Budget-Deal Vapors

Major Garrett, National Journal, December 17, 2013

The budget deal is a testament to the politics of exhaustion. And exhaust.

{snip}

The contours of the deal thus established, the House passed the budget deal and fled the Capitol for the exhaust fumes of waiting airliners at neighboring airports. The Senate is about to do the same, leaving behind vapor trails of bipartisan peace on earth and good will toward appropriators.

Of course, the path to this two-year spending cease-fire was paved over the bowed backs of conservative advocacy groups—most aligned with tea-party sentiments, some that popped up to profit from them—who helped create the House Republican majority in 2010 and protect it in 2012.

House Speaker John Boehner twice called the conservatives’ bluff and bulldozed them. It was a first, and the relish with which Boehner dispatched his conservative critics (and the not-so-quiet cloakroom and corridor huzzahs he received from rank-and-file Republicans) raises this juicy question: Did it foreshadow a breakthrough on immigration?

Immigration is, after all, the last remaining domestic priority President Obama and Boehner share. Obama and Boehner’s relationship, while not warm, is less confrontational and more routinely civil. {snip}

This doesn’t mean immigration can or will pass. But irritants of the past are precisely that. New possibilities have presented themselves, and the political and tactical climate may, several months hence, be such that Obama and Boehner find passing immigration reform irresistible.

Obama has already sent signals to this effect. He no longer demands the House pass the Senate immigration bill. After hinting in July he would accept a piecemeal approach, he repeated the statement again in September and did so unequivocally in November. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi had to reluctantly climb on board, just as she had to do on the budget deal. {snip} Obama may well need a significant policy victory in 2014, and immigration will be the only live option. It’s no coincidence he reinforced his willingness to accept a piecemeal approach on immigration in the midst of cyclone Obamacare.

Boehner signaled back with the hiring in December of Rebecca Tallent, a former chief of staff to Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., and a key player in drafting the 2007 immigration bill Boehner relentlessly demonized to defeat. Top Obama advisers now believe they have an immigration interlocutor in Boehner’s office. One of the president’s closest advisers told me it’s possible Boehner would have hired Tallent for cynical reasons (to appear more aggressive on reform than he actually is), but there is zero chance Tallent would be so duped. Her treatise on the road to immigration reform speaks for itself.

Tallent’s role gives House Republicans something they’ve never had since 2010—a staffer who knows immigration policy and politics on both sides of the aisle and has the confidence and respect of the White House and Democrats. Until Tallent arrived, immigration legislation was written by Virginia Rep. Bob Goodlatte’s able Judiciary subcommittee staff, many of them holdovers from former immigration hard-liner Rep. Lamar Smith, R-Texas. Smith—and to a certain extent Goodlatte—have specialized in drafting legislation just conservative enough for House Democrats to rebel. Tallent has the expertise, if so empowered by Boehner and the GOP conference, to drive a hard bargain that pulls Democrats farther than they would prefer, but not past the breaking point of compromise.

{snip}

Boehner has to wait for the bulk of primary season to pass (May or June) before serious immigration work can begin. By then, much of the legislation can be written and the calendar cleared for action in the summer. The House GOP leader on the budget deal, Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., may emerge as a key figure. Ryan’s pedigree is not on immigration policy, but conference conservatives will follow him. {snip}

Interestingly, Ryan waded straight into the immigration debate Monday on a Wisconsin radio station, defining the limits of acceptable reform.

“First we must have the border security, and independently verified,” Ryan told WTMJ in Milwaukee (listen here.). “First we must have the interior enforcement like E-Verify in place and independently verified before the other parts of the law that they want to go into place go into place,” he said. “So it’s not a ‘trust, hope, and promise.’ It’s a ‘get what we want, verify it’s there.’ Then the rest of the law can be triggered.”

Immigration-reform advocates with ties to the White House see Ryan’s outline as more specific and enforceable than the “triggers” in the Senate immigration bill. They interpret Ryan calling for six or eight separate bills (the now-agreed upon piecemeal approach), starting with border security and interior enforcement followed by the other components of reform—legalization, path to citizenship, agricultural/seasonal workers, and the Dream Act. This process bears a striking resemblance to Tallent’s aforementioned roadmap.

As for the benefits of passing immigration reform, Ryan sounded bullish. “Guaranteed border security, guaranteed interior enforcement, no amnesty—then I think that’s productive. I think that’s in our interest. I think that’s good for our country.”

    People of our persuasion have no representation. The people who used to represent Americans are having their statues torn down.

  • D.B. Cooper

    Have you ever noticed that a “compromise” usually means the Republican Party siding with the democrats, and never the other way around?

    THIS is the most dangerous enemy YOU have. Republicans like John Boehner and John McCain are much bigger threats to your future than the Clintons, Obama, Pelosi, and the daily flash mob in your city. For those of you who live in Ohio, you need to get rid of him ASAP, and a lot of everyone’s problems will be solved.

    • Strike_Team

      The people giving orders to Boehner, Obama, everyone in DC are our main problem. The politicians are traitors, that isn’t an argument. They have more love for the dollar and having fun right now than any care for whites or the future. Or in some cases they are afraid of dark secrets turning up in the media, and that media is run by the string pullers. Ever wonder why so many politicians get in trouble for bizarre sexual and financial situations? It is because people who indulge in this type of thing or who have tendencies for them, are the ones allowed to be politicians, big time politicians, in the first place. If you’re clean, you’ll have a tough time getting “in”. If you can blackmail someone, they’re easier to control.

      • Laika

        The politicians are just hacks, in it until they can retire rich. They’ll kick the can down the road and make it someone else’s problem
        You are dead right about those behind the curtain who give the orders that are the most dangerous. Boehner, Obama, McCain, the Clintons, Pelosi, all are interchangeable working for the same masters.

          A rock-solid argument for term limits; no more careerism.

  • Puggg

    All the enforcement Paul Ryan says we need, we can do it right now, because the laws already exist.

    What he means by “enforcement first” is “amnesty first” and a whole bunch of new work visas handed out first and enforcement never.

    • Pro_Whitey

      It’s kind of hard to enforce border security when every other ICE employee is a anchor baby mexican or the product of “legal” immigration.

      • Greg Thomas

        This is so very true. Who do you think the anchor babies charged with securing our borders are going to side with when it comes to defending against their illegal invading La Raza!

        • bilderbuster

          You mean “Who they’ve always sided with”.

        • LeGrandDerangement

          I’ve always been puzzled by this La Raza. How can the product of 2 races be considered a third?

    • LeGrandDerangement

      Passing laws draws more attention than enforcing them.

  • JohnEngelman

    The Republican Party exists in order to advance the interests of employers and investors. These people benefit from a flood of low wage immigrants that enables them to lower wages for American citizens.

    • RisingReich

      I suppose it has nothing to do with the genocide of Whites, does it?

      • JohnEngelman

        I will believe that white genocide is happening when I smell the smoke from the crematoria.

        • Hunter Morrow

          God, an asian loving HolyCost believer. The tens of millions of violent crimes against Whites isn’t enough for you? Never heard of the Dirty War?

        • Alexandra1973

          Encouraging miscegenation is a form of genocide.

          So’s encouraging abortion, homosexuality, and euthanasia. TPTB want fewer people on this planet, especially whites (and I would also say Jews, that’s why anti-Semitism is being ramped up–the Jews who’ve sold out to their Caesar aren’t doing their people any favors).

          Why whites? Because we’re the ones most able to figure out how badly we’re being hosed.

          • JohnEngelman

            Three problems are facing the entire human species. First, the human population is growing. Second, natural resources are being depleted. Third, computer technology is reducing the economic value of jobs that can be learned by people of below average and even average intelligence.

            Because the races differ in average intelligence, the last problem is more serous for some than for others. It is more of a problem for white Gentiles than it is for Ashkenazi Jews and Orientals.

            Many white Gentiles who are facing grim economic prospects would rather blame their problems on genocide and race displacement than acknowledge that in an increasingly competitive economy they have little of value to offer employers.

          • M&S

            Mr. Engleman,

            >
            Three problems are facing the entire human species. First, the human population is growing.
            >
            Mainly blacks and South Asians who are among the lowest IQ members of the planet. Low IQ growth = low ‘evolution of higher intelligence’ because the kinds of societies that a race sets up reflects their genetic potential.
            >
            Second, natural resources are being depleted.
            >
            Whites number 150 million out of a 320 million population. ‘Older Nations’ like China and India have played the Go Game to the extent that they have dominated their environmental habitat by filling it to exclusion of social advancement. The resulting entropy also doesn’t reflect well upon intelligent evolution displacing all precursors because those who have power can block those who don’t and those who have reprorductive discipline (_only whites_) can only protect themselves if they are allowed to acknowledge that the superiority of their Genetic Algorithm extends beyond intelligence and towards longterm conservation of resources.
            On the explicitly ‘who burns more’ level, Mexican households have almost twice the disposable garbage as those of the nominally wealthier U.S..
            Where blacks, whose IQ averages 10 points above retarded, at the nominal winners of the Population Gain Olympics, set to move from 9% to 30% of society by 2100, the question becomes one of simple numbers. How can ‘smart people’ not realize that the fewer they are, the less it serves corporate socialism to serve them and not the larger customer base?
            >
            Third, computer technology is reducing the economic value of jobs that can be learned by people of below average and even average intelligence.
            >
            Rubbish. Whites are not below or average. Our IQ skew is the widest there is. That said, where is the automation in the service jobs as the creation of anthropomorphic robotics that allows whites to reenter the service economy this nation is creating? Where are THOSE computer intensive technologies now that we have shifted manufacturing overseas sir?
            How ‘smart’ can we be to create a condition where our societies’ real property is own in debt impoverishment because we have moved _of our own will_ our economic engine into the foreign control of our very debt holders? Americans don’t seem to remember that one of the big causes of the Revolution was the refusal by the British to allow machine tools of the early Industrial era out of their sight.

            >
            Because the races differ in average intelligence, the last problem is more serous for some than for others. It is more of a problem for white Gentiles than it is for Ashkenazi Jews and Orientals.
            >
            Be explicit, are you saying that Eskimos and Asians are FORCING us to inject our society with low IQs masses of the Third World? What manner of mind control do they possess to force us to undertake such and endeavor and how is this at all ‘smart’ when their own nations are both intellectually impoverished (China outside the cities is well below 100IQ) and hanging by a Naked Emperor’s thread before the slavering eyes of their enemies (Israel would not exist in ten years if America did not backstop her ‘from a distance’…).

            >
            Many white Gentiles who are facing grim economic prospects would rather blame their problems on genocide and race displacement than acknowledge that in an increasingly competitive economy they have little of value to offer employers.
            >
            Are you including the politicians whose existence as leaders of a white society is readily proven by the fact that the only time other ethnicities vote for them is when they shave another chunk of bleeding meat from the dying body of their own culture?
            Because whites who think that white control (as a wealth class enablement) will exist in a non-white dominated society have only about 30 more years of delusion before they are proven dead wrong on genetics. And perhaps only 10 years before the consumer politics of the ‘American Market Economy’ has no more loan sympathy from a China with her own middle class markets.

            >
            White nationalism resonates for some because our economy is no longer generating well paying jobs for any white Gentile who is willing to work hard.
            >
            See, this makes no sense because it’s clear that there are elements of the white Genetic Algorithm which are massively more adaptively sound than the other Useless Breeder populations you constantly elevate.
            It would also seem that if IQ is not the be all/end all of white supremacy then we should be the ones helping ourselves up rather than making excuses for intelligence deficited populations like blacks and hispanics.
            Your entire argument to me in past discussions has been that Evolution is a stone beach on which only the smartest will have the privilege of leaving their bloody footprints.
            Yet none of the other populations, brought up to our standards of expected SES lifestyle, will have our innate low footprint weight of total population mass and thus NONE of them will be likely to make the journey with as little loss of that mass (as war and suffering and further genetic impoverishment deriving from resource depletion) even as their horde like numbers will INCREASE the likeilihood that whites will go down with them.
            Whites who, by 2100, will be less than 4% of society, a mere 560 million.
            Tell me then sir, how is it at all possible that elevating as inviting in the undisciplined breeder groups, hastening global resource depletion by proliferating consumer culture as environmental contamination and generally putting the population which invented Western Civilization at genetic risk of annihilative blendout is ‘smart’?
            When the alternative is to protect and withhold privileges created by that group, solely for themselves until the ROW at least tries to match our social norms as small economic and population environmental footprint?
            We are setting up stupidity to inherit the world. And that is contrary to your own thesis of intelligence leading the way to an evolved culture.

        • ben no

          The usual dirty-tactic of invalidation (dismissing our feelings, silencing ours concerns) and gas-lighting (denying that anything serious or wrong is happening to us while it’s happening) that you hypocritical racists non-whites frequently practice as a form of emotional abuse on us. I’m afraid to say that murder is not genocide. What is – is when you have the cruel intention to plan and bring about the destruction and foundation of a racial group by any means possible! A silent, bloodless genocide is very much real, especially to those who feel it and are going through it. Not that we expect the selfish, wicked non-whites to understand that anytime soon.

      • Marc Zuckurburg

        I advocate comprehensive immigration reform.

        Comprehensive immigration reform will raise wages and salaries, strengthen national security, prevent terrorism, enhance our domestic crime-fighting ability, ensure that we continue to encourage the best and brightest to partake of the American dream, enhance our competitiveness and our ability to innovate, and make America more prosperous.

        Make my immigration reform comprehensive, please!

      If by “employers and investors” you mean the likes of Sheldon Adelson then I agree with you 100%.

  • The debate between the specifics of enforcement and the specifics of path to citizenship is kabuki theater. What really matters is that any immigration bill passed before 2017, and maybe after depending on who is the next President, will have both a legal forbearance of deportation and millions of new work permits for existing and oncoming illegal aliens. That’s all the illegal aliens themselves really want, and that’s all the el cheapo labor lobby really wants.

  • mobilebay

    As long as illegal immigration is so profitable to Washington, no politician is going to upset the apple cart. They quit representing us a long time ago. We have been “fundamentally exchanged” for illegal aliens.

  • 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.
    IF YOU DO OR SAY NOTHING, YOU ARE PART OF THE PROBLEM….

    • M&S

      No.

      That’s a pressure bandage on a decapitation.

      I’m sorry but the only way democracy driven politics works is if everyone is willing to consider compromise of their position in trade for coalitions of power. In this the desire to (as rewards for) ‘accomplishing something’ often triggers psychopathological obsessive compulsive behaviors which denies any real consideration of whether something that is fought against by all around you should be done at all.

      Race annihilation politics is thus exacerbated by the female ‘compromise as conversation’ talent which keeps needling and bringing the same topic around under different frontmen as labels ‘for discussion’, until the idea is submitted to rather than passed.

      White Americans cannot be counted on to hold out forever or respond as Minute Men to every challenge made against us. We have lives to live, and the lawyers whose living -is- this kind of betrayal lobbying will just get smarter and smarter with every defeat until they find a way to present the argument in a fashion that will not be defiable by procedures or recognized by logic until it is too late.

      What America needs is either a revolution in place or a separation of whites and other ethnicities so that we no longer support their insanity but can continue to find our own genetic destiny forwards unto a future which we own, for good or ill, by and for ourselves.

      ‘Politicians’ who are fixated on what others can give them and not racially aware enough to admit that there is value in what they throw away do not THINK to say: “I want a society like the one I grew up in where my grandchildren look like me and my son or daughter has the same social as genetic advantages that I did.” Thus they do not know what they have until they have lost it.

      Such people must no longer have the opportunity as much as option to betray us because they would only be allowed to look upon our deeds from afar.

      Where you cannot get elected if you are racially aware, there is no hope for our people as our fate but submission, victory or annihilation.

      And I do not choose submission.

    Pay no mind to the weasel words of crypto progressives Boner and Ryan. The “guaranteed” border security claim is a ploy to get fence sitting Republicans to vote yes and will not be enforced no matter what dufus Ryan claims. After this passes and the border isn’t secured then Ryan, Boner and company will feign outrage and hold their usual hearings to fire up the base and get stonewalled by Obama’s minions.

    Besides, after they amnesty 30 million illegals the damage will be done and America will no longer exist, so why guard the border?

    Keep voting for Republicans. They blocked Hart-Cellar and Simpson-Mazzoli and kept the Clinton administration from raising the amount of “legal” immigrants. They defunded voluntary agencies that are religious organizations that get paid to bring in non-Whites.
    They ended the “green card lottery” and prevented disastrous wars that burden our country with coffins, bankrupted coffers and millions of “refugees” and their children.

    They also closed the border and said no to work visas and stopped GATT and NAFTA.

    Non Whites are preferred to Whites at massive corporations not because of some innate superiority, as you suggest, but because they think less and are more likely to favor a socialist government.

    Corporations like intelligent people who can think. That is why they hire so many Jews and Orientals.

    Corporations oppose socialism, and big government in general. If I need to explain, you do not understand the definitions of “corporation” and “socialism.”

  • JohnEngelman

    By importing mass numbers of non Whites, wages can be driven down and Whites can be replaced with less intrepid people who basically want to be ordered about.

    – Oboe

    You are right that immigration reduces wages for American citizens. That is why I am in favor of restricting immigration.

    It is a good idea for everyone to follow boss’s orders, whether they want to or not.

  • JohnEngelman

    White Nationalism is a response to the hypocrisy of our society that says Whites are worthless at best and evil at worst, while non Whites are some kind of godlike oversoul who make reality perfect by merely existing (diversity).

    – Oboe

    No one says that whites are worthless. What matters is for whites to perform and behave as well as non whites. If they can’t they get fired and replaced by non whites.

  • ben no

    This Engelman is a c**t. He is so obviously anti-white, he
    can barely conceal it for much longer and it’s threatening to spill at any moment. He tries to justify the beautification that not-whites receive, at the horrible expense of white numbers of course, when we mix. And dares to makes out that the benefit is equal all round.Twisted f**k! Furthermore, he tries to tells us that we should be “rightfully” replaced when we don’t perform to high standards. Like it’s a virtuous thing to be punished harshly as white and underachieving!

    The more I think about it, the more I realize that these non-whites are truly wicked. Like completely void of compassion or something.

  • ben no

    There’s nothing “soft” about being forced into minority status in your own nation where everything drastically changes for the worse and for eternity, and never being allowed to even attempt to fight it off. Sort of like being chained the ground and slapped when you scream. I think its very painful, tragic, wicked and an abnormal experience that is bout to result in post-traumatic stress disorder and suicide in a lot whites to come. You see…

  • “Immigration” is a ridiculous word. China, Taiwan and Korea have “Guest-worker immigration” – where the immigrants stay a while then leave. White countries, OTOH, have “citizenship immigration” where all immigrants are treated as future citizens (irrespective of whether they have any skills or not).

    Guess which “immigration” system radically alters the population and is in place in all and only White countries.
