    After passing immigration amnesty, Republicans should go on an overseas apology tour

    After passing immigration amnesty, Republicans should go on an overseas apology tour

    If Lindsey Graham, Marco Rubio and others in the Republican Party want to reward adults who broke the immigration laws with citizenship, they should have the guts to announce it as such.

    And then go on an overseas apology tour to apologize to the millions if not tens of millions of people waiting patiently in Africa, Asia and South America who respected our immigration laws.

    Have the guts to tell the law-abiders they were fools, that they should have just come here on a tourist visa and never left, or jumped the ship or border fence, because they would have been better off. They would have been able to establish lives and families here, and then not only had the threat of deportation removed but also been able to live here legally while waiting for citizenship.

    But don’t tell me we have to do amnesty to help with electoral demographics. That’s a highly doubtful proposition to begin with, and is just fear masquerading as strategy and policy.

    Bad policy almost always results in bad outcomes, and citizenship for adults who broke our immigration laws is bad policy, it rewards law-breakers and makes a mockery of law-abiders.

    Yet that bad policy now is the super-duper Republican strategy:

    The top Republican crafting the Senate’s sweeping immigration-reform legislation acknowledged Sunday the bill still has flaws, while a fellow GOP senator said their party blocking its passage will only add to their “demographic death spiral.” …

    South Carolina Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham, who also helped write the bipartisan immigration bill, told NBC’s “Meet the Press” that conservatives trying to block the measure will doom the party and all but guarantee a Democrat will remain in the White House after the 2016 elections.

    “After eight years of President Obama’s economic policies, and quite frankly foreign policy, people are going to be looking around,” he said. “But if we don’t pass immigration reform, if we don’t get it off the table in a reasonable, practical way, it doesn’t matter who you run in 2016. We’re in a demographic death spiral as a party and the only way we can get back in good graces with the Hispanic community in my view is pass comprehensive immigration reform. If you don’t do that, it really doesn’t matter who we run.”

    Oh, looky, Democrats agree:

    A Democrat also involved in crafting the bill, New Jersey Sen. Robert Menendez, went a step further by predicting on CNN’s “State of the Union” that “there’ll never be a road to the White House for the Republican Party” if immigration overhaul fails to pass.

    What better proof do you need?

    Maybe we should listen to this student, Cal State Student: If Rubio’s Immigration Bill is so Great, Why Does Obama Support It?

    18-1 above is right in the description of the death of representative government in this country. The Constitution is gone. That is an inescapable fact. The rule of law is gone. The party controlling the Executive Branch does exactly what it wants to do. We have not had a constitutional budget for 5 years, so the power of the purse is gone. The Executive routinely ignores Congressional subpoenas and queries, and when they do deign to appear before Congress, they perjure themselves even more routinely.

    The Courts make no impression on the Executive, as they ignore rulings they do not like. q.v. The National Labor Relations Board is operating totally illegally according to court rulings, because it does not have a legal quorum. The key there being “is operating” because it is still issuing and enforcing decrees as if it were legal.

    We have an “opposition” party which is merely another faction competing for its turn to oppress the rest of us, and which has no disagreement with any of the oppression, but just wants to be in charge of it. The Republican party has just as much contempt for the people of the United States as the Democrats.

    Our electoral system is hopelessly corrupted, with vote fraud far passing the level where elections cannot be trusted, with more registered voters than people being far from unusual in Democrat controlled areas, and Democrat controlled districts turning out far more than 100% of that falsely inflated number for the Democrat candidate and none for the opponent. Poll watchers are forcibly removed from polling places and non-Democrats are threatened in the streets by Democrat thugs with no recourse and no penalty for the assailants. There is no legal reason or means for boxes of cast ballots to be in the personal possession of Democrat party officials; and yet in close elections they regularly turn up in their closets, basements, or car trunks weeks after the election and are counted.

    The latest revelations about the massive use of the coercive organs of the State domestically against any who oppose any Democrats, and the spying on all means of communications and the internet by the government seems to explain why even those Republicans who could be expected to put up pro-forma resistance are collaborating with the Left. How many politicians do you know who are not vulnerable to either threats or blackmail, or both?

    The Republican Speaker of the House and his minions vote with Nancy Pelosi far more often than they do the Republican caucus on key issues. Chief Justice John Roberts reversed himself 180 degrees days before the Supreme Court ruled the blatantly unconstitutional Obamacare statute to somehow be simultaneously unconstitional and yet still constitutional because it was a tax.

    The Left now even owns the token opposition. We are living in a one party state unbound by any limitations.

    This morning the Supreme Court ruled 7-2 that proof of citizenship is forbidden in voter registration. The Left now has no restrictions at all on creating false votes.

    I submit to the Professor, his associates, and to my fellow readers: In the limited time remaining [if such still exists] before a dictatorship cannot be resisted; given the above please list a political means short of either the Clausewitzian equation or fantasy whereby the Constitution and the rule of law can be restored.

        Only if a majority of the House [remember, Boehner and his people vote with the Democrats] votes a bill of impeachment, and the Democrat controlled Senate convicts. Neither of which will happen in this space-time continuum.
