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

Rate this post

“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.

  1. So true. While repubs in charge is nice, once they hit DC things change (for most). And while so many depend upon the government, they’ll scream if anything gets cut off. But I’ll try to remain optimistic that the next two years can show some improvement. Hopefully!

     
  2. Well Stated! I was happy on election night, but then woke up with a reality hangover. Until Americans are not afraid to both seek out and face the truth, and stand up, we’ll stay on the same path.

     
  3. Don’t you people like anybody?
    That’s all you seem to do is complain
    Nothing is ever good
    Move out of America…see if it’s greener on the other side
    And I’ll tell you I just can’t even follow you anymore too ugly are your criticisms
    If your icon is the image of Jesus you should consider changing it for you have absolutely nothing in common
    Good-Bye…

     
    • Gosh, hocus, I did like *you* — until you went all postal on us. 😀

       
    • hocuspocus, we’re doing the job the mainstream media refuses to do: question authority. Everyone on this site is thrilled with Tuesday’s results, however we realize we still have a lot of work to do.

       
    • Sure, we like RINOs better than leftist Democrats, but they’re still RINOs…

       
    • hocuspocus13,
      You wrote,”If your icon is the image of Jesus you should consider changing it for you have absolutely nothing in common.” Dr. E did not respond to you, nor has any other commenter picked this up. I was puzzled by that because Dr. E’s gravatar is of St. Michael the Archangel, or haven’t you noticed the wings?
      You embedded a link to your blog in your alias hocuspocus13. So I went to your blog hocuspocus13.wordpress.com. Surprise, surprise! You’re a witch satanist! —

      ROFLMAO

       
      • Good grief. Thank you for this astonishing info, huntingfororcs.
        St. Michael, the Archangel,
        defend us in battle.
        Be our protection
        against the wickedness and snares of the Devil.
        May God rebuke him, we humbly pray.
        And do thou,
        oh Prince of the Heavenly Host,
        by the power of God,
        cast into Hell,
        Satan and all the other evil spirits
        who prowl about the world,
        seeking the ruin of souls.
        Amen.

         
      • Good catch, huntingfororcs!

         
      • hunting, good catch. Can’t believe I didn’t catch that. Her comment must have led me to an extremely early eye roll. LOL

         
    • Hokey, that “What kind of a Christian are you?” trick is so old and stale, I never bother to bat an eyelash at it. And the biggest reason I don’t listen is that it always comes from people who are hostile to God and hostile to Christians.
      In short Hokey, you bore me. Don’t let the door hit you on the butt on your way out.

    • Hey, hocus, you owe us an apology, or haven’t you read the news of John Boehner’s betrayal:

  4. Excellent analysis, Kelleigh. The quote by Carroll Quigley and the information you provided about NJ Gov. Chris Christie are sobering.
    For those who haven’t read or have forgotten it, I recommend Prof. Angelo Codevilla’s 2010 article on America’s bi-partisan ruling class:
    https://fellowshipoftheminds.com/2010/07/19/americas-bipartisan-ruling-class-vs-the-people/

     
  5. To put it a simply as possible,what we’re getting is far,FAR from ideal,but in reality,ANY improvement is better than what we had,and there really is no way to magically “fix” everything in one Election. The best we can hope for is AN improvement,ANY improvement,followed by another improvement,etc. etc. until we work the career politicians and corruption out of the system,or as much so as is possible.
    The comments saying both parties should be nearly the same,bringing the same overall results,regardless of which party is in power-okay,I can give that slight credibility, but only if everything is on solid ground and good for America to start with. In OUR case,all this logic would give us is an ongoing corrupt cesspool of Constitutional and ungodly violations of our rights,with a different signature at the bottom of the page. In MY Opinion.

     
  6. Everyone wants a hero. As old Israel said, GIVE US A KING! Sadly, there are no heroes. The only hope is the American people, and as I stated in my last paragraphs, if WE THE PEOPLE get up off our backsides and keep these congress criminals on the right track, we may have a chance. This means we have to work…we have to call and write and be on them like fleas on a dog’s back…truly, it’s up to us…because reality is, both parties have the same agenda…

     
    • I love your reply Kelleigh! Remember in history that, when Lincoln was informed that the Civil War battle of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, was unfolding, and that there was a HUGE worry about one of his newest (of many and varied) commanders of the Army of the Potomac being up to the task….the Pennsylvanian, Meade….he said, “Well, maybe he’ll fight all the harder on his own dung heap.”
      Here we are…all thrown upon the dung heap…we’ve finally been shown a little light beyond Harry Reid’s grip…maybe we can finally represent our OWN agendas to Washington….to the president…to our reps…..(this is the “fighting harder on our own dung heap part—we finally “made it” to the “heap,” and now maybe we’ll fight harder to put it in an order more to our liking). Nothing is perfect, our electorate is not perfect, the people we elect are not perfect…but, by God…a HUGE message was delivered to Washington, DC, by the ONLY thing that matters in communicating with that place–the ballot box. It’s a START.

       
  7. Excellent post, Kelleigh! We still have a long way to go, but at least some progress has been made.

     
  8. One of the stated goals of the communist party:
    “we will infiltrate and control one OR BOTH political parties in America”
    We still have a lot of housecleaning yet to do…

     
  9. The main goal recently of the liberal communists in the Democratic Party in the U.S. Senate, along with Obama, has been to try and outlaw gun ownership in the USA. President Obama even stated that he wants to see guns removed from the public like Australia has done (the total removal of all guns from the law abiding public). This does not sit well with Americans and our Second Anendment. Seeing that so many anti-gun Senators lost their seats in the U.S. Senate (7 of them), it was a message to the liberal communists in the U.S. Senate that Americans have no intention of ever being disarmed by a bunch of radical communists.

     
  10. Safe? No, I never felt safe. 😀

     
  11. Democrats want to take the country over the cliff at 100 M.P.H. . Republicans want to do the same at a slower speed . What’s the difference ? The destination is still the same

     
    • Slower is better than quicker, because slower means there’s more time and opportunity for citizen patriots to expose, oppose, and reverse their America-destroying agenda.

       
      • Hi Doc , do you truly believe in your heart that ” Mitch the capital bit@c ” and ” Boehner the boner ” are going to succeed in anything ? You are too smart for that . That would be like believing in the tooth fairy and the Easter bunny ……………………………….
        The moocher class damn near out number the producers now . Even the threat of the republicans taking away a freebie or two would drive the moochers to the polls en-masse while the producers are busy working for their free ride.

         
        • japoa, are you waving a white flag? No doubt about those 2 knuckleheads, but hey maybe we gummed up the works a bit. Have to keep going and eventually things will have to get ugly. Either we win, or they do. Been saying that for years.
          Sheesh take a few days to breath it could have went the other way Tuesday. 🙂

           
          • Steve , those two knuckleheads are running the debate in their respective
            positions . If they are ” insiders ” we don’t stand a chance . I am just being realistic . They will talk the talk but won’t dare walk the walk . We shall see though , have a good day dude

             
        • japoa,
          What I actually said was that the lesser of two evils (GOP) is still better than the GREATER of two evils (Dems), and that we conservatives will have to watch the Repubs like a hawk and hold their feet to the fire.
          The above does NOT mean that I trust McConnell (whom I quite loathe) or Boehner. As you observed, I’m not that naive. LOL

           
  12. Snuffy — One of the stated goals of the communist party: “we will infiltrate and control one OR BOTH political parties in America”
    Indeed. So what do Americans need to do? CONSPIRE.
    Call it what you will, but true Americans need to conspire in secret to eliminate Communists through all means available and to infiltrate and control all political parties in the USA.
    Communists are arrogant, lazy, psychopathic, and dumb.
    Real Americans are hard-working, clever, patient, and inventive.
    Imagine the small time it would take for Real Americans to destroy the Communists in the USA using their natural skills just by sheer force of a “Conspiracy of Good”.

     
  13. Richard Raymond

    This is a great post especially the opening quote form Carroll Quigley.
    Should do more like it, following the same line of information.
    This is why I have ceased to vote. Like I believe It was George Wallace who said sometime in the 60’s ” There’s not a dime’s worth of difference between the parties”
    There are overarching powers who really decide policy and subvert
    democracy, the will of the people and control not only all parties but
    very much more.
    Doubt it? Research Tragedy and Hope in depth.

     
    • Raymond, there *is* a difference between the two parties, albeit the differences are not as big as we would like. Here’s one:
      Pres. George W. Bush, flawed as he is, signed into law the Born Alive Infants Protection Act — which then Illinois state senator Barack Obama 3 times voted against. (That means Obama 3x voted for infanticide.) Were it not for the Act, who knows how many babies who survived a barbaric but botched 3rd-trimester late-term abortion, would have been left in a room to slowly die of starvation and dehydration. Ann Barnhardt, to whom you refer us, is a devout Catholic. Ask her if that’s what she wants.
      That there are these differences make the GOP the lesser of two evils — and I’ll take that any day, over the Democratic Party, the GREATER of two evils.
      Your attitude only leads to a do-nothing don’t-vote APATHY, to which you yourself admit. I have been blogging every day, every week, every month for 6+ years — to inform and encourage conservatives. No thanks to you, the rest of us did vote on Nov. 4, and succeeded in removing the Democrats from control of the House and Senate and of many state governorships as well. We now have a chance to at least slow down what the demonic Democrats have been doing.
      It is now up to us, to hold the Republicans’ feet to the fire. Instead of doing nothing except spread your message of despair — which is most unChristian, for despair is of the Devil — roll up your sleeves and join us!

    Soft, my ass, how about stone corrupt!

     
  15. Richard Raymond

    Only hope widespread repentance, prayer, fasting and Divine intervention!

     
  16. Richard Raymond

    I hate to be negative especially repeatedly but this post from Ann Barnhardt kinda sums it up: https://www.barnhardt.biz/2014/11/05/this-is-what-hope-looks-like/

     
    • Richard, I just read Ann’s post and I think the solutions at the bottom are probably spot on. Only when the populace finally, if ever have had enough to resort to such extreme actions will this country ever have a chance to be what it was supposed to be.
      Haven’t read Ann in a while, and man she is depressing. I think she’s gone round the bend if she’s really still living in a van.
      With that being said, as Dr. Eowyn said above, doing nothing as you have decided to do plays right into the devil’s hands. I’ve been manning the walls with the good Doc for the last 6 years and if it wasn’t for citizen bloggers out here, I would really hate to see how much more damage would have been done with the media’s complicity.
      We’d probably be in camps by now.
      Praying is always a good first option, but getting off your ass and helping those who are fighting evil would help too.
      Steve.
