Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh on Friday put forth a theory as to why the Republican Party is seemingly willing to pass “amnesty” and create millions of “instant Democrats.”
“The Republican Party is embarrassed by its own base,” Limbaugh said. “How many times have I sat here and reminded you of this?”
The radio host went on to tell a story about his first ever trip to the Hamptons where he was visiting a “famous American Republican.”
“After dinner on the deck, a guy comes up to me — and a name you’d know, I’m not gonna tell you who — punches me with his finger in the chest [and says], ‘What are you going to do about the Christians?’ Remember now, this is my first trip there,” Limbaugh explained.
He said the man complained about “pro-lifers” hurting the GOP with their stance on abortion.
“Some of the same people have done the same thing to me on gun control,” Limbaugh added, later reiterating that the Republican Party is “ashamed” of its own base.

U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, in remarks that largely have escaped notice, has claimed that “creating a mechanism for [illegal aliens] to earn citizenship and move out of the shadows… is a matter of civil and human rights.”
Holder also said that the federal government will work hard “to safeguard the rights of language minorities.”
These claims are likely to add fuel to the growing controversy over the Senate amnesty proposal developed by the so-called “Gang of Eight.”
Holder made these remarks in an April 24 speech to the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund Awards Gala. MALDEF’s notable activity includes suing Sheriff Joe Arpaio and opposing Arizona’s immigration law.
Holder said, “[I]t is long past time to reform our immigration system in a way that is fair; that guarantees that all are playing by the same rules…”
However, one of the primary criticisms of amnesty is that it does not treat all immigrants according to the same rules. Instead, according to critics, amnesty would reward illegal aliens by allowing them to bypass established procedures required for legal entry.
Holder framed the amnesty proposal in grand terms:
“The way we treat our friends and neighbors who are undocumented – by creating a mechanism for them to earn citizenship and move out of the shadows – transcends the issue of immigration status. This is a matter of civil and human rights.”
Steven Camarota of the Center for Immigration Studies tells WND, “[T]he idea that people have a right to come and live in the United States is very problematic.”

Radio host Alex Jones today called for a second American Revolution led by states who would secede from the federal government and reconstitute the Republic under the terms of the Declaration of Independence, bill of rights and constitution.
The call for Americans to rally behind a restoration of the Republic and the bill of rights comes on the back of a burgeoning secessionist movement that has swept the country with residents from all 50 states submitting petitions to the White House calling for states to withdraw from the union and form their own independent governments. The petitions have received a combined number of signatures totaling over a million.
During his nationwide broadcast today, Jones laid out the battle plan for secession, emphasizing that states must first secede from the federal government, which has gone rogue, and then use the terms of the Declaration of Independence to restore the Republic, not create a new country.
Jones stressed that he was calling for a cultural restoration in the spirit of the bill of rights – a newly unified America under the Constitution – and not a violent overthrow, noting that it was the states that created the Constitution and the federal government in the first place.
Jones noted that the only course to restoring liberty was clear – “To follow the founding document of the Republic, the Declaration of Independence, wherein it is clearly stated that it is the right and the duty of the American people, when their government becomes destructive and tyrannical, to abolish and reconstitute it in a form that protects our liberties.”

During his acceptance speech earlier this week, President Obama alluded to immigration reform for millions of illegal aliens currently residing in the U.S.
The New York Times bestselling book “Fool Me Twice: Obama’s Shocking Plans for the Next Four Years Exposed” documents how Obama may go about granting mass amnesty in his second term.
The work, by Aaron Klein and Brenda Elliott, documents Obama’s specific second term agenda in all major policy areas, including the economy, jobs, immigration reform, health care, the military and electoral reform.
In his acceptance speech, Obama alluded to immigration reform.
“We believe in a generous America, in a compassionate America, in a tolerant America open to the dreams of an immigrant’s daughter who studies in our schools and pledges to our flag,” he said.
While the president did not specify what kind of immigrant he was referring to, many took his statement as an ode to a future amnesty program.
According to Klein’s and Elliott’s book, progressive organizations behind White House policy have already crafted specific, second-term plans for Obama to issue amnesty to millions more illegal aliens living inside the U.S.
There are also designs to remove the caps on H-1B visas and green cards, a move that would bring in an untold number of new immigrants.
