House Nears Passage of Homeland Bill Without Conditions

Erica Werner and David Espo, Big Story, March 3, 2015

In a major victory for President Barack Obama, the Republican-led House overcame last-minute opposition from GOP critics on Tuesday and moved toward final passage of legislation to fund the Homeland Security Department without restrictions on immigration.

The bill’s approval was assured after Republicans demanding the bill include constraints on Obama’s immigration policy were turned back on a test vote of 140-278.

Obama’s signature was assured on the measure, which cleared the Senate last week. Without it, short-term funding for the department would expire on Friday at midnight.

Rep. Mike Simpson, R-Idaho, said he, too, opposes Obama’s policy directives that eased the threat of deportation for millions of immigrants living in the country illegally. Yet he also said the “security of the homeland is one of our highest priorities,” and added that Congress could continue to oppose the president without forcing a partial agency shutdown that loomed for Friday.

Not all opponents of the bill were ready to yield.

“If we’re not going to fight now, when are we going to fight?” asked Rep. Matt Salmon, R-Ariz.

The maneuvering on the House floor came after Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, told members of his rank-and-file at a closed-door meeting that the time had come to concede defeat after a months-long struggle with the White House and Democrats.

“I am as outraged and frustrated as you at the lawless and unconstitutional actions of this president,” Boehner told the meeting, according to aides. “I believe this decision–considering where we are–is the right one for this team, and the right one for this country.”

“This is the signal of capitulation,” said Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa. “The mood of this thing is such that to bring it back from the abyss is very difficult.”

Passage of the stand-alone spending bill would seal the failure of a Republican strategy designed to make Homeland Security funding contingent on concessions from Obama. Controversy over the legislation has produced partisan gridlock in the first several weeks of the new Congress, though Republicans gained control of the Senate last fall and won more seats in the House than at any time in 70 years.

    Boehner is a betrayer, bought and paid for.

    I knew that something was weird when he started crying when he was made Speaker.

    I guess it hurts when you sear your conscience?

    • Dwight

      Orin Hatch and Lindsey Graham have approved and cleared the way for Holder’s she-devil replacement on the Judiciary Committee. Rat traitors are destroying everything.

      • Diversity Fatigue

        I’ve tried repeatedly to contact anyone on Hatch’s staff about what he has been up to. No luck.

      When ever he feels it he just douses it with more scotch.

        A handful of Prozac with a scotch chaser.

  • TruthBeTold

    The Republicans put on their best dog and pony show for supporters to make it look like they were fulfilling their election mandate.

    The Republicans had the perfect argument that one man, Obama, was responsible for the impasse in funding. All one man, Obama, had to do was remove the amnesty provision and DHS funds would flow.

    I never heard that discussed.

    • Dwight

      Republicans in a nutshell:
      .

  • Dwight

    Any way you slice it, most Republicans are traitors. These are the ones who deserve the full measure of wrath. With Obama and the Demon cats we know what we are getting upfront, but the Republi cants are the lying enemy within.

  • OK, we’re done with the GOP. Thank you and have a nice day.

    • That sound you hear is Hunter Wallace laughing and telling us, “I told you so.” And you know what? It’s not as if I didn’t know.

    • Jason Lewis

      I’m not done with them yet. Primary time remember who votes with Boehner.

    • GeneticsareDestiny

      I might continue to vote GOP in local elections but I won’t vote for any Republican in congressional or presidential elections unless he is clearly and thoroughly against immigration.

      • withcaution

        Don’t they always tell you what you want to hear come election time? It’s worked so well for 40 years.

        • GeneticsareDestiny

          Yeah, I know we might get one who will pretend to be super against immigration but will then let in illegals and try to raise the number of legal immigrants coming in.

          I hope there’ll be at least one candidate who is actually against immigration, though you’re right that there’s no good way to tell if they’re lying or not.

      • bilderbuster

        Reagan was against immigration when he didn’t do anything as governor of a border state and he was really against it when as president he allowed a few hundred thousand Central Americans to come here. He was so against it that he signed the Amnesty Bill against his will.

    • TruthBeTold

      They just lost the White House in ’16. How many seats they lose in the House and Senate are not known at this time.

    • withcaution

      Give us one more chance, …We brought flowers!

      • Lt. Greyman, NVA

        I’ll pull out this time, I promise!

    • Alexandra1973

      I was done with the GOP in ’04.

  • A few days ago, I read a story about ex-operatives for Boehner and Rinse Cycle Priebus getting together to run propaganda ads under an “American Action Network” rubric to try to get the few reliable House conservatives to back down. That’s how I knew Boehner wasn’t going to see this through.

    Now, there better be either a coup against Boehner in the house or a mass walkout of the Stupid Party led by Jeff Sessions. I can no longer stomach the concept of voting for anyone with the R next to his or her name, even the good ones, as long as doing so empowers donor class prostitutes like Boehner and McConnell.

    • Diversity Fatigue

      Priebus needs to be rinsed alright. What a nerd!

    • Capn Dad

      Yeah I will never vote for pubs again. Many out there feel that way. So with all the illegal votes coming down the pike we are well on our way to a one party nation very likely in 2016.

      • LHathaway

        Most cities have been one party going on 30 years or longer. The largest 100 cities or so are no small chunk of the population.

      • Ernest

        Hell we are already there.

  • Race Heretic

    Republicans, worse than useless.

    • TruthBeTold

      They can’t even stand up to a lame duck president.

      • bilderbuster

        They could if they wanted too but they were hired to sell this nation out.

  • connorhus

    Yep the Republican establishment leaders sacrificed true Americans once again. Yes Republicans are as bad as Democrats but remember at least the Republicans are leaving our firearms alone and at this stage of the game THAT is the most important issue cause we’re gonna need em soon.

    • LexiconD1

      Oh Please, they’d roll over on that too. I have no faith in them, anymore.

      • John Smith

        All it takes is a Christie or Romney to sell us out, and the GOP has nothing to fear again, IMO, because they can get away with not supporting RKBA then too. The differences between the parties will keep getting fewer and fewer as they realize that dropping the distinctions makes them more appealing to a mainstream of dolts.

    • bilderbuster

      Republiscams are worse because they pretend to be against the Democraps when in reality we live in a one party state.

    • Fighting_Northern_Spirit

      Yeah, imagine if we didn’t have our guns! The elites might flood our country with parasitic foreign nationals, and we wouldn’t do a damned thing about it.

  • Luca

    “I am as outraged and frustrated as you at the lawless and
    unconstitutional actions of this president,” Boehner told the meeting,
    according to aides.

    So where are the motions for impeachment?

    • Jason Lewis

      Too scared. First black President. Next can be Hilary. Can’t impeach the first female. Next a hispanic………….

      • GeneticsareDestiny

        Yep. I’ve said on here before that I’m pretty sure the only reason Obama hasn’t been impeached for his executive overreach and disregard for the rule of law is because he’s the first black president and it would be unthinkable (to liberals and fake conservatives) to impeach the first black president.

        I hope we don’t end up with Hillary Clinton as the first female president or the same thing might happen again. But if the Republicans run Jeb Bush, we probably will have her.

        • bilderbuster

          If they run Jeb Bush then it means that Hillary’s already been appointed by The Tribe and Bush has been chosen to be the ringer.

      • NoMosqueHere

        Luis Gutierez in 2020!

  • Whitetrashgang

    Homeland securities first priority should be to get rid of the democrats and republicans,and then itself.

    • John Smith

      Liberals and RINOs are the greatest threat to our country and neither will do anything about illegals and porous borders, which is the major domestic security shortcoming anyway.

  • superlloyd

    This is a surprise! Republicans capitulating after going through the motions in opposing the bill.

    • Whitetrashgang

      I myself am shocked,what next no Easter bunny?

  • Lewis33

    We can see where Republican priorities (and allegiance) lay after today. Netanyahu and Adelson.

    • Weisheit77

      As far as I can tell, supporting Israel is about the only thing conservatives do that set them apart from the Left these days.

  • Bon, From the Land of Babble

    House passes DHS funding 257-167

    Anyone here expect any different?

    Anyone here not understand that with FEW exceptions Republicans are as anti-White as Democrats – and that neither party supports White issues?

    Didn’t think so.

    There was no “caving” – this is what the Repubs wanted all along.

    Had to pass some $$ into a few bank accounts and war chests first, other than that, let the vote commence.

    • The list:

      http://conservative-headlines.com/2015/03/did-your-republican-congressman-just-vote-to-fund-executive-amnesty/

      All this does is list the Republicans that voted the wrong way. All the Democrats voted the wrong way, which is sad enough by itself. So if you don’t read the particular Republican’s name here, he or she either voted the right way or didn’t vote.

      • SentryattheGate

        Thanks, I checked the site and was relieved that my rep. and senator voted the right way, and I will call tomorrow to thank them.

        • CallahanAuto

          Mine, longtime Congressman Rodney Frelinghuysen, did not, but he is a typical RINO. We had an outstanding rep like Jon Runyan (the former Philadelphia Eagle), but he got sick of his party’s unwillingness to fight and walked away in 2014. We also have Scott Garrett here in NJ, who votes like a Texas Republican. He just keeps getting elected even though the newspapers hate him with a passion. You’re likely to find lots of race realists in his district, which covers much of rural Sussex County, where Democrat is a dirty word, and Northern Bergen County, where people who pay exorbitant taxes love their good (white and Asian) schools. Garrett makes Chris Christie look like Bill Clinton!

          • bilderbuster

            Chris Christie makes himself look like Bill Clinton.

          • CallahanAuto

            Point made!

      • Sick of it

        Lo and behold – Thad Cochran! Why does that not surprise me.

        And Scalise in the House. We totally called it with these guys.

        • Yeah don’t blame me, I recommended voting for Chris McDaniel.

          • bilderbuster

            And most Republicans did too.

  • Doomispixulated

    This two party system is just the same as pro wrestling. Enemies in front of the camera, co-conspirators behind the scenes…pathetic.
    Capitulation is too weak of a word…the Republicans might as well of got down on their knees and prayed in front of his holiness.

    • Weisheit77

      I know, I keep hoping that John will get banked by some democrats so we can get past the Republican bad/ Democrat good dichotomy. He has proven an old fool can learn if you apply enough force, at least in regards to race, so maybe there is hope.

      I think we got the point, John. Republicans like big business.
      I bet you fully half of his comments have that.

      How about give us something new and explain why the organized left is pushing it?

  • JohnEngelman

    More immigrants mean lower wages, higher prices, and higher profits. Why would leaders of the Republican Party oppose that?

    • John Smith

      And more votes by deception for the democrat party.

    • Jason Lewis

      They’re not very forward thinking are they?

    • SentryattheGate

      John, it’s easier to think simplistically than to see things more realistically; it’s too complicated for some people. What is your opinion of the Demoncat party?

      • JohnEngelman

        Good question.

        When I study American history, until I get into the 1970’s I have an easy time identifying with whatever at the time was considered to be liberal, and on the left. By 1970 it was clear that ending racial discrimination – which I favored – would not achieve racial equality.

        It was then that the Democrats began to support policies like affirmative action and forced school busing, which I oppose.

        In addition, I have always been fairly conservative on social issues. I dislike the sexual revolution, and hate criminals.

        I have lost my enthusiasm for the civil right movement, but it seemed like a good idea at the time.

    • listenupbub

      Yep, they are all bought off.

      It will soon be over for whites in America.

      • SentryattheGate

        There are 10 Republican representatives and Senators that vote 100% constitutionally (like Ron Paul did), and several others that vote 80 and 90%. They have stood against the massive bail-out, illegal alien amnesties, against the Federal Reserve’s fiat money, militarization of police, nationalization of education, and more. During the 2012 presidential election, Paul won the first 3 state primaries (showing an awakening of citizens), but was robbed of it by “his party”. And states are increasingly using the power of the 10th Amendment to tell the feds to back off, as in gun control, NSA spying, illegal alien detainment, kicking out federal Common Core, and a few others I can’t think of right now. I am not naive, but that is somewhat encouraging; hopefully not too little, too late!.

        • listenupbub

          Too little, too late.

          The next generation of voters will undo anything positive the Republicans will (reluctantly) do, anyways.

    In evaluating Republicans, consider the toxic media environment for immigration patriotism in which they must function. Fox News, for example, is the so-called
    “conservative” alternative to MSM. It’s owner is Rupert Murdoch:

    “We need to give those individuals who are already here—after they have passed checks to ensure they are not dangerous criminals—a path to citizenship so they can pay their full taxes, be counted, and become more productive members of our community.” (“Immigration Reform Can’t Wait,” Rupert Murdoch, Wall Street Journal, June 18, 2014)

    Fox News is run by Roger Ailes, another devotee of citizenship for illegal aliens. Here’s how Ailes is described by Lindsey Graham, the GOP senator who votes with Democrats on immigration:

    “Mr. Graham . . . said in an interview that the chief of Fox News supported fixing the broken immigration system . . . Mr. Ailes has also been quoted on the record supporting the immigration overhaul, including its most contentious piece, a path to citizenship for those here illegally.” (Graham Defends Fox News Chief Ailes on Immigration, WALL STREET JOURNAL, 1-14-14)

    • LHathaway

      No. When FOX news came out is what the alternative to CBS, ABC, NBC, CNN and the other 60 channels on television. It’s better than nothing.

  • pea_brain_2012

    So the Dems want a ‘clean’ bill. Is that possible with a bunch of dirty self serving scumbags representing the citizens?

  • libertarian1234

    This place has become no more than a tumultuous mass of contentious tribes each one competing for domination and control.

    No multicultural society in the history of the world has existed for very long without splitting apart, usually in bitter, bloody fighting, and this one will do the same………and so will the entire Western world.

    The process has already begun here and also in Europe.

  • HJ11

    Forget about conservatives. They are mostly weak-seeds. We need full-on White advocates in Congress.

    • HJ11

      …And, the way to get full-on White advocates is to push some Whites to start a White Caucus. That’s the way other races do it. They get elected from geographic areas and say they represent all races in those areas, but they then join the Black or Latino or Asian or Jewish Caucuses and ALSO represent THEIR people no matter where they live.

    • Jason Lewis

      They’ll come out as nationalist and get zero media coverage and zero financial support. The other conservatives will run away from them like they had the plague.

      • Sick of it

        And beg us for protection when the SHTF…

      • HJ11

        See my comment above about Caucuses. This is how it should be done.

    • listenupbub

      We are already done. We can’t do anything now that they are here. Heck, a lot of the white people in our country are pathetic, too, these days.

      The white birth rates are crap, people can’t get jobs; prepare for major collapse.

      Once people start really realizing how effed we are, I wonder if they will get violent. It has happened in other parts of the world.

      They are irrelevant.
      Put the advocates at the head of columns headed in the direction of Washington.

  • dd121

    Republicans were divided. Now they’re totally fractured. I’ll never vote for them again since they’ve proven they’ll never fight for the historic American people. If I ever vote again it will only be for third parties. Maybe they can’t win but at least I can sleep at night.

    • Petronius

      Totally fractured might be the best possible outcome. The Yellow-Streak Republicans have caved on everything. Not just amnesty, but also Obamacare subsidies, spending and the debt, judicial appointments, coal, guns & ammo, the nuclear option, Ferguson, etc. It’s a very long list; you name it, they’ve caved on it.

      • DonReynolds

        This is what John Boehner calls “fighting to the death”…..but it is never today….it is always months from now and when time runs out ….he stabs us all in the back and offers up our limp bodies to his masters.

  • KevinPhillipsBong

    There was no capitulation. Anyone who has been paying attention for the past few years knows that Boehner has been trying to get amnesty through from the get go. Either he’s for it or his donors must be leaning on him 24/7.
    It’s not a bug, it’s a feature.

    • I have nothing against the Nation of Israel. It’s just these GOP traitors in the US which are the problem. Israel is taking steps to make sure they don’t get inundated by millions of Arabs & other peoples who’d move there to live because it’s a modern, democratically run, somewhat peaceful [internally] country in which you can raise a family.

      What they do with immigration is just what the US should be doing.

      Our problem is with the traitors in our own nation.

    • Alexandra1973

      What’s unbiblical about it?

      • Erik

        First thing is the people who live there are Zionists from the Khazar empire. They are not of the bloodline of Abraham. Second this state was created by the Rothschilds not god. The Israelites lost their land because of disobedience. God wouldn’t give Christ-haters a piece of land. Plus, Judaism is a false religion out of Babylon.

  • WR_the_realist

    Is anybody surprised that the Republicans caved?

    I have to hand it to the Democrats — they were willing to vote against the DHS bill that didn’t fund Obama’s amnesty 100 times in a row if necessary.

    Why are the Republicans such woosies?

  • Reverend Bacon

    If he really believed that this president was “lawless and unconstitutional,” why not impeach? That’s what the constitution prescribes.

  • CallahanAuto

    Can the Republicans hire Scott Boras or something?

  • Deacon Blue

    How is this possible? They should have defunded DHS and let the government go into
    a shutdown whole blaming stubborn senate Democrats for filibustering the bill. Why would
    Boehner capitulate to this nonsense? Republicans despite majorities in both chambers,
    are a bunch of castrated simpletons/charlatans. Now senate Dems know if they do not
    like something in any bill they just filibuster and GOP testicles will shrivel and shrink into
    their abdomens as the GOP caves. More gridlock. Meet the new boss – same as the old
    boss.

    • Greg Thomas

      Yeah……why would they continue to fund an agency which allowed 25 million illegal invaders to violate the very laws they are supposed to be enforcing; only to give invaders amnesty once they are here? What exactly are we getting for our money. DHS is nothing more than a welcoming party for illegal invaders. Pathetic.

    • DonReynolds

      I am not even surprised that the RINO Republicans only needed less than two months to betray their own voters and hand control of both houses of Congress back to the Democrats. At least before the last election, the Republicans had an excuse for their shameful betrayals…..now they have not even a fig leaf.

  • Pax Romana

    Despite an overwhelming Republican Voter opposition, ‘Open Border Boehner’: “I gave Obama everything he wanted, and not a penny more!”.

    The Republic party is thoroughly corrupt. They no longer represent the wishes of their constituents, but are now representatives for Big Business and cheap, unskilled 3rd world foreign labor.

    America and the nations of the West have gone insane. Treasonous leaders working against the interests of their own country and people. These Politicians don’t give a damn what you think. They don’t give a damn what you want. They will decide what is best for themselves and their Swiss Bank Accounts, and the majority of Americans can go to hell!

    The Republican RINO fix is in, cheap labor wins. Democrats get their votes and the Republican Party cuts its own throat. All the hard work, blood and sacrifice in over 200 years of building and defending the greatest nation on Earth for nothing! Our corrupt so called “Representatives” will lie, cheat, and steal to create a Third World existence, full of overpopulation, poverty, violence, and pollution….so long as the labor is cheap for one party, and the votes are guaranteed for the other.

    Never in the history of mankind has a nation and its people purposely strived for, and celebrated their own destruction. It is straight out insanity.

    “Quem deus vult perdere, dementat prius.”

    “Whom the gods would destroy, they first make mad”

    “A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear.” – Marcus Tullius Cicero

    When neither party is willing to stop non-white immigration, this country is in its death spiral. If they wouldn’t stop it when whites were 70+% of the population, they darn sure aren’t going to stop it when whites are 50% or less. The non-white percentage of the population will pick up speed as they secure ever-greater numbers. It’s only a matter of time.
    On the bright side, when non-whites take over the government and throw the border wide open for their brethren with offers of immediate citizenship, Central and South America will empty out and we can take over, then provide displaced whites from all over the world a place to find safe haven.

  • caughy

    It is shocking that Congress would elect to defund DHS to counter Obama’s immigration plan. This is high treason. The illegals have been here for years and nothing has been done to prevent their crossing since the first Bush. The wealthy seem to like them with their cheap labor and work ethic, so don’t expect a big push from them to deport the illegals. Obama’s plan is to defer deportation for several years and to focus resources on better securing the border and to target illegals involved in crime. It also gives otherwise law abiding immigrants with children the chance to register with immigration and to be given a shot at citizenship. Now, really and truly, I doubt that too many illegals will come out of the shadows and legally immigrate. The answer will be for the Feds to crackdown hard on companies that employ them, with political correctness aside. America has itself to blame for allowing this situation to occur. We have had years to seal the border, yet the border patrol deals with budget cuts. I think that we have become too dependent on this cheap labor source to let it go.

  • Democrats refuse to preserve Bush era tax cuts on the rich: The Republican minority fights tooth and nail against them, and is even willing to let the Federal Government shut down to preserve those tax cuts. Later, as a MAJORITY, a Democratic president threatens to allow 12 million illegal invaders become citizens, thus damaging the demographics, economy and possibly very existence of our nation, and the Republicans say “well, gee, I guess we can’t really do anything to stop that. Okay, you win, we give in…” So, what do Republicans care about?

      That is what passes for “conservative” in the Jeb Bush RINO era…..do they support tax cuts for their friends on the golf course? I really do not give a hoot about the tax rates….so much of the wealth of this country is already off-shore anyway….I really do not see it as American any longer.

    What no public “official” will say of course, is that stopping immigration would satisfy BOTH conditions of “homeland security” and squatters.

    Only the Republicans bring a peace offering to a vanquished enemy; incredible.

    In 2013, the GOP was warned of dire political consequences if they allowed the budget gap to happen. They allowed it anyway and the GOP won a landslid midterm election in 2014.

    And now the’re afraid that if they allow a budget gap in just one of the 15 federal departments, they’ll face dire political consequences in 2016.

    • They will face dire consequences in 2016, because I will vote Democrat, straight ticket. I hope they like the idea of Shrillary stacking the Supreme Court a lot less than I do.

      • How does voting Democrat help you or your family? If they really cared about White votes, they(both parties) wouldn’t purposely ignore an enormous majority of White voters. A protest vote in a Democrat vs Republican world is like threatening to drink Pepsi if Coca-Cola doesn’t do things the right way. Your teeth are gonna rot no matter which one you choose, and the conglomerates are both benefitting by you playing into their game of which sugary beverage is best for you.

        • Nobody stabs me in the back and keeps my vote.

          • A 7-inch blade in the back or a 7-inch blade right into your chest. I don’t see a silver lining in this kind of voting.

          • At least the Democrats were never pretending to be anything other than my enemies.

          • DonReynolds

            A thousand up votes for Mr. Scott.

      • DonReynolds

        Agreed, Mr. Scott. You are always on target.
        No more handing the Republipukes a majority in both houses of Congress, much less control of the White House.
        I will not be betrayed by them ever again.
        Better to deal with enemies than with traitors.

    Trey “von Martin” Gowdy

  • Realist

    Only a few people in this country understand, Democracy doesn’t work.

  • Whenever he’s pressed, he says that he’s “not qualified.” I think what he really means by that is that he thinks he’s too old.

    • ricpic

      He’s a brilliant guy and his heart’s in the right place. Unfortunately he doesn’t project well. By project well I mean in the sense that a salesman sells himself. He’s quality, not a salesman. Sad to say the response to quality is instinctive antipathy on the part of many if not most voters.

  • All of that is true. However, it has now become perfectly clear that voting for even the best Republicans only serves to empower the treacherous bought and paid for RINO leadership.

    One of the big unspoken scandals here is that not one single Democrat in either chamber voted against the open border agenda.

  • Dan B. Cooper

    Boycott the Republican Party

    • Boycott? Heck; I’d like to torture those folks to death. A soldering iron up the anus, inserted while cold and then plugged in to a wall outlet so it slowly grows hot seems quite appropriate. Taking fingers off with bolt-cutters does as well. Then there’s always molten lead poured into the ears.

      I completely hate those people and would honestly like to do these things to them, but refrain only because I don’t want to go back to prison.

  • I have played chicken on a road, and I always aimed straight for the other driver, getting rubber in all five gears. They always ran straight off the road.

  • Vote Democrat. I’ll do that or stay home and get drunk.

  • One comment that involved details about torture appears to have been a bit too graphic for the moderator. I am sorry, but since he read it, he now knows. I am terribly, terribly sorry, as this is a family website on which we never discuss any issues like drugged gang-rape of young girls in Pakistan-occupied Britain, the criminal invasion of our nations, or the parasitical extortion of our money by our own governments.

    Buy British Last.

      hahaha good stuff.

  • listenupbub

    Now we know why a liberal civilization never existed in history (or never lasted long once it did):

    They destroy themselves by “including” other people groups that end up plundering the genes, absorbing them into another ethnicity, and turning the country upside down.

    We’ll all be speaking Spanish soon. In 200 years, the average american will not have to opportunity to be graced by the presence of a beautiful natural blonde.

  • listenupbub

    I have an idea to get rid of this crap:

    Start a fake war with ISIS and secretly, under the shadow of the beauracracy, conscript all the hispanics you can. Run crappy tactics, get them killed. Make sure the government workers calling the shots are crazy white nationalists who carry the secret to the grave.

    Not many hispanics would end up dying, hopefully, because they would get the heck out of America once they see each other get conscripted.

    Then seal the border.

  • DonReynolds

    I know I speak for many others when I say this…..
    Republicans cannot ask me for my vote ever again without getting their fat face slapped.
    I will not vote again for a Republican.
    From now on…..Worse is Better.
    The Worse it gets, the closer we are to getting it better.
    There is no political solution.
    This government is unsustainable and sooner it fails, the better we will all be.
    Burn it to the ground and sow the ground with salt.

  • De Doc

    I couldn’t agree more. Our own congressional rep, McSally (R), went along with this charade. GOP has a suicidal obsession at this point – the question now is whether they are taking the slow arsenic poisoning route or bullet to the head. Either way they are dead ducks.

  • DonReynolds

    No…..the white flag should be carried by the traitors in the Republican party, not over the White House. I will never forgive them…..and never is a very long time.
