Spending Bill Betrayal by Establishment Republicans Confirms Contempt for Base

Elephantmary
The Dead Elephant Party appears intent on forcing the rest of us down its suicidal path.

“Senate Democrats on Friday boasted that they successfully managed to get just about everything they wanted in a massive spending and tax cut bill, despite being the minority party in both the House and Senate,” the Washington Examiner reported Friday. The total seeming abdication by majority Republicans on the omnibus spending bill has conservative voters wondering what difference it made entrusting the GOP with political power last November.

It also makes them wonder why Paul Ryan was crowned with the speakership, especially when warnings about his subversive positions on open borders pathway to citizenship immigration and the importation of Islamists of unknowable intent were clearly documented.

It’s hardly a surprise to find the bill was crafted in secret by a handful of elite congressional insiders taking their cues from lobbyists. Or that Obama called Ryan afterward to thank him.

It also shouldn’t be a surprise – at least to those of us who’ve kept our eyes open – the majority of Republicans voted to maintain funding for treasonous “sanctuary cities” and abortions, but just couldn’t find it within their power to overturn a Chuck Schumer provision that’s been on the books since 1993 not allowing funding to process applications for individual relief for citizens with ‘firearms disabilities.” Even if you have an outstanding record of being a peaceable and productive member of society, our “rulers” demand all “prohibited person” gun bans be permanent.

Do you think any gun lobby groups will downgrade “A” ratings because of any of this? Or is it more likely the feel-good con job that ensures establishment access will be ramped up to keep those donations coming?

What we’re told is Republicans couldn’t allow the government to shut down, because Obama and the Democrats and the media would blame them. They’re apparently incapable of countering with the truth that it would be Obama and the Democrats blocking the spending bill and shutting down the government because they didn’t get everything they demanded.

At least that’s the excuse we’re expected to swallow whole.

“So it’s not all Republican fears. It’s not all Republican caving. A lot of it is Republican fealty and loyalty to some of their donors,” Rush Limbaugh told his listeners. “There was never a battle. None of this was opposed. The Republican Party didn’t stand up to any of it, and the die has been cast for a long time on this.”

“Who else are they going to vote for?” the late Lee Atwater, former head of the Republican National Committee, is reputed to have asked about conservatives, relying on “lesser of two evils” voter desperation and fear. Even now we see it among some of the more gutless “pragmatists,” who sound the false alarm that if Hillary wins the presidency we can kiss the Second Amendment and our guns goodbye.

That just means they personally are prepared to surrender, and speaks more of their character than it does of anything else.  Some of us do not consider the “popularity contest” winner the last word on our unalienable rights, and will not go gentle into that good night.

“What difference does it make?” Hillary notoriously asked in the Benghazi hearings. The absolute abdication of principle and betrayal of oaths by the Republicans once more brings that question to the fore, but this time in the context of an old admission from one of Bill Clinton’s ideological mentors.

“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,” Georgetown University professor Carroll Quigley advocated.

“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.”

Here’s the roll call for the House and for the Senate.

How did your “servants” vote?

Kurt Russell in “Tombstone” asks the essential question each of us must answer:

“Are you going to do something or just stand there and bleed?”

  1. The GREAT Lie! It’s not the “lessor of TWO evils” VOTE Libertarian don’t waste your vote on the same coin. Throw the coin out and vote for REAL change and lesser government!

    1. The only promise that Americans have in the future comes from Trump and/or Cruz. Both are Patriots and both are Americans tried and true. How many of you know that Trump, unlike the other candidate hopefuls is neither asking for or taking campaign contributions. This man wants no obligations to any special interest groups. Also, he has stated that, like JFK, he will take no compensation for his services. Both the lifetime parasites who are supposed to represent us in the government and those who inhabit the corrupt halls Corporate America are afraid of Mr. Trump and/or Mr. Cruz.. The people, thankfully seem to know both of the great men have their welfare and the welfare of our once great nation as his only goal.

      1. I will not vote for Trump as I do not trust him. He has the kind of personality that if things do not go his way he is likely to switch parties. Although at this point I wonder if that patters as the Republicans seem to pose absolutely no opposition to the Democrats as evidenced by the House vote on the Budget.

        1. The media is attacking Trump, the Democrats are attacking Trump and the Republicans are attacking Trump. What more do you need to make up your mind? I want someone these corrupt scum are afraid of, and that is Trump and he has had it with the attacks on America coming from within, especially the White House.

        2. My concern with Trump is his past track record of supporting the Demos and Hillory Guess I’m gonna go with Cruz. Will support either that is nominated tho..

        3. @airborne

          you may be rigth in your assumption..BUT…Trump is not a politician…and can you honestly say that who ever YOU voted for in the past has NOT lied to you…and they will never change parties…unless it helps THEM…..this country is on its last legs….most will go out on their knees….I will go out standing tall…imho….Semper Fi

      2. Ted Cruz is bought and paid for many times over by the Jewish lobbies, Heidi is a honcho at Goldman Sachs, and Ted met privately with Sheldon Adelson for two hours following an AIPAC speech. We can only imagine what they discussed. Trump’s family has converted to Judaism + do you think you can become a major Manhattan real estate tycoon without having made your peace with the Jews? Trump has no idea what the Constitution, Bill of Rights or Rule of Law are.

        1. I agree with you and soon we will see his true intentions! Remember Perot? This man is a Clinton Operative and all this distraction of the masses is to get the heat off Hillary so she can be our next Tyrr… Errr President!

    2. The problem with your solution..is that you are voting PARTY AGAIN! That’s what got us into this crap in the first place…..I vote for the man, and YES I SAID ‘MAN’, if we could get one we believe in, the closest in my opinion is Ted Cruz….I like what Trump has to say, but not sure I trust him?

      1. Ted Nugent, if it has to be a Ted. All those running for POTUS have no clue of their constitutional duties or limits.

    3. The Great Lie is Right – The Great Lie and Betrayal from the Republican Party to the American People. The Republican Party is Dead – DOA! Now, We as We American Patriots and Constitutional Must Make a Decision Life Never Before. First, If the Republican Party is Dead and No Longer Serves America, then the Debates are All MANIPULATE LIES. We Must Clean Out These Parties – Get Rid of the Dead Weight and Good Ole Boys and Take America Back. Mission Possible – We Must Remove Obama From Our White House Now – How Will We Accomplish this – Not be more talk and talk – Enough Talk – America is in a Revolution as We Speak and We Must Take Revolutionary Measures “For America – Within Our Constitution?” We Must Come Together as ‘LEADERS FOR WE ARE THE LEADERS SO OPEN YOUR EYES AND BE THE LEADERS AND TAKE BACK OUR GREAT NATION NOW! CONTACT ALL THE COMMANDERS AND GENERALS WHO WERE PURGED BY OBAMA – DO NOT WAIT. ALSO GO TO: http://WWW.CONSTITUTIONALACCOUNTABILITYCOALTION.COM – Rhoda Gelman

  2. David, you write:

    Do you think any gun lobby groups will downgrade “A” ratings because of any of this? Or is it more likely the feel-good con job that ensures establishment access will be ramped up to keep those donations coming?

    Maybe or maybe not, but one of my new goto sites is the Conservative Review. See how Dave Brat is rated. You might find their resources helpful from time to time.

    Excellent blog post; I hope this all gets lots of eyeballs and comments.

    House leadership blocked all riders on issues most important to conservatives across the country. The president is now in the clear for the most dangerous year of his presidency to promote more amnesty, release countless numbers of criminals, and take executive action on energy and gun regulations without fear of congressional retribution. It exposes Paul Ryan as a protégée of the John Boehner school of big government. Conservatives were promised more.

    How ironic that this year began with a budget betrayal and a fight over Speaker John Boehner in January. Now we have a new Speaker but the same terminally ill GOP conference that is systemically flawed from top to bottom.

    1. Agree on all points. And would add, at this juncture the American people are scared of their own shadows.So ponder this ? Boston was kids that we had more than a years warning or advanced notice from the Russians and supposedly the most advanced systems in the world did not follow thru and watch them 24/7 and avoid that fiasco. It was allowed to happen ! Now we have had Berdoo and the woman was openly and clearly a jihadi and CIA nor FBI or Homeland security bothered to vet her properly or the guy either, who was openly on line saying clearly his intentions. So both could have easily been stopped and completely avoided but were not. several points things are clearly apparent and valid questions that need to be asked and pondered .

      1. At the current level of fear and hype about 2 shooters (which is not a massive attack), If we were to have an actual serious attack or perhaps several smaller attacks inside CONTUS, in say 3 cities and each caused maybe 1000 casualties, that would be plenty of reason to install martial law and the majority of people would beg for it out of the fear that has been ramped up.

      2. All of the excessive spying on our own citizens has not stopped any events or bad acts and only served the current regime to have an ever greater grasp/control on the citizens and to use said info against them, in various ways as we have seen via IRS and other agencies of the government that are way past out of control ! How is it possible that veterans and actual patriots can be called potential terrorist and spied on while real terrorist like this woman openly comes and does what she did ? Seems to me anybody that believes any of this BS is beyond a fool !

      3. If these events were not allowed to happen then we are seeing incompetence and political schemes on a scale that should deeply concern every person in this country for good reason ! None of what I am describing and pointing out is any form of a conspiracy theory, it is facts and already taken place and is still all in motion as we speak. Either scenario of incompetence, political schemes or whatever is a disaster for all of us that is ongoing and in motion. It is all simply control mechanisms created to control YOU ! It does not natter to me which scenario is the most accurate as both are way past whacked and illegal and harmful. I am convinced it is all various test and stimuli to push us to martial law a bit at a time . That seems beyond obvious given the events and insane circumstances taking place here in USSA today ! Much more common sense at my site for free !

      1. I agree with you wholeheartedly and it amazes me that the American people act just exactly as the early settlers did tolerating the British king’s ongoing abuses against them. It seems that people keep suffering such abuses and as time goes by they get more and more apathetic. This I believe is cause for alarm because the vast majority of Americans don’t realize that America has been hijacked by a group of traitors who are relentless in their pursuit of more and more power and wealth. I just keep wondering where it’s all going to end….will the people re-act as the early settlers did or will they continue being lulled into a false sense of security.

        1. I agree it is likely impossible to know how it will all play out. But we can remain aware and vigilant of the many illusions that have been created for all of us. That is the critical take away and understanding. The illusions are the control mechanisms and they are many ! Here is my take on how it will likely play out.

          Right now we are seeing many of the illusions break down because they are lies and lies have a way of eventually disproving themselves given enough time. The world economy as well as here in our country is nothing but a giant illusion based on cyber dollars that have been created in the trillions. The new spending bill was not funded with actual dollars of any real value, but cyber dollars that are really future debt. As we see more and more unravelling of this shell game we will also see more and ever grander lies and schemes to try and keep it all alive. Problem is many people have awoken and see the lies and distortions for what they are, illusions to control people. Obamacare is the best example of the illusions currently. It was created of lies, obfuscation and distortions. It has nothing at ll to do with anybody’s actual health care and is simply a giant control mechanism and tax scheme. As it continues to disentegrate it will become much more obvious to those that cannot or do not see the scam for what it is , to recognize they have been screwed royally ! And slowly we are seeing more people wake up and rec9ognize the destruction that the current regime has created. Much of which has NOT played out yet , but is still in motion and will play out. So we will see outlier events going forward in conjunction with the existing dynamics already in place, that will bring it all to a head ! I have long realized that simply our debt , which can never be repaid, can be manipulated by the control freaks in both political parties as if it does not matter ? But of course it does and will one day bite us in the ass in a very harsh way.

          Most people do not take the time to understand the dynamics already in play and willingly let the control freaks we call government, do whatever they please assuming or believing that our so-called government is working on their behalf and for their benefit ? This is the grandest illusions of all now. The simple truth is that the control freaks have created a giant mess that is actually quite out of control on many levels.

          Racial issues and and division/animus are at an all time high in my lifetime and all caused by our own government deliberately

          The economy world wide is collapsing and USD is on its way out as the only world reserve currency. That has been gaining momentum for years now by Russia, China and others intent on changing that paradigm.

          World geopolitical events are well past a mess especially in the middle east. all created by horrific policies of our own government.

          We are all seeing the many lies and illegal acts of our own government and this completely undermines any and all confidence in that same government. Fast and Furious, Bengahzi, Libya, Iran nuke deal, use of IRS and many other fed agencies against our own people as a weapon of intimidation and coercion. and now it is clear that even real terrorist are only sought out selectively to suit the maniacs we call government while our own citizens, to include veterans and other actual patriots are claimed to be potential terror threats ? As well wide open borders ! A sort of selective enforcement of the laws and rationale to suit political purposes, while people are dying from this madness ! So the handwriting is on the wall and many more are realizing they have been complacent, apathetic and naive ! As well as a bit lazy.

          The outcome will depend on two things ? How many more wake up and face what is happening in this country and the fact that our government has been hijacked by elitist maniacs of various description and purpose. And how the many potential outlier events play out going forward !

          The best approach is to remain aware , vigilant, informed , healthy , well trained out and super fit ! That is the opposite of fear and their is no reason to live in fear if you actually understand all of the above !

  3. I don’t see how any of this is very revealing. Anyone who wasn’t politically blind during the previous administration already knows the right wing and the left wing are on the same bird flying us straight to hell. Bush diced our Fourth Amendment rights with the Patriot Act, and added to the obesity of the government by founding DHS, creating the largest increase in government in fifty years.

    Even before that, Reagan was perfectly fine with allowing the Second Amendment to be butchered with even stricter regulations on firearms.

    I’ll just leave this quote right here: “If voting changed anything, they’d make it illegal.” – Emma Goldman

  4. I think the GOPe once again gave the finger to those that elected them.I suspect that Ryan and McConnell did it to show Conservatives that they have no say, There is one party in Washington and that is the Progressive elite. I am not sure what is to be done but, I will withdraw all support for the Republican party.I fear Quigley is dangerously close to reality.

  5. Gary Lloyd — ‘When the government’s boot is on your throat, whether it is a left boot or a right boot is of no consequence.’

    1. Once again we are sold a bill of goods by the RINOs! We no longer have a need for a two party system I guess. Obama can do whatever he wants and no one has the guts to try and stop him! Ryan played us all like a fine guitar. We now have a dictator in the White House who is above the law and has all the right people in all the right positions. America is doomed and we all have been lied to repeatedly. I sure hope there is a chance to recover from this, if there is even an election next year, I think not!

    2. Amen to that! I have used that quote often over the years. And that has been my guiding light in all I do. I care not whether the dictatorship is run by a “conservative” or a “liberal.” I don’t want to live under a dictatorship, of any kind.

  6. Once again “We the People” are shown the door and stepped on. AWAKEN AMERICA, the progressive movement towards Fascism is upon us. If you have any sense you can see that our efforts thus far have failed us. What to do, I say fight the politicos in their arena or we will be fighting their agents in OUR streets. We must engage today, join your local committee and affect change or die. AWAKEN AMERICA. AWAKEN TODAY!

      1. Hi Stewart: you show a red asterisk next to the word ‘marked’ and one other asterisk next to the word ‘comment’. You should also have a red asterisk next to the name box and another next to the email box. It’s a pain in the arse for us lesser-smart peoples to figure things out the hard way – trial and error.

  8. The GOP should be replaced with a TEA PARTY or US CONSTITUTIONAL PARTY. It is apparent that the GOP, except for rhetoric speeches, are exactly the same as the liberal progressive Democratic Party!! Just think several years ago Paul Ryan was considered a conservative fiscal Republican with some great ideas to control Congressional spending & reduce the US Deficit over a 7-10 year period. Once in a position of Congressional power he becomes a RINO like 80-90% of the GOP in Congress!! 75% of all social programs should be scrapped & discontinued. Also Congressional salaries should be cut by 50% & 60% of their staffing removed. The TSA should revert back to the private sector control & expense whereby safety has federal & state guidelines but users of the system(s) is paid solely by those users whether it be by air or rail. The only expenses the federal government should have is direct overhead costs for law enforcement & Department of Justice agencies, Congress & minimal staffs, the Supreme Court, the DOD & all military personnel uniformed & civilian, infrastructure costs & maintenance & a true national disaster agency (not FEMA). Those who live in flood, fire & extreme storm areas need tax credits to install &/or build safety structures & systems against those disasters. Earthquakes, terrorist acts & other uncontrollable disasters we all take the same risk against loss of property & life; that is what insurance is for or should be. Tax credits for healthcare & education but NO SUBSIDY FUNDING of any kind. The needy to be care for by a private sector allowance & development through a tax credit system or fair tax system (no greater than a 4% tax). The federal correctional system gets funded through work & manufacturing programs which convicted offenders perform & products & services are provided at market level pricing. Convicted offenders also grow a large portion of their own food or starve!! Career criminals & most murders are executed after 2 appeals within a 3 year period, end of story!! China & others holding US federal debt instruments get no interest payments until their pay off their past wartime debts from WWI, WWII & the Korean conflict. There will be no nation building or rebuilding of countries once our military has routed terrorist or any aggressors against weaker countries, NATO allies or UN requests!! Etc. ,etc., etc.!

    1. The new party should be constructed from the Tea Party, The Conservative Party and whoever will join. To hell with the Establishment Republicans and Union controlled Democrats and the Socialists. Start the vetting now we don’t have much time

  9. YOU will be required to disobey any laws or ‘commands’ coming from this president and congress …THEY have ruled themselves traitors to their oath of office and to the trust and well being of ‘we the people’….YOU are the only thing that is standing in their way…and they will trash this country down around your ankles….Voting only enables THEM to continue their treachery and plundering of this country…..It we be a lonely road to travel, but YOU must …In my opinion a vote for the Donald is not wasted and its is not a vote for the GOP and the establishment…any other vote to anyone even Cruz is ..Business as usual……the message from Trump is anti establishment….and I will support that…and soon even that will not help su…A…..YOU and I will have to use our God given rights as will be needed to stop the plundering and abuse….imho….Semper Fi

    1. I agree with you Dan. We need to elect non-politicians for the next 5 -10 cycles to put America (the USA) back on track to the US Constitution. In that same time we need to limit both elected & non-elected positions within the federal & statewide offices. Bureaucrats, who are hired as employees, need to be transferred to other departments with the same security clearances to avoid comfort & power in each department. Their employment should be performance based with ideology put aside & performances constitutionally applied.

  10. Sarah Palin said it appropriately; They play us like battered wife’s, lie to our faces, beat us to a pulp, than on bended knee, cry, bring flowers and promise to never do it again.

    What an brutal awakening this has been. As the governed, I revoke my consent.

    1. @Brian, that seems to me like a great idea Brian to revoke our consent. If we could start a (mind block) one of those things where you post your grievances at the White House, Oh ya a petitioning of the government by the governed. That we the people revoke and remove our consent to be governed by the present unconstitutional traitors. Some how the brains of this out fit if they could submit this idea to other like minded websites, alternative news sites and make it very clear that it is a go/green light. I bet we would get quite a petition going IMHO.But dog gone we our about plum out of time for peaceful resolution.

  11. Do not be deceived, it is the “republican party” in name only and for fund raising purposes ONLY!!! You MUST join the Constitution Party! Get your Constitution Party up and running! It is our ONLY chance, SAVE THE CONSTITUTION!!! GET INTO THE STREETS!

  12. If the “gop” follows through with this “brokered convention” crap you can rest assured that I for one will write-in my candidates name and to H___L with the Republican Party “leadership”. It continues to be proven daily, 99.9% of the time, when you attach the word “politician” to anyone all common sense and intelligence evaporates like spit on red hot stove. Another revolution by “We the people” is LONG overdue!

  13. Nice article David. I read every article that you and all of the other contributors write for this web site. I also read all of the comments and responses by our members. The information and knowledge of those responding in many cases is noteworthy and extremely educational. I do my best to keep up with today’s political and social debacle, however, it is changing so rapidly that it has become an hour to hour crisis watch. It is obvious that the two major party’s have just about become one and regardless of what political or social issue comes up, the one common denominator that links the issue is always the same……Guns and the Second Amendment. It is obvious that the one single issue that keeps this “big domino” standing is the Second Amendment and the fact that so many Americans are well armed and will be willing to utilize them to defend our Sovereign Constitutional Republic from ANY adversary. Unless I am miles off base, I can see no way that this can be avoided. I was just reading this morning a report about the UN program “Trident Juncture 2015” and feel reasonably sure that it is directly associated with Jade Helm 15 concerning Logistics, Recon and equipment / supplies location. They already have UN boots on the ground in 6 cities across the country working with local police departments under the name of the SCN (Strong Cities Network One World Police Force), one of which is in Ft. Worth, Texas, not far from where I reside. The Attorney General has installed a Domestic Terrorist Czar and recruited the SPLC to work with them to identify the threats to National Security which are…veterans, patriots, individualists, Constitution supporters, Bill of Rights supporters, anti Obama / anti Government supporters and Christians. There is already a “100 mile Constitution Free Zone” in effect around the entire United States which gives them unbelievable power to accomplish their goals which is surely firearm confiscation by using UN personnel / Obama loyal recruited troops. By just reading and observing everything that is going on daily, adding the racial nightmare, immigration nightmare and the Syrian Refugee debacle, you can actually “feel” the circle tightening and I think that the chance is rapidly approaching that Obama will impose Martial Law so he can bring his Globalist Elite agenda full circle. All of the high level politicians that have already caved in to his agenda will occupy high level positions in the UN New World Order Social Dictatorship…..if I’m confused or off base with these observations, please enlighten this old American veteran that still loves this Sovereign, Constitutional Republic and still lives by the Oath.
    Merry Christmas to all of my veteran and Oath Keeper brothers and sisters. Stay in touch and stay “connected”…….God Bless America !

  14. Maybe it’s time us American, law abiding gun owners actually USE the second amendment (instead of just TALKING about it) and DO something to change all of this. Calling senators and representatives doesn’t work, the courts are for the most part AGAINST us, TALKING is pretty much over! Let’s do something!

  15. The next time I see a dead animal on your email to me, I will exit with you and your emails. Especially with hanging animals!!! Walt.

  16. The Dems advance tyranny and the Rinos consolidate it. That way, tyranny can be introduced slowly and eventually accepted by the ignorant masses. Some embrace servitude, others accept or ignore it as long as there are diversions, and still others though disturbed by tyranny give in to it through the process of learned helplessness.
    More people are waking up as the tyranny hardens. The noose around the first and second amendments are tightening. We no longer have a real voice at the Federal level, nor in most states.
    When should we take our stand? Are we better off acting sooner or later? What kind of civil disobedience is likely to achieve results? Should we create and actively promote our own regional enclaves?

  17. ALL TALK & NO ACTION IS WHY WE ARE WHERE WE ARE ((((( JUST WATCH TV TILL THEY COME FOR YOU )))))) YOUR CHILDREN WILL SPIT ON YOUR GRAVES FOR GIVING AWAY THERE FREEDOM.

  18. I ask all Americans, do we hold the “moral and ethical high ground”? We once did. We were a special people even as Israel was at one time. We were the “Light shining on a hill” for all of the world to see. We lifted the torch of truth. We were the example to the world of freedom, strong ethical and moral behavior. We strove to lead the world in education, science, industry and feeding the poor worldwide. We were the model of the “Judeo Christian ethic” for the Western world. We are now in the throes of abject moral, ethical, and financial deterioration and led down that road by our elected leaders who would rather line their pockets with as much gain as they can hold rather than promote and sustain the principles of our founding fathers who so nobly fought, sacrificed and created our great governmental system that has given us so much freedom while the rest of the world digressed into wars, poverty, hopelessness and Socialist anarchy. We rescued them time and again from dictatorial despots who would enslave them. We now are on the verge of joining them if we allow our government to continue to destroy the economy and moral fabric of our nation by allowing them to continue to pass laws that conflict with the intents of the founding fathers. The result will be the total destruction of our Constitution and our American way of life. Our “light” has become faint and is almost extinguished. We are losing HOPE. We Americans were given the privilege of sharing with the world the Gospel of Christ as custodians of the Judeo Christian Ethic(the laws of God). We have forfeited that responsibility and honor by the laws we pass and the horrors we allow. We destroy our unborn children to the gods of convenience even as the Canaanites did. Shall we not be judged as failures in the custodianship of the message we were given even as Israel was judged? The Lord have mercy on us and help us before we continue down this road of destruction and reek the havoc of His righteous indignation. 70 years ago America would not have stood by and allowed these atrocities that this article portrays to continue without a National response of outrage and manifested in the form of military action. I urge all Americans to abandon the relativistic philosophies of our times and stand against the corrupt and morally reprehensible political machines that govern us and choose a true leader during this election cycle that will lead us back to the time of our nations greatness when we were respected for our national integrity, a time when we gave the world “HOPE”.

  19. I can’t help but laugh. For 4 years we have watched as corrupt dems and rinos work to satisfy their own personal agendas and make their wallets fatter. I knew what they were going to do and I knew what their excuse would be, they did not surprise me. Until America comes out of denial this will continue on, the gop and dem parties are one party people. The only way to correct the course we are currently on is to oust every rino from office, to stop voting rinos in believing somehow that it is better to have a rino then a lib. The labels are camouflage designed to get you to vote for rinos, let’s shake the delusion from our minds, get clear on this, a vote for a rino is a vote for a lib. I won’t vote for a rino again, I am clear on their strategy , many still have to come to terms with this reality.

    1. Doc1776…..at this juncture, I simply can not see how Jefferson’s quote can be avoided. Every single indicator points in that direction. Hopefully I’m wrong, but if not, we must apply the old Boy Scout Motto…”Be Prepared”……God Bless America.

    2. Maybe not due but coming dangerously close. I say we should have a Doomsday clock for Oathkeepers with midnight being FBR (Full Blown Revolution).

      Maybe each writer could have his own FBR clock also.

      My midnight rider clock says we’re about 1 minute or less close to midnight.

  20. Reply to Reckless Boomers ; He’s is correct when he talks about Senator Ted Crus wife and her ties to Goldman Sachs’ , where she was one of the Vice-Chairman’s there and he’s correct that she’s Jewish and I remember Ted Crus dancing around , when The President of Israel was speaking too Congress , clapping his hands and being very joyful . I’m worried about that night time in the bed pillow – talk ! Who wears the pants ? And concerning Donald Trump he’s correct about that to ;The gambling casinos in the real estate ventures in Atlantic City , is where you have too go along to get along , with the Jewish elite . And Donald Trump has been involved doing Presidential T.V. campaign ads for Israel’s president in Israel ; Recently ! Question ? Donald Trump had four bankruptcies ; Who financed his fourth bankruptcy to make it possible for him too reboot his financial position in his real estate holdings inside Atlantic City ? Everybody owes somebody one time or another ; Repositioning himself in Alantic City financially ; Is a biggie !!

  21. It’s clear we all believe that our President has committed high acts of treason as well as most all representatives in Washington. We can sit back and wait until the shit hits the fan or we can do something about it. The time for talking is over; it is now time for action. Treason is what these people are guilty of and if you cannot see this you a just a rambling fool. I personally do not feel sitting back and letting this crap continue will resolve anything. We can clearly see we cannot expect anything within the confines of the constitution to come out of Washington. Our so called elected officials do nothing but raise money for their next election. Voting the bums out is not going to work as seen by the votes just passed. We just voted a majority of Republican representatives in to Congress and it’s the same old crap again.
    I propose we contact all constitutional organizations and set a date for a mass march on Washington to remove Obama from office. We are within our legal right to do so under a citizen’s arrest. That’s right we do a mass citizen’s arrest of this traitor for acts of treason and we are within our legal right to do so. Let’s face it; voting is no longer an option that accomplishes anything, clearly sitting back a weighting for them to fire the first shot will only delay the inevitable and strengthen their position.
    It is time to amass the citizens of this country that believe in the Constitution and do what needs to be done within the law. If congress will not act and represent the people of this nation within the confines of the Constitution then it is up to the citizens of this country to do so and is our sworn duty .
    Yes the Oathkeepers have stood toe to toe at the Bundy Ranch and several other unconstitutional land grabs and what has it accomplished; we are listed as a terrorist organization. My God, are we blind! We are upholding our oath and we are listed as a terrorist organization, do we need to be shot down in the streets before we realize we have past the point of no return.
    I am proposing a non violent legal action and no more to bring this to a head. Dr. Martin Luther King brought about change and we can do the same peaceful unarmed march on Washington and make a citizen’s arrest. It is an individual citizen’s right to make a citizen’s arrest and it is our sworn responsibility to do so and we can do it collectively with others at our side. It’s our country, it’s time to put a stop to the corruption and the treasonous acts coming out of Washington.

  22. Why do any of your commentators or even yourselves continue to make statements about billary clinton or anyone else succeeding in taking our guns and destroying the 2nd Amendment? Before that happens, it will prove my point that we millions of gun owners, with our hundred of millions of guns and billions of rounds of ammunition take up our arms in defense of ourselves and our nation. EVERY politician in DC and around the country would be the primary target in such armed conflict, as well as EVERY oath breaker in the country. Why does everyone continually ignore stating the one and only reason our founding fathers put the 2nd Amendment in the Constitution?

  23. Patrick J Buchanan stated that Amerika does not have 2 parties, they are just two wings on the same bird of prey. He also so accurately stated that the US Congress is Israeli occupied territory.

    On elected officials, Will Rogers said that they all go in on promises & they all go out on alibis.
    Special interest money always trumps desires of the voters & the bankers & lobbyists know it.

    “I tell you, don’t worry about what the Americans will do. We control their government & they know it” Ariel Sharon to Ehud Barak, 2004

    It is called “The American Dream” because you have to be asleep to believe it.

  24. “What happened here was the gradual habituation of the people, little by little, to being governed by surprise; to receiving decisions deliberated in secret; to believing that the situation was so complicated that the government had to act on information which the people could not understand, or so dangerous that, even if the people could not understand it, it could not be released because of national security. And their sense of identification with Hitler, their trust in him, made it easier to widen this gap and reassured those who would otherwise have worried about it.”
    Milton Mayer- They Thought They Were Free: The Germans, 1933-45
    (2nd edition ed.). University of Chicago Press. pp. p. 166.

    Just substitute the name of nearly any politician, left or right, for Hitler. We are on the same road.

  25. No man thinks more highly than I do of the patriotism, as well as abilities, of the very worthy gentlemen who have just addressed the House. But different men often see the same subject in different lights; and, therefore, I hope it will not be thought disrespectful to those gentlemen if, entertaining as I do, opinions of a character very opposite to theirs, I shall speak forth my sentiments freely, and without reserve. This is no time for ceremony. The question before the House is one of awful moment to this country. For my own part, I consider it as nothing less than a question of freedom or slavery; and in proportion to the magnitude of the subject ought to be the freedom of the debate. It is only in this way that we can hope to arrive at truth, and fulfil the great responsibility which we hold to God and our country. Should I keep back my opinions at such a time, through fear of giving offence, I should consider myself as guilty of treason towards my country, and of an act of disloyalty toward the majesty of heaven, which I revere above all earthly kings.

    Mr. President, it is natural to man to indulge in the illusions of hope. We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth, and listen to the song of that siren till she transforms us into beasts. Is this the part of wise men, engaged in a great and arduous struggle for liberty? Are we disposed to be of the number of those who, having eyes, see not, and, having ears, hear not, the things which so nearly concern their temporal salvation? For my part, whatever anguish of spirit it may cost, I am willing to know the whole truth; to know the worst, and to provide for it.

    I have but one lamp by which my feet are guided; and that is the lamp of experience. I know of no way of judging of the future but by the past. And judging by the past, I wish to know what there has been in the conduct of the British ministry for the last ten years, to justify those hopes with which gentlemen have been pleased to solace themselves, and the House? Is it that insidious smile with which our petition has been lately received? Trust it not, sir; it will prove a snare to your feet. Suffer not yourselves to be betrayed with a kiss. Ask yourselves how this gracious reception of our petition comports with these war-like preparations which cover our waters and darken our land. Are fleets and armies necessary to a work of love and reconciliation? Have we shown ourselves so unwilling to be reconciled, that force must be called in to win back our love?

    Let us not deceive ourselves, sir. These are the implements of war and subjugation; the last arguments to which kings resort. I ask, gentlemen, sir, what means this martial array, if its purpose be not to force us to submission? Can gentlemen assign any other possible motive for it? Has Great Britain any enemy, in this quarter of the world, to call for all this accumulation of navies and armies? No, sir, she has none. They are meant for us; they can be meant for no other. They are sent over to bind and rivet upon us those chains which the British ministry have been so long forging. And what have we to oppose to them? Shall we try argument? Sir, we have been trying that for the last ten years. Have we anything new to offer upon the subject? Nothing. We have held the subject up in every light of which it is capable; but it has been all in vain.

    Shall we resort to entreaty and humble supplication? What terms shall we find which have not been already exhausted? Let us not, I beseech you, sir, deceive ourselves. Sir, we have done everything that could be done, to avert the storm which is now coming on. We have petitioned; we have remonstrated; we have supplicated; we have prostrated ourselves before the throne, and have implored its interposition to arrest the tyrannical hands of the ministry and Parliament. Our petitions have been slighted; our remonstrances have produced additional violence and insult; our supplications have been disregarded; and we have been spurned, with contempt, from the foot of the throne. In vain, after these things, may we indulge the fond hope of peace and reconciliation. There is no longer any room for hope. If we wish to be free² if we mean to preserve inviolate those inestimable privileges for which we have been so long contending²if we mean not basely to abandon the noble struggle in which we have been so long engaged, and which we have pledged ourselves never to abandon until the glorious object of our contest shall be obtained, we must fight! I repeat it, sir, we must fight! An appeal to arms and to the God of Hosts is all that is left us!

    They tell us, sir, that we are weak; unable to cope with so formidable an adversary. But when shall we be stronger? Will it be the next week, or the next year? Will it be when we are totally disarmed, and when a British guard shall be stationed in every house? Shall we gather strength by irresolution and inaction? Shall we acquire the means of effectual resistance, by lying supinely on our backs, and hugging the delusive phantom of hope, until our enemies shall have bound us hand and foot? Sir, we are not weak if we make a proper use of those means which the God of nature hath placed in our power.

    Three millions of people, armed in the holy cause of liberty, and in such a country as that which we possess, are invincible by any force which our enemy can send against us. Besides, sir, we shall not fight our battles alone. There is a just God who presides over the destinies of nations; and who will raise up friends to fight our battles for us. The battle, sir, is not to the strong alone; it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave. Besides, sir, we have no election. If we were base enough to desire it, it is now too late to retire from the contest. There is no retreat but in submission and slavery! Our chains are forged! Their clanking may be heard on the plains of Boston! The war is inevitable²and let it come! I repeat it, sir, let it come.

    It is in vain, sir, to extenuate the matter. Gentlemen may cry, Peace, Peace²but there is no peace. The war is actually begun! The next gale that sweeps from the north will bring to our ears the clash of resounding arms! Our brethren are already in the field! Why stand we here idle? What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!

    Patrick Henry

    1. We are a nation built on law, real law, natural law. I feel we should try law first always, use what the US Constitution assigns to “We the people of the United States” to regenerate and renew our constitutional republic. If force is needed to enforce natural law then the Militia that is the ONLY Constitutionally assigned force that has that LAWFUL authority.

      Constitution of the United States of America Second Amendment: “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”

      Version sent from the House of Representatives to the Senate Aug 14, 1888: “A well regulated Militia, being composed of the body of the people being the best security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed;”
      “Free State” in the language of the times referred to a free country; not to any governmental entity, but to the people themselves.

      When we ignore the US Constitution, ignore that we are a nation built on law; when we do not USE our real laws against the color of law, when we do not remove judges for not using “Good behaviour” while in office, when we do not charge and arrest the criminal and traitorous who serve within our governments – using the Militia to do so as the definer of our government and supreme LAW of this nation requires – we play into then destruction nof our nation by our own hands.

      It is in writing that the US Cosntitution and all that is in Pursuance thereof is the supreme law of this land. It is in writing what those that serve within our governments may do, and are forbidden from doing. If we who keep our Oaths and “stand” for the US Constitution do not do as it tells us to do, are we not only admitting that it is nothing, and that our forefathers put everything on the line for a useless cause because the people themselves cannot rule themselves even with a “handbook” of repair instructions?

      The Grand Jury Investigations are ours. The Grand Jury is ours also. The Militia and the US Constitution, each state Constitution are also ours to use. Our framers and foregathers wrote much to see that we understood what they felt, were fighting against and for. They paid a high price for our nation, for our freedom. They expected us to do the same IF ever needed because of our own neglect.

      They expected the people to rule themselves and those that serve within the governments were just one more tool to of the people to do so. That is why the duties goes with the branch and the named positions within a branch, so that no person would ever gain the authority themselves, but lose it when leaving office, nor is it handed down to those that serves posterity.

      Abraham Lincoln: “We, the people, are the rightful masters of both congress and the courts – not to overthrow the constitution, but to overthrow men who pervert the Constitution”

      Benjamin Franklin: “In free governments the rulers are the servants, and the people their superiors and sovereigns. For the former, therefore, to return among the latter was not to degrade but to promote them.”

      Thomas Jefferson: “The most effectual means of preventing [the perversion of power into tyranny are] to illuminate, as far as practicable, the minds of the people at large, and more especially to give them knowledge of those facts which history exhibits, that possessed thereby of the experience of other ages and countries, they may be enabled to know ambition under all its shapes, and prompt to exert their natural powers to defeat its purposes.”

      Thomas Jefferson:“I know no safe depository of the ultimate powers of the society but the people themselves, And if we think them not enlightened enough to exercise their control with a wholesome discretion, the remedy is not to take it from them, but to inform their discretion by education. This is the true corrective of abuses of constitutional power.”

      George Washington: “The preservation of the sacred fire of liberty, and the destiny of the Republican model of government, are justly considered as deeply, perhaps as finally staked, on the experiment entrusted to the hands of the American people.”

      James Madison, Federalist 46: “… the ultimate authority … resides in the people alone”

      Thomas Jefferson: “The issue today is the same as it has been throughout all history, whether man shall be allowed to govern himself or be ruled by a small elite.”

      Thomas Jefferson: “We established however some, although not all its important principles. The constitutions of most of our States assert, that all power is inherent in the people; that they may exercise it by themselves, in all cases to which they think themselves competent, (as in electing their functionaries executive and legislative, and deciding by a jury of themselves, in all judiciary cases in which any fact is involved,) or they may act by representatives, freely and equally chosen; that it is their right and duty to be at all times armed; that they are entitled to freedom of person, freedom of religion, freedom of property, and freedom of the press.”

      The military and LEA’s may believe that they are those that serve within the governments weapons; but for them to act so would make them Traitors to the American people, the US Constitution, and the USA. So in reality, they are the PEOPLES weapons. Because if it is Treason for them to act against the American people then they must be an agent of the American people. And it matters not who was delegated to give them orders – hired, elected, contracted, etc. They were given a blueprint (US Constitution, and state Constitutions) and required to take and keep an Oath that summarizes exactly what LAWFUL authority they are allowed to use, and quite often, when they may use it, and when they are FORBIDDEN from acting.

      St John Tucker: “The congress of the United States possesses no power to regulate, or interfere with the domestic concerns, or police of any state: it belongs not to them to establish any rules respecting the rights of property; nor will the constitution permit any prohibition of arms to the people;…”

      The founders knew that we would have betrayal of those that serve within our governments and put into the Declaration of Independence, the US Constitution and within the Preambles within it, each state Constitution, what we are to do. The decision to use the tools and the “handbook” of what to do is always up to us.

      Richard Henry Lee, Member of Continental Congress, Signer of the Declaration of Independence, U.S. Senator said this: “To say that a bad government must be established for fear of anarchy is really saying that we should kill ourselves for fear of dying.”

      I am modifying it a bit here. “To say that a bad government must be tolerated for fear of anarchy is really saying that we should kill ourselves for fear of dying.”

      God Bless! Stay Safe All!

      Molon Labe!

      Cal
      Chief Tecumseh: “When it comes your time to die, be not like those whose hearts are filled with the fear of death, so that when their time comes they weep and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way. Sing your death song and die like a hero going home.”

      If there were never intended to be action to defend the Constitution from those who are domestically attempting to destroy its power and authority, why would each Oath require it of those who take the Oaths?

  26. The following is directly from the John Birch Society. Not only am I a member of Oathkeepers, but also a member of the JBS. Both organizations go hand in hand with each other. I suggest that all members of Oathkeepers check them out and consider joining, there is strength in numbers.

    “The Republican globalists in the House managed to give their globalist Democratic brethren everything they asked for in the Omnibus spending bill which sailed through Speaker Ryan’s House and McConnell’s Senate.

    The New American reports that funding for the Green Climate Fund to fight global climate change is intact. Funding for sanctuary cities continues unabated, as does funding for Planned Parenthood. Work visas for foreign workers are to be increased and refugee resettlement’s are not blocked. The only bright spot seems to be a lifted ban on the sale of domestic oil. Yet, as The New American points out, were lawmakers’ phone lines lit up because of this topic? No, most communications were on the unfunding of Planned Parenthood and blocking of Syrian refugees.

    To begin to understand why Republican leadership continues to sell-out American conservatives, it’s important to understand that in the arena of politics, the battle between Republicans and Democrats is merely one of perception. The battle to actually focus on is one that pits liberty against tyranny. Every time Congress empowers or emboldens the federal government outside of its constitutional limitations, Congress implicitly furthers tyranny.

    Are all Republicans who voted for this complicit in the scheme to further tyranny? No, many may have followed along party lines for voting guidance. However, this does not lessen their responsibility to honor their oath of office and obey the Constitution. Constituents must hold their elected officials accountable.

    If you’re not familiar with the parameters of this liberty vs. tyranny battle and are not sure of the divisions of conservatism in the Republican party, then please view the DVD “NeoConservatives: Changing American Politics.”

    Once understanding where the real battle lies, then you know better how to attack the actual problem with a true and effective solution.

    Get started today by joining The John Birch Society. Help us fulfill less government, more responsibility, and — with God’s help — a better world.”
