Tea Party Express Jumps Shark, Endorses Illegal Alien Amnesty
FrontPage Mag ^ | May 15, 2014 | Daniel Greenfield

Posted on 05/19/2014 6:13:40 AM PDT by SoConPubbie

My second biggest complaint about Republican amnesty supporters is how lazy they are.

Take Sal Russo’s big pro-amnesty article. It’s virtually identical to the same amnesty pitches coming in from the GOP over the years.

The only difference is that Russo throws in stuff about “misty-eyed ideals of some of the liberal do-gooder reformers” for cred while championing the exact same amnesty policy.  And he mentions “What is good for America should be the sole criteria for immigration reform.”

What’s good for America somehow involves permanent Democratic Party rule.

It’s six paragraphs of the same stuff about border security (under Obama) and our desperate need for Third World doctors and engineers.

It’s the same tired set of cliches. Stop me if you’ve heard any or all of these.

“The U.S. immigration system is flawed and broken”

“a rational visa policy”

“Border security must be an essential element of any immigration reform.”

These are pre-chewed talking points being vomited up all over again. They’re soulless and lifeless. And it gets worse once Russo makes his amnesty pitch.

Finally, we need to make the 11 million people who are here illegally obey the law, pay taxes and come out of the shadows. We have to get them right by the law in exchange for legal status, but not unbridled amnesty. This should include penalties, background checks to root out criminals, and the requirement that they learn English, understand the Constitution and be committed to our basic freedoms. We must ensure there is no special pathway to citizenship that puts them in front of people who waited in line.

Every dishonest phrase here has already been said by Rubio and co. Every point here has already been discredited. But that doesn’t stop Russo from using the same exact language that was worked out years ago by pollsters and consultants to sell the same rejected message.

At this point I would be more likely to trust an amnesty advocate if he would just admit that he was pitching amnesty, instead of the same old lines about going to the back of the line and no special pathway to citizenship.

Behind it all stands one man. Of course.

Norquist and his guests — Tea Party Express Co-Founder and Strategist Sal Russo, America Online Founder Steve Case and American Conservative Union Chairman Al Cardenas — strained to get the point across that the issue is not dead on Capitol Hill, and that House GOP leaders continue to plod along on a path to bring legislation to the floor.

All that this has really accomplished is to completely discredit Tea Party Express as an arm of the GOP establishment.

On Wednesday evening, Jenny Beth Martin, the co-founder of another leading tea party organization, Tea Party Patriots, released her own statement “clarifying” the group’s stance.

“We support legal immigration and the rule of law, according to the Constitution. There is already a legal path to citizenship for those wishing to come to the United States. Anyone who decides to get off that path and enter the United States illegally should not be given any sort of amnesty because doing so is neither fair nor equal treatment under the law.

“We must also demand the Obama administration enforce our current immigration laws. Those who are determined to have entered the country illegally and are on-track for deportation should be deported. Those who have been convicted of crimes and are serving sentences for their crimes should remain incarcerated until their sentences have been served.

“Conservatives are watching Congress like a hawk and will do everything to make sure immigration reform is done in a manner that respects the law and those who abide by it.”

Contentious discussion here...

Exposing Tea Party Express Co-Founder's Amnesty Ties

TPX has made NO statement (that I'm aware of) refuting Sal Russo and his pro-amnesty column. Consequently, its credibility as a TEA Party organization is completely blown as far as I'm concerned.

The Tea Party label is useless. So many people think that all the tea party is about is low taxes for upper-wage earners. Those folks totally abandoned other "tea party" issues after rallying conservatives to their agenda.

For most people I know, the primary thing that needs to be done is send home invaders who are in the US, don't let people into the US illegally or stay here when they shouldn't, and make EVerify the law to make sure jobs are going to US citizens. Groups like TPE do not support anything that cuts into that cheap labor supply.

Solution....there is no tea party. We need to look carefully at the records of candidates who say they're with us in wanting to save the US. They've got the publicity to be viable, it's up to them to articulate the issues and win. There have been so many candidates that said they're conservatives, and just didn't have the principled vision to run a winning campaign.

I just talked about this during the Nebraska primary. If Sarah and Ted Cruz had not endorsed Ricketts, as governor, he would have lost. Ben Sasse had no problem on his own, but the endorsement helped. Everyone, including democrats call themselves conservative and prolife here. They have no problem lying to get into office. If they don't have voting records you can look at what do you do? Nebraska right to life endorses on their word, then they can evolve or skip votes needed to fight abortion, and still call themselves prolife. It's so frustrating.

The Tea Party I’m interested in is the one who is not harping on taxes but is setting its goals on FREEDOM and LIBERTY.

Once that is accomplished, only then can the issue of taxes be addressed and actually changed.

That is the established party I have wondered if we (true conservatives) could join and take over by numbers and money instead of trying to convince the R’s that our path is the best path. Obviously the republican party does not like us, does not want us and is willing to go down in defeat to communists than include us.

Anyone who says that the illegal aliens need to “come out of the shadows” has been brainwashed by the commie lib “media”. They really need to get out some time and see what’s going on with “the little people.” Believe me, the illegal aliens do not hang out “in the shadows” except for when they are getting ready to rob, rape or kill somebody.

I am really getting tired of having my intelligence insulted by republican pro-amnesty cheerleaders being turned out by the Chamber of Commerce.

Always with a throw-away shot at the 'liberals' and a nudge in the ribs. We're not like 'them' doncha know.

Their arguments fail even a rudimentary logic check yet they never tire of offering them up like we're idiot drones.

Worse, they're taking us to exactly the same place as the progressives are.

So, question: Is Tea Party Express a fake Tea Party organization, or just one that differs in opinion?

Once the WALL is built and monitored, I can fall between the “every one of them gets thrown out, and their kids nd dogs too” and the “let them all stay and become citizens except the criminals” (yeah, I know, coming in was criminal, but you know what I mean). Border security FIRST. Then decide who gets to stay, who has to go, and enforce it.

None of that will happen under the current regime.

Yep, Rubio lied about all of that.(and no-one in GOP contradicted it either)

Any amnesty that includes path to citizenship without leaving the country is a jump ahead in line.

Yesterday I heard Rubio saying we need a higher retirement age for medicare and Social security, naturally starting 10 years from now ala Ryan. Now that really mixes well with amnesty.

Sorry, what I meant was give up tea party label or name because it's been invaded. There should be one true conservative patented name, like “The Constitutionalists” or something like that. A name true conservatives can count on that meet the standards of the constitution. They endorse candidates in every state. We must get organized today or we will end up with another rino on November.

Please don't be defeatist on this. If we can't organize, we can't win. Wouldn't Mark Levin be a good arbitrator of this?

The Senate amnesty bill is dangerously flawed, and its glaring omissions WRT protecting US ntl security, cannot ever serve as the basis for useful legislation.

By legalizing illegal aliens w/out shoring up law enforcement, we hand an engraved invitation to global Third Worlders----all of 'em salivating to ride the US gravy train.....each seperatist group conniving to achieve its hidden agenda.

Amnesty recklessly opens the door wide for illiterate, low-skilled aliens, born and bred in savage cultures, here to suck up US benefits and take jobs away from Americans.

Third Worlders may, in fact, contribute their labor to the US, but their loyalties are elsewhere----they have no intention of becoming Americanized....of participating as equals in American culture, revering our vast history, or preserving American values.

The Senate amnesty bill is a blueprint----it amply demonstrates that illegal separatist populations intend to usurp the US political system to advance their own hidden agenda.

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

Immigration “reform” includes two “slush funds” amounting to $150,000,000 that may be supplemented with additional taxpayer dollars for years to come, earmarked for non-profit organizations such as the blood-thirsty La Raza.

LA RAZA TEACHING HATE-AMERICA WITH OUR TAX DOLLARS La Raza Studies do not even try to sugar-coat its anti-America agenda and its bloodthirsty plans to kill off Americans: Raza Studies textbook “Occupied America,” by Rodolfo Acuña, includes a violent and blood-curdling speech given by university professor Jose Angel Gutierrez: “We have got to eliminate the gringo, and what I mean by that is, if the worst comes to the worst, we have got to kill him,” (pg. 323).

The following is taken directly from La Raza's Occupied America (pg. 167): “.......execute all white males over age 16,” (AKA the Plan of San Diego).

America-hating Raza Studies teach (1) violence, (2) undermining US ntl security, and, (3) the need for Mexico to "re- take seven states in the Southwest...in order to make the SW a Chicano nation. "

SCHOOL BOARD NUT CASES Adelita Grijalva is the woman on the Arizona school board pimping La Raza indoctrination programs in Tuscon schools. Adelita is all up in arms about Raza Studies getting tossed via the AZ state legislature's action...she is the daughter of Raul Grijalva (D-AZ-7).

Cong Raul Grijalva is one of Mexico’s most productive and loyal Fifth Column in the US Congress....aiding and abetting the latino criminal underworld, colluding to take back the SW, and loot and pillage the US treasury.

Raul and friend.

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

Republican Sen Charles Grassley tried to protect Americans w/ this amendment to the amnesty bill: "Congress should not thumb its nose at the millions of Americans who are victims of identity theft, often perpetrated by an undocumented person who steals Social Security numbers to get jobs, govt benefits, driver's licenses and more. This amendment will simply require the person applying for RPI status to disclose any previously used Social Security numbers," said Grassley. "It's the first step to helping clean up the mess that's been created for the victim of identity theft. The amendment also authorizes certain federal agencies, upon receipt of this information, to notify individuals who were the victims."

SEN SCHUMER WENT PROSTRATE, GOT OUT THE LIP BALM, AND PUCKERED UP: Dismissing Sen Grassley's proposal, Sen Schumer (Dimwit-NY) said: "When people are living in undocumented status, there are times, I suppose, when they've made up identities, made up Social Security numbers. How are they going to remember all that? (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.

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

A PROTECTION RACKET EMBEDDED IN US LAW Would you believe the amnesty bill actually protects corrupt Latino Public Officials from US laws and from prosecution.......only latino pols, mind you.

Vote-crazed Dems allow amnesty to absolve elected/appointed latinos holding US public office from prosecution for wrongdoing---for crimes like government fraud, graft, bribery, selling votes for cash....(the usual politician crimes).

There really is a Ntl Assoc of Latino Elected and Appt Officials organized for govt fraud.

NANCY SUCKS UP at Ntl Assoc of Latino Elected and Appt Officials Gala in DC
L-R--Sen. Robert Menendez (D-NJ);
Dr Salomon Melgen (under scrutiny for corrupt deals w/ Sen Menendez);
Rep Nancy Pelosi (Dimwit-CAL); Francisco
J. Sanchez, US Under Secy of Commerce for Intl Trade,
Emilio Sanchez, Pres/CEO of VOXXI.

I think that’s a big reason why the TP hasn’t evolved in the direction it should, as a shadow party within the GOP that organizes and consolidates its cloud within the party over the next four years, while forming the infrastructure to challenge and replace the GOP after that if the in-party approach doesn’t succeed.

The TP movement was still worthwhile, it simply has needed better and noncompromised leadership to hold up to the GOPe’s effort to kill off its own creation.

Norman Vincent Peale may think he’s kidding us along
But the John Birch Society knows he spilled the beans
He keeps on preaching brotherhood, but we know what he means

Why, oh why would We, the People have any compelling reasons to vote for any gullible Doormat Republicans, or Obama Democrats who have promised to advance Obama’s Agenda to “Fundamentally transform the United States of America” by increasing the number of undocumented Democrat voters who are Illegal Alien Invaders from Mexico?

The Exodus of the “11” million Illegal Alien Invaders from Mexico back to Mexico would lower the US unemployment rate from 6+ % to 1+ % !

All Doormat Boehner has to do is NOT bring his Boehner Amnesty Bill in the House up for a vote and Reid’s Senate Amnesty Bill dies a well-deserved, and NECESSARY death.

We, the People have seen our Federal Politicians in the Republican and Democrat Party enable Obama, for over five years, to bring great harm to the United States of America.

Those, in “both” political parties, who can’t stand America, stand against We, the People.

We, the People know that it is time, - - - time for a change in 2014.

Trust no TEA party that says they have a leader. Anyone making pronouncements and calling themselves the leader of a TEA party is suspect. If they do not have multiple govt. investigations in their history, ie. IRS, FBI, etc., because of their TEA party activity, they are establishment plants.

We went to the first Tea Party march and one other. After that the Tea Party seemed to become disorganized. There evidently was an organized effort to discredit the Tea Party. The Dems were calling it racist, the RINOs were trying to disassociate with the Tea Party, and the IRS was destroying it economically. I get request for donations from many of the Tea Party groups but haven't donated yet because I didn't know which ones were a waste of time.

What do Freepers think of the Tea Party Patriots? Or are there other Tea Party groups that are better?

This should include penalties, background checks to root out criminals, and the requirement that they learn English, understand the Constitution and be committed to our basic freedoms.

But it won't. The penalties will be waived, the FBI will be given 3 months to do 11 million background checks and all the ones not done will be given a pass, English will not be required, our own legislators don't understand the Constitution, and the only thing they will be committed to is getting free stuff from the Rats.

Tea Party Express was always a Republican operation to try to take advantage of the Tea Party wave and leverage it toward the party agenda. The real Tea Parties are grass roots and are as hard to lead as a room full of cats.

Apparently 1/7 of the prison population are illegals who are in for murder, rape, robbery, drunk driving etc etc.

It is not the law that needs fixed, it is the law that needs enforced.

I call it the CONSERVACAN PARTY——pull any remaining true conservatives out of what’s left of the republican party and go from there.

We almost lost Freedom Works in a simular manner if not for some extraordinary actions taken by Matt Kibe..

I was so hopeful that the Tea Party would not get compromised by the likes of Karl Rove and the GOPe!

It would appear that they AND Ophonybama’s thugs “Got to” Sal the same as they got to Chief Justice Roberts!

So, Sal, are you gonna miss the big bux ($2.5 million, reportedly) you took FRom TPE in recent years?

LIEberals and GOPes paid you more, did they?

TPE is officially on my sh!t list!

No more Taxman money, turncoats! And I hope that other donors drop you, as well!

We conservatives are screwed unless we can find another voice out here in the wilderness.

Tea Party Express was always a B.S. scam fundraising ploy. Their ads always sucked, and had zero impact. Tea Party Patriots is a serious TP organization, that is NOT for sale.

They always call the USA a democracy.

It'd not a democracy.

It's a Constitutional Republic.

I nominate The Constitutional Republic Party.

That has gone down a bit.

Obama recently released 36,000 illegal criminal insurgent aliens into the general population with no tracking whatsoever.

Yes, those in for “murder, rape, robbery, drunk driving etc etc.”

Obama and Holder and all of their cohorts...Pelosi, Reid etc etc are treasonous traitors who need to be arrested and tried. And the appropriate punishment administered

TPX has made NO statement (that I'm aware of) refuting Sal Russo and his pro-amnesty column.

The RiNO's love to pick off/buy off individuals and then pretend they represent everyone they formerly associated with. People ignore the screaming and yelling and disowning that follows, and only remember that Mr. Big of Superpatriot Express endorses Vidkun Quisling and surrender-monkey politics.

Well, with Motor Voter, that's 36,000 Democrat votes.
