Update: Wackadoodle? Is it lights out for Jeb and Karl? Still more Cantor fallout: Will the GOP’s 2016 contenders shift right on immigration? Stand with Rand on immigration?
We now know that Cantor will resign his leadership post as of July 31. Is this long good-bye a scheme designed to help Cantor and Boner join in a suicide pact to pass immigration reform by then? Or is the July 31 date a phony designed to buy time so that the “leadership” can thwart the Tea Party in any leadership fight?
We love illegal immigrants. The ones we have had contact with, yeah, we love illegal immigrants. We’ve spent more than one night at bars, conversing occasionally, with the most delightful bartenders and waiters, enraptured with their lilting Irish brogues. Yup, they are here illegally. Trendy French restaurants filled with knowledgeable oenophile young waitresses here illegally – yup, we’ve been there. Hardworking, conscientious, construction workers and landscapers here illegally from Mexico and Central America performing excellent work at cheap cheap prices? Yup, we see them all the time working hard and well. We love illegal immigrants. So does the Chamber of Commerce.
Cheap labor is good for business. If it were up to the Chamber of Commerce and Big Business (and many small businesses) there would be a thousand workers for every job racing to the bottom line of wages. Every job would be a minimum wage job. Minimum wage jobs would no longer be starter jobs for students and those just starting out. Minimum wages jobs would be the bottom and top rung of the ladder.
Yes the academy, lawyer associations, and medical profession would try to keep their practitioner numbers artificially low in order to keep their wages high but eventually even they would succumb to the flood. Besides no minimum wage worker could afford their fees anyway so everyone would deflate their wages – except for the Chamber of Commerce. As Bob Dylan wrote, it is “Jack the Ripper who sits At the head of the chamber of commerce.”
The Chamber of Commerce wants low wages. Makes sense. We don’t blame them. The position of the Chamber of Commerce makes sense from their purely mercantile perspective. The counter will be the opposite of the Chamber right?
Surely Big Labor will come to the rescue of their workers and their wages, right? Right??? No, the corruption of Big Labor is complete – the betrayal of the working class by Big Labor is complete. Big Labor has sold out the working class to the Obama Dimocratic Party and the “creative class” clods at DailyKook type dens.
The bottom line of the bottom line: the Chamber of Commerce wants cheap wages and Big Labor has betrayed the working class. No one is fighting for the working class. No one can resist the destruction of the working class. Until last night.
It was late in May of this year when something similar happened – there was a “European Earthquake“. Watching as multiculturalism failed and faraway bureaucrats refusing to listen as they implemented their five year plans of great leap forwards the voters said “no”. Hey that was a clue.
In America, nightly news showed chaos on the southern border planned by Barack Obama in order to force his own five year plan of a great leap forward. It was lawlessness breeding helplessness. Barack Obama was creating chaos and the opposition party appeared to be helping Obama create the chaos.
Oh sure, the opposition party lied. “We’re not for amnesty” they claimed. But that was not the issue. The issue was the American people were being treated as vassals instead of Lords and Ladies.
In America the people rule. But now the servants think they can tell us what to do. The servants think they know better than us. The servants think they rule and the servant living in the White House thinks he rules by divine right. Um, no. In America,
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.
Last night, as we turned our attentions from the MoonOnPluto reports of carnage in Iraq and we began to incredulously witness the carnage in Virginia’s seventh district. At 7:39 it was Hey people!!!! What the hell is happening in Virginia????? Holy Cow!!!!!!!! Great Caesars Ghost!!!!! Ay Caramba!!!!!!! Soon after it was clear – Eric Cantor lost. Chaos reigned supreme in more ways than one.
Now, we know that the carnage in Iraq was almost impossible to find on American Big Media. GM is in trouble but Al-Qaeda is alive and well in Iraq. There was some coverage in print but on television it was as if Iraq doesn’t exist. But there was lots and lots and lots of coverage in Big Media about the carnage in Virginia. It was non-stop coverage on television and news stories in equal number to Obama’s lies – which is quite an accomplishment considering the number of Obama lies.
In Wake Of Cantor’s Defeat, Rand Paul Says He’s Still For Immigration Reform
The tea party senator rejects immigration hawks’ argument that the Virginia race was a referendum on the issue. “I say everywhere I go that I am for immigration reform.”
In the wake of Rep. Eric Cantor’s stunning primary defeat Tuesday night, many conservatives have rushed to declare the outcome a referendum on Republican efforts to pursue immigration reform, a key wedge issue in the race. But tea party hero Sen. Rand Paul isn’t buying it.
In a teleconference with Grover Norquist, a conservative champion of immigration reform, Paul told reporters Wednesday he wouldn’t back off his position on the issue.
“I still am for it,” Paul said. “I say everywhere I go that I am for immigration reform.”
Well we are going to steal from Shadowfax and from now on call that boy a wackadoodle two-headed dentist. If this is the path he lays out for Republicans to win, wackadoodle might as well start dating Monica Lewinsky, smoking cigars, and go back to worshiping Aqua Buddha.
Is this wackadoodle two-headed dentist the future of the Republican Party? Inquiring wackadoodles want to know:
Rand Paul Teams Up with Michael Bloomberg Group to Discuss Amnesty [snip]
Earlier this year at the University of Chicago, Paul told David Axelrod, the director of the school’s Institute for Politics, that he would “expand the work visa program to include” all of the country’s illegal immigrants. Paul also told students at Harvard University that amnesty legislation could pass Congress this year.
His lurch to the left still did not appease Hispanic groups, though. They called him “offensive” after he supported allowing all of the country’s illegal immigrants to remain in the country.
Keep pulling those teeth Rand. We’re sure you will strike gold!
Also digging deeper, in between breaks from pumping iron, is Paul Ryan. To his credit Paul Ryan has been silent since the Eric Cantor squashing. But earlier in the week, on June 9, DrudgeReport headlined a picture of Paul Ryan – Ryan Renews Amnesty Push:
Drudge Report Shows Effort by Paul Ryan, Mario Diaz-Balart to Pass Immigration Bill
The Drudge Report is highlighting an article that outlines efforts by Republican Congressmen Mario Diaz-Balart of Florida and Paul Ryan to pass an immigration bill before the summer recess starts.
Drudge is a popular conservative webpage that links to various articles.
The article in question was published on Breitbart, a popular political website that skews toward conservatives.
The article says that Ryan and Diaz-Balart are leading the effort to try to get an immigration bill passed in the few weeks left before the summer recess, and have been joined by a young conservative lawmaker, Rep. Mick Mulvaney of South Carolina.
“Absolutely,” Mulvaney told Breitbart. “I have been talking about immigration with my colleagues for months. Talking about important issues is part of my job.”
We declared “immigration reform” DEAD last year on the day of the Boston Bombing. We stated then that the Boston Bombing had bought opponents of “immigration reform” time and that because of the calendar for all intents and purposes “immigration reform” was dead, dead, dead.
Eric Cantor tried to resurrect it. Instead he got killed.
Now Rand Paul with a long, pointed, velvet, decorated with planetary oddities hat on, thinks he will perform a wackadoodle Aqua Buddha ceremony over the corpse and try to breathe life into the rotted carcass. Um, make that two long, pointed, velvet, decorated with planetary oddities hats for the two headed dentist.
Paul Ryan is busy checking his own pulse before trying his hand at a seance designed to bring back “immigration reform”.
We could not find Marco Rubio for comment.
