Corruption

The corruption in the Republican Party can no longer be ignored. I recieved a message today and a link to the video evidence from Heidi Thiess concerning the Republican Rules Committee fight that occurred during the first days of the recent RNC convention:

Calling all Conservatives: watch this UPDATE ON REPUBLICAN FLOOR FIGHT. The real story is getting out. Please help spread the word. Have you seen this video of Boehner’s SCRIPTED response to the floor vote? Unfettered, incontrovertible corruption! Please help share his video everywhere because folks still don’t understand the impact of these changes nor the corruption that the RNC and top Republican officials engaged in to shove this down our throats.

The bottom line: these rules would have crushed Reagan in ’76 and if left unchanged mean we’ll never get a conservative choice (like a Reagan) again. We must fight back!

Watch the TelePrompter that PROVES corruption:

Thanks to Heidi and to Ben Swann for following this story.

Crossposted at Texas Conservative News: Proof #RNCpowergrab Floor Vote was Scripted

Remember the Socia.List?  That menagerie of miscreants comprising the 1000 State Legislators who signed the PSN letter urging passage of Obamacare? Don’t think for a minute they’ve been eradicated. In fact, they’ve recruited quite a few more to their ranks. See, these new recruits recently signed on to be surrogates for Captain Apology under the guise of…

[Queue ominous, badly played, western diminuendo…]

“The Texas Truth Team”

Inspires confidence, doesn’t it? I guess maybe it could, if one ignored the party affiliation and the fact they are propaganda ministers for Dear Leader.

Hey. Guys. Seriously. Next time you decided to form a new band, for heaven’s sake call me for some name suggestions.

Here’s a few off the top of my tin-clad head:

Social Justice League

Reparation Station

The Projectors

Tools of the Tirade

Death Cab for Baby

Marxed-Out

The Keystone Keynesians

Foetus Non Esse

No Borders

Of course, you’re encouraged to add your own suggestions in the comments.

As an example of the dangerously misguided, wacked-out messianic complex the Dem’s have for their chosen one, I offer their own national Truth Team logo, spotted by Glenn Beck’s personal truth team, who astutely point out:

Usually a capitalized ‘He’ or ‘His’ would be reserved for 1) the first word of a sentence or 2) God so what is Obama saying…?

So, just for fun, what say we pay a visit to the Texas leader of these truth-telling vestiges of virtue, shall we?

Texas Democrat Party Chairman, Boyd Richie:

Mr. Richie recently announced his decision not to seek another term as TDP  chair in order to run for another office, or something. While making that announcement, Richie had no qualms issuing a few histrionic comments disparaging those with opposing viewpoints and encouraging his fellow lemmings to unite…

“…because a Republican political agenda that threatens to shut down government, schools and nursing homes is one that has turned its back on the people.”

Interesting wording, Mr. Richie. except for the fact that it’s hyperbole, innuendo and lies.

With all due respect sir, you’re a shameless demagogue and thus, accurately represent the rest of your party.

Leadership, indeed.

I submit that your statement does however, accurately describe the Democrat party and the Obama regime’s record.

Can you say projection? Sure you can.

It is the democrats who had control of both houses for the first two years of the Obama regime and it is with them that any blame lies for not passing a budget for the past three years. Three more “historic” firsts for those of you at home keeping score.

It was also the democrats who threatened to shut down government, withholding of Social Security checks, withholding of pay from active service troops, cutting healthcare services to veterans, cutting healthcare funds, and more. And they do so out of fear mongering.

The tools of tyrants and dictators throughout history is writ large in the democrat playbook and wielded against the people who’s rights they claim to protect, enslaving us all to exorbitant debt while the party panders ever more to their cronys, barely challenged by the sycophantic media.

Like Obama, Pelosi and Reid, these truth team surrogates must go. If for nothing but the fact they’ve turned the definition of truth on it’s head. They’ve jumped aboard yet another demagogue wagon instead of engaging in meaningful discussion about the constitutional restoration that Texas and America so desperately need.

The members of our merry band of misfits is as follows. Those with an asterisk are included on the Socia.list page. The 11 others are awarded spots on that list as well.

The Texas “Truth” Team:

TDP Chair Boyd Richie, (Good riddance)

US Congresswoman Eddie Bernice Johnson (D-Dallas),

Sen. Jose Rodriguez (D-El Paso),

Rep. Alma Allen (D-Houston), *

Rep. Roberto Alonzo (D-Dallas), *

Rep. Rafael Anchia (D-Dallas), *

How much do we borrow to buy votes fund unearned entitlements?

You might want to sit down.

Don’t bet the farm on it.

This video from 2009 tells us all we need to know about Newt’s brand of conservatism.

Video after the page break:

Here come the judge: “More freedom means less government.”

Which reminds me of an Automotivator I did a while back…

Thanks to Libertarian Buddha for the email pointing me to The Libertarian Buddhist.

Imagine that.    :)

 

Here it comes…

Obama will soon double quadruple down on his failing socialist agenda. (Failing being a very relative term in this case.)

The talking heads on the left (read: Progressive/Marxist) are busy trying to paint themselves as centrist and objective while whining that their president has abandoned them. Or something. All to get the liberal base all wee-wee’d up to clamor for more spending and taxing and speeches about spending and taxing, which is what they do so well.

Our mighty mighty Photoshopâ„¢ friend Curmudgeon, over at Political Clown Parade has outdone their-self with a creepy Obama devil/alien/socialist/loser pic in answer to answer one Peggy Noonan quip.

Smitty takes time from tending his handsome newborn son to pen a few notes on the issue.

Dan Collins over at The Conservatory posted a reply to Mzzz. Noonan as well.

And Newsbusters’ Brent Baker catches three talking points being floated around the talk shows today.

What does it mean?

Classic democrat play book. The talking heads will pretend to be surprised that Obama has “moved too far to the right” when he has done no such thing; all the while painting the only adults in the room (read: TEA Party Conservatives and Libertarians) as the ones who are out of their minds for *gasp* addressing the true problems of over-spending and a government that is growing too big too fast which, in case you haven’t noticed, is the REAL crisis.

The Democrats/Progressives/Commies and RINO’s are deathly afraid that we will take away their credit cards, as well they should be because that would decrease their ability to buy more votes with your hard earned cash. So keep on fighting, calling your congress-critters and faxing the faxes because it ain’t over ’til the fat lady sings. The problem is, they would want you to believe that you’ve gained a little ground when you’ve actually been backed into another corner.

Don’t fall for it.

To quote a good friend of mine: WOLVERINES!

UPDATE: Joy McCann also posted on this yesterday at The Conservatory. Thanks for the heads-up, LMA!

A few days ago, I posted a video of CEO Steve Wynn railing on the Obama administration for their socialist, anti-capitalist policies. One commenter expressed his disappointment that Mr. Wynn didn’t give any examples of how Obama’s policies are contributing to and causing the continued economic decline.

Lucky for us, iainswife, who blogs over at Shout First, Ask Questions Later and is a contributor to the fabulous Potluck blog points us to a great article in the American Spectator that provides many facts to back up Mr. Wynn’s conference call assessment of President Obama’s socialist policies.

As to what I described in the comment thread as “uncertainty,” my good friend The CL from The Classic Liberal helpfully pointed me to Robert Higgs, who, in 1997 wrote a paper coining the term “Regime Uncertainty” to describe how the socialist policies of the New Deal had a chilling effect on the recovery from the Great Depression. Those similar policies, now employed and expanded by Obama, are having the same predictably disastrous effect today.

Hopefully these links will get you on the path to understanding the effects of an over-expanding federal government, the  incremental destruction of property rights that go along with larger government, the intended transformation of our capitalist economic system to a socialist one and ultimately, an understanding of the loss of liberty for the whole of any nation that implements socialistic policies and programs.

“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.”

C. S. Lewis, God in the Dock, p. 292.

Our Constitution was not instituted to save us from ourselves. Our Constitution was written, mainly, to protect us from our government. It’s time we remembered that and elect people who understand it as well. The alternative is not one worth savoring.

Our president thinks he’s a hypnotist, and why wouldn’t he? He obviously put half the population under some kind of spell to convince them to vote for him. How else was he able to get all those folks to cast aside the glaringly obvious truth of his hatred for America and stated desire to change it into a communistic style of government?

Every other word he utters is a contradiction of the one before or a set-up for the lie to come after. Who in their right mind can listen to absolutely preposterous, convoluted notions like “job-killing tax cuts” and come away with the assurance that the man has our best interest at heart? Those are the words spoken by a person who knows he is doing wrong and will boldly beat you over the head with the fact that he’s doing it. He thinks he’s the guy that can sell igloos to Eskimos or the Brooklyn Bridge to a New Yorker.

He also wants US to believe that 80% of us want to pay more taxes but we aren’t buying, Mister President. A growing majority of US knows you for the charlatan you are.

Barack Hussein Obama is the epitome of everything the Democratic Party and the Progressive/Communist/Socialist elite have been striving for since Woodrow Wilson occupied the office Obama continues to disgrace. Compare Marxist ideology to the modern Democrat Party ideals and you will find similarities too numerous to ignore.

Barack Hussein Obama is not your typical tax and spend democrat either. He’s much, much worse on an exponential scale. He’s a T & S D on steroids with nefarious ulterior motives who has the cooperation of a compliant media and a plethora of crony politicians eager to give him more power.

I’ve said before, and I think it becomes more apparent every day, Barack Hussein Obama is committing treason against the USA by using American social programs against the very economic engine that made those programs possible in the first place; all in order to overwhelm the system with ever increasing demands and thereby collapsing the economy and ushering in a new type of government. This method was conceived by Richard Cloward and Frances Fox Piven and is known as the Cloward-Piven Strategy. Its stated goal is to achieve political and social change through orchestrated crisis. It is out and out economic warfare and is especially dangerous when combined with the Communist/Socialist agenda exposed by Iowa Rep. Curtis Bowers. It is an evil that strikes directly at the heart of natural law, liberty and America as envisioned by our founding fathers and must be passionately opposed wherever it is discovered.

For Liberty, ‘bot.

Beck’s Explosive Video Vindication: Socialist Explain How They Worked With Muslim Brotherhood & Islamic Extremists In The Mid East Revolutions To Unite Arab World Against USA, Britain & Israel

Isn’t that special. Guess they don’t read the Robot. Or maybe they do and don’t like what they see. Which leads to the conclusion:

FCC Hates Beautiful Women!       Save Rule 5 from FCC!

Robert M. McDowell, writing for the Wall Street Journal has more:

Tomorrow morning the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) will mark the winter solstice by taking an unprecedented step to expand government’s reach into the Internet by attempting to regulate its inner workings. In doing so, the agency will circumvent Congress and disregard a recent court ruling.

This is flat out unconstitutional. Once again, the Obama regime attempts to exert more control on free speech, internet access and beautiful girls. What is the world coming to?

The bailouts and takeovers were just the start of it all.

Obamacare’s death panels will decide who lives and dies according to some unknown standard of faceless nameless bureaucrats and pencil pushers who will have access to your credit, voting and video rental records.

We are supposed to be OK with a Ground Zero Mosque while they tell us to not celebrate Christmas.

Government has ruined the Gulf’s oil production and increased foreign access to the same waters.

The Food bill will put the FDA and the EPA in your backyard garden.

And to top it all off, after DADT is repealed, military recruitment will be decimated.

Why not just bow to our enemies and invite an attack? Oh. Yea, too late.

My friends, this lame duck congress and out of control administration are over the top with their sequestering of our rights and their undermining of our country and way of life. It’s insidious.  The little nibbles and nips we have felt over the years were but a taste teaser leading to the gluttonous feast we experience and witness now.

We, the American People, must take the unprecedented step to issue a decree or petition of No Confidence in Obama and the Congress as it stands. (Is that possible? I don’t know. Couldn’t hurt to try it.)

Obama, Congress and all federal agencies must cease and desist all activity with regard to legislation and the drafting of new regulations until the new Congress is sworn in. And next year, if the new blood doesn’t turn the tide, woe be unto them, for the new decree will be a new election as soon as humanly possible, using paper ballots and a thorough ouster of all Senators and Representatives. Every last one. Start over. Clean slate. Restore and repair and repeal the amendments to the Constitution back to 1890 when the Communists began their treachery. McCarthy was right!

What else is there to do if we are to save the republic?

I know, I started off trying to be light-hearted about the net neutrality thing, but I can’t. I even made a new header and all attempting to get in the Christmas spirit. Believe me when I say, I know who wins in the long run. He is risen and shall come again. Jesus is the reason for the season. I know.

It just breaks my heart to see our country go down without so much as a whimper with these guys at the helm and a bunch of smarmy Liberal Progressives gloating over their “victory.” Victory over what? Common sense?

Please God forgive them. They know not what they do.

Once upon a childhood, it would have never occurred to me that a few ne’er-do-wells from the counter culture of the Sixties and Seventies might come of age and into positions of power. Nor did it cross my then incubatory mind that those protesters become-leaders could, in good conscience, exercise ever more control over the people they claimed to have been protesting for. I see now they weren’t “for” anything, always “against” and now that they hold the reins of power, the new boss is sadly, worse than the old boss. What’s so puzzling is perhaps the tactic. They are still protesting. Only now it is we the people they protest against and from our very own ivory towers no less!

Rapunzel! Rapunzel! You have been corrupted by the power of the tower! Let down your golden locks so that I may grasp your train to yank you down from your smugly throne!

One struggles to describe the depths of hypocrisy and down-right evil these professed elites use against the very people who unwittingly or unwillingly fund their thievery in the name of an unachievable equality: The Equality of Result. It is an easy sale to make vs. the Equality of Opportunity granted in our Constitution because so many people love to hear that they are owed something from you or I for a long ago grievance they themselves never suffered. By using such lies they leech the life’s blood of industry, squelch the motivation to succeed, and rob the people of  self reliance.

Yes, here we are again, at a point in time which through over taxation and a long train of abuses, people in our government attempt to dis-inspire our minds, disintegrate our communities, disenfranchise our unions, misappropriate our monies, and dissect our humanity as a specimen in a lab experiment or TSA line. Our lives have become just another paper statistic. Their failings another reason touted as to why we need to be led by those who know more. Our dreams are merely stepping stones for their rise to power, and our achievements are quickly seized upon to be made theirs. We after all, knew nothing before their arrival and so can do nothing of merit without their benevolent hand.

I find it simultaneously interesting and disconcerting, at the same time. (heh)

Interesting to observe the chess play, watching and listening as sophistry passes for enlightenment, I’ve seen enlightenment and you have to look no further than the Constitution and the associated writings of a few truly wise men that lived just over a couple hundred years ago. So sad that the supposed scholars use their knowledge of the thing to destroy it rather than repair what needs fixing, which, in my opinion would be a thorough de-lousing.

Disconcerting that while they claim to be for the common man, they invariably show themselves to be liars and demagogs, favoring only the oligarchy and aristocracy that an out of control government exhibits instead of putting their faith in the tried and proven abilities and hard working character of the American people, or any truly free people for that matter.

Beware those who promise happiness as a right in the guise of hope. Happiness can never be guaranteed.

Beware those who decline to honor your sacrifice but who also demand it.

Beware those who profess fairness while denying respect. From them you will receive neither.

Reflecting on this situation, and drinking a few beers, has inspired me to take a couple of icons from that Aquarian Age and create a couple of new designs intended to poke an irony stick in the eye of those former beatniks who bought the communist/socialist/corporatist lie and walked this country and the world ever closer to Armageddon. Notice that I’m not pointing out a particular party. I’m pointing at the Progressive Movement in particular. Both parties are rife with those liberty devouring termites.

At any rate, here are the new designs for the Robo-Shirt line. By offering these for sale I am willingly committing an act of American Capitalism and I thumb my nose in the face of an anti-business government.

I also realize my timing in regards to the Christmas shopping season isn’t as, um, timely as it should be to get these printed and offered for the season. Which is to say, I hope to have them ready for Christmas but I can’t say for sure. Hey, the muse just hit me, one can’t time such a thing.

I’m in the process of selecting the manufacturer, so in the mean time, feel free to comment on and offer suggestions as to what you would like in the way of size and type. I’m thinking of offering some tees tailored to the ladies this time also. As before, the shirt will be black. I simply don’t have the funds to offer other colors at this time. Besides, these need a black shirt.

As to meaning of the designs themselves, if some further, individual explanation is required, here you go:

The “Peace thru strength” is self explanatory, or should be. It is not meant to tout the fact that our ancestors used the nuke, but to lament the fact that they felt forced to. I would have done the same, considering what I know of the circumstances, then I would have been forced to live with the consequences, as we all still do.

The “Have a nice day” is meant as a warning to those who would buy what a charlatan wishes to sell, only to find out too late the road leads to damnation. That, and I like the juxtaposition. I found it humorous and at the same time, alarming.

Hope you like them or at least find them thought provoking. ~’bot

I posted a link yesterday urging people to call their Senators to support an amendment to the new FDA expansion being crammed through the lame duck congress at the moment. Whilst I’m waxing wishful, how’s about instead of modifying that POS legislation, we urge them to scrap it completely. I think we’ve seen what the current power hungry mongrels infesting the House and Senate are capable of. I don’t think I want any more of the like, thank you very much. No.

I know. Fat chance.

HT/ ToM

On the same lame subject, this morning’s Heritage Foundation Morning Bell cites some disturbing numbers which, combined with the recent Wall Street legislation, ObamaCare, QE2, Bailouts and reckless spending by the Democraps amount to nothing more than a Cloward/Piven-Alinski-Obama Trifecta of assault on our way of life.

So just how big an expansion of government does Dingell, Pelosi, and Reid want to inflict on the American people to combat a non-existent food safety crisis? Well, the Congressional Budget Office estimates that the legislation would require 50,000 domestic and foreign inspections in 2015, compared to just 7,400 in 2009. That is a sevenfold increase in government inspections. And the government would be reaching into a lot of new places as well. The act requires that all food “facilities”—including those home-based businesses that make jam, bread, and cheese for local markets—would be required to undertake periodic hazard analyses and produce “risk-based preventive controls.”

‘bot – Personally, I really would like to see these guys sit on their hands and do nothing for the remainder of their terms.

In another take on the same subject Shrink Wrapped says: The FDA Will Kill Us All

H/T Doug Ross

Bill Zwerger, posting at The Lonely Conservative has more on the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act, otherwise known as the bend over and grab your ankles one more time please. This won’t hurt a bit. We’re just combating another manufactured crisis here. No need to worry yourself at all. POS Legislation # Umpteen Hundred of of 2010.

The Daley Gator has more: Big Brother finds newest threat to mankind

Received these pictures today from an alert reader.

1890 Grave-site in the Attica, Kansas Cemetery

Mr. Grigsby knew them all too well.

UPDATE: The CL reminds us of a post from a year and a half ago.

It’s easy to brush stuff like this off, especially with so much going on these days, but please don’t. This is serious.

Freedom really is, the single most important issue of our time.

It’s insane what’s going on in America today. Scary. Find your inner-Jefferson folks, it’s liberty or tyranny. The choice is yours.

UPDATE II: The Other McCain lists the other items on the Democrat agenda for the Lame Duck session. Anyone remember the attention they paid to us as we demanded their ear on health care reform? Yea. More of the same. “Ram it through!” is the rally cry of the Lame.
