A Gift of Clarity.

Just when I get back from my lengthy, unbelievably expensive, vacation in Hawaii with my daughters in tow… while leaving my wife there to run up the bill… I’m presented with a Gift.

No, the gift is not that my wife stayed 4800 miles away from me.

Rather, It’s a study of the different types of Republicans. It is an illustration of the division within the Republican Party. It is a bit of clarity offered up as a feud between Representative Peter King (RINO-NY) and Senator Rand Paul (R-KY).

Rep. King went to the camera’s to vehemently declare that Rand Paul needed to be exiled, excommunicated, condemned, involuntarily contorted, run out of Dodge and everything else short of direct execution.  (I’m sure that was on his mind but he’s been a politician long enough to know not to mention it just like his support of the Soviet Supported Irish Republican Army.)  Apparently Peter thinks the idea of the NSA Domestic Spying program is brilliant and shouldn’t just be left alone and ignored, it should be celebrated and promoted.  It is Senator Paul’s opposing viewpoint that has a distraught Representative King foaming at the mouth.  Rand Paul’s position that collection of American Citizens Data by Computers, Humans who run the Computers or anyone else is Unconstitutional and a direct invasion of an individual’s right to privacy and freedom from illegal search… and is willing to do something about it… is very, very irritating to Representative King.  So much so that he went on a tirade.  The Representative unequivocally denied there had been ANY abuses of the NSA’s power to spy on American’s… (except when there is… when King was confronted on this during the interview his hemming and hawing was in need of a laugh track.)

All kidding aside, if there was ever a crystal clear contrast between the two primary groups coalescing within the Republican Party this is it.

You have the Pete Kings, John McCains, Olympia Snows, Lindsey Grahams et al on one side.

You have the Rand Pauls, Ted Cruzezezez, Trey Gowdeys, Mike Lees et al on the other.

One group gets along with the Socialist Progressive Liberals in Government and sells themselves as the great compromisers.  (Because that’s how politics works…)

The Other believes they have been sent to government by their constituents and the American People to protect their Individual Freedom and Liberty.  Which includes their privacy rights.  Their right to own functional firearms without infringement or registration.  Etc.  (Because that’s how we remain Free… from those who wish to control us in the name of the State.  They understand there will always be an element of danger which must be accepted in order to be Free.)

One group shows little difference between themselves and those they supposedly oppose.

The Other is hated by those they oppose as well as those who share the Republican nameplate.

Please watch the video link above.  Then ask yourself where you fall.  Clarity is truly a gift.

Found a new Gin by the way… Sage.


The Establishment had Their Chance

In fact, The Establishment wing of the Republican Party has had 60 years of chances… and they are responsible for where we are as a Country.

I just listened to an analysis of what occurred over the Government Shutdown debate and the Debt Ceiling Debacle. The conclusion of the commentator was that “the old guard” of the Republican Party is putting down the rebellion of the youngsters newly elected to office. He went on to say that the “old guard” agrees with the newly elected representatives but they have worked hard to set up their seniority and simply don’t agree with the tactics the new guard is employing.

Well… The old guard’s tactics have landed us with a Bankrupted Entitlement system, an uncontrollable Spending Habit and a Government Bureaucracy which is unanswerable to the electorate.

There is NO objective assessment of the actions taken over the last 60 years by the Establishment Republicans that could lead one to believe they AGREE with the new guard in any way. In fact, the only conclusion a person could come to is that the Establishment AGREES with the Leftists in the opposition party… because they are rewarded by that party for doing so, and then by the folks at home because they are not paying attention.

We are here precisely because of the Old Guard of the Republican Party. Period.

Socialist ideas never win favor when understood. This is why the Old Guard of the Republican Party is so important to the Democrats. They need them in order to advance their agenda.

Folks, we are in deep. Very, very deep.

The Karl Rove’s, Dana Perino’s, John McCain’s, Mitch McConnell’s, Peter Kings and the rest of the Establishment Club are to blame.

And subsequently, WE are to blame for our inattentiveness. We are to blame for sending them back to office year after year. WE are to blame for not learning what Freedom and Liberty of the Individual means as intended by the Creators of this country. WE are to blame for not understanding Natural Law.

All of our ignorance has allowed the Establishment Republicans to come to power and aid the Liberal Progressives reshape this country into a demonstrably horrible European Social Democracy. Our ignorance has allowed our supposed representative to ignore the Constitution and the limits specifically written within it to protect us from them.

I’m finished pointing the finger at the Leftists.  While needing to be defeated, they do not hide behind Enlightenment Ideology.  They are perfectly happy to embrace governing theory born out of a decaying feudal system and frightened aristocracy.  They will always embrace the Elitist worldview which relegates you to a permanent class of servile know nothings.  In their minds you’re too stupid anyway so why waste time explaining themselves to you?  You might learn something and become far less useful.

However the Establishment Republicans, the RINO’s or Republicans in Name Only, do hide behind a philosophy which most of us believe in and I live by.

Yet, We continue to stand by and do nothing.

I have two suggestions:

1. Start drinking.
2. Start paying attention and learning everything you can about everything I just typed then call these insidious clowns to the carpet.

If you think I’m wrong… prove it.

I’ll wait right here.


The Benghazi Lunch

Two days ago President Obama and Mrs. Bill Clinton met to have a private lunch.

The Media would like you to believe it is regarding her accension to the White House, but it seems clear to me that it is about the Fallout headed their way on Benghazi.
And, considering all communications are being monitored by No Such Agency, the only option for a frank, unedited, meeting is face to face on the White House grounds.

Let’s take a look at this…

The Administration has kept the additional victims of the Benghazi Terror attack sequestered for about as long as they are able.

Leaks are forming around the edges of their efforts.

They have also be unable to deflect, distract or refocus us from the question of why we left our men to die… when we had 8+ hours to send in help… which was available.

They have been unable to claim it was just a video which spurred an incredibly well organized effort to murder our Ambassador by a “rag tag group of men wandering around the streets at night”.

And they have been reduced to screeching at the top of their lungs “What difference at this point does it make?”

I suspect it is about to make a big difference….

Hillary has set her tired eyes on the Presidency.  While it makes her angry to be compared to Huma, she knows that will pass.  What will not pass is an institutionalized approach to foreign affairs which puts all of our people abroad in danger.  She knows a culture she subscribed to and directly promoted which resulted in the Death of an Ambassador and several brave men, in addition to many people injured is one which will haunt her… but she wants it both ways.  While not having it ascribed to her, she still thinks it’s the right way for the United States to conduct itself.

If I were currently enrolled in foreign service I would be scared sh*tless.  It’s one thing knowing you’re hanging it out there… but it’s very black indeed to know you’re hanging it out there and nobody cares.  That work takes a special type of person, which the vast majority of our folks are not, and no one should expect them to be.

So here we go.

Campaign Season is starting early this cycle due to an impotent President who is losing control of his party.

The only people standing in the way of the Republicans I support, are the Republicans I do not support.

Primaries, Primaries, Primaries…  Wheat from the Chaff.

Let’s get this ball rolling.
