Lanza NancyBRIDGEPORT — The families of nine people killed in the Newtown elementary school shooting have filed lawsuits against the estate of the gunman’s mother.

The Connecticut Post reports lawsuits contend Nancy Lanza failed to properly secure the rifle her troubled adult son, Adam Lanza, used to kill 20 children and six educators at Sandy Hook Elementary School in December 2012.

The lawsuits seek to collect on Nancy Lanza’s homeowner’s insurance. Eight of the lawsuits were filed in Superior Court in Bridgeport. One was filed in Danbury.

“As we have previously stated, AR -15 combat rifles designed to inflict mass causalities have no business being marketed and sold to civilians like Nancy Lanza,” said Josh Koskoff of the law firm Koskoff, Koskoff and Bieder in Bridgeport, CT, who represents eight of the claimants, and whose firm has filed suit against Bushmaster and other defendants for the negligent entrustment of the AR-15 to the general population according to a press release from the firm. SOURCE

Let me say this as nicely as I can; I do realize that were talking about many dead children here, and I don’t intend to denigrate those children or the adults that were killed when an INSANE little piece of garbage went OFF and killed them all, so here goes.

Nancy Lanza did not murder these people, the weapons that she legally owned did not murder these people, an insane juvenile, Nancy Lanza’s son, Adam Lanza murdered the victims of Sandy Hook with weapons he basically STOLE from his mother.

If Nancy Lanza was guilty of anything it would be failing to properly secure the weapons and ammunition that SHE owned.

I do not want to start a firestorm about which weapons or the number of rounds Adam Lanza used in his heinous spree of violence, that is, as far as I am concerned, irrelevant to the point of the original story that inspired this post and to the TRUE intent of the civil suit itself.

Lanza AdamBut for the record; said this regarding Adam Lanza: Setting the Record Straight: Adam Lanza Did use the Bushmaster AR-15.

OK, so he used an AR-15. He could have armed himself with a 12GA shotgun just as easily and would have been, at least in MY opinion, better armed for close-in shooting.

Regardless the weapons used by Adam Lanza, the law suit that has been filed by Josh Koskoff of the law firm Koskoff, Koskoff and Bieder isn’t about anything other than a new attack on the Second Amendment rights of people just like you and me; legal gun owners and the weapons that we chose to own. 

“One reason for this is that unlike in the military and law enforcement, there is no oversight of civilian use and storage of these weapons. Studies have repeatedly shown that, unfortunately, only about 50 percent of gun owners store their weapons properly. Bushmaster knows this but continues to sell AR-15s to the public anyway,” Koskoff said.

Whether Bushmaster sells rifles to the public or not is not a legitimate part of this story my friends, it is simply a *back door* attack on an individual weapon.The rifles that are made and sold by Bushmaster didn’t get up one morning and decide to go out and commit mass murder.

Nancy Lanza didn’t properly secure her weapons, that is a given, and she paid the price for that grievous error, but Adam Lanza was as nutty as a fruit cake, and that may not be the fault of Nancy Lanza but she should have been aware of Adam Lanza’s instability, and as such, yes, I agree that the guns should have been effectively secured.

But consider this, which became a very important part of the story, albeit after the fact; Newtown gunman had interest in other mass murders

If these parents filing suit against Nancy Lanza’s estate want to be genuine in their own actions perhaps they need to spend the money that they most likely will receive in the effort to EDUCATE others on gun safety, secure storage and such, but even more importantly; they could advocate for keeping guns out of the hands of people like Adam Lanza through proper psychological evaluation.

Below is the editorial I wrote right after this tragedy unfolded, when the anti-gun crowd was screaming for ALL guns to be banned, and it covers a bit of the *psychological* aspect of the argument, and it is a slippery slope.

City worker faces fallout after claiming Ferguson police shooting was a ‘set up’ Sat, 14 Mar 2015 16:42:40 +0000 Continue reading ]]> Pay attention my friends, this is an educational post that delves into the topic of TRUTH and how critical it is to TELL the truth when being interviewed by Mainstream Media.

City worker faces fallout after claiming Ferguson police shooting was a ‘set up’

UPLANDS PARK, Mo. (KTVI) — There has been sharp criticism of an Uplands Park city worker who said live on FOX News that the shooting of the two officers was a “set up” by police.

John Muhammad identified himself as city manager of the tiny north county village of Uplands Park during a live interview Thursday night on FOX News channel. SOURCE

John Muhammad

This is a picture of John Muhammad, the character making the statements above and claiming to be *The City Manager* of Uplands Park, MO.

Well, as strange as it may seem, apparently, in Uplands Park they have a different way of defining topics where Muhammad is concerned. It seems that *City Manager*, when translated into REAL WORLD SPEAK, comes out to be VILLAGE IDIOT and LIAR.

John Muhammad identified himself as city manager of the tiny north county village of Uplands Park during a live interview Thursday night on FOX News channel.

Muhammad whose been involved in the protests, is now feeling the backlash. Uplands Park is taking swift action.

Muhammad was interviewed by FOX News reporter Steve Harrigan Thursday night during a broadcast at the vigil in front of the Ferguson police department. He identified himself as the city manager of the tiny north county community, a title that insinuates one who runs the day to day operations of the city.

Here is where that TRUTH thing comes into play. Muhammad made this statement while representing himself as *City Manager* 

“I think it was a complete set up,” Muhammad said during a FOX News interview. “I think it was a set up between members of the police fraternity; what I like to call them. I think they operate just like the KKK. I think they did it to make themselves a victim when honestly the victim are black people. I think it’s just a publicity stunt no more than that.”

Upland Park officials, REAL ones, responded with this; 

Uplands Park officials are furious at those comments. The head of the Uplands Park board of trustees that runs the village says Muhammad is neither the city manager nor the city administrator.

“We don’t agree with it here at Uplands Park. We have suspended John Muhammad,” said chairman Michel Spurling. “I was angry because he’s actually hired as a village clerk.”

To which Muhammad responded;

“I’m not caught up on titles or anything like that. My official title is city administrator. If he says it’s clerk, then I guess it’s clerk,” said Muhammad. “I think people had a misconception of what I said. I made a statement under the first amendment of the constitution freedom of speech; that’s what I said.”

Which, when translated to REAL WORLD SPEAK comes out as; ‘OK, so ya’ll caught me telling a lie and misrepresenting myself on national television but that isn’t the issue we are facing, the issue is, FREE SPEECH and I exercised my free speech and now these racist White folks is suspending me and thinking of firing me just because I’m Black, I’m also a  liar as well as I’m a race baiter and it’s Bush’s fault…’


It also appears that the St. Louis Police Officers Association took umbrage at the words of Muhammad too.

The head of the police officers association takes a dim view of Muhammad’s statements.

“I believe in the first amendment. I believe in the right to freedom of speech. But, there’s a responsibility with the words that come out of your mouth,” said Jeff Roorda of the St. Louis Police Officers Association.

Right now, Muhammad has been suspended from his job in Uplands Park. The village board will meet Monday and make a decision whether to fire him.

I don’t know what course of action Upland Park will pursue, I hope they have the BALLS to take a stand and to fire this race baiting LIAR and soon to be professional activist as he falls under the tutelage of Louis Farrakhan, Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton.

Oh c’mon, you KNOW he will, he’s well on his way already. Here are a couple of the *tweets* he made about Ferguson and the part that he plays in it.

Headed to the #Fergsuon Police Station to do what I do best. AGITATE!#ProfessionalAgitator #HandsUpDontShoot #NoJusticeNoPeace


Being a professional agitator must pay pretty well, Louie, Al and Jesse don’t look hungry.

In closing; it was NOT the claim he made about the Police *staging* the shooting, it was NOT his activity in the protests, it was NOT his reference to the KKK or his personal racism and obvious stupidity that got him in trouble. John Muhammad is entitled to his beliefs, his racism and his stupidity, he is NOT entitled to lying about his position with Upland Park and misrepresenting himself as something he is not.

2 officers shot at protest outside Ferguson police station Thu, 12 Mar 2015 11:56:52 +0000 Continue reading ]]> 2 officers shot at protest outside Ferguson police station

FERGUSON, Mo. (AP) — Two officers were shot in front of the Ferguson Police Department early Thursday, authorities said, as demonstrators gathered after the resignation of the city’s police chief in the wake of a scathing Justice Department report alleging bias in the police department and court.

A 32-year-old officer from nearby Webster Groves was shot in the face and a 41-year-old officer from St. Louis County was shot in the shoulder, St. Louis County Police Chief Jon Belmar said at a news conference. Both were taken to a hospital, where Belmar said they were conscious. He said he did not have further details about their conditions but described their injuries as “serious.”

“I don’t know who did the shooting, to be honest with you,” Belmar said, adding that he could not provide a description of the suspect or gun.

He said his “assumption” was that, based on where the officers were standing and the trajectory of the bullets, “these shots were directed exactly at my officers.” SOURCE

Answers for Michael Brown

Let me start this by saying; YOU PEOPLE, you bunch of ANIMALS in Ferguson, you don’t want JUSTICE, you don’t want ANSWERS, all you want is to be exactly what you have long been accused of being and what you have been called. YEP, THAT word!

You raised so much hell that Officer Darren Wilson lost his job and now he, and his family are living in fear for their lives.

You got the President of the United States and the U.S. Attorney General involved in this highly politicized BULLSHIT. 

ALL investigations found Officer Wilson not guilty of anything more than doing his job, but YOU PEOPLE stood and protested, rioted, and whatever other acts of anarchy and lawlessness you engaged it.

ALL investigations found that the *HANDS UP DON’T SHOOT* thing was a lie and just some kind of ignorant catalyst that YOU PEOPLE used in your silly looking marches and riots, walking around with your hands in the air and your pants hanging off your STUPID asses. 

You get the U.S. Department of Justice involved because YOU PEOPLE claim that this Michael Brown, a now dead STREET THUG, was a choir boy that never did a thing that was wrong was murdered by a WHITE Police Officer, but there’s one thing wrong with that; the DOJ, under the direction of Eric Holder, a BLACK MAN, and one that, in HIS past, engaged in acts of racial violence himself, couldn’t find ANY evidence that your BOY Brown was murdered.

So, guilty or not, the City of Ferguson, under FEDERAL ORDERS is doing all it can to rectify the situation.

Ferguson, Missouri, Police Chief Thomas Jackson resigned Wednesday, joining a string of city officials ousted in the wake of a Justice Department report that found a culture of racism in the police department and city offices. SOURCE

The City of Ferguson is being forced to turn over a *new leaf* and this is what they get?

The U.S. government has surrendered Ferguson to YOU PEOPLE that have caused the violence, the strife and the hatred yet YOU PEOPLE in Ferguson keep right on going with even more anarchy and violence.

My personal hope is that every Officer in Ferguson walks off the job and leaves the city to YOU PEOPLE. I hope you burn Ferguson to the ground, with every one of YOU PEOPLE trapped inside the conflagration.

I anxiously await the condemnation and outrage from Black Leaders for these acts of violence. I guess I had best not hold my breath!

Black Leadership: With Hypocrisy, Prejudice and Hatred for All Tue, 10 Mar 2015 14:38:57 +0000 Continue reading ]]> Black Leadership: With Hypocrisy, Prejudice and Hatred for All

3 Black Cops

From the blog of Johnathan Gentry:

Now I want you to see how this works, The Black community will march, protest, Riot/Loot & scream racism, chatting that sorry “Black Live matter” NONSENSE for thugs! But you don’t see any activist, civil rights & community leaders outraged about these fine gentlemen who was killed in the line of duty while serving (recently). Call me Uncle Tom if you want too! I’m just showing you how degenerated & backwards minded the black community has become. R.I.P Gentlemen! My prayers go out to each one of your families. I salute you! Johnathan Gentry

Johnathan Gentry is, from everything I can find about him on line, a fine, upstanding young man that has his head on straight, a man that lives his life for the Lord and strives to tell the truth in all matters and to better the lives of others.

Regarding the Officers pictured above, Police Officer Brennan Rabain, Police Officer Robert Wilson and Police Officer Terence Green, I had this to say on my Facebook Page, The Thin Blue Line — Coast to Coast:

The utter hypocrisy of the Black community and their leaders is inexcusable… These lives mattered… Where is the outrage? ‪#‎BlackLivesMatter

From Johnathan Gentry’s Facebook page:

My purpose of my previous post was to give my prayers & condolences to these fallen Police officer’s families. Which none of these leaders dared to even acknowledge. To also show you that it’s EXTREMELY EVIDENT that these (current) civil rights & black leaders; pick, choose & select what they want that’s keeping racism & division alive in the Black community, By perpetuating “selected events” that will stir weak, debilitated minds up making them feel oppressed, & victimized; having them think it’s someone else’s fault on why they are, where they are. Which is a STRAIGHT LIE from Hell!! You want change? YOU CHANGE IT!!! I’m taking your mind to higher ground in the name of The Lord. #AllLivesMatter

I may be a lot of things, I certainly get accused of being a vile racist, by Black and White, but only the ignorant would try to float that by you and sell it as truth, much like those that accuse Johnathan Gentry of being an *Uncle Tom* when all he is doing is looking for a way for ALL people to get a fair shake and speaking words of TRUTH. 

Do you remember the riots in Ferguson Missouri? Unless you’ve been living under a rock there is NO WAY you haven’t heard of them. Well, here is a YouTube video of Johnathan Gentry speaking his mind regarding Ferguson.

And from HIS Facebook page I give you this:

How many times do you have to remind communities. If you fight with a Police officer & try to take their weapon. “You’re getting Shot!” (smh) Don’t go pulling the race card (or) screaming Police brutality. If you try to take a Police officer’s weapon. You’re getting lit up like the 4th of July!!

How hard is that to understand?

I am not about to even attempt to convince you that ALL Cops are *stand up* guys, nor am I going to try to make you believe that ALL Cops are 100%, by the book Dudley Do-right characters either. They aren’t, but by far, the vast majority of Police Officers are doing a job that doesn’t pay enough, that could easily cost them their lives and yet, as I said, the vast majority go to work and are HONEST in their actions.

I don’t know the ethnicity of the persons that murdered Police Officer Brennan Rabain, Police Officer Robert Wilson and Police Officer Terence Green and to be honest with you, I have my own suspicions but that is irrelevant. The fact is; 3 Black Officers are dead and the silence of the usual *race baiters* makes me believe that the perpetrators are most likely Black as well.

And if I am correct the hypocrisy of Black leadership is indeed nothing more than a bunch of *One Way* race baiters, reparations slugs and all around sorry-assed slugs.

Obama Treading On Treason With Treaty With Iran Without Congress Consent Mon, 09 Mar 2015 15:43:33 +0000 Continue reading ]]> Obama Treading On Treason With Treaty With Iran Without Congress Consent

we the people

Fox News host Greta Van Susteren hammered President Obama and took him back to law school to remind him of the Constitution amidst the imminent Iranian nuclear deal.

Van Susteren went ‘off the record’ to remind the so-called “constitutional law professor” that he alone does not have the power to single-handedly make a deal with Iran, according to the Constitution.

“Article two, Section two, Clause two of the Constitution includes the treaty clause, which empowers the president to propose and negotiate agreements between the United States and other nations which become treaties after – yes, after – the advice and consent of a super majority of the U.S. Senate,” Van Susteren said. “Now, that means the president has no power to make a deal solely with Iran. Solely alone, he can’t do that.”

Her response came after she played a clip of White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest saying the administration is hesitant to come to Congress with an agreement before doing so with Iran. SOURCE

OK, so, it would be illegal for Obama to, on his own, with no legislative branch authority, to enter into a treaty agreement with Iran on ANY topic actually, but more specifically, one relating to Iran and nuclear power.

It’s against the writings of the U.S. Constitution, it is, according to Greta Van Susteren, bordering on an act of treason, and therefore is aiding and abetting an ENEMY of this nation, which is in fact an act of treason.

Who would dare to cross Obama and write the Articles of Impeachment and accusations of treason?

Who is going to enforce the law and take Obama into custody? The Senate? Maybe the U.S. Congress?

Which members of the Senate or House would have the guts to place Obama on trial?

Who on the Federal level would even have the courage to arrest Barack Hussein Obama if you were to actually find a way to officially bring charges, an indictment on violations of Federal Law and acts of treason, or a Federal magistrate that would issue an arrest warrant? 

That’s a long list of who, how and IF my friends.

“Ultimately, we can’t put in place an additional hurdle for that agreement to overcome here at the eleventh hour,” Earnest said at a press conference.

“Hurdle? That clause is not a hurdle,” Van Susteren responded. “Josh Earnest may think it trivial, but I don’t. It’s the Constitution, to be respected and adhered to.”

Remember if Obama does try to push this “go it alone” as his spokesman said, then Obama is in direct violation of the U.S. Constitution.

I believe most of us are fully convinced that this action, and nearly every other act that has been committed by the Obama regime is indeed illegal and violates the law of the land, but again I say; WHO is going to stop Obama?

To Greta Van Susteren, on the off chance that you’re reading this, I’ll make you an offer;
YOU find the folks willing to file charges against Obama, enough members of the Senate and House to affect a prosecution.

If you can do all of that then you should be able to find a Federal Magistrate that will appoint me to the position of Temporary Chief Deputy United States Marshal, Chief of the Obama Arrest Task Force and grant me the ability to personally form that arrest task force with Officers of MY choosing.

Obama will be cuffed and stuffed in very short order IF, and I do say IF, you can find the officials that will start the process rolling.

What are the odds of ANY of that happening? Good luck on your next Powerball ticket.

From the news this AM: WASHINGTON (AP) — Forty-seven Republican senators warned Monday that any agreement the Obama administration strikes with Iran to limit Tehran’s nuclear program may be short-lived unless Congress approves the deal.

Will they stand together? Why only 47 Senators? Why not ALL Republican Senators?

Obama: I First Learned About Hillary Emails ‘Through News Reports’ Sun, 08 Mar 2015 18:18:53 +0000 Continue reading ]]> Obama: I First Learned About Hillary Emails ‘Through News Reports’

Chuck Ross — Reporter

President Obama confirmed Saturday that he learned about Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email as secretary of state through the news.

“When did you first learn that Hillary Clinton used an email system outside of official business while she was secretary of state?” CBS News White House correspondent Bill Plante asked Obama during an interview on Saturday.

“The same time everybody else learned it through news reports,” Obama said, confirming something White House press secretary Josh Earnest hinted at, but did not confirm earlier in the week.

Asked if he was disappointed in Clinton’s private email use — a work-around which violated State Department rules, White House policy and potentially broke federal law — Obama demurred.

“Let me just say that Hillary Clinton is and has been an outstanding public servant. She was a great secretary of state for me,” he said. SOURCE

Many ask; how can Obama not know what is going on in his regime, how is it he only knows once the *media* makes him aware of it? How can the President of the United States not have any more of an idea about HIS group of ne’er do wells than the general population?

Is Obama kept in *the dark* to protect him from the *fallout* that is constantly coming down on him and his *Clown Posse*? Plausible deniability maybe? 

I’m going out on a limb here and making a guess to the answer to the above; Barack Hussein Obama is a LIAR of the 1st order and he believes that WE, THE PEOPLE are actually buying into his stream of endless lies and BS. 

You can’t be any more plain-spoken than that.

I can’t even find an accurate list of the number of times Obama has said, “I heard about it on the news.” And that leads me to believe that Obama is the most incompetent fool and tool of the Left to ever infest the Oval Office OR, he is the biggest LIAR in the entire history of this nation.

Either way; I blame the GUTLESS United States Congress and Senate for allowing Obama to continue in this string of lies, corruption and criminal activity.

Until BOTH Houses find the courage to STOP Obama this is all we can expect, and as long as Mitch McConnell and *Orange Glow* John Boehner are leading those Houses, we are in the deep end of the pool with no life jacket.

Dems Rally Around Boehner to Thwart Conservative Coup Sat, 07 Mar 2015 07:48:25 +0000 Continue reading ]]> Dems Rally around Boehner to Thwart Conservative Coup

‘Some of these characters came here thinking they’re going to change the world’

(The Hill) – Tea Party Republicans contemplating a bid to oust Rep. John Boehner (R-Ohio) shouldn’t count on Democrats to help them unseat the Speaker.

And without their support, there is no chance to topple Boehner in this Congress.

A number of right-wing Republicans, long-wary of Boehner’s commitment to GOP efforts attacking President Obama’s policy priorities, have openly considered a coup in an attempt to transfer the gavel into more conservative hands.

But Democrats from across an ideological spectrum say they’d rather see Boehner remain atop the House than replace him with a more conservative Speaker who would almost certainly be less willing to reach across the aisle in search of compromise. Replacing him with a Tea Party Speaker, they say, would only bring the legislative process — already limping along — to a screeching halt. SOURCE

I have never cared where the TRUTH came from as long as it was the TRUTH and had the ability to stand on its own. Well my friends, I am no fool, I know pictures can be photo shopped to make most anything look like it’s real, but in this case, a picture is worth 1,000 words, and it IS real.

112th Congress Convenes On Capitol Hill

Boehner has a lot of support in Congress, from the GOP because every last one of the GOP Congressional members are afraid of him and the power he wields, and even more importantly, he has a lot of support from the Democrats, the very ones that he and the GOP are supposed to keep in check, not because the Dems are afraid of him, oh no, fear has nothing to do with it.

The Dems support John Boehner because is as much a Democrat as they are.

My question, the one I REALLY want answered is this; how long do you keep defending this POS RINO bastard? How much more does Congress think the USA can stand?

How much more does the GOP think that WE, THE PEOPLE are going to take? 

“I’d probably vote for Boehner [because] who the hell is going to replace him? [Ted] Yoho?,” Rep. Bill Pascrell (D-N.J.) said Wednesday, referencing the Florida Tea Party Republican who’s fought Boehner on a host of bipartisan compromise bills.

“In terms of the institution, I would rather have John Boehner as the Speaker than some of these characters who came here thinking that they’re going to change the world,” Pascrell added.

The TEA Party has serious leadership issues, or, more precisely, lacks a focused leader that can rally the numbers needed to wrest power from RINOs like Boehner and to restore ADULT leadership to the Halls of Congress.

The GOP is led by *weak sister* types like Reince Priebus, aka *Short Bus*, and regardless of the numbers, the GOP may have the *majority* but the sure don’t have THE POWER.

Boehner, who has grappled with dissent from the Tea Party wing since he took the Speaker’s gavel in 2011, has seen opposition to his reign grow this year, even as he commands the largest GOP majority since the Hoover administration.

As I said; the numbers say majority, the actions say very little else.

When I was still supporting Pete Sessions (TX-32) I had already cut my ties with the TEA Party due to THEIR lack of leadership and Sessions made me aware that the GOP was going to stand against the TEA Party and any leadership that may emerge, and they have done just that.

The Mainstream GOP made it very clear a while back; they insisted that if TEA Party candidates were elected, once they got to Washington they would immediately be co-opted into the GOP, in other words; no individual thinking will be allowed, you will do as you are told to do and you will support who and what you are told to support, or Lord High Boehner will remove you from any position of power you may hold or will stop you from ever attaining any power what so ever.

Any lawmaker may file a motion to “vacate” a sitting Speaker, a move that would force a vote of the full House. The effort would almost certainly fail, as the conservatives would need the overwhelming support of Democrats to win a majority. But it would be an embarrassing setback to Boehner and his leadership team, who entered the year hoping their commanding new majority would alleviate some of the whipping problems that had plagued them in the past.

Here is where COURAGE comes into play and far too many just don’t have it. The GOP has the majority numbers but they are afraid of Boehner, the Dems are supporting him because he is the strongest ally the Democrats have ever had.

So, here we are, stuck with GUTLESS Congressional members that play by the rules of *Political Correctness* as they feed from the trough of U.S. tax dollars.

Our Founding Fathers didn’t *DO* political correctness, they spoke their minds, stood and looked adversity in the eye and did what was RIGHT for America.

I’m fairly confident that at the very least our Founding Fathers would BITCH SLAP each and every one of these GUTLESS cretins in Congress, or, quite possibly, call them out to the yard and challenge them to a duel for the damage they are causing the United States.

Why Vote Republican? Thu, 05 Mar 2015 12:09:03 +0000 Continue reading ]]> Why Vote Republican? I ask myself that question on a regular basis and the only answer I have come up with so far it that old, tired and worn out; *The Lesser of The Two Evils*.

I’m not the only one asking that question, but it sure seems like we’re ALL coming up with some less than satisfactory answers.
Dead ElephantWhy Vote Republican?

By Dr. Brian C Joondeph

Brian C. JoondephEvery two years before the midterm elections, we hear Republican candidates promise that if elected they will rein in the Obama administration excesses – Obamacare, amnesty, trillion-dollar deficits, increasing government regulation, legislative transparency, and unlawful executive orders. Like Lucy promising Charlie Brown a shot at the football, Republicans promise each time that things will be different.

Yet Lucy continues to lift the football at the last minute, leaving the hapless Charlie Brown kicking at air.

Immediately after the November midterms, the president announced his amnesty plan. Republicans, fresh from landslide victories in congressional, state, and local elections, were well-positioned to flex their newfound muscle by re-establishing constitutional checks and balances on an overzealous executive branch. Instead, Senate Majority Leader McConnell folded like a cheap suit, abandoning efforts to defund President Obama’s amnesty efforts.

Tell me again why we need Republican majorities in Congress.

Sure, we get the usual excuses. Harry Reid and the minority control the Senate to such an extent that Reid can force Republicans to abandon an extremely popular position. That pesky filibuster – the same one that Democrats eliminated a few years ago when they were in power and wanted to bypass Republican resistance for judicial and executive appointments. Why can’t Senator McConnell trigger the same “nuclear option” now?

What about Obamacare? It remains alive and well despite Republican promises to “repeal and replace.” The truth about Benghazi remains elusive, now over two years after the fact, despite recent e-mails debunking then-secretary of state Hillary Clinton’s explanations. Lois Lerner’s missing e-mails remain elusive, without explanation or accountability. The deficits remain at the trillion-dollar level, with the national debt spiraling out of control. And the government is now taking over the internet via a secret plan, without protest from Congress.

Republican voters wanted the opposite. Would things really be different if Pelosi and Reid still ran Congress rather than Boehner and McConnell? The left’s agenda marches merrily along, with little resistance other than a few words or excuses.

The latest excuse from Republican leadership is that they need the White House before they can accomplish anything. Really? What the Republicans need is backbone and leadership. Ronald Reagan ushered in hugely effective income tax cuts while working with a Democrat Congress. A Republican Congress enacted welfare reform despite initial opposition from Democrat President Bill Clinton. A Democrat Congress was able to raise taxes despite Republican George “read my lips, no new taxes” Bush in the White House. Legislation can and does move forward despite divided government.

Margaret Thatcher told us, “Consensus is the absence of leadership.” If the Republican leadership is waiting for consensus with the Democrats, that will never happen. Rather, they should be making their case, standing by their principles and promises, and fulfilling the mandate they were given last November. Republican voters don’t expect victory with each issue, but they do expect a principled stand and a fight, not a concession at the end of the first quarter.

Let the president wield his veto pen. Congress has given him next to nothing to veto. In his six years as president, he has vetoed three bills, with two of those during his first two years in office, when the Democrats controlled Congress. Republicans have controlled the House since 2010 and the House and Senate currently, yet we have only one veto in the last five years, and that within the last month.

There are still constitutional options for Republicans against the president bypassing Congress entirely. Defunding and impeachment are both politically challenging, but legitimate nonetheless. But the Republican leadership have taken these off the table, further limiting their options.

Giving in to Democrat opposition, as they have done with amnesty, debt ceilings, continuing spending resolutions, and other “line in the sand” issues leaves voters to scratch their heads, wondering what’s different having Congress under Republican control.

The 2016 elections will be pivotal for Republicans, with a chance to win the White House and maintain control of Congress. Unless they make the case as to why this is important, voters will tune out and stay home, as they did in 2012. Despite President Obama’s unpopularity, Mitt Romney garnered 3 million fewer votes than did John McCain four years previously.

If Republican voters believe, to borrow from Mrs. Clinton, “What difference does it make?” they will stay home again in 2016. The Republican Congress, as evidenced by the amnesty capitulation, is doing little to help.

Brian C Joondeph, M.D., MPS, a Denver-based physician, is an advocate of smaller, more efficient government. Twitter @retinaldoctor.

I have made some damned serious accusations against the GOP as a whole, I believe that the actions we saw taken by the GOP House removed ALL doubt that I have been mostly correct.

I have also said, repeatedly, in my younger days I was a Democrat, not a Libber, but I voted mostly for Democratic candidates. I have also, for 30 or so years now, qualified that with this statement; I didn’t leave the Democratic Party, THEY left me.

Sad to say that once again I am seeing a Party leave ME, this time it’s the GOP, so, where do we go from here?

The TEA Party has some good ideas but they have too many Ron Paul Libtards at the helm. The Constitution Party maybe? Who knows at this point, but I know this; we, as in NONE OF US can sit it out, we have to try, maybe we just need to try something new.

Our Founding Fathers would have been shooting by now, just sayin’…

The House passed a bill Tuesday afternoon to fund the Department of Homeland Security for the rest of the fiscal year, sending it to President Obama for his expected signature. The measure will not target Obama’s executive actions on immigration, giving Democrats what they have long demanded and potentially enraging conservatives bent on fighting the president on immigration.

The vote was 257-167, with some Republicans joining all Democrats who voted to pass the bill, which had already cleared the Senate.

“As you’ve heard me say a number of times, the House has done its job by passing legislation to fund DHS and block the president’s executive actions on immigration,” Speaker John A. Boehner (Ohio) told rank-and-file Republicans in a Tuesday morning meeting, according to a person in the room. “Unfortunately, the fight was never won in the other chamber.” SOURCE

The first words I hear spoken on television news and see written on social media are *GOP Caves* to Obama’s Amnesty, and a goodly number of GOP Congressman have done exactly that.

The first picture I find of Boehner is this; Sad Boehner.

John Boehner

He looks like he’s about to cry, again… Maybe he has heard of this Conservative old guy in Texas that has a blog and the intestinal fortitude to actually SAY what so many others only think.

Take a look at the link below to see how YOUR Congress Critter voted. 

H.R. 240: Department of Homeland Security Appropriations Act, 2015

I have made NO secret of the fact that I detest John Boehner, I believe he is a LIAR, he is an Obama supporter, he is a dictatorial and vindictive Congressional leader and he is a RINO, Republican In Name Only. Boehner voted FOR this bastard of a bill and seriously, I doubt that the majority of his constituents wanted him to do so.

Maybe it’s time for a new blogger to emerge onto the scene from Boehner’s district in Ohio and call him out for all of the RINO moves he makes.

Pete Sessions Statement on the DHS Funding Bill

WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Congressman Pete Sessions (R-TX), Chairman of the House Rules Committee, today released the following statement regarding the Department of Homeland Security bill that did not address the President’s unlawful executive amnesty plan:

“In January the House passed a bill to fund the Department of Homeland Security and block executive amnesty. The Senate has had nearly two months to debate this issue, yet Senate Democrats repeatedly obstructed the process and refused to work with the House to resolve our differences. At this point, it is my belief that Congress should resolve the differences between the House and the Senate through a conference before moving forward. Without the ability to go to conference in order to address the President’s executive amnesty, I could not support the bill.

“While I support providing critical funding for agencies that protect our national security, I cannot support this bill because it does not address the President’s unwise, unlawful, and unconstitutional executive amnesty plan. The President himself has admitted 22 times that he does not have the authority to unilaterally grant amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants in our country, yet he and Senate Democrats have continued to support this blatant, unconstitutional abuse of power. I remain deeply disappointed that the President and Senate Democrats have chosen political posturing over the security of our nation.” SOURCE

I am seriously hoping that Pete Sessions is hearing the cries from Texas House District 32, the cries from his constituents, imploring him to GROW A SET, stand up, tall and Texas Proud and take a Conservative stand against John Boehner and his cohorts.

Personally, I like Pete Sessions, I really do, but I have been terribly disappointed in him for not standing up against Boehner.

Sessions will take a stand against Obama, and Pete is a Texan, so let’s see if Pete can apply some Texas Cowboy Logic here and make Congress understand too; *Cut em all out of the herd. Line em up and call em what they really are; culls, despicable Dems, Dem Lite and RINOs.*

One last thing as a reminder; Dear GOP, YOU WON, stop giving it all back and letting the Democrats cry VICTORY. This may be a victory for the Dems but it’s just one more nail in the coffin that Obama and Company are building for America.

GOP Establishment Group Backs Bill That Funds Obama’s Amnesty Tue, 03 Mar 2015 17:13:23 +0000 Continue reading ]]> GOP Establishment Group Backs Bill That Funds Obama’s Amnesty

McConnell and Cornyn

The GOP’s business wing is openly siding with President Barack Obama’s alliance of progressive and media to pressure conservative GOP legislators into accepting Obama’s executive amnesty.

The new establishment alliance emerged Monday, when a recent top aide to Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus announced a new $400,000 ad campaign that will be aimed at the GOP’s populist anti-amnesty wing, including conservative leaders Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan, Oklahoma Rep. Jim Bridenstine, Kansas Rep. Tim Huelskamp.

The group’s role “really exposes what the failure to fight is all about: amnesty at any cost,” said Dan Holler, a spokesman for Heritage Action.

“Could u imagine the ads they could run against Dems putting handouts 4 illegals ahead of border agents? Instead they are attacking us,” tweeted Dan Horowitz, a conservative advocate. SOURCE

I have said, for quite some time now, the leadership of the United States Senate and the House of Representatives is the biggest enemy the United States faces.

I am not a deeply religious person but that doesn’t mean I don’t know what is said in the Bible. So, according to the Holy Bible, Genesis 18:26, The Lord said to Abraham, “If I find fifty righteous people in the city of Sodom, I will spare the whole place for their sake.”

If the Lord came back today and took ONE LOOK at Washington, D.C. and both Houses of Congress, he would start throwing lightning bolts in great numbers because I am of the opinion that there is not a righteous man in the whole crowd of them.

Mitch McConnell and John Cornyn are nothing more than RINOs, Republicans In Name Only, and most of the Senate falls under the RINO brand, not ALL members, but most do.

The very same can be said for House Speaker John Boehner; he, and his posse of clowns are nothing more than RINOs that don’t have the backbone to stand up for America, to stand up for the will of the people and the courage to stand against Barack Hussein Obama and his *crime spree* and acts that border on TREASON, if not in fact actual acts OF treason.
