Obama ignores immigration laws, acting unilaterally towards amnesty... States should ignore him!

If President Obama can ignore our immigration laws...

...then shouldn't we ignore him, and demand our states turn all these illegals back across the border from whence they came?
Breitbart: A glimpse into the reality of the thousands of illegal immigrants being released into the U.S. by the Obama Administration was captured on video in a Greyhound Bus station in Laredo, Texas this weekend.

The illegal immigrants who cross as incomplete family units simply enter the U.S. illegally, turn themselves in to U.S. Border Patrol agents, are processed, and then are released with a notice to appear at a future date for court proceedings. U.S. taxpayers then fund bus tickets for the illegal immigrants to go to the U.S. city of their choosing. Approximately 95 percent of the illegal immigrants never return as promised for court proceedings, according to Hector Garza, a Border Patrol agent and spokesperson for the National Border Patrol Council (NBPC) Local 2455.

"The majority of these people crossed the border illegally and were then dropped off here at the bus station, so they could continue to their final destination, and that destination is an American city near you," said Garza. "This right here is border insecurity at its best. Our border is not patrolled, it's not being secured... our federal government is releasing thousands and thousands of illegal aliens into our communities."

That would be the lawful thing to do. But this...this is lawlessness, folks, approved by Obama's lawless executive branch at his discretion, and fully supported by the Democratic Party, who sees this as an 'opportunity'...
TheBlaze: House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi on Saturday called the recent inpouring of Central Americans across the U.S. border an “opportunity” rather than a “crisis” — and added a personal desire of hers.

“I wish I could take all those children home with me,” Pelosi said during a press conference in Brownsville, Texas, after visiting a nearby Border Patrol facility housing illegal immigrants, reported KGBT-TV in Harlingen, Texas.

“We’re all Americans in this hemisphere, North and South America.”

The Democratic representative from California said, “We will show the rest of the world how we deal with this,” KGBT said, noting she called those who’ve crossed the border refugees who must be treated with “decency.”

“We need to find the best solution to the problem,” Pelosi added, “not necessarily the fastest.”

Here are Pelosi’s remarks; her relevant comments start just before the 6-minute mark:

We all know what that opportunity is: future dependent voters.

SCOTUS: Obama, abortion clinics & unions lose, Hobby Lobby wins!

Two decision last week and two more handed down by the Supreme Court this morning have the mainstream media and the Obama administration shaken and frustrated that their leftist agenda isn't being allowed to journey full-bore into utopia. Although these decisions have been narrow in their scope, they still maintain some semblance of lawful order from what we've been used to during the length of Obama and Democratic reign...
Wednesday: The court's first-ever case involving the Constitution's recess appointments clause ended in a unanimous decision holding that Mr. Obama's appointments to the National Labor Relations Board in 2012 without Senate confirmation were illegal.

Still, the outcome was the least significant loss possible for the administration. The justices, by a 5-4 vote, rejected a sweeping lower court ruling against the administration that would have made it virtually impossible for any future president to make recess appointments.

Thursday: The Supreme Court unanimously ruled on Thursday that a Massachusetts law setting a 35-foot protest-free zone outside abortion clinics violates the First Amendment.

The government is allowed to limit speech in public spaces, so long as there is a significant interest in doing so, and as long as the limits are narrowly tailored and leave open alternative channels for speech. The Massachusetts law did not meet the latter part of those standards...
Then this morning, Hobby Lobby WON!
AP: The Supreme Court says corporations can hold religious objections that allow them to opt out of the new health law requirement that they cover contraceptives for women.

The justices' 5-4 decision Monday is the first time that the high court has ruled that profit-seeking businesses can hold religious views under federal law. And it means the Obama administration must search for a different way of providing free contraception to women who are covered under objecting companies' health insurance plans.
Specifically targeted were abortifacients lumped in with the rest of what the government under Obamacare deems as contraception. Only something like 4 of 20, Nance.

Also, this morning, the SCOTUS ruled that public sector unions can't force nonmembers to pay fees. Im with the Scoop on this one, "It’s amazing that it took the Supreme Court to decide something so fundamental as this." This was another 5-4 decision.

Did the High Court suddenly rediscover some constitutionality? The fact that many of these decisions are 5-4 says we're really just getting luckier than normal by one justice. And even when they're unanimous decisions, there are still catches. Crazy that our laws (or the administration's lawlessness) is being deemed one way or the other by a single individual, isn't it? The courts have the power to uphold or abuse on a whim, instead of ruling on a strict constitutional basis all of the time, but it appears that they've been in a more American mood than not as of late.

Levin's latest prediction might be worth noting:
Prediction: Having suffered recent losses at the Supreme Court (which, incidentally, are narrower than most are reporting), watch Obama start a smear campaign against the justices.

Mississippi: Racebaiting opposition traced back to Barbour family; legal challenge and special election could be in the running for McDaniel! (UPDATE)

"Mitch McConnell, John McCain, Karl Rove, Thad Cochran, Haley Barbour, the NRSC, et al, must answer for this. To say they were not involved in blatantly racist behavior is not good enough. They've yet to condemn this activity let alone demand that those behind it be exposed." ~ Mark Levin
Earlier today, we learned that the Cochran-Barbour plot had thickened, via NRO.
Meet what appears to be one of the keys to Thad Cochran’s black-turnout operation, Mitzi Bickers.

She is, from all appearances, something of a renaissance woman: She is not only the pastor of Atlanta’s Emmanuel Baptist Church but also a former president of the Atlanta school board, a former construction-company executive, and a Democratic staffer and political strategist with a checkered past. Last year, she left her job as a senior adviser to Atlanta mayor Kasim Reed after news surfaced that she had filed a fraudulent financial-disclosure statement.

In a bizarre turn of events, it seems that Bickers was in the middle of a bitterly contested Republican Senate primary. Two Atlanta-based entities affiliated with Bickers, The Bickers Group and the Pirouette Company, were paid thousands of dollars to make robo-calls on Senator Cochran’s behalf by a super PAC that backed Cochran in his bid for reelection. Documents filed with the Federal Election Commission show that Mississippi Conservatives, the political-action committee run by former Mississippi governor Haley Barbour’s nephew Henry, paid the groups a total of $44,000 for get-out-the-vote “phone services.”
This afternoon, the UK's Daily Mail BUSTED this flat out RACIST corruption wide open! Yep, we have to hop all the way across the pond to learn of how the GOP establishment is acting like the old DIXIECRATS!

A series of three racially charged radio ads that ran in rural Mississippi on Election Day played a role in driving black Democrats to vote in a Republican primary run-off election. MailOnline has exclusively obtained audio of the ads.

They were broadcast 48 times in a 12-hour period Tuesday on WMGO-AM radio in the town of Canton, and urged black Mississippians to cross party lines and support GOP Sen. Thad Cochran in his smash-mouth contest against tea party insurgent Chris McDaniel.

Each carried a required acknowledgement stating that it was 'paid for by Citizens for Progress.' Clerks at the office of Mississippi's secretary of state told MailOnline that no such group is registered there as a political committee.

The Federal Election Commission also lacks any registration from a group with that name.
Pretty sure that's a federal and state offense!
Politics in America's Deep South is historically a full-contact sport replete with its own tradition of dirty tricks, but the radio ads indicate a level of race-baiting that is rarely seen in twenty-first century U.S. politics.

They claimed that supporters of conservative McDaniel had connections to the Ku Klux Klan and that McDaniel had a 'racist agenda.' They also warned that black Democrats 'could lose food stamps, housing assistance, student loans, early breakfast and lunch programs and disaster assistance' if he were to become the Republican U.S. Senate nominee.

'Vote against the tea party. Vote Thad Cochran,' one ad said. 'If the tea party, with their racist ideas, win, we will be sent back to the '50s and '60s.'

MailOnline has learned that 'Citizens for Progress' is tied to a longtime Democratic political operative who was paid $44,000 to run racially explosive 'robocalls' in the same race. A political action committee founded by former Republican National Committee chair and former Republican Gov. Haley Barbour made those payments.

The calls were placed in predominantly black and Democratic regions of the state during the final days before Tuesday's runoff, according to a political operative in Mississippi.

Mitzi Bickers, an Atlanta pastor and former president of the Atlanta school board, used the same nonexistent group name – 'Citizens for Progress' – in a 2013 campaign for a local sales tax proposal.

After it was reported that Bickers filed a fraudulent financial disclosure report related to the campaign, she resigned her post as a senior adviser to Atlanta mayor Kasim Reed. The political 'super PAC' that paid her to run the robocalls is called Mississippi Conservatives, according to National Review.

Haley Barbour, the former governor, founded the PAC, which is now run by Henry Barbour, his nephew.

Henry Barbour denied any knowledge of the three radio ads, but acknowledged to MailOnline that his organization had paid Bickers for the phone call campaign.

'We hired Mitzi Bickers to do paid phones,' he said Friday via email. 'If she had something to do with radio ads, I am unaware of it and was not involved with radio ads in Canton.'

'It's time to take a stand and say no to the tea party, the call's script read. 'No to their obstruction, no to their disrespectful treatment of the first African-American president.'

Bickers did not respond to repeated phone calls seeking comment.

One of the radio ads was first surfaced online by opposition researcher Charles C. Johnson, a McDaniel supporter and tea party advocate whose Twitter feed is a one-stop shop for conservatives who claim widespread voter fraud delivered Cochran a victory from the jaws of defeat.

Johnson also first obtained a recording of the robocalls, which used some of the same language as the radio ads – including the claim that Chris McDaniel would cut funding for federal programs favored by Democrats in predominantly black regions of Mississippi.

About 61,000 more people voted in the run-off than in the original primary contest, marking the first time in 30 years that a rematch created more interest than the contest it followed. Most of that increase was seen in pockets of the deep-red state that are dominated by heavily black Democratic constituencies.

The groundswell of voter participation was largely due to a get-out-the-vote strategy that saw tens of thousands of registered Democrats crossing party lines to cast ballots for the Republican Cochran – mostly in protest votes aimed at knocking his tea party opponent out of the race.

The tactic is legal in Mississippi, as long as those protest voters didn't already cast ballots in the Democratic primary three weeks earlier.
'As those protest voters didn't already cast ballots in the Democratic primary three weeks earlier,' is key! And as the McDaniel campaign seeks this information, they're getting the run around from country clerks who are trying to keep them from checking the voter rolls (obviously Cochran supporters!)...
GWP: The Chris McDaniel campaign identified multiple Mississippi counties in which enough improper ballots were cast that a legal challenge to the outcome of the election is warranted.

This comes after 25,000-35,000 Democrat votes helped push Thad Cochran to victory over Chris McDaniel (by 6,880 votes) in the June 24 runoff.

The McDaniel campaign has already found 1,000 examples in one county of Democrats who voted in the June 3rd primary as Democrats and then crossed over into the Republican primary this week. This is illegal and their votes should not be counted.

Lindsay Krout, a volunteer working in Mississippi, was barred from reviewing voter rolls in Lafayette County Mississippi Friday morning.

Lindsay said when she went to the Lafayette County courthouse this morning and was forced to wait for an hour. Then the county clerk told her the Secretary of State’s office said the county had to redact the Social Security number and addresses from the voter rolls. The clerk said it will take until Wednesday to redact the information. And, the county will charge McDaniel supporters for the extra work.

Mississippi law states that the clerk must allow public viewing of the election documentation:

Lindsay said McDaniel supporters in Lowndes County and Lauderdale County faced similar pushback from the local officials. The clerks also said they would have to schedule the time so county officials could be present.
Multiple updates to this article have added Stone, Marshall, Quitman, Coahoma (the county I was born in, typical), Forrest and Smith counties to the list.

Back to the Daily Mail piece (oh, yeah, there's more)...

Remember that nasty race-baiting flyer that came out?
James 'Scooby Doo' Warren, a longtime Democratic political operative, told the Jackson, Mississippi Clarion-Ledger on June 17 that he was directing a 'get-out-the-vote' plan that included the robocalls.

He was working, Warren said, with Mississippi Conservatives, the same Haley Barbour-related PAC that funded Mitzi Bickers to produce the racially explosive robocalls. It's not clear whether he was involved with the radio ads.

Warren also said he was working closely with Bishop Ronnie Crudup Sr., a clergyman whose church created a separate political action committee called 'All Citizens for Mississippi.'

That group paid to produce and distribute pro-Cochran fliers in African-American neighborhoods, including one that claimed 'the tea party intends to prevent you from voting.'

A full-page ad the group ran in a black community newspaper in Mississippi stated that 'we're asking Democrats to cross over and vote in the Republican primary.

The New York Times reported that All Citizens for Mississippi didn't legally exist when that ad was run, but only filed its first report with the Federal Election Commission later.

McDaniel's campaign hasn't conceded Tuesday's election, and political observers expect him to officially challenge the results on Friday or Monday.

His supporters have flooded across the state to pore over polling-place records, identifying Cochran voters who double-dipped by casting ballots for a Democrat on June 3 and for Cochran on June 24.

Facebook pages and Twitter feeds serving as informal clearinghouses for angry tea partiers now feature claims that between 5,000 and 15,000 such voters were identified in the first 48 hours after the polls closed Tuesday evening.

If true, the result could be thrown out and a special election called in July – the third contest pitting the two Republicans against each other in barely a month.
And that's precisely what needs to happen, while simultaneously holding the GOP establishment and its operatives accountable for these despicable racebaiting tactics. #RememberMississippi!

New Low: Cochran racebaits black Democratic voters to steal Republican runoff in Mississippi (UPDATE: STOLEN!)

UPDATE: In just a matter of days, it already looks like the effort to find invalid votes and other corruption, atop the Barbour's involvement, has cast a shadow of doubt over last Tuesday's runoff...enough so to begin making the case for throwing out the bogus results and holding a special election!
TheDC: Volunteers working for tea party challenger Chris McDaniel in Mississippi say they have already found 20 percent of the invalid double-votes they need to cancel Sen. Thad Cochran’s business-funded runoff victory.

“We’re finished with Hinds County, and we’re up to 1,500” invalid votes, said Noel Fritsch, Daniel’s press aide.

That’s critical because McDaniel can force another runoff if he can find more invalid votes than Cochran’s roughly 7,000-vote margin-of-victory on June 24. Votes are invalidated if voters cast ballots in both the Democrats’ June 3 primary and the GOP’s run-off on June 24.

However, McDaniel can also force another election even if he can’t find 7,000 invalid ballots, said Fritsch.

“We don’t have to prove that we have 7,000 [invalid] votes…. all there needs to be is enough doubt about the election, and we’re confident about that,” he said.

That “cancel by doubt” strategy gives the McDaniel campaign an incentive to collect evidence about possible vote-buying and other potentially unethical behavior by Cochran’s campaign. ...

Roughly 84,000 voters cast ballots in the Democratic primary. To find 7,000 invalid votes, more than 8.5 percent of the 84,000 people who cast votes in the Democratic Primary would also have to have cast votes in the GOP runoff.

However, 19,000 absentee voters cast ballots in the GOP run-off, and many of those votes may be improper, say McDaniel’s allies.

“We haven’t gotten into them yet, but we’re confident that is where a lot of their effort was concentrated, and that’s where we’ll find a lot more ineligible votes,” Fritsch said.

More unconstitutionality from Democrats: No bluff, Obama will go it alone on immigration

And this, not only after Boehner announced the suit against Obama for not 'faithfully executing the law' (whatever you think of that), but also after Obama was just told unanimously by the Supreme Court that he couldn't act unilaterally in another area of the executive branch. Lawlessness reigns in Washington...and its name is Barack Obama.
TheHill: The Obama administration is "not bluffing" in its intent to take executive action on immigration policy if House Republicans don't act soon, top Democratic leaders warned Thursday.

President Obama has delayed any potential changes to his deportation policy to allow House GOP leaders time to bring legislation to the floor this summer. But if the Republicans don't act in July, the Democrats say, unilateral changes by Obama are inevitable.

"We're at the end of the line," Sen. Robert Menendez (D-N.J.) said Thursday during a press briefing in the Capitol. "We're not bluffing by setting a legislative deadline for them to act.

"Their first job is to govern," Menendez added, "and in the absence of governing, then you see executive actions."

Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) piled on. Noting that a year has passed since the Senate passed a sweeping immigration reform bill with broad bipartisan support, he urged House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) to bring a similar bill to the floor.

"I don't know how much more time he thinks he needs, but I hope that Speaker Boehner will speak up today," Durbin said. "And if he does not, the president will borrow the power that is needed to solve the problems of immigration."

The remarks come a day after Boehner announced his intent to push legislation allowing the House to sue Obama for what the Republicans say is a habitual inclination to overstep his constitutional authority.
Rush explains the above and says, "Some of these people need to be put on notice that there will be impeachment proceedings of some of these underlings if this kind of wanton disregard for the Constitution continues. And Obama should be put on notice too!" You up for that, GOP?

More from Rush:
"The immigration news today is over half of my show prep Stack. It’s fast and furious. It’s outrageous. We have lost control of this. And it’s now gotten to the point — you know, somebody needs to get hold of Mark Zuckerberg because Chuck-U Schumer had that press conference yesterday when he went out there and told everybody that I’m the guy killing immigration reform ’cause I keep calling it amnesty when it isn’t amnesty. And if I’m gonna keep doing that, it’s just gonna make it tougher.

Chuck-U got really frustrated today. (imitating Schumer) “You know what, to hell with it. If the Congress won’t do it, Obama should just do it on his own.” Pelosi said the same thing. The White House press spokesman, Josh Earnest, said if Congress won’t act, we will. After a nine to nothing decision they’ve gone — do you know that Obama is 0-for-12, 0-for-13? Unanimous decisions against Obama, 0-for-12, 0-for-13 at the US Supreme Court. Zuckerberg of Facebook is out calling it amnesty as he urges everybody to donate to it, contribute to it, and make it happen. He didn’t get the memo that it isn’t amnesty.

And then the kids flooding in. Pelosi is going to go down and meet the kids arriving at the border. She's gonna go to the border, she's gonna go to some of the shelters where they're being taken, and she's going to welcome them to the Democrat Party."

SHRIEK! RUSH: Pelosi Will Scare Kids At The Border As The Face Of America

Also, referencing that government contract request from back in January for Escort Services for Unaccompanied Alien Children at the border, Rush lays out Obama's brazen SHAKEDOWN of congressional Republicans...
"Now there are people in place accepting them and transporting them, in part to New York and New Jersey and who knows where ever else. So it looks like, essentially Obama is basically telling Congress, 'Go ahead. You approve amnesty, or I'm just gonna invite every person from Mexico to Argentina to El Salvador here to this country. I'm gonna shelter them, I'm gonna feed them, we're gonna house them on your tax dollar, and there isn't a damn thing you can do to stop me. There isn't a damn thing you can do to stop it.' In fact, nobody is trying to stop it. It's just the exact opposite.

And you couple this with Josh Earnest telling F. Chuck Todd, 'Look, we're not gonna wait around forever for Congress to write a law. If they don't we're just gonna go ahead and do it!' Ditto, Chuck Schumer. Ditto, Nancy Pelosi, who's down there welcoming them, greeting them. What else could you say?"

Yeah, this won't affect our economy more negatively or anything...

Nearly 3% contraction in U.S. economy...another HISTORIC milestone for Obama

Well, it was the weather or something, don't you know? I don't think those in the know are buy that...
ZeroHedge: Remember when in January 2014, Q1 GDP was expected to rise 2.6%? Well, here comes the final Q1 GDP revision and it's a doozy: at -2.9%, far below the -1.8% expected and well below the -1.0% second revision, it is an absolute disaster, and is the worst print since Q1 2009.

And while a bad GDP print was largely expected, the driver wasn't: personal consumption expenditures somehow crashed from 3.1% to just 1.0%, far below the 2.4% expected, meaning that all hope of a consumer recovery is dead. Finally, as a reminder, US GDP has never fallen more than 1.5% except during or just before an NBER-defined recession since quarterly GDP records began in 1947. Good luck department of truth propaganda machine, because even assuming 3% growth every other quarter in 2014 means 2014 GDP will be 1.5% at best!
Rush commented yesterday that perhaps the shrinking American economy should be the only news!
"Now, this just doesn’t jibe. In the first place, she’s talking about the 3% contraction of the economy in the first quarter. It didn’t happen in 2009. It’s the first time it’s happened since they started keeping such data. This is historic. There hasn’t ever been a 3% contraction. The truth of the matter is, ladies and gentlemen, we never got out of the recession. They might be able to have a formulaic way of measuring recession versus growth and depression, the number of quarters in a row where the economy doesn’t grow.

The fact of the matter is, we’re not producing the kind of jobs that lead people into the job market with vigor. They’re not the kind of jobs that lead to careers. Entrepreneurism is taking a hit. There really isn’t any significant, quality job creation going on. And it’s getting even worse because of the influx of illegals crossing the border now. There hasn’t been any serious reaction from serious economists, so this is a one-off. “The economy, I mean, you look at recent numbers, the economy is actually doing quite well right now.” The economy hasn’t been doing well in six years."

Remember too that the Obama administration changed how we measure GDP growth out of thin air! I think ZeroHedge hit that 'department of truth propaganda machine' SPOT ON!'

So, I guess we could revise another assumption: Maybe Obamacare didn't save the U.S. economy after all...

The Nuclear Option: Obama is Personally Responsible for Ripping Apart Immigrant Families

Via Breitbart:
So this is what the promise of amnesty looks like.

“Death trains” rumbling through Mexico teeming with children, headed for the U.S. border. Teenage girls raped. Unspeakable violence at the hands of ruthless coyotes, carrying out President Obama’s stunningly reckless new foreign policy.

Of course, Mr. Obama did not issue a formal edict inviting each of the tens of thousands of children pouring over the border from Mexico. He didn’t have to. His executive action legalizing underage illegals in the U.S. was all the invitation they needed. And come they did.

At this hot pace, we will have more than a quarter-million orphaned children on the border by the end of next year — each and every one the sole responsibility of Mr. Obama.

Actions have consequences, Mr. President. And executive actions have executive consequences. You are personally responsible for the harrowing condition of every one of these children. You are personally responsible for ripping apart every single one of these families.

Mr. Obama and congressional Democrats have pursued amnesty for illegals hoping for millions of indentured voters — poor new Americans they believe will feel obligated to vote for Democrats for decades to come. Yes, a sick political gambit.

But the underlying immigration and foreign policies will be devastating.

Under this kind of open-borders lunacy, America’s immigration policy is no longer about what is best for America and Americans. Under Mr. Obama, America’s immigration policy is about what is best for everybody in the world — except America.

This posture turns the Bush-Cheney foreign doctrine completely on its head. Their philosophy was that the U.S. should fight terrorists abroad so that we don’t have to fight them on American soil.

The Nobel Prize-winning Obama-Biden foreign policy is to just take the absolute worst problems from all around the world and bring them here. We can’t handle them either, but let’s just make them our problem.

And what is so amazing about it is that the very people who are hurt the worst under this policy are the various factions of the Democratic Party that put Mr. Obama and his political allies in power in the first place. Countless studies have shown that such a mass influx of poor workers will hurt mainly blacks, unions, other Hispanics and the working poor. Pretty much the only ones to benefit from amnesty will be business owners and big corporations hungry for cheap labor.

Efforts to sweep the problem under the rug have blown up in the administration’s face.

A former monastery in the heart of Obama country outside Chicago was identified as a good place to house the illegal orphans. The Chicago media went along and kept the story hush-hush until word leaked and an Illinois blog posted a story about it. After a firestorm over social media, the plan was scrapped.

Another effort met a similar demise after the administration and their Democratic allies in the Senate quietly plotted to house the illegal orphans at a shuttered school in rural Brunswick County, Virginia. More than 1,000 people showed up at a meeting to protest.

That is a pretty adamant showing for a town of fewer than 1,500 residents — and pretty scary for Democrats, considering that Mr. Obama carried Brunswick County by more than 25 percentage points in 2012.

As one resident told representatives of the federal government: “Please take your [unaccompanied alien children] and relocate them to D.C., where you can keep a very close eye on their welfare and keep them out of our backyard.”
Now why the HELL would Republicans sign on to this? Not even the Chamber of Commerce could supply enough money to keep the party from imploding after this!

Schumer, McCain ready to mow over tea party & push through amnesty (with Cochran)

Rush plays a series of soundbites based on reports to demonstrate how Washington Democrats continue to manipulate Washington Republicans to get everything they want..BUT FOR THE TEA PARTY standing in their way!
"Holy cow, folks! You don't need any more evidence than what I supplied you today to know that the Tea Party is WINNING and driving these people crazy. You are seen as the primary obstacles to them getting what they want."

"Do you believe him when he says, "You know, they should do immigration reform. They know they have to do it now. I think if they don't do it, we'll win the presidency, the House and the Senate." As though he doesn't want to? What does this mean: "I think if the Republicans don't do it, we're gonna win the presidency, the House and the Senate."

Chuck, that's exactly what you want to happen. You want to win the House, the Senate, and the White House forever. The Republicans are doing exactly what you want them to do, apparently. So why do you want the Republicans to change what they're doing and do what you want them to do if it's gonna help them win? That doesn't make any sense, Chuck. Got some degree of help with the Cochran election, the general trend the Tea Party doesn't always win.

The Tea Party did win. The Tea Party got more votes than the Republican Party got in the primary and the runoff. Anyway, I just think it's stunning to listen to Chuck Schumer sit here and talk about how much he cares about us winning the White House and the only way we can do it is to start sounding exactly like he does."
And obviously the McCains of the party think that's what they have to do, so much so that they'll even use Democrats to win a Republican primary in order to secure an incumbent that's already on board with the plan.

Related link: Chuck Schumer, John McCain talk child migrants

In an earlier segment, Rush laid out precisely what Chuck-U is up to...
"Ladies and gentlemen, let me ask you a question. If we had an issue that was going in our favor, and we thought that we had the Democrats on the verge of going over the cliff, would we try to save 'em, or would we get out of the way and let 'em take the fall? See, that's the thing. Chuck, it's a nice try, but we're not buying the notion that you're really trying to help us out here. We're not buying the idea, Chuck, that you actually want us to win elections. It just doesn't make any sense, Chuck, that you're trying to save our bacon on immigration reform.

Here's what's happening. Folks, it is crystal clear what is happening with this massive influx now of unaccompanied children, combined with the daily influx of illegal immigrants. The Democrat Party needs its permanent underclass. Do you know why? A permanent underclass of poor people and poorly educated people become people that automatically depend forever on government. They're automatic Democrat voters. This is a massive Democrat voter registration drive. And you see the pressure being brought to bear on the Republicans."
Huh, wonder how a new influx of Democratic dependents will affect, oh, say the black community in Mississippi who just helped insure it?

Of course, this Democratic Party pressure simply isn't enough to apply towards Republicans, so the head Alinskyite announced today through his newest spokes-idiot, [W]e’re not just going to sit around and wait interminably for Congress,” on immigration reform (i.e., amnesty). He's gonna seek legislation once more through the executive, in this case, DHS. So much for scaring him with that lawsuit, huh, Speaker?

RUSH: RINOs in Mississippi 'won the election and lost the party' (MS VOTER ADDENDUM!)

Yet another discouraged Mississippian calls into Rush to tell him he's not only NOT voting for Cochran in November, but he's voting for his opponent! Rush sympathized, reiterating the words of yesterday's caller with the same sentiment...
"We had a guy call here and say, 'Rush, I don't care... the Republican Party tells us 'we've gotta be loyal,' and 'we've gotta unify,' 'we've gotta join together everytime the tea party loses,' SCREW IT! Not when they play like this.' Had a guy from Mississippi say that he was gonna vote for the Democrat. And let me tell you something, I totally understand it.

What good is Thad Cochran gonna be? At some point, these people have to be cleared out. Now in voting for the Democrat, you could be maintaining Harry Reid in office as the Senate Majority Leader. It's possible. And for a lot of years, people have been using analogies like that, 'No, you've gotta stay loyal to the party, otherwise, we're never gonna get rid of Harry Reid.' At some point, it's not just Harry Reid as the problem. I totally understand.

This guy, Chris McDaniel, has been a loyal Republican all of his life, and has had this kind of smear campaign run against him by the party to whom he has been loyal all of his life. The Republican establishment, eager to have him defeated, might have had a role in ginning up all of these racial voters, the basis that the tea party is racist and so forth. It's understandable to me your attitude. You gotta clear the dead weight out of there. And if it means the Democrats hold power a little longer, so be it. But this has gotten serious to a lot of people. This kind of thing has infuriated!"
And what has this infuriation caused? It's causing the Republicans to lose their own party!
"If you take a look on the ground what happened in Mississippi on Tuesday, conservatives WON the primary. More Republicans voted for McDaniel than Cochran in the runoff. If it hadn't been for the 8 or 9 percent of the vote that was African-American [Democrat] voting for ol' Thad, Thad would not have won. The Republican Tea Party candidate would have. Yet, the RINOs are running around claiming they crushed the Tea Party, when the truth is THEY LOST THE PARTY! They won the election and they lost the party! In a Republican primary, the Republican victor needed Democrat votes to win. And in order to pull that off, the Republican majority, or the RINOs, resorted to racebaiting. Now, who wants to be part of THAT future, if that's what the future of the Republican Party is?"

ADDENDUM: Many Mississippi tea party members have not only felt betrayed by the GOP establishment, but they're infuriated to the point of sitting November out!
MississippiWatchdog: Barring a challenge by Chris McDaniel, tea party members in Mississippi will likely sit out the general election rather than vote for incumbent U.S. senator Thad Cochran. ...

The rancor in the divisive race was stoked by Cochran’s open courting of Democratic voters to cross over and vote in the runoff.

An ad played on radio stations geared toward African-Americans and robocalls to Democratic households both accused McDaniel of wanting to take away food stamps and federal aid to historically black universities in the state. The robocall was first revealed by the Washington Examiner on Wednesday. The radio ad was found by freelance journalist Charles C. Johnson.

“I will not vote for Thad Cochran,” said tea party member Joy Dixon Payne. “To do so would be the equivalent of approval for the horrendous actions of the campaign in the final three weeks. No pass and no forgiveness for painting me as a racist." ...

Mississippi tea party member Clay Vaughn said he was dissatisfied by the GOP establishment and said he’s still trying to decide on whether to sit home in November or cast a ballot for Childers.

“They betrayed us,” Vaughn said. “They’d rather go and bargain with the other side — which has no intentions of helping them in the end — than to concede to us fairly. The GOP traditionalist hierarchy consisting of (former Gov.) Haley Barbour, (Lt. Gov.) Tate Reeves, Thad Cochran, (U.S. Sen.) Roger Wicker, (Gov.) Phil Bryant and the newly acquired (Rep.) Gregg Harper are dead to me.”

If a McDaniel challenge fails, calls for a write-in campaign will not put McDaniel in the U.S. Senate. According to state law, write-in votes are only allowed in the “event of the death, resignation, withdrawal or removal” of a candidate.

Boehner 'says' he's gonna sue Obama for not 'faithfully executing the laws'

Uh huh. More political theater after the loss of Cantor and the infuriation of conservatives...or is Johnny Boy actually gonna follow through with something this time? My money's on the former over the latter...taking impeachment off the table was the tip off.

REPORTER: Are you planning to initiate a lawsuit against the Obama administration...?


REPORTER: Can you explain why that is necessary and what you hope to achieve?

BOEHNER: The Constitution makes it clear that a president’s job is to faithfully execute the laws. In my view the president has not faithfully executed the laws. We have a system of government outlined in our Constitution with the executive branch, the legislative branch, and the judicial branch. Congress has its job to do and so does the president. When there’s conflicts like this between the legislative branch and the administrative branch, it’s, in my view, our responsibility to stand up for this institution in which we serve.

REPORTER: Could this lead to an impeachment proceeding against the president?

BOEHNER: This is not about impeachment. This is about his faithfully executing the laws of our country.
Congress has already given this president enough rope to hang himself, and they've taken little action to hold the man accountable thus far. He constantly bypasses them, brazenly so, and scoffs at the judiciary, all the while iron-fistedly running his executive branch like the obedient little politburo it's become. Not to mention Congress's own transgressions (debt/deficits, immigration, pop-policy & special interest sways, etc.).

I would be truly amazed if Boehner actually means this...but I've learned not to hold my breath.

After winning MS Republican vote, McDaniel vows, 'We haven't conceded, we're going to investigate' (LEVIN ADDENDUM)

McDaniel joined Mark Levin this evening to discuss the corruption that took place in Tuesday's MS primary runoff, and expressly made it clear, "We haven’t conceded. We’re not going to concede, right now, we’re going to investigate."
MFP: Chris McDaniel won the Mississippi Republican primary. Twice. On Tuesday, he won by 25,000 votes among Republicans.

Just one problem: Through all manner of chicanery and deceit– Thad Cochran convinced 35,000 Democrats to illegally tamper in the GOP runoff...

Related link: Cochran wins, but McDaniel camp eying legal challenge

ADDENDUM: Levin UNLEASHED on Cochran, McCain, McConnell, Wicker, Barbour, Rove, Donohue and the whole of the Republican Party establishment this evening for their malicious behavior against McDaniel... and was the second influential conservative today to encourage Mississippians NOT to vote for Cochran in the general election...
On Wednesday's Mark Levin Show: Mark says that the Republican Party doesn't represent the people anymore and has no loyalty to conservatives, so why should we keep supporting it then? We used to be proud Republicans, but not anymore - not when they deliberately went to the Democrats in Mississippi to get their vote and to take out conservative Chris McDaniel. Mark says Republicans shouldn't vote for Thad Cochran in Mississippi - with a political battle cry of, "Remember Mississippi." Remember what the Establishment and the likes of Mitch McConnell and others did to conservatives. Chris McDaniel calls in and talks about the sleazy tactics that were used against him, the race baiting that was going on, and the fact that he received more Republican votes than Cochran did, but it was the Democrats that won the race for Cochran. How can we be proud of that?
Listen to Levin's excellent first hour monologue and the rest of his discussion HERE!
"I've never seen anything like this. So desperate is Mitch McConnell to be majority leader in the Senate for personal reason, because God knows he doesn't do a damn thing up there. So desperate are the incumbents in the Republican Party to hold onto office, they will do, they will say, ANYTHING. They will BECOME whatever they need to become, they believe, in order to attract votes. ... You see folks, the Mitch McConnell Republican Party used the tactics of the old South! They used the tactics of the segregationist South against conservatives, against Chris McDaniel in Mississippi! They should be ashamed of themselves, but they are SHAMELESS! Because they're power hungry, they don't stand for anything anymore."

Chris McDaniel: I was “betrayed” by GOP establishment

Folks, what happened last night is utterly destructive, not just to conservatism that's obviously feared in Washington, but to the core of the Republican Party itself...this changes everything.
MFP: Chris McDaniel, sounding genuinely hurt by the unethical and illegal tactics employed by Thad Cochran and Haley Barbour in the Mississippi GOP runoff Tuesday…

McDaniel: I am a two-term state senator, I have fought for this party my entire life, I’ve given money…I’ve done everything they’ve asked me to do– and last night, they pulled over 35,000 Democrats into a Republican primary to defeat me…we feel betrayed.

Hannity: Do you foresee any circumstance under which you would support this guy? Because I don’t think I could do it.

McDaniel: I prayed about it last night…my core principle is gonna have a hard time even looking at politics again.

Hannity: You sound like you got punched in the gut. You sound like you’ve been betrayed.

McDaniel: Sean, I was…I have fought for these people. These are my colleagues. They are my friends…I don’t understand!
But Ted Cruz has bigger fish to fry...
“I certainly congratulate my colleague, Thad,” Cruz said on Fox and Friends Wednesday morning, pointing out that the Republican establishment poured millions into the Mississippi race and only won by a thin margin. Cruz reminded the hosts that he did not endorse a candidate in the Mississippi primary, as he promised to stay out of incumbent Senate races.
As does Rand…
Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), a potential 2016 presidential contender, declined to support tea party critics of Mississippi Sen. Thad Cochran’s efforts to mobilize non-GOP voters to win the Republican nomination.

“I’m for more people voting, not less people voting,” Paul told reporters Wednesday.
Whether Cruz or Paul should or shouldn't have gotten involved in the Mississippi Republican runoff isn't really the issue, but what either statesmen should definitely be able to identify by now is the outrageous racial LIES and outright FRAUD that occurred last night by their own party to secure an incumbent. Further disappointment. (UPDATE: Cruz tells Levin on 7/7 that "What happened in Mississippi was appalling," that what the DC machine did was 'unprincipled' and 'wrong,' and that the Mississippi race needs to be "vigorously investigated and anyone involved in criminal conduct should be prosecuted.")

ADDENDUM I: When even Sean Hannity is disgusted enough to disuade conservatives in Mississippi from rewarding Cochran with a seventh term, that tells you how obvious it is that we need to THROW THESE BUMS OUT!
MFP: The electoral shenanigans employed by the victorious Cochran campaign in the Mississippi Republican runoff were too much for even GOP establishment spokesman Sean Hannity– who urged listeners not to reward Thad Cochran’s “disgusting” tactics by voting for him in the general election…
To literally encourage people to join into this primary scheme is so despicable…if I was in Mississippi, I would not, and could not in good conscience, vote for Thad Cochran after the way this campaign was run.

I know many of you are gonna say, ‘but Hannity, that means we put the seat at risk for a Democrat’.

Well what is Thad Cochran? He ran as a Democrat. He ran as somebody who hates the Tea Party. He ran as somebody who hates conservatives…I would not support this man!
ADDENDUM II: On Thursday, Karl Rove wrote an WSJ op-ed, bragging about the Cochran strategy, without any mention of the racial chicanery. Utter silence. Jeffrey Lord calls him out...
AmericanSpectator: This is amazing.

[Yesterday] morning in the Wall Street Journal, former Bush aide Karl Rove writes a column [saying] Cochran won because of “a strategy” that “aimed to…bring out Mississippians, including Democrats, who had not voted in either party's primary and thus could vote in the runoff.” If that’s all this were, the Cochran victory might go down better. But, of course, that’s not all that went on here.

Incredibly, Karl Rove has ignored the blatantly obvious chicanery that is the subject of discussion across the conservative media. To wit, as mentioned in my column nearby, the “strategy” to get Democrats to vote for Cochran was not some uplifting, Reagan-style vision of a city on a hill. Bush-style compassionate conservatism this was not. The bald fact here is that fliers and robocalls appealing to the worst racist instincts imaginable were used to push Cochran over the top. Put another way, these campaign materials targeted conservative Republicans with the absolute worst line of leftist bilge: that the Republican Party is racist.

And what does Mr. Rove have to say about this? Is there a condemnation? A demand for an investigation by the GOP as to who paid for this? Who authorized it?

Mr. Rove, shamefully, says nothing.

Not good. Not good at all.
There's also another problem in there that Rove blatantly misstates (as does most of the lib media, Dems and RINO operatives collectively). It's extremely likely that Democrats DID vote in the Democratic Party's primary (over 75,000 of them) and then illegally crossed over to skew the Republican runoff.

Cochran wins, but McDaniel camp eying legal challenge

Yes, DO IT!
Breitbart: Sen. Thad Cochran (R-MS) survived the most intense challenge he’s ever faced in his 41-year political career, winning a runoff against conservative state Sen. Chris McDaniel.

The Associated Press called the race for Cochran, who is up 6,880 votes with 99.9 percent of precincts reporting.

A source close to McDaniel told Breitbart News that he is considering legal challenges over ballots. Democrats who voted for Cochran on Tuesday but voted three weeks ago in the Democratic primary in the state were not allowed to vote in Tuesday’s election.

Election results indicate Cochran's late appeal to Democratic voters paid off, with the incumbent senator picking up sizable vote totals in precincts with heavily black populations. Partisanship in Mississippi is largely polarized on racial lines, and Cochran allies paid key Democratic operatives to help turn out the vote. ...

Additionally, allegations flew that Cochran allies were using “walking around money” to incentivize Democrats to the polls.

Democratic Party chairman Rickey Cole, for instance, said Cochran operatives were paying people in the black community to donate to Cochran.
Mississippi voter statutes specify whatever primary you vote in is by law to reflect your intended vote in the general. That's why the Democratic Party chairman of the state is actually encouraging the McDaniel camp to challenge the phony Cochran win! In addition, voter statutes state that you can only vote in the same runoff as the primary that you previously voted in (i.e., Democratic primary --> Democratic runoff; Republican primary --> Republican runoff; independents choose either, but stick with matching primary/runoff). Those who voted in the Democratic primary on June 3rd, then voted in the Republican runoff last night, committed ILLEGAL VOTER FRAUD! That's what the McDaniel camp MUST CHALLENGE for either a valid recount or a new election!
