DTP noon Update— #mitchmcconnell has gruberized grassroots Republian voters on stopping illegal immigration


DTP featured image McConnell just gave upRepublican Sen. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has apparently given up in opposing the illegal and unconstitutional actions of President Obama on legalizing illegal aliens. One may even speculate with reasonable confidence that McConnell didn’t ever intend to oppose President Obama. It now appears that McConnell has been gruberizing grassroots Republican voters by implying, throughout the fall general election, that he, as the new Senate Majority Leader, would take every constitutional action possible to stop President Obama’s illegal and unconstitutional acts. What is the political policy difference between Harry Reid and Mitch McConnell—absolutely nothing?

Every grassroots Republican voter who went to the polls last November to help put the Republicans in the majority in the U.S. Senate and to maintain its majority in the House of Representatives should be insulted by this action. It’s time to drop the hammer on the Republican Party and take it back from those, like McConnell, who are untrustworthy. The 2016 Republican primaries is where and when this can happen. More to come on this.

Note that the powers of the Senate are those specifically empowered by the U.S. Constitution. They do not have any power to pass a law that permits or funds an illegal or unconstitutional act. Such a law has no legal authority. All 26 states that opposed the President’s illegal and unconstitutional actions in federal court should now do the same for any DHS funding bill that funds these illegal and unconstitutional actions. Also, do not be surprised if, should the “clean” DHS bill be passed, the administration will use this fact to argue in federal court that Congress has agreed that the actions are indeed legal and constitutional or Congress would not have funded them. This is the legal hole that McConnell is digging and appears to be doing this with full knowledge of what he is doing. What is a good word for this?

Also note that the Senate rule on 60 votes to begin or end debate is just a rule. It is not in the Constitution. Abiding by a rule that prevents the Senate from passing a proper constitutional law is unbelievable! This is what McConnell is doing—it’s his excuse.

Call Ohio Sen. Rob Portman today and express outrage at this action. 202-224-3353
