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.

Go Ted go, but we’re fighting an uphill battle on a treadmill – Especially with the House and Senate lead by Boehner and McConnell.

Senator Ted Cruz joined Megyn Kelly tonight to rail against President Obama‘s planned action on immigration. And Cruz argued Obama’s acting particularly despotic, not just because he’s taking executive action without the approval of Congress, but because he is flagrantly ignoring the message the American people sent in the midterm elections.
Cruz argued that the midterms were actually a “referendum on amnesty” and that Obama is discarding the will of the people and becoming an “unaccountable monarch.”
Cruz also pointed out that 1) Obama has said elections have consequences when they go his way, and 2) several Democrats who supported his immigration plan in the Senate were voted out. He again proposed that the Republican-held Senate should threaten to block every single Obama nominee if Obama attempts to act on his own.
From friend and GTP member Jim Sharp:
Tonight, I had the pleasure of interviewing Straw Man. Mr. Man has been the object of much criticism from President Obama and the Democratic Party. He’s been in hiding until recently, for his own safety. Now, vindicated by this latest election, he’s agreed to speak with me tonight.
ME: Good evening, Straw Man, and welcome.
You’ve endured numerous vitriolic assaults, over the years. From the classic “You want to throw granny over the cliff,” to “You want old people on social security to choose between heating and eating dog food.”
They say you don’t care about the environment; that you’re for “dirty air and dirty water.” And, of course, that you’re a “climate-change denier.”
Many say you want little children on welfare to starve. Then there’s your supposed “war on women,” your hatred for gays and minorities. And, of course, you hate puppies … the list goes on.
My question to you, sir, is how you do it? – How have you weathered these withering politics of personal destruction?
STRAW: Well, thank you, Serv. At first, I really let this stuff get to me. I got defensive – quiet and introverted. I went around mumbling to myself, asking myself, “How did it come to this?” How did someone like me – who wants everyone to live a good, productive life, to be a good citizen, to experience the blessings of liberty – come to be so misunderstood, even despised?
Nothing in my life prepared me for that. Finally, I started to realize – it’s not me, it’s THEM! THEY hate me for the very things I stand for. It’s their job to deconstruct my life. They were trying to make me feel bad. They wanted to get people to hate me. It’s a power grab. I learned not to take it personally.
Now, finally, other people are starting to see that too – my critics were SO over-the-top that people began to sympathize with me. They look in the mirror, and see me. My critics SO over-reached, and SO exposed themselves, that now I’m starting to feel safe to be seen again in public, even to speak out.
ME: You’ve been disavowed even by your supposed friends, the Republicans. Aren’t you afraid of being back-stabbed?
STRAW: I know, I know – the Republicans wouldn’t come out and defend me. Some did, here and there, but they certainly didn’t make a concerted effort. It’s not that they hate me; I think they were just afraid to say anything, for fear of being laughed at or criticized.
Some people tried to protect me – the Tea Party and such; conservatives, and some corporations. I appreciate that. But they were silenced, as much as possible, by the Obama Democrats. For some reason, his corporations were considered okay, but my corporations are “dark,” – not to be trusted.
Thing is, the Obama Democrats, they NEVER talk to me. They never even consider my real point of view! They couldn’t tell you what my real point of view is! They exaggerate and stereotype all my positions!
It’s what they have to do to make themselves feel special. Read more at the405media.com.
After all he’s said over the years, Obama would never do executive amnesty, now would he?
Watch Obama Make the Case Against Executive Amnesty

In this video clip from Tuesday’s The Kelly File, Congressman Trey Gowdy and Megyn Kelly weigh in on MIT professor and Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber’s remarks on the deceit used to pass the Affordable Care Act and what he refers to as the “stupidity” of the American public. After this latest scandal broke both Gruber and the White House tried to walk things back by saying that he was speaking off the cuff. Kelly refuted this argument by showing another video where Gruber also demonstrated his contempt for the “stupid” public. It kind of makes one wonder when the professor will run out of cuffs. Kelly then played a clip from December, 2009 where then senator, chairman of the Senate Finance Committee and strong Obamacare advocate Max Baucus referred to professor Gruber as a “credible and unbiased source.” It pains me to mention that professor, or should I say architect Gruber, was paid almost $400,000 by the White House (you and I) for his work on Obamacare.
Kelly brought on Congressman Trey Gowdy a Republican from South Carolina in the second half of the video. When asked his reaction to the Gruber affair he opened by saying: “I can’t get past the irony to get to the arrogance. The most ‘transparent’ administration since the continents shifted had to rely on artifice and deception to pass its signature piece of legislation. You can’t make that up. He had to lie to people, and then he justified it … So I can’t even get past the irony of that to get to the arrogance of him calling our fellow citizens stupid,” said Gowdy. He closed out his comments on this scandal by saying: “… So my fellow citizens have to keep in mind, fool me once, shame on you, ever fool me again, shame on us.”
Gowdy is chairman of the House Select Committee on Benghazi and Kelly did not miss this opportunity to ask him about the committee’s progress. He responded: “We have a very robust investigative plan that will kick off in December, and Megyn, I can tell you my goal was to have an investigation where witnesses who had never been talked to before felt comfortable coming forward because of the seriousness of our investigation and that is precisely what is happening. So it is not with a lot of fanfare, and there aren’t a lot of public hearings, but trust me when I tell you we are making tremendous progress.”
Look folks, we went into this with our eyes wide open (at least those of us who are still breathing). We all knew this was going to happen. But wouldn’t you rather be fighting an army of cry babies (Boehners) than an army of Harry Reids? So let’s get to work! – ADB
By Jeremy Peters, New York Times Nov. 8, 2014 (story below graphic):
WASHINGTON — As most Republicans were taking a victory lap the morning after the elections, a group of conservatives huddled anxiously in a conference room not far from Capitol Hill and agreed that now is the time for confrontation, not compromise and conciliation.
Despite Republicans’ ascension to Senate control and an expanded House majority, many conservatives from the party’s activist wing fear that congressional leaders are already being too timid with President Obama.
They do not want to hear that government shutdowns are off the table or that repealing the Affordable Care Act is impossible — two things Republican leaders have said in recent days. Read more at nytimes.com.
On the Mark Levin Show Thursday night, Levin spoke about the importance of the upcoming senatorial races because they will determine whether Harry Reid will remain as Majority Leader. He read a letter from Dr. Milton Wolf, the Reagan Conservative who was defeated by incumbent Pat Roberts in the Kansas primary.
In his letter Dr Wolf implored Kansans, and by extension all Americans, to vote Republican and to dethrone Harry Reid, so that the true Constitutional Conservatives in the Senate will have some real power. He then emphatically went on to say that after the elections, we must hold all Republicans’ feet to the fire and that he would be out in front leading this effort.

So much for free speech – You remember, the First Amendment
by Warner Todd Huston – 25 Oct 2014
As the media prepared to vacate newsrooms for the weekend, Democrats snuck in a last minute proposal that the Federal Elections Commission (FEC) be allowed to heavily regulate political content on internet sites such as Youtube, blogs, and the Drudge Report.
Obama FEC Vice Chairperson Ann M. Ravel announced late on Friday that the FEC was preparing new regulations to give itself control over videos, Internet-based political campaigns, and other content on the web. She insisted that, “A reexamination of the commission’s approach to the internet and other emerging technologies is long overdue.”
This snap decision came after the FEC deadlocked 3-3 over whether or not an anti-Obama Internet campaign in Ohio had violated FEC campaign disclosure rules. The videos were placed for free on Youtube and were not paid advertising, but they also did not disclose who made them.
Until now, videos and other political content that is not posted for a fee are unregulated by the FEC. Only paid advertising is regulated under election rules. It is this that the Democrats want to change.
“FEC Chairman Lee E. Goodman, a Republican, said if regulation extends that far, then anybody who writes a political blog, runs a politically active news site, or even a chat room could be regulated,” [bold type: mine] the Washington Examiner reported on October 24.

In this video, the Daily Surge’s Jason Mattera confronts former IRS official and current pension collector Lois Lerner, who has demonstrated that she handles targeting just fine when she holds the bow and arrows, shows that when the apple on her head – well, not so much. Watch the video which builds to a climax and read the story below.
Lois Lerner attempted to bust into a neighbor’s home uninvited, in a desperate attempt to avoid answering questions about her involvement in the targeting of conservative groups.
Jason Mattera, author of the explosive new book CRAPITALISM: Liberals Who Make Millions Swiping Your Tax Dollars, recently caught up with the disgraced former IRS official in her ritzy neighborhood outside Washington, D.C.
Mattera, who publishes the Daily Surge, asked Lerner if she had any regrets for her role in the ongoing IRS corruption case, and if she wanted to take the opportunity to give a genuine apology to conservatives for using the force of government to harass and single them out.
But, similar to her testimony before Congress where she pleaded the fifth, Lerner didn’t show any remorse, and, on a more latent level, showed her disregard for people’s privacy rights in general. In the video above, you can see Lerner fleeing from Mattera as she rushes through what appears to be a random person’s front yard. Read more at dailysurge.com.
Eric Holder’s tenure as Attorney General was fraught with controversy, race-baiting and snapping at Congress. Or, as President Obama put it, “a superb job.”
(Reuters) – Conservative author and filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza avoided prison on Tuesday when a U.S. judge sentenced him to serve eight months in a community confinement center after he pled guilty to violating campaign finance law.
D’Souza, 53, was ordered by U.S. District Judge Richard Berman in Manhattan to live in the center at the start of a five year probationary period in which he must do one day of community service a week. He must also pay a $30,000 fine and undergo weekly therapy, Berman said.
D’Souza, a frequent critic of U.S. President Barack Obama, admitted in May to illegally reimbursing two “straw donors” who donated $10,000 each to the unsuccessful 2012 U.S. Senate campaign in New York of Wendy Long, a Republican he had known since attending Dartmouth College in the early 1980s.

After declaring war on the Tea Party and often showing nothing but contempt for grassroots conservatives that powered Republicans to record gains in the 2010 midterm elections, Karl Rove whined that the GOP may not take back the Senate this year because of the lack of enthusiasm for his establishment-approved candidates.
Writing in the Wall Street Journal, Rove notes that even though Obama’s “job approval numbers are lousy, no Democrat in a competitive Senate race polls regularly above 50%, GOP enthusiasm is high, and independents are trending Republican… each passing day provides evidence as to why a GOP Senate majority is still in doubt.” Read more at breitbart.com.

Today, we celebrate the 227th anniversary of the signing of the United States Constitution, but so many people will never know it. Because many Americans never studied why our founding documents are so unique, and they never learned the importance of our Constitutional Republic.
This lack of appreciation for our Constitution is why our original system of government is hardly recognizable. Most Americans living in the 21st century fail to appreciate the superiority of the American system of government. After all, there are many “liberal democracies” in the world that are not governed by dictators or monarchs, what is so unique about our form of democracy?
But the gradual erosion of freedom in this country over the past half century, culminating with the Obama presidency presents us with an opportune moment to hearken back to our funding principles and explore the uniqueness of our Constitutional Republic as it was originally conceived.
