GOP Will Bring Amnesty Back After Election
A Commentary by J. D. Longstreet
They've lost what little trust I had in them. The Establishment Republicans in the US House of Representatives, I mean.
me be clear. If the GOP manages to pass amnesty for illegal aliens
through the House of Representatives before November of 2016, they will
have to ram it down the throats of the conservative base. If they are
prepared to do that, then we invite then to, by all means, go for it.
But they should be prepared to assume minority party status in a three
party system afterwards.
I say that because conservatives are preparing to bolt the party and wipe the dust of the GOP off their feet on the way out.
If the conservatives pull out, you can stick a fork in the GOP, for it will be done.
time also for the Tea Party to begin throwing it's considerable weight
around. I would respectfully suggest that the Tea Party leaders need to
huddle and come up with new plans to further the conservative cause
within the GOP and the Congress as a whole. We all know where "nice
In an article entitled: "Memo to Conservatives:
Republicans Aren’t Your Friends" authored by Matthew Vadum at Canada
Free Press, Mr. Vadum says the following: "Republicans are nice
people. Too many Republicans think it’s wrong to criticize other
Republicans. This failure to be forthright has had consequences. It has
allowed the Republican Party to take up political space it has no
business occupying as it embraces left-wing statist tyranny. Much of
the time, the GOP is merely Democrat-lite.
House Speaker John
Boehner (R-Ohio) and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) are
so dangerously out of touch and out of control nowadays in part because
other Republicans have allowed them to get that way. Boehner and
McConnell regard conservatives as a nuisance to be overcome, co-opted,
subverted, and if necessary, eliminated.
A new way of thinking is required." -- SOURCE: http://canadafreepress.com/index.php/article/61027?utm_source=twitterfeed&utm_medium=facebook
could not agree more with Mr. Vadum. It is time for the Tea Party to
say to the establishment republicans: "You owe us -- BIG TIME -- and we
are here to collect! No more relegation to the back benches of the
House or Senate. We want committee chairs and positions on committees
and any other power position within which conservatives can boost the
I left the Republican Party after
approximately 50 years as a registered Republican. I left for two
reasons -- the GOP's swing to the left and the manner in which the
establishment Republicans continued to treat conservative Republicans --
to wit -- as if conservatives were the red-headed step child.
I agree with Mr. Vadum when he says: "The time has come for
conservatives in the Republican Party to stop being nice. RINOs Karl
Rove (who nearly lost George W. Bush the presidency twice), Boehner,
McConnell, and the rest of the GOP congressional leadership have
declared war on the Tea Party, the same movement to which the Republican
Party owes its continuing existence. Boehner would not be speaker of
the House if the Tea Party hadn’t boosted the GOP in 2010 and 2012." --
claim the GOP establishment have declared war against the Tea Party.
If that is true, they should be aware they will lose. See, the Tea
Party IS the grassroots of the Republican Party. That means the
establishment will be pitted against the base, the foundation of their
party and any damage done will be to themselves and not to the

before the November elections. However, I feel certain they will revive
the issue and pass some form of Amnesty -- quickly -- after the

then there is this: "National Review Online reached out to Goodlatte’s
(Bob Goodlatte R., Va., chairman of the House Judiciary Committee)
office several times regarding the drafting of new legislation, the
possibility of that legislation being drafted this year, and whether or
not Chairman Goodlatte had ruled out that possibility. The responses
from a committee aide suggest that he hasn’t."
The article at
National Review Online continues: "It’s understandable, of course, for
politicians to keep their options open. But it also underscores the
point that the media doom and gloom surrounding immigration reform in
the House is entirely overblown."

desperately needs a two-party system rather than the one and-a-half
party system we have now. We can't do that as long as the GOP is riven
in twain as it is today.
America stands at a critical moment in
its history and now is not the time for division, derision, and/or
contemptible conduct to weaken the resolve of those who wish to conduct
the nation back towards its constitutional foundation.
the GOP cannot pull itself together, then there appears no recourse
except that which allows for conservatives to split from the party --
and found a party of their own. At the moment it may appear the least
appealing, but it may, in the long run, save the nation.
an exasperating situation for those of us who dwell on the political
right. With a resounding victory at hand, one we can almost taste, to
have the engine that drives our conservative train faltering when the
finish line is in sight is immeasurably frustrating.
If I could grasp the GOP by the shoulders, I'd shake the heck out of them and exclaim in their collective faces: "Pull it together, people!"
final reminder: If the GOP is truly serious about ridding itself of
conservatives, Tea Party and otherwise, then all they need do is pass
any form of immigration reform that allows a so-called pathway for
citizenship -- amnesty -- for the illegal aliens within our borders.
When the southern border with Mexico is secured, THEN and only THEN can we seriously look at immigration reform.
Two hundred years before Christ walked this earth, the Chinese began
building a wall that eventually stretched 13,170 miles long and across
15 provinces. America can place a man on the moon, a robot on Mars, and
a telescope in space that (they tell us) has the potential of seeing
all the way back to the moment of creation -- but we can't seem to build a wall (or fence) only 1,954 miles long?
that is needed is the political will to get the job done. (Speaking of
jobs ... how many jobs would building that wall create?)
