Fact: the Senate Democrats, mustered by the scurvy Harry Reid, insist that Congress appropriate money for Obama's administration to do something which Congress never authorized it to do.
Fact: If Congress did not authorize the administration to allow aliens here illegally to get work cards, Social Security numbers, drivers' licenses and three years' back worth of Earned Income Tax Credit, then the administration's proposal to give them all those things anyway is unconstitutional.
Fact: If the administration wants to operate outside the law, Congress has no obligation to vote it the money it needs to do so -- in fact, it is just the opposite: Congress must withhold that money, or it will become just an enabler of the Rule of One Man, and might just as well, as I say, go home in disgrace.
Fact: If the Senate Democrats and Dirty Harry Reid want to prevent the Department of Homeland Security's appropriations bill from passing unless it includes funds for One-Man Rule, I say: Let them! We know they care nothing for the Constitution or their oaths of office, so why should anyone even bother to give them the time of day?
Fact: If the DHS appropriations bill does not pass, guess what? Ninety percent of DHS will go right on operating -- just without the funds to do more illegal things than it is already doing. And those who are required to show up to to work without being paid may begin to learn what it means to work for a lawless administration.
Fact: Yes, the Department of Homeland Security is already illegally issuing work permits to those aliens who are not entitled to them under the law: since 2009, when Obama took office, it appears to have issued 7.4 million of them. So what's another paltry 9 million? We have One-Man Rule already, and have had it for six years.
Fact: Although Obama ought to be impeached over this, as well as over so many other of his acts contrary to the country's laws, Congress just will not do it. The House of Representative has the votes to pass a bill of impeachment, but the Senate has nowhere near the 67 votes needed to convict. Which is to say: there are at least 21, and potentially as many as 54, traitors to the Rule of Law now sitting in the Senate. And we elected them -- every damned one.
Where, then, does that leave the country? In the hands of a scofflaw who has Congress buffaloed. A scofflaw who vetoes the Keystone Pipeline bill because it "infringes upon his executive prerogatives", while he goes right on infringing on the prerogatives of the legislative and judicial branches with impunity.
I'm with Ann Coulter on this one:
If a Republican majority in both houses of Congress can't stop Obama from issuing illegal immigrants Social Security cards and years of back welfare payments, there is no reason to vote Republican ever again.
