Boehner: Amnesty After GOP Primary Filing Deadlines
Breibart.com ^ | December 4, 2013 | Matthew Boyle

Posted on 01/04/2014 10:14:24 AM PST by JeepersFreepers

A new report from the Texas-based Quorum Report, published by longtime Texas journalist Harvey Kronberg, says that House Speaker John Boehner plans to push amnesty legislation through the House, after the primary filing deadline for candidates. The move would prevent Tea Party from challenging GOP lawmakers who support amnesty in 2014.

. . . Boehner hired amnesty advocate Rebecca Tallent as his new immigration policy adviser. “Rebecca Tallent will join the office as Assistant to the Speaker for Policy handling immigration issues,” Boehner’s office said in a release on Tuesday. Tallent previously worked for Senate “Gang of Eight” member Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) on immigration policy. She helped him and the late Sen. Ted Kennedy (D-MA) draft their final immigration proposal—one that ultimately failed.

What’s to stop them, knowing as they do the treachery of RINO’s, from filing all the same guys they would have had the RINO’s betrayed their oaths before the deadline? Then if they need to oppose the incumbent they can do so, and if the sky splits open and it’s revealed that the guy actually wants to do his job, they can withdraw. But what would have to happen to convince you the RINO’s are reformed??? Is there anything that could do that? Haven’t just the betrayals they’ve perpetrated to date justified their being primaried?? Why is the clock always getting started from scratch as if history never happened?

I cannot wait for him to start a call to Fix O care. This POS has pissed me off now for 3 going on 4 years. He dissed the tea party electees and paid them token gratis for the GOP victory in 2010. From my perspective, he can stick his party designation where the sun don’t shine because any GOPer who votes for this drunk’s idea of immigration refore is not getting any support from me and in fact if they run I have already told them I will vote for the dem candidate hopefully to get them out. I figure, at least they know what they stand up for, I cannot abide a liar.

What is the point of being a law abiding citizen? Why do illegals get to break laws for years, and we law abiding citizens just pay and pay and pay?

What is the difference between Boehner’s party and the Democrats?

Why is there no select committees for Fast and Furious, the IRS scandal, Benghazi and the ACA web debacle?

Everyone already knows more or less who will vote for amnesty and who won’t so I don’t see the benefit of his strategy. What’s to stop us from being proactive with our votes? At least us smart ones. I know that Kevin McCarthy will vote with Boehner and he is my rep so no vote for him!

Many illegal aliens fight and sometimes injure Border Patrol Agents (my son was one that was injured once by an illegal alien), but yet, Bonehead wants to grant those illegals amnesty. . .to reward them for injuring Border Patrol Agents and then getting away?

What the heck!!!

Oh. . .and not to mention all the illegals that are driving drunk and killing Americans.

MOST illegal aliens are not the poor-suffering-honest-hard-working peasants that the left (and Bonehead) want us to believe they are, they are simply crooks and criminals of no value to even the cesspool called “mexico.”

“What’s to stop them, knowing as they do the treachery of RINO’s, from filing all the same guys they would have had the RINO’s betrayed their oaths before the deadline? “

Successful house candidates spend $1.5 million dollars on average in the main election. To primary somebody you’ll probably need nearly that much so count it as $3 million dollars. Waiting until after the primary filing robs potential challengers of the impetus needed to generate that first $1.5 million dollars.

When Bonehead and Ryno give the Democrats 11 million new voters it will be the (in this order of occurrence) the end of the Republican Party as it will be voted out of any power and we will enter a new era of one party rule; it will end America because when a country has no control of its borders it ceases to be a sovereign country and finally it will be the end of the Roman Catholic Church in America (and how does the Church survive on what donations it receives from Europe?). This will happen this way: On Sunday a twelve person family of “new” Americans will sit in a pew and put a dollar (if anything) in the collection basket. On Monday that family will be at the local Catholic Charities office with their hands out taking everything but the light bulbs and on Tuesday they will thank America and the Catholic Church by voting Democrat. When the Democrats get total power they will finally realize their dream of destroying the Catholic Church, their arch enemy in they plans to socialize America. What Obamacare has in it to force Catholics to abandon their religious principles will be only the beginning.
Mr. Boehner, when you do this you will replace Benedict Arnold as the worse traitor in our history.
I will say these things over and over again right up until they stab us in the back.
Amnesty will mean there will be no Republican takeover of Senate and Boehner will finally be replaced - by Pelosi.

Judicial Watch’s Ten Most Wanted Corrupt Politicians of 2013

Speaker of the House John Boehner is selected for what Government Accountability Institute President Peter Schweizer calls the “Tollbooth Strategy,” explaining, “You pay money at a tollbooth in order to use a road or bridge.

The methodology in Washington is similar: if someone wants a bill passed, charge them money to allow the bill to move down the legislative highway.” Schweizer reported that Boehner apparently used the Tollbooth Strategy to collect more than $200,000 in political donations from executives just days before holding votes on bills critically important to their industries.

OK John, not a problem.

All of the base can now safely assume that a candidate is pro-amnesty UNLESS they publicly campaign that they are NOT pro-amnesty and then be vetted by local and state TEA Party organizations.

By making this move the dummy just pushed amnesty out to the front of the campaign issues.

What a moron.

Matthew Boyle, the writer of this article, appears to me to be a typical lazy journalist. First of all, who the hell is Scott Braddock? Are we, Mr. Boyle, to take what ANY person on the face of the earth says as gospel? Just spit out a name and that will suffice for you to make your points??!!

Mr. Boyle further opines that:

“Poe, Johnson and Carter are connected closely with the Texas business community, which Braddock noted in the Quorum Report story are very much in favor of amnesty”.

This statement is really tiresome. I’ve been a member of the Texas business community for 40 years and know many others that have too. I have employed over the same time period hundreds of Mexican laborers and craftsmen. I have stated right here on FR several times that without these hard working guys, there would have been no construction industry in Texas for me to thrive in, and that is a fact.

But, I DO NOT SUPPORT ANY FORM OF AMNESTY AND I DO NOT BELIEVE “THE BUSINESS COMMUNITY IN TEXAS” does either!!! Boyle needs to get off his butt and do a little deeper research.

I do support a bullet proof guest worker program where these people can legally work here but talk of being a citizen is a whole nuther subject! Citizenship must be earned just like any other immigrant has to do. With the technology available today, precise and instant identification can be made of any individual so guest worker programs that work can be put in place.

Finally, a precedent to the guest worker program must be that the border is secure. I prefer an Israeli Style concrete wall that runs the entire length of the border and is patrolled with more drones and much fewer personnel.

So, the wall and a secure guest worker program is the answer and such a program will dramatically reduce the coyote traffic, the drug cartels and terrorist issues!

I see. Apparently you also support the hospitals and public schools subsidizing your foreign laborers because American workers have to pay Social Security and other taxes to cover those costs.

But they don’t need $1.5MM to file. My point is that if they file a guy, they they keep the door open and the deadline becomes meaningless. Later is better still, sure, for the RINO’s, because like you note it hampers fundraising by the TP candidate, but just the exact deadline itself doesn’t have to mean anything so long as the TP is thinking ahead.

“But they don’t need $1.5MM to file.”

Does the Tea Party have enough viable candidates to cover all bets? And, if they end up filing on the wrong guy they’ve tied up a viable asset who might have been better used elsewhere. It’s my impression that potential viable candidates are few and far between.

Yes, I like the idea.

Does the Tea Party have some overarching strategist who can handicap the odds and put candidates together with funders? If so, I don’t who it is.

I defended Boner for years. Including on FR. But he’s mostly just an enabler, or useful idiot ?, for the Obama/ pelosi/ Reid agenda. What has he accomplished for the betterment of USA? He’s totally squandered the opportunities for good public service that his position has afforded him. I think it is well time for him to take a nice retirement so that some real leadership type person could have a chance at the job.

I was thinking along some of the same lines. Now that we know Boehner’s plan, it doesn’t make any difference.

Only problem is if amnesty is a tar baby. Do they want us to go near it because most Americans have been cornswaggled into being for it?

I revert to my basic maxim: Do the right thing and let the chips fall where they may. Put this fact (of Boehner’s plan) in the hopper with everything else and run primary candidates who are against amnesty, among other things of course.

So, what if they get the cursed thing through before the elections? Does that harm all our tea party anti-amnesty candidates? Repeat step one: Do the right thing. Their campaigns alone could change the tide, a collateral benefit.

If the President and members of Congress don’t want to follow the law or simply change the law to suit their corrupt aims, many ordinary Americans might not feel obligated to follow any laws that they don’t like. This is very bad.

What our political leaders are doing is inviting lawlessness and social disorder. We live in dark times. Everything is upside down. None of it makes any sense to me. Going Galt is looking more and more appealing.

If he wins the primary then Patriots should prepare to vote for the democrat because this GOPe leader is an enemy and must be replaced. His defeat probably would not result in loss of majority, and it would give the Patriots one last chance to replace the current traitorous leadership.

If they don’t do that, then it really doesn’t much matter because political solutions are dwindling before our eyes. Walter Williams speaks wisdom.

I do not understand why the true conservatives in the HOR didn’t dump Boehner.

I have had a thought lately that maybe the TEA party Patriots should change their Party affiliation, that could deny the GOPe a majority which would force the GOPe into a coalition type situation, and that could result in a big shakeup in leadership.

That may be the only way to stop this amnesty insanity, because once it is done, it will not be undone.

I wish I could believe in honest elections....sigh.....
