Posted on 07/08/2013 10:02:11 PM PDT by JohnHuang2
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid challenged House Republicans to forgo their own debate and pass the Senates immigration bill instead, telling Speaker John A. Boehner to ignore his Republican colleagues in order to get a bill done.

During the airing of an hour-long Obama infomercial last Sunday, titled "Meet the Press," columnist David Brooks embarrassed himself again by (aside from appearing on NBC) claiming that granting amnesty to millions of lawbreakers is an 'improvement' over the current de facto amnesty. The reason for the current "de facto amnesty" is that the immigration laws on the books are not being enforced, so let's pass more laws.
But, make-believe "Republican" Marco Rubio insists you can really trust Obama to enforce the border security provisions in Rubio's amnesty bill even though the border security measures are riddled with loopholes. It's false advertisement (kinda like Rubio's 2010 campaign, when he was impersonating a conservative).
Yet, even if the strictest, no-nonsense border security measures were spelled out in Rubio's amnesty bill, with no wiggle room, what guarantee is there that the lawless Obama administration will enforce them? Hmmmmm, let's see:
-- Obama has such deep respect for the law that he picked a serial tax cheat to head up Treasury during his first term;
-- Obama's administration illegally shipped thousands of guns to the Mexican drug cartels in Operation Fast and Furious;
-- Eric Holder followed that up by lying to Congress about it, claiming he had no knowledge of everything going on around him; Obama then blamed Bush for starting Fast and Furious which started on Obama's watch;
-- Despite video proof, Obama's Justice Department cronies dismissed charges of voter intimidation against the New Black Panther Party;
-- Obama falsely claimed the Benghazi terrorist attack was not a terrorist attack, citing video 'proof' in the form of a YouTube movie trailer, which had nothing to do with Benghazi;
-- Obama falsely claimed there was no terrorist attack at Fort Hood, after 13 people were murdered in a terrorist attack. Obama called it nothing more than "workplace violence" (which is what Obama apparently thinks the shooter meant when he yelled, "Allahu Akbar!");
-- Obama has made illegal appointments to federal agencies, defying the Senate confirmation process, claiming they were recess appointments even though the Senate was in session;
-- Speaking of which, Obama appointed dozens of "czars" specifically to avoid the Senate confirmation process, as part of his heartfelt commitment to running the most transparent regime in history;
-- Obama filled his administration with lobbyists, after vowing in his'08 campaign not to fill his administration with lobbyists;
-- Obama's 2008 campaign was fined by the FEC to the tune of $375,000, which ranks among the biggest ever imposed on a presidential campaign;
-- Obama instructed his Justice Department not to enforce or uphold the Defense Of Marriage Act because he was suddenly 'evolving' on the issue;
-- Obama started a war with Libya without Congressional approval. Obama in '08 ran as the peace candidate. Peaceful Obama is currently trying to start a war with Syria;
Obama started a war on coal without Congressional approval. Unable to ram cap-and-trade through the Senate, Obama ordered his EPA to squeeze the coal industry out of existence;
-- Unable to ram the DREAM Act through the Senate, Obama decided to impose his variant of the DREAM Act via executive order. Amnesty applicants aren't given any background checks;
-- Obama's IRS illegally targeted Tea Party and other conservative groups in an effort to illegally defund opponents before the 2012 campaign;
-- Obama's Justice Department spied on Fox News reporter James Rosen, his parents and the AP;
-- Eric Holder followed that up by lying to Congress, claiming he didn't spy on the AP, only his deputy did;
-- Obama's Justice Department decided to drop its criminal probe of Wall Street criminal Jon Corzine, who caused MF Global's collapse in 2011 after his 'inappropriate' handling of customers' funds;
-- HHS's Kathleen Sebelius has been soliciting funds from groups she regulates and directing the extorted money to "Enroll America", run by an Obama crony;
-- Unable to implement the employer mandate contained in his own "signature achievement", Obama decided to temporarily disregard this key requirement in Obamacare, putting off its implementation for another year;
At the rate Obama keeps breaking laws, he'll have to pardon himself before he leaves office. But 13 Republican morons in the Senate, even with the benefit of all this hindsight, voted to put their trust in a serial liar and lawbreaker. This administration ridiculously insists the border is secure so there's no need to enforce immigration laws. The House needs to kill the bill.
My Two Cents...
Tuesday-morning ping! Have a great day, y’all!
Instead of going through the usual song and dance of Republicans talking tough, then passing the bill.
How about they just the chase and pass the stupid bill (like we all know they’re going to)?
Boehner so far is actually showing a spine.
Color me shocked.
House to Reid: Upper U.S.
it’s bs kabuki theater. it’s going to get done in the end, one way or another.
Go $hit in yer hat, Harry.
BLUESLIP THE BILL
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
and of course boner must not bring the Senate bill for the House to vote on. no senate bill, no border security bill from the House ,nothing.
Good list. Looks like August 2013 could be a repeat of August 2009. Unless all our critters go into hiding.
Absolutely awesome post!
Depressing, but truthful and awesome!
I don’t have much/any confidence in the House leadership.
Assume for a moment the Senate Bill passes.
What happens when the NEXT Tsuami of illegals plants their butts in the USA????
What would Mexico do??
Excellent yet again, JohnHuang2.
