When The Moment Is Right: A Conservative Coup In The House?

JD Winteregg had a pretty funny campaign ad in his unsuccessful run against John Boehner in 2014.  You might remember the “Electile Dysfunction” video.

Winteregg did a lot better than many expected, but the power of incumbency, especially for the Speaker of the House was too much to overcome.

This time, it is rank and file Republicans who are openly weighing a revolt against Boehner’s leadership team after their underwhelming performance in the opening weeks of the new Congress.

Is it time to finally say, “Bye Bye Boehner?”

Here is a statement from Rep. John Fleming, LA in a story by the Washington Times:

“The problem is we are used to being in this moderate lane and the people, our constituents who are sending us here, are trying to move us over into the more conservative lane,” said the Louisiana Republican. “I think the struggle is that leadership has not yet picked up the trim line that they need to put out more conservative legislation to get better results”

The leadership either doesn’t get it, or they are being deliberately obtuse.  They campaign on conservative ideas, but govern timidly, firmly established in the mushy middle.  Conservatives are tired of the game, and Mr. Fleming is absolutely correct.

The proof of the leadership’s lack of a connection with their conservative base is clearly stated by Rep. Tom Cole of Oklahoma:

“Our problem isn’t leadership around here; it’s followership.  We have a group of people who, frankly, think they are always right and their leaders and the conference collectively are usually wrong.  It’s actually a fairly small group.”

It’s just a hunch, but I imagine that there is a considerably large group of Oklahoma conservatives that believe much differently than Mr. Cole.  My warning to him and others like him is to not take their conservative voters for granted.  We see the Left making bold moves in their “fundamental transformation” of America.  We voted in a new Republican majority to make a stand.

If Boehner, Cole, McCarthy, et al want to see some followership from the conservatives, then it’s time for the leadership to get off their collective asses and get to work.  Use the majority that the voters gave them, and quit acting like losers.  Persuade McConnell and the Senate GOP to use the Reid Rule nuclear option to move legislation forward.   It’s time.  It’s high time.

 

 

Who are you gonna believe, Obama or Osama?

There are only three choices in Islam: [1] either willing submission [conversion]; or [2] payment of the jizya, through physical, though not spiritual, submission to the authority of Islam; or [3] the sword, for it is not right to let him live.

Osama bin Laden, The al Qaeda Reader, Page 42.

Islam is a religion that preaches peace and the overwhelming majority of Muslims are peaceful.

Bulletin: Imminent Terrorist Attack on Southwest Border

Islamic terrorist groups are operating in the Mexican border city of Ciudad Juarez and planning to attack the United States with car bombs or other vehicle born improvised explosive devices (VBIED). High-level federal law enforcement, intelligence and other sources have confirmed to Judicial Watch that a warning bulletin for an imminent terrorist attack on the border has been issued.  Agents across a number of Homeland Security, Justice and Defense agencies have all been placed on alert and instructed to aggressively work all possible leads and sources concerning this imminent terrorist threat.

plato-o-plomoSpecifically, Judicial Watch sources reveal that the militant group Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria (ISIS) is confirmed to now be operating in Juarez, a famously crime-infested narcotics hotbed situated across from El Paso, Texas. Violent crimes are so rampant in Juarez that the U.S. State Department has issued a number of travel warnings for anyone planning to go there. The last one was issued just a few days ago.

Intelligence officials have picked up radio talk and chatter indicating that the terrorist groups are going to “carry out an attack on the border,” according to one JW source.  “It’s coming very soon,” according to this high-level source, who clearly identified the groups planning the plots as “ISIS and Al Qaeda.” An attack is so imminent that the commanding general at Ft. Bliss, the U.S. Army post in El Paso, is being briefed, another source confirms. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) did not respond to multiple inquiries from Judicial Watch, both telephonic and in writing, about this information.   JudicialWatch.org

 

The time to come up with an effective strategy for dealing with these cretins is long overdue, but our current President of the United States is much too busy fundraising and playing racially divisive political games to bother.

When this attack occurs, the S.O.P. reaction of the Administration will be to first feign surprise.  Then, blame it on someone else, probably another intelligence failure.  We can be sure that no one at the White House will know anything about it until they see it on the Media.

I have developed a throbbing case of Obama fatigue.  To say his act is old is understated.

But wait!  There’s more!

ISIS document on SW border trhreat breitbartWriting at Slate, Joshua Keating offers the typical liberal reaction:   it’s a “baseless claim”.  In fact, most of those entering illegally from Afghanistan or Syria are probably fleeing terrorism.  ISYN

Breitbart verifies ISIS threat with leaked document. (how’s that for “baseless”, Joshua?)

Rep. Ted Poe (R-TX) was asked if there is any current interaction between ISIS and Mexican drug cartels he said “yes” and added they are “talking to each other.”  (Joshua characterizes this assertion as “ridiculous”).

Who cares about all this terrorism business anyway, when the real problem is …(wait for it) …global warming.

A Warning for America, Geert Wilders

A guest post from The Florida Security Council (Originally Published on Jun 23, 2013)

 

“Polls show that the influence of those Muslims who live according to islam’s aggressive requirements is growing, especially among young people.Among 15-year-old German Muslims, 40 percent consider islam more important than democracy.Among Muslim university students in Britain, 40 percent support sharia. One in three of those students considers it legitimate to kill in the name of islam.”

The Caliphate is inevitable?

He is on the Department of Homeland Security’s Advisory Council. He is also a long-time official in the Texas Republican Party and was a delegate for Republican presidential nominee John McCain in 2008.

Who is this Texas Republican? Any guesses from our Texas readers? I won’t keep you in suspense. His name is Mohamed Elibiary.

This senior DHS Advisor actually tweeted on June 13 that a “Caliphate” is inevitable and compared it to the EU.

The Caliphate is Inevitable

The Caliphate is Inevitable

Elibiary said America’s choice is whether to support it or not. He implied that he wants the U.S. to support a future caliphate, framing it as a Muslim version of the European Union.

Online supporters of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), a terrorist group that fights to reestablish the caliphate with Baghdad as its capital, distributed and praised Elibiary’s tweet.

Who the Caliph might turn out to be is not known. But, what is not a mystery are the duties of the Caliph:

 

O9.8: “The caliph makes war upon Jews, Christians and Zoroastrians…until they become Muslim or else pay the non-Muslim poll tax.”

O9.9: “The caliph fights all other peoples until they become Muslim.” This is referring to those who are not Jewish, Christian or Zoroastrian. The text acknowledges that some scholars believe it is permissible to allow any kind of non-Muslims to live under sharia except those that leave Islam or are Arab “idol worshippers.” The only choice for those are to convert or die.

P40.1-2: This section cites a hadith that states that whoever disobeys the “leader,” disobeys Allah. The text states that the “leader” is the caliph or his authorized representative.

 

You know, and I know that this country is not prepared for what the world will look like with the return of these barbarians. And yet, they are still welcomed into the country. Even peaceful moslems would be considered heretical, subject to a standing death sentence for not obeying the caliph. It wouldn’t take much for the current random instances of moslem violence in this country to become something entirely different, much more violent, and with much greater frequency. And, in the EU which Elibiary compares the modern day Caliphate to, there would be blood in the streets, sooner rather than later.

the TEA Party is dead? Don’t Be Stupid

A Guest Post by Rodney Lee Conover

rip-teapartyIt’s sickening to hear people – some I really respect – sounding so wrong about “the death” of the Tea Party and how badly they’re doing in the 2014 elections.

Sure, the trolls keep repeating it, but even in Republican circles I’m still hearing how the Tea Party has completely lost all influence in American politics and people are buying into it. To that I can only ask:

What are you, new?

When someone talks about the Tea Party being dead, or that “the brand” is damaged, or however the libs have managed to define it, you can bet it’s someone that doesn’t get out much.

Only folks sequestered in their basements, hospital rooms, DC offices or likewise have been sold this bill of goods. Get out into actual America and it’s the opposite, trust me. What these naysayers are yacking about are Tea Party “groups,” and who cares? What I care about is conservative voters. We are the Tea Party and these opportunistic groups aside, we’ve been busy kicking ass in 2014.

jawsEnabling the Tea Party Downers’ ignorance as always are the media – ignoring the victories Tea Party voters are bringing this time around, despite us having to fight a three-front war against liberals, the media and the establishment GOP – bent on destroying the very people who put them in power.

Tea Party candidate Dan Bongino with his Obama bashing and damn Tea Party ideas just barely squeaked by his opponent, 84%- 16% in Maryland’s Sixth. Why is it newsworthy? Because it’s the only competitive district in Maryland for the GOP.

Didn’t hear about Dan’s landslide? That doesn’t surprise me, there was hardly a mention of him anywhere. He’s a former Secret Service Agent who claims Obama is corrupt and not qualified to lead the nation.

If Dan would have lost that badly, you think they would have reported a little something about the Tea Party boy getting whipped? Yeah. But do a google news search on his primary victory and…. yeah. No wonder you shut-ins think the Tea Party is dead, the NY Times, WaPo, HuffPo and all the other Po’s you read act like they’re dead.

Let’s jump right to Eric Cantor getting shellacked by Tea Party candidate David Brat. How many reports immediately sprang out announcing Brat was ignored by Tea Party groups? It’s true – but who cares? Brat was supported by Tea Party voters and this movement was never about groups.

The Tea Party is a true grass-roots movement no matter how they’ve lied to you about it being “astro-turf”, financed and contrived by the Koch Brothers or whatever. Stop being an idiot. If the Koch Brothers could invent a movement to shift political power such as the Tea Party did in 2010, don’t you think they’d have done it sooner and more often since then? Are you that stupid? Yes you are, so you need some more:

Ken Buck, Tea Party guy in Colorado in the 4th District wins the special election there – but is it news? If he would have came in last it would have been. So I’ll ask again – why do you say the Tea Party hasn’t won anything? Ben Sasse in Nebraska: Tea Party – BLAM! Alex Mooney in West Virginia: Tea Party – BLAM! There’s more –

How many Tea Party candidates have won elections in Texas this year? Too many BLAM!s to list, friendo. They’ve dominated and yet the Tea Party is dead? There are literally dozens of victories already this year in Texas for Tea Party candidates, including the ousting of America’s most senior Congressman, GOP establishment extraordinaire, Ralph Hall… Who?

Ralph Hall!” I screamed at the media… He was beaten by Tea Party candidate “John Ratcliffe!” Wait – are you telling me that an incumbent Congressman got beat in a runoff election for the first time in 20 years – and by some Tea Party upstart, John Ratcliffe? That sounds like a story!

Well, not one that the mainstream press has any interest in. And not one that people hanging onto the dead Tea Party narrative are going to admit actually happened.

It happened my friends. Just like Tea Party guy Curt Clawson in Florida who cruised to victory in the 19th District in yet another special election ignored by the media and our buddies in Tea Party Denial Land.

assholesChris McDaniel is challenging the close results in Mississippi after the despicable Thad Cochran campaign. The media has taken the opportunity to use the Cochran re-election as an example of the Tea Party’s demise. If anything, doesn’t it show the strength of the Tea Party?

It’s hard to beat a guy that’s been in there for thirty or forty years – especially when millions come pouring in from decades of influence. And what about when scumbags from the left start supporting the GOP establishment candidate? Any idea what Cochran had to resort to in order to fend off Tea Party voters? McDaniel would have gotten trounced if the Tea Party were dead, so stop saying that.

No, we’re not winning like 2010 – but now we have the GOP establishment with the Chamber of Commerce, Mark Zuckerburg, Labor Unions, the evil Main Street Republican Partnership Super PAC and even George Soros money teamed up against us. So yeah, it’s hard out here for a pimp.

We’re losing some races – it’s true – but we’re not just winning a ton of them, we’re making this election about which candidate can be the most conservative. It’s forcing the GOP to admit they’re a bunch of Obama enablers. They’re exposed and they need to be beaten before we can do battle with the Maoists.

But to sit there and claim the Tea Party is dead because a couple of greedy and goofy-ass Tea Party “Groups” are backing the wrong horse here and there is just making you sound stupid. Get with the program, buddy – we’re still rolling and the general election is where we need to get it together.

Tea Party groups? Who cares? Tea Party candidates and voters? Not dead by a long shot, so quit saying it. Leave that to the wannabes.

 

The Assault On Our Southern Border Wasn’t Spontaneous, It Was Planned

When I discovered how many ILLEGAL immigrants were flooding our border with Mexico and that they were primarily from Central American countries, I thought to myself…”now, wait a minute.”

My pause was directly attributed to my cynicism and my suspicions of the current criminal enterprise known as the Obama administration.

I just knew this entire fiasco was a classic example of the Cloward-Piven Strategy. Of course I couldn’t prove it, but one thing I learned from spending time on a farm was you didn’t need to see the dead rat in a barn to know there was a dead rat in the barn. The smell is confirmation enough.

Then my nose to the wind approach directed me to the blog Conservative Wife, where the author did some outstanding research and as her blog article indicates, our government initiated this mass invasion and was contracting for escorts/transport in late January.
planning an invasion

I strongly encourage you to click on the Conservative Wife hyperlink above, she has posted the entire requirements for the procurement.

I also encourage you all to forward this to others, and as she said, ‘MAKE THIS GO VIRAL.’

Barack Obama’s SOTU Reality TV Show

A guest post by Rodney Lee Conover

Tuesday night millions of Americans witnessed an unprecedented surge in the proliferation of Reality Television. For the first time in history, the exact same Reality TV show was broadcast on every network – ABC, NBC, CBS & FOX – at the same exact time. In addition, it was also featured on CNN, MSNBC, FOX News and on any number of other cable outlets!

The name of this show was; “President Barack Obama’s State of the Union Address.”

Hi. I’m Rodney Lee Conover and for those of you who missed it – here’s my unabashed review.

Full Disclosure: I’m running for Congress in California’s 8th District.

I watched President Obama deliver the annual State of the Union address and as we’ve come to expect, the President, instead of a solemn opportunity to take a measure of where we are as a nation and as a people, delivered another made­-for­-TV entertainment event. An Executive Branch Reality Show and like most Reality television – completely contrived..

Obama_speech_2

The President promised yet again to pivot to the economy, put our people back to work – vowing to rebuild the trust of the People in the government’s ability to provide solutions for all. But this is empty regardless of how many times or how eloquently he repeats them. Anyone with a modicum of awareness of real Reality just shakes their head while he’s explaining how America is now “Energy Independent” thanks to him..

.. Of course that’s because no one has to drive to work anymore – but he didn’t mention holding up the Keystone Pipeline. Must have slipped his mind.

The President congratulated the Congress for passing a budget: The first in 4 years. It was a budget he described as undoing some of last year’s severe sequester cuts (his idea) to education. But he failed to mention the disgraceful cuts to veterans benefits included in the Ryan / Murray budget disaster.

Speaking of which – John McCain has said that Republicans who opposed the budget deal lacked “intellectual integrity.” In fact, my opponent voted for that budget deal (which included those military pension cuts). I would have been opposed to it. In fact, I’ll make a promise to you right now. I will never vote to balance spending on the backs of our military.   Never.

Bruce Cotton and Ann-Marie of Lone Pine, Ca. Vietnam veteran and hero of mine.

Bruce Cotton and Ann-Marie of Lone Pine, Ca. Vietnam veteran and hero of mine.

Our veterans have earned not only their pension benefits, but also deserve the very best medical care possible. Further, they should be able to go to VA Clinics and Hospitals and speak freely about their needs without having to worry that some slip of the tongue will cause them to be denied any liberties or be deprived of their 2nd Amendment rights.

The backlog of veterans waiting to be treated is inexcusable, and deserves the attention of our political leaders who pay lip service one moment, then cut retirement benefits the next.

There are solutions to the problems our veterans face with getting proper medical care. Those solutions are not found in the single-­payer, single­-provider system model that the President and the Democrats intend to bring to the rest of the country with Obamacare.

I believe that citizens should be able to choose their own healthcare, not the government. When the President promised us that if we liked our healthcare we could keep it, he knew that was not the case. Like millions of Californians, last October, I got a letter from my insurance company canceling my coverage, even though I liked it and wanted to keep it. The replacement coverage is more expensive, has a higher deductible and higher out­ of­ pocket costs. I also like my doctor of nine years, but he’s not compliant with the Affordable Care Act.

obamacareSo, Obamacare costs more and covers less. And it certainly hasn’t covered the 40 million uninsured that the President promised. We conservatives saw this coming, and fought a long hard fight to keep it from becoming law. But, elections have consequences, and without one single Republican vote, Obamacare became law.

The final chance that we had to stop this train wreck happened last Fall when House Conservatives led a charge to de­fund Obamacare. In the end, establishment Republicans including my opponent voted to fully fund Obamacare and allow it to go forward.

The President had very little to say about this signature achievement, and understandably so. A botched roll-­out effort, a failed website, billions of dollars wasted, and still millions of Americans without coverage, or unsure if they even have coverage, gives little room for Mr. Obama to boast of the program’s success.

It’s harder to understand why Establishment Republicans caved. The House controls the purse­strings and originates all spending bills. The Republicans own the majority in the House. Why would they give in? The framers of the Constitution gave the House under Article One the power and the duty to stop onerous legislation which was passed over the will of the people.

Establishment Republicans don’t like change and they feel very threatened by anyone who is new to The Club. Just look at the way they have sabotaged Ted Cruz, and ridiculed Rand Paul. These are the same Establishment Republicans who vehemently opposed Ronald Reagan in 1980, but who had done a complete turnaround by 1984.

fairtaxThe President may find an ally in these Establishment Republicans on issues like immigration reform, tax reform, and increased use of Executive Orders. I want to abolish the IRS – the most intrusive, coercive, and corrosive Federal agency ever. I would replace the tax code with The Fair Tax. Every American will become a voluntary taxpayer paying taxes when they choose and as much as they choose, by how they choose to spend their money. What could be more conservative than that?

I will not vote for a pathway to citizenship for anyone in the country illegally as long as our borders are not secure, and there are millions and millions of American citizens who can’t find work, and millions more who have simply given up trying to find a job.

And, I will continue to work to repeal and replace Obamacare with a system that champions first­class medical care and free­market principles that allows people to choose their doctors, choose their coverage, and make informed choices on private, competitive health insurance coverage.

rodneyleeconover  I’m Rodney Lee Conover. May God Bless you, and May God Bless the Great California Republic.

 I need your help and support.   I’ll do all the work – it’s a fair deal: Take it.

Is it Mitt, or is it Hillary?

This is excerpted from an earlier post during the last Presidential primary season. I pulled the quotes from the excellent resource website, “On The Issues.”

See if you can identify the speaker as Mitt Romney, or Hillary Clinton:


1) “I am adamantly against illegal immigrants. People have got to stop employing illegal immigrants. you see loads of people waiting to get picked up to go do yard work & construction work & domestic work.”

2) “We have to have our citizens insured, and we’re not going to do that by tax exemptions, because the people that don’t have insurance aren’t paying taxes.”

3) “I hate the idea of in any way making it more difficult for kids, even those who are illegal aliens, to afford college.”

4) “We need to stand firm on behalf of sensible gun control legislation.”

5) “I also support an assault weapon ban.”

6) “The American people are tired of liars and people who pretend to be something they’re not.”

7) “I have never met anyone who is pro-abortion. Being pro-choice is not being pro-abortion.”

8] “We ought to be providing domestic partnership benefits for people who are in homosexual and lesbian relationships.”

_________________________________________

The answers:

(1) Hillary, (2) Mitt, (3) Mitt, (4) Hillary, (5) Mitt, (6) Hillary, (7) Hillary, (8) Hillary

So, how did you do? I live in a deep red state so my protest vote against Mitt won’t mean very much.

But for you conservatives who think Mitt is the only way to “win” the country back, take a look at Mitt’s changing stands on the issues that matter. Look closely. No one has forced Mitt to change his mind on them. Just naked opportunism. You decide if it’s worth it to you to elect someone who is the Republican version of Hillary Clinton.

I know what my answer is.

Twice Deported Illegal From El Salvador Robs and Murders 14-Year-Old Houston Girl

Read all about it in the Houston media. It isn’t like anybody besides bloggers will cover it nationally. Y’all really think that the MSM is going to cover this one? Nah. They’re too busy covering the government reluctantly approving the money for adding 1,000 more border agents.

Think about how you would feel if you found out this POS had been deported TWICE for DUI, then successfully came back through the (intentionally) porous border to rob your child and shoot her in the back, killing her as she attempted to run.

Let me go through that again: He broke our laws twice previously when crossing the border. He was arrested twice for DUI, breaking our laws again. His punishment was a plane ticket back to El Salvador. Yeah, THAT really showed him. How many other robberies/murders did he commit successfully? I doubt very much that this was his first.

In the meantime, our Washington officials do less than nothing. Oh, wait…..they ARE preventing Arizona from collecting and deporting illegal lawbreakers by pandering to illegal aliens, hoping for an expanded and ignorant voter base. And they’re making much of $600 million for 1,000 more border agents. Big whoop. The extra 1,000 wouldn’t cover the Arizona border even IF they were allowed to actually do their jobs, which is pretty doubtful in this administration.

Who is responsible for this child’s death? Well, the illegal will get the death penalty for it, but his willing accomplices are in Washington, D.C. They should be held accountable.

You need to pass the Houston account of this child’s murder on so that her death isn’t also successfully swept under the rug.

H/T Ed at GCP who knows about this outrage because he lives there.

Of course, that evil POS piece of work Janet Napolitano is busily blaming the Republicans for immigration problems. Her thought process is nonexistent interesting.

Human Trafficking and Slavery in DC Beltway

Under the radar alert:

The Washington Examiner’s Freeman Klopott is reporting that dozens of wealthy Beltway families have employed illegal immigrants as domestic employees in what Federal prosecutors have said amounts to slave labor.

Sentencing was scheduled to be held for naturalized citizen and Indonesian native Soripada Lubis for harboring up to 24 Indonesian women, and profiting from their labor.  Lubis’ wife, Siti Chadidjah Siregar, an Indonesian citizen, has also entered a guilty plea to making false statements, and faces up to 5 years in prison.

This is interesting:

Klopott says, “The list of Lubis’ 50 clients divulged in court filings by federal prosecutors includes a high-profile Washington attorney, ….   No charges have been filed against the people who employed the women, and The Examiner has chosen not to release their names.

Begging the question, of course, “Why not release the names?”

Since this case involves under the table, cash payments to illegal immigrants, then it is safe to assume that taxes have not been paid.

There’s a lot of that going around lately.

Bush commutes Compean and Ramos

Breaking. President Bush commutes sentences for Border Agents Compean and Ramos!

ramoscompeanadThis is very good news for Americans who have argued that Compean and Ramos should have never been convicted in the first place. It is also wonderful news for the families.

Fox News is reporting that that the men are scheduled for release on March 20.

Mr. Bush could have given the agents a full pardon, but chose instead to commute the sentences. AP reports that according to a “senior admnistration official”…

Mr. Bush “believed they were excessive and that they had already suffered the loss of their jobs, freedom and reputations.

The action by the president, who believes the border agents received fair trials and that the verdicts were just, does not diminish the seriousness of their crimes, the official said.

A Few Words From Newt, On Our Own Phoney War!


I am always impressed with his brilliant mind.

45 Muslim doctor ‘cyber-terrorists’ planned US terror.

A group of 45 Muslim doctors threatened to use car bombs and rocket grenades in terrorist attacks in the United States during discussions on an extremist internet chat site.

Cyber-terrorists: Tariq Daour, Younis Tsouli and Waseem Mughal

Police found details of the discussions on a site run by one of a three-strong “cyber-terrorist” gang.

They were discovered at the home of Younis Tsouli, 23, Woolwich Crown Court in south-east London heard.

One message read: “We are 45 doctors and we are determined to undertake jihad and take the battle inside America.

“The first target which will be penetrated by nine brothers is the naval base which gives shelter to the ship Kennedy.” This is thought to have been a reference to the USS John F Kennedy, which is often at Mayport Naval Base in Jacksonville, Florida.

Whaddisit with these doctors? Weren’t they paid enough? They need longer hours to keep their minds focused!

The Leftards are knocked sideways by these stories. All their theories fail to explain the evidence.

Keep the Anglosphere safe!

Break out the sackcloth and ashes

Linkfest Haven, the Blogger's OasisIt’s dead, Jim. Again.

Cloture on the immigration bill failed 46-53.

On the other side of Capitol Hill, House Speaker Pelosi made the following statement, noteworthy only for its breathtaking arrogance and hebetude :

“Today, Republicans in the Senate had an historic chance to act in the interests of the American people, but chose not to.”

Umm-kay Miz Pelosi. Three out of four Americans opposed this bill. Three quarters! almost as many as opposed your trip to Syria. According to you and your ilk, the tail is supposed to wag the dog.

SwampWoman provided us with live-blogging of the voting:

10:04 – Cloture vote begins. Does Reid have a couple of Democrats ready to switch from Nay to Yea? He’ll need them.

10:11 – Webb votes against cloture, and I count 22 so far overall against, with 20 for.

10:15 – Landrieu votes no, another Democrat against, although that’s not a switch. Rockefeller stayed as a no, as well.

10:19 – Bernie Sanders and Tom Harkin voted against cloture, as did Nelson of Nebraska. Robert Byrd stayed a No, while Olympia Snowe stayed an Aye. Mark Pryor voted against cloture. Sam Brownback switched to No — very interesting.

10:20 – Norm Coleman voted against cloture. Wow.

10:26 – A majority, 53 Senators, have rejected cloture. It’s dead … again.

And now, please stand for the closing hymn and then we will proceed to cemetery….

heh.

Sutton should resign

In the last six months, agents along the Southwest border caught 15 people from Iran, 35 from Pakistan, 12 from Jordan, two from Syria and five from Lebanon. Conservatives have been deeply disappointed with the Administration’s half-hearted efforts to provide Border Security. We’ve also been more than just a little puzzled with the actions of US Attorney Johnny Sutton, whose over-zealous prosecution of Border Agents has led to the controversial imprisonment of Agents Compean and Ramos, and the prosecution of a Sheriff’s Deputy, while protecting dope dealers and illegal immigrants.

It’s time for Sutton to go.

On June 30, the San Antonio and Austin Chapters of the Minuteman Civil Defense Corps. and hundreds of bikers from American Freedom Riders — a group dedicated to stopping illegal immigration from coming across the border — will surround Sutton’s office at high noon and call for him to resign.

More than 1,000 people are expected to rally Saturday outside the offices of U.S. Attorney Johnny Sutton in San Antonio to demand his termination and protest his “malicious prosecution” of law-enforcement officers who sought to arrest illegal aliens.

That’s what I’m talking about! Read more

Tony’s gone!!!!

So it’s farewell then Tony. What did you do for the British Isles – or did you in fact do anything? Charles Moore in the Telegraph has a few interesting, and for me, accurate remarks.

 

When Margaret Thatcher was forced out in November 1990, almost everyone could have given an account – favourable or unfavourable – of what she had done. “She’s put the Great back in Britain,” said some. “She’s destroyed the social fabric,” said others.

It is much harder to sum up Tony Blair in terms of what he has actually done, for good or ill. He inherited a successful, but over-regulated and overtaxed economy. That is what he leaves behind. He inherited educational failure. No change there, either. He inherited a health service struggling half-heartedly with reform. That is still the case.

In 1997, there was economic inequality, too much crime, anxiety about immigration, a battle about “multi-culturalism”, and indecision about Europe. Ten years later, snap. Even the famed peace process in Northern Ireland flowed naturally from the earlier work of John Major.

Oddly enough, it is only in the field of the constitution, in which Tony Blair never expressed much interest, that huge changes have taken place. The relationship between the judges, government and Parliament is now dangerously in flux. The United Kingdom, thanks to Europe from above and devolution from below, is starting to unpick.

True – he did the right thing on Iraq and I will always thank him for that. But at what expense to his homeland in neglecting other things needful?

Who’s Next?

New Zogby poll on immigration

trent.jpgA new Zogby poll, conducted over the Internet June 15-18 reveals some interesting, but not very surprising opinions…

A majority of Americans oppose the immigration bill currently being considered by the Senate, and they have an overwhelmingly poor opinion of the way President Bush and the U.S. Congress have handled the issue. A Zogby Interactive poll of 8,300 representative adults nationwide found only 38 percent supported the bill currently being considered by the Senate, while 56 percent opposed it.

A plurality of participants said enforcement of existing laws is the biggest immigration issue in the United States.

Among Democrats, immigration was rated fifth on a list of 16 issues, behind Iraq, healthcare, jobs and the environment; and 1 percent ahead of foreign policy.

For Republicans, immigration was the second issue, just four points behind terrorism and security, with the war in Iraq a distant third.

Among key independent voters, immigration tied with Iraq as the most important issue, with healthcare the only other issue registering significantly.

Very interesting findings, confirms that there are more of you nativists out there than I imagined.

Phoney support for amnesty bill touted

Fresh pickin’s from FNC Political Grapevine:

During a rally in support of the Senate’s immigration bill last Thursday — Senators Ted Kennedy, Mel Martinez and others frequently referred to a large stack of boxes they said contained a million letters of support for immigration reform.

But Roll Call Newspaper reports one of its photographers checked the boxes and found they were empty. And a spokesman for the Congressional Hispanic Caucus —which helped coordinate the event — confirms that is true.

Carlos Sanchez says actually bringing 310 boxes full of letters would have presented a security headache in a box-spooked world.

Presenting stage props as the Real Deal, and then being exposed as a fraud is deliciously ironic, but I’m sure the Admiral, Trent, and the boys probably fail to see the humor.

Just another word

The new Bruce Willis movie, the fourth of the Die Hard series, is set for release next week in the U.S. and the following week in Europe.  Luc Van Braekel at Brussels Journal has noticed some subtle differences in the marketing posters.  Can you spot them?

It’s no big deal to Trent Lott

Take a look at the last few paragraphs of the Washington Times report on efforts to revive the immigration bill….

One key question is how to go forward even though several amendments have already cut at the grand bargain — including limiting the guest-worker program and making it easier to deport those who don’t qualify for legalization — and several other difficult amendments could pass before the bill is final.

Senate Minority Whip Trent Lott, Mississippi Republican, said those amendments will simply disappear when the House and Senate go to conference.

“No big deal — you pitch those before you get to the Rotunda,” he said.

But that is just what those who oppose the bill fear.

“I’m really disturbed Trent Lott would say: accept an amendment, he’ll pitch it in conference,” Mr. Sessions said. “Whose side is he on?”

Lott’s response shows a willingness of the bill’s proponents to negotiate the details in less than good-faith. It is disgusting and outrageous, and shows why the “comprehensive approach” to address the various issues will not work.

The American People have expressed their desire for Border Security. Poll after poll shows a large majority favoring Border Security first with employer enforcement a close second.

It is time for President Bush and the pro-amnesty coalition to listen to the People. Build the Fence. Show us that you can secure the borders. If you want to pass a bill to legalize the immigrants already in the country, then address that issue separately, debate it, and put it forward for consideration. There is no reason why Border Security should be held hostage to the proponents of amnesty for illegal immigrants.
