Color me shocked, shocked I tell ya! Another republican to join the bandwagon and vote Aye on the so-called ‘Immigration Reform Bill’…so far that bill contains over a thousand pages last I heard, that alone should be telling in more ways than one. You can be sure there will be more added to it before the senate is done piling on more with other amendments etc etc.

Here’s the report…and of course she oversimplified what’s inside that bill while talking to Bob Schieffer this morning. While watching this today I had to wonder if she’s read it all herself, but heck…’at this point, what difference does it make‘! Don’t ya suppose this will be another example of ‘you have to vote on it first to know what’s in it‘ type of thing!

This is via Mediaite:

On CBS’ Face the Nation, New Hampshire Senator Kelly Ayotte announced her support for the Gang of Eight’s immigration reform bill, a contentious piece of legislation currently being debated in the Senate. Ayotte’s support, along with that of other high-profile Republicans like John McCain, Lindsey Graham, and Orrin Hatch, would make the bill’s passage considerably more likely.

“This is a big deal,” host Bob Schieffer said.

“This is a thoughtful bipartisan solution to a tough problem,” Ayotte said. “I looked at the border security provisions; the e-verify to make sure we control who’s getting a job in this country; and also making sure that there’s a better legal immigration system, bring the high-tech workers here to make sure that we can have the best and the brightest here in this country to grow our economy; and finally the eleven million—bringing them out of the shadows, in a tough but fair way, for them to earn citizenship, go to the back of the line, pay taxes, pass the criminal background checks, learn English. So this is a good bipartisan solution and I look forward to supporting it.”

Schieffer pointed out that Ayotte’s support renders a GOP filibuster next to impossible.

“I don’t think anybody wants to filibuster this,” Ayotte said. “This is a debate we have to have for the nation and the status quo is unacceptable. We need to solve this problem to make sure that we have the work force we need, and that we don’t have another wave of illegal immigration and that’s what needs to happen.”

The Gang of Eight, in order to ensure the stamp of bipartisanship, are aiming for seventy votes for the bill. More conservative senators like Jeff Sessions, John Cornyn and Ted Cruz have been pressuring bill co-author Marco Rubio to push the provisions toward the right, some say with the sole intent of making it unacceptable to Democrats.

Watch Ayotte’s interview here, via CBS:

Since it’s looking like a slam dunk in the Senate for passage…what do you think will happen when it gets to the House? Passage or not?

    One other thing folks…why do some of these congress-critters and talking-heads keep using the figure 11 million illegals in this country when we know it’s more like 30 million or more. Every-time I hear that 11 million number said I want to slap them silly and tell them to snap out of it!

    Intentional lies…it do get old!

Reminds me of Arafat saying one thing to the world and going back to the Palestinians and doing a 189, thats Rubio and the Criminal Gang of 8 traitors giving our monies and our country away to people that did not earn or enter here legally. The Traitors of 8 think they can just rewrite laws as they see fit.

  3. a vote for this treason is sounding the death nell for the country as we know it…..this will complete Obongo’s transformation……we will never be able to get the country back if these Senatorial jack-offs vote for amnesty for 30 million of the barbaric horde of drunken Mexicans and give them a pathway to citizenship……every last one of them will vote for democrats and that will be the death nell for the country……we will be buried in debt paying for their section 8 housing, health care, schooling, Obongo phones and every other god-damn thing they want for free as well as having to imprison thousands of drunken Mexican criminals……….

    these sons-a-bitches like Rubio and Ryan that are supporting this amnesty bullsh!t need to be horse whipped for this crap………….even though amnesty won’t make it through the House, this is Obongo’s plan to try and capture the House in the 2014 elections by using this amnesty as a wedge issue……….

    what needs to be done is to move the U.S. Military to the Mexican border and build some bases and patrol the boarder with American troops……seal the country shut…….shut down the boarder completely and make it a militarized zone……..who gives a sh!t whether the the Mexicans like it or not……

    the last nail in the coffin that will complete Obongo’s transformation is Obongo’s amnesty of 30 million drunken Mexicans……..we will never be able to get the country back if amnesty prevails and is made the law of the land………

      I’ve heard here and there that the House plans on doing the illegal immigration reform bill piecemeal…which scared me too. – Then if the senate and house get together on some kind of conference committee and try to pass something that way…that isn’t looking good to me either.

      That ain’t the half of it either. They are all going to be eligible for Social Security, Medicaid and Medicare so Americans retirement age minimums will have to increase up to 69 or even 70 to pay for the illegals benefits. Your contributions to SS are going to HAVE to go up. Congress and their employees do not participate in SS. They have their own private plan paying much more. Our own Congress critters are our own worst enemies, far worse than Islam.

Unsaid in this deal is they get to bring family along, lets see… 11 million X 5 minimum = 55 million new Democrats. The whole of Mexico will migrate here bringing their Cartel violence and all. Our Governance is totally out of control, it is a faceless, lawless Government. We have 535 Representatives of the people with probably no more than 10 trying to help the people they represent. The rest are useless.

      The generational camp…
      Posted on May 28, 2013 by Battlefield USA
      “When an opponent declares, ‘I will not come over to your side,’ I calmly say, ‘Your child belongs to us already.… What are you? You will pass on. Your descendants, however, now stand in the new camp. In a short time they will know nothing else but this new community.’” – Adolf Hitler

      This is what each generation leaves its posterity… generation, after generation, after generation.

      The fact is, we have all been assimilated. We all live in chapters of our time. Each generation is its own chapter assimilated into the community. Here we are… imagine where we will be. For those of us old enough to remember another time… it doesn’t take too much imagination to understand where we are going.

      All my great-grandparents lived into their 90′s. And every one of them reflected on simpler times, despite their hardships. Young folks today know nothing of those simpler times, they know nothing but the new camp. And their children will be raised and bred in the next chapter of the new camp. And so on it will go.

      “Posterity: you will never know how much it has cost my generation to preserve your freedom. I hope you will make good use of it.” – John Q. Adams

      I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again. I think America was G-ds way of showing us that mankind is not fit for liberty. That He allowed and interceded in the creation of this country as a testament to the fact that mankind is not fit for liberty.

      Sure, we may have our “prophets.” But I am reminded: And He said, “Woe to you also, lawyers! For you load men with burdens hard to bear, and you yourselves do not touch the burdens with one of your fingers. Woe to you! For you build the tombs of the prophets, and your fathers killed them. In fact, you bear witness that you approve the deeds of your fathers; for they indeed killed them, and you build their tombs.

      Like every generation before us, we lament our loss of liberty, and build its generational tombs as a testament.

      Yeah. I know. There is always tomorrows. And how many yesterdays were there? And here we are… waiting for tomorrow.

  4. Mexico has their army along the border with Guatemala, and they wail on anyone trying to cross from the south and the don’t give a shit about what any other nation thinks. We need to do the same thing; our military on our southern border with orders to use lethal force on ANYONE crossing illegally.

    And before anyone gets “offended” understand, appeasement is not the answer, we have to fight fire with fire, political correctness and pity for these foreign invaders will be the end of this nations sovereignty.

            We basically have no patriots anymore… many, many moochers wanting government to wipe their asses from cradle to grave instead of standing on their own feet and chiseling out a future through hard work and perseverance. And the leaders (generals) in the military only know how to advance by how far they stick their heads up the asses of their superiors… down right sickening.

            I’m not really sure we can upright the ship because the youth of the country haven’t a clue and will follow like sheep… just give them a Blackberry and a little pornography and they’re as happy as a pig in shit.

            Then we have senators like Ayotte who are more than happy to sell the country down the drain… God help us.

  11. The GOP aren’t stupid. They’re focused on the things that really matter to them: 1) Keeping their own jobs by hopefully (a futile hope actually) appealing to enough of the new majority to stay in office. 2) Insuring that Corp. America has low wages by allowing enough unskilled immigrants to keep wages low for less-skilled jobs while simultaneously allowing more H1B visas for Indian/Pakistani/Chinese IT/call center/technology workers to keep wages low for high-skilled jobs.

    Now, the fact that amnesty will also doom America to a certain death at some time in the near future does not interest them in the least. They plan to get rich enough to either stay in the priviledged classor move to New Zealand when the balloon goes up.

    Do not expect the GOP to “conserve” the country’s future except by accident.

    Correct me if I am wrong, but do we not already have immigration laws that are not being enforced? Obviously any law that is not being enforced will not work.

    • You are quite correct in that current immigration laws are not being enforced. NEITHER party want to enforce them. The Democraps know that every illegal that comes into our country, whether they become legal or not – are going to vote Democrap and that means the Democraps will come to have autocratic power over the country.

      The GOP, the party of the rich, and especially under George Duh Bush turned a blind eye to millions of illegals because they form a pool of slave-level wage workers and lower overall wage rates. This is good for the rich and Corp. America.

      HYPOTHETICALLY SPEAKING, it is POSSIBLE that any people finding themselves in a situation in which they are being replaced by a foreign population in their own homeland by their rulers…the only answer would be peaceful secession or civil war.

      Each and every leftwing television news agency is owned by corporate America – yes, corporations allow anti-business propaganda on their own networks and they pay for it! Why? They turn a profit and if it makes money, it’s good.

      Repubicans are the same. They are betting on getting enough votes for long enough to get rich and/or get their congressional pension for the rest of their lives. Then they expect to live in New Zealand while the rest of us are stuck here in a future Zimbabwe or Yugoslavia.

      The GOP is focused on short-term profits for themselves and the rich they represent. They could care less about the long-term survival of our culture, our civilization or our country.

      “Who was it that said, “We have met the enemy and he is us?” The Tea Party Patriots have good reason to oppose this bill. It impacts all three of its core values: limited constitutional government, the free market, and fiscal responsibility. No piece of legislation could erase our southern border more effectively.
