Beautifully timed. Hat tip!
Medved? RINO Radio
1. The French Republicans will vote for cloture.
2. The French Repiblicans will claim they voted to defund Obamacare.
3. The French Republicans will find a camera and say how they voted with the people.
4. The French Republicans will send out an email claiming they voted to defund Obamacare.
5. The French Republicans will ask for a donation for their faux heroism.
6. The French Republicans will go out for drinks with the elite liberals and mock Ted Cruz and the Tea Party faction.
Anyone who doesn’t believe this. Is a sucker.
I support him and hope he keeps talking 91.17% (640 votes)
He should stop doing it 8.83% (62 votes)
You might try their local offices.”
Did a fax to 20 different numbers of 20 different Senators and my machine keeps dialing all of them in turn - busy signal at all of them. I have never seen such a display of unmitigated arrogance in my entire life.
By then it will be too late. Just like it was too late in Germany after the Enabling Act of 1933. After that point the only resistance available was to break the laws.
As I compose this, I’m watching Ted Cruz as he filibusters to halt the disaster called Obamacare. I hope you will watch it as well.
If he has used it once, he’s used the phrase “...we no longer listen to the people, our constituents...” over a hundred times. And he’s right...they don’t. And the fact is, THEY NO LONGER NEED TO.
I’ve sent my little rant on this topic before but Ted’s honest comment compels me to do so again.
WHY THE POLITICAL RULING CLASS NO LONGER LISTENS TO US!
Among others, Thomas Jefferson warned that the financial disaster we now face would be but one of many problems paper money would visit upon us if we allowed our leaders to remove the backing from the currency, to wit:
When the servants if the people are paid with something other than that which the people themselves have produced (i.e. the real, tangible products of their labors or some fixed and real medium of that exchange), the roles of master and servant will be reversed.
It was believed by Roger Sherman and a majority of those at the Constitutional Convention that un-backed currency would so damage the fabric of the nation that they ATTEMPTED to prohibit it with these few words at Article 1, Section 10, requiring the states to enforce the prohibition: No State shall make any Thing but gold and silver Coin a Tender in Payment of Debts;
If the people and their states grew inattentive to this matter (and they have!), Jefferson also saw this problem ahead:
In a letter to John Taylor in 1816, he wrote, “And I sincerely believe, with you, that banking establishments are more dangerous than standing armies; and that the principle of spending money to be paid by posterity, under the name of funding, is but swindling futurity on a large scale.”
We have been swindling futurity for a long time and this is now where we find ourselves. If the government, through its banker masters at the Federal Reserve, can create money from thin air, they certainly dont need ours every April 15th. That annual sheep shearing is simply an attempt to vacuum enough of the excess paper from the system to keep the rest of us from catching on to the biggest theft ring in the history of man. They have now created so much that their attempt is failing and failing badly to a point where all but the dullest among us (Obama voters and his growing cadres of personal and corporate welfare beneficiaries) are starting to get it.
If you understood that last paragraph, you can now make the small leap to an understanding as to why the progressive utopian welfare state hacks in Washington dont give a damn WHAT you think. Their power to create all the money they need to fuel their infernal machine and fill the gaping maws of enough of those hoards of welfare constituents to assure their perpetual re-election means that — ready — THEY NO LONGER NEED YOU! They have become, as Mr. Jefferson predicted, our MASTERS.
That they are taking down a nation and a system that has provided more wealth, safety and abundance to more people than any other in history matters not to them. Failing to grasp the lesson of the French Revolution, they believe themselves to be above the impending disaster.
Were running out of time to get this increasingly rapacious beast back into the cage from which we have carelessly allowed it to escape.
We were gonna switch to Direct TV but then CBS came back so my Mom was satisfied..she needs her Entertainment Tonight and The Doctors fix(Yeah I know, I dont get it either LOL) its the high speed internet that sucks you in..with TWC its 30 bucks a month, otherwise it would be around 50 so they are smart, once you get hooked to high speed internet they know they have you
Linko, por favor.
I had to check his/her born on date cause what was written sounded like it came from a DU troll.
I tweeted some of them to #AnswerYourPhones paid for by #WeThePeople.
Um, no one but God knows how this will actually turn out. But hey, if you’re that deeply committed to your belief that Ted is a fraud (that is what you are saying), it would be helpful if you would provide evidence from his past behavior that he is being false with us. To the extent I know anything about him, he seems like a good man who means what he says. If you have inside knowledge to the contrary, you should share it with the rest of us. Don’t you think that would be the honorable thing to do, since you are so deeply committed to exposing the dishonor of others? Hmmm?
Au contraire. We now know that there is Cruz and Lee... and that's it.
Then the house should reject what the senate sends back to them and instead begin sending clean bills to fund each essential department one at a time, with none of them having funds for obamacare, and those departments charged with implementing obamacare funded last, ie, HHS, IRS, etc., and cut those by a sufficient amount that they cannot possibly implement it. If the House does not fund it, it cannot be funded and the senate can pound sand. If it takes all year, that’s fine. The people will elect a new Republican controlled senate in Nov 2014.
I just called Louie Gohmert’s office in D.C. Got right in, his people know where he stands. I encouraged his office to tell him to primary Cornyn. 202-225-3035 - I encourage everybody here to encourage him as well.
Gohmert’s staff said he’s flying into D.C. right now to go to the Senate well to provide moral support.
Medved never misses a chance to give props to Obama.
He used to be half-decent, but I don’t know what happened to him.
