We would all do well to acknowledge just who the power brokers are who are pushing amnesty. Please note below from Open Secrets, Microsoft's big issues. Gates gives most of his $$$ to democrats, except for lobbying. He supported Obama, is a fan of amnesty. He likes cheap labor.
Microsoft - TOP ISSUES LOBBIED, 2012 1. Taxes 2. Immigration 3. Telecommunications 4. Computers & Information Tech 5. Copyright, Patent & Trademark
Do you know who his biggest lobbyists are.....The K St. goons who facilitate his liberal agenda? That might surprise you.
[SNIP]Yesterday, Grover Norquists weekly Americans for Tax Reform conclave was the venue for an announcement by Suhail Khan that he was becoming director for external affairs for Microsoft.
Khans transformation into a corporate lobbyist comes amidst rising concerns in conservative circles about his longstanding family and personal ties to the Muslim Brotherhood (MB or Ikhwan) in America and his positions in favor of such MB priorities as building the Ground Zero mosque, closing Guantanamo Bay.... dissembling about shariah, etc.
THAT would be the same radical Islam apologist Suhail Khan, CPAC organizer & board member AND Grover Norquist, CPAC organizer , founder of the Islamic Institute & Microsoft lobbyist, friend of the American Conservative Union...who happens to also be for AMNESTY.
An article in the nation explains how the Norquist scam works:
Take General Electric, which faced withering, bipartisan criticism last year when it was revealed that the company, thanks to a myriad of tax credits and other tax subsidies, had paid no federal income taxes in 2010. Norquist was there to defend the company in a chat with The Washington Post, arguing absurdly that removing billions in tax rebates to GE would just be a tax on consumers. Cutting GEs tax credits, after all, would break the Norquist pledge.
In a recently posted 2011 giving report, General Electric says it made a contribution of $50,000 to Norquists foundation that year. Consider thatGE gave more to Norquist in 2011 than it paid the IRS for income taxes in 2010, a year the corporation made $14.2 billion in profits.
Then he sends out volumes of fund raisers for ATR and his various other conservative sounding 'non profits' to loyal conservatives so they can send their money to him to facilitate the likes of GE and Microsoft! And IT'S all legal! Lying and using US citizens to bring about amnesty to profit our enemies is just another day at the office for Norquist and Khan.
Bottom line? Conservatives, you are paying for your own demise while Grover & Khan are raking in your hard earned money at CPAC and the ACU!
They don't care about poor aliens, and they don't care about YOU!
yea but at least you aren’t stuck in the middle with me. The middle where the shots fly. Dang this ducking and dodging. Getting tired of being shot at! Need bodyguards? Have gun will travel.
LOL!! Some days I feel like I’m on a firing range!
Just got another article about lobbying for amnesty. They don’t make the connection to our ‘conservative’ leaders.
Immigration: Give me your poor, your tired . . . your lobbyists? http://reporting.sunlightfoundation.com/2013/immigration/
The next time you send money to ATR and some tea parties (teaparty.net, TPNN - have never seen one of their fundraising emails against amnesty!), be aware that it is likely ending up in the pockets of Bill Gates, GE & Grover Norquist...and NONE of them have our best interests in mind. ATR is a scam devised to fool conservatives into thinking someone is working for them to control spending/taxes....think about it...in all these years WHAT has ATR done to control either?
Officials Concede Failures on Gauging Border Security
By JULIA PRESTON
Published: March 21, 2013
More than two years after Homeland Security officials told Congress that they would produce new, more accurate standards to assess security at the nations borders, senior officials from the department acknowledged this week that they had not completed the new measurements and were not likely to in coming months, as the debate proceeds about overhauling the immigration system.
Thanks for all the info regarding Amnesty and those who are pushing it
Something was definitely wrong w the ACU when they gave Marco Rubio an A+ rating when he not only is Amnesty Liberal... but has voted with the Dems as much as the Maine GOP Senators
The ACU gave Mitch MCConnell a 100% conservative rating too!
We’ve been sold out.
I’m wondering if our latest new troll “Fester Chugabrew’’, the illegal alien champion is going to show up here.
I think IT is stuck on the other thread.
New poll...NO ONE wants amnesty, they want the border secure. It’s obvious our ‘leaders’ care more about the lobbying $ from GE and MIcrosoft.
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 59% of Likely U.S. Voters favor a plan that would legalize the status of those here illegally if they have otherwise obeyed the law provided the border is really secured to prevent future illegal immigration. Twenty-six percent (26%) oppose this comprehensive immigration reform plan even with the promise of tougher border control. Fifteen percent (15%) are undecided.
* 46% Think Tougher Border Control Unlikely If New Immigration Law Passes
* 48% Think Citizenship for Illegal Immigrants Will Encourage More to Come
* 63% Oppose Drivers Licenses, Public Benefits for Illegal Immigrants Who Get Work Permits
* Real Border Control Has to Come First in Any Immigration Deal By Scott Rasmussen
He’s still filling out the Butthurt report form after the other day probably. He learned that the Stupid really does burn.
Thanks for the ping AB ;)
“Conservatives’ don’t want to take any responsibility for funding their demise through their cable/dish bill. Football is a more important ‘principle’ to many of them.
This stuff? Sure it’s true. But they don’t ‘really’ care. If they did, they’d pay attention and look into it. So unfortunately WE get what THEY deserve. And they blame everyone else for it.
“So unfortunately WE get what THEY deserve. And they blame everyone else for it.”
I see that the trickle is starting. Fewer fanboys defending the BS lately and more people standing up. But still VERY few.
I am so disgusted with it all. I am actually far more ticked with ‘conservatives’ than I am with Barry or the GOP. Because WE are SUPPOSED to be the smart and free thinking ones.
Guess for most that was a self deluding lie as well. Just like their ‘conservatism’.
