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.

After six years of putting up with his eldest son actively working with those crazy racist white folks in the Tea Party against the first black president, my 86-year-old black dad has finally begun to understand why.
A lifelong Democrat, Dad contributed to the GOP shocking victory in Maryland by voting Republican in the 2014 midterm. It has taken me six years to convince Dad that conservatism is much better for everyone than liberalism. Dad is old-school, with basic beliefs. Democrats are for the working-class little guy. Republicans are for the rich. Oh, and Republicans are also racists.
So you can imagine the challenges I faced trying to re-educate him. Dad believed that the Tea Party was racist because he heard it on CNN. I said, “Dad, I travel the country on the Tea Party Express tour bus. And they allow me to sit up front. However, I prefer riding in the back, because there is a large TV back there, and I can watch all the football games.” Dad chuckled. Continue teading at americanthinker.com.
Leaving aside passages in which he quoted a Chicago pub owner and a letter from a citizen from Georgia, President Barack Obama used the first person singular—including the pronouns “I” and “me” and the adjective “my”—91 times in a speech he delivered in Chicago Tuesday to explain his unilateral action on immigration.
But as often as Obama used “I,” “me” and “my” in Chicago this week, it was no match for the speech he delivered in Austin, Texas, on July 10, when he used the first person singular 199 times.

The great thing about Obama’s TelePrompter is that when he stops reading from it, he slips up and tells the truth.
The White House has argued that President Obama’s executive amnesty order last week was made well within the existing law. But in remarks in Chicago tonight, President Obama went off script and admitted that in fact he unilaterally made changes to the law.
President Obama made the admission after getting heckled for several minutes by immigration protesters.

Presidente Barack Obama has followed through with this threat of signing a sweeping executive amnesty order for illegal immigrants with his primetime TV announcement that he would sign the orders on Friday in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Obama’s move was purely political, as he and the Democrats continue to reel over their 2014 midterm election debacle, knowing that jamming through amnesty for illegal immigration would only serve set up Republicans as anti-Hispanic in the eyes of current, and potentially future Hispanic voters, if and when they decided to challenge the President on his executive amnesty orders.
During his address, Obama mentioned that he would push forward with his executive orders because the House of Representatives failed to, or refused to take up and allow a “simple vote” on the controversial and pro-illegal immigration “Gang of 8″ Senate bill cosponsored by Florida Senator Marco Rubio, which Obama said was a fair “compromise.”

Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn) revealed on Saturday that Republican leadership, led by Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-Oh), has no intention of resisting President Obama’s executive amnesty that he ordered on Thursday.
