When President Obama, who almost never personally whips members of Congress, did just that to pass the massive spending bill, you know it was a big deal.
What a picture. The voters have just administered a massive spanking to Democrats because of Obamacare and amnesty; yet, Speaker Boehner was a key player in preserving and funding the President’s two key initiatives designed to “fundamentally transform America,” to use the President’s 2008 campaign pledge.
The Speaker has pledged to fight over amnesty in February, when funding for amnesty implementation must be extended by Congress. Why February will be a more propitious time for Boehner to fight then in December was not made clear.
Before going farther, let me explain the Second Amendment implications of Obamacare and amnesty. Obamacare opens all medical records to computer snooping by the government. Should any of a wide range of non-violent psychiatric diagnoses (not convictions in a court of law) be found, they become the basis for denial of the right to keep and bear arms.
The President’s illegal executive amnesty initiative is an existential threat to the Second Amendment. Senator Mike Lee (R-UT) has explained the danger of this course of action. The President’s amnesty puts millions of illegals (85% of whom when polled indicate they will vote for anti-Second Amendment Democrats) on a fast track for citizenship. Once these illegally minted new voters go to the ballot boxes, they will be voting for anti-gun candidates.
The President’s amnesty provides for an illegal, virtually immediate bypass of the requirement that an illegal immigrant leave the country for 10 years before their US-born citizen children can sponsor them to return. All an illegal will have to do now is leave the country for something like a meeting, and then return. This is all it will take to achieve green card and then citizenship status.
