oped: Really now John boy...I'm thinking you are over your head and your job as Speaker of the House is above your pay grade abilities...you really should retire already as you have overstayed your welcome and we the smart people are really annoyed with you! Go back to your family hardware store and manage it... that is the limit of your abilities!
John Boehner and the rest of the House Republican Leadership just unveiled their latest capitulation to Barack Obama's unlawful amnesty decree. First, they want to call a totally symbolic vote castigating Mr. Obama for his tyrannical and unconstitutional action. And then... they want to call another vote to actually fund Obama's unconstitutional amnesty decree well into 2015.
Really? ... Are they serious? ... Do they honestly think that the American people are stupid enough to believe that this capitulation and total surrender is actually a plan to stop Barack Obama's unlawful amnesty decree?
Make no mistake, this latest attempt at deception is a direct response to the massive outpouring of faxes and calls that patriotic Americans like you have been sending to Washington. They know they can't get away with this in the light of day, so they're once again attempting to trick the American people into permitting this capitulation.
And now, Boehner and company are waiting to see what kind of reaction this little maneuver will generate... If they hear little or no response to this latest deception, they'll assume that they have your consent to do Barack Obama's bidding, and we must not give him that consent. We need an avalanche of calls and faxes to Washington right now.
The Truth That No One In Washington Dares To Speak!
Why would John Boehner and GOP elites even bother to float a proposal to fund an unconstitutional, dictatorial and imperial executive decree well into next year?
Rush Limbaugh cut to the chase during his Tuesday broadcast: "What this is about is the establishment concocting an excuse where they don't have to stop Obama because they don't want to, folks. That's the only logical interpretation for all of this."
"They can't come, after all of this, and act like they are as eager for amnesty as Obama, but they are. We know it to be true."
Limbaugh went on to say: "Republicans need to swallow hard and go all-in for amnesty, not just five million, but for all of them. ... They just won a landslide election, and the intention of the people that voted for 'em was to stop this. Well, the Republican establishment apparently doesn't want to."
Now... if you're feeling discouraged by the deceptions and the trickery... DON'T. The truth of the matter is that politicians only attempt to deceive you because THEY KNOW THEY NEED YOUR CONSENT.
And when you remain silent, you give them that consent. Don't give them that consent.
The Cavalry Is Coming...
Your faxes and calls are also giving rank-and-file Republicans the courage to stand up to the elites in the GOP Leadership.
According to the Politico: "Senate conservatives are beginning to badger House leaders over their plan to fund the government and symbolically disapprove of the president's immigration action... arguing that the House needs to block funding for implementation of Obama's executive action now, not later."
And here's what some rank-and-file Republicans are saying in reference to Boehner's latest amnesty scheme:
"The Chairman of the Republican Party made a promise to America on executive amnesty: 'We can't allow it to happen and we won't let it happen… everything we can do to stop it we will.' Unfortunately, the plan now being circulated in the House fails to meet that test. ... [It] does not reject the central tenets of the President's plan: work permits, Social Security and Medicare to 5 million illegal immigrants — reducing wages, jobs and benefits for Americans. ... The President's action erases the laws Congress has passed in order to implement laws Congress has refused to pass. Now the President demands Congress fund his imperial decree and declare its own irrelevance." - Senator Jeff Sessions
"Make no mistake, sending a bill to the Senate without first making an attempt to include defund language is telling the American people that you support Obama's executive amnesty. That would be a slap in the face to the voters who sent a message last month by electing Republican majorities in Congress." -Senator David Vitter
"The major proposals I'm hearing about would effectively fund Obama's amnesty program until March. We can't fund it at all. I agree with other conservatives who have stated that the president's amnesty scheme is illegal, which is why we should defund it specifically and immediately while funding the rest of the government. This can and should be done." - Congressman-elect David Brat, the man who defeated former House Majority Leader Eric Cantor
"It's impossible for us to tell the American people that we're serious about this when we're not doing anything that is serious." Congressman Raul Labrador
