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.

Stop! No Way, No How, Go No Further… Halt!

July 28, 2011

Somehow or other, they are working as hard to panic the populace as the president himself. The ‘Tea Party freshmen’ are in revolt, and good on them for it.

The establishment herd has panicked itself so badly that some of the more congenital idiots among the Republican ‘elite’ are actually suggesting that Conservative Republicans and Patriots are helping the Benighted One by opposing the Boehner bill.

That’s pretty desperate, and I understand that some of the arm-twisting in the House by the leadership is pretty intense. There are some who are waffling or just want to compromise to get the heat off their backs. You folks, you freshman patriots, are holding the line despite all they can do. Take heart. You’re an inspiration to us out here.

As of last night, Boehner does not have the votes to pass his really bad bill. Just in case he does, Harry Reid has already pronounced it DOA in the Senate and should it survive by some incredible happenstance, the August hand of Obama the First would be there to strike it down with the scimitar of his peerless veto pen.

House conservatives are threatening to filibuster the bill if it should go forward… and we encourage them to do all that and more. Remember, when one of these RINO patsies rounds down on you, you have the complete support of the entire Patriot Movement… tens of millions of us. Estimates range as high as 60 million very angry and very motivated patriots out here, which is plenty enough to turn any election.

How soon we forget the total ass-kicking of last November. Aside from the overwhelming Republican victories in the House, some twenty three state legislatures went GOP. Stunning figures that were echoed in cities and counties throughout the states.

This bill, and the others just like it, are emblematic of what passes for reasoning, or lack of it, in the Republican establishment. If it was the military, heads would roll, careers finito. Hell, in the private sector, heads would roll. The bill solves nothing… it saves nothing… this is a leadership problem.

Don’t let up on these guys for a second. Don’t take your eyes off of them for a lot less than that.

Americans, Stand Up To The Statists Now!!

January 7, 2011

Due to work commitments, both Skip and I are unable to produce an article today. With yesterday’s reading of the Constitution to the House, I thought this article from March 13, 2010 could be an apt reminder of why this should be necessary.
(Dee, editor).

Now is the time, wherever you are is the place. This is the quintessential battle to save representative democracy for ourselves and our posterity. It boils down to a fundamental struggle between right and wrong, good and evil, darkness and light.
In this war between statist ideology and the rule of law as represented by the Constitution, Bill of Rights and the principles of the founders, there can be only one outcome. Freedom loving American Patriots must prevail against the forces of the extra-legal, extra-Constitutional, Marxist-style tyranny now attempting to gain absolute control of this country OUTSIDE THE LAWS OF OUR LAND AND THE FRAMEWORK OF OUR CONSTITUTION.

Barack Hussein Obama, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid and the rest of the Democrat leadership are in a criminal conspiracy to steal the freedom of three hundred and seven million Americans. They are breaking parliamentary rules and Constitutional law left and right, without regard to, and directly in opposition to, the will of over three quarters of the people of the United States of America, to force the so-called ‘Obama Care’ bill through on a vote they expect to take early next week.

This massive attempt at the government theft and control of seventeen per cent of our Gross National Product, with the end result of the absolute control of the American people in mind, has nothing to do with health care and everything to do with statist tyranny. Barack Hussein Obama, Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi care not one wit for the American people or this country. They only know the thirst for raw power that is the hallmark of the Marxist/Leninist ideologue.

Many times through this battle for the survival of this wondrous land, I and others like me have repeatedly called for our fellow Americans and Patriots to stand forth and be counted. Let your voices be heard for truth and freedom. Now is perhaps the time when our need is the greatest. We must make these ‘lawmakers’ know that we know what they are about, and far more than that, we know who they are!

We must call, write, fax, email and bombard their offices in Washington D.C. and in their individual districts in the various states. Demand answers! Be respectful but tell them exactly what you think and that you know exactly what they are up to.

Once again, it’s OK to be angry but don’t be out of hand. You have every right to be angry when these supposed ‘representatives’ of the people have been anything but. Don’t take no for an answer. It’s our country and our lives and the lives of your children that are at stake. Call and keep calling…visit offices and keep visiting… email and keep emailing.
God love you for your efforts and God save this great nation.

Standby… Voter Rage Will Continue Momentarily.

December 8, 2010

The DeMarxists are flipping out over what they see as Obama’s sell out to the Republicans. Some are threatening a primary challenge… others are less reactionary, but still bitterly critical of their erstwhile Anointed One.

Mary Landrieu - Not as friendly with Obama as in this 2009 photo.

Obama got nowhere with his mealy-mouthed assurances, saying these ‘tax cuts’ for the rich would not stand… and ‘we’ll fight this battle again in two years’. Sure you will Bub, and you’ll get the same result. What we are witnessing is the most dramatic political shipwreck in modern history. It makes Nixon and Watergate look like the panty-raid it was.

It’s really sort of fun watching them, these far left nutcases all trying to out-nutcase themselves in lining up to chastise their leader. They haven’t gotten around to blaming this on George Bush or Sarah Palin yet, but they will.

The Dream Act has become a nightmare. Poor old Harry just can’t get a word in edgewise these days. Republican RINOs and Democrats that are up for election this next cycle are walking around like they’re doing pin the tail on the donkey… only they’re the donkeys. Harry can’t herd his cats… and there’s plenty in the DeMarxist Senate that are up for re-election this cycle, also.

These folks are ready and willing to break party discipline in a New York heartbeat if they think it may soften what’s coming down the pike in 2012. Doesn’t bode well for Harry’s numbers in the Senate now, does it?

We’re Right Back In The Trenches.

December 3, 2010

Pelosi and Reid are right in character and wasting no time in driving last gasp attempts to forward their statist agenda before the New Conservatives take over. Harry Reid made lots of friends by launching four ‘Amnesty Act’ bills at the same time… good ol’ Harry. I guess Harry figured if he threw enough bull bleep, some of it would stick.

Nancy Pelosi is mourning the loss of her pet committee chairmanships, all the while bemoaning the Republican intractability and insensitivity to the needs of the “people”. Ever the people, with the DeMarxists. It’s their #1 modus operandi… along with, “for the children”. Not nearly as catchy as they used to be, these shopworn terms of the Marxist elites. The proletariat isn’t listening to them… we just revolted, remember?

By the way, Nancy, while you’re moaning about Republicans not being willing to compromise… Does anyone remember Nancy of the most ethical Congress in history having conference room door locks changed, to keep Republicans out of the DeMarxists’ nefarious scheming for Obamacare? Tough luck Nancy. We went from having no attention span out here to news and information micro-management and a very long memory.

It’s not Nancy’s brave new world. Not Obama’s either. He’s as determined as ever, but the reality is that the Republicans will be controlling the purse strings from now on, unless or until they prove themselves again unworthy.

The president just ‘can’t get traction’, bemoan the most ardent of his remaining fans. No more popular support from the masses, no more adulation from bought-and-paid-for rock concert crowds. Nothing but failure and condemnation.

The left has been purged of the only moderating influences in that benighted party. You’ll remember them, the ‘blue dogs’? Their leaving means only the most ideologically pure Marxists will remain. This brings the whole thing down to a fundamental battle between us… you and I… the American Patriot who has stood firm through the centuries and who stand firm now… and the forces espousing an evil, dictatorial, government monster machine having neither mind, heart and, most especially, having no soul.

The enemy is the is the party of the left and it must be expunged from American politics. Purely and simply, it has no place in a free America populated by free citizens.

That Was The Week That Was #3.

August 21, 2010

The week started with the Drudge Report headline “Mosque Mess Monday”. It was to get more messy as the week progressed, especially for the fragmenting Democrats.

The previous Friday, Barack Obama had openly declared, at the White House iftar, that it was a constitutional right to be able to build a mosque. Naturally, this greatly pleased the mostly Muslim dinner guests. When challenged on his statement the following day, during a family visit to Florida, Obama explained that he had not been commenting on the wisdom of the decision to place a mosque there. Wisdom was far from the minds of the perpetrators of this odious scheme. It’s a shame that Obama did not use some of the vitriol that he has in abundance for those that seek to serve and support the American people and way of life.

Make no mistake, the choice of the former Burlington building is no sheer coincidence. The name ‘Cordoba’ itself should ring alarm bells. Why would they purposely choose a site that will cost $100 million to develop, which, by all accounts, is money they do not yet have?

Harry Reid

On Monday, Harry Reid stated his belief that the mosque should be built elsewhere. I never thought I’d say it, but well said, Harry. It wouldn’t have anything to do with your slipping election prospects, by any chance?

On Tuesday, it was announced that New York State Governor David Paterson planned to meet with the project developers with the intention of offering them alternative state-owned land for the building. This was rapidly followed by a statement from lead developer Sharif El-Gamal, who insisted that the subject was not up for debate. More proof, as if any was needed, of their determination to build in this particular part of Manhattan.

Nancy Pelosi

The most ridiculous item of the week came on Wednesday, with Nancy Pelosi’s call for an investigation into who is funding the mosque opposition. Funding? It doesn’t take funding to voice your opinion on plans which are an affront to the memory of the victims, the grief of the surviving families and the sacrifices of the rescue services on, and after, 9-11. I get the distinct feeling that, as this affair rolls on, some unpleasant realities will come to light. Every Trojan horse eventually reveals its contents.

The end of the week saw some more bad news on the economy. New claims for unemployment benefits rose to 500,000, the highest since November 2009. The number of people on emergency benefits also increased by 260,105 to 4.75 million. Sounds like more change for the worse, and very little hope.

Finally, on the subject of statistics, a Time/CNN poll revealed that 24% of Americans believe that Barack Obama is Muslim. Surprisingly, given the political leanings of the pollsters, it was found that 75% of those surveyed hold a favorable impression of the Jewish faith, just above Catholicism and Protestantism. The Muslim cult came last at 44%. With Obama’s current Presidential approval index at minus eighteen points, could it be time for a change of faith?

That Was The Week That Was #2.

August 14, 2010

This week, it seemed that most of America’s (and much of the world’s) press was covering the antics of an airline flight attendant as the main headline story. Not to feel left out, I thought I would mention it. That’s about as far as I’m going with it, a mere mention. There are probably hundreds of people every week that quit their jobs and walk out, even in these times of high unemployment, although perhaps in not such a spectacular fashion.

There must be many a Democrat that wished there was an escape chute to bail out from the Capitol. Grab a couple of beers, pull the lever and slide into the land of Independents. Probably an appealing idea, except to those leftist ideologues who really believe that their policies are working.

Untruths take three forms amongst Democrats. Firstly, the ‘save your own hide’ type, as in “I did not have sex with that woman”. Secondly, the ‘convince yourself it’s true’ variety, the sort often uttered by the socialists that have been brainwashed into believing the most irrational and unsubstantiated agendas. The third is the ‘apologetic’, as in “I’m sorry if I was misunderstood, what I really meant was…”

A classic example of the latter was Harry Reid, who later explained that his statement, expressing disbelief that Hispanics could vote Republican, was worded that way as his audience were Hispanic. It’s strange that one who was quick enough to point out the possible ethnic profiling result (which was a total fabrication by the Democrats and prohibited in the bill) of Arizona’s illegal immigration law, could himself label all Hispanic Americans as supporters of uncontrolled immigration.

While it is a public speaking technique, to identify with your audience, he shot himself in the foot by going too far. I wonder if he would have used the same line to a black audience, replacing the word ‘Hispanic’ for ‘black’. Maybe not, given the Democrat history of supporting slavery and their association to the Klan.

Blago continued to deny any wrong-doing to the end of the trial, which could now go to a re-trial, after the jury could not decide on most of the twenty four counts. The antithesis of this is Charlie Rangel who, rather than denying allegations, has admitted to “making some mistakes”. Reminds me of the old 1950s British cops-and-robbers movies, where the burglar, complete with ‘swag-bag’ over his shoulder, gets caught outside the premises by the local ‘bobby’. “It’s a fair cop, guv’nor”, says the miscreant. Perhaps Charlie watched those movies.

Charlie Rangel celebrated his 80th birthday this week

The week ended with another unbelievable statement from the President himself. Releasing a statement regarding Friday evening’s White House iftar (Ramadan meal) he said that they “remind us of the principles that we hold in common, and Islam’s role in advancing justice, progress, tolerance and the dignity of all human beings.” He went on to say “Ramadan is a celebration of a faith known for great diversity and racial equality … a reminder that Islam has always been part of America and that American Muslims have made extraordinary contributions to our country”.

Always been part of America? Islam was virtually unknown in the US until the 20th century. As for “advancing justice, progress, tolerance, dignity and racial equality”… is he getting confused with another religion? If this wasn’t from the mouth of the leader of the free world, I’d find it hilarious.

If someone had told me, twenty years ago, that the American President in 2010 would be an Islamic socialist, I’d have called them crazy. Good thing nobody did – I’d have been tempted by a little wager which could have cost me dearly. Not nearly as much as it’s costing America now, though. Remember, in the run-up to November, the stakes have never been higher!

It Is The Immigration Issue, Stupid!

August 13, 2010

This is the big one, boiling along just under the surface, aside from having to deal with a failed economy that is further bedeviled by a bunch of academic Keynesian dilettantes, whose Marxist zeal for redistributive policies are the reason for the problems we’re slogging through as a nation now.

Harry Reid addresses Hispanic voters in Las Vegas

You think this is a dismal place, this economy? If they (the left) had their way, it would rapidly become a dark place devoid of joy or hope. Our Republic is being assaulted on so many fronts, it’s practically a full time job just keeping track of it all. Second only to the economy is the illegal immigration issue. There’s scarcely a state in the union that hasn’t been affected by the influx of illegal aliens, primarily from across our southern border which is some 2,000 miles of shared border with Mexico and, for all practical purposes, undefended.

While Barack Hussein Obama is making great noise about a ‘border appropriation’ of some 800 million dollars, he has done nothing about restoring some 500 border patrol agents he stripped from service and reassigned in the last two years. Our international border stands virtually undefended and indefensible, at least while Obama holds sway.

America is really peed about this one too, Harry. Despite the alternate universe you reside in, Mr Reid, most Americans of Mexican descent are strongly against illegal immigration. Another thing Harry… these Mexican Americans whom you treated so flippantly and whom you dismissed so lightly will make their weight felt in the upcoming election. You see, Harry, these are family people. They are hardworking and successful Americans who, until recently, had been reluctant to come forward in the face of criticism from the left. Many of these folks have been at town hall meetings and tea parties all over the country. They are your neighbors and friends. They are my neighbors and friends. They are Americans.

California is flat broke and can’t copy big brother in the beltway by printing new bucks and distributing riches at the discretion of a few partisan power brokers. The insane practice of harboring illegal aliens in sanctuary cities, while tying the hands of our law enforcement to prevent them enforcing laws regarding illegal entrance into this country that already exist, is nuts to the max, especially in the face of the growing gang threat out there.

California has an annual budget shortfall of some 26.3 billion dollars. Ten point five billion went to services, from education to incarceration for illegals in this state.
Uh, gee, I could show the California legislature how to close the better part of half that gap.

The other big showdown of this election is about to commence…
Eighty one days and counting….

NRA Backing (Dingy) Harry Reid?!! Members, Revolt!

July 6, 2010

Say it isn’t so. But it is. Thanks to Erick Erickson (Redstate) and Angry White Dude for being all over this, much to the NRA’s chagrin.  I’m getting that feeling that I have when dealing with the Repubics (thanks, Mark Levin) in the US Senate. It’s the feeling that there’s something nasty crawling on your skin.

My support for the NRA has been on the wane for some years now. Like other members, I’ve seen comments such as “I had a basic membership and they kept harassing me for more funds” and “I felt like they were no longer supporting the Second Amendment or myself as a gun owner”. There are plenty of these comments out there and they’re not hard to find. In my own case, they kept sending me unsolicited materials, such as videos, promptly followed by an invoice. Annoying, to say the least.

Let me say up front that most of my buddies are gun owners and most are members. I’m going to actively urge everyone I know to cease support for the NRA forthwith. Fortunately for us, there is a viable and growing alternative for gunners in “Gun Owners of America”. These folks haven’t forgotten who and what they stand for. The list of the NRA’s transgressions against its membership and the Constitution is long. Shame on me, I had been following this story at a distance. When I saw hints out there that the NRA, in its misplaced zeal for covering its own pathetic rear end, were turning their backs on a solid Reagan conservative in favor of that slimy, walking wart Harry Reid, I went ballistic.

It’s reminiscent of the sell-out of the AARP membership by its leadership, for cozy political favors by the Democrat Congress. I can’t confirm the actual numbers, but the figure I have seen is that it cost them over 150,000 members. That’s not chump change.

The ‘Repubics’ in the Senate and House have seen first-hand what a hostile and angry Patriot Movement can do to their re-election prospects. Hear that, Lindsey? Just keep telling yourself how irrelevant we are. You too, McCain. JD Hayworth may be a flawed candidate, but he never assaulted the First Amendment. Anyone remember McCain-Feingold? Or, let’s see, the ‘gang of fourteen’? Or how about McAmnesty? Yeah, the one McCain is trying to make you forget about. McCain needs to go.

Like the Republican leadership, at least before the Conservative Patriot Movement, the NRA’s leadership has lost its way. That’s a shame. But we as Patriots and gun owners cannot support the sellout of our Constitution, and by extension our country, for political expediency. For those of you that think it will do any good, or just want to vent, the NRA’s number is 800-392-8683. Knowing gun owners, I have a feeling that they’ll be somewhat less inclined to be forgiving than seniors to the AARP. Go on to Angry White Dude’s site for June 29, 2010 to see a list of the NRA’s perfidy. I think that “Gun Owners of America” is going to see a big uptick in membership.

There is an object lesson for Republicans here. This is what happens when you violate the trust of your base. The days where we’ll sit back and take this crap are gone… whether AARP, NRA or RNC… we have choices. We can vote with our feet, we can back Conservative candidates and we can support a gunowners’ organization who shares our fundamental love of God, Country and Constitution. HOO-RAH!

By The Way, While You Weren’t Looking…

May 30, 2010

The nation is spellbound, as it watches the monumental struggle between puny mankind and elemental natural forces at 5,000 feet beneath the ocean. This is an environmental disaster of the first rank and no one will argue that, but while you, as concerned citizens, are focused on the Gulf coast, guess what your US Senate was doing?

Reid and Schumer

They’re scheming to steal your liberties and give them to illegal aliens. Charles (Chuck) Schumer and Majority Leader Harry Reid on the Senate side and Luis Gutierrez, (D) Ill. and Solomon Ortiz, (D) Texas for the House side. The two proposed bills graphically illustrate just exactly what the leftists are really all about. For elected representatives to embrace and foster this decidedly self-serving and onerous legislation is, in my opinion, tantamount to a direct assault and contravention of our Constitution. These people should be investigated, as well as their ties to leftist illegal alien supporters and those who thrive from the illegal alien trade.

This legislation is rife with such cute alien incentives such as free automatic social security. Hey, gee whiz citizens, where’s our free anything? Silly me, it takes mucho dinero to keep those aliens here, in our schools, in our hospitals and last, but certainly not least, in our jails and prisons.

There’s an article I’d recommend you read on ‘Right Wing News’ entitled ‘22 Problems With The Senate’s Illegal Immigration Bill‘. This article, by John Hawkins, lays it out pretty well and makes me wonder why these perennial sellout politicians haven’t been called for treason against the country and the constitution.

If there are any Republicans that support this amnesty we must drive them from office. We can no longer afford ‘Republicans In Name Only’. Now, perhaps, we should add ‘CINO’ – Conservatives In Name Only, since conservatism seems to be the party banner.

It’s time to start lighting up the phone lines again, not that you’ve ever stopped, but we’ll have to really hammer them to get their attention. Don’t ever let them distract you from the goal of chasing these Marxists out of government and keeping it that way.
