How Congress chooses to act in the coming hours and days will determine whether the President succeeds in his plan to nullify the immigration laws of the United States, said Sen. Jeff Sessions.

If Congress created these domestic armies, then they can disband them by reversing their idiotic 2002 amendment to the Inspector General Act. Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) has a bill titled Regulatory Agency De-militarization Act that does just that. Let’s hope it passes, and soon.
Speaker John Boehner reportedly told Obama that there would be a good chance of passing a comprehensive amnesty bill in the next Congress, which the GOP may control.

The number one thing conservatives have lacked in my 53 years of being involved in the conservative movement at the national level is strong, articulate, effective leadership. Kevin McCarthy has the right instincts and the right tools, if he would turn them toward the right target, and stand and fight for the conservative principles that brought him into the Republican Party he could be a great House Majority Leader.
The House leadership appears to many Americans to be a closed elite cut-off from the conservative grassroots of the Republican Party and impervious to calls for opening the leadership to younger leaders more representative of the limited government constitutional conservative base of the GOP.
A brief review of their records shows, Kevin McCarthy and Pete Sessions long ago disqualified themselves for the leadership of a House Republican Conference that was elected on a platform of governing America according to conservative principles.

Proponents of Democratic Senator Tom Udall's S.J. Res 19 say it would just "repeal Citizens United" or "regulate big money in politics." That is nonsense, says Senator Ted Cruz.

The Montana Tea Party Coalition denies any affiliation with U.S. House candidate Drew Turiano, who calls himself a “tea party Republican who believes in their philosophy.” The coalition said that none had met Turiano or seen him at one of their events or meetings.
Where is the Republican held House of Representatives on Obama’s plan to further ignore, lessen enforcement even more or whatever you call Obama’s willful refusal to faithfully execute the Nation's immigration laws? MIA or in the pocket of the cheap labor wing of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, that's where.
The Club for Growth PAC has endorsed fiscal conservative Bryan Smith for the Idaho 2 seat in Congress and released an ad making the case that Big Government Republican Mike Simpson must be replaced.
Speaker John Boehner suggested the Republican Party's long-standing opposition to President Obama's health care law will again be a central campaign strategy during the fall's congressional elections.
Tired of watching helplessly from the sidelines as Obama decided how to enforce the laws they wrote, House R's pushed back, passing a bill they said would at least rope in the courts to serve as potential referees between the branches of gov't.
Ignoring BHO’s veto threat, the House voted for a bill that would expedite congressional lawsuits against the chief exec. for failure to enforce federal laws. Trey Gowdy read statements by Obama when he was a Sen. in which he warned of the encroachment of the exec. on other branches of gov't.
A new Pew Research poll found 56% of people say the U.S. should not get too involved after Russian forces took over the Crimean Peninsula in Ukraine. Another 29% think the U.S. needs to take a firm stand.
