Sarah Palin Throws Down Gauntlet to GOP: Block Obama Amnesty Funds or Face ‘America’s Wrath’

In a post on her Facebook page late Wednesday evening, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin—the 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee—said that Republicans in Congress must block Obama’s amnesty and his “fundamental transformation of America” or face “America’s wrath” in the next elections.

“Grant me this use of America’s voice,” Palin asked her audience of millions of followers. “When you cut through all the ‘inside baseball’ stuff in this Omnibus Spending Bill that’s in front of Congress, you’re left with two cold hard facts: this bill doesn’t defund Obama’s amnesty (so he gets to reward lawbreakers with your tax dollars) and it adds to our dangerous, unsustainable debt.”

“It also breaks campaign promises made by quite a few of our incumbent politicians on both sides of the aisle,” Palin added. 

Hey, if you thought we wanted more of the same as we worked our butts off to get good folks elected in November, then why did we vote to oust liberals who got America into this mess in the first place? Guess what, GOP: our victory party is over and voters are wide awake and trusting you to keep your promises to America. Get a handle on your debt. Stop Obama’s amnesty to illegal aliens. Support our military. Bottom line: we elected you to stop Obama’s “fundamental transformation of America.” Do it – especially you Republicans who promised to do it. Or face America’s wrath next go ’round because an elephant never forgets.

Palin linked to two different news stories. The first is a Politico story that details how Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and incoming Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell differ greatly on how to handle this lame duck session of Congress.

The second story is a Breitbart News article on how the new House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, a Louisiana Republican, is in serious political jeopardy back home for his role in backing up Obama’s executive amnesty by providing material support for Speaker John Boehner’s 1,603-page, $1.1 trillion omnibus spending bill. Scalise took over in the whip slot this summer after now Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy moved into Eric Cantor’s slot, when now Rep. Dave Brat (R-VA) beat Cantor in a primary this year. 

The story discusses conservative U.S. Senate candidate Col. Rob Maness—who Palin backed in the lead-up to Louisiana’s Nov. 4 jungle primary election against now GOP senator-elect Bill Cassidy and Democratic incumbent Sen. Mary Landrieu, who just lost to Cassidy in the runoff. Maness lives in the heart of Scalise’s district, and while those close to him wouldn’t comment for the Breitbart News story questioning whether he’d run against Scalise, he’s a wildly popular conservative in the state who got more than 200,000 votes with almost no outside help and little money in the statewide Senate race.

Maness has since been successful in connecting with top GOP leaders in Louisiana, getting particularly close with Sen. David Vitter (R-LA), who used to represent Scalise’s House district years ago. Maness is also close with Gov. Bobby Jindal, a conservative who’s been calling on the Louisiana delegation to buck this omnibus spending bill and back efforts from Vitter and other conservatives to block Obama’s executive amnesty funding. Jindal also used to represent Louisiana’s First Congressional district before Scalise.

Scalise’s office hasn’t responded to a series of press requests from Breitbart News over the past couple weeks about why he’s backing the Boehner omnibus and whether he’d be working to whip votes for it, but a Wednesday night post from Politico confirmed that he is in fact supporting the bill that provides material support for Obama’s executive amnesty.

“The mood was tense in the Capitol Wednesday when GOP leaders started whipping the bill and Senate Democrats were unsure how many of their House counterparts would vote for the bill,” Politico’s Jake Sherman and John Bresnahan wrote. 

But Pelosi and Boehner have been in close contact. On Wednesday morning when they spoke, Boehner demurred when Pelosi asked how many Democratic votes he needed. That responsibility falls to House Majority Whip Steve Scalise of Louisiana, Boehner answered. Boehner warned Pelosi that if the large bill failed, he would have a short-term funding bill ready for immediate consideration. If Republican defections swell, Scalise could catch blame, but if the GOP posts better-than-expected numbers, he’ll start off the 114th Congress with a stronger hand.

Palin also backed Tea Party activist Katrina Pierson against House Rules Committee chairman Rep. Pete Sessions (R-TX) in a primary earlier this year. While Pierson—a first-time candidate who took a drubbing from the liberal media—lost, she did manage to get 36 percent of the vote after getting into the race late with little funding or outside help outside of Palin’s support. In the wake of Sessions’ work to help Boehner get this omnibus bill backing Obama’s amnesty to the finish line—and his likely vote for it on Thursday, should it actually come up for the vote if it doesn’t falter beforehand—Pierson has floated the possibility of running against him again in 2016 and has made appearances on major national media like Fox Business Network fueling speculation she’s getting ready for another run.

A vote to fund the executive amnesty is a vote for the executive amnesty.

Without defund language, the spending package is a vote for amnesty.

 

USA,

A vote to fund the executive amnesty is a vote for the executive amnesty. That’s the message Congress and the country needs to hear in the hours leading up to a vote on House GOP spending bills that would give the White House the money it needs to implement it’s executive amnesty.

Spread the word in all of your activism this week! Share the links, quotes, and excerpts below.

The GOP leadership’s spending package (as currently constructed) would enable:

    • The IRS to use billions of tax dollars to issue tax credits to unlawfully amnestied aliens;
    • The Social Security Administration to use tax dollars to issue Social Security numbers to unlawfully amnestied aliens, qualifying them for benefits;
    • The Department of Health and Human Services to use tax dollars to enroll unlawfully amnestied aliens in Medicare; and
    • The Department of Justice to use tax dollars to defend the President’s unconstitutional amnesty against court challenges.

 

This plan forces candidates who ran against President Obama’s executive amnesty to break their campaign promises. Rep. Mick Mulvaney of South Carolina expressed the frustration many Members have to the AP: Having said we’re going to do everything we can to stop this — and then to do nothing to stop it — really hurts.

Breitbart reports that the GOP leadership’s plan is beatable and highlights many efforts (from NumbersUSA, Eagle Forum, Heritage, Laura Ingraham, and CIS) to replace it with a better strategy:

…pass a short-term Continuing Resolution rather than a long term omnibus, and include language blocking funding for Obamas amnesty in it. If outgoing Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid can muster the votes to strip that language from the bill, or if Obama vetoes it after Reid fails to garner the votes, then the conservatives want the House to pass a short term CR until the new Republican congress, with GOP reinforcements, is sworn in in January. At that point, they’ll target Obamas amnesty funding before he can get the program off the ground…”
