  • Amnesty Protestors Crash Capitol Hill Switchboard

    dailycaller.com ^ | 12/11/14 | Neil Munro
    The Capitol Hill switchboard has been overwhelmed by calls to Congress. The 202 224-3121 number is jammed, likely by people protesting House Speaker John Boehner’s 2015 government funding bill, which allows funding for President Barack Obama’s unpopular decision to stop enforcing immigration law, and to award work-permits to at least 5 million illegal immigrants. Boehner’s effort to fund the $1.1 trillion bill and amnesty is being backed by President Barack Obama, whose deputies are pushing Democrats to support Boehner’s bill. The Daily Caller called the switchboard number at 3:28, and it was not answered for seven minutes. It is usually...

    Stop President Obama’s Illegal Immigration Action in Court President Obama broke the law. He violated the Constitution. Now we’re taking aggressive action in court. President Obama said he “change[d] the law” when he took unilateral action on immigration. The Constitution is clear: The President enforces the law. He does not make the law. Twenty states are taking a stand to defend the Constitution against President Obama’s imperial immigration action. They’ve filed a massive federal lawsuit to stop his unconstitutional overreach. We’re joining them. We’re preparing to file a critical amicus brief to stop President Obama’s illegal action. We testified before...

    GOP members have released their draft amendment to defund President Barack Obama’s national amnesty. “None of the funds appropriated or otherwise made available, including any funds or fees collected or otherwise made available for expenditure, by this division or any other Act, or otherwise available to the Secretary of Homeland Security, for any fiscal year may be used to implement, administer, carry out, or enforce the [amnesty] policies,” says the short amendment. The new anti-amnesty language is being pushed by Arizona Rep. Matt Salmon, South Carolina’s Rep. Mick Mulvaney and Virginia Rep. Dave Brat, who unseated the GOP’s pro-amnesty majority...
  • 1.1 Trillion Omnibus GOP Bill Includes Giant Political Earmark For Establishment GOP

    Senate Conservatives Action ^ | 12-10-14 | Ken Cuccinelli II
    The text of the 1,603-page, $1.1 trillion omnibus spending bill was released yesterday after House and Senate leaders wrote it behind closed doors. Instead of fighting for a provision that defunds the president's unlawful amnesty, Republican leaders fought for other riders. For example, they airdropped a political earmark into the bill that increases the amount the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) can collect from individual donors from $32,400 per year to $324,000 – a tenfold increase. Since the NRSC takes sides in primaries, the new donation limit will help the DC establishment do more to support liberal incumbents. RINOIt's an...

    Nine years ago Eaker & I were talking about what a wonderful person TexasCowboy was and what poopheads his children were. We both agreed that it would be a damn shame to let the memory of him lapse. Three or four times a year TexasCowboy would host shoots at various ranges across Texas. After everyone was finished shooting, he would then serve up a yummy lunch. It was while Eaker & I were talking that I came up with the (rare brilliant) idea of continuing what he started, but to do this in his memory. This is how the TexasCowboy...

    Renew America ^ | Updated November 20, 2014 | By Stephen Stone, RenewAmerica President
    Shortly after communist-mentored Barack Obama was elected to the White House in 2008, I asked a brother at a family gathering, "Who's going to be president of the United States in 20 years?" Without hesitating, he said, "Barack Obama." More informed than most people I'd asked, he instantly got the drift of my question. As I was thinking through the implications of the de facto communist coup that precipitated the question, however, I was struck with a realization that gave me some degree of hope in the face of our nation's heightened peril. Although no major communist strongman in the...

    I've just completed my telephone calls to my two U.S. Senators and my Congressman, all who are unfortunately Democrats and among the worst of the worst. The purpose of these telephone calls were twofold. First, I wanted to learn what the Senator's or Congressman's position is in regard to Obama's anticipated Executive Order to grant illegal aliens amnesty or some degree of immunity from immigration related law enforcement. Second, I wanted to urge the Senator or Congressman to use whatever influence they may have to stop Obama before he issues such an illegal and unconstitutional executive order, because such an...

    Obama plans to declare amnesty tomorrow or Friday. Please take smart, effective action right now to stop Obama's plan or to at least minimize how bad amnesty will be. What we need is for leading Democrats to see that amnesty would harm their careers and reduce their chances of being reelected. If they realize how it would harm their careers, then they'll pressure Obama to halt or minimize his plans, or at least they'll help fight against his attempts to implement amnesty. So, how do we make Dems realize that? By promising to use the Stop Amnesty Challenge against them...

    Why Does HSLDA Oppose the Treaty? Promoting equal rights and protections for disabled persons around the world sounds like a great idea. But let’s take a closer look at what the treaty actually says and how it would impact the United States. Here are some of our most serious concerns. The CRPD could threaten homeschooling rights and parental rights. It would surrender parents and caregivers’ decision-making ability on behalf of their disabled children to unelected and unaccountable UN bureaucrats. The CRPD would override existing state laws, seriously damaging states’ rights. The CRPD would surrender our nation’s sovereignty to unelected bureaucrats.

    During the August recess, the Congressman had scheduled a number of “town hall” meetings at various locations in his district. One of those meetings was held in Loveland, Colorado on Saturday, August 9th. About 60 people showed up for this event. It was a mixed crowd of mostly older men and women, with an odd sprinkle of 20-somethings seated in the first row. An intense looking woman in her 70s brought in a placard exclaiming “End US Aggression Now”. An equally intense looking man in his 50s, wearing motorcycle leathers, and a spectacular moustache, was sporting a black T-shirt that...

Sessions wants Americans to melt Congress’ phone lines, demanding their members make a precondition of any border crisis bill that Obama’s executive order amnesty via the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) and any future plans be stopped.

    This weekend, I had the opportunity to speak with a group of anti-amnesty protesters in Annapolis, Maryland. They were a small but very enthusiastic group and were grateful that I was there to provide a greater awareness for their cause. They protested at the intersection of West St. and Route 2 in Annapolis, a short drive from the governor’s mansion, where Martin O’Malley is seeking to bring illegal immigrant children, who crossed the southern border to Maryland. One of the ladies I spoke with was part of the “Free Republic” group. While they didn’t organize this particular protest, they...
  • FR's BP expedition to the Texas Rio Grande Valley is on the road!! [FReepathon, RGV special]

    Howdy everyone!! We've loaded up the FReepercampmobile and we're enroute for Texas!! Din't make it very far last night due to a non-serious (we hope) engine problem going up the Grapevine. Added a quart of oil and kept on trucking. Then we encountered a construction zone and it took us over two hours just to travel 12 miles, so we decided to pull into the nearest RV park and camp for the night. We're hoping to make Las Cruces tonight and then, God willing, we will arrive McAllen Texas sometime tomorrow night and will plant our flag at our border...

    Howdy everyone!! We're loading up the FReepercampmobile today and will be departing for Texas this afternoon. God willing, we will arrive McAllen Texas sometime Thursday night and will plant our flag at our border encampment on the American bank of the Rio Grande River!! We had planned this expedition several weeks ago and were intending to urge Governor Perry to call out the Texas Guard and or Texas militia units at his disposal and also to learn first hand what's happening at the border and to protest the government's lawless actions there. The president will not secure the border, will...
  • Protest Obama's Texas Rio Grande Valley Border Crisis and Illegal Alien Invasion of America

    Calling all citizens and patriots! Protest Obama's lawlessness on the border! Prepare to defend the border, repel invaders!! Obama's continuing lawlessness is totally out of control and is now threatening our very existence as a free Republic. Not only is he not securing the border, he's doing the exact opposite. They tried getting a "Dream Act" through the congress to give amnesty to young illegal aliens, but it was rejected by the representatives of we the people in congress, so the president has unconstitutionally "passed" his own "Dream Act" and is now enforcing it rather than the immigration laws legally...

    Here are a few fotos from I95 overpass demonstrations in Brevard County, Florida today. The first pic is at the Port St. John overpass ... The other two are at the Pineda overpass where there were about 30 patriots waving and whooping at the high point. There was very positive response from the passing cars but especially from the truckers and bikers. I arrived at 12:30 and made some new friends with like-minded folks from local organizations including: www.SpaceCoastPatriots.com www.ActSpaceCoast.org www.Brevard912.net www.BrevardTeaParty.com FReeper Guenevere was there too but I must have missed her.

    Hey there Freepers... I've been reading Free Republic for Years, finally joined. The wife and I were at the Orlando overpass protest today, it sure was hot. Not a huge crowd today, but we slowed down traffic on I-4 for a while. Many honks! I was also at the Ocoee event on Friday. Keep up the good work.

    . 2014-07-19 : St. Petersburg, FL We had about 35 Patriots show-up at the Overpass "Anti-Immigration" rally at I-275 and 54th Street. Traffic volume suggests that we reached almost 20,000 drivers with the message, over a three-hour period. Photographs will be published as soon as they're available. The most noteworthy event was the appearance of a "Professional Air Survelliance Drone". The drone was not the typical $ 300 drone that's available at Brookstone. Nor was it a Dragan Flyer series. The drone was a quad-copter, white in color, with a solid structrual interface between the center section (oval shaped) and...

    We had about a hundred people present at our anti-illegal alien protest in Sacramento today. We had people representing Oath Keepers, Overpasses for America, Free Republic and other groups, including a contingent of volunteers from the Bolinas Border Patrol. There was only one counter protester that I'm aware of and in the end she gave in and took up an American flag and a "Secure the Borders" sign. I overheard her say, "OMG, I've always been a flaming liberal and now I'm a member of the tea party!" But she was also an admitted lunatic and possibly an escapee from...
