"Apparently, America now has its first emperor. And he has issued an imperial order to dissolve America's borders. Millions more will enter and demand the same amnesty benefits as those who came before. The entire moral foundation and consistency of our laws will have been eviscerated." - U.S. Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL)
For daring to oppose Obama's rise to emperor, Republican leadership may be signaling it intends to reduce Sen. Sessions clout in the senate.
There may be more Republicans serving on Capitol Hill come the new year, but it appears their leadership has no more will to challenge Obama in practical, effective ways than it's had for the past four years.
