'The Great One' Mark Levin RIPS into the Washington Ruling Class at CPAC

Here’s one of the greatest defenders of liberty in our country today, Mark Levin, at CPAC this morning. He never pulls any punches, and this speech is no exception! ~ TRS
Where some walked out on Jeb yesterday (not nearly enough, IMHO; more should've taken Ted and Phil's speeches to heart!), they flocked to Levin early Saturday morning...
"Now, we are here today not because we're Republicans; in fact, many of us are here today in spite of that fact. We are here today because we're losing our republic, and we are the sunshine patriots who intend to secure it."

"Let me say this to you, Mr. Obama: You may have a pen, and you may have a phone, no doubt an Obama phone, but we have the Constitution of the United States! And WE, not you, WE own that Constitution, WE own this country, and you, Mr. Obama, do not have any legitimate authority to fundamentally transform what does not belong to you!"
Weaving throughout our national heritage, Levin made mention of the Continental Congress's adoption of the Declaration of Independence six months before the Battle of Trenton and the list of grievances against the king therein, reading in part, "The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world." Then to Levin's purpose:
"So let me, today, submit to a candid world the short list of repeated injuries and usurpations COMMITTED BY THIS PRESIDENT, the would-be king, Barack Obama!"
Much of what Levin listed echoed his very frank assessment from Thursday's program, including this addition:
"And may I add here, we are not a nation of immigrants, we are a nation of citizens. A nation of immigrants who become citizens. But we are a nation of citizens, and I am sick and tired of the American citizen being demeaned and treated as a second-class citizen, while anyone who crosses the border is treated as the most virtuous human being on the face of the earth!"
In addition to all the domestic grievances listed, Levin also went on to mention Obama's deterioration of our military and his failure to confront Islamic Nazism, communist China and fascist Russia, while undermining our friend, Israel...ending that list, saying, "Now there's a lot more, but my time is limited, and I need a few minutes for the Republicans."

Freedom's Lighthouse has done a superb job of listing out all of these grievances against Obama.

"At the end of the Declaration of Independence, they wrote, 'In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury.' And we have voted and voted for change, to change him, to change what's going on in Washington. But unlike our Founders, who had no alternatives, we do. But I'd be lying to you if I didn't tell you the hour is late; it's very late, and the republic is slipping away. I'm not running for office; I don't have to put smiley faces on tyranny.

In mentioning CPAC's founding, promoting Reagan's '73 campaign, Mark discussed how Reagan was rejected by the GOP establishment, making mention of how none of the present Republican leadership ever worked under Reagan, and you just knew he'd eventually get around to addressing the elephant, actually RINO, in yesterday's room:
"In fact, Reagan was opposed by a prominent family, who seeks to occupy the White House for a third time. The only dynasty I like is the Duck Dynasty!"
Levin says Reagan argued in front of CPAC for a NEW Republican Party, and for acknowledging that the establishment had lost its way, they were as infuriated with him as they now are with us.
"In fact, George Will referred to the conservatives who backed Ronald Reagan as 'kamikazes'. Well, George, the kamikazes are back!"
Back to the Bushies and their ilk masquerading as conservatives...
"Even here, we have punitive Republican presidential candidates who have massively expanded Medicaid and the federalization of local education, and that's what common core is about, yet they want you to believe they're conservatives. And while Reagan signed the 1986 amnesty bill, and they'll tell you this time and time again, he would have had the good sense to see that the establishment of both parties reneged on their commitment to secure the border, and he wouldn't have been fooled twice, as he wasn't fooled twice on abortion. Yet, we have punitive Republican presidential candidates who demean the American citizen, referring to us as essentially 'lazy' and 'racist', themselves rejecting the belief of American exceptionalism, insisting that the nation owes its current and future greatness, if not existence, to uninterrupted, massive waves of low-skilled and unskilled aliens from the third world. This has NEVER been the American experience! IMMIGRATION is to be MANAGED, LIMITED, GRADUAL to allow for ASSIMILATION and AMERICANIZATION! You see, Mr. Bush, WE LOVE OUR COUNTRY TOO!
Levin went on to iterate the claims by the establishment that they believe in 'smaller, limited government,' while they vote continuously for omnibus spending bills, continuing resolutions and debt ceiling increases, yet when it comes to using the power of the purse to stop Obama's unconstitutional acts, "they insist that keeping every corner of the federal government open is more of a priority than defending the American people and the Constitution!" And then they preemptively blame themselves if there's a government shutdown, when the fact is, much of the federal government never shuts down. And therein lies a part of the problem! Just as this...
"The Republicans said that if we gave them the Senate, along with the House, they'd do great things. They've done NOTHING. They do their fan dances; they think we're entertained by them. We're not. Obama and the loathsome Harry Reid run circles around them. Harry Reid, one of the most despicable, dumbest men to ever be leader in the Senate running circles around the Republicans. That's what happens when you have no principles, no strategy and no guts.

It's time for the Republican Party to reinvent itself. It's time for a New Republican Party, as Ronald Reagan said. A conservative party."
Levin's parting message to the CPAC crowd, particularly young people who've never had an opportunity to vote for a conservative president in their lifetime...
"My generation owes you the chance to elect a conservative as president and begin the long road back to republicanism and liberty. That has to begin here. It has to begin today. I keep hearing people say, 'we need to unite; unite all wings of the Republican Party.' Ladies and gentlemen, we need to nominate a conservative for President of the United States, and I don't much damn care how we do it!

And you young people, like the rest of us, you deserve a president who is as great as the American people, not a president who despises them."
God Bless this great defender of American liberty. GOD BLESS MARK LEVIN!

'Show me when you fought!' Cruz takes on RINOs at CPAC

Cruz ANNIHILATED at CPAC on Thursday! But it wasn't necessarily what he said about Obama, Hillary and the Washington elite that struck a nerve. Rather, it came down to the question he posed to Republicans pretending to be conservative...
Show me when you fought!
PJMediaTellingly, Cruz used the opportunity to explain what he believes has to be done to put America back on track.

“We need to take the power out of Washington and bring it back to the American people,” Cruz said. And then he went after his fellow Republicans. “Every single person here,” Cruz said, pretends to be ultra conservative now, but how did they actually vote in the past? “When have you stood and fought? If a candidate says they oppose a nuclear Iran, fantastic! When have you actually fought?” Cruz continued:
"If a candidate says they oppose the debt ceiling and the debt that’s crushing our kids and grandkids, we should ask show me where you’ve stood up to stop it. If a candidate says they support the First Amendment or free speech or liberty, if a candidate says they support the Second Amendment—the right to keep and bear arms—we should say show me where you’ve stood up and fought to protect them."
And then came the death blow: the question isn’t whether there are any Republican candidates for president who have stood up to Democrats, but “when have you stood up to Republicans?”
The response of the audience, as well as conservatives online, yet again proves that there's a genuine hunger for a candidate who can take the fight to both Democrats and the RINO leadership alike.

Just looking ahead at the schedule, it should be interesting to hear what Mark Levin concludes with on Saturday, after Mush Bush speaks on Friday...perhaps we'll hear something about that on Friday's program!

Levin gives a very frank assessment of our UNconstitutional republic

"When people say 'we're losing our country,' they're wrong. We've lost our country."
Mark Levin opened his show tonight with a very sober, frank assessment of the state of our unconstitutional republic (H/t: TRS):
"Well, we lost more liberty today. We lost the internet. Now, you won't notice it right away. They'll be some litigation. But you're losing the internet in acts that were taken today by a so-called independent commission, the Federal Communications Commission, which does not have the statutory authority to do what it did. A 330 page regulation, which it instituted without you having the opportunity, or anybody, to read it, including Congress. And they did it at the direction with specific demands, of the President of the United States in violation of the independence of that commission.

And you won't hear a single news broadcast explain to you what I just explained to you. Instead, you'll hear people say, 'Oh, consumer rights,' and 'equality.' Equality. The Public. The Public Interest. These are the catchphrases of the Left, the radical Left and the tyrants, as they destroy the very liberties of the people they pretend to represent.

So under Obama, he's nationalized the internet, he's nationalized healthcare, he's nationalized the banks, he's nationalized student loans. He has seized the power of the purse, or perhaps it was surrendered, either way. He has seized the power to legislate, or perhaps that was surrendered. He has seized Congress's power over immigration and naturalization. He has seized the power over the confirmation process, or has sought to. He's used executive agreements in lieu of the treaty powers under the Constitution to evade the Senate. He's attacked most of the Amendments that make up the Bill of Rights. Free speech in multiple ways, threatening reporters, tapping their phones, intercepting their phone calls, and now the internet... This will now bleed into tv. This is intended to control content, if not directly, indirectly. This is exactly what tyrants do. He's [also] attacked the First Amendment's religious liberty through Obamacare and the IRS. He's attacking the Second Amendment using his bureaucracy to outlaw bullets for certain types of weapons, whether the EPA or the Treasury Department. In so many ways, he's attacked due process rights, he's attacked the taking's clause, also part of your Bill of Rights. And of course, he's attacked the states, like Arizona when it comes to immigration, or other states when it comes to tightening up their voting requirements to prevent people from committing fraud. We call that the Tenth Amendment and federalism.

There is no way, no way in hell, the Framers established the kind of government in which we live in today."

On Thursday’s Mark Levin Show, America is no longer a Constitutional Republic or a Federal Republic. We live in an administrative state under a massive 4th branch of government that we have no influence on whatsoever. The FCC, under direction of President Obama and his specific demands, has taken control of the Internet through Net Neutrality despite having no authority to do so. The left will defend this action by saying it’s for equality and consumer rights; useless catchphrases that destroy the liberties of the people they claim to represent. This isn’t an issue of national security, but about a growing police state extending its control. Obama is doing more damage to the United States than all of our foreign enemies combined.

Reshaping America: the consummate racialist's goal of unfettered immigration

"Obama’s immigration policies are intended to reshape American politics, confessing that his open-border policy is to change the racial makeup of our country." ~ ML
Always with the cards...this consummate RACIALIST.
TheDC: America’s changing population should and will change American politics, President Barack Obama told a Spanish-speaking audience Wednesday.

“At some point there’s going to be a President Rodriguez, or there’s going to be a President Chin. The country is a nation of immigrants, and ultimately, it will reflect who we are, and its politics will reflect who we are,” Obama said during the MSNBC/Telemundo interview, held at Florida International University, in Miami.

The nation’s president said he looks forward to the fundamental transformation of America’s population and politics. “That’s not something to be afraid of. That’s something to welcome,” he said. ...

America isn’t about conservative-style evolved ideas, but about progress into the future, Obama argued. ”We dream about the future. That’s what brings immigrants here, is we’re future-oriented, we’re not past-oriented.”
Yet, the guy can't stop talking about past injustices and equating them to today's illegalities and lawlessness!

This isn't about unregistered immigrants; it's about unregistered DEMOCRATS! 'Americans-in-waiting,' don't you know. And if upping the ante from demographic politics to more racialist animus is what it takes, he's all in. Whitey's gotta go! (except for Democratic subservients)

They all eventually tell you what they really believe, with all their ignorant despotism on display, supplanting the Rule of Law at every turn...

...and every time they SWEAR to uphold the Constitution, they not only don't understand MUCH of it, but what little bit they do, they LIE about upholding. They don't mean a DAMN WORD of the oaths they take.

America, as long as this disinformation stands and is excused, WE have truly lost our government.

Obama to ban bullets by executive action, starting with AR-15 (UPDATE)

“[Obama] wants to take guns out of everybody’s hands and if he can’t do that, he’s going to take the bullets that go in the guns out of everybody’s hands.” ~ RL
It begins...
WashingtonExaminer: As promised, President Obama is using executive actions to impose gun control on the nation, targeting the top-selling rifle in the country, the AR-15 style semi-automatic, with a ban on one of the most-used AR bullets by sportsmen and target shooters.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives this month revealed that it is proposing to put the ban on 5.56 mm ammo on a fast track, immediately driving up the price of the bullets and prompting retailers, including the huge outdoors company Cabela’s, to urge sportsmen to urge Congress to stop the president.
Which firearm will be next on his list?

This administration tests (and exceeds) its limits daily, and we're stuck never knowing which liberty it'll attack next. With the rapid ramp up of lawlessness and tyranny, it's no wonder they're seeking any means of disarmament as they incessantly assault the civility of our society.

If they can't take your rifle, they'll take the bullets for it. Quells your future resolve, don't ya see.

Obama Goes for the Guns

UPDATE: Excuses as justification...despite the fact that the NRA says there is no evidence that these type of bullets have ever been fired at an officer!
WashingtonTimes: The White House said Monday that President Obama believes a ban on bullets commonly used with the AR-15 rifle will save police officers’ lives.

“We are looking at additional ways to protect our brave men and women in law enforcement, and believe that this process is valuable for that reason alone,” said White House press secretary Josh Earnest.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives is accepting public comment on an administration proposal to ban .223 M855 “green tip” ammunition most often used with AR-15 rifles. House lawmakers from both parties, as well as sportsmen and some law enforcement officials, are objecting the move.

Mr. Earnest called it a “common-sense step.”

“The president has long believed that there are some common-sense steps that we can take … to ensure that we’re protecting the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding Americans while also taking some common-sense steps to prevent people who shouldn’t have guns from getting them,” he said.

Obama to ICE: There 'will be consequences' for doing your job

How could anyone every mistake el Presidente for a dictator? I mean, if that were they case, wouldn't Republicans stop him? (you can hang up the sopping wet towel of sarcasm now)
HotAir: The President continued his amnesty tour this week with a stop in Florida. His remarks, both to the crowd during his speech and during an interview with MSNBC’s Jose Diaz-Balart, were rife with the usual “blame the GOP” rhetoric and defenses of the amnesty actions he himself declared beyond his constitutional authority. But he was asked by audience members and his media interviewer as well about why some people were still being deported. His answer was revealing.
MR. DIAZ-BALART: But what are the consequences? Because how do you ensure that ICE agents or Border Patrol won’t be deporting people like this? I mean, what are the consequences?

THE PRESIDENT: José, look, the bottom line is, is that if somebody is working for ICE and there is a policy and they don’t follow the policy, there are going to be consequences to it. So I can’t speak to a specific problem. What I can talk about is what’s true in the government, generally.
This was no slip of the tongue. During the live Q&A he took a similar question from a woman in the crowd and told her, there are going to be some jurisdictions, and there may be individual ICE officials or Border Patrol, who aren’t paying attention to our new directives. There are going to be consequences.
What Obama is actually saying here is that it doesn't matter how the judiciary ruled against his amnesty, "I AM THE LAW!"

A word of advice for ICE: RESIST!

Obamanet advances with FCC net neutrality approval

"'Net Neutrality' is Obamacare for the Internet; the Internet should not operate at the speed of government." ~ Sen. Ted Cruz
Republicans are caving all over the place, conceding Tuesday to Obama and his 'army of internet activists' over the regulation of internet services (i.e., net neutrality). Today, the FCC approved net neutrality rules for their version of a so-called 'open internet' of which only they have determined. Oh, how fair and neutral...
NPR: The Federal Communications Commission approved the policy known as net neutrality by a 3-2 vote at its Thursday meeting, with FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler saying the policy will ensure "that no one — whether government or corporate — should control free open access to the Internet."

The policy helps to decide an essential question about how the Internet works, requiring service providers to be a neutral gateway instead of handling different types of Internet traffic in different ways — and at different costs.

"Today is a red-letter day," Wheeler said later.

The dissenting votes came from Michael O'Rielly and Ajut Pai, Republicans who warned that the FCC was overstepping its authority and interfering in commerce to solve a problem that doesn't exist. They also complained that the measure's 300-plus pages weren't publicly released or openly debated.
'Cause the FCC, a division of the executive branch, thus the GOVERNMENT, would never abuse their authority. Just wait, America...
"If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it." ~ RR

'Some of you may recall Aaron Swartz's Awesome Speech on Internet Freedom. If not, you should give it a listen. Aaron was so right on so many points and eerily predicted this day would come. In my opinion, his 'suicide' was very suspicious. Aaron was the activist that was almost solely responsible for blocking the passage of SOPA and PIPA (previous names related to bills that didn't get passed years ago). With the passage of time and with strong advocates like Aaron no longer in the picture, it cleared the path for The Department of the Internet! #NetNeutrality #NotFree' ~ pjstevenson2001

Loretta Lynch confirmed as AG, thanks to three RINOs

It's like they want to help's like they've already made their Democratic conversion...
HotAir: Because the GOP has a majority in the Senate, it also has a majority on all Senate committees — 12 to 9 in the case of the Judiciary Committee. But since Lynch’s confirmation has become a referendum on executive amnesty and the GOP is riddled with amnesty shills, there was no doubt that a few would cross over and vote with Democrats today to send her through to a floor vote of the entire Senate.

The three defectors: Jeff Flake and Lindsey Graham, both members of the Senate’s Gang of Eight on immigration, and Orrin Hatch, who sold himself as Mr. Conservative to Utah tea partiers in 2012 in order to avoid being primaried.

Remember, there’s no filibuster anymore for presidential nominees except for Supreme Court vacancies. McConnell could have brought back the 60-vote rule for cloture on nominations that Harry Reid abandoned but he’s kept it in place.

Where post-American right meets post-American left

Jeb Bush wants to be the President but he has no connection with hard-working Americans. He claims that immigrants are more entrepreneurial and family oriented than American citizens. Jeb's attitude is no different than Hillary Clinton or any other progressive. ~ TheMarkLevinShow, 2/25/15
As the last Bush opened the gates for Obama, now Obama forges a post-American path for yet another, but of his own desires...
NRO: Kevin is self-evidently correct in endorsing Giuliani’s assertion that President Obama doesn’t love America. But that is likely to be misunderstood by lefties as a claim that Obama is anti-American, which is not correct. Instead, he is our first post-American president. A post-American may like his country just fine, but that feeling is akin to the attitude one might have for a suburb you might live in — it’s a nice enough place, but if you got a better job or found a more suitable house, you’d leave without too much anguish. Love of country, on the other hand, is an emotion, and post-Americans (and post-nationals in general) simply do not experience that emotion. ...

But if Barack Obama is our first post-American president, Jeb Bush wants to be the second. David Frum had an insightful piece at The Atlantic a couple weeks back on the parallels between Obama and Jeb, and their shared post-Americanism is at the center of this similarity.
Both Jeb Bush and Barack Obama are men who have openly and publicly struggled with their ambivalence about their family inheritance. Both responded by leaving the place of their youth to create new identities for themselves...Both chose wives who would more deeply connect them to their new chosen identity. Both derived from their new identity a sharp critique of their nation as it is. Both have built their campaign for president upon a deep commitment to fundamental transformation of their nation into what they believe it should be.
Jeb’s dissatisfaction with America, and desire to change it to be more to his liking, is a theme he returns to often. Jeb’s enthusiasm for immigration (“the public-policy issue he cares about by far the most,” as Frum puts it) is “not only a positive judgment on the immigrants themselves,” Frum notes, but “it is also a negative judgment on native-born Americans.” Some examples:
  • “They’re more entrepreneurial, they set up more business, they buy more homes, they’re more family-oriented, they work in jobs that in many cases are jobs that have gone unfilled” (@ 39:40)
  • “The one way that we can rebuild the demographic pyramid is to fix a broken immigration system... If we do this, we will rebuild our country in a way that will allow us to grow. If we don’t do it, we will be in decline, because the productivity of this country is dependent on young people that are equipped to be able to work hard... Immigrants create far more businesses than native-born Americans over the last 20 years. Immigrants are more fertile, and they love families and they have more intact families.” (@ 12:25)

The truth or falsity of these claims is almost beside the point, because Jeb’s preference for immigrants over Americans is based on emotion, not reason.

Despite what some might say, the problem here is not that Jeb’s wife is from Mexico, their kids grew up speaking Spanish, and they live in a Latin American cultural enclave in the U.S. — it’s that he wants to use government policy to “fix” America by making it more like Miami. If Jeb had so little affection for and grounding in his own heritage that he wanted to assimilate into a Latin-American milieu, that’s a perfectly legitimate choice; I know a number of non-Armenians who’ve basically chosen to assimilate into Armenian life. But to try to impose that personal choice on the nation as a whole is beyond the pale. We don’t need another president who thinks Americans are defective and need to be fixed by the State.
In 2008, liberal Republicans, like Frum, like scores of the GOP misguided, believed (and still do to much extent) that Barack Obama transcended party, politics and even Americanism. Now, these same misguided have allowed this wrecking-ball of a president to accelerate their demise in the guise of finding 'its own candidate for the age of fluidity.' And this is the guy who the Republican Establishment have all but convinced themselves is their hope in 2016. What consummate failures.
We have a new governing model in America - elections only matter when Democrats win. When Democrats win elections they get to govern, saying they act on the behalf of the people, but when Republicans win they don't know how or don't care to govern. President Obama is doing more destruction to America now that the GOP controls Congress because of a complete disconnect between Republican oligarchs and We The People. Like the oligarchs of Soviet Russia, they benefit from big government because that's where they make their money. ~ TheMarkLevinShow, 2/25/15
So, if you want another loser to keep Boehner or McConnell company, go right ahead and wheel in Jeb Bush. Somebody else for even dingy Harry to run circles around.

Levin reads 8 rules for RINOs (ADDENDUM: McConnell)

Befitting of what the not-so-opposition party has become...

CR: It becomes clearer every day that there are not only two parties in Washington, D.C., but there are also two wings of the Republican Party. Conservatives who fight for limited government, fewer taxes, less regulation, more freedom, devolving federal power to the states, prudent immigration, and constitutional principles.

The other wing?

Whether you call them RINOs (Republican In Name Only), liberal Republicans or the Establishment, for them, it’s all about retaining the power that comes from working their well-established connections around “town.”

Some have raised the question, ‘You don’t really think that these members want to help/support/defend Obama’s agenda and policies – do you?’

Hopefully not, but their actions seem to align a lot closer with liberals than conservatives on many issues, so it’s hard to say.
Continue reading this piece to learn of the 8 RINO rules that guide these liberals Republicans. Levin previously encapsulated what's going on with the surrender caucus...
On Monday's Mark Levin Show: Republican Senators are prepared to surrender in the face of victory over President Obama's amnesty. They're being led by Sen. Lindsey Graham, John McCain, and others that don't represent the Republicans but only themselves. Any Republican Senator that votes for funding the DHS, with the amnesty spending, is voting to undermine the Constitution and separation of government powers.
ADDENDUM: Referencing the above 8 rules, it's evident that McConnell uses Reid tricks against conservatives...
CR: In the last two years there have been two major attempts by conservatives to defund catastrophic policies. One attempt was Obamacare in October of 2013 and the other attempt was executive amnesty this week.

In both attempts, the Republican House-passed bills were amended in the Senate to reinstate funding for Obamacare and executive amnesty. ...

In both attempts the exact same parliamentary tricks were used to reinstate funding. In the Obamacare fight it was liberal Harry Reid using the trick to reinstate Obamacare funding. In the executive amnesty fight it was newly elected Republican Leader Mitch McConnell, who today used the exact same parliamentary trick to reinstate funding for Obama’s executive amnesty with 51 votes instead of 60.

The only difference was one majority leader was labeled Republican and the other labeled Democrat, but they both took the exact same course of action to restore funding for a major Obama priority that will change our country forever.

At some point between now and last November, Mitch McConnell woke up one morning, stared into the mirror and had to admit he lied. He lied that a Republican Congress, specifically a Republican Senate, would act to stop Obama’s executive amnesty. ...

Now that McConnell is Majority Leader and no longer needs voters his tune has changed. What we have here is classic evidence of RINO Rules #1 and #8, Bait-&-Switch and Preemptive Surrender.

LEVIN: 'We have the worst group of Republicans in Congress in modern American history'

Surrender, surrender, surrender. What good is the Republican Party as an opposition party anymore?
TRS: Mark Levin opened his show tonight talking about Obama’s unconstitutional amnesty and how Republicans are allowing it to happen without a fight — one party brazenly pushing tyranny and the other surrendering without a fight.

Levin called what is happening in the US Senate a disgrace and said we have a political system that simply does not work for the American people and is not moored to the Constitution.

On Tuesday's Mark Levin Show: We have a political system that is unbefitting of the American people. President Obama's unconstitutional amnesty is giving illegals access to entitlement benefits and fast tracking them to citizenship. If a Republican President tried to pass this the media would be jumping up and down about a Constitutional crisis. The Democrats know exactly what they're doing; they have a strategy and they unify behind it. Meanwhile, we have the worst group of Republicans in Congress in American history. They lie and manipulate us, and now so called conservative news outlets are their mouth-pieces for deception.

No 'shutdown' for DHS without amnesty funding; no 'reform' needed either...ENFORCE immigration LAW!

Where the MSM disregards, hides, or outright misinforms, we must remain resolute in the pursuit of truth and fact.

Here's two ESSENTIAL reasons why the so-called GOP leadership, as well as establishment bullies like McCain, cannot be allowed to pretend as if DHS funding is something more than what reality dictates. Nor can they be allowed to continue furthering the lawlessness by ignoring what's on the books...

First, as far back as 2011, we found out that even in a so-called 'shutdown', 80% of DHS is deemed 'essential' and therefore continues working!
ABCNews: Department of Homeland Security: Working But Limited Services Over 80% of the DHS workforce has been deemed to be "essential" personnel for agencies such as TSA, Customs and Border Protection, Secret Service, Coast Guard, FEMA and Immigration Customs Enforcement. The host of employees from intelligence analysts to cyber security officials are also considered "essential" and will continue working.
