All Dates Are Morally Equivalent; Questions Are Raaaaacist: Shut Up

This week came word that the Obama Administration had actually begun implementing his executive amnesty plan well before he claimed to. In fact, his administration claimed that the amnesty plan would not be implemented until mid-February.
A few days before the start of implementation, a federal judge in Texas issued an injunction against the implementation based on the Obama Administration’s claims on when implementation would begin. It is clear now that the Obama Administration misrepresented the start date and had already begun implementing his plans before the court’s injunction.
This morning, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton filed a “Motion for Early Discovery.” The motion requests the court grant Texas permission to start delving into the implementation of Expanded DACA to date.”

At what point do we start to wonder if the 4th quarter of the #OccupyResoluteDesk debacle isn’t just an extended troll, begging for impeachment?

After the recent display of incontinence on DHS funding, the rodeo clown could pretty much snort coke in the Rotunda without a word said, as far as I can tell. Lot of pissed veterans out there, who’s sworn to support and defend the Constitution, only to see it dissolve into idiocy.

    Democrats need more Democrats.They don’t breed them any more, so they import them.

    As far as impeachment, can you really see that with Boehner and McConnell in charge? They would only support impeachment and conviction if the President was named Ted Cruz. Even if the GOP was committed, you need a substantial number of Democrats to go along with it.

    We need to recognize the enemy is the media and conservatives need to counter that every chance they get. It can work, but it takes recognizing the problem and confronting it.

    As I understand it these were renewals of earlier DACA beneficiaries using the expanded benefits of the latest EO. This is one reason it was important to include DACA defunding in the effort to defund the latest executive action.

    It doesn’t matter who’s in charge, it would take at least 67 Republicans in the senate to convict.

    It takes 67 men and women of integrity and objective conviction to convict–it should not cut purely to partisan party lines. And we sure as hell do not have close to that number.

    You think when Oblamo calls off the 2016 elections for some trumped up national emergency, maybe, just maybe, the bullets will start flying then? There seems to be no stopping executive overreach in the system as created by the founding fathers except for the 2nd Amendment.

    If Hillary weren’t presiding over a clown show, I’d be more worried. But before fumbling things, she had a 1-day boost after the craven display in the House.
    I’m not sure a couple of million Republicans didn’t de-register the day after.

    There was some FIERCE debate before the midterms about whether it was better to support the GOP at any price.
    Some thought that any Republican would be better than a Democrat.
    My position was that RINOs do twice the damage:
    First, they refuse to fight or work themselves into untenable positions. The result is that Dems get their agenda passed anyway.
    Secondly, the GOP in general gets blamed for the failure. After all, weren’t they in (nominal) control?

    This was the history of Romney in MA. This is the history of McConnell and Boehner currently.

    After all this, it now seems clear that we MUST clean house first. Even if that results in us losing a few cycles. This will either start in 2016, or the GOP base will need to be burned some more.
    I just hope we can get rid of Obamacare first.

    I doubt we have half that number. very few have any principles beyond themselves.

    Clean house how? I just don’t understand what you expect the GOP to do when every action you would like them to take would cause the GOP to be ripped apart by the media and popularity of the GOP would drop into the toilet. Let’s say they went ahead and shut down the DHS. Do you think that will be spun in a positive light on The Nightly News? It doesn’t matter that 80 percent will still work, it is the perception that the media will narrate that matters

    Whether you like it or not, 40 percent of the nation is leftist with another 10 left leaning. You need every RINO vote you can get.
