Schumer: Immigration Reform Stalled by Tea Party Racism
breitbart.com ^ | 1/23/14

Posted on 01/24/2014 7:00:45 AM PST by cotton1706

On Thursday, speaking at the John Podesta-founded Center for American Progress, Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said that if it were not for the Tea Party, immigration reform would have passed long ago. He blamed Tea Party opposition to immigration reform on racism. "In a pre-tea party world, the Senate immigration bill would have been welcomed by House Republicans," Schumer stated. "However, the tea party rank and file know it's a different America. It looks different; it prays different; it works different. This is unsettling and angering to some."

Schumer added that discomfort with demographic change – racism – explained “why so many on the right vehemently opposed the Senate immigration bill, a bill that actually embodies many conservative, non-governmental principals: reducing our deficit by billions, growing our economy, creating jobs and spurring new entrepreneurial activity.”

Republicans in the House have not pushed forward the Senate’s immigration bill, arguing that it does little to secure the border while essentially granting amnesty to the 12 million illegal immigrants living within the United States.

Its racist to expect our constitution to be followed by our government.

Schumer needs to be attacked and ridiculed personally and repeatedly if this is the way he wants to play.

And that's why I'm Tea Party.

Schumer is a disgusting POS, a scum-sucking bottom feeding turd floating in the punch bowl of political discourse. And I’m being generous.

What an ignorant man!

There is no reason to permit ANY immigration when you’ve got more unemployed sitting without work than anytime since the Great Depression.

The middle class knows the truth: illegal immigration steals jobs and drives down wages. Amnesty for illegal immigrants only changes who collects welfare. Those illegals will be replaced by new illegals.

The old will willingly take minimum wage jobs with social welfare benefits, and the new will take the under-the-table wages that drive down wages in the rest of the market.

That Liberal idiot only sings one note....

It’s time for Liberals to take their heads out of their a%$es and deal rationally with the problems facing America right now.

It’s time for them to STOP reverting to type with such pathetically lame, predictable and dated arguments.

It is NOT 1960, and to go on ‘doing politics’ AS IF it IS, is to say that the US has been virtually stagnant ...and politically/economically/socially unchanged for decades.

A cursory look around will tell even a politically jejune moron that this is not the case.

NO one but a whining, intellectually dishonest Liberal would deny the obvious, and continue with the same old, groundless arguments.

MORE LIKE SCHUMER'S HOLDING IT UP W/ HIS SELF-SERVING SUCK-UP

BACKSTORY Ranking Judiciary member Sen Schumer refused to amend amnesty to protect Americans----he summarily dismissed Sen Grassley's proposal (b/c the amendment would adversely affect his votes and donations from his Russian constituents?)

IS SCHUMER TALKING ABOUT HIS DISTRICT'S VOTERS AND DONORS? "When people are living in undocumented status, there are times, I suppose, when they've made up identities, made up Social Security numbers," Schumer told his Judiciary Committee colleagues. "How are they going to remember all that, and are we going to delay RPI status? "(The) purpose of this bill is to bring people out of the shadows. We all know when they lived in the shadows, they had to forge documents, forge Social Security numbers, et cetera. I just don't see how, when you've lived here 10 years, and you've had many different identities, many different numbers, you're going to remember them all," said Schumer.

==========================================

The Senate Judiciary committee defeated Grassley's amendment 8 to 10 on a lock-stepping straight Dem party-line vote.

=====================================================

These are Schumer's constituents.

Dozens of Russian Diplomats Charged With Defrauding Medicaid----The diplos pulled this off smoothly for decades. They may have had official help----for a price. L/E needs to determine if Sen Schumer benefited from this fraud----and determine the ways he may have facilitated fraud.

Are Schumer's constituents hiding large amounts of assets from the courts adjudicating the welfare cases?

<>>< Did Schumer use tax-paid offices to help facilitate felonies?

<><> Were tax dollars allocated to Schumer's constituents, collected under several identities?

<><> Were hefty bundles of tax dollars wired offshore?

<><> Many of the diplos skipped town when the heat was on. Did they stiff US banks for fraudulent sub-prime mtges (which we taxpayers have to bailout).

How many ways are Schumer's constituents riding the US gravy train---this would be very easy to find out. Are they receiving:

UI, SSI, Workmen's Comp,

TANF (temporary assistance to needy families),

WICS (food assistance),

subsidized Section 8 shelter,

ObamaPhone subsidies,

Utility Assistance subsidies,

$5000 a year EITC checks per identity,

hefty monthly "asylum" checks from SS ....

==================================================

<><> Did any of these diplos give Schumer campaign contributions?

<><>Did they donate to Schumer using their own names ---or the names of others?

<><> Did any of these people illegally vote for Schumer?

<><> Did Schumer use his tax-paid Senate offices to aid abet felonies?

<><> Do any of these diplos receive EITC refunds?

<><> Did Chuckie use his govt offices and US govt resources to setup other freebies for these criminals?

<><> Did they receive welfare, food stamps, SSI, free medical care, Section 8 housing, UI, Workmen's comp under several identities?

<><> Did they falsify US govt documents to unlawfully receive, monthly SS checks, claiming "asylum?"

<><> Does he have a sub-prime mortgage obtainedby falsifying bank documents?

<><> Did they make false claims on IRS forms in order to get EITC refunds?

<><> Do they have a legal driver's license?

<><> Do they have valid passports?

<><> How many times did they wire-transfer money back to their homelan--where they apparently fled when the heat was on?

=================================================

SAMPLE LETTER TO LAW ENFORCEMENT
Taxpayers are urged to notify the FBI now.
FBI TIPS PAGE https://tips.fbi.gov

SUBJECT: Collusion, conspiracy, and bribery
IN RE: financial irregularities
REFERENCE: govt fraud, falsified documents, wire transfers, accounting fraud, etc.

NARRATIVE Taxpayers demand to know the scope and dimension of multiple conspiracies by government insiders to collude in sub rosa deals to personally profit. Could be prosecuted under the Bank Secrecy ACT, RICO, and the Hobbs Act.

OF INTEREST TO LAW ENFORCEMENT Based on Sen Schumer's stated approval of the use of stolen SS numbers and multiple identities to defraud, the FBI should interrogate individuals for evidence of multiple schemes to falsify documents to further insider schemes. The FBI should investigate any and all official documents submitted by Schumer's constituents.

Crimes might include---conspiracy. collusion, falsifying offical documents (a felony), money laundering, tax evasion, extorting taxpayers, theft of govt monies, misuse of public office and government positions.

Why don’t we ask Chuck Schumer if all these illegal aliens can come and live in his neighborhood. (high-security gated community)
Lets let all the ghetto inhabitants of his district come live with him side-by-side.
After all, if he is not racist, and he believes all this ‘equality’ horsecrap, he should not have a problem with that.
See how fast he tries to stop that.

I think Tea Party responses to "Uncle Chuck" ought to be along the following lines, whenever possible.

Like all modern Liberals, Uncle Chuck is opposed to individual liberty as defined in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. The only real issue he and his Utopian colleagues have with chattel slavery in America two hundred years ago is that the slaves were privately owned.

Uncle Chuck is typical of Democrat extremists who are orgasmic over the idea of slavery to the state.

Democrats never pass up on opportunity to tell us why enslavement by the state is for our own protection and our own safety, because life under the anarchy that conservatives want to impose is just too risky and dangerous. We can't have any of that inhumane "on-your-own economics" that conservatives advocate.

Thereby proving that you no longer have to be black to be an Uncle Tom (or an Uncle Chuck).

"It looks different; it prays different; it works different. This is unsettling and angering to some."

Why is it bad to be unsettled and angered by this? Especially when its been forced upon us ILLEGALLY.

Why is Chuck Schumer so interested is making White Christians a minority in this country?

Schumer has just proven himself to be an idiot, or perhaps crazy.

Either he has an IQ in the single digits or he needs the men in the white coats to throw a butterfly net over him.

Schumer offers Democrats a strategy to defeat tea party
Thursday, January 23, 2014 7:56:13 PM · 19 of 21
mosesdapoet to mdittmar; All
There is no such thing as “The TEA party”. T.E.A. is an acronym meaning “Taxed Enough Already” and is an independent political movement composed of hundreds of various loosely organized groups throughout the country dedicated to lower taxes and smaller non intrusive government.

The socialist/communists which control the democrat in name only party and their cohorts in the print and visual media working in bi-partisanship with opponents in the Republican party known as RINOS (republicans in name only) all have sucessfully demonized this movement.

They began by associating the initials composing the acronym T.E.A. with the beverage, the Boston tea party, a sexual activity, or drug some call tea. Political enemys. because those belonging to the T.E.A. movement are against government waste,corruption, and expansion .

It’s time to remind their TEA supporters within talk radio to remind their listeners that the title is an acronym and what it stands for. Including guys like Schumer

Actually, immigration reform is dead because of the Rat's class, gender, & race war.

As a white man being redistributed into poverty & destined for an early death via Obamacare, amnesty is not in my best interest. I don't owe illegal alien invaders a damn thing, so I reject any amnesty completely.

I favor shipping EVERY illegal alien back to where they came from, & I don't care how old they are or how long they have been in this country illegally.
