The Obama Amnesty, threatened as early as this week, is bigger than the perfidy of one President—it’s a systemic failing of our form of government. Our ruling elite clearly has a positive interest in making life worse for the majority of people in the country and in actively degrading the concept of citizenship. Our democidal democracy is actually unmaking the American people. Obama’s Executive Amnesty is merely the final stroke that will sever the connection between the historic American nation and the government in Washington, D.C.
 
The only hope: the GOP/ GAP will become the explicit defender of the American majority’s interests via a National Conservative program of immigration restriction, pro-worker policies, and opposition to corporate exploitation. But this would mean overcoming the ideological bankruptcy of the Beltway Right—and the short-term pecuniary interests of the Republican Congressional leadership...
 
Significantly, there does not seem to be a consensus among Republican Party about what actually to do if and when Obama pulls the trigger on unilaterally legalizing almost five million law-breaking aliens.
 
GOP congressional leaders are discussing a series of short-term funding measures that would “create a forum to push back against the president, and, possibly, gain concessions. Republicans also are planning to file a lawsuit against the president over his use of executive authority, according to the lawmakers and aides.”...
 
But, needless to say, this approach concedes the initiative entirely to President Obama, who has already acknowledged that what he is proposing to do is unconstitutional.
 
Of course, the ultimate solution to such a blatant and criminal abuse of executive power is impeachment, which is indeed gaining acceptance in the mainstream but remains unmentionable on Capitol Hill.
 
However, the real question is whether the Congressional GOP leadership wants to stop Obama’s Amnesty at all. It seems more likely that they are interested in allowing Obama to go through with Amnesty on the theory that this will “get it behind” them, while they reap the political rewards of public outrage in 2016...
 
And the Beltway Right’s corporate backers, their bought shills, and the political consultants all still want Amnesty.
 
The result: the American Right is being set up for a fall. If Obama imposes his Amnesty on the American people, the Republican leadership will make some noise—but they are already shying away from even the bare minimum that would be necessary to actually stop Obama’s actions, namely, stopping funding and shutting down the government.
 
Instead, they will limit themselves to complaints, and position themselves for 2016 by telling the base about how loudly they protested the President’s actions.
 
In this, we can look to the ridiculous Rand Paul as an example—he spent the last few years shilling for Amnesty and now has the chutzpah to fundraise off his supposed restrictionist credentials...
 
What’s really at issue here is the failure of the American form of government. The Founding Fathers took for granted that the historic American nation would retain control over the country it founded. They couldn’t have anticipated an occupation government that would bring in helot labor as a demographic and electoral weapon against existing citizens. Nor could they have predicted a government that would actually devalue its own national identity for the same purpose. What has occurred is the seizure of power by what the late Sam Francis identified as a governing elite that has no stake in the perpetuation of its own society and that actually profits from social dysfunction.
 
An illegal and unconstitutional mass Amnesty represents the critical moment when the American government transfers its primary concern away from the historic American nation and towards the more compliant people who will replace them. Both the open contempt of the Main Stream Media towards American citizens, and the taunting by illegals who know the ostensible American President is on their side, indicate the recognition of this historic shift...
 
We actually have a system in place where the elite favors unmaking their own country.
 
The only immediate solution: the kind of grassroots rebellion that (as should be celebrated with patriotic pride) has repeatedly stopped Amnesty before—but, this time, one that goes beyond saving Conservatism Inc. from the consequences of its own stupidity.
 
It has to be framed as a kind of nationalist, patriotic movement in its own right that connects the immigration issue to income inequality, the parasitic political class, and a government that seems openly hostile towards the American majority...
