US 2014 elections must be canceled due to erasure of southern border. A country with no southern border isn't a country. Elections in a non-existent country are meaningless. US political class must be forced 'out of the shadows'

7/29/14, "Jeff Sessions: John Boehner 'Surrenders to a Lawless President'," Breitbart, Matthew Boyle

"Senate Budget Committee ranking member Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) said in a statement Tuesday that House Speaker John Boehner’s border crisis working group’s legislation is a “surrender” to a “lawless president.”

“The Obama Administration has openly declared its plan to implement a unilateral executive amnesty for 5–6 million more illegal immigrants,” Sessions said. He went on:

"This unlawful amnesty—urged on by congressional Democrats—would include work permits, taking jobs directly from millions of struggling American citizens. Any action Congress might consider to address the current border crisis would be futile should the President go forward with these lawless actions. Congress must speak out and fight against them. It must use its spending power to stop the President’s executive amnesty. That the House leaders’ border package includes no language on executive actions is surrender to a lawless President. And it is a submission to the subordination of congressional power."

At issue is the House GOP bill to address the border issue, which does not include language sought by Sessions and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) to attempt to stop Obama from expanding his “deferred” deportation of certain illegal aliens to as many as six million people.

The bill includes $659 million for the border crisis and makes a few minor policy changes intended to facilitate the speedy return of tens of thousands of children who have streamed across the border this year.

Sessions said the omission of language addressing Obama's Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program is infuriating.

After years of falling wages and rising joblessness, American workers are pleading for someone to hear them,” Sessions said. “How can it be that our President is brazenly advertising that he will nullify and strip away American workers’ immigration protections, and their own elected leaders will not rise to their defense? Or to the defense of our laws and our Constitutional order?”

Sessions also argued that Boehner’s plan expedites asylum requests for illegal aliens who seek it, rather than expediting their removal from the United States:

"There are other grave concerns with the Granger package as well. Because it does not fix our asylum rules and loopholes, the end result of the additional judges and hearings will be more illegal immigrants gaining asylum and access to U.S. welfare. It is a plan for expedited asylum, not expedited removal. Nor will this package make our rogue President actively enforce anything, coming nowhere close to the kinds of reasonable enforcement activities needed to restore the interior application of our immigration laws."

Sessions cited how Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid may try to include the entire Gang of Eight bill in any conference committee with the Boehner-Granger package. Sessions called on all lawmakers to refuse to support the legislation.

“And finally, a package that is silent on blocking amnesty creates an opportunity for Senate Democrats to add elements of their party’s open borders and mass immigration agenda,” Sessions said.This legislation is unworthy of support.

In response to the conference committee concerns, whereby Senate Democrats would try to include the entire comprehensive Gang of Eight bill in this package, Boehner issued a statement promising he would not let that happen."...


Comment: Obama's 2012 re-election saved John Boehner's life. Boehner immediately told elected House GOP members that they lost badly, Obama won, the nation spoke, elected GOP must act like losers and ignore voters who elected them. In Jan. 2013 House GOP Majority "Leader" Boehner continued to publicly work for the executive branch, voiding the US Constitution's separation of powers and nullifying all elections in which a Republican was elected.


Obama's 2012 victory gave new life to John Boehner:
12/8/12, “Once Boxed-In, Boehner May Finally Be Master Of The House,” NPR, Frank James


The day after Obama's 2012 re-election GOP House Speaker Boehner told elected House GOP members that despite holding a majority in the House they "lost badly:"

11/10/12, "Boehner Tells House G.O.P. to Fall in Line," NY Times, Jonathan Wiseman, Jennifer Steinhauer

"On a conference call with House Republicans a day after the party’s electoral battering last week, Speaker John A. Boehner dished out some bitter medicine, and for the first time in the 112th Congress, most members took their dose.

Their party lost, badly, Mr. Boehner said, Mr. Boehner said, and while Republicans would still control the House and would continue to staunchly oppose tax rate increases as Congress grapples with the impending fiscal battle, they had to avoid the nasty showdowns that marked so much of the last two years.

Members on the call, subdued and dark, murmured words of support — even a few who had been a thorn in the speaker’s side for much of this Congress.

It was a striking contrast to a similar call last year, when Mr. Boehner tried to persuade members to compromise with Democrats on a deal to extend a temporary cut in payroll taxes, only to have them loudly revolt. 

With President Obama re-elected and Democrats cementing control of the Senate, Mr. Boehner will need to capitalize on the chastened faction of the House G.O.P. that wants to cut a deal to avert sudden tax increases and across-the-board spending cuts in January that could send the economy back into recession. After spending two years marooned between the will of his loud and fractious members and the Democratic Senate majority, the speaker is trying to assert control and many members seem to be offering support.

[Ed. note: The US once had a two party system. A large country with only one functioning political party is a dictatorship. ]

(continuing): “To have a voice at the bargaining table, John Boehner has to be strong,” said Representative Tom Cole of Oklahoma, one of the speaker’s lieutenants. Most members were just taught a lesson that you’re not going to get everything that you want. It was that kind of election.”"...


In 2013 GOP House Majority "Leader" Boehner continues to publicly nullify all elections in which a Republican won, silence voices of voters who successfully elected their representatives, void separation of powers granted by the US Constitution, and command subservience to the executive branch:

1/19/13, "A minority posture for House GOP," The Hill, by Hooper, Berman  

"House Republicans appeared to be coming to grips with a stark realization as they returned to Washington from a three-day retreat here — they have a majority in name only.

The party begins the 113th Congress with reduced numbers and confronting a popular president and an increased Democratic majority in the Senate. "...


7/17/14, "Boehner: House Has No Plans to Defund Unconstitutional Acts by Obama,", Brittany M. Hughes

"House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) indicated today that if President Barack Obama takes actions that exceed his constitutional authority, the House of Representatives has no plans to use its own constitutional authority to withhold funding from those actions."...


12/15/13, "Breaking The UniParty," Angelo Codevilla,
 "So long as the Uniparty exists, mere voters will have no way of affecting what the government does."  


John Boehner and his band have opted not "to use the constitutional power they have to refuse to appropriate money for Obamacare":

9/17/13, "The Obama-Boehner Project," Angelo M. Codevilla,

"The Republican Party owes its majority in the House of Representatives – and John Boehner his speakership thereof – to the American people’s dislike of Obamacare. Because the US Constitution is explicit that the US government may expend only funds appropriated by Congress, Obamacare has existed strictly at the sufferance of the House leadership since that majority took office in January 2011. But John Boehner and his chosen band have thwarted the majority of Republican congressmen’s desire to use the constitutional power they have to refuse to appropriate money for Obamacare."...

GOP has merged with Democrats:

2/20/13, As Country Club Republicans Link Up With The Democratic Ruling Class, Millions Of Voters Are Orphaned,” Angelo Codevilla, Forbes
“Increasingly the top people in government, corporations, and the media collude and demand submission as did the royal courts of old.”… 


Comment: It's fine if Republicans find their ideology compatible with Democrats'. They simply need to file paperwork making their Democrat status official.
