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.
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.”
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.
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.

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.

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.
By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
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.
When Kevin McCarthy and Chris Christie talk about “compromise” what they are really talking about is growing government at a slightly slower pace than it would grow if Obama had a Democratic majority on Capitol Hill. That is not what handed Republicans back the majority.
Congressman Hal Rogers is the main proponent and architect of a bill to fund Obama’s planned amnesty for illegal aliens. The bill will provide money that could pay General Dynamics (whose employees contributed thousands to Rogers' campaigns) perhaps as much as $125 million to print green cards and other documents for the illegal immigrants to whom Obama will give amnesty. Call Hal Rogers at 202-225-4601 and tell him an Omnibus equals Amnesty. SIGN and SHARE OUR PETITION TO STOP OBAMA'S EXECUTIVE AMNESTY!
