Conservatives Express Anger That Amnesty Not Defunded in Omnibus

Caroline May, Breitbart, December 10, 2014

Conservatives who had wanted to see language to block President Obama’s executive actions inserted into the massive, must-pass government funding bill are expressing frustration and anger at House Republican leadership’s lack of an appetite to fight amnesty now.

“The fix is in, which I’ve been saying all along,” Rep. Matt Salmon said after leaving the GOP’s conference meeting Wednesday morning.

Tuesday night the House Appropriations Committee posted its $1.1 trillion spending package. The measure is expected to receive a vote Thursday. If no funding bill is passed by that night, the government would shut down.

“Promises around here–regardless of who they are made by–don’t seem to mean anything,” Salmon told reporters.

He explained that lawmakers’ phones have been “lighting up” with constituents asking them “do what [they] were elected to do.”

The Arizona lawmaker is spearheading an amendment with other conservative lawmakers to attach an amendment to the funding bill that would prohibit funding for Obama’s executive amnesty. His spokesman estimated to Breitbart News that the amendment currently has 55 co-sponsors. The amendment is, however, unlikely to receive a vote.

Leadership’s spending package instead is designed to fund most of the government through September, but only fund the Department of Homeland Security into February, when Republicans will have more reinforcements in the Senate to pursue a fight against Obama’s executive actions on immigration.

“Without a threat of a government shutdown, this sets up a direct challenge to the president’s unilateral actions on immigration when we have new majorities in both chambers of Congress,” House Speaker John Boehner explained to reporters.

“What is there to suggest that a few months from now you will oppose the amnesty that you have today funded?” Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL), also a co-sponsor of the defund amendment, asked.

“My biggest concern is that there are a significant number of Republicans who support amnesty, they just don’t support the way in which the president did it. That is a big distinction,” the Alabama conservative said.

Some of the ability to fight Obama on executive amnesty will be lost if House Republicans go along with allowing it to be funded, if only for a short time, Rep. Steve King (R-IA) argues.

“My point is you either defend the Constitution when the president violates it or you lose some of your ability and traction to do so later,” King said. “I think its better to fight now than it is later. So therefore I have taken an oath to uphold the Constitution, that’s for this Congress and I expect to be standing on the floor January 6th taking another one. I don’t want to have voted to fund the lawless, unconstitutional act by the president and then I could take an oath and mean it.”

Rep. Tim Huelskamp (R-KS), another defund amendment co-sponsor, said stopping amnesty is “the issue of the day,” saying the executive actions will already be implemented come next year when leadership hopes to have the fight against them.

“That’s probably impossible to undo it in late February. This idea we’re going to take it up next year, it’s too late if you’re going to wait until after the DACA has been implemented,” he argued.

      Yeah but it works 99% of the time, at least give them credit for that.

      • Sick of it

        Taking a quick look at an IQ chart may explain why.

        • Realist

          That’s for sure. The median raw IQ score of the norming sample is defined as IQ 100. Most Americans think that an IQ of 100 isn’t too bad, what they don’t consider is that since it is normed and a test of corn dog IQ’s using the same procedure would give the same result…..IQ 100. It depends on what you use as a base.

      What a marvellous man Joe McCarthy was. I’ve been listening to M Stanton Evans’s biography of Joe. I hope to see a statue honouring him one day.

      • Roninf9

        The day Senator McCarthy gets a statue and his true story taught to school children is the day we know we’ve won.

      • His name is a political cuss word now. But when he was alive and kickin’, he was one of the most popular politicians in the country and had a huge following.

  • libertarian1234

    This entire affair has nothing to do with amnesty and everything to do with pursuing ethnic purging of white people via a form of genocide, which is so blatantly criminal it’s amazing it continues on unchecked.

    We’re not talking about giving work permits to people who sneaked into the country. The issue here is one in which this administration has actively encouraged foreigners to move here strictly for the purpose of watering down the influence of a majority white population, by self-hating whites and non-white militant activists within this government, the press, academia, and the entertainment industry, because they feel it is payback for some kind of deranged thinking they have of what all white people need payback for. They see us all guilty for just being white, yet they speak of the evils of stereo-typing out of the other sides of their mouths.

    It is, in effect, an attack on this country, its’ history, its founders, and its way of life, no different in the outcome than what would be the result of a military invasion from other countries. It is unequivocally a war.

    • Whitetrashgang

      Make no mistake they is no confusion on their part, this was planned more then 60 years ago.

    • NoMosqueHere

      It’s not a war unless whites join the battle. They won’t even join the issue let alone take to the streets. The blacks and their allies march, protest, and riot and loot. Whites won’t take action.

      • Who Me?

        Maybe one reason Whites won’t take action is because the Left has been brainwashing them from birth for at least 60 years. Via television, via their entire formative years in school from the age of five years old, then doubling down in college. Then sticking it to them in a thousand different ways, both large and small in every aspect of their lives. Telling them they need to be tolerant and to love everybody, that everybody is the same, except for Whites of course, who are born evil racists. Telling them they are second-class citizens because of something some other White people did 150+ years ago–who may or may not have been their ancestors–it doesn’t matter, they were White, so you’re guilty. The “poor, underprivileged minority” is entitled to special perks in college enrollment, job selection and tax breaks and every other kind of credit, for nothing more than having a darker hide, but Whites MUST be colorblind.
        Mind you, this has been going on for 60 years, even people who are currently elderly can’t remember a time when Whites weren’t being made into second-class citizens in their own country. They’ve been taught not to take action on their own behalf, that it’s wrong and evil and racist to even try to escape and THINK about what is being done to them.

        • NoMosqueHere

          It’s been a problem since the emancipation proclamation. The slaves should have been sent back to africa. Many americans wanted just that but the “elites” of the time thought it would be too costly. Talk about penny wise and pound foolish. The same bad logic prevents us from building a secure fence on the southern boarder. Maybe whitey’s problem is he’s too cheap.

      • Realist

        Numerous times this country was undulated with low IQ Europeans to provide cheap labor for the elites..

    • kenfrombayside

      More of us have to lash out against these policies that are destroying us.The reason for this invasion is simple: most Americans remain silent, don’t vote, and spend a disproportionate amount of time engaged doing nothing, like watching NFL football. Contact your US Rep and 2 Senators; get to the polls to vote against the traitorous demRATS; return fundraising letters saying you will not give until the border is sealed and our unique Anglo heritage saved; prepare your meals and do your own gardening; go to NUMBERSUSA to send faxes to our alleged leaders; and join real immigration reform groups such as FAIR. Our enemies are at war with us, and we have to fight back. If you say or do nothing, you are part of the problem.

    • Sick of it

      This is a military invasion by foreigners. These people bring violence with them. They form their own paramilitary organizations (i.e. gangs and cartels).

        I found the following online yesterday adjunctive to an article reporting a dozen or so students found beheaded by drug cartel connected police in Guerrero. [I think it was Guerrero.]

      Don’t assume this is about logic, reason or fairness. It’s about taking what’s yours and making it theirs. Its about ganging up on Whitely by the Blacks, Hispanics and yes, a lot of Jews, and worrying about the mess latter on. Winning is just about defeating you. Then they assume it will be roses for them.

      Yes, we guessed right, they are deceitful hypocrites and have hated us while pretending otherwise.

      They lie, cheat, abuse, plead and appeal to your compassion, try and use guilt and shame. Try and get you fired and try and put you in jail for speaking politely. They attack you but try and seduce your woman to make a wedge between you and her or poison your child’s mind against you through school, college and university. They’ll avoid reason and fair argument because that would at least expose what they want. They are not going to bow to our greater mean IQ and peacabillity. They want to beat us.

      The though of winning goes only so far as defeating you. They don’t care if they go down as well so long as you go down to their level and lower.

      Yes by all means use logic to expose their contradictions and discredit them for the sake of fence sitter but know that its all about.

  • MBlanc46

    We’re fools if we leave it to the politicians to resolve mass immigration. We need to make our views known in public.

    • Bossman

      The USA does not have mass immigration. It only looks that way because the whole world wants to come to these parts. The USA also can’t shut its doors because it has global commitments and alliances; only very small countries with no much global ties can afford to have a zero immigration policy.

            At least 20 percent of Israel’s population is non jewish. Many illegals reside in tel aviv, such that virtually no jews live in certain sections of the city. Israel has the same problems that other western nations have with immigration, legal and illegal.

          • Alex Miller

            Most of these people descend from individuals who inhabited the prior territory of the modern state of when it was established. In an analogous sense we granted all Native Americans citizenship back in the 192Os but at the same time restricted immigration to Europeans to ensure they would remain the dominant ethnic group. Israel restricts immigration to Jews (by ethnicity and/or religion) and their spouses to ensure that they remain the country’s dominant demographic group.

Every Jew from anywhere is welcomed there. As for Japan, it is a case of who cares. This is a country that has had 2 atom bombs dropped on them because they wanted to invade all of the pacific and then enslave any one who was not Japanese.

          • Alex Miller

            But how would a zero immigration policy be a form of racism and national chauvinism ? Has the USA ever entered into any kind of treaty that obligates it to admit immigrants?

            My soliloquy about USA immigration policy is very short and simple. It should go back to as it before 1965. Take a look at the table that I’m providing; you will see that Canada and Mexico and West Europe were the most favored countries.

          • Greg Thomas

            Sure there would be a need. Mexicans prefer to get their goods for free, with no obligations or strings attached. You know that. Besides, mexico enjoys the best “quota” system of any country. If they can make it across the border undetected, they are home free. How are you going to beat that!

            This country already has a generous “legal immigration” policy that admits close to 1 million third worlders into this country annually. We have no need, legally or morally, to allow 25 million illegals anything but a ticket home.

            Moreover, the rest of the world will “co-operate” with this country because we prop up their dysfunctional governments with billions of dollars of foreign aid each year.

            I find it interesting how every other country on this planet is allowed to dictate their own immigration policies, without accusations of “racism and national chauvism.”

        Your statement is one of the most idiotic I have ever read.

        1. The USA already takes in half of the people in the world that immigrate it another country. That is mass immigration.

        2. We don’t need to allow a single other person into this country and we would be fine. Global commitments and alliances as well as trade do not require immigration. Ask the Japanese and the Koreans. The Mexican too for that matter.

      • WR_the_realist

        100,000 people immigrate here legally every month. And tens of thousands more come illegally. You don’t call that mass immigration? China is a big country with far less immigration. A big country can have very little immigration if it wants to, and if it has leaders who are interested in what’s best for their own country. I will happily end every foreign commitment and alliance if that’s what it takes to slash immigration.

      • Albert

        The time for immigration is when a nation actually needs more people (say for a lack of labor). We have an ailing economy and more people than jobs available. Bringing in more people isn’t the solution.

          Taxpayers and wealthy leaving, tax receivers, criminals, destroyers, and drug cartels flooding in.
          Only Silicon Valley, where low IQ, unskilled mestizos and meso-americans have no place maintains its wealth.
          Anyone who lives in CA can see the direction our south of the border invaders have taken us. Ruination.

    • Albert

      The time for immigration is when a nation actually needs more people (say for a lack of labor). We have an ailing economy and more people than jobs available. Bringing in more people isn’t the solution.

  • Alex Miller

    Just last year John Boehner walked his own daughter down the isle so she could marry a Jamaican Rastafarian and then looked “proudly on” while the two exchanged vows. So does anyone really expect him to understand the grave threat millions of Mesoamerican Indians and Mestizos pose to this country? rhetorical question, I know

    • AndrewInterrupted

      Yes, his daughter is a “coal burner”.
      That does speak volumes about what daddy is made of.
      .

      • Such vibrant options!

        • AndrewInterrupted

          Daddy had to pay!

        In just a few decades, Boehner could be the proud father-in-law of another Mulatto Marvel running for president.

    • Bryce Armstrong

      Maybe he just REALLY hates his daughter, didnt you even consider that?

  • Greg Thomas

    So just how many conservatives are expressing “anger?” All two of them? What a joke!

    As a former Republican, I hate the GOP the most.

  • DelmarJackson

    The GOP is now dead party walking. Sure, they may get democrats to switch, but more likely to just stay home and wait for someone that is wiling to represent them and not the billionaire open border globalists and the banksters. Traditional Americans are waking up the fact that this is still their country for a little bit longer, but the real issues are decided by those on top in both parties and soon thanks to endless unlimited immigration, a new people is being imported to replace them with no connection to the traditional historical American people and nation.

    • In a few years we’ll look back and conclude that today was the day that John Boehner handed the Presidency to Hillary Clinton.

  • Albert

    This is truly disappointing. I vote “no confidence” for the people who are supposed to be our elected representatives. If the GOP won’t act, we really are on our own.

  • A tad bit of good news, he’s been in the House not even a month (he got to be sworn in early because he was filling out Eric Cantor’s term, as Cantor quit early to take his seven figure lobbying job), and he’s already hit the ground running:

    It probably won’t pass, but at least it’s going to get the critters on record.

  • Chasmania

    A first for me ! I merely suggest that Ferguson rioters ply their trade on turncoat congressional offices and the post is deleted ! Lets see if this stealthier version makes the cut

  • There aren’t too many things more pathetic than watching a grown man or woman wiggle and squirm and make excuses for Republicrats that always try to convince you that chopping off your leg is the best way to save your foot. Yes, you read that right. At least Democrats are a little more honest and direct with their anti-White agendas. They want to chop off your foot, then maybe cut your leg off at the knee, then the whole leg, then a hand, and so on and so on.

  • WR_the_realist

    We see again that there while there are no good Democrats, there are a few good Republicans, but never enough to override the bad ones.

    • 1G25

      America desperately needs a second political party.

      Or the red states desperately need to secede.

  • stedman holder

    Remember, if you criticize bossman and his illegal alien invader friends your comments will be deleted. AMREN is starting to look like controlled opposition.

  • Earl P. Holt III

    There is a very big difference between the two parties, but the “leadership” makes them seem very similar. Boehner, McConnell and Reince Priebus at the RNC could not lead a parade…

    • WR_the_realist

      Actually, those three could lead the Democrats quite well.

  • mobilebay

    How much does it take in today’s market to buy off a politician?

    • Sloppo

      Whatever it is, it’s “chump change” for the people who own the “Federal” Reserve.

  • Ringo Lennon

    If people who died thirty years ago came back to life in Chicago suburbs, they wouldn’t recognize the place because of illegal aliens. Thank you, Gov. Jim Edgar (R) and Chicago mayor Richard Daley the second.

  • ghettovalley

    There’s more to it than that. For example, we are in the same middle eastern wars under
    Obama as we were under Bush. The welfare state continues to grow. Our rights continue to be eroded. Out of control government spending continues under both parties. Unchecked immigration. Corporate bailouts. The list goes on and on and on. If nothing substantial ever changes, regardless of whatever figurehead happens to be in charge, how can we really say that these parties are truly different? Sure they bicker on CSPAN about their trivial differences but the bottom line is that nothing ever changes, it’s business as usual. There are no real substantial differences where it counts.

  • Earl Turner

    I emailed my Senator and Representative this morning stating that I’m about 3 seconds away from switching parties. If they don’t stop the invasion and get rid of Obamacare, I will never again vote for a Republican. I’ll vote for the most radically left wing negro commie pro-gay pervert every single time. Why? Because they’re honest about who and what they are. Unlike the Republicans who act one way during a campaign and then turn into Democrats when they’re elected.

    • RationaliseThis

      The Samson option might work as an ultimatum if properly managed. The danger is it might actually be a desired thing from the people that really pull the strings.

  • John Jackson

    I am still amazed at how so many of you are “let down”, are you honestly telling me this is a surprise to you? Did you really believe these clowns just because 2 months before the election they started talking like a conservative?

    Did you even bother to look at their records or who their donors were? How many times can you possibly be duped by the same stupid ploy. I was done with Republicans back in early 2000’s, and it only took me that long because I was young and not really paying attention. There are still a FEW Rep I support, but the party overall is a sick joke.

  • The final vote on Speaker John Boehner’s 1,603-page, more than $1 trillion omnibus spending bill is in jeopardy after members almost killed the bill on the rule. A total of 214 members voted for it, less than the majority of members in the House, but since all members weren’t voting, the 212 against the rule wasn’t enough to kill it. Time for voting had run out minutes before, and briefly the nays—those against the rule—had the majority. At least one Republican had switched a vote from being against the rule to for it, at which time the presiding officer used procedural chicanery to quickly call the vote passed. Republican Reps. Justin Amash (R-MI), Michele Bachmann (R-MN), Dave Brat (R-VA), Mo Brooks (R-AL), Paul Broun (R-GA), Louie Gohmert (R-TX), Paul Gosar (R-AZ), Tim Huelskamp (R-KS), Walter Jones (R-NC), Jim Jordan (R-OH), Steve King (R-IA), Raul Labrador (R-ID), Tom Massie (R-KY), Bill Posey (R-FL), Matt Salmon (R-AZ) and Steve Stockman (R-TX) held the line and voted no. Rep. Kerry Bentivolio (R-MI) switched his vote from nay to yay at the last minute.

    • RationaliseThis

      Bentivolo voted for the death of the effective of Republican Party as those amnesty voters become democrat voters and for endless degradation, mores extensive affirmative action parasitism and minority status for Whites. May he live in infamy.

  • Americaandthewestshouldbewhite

    I have said it before and I will say it again, there are RINOs in the republican party that have a stake in the amnesty business. So we are surrounded by traitors all over.

  • Reynardine

    I have recently written to my congresscritters, and I received only a few replies regarding the amnesty thing. I doubt that my calls will do any good, but there’s always hope.

  • ghettovalley

    I am not suggesting that immigration is a trivial matter. What I am saying is that regardless of who is running things at the moment, the left or the right, it will happen anyway. They make us think that there is a difference between the two parties by arguing over trivial issues, but on huge earth shattering issues with real implications they join together to sell us out. Wars, immigration, the destruction of our constitution, the pillging of social programs we have paid into for years, sending our jobs overseas, I could go on all day. These are the issues that really matter and both sides seem bent on screwing us. We need a better choice than just the lesser of two evils. What kind of choice is that? If we elect a republican president after Obama leaves office, what do you really expect to happen? It will be nothing but the same old crap.

  • Paleoconn

    I may be naive, but has anybody thought of calling the cops on this criminal President?

  • 1. The “Republicans” who stopped amnesty by way of legislation were the half of the Republican Party that’s nowhere near leadership. Now that Obama has pulled out his pen and phone, the proper response is either impeachment or defund, and neither will happen with the current House and about to be Senate leadership. The back benchers better revolt against Boehner and McConnell.

    2. Don’t look for the Official Republican Party to do much in the way of getting rid of ObamaDontCare. Because ObamaDontCare creates a captive paying audience for the insurance industry, and the insurance industry is a very big wheel in Republican Party donor class politics. Remember, a good part of ObamaDontCare came out of the Heritage Foundation, first enacted in a small scale under then Gov. Mitt Romney in Massachusetts, and still to this day, people like Paul Ryan want to do to Medicare what ObamaDontCare has done in general.

  • ghettovalley

    Didn’t Reagan grant amnesty to millions of latinos?

  • We’ll see what happens when February comes around. I predict: More excuses, more meely mouth mush, more hiding behind skirts.

  • ghettovalley

    Sometimes it seems inevitable that the US will become a third world banana republic. I could never really understand why anyone would want to flood our country with people who have never really accomplished anything in the past and contribute virtually nothing positive to the world whatsoever.
