GOP Base Spoils GOP Leadership’s Parting Gift To Eric Cantor: Amnesty

As a way to honor Eric Cantor’s last day as Majority Leader in the House, Speaker John Boehner did his best to help Barack Obama replace the Republican base with teenagers from Central America. Unfortunately for him, the base has identified mass immigration as the critical issue in American politics and brought enough pressure to prevent the bill being brought to the floor. The danger now: the stupider GOP congresscritters, believing they have to “do something” before recess, will hand Barack Obama a political victory even when he is desperately weak.

A chaotic day on Capitol Hill began with a revolting tribute to Cantor. True to his destructive ideas to the last, Eric Cantor in his last speech talked about being the grandson of immigrants, repeated his call for school choice as a “civil rights” policy, and paid tribute to amnesty stalwarts John Boehner, Kevin McCarthy, and Paul Ryan. Members of both parties stood and applauded a man who, with his last House speech, proved he represented the Beltway Political Class instead of his own constituents.

But although the bipartisan Political Class began the day by closing ranks around Cantor, it was partisan politics that prevented John Boehner from honoring his erstwhile colleague by allowing more migrants into the country. His bill would have made things worse by

However, Boehner could not bring the bill to the floor--because he did not have the votes from either Republicans or Democrats.

Democrats are evidently hoping to blame Republicans for creating a so-called humanitarian crisis. An increasingly unhinged Nancy Pelosi called the bill a “statement of meanness,” arguing that the $659 million it laid out to cater to illegals is “not enough resources” to “feed the children.” [Nancy Pelosi: Republican Border Bill A ‘Statement of Meanness, by Charlie Spiering, Breitbart, July 31, 2014]

Such is the state of American statesmanship.

It’s almost redundant to add that these schoolyard taunts come at a time when the federal government is spending $74,000 a day to house 532 immigrants in “suites” complete with flat screen televisions...

Stop the Coming Obamnesty!

Luis Gutierrez

Rep. Luis Gutierrez: "I think the president’s going to act."

According to Rep. Luis Gutierrez, Obama intends "to act broadly and generously" on behalf of the "millions and millions" of illegal immigrants in the United States today.

Gutierrez, who meets often with the president, is implying that Obama, before Labor Day and by executive order, will grant de facto amnesty to five million illegal immigrants.

They will be granted work permits and permission to stay. With his pen and his phone, Obama will do what Congress has refused to do.

There is a precedent. Obama has already issued one executive order deferring the deportation of "dreamers," children brought into the United States illegally by their parents before 2007.

Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions is on to what is afoot. "We must prevent the president's massive amnesty from going forward," he says, and urges legislation to block an executive amnesty. But this divided Congress is not going to pass any such law. Nor would Obama sign it.

Still, would Obama dare deliberately ignite a nationwide firestorm by declaring an executive amnesty for 5 million illegal immigrants?

Why not? Consider the risks—and the potential rewards.

On the downside, an Obama amnesty would polarize the country, imperil red-state Democrats and cause even allies to conclude he had become a rogue president who adheres to the Constitution and rule of law only so far as they comport with his agenda.

And what is his agenda? As he has said: to transform America.

Obama wants history to rank him among the transformational

The “Trafficking” Law At The Border—The Real Loophole Is Obama

Never Trust a Liberal Over Three-Especially a Republican It's been reported everywhere—The New York Times, The Washington Post, Fox News—that the William Wilberforce Sex Trafficking Act requires that any non-Mexican children who show up on our border be admitted and given a hearing. (New York Times, July 7, 2014: "Immigrant Surge Rooted in Law to Curb Child Trafficking.")

The problem, we've been told, is that a loophole in the sex trafficking law mandates these hearings—or "removal proceedings."

But there is no such loophole.

The fact that people on both sides of the aisle are telling the same lie about this law is worrisome. Are Republicans being tricked into thinking we need an emergency bill, so that, two weeks later, we'll see them emerging from a conference, saying:

We fixed the loophole! We didn't get everything we wanted, but you can hear about that later.

No, tell me now.

Well, remember amnesty? It's kind of in this bill. But the headline is: We closed the loophole! So no more worries about that loophole. But yeah, amnesty passed.

Why else would everyone be carrying on about a non-existent loophole? I know they're mistaken because I read the law.

The Wilberforce law states, in relevant part:

"Any unaccompanied alien child sought to be removed by the Department of Homeland Security, except for an unaccompanied alien child from a contiguous country (i.e. Mexico—or Canada, so as not to sound discriminatory) ... shall be—placed in removal proceedings ... eligible for relief ... at no cost to the child and provided access to counsel."

Obviously, that's the whole ball of wax. Once a kid is in, given La Raza attorneys and a hearing date, he's never going home. No immigration judge is going to listen to a lawyer-manufactured sob story and say, "No, I'm sorry, that didn't touch my heart. You have to go back to Huehuetenango."

But the law's definition of "unaccompanied alien child" limits the hearings to kids who have no relatives in the United States. If your relatives live here, the law assumes you're not being sex-trafficked—you're trying to join them.

Here's the definition—note subsection (C)...

Refugees Enriching Pittsburgh’s Allegheny County

Foreign influx in Allegheny County at 'tipping point' reads the headline at the Pittsburgh Tribune.

As per the article (by Carl Prine [email him ], July 26, 2014), one in 14 Pittsburgh residents was born in another country. The foreign influx includes

Nearly 50% of the vibrant newcomers arrived since 2000, the Pittsburgh Tribune’s Prine reports, “paced by an influx of 6,059 war refugees and religious dissidents from 27 nations seeking sanctuary.”

Prine refrains from disclosing that such wars and religious dissidence usually involve one set of barbarians pitted against another set of barbarians in Africa or some Asian Muzland. We just have a preference for the victim barbarians: Sunni today...

Want a Real Anti-Poverty Plan? Stop Amnesty!

It is now all the fashionable rage in Washington, D.C., to proclaim solidarity with America's working poor in front of the cameras—while stabbing them in the back behind closed doors.

Privileged Illinois Democratic Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky and others have taken to Twitter, posting photos of themselves eating tuna sandwiches and buying Ramen noodles to show how much they empathize with minimum-wage workers. On the other side of the aisle, GOP Rep. Paul Ryan has wrapped himself in a cloak of compassion, putting a cheesy Taylor Swift hand heart around conservatism by proposing government "life coaches" for those in poverty.

Message: They care! Reality: They fake. The cognitive dissonance on Capitol Hill is so thick you need a V8-powered chainsaw to slice it.

While cynical politicians prattle on about protecting the American Dream, they're working together to destroy it. If these elected officials care so much about reducing poverty, why are they working so hard to import more of it from around the world? Leaders in both political parties have thrown struggling Americans under the bus to feed the cheap illegal alien labor machine.

The working poor are the biggest losers in D.C.'s amnesty game. U.S. Civil Rights Commissioner Peter Kirsanow has been a lonely voice warning about the impact of mass illegal immigration and perpetual amnesty on low-income black Americans. "The country's economic woes have disproportionately harmed African-Americans, especially those with little education," he warned this spring. "The economy has a glut of low-skilled workers, not a shortage," which is driving wages down.

Stagnant wages and depressed economic growth affect working poor Americans of all colors, while illegal alien amnesty beneficiaries cash in. Steve Camarota and Karen Ziegler of the Center for Immigration Studies reported...

Exactly As Predicted, Establishment GOPer Ed Gillespie Blowing VA Senate Race


Ed Gillespie / Mark Warner

Virginia GOP Senate candidate Ed Gillespie claimed he had “not seen” Ted Cruz’s bill to combat Obama’s Administrative Amnesty and declined to endorse it during his debate with Democratic Senator Mark Warner Saturday night. [Mark Warner on offense in Virginia Senate Debate, by James Hohmann, Politico, July 26, 2014] Typical: Ed Gillespie is a caricature of an Establishment Republican—former lobbyist, George W. Bush advisor, Republican National Committee head. Needless to say, offering voters a corporate cartoon at a time of national crisis isn’t working. Because the GOP has allowed the demographic transformation of Virginia, the only way Republicans can now succeed is by winning over working class white voters and increasing white turnout. But Gillespie can’t do it. He’s the latest example of the GOP Establishment’s dirty little secret: it’s terrible at winning elections.

How bad a candidate is Gillespie? Let us count the ways.

  • He’s never actually been elected to anything before – he’s simply a consultant, lobbyist, and political insider. As a result, his name recognition is terrible.
  • He’s being crushed in...
