Live Thread: Senate Amnesty Debate (CRITICAL 2ND CLOTURE VOTE TODAY!) Woo hoo!! It's DEAD!!
The U.S. Senate with Free Republic Input | June 28, 2007 | truthkeeper

Posted on 06/28/2007 6:25:57 AM PDT by truthkeeper

Here we are again my friends, hopefully for the last debate thread on this particular monstrous legislation. Proceedings are supposed to begin at 9:30 a.m. EST, with the cloture vote being taken at 10:30 a.m.

On a personal note, you've all been wonderful in your passion, vigilance, and commitment to the principles on which our country was founded. If I have to be in a foxhole, I want to be in it with you guys.

Sen. Smith [Kathryn Jean Lopez]
I’m told has decided to switch his vote to pro-cloture.

Well, he got his 30 pieces of silver. It will be remembered.

Newest Senator [Kate O'Beirne]

NR met Senator Barrasso of Wyoming this morning, who arrives just in time to vote against cloture on the immigration bill. But he indicted that he comes to Washington well-informed enough to vote the right way when he explained that he had xeroxed copies of a few recent pages of NR in his briefcase.

Wrong. EMP is the directed product of a thermonuclear explosion whose radiation is designed to be emitted primarily in the electromagnetic waveslenths.

It IS a vast explosion but the beauty of it is that the pulse is very large in radius & effect, and can be detonated far from the target area.

Everything else is science fiction.

Based on this morning’s news stories, Mich has gone underground as he is under tremendous pressure from Jorge Bush and Elanine Cho (his wife) on one hand and from the Republican caucus on the other. So, Mitch has taken the coward’s route and has gone missing instead. Scumbag.

Major Garrett was just on with ED Hll on Fox and said by his count he thinks the bill is “Dead”. This could explain the last ditch sob story effort.

.I actually voted not once but twice for BUSH...Talk about regret...My apologies to ALL..

Me too, but Bush is a liar and that's not our fault.

8 speeches on immigration "reform" from 2/2004 to this year. In the first 6 he vowed "no amnesty" and a 3 year work visa, renewable once, "then go home". He said that last part repeatedly.

Now he's supporting permanent residence for free, and a "path to citizenship."

The man lied to us, plain and simple and provable by his own speeches.

He of course turned the letter over to the Gestapo Capitol Hill police.
