It is once again that those of us trying so desperately to prevent our country from being taken over by the dark forces of the left may now be faced with a scenario that very few of us likely saw coming.  That being, unfortunately, the fact that our Republican leaders in Congress no longer wish to have our party in control of Congress.  It’s beginning to look as if they actually prefer being the minority party if for no other reason than because governing is simply too hard.  Now while I’d like to say this isn’t true, all of the evidence would seem to say that it is.

So now, once again, in order to prevent the Democrats from seizing control, we the voters may be forced into taking matters into our own hands.  But with that said, we seem to have very few options.  We can choose to vote for those who many of us, as conservatives, long ago lost confidence, and the trust in, however distasteful that may be, or we work to gather together suitable primary candidates who would be willing to challenge those who are nothing more the Democrats in Republican clothing.  If we choose to go the primary route, we need to hurry.

Or we do nothing.  We simply roll over and allow what has become a radically leftwing Democrat Party assume complete control of Congress.  And it should be obvious what happens from there.  The primary focus of this new Democrat majority would be one thing and one thing only.  And that would, of course, be the impeachment of our duly elected president, Donald Trump.  In other words, we would be allowing ‘The Swamp’ to simply rewrite history and make it appear as if the 2016 election never even happened. Is that what we REALLY want?

And then we have that soon to be ex-senator Jeff Flake, who just last week told a New Hampshire audience that maybe the Republican Party does not deserve to lead.  But Flake doesn’t seem to be the only one to hold that opinion.  Republican ‘leaders’, and I use the term loosely, including Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell, have frequently lectured Republican President Donald Trump on his words and actions.  And now we have word that Ryan is set to pass the second largest spending bill in U.S. history, one that is second only to Barry’s Trillion dollar stimulus debacle.

This ‘Ryan budget’ funds all of the Democrat priorities but leaves out any funding the Trump border wall.  The bill will also funnel billions of dollars to Obamacare markets. Is this what Republicans who are interested in maintaining their majorities would do? This feckless, gutless bunch of RINO’s are apparently tired of being in charge.  As the minority, they can campaign as conservatives without ever having to deliver. As the majority, they’re expected to deliver, but WON’T, because they’re NOT really conservatives and are really no different than the Democrats.

And I’m thinking that losing in November has now become the Republican plan.  They want the Democrats to regain control so ‘they’ can then begin work on impeaching President Trump. That way they can get rid of Trump without leaving any fingerprints behind.  It’s a win/win for them.  Democrats impeach Trump and stop all of the committee investigations into ‘The Swamp.’  And once Trump is gone next they’ll be coming for our guns and erasing our tax cuts.  In other words, the returning of things back to the way they were before President Trump.

And it seems to become a little more obvious with each passing day that the Republicans are less and less interested in remaining the majority.  And we all know that once the Democrats return to power it will be in very short order that they get back to their agenda of destroying this country just as quickly, and as completely, as they can. Republicans will never again have the opportunity to be in control of any branch of government.  But then I don’t suppose it really matters, because they give the Democrats everything they want anyway.

Republicans have done nothing that indicates they want to win.  Despite record tax revenue, falling crime rates, rising stock markets and myriad other signs of successes, they always come back to how “President Trump is mean.”  So like I said, it’s going to be up to those who genuinely love this country if we are going to have any hope of keeping control of both the House and Senate.  And if we succeed then we must DEMAND new leadership with zero RINO’s at the helm.  Either we work to ‘Make American Great Again’, or allow the Democrats to destroy it.

I’m confident that most Republicans realize that McConnell and Ryan are traitors, it’s just the folks back home who seem to be a bit myopic in that regard.  Neither of these guys have any intention of trying to hold onto the House or the Senate, because they are not loyal to any party, nor to the Constitution. Their gravy train was nearly derailed by President Trump, and they want to get it moving again.  And while they can’t impeach him, what they can do is to allow the Democrats to take control of Congress so THEY can then impeach President Trump.

And so it would seem that election becomes all the more the consequential than the one before regarding the country we love.  And it’s not just the Democrat Party that we are now being forced to contend with, but it also seems to be a growing number of those in the Republican Party.  And while the effort to safeguard our country from the forces of darkness may seem overwhelming at times and more than a little daunting, we should never allow ourselves to even consider the possibility of defeat.  If anything, we should now be more determined than ever.



Romney 2

Well it’s official, another fossil in Congress is finally calling it quits.  This time it’s Utah Sen. Orrin Hatch who announced in a video message on Tuesday that he will finally retire at the end of his current term — after serving four decades in the U.S. Senate.  First of all just let me say that there is no reason on God’s green Earth why anyone should be permitted to remain in Congress for 40 years, or should not be gone long before they reach the ripe old age of 83 years old.

Anyway, Hatch announced that there comes a time for each good fighter to hang up the gloves. “For me, that time is soon approaching.”  He went on to say, “After much prayer and discussion with family and friends, I’ve decided to retire at the end of this term.”  He said he will miss serving in the Senate but looks forward to time with family, especially his wife Elaine.  Hatch added, “I may be leaving the Senate, but the next chapter in my public service is just beginning.”

And who is it that’s said to be at least considering a run for Hatch’s seat, well none other than ex-Massachusetts governor, and failed 2012 Republican presidential nominee, Mitt Romney.  I find it pretty rather hard to believe that in the entire state of Utah no one can be found who would better suited to represent the people of Utah than Mitt Romney.  So Utah now needs to import this loser from Massachusetts or what, exactly, a Democrat will win the seat?

As far as I’m concerned a vote for Romney is little more than a vote for those of the ‘resistance’.  In case you forgot this is the guy who gave us Barry ‘O’ for another four years.  He folded like a cheap suit in the debates after having Barry on the ropes in the first round, without even trying.  And then in the next round instead of coming out swinging he simply took a dive.  And to be honest, to this day that I don’t think that he really even wanted to win, he just wanted to run.

And let’s face it, what is it that Romney has ever actually accomplished other than to run for public office. He just keeps running for office while always being on the prowl for some cushy political appointment.  And Honestly, do we really want, or need, another John McCain who’s only purpose in life seems to be to take advantage of every opportunity that might present itself, no matter how trivial, to thwart President Trump ?  We need a MAGA advocate, not another RINO wannabe.

And as long as we’re being honest here, I think it’s pretty easy to see that Romney is little more than a self-serving, arrogant, elitist.  His desire to serve the public interest is as phony as a three dollar bill.  He serves only himself and his own rather sizable ego.  He opposes those of us who proudly wear the moniker of ‘Deplorable’ because we’re simply not sophisticated enough to understand the nuances involved when it comes to being part of the global community.

So at the end of the day, what we may very well end up with here is having a guy who was born in Michigan, was the governor of a very liberal state, and who doesn’t actually live in Utah becoming the next Senator from Utah.  How nutty is that?  I mean, what the heck is the difference between Romney and that well-known New York carpet-bagging liberal named Hitlery?  Not much apparently, as they have far more things in common than there are differences between them.


RINOs 05

What is it about our current cadre of congressional RINOs that has them so afraid of one guy down in Alabama?  Because even as the accusations being made against Judge Moore continue to unravel, it would seem that the number of RINOs who have become increasingly fearful of a Moore victory, and therefore more determined than ever in their effort to convince the Judge that he needs to step aside not only for the good of the party, but the good of the country, continues to grow.  And yet, we hear nary a word about the Democrat of whom we have pictures while groping a sleeping female.  Our RINOs seem to have no problem with the true perverts among them.

And again just this past weekend it was RINO John Thune, Senator from South Dakota, appearing on “Fox News Sunday,” who said he would like to see President Trump ask Alabama GOP Senate hopeful Roy Moore to step aside.  Thune said, “I would like to see the president come out and support what many of us have said and that is that Roy Moore needs to step aside, allow somebody else to be write in candidate. We can win that seat.”  He continued, “If Roy Moore wins and he comes into the Senate in January there will immediately be an ethics investigation which is going to be a cloud that he will be operating in. It’s going to be a distraction to us and our agenda.”

Meanwhile, also on Sunday, it was during an appearance on NBC’s “Meet The Press,” that Thune’s fellow RINO, and a guy who’s just as much of a Moore opponent as is Thune, Sen. Rob Portman, from Ohio, said it “would be better for the country” if Alabama GOP Senate hopeful Roy Moore stepped aside.  Better for the country?  And it was the host of this ‘fake news’ show, the esteemed bonehead Chuck Todd, who proceeded to ask Portman, “Do you agree with the president that it is better if Alabamians elect someone accused of being a child molester over a democratic simply due to ideology?”  Nope, no bias here, let’s just move along to the lynching.

Portman responded, “Well, I stand with what I said earlier which is I think it would be best if he stepped aside. I think the president said that initially. I think that would be better for the country. The election is in a few weeks and there is a possibility for folks to do write in candidates. We will see. I think it would be best if he stepped aside.”  Todd asked, “If you were a voter in Alabama what would you do? Jeff Flake said he would vote Democrat if Roy Moore was the only other option?  And Portman agreed with his fellow RINO soon to be ex-Senator Jeff Flake, saying, “I would probably vote for a Republican but it wouldn’t be Roy Moore.”

And it was then that Todd went on to ask, “You would cast that vote knowing it probably throws the election, the more Republicans that split their vote. You are okay if a Democrat gets elected as long as it is not Roy Moore?”  And Portman said, “As you know I endorsed Luther Strange. He is my colleague now. I never endorsed Roy Moore. When the allegations came out I did say as the women went on the record I thought there was a lot of credibility in what they were saying and I didn’t find the response very credible. And that’s how I came up with my position.”  I smell fear coming from the RINO’s because they know ‘Senator’ Moore represents a serious threat to them.

Yet rumor now has it that this next election will result in what is already being described by some as a tidal wave of Democrat gains.  And if that truly does turn out to be the case, then I can only assume that the American voter is a dumber breed than even I thought.  What the game plan should be, and what it truly needs to be, is to make 2018 the year when we finally make RINOs extinct.  And certainly not by electing Democrats!  Our primary focus needs to be on wiping out Rinosaurs like Corker, Flake, and any other who doesn’t want to be embarrassed by getting defeated in a primary.  We MUST NEVER again elect another RINO or Democrat to higher office!

Because when you vote for a RINO you might as well be voting for a Democrat.  And that’s exactly why we need to primary every single RINO we can.  We need to gut the McConnell forces that seek nothing more than to drag our country to the left, albeit at a slower pace than the Democrats.  The sooner all of the McConnell supporters are voted out, the sooner we can get a real leader in charge, one whose priorities match up much better with the priorities of the American people.  Every RINO, regardless of whether they are in the House or the Senate, needs to be targeted for defeat until we are finally able to make sure that the entire species is made to be forever extinct.

Do nothing professional politicians in the Republican Senate like Thune and Portman are fearful that a man of principle, like Judge Moore, might be crashing into their exclusive little club.  The wretched RINOs squandered landslide Republican victories with their timid hearts and lack of spine.  Thune, McConnell, and the untrustworthy establishment have done great damage to America.  What’s always amazing is that once these tools as elected they immediately become experts. You name it and they’re an expert and they always know better about how you should think.  I wish they would all have a shelf life of one term and then automatically become extinct.

Democrats always love to put forward the claim that they are guardians of middle class Americans and yet the only ones they seem to go out of their way for are those who wish to come to this country illegally and once here seek to stay here, or those who can’t decide what gender they want to be.  When you vote Democrat you vote for the end of our Constitution.  But no big deal, right?  It only happens to be the one document that separates America from every other country on the planet in that it actually guarantees to us those certain unalienable Rights endowed upon us by our Creator.  Something never before achieved throughout the history of mankind.

And now we’re hearing about what I can only assume is yet another last ditch attempt to sabotage Judge Moore and to hand the Alabama election to ultra-liberal, Doug Jones.  And it comes to us in the person of retired Marine Col. Lee Busby, who told The Daily Beast, “I just don’t believe that either one of them are qualified to be in the U.S. Senate.”  He cites the sexual allegations against Moore as having “created enough distaste in my mind” to rule out support for the Republican nominee.  And he lists Democrat candidate Jones’ extreme abortion positions as disqualifying for Alabama voters.  Yet oddly enough, he does admit to attending a fundraiser for Jones.

Apparently, since retiring, Busby has been the CEO of his own business and worked as a defense consultant and investment banker.  And besides attending a Jones fundraiser, he also voted for Ohio governor, and vocal NeverTrumper, John Kasich in 2016.  If there is one thing that’s 100% guaranteed in this scenario, it’s that McConnell is behind the Colonel’s entering the race.  The RINOs depend on Moore’s not being elected, and McConnell will do whatever is necessary, including the election of a Democrat, to make certain that Moore loses.  And all I can say is that if you are an Alabama voter, please don’t fall for this crap!  Because they’re thinking that you will.

Lastly, the good Colonel notwithstanding, in my opinion there’s no need for the Judge to step aside, because from what I have seen there is not one iota of evidence that he has done anything wrong.  All we have heard are nothing more than unsubstantiated rumors and innuendo started by a rag of newspaper.  Meanwhile, there is plenty of evidence that Judge Moore is a decent, honorable man and a perfect gentleman.  He will be a splendid Senator who will represent the interests of the people of Alabama.  The question is why are Republicans, like Thune and Portman, to name just a couple, so anxious to hand over this longtime Republican seat to an ultra-liberal Democrat?


RINOs 13

Yes, it’s once again that we have yet another reason to thank the people of Kentucky for their willingness to send back to the Senate someone who, together with Paul Ryan, is one of the most useless assholes, politically speaking, on the planet.  Because instead of assisting in the defense of one of our Republican candidates against what are, most assuredly, nothing more than scurrilous accusations, what do we see old McConnell trying to do?  Nothing more than to try to exact a little revenge by torpedoing the man who defeated the candidate he endorsed in the primary.

It would seem that in his rush to judgement, McConnell has assembled a few of those usual suspects, his fellow RINOs, one of which is John McCain, of all people, and announced that if allegations of misconduct are true, Alabama Senate Republican candidate Judge Roy Moore should drop out of the race.  Well duh, but it would seem that McConnell and his buddy, braindead McCain, are unwilling to wait to see if they’re true as they are already calling for the Judge to step aside.  Might that be because the Judge would be someone unwilling to go along with the RINOs, if elected?

Anyway, as most should already know, the rag known as ‘The Washington Post’ released a story earlier this week alleging that Judge Moore initiated a sexual encounter with a 14-year-old girl when he was 32, as well as other cases of sexual misconduct.  In a written statement, Moore denied those allegations.  That statement said in part: “These allegations are completely false and are a desperate political attack by the National Democrat Party and the Washington Post on this campaign.”  While this smear is so completely transparent, it should not have been unexpected.

But the Judge’s statement apparently wasn’t sufficient for McConnell and his band of RINOs.  McConnell said, “If these allegations are true, he must step aside.”  And of course right behind him was fellow RINO Jeff Flake, who stated, “If there is any shred of truth to the allegations against Roy Moore, he should step aside immediately.”  And yet another longtime RINO, Susan Collins, said, “If there is any truth at all to these horrific allegations, Roy Moore should immediately step aside as a Senate candidate.”  These clowns would like nothing better than for the Democrat to win this election.

And joining in the chorus we have other RINOs now crawling out from under their individual rocks to join in the slandering of Judge Moore.  It was none other than Lisa Murkowski who went so far as to say, “I’m horrified and if this is true he needs to step down immediately.”  Murkowski also said that she has already spoken to Luther Strange about becoming a write-in challenger to oppose Moore in the December 12 election.  RINO Rob Portman said, “It was very troubling … if what we read is true and people are on the record so I assume it is,” adding that “Moore should step aside.”

And then we have he who is perhaps the biggest fraud of all, John McCain, who tweeted on Thursday, “The allegations against Roy Moore are deeply disturbing and disqualifying. He should immediately step aside and allow the people of Alabama to elect a candidate they can be proud of.”  A candidate we can be proud of?  Like we’re all so proud of you, you lying sack of shit?  Over the years McCain has become little more than a sick joke, and to be honest, I am literally counting the days until I see the headline track across the bottom of my television screen that he is finally dead.

I’ve always been told that you can judge a man by the caliber of his enemies.  And if we take a closer look at those now calling for Judge Moore to abandon this Senate race, it’s a rather unscrupulous and rancid bunch that we come up with.  McConnell, Flake, Collins, Murkowski, Portman and McCain, RINOs all.  Not a true conservative in the bunch and yet we’re just supposed to follow the recommendation of these swamp creatures, that Judge Moore needs to now throw in the towel?  Really? There is absolutely nothing about that that would make any amount of sense.  Nothing!

Oh, and we can now add another name to our list of RINOs calling for the Judge to step aside.  That would be none other than failed RINO candidate for president, Mitt Romney, who’s quite willing to take part in this slandering of Judge Moore, where the accused is put in the impossible position of trying to prove a negative.  I’m ashamed I ever voted for Romney, or McCain.  Of course our ‘Establishment’ RINOs want Moore to step aside.  If they can’t beat conservatives in the primary elections, then they will do whatever they feel needs to be done in order to maintain their control of the GOP.

Look, I think it’s pretty clear what’s really underway here, and it’s nothing more than a coordinated, and even quite possibly a preemptive, strike against Judge Moore because he dared to run against McConnell’s handpicked candidate, Luther Strange, in the primary run-off back in September and was able to defeat him, and pretty handily so.  Judge Moore’s campaign said in a subsequent statement that if the allegations were true, they would have surfaced during his previous campaigns.  And he added, “This garbage is the very definition of fake news.”  And on that point I would agree!

It would seem that there is now no level to which our RINOs in Congress will not sink in their effort not only to sabotage the Trump Presidency, but to also ensure that come 2018 they will be able to willingly hand over control of Congress to the Democrats.  Which I can only assume must now be their ‘Priority One’.  Because our Republicans in Congress, who have been handed control of both houses, have once again chosen to squander yet another opportunity handed to them by the people.  And what have the people gotten in return?  Nothing, they’ve just gotten SCREWED!

This is a perfect example of just how little these ‘Establishment’ politicians care about the forgotten men and women of this country.  And quite frankly it doesn’t matter if they have a ‘D’ or an ‘R’ after their names because they’re all from ‘The Swamp.’  The attacks on Moore are obviously politically motivated since there haven’t been any past allegations until after he’d won the primary.  It’s no surprise that McConnell and the other usual RINO suspects are piling on the Judge.  After all, behaving as they now are is much easier than doing what they were elected to do.

Republican voters must fully prepare themselves for the attacks that will surely be coming not only from the Democrats, but also those we now know will be coming from those within our own party.  As 2018 creeps closer it will be all manner of “accusers” that will be crawling out of the woodwork.  It’s all the RINOs and their Democrat compatriots have left.  It’s in this latest scam that we have to hope Alabama voters will see through the timing of these false accusations.  Such tactics didn’t work against Trump, nor will fake ‘Weinstein-like’ accusations work against the Judge.

The RINO’s involved in this little charade are easily as corrupt as the Democrats.  They all need to be gotten rid of.  I’m sure that they’re hoping to convince the good people of Alabama, or at least enough of them, not to vote for Judge Moore.  They figure the voters in Alabama are too stupid see what it is that they are actually up to.  I only ask the voters not to allow themselves to be fooled by what is so very obviously a politically motivated hit job.  And the RINOs should not be allowed to get away with it!  Voters must stand strong against this blatant attempt to influence an election.

And besides, if the Judge steps aside it will only serve to encourage these RINOs, and their Democrat allies, to dig up even more supposed victims to accuse every conservative candidate of this crap, all in their effort to maintain their status quo.  So there’s really only one of two ways to go on this.  You can either wilt under what are clearly false accusations, or you stand and fight fire with fire.  Personally, I’m for fighting fire with fire.  Because that’s really all these ‘swamp’ creatures understand.  They’re far more concerned about winning at any cost, because they can’t win on the issues.


RINOs 05

As I have said before, it’s these days that I watch very little ‘Fox News’ but, having said that, I did recently catch wind of something that was said by one of the hosts of a new program on that network, one which I am very much in agreement with.  This new program is called “The Fox News Specialists”, and the host to whom I am referring is Eric Bolling.  And it was his statement calling out those who are opposing President Trump and his agenda that I very much agree with.  These individuals who like to refer to themselves as being ‘conservative’ but are, in realty, nothing of the sort.

Bolling pointed out how RINO Sen. Jeff Flake – who is up for reelection in 2018 – is now busy writing an anti-Trump book.  And he noted that Flake’s fellow RINO, Arizona senator John McCain, has also been very outspoken in his criticism of the president.  Bolling also pointed out how RINO Sen. Lindsay Graham is delivering his own brand of Russia-related “anti-Trump venom,” adding that Graham is up for reelection in 2020.  The focus of the 2018 election and every election thereafter must be to replace as many of these RINOs as possible with those who ‘are’ conservative.

Bolling said that attacking Trump might not be the best campaign strategy, because once you get out of the swamps of Washington, D.C. and New York City, you see that the American people love Trump.  Bolling said, “The DOW is 22,000, a record 153 million Americans are employed, Neil Gorsuch is on the high court and illegal immigration is falling like a rock.”  And added, “Tough to run against that.”  He said that “real conservatives” want the country to prosper, while many ‘Establishment Republicans’ egos are too bloated to admit the president is succeeding.

He suggested that the Republican Party might be better off without these “bad hombres,” and it might be time to “repeal and replace” them in Congress.  Bolling concluded, “Let’s make RINOs an endangered political species.”  And I could not agree more.  The focus, at least for those on the right, should be to act as that last line of defense between ‘The Establishment’, both right and left, as they do all that they can to prevent President Trump from doing those things that got him elected.  Our response MUST NOT be to elect more Democrats, but to elect MORE conservatives!

Sadly, our current batch of congressional Republicans are creating the impression that they have absolutely no idea how to govern.  And by doing so they are placing in jeopardy why we elected President Trump.  And it would seem that party unity is a concept that is completely foreign to them.  They are obsessed with getting favorable press, getting re-elected, enjoying their perks, and maintaining their ‘gentlemen’ status.  They pay more attention to RINO elites than they do to the people.  Republicans have apparently not gotten the message from the people who are really pissed off at Washington.

And let me make something very clear here, unless they make some rather significant changes in how they conduct the peoples’ business, I worry that this could very well be their last chance to govern for decades.  And while many Americans are saying that now may be the time for an Independent Party, one that is built on protecting the Constitution and providing for our national defense, I would argue that what we need to do instead is to use the leftists as our example and seize control the Republican Party in the same way that the left has now seized control of the Democrat Party.

Because even after the voters delivered the House in 2010 and 2012, the Senate 2014 and the White House in 2016, all of which the Republicans said they needed in order for them to make the changes demanded by the people, they have still refused to act.  Therefore the time has come for President Trump to begin to call these RINOs out by name.  He needs to go directly to the people and point out in very clear terms just how it is that these RINOs are now working arm in arm with the Democrats in the continuing attempt to prevent him from doing what we, the American people, elected him to do.

And the RINOs had better listen to the people or they will soon be made to become extinct.  With all things considered I feel that President Trump is doing a good job.  All Republicans in Congress have a choice to make, support the president or be replaced with someone who will.  Come 2018 we the voters must get rid of as many Democrats and RINOs as we can.  We must act on our disgust with Washington as we did when we picked as our leader a man from outside the beltway and tasked him with draining ‘The Swamp.’  He can’t be stopped if the American people are behind him.

Frankly at this point I’m not sure if there is anything I can say that would prevent what seems to be a growing number of my fellow conservatives from simply giving up on the Republican Party.  I would only ask that they reconsider and, if their district or state is currently sending a Democrat or RINO off to Washington, become a recruiter, or sorts, to convince potential conservative candidates to run against those currently in office.  We the People do still control our own fate, but if we are to have any chance of succeeding, we must get off the bench and onto the field.

Call me naïve, but we can’t afford to simply throw up our hands and complain about how many times we’ve been lied to by those who have told us that they believe as we do, only to find out later that they don’t.  What we must do is replace them with someone else, and if that proves too, to have been a mistake then we try again.  What we must NEVER do is surrender to those on the left, because that is exactly what they want us to do.  And who knows, in the end the left may still come to win but we must do all that we can to make them know that they have been in a fight!


RINOs 16

After years of promising us that they would bring an end to one of most horrendous pieces of legislation ever to be forced upon the American people, and one that was ‘passed’ in the dark of night and by using some of most devious political tactics imaginable, we’re now finding out that many of those promises were made with there being no intention of them being kept.  Now I suppose we should have known all along that they were never serious about repealing Obamacare, and maybe we bear some of the responsibility for this current debacle because we believed them.  But that does little to alter the fact that Obamacare has cause far more damage than any benefit that it may have provided.  And I realize that there are many who are ready to throw in the towel when it comes to voting for Republicans ever again.  I would only ask that they resist from throwing the baby out with the bathwater.

So we know that Mitch McConnell failed to garner the support needed to pass the motion to proceed on the watered-down version of the Obamacare repeal bill just after 1:30 a.m. Friday morning.  The attempt failed because three RINOs, John McCain, Lisa Murkowski and Susan Collins, opted to identify as Democrats, joining with the other 48 Democrats in voting against the measure.  While the failure to get the necessary votes comes as yet another blow to McConnell, it once again demonstrates very clearly that he lacks any real leadership ability.  We’re told that he struggled for months to get members of his party to come to a consensus on replacement language.  But is that the action of a true leader?  And after months of negotiations, Republican lawmakers were unable to come to a consensus on key provisions, including how to handle cuts to Medicaid in expansion states and whether they should defund Planned Parenthood.

And what does it say about these three RINOs when you have someone like Chuckie Schumer heaping praise on them for their votes against the ‘skinny’ Obamacare repeal.  Chuckie said that he and McCain “have been friends for a very long time, ever since the Gang of Eight, which we put together. And I have not seen a senator who speaks truth to power as strongly, as well, and as frequently as John McCain. The very same courage he showed as a Naval Aviator in Vietnam, he showed last night, and has shown time and time again.”  He added, “And certainly not to be forgotten, of equal praise, are Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski. They were amazing. And, women are, in so many instances, stronger than men. They brag less about it, but they are. And last night sort of proved that. And as somebody who is in a family of strong women, I very much appreciate their strength, their courage, and their dedication to principle, despite the entreaties.”  Gag me with a spoon!

The so-called “skinny repeal”, which was aimed at repealing the aspects of Obamacare that all factions of the conference agreed upon while leaving large portions intact — was a last-ditch effort by leadership hoping to use the bill as a vehicle to conference with the lower chamber.  Despite McConnell having long been lauded as being some sort of a legislative wizard, his powers of persuasion fell far short with this trio of his fellow RINOs, all of whom have been quite vocal about their issues with the process and bill text.  And sadly we’re saddled with both Collins and Murkowski until 2020 upon which time we will hopefully be able to get rid of both of them, McCain we will likely be losing before the end of the year, which still provides him with more than enough time to wreak much more havoc in his effort to cause trouble for President Trump.  McCain is another one of those who would rather side with Democrats than see Trump achieve any level of success.

It became evident around midnight, as the vote continued to be delayed, that leadership was struggling to convince hesitant members to get onboard.  While an increasingly-frustrated looking McConnell and Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn, another RINO, huddled on the floor, Vice President Mike Pence partook in a lengthy discussion with McCain on the chamber floor in an attempt to coax the Arizona RINO to vote for the measure.  And while this may sound cold to some, hopefully at some point in the not too distant future the governor of Arizona will have the opportunity to appointment a replacement for McCain, one who will be more of a conservative and less of a RINO than McCain has been for some time now.  It’s too bad that such an opportunity had not yet presented itself.  McCain and his trusty sidekick from South Carolina, Lindsey Graham, have long been more of a roadblock to President Trump than they ever were for now ex-president Obummer.

Anyway, following its failure, McConnell expressed his disappointment on their failure to deliver on one of their top campaign promises.  Disappointment?  How does this vote in any way impact his ability to get quality and affordable health coverage?  In no way at all.  McConnell said, “From skyrocketing costs to plummeting choices and collapsing markets, our constituents have suffered through an awful lot under Obamacare. We thought they deserved better.”  And he went on to say, “It’s why I, and many of my colleagues, did as we promised and voted to repeal this failed law. We told our constituents we would vote that way. When the moment came, most of us did. We kept our commitments.”  ‘RINO’ McCain, who flew in from Arizona after being diagnosed with an aggressive form of brain cancer earlier this week — told reporters, “I thought it was the right vote,” while exiting the Capitol.

And while I agree, to a certain extent, that electing Republicans to a majority in the House, then a majority in the Senate, and then the White House has not produced the outcome we had hoped for, I place a majority of the blame for this fiasco on RINOs like McCain who effectively stabbed every former supporter in the back as he again proved why he’s the Democrat’s favorite Republican.  This is just another example of the treachery committed by RINOs in ‘The Swamp’.  This should not be about Trump, which is what the RINOs and their Democrat friends are desperate to make it about.  What it needs to be about is the working middle class which can no longer afford healthcare and who are essentially being held hostage by the insurance companies and states that have only one insurance provider.  Obamacare has relied on government subsidies to make up for losses incurred by insurance companies, $669 Billion in 2016 alone. It’s not self-supporting.

All of these pathetic RINOs are nothing more than #NeverTrumpsters who clandestinely opposed the candidate of their party in favor of Hitlery.  And make no mistake, there are more than a few #NeverTrumpsters in Congress and oddly enough they have come to believe that their sole purpose is to bring to a screeching halt anything that President Trump wants to accomplish, including the Republican promised “repeal and replace”, which, as it turns out, was for seven long years nothing more than a scam to get votes.  And frankly, I find it rather sad that they seem to hate President Trump more than they love America and that they seem to care very little about their constituents.  Letting Obamacare implode on its own is nothing short of criminal, as  it punishes the working and middle classes the most.  Two groups that the RINOs hate for no other reason than because they chose to support Trump over Hitlery, the candidate they favored.

Sadly, the current crop of Republican leaders seem totally incapable of governing.  They are ‘SUPPOSED’ to be the party of smaller government.  And as such they are supposed to view the government as being the problem and never part of the solution.  They would NEVER even attempt to pass a healthcare bill because their ideology tells them that the government should not have any role in healthcare, it should be something handled entirely by the private sector.  However, this has not been the approach of our current governing party.  What this country needs in order to get headed back in to right direction is strong conservative leadership from those who are not afraid to be called ‘conservative’.  Democrats/Liberals/Progressives or whatever they may wish to call themselves must be relegated to permanent minority status and never again be allowed to achieve numbers that would allow them to gain any significant amount of political power.

Both McConnell in the Senate and Ryan in the House publicly act as if they are supporting President Trump, but behind the scenes they have both been working to undermine him practically since the day he threw his hat into the ring.  They both have spent far too many years up to their necks in ‘The Swamp’ and long ago ceased being part of any solution that would get this country back on the right track.  And I can’t be the only one who has ever wondered why it is that there is never a Democrat who dares to break ranks with his, or her, party on crucial votes, but we can always count on there being more than a few of these RINOs who are willing to stick a knife into the back of their president.  RINOs like McCain, Murkowski, and Collins deserve the Arlen Specter award for treachery.  Perhaps they could follow his example by switching parties and then dying.  But then, I suppose that’s just too much to wish for.

President Trump is a street fighter, and that was exactly what was needed in order to beat the corrupt Democrat machine, and it’s STILL what’s needed to clean house in our corrupt government.  You can’t hire a Boy Scout to deal with a John Gotti.  You gotta get someone that CAN deal with a John Gotti.  And Trump is no less honorable than the people calling him dishonorable, and those who insist upon trying to use prior administrations as a gage for his, are wasting their time.  President Trump is honest enough to let people know what he’s thinking, compared to those professional politicians who stick to messages scripted by focus-group analytics and advisors.  Trump supporters get it, those that have decided to hate Trump whatever he does either don’t get it or don’t want to get it.  I could do some complaining about Trump, but I wouldn’t do it while others are senselessly attacking him from every direction, and for the most inane reasons imaginable.

So far, I haven’t seen President Trump do anything that’s particularly worthy of negative criticism.  The economy’s doing reasonably well, the U.S. hasn’t experienced the refugee/terrorist nonsense that’s plaguing Europe, illegal immigration is WAY down, and there are other things which are genuine accomplishments, such as exposing those in the state-controlled media as frauds, exposing Democrats as frauds and criminals, and now exposing Republicans as being nothing but Democrat enablers, allowing themselves to be willingly pushed around by a party that has control of absolutely NOTHING.  The FACT is that the sort of “honorable,” polite person you’re thinking of would have accomplished NONE of that, and we’d still be totally ignorant about the criminal conduct of the “intelligence community” and the FBI which is now only slowly coming to light.

And on a final note, I just want to say that no matter how pissed off I know we all are right now, at many of our Republican members of Congress, the last thing we should be contemplating, and I mean the VERY last thing, is doing anything that will result in allowing the Democrats to win even one seat in the 2018 midterm elections.  What we actually need, come 2018, is a conservative revolution.  We must never allow the Democrats, or their RINO colleagues, to convince us to surrender.  We must vote for those under the Republican banner, and if those we elect to Congress refuse to fight for us then we must also replace them with someone who will.  Democrats must NEVER again be allowed to achieve any level of political power.  That, no doubt, would bring about the end of this great nation, and that is simply not acceptable.  So put aside the anger and frustration and focus.  Focus on electing only those who will make the people, and the country the priority.  Not themselves.


RINOs 13

Well as we all know the Senate voted Wednesday afternoon against a proposal that would repeal major portions of Obamacare without a replacement legislation.  Senators voted 55-45 against the measure in a procedural vote Wednesday, which likely signals that a full, clean repeal that conservatives are pushing for could not pass the legislative body.  Seven RINOs were among those who voted against the measure: Sens. Shelley Moore Capito of West Virginia, Susan Collins of Maine, Dean Heller of Nevada, John McCain of Arizona, Rob Portman of Ohio, Lamar Alexander of Tennessee and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska.  Senators voted against a proposal to repeal and replace Obamacare Tuesday evening, called the Better Care Reconciliation Act (BCRA).  The measure failed to pass the procedural vote litmus test, garnering 57 no votes.  So once again these swamp creatures have done little more than to stick their boney fingers right into the eye of conservatives.  And laughed while doing do.

Let’s be honest, shall we, what has been made to happen to our ability to purchase affordable health insurance, is exactly what the Democrats wanted to have happen.  And if any Democrat claims otherwise, they’re lying.  Which we know is something that Democrats excel at.  Because it’s why they came up with this disaster in the first place and used every piece of political trickery available to them in their effort to get it to Obummer’s desk.  This scheme was specifically designed to bring about the Democrats highly sought single-payer healthcare system with the government in charge.  And then we have these disgustingly dishonest RINOs who are only too happy to join forces with their Democrat colleagues to help them accomplish that very thing.  We, as voters, should never vote in such a way that results in more Democrats being able to achieve positions of power.  Nor should we choose to stay home on Election Day, as that is the worst kind of negligence.

So, there are currently three proposals lawmakers are weighing: the Better Care Reconciliation Act, the bill that would institute a full, clean repeal of Obamacare without a replacement and a drastically watered down version of Obamacare repeal, called the “skinny repeal.”  Thus far, two have been shot down by senators.  The “skinny repeal” is believed to be the only way Republicans can pass a bill through the Senate to send to the House for final negotiations. The bill is likely to include a repeal of Obamacare’s individual mandate and the medical device tax — a feature that has a great deal of support in the medical lobbying industry and could help get Senate ‘leadership’ some much needed backing.  Senate ‘leadership’, if you wish to call it that, is desperate to get to 50 votes on some version of health care reform.  Our ‘leadership’ is telling wayward Republican senators that they need to pass a bill, literally any bill, so they can get to negotiations with the House.

I’m as frustrated as the next person regarding how we were first told Republicans needed the House. Then when they got that it was “they need the House ‘and’ the Senate.”  Then when they got that it was, nope, what they REALLY need is the White House.  But because even that too was not enough, the RINOS have now put the ball back into our court.  And since these seven are far from being the only RINOs that we’re forced to contend with, we must focus on making all of them extinct.  Because they are really nothing more than Democrats in disguise.  I’m sure they all had a good laugh at us when voting those many times to repeal Obamacare knowing that it was all for show.  The RINOs were more than willing to REPEAL when they knew Obummer would veto the bill, NOW when we have someone who WILL sign it, the RINOs cannot pass anything that President Trump wants.  This is angering Trump’s supporters and hopefully the RINOs will come to pay for it in the voting booth.

So call me naïve but I still believe the ONLY viable option that we have left when it comes to wrenching power away from these pathetically dishonest RINO’s is to replace as many of them as we can, not with Democrats but with the most conservative Republicans we can find.  Because we simply cannot allow them to grind us down.  And we must also focus on taking out as many Democrats as we can as well.  And if those we elect also choose not to follow through with promises made, then they too will be shown the door.  So this is likely to be a rather long and painful process, to the extent which that it may very well be left to our children to finish.  And if that’s the case then we must be determined in our efforts to ensure that they understand the importance of the task.  So either we’re going to be serious about this, or we’re not.  We need to follow the old adage, “When the going gets tough, the tough get going!”  Because things are going to get tougher before the get easier.

And we can’t be having multiple Republicans competing in the same contest, because that accomplishes nothing more than to provide an easy path to victory for the Democrat in the contest.  We can try to primary them out but the primary loser may choose to run anyway and then we still lose the seat.  Which the RINOs are always quite content to see happen.  And let’s not forget that the Democrats, since they have more seats up in 2018 than Republicans, still provide a target rich environment.  So we do it in stages by replacing Democrats with conservative Republicans in 2018, and sadly the only one on the “no” list up for re-election in 2018 is Heller.  While we may want “instant” results, we must come to realize that it will take years to fix what the Leftist took decades to break.  Hence, we do what the Leftists did as they took over the Democrat party…incrementally.  Just because we don’t like the Leftists doesn’t mean we can’t learn from their successful tactics.

Because these RINOs seem to believe the American voters have no other option than to vote for them, they feel emboldened to do whatever they please.  But in truth, if their actions have convinced us of anything it’s that just because one has an (R) after their name it doesn’t mean they can be trusted.  And they are obviously of the opinion that they can continue to tell us exactly what we want to hear and by doing so can keep getting elected over and over.   So it is going to incumbent upon us, the conservative voters, to become a bit more diligent when selecting who it is that’s to be the recipient of our increasingly important vote.  Look, no one should think that this is going to be an easy task.  ‘The Swamp” is proving to be very deep, very toxic and full of all manner of critters whose only purpose in life, or so it would seem, is to ward off those of us who wish to drain it.  But we must not allow ourselves to be deterred from doing what we all know needs to be done.

And while I am certainly no expert on the subject of health insurance, other than being someone who has got to use it, but it would seem to me that the solution is a relatively simple one, it’s only when politicians get involved that it becomes complex.  We need to simplify health insurance, increase competition among payers by opening up business over state lines to bring down costs, Medicaid block grants to the states; and people don’t need to be using insurance to cover sinus infection visits, same as you don’t use your car insurance to pay for oil changes or flat tires.  The answer is not “giving” people coverage for everything whether they want it or not.  And if you are one of those who chooses not to buy insurance and you get sick, tough luck.  Same as if you don’t insure your house and a tornado hits it.  But at the same time you should also not expect the rest of us to come rushing in to cover your expenses.  Because that ain’t gonna happen!

And I guess what I find the most annoying, and more than just a little disingenuous, is how I keep hearing about that millions of people will wind up ‘losing’ their health insurance if we actually succeed in repealing Obamacare.  But I can’t help wondering since when is having health insurance that you can’t afford to use, because of either exorbitant premiums or astronomical deductibles, the same as actually having affordable health insurance that you are able to use?  And those supporters of this disaster keep telling us how poll after poll shows that support is growing for Obamacare.  Really?  I can’t help wondering if these polls are being conducted by the very same folks who told us, all so confidently, that Hitlery was going to win the election in a landslide?  And too, we are constantly being told how people will die if Obamacare is repealed, but there’s never any mention of all those who died BEACAUSE of Obamacare, were their lives any less important?
