Thank You Again, Congessman Yoho

November 21, 2014 by  
Filed under Uncategorized

As we rapidly devolve from a republic which values individual liberties to a dictatorship we still have heroes in Washington willing to fight against the demise of our country by defending and upholding our Constitution. We are fortunate that our Congressman, Ted Yoho, is one of those heroes. Please email or send a Facebook message thanking him for standing firm and confirming your support for his action, the Executive Amnesty Prevention Act. Thank you, Congressman Yoho.

From Sunshine State News:

“U.S. Rep. Ted Yoho, R-Fla., offered a bill on Thursday to prevent President Barack Obama from using an executive order to allow illegals a path to stay in the nation. Yoho insisted Obama was overstepping what the executive branch can do and hopes his “Executive Amnesty Prevention Act” will cut him off at the pass.

“Article I, Section 8, Clause 4 gives Congress the ‘power to establish a uniform rule of naturalization,’ while Article II, Section 3 lays out clearly that the ‘the president shall take care that the laws be faithfully executed,’” Yoho noted about the Constitution. “With the go-it-alone approach of the president on immigration, I felt it necessary to introduce this bill and stop the president from going around Congress and the American people. An executive ‘fix’ of the law is unconstitutional, temporary, and will establish a very dangerous precedent.”

“Yes, the president has prosecutorial discretion – in certain cases – but that does not mean he has the authority to provide blanket amnesty or pardons to 5 million illegal aliens,”

Obama: Kneel Before Zod – Obama’s Amnesty Speech

The following article by Ben Shapiro was posted on Breitbart.com last night shortly after president Obama’s official announcement of his constitutional power grab (executive amnesty speech).  I read it with my jaw wide open most of the time as I realized that I had some of the same thoughts that Mr. Shapiro expressed while I was watching the speech.  I said some of the same thoughts, not all; this young man Shapiro is literally brilliant, and he definitely knows how to say what’s on his mind.

This article is not the shortest chapter in the book, but you’ve got to read it.  And let me know what you think (comment) if you’re so inclined. Thanks.

On Thursday night, President Obama delivered his address to the nation on his executive amnesty. It was historic, both in its scope and in its dishonesty: the speech represented a closely-woven and incredible tapestry of falsehood, exposited with a straight face by the greatest liar in modern American history. To those versed in immigration and constitutional law, watching Obama lay out his program felt like watching a madman describe, with preternaturally perfect sincerity, how the moon was constructed of cheese: you know the argument is untrue, but it’s incredible to watch its dogged exposition.

Obama opened with a glowing talk about the wonders of immigration – generalizations with which virtually [all] Americans agree, as is his wont.

Then the lies began. Posing as an immigration hardliner, Obama stated that he felt for “families who enter our country the right way and play by the rules,” and who “watch others flout the rules” (of course, Obama was mere moments away from rewarding those who flout the rules and punishing those who play by them). He then explained that businesses exploited cheap immigrant labor (of course, Obama was about to announce wage pressure downward in the form of amnesty). He summed up with this incredible sentence:

All of us take offense to anyone who reaps the rewards of living in America without taking on the responsibilities of living in America.

Well, no. Not all of us, given that the Democratic Party draws its voting base from those who wish to reap the rewards of living in America’s generous welfare state without taking on the responsibilities of doing so.

Obama continued with his fibs about how he had secured the southern border, citing a drop in illegal border crossings – a drop caused almost entirely by Obama’s weak economy (Obama himself dated the immigration drop to 2007, when President Bush was in office). He pooh-poohed the “brief spike in unaccompanied children being apprehended at our border,” and said that “the number of such children is now actually lower than it’s been in nearly two years.” The notion that there has been a decrease in unaccompanied children crossing our border, according to FactCheck.org, is false.

This all prefaced Obama’s big power grab. In true dictatorial fashion, Obama laid out how the legislative process had failed – and then noted that he had to do what he had to do.

Now, I continue to believe that the best way to solve this problem is by working together to pass that kind of common sense law. But until that happens, there are actions I have the legal authority to take as President – the same kinds of actions taken by Democratic and Republican Presidents before me – that will help make our immigration system more fair and more just.

Obama has no such legal authority. He knows it. Obama’s executive amnesty is different in scope and kind from anything before it. Neither Ronald Reagan nor George H.W. Bush pursued their amnesty programs in the complete absence of Congressional legislation. No president has ever legalized some 7 million illegal immigrants, as Obama has done over the past three years. This is unprecedented. Read more at breitbart.com.

 

Dear GOP… We’re Watching

OK, the much touted, much dreaded 2014 elections are over.  The Republicans now control both houses by wide margins.  How did we do it?  We did it because we Conservative and Tea Party voters realized that the time to save liberty and freedom was now, the time for smaller government was now and the time to get back to the rule of law was now.  In the words of Congressman Ted Yoho, “We’ve had enough!”  So we held our noses, went to the poles and voted Republican.  We did this even if it meant voting for a so-called moderate or RINO.

So what did we get for our efforts?  Hopefully a new class of freshman representatives and senators who will hit the ground running in January and make a real difference just like they did after the 2010 elections.  But we’re also burdened with those RINOS who got reelected.  Will they change?  Senator Pat Roberts says that he’s learned is lesson and will be more conservative, but most will remain pretty much the same; better than the Progressive Democrats, but not that much.

I’ll quote Thomas Jefferson again: ”The price of liberty is eternal vigilance”  Now is NOT the time to lie back on the couch, it’s the time to stay active and keep fighting to make those elected keep their promises and stand up to the Progressive (too kind a term) Left!

While I’m just an amateur tea party guy, here’s what some professionals have to say:

 

Dear Republicans: No One Elected You to Work with Democrats

As the reality of a Republican wave became imminent last night, a dangerous narrative began to take hold among the conservative talking heads on cable news and in the victory speeches of the victorious Republicans. The narrative was that now that the Republicans have control of both chambers of Congress, it is incumbent upon them to work with Obama and the other Democrats in the service of “getting things done” and “fixing the broken system.”  Read more at redstate.com.

 

Republican Majority, Day One: McConnell Surrenders

We have captured your capital and destroyed your army! We surrender!

If you watched the respective press conferences of Barack Obama and Mitch McConnell yesterday, you would be forgiven for thinking that the Democrats had just picked up a bunch of seats in the House and Senate, and the Republicans had just suffered a humiliating defeat. While President Obama was defiant and borderline delusional, claiming that the American people had not repudiated him and boldly proclaiming that he still had a mandate, and openly declaring that he would veto everything the Republicans sent his way and act on his own, Mitch McConnell was ruling out the use of the most potent weapons in his arsenal: Read more at redstate.com.

Why Andrew Breitbart, and the Tea Party, Chose a Different Path to Power

September 29, 2014 by  
Filed under Uncategorized

In early 2012, at the Breitbart News offices, as we watched one of the more disappointing presidential primary debates with our founder Andrew Breitbart, an interesting debate unfolded: would it be better for Mitt Romney (by then the inevitable nominee) to lose?

Andrew said no: a second Obama term would be a disaster for the country. Others countered that a Romney loss would provide a long-overdue opportunity to overhaul the Republican Party. One person even suggested that an effort could be organized to take over the GOP from within.

“Why would you ever want to do that?” Andrew asked.  Read more at Breitbart.com.

Breaking: By Sharyl Attkisson, The Daily Signal

New Benghazi allegation puts spotlight on Hillary Clinton confidants, alleged after-hours document review.

As the House Select Committee on Benghazi prepares for its first hearing this week, a former State Department diplomat is coming forward with a startling allegation: Hillary Clinton confidants were part of an operation to “separate” damaging documents before they were turned over to the Accountability Review Board investigating security lapses surrounding the Sept. 11, 2012, terrorist attacks on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya.

Justin Amash Supports Ted Yoho for Congress

Two term conservative congressman Justin Amash (R, Michigan) has endorsed Ted Yoho in his reelection bid against challenger Jake Rush.

Rush, a Gainesville attorney, has made headlines for his role playing hobby (source: Gainesville Sun, SaintPetersBlog), for his ruthless attack ads on Congressman Yoho, and large contributions to his campaign from a super PAC Florida Conservatives United (source: FactCheck.org) which is run by his father and aunt who are both Democrats.

 

Congressman Amash has recently won his primary after a vicious campaign which was so filled with smear tactics; it was called the nastiest in the country. Amash lashed out in his victory speech where he pulled no punches. Watch a portion of it here:

The Hell That is the Obama White House

By: David Horowitz – August 18th, 2014 at 04:58 PM

From Erick Erickson’s RedState.com:

Note from Erick: Please welcome to our front page the always awesome David Horowitz.

Let me begin by acknowledging that this inspirational title is lifted from a tweet by screen actor James Woods. And now I will explicate his tweet.

Every sentient human being whose brain isn’t stuffed with ideological fairy dust can see that Obama is behind every major scandal of his administration from Benghazi to the I.R.S. disgrace. How can one know this? Because the culprits haven’t been fired. Moreover, if they are serial liars like Susan Rice, they’ve actually been promoted to posts where their loyalty to the criminal-in-chief can do America and its citizens even more damage, if that is possible.

The Republican Establishment – With “friends” like these, who needs enemies?

From Deneen Borelli at FreedomWorks:  The Republican Establishment had to use Democrats to beat a real constitutional conservative in yesterday’s Mississippi primary.

Rather than allow grassroots conservatives to decide their next senator, Mitch McConnell, John McCain, the Chamber of Commerce, K Street lobbyists, and the NRSC (National Republican Senatorial Committee – explanation, mine) helped Democrats choose the Republican Nominee. It’s shameful, corrupt, and unforgivable.

The truth is: Chris McDaniel won a majority of Republican voters. That’s why the DC Establishment spent hundreds of thousands of dollars getting Democrat votes. They couldn’t maintain their hold on the Republican Party without them.

The K-Street Lobbyist crowd even sent out robocalls implying the Tea Party and Chris McDaniel were racist, because we oppose Obama’s agenda. The calls told voters to “say no to the Tea Party and their disrespectful treatment of the first African-American President.”

There were even flyers claiming that a McDaniel victory would stop black Americans from voting. The DC-insiders wanted Mississippi Democrats to think Constitutional Conservatives might be racist. This campaign is among the dirtiest, most despicable I’ve seen in my lifetime.

The Cochran campaign was based on helping his cronies. “Vote for Thad, he’ll get the pork!” With $17 trillion in debt and a shrinking economy, the GOP campaigned on more irresponsible spending we can’t afford. That’s why they needed Democrat voters to win – every real Republican knows we need to CUT spending.

If the only way the K Street wing of the GOP Establishment can win is by vile race-baiting and courting Democrats to vote in GOP primaries, then we’re winning. Because they’ve lost Republican voters, and they know it.

You know why the Republican Establishment and the DC-insiders fear us. They want to keep their gravy train rolling. They want unlimited spending and bigger government. That’s why they’re spending millions attacking patriotic conservatives like you and me.

That’s why we can’t give up. They’re afraid of us. And that’s how I know we’re making a difference, that’s how I know that this is the beginning of the end, and we will Take America Back. We must press on.

We will always stand by you. Thank you for all your hard work.

In Liberty,

Deneen Borelli

Hearing TONIGHT CSPAN-2 – IRS Obstruction: Lois Lerner’s Missing E-mails

Filed under Uncategorized

Monday, June 23rd  7:00PM – Live on CSPAN-2

Investigative journalist Sharyl Attkisson

IRS Commissioner John Koskinen testifies before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee about the loss of an unknown number of emails related to former IRS official Lois Lerner.

By Sharyl Attkisson * Sunday, June 22, 2014

15 Technology Questions for the IRS Prior to Monday’s Hearing.

In advance of tomorrow evening’s hearing on the Lost Lois Lerner emails, House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) has asked the IRS Commissioner to provide answers to 15 technology questions.

On Fri. June 13, the IRS notified Congress that key emails during a two year time frame, January 2009 to April 2011, were irretrievably lost due to a “crash” of Lerner’s hard drive and of a server. The IRS also said that computer crashes affected six other IRS employees who are connected to the investigation.

After the Friday notification, the Oversight Committee requested that the IRS make Thomas Kane, the IRS Acting Deputy Chief Counsel for Procurement and Administration, available for a transcribed interview about the Lerner emails but the IRS declined. The Committee then requested a briefing “to discuss the IRS’s e-mail systems, data retention policies, and document production processes” but the IRS declined that request as well.

“Because the IRS has refused to provide basic information about these matters to the Committee in advance of the hearing, and in the interest of promoting a frank and thorough discussion at the hearing, I ask that you provide answers to the factual questions posed below,” writes Issa in a letter addressed to Commissioner John Koskinen on Saturday. Read the rest of this article including the 15 questions submitted to IRS Commissioner John Koskinen HERE.

By now we have all heard about and celebrated an important victory in the interest of freedom and liberty with House Majority leader Eric Cantor’s defeat in Virginia. Dave Brat now faces a political battle against the Democrat candidate in November for his Congressional district. The important takeaway for those of us who do not live in Virginia is the indisputable fact that grassroots is alive and doing very well in spite of the commentary coming from progressive Republican pundits and the mainstream media. The unity of grassroots is the dynamic that will produce victories for limited government across the country.

SO we must now unite in helping Chris McDaniel in Mississippi as he challenges Republican incumbent Senator Thad Cochran, a typical Republican progressive who continually endorses big government and massive spending. WE CAN DO THIS! Dave Brat won with only $200,000.00 in donations while up against Cantor’s war chest of over two million dollars! And that is because patriots came together form all over the country to assist in his campaign, both with dollars and effort (and many, many kudos to our friends in the Richmond Tea Party who worked especially hard to make this victory happen!).”A brand new poll shows that Conservative Republican Chris McDaniel has built a 3% lead over his opponent, failed incumbent Thad Cochran in the special Runoff Election for U.S. Senate that takes place just two weeks from now.”

Send fifty dollars, send five! NO AMOUNT TOO SMALL!

The beginning of the end of World War II

Spectacular: The image by Chicago photographer Jeff Lewis appears to show an American flag in the sky

On June 6, 1944, more than 160,000 Allied troops landed along a 50-mile stretch of heavily-fortified French coastline, to fight Nazi Germany on the beaches of Normandy, France. Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower called the operation a crusade in which, “we will accept nothing less than full victory.” More than 5,000 Ships and 13,000 aircraft supported the D-Day invasion, and by day’s end, the Allies gained a foot-hold in Continental Europe. The cost in lives on D-Day was high. More than 9,000 Allied Soldiers were killed or wounded, but their sacrifice allowed more than 100,000 Soldiers to begin the slow, hard slog across Europe, to defeat Adolph Hitler’s crack troops.  http://www.army.mil/d-day/index.html
