The Illegal Alien Invasion: Boehner Talks Tough. Sessions Talks Tougher.

July 30, 2014

Obamamexicobranco 7292014As the invasion across our Southern Border continues unabated, the GOP Establishment is working on presenting a bill to “address the problem” and keep their “friends”, like the US Chamber of Commerce, happy at the same time.

Speaker of the House John Boehner is “talking the talk”. But, will he “walk the walk”?

From the Office of Speaker of the House John Boehner:

House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) issued the following statement after Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) said he would attempt to add comprehensive immigration reform to any House-passed bill to address the current border crisis:

“Senator Reid, embarrassed that he cannot strong-arm the Senate into passing the blank check President Obama demanded, is making a deceitful and cynical attempt to derail the House’s common-sense solution.  So let me be as clear as I can be with Senator Reid: the House of Representatives will not take up the Senate immigration reform bill or accept it back from the Senate in any fashion.  Nor will we accept any attempt to add any other comprehensive immigration reform bill or anything like it, including the DREAM Act, to the House’s targeted legislation, which is meant to fix the actual problems causing the border crisis.  Such measures have no place in the effort to solve this crisis, and any attempt to exploit this crisis by adding such measures will run into a brick wall in the People’s House.

“While the White House has abandoned all pretense of governing and the Senate is doing almost nothing to address our struggling economy, Republicans remain committed to addressing the American people’s priorities, and that includes passing a responsible bill this week to help secure our border and return these children safely to their home countries.” 

Okay, Mr. Speaker. What happens if the President of the United States decides to pass Amnesty by Executive Order?

It seems that I am not the only American concerned with that possible eventuality.

Senator Jeff Sessions (R., Ala.) trashed the proposed House Bill, yesterday, labeling it a “surrender to a lawless president” because it does not include any language to prevent President Obama from expanding his unilateral legalization of illegal immigrants.

Here’s the statement, courtesy of nationalreview.com:

The Obama Administration has openly declared its plan to implement a unilateral executive amnesty for 5–6 million more illegal immigrants. This unlawful amnesty—urged on by congressional Democrats—would include work permits, taking jobs directly from millions of struggling American citizens.

Any action Congress might consider to address the current border crisis would be futile should the President go forward with these lawless actions. Congress must speak out and fight against them. It must use its spending power to stop the President’s executive amnesty.

That the House leaders’ border package includes no language on executive actions is surrender to a lawless President. And it is a submission to the subordination of congressional power.

After years of falling wages and rising joblessness, American workers are pleading for someone to hear them. How can it be that our President is brazenly advertising that he will nullify and strip away American workers’ immigration protections, and their own elected leaders will not rise to their defense? Or to the defense of our laws and our Constitutional order?

There are other grave concerns with the Granger package as well: because it does not fix our asylum rules and loopholes, the end result of the additional judges and hearings will be more illegal immigrants gaining asylum and access to U.S. welfare. It is a plan for expedited asylum, not expedited removal.

Nor will this package make our rogue President actively enforce anything, coming nowhere close to the kinds of reasonable enforcement activities needed to restore the interior application of our immigration laws.

And finally, a package that is silent on blocking amnesty creates an opportunity for Senate Democrats to add elements of their party’s open borders and mass immigration agenda.

This legislation is unworthy of support.

Senator Sessions is a breath of fresh air, standing strong for Conservative principles, which Moderates like Speaker of the House “Cryin’ John” Boehner give lip service to, before they stab their Conservative base in the back.

What is a Moderate? You see that term being used all the time, exclusively among the Leadership of the Republican Party.

I believe that these “Moderates” are wannabe Democrats, who are content to work behind enemy lines.Vichy Republicans, if you will.

They have been working within the Republican Party for the last couple of decades, slowly pushing the party’s ideology further and further to the Left of the Political Spectrum, until now, when, except for actual Conservatives like Jeff Sessions,  the GOP seems to be just a slightly less radical extension of the Party of the Jackass.

The problem is, all of this jackassery is happening within the ranks of the Leadership of the Republican Party, while the base of the GOP remains solidly Conservative.

In 2010, as a result of the passage of Obamacare, by the Democrat Majority of both houses, Americans stood up on their hind legs, formed Grass Roots Tea Party Groups, holding rallies featuring Conservatives such as Lt. Col. Allen West, Sarah Palin, and, the now-Establishment Republican, Marco Rubio.

The result was a Mid-term Electoral Tsunami, in which Republicans regained control of the House, and made gains in the Senate.

However, since then, the Republican Establishment has turned their back on the Tea Parties, and the Conservative Base in general, showing their elitism by siding with the Democrats regarding such issues as the Debt Ceiling, Homosexual Marriage and “Immigration Reform”, i.e, AMNESTY.

The Republican Establishment had better think about which side their bread is buttered on. If they don’t, I hope they have a trade to fall back on.

At a time when the current president is going down in flames and taking our Sovereign Nation with him, instead of fulfilling the wishes of their citizenry, 77u% of whom want these “Little Rascals to be sent back to Latin American countries they came from, Vichy Republicans are “reaching across the aisle” to help save the Prevaricator-in-Chief, by bringing forth bills that do not adequately address the problem of Illegal Immigration.

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 Cryin’ John, Maverick, Grahamnesty, 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.

And, as I’ve said before, if the Vichy Republicans think that the new “Americans” they’re potentially creating 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.

It is time for Conservatives to stand up for ourselves and our country once again.

Please burn up the Congressional Switchboard today, with your calls to your Representatives, telling them not to pass the House Bill.

Remind these “public servants” that the Mid-Term Elections are in November, and these elections have the potential to dwarf the results of 2010’s, in terms of COnservative Backlash.

It is time for Payback. And, Payback is a…well…you know.

Cochran Vs. McDaniel: The Long, Hot Mississippi Summer Continues

July 9, 2014

Cochran McDanielsWell, friends, as the legendary Jerry Lee Lewis used to belt out on Saturday nights, down here in a dive known as Hernando’s Hideaway, there’s a “Whole Lotta Shakin’ Goin’ On” concerning the still-contested results of the Mississippi Senate Race Republican Run-off, which saw incumbent Thad Cochran narrowly defeat TEA Party Newcomer Chris McDaniel, thanks to Black Democrats, whom the Cochran Campaign paid to vote for the Senator, in the Open Primary Election.

McDaniel gained another vocal supporter in his quest to call for a formal investigation of the election results , yesterday.

Politico.com reported that

Sen. Ted Cruz is calling for an official investigation into the Republican Senate primary runoff in Mississippi between Sen. Thad Cochran and the challenger, state Sen. Chris McDaniel.

The Texas Republican on Monday evening called the runoff contest “appalling” and said that allegations of voter fraud need to be investigated.

“We’ve seen serious allegations of voter fraud,” Cruz said on “The Mark Levin Show.” “And I very much hope that no Republican was involved in voter fraud. But these allegations need to be vigorously investigated and anyone involved in criminal conduct should be prosecuted.”

Earlier in the program, Cruz criticized the Washington establishment for its meddling in the runoff: “What happened in Mississippi was appalling. Primaries are always rough and tumble, but the conduct of the Washington, D.C., machine in the Mississippi runoff was incredibly disappointing.”

And, of course, it was not very long after that, that the Vichy Republicans answered back, as rollcall.com reported…

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky dismissed allegations from Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, of impropriety in the Mississippi Republican primary — but noted it’s an issue for state officials to decide.

“I assume the people in Mississippi will look at what ever complaints are filed,” McConnell told reporters Tuesday when asked to comment on Cruz’s call for an investigation in to voter fraud. “That is what typically happens in a post election situation if there are complaints filed they are dealt with at the state level.”

“I think it’s pretty clear who won. Sen. [Thad Cochran, R-Miss.,] ran a very successful runoff campaign and got the most votes,” McConnell added. “But anybody is entitled to contest the outcome and that well may happen in Mississippi.”

Cochran defeated state Sen. Chris McDaniel by more than 7,000 votes in the GOP runoff on June 24. The senator did so, in part, by reaching out to African American voters, who tend to vote for Democrats in general elections.

Back on Capitol Hill, the Cochran-McDaniel feud has become a proxy fight between McConnell and Cruz. McConnell backed the incumbent, Cochran. Cruz, a tea party conservative, previously supported Senate Conservatives Fund, which backed McDaniel.

Meanwhle, down here in the Magnolia State, this war is being fought in the trenches…

A lawyer for Chris McDaniel said campaign canvassers started going through records at every courthouse statewide on Monday, and he’s confident McDaniel can successfully overturn the June 24 GOP runoff for U.S. Senate.

The Thad Cochran campaign countered that few voting irregularities are being found, and the vote should stand.

The state GOP on Monday delivered county-certified official results to the secretary of state’s office, and Cochran’s lead expanded from about 6,800 in unofficial results election night to 7,667. This delivery marked the start of a 12-day period for examination of ballots and a challenge of results.

“As you know there have been lots of allegations and lots of reports of voter fraud — all types of calls are coming into the campaign and coming into my law office, and we are following up on all those leads,” said Mitch Tyner, an attorney for McDaniel and former Republican candidate for governor. “In fact, as we’ve gone through this process, we are surprised by the amount of evidence that continues to come forward that shows us there has indeed been election fraud in this case.”

Cochran spokesman Jordan Russell on Monday refuted the McDaniel campaign’s claim there was fraud or thousands of illegal votes and says results appear to be within normal margins of election errors.

“We have representatives at all 82 courthouses today … and have been pleased with the results,” Russell said. “The county-by-county results reported thus far are revealing an extremely low number of crossover votes from the June 24 election. As the process moves forward, the conversation is shifting from wild, baseless accusations to hard facts. As we have said from the beginning, the runoff results are clear: the majority of Mississippians voted for Senator Thad Cochran.”

Cochran won the June 24 runoff, 51 percent to McDaniel’s 49 percent. McDaniel had led Cochran by less than 1,500 votes in the June 3 primary vote. Cochran wooed Democratic and independent voters for the runoff, and McDaniel’s campaign has alleged many ineligible voters — including those who voted Democratic on June 3 — provided Cochran his margin. McDaniel supporters have accused the Cochran camp of buying Democratic votes and usurping the GOP primary process. Cochran’s campaign has said the claims are baseless and McDaniel needs to “put up or shut up” and accept the results and move on.

Tyner said he is uncertain of the number of ineligible votes the campaign has found. McDaniel’s campaign reported 4,900 late last week, and McDaniel in television interviews over the weekend said 5,000.

The McDaniel campaign has said a majority of these are people who voted in the June 3 Democratic primary, then crossed over June 24 and voted in the Republican runoff, which is prohibited by state law.

“I know there are several thousand that are absolute ineligible voters,” Tyner said. “… Later this week we should have some idea what all they’ve found.”

Both campaigns had people at courthouses across the state Monday, going through poll books and other records.

Russell said he didn’t have totals, but listed the number of potential crossover votes found in four counties: Perry, 1; Lauderdale, 7; Pontotoc, 3; Leake, 5.

Neither Tyner nor McDaniel campaign spokesman Noel Fritsch could say when a legal challenge would come. But Fritsch said “a challenge certainly does look likely … any day now.”

Last week, McDaniel offered up to 15 $1,000 rewards for people who provide information leading to voter fraud arrest and conviction.

Tyner said Monday the campaign is just beginning to look at the 19,000 absentee ballots in the race “we know that is very ripe for fraud.”

“I can’t remember the exact quote, but I think it was (Hattiesburg) Mayor DuPree who said that no way that voter ID is going to stop much fraud in Mississippi,” Tyner said. “In fact, he said if you want to stop fraud in Mississippi, you want to get on top of absentee ballots, that’s where the fraud is occurring.”

Both campaigns thanked the states’ circuit clerks, whom they say are helping them go through records.

A challenge would start with the state party, then go to circuit court.

Meanwhile, Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann, amid calls for him to step in as accusations of illegal voting fly, says his office doesn’t have a dog in the hunt — party primaries are run by the parties, not the state.

Hosemann said his office “has no prosecutorial authority” and doesn’t possess any of the voting records.

Hosemann said his office will issue a report on the runoff — as it does with all elections — to the Legislature and public. He wouldn’t give a time frame on when that report will come out. He said his office received about 700 calls on the runoff election day, and he had about 25 observers in the field statewide.

McDaniel supporters have also questioned Hosemann being paid $2,600 by the Cochran campaign, according to campaign finance reports.

Hosemann said the campaign paid him for research he did when he was considering a run for the U.S. Senate seat himself.

“We had research that we had done in anticipation of the Senate race here, so the Cochran campaign purchased that from us, from our personal campaign,” Hosemann said. “We had paid for it, and they bought it from us.”

Also on Monday, a federal judge said he’s likely to send a lawsuit filed over access to records from the runoff from Oxford to Jackson.

Texas-based conservative group True the Vote and some Mississippi residents had filed suit July 1 against the state GOP and Hosemann saying it was denied access to voting records from counties and the party refused to delay certification of the vote.

U.S. District Judge Michael P. Mills on Monday said it appears the suit should have been filed in the state’s southern district instead of northern, and gave the parties until July 18 to show why it shouldn’t be moved.

The reason that I have been getting requests from my readers to cover this story, is that it is still a national story.

The battle down here in Mississippi reflects the divisive battle being waged at a national level between the old guard “Moderate” (i.e., Liberal), Vichy Republicans and the Grassroots Conservative Political Movement, known as the TEA Party.

It is good to see Senator Cruz add his voice to this important battle for what is fair and just.

It has become very apparent to those of us in the Conservative Base of the Republican Party that the old guard Vichy Republicans, like Senator Thad Cochran, care more about their Capitol Hill way of life than their country and their constituents. It is time for them to get out of the way, and allow Sen. Cruz and these new TEA Party Conservatives, like Chris McDaniels, to lead the battle against Obama and his corrupt anti-American Administration.

Because, as the old saying goes,

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

Cochran’s Pyrrhic Victory: Bribery, Racism, and Fear…Oh, My!

June 26, 2014

Thad Cochran CartoonWe had a dream and the dream is still with us. Today the conservative movement took a backseat to liberal Democrats in Mississippi. – Chris McDaniel, 6/24/2014

The fallout continues, as more and more information pours in, as to how incumbent Mississippi Republican Senator Thad Cochran achieved his victory in Monday night’s Primary Election against TEA Party Candidate Chris McDaniel.

The truth ain’t pretty.

The New York Times reported that

With an unusual assist from African-American voters and other Democrats who feared his opponent, Senator Thad Cochran on Tuesday beat back a spirited challenge from State Senator Chris McDaniel, triumphing in a Republican runoff and defeating the Tea Party in the state where the movement’s hopes were bright.

“We all have a right to be proud of our state tonight,” Mr. Cochran said at his victory party in Jackson, Miss. “This is your victory.”

Mr. McDaniel, speaking in Hattiesburg, was angry, and he did not hesitate to say so. “There is something a bit strange, there is something a bit unusual about a Republican primary that’s decided by liberal Democrats,” he said.

He accused Mr. Cochran of abandoning the conservative movement. “So much for principles,” he said.

Mr. McDaniel, an uncompromising conservative, relied on the muscle of outside groups and the enthusiasm of conservative voters who are weary of Mr. Cochran’s old-school Washington ways.

The 76-year-old senator ran a largely sleepy campaign until the primary on June 3, when he was edged out by Mr. McDaniel but won enough votes to keep his opponent from outright victory. Mr. Cochran, who is seeking his seventh term, used the past three weeks to turn out Democratic voters — especially African-Americans — to make up that deficit.

Which begs the question: Why would a bunch of Black Democrats down here in Mississippi, vote for a 76-year-old “cracka”, who bills himself as a “Conservative Republican”?

Back on June 17th, Breitbart News reported the following:

Rickey Cole, the chairman of the Mississippi Democratic Party, says Cochran’s allies are paying Democratic operatives to help get out the vote with a questionable tactic.

“Pete Perry” – the chairman of the Hinds County Republican Party – “is paying James ‘Scooby Doo’ Warren thousands of dollars to funnel to black preachers and others to get-out-the-vote for Cochran,” Cole wrote in a Facebook message sent to a top aide of state Sen. Chris McDaniel’s campaign, Ric McCluskey, just after midnight Tuesday.

“Large sums of cash are being passed around. These guys are old school ‘walking around money’ vote buyers,” Cole wrote in the message, obtained by Breitbart News, adding, “Need some out of state media to put some heavy scrutiny on Pete asap.”

In a phone interview, Cole confirmed he made the allegations and that he thinks there should be an investigation. “I can’t prove any of it yet,” Cole said. “This is just what I had heard. It think it warrants investigating, because I don’t know all of the details on it I just got word that James [‘Scooby Doo’ Warren] was bragging that he got money.”

“The reason I sent that text is because I wanted the McDaniel people to know that there was an effort out here ongoing to mobilize Democratic voters to vote for Cochran,” Cole added. “That’s simply because I don’t like the idea of Democrats voting in the Republican primary or Republicans voting in the Democratic primary. I believe members of each party should vote in their own primaries.”

Warren confirmed to the Clarion-Ledger that he is working for Cochran, and got approval from Washington, D.C., Democrats to do so. “I called D.C. and told them what was going on with the tea party,” Warren said. “But I can’t do anything after the 24th because I’m a Democrat … Whoever wins will have to deal with me in November.”

In the story, Warren is not quoted addressing allegations of impropriety from Cole.

In an interview Monday, Perry said he hopes that money routed through him won’t end up used to pay for votes.

When asked if he thinks there’s payments for votes happening in this election, Perry said that “I certainly hope not” adding that while he’s “been against that all my life since the 60s” he has “seen it done and I’m totally against it.”

And, if paying them off did not motivate Black Democrats to vote for an old White Republican, the Cochran Campaign used another time-proven tactic.

Can you say, FEAR, boys and Girls? Sure you can. Check this Cochran Campaign Flyer out:

Cochran Flyer #2

The undisputed Godfather of Conservative Radio Talk Show Hosts, Rush Limbaugh, said the following about this disgusting flyer on his program , yesterday:

Now, it would be one thing if the Democrats did that. They do it every election cycle anyway. But for them to be joined, even if from a distance, by the Republican establishment here, simply confirms what we have long said on this program about establishment Washington. It is ruling class vs. country class. It’s elites vs. the plebes. You and me are the plebes, and they are the elites, and they are aligning together.

My friend Mark Levin, F. Lee Levin, makes the point that Washington is not going to be fixed from Washington. This proves it, if there was any proof needed. Washington is not going to be fixed in Washington. The establishment is going to align itself every which way it can against any outside challenger, like this Tea Party candidate. But it does look like African-Americans.

Democrat African-Americans really did secure the victory for Thad Cochran in a Republican primary. So here we have a result that is not representative of the Republican Party thinking in Mississippi. The technique that was used and the manner in which this was achieved is reprehensible.

Former Alaskan Governor Sarah Palin also shot from the hip, concerning Cochran’s “shenanigans” on her Facebook Page, yesterday:

With Friends Like These, Who Needs Liberals?

As we pointed out last week (see: http://t.co/y8T64iZQyR), there were several potentially illegal political games afoot in Mississippi to motivate Democrat voters to “switch” over to the GOP for a day to help save a 42 year Republican member of Congress. On top of that, millions of dollars from out of state liberal billionaires like Mike Bloomberg poured in at the last minute on that same incumbent’s behalf. You have to ask yourself why? When a primary election is lost fairly, I am all for unifying behind the victor and joining forces to fight in November. When an election is questionable, with potential legal violations, politics MUST be put aside and the irregularities MUST be fully investigated. Regardless of party, we owe it to voters and to democracy within our Republic. The integrity of the vote speaks directly to the integrity of those who serve and the trust we ask the American public to put in our institutions. I told Chris McDaniel last night that I stand with his effort to get to the bottom of this – he needs to know average, but tremendously concerned, citizens want to make sure the integrity of last night’s results in Mississippi are verified. Voting shenanigans never cease to amaze, but they had better cease altogether for the sake of ethical elections. And any GOP “architect” behind these abhorrent voting shenanigans should be ashamed of this Pyrrhic victory for the establishment. If we find out it’s true that some of the characters alleged to have masterminded this Mississippi hijacking are the same ones who’ve tried to destroy other Republicans’ careers, they need to be taken to task and only be hired by unethical campaigns. Fool us once, shame on you; fool us twice, shame on us. And if any news organization ignores a free and fair elections issue like this, than whether left-leaning or center right, their silence will speak volumes.

As a Mississippian, I have lost all faith in my state’s Republican Party. As regular readers know, I have gone after the out-of-touch National GOP Establishment incessantly, bestowing upon them the title of “Vichy Republicans”. However, in my naiveté, it never occurred to me that a politician from the Magnolia State, where we pride ourselves on our gentlemanly manners and Christian upbringing, could be just a big a cold-hearted snake as the spineless Speaker of the House and that product of Chicago Backroom Politics, the fallen messiah in the White House.

Brother,was I wrong.

So, don’t come begging to me and my fellow Conservative Mississippi Republicans for “unity” this November, Senator Cochran. After last night, it will probably fall on deaf ears.

Shame on you.

It’s TEA Time in Mississippi!

June 24, 2014

Cochran McDanielsWhen our Founding Fathers were deciding what sort of government that they would put in place in this brave new world, they came up with the idea of a Constitutional Republic.

Quite different from a democracy, this new government would rely on representatives of the people, who would be chosen by popular vote to come to the capital of the nation and represent their community.

Our Founders decided to base the government on a political structure, which they were familiar with. They decided to have three branches to this government:  the Judicial, the Legislative, and the Executive.

The Legislative Branch was based on Parliament with the Senate being the Upper House or House of Lords and the House of Representatives being the Lower House or House of Commons. The Founding Fathers envisioned this to be a citizen-led government. A government populated by citizen farmers, who came to the nation’s capital, served their term,and then went home to their communities, giving another servant a chance to serve their nation. As time went on, these servants would be elected to more than one term, and became enticed by Lobbyists and Special Interest Groups  during their time in Washington to the point that they decided that they liked the power and prestige of being in the nation’s capital,  better than they did coming home to be with their communities. And, thus, the professional politician was born.

Today, in my home state of Mississippi, we have a chance to end the four-decade term of a professional politician: A Republican, who has crossed the political aisle time and again, to vote alongside his fellow professional politicians on the Democrat side of the before-mentioned aisle.

Thad Cochran has been in the United States Senate for 40 years. He is being challenged by TEA party Conservative Republican, Chris McDaniels, whose impressive performance during the Republican Primary Campaign, forced Cochran into today’s Run-off Election.

Living here in the Northwest Corner of the Magnolia State has provided me a bird’s-eye view of the political fight between Cochran, a member of the “Moderate” GOP Establishment, and the newcomer, McDaniels, who has run the same sort of Grassroots Campaign which won the House of Representatives for the Republicans in 2010.

Of course, Cochran had a seemingly unlimited Campaign Budget, being funded by the GOP Establishment, and the Political Action Committees which support them. The majority of the political ads from Cochran’s Campaign curiously spent more time tearing down McDaniels’ qualifications for the Senate Seat, than they did listing Cochran’s accomplishments.

McDaniels’ modest ads simply put forth the notion that Cochran has been in the Senate way too long, and new, fresh, Conservative ideas are needed.

To say that this was a knockdown drag-out, mud-slinging campaign, would be an understatement.

It started out with a supposed McDaniels supporter sneaking into the Nursing Home where Cochran’s wife lives, in order to take pictures of her. McDaniels’ Campaign stated after it happened that they don’t know the idiot.

Now, up here in my town, one of the official members of Cochran’s Campaign Staff, just got the boot for being caught pulling up and defacing McDaniels Campaign Signs.

Three years after the now-legendary Grassroots Movement known as “The Tea Party”, the Republican Party is in a state of disarray and discontent, to put it mildly. The Republican Establishment, or Vichy Republicans, as I have dubbed them, are desperately clinging to the Washingtonian Status Quo: reaching across the aisle, and going along to get along, known non-politically as “caving in”, while pushing potential Presidential Candidates for 2016 whose platforms are so similar to those of their potential Democrat Opponents as to be virtually indistinguishable.

Oblivious of their past failures (i.e., Dole, McCain, and Romney), while pursuing their milksop Political Philosophy, the Vichy Republicans, or GOPe, as an internet friend has named them, cling to their mission to hold onto their cushy Seats of Power, by playing an old, tired political game.

Make no mistake, they will defend the Washingtonian Status Quo to their last breath, and savage anyone who threatens it, with the help of their allies from “across the aisle”, the Democrats and their minions in the Main Stream media. Look at how they have attacked Former Alaskan Governor and Republican Vice-Presidential Candidate, Sarah Palin, in the past, and now the TEA Party Conservatives in the House and Senate.

They have called their fellow Republicans everything but Children of God.

The greatest U.S. President of our Generation, Ronald Wilson Reagan, once said,

Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.

Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, and other “New Conservatives” seem to be willing to do just that.

If the old guard Vichy Republicans, like Senator Thad Cochran, 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. Cruz and these new TEA Party Conservatives, like Chris McDaniels, 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.

Down Goes Cantor!: Aftershocks

June 12, 2014

Cantor #2

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.

Down Goes Cantor! Hey, Vichy Republicans…Can You Hear Us Now?

June 11, 2014

conservative1Last night, a history-making event happened in the Commonwealth of Virginia: a sitting House Majority Leader failed to win their State Primary Election.

Establishment “Moderate” Republican, Eric Cantor, got fired by his Bosses…the Republican Conservative Base.

Foxnews.com reports that…

In a stunning upset, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor lost the GOP Virginia primary Tuesday night to Dave Brat, an economics professor and political novice.

The Associated Press called the race for Cantor about an hour after polls closed at 7 p.m. ET.

Cantor is the second-most powerful member of the U.S. House and was widely seen as the next in line to succeed House Speaker John Boehner.

Cantor’s loss to a political novice with little money marks a huge victory for the Tea Party movement, which supported Cantor just a few years ago.

Brat had been a thorn in Cantor’s side on the campaign, casting the congressman as a Washington insider who isn’t conservative enough. His message apparently scored well with voters in the 7th District.

“There needs to be a change,” said Joe Mullins, who voted in Chesterfield County Tuesday. The engineering company employee said he has friends who tried to arrange town hall meetings with Cantor, who declined their invitations.

Tiffs between the GOP’s establishment and Tea Party factions have flared in Virginia since Tea Party favorite Ken Cuccinelli lost last year’s gubernatorial race. Cantor supporters have met with stiff resistance in trying to wrest control of the state party away from Tea party enthusiasts, including in the Cantor’s home district.

Brat teaches at Randolph-Macon College, a small liberal arts school north of Richmond. He raised just more than $200,000 for his campaign, according to the most recent campaign finance reports.

Beltway-based groups also spent heavily in the race. The American Chemistry Council, whose members include many blue chip companies, spent more than $300,000 on TV ads promoting Cantor. It’s the group’s only independent expenditure so far this election year. Political arms of the American College of Radiology, the National Rifle Association and the National Association of Realtors had five-figure independent spending to promote Cantor.

Brat offset the cash disadvantage with endorsements from conservative activists like radio host Laura Ingraham, and with help from local Tea Party activists angry at Cantor.

Much of the campaign centered on immigration, where critics on both sides have recently taken aim at Cantor.

Brat has accused the House majority leader of being a top cheerleader for “amnesty” for immigrants in the U.S. illegally. Cantor has responded forcefully by boasting in mailers of blocking Senate plans “to give illegal aliens amnesty.”

It was a change in tone for Cantor, who has repeatedly voiced support for giving citizenship to certain immigrants brought illegally to the country as children. Cantor and House GOP leaders have advocated a step-by-step approach rather than the comprehensive bill backed by the Senate. They’ve made no move to bring legislation to a vote and appear increasingly unlikely to act this year.

Cantor, a former state legislator, was elected to Congress in 2000. He became majority leader in 2011.

So, now, for the next several days, there will be wailing, crying and the gnashing of teeth in the Hallways of Power, up in DC, among the GOP Elite and the Democrats alike.

You see boys and girls, last night was the new “Shot heard Around the World”

In a blog I wrote titled ” The Failed GOP Strategy of Passive Resistance”, posted on 1/29/2013, I warned the GOP Establishment that

If these Vichy Republicans do not “man up” soon and start “‘resisting” the plans of Obama and his minions to turn the “Shining City on the Hill” into a Third World Barrio, they are going to find themselves out of a job after a Mid-Term Election in 2014,  that will make the political bloodbath of 2012 seem like a squirt gun fight.

Do not forget, GOP: You serve at OUR pleasure. Not yours.

However, they did not listen to little ol’ me.

So, Eric Cantor chose, like the rest of the so-called “GOP Moderates”, to push for Amnesty for all of those who have entered and are entering our Sovereign Nation’s Southern Borders illegally, including those involved in the current Mexican Munchkin Migration.

Who will be the next member of the GOP Establishment to lose their cushy job?

I would say that it will probably be Senator Thad Cochran, down here in Mississippi, who has been forced into a run-off with TEA Party Firebrand Chris McDaniels, who finished in a statistical tie, with the 40-year incumbent.

Just as was the case with the Virginia Primary, the GOP Establishment has opened their purses to bankroll Cochran’s re-election effort, issuing attack ads and fluff pieces, attempting to convince voters of Cochran’s “Conservative Bona Fides.”

Unfortunately for them, their efforts have not worked.

This new “Shot Heard Around the World” last night signaled a great awakening. America’s Political Pendulum is, once again, swinging to the Right.

Americans are watching in disgust as a United States President is intentionally harming our country, while he and his fellow travelers, Professional Progressive Politicians on both sides of the aisle, thumb their noses at the wishes of the overwhelming majority of American Citizens…the people who elected them to their cushy jobs in the first place: THEIR BOSSES.

Average Americans want common sense Conservative American Leadership.

LEADERS WHO WILL REPRESENT THEM…not themselves.

Leaders who will stand up to our Petulant Prevaricating President.

Americans want someone who can speak like this:

I don’t believe the people I’ve met in almost every State of this Union are ready to consign this, the last island of freedom, to the dust bin of history, along with the bones of dead civilizations of the past. Call it mysticism, if you will, but I believe God had a divine purpose in placing this land between the two great oceans to be found by those who had a special love of freedom and the courage to leave the countries of their birth. From our forefathers to our modern-day immigrants, we’ve come from every corner of the earth, from every race and every ethnic background, and we’ve become a new breed in the world. We’re Americans and we have a rendezvous with destiny. We spread across this land, building farms and towns and cities, and we did it without any federal land planning program or urban renewal.

Indeed, we gave birth to an entirely new concept in man’s relation to man. We created government as our servant, beholden to us and possessing no powers except those voluntarily granted to it by us. Now a self-anointed elite in our nation’s capital would have us believe we are incapable of guiding our own destiny. They practice government by mystery, telling us it’s too complex for our understanding. Believing this, they assume we might panic if we were to be told the truth about our problems.

Why should we become frightened? No people who have ever lived on this earth have fought harder, paid a higher price for freedom, or done more to advance the dignity of man than the living Americans the Americans living in this land today. There isn’t any problem we can’t solve if government will give us the facts. Tell us what needs to be done. Then, get out of the way and let us have at it.

That was Ronald Wilson Reagan, the greatest American President in my lifetime, a man who brought us together, instead of pitting us against each other….a man who stood up to tyranny, instead of embracing it…a man who fought for the rights of the unborn…instead of declaring them “a punishment”…A LEADER…NOT A FOLLOWER

Until the good ol’ boys in the Northeast Republicans’ Club, or Vichy Republicans, as I like to call them, realize that the majority of Americans out here in the Heartland are still Conservative “bitter clingers” who love God and country, they will be victims of their own hubris, and continue to lose elections.

And, it will be nobody’s fault but their own.

Vichy Republicans Support Mexican Munchkin Migration…Still Seek Amnesty

June 10, 2014

immigration reformThe term “Vichy” refers to the traitorous French collaborators, who worked to suppress the Freedom of their Sovereign Nation, during the period in which Nazi Germany occupied France in World War II.

I believe that the GOP Establishment is composed of “Moderates”, or wannabe Democrats, who are content to work behind enemy lines…Vichy Republicans, if you will.

They have been working within the Republican Party for the last couple of decades, slowly pushing the party’s ideology further and further to the Left of the Political Spectrum, until now, when the GOP seems to be just a slightly less radical extension of the Party of the Jackass.

The problem is, all of this jackassery is happening within the ranks of the Leadership of the Republican Party, while the base of the GOP remains solidly Conservative.

Think I’m crazy? Yesterday, I posted about the fact that Obama is facilitating the illegal Mexican Munchkin Migration, presently occurring across our Southern Borders in which tens of thousand of illegal alien minors are being transported, withput their parents, which is having a devastating impact on both our Border Patrol and Immigration Services.

Now, what would the logical stand be for the “Opposition Party” to take? Opposition to all of this Obama Administration-sponsored illegality, right?

Nope. The Vichy Republicans not only support this lawbreaking…they want to reward the lawbreakers.

Here, Mr. Burglar, take my car, too.

House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, R-Va., made that abundantly clear in an interview with a local Virginia TV station WTVR last Friday. During the interview, he claimed that he told President Obama that “we can work on the border security bill together. We can work on something like the kids.”

Additionally, Breitbart.com reports that

Helping guide a secretive effort to informally gauge support for legislative action on the issue before August are two expected names: Reps. Mario Diaz-Balart (R-FL) and Paul Ryan (R-WI).

But joining them is a young conservative lawmaker whose efforts on the issue have shocked conservative power brokers and prompted a behind-the-scenes backlash.

“Absolutely,” Rep. Mick Mulvaney (R-SC) told Breitbart News, “I have been talking about immigration with my colleagues for months. Talking about important issues is part of my job.”

Mulvaney was quick to add he isn’t “whipping” support for a bill per se – “I haven’t even seen a bill on immigration reform that I could whip even if I wanted to,” he said – and that he remains firmly opposed to the Senate “Gang of Eight” bill.

“I have absolutely no interest in taking up the Senate bill or going to conference on the Senate bill. Securing our borders is my first priority on any immigration reform, and the Senate bill falls woefully short on that point.

Furthermore, I will not support a special pathway to citizenship for those who are here illegally. The Senate bill has always been and remains a non-starter,” Mulvaney said.

Still, his support for House action on the issue this year, and his backing for a separate issue, reauthorization of the Export-Import bank, has prompted new scrutiny on Mulvaney from the right.

“He needs to be called out for this,” one prominent conservative says.

Mulvaney not only has one of the most conservative voting records in the House Republican conference, he has been a leader of a group of conservative dissidents looking to push Speaker John Boehner to the right. In 2013,

Mulvaney pointedly took a seat near the front of the House chamber and sat silently as his name was called repeatedly during the Boehner’s reelection as speaker.

His new movement on immigration isn’t his first foray into the issue. In February, he was profiled by a New York Times reporter who traveled to his South Carolina district to witness his first town hall conducted in Spanish.

But then, he said legislative action was out of the question because President Obama is an untrustworthy partner. “We are afraid that if we reach an agreement, he will take the parts he likes and he won’t take the parts that he doesn’t like,” Mulvaney told the audience in Spanish, according to the Times.

Breitbart.com also reports that

According to the Associated Press, Obama “met at the White House Monday with a group of nurses to discuss” immigration. Alvin Vitung, a nurse from California who attended the event, said Obama “told them he thought there was a 50-50 chance of House action in the next month — perhaps higher if they kept up their advocacy.”

…Meanwhile, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA), who has been sending out deceptive anti-amnesty mailers to cloud his position on the issue while his primary opponent Dave Brat has been surging in the polls before Tuesday’s primary, indicated on Friday that he would be willing to work with Obama to give amnesty to illegal immigrant children.

As Breitbart News reported, that is exactly the point the anti-Cantor and anti-amnesty We Deserve Better PAC made last week while trying to set the record straight with a 30-second spot that highlighted Cantor’s support for amnesty. The PAC “argued that Cantor and Obama’s next big deal will be to give ‘amnesty and citizenship’ to illegal immigrants.”

Chatter from Washington about amnesty legislation may be compelling illegal immigrant youth to pour into the country. As Breitbart Texas first reported, illegal immigrants are being warehoused in Texas and being sent to neighboring states like Arizona and Oklahoma.

Obama recently instructed Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson to delay the administration’s deportation review to give Congress a chance to pass amnesty legislation by August. Pro-amnesty advocates like Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) have said that Obama will act alone to ease deportations if Congress does not pass legislation this summer.

In 2010, as a result of the passage of Obamacare, by the Democrat Majority of both Houses of Congress, Americans stood up on their hind legs, formed Grass Roots TEA Party Groups, holding rallies featuring Conservatives such as Lt. Col. Allen West, Sarah Palin, and, this before-mentioned Benedict Arnold, Marco Rubio.

The result was a Mid-term Electoral Tsunami, in which Republicans regained control of the House, and made gains in the Senate. 

However, since then, the Republican Establishment has turned their back on the TEA Party, and the Conservative Base in general, showing their elitism by siding with the Democrats regarding such issues as the Debt Ceiling, Homosexual Marriage and “Immigration Reform”, i.e, AMNESTY.

The Republican Establishment had better think about which side their bread is buttered on. If they don’t, I hope they have a trade to fall back on.

The Vichy Republican Establishment has backhanded Conservatives for a long while, now.

It is time for Conservatives to stand up for ourselves and our country once again.

It is time for Payback. And, Payback is a…well…you know.

Palin Warns GOP Establishment: “Keep Gloating…No Voting”

May 8, 2014

palin-newsweekOnce the ballots were counted after Tuesday’s State Primaries around the country, it was discovered that “Republican Establishment” Candidates had scored some victories over local “TEA Party” Candidates. Immediately, the Vichy Republicans and their “Cheerleaders” began to gloat about their victories.

As Tony Lee of Breitbart.com reported…

The Republican establishment gloated after three underfunded Tea Party challengers failed to knock off incumbent Republicans in primaries on Tuesday while another establishment-backed candidate secured the GOP nomination for Senate in North Carolina.

“Next up is that fraud @MattBevin! #GOP,” tweeted Jahan Wilcox, a former aide to Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) who is now the RNC’s director of rapid response. (He later deleted it and said his thoughts were his “personal opinions.”)

Rep. Renee Ellmers (R-NC) defeated her primary challenger Frank Roche despite a series of high-profile outbursts in support of amnesty. Ellmers was heavily backed by Facebook co-founder Mark Zuckerberg’s FWD.us group.

“Folks should be talking more about Ellmers,” tweeted Becky Tallent, a senior aide to Speaker John Boehner who formerly served as one of Sen. John McCain’s top amnesty lieutenants.

Boehner (R-OH) unsurprisingly coasted to victory against challenger J.D Winteregg. In response, Ana Navarro, the Jeb Bush ally, promptly tweeted,”Congratulations to @johnboehner on decisive primary win. Rumors of his demise were greatly exagerated….who’s crying now?”

Ohio freshman Rep. David Joyce defeated Matt Lynch, who was endorsed by FreedomWorks and Ron Paul, which prompted Brian Walsh, the former NRSC director of communications who still advises the group, to tweet, “BOOM.”
In the night’s main event, Tillis avoided what would have been a costly runoff to win the GOP nomination for U.S. Senate by securing more than 40% of the vote. He will take on vulnerable incumbent Sen. Kay Hagan (D-NC) in the fall. Tillis defeated Greg Brannon — who was backed by FreedomWorks, Rand Paul, the Senate Conservatives Fund, and nearly every local Tea Party group — and Mark Harris — who received the support of former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee.

Meanwhile, Jeb Bush, Mitt Romney, the Chamber of Commerce, and American Crossroads backed Tillis for the win.
NRSC Chairman Sen. Jerry Moran (R-KS) congratulated Tillis and said he is “a strong contrast with Kay Hagan who, beyond ObamaCare and being a rubber stamp for Barack Obama, has little to show for her time in Washington.”

“Kay Hagan promised to be an independent voice for North Carolina, but instead has voted with President Obama an astounding 96 percent of the time,” Moran said. “It’s far from the only promise that Kay Hagan broke to voters in North Carolina. By November, this race will be a clear contrast between an effective candidate versus an ineffective Senator.”

Rand Paul immediately congratulated Tillis on his Facebook page and said he looks “forward to working with him in the Senate.”

“I congratulate my friend Greg Brannon on a well fought race and encourage all the candidates to unite for victory in November,” Paul said, in a statement with a notably conciliatory tone.

TEA Party Favorite, the strong Reagan Conservative, whom I call the “Arctic Fox”, Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, wrote the following on her Facebook Page…

C’mon now, guys. This gloating among establishment Republicans calls for the same reprimand we parents offer 12-year-olds who scuffle on the playground. I often remind my young daughter, especially, after her ball games, of the importance of being considerate and gracious in both victory and defeat.

Congratulations to candidates in yesterday’s small pool of state primary elections who will now move on to their respective general elections. Now, knock off the gloating. The GOP establishment must ratchet any kind of arrogance way down and get in touch with independent, constitutional conservatives who build the base of the party. They do the thankless work to put boots on the ground for your campaigns, and they show up to vote if you give us good reason to vote. Anything less and we will not secure victory for America this fall.

Surely, politicians and high paid D.C. consultants, you realize we all need to work together after these valuable competitive primaries that offer good debate and clear awareness of candidates’ positions, right? It’s extremely off-putting to witness post-primary smugness. Well-funded campaigns that rub a victory in the face of primary challengers’ supporters sure don’t endear the winning campaign to voters who are beyond tired of the selfish political games that have gotten the country into the mess we’re in. Your gloating causes apathy, if not downright disgust, among concerned citizens who want to remind you: “It’s not about you.”

You’re perpetuating an “us versus them” mentality with this gloating. That does our cause of defending our republic and all our freedoms and opportunities no good. Are we not on the same side, standing firm on all platform planks that empower the people instead of growing government? The people you’re mocking comprise the base of your own party, remember? To paraphrase the great Ronald Reagan: Rein it in and humbly learn how much we can accomplish together for America when we don’t care who gets the credit.

Bottom line: Politicos, more friends are needed leading up to the general election. Poking potential friends in the eye doesn’t earn the allies needed to win.

Piper and her schoolgirl friends would tell you as much.

Beltway politicians and Pundits live in a bubble.  They have disassociated themselves from the common people.  The two times the Beltway Elite Republicans actually seem to pay attention to the wishes of Americans in the Heartland is when we melt the Congressional Phone Lines down and threaten their well-paying jobs…and, come Election Time. 

That’s why the rise of the Tea Party movement and America’s return to Conservatism, which resulted in the political massacre known as the Midterm Elections, was such a surprise to them.  In their self-imposed isolation, they actually thought that the America people wanted them to continue their deal-making, soul-selling, business-as-usual politics.

Now, Republicans are scrambling, trying to figure out how to appease an angry electorate and keep their cushy jobs, in the face of their mishandling of the catastrophe known as Obamacare and their support in the push for Amnesty for Illegal Aliens.  

The US Chamber of Commerce is one of the key players in the Vichy Republicans’ push for Amnesty.

Hence, the Crony Capitalist-funded victorious state campaigns of the before-mentioned Republican Acolytes.

Hey…somebody’s got to “pick de cotton”.

Pundits are trying to give the GOP Establishment all the cover they can, while offering criticism in columns specifically written as to not cost the pundit their place on the Broadcast television networks’ Sunday morning shows or to cause them to be left off the invitation list for all the cool Beltway cocktail parties, and noew, specifically designed to discourage and disassemble the TEA Party Movement.

In summation, as Former Governor Palin pointed out, there is still an us and them mentality in the Beltway, among the resurgent Republican Party. 

Even with these Primary Victories, if the Republicans don’t legislate as Conservatives, and ignore the message sent to them by American voters on November 2nd, 2010, it won’t matter if the Pundits praise them or criticize them, they will be out of a job.

After all, there is much more to America than just the Beltway.  And there are a lot more American voters than there are ” Severely Conservative” Politicians and Pundits.

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.

Until He Comes,

KJ
