There are a staggering number of pressing and urgent issues facing the Tea Party patriot movement. Our Republic is beset on all sides, from within as well as without. That some of the enemies within are either in sympathy with, or in direct support of, some of the enemy without should surprise no one.
If you look back, the same was true during the war in Vietnam. That many of the people who have sworn to serve us have gone over to the ‘darkside’ is not in question… many of these 1960s burnout politicians couldn’t find a living wage if they weren’t sucking at the public teat.
Obama’s policies are diametrically opposed to the growth of business or jobs… no matter his blather about a ‘big’ new jobs bill. It’s going to be the infrastructure, bridge and highway jobs programs all over again.
It’s no secret that America has fallen out of love with the Anointed One and his insanely irresponsible governance. If the election were held today, he and the entire DeMarxist cabal would be out on their tushies… and they know it.
Barack Hussein Obama is as inflexible an idealogue as ever there was. He is advancing his Marxist goals as fast as he can. He couldn’t get cap and tax through the Congress, thanks to a great goal-line stand by vastly outnumbered Republicans and a roar of outrage from the public, led by the Tea Party patriots. read more »
On December 18th 2010, Congress voted down the Dream Act. Last week, just before leaving on his multi-million dollar vacation to Martha’s Vineyard, Obama once again trampled on the rule of law and the expressed will of the American people. I wonder if he took his sixty-car caravan and the two Darth Vader buses from Canada with him.
For someone whose public position has consistently placed him in opposition to those ‘millionaires’ and ‘billionaires’, from whom he would wish to extract every last dime if he could, Barack Obama, whose every waking moment is spent trying to scheme new ways to separate the ‘evil’ rich from their money, is spending two weeks hobnobbing with some of the richest lefties on the planet. On your dime, of course.
Our young dictator thinks so much of himself that he has ordered implementation of the Dream Act by executive order. Notice that he signed it at night, on a Friday, just before he slunk out of town.
This is an illegal and unconstitutional usurpation of the authority of Congress… and the expressed will of the people of the United States of America through their elected representatives.
This president, and his totally Marxist-dominated Congress, ran roughshod over America virtually at will for two years. That they were slowed at all in their headlong rush to drive the country to insolvency was due to the steadfast resistance of the ‘new’ Republican party… the Tea Party Patriots that are rocking America’s political landscape. read more »
Not that our Harry has a penchant for fanciful tales, you understand… but poor Harry hasn’t had much to crow about recently. Not to worry, though… he has assured his Marxist cohorts that it’s all over for the Tea Party. That’s it, we shot our bolt and now we’re all going to go home and sing campfire songs, while gazing rapturously at pictures of the Anointed One.
Good for you, Harry! The Tea Party Patriots are properly chastised and we’ll be sure to disband forthwith. The problem, Mr. Reid, is that The American Patriot movement is not, nor will it ever be, a political party. The Tea Party, Harry, is Earth, Wind, Fire and Water… we are the distilled essence of the traditions of the Founders. We carry before us the banners of the two greatest documents ever written, the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States of America.
That’s why the DeMarxists are working so very hard to portray the Patriot Movement as being spent and politically irrelevant. Terror… We, my friends, are the terrorists, because that’s what we do… we scare them right to the core of their shriveled beings. We’re like their worst nightmare.
They can attack us, okay. They can tell lies about us and they can have the statist press dutifully vomit the regime’s published bull bleep points… all to naught. Let’s just say that we’re a moving target that they just can’t seem to focus on. read more »
What Governor Perry actually said was that the institution of a QE3 would be economic treason. The Republican nannies out there immediately wrung their hands and rushed to the nearest statist media outlet to soundly repudiate the newly-announced presidential candidate in their most pontifical tones.
These are the same establishment Republicans who will do anything, it seems, to derail any Conservative candidate… man or woman. It seems they care more for their own agenda than the salvation of the country. These are the RINOs that we’ve come to despise.
Governor Perry is right. At this stage of our dead-in-the-water economy, another devaluing of our dollar would have serious implications to the citizens of this country. Bernanke is wrong… he’s been wrong all along. Is he a traitor? Perhaps. He’s a hard leftist, but there’s no law against that. We want to find who’s pulling Bernanke’s strings, among others. I have a feeling that when the dominoes start to fall with this administration, the extent of the rot and corruption will astound even the most skeptical.
There is virtually no area of American life through which Obama and his regime have not marched like Attila the Hun. The shameful mismanagement and abandonment of the mission in Afghanistan could be construed as treasonous by some. Certainly, the misadministration’s embrace of radical Islam, all protestations to the contrary aside, is seen by many to be treason. read more »
The results of the Iowa straw poll are not surprising to those of us who have watched the Republican lineup with some interest. If nothing else, the outcome highlights the failure of the extreme left and the Republican establishment’s failure to destroy her… Sarah Palin is waiting in the wings, while the political winds sweep away some of the chaff.
Either one of these ladies is more than capable enough to sweep the so-called Tea-Party to victory in 2012. That’s precisely the reason that both Michele and Sarah have both been attacked viciously and repeatedly by people of low character, who mask their venom under the cloak of media journalism. They have sold their souls to the Marxists who are sworn to our destruction. They are no longer the American media… they are the statist press.
As far as the Republican establishment is concerned, there is reason for their open hostility towards both Michele and Sarah. They know that if either of these two mini power-houses reaches the presidency, their days of rolling over at the first hint of opposition and going along to get along will be finished.
This should be a huge eye opener for all. It’s an absolute measure of the leftists’ and the Republican establishment’s real fear of both of these Conservative ladies. If it came to a choice between these two, I’d be hard pressed to make a choice. read more »
We should be observing the events in the United Kingdom very closely. The web has been inundated with calls from around the Arab world for British Muslims to create more chaos and to work to overthrow the government.
Riots or no riots, there are whole areas of London that the police won’t even go into without overwhelming force. Even my editor, Dee, who is a citizen of the UK (South Wales, to be more specific) sometimes refers to London as Londonistan. I can guarantee that slang term didn’t come about because a colony of Mennonites moved in.
Britain… whose economy was destroyed by trade unionism and the rise of a social-welfare system where everyone was guaranteed an income whether they worked or not. You can’t have a socialist society without the presence of a phenomenon which we have come to recognize as political correctness. In England it reached levels which, viewed from here, appeared to be pure insanity.
Englishmen, from whom sprang the seeds from which the greatest country in the history of the world was born, are not even permitted to protect their own homes and property from the country’s politically protected criminal class. A farmer who did, meaning he took his fowling piece to the foul bird he caught burgling his home, was sentenced to five years imprisonment. Other examples of such political correctness carried out to insane lengths are common throughout old ‘Blighty’. read more »
Obama really wants your money… that’s where his idea of ‘balance’ comes from. Can’t call it what it is, taxes… no, that wouldn’t do… ugly word, taxes… doesn’t sell very well. ‘Balance’, now… well, that’s just a hop, skip and jump from ‘shared sacrifice’, that old Clinton standby.
Taxes… that’s it. That’s the whole game plan. Your money, his distribution. He likes that. He loves spending money, as a matter of fact he’s already throwing more government goody ideas out there through his statist media outlets. New and improved unemployment extensions. More ‘shovel ready’ jobs that will go only to unions supporting ObaMao and the DeMarxists.
Raising the debt limit has given Obama another huge slush fund which he will use to full advantage against us. He’ll pump millions of our kids’ money into freedom loving organizations like SEIU and ACORN (in all of its new manifestations) who in turn use, as it has been proven, highly questionable and outright illegal methods in voter registration and in funneling unqualified voters through polls. These people are his foot soldiers. They don’t worry much about legality and some of the SEIU thugs have roughed up people, usually smaller or weaker than they are. read more »
If the passage of the horrible budget compromise sellout fiasco hasn’t got your goat, nothing will. I don’t know how the ‘so called’ Republican leadership is going to be able to lead the party, having lost the respect of the very people who put them in office.
If I didn’t know better, I’d be inclined to think that the Republicans were in cahoots with the DeMarxists. Or maybe I don’t know better. They’d sure have a hard time refuting it, given the craven political cowardice that they displayed before the country and the world.
“It was the best deal we could get”. We heard this repeated almost as many times as we’ve heard the ‘Anointed One’ bloviate. (Bloviate: To speak at length, especially in an inflated or empty way). That’s our president, okay. Unfortunately, it would appear that our leadership, our Republican leadership, has been playing understudy to the Bloviator-in-Chief.
It’s an absurdity beyond measure. The Constitutional Patriots that we elected and sent to the nation’s capital to do the will of the (now) seventy per cent of the American people who do not want to see the debt increased at all have been ignored by a weak, cowardly leadership… afraid of their own shadows. read more »
I’m convinced that Washington DC is, as we have long suspected, not in the same time line as the rest of us. Some, like me, would tend to say that Washington is existing in another universe altogether.
I’ve been waiting for an adult or two to show up. With the exception of twenty four Tea-Party Patriot Representatives who didn’t fold, regardless of the pressure placed on them by our own people, I haven’t seen a lot of intestinal fortitude out there.
I guess the one thing it did accomplish was to give us, out here in the trenches, a definitive ‘no fly’ list for the upcoming elections. There may be a good explanation why most of our Republican elected representatives caved in on the worst piece of legislation since TARP but, I haven’t seen one yet. At the very least there be some splainin’ to do.
Too soon we forget how much money has been thrown at and squandered by this gang of thieves. George Bush gave up his ‘conservative principles’ to ‘save the economy’ when he signed on to his own 185 billion dollar stimulus, an amount which, in view of subsequent events, seems like child’s play by comparison.
Then we were served up TARP on the half shell… 700 billion dollars to bail out financial institutions which should have been allowed to fail. read more »
It really does sound like something out of Mao’s cultural revolution, doesn’t it? The Patriot Movement has been successful in ways that haven’t even become apparent yet. To the Marxists, our name is anathema. All you have to do is whisper “Tea-Party” around them and they go into paroxysms of vile invective, fit only for the streets of the slums they so love to perpetuate for their ‘plantation’ underclass.
Monday’s fiasco was no victory. What it was, was a classic display of Washington insider deal-making. I can tell you that the article I wrote, in which I began to explore the political necessity of replacing some or all of our party leadership, has drawn hundreds of comments. Although we haven’t had time to read them all, I assure you that we will within the next couple of days.
What you’re saying is surprising. Anger and disappointment… yes, there’s that in abundance. The country is a seething cauldron into which someone is poised to throw gunpowder. There is, however, a growing undercurrent of strength and determination.
It would be interesting to see a national census on the full numbers of the Patriot Movement, including those who agree with just about everything we stand for but do not necessarily identify themselves as tea-partiers. I’d be willing to venture to say that number could well run to a hundred million or more. read more »
