The two leading contenders to replace amnesty guy Eric Cantor are making the ALIPAC list of 49 traitors in the Republican dominated House of Representatives, with the head of Americans for Legal Immigration, William Gheen still holding out on Jeb Hensarling. "No opinion yet on Hensarling," Gheen told CiR late Wednesday.
Gheen just completed putting together the contact information and proof of amnesty quotes on all of the 49 lawmakers at his Traitor List thread. And, in case you already didn't know where Paul Ryan (R-WI) stands, here's the money guru's quote: I do support what (Gang of 7) are doing. I think they put out a good product."
Now, recall here how Conservatives fell big time for Marco-speaks-with-forked-tongue-Rubio (R-FL) when he worked to get their votes by promising NO AMNESTY. However, when he got elected, he turned on them and his campaign promises to head up the amnesty gang in the Senate. He let himself step into the trap set for him by Dick Durbin (D-IL) and Chuck Schummer (D-NY). Co-author of the Senate amnesty bill was Lindsey Graham (R-SC) who coasted easily in his victory lap this week.
So stay alert, check out this list, and know who you are voting for when you line up to vote in little over four months. Here is the current list of pro-amnesty Republicans:
(all are "Rep"): Mark A. Model, (R-NV); Spencer Bachus (R-AL-retiring): John Carter 31st TX; Jason Chaffetz (R-UT); Mike Coffman (R-CO; Jeff Denham R-CA; Mario Diaz-Balart (R-FL); Sean Duffy (R-WI); Michael Grimm (R-NY); Joe Heck (R-NV); Darrell Issa (R-CA).
Sam Johnson (R-TX 03); Michael Kelly (R-PA); Peter King (R-NY); Raul Labrador (R-ID); James Lankford (R-OK); Devin Nunes (R-CA); David Reichert (R-WA); Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL); Paul Ryan (R-WI); Aaron Schock (R-IL); Chris Stewart (R-UT); David Valadao (R-CA); Greg Walden (R-OR); Daniel Webster R-FL); Don Young (R-AK); Ted Poe (R-TX); Bob Goodlatte (R-VA);Trey Radel (R-FL) resigned; Renee Ellmers (R-NC); Eric Cantor (R-VA DEFEATED BY AMNESTY STANCE).
John Boehner (R-OH); Fred Upton (R-MI); Kevin McCarthy (R-CA); Vance McAllister (R-LA): Robert Pittenger (R-NC); Mick Mulvaney (R-SC); Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA); Michael McCaul (R-TX); Ken Calvert (R-CA); Charlie Dent (R-PA); Steve Pearce (R-NM); Buck McKeon (R-CA) retiring; Glenn Thompson (R-Pa); Marlin Stutzman (R- IN): Pete Sessions (R-TX); Sessions is eyeing a run for Majority Leader as well. Just added are Joe Barton (R-TX); Justin Amash (R-MI); Tim Griffin (R-AR).
BTW: I was in the audience at the Orlando Tea Party East meeting when Marco Rubio was just making his first round of appearances onto the national political stage. The Email sent to me urging that I drive up to hear this wonderful young man was full of praise for a candidate the Tea Party felt would support their views. The average trusting audience members that day were so very thrilled with this young man and promised to work hard to get Rubio in the Senate. I remember he told listeners that immigrants to this country should go about it the legal way, "like my parents did." But, using the Tea Party vote turnout, Rubio was elected, then got pressured by his Calle Ocho constituents who urged him to vote "blood." Rubio did just that. One of the worst things in my mind that a politician does is say one thing in D.C. but yet another back home. Stay informed and know for whom you vote!
