GOA: Thank You for Tying up the Capitol Hill Phone Lines on the Anti-gun Amnesty Bill

Thank You for Tying up the Capitol Hill Phone Lines
on the Anti-gun Amnesty Bill

Your voice has made a difference!

 

“One thing that’s not being reported about this whole immigration thing is the degree to which it’s opposed by the people in this country,” said Rush Limbaugh.  “You try calling, you can’t get through [because] you are inundating them.  You are overwhelming them.”

The U.S. Senate passed the anti-gun amnesty bill today on a 68-32 vote.

Through this long, hard fight, you guys tied up the Capitol Hill phone lines in opposition to the bill.  And your voice has resonated, much to the chagrin of the anti-gun politicos on Capitol Hill.

At first blush, the final tally might seem like an overwhelming loss for our side, but the fact is, it represents the proverbial “kiss of death” for Chuck Schumer’s anti-gun, amnesty forces.

Senator Schumer & Co. fell far short of the goal they set for passing the amnesty bill — a goal they HAD TO ACHIEVE if they were going to have ANY momentum at all in the House.

Chuck Todd, a perennial water-carrier for the Obama administration, lamented this on MSNBC this week:

“The sweet spot was 75-plus in the Senate because that number would have meant that they would have gotten half of the Republican conference [and would put pressure on House Republicans].  Instead, it looks like they are not going to get that.”

Several times, Senator Schumer tried to achieve his “sweet spot” of 70-75 votes -– which would have allowed him to claim that his bill had momentum going into the House.

But several times, Schumer failed.  And on the final vote, he fell almost ten votes short of what he needed.

This is just the beginning of the bad news in store for Schumer.  Now that his bill goes over to the House, we have a really nasty surprise for him.

It’s called a “blue slip,” and Congressman Steve Stockman (R-TX) is pushing the House leadership to pass a blue slip resolution that would send the Senate amnesty bill into the trash heap because it raises taxes — an initiative that, under the Constitution, must begin in the House of Representatives.

This is not the only problem the Senate bill has.  In addition to the blue slip problem, both liberal and conservative media are declaring the bill is “Dead on Arrival” in the House for various reasons:

* We have revived the “Hastert Rule,” and Boehner is now saying that he won’t bring up the Senate-passed immigration bill for a vote.

* Rep. Tom Cole (R-OK) was quoted in The Washington Post yesterday as saying that the House won’t seriously debate any immigration reform until mid-Fall.

* And in the Senate, we will filibuster any effort to stick it onto a new House-initiated vehicle.

Trust us that the media would have used a 70-80 vote margin to try to create the impression of massive bipartisan momentum. They can’t do that easily now.

Now that the Senate has finished its consideration of the amnesty bill, the battle moves to the House — probably in a few months.  So now’s a good time for everyone to send a parting, closing shot to their Senators.

You can see how your Senators voted here.  Every Democrat voted for the bill, including the following 14 Republicans:  Alexander (TN), Ayotte (NH), Chiesa (NJ), Collins (ME), Corker (TN), Flake (AZ), Graham (SC), Hatch (UT), Heller (NV), Hoeven (ND), Kirk (IL), McCain (AZ), Murkowski (AK) and Rubio (FL).

ACTION:  Contact your Senators Please thank those Senators who voted against the anti-gun amnesty bill and reprimand those who voted for it.

GOA: We’re Winning on Guns and Amnesty

 
But we need to cut off Obama’s escape routes
“The reason President Obama’s gun control proposals were killed [is] because hundreds of thousands of Americans began slamming the phone lines, and all of the Senators that were leaning towards supporting it suddenly said, ‘Holy cow, the folks back home don’t like this.’ [There] is nothing more powerful than the conservative grassroots when we are engaged and letting our voice be heard.”
Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX), June 19, 2013
 
Your grassroots efforts are making a world of difference on Capitol Hill.  But we need to keep the pressure on if we are going to defeat the anti-gun amnesty bill.
We’ve asked you repeatedly to focus your attention on the Senate bill; today, we take a brief look at the House.
But first, here’s a brief update on White House efforts to resurrect gun control.
Biden’s plug goes virtually ignored by media
 
If a tree falls in the forest, does it make a sound?
We’ll never know.  Joe Biden’s Tuesday press conference to renew his push for gun control went almost completely unreported.  The notable exception was an MSNBC report that the NSA scandal made gun control less likely than before.
The liberal media, instead, spent the last couple of days lamenting that “the air had been take out of the push for [the anti-gun immigration bill].”
What will Boehner do on anti-gun amnesty?
While pro-gun House members held an anti-amnesty press conference, your calls and e-mails to “swing” senators lowered the chances that key members of the Senate GOP might go for a do-nothing sell-out “compromise.”
As Senator Ted Cruz told Rush Limbaugh yesterday, “[There] is nothing more powerful than the conservative grassroots when we are engaged and letting our voice be heard.”
All the while, House Speaker John Boehner told reporters, to their horror, that he wouldn’t bring an anti-gun amnesty bill to the floor over the objections of a majority of House Republicans.  According to anti-gun reporter Anne Kornblut of The Washington Post:  “That’s a real tough one.”
And California Congressman Dana Rohrbacher predicted that Boehner would lose his job if he violated that pledge.
So have we won yet?
Boehner was asked by anti-gun reporters whether he might send a conservative immigration bill to a House-Senate conference –- and allow the conference to turn it into an anti-gun monstrosity.  When asked whether he might rely on Democrats to pass an anti-gun conference report, Boehner replied:  “We’ll see when we get there.”
So that’s today’s task:  To make sure Boehner doesn’t use an anti-gun House-Senate conference to circumvent Republicans in the House.
ACTION:  Click here to contact your Representative.  Ask him to insure that no House-passed immigration bill be sent to conference with an anti-gun amnesty bill from the Senate.

Or so the UN thinks. Remember…Light blue helmets shall  make good targets!!  Once again I say. Boot the UN out sell their buildings and tell them to have fun in some pisshole country with some despotic leader whom won’t through money away on them as the US of A does!

The United Nations Is Prepping For Global Gun Control

Some thoughts from Texas AG.

Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott on UN Arms Trade Treaty

The new UN treaty threatens your rights:

  • It doesn’t recognize the individual right to keep and bear arms or the fundamental right to defend yourself, your family, or your property;
  • It empowers a new UN bureaucracy focused on firearms restrictions that will be run by international bureaucrats who are not accountable to the people of the United States .
  • It could impose firearm registration requirements that may empower international authorities to get information about American citizens and businesses.

This UN treaty does more than trample Second Amendment rights. It also threatens to erode all liberties guaranteed to Americans in the Constitution by giving the UN power to govern our lives.

Spine? The current GOP has none and the Left never has had one.

Rush Limbaugh and the Need for Spine

The Politico is reporting (read: let’s wait for a second source to confirm it) that the RNC, well, “[t]he Republican National Committee has chosen a Karl Rove-linked voter data project called Liberty Works to help it compete with Democrats in the digital arena. Liberty Works will team up with Data Trust, whose chairman of the board is former RNC Chairman Mike Duncan, committee spokeswoman Kirsten Kukowski confirmed to Politico.”

This is deeply troubling, if accurate, because I maintain the GOP must distance itself from the Bush administration players to start being successful again. Further, for all of Karl Rove’s fine attributes, he is also largely a direct mail guy who learned at the foot of Lee Atwater and never really learned anything after Atwater passed. I’m just not sure, after the 2012 race, that this is a wise investment. Direct mail guys believe the data is the value and what Team Obama discovered is that the tools to analyze the data are the value.

This concerns me. As a friend said on twitter yesterday, the GOP motto for fixing itself seems to be “incest is best.”

And this whole thing, excepting the incest crack, gets me to Rush Limbaugh.

Democrats are Worried

Democrats are worried – about President Obama’s agenda. About his whole agenda. I trust that includes Obamacare. Two pollsters, who call themselves “lifelong Democrats,” sound the alarm in POLITICO, saying the president is “determined to pursue a partisan agenda – the country be damned.” Former Clinton pollster, Douglas Schoen and former Carter pollster, Patrick Caddell warn:

“Obama is not trying to unite the country. He’s waging a class-based battle for political gain. His goal is to win back the House for Democrats in 2014, giving him a united Congress for his last two years in office and allowing him to pursue the most expansive government in American history.”

Obama’s “overconfidence”, say Schoen and Carter, can be blamed on a “visionless, disorganized Republican Party and a docile, shamelessly partisan media.” They also blame Congressional Democrats for not criticizing the president and for failing to put country first and party second. They further charge that, by turning Obama’s national campaign organization (OFA) into an full-time advocacy organization, “Obama has taken the Saul Alinsky organizing vision to a national level.”

What if Obama is successful? Who would resist? I thought about this as I watched the movie “Les Miserablés.” (More on this in a moment…) What if all those youthful Karl Marx supporters praising their ” Obama phones ” at the White House on election night keep Democrats in power in the Senate and …

Food Stamp Nation TheDC’s Caroline May reports on a depressing statistic:

“One in four children in America participated in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or food stamps, in fiscal year 2011, according to data from the United States Department of Agriculture and U.S. Census Bureau. The USDA’s “Characteristics of Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Households: Fiscal Year 2011” shows that in 2011, 19.9 million children, or people under 18, received food stamp benefits. In 2011, the Census estimates there were 73.9 million children under age 18, meaning that 26.9 percent of children, or approximately one in four, were on food stamps in 2011.”

Guatemalan Children Starve Due To Ethanol Mandates

With its corn-based diet and proximity to the United States, Central America has long been vulnerable to economic riptides related to the United States’ corn policy. Now that the United States is using 40 percent of its crop to make biofuel, it is not surprising that tortilla prices have doubled in Guatemala, which imports nearly half of its corn.

When do the people’s opinion matter to the lawmakers in Congress? How many more children do we have to see die? And how many more bogus promotional sound bites do we have to have from the National Rifle Association that don’t tell the truth about gun violence in this country? It’s not just laws, it is a societal problem. But we have to take the step forward and do something right.”

Charles Krauthammer: ‘In a second term, Obama is going to show who he really is’

According to Krauthammer, Obama is already making good on his March 2012 comments to then-Russian President Dmitry Medvedev that he would have “more flexibility” after Election Day.
