NATIONAL HARBOR, Maryland–Here at CPAC, the speaker lineup got shuffled around to accommodate Sen. Rand Paul’s voting schedule in the Senate. That led to a big delay for a large group of young Jeb Bush supporters who arrived in time to boost their candidate’s CPAC speech.
Instead of Jeb Bush, who was expected to speak at 1:40 this afternoon, supporters found Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson on stage.
As the delay continued, the influx of Bush supporters wearing red “Jeb!” stickers thumbed through their smart phones and waited patiently in the ballroom aisles for their candidate. Many of the ballroom chairs weren’t filled, but they appeared willing to stay standing in groups. Continue reading at breitbart.com.
Here’s Jeb’s full speech if you can sit through it.
It looks like those Americans-in-Waiting will have to wait a little longer.*
U.S. District Judge Andrew Hanen has denied the Justice Department’s request to stay his injunction against Obama’s executive action on immigration.
The Obama administration submitted a request Monday for Judge Hanen to lift his temporary ban on the executive amnesty program by Wednesday, hoping that Hanen would allow the program to go forward while the case worked its way through court. Read more at truthrevolt.org.
And what about all that talk of the Constitution and our Founding Fathers back in 2010 Sen. (then Mr.) Rubio?
By Matthew Boyle
UPDATE: Rubio’s spokesman Alex Conant reached out to Breitbart News after the publication of this article to clarify the senator’s position.
“Senator Rubio does not support shutting down DHS,” Conant said in a statement. “But he does support stopping the new executive order on immigration and is willing to support any approach we could get passed to stop it. But the President had made clear he will veto any effort to stop his unconstitutional order. And Senate Democrats have made clear they will not even end their filibuster on the DHS funding bill. The result will be a DHS shutdown which would be harmful to our national security. The answer is not for Republicans to surrender and pass a clean funding bill. The answer is for the President and Senate Democrats to abandon the executive order and cooperate in passing a series of immigration bills beginning with real border security.”
Conant also provided the entire transcript of Rubio’s remarks, which includes the exact quote from above and means the meaning of this story and the context in which it was put are accurate. Read the rest of this article at breitbart.com.

Published on Jan 28, 2015 by Senator Jeff Sessions
Senator Sessions, Chairman of the Senate Immigration Subcommittee, questioned Attorney General Nominee Loretta Lynch at today’s Judiciary hearing to consider her nomination. Sessions asked Lynch about the President’s decision to bypass Congress to order a sweeping amnesty, and how this action undermined the rights of disadvantaged American workers.
In addition to suspending enforcement for nearly all of the 12 million individuals unlawfully present in the United States, President Obama issued an executive decree on November 20th, 2014, extending work permits, Social Security, Medicare, tax credits, and government identification to 5 million illegal immigrants and illegal visa violators. This would allow illegal immigrants to take any job in America, regardless of chronic high unemployment for Americans—including a 10.4 percent unemployment rate for African-American workers. Peter Kirsanow, a member of the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights, explained—contra AG Holder’s “breathtaking” contention that amnesty was a civil right—that unlawful amnesty for illegal immigrants violated the rights of U.S. citizens to the full protection of their laws, including those laws passed by Congress to protect their jobs and wages from illegal competition. The President’s executive edict (an edict he said previously only an Emperor would deign to issue) voids Americans’ legal protections in law, supplanting them with a new executive policy that Congress and voters have rejected, a policy which forces unemployed Americans to compete against a large and growing illegal workforce.
26 Republicans Vote Against Blackburn Amendment To Defund Obama’s Executive Amnesty for Illegal Aliens
A whopping 26 Republicans joined the Democrats in Congress to vote against an amendment to the DHS funding bill sponsored by Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN). That amendment aims to block funds for President Obama’s 2012 Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), largely believed to be the root cause of the border crisis last summer.
Rep. Renee Ellmers (R-NC) was the first Republican to break ranks. “Ellmers is [the] first GOP no vote,” Politico’s Seung Min Kim Tweeted as the vote began.
The other Republicans who voted against the measure, which passed, are: Reps. Mark Amodei (R-NV), Mike Coffman (R-CO), Ryan Costello (R-PA), Carlos Curbelo (R-FL), Jeff Denham (R-CA), Charlie Dent (R-PA), Mario Diaz-Balart (R-FL), Bob Dold (R-IL), Chris Gibson (R-NY), Richard Hanna (R-NY), Joe Heck (R-NV), Crescent Hardy (R-NV), John Katko (R-NY), Tom MacArthur (R-NJ), Peter King (R-NY), Adam Kinzinger (R-IL), Frank LoBiondo (R-NJ), Martha McSally (R-AZ), Pat Meehan (R-PA), Devin Nunes (R-CA), Dave Reichert (R-WA), Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL), Chris Smith (R-NJ), Fred Upton (R-MI), and David Valadao (R-CA).

By the way, Representative Ellmers, and I use the word representative loosely, has a long history of ignoring and being combative and argumentative towards her constituents. Watch the short videos on page two of the following link, and you will see for yourself: pjmedia.com.
The “most offensive headline against undocumented immigrants ever.”
“I am not afraid of retaliation. I have no kids, no wife, no car, no mortgage. It surely is a bit dramatic but I’d rather die on my feet, than live on my knees.” – Stephane (Charb) Charbonnier, publisher and editor of Charlie Hedbo.
Will we ever learn? Obama White House can’t admit Paris attacks ‘Islamic terrorism’
By Steven Emerson
They shouted in Arabic “Allahu Akbar” (Allah is Greatest) and “We are avenging the Prophet Mohammed” as they sprayed their victims with hundreds of bullets from their semi-automatic weapons.
Their “victims” were the top editorial cartoonists of the satirical Charlie Hebdo magazine, who had dared to practice their right of free speech. Their offense? Publishing cartoons deemed “offensive” by Muslim leaders around the world. The perpetrators? Islamic terrorists.
Yet in the immediate hours after the murders in Paris, the response from western leaders was scurrilously predictable in their refusal to describe the attack as an “Islamic terrorist attack.” Continue reading and watch video on foxnews.com.
On the air last night, fiery radio talk show host, Constitutional scholar and life-long Republican, Mark Levin, said that after the way Republicans have acted since their November 4th election victory, that he is “one inch away from leaving the Republican Party.” Many people do not know that Mr. Levin served in the entire eight years of the Reagan administration.
Listen to what Mark had to say last night here.
Gohmert: Leadership Wouldn’t Work With Conservatives on Cromnibus
Representative Louie Gohmert (R-TX) said that conservatives in the House heard “not one word” from House GOP leadership on compromises to make changes to the cromnibus in order to get conservatives to vote for it even though “we were willing to work with them to compromise” on Thursday’s “Hannity” on the Fox News Channel.

The Nuclear Option – by Charles Hurt – Dec. 10, 2015
Call it the mysterious case of the Incredible Shrinking GOP.
Barely one month ago, the party sailed to victory in one of the biggest rout election waves of the past century. They ran the board and took control of the U.S. Senate. They grew to historic levels in the U.S. House. The Democratic Party was left in tatters in state, local, and governor races across the country.
But today, just a few weeks later, before GOPers even take hold of their new reins of power, the party is crying poverty. They are stricken with paralysis. House Speaker John A. Boehner, known for his weeping, begs powerlessness.
“Frankly, we have limited options and limited abilities to deal with it directly,” Mr. Boehner said last week when asked about President Obama’s unconstitutional executive action to grant amnesty to millions of illegal aliens presently living illegally in the U.S.
“Limited options?” “Limited abilities?” We have an unbridled madman in the White House right now taking a machete to the U.S. Constitution and the leader of the opposition party that was just thrust to power in a historic rejection of the president and his cleptocratic policies is now talking about “limited” options and abilities?
Funny, I don’t recall a single Republican running in a single race this year on a campaign that Republicans in Congress have only “limited” options and abilities to stop Mr. Obama. No, in fact, every single one of them ran their entire campaigns on the singular promise that we have to vote for Republicans so they could stop Mr. Obama. And Americans voted. [Bold type, mine] Continue reading at breitbart.com.
Watch ’till the end. It keeps getting better!
Dec.10 2014 RSS News: Troops are on heightened alert after the Democrats’ decision to release a report on the now-defunct enhanced interrogation technique program that was used in the wake of 9/11.
Megyn Kelly said tonight that President Barack Obama is defending that decision, demanding accountability and transparency, “to which some responded, ‘Preacher, heal thyself.’”
“It was important for us […] to recognize that part of what sets us apart is when we do something wrong, we acknowledge it,” Obama said.
White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest explained that the report demonstrates a commitment to transparency and accountability.
Megyn Kelly said, “When we in America do something wrong, we acknowledge it. We are transparent, accountable. We fess up so we can claim our moral authority, like when the president immediately came clean about his ‘if you like your plan, you can keep your plan’ promise? When he sold us the ObamaCare mandate by denying that it was actually a tax, as he went before the Supreme Court to say exactly the opposite? When his spokesman told us the White House did not alter the Benghazi talking points? When James Clapper lied about spying on all Americans? When Eric Holder misled about targeting journalists, like James Rosen? And then there’s the president’s 180 on immigration.”
Obama was pressed yesterday on his ‘180’ by Univision’s Jorge Ramos, and Obama “sidestepped” the questions, Kelly said.
Well, they did!
Dems’ final insult: Landrieu crushed
Cassidy trounces incumbent with Republicans set to control 54 Senate seats in the next Congress.
By James Hohmann 12/6/14 9:49 PM EST Updated 12/7/14 11:57 AM EST
In the final insult of a devastating 2014 election for Democrats, Sen. Mary Landrieu, the party’s last remaining statewide officeholder from the Deep South, was trounced Saturday in the head-to-head Louisiana Senate runoff election.
Republican Bill Cassidy’s resounding victory is the ninth Senate seat picked up by the GOP in this year’s elections, three more than the party needed to take control of the chamber. With nearly all the ballots counted, Cassidy led Landrieu by 14 points, 57 percent to 43 percent. Read more at politico.com.
