When The Irresistible Dollar Meets The Immovable Patriot, What Happens May Be A New Party

After  the end of Canadian Prime Minister John Diefenbaker’s wildly chaotic term in office in 1963—think Jimmy Carter on steroids—shell-shocked operatives of his Progressive Conservative Party famously joked that they could only think of one possible re-election slogan: “Give the old b——r another chance!”

(Expletives deleted throughout because of puritanical—and PC—corporate censorware).

There are moments in politics when one slogan can crystallize a mood and spark an explosion. The ADD-crazed GOP House Leadership, by releasing on Thursday a statement on immigration policy that effectively endorses Amnesty and a legal immigration Surge—as Red State’s Daniel Horowitz says in his incisive analysis, “a mirror image of the Senate ‘Gang of 8’ bill, albeit cloaked in even more deceptive and disingenuous language”—is creating such a moment.

The slogan immanent in the Main Stream Media comment threads: “F— this s—t!”

Commenter “Muddle” in response to Republicans Open New Discussion on Immigration by Jeff Zeleny, abcnews.com, January 30, 2014:

The Republicans had better plan on some of these illegal aliens becoming Republicans because if this continues, I will leave the Republican Party, if this continues. I think it is just a matter of time. I wish this could be co-ordinated into a national action. For example, on the day the House passes such a bill, all of the like minded Republicans would resign from the party.

Commenter “Dontbetrayus” in response to The Divisions Have Begun on Immigration, by Fred Bauer, NRO, January 30, 2014,

I've had a lot of associates tell me that it's like 1860 all over again, with Republican leaders in both the House and the Senate bought off by the Chamber of Commerce and other lobbyists, and betraying the base with a knife twisted into our collective backs—we're witnessing the literal self-destruction of the GOP before us and its replacement with a new major party for the first time since 1860.

But I think it's more like 1776, judging by the rage I've been encountering from people across the political spectrum on this immigration reform bill, being p**sed on by the globalist traitors in both parties and told it's raining.

Folks, CALL AND WRITE to your representatives in Congress, stomp your feet, protest, make noise and get in their faces, and get ugly. This is what stopped this travesty in 2006 and 2007 and now we need it again, even angrier than before.

These may not always be sophisticated voices, but they are actually the more important for that—this is the grassroots speaking.

I have to congratulate me when I read all this. I predicted back in 2006 that immigration may be “one of those rare epochal issues with the potential to break the two-party system.” Former Reagan aide Lyn Nofziger predicted it in 2005. Last fall, there was a flurry of MSM recognition that a Third Party might result from what is now unmistakably a civil war inside the GOP. But because the Left and the GOP Donor Class are in agreement on the need to drown the historic American nation, for reasons of politics and profit respectively, I see no MSM discussion of it right now, despite Boehner’s boost to the issue.

OK, so no MSM Big Foot is saying a new party can happen. I don’t care. That’s what they all said in Canada.

When even Conservatism Inc. mouthpieces are telling the GOP House Leadership that it should not further demoralize the base by raising the immigration issue, it’s a measure of the sheer power of the Donor Riot that jellyfish like Boehner still feel compelled to float themselves into the trap.

The irresistible dollar is meeting the immovable patriot.

Something’s got to give.
