Is It True, Mr. Speaker?

John Boehner and Obama

 

The SkyBridge Alternatives Conference in Las Vegas is exactly the kind of gathering of "investors and elite political donors" along with "hedge fund managers, political and business leaders and celebrities" where Washington’s insiders think they are on safe ground and can speak freely.
 
So grassroots Republican voters and other limited government constitutional conservatives shouldn’t be surprised by reports that Valerie Jarrett, arguably President Obama’s most trusted adviser and political confidant, told attendees at the yearly invitation-only conference that establishment Republican Speaker of the House John Boehner would help the White House make a push to get immigration "reform" enacted in the next three months.
 
This would be the same amnesty for illegal aliens bill that the Congressional Budget Office determined would lower the wages of American workers, we remind you.
 
“I think we have a window this summer, between now and August, to get something done,” Jarrett said, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal. “We have a commitment [to pass amnesty] from Speaker Boehner, who’s very frustrated with his caucus."
 
Our friend Tony Lee over at Breitbart reports that Jarrett, then endorsed the sentiments of Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL), who has said that Democrats would want a piecemeal approach to immigration reform if they get all of the pieces of the Senate bill. Lee reports Jarrett said that there were "a lot of ways to skin a cat" and that there would be "mounting pressure" on amnesty legislation in the coming months.
 
Back on November 22, 2013 we warned that Speaker Boehner could not be trusted on immigration.
 
When asked at a news conference if immigration “reform” was dead Boehner bristled and answered rhetorically, "Is immigration reform dead? Absolutely not.”
 
Now here’s the key point that the big media didn’t tell you back then.
 
The Speaker then said that House Republicans are still having private conversations on how to move forward, but stressed that it will address the issue with smaller individual bills rather than one sweeping bill like the one passed by the Senate.
 
In what Fusion media’s Jordan Fabian termed “a rare occurrence,” Boehner then praised President Barack Obama for reiterating that he’s open to passing an immigration overhaul in pieces—as long as every element of “reform” is included.
 
"I was encouraged that the president said he wouldn't stand in the way of a step by step immigration reform,” Boehner said according to Fabian’s reporting. “The only way to make sure immigration reform works this time is to address these complicated issues one step at a time.”
 
As we pointed-out when President Obama first made the comment that he was open to a piecemeal approach to passing amnesty, his remark that his openness to a package of smaller bills was based solely on preserving amnesty and a “pathway to citizenship” as the central goals of the legislation.
 
And it is also telling that Virginia’s 6th District Rep. Bob Goodlatte, Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, removed opposition to amnesty from his website and has espoused support for tackling immigration “reform” one piece at a time.
 
As Tony Lee points out, Boehner, who hired Sen. John McCain's top amnesty adviser at the end of the last year, has previously told fundraisers in Las Vegas that he was "hellbent" on getting amnesty legislation done this year and then mocked conservative opponents of amnesty at an event in his Ohio district. Boehner also said that when he and Obama agreed the most on amnesty legislation when they met at the White House in February of this year. Obama also indicated this week that there were only "two to three months" to get amnesty legislation enacted this year.
 
The two most basic arguments in favor of a “comprehensive immigration reform bill,” that it would help Republicans with Hispanic voters and the tech industry needs more workers, have been completely debunked, but apparently the “leaders” of the Republican establishment need to be reminded of them regularly .
 
The notion that Republicans can buy the votes of existing citizens of Hispanic heritage or gain the support of the formerly illegal aliens who would be newly enfranchised voters by legislating a pathway to citizenship and granting amnesty to some 11 million-plus illegals was thoroughly debunked by the First Lady of the conservative movement, Phyllis Schlafly in an incisive article for Townhall.
 
As Mrs. Schlafly pointed out, “The current level of legal immigration to America adds thousands of people every day whose views and experience are contrary to the conservative value of limited government… Under current law, 1.1 million new legal immigrants come in every year. The Congressional Budget Office projections indicate that amnesty, plus its scheduled increases in legal immigration, will add an additional 4.6 million new voters by 2014.”
 
More to the point, Phyllis Schlafly documented that “An enormous body of survey research shows that large majorities of recent immigrants, who are mostly Hispanic and Asian, hold liberal views on most policy issues and therefore vote Democratic two-to-one. Their motivation is not our immigration policy; it is economic issues.
 
Right now the “civilian labor force participation rate,” those working or looking for work is at its lowest rate in 36-years – 62.8 percent – meaning some 91.8 million Americans are no longer working or looking for work.
 
Yet, Joel Kotkin, in a great article for The Daily Beast entitled “Silicon Valley’s Giants Are Just Gilded Age Tycoons in Techno-Utopian Clothes” documented that the tech industry is still looking to lower its American labor cost by importing more “techno-coolies.”
 
Kotkin documents that “Another technique is the outsourcing of labor to lower paid foreign workers, the so called “techno-coolies.” The tech giants claim that they hire cheap workers overseas because of a critical shortage of skilled computer workers but that doesn't hold up to serious scrutiny. A 2013 report from the labor-aligned Economic Policy Institute found that the country is producing 50% more IT professionals per year than are being employed. Tech firms, notes EPI, would rather hire “guest workers” who now account for one-third to one half of all new IT job holders, largely to maintain both a lower cost and a more pliant workforce.”
 
With American institutions of higher education producing 50% more IT professionals per year than are being employed what’s the answer of John Boehner and the Republican establishment to the problem of getting all these American workers back into the workforce?
Add more low-wage workers to the workforce.
 
House Republicans apparently want to pass the Senate's hated “comprehensive immigration reform” bill, that Tony Lee says would double and possibly triple the number of H1-B visas that high-tech lobbying groups like Facebook co-founder Mark Zuckerberg's FWD.us covet even though American colleges and universities graduate more workers in the science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) fields than there are job openings.
 
Senator Jeff Sessions of Alabama had it exactly right when he observed, “It is particularly galling; the business view is even worse than being wrong in economic terms [because] they go even further and make a ludicrous claim that it is good politics for Republicans to abandon the perfectly legitimate goal of having a lawful system of immigration that serves the national interest.”
 
We said back in November of last year Boehner, Eric Cantor, Kevin McCarthy, Cathy McMorris Rogers and the rest of the House Republican “leadership” could not be trusted on immigration and Valerie Jarrett’s remarks to the global elite gathered at the SkyBridge Alternatives Conference in Las Vegas show we were right.

 

It’s time to demand that every Republican congressional candidate, particularly those incumbents with a record of abandoning conservative principles and going along with Boehner on key votes, sign a no amnesty pledge. We urge you to sign our “no amnesty” petition and to demand that your congressional candidates sign a “no amnesty” pledge today.

Spk'r Boner is a outright RINO and whenever he speaks you just know that he has again crossed the fence to discuss a decision with the left side of the aisle and put no risk in his own seat as a leader, he is in my opinion a coward in in progress and just barely sticking his head out of the closet....

Surrender not an option

Direct action required. If you are resident in VA 7th district mark your calendar and be sure to VOTE in June 10th primary to defeat incumbent amnesty pusher Eric Cantor.

If you are not a voter in the 7th district, go to the campaign website and send money.

Watching from the sidelines is not an option. www.davebratforcongress.com

Reality needs to be confronted. Boehner is a GLOBALIST. The reason our border will never be closed is because the NWO plan is for the North American Union. Bush was holding summits on integration under SPP. The oligarchs own BOTH parties. Bush just handed the baton to Obama. Boehner is licking the boots of the oligarchs who want to kill the middle class. There is too much money and power in the middle class. The might of America MUST be destroyed in order to force us to give up our national sovereignty. It is obvious the gov is preparing for civil war. There will be one world gov. the bible tells us it will be a coalition of "10 kings". The plan is regionalism as the way to one world gov. The plan is 10 unions governed by UN. I believe when the US goes down we will take the world with us.

"The drive of the Rockefellers and their allies is to create a one-world government combining super capitalism and Communism under the same tent, all under their control.... Do I mean conspiracy? Yes I do. I am convinced there is such a plot, international in scope, generations old in planning, and incredibly evil in intent." Congressman Larry P. McDonald, 1976,…..

In the long march toward a new social order, ultra-right and left-wing agitation propaganda serve not only to polarize and destabilize society, they create a diversionary conflict to prevent recognition of the true conspiracy.

Lest an informed and united citizenry form an alliance against them, principles of conflict management are employed by the power elites:
"The plan, I think, is the old one of world dominion in a new form. The money-power and revolutionary power have been set up and given sham but symbolic shapes ('Capitalism' or 'Communism') and sharply defined citadels ('America' or 'Russia'). Such is the spectacle publicly staged for the masses. But what if similar men, with a common aim, secretly rule in both camps and propose to achieve their ambition through the clash between those masses? I believe any diligent student of our times will discover that this is the case. -- Douglas Reed" 4.

Rep versus Dem is just rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic. The real problem is their NWO.

Amnesty

It is really quite simple. I am starting not to care anymore. If the house Republicans push through any type amnesty I will probably sit out 2014 elections! Sorry.

Thats Exactly what the Establishment wants!

The Establishment Rockefeller/Rino/Globalist Republicans and their Progressive Establishment Friends want you to sit it out. Their strategy is to diminish the Conservative Base Resolve to oppose it. They are just hoping and waiting on people like you and me to cave in and just give up.
This is precisely their strategy and it appears to be working. This is the trickle down Fabian Socialist Agenda named after the emperor Fabian because he opposed his enemy's by slowly eroding their resolve.

The Establishment is just waiting for the right time to move. The right time to move on the legislation is when people do not care anymore.

Sitting out

You're right. Just a fleeting thought. I will dutifully go vote.
