Rep.Trey Gowdy warned Democrats Wednesday about the repercussions of President Obama’s unlawful amnesty.
“You may benefit from the president’s failure to enforce the law today,” Gowdy said at a House Judiciary Committee hearing on Obama’s action.
“But I’ll make you this promise,” he warned. “There will come a day where you will cry out for the enforcement of the law. There will come a day when you long for the law to be the foundation of this republic.”
“So you be careful what you do with the law today, because if you weaken it today, you weaken it forever,” he told them.

The America that has existed from the days of the Declaration of Independence in 1776, when its sovereignty was acknowledged by a treaty with England 1783, and its founding in 1788 with the ratification of the Constitution is no more. The America for which thousands fought and gave their lives is no more
That America ends on February 26 when the Federal Communications Commission, under intense pressure from the Obama White House and with the votes of its Democratic Party commissioners asserts government control over the Internet with a 332-page set of regulations, dubbed “Net Neutrality.”
Writing in the Feb 22nd Wall Street Journal, columnist L. Gordon Crovitz summed up what will occur saying “Obamanet promises to fix an Internet that isn’t broken…The permissionless Internet which allows anyone to introduce a website, app, or device without government review, ends this week.”
“The big politicization came when President Obama in November demanded that the supposedly independent FCC apply agency’s most extreme regulation to the Internet.” Of course Obama wants the Internet regulated and of course the Democratic Party will support this move to control who gets to put up a website or blog and, more importantly, who gets to say anything critical of the President.
The NY Times and the AP reported today on a proposal in Geneva now being considered which would allow Iranians to continue nuclear production with limitations for ten years but with a corresponding easing of sanctions.
The Associated Press (AP) reported that a potential deal would phase out restrictions on Iran’s uranium enrichment activities in the final years which would potentially allow them to build a nuclear weapon unobstructed towards the end of the term.
The core idea would be to reward Iran for good behavior over the last years of any agreement, gradually lifting constraints on its uranium enrichment and slowly easing economic sanctions, AP reports.
In other words, they can not only be a nuclear threshold state with the the ability to eventually have the bomb. Sanctions, our one bargaining chip, would be thing of the past.

George Orwell said that “in a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act.” Republican congressman Brian Babin is new to Congress, and this dentist from Woodvine, Texas radiates a love for country while worrying for his grandchildren when he sees the sorry state of our federal government.
But Babin is unafraid to speak clearly, and Washington should listen to what he has to say.
When the Democrats crowed in December about getting “all they wanted from Republicans” in the Cromnibus, the newly elected Babin became increasingly skeptical of what House Republicans were doing. On the opening day of the 114th Congress, Babin was one of the 25 who didn’t vote for John Boehner for Speaker, a vote he said “was not fun,” but which was facilitated by numerous, passionate calls from his district supporting his doubts.
Contradicting the notion of compromise with President Obama that most Republican leaders are currently espousing, this freshman says his Texas voters “unequivocally sent a message to stop Obama’s policies. Period.”
While Babin believes President Obama “deserves impeachment,” he can’t see Washington doing it. But the new Republican Senate can allow the 114th Congress to demonstrate the congressional “power of the purse” as given to it in the Constitution. The president “can no longer hide behind the skirts of Harry Reid,” he says.
It is an understood and often wearisome aspect of the presidency of the United States that one does not have a blank slate upon assuming office. One inherits both the achievements and failures of all previous administrations. Thus, making statements about the nation’s course of action is fraught with peril.
President Obama demonstrated this cold lesson of history when he requested that Congress grant him military authorization to use force in Iraq – a nation the United States has largely vacated – in order to combat the growing scourge of ISIS (also known as ISIL or the Islamic State).
In this context, it’s important to review 11 major statements that former Senator and current president Barack Obama made on the war:
