We have not forgotten the 2007 McCain-Kennedy amnesty bill that was killed in the face of intense outrage from the American people.  Since then, we have seen a communist administration, under Barack Obama (or whatever his name is), assume power in the United States, and among the myriad impeachable crimes and malfeasance of his administration, we have seen an explosion of lawlessness from the feds in regard to the illegal alien invasion of our country.

This administration has engaged in criminal conduct by granting amnesty through presidential edict to certain illegal aliens.  It has refused to police and secure our border.  It has spit on the rule of our immigration laws.  It has refused to deport illegal aliens when they have been caught.  It has released jailed criminal aliens onto the streets, claiming it was necessary because of “sequester” budget “cuts;” however, as all of the ridiculous Democrat “sequester” charades were meant to do, this was just designed to gin up anger at Republicans who support lower federal government spending.

If we were outraged back in 2007 at the McCain-Kennedy amnesty bill, we are now outraged to the hundredth power at the latest attempt by Congress to shove amnesty for illegal aliens down our throats.

Even worse, we have lately been hearing radio ads (with corresponding television spots) featuring Congressman Paul Ryan and Senator Marco Rubio who are touting Senate Bill 744, which is euphemistically titled, “Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act.”

Woodrow Wilcox


I know I’m not the only one who is incensed at hearing these radio ads aired during Rush Limbaugh’s show and possibly other national conservative talk radio shows, although I have only noticed them prominently featured in heavy rotation on Rush’s network.  The organization that created the spots is called, “Americans for a Conservative Direction,” and its board of directors includes Haley Barbour, our former Republican Governor here in Mississippi.  Thanks a lot, Gov. Barbour—not!

From the group’s home page is this statement:



Our country has a broken immigration system and a broken border, both of which present huge obstacles to the businesses, job creators, and legal immigrants who have played by the rules and will help continue to grow our economy. It’s well past time for Congress to get to work on real solutions to secure our border, hold those who have broken our laws accountable, and improve our legal immigration system to meet our country’s needs and boost America’s competitiveness in a global economy.

These are lies.  Our country does not have a “broken immigration system.”  It has a lawless administration that refuses to enforce existing immigration and visa laws and a strong border.  This is not brain surgery.  There is no need for another mammoth 844-page, outrageously expensive piece of legislation ostensibly designed to “fix” what isn’t broken.  We already have “real solutions” to secure the border.  The problem is that our criminal administration in Washington won’t employ them.

The claims in a television version of the “conservative” amnesty ads featuring Rubio were roundly debunked by the Center for Immigration Studies.

Rep. Steve King (R-IA) told CNS News that this monster bill destroys the rule of law.  At least we have a few Republican voices out there that are not in lockstep with “Republicans” like Ryan and Rubio who are trying to peddle snake oil amnesty to the American people by pounding us with these fake “conservative” ads that insult our intelligence by declaring this disastrous amnesty bill to be a very good thing for our country, when it is no such thing.

From the CNS News column:

King and other House Republicans said on Monday that they offered “another viewpoint” from Republicans who believe amnesty is necessary for the GOP following the 2012 election.   He said the bill is “being stampeded” without enough scrutiny.

“The people on the other side of the aisle, they want amnesty for a number of reasons, the biggest one it’s a big political boost for them,” King said.  “I don’t understand why Republicans think it’s a good idea, but somehow they’ve bought into this idea.”

He also said the bill is a “terrible idea” from an economic perspective.  “At no stage in their lives does the universe of those who would receive amnesty make a net financial contribution to this country,” King said.  “At no stage.  Not a single year.”

A member of the House Subcommittee on Immigration and Border Security, King cited the Heritage Foundation’s recent report by Robert Rector and Jason Richwine that found granting amnesty to illegal immigrants would add $6.3 trillion to the federal deficit and $9.4 trillion in government benefits to the newly minted citizens.

Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) has also warned that the bill gives Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Janet Napolitano “virtually unlimited discretion to waiver” prohibitions on obtaining legal status, such as criminal activity or previous deportation.

“The big question I would pose out there is, why?” King said.  “Why is that 844-page bill, why is it good for America and Americans?”

“I can’t get that answer on why it’s good for us,” he said.

We are simply in a re-run picture of “Amnestyville Horror,” only this time many more Republicans are stupidly going along with it, very much against the will of the American people.

And to further rub our faces in this un-American, third world invasion nonsense, the so-called “conservative” Haley Barbour amnesty group is flooding Rush Limbaugh’s show with these moronic Ryan-Rubio ads.  Rush is certainly free to take advertising money from whoever he wishes, but I wish he would reject these stinking spots.  We’ve been sick of hearing them since we heard the very first one.

Message to Ryan and Rubio from the majority of the American people:  Take your fake “conservative” support for amnesty, stick it in your pipe, and smoke it, because we weren’t buying it back in 2007, and we’re certainly not buying it now.

    Excellent article, Gina.

    But it appears that Rush Limbaugh is absolutely smitten by Marco Rubio.
    Sings his praises all the time. Tells us how Rubio will be president one day.

    • WXRGina

      You’re right, Ms. Publius. So many on our side are taken with Rubio. I just see a young RINO-in-the-making.

    • WXRGina

      PS: Thank you, Ms. Publius!

  • shark60

    I too was smitten with Rubio until this fiasco. Apparently he is too stupid to see that Graham, Schumer, and chief rino McCain are using him to push their agenda. Rubio has lost my support and has slim chance of getting it back.

    • SDJammer

      Shark, let me begin by saying that I am OPPOSED to this immigration bill. I was open minded on the issue until the Grassley trigger amendment got voted down. That was a pretty clear signal that there were not any good intentions behind the legislation.

      However, I am still perplexed over this whole thing. First, Rubio is not stupid. Second, he has been so conservative on everything else. Third, it is not just him. What about Jeff Flake? Fourth, there are numerous strong social conservatives such as Dr. Richard Land solidly and I mean solidly behind it.

      I am just struggling to connect all the dots on this one.

      As for Rubio, as disappointed as I am with him on this one particular issue I am not ready to completely cast him aside. Perhaps that is what eventually needs to be done. If we had an over abundance of strong conservatives it would not be that big of a deal.

      However, the last time that I looked we were running short on these people. I am willing to wait and see where he falls on other issues going forward before making that decision. If we get rid of every conservative based on a single mistake, we are not going to have many left. Even Ronald Reagan would not have passed that zero tolerance test.

      • I’m pretty much were you are on Rubio. Other than this insanity with illegal immigration, I think he’s still pretty solid on conservative issues. So I’m not going to write him off yet. But I think Kristol and some others are right in saying to Rubio, essentially, “You’d better rethink your support of this stinker REAL QUICK, or you’re going to flush your credibility down the toilet.”

        Sadly, once politicians start compromising on a major scale like this, they get “seduced by the dark side” pretty quickly on other things, more often than not. John McCain is a good example: used to be a great conservative, now he’s sold out on many of the important issues.

        I sincerely hope Rubio realizes very soon what the rest of us have seen all along: the Dems in the Senate are NEVER going to allow a real fix for our broken borders and immigration system, and he’s ruining his good name by attempting to work with a bunch of snakes.

    I second Publius Huldah’s “Excellent article, Gina”! Authentic conservatives need to keep exposing political phonies posing as conservative. Most people don’t really know what true conservatism is any more. The Republicans have distorted public opinion by calling themselves conservative while increasing the size of government. In the last Presidential debates, they represened new government “programs” as solutions to various problems. This is strictly socialist thinking which produces more bureaucracy, more taxation, more regulation and more encroachments into our liberty. The term “RINO” doesn’t really mean anything anymore because Republican power brokers have long since abandoned true conservative principles. The bulk of Republicans differ only slightly from Democrats. It is foolish for true conservatives to look to the ranks of Republicans for their heroes. Isn’t this latest round of ads, aimed at conservatives for the purpose of brainwashing us into accepting Big Brother’s anti-constitutional agenda, proof enough of the Republican’s real intent? They want to control us, not represent us.

    • WXRGina

      You’re so right, Mike!

      Here in America we’re in more trouble than we can imagine, which means the rest of the world is in worse than a pretty pickle.

      Thank you!

  • I’ve heard these ads several times already this morning during the Rush Limbaugh show. When they say, “What we have now is de facto amnesty,” I want to add to it: “What we’re going to do is provide full-blown amnesty! We’re bringing illegals out of the shadows and RINOs out of the closet!”

    • WXRGina

      Just today I heard one during Hannity’s radio show. Gads.

    • JohnDotKom

      Been hearing them, here & there for the last few wks. Each time I hear “Sponsored by conservative……………,” I want to puke. So few sane members in the GOP left. Treachery & treason, all around us.

      • WXRGina

        Yes, I’ve been hearing them for several weeks, too, but I finally noticed one during Hannity, instead of Rush. I haven’t noticed them during Beck’s show.

  • JohnDotKom

    Right on, & I concur, great article. So many attacks, from all sides. If they legalize this current group of 3rd world outlaws, it’ll be like a coup de gras, almost no way to overcome such dilution of our sovereignty. I’ve been writing on Rubio’s & Nuggybauer’s Facebook pages (as have LOTS of others) “We don’t need immigration reform, we need immigration LAW ENFORCEMENT”, along with some other unflattering commentary. Gina’s right, and I included to little Marco, “You’ve taken up where Ted Kennedy left off”. This is not only insulting, it’s infuriating. More demonstration that *We the people* have no damn representation ANYWHERE within this Gov’t, with the possible exception of the not yet corrupted (or Breitbarted) Ted Cruz. Rubio IS a shocking disgrace!

    • WXRGina

      Combine the third world invasion with the George Soros Barcelona electronic vote counting expansion and vote machine hacking, and a true conservative will likely never win a major election again. Our elections are utterly compromised (I’ll never believe “Obama” truly won last year, never), and I don’t know if we will be able to get them back. Did you see Aaron Klein’s latest report? If not, read it and seethe: http://www.wnd.com/2013/05/look-whos-rubber-stamping-foreign-vote-counting/

      • JohnDotKom

        Read it & seethed & wept. Not that they are doing it, but that they are doing it w/o a whimper from anybody in charge, or of influence. Combine Sytl’s electioneering with the Acorn orgs with all their vote stealing, and I’m with you, I’ll never not believe the 13 election was totally stolen. The GOP is well aware of the vote stealing, but not only are they not ‘doing anything’ about, they aren’t even talking about it!!!!!!!!

        • WXRGina

          I guess the GOP must approve of what’s happening, because I don’t believe for a minute they’re “unaware.”

          • I’m sure the GOP establishment is very aware–and approving. Their current strategy seems to be “Get out in front and claim a victory for liberal values before the Democrats can.”

            • JohnDotKom

              For yrs, after what H Ross Perot’s 3rd party candidacy did, (got Slick Willie elected) I thought I could/should never support a 3rd party candidate. I’m not endorsing anybody for the 16 election yet, but it gets harder everyday to support, in any way, the GOP. Is it something in the D/C municipal water system, or what?
