Around 1:30 a.m. Saturday, there was a seismic shift in the U.S. Congress. As the Senate deadlocked over what to do about several expiring provisions of the Patriot Act, it became clear that political momentum had moved away from surveillance and secrecy toward freedom and privacy... Continue here.
For conservatives concerned with America’s sovereignty and border security, there have been some setbacks since November. President Barack Obama ignored the wave election that overwhelmingly rejected his and his party’s stance on illegal immigration, and enacted a lawless amnesty scheme by fiat... Continue here.
During the 2014 midterm elections, Republicans across the country campaigned hard on opposing executive amnesty by President Obama, and securing the country’s borders.

A bill created behind closed doors, of course, that congressmen won’t even have time to read. Make no mistake, this bill DOES fund Obama's executive amnesty, and so much more. We’ve not seen a "Lame Duck Congress” these last several days. ...
Employees at a company that received a $1.2 billion Obamacare contract from the federal government are literally being paid to do nothing.
