Skip to comments.Pelosi: Republicans need immigration reform to win presidency again (I'll have a double-layered...)
Posted on 06/30/2013 11:32:41 PM PDT by JohnHuang2
Republicans will have to pass immigration reform if they want to ever win another presidential race, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Sunday.

Make-believe "Republican" Marco Rubio and the rest of the amnesty set argue hysterically that the pressure on the Republican-run House to cave on amnesty is now "overwhelming" because amnesty was passed by the Democrat-run Senate. We shall overcome: Senate Democrats demand House Republicans commit suicide, or else they're really, really dead!
According to this brilliantly irresistible logic, your typical Tea Party Congressman who ran on a no-amnesty platform should now cave because a massive, colossal, humongous and overwhelming 14 Republican senators voted for amnesty, whereas only a teensy-weensy 32 Republican senators voted against. All Democrats in the Senate voted for Rubio's amnesty bill, officially titled, The Mexican Voting Rights Act of 2013.
Or, to put it more delicately, 14 Republicans joined all 54 Democrats to serve Republicans for dinner. (Rubio immediately hailed the vote as finally bringing Senate cannibals out of the shadows.)
(Say, since no senator actually read the roughly 1,200-page bill before passing it, how about literacy tests for U.S. senators from now on?)
The list of Senate Republicans voting in favor of Rubio's amnesty bill, which combines promises of enhanced border security with promises of enhanced border security, included such impressive luminaries of the 'conservative' movement as John McCain, Lindsey Graham, Mark Kirk, Susan Collins and, of course, Marco Rubio (which translated means "Judas Iscariot").
And if that didn't impress you, Lisa Murkowski also voted for it!
After Thursday's vote, Obama took time out from his tireless hunt in Africa for the real killers of Benghazi to call the Gang of Eighters to thank them for passing the biggest must-pass-in-order-to-see-the-itsy-bitsy-spiders-crawling-inside-the-comprehensive crap sandwich since the last comprehensive crap sandwich, Obamacare. According to news reports, Obama spoke to Chuck Schumer but oddly was unable to reach Schumer's mistress, Marco Rubio.
Obama reportedly then calls House Speaker John Boehner to demand action on the basis of what Harry Reid's Senate did, the action-demanding based on the notion that Rubio's pork-laden amnesty scam is now this unstoppable juggernaut, which I suppose makes sense if you're as math challenged as Obama and 14 Senate Republicans:
-- "Comprehensive Immigration reform" routinely ranks last or close to the bottom on the list of issues Americans have the hots for, likely because Americans sense "Immigration reform" is to "reform" what Nancy Pelosi is to mental health;
-- Hispanics comprised no more than 8.4 percent of the electorate in the 2012 election;
-- Even if 70 percent of Hispanics had rushed to the polls to vote for Romney last November they'd still end up with four more years of Obama; for some astonishing reason, political experts in D.C. find this astonishing;
-- When a Republican administration last passed amnesty in 1986, Hispanic voters kindly rewarded Republicans in the next presidential election by flocking to Democrats in even greater numbers; 14 Senate Republicans are convinced the fix for this is to pass an even bigger amnesty;
-- Legalizing 11 million lawbreakers -- in other words, increasing the Democrat voter rolls -- via amnesty is oddly not a winning strategy for Republicans; mysteriously, the same goes for taking political advice from Schumer, Pelosi, Reid and their household help;
The jobless rate is 7.6 percent, the long term unemployed total 4.4 million, wages are falling, lousy economy, jobless recovery -- yeah, let's flood the market with cheap foreign labor.
On the Sunday shows, altruistic Democrats again were tenderly worried about the GOP's future and warned that if House Republicans block this amnesty giveaway to foreigners, they're finished! Kaput. It would show Republicans dangerously out of touch with Chuck Schumer. Passing amnesty for people who aren't supposed to be here is "certainly right for the Republicans if they ever want to win a presidential race," asserted preeminent expert of Republican politics, Nancy Pelosi, on one of the Sunday shows.
In the end, the 68 votes the comprehensive-son-of-amnesty-2006 got in the Senate fell short of the comprehensive 70 votes the amnesiac amnesty pushers claimed just before the vote as the threshold of unstoppable status, which after the vote got quietly lowered a coupla notches. "I believe by the end of this year, the House will pass the Senate bill," predicted the Prophet Schumer on another Sunday show. Given this, the appropriate response is to make sure the 'unstoppable juggernaut' Senate bill is accorded all the respect it deserves by breaking out the shovels and giving it a proper burial in the House. This also means NO ACTION on "immigration reform" needed in the House because if you think the border security and E-Verify measures the House ships to conference won't return as full America-goes-banana-Republic amnesty, I've got a double-layered, 1,930-mile border fence to sell you.
My Two Cents...
Monday-morning ping! Have a great 4th of July week!
But anyone who ever made it thru school yard politics in grade school knows that.
Yet many GOPers continue to follow the advice of Republican-saboteur-in-chief Karl Rove.
i love repubs who believe nice, sweet advice from their friends across the aisle. /everything sarc
the gop-e is in n it. rinos are in on it. libtards are just projecting like normal.
Only chance to stop the Amnesty bill is for the House not to consider any immigration related bill at all.
Michelle Bachman explained it. ANY House bill no matter if it promises all the border security in the world will be a trojan horse.NO bill at all must come out of the House because it will be merged with the Senate Amnesty and trojan horse bill. Call congress.
Tell them to stop all Amnesty or immigration bills.they are all trojan horse bills. some will promise border security that will never be enforced anyway.
Bachmann explained it . The House will write a border security bill only . then in conference the senate will add the virus and then bring it back to the house. then the conservatives wont vote for it but democrats will all vote for it so then they only need 10% of republicans to pass Amnesty and the virus that will destroy America. so any bill at all will be added the virus . so best thing is for Boner to not let any immigration bill at all come out of the House. that is the only hope . call boner and the members of the House.
Tom Tancredo echos what Michelle Bachmann said.
call congress . no bill at all from the House
Love it when DemocRats tell Republicans what they have to do to win elections.
I’d love to tell Dumocraps to stick their faces in a blender to win the next election but that’s just me...
Republicans need working people to finally get fed up with the democratic party’s BS.
Full onset of dementia for the b-tch.
And you know that this bitch has the best interests of the pubbie party at heart.
Thank you Nancy,I know you have the best interests of the Republican party in your heart.
Yes, we should always turn to Nancy for sound advice. /sarcasm
How is this different from satan who lied to the SON OF GOD in the wilderness? Hint... it does not differ at all.
Hi John! Long time no chat. Excellent job sir. Almost (note word is not commitment variety) wanted me to brush up on my Finest HTML skills for appropriate borders And graphics to showcase you fine work
Nice to see it and you. Are you on Facebook? PM details if yes
We can see who Mccain, Grahmansety and Rubio get their advice from. I am sure Pelosi is really worried that the GOP wont win the WH.
Dems are predicting that Bohner cant get a GOP bill through the House so he just puts Reids (Rubios) bill up for a vote and passes that with mostly Dem votes.
Where is Rubio?
See : #18
Don’t take her words lightly. Every time this shrew utters something sane people dismiss as ridiculous, it ends up becoming reality.
I figure Rubio will be the nominee in 2016.
What does she say that rings true to you?
Obama-care was a little different in that she ran the House. She and Obama could go to her caucus and beg and twist arms in that case. In this case her demanding they pass it isnt going to convince many GOP members to pass it.
I worry that the House Republicans cant unite on a bill that Dems really will reject and so Bohner just passes the Senate bill.
I can’tt even begin to guess the mechanics of it, it’s just my observation that when she makes these statements, statements that we would normally say ‘pffffffffft’ to, she’s correct. IMHO, she has the dirt and is absolutely giddy to get out in front of it to let us all marvel at her wonderful insight.....(gulp).
Bless your heart, Nancy.
Thank you for your wonderful essay-posts, dear JohnHuang2!
Schumie claims many important voting blocs support reform-----Catholics, evangelicals for example.
But Schumer makes a huge mistake---thinking voters will cast their ballots based on the single issue of reform.
Yes, real Repubs (not RINOS) need to step up to the plate and reassure conservative voters-----but in no way will Dems get votes based solely on reform.
Repubs need to start mining disaffected voters who are incensed about Obama's antics. The stench from this admin's crimes/screw-ups stretches far and wide:
<><> there's the Benghazi stench
<><> Hillary's state dept's coverup of sex scandals---obstructing justice---scrubbing investigations
<><> Holder's DOJ stenches (AP--Rosen--monitoring USSC and Congress' Verizon blackberries)
<><> stench-a-rama: IRS targeting (enraging legions of IRS haters)
<><> IRS stealing 60 thousand medical records
<><> HHS' Sibelius strong-arming Obamacare insurance providers for money
<><> NSA snooping---infuriating millions of young twitter/facebook users
<><> IRS sending $45 Million/that's 32,000 EITC refunds to illegals at ONE address.
<><> Letting Snowden globe-trot w/ US secrets
<><> EPA using phantom email accounts
<><> O/Holder Fast and Furious gun-running to savage drug cartels, got two American border patrol agents killed
<><> Ohaha giving 5 million top security clearance---w/ no oversight as to the Ntl security implications
<><> govt wiretaps rose 71% last year alone
<><> O using drones to shoot down Americans
<><> the continuing TSA travesties.
<><> Solyndra and other green money-laundries.
Rubio added FREE CELL PHONES for illegals.....you subsidize via your phone bills.
What else is hiding in this bill?
Accuracy in Media reports that the immigration reform bill includes two slush funds amounting to $150,000,000 that may be supplemented with additional taxpayer dollars for years to come. These funds would go to public or private, non-profit organizations such as the blood-thirsty La Raza, Casa de Maryland, and the leftist American Immigration Lawyers Association!
These, and multiple latino organizations are devoted to helping illegals apply for legal status. The bill not only provides amnesty for illegal immigrants, but does so as well for their employers.
As the conservative Center for Immigration Studies points out, Illegal aliens will be rewarded for breaking laws for which American citizens are routinely punished such as the use of fraudulent Social Security cards, while imposing a $1,000 penalty that in many cases would be waived. Then they would be issued a new Social Security number without any past bad credit or arrest records.
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) who was just narrowly re-elected to our US Congress. 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.
So nice of the Dems to be watching out for the Republicans, and providing political advice to ensure their electoral viability.
All the same: no thanks, Nancy!
” Dems are predicting that Bohner cant get a GOP bill through the House so he just puts Reids (Rubios) bill up for a vote and passes that with mostly Dem votes.
Where is Rubio? “
After assuring us that Obama would ‘hate this bill’ his best move is to hide for a while till we forget about him and what he did, till a new version comes back to the Senate. Then I guess he has to work his magic again.
Where is Rubio?
Passing around his resume at Fla taco joints-—trying to find work as a busboy.
He’ll need work after he gets thrown out of office.
” After assuring us that Obama would hate this bill his best move is to hide for a while till we forget about him and what he did,”
Snake in the grass....
He is very smooth though.
A side from a few token comments accusing Obama of being weak on Syria (who cares?) and weak on enforcing immigration, Rubio goes after no-one, he attacks no-one.
Rubio's sweet talk world :
#1 On illegals : good hard working socially conservative immigrants
#2 ON Senate Dems : good faith partners who want whats best for America just like I do
#3 On conservatives who dont like this bill,: good patriotic Americans who been let down so many times by the government they don't trust us to build the fence.
I guess from #3 we can assume that Rubio will restore conservative'ss trust that immigration reform will really work. ("I believe, I believe")
Speaking of trust, why is he hiding?
briar patch Pelosi
rino-dems are the majority in the house
what is a boner repub but a rino?
” #1 On illegals : good hard working socially conservative immigrants
#2 ON Senate Dems : good faith partners who want whats best for America just like I do
#3 On conservatives who dont like this bill,: good patriotic Americans who been let down so many times by the government they don’t trust us to build the fence.”
Pretty transparent to me.
She will probably succeed.
The Pubbies are STUPID!!!
Thank you so much for always bringing the humor bomb.
You, and your writing, are amazing, and keep me sane.
Yes, I’m sure Nancy has the GOP’s best interests at heart. Yes indeed. Thanks for caring, Nance.
Beautifully done piece, John. One of my favorites that I’ve read of yours.
