An Ol' Broad's Ramblings
…An Instrument of Sabotage or Suicide for Conservatives.
As a Southerner, I understand that flag in a way that non Southerners don’t. Also as a Southerner, I think that having that flag had NO business being at the rally. It was about the slap in the face to our vets! I agree…the folks there should have confronted that fool! As a Southerner, I ashamed that that fool showed up at the rally carrying that flag! He does NOT represent conservatives, or the TEA Party! Get it right lib/progressive media!!!
Fixing the Blame on YOU
by The Bunker
It is time, time for everyone to keep a very close eye on the unfolding events in our country. We have entered the “Danger Zone.” Make no mistake about it. The rhetoric we are hearing from the Collectivist left is freighting. I can think of only one other time when a group of citizens has been so demonized in our country. That was during the time in our Republic leading up to The Civil War.
The Obama administration and his collectivist democrats are on a crisis fueled campaign to blame all our countries problems on the far right conservative Tea Party. The media has jumped in with shameful antagonistic name calling and is plastering the airwaves with propaganda.
The collectivist agenda is so important to this president and his cronies that he granted an interview to CNBC on Wednesday October 2nd and tried to scare the markets into a crash. Here is a link to a brief portion of that interview.
The president blamed the Tea Party faction of the Republicans and told investor’s to be worried that this time the government may default on its bond payments.
The next morning the market dropped about 186 points, sliding under 15,000 and by all indications the trend was going to continue down. By late morning House Speaker Boehner got in front of the camera’s and announced he would not allow a default to happen. The markets, on the statement from Boehner, reversed direction and ended the week back above 15,000.
Think very carefully about this event, because as far as I know it has never happened before. To have a president of the United States give a network interview and intentionally try to cause a market selloff is unprecedented. If John Boehner hadn’t stepped up and calmed things down there is no telling what might have happened. The markets are run on two human emotions; Greed and fear. Greed fuels the run ups and fear pushes the selloff’s.
In 2008 the economy collapsed. It was not the beginning of a great recession. If the government hadn’t stepped in with an injection of money the U S economy and most likely the world would have gone into a depression. It would have been more severe than the Great Depression of the 1930’s. Whether the continued government meddling in the markets is a good idea is not the point. President Obama, with this interview, was playing with matches in a room full of gasoline fumes. To say it was irresponsible doesn’t even begin to condemn his actions.
I urge you to research the true current state of the U S economy. We are not in any way, shape or form in a recovery. This nation is still in the rippling shock wave of the calamity of 2008. Investor’s are waiting for the next shoe to drop and want to be the first ones out of the market before it hits the floor. This president with the power of his words is a fool to try and set the next crash in motion just to collect political points against his sworn enemy.
The markets don’t climb forever. There will be another crash. How bad it will be is anyone’s guess. If the next drop in the market is anything like 2008 there will be no way to fix it. The Federal Reserve has played its last hand. Tax breaks to bump the economy into motion can’t happen. We are too far in debt. A 2008 scenario will be the final slide into oblivion for this nation.
When the next crash happens the Tea Party will get the blame. We are being set up right now.
It is a tactic as old as history, dictators always need someone to blame.
Auschwitz, Buchenwald, Dachau; don’t ever kid yourself into believing it can’t happen here.

I wasn’t able to go to D.C….obviously. I didn’t get to watch the big shindig, because…well…small person and such. I also haven’t found a video to embed…yet!
Oh, and FYI…yes…the sound does keep going out! I had NOTHING to do with that!
Donnie Harwood, Tn Tea Teams Coordinator led his team into battle yesterday (Tuesday) in a huge community meeting about the push for Sharia law compliance in Tennessee. Donnie estimates that there were over 1500 people in attendance along with FBI agents, Islamic Imams and elected officials.
This was a perfect opportunity for a Tea Teams “Pledge of Allegiance” mission and Donnie and his crew did it right. They brought a large American flag with them and spontaneously launched into the pledge of allegiance…..joined by the majority they “shouted” ONE NATION UNDER GOD! The rafters shook with the enthusiasm of American patriotism.
Tennessee got its first glimpse of the new Tea Teams USA. Our roaring lion logo was on display and Donnie received many positive comments from the citizens.
Tea Teams is now in demand for other events in Tennessee and Donnie and his team are gearing up to take on all comers.
When Tea Teams roar, the American heart listens.
Score one for the GOOD guys!
Rep Jim McDermott has been under the DNC rock so long, he couldn’t see reality when it bit him on the nose!
Rep Paul Ryan gives him a dose of reality! Will it have any affect? Of course not, but one can hope! But doubtful!
Well, that’s just how he is….polite. His mama raised him right. So did mine, but….. I would have gotten up, walked over to McDermott, and smacked him upside the head with a very large print copy of the U.S. Constitution! Guess I’m getting crotchety in my old age!
The Internal Revenue Service asked tea party groups to see donor rolls.
It asked for printouts of Facebook posts.
And it asked what books people were reading.
A POLITICO review of documents from 11 tea party and conservative groups that the IRS scrutinized in 2012 shows the agency wanted to know everything — in some cases, it even seemed curious what members were thinking. The review included interviews with groups or their representatives from Hawaii, New Mexico, Ohio, Texas and elsewhere.
The long-awaited Treasury Department inspector general report released Tuesday says the agency itself decided some of its questions to conservative groups were way over the line — especially the one about donors.
Paranoid? Conspiracy theorists? I don’t FREAKIN’ think so!
This has been quite an interesting week. Personal and political. I have actually avoided a lot of the “tabloid” news. Most, I could give a flying flip. We have been inundated with some stupid, crazy, broad that murdered her boyfriend. Is it necessary to do more than 2 or 3 minutes on this trash? Ok, we know she shot, stabbed, and darn near decapitated the poor guy. She was found guilty of first degree murder (took ‘em long enough) and…she’d rather get the death penalty than spend the rest of her life in prison! The lame stream media seems to believe this was so important, they spend way too much time covering the story when there were a LOT more important issues to address.
Like what you ask? Well, there’s that Mengele wanna be in Philadelphia for one. The prosecution presented a very compelling case, and the defense rested. Nothing. Rather odd, but hey…when you have that much to dispute, and you already several pleading guilty on the same charges, it’s kind of hard to defend someone who murdered babies and a ‘mother’. He should have been charged with a lot more, but hey….if this will put a stop to his slaughter, ok! The jury is STILL out on this one. Strange that the lame stream didn’t even pick up the story for months. Just recently they have been shamed into giving the story a bit of attention. I could have given them a verdict in about 2 seconds, but since there are actually 227 charges, I guess it takes a while.
What SHOULD have been the lead story for EVERY media outlet was the hearings on Benghazi! But no…it wasn’t even important enough to trump the tabloid media’s coverage of the bimbo from hell! FINALLY, yesterday, the lame stream took notice, and pounded Obama’s mouthpiece. If you saw any of the press conference‘that was delayed for 3 hours because of a “private meeting“, you would have been impressed. Naturally, the White House’s very own Bagdad Bob, Carney blamed the Republicans. You’d think someone would step up, but no, this is the Obama administration is incapable of taking responsibility for ANYTHING! Kind of reminds me of a 4 year old that broke the cookie jar. People wouldn’t be so up in arms if, just for once, they’d tell the freakin’ truth! That’s all we’re asking!
Then we had the IRS. Yes, that ‘non-partison’, government run, money stealing bunch literally TARGETED the Tea Parties, and anyone who is associated with any of the Tea Party groups, even a former candidate for the House! Oh, they apologized, but that ain’t cuttin’ it! I wonder if the small issue we had was related? Naw…couldn’t be! …… :| Let’s not forget that this is the same IRS that will be ‘in charge’ of all the Obamacare “it’s not a tax” taxes.
As for the personal part of the week…. I’ve spent a lot of time with doctors. Next week, and the week after….same thing. I now have general, bone, heart, snout, blood, and skin doc. Jiminy crickets! So, blogging will just as light, or maybe even non existent, on most days. I’ve also got a lot on my mind, as you can imagine. sigh… I still think it would be cheaper if the Mr just got that young fella to bring over his backhoe, dig a 6×4, and toss me in! Sheesh!
The fact that the only person who even mentioned Sen Paul’s Tea Party response to the SOTU was Greta van Susteren says a WHOLE lot! I suppose the elites who have taken over Fox News no longer believe in ‘fair and balanced’? Yeah, I’m angry about being marginalized! We have NOT gone away, and will be here for many years to come. We might not be out in the streets like the leftards (probably because most work for a living, and are not dependent on the government, or some union to pay them to carry signs?), but we are STILL HERE!
South Carolina Sen. Jim DeMint is leaving Congress to head the conservative Heritage Foundation.
The Tea Party-backed senator announced the move Thursday, saying he will step down from the Senate in January to become president of The Heritage Foundation think tank.
“I’m leaving the Senate now, but I’m not leaving the fight. I’ve decided to join The Heritage Foundation at a time when the conservative movement needs strong leadership in the battle of ideas,” he said in a statement. “No organization is better equipped to lead this fight and I believe my experience in public office as well as in the private sector as a business owner will help Heritage become even more effective in the years to come.”
DeMint has been an outspoken voice in the Senate for its most conservative wing, most recently chiding House Republican leaders for offering to put revenue on the table as part of negotiations over the looming fiscal crisis.
One of the few voices we’ve had in the Senate is leaving? No, this doesn’t make me happy at all!
Congress has been in the business of wrecking the economy and then claiming they have the solution to fix the problems they created. Curses on both their houses.
Now the blame-game is coming from the Romney camp. In an interview with Candy Crowley, Romney adviser Carlos Gutierrez first attacked Romney for his remarks about “gifts” by Obama to buy votes. On this Romney is correct despite what some Republicans who are trying to position themselves for 2016 are saying. Then Gutierrez goes further off the rails. Like so many Establishment Republicans, he does not understand the mood of millions of conservatives who once formed the foundation of the Republican Party and gave it substantial victories in past elections, 2010 being the most recent:
“I think we lost the election because the far right of this party has taken the party to a place that it doesn’t belong. We are the party of prosperity, of growth, of tolerance. I mean these immigrants who come across and what they do wrong is they risk their lives, they come here and they work because they want to be part of the American Dream. That’s what the GOP is.”
People are really starting to PISS ME OFF!! This clown blames people like me. Another ‘adviser’ blames Chris Christie. Talking heads blame Limbaugh. Jindal says we have to make people like us? Give me a flippin’ break!
Ya wanna know whose fault it is that we’re stuck with that incompetent boob for four more years? There’s a long list! Where should I start?
How about with government run indoctrination centers! Yep, for the last 40 years or so, our so called public education system has been churning out virtual morons, incapable of rational, and critical thinking. They are instructed to ‘think’ what they are told, and never question the rationality.
Then, we have the media. Dear Lord in Heaven! What a freakin’ joke! Instead of actual news, we are spoon fed the pablum that they want us to hear, and ignore the truth. Once again, the inability to think critically comes into play. People don’t bother to investigate further, so they just stroll along, believing the BS they have been handed.
How about those voting vaginas? Now there’s a real bunch of geniuses! I guess if you think that you have the ‘right’ to slaughter your child, calling it ‘choice’ (although the choice was made before the conception), and think that you also have the right to spread ‘em anytime ya please, with contraception paid for by SOMEONE ELSE, then yeah… brilliant! /snark Criminy, these females are an embarrassment to all thinking women!
Shall we talk about the GOP? Yeah…there a real bunch of losers for ya! A handful of ‘rich fat cats’ have taken the platform that WINS, and turned it into a ‘big tent’. Stuff your big tent where the sun don’t shine! TRUTH doesn’t need a tent! Instead of reaching out to the base….folks like me, the TEA Party activists, the TRUE CONSERVATIVES….they placate the wishy washy middle of the road, can’t decide, fence sitters, and end up with splinters up their butts, and blame us? Naw…that ain’t gonna fly bub!
And Governor Jindal…with all due respect, I don’t give a flying $%#@ if people like us or not! Liking doesn’t mean DICK when you send the WRONG message! People seem to like Obama, for what reason, I have yet to figure out, but that doesn’t mean he’s the right person for the job! So, whether or not someone is ‘likable’ is irrelevant!
When it comes to Hispanics, they’ve been fed a line of BS as long as the U.S./Mexican border! The key word…ILLEGAL….seems to be left out quite a bit. Hey… we like immigrants just fine! We just prefer them to come in the front door, with permission, instead of breaking in the back door, expecting goodies at the expense of the tax payer, of all colors, creeds, and origins!
Then there’s that one GLARING issue no one seems to want to talk about….CHEATING! How many incidents of obvious fraud have been counted, yet not a word from the GOPers. If they had any sense, they’d demand a recount, nation wide! Voting machines changing votes. Illegals voting. Multiple votes…by the same person…and bragging about it? Yet….what do we get?
Yep! There are a whole lot of reasons we’ve been shafted once again. This is just the tip of the iceberg. So, here’s a clue for you establishment GOPers. Either you can start listening to US…as in WE, The People, or you can find another line of work because there won’t be a Grand Old Party anymore, and we’ll take it from here. There’s this thing called the U.S. Constitution that we are REAL fond of, and if that makes us extreme, ‘the far right’, or whatever other name you want to tack onto us, so be it! We ain’t going away, but YOU just might! Join US, or get left behind. Your choice!
