File Photo – John Boehner, Former Republican Speaker of the House

Here’s a little quote from John Boehner, Former Republican Speaker of the House, associated with an article where he states the Republicans will Never repeal Obamacare.

“What’s making everything even worse today is because we have so much news, people get to choose where they get their news,” Boehner said. “It used to be we had three big TV networks, five big newspapers, and five big radio stations and whatever they said was the news. Everybody else followed what they do.” – John Boehner 072517

There you have it, Idiots. You’re all too stupid to know what’s real and what isn’t and the ‘just recently former Republican Speaker of the House’ is lamenting your access to unfiltered “news”.  You, your opinions, your radio hosts and your little dog too, are all dummies.  You want to know what an Elitist A-hole is?  Well, they drink scotch all day, look like George Hamilton on a bender and sound like the above quote spoken in a slow perpetual slur.

If you need a reminder…

The Enemy is Within.

Trumps first War will be fought inside his own party.

Lenin was Big on Allowing Votes…

So long as they went his way.

He also advocated doing exactly what you intended to do prior to asking permission… if that permission was not granted.  The Obama Administration has demonstrated this with Obama Care, Private Schools for Minority kids, EPA regs, etc. etc.

So now the RINO Republican Establishment has also decided to take their ball and go home.

Why?  Because we don’t like them.

When John Boehner announced he would resign from Congress at the end of October there were cheers throughout the land by those who believe in the Constitution as it is written and the rule of law for which it is the foundation.

But the ‘election’ of a new speaker was to be gamed.

The Establishment wanted to replace Boehner with yet another controllable Republican. It was thought that shuffling the deck chairs would fool the American Public into thinking they were the beneficiaries of change.

We the People didn’t fall for it.

The few genuine Republicans we have been able to send to DC made our feelings known by not supporting this RINO rehash.

So what is the result?

Boehner has decided to call off the election for the Speakership.

Why?

Because he can’t control the outcome.

So he is electing to stick around for a while until he and his cronies can get the result they want.

I think there are some of the Establishment RINO types that truly don’t understand why we despise them.

The only thing They should be wondering about is why wouldn’t we?


The Crying Game

It was reported earlier today that Nancy Pelosi was “near tears” during Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech this morning.

I know, I know… you could never tell be looking at her. So we’ll have to take her word for it.

Apparently Mrs. Pelosi was so deeply insulted by Netanyahu’s speaking out loud of the fear Israeli’s feel regarding Iran obtaining a Nuclear Weapon that she nearly broke into tears. (As a note, her face would literally have to break for there to be tears coming from it.)

Mrs. Pelosi stated that she was offended by Bibi’s “condescension” as it pertained to what she determined was his belief American Leftists didn’t comprehend the danger posed to Israel by Those Who Must Not be Named should they acquire even a single Nuclear Weapon.

Apparently lost upon Mrs. Pelosi is President Obama’s current policy of allowing Iran to develop Nuclear Weapons. Also missing her completely is the Administrations desire to talk about the dangers of such weapons while Iran’s development of them continues unabated.

There you have it…

How dare the Leader of the country who is surrounded by those whose National Charters demand its inhabitants be ‘marched into the sea’… or better yet, be ‘completely annihilated’… voice concern over the Chamberlainesque foreign policy being practiced by President Obama designed to kick the atomic can down the road so someone else can be blamed for Nuclear War in the Middle East. (We’ve already seen how effective this approach has been with North Korea.)

Meanwhile in the House…

John Boehner actually breaks into tears trying to convince anyone who still believes a word he says that he really wanted to de-fund the Illegal Amnesty program being operated out of DHS.  (This guy has to go… seriously… he’s got to be ousted.)

Now I’m going to cry over a bottle of Scotch.


Who Owns You?

You?

Apparently not.  If you have been watching any part of the hysterics associated with the Fiscal Cliff and the subsequent “deal” struck, everyone owns you…  particularly those in government.  If you’ve been able to remain sober, read on… pardon me if I slur my typing.

Let’s begin with the basics.

There has been much confusion as of late in regard to what a “principle” is.

We supposedly seek “principled men” to occupy political offices, but then we chastise those who demonstrate those qualities.

We demonize those few who stand up for the principles we think we subscribe to… so let’s figure this out.

Let’s start with the definition of the word:

prin·ci·ple
 [ prínssəp’l ]
  1. basic assumption: an important underlying law or assumption required in a system of thought
  2. ethical standard: a standard of moral or ethical decision-making

OK… so you should ask yourself why is it so important for President Obama to get the Republicans in Congress to concede on raising taxes even if it’s only for certain “other” people… (for the moment.)

The Principle in question; Do you own your money and by extension yourself?

Capitalism says; “Yes, you own your money and because of that you own yourself.”

Socialism says; “No, you do not own your money… and because of that everyone other than you owns you, if they believe it benefits them.”  And who ever they are always think it benefits them.

Once you concede the principle that the Government owns the money, and you don’t, then everything is good for the continued march to Socialism.  This is why tax increases are so important to the Left even though they are effectively meaningless in regard to reducing the deficit, let alone the debt.  It reinforces the Primary Socialist Principle that Government owns the money and thus by extension owns you.  When they say “Is it unreasonable to ask the rich to pay a little more?” what they are actually saying is “Is it unreasonable to force someone to pay more?”  They are hoping you keep saying “No, not at all… seems fair.”

In other words, the Democrat/Socialists (and a number of Soft Socialist Republicans) need you to think it is OK to take more money from “other” people.  They need you to believe that we should take more money from whomever they choose, right now “the wealthy”, in order to reduce the deficit… or whatever cause du jour.  (Note… they will not mention “The Debt” which is truly what will destroy the U.S. soon and suddenly.)  They need you to concede that they have the power not to cut out-of-control spending but rather to take your, their, somebody’s money… and then give it to whomever they see fit, because it “belongs to all of us”.  (It’s worth noting they often see fit to give your money to donors running unmarketable products produced by solar energy companies which quickly go out business.)

This is a very simple Principle to understand.

Either the money you possess is yours or it is not.  Either you allow government to use some of it, or they allow you to use some of it.

So which is it?

There has been some discussion regarding certain Republicans who voted for this “deal” avoiding the Fiscal Cliff.  (I will remind everyone, since language seems to be so important, that this deal does nothing to avoid any fiscal cliff.  The United States is still speeding unencumbered towards its fiscal demise.)  I would offer that holding Republicans accountable during this charade is exactly what needs to be done.  It’s time we start talking about our representatives by NAME.  Far too many of us assume it’s someone else’s elected official who voted for this or that and never their own… it’s time to change that.  It is also assumed that certain politicians who possess a brand image that suggests “Fiscal Conservancy” that they could not/or would not approve of such a ridiculous deal.  These are particularly the representatives that need to be challenged as to what Principled Position they operate under.  (Like the Hurricane Sandy bill offered 1/2/13 which was full of crappy earmarks and pet projects… we should be outing the authors of this wanton spending for some good old-fashioned hazing if not outright public condemnation.)

What happens to most of our politicians once they reach DC is they abandon all of their principled rhetoric in favor of pragmatism.

This is another reason the Democrat/Leftists in our government see it as crucial to get the Republicans to concede that government owns the money… not you.  The Socialists that occupy our government are terrified of those certain individuals that will not opt to be “pragmatic” but instead stand on principle.  The Leftists cannot allow anyone to fill a seat in the house, senate and certainly not the presidency who cannot be bought under the paradigm of pragmatism.

Those genuinely standing for the first, simplest and most fundamental principle of Individual Liberty and Freedom must be destroyed…  not just destroyed politically but also in the minds of the common American voter… lest the Socialists lose their power.

Those who will fight to possible electoral defeat must be criticized, ridiculed and ostracized by not just the Leftists in the Democrat Party but also those Leftists in the Republican Party.  The Media is always ready and willing to help in this effort… lest they lose their power.

You must understand this.  If you are Free then you must constantly remind those occupying government that you are allowing them to use some of your money, not the other way around.  Otherwise, they will be coming for your money… or in their mind… their money that they have lent you.  And they will use Force to get it… that’s what taxation is.  Which is why you go to jail if you don’t pay up.

You must also understand that we should never be excited for politicians to “get along” and “get something done”… There is a reason they call each other the “opposition” and it’s a GOOD reason.  You should always be very afraid when they “come together” for your supposed benefit.  Because it never is.

So don’t be afraid to put Boehner, Ryan and the rest of them on notice.  And if they don’t listen start sending your campaign donations directly to primary candidates opposing them.  The future of our country depends on it.

Cheers…

Will Boehner Retaliate?

Now that John Boehner has narrowly kept his Speakership, will he and his minions retaliate against those who were representing the people of their districts and voted against him?

Because that’s what he would be doing…

He would be retaliating against Us.

If this happens, does he think We will suddenly fall in behind him?

I would suggest that unlikely.

His best course of action may be to take this as a wake-up call and fly right. It’s well past time for more Constitutional Loyalty and less Bipartisanshitt.

But experience has shown us The Establishment Republicans will do the exact opposite of swinging back towards the Constitution…

We will see.

Update:  No need to wait long.  Boehner has now made it clear that he has no intention of listening to us.

Republicans Begin Laying Ground Work to Walk Away From Obamacare Opposition

By: Erick Erickson (Diary) | January 16th, 2014 at 04:30 AM | 98

Conservative and Republican affiliated groups have started the 2014 assault against Democrats who support Obamacare. At the very same time, it is increasingly clear Republicans are laying the groundwork to abandon their opposition to Obamacare.

The Business Roundtable, which has a great relationship with Republican Leaders, is now listing Obamacare as an entitlement worth preserving.

Douglas Holtz-Eakin, a former economic advisor to John McCain and who opposed passage of Obamacare, has started a think tank premised on keeping, but fixing, Obamacare. Holtz-Eakin has the ear of Republican leaders. In 2009, Mitch McConnell appointed him to the Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission.

The Chamber of Commerce is declaring it will work to fix, not repeal, Obamacare. In fact, just last week the head of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce said, “The administration is obviously committed to keeping the law in place, so the chamber has been working pragmatically to fix those parts of Obamacare that can be fixed.”

Concurrent to this, the Chamber of Commerce has begun funding candidates to beat conservatives in Republican primaries.

The Republican Main Street Partnership, headed by former Congressman LaTourette — who is a friend of Speaker John Boehner — is working with the Chamber and party leaders to target conservatives the party leadership finds troublesome. LaTourette has been parroting talking points from the National Republican Senatorial Committee about the Senate Conservatives Fund, Club for Growth, and others.

Ben Sasse, the conservative candidate in Nebraska on the most recent cover of National Review and who has the backing of the Senate Conservatives Fund, RedState, and others, suddenly finds Mitch McConnell and the NRSC holding fundraisers for his opponent. Sasse, it should be noted, is widely considered a brainiac opponent of Obamacare and healthcare policy expert.

And just yesterday, the National Republican Congressional Committee blackballed Jamestown Associates from helping elect Republicans. The NRCC is joining the NRSC in attacking Jamestown. Why? Because Jamestown Associates has been working with conservative candidates the House and Senate GOP leadership opposes.

The lobbying groups who have open access to Republican leaders are abandoning repeal. The wonks the GOP leaders listen to are abandoning repeal. The outside groups the GOP leaders work with have begun attacking conservative candidates. The outside groups who help conservatives are being shut out by the party.

They are laying the groundwork to bail on fighting Obamacare. We’ve seen this coming for two years. They have fundraised again and again on opposing Obamacare. They have had multiple symbolic votes against Obamacare, but each time a meaningful vote has come up, they punt.

Now they are attacking the outside conservative groups who have held them accountable for their failure to act. Now they are targeting conservatives who will fight for full repeal.

Unless you will commit to beating Mitch McConnell, even if you must hold your nose to do it, this will not change. The Republican Establishment is slowly building the foundation for giving up the fight on Obamacare. It will take collecting scalps at the ballot box for them to turn back toward the right path of repeal.

Here we go folks.  The only place left to send your money is TEA Party Patriots Fund.  And no, I’m not affiliated in any way… except for agreeing with them.  – Mike


Hey Boehner… Are you Listening?

The Great Dr. Sowell is speaking.

While many of us have been complaining about this for years, leave it to Thomas Sowell to state it Simply, Powerfully and Directly.

State your case so EVERYBODY can understand it.

John, The facts are on your side… if you’d just let people understand them.  Unless, of course, you really don’t intend to win this.
