This brings forth an interesting situation which even furthers the argument that actions taken are clearly not legal. While most of us have no question in our minds about the President not being able to trump Congress on the writing of laws, even a good liberal would have to recognize that a Cabinet-level officer has no authority to create law which is what this action has done. Of course, Obama has surrounded himself with a bunch of cronies who think they can do what they want and thus far the Congress has shown reluctance to do anything. The EPA, Department of Health and Human Services and the IRS all offer examples of legislation by administrative process and it is killing our system of government by slow death.
Meanwhile, back on Capitol Hill, the hapless and cowardly Speaker of the House John Boehner has once again sold out the Republican base without even a whimper of opposition to Obama. He has opted to do nothing about Obama's power grab, approving an Omnibus budget bill allowing continued free spending by the President who now has added more to the deficit than all other Presidents combined. Talking about fiscal insanity? That's where we find ourselves today. And the other "leader" who offers no confidence to us, the soon-to-be Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has stated he will defer to Boehner on amnesty. Of course he will, the entire process has been scripted behind closed doors and largely at the request of the big business community and it's PR team at the Chamber of Commerce.
Thankfully, there is a growing chorus of Conservatives in the House who are starting a challenge to Boehner on this issue and we, the people need to speak up and support them. Men like Steve King, Louie Gohmert, and Jim Jordan in the House and the great Jeff Sessions in the Senate are leading the charge for a Republican response to the President that shows who the winners were in the off-year election. Never in my memory can I remember a party that was so successful in an election become so paralyzed by the man they were voted in to stop. It must be the Chamber money at play; otherwise I really can't come up with a reason for why they are so petrified of doing their jobs. Of course, when you don't have a solid core of principles to guide you it is easy to justify anything.
America, everyone needs to get on the "horn" and tell your elected officials what you want, no, what you demand. Tell them to just say no to amnesty and vote for America, not a leadership that is drunk on power. And if something else needs to be done to make the point clear, perhaps it would be a good idea to begin impeachment action against Jeh Johnson. He clearly has overstepped any authority of his position even if it was done so at the behest of his leader.
America can't survive much more of this and we are her last best hope. If we let freedom ring in the form of our outspokenness with those elected to represent us, we have a better than 50-50 chance of meeting our objectives. Otherwise, I fear our country is not long for this world.
This is a battle that we can and must win. So let's take it to the House and win one for the Gipper.
