GOP Voters: No Retreat On Immigration

|| By FITSNEWS ||  As noted on many previous occasions, this website has never “breathed fire” on the issue of immigration.  But then again we’ve never supported unconstitutional power plays by aspiring despots, either.

That’s why we slammed U.S. president Barack Obama for his recent executive actions on immigration – which even left-leaning Saturday Night Live  recognized as being a flagrant abuse of power.

“Obama cannot be allowed to usurp authority that doesn’t belong to him, no matter what his intention,” we wrote.

Indeed …

“Republican” voters agree.  Overwhelmingly, in fact.  According to a survey conducted by veteran pollster Patrick Caddell, there is monolithic GOP opposition to Obama’s actions – not to mention looming consequences for any “Republican” who chooses to accommodate the administration on this issue.

More than 80 percent of GOP voters oppose Obama’s immigration orders – while 70 percent support legislation “preventing any use of taxpayer money” to implement them.  Meanwhile a whopping 90 percent of GOP respondents believe Obama has exceeded his executive authority in issuing them.

Ready for the kicker?

By a ten-to-one margin GOP voters said they would be “less likely” to support a candidate for Congress who allowed tax dollars to go toward the implementation of Obama’s orders.  In fact two-thirds of GOP voters indicated they would be “much less likely” to support such a candidate.

That’s about as clear and unequivocal data you can get on an issue, people …

For those of you keeping score at home, Caddell’s firm polled 602 voters who were either “Republican” or voted for “Republicans” in the most recent midterm election.  Using a mix of land lines and cell phones, the nationwide survey was conducted between December 26-30 and has a margin of error of plus or minus 4 percentage points.

Our guess is opposition to Obama’s orders is even stronger in South Carolina – which in addition to hosting the “First in the South” presidential primary is also one of the states challenging the measures in court.

Wow! That’s news! There’s monolithic Republican opposition to Obama passing gas when he wakes up each morning.

Let me fix that for you. There is monolithic Republican opposition to Obama waking up each morning.

The “hope and change” is that the gravy train from the feds will allow Taxifornia to finance the newly arrived one million + “illegals” … They need the most help ‘cause they are there to get drivers licenses, food stamps, medical insurance, cab fair, Pelosi’s day care project … and to fill those hundreds of CalTrans road construction and upgrade jobs (now that 4500+ Taxifornia Citizen employees have been laid off there).

The Republican and Democratic establishment loves illegal immigration. Is any corporation or industry hurt by illegal immigrants? They constitute a cheap pool of labor and also are customers.

If somehow these immigrants could all magically be repatriated tomorrow, the mega-donors behind the establishment would howl with fury. Could you imagine how Wal-Mart, just to name one corporation, would feel when a quarter of their customers disappeared overnight?

Wow, older white republicans don’t like brown people coming to “their” country. Too bad it’s going to continue happening and there is nothing they can do about it.

Smirks January 5, 2015 at 9:59 am

Wow, older white republicans don’t like brown people coming to “their” country.

Not legally, anyways. They’re always the first ones to buy products or services from businesses that exploit illegals, though.

They just want them to mow their lawns and then go away.

It really is that simple. And for the present time that is exactly what they do. They work all day and then disappear into the shadows at dusk not to be seen again until dawn.

Sucking the life out of tax paying middle class … while rich republicans and limousine liberals laugh about it since there’s only one thing they like more than there money and that’s cheap labor.

“there is nothing they can do about it”

Well, they will whine incessantly about it; that much they will do.

Rocky January 5, 2015 at 9:49 am

Well here’s the real kicker. Like it or not, the GOP in the House and the Senate are going to craft an amnesty bill and immigration reform bill that will be nearly identical to the Senate’s bill from 2013, and they will pass it and sent it to the President for his signature. And he’ll sign it. Why? Because – Jeb is watching. He won’t run if he doesnt’ have it off the table, and he’s clearly running. Which means that behind the scenes, where the Bush family still calls the shots, the deal is being done. So cry and whin all you want – it’s coming. “But, but, but – we won the midterms.” No! The Establishment won the midterms. You just handed it to them like lemmings. Here comes that RINO horn.

Sandi is dating an illegal. She said it really is the best boyfriend she’s ever had. Guest actually is one. Guest is an illegal alien Muslim.

TyroneMamaCollards January 5, 2015 at 11:25 am

All of this must be distilled through the Jeb Bush sieve.

johnq January 5, 2015 at 12:13 pm

Fuck ’em. Ignore. Move on.

Inbred fucking assholes waited to long to do anything and have no solution of their own.

Too little too late. Don’t be surprised if the rest of the country isn’t worried about a bunch of tea party dickweeds getting their panties in a wad over something they helped bring about.

John Boehner premeditatedly passed a version of
the Senate’s amnesty bill S. 744 to Obama by August of 2014, but ALIPAC
supporters stopped his plan with our campaign that shut down Boehner’s visible
cooperation with Obama in under 48 hours!

How can Republican Members of Congress swear an oath of
office to “support and defend the Constitution” and then, as their first
act, vote to confirm as Speaker someone who has enabled the shredding of the
Constitution? As of Monday morning eight principled Members of the House have
publicly stated they can’t, and consequently they will not vote for John
Boehner’s re-election as Speaker, and we hear many more are ready to join them.

The magic number of Republican votes needed to throw the election
for Speaker into a second round is 29 because that’s the number of votes that
would deprive Boehner of the absolute majority he needs to maintain power. The
Tea Party leadership will not vote for him.

This year conservatives already have seven out publicly
against Boehner. The Capitol Switchboard number is 1-866-220-0044. We urge you
to call your Representative and urge him or her to vote for anyone but John
Boehner in round one when the election for Speaker is conducted on January 6, 2015 and
for the most conservative alternative that emerges in round two and beyond.

current situation whereby Obama decreed amnesty for illegal aliens and, in
doing so, removed the United States from Constitutional governance, is a
plot hatched behind the scenes. This plan
allows Obama to take action that the elites desire but that the American public
does not want, while also letting Boehner and McConnell pretend to oppose him
when in truth they are protecting and facilitating Obama and these massive
violations of their oaths of office!

John Boehner deserves to be thrown out of his leadership
position and out of Congress for lying to lawmakers, lying to the public,
supporting amnesty for illegal aliens, and violating his oath of office to
protect and uphold the US Constitution!

A new poll (click) shows that more than 60% of Republicans
want a different Speaker of the House than that lying amnesty and Obama
supporting John Boehner! The good news is that if we can get 29 Republicans to not vote for Boehner this Tuesday, a true
opponent of Amnesty and Obama like Congressman, Trey Gowdy (R-SC) entered Congress with a definite
commitment to the conservative principles that have guided him throughout his
years in public service. At the core of those principles lies a firm belief in
a limited government that inspires trust and demands accountability. or Louie Gohmert could become Speaker!

Establishment Republicans, and Washington insiders who have made
millions feeding off Boehner’s brand of Big Government Republicanism, are
desperate to keep Boehner in the Speaker’s job. With John Boehner it’s more
of the same, as puppets of Special Interests.

They are doing their best to cheat, pressure,
bribe, bully and lie to Republican members of Congress to convince them to keep
Boehner in power.

And with most Republican members of Congress those tactics
will work, but when the vote for Speaker opens on January 6, 2015 conservatives don’t
need most or even a majority of Republicans to vote against John Boehner; they
just need 29.
