Going down the path of subjecting every opinion – and fact – to an arbitrary and capricious racial sensitivity test is the end of truth-seeking and honest public debate.

The establishment media, encouraged none too subtly by President Obama’s announcement that he was unconstitutionally granting amnesty and work permits to millions of illegal aliens, has now decreed that “Thanksgiving is about immigration” and that the Pilgrims were “illegal immigrants.”

Federal officers and employees have both the obligation to disobey an illegal and unconstitutional order and a legal right to protection from retribution if they do. We should support and encourage them keep their oath to protect and defend the Constitution, and honor and support those who do.

If Senator McConnell won’t use the votes he has in the Senate, and Speaker Boehner won’t use the majority he has in the House to stop Obama’s illegal and unconstitutional executive amnesty, then they should get out of the way and let conservatives organize the opposition and unite Republicans to use all the tools the Constitution gives them to rein-in a lawless President.

This is a constitutional fight to the finish, and it can only go one of two ways. If the Republican leadership caves in then Congress and the Republican Party become irrelevent. The only way to retain the relevance of Congress as an institution of constitutional government, and the relevance of the Republican Party, is for Republican leaders to use every tool the Constitution bestows upon Congress to fight and win the battle against Obama’s executive amnesty.

Steve Deace, a nationally-syndicated talk show host and author of the new book, “Rules for Patriots: How Conservatives Can Win Again,” has some sage advice for Republicans. “Forget what your consultants tell you is politically possible. You’re up against an opponent who doesn’t care about possible, let alone legal.”

A Senate GOP aide told Breitbart News that chaos would spread across Washington if Obama announces executive amnesty and the House passes an omnibus with no language blocking it. "There will be no Senate vote, because conservatives will burn down the Capitol," said the aide. He was, of course, speaking figuratively, but there's nothing figurative about the message conservatives have for Capitol Hill Republican leaders: Fight Or Be Complicit. CALL YOUR REPRESENTATIVE and SENATORS at 1-866-220-0044 TELL THEM TO STOP OBAMA'S UNCONSTITUTIONAL AMNESTY #FightOrBeComplicit

Senator Ted Cruz, in an op-ed in Politico, made the case that the dispute over executive amnesty is not between President Obama and Republicans in Congress; it is a dispute between President Obama and the American People, and in such disputes the power of We the People must be paramount. SIGN and SHARE OUR PETITION TO STOP OBAMA'S EXECUTIVE AMNESTY!

Sources say Obama is set to unveil his executive actions on amnesty for illegals this week. UPDATE: Obama will announce his executive actions on immigration in a prime-time address to the nation on Thurs. night at 8pm ET. CALL YOUR REPRESENTATIVE and SENATORS at 1-866-220-0044 (Capitol Switchboard) NOW!

Behind the chortling laughter that accompanies Jonathan Gruber’s boasts about taking advantage of the “stupidity” of average Americans there hides a darker and even uglier truth – there are thousands of little Jonathan Grubers embedded in every state, city and town across America.

Yesterday conservatives honored Barry Goldwater and celebrated the fact that, despite Goldwater's epic 1964 defeat, the members of the “Stop Goldwater” movement are largely forgotten, while the organizations founded by the people that Barry Goldwater inspired, including the Viguerie Company and ConservativeHQ.com, remain vigorous and growing.  

We should celebrate a quarter century after the collapse of communism.  The events of 1989 represent a massive increase in liberty, a fantastic triumph of the human spirit.  With so little bloodshed everyday people ousted a gaggle of tyrannies.  They have given hope for future generations, and themselves, that freedom can emerge against seemingly impossible odds.

    If R's were serious about fighting O's unconstitutional exec. amnesty, they would have reconvene a special session. We need to use the numerous GOP-controlled state legislatures to push through enduring safeguards against the type of irrevocable tyranny.

  • David Corbin and Matt Parks, The Federalist

    Republicans would be better off if they spent more time figuring out how to use a legislative veto (and funding a constitutional gov't worth funding), and less time making idle threats.

    The satirical online publication The Daily Currant claimed Sarah Palin said America should send illegal immigrants to Mexico by sending them back home across the ocean. The story is completely fake, but, several libs fell for the story and responded with their trademark hatred.

    The gov't reform & tax-relief measures enacted by Walker and other GOP governors are a big reason for the electoral success. Coolidge’s record and how it compares to what Walker has done in Wis. make a strong case for his name to be on the short list of GOP contenders.

  • Elliot Jager, Newsmax

    Conservative critics of Ohio GOP Gov. John Kasich have latched onto a report from the Homeland Security  Inspector General's office that criticized the state's management of $61.6 million in grant money. The report could pose a stumbling block for his possible '16 presidential run.

    Hal Rogers, who says R's can’t block funding because the US Citizenship & Immigration Services involved operates on fees. Laura Ingraham said that's dishonest. “The clever people on Cap. Hill could figure this one out in a better way than just ‘Throw Up Your Hands, Hal.’

  • Mark Davis, TownHall

    The Obama speech was not even a defining moment. It was a roadblock that needs to be worked around so that we can craft legislation that people can actually support, and that a much better president can actually sign.

  • Tony Lee, Breitbart

    Sarah Palin blasted  Obama for endangering the country and screwing American workers--U.S.-born and legal immigrants--of all backgrounds with his executive amnesty for illegal immigrants. 

  • Rebecca Shabad, The Hill
