Jerry Brown… Such A Clown, That Jerry Brown.

August 28, 2011

Another week of long days and longer nights. That’s okay by me, beats the hell out of not working. Makes it a little hard to write, though. First and foremost, our wishes and prayers go out to the folks on the east coast who find themselves in the path of Hurricane Irene. For heaven’s sake, if you’re in a position to get out, leave. I was in two typhoons when in the Pacific and south-east Asia with the Marines. I know that sinking feeling of realizing that you’re in the path of one of these monsters.

I wrote that last night just before I got called out again. The nation’s attention is rightly focused on the developing situation around Hurricane Irene. Maybe not with the punch the first worst-case scenarios forecast along with various exotic computer models, but still plenty dangerous and with the potential to cause immense damage.

Meanwhile, out here on the left armpit of the nation, it’s tough to say what came first, the chicken or the egg. Is Barack Hussein Obama modeling his brilliant economic strategy on our equally brilliant Jerry Brown, or is it the other way around? Sure looks to me as though they went to the same school of economics. Jerry Brown heads a state with an out-of-control bureaucracy with a radicalized legislature owned lock, stock and barrel by the environmentalists and the unions.

With an unfunded liability of over forty billion dollars, California has one of the country’s highest unemployment rates and one of the least business-friendly environments in America. Jobs, skilled people and businesses are fleeing the state every day. Jerry Brown’s answer… fortify union contracts, increase fees and scheme every way possible to find a way to tax California citizens, some of the most heavily taxed in the nation as it is.

Ol’ Moonbeam couldn’t get the expected sell-out support from any California legislators. He’s a bit miffed at that… so he has to go about loading generations of inconceivably bad management and governance on our shoulders by as much stealth, lying and prevarication as he can.

He and Obama… the ideologue and old-style Marxist. The only differences I see is that Mr Hussein Obama’s unfunded liability is about forty or more trillion dollars. He’s equally good at destroying jobs and commerce. Maybe better. His long-term goals for America are far more sinister than anything Jerry could come up with. But it matters little to people who are out of work because of the policies of these two and the respective governments they ‘lead’… um, bad choice of word. You get what I mean.

People in California are finally coming out of their weed-driven stupor long enough to see the tyranny present in our state. It’s certainly no sea-change. Not yet anyway, but people are beginning to pay a whole lot more attention, largely due to the really vibrant and activist California Patriot movement… and yes, they are Tea Party members.

Let’s turn the heat and the spotlight on these California legislators… these ‘public servants’ whose arrogance towards the people of California is beyond belief.

Hey Hey! Ho Ho! The EPA Has Got To Go!

August 21, 2011

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.

The same thing very nearly happened to his Dream Act. Obama, never one to let a little thing like legality bother him, is going farther and farther into illegality to advance his aims. What he has failed to get through the legislative process he is accomplishing through the Environmental Protection Agency, and other rogue and unaccountable bodies.

The EPA is destroying lives and livelihoods wholesale, without a single thought as to the havoc they leave in their wake. It is a fully rogue agency and it must go.

One of our prime goals has got to be to first stop, and then pull the teeth from or dismantle, as many of these often redundant entities as we possibly can.

Outrage! Obama’s Latest Perfidy.

August 20, 2011

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.

Barack Hussein Obama needs these alien votes. Let’s be quite clear about this. Maobama cannot win re-election in 2012 on the merits of his performance or his policies, every single one of which has been, and is, an absolute disaster. He and his DeMarxists need that infusion of illegal voters.

The Patriot Movement, which the statist press and the DeMarxist elites (and not a few Repubic RINO types) have so casually dismissed as a temporary phenomenon, is in fact kicking their butts all over the country. We haven’t ‘faded’ away, as so many wishfully hopeful establishment pundits have predicted for over two years. And we haven’t compromised our principles, unlike so many of those in our supposed leadership.

Illegals are just that… here illegally. They are, by definition, felons. My family on both sides were legal immigrants to this country. They followed the rule of law to earn their citizenship.

What Hussein and his Politburo are doing is a direct insult to anyone who has ever gained that most precious of gifts… American citizenship. These illegals have no rights here… none whatsoever.

The time has come to drive these Marxi-Socialists from our body politic once and for all.

Harry Reid – Fertile Imagination.

August 19, 2011

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.

The problem is that we don’t have a head or a tail they can chop off. We have no beginning and no ending… we are the American people. And you are experiencing the opening moves of the new American revolution… a revolution which is taking place as we speak. Americans of all ages are rising up and coming forth to be counted.

Go ahead, Harry Reid… by all means convince yourself of our demise. In the meantime, the millions and millions of us out here who believe in American exceptionalism will just keep organizing your retirement. You and every one of your Marxist cabal.

Treason? Perry Says It, We’ve All Thought It.

August 17, 2011

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.

The refusal of the Obama administration to defend and maintain our country’s sovereignty and the sanctity of our borders could be regarded as treason. Barack Hussein’s plans to gut our military (already underway) in a very dangerous world could also be construed as treason by those of us who realize just how stupidly perilous that is, and how badly it affects our ability to project strength throughout trouble spots in the world as they impact our security interests.

I won’t even go into the pathetic handling of the middle east or the horrible treatment of one of our few true allies, Israel. That ‘treason’ has probably cost the Anointed One the American Jewish vote. It’s about time… I was beginning to wonder if America’s Jewry was lost forever to liberalism. It appears that there’s hope after all.

So yeah, Karl Rove, we do think there’s treason afoot. And what’s more, we intend to deal with a bunch of it in 2012.
We’ll see you at the polls.

The Best Man For The Job Is A Woman.

August 14, 2011

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.

It’s wild to watch the establishment’s support of Mitt Romney, who is purported to be the national GOP leader at this point. I’m not so sure. Romney still has some really serious flaws. Specifically, he still has not dealt with the anchor around his neck in the form of the Romneycare issue. His avoidance of the issue only makes him appear arrogant.

Rick Perry has thrown his hat in the ring… at last. Perry is another one who may please the establishment types. Some leftist types are singing his praises, a sure sign that he’s the one they want to run against. Perry has fatal political liabilities… his weakness on illegal immigration and his attempt to force the citizens of Texas to have their 11 and 12 year-old daughters inoculated for a cervical cancer virus transmitted by sexual activity. His advocacy of a trans-Texas super highway from Mexico has won him no friends among conservatives. I think his candidacy will falter when these things become common knowledge.

Ron Paul is Ron Paul… and the Paul ‘brownshirts’ were out in force, as usual. He doesn’t have a prayer of a chance. The Pawlenty ship never left the dock.

I’d like to know why Rick Santorum is being shunted to the side. I don’t think he can win and I have questions about where he stands on certain issues, but he should be heard. I don’t think Herman Cain can win either, but I really like the guy and I hope he sticks around. Hunter and McCotter are finito.

It’s going to be a really wild race. Don’t fall for the party BS. Stay focused on the goal in front of us.

Editor’s note: Tim Pawlenty just announced, on ABC’s ‘This Week’, that he has dropped out of the race.

Islamo-Fascists Call For The Overthrow Of The British Government.

August 12, 2011

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.

While police with full body armor (but no guns) try to contain the riots, children as young as nine loot the shops.

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’.

The importation of tens of thousands of unassimilated, mostly uneducated immigrants, many in the country illegally, has Balkanized many of Britain’s neighborhoods where they congregate. Radical mosques throughout Britain have been calling for the destruction of Great Britain for many moons. Scared to death of these ‘enclaves’, the government has gone so far down the paths of self destruction that craven politicians have allowed Islamic Sharia courts to spring up around the country. In plain language, Britain’s cowardly political class has given away the country’s sovereignty.

Watching the shameful progression of events over in England as they unfold is an eduction and a looking glass into our future. Once the political battle is won here in 2012, much more attention needs to be paid to exposing the dangers posed by the un-American activities of subversive elements in this country.

In the meantime, we have but one task. That’s to support as many Constitutional Conservatives as we can in upcoming primary races… and incumbents as well, if they are found to be worthy. As I wrote on July 31, there’s a RINO hunt out there. If you’re a Republican who finds himself or herself on the receiving end… well, you can’t say you didn’t know.

The Markets Do The Talking.

August 9, 2011

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.

Billions and billions of dollars going into the coffers of the enemy, mostly because of the outright cowardice of the Republican leadership. Every single representative and senator who voted yes on the debt sellout had better have some pretty convincing reasons for doing so. Those that are trying to avoid their constituents, by not holding town hall meetings during this congressional break, need to be tracked down.

Look up your representatives’ home district offices and pay them visits. Be respectful. No one listens to obnoxious people. I said ‘respectful’… I didn’t say to be a door mat. You’re angry and you have every reason to be angry, and it’s okay to tell them so in a reasonable manner. That berserker stuff is strictly for the Marxists.

It’s just like last November, we’re just starting a little early, that’s all. Judging by the increasing number of people who write that they hadn’t been inclined to be activist until recently, we are on track for another astounding win. It’s up to us to put solid constitutional conservatives in office. It’s also up to us to punish those lawmakers whom we judge to have not performed the tasks we set for them.

Obama’s job approval ratings came out today. The markets have spoken. Apparently, they see much more clearly than Washington does what an unmitigated disaster these fool politicians have created for us.

So, Where Do We Go From Here?

August 8, 2011

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.

My good friends over at the Patriot Action Network have published some nifty lists, showing just exactly who voted against the expressed will of the American people. Now, I’m not advocating just throwing these folks out with the trash, as much as some of them so richly deserve, and neither are the good folks over at PAN. They’ve listed the representatives who are going to be holding town hall meetings during this congressional ‘vacation’. (Gee… I wish I could afford a vacation). I wouldn’t want to be in some of these people’s shoes when the grilling starts. There are going to be some very pointed questions asked, and no doubt the continued tenure of many of these pols will hang on their answers.

The anger and sense of betrayal out here is palpable. It’s difficult to wrap your mind around the magnitude of the betrayal of the sworn leadership of our party. They actually came off of this debacle looking exactly like they were at the beck and call of the ‘Benighted One’.

Don’t let the Lame Stream and the Marxist agitprop organs discourage or disillusion you. This upcoming election is going to be a much bigger wipeout for the communists than last November was, and they know it. This upcoming election is going to be the most vicious trench-fight in American political history and you have to be prepared for it.

For you patriots who are looking for a home, the Patriot Action Network is the right place to start. Approaching 90,000 members nationwide, the network is bringing like-minded citizens together to defeat the Marxist monster that is destroying our country and our way of life. Once again, there are millions and millions of folks just like us. United we cannot be defeated. United we stand.

Washington – Government In A Bubble.

August 6, 2011

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.

Setting aside for a moment the astronomically absurd concept of a government, any government forcing sound financial corporations into insolvency by forcing them to loan money to people who had not a prayer of fulfilling those commitments… that’s exactly what was done here.

Next came Obama’s 825 billion dollar DeMarxist slush fund, the money from which has been flowing into the coffers of the public sector unions since Obama’s ‘immaculation’ (thanks, Rush).

Short story gone sour: Trillions of dollars poured into a failed government by a failed president. A country in the grip of a depression, clearly caused by our own government’s ineptitude. The Repubic (thanks, Mark Levin) leadership, if that’s what it can be called, has sold us out time after time. Their price has been cheap, too… at least from the Marxist perspective. Stonewall, lie and prevaricate… rabble rouse and use cheap political invective and the Repubics will fold every time.

The Republicans are about to face the wrath that thus far has been reserved for ObaMao and his wannabe Trotskyite sycophants. There may have been some principled decisions among the Republicans. I hope so. And I hope there will be some defensible explanations for those decisions. The primary list is being put together as I write.

Washington has had it its own way for far, far too long. The cozy time-warp capsule that the beltway has existed in is about to burst. How ’bout a strong dose of reality, folks? The same reality you’ve been making the rest of us live in for the last four years.
