I am taking a contrarian view to that of most of my friends in that I think the woman should have resigned from her position if she couldn’t abide by what has become the Law of the Land, onerous as it may be. Once resigned, actively pursue getting the law changed to her liking.
She is being paid by the government to insure that its laws are faithfully adhered to. She may NOT decide WHICH laws she wishes to uphold any more than a policeman on the street!
Tell that to the president.
She was elected and given this, it is likely she would be reelected. If removed from office (for having the wrong religion?!) it is likely a similar person would be elected in her place because taht is the sentiment of The People.

The 14th Amendment was NOT written to accommodate ILLEGAL immigrant’s children born on US soil. It was aimed at the slave population of the time as slaves were not considered ‘citizens’ as such (See Article I, Section 2 of the Constitution). Most of whom (if not all) were born in the US and were to be considered full citizens along with any future progeny.
I CAN agree the children born to illegals are ipso facto, citizens.
Their parents ARE NOT, thus are subject to deportation like any other law breaker.
Granted, the children pay the price of having to return from whence they came, but are well within their rights to claim citizenship when/if they become of age and can make the informed decision to do so.
Very good historical perspective. PP is right up there with Hitler, Marx, Lenin, Pol Pot, Mao, Ho Chi Minh, Idi Amin, Ayatolla Khomeini, Talad Pasha, and Baby Doc Duvalier.

THIS IS IN HOUSTON, TEXANS!!!
Time for the Governor/Attorney General/Texas Ranger to SHUT THIS FRAPPIN’ PLACE DOWN!!!
It’s not hard to find, people. It’s on the Gulf Freeway South near the UofH, between SR-288 and South Loop 610 with a huge Double “P” flag flying over it along side a Texas flag which should be taken down.
I know exactly where it is. PP we are coming for you!

Actions speak louder that words, governor!
Just how long did you allow three US citizens WHO LEGALLY OWNED FIREARMS be incarcerated in durance vile before finally being pressured into doing something?
Your very actions condemn you as anti-gun and now you’re flopping and gasping like the landed RINO fish you really are.
Go home to Trenton, Guv, We in ‘flyover’ country have you pegged for what you are: A back eastie Rockefeller Republican, which we really don’t need.

Notice the Rogue’s Gallery of Republican establishment RINO names defending McConnell?
Ashamed to say Texas’ Cornyn is at the front of the list. The Alfa Hotel won’t even defend a fellow Texan! We shoulda dumped his ass the last primary!
Keep it up, Senator Cruz! You MUST be doing something right if the crybabies are out in full voice.

Yeah and she and her minions in the MSM are the ones sowing it.

If ‘our friends’ the Turks are attacking the Kurds, the Kurds MUST be doing something right.
Remember when the Turks wouldn’t allow our troops through their territory to attack Iraq in the take down of Saddam in ’03? They were deathly afraid we’d arm the Kurds on our way through to Baghdad from the north, thus the added 3,000 mile detour to Basra for the siege from the south.
We, if we were really serious abut the war on radical Islam, SHOULD be arming the Kurds.
THEY DAMN WELL FIGHT!!!

The ‘Long Knives’ of the RNC are gonna decimate Cruz.
The Back Eastie RINOs can’t stand the heat of TRUTH!

I have a problem with this taking place in the Senate.
All such legislation must have its beginning in the House, the keeper of the governmental purse.
If the bill is in conference, though, then the Senate may defund/delete that particular line item which means the entire bill has to go back to the House, sans PP $$$, for re-approval by floor vote.
This maybe a good start but I cannot see the House going along with it. Or if they do, Obama has his ‘Veto’ pen.
Is this a part of the Continuing Resolution legislation agreed to by Boehner and McConnell back in January? If so, the PP funding may by a done deal and, for all intents and purposes, untouchable.
READ YOUR ERASED-HISTORY!!! IF [ANY] BILL WITHOUT-CHANGES PASSES HOUSE AND SENATE--[T W I C E ], IT [AUTOMATICALY] BECOMES LAW W/O PRES.-SIGNATURE!!

The House, where all funding is created, is the ‘Grand Jury’ of government and as such, responsible for indicting criminals in the Executive.
If they, the House, have so much ‘evidence’ concerning malfeasance in the Executive, THEY are derelict in their duty by not handing down wholesale indictments and Articles of Impeachment.

At least hammers have uses, Cavallo.
Arguably, a ‘box of rocks’ would be more apropos.

Where were the rest of the VFW members in protecting their fellow members’ effort to be heard?
They should have been ‘Front and Center’ in protecting one of their own! NOT aiding in taking down the protestor(s).

You might add that it is up to the Congress to REMOVE any elected/appointed officer in an administration for malfeasance or failure to preform their Constitutional duties.
All the bloviating boils down to the Congress being ‘on the bubble’ to perform THEIR Constitutional duties and start submitting subpoenas and throwing non producers in this administration into the nearest durance vile!!
 July 22, 2015 at 2:14pm
Hey, the Republican National Committee (RNC) could use something akin to this to vet and weed out THEIR RINOs.
OOPS! Sorry, Wrong RINOs.
Good idea/thought, though.

The 4 July 1776 solution:
“When in the Course of human events……………….And for the support of this Declaration, with firm reliance on the Protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.”
——Thomas Jefferson, et. al., and Fifty-Six other Patriot signatories.
The above Declaration, presented to our present day version of Gorge III in the Oval Office, may be “We the People’s” only choice other than outright Secession by several States.
