Skip to comments.Boehner Working with Obama to Ambush House Republicans on Bloomberg-Backed Immigration Changes(Guns)

The good thing about anti-gun liberals in Washington is that they are pathologically incapable of keeping their mouths shut.
And, this morning, shortly before 9:00, MSNBC commentator Dick Gregory announced that House Speaker John Boehner, the day before, had told a private meeting of reporters that he had been talking with Barack Obama a lot about pushing immigration reform.
Its pretty clear why Barack Obama wants a bill which would either legalize or grant citizenship to as many as 11.5 million people who, according to Latinos expressing their opinions in a Pew poll, would cast 88% of their votes for liberals like Barack Obama.
Its also clear what Speaker Boehner has in mind: If he sabotages his own party, the liberal media will throw him a doggie treat.
But, for other House Republicans, the advantage of having an Obama/Boehner knife in their back is a little less clear.
A note on why gun owners have skin in the immigration game: By turning a net 8,000,000 people into an Obama army, even legalization without immediate citizenship would fundamentally change electoral politics for the 2014 elections.
This is why, along with gun control, former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg has made immigration reform his central priority.
The anti-gun Bloomberg knows that legalization of persons unlawfully in the U.S. will create an Obama army which will transform the 2014 elections and achieve the almost impossible task of delivering the House and the Senate to the party of gun control.
With Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid in power in 2015, the Obama army will then get their citizenship reward and gun control will advance.
Communists never sleep.
Yeah, I saw this Bloomberg angle a while back.
Obama and Holder must have found those photos of Boehner with the small farm animals.
Repeating xzin's quote from above, it's that big of a deal.
It is truly a nuclear issue.
You cannot support ANY sort of legalization and call yourself a conservative. In fact there's no way you can call yourself anything other than a statist.
Boner is the kenyan’s agent in the Congress. NO elected official can be trusted to retain any principles because NSA has something politically damaging on every one of them. Even Cruz will be turned at the point when it is deemed politically necessary to turn him, or he will be politically destroyed by revelations about something he did or that happened to him when he was 8 years old.
It appears that the Speaker knows he’s short on time before he’s mr Not Speaker, and he’s going to do some damage while he can.
Juan Boner is attempting to give us a parting party gift. He wants to give us the shaft, bend over citizens err subjects.
Why isn’t the Tea Party camped out on Capitol Hill until Bonehead, Cantor, and Ryan resign in disgrace?
Are there so few conservatives left on Capitol Hill that these three a-holes can sell out the country on behalf of the GOPe without consequences?
I cannot comprehend selling out my country, my family and way of life for money and power. What good is all that when you will go down in history being seen by good, reasonable, moral people as one of the more despicable humans that has ever breathed the air? I know he is a douche bag, but surely they have threatened to kill his family unless he sells out.
just one letter different
Boehner, Cantor and Ryan are all out to screw us and get wealthy in the process.
Our survival depends upon their removal from the leadership posts they hold.
Will Boner kiss us first?
No, he, like almost every other member of the GOP, agrees with democrats and their agenda.
Anyone know if Boehner is a Jesuit?
There was an Operation Valkyrie to unseat Ernie the Keebler Elf Gingrich in the 90’s for less than this. Where is the much vaunted tea party to depose the Weeping Cheeto?
