Unforgivable Sin: Immigration Bill passes big test

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

Correction: This story incorrectly listed at the bottom of the article a number of Senators as having voted “yes” for the bill who in fact voted “no”. We are deeply sorry for for this mistake and have updated the bottom with the accurate list.The full roll call can be read here.

The immigration bill passed a huge test in the Senate and it appears as if it will cruise to surviving the final Senate vote. Thanks to 15 votes from defecting republicans, the bill received 67 votes, 7 more than needed to ultimately pass. Glenn expressed his frustration, particularly with ‘colossal disappointment’ Jeff Flake and ‘made out of liverwurst jello’ Lindsey Graham.

Glenn has been critical of Lindsey Graham for some time, and he said it should be no surprise to anyone that he would be advancing this progressive bill. Comparing Lindsey Graham to a meal at dinner, he said that no one sits down and expects the “Lindsey Graham” to be any good. Jeff Flake and Marco Rubio, on the other hand, were elected with higher expectations.

“Look at the two names that have gone on this list that are so disappointing: Marco Rubio and Jeff Flake,” Glenn said.

“Jeff Flake and Marco Rubio: you sellout pieces of garbage. You both got in there because you were voted in by constitutionalists,” he said. “You were supposed to represent the people who voted you into office.”

“We brought you to the dance and you have just shirked us. Fine. We know who you are, and we will not forget you.”

Glenn said that he would adamantly support anyone who decided to run against Marco Rubio and Jeff Flake.

Because immigration reform would fundamentally transform the country, Glenn said that he could not see himself changing his opinion on Flake and Rubio.

“Seeing that this one issue is going to fundamentally transform our nation and be the end of our nation, yeah. Yeah, I’m pretty much done.”

According to Glenn, when Jeff Flake was running for office he ended up blowing off a FreedomWorks event even though the organization had lent him a lot of support. Glenn had been vocally supportive of Flake because he had the support of FreedomWorks, but the incident left a bad taste in his mouth.

“Should have known,” he said before adding, “you think I’ll forget? Oh, I won’t. I never forget.”

Below is the list of all the “aye” votes who voted to advance the Immigration Reform bill:

Lamar Alexander
Kelly Ayotte
Jeffrey Chiesa
Susan Collins
Bob Corker
Jeff Flake
Lindsey Graham
Orrin Hatch
Dean Heller
John Hoeven
Mark Kirk
John McCain
Lisa Murkowski
Marco Rubio
Roger Wicker

    Well, here’s yet another issue for which “it’s over” for our country according to Beck.  I can’t count how many times it’s been “over”.  Remember it was “over” when the Saudi national that was suspected of being connected to the Boston bombing was released.  But I guess talking about the Saudi National is “over” for Beck since the inside information he had about the Saudis being behind the bombing was false.  The good news is that despite how many times Beck says “it’s over”, it’s never over.

    I read this article today by Thomas Sowell and liked what he wrote:

    Random Thoughts
    By Thomas Sowell
    Tuesday, June 25, 2013

    Random thoughts on the passing scene:

    Edmund Burke said, “There is no safety for honest men, but by believing all possible evil of evil men.” Evil men do not always snarl. Some smile charmingly. Those are the most dangerous. If you don’t think the mainstream media slants the news, keep track of how often they tell you that the Arctic ice pack is shrinking and how seldom they tell you that the Antarctic ice pack is expanding. The latter news would not fit the “global warming” scenario that so many in the media are promoting.

    Someone has referred to Vice President Biden as President Obama’s “impeachment insurance.” Even critics who are totally opposed to Barack Obama’s policies do not want anything to cut short his presidency, with Joe Biden as his successor.

    People who refuse to accept unpleasant truths have no right to complain about politicians who lie to them. What other kind of candidates would such people elect?

    Given the shortage of articulate Republican leaders, it will be a real loss — to the country, not just to the Republicans — if Senator MARCO RUBIO discredits himself, early in his career, by supporting “comprehensive” immigration reform that amounts to just another amnesty, with false promises to secure the border.

    Coincidence or Recent History Repeating Itself?

    In 2007, Florida Senator Mel Martinez, a Cuban American, was a member of the Gang of Eight on Immigration (along with McCain and Lindsey) when they came up with the amnesty
    compromise.  A petition was issued to recall Martinez because he flip flopped on his 2004 campaign promise to oppose any form of amnesty for illegal immigrants.  He stated, “I strongly oppose amnesty for illegal aliens; our immigration laws should not reward lawlessness.”  It was the main reason many Republicans fought so hard to get him elected.

    Fast forward to 2013 and Rubio the Rube is walking down the same path with the same players with the same agenda – amnesty.   He, too, has betrayed his constituents.   Time for a recall.

    We need to stop referring to “Comprehensive Immigration Reform” legislation as “amnesty” and start calling what it really is: GENOCIDE.  The DC traitors are voting to replace Americans with fast-breeding foreign invaders (and the invaders’ many relatives who haven’t yet invaded America).  See how far the DC traitors have taken us down the road to genocide through their other actions (or in actions, as the case may be), leaving just this one last act before the genocide against the American people becomes irreversible.

    “Raphael Lemkin’s broader concerns over genocide, as set out in his “Axis Rule in Occupied Europe”, also embraced what may be considered as non-physical, namely, psychological acts of genocide which he personally defined as:

    “Generally speaking, genocide does not necessarily mean the immediate destruction of a nation, except when accomplished by mass killings of all members of a nation. It is intended rather to signify a coordinated plan of different actions aiming at the destruction of essential foundations of the life of national groups, with the aim of annihilating the groups themselves. The objectives of such a plan would be disintegration of the political and social institutions, of culture, language, national feelings, religion, and the economic existence of national groups, and the destruction of the personal security, liberty, health, dignity, and even the lives of the individuals belonging to such groups. Genocide is directed against the national group as an entity, and the actions involved are directed against individuals, not in their individual capacity, but as members of the national group.”

    “Genocide has two phases: one, destruction of the national pattern of the oppressed group; the other, the imposition of the national pattern of the oppressor. This imposition, in turn, may be made upon the oppressed population which is allowed to remain or upon the territory alone, after removal of the population and the colonization by the oppressor’s own nationals.”

    Mark Levin just passed on an interesting fact that ties in with immigration reform. Here it is:
    As most of you already know, all companies that employ over 50 people will be fined $5000 per employee if they don’t offer full time workers health insurance. What you didn’t know is, all newly documented workers ( former illegals) won’t qualify for Obamacare, so employers won’t be fined for hiring them and not offering insurance. In other words, businesses will be given incentives for hiring Mexican workers over American workers. To the tune of $5000 apiece. Tell your congressmen to vote NO on amnesty!

    Every single Republican on this list will have a great deal of difficulty getting re-elected.  Hatch, McConnell, Portman, Rubio and Jeff the Flake.  When you join Feinstein, Schumer, Stabenow, Levin, Al Frankenstein and the others, you are definitely scraping the bottom of the barrel.

    Very surprised at Rubio, this will be as far as he goes, just another talking head.  Same with the other Republicans on the list.  I’m very surprised that McCain isn’t on this list.

    Do you think some of these guys knew about the NSA activities and are getting strong armed?  Wouldn’t surprise me a bit.  Seems like most of these folks are the ones calling Snowden a traitor.  These guys are the traitors for putting our country’s national security at risk by not securing the border and getting rid of the 11 million ILLEGAL ALIENS.

    The 11 million illegals should never, under any circumstances, be allowed to vote in this country.  Just like felons aren’t supposed to be voting, but did to elect Al Frankenstein in Minnesota, Illegal Aliens should never be given the right to vote.  No matter how nice they seem, or how long they’ve been here, they didn’t respect our laws and should never be able to vote.   This single amendment to the bill would immediately show what the Democrat’s intentions are.

    As for Republicans in the Senate joining the Democrats, it’s a shame they’re so stupid as to sell their vote on a bill that will surely not get past the Republican controlled House.  Amazing how myopic politicians can be isn’t it?

    All of these Republican losers were bought off with earmarks or some other nonsense, selling out America and the American People on the cheap. Toomey, Thune, Rubio, Portman, Paul (I’m sure daddy’s real proud), Queen McConnell of course he just gave up any chance at King of the Senate because now the Republicans have no shot at the Senate when even more R’s stay home on election day, Johnson (Wisconsin), Johanns, Isakson, Hoeven, Heller (yeller as in yellow), Hatch, Grahamnesty, Flake, Fischer, Cornyn, Corker, Collins, Coats, Chiesa (New Jersey, tubbies friend), Chambliss, Burr, Blunt, Ayotte, Alexander these are all the castrated, butt kissing RINOs for whom an earmark is more important than the nation. When Benedict Arnold betrayed America he had been a hero for the country at the Battle of Saratoga, these people who voted for this bill don’t have that redeeming quality they just are in it for what they can get. I pray they never win another election and that the stench of this vote follows their family name throughout history.

It will make your heart bloom in happiness and moral superiority above the rest of the mortals… congratulations. It will make you feel good and that’s it. There is no logical reason to pass that bill, just emotional reasons. Look out what happened in spain with massive legalization of immigrants, or in venezuela. It will change the political direction of your country, will drain all money from social services, make an effect call for more and more millions to come, and in 8-12 years bring USA to its knees, tax rates huge increases and make unemployment skyrocket for years. You think Welcome a few millions of immigrants will help them? yes it will help them a few years, and it will empoverish all USA later for years to levels you dont even imagine.

    You can recall state and locals, but the feds judge themselves.  We have the recall in California, as well, and we would just love to recall Boxer and Feinstein, but the US Constitution trumps state constitutions, so we can’t.  Sorry, but you will have to vote out Senators McCain and Flake, a recall won’t be allowed by the federal courts.  See:

    Article 1, Section 5 – Each House shall be the judge of the elections, returns and qualifications of its own members…
    Short Version — This is a summary of the important issues covered in this section of the US Constitution. A majority of the members of each house is necessary for a vote to be taken.
    Each house makes its own rules.
    Each house can punish its members and expel a member by a two-thirds vote.
    Each house shall keep a journal of its proceedings and of votes taken.
    When Congress is in session, neither house can adjourn for more than three days or meet in another place.
    Long Version — This is the text of the Actual US Constitution Each House shall be the judge of the elections, returns and qualifications of its own members, and a majority of each shall constitute a quorum to do business; but a smaller number may adjourn from day to day, and may be authorized to compel the attendance of absent members, in such manner, and under such penalties as each House may provide. Each House may determine the rules of its proceedings, punish its members for disorderly behavior, and, with the concurrence of two thirds, expel a member. Each House shall keep a journal of its proceedings, and from time to time publish the same, excepting such parts as may in their judgment require secrecy; and the yeas and nays of the members of either House on any question shall, at the desire of one fifth of those present, be entered on the journal. Neither House, during the session of Congress, shall, without the consent of the other, adjourn for more than three days, nor to any other place than that in which the two Houses shall be sitting.

    Evidently, you no nothing about the no nothings.  The party was only open to male membership.  They also opposed immigration.  I do not oppose immigration.  I oppose invasion (two articles of the Constitution are also opposed to invasion).  And, I oppose genocidal levels of mass immigration — not traditional levels of immigration.  I also prefer educated Asians over illiterate (in two languages) Central Americans, though.  But, that is a matter of wanting taxpaying immigrants, not tax-taking immigrants coming to my country.  Not exactly a good fit with the No Nothing Party any way you try to cut it.

    Today is the last day that you can try to persuade these Senators to protect their political reputations and prove themselves more interested in what the wage-earning, tax-paying people of your state need rather than caving in to the big money promises of the corporate lobbyists.
    You can use any argument you wish with the Senators’ staffers — or simply say “Vote NO on S. 744.”
    But here are some key reasons the Senators should oppose this bill:
    1. VOTING “YES” WILL FOREVER TAR THE SENATOR WITH THE LARGEST OPEN-BORDER/AMNESTY FIASCO IN HISTORY: It repeats the mistake of the 1986 amnesty by giving work permits and legalization to at least 11 million . . . before any new enforcement, let alone before full implementation of enforcement.
    2. VOTING “YES” WILL BE A LONG-TIME SYMBOL OF CALLOUSNESS TO AMERICA’S MOST VULNERABLE, ESPECIALLY TO BLACK AND HISPANIC AMERICANS: The bill’s addition of 33 million new potential foreign workers in first decade during a time of high unemployment threatens to collapse the wages of many middle-class occupations and to retard the ability of the working poor to move up to the middle class.
    3. Polls show almost NO public support (a) for work permits before full enforcement implmentation, (b) for increasing the flow of foreign workers, let alone the tripling of foreign workers, (c) Republicans who vote YES will face a Republican electorate, the plurality of whom will look for another candidate to support in the next Primary.
    4. The Weekly Standard reports that at least five S. 744 supporters do not. The influential publication found that Senators did not know anything about a provision in the bill that would give employers a $3,000 incentive to hire amnestied aliens over citizens and permanent legal residents:
    5. John Carney of CNBC writes that the Congressional Budget Office says S. 744 would create “another decade of pain” for American workers. But that doesn’t seem to trouble very many Members of the United States Senate.
