Skip to comments.Your Phone Calls are Making an Impact on Capitol Hill -- It's Not Too Late to Halt Obama's Agenda
Posted on 06/26/2013 12:19:35 PM PDT by cotton1706
I'll give you some polling data to start with, and then I'll get to the court stuff. I'd actually rather start with some polling information data. Story from The Daily Caller: "Immigration Reform Critics Flood Senate with Phone Calls." You are overwhelming them and it is working, apparently. "Critics of the Democrat-led immigration rewrite are bombarding Senate orifices with thousands of phone calls. Advocates say that those calls are keeping numerous wayward Republican senators from joining the Democrats' immigration bill."
And, by the way, in a "closed-door meeting" today, John Boehner told the Republicans that the House will not bring up the Senate immigration bill. That's in a closed-door meeting today. A National Review reporter tweeted this out that Boehner has told House Republicans the House will not bring up the Senate amnesty bill. And one of the reasons why, no question about it, is your phone calls. Now, it's funny... Well, it's not funny, but it's interesting how the State-Controlled Media is not reporting this. It's almost as if they don't want us to know that it's going on.
Because, after all, it might give us the crazy and dangerous idea that letting our voices be heard is working -- and the last thing that the Drive-By Media wants you to know is that your opinion and your action and your phone calls are having an impact. Apparently this is one of the lessons that the Drive-Bys learned from when the push for amnesty was shot down back in 2007. It's the same thing that happened then.
You and millions of others literally overwhelmed Washington with your telephone calls and shut it down. So they try to keep you distracted with other news (even Obama scandals) until amnesty is a done deal. But The Daily Caller's Neil Munro is the reporter -- and you might remember Neil Munro. He's the guy that the media chased all the way to Washington Monument from the White House Rose Garden when he dared to ask the Dear Leader a question at a White House ceremony.
Imagine that, a reporter asking the president a question! He supposedly broke tradition, format, or whatever. The Drive-Bys started chasing Munro out of there and they ripped him to shreds. That's the guy that has the details. "Critics of the Democrat-led immigration rewrite are bombarding Senate offices with thousands of phone calls, and advocates say those calls are keeping numerous wayward GOP Senators from joining the Democrats' immigration bill.
"'Five hundred [calls] yesterday, and right now, they're just ringing non-stop,' said an upset staffer at the office of Mississippi Republican Sen. Roger Wicker, who has voted on both sides of the dispute." Five hundred calls, and that's just to one senator. That's probably the number that are getting through. That's not the total number of people calling. That's just the people getting through, and that's just to one senator.
"Protestors have sent 'hundreds or thousands' of calls to Ohio Republican Sen. Robert Portman's Republican office, a staff member told The Daily Caller. 'That vast majority of calls today have been on that... [and] we've been getting calls on that for a couple of weeks,' said a staffer working for Pennsylvania Democrat Sen. Robert Casey."
You won't read about this anywhere else the State-Controlled Media. And again, John Boehner, according to a National Review reporter's tweet, told House Republicans that the House will not bring up the Senate immigration bill. Now, one of the targets for this, one of the many reasons Dingy Harry is putting the pedal to the metal on this, is the August recess.
They know that you Tea Party people go to town hall meetings, and they traditionally conduct town hall meetings during the August recess. Now, this isn't an election year, and I wouldn't be surprised if some of these members actually cancel town hall meetings. But those that have them, you're gonna be there. You're gonna storm these things. You're gonna let people know what-for.
Dingy Harry wanted amnesty passed in both houses before members went home so it didn't matter what happened at the town halls. That's just one of the many reasons why they're putting the hurry on this. Now polling data. The Washington Examiner: "Poll: 77% of Americans Oppose Schumer-Rubio's Welfare Benefits for Immigrants." Seventy-seven percent!
"Majorities of Americans may tell pollsters they support the idea of giving citizenship to illegal immigrants, but a new poll from National Journal suggests that may change as they are better informed about what the immigration legislation currently being debated in Congress really does. According to the latest United Technologies/National Journal Congressional Connection Poll, 77% of Americans oppose giving government benefits, like food stamps and Medicaid, to illegal immigrants before they become citizens.
"Not only do 90% of Republicans oppose such a policy, but 65% of Democrats do as well." Well, now, the first part of the story, "Majorities of Americans may tell pollsters they support the idea of giving citizenship..." Of course they're gonna say that. They don't want to be tarred and feathered. It's the same thing with the Wilder Effect in taking a poll on Obama.
Nobody's gonna say what they really think because they don't want the pollster, even if it's a phone robo-call, to think that they're a racist. Same thing here with immigration. So the story says, "Majorities of Americans may tell pollsters they support the idea of giving citizenship to" illegals, but when they find out that they're gonna get all kinds of welfare benefits and so forth, that changes on a dime. Seventy-seven percent.
So, folks, keep talking.
Keep talking to your neighbors. Keep talking to anybody. Keep telling people what this amnesty bill really is. Once they find out what it really is, there is dramatic opposition to it -- and even without this, Obama appears to be in trouble. I don't know what ramifications any of this is gonna have, but I still wanted to pass it on to you. "A new Fox News poll released Tuesday shows that President Obama's troubles have only gotten worse since the cable news network's previous poll.
One thing on Boehner and the tweet from National Review Online saying that Boehner will not bring up the Senate immigration bill. Don't stop pounding them, folks. Remember what Senator Cruz said. Just call 'em. Keep calling your senator and your members of the House of Representatives, members of Congress. Keep calling them. We don't know that this is actually true. It could be true now, could not be true tomorrow.
Boehner may change his mind on whether to bring it up, and it doesn't preclude the use of the conference committee. So, you know, it's important to keep pounding. It is working. It is having an impact. I'll tell you, there's another way we know it's having impact and it's not being reported. The Daily Caller is the only place that's reporting it, and the reason for that is that the media doesn't want you to know, nor do the Democrats, nor does Obama. They don't want you to know it's working.
There's no question about that.
Phone numbers, what phone numbers? WTF?
Its all over America is done, oh where oh where will I run too like a coward.
Sorry, I wanted to be the first whiner. LOL
Fortunately I’ve got a solid congressman I keep in contact with on most issues and he’s solid against amnesty.
While Rubio and his Eight Senate Gangsters put out political smoke and mirrors to get a bill passed this year, nothing they have said will change the basic problem of aliens illegally invading the USA.
llegal aliens invade the USA for Welfare and Wages.
1.) End the Anchor Baby Law.
2.) End the Hospital Emergency Room No Payment Law (EMTALA).
3.) End ANY other Welfare to Aliens.
4.) Fine US employers $1,000 per day per employee who is an alien.
5.) Spend NO money on securing the border. It is a bottomless money pit.
6.) Spend money on Chainlink/ Concertina wire desert prisons for the mandatory 6 month imprisonment for repeat offenders who have invaded our Country more than once.
7.) Transfer Border Invasion Enforcement to the US National Guard in each State, and US Coast Guard.
8.) Repeal all State and Federal Laws that prohibit voter officials and Police from requesting proof of US Citizenship for any reason what so ever.
9.) Be as hostile to all illegal alien invaders as we should be to all Federal politicians and Federal Judges who vote for or support another Kennedy-style amnesty bill with no significant Federal enforcement.
This Amnesty bill is even worse than Obamacare, 1200 pages of pure evil.
Tell congressmen we dont want ANY bill passed, no matter what they promise. This bill is Amnesty for 30 million illegals, and a 1200 page bill that brings in 80 million 3rd world immigrants. The bill will destroy the U.S. and will turn the USA into a socialist state as is the democrats/Obamas plan.

Call and say I am calling to ask Congress member ___________ to support Michele Bachman, Steve King, and Louie Gohmerts effort to demand that Speaker John Boehner stop trying to help Obama and the Democrats pass amnesty for illegal aliens. Please sign their petition to require the Speaker to honor the Hastert Rule! If the Senate passes an amnesty for illegal aliens, it will be important that the House refuses to pass any immigration legislation in 2013! Stop the amnesty legislation!

Remember to call, call, call! Regardless of where you live, call all that you can and get others involved with the calls. Once you call, try to send in a written reinforcement of your message by website,twitter, facebook, fax, or mail.
If anything, it will be Congressmen who keep this abortion from happening. They are much more closely chained to voters’ wants than Country Club Senators that take advantage of short memories (like both my Georgia Senators - both of them are sleazy lying RINOs).
Twitter is a good way to contact your congresscriminal.
1) Republicans don't illegally break into other people's countries, so don't expect them to become Republicans!, and
2) The 'Immigration Bill' is nothing but a 'Democrat voter recruitment program' for 20 million more Democrat votes!!
3) Why would anyone forward 0bama's agenda when he hasn't even given us any answers on his many scandals such as the IRS targeting, DOJ spying on media, and Benghazi.
Dear Boehner, PLEASE TELL THE DEMOCRATS THAT YOU WILL NOT CONSIDER ANY OF THEIR LEGISLATION UNTIL THEY STOP PLEADING THE 5TH ON THESE SCANDALS!!!!!!!!!
Fix the border FIRST before ANY discussion of Immigration reform. Also, 0bama overturned Federal Immigration laws to create an atmosphere desperate for immigration reform. WTF is THAT all about? He's evil! We don't need REFORM.. WE NEED ENFORCEMENT!!!!!!
What phone number did you use to Call Bohner? I want to give him a piece of my mind too.
There’s even a proviso that states, it’s only pass port forgery if you have 3 or more forged pass posts. WTF? They’re purposely destroying America and we can do little, other than call, to stop it. Sheer madness.
Please share: Call Congress, stop Rubiocare, it’s working: 888-995-8349.
I got his office voicemail at 202-225-0600.
Rubiocare! That’s a good one!
"Not only do 90% of Republicans oppose such a policy, but 65% of Democrats do as well."
And the response from our betters in the Beltway Ruling Class is a line The Rock used to use: "It doesn't MATTER WHAT YOU THINK!!"
NSA must be bi-zee!
Absolutely! This law is what enables freeloaders who can afford to send remittances back to their "home" country to weasel out of paying their own medical bills, forcing everyone else to pick up the tab.
I called Rubio and I live in Texas. Told the person that they are all going to vote democrat and that Rubio is just plain stupid for believing differently.
I would say its about five years too late.
