QOTD: “I’m afraid this is beginning to border on a cult of personality for people on the left. I happen to agree with many of President Obama’s policies. But in our system it is often as important how you how you do something as what you do. I think that many people will look back at this period in history and see nothing but confusion as to why people remained so silent when the president asserted these types of unilateral actions. You have a president who is claiming the right to basically rewrite or ignore or negate federal laws. That is a very dangerous thing. It has nothing to do with the policies, it has to do with the power…

…A system in which a single individual is allowed to rewrite legislation or ignore legislation is a system that borders on authoritarianism. I don’t believe that we are that system yet. But we cannot ignore that we’re beginning to become a system that is a pretense of democracy if a president is allowed to take a law and just simply say I’m going to ignore this, or I’m going to shift funds that weren’t appropriated by Congress to this area.

The president’s state of the union indicated this type of unilateralism that he has adopted as a policy. Now, many people view that as somehow it is empowering. In my view it is dangerous, that what he is suggesting is to essentially put our system off line. This is not the first time that convenience has become the enemy of principle. But we’ve never seen it to this extent.” –Constitutional Lawyer Jonathan Turley, a liberal

QOTD: “The coming weeks will see the formal start of the GOP House leadership’s attempt to sneak an immigration amnesty through the Republican caucus and into law. We don’t know the exact details of the proposals, but we know enough:

1) There will be some form of legalization (conditional amnesty) for the 11 million illegal immigrants already here… [and] once the bill has passed the Democratic campaign to paint the GOP as racist for not granting general citizenship to the whole group will begin.

2) There will be an attempt to describe Speaker Boehner’s “piecemeal” collection of immigration bills as an “enforcement first” arrangement that will prevent another, future illegal wave despite the incentive created by what will be two successive amnesties. Since Democrats and Latino groups would never go for an actual “enforcement first” approach–e.g., enacting universal E-verify, an exit-entry system, building a fence and waiting a few years for legal challenges to peter out–this claim will necessarily be a fraud…

It takes some chutzpah for Boehner to make his amnesty push now, given the sour jobs news, falling measured support for amnesty, and the need for party unity in the coming midterm elections. You’d think the employment news alone–almost 3 unemployed Americans for every available job–would cause savvy lobbyists to postpone any attempt to push for a massive addition to the unskilled and skilled workforce…. Maybe that could fly in a boom. But now? …

If you are, get your dialing finger ready. –Mickey Kaus

POLITICAL SUICIDE: Bend Over! GOP Prepares to Perform Amnesty Colonoscopy on Conservative Base

I shook the Magic 8-Ball and it read: “Signs point to yes“.

In January 2012, the “Immigration Reform” page on the official House website of Representative Bob Goodlatte, chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, said: “In no event should we grant amnesty to those who have broken our laws and entered the country illegally. Doing so would simply invite more illegal immigration in the future.”

…Now, though, this prohibition has been scrubbed from his “Immigration Reform” page. Instead, this page now talks about how “we can all agree that our nation’s immigration system is broken” and the need to be thoughtful in remaking U.S. immigration policies. Earlier versions of this page had an almost single-minded focus on the need to enforce immigration laws. The notion that our immigration system is “broken” is often a key argument of allies of the White House’s immigration agenda.

According to Politico, Chairman Goodlatte said in a Telemundo interview that is set to air on Sunday that he is very open to legalizing current illegal immigrants…

…Representative Goodlatte’s Telemundo comments come at a time when some in House leadership are trying to revive the fortunes of a big immigration deal or series of deals — on Friday morning on the House floor, Majority Leader Eric Cantor argued that “immigration reform could be an economic boon to this country.”

The insanity of this effort on the part of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and GOP Congressional leaders cannot be overstated.

Point 1: In the midst of a horrific, ongoing, five-year long unemployment crisis, the importation of millions of low-skilled, largely illiterate, non-English-speaking aliens will crush the wages of blue-collar American citizens.

Point 2: On the heels of the unfolding Obamacare catastrophe — with millions of Americans already having lost their health insurance and up to 120 million more poised to lose their insurance next year — Republicans intend to hand Obama and the entire Democrat Party a huge legislative victory.

Point 3: Such an act would also represent a slap in the face to the vast majority of American people — and especially the conservative Republican base — who oppose Amnesty. Republicans would pay a horrific price for such traitorous behavior in the 2014 Midterms.

Point 4: Legalization is certain to result in eventual citizenship for these illegals (as confirmed by Democrat Rep. Luis Gutierrez) and would prove devastating for the GOP in the years to come. Pew Research reports that 88 percent of illegals would vote Democrat if given the chance. And they will be given that chance, if they are legalized.

This is political suicide for the Republican Party. In their zeal for corporate donations, they are abandoning the base and handing the opposition a tremendous political victory.

Should this come to pass, let the record show that John Boehner, Eric Cantor and Mitch McConnell were the architects of the destruction of the Republican Party.
