Obama to GOP Senator: If I Secure the Border, You Won’t Pass Amnesty


I don’t understand why so many people call Obama a compulsive liar. Clearly he can be honest. In private.

Here’s a little flashback from four years ago of Obama having a brief moment of private honesty.

On June 18, 2010, Arizona Republican Senator Jon Kyl told the audience at a North Phoenix Tea Party town hall meeting that during a private, one-on-one meeting with President Obama in the Oval Office, the President told him, regarding securing the southern border with Mexico, “The problem is, . . . if we secure the border, then you all won’t have any reason to support ‘comprehensive immigration reform.’” [Audible gasps were heard throughout the audience.] Sen. Kyl continued, “In other words, they’re holding it hostage. They don’t want to secure the border unless and until it is combined with ‘comprehensive immigration reform.’”

Sen. Kyl also said he reminded President Obama that the President and the Congress has an obligation, a duty, to secure the border.

Obama doesn’t do obligation or duty. He does what he wants. And what he wants is a whole lot of illegal aliens.

Comprehensive immigration reform has always been a poison pill. The border crisis got much worse once Republicans showed signs of failing to move on amnesty.

Now Obama is pushing unilateral amnesty to pressure the GOP into voting for amnesty. That was always the plan.

In Obamanesty, I wrote last year that,

It wasn’t just the 2012 election that stampeded Republicans into backing amnesty. Winning a majority of the Latino vote would not have put Romney in the Oval Office. Instead the real trigger was Obama’s unilateral implementation of the DREAM Act by executive order. Within some Republican circles, the perception was that Obama would implement amnesty either way and their only chance to control its scope and claim some of the credit for it was by getting out in front of the existing amnesty proposals.

It seems insane, but it’s also how Washington DC works. Given a choice between a series of piecemeal amnesties that Obama would control and own from start to finish… and an amnesty that they could have some claim on, a number of Republicans chose to back an Obama plan from his first term, rather than allow him to implement his own plan by executive order.

So Obama is upping the ante. Border security is never going to happen, but Republicans are being given a choice between passing Obama’s amnesty or protesting against Obama’s amnesty.

    Isn’t is disgraceful that the United States elected a President who won’t secure the borders. What he wants is to have all these illegals enter the country, then after he disburses them through the nation to change the demographics of the county, he’ll take his handy pen and write an executive order granting them immediate citizenship. The rest of us hard working Americans will have to fit the bill for their health care, education, food, shelter etc. I hope Congress wakes up, denies his request for almost 4 billion dollars (which still does not call for securing the border) and starts impeachment proceedings. We have to get this incompetent clown out office before he destroys America as we know it.

    Obama being a Muslim would not understand the concept of honesty!

    The idiot Republicans who didn’t vote for Romney in 2012, because he was a Mormon are getting what they deserve. Fortunately, in 1980, most Americans were smart enough to not re-elect Carter for 4 more years. As of 2008, there have been too many illiterate ignorant Americans voting for the Democrats because they are rewarded with free things, that actually cost taxpayers money.
    The Republicans will never win an election unless they get rid of ignorant green men and women who talk about stupid things like raped women not getting pregnant and “I’m not a witch” women who can’t explain away a high school phase. Republicans should want a women and men who can handle stress, stand up for themselves, speak in an educated manner, and have negotiating skills. Stay out of our bedrooms and stop ranting about abortion. The good people in Murrieta have more courage than the Republicans in Congress ever will. Harry Reid is in place because the Republicans favored Sharron Angle, a nobody to Republicans from So Nevada.

    Whatever the government gives can be taken away; which happens in most corrupt freedomless third world countries like Mexico and Indonesia. Our President Obama, who lived in Indonesia in the 1960’s, obviously learned a lot about creating a corrupt and selfish society and finds it comforting. In the 1960’s the Indonesian government was clearly Anti-American and received aid money from the USSR. Watch the movie, The Act of Killing.

      Read my post above. It is the Republicans who stand their ground.
      also it wasn’t just the issue of Religion in the 2012 election, it was the all or nothing pures and third party voters who enabled Obama’s presidency.
      The pures wanted a 100%, 95% wasn’t enough with MItt so wanting 100%, they got 100% leftist Obama.

      The problem is that those qualities involve finding professional candidates, which the average person isn’t. The establishment has much better feeders for them. If you take the average person who has some political involvement, but little experience with media time, this is what you end up with.

    A very well coordinated, manufactured Crisis. I just found out Nebraska HHS took in over 200 UAC’s and other illegal alien border crashers a couple of months ago and we are just finding out about it now. We are pissed. Everyone needs to contact their Governors and Mayors to stop them from accepting these people!

    • Webb

      Nebraska will betray its citizens in a heartbeat. I know.

    • susansmithNAG

      BREAKING NEWS ! When Nebraska Governor Heineman called DHS
      and U.S. HHS he was told that they are not seeking any Governor’s or Mayor’s approval NOR are they giving them ANY INFORMATION about the illegal aliens they are bringing to the states. Also, THE RUMOR MILL suggests that Government Agencies are threatening and intimidating state’s HHS depts and community organizations involved with the placement of these illegal aliens to keep their mouths shut and NOT to speak to the media, Governors or Mayors. Is this possible, is Dictator Obama instructing his SS GESTAPO agencies to threaten and intimidate states? http://www.kfab.com/player/?mid=25017931 http://www.kfab.com/onair/chris-baker-50457/chris-bakers-interview-with-governor-dave-12557640

    “Republicans are being given a choice between passing Obama’s amnesty or protesting against Obama’s amnesty.”
    Yes, that is the bottom line Obama long ago put the Republicans in.
    damn if they do, damn if they don’t.
    In the mean time while the Republicans stand their ground, secure the border first before any talking, they are the bad guys because they don’t want the illegals
    and then there is the crowd who think the Republicans hold both houses of congress and can stop it all.
    Even if they could, Obama would continue his Executive orders.

    …and if Congress passes amnesty, border security will never happen.
    How do I know that is true? I’ve been watching the unkept promises of the Democrats continuing on issue after issue since the time of Gerald Ford. Including the lie about the Immigration Reform Control Act of 1986, when Reagan himself got snookered by the Dems.

    It astonishes me that America has effectively allowed itself to be held ransom to two white-hating racist bigots like Obama and Holder.

    Tellingiy, neither of them are actually “black” but are, to use Obama’s word. mutts. LIke muslim converts who turn into complete fanatics, these two pieces of excrement will destroy America before they are done and, you know what. you did it to yourselves. 50 years of grovelling and apologizing and now your country is wrecked.

    This is from the CDC’s website. Has anyone even considered, that he might be committing an act of bioterrorism? I mean, he has friends who are terrorists, domestic, and foreign. I think the guy is a psychopath, and if he isn’t stopped, we are finished.

    Bioterrorism Overview

    What is Bioterrorism?

    A bioterrorism attack is the deliberate release of viruses, bacteria, or other germs (agents) used to cause illness or death in people, animals, or plants. These agents are typically found in nature, but it is possible that they could be changed to increase their ability to cause disease, make them resistant to current medicines, or to increase their ability to be spread into the environment. Biological agents can be spread through the air, through water, or in food. Terrorists may use biological agents because they can be extremely difficult to detect and do not cause illness for several hours to several days. Some bioterrorism agents, like the smallpox virus, can be spread from person to person and some, like anthrax, can not. For information on which bioterrorism agents can be spread from person to person, please see the alphabetical list of bioterrorism agents.

    This is still the law. He’s committing an act of treason.

    U.S. Constitution, Article IV, Section 4: The United States shall guarantee to every state in this union a republican form of government, AND SHALL PROTECT EACH OF THEM AGAINST INVASION.

    “Amnesty” is a cover-up word for FAILURE: failure to defend borders.

    How many crisis have to be created before Congress understands the Modus operendi of this administration, its called lying and creating a crisis to get your way, and intimidation.
