GOP CRAFTS PLAN TO WRECK THE COUNTRY, LOSE VOTERS

by ANN COULTER

As House Republicans prepare to sell out the country on immigration this week, Phyllis Schlafly has produced a stunning report on how immigration is changing the country. The report is still embargoed, but someone slipped me a copy, and it’s too important to wait.

Leave aside the harm cheap labor being dumped on the country does to the millions of unemployed Americans. What does it mean for the Republican Party?

Citing surveys from the Pew Research Center, the Pew Hispanic Center, Gallup, NBC News, Harris polling, the Annenberg Policy Center, Latino Decisions, the Center for Immigration Studies and the Hudson Institute, Schlafly’s report overwhelmingly demonstrates that merely continuing our current immigration policies spells doom for the Republican Party.

Immigrants — all immigrants — have always been the bulwark of the Democratic Party. For one thing, recent arrivals tend to be poor and in need of government assistance. Also, they’re coming from societies that are far more left-wing than our own. History shows that, rather than fleeing those policies, they bring their cultures with them. (Look at what New Yorkers did to Vermont.)

This is not a secret. For at least a century, there’s never been a period when a majority of immigrants weren’t Democrats.

At the current accelerated rate of immigration — 1.1 million new immigrants every year — Republicans will be a fringe party in about a decade.

Thanks to endless polling, we have a pretty good idea of what most immigrants believe.

According to a Harris poll, 81 percent of native-born citizens think the schools should teach students to be proud of being American. Only 50 percent of naturalized U.S. citizens do.

While 67 percent of native-born Americans believe our Constitution is a higher legal authority than international law, only 37 percent of naturalized citizens agree.

No wonder they vote 2-1 for the Democrats.

The two largest immigrant groups, Hispanics and Asians, have little in common economically, culturally or historically. But they both overwhelmingly support big government, Obamacare, affirmative action and gun control.

According the 2012 National Asian American Survey, as well as a Kaiser Foundation poll, only 40 percent of the general public holds a favorable opinion of Obamacare, 42 percent unfavorable. Meanwhile, 51 percent of Asians have a favorable opinion of Obamacare, 18 percent an unfavorable one. Even Koreans support Obamacare by 57 percent to 17 percent.

Overall, 69 percent of immigrants like Obamacare, according to a 2010 Cooperative Congressional Election Study.

That same survey showed that only 35 percent of native-born Americans support affirmative action, compared to 58 percent of immigrants, including — amazingly — 64 percent of Asians (suggesting they may not be as smart as everyone thinks).

Also surprising, a Pew Research Center poll of all Hispanics, immigrant and citizen alike, found that Hispanics take a dimmer view of capitalism than even people who describe themselves as “liberal Democrats.” While 47 percent of self-described “liberal Democrats” hold a negative view of capitalism, 55 percent of Hispanics do.

Pew also found that only 27 percent of Hispanics support gun rights, compared to 57 percent of non-Hispanic whites. According to Latino Decisions, large majorities of Hispanics favor a national database of gun owners, limiting the capacity of magazines and a ban on semiautomatic weapons.

Seventy-five percent of Hispanic immigrants and 55 percent of Asian immigrants support bigger government — also according to Pew. Even after three generations in America, Hispanics still support bigger government 55 percent to 36 percent, compared to the general public, which opposes bigger government 48 percent to 41 percent.

How are Republicans going to square that circle? It’s not their position on amnesty that immigrants don’t like; it’s Republicans’ support for small government, gun rights, patriotism, the Constitution and capitalism.

Reading these statistics, does anyone wonder why Democrats think vastly increasing immigration should be the nation’s No. 1 priority?

It would be one thing if the people with these views already lived here. Republicans would have no right to say, “You can’t vote.” But why on Earth are they bringing in people sworn to their political destruction?

Republicans have no obligation to assist the Democrats as they change the country in a way that favors them electorally, particularly when it does great harm to the people already here.

Yes, it’s great for the most powerful Americans to have lots of cheap, unskilled labor. Immigration definitely solves the rich’s “servant problem.”

(Approximately 5 million times a day, MSNBC expresses bewilderment that any Republicans oppose amnesty when it’s supported by the Chamber of Commerce. Wow! So even people who profit by flooding the country with cheap labor are in favor of flooding the country with cheap labor!)

It’s terrific for ethnic lobbyists whose political clout will skyrocket the more foreign-born Americans we have.

And it’s fantastic for the Democrats, who are well on their way to a permanent majority, so they can completely destroy the last remnants of what was once known as “the land of the free.”

The only ones opposed to our current immigration policies are the people.

But are they going to give John Boehner a job when he’s no longer House speaker, as some big business lobbyist will?

Will they help Marco Rubio run for president on the claim that, as a Cuban, he can appeal to Hispanics? (Fat chance.)

Will they bundle contributions for Eric Cantor’s re-election, as well-heeled donors will?

Will they be enough to re-elect Kevin McCarthy to Congress so he can keep his gold-plated government health insurance?

Will they be the ones writing Darrell Issa’s flattering New York Times obituary?

Sorry, Americans. You lose.

NFL's Vikings reinstate Peterson after child abuse charge (Reuters)
Adrian Peterson, a marquee National Football League running back facing charges of child abuse for injuries he caused when disciplining his son, was reinstated by the Minnesota Vikings on Monday. Peterson was held out of the Vikings' game on Sunday, a 30-7 loss to the New England Patriots, following his indictment last week in Texas for negligent injury to his 4-year-old son, the latest domestic violence case to rock the NFL. "Based on the extensive information we have right now, and what we know about Adrian not only as a person but what he has also done for this community, we believe he deserves to play while the legal process plays out," Vikings general manager Rick Spielman told a news conference.

Union expects to file Rice appeal Tuesday (The Associated Press)
NEW YORK (AP) -- The players' union on Tuesday plans to appeal the indefinite suspension the NFL handed to Ray Rice last week.

Panthers unsure if Hardy will play vs. Steelers (The Associated Press)
Panthers coach Ron Rivera isn't sure if Greg Hardy will play Sunday night against the Pittsburgh Steelers. He added that Hardy will continue to practice and attend team meetings, but the coach won't make a decision on when Hardy plays until later this week. The Panthers plan to continue gathering information in what Rivera said is ''a very fluid situation.'' Hardy was convicted July 15 of assault on a female and communicating threats after the victim claimed he threw her down on a bed of guns and tossed her into the shower. Rivera said Panthers owner Jerry Richardson was involved in the Hardy discussion and the team received some input from the league, but it was his decision to bench him.

Jets OC takes blame for timeout that negated TD (The Associated Press)
Marty Mornhinweg didn't like what he saw on the field, so he frantically tried to get Rex Ryan's attention to call for a timeout. Mornhinweg took full blame for the timeout call that negated a tying touchdown against the Green Bay Packers on Sunday. The Jets had fourth-and-4 from the Packers 36 with just over 5 minutes remaining and were trailing 31-24. The play clock had dropped under 15 seconds, shutting off the coach-to-quarterback radio connection - per NFL rules - and Mornhinweg couldn't communicate with Geno Smith anymore.

Vikings bring back Peterson despite abuse charge (The Associated Press)
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) -- The Minnesota Vikings have seen the details. They have seen photos of the injuries that Adrian Peterson's 4-year-old son suffered at the hands of the star running back. They have a history of punishing players who have run into trouble with the law.

Ravens can't 'get away' from Rice saga (The Associated Press)
A three-day break wasn't enough to separate the Baltimore Ravens from the Ray Rice saga, and coach John Harbaugh expects the suspended running back and domestic violence to remain topics the team and the NFL will be addressing the foreseeable future. ''We're probably not going to get away from it and probably rightly so,'' Harbaugh said Monday. Hopefully it impacts society in a good way going forward.'' Still, the Ravens tried to steer the conversation toward football. Before Harbaugh addressed the media on Monday, team spokesman Kevin Byrne told reporters: ''We're trying to move on, at least publicly, now that there's an independent investigation on the Ray Rice situation.

Program that accepted Rice rare in domestic cases (The Associated Press)
The offender-rehabilitation program former Baltimore Raven Ray Rice was allowed into after knocking his fiancee unconscious in an Atlantic City elevator is rarely used in domestic assault cases - but whether that means he got special treatment because of his stardom remains up in the air, depending on whom you ask. Only 70 of the more than 15,000 domestic violence assault cases adjudicated from 2010 to 2013 in New Jersey's Superior Court were admitted into the pretrial intervention program, according to records obtained by The Associated Press. Video released by TMZ Sports last week shows Rice punching Janay Rice, at the time his fiancee and now his wife, in the face and knocking her unconscious Feb. 15 at Revel Casino Hotel. Advocates for victims of domestic violence have accused investigators of being too lenient on Rice, and lawmakers have called for a review.

Domestic violence experts added as NFL advisers (The Associated Press)
Three experts in domestic violence will serve as consultants to the NFL. Commissioner Roger Goodell sent a memo to teams Monday announcing that Lisa Friel, Jane Randel and Rita Smith will work as ''senior advisers.'' They will ''help lead and shape the NFL's policies and programs relating to domestic violence and sexual assault,'' he wrote. Goodell has been under heavy criticism for his handling of the domestic abuse case involving star running back Ray Rice.

Reinstated Peterson says 'I'm not a child abuser' (AFP)
Minneapolis (AFP) - Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson, reinstated Monday by the NFL team, declared he was not a child abuser despite charges of injuring his four-year-old son with blows from a switch.
