Vichy Republicans Expand Obamacare. Time to “Let Them Go Their Way”

April 7, 2014

boehnercryingI’m confused.

If my wife was looking over my shoulder as I am writing this, she would say,

What else is new?

I realize that the old saying is there’s nothing new under the sun, However, by now you would think that politicians would somehow think up new tricks to pull on their  constituency.

You have no doubt heard that the Republican Party, in a vote which would be called covert only in polite circles, have passed their own additions to the unwanted law known as Obamacare.

According to the Speaker of the House, Republican “Cryin’” John Boehner, the legislation weakens  Obamacare. According to the Democrats, what the Republican Establishment added to Obamacare strengthens the law.

Correct me if I’m wrong but aren’t the Republicans supposed to be the opposition party?

And isn’t the purpose of an opposition party to provide solutions to horrible laws passed by their opponents?

Just like this slavish mainstream media believe that President Barack Hussein Obama walks upon the water, House Speaker John Boehner and the rest of the Vichy Republicans, must idolize or at least respect the Democratic Party because they seem Hell-bent on copying them in their actions, words, and deeds.

Just look at their proclamations lately. They have embraced amnesty, they are in the process of embracing gay marriage, and now, these idiots have actually strengthened  Obamacare.

It seems to me that I remember John Boehner and the rest of them promising at election time to get rid of Obamacare or at least the parts of it that they didn’t like.

And then, they pull this mess, like a bunch of Democrats, and expect us to remember them in  November during the Midterm Elections?

Oh, we will remember them all right. But not in the way they want us to. We will not remember them as leaders. Oh, no. Rather, Americans conservatives will remember them with all of the fondness that the French Resistance remembered the Nazi collaborators, or Vichy French, after World War II.

What slays me is the fact that the Establishment Republicans seem to be quite content, in their moderately left-leaning stupor, to be totally oblivious and tone deaf of their Conservative Base, average hard working middle-class Americans like you and me.

You know, the people who actually put them into office.

They keep on making bad choices.

They have pushed and misty because they erroneously believe that these new citizens will vote for them instead of the Democratic Party, who are ready to be their own personal Santa Claus and by their votes with free admission to the welfare state.

Moderate Republicans have been a barrier to Republican victory for as long as I can remember. Like Quakers, Establishment Republicans seem to believe that passive resistance and reaching out to their sworn enemies friends, is the way to defeat those who oppose you.

It has been especially bad in this election cycle, as the House and Senate Republican Leadership apparently cherish their friendship with the Democrats more than they do the wishes of the folks back home. Yes, they talk a good game, but so did Jon Lovitz in those “Liar Sketches” during the old days of Saturday Night Live, back when they were actually funny.

Yeah,  my wife Morgan Fairchild. Yeah, that’s it. That’s the ticket!

In 1975, Ronald Wilson Reagan gave a speech which sums up our present situation and how we need to handle the Republican Party leadership, quite well.

Americans are hungry to feel once again a sense of mission and greatness.

I don ‘t know about you, but I am impatient with those Republicans who after the last election rushed into print saying, “We must broaden the base of our party” — when what they meant was to fuzz up and blur even more the differences between ourselves and our opponents.

It was a feeling that there was not a sufficient difference now between the parties that kept a majority of the voters away from the polls. When have we ever advocated a closed-door policy? Who has ever been barred from participating?

Our people look for a cause to believe in. Is it a third party we need, or is it a new and revitalized second party, raising a banner of no pale pastels, but bold colors which make it unmistakably clear where we stand on all of the issues troubling the people?

Let us show that we stand for fiscal integrity and sound money and above all for an end to deficit spending, with ultimate retirement of the national debt.

Let us also include a permanent limit on the percentage of the people’s earnings government can take without their consent.

Let our banner proclaim a genuine tax reform that will begin by simplifying the income tax so that workers can compute their obligation without having to employ legal help.

And let it provide indexing — adjusting the brackets to the cost of living — so that an increase in salary merely to keep pace with inflation does not move the taxpayer into a surtax bracket. Failure to provide this means an increase in government’s share and would make the worker worse off than he was before he got the raise.

Let our banner proclaim our belief in a free market as the greatest provider for the people. Let us also call for an end to the nit-picking, the harassment and over-regulation of business and industry which restricts expansion and our ability to compete in world markets.

Let us explore ways to ward off socialism, not by increasing government’s coercive power, but by increasing participation by the people in the ownership of our industrial machine.

Our banner must recognize the responsibility of government to protect the law-abiding, holding those who commit misdeeds personally accountable.

And we must make it plain to international adventurers that our love of peace stops short of “peace at any price.”

We will maintain whatever level of strength is necessary to preserve our free way of life.

A political party cannot be all things to all people. It must represent certain fundamental beliefs which must not be compromised to political expediency, or simply to swell its numbers.

I do not believe I have proposed anything that is contrary to what has been considered Republican principle. It is at the same time the very basis of conservatism. It is time to reassert that principle and raise it to full view. And if there are those who cannot subscribe to these principles, then let them go their way.

I believe that the Republican Party is stuck in a cycle in which their desire to protect their own hindquarters and cushy “jobs” have lead to a self-imposed isolation from the very American Citizens who were responsible for their having those cushy “jobs” in the first place.

I believe that average Americans, like you and me, have the power to relieve them of the burden of such a stressful job, and send others to Washington, who will listen to their “bosses”.

Just as Ronaldus Magnus said those 39 years ago, it is time to “let them go their way”.

Ann Coulter Wants Romney in 2016…To Heck With Us “Rubes” in the Heartland.

April 4, 2014

anncoulterJust when you thought that Ann Coulter had regained her senses..she shows her true colors in a television interview.

Here is a transcript, courtesy of realclearpolitics.com:

HOST: Who are you for, for president right now, Ann?

ANN COULTER: Well, don’t tell him but I’m planning on giving Mitt Romney a little more time to rest — flying out, kidnapping him and depriving him of sleep, food and water until he agrees to run again.

HOST: You’re kidding?

COULTER: No.

HOST: You really want him to run again?

COULTER: Yeah, I think he was a fantastic candidate. As I’ve told you before, he would have won by a larger landslide than Ronald Reagan did in 1980 without Teddy Kennedy’s immigration bill. And it’s basically impossible to beat an incumbent, but he is head and shoulders better than the other candidates we had. And I don’t want to name them, but I mean you go through the list — and for one thing, as you and I discussed, and this is the most important point, that all of your listeners have to tell all of their friends knock it off with the Congressmen or inspirational figures. It’s got to be a Governor or a Senator, preferably a Governor. And, you know, there is a limited world — a list of who those people are, and they all have problems. None of them are articulate and reasonable, and as good on immigration as Mitt Romney!

HOST: What about Ted Cruz?

COULTER: Well, he’s a lot worse on immigration.

HOST: Is he that bad? I didn’t think he was that bad on immigration.

COULTER: Well, most Republicans are, that’s why you need to call your Congressman. I’m not singling out Ted Cruz, he has the same position a lot of these idiots have. ‘Oh yes, let them come here and we have a special permit, we just won’t give them citizenship. But we want to increase guest workers.’

That’s going to last 10 seconds and destroy the Republican party with Hispanics. What are we going to have, a servant class we’re going to bring in to work for us? Um, no, within six months they will all be citizens voting for the Democrats, and Republicans will never win another election.

No, but Romney was the best on immigration of any candidate in my lifetime with the possible exception of Ronald Reagan, but he was hoodwinked in passing that amnesty –

HOST: Right, Simpson-Mazzoli, or whatever it was called in 1986.

COULTER: And with the promise of border enforcement. I mean, Ed Meese himself has said if Reagan could go back, he never would have signed that now. He was double-crossed.

HOST: Yeah, but people are saying, ‘No, Ann, no. No more RINOs.’

COULTER: Well, that’s just the mob taking over — you may not have the tribe wanting to run Romney again, but the idea the he’s a RINO, as opposed to what, Rick Perry, who gave illegal aliens in-state tuition. The same thing with Chris Christie. And, as I say, Ted Cruz is a disaster on illegal immigration.

That is YOUR opinion, Miz Ann.

Once again, through the love of your Vichy Republican Heart, Williard Mitt Romney, you have shown yourself to be nothing but an Establishment Republican, who sold books, while masquerading as a Conservative.

After it has all been said and done, you are just another Beltway Darling, enamored with your position as a “political pundit”, drunk with fame and arrogance, looking down on us Average Conservative Americans, here in the Heartland.

I can hear your response to my charges, even as I write this Blog:

Why can’t you be smart, like we are, in the Beltway? Don’t you know that Reagan Conservatism is passe? We need to pick a candidate for president who can reach across the aisle, a Moderate, err, I mean a “real” Republican who knows his place. Umm, I mean, one who will sit in the Oval Office with grace and dignity.

Now, shuddup you stupid rednecks and let us geniuses up here in the Beltway tell you who to vote for.

Unfortunately, Miz Ann, it doesn’t work that way.

You see, we average Americans, here in Dixie, and folks in the rest of the Heartland, are fed up with you Vichy Republicans treating us like the hired help. We stood by and watched you nominate the likes of Bob Dole and John McCain, the squishiest of squishes, then held our noses and dutifully voted for them.

Then, we watched you and your buddies, the Democrats, and their lackeys, the Main Stream Media, trash a good Christian American like Sarah Palin, to the point where she and her family said, “Enough of this mess”, which led to her dropping out of the Primary race.

This, in 2012, your Vichy Republican Role Models decided that it was Mitt Romney’s “turn”,  leading him to the same embarrassing fate that every other “moderate” Republican has met in a Presidential Election.

Afterwards, you joined in with them, in blaming absent Conservative Voters, for Romney’s Failure.

Miz Ann, you need to go on Wheel of Fortune, buy a vowel and get a clue. The South and rest of the Heartland will vote for whomever we want to, so go get your skinny self a sammich and stuff it.

Besides, why should we trust the judgment of someone who used to date Bill Maher, anyway?

I rest my case.

Obamacare Workers Passing Out Filled Out Democratic Ballots. GOP Establishment Still Wants to “Fix” It.

March 31, 2014

Obamacare ambulanceAs the clock strikes midnight for the implementation of Obamacare, the Mainstream Media is putting out stories claiming that the phone lines are melting down with Americans calling in to partake of Government-Run Healthcare.

Uh huh.

Government-Run Healthcare is not all Baracky Claus’ little elves are passing out. For those of you who still think that Obamacare was passed out of the goodness of the Democrats’ hearts…

LA MESA, Calif. – A local couple called 10News concerned after they received an envelope from the state’s Obamacare website, Covered California. Inside was a letter discussing voter registration and a registration card pre-marked with an “x” in the box next to Democratic Party.

The couple – who did not want their identity revealed – received the letter and voter registration card from their health insurance provider Covered California, the state-run agency that implements President Obama’s Affordable Care Act.

They have lived in La Mesa for years and they have always been registered to vote Republican. Now, they are perplexed as to how the voter registration card pre-marked Democrat ended up in their mailbox.

“I’m an old guy and I never would have noticed it, except I have an accountant that notices every dot and dash on a piece of paper as a wife,” said the man who received the mailer.

Covered California began mailing out voter signup cards to nearly 4 million enrollees last week after being threatened with a lawsuit by voting rights groups. But that does not explain the pre-filled out voter registration card.

“It’s a waste of money because there’s an awful lot of people who are going to get this that are already registered and they don’t need to. I can see that, but I can’t see putting x on the form before it’s given to me in a little bitty box that nobody’s really going to notice,” said the recipient of the mailer.

10News shared what was sent with Covered California.

Spokeswoman Anne Gonzales stated, “We are mailing voter registration material. However, the application forms come directly from the Secretary of State’s office, with no fields pre-marked. The individual should contact the Secretary of State, which takes these violations of election law extremely seriously, and they will investigate, using the unique serial number.”

The couple says they did reach out to the Secretary of State’s office and could not get a hold of anyone. They also say they reached out to the San Diego County Registrar of Voters, which told them to contact Covered California.

With the overt politicization and overall massive fiasco that is the failure of the President’s signature legislation, Obamacare, one would think that the Republican Party could “make hay while the sun shines” leading up to the November Mid-Term Elections

On March 14th, Rush Limbaugh said the following on his nationally-syndicated radio program…

Here you’ve got the Democrats who are on the verge of a massive landslide, wave loss that they are perfectly aware of. And, of course, the Democrats — knowing how malleable the Republicans are — are warning, “You guys, you better not run just on Obamacare! If that’s all you do, why, you’re not gonna have the kind of victory you should have,” as though they’re interested in us winning.

You listen to Bob Beckel, and he’s actually trying to help us. Yes, he’s trying to advise us on the kind of campaign to run so that we win the right way, and what is he saying? “You better not focus on Obamacare!” Well, of course he’s gonna say that. Obamacare is an albatross. Obamacare is a cement swimsuit for these guys. So here comes the Republican establishment represented by Dana Perino saying (paraphrased), “Bob, I think that’s right, yes.

“Republicans have seen that same poll and, yes, we shouldn’t run just on Obamacare.” Who said anybody was gonna run “just on Obamacare,” anyway? But the fact is that both parties are cautioning Republican candidates, “You better not focus on repealing Obamacare! You better focus on fixing it, and you better focus on something besides Obamacare. You can’t just win by talking about Obamacare.” Both parties are telling Republican candidates this.

It happens that it flies in the face of some of the most obvious logic that has ever been in politics. Obamacare is one of the biggest negatives any politician has ever been saddled with. Obamacare is one of the biggest negatives any political party has ever been saddled with. It is an absolute, utter, total failure and disaster. There isn’t anybody recommending it. The Democrats can’t even put together, with any credibility, a fake video of happy citizens touting the benefits of Obamacare.

They know it wouldn’t be credible.

That’s how bad it is.

They can’t even come up with actors. Even the best liars in the world can’t come up with a fake ad campaign with fake citizens touting how great their lives are now because of Obamacare, ’cause nobody would believe it — and in the middle of all this, we are being cautioned and warned, “Do not think you can win by simply opposing Obamacare!” Immediately after this guy did just that, they come out and tell us, “Don’t think you can do it.”

It’s really odd, folks.

Indeed, it is.

26% of Americans, according to a recent poll from the Associated Press, no less, are now opposed to Obamacare.

The GOP Establishment, or Vichy Republicans, as I refer to them, are so dadblamed isolated in their Beltway Bubble from the American Citizens that they are supposed to be representing, and so in love with the prospect of growing the Federal Government, through the retention of Obamacare, that they might as well rename themselves the Democratic Party II.

If the old guard Vichy Republicans care more about their Capitol Hill Way of Life than their country and their constituents, then it is time for them to get out of the way, and allow Sen. Ted Cruz and his allies to lead the battle against this corrupt anti-American Administration.

Because, as the old saying goes,

If you are not part of the solution, you are part of the problem.

Is Obamacare on Its “Deathbed”?

March 28, 2014

obamadoctorNo government ever voluntarily reduces itself in size. Government programs, once launched, never disappear. Actually, a government bureau is the nearest thing to eternal life we’ll ever see on this earth! – Ronald Reagan

The big story in the news yesterday came as no surprise to me. President Barack Hussein Obama signature legislation known as Obamacare, has reached an all time low in popularity, coming in at 26% on an Associated Press poll.

Never in all of my life, or at least since I’ve been aware of our government and the way things work, have I seen such a relentless propaganda campaign by the American Government to force upon their citizens something that they did not want in the first place.

Government- run healthcare has been the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow for the Democratic Party for decades.

Back in the 90′s, First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton tried to get a Nationally-run Healthcare System of her own design put in place. Her dreams were dashed when United States citizens melted down the Congressional Phone Lines with a unified shout out of “NO WAY!”,  that could be heard from here to Asgard (a reference for you “Thor” fans out there).

Since then, the Democratic Party had no doubt been plotting in smoke filled rooms, biding their time, waiting for the chance to spring a nationally-run healthcare system upon the unsuspecting American people again.

And then came Barack Hussein Obama, a “clean and articulate” candidate, who was “down with the struggle” and intimate with a teleprompter.

When he ascended to the throne, Barack the Magnificent made no secret of his plans to nationalize and therefore ruin the greatest healthcare system in the world.

And, with both houses of Congress controlled by the Democrats, there was no way to stop him.

When America asked what specifically was in the “Affordable Care Act”, San Fran Nan Pelosi told us that she didn’t know either, and that Congress would have to pass  the bill to find out what was in it.

All the while, , “Baracky Claus” was assuring all of us good little girls and boys that” if we liked our doctor, we could keep our doctor. If we liked our health insurance plan, we could keep our health insurance plan.”

So on Christmas Eve of 2009, Baracky Claus’ little elves in Congress gave America a present we didn’t want.

Once the Democrats passed this bill into law, Americans soon found out why they were so reluctant to tell us exactly what was in the bill.

It turned out to a bill conceived on the misguided pretense that young Americans in their 20′s would be willing to pay the insurance bill for elderly people.

Heck, young folks are usually borrowing money from the grandparents…not giving it to them.

As this sick, twisted excuse for law started to be revealed, Americans found out that not only where we going to go trillions of dollars in debt, additionally, we were going to have to provide birth control for free to easy young women like Sandra Fluke. (Yeah. I said it.)

However, that wasn’t the worst of it.

We also found out the cancer treatments would be cut off at the age of 70. So,if you come down with cancer at the age of 70…tough.  But hold on…that’s not all: the government will decide what sort of treatment you get as you journey through your twilight years.

Oh, you broke her hip grandma? Well…here’s an aspirin.

And, that brings us to present day.

Obama has issued so many Executive Orders and made so many corrections to this awful law, that it is even more confusing than before he started making the corrections.

And, who could forget the launch of the Obamacare website?

It has turned out to be the biggest bomb since Rosie O’Donnell Variety Show. We found out that the company that designed it had an executive on that staff who went to college with First Lady Michelle Obama. They had previously screwed up jobs  in Canada, but the Obama administration hired them anyway.

After we got rid of them, it seemed like things were going better. However, now we find out that the back end of the website, the part that involves the insurance companies, is not completed.

And yet, the administration claims at least six million people have signed up.

You figure that one out. It gives me a headache.

So, it’s no surprise that Obamacare’s popularity is down to 26%. Heck,  its probably not even that high. The Associated Press probably polled more Democrats than anybody else.

In fact, Obamacare is so horrible that Democrats have been told not to run on it in the upcoming midterm election. A Campaign Adviser has told them to tell the gullible among us, that they will “fix it”.

Uh huh. And, the check’s in the mail.

However, don’t expect the GOP Establishment, or Vichy Republicans, as I call them, to do the politically-savvy thing and call for Obamacare to be shut down. Oh no. They want to “fix it” as well.

The harsh reality is, these “Beltway Bubble” Republicans, just like their buddies “across the aisle”, view a Nationally-run Healthcare System as a way to further expand the power and reach of the Federal Government and line the Federal Vaults with money…and, at least for some of them, keeping the travesty known as Obamacare gives them the opportunity to further line their pockets with money, as well.

The only ones hollering to do the right and logical thing, and  shut it down, are Ted Cruz and the rest of the Tea Party, or Reagan Conservative Republicans.

And, those are the ones we need to support and vote for this November.

Time is Running Out on a Desperate Obama. Who Will Thwart His Plans? Conservatives, if Allowed to.

March 13, 2014

Cartoon-Cruz-Vs-Establishment-600The clock is ticking down on the Obama Presidency. It won’t be long until the Mid-Term Elections, which could make the rapidly-failing Lightbringer’s political mission even tougher to complete than it is now.

Weeklystandard.com reports that

President Obama knows that his time is almost up. It’s a point he’s making to liberal Democratic donors to get them to donate generously in this year’s mid-term election.

At a Democratic fundraiser last night in New York City, President Obama said, “I hope you will all step up because, although I’m very optimistic about our long-term trends, the notion that we would waste two years in further inaction rather than move boldly on a path that I think all of us in this room agree on — we don’t have time to waste.”

The president continued, “I don’t have time to waste. The clock is ticking. There’s less than two years left — less than three years left. I want to squeeze every last little bit of work that I can during the remainder of my term so that, looking back, I’m going to be able to say that we left everything on the field and every single person I could help in this office — which is such an incredible privilege — I helped.”

But before that, Obama also took an opportunity in the middle of the fundraiser, to tweak Democrats. “And the fact of the matter is that Democrats are not without our flaws. We have our blind spots and we have our dogmas and we’ve got our crazy folks,” Obama said as the crowd laughed.

“But as a whole, this is a party that is serious about making sure that America is growing and offering opportunity to everybody. And the story many of you here in this room have lived, the success that you’ve lived out, what we’re about is making sure a whole bunch of kids behind us can live out that same success. And if I have just a smidgeon of a cooperative Congress, think what we can do these next two and a half years.”

… A cooperative Congress.

You do realize that he is not just talking about members of his own political party, i.e., Democrats, don’t you?

He is referring to the Vichy Republicans, also.

You know, the professional politicians who believe that if they adopt the Liberal beliefs and goals of the Democrats, then those potential voters, who share the Democrats’ Liberal Beliefs, will then transfer their loyalty to the Republican Party.

PT Barnum was right. There IS a sucker born every minute.

It won’t be Establishment Republicans who will thwart Obama’s plans to “radically change” America. It will be Reagan Conservatives working within and alongside the TEA Party Movement.

Conservatives like Texas Senator Ted Cruz, who told the audience at the annual Conservative Political Action Committee Conference last weekend, that you win by standing on your principles, as pjmedia.com reports:

…Let’s look back at the past four elections, 2006, 2008, 2010, and 2012. The only election we won was 2010, when we stood unequivocally for principle….Who are the most two people who have energized young people? Ronald Reagan and Ron Paul. What did they do? They painted a bold picture of what America can do…. You win elections by standing for principles and believing that there is a better tomorrow.

“How do we inspire people? Number one we tell the truth…. The truth is Washington is corrupt. You are in some of the richest counties in the country. As more and more people make great wealth in Washington, young people, single moms, and small business owners suffer…. Real change is changing the corruption that is here in Washington, D.C.”

Cruz also addressed how President Obama, whom younger Americans propelled into the presidency in 2008, has hurt America’s rising generations.

…Under President Obama, the American Dream is harder to achieve…. If you were to sit down and hammer the living daylights out of young people, you couldn’t do better than the Obama Administration. Obamacare is a massive wealth transfer. And who the heck is going to pay for our national debt?

…We need to stop bankrupting our country. What we’re doing to our kids and grandkids is morally wrong. If we don’t change course, they will be left working to pay off the debts their parents left them with. We need to turn this around.”

Cruz also addressed the need to repeal Obamacare, unleash American energy production, expand school choice and abolish the scandal-plagued IRS.

Another TEA Party Favorite, the Arctic Fox, Sarah Palin, announced yesterday, that she would be continuing her successful endorsement of Conservative Candidates:

As I said in my speech last week in Washington, D.C., America needs bold Constitutional conservative leaders who will fight for us with intelligence and integrity to restore our exceptional nation and preserve the blessings of liberty and prosperity. Time is short. I’m convinced it’s now or never to save our free republic.

So, I’m excited to announce that big U.S. Senate and House of Representatives endorsements are on the way! We’ll tackle some state races, too. Lots of vetting and research goes into these endorsements because this is for YOU. It’s to allow you to take a closer look at good men and women with servants’ hearts who are willing to get in the rough and tumble arena to help save America. Please do your own homework on candidates; never put all your hopes and unattainable expectations in anyone running for office (because humankind’s imperfections aren’t absent in politicians), but know that I’ve been diligent and pragmatic in choosing patriots whom I believe we can trust to do the right thing. I never want to let you down! And you know me well enough by now; you know I do my homework; I use discernment, and then I go with my gut.

These candidates put service over self and principles over politics. They’re not going to D.C. to get cozy with the permanent political class or feather their nests off the crony capitalism running rampant in the swamp. They’re going to Washington to shake things up and restore that endangered species in D.C. – common sense – in an out-of-control government that stomps on the neck of freedom and opportunity. These men and women have promised to be fighters for all that is good about America. They’ll have our back; let’s do our part and watch their backs, too, as we send these reinforcements into the battle.

I’ll roll out endorsements in coming days; I’ll ask you to support the good guys, and we’ll all covet prayers for them and for the great awakening I’m confident our nation is experiencing as people open their eyes to the present harsh reality but also to America’s future positive possibilities as we seek our nation’s good destiny!

Since I began my daily musings in April of 2010, I have always told you that Liberals will tell you whom they fear. That is true for Liberals on both sides of the political aisle.

Unfortunately, since Conservatives handed the GOP the House of Representatives in the Mid-Terms of 2010, the Establishment Republicans have had a rapidly progressing case of amnesia, as regards to whom they owe their phony-baloney jobs to. As I recently wrote, the vast sea of Red you see in Electoral Maps, was responsible for the GOP’s rise to power in 2010.

It can be again, if the Northeastern Republicans’ Club would just shuddup, step aside, and allow the Conservative Base to carry them to victory, once again.

Because if they attempt to nominate squishy  Moderates in the Mid-Term, they will lose any hope of winning the Senate, plus they will lose seats in the House, as well.

Just ask President Romney.

McConnell Disses TEA Party. Palin Blasts Establishment Republicans

March 10, 2014

Republicans Vs. Tea PartyThe Establishment Republicans seem to have forgotten who presented them with the majority in the House of Representatives in the Mid-Term Elections of 2010.

On Saturday, the New York Times published a report featuring an interview they had with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell,

As conservative activist groups stirred up trouble for establishment Republican Senate candidates in 2010 and 2012, party leaders in Washington first tried to ignore the insurgents, then tried to reason with them, and ultimately left it to primary voters to settle the matter.

But after several of those conservatives — in Nevada, Colorado and Delaware in 2010 and in Indiana and Missouri in 2012 — managed to win their primaries but lose in the general election, party leaders felt stung by what they saw as avoidable defeats.

This election season, Republicans led by Senator Mitch McConnell of Kentucky are taking a much harder line as they sense the majority within reach. Top congressional Republicans and their allies are challenging the advocacy groups head on in an aggressive effort to undermine their credibility. The goal is to deny them any Senate primary victories, cut into their fund-raising and diminish them as a future force in Republican politics.

“I think we are going to crush them everywhere,” Mr. McConnell, the Senate Republican leader, said in an interview, referring to the network of activist organizations working against him and two Republican incumbents in Kansas and Mississippi while engaging in a handful of other contests. “I don’t think they are going to have a single nominee anywhere in the country.”

There McConnell goes, thinking again. Ol’ Mitch sure is an ungrateful old codger, isn’t he?

The TEA party isn’t going anywhere, as exhibited by speeches from Conservatives like Ted Cruz an Sarah Palin at the Conservative Political Action Committee’s Annual Conference this past weekend.

Speaking of the Arctic Fox, she brought the house down, delivering the Keynote speech at CPAC on Saturday afternoon. Nationalreview.com has the story…

Palin delivered the closing remarks at this year’s conference and, in a speech that touched on topics ranging from Obamacare to the Republican establishment to Ted Cruz to the war on women, she brought the audience of approximately 11,000 to its feet repeatedly with the sassiness and attitude that has become her calling card.

“The age of Obama is almost over,” she announced. “This is the end of an error, he is the lamest of lame ducks.”

Palin also launched an assault on the party establishment, which she said is urging Republicans to law low while Obamacare and the president’s feckless foreign policy create problems for Democrats.

“You do interrupt when they are in the process of destroying your country, and that’s what we’re gonna do in 2014,” she said. Audience members interrupted to exclaim, “Run, Sarah, run!” (She garnered just 2 percent in the conference’s annual presidential straw poll.)

Palin’s message to President Obama, who is in the midst of a stand off with Russian president Vladimir Putin over his incursion into Ukraine: ”Mr. President,” she said, “the only thing that stops a bad guy with a nuke is a good guy with a nuke.” Then she acknowledged she should be more understanding in the face of the president’s troubles. “After all, who could have seen this one coming?” she quipped, referring to her 2008 prediction that American inaction in the face of Putin’s invasion of Georgia would encourage him to invade Ukraine.

“I love coming back here because there are always so many young people or, as you’re known by the folks across the river, Obamacare suckers,” she said. “Turns out, you have the change that they were waiting for: You have the $5s, the $10s, and the $20s.”

“They said the train of history was roaring to the left,” she said, “but then, something happened. That ‘Hope and Change’ went from a catchy campaign slogan to a reality and along the way, ‘Hope and Change,’ ‘Yes we can,’ it became ‘No You Can’t’: No you can’t log on to the website. No, you can’t keep your health care. No, you can’t make a phone call without Michelle Obama knowing this is the third time you dialed Pizza Hut delivery.”

Pushing back against the Democrats’ claim that the Republican party’s pro-life stance constitutes a war on women, she told the women in today’s audience, of the Democratic party, “Don’t let them use you unless you choose to be their political pawn or just their accessory on their arm. Honey, that’s not liberation, that’s subjugation, and this sisterhood fights against that.”

…Palin, who heads a political action committee dedicated to backing candidates that she supports, and who will host the show “Amazing America” on the Sportsman Channel starting next month, has not backed a 2016 presidential candidate yet, but did give a special shout out to freshman senator Ted Cruz. “Liberty needs a Congress on Cruz control,” she said, praising Cruz’s all-night filibuster and his attempt to defund Obamacare, which she said had helped to wake people up to the horrors of Obamacare.

Palin offered her own version of “Green Eggs and Ham” after offering praise for Cruz, who read the book on the Senate floor during his filibuster against Obamacare last fall.

“I do not like this Uncle Sam, I do not like this health care scam. I do not like these dirty crooks, or how they lie and cook the books,” she said. The audience laughed and cheered.

“I do not like this spyin’ man, I do not like ‘Oh, yes we can,” she continued. “I do not like this kind of hope, and we won’t take it nope, nope, nope.”

 McConnell is a prime example of what is wrong with Washington, DC.

The Establishment Republicans are so out-of-touch with their constituencies, that they actually believe their own press releases, while living in their secluded “Beltway Bubble”..

At a time when the current president is going down in flames, instead of roasting marshmallows over the bonfire, Vichy Republicans, like Mitch McConnell, continue to “reachiacross the aisle” to help save the Prevaricator-in-Chief.

These RINOs are so consumed by their avarice and quest to be just like their Democratic allies, that they have forgotten why they were elected in the first place. If their constituents had wanted to elect Democrats, they would have pulled the lever marked “DEMOCRAT”.

It’s time for McConnell, Maverick, Grahamnesty, Cryin’ John, and the rest of the GOP Elite girly-men to put their big boy pants on, and do the job they were elected to do: work for the betterment of this country, not for its destruction at the hands of Barack Hussein Obama. He’s doing fine with that…all by his lonesome.

If the Vichy Republicans had actually followed in the tradition of Ronald Reagan, and upheld the promises they made during the TEA Party Sweep of 2010, then our country would be in a lot better shape…and, so would their careers as professional politicians.

And, as I’ve said before, if the Vichy Republicans think that the new “Americans”, that they will create by voting for Amnesty, will actually vote for them, replacing us worrisome members of the Conservative Base, I have two bridges over the Mississippi River at Memphis to sell them. 

And, in the spirit of the nickname I’ve given them, and the courage they are showing, I will throw in two French Rifles from World War II….dropped once…never fired.

Palin, Abbott, & Nugent: Standing Up For Texas

February 20, 2014

 

palinbeigeoutfitabbottted nugentThe Arctic Fox, the Political Kingmaker herself, Former Alaskan Governor Sarah Palin has put in her two cents worth, concerning the important political races going on in the Lone Star State.

She posted the following on her Facebook Page, yesterday:

Texas, it starts with you!

2014 is here. The choices are becoming clearer, and the battle lines are being drawn. The GOP Beltway crowd has convinced itself that the way to maintain or retake the majority is through compromise and capitulation on important issues like amnesty, Obamacare, and the ever-increasing federal debt. They think that by making deals with a deeply unpopular and divisive incumbent president on issues that Americans oppose, they’ll somehow endear themselves to voters.

Enough is enough. The permanent political class in D.C. won’t listen. So, let’s start putting our efforts behind good new candidates who will go to Washington not to line their own pockets, but to help restore our country. It’s time to put inspiration, ingenuity, and integrity over incumbency in the GOP.

Let’s start in Texas. The lines couldn’t be clearer. Katrina Pierson is an emerging leader and important voice for the future of the grassroots conservative movement. Her life’s story is full of hardships she has fought to overcome, which taught her firsthand the importance of self-reliance, hard work, and the blessings of liberty.

A feisty fighter for freedom, Katrina is taking on a powerful incumbent who has so lost touch with the people of his district that he’s not even bothering to spend much time in Texas anymore. It’s not only his district he’s lost touch with, but also the issues important to the voters there. He used his powerful position to oppose the movement to defund Obamacare, has voted to raise the debt ceiling, and has been an advocate for the NSA intrusion into our freedoms. When asked about Katrina’s primary challenge, he said, “these things happen.” Yes, they do. We all know what happens when we come together to support a good candidate like Katrina – the permanent political class loses and We the People win! We win by electing a fighter we can depend on like Katrina Pierson. Ted Cruz calls Katrina “an utterly fearless principled conservative.” He should know. Katrina was among the conservative grassroots warriors in Texas who worked tirelessly to elect Senator Cruz.

Early voting started yesterday, Texas. Get out now and vote for Katrina. Send a message to the GOP elites on behalf of Katrina, just like you did for Ted Cruz in 2012.

And while you are out there voting for Katrina, check the box for another good conservative – Greg Abbott for Governor of Texas. Like Katrina, Greg has overcome many personal obstacles and challenges, which have made him a believer in the power of liberty and the need to defend our freedoms from the overreach of an out-of-control federal government. If he is good enough for Ted Nugent, he is good enough for me!

What does The Motor City Madman have to do with Greg Abbott, you ask? Well, besides the fact that they are both Great American Conservatives, Uncle Ted appeared with Texas Attorney General and Gubernatorial Candidate Abbott the other day, where, per usual, he spoke his mind…and got Liberals’ knickers in a twist…giving them an excuse for their usual outrageous outrage…as politico.com reports…

Texas Republican gubernatorial candidate Greg Abbott says Ted Nugent is accompanying him on the trail to expose Wendy Davis’s weakness on gun rights.

Abbott, who has come under fire for campaigning with the controversial rocker, told reporters at an event in North Texas on Tuesday that his opponent was “suffering” for her views on the Second Amendment, and that Nugent would help voters see her as a flip-flopper. He also said Davis’s association with President Barack Obama was a bigger turn-off to Texans than his sharing the stage with Nugent.

“Sen. Davis knows she is suffering with voters because of her flipping and flopping on 2nd Amendment gun laws, and she knows that Ted Nugent calls her out on her disregard for Second Amendment rights,” Abbott said, according to a Dallas Morning News report. “We are going to expose Sen. Davis’s weaknesses on the Second Amendment and show that in this area and in so many other areas, she represents the liberalism of Barack Obama that is so bad for Texas.”

Davis has said she would support an “open carry” law in Texas, expanding current gun laws to match Abbott’s views.

Nugent is an outspoken gun rights advocate, who once suggested he would either be “dead or in jail” if Obama were reelected in 2012. He has come under sharp criticism for once calling Obama a “subhuman mongrel.”

Speaking at a campaign event, Nugent introduced Abbott as his “friend” and “blood brother,” as well as “the epitome of what our founding fathers wanted as a representative,” according to the San Antonio Express.

“We don’t have to question Greg Abbott’s courage — because he invited me here today,” he said.

The Liberal Elite are always offended when an American Conservative “speaks the truth and shames the Devil”.

And, with them running such a political lightweight as Wendy Davis in Texas as their Gubernatorial Candidate, they realize that they are going to have to pull out all the stops, including going Full Alinsky, by initiating Rule #12 from “Rules for Radicals” :

Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.

By targeting Ted Nugent, the Liberal Elite are trying to put pressure on Abbott to apologize for the “harsh” words of the Heavy Metal Icon.

Evidently, the Democrats think that the Attorney General will roll over like a puppy who wants his belly rubbed, a la John Boehner and the rest of the Vichy Republicans, up in the Beltway.

To use a Southern idiom, since Greg Abbott is a Son of Dixie, as am I, the Liberal Elite are as goofy as a pet ‘coon, if they think that the Texas Attorney General is going to sacrifice Fellow Conservative Ted Nugent, to the Gods of Liberal Propaganda.

They keep this smear campaign up and the Republican Gubernatorial Candidate will soon remind those “Nattering Nabobs of Negativity” why

You Don’t Mess With Texas.

Vichy Republicans: “Leave Hillary Alone!”

February 18, 2014

Hillary Ramirez CartoonOn Monday, the Republican Establishment, or, as I have dubbed them, the Vichy Republicans, tried to get out in front of the upcoming battle for the Republican Presidential Candidate Nomination and the Presidential Election of 2016 itself, by hitting the talk show circuit to declare that the top Democrat Contender for the Presidential Candidate Nomination, Former First Lady, New York Senator, and Secretary of State, Hillary Rodham Clinton’s past is not to be brought up by any Republicans…except to challenge her record as Secretary of State.

Heck , they even trotted out “Mr. Nice Guy” and 2012 Presidential Election Loser Mitt Romney, to drive their point home about being “civil” toward Hillary.

What is the NE Moderate Republicans’ Club thinking? Do they want to lose to the Democrats…again? There are no Marquis of Kingsbury Rules in politics. Just as in any competition, you do not win by being a wuss. You suck it up and COMPETE. You give it your best shot. You give as good as you get.

These Vichy Republicans seem to live in their own little, isolated Beltway Bubble.

Quite frankly, if they do not want to fight for the most powerful Governmental Office in the World, they do not deserve to win the presidency

The past of the Clintons is heavily documented, and easily brought to the public eye. For example…

The following information is quoted from an article posted on AmericanThinker.com on 9/15/13, written by Clarice Feldman

…Hillary came to public attention with her graduation speech at Wellesley College.

She was chosen for this honor not because of grades or character or service to that community but because her influential roommate threatened a strike if she were not allowed to speak. Once the school caved to this demand, Hillary — who just two years earlier supported Senator Edward Brooke, the first black American to be elected to the Senate — hurled a vicious attack on him.. The charges were hurtful to him and without substance.

From Wellesley she went to Yale law school after which she moved to Washington, D.C. to take a job with the House Judiciary Committee investigating Watergate. She was fired from her job and from that point on distinguished herself as a public master of mendacity.

Jerry Zeifman, a lifelong Democrat, supervised the work of the 27-year-old, fired her, and has explained why:

…”Because she was a liar,” Zeifman said in an interview last week. “She was an unethical, dishonest lawyer. She conspired to violate the Constitution, the rules of the House, the rules of the committee and the rules of confidentiality.”

At about the same time, Hillary failed the District of Columbia bar exam, hardly one of the more difficult bar exams in the country. 

…In 1978 she turned a $1,000 cattle commodity trading account into $6,300 overnight and within 10 months into a $100,000 profit. While she first lied and claimed she learned how to make this incredible investment profit in the riskiest of endeavors by educating herself on commodity futures, in fact she was the beneficiary of preferred treatment by an Arkansan when her husband was Arkansas attorney general and slated to become that state’s governor, when in other words Bill was a person in a position to provide favors in return.

…She regularly covered up her husband’s misogynistic attacks on women, apparently accepted without protest his nuts and sluts defenses, and no one did a better job than she when pretty in pastel green and with a nice girlish headband she stood by her man while incongruously insisting she was no Tammy Wynette.

…Hillary’s corruption and preposterous lies continued into the White House. Special prosecutors investigating an apparently corrupt loan and land development deal had conducted subpoena searches for Hillary’s law billing records which she claimed had gone missing.

…they were suddenly turned over to the prosecutors by a White House aide, Carolyn Huber. Mrs. Huber said she had found them on a table in a room in the White House living quarters last August and put them in a box, then had realized this month that they were the records that had been subpoenaed.

Hillary became the first First Lady to have to testify to a federal grand jury. In the end she wasn’t indicted in the Whitewater scandal, in part quite obviously because of the unlikelihood that an overwhelmingly Democratic jury in the District of Columbia would ever convict her. What difference does it make? Someone who so obviously lied to escape criminal jeopardy would drive confidence in the fairness and honesty even lower than Obama has and a society in which the leaders are held in such disregard is a vastly weaker one in every respect.

…From the beginning of the Whitewater controversy, Hillary Clinton has maintained a public posture seemingly at odds with her actions. She was reluctant to release records during the 1992 campaign. She fought David Gergen’s recommendation to turn over all the records in 1993. She led White House opposition to the appointment of a special counsel in early 1994.

…In 1993 she made serious but untrue allegations about pharmaceutical companies gouging providers on children’s’ vaccines.

…Based on Hillary Clinton’s proclamation of a nonexistent crisis, Congress had been stampeded into passing unnecessary legislation. And even though the worst features of the administration plan had been dropped, the country was still stuck with a program that was more costly, cumbersome and wasteful than the one it replaced. What’s more, the alarming statistics Hillary had cited on the rise in prices of prescription drugs were another myth. It turned out that the Labor Department statisticians had gotten the numbers wrong.

…Only short sellers profited, among them a private hedge fund called ValuePartners I, run by Smith Capital Management of Little Rock, Arkansas. Hillary Clinton held an $87,000 stake in Value Partners I, which also owned a block of stock in United Healthcare, an HMO that stood to benefit under the Clinton reform plan. Lois Quam, a United Healthcare vice president, was a member of the task force.

Unlike the Carters, Bushes and Reagans, the Clintons failed to put their assets into a blind trust when they moved into the White House. Hillary resisted the notion that her financial affairs were anybody’s business but her own, and she reasoned that since she was not a government employee and the money was in her name, she didn’t have to resort to a trust.

…At the same time she barreled through that loser her husband drafted her to head a Task Force to draft new health legislation, Her clumsy handling of the Task Force certainly added to the opposition to this wonk wet dream and by 1994 it was dead. 

…As Secretary of State, Hillary proved even a bigger disaster to the country.

She, who had failed to provide the begged-for security to our ambassador and officials in Benghazi and who seems to have done nothing but participate in the bald-faced lies about the murderers and their motive was, in fact, the author of the Red Line dare that has plunged Obama into a Syrian disaster.

The red line was not a gaffe it was the considered policy of the United States. This, if anything, makes the whole incident more egregious as the nation was consciously committed to acting militarily (see Clinton’s statement about “contingencies” and “response”) in case of chemical weapons use in Syria and yet it is obvious no planning was ever accomplished in anticipation of such an event. Yet another blunder by the administration comes home to roost.

…Syria is just the last gasp of the Clinton Arab Spring idiocy and [Obama's] promise of a gentle tap with just a few hardly noticeable Tomahawks was just a continuation of the soft power idiocy promulgated by Clinton and her shrews. The same crew are wholly responsible for the Benghazi fiasco where Clinton’s denial of funding for adequate security led to [Gaddafi's] arms stockpiles drifting into unkind and uncaring hands.

If the Republican Establishment shafts those of us in the Conservative Base, once again, and rams through a “Moderate” Nominee, will the Conservative Base expend our energy to try to drag their sorry hindquarters over the Finish Line, as Sarah Palin attempted to drag John McCain’s? Or, will Conservatives, handcuffed by the admonition to “play nice” and marginalized by the Vichy Republicans, just say, “Fuhgeddaboutit!” and leave the GOP high and dry…to lose the presidency by an even greater margin than ever before?

It’s time for the Vichy Republicans to wake up and smell what they’re shoveling….before they’re covered in it.

Vichy Republicans Vote to Raise Debt Ceiling… and Shaft Conservative Base

February 12, 2014

Cartoon-Cruz-Vs-Establishment-600In the Mid-Term Elections of 2010, Conservative American Voters put our trust in the Republican Party, who like the snake who appeared to Eve, promised TEA Party members nationwide, that if Conservatives sent them to Washington, they would represent us, and vote to limit Obama and the Democrats’ dreams of Unlimited Governmental Control of our everyday lives and uphold the Constitutional, Conservative vision of limited Government championed by the Grassroots Movement.

They lied.

The first thing that Republicans did, was to elect sniveling, spineless Vichy Republican John Boehner, the Speaker of the House.

From that moment on, the Grand Old Party en masse, except for a few notable exceptions, have continued their slide toward becoming a perfect replica of the political party whom they are supposed to be opposing.

The insistence by the Northeast Republicans Club, or Vichy Republicans, toward Moderate Mediocrity, has cost them the last two Presidential Elections, and could cause them the upcoming 2014 Mid -Term Elections, as well.

On Tuesday, this hardly august group continued their alienation of their Conservative Base.

Fox News relates the whole, sorry story…

The House voted Tuesday to raise the government’s borrowing limit, as GOP leaders backed down from a potential confrontation with Democrats by declining to seek any concessions in exchange for the increase.

The debt-ceiling bill passed on a 221-201 vote, and now goes to the Senate for final approval.

The vote comes after Republican leaders backed off their strategy of trying to use the debt limit to force spending cuts or other concessions. In 2011, President Obama yielded to similar demands but has since said he would not negotiate with Republicans over the matter.

House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, swiftly teed up the vote Tuesday after failing to get enough conservative support for a plan that would have tied the debt ceiling measure to one reversing cuts to military pensions. Another failed proposal had tied the debt cap hike to the Keystone pipeline.

The House, as part of a separate bill, nevertheless voted Tuesday to restore full cost of living increases to pension benefits for younger military retirees. The final vote was 326-90.

But Boehner’s decision to move ahead on the debt-ceiling legislation without any concessions signals a potentially new approach on these so-called must-pass bills. His party was bruised last year after Republicans tried to extract changes to ObamaCare as part of a budget bill, resulting in a partial government shutdown that lasted until Boehner finally called a relatively clean budget bill to the floor — which passed on mostly Democratic votes.

The vote Tuesday followed the same pattern. Boehner relied on mostly Democrats to bring the bill over the finish line 193 Democrats voted for the bill, while just 28 Republicans did the same. Boehner and other GOP leaders were among those who voted yes.

Boehner announced before the vote that that was the strategy. “We’ll let the Democrats put the votes up. We’ll put a minimum number of (GOP) votes up to get it passed,” Boehner said. “We’ll let his party give him the debt ceiling increase that he wants.”

But the vote caused consternation among conservative groups that have pushed Congress — and particularly Tea Party-aligned lawmakers they helped elect — to rein in deficit spending, in part by extracting spending cuts wherever possible.

“A clean debt ceiling is a complete capitulation on the Speaker’s part and demonstrates that he has lost the ability to lead the House of Representatives, let alone his own party,” Jenny Beth Martin, co-founder of Tea Party Patriots, said in a statement.

The measure approved by the House does not raise the debt limit by a set amount but does suspend it through March 15, 2015.

One of those notable exceptions whom I alluded to earlier, is Texas Senator Ted Cruz, a Reagan Conservative and an American Patriot. After the traitorous vote on Tuesday, Cruz issued the following statement:

Today’s vote is yet another example that establishment politicians from both parties are simply not listening to the American people. Outside the beltway, Americans of all political stripes understand that we cannot keep spending money we don’t have.

Some members of Congress care so much about being praised by the Washington media that they’re willing to mortgage our children’s future. They pretend we don’t have a problem and can just kick the can down the road.

Let’s be clear about the motive behind this vote — there are too many members of Congress who think they can fool people and they will forget about it the next week. But sometimes, come November, the people remember.

Being an American by Birth, and Southern by the Grace of God, my favorite play of all time is “Lil’ Abner”. One of my favorite scenes in the movie they made of it, which starred Petter Palmer as Abner, Stubby Kaye as Marryin’ Sam, and the great Billie Hayes as Mammy Yoakum, was when Senator Fogbound (what a great name) holds a meeting with the townsfolk of Dogpatch, to tell them that they had to evacuate, due to an upcoming “A-tomic” Bomb Test.

Sen. Fogbound: I know y’all have been wondering what I have been doing up there in Washington on your behalf.

Mammy Yoakum: We didn’t care…as long as you wuz up there…and we wuz down here!

That was 1959…before the Cuban Missile Crisis, before Vietnam…before Ithe Munich Olympics…before the Iranian Hostage Crisis…AND, before President Barack Hussein Obama.

It was a more innocent time, when, even as horribly self-serving as the worst of our Senators and Congressmen were, we knew that they still were answerable to their respective constituencies. Unfortunately, in 2014, we cannot afford that naivete anymore. Our “so-called” Congressional  Representatives, the before-mentioned Vichy Republicans, do not care what we think, because they, like their fellow Progressives on the other side of the aisle, believe that they know what is best for us…and what will save their phony baloney jobs.

However, they are wrong…and Senator Cruz is right: 

COME NOVEMBER…AMERICANS WILL REMEMBER.

Palin Has 70% Favorability Rating Among Republican Voters. Libs Fear Arctic Fox.

February 1, 2014

pailinbiggulp2I remember the first time I heard anything about Sarah Palin.

I was listening to Glenn Beck, who was talking about possible running mates for the less-than-appealing old codger, John “Maverick” McCain. He started describing the very real possibility that the Republicans were actually going to choose a woman to run as their Vice-Presidential Candidate. I immediately thought to myself, “Self…this chick had best be someone spectacular to liven up this upcoming ‘Campaign of the Walking Dead’.”

And…she was.

From the moment Alaskan Governor Sarah Palin was announced, she became a shimmering star in in an otherwise dark and dull Republican Presidential Campaign. Her infectious smile,quick wit, and down-home common sense way of speaking to the hearts of those of us living here in America’s Heartland, (“Flyover Country” to you Liberal snots, on both sides of the aisle, living in the Northeast and the Left Coast) endeared her to average Americans, who could not relate to the professional politicians ensconced in the Halls of Power in Washington, DC.

We watched, with smiles on our faces as she stopped her Campaign Bus, to run into Walmart to get diapers for Trig, her special baby.

She was approachable. She was one of us.

We cheered her on, as she made “Uncle Joe” Biden look like the buffoon he is, during their debates.

And, we watched as she grew in national recognition, while fending off the relentless, unscrupulous attacks by Democrat Operatives, including the Main Stream Media, and late night talk show hosts, such as those two old pervs, Bill Maher and David Letterman.

We even had to witness McCain’s own Election Staff turn against her, as her popularity eclipsed Maverick’s, ruffling the feathers of the GOP Establishment, whom I lovingly refer to as the “Vichy Republicans”.

After all her efforts to drag McCain’s sorry carcass over the finish line failed, instead of fading away in obscurity, she became ever more nationally-recognized than before, becoming both a Political Pundit and a King-maker.

Wherever she speaks, she is met by huge crowds, unlike Obama, who has to hold invitation-only events, so that he does not get booed off the stage.

Her magnificent speech at last year’s CPAC Conference set the stage for her re-entry into politics, after a short time away, and set Conservative hearts on fire, including mine.

Allow me to relate a seminal moment from that speech, which has become an instant Sarah Palin Classic:

She was bringing up some spot-on political points, when, all of the sudden, she got a mischievous smile on her face and began telling the audience how Todd gave her a wonderful gift the Christmas before last: a gun rack for her ATV. She talked about how cool it was, and then told the crowd that, for this Christmas, she gave Todd a new hunting rifle. She quipped,

Yep, Todd got the rifle and I got the rack.

As the stunned audience quickly broke out in thunderous laughter and applause, Sarah stood there, grinning like the Cheshire Cat, while, at the same time, reaching under the podium to retrieve a 44-ounce Super Big Gulp Diet Coke, in a dig against NYC Mayor Bloomberg’s baning of large soft drinks. She slowly sipped it, still grinning, then holding it over her head , imitating Lady Liberty holding her torch. The picture of this wonderful moment immediately went viral, much to the chagrin of Liberals, on both sides of the political aisle, whose heads, of course, exploded, like balloons which have blown up beyond their usefulness.

Indeed, as much as the Democrats and Vichy Republicans want Sarah Palin to fade away into obscurity, the Arctic Fox is not going anywhere. And, because of that, their attacks are as relentless as ever.

Liberals, on both sides of the political aisle, will tell you whom they fear.

In fact, in their Crony Capitalistic Hearts, they are very afraid…and, with good reason. Check out this story, which ran on newsmax.com on Thursday:

Republicans rate Sarah Palin higher than every potential 2016 presidential contender, even though she is not even considered to be in the running, a new poll has found.

A Public Policy Polling survey conducted Jan. 23-26 showed that the former governor of Alaska has a 70 percent favorability rating among GOP primary voters, topping six other potential candidates in the poll, even though her name was not on the list of 2016 GOP candidates to choose from.

“The best-liked person we tested on this poll with Republican primary voters is actually Sarah Palin,” the poll noted.

In the survey of 845 registered voters, including 457 Republican primary voters, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee tops the list of possible presidential contenders, with a favorability rating of 64 percent. Fifty-eight percent of respondents have a positive view of both Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul and Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan, the former 2012 vice presidential nominee.

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush has a 56 percent favorability rating, and 45 percent of respondents view Texas Sen. Ted Cruz in a positive light. Embattled New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie comes in last with a 40 percent favorability rating.

Huckabee, the former 2008 presidential candidate who won the Iowa caucuses, was chosen as the most preferred candidate to get the GOP nomination from a crowded field of nine other possible rivals.

The results suggest that little has come from his recent controversial remarks about women.

If Governor Palin were to entertain the idea of throwing her hat into the Political Ring once again, the Democrats and the Democrat-Lite Vichy Republicans, would once again attack her with a savagery, not unlike like Miley Cyrus and Justin Bieber fighting over a bong hit.

There is a Culture War, which has been going on in our country for a while now, between the Republican Establishment up in the Northeast, and Conservative Americans, living in the Heartland.

What sticks in my craw is the hubris involved. Now, I have several dear Conservative friends in the NE, heck, my bride is from MI, moved down to MS 30+ years ago and used to do reenactments on the Confederate side.

That being said, the “Northeast Republicans Club’s” standard, as exemplified by their last Convention,the subsequent Presidential Candidate Nomination of Mitt Romney, and their ever-escalating embrace of Liberal Political Ideology, is to look down their noses at the rest of the country, as if we are a bunch of hicks, because we still believe in Reagan Conservatism.

They view Sarah the same way. They believe that anyone who is not from Hahvahd, some other Ivy League School, or, their region of the country, is a stupid bumpkin.

I suggest that they leave the Northeast sometime and travel throughout the Heartland of this great country.

They might learn a thing or two about Conservatism.

I, along with Sarah Palin, Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, and the majority of average Americans, here in “Flyover Country”,remain Reagan Conservatives…and, are proud of it.

If the Vichy Republicans ignore the millions of Americans, who compose their Conservative Base, they will never win another Presidential Election.  

Count on it.

Until He Comes,

KJ
