IS THE TEA PARTY’S DREAM AN ILLUSION? (Patrick J. Buchanan)

“There is no education in the second kick of a mule,” said Sen. Mitch McConnell of Kentucky.

With some such thought in mind, Speaker John Boehner strode to the floor of the House to offer a “clean” debt ceiling bill and relied on Nancy Pelosi’s Democrats to pass it. They did.

“Surrender” and “betrayal,” are among the epithets coming the Speaker’s way.

Yet Boehner was holding a losing hand. Had he added a GOP wish-list bill to the debt ceiling, Harry Reid’s Senate would have rejected it. President Obama would have denounced it as putting at risk the full faith and credit of the United States.

After House Republicans conceded on Tuesday that they would bring a debt ceiling bill to the floor for a vote without attaching policy concessions, the tea party seemed in open revolt, calling for the replacement of Speaker John Boehner (R-OH).

Amnesty: Politicians Put Their Mouth Where Their Money Is

by LAWRENCE SELLIN, PHD February 7, 2014

News Flash – Republicans and Democrats do not work for the American people.

For the most part, the US government is a racket, a service that is fraudulently offered to solve a problem that may not exist, would not be affected if it did exist, or only exists due to the actions of government itself.

American politicians exploit the racket to run a swindle, taking money or property from someone by using lies or tricks.

One could successfully argue that many of those operating within our present political environment are in violation of the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act (18 U.S.C. §§ 1961-1968) enacted into law on October 15, 1970.

In general, Republicans and Democrats con voters into giving them the power to use the voters’ own money (taxes) for the purpose of rewarding themselves and the wealthy donors, who fund their political campaigns and provide them with post-government employment.

On almost every contemporary issue there is a populist, middle-class argument to be made against elite liberalism. Yet the Republican class in charge seems ossified in its inability to make a counter-argument for the middle class.

When Obama is all done he will have taken high presidential popularity ratings, a supermajority in the Senate, and a large margin in the House and lost them all — if only the Republicans can make an adequate case that they represent the middle class, the Democrats only the very wealthy and the very dependent.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) thinks that the House GOP leadership’s renewed push this week to grant amnesty to illegal aliens would destroy the Republican Party’s chances at retaking the Senate in 2014. Cruz questioned how establishment Republicans unilaterally caving to Democrats on everything from the farm bill to the budget to the debt ceiling and more could think amnesty is a good idea at this time.

RUSH: Quick. How many of you have heard the name Bob McDonnell? Quick. If you haven\’t heard of him, he was the governor of Virginia for a few years. I have to tell you, I had no idea he was a threat to Hillary Clinton. I didn\’t even know that McDonnell was planning on running for president. But he must be doing something because the Democrats, after he\’s left office, have indicted him out there.

RUSH: I\’m gonna tell you what\’s really going on with this. And I don\’t mean to make light of charges. I mean, here\’s what\’s alleged. Bob McDonnell, the recent governor of Virginia and his wife, it is alleged, were given lavish gifts over the years, like a Rolex watch and designer clothes and $140,000 in cash. They also allegedly got free rides on jet airplanes and a joyride in a Ferrari. So these are very serious charges, unless you\’re a Democrat, and then this is standard operating procedure.

No matter how hard the Democrats wish it weren’t so, Christie is finished he won’t get the GOP nod | Coach is Right

The most important aspect of Chris Christie’s Traffic-Gate scandal is that a human life may have been lost because power hungry lowlifes played New Jersey thug politics.

This is disgusting and heartbreaking. Nevertheless, this scandal, as everything else that happens is being reported and viewed only in terms of the politics of its nature. Because of this fact Christie’s White House dream is over.

 

For the Democrats, this scandal is a serious blow. They had so hoped that Christie would be the Republicans nominee in 2016, but alas that is over now.

In a reflexive response The Atlantic’s David Graham is reassuring everyone who will listen that “rumors of Chris Christie’s demise have been greatly exaggerated.” Really? How interesting. The Atlantic is wrong and here’s why.

Many patriots these days lament that the Republican Party has “lost its way” and “gone wrong.” It has “diverged” from the fiscally responsible, small government philosophy of Republican heroes like Robert Taft whom Eisenhower’s handlers finagled out of the nomination for President in 1952.

We are told that is why today’s Republican Establishment hates Dr. Ron Paul with such a passion; that they hate him because, like Taft, he is the quintessential Republican.

gophum

Patriots who say that are mistaken, of course. The reason the Republican Establishment hates Dr. Paul is precisely that he is not a traditional, mainstream Republican, that his platform of freedom is an aberration. The Republican Party didn’t “go wrong,” didn’t “go left.”

It’s always better to light a candle than to curse the darkness, as Eleanor Roosevelt famously pointed out. But cursing the darkness instead of shining the light seems to be what we’re all doing these days.

 

Even shining a penlight into the inky darkness of political life in Washington, DC would show that we’ve been forced into the role of audience to the well-orchestrated Act that life in public office has gained over citizenry.

 

 

 

It starts by recognizing that the public office of the day is an entire, well-scripted, ongoing Act; an Act that keeps 90 percent of an unsuspecting and unwitting public at large in the dark without a match.

Apparently unsatisfied with the overwhelming capitulation of congressional Republicans, Barack Obama once again took aim at conservatives during a speech marking the end of the government shutdown.He began by issuing the obligatory pronouncement that there “are no winners here,” despite the fact his party received virtually all of its demands.The shutdown has “inflicted completely unnecessary damage on our economy,” he noted, pivoting toward once again blaming the entire fiasco on his political opponents.“

 


 

Some of the same folks who pushed for the shutdown and threatened default claim their actions were needed to get America back on the right track,” he continued, “to make sure we’re strong.”

We do not desire the government to be in our homes or in our lives and we see much of the federal government as an unneeded and unwanted intrusion into our personal lives.

Republicans have now lost three successive elections to control the Senate, and they\’ve lost the last two presidential elections. Nonetheless, they fought tooth and nail to kill President Obama\’s health care initiative. They lost that fight, but with the corporate wing of Democrats, they managed to bend it toward private interests.

Shortly after President Obama started his second term, a loose-knit coalition of conservative activists led by former Attorney General Edwin Meese III gathered in the capital to plot strategy. Their push to repeal Mr. Obama’s health care law was going nowhere, and they desperately needed a new plan.

I have always felt whomever held the Office of President of the United States deserved respect. If for nothing else, for simply holding the highest office in our country. Even with Barack Obama, I have tried to show a modicum of respect for the office. That is no longer the case and my feeling has been brought on by the actions of Obama himself.

This past week most of us have probably seen some, if not a great deal of the games played by Harry Reid and his Comrades. Name calling, hissy fits and political strategy: force the Republicans to partially shut down the government.

***

 

Not that the Republicans are any better. Both parties know the September 30 deadline date on the calendar. Instead of conducting the affairs of our nation and seriously pursuing smaller government by eliminating unconstitutional cabinets (EPA, Federal Department of Education and many others), Comrade Pelosi and her brassiere brigade insist the cupboard is bare, no place more to cut spending. And, she said it with a straight face. The cupboard is bare?

Noticeably, Obama lays the blame for this shutdown squarely at the feet of the Republicans in Congress. Does his message hold unspoken meaning and hidden messages?

Democrats and their media allies have spent the past week labeling Republicans “anarchists,” “fanatics,” “radicals,” and “terrorists” who are wholly to blame for the situation that we are told will soon lead to a government shutdown.

 

 

 

*****

 

And if all you know about this situation is what you get from the media, you might actually believe that this is a crisis created by Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and his fellow conservatives who sought to use the vote on a short-term spending bill as a means of preventing implementation of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), otherwise known as Obamacare.

I have been trying to remember when there was so much anger between the Democrats and Republicans. Or maybe I should say between liberals and conservatives? Or maybe I should say between the Tea Party and the Republican Party? Or maybe I should say those who find the President of the United States a contemptible liar who has diminished a once great superpower to an object of disrespect?

CRUZ: I will tell you the single biggest surprise in arriving to the Senate is the defeatist attitude here. I mean, we don’t even talk about how to win a fight. There’s no discussion. We talk about, “Hey, let’s get a show vote so we can go tell our constituents we’re doing something.” But I promise you, Rush, if you had to sit through one Senate lunch, you’d be in therapy for a month….”

I’ve never been someone who constantly calls for a third-party in our political system. I have long-held the opinion that a third-party would be able to get very little done, simply because the Democrats and Republicans are so entrenched in the system.

Despite the potential viability of this course of action, many on both left and right believe that a government shutdown is a guaranteed disaster for the GOP. Shutdown-phobia has been the conventional wisdom in Washington for nearly two decades. A close look at the evidence, however, reveals a not-so-shocking truth: Washington is wrong.

The national Republican Party has a serious brand problem. Too many Establishment Elephants are too often Diet Democrats – taking positions just slightly less Large Government than the Donkey Party. That is – when they’re not agreeing with them in totality.

A lengthy profile on Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) in the October issue of GQ may compound his already-contentious relationship with Sen. John McCain (R-AZ).

In the piece by Jason Zengerle, an unnamed adviser to McCain explained the Arizona senator’s aversion to Cruz.

“He fucking hates Cruz,” the adviser told Zengerle. “He’s just offended by his style.”

But Cruz made it clear that he’s no fan of McCain either with a thinly veiled shot at the 2008 GOP presidential nominee.

President Obama slammed House Republicans for “trying to mess with me” by passing a bill today to fund the government but also defund Obamacare.

 

At a Ford plant that stamps out components for trucks and vans, Mr. Obama said the budget battles in Washington are “always a contentious process.”

Poll: Republican voters have embraced libertarian valuesUnited Liberty ^ | 9/12/13 | Jason PyePosted on Thursday, September 19, 2013 12:45:28 PM by shego

The libertarian philosophy is taking the Republican Party by storm, according to a poll conducted by FreedomWorks, a DC-based grassroots service center with over 6 million members.

With Sen. Rand Paul R-KY, Rep. Justin Amash R-MI and many other liberty-minded politicians gaining influence, libertarianism has generated new interest inside the Republican Party, much to the chagrin of the GOP’s political establishment….”FreedomWorks’ poll shows that 42 percent of Republicans have a favorable view of the word ‘libertarian,’ and only 10 percent don’t know the word, compared to 27 percent who don’t know nationally,” they added.

We are less than one and a half weeks from the Showdown at the CR (Continuing Resolution) Corral, and establishment politicians, of both parties, are panicking.

 

 

 

 

 

The latest turn of the screw came last week, when opposition from 43 apparently non-establishment Republicans forced Speaker Boehner to cancel a vote on a CR because that CR would have continued to fund Obamacare.
