Republican Surrender Fever

  • Posted by Judson Phillips on November 25, 2012 at 3:02pm in Tea Party Nation Forum

    Cowardice is a disease.  It is every contagious.  That is why the military treats cowardice so severely.  We are now seeing surrender fever in full force in Washington.

    What is going on?

    The Republican Party is in full surrender mode. 

    First it started with worthless RINO Saxby Chambliss announcing he was abandoning his pledge to the voters who put him in office that he would not raise taxes.  Now equally worthless RINO Lindsay Graham says he is abandoning the pledge too.

    He wants to limit deductions for people to $30,000 to $40,000.  This would primarily hit upper earners.  Graham is almost orgasmic at the possibility this could raise $1 trillion dollars.

    Isn’t that wonderful.  The Republican want to give the government another trillion dollars of tax dollars to waste.

    Here is the obvious question.  When the hell is the government going to cut spending?

    The deficit was almost under control in 2007.  It was shrinking and was down to $163 billion for the year.  Now we blow that in a month.

    Every year watchdogs identify hundreds of billions of dollars in waste, fraud and duplicated services.  Every year politicians hold news conferences to denounce the waste.  Yet they never do a damn thing about the waste.

    Now surrender fever is racing through the Republican ranks in DC. 

    The Republicans are doing just what the Democrats want.  They are giving them cover.  Republicans are going along with the Democrat tax hikes.  So what are they going to say in 2014 as the Great Obama Depression worsens?

    Are the Republicans going to hit the Democrats on taxing, spending and borrowing?  How are they going to do that when they are going along with the Democrat plans?

    John Boehner is already negotiating his surrender in the House of Representatives.    He has already bought into bovine scatology that the problem is a revenue problem.  It is not a revenue problem. We have a spending problem. 

    As the Republicans cave, what are fiscal conservatives to do?

    We have some fiscal conservatives left, but they are outnumbered.  John Boehner has made sure that no fiscal conservative is in the top rank of the Republican leadership.   Republicans could threaten to filibuster in the Senate but now they are seeing so many Republicans caving on the issue a filibuster would not matter.

    Mitt Romney ran for President and was the first Republican since before Ronald Reagan to run without specifically calling for tax cuts.  Now the Republican Establishment has followed his lead. 

    Now we are watching the Republican Party not only surrender but self-destruct.

    Why should fiscal conservatives continue to support a party that is abandoning its principles and simply becoming one of two big government parties? 

    We in the Tea Party did not go into the streets in 2009 and put a Republican majority in the House just so they could be big government statists. 

    If the Republican Party wants to be a big government statist party, then to paraphrase Ronald Reagan, “I’m not leaving the Republican Party.  The Republican Party is leaving me.”

    Hating America, even on Thanksgiving

  • Posted by Judson Phillips on November 22, 2012 at 4:56pm in Tea Party Nation Forum
  •  

    You know the left hates America.  Many on the hard left hate any Americans that dare to disagree with them.  They hate those who love this nation and believe that America is a great nation.

    The hard left cannot even accept something as simple as Thanksgiving.

    From CNS News:

    Forget all that turkey, stuffing and pumpkin pie, today should be a day of fasting and atonement for American “sin.” That’s according to Robert Jensen, a journalism professor at the University of Texas at Austin. Jensen, known for his hard-left politics, also calls Thanksgiving a “white-supremacist holiday.”

    Jensen’s opinion piece “No Thanks for Thanksgiving,” appeared on the far-left, Soros-connected website Alternet on Thanksgiving eve. In it, he wrote how Native Americans suffered because of the “European invasion of the Americas.” He went on to compare the Founding Fathers to Nazi Germany. “How does a country deal with the fact that some of its most revered historical figures had certain moral values and political views virtually identical to Nazis?” he asked.

    According to Jensen, Thanksgiving is “at the heart of U.S. myth-building. “But in the United States, this reluctance to acknowledge our original sin — the genocide of indigenous people — is of special importance today,” he explained.

    Jensen has a long career in both working journalism and academia, including work as a copy editor at The St. Paul Pioneer Press and the St. Petersburg Times, as well as “volunteer editing and writing for the Texas Triangle, Austin (weekly statewide lesbian/gay paper).”

    This wasn’t the first time Jensen has bashed America. He does so on a regular basis. Other Alternet pieces include headlines like “The Painful Collapse of Empire: How the ‘American Dream’ and American Exceptionalism Wreck Havoc on the World” or “What White People Fear.”

    I am sick of these hard-core leftists.  If you Professor Jensen, do not like America, then get the hell out.  There are a lot of third world hellholes that embrace the philosophy this clown loves.

    The other issue is why taxpayers have to support idiots like Jensen.  Unfortunately many universities have become little more than full employment systems for leftists.  All a leftist has to do is get a tenure track position then they can go off and say any outrageous thing about America or real Americans.

    If someone like Jensen wants to run his mouth, he has the right to.  The taxpayers do not have to pay his salary.

    Obama Immigrant Welfare Welcome Mat Sparks Outrage

    By Dave Wedge

    Local lawmakers are fuming over an Obama administration policy promoting welfare and EBT benefits for immigrants, with a “welcome” package and promotional website that encourage new arrivals to take advantage of the nation’s generous government largesse.

    “I think it’s a complete outrage that we’re encouraging people coming here to get on public assistance,” said state Rep. Shaunna O’Connell, a Taunton Republican who has fought for EBT reform. “We should be encouraging people to be self-sufficient. These programs are rampant with fraud and abuse.”

    NYT Once Again Unaware of Terrorists in Gaza

    By Washington Free Beacon Staff | November 19, 2012 8:02 pm

    The New York Times once again appears to be unaware of the presence of terrorists in the Gaza Strip. In a new report on developments in the latest round of Israel-Hamas violence, the Times says:

    On Sunday, Israeli forces attacked two buildings housing local broadcasters and production companies used by foreign outlets. Israeli officials denied targeting journalists, but on Monday Israeli forces again blasted the Al Sharouk block, a multiuse building where many local broadcasters, as well as Sky News of Britain and the channel Al Arabiya, had offices.

    That attack, which struck a computer shop on the third floor, sparked a blaze that sent plumes of dark smoke creeping up the sides of the building. Video footage showed clouds of smoke billowing.

    The Times leaves out the story’s single most relevant piece of information: Four senior Islamic Jihad terrorists were using the media building as a hideout. They were killed in the Israeli strike.

    AP Reporter Demands Answers From State Department Spokeswoman

    AP Reporter Demands Answers From State Department Spokeswoman on Administration’s Handling of the Israel-Gaza Conflict: “You’re Staying Silent While People Are Dying”

     

    In a rare exchange at the State Department yesterday, Associated Press reporter Matthew Lee pushed State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland on the agency’s approach to handling the Israel-Gaza conflict.

    Lee questioned Nuland, “You say that it would not be helpful for you to discuss any of your conversations, that quiet diplomacy is the way to deescalate that. Well, you’ve been doing your quiet diplomacy now for almost a week. How’s is going so far?”

    Nuland began to respond “we are working hard…” but Lee interjected, “Hasn’t it occurred to anybody that maybe being less quiet might get more results? You know, squeaky wheel gets grease, that kind of thing. (Nuland begins to speak, but is interrupted again) You’re staying silent while people are dying, left and right.”

    “Matt, we are being far from silent. The president…” she attempted once more. Lee pressed, “You’re not telling us anything about what you’re … When the Turks come out, when the leaders of Turkey come out and say that Israel is engaged in acts of terrorism, and you refuse to say that you don’t agree with that, or maybe you do agree with it, that’s being silent.”

    Divorce Agreement

    Subject: USA divorce agreement

    Since
    we are not going to get gasoline back to $1.50 per gallon and coffee to $2.00 per pound maybe this would be a solution we could live with.

    DIVORCE AGREEMENT — This is so incredibly well-put, and I can hardly believe it’s by a young person, a student!! Whatever he runs for, I’ll vote for him!

    Dear American liberals, leftists, social progressives, socialists, regressive, Marxists, and Obama supporters, et. al.:

    We have stuck together since the late 1950s for the sake of the kids, but the whole of this latest election process has made me realize that I want a divorce. I know we tolerated each other for many years for the sake of future generations, but sadly, this relationship has clearly run its course. 

    Our two ideological sides of America cannot and will not ever agree on what is right for us all, so let’s just end it on friendly terms. We can smile and chalk it up to irreconcilable differences and go our own way.

    Here is a model separation agreement:

    1. Our two groups can equitably divide up the country by land mass, each taking a similar portion. That will be the difficult part, but I am sure our two sides can come to a friendly agreement. After that, it should be relatively easy. Our respective representatives can effortlessly divide other assets since both sides had such distinct and disparate tastes.

    2. We don’t like redistributive taxes, so you can keep them.

    3. You are welcome to the liberal judges and the ACLU.

    4. Since you hate guns and war, we’ll take our firearms, the cops, the NRA, and the military.

    5. We’ll take the nasty, smelly oil industry and you can go with wind, solar, and bio-diesel.

    6. You can keep Oprah, Michael Moore, and Rosie O’Donnell. You are, however, responsible for finding a bio-diesel vehicle big enough to move all three of them.

    7. We’ll keep capitalism, greedy corporations, pharmaceutical companies, Wal-Mart, and Wall Street.

    8. You can have your beloved lifelong welfare dwellers, food stamps, homeless home boys, hippies, druggies, and illegal aliens.

    9. We’ll keep the hot Alaskan hockey moms, greedy CEO’s and rednecks.

    10. We’ll keep the Bibles and give you NBC and Hollywood .

    11. You can make peace with Iran and Palestine and we’ll retain the right to invade and hammer places that threaten us.

    12. You can have the peace-niks and war protesters. When our allies or our way of life are under assault, we’ll help provide them security.

    13. We’ll keep our Judeo-Christian values.

    14. You are welcome to Islam, Scientology, Humanism, political correctness, and Shirley McLaine. You can also have the U.N., but we will no longer be paying the bill.

    15. We’ll keep the SUV’s, pickup trucks, and oversized luxury cars. You can take every Subaru station wagon you can find.

    16. You can give everyone healthcare if you can find any practicing doctors..

    17. We’ll continue to believe healthcare is an earned luxury and not a right.

    18. We’ll keep “The Battle Hymn of the Republic” and “The
    National Anthem.”

    19. I’m sure you’ll be happy to substitute “Imagine”, “I’d Like
    to Teach the World to Sing”, “Kum Ba Ya,” or “We Are the
    World”.

    20. We’ll practice trickle down economics and you can continue to give trickle up poverty your best shot.

    21. Since it often so offends you, we’ll keep our history, our name and our constitution and our flag.

    22. Would you agree to this? If so, please pass it along to other like-minded liberal and conservative patriots and if you do not agree, just hit delete. In the spirit of friendly parting, I’ll bet you answer which one of us will need whose help in 15 years.

    Sincerely,
    John J. Wall
    Law Student and an American

    P.S.: Also, please take Ted Turner, Sean Penn, Martin Sheen, Barbara Streisand,
    Jane Fonda, George Clooney, Jesse Jackson, Rosanne Barr and Whoopi Goldberg with you. You can start your own Congress with Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, Barbara Boxer, Diane Feinstein, Al Franken, Maxine Waters, and Barney Frank.

    You can have Obama to head your Socialist
    government and anoint him with the title “Dearest Leader”.

    P.S.S..: And you won’t have to “Press 1 for English” when you call
    our country.  Forward this every time you get it! Let’s keep this going; maybe some of it will start sinking in!

    **If you can’t stand behind our Military, Please feel free to
    stand in front of them! **

    Could we add Joy Behar to the list to go with Whoopi, although I would be willing to keep Whoopi in exchange for Joy!

    Thoughts on Politics and recent election

    To the Republicans:

    I hear many people say that now the Republican party should compromise their views by moving to the middle or the left;  to accept abortion and paying for free contraception;  to accept tax increases and estate taxes ; to accept the amnesty of millions of illegal immigrants.    There are many more examples but here is what I have to say about this:

    IF the Republicans become like the Liberals then there would not be any reason to vote for them.  If they compromise their beliefs and values then they do not have any beliefs and values. 

     


    The vast majority of the Jewish voters in this country voted for Hussein Obama – the candidate least likely to support Israel, and most likely to hurt Israel instead of helping them.   You folks need to sit down and shut up you will get what you deserve.


    And Christians, so-called strong faithful Christians you folks say you believe in the 10 commandments and “Thou Shalt NOT Kill” and yet you vote for the party (man) who supports abortion and free abortions at that.   They believe in late term abortions where the baby is actually born alive but is held in the womb and has it’s brains sucked out – this is murder people!

    By the way this IS a Christian nation, I don’t care what you Liberals say.    You vote to take God out of your platform then go to church on Sunday.    Stop pretending and just stay home on Sunday.
