#Ferguson: Facts Don’t Matter Anymore

Facts and details are starting to leak out concerning the shooting death of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri—albeit slowly. But facts don’t seem to matter anymore in our idiocracy, i.e. mobocracy. If they did, I doubt Ferguson would be in flames right now. But I digress.

Earlier this week, I was listening to a caller on the Dana Loesch radio show who allegedly had spoken with the spouse of Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson—the officer who shot Michael Brown. The caller claimed Michael Brown became involved in an altercation with Officer Darren Wilson, and even tried to take his gun—which allegedly went off during the struggle. The caller also stated Brown bum-rushed the police officer.

Additionally, an audio of some alleged eyewitnesses to the lethal shooting of Michael Brown has recently come out and seems to corroborate the details provided by…

I Have NO Words…

paul ryan

By Isabel Matos

Update April 23 2:21 pm. It is no secret. I am livid. I couldn’t help but be alarmed by the fact that my representatives are supposed to be anti-communist and yet, are pushing Amnesty. They are calling it Immigration Reform as you will see by clicking on the links from Tony Lee’s article to what Rep. Ros-Lehtinen said to Jose Diaz-Balart. You would think THEY (not me) would have access to simple information that can be found online. That is in part what this is about. Anyone can do a little homework. They could and should know this but they ignore it.

I am not here to make a dissertation on Communist Infiltration. I am here to make a statement about the ABUSE of the GOPe using my representatives to push their agenda which is a COMMUNIST PARTY USA agenda. I wanted to make sure that was clear, too.  It was the special interests who wrote S.744 last year. I hope journalists with more resources look into this in more depth: the names of the (specific) companies and/or organizations that have been behind these bills because they are mostly like writing what our representatives are so busy pushing.  Thank you for reading and viewing.  It shows support that is much appreciated.

I am really at a loss for words. I can’t express how low the GOPe has stooped and how utterly embarrassed and saddened I am by this latest and most stunning development regarding amnesty so far. It hits so close to home that it defies all logic for me. For two anti-communist representatives to be sharing goals with LaRaza in the push for amnesty shows just how much the situation has deteriorated and how out of control the establishment is in using our community leaders to push this idiotic agenda, and how out of touch and untouchable our representatives have become by keeping this dirty secret from the voters. This has gone far enough. They have been used and pampered to no end, to help the GOPe.

I hope you view the clip where I appealed to my representatives to not support amnesty last year. I hope you know I’ve done all I could to stop them. I cannot stand by and watch any longer, but I don’t know what else can effect change at this point.  It’s time to expose their increasingly traitorous actions to this country by pushing amnesty, and for our cause for freedom which is considered sacred. Never in a million years would I have imagined this to happen.

Pushing Amnesty for Republicans is a delusional goal. It is ill-advised (which makes you wonder where are they getting their information from). It helps the left. This latest is a mockery of the dreams of many legal immigrants who they are supposed to represent.  Many came to this country to escape big government, ironically the same one they are helping to create, wittingly or not.

They are out of touch as their daily focus is to pander to the special needs of illegals. As their status in the party grows, they forget what made them enter public service in the first place. I have described Rhinos with an H before and the two mentioned below may be turning into political animals themselves. They are leaving their humanity behind because they are abandoning their principles. Their live for their next perk, committee position or television appearance. (Now can you understand why I HATE THE GOPe?! It has taken good people and corrupted them.) They are living the high life but seem reduced to an existence of getting the next “meal” just like beasts. They don’t care. Party on! 

“Que Viva la Pepa!”

Who cares about the folks? It’s time to mingle with our enemies. How base and undignified. It has gone on long enough. It doesn’t matter if any of you are losing your souls in the process anymore. This  exceptional country matters more. In the end my words were just physical disgust turned inside out spilled on a page.

He’s been working hard. Awww..

In a Breitbart Article on August 11th, Tony Lee reported:

One of the 11 House Republicans La Raza praised for not voting to end President Barack Obama’s temporary amnesty program for illegal immigrants revealed that Rep. Paul Ryan has been working “every day” behind the scenes on an amnesty bill.

In a Friday appearance on MSNBC’s Jose Diaz-Balart, Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL) predicted that Congress is “going to be passing an immigration bill” in the future, “thanks to your brother, Mario Diaz-Balart.”

“Mario and Paul Ryan and good leaders are working every day toward that, and we hope that it will happen,” she said.

Ros-Lehtinen and other members of the GOP earned La Raza’s praise for voting against the border bill that would have denied Obama the right to use federal funds to implement temporary amnesty.

Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart (R-FL), whom Ros-Lehtinen referenced, was reportedly “ready to announce to House leaders that a majority of House Republicans supported his immigration reform bill,” and secured “soft commitments from at least 120 Republicans.” Ryan was reportedly working with Diaz-Balart to get support for his bill, which would have allowed Republicans to bring it to the floor and then vote against it, enabling it to pass with Democrat support.

After House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) was ousted because of his support for amnesty, House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) told President Obama that he would not bring up an immigration bill in the House this year. Though Boehner said he wanted to get an amnesty bill through in the next Congress, Diaz-Balart asked House leaders to give his bill one more chance this year before being denied.

“I’m seriously disappointed,” Diaz-Balart said then. “We have a historic opportunity to fix a system everyone knows is broken. We’re squandering that opportunity. The bottom line is we have a bill that is ready to go. We had bipartisan support. And yet I’ve been told we’re not going to move forward this year.”  END OF ARTICLE.

What a great way to end this blog post. I had been keeping these pictures handy for a while and it’s time to start taking the gloves off and exposing what has been going on down here for years.

Open Letter to Mr. Erick Erickson

Dear Erick Erickson:

I don’t know you that well. I only read an article from time to time but what kind of a poor excuse for a patriot are you? First the injury (voter fraud and attacks on McDaniel) then the insult (they can’t speak up).  Your silencing anyone from participating in an invite to a question and answer speaks volumes.  Thanks a lot.

I am dismayed at your site’s refusal to allow concerned Americans who happen to be from Mississippi and who are very upset at the obvious voter fraud and race baiting that has gone on, has gone unpunished by the RNC. On the contrary, it is being completely ignored. It is not only a sign of things that have happened before (Chairman Priebus dismisses votes from Ron Paul delegates at the 2012 RNC Convention), but of a sign of things to come you may not know about, because you were not a part of that particular place in history like I was, so consider this a post which took 55 years to write.  Wise up there, Mr. Erickson!

I wasn’t born last night, but I wrote this on his Facebook timeline last night:

Republican National Committee started a Q&A.  August 9 at 2:27 pm · Chairman Reince Priebus is at the RedState Gathering & ready to take your questions for the next 30 minutes:

questions and answersLet me tell you something, Mr. Priebus.. Cuba had a revolution because a corrupt RINO (yes, a Republican), justified an opportunistic, charismatic and evil revolutionary to take his place. If you continue with the corruption, allowing for voter fraud, amnesty, hating women, children and using blacks as tokens for your campaigning, you will either starve the party to death or invite a very nasty consequence for all. I don’t even want to think of it. Sometimes there are things that are more important than money, power or fame. That is human decency, honor and a respect for the people of a nation who have begged you to listen. I don’t know how you sleep at night betraying not just us, but this wonderful country, but you will not rob ME of mine. Shame on you for taking one red cent from anyone to push the LEFT’s agenda. I see why you’ve been hired-anyone who can keep a straight face with the emails and earfuls you must be getting… is beyond hopeless. For shame!  ~ Isabel

If you need more information about the history of the take-over, I will be happy to provide it, but it is best summarized in just a few lines for a lesson learned: Corruption is foolish because it gives the left the justification to impose their own corruption (which is worse). Only a party that leads with moral authority instills fear in the opponent and wins victories. When you help the GOPe by covering up its corruption it further impedes our rights to not only free speech, but the benefits of honest leadership, integrity of a political process and the very future of our Republic. We, the voters, take this seriously.

Instead of serving yourself by covering for cowards and sellouts who have done less than nothing for our party, join us in taking on the corruption you have sometimes alluded to in your electoral articles.  It takes guts to be a patriot, and part of that means sacrificing certain privileges and “access” to power. I saw a lot of soft ball questions and weak-knee’d patriots all over the thread. That’s the type of constituents the GOPe wants: easily steered sheeple (maybe, like you).

Priebus-Over-Shoulder-Breitbart

These are just some of the comments you made in the article where a moderator (possibly hired) repeated similar lingo, just to deny voters the chance to express their opinions about fraud in Mississippi’s race and to protect Reince from them.

We invited Reince Priebus, Chairman of the RNC, to the RedState Gathering. Normally at the Gathering, with some exceptions, we ask our speakers to take questions from the crowd. Twice now the Chairman of the RNC has come and taken questions from the crowd.  This year, I insisted on asking the questions in a conversational interview format.

After the interview, a number of attendees expressed their anger to me that they could not ask questions.In fact, one was so deeply hostile that after yelling at me, he stormed from the room, yelled at another attendee, then tried yelling at Reince. At the conclusion of the Gathering, he came up to me and apologized and noted his reaction was proof I had done the right thing.

Here’s what I got: 1) you may have exaggerated the story to justify your actions, or 2) the story of the attendee was also exaggerated to portray these voters as an angry mob that has to be dealt with.  You then wrote:

Secondly… more importantly, during the Gathering we became aware of an organized effort to embarrass the Chairman and otherwise disrupt the event. In fact, when I undercut the effort, one person affiliated with one of our sponsors began loudly playing ringtones from his phone to disrupt the event. Another tried to block the video camera recording the event with a sign.

There is nothing conversational about dismissing people’s rightful anger and right to speak up. You should have expected and managed the situation, but the RNC is making a case for not having open primaries anyway so this is just one more reason to justify it. You protected the same Chairman who cynically used an image of a T.E.A. sign in a survey he wants answered to give the impression he is listening.  Is that not enough to sicken you? Post byReince Priebus.

gop

Mr. Erickson, you could use your writing skills to enlighten voters by letting them know that the RNC Chair is a mouthpiece for the GOPe, and with all due respect, a hired liar who looks innocent so he can deceive..why not? It’s true!

You could also start by admitting to yourself that the RNC Chair could not care less about the people he is asking support or opinions from, and show respect for voters by treating him like someone who is supposed to serve and represent us, not a celebrity with a fragile ego. Given all the mischief going on in the establishment, why are you not helping us fight this war against a machine that is desperately seeking to crush us? It is no secret: the GOPe wants to engage us in Death by Suicide. Why take that side? We need people to hold them to task, not be intimidated by them.  They are cowards, remember? Have I missed anything?

Back to the context which I started with: We (Cuban-Americans who fled Fidel Castro’s communist dictatorship) have been called many names:  angry Anti-Castro mob, Cuban Mafia, etc. It’s not new.  The name calling is a smear tactic to intimidate and coerce into submission. Unlike the GOPe who fears the president and media’s “smears”, a true patriot does not care what names they are called.

In the meantime, no one has the right to cast a negative light on people who have a right to complain about a victory they were robbed of and are now being given the runaround on.  You may not agree, but the GOPe is governing in despotic ways.  It may be in the form of dopey surveys and shutting people out at “gatherings” where they were, again, invited to participate, but it’s a red flag for some of us who have been speaking up for a while. Please explain how people taking the time to attend your Q & A and showing up with signs saying #remembermississippi are in any way a threat to Reince Priebus. We have been treated worse and are happy warriors. So what’s the big deal?

A dozen people, that’s it? You couldn’t handle 12 voters. If there isn’t an awareness on your part that the lack of courage to stand up to our establishment is part of the problem, and that because of that corruption conditions are ripe for a revolution (in Cuba it was from the left), then history will repeat itself.

This is America, though, and revolutions arise for all the right reasons, to protect the People, the Truth, God’s stewardship and Independence from tyranny. The corrupt leaders in our party have been paving the way for a corrupt left to be emboldened and move forward to replace us. It should make you stop and think: you should not take for granted what the Good Lord intended for this country, and how it was envisioned by its founders.

My country never had that unique feature in its Constitution. Yes.  Stop. Think.  And Thank Him for history to unfold a revolution of honor and goodness that will replace the evil one in which the rest of you will have all lost your way.

Sincerely,

 

Isabel Matos

Chris McDaniel: I Beat Thad Cochran by 25,000 Votes

Isabel Matos:

So why is it that the MS Republican Executive Committee (the KANGAROO COURT I call it) is not hearing the challenge? It seems the RNC has plans to end open primaries altogether and Mississippi is being used as a prime example why. Of course, they are acting like Third World despots. What are we going to do with the GOPe?

Chris McDaniel: I Beat Thad Cochran by 25,000 Votes

by Matthew Boyle Via Breitbart –
Six weeks after the primary runoff election, Mississippi State Sen. Chris McDaniel is launching his formal legal challenge of the election results, saying the evidence is so conclusive that he will be calling for courts to recognize him as the true victor of the race rather than calling for a new election.
“Chris McDaniel clearly, clearly won the Republican vote in the runoff,” McDaniel attorney Mitch Tyner said at a Monday press conference. “I say that very assuredly because that’s what the mathematics show. It’s not what I’m arguing. After the election, we did some post-election polling. We determined that of the Democrats that did cross over, 71 percent of them admitted they will not support the Republican in the general election. When you take those polling numbers and you go in and do the…

Senator Chris McDaniel Releases Evidence, Establishment Machine Strikes Back With Dirty Tactics

Isabel Matos:

Senator Chris McDaniel writes:

To understand the past few days, this is a must read. From the article:
“Throughout this historic Senate race, it seems every time good news emerges for the Chris McDaniel campaign, the establishment and their cohorts in the media step in and put the brakes on to stop the momentum. Wednesday was a great example of that tactic.
With the filing of the legal challenge on Monday, the McDaniel campaign seized the initiative. After weeks of hearing “put up or shut up” by the Cochran people, Senator McDaniel and his attorney, Mitch Tyner, released evidence of massive vote fraud, likely initiated by the Cochran campaign, in a detailed report that encompassed 243 pages.”

It’s a Small World for Spanish-Speaking Supporters of Sarah Palin Channel!

sarah iowa roguerogue channel

By Isabel Matos

Our post got a mention from the Spanish blogger who has referred to us as “mis amigos” (his friends) at A Time for Choosing.  He says that what I wrote about the Spanish media’s mocking of the Spanish Palin Channel is true, emphasizing in particular that the channel has been mocked because of the $9.95 subscription (that is in reference to the media’s snide remarks about paying the monthly fee for her (Sarah’s) patriotism. He adds that it is also true that where he is from, Spain, no one save for the readers of his Blog, Going Rogue Going Palin, would even know a word about it.  Nothing new under the sun, “querida (dear) Isabel”, he adds. “I’m happy with the subscription rate which is reasonable and I’m loving being a user.” If you want to play you have to pay, he says, and SPC is no exception. So, to the “Rojos” (the Reds):  “It’s been TO HECK with you long ago! I’m all in on Sarah Palin’s latest!” (That is the gist of what was written below):

A vueltas con esto de su nuevo canal de noticias, el “Sarah Palin Channel”, me hago eco de una noticia que me envían mis amigos del blog A Time For Choosing sobre la repercusión que ha tenido entre los medios de comunicación hispanohablantes este lanzamiento. Por descontado, ha sido nulo o, como mucho, se burlan porque hay que abonar una cuota de suscripción, dando a entender que no es más que una treta de los Palin para hacer dinero. Por mi parte, tengo que lamentar que en España, salvo los que leen “Going Rogue, Going Palin”, nadie sepa ni una palabra. Pero eso ya era de suponer, teniendo en cuenta cómo andan las cosas por aquí. Así que, querida Isabel, nada nuevo bajo la capa del sol. Por cierto, sobre lo de la cuota de abono: a mí me parece muy lógico, me parece muy barata y estoy encantado de abonarme. Quien algo quiere, algo le cuesta y el Canal Sarah tiene un coste, evidentemente. Así que, rojos, idos a la mierda; yo me voy a ver lo último que ha colgado Sarah.

[I just want to reiterate that by these posts I am not personally committing to doing versions of the Channel in Spanish on a regular basis. It is experimental. If there is a desire for it.. or a need, it would be enjoyable but it is time-consuming.  Let’s see what happens is what I live by.  No promises. Thanks as always. Isabel]

Translation, Please! Marco Rubio “Explains” Flip on Immigration Stance.

By Isabel Matos

This was part of a conversation in a thread shared in our group which I found amusing.  I think as most people had this reaction when they saw Rubio try explain his flip to Chris, but evaded the question instead. If I explain it too much it takes away the funny.

H:  What, did, this, guy, say? Please, translate?

L:  I was hoping you would know? :)

H:  Ha, L! ;)

I:   Omg. I didn’t understand him LMAO.

L:  I watched this again this morning and thought…what a smug little bastard!

I:   It’s not even funny. Last year I’d post about him and would get tons of attention. No longer. He gets less views than even Jeb. Rubio fell on the sword for him. Hope he’s happy.

F:   His answers sounded like Paul Ryan’s answers, when he was asked similar questions.

Chris Wallace Grills Marco Rubio on Immigration: If Not Political, Why Did You Flip Fox News Sunday

Chris Wallace GRILLS Marco Rubio For flipping On Immigration. Fox News Sunday Chris Wallace grilled Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) Sunday morning over the lawmaker’s shifting immigration policies after his shepherding of comprehensive immigration reform last year cost him mightily among conservative voters.

When I got involved in the issue I knew how difficult is was politically,” Rubio replied. “But I ran for office to make a difference. …I don’t know what it means politically for me or anybody else, but that’s not my job. I didn’t get elected to maintain good poll numbers nationally.”

But if it’s not political, why have you flipped?” Wallace asked, noting that Rubio’s bill had included a path to citizenship along with increased border security, but that Rubio now believes reform should be implemented in stages, with a path to citizenship coming last.

We’re not debating what to do, we’re debating how to do it,” Rubio said. “I’m just telling you, we will never have the votes necessary to pass, in one bill, all of those things. It just won’t happen. So our choices are, we can either continue to beat out head against the wall and try a process for which we’ll never have support, or we can try another way we can make progress on.”

Commie Agitator and Terrorist Advocate Luis V. Gutierrez (D-IL) Gets Carried Away With Histrionics in Favor of DACA

Luis-Gutierrez-E-Verify-LATINO_t750x550-e1373933504890

By Isabel Matos

Illinois representative Luis V. Gutierrez, commie agitator, Ryan’s buddy, and terrorist advocate begins a typical tirade filled with tough talk, a hissy fit and extortion to speak about Republicans.  He had 2 minutes to speak on the House floor but gets so carried away he goes over his time. 8:50-8:53. He says:

How did we get here in the dark of night Republicans are voting to deport Dreamers, take away the DACA Program and make every undocumented immigrant deport-able. In November of 2012 the Republicans were shell-shocked and they spoke of turning over a new leaf with young voters, with Asian voters, women and Latinos.  A year ago I was working with Congressman Sam Johnson and Judge Carter of Texas. I did town hall meetings and public appearances with Judge Carter and with Congressman Balart. Now late on a Friday night you are going after the dreamers. Michele Bachmann and Ted Cruz are writing the script to destroy families. They are taking the Dreamer Act all away, demonizing children at the borders and deporting the dreamers. Republicans say they should go back in the shadows. Late on a Friday night you are going after Dreamers who risk their families by reporting to the Department of  Homeland Security to get right with the law.  Now the Republicans are saying you have to go. Now their opportunities are few and their futures unsure. You want to take that all away.  In the end Let the truth be know the Republican party’s desire is to deport all. It’s suicide in the political strategy. Is there no one in your conference who can stand up and talk sensibly when others in your party want to demonize children? Are you so afraid of your own voters and so frozen in the fear of your own colleagues.  In the end when push comes to shove only cowards scapegoat children. Your party ought to be ashamed of themselves in the dark of the night… (gavel interrupts the gentleman). Shame on all who do not stand up to those children, who won’t stand with the children of the border or the children of the neighborhoods in our communities who will not stand with this bill.

I actually enjoyed watching him squirm since they lost but it’s no joke.  Here’s a picture of Luis with Paul Ryan last year who he has been proud to call a friend and who can forget Gutierrez’s support of the Skittles campaign in support of Trayvon Martin who was killed by George Zimmerman in self-defense. ryan and gutierrez .

House Vote Underway: What is DACA and Who Is Doing What To Stop It?

 cruz

By Isabel Matos

UPDATE:  8/1/2014 10:30 Ted Cruz:  Very encouraging to see Republicans in the House uniting to‪#‎StopObamasAmnesty‬.

UPDATE 8/1/2014 10:20 p.m.  See Results here

The issue being discussed on the House floor is the DACA Program.  This is the program the Senator Cruz was referring that is allowing for Obama’s amnesty.  The vote on this Border Security Spending Bill has been underway.  For your information:

DACA stands for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals

The president has been granting amnesty via a provision which Senator Cruz says is the root cause of the border crisis.  The number you may still be able to call is 202 224 3121.  Tell your Congressman you are against amnesty and that you do not want DACA program in the spending bill that is being passed. Say you support Senator Cruz’s effort to stop Obama’s amnesty. Boehner’s Border Bill was stopped yesterday thanks to so many who called in to complain that it didn’t go far enough.  The vote tonight will be at 9 pm. I will add updates as needed.

From the Department of Homeland Security

Over the past three years, this Administration has undertaken an unprecedented effort to transform the immigration enforcement system into one that focuses on public safety, border security and the integrity of the immigration system. As the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) continues to focus its enforcement resources on the removal of individuals who pose a danger to national security or a risk to public safety, including individuals convicted of crimes with particular emphasis on violent criminals, felons, and repeat offenders, DHS will exercise prosecutorial discretion as appropriate to ensure that enforcement resources are not expended on low priority cases, such as individuals who came to the United States as children and meet other key guidelines.  Individuals who demonstrate that they meet the guidelines below may request consideration of deferred action for childhood arrivals for a period of two years, subject to renewal, and may be eligible for employment authorization.

You may request consideration of deferred action for childhood arrivals if you:

Were under the age of 31 as of June 15, 2012;Came to the United States before reaching your 16th birthday;Have continuously resided in the United States since June 15, 2007, up to the present time;Were physically present in the United States on June 15, 2012, and at the time of making your request for consideration of deferred action with USCIS;Entered without inspection before June 15, 2012, or your lawful immigration status expired as of June 15, 2012;Are currently in school, have graduated or obtained a certificate of completion from high school, have obtained a general education development (GED) certificate, or are an honorably discharged veteran of the Coast Guard or Armed Forces of the United States; and have not been convicted of a felony, significant misdemeanor, three or more other misdemeanors, and do not otherwise pose a threat to national security or public safety.

Individuals can call USCIS at 1-800-3… you can get the rest at their site.

In the meantime check out the spin being spewed all over this article in the Huffington Post. Predictable.

While Cruz, Sessions Thwart Boehner’s Bill, Warn: Massive Amnesty for 5 Mill, Rinos Advance Democratic Border Bill!

Immigration Presser

By Isabel Matos

This is to recap John Boehner’s loss tonight (July 31st). On the House Border Bill (according to his aide), Boehner’s plan was to:

make it easier to deport Central American minors who have entered the United States illegally, provide $659 million to federal agencies through the end of the fiscal year, and change a 2008 anti-trafficking law. The funding would be significantly less than the $3.7 billion that President Obama has requested from Congress and less than the $1.5 billion initially floated by Boehner and his allies earlier this month — a figure that was cut due to conservative opposition.

In his attempt to win over conservatives,

Boehner shrank the border crisis bill to the point where the appropriations provided were being presented as a stop-gap solution for the remainder of this fiscal year ending Sept. 30—not the rest of calendar 2014.

It did not get far, thank goodness!

cruz

Senator Cruz played a crucial role in preventing Boehner’s border bill form passing. He

praised House Republicans for scrapping a vote on their plan that many in the GOP had hoped would give them cover on a volatile issue. He pinned the blame back on the White House for the logjam. And Cruz defended holding a Wednesday night meeting in his office with about a dozen House conservatives, saying he simply reiterated the same message he’s been saying in recent weeks: That any border package must take aim at a program delaying deportation proceedings for certain undocumented immigrants brought to the country illegally as children.  Read more

Jeff Sessions had joined Ted Cruz in his effort to stop the provision that has allowed the President Obama to grant Amnesty to illegals, which they believe will be as massive as five million if he is not stopped. But it was on Wednesday when Senators Cruz and Sessions met with House Republicans that they exerted enough influence to thwart the dopey bill John Boehner was trying to pass as it granted Obama most of what he wanted, including out-of-control amnesty.

Sessions had ripped the House’s border bill as “surrender” to Obama’s plans to reportedly grant deportation relief and work permits to as many as five million more people in the country illegally. And Cruz rallied Republicans to back his legislation aimed at “stopping President Obama’s amnesty.”

Cruz and Sessions met with:

Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) and Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Tex.) were at Cruz’s closed-press session, as well as more than a dozen other House Republicans. Rep. Matt Salmon (R-Ariz.), a member of the House GOP’s working group on the border, is also planning to attend. Cruz wanted House Republicans to defund Obama’s Deferred Action for Child Arrivals (DACA) program, a suggestion Boehner had resisted. Cruz asked House Republicans on Wednesday to tell Boehner to include this in his plan or risk.

Cruz was scapegoated by Peter King who said Cruz was trying to “hijack” the Republican Party (chuckle..). Boehner’s aide had declined comment on Cruz’s actions on Wednesday. What a surprise. The delay today was reason (for us) to celebrate but an embarrassment for Boehner. On the Senate front; however, trouble is brewing. It is not enough to put out this fire, now we still have to worry about the next one:

A total 11 Senate Republicans—including Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL)—crossed the aisle to vote to advance Senate Democrats’ border spending bill.

The 11 Republicans who voted with almost all the Democrats are: Rubio and Sens. Kelly Ayotte (R-NH), Saxby Chambliss (R-GA), Susan Collins (R-ME), Bob Corker (R-TN), John Cornyn (R-TX), Chuck Grassley (R-IA), Dean Heller (R-NV), Orrin Hatch (R-UT), Johnny Isakson (R-GA), and Lisa Murkowski (R-AK).

That will require an entirely new article. In the meantime, please do not MISS THIS clip of Ted Cruz on Greta Van Susteren. It is important legislation Senator Cruz wants to pass. His explanations are always very clear, based on facts and reasonable arguments.

Ted blames both parties for failing to secure the border.  They should have done their basic job a long time ago.

What’s happening at the border right now, the direct approximate cause of it is President Obama’s Amnesty triggered in 2012 when the President unilaterally granted Amnesty, or the executive order which …

If you look at the facts: In 2011 there were roughly 6,000 unaccompanied children apprehended trying to come across into this country. Then in June of 2012 the  President signed an order that granted amnesty to some 800,000 people who had entered illegally as kids. What it said is even though you broke our laws and even though you’re not entitled to be here, we’re going to allow you to stay and we are give you a permit to work. It was deliberately and directly targeted at people who had entered as kids. The predicted consequence of that is that it created an enormous incentive for more kids to come in.  If you are granting amnesty to people to come as kids, others kids will come It’s gone now from to 6,000 children in 2011 to an expected 90,000 children this year. and 145,000 next year. They are coming because they believe they are going to get Obama’s Amnesty.

How do you eliminate the promise to amnesty?  Ted Cruz introduced 2-page (short) legislation.  It says The President Obama does not have the authority to grant Amnesty to any new immigrants who come into this country.  One very disturbing thing is just a few months ago President Obama asked his Secretary of Homeland Security to prepare a plan for how President Obama could grant amnesty to 5 or 6 million more people here illegally. Ted Cruz thinks the President intends to do it just a few months before the election just like he did in 2012.   If we pass into law an explicit provision that the President can’t do this it goes a long way to eliminating the promise of amnesty which is why these kids are coming.

The rest of the clip is about the House passing a resolution for John Boehner to have the power and the authority to sue the President.
