Ted Cruz says this is the last chance to get rid of Obamacare

Published on: July 30, 2013

Republican Sen. Ted Cruz said Tuesday that if Republicans do not seize the opportunity to defund the Affordable Care Act using a continuing resolution, that the health-care law would become a “permanent feature of the American economy.”

Cruz is one of several Senate Republicans who are calling on Republicans to vote no on any continuing resolution unless it defunds the much derided health-care law, along with Sen. Mike Lee of Utah and Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida.

“If there is ever a time to defeat Obamacare, it is now,” Cruz said at a briefing at the Heritage Foundation. “Moreover, we have, I believe, the best opportunity we will have, and possibly the last good opportunity we will have to defund Obamacare with the continuing resolution.”

“If we do not pursue this strategy,” he said later, “we are saying we surrender. Obamacare will be a permanent feature of the American economy.”

Cruz argued that once the law were implemented, people who were receiving subsidies as a result of the law would fight to keep it, noting that historically, no entitlement program in modern times has ever been rolled back after it was implemented.

Vulgar Blimp Chris Christie Finds Liberty a “Dangerous Idea.”

On the eve of a House vote Wednesday on his amendment to curb the National Security Agency’s daily dragnet collection of Americans’ phone records, Rep. Justin Amash (R-Mich.) tweeted, “Washington’s elites fear liberty. They fear you.” On Thursday, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (shown) demonstrated just how eager he is to join the Washington elite.

Speaking at the Republican Governors Conference in Aspen, Colorado, Christie delivered what Aaron Blake at the Washington Post described as a “clear broadside” against Republicans of a libertarian bent, including Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky, expected to be competing with Christie for the GOP presidential nomination in 2016.

“As a former prosecutor who was appointed by President George W. Bush on Sept. 10, 2001, I just want us to be really cautious, because this strain of libertarianism that’s going through both parties right now and making big headlines, I think, is a very dangerous thought,” Christie said.

Asked whether he meant to include Paul in that call for caution, Christie said, “You can name any one of them that’s engaged in this. I want them to come to New Jersey and sit across from the widows and the orphans and have that conversation…. I’m very nervous about the direction this is moving in.”

One of the things making Christie nervous is the battle for privacy rights against what some see as a flagrant overreach by the federal government in the kind of surveillance conducted by the NSA in the name of national security. “I think what we as a country have to decide is: Do we have amnesia? Because I don’t,” Christie said. “And I remember what we felt like on Sept. 12, 2001.”

By citing both September 10 and September 12 of the year 2001, Christie has September 11 surrounded, perhaps with the thought of capturing it as his issue for 2016. By doing so he would be picking up the mantle of fallen presidential hopeful Rudy Giuliani, who campaigned so hard on that tragic event in the 2008 campaign that Joe Biden suggested every sentence from the former New York mayor contained only three things: “a noun, a verb and 9/11.”

Immigration: GOP steps away from any path to citizenship (Can we trust Boehner, Cantor, Ryan?)

House Republicans are meeting Wednesday to hash out their own strategy on immigration, but already one major difference has emerged between them and their Senate counterparts — they are far less enthusiastic about an eventual path to citizenship for illegal immigrants.

Even many of the 32 Senate Republicans who voted against their immigration bill last month said they think a pathway to citizenship for illegal immigrants is necessary, and eventually likely. But in the House, that’s far from a majority stance.

“I believe any talk about a pathway to citizenship will only make the problem worse because our borders are open and you’re encouraging people to come here illegally,” said Rep. Lou Barletta, a Pennsylvania Republican who pioneered immigration crackdowns as a mayor before winning election to Congress.

He said the chief goal for Republicans when they huddle Wednesday afternoon to talk strategy should be to establish that immigration enforcement must come before anything else.

For Democrats, the path to citizenship is non-negotiable as a part of the bill.

“Without a path to citizenship, there is not going to be a bill,” Sen. Charles E. Schumer, New York Democrat, said as he emerged from a meeting with House Democrats.

Time to Throw Out “Second Best” GOP RHINO Senators

Published on: July 10, 2013

Wyoming Senator Mike Enzi is a loyal Republican, a decent guy, and generally a good senator. He also needs to retire from the Senate because he is not good enough, and I don’t care if that makes him sad.

The New York Times probably thought it was helping him recently when it ran how Dick Cheney’s daughter Liz is planning to challenge him in the 2014 Republican primary. The Times hailed him as “a studious, low-key legislator who worked well with Senator Edward M. Kennedy,” and Enzi probably thinks that’s a compliment.

For that reason alone he needs to go.

He needs to go because we can do better. It’s not about Mike Enzi or any other Republican politician. It’s about winning this war against progressivism, and if you aren’t leading the fight then bow out and make room for someone who will.

Liz Cheney will. The seat would hardly be at risk – the Wyoming GOP primary is better known as the Wyoming general election – so we can take the chance to do better. After all, Liz Cheney has something Enzi doesn’t – a taste for political combat.

She wants to win. Not to “compromise,” not to “work together,” not sit around singing “Kumbayah” with the liberals. She wants to win.

Enzi wants to be a sober, serious legislator working with his liberal friends across the aisle to make a better country. Except there are no friends across the aisle, and the liberals do not want to make this a better country. Liberals want to ruthlessly acquire and maintain power and control over every aspect of our lives, and anyone who does not see and understand that and who can’t commit to destroying their hideous plans for our country needs to get out the way for a true conservative warrior.

The Times, perhaps again thinking it was helping, noted that Enzi “avoids political talk shows because, he says, their goal is to get guests to ‘beat up on their colleagues.’”

House Republicans plan to discuss their next steps on the comprehensive Senate immigration bill at a private meeting Wednesday, laying out plans for potential legislation with heavy discussion on border security, according to memos exclusively obtained by Fox News.

The memos, sent to House Republican rank and file members, contain talking points describing various past immigration reform bills and the border security component of the bill passed last month by the Senate on a 68-32 vote.

Palin blasts Rubio as GOP ‘Judas’

Sarah Palin expressed the outrage of many when she let fly with her opinion of the U.S. Senate’s recently passed amnesty bill, aiming her most vitriolic comment at Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla.

Giving voice to the sentiment of many in his conservative base who feel betrayed by his embrace of the highly unpopular legislation, she alluded to the price paid biblical traitor Judas Iscariot in her tweet, “‘Obama Calls Rubio to Congratulate Him on Immigration Reform’ http://shar.es/xLWXm … Hope it was worth 30 pieces of silver.”

After learning that President Obama personally called Rubio to congratulate him, one tweeter chirped: “I think it might finally be sinking in to Rubio that Obama used him like a cheap hooker”

GOP Establishment Authors Its Own Demise

RUSH: John in Westchester, New York. Great to have you on the program, sir, as we head back to the phones. Welcome.CALLER: Hi, Rush. I want to speak to you today about the immigration bill that’s going through the House.

RUSH: Yeah.

CALLER: You’ve had Pelosi, Reid, Schumer, and Obama all telling Republicans that it’s such a bad idea for us not to pass it and that we gotta push this through, otherwise we have no shot of getting the White House in 2016. And if that doesn’t set up a red flag, that these four knuckleheads are telling you that you have to pass this, I don’t know what does. Reid has been sticking stuff in a drawer for the last five years. Why don’t we just take this bill, stick in the drawer, and tell ‘em, “When we have the Senate, we’ll come up with something good”?

RUSH: Well, here’s the thing. By the way, there’s more on this. There are Republican establishment figures who are in the news today. They’re out making personal appearances, and they’re bragging about how Republicans voted on the amnesty bill in the Senate, and they’re bragging about the Gang of Eight Republicans are out there saying, “We love you,” to Hispanic groups, and that this ought to show you that we love you.

The establishment of this party is authoring its demise. You talk about Pelosi and Reid and Schumer and all these other Democrats — Bob Menendez, the Democrat senator from New Jersey — all warning us that if we don’t do this on immigration, we’re never gonna win the White House. As though they are interested in us winning the White House? I mean, the idea that the Democrats are advising us to do things to help us, which means that they would lose? I just don’t buy it. I’m sorry. I don’t think the Democrats ever want us to win the White House ever again.

BREAK TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: Steven in Westchester County, New York. It’s great to have you on the program, sir. Hello.

CALLER: Thanks, Maha Rushie, and bless you for all you do, too.

RUSH: You are welcome, sir. Thank you very much. I appreciate that.

CALLER: I have a question with this whole immigration thing and, to me, these fraudulent numbers that the government’s come out with in regards to legalizing these people and then actually having the government have more money in its coffers. It seems to me that if we have about seven million illegals in this country, let’s say about 25% of them had children, and therefore when they become legalized, they are instantly available to take avail of the federal earned income tax credit. I don’t see how –

RUSH: Which is something that might not impact recently married gay couples, which means that the illegals are gonna have an advantage over the gay couples who ostensibly get married for federal benefits.

CALLER: There you go. There you go, sir.

RUSH: I mean, there’s just no justice.

CALLER: Yes. I know. You’re right. The earned income tax credit to illegals that have children, plus they’re auto citizens –

RUSH: Mmm-hmm.

CALLER: I’d love to know more the details of the financials of this thing ’cause it’s driving me nuts, and… I don’t know. Maybe we’ll get some more of that as time passes, but we’re on a short string here.

RUSH: Well, I gotta tell you something. I’ve been tracking this and following this, and the Republicans are celebrating this vote in the Senate. The Gang of Eight. I don’t meant this to sound threatening or intimidating in any way. I honestly think that the Republican establishment doesn’t know what awaits it regarding this issue. I don’t think… Maybe they do and they just don’t care. That’s just as likely, actually, ’cause they were the same people in 2007 when your phone calls shut this down then.

I think they know, actually.

But let me put it this way. I don’t think… They know that there’s opposition, and they know it’s their base. I don’t believe they realize how deep it goes. I don’t think they have the slightest idea how deep the anger at the current thinking, as expressed by supposedly smart Republican establishment people, exists. The anger. I don’t think they have any idea how deep it is in towns large and small all across this country.

People are livid every time an establishment leader opens his mouth and says, “We gotta do this to make amends with the Hispanic community! We’ve gotta do this so they will love us!” Now, certain members of our establishment, certain establishment members are running around talking about how they are loved now, that the Hispanics get us now. It’s a fantasy like I’ve not seen in a long time, and I just don’t think they know. This issue, even if it were the only thing happening, the anger would be deep and solid.

But in connection with back home, it comes after the wrecking of the US economy, it comes after wrecking the job market, it comes after the exploding debt and interest rates in the student loan program. It comes after all of this other Obama stuff was not stopped or even pushed back against. I think the degree to which people like you are fit to be tied out there over this is something that has escaped them or they’re either aware of it and are ignoring it. But they’re certainly not factoring it, and they’re going to regret that if they continue to push this thing through the House or if they start playing games in a conference committee.

You have people more and more talk about third party now.

If that happens, you can kiss the Republican Party good-bye.

Why the Reagan Democrats Departed teh GOP

On Nov. 3, 1969, Richard Nixon, his presidency about to be broken by massive antiwar demonstrations, called on “the great silent majority” to stand by him for peace with honor in Vietnam.

They did. Within days Nixon’s approval surged to 68 percent. The ferocious Republican partisan of the 1950s had won over millions of Democrats.

Why? Because sons and brothers of those Democrats were doing much of the fighting in Vietnam. If Nixon was standing by them, they would stand by him.

In 1972 Nixon would win 49 states. Ronald Reagan, backed by his “Reagan Democrats,” would win 44- and 49-state landslides.

Yet since Reagan went home, Democrats have won the popular vote in five of six presidential elections. The New Majority is history. The Reagan Democrats have departed. What happened?

Answer: For a generation, when forced to choose between Middle America and corporate America, on NAFTA, most-favored nation for China, and free trade, the GOP establishment opted to go with the Fortune 500. In the GOP the corporate conservative rides up front; the social, cultural and patriotic conservatives in the back of the bus.

Consider who has benefited most from Republican-backed globalization.

Was it not corporate executives and transnational companies liberated from the land of their birth and the call of patriotism?

Under the rules of globalization, U.S. corporations could, without penalty or opprobrium, shut their factories, lay off their U.S. workers, erect new plants in Asia, produce their goods there, and bring them back free of any tariff to sell to consumers and kill the U.S. companies that elected to stay loyal to the U.S.A.

They then used the profits from abandoning America to raise executive salaries to seven and eight figures.

And how did the Reagan Democrats make out?

Real wages of U.S. workers have not risen for 40 years. One in three U.S. manufacturing jobs vanished between 2000 and 2010. The nation that used to produce 96 percent of all it consumed depends now on foreigners for the clothes and shoes we wear, the TV sets we watch, the radios we listen to, the computers we use, the cars we drive.

A nation that used to export twice what it imported has been running huge trade deficits for decades. China now holds $1 trillion in U.S. debt and can buy Smithfield hams out of the petty cash drawer.

With 50,000 U.S. factories closing in this new century, the greatest manufacturing power in history has been hollowed out, as Beijing booms at our expense. Corporate America is building the new China that is pushing Uncle Sam out of the western Pacific.

“Where did the ‘America’ in corporate America go?” asks Robert Patterson in National Review.

In U.K. But Not U.S., Young Voters Turn Against Big Government

A trip to London provides an occasion to compare and contrast British politics and attitudes with those in America.

Both have, in different ways, divided government. The Democratic president has been frustrated by the Republican House of Representatives and is likely but not certain to be until January 2017.

Britain’s ruling coalition has been occasionally strained by disagreements between the dominant Conservatives and the junior Liberal Democrats but seems likely to survive until the general election scheduled for May 2015.

In America the big-spending policies of the Obama administration have been followed by sluggish economic growth, persistently high unemployment and low workforce participation.

The British coalition’s cuts in what Americans call discretionary spending have been followed by roughly zero economic growth but relatively low unemployment and relatively high workforce participation.

In neither country is any party confident of winning the next presidential or general election. In both countries, young voters may be critical in determining who wins.

Young voters in both countries hold libertarian views on cultural issues. They tend to favor same-sex marriage and legalized marijuana, while the elderly tend to be strongly opposed. But there is an apparent difference on economic issues.

Americans under 30 tend to support big government policies more than their elders. They’re likely to tell pollsters that government should do more to solve problems — a position rejected by most American voters over the last 30 years.

After Amnesty: Rubio Would Lose Latino Vote to Biden 60 to 28!

We have to pass amnesty right now to fill the country with unskilled poor Mexicans who are the Latino demographic least likely under any conceivable set of circumstances to vote Republican.

And even after becoming the champion of amnesty, Marco Rubio would still decisively lose the Latino vote to Joe Biden. What do you call that? De Facto Destructiveness?

In a potential 2016 presidential election matchup, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton would beat Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) among Latinos, a poll out Monday shows.

Clinton is the favorite to Rubio 66 percent to 28 percent, the survey from Latino Decisions reports. Rubio also loses in a potential matchup against Vice President Joe Biden 60 percent to 28 percent.

In all the potential 2016 matchups featured in the poll, Clinton and Biden beat former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and Rubio handily.

Why is Rubio losing the Latino vote to Biden of all people? He’s not. Democrats are just winning the Latino vote, which they tend to do. Especially the newly organized low income Latino vote.

thumbVideo: A-Hole Rubio Blubbers About How His Amnesty Bill Is Conservative (Laugh Riot)

Republicans are worried about a wave of town hall protests that could derail momentum for Amnesty

Advocates of immigration reform, who once hoped to have a bill on President Obama’s desk before Congress leaves for their annual August recess, should be nervously checking the calendar. If the House and Senate adjourn before a bill is finished, members will begin feeling pressure, especially from conservative critics who think the bill amounts to little more than amnesty.

Immigration reform backers need only recall four years ago, when the August recess gave rise to scenes of angry protests at town hall meetings across the country, protests that effectively ended any hope Democrats had of winning Republican support for comprehensive health care reform.

Six months into Obama’s first term in office, Democrats held out hope that they could fashion a bipartisan agreement on health care reform. Sen. Max Baucus, the chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, was working closely with Sen. Chuck Grassley, the committee’s ranking member. Obama himself was assiduously wooing Sen. Olympia Snowe, who seemed open to reform. And White House officials believed they could find areas of common ground with dozens of Republicans in the House to form a truly bipartisan set of reforms.

Then came August, when conservative protesters who affiliated themselves with the nascent Tea Party movement descended upon town hall meetings held by members of Congress from both sides of the aisle. Democrats were on the defensive while Republicans, who might have once considered supporting a compromise, realized the level of anger their base felt over the bill.

As August recess began, Jim Manley, then a top advisor to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, had snuck away from the office to get in a quick vacation in his native Minneapolis. He was on the golf course when he received phone calls from two reporters, asking him to respond to comments Grassley had made at a town hall meeting in Panora, Iowa.

Kingston on Immigration: House Unlikely to consider Senate Bill

Congressman Jack Kingston says he still believes immigration reform is important but doubts that House republicans will ever consider a bill from the Senate. “The Senate bill does not have enough border security measures,” says Kingston. “Right now border security is a joke.”

Kingston says he would vote for border security, an electronic verification system that would help keep track of the status of current immigrants and for some measure that would be a “pathway to legalization.” Kingston says that is legalization, not automatically a pathway citizenship.

A new website is asking Arizona residents for their signatures to recall Senators Jeff Flake and John McCain for supporting the immigration-amnesty bill.

The website even has an easy name to remember – SenatorJeffFlake.com

Senator Flake is Failing Arizona!
** Senator Jeff Flake is not representing Arizona voters, conservatives, or American citizens, even though he is our employee and ran under the Republican ticket.
** Jeff Flake is voting as if he were employed by foreign nationals who have invaded the USA, aka illegal aliens, rather than his Arizona constituents.
** Jeff is showing us his true colors- he is as blue as they come, a Rhino, a Liberal Democrat in everything but official party designation.

His recall begins now.

Obama thwarted: ‘No indication’ he will win back House in 2014

President Obama's non-stop fundraising for congressional Democrats is building a huge campaign war chest for next fall, but there is little hope that his party will win back control of the House and make Rep. Nancy Pelosi speaker again, according to an exhaustive new analysis.

President Obama’s nonstop fundraising for congressional Democrats is building a huge campaign war chest for next fall, but there is little hope that his party will win back control of the House and make Rep. Nancy Pelosi speaker again, according to an exhaustive new analysis.

But the report from the University of Virginia’s Center for Politics also shows that Obama may suffer the fewest losses of House seats for a second-term president since Ronald Reagan in 1986, itself a big victory.

“While it would be foolish to rule out any outcome, there is no indication at this point that the Republican House majority is in jeopardy,” said Kyle Kondik, the House analyst on Larry Sabato’s Crystal Ball team.

His report suggest that the Republicans will boost their numbers by five seats in 2014. The average loss by the president’s party in the sixth year of an administration since 1946 is 21 seats. Dwight D. Eisenhower lost a high of 48 in 1958, Reagan lost five in 1986, and Bill Clinton picked up 5 in 1998.
