AMNESTY ADVISORY: Michael McCaul’s border bill HR 1147 is a gateway to amnesty…
Paul Ryan will lead the way.
A recent conference call with an unnamed major immigration enforcement organization that lobbies in DC has revealed that the pathway to the Republican’s amnesty bill will require House Republican’s cover through some type of enforcement bill. This information comes from Stop The Magnet, itself a a grassroots immigration enforcement group, based in Houston, Texas.
It was revealed that the likely bill to move forward on the Republican side will be Rep. Michael McCaul’s border bill H.R. 1417. Bi-partisan supporters of the bill include, Nancy Pelosi, Speaker Boehner, Rep. Sheila Jackson-Lee. WooHoo! In short, this bill is a fluff bill with no real and concrete action required to close the border.
The Well-Greased Machine
Parts of this post was originally written in August 2009; six months after Obama was elected. It is being updated now due to its original length and relevance. Most Americans to this day have never heard of Cloward and Piven. Their tactics set the stage for the Florida Bush-Gore recount crisis of 2000, and since, have introduced a level of fear, tension and foreboding to U.S. elections.
By decimating insurers and overloading Medicaid, the system collapses, with nowhere to turn, leading to single-payer. It’s all part of the Obama plan. The goals of socialism is communism. This is the Progressive Democrat’s blueprint.
Obama’s rapid rise was planned for many years, but it would be ‘opportunity’ that would guide when he was told to make the move for the Presidency. It was seven-years in the planning. A perfect storm of opportunities provided the window for Obama—the long-term denigration and violation of the constitution, the financial attack on and manipulation of our economy by the world’s ‘central bankers’, the grabbing of executive powers by W. Bush, and our collective exhaustion over a $1 trillion dollar war.
Our economy is hemorrhaging.
Americans enjoyed the benefits of living in a AAA reserve currency country for 66 years. Until Obama came along. Despite a mess of world events and polls with failure written all over them, Obama fled to the beaches and golf links of Martha’s Vineyard to live-out his provincial life. The economy is sick. Detroit became the largest U.S. city to file for bankruptcy. Chicago has an unfunded pension liability of $19B. The state of Illinois $100B. College graduates are underemployed and under siege with debt.
Meanwhile, the percentage of civilians 16 years and older working or actively looking for work reached a 34-year low. The labor force participation rate has fallen to 63.4%. The lowest point since December 1978. Pages in the Code of Federal Regulations hit an all-time high of 174,545 in 2012 at a cost of $1.8 trillion, roughly equal to the GDP of Canada. Our $16.7 trillion total debt is now 106% of the $15.8 trillion economy.
Without victims, liberal Democrats have nowhere to turn for votes. But for the GOP, what good is it to gain the Hispanic vote which is 10% of the total and lose 30% of the base? They just lost me.
The most striking feature of the amnesty campaign is the blatant pandering plunge into identity politics. Much of this maneuvering takes place in the political twilight inhabited by Progressive groups, lobbyists, and special interests money. Rubio and the Republicans are pandering to a segment of the electorate that gave Mitt Romney less than 5% of his total votes.
Latino-Americans, the legal ones, oppose amnesty. Pandering doesn’t attract their vote. There are some people who earnestly but foolishly believe an amnesty will magically fix the Republican party’s problem with Hispanics. The GOP won’t win over Latinos by backing amnesty. In fact, the GOP’s numbers with Hispanic Americans are likely to GO DOWN if an Amnesty bill is signed into law.
The Tale of Benedict Rubio
Human nature can be embarrassingly predictable. If not repeatable.
Benedict Arnold is the most well known traitor of the American Revolutionary War. He would have been famous for his successful military actions, if not for his unforgivable act of betrayal of American Officer-turned-British spy. Everyone despises a traitor. When you become a traitor to one side, the other side never can trust you either. Arnold’s duplicity earned him the hatred of his countrymen.
Just as it was hard to reconcile the image of a war hero with one of a traitor, it’s hard to reconcile the image of a Republican actively advancing the progressive cause of Ted Kennedy. Arnold’s unforgivable act of treason has often been attributed to a flawed character, but the real story is sadder and more complex. Money was clearly a factor in Arnold’s betrayal efforts.
Immigration: Not a Single Issue
Some apologists for illegal aliens have actually claimed that amnesty or comprehensive Immigration reform is a single issue policy. Wish it were. But it’s not. Besides borders security, interior enforcement, fencing, Amnesty, E-verify, entry-exit systems, guest worker and visas, asylum, anchor baby and chain migration, unlawful aliens causes an enormous drain on public funds, increases the rate of unemployment and lowers the standard of living of Americans.
Immigration reform touches so many varied principles of conservatism that its almost mind-boggling to view it as a single issue. It impacts labor issues, fiscal matters, electoral integrity, law enforcement, education, border security, health services, privacy matters, rule of law and its impact is arguably greatest where the issue of national security is concerned.
