Josh Bernstein, writing for the Examiner, does a fine job of pulling back the curtain on the underhanded dealings being engaged in by the amnesty supporting senators who refer to themselves as the “Gang of Eight.”
With two slippery Arizona RINOs — John McCain and his ardent sycophant Jeff Flake — leading the left-leaning “bi-partisan” clique, those who follow their hypocrisy will not be surprised at their shooting down of Sen. John Thune’s (R-SD) amendment which simply called for the completion and funding of a 700-mile stretch of double tiered fencing along our southern border. Most of the senators voting 54-39 to reject the amendment were Democrats. Five Republicans, including all four members of the so called “Gang of Eight” voted with the Democrats. That group of colluders includes McCain and Flake, along with Lindsey Graham and Marco Rubio — blithely tossing his 2016 presidential aspirations to the winds in support of amnesty.
The only GOP Senator not part of the “Gang of Eight” also voting against the Thune amendment was Lisa Murkowski (AK) a reliable supporter of liberal positions.
In need of a good belly laugh? John McCain provides it with this explanation of why he voted against the measure, “We should leave that issue (the border fence) to the best judgment of the Border Patrol.” This is the same John McCain who in a tough primary challenge in 2010 actually ran a campaign ad in which he emphatically declared, “Complete the danged fence!” Here’s a memory refresher:
For America to remain a free country it is imperative to our sovereignty to protect our national borders. Article IV, section 4 of the United States Constitution clearly defines the issue. “The United States shall guarantee to every state in this union a republican form of government, and shall protect each of them against invasion; and on application of the legislature, or of the executive (when the legislature cannot be convened) against domestic violence.”
