Acting President Palin Destroys Gang of 8's Amnesty Bill/Calls Out Rubio/Makes Memorable Quote

In an incredible display of leadership,pure guts and deep insight Sarah palin called out the Marco Rubio for his hypocritical flip-flopping, and devastated the "Gang of Eight's amnesty/porous border surrender bill. And all in one day!

Palin is proving her dictum "you don't need to hold office to make a difference' as she uses her massive following and the unparalleled moral force behind her words to strike fear into the left and flip-flopping right in equal measure. Oh, and along the way adding to here list of, as the University of New Orleans  (LINK) has termed it, quotes which belong with the immortals.

Here is an an excerpt from Palin's attack on the amnesty bill, the calling out of Rubio and her latest quote ( "The most responsive and responsible level of government is the most local,") for the ages. Acting  president and woman of Thatcherite courage. We are privileged to be living in an age which has produced such a person.

"Just like they did with Obamacare, some in Congress intend to “Pelosi” the amnesty bill. They’ll pass it in order to find out what’s in it. And just like the unpopular, unaffordable Obamacare disaster, this pandering, rewarding-the-rule-breakers, still-no-border-security, special-interests-ridden, 24-lb disaster of a bill is not supported by informed Americans.

I am an ardent supporter of legal immigration. I’m proud that our country is so desirable that it has been a melting pot making a diverse people united as the most exceptional nation on earth for over two centuries. But I join every American with an ounce of common sense insisting that any discussion about immigration must center on a secure border. The amnesty bill before the Senate is completely toothless on border security. 
It's beyond disingenuous for anyone to claim that a vote for this bill is a vote for security. Look no further than the fact that Senator Rubio and amnesty supporters nixed Senator Thune’s amendment that required the feds to finally build part of a needed security fence before moving forward on the status of illegal immigrants who’ve already broken the law to be here. And if shooting down the border fence wasn't proof enough, they blew another chance by killing Senator Paul’s “Trust But Verify” amendment which required the completion of a fence in five years and required Congress to vote on whether the border is actually secure before furthering any immigration measures. And then they blew it yet again, nixing Senator Cornyn’s “Results” amendment, which also required border enforcement standards. Now the Senate’s pro-amnesty crowd is offering a fig leaf to security via the Corker-Hoeven Amendment, but this is really nothing more than empty promises. It’s amnesty right now and border security… eh, well, someday.  
If this bill was genuinely concerned with border security, it might include practical solutions for those states that live with the problem every single day. Pass-through grants could be given to border states to actually build a fence. The most responsive and responsible level of government is the most local, and since governors accept pass-throughs all the time, this is a workable solution. We could also free up more federal lands along the border to be privatized. The farmers and ranchers would have a clear incentive to keep their private property secure from the flow of illegal immigrants and/or other illegal activities trafficked across the border onto land they’d cultivate. There are plenty of other commonsense solutions, but this bill isn’t about fixing problems; it’s about amnesty at all costs."

‘Flip-flops like this’: Sarah Palin calls out Sen. Rubio for supporting amnesty

2046f064-d19d-45c3-86f2-c8dee8cb6036
Guess Palin and Rubio won’t be trading Christmas cards anymore.
Check it out:
Palin’s tweet links to a story from TownHall.com detailing Sen. Marco Rubio’s (D-Fla.) flip-flop over amnesty for illegal immigrants.

During a debate with opponents Rep. Kendrick Meek and Gov. Charlie Crist, candidate Rubio argued that giving illegal immigrants an “earned path to citizenship,” which Crist, Sen. John McCain and former President George W. Bush had advocated, is basically amnesty.

Rubio, who won that 2010 election, is now the leading Republican in the U.S. Congress pushing for illegal aliens to be given the earned path to citizenship that he himself insisted was “code for amnesty” only three years ago.
