As waves of illegal aliens invade our country, Washington politicians encourage the invasion by offering these invaders amnesty.
What can you do about it?
The defeat of Eric Cantor was a good start. Let’s continue to send amnesty-backing politicians back into retirement. That’s the only message they’ll understand.
Only three of the fourteen Republican senators who voted for amnesty last year are up for re-election this year – Lindsey Graham (R-SC), Susan Collins (R-ME), and Lamar Alexander (R-TN).
Graham managed to get himself elected, and Collins is about the best Republican we can get out of Maine.
But we can send Lamar packing!
I just gave as much as I could to his challenger, Joe Carr. Will you?
Carr is a leading light of the battle against illegal immigration. He sponsored Tennessee’s E-Verify law, knowing that enforcing E-Verify is the only way to end the invasion of illegal aliens.
He is gaining endorsements and momentum. If he defeats Lamar, it’ll send another earthquake through Washington.
I stand with Joe Carr. Will you?
Or will you leave America defenseless against the invaders, like the spineless politicians in Washington?
In deep blue states, Democrat governors are in danger of losing their jobs because of Obamacare Exchange troubles.
While we dance on Eric Cantor’s political grave, there’s fat, smug Lindsey Graham, mocking us with his primary “win.” Graham got 56% of the vote last night. If Cantor hadn’t lost, the Lying Liberal Media would have made Graham the story of the night, touting his “win” as a voter endorsement of illegal-alien amnesty.
But 56% doesn’t seem like a lot. Incumbent senators like to be a little more secure than that. So how does 56% compare to how other senators have done in Republican primary fights? Five Thirty Eight provides this handy chart:
Only a few senators have polled less than 60% in primaries in the last ten years. Graham’s “win” was in fact a squeaker where he underperformed almost all of his Republican Senate colleagues.
Moreover, of the senators who did worse than Graham, at least two – Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) and Dick Lugar (R-IN) – lost their primary races because they supported amnesty. Not to mention many other prominent Republicans in non-Senate races…
So the message to Republicans in Congress is this: If you want to ensure that your next primary race will be a squeaker or worse, then go ahead and vote for amnesty. But it would probably be better for your political health if you just did what the people who elected you want you to do…
Eric Cantor joins a list of prominent Republicans whose political careers were ended “primarily” because of their support for illegal-alien amnesty:
Most recently Texas Lieutenant Governor David Dewhurst lost his primary because of amnesty.
Before that, Texas Governor Rick Perry’s weakness on illegal immigration cost him the presidential race.
Senator Dick Lugar (Indiana) lost his seat because of amnesty.
Senator Bob Bennet (Utah) lost his seat in large part because of amnesty.
Lisa Murkowski (Alaska) lost her primary, but won the general in a write-in campaign.
In Nebraska, Governor Dave Heineman won his Republican primary – “one of the most surprising defeats in Nebraska political history” – almost entirely because his very popular opponent, Tom Osborne, supported in-state tuition for illegal aliens.
Heck, Hillary Clinton began her downfall in the 2008 Democrat primaries when she waffled on driver’s licenses for illegal aliens.
And Marco Rubio’s presidential aspirations might die because of amnesty.
Jeb Bush’s too!

Since the 1954 Brown vs. Board of Education Supreme Court decision, Holder said laws that are overtly discriminatory no longer survive the “strict scrutiny” legal standard.
He said the new battleground against discrimination should focus on policies and laws that appear race-neutral but in practice impede equal opportunity.
“This is the work that truly matters – because policies that disenfranchise specific groups are more pernicious than hateful rants,” Holder told the graduates at Morgan State, a historically black college.
I agree wholeheartedly, Mr. Attorney General. So what are we going to do about this “policy that disenfranchises a specific group”?
This is the kind of “non-violent” offender that California Governor Jerry Brown releases early from prison in his “realignment” program: Los Angeles police are investigating potential links between the kidnapping of a teenage girl who was doused with flammable liquid and two other South L.A. attacks that left two women and a 1-year-old boy...
Back in January, we asked, “Are the Koch brothers the left’s new Emmanuel Goldstein?” Magic 8-Ball says, “It is decidedly so.”
PoliPundit, 2010: Unfortunately (for the nation, but fortunately for Republicans), I think an increasingly monolithic white vote will be a feature of future elections across the country, as Democrats cater more and more to their core racial constituencies. That’s why the Midwest went so overwhelmingly Republican in 2010. Every time Obama defends illegal immigrants,...
