I hate Bipartisanship! Part 2 (new video). I have to be brutally honest. I have been a bit bored lately and used the time to translate some clips I found while surfing through channels on Youtube. This one is on pro-amnesty journalist Jorge Ramos’s show, ‘Al Punto’ where Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart appears with community organizer Luis V. Gutierrez to give an update on the push for amnesty. Yes, it is from last year, but if you see this like I do, you won’t be jaded. I promise. It’s always jaw-dropping to feel like a fly on a wall during a sneaky conversation, especially when the conversation reveals how a deal is being cut in DC by representatives. (Where are our hard-hitting news anchors on this issue? And why isn’t there more pressure for them to answer to us, not Ramos?) Diaz-Balart represents many Venezuelans in his district, but amnesty is never a win for Republicans. He is Cuban-American and supposedly anti-communist, just like my two other representatives, so there is no excuse for this. It is shady!
With the help of one or two Congressmen at a time, communist agitator Gutierrez gets what he wants. Seeing him work the host and his colleague is entertaining (at least to me it is), but the reality is that we are, unfortunately, witnessing the GOPe getting very comfortable being out of the shadows on this issue. John Boehner has always been pro-amnesty as Diaz-Balart attests to, but has held it back because of internal issues in our party. Despite our pressure, we lost the latest fight earlier this year on the same day Republicans greeted Netanyahu and won some praise. They allowed the funding of a DHS bill without provisions for stopping DACA or Obama’s Executive Action for two years.
We cannot get tired of calling out Republicans on this. We have to be as pernicious and consistent as our foe, Rep. Luis Gutierrez, shows. Again, it’s been a few slow days news-wise even with the presidential announcements.. kind of a lull, but I hope you enjoy this behind-the- scenes (sort of..) peek proving Boehner’s duplicity we have complained about all along, the embarrassing way some Republicans from the party that Bush has built have fought for this, and the way the extortionists are working them and hurting our country. Please remember that Jeb is scheduled to keynote with Gutierrez at a pro-amnesty Hispanic convention two weeks from today. I just can’t wait. [Yes, I can!]
