RINOS Selling Out On Amnesty (Again)
"Republicans in Congress are nearly unanimous in opposing President Obama's unilateral executive action on immigration."
Uh, well, no, they're not, and that's the problem. We have an opposition party in this country that does not oppose, it crawls on its belly before an uncouth Third World despot.
"Nearly all want Congress to overturn the president's edict."
Which he would then simply ignore and do whatever the hell he wanted to do anyway, and there would be no adverse consequences for him because the RINOs are so fucking useless.
"But how to do it? Republicans have two basic options, and as the time to act nears, it appears they are preparing to choose the one more likely to fail.
"The first option is to pass a brief, simple bill that denies funding for the implementation of Obama's action, as announced last Nov. 20 and as outlined in memoranda from both the Department of Homeland Security and the White House. Such a move would be direct, unambiguous, and would focus specifically on Obama's action, which is what the controversy is about in the first place.
"The second option is to begin with a defunding measure but then add other provisions, targeting not just Obama's executive action but also a large chunk of the president's immigration policy going back five years.
"The first, simpler, option probably has the greatest likelihood of success. The second is more complex, and each additional component is likely to give some lawmaker — a few moderate Republicans or the Democrats whose votes are needed for passage in the Senate — a reason to vote against the measure."
Etcetera, etcetera, blah blah blah yadda yadda yadda.
The problem is that the RINOs have already surrendered to the tyrant on immigration. They have already accepted the principle of the Imperial Presidency wherein the dictator rules by decree.
The United States of America ended on November 20th, 2014, when a president of the United States ruled like a king and changed the nature of the country forever, and nothing was done about it, because the cowardly RINOs were afraid the left-wing blogosphere might say nasty things about them.
Or there is always the possibility that they were simply bought off.
