Let us not forget Congressman Chris "give 'em all amnesty and keep 'em coming" Cannon of Utah, who in May 2005 said of America's patriot Congressman Tom Tancredo: "I think he ought to consider his views and decide whether they're consistent with the Republican Party." Where did Cannon deliver this rendition? It was a joint panel with Congressman Luis Gutierrez moderated by no less a Jorge Boosh-groupie than columnist Tamar Jacoby. The strategy seemed to call for Cannon and Gutierrez to demonstrate rude, crude behavior at the Latino Coalition, where such behavior is apparently welcome. Cannon felt comfortable as his buddy, President Bush, was soon to arrive.
Cannon frequently commented that we need not fear "undocumented workers" who walk around with "Windex" ready to spray windows. One has to question Cannon's comments about having no fear of undocumented workers using "Windex" spray bottles. It's obvious the many illegal aliens arrested for crimes against U. S. citizens have graduated from carrying a bottle of Windex to carrying a power-washer. Yes, these "good-hearted" undocumented workers are just here looking for a "better life." Yes, Mr. Cannon sadly your "undocumented workers" are just doing the job Americans won't do!
Cannon's good buddy Luis Guiterrez' was at the same conference and then continued the illegal alien advocate litany of "if not for the undocumented workers in this country, I'd say that this room would not have been as clean and well organized this morning." When will Louie and Chris learn that they're not undocumented workers; they're ILLEGAL ALIENS! More ad nauseum pandering by a Chicago-area congressman to keep our borders wide open, bashing Tancredo as the prime defender of America's sovereignty. After observing and hearing Louie and Chris , it's clear that their allegiance is NOT to America and Americans.
Determining the agendas of these two congressional traitors requires no more than recognizing that Chris Cannon, Louis Guiterrez and Tamar Jacoby are illegal alien advocacy propaganda mills. That Tancredo was walking into the proverbial lions' den at the Latino Coalition and faced two notorious sellouts to illegal immigration like Cannon and Gutierrez didn't faze Tom Tancredo - he's been there before and will be there again. He refused to back down before the orchestrated "Latino audience and agenda" and presented the facts to everyone, free of the emotional and demagogic harangue to which the pro-illegal alien advocates typically resort. It goes without saying that Chris and Louie don't dare allow facts to present their "open borders" agenda.
Chris Cannon repeatedly violates his congressional oath to uphold the US Constitution and US laws. Certainly by now even his puppeteering of the "open borders lobby" know that illegal aliens in the US are violating US laws. Naturally, Tom Tancredo's common-sense, law-abiding commentary went out the door and in the garbage, whereupon Chris began his monkeyshines.
It's obvious that the Latino Coalition has the lobbying ear of Chris Cannon.
The rude, crude and disrespectful behavior by Shamnesty peddler Cannon was cynicism at its best. TRUE CONSERVATIVES are still shocked by Cannon's despicable behavior! Cannon and Guieterrez repeatedly interrupted Tancredo and it was obvious from the organizers of this staged circus that Tamar Jacoby obsequiously ignored blatant rudeness by Chris and Louie that she wouldn't have allowed of Tom Tancredo.
Was the "Latino" audience aware how Cannon's congressional standing has tanked? He's actually been removed from membership on the House Immigration subcommittee after 5 (count 'em) complaints of ethics violations were filed. It seems that Cannon allowed immigration lawyers who support his campaigns to draft the AgJobs Amnesty during the 108th Congress. When the AgJobs bill required illegal alien amnesty applicants to acquire an attorney (paid for with taxpayer funds, of course), that was just too heavy a conflict of interest! 1
Can it actually be that Cannon's blatant and repeated unethical behavior was finally too much for fellow congressmembers to ignore? Or maybe the title of "Honorable" before Cannon's name was just too nauseating. For whatever reason, Cannon's name no longer appears on the House Immigration Subcommittee roster.
That Cannon has the audacity to hint that Tom Tancredo should leave the Republican Party is hypocrisy to the extreme. If the Republican Party were to begin screening its members for values and ethics, Cannon himself would be the first to get the royal boot. For Republican voters to object and protest to the party hierarchy is as futile as sending complaints to the White House. Further, the voters of Colorado are the only ones entitled to determine whether Representative Tancredo is a member of the GOP. Cannon has it backwards, it is he that doesn't belong in the GOP for his non-support of enforcing our immigration laws. Simply put, it's Cannon who must leave the party. Beware of a donkey in elephant clothing!
Cannon, Gutierrez and Jacoby are ill-mannered brats who need a course from Ms. Manners. As always, Tancredo spoke nothing more than the plain and obvious truth on the illegal immigration issue. And nothing offends an ass more than the unvarnished truth.
Chris Cannon has earned a voters' pink slip. Those of you in Cannon's District in Utah have the chance on Tuesday, 27 June 2006 to send a message to the "King of Amnesty,"
PRESS 1 FOR ENGLISH, PRESS 2 TO REMOVE CHRIS CANNON. Vote for John Jacobs who places American citizens above illegal aliens.
