FULL TITLE: "Obama Is Preparing To Make One Of The Boldest Moves Of His Presidency — And It Could Stretch The Scope Of Executive Power"

By the end of the summer, President Barack Obama will make what some activists and legal experts say could be the "boldest move" of his presidency as he prepares to move without Congress on immigration reform.

The coming executive actions to change immigration policy could become the defining moment in a second term marred by congressional gridlock. A mid fierce debate over the crisis along the U.S.-Mexico border they also could set up a potential political firestorm

He is pushing the envelope of Executive Decrees and lawlessness so that the House of Representatives will be forced to impeach him. This will be the issue he uses to bring out his base in 2014 to save the Senate.

I would love to see him impeached, but only after we have a Senate which would actually take it up and vote on it. Just impeaching him would only serve their interests, not the interests of the country.

On the other hand, defunding him would be another excellent option for this kind of malfeasance.

Exactly. The GOP has no clue how to lead or how to govern. All I hear from the GOP is whining and no action. Screw 'em.

Seems like political insanity to do this before the election.

The country already is in an uproar over this issue, and not in favor of amnesty. Even if Obama will do this as a leftist, it’s very hard to see why he will do it before November.

As with all aspects of the democrat coup in progress, Obama has engaged in zero honest public debate or discussion of this issue. He will just do what his racist version of communism demands.

That’s a nice thought but hardly reality, Unfortunately Holder and 80% of democrats and the media will support him and his declarations and that will be it. Nothing will be done. A bunch of griping and moaning and maybe a few people actually protesting him that will be ignored for the most part. The largest protest in US history was a right to life march or congregation in ‘97 in Washington I think if I remember correctly with around a million for real and it was ignored by the media and actually a gay and lesbian assemblage of freaks from the previous week was given all the coverage that weekend.

You should have seen the immediate response from the obama crowd in one houston neighborhood where sheila jackson lee led a group surveying an old high school to be used to house the children pouring across the border. (whew, that was a long sentence) - the reaction was “what about our children? They have needs that aren’t being met and we are spending money on others?”..... while I agreed with her, it was partially a “not in our backyard” mentality which is rampant among democrats.

Impeachment is not going to happen. What we need is Egypt style demonstrations until the military gets fed up and removes him, them, all of them.

He cannot make them citizens which would be permanent.

DACA just gives them work permits which are temporary and have to be renewed.

The silver lining is this will get people off their couches and into the streets for protests and into the voting booth.

Nothing was done in response to DACA. In fact, Reps approved the backdoor amnesty. They just didn’t like how he did it, which is why Cantor was working on his own version of a DACA called the “Kids Act.” No doubt this was seen as a green light by the WH. When you reward something, you get more of it.

IMHO, there should be lots of TV ads showing Sheila Jackson Lee making her comment — again and again — against a background that shows hordes of non-child “immigrants” overwhelming our border. Just pay her an appearance fee.

IMHO, all Americans should be offended by Obama’s belief that “INVASION is how we REALLY “change” America!”

The guy's just begging for Republican threats of impeachment and he'll raise the ante just before the elections. He knows it will generate huge campaign donations and get his base out to the polls to likely prevent a Republican Senate win.

Republicans should stop all talk of impeachment until they control the Senate. After that they should impeach and convict him.

And if the House doesn’t impeach him for doing that, then in one fell swoop, Obama renders both the Republican party and the U.S. Congress irrelevant forever, thereby establishing his cherished fascist dictatorship for all Presidents to come, presumably Democrat Presidents if enough impoverished border invaders are settled in key red states such as Texas.

Truth be told, if we had ANY semblance of an opposition party, those types of ads would be running 24/7, across the land. The Dim seats should be EASY pickin’s...in normal land.

The few (small) groups who try to run these ads a.) can’t afford a large market, and b.) get turned down by many stations.

Whaddya do?

DACA just gives them work permits which are temporary and have to be renewed.

560,000 have been approved so far for DACA with an estimated 1.8 million eligible. They have been given work permits, SSNs, and the ability to travel in and out of the country. Many states are giving DACA recipients driver's licenses and in-state tuition. You can be up to the age of 30 to receive DACA. Moreover, the illegal parents of DACA recipients will not be deported. The approval rate for DACA recipients is 99.5%.

Does anyone believe that the DACA recipients will ever be deported? This is de facto amnesty. There is no political will to reverse it. Renewal is virtually automatic.

The silver lining is this will get people off their couches and into the streets for protests and into the voting booth.

One would hope so, but I have my doubts. The MSM, Dems, and GOPe support amnesty. They will mildly object to the means, but they agree with the ends. George Will and Charles Krauthammer commented that although they agree with the legalization of the 12 million illegal aliens, Obama should not do it that way. They blame the Tea Party for being unreasonable when it comes to comprehensive immigration reform. They see it as inevitable. So how many people will be in the streets objecting to what is a constitutional crisis? I fear not many.

The leadership of the unions and minority groups support amnesty, i.e., allowing the lawbreakers to stay and work here. We bring in 1.1 million LEGAL IMMIGRANTS A YEAR, mostly poor and uneducated. There is no call from these groups to reduce legal immigration despite the fact that minorities are hurt the worst by it.

REally? How so?

The unions are licking their chops, just waiting to chomp on all of those newly unionized workers’ dues. And the FreeSh*!™ folks are licking their chops thinking about all of the new taxes going towards their couch sitting *fees*.

You have to also consider that those who don’t live near a border state have NOT been seeing the overwhelming invasion we have lived with. Almost daily on Houston news they show a home that has been used to imprison upwards of 60-80 men and women until family members pay off the coyotes for bringing them into the US. It is rampant - and then we feel sorry for those who have been held like animals - who then go out and drive drunk without a license or insurance and run when they kill and American on the road.....it is unreal

If he does anything we win.

First of all, anything done by executive action, can be undone by only executive action.

2nd of all, if he does anything he will enrage all conservatives and a large percentage of Democrats, leading to a landslide for us in November.

As long as we don't push impeachment until after November, he will be handing us a gift.

So a poll came out today showing only 27% agree with his handling of immigration,now he is going to give millions of them amnesty?
That should be something with the midterms coming up.
The voters in Kentucky are going to vote for the Democrat because she got the endorsement of the United Mine workers?
She is a freakin Democrat you boobs,if Harry Reid is still majority leader in the Senate because you elected a Democrat then you can kiss your jobs goodbye,Harry Reid is going to change his mind for her? What a bunch of dolts,you deserve to lose your jobs,idiots

Call for Congress to do its constitutional duty and impeach Obama. He won’t be convicted, but someone has to defend the Constitution. Members of Congress have sworn to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution. This goes beyond partisan politics. It is a constitutional crisis that threatens the very survival of the Republic.
