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.

The GOP Establishment’s Poison Suicide Pill

The GOPe is sending a clear message to Donald J. Trump and his supporters; ‘Get Out of Our Party’. Even if you win, we’ll make sure you lose.

It is now abundantly clear that a large portion of the Republican base is no longer welcome in the “Grand Old Party”. The donor class, and their political servants, have been at war with the base for decades, with the animosity becoming especially nasty since the rise of the Tea Party movement. The elitist insiders running the RNC believe they are so much smarter than the average citizen, our votes shouldn’t even count. They will decide who the nominee should be and if we disagree, we’re called knuckle dragging KKK members, fostering the rise of the 2nd coming of Hitler.

We expect this kind of over the top rhetoric from the Democrats, but not from the leadership of our own party. The bottom line is that GOP leadership is owned lock, stock, and barrel by the globalist donor class, and they will never relinquish power to Donald Trump. This is because Trump has promised to end bad trade deals and balance the scales between nationalism, sovereignty and unfettered globalism (massive immigration being a key component).

The GOPe is now attempting to argue that when candidates have roughly the same number of delegates and no one has reached the magic number 1237, it’s perfectly reasonable to have a brokered/contested convention. This is actually true, assuming all things are equal. However, the party apparatchiks have engaged in a coordinated smear campaign with media and pundits in an effort to destroy Donald Trump, the voter’s top choice and party’s front-runner. The smear campaign waged by the GOPe and its paid shills invalidates the legitimacy of a brokered convention.

This “poison pill” is unprecedented and is rightly being seen as the lowest form of dirty politics, even from those who don’t support Trump. At this point, it doesn’t matter what happens going forward. The GOP has committed suicide. After seeing this RNC debacle play out, it’s clear that Republican elites do not stand with the base of its own party, and many of us will never forget how we’re being treated.

As I see it, the GOP has been irrevocably split and the path forward for many of us is with a 3rd party. Only a billionaire like Donald Trump, who has the resources to run a national campaign, can lead a successful 3rd party movement.

While I believe Donald Trump can win a 3rd party bid for president, if it happens to result in a Hillary Clinton presidency, the GOP establishment will be solely to blame for it. They should not have engaged in the vicious smear campaign against Trump and his supporters. They should have stayed on the sidelines and let the voters pick our candidate.

Tim Scott and Trey Gowdy Endorse GOP Establishment Candidate Marco Rubio

Tim Scott and Trey Gowdy have shown their true colors by endorsing Marco Rubio in the GOP primary. It comes as no big surprise to see Trey Gowdy jump on the Rubio bandwagon. Gowdy has been a good little GOPe puppet since he arrived in congress. However, it is more disturbing to see Tim Scott go “full on establishment” with his endorsement of Marco Rubio.

One would expect a Senator, who supposedly rejects open borders and amnesty, to also reject a candidate who champions and advocates those causes. A big red flag was raised when Tim Scott rushed to the side of our race hustling Governor Nikki Haley, in a breakneck effort to remove the battle flag from the civil war soldiers’ memorial. It was a cowardly act of disrespect to the fallen, their families and the citizens of South Carolina.

Combine the flag betrayal with Scott’s endorsement of Rubio and we are now getting a more clear picture of who Tim Scott actually is. Turns out, he’s simply another phony Tea Party poser, a politically correct, amnesty loving, GOP establishment lapdog. He’s just another career politician, who has become a puppet of big money donors and the Chamber of Commerce, just like his cohorts: Trey Gowdy and Nikki Haley.

I’ve officially written off Tim Scott and will be looking for an alternate choice when he’s up for reelection. Many of us who support small, accountable government, also support term limits. It’s now time for voters to tell Tim Scott and Trey Gowdy that their terms are over. We’ve seen quite enough. Wind up puppet Marco Rubio? Really? Thanks, but no thanks.

Neocon Nikki Haley Unveils Another Record Budget: New Gas Tax Swap Scam

Our Phony Tea Party governor, Nikki Haley, shows her true colors once again by burdening South Carolina citizens with a new record budget of $7.5 billion dollars. Included in the budget is a new 10c per gallon state tax on gasoline, swapped with a 2% state income tax decrease. In all those Tea Party rallies I attended, I do seem to remember the chants of “Not Taxed Enough Already“.

Oh, wait! That wasn’t it. It was “Taxed Enough Already“. Now I get it. That was the “TEA” in Tea Party. Evidently, Nikki Haley didn’t get it. She never has and she never will.

Tea Party members simply want to see smaller government, along with lower taxes. The idea that government would increase taxes in one area, in order to give tax breaks in another area, is a zero sum gain. It’s the old tax swap scam, a political game that always leaves the citizens on the short end of the stick. Can you say “sales tax for property tax” swap? That didn’t work out too well for the citizens of South Carolina. Our property taxes are now higher than ever and we are still burdened with the higher sales tax. That is exactly the same thing that will happen with Nikki’s new gas tax swap scam.

Nikki Haley Signs Law Giving Tax Breaks For The Rich on Their 2nd Home
(But Nothing For The Average Citizen’s Primary Residence)

All this comes on the heels her attacks on the popular GOP primary front runner Donald Trump and her implicit support for amnesty for illegal aliens. Also, let us not forget race hustling Nikki Haley’s mad rush to remove the confederate flag from the Civil War soldiers monument at the State House. Haven’t we had enough of phony Tea Party, race hustling, tax and spend politicians like Nikki Haley?

The fact of the matter is, Haley wants even more revenue to feed the wasteful bureaucratic mess that is South Carolina government, including the broken School System’s bloated bureaucracy and the debt riddled Transportation Department. Rather than cutting layers of bureaucrats, administrators and paper shufflers, who do little more than siphon off resources our State Government can’t afford, Haley’s priority is more taxes on S.C. citizens.

Sadly, these days, it seems more often than not, the Statehouse political elite appear to be working against the best interest of the citizens in our great state of South Carolina. Considering Governor Haley’s track record so far, she is looking a lot less like the Tea Party conservative she pretended to be during her campaign, and more like the GOP establishment political hack she actually is.

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 FWD.us 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.

Tea Party To GOP Establishment: Where are the cuts?

The phrase; “We need to work together, in a bi-partisan manner, to get things done” is a nice sounding, focus group tested, little sound bite, which usually draws applause from constituents on all sides of the political spectrum, but what does it really mean? Well, it really means that the political class wants to come together to pass new legislation, the purpose of which is to grow the size and scope of government, institute new taxes and fees, pass new regulations or create another unaccountable bureaucracy, which is what politicians do and what most of the ruling class think their job is. This is not what Tea Party backed representatives were elected to do. As a matter of fact, this is just the opposite of what Tea Party backed representatives were elected to do.

Does John Boehner actually think the Tea Party sent representatives to congress so they could negotiate with Democrats to increase the size and scope of Government and capitulate to Obama’s “Tax and Spend” agenda? The TEA in Tea party literally means “Taxed Enough Already”. Where are the cuts, Congressman Boehner? I’m referring to real cuts, not faux cuts, like smaller increases in growth. An increase is not a cut, no matter how you “slice” it. Where is the effort to decrease the size of scope of government and eliminate our massive debt? When was the last time politicians actually eliminated a government agency or decreased the size and reach of the Federal government? In the past, politicians have cut taxes, but they didn’t cut spending. They just ballooned the debt. These destructive policies must end.

The U.S. debt is now over 17 Trillion dollars. I just used this calculator to determine how much of the debt I owe, which is: $175,811. Please feel free to calculate the amount you owe. The average American citizen is now on the hook for approximately $120,000. This kind of outrageous debt is obviously unsustainable.

We all need to realize that there needs to be measurable decreases in the size of government or the entire system is going to collapse. Kicking the can down the road is not a strategy to solve this crisis. The Tea Party sounded the alarm but were demonized by the left, the right and the media. The demonetization needs to end. Politicians and voters need to face up to the crisis at our door and do something about it now, before it’s too late.

Mark Levin On The Ken Cuccinelli Campaign & The GOP’s Anti-Tea Party Agenda

Mark Levin lays out the case as to why the GOP wants to see Ken Cuccinelli lose. Going forward, the GOP plans to blame the Tea Party and promote establishment picks like Chris Christie.

Boehner’s Rejection Of Tea Party Hastens GOP’s Demise

In a misguided lurch to the left, leader of the HOR and GOP establishment puppet, John “Cry Baby” Boehner, has removed several Tea Party members from key committee assignments.

Boehner’s steering committee stripped four rank-and-file members of coveted committee assignments, including conservatives David Schweikert of Arizona, Justin Amash of Michigan, and Tim Huelskamp of Kansas. Various reasons were given, including their records of voting against their leaders’ wishes.

Boehner understands that real Tea Party members aren’t willing to put politics above their principles and simply tow the party line. Albert Einstein articulates my sentiments in the following quote, which seems very apropos.

“He who joyfully marches in rank and file has already earned my contempt. He has been given a large brain by mistake, since for him the spinal cord would fully suffice.”

Does John Boehner actually think that we sent our representatives to congress so they could capitulate to Obama’s “Tax and Spend” agenda? The GOP just gave us a very flawed candidate in Mitt Romney, who had no chance of beating Obama. Now, they expect the base to roll over on taxes. The TEA in Tea party literally means “Taxed Enough Already”. Where are the cuts, Congressman Boehner? I’m referring to real cuts, not faux cuts, such as smaller increases from the baseline. An increase is not a cut, no matter how you slice it.

By rejecting their core principles and their base, the GOP is hastening its own demise. Millions of us stayed home, didn’t vote or voted for someone else in 2012 because we couldn’t bring ourselves to vote for the grandfather of Obamacare. Mitt Romney stated that he believes government has the right to force all free citizens to purchase a service or product. Real conservatives and libertarians do not believe the government has that authority, at the federal or state level.

Now the GOP establishment is signalling they are willing to raise taxes, give amnesty to illegal aliens, and reject the only movement in years that has given them any energy. What’s next on the agenda, cap & trade, new sin taxes, a new stimulus and even more progressive policies?

The GOP is committing political suicide. If they continue to move left and buy into the media narrative of being too extreme, they will lose the house in 2016 and be non-factor for years to come. We will most likely see the rise of a 3rd party to fill the ideological void created by the GOP’s embrace of “progressivism lite”.

Neocon Nikki Haley Endorses Progressive Mitt Romney

Those in the Tea Party movement, who were skeptical of Governor Haley’s anti-establishment message during the campaign, had their suspicions confirmed today, as Necon Nikki rejected Tea Party constitutional conservative Michele Bachmann and instead, endorsed big government progressive Mitt Romney. It certainly makes one wonder what might be next on Haley’s agenda. Perhaps it’s the “sales tax swap” scam that’s already been floated by her administration.

There turned out to be quite a few Tea Party posers in the 2010 campaign, who are now exposing themselves with their endorsements. Governor Haley is clearly the queen of posers in this regard. She passed the largest budget in South Carolina history, gave tax breaks to those who could afford a 2nd home (but not average citizens who really needed the tax break).

So far, Nikki Haley has been a huge disappointment to Tea Party activists in SC, who are still waiting the smaller, more efficient, less intrusive government Haley promised during her campaign.

The fact of the matter is, Haley wants even more revenue to feed the bloated and wasteful bureaucratic mess that is South Carolina government, including the broken School System’s bloated bureaucracy and the debt riddled Transportation Department. Rather than cutting layers of bureaucrats, administrators and paper shufflers, who do little more than siphon off resources our State Government can’t afford, Haley’s priority is to endorse a progressive neocon like Mitt Romney.

Considering Governor Haley’s track record so far, she is looking a lot less like the constitutional conservative she pretended to be during her campaign, and more like an establishment political hack, heading straight for a one term Governorship.

Rick Perry’s Debate Performance Sours Tea Party Members

After another shaky debate performance by Governor Rick Perry in last night’s Google/Fox News debate, Tea Party activists are left disillusioned and wondering if they will end up with a candidate who actually represents their views.

Perry was supposed to be the person who could bring together the various factions in the GOP, but now that conservatives are getting to know the Governor, they aren’t liking what they see. Perry’s liberal position on immigration, in-state tuition for illegal aliens, combined with his support of a state’s right to mandate health insurance purchases (as a condition of being a citizen), could sink his chances. Many Tea Party activists have already abandoned Perry.

With Fox News and the Republican establishment fully behind Mitt Romney, it looks like the GOP might nominate another progressive neocon, ala John McCain. That really didn’t work out to well the last time around and resulted in the election of a radical progressive president, worse than Jimmy Carter.
