…dead in its tracks.
“Comprehensive immigration reform” is just code for amnesty. Don’t be fooled by the rhetoric.
Obama wants the amnesty to happen without closing the borders. He’s a lying scumbag.
It’s all bullshit.
…as Americans that believe in a Constitutional Republic, we may have lost this battle, but the war isn’t over until the fat lady sings. And that bitch ain’t no where to be seen.
As Conservatives, we must fight to rid the GOP of the feckless RINOs that infest the party, or we will continue to have to deal with a third party that will continue to siphon off votes from the GOP. Case in point: With 94% of the vote counted in Virginia, Obama over Romney by 13,674. Gary Johnson has 27,602. Libertarians helped Obama win this election. Romney wasn’t conservative enough to bring them into the big GOP tent and it shows.
Until the GOP gets rid of RINOs like John McCain, Mitt Romney and the like, it will continue to sound like the other guy and not offer the contrast that would show the general populace that liberalism is a death knell for any country that espouses it.
Don’t give up on America. Fight for it. Fight for it hard. I will.
On November 6, the people of the United States rejected President Barack Obama. And re-elected him to a second term in office. The same constitutional peculiarity that brought George W. Bush into office in 2000 has now returned Barack Obama to the White House. The irony is more all the more painful for Republicans–and sweeter for Democrats–since Mitt Romney won by a larger margin, and apparently won a popular majority.
The voters also re-affirmed the results of the historic Tea Party election of 2010, returning Republicans to power in the House of Representatives. And yet the voters also retained Democrats in control of the Senate, preserving the results of the anti-war wave election of 2006. The U.S. Congress is now divided between two parties whose members were elected on platforms of protest, each determined to stop the other from pursuing its policies.
In the days that follow, great efforts will be spent on explaining the results as consequences of many factors, big and small. Perhaps Obama would have lost if not for Hurricane Sandy. Perhaps Romney would have won if he had fought harder over Benghazi or pushed back against personal attacks. Perhaps the GOP is out of touch with the country’s changing mores and demographics. Perhaps Democrats have not yet reckoned with fiscal reality.
Both sides lost. The American people, in effect, handed a vote of no confidence to Washington. But it is true that Republicans, and conservatives more generally, lost more than Democrats. The presidency is more powerful than ever, and Obama will likely have the opportunity to nominate at least one additional Supreme Court justice, tipping the ideological balance of the Court in a profoundly liberal, statist direction for the next generation.
…hits $16 trillion.
When are we going to stop the hemorrhaging?
Ask most folks who holds the lion’s share of America’s $16 trillion debt and they’ll tell you China.
But they would be wrong. The correct answer is Americans. Fully two-thirds of the national debt is owed to United States investors and future retirees, through the Social Security Trust Fund and pension plans for civil service workers and military personnel. China, it turns out, holds less than 8 percent of the money our government has borrowed over the years.
“It is true that China is the largest foreign owner of our debt,” said Josh Gordon, policy director of the Concord Coalition, a Virginia-based nonprofit that advocates getting the nation’s debt under control. “But the vast majority of our debt is held by us.”
…and Congress is silent.
Congress has refused to enforce the law of the land. By allowing this usurpation of the law by a lawless president, they condone the action. Fire them all.
This lazy August morning while many Americans are on vacation blissfully detached from current events, one of President’s Obama’s most radical transformations of the American landscape takes hold. A lawless, unlegislated illegal alien amnesty becomes reality today as the United States Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS) begins to officially accept applications (no personal interview required) from almost 2 million illegal aliens seeking “deferred action.”
Americans won’t like the amnesty and they won’t like how it was done, but they’re not to blame. Only Congress has the power to act against a president who throws the constitutional system into chaos by nullifying the laws Congress has enacted and governs by imperial edicts. Congress is out of town now, but frankly, even when they were in town they were out of touch and unwilling to challenge President Obama’s usurpation of their exclusive plenary authority over immigration policy.
Today’s amnesty is the dénouement of the backdoor tactics this president has been peddling since taking office and should have been no surprise to Congress.
One of the concerns that many conservatives have had about Mitt Romney was that--for want of a better term--he lacks the balls to attack Barack Obama. We saw what happened in 2008 when John McCain refused to go after Barack Obama and we worried that Mitt Romney would be John McCain lite, and now it looks as if our concern has been justified.
Now this is excellent news! One RINO down a hole shitload more to go.

Updated at 9:50 p.m. ET: Republican foreign policy elder statesman Sen. Richard Lugar, 80, first elected to the Senate in 1976, was defeated in the Indiana primary Tuesday by state Treasurer Richard Mourdock, who was backed by conservatives ranging from the National Rifle Association to local Tea Party activists to the Washington-based fiscal conservative group the Club for Growth.
Mourdock scored a landslide victory, winning more than 60 percent of the vote with almost all precincts reporting.
