Republicans’ new worst fear isn’t defaulting on America’s debts. If an immigration policy favored by the White House and Senate Democrats should become law, 17.3 million newly legalized immigrant voters would emerge by 2036, eager to reward the party that gave them a path to citizenship.

The White House has shifted gears and put its policy team in immigration overdrive, zooming past the debt crisis that threatened to sink the republic and on to the task of normalizing the estimated 11 million U.S. residents who have no legal basis for being there.

The Democrat-dominated U.S. Senate passed a bill in June that would provide a citizenship path for those who have been in the U.S. since the end of 2011. But as with the early days of the debt crisis and the partial government shutdown, Republican leaders in the House of Representatives aren’t eager to consider it.

The White House has avoided saying that it take advantage of a weak House and spend its political capital to push an immigration policy, but Republicans have reason to suspect the other shoe is about to drop.

The Center for Immigration Studies, a Washington, D.C. think-tank, projects that the Senate bill, S.744, would add 17.3 million new legal, voting-age U.S. residents to 14.9 million whom analysts already expect to appear without the proposed law.

‘To place these figures in perspective,’ writes Steven Camarota, the group’s director of research, ‘the last four presidential elections were decided by 4.5 million votes on average.’

Converting illegal immigrants into citizens has long been a Democratic Party brass ring. And not only, as President Barack Obama told business leaders on Sept. 18, because ‘we know . . . that that can add potentially a trillion dollars to our economy, and that we will continue to attract the best and brightest talent around the world.’

Hispanics are the biggest ethnic group involved in U.S. immigration. In the 2012 elections, 77 per cent of those who voted supported Democratic candidates for Congress, according to the polling group Latino Decisions. Seventy-five per cent voted for Obama.

Among Hispanic voters who weren’t born in the U.S., Democratic congressional candidates picked up 81 per cent of the vote. Obama rated 80 per cent.

In fact, Republicans’ share of Hispanic votes in presidential elections peaked in 2004, at 43 per cent, before tumbling in the next two elections.

And the Pew Research Center has consistently found that large majorities Hispanic voters favor policies that produce governments with bigger footprints and more social programs.

‘There are things that we know will help strengthen our economy that we could get done before this year is out,’ the president said Wednesday night as focus on the debt-limit fix bill moved from the Senate to the House.

‘A law to fix our broken immigration system’ was first on his wish-list.

‘We had a very strong Democratic and Republican vote in the Senate,’ Obama told the Los Angeles affiliate of the Spanish-language network Univision on Tuesday, comparing it to the debt battle. ‘The only thing right now that’s holding it back is again, Speaker Boehner not willing to call the bill on the floor of the House of Representatives.’

‘So we’re going to have to get through this crisis that was unnecessary, that was created because of the obsession of a small faction of the Republican Party on the Affordable Care Act. Once that’s done – you know, the day after – I’m going to be pushing to say, “call a vote on immigration reform.”‘

Republicans in the House are less split on Obamacare than on immigration, with some arguing that rewarding lawbreakers sets a bad example and others pointing to economic advantages of a larger workforce willing to undertake manual labor, and a boom in fast-tracked visas for those with specialized skills.

But if Obama thinks he has the GOP on the ropes, an aide to a conservative House Republican lawmaker told MailOnline, he will be surprised by the party unity that will return as soon as someone breathes ‘the “A”-word: “Amnesty”.’

‘Everyone in the House Republican caucus wants to get rid of Obamacare,’ the aide said, ‘but not everyone agreed killing it was worth going to the mat.’

‘But we’re talking about changing voting patterns for maybe 100 years and creating natural advantages for candidates who will run against our guys. It’s like giving my boss 40 pounds of rocks to carry over his shoulder, and letting his challenger walk around with a fanny pack full of feathers.’

The debt-limit and shutdown fights, says Idaho GOP Rep. Raul Labrador, may have made immigration advocates’ uphill climb even steeper, especially for Republicans who suspect President Obama of having an ulterior motive.

‘I think what he’s done over the last two and half weeks [is] he’s trying to destroy the Republican Party,’ Labrador said Wednesday at the monthly Conversations with Conservatives meeting organized by the Heritage Foundation.

‘And I think that anything we negotiate right now with the president on immigration will be with that same goal in mind, which is to destroy the Republican Party and not to get good policies.’

‘There are things that we are on the same page about,’ Labrador said, ‘and if he is unwilling to negotiate on those things I don’t see how he could in good faith negotiate with us on immigration.’

House Republicans’ strategy so far has been to approach the Senate bill piecemeal, advancing parts of it–border security and more fences, for instance–that GOP leaders like.

Speaker John Boehner has said Senate Democrats’ more comprehensive approach won’t reach the House floor, even though 14 Senate Republicans gave it ‘yes’ votes.

But the fight over the partial government shutdown that occupied half of October may have given Democrats insights into how to combat that strategy.

House Republicans offered a series of nearly a dozen one-off bills to fund government agencies and initiatives whose absence became a black eye, including the National Institutes of Health, the Department of Veterans Affairs and salary payments for active-duty military.

Obama found he could stave off the pressure to sign all but a few, insisting on an all-or-nothing approach–which he eventually got.

‘It’s different, of course, because there’s no economic catastrophe awaiting if Republicans sit on their hands with immigration,’ a Democratic campaign strategist told MailOnline on Wednesday.

‘But the White House has learned how stubborn some of the Republicans are willing to be. And more important, they’ve figured out which ones are worth trying to reason with.’

While some Republican moderates will be unwilling to cross the tea party caucus while the sting of the debt defeat is still in the air, others have already signaled their openness to meet Democrats halfway, mostly in one-off measures that carve out pet projects from the larger immigration issue.

California Rep. Nancy Pelosi, a long-time supporter of immigration reform, said this month that she will do ‘whatever it takes’ to find a bill that the House can bring to the Senate.

She’s open to going to a House-Senate legislative conference with ‘one bill, two bills, one at a time, singly, jointly, severally, whatever,’ betting that whatever emerges from such a meeting would including ‘comprehensive immigration reform that will lead to a pathway to citizenship.’

Pelosi may find some help from a few Republicans.

The Associated Press reported on Sept. 30 that Rep. Bob Goodlatte, who chairs the House Judiciary Committee, has been openly discussing how to change the immigration status of the 11 million illegal immigrants in the U.S. without awarding them special status.

His idea is to allow illegal immigrants to have legal work status–a ‘green card’–and then to allow them access to a list of existing routes to citizenship. They could be sponsored by a U.S. company, for instance, or by a relative who’s already a citizen.

Goodlatte favors this more narrow approach to the Senate’s catch-all bill, which has a companion bill in the House that no Republicans have been willing to endorse.

House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, another Virginia Republican, is also helping Goodlatte with a bill that would provide a path to citizenship for immigrants brought illegally to the U.S. as children.

Idaho Rep. Raul Labrador and Texas Rep. Ted Poe are trying to create a visa program that would target low-skilled workers for migration into the U.S.

Several of these narrow proposals have already passed through House committees, and their Republican chairman are hoping they see action.

House Homeland Security Committee chairman Mike McCaul of Texas told the AP that he thinks a series of immigration bills ‘would be the next agenda item in the queue after we’re done with this [debt limit]  mess.’

Cantor spokesman Doug Heye insists, however, that while ‘moving immigration forward remains a priority . . . right now there’s no firm timetable.’

Goodlatte has said, though, that he wants to see some movement by the end of October on a bill that could give the Senate some basis to negotiate.

A senior aide to a southern Republican House member said that ultimately, some Republicans don’t want their party to be ‘on the wrong side of the new electoral math,’ and ‘if we can create our own grateful constituency, that’s just good politics in addition to doing the right thing.’

    “One congressman thinks Obama is trying to destroy the Republican Party.”

    No – NoBama is trying (and SUCCEEDING) in destroying America.

    • Sick of it

      With the hearty support of the Legislative and Judicial branches.

    • Bossman

      How is he “destroying America?” When you throw words like that around, you should be able to back it up with a lot of solid facts. I’m anxious to know those facts.

      • MekongDelta69

        I’m going to take your ridiculous comment with tongue and cheek.

        If you’re really ‘anxious to know those FACTS,’ then you might want to read this (just one comprehensive one, among a million other links):


        I doubt you’ll ever even try to read any of it, but on the one in a million chance you do, you might learn something…

        • Sick of it

          I like the article on how the President’s policies have harmed young people, but we need more research on what positions/salaries/etc. most of the younger generation holds today. The employed ones are often working at McDonald’s or some other low pay, dead end job.

  • What I’m hoping is that Obama burned through so much political capital in the budget deal and Boehner burned so much himself setting aside the Hastert Rule to get it passed that there will be no energy to do this.

    I never thought amnesty was dead, even when we were getting articles a few weeks ago claiming it was. That was probably a lame attempt at a head fake to get us to give up resisting. Anyway, I’ve been keeping up my calling, but during the fake shutdown, all the Democrats used it as an excuse not to answer their phones, even though the Republicans still were. Therefore, I was only able to make forward progress with Republicans, but now I’ll be able to get back to calling Democrats.

    As long as jillionaires and zillionaires want amnesty and open borders, a “comprehensive immigration reform” bill will never truly be dead. We can exert enough political pressure to make it comatose.

    • Greg Thomas

      Your political shrewdness is astute QD. I hope that you are right on this one. Amnesty bills seemingly now never die, they just linger in the corner until the next round of traitors decides to dust it off again and shove it down our throats..

      • Look at the other side of the coin. Why, after this apparent (and mostly real) victory in the budget fight, would Obama pivot to immigration? By running his yap about it, people are only going to remember that the issue is out there, and start getting enraged again.

        On second thought, I’m glad he pivoted to immigration.

        • Bossman

          You asked why he pivoted to immigration. The answer is very simple: During the last two campaigns, he promised the voters that he would fix the unresolved broken immigration system.

          • Why would you fix something that’s broken by breaking it even more?

      • sbuffalonative

        That’s pretty much how every ‘progressive’ liberal issue becomes acceptable or law. They just keep resubmitting the proposition until it passes then they call it ‘settled law’.

  • WR_the_realist

    There are an awful lot of idiot Republicans who think that if they join the amnesty bandwagon then grateful former illegal aliens will vote for them. Why on earth should they, when they know that the Democrats gave them amnesty too, and will give them all sorts of benefits paid for by white taxpayers?

  • Alfred the Great

    obama wants to destroy the white race. No question about it.

  • Luca

    This Neo-Marxist president is trying to make LBJ look like a Tea Party member.

    If 17 million mestizos can add a trillion dollars to the GDP, then why does Mexico, with more than 120.000.000 Mexicans, have a GDP that barely goes over 1 billion. Uh-oh, I think I’m a racist !

    • kjh64

      What they don’t tell you is that they will take several trillion in welfare benefits.

      • Stentorian_Commentator

        I’m no expert, but I understand an economist at Harvard named George Borjas has determined that there is a net increase to GDP from the addition of illegal aliens, but the increase in GDP is matched by the amount of GDP that goes to the illegals, so there is no net increase in GDP for the natives (and any earlier immigrants). However, the distribution of GDP among the natives (and any earlier immigrants) changes dramatically, with literally hundreds of billions of dollars of GDP per year moving from the lower and middle classes to the highest of the upper classes, mostly due to lower wages for all who depend on working for their income. I honestly am not sure it factors into this transfer, but I agree that one result is higher welfare use by illegals, as well as additional welfare use by natives and earlier immigrants who find the welfare state better than taking crappier wages (a double whammy). I have read estimates that the current amnesty/immigration surge proposal would result in a similar switch worth $100 billion per year. People like Sheldon Adelson and Mark Zuckerberg push amnesty and immigration with big money because they make bank on it. I hate to think I would betray my countrymen, but in another context I would gladly spend millions for a relatively sure shot at billions. And the same leftists who push immigration decry the increasing polarization of income and wealth in the U.S.! They are causing it! The bleepin’ frauds!

      • Bossman

        If you really understood economics, that doesn’t mean a damn thing. The important question is, will they make you end up on welfare and why?

    • Extropico

      The proper standard in economic terms is not gross GDP increase, but per capita GDP. That will be lower with the amnesty.

      • Bossman

        If amnesty keeps inflation low, then it is a good thing for the economy. An economy consists of land, labor and capital. The USA has lots of land and lots of cheap labor and the U.S. Dollar is the world’s reserve currency. In terms of the good life, anyone with half a brain can still make it in the USA.

        • Extropico

          No. Stop printing too much money that increases real estate prices and rents for all. There are billions of poor laborers overseas that exert a downward pressure on inflation. We don’t need our culture destroyed and the constitution burnt to keep inflation low. What a canard.

          • Bossman

            With all this printing of money from thin air, the only thing that can keep the Dollar supreme is low inflation. Most other countries do not have low inflation.

    • Bossman

      Mexico is an up and coming nation. Billions of Dollars in investments from around the world are pouring into Mexico every year. According to the experts, Mexico’s economy will be in the top ten in the coming decades. Mexico cannot be isolated from the rest of North America.

  • Zaporizhian Sich

    Obama hasn’t nearly as much to destroy the Republican Party as the Boshevik/Democrats would like the sheeple to believe. Indeed, the Republicans themselves deserve much of the credit, and one major factor in their decline is their suicidal push for Amnesty, open border, cheap labor and white genocide. They lost me forever as a voter.

    • Any scorn you can heap on the open borders traitors of the Stupid Party is fine by me.

      But also remember that there’s another political party. Not a one of its Senators voted against Gang Bangers of Eight. Not even two in particular (McCaskill, Donnelly) that pretended to be immigration patriots in the past.

      • Zaporizhian Sich

        You mean the Democrats? They aren’t getting my vote. White Americans are losing more and more no matter if the Democrats or Republicans win, because both are wings of the same genocidal, anti-white, anti-western civilization dirty bird.

  • TheCogitator

    The following quotes sum it up. The Democrats beat the Republicans at buying votes. The more votes they buy, the more entrenched their position. Legalizing a bunch of Mexicans should pretty much be the end of that game — if it isn’t already. On top of that there are Republicans playing the same game. Working whites will be the big losers.

    “The American Republic will endure until the day Congress discovers that it can bribe the public with the public’s money” — Alexis de Tocqueville

    “A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the majority discovers it can vote itself largess out of the public treasury. After that, the majority always votes for the candidate promising the most benefits with the result the democracy collapses because of the loose fiscal policy ensuing, always to be followed by a dictatorship, then a monarchy.” — Elmer T Peterson

    • Republicans could also buy votes, if they knew what they were doing.

      Steve Sailer calls it “affordable family formation.” Use all manners of public policy to make it easy for white people to start families.

      • Stentorian_Commentator

        Good point about Sailer. That chart he has that brings together two seemingly disparate statistics, for each state of the U.S. the average or median number of years white women have been married, and the results of the presidential election in that state, reveals an apparently powerful relationship. There is an almost perfect dividing line between the states, with states where white women have been married longer going to the GOP candidate, and those where they have been married less going to the hard leftist candidate. And that dividing line has kept up over a number of elections, although it has necessarily shifted due to differing election results. I infer from the results that the longer a white woman is married (presumably to the same guy, who will for the most part be a white guy), the more she sees herself as part of an economic and social team with her husband, so what’s good for her white male husband is good for her, therefore the votes for the GOP. So the leftists knew what they were doing when they promoted easy divorce, screwing outside of marriage, and taxing productive families to subsidize unemployed sluts and their bastard children.

        • It’s even more simple than that. Since 2000, in Presidential politics, Republicans are the party of the white non-Jewish traditional nuclear family (adults involved therein), and the Democrats are the party of everyone else. Who wins is based on who turns out, “undecideds” and “moderates” are largely a thing of the past.

          There are many creative ways for the Republican Party to help its voting base, and to flood expensive blue areas with white families to turn them red. For instance, public housing in San Francisco for non-rich white families only. To solve the school problem, the President could sign an executive order that disallows Federal law enforcement from enforcing judicial decisions relating to school desegregation, so that schools in NAM-heavy areas can become segregated again and white parents could actually use them.

          It only starts there.

          But apparently, I’m one of the few people left in this world who can actually think and think outside of boxes.

          • Sick of it

            There are quite a few of us, but we have little say in how our respective governments are run, as the criminals in power have a different plan in mind.

  • kjh64

    I notice the Daily Mail says 17 million, not 11-12 million. Really, though it’s about 35-40 million. The Republicans only have themselves to blame. They are the party of the rich and wanted illegal immigration because their “big business” masters wanted it to drive down wages and get dirt cheap labor. They are right though, amnesty will destroy the Republican party because the Democrats will ALWAYS give more handouts. The autopsy on the Republican party will say “cause of death-the desire for cheap labor for businesses and our pandering to amnesty in the hopes the Mexicans will vote for us.”

  • ricpic

    The Republican Party is no defense against anything Obama & Co. has in store for us. In that sense worse is better, because though there is no hope at all for traditional white Americans in America, extreme suffering may tear America apart and out of the chaos a white nation may emerge on some part of the territory of the former United States. I emphasize may. The odds will be long against that outcome but in our present state the odds are impossible. Our present condition has to get worse first.

So, destroy the Republican party and white people have no political representation and are at the mercy of the Nation of Islam, La Raza, NAACP, Mecha and a host of other hate crazed black and brown groups who seek to steal all of our wealth before seeking our genocide.

    The Democrats trying to destroy the Republican party in order to have permanent one party majority rule ala the Chinese communist party? Nah, perish the thought, on the bright side secession movements will become serious.

    • Maybe that’s what Democrats want, but I’m going to drop a fancy phrase on you.

      Homeostatic equilibrium.

      Let’s say amnesty does pass, we’re flooded with non-whites, and the Republicans as we know them now go extinct. Eventually, the political center will readjust within the one party Democrat monolith. Proof of that being a very possible scenario can already be found in major American cities that have substantial populations of both whites and non-whites. There is on paper one party (Democrats), but there are really two parties: The white liberal SWPL Democrats and the black Democrats, with non-white non-black racial groups as wild cards.

  • sbuffalonative

    I don’t understand how this article makes it seem that the Republicans have been caught off guard on immigration when Rove, the Bushs, and the Republican members of the Gang of Snakes (among many others) were out front fighting for reform?
    Don’t tell me the Republicans are going to play, ‘we didn’t see that coming’ when they were in the forefront.

    • Jesse James

      The Bush family is playing lets turn our family into Amertizos so we can be a political power for ever and ever and ever.

  • MBlanc46

    This is not a Dem-Repub binary. It’s the Dems and elite Repubs versus a small group of populist Repubs. The business elites that support the elite Repubs are the folks who hire the immigrants (whether it’s a meat-packer or roofing contractor hiring Mexicans or a Silicon Valley outfit hiring Indians). To see it as merely a party-political opposition is to misunderstand what’s going on.

    • It makes me wonder, where are the populist lib Democrats? It shouldn’t be surprising to me that not a single Senate Democrat voted against GB8, and the beancounting in the House is that if some sort of amnesty-style bill actually comes to a vote, the number of Democrats that vote against it will be so few as to be in the single digits.

      • MBlanc46

        I don’t think that they exist anymore. Even those who style themselves as supporters of the working class lost touch with the actual working class decades ago. The soi-disant left is entirely consumed by identity politics and multiculturalism now.

      • Jesse James

        Now that is a good damn question.

        • V-Dare didn’t get involved in that Mourdock-Donnelly Senate race in Indiana because both had good immigration records or answered immigration questionnaires correctly. Well, Donnelly won and look at what happened.

          Another one on that woulda-coulda-shoulda list is Claire McCaskill (grrrrrrr). She voted and acted right during the last amnesty fight in 2007. I was wondering though at the time whether she was actually right headed on the issue or simply voting no because the President that wanted it was a “Republican.” Well, we see what he did this year, therefore, we have our answer.

        • Sick of it

          Bernie is a Socialist, so he will vote in favor of amnesty. Not sure about Pryor, but I expect most politicians from Arkansas to vote for amnesty.

          • Jesse James

            I understand that Bernie is very left wing but he is one of the few Senators who has actually expressed concern about what immigration is doing to working class wages.

  • Chasmania

    This most definitely a hand in glove situation with big Business Repubs teaming up with the ‘Transform America’ progressives. It’s so important now to keep fighting and getting the RINOs out of office at every opportunity.
    More so now than ever I believe the GOP needs to be put down like a sick animal, and a new Conservative party raised from its ashes. First thing on the agenda: making sure dreck like Rove and his ilk aren’t allowed to so much as breath the same air as the new parties leadership.

  • kenfrombayside

    Keep the pressure on your reps in congress. Giving 11 – 30 million (nobody knows for sure) criminal lawbreakers legalization pure insanity. Plus, they could sponsor their relatives; that would bring the total up to about 50 million aliens in our midst. Of course, these new citizens will vote for the vile democrats and their socialist giveaways. Most of them will be unskilled, uneducated, low IQ etc. Stop this outrageous bill now. Don’t sit on the sidelines.You are not wasting your time. The American people don’t want this bill. You have to do all you can do to stem the third world assault:
    – Contact your 2 US Senators and rep in congress.
    – after biz hours, leave a message on your DC rep’s voicemail. All US Senators have multiple offices so it would be a good idea to hit all of the. Remember, be civil and don’t threaten
    – go to NUMBERSUSA then go to the take action button. You will be able to send faxes to your 2 US Senators and congressional for free. (I also gave a $50 donation).
    – use Business Reply envelopes to state your opposition to America’s insane immigration policies and the proposed amnesty. Don’t give the parties any money.
    – join an immigration group like FAIR. Strength thru numbers!
    – go to the RNC & DNC sites to email them.
    – Use the media: call a talk radio program; write a letter to your local paper. If the media outlet is liberal, then talk about economic impact of massive third world immigration.
    – text everybody in your cell phone queue now.

    • Jesse James

      Absolutely Ken, thanks for the no BS list on what people can do to fight back against the tidal wave. Too often we just spin our wheels pissing and moaning, you gave us a well thought out action list.

    • Bossman

      One of the rules in the new legislation is that family members will be limited to spouses and children of the new immigrants.

    • 1. Don’t bother with the Senate now. Focus on the House. If the House passes any kind of bill, and the hope is they don’t, then we can start calling Senators again.

      2. Call House members at one of their local district offices, not the national switchboard. You’ll have better luck getting through that way.

      3. Know who you’re calling and tailor your message around that. If you’re calling someone who is absolutely on our side, e.g. Steve King, Lou Barletta, thank them and pat them on the back for the good job they’re doing. If you’re calling a wobbly Republican, remind them of all the bad things that happen to Republicans because all these non-whites vote Democrat. If you’re calling any Democrat, use Democrat hobby horse issues, such as working middle class wages, the environment, gay/feminist rights, etc. and tell them that opening up the gates to millions of non-whites hurts those things.

      4. Be polite, never scream, never cuss.

      5. Phone only, no e-mails. E-mails are cheaper than dirt, staffers won’t really read them. They just get too many. If you want to snail mail your own critter, fine. They really pay attention to snails these days, do staffers.

      6. Pretend to be someone from that Congress/wo/man’s district when you call him or her. If you’re calling from a land line phone, Star-67 blocks out your phone number if the other end is checking caller ID.

      7. This trick isn’t for everyone. If you’re calling a black congress/wo/man, use a device that changes your tone of voice to a deep baritone level, (those doodads only work on land line phones), and speak sort of ebonics-ey, and your spiel should be that mass immigration hurts black jobs.

  • Jesse James

    Yes and this is exactly why the “conservative” argument that unlimited political spending by rich folk and corporations is a “free speech” issue is completely wrong. What other than money gives Zuckerberg the right to buy a win on the immigration issue that is of dire consequence to every citizen of this country? How can the little guy with $20 in his wallet compete with Zuckerberg’s $50 million. We aren’t a representative democracy we are a Dollarocracy.

      We need to figure out how to financially hurt Suckerbird as much as possible and then just keep sticking it to him to he backs off ,the boycott is our best tool ,we don’t need Facebook just dump it !

    Why are headlines always phrased in terms of Reps being “afraid” of new Dem voters instead of Dems coveting, recruiting and importing new voters?

    As much as I hate the phrase, this is one of those classic “Ya think!?!?” moments. The GOP rank and file might actually finally get it, especially those in states like Texas and Arizona. If amnesty gets passed, then it does not matter what else is in the GOP platform, because the hard leftists will have the votes of the new citizens and most of the new welfare recipients, both immigrant and native, and whites will abandon the GOP (just like they did in 2012 when Mittens dropped immigration enforcement after the primaries). The GOP platform would become less important than the Green Rainbow Party platform.
    As for BO hating whites, I think the evidence is now overwhelming that he does. In large ways and small, he sticks it to whites at every opportunity. This is another illustration why there used to be laws against miscegenation. The resulting mulatto does not bring people together, or honor both sides of his ancestry, but instead becomes sullen, hateful, and spiteful no matter what his white parent and grandparents do for him. There’s no way a white in his or her right mind would want a child, especially a daughter, to screw around with blacks.

    The republicans will give Obama everything he wants with no fight. The party of cowards.

    The issue is, Mr. Goodlatte, is that you can’t create your own grateful constituency – well you could if you appealed to your base and the very close to that 4.5 million people who win elections for you that STAYED HOME last time refusing to vote for Romney because he ignored them, taking their vote for granted. That would be middle class white dudes and a lot of their wives and grown children. Reagan tried creating that grateful constituency and failed – he gave them amnesty and they voted for the other guy.

    • WR_the_realist

      Reagan later said that the 1986 amnesty was the biggest mistake he ever made. He was right about that, too bad he wasn’t right sooner.

    Slavery? Socialism? Genocide? How soon? Are you heading for the hills yet?

  • Gossip is that Boehner was either going to retire from leadership or from Congress period at the end of this term.

    I won’t fault Ted Cruz and Mike Lee one bit. Their only mistake was in relying on the Boehner-McConnell surrender monkey caucus to have his back, which was the prerequisite to the staredown working for them. I can tell you one of the reason why the RINOs caved: There is an undercurrent of CW in the Beltway that a Republican victory in the staredown would have pretty much meant that Ted Cruz was the next President of the United States. I personally don’t want that to happen (for immigration reasons), and I also don’t think it’s that simple. But that was the mentality. The reason a lot of RINOs wanted to surrender was because they don’t want Ted Cruz to have a credible Presidential campaign, and figured their waving the white flag would hurt him and help whatever noxious RINO they do want to be President.

    • Sick of it

      I agree with much of what you said, but blame Ted Cruz for backing down unequivocally. I also blame Paul and Lee for sitting back and letting this all get rammed through. Politics and politeness are meaningless when people are destroying the very fabric of one’s nation.

      • What could he have done? The staredown strategy required that the House Republicans remain united, yet 37% of them voted for the shutdown deal. If someone pulls the rug out from under your feet, it’s kinda hard to stand firm.

        • Sick of it

          And Senator McCarthy never should have opened his mouth while this country was infested with Communist scum at the highest levels…people with REAL convictions don’t just say ‘Sure man, go ahead’. Obviously I doubt virtually anyone in Congress has real convictions, other than those found in the Communist Manifesto.

  • Herman

    I think Obama is trying to destroy White America rather than the Republican Party.
    My impression is he hates Whites move than he loves Blacks.

  • Sick of it

    Along that same line of thought, it is quite amusing to read what ancient Egyptians had to say about foreign peoples. They were not politically correct in the slightest.

  • Sick of it

    The term neo-Nazi is interesting when applied by people who are extreme socialists, like the Nazis and the Italian fascists and the Bolsheviks. Traditionalist Americans who believe in our actual Constitution, our actual history, our actual way of life are being demonized by foreigners who worship Che Guevara!

    For starters, no amnesty/immigration without:

    I’m so sick of all this Beltway garbage. This is exactly why I stopped supporting the duopoly. I joined the Constitution Party, but please don’t tell me the odds; I have principles, and on a practical not, a harder and faster end will likely bring about a more powerful rebirth.

    By the way, BOEHNER IS NOT SPINELESS. He’s part of the same establishment that wants amnesty (and more immigration all around) even if it’s for slightly different reasons.

    The real spineless Whites are the American people for not speaking out or standing up for what’s right whether it be out of selfish fear, willful ignorance, apathy, or self-loathing.
