As a result of the White House Executive Orders last year, we now have a defacto amnesty status which can only be fixed through legislation. We will soon know whether President Obama is more...

"This ruling should give President Obama pause in his continuing effort to run the country through executive orders and agency rulings and regulations. It helps restore the system of checks and balances that is a vital part of our constitutional government. Hopefully, others are poised to challenge in the Courts other unconstitutional power grabs taken by this administration's assault on our Constitution."

Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) will be a keynote speaker at the 2013 Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), a regular stopping point for presidential aspirants over the years.

"We are pleased to announce that Congressman Paul Ryan will be a featured speaker at CPAC 2013," American Conservative Union Chairman Al Cardenas said in a statement. "From the day he was elected, Chairman Ryan has been a strong voice in Congress for pro-growth, free-market economic policies and has always been a CPAC favorite."

WaPo says he’s the keynoter but the ACU’s announcement says only that he’s a “featured” speaker. There’s usually some confusion about that: When Rubio was announced as a featured speaker for CPAC 2010, Politico dubbed him the keynoter. He wasn’t. He opened the conference but it was Glenn Beck who delivered the keynote on the last day.
