WASHINGTON — Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., has two dire warnings for America in an exclusive interview with WND.
* Don’t count on the House to stop amnesty.
* And, if amnesty passes it will end our constitutional republic as we know it.
Bachmann says she doesn’t want to sound alarmist, but when you boil it down, that is what is really at stake.
She says there is one solution — only a grassroots effort can stop President Obama’s plan to fundamentally transform America.
So, she is issuing a call to arms to all WND readers and all Americans, contact your representatives in Congress to stop amnesty before it is too late.
Bachmann explained, step by step, how a bill she believes conservatives should naturally oppose easily could be approved by the Republican-controlled House of Representatives.
“The Senate is going to pass a very bad bill. The House will pass what will sound like a pretty good bill. But I’m just here to tell you, it’s a Trojan horse.”
The lawmaker said the bill will say, “We’re going to secure the borders,” so all the Republicans will vote for the bill. Then the bill will go to a conference committee where it will undergo a dramatic change.
“The good guts of the Trojan horse bill will be pulled out,” she said. “The very bad amnesty provisions will be put in the bill. The bill will go to the House floor, and it won’t be Republicans that pass it.
“It’ll be Nancy Pelosi leading all the House Democrats to vote for it, and just enough Republicans will vote for the bill and you’ll have amnesty,” predicted Bachmann.
She said that’s been the strategy behind the scenes all along.
“I think the master plan of the ruling class that runs Washington, D.C., is to ram this bill through before the American people know what has hit them and before members of Congress even know what has hit them.”
Bachamnn said there is only one person who can stop the master plan and that person is “you.”
“I’m just telling WND viewers that if you sit this one out and you don’t start hitting the phone lines and email, calling and visiting your representatives now and saying, ‘No amnesty now, no amnesty ever,’ we’re going to have perpetual amnesty for illegal immigration.”
She predicted that if amnesty becomes the law “the whole political system will change.”
“This is President Obama’s number one political agenda item because he knows we will never again have a Republican president, ever, if amnesty goes into effect. We will perpetually have a progressive, liberal president, probably a Democrat, and we will probably see the House of Representatives go into Democrat hands and the Senate will stay in Democrat hands.”
The lawmaker said that would create a permanent progressive class, and the country would never return to its constitutional foundations.
“That’s what’s at risk right now. It may sound melodramatic, I don’t mean it that way, but this is that big and that important.”
Bachmann said as much harm as Obamacare is doing to the country, amnesty could be even worse.
“It could bankrupt us even faster. That’s why we need the WND audience to weigh in now and hard. Let your member of Congress know. We need to hear from you.”
She urges “a total call to arms.”
“Don’t count on politicians to stop it. They won’t,” she said.
The congresswoman said the political class in Washington, both on the right and on the left, made a decision to have what it calls immigration reform, but it really will be nothing more than amnesty and a disaster for the economy and the country.
“It’s going to lower wages, lower benefits, bankrupt the United States and take away job opportunities for our kids. This will change our nation forever and the future of our nation. And I think it could very likely mean that we will never again have an opportunity to reclaim our constitutional republic.”
Bachmann believes Americans owe more than that to their ancestors who sacrificed to give them this country, and to their children and future generations.
“We will not successfully pass the torch of liberty if we have perpetual amnesty. It won’t happen.”
That’s why she is issuing a call to arms, one more time.
“I hate to tell people once again you’ve got to rise up, but this is the most important bill we are going to deal with in the next two years, and so, if people are going to weigh in at all, now’s the time.
“The Republic is at stake.”
