This weekend, the Congressional legislative bodies and many of the National Establishment types are meeting in Pennsylvania under the guise of uniting the Party. Don't let them fool you. While they will state the same old conservative rhetoric that they always do in public, in private they are plotting . Both Mitch McConnell and John Boehner have made it clear that they support Obama's amnesty, it's just that there is a question on the way it was brought about constitutionally. But whether or not the Senate supports the House on the executive amnesty issue which has found broad House disapproval in the way of a bill which was passed, should Obama veto it there are likely not enough votes to override. And even if he doesn't, both Republicans have made it clear that they stand for a bill to approve mass immigration approval as long as it originates in the legislature. When I think of what they are doing to themselves and the Party the word suicide comes to mind.
Make no mistake about it, the fix is in and the plan is for both men to be able to say they tried but just couldn't overcome the President. And we, the middle class will pay and keep paying while the wealthy crony-capitalists who own the Republican Party through the Chamber of Commerce will get their cheap foreign labor while the Democrats will get a huge influx of new voters. Nothing will be done to help American citizens yearning for work and America as we know it will never be the same again. Our quality of life will continue to slide downhill as America becomes "Third World North".
And, of course, there is always the budget and deficit, both of which show signs of greater levels of spending as Obama asks for a seven percent increase in funding (above and beyond the automatic baseline figures) and the Republicans, weak as usual, will eventually cave.
But despite this situation, there is hope in the woodwork that maybe will jell into a national campaign. It doesn't come from Congress, no it comes from a group of loyal Conservative activists who are banding together to fight. This group, headed by men such as Richard Viguerie, Andrew McCarthy and that wonderful lady fighter, Phyllis Schlafly, has put together a point paper detailing what the voters expect from the mandate they gave to the Party.
We won't go into detail on this today, but look for an upcoming commentary in the next few days in the Conservative Report (conservativereport.org) entitled, Are Republicans IN Retreat or ON Retreat? It will detail some of the things that this brave group is proposing which could stem the tide of the merger of the Republican Party with the Democrats.
As long as great men and women speak up forcefully with a viable message, there is hope. Let's keep the hope alive and turn it into action. With God's help we will ultimately prevail. Have a great weekend everyone.
