Vote Republican? Yeah Right!
by The Bunker
Its time to jump the fence, run from the reservation, look the enemy directly in the eye and say, “SCREW YOU” I’m talking about the 2014 elections. You see, right now the greasy republican’s in the leadership are rubbing their filthy money grubbing hands together because they are sure that they are going to win and win big. Oh, they have the committee assignments all planned out, “O K mister big time money getter congressman or senator you get the chairmanship of the lobbyist’s favorite committee. Get us the money sonny!!” And if by some rare chance any real conservative’s show up, “Off to the dungeon for you boy!” That’s how it’s worked in the past and it ain’t going to stop. Why? Because we let it, we keep believing the same old worn out bull crap slogan, “OMG, OMG, we have to vote for the republicans or the democrats will win, AHHHHHH, the sky is falling, the sky is falling.”
In case you haven’t noticed there is a commie cabal in place in the White House and their puppet is poking holes not just in the sky but in the Constitution. For over five years this Obama has laughed in our face and poked us in the eye. He mocks us, calls us names, denigrates our religion, coddles our enemies and has enjoyed every minute of it. And NO ONE, especially the precious republicans have even attempted to stop him, or even called him out. Don’t give me this garbage about congressional committees, filibusters and investigations, its all just blabber de blabber to keep us grasping for the bait. ACTION; where is the LEGAL action? Now this Obama is committing TREASON by aiding and abetting the Al Qaeda terrorists in Syria. Hey Mr. and Mrs. Republican how come your guys aren’t speaking up? I thought we were at war with Al Qaeda, you know our sworn enemy, the evil doers. Yeah, and now Obama is going to be supplying them with shoulder fired ground to air missiles. Can anyone say, “Another 747 bites the dust?” WAKE THE HELL UP!
Oh I know, “if we just elect more conservative republicans, the leadership will have to listen to us.” Let me quote George Carlin, “They own this place, it’s a big club and you and I ain’t in it…. The table is tilted, the game is rigged and nobody seems to notice and nobody seems to care…It’s called the American dream because you have to be asleep to believe it.”
You want to get the republicans attention? Do you want them to start listening to you? Here’s an idea, DON’T VOTE FOR THEM. STAY THE HELL HOME AND WATCH A MOVIE. Let me quote someone else, Hillary, “What difference, at this point does it make anyway?” You want a good movie to watch on Election Day, how about, “The Economy and Your Lovely Conservative World are About to End, WAKE THE HELL UP!” O K there isn’t a movie like that because I’m talking about REALITY here, not some stupid fiction.
What’s coming our way is beyond comprehension. The republicans know it and aren’t doing a damn thing to stop it or stop Obama from making it happen. They just want a piece of the action. I am going to borrow one more thing. It’s from John Ringo’s book, “The Last Centurion.” Here’s what’s coming, “The Time of Suckage.” Oh, you don’t like bad language? Well, you better toughen up buttercup because when you are getting beat about the head and back by a baseball bat, the guy swinging that bat ain’t going to be singing you a lullaby.
Vote for a republican? That will be a cold day in hell, and hell is on its way, courtesy of the R’s and the D’s.
We are on our own, prepare accordingly.
Ol’ Broad’s 2 cents: While I do agree with The Bunker, I don’t think sitting at home, not voting will help. Granted, we aren’t going to have perfect candidates, and some are a lot worse than others. In the primaries, vote for the opponent to the incumbent. We need to take our country back from the feckless weasels, and get back on the right track. If we continue on the road we are being herded, we will never see the God given liberties granted by the U.S. Constitution.
I know there are a lot of people all riled up because “Tea Party” backed candidates didn’t do so well last night. I’m not one of them. Sure, I’d love to see more conservative folks up there in that cesspool we call the capital, but I also want the Ds put into the minority in the Senate, and undo the damage that raving lunatic, Dirty Harry, has done. And let’s face it, Mitch McConnell may not be our ideal guy, but he’s a hell of a lot better than Harry Reid, who has blocked every common sense bill, or amendment, that has come down the pike!
One thing that seriously annoys me is the attacks that have come out against all the conservative candidates, by the establishment of the GOP. To me, that shows a lack of integrity on the Party’s part. That chaps my hide! Is it any wonder there are so many on the right that are fed up with them? It’s time to stop the back biting within the party, the establishment needs to read the Reagan platform, and work WITH the people, not against them….us! When an incumbent hasn’t held up his end of the bargain made with his/her constituents, the Party heads need to politely, but firmly, tell him/her to step aside. That won’t happen though, because, just like the Dems, the Rs like their power too much to let go. This is what is destroying the country. No, it’s not just Obama’s power grab that we should be concerned about, it’s the ‘old boys network’.
One problem with the newcomers, they don’t know how to campaign effectively, even if they would be better in that seat. That’s where the Party needs to step in and give some guidance, not stab them in the back, and throw them to the wolves. Another problem, money. The incumbent always has a substantial ‘war chest’ to run TV ads, not to put a positive spin on their accomplishments, but to attack. Sadly, such attack ads work, even though we all say we don’t like them, they are extremely effective. What does that say about us, the voter? Nothing nice, I can assure you!
The infighting must stop! The Republicans are going to snatch defeat from the mouth of victory if we don’t! I don’t care if you are not a supporter of whoever won the primary. YOUR feelings don’t matter, nor do mine! What we FEEL is irrelevant! What we know, deep down, if we don’t win back the Senate, with a substantial number, we will have Harry Reid at the helm, and that spells disaster for the country.
No, I’m not a Republican mouthpiece. I’m a conservative! Perhaps you could say I’m a Reagan Lincoln Republican. However, this is not about Republican or Democrat. This is not a left/right issue. This is about right and wrong. And Harry Reid,and the Democrats, are just flat out WRONG, on everything. Like it or not, support the candidate! Hold your nose if you have to, but for the sake of our children we MUST retake the Senate, keep the House, and boot the Dems from the White House in 2016. Or sooner!
They all swore an oath to uphold the Constitution, the law of the land. Many have failed to uphold their oaths, and must be removed. Is it any wonder the favorability numbers of Congress are so low? I think the last I heard, it was 6%. Yeah…pretty bad!
So yes, first we need to WIN in November! THEN, we can work to get those clowns heads back on the RIGHT track!
Assemble the Perfect Candidate for 2016
The Heroism Of Wendy Davis
by Ann Coulter
In a typical formulation, Time magazine said Davis was someone who could give the Democrats “‘real people’ credibility,” based on “her own personal story — an absent father, a sixth-grade-educated mother, a teen pregnancy, followed by life as a single mom in a mobile home, then community college and, at last, Harvard Law School.”
The headlines capture the essence of Wendy-mania:
CNN: Wendy Davis: From Teen Mom to Harvard Law to Famous Filibuster
Bloomberg: Texas Filibuster Star Rose From Teen Mom to Harvard Law
The Independent (UK): Wendy Davis: Single Mother From Trailer Park Who Has Become Heroine of Pro-Choice Movement
Cosmopolitan: Find a Sugar Daddy to Put You Through Law School!
And don’t forget…if you are in Virginia, VOTE FOR KEN CUCCINELLI!
It’s not bad enough we have major RINO in the Senate, supposedly representing the folks in the state of Tennessee? He now blocks his constituents? Seriously?
Sam Hatt, a self-described constitutional conservative and Sparta,Tennessee resident , tells us that Alexander blocked him shortly after Representative Carr announced he would challenge him for the Senate seat. “I asked Alexander how many pieces of silver Washington was paying him to vote liberal. I was no longer allowed to comment or contact the Senator,” says Hatt.
Phil Dedrick, another self-described constitutional conservative and legislative activist living in Waynesborro,Tennessee, has voted for Alexander every time he has run for office since 1978. “Things are different now,” says Dedrick. ”He votes Liberal and we Tennesseans sent him to DC to vote as a conservative, and only as a conservative. If Lamar is going to vote the way he has been, then he should run as a Democrat.”
Dedrick was blocked after posting Lamar’s voting record on a post where the senator had lied to voters about his vote. “I was simply trying to show voters the truth,” says Dedrick.
I guess the ‘gentleman from Tennessee’ has a VERY thin skin! If he can’t take criticism from his constituents, then perhaps he needs to find another line of work. Oh…that’s right! We’re trying to help him do JUST THAT!
Read the whole column. Quite an eye opener on the hopefully EX TN Senator!!
Isn’t it funny. I have contacted Alexander on a number of issues since we moved to Tennessee, and of all the many emails I’ve sent, I’ve received perhaps 2, maybe 3 responses…form letters of course, that never answers any questions. I get the impression he doesn’t like me very much. Shoot, I get the impression he doesn’t like conservatives! Hmmm… Not a good idea to shaft the folks who vote you in, or out, as the case may be. In your case, we are hoping for OUT in the not too distant future!
Born in Canada to an American mother, Ted Cruz became an instant U.S. citizen. But under Canadian law, he also became a citizen of that country the moment he was born.
Unless the Texas Republican senator formally renounces that citizenship, he will remain a citizen of both countries, legal experts say.
Well, I’m rather curious as to why he hasn’t renounced his Canadian citizenship already.
“He’s a Canadian,” said Toronto lawyer Stephen Green, past chairman of the Canadian Bar Association’s Citizenship and Immigration Section.
The circumstances of Cruz’s birth have fueled a simmering debate over his eligibility to run for president. Knowingly or not, dual citizenship is an apparent if inconvenient truth for the tea party firebrand, who shows every sign he’s angling for the White House.
“Senator Cruz became a U.S. citizen at birth, and he never had to go through a naturalization process after birth to become a U.S. citizen,” said spokeswoman Catherine Frazier. “To our knowledge, he never had Canadian citizenship, so there is nothing to renounce.”
Now looky here….John McCain wasn’t born on U.S. soil either, which the left was so fast to point out back when, so what’s the problem? BOTH are U.S. citizens. Period. We aren’t so sure about Obama, cuz who the hell knows WHAT he is, but he’s still sitting in the White House, spending all our money, isn’ he!
Unlike the U.S., which requires its citizens to pay taxes no matter where they live in the world, Canada only taxes people who reside there.
So there’s rarely much reason to relinquish Canadian citizenship.
For Cruz, though, it may become a political imperative. Though it would not affect his eligibility for the presidency, he could face questions about whether it’s appropriate for a commander in chief to have dual citizenship.
Spend the $100, get the problem resolved. Ted Cruz, at this point in time, is one of the few people I could get excited about in 2016!
On a side note, I’d really like to know why the blazes the U.S. feels it’s entitled to YOUR money even when you live outside the U.S. What’s up with that? Bloody money grubbing parasites!
After a very long day of driving to and from Jackson for a 15 minute scan of cats (CT scan), the Mr and I sat down to watch the third Obama lie fest, also known as a presidential debate. Joy. I’ve never had a blood pressure problem, but I gotta tell ya, last night had me wound up tighter that a yo-yo! And that was AFTER taking pain meds.
Ok, so what did I honestly think? We’re honest here, right? Bob Schiefer didn’t do as bad a job as what I had expected. He did attempt to reign in Obama when he just HAD to give his “I’ll make it quick” speeches. Although he wasn’t always successful, he did try. Governor Romney, on the other hand, was more successful in behaving like an adult, which isn’t all the surprising when you consider he WAS the only adult in the debate.
I learned nothing new. I don’t know about you, but I’m of the mind that Obama could get some new material, based more on truth and reality than what he spits out on his stump speeches. When he continuously repeats, pretty much word for word, the same lies that have been PROVEN to be lies, over and over and over…whether in a speech or debate, it makes for some seriously boring viewing. He seems to be incapable of giving a direct answer to a direct question. Think Libya! He still refuses to give direct answers, and contrary to what some of the extreme left talking heads have been saying, it IS an important issue, and NO, we are NOT going to “move on”!
While Romney didn’t give his best performance, he was still head and shoulders above Obama. He didn’t smirk, grit his teeth, or express anything condescending in either his responses, or his body language. He started out slow, thanks in large part to Obama’s petulant behavior, but ended up pretty strong. Has anyone made a count of how many times each interrupted the other? While Obama attacked with sound bites, Romney attempted to give clear and concise responses. It’s difficult to debate a petulant 4 year old, and Gov Romney showed a great deal of patience. Personally, I would have had to reach across that table and do a Gibbs on the kid.
I was a little disappointed in some of Romney’s responses to a few questions, like dealing with countries that hate us. I’m sorry, but diplomacy won’t work with countries like Iran, and it sure won’t work with the billions of Muslims whose only purpose in life is to destroy the U.S. and Israel. If he has read the Quran, he’d know that. There are no moderate Muslims, just ones who let the jihadis do the job for them.
Others have picked apart the responses, and done a much better job than I could (see below). Unfortunately for Mr Obama, there are a great many of us out here in the real world who know he lies, and has from the beginning. Thankfully, many more are waking up to that fact. I just hope it’s not too late! The media on the other hand is nothing more than the Obama propaganda machine, and those who still have some common sense left would do well to avoid them.
For the record, Mr Obama, this is a picture of a Marine. Please note the long sharp pointy thing at the end of his weapon. THAT is called a “bayonet”. Please attempt to learn a few facts, K?
And…for those of you who missed it, or are a glutton for punishment, here is the debate in its entirety:
Obama/Biden – ZIP
I keep hearing/reading that the ‘experts’ say Mitt Romney has no experience in foreign policy, so he shouldn’t be elected president. Uh huh….and the guy who went into the White House almost 4 years ago had no foreign policy experience either. The problem is, he still doesn’t. Apparently, he has learned nothing in his term about economic, domestic, or foreign policies. What little he has accomplished was started by the Bush administration, and he just left those policies in place. Anything he has done on his own he has royally F.d Up.
Apparently, he has been following the well intentioned, but totally naive, advice of the Report on the commission on the Prevention of Weapons of Mass Destruction Proliferation and Terrorism (Graham/Talent Commission) which, in part, states:
“The next administration needs to go much further, using the tools of ‘soft power’ to communicate effectively about American intentions and to build grassroots social and economic institutions that will discourage radicalism and undercut terrorists in danger spots around the world-especially in Pakistan. There are simple steps that most individuals can take to mitigate the consequences of an attack-even a WMD attack. By demonstrating that they could reduce at a national level the potential damage and lasting effects caused by an attack, citizens might convince a terrorist organization that pursuing such an attack was not worth the effort and thus deter it.”
Excuse me while I pick my chin up off the floor. Have they not heard the words of the jihadists? Their intent is to destroy the U.S., and thus destroy Israel. Since the U.S. swore to protect Israel (although I doubt if this pretender has any intention of keeping that promise), what better way to insure Israel’s destruction than to first obliterate the world’s only super power who could stop them in their quest?
It’s time to face some hard realities. We will be at war for the rest of our lives…..unless we can’t totally destroy the evil that permeates the entire world, or we are completely and thoroughly obliterated. The intent of Islam is to rule the entire world, and they aren’t joking around. There are NO moderate Muslims who can be reasoned with, on any level. They will either enact Sharia Law in every nation, or die trying. Life means nothing to these people. It’s high time the U.S. Government come to grips with that reality!
Tonight’s final presidential debate will focus solely on foreign policy. Moderator Bob Schieffer announced that the topics will be: “America’s Role in the World,” “Our Longest War—Afghanistan and Pakistan,” “Red Lines—Israel and Iran,” “The Changing Middle East and the New Face of Terrorism,” and “The Rise of China and Tomorrow’s World.” Heritage’s foreign policy experts have written a series of tipsheets for prepping on each of these issues, featured on our Debate 2012 page and linked below.
Do you ever have the overwhelming need to take someone by the shoulders and shake them till their head rattles? I got that feeling a LOT last night. I do have to admit that Obama was a bit more animated, but his inability to tell the truth when it DOES smack him upside the head is just mind boggling. I kind of doubt I’m not the only one who notice most of his responses were pretty much exactly the same as his speeches on the stump. The could have just had a tape of him, from any number of his campaign speeches….really doesn’t matter which parts, because he mostly failed to answer the specific questions that were asked by the audience.
Governor Romney, on the other hand, did do his best to answer the questions. That is, until Obama interrupted him. I did notice that after a while, Romney was also doing some interrupting of his own. Considering that Obama got more time than he did, can’t say as I blame him, although it is rude. If he hadn’t, likely all we would have heard is just one more word for word speech from the man/child. You could tell, by the look on his face, he was getting frustrated.
One point in Obama’s favor….he didn’t do all the cackling that Biden did, although there were plenty of smirks. That line from Jack Nicholson in A Few Good Men comes to mind…”You can’t handle the truth!” Mr Obama has a real problem with truth! Repeating the same tired old accusations that have been proven false, time and time again, is pretty pathetic, and extremely un-presidential.
One of the many whoppers…Obama claimed that he called the attack in Benghazi ‘a terrorist attack’. The Rose Garden speech does mention the word terror:
No acts of terror will ever shake the resolve of this great nation, alter that character, or eclipse the light of the values that we stand for. Today we mourn four more Americans who represent the very best of the United States of America. We will not waver in our commitment to see that justice is done for this terrible act. And make no mistake, justice will be done.
However, as is typical, Mr Obama twisted the truth….he NEVER called the attack on our consulate and the murder of our countrymen an ‘act of terror’. It was at least two weeks AFTER the murders that he finally conceded it was a planned attack on OUR soil against OUR representatives. To me, that is an act of war. To the Obama administration, it’s an every day, ordinary crime.
The numbers he keeps making up as he goes along are easy to check as well. Apparently, he’s counting on his base to remain ignorant.
Sad to say, the critics were correct in questioning Crowley as moderator. She may have attempted to be neutral, but quite a few times, her bias would shine through. Did they goes through a pool of the most left leaning “journalists” they could find, and pick out the ones with no objectivity? Whoever decided on the two women moderators must have been smoking crack.
While Obama did do a bit better in this debate, I’m going to have to say that Romney won once again. Content, believability, and style are quite important when deciding on a president. Who would make a better leader? Obama has no content, and his lack of presidential behavior is all too apparent. He is definitely NO leader! He is not good for this country, as is evidenced by the shape we are in today. It is time for him to retire to his rumored multi million dollar mansion in Hawaii.
Romney – 2
Obama – ZIP
….from Chicks On The Right!
We plan on watching the debate this evening. Considering the ABC “news” correspondent is apparently a bud of the pretender’s, I’m fairly sure that it will be nothing less than infuriating, yet entertaining. You’d like to think that such person in the business would be fairly neutral when dealing with politics, and politicians. Sadly, we’ve learned the last couple of decades that covering one’s bias for one side or the other is passe’. Organizations such as ABC have been carrying Obama’s spit bucket since he announced in Springfield.
I predict that Joe Biden’s lies will be given a pass, and Paul Ryan’s truths will be vilified. It’s just the way they roll! If she does happen to ask any of the questions below, in a serious manner, honestly, I will be surprised.
10 Questions for the Vice Presidential Debate
Tonight’s debate between Vice President Joe Biden and Representative Paul Ryan is supposed to cover both domestic and foreign policy. The Heritage Foundation’s policy experts have submitted 10 questions they would like to see asked in the debate.
Watch with us tonight—we will be streaming the debate live at 9 p.m. ET on our Debate 2012 page, with an experts’ live blog.
1. Obamacare takes $716 billion out of Medicare to fund Obamacare. This includes $156 billion in cuts to Medicare Advantage. Currently, 27 percent of all Medicare beneficiaries are enrolled in Medicare Advantage, which is a private alternative to traditional Medicare. The Medicare Chief Actuary projects that by 2017, Obamacare’s severe cuts will decrease enrollment in Medicare Advantage by 50 percent and result in less generous benefit packages for those who do remain in the program. What changes would you make, if any, to ensure that these seniors are able to keep their current Medicare Advantage plan?
Civil rights attorney George Barrett Wednesday filed an appeal to the Tennessee Court of Appeals of a recent state court decision that found Tennessee’s voter identification law to be constitutional.
His application for emergency appeal asks state officials to remove government-issued photo ID as a voting requirement in the November election.
The appeal requests a hearing no later than Oct. 12. Tennessee’s early voting starts Oct. 17.
Barrett has been at war for months with state officials over the state’s voter ID law, which took effect this year. He has called the law “an unconstitutional impediment on the right to vote.”
Isn’t it interesting that the only people who object to a photo ID to use the most precious gift we have as Americans, the right to vote, are the same ones that insisted on photo ID at their convention? These are the same liars who encourage criminals to invade our country, who cheat and steal to get what they want, and to hell with the rest of us. We don’t matter. It’s their ability to cheat to retain THEIR power that matters.
This is not a civil rights issue! Why some overpriced civil rights lawyers has poked his nose in is beyond me. There are quite a number of areas where you NEED a photo ID. Here are just a few:
Apply for welfare
Apply for food stamps
Cash a check
Purchase a firearm
Make any large credit card purchase
Open a bank account
Rent an apartment
Be admitted to a hospital
Get a marriage license
Get a library card
Buy an airline ticket
Get on the plane
Rent a video
Pawn any item
And that’s just for starters. How is that discriminatory? I guess since voting is more important that buying groceries, it’s ok to cheat, and have those not allowed to vote under the U.S. Constitution? They’re even giving out FREE photo IDs, so what the blazes is the problem? If so many minorities are going to be “disenfranchised”, then why are so many minorities driving cars? Buying liquor, renting apartments, just like the rest of the population?
Nope…this isn’t about disenfranchising anyone but those who are NOT legally allowed to vote. And I have NO problem with that whatsoever! I am sick of the fraud perpetrated on the American people, no matter which party is responsible. The fact that the Democrats have become experts at this kind of fraud says a LOT about their moral compass!
