Goodlatte Tells Hollywood: Immigration 'Grand Bargain' Coming(sell out)
Big Governement ^ | 5/2/14 | Mathew Boyle

Posted on 05/04/2014 5:59:13 AM PDT by amnestynone

House Judiciary Committee chairman Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) said Friday at Hollywood’s “Creativity Conference” in Washington that there is a “grand bargain” in the works on amnesty. ABC News’s Rick Klein Tweeted that Goodlatte told ABC reporter Jon Karl at the event that he is “still searching for ‘grand bargain’ on status of undocumented immigrants,” and that Goodlatte does “believe it will happen.” Klein noted the comments came at the second annual “Creativity Conference,” an event hosted by the Motion Picture Association of America. The MPAA, which is run by former Sen. Chris Dodd (D-CT), is hosting the event alongside Microsoft at the Newseum in Washington, D.C. Microsoft has lobbied for amnesty, and endorsed the Senate’s “Gang of Eight” immigration bill last year. Its headquarters is in the district of House GOP conference chairwoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers, who recently suggested there is a plan to bring immigration bills to the floor by August that would provide “legal status” to millions of illegal aliens. Goodlatte’s role on immigration is crucial. His committee has jurisdiction over the matter. Goodlatte, however, would not predict during the interview when such amnesty legislation would pass. "My job isn’t to predict when it’s going to happen. My job is to build the consensus that we need to have immigration reform,” Goodlatte said. Sen. David Vitter (R-LA), an opponent of amnesty aligned with Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL), Tweeted in response to Goodlatte that he was cutting a deal with President Obama and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. "A 'grand bargain' w/ Reid & WH = amnesty," Vitter Tweeted.

Amnesty will achieve only two ends:

1. It will further erode respect for law at a time when that respect is already at rock-bottom; and,

2. It will insure that the nation’s Republicans never again win an election.

And that’s all she wrote.

Oh, its going to happen all right. - Right after these midterm elections.
The GOP wants this issue behind us, moving on, as it were.
What they completely fail to understand is that it will NEVER be behind us.
The next step will be some type of “grand bargain” for reparations, both black and Hispanic, that the white American population will be targeted to bear for our endless crimes against them.
And they will have the votes to do it, once we hand them the rope to hang us with...

We can have no '50-50' allegiance in this country. Either a man is an American and nothing else, or he is not an American at all.

“Amnesty will achieve only two ends:”

It will receive another end. Tax benefits for country clubbers who sold the country to get this from the Dems to arrange this. The day the amnety bill passed the senate supporters Hatch and Baucus announced something called “bipartisan corporate income tax reform”. My guess out GOP Couuntry club wing will get this passed the minute this clears the congress. you watch. Here we have a harsh left wing administration heading up a harsh left wing party and all our business “leaders” can think of is using thier goal of taking over the country to get more tax cuts and loopholes along with cheap labor. These people need to be taken out and they need to pay more taxes for this constant selling out.

I have a counter-idea.

Let us assume that the RINOs *DO* grant amnesty to millions of illegals.

We should find a way to instruct them what it is to be an American. For example, we should start the process of educating them on the Second Amendment.

Can't trust Obama or the Democrats. Regardless what is passed “The Pen and the phone” will modify it to what the Democrats want all along. Immediate full citizenship with all rights and privileges for all illegals. Open borders. We shall call this “Amnesty+”.

In the United States we have Asian-Americans, African-Americans, European-Americans ,South American-Americans, Australian-Americans which covers the populated continents. Then to narrow things down a bit, we have Mexican-Americans, Cuban-Americans, Arab-Americans, Italian- Americans, French-Americans, British-Americans (for God’s sake), Russia-Americans, Japanese-Americans, Jewish-Americans and on and on. There really is a place in this formerly great nation for everyone.

Well, everyone except Americans.

The “deal” appears to be in and fixed for and by republicans with democrats. It’s just a matter of springing it upon us now. It is proof positive RINO republicans are democrats in republican clothing. As long as there are no shanty towns in their neighborhoods and donor dollars fill their billfolds, these so-called republicans have no loyalty, ethics, patriotism or morality. They should be investigated and imprisoned for dereliction of duty to the Constitutional Oath they swore to uphold. They are part and parcel of Obama’s lawlessness.

This can only be solved with prompt, extra-legal action.
We either break some RINO heads NOW—or lose the country and our liberty FOREVER.
Ya probably cannot get to the leaders, but their staff weenies are another matter entirely.
Waiting for the vote, and writing letters, e-mail, etc. are just wasting time.
Break windows, break heads, wreck offices or lose liberty FOREVER.

Your choice.

There is no such thing as a ‘Republican’ any more.

Any “pathway to citizenship” other than the one already defined by the laws previously created by the people’s representatives should be met by an immediate general strike across the entire country. In a sane world that is.

Walk in citizenship centers at the border. One stop shopping for citizenship, sign up for social services, EBT, medicade, Federal drivers license and Democrat voter registration. Si Habla Espanol.

The question that at least one voter in every town-hall should ask these RINO traitors is if they truly believe Amnesty represents the will of the majority of American citizens and voters? (It would be nice if anyone in the Mainstream Media would ask this, but I’m not holding my breath on that one.)

As a follow up question it might be worth inquiring about the concept of governing by the consent of the governed that seemed so dear to this nation’s founders.

Blue collar and middle-class taxpayers should refuse to file federal taxes and should disregard all federal laws.

Sympathy for the Devil was the accompanying music that emerged as I was reading the article.

Yes indeed, demonic. Then again, what isn't coming out of DemonCentral?

Nope that would not be effective. What would be effective, and entirely legal, would be the day they pass this law every working American go into their payroll department and up their exemption to 20. Let they pay for all that free stuff without OUR money.
