The Left and those who share the notion that justice must be tailored to the special political circumstances of each case, want to use the death of Michael Brown to establish a system of “justice” based on the politics of race, economics and ideology, not law.
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.
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.

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.
