Obama to Boehner: You’ve got until the end of the year to pass an immigration bill or else I order executive amnesty

posted at 11:31 am on November 10, 2014 by Allahpundit

Heads he wins, tails you lose. As Gabe Malor says, this deadline is completely unserious: It’d be bad enough for Republicans to pass a weak immigration bill next year, but that at least would have the virtue of giving the GOP’s new crop of senators a crack at voting on it. Trying to sneak a bill through the lame-duck session, before Cory Gardner, Joni Ernst, and the rest of the freshmen have a say, would mean all-out war at this point between Boehner, McConnell, and the base. Joe Biden at least seems to understand that. That’s why he floated a mid-February deadline at Friday’s White House summit with the GOP before Obama gave him a death stare that shut him up. I think Obama understands it too, actually. His ultimatum here is likely born not out of ignorance of Boehner’s predicament but a new determination to make Republicans pay politically after they swamped him last Tuesday. Issuing executive amnesty so soon after a landslide is an act of supreme defiance of the election results, in keeping with last week’s “I’m listening to all the people who didn’t vote” press conference. And it’s also a middle finger to congressional Democrats who spent the last six months giving him the “Barack who?” treatment on the stump. If executive amnesty puts them in a tough spot too, screw ’em. Besides, the only Dems left in Congress at this point are in states or districts so blue that they won’t lose in 2016 no matter how crazy he gets. He’s now fully entered the YOLO phase of his presidency.

Actually, maybe Obama doesn’t understand Boehner’s predicament. Here’s a tidbit from WSJ’s mini-bombshell on Friday about secret talks on immigration between the White House and the House GOP over the past year.

Mr. Obama offered Mr. Boehner what he saw as a compromise: The White House would defer executive action on immigration until after the summer to give the speaker maneuvering room, a deal Mr. Obama confirmed in his Wednesday news conference.

In the discussion, however, he followed up with his go-to talking point in dealings with Mr. Boehner: “There will never be another Republican president again if you don’t get a handle on immigration reform.”

Mr. Boehner resented getting advice from a Democratic president on how to make Republicans a viable political force. What he wanted was more specific: A strategy to build a coalition in the House that could pass a bill.

It became increasingly common, aides said, for Mr. Boehner to hang up the phone with Mr. Obama and sigh: “He just doesn’t get it.”

That has a ring of truth. Sounds like Boehner was asking him to deliver a certain number of House Democrats to help support a deal that would surely be opposed by House conservatives, but influencing Congress isn’t Obama’s thing. Remember when Harry Reid asked him for help twisting Mitch McConnell’s arm on presidential appointments and Obama waved him off? Reid and his staff have allegedly been stewing about that to this day. Or maybe this has less to do with O’s relationship with Congress than the fact that the guy simply doesn’t know how to horse-trade, a theory floated lately by commentators on both the left and the right recently. But now you see the beauty of executive amnesty: No matter how terrible you are at building majorities in Congress to support your agenda, you can always play your unconstitutional trump card and get your agenda enacted that way. I wonder which is the chicken and which is the egg there, in fact. Did O turn to executive orders because he’s a terrible negotiator? Or is he a terrible negotiator because he has no incentive to be a better one with that trump card in his back pocket?

Whatever the answer, if you believe WaPo, he’s eyeing an amnesty of around five million people, somewhere between the three million number that amnesty shills fear and the eight to 10 million figure that they’re hoping for. Watching these two (short) clips via the Corner, I’m amazed that Obama makes no attempt to explain why immigration is some sort of extraordinary problem that requires an extraordinary executive solution. The fear among liberals who are jittery about executive amnesty is that it’ll set a precedent that can be exploited by his Republican successor. E.g., President Ted Cruz could decide to lower income tax rates unilaterally, by executive order, while Congress bickers about tax reform. You would think, then, that O would go out of his way to explain why amnesty isn’t like taxes or health care or anything else but rather something unique and therefore without precedential value. Instead, Obama makes an expansive argument: His point here, essentially, is that there’s no real harm in him acting unilaterally because Congress can always pass a bill superseding his order. In that case, there’s nothing stopping President Cruz from installing a flat tax or suspending ObamaCare or anything else the GOP wants to do. So long as there are enough Republicans in Congress to deny Democrats a veto-proof majority in both chambers, his actions can’t be undone until a Democrat replaces him in the White House. The One’s setting an unbelievably terrible precedent — and making no effort to limit it. Wow.

The FACT is he does not have the Constitutional authority to grant ‘anmnesty’. No where – NO WHERE – in the Constitution does it grant this narcissistic dictator-wannabe the authority to do this. Forget ‘violation of Constitution and Law’…if Obama attempts/attempted to go through with this threat it would be tatamount to TREASON!.

Mimzey on November 10, 2014 at 3:20 PM

‘Immigration Reform’, at this point, would be:
1. Seal the border IMMEDIATELY – nothing else until the reported 1,200 Illegals a day crossing into this country STOPS! Granting ‘amnesty’ while the borders are wide open and claiming you will stop it after ‘amnesty’ has been granted is like bailing water out of a boat with a hole in it, refusing to fix the hole until all the water is out of the boat — It won’t EVER happen!
2. ENFORCE THE EXISTING IMMIGRATION LAWS! ALL OF THEM! Obama has not only ignored existing law but has acted illegally to create UN-Constitutional ‘rights’ for illegals that only apply to THEM – not US citizens. he did this by ordering the DOJ NOT to detain, arrest, charge, sentence, jail, or deport any illegal for any crime in the US (against US citizens) less than a ‘felony’, a ‘right’ not afforded to US citizens. It is documented that he has allowed violent criminals and gangs into the country, has illegally supplied drug cartels with guns, allowed them into the country, and even has had the US Government involved in Human Trafficking of persons by helping bring illegals into the country. He has created a Humanitarian Crisis that has overwhelmed local and state agencies, distributed illegals throughout the country – into communities without notifying them they were coming, and has jeopardized lived by releasing violent illegals convicted of crimes into communities without telling them 1st either. KEEPING HIS OATH OF OFFICE, ENFORCING THE RULE OF LAW, WOULD BE A MAJOR IMMIGRATION REFORM RIGHT NOW!

The vast majority of those here illegally, don’t want to go through the process of becoming a citizen. They want to be granted citizenship without having to do the work.

They just want to be made a citizen so they can start sucking off the Obama/Government teet. Forty million new welfare recipients, 90% of which will no doubt vote DimocRat.

Quite right. He keeps talking about “the steps” he will take, but can’t actually say what they are. He has a phone and a pen, but he doesn’t know what to say. A real reporter would have asked him exactly what he plans to do. He doesn’t know.

BTW, in his typically classless way, he pantomimes his private conversation with “John” Boehner, trying to sound light and friendly. Now, the next time he picks up his golden phone to talk to Boehner, “John” is going to think “is this going to be on TV too?”

Immigration is a big loser for Obama and a significant downer for any Republican who thinks we need reform before enforcement. No compromise is possible because Obama will not permit enforcement and Republicans can’t pass anything without it. So the best strategy may be to let Obama continue impaling himself on his inability to pay off La Raza and others who want the US to fail.

Let him do it and then don’t give the bum a penny for implementation. Willfully spending funds not appropriated for the purpose is a violation of the anti deficiency act. If that new left wing Obama stooge that was just nominated for attorney general won’t act then he must be sued and stopped by other judicial actions. The little dictator must not be allowed to get away with this transgression.

His amnesty wouldn’t hold up in court. It would set a precedent that even the liberal justices couldn’t live with. A president could refuse to enforce all congresses laws and then amnesty the folks who broke those laws. Would make congress meaningless.

He’ll do whatever he thinks the (R)’s will let him get away with. And history tells us the (R)’s will let him do whatever he wants.

If the (R)’s pass a huge spending bill, and he knows he already has the funding for whatever he wants to do, he’ll do the whole truckload.

Sure, the (R)’s will whine and moan and decry it. They’ll put up a heck of a show of outrage to the cameras. But they won’t actually DO a [email protected] thing about it.

Meople on November 10, 2014 at 4:18 PM

So Obama thinks he still has the Republicans over a barrel.

The Republicans won’t have the nerve to impeach the first (half)black President because the backlash would be enormous. (mostly true)

Sooooo… go after his support instead. Call Valerie Jarrett to testify in Congress… in continuous 12-hour sessions for weeks on end. Catch her in a moment of perjury (you know it would happen) and throw her in jail.

No one will care that some administrator was caught in perjury. Obama’s supporters only care about Obama. But if Val is truly the evil troll pulling Obama’s strings… the individual narcissist would suddenly find himself very, very alone in Washington.

So what to do then? Start poking him. Anyone else think he will start breaking down and showing it?

Things are going exactly how Conservatives said they would. We turn out to elect the backstabbing establishment (R)’s and we end up at the exact same place we would have been in even if the (R)’s didn’t get the Senate. Maybe even faster this way.

We all said the GOPe would rollover and let Obola do his amnesty. They will likely do exactly that.

As a Conservative, if they let Obola do amnesty, and refuse to take steps to stop him, such as defunding, I’ll never vote for another R again. Ever.

Trying to sneak a bill through the lame-duck session, before Cory Gardner, Joni Ernst, and the rest of the freshmen have a say, would mean all-out war at this point between Boehner, McConnell, and the base.

Cory Gardner supports illegal alien amnesty. I don’t feel particularly reassured knowing he will be “joining the conversation.”

http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2014/10/06/Gardner-Runs-Left-On-Immigration

http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2014/08/29/Cory-Gardner-s-Immigration-Betrayal-Not-Looking-So-Hot-Right-Now

Rep. Cory Gardner (R-CO) attacked his Democratic opponent for what he described as voting “to make undocumented individuals felons” in a debate Monday, underscoring how he has bucked the trend of GOP Senate candidates seizing on hawkish immigration positions amidst a border crisis and threats from President Obama to extend amnesty unilaterally.

Democratic Sen. Mark Udall (D-CO) “voted to make undocumented individuals felons, even those people who assist them, including what could be their schoolteacher. Voted to make them felons,” Gardner said.
Gardner also came out in favor of what he called “earned status” as “part” of comprehensive immigration reform when asked whether he favored extending legal status to illegal immigrants, and that “Ultimately I think the DREAM Act is going to be part of the solution.”


In 2012, Hispanic voters made up 14 percent of all voters in Colorado, according to the Pew Research Center. Gardner, who carried a conservative voting record in the House, has steadily moved left on the issue after entering the Senate campaign against Udall.
In August, he voted against a House bill that sought to prevent Obama from extending executive amnesty to illegal immigrants.

I support people like Jeff Sessions who are fighting to stop amnesty and aren’t working to make a deal to help pass it while dressing it up as “reform” in order to make it sound good to voters.

bluegill on November 10, 2014 at 5:13 PM

I hope that Boehner and McConnell learn from Marco Rubio’s stupidity on immigration and do not stand alongside uber liberals like Barack Obama and Chuck Schumer against the Conservatives and Republicans who put them in power.

Were I Speaker of the House, I would have countered:
“You have until the end of the year to resign and vacate 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, or else I will order impeachment trials.”

But I’m not, and the one who is, will likely just say:
“Yes Master”. “My other Masters at the Chamber of Commerce have so ordered already. Thy wills, be done”

Yeah, I think that’s what it eventually will take. It will take enough people dumping the GOP and their DimocRat establishment leadership, and voting for a different party.

It won’t technically be a third party though, more like a true second party. Since on amnesty, among other things, you have Obola and the Dims plus the establishment GOP against Conservatives and Tea Party.

I don’t know, the past two midterms and state government beatdowns tell me that smaller, less intrusive government, Constitutional Conservatism and the prospects of cutting spending/lowering taxes is pretty darn strong.

Given that the above is all the Tea Party is, and not an actual political party, those Conservative principles are still strong. These items plus gutting ObamaCare and stopping Obama’s amnesty are what each and every (R) ran and won massively on just a week ago.

I was one of those occasional commenters who was worried about obama’s executive order amnesty. After the elections I’m not so worried about the EO happening this year. It’s got to be a bluff. I don’t think his party will stand for it. But 7 years ago I didn’t think the dems could go as far left as they did so maybe … but I can’t imagine how they’d spin an EO after that election.

What I am worried about is the Rs will use the EO bluff in order to pass their own amnesty. AND I KNOW THERE WILL BE VOICES HERE and throughout the GOPersphere who will use that exact logic

“You can’t expect to get all you want. We need to compromise in order to avoid the EO. Amnesty will be better done by us then the dems…” Even though they won a huge election and have both houses they will use this logic. Lots of writers and posters here will use that logic. In the end I’m worried that boehner,graham,mconnel will use this EO in concert with obama in order to get amnesty.

BTW is traffic down at this site? There are so few comments. Even during the run up to the elections which is when the HA comments spike it was sort of low key. Maybe it’s part of the general national malaise. I hope they can figure out how to jump start the site again. I like HA when there is a ton of activity.

They’re NOT inevitable. The establishment (R)’s along with the Dims are actively fighting to maintain our current course into economic oblivion. They’re both waging war against anyone and everyone that dares to support Conservative principles.

Why do think the mythical “Tea Party” is nearly as hated as Congress right now? It’s been an all out, concerted effort by both (R)’s and (D)’s to demonize and blame the Tea Party, whoever that is, for literally everything that’s wrong in Washitton. As if the few “Tea Party” supporting Congressmen and women have enough power to do anything at all in that cesspool.

Even now, just a week after each and every (R) running for office, and winning, ran on a campaign of solid Conservative planks. They’re already reverting back to their business as usual bent.

Mexicanos better think twice about what they’re doing, recreating the shiitehole they left behind isn’t the smart way to do things.

So this pen and phone threat is simply a means of having illegals contribute to the SS funds (with their phony cards) in order to stave the inevitable collapse of the Ponzi scheme? Obysmal, those illegals take more than they will ever contribute to the system.

onlineanalyst on November 10, 2014 at 6:30 PM

he knows no one the gop elects will have the guts, or will, to repeal obamacare or stop amnesty.

renalin on November 10, 2014 at 6:33 PM

The GOP doesn’t think that amnesty is a bad idea.

DFCtomm on November 10, 2014 at 5:50 PM

I think the GOP (particularly establishment guys) think this way only because they have been led to believe that the majority of Americans do as well.

Othniel on November 10, 2014 at 6:43 PM

Hera on November 10, 2014 at 1:31 PM

All excellent points!

Obysmal wants to flood the labor market with illegals at the same time that his delayed-until-after-the-elections health-care premiums smack the middle class upside the head? These are perfect Cloward-Piven instigations for civil instability.

onlineanalyst on November 10, 2014 at 6:53 PM

Is Obama insane or just evil? Flip a coin.

claudius on November 10, 2014 at 3:28 PM

They are not mutually exclusive.

It doesn’t seem wise to threaten those who hold the purse strings.

sorrowen on November 10, 2014 at 4:44 PM

It’s not, so wisdom doesn’t have anything to do with it.

Obama is insane and cracking under the strain of recent political developments. I mean, he’s in China wearing a pimp suit and chewing gum at formal events.

The way to move a creature like Obama is to to make it more psychologically expensive to do the wrong things. Don’t do things that will allow him and his accolytes in the media to feed his internal narrative.

Obama’s delusional self-concept consists of such things as: Arbiter of Truth; Racist Victim; Defender of the 2/3; Defender of the World Against America. Obama did not become president to faithfully execute the laws, he sees his higher purpose only in these terms.

You can deter Obama by psychologically threatening him with something that will hurt his purpose more than an executive amnesty would help. We’ve already seen him throw amnesty under the bus a number of times in the past six years for other things that were of higher priority to him. That might be done again if the GOP leadership is adroit enough to push the right nerves.

Impeachment is out — it makes Obama a victim, a martyr, nukes the site from orbit for all other issues, and would consolidate the gains he has already made as much as possible.

The key to unraveling Obama psychologically and politically lies in procedurisms that neuter him and are difficult for liberals everywhere to sloganize against.

Smartly-placed shots to the kidneys, the liver, the ribs will not just hurt him but have him flinching in a way that makes his pathology obvious to everyone, even MSNBC. If McConnell and Boehner are savvy enough, they have it within their power to orchestrate punches and feints that send him to the canvass.

Obama is nothing but a weakling and a coward who gets his opponents to throw themselves with their own weight. If he is convinced there is no daylight, he will resign his office and try to mind trick the country into a narrative of His Metaphysical Greatness — Obama sacrificed himself for our sins. If he cannot leave the undying legacy of Obamacare and Amnesty, he could at least reap some satisfaction by replacing George Washington on the quarter.

Younggod on November 10, 2014 at 7:20 PM

Younggod on November 10, 2014 at 7:20 PM That’s why I think the purse should be used. He can sign exec orders all day but they are useless if he lacks the funding. Again that would take away the one tool he has to abuse away. I also support defunding the EPA by basically forgetting to include its funding. The IRS should be futher defunded as well.

sorrowen on November 10, 2014 at 7:25 PM

Call his bluff. Tell him to do it now and the congress will write new laws that revoke the status and with a veto proof majority.

In the meantime all the states with Republican Governors should refuse to follow the order.

He wants a constitutional crisis, he can bring it and he can own it and then we’ll see what kind of legacy he ends up with.

Skywise on November 10, 2014 at 8:04 PM

The manchild is demanding Congress pass an immigration bill before the end of 2014? Does he think we don’t know everything changes with the new Congress? He really does think the American public are just too stupid!

lonestar1 on November 10, 2014 at 8:39 PM

Defund the Failure.

Keep it simple.

profitsbeard on November 10, 2014 at 8:41 PM

Repeating what I said on Friday:

“Let me have my way with you, and nobody gets hurt…”

Sounds like a rapist.

This election was about “No means No!”

ITguy on November 7, 2014 at 2:21 PM

ITguy on November 10, 2014 at 11:41 AM

Another example of Leftist delusional ideology.
NO only means NO if a Dem says it to a Pub.

“Rape is always legal in the first person — our rape; it is only in the third person — their rape — that it is illegal.”

AesopFan on November 10, 2014 at 8:49 PM

An ultimatum from Dear Leader and Big Bro O to his ‘Fellow Americans’. Nice.

Note he never issued an ultimatum to the Taliban. Hell, he may even end up giving some of them amnesty, unintentionally. Some of the ones that are probably here illegally.

farsighted on November 10, 2014 at 8:51 PM

The Pubs need to make it clear that if he acts outside of the law… it’s not law. So whatever he does and however much he is able to get away with.. it’s still not law and the law will be upheld by the next Republican President.

JellyToast on November 10, 2014 at 8:53 PM

Wow, Allah! What did you expect of Obama? He is always in character:

Bad character 24/7.

The next two years will be fun only if the Republicans have a backbone.

And they don’t have one.

I stumbled onto a radio talk show host the other day, have no idea who he was, but he said of the 8 million Hispanics eligible to apply for American citizenship last year only 850K did. So what exactly do these people want?

Cindy Munford on November 10, 2014 at 3:19 PM

They want all the “stuff” they can get, they want to send all the money they get, too, to another nation, they don’t want to pay taxes, identify themselves to anyone but their own people, they don’t want our flag, they just want the USA to pay and let them buy a truck and leave them alone.

Lourdes on November 11, 2014 at 5:44 AM

So what exactly do these people want?

Cindy Munford on November 10, 2014 at 3:19 PM

It’s the biggest insult to most of us here in the USA, that “these people” don’t want accountability for themselves, but they do want to use the USA as they will without any intervention or penalty.

If they wanted citizenship, they’d have come here legally. They come to the USA illegally because they’re not after accountability, they’re after a quick fix for their wants.

People don’t break in, sneak in or stay here under false pretenses when they want to represent the USA as a citizen.

Lourdes on November 11, 2014 at 5:47 AM

The moron has only drawn another red line for himself.
Between now and Obama’s self imposed deadline, the Republicans should continue to lay out the case that an executive order on amnesty would be profoundly toxic to the nation.
When Obama’s deadline comes, he will have only two options: issue an extremely toxic executive order or back down.

justltl on November 11, 2014 at 9:13 AM

If the GOP smart. They will call his bluff. Blackmail and thug poltics are not the way you run a great nation. Maybe that how you run chicago but not the usa.

gwhh on November 11, 2014 at 9:58 AM

If the GOP had a pair I would not have become an independent. If the GOP had a pair their leadership would inform Obama that if he pulls a stunt like that he will be impeached. I know GOP leadership is an oxymoron, but one can always wish for men rather than Johnnie Boner and Bitch McConnell.

mcgilvra on November 11, 2014 at 10:57 AM

Don’t negotiate an ultimatum. Repudiate and nullify.

Jumpintimmy on November 11, 2014 at 2:36 PM

If he continues to throw congress under the bus, just perhaps they could get revenge by overriding a presidential veto on the Obamacare repeal. It is not impossible with the law sinking fast under it’s own weight and the people and businesses are hurting with this illegal law.

Amazingoly on November 11, 2014 at 2:41 PM

Just heard on Limbaugh’s show that Boehner wants to work with Reid to fully fund everything 0bama wants, through next September, by the end of this month.

He wants to do that, rather than just doing the usual Continuing Resolution (current one expiring in a month) to fund it until the next House and newly republican Senate can actually take over, design their own budget, and use ‘the power of the purse’ to fight 0bamunism.

Traitor Boehner wants to cripple the power of his own body to fight against the despotic fool who is destroying the nation. If the next Congress keeps this idiot as Speaker, we will all know that the GOP hates us peasants.

And of course that douche McConnell has already promised that there will never be a defunding of 0bama’s agenda, so we already knew that we are screwed as long as he is GOP’s Senate ‘leader’.

LegendHasIt on November 11, 2014 at 2:50 PM

Where the heck is the SCOTUS? They are very quiet with this dictator in the White House.

Since his party’s shellacking his ego still deludes him into thinking he is in charge of SOMETHING. What that SOMETHING is is anything that comes into his empty mind.

He reminds me of an employee who tried his hardest but could not move forward, because instructions or suggestions on how to complete a task went into his mind and bounced around until it fell out, and failure was the result.

As his supervisor I took him aside one day and instructed hime that when he had conversations with anyone, me especially, he was to hold his left hand over his left ear. When the conversation was over he was allowed to depart after a tow minutes of silence.

After 6 months, our senior officer invited us into his office for a conversation. The senior officer had noticed this Airman’s strange habit of holding his left hand over his left ear when talking with others.

I was asked, if I knew what was taking place and I acknowledged yes sir. We are engaged in a new training technique. Asked to explain in more detail I told our superior that the Airman was a great worker when he fully understood what he was to do. My technique was a means of helping the Airman with fully understanding what he was was instructed – because if he held his hand over one ear whatever we told him did not fall out until it had sufficient time to sink in.

The President, outgoing Speaker Reid and Rep. Pelosi should try this technique for learning.
