I have several observations about Boehner’s cave on funding DHS and Obama’s illegal Immigration Action.
First, let there be no doubt about it – Boehner and McConnell planned to cave on this all along. They and their Chamber of Commerce masters want to import cheap labor as much as Obama wants to import Democrats. And although the Failure Twins were put in their positions by voters wanting to stop Obama, they do not share that priority, not much anyway. Ace has it right:
Each of Boehner's and McConnell's "defeats" are in fact planned in advance. They are not trying to advance the conservative agenda; they are attempting to con conservatives into believing they have attempted to implement conservative policy, when in fact they were delivering their political deliverables to their Donor Class paymasters all along.
Second, because of this cave, we are closer to a prolonged to permanent tyranny voted for by imported and bought Democrats. The venerable Phyllis Schlafly is as right as always:
The Obama Democrats have an audacious scheme for winning future elections. They just plan to import 5 million non-citizens and credential them as voters who will, in gratitude, vote Democratic.
The way this devious formula works is stunningly simple. Just get the new Republican Congress (under Speaker John Boehner and Sen. Mitch McConnell) to pass a full-funding bill for Homeland Security without any exception for the funding of Obama's illegal executive amnesty, which will allow Obama to give work permits, Social Security numbers and driver's licenses to 5 million illegal aliens.
Once the 5 million so-called undocumented persons are given those valuable documents, there is no way to stop them from voting. That conclusion is drawn from the testimony of voting experts such as Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, who told the U.S. House Oversight Committee on Feb. 12, "It's a guarantee it will happen."
Kobach's warning was reinforced by testimony before the same committee by Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted, who noted that the 5 million non-citizens would receive the "same documents that federal law requires the states to recognize as valid forms of identification for voter registration." And once an alien registers to vote, Kobach said, it is "virtually impossible" to remove him from the voter rolls.
And, as Schlafly goes on to say, the imported Democrats will get lots of welfare goodies, paid for by us sucker taxpayers, of course, to keep them voting Democrat.
Third, we are now that much closer to a strong third party in America. The Republican base, including me, is fed up. We voted strong in 2014 and gave a clear mandate to the new Republican Congress: S.T.O.P. O.B.A.M.A. Yet we get this? We still get Republicans lying down and enabling Obama’s tyranny?
As I noted in December, the Republican establishment does not get the political danger. They do not get the breadth of the anger. But if they nominate a Jeb Bush after caving again and again to Obama, they will get it all right. They will get a third party/independent run as has not been seen for decades.
