RINO Lamar Alexander’s ‘Gang of Eight’ amnesty vote could haunt him in primary

WASHINGTON, July 8, 2014 — When Senator Lamar Alexander cast a vote for the “Border Security, Economic Opportunity and Immigration Modernization Act” of 2013, the liberal Tennessee Republican probably had no idea it would come back to bite him. That act is better known as the Senate “Gang of Eight” Amnesty bill.

Last year, despite the protests of conservatives, a number of liberal Republicans went along with Senate Democrats and passed Amnesty.

Most Amnesty supporters had no idea how this would blow up against them. In Virginia, Eric Cantor, the sitting House Majority Leader and a proponent of Amnesty was defeated by an unknown economics professor who challenged him on Amnesty.

In Mississippi, the razor-close election between incumbent and possibly senile Senator Thad Cochran and challenger Chris McDaniel, in many ways was also a referendum on Amnesty.

Now in Tennessee, liberal Senator Lamar Alexander is being challenged by conservative Joe Carr. Because Tennessee has one of the last primaries of the year, Alexander has the opportunity to learn from the mistakes of some of the candidates who have fallen earlier this year.

But he still cannot get around his support for Amnesty. Tennessee is a very red state and Amnesty is very unpopular in Tennessee.

As the shelters fill with children and as President Obama erases America’s southern border by refusing to enforce our immigration laws, Alexander’s popularity in Tennessee is falling.

Alexander is following the arrogant path of many other incumbents; he refuses to debate Joe Carr. Eric Cantor refused to debate Dave Brat and he lost badly. Thad Cochran refused to debate Chris McDaniel, and the only reason he won is his operation went out and bought Democrat votes.

Alexander rightly fears a debate which would turn into a referendum on his support of Amnesty and his terrible voting record. He is desperate to do anything to prevent that discussion.

Last year, when he kicked off his campaign, rather than talking about his support for Amnesty or his horrible voting record or his penchant for voting with the Obama Administration and against the people of Tennessee, Alexander ran an ad about fishing.

Amnesty is the issue for 2014. Amnesty will destroy the middle class. Last year, when the Gang of Eight was pushing their bill, they kept saying there are 11 million illegal aliens in America.

It is not 11 million. The number is well over 20 million and with Obama not enforcing America’s immigration laws, the number is going to skyrocket even higher.

Americans have every reason to be concerned about this. Forty or 50 million new people in America will bankrupt this nation. It is already happening along the border where schools and hospitals can’t stay open.

Perhaps the most deadly part of this is the diseases that are being carried by some of these illegal aliens. Some of these diseases are very infectious and doctors here are not prepared for them.

Lamar Alexander wants to talk about anything but his support for Amnesty. Americans and the voters of Tennessee do want to talk about it.

Perhaps the easiest answer is for Tennesseans to replace their Senator this year with one who supports America and Americans first.

Judson Phillips is the founder of Tea Party Nation, one of the largest Tea Party Groups in the country and the number one national tea party site on the Internet. A lawyer by profession, Judson has been involved in politics since his teens. “Ronald Reagan inspired me,” he says. Judson became involved in the Tea Party movement in February 2009 after hearing Rick Santelli’s rant on CNBC. “I heard there was going to be a Tea Party in Chicago inspired by Santelli, but didn’t know if anyone was doing a rally in Nashville where I was based. Finally I emailed Michelle Malkin and asked her if there was a Tea Party in Nashville. Malkin sent an email back saying, ‘No, why don’t you organize one?’ I did.” The first Tea Party in Nashville was held late February 2009 which drew a crowd of about 600. Judson then organized the Tax Day Tea Party in Nashville, which drew over 10,000 people into downtown. It was at this time that Tea Party Nation was formed. Later that year, Judson decided to bring activists from across the country together, so he organized the first National Tea Party Convention in February 2010, which featured Alaska’s former Governor and Republican Vice Presidential Nominee, Sarah Palin as it’s keynote speaker. He currently manages the Tea Party Nation website, writes several daily columns and is working on more projects than any one person should. He is a frequent guest on cable and broadcast news shows, including on Fox, MSNBC, CNN and others.
