PJ Media, Dec. 10th, 2014: Can Republicans endure the wrath of voters if Texas Sen. Ted Cruz disrupts government operations this year like he did in 2013? Scott Ott thought not.
You’ve probably heard by now that Jeb Bush “…will actively explore the possibility of running for President of the United States.”
Long Island Woman Receives $1.12 Million For False Prosecution
A Long Island federal jury rewarded Nancy Genovese, 58, a mother of three, $1.12 million in compensatory damages after being arrested in 2009 for attempting to photograph a helicopter at a Air National Guard base in the Hamptons. Genovese intended to use the photo on a “Support the Troops” website; she was arrested for trespass and insulted as a “Teabagger.”
From The New York Post:
Southhampton cops searched her and found a legally owned rifle that she was transporting from a nearby rifle range. She contends a deputy sheriff arrived on the scene later and said to her, “I bet you are one of those Tea Party people.” When Genovese said she’s gone to Tea Party rallies, he allegedly said, “You’re a real right-winger, aren’t you?” and “You are a ‘Teabagger’” and then added that she’d be arrested for terrorism to make an example of other “right wingers.”

Note: There are issues on the forefront right now that may be much more significant to most people than this story: the CROmnibus, ISIS and President Obama’s lawless Executive Amnesty to name a few, but not to worry, I’ll be back at them soon – Just taking a few days away from them trying to calm down a little – ADB.
Gohmert: Leadership Wouldn’t Work With Conservatives on Cromnibus
Representative Louie Gohmert (R-TX) said that conservatives in the House heard “not one word” from House GOP leadership on compromises to make changes to the cromnibus in order to get conservatives to vote for it even though “we were willing to work with them to compromise” on Thursday’s “Hannity” on the Fox News Channel.

The following video clips are of several members of Congress questioning Obamacare architect and admitted liar, Dr. Jonathan Gruber, and Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Administrator the
honorable arrogant Marilyn Tavenner during a hearing of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee on December 9th. I could write several pages of commentary, but the videos, which are just a small sampling of the questioners, speak for themselves.
“…so get over this damn glibness?” Rep. Cynthia Lummis finishes her questioning time at the health care hearing by talking about her husband, who died from a heart attack, and the problems they had with Obamacare.
Jeb Bush was interviewed on December 1st by The Wall Street Journal. He spoke about his possible (likely) run for president in 2016 and his possible strategy – It sounded like a tutorial for would be RINOs
On his December 2nd radio show, Levin spared few words about his sentiments about the newest Bush trying to continue the presidential dynasty. Listen to the above clip. Also referring to Jeb Bush, Levin was quoted in a recent article that appeared at the washingtonexaminer.com: “He’s very boring. He doesn’t elicit excitement and energy outside a very small circle of wealthy corporatists and GOP Beltway operatives. Time to move on.”
Schlafly: Don’t Let Republican Elitists Nominate Someone Like Jeb Bush
Author Phyllis Schlafly’s “A Choice Not an Echo” caused waves in 1964 by taking on the Republican ‘Kingmakers’ who seemed to ignore the needs of true conservatives. Fifty years later, she’s still a thorn in the Establishment’s side. This week, Schlafly released the 50th anniversary edition of her groundbreaking book (You can purchase it here.) She told Townhall why any candidate considering running for office in 2016 needs to read it.
Congratulations on your anniversary edition of “A Choice Not an Echo.” I know part of the reason you decided to do this anniversary edition was because it marked 50 years. But was the current political environment also a factor in your decision to release this new version?
“It was a major factor, because we have a two-party system in this country and I do believe we have to work within the Republican Party to get on the right track, since I really have no hope of getting the Democratic Party on the right track – and the Republican Party is still a fight between the Establishment, or the people we call the RINOS, (Republican in Name Only) and the grassroots. I want to activate the grassroots to realize they can be the dominant factor in the Republican Party and nominate a candidate for president who is our choice, such as the example of Ronald Reagan in 1980.” Continue reading at townhall.com.
You won’t need Common Core to solve this simple math problem:
(The number of people in this photo) minus (The number of people in this photo who are no longer in office) equals (The number of people who still need to go).
Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn) revealed on Saturday that Republican leadership, led by Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-Oh), has no intention of resisting President Obama’s executive amnesty that he ordered on Thursday.

Go Ted go, but we’re fighting an uphill battle on a treadmill – Especially with the House and Senate lead by Boehner and McConnell.

Senator Ted Cruz joined Megyn Kelly tonight to rail against President Obama‘s planned action on immigration. And Cruz argued Obama’s acting particularly despotic, not just because he’s taking executive action without the approval of Congress, but because he is flagrantly ignoring the message the American people sent in the midterm elections.
Cruz argued that the midterms were actually a “referendum on amnesty” and that Obama is discarding the will of the people and becoming an “unaccountable monarch.”
Cruz also pointed out that 1) Obama has said elections have consequences when they go his way, and 2) several Democrats who supported his immigration plan in the Senate were voted out. He again proposed that the Republican-held Senate should threaten to block every single Obama nominee if Obama attempts to act on his own.
From friend and GTP member Jim Sharp:
Tonight, I had the pleasure of interviewing Straw Man. Mr. Man has been the object of much criticism from President Obama and the Democratic Party. He’s been in hiding until recently, for his own safety. Now, vindicated by this latest election, he’s agreed to speak with me tonight.
ME: Good evening, Straw Man, and welcome.
You’ve endured numerous vitriolic assaults, over the years. From the classic “You want to throw granny over the cliff,” to “You want old people on social security to choose between heating and eating dog food.”
They say you don’t care about the environment; that you’re for “dirty air and dirty water.” And, of course, that you’re a “climate-change denier.”
Many say you want little children on welfare to starve. Then there’s your supposed “war on women,” your hatred for gays and minorities. And, of course, you hate puppies … the list goes on.
My question to you, sir, is how you do it? – How have you weathered these withering politics of personal destruction?
STRAW: Well, thank you, Serv. At first, I really let this stuff get to me. I got defensive – quiet and introverted. I went around mumbling to myself, asking myself, “How did it come to this?” How did someone like me – who wants everyone to live a good, productive life, to be a good citizen, to experience the blessings of liberty – come to be so misunderstood, even despised?
Nothing in my life prepared me for that. Finally, I started to realize – it’s not me, it’s THEM! THEY hate me for the very things I stand for. It’s their job to deconstruct my life. They were trying to make me feel bad. They wanted to get people to hate me. It’s a power grab. I learned not to take it personally.
Now, finally, other people are starting to see that too – my critics were SO over-the-top that people began to sympathize with me. They look in the mirror, and see me. My critics SO over-reached, and SO exposed themselves, that now I’m starting to feel safe to be seen again in public, even to speak out.
ME: You’ve been disavowed even by your supposed friends, the Republicans. Aren’t you afraid of being back-stabbed?
STRAW: I know, I know – the Republicans wouldn’t come out and defend me. Some did, here and there, but they certainly didn’t make a concerted effort. It’s not that they hate me; I think they were just afraid to say anything, for fear of being laughed at or criticized.
Some people tried to protect me – the Tea Party and such; conservatives, and some corporations. I appreciate that. But they were silenced, as much as possible, by the Obama Democrats. For some reason, his corporations were considered okay, but my corporations are “dark,” – not to be trusted.
Thing is, the Obama Democrats, they NEVER talk to me. They never even consider my real point of view! They couldn’t tell you what my real point of view is! They exaggerate and stereotype all my positions!
It’s what they have to do to make themselves feel special. Read more at the405media.com.
After all he’s said over the years, Obama would never do executive amnesty, now would he?
Watch Obama Make the Case Against Executive Amnesty
Who will protect the nation, if not us?
In this video clip from Tuesday’s The Kelly File, Congressman Trey Gowdy and Megyn Kelly weigh in on MIT professor and Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber’s remarks on the deceit used to pass the Affordable Care Act and what he refers to as the “stupidity” of the American public. After this latest scandal broke both Gruber and the White House tried to walk things back by saying that he was speaking off the cuff. Kelly refuted this argument by showing another video where Gruber also demonstrated his contempt for the “stupid” public. It kind of makes one wonder when the professor will run out of cuffs. Kelly then played a clip from December, 2009 where then senator, chairman of the Senate Finance Committee and strong Obamacare advocate Max Baucus referred to professor Gruber as a “credible and unbiased source.” It pains me to mention that professor, or should I say architect Gruber, was paid almost $400,000 by the White House (you and I) for his work on Obamacare.
Kelly brought on Congressman Trey Gowdy a Republican from South Carolina in the second half of the video. When asked his reaction to the Gruber affair he opened by saying: “I can’t get past the irony to get to the arrogance. The most ‘transparent’ administration since the continents shifted had to rely on artifice and deception to pass its signature piece of legislation. You can’t make that up. He had to lie to people, and then he justified it … So I can’t even get past the irony of that to get to the arrogance of him calling our fellow citizens stupid,” said Gowdy. He closed out his comments on this scandal by saying: “… So my fellow citizens have to keep in mind, fool me once, shame on you, ever fool me again, shame on us.”
Gowdy is chairman of the House Select Committee on Benghazi and Kelly did not miss this opportunity to ask him about the committee’s progress. He responded: “We have a very robust investigative plan that will kick off in December, and Megyn, I can tell you my goal was to have an investigation where witnesses who had never been talked to before felt comfortable coming forward because of the seriousness of our investigation and that is precisely what is happening. So it is not with a lot of fanfare, and there aren’t a lot of public hearings, but trust me when I tell you we are making tremendous progress.”
Look folks, we went into this with our eyes wide open (at least those of us who are still breathing). We all knew this was going to happen. But wouldn’t you rather be fighting an army of cry babies (Boehners) than an army of Harry Reids? So let’s get to work! – ADB
By Jeremy Peters, New York Times Nov. 8, 2014 (story below graphic):
WASHINGTON — As most Republicans were taking a victory lap the morning after the elections, a group of conservatives huddled anxiously in a conference room not far from Capitol Hill and agreed that now is the time for confrontation, not compromise and conciliation.
Despite Republicans’ ascension to Senate control and an expanded House majority, many conservatives from the party’s activist wing fear that congressional leaders are already being too timid with President Obama.
They do not want to hear that government shutdowns are off the table or that repealing the Affordable Care Act is impossible — two things Republican leaders have said in recent days. Read more at nytimes.com.
On the Mark Levin Show Thursday night, Levin spoke about the importance of the upcoming senatorial races because they will determine whether Harry Reid will remain as Majority Leader. He read a letter from Dr. Milton Wolf, the Reagan Conservative who was defeated by incumbent Pat Roberts in the Kansas primary.
In his letter Dr Wolf implored Kansans, and by extension all Americans, to vote Republican and to dethrone Harry Reid, so that the true Constitutional Conservatives in the Senate will have some real power. He then emphatically went on to say that after the elections, we must hold all Republicans’ feet to the fire and that he would be out in front leading this effort.
