the issue of mass immigration and amnesty, the most important of all.
While there are many litmus tests to identify a RINO, the single most reliable one is whether a representative voted for that atrocious immigration reform mass amnesty bill (full name: Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act) in the Senate in June 2013. That bill betrayed virtually every principle of the conservative movement-- spitting on the rule of law (with big juicy rewards for lawbreakers), disrespecting the US Constitution, putting foreigners and corrupt foreign interests (like that H1b bribery visa) before the interests of Americans, making big government even bigger (the 20 million+ amnestied illegals would be put on Obamacare and state benefits), selling out patriotic Americans for the sake of cheap labor, overburdening our communities and crippling state and local rights in favor of federal power, while permanently tipping the Electoral College in favor of socialist Democrats. The betrayal is especially blatant by the Republican members of the so-called Gang of Eight-- Lindsey Graham, Marco Rubio, Jeff Flake and John McCain-- and other major enablers like Orrin Hatch and Lamar Alexander, even more so since they claim to "represent" among the most solidly Red States in the Union. GOP Senators in supposedly more purple-ish states like Kelly Ayotte in New Hampshire, Susan Collins in Maine and Mark Kirk in Illinois have no excuse either-- just about everybody in New Hampshire, not only conservatives but also Independent and Democratic voters (including Latinos and other minorities, who also rejected John McCain in 2008 despite his pro-amnesty bleating), hated the repulsive anti-American, anti-Constitution immigration reform bill. (The latest Gallup Poll shows less than 5% of Americans even want to pursue it any form-- obviously more important priorities.) But Senators in solid Red States like Graham, Hatch, Alexander, Wicker, Murkowski and both McCain and Flake have committed a heinous and inexcusable betrayal against the conservative movement, and they must pay a steep price for it, in the form of a humiliating end to their political careers as they're defeated by true conservatives. Full roll call list of these traitorous RINOs is here:
Many of these pro-amnesty RINO traitors aren't up for reelection until 2016 or (as for Orrin Hatch in Utah and Roger Wicker in Mississippi) 2018, and in an especially pathetic fashion, they proceeded with their betrayal of the grass-roots in the hopes that we wouldn't remember the details with their primaries and general elections so far out. Thus all the more important that we make it clear that we will never forget and never forgive this betrayal, that they can't sneak such a bill by us and that we're watching every move they make on this issue, even if they try passing it through some sneaky parliamentary procedure, lame-duck session, overhyped "enforcement provisions" to let through the amnesty (we're onto that deception from the 1986 amnesty), disguised committee or other method. And that even Senators not up for reelection until 2018 have doomed their political careers by a betrayal that won't be forgotten. (This applies equally to any House Republicans like Paul Ryan, John Boehner, Eric Cantor, Ileana Ros-Lehtinen and anyone else in that chamber-- if they even think about bringing an immigration bill up for a vote or letting it through the House, they'll be dooming their political careers, too, and they'll be hounded even after they're kicked out of office to the point of being politically toxic, so no sweetheart high-paying lobbyist gigs afterward, either.) With America still suffering high real unemployment and economic stagnation in the Obama Depression, they've betrayed not only the conservative movement but the whole country, too. Selling the conservative cause down the river in favor of getting into bed with the crooked Chamber of Commerce, Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, Marissa Meyer, Carly Fiorina and other pro-amnesty and H1b crony capitalists, whove made their business dependent on sweetheart policies courtesy of big government (as opposed to the real capitalists who run small businesses and tailor their efforts to meet the needs of the free market and their communities).
So that we know specifically who to focus on defeating in each election year, here's the full list of these pro-amnesty RINO traitors and the years that they're up for primaries and reelection:
2014: Lindsey Graham (SC), Susan Collins (ME), Lamar Alexander (TN)
2016: Marco Rubio (FL), John McCain (AZ), Kelly Ayotte (NH), Mark Kirk (IL), Lisa Murkowski (AK), John Hoeven (ND)
2018: Orrin Hatch (UT), Bob Corker (TN), Jeff Flake (AZ), Dean Heller (NV), Roger Wicker (MS)
I'd add John Cornyn of Texas to this list, even though he did eventually vote against the immigration reform bill, as Senate Minority Whip it was his job to keep traitorous Senators like Graham, Hatch, Rubio, McCain, Corker, Flake and Wicker in line to vote with the Republican Senate majority against the bill, which he totally failed to do.
Don't worry about any bleatings and whinings from the GOP establishment about "dividing the vote" when we primary these traitors and work to replace them with genuine conservatives, since most of them come from such solidly Red States, the Republican nominee will be the one to represent the state. So the Senator is in effect chosen at the primary level, making it all the more important to start early and unceasingly in bringing down traitors like Graham, Hatch, Rubio, McCain, Murkowski, Corker, Alexander, Flake and Wicker, all of whom are serving as soclalist Trojan Horses within the GOP in states that the Democrats could never capture themselves. By making these RINO traitors politically unviable early on-- with rallies, letters to the editor, posters, billboards, forceful town meetings, every way we can get the word out-- we'll help to make it clear to the GOP establishment that the grass-roots will not forgive such betrayals on the amnesty and immigration issue, and the folks in the back rooms will be forced to find and unite behind a conservative replacement that much earlier. They'll be moved, in fact, to provide backing for true conservatives (such as Lee Bright in South Carolina) that we in the rank and file unite our support around and propel to victory, as we did for Ted Cruz in Texas and will continue to do throughout every state in this great country that we are determined to stand up for.
Thank you for including both illegal alien enablers Alexander and Corker of TN...
Over the years through the many versions of the AMNESTY Bill, they gave us a hard time when we called their office or asked them personally to vote against the current AMNESTY Bill..
(and remember all of the Great One’s surges ???)
Lots of screams and spitting rebuke from them at those times..
They made no secret of their love of the illegal aliens and their hatred for the American citizens they are suppose to “represent”..
ANY House bill will be gutted, all new text substituted by the Senate, and passed by the House to see what’s in it... just as with Obamacare
There’s a lot of support for illegals in SC, based on voting patterns.
Its a much quicker to just list the Republicans who are going to vote no on amnesty.
We will take care of wicker the butt licker in 2018... thad will go in 16.
I didn’t even have to look to know TurdKowski would be in favor of it. She will get re-elected because there are enough retarded republicants in this state to think she actually is a republicant, and the Rats will vote for her over their own candidate. It’s how she won her seat, and she will do it again.

Unfortunately, like many of the major debates in Washington, immigration has become a stalemate-where both sides are imprisoned by their own rhetoric or attachment to sacred cows that prevent the possibility of a balanced solution.
Immigration Reform will not occur until Conservative Republicans, like myself, become part of the solution. I am here today to begin that conversation.
Let's start that conversation by acknowledging we aren't going to deport 12 million illegal immigrants.
If you wish to work, if you wish to live and work in America, then we will find a place for you...
This is where prudence, compassion and thrift all point us toward the same goal: bringing these workers out of the shadows and into being taxpaying members of society.
Imagine 12 million people who are already here coming out of the shadows to become new taxpayers.12 million more people assimilating into society. 12 million more people being productive contributors.
Latinos, should be a natural constituency for the party, Paul argued, but "Republicans have pushed them away with harsh rhetoric over immigration." ...he would create a bipartisan panel to determine how many visas should be granted for workers already in the United States and those who might follow...

Rubio is in trouble since he only got 47% or 48% against Crist and a Dem. His supporters have moved against amnesty and unlimited war.
If Alexander survives the primary but passes away early in his term we’ll have to make sure we vet his replacement.
Marsha Blackburn has no clue on amnesty. She told Laura Ingraham the house should start passing bills. I think there may be another Congressman from TN who doesn’t know what he’s talking about.
Lankford and Cole looking to replace Coburn flip flop on amnesty.
Cornyn supports mass immigration and tried to help Rubio. Agreed with Paul or Rubio on Republicans being the party of massive legal immigration.
