Here We Go Again!

As I return to publishing observations here, the nation sees itself on the brink of yet another presidential campaign. November 2016 will be here before you know it!…

We have 3 Republicans, Sen. Rand Paul (KY), Sen. Marco Rubio (FL), and Sen. Ted Cruz (TX) up against former Secretary of State and Democrat New York senator, Hillary Clinton.

The themes and memes are already underway in attempts to set the narrative. True to form, the Democrats have trotted out some of their worthless, tasteless voices to express insipid opinions on the Republican field. These quotes are definitely worth retaining as the campaigns move forward…

“Like most other major Republicans his (Rand Paul) views are outdated and way outside the mainstream.."

The walking cadaver and former Senator majority leader from Nevada uttered that description as he recovers from what he expects everyone to believe was an injury from an exercise machine…Right..Harry….right….

“His policy on Cuba is very much in the past. … [He’s] yesterday when it comes to Cuba and international relations.”

The former House majority leader, Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) comments to Katie Couric on the candidacy of Marco Rubio… As you might recall, Pelosi proudly proclaimed Obamacare had to be passed into law before we could find out what was in it! To this day, she retains the crown as the most lame brain woman in Congress!

Things are just getting underway. That being said, I detect a hint of concern on the part of the Democrats. They’re realizing the lies they’ve told for decades are losing their political value..fast!

‘Washington’ Seems to be missing the point!…

The ONLY point they can understand..and the ONLY one that counts!

Cruz Explains the Game…

Now that the media assault and hysteria has died down concerning Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and his attempts to wake up the American people to the dangers of ‘Obamacare’, we take a look at the absurdity of procedure in the United States Senate. This is courtesy of an interview on Rush Limbaugh’s radio show shortly after Cruz ended his marathon session. He points out how the members manage to convince their constituents of one thing when they’re actually doing another. Of course, with the ‘walking dead’, Harry Reid, running the show, it’s a wonder anything is accomplished at all!

"There's no need for conversations.."

“There’s no need for conversations..”

"The central issue, I think, is the long-standing problem we have had with Washington not listening to the American people with Democrats and Republicans.  It's a lot of folks who've been in office way too long, who stopped listening to their constituents -- and, as a result, we see lots of theater, lots of empty symbolic votes and very little willingness to actually stand up and fight on behalf of the American people..."

“The central issue, I think, is the long-standing problem we have had with Washington not listening to the American people.. with Democrats and Republicans. It’s a lot of folks who’ve been in office way too long, who stopped listening to their constituents — and, as a result, we see lots of theater, lots of empty symbolic votes and very little willingness to actually stand up and fight on behalf of the American people…”

Here’s a portion of his conversation with Limbaugh….

CRUZ:  And, listen, what I tried to spend much of the filibuster all but begging the media to do… In fact, I explicitly said, “Listen. All right, you guys can’t resist writing something about the process, something about that silliness. But let me just ask you: 50% of what you write, discuss the substance of how Obamacare is the number one job killer in the country, how millions of Americans are suffering, how it’s forcing people into part-time work, how it’s threatening millions of Americans’ health insurance.

“Just write a little about the substance,” and the strategy on the other side is really twofold.  Number one: Confuse the voters. Confuse the voters with procedural obfuscation, with complexity, so that they don’t understand what’s going on.  And number two: Make it all about personalities. And, listen, others can engage in that game, Rush. I have no intention of defending myself or of reciprocating.  It’s not about anybody. It’s not about us. It is about listening to the American people and stopping this disaster, this nightmare, this train wreck that is Obamacare.

CRUZ:  Rush, I think you are absolutely right.  And to be honest, look, I think what Mike and I are doing, I don’t view as a terribly big deal.  We’re trying to actually stand for the principles that every Republican in the Senate says he or she believes in.  We’re trying to actually listen to the American people, and we’re trying to tell the truth.  Part of why — you know, people ask, why does Congress have, you know, 10, 12, 15% approval rating?  It’s because for years Congress has ignored the will of the American people.  And this process — I think it’s important for your listeners to understand how this process is gonna play out this next week, because much of what the Senate does is engage in show votes that are designed to look one way to the voters and, in fact, be like World Wrestling Federation, entirely fixed.

So what’s gonna happen next is on Friday or Saturday we’re gonna have a vote on what’s called cloture on the bill.  That is the vote that matters.  It takes 60 votes to grant cloture.  What cloture is is cutting off debate, saying there should be no more debate.  And the reason that matters is if Harry Reid gets 60 votes to cut off debate to get cloture on the bill, he will then file one amendment, he said only one amendment, that guts the House continuing resolution, and that fully funds Obamacare.  And so any Republican in my view who votes for cloture, who votes with Harry Reid, who votes with the Democrats to cut off debate and give Harry Reid the ability to fund Obamacare fully on a 51-vote partisan vote of only Democrats, is voting to fund Obamacare.

Now, a number of Republicans are going to maintain that, no, no, no, no, no, their vote to cut off debate is in support of the House bill.  And, Rush, that’s simply not the case.  It’s a show vote.  Now, if Harry Reid gets 60 votes, every Republican then will vote against his amendment to fund Obamacare, and so all 46 Republicans want to go home to their districts and say, “Gosh, I voted to defund Obamacare, and marvel of marvels, we lost,” which to be honest is the outcome that I think more than a few of them affirmatively desire.  And part of what’s so problematic with Washington is how many Republicans want a show vote to pretend to their constituents they’re fighting for what they say they’re fighting for, rather than actually fighting for it and actually winning. “….

The frustration continues as we deal with a government that is willing to actually LISTEN to its citizens less and less and less.. In the meantime, those that actually have the GUTS to speak up are demeaned, derided, and dismissed. You saw a perfect example in Sen. Cruz’s efforts this week. It’s your choice, folks….

You KNOW he’s right!

 

 

"This legislation is a piece of crap, AND YOU KNOW IT!!"

“This legislation is a piece of crap, AND YOU KNOW IT!!”

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) is literally leading the fight against the unmitigated DISASTER that is ‘Obamacare’! No matter what you think of him, his tactics, his policies…YOU KNOW HE’S RIGHT! The so called “Affordable Care Act” is anything but! And few Republicans have the spine to stand up against this piece of garbage which has been shoved down the throat of Americans. As for the Democrats, not a one of them has the guts to speak out against a costly, confusing, complex, and destructive law which will do more damage than it will offer in benefits. The sad, undeniable truth is if you asked Americans about this law, 9 out of 10 of them would have no clue as to its ramifications, costs, and how it will affect them. THAT in itself should sound the alarm for the nation to wake up!!!

 

Obamacare

What they’re REALLY thinking!

 

 

 

Yes, dear readers….It’s time, once again, for the latest in the continuing saga…WHAT THEY’RE REALLY THINKING!

Now, as you all know, most of those in political public life rarely, if ever have the guts to speak the truth or let their TRUE feelings on issues come to light. They dance around the topic, lending vague lip service to whatever it may be. While, all along, those of us who KNOW their true intentions have no problem deciphering who the deceivers and the liars are…

Now!…On with the show!….

 

 

e81bcfc5-27ab-4d91-9b0c-edd36fc74fe6

 

This one is pretty self-explanatory…With the Benghazi hearings set to take place in Congress, we all KNOW the Obama administration f**ked up royally! It’s been noted that there are two..and ONLY two possible scenarios…the administration was either totally clueless and inept…or they refused to acknowledge the failure the seriousness of the situation, especially following the DEATH of a U.S. ambassador, because it was not politically expedient for the Obama re-election campaign at the time.. Correction on those choices: the third scenario was a BOTH of the above….

 

"I got it made..as long as I keep embarrassing myself on the floor of the House.."

“I got it made..as long as I keep embarrassing myself on the floor of the House..”

The ever imbecilic Rep. Sheila Jackson-Lee (D-TX) continues her parade of stupidity in the House of Representatives…The latest: claiming a right to healthcare should be a constitutional right…..Man! You people in Texas: How do you put up with this garbage?

 

'That damned Ted Cruz is making me and the rest of the Democratic senators look like the idiots we are...he has the gall to actually believe what he says...I'll fix his ass..."

‘That damned Ted Cruz is making me and the rest of the Democratic senators look like the idiots we are…he has the gall to actually believe what he says…I’ll fix his ass…”

Limp di**ed Senate majority leader, Harry Reid (D-NV) resorts to referring to the Texas senator as a “schoolyard bully”…Yet another textbook example of the majority leader’s inability to win in the arena of ideas..it further reinforces his legacy as one of the biggest do-nothings in the Senate….

 

schumer1

Now that commercials have begun on the radio promoting Sen. Schumer…er…I mean Sen. Rubio’s immigration plan, the senator from New York doesn’t appreciate the idea that some are beginning to question the wisdom in adding to the burden of the national entitlement programs with the addition of millions of new dependents…not to mention millions of new Democratic voters…

 

"I'm sorry...WHO did you say won?.."

“I’m sorry…WHO did you say won?..”

Comedy Central’s media jester, Stephen Colbert, likely thought his sister would coast to an easy victory in the South Carolina congressional race…Instead, the voters returned the one time embattled Republican governor, Mark Sanford, to public office…Of course, if he’d been a Democrat, the praise would have been heaped on him by the media from the start…

 

"You people have no idea what I am capable of..."

“You people have no idea what I am capable of…”

 

Probably one of the world’ most dangerous men, financier and political operative, George Soros, just enhanced his holdings with a $19 million profit betting on a Fed rate cut…

 

 

"Hmmm..let's see...what's next?..so far I've managed to disconnect myself from healthcare, the middle east, gun control, the debt, jobs, and a bunch of other sh*t....gotta stay on top of it...I can't afford to becoming attached to the problems.....maybe we can throw another White House party or something...."

“Hmmm..let’s see…what’s next?..so far I’ve managed to disconnect myself from healthcare, the middle east, gun control, the debt, jobs, and a bunch of other sh*t….gotta stay on top of it…I can’t afford to becoming attached to the problems…..maybe we can throw another White House party or something….”

Finally…a continuing theme here…President Obama still manages to offer any concrete, REAL solutions to the nation’s ills while blaming those that do FOR the problem…No President has managed to convince so many while doing so little….

 

Invalidity…

 

Why-Im-conservative

 

No doubt you’ve noticed, in the midst of political discourse, how the opposition to sensible thought often engages in sensationalism and the use of outlandish remarks in a hapless attempt to further their argument. Therein lies further proof at the complete and utter nonsense in their assertion. It leaves you thinking…..what????!!!

This weekend saw more examples……

 

Unfortunately, you've grown up hearing voices that incessantly warn of government as nothing more than some separate, sinister entity that's at the root of all our problems. Some of these same voices also do their best to gum up the works. They'll warn that tyranny always lurking just around the corner. You should reject these voices. Because what they suggest is that our brave, and creative, and unique experiment in self-rule is somehow just a sham with which we can't be trusted."

President Barack Obama speaking to graduates at Ohio State University…

What our foolish and contemptuous President FAILS to realize is that tyranny is “lurking around the corner” when a government gradually diminishes the rights of the individual. All the while trying to placate the citizens with language meant to convey the message that it is just “the right thing to do”…or “for the good of everyone”. Mr. Obama fails miserably when it comes to understanding the American heritage and the founding of this nation. He makes that perfectly clear each and every day he is in office. It is the individuals we have in government that are the threat to our “unique experiment in self-rule.” Barack Obama, the Democrats, and an increasing number of Republicans have given us no reason to doubt that suspicion.

 

 

"I don't think he (Ted Cruz) should be defined as Hispanic"

“I don’t think he (Ted Cruz) should be defined as Hispanic”

 

Bill Richardson, the “disgraced” former governor of New Mexico (D) speaking on the Texas senator. What this idiot doesn’t grasp is Senator Cruz probably doesn’t “DEFINE” himself as anything..but an American. I guess Cuban heritage doesn’t qualify as Hispanic…at least according to the governor. Gov. Richardson only applies that term to those in a border state with Mexico. THAT is how HE defines those individuals. And, as is quite often the case with those in this school of though, THAT is all that matters. It’s the continued, shameless effort to categorize people to the best political advantage. You’re pathetic, governor.

 

“In about 18 months from now, hopefully he’ll have sent Nikki Haley back to wherever the hell she came from..."

“In about 18 months from now, hopefully he’ll have sent Nikki Haley back to wherever the hell she came from…”

 

Moronic South Carolina Democratic chair, Dick Harpootlian, on Vincent Sheehan and his attempt to unseat Governor Nikki Haley (R) in 2014…WHAT a total nincompoop! As Republican strategist, Brad Dayspring tweeted:

“Imagine if a top Republican told a minority Dem woman Guv to ‘go back to wherever the hell she came from.’”

Indeed!……

 

It doesn’t take a lot to figure out the tactics employed here. These types of examples can be found every single day. Liberal thought is NOT what it’s labeled. It’s pure stupidity run amok! There’s nothing ‘liberal’ about this type of argument..if you can call it that. They don’t HAVE an argument! This is nothing more than feeble attempts to combat facts with stupidity! Unfortunately, we’ve become a nation which seems to focus on the pointless and the outlandish. There’s no longer any maturity in dealing with reality and the problems we all face day in and day out.

We awarded Barack Obama and this notion with four more years in 2012. We are not going to see REAL change and REAL solutions until we place someone in office with the integrity and the guts to call out this sort of childish, ineptitude for what it is. And I’m afraid I don’t see many with the ability to do that on the political landscape.
