Dead Republicans Walking

Cross-posted from stikNstein has no mercy…

A few weeks ago Stik did a post titled FROM PERMANENT MAJORITY, TO THE END OF THE REPUBLICAN PARTY AS WE KNOW IT….IN 5 YEARS. It’s HERE

The title came from a commenter at Ace of Spades. The abandonment of the core values of his party by the President, and his Cabinet Appointees…..his Senate and Congressional Leadership….the Department of Commerce and his big business buddies….have been a gradual yet inexorable process over the last five …to 10 years. More at ACE HERE

Now…..with a master stroke of intimidation and bribery The Business lobby, The church lobby, and the Illegal Immigrant Special Interest Lobby are blackmailing and paying off Republican Senators to resurrect and vote into law a bill that by every measure is against the National interest and opposed by the majority of Americans.

Republicans falling in to support the Bill might just as well be placing the order for their last meal while they’re at it……

The bribe of advanced funding that so many Republicans are using to justify their pro Amnesty votes is horrific and misleading. It’s also being funded by the cost of the z-visas, which means that money from the visas that could of gone to help offset the costs of health care, education, or crime from the illegal tsunami we’ve been swamped by.
Republicans have already agreed to vote to pass the bill (cloture) so long as they are allowed to stand up and posture by proposing amendments they know are meaningless or if voted on will fail.
22 ammendments will be proposed, 11 dem, 11 rep. Anyone who introduces an amendment has pledged to vote for cloture. Dorgan’s amendment is in. Hutchison is on board. pay to play, legislative style.

The President and the RNC along with a small cadre of Pro Amnesty big business bought and paid for Senators, have sailed over the cliff…….there is no turning back for them……

THEY ARE DEAD REPUBLICANS WALKING….

The question is how many other Republicans will follow them into the abyss.

Go to any Conservative Blog and read the comments to any post about the immigration Bill….. Open any newspaper and read letters to the editor…Go to any online mainstream media news site that allows reader interaction…national….local…it doesn’t matter…..look at the results of every poll that asks questions not rigged to get a desired result….ask any American that doesn’t have a vested interest in using illegal immigrants to make higher profits…..

And if you think Blogs don’t represent what American Republicans are thinking?….Look Again…..
Instapundit:around 5 million hits a month
Ace of Spades:Around 600,000 hits a month
Michelle Malkin:over 3 million hits a month
Hot Air:over 2 million hits a month
Plus thousands of smaller conservative blogs with loyal Republican readers……..

Americans….and Republicans see what’s going on….They know what Bush is trying to do. They know why this bill was crafted behind closed doors. An idiot can see it. The only way this bill could possibly succeed was to ram it through …when that didn’t work they tried to intimidate Republicans by impugning their motives calling them Racist Bigots who didn’t want what’s best for the country….when that didn’t work they are now trying to bribe and threaten the Senators who have opposed the bill…..
It is so grossly transparent, that in the eyes of The Republican base, they have gone too far….. and worse, they have gone there for the wrong reasons.

THE DYING REPUBLICANS

Below is the list of 15 GOP senators that the amnesty pushers want to flip to their side (asterisked senators are up for re-election in 2008)…..With apologies to The Princess Bride……They are only “MOSTLY DEAD” but, are even more vulnerable than the Republican Leadership. Whether they choose to support or oppose what the people who elected them consider a massive failure, will be revealed in the next few weeks.
WHEN THEY NEXT FACE AN OPPONENT WHO RUNS AN AD WITH PICTURES LIKE THE ONES BELOW, THEY MAY REGRET CHOOSING TO ABANDON THEIR BASE.

WE HOPE THEY CHOOSE WISELY….

COMMENTS FROM SOME OF THE CITIZENS WHO SUPPORTED AND ELECTED THEM:

Bye bye, GOP.
I, for one, welcome our new Democrat overlords

They’re going to push the amnesty bill again, and this time they’ll vote for it. The keys? A scheme to spend a paltry $4.4 billion on border security — borrowed from the Treasury department, for some reason, rather than appropriated — supposed “first,” that is, immediately, and yet they’re plotting to pass amnesty before a nickel of this money is actually spent on improving border security. No fence, no computer system finally up and running to track immigrants, no biometric ID cards, no employment-eligibility system operational, no end to sanctuary cities — nothing. Just more promises.

FLASH TO NOVEMBER 2008

SCREEN OPENS TO A MOTHER AND FATHER SITTING ON A COUCH…..FRAMED PICTURE OF THEIR DAUGHTER IN HER CHEERLEADING OUTFIT IN FRONT OF THEM ON THE COFFEE TABLE:
” In 2007 our daughter was killed in a car wreck by a Z visa immigrant who had a criminal record and 2 previous drunk driving convictions. Republican Senator_____________ voted to allow people who couldn’t even read a stop sign to get Amnesty and come into our country. I’m not against legal immigration, but why would they let someone who had already broken our laws stay here?
ZOOM IN TO FRAMED PICTURE……
FADE TO BLACK…..
My name is ____________ and I will vote to repeal the Z visa portion of the Amnesty Bill that my opponent passed. This is just another example of how Senator __________ has lost touch with his constituents. Americans didn’t support this legislation then…..and they don’t support it now!
VOTE FOR _________ A conservative who doesn’t believe Amnesty for lawbreakers was worth the price Americans are having to pay.
FADE TO BLACK………
Yeah……..face that next November………….

A VOTE FOR CLOTURE IS A PRO AMNESTY VOTE REGARDLESS OF HOW THEY VOTED ON THE FAKE AMENDMENTS……PERIOD

NEED A LITTLE MORE CONVINCING?
COMMENTS FROM SOME OF THE CITIZENS WHO SUPPORTED AND ELECTED THEM:

“And yet they still get their amnesty before any enforcement measures take place, only this time they borrow money to allocate to the “triggers” that have already been mandated but largely ignored.
Of the $4.4 billion, I expect $1 billion in pork, $3 billion to facilitate amnesty, $399,999,980 for some toys and buildings, and $20 for the fence.
Again, it’s political blackmail- the message is that they won’t fund the mandated immigration enforcement measures unless they first get their amnesty.”

“Bye bye, GOP.
I, for one, welcome our new Democrat overlords..”

“They’re going to push the amnesty bill again, and this time they’ll vote for it. The keys? A scheme to spend a paltry $4.4 billion on border security — borrowed from the Treasury department, for some reason, rather than appropriated — supposed “first,” that is, immediately, and yet they’re plotting to pass amnesty before a nickel of this money is actually spent on improving border security. No fence, no computer system finally up and running to track immigrants, no biometric ID cards, no employment-eligibility system operational, no end to sanctuary cities — nothing. Just more promises.”

“How many times does it need to be said? Your promises count for nothing when you are merely promising to do what you already could be doing, but flatly refuse to do. The attitude continues to be John McCain’s “I’ll build the goddamned fence” only if forced to do so.”

“And the moment their precious amnesty passes — when we no longer have any leverage or bargaining power — they won’t be so forced to do that which is clearly anathema to them. 1986 all over again — except this time it’s worse, because it won’t be forgiven or forgotten.”

“Pot-banging tantrum-throwing Senator Lindsey Graham now says this bill isn’t about immigration at all, but about our very ability as a nation to pass piece of shit bills. I’m not sure I’m really sold on the importance of our ability to pass piece of shit bills, but for Lindsay Graham and the media, it’s a critical test of the American experiment in democracy.”

“There are guys in there like Coburn that could serve in perpetuity for all I care. What we really need to do is get everyone to stop donating to the RNC and to the House and Senate campaign committees. Send all of our donations directly to candidates who support the ideals that we support.”

“It is no longer possible to believe this group thinks it’s doing what is best for Conservative Americans. The only thing holding the remanants of the conservative base together is it’s belief that no matter how much damage the Bush years wreak on Conservatives, they are a sturdy bunch.”

“Let me ask a few rhetoricals: Do Democrats hate Bush? Have they supported anything he proposes? Would they relish punishing Bush (remember, this is the same group that invented Plamegate and “Bush lied us into war”)? Do they now have the majority they need to make a big, bold statement? Is not enforcing the nation’s laws an impeachable offense? Seems to me the Democrats have everything they need to try impeachment proceedings, yet they don’t. Why?
Because they have the biggest amnesty cheerleader on the planet in their corner and want to milk him for all he’s worth, knowing that it will change the fabric of this nation for a generation, perhaps generations. And the GOP is complying.
The GOP is dying before our eyes. We’ve been watching it get sick since shortly after the Contract with America was made, but it’s in its last throes now. Bush I weakened it, Bush II killed it, and the GOP Congresscritters are celebrating with a chalice of arsenic. Now that’s a legacy fit for a Kennedy. Bottoms up!”

Seems to me the Democrats have everything they need to try impeachment proceedings, yet they don’t. Why?
When your political enemies are committing suicide you do not interfere.

Betrayal IS an art form. I’m re-registering as an independent. If the majority of repub registered voters did that, the message would be loud and clear to the morons in congress. God I hate them. F_____g useless self-serving bastards all.

This is just like that feeling you get just before you know you’re going to hurl….the queasy stomach…the bile starting come up, the breaking out in a cold sweat…the heaving stomach….you desperately don’t want to be sick, but you know its going to happen anyway….amnesty! (Only with amnesty, you WON”T be feeling better afterwards.)

I figured when everyone was shooting their six-guns in the air last Thursday, celebrating the death of this piece of shit bill, that there was going to be some serious heart-ache this week. This amnesty is more “precious….my precious”….to Bush and the amnesty Senators than you or I can possibly imagine. There was simply no way that Big bid’ness was not going to see this amnesty get rammed through. As of today, Lindsey Grahmnesty put everyone on notice that its “not about immigration anymore.” It never was. It’s just beyond sad to see so many honest, straightforward, heartfelt Americans expressing themselves to their elected representatives, only to see it all fall on deaf ears – and not only that, but to be laughed at to their faces while the politicians pocket the REAL money from the only people whose opinions matter on this issue, and vote the other way.

I have had the feeling over the last few years that everything was working backwards and things just didnt feel right.
Up is down and all that. But this? This is blatant. After the uproar last week about amnesty, these people just told us all to f__k off.
They act like they didn’t get their office emails and fax lines flooded by those of us against this bill.
They literally do NOT give two shits what we say.
Where exactly do we go from here? This is totally like being smashed in the face with a 2×4. Only the 2×4 is the realization that they REALLY REALLY don’t represent us.

More bloggers telling it like it is about illegals in the United States:
Americans Prefer Securing the Border First from Virtuous Republc. Excerpt: Ramussen, on June 13 found that only 20% of Americans wanted “comprehensive immigration” reform. Instead, Americans prefer “smaller” steps in the immigration reform process. Sixty-nine percent (69%) of voters would favor an approach that focuses exclusively on “exclusively on securing the border and reducing illegal immigration.” Support for the enforcement only approach comes from 84% of Republicans, 55% of Democrats, and 69% of those not affiliated with either major party.

Course of Human Events from Toms Flashbacks. Excerpt: Day after day I see America coming closer to its end. Too many enemies disguised as friends, to many enemies unseen behind the thick dark curtain of political correctness. We have a pretty good sized religious movement to take over the world in the name of Allah, yet little reaction overall from the general population.

Trent Lott Enters Dangerous Territory from Debbie at Right Truth. Excerpt: Trent Lott opened his mouth and stepped on very dangerous territory with these statements:
The Republican whip, Trent Lott of Mississippi, who supports the bill, said: “Talk radio is running America. We have to deal with that problem.” At some point, Mr. Lott said, Senate Republican leaders may try to rein in “younger guys who are huffing and puffing against the bill.” (NYT)
