HALEY BARBOUR: CONGRESS CAN STILL PASS AMNESTY AFTER CANTOR DEFEAT
Breitbart Big Government ^ | 16 Jun 2014 | by TONY LEE

Posted on 06/16/2014 8:04:02 PM PDT by kingattax

On Monday, despite House Majority Leader Eric Cantor's (R-VA) shocking primary loss last week that was viewed as a referendum against amnesty legislation, former Mississippi Governor and lobbyist Haley Barbour said the House could still pass amnesty legislation this year.

"I don't think Eric's loss should have anything to do with it," Barbour said at the New York Meeting before pushing for a bill that would give a pathway to citizenship to "everybody's who's here illegally" so long as they confess they are in America illegally, pay fines and back taxes, and are put on probation.

Barbour said the House should pass "a very strong bill" that is to the right of the Senate's comprehensive amnesty bill and emphasized that "we gotta control the border at the end of the day or the American people will have a right to be furious with us."

The House can also declare war on China tomorrow. The only problem is getting enough people to vote that way.

The Republicans in the House that may have been leaning towards Amnesty know FULL WELL that they will almost certainly face a primary challenge in 2016 (and possibly a greatly increased general election challenge, as their base stays home). And they probably won’t be as lucky as Cantor, who had all the power, and faced a terribly UNDERFUNDED novice challenger - as there is now blood in the water.

The Republicans there may be IDIOTS, still trusting their gay pollsters and advisers - but they are still political animals and they know FULL WELL that their careers may well end on that vote.

They won’t get near it.

This is really sad. Back in the early 90's Haley Barbour was the architect of the party that Newt Gingrich used to overthrow the democrat majority for the first time in a lifetime. Karl Rove and George Bush were nothing but pimples on your ass back then when the real victory happened. Those here too young to know about that, will not understand what their elders did on their behalf.

To see Haley Barbour turn into a crass sellout like this therefore is just wrong.

I was talking about this the other day how liberals and RINOs always love to use words that mislead people, such as this word they were using for Bowe Bergdahl the other day “reintegration” which is word used in psychiatry to describe someone with mental illness being cured. Gee, why would they use that word? Because they are going to use mental illness to excuse his desertion.

And then this word “Amnesty”, what does that word really mean? It means to pardon someone for a crime. In other words, anyone here illegally will no longer be declared illegal.

So HOW the hell is that suppose to solve our border problem? It isn’t! It’s going to make it WORSE! This is just one more huge con game by the libs and RINOs when the word that should be used is ENFORCEMENT.

You haven't controlled the border for decades, so the people are already rightfully furious (Has he completely forgotten about the 1986 amnesty disaster?). They are also furious that you aren't listening, and you are ignoring the will of the people as if you are part of some despotic regime.

He is as corrupt as corrupt can get. He’d sell out the interests of American citizens for a few tens of thousands of “consultant” dollars. And he is selling out our interests as we speak.

An early thing that our Mississippi patriots can do to weaken this cabal of traitors is to vote the Barbour puppet Cochran out of office next week.

Barbour just might be terminally infected with the dreaded Boehnerism cancer.

The always present symptom of Boehnerism is an immediate cave-in to whatever any “best friend” Democrat wants.

Haley has gone over to the dark side.

Years ago, as Repub Chairman, he called things straight and went right to the heart of matters. Now, he sounds like head of the GOP-e, trying to be successor to Rove.

Not quick learners, are they?

No, they are. Remember Obamney Care? The Dims lost big so they just doubled down on it all while they still could! The “Establishment” has learned from the Dims (just as the Mexicans have learned from their early TX mistake with open borders).

Ok, they have not learned from the Dims how to defeat the Dims; they have learned from the Dims how to JOIN the Dims; and to hell with the base, the future of the country, the Constitution, freedom, security, etc. They can force this down our gullets against our will and feel good about it. Minitrue will praise them. The Dims will praise them. The rest of us don’t matter.

The establishment is as much the enemy as the dims are.

“...so long as they confess they are in America illegally, pay fines and back taxes, and are put on probation.”

Yeah, I’ll buy THAT for a dollar.

How stupid do guys Barbour think we are? If amnesty is passed, all the punitive measures will be watered down, dropped or just not enforced (kind of like our immigration laws now). And the border will NOT be secured. It will just further open the floodgates to more illegal aliens.

That is such a myth you are buying into. Barbour and Gingrich were never conservative, but they read the the electorate correctly and peddled what they needed to, with every intention of abandoning it as soon as they could. Barbour is not a sell out, he was never a conservative and only believes in the most naked self interest.
