House Republicans – It’s Time To Step-up On Immigration
House Republicans opposed to the Immigration bill will be attacked in the same emotional and irrational style that Republicans were successfully attacked in 2012 for opposing free birth control. Likewise, the essence of their successful campaign against Mitt Romney was that he was bad because he was rich.
Liberal Democrats are as predictable as a broken clock. Their dishonest and obfuscating tactics will work if Republicans don’t step-up to the plate. Quite simply, the Democrats will whip up their base by mendaciously accusing the Republicans of being racists. Perhaps they might get lucky again and pull out some unrelated story in the news which will be indirectly tied to Republicans as they did in 2012 with the Treyvon Martin murder.
Scott Wheeler, Investigative journalist and author of Promoting Decline: Obama vs. America, recalls another incident:
“The Democrat machine has been highly effective in convincing Hispanic voters that Republicans are prejudiced against them as well. But those nebulous claims could have been obliterated with actual documentation of Democrat discrimination against Latinos. In 2004, the Fox News Channel reported that attorney Manuel Miranda, who at the time worked for Senate Republicans, uncovered startling documents that revealed Democrats plotting to oppose the nomination of a Latino Judge for the most pernicious of reasons—his race:
“One Nov. 7, 2001, memo from staff to Sen. Richard Durbin, [D-Ill.], suggested that the [Democrat friendly] ‘groups’ would help stall the nomination of Miguel Estrada, a Bush nominee to the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals. The memo called him ‘dangerous,’ in part because he ‘has a minimal paper trail, he is Latino and the [Bush] White House seems to be grooming him for a Supreme Court appointment’” stated the Fox News report. The Democrats opposing a judicial confirmation on the basis of the candidate’s race being Hispanic? That is the type of information that should have infuriated Latino voters—if only they had known about it. But Republicans did not use the evidence to brand the Democrat Party as anti-Hispanic. In fact, they did just the opposite, agreeing with Democrats that Mr. Miranda had no business releasing those documents because it wasn’t clear how he got them. Democrats did not dispute the authenticity but felt that their political hijinks written on government computers should be protected from public scrutiny. Luckily for Senate Democrats, this occurred before Obama’s “transparency” policy.”
Wheeler laments, “Had the situation been reversed Democrats would have insisted that the crime of discrimination far outweighed the questionable acquisition of the documents, but since the Democrats were guilty they demanded that Mr. Miranda be fired. Republicans dutifully complied.”
Under the vicious and ugly barrage of personal and emotional attacks, Republicans must keep their heads. It is never easy to be dragged through the mud but Republicans must stick to their principles.
Republicans have reason and common sense on their side.
The Democrats want to pass a massive bill that is filled with irrelevant pork barrel spending on pet projects such as $100 million per year to promote tourism in Harry Reed’s hometown of Las Vegas and free cars handed out to the new citizens.Democrats don’t want to address the two central questions which is securing the border and how to keep millions of new citizens from going on welfare in an economy that continues to maintain unprecedentedly high levels of unemployment.
The Republicans must stipulate in clear terms that the Amnesty must be preceded by the building of a fence along the border. The fence must be completed before a path to citizenship is considered. The government must prove that it can properly screen each and every applicant for citizenship for possible terrorist or criminal associations. Each new citizen must have a sponsor who is willing to sign a legal document guaranteeing the new citizen either employment or financial support for 3 years.
Scott Wheeler is an accomplished and diverse investigative reporter, having written two books and worked in many mediums as a newspaper reporter and editor, as well as chief correspondent for American Investigator Television Magazine. As a filmmaker he has produced 17 television documentaries, and has consulted on more than a dozen others. At least two times Wheeler’s reports have been on the desk of the President of the United States, and have invoked investigations by national federal agencies, as well as by foreign governments.
Among his investigative breakthroughs, Wheeler has worked undercover to reveal:
The internal operations of the terrorist group Hamas within the United States, leading to several suspects named in the reports to be arrested;
A weapons of mass destruction pipeline run out of the Middle East, as he posed undercover as an arms-dealer in 1998 and 1999.
Prior to becoming a journalist, Wheeler served in the US Army for two years, later returning to the Army National Guard and immediately volunteering for active duty service in 2005 and 2006. As a student, Wheeler played college football and after returning from Army duty was a high school head football coach for one year.
With a sincere interest to restore America to its core moral system of values and in an effort to reverse the politicization of the government body, Wheeler created and now heads the National Republican Trust PAC (GOPTrust) and National Investigative Media. Using his investigative prowess, coupled with his extensive knowledge of government and history, Wheeler is able to provide the American people the essential information they need in selecting their government representatives.
