Pity the poor media. What are the Lefts shock troops of propaganda to do? What are they to do?
Friday the House Gang of Seven lost its final two Republicans. The new configuration making it a Gang of Five Democrats has no chance of forcing America to except illegal aliens as equals. The votes they counted on to retake the House and hold the Senate wont be there. To its great shame, with the exception of the Washington Post, the Democrat cheerleaders in the media have ignored the story.
In a somber report the WaPos report on this major blow to Barack Alinskys plans with this despondent quote from Representative Luis Gutierrez (D, Mexico, South America and occasionally Chicago),It doesnt appear that were going to...

Amnesty is not dead. Don’t fall for the disinformation. Cantor’s version of the Dream will go to committee in October.
Cantors version of the Dream Act will go to committee in October.
I think Cantor is on the wrong side.
Ladies and Gentlemen, stand firm.
NO TO AMNESTY.
Cantor legalizes Dreamers, their families in the US and any family members that have been deported.
Amnesty is about as dead as the economy is roaring.
My admiration for House members went up 3 notches.
Illegal Alien Amnesty is Anti-American Bigotry
The House also needs to prevent any bill passing that will be used to by the Senate, in conference, to pass Illegal Alien Amnesty
Any Congress member that is not supporting 100% Illegal Alien Deportation....is supporting Illegal Alien Amnesty. Stop the BS and Spin...and secure the border/deport the Illegals
Well DUH! Maybe our calls are finally sinking in?
No, they are still looking for a chance to pass new immigration laws. This might get them through the next election without primary challengers.
WAPO: Indeed, it remains very possible that House Republican leaders will simply let reform die prioritizing their base over the need to repair GOP relations with Latino voters and to address a national problem both sides agree is in dire need of a solution.
Shame on those GOP house members for finally listening to their constituents instead of citizens of other countries.
With some help from both the budget fight and upcoming Debt limit fight maybe.
These make it much harder for House amnesty group to get that done. And for all we know many of them were just sweet talking latinos and not serious anyway.
I hope it’s dead. If they’re whispering with tears in their eyes, it’s a good sign.
Marc Rubio and Ted Cruz gave them the path to the Cuban vote yesterday. Cubans are here legally, they want legislation that supports small business growth and vocational training in HS (not debt for useless degrees) and have on the whole created successful communities. They learn English and know history.
Cruz and Rubio can bring that vote and the vote of equally law abiding hispanics into the Republican Party. Not by pandering. By getting back to conservative roots.
If only we can educate Rubio that the reason we want the invaders to go home is that they're here illegally. No pathway to citizenship (only a oneway ticket home) for those who can't establish that they got to the US legally.
AMNESTY IS ONLY THE BEGINNING ACCORDING TO THIS THIRD WORLD CONGRESSMAN : "Once Congress approves an immigration increase, minorities should demand more, said Gutierrez, a leading advocate of the (now defunct) Senate bill.
The next day after we pass it, you know were not going to be satisfied, were going to come back, he said. Were going to have a civil rights act, were going to have a voting rights act Nobody is leaving this fight once we conclude this first chapter, he said. "Hopefully, in 30 years, [we] can bring immigrants from all over the world, Gutierrez said.

MASSIVE MORTGAGE FRAUD ON CAPITOL HILL FACILITATED W/ OUR TAX DOLLARS :
The Congressional Hispanic Institute, Inc, is an entity organized by Cong Joe Baca (D-Cali) in his capacity as head of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus.
Cong Baca created "HOGAR" (Spanish for home) in 2003 to work with the mortgage industry, F/M, lenders, banks and latino community groups to increase mortgage lending to what savvy observers consider to be unqualified Latinos.
"HOGAR" colluded w/ Cong Baca in what was to become a massive bilking of taxpayers. Cong Baca calculatedly hyped the fact that the national Latino homeownership rate was 47%, compared with 68% for the overall population.
HOGAR was coached to call the figure "alarming," and to say "a concerted effort was required to ensure that by the end of the decade Latinos will share equally in the American Dream of home ownership."
HOGAR and Cong Baca conned the public, failing to note that most of the "dreamers" were illegals, citizens of Third World countries who had violated US borders.
Predictably, HOGAR colluded w/ co-conspirators which included:
(a) shaky mortgage companies that ran into big trouble;
(b) Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, both now under federal control after billions in taxpayer bailouts;
(c) Countrywide Financial Corp., sold to Bank of America Corp;
(d) Washington Mutual Inc., taken over by the US government and sold to J.P. Morgan Chase & Co.; and,
(e) New Century Financial Corp. and Ameriquest Mortgage Corp, both now defunct, killed by defaulted subprime Latino mortgages.
HOGAR's ties to the subprime mortgage industry were substantial. Bribery and self-dealing were rampant:
<><> Companies that donated $150,000 to Cong Baca got the right to have their own research fellow who would conduct fraudulent studies, which were cunningly used by industry lobbyists to pump lending.
<><> Bribery and extortion in the form of $100,000 annual donations to Cong Baca, for which HOGAR provided phony news releases from Cong Baca's Hispanic Caucus promoting a lender's commercial products to the Latino market,
<><> The most shocking example of bribery well- substantitated by Hogar's literature..... HOGAR announced it worked with Freddie Mac on a self-serving two-year examination of Latino homeownership in 63 congressional districts.
The "study" found Hispanic ownership on the rise thanks to "new flexible mortgage loan products" that the industry was adopting at the urging of Cong Baca's collusive coterie.
<><> HOGAR conned lenders into even more lenient down-payment and underwriting standards.
<><> As the subprime debacle unfolded, HOGAR declined repeated requests for comment despite the economic havoc their activities precipitated.
The mortgage schemes demonstrated the criminal activities of border violators with multiple identities---perhaps violent, terrorist-connected foreigners---colluding and conspiring to defraud private companies and public entities. And mortgage racketeering enterprises which employed sub rosa finance and business practices to carry out deceptions and frauds.
The alleged ring of swindlers---a Congresman, individuals with multiple identities, banks, insurance companies, mortgage brokers--might be charged with cheating the US govt, taxpayers and bank share holders out of hundreds of millions of dollars via an elaborate web of mortgage and bank frauds.
The mortgage Dreamers used multiple phony identities, fraudulent Social Security numbers, purchased from identity forgers in order to obtain govt-subsidized benefits.
L/E will find that individuals with multiple identities obtained fraudulent mortgages then flipped the houses at ever-higher prices to family member who then absconded to foreign countries, sticking banks (and taxpayers) with hundreds of millions in fraudulent mortgages.
BACKGROUND A Wall Street Journal investigative report related that, according to the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council examination of the borrowing spree, uncovered financial schemes by low-income housing groups, Hispanic lawmakers, a congressional Hispanic housing initiative, mortgage lenders and brokers, all colluding in fraduent schemes to increase homeownership among Latinos with forged documents which enabled massive fraud.
This was not simply the mortgage market at work. It was fueled by avarice, greed, and Congressional enabling fraudulent practices. In 2005 alone, mortgages to Hispanics jumped by 29%; Latinos with multiple fraudulent identities in low-paying jobs obtained subprime mortgages for prime properties---soaring to 169%.

And sweet talking the Chamber of Commerce and pro-amnesty lobbyists? Maybe, but they might be harder to fool, and the consequences for double crossing them is more difficult to fix.
Before this announcement, John Carter (TX-31, my district, and a member of what was at that time the pro-amnesty House "Gang of 7" but now is smaller without Carter and Johnson, leaving only one GOP member and 4 Dems) was selling amnesty at those groups in person. He also tried it at a Texas Tea Party group this year, but they were not buying, and in fact some members were talking about a primary challenge after that event.
Don't celebrate too soon though. We know what happens in horror movies after they think the monster is dead.
