Excuse me but I thought it was the Southern border where all our problems and illegal democRATS were coming from???
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.
“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.
“[J]udges … should be always men of learning and experience in the laws, of exemplary morals, great patience, calmness, coolness, and attention. Their minds should not be distracted with jarring interests; they should not be dependent upon any man, or body of men.”

Passed by stupid politicians catering to those whom won’t think, but will vote for the so called Senators and Representatives whom will do anything to stay in office..
Cripes the hole being dug gets deeper and deeper everyday..
Sen. Ted Cruz’s Immigration Reform Bill Amendment DOA In Senate; Employers Fined For Hiring Citizens
Hello? Benghazi? 4 murdered while Buck Ofama diddled…
Buck Ofama and his war on everything..
But world ignores him….
Extend your bayonet range!!!
Huh? WTF? Another conspiracy theory?
If Rubio was ever a true conservative he has made the fastest turn around in recorded history. He is now holding, tenuously, onto “RINO” (Republican In Name Only) and leaning, hard, toward liberal!
Betrayal is all the Amnesty Bill is!!
This would be a start!! If we cannot shitcan the whole thing!
Under her amendment (Amdt. No. 1348), an illegal alien applying for amnesty who cannot meet minimum English standards will be ineligible for legal status and a work permit.
Lets just tell the kids it is all right to fornicate away…Our Public Schools ….Suck!
The “facts” on the Senate immigration reform bill are misleading, false and we are being sold another bill of lies. The Democrat Party, and unfortunately some Republicans, are sharing “facts” about the bill that simply are not accurate. At The Brenner Brief, we have been busy on social media…
I tried the political…I tried being active in our local political scene….I sought the GOP nomination to run for State Rep. They choose a known ‘Name’ the Mayor of a small burg and construction company owner. Whom did shit to run a campaign and win…They even came back to me, the House Speaker even sought me out at the State convention to see if I would be interested in running, as their picked candidate was worthless. He stayed in and lost, not by much, but still lost to a damn union loving, socialist assO!
I ran for School Board and drew in 2500 plus votes, just missing out. Scared a lot of people as I was quite vocal in displaying my displeasure with the local School system.
n continued to be active, but lately am seeing a lot of nothing from the local GOP scene. A number of so called leaders of the BPOU seem to be more left leaning then I like..IN fact a couple are full of themselves and I think are more Dhimmicrap then anything else.
Sample in comments section here..
So now? I pretty much let my feelings be known, my total disgust with our current libtard, socialist in office…Through LTE‘s. social media, face to face if the morons would ever have a ‘townhall’ meeting when working people can make it. I make no friends locally with my Right leaning views.
This is a miscarriage…A big, huge, miscarriage of Justice…My Rights were not given by Man. My Rights are mine and if you think for one minute I will give my Right to speak out and my Right to defend myself….Eff you, eff the horse your riding, the dog your following and the sheep your chasing!!
Remember that…Molon Labe.
