Every major earthquake starts with a small tremor. – KJ
Yesterday, the Media, Old and New, was abuzz over the unprecedented loss by House Majority Leader, Eric Canter, in the Republican Primary in the state of Virginia.
From the whining heard from the leaders of both political parties, you would have thought that something criminal had occurred.
And then…all the theories and conjecture started.
Both the Liberals and the Vichy Republicans (but, I repeat myself) began to “Palinize” Economics Professor Dave Brat, six ways from Sunday, showing the entire country that they were scared spitless by his unforeseen victory over the Majority Leader.
All of the tall tales told yesterday would mike a fisherman blush.
For example, Liberals were claiming that Cantor’s Loss was a vote against Jewish Politicians.
Bull. It was a vote against a RINO….a politician who had forgotten who put him in office.
As Rush Limbaugh explained yesterday,
…folks, when it comes to the Cantor election, I’m not gonna sit here and arrogantly tell you that I know why it happened.
Like everybody else, I have some pretty good educated guesses. But I’ll tell you what I do know. I do know that congressman Cantor had ceased to be perceived as having his own district in mind as he did things. He clearly had become an agent of the inside-the-Beltway establishment, and I’m telling you: The divide, the gap, the distance between the elite establishment and average Americans has never been greater.
And Congressman Cantor was seen as part of that very small yet powerful group of elites in the establishment to whom what happens in the rest of the country is not even known, nor is there much concern for it. You know, this border business. As I say, if they were serious about securing the border, if they really thought that that’s all they had to do to get support for amnesty, then they’d be out there doing it.
They’d be stopping these kids, however this is happening. But, no! We’re letting ‘em in, we’re depositing them in military bases, in bus stations. The next thing to come is their parents. People can figure this out. I think it’s no more complicated than this: People have less and less respect for and use for Washington, the whole thing. Republicans, Democrats, the administration, the administrative state, the regulatory state, the bureaucracy, the FDA, the IRS, all of this.
People are fed up. They’re fed up with lobbyists. They’re fed up with the Chamber of Commerce. They’re fed up with all these media pundit celebrities who also don’t know what they’re talking about, who have no idea what life is really like for most people in this country and don’t seem to really care. That’s what people are fed up with.
Senator Ted Cruz broke it down even farther on Glenn Beck’s Program yesterday…
Last night was a stunning election result. The results of last night are reverberating throughout the Capitol and throughout the Congress,” Cruz said. “Eric Cantor is a good man, a smart, capable man, but people across the country are fed up with what’s happening in Washington. And they are fed up with the federal government growing and growing and growing, with our national debt getting bigger and bigger and bigger, and with politicians of both parties not listening to the people who elected them.”
While Democrats in Congress and the mainstream media are already trying to paint Brat as an extremist, right-wing Tea Party-type, Glenn asked Cruz how much an upset like this effects the psyche of those in D.C.
“How scared are these guys,” Glenn asked.
“Washington, D.C. didn’t want to listen. The fight to make D.C. listen is not an easy fight. There’s a reason people job are in power 20, 30 years. They hold on to power, use a lot of money, and they use the entrenched force to try to hold onto it,” Cruz said. “But I’ll tell you things like last night get their attention. Things like the Mississippi Senate race get their attention.”
“I’ve said many times… I think the biggest divide we have in this country is not between Republicans and Democrats. It is between entrenched politicians in Washington, in both parties and the American people,” Cruz explained. “We’ve got to get the people to rise up and demand that we get back to basic common sense principle, that we get back to living within our means, not bankrupting the country, following the Constitution, restoring America’s leadership in the world. These are basic principles of who we are.”
“Will Washington demagogue anyone standing up for that and call them an extremist? Yes, that’s what Washington does,” he continued. “Who cares? We need to focus on energizing and mobilizing the American people to bring our nation back to the first principles of liberty and the Constitution that have made America strong in the first place.”
Democrats, Liberals, Progressives, Establishment Republicans, Moderates, all of these out-of-touch imbeciles, are having a problem: They are stuck in a reverse-Midas situation. Everything they touch turns into garbage.
The president’s poll numbers are in a free-fall, as his Smart Power! Foreign Policy, which led to the release of 5 murderous Muslim Terrorists for one deserting traitor, appears to the public to have all of the well-thought out logistics of a Three Stooges short. …as al Qaeda takes back over Iraq. (Hey, Moe! Nyuk, nyuk!)
Meanwhile, his domestic policies have resulted in 1/6th of Americans being on Food Stamps and a horrible employment situation, as Americans watch the Mexican Munchkin Migration continuesto overwhelm our Government Agencies, as they suspiciously pour across our Southern Borders.
So, as their political reality begins to collapse around them, all “the smartest people in the room from the Halls of Power, on down to Internet Chat Boards, have left are ad hominem attacks, or, name-calling.
Like the bully on the playground, whose false bravado masks a deeply-set insecurity, all of these “soooper geniuses” (with apologies to Wile E. Coyote) spent yesterday lashing out at Dave Brat, the Tea Party Movement, and the rest of Conservatives, in an attempt to protect their phony-baloney jobs, their acquired power, their failed political ideology, and the status quo. All of their carefully crafted schemes and long-term plans are turning to ash in their hands, as Christopher Lee did at the end of the classic Hammer Films Production, “The Horror of Dracula”.
On July 16, 1964, American Senator Barry Goldwater said the following during his speech accepting the Republican presidential nomination:
Extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice. And…moderation in the pursuit of justice is no virtue!
And, if you go further back in American History, I suppose that these namby-pamby passive-aggressive Progressives would have labeled our Founding Fathers as Extremists, also. Lord knows, they said some pretty Extreme things. Like Patrick Henry, who said:
Is life so dear or peace so sweet as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take, but as for me, give me liberty, or give me death!
Is wanting a fiscally responsible Federal Government an act of Extremism? No. Therefore:
Brace yourselves for an Electoral Tsunami This November.
Until He Comes,
