The John And Ken Show Roils California`s Congressional Republicans


Talk radio is on the attack against cowardly
Republicans with the latest project of the

John and Ken Show
on Los Angeles` KFI 640 AM.


Popular
talk show hosts John Kobylt and Ken Chiampou
have started a campaign to oust from office a powerful,
yet-to-be determined Republican California Congressman.

Welcome to "Political
Human Sacrifice
radio game show with real life
consequences. Possible offerings include GOP House
heavyweights

David Dreier
and

Chris Cox.

The campaign was triggered by the
Bush administration stoppage of June`s interior
round-ups of illegals by the Border Patrol.

A

dozen officers from the Temecula Station
had rounded
up hundreds of aliens in Escondido, Corona and Norco and
sent them packing.

(Three
hundred citizens rallied in

support
of the Border Patrol)

Actual
enforcement obviously horrified the

nouveau slavery
crowd, the

business interests
working to reduce labor costs to
as close to zero as possible. And Mexican

revanchists
like Rep. Joe Baca [Video]
were also miffed. Baca marched into Under Secretary for
Border and Transportation Security Asa Hutchinson`s

office
to

demand
that the raids end.

And
they did.

John
and Ken wonder why no Republican Congressional
representative in southern California has a passion for
enforcement equal to Baca`s passion for illegals.

The
last straw was John Kobylt`s interview of Asa
Hutchinson. There had been reports that Hutchinson`s
staff couldn`t get any work done because of the

pro-enforcement
callers ringing up his office at
202-282-8077.

Hutchinson apparently thought he could quiet the torrent
of calls by presenting his standard public relations
riff.

The
uninterrupted 22-minute interview [Listen]
was a classic example of a political tapdance.
Hutchinson recited his department`s achievements (border
arrests,

Walmart busts
, etc.). But he refused to answer
direct questions about interior and workplace
enforcement.

John
demanded to know when the

illegal alien sweeps would resume:

"Why don`t you tell us that you will begin rounding
them upagain? Our listeners want to hear that the border
sweeps will continue…The reason people are angry in
Southern California is because the Bush Administration
and your department are not doing their jobs in
protecting us from the illegal alien invasion. It`s
costing California taxpayers over $5 billion dollars a
year. We have overcrowded schools, overcrowded
hospitals, overcrowded emergency rooms,

overcrowded freeways
. We have enormous problems and
we are getting zero help from the federal government."

Hutchinson tried to claim that the DHS was doing
something, but in fact, there`s no policing in the

workplace
or anywhere in the

interior
.

By
refusing to promise any interior enforcement,
Hutchinson infuriated Kobylt and his audience.

Out of
John and Ken`s frustration, a plan emerged: to choose a
big-name Republican who`s useless on illegal
immigration. Their goal is to vote that person out in
November.

Step
one was an online poll listing 13 Republicans in their
broadcast area.. Listeners could pick one Representative
to be axed.


The finalists were
: David Dreier , Chris Cox , Mary
Bono,  Darrell Issa , and  Dana Rohrabacher. John and
Ken announced that:

"In the next few weeks, we will invite each elected
official to prove to us why they should not be
`sacrificed.` We will be asking them to do various
tasks, with your input as well, to prove that they are
protecting California taxpayers from the illegal alien
takeover. Keep listening to John and Ken on KFI AM 640
from 3-7p, because the blue-blazered, Washington elite
are being exposed on the issue."

A
political death sentence coming from John and Ken is no
idle threat. Their show is the most popular in its time
slot and many listeners take action based on the what
they hear.

When
they posted Asa Hutchinson`s phone number, an annoyed
White House demanded that the two announcers

cease and desist
.

During
the
Gubernatorial Recall
last year,

John and Ken
 collected 4,000 signatures
against Gov. Gray Davis (ungenerously known as
"Gumby"
on the show) in four hours at an event in
Ontario, CA.

In
2002, they organized a campaign in which over 200,000
Orange County voters used write-in ballots in order to
defeat the re-election of suspected pedophile

Judge Ronald Kline
.

It`s
not hard to dump a useless Republican in California. A
switch of 20,000 to 40,000 votes in a district would
unseat even a very popular incumbent, and send a message
to the Republicans that immigration law must be
enforced.

Taking
down a big cheese like Dreier, Chairman of the powerful
Rules Committee, or Cox, Chairman of the House Policy
Committee, would be huge.

One of
the unlucky five,

Rep. Darrell Issa,
appeared on the show
[listen]
the day after the finalist`s names were
announced. Issa knows this is one election he doesn`t
want to win.

Tuesday July 27 was a memorable
double header, with two Congressmen appearing on the
show.

Cox
appeared at the 4 pm slot. He is a well known political
smoothie, practiced at double talk. Although his voting
record on immigration is good, he has climbed near the
top circle of Republican A-team leadership in the House
and is smart enough to know what they want. He
demonstrates neither passion nor strong leadership on
immigration.

The
hour was painful to hear [But
click


here
anyway
.] since Cox, as the Chair of
the Select Committee on Homeland Security, has the
responsibility to protect the country from

terrorists
and millions of alien Mexicans.

When
John and Ken brought up recent security breaches, like
the

disturbing case
of 14 Syrians with

expired visas
run amok on a Detroit-to-LA flight, or
 Rep. John Culberson`s warnings
[listen]
about al Qaeda men coming across the southern border
disguised as Mexicans,

Cox
admitted the system had failed. But he gave no
indication that genuine inland sweeps would resume.

John
Koblyt appeared near a brain explosion after an hour
with Cox`s pleasant evasions. He recalled how Cox had
been infuriating in past interviews for his lack of
passion and leadership and for general political
shuffling to avoid John and Ken`s pointed questions.

Rohrabacher followed during the next hour
[Listen].
He sounded more approachable, citing his leadership in
the House regarding illegal immigration. He reminded the
audience that he had gotten
threats of violence
because of his

bill
to collect money owed by indigent

foreigners
to American hospitals.. And Rohrabacher
gets it, saying about unrestricted illegal immigration,
"It`s destroying our country."

But a
disagreement quickly erupted over the $5+ billion it
costs California annually supply healthcare,

education
, housing and other public services to an

invading army.

Rohrabacher said the federal government shouldn`t be
seen as
paying for illegal immigration
and that such
payments would eventually set the subsidies in stone. (SCAAP
the State Criminal Alien Assistance Program, already
does exactly that.)



"Unfunded mandate,"
responded John and Ken,
loudly, citing the obvious irresponsibility of the feds
who dump the problem on border states.

In
different ways, both Congressional representatives
revealed the impervious Beltway mentality. The concept
of

government for the people
apparently weakens after
years in Congress.

And
the representatives` staffed and buffered lifestyles
keep them from hearing the real level of anger from
citizens about the invasion. Hour-long blasts of fury
from the constituent zone are surely a change in tone
from the ordinary Washington life of a Congressional
member.

To her
credit, Representative Mary Bono actually came to the
studio this Tuesday August 3
[listen]
and stayed for an extra hour
[listen]
to answer callers` questions. She touted the additional

federal healthcare dollars
she had helped legislate
for California, known as DiSH or

Disproportionate Share Hospital
 funds, to aid
institutions which are being overwhelmed by patients
unable to pay. But she made clear that she would not be
providing leadership against the underlying problem –
illegal immigration.

At
this writing, Rep. David Dreier, the listeners` first
choice for sacrifice, is resisting appearing on the
show.

As one
of the more energetic open borders supporters, he has
earned a lot of constituent anger. Stay tuned.

John
and Ken`s popularity lies in their focus on the

National Question
. And Southern California is

ground zero
.

Their
trademark is not simple anti-liberal ranting, but
precise, useful, targeted blame.

John
and Ken are pioneering a unique form of political
theater. Politicians get to make their case under heavy
duty questioning. Then they must face the consequences.

Around
Labor Day, the unfortunate Political Human Sacrifice
will be announced. From then until the election day of
doom, the loser will receive the pummeling from John and
Ken he or she deserves.

It`s
brilliant radio that keeps listeners tuning in and
burning up the call-in lines. 

With
government

undermining the nation`s immigration laws
and

sovereignty
, venues to activate citizens are more
important than ever.

Talk
radio, along with the Internet, is carrying this debate.
The Establishment Media won`t touch it.

VDARE.COM suggestion: after the election, John and Ken
should sacrifice a corporate co-conspirator with the

Treason Lobby
–  like, for example, First Data`s

Charlie Fote
