‘We Will Not Engage’: Michele Bachmann Reveals GOP Plans to Ignore Executive Amnesty

Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn) revealed on Saturday that Republican leadership, led by Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-Oh), has no intention of resisting President Obama’s executive amnesty that he ordered on Thursday.

Breitbart News Executive Chairman Steven K. Bannon asked the congresswoman, who was a guest on Breitbart News Saturday Sirius XM Patriot channel 125, “Has there been any firm commitment from the leadership of the Republican party saying that this amnesty is not going to happen?” Bachmann replied with a question, “Do you want the truth? Okay, I’ll tell all of Breitbart listeners what happened this week. I was floored!”

In the weekly meeting called “Republican Conference” in the House of Representatives, “we all knew that the big issue for the week was going to be the president announcing his amnesty,” she explained. Bachmann recounted that all of the leadership went to the microphone, including John Boehner.

“They acted as though the amnesty issue wasn’t even an issue. They said that the President is going to do what he’s going to do, and we are not going to get down in the mud with him. We are not going to engage, and what we are going to do is to talk about our positive solutions on jobs, the economy, education, and manufacturing,” Bachmann said.

She added that each congressman who spoke reiterated that not engaging Obama and staying positive was a “brilliant strategy.”

“We will not engage,” she reiterated with disgust.

Bachmann, who was elected to Congress in 2006 and is ending her service this year, is stupefied by the Republican leadership not taking action or having a plan. “While the country is talking about amnesty, and the president is taking unconstitutional actions, our leadership wants to change the subject and not engage,” she said.

Bannon said he was “stunned” that, on the walk-up to a day that is going to go down as “one of the most important days in constitutional history,” there was no pre existing plan or course of action by the GOP. The Congresswoman asserts that Boehner and the leadership “think that the smarter strategy is to not engage.”

Earlier in the broadcast, co-host and Breitbart News Editor-in-Chief Alex Marlow said that, after reading Breitbart News’ report on Friday about Republicans flying out of town after Obama’s speech without devising a plan, is evidence that “the Republican establishment doesn’t cares about Obama passing executive amnesty.”

Marlow mused, “We’re having this debate: should there be a lawsuit? Should there be impeachment? Should the government be shut down? What should we be doing?”

Breitbart’s EIC deduced that Republicans don’t have a coherent plan for a reason. “I actually think this is by design. Republicans have wanted comprehensive immigration reform, they wanted cheap labor… they knew this was coming for nine months, and they did absolutely nothing to get the conservative base on the same page. It’s such a colossal failure that I don’t think that it’s possible to fail this badly. All they had to do was pick a plan and rally everyone behind it. They never did it. Now everyone has a different idea of what needs to be done, and they are leaving town without making a decision.”

Bachmann says that her plan is to “frame the debate so that we fight about the president’s unconstitutional power grab on issuing work permits, despite what the president says. It is an illegal action, and he cannot do it. We would win on that fight, and we would win on that argument.”

Breitbart News reported that the Congresswoman is organizing a rally on Wednesday, Dec. 3rd at high noon on the western steps of the capitol in Washington, D.C. to fight back against the president. Bachmann is asking for all to come to the capitol to show solidarity, as well as urging listeners to “melt the phone lines” of our representatives to defund executive amnesty. The Congress will be in session from Dec. 1-11, so this will be the window during which to call them.

Bachmann also invited one and all to a rally at the United States Capitol in Washington D.C. to take place on December 3rd. She also asked listeners to “melt” Congress’ phone lines on that day. Details are forthcoming.

  1. Representative Bachmann has NO EXCUSES to her not even dropping a Resolution of Impeachment against Obama into a hopper, and having at least that resolution deferred to an appropriate Committee. Nor does she have an excuse to NOT at least put forth a vote of NO CONFIDENCE in John Boehner, and demand we have a NEW Speaker of the House. Louie Gohmert and Trey Gowdy are good candidates to that position, or if you want an IMPEACHMENT fire-brand, there is Steve Stockman.

    It would also be advisable for all U.S. Citizen readers here to know how easy it is to file charges of IMPEACHMENT on Obama with minimal political repercussions for those just re-elected to serve, now extending their time in D.C. into what amounts as 25 plus months minimum.

    Impeachment Under Congressional Rules
    — “Article 2, Section. 4.
    The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the
    United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.”

    The opening salvo is started in this way:

    — “Impeachment proceedings may be commenced in the House
    of Representatives by a Member declaring a charge of impeachment on his or her own initiative, [ III Hind’s Precedents of the House of Representatives , §§ 2342, 2400, 2469 (1907)]

    by a Member presenting a memorial listing charges under oath, [ III Hind’s Precedents of the House of Representatives, §§ 2364, 2486, 2491, 2494, 2496, 2499, 2515.]

    or by a Member depositing a resolution in the hopper, which
    is then referred to the appropriate committee. [ 116 Cong. Rec. 11941-42 (April 15, 1970); 119 Cong. Rec. 74873 (Oct. 23, 1973). See also, Brown, W., House Practice, A Guide to the Rules, Precedents
    and Procedures of the House , § 6 (1996).].”

    Quoting from source of:
    http://www.senate.gov/reference/resources/pdf/98-806.pdf

    When Obama issued his Amnesty Order, he clearly violated the Constitution in taking for himself the Legislative Powers of Congress:
    Article 1 – Section 1 – “All legislative powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States, which shall consist of a Senate and House of Representatives.”

    Article 1 – Section 8 – Only CONGRESS is allowed to Legislate and “establish a uniform rule of naturalization…”

    If Michele refuses to take action, she is in DERELICTION of duty to her office. If she chooses to be a do-nothing, merely giving lip service while whining to the cameras, she doesn’t love her country over her new god of mamon nor own up to her responsibilities as a Representative of Congress in a Constitutional Crisis such as this, she’s merely looking for more face time and a way to up her post-Representative speaking tour fees. As a Christian, I tell her that such failure on her part is morally reprehensible and reprobate.

  2. Why is it that O’bimbo, who called the Constitution he swore to uphold a “flawed, racist, bigoted document full of negative liberties that needs to be eradicated” (which is what he is doing), and his liberal clapping seal sycophants describe America as a racist, bigoted, homophobic hell-hole, etc., that he felt compelled to sign an executive order making it easier for others to come HERE? He should be trying to PREVENT his precious minorities from the misfortune of coming here and having to live in this awful country. You would think his executive order would have been to help people escape, even deporting them if he has to.

    If Mexican immigrants reclaim our border states and make them just another part of Mexico, where will they want to “escape” to next year? Nevada? Wyoming?
