Weak GOP Leadership Giving in to Amnesty

250

In a turn of events so predictable that Helen Keller could have seen it coming, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is bowing before united Democratic opposition and a hostile press. After all the promises, all the hardline talk, and a midterm election that gave Republicans a clear mandate, it looks like the Department of Homeland Security will be funded in full. What’s even more hilarious about all of this (or depressing, depending on how you look at it), Democrats are rejecting his offer to give in!

“I’ve indicated to the Democratic leader that I’d be happy to have his cooperation to advance consideration of a clean DHS bill, which would carry us through September 30,” McConnell told reporters Tuesday. “With Democratic cooperation on a position they have been advocating for the last two months, we could have that vote very quickly.”

From the beginning of this debacle, Harry Reid’s minority has filibustered the House spending bill in hopes of getting a clean one that does not defund Obama’s executive order on amnesty. Yet now that McConnell is ready to break, it looks like the Democrats want more.

“The problem is everybody, I’m waiting to hear from the Speaker,” said Reid. “We have to make sure people understand the bicameral nature of this Congress that we serve in. So to have Sen. McConnell just pass the ball over to the House isn’t going to do the trick.”

So Democrats won’t stop filibustering until they get a promise from John Boehner that the House of Representatives can pass the clean bill. “We’re willing to debate anything they want dealing with immigration, after we fund homeland security,” Reid said.

That’s all well and good, but there’s not much to debate after Obama’s amnesty has been funded in whole. This was the only shot Republicans had. To use the congressional power of the purse and their majority to force Democrats to make a choice: national security or amnesty for illegals. It should have been a slam dunk. Because they have allowed Obama and the left to dominate the discussion, however, they backed themselves into a corner. Now, largely because the media has portrayed this story incorrectly, it looks like it’s Republicans sacrificing national security in the name of petty politics.

To save face, McConnell wants to hold a separate vote on legislation that would block Obama’s amnesty. Of course, there’s not one reason on earth that he would be able to win that vote. Even if he could push past Democratic filibuster (why stop now, considering how effective it proved to be?), it is doomed to die on the president’s desk. Forcing Obama to veto the DHS spending bill would be a major political victory. Forcing him to veto a block of his own amnesty is not.

A 26-state lawsuit now provides conservatives with their only glimmer of hope. Will we move forward into a brave new world where the executive branch is free to go around the law? Or will we restore the system of government that has served us well for more than 200 years? It’s up to the judicial branch now; the legislative branch has proven to be spineless.

    “….will we restore the system of government that has served us well for more than 200 years?….”

    The fact that millions of Constitutionalists are desperately trying to get back to that, in the hopes that it can save their “country” if the people try it again – after it completely failed on the first attempt – is a testament to the power, and the insanity, of the superstition of “authority.”

    The mythology surrounding the U.S. Constitution alleges that it served as a sort of contract between the people in general and their new “servants” in Congress.

    But there is not a shred of truth to that.

    One cannot, by signing a contract, bind someone else to an “agreement.” The idea that a few dozen white, male, wealthy landowners could enter an agreement on behalf of over two million other people is absurd. But the absurdity does not stop there. No contract can ever create a right held by none of the participants, which is what all “government” constitutions pretend to do. The form of the document makes it clear that it was not an actual contract, but an attempt to fabricate out of thin air the right to rule, however “limited” it was supposed to be.
    An actual agreement by contract is a fundamentally different thing from any document purporting to create a “government.”

        Why don’t you just try to think instead of writing nonsense, Gary ?

          It is not nonsense, but again since you four brain cells are working overtime…i will keep it short.

          I’m thinking? “I hope Karma gives you all you deserve, plus some!

      2. 1American1st says

        Watch the video. It’s interesting. He’s right, the government is a thief.

      3. hangem'high says

        If I had the money I would, but I’m a have not, a must remain where told while giving my money to the have’s!

          He’s not an idiot, he’s giving us some good advice!

      2. hangem'high says

        It could be an option depending what develops, I’ll wait to see what first shipload of Islamic, Muslims brings?

            Send me some money box 135 ice St. Anchorage Alaska, any little bit would help!

          2. Jimmy King says

            It would be easier for you to go to Russia than Mexico. Besides, you can probably see if from your living room

          3. hangem'high says

            Funny I never gave them much thought, that is if they don’t have a return policy but now that you mention it, it does gives me a second option, while giving me a little more time to abandon ship! Still feel free to donate to the cause.

      ISIS/ISIL wants you!

        ISIS/ISIL wants to kill every one of us, something Barry Soetero can’t seem to grasp, even though the military, CIA, etc. keeps explaining it to him.

    4. allen goldberg says

      You are dead wrong. But as a libtard, you live in fantasyland.

      1. 1American1st says

        Croco Dile speaks against the Libs in the video, especially about Welfare & big government.

      2. hangem'high says

        Apparently so does Washington DC, Hollywood, California, Washington St. Colorado, ect.
        The old world order is dead, “long live the KING!”

      “We the people” in progressives interoperation” You the Slave” another victory for the have’s and the have not’s Oh boy, internet neutrality, If you felt TV is full of propaganda commercials you pay a fortune to watch, can’t wait? the USA the worlds new Harlem! Enjoy you victory, couldn’t happen to a better bunch of loser’s, it only gets better from here!

    7. David says

      Croco Dile. It is not a contract between government and the people. It is an outline of how the government will operate. It assigns responsibility. The republic has not failed by any means. However there are millions of people and thousands of politicians that want it to fail and want it changed. Americans will not allow this country to fail, by any means. You are a real fool if you think otherwise..

    8. David says

      Ok, Ok the video is good however your posting is damn confusing. It actually take the reader in a different direction.

  2. walt says

    Why don’t we ask Mitch to lose a few pounds and put on shady shades and no -one will know the difference!

          It didn’t take long for small government to die in the progress of greed.
          Now if we can just figure out where the 18 trillion went?

    2. Greg137 says

      What did you expect by voting for these idiots in the primaries, these cowards should be primaried out.. Stop splitting your vbote in the primary and UNIFY THE CONSERVATIVE VOTE to thtrow these bums out!! Tell your congressman that tey should have back Louie Gomhert for Speaker, and Tell you seantors to stop electing Mcconnell as Senate Majority leader or you will replace him or her in the primaries!!

      1. Ralph Long says

        You folks need to bury the Congressional Offices in E-mails,Faxes,Telephone Calls and Letters and by personal visits to point this bunch of braindeads gets the message!

      2. draftsman69 says

        You saw what happened in Mississippi. The Rhino was whipped, yet black Democrats were allowed to affect the Republican primary. No Democrat should be voting in Republican primaries regardless of their race.

      3. juswonderin says

        AMEN, GARY!

  4. Curtis Jones Jr says

    I hope Karma beheads that worth bitch McConnell, he did exactly opposite of what he promised in his campaign. Where is a nut job with a gun when you need one. His sister Boehner, the spineless, is doing the same thing. Made promises to take control of Congress and undo the crap obama, Reid and Pelosi did, so what did he do…….He join them. This entire Congress and Administration is trying to cause a Revolution, bring back public hanging of public representives that commit TREASON

    1. esqualido says

      And if that were not bad enough, they are working hand in glove with the Dems to do a complete end-run around the Constitution with TPP. Better get on the horn and call them (the public supporters of this monstrosity are impossible to find in the MSM)

      1. Conservative says

        Get real, I send letters on every issue and receive nothing but a form letter response and of course, the one Democratic, old worn out Representative ALWAYS vote in opposition to what all my Republican friends and associates write and call their offices about. Too bad, we just don’t have millions to give to them to influence their vote.

    2. Lizard says

      I agree .. We all should get crew together and build fence around congress and lock all bastards up.. congress is not working in America favor they are doing everything in power to take america down so inact one world order

      1. Conservative says

        That is the ammunition Bernie Sanders is firing right now. Our Congress, both parties, are so far in cahoots with each other and the millionaire donors that they lost sight of who put them in office and they haven’t been working for their constituents for the decades they spent collecting their salaries and numerous fringe benefits.

    3. Ralph Long says

      Curtis Jones Jr do you need some donations for the hanging rope?

      1. james walls says

        Don’t worry about donations for the rope I will donate the rope

    4. Jimmy Wayne Barnett says

      I guess it shouldn’t have come as no surprise because we all knew he and the two spineless P.O.S would do what they have always done ,talk a tough and in the 4th ending throw the game they folded like scared little children,who held the power to stop this invasion of illegals who have no right to be here .I don’t believe there is a man or woman that had any intentions of keeping their word to the people that gave them what they ask for and each time these two cowards did what they do best,coward down to the left and surrendered to them without so much as an attempt to stop this amnesty.Now what will stop this amnesty ….well I can tell you it won’t be these spineless,jelly fish of what was promised and what wasn’t even an attempt at a good bluff.
      For the first time I fear that they are so corrupt that they will never get enough balls to even try again.Because they are weak minded bureaucrats ,that do not understand what was at stake.
      I pray some day we will have someone who is not be afraid of Obama and his ilk that,they will find just an ounce of courage to read their oath of office just once, and DO THE RIGHT THING!

      1. Angry American says

        Then start backing TEA party candidates, so far they have been doing the wishes of their constituents unfortunately there just isn’t enough of them. The reason the left has demonized them so much is they just don’t want anyone with the courage to stand up to them & the TEA party has done that so far & I expect them to continue

      2. Conservative says

        The Republicans have several nominees running that could turn this around if they could ever get any coverage that wasn’t blocked out by TRUMP. Oh well, it’s still early and hope runs eternal. I was taken in by Trump for a while, but it’s hard for me to understand his turn-around on Planned Parenthood.

    5. Robert Wilson says

      Why isn’t there a law that covers untruths? There should be one that covers person or persons that do not take their oath of office seriously. If the oath is ignored, YOU ARE AUTOMATICALLY OUT.

      1. draftsman69 says

        You are absolutely correct. Anyone found intentionally lying to the public or violating an oath of office should be removed from public service now and in the future.

      2. GaryP says

        Totally agree. If a Politician Lies to their constituents to gain or retain office…..automatic loss of position & possible Jail. Same for all of the lying un-elected Bureaucrats that pass anti-Constitutional laws at the request and for the gain of a Political Position. NULL & Void. The Elected official loses their position.

        1. Robert Wilson says

          Gary; This would inject some symblus of honesty, (However forced), into the system. The same should apply to the Supreme court Justices. We the people could vote for the justices also, and limit their term to four years. We should demand that this nation metamorphosis from a Republic to a TOTAL DEMOCRACY. Each vote would surely count during elections.

        2. Lizard says

          Only problem is Democrats get turned on when being lied to they love it

      3. nevergiveup says

        Out immediately!! They know the rules and they don’t need a second chance!! For sure need to oust the one with the pen & the phone.

      4. Conservative says

        There is a law, it is called perjury but unfortunately it is just now accepted that politicians lie and nothing is done about it. Obama should have been tried and convicted of perjury within three months from the time he took office. All the professional, career politicians from both parties just lie without never a wisp of conscious. We the people lie to ourselves iwhenwe believe they will change after being deceived for decades.

    6. GaryP says

      Totally Agree, they are no better than BO with empty lies. Stand UP to your promises or resign.

    7. George Cahonna says

      Rhino’s ..Selling out America..

    8. Conservative says

      I’m not for hanging but I sure endorse immediate IMPEACHMENT. Impeach Obama and the five Supremes that decimated the Constitution – followed by time in a federal prison.
      Boehner and McConnell are both either closet Democrats in heart and mind or just plain wimpy politicians who have no core beliefs they are willing to fight for.

  5. Gery Galarza says

    Our GOP elected officials are as useless as the rest of elected officials in WA. We don’t need to bother anymore going to the polls because we all know all to well that at the end of the day they will lie and betray us and dump us like yesterday’s garbage. Let’s vote their sorry … out of office.

    1. Evan says

      Seems as though you are CORRECT on this one! The GOP is as worthless
      to America as obama and his DEMOCRAPS! Be glad when all of them are
      gone forever! Looks like we WASTED our time last November! The Republicans
      are as SORRY as the DEMOCRAPS! BYE BYE AMERICA!

      1. Gery Galarza says

        You are correct

      2. Greg137 says

        PRIMARY THEM OUT!!

        1. Ralph Long says

          And/or Recall everyone of them that can be recalled in Congress forthwith!

          1. 1American1st says

            We need to start with the entire Democrat Socialist Party from obama all the way down to city council.

          2. Ralph Long says

            Hey you forgot Dogcatcher!

        2. draftsman69 says

          We need to remove the laws and rules that prevent most people from even attempting to run for office. General elections and primaries.

          1. Angry American says

            It actually comes down to money, most commoners do not have the funds to run for office & the parties will not support someone that will not toe the party line. It does happen a few times but not enough

    2. Greg137 says

      You are wrong in one respect, Sir.. Do not chasitize the fact that you went to the polls!! We can throw the liberals of both parties out! The Republicans can be thrown out in the primaries… The balme for electing Mcconnell lay in the fact that kentucky voters we too stupid and they split their vote in the proimaries… The Tea Party of kentucky chose to run 4 primary candidates against Mitch Mcconnell..which weaknened the vote against him.. We have too many idiots who never listen as to why they fail, so in essence we, get the candidates that we deserve… Obama wouldn’t even be in office if 4 million people bothered to show up at the polls. You need to stay involved… Even Romney would have been better than Obama.. Use your brain!!! The human species as a whole is acting like their brains are turned off It seems to be a natural state of of humanity as a whole, and it makes me ashamed of even being human… Boehner was only elected in the primaries, because the Tea Party split their vote three ways against him.. YOU CAN’T WIN WITH ONLY 1/3 or 1/4 OF THE VOTE!!! I wish the Tea party would listen to me… If they choose to act like washington democrats then they won’t last long at all.. Show up to the primaries find one candidate to REPL:ACE these Republican losers in the leadership and vote for them!!! Stop splitting your Conservative vote, and you will stop these weak moderates from gettinmg re-elected!!! Tell you congressman that you won’t be voting for them in the primary if they continue to to be led by these limp wristed cowards!!! GET INVOLED!!! If you don’ty show up to the ppolls you will never have an influence!!!

      1. dinkerduo says

        BUT THAT TAKES ANOTHER 6 YEARS—WE ARE STUCK WITH THESE AZZHOLES UNLESS WE TAKE AWAY THEIR POWER AS SPPEAKER OF THE HOUSE AND MAJORITY SPEAKER–BOEHNER AND MC CONNELL NEED THEIR POWER TAKEN AWAY—NOW!!! RECALL THEIR POSITIONS!!!

        1. Ralph Long says

          Amen! Fully Agree!

        2. Angry American says

          Boehner is speaker of the house & they are elected for 2 year terms, only the senate gets 6 years & president gets 4 years

      2. GaryP says

        Sort of agree. However the Liberal Media has made Tea Party look bad and they are totally PRO American Constitution, Balanced Budget, Term Limits, etc. They are Dems, Repubs, Blacks, Whites, Asians, Jews, Christians, Hispanics, white collar, blue collar, etc. Good Americans that have had it with the Lying bunch of “Good ol Bay” crooks in Politics. We need Term Limits to break the cycle. The Convention of States will make that happen.

        1. juswonderin says

          Ya know, the new Congress has only been in office for 2 or 3 months; in their defense; they need time to strategize; BUT to get McConnell & Boehner OUT AS FAST AS POSSIBLE!!!!! McCain & Graham & the likes need to go also! Get all of the old farts that’s been in office for anywhere from 4 to 15 of the ESTABLISHED officials OUT! Just my own humble opinion

          1. GaryP says

            Agree! What I call the “Good ol Boys” clubs of both parties. I think the real way to dump them is Term Limits and that will only happen with the Convention of States. They will NEVER Vote themselves out via Term Limits.

    3. DaveM says

      Better…..replace all of them and put things the way it should be ….REVOLUTION IS THE ONLY ANSWER!

      1. GaryP says

        Convention of States is a non Violent way to Fix the Problems of the current in office greedy crooks of both parties that are leaches on out Tax dollars. Promote it to your States.

  6. John McGowan says

    Congressman Trey Gowdy summed it up the last day or so. He said if you allow Obama to get away with breaking the law that there is no end. We need more Congressmen Like him.

    1. Evan says

      DITTO!

  7. Conservative says

    It looks like McConnell has turned the gavel over to Reid…..So much for his getting back to Regular Order. Hey McConnell, you just can’t be fair when you are dealing with corruption. Please just go home.

    1. Ralph Long says

      Mitch McConnell is very rapidly becoming the new Benedict Arnold of the 21st Century!

  8. R Jeffrey Savlov says

    I’ve said it many times long before the mid terms. Mitch McConnell is not strong enough to lead and neither is John Boehner. They should both be removed from their posts as majority leaders and replaced with real leaders, those strong enough to shout loud enough that the media can’t help but report the truth. If Boehner were smart, he should tow the line and force the senate Democrats to back down or take the hit for putting illegal immigration above national security. He should use his bully pulpit to tell the American people the facts of life, that not passing this “clean budget” will not shut down DHS but reduce it slightly until the budget has been passed and those who are working will get their pay once the Democrats get off their high horse and do what is right for this nation.

  9. bygeorge says

    GOP, Save yourselves! The Party has been taken over by incompetent weaklings.

    Headline: Pathetic, Senate GOP Surrenders in DHS Funding/Executive Amnesty Fight…. Guy Benson. The headline should really read: Harry Reid still leads the Senate.

    To quote a famous line from the movie Cool Hand Luke: “What we have here is a failure to communicate!” Obviously, one side isn’t listening. Americans communicated very clearly their demands last November to repeal Obamacare, stop illegal amnesty and stop or obstruct every other illegal act the Marxist, Obama is doing to kill America.

    Did we not just deliver both houses of Congress into Republican Hands? Was that a terrible mistake? No, I don’t think so! Actually we sent enough good, new GOP conservatives sent up there to do exactly what the voters sent them up there to do, seize control of our government and pull it back from the abyss. It’s the GOP Leadership that didn’t get the message and that problem could be rectified immediately. We won! Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi got booted! We Won! What word don’t they understand?

    So, why the problem? Well, it’s who qualifies! Party leadership should not, repeat, NOT, rest on seniority, but on the merits of competency. If either Boehner or McConnell were infantry generals, they would have already destroyed the fighting ability of their troops simply by their incompetence. They don’t know how to fight! We need leaders who do!

    Harry Reid won his battles while our side cringed in fear of media criticism, called him names, complained he wasn’t following the rules but raised the white flag of capitulation none-the-less. McConnell and Boehner were trained to believe that way so they see no other path to move GOP principles forward than to give up. When Harry was in charge, he either ignored or changed the rules to screw our side further and, he always won.

    The new bunch of conservatives up there, right now, should caucus and take immediate action, by coup if necessary, to remove both those old feckless, cowardly, incompetent RiNO leaders and replace them with a leadership not afraid to do combat. It’s time to put the Democrats on the defense. Make the democrats defend why their government is failing in all areas. Make the Democrats defend their Marxist economic policies. Make the Democrats take a stand on why our black population is still enslaved to government dependency. Make the Democrats explain why they think it’s important to have millions of illegal aliens flooding into our country bringing with them their all culture of crime, disease and poverty. Make them defend everything.

    Amnesty, or rather the refusal to address the illegal immigrant amnesty problem, will be the one issue that will make the GOP forever irrelevant. Boehner and McConnell, slaves as they seem to be to the big money sources and the National Chamber of Commerce, will be held responsible. Make November 2014 stand for something. Make it a milestone to the reversal of America’s unhappy experiment with communism.

    1. hangem'high says

      We only need to go down this road to see what awaits us, nothing good for the citizen, when the cards are stacked!

    2. Ralph Long says

      Amen! Bravo! Great Post and Well Said!

  10. Dwight Mart says

    Mitch McConnell turns out to be a true politician! He will lie or say anything to get elected! Mitch is not for the people, Mitch is for Mitch and doing the opposite of what he promised if elected. Enjoy your time Mitch you will not be re-elected! We are sick of people like you. Turn coat, traitor, spineless, and a disgrace to the Republican Party and to those who put you in office by believing you were a man of you words! Congratulations for your new pitiful position as the Obama administration puppet. You have brought shame to the name Mitch McConnell. What is the difference between Mitch and Boehner? Nothing but age.

    1. hangem'high says

      Progressives are not only running as Democrates but Republicans, Independents, and yes even as Tea party, but usually run as Tea Party to only make them look loony!

      1. Ralph Long says

        hangem’high face it frankly the Tea Party not only looks loony! If it looks like a duck,walks like a duck and quacks like a duck then 9 out of 10 times it’s a duck!

          What’s Eric Holder got to do with the tea party?

      Dwight Mart your definition of Chinless Mitch McConnell can also easily be fully applied to the

      You got it right on the nail head!

  11. 1American1st says

    Funding Obama/Democrat Socialist Party Amnesty/Immigration Reform is the biggest mistake Republicans could make, putting their political careers on the line.

    The majority of Americans DO NOT want Amnesty/Immigration Reform. PERIOD!

    Liberal Democrat Socialist Party propaganda tries to spin the lie that Americans want these millions or tens of millions of Illegals to become citizens. Corrupt Dems who have embraced Illegal Alien LOBBYISTS want Amnesty & Immigration Reform, NOT American Citizens.

    This is one of the biggest issues of my lifetime & it needs to be resolved by ENFORCING OUR LAWS. We already admit nearly 1 million foreigners to the USA through legal immigration annually. That is enough!

    1. hangem'high says

      This has been happening over the last sixty years wat’cha going to do, write Mich,maybe send him 25 to 500 dollars for his next campaign ?

      1. 1American1st says

        Nope. I want a true Conservative on the 2016 ticket, someone who actually listens to Americans. I realize that the GOP has probably already “selected” one of their cronies for the 2016 ticket, but make no mistake, We The People” will be up in arms if they run a RINO.

        We need someone like Jim Bridenstine and/or Scott Walker.

        1. hangem'high says

          True, I guess we can pray and hope I just don’t see it, to many Americans asleep or in a comma. It’ll take a major catastrophe event to open their eyes.
          2016 seems like a long way off to look forward to more of the same!

    2. Ralph Long says

      Fully agree with you 1stAmerican1st and hangem’high!

  12. Gery Galarza says

    Makes me wonder, do the GOP expect these illegal immigrants to vote for them now? They should know that these illegal immigrants are un-registered democrat voter and now they will become registered democrat voters. How stupid are they?

  13. MILES E DRAKE says

    There seems little doubt now that we are already a “presidential republic” like the ones Obama or Soetoro or whatever his name really is observed growing up in Kenya or attending madrassah in Indonesia. If the regime succeeds in putting the Red Queen in power, we will have the usual African system where a strong man (or woman, or perhaps both) gets into power by hook or crook, usually crook, and stays there until forced out by a revolution. It does not appear that congressional Republicans are able or willing prevent this, so citizens who do not wish to be subjects need to consider emigration, resistance or secession and partition.

  14. Diane Brenner says

    This is sickening. I don’t even even have words to express my feelings. I truly feel that by 2016 we’ll all be attending the funeral of our once great Country.

    1. 1American1st says

      Diane –

      You took the words right out of my mouth. “This is sickening”.

    2. David says

      If that is true the only choice left is to roll over and accept it or take matters into our own hands. As for me, I will not roll over. I will not live under socialist / Muslim rule without a fight.

  15. william g munson says

    If they do cave in that means they are Democrats running under Republician name only and Lying

    1. Ralph Long says

      Bingo! The current crop of so-called Republicans in Congress could also be called “Nutty Nancy Pelosi Fools”…RIP Republican Party 2016! Bye Bye GOP!

  16. Bob Freeman says

    I am leaving the Republican Party if the Republicans cave, since when does government fund illegal activities. such as the Executive amnesty on immigration. I have seen a lot since this corrupt Obama Administration has been in power, but I have failed to see a Republican backbone. Republicans organized and raised money to stop the Obama administration from ruining this Country, and the Republican Party leaders are scared of the way the liberal press will portray them. if Obama ignores funding for DHS, because Republicans and some Democrats chose not to fund the illegal activities of this President . News Flash Republicans: They liberal media hate Republicans anyway . There appears to be no difference in the parties, and no will to impeach Obama for his incompetence. God Bless America, .

    1. Greg137 says

      That isn’t the answer they need to be replace at the primary!! Splitting the party will lead us to defeat.. USE YOUR BRAIN, SIR!!

      1. jaybird says

        There is a party that started in 2005 that wants to put a Conservative on the ticket in 2016. check http://www.afr.org and read their Mission Statement, if you have questions they will respond, I had questions and they answered. We need to find someone to support because the Republican Party has gone to the Dogs!

      2. draftsman69 says

        If enough conservatives moved all at once to a quote “conservative” party, it could make a difference. You would have to really push to do it all at once. A slow process would be ineffective.

    2. Ralph Long says

      Bob Freeman heck I left the GOP many years ago myself!

    3. draftsman69 says

      I wish there was a major effort to organize a conservative party. The constitution parts has done this to a degree but they don’t seem to be pushing hard enough to gain a wider public recognition.

    4. juswonderin says

      Bob, there are a few good men left to help this along, but those that’s been in office for years & years should be put out to pasture! I think if we had enough candidates that are NOT of the establishment Repubs, we would have a better Congress & Senate. Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, Scott Walker, Trey Gowdy, Rand Paul & maybe Marco Rubio would have a much better form of gov’t, in my opinion. It’s only been a couple or three months since they took their office & they’ve been shot down not only by McConnell & Boehner, but by other RINOS in the party!!! They MUST UNITE somehow to get anything done or they will completely fail in everything!

  17. adrianvance says

    I am actually beginning to think Allison Lundegren Grimes would have been a better choice as her election would have sent a message to all the RINOs who are terminal envy of the Democraitcs and what they get away with.

    Google “Two Minute Conservative” for clarity.

    1. Greg137 says

      You need to REPLACE these clowns in the PRIMARY and next time don’t split your vote against them… THAT IS HOW BOEHNER AND MCCONNELL GOT RE-ELECTED IN THE PRIMARY!!

  18. chief1937 says

    Well folks it looks like we have made another mistake by giving republicans the majority. It seems we have in fact only elected more limp wrist-ed (worst than democrats) republicans who do not know how to use the authority that has been given them. Would someone please tell me the difference in the two parties anymore? I know there is the threat of a government shut down but so what?

    1. Ralph Long says

      chief the only difference is they each use a different initial after their name and that’s it!

  19. Jerry Cox says

    McConnell should have lost his election. Anyone that knew him, knew he was a RINO and did not have that fight in him. We saw it coming when he declared early on he would let the Government default. It appears the only leverage is with the purse which we hold. Get some guts even if you think you will lose next time around. For if we lose we know our country is doomed anyway. Might as well go out fighting with you last breath. You have such great retirement packages you will not be in the soup lines.

  20. Vic Mariano Sr. says

    I’m afraid I have to agree with most posts that I’ve read . American Taxpayers were BETRAYED by the “GOP” leaders, whether it was one or all. Illegals will be GIVEN everything they have no rights to !! Boys , may as well pack up and go home , your jobs are now non existant ; YOU may now kiss your King’s ring !!!! How disappointing.

    1. Jimmy King says

      Your jobs are now non existant? If your job could be taken away by uneducated, non english speaking immigrant, you have got bigger problems than immigration

      1. 1American1st says

        Illegals aren’t coming here to clean motel rooms or pick fruit. That is Liberal propaganda!

        Illegals come here & live on our welfare system(s) while their kids are educated for FREE by American taxpayers. Those kids sit beside our kids in school, receiving the exact same education as our kids, so when they graduate they can compete with our kids for jobs.

        They are just waiting for Immigration Reform so they can get on that short path to citizenship. You think we have an employment problem now? Wait until an IR bill is passed & Affirmative Action for Illegals goes into full swing.

        Why are there so many Illegal Alien LOBBYISTS? Where are the Lobbyists for the American Citizens? Our “LOBBYISTS” are supposed to be in DC (District of Corruption), protecting us. We hired some new ones in November. Where are they?!?

        1. Jimmy King says

          Koreans come to the Cities. Buy Groceries. The entire family works their asses off and the kids get Straight A’s and add to the fabric of your great nation.

          So build the wall

          1. 1American1st says

            If they come here legally that’s fine. If they come here illegally then they need to go home & I don’t give a ratsazz what country they came from.

            The USA is not the “Welfare State” of the world. If they’ve got problems with THEIR homeland then they need to fix THEIR homeland.

          2. Jimmy King says

            If you lived in a lawless country, controlled by drug cartels, you’d want to go someplace where it is safe to raise a family too. “Fix their homeland” is a cute catch phrase, but it is entirely unrealistic. Tell you what, why don’t you fix everything that’s wrong in Washington, while they fix Mexico. So how easy you find it

          3. 1American1st says

            We are trying to fix Washington by trying to get owacko impeached. Most worthless, Racist prez ever.

          4. Jimmy King says

            Typing on some 1/2 assed right wing web site is not trying to get someone impeached And nobody in Washington, or with any serious credibility is trying to get him impeached. The blow hards on here talk a good game, but that’s all it is At the end of the day it will be Jeb v Hilary and the bunch of you furiously typing away. Getting nothing done but getting each other worked up

          5. 1American1st says

            So why are you on this site, jerk? Why aren’t you posting your worthless comments on Huffy Puffy?

          6. Jimmy King says

            Same reason you’re here, to impeach Obama and to make peace in the middle east, and to save the second amendment

            But also to laugh at all the idiots on here who don’t believe in science, but instead believe in a magic man in the sky who is going to make everything great in the end as long as you give your money to the church and hate gay people with all your might

          7. 1American1st says

            You sound like a DemonRat in disguise.

          8. Diane Brenner says

            Our country is failing BECAUSE people like you don’t understand that it was God who made this country great until the people like you told him he wasn’t needed or wanted any more.

          9. Ralph Long says

            LOL Sad but true!

          10. Diane Brenner says

            Unfortunately we ARE now living in a lawless country thanks to Obama.

          11. Jimmy King says

            See 1American…I’m on here to read the crazy posts from people like Ms Brenner Who thinks we have no laws

          12. 1American1st says

            Ms Brenner is fine. You Liberal jerkoffs who support the most lawless, Racist, inept, economically-challenged, enemy-loving and Illegal foreigner-loving prez to ever set foot in our WH disgust me.

            At least 26 states have some common sense & have joined a lawsuit against obama’s Illegal Amnesty:

          20. Joseph C Moore USN Ret says

            Try sneaking across the Mexican border.

          21. Ralph Long says

            Yeppers Joseph C Moore USN Ret thank you fof your service and I would tend to fully agree with you here that is if you meant across the Southern Border of Mexico!

          22. Joseph C Moore USN Ret says

            Yes!, Yea! Yes!

          23. Ralph Long says

            Amen! Amen! Amen!

          24. Ralph Long says

            The Koreans are very hard working folks along with other Asians and totally unlike
            Obama ‘s Illegal Alien Hispanics as well.

          25. 1American1st says

            That’s fine IF THEY COME HERE LEGALLY. It’s all about our laws. We have Immigration laws that already permit nearly 1 million foreigners into our country annually. That is enough.

        2. Ralph Long says

          Amen! In my Sunnyslope area of Phoenix AZ I seldom see anything except costly brand new expensive pick ups and cars all driven by illegal aliens with loud music constantly blaring 24/7 and Phoenix New Police Chief Joe Yardbird Yarner and his pitiful excuses for Phoenix Cops hide in back alleys afraid to do their jobs!

          1. 1American1st says

            Maybe he needs some Sheriff Joe Arpaio training.

          2. Ralph Long says

            Good One 1American1st Sheriff Joe and his MCSO deputies might make a man out of him however knowning Sheriff Joe like I do,the Good Sheriff might just drop
            him off on the Mexican side of the US/Mexico Border and say,Bye Bye Amigo!

      2. Joseph C Moore USN Ret says

        The illegals are not “immigrants” since they have not taken legal steps to immigrate. They are alien invaders, criminals, law breakers and should be IMMEDIATELY taken back to the border with notice that to return will mean being shot.

        1. Ralph Long says

          Bingo! Illegal Aliens are people that entered the USA ILLEGALLY! So,now what part of ILLEGAL don’t some of you understand?

          1. 1American1st says

            The Illegal Alien in our WH doesn’t seem to comprehend the word “Illegal”. He & Holder need to be arrested for breaking our laws!

          2. Ralph Long says

            Hanged would be okay by me!

    2. Greg137 says

      The GOP leaders are really Democrat party infiltrators.. These pukes CAN be forced to Retire! Vote them out in the primary, and be sure to tell your congressman that you will replace them at the primaries if they keep votiing for these WEAK COWARDLY OLD MEN… Demand a secret ballot and urge your congressman to remove these cowards in the leadership..

  21. Rob Premo says

    And this is why I belong to the TEA Party everyone. The RINO leadership in congress might as well be fucking democrats themselves. Just fucking hand America over to the progressives Boehner and McConnell, you might as well. It’s time to put Jeffersons quotes into action people…: Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. I do not add ‘within the limits of the law’ because law is often but the tyrant’s will, and always so when it violates the rights of the individual.
    Thomas JeffersonAnd…:The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.

    1. Greg137 says

      Tea Party needs to stop splitting their votes in the primaries!

      1. 1American1st says

        Greg –

        And Republicans need to stop running RINOs in the primaries.

        I think Republicans ran a large field of candidates in the SC primary to keep that Illegal Alien lover, Lindsey Graham, in office. I would never vote for that fool again, but the vote was spit by too many candidates & now we’re stuck with azz again. Truly disappointed.

      2. Rob Premo says

        I know, but the problem is that every time someone votes for an independant or someone who isn’t straight up republican, it gives that many more votes to a liberal dem. Now we have a bunch of nutless RINOs as a majority, who might just as well be obamas cock polishers. I’m starting to think that our entire representative field, republican and democrat, want to turn this country into a third world nation with everyone fighting each other. I guess if they can accomplish that, then they can keep their own interests, bank accounts, and famillies safe in their gaurded communities while us peons kill each other. This shit makes me fucking livid, and their isn’t a GD thing I can do about it until the next elections when I get to vote again.

  22. 1American1st says

    Which is the bigger threat?

    A. Letting DHS shut down, which isn’t doing their job anyway by allowing millions of Illegals to remain in the USA and letting them enter our country at will, including hundreds of thousands of criminals & how many unidentified terrorists plus releasing Illegal Alien criminals from jail, including child molesters, rapists, murders, thieves back onto American streets to resume their criminal crime sprees instead of deporting them?

    B. Stopping millions of Illegals, including criminals & terrorists, from illegal Amnesty?

    Our politicians need to be addressing the real issues when it comes to Illegal Aliens:
    – Build the fence
    – Deport every Illegal (1-way tickets are cheaper than supporting millions of them)
    – Stop all foreign aid to any foreign country who refuses to take their Illegal Invaders back

  23. David says

    The fact is that the GOP is just the reverse side of the same coin. The DFL is hell bent on destroying the country and the GOP will not do anything to stop them. I am a Conservative American and vote GOP as theoretically the lessor of 2 evils. I will never vote for a democrat but I am not republican. The RNC is a worthless organization and will never endorse a candidate that is true to Conservative values. Trying to take back our country from within the system is only prolonging the eventual takeover by the socialists.

  24. Greg137 says

    WE have way too many idiots on our side.. The IDIOTS of OHIO, and KENTUCKY gave us a bunch of democrats in disguise… TEA PARTY STOP SPLITTING YOUR VOTES IN THE PRIMARIES!!! Contact YOUR CONGRESSMAN TELL THEM TO USE THE SECRET BALLOT DEMAND A NEW HOUSE SPEAKER, AND THEN CONTACT YOUR SENATOR AND TELL THEM TO GET RID OF MCCONNELL AS SENATE MAJORITY LEADER!!!

    1. Karin Murray says

      I second this!

  25. Peter B. Duran says

    The GOP leadership is not listen to the party constituency . They are giving up to Obama. The confirmation of o Lynch as Attorney General. Now on the Executive Action. On Obama care. Is there any more shits they can go along with Obama or are they ignoring the mandate of the people.

    1. Diane Brenner says

      The only people who count to them anymore are those that line their pockets.

      1. 1American1st says

        Have you ever heard of Jim Bridenstine?

        He is a 100% American Conservative. He doesn’t care what Dems or Republicans think, he only cares about what American Citizens think. He is so refreshing & should be a role model to every Republican (and Dem) in DC.

        Follow him on Facebook. You will be amazed.

        I’m don’t live in Oklahoma, but I would give my eye teeth to have a representative like him. He needs to be on our 2016 ticket for prez!

        Bridenstine & Walker would make a great ticket.

        https://www.facebook.com/CongressmanJimBridenstine

        1. Diane Brenner says

          There are most likely a great many people out there who would make a great president, however, because of the way our politics work, you’ll never see their names on a ballot. The cost of running for office is actually sinful but at present it’s the only way candidates get into office.

  26. Lucilla says

    I just cannot believe everyone is blaming congress for the shut down. No one is saying Obama is chosing illegals over our homeland security! Obama does not love America! Why isn’t congress speaking out! instead they talk in riddles. How is this happening. I am sick to my stomach. I can’t read about this anymore. Why aren’t true American’s protesting against Obama!

    1. 1American1st says

      Lucilla –

      We are & have been protesting agains obama for 6+ years but it has fallen on deaf ears. He circumvents our laws & nothing is done. Republicans used to say that the Dems controlled the Senate so impeachment wouldn’t pass. No excuse now, but they aren’t doing anything to stop this lawless dictator. Disgusting!

      1. Lucilla says

        We need to gather in front of the White House. Millions of us. I know of many that feel the same as I but no one speaks up. If we do not make noise just like the illegals are, then this country is lost.

        1. 1American1st says

          Hell, I know 2 life long Dems who are so disgusted with obama & the DemonRat Socialist Party that they have changed to the Republican Party. These were staunch, diehard Dems who voted for owacko in ’08, but saw the damage he & the Dems have done to America. Both voted for Romney in ’12.

          1. Ralph Long says

            So, anyone still cannot figure why the GOP/Tea Party lost the 2008 and 2012 Presidential Elections by now?…Does the name Weird Willard Mittens Romney happen to ring a bell here?

          2. 1American1st says

            That wasn’t the problem. Romney would have been a thousand times better than the Muslim lover in our WH now.

            70,000+ Conservative voters filed complaints after the elections about the voting machines defaulting to obama. That’s only the ones who caught it.

            I will never forget a post from an Ohio resident who said they voted for Romney but the next morning their district reported ZERO votes for Romney.

            We need to go back to paper ballots & have the military count them since Democrats absolutely can NOT be trusted, proven time after time after time.

          3. Ralph Long says

            Don’t me too sure of that as after every time Weird Willard Mittens Romney ran for President the voters told Willard NO we donot want you as President and stay the Hell away from the White House as well you phony baloney!

          4. 1American1st says

            So, Ralph, you prefer obama? I hope you’re smarter than that?

            My dog would make a better prez than barack HUSSEIN obama.

          5. Ralph Long says

            1American1st Nope in fact neither the GOP aka Goofy Old Party nor the Nancy Pelosi Dimwit Democrats interest me enough to go vote in 2016. Oh by the Kenyan Wonder Golfer in Chief Barack Hussein Obama is not running in 2016 as Obama has already had his 2 Terms dumb butt!

          6. Ralph Long says

            I call BS since the voters say very clearly NO to weird Willard Mittens Romney and that alone clearly proves the voters do not trust Romney anymore then they trust Barack Hussein Obama!

        2. Diane Brenner says

          You just echoed my thoughts. I’m too old to put together such a rally, but I’d gladly join in on one.

  27. Karin Murray says

    Why on earth are the Republicans backing down? They have been elected to represent the USA, not self interests. We the people need to end this amnesty crap once and for all. Send them home! Get a set and repeal Nobamacare. Fight for the 2nd Ammendment rights of the people. Quit allowing this Muslim, self serving yahoo to change our country. The Constitution is the Constitution. Funny how it has worked for 239 years. Back off Obama! Obama, Clinton, Reid, Pelosi, Holder, and all the other screw ups need to be impeached. Why are the DC cronnies all sitting on their collective butts and doing nothing? Remember Benghazi? Do we all need to meet in Washington to protest these idiots? Wow can you imagine millions of God Fearing Americans in Washington DC? I don’t care if bacon offends you. I don’t care you want all the items written in Spanish. This is the USA, the language is English, LEARN it!

    In order to become a citizen of my country, you need to study our History, Consitution, and most of all, Learn conversational English! I am sick and tired of having to press #2 for English.

    I am tired of speaking to people in India, and all the 3rd world countries which are given our customer service jobs. I hate trying to figure out what they are saying.

    The republicans need to put on their big boy/girl pants and act like they are protecting us!

    I don’t care what you want, if you are not an American, you have no say. You knew what we were about when you came here. We are not here to accommodate your homeland ways. If you love it so much, then go back!

    I strongly object to all these Muslims being put in positions in our government. Chances are like Nobama, they are not citizens either. Grow a set Congress! Stand up for God, Country and Families.

    If One nation under God offends you, I don’t carre. If In God we trust bugs you, guess what I don’t care! If you are against a BLT, yup your right, I DON’T CARE!!

    1. 1American1st says

      Great post, Karin, and I agree!

      1. Ralph Long says

        Amen and thank you Karin very well said!

    Thanks! Mitch(Harry Reid’s brother)for all the promises and lies……I’m sure Kentucky is so proud of you…Turncoat….

  30. Roger says

    I am once again very disappointed with the OLD guard cowardly Republicans. 71 %
    of the people surveyed wanted to remove John Boehner, he is still there. Mitch McConnell
    to me as always seemed to back down and I will not support Rand Paul,as he
    endorsed this individual. A lot of the tea party people we got in 2010 and 2012
    got corrupted by the system.

    It seems no matter what party is in power, the legal people in America have no
    representation. I do have hope for Scott Walker and a few others, not Bush. It
    is unclear who ever gets in as president, if the GOP congress, will have the
    intestinal fortitude (Guts) to support a conservative or any presidential
    candidate. We desperately need a third party that’s not corrupted or self
    serving to serve the legal people of the USA.

    How come the fast majority of Politicians lie? most of them know they are going to
    break their oath of office before they get in, they don’t support enforcing the laws of the land, Illegal immigrants for one example,
    or (Protecting all Americans agains all enimies both Foriegn and domestic). In
    Fact Obama and Holder who both seem more anti American to me, have stopped
    honorable people from living up to the oath they took, Police, Boarder Security,
    law enforcement in general and our Military. These people have a lot more honor
    than our supposed leaders.

    What surprises me is that anyone is surprised by this. There are just about as many socialists in the Republican party as in the Democrats. It isn’t about political parties any more, It’s about who is a socialist and who is a Constitutionalist. The country elected who they thought would get us on the right path but they voted blindly. How many of you took the time to look up your Senators or Congresspersons voting record and political history? It only takes perhaps 20 or 30 minutes isn’t that time worth it to make an informed choice? But you didn’t check up on them did you? No you just listened to their rhetoric and believed it. Come 2016 you will all do it again and vote for some career snake oil salesman.

  32. banjojack says

    So why are you surprised? I said from the beginning that Mitch “Obama’s Spineless Bitch” McConnell would sell us out. Between him and Boehner, we have a de facto one party system. This precious pair are firmly in Obama’s pocket. Not to mention the US Chamber of Commerce, which favors amnesty also, and donates heavily to both of these duplicitous cowards. They are more worried about losing their princely lifestyles than about the incalculable damage they are doing to the United States of America. They are far more worried about losing their place at the taxpayer funded trough for hogs and whores.known as Congress.

  33. David says

    HOW does the GOP justify funding a program, even as part of Homeland security, that has already been ruled on as illegal in US District Court? I’m lost. How can this even be considered now for approval by either party? It is legally dead unless overturned on appeal. WTF, Congress is approving a budget based on the possibility that a higher court might overturn the decision? If it is not overturned and the budget approved do they just ignore the decision and push on.

  34. daveveselenak says

    Whew, that pic of ‘Turkey Neck’ Bitch McConnell says it all: he looks terrorified, what does he know? The ‘Re-PUNK-licans’ are part of the problem!

    It is tragic, Rudy got crucified for even mentioning our Muslim-Marxist jihadist’s communist upbringing. Well, I wonder what his state-run, fifth column media would have to say about Rick Wiles of TRUNEWS describing him as a full blown communist as most of ‘US’ out here know and a few brave souls in the Christian media are not afraid to report. I urge you to go to this site to hear the hair raising truth about this half-black communist’s agenda. This is what we would be hearing if we had a free press! Yes, REVOLUTION will be the SOLUTION!

    Obama took control of the Internet today and banned the sale of M855 “green tip” ammo. Rick warns that Obama is now acting like a “dictator in perpetuity.” Baptist Pastor Dr. Robert Jeffress discusses the Countdown to Apocalypse.

  35. william russell says

    This is a 52 year republican and i have voted and donated to republicans all these years but i am finished with the republicans especially the leadership boehner and mcConnel. They talk a good game, promise this and that, however once elected they will not walk the talk. They have continue to allow the democrats and obama to run things. We gave the senate to the republicans to stop obama and his policies and nothing happens. They have no back bone or guts or willing to fight because they have their cushy jobs, money and perks. If mc connel had a backbone, he would do what reid did to get obama’s nominations through by putting in the nuclear option method and go ahead and pass things with 51 votes and let the democrats be dammed. The republicans have done nothing since taking over and that is a disgrace. The democrats passed the control of the internet, 5-10 million illegals will take jobs from naturAL born citizens, the tax payers will be giving them social security, free education, past tax refunds, health care welfare food stamps and etc. Like i said i am finished with the republicans and i can state it right now the democrats will take back the senate and maybe the house and a presidency because all the people voted republicans feel betrayed and will not be fooled a second time. I hope you Priegus, boehman, and mc connel happy for what you have done, just a total betray and disgrace.

  36. drattastic says

    Has there ever been a more spineless lot ?

  37. onefour says

    I now call the Republicans that keep caving members of the Spelunker Party. That includes McConnell, Boehner and of course it’s headed by Privius. By the way I thought McConnell was the Senate Majority Leader but all hear is the edicts coming from Reid. Too bad those that voted back into the Senate don’t have a recall vote or at least the Senate vote to unseat him from the Senate Majority Leader since he is totally worthless.

  38. TPS12 says

    The voters gave you the win and all you do is waste it more of you must be replaced this is why we need term limits you lifers are worthless.

  39. Morton212 says

    They could have debated Immigration reform – but decided to do nothing except complain and hiss that Obama was behaving ‘unconstitutionally’. No one really believes that excuse but sees the Republican members as basically incompetent. The extreme right wing base sees them as gutless – the Democrats see them as disorganized and self interested. Either way they cannot govern.

    1. 1American1st says

      Says you…

      1. Morton212 says

        Yes, and every political pundit from both sides would reflect what I said. It is telling that the conservative pundits use words like ‘disappointed’ with Boehner and McConnell. That is an understatement.

      PROBLEM: Unauthorized visitors

      DEFINITION: Unauthorized visitors are
      those persons who enter a country without legal authorization and those who
      overstay their authorized period.

      CAUSES, REASONS, AND PROVENANCE: The main reason for
      unauthorized visitors is that people want and hope to improve their lives and
      the lives of their families and will gravitate to those situations where the
      economics provide the incentives to make the change.

      DISCUSSION: I think all would
      stipulate that anyone has the right to attempt to better his or her conditions
      insofar as those efforts do not infringe upon the rights of others.

      Each nation has the right and
      obligation to establish immigration laws for the orderly and rational
      assimilation of authorized immigrants.

      Do the following comments provide
      justification for unauthorized immigration?

      1. Unauthorized immigrants are
      looking to better their situations.

      2. Unauthorized immigrants
      provide inexpensive labor and are hard workers.

      3. This Nation was built upon
      immigrants.

      4. It is virtually impossible to
      find and deport 12,000,000 unauthorized immigrants.

      The answers to the above four
      should be an unequivocal “no”.

      If anyone disagrees with that, I
      will appreciate his or her reasoning for a “yes” response.

      RECOMMENDED “COMPREHENSIVE”
      SOLUTION TO THIS PROBLEM:

      A foolproof system must be
      devised, implemented, with substantial penalties for non-compliance that will
      verify a person’s legal authorization to work in the United States.

      The concept of “anchor babies” should be eliminated,
      either by a pragmatic interpretation of the 14th
      Amendment (displaced the disputed Civil Rights legislation of 1866, which was
      passed by Congress over Andrew Johnson’s veto, and which was proposed by Congress
      six months after the 13th Amendment had been ratified), by Congressional
      legislation in accordance with Section 5 of the 14th Amendment, or by a
      Constitutional Amendment, that could and should be passed by the House and
      Senate and ratified by the requisite 38 states within a year.

      There should be a $4.00
      (arbitrary) per gallon increase in the federal excise tax on gasoline and
      diesel, at the pump.

      A tax credit would be allowed any
      U.S. taxpayer (who possesses a valid driver’s license and submits proof of
      vehicle registration and proof of insurance) in the amount of $2,000.00 per
      year (10,000 miles @ 20 MPG = 500 gallons, thus, 500 X $4.00 = $2,000.00).

      Ancillary benefits would include
      that this federal excise tax would be collected from all visitors, authorized
      and unauthorized, and this would stimulate purchasers of new vehicles to demand
      more mileage efficiency, i.e., there would be no need for the government to
      force manufacturers to increase mileage efficiencies. The marketplace
      would be effective.

      Federal legislation should be
      passed that would eliminate all minimum wage laws. The “minimum wage”
      concept should be replaced with a massive expansion of the EITC regulations,
      which would cover all U.S. taxpayers who are older than 17 years of age.

      Another benefit would be that
      labor costs would be shifted from “above-the-line” to
      “below-the-line”, making our industries more competitive.

      CONCLUSION: If the above changes were
      legislated, a substantial number of unauthorized visitors would conclude that
      it would be better to end their visits, since the economics of remaining in the
      United States, without authorization, would be substantially diminished.

      After a year, the situation
      should be reviewed and adjustment should be made to further the resolution of
      this serious matter.

      It is logical that a newborn
      should assume the nationality of the mother, regardless of the venue of the
      birth, therefore, the strategy of a mother, who has no authorization to be in
      the U.S., giving birth in the United States should be of no consequence.

      This is a nascent effort at
      offering a pragmatic and rational solution to this serious matter.

      NOTES: This will be a process,
      i.e., not an overnight solution. I will appreciate all comments, critical
      as well as supportive, with the former being most appreciated if rational
      reasons are included.

      Representative Sherman is aware
      of this article, has promised a response and has failed to do so. We, the
      People are begging for leaders, not pure politicians who have embedded within
      their DNA the need to withhold the truth.

      THE FOLLOWING IS A RESPONSE TO A
      COMMENT TO THE ABOVE:

      (modified on August 24, i.e., not
      included in original response,)

      June 13, 2013

      Phunyfarm,

      Thank you for your comments and
      perspective.

      My comments should be and are
      meant to be the beginning of a serious

      “problem-solving”
      discussion of this extremely serious matter.

      Most respond negatively to the
      excise tax with the perception that they couldn’t

      afford $8.00 per gallon.
      Apparently, those do not understand the tax credit,

      until they stop yelling at the
      idea long enough to have it explained to them.

      Additional benefits would be that
      all visitors would pay the $8.00 per gallon,

      which would benefit our tax
      receipts, AND purchasers of automobiles will demand more efficient vehicles
      (the tax credit would expire within 5-10 years).

      The EITC would substitute for
      minimum wage laws ONLY for American citizens and those with legal authority to
      work, here. The rationale for the 18yo

      requirement is to provide a
      disincentive for high school students to leave school early.

      The lack of a minimum wage and
      increased expenses (gasoline) would make it

      difficult for those visitors who
      decided to stay rather than go back to country

      of origin. All
      “visitors” should be welcomed to come and enjoy activities…., then
      go home and live happy lives.

      Again…., these thoughts
      should be discussed and “fine-tuned”.

      At a Townhall Meeting a couple
      months ago, I gave a copy to my Congressman, Brad Sherman. Before I handed it
      to him, as I walked up to him, he shook my hand and exclaimed that I want to
      change how our government functions and have 17 different causes. We have had a
      number of discussions and he has NEVER disagreed with me. At a
      “coffee”, last year, he came up to me and whispered that he was
      closer to my ideas than any one else in Congress.

      The unfortunate factor is that he
      is a politician. Mr. Sherman is possibly one of our most intelligent and
      knowledgeable people in Congress and I like him, but he does not appear to be
      that which We the People are begging for, a leader, and, as with almost all
      politicians, he has the DNA embedded within that enables him to withhold the
      truth, at best.

      He told me to write my phone
      number on the item I gave him (Illegal Visitors), but has not called nor has
      any of his staff.

      UPDATE: Late June, I spoke
      with Scott, Rep. Sherman’s top campaign person, who was going to review the
      above and get back to me.

      Finally, on July 11, since Scott
      had not called me, I called him and expressed my displeasure with his
      failure. The conversation (admittedly, more of a monologue by me) lasted
      about 15 minutes. Again, he has failed to follow-up.

    I think he did the right thing. He knows you have to give and take. I just love how they are showing America how they intended to govern this country. The Senate and House can’t even agree on a bill and the GOP holds the majority in both.
    I can’t wait until the 2016 elections and see the GOP loose their majority.

    1. 1American1st says

      Dream on Socialist, dream on.

      I keep reading more & more posts from “former” Dems who do not like what obama & the Democrat Socialist Party have done to this country.

  41. kbfallon says

    WELL-IT APPEARS THAT QUIVER LIPPED MCCONNELL IS JUST PRETENDING HE HAS SOME BALLZ..HE IS OBVIOUSLY AFRAID OF??? NOT THE REPUBLICANS WHO VOTED HIM INTO OFFICE TO DO SOMETHING OTHER THEN SAY YES SIR MR. REID–I WILL– IF YOU DON’T HOLLER AT ME ANYMORE.

  42. Billy says

    These Republicans looked us in the face and made promises. Now they do exactly what they promised us they would NOT do. If there are any Republican Senators or Representatives reading this, YOU WILL PAY FOR LYING TO “WE the PEOPLE”. Voting against “We the People” will cost you your job. That’s a promise.

  43. Daniel Unruh says

    Who in the hell elected McConnell the be the leader of the Senate? That guy is such a wuss he couldn’t pass extra recess time for a 1st grader. So much for the “WE THE PEOPLE” voting these pu$$y’s in last Nov. When will this bull- $hit ever end? I’m sick and tired of these self serving POS’S. Fire all of them and let’s hold another election!!!!!

  44. Pazuzu says

    Next time those lying bastards in Congress go on recess. Upon returning they should find the locks on their office doors changed.

    If this is the level of guts and leadership the republican party is going to demonstrate why do I want to support and vote for them? Republican politicians, you need to remember that there was other parties, the Wiggs, The Bull Moose Party ect, and now they are gone because they stopped serving the people. You too can join them in the dust bin of history. Mitch McConnel is a waste that is too concerned with his position, career, and being liked by the leftist main stream media to do his job. He needs to be replaced by someone with a set of balls. Mitch McConnel is an establishment Republican looser.

  50. Morton212 says

    McConnell is at least a realist. He does not have the votes to shut down homeland security. Boehner is neither a realist nor a patriot. If there is a terrorist attack now, the Republican party will certainly lose control of the House. The average American voter is centrist in views and this is a disgraceful show of self interest and lack of patriotism.

  63. James Maxwell says

    The GOP does not have much of a chance to save itself based upon the total lack of leadership
    they have demonstrated the past few years. We see evidence based upon the fact that they
    keep electing the same brainless cowards to represent them as “leaders”. first you have
    No Chin and No Spine lading the House and the Senate. The party insist that you continue
    electing these people for one reason only they have been there for eternity and still have not
    learned a dammed thing. The continually roll over for the Socialist Democrats, it is as though
    they are incapable of action to represent the people who elected then and are only concerned
    with lining their own pockets. The only thing these fools understand is that if the people wake up
    and vote they could be thrown out of office and then they would listen to and vote the will of the
    people not the special interest groups who own them

  64. Ralph Long says

    Face it folks Chinless Wimp owl face Mitch McConnell and Speaker John Bonehead are just as big of a total disgrace as Mad Madam Democrat House Minority Leader Nutty Nancy Pelosi and Harebrain Harry Reid the Senate Democrat Minority Leader ans where is Obama you ask? Why off on yet another endless Vacation and again playing endless rounds of golf! God Save the USA from fools like these!

    America is in trouble Why ?? take a close look at who is controlling our lives the congressmen and senators . a good portion of them are Grand Ma’s and gran Pa ‘s ..

America has not passed the point of no return But that line is fast approaching. If we the voters don’t stop these incompetents we now have interested only in gaining wealth and power America that we grew up in will end , Has any one ever seen a brinks truck following a hearse to the grave site ???? God Bless America

  66. tk-atty says

    That is why they have to go! We must run one true conservative in the primaries against them to win, if we run several it splits the vote, and they win by default. Boehner, McConnell and the majority of other Republicans, except those elect this past election are RINO’S. Only interested in keeping their jobs, not caring about the American people, and putting everyone above American Citizens. They have got to go, they have not stopped Obama and his Treasonous acts, any other President who has done, and continues to do, would have already been impeached. Not a fan of Nixon, but Obama makes him look like a choir boy, yet Congress does nothing to stop him.

  67. Jim says

    Is everyone tired of the political crap yet? There is only one way to stop this and that is to inform every politician who claims to represent you, in writing, that they are serving their last term in office if they do not follow through on their commitment. They do understand that language. They pay attention much more to communications from individuals than they do to communications from organizations, so it is important to do your own individual writing. Remember, from their own mouth, as stated by their director, DHS is not an agency that is working to secure the United States Citizens’ safety and security and must be defunded and disbanded immediately. But we, all of us, must demand that our interests be honored by our elected representatives.

    What a joke. Play right into the Dems play book. They keep this up and they will not only win the White House but lose the Senate come next year
    There is no leadership from the GOP

  75. banjojack says

    When I predicted what Mitch “I’m Obama’s Bitch” would do, I was called a right-wing nut job. Ditto for when I opined that Boehner is nothing more than a Democrat-in-Drag. For too long, conservatives are forced into a “lesser of two evils” choice on who to vote for. Vote Libertarian, vote for a write in. Don’t give a dime to the RNC. If a candidate appeals to you, contact the candidate and find out how to donate directly. Most of the money you donate to the RNC never finds it’s way into the candidate’s coffers anyway. Hit these mother’s mistakes in the wallet. They act as they do because they are so accustomed to sucking on the taxpayers tit. They would sell their own mothers to keep their place at the taxpayer funded hog and whore feeding trough known as Congress.

  76. James Grey says

    The Republican Senate seems like a bunch of WEAK Senators, EY HAVE TO SHOW OBAMAWHY. They are allowing the Democrats in the Senate to DO WHAT EVER THEY WANT? WHY? If, McConnell CAN NOT BE STRONG, then replace him. America NEEDS A VERY STRONG SENATE N THE HOUSE TO DO THEIR JOB. Must defeat OBAMA’S messes. THEY MUST NOT ALLOW THE DEMOCRATS R OBAMA TO PUSH THEM AROUND. Fight for America.

  77. Robert Wilson says

    Then it’s true, money/pay offs talks. Pay offs, that is the only answer I can think of concerning the wave of Republicans bending for B.O. Maybe the G.O.P. is now just weak kneed,spineless, rubber legged wimps. OR, sleeper democrats. Which is it?

  78. draftsman69 says

    Spineless they are. I saw it happen before. I thought it would change when the 2014 elections came out the way they did. Now here we are again, the same spineless mealymouthed excuses we’ve seen before. It’s just sad. It reminds me of the saying “Evil prevails when good men do nothing”.

  79. draftsman69 says

    If this continues this way, we may yet see a civil war within this nation.

  80. Karole Conaway says

    McConnell and many other supposed conservatives are not! They are democraps!

  81. rmwayne says

    Like I’ve said over and over, there’s no point in voting for or supporting Republicans like McConnell or Boehner if they’re nothing more than Democrats in disguise.

  82. armydadtexas says

    Go to hell McConnell and take Boehner with you, you feckless, gutless, capitulating COWARD

  83. George Cahonna says

    Weak, Spineless, Worthless OLD Rhino’s must go!! Term Limits must be mandatory..Very few Rhino’s even know why they’re there. Wake up America, your For Sale to the highest bidder!

  84. Mark says

    THEY ALL need to be tried for TREASON,whoever supports this crap needs to be tried and sent to jail for LIFE.

  85. Robert Wilson says

    This is the reason for a third party, what can we call it ? Maybe “THE REVOLUTIONARY PARTY?” We could give potential candidates lie detector tests before they run for office, then, MANDATE a law that would remove them from office should they not follow their oath.

  86. Conservative says

    McConnell and Boehner are politically brain-dead. They just do not care about the issues confronting the U.S. today. They only care about picking up that paycheck and hanging on as long as they can because for each dollar they earn it increases their own, personal stocks, bonds, etc. They are so lackadaisical and sticking to the games they play with lobbyists, major donors and wheeling and dealing with the Democratic leadership that they make no real effort to serve the people who elected them.

    I might add that I am sick of Trump with the aid of the MSM sucking all the air out of the elections that all we hear from is Trump, Hillary and Sanders. Hillary is a corrupt, cheating criminal and Sanders is a confirmed Socialist and the rest of the Democratic candidates are all weak, blabbering, professional politicians. It’ gotten to the point where I am listening to Sanders and he only makes sense in running for office in CUBA or some other Communist Country. Sadly, it’s because I cannot look at Hillary’s evil face or listen to her arrogance and I can’t stand canned speeches from Bush and the others are blasted out by Trump. Although I detest Socialism/Communism, I find that Bernie is sincere and firm in his beliefs and he hasn’t had to sink to chewing up and spitting others out and he is not a vicious liar like Obama. For a conservative, like myself, that is saying a lot. If he were not an atheist, I could almost consider voting for him.
