    Yes, the invasion of illegals encouraged by the left has been something. There are more here in the US than the total populations of a number of countries in Europe.

    This is why the backlash has begun. Supporting foreign invasion is not a winning long term strategy, I guess unless you are a country in Europe, then it's part of the culture.

    It looks to me like it's the USA which is happy to be invaded by other people and cultures.

    Explain that to us. If you can.
    It sucks to live in Europe, and people can't wait to gain the freedoms the United States represents to them, so they do everything they can to get here.

    Counter to the Prog meme, we welcome legal immigration here. Encouraging the illegal floatsum from failed countries is not the same thing. That is a political strategy, and is quite in violation of the oaths of office politicians made when elected.

    Pretty simple stuff really.

    Not much really. Latino's like black American's break heavily for their slave masters, and they don't even know that they're slaves to a party that keeps them down with just enough goodies to make them think they're actually doing something to help those communities. It's the biggest lie every perpetrated on an American demographic, and it's sad when you really think about it. The Latino's I know that are here legally and can actually legally vote wouldn't vote for immigration reform anyway, and in fact it's a big issue for them, mostly. The big fake by the Democrats is that they've been pretty good at bullying weak kneed RINO's into thinking this is the case, but the truth is far from that narrative.

    I say, get them out with tough a immigration stance, and see where the chips fall. Blacks and hard working legal aliens should NEVER support amnesty or reform, it will crush the lower to lower middle class even more.

    I do look for the Establishment like RNC chief Priebus to dig in its heels as they have with defeating all TEA-candidates for the Senate this year.
    Other than Cantor, this has been a miserable primary season for TEAs, with the possible exception of McDaniel in Mississippi in two weeks.
    Their is almost zero chance that the Democrat will win VA07, and their stunt effectively killed immigration reform.
    According to well-respected "expert" Larry Sabato, this congressional district is 57% GOP, hardly a slam-dunk for Brat .

    Re: Eric Cantor is Gone

    More good news! Cantor is resigning as Majority Leader. The best news is that while Republicans kill each other off this continuing fighting points again to great success for Democrats / Hillary in 2016. Why? The more you Republicans spew out your anti-immigration bill hate the more Hispanic Americans will vote for Democrats. The more Tea Party people elected to Congress increases dramatically the chances for Hillary.

    I love watching the GOP eat their own....

Or, better yet - have you come up with a plausible explanation for why alleged debris from Flight 93, showed up some 8 miles away in New Baltimore, which would have been physically impossible had the alleged Flight 93 not broken up in the sky, long before impacted Shanksville at a negative angle of attack near zero? Or, even better - have you come up with a "story" that explains how Panta 45/46 was scrambled out of Otis with a heading and altitude that was no where near Flight 175's verified altitude via the analysis of its Flight Data? Have you found out a way to explain why the 911 Omission Report contradicted itself when it said that Flight 175 had begun a rapid descent from FL290 and then collided with the second tower at 0903 hrs and 200 feet AGL?


    And, can you explain this:

    Porter Goss, former Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, was giving this interview near the Pentagon and BEFORE the Pentagon had been struck on September 11th, 2001. What you hear in the background was an explosion at ground level. What you saw were several people all wrenching their heads in the exact same direction. What you also heard in that video was the sound of high-bypass turbo fan jet engines. Those of us familiar with aviation, especially turbine aircraft, know the sound and the difference between high-bypass and low-bypass when operated at lower altitudes. These engines are typically found on larger transport category aircraft operated by our military. What you hear immediately following the larger turbofan jet engines, is the sound of low-bypass turbines in trail. Those engine types are typically found on fighter aircraft operated by our Military.

    Why were larger transport and fighter aircraft trailing the sound of a ground based explosion in the same direction of the Pentagon during the Porter Goss interview, where heads snapped around to pick-up the sound in the exact same direction that the Pentagon was standing just over their visual horizon? There were NO secondary explosions that loud anywhere near the Pentagon AFTER it was struck. There were NO aircraft in the area seconds after the Pentagon had been struck that were detected as having been super sonic.

    When you are done with that, you can then answer the question: How could Dick Cheney's "Young Man" have possibly known about inbound telemetry on an airborne vehicle that nobody on earth was supposed to know anything about? Norm Minetta, was inside the PEOC before the Pentagon was struck. Norm, is not confused about his whereabouts. In fact, Norm, has always understood exactly where he was when he heard Dick's "Young Man" feed him inbound telemetry on some kind of airborne vehicle. If Norm, got information about the scramble our of Langley, then he was most definitely inside the PEOC before the Pentagon was struck. So, how on earth was it possible for the "Young Man" to have any information at all, about Flight 77, when Flight 77 was lost to both the FAA and NEADS just before impact? This "Young Man" not only had information, he had to have been given access to detailed real-time radar information, because he called out DISTANCE measures at TIME based intervals. That kind of information cannot come from FAA Radar Projections alone.




    When you pull your head out long enough to even remotely understand the weapons (aircraft) involved in 911 sufficient to have this discussion with me intelligently and honestly, then I will engage the subject matter with you. I have time as PIC in two (2) of the aircraft involved in 911 - both the F-15 and the Boeing 757. Once upon a time, I was a check pilot on the 75. That means that FOs flew with me, before they flew passengers in a 121 operation. I know the 75. I know what it is capable of doing and I know what it is NOT capable of doing. What Flight 77 allegedly did on 911, is utterly preposterous in the hands of a neophyte who previously failed a Cessna 172 check-ride.

    Do you have any other absurd questions for me?

    Ask a simple question, get a.... long winded, convoluted diatribe. Par for the course in Trutherville.

    Moderator's Warning:
    House Majority Leader Cantor loses GOP primary to tea-party challenger[W:243:247:349]People! There are 2 in-thread warnings about being off-topic and dragging forward posts from before the warnings. It needs to stop right now. There are several fewer participants in this thread at this point and there is still moderation pending. Get back on-topic, referring ONLY to the OP or join them. Points are also a possibility.

    This is the important stuff. We can’t get lost in discrimination. We can’t get lost in B.S. We can’t get lost tearing each other down. I want to make a point here that no matter what you look like, where you come from, how you worship, who you love, how you identify, and yeah, how you run, that if you have good public policy ideas, if you are well qualified for office, bring those ideas to the table, because this is your America, too. This is our commonwealth of Virginia, too.

    In addition, losers of primaries are not eligible for ballot recognition. Write in is possible, but not likely.

    Besides, he lost by 10+%. Add to that those democrats who would not vote for Cantor, and there is no chance.
