The House’s Foolhardy Principles
National Review ^ | 1/30/14 | Mark Krikorian

Posted on 01/31/2014 8:41:48 AM PST by jimbo123

The Republican “Standards for Immigration Reform,” released today by the party at its congressional retreat, are pretty much what we’d been led to expect. They call for more enforcement, increasing legal immigration but orienting it away from family ties, and amnesty.

They’re really not that different from the Senate Gang of Eight’s original “Bipartisan Framework for Immigration Reform.” And look how that turned out.

This document was prepared by Becky Tallent, Gang of Eight member John McCain’s former chief of staff and manager of his earlier amnesty push with Ted Kennedy. John Boehner recently hired her as an immigration liaison, and her career-long commitment to pushing amnesty and increased immigration must inform the interpretation of any ambiguous language. If it looks like a weasel word, it probably is.

With or without that context, Boehner’s standards present cause for concern:

The serious problems in our immigration system must be solved, and we are committed to working in a bipartisan manner to solve them. That would be pabulum except that the Gang of Eight also made a big deal of how bipartisan they were. Bipartisanship isn’t any good if it means Democratic amnesty supporters teaming up with Republican amnesty supporters to screw the public.

If your House representative is Republican, call his or her office and let the rep. know you are against this reprise of the gang of 8 amnesty bill. Yes, call even if the rep. is a snarky RINO as a volume of calls may make the weasel quake.

We did not want Obamacare, and you Neo-Democrat RINOs gave it to us anyway, and we are the worse for it.

We DO want y’all to enforce existing Federal Border Laws.

WE DO NOT WANT IMMIGRATION REFORM ! Y’all gave us that in 1986, and we are the worse for it!

Now y’all say that “we need to cave in this year to Obama on Immigration Reform.” Why this perversion to betray us!?

This is the same GEE OH PEE pablum that you Neo-Democrat RINOs have been always been feeding to the gullible, low information voters.

McCain, McConnell, Cornyn, Boehner, Cantor, and Ryan are always “waiting for massive support from the Public” before they even consider doing a pitched battle with the enemy.

The “enemy” is y’a’ll caving in to Obama! Just enforce existing Border Laws!

Y’all go on TV to publicly beat y’alls chests, and then “reach across the aisle to y’alls good friends in order to get something done.”

You Neo-Democrat RINOs will never lead, will always wait for a groundswell of Public discontent before risking incurring the wrath of their most dreaded enemy: The Leftstream Media.

Note to all the Congressional RINO leaders: We gave y’all in 2010 what y’all said y’all were waiting for - - - - The Massive TEA Party Rebellion, and y’all fought us every step of the way, and are fighting us now more than ever!

We gave y’all the support that y’all asked for and y’all betrayed us!

Betray us once, shame on you. Betray us twice, shame on us!

LEAD, OR GET OUT OF OUR WAY !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

BTW, we have long memories, and just so y’all know, RINO SEASON IS NOW OPEN AND THERE ARE NO BAG LIMITS !

Oh YES, Mr. Obama, since the country isn't going down the crapper fast enough, let us help you add 11 to 20 MILLION new DemonRAT voters to the rolls. Thank you, sir, may we have another?

The GOP is guarenteeing that a third party will come about as conservatives will not stand for this.

Libs win as the result.

Thank you John Boehner.
