Sen. Jeff Sessions Joins Our Call to Sen. Rubio: Pull Deceptive Amnesty Ad

Just over two weeks after listeners to the June 9, 2013 edition of The Teri O’Brien Show learned of Sen. Marco Rubio’s EXTREMELY disappointing Eddie Haskell routine over that weekend (saying on thing in Español on Telemundo and something else when he’s talking to us), Sen. Jeff Sessions has called on Sen. Rubio to pull the deceptive ad from “Americans for a Conservative Direction.” On that same edition of The Teri O’Brien Show, we told you that ACD is a phony front group, funded by Mark Zuckerberg, and that one of their ads starring Sen. Rubio contains a claim of “Border Security First,” when in fact the Gang of 8′s “comprehensive immigration reform” provides for no such thing.

From Breitbart:

The advertising campaign that Zuckerberg created with Rubio’s help under the organization “Americans for a Conservative Direction” is being run through the Facebook founder’s group. In the ad, titled “Today,” Rubio claims the Gang of Eight bill “puts in place the toughest enforcement measures in the history of the United States, potentially in the world” and that “no federal benefits, no food stamps, no welfare, no Obamacare” will be afforded to illegal immigrants.
While the argument that the Gang of Eight bill has the toughest border security in history was one of Sen. Rubio’s original talking points as the Gang of Eight rolled out this legislation in late April, he now says he will not vote for the bill if the border security provisions are not improved.
The argument that illegal immigrants will not have access to federal benefits, food stamps or welfare has also fallen apart. In late April, Breitbart News reported that Sen. Sessions had debunked that narrative, finding all the loopholes in the bill that allowed illegal immigrants immediate access to many state and local benefits programs as well as sooner-than-advertised access to federal benefits programs.

Sen. Sessions is correct. Honesty and integrity are conservative values. Please do the right thing, Sen. Rubio.

BREAKING: Sen. Schumer Admits Illegals Given Amnesty Won’t Have to Pay Back Taxes

Welcome to Obama’s America, where Tea Party and conservative groups are persecuted by the IRS, and open violators of our laws are not only welcomed with open arms, but made eligible for welfare benefits, and are not required to pay back taxes. From the Washington Times: 

The Senate immigration bill’s authors acknowledged Tuesday that their legislation does not require illegal immigrants to pay all back taxes, saying it would be too difficult to make them ante up everything they might owe.

Sen. Charles E. Schumer, the New York Democrat who is chief sponsor of the bill, said illegal immigrants by definition are living in the shadows, and requiring them to reconstruct their pay history could be tough — and potentially keep many of them from legalization.

Sen. Rubio, don’t walk, run, away from this bill.

BREAKING: Sen Judiciary Committee Passes Gang of 8 Immigration Bill

Chuck Schumer’s bill is moving ahead. Earlier today, we learned that Sen. Orrin Hatch would vote for it. From MS-NBC:

Sen. Orrin Hatch of Utah, long considered a Republican swing vote on the 18-member Senate Judiciary Committee, announced Tuesday night that he will vote the comprehensive immigration reform bill out of committee after the panel approved language relaxing restrictions on employers seeking to hire foreign workers for high-tech jobs. But he cautioned that he may vote against the bill on Senate floor if other changes to the legislation are not made.

Here’s my favorite part of the MS-NBC story:

Earlier Tuesday, the committee voted down an amendment proposed by Texas Sen. Ted Cruz that would have stripped out the Gang of Eight’s foundational principle that qualified undocumented immigrants to the United States should be eligible to work towards full citizenship.  The amendment failed 5-13 , with Hatch joining Gang of Eight Republican Sens. Jeff Flake and Lindsey Graham in voting with Democrats against the measure. Cruz, discussed as a possible 2016 GOP presidential candidate, said the inclusion of the path to citizenship would “only encourage others to violate the law.” The Tea Party-affiliated senator added that, if the pathway remains in the bill, the reform effort will be voted down in the Republican-controlled House. That assertion was flatly rejected by Schumer, who retorted that “if we don’t have a path to citizenship, there is no reform.” Another Cruz-sponsored amendment that would have made undocumented immigrants ineligible for means-tested federal benefits failed 6-12.   Hatch voted in support of that measure.

Oh great. We wouldn’t want them to be ineligible for benefits, would we? This is not good news. I think it’s time to ramp up the pressure on our representatives.

Like Benghazi Lies, “Comprehensive Immigration Reform” Unraveling

From the Washington Times: 

The Heritage Foundation said Monday that legalizing illegal immigrants would cost taxpayers a net $6.3 trillion over the next 50 years — releasing a report that ignited a venomous battle over an immigration bill and who is truly representing the conservative movement in the debate.
Driving the costs in the Heritage report are simple demographics: Illegal immigrants are more likely to lack a high school education, and more than a third of households headed by illegal immigrants live below the poverty line, meaning those households consume more in services than they pay in taxes. …

Sen. Marco Rubio, Gang of 8, Comprehensive immigration reformOver the course of a lifetime, that works out to each illegal immigrant-led household taking $592,000 more in government benefits than would be paid in taxes, said Robert Rector, the report’s chief author.

“This should be considered a minimum estimate,” Mr. Rector and co-author Jason Richwine wrote. “It probably understates real future costs because it undercounts the number of unlawful immigrants and dependents who will actually receive amnesty and underestimates significantly the future growth in welfare and medical benefits.”

Some people like former MS governor Haley Barbour accuse Heritage of putting out a purely political document designed to scare conservatives in Congress. I say “be afraid. Be very afraid.” I thought Sen. Rubio had caught on to the fact that he is being played by Chuckie Schumer, but I keep hearing the ads (video of ad in the link) he made promoting the so-called “Gang of 8″ “comprehensive immigration reform” (read “obfuscate the reality by overwhelming everyone with complexity” bill) for The American Action Network, a group formed by “former Minnesota Sen. Norm Coleman and GOP donor and activist Fred Malek,” according to the Newsmax article linked in this paragraph.

Happy Cinco De Mayo, or as Barack Obama might say, “Cinco de Cuatro!”

Barack Obama goes to Mexico, warns us not to get all “bogged down” worrying about border security, and apologizes AGAIN for the United States, this time for being responsible for drug trafficking and the prevalence of guns, and conveniently neglects to mention that his administration deliberately sent lots of them there in an attempt to gin up gun control hysteria in the United States. As his fellow pinko Lenin would say, to make an omelette, you’ve got to break some eggs. What’s a few hundred dead Mexicans?

For the 5th time in the last 18 months, Obama goes to Ohio, this time to THE Ohio State University to reward the wet-behind-the-ears Obamabots who mindlessly voted for him because he’s so cool. He warns them not to get all bogged down in listening to people who tell them that government isn’t the source of everything good in their lives.

With a straight face, faux reasonable, moderate, middle-of-the-road guy/national embarrassment Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) explains that unless we pass the 844-page “comprehensive immigration reform,” it won’t be possible to make sure that people like the Tsarnaev accomplices don’t overstay or re-enter the country with expired student visas, demonstrating how breathtakingly stupid the democrats really think we are.

Rudy Giuliani makes a great case that Robel Phillipos, Azamat Tazhayakov and Dias Kadyrbayev should be charged with being accessories in the murder of MIT police officer Sean Collier.

On May Day, amazingly, once again, illegal aliens emerge from “the shadows” to wave Mexican flags and hang out with communists and anarchists. The Left, including their stenographers in the LSM, say “Communists? What communists?” So does the afore-mentioned pudgy huckster, Dick Durbin.

Benghazi survivors remain “in the shadows,” but whistleblowers will testify on Wednesday before Darryl Issa’s committee.

Bill Maher celebrates the gassing and incineration of his fellow citizens by our government at Waco.

At the NRA convention, Wayne LaPierre says bring it on, and reflects on what it’s like to be called a “liar” by Barack Obama. I think it’s sort of like being called “fat” by Michael Moore, or “stupid” by Elisabeth Hasselback.

Never Mind. Now I Understand Why We Wanted the Boston Bombers Here. To Collect Welfare Benefits.

On last Sunday’s edition of The Teri O’Brien Show, we discussed the fact that there are a lot of questions remaining about the activities of the Tsarnaev brothers, not the least of which is “who paid for these two mopes to live in what they considered this evil infidel country?” Now we have part of our answer. From the Boston Herald:

Marathon bombings mastermind Tamerlan Tsarnaev was living on taxpayer-funded state welfare benefits even as he was delving deep into the world of radical anti-American Islamism, the Herald has learned.

State officials confirmed last night that Tsarnaev, slain in a raging gun battle with police last Friday, was receiving benefits along with his wife, Katherine Russell Tsarnaev, and their 3-year-old daughter. The state’s Executive Office of Health and Human Services said those benefits ended in 2012 when the couple stopped meeting income eligibility limits. Russell Tsarnaev’s attorney has claimed Katherine — who had converted to Islam — was working up to 80 hours a week as a home health aide while Tsarnaev stayed at home.

In addition, both of Tsarnaev’s parents received benefits, and accused brother bombers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan were recipients through their parents when they were younger, according to the state.

If democrats had their way, this bunch would also have free broadband internet. 

Other questions about these two mopes that I mentioned on last Sunday’s show, which many are asking, is “why exactly were they in the country?” and “Other than murdering four people, and maiming a couple hundred others, what did they contribute to America?”

Never mind, it’s all clear now.

Actually, it’s not. Were welfare benefits really sufficient to fund Tamerlan Tsarnaev’s trip to Russia? How did they afford that? Democrats, and useful idiot Republicans, promoting amnesty for illegals bleat their usual “nothing to see here,” they had no connection to foreign terrorists, full speed ahead on our “comprehensive immigration reform,” but I am not persuaded.

If this case doesn’t prove to you that we need to expedite the legalization of millions of illegal aliens, I don’t know what would.

What say you?
