Conservative lobbyist Grover Norquist blasted back at a Republican senator on Friday for backing off his promise to oppose tax increases.

Georgia Sen. Saxby Chambliss said he has dumped his pledge to Norquist about the tax increases, telling a Macon television station he “more about my country than I do about a 20-year-old pledge,” referring to the Taxpayer Protection Pledge he signed when he first ran for the Senate.

Norquist, who heads the conservative group Americans for Tax Reform, created the pledge, which nearly every Republican member of congress has signed. …

Norquist responded, saying, “I miss his point in trying to attack me. Raising taxes on the people of Georgia to pay for Obama’s reckless spending is not the right thing to do for America or Georgia. We have a problem because Washington spends too much, not because Sen. Chambliss has failed so far to raise taxes on the hard-working men and women of Georgia.” …

It needs to be said yet once again:

Norquist is in bed (literally) with Islam.....

Newsmax is in bed with (or in the pockets of ) Norquist...

Why are either referred to on these pages as authoritative in any way?

There are other sources for “don’t raise our taxes.”

The Muslim Brotherhood in America, 10 part series, exposing Islamist influence in the United States, including persons such as Grover Norquist.


The American West, a group led by Tom Trento, held a seminar on the threat to the United States by Islamists, specifically, the Muslim Brotherhood, with a series of sessions led by Tom Trento and John Guandolo, former Marine and FBI Agent of 12 years.

This is an excellent series. This video is approximately 2 hours long. There are two more videos to follow. COPY this video and distribute it to all your church members, friends and family.

“Norquist supports Islamists and Amnesty”

Does this mean that Republican lawmakers should break their pledge and raise taxes?

Saxby Chambliss, so are you saying you will tax Americans to pay for whatever deficits the Federal Government runs up? As that love of country that you refer to? Really?

Another one bites the dust.
