What Happens in DC, Stays in DC

November 16, 2017

I think you folks back home can appreciate the need to protect the Nation’s Secrets in the Nation’s Capitol Building. The hard working taxpayers should not be burdened with the scandals in the Swamp including Congressmen chasing Interns through offices and around the hallowed statues of Segregationists like Robert Byrd and J. William Fulbright!

The Congressmen sometimes work 20 hours a month and, we all know, all work and no play makes for very dull Congressmen.

Therefore, our esteemed Congressmen established a taxpayer funded slush fund that allows our Congressmen to commit the crime of sexual harassment, pay off anybody who might expose the crime and live happily ever after.

I know, you thought our Congressmen couldn’t accomplish anything just because they couldn’t fix healthcare, cut taxes, cut reckless spending or bring those to justice who traded our uranium to Russia for some magic beans.

Silly you! Our Congressmen not only make laws that hog-tie hard working Americans while quadrupling our healthcare insurance premiums, they also were able to divert tax dollars to that neat little slush fund. So far the fund has paid out fifteen million dollars in hush money. Those fifteen million dollars could have built a Bridge to Nowhere or bought bureaucrats 250 Sport Utility Vehicles to cruise around the Swamp and take two hour lunch breaks.

The latest Gallup Congress Approval Poll stands at 16% but we all know the polls are rigged. My sense is that the number is closer to 7%?

How do you suppose Congress was able to approve that slush fund? Was it approved on an unlit airport tarmac or on the Floor of the United States House of Representatives? How did the Congressional Budget Office markup the slush fund? How did Paul Ryan vote? Mitch McConnell? John McCain? Bob Corker?

Now that this criminal activity has been exposed, what are the chances Congressional Hearings will be held and a Special Prosecutor Appointed?

Congress has been silent while President Trump has been raked over the coals; will you allow this to be swept under the rug? Will you demand to know who was paid off, what for and how much?

I am just one old retired fighter pilot but I am sick and tired of the secrecy, corruption and debauchery that is rampant in the Capitol Building, Cannon Building, Ford Building, Longworth Building, O’Neill Building, Rayburn Building, Russell Senate Office Building, Dirksen Senate Office Building and Hart Senate Office Building.

Congress can investigate General Flynn and President Trump while they thumb their noses at the Constitution!!!! Nobody is accountable in the Swamp? Do you care?

Trump: AMERICA HEADING FOR MASSIVE RECESSION

April 5, 2016

lp

★★Why would Donald Trump say America is heading for a massive recession? The politicians certainly won’t tell you such a thing and neither will the smiley talking heads at CNBC, MSNBC, CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC, PBS & Fox News!

 
We are in big trouble even if we ignore our massive National Debt and Unfunded Obligations that come to over $225 trillion or about a million dollars for every adult in America.

ND
A record 94,610,000 workers are not in the American labor force and the labor force participation rate is at its lowest point in 38 years! Just 62 percent of the U.S. population has a job or is actively seeking one. Of the 245 million documented adults in the US, 123 million don’t have full time jobs. Of the Americans who have jobs, many are underemployed as our good jobs seem to prefer the climate in Mexico, Vietnam, China and Sweden. The Democrats have a solution for our climate ~ MORE TAXES!

 
Our total government spending exceeds $6 trillion which is more than our gross domestic product. In other words, our politicians continue to spend more than we earn. Just government spending on welfare exceeds a trillion bucks as bleeding hearts insist on paying able bodied freeloaders not to work. LBJ and the Democrats declared war on poverty almost 50 years ago and pounded trillions down the rat hole. How’d that work out?

hs
We are blowing over a trillion bucks on education while our children pile up student loans and learn very little. When I attended school a long time ago, America was number one in the world, now we are 30th and dropping. Education should not be about money, it should be about learning! Just like most of our Defense spending has NOTHING to do with defense, most education spending is pure fluff! I submit, students don’t learn better in marble buildings than they do in metal buildings.

fm
During this period of government bailouts and wild money printing, the Trickle Down Economy should be in its glory days but 63% of Americans say that if they had a $500 unexpected expense, they would have to sell something or borrow money to pay it. The median family income has dropped about $5,000 in recent years. Our government punishes our legitimate businesses with the world’s highest taxes, the world’s most burdensome regulations and forced expenses like the world’s highest minimum wage, forced training and forced unionization. The result is as predictable as the sunrise. companies either go bankrupt or move overseas. On top of all this, our government has opened the flood gates to the world’s poor, uneducated, unhealthy huddled masses yearning to jump on the welfare gravy train. It’s called Immigration Reform.

rmr
Don’t worry; all the politicians have been promising to help the middle class for several years!

Maybe the Stock Market will never crash AGAIN and the House of Cards will stand forever? Maybe ISIS and Iran won’t knock out our power grid or our crumbling infrastructure?

Maybe Donald Trump is wrong but you know in your heart he’s right.

Dirty History of McConnell and the RNC

September 3, 2015

TrumpPriebus

I hope one day the average Republican will be as alert as Donald Trump and yours truly. I know the exigencies of life demand most American’s full attention but it has allowed the Republican leaders to run afoul of their responsibilities to the American People. I would prefer that the RNC, Priebus, McConnell and Boehner sign a pledge that THEY will treat all Republican Candidates equal and then fully support the nominee.

The Republican leaders have declared WAR against conservatives and HERE ARE SOME EXAMPLES:

When a conservative was leading in the polls against one of McConnell’s rubber stamp Senators, Thad Cochran of Mississippi, McConnell and a group of Senators including my own Senator, hatched a scheme to persuade black ministers to urge their Democratic congregations to vote in the Republican runoff election. The threat was that if they didn’t vote for Cochran the free stuff they were used to would be cut off. McConnell poured $50,000 into the effort and Cochran was narrowly reelected.

You see, we can’t have extremists nominated because, as Karl Rove says, they can’t be elected! Mitch McConnell was one of only TWO Republican Senators who voted with 100% of the Democrats to keep funding Planned Parenthood and their trafficking in aborted baby body parts. One other senator, Lindsey Graham, failed to vote which essentially was support for the McConnell and Democratic position. I ask you, who are the extremists?

Ken

Then there is one of my favorite conservative Republicans, Ken Cuccinelli. Ken was Attorney General of Virginia when he announced his candidacy for Governor in 2013. In a three way race with a Democrat, Republican and Libertarian, Cuccinelli was narrowly defeated by the Democrat. Conservatives rightfully blame the Republican Governors Association and the Republican National Committee for not putting enough money into the race. The Tea Party claims the establishment sold the Tea Party out again, just as it did during the government shutdown when MODERATE GOP SENATORS DIDN’T HAVE THE GUTS TO STAND AND FIGHT OVER OBAMACARE.

Dede Scozzafava is the Poster Child of Republican Establishment leader’s gross malfeasance. The Republicans in the 23rd Congressional District of New York only had one choice for a candidate who supported Republican values and it was not the Republican nominee or the Democratic nominee.

CochranScozza

Many notable Republicans, including former Vice Presidential nominee Sarah Palin, Republican Governor Tim Pawlenty of Minnesota and former U.S. Senator Fred Thompson, endorsed Conservative Party candidate Doug Hoffman rather than the Republican candidate because they deemed Scozzafava too liberal and ideologically indistinguishable from the Democrat. Scozzafava also drew strong opposition from the Tea Party movement.

Scozzafava voted for same-sex marriage in the New York State Assembly and she had also received an award from a Planned Parenthood affiliate in 2008. Scozzafava’s political positions included support for “card check” legislation, support for federal funding for abortion, support for President Obama’s 2009 stimulus package, and a refusal to rule out support for health care reform that included a “public option.”

Polls had Doug Hoffman in the lead and on a pathway leading to election as Congressman. Hoffman would have voted and caucused with the Republican Party and would have been a valuable conservative voice in the House. This scared the Republican establishment much more than electing the Democrat so they poured a million dollars into Scozzafava’s campaign just hours before she withdrew from the race and endorsed the Democrat. Scozzafave’s name was still on the ballot and the final vote was Democrat-73,137; Conservative-69,553; Republican-8,582.

Influential establishment Republicans have even aligned in groups and PACs like The Main Street Partnership and the Tuesday Group that represent moderate Republicans like Senators McCain, Mark Kirk and Susan Collins along with Dozens of Representatives. There is big money available for tax and spend Republicans and strong support from many deep pockets.

I know many Republicans are shocked that the Democrats get their way even with so-called Republicans controlling the House and Senate. Most Republicans do not watch the liberal news stations but if they did they would be shocked by who the regular guests are. The former National Republican Chairman Michael Steele is employed by MSNBC as a Regular Political Analyst. The Hanoi Songbird, John McCain is also a frequent guest on Lamestreem Media as is Reince Priebus, John Boehner and Mitch McConnell.

Donald Trump knows to what lengths the Establishment Liberal Republicans will go to defeat any conservative in favor of the John McCain’s, Mitt Romney’s and Bush family. The media from A to Z are willing confederates because they all want Liberals in the White House. Fox News is a top ten donor to the Clintons way above big unions. To hedge their bets the media feels more comfortable with a Liberal Republican nominee against a Liberal Democratic nominee. May I remind you that our worst spending spree in history started with George Bush and his Democratic House and Senate?

FOXC

In conclusion, the vast majority of the American People are also known as the Silent Majority. We are also know by another word by Republican Establishment leaders, we are “Extremists” because we expect government to be small and efficient while allowing us to pursue happiness and enjoy freedom to earn a living and support our families as we choose. We may not swear to uphold the Constitution like our politicians do but we will die fighting for our Constitution while our Politicians and Judges thumb their noses at our precious founding document.

I know not what course others may take but as for me, I SUPPORT DONALD TRUMP.

REPUBLICANS, WE HAVE A PROBLEM!

July 7, 2015

~Gold

I know most Republicans are industrious hard working folks who can’t possibly keep up with the devious conniving antics of the Republican Party. If we are to have any possibility of saving the Party of Lincoln and Reagan, we must first become informed about the Liberal Radicalization of Party leaders. I believe about 80% of the GOP members are conservatives who support less taxes, smaller government, the Constitution, secure borders, legal immigration, strong national defense and less regulation of business and industry. I am speaking to the 80% who are being drowned out by the aggressive determined minority.

I hope the Dede Scozzafava election is burned into your memory forever! The special election for Congress in New York’s 23rd District was between Liberal Republican State Assemblywoman Dede Scozzafava, Democrat Bill Owens and Conservative Party candidate Doug Hoffman. Polls showed Doug Hoffman would likely win with support from the TEA Party. The Republican National Committee gave Scozzafava close to a million dollars but a billion dollars would not have saved her campaign. Just three days before the election, Scozzafava dropped out of the race and endorsed the Democrat although her name remained on the ballot. The final vote tally was 48.3% for the Democrat, 46% for Hoffman and 5.7% for Scozzafava. The million dollars from the RNC and Scozzafava engineered the defeat for the conservative.

Dede Scozzafava announced that she would not run for re-election to the State Assembly in the 2010 election cycle and endorsed the Democratic nominee Brian McGrath. McGrath, however, lost the election and Scozzafava was succeeded by a Republican. Scozzafava was then appointed New York Deputy Secretary of State for Local Government by Democratic Governor Andrew M. Cuomo. Hoffman, on the other hand, is public enemy number one to the RNC.

I think it is important for Republicans to know how our money is spent by our Liberal Republican leaders including John Boehner, Mitch McConnell, John McCain, Lindsey Graham, Eric Cantor, Lisa Murkowski, Mitt Romney, Kit Bond, Peter King, Jeb Bush, Chris Christie, Chuck Hagel and many more. At least Chuck Hagel had the decency to officially switch parties.

Let me take you back to the Virginia Governor’s race of 2013. Three candidates appeared on the ballot, Republican Ken Cuccinelli, the Attorney General of Virginia; Democrat Terry McAuliffe, former Chairman of the Democratic National Committee; and Libertarian Robert Sarvis, a lawyer and businessman. I worked hard to get Cuccinelli elected; we follow each other on Twitter. Cuccinelli should have been elected but lost by 2.5% of the vote. Are you strong enough to understand the workings deep down in the bowls of the Republican Party?

Lieutenant Governor Bill Bolling made a deal with Governor McDonnell whereby Bolling would run for re-election as lieutenant governor in 2009, enabling McDonnell to run for governor without a primary, in exchange for McDonnell’s support in 2013. After the 2009 election, Bolling made no secret of his intention to run for governor in 2013, while Attorney General of Virginia Ken Cuccinelli openly stated that he was considering three options: a run for re-election as attorney general, running for the U.S. Senate in 2014, and running for governor in 2013. Cuccinelli announced to colleagues on December 1, 2011, that he was indeed running for governor. Bolling responded on the same day that he was disappointed that Cuccinelli decided to challenge him (the very idea!).

Bolling, who was polling poorly against Cuccinelli, withdrew from the race on November 28, 2012. He ruled out running for another term as Lieutenant Governor and refused to endorse Cuccinelli. Bolling considered running as an independent, but decided against it. Bolling also rejected the possibility of a write-in campaign. Cuccinelli was clearly the choice of the Tea Party but got very little help from the Republican Party. Still, Cuccinelli only lost by a tiny margin even with no GOP support. The Independent received 6.5% of the vote. That is often the consequence Independent candidates have, they ensure victory for Democrats. Thanks to the RNC, the Republican Party lost a Governor’s seat.

Cuccinelli was a great public servant worthy of support from the RNC. He advocated for a wrongfully convicted man who served 27 years in prison and then hired him to work in the AG’s Office. He fought sex trafficking and fought to preserve Virginia’s anti-sodomy law saying repeal “threatens to undo convictions of child predators that were obtained under this law after 2003.” Cuccinelli said the law was important for prosecutors to be able to “obtain felony charges against adults who commit or solicit this sex act with minors,” and noted that the law “is not – and cannot be — used against consenting adults acting in private.” Of course, the U.S. Supreme Court denied Cuccinelli’s appeal.

Then there is Ted Cruz. The Republican Primary for U.S. Senator in Texas was something else! Declared Candidates were Glenn Addison, funeral home owner; Joe Agris, plastic surgeon; Curt Cleaver, owner of a hotel management company; Ted Cruz, former State Solicitor General; David Dewhurst, Texas Lieutenant Governor; Ben Gambini; Charles Holcomb, retired judge; Craig James, sports commentator and former professional football player; Tom Leppert, former mayor of Dallas; and Lela Pittenger, mediator.

Several withdrew, Elizabeth Ames Jones, Florence Shapiro, Michael Williams and Roger Williams.

Some well known names declined to run including Kay Bailey Hutchison, incumbent U.S. senator; Robert Paul, doctor and son of Ron Paul; Ron Paul himself, U.S. Representative and Dan Patrick, Texas state senator.

So here is how the race of the decade shaped up, David Dewhurst was the darling of the Republican establishment. He was endorsed by Governor Rick Perry, Mike Huckabee, most state organizations and several Liberal Newspapers. Ted Cruz was endorsed by Sarah Palin. Of course, I also did what I could for Ted Cruz and still do, we followed each other on Twitter from the beginning when Cruz was polling just 4%. The Primary ended up with David Dewhurst 44.6%, Ted Cruz 34.2% and the rest from 13% on down. The runoff resulted in 56.8% for Cruz and Ted cruised to a 56.5% win in the General Election. Cruz’s election was described by the Washington Post as “the biggest upset of 2012 . . . a true grassroots victory against very long odds.”

Yes fellow Republicans, miracles do happen!

We can’t forget Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky. Rand’s Primary opponent was the darling of Republican Elites Trey Grayson, Kentucky Secretary of State. Senator Jim Bunning decided not to seek reelection because his poll numbers were so low. Grayson garnered endorsements from Senator Mitch McConnell, former Vice President Dick Cheney, former presidential hopeful Rudy Giuliani, Senator Rick Santorum, Representative Hal Rogers, and several members of the Kentucky State Legislature. Sarah Palin endorsed Rand Paul and, of course, I worked hard to get him elected against the wishes of my Kentucky relatives.

Rand Paul defeated Grayson 58.8% to 35.4%. Even with VERY LITTLE GOP support, Rand Paul won the General Election with 55.7% of the vote.

During the 2014 Senate election, Rand Paul was visibly embarrassed to have supported Mitch McConnell for re-election against a conservative challenger Matt Bevin. Bevin was endorsed by the conservative Madison Project, the Senate Conservatives Fund and conservative talk radio hosts Mark Levin and Glenn Beck. In a radio interview posted to YouTube, the conservative freshman was asked by an incredulous Glenn Beck why he’s endorsing the Senate Republican leader. After an awkward pause, Paul tried to change the subject. “Um … I’m here in Texas today to endorse Don Huffines,” he said. Beck burst into laughter. Paul laughed with him, and then took a stab at answering the question. But he couldn’t muster up a single nice thing to say about his fellow Kentuckian and leader of his party. “Uhh, because he asked me,” Paul said. “He asked me when there was nobody else in the race and I said yes.” I think maybe Paul did it to prove he does not hold a grudge against McConnell for endorsing his opponent? After trashing Matt Bevin, McConnell finally endorsed him for Governor of Kentucky this year.

The likes of Mitch McConnell, John Boehner and Reince Priebus have literally declared war against conservatives by creating well funded PACs to support liberal Republicans. McConnell chipped in $50,000 to help Thad Cochran defeat a conservative Republican challenger. Several other Senators chipped in including my own Senator John Boozman. That wasn’t enough, the Republican leaders then sought black Democratic ministers to urge their church members to crossover and vote in the Republican Primary for Thad Cochran so they could continue to receive FREE STUFF! Still, in the primary Chris McDaniel defeated Cochran 49.5% to 49% with Thomas Cary receiving 1.5%. In the runoff election with some help from Democrats, Cochran won 51% to 49%. Clearly the Republican leaders dislike TEA Party Conservatives much more than Democrats. Almost $18 million was spent during the Primary Election in tiny Mississippi.

I could go on and on with races like Liberal Republican Lamar Alexander’s race in Tennessee. Even Mike Huckabee’s most loyal army went crazy when Huckabee indorsed Lamar. In December 2012, Alexander announced he would be seeking re-election to a third Senate term in 2014. Alexander’s campaign had a war chest of $3.1 million in cash going into his 2014 re-election bid.
In an August 2013 letter to Alexander signed by over twenty Tennessee tea-party groups, the groups called on Alexander to retire from the Senate in 2014, or face a primary challenge. The letter stated: “During your tenure in the Senate we have no doubt that you voted in a way which you felt was appropriate. Unfortunately, our great nation can no longer afford compromise and bipartisanship, two traits for which you have become famous. America faces serious challenges and needs policymakers who will defend conservative values, not work with those who are actively undermining those values.”

Although Alexander was initially thought to be vulnerable to a primary challenge from the right, he worked to avoid this and ultimately did not face a high-profile challenger. He declared his intention to run early, quickly won the endorsement of Governor Bill Haslam, every living former Tennessee Republican Party Chairman and the state’s Republican congressional delegation. He also raised a large amount of money and worked to avoid the mistakes of ousted Senators Bob Bennett and Richard Lugar by trying to stay in touch with his constituents, especially in East Tennessee. Moreover, out-of-state conservative organizations such as the Senate Conservatives Fund made little effort to defeat Alexander.
Alexander won the Republican primary, defeating Tennessee Representative Joe Carr, though he recorded the lowest winning percentage (49.7%) and lowest margin of victory ever in a primary for a Republican U.S. Senator from Tennessee. Carr won a larger percentage of the vote than the previous 11 challengers to sitting Republican U.S. Senators in Tennessee history combined.

I wonder if you have learned ANYTHING about Mike Huckabee yet? If trying to reign in Democrats wasn’t hard enough, we now have to purge these radicalized Liberal Republicans!

Can you imagine what the Republican Party could do if it embraced the TEA Party instead of rejecting it? I am here to tell you the TEA Party is not the enemy of the GOP, the TEA Party is the enemy of Liberalism, Big Government, Socialism, over taxing, wasteful spending, amnesty for illegal aliens, unsecure borders, weak national defense, giving away our sovereignty, taking guns away from law abiding citizens, removing God from our culture, abortion on demand, Obamacare, lifetime welfare for able bodied people and dumbing down and indoctrinating our children.

We want America to be competitive again instead of shipping our jobs and our factories overseas. America cannot compete because our government has hog tied our industry with the highest taxes in the world, tons of regulations, minimum wages ten times higher than MOST of the world and laws that favor unions and importers. Add the 30 million illegal aliens taking our jobs and we have a recipe for destroying the American Dream. Unemployment for black male teens in Chicago is 94% while Mayor Rahm Emanuel is giving city intern jobs to illegal aliens.

The totality of the insanity gripping my once great country is mind boggling! America is teetering on the brink of collapse and our Republican leaders are too lazy to even fiddle! I doubt that my tiny voice crying in the wilderness will have any appreciable effect but I simply cannot set on my thumbs and keep silent.

When Ted Curz fought against raising the debt ceiling, Republican leaders criticized him for SHUTTING DOWN THE GOVERNMENT. Somebody needs to shut down about 50% of the government if we are to have any chance of digging out of our black hole.

When Donald Trump exposed the atrocity that is ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION, the Republican leader’s shrill twisted rhetoric could be heard as far away as the old Belgian Congo.

Mayday, mayday, mayday!
