Ted Talks

On the heels of what was a fantastic speech, you would think Ted Cruz had just betrayed everything he believed in.

On the contrary.

Ted Cruz stood up for what he believed in.

Those of us who have supported Cruz for doing exactly that in the Senate… are left wondering what the rest of you thought would happen?

While it would have made terrific TV if Cruz had walked out and said, after releasing his speech earlier which he did, “I endorse Donald Trump for President!” and shut up for the ten minutes of applause, Ted is not about Great TV.

Trump is about great TV.

Which is why he made his unnecessary appearance at the end of Cruz’ speech.

Well… I’m not sure it was great TV. It might have been a bit more sage to ask Ted for a video, like the one Rubio provided, and then determine whether or not to run it.

Cruz stood up for the very principles the rest of us have been searching the words of Donald Trump for. Donald has yet to provide any of us the firm ideological foundation those of us who think about these things daily would like to see, feel, hear… something. Ted Has.

I will vote for Trump only because Clinton is a known entity… and Trump is not.

I will not be voting for Trump because of his well thought out admiration for Enlightenment Governing Theory and his steadfast resolve to promote the individual above a rightly, constitutionally, restricted government.

Want to argue with me? Please do. I invite it.

All this being said… the predictions from the Establishment Republican Mouthpiece Karl Rove that Ted’s career (an elected position I will remind you) is Over, are being tossed around as if Rove had the ability to fire him personally.

What you need to remember, because I know you already know this, is the Establishment RINO wing of the Republican Party HATES Cruz. They Hate Cruz more than they hate Trump. They view Trump as a buffoon, a clown, PT Barnum, a cartoon character who can be manipulated and ‘led’ to the ‘pragmatic’ point of view. They see him as a deal maker, in his own words, and nothing more. Ted on the other hand is an individual who does principled things like not endorse a guy who leveled personal attacks on him and his family when summoned to do so at the GOP Convention. Did you think the guy who filibustered for over 14 hours on the Senate Floor making his opposition clear to the Establishment Republicans that he would not bend a knee to them would do anything else.  You did?  Then you need to think more.

In the end, the Trump crew knew what Ted was going to say. They had the ability to stop it. Instead they permitted Ted the Prime Time spot, in my opinion, with the hopes of embarrassing him.

I’m not entirely sure that happened. But what I do know happened is they put him, I believe intentionally, in a box.  His decisions were limited to three options.  Refuse and look like Kasich… Endorse and be roundly criticized for compromising his values… or refuse to endorse and be roundly criticized for not supporting Trump.  In the end, I do not believe time will paint Cruz as having done anything but give a terrific speech. (Which it was. Don’t think so? Then you’re Trump blind… listen to it, better yet READ IT again. Or, find comfort in your intentional ignorance and remain the ass-hat you are.  It was a great speech.)

Cruz has laid his principles, and his bets, on the table…. brilliantly.

If Trump Wins and turns out to not be what everyone has fantasized about, because no one, not you, not me, not anyone on Earth has direct evidence of anything else… Cruz wins.

If Trump Loses and Hillary solidifies the complete Socialization of America… Cruz Wins.

If Trump Wins and turns out to be an Amazing Guardian of the Constitution as written, and rolls back the Socialist Schemes of the last 100-years… Cruz Wins, as do we all.

This is what happens when you have a firm footing in the Ideology of Personal Liberty and Freedom.

Ted Cruz has that.

The Establishment Hates him for it. (Because they are Leftists.)
Trump is mad at him for it. (Right now.)
The Democrats fear him for it. (Because they should.)

Can there be any better endorsement for one’s future in the politics of American Exceptionalism?

Of course not.

Ted Cruz was invited to the Convention to be Embarrassed.

He still showed up.

And, he delivered an Amazing Speech based on the principles that those demonizing him today would profess to be their own.

Are they?


From the “How do we Keep this Going!?” Files…

Byline Drudge:

                 “Activists from BLM, KKK and Westboro Baptist throw Urine at Each Other during RNC convention”

Seriously… how do promote more of this behavior?

Throw in some Communist Greens and a pinch of Useful Anarchists…

We would have great TV!  (It would probably have to run late at night on HBO.)

Apparently, all that has to happen is to hold a large get together of Americans promoting Freedom and Liberty of the Individual versus Mob Rule, Intolerance and Use of Force, and these Socialist/Statist Idiots will start throwing Urine on Each other.

Brilliant.

We should have these get together’s as often as possible.


Jeb’s Brother From Another Mother…

Jeb Bush is refusing to discuss the illegalities associated with Foreign donations to The Clinton Foundation and subsequent State Department Favors being Doled Out by Hillary.

Jeb will not be forced to criticize his “Brother From Another Mother.” Bill Clinton or Bill’s Wife… H.R. Clinton.

Keeping it in the Family…

Clinton-Bush

The Winning Ticket for 2016!

Are You Ready?!

Jebillary!

 


A PSA from Breitbart and Craig Shirley

This is not the first time the corrupt national GOP power structure and the Mississippi Republican Party have betrayed conservatism.

By now, the deeply questionable practices of the Thad Cochran campaign and his apparatchiks in Mississippi are known to all. Mysterious robo-calls, unaccounted for mailings, street money, all designed to not just to defeat but ruin Chris McDaniel, because he had the temerity to take on the Establishment.

The anti-conservative forces inside the GOP even engaged and paid Democratic consultants to help destroy the campaign of a fellow Republican.

Let that sentence settle in for a second.

The conservative Reaganites are consoling themselves that now the only way the Establishment can beat them is by deceit. It should be noted these conservatives have been willing to go out in public to discuss the race even though they lost. Meanwhile, as like cockroaches, the Cochran forces and the national Republicans have made themselves scarce in the bright light of day.

Not that these operatives really mind having their ethics impugned. For many in the Republican consulting classes, they wear such titles as a badge of honor. Winning at all costs and who picks up the tab at lunch is are all that matters. Principles? Are you for real?

Still, there will probably be no investigation and this won’t be the first time Mississippi has swept crime under the rug.

Remember when the national GOP proudly trumpeted a blueprint for reform? Screwtape, say hello to the National Republican Senatorial Committee. The NRSC bears special mention, as it has taken on a Lord of the Flies culture of mean little boy savagery and decadence. They stuck their noses in the Nebraska primary and got their heads handed to them.

They stuck their noses into Oregon and came up with the worst possible candidate, an alleged man stalker, pro-abortion, pro-Obamacare nominee. Oh what a tangled Wehby they weave.

And now Mississippi, where the money they legitimately raised for Cochran may have gone for all sorts of nefarious activities to destroy the Reaganite Tea Party candidate McDaniel challenging Cochran, K Street’s favorite senator.

Still, this isn’t the first time the Mississippi Republicans and the national GOP have betrayed conservatism. In 1976, Ronald Reagan was making a revolutionary challenge to Gerald Ford, America’s only unelected president. Ford had come to the presidency courtesy of the 25th Amendment because of the resignations of Spiro Agnew and Richard Nixon. He truly was an “accidental president.”

As he’d never been nominated, Ford had no more claim on the leadership of the GOP than did Bozo the Clown. (Which is what the national press often called Ford because of his star-crossed presidency and frequent personal pratfalls and jumbled syntax.)

The state party Chairman was Clarke Reed, the “Mr. Republican” of the South. Reed proclaimed himself to be a conservative but supported Nixon over Reagan in 1968, though in 1976 had promised Reagan that he would deliver all 30 of Mississippi’s delegate votes to Reagan at the convention in Kansas City.

Reed stipulated even further that Reagan could count on him if the race was competitive. How competitive?

The 1976 convention in Kansas City was the first time (and the last time) since 1952 that delegates had gathered without first knowing who their nominee would be.

But Reed was also attracted to the baubles of power and access and Ford, even an unintended president, still had 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue and Air Force One and invitations to state dinners to tempt weak-willed and easily susceptible party delegates and so called leaders. The trouble for Reagan was that Reed was a sunshine conservative, never there for the really tough fights, and Reagan only had his ideas and principles to offer.

In August in Kansas City, at a time when Reagan needed those 30 Mississippi delegates for a procedural vote that all knew was a test balloting for the nomination, Reed bailed on Reagan at the 11th hour, betraying him, giving his 30 votes to Ford. And as a direct result, it was Ford and not Reagan who won the nomination.

Reed was not a bad man, just a very weak one. To his misfortune, Clarke’s legacy in American politics will not be his hard work in building the GOP in the South, but his betrayal of Reagan for what was the modern equivalent of 30 pieces of silver.

As a point of historical fact, it is necessary given the current controversy to point out that Reed’s young aide in 1976 was Haley Barbour; though he was by accounts a nominal Reagan supporter, he chose John Connolly over Reagan in 1980.

The past has again become prologue and for the ethical Tea Party Reaganites, they have but two choices: adopt the unethical tactics of the Establishment or expand the conservative base by expanding the message.

Honor dictates the answer.


Did you Vote for It?

Did you Vote for Someone Who Did?

Then I don’t want to hear from you.

None of us want to hear from you.

Embrace the Suck.

While I must admit, I enjoy the Schadenfreude associated with watching Liberals of every stripe realize what an abortion Obama Care actually is… it’s hilarious to see the minds of those who consider themselves smarter than the rest of us trying to reconcile that we Dummies out here wandering around in our own ignorance were… Right from the very beginning…. and watching those very same Elitist’s with French Envy suffering alongside the rest of us because they and their Ilk destroyed a perfectly good Health System… I no longer want to hear from them.

It’s well past time we stop tolerating those who share no tolerance of the rest of us because they see us as… well, sub-human. I can’t find any other way to put it. How else do you describe another entity which you believe to be so profoundly stupid that it cannot, under any circumstances, be allowed to make decisions for itself because it can only be counted on making what you would consider the wrong one? That’s how The Liberal Progressive Democrat Party and 80% of the Republican Party view us.

They have always positioned themselves as the smartest people in the room, thus they viewed it as their divine right to hold the political offices and bureaucratic roles placing them in positions to tell us what to do.  They respond to our questions with “Shhh… just stay quiet and let the adults talk.”  They are genuinely outraged when any aspect of their behavior is brought out into the light and questioned… for any reason.

Maybe they’re right about one thing.  Maybe it IS time for the Adults to take the reins.

Obama Care needs to be Repealed and we need to go back to the Terrible, Horrible, Mean Spirited, Apocalyptic system we had just a few years ago where, according to the smart people, babies were dying on the doorsteps of E.R’s and Doctor’s laughed while watching Illegal Immigrants bleed out in front of them.

In other words, since none of that ridiculous crap ever happened, we need to go back to the system we had because… it worked.

Only then can we address whatever problems it might have had.  Only then.

Make no mistake, the Liberals are staring into a light at the end of the tunnel… and it’s not a way out.  The very real fear being felt by those who wish to control us is the possibility that We The People demand Obama Care be Repealed.  Because if we do, and we get it done, it sets a precedent for all the other wasteful, bloated and rotting Socialist Schemes metastasized cancers upon This Greatest Experiment.  The Terror comes from the fact we might realize that if we can dismantle what is easily the largest new bureaucracy the planet has seen since China, and the Soviets, then we can eat the other Elephants in the room one bite at a time.

The Smart Folks want us to climb on board with “fixing it” while leaving it in place and thus leaving them in charge.

I want to be in charge of my health care.  I want a Private System where performance and innovation are rewarded.  I want a Private System that rewards Doctors for their efforts.  (I want my Doctor driving a Mercedes… not a stolen bicycle.)  For That matter I want a Private System FULL of Domestically Trained Doctors… not nurses or transplants.  (Bless Nurses, but they’re not Doctors.  They could have made that choice and competed with those that did, but they did not make that choice.  That’s not my fault.)

So…

This IS the Hill upon which we must fight.

The Elitists are telling us we cannot win… which is just another reason why I don’t want to hear from them anymore.


The GOP is trying to suppress the Vote!

We should all be outraged!
It is clear, at least to Nancy Pelosi, that the GOP’s “manufactured” concern over U.S. taxpayer-funded up-armoring of Mexican Drug Cartels and the subsequent death associated with it is actually a blatant attempt to suppress the illegal alien and dead vote. Wow… after reading that last sentence it becomes clear to me as well. How could it be anything else?  Dead People and Non-U.S.Citizens beware!
I also think the attention being directed on AG Holder and his program that led to the death of over 200 Mexican Citizens and BATFE agent Brian Terry (That’s his name Mr. Carney…) is without question also a War on Women.

And, obviously the “manufactured outrage” over the BATFE operation to send guns to drug dealers using your tax dollars is just the GOP trying to embarrass the Attorney General and the President 2-years before an election.

And, the attention being given the finely crafted and expertly executed mission to hand assault weapons to Drug Cartels in Mexico, at your expense, is just a GOP “scheme” to starve minorities and push grandma over a cliff.

I wish Representative Pelosi would run for President.  She’s a smart thinker.

When it’s so clear, how can there be any questions?

Thank you Nancy for clarifying all of this for us.
