Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas (of course) is marshaling his forces to oppose the villainous Gang of Eight and their foul scheme to break America’s border, bank and sovereignty.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) launched a national petition on Thursday to stop the Senate Gang of Eight’s amnesty bill and send Washington a “strong signal” of the grassroots opposition to the bill.

“This is urgent,” Cruz wrote in an e-mail to supporters. “We must stop this Gang of 8 immigration bill, which would give amnesty to an estimated 11 million illegal immigrants with no guarantee of a secure border.”

“The Senate debate is in the final stages and we need to send Washington a strong signal of the overwhelming grassroots opposition to this amnesty bill from Americans across the country,” Cruz explained.

That petition is here.

Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky is dropping the political f-bomb: Filibuster.

Sen. Rand Paul plans to support a filibuster of the Senate immigration bill unless it grants Congress more border security oversight, the Kentucky Republican said on Thursday.

Paul does not plan to stand on the Senate floor for 13 hours straight like he did in March to protest President Barack Obama’s drone policy, but he will withhold support for a motion to end debate on the bill, a procedural tactic that effectively could block the bill from seeing a final vote.

“Unless they change the bill, I will vote on the side of not ending the debate, which is essentially like a filibuster, but it’s not the filibuster people think of,” Paul said during an interview on the “Andrea Tantaros Show.”

If only these two super senators could get together and form some sort of league. To promote justice for American citizens. Or to avenge us for the wrongs done to us by our current government.

Don’t worry the Republican Party will find a way to sabotage anything meaningful. It is in their DNA. Furman University has done a great service to those of us who want to find out what actually happened to our Country by making Secession Era Editorials easily available on the two key events that the Party used to destroy the Republic – “The Dred Scott Decision” and the actual beginning of the Civil War – John Brown’s raid on Harpers’ Ferry.

For Republican hacks posing as Conservatives to have any credibility you have to forget about the entire history of the 19th Century and the beginning of the Republican Party…. they are among those who would like to dupe us into believing that Progressive Utopianism began with John Dewey, Woodrow Wilson or Saul Alinsky. It didn’t.
Read Republican Party’s promoter Horace Greeley’s NY Tribune hysterical editorials – could have come right out of the 1960’s at the corner of Haight & Ashbury and been written by Billy Ayers!

What if they're just playing into Reid and Schumer's hands?

Right now the Democrats think they're in a win-win scenario. Either they get an amnesty, in which case they'll have plenty of new liberal voters on the roles in 2014; or the bill gets defeated by Republicans, in which case they get an issue to motivate their base.

But what if Rubio's plan is to get a bill passed, knowing that anything making it out of the House would have a security-first position. If part of the price for his support was a position on the conference committee he could join up with the House Republicans to make security a prerequisite for legalization, it has been his position all along and polls show it to be overwhelmingly popular. Then the Dems would be in a position of either accepting border security before legalization, which means there would never be legalization; or voting against amnesty and angering their base.
