GOP Should Extract Major Concessions From Dems Before Raising Debt Ceiling

The U.S. Government will hit its Debt Ceiling of $14.3 trillion around March or April of this year. Given the Democrats’ reckless spending spree of $5 trillion over the past two years under the leadership of Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid, it is clear that the Dems will want to raise the ceiling in the hopes of continuing their wasteful programs and passing the bill along to our grandchildren.

First, it is nonsense to think that one should pay off a credit card by using another credit card with a higher interest rate. Second, the “full faith and credit” of the United states government is in greater danger from ballooning deficits and higher national debts than it will ever be from a capped Debt Ceiling.

Thus, I have a proposal. The GOP should extract two concessions from the Dems before agreeing to raising the Ceiling.

1. Any legislation that raises the Debt Ceiling must include a Balanced Budget Amendment.

2. Any legislation that raises the Debt Ceiling must repeal and permanently defund Obamacare.

If the GOP was really listening last November, they will demand these consessions and not back down from them.

Jim Webb’s Unbelievable Hypocrisy

Exactly how stupid does Jim Webb think we Virginians are? Does he actually believe that we have not followed his voting record and the fact that he has been nothing but a lap dog of the Obama Democrats? Check out the chutzpuh he sent with his latest re-election email. It is an exceept from the RealClearPolitics website on Monday, November 8, 2010:

Jim Webb went to the White House last September. The Virginia senator was meeting with the president to discuss Guantanamo detainees. The conversation soon shifted to healthcare. “I told him this was going to be a disaster,” Webb recalls. “The president believed it was all going to work out.”

And Jim Webb must have believed it too, otherwise he would not have cast a “Yea” vote for cloiture and for passage of the bill. And now, Webb is saying it was a bad thing? Six months too late, Jimmy boy!

And check this out:

“I’ve been warning them,” Webb says, sighing, resting his chin on his hand. “I’ve been having discussions with our leadership ever since I’ve been up here. I decided to run as a Democrat because I happen to strongly believe in Jacksonian democracy. There needs to be one party that very clearly represents the interests of working people … I’m very concerned about the transactional nature of the Democratic Party. Its evolved too strongly into interest groups rather than representing working people, including small business people.”

Uh-huh. This is why Jimmy voted for the bailouts and the failed stimulus package that served to do nothing except reward unions and government workers who voted Democrats into office.

Webb’s comments and his emails are nothing less than insulting. I know what he has been doing over the past four years and it does not at all reflect his comments of late.

I’ll say it point blank: Jim Webb is a liar. He is lying about his record because he knews that in two years, the Commonwealth of Virginia is going to work very hard to toss him back out and put in a new Senator who will actually respresent Virginia rather than be a rubber stamp for a political party. He was very happy to vote the way the Democrats told him to vote (even when it went against the wishes of Vorginia) and now he sees how wrong he was to do so. But instead of admitting his own culpability, he is making an early effort to distance himself from it by telling outright lies to people.

Supporters of Webb and his staff are especially welcome to respond to this post. I’ll be very happy to compare the liar Webb’s current statements with his voting record. He can lie all he wants, but his record will always tell the truth about what he really believes.

Crowd Size From ‘One Nation’ Versus Crowd Size From “Restoring Honor’

We all know that the left-leaning media (i.e. ABC, NBC, CBS and CNN as well as the Washington Post and New York Times) do whatever they can to put down Conservatives and then prop-up leftists. Many years ago, people would simply believe it because it was in print or broadcast over a major network and no one had any way of checking the news people’s “facts.” Until now. This is why the Internet is so important to us these days. It helps us expose who is lying and who is telling the truth.

Take for example two different rallies. On August 28th was the “Restoring Honor” and October 2nd the “One Nation” rally. The news media tried to downplay the size of the August rally and tried to make the October rally sound larger than it was.

But the real proof is below. This is a shot of the crowd from the “Restoring Honor” rally:

And this is a shot of the “One Nation” rally:

These two photos speak for themselves and also speak to the dishonest manner in which the above mentioned news outlets distort facts and information.

Democrat Violence Against Private Citizen Caught On Video

The next time a Democrat tries to say that they abhor violence and are the most tolerant and peace-loving group in the nation and that they staunchly support the First Amendment, remember the following video:

Video Of Activist Thugs Attacking A Private Citizen Exercizing His First Amendment Right

Democrats are encouraged to reply and tell us how they feel about the assaults that occured in this video.

I would classify this as a hate crime since the two Democrats in question clearly hated the man they attacked.

Further, I have two questions: 1) Why invite the public to a forum where you will be making comments you do not want recorded? 2) Where is the condemnation of these two thugs by Governor Kitzhaber?

Tea Party Cartoons


Time To Choose: Sacrifice Power For Principles Or Sacrifice Principles For Power?

That is the question after Christine O’Donnell’s huge upset win over GOP establishment candidate Mike Castle in Delaware yesterday. There are many lessons to be drawn from that contest and many new questions as a result.

The first lesson is that the Tea Party is not just a movement, it is a revolution. Remember what Tommy Lee Jones said in the movie Under Siege?

“Hence the name: movement. It moves a certain distance, then it stops, you see? A revolution gets its name by always coming back around in your face.”

The RNC and RNSC haven’t gotten the message yet. The Tea Party Revolution is upon them and they need to get with the program or commit political suicide.

The question now becomes: “Will the GOP sacrifice power for principles or principles for power?”

Take, for instance, what Karl Rove did on Hannity when he attacked Christine O’Donnell. According to the American Spectator:

Mere minutes after Fox News had reported the victory of conservative activist Christine O’Donnell over Establishment Congressman Mike Castle in the Delaware GOP U.S. Senate primary, former Bush Deputy Chief of Staff and Fox News consultant Karl Rove was in place on Sean Hannity’s TV show to analyze.

Or…well…something.

The normally rational and analytical Mr. Rove had vanished. In his place was someone who looked like Karl Rove, sounded like Karl Rove…but spoke like the last guy out of the hoped-for-victory-party of the landslide losing candidate for Register of Deeds in NoPlaceville, Texas.

What on earth was Rove thinking? He was bitter, angry, cutting, demeaning, mean-spirited…and those were the nice things he had to say about O’Donnell.

Even former Bush White House Press Secretary Dana Perrino stuck to the old GOP establishment talking points by constantly referring to candidates who “could win.”

Rove and Perrino, like most establishment GOPers, were hoping to get that Senate seat in Delaware even if it meant abandoning Conservative principles to get it. In other words, they are more than willing to sacrifice principles for power.

But the Tea Party Revolution is going in the opposite direction. We value principles over power because without strong, consistent principles, power becomes corrupt.

Well, it also turns out that the National Republican Senatorial Committee is also deaf to the call of the Tea Party:

Carl Cameron of Fox News is reporting the National Republican Senatorial Committee will not be helping the official nominee of the Delaware Republican Party for the United States Senate in her Senate campaign.

Apparently, if there is no chance of getting the power, supporting the principles means nothing to the RNSC. This is yet another reason why they don’t get any money from me.

Since the RNC and RNSC have abandoned princples for power, I suggest to everyone who was thinking of donating to either of those organizations to hold on to your money and instead donate it directly to candidates that will hold on to their principles regardless of whether or not such faithfulness will translate into power.

Barack Obama: Thin-Skinned And Easily Hurt

Let’s think back a few short years ago and remember all the nasty, vile things that were said publically about George W. Bush. All of them were infantile insults and many of the people who uttered them are today invited to be guest speakers at colleges, universities and political events around the United States. Even today, Sarah Palin is to target of a great deal of irrational hatred from the peace-loving and tolerant left. (Note the sarcasm of those last five words.)

So, what happens when Barack Obama is on the receiving end of a few criticisms? Well, first he complains that people are talking about him “like a dog.” But then check out what happens if someone writes a private note with an insult or criticism:

Luke Angel, 17, sent an angry email to the White House after watching a documentary about the September 11 attacks while drunk.

The FBI intercepted the email and contacted police in his home town of Silsoe, Bedfordshire.

Mr Angel has now been placed on a list of people banned from entering the US.

Mr Angel told the Bedfordshire On Sunday newspaper that he was unconcerned about the ban.

“I don’t really care. My parents aren’t very happy about it,” the paper quoted Mr Angel as saying.

“The police who came round took my picture and told me I was banned from America forever.”

Mr Angel told the newspaper he had called Mr Obama a “prick”, but he could not remember exactly what he had written because he was “drunk and high”.

A “prick.” During the 2008 election, Democrats were wearing tee-shirts that read: “Sarah Palin is a cunt.” None of them ever had any law-enforcement people come after them.

And neither Sarah Palin nor President Bush ever uttered one single word of complaint about any of it.

But a 17-year-old gets banned from the U.S, for hurting Obama’s feelings?

Barack Obama needs to grow up and put on his big-boy shorts. The Democrats need a consistent set of standards too.
