Skip to comments.The Straw that May Break the Establishment's Back

House Majority Leader Eric Cantors (R-Va.) ouster in a recent primary campaign was undoubtedly a signal to politicians of both established political brands. It is only too obvious, media and politicians to the contrary notwithstanding, that Cantors constituents unseated him because of his position in support of rewarding illegal immigrants with an imminent path to citizenship, while securing our borders seemed a far more distant priority.
In fact, this is so obvious that few would argue against the truth in that last statement. The more fashionable tactic is to assert that this primary was just a microcosm that just cannot, in any way, represent the American people. Brit Hume suggested something akin to this on Fox News, saying that Republicans will go forward into the 2016 election without their name associated with immigration reform which will make it very difficult for any Republican to become president. And Las Vegas Sands Corp. CEO Sheldon Adelson argues the very same point at Politico.
If we are led to believe, Adelson writes, that the results of a local election with 12 percent voter turnout in a single congressional district (one of 435) with a mere 65,000 votes cast is all that it takes to disrupt a necessary and important policy debate, then America is in big trouble. Far better, he assumes, to institute a process in which all undocumented immigrants receive permits to legally work here. This, in other words, is a suggestion that our betters among the elite, unfettered by their constituents opinions, should offer a holistic pardon to violators of federal law, and the eventual reward should be a path to citizenship -- and all the benefits which citizenship brings, via rights to vote and taxpayer-funded social entitlement programs.

The libs and the media (but I repeat myself) think and report Cantor’s defeat as an outlier but it wasn’t. It is how the majority in this country think about securing our borders. The RINO’s in Congress are scared witless if they have any sense.
“It is only too obvious, media and politicians to the contrary notwithstanding, that Cantors constituents unseated him because of his position in support of rewarding illegal immigrants with an imminent path to citizenship, while securing our borders seemed a far more distant priority.”
I don’t know the reason for his loss, but I’d be willing to bet it wasn’t just immigration. Frankly I can’t stand to look at or listen to that guy. I don’t know how he ever won anything. I’m glad to see him go.
“The libs and the media (but I repeat myself) think and report Cantors defeat as an outlier but it wasnt. It is how the majority in this country think about securing our borders. The RINOs in Congress are scared witless if they have any sense.”
I believe it is more specifically how the majority of Republicans think about the borders. The majority in this country elected Obama twice.
He really is repulsive. I am a constituent, and driving my wife to the polling place, I decided to make an exception to my policy of not voting since 2012 and voted for Brat.
Immigration “reform” will be passed in the lame duck session if it isn’t passed before the midterms. Obama and the press are going to beat this drum hard through election day. The big money supporting the Republican establishment is all in. Even Rupert Murdcoch, owner of Fox and the Wall Street Journal, is in.
This is a battle between the elites and the country class and the elites will win this one. There will be window dressing, claiming the borders will be secured. However, we’ve seen this game before. George H.W. Bush went lax on border enforcement as soon as he took office because negotiating the NAFTA trade agreement with Mexico was more important to him than national sovereignty. Clinton, who signed the Bush negotiated NAFTA bill into law continue the Bush policy of not securing the border. Bush’s son George W. did the same and tried to get an amnesty bill passed. Obama’s policy toward the border has been more of the same but for different reasons.
A nation that does not control its borders is not a nation. We can thank Teddy Kennedy, both Bush presidents, Bill Clinton, and Barack Obama for the ongoing foreign invasion that will only accelerate once the amnesty bill passes.
I think there’s more than just the issue of illegal immigration at work in these Republican primary battles. A lot of conservatives simply look at Washington, DC as a foreign capital — and anyone who becomes a Beltway fixture is rightly seen as untrustworthy to stand up for conservative issues.
Amnesty will win because nature always wins. A nation — or even something pretending to be a nation — can’t survive without replacing the 50-60 million children it aborted out of existence over the last 40+ years.
And when the Collapse comes. . . .God help the “amnesty” people.
Because nobody else will. . .
I’m waiting for the Brown vs. Shaheen race to shock the pollsters.
B/c no one believed that Constitutional fable, Cantor doubled down---he later offered a new explanation for why he supports granting amnesty to individuals brought into the country illegally as minors. It's Biblical, he said in a local radio interview.
That "revelation" offed the sucker but good. So much for Cantor's gulling the voters---endorsing a measure intended to dismantle US ntl security.
Cantor stupidly believed the rest of us just fell of turnip truck---that we know nothing about the Dream Act except what he makes up.
THE FACTS ARE THESE---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 separatist 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.
The Senate "Amnesty" bill includes two slush funds amounting to $150 MILLION annually, replenish-able with eternal tax dollars for years to come....... earmarked for groups like the blood-thirsty La Raza.
One of the Congressman voting for this outrage should be charged w/ conflict of interest: Cong Julian Castro's mother is a La Raza stalwart.
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 Mexicos 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.
Cantor and friend.
This seems like a fair solution, and should not much incentivize further illegal immigration.
“A lot of conservatives simply look at Washington, DC as a foreign capital “
See my tagline, which is a Reagan quote.
When he went on 60 minutes a few years ago and bragged about having an ultra liberal wife, that was the time to cut him loose. Other that that, he’s one of the most plastic, fake looking people I’ve ever seen.
Cantors constituents unseated him because of his position in support of rewarding illegal immigrants.
That has a sweet ring to it I hope it spreads like wild fire.
That’s a great quote. Thanks!
