John McCain and the Swamp 1, the American People 0

John McCain and the Swamp 1, the American People 0

Well, at least you will know who to blame when your premiums, deductibles, and co-pays keep climbing to outer space faster than an Elon Musk rocket: Sen. John McCain. Early Friday morning, Sen. McCain singlehandedly extinguished the last flickering hope of repealing the monstrosity that is ObamaCare by casting the deciding vote against the final repeal proposal, the so-called “skinny repeal.” As Politico put it, McCain went from being repeal’s savior to its executioner in a matter of days. 

The words that should come to every American’s lips every time they read another story about the catastrophe of ObamaCare are these: “Thank you, John McCain.” 

I have never been a fan of term limits – limiting terms is what elections are for – but Sen. McCain may have just changed my mind. He’s virtually a one-man argument for strict term limits. 

I predicted at the beginning of this whole farce that at the end of the day we were going to be stuck with ObamaCare with all its colossal bloat and misbegotten mandates for one simple reason: too many Republican lawmakers have virtually no conservative convictions or principles. And if they do have them, they are well-hidden and the first thing thrown overboard when the New York Times starts yammering at them.

The only path back to sanity on health care is through the free market. ObamaCare needs to be repealed root and branch because it is an exercise in government-run, government-controlled health care, which is just a form of fascism. Literally. Fascism is, by definition, a system in which you are allowed to own your own business but the government tells you how to run it. We went to war in 1941 to stop that kind of foolishness from turning Europe into the dark continent.

The alternative to fascism, or socialism, or communism, or whatever you want to call it, is giving health insurers the freedom to develop any kind of insurance plans they think the American people want to buy, and giving the American people the freedom to choose the ones they want. There is no need for government to be involved in those decisions in any fashion. For our government to make these choices for us is an insult to the American people, and is a way of treating its own citizens as infants who are incapable of thinking and choosing for themselves. 

The only proper role for government in health insurance is to enforce the sanctity of the contract. A health insurance policy is a contract between the insurer and the insured. If an insurer fails to fulfill his end of the contract by providing the services promised in the contract, the insurer can and should be sued in the interests of justice, and civil government should hold them strictly accountable. But that’s it. In fact, enforcing contracts should be the only role of government anywhere in a free economy. 

If ObamaCare were to be repealed tomorrow, as it should be, and wasn’t replaced by anything, virtually overnight health insurance companies, because they want to stay in business and make money, would be competing with each other in a mad dash to offer a veritable cornucopia of health plans. You can make bank that these plans would include low-premium, high-deductible, catastrophic policies which would provide inexpensive and entirely affordable protection for ordinary Americans against the cost of major medical events. The Cruz amendment would have created this kind of market, but alas it was strangled in the cradle by Republicans and dumped in the Swamp. 

Under a free-market plan, employers could make these plans available to their employees at a fraction of the current cost of health insurance. The employers would then be able to take what they save in premiums and contribute it to health savings accounts owned by their employees, which would rapidly enable their employees to accumulate enough to satisfy the deductible and to take care of ordinary medical expenses along the way.

The competition across state lines would be fierce, as insurance companies, without the promise of gargantuan, taxpayer-funded bailouts, would compete with each other for your insurance dollar. Health insurance companies would have to step up their game to earn business, rather than counting on the heavy hand of government to drive business into their nets by ordering every citizen to buy their product. 

But thanks to John McCain, the opportunity to create that kind of marketplace is gone, perhaps for good, until our entire health care system collapses in on itself like a burning building.

Perhaps showing his true colors, before the final vote was called McCain literally walked across the aisle and engaged in a hug-fest with Chuck Schumer and Dianne Feinstein and a gaggle of Democrats. In fact, McCain told his best buddies on the left that he wanted to stick a fork in the whole repeal effort: “Let’s get this over with,” he told them, before walking theatrically to the well of the Senate and delivering a dramatic thumbs-down, a gesture worthy of any Roman emperor in the Coliseum. 

Democrat Senator Chris Coons of Delaware said, “I was trying not to jump up and down and smile.” Video showed Sen. Schumer exuberantly pumping his fist in celebration, just what we hoped to see when we gave Republicans the House, the Senate, and the Oval Office.

The choice last night for John McCain was between government and the American people. Sen. McCain chose poorly. And it is the American people who will suffer.

ALERT! ALERT! ALERT! This man was paid $3,500 to protest Donald Trump

This man was paid $3,500 to protest Donald Trump

We finally have proof that progressive front groups are giving actors money to protest presumptive GOP candidate Donald Trump. After eight years of failed Obama policies, Democratic strategists are desperate to get voters agitated enough to gamble on another four years of big-government experimentation. And if they can’t generate real passion among the electorate, make-believe anger will do just fine.

ABC News reports:

Today a man from Trump’s rally last week in Fountain Hills, Arizona has come forward to say that he was paid to protest the event. “I was given $3,500 to protest Donald Trump’s rally in Fountain Hills,” said 37-year-old Paul Horner. “I answered a Craigslist ad a little over a week ago about a group needing actors for a political event. I interviewed with them and got the part.”

Trump supporters have been claiming for weeks that the protesters are being paid for by Bernie Sanders ’ campaign, but Horner disagrees.

“As for who these people were affiliated with that interviewed me, my guess would be Hillary Clinton’s campaign,” Horner said. “The actual check I received after I was done with the job was from a group called ‘Women Are The Future’. After I was hired, they told me if anyone asked any questions about who I was with or communicated with me in any way, I should start talking about how great Bernie Sanders is.”

Here’s the ad that ran on Craigslist:

Ad

All of this, meantime, sounds like vintage Hillary to me: Attack Donald Trump, then frame Bernie Sanders.

Horner also shared an observation that is sure to crack up all the millennials in the room:

“It was mostly women in their 60’s at the interview that I went to. Plus, all the people that I communicated with had an AOL email address. No one still has an AOL email address except people that would vote for Hillary Clinton.”

This report is confirmation that desperate Democrats are manufacturing outrage and planting protesters in an attempt to instigate violence at Donald Trump rallies. Partyof Deceit Spin and Lies

FOR SO MANY REASONS! Voting Matters

Walking-Dead-600-LI

I hear the same song and dance over and over again when I ask people who they like in the upcoming mid-term elections on November 4. It is simply astonishing how manyVOTE seemingly intelligent people give me the answer, “I don’t vote” or “I only vote in the presidential elections.” It seems like too many Americans simply forgot history and/or what they learned in the American Government class they were required to take in high school. I hear many say that voting doesn’t matter anyway. When did voting become irrelevant or unnecessary in a republic?

I believe way too many American citizens have grown so complacent and comfortable here in America that we truly forgot what a great privilege it is to vote. I remember the “good ol’ days” when I was younger and conversations about politics and religion weren’t so taboo. I would hear family discussions about who was running in the elections. Sometimes those discussions would get pretty heated and my grandpa might add some Polish slang to my vocabulary! Elections were more like events that everyone in the community knew about and participated in.

Not anymore. Don’t discuss politics and religion. Somebody might just get offended. Now it is like a mortal sin to say you don’t like someone’s views. I vote for getting over this, getting the intelligent conversations started again and get to the voting booth on November 4th.

Allow me to present my simple response to the question, “Why should you vote?” First of all, go to your favorite search engine and type “what elections were decided by few votes.” You will quickly see that there are indeed some that were decided by very small margins. Voting does indeed make a difference. Go ahead and search it. Nobody is watching you be political.

Now ask yourself this simple question: If voting doesn’t matter, why does President Obama seem to have campaigning and fundraising on the top of his “to do” list these days despite everything else that is going on? Our country is being attacked by terrorists that we can’t call “terrorists” and a deadly disease that can be contained if we simply put the COMMON back in the SENSE! The President campaigns because HE KNOWS voting matters. Why can’t we see the obvious?

I often hear Rush Limbaugh talk about the low information voter, but what is more disturbing to me is the low information Christian. It seems to me that there is no shame anymore in not voting or not being informed enough to vote intelligently. I have heard people proudly say they don’t vote and as if not voting was the smarter thing to do. When I hear Christians saying this, I simply want to scream. There are candidates on the ballots that are pro-choice and others that are for homosexual marriage and too many times these issues are left unchallenged by the very population that should be the loudest. Elections are the time to get your voice heard.

Believing the lie that voting doesn’t matter means we are just giving up! Our forefathers, deceased relatives and friends, would be turning over in their graves over the few numbers of citizens that still faithfully exercise the privileges that so many shed blood for, and we simply take for granted. If you still aren’t sure if voting matters, can’t you at least agree that setting a great example for future generations is an intelligent move just in case it matters?

SOBERING QUESTION: “Is It Time for Another Revolution?”

Written by Larry Usoff on August 11, 2014

Intriguing title, huh?  We are not advocating an armed takeover of the existing government, but rather a good turnout of voters so that the “legal revolution” can take place.  We are, after all, a country of laws, even though the present administration seems to have either forgotten that, and bypasses the legal steps every chance it gets.  The public has to share equally in the blame because they elected, not once, but twice, a man and his administration that seem bound and determined to put this country in the back seats again.

If his mouth is open he must be lyingThere’s a few things that bear repeating and so they will be.  First and foremost, if the president’s lips are moving, he’s lying.  Whatever he says turns out to be the opposite of what he does and it bears out that old axiom, “actions speak louder than words”. Everywhere you look in the world there is conflict, and so what does this president do? In addition to golfing, having photo-ops(which he says he doesn’t like), fund-raising and other non-essential things, he not only cuts the defense budget drastically, he sends pink slips to the field, firing soldiers while they are fighting! What an asinine thing, what an idiotic thing, what a typically stupid thing to do…but then, starting from Day One of his administration they have been doing stupid things.

Perhaps the second-most item that bears repeating, and ties in with the military, is this…we have an all-volunteer armed force.  No one is drafted, they join because they believe in this country and what it stands for, or at least what it used to stand for. So, if a member of the military doesn’t see a future in that career, and is pretty sure that if they are wounded, it’s going to be a difficult task to have medical assistance once they are separated, and might even get fired while they are fighting…do you think they are going to join in the same type of numbers that we once had joining? Technologically, we are a super-power, but China and Russia are no slouches in this area, and they are catching up fast.  On top of that, they are educating their people, whereas the United States is dumbing-down theirs.

Imperial President ObamaWhat good is a sophisticated piece of equipment if the operator doesn’t understand how to use it to its fullest advantage?   Oh sure, we have nuclear weapons that could take out huge sections of the enemies homeland…but they have them too, and they are more than willing to use them, and we’re not.  Once the nuclear offensive is over, and it’s time to occupy the conquered land, is it going to be “them” here, or us “there”?

Non Sibi Sed Patriae.  A Latin phrase which translates to{ “Not Self, But Country”.  Where are the true patriots in America?  Where are the millions that are needed to put country first, above family, above politics, above everything, but the necessary salvation of the greatest country ever to be founded?  They’re out there, but they’re not being heard because government, and that’s both sides of the aisle, is more interested in what the people can do for them, rather than what they can do for the people.  Another thing that bears repeating is that revolution founded this country and, although that was an armed one, we have the ballot to accomplish that, if we will use it and use it honestly.   If your “elected official”, and that includes everyone from the local mayor to the guy/gal in the Oval Office, isn’t kingobamafingerconstitution-300x204doing the job he/she swore to do, get rid of them!  Country first and everything else is second!

Government is like a business, it has been said – and it’s a huge business, but like any business if you have more money going out the door than you’re taking in, that business will soon close its doors.  Is that what you want?  It seems to be what this administration wants because that’s exactly what they are doing.  Our country is over 17 trillion in debt, but we’re sending money to other countries–some of whom don’t even like us!  We also send them things that they really shouldn’t have, and wouldn’t want, but they take it because it’s free!

We are a republic, and we like that form of government, but there are other countries that are monarchies, dictatorships and anarchies, and they like their form of government. Fine, if it works for them, we don’t need to be trying to make the world over in our image.

obama-islamNovember elections are getting closer.  Make up your own mind as to what you will do with your precious vote.   Remember, when you’re casting your vote no one knows what you did–or at least that’s how it’s supposed to be.

Why the Tea Party Won


http://www.tpnn.com/2014/05/07/why-the-tea-party-won/

Gadsden-Flag-at-Rally

 Tuesday’s primaries are just another round of the Republican Party trying to figure out how we are going to be defined for the next two years going into the 2016 Presidential race. Many of the establishment would like to show certain losses as reasons why the Tea Party/Conservative wing of the Party should not be given a seat at the table. However, we in the Tea Party see it differently. We don’t have to win because, as of now, we are controlling the conversation. We are making Republicans define themselves and be accountable for their votes. 

Speaker John Boehner won in Ohio by 68.7%, which was down from his previous campaign of 81%. While a win is still a win, this much of a drop should be very concerning to the establishment and the Boehner camp considering his closest opponent only raised around $75K in comparison to the millions in the Speaker’s campaign coffers. The real interesting part of this election is now serious grumblings from his traditionally loyal supporters in the House are being voiced over whether or not they will support him for Speaker again. Either Boehner not running for Speaker or losing the vote would be considered a win for us.

In North Carolina, those in the Tea Party were hoping for a runoff between the establishment Thom Tillis and the Tea Party’s Greg Brannon. The hope was that a runoff would give us more time for more primaries, like the Chris McDaniel race in Mississippi, to show the strength of the Conservative movement. Momentum is the key to the grassroots. But let us not forget that North Carolina is truly a purple state and not one we would consider a Conservative strong State.

We need to have good candidates represent the Conservative movement, hence why not all Tea Party groups have backed Matt Bevin’s bid for Senate in Kentucky. In fact, the same group, The Tea Party Leadership Fund, who had been working against Boehner in Ohio, endorsed Mitch McConnell. We need to have candidates who have already been vetted and have the actual means to win an election without sacrificing their integrity. 

We also need to make sure in future races, we only put one Conservative vs. an establishment candidate as this is our common mistake and the main reason why we continue to have losses. Candidates in our movement have to remember that they might be able go back to their lives after a loss and, in some cases, might even be able to profit on their gained name notoriety however the movement will always have a notch in the loss column thanks to their campaign. We need to be smart, not discouraging the grassroots candidate. However, we need to make sure that we as conservatives are honest enough to put our end goal of putting a true conservative in office as a priority instead of offering numerous choices.

Remember, revolutions don’t just happen overnight. It takes strategy and planning. We are in a long distant run to save our party, not a sprint. There are 100 Senators, however, think about the power of one. One Senator who is willing to stand and fight against a bankrupting Healthcare system. One Senator who is willing to speak out to protect personal liberties. One Senator who is not afraid to point out corrupt and misleading proposed laws because of his in depth knowledge of the supreme law. The light of one honest Senator in a hall of darkness and corruption can save our country.

Truth be told, neither the establishment nor the Tea Party will ever win a majority of elections again if we don’t unite under the disasters of Obamacare – eighteen trillion dollars in debt, IRS Targeting, the Truth of Benghazi, etc.

The establishment will not survive without the passion and hard work of the grassroots or the Tea Party. At the same time, the Tea Party cannot stand on its own without the structure and fundraising of the establishment. The Democrats biggest wish is to continue this divide as they know we are weak when separated.

Fundamental Transformation: Obama Again Calls the United States a Constitutional Democracy

http://www.independentsentinel.com/fundamental-transformation-obama-again-calls-the-united-states-a-constitutional-democracy/

May 2, 2014

By

o_3

Section 4 – Republican form of government guaranteed. Each State to be protected. The United States shall guarantee to every state in this union, a republican form of government, and shall protect each of them against invasion; and on application of the legislature, or of the executive (when the legislature cannot be convened), against domestic violence. — United States Constitution Article 4, Section 4

Our country is a Constitutional Republic, not a Constitutional Democracy, however, Barack Obama continually calls it a constitutional democracy and did so again today during a press conference with Angela Merkel. Listen:

obama

He has a purpose in doing so.

The country is being fundamentally transformed from a constitutional republic into a constitutional democracy. The difference between the two is the difference between the United States as it was established and present-day Europe.

Constitutional democracies do not have the safeguards of the separation of powers and states’ rights.

Democracy is an unbridled mobocracy. It is the tyranny of the mob. The constitution limits that but in the United States, we have other safeguards that limit the power of government and the power of the mob. The safeguards are the separation of powers between the executive and legislative branches and the separation of the individual states from the federal government.

These are under serious attack by Obama and his minions.

A pure unbridled democracy is a political system in which the majority enjoys absolute power by means of democratic elections. In an unvarnished democracy, unrestrained by a constitution, the majority can vote to impose tyranny on themselves and the minority opposition. They can vote to elect those who will infringe upon our inalienable God-given rights. They are described by Thomas Jefferson as elected despots.

Zero Tolerance VoteA Republic prevents mob rule. You don’t have to wait for thousands or millions of people to make a decision because you have elected representatives who can make the decisions plus there are safeguards built into it.

Democrats like to call the United States a democracy because it enhances the very name of their party.

This is the correct definition of a constitutional democracy which was once similar to a republic:

“Constitutional democracy is a system of government in which (1) political authority–i.e., the power of government–is defined, limited, and distributed by a body of fundamental law called “the Constitution” and (2) the electorate–the general voting populace `within the political society–has effective means of (a) controlling the elected representatives in the government and (h) holding them accountable (responsible, or answerable) for their decisions and actions while in public office.”

This is how many Democrats define it now:

“A constitutional democracy is a government under law in which coalition and majority rule is balanced by minority and individual rights, and in which most rights are balanced by responsibilities – including the responsibility of each citizen to study the history of constitutional government in order to illuminate it in ways that no definition ever can … and in order, thereby, to allow it to evolve further in light of ancient wisdoms and the needs of our evolving global civilization.”

This definition gets us away from the rule of law. Once you can make decisions based on what someone thinks is a responsibility or what another person thinks conforms to an evolving civilization, you move towards anarchy.

In the second definition, we have to evolve to incorporate globalism which blurs the lines of our constitution and our sovereignty. It VOTEquickly erases states’ rights and state sovereignty. It also demeans the power of Congress and SCOTUS.

The Founders were knowledgeable about democracy and they feared a democracy as much as a monarchy. They understood that the only entity that can take away the people’s freedom is their own government, either by being too weak to protect them from external threats or by becoming too powerful and taking over every aspect of life.

They knew very well the meaning of the word “democracy”, and the history of democracies; and they were deliberately doing everything in their power to prevent the United States from becoming a democracy.

In a Republic, the sovereignty resides with the people themselves. In a Republic, one may act on his own or through his representatives when he chooses to solve a problem. The people have no obligation to the government; instead, the government is a servant of the people, and obliged to its ruler – We the People.

A Constitutional Republic has some similarities to democracy in that it uses democratic processes to elect representatives and pass new laws, etc. The critical difference lies in the fact that a Constitutional Republic has a non-evolving Constitution that limits the powers of the government. The Constitution can only be amended. It also spells out how the government is structured, creating checks on its power and balancing power between the different branches.

The goal of a Constitutional Republic is to avoid the dangerous extreme of either tyranny or mobocracy. It also emphasizes the checks and balances provided by giving certain rights to the states, rights which Barack Obama is continually usurping.

President Obama will not enforce immigration law. When Arizona attempted to protect itself from illegal immigration, the federal government sued them and stopped them in their tracks. When states try to pass voter ID laws, the federal government steps in. The federal government lost on the issue of voter ID’s at the Supreme Court so now the DOJ is suing individual states that attempt to require ID’s for voter registration. There are many other examples of President Obama usurping states’ rights.

Mr. Obama continually states that he is and he will continue to usurp the power of congress if they fail to act according to his dictates. He said it again Friday in his joint press conference with Angela Merkel. No one seems to care. Is this what so many before us sacrificed for?

Some quotes from free patriot that are worth reading:

Alexander Hamilton, Federalist Papers: We are a Republican Government, Real liberty is never found in despotism or in the extremes of democracy…it has been observed that a pure democracy if it were practicable would be the most perfect government. Experience has proved that no position is more false than this. The ancient democracies in which the people themselves deliberated never possessed one good feature of government. Their very character was tyranny; their figure deformity.

John Adams: Democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself. There never was a democracy yet that did not commit suicide.

Thomas Jefferson: A democracy is nothing more than mob rule, where 51% of the people may take away the rights of the other 49%.

James Madison: Democracies have ever been spectacles of turbulence and contention; have ever been found incompatible with personal security or the rights of property; and have in general been as short in their lives as they have been violent in their death.

John Quincy Adams: The experience of all former ages had shown that of all human governments, democracy was the most unstable, fluctuating and short-lived.

Thomas Jefferson: The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not.

Benjamin Franklin (maybe): Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch. Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote.

James Madison: Democracy was the right of the people to choose their own tyrant.

John Adams: That the desires of the majority of the people are often for injustice and inhumanity against the minority, is demonstrated by every page of the history of the world.

Thomas Jefferson: All, too, will bear in mind this sacred principle, that through the will of the majority is in all cases to prevail, that will, to be rightful, must be reasonable; that the minority possess their equal rights, which equal laws must protect, and to violate would be oppression.

John Witherspoon: Pure democracy cannot subsist long nor be carried far into the departments of state – it is very subject to caprice and the madness of popular rage.

James Madison: We may define a republic to be – a government which derives all its powers directly or indirectly from the great body of the people, and is administered by persons holding their offices during pleasure for a limited period, or during good behavior. It is essential to such a government that it be derived from the great body of the society, not from an inconsiderable proportion or a favored class of it: otherwise a handful of tyrannical nobles, exercising their oppressions by a delegation of their powers, might aspire to the rank of republicans and claim for their government the honorable title of republic.

John Marshall: Between a balanced republic and a democracy, the difference is like that between order and chaos.

Winston Churchill: The best argument against democracy is a five minute conversation with the average voter.

Sydney J Harris: Democracy is the only system that persists in asking the powers that be whether they are the powers that ought to be.

Karl Marx: Democracy is the road to socialism

Joseph Story (1779-1845) Lawyer, Supreme Court Justice & influential commentators on the U.S. Constitution: “Let the American youth never forget that they possess a noble inheritance, bought by the toils and sufferings and blood of their ancestors, and capable, if wisely improved and faithfully guarded, of transmitting to the latest posterity all the substantial blessings of life, the peaceful enjoyment of liberty, property, religion, and independence. The structure has been erected by architects of consummate skill and fidelity;

  • its foundations are solid,
  • its compartments are beautiful as well as useful,
  • its arrangements are full of wisdom and order,
  • and its defenses are impregnable from without.

It has been reared for immortality, if the work of men may justly aspire to such a title. It may nevertheless perish in an hour by the folly, or corruption, or negligence of its only keepers, the People. Republics are created by the virtue, public spirit, and intelligence of the citizens. They fall when the wise are banished from the public councils because they dare to be honest, and the profligate are rewarded because they flatter the people in order to betray them.”

May Primaries Are Consequential


primariesVOTEThis merry month of May 12 states are holding primaries. The stakes are very high and could be quite consequential. There will definitely be changes to who is elected to seats in the House and Senate. The primaries include elections for 3 open US Senate seats in Georgia, Nebraska, and West Virginia. They also include elections for 11 open US House seats. These seats include Arkansas 2nd and 4th, Georgia 1st, 10th and 11th, North Carolina 6th and 7th, Pennsylvania 6th and 13th, Texas 36th, and West Virginia 2nd. More difficult, but delicious to consider, are the GOP incumbents who have a serious challenger in their primary.

Starting on Tuesday, May 6th are primaries in Indiana, North Carolina, and Ohio. Indiana and Ohio have no open US House seats or US Senate seats. The highest profile contest is Speaker Boehner in Ohio 8th. Another contest to take note of is in Ohio 14th where incumbent David Joyce has a serious challenger, Matt Lynch, who is receiving support from FreedomWorks. North Carolina has two open US House seats and a US Senate seat, and many candidates vying for the GOP nomination for US Senate. There will most likely be a July 15th runoff for the GOP senate nomination unless one candidate receives 40% of the vote in the primary. The immigration issue may loom large in North Carolina. The incumbent, Renee Ellmers, in North Carolina 2nd, is backed by Facebook billionaire Mark Zuckerberg, and she faces a serious challenger, Frank Roche, who has a different position than her on immigration and the support of Richard Viguerie group, Conservative HQ. Thom Tillis, US Senate candidate, is supported by Jeb Bush, and candidate Dr. Greg Brannon is supported by FreedomWorks, Senator Mike Lee, and Senator Rand Paul.

On Tuesday, May 13th there are primaries in Nebraska and West Virginia. Nebraska and West Virginia both have an open Senate seat. There are no runoff primaries in these states. Nebraska GOP House incumbents all have primary challengers, but none of the challengers have big money supporters. The GOP incumbent in West Virginia’s 1st has no primary challenger. The contest getting the most attention is the Nebraska GOP Senate race between Ben Sasse and Shane Osborn.

Zero Tolerance VoteOn Tuesday, May 20th there are primaries in Arkansas, Georgia, Idaho, Kentucky, Oregon, and Pennsylvania. The most watched contest will the the Kentucky GOP primary contest between Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and Matt Bevins. Matt Bevins is supported by FreedomWorks and Madison Project. The GOP incumbent, Mike Simpson, in Idaho 2nd has a serious primary challenger, Bryan Smith. Bryan Smith is supported by Freedom Works, Madison Project, and Conservative HQ. The GOP incumbent, Bill Shuster, in Pennsylvania 9th has a serious primary challenger, Art Halvorson. Art Halvorson is supported by Madison Project.

On Tuesday, May 27th there is a runoff primary in Texas for the 4th congressional district between incumbent GOP Ralph Hall and challenger John Ratcliffe. Age may be a consideration for the voters in this district. Ralph Hall is 91 and John Ratcliffe is 48.

If you live in one of these 12 states then please do not succumb to apathy and indifference. Stop sitting on the couch watching and waiting for the latest soap-opera script that has replaced news and get to the polls to vote. Bring like-minded voters along with you. Your vote does matter. We can’t allow Facebook billionaire Mark Zuckerberg and Jeb Bush to choose the GOP nominees. Conservatives can win nominations if enough voters participate in the primaries.

 

A Call for Secession & If Necessary Civil War


The following article says what many are thinking. I am not quit there yet. I am trusting the Living God to deliver and heal the second country He formed for Himself and the Kingdom, the United States of America. Fashioned from scripture and birth in prayer, this once great nation thrived because it’s maker was, and is, God the Father, through our Lord and Savior Jesus the Christ, by the power of Hos Holy Spirit.

I understand this person’s anger, frustration and angst. Because so many agree with such thinking, the civil war we’ve been watching grow in numbers hourly. Jesus is our peace. He can heal and restore what He created. However, we also must use wisdom in all this. We have the 2014 Mid Term Elections coming up. Based on all we are experiencing, and the challenge President Obama issued today, (“Go out and win an election”), this election cycle is indeed the most important election of our history. We know that election shenanigans will be done. That means we must work harder than ever to get the Christian Conservative out, as well as all other conservatives. We cannot let anyone stay home and not vote.

So please read this perspective with the proverbial “grain of salt”‘ Then begin NOW for next Novembers Mid Term Elections.

Jerry Broussard

“Follow the law, elect good men to office, work within the system, don’t be a rock-thrower.”

Are you BLEEPING kidding me?

HD_TheUnionisDissolvedWe are slowly being subjugated, bit by bit, little by little. Our leaders in Congress have failed us, nay betrayed us, for their own personal gain. They exempt themselves from laws that they force upon the rest of us, and today that betrayal has reared its ugly hydra-head once again in a monstrosity that lays over anything done so far.

The RINOs in Congress have voted to betray the American public once again.

WHEN IS IT ENOUGH PATRIOTS?  WHAT DOES IT TAKE TO GET YOU OFF YOUR BACKSIDES AND RISE UP AGAINST TYRANNY?  WHAT DOES IT TAKE, THE MURDER OF YOUR FAMILY ON YOUR FRONT LAWN?

A storm is coming people, and it is dark and terrible; in fact, it is knocking at your doorstep as you read this. These shutdowns, and now the capitulation by Congress are an exercise, warfare exercises; the Executive Arm and the Traitors in Congress, the Tyrant and his familiars, are flexing their muscle, testing the waters. Evil is preparing an assault, and everything that has happened, every affront to the People that this regime has instituted, is but a move on the chess board.

Civil War is upon you, whether you would have it or not. The time has come to realize that words and the election process will not avail to turn the tide that is rushing toward you. The time for idleness has ended. The time for action is upon us. Yes, I am openly calling for Civil War, for the Confederacy and the Red States to secede, peacefully if allowed, by force of arms if not. The time to act was long ago, the window to act is almost closed. Our country is being bankrupted, our morals and religion destroyed by all manner of perversions and horrors, our top military generals and leaders fired, our borders left wide open, deceptive legislation designed to subvert our freedoms and our way of life are being passed with little to no resistance, and our status as superpower almost gone. This is all by design, moves on the chess board.

Through the internet, we are all able to connect with one another, but this is a frail branch upon which to sit. Should the government shut down the root DNS servers, that is the end of communication as we know it. If the cell networks are shut down, and make no mistake they will be, and fuel delivery shut off, what will you do?

I say to you now, that open rebellion is now your only hope of restoring a once great Nation. Some police and sheriffs will be with you, some will not. The military will be divided, and some will stand with the people, and some will not.

Those in the cities need to abandon them, as when hostilities break out and martial law is declared, those there will be the first to die. Do you know how to hunt, to build a home from natural materials without power tools, do you know how to shoot, fight hand to hand, set a broken bone, or find your way through the woods and forests? Have you stored water, seeds, medicines, fashioned weapons?  If not, you will also be the first to die.

This is not conspiratorial thinking, it is all right before your eyes. You have eyes, but you do not see; you have ears, but you do not hear.

Jesus said to the crowd:

“When you see a cloud rising in the west, immediately you say, ‘It’s going to rain,’ and it does. And when the south wind blows, you say, ‘It’s going to be hot,’ and it is. Hypocrites! You know how to interpret the appearance of the earth and the sky. How is it that you don’t know how to interpret the signs of the times?” – Luke 12:54-56

Civil war is upon us – what will you do? DECIDE, the time for talk is over.

PREPARE FOR BATTLE PATRIOTS – OR PREPARE TO DIE

More Proof That The Inmates Are Controlling the Asylum


If you live in California, does any of this bill make sense.

Current State law requires that in order to vote you have to be a citizen, and to be a citizen you must be able to read and write English to pass the citizenship test.

So now, the Democrat controlled California legislature wants to allow non-citizens to work at the election polls to help people with their ballots.

Well, if you have to know how to read and write English, why exactly would you need help from a non-citizen who does not speak English?

This is apparently an attempt by those who would like to continue blurring the lines between legal and illegal voters, because it is more understandable for poll workers to be alerted when someone comes to vote and cannot speak or read English enough to vote.  Additionally, this would open the door to allowing people who are not even citizens of the State of California to become poll ‘watchers’ in Local, State and Federal elections!!

Are these people nuts!?  No, they aren’t, because this action has far more sinister purposes.  Next, election … can we expect to find a group of Philadelphia ‘thugs’ (brown shirts!?) greeting us at our polling places!?

“RINO’s” Beware. We Are Watching, Taking Notes and Voting Accordingly


101213_bachmann_tax_deal_605_ap

There have been so many false narratives getting tossed around by the Democrats that it’s hard to keep up with them. For a while the narrative was that the far right wing whacko Republicans are to blame for all your problems, and that’s why the House needs to flip in 2014. Lately the narrative is that the Republicans are cowards who are afraid of Rush Limbaugh, and that’s who to blame for all your problems. Instead of trying to chase down every narrative that they throw against the wall to see what will stick, let’s look at some data.

Heritage Foundation has an entity, Heritage Action Scorecard, that measures votes to see how conservative members of congress are. Since the Republicans control the House, one might think the Heritage Action Scorecard position on the majority of the key votes would be Aye. This is not the case. Most of the key votes so far have the Heritage position to vote No. It’s not been conservatives that have been in control of the docket of key votes coming to the floor. There is an inherent problem with placing too much trust in the No votes to measure how conservative members are. Nancy Pelosi is voting No on these same floor votes. You know what someone is voting against, but you really don’t know what they are for. One key vote the Heritage position on the vote was Aye occurred back on March 20th.

Bill: H.Con.Res. 25: Establishing the budget for the United States Government for fiscal year 2014 and setting forth appropriate budgetary levels for fiscal years 2015 through 2023.

Introduced by Rep. Paul Ryan [R-WI1] on March 15, 2013

Amendment: H.Amdt. 35 (Woodall) to H.Con.Res. 25: Amendment in the nature of a substitute sought to insert the Republican Study Committee budget proposal.

Offered by Rep. Rob Woodall [R-GA7] on March 20, 2013

This was a vote to approve or reject an amendment.

Result: Failed 104-132

Now the result is a very interesting number. At the time of this vote there were three vacancies in the House, but only 236 of the 432 members voted. There were 14 Democrats who voted No, but their votes did not matter. They could have joined the 171 Domocrats on the floor who voted Present or the 15 Democrats who were not there and didn’t vote. The bill still would have failed.

The Aye votes are 94 out of the 168 Republicans who are members of the Republican Study Committee and 10 out of the 64 Republicans who aren’t members. Obviously there are those who join the Republican Study Committee to leave people the perception that they are conservative. There also those who hold TownHall meeting and interviews with the driveby print media and Sunday morning talk shows so they can be perceived as conservative. Don’t assume by perception. Verify by looking at the vote result.

    8 No votes and 2 who did not vote that may surprise you

  • Jeff Miller FL-01
  • Jason Chaffetz UT-03
  • Lynn Westmoreland GA-03
  • Ed Royce CA-39
  • Steve Southerland FL-02
  • Tim Walberg MI-07
  • John Campbell CA-45
  • Lynn Jenkins KS-2
  • Michele Bachmann MN-06
  • Virginia Foxx NC-05
    10 Aye votes by those who aren’t a member of the RSC

  • Jo Bonner AL-1
  • Dave Camp MI-4
  • Candice Miller MI-10
  • Charles Boustany Jr. LA-7
  • Lee Terry NE-2
  • John Duncan TN-2
  • John Mica FL-7
  • Tom Rooney FL-16
  • Dana Rohrabacher CA-46
  • Jim Sensenbrenner WI-5

Discovering the details reminds me of something Ronald Reagan often said.

Politics is supposed to be the second oldest profession. I have come to realize that it bears a very close resemblance to the first.

Our elected politicians are comparable to major league batters in one respect. It’s more important how well you are batting and helping your team now than what your lifetime batting average is. Let’s remind our elected that they serve us, their constituents. We don’t serve them. They are not royalty to hold the power to bequeath us with royal pardons and favors. Conservatives should hold on to the principles of freedom and opportunity instead of going for a bidding war with the Democrats on promising to give away stuff.

THANKS A LOT SANDY


The aftermath of Sandy defies description.

  • Three feet of Snow in West Virginia;
  • Several inches of sand covering everything several miles inland in New Jersey;
  • The front of a building in New York City completely blown off;
  • A wind-blown fire wiping out 80 homes;
  • Millions of people without power, safe drinking water and uncertain sewers;
  • Transportation interrupted, especially flights.

I have prayed, and I hope you have been too, for the victims of this historic storm. Such devastation boggles the mind and the cost of recovery will be staggering, especially because we’re broke as a nation.

However, Americans have always rallied behind our fellow citizens who are suffering and in need. We will respond again. Already all the forces of good and caring are at work meeting needs and bring comfort. No, I am not including the government.

I have no doubt that needs will be met, rebuilding will happen and “normal” will one day be reestablished. However, I am extremely concerned about a disaster no one is talking about, and “normal” may never be realized again has a result of that disaster. I am referring to the Presidential Election coming up next Tuesday. The storm has opened wider that opportunity for Leftist voting shenanigans.

With all the arguments over Voter Registration, Voter I.D. and Voter Fraud, this natural disaster has provided and added opportunity to make the corrupt more powerful. Consider the national debate;

  • The Left opposes Voter I.D. because they curry the favor of people who are here illegally. I.D.s exposes the fraud.
  • In Florida, over 50,000 people that are on the voting registration rolls are deceased. How many do you think will rise from the dead and vote?
  • The introduction of early voting has given the Left more time to encourage fraud by multiple votes from some people.
  • The Left has already manipulated the Military Vote into nonexistence because they know the Military votes predominately Republican.
  • California has already announced they will not be counting the mailed in ballots, as they did in 2008, because they claim it won’t make a difference in the outcome.
  • The U.N. has been invited again to “observe” our voting because the U.N. has been told that Republicans repress the vote in certain areas prohibiting poor and elderly people from voting.
  • With the power off, some areas will have to go to paper ballots opening the doors for screams of voting irregularity should the Left loose. Yes, it has been reported that the lawsuits have already been drawn up and ready for filing should Mitt Romney win. You’ve also heard how the Left has already arranged riots in strategic areas should Mitt Romney win. That will open the door for Marshall Law to be established, and the election deemed null and void.
  • Like in California, the Registrar of Voters has admitted that many citizens are registered in multiple cities and can’t do anything about that person from voting in each location.
  • There is no way to determine the number of illegal votes in the States that have not passed Voter I.D. laws.
  • Like I said, opened doors more even more voting shenanigans, especially should the election be extended because of Sandy’s destruction.

For conservatives in California elections are becoming a farce. For over 50 years the Left files lawsuits if measures don’t go their way. The courts are so corrupt and Left, that most of the time the Left wins. More and more I hear people say, “Why vote when the Democrats go to court and get the election overturned.” And here the Left is the one always screaming about voter repression. California leads the nation in voter repression because the Left always wins in court when we do not vote their way.

For my house and me, we will vote. We refuse to give up. The drums of revolutionary war are getting louder every day. Will we see a revolution in our day? I’m not sure anymore. I am not armed, and that worries me.

Hopefully God is hearing our prayers asking Him to forgive our sins and heal our land. However, our nation has reached levels of inequity that dwarfs Biblical Israel. They were rightly judged for their turn from God. America deserves the same. Is there a remnant of believers big enough for God to withhold His hand? I don’t know. I am praying He heals instead of punishes. What are you praying for?
