RUSH: It's the State of the Coup address tonight.USA Today is reporting that, for the second straight year, undocumented immigrants will be in the chamber when President Obama makes the State of the Coup speech tonight. "As Congress struggles to reach an agreement on a way to overhaul the nation's..." You know, this is dead. Except for the Republicans, this is dead. Everybody acknowledges it's dead for 2014.
The Democrats could not get it done on their own, and Obama could not get it done. I mean, the time passed. Now, the Republicans are planning on reviving it. It just goes to illustrate the game that's played inside the Beltway with the establishment of both parties. They're hell-bent on getting this done, and no matter how. There is no party difference on this issue. Never mind the fact that it only polls at 3%. Only 3% of the American people would rank it as an important issue.
So this is, again, the establishment forcing it on us. Chamber of Commerce is forcing it on the Republicans -- and the continuing parade of victims, people that break the law being portrayed as victims worthy of our sympathy. People who are breaking the law are being present as worthy of our sympathy and being presented as examples of what a mean country this is. They're gonna bring in a parade of undocumented immigrants to the State of the Coup speech for the express purpose of having them portrayed as victims.
Victims of what?
They have to be victims of America.
They're victims of our laws -- which are punitive, unfeeling, harsh, mean-spirited, and extreme -- and that is the message. That's why I'm calling this the State of the Coup, because the people in charge of this speech tonight are people who have nothing but problems with this country as founded. They don't like it, they resent it, they have been on a mission to change it the past five years, and there's no end in sight to that.
Bringing in for the second year in a row a parade undocumented immigrants to the House of Representatives? You can't get in there, folks. This is a tough ticket. You can't get in there. But the establishment wants a parade of undocumented immigrants, as it says here in USA Today, "as Congress struggles to reach an agreement on the way to overhaul the nation's immigration system."
Of course, it doesn't need to be overhauled.
Just enforce what's already on the books.
"Immigration advocates are increasingly pressuring the president," he doesn't need to be pressured, "to act on his own to stop the deportations of some of the 12 million..." Who's being deported? Maybe here and there. There are no mass deportations taking place. "Several of those advocates, and at least two undocumented immigrants, will be able to hear the president firsthand when he is likely to urge the Republican-led House of Representatives to get moving on an immigration overhaul.
"The group will be hosted by Illinois Democratic Reps. Luis Gutierrez, Mike Quigley, Jan Schakowsky, Brad Schneider and Bill Foster, all of whom have been pushing for the House to take up a Senate-passed immigration bill that would allow most of the nation's 12 million undocumented immigrants to apply for US citizenship." Now, do you know what the Republican Party's latest plan is? "Hey, well, let's go ahead and have 'em here, but no citizenship.
"They'll have green cards and come in. We'll let 'em work and satisfy the Chamber of Commerce, but no voting." I fully expect everybody to sign on to that as a way of getting it done -- and then about four hours after something like that would pass, there'd be a race to the nearest camera, probably won by Chuck Schumer, who would then start practically crying over the injustice and point out the continued flaws of the United States.
"How could we have just done what we did," he would say. "We have just granted them legal status. We have just said, 'Come on, in.' We have just said, 'We want you here to do the hard work that most Americans won't do. We want you to come in here getting filthy, sweaty, dirty, doing hard labor, and we're gonna pay you not much for it,' and then we tell them they can't vote? Who have we become? What kind of country are we?"
There'd be a mass move on to grant them citizenship after immigration reform passes. It's a slam dunk, and it's probably planned that way -- and, again, here we go with the massive attempt to guilt trip everybody over this. Present another group of people as victims of an unfair, unjust, and immoral, racially discriminatory country, led by the president of the United States and his party. Now, that's the real story of tonight.
