So You Think You’re Safe With the 2014 Republican Win

“The chief problem of American political life for a long time has been how to make the two Congressional parties more national and international.  The argument that the two parties should represent opposed ideals and policies, one perhaps, of the Right and the other of the Left, is a foolish idea acceptable only to doctrinaire and academic thinkers.  Instead the two parties should be almost identical, so that the American people can ‘throw the rascals out’ at any election without leading to any profound or extensive shifts in policy.  The policies that are vital and necessary for America are no longer subjects of significant disagreement, but are disputable only in details of procedure, priority, or method …..Then it should be possible to replace it, every four years if necessary, by the other party, which will be none of these things but WILL STILL PURSUE, with new vigor, approximately the SAME BASIC POLICIES.”  -1966 Carroll Quigley in his book, Tragedy and Hope

Democrats and Republicans

The Morning After the 2014 Elections

This morning I did something I never do.  I turned on Fox News to hear what had happened with the election.  All local channels were also checked and listened to for a few minutes.  The whole Rah-Rah of the Republicans regaining the Senate after 8 years, the new Republican governorships, and seats in congress, was blasting on Fox and conservative radio talk shows. The propaganda being spewed was that we have been saved.  What a far cry from the truth.

Every morning program, including Fox, featured their hero, Gov. Chris Christie because he won New Jersey with a 21 point landslide.  What does this tell you about the people of New Jersey?  I mean really…Christie is certainly no conservative. In 2011, he appointed Islamist Sohail Mohammed for Superior Court judge of NJ.  What he didn’t tell folks was that Mohammed was an attorney for Imam Mohammed Qatanani, a radical cleric linked to Hamas that the Department of Homeland Security wants to deport from the country. Mohammed was also the General Counsel for the American Muslim Union, a group closely tied to Qatanani’s mosque, the Islamic Center of Passaic County. The mosque continues to be an outreach partner of the Christie Administration.

The Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) honored Christie in September of 2014, as one of the heroes making “outstanding contributions to pushing back against Islamophobic trends in 2011 and 2012.” CAIR is an unindicted co-conspirator in a Hamas-financing trial and the Justice Department labeled it as a U.S. Muslim Brotherhood.  Read more about Christie’s Islamic ties here in the Clarion Project.

Remember too who Christie has as his advisors for his 2016 presidential run. The top two advisors who should worry the public are Richard N. Haass, President of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), a position he has held since July 2003. Haass also has been Vice President and Director of Foreign Policy Studies at The Brookings Institution, (funded by the Rockefeller Foundation and the Carnegie Corporation of New York) a senior associate at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, a Lecturer in Public Policy at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government, and a research associate at the International Institute for Strategic Studies, and a Rhodes Scholar.  The other wonderful advisor really takes the cake…it’s none other than Soviet Agent, Henry Kissinger.  Needless to say, I didn’t spend much time watching these news programs.

2010 Election

Americans really do have very short memories. Do any of you remember the 2010 TP midterm elections?  In the 2010 midterm elections, The New York Times identified 138 candidates for Congress with significant Tea Party support, and reported that all of them were running as Republicans. According to a calculation on an NBC blog, of the candidates that were backed by a Tea Party group, or identified themselves as a Tea Party member, 50% were elected to the Senate and 31% to the House, which resulted in 87 new house members.  That was a big win for Republicans.  Within 6 weeks of taking office, all of these TP candidates drank the Potomac Punch and became the new neo-conservative Trotskyites in the House and Senate.

Let’s just look at what the 2010 TP Republicans voted for…not a pretty sight.  Here are just a few of their unconstitutional votes:

  1. Pigford farm payouts which is nothing more than wealth redistribution.
  2. Cut, Cap and Balance Act to raise the federal debt limit.
  3. Voted against cutting 100 billion from Obamacare
  4. The National Defense Authorization Act was passed, eliminating habeas corpus for American citizens, although many of these new reps claimed it was not in the act…
  5. They passed the reauthorization of the Patriot Act.
  6. And here are the names of the 92 house Republicans who stood with Nancy Pelosi and House Democrats when they voted February of 2011, AGAINST Rep. Jim Jordan’s amendment to cut government spending.

Tea Party favorite Allen West even told us the NDAA did not have the elimination of habeas corpus for American citizens, and he even sat on the committee for the NDAA.  As good as West is on understanding the dangers of Islam, he failed his constituents a number of times.  In fact, when he voted for the debt ceiling increase, he angered his district so much that when he was interviewed after the vote by Laura Ingraham, he called the Tea Party folks schizos.  Here is the video of that interview.  West lost his next election, mostly because of redistricting, but also because he failed the people who put him in office.

What Will They Fix?

Talk show host,Dennis Prager is fond of stating that all Republicans voted against Obamacare, but what he never states is that all Republicans did NOT vote to defund Obamacare.  Now that we have a Republican Congress and Senate, do you believe they’ll defund it?  Hell no they won’t…they’ll “tweak” it to suit their own purposes…all for the good of us “useless eaters” and the dumbed down masses, doncha know!

The House has had a majority of Republicans and they could have possibly stopped many of the President’s Executive Orders which are totally unconstitutional. Congress can override an executive order by the President if they have a 2/3 majority vote. They can also pass legislation that won’t allow funding for whatever the President wants to do. This keeps our government from becoming a dictatorship.  However, we’ve not heard a peep out of any of our Congress criminals regarding Obama’s overwhelming use of his pen now, have we?

Congress is the legislative arm of the government, not the president. The article, “Do Executive Orders Violate the Constitution?” will answer many of the questions regarding EO’s. Another excellent article on EO’s is this one by Jim Powell at Forbes Magazine.

The Players

So, we now have Mitch McConnell as Senate Majority Leader, and John Boehner as Speaker of the House.  Don’t those two give you great hope that the Republic will be saved?  Highly doubtful in my book.  Boehner sides with Obama way too much for my comfort, and of course loves playing golf with the Prez.  McConnell is very tight with the Koch brothers and Americans for Prosperity who I’ve written about many times.  In a recent article, McConnell’s father-in-law’s ship was found to be carrying a large quantity of cocaine.  The Senator is married to Elaine Chao, former Secretary of Labor under George W. Bush.  Neither man is a true Constitutional conservative, and their votes and actions tell the tale.  They both impress me as male Pelosi’s.

My good and wise friend said this, “The new majority will pretend to tweak Obamacare, but they’ll leave it pretty much intact; they’ll pretend to be against cheap, illegal, immigrant labor, but they’ll fund millions of new, incoming illegals; there will be MORE war, since the chickenHAWKS will be in charge. The end result is that you’ll have to look at senile, old fart Mitch McConnell spewing lies instead of senile, old fart Harry Reid. Wow, isn’t that a refreshing change! I feel so much better about the future, don’t you?

Conclusion

Please re-read the quote at the beginning of this article.  It tells the true story by Professor Carroll Quigley, of Georgetown University and Bill Clinton’s mentor.  Quigley was allowed into the archives of the Council on Foreign Relations for two years and wrote his book regarding same…you can still buy a copy of Tragedy and Hope.  As he stated, the citizenry gets angry and “throws the rascals out,” only to get a new set of rascals voted in who will continue with the very same agenda.

Is there any hope for the Republic?  Perhaps, but it would depend on action by the people.  After more than 50 years of watching our nation’s deterioration, I’m not sure there is a lot of hope.  Until the citizenry dumps Dancing with the Stars, American Idol, and their sports and beer, and starts demanding their representatives obey the Constitution and listen to the taxpaying public, nothing will change.  It is the responsibility of the American people to keep these critters in DC in line.  A WWII vet recently told a talk show host that America had become too soft.  What an incredibly true statement.  We need our citizenry to have the chutzpah (guts) to harass and force these politicos to tow the line.  Until we do that, God help us, because we sure aren’t helping ourselves.

Chris Christie secures title as Republican presidential frontrunner: poll

christie

NY Daily News: Republicans are closer than ever to having a frontrunner in the 2016 presidential race, with New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie rising to the top among the GOP contenders.

Christie shines through as the favorite with 24% support among Republicans and GOP-leaning Independents, according to a CNN/ORC International survey released Friday.

Support for the outspoken Republican, who was reelected in November to a second term as governor of the Garden State, jumped from 17% when the last CNN poll was released in September.

Whether or not he will run is the biggest question on the minds of Republicans hoping to take the White House in 2016, since the 51-year-old is touted as the closest thing to a savior the conservative movement will get.

Christie remains demure on his presidential ambitions, saying that only he hopes Washington is watching the success of his policies in New Jersey.

In the new CNN poll, Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul came second with 13% support. His numbers were steady since the last survey result.

Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wisc.), who was Mitt Romney’s Vice Presidential pick in 2012, posted the third highest support at 11%. His popularity took a tumble from the September poll, when 16% named him as their favorite.

Texas Tea Party darling, Sen. Ted Cruz, and Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) were also listed among the top five picks for the Republican presidential race.

Results reflect responses from a telephone survey of 843 American adults from November 18-20.

For the Democrats, former Secretary of State Hillary “What difference does it make?” Clinton dominates as the preferred candidate, with an eye-popping 63% of Democrats saying they would vote Clinton.

Streaking teacher first to be fired under NJ’s new tenure law

BringhurstMark C. Binghurst (Source of photo: The Daily Journal)

Behavior has consequences.

A 5th-grade teacher in New Jersey, who was arrested for lewdness after running naked through an apartment parking lot, became the first successful test case of the state’s new teacher tenure law enabling a speedier firing of errant teachers. In the past, tenure cases had dragged on for a year or more.

Winslow school

Diane D’Amico reports for PressOfAtlanticCity, Dec. 13, 2012, that Mark C. Bringhurst was a fifth-grade teacher at the Winslow Elementary School in Vineland, NJ (photo above), for about eight years, and was its Teacher of the Year for 2011-12.

On March 21, Bringhurst was arrested by Berlin Township police in Camden County and charged with lewdness after running naked through the Greenway Apartments parking lot. According to the police report cited in the case, Bringhurst said it was the second time he had done so, both times on a dare, but he did not expect anyone to see him. The case was heard in municipal court, and in July the charges were amended to “acting in an improper manner” to which Bringhurst pleaded guilty.

The Vineland school district on June 27 notified Bringhurst that tenure charges would be brought before the local board of education, which held a hearing on Oct. 18. In his decision posted on the Department of Education web site Dec. 5, arbitrator Robert C. Gifford said Bringhurst exercised very poor judgment on more than one occasion, and his lack of judgement is not diminished by the fact that the conduct occurred outside of school: “The respondent’s actions are simply not consistent with the conduct that a fifth-grade elementary teacher must display, whether in or out of the classroom.” Gifford concluded that the penalty of dismissal was justifiable and reasonable.

The arbitrator’s decision does not affect Bringhurst’s teaching license or his ability to teach in another district. The decision to revoke his license would be made separately by the state Board of Examiners.

Bringhurst’s attorney, Robert Bowman, said he thought the arbitration process was “fair and expeditious” and “brought resolution in a timely manner.” Representatives of both the state teacher’s union and the school boards association said the new procedure protected Bringhurst’s right of due process while resolving the case in a timely manner. It took less than four months from the time charges were filed with the state.

State Department of Education officials said the case was the first to be handled under the new arbitration system, and there are currently 31 additional active tenure cases statewide.

The binding arbitration system is part of the new state TEACHNJ tenure reform law and was included to make it easier for school districts to terminate tenured teachers.

Prior contested tenure cases had gone through the administrative court system and had often taken a year to resolve. The New Jersey Education Association proposed an arbitration system to make sure tenured teachers could not be arbitrarily fired and would still have the right of due process. Under the new law, signed by Gov. Chris Christie on Aug. 6, a hearing must be held within 45 days of a contested tenure case being assigned.

As of this morning, Mark Bringhurst is still listed as a member of Winslow Elementary School’s faculty.

Hurricane Sandy victim feels used by Obama

Remember how after mega storm Sandy had devastated the East coast, Obama and New Jersey governor Chris Christie, on Oct. 31, 2012, made a big show of touring the storm-damaged areas?

Obama made this promise to New Jersey: “We are here for you, and we will not forget, we will follow up … until you rebuild. We will not quit until this is done. … We are not going to tolerate red tape.”

That was when RINO Chris Christie fell madly in love with the POS, mere days before the 2012 presidential election, although Christie had delivered a speech introducing (and presumably supporting) Mitt Romney at the Republican National Convention.

In Brigantine, N.J., there was a photo-op moment when Obama hugged a storm victim, Donna Vanzant, the owner of North Point Marina that was wiped out by the storm. Official Chief White House Photographer Pete Souza captured the hug in this photo, which was posted on the White House website:

Jim Hoft writes for Gateway Pundit, Nov. 27, 2012, that at the time Obama had promised to get help for Vanzant. But after nearly a month, Vanzant hasn’t received any help. She now feels Obama’s visit and promise were all a show, devoid of substance.

I was very excited and felt warm by the embrace thinking this is really going to happen. I’m going to get the help I need because he promised that. I’ve gotten no help. I’ve gotten nothing but ‘No, you’re not covered for this. No, you’re not covered for that.”

Welcome to the Obama’s Suckas Club, Vanzant!

Meanwhile, NBC4 New York reports that a shocking 800 apartment buildings in New York City are still without heat or power a month after Sandy.
