Open Borders Backlash, Supreme Shellacking, Bad News For Obama

 Gary Bauer, Contributing AuthorOpen Borders Backlash -  Monday Obama pledged to "go it alone" on immigration reform, and now left-wing Democrats are urging Obama to "go big." According to various reports, pro-amnesty advocates are calling on Obama to unilaterally rewrite the nation's immigration laws "to essentially legalize the millions of undocumented immigrants who would be eligible for work permits under the bill passed by the Senate last summer."

Nearly two-thirds of Americans already disapprove of the way Barack Obama is handling immigration. Unilaterally granting amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants would be politically explosive.

We have suggested recently that civil disobedience would become more likely as left-wing elites in politics, media and big business aggressively continue their mad rush to "fundamentally transform" America. You can only push a patient and tolerant people so far.

Yesterday we saw the first signs of a possible backlash against Obama's open borders policy in the small community of Murrieta, California. The federal government has tried twice to relocate illegal immigrants to a processing facility in Murrieta, but backed down after objections from local officials.

When the federal government ignored the people and tried to bus in more than 100 illegal immigrants yesterday, flag-waving citizens of Murrieta blocked the roads. The buses were forced to turn around. There have been similar, if less dramatic, episodes around the country, even in predominantly liberal communities like Baltimore.

Randon Lane, a Murrietta City Council member, commented, "We have money to take them from Texas, fly them to San Diego, bus them up to Murrietta, and then turn around and ship them off to some other place -- we have the money to do that -- we just don't have the money to secure our borders? So, yes, it seems very odd."

Murrieta Mayor Alan Long wrote in a statement, "Murrieta expects our federal government to enforce our laws, including the deportation of illegal immigrants caught crossing our borders, not disperse them into local communities." 

Millions of Americans share the outrage of Mayor Long and Councilman Lane. Unfortunately, Obama and his left-wing, pro-amnesty allies could care less, and the simmering frustration of the American people is beginning to boil over.

Civil disobedience tends to happen when government actions are seen as overbearing and unjust. There is often a second condition too: people engage in civil disobedience as a last resort when they see no countervailing power willing to confront the injustice.

People go to a town hall to yell about deficit spending when they fear their children's futures are being stolen and no one is stopping it. They stand with a rancher, march for marriage or block buses because they don't see a political party aggressively defending their rights, values and the sovereignty of their country.

Congressional Republicans would be better off if they stopped paying so much attention to D.C. lobbyists and the Chamber of Commerce, and paid more attention to their constituents back home!

A Supreme Shellacking - The Hill, a leading inside-the-Beltway publication, has a story today that begins: "President Obama has endured a painful Supreme Court term, suffering a series of bitter defeats at the hands of justices who, at times, took direct aim at his policies. … the White House found itself on the losing end of most of the term's biggest cases."

This is big news and you'd think more Republicans would be echoing this theme about Obama's rogue presidency.

Yesterday I complained that too few Republicans were championing the Hobby Lobby victory, allowing the left to dominate the airwaves, while some (like New Jersey's Chris Christie) were actively undermining it. I'm not alone in that frustration.

Here's an email I received yesterday from an attorney, and a loyal Republican voter, I have known for years:
"I am thrilled, as I presume you are, by the result in the Court yesterday.  I am just as mystified, however, by the thundering silence of the leadership of the Republican Party that is routinely lambasted for its imaginary 'war on women' as it fails to respond to the outright lies and distortions...  The claim that somehow the Supreme Court has ratified the denial of contraception to women, tantamount to a 'war,' is so repugnant and so grossly dishonest… Is the Republican Party once again going to stand silent; allow the Democrats to shamelessly lie; and, by remaining silent, snatch defeat from the jaws of victory??"

There was more to his message, but I think you understand his frustration. In fact, I know you do. I get messages like this every day. The party leadership had better get a clue.

More Bad News For Obama -   A new Quinnipiac poll asked registered voters to identify the worst president America has had since World War II. Whom did they choose? Not Jimmy Carter (8%). Not Richard Nixon (13%). Not even George W. Bush (28%). Thirty three percent of voters said Barack Hussein Obama has earned that dubious distinction. In fact, one newspaper recently apologized for endorsing Obama.

Voters also expressed a lot of buyer's remorse. Asked whether the country would have been better off or worse off if Mitt Romney had won the 2012 election, 45% said America would have been better off, while just 38% said America would have been worse off.

By the way, when asked which president since World War II was the best, Ronald Wilson Reagan finished first with 35%.

More Nuggets From The News: 
  • The border may be open, but the government wants health care workers to shut their mouths. Fox News reports that medical workers and doctors treating illegal immigrants at the border have been threatened with arrest if they warn the public about the health risks they are witnessing.
  • More than 50 VA whistleblowers have lodged complaints alleging retaliation for their attempts to expose wrong-doing.

    Corruption and incompetence appear to be endemic throughout the bureaucracy. Two weeks ago, Suzanne Chase received a letter notifying her that the VA finally had an appointment available for her husband, Doug. There is just one problem: Douglas Chase passed way from brain cancer TWO YEARS AGO.
  • A new audit highlights colossal problems with Obamacare. For example, as the government attempts to process what it claims are 8 million sign-ups, it reports finding nearly 3 million "inconsistencies" in the data, such as infants being reported as "incarcerated."
Moreover, nearly half of these inconsistencies concern an individual's "Citizenship/national status/lawful presence."
