Have You Become A Nation Of Cowards, America?

This video is as true today as it was in 2009, perhaps even more so.

It’s time for a 2nd American revolution.

If you fail to take heed, then buy a gun. You’re gonna need it.

Why The GOP Establishment Tried To Destroy The Tea Party

The GOP Establishment Mindset

One would think that true conservative “Republicans” would welcome a grass roots effort to push the party toward a smaller, more accountable government, one that’s based on principles of a Constitutional “Republic”. However, it should be crystal clear, at least to those of us who actually pay attention, the entrenched GOP establishment has no real interest in moving away from progressive policies, printing & borrowing money, crony capitalism or costly and misguided interventionist foreign policies. The GOP, and their big moneyed special interests, understand that the Tea Party movement was, and still is, a real threat to the status quo. They can serve to block the progressive agenda of the financial supporters who keep the establishment in power.

In the mind of the political elite, a perfect example of why the Tea Party must be neutralized is the upcoming illegal alien amnesty debate. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce, who fully supports the amnesty agenda and spends millions lobbying both Democrats and Republicans, trotted out lobbyist Bruce Josten, who, as reported by UPI, recently stated..

One of the most positive things that Congress could get done between now and the end of the year is to get immigration reform up and over the finish line.

Business Lobby -vs- The Tea Party

The Chamber of Commerce is now characterizing the Tea Party as “Anti-Business”, even though that assertion is far from reality. The Tea Party movement supports free markets and free people, not centralized planing and no bid contracts for political supporters. The truth of the matter is that the Chamber is increasingly becoming nothing more than a lobbying firm for big government crony capitalists. The Chamber is spending millions on incumbent RINO “yes men”, in an effort to maintain the corrupt status quo.

The GOP Establishment Will Never Relinquish Power

The progressive neocon wing of the GOP, represented by the likes of Lindsey Graham and John McCain, are happy to go along with the amnesty agenda, mistakenly believing the GOP will be rewarded with Hispanic voters, which is highly unlikely.  Let us not forget the GOP establishment backed Charlie Crist of Florida, who was beaten out by a Tea Party backed Marco Rubio. That race completely debunked the misguided notion that the more conservative candidate can’t win, along with the idea that the GOP needs squishy, middle of the road, candidates in order to appeal to independents. Charlie Crist is now running as a Democrat, proving that he was actually a progressive political hack, all along.

Unfortunately, Marco Rubio quickly betrayed the Tea Party, who helped him get elected to the senate. He immediately joined with the “Gang of 8” and began pushing for illegal alien amnesty. New boss, same as the old boss. This is proof Rubio cannot be trusted to govern as a conservative, if he happens to be elected POTUS. Thankfully, that’s a longshot, at least at this point.

The power elites in the GOP will never accept a majority of candidates who stand on conservative principles, because like Crist, they really aren’t true conservatives. Most of them want to maintain the huge bureaucracy that allows them to maintain power. They have no interest in real spending cuts. The GOP establishment can’t even stomach the small 2% sequester cuts that are now in place. They will be looking to remove those cuts at the first available opportunity. The current GOP plan appears to be an effort to bargain away sequester cuts, for phony promises of future entitlement cuts, which we all know will never happen.

Hate and lies will continue to be directed at the Tea Party, as long as they oppose the central planners who seek to control every aspect of our lives. I believe the establishment would rather see the GOP go down in flames before they would ever capitulate to constitutional principles espoused by the small government wing of their party.

The Unholy Alliance Between The GOP Establishment, The Chamber of Commerce and George Soros

As I’ve already outlined in this article, the Chamber of Commerce is committed to negating the Tea Party movement. Now comes Carl Rove, the poster boy for the GOP establishment, who has created the Conservative Victory Project, an Anti-Tea Party PAC. Mark Levin perfectly articulated the purpose of Rove’s new PAC.

“We’re being stabbed in the back,” Levin declared.

“Here’s a project funded by crony capitalists, funded by corporatists, who are not conservative, funding a group called the Conservative Victory Project,” Levin began. “This is the sort of thing Barack Obama does; this is a thing Marxists do; they give a name to themselves which has nothing to do with what they’re really up to in order to try and control the propaganda.”

“I’m just showing you how diabolical this effort is,” Levin continued.

When it comes to influence from the left-wing Fabian Socialists, it usually gets around to the George Soros connection and this case is no different. Soros is funding the National Immigration Forum, an organization whose purpose is to pressure lawmakers into supporting Amnesty for illegal aliens.

 Breitbart News exposed NIF for being Soros-funded while running a campaign to make it appear as though evangelicals support granting amnesty to illegal immigrants, Noorani admitted his group accepts funding from Soros. Noorani denies that the funding was being used for the Evangelical Immigration Table (EIT), a project that his group runs the operations of, but admits that millions of NIF’s dollars come from Soros and that about 10 percent of its budget this year comes from the leftwing billionaire.

Soros is also intimately connected to Facebook’s Zuckerberg’s push for amnesty. Zuckerberg hired Soros’ former chief financial strategist Stanley Druckenmiller. Druckenmiller served as Soros’ chief strategist for more than a decade.

Mitt Romney’s top 2012 campaign donor, Wall Street hedge fund manager Paul Singer, also funds NIF, as Breitbart News has reported.

What voters need to understand is that the real powers that be, the moneyed  interests who fund campaigns and set the agenda, don’t care whether a Democrat or a Republican is elected. They only care about their own interests and they will do anything to keep small government conservatives and libertarians from gaining a majority in the GOP. They will protect the status quo, even if it means blowing up the system and allowing the left to retain power, in perpetuity.

U.S. Immigration System Isn’t Broken – Laws Are Simply Not Being Enforced

Politicians, along with their media allies, are constantly parroting the lie that our immigration system is broken. Actually, there is very little wrong the immigration system we have in place, except for enforcement of our current immigration laws, and the fact that our borders are not being protected and secured.

When criminal illegal aliens are detained and their crimes are deemed to be “minor” or “non-violent”, they are summarily released back into the population. During a one month period, between February 1st and March 9th of 2013, ICE released 2,228 illegal aliens, with 629 of them having prior criminal records.

In recent testimony before a congressional committee, ICE chief John Morton revealed the following:

Morton said the freed detainees included not only undocumented immigrants with no criminal records, but also people convicted of theft, financial crimes and drunk driving. “In some cases, multiple DUIs,”

If our current laws are not being enforced, why should the American people believe the any new laws will be enforced? As a matter of fact, there are provisions in the New Immigration Bill which allow criminal illegal aliens, with multiple convictions, to qualify for immediate legal status.

In a recent press release, Senator Jeff Sessions pointed out the many problems with the Gaggle of Eight’s Amnesty Bill, including the Obama Administration’s abuse of prosecutorial discretion to prevent the enforcement of federal law.

It will also provide safe harbor to those who have committed a variety of offenses—ranging from identity theft, to multiple immigration violations, and even those with criminal records.

Another misleading statistic, being reported by Amnesty proponents and major media outlets, is that 11 million illegal aliens will be given a path to citizenship (Amnesty). The actual number is closer to 57 million over the next 10 years.

Sen. Jeff Sessions shows that more than 32 million immigrants would receive legal status over the next decade and an additional 25 million would be granted non-immigrant work visas under the Gang of Eight’s immigration bill.

It is clear that any new provisions pertaining to securing the borders, as well as limiting, prosecuting and/or deporting illegal aliens, will not be enforced. Even the GOP front man for Amnesty, Marco Rubio has admitted that “waivers” in the bill give federal officials discretion in applying any new laws.

The time is now, before this flawed, misguided legislation is passed into law, for all concerned citizens to contact their representatives and urge them to oppose the so called “Immigration Reform Bill”, which is effectively, nothing more than Amnesty without real enforcement.

Senate Poised To Pass 1200 page Immigration Amnesty Bill No One Has Read

Upstate Voice has previously exposed some of the lies and loopholes contained within the Illegal Immigrant Amnesty bill. Now, a cadre of the establishment political class in the Senate have just voted for a phony border security amendment, in a transparent effort to give themselves political cover.

As we have previously reported, the new Amnesty bill will give immediate legal status to 11-20 million illegal immigrants, allowing chain immigration for upwards of 40 million more over the next decade. All of this will be done with no real guarantees of border security, only empty promises that can be easily ignored, at the discretion of the same unaccountable bureaucrats who refuse to enforce our current immigration laws.

To add insult to injury, the bill has been larded up with giveaways to Senators and special interests, in an effort to garner their support. The following is a current list of pork barrel spending and outrageous provisions that has recently been uncovered in this 1200 page monstrosity of a bill.

$100 million to promote travel (to Las Vegas)
Cheap Immigrant Labor For Alaska’s Fish Processing Industry.
Grant amnesty to ‘climate change refugees’
20,000 extra visas for meat cutters and trimmers
10,500 E-3 visas to Irish nationals + Family Members
Visas For Foreign Ski/Snowboard Instructors
Three-year, renewable visas For Real Estate Investors > $500,000
New “W” visa for up to 200,000 low skilled immigrants
Canadian Snowbird Association Members Stay in U.S. 8 months per year.
120,000-250,000 so called “merit based” visas annually

There are just a few of the outrageous new provisions discovered so far in the new Amnesty bill. More discoveries are sure to come to light, once we have had a chance to actually review the bill. I suppose our political ruling class will have to pass the bill before we are allowed to find out what is in it.

Let’s see, where have I heard that before?

Considering the Senate fix is already in, it appears our only hope to stop this misguided, open borders, amnesty bill is to contact our representatives in the house and strongly urge them to oppose the legislation. House leader John Boehner needs to take a stand and stop this bill now.

Tea Party Will Support Stimulus For A Border Fence

Obama is asking for $450 billion in new stimulus spending. Why not use a small portion of that stimulus to build a REAL border fence? I’m sure the Tea Party would support this kind of infrastructure spending. To make the left happy, union labor could used for the construction. It would be a win-win for everyone.

Best Border Fence

Best Border Fence


A border fence could create thousands of new jobs, while at the same time, helping to secure the border. Once the border is secure, we can enter into a discussion as to how to handle the 20 million undocumented aliens that are currently in the United States, which would be welcome news for Hispanics who would like to see immigration reform.

The fence must be built to exacting standards. The virtual fence was a 3 billion dollar boondoggle. A less than adequate fence, or a so called virtual fence, would not secure the border. The proof that the current fence is woefully inadequate is demonstrated in the following video.

Tea Party Opposes Rick Perry On Immigration, Gardasil and State Mandates

The bloom is off the rose when it comes to the Tea Party movement’s view of presidential candidate Rick Perry. In a weak showing during CNN’s Tea Party sponsored debate, Governor Perry seemed unprepared for many of the questions posed by members of Tea Party groups from across the nation.

The Texas Governor was deliberate when answering questions in the debate, but he seemed confused and ill prepared at times. When attacked for mandating HPV vaccines for adolescent school children. Perry admitted he should have approached it differently but he wasn’t very forceful in debunking the mandate charge. There was an “opt-out” option so in reality, the Governor wasn’t forcing anyone to do anything. Perry seemed unable or unwilling to drive home that point.

The Appearance of Cronyism
Michele Bachmann noted that Governor Perry’s former chief of staff was the chief lobbyist for Merck, the drug company behind Gardasil, the same company who donated $30,000 dollars to Perry’s campaign. The optics look bad for Perry and he didn’t help matters when he responded by saying the had only taken $5000 from Merck and was offended that anyone would think he could be bought for $5k. Of course, that raises the question; How much could he have been bought for?
