There is a saying in our military branches which states, “Loose lips sink ships,”  or “Loose lips might sink ships.” Meaning careless talk about military matters can cost damage to our military members, their equipment and their maneuvers.

The same can can apply to politics and political campaigns.  In other words; if you say it … you own it.  Such is the case with the three politicians presented below.  The videos  are sponsored by Americans For Prosperity:

What Rating For Your Congress Critters?

Image

Wonder no more as far as their following what the US Constitution would have them do. The New American has finished the work for you and all you have to do is access their information.

Only one of our (New Mexico’s) critters scored above 50. Click on the link below to read and weep and see how you like all of congress now:

Ratings For Congress Critters

You will find much more to gag from if you plink around the site.  New Mexico just can’t win for losing, but there is some solace in knowing there are state legislators representing other states scoring lower than our “Banana Republic.”

Establishment Republicans Shoving Tea Party Away

Image

So, its looks and feels as though the “establishment republicans,” (ER) are pushing the tea party organizations away from all things republican, but they have already dropped most of their previous conservative planks in their platform … if they truly had one.  As a republican and a tea party member, it might serve the greater good if the tea party rid themselves of the bucket of vipers that the establishment republicans have morphed into  in order to get along with their dance partners on the left side of the aisle.

On the day after several elections in this nation, many pundits have written off the tea party with showers of applause from the ER.

In some elections, the ER have cut their nose off to spite their face.  While the tea party suffered some losses when their supported republicans were ran over by ER money, it is nice to see that a money grubber (Terry McCullough) barely eked out a win in Virginia:

Here’s the story:

The National Republican Senate Committee, the GOP campaign arm responsible for Senate elections, has decided to use its political power to block consulting firm Jamestown Associates from receiving political work from GOP candidates or incumbents.

Jamestown’s “sin” is working with the Senate Conservative Fund, an organization that supports conservative candidates for the US Senate.

NRSC communications staffer Brad Dayspring, a former spokesman for House Majority Leader Rep. Eric Cantor (R-VA), told The New York Times on Friday, “We’re not going to do business with people who profit off of attacking Republicans. Purity for profit is a disease that threatens the Republican Party.”

Jamestown Associates has done work with the Senate Conservatives Fund (SCF), a conservative group largely responsible for the elections of Sens. Ted Cruz (R-TX), Mike Lee (R-UT), Jeff Flake (R-AZ), Marco Rubio (R-FL), Rand Paul (R-KY), Deb Fischer (R-NE), Pat Toomey (R-PA), and Ron Johnson (R-WI), among others. Former Sen. Jim DeMint (R-SC), who left the U.S. Senate last year to become the president of the Heritage Foundation, founded SCF.

“In a warning shot to outside conservative groups, the National Republican Senatorial Committee this week informed a prominent Republican advertising firm that it would not receive any contracts with the campaign committee because of its work with a group that targets incumbent Senate Republicans,” the Times wrote.

“Even more striking,” the Times continued, “a senior official at the committee called individual Republican Senate campaigns and other party organizations this week and urged them not to hire the firm, Jamestown Associates, in an effort to punish them for working for the Senate Conservatives Fund, a group founded by Jim DeMint, then a South Carolina senator, that is trying to unseat Senator Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, the Republican leader, and some other incumbents up for re-election next year whom it finds insufficiently conservative.”

The Times notes that a large part of the reason why SCF has drawn the ire of the GOP establishment is its endorsement of McConnell’s primary challenger, businessman Matt Bevin. McConnell’s chief of staff Josh Holmes, who is now working for the NRSC through the election, told the Times that McConnell plans to beat up SCF for being conservative like he would if it were a bar fight. “S.C.F. has been wandering around the country destroying the Republican Party like a drunk who tears up every bar they walk into,” Holmes said. “The difference this cycle is that they strolled into Mitch McConnell’s bar and he doesn’t throw you out, he locks the door.”

Obama Continues To Mock Americans

Image

He who hides the truth … tells A whopper: Chuck Ring
We know it has been lies and many whoppers time and again from the man from somewhere since he first snuck into the POTUS room in the White House. In some instances, he didn’t actually speak the lie, so much as he hid the truth. And he knew he was hiding the truth every time he ginned up that smile full of teeth which seem, like piano ivory keys, destined to play the deception he has used to great effect … If consistent lies can be counted as “great.”
Here below, you can find an interesting story of the hidden abortion stimulus fund wedded to ObamaDare:
A Flat Cap Flap To CNS & Craig Banister

Today, 72 congressmen sent a letter to House Speaker Rep. John Boehner (R-Ohio) urging him to insert language ending abortion funding and religious discrimination in Obamacare into any funding or debt ceiling legislation.

“[T]he Obama administration has committed unprecedented attacks against the unborn and the religious freedom guaranteed in the Constitution, all under the guise of ‘access to health care,’” the letter tells Boehner.

The letter implores Boehner to “incorporate H.R. 940, the Health Care Conscience Rights Act, along with a cessation of federal dollars for abortions into the continuing resolution or on legislation addressing the debt ceiling.”

H.R. 940 says that nothing in the Obamacare law “shall require an individual to purchase individual health insurance coverage that includes coverage of an abortion or other item or service to which such individual has a moral or religious objection, or prevent an issuer from offering or issuing, to such individual, individual health insurance coverage that excludes such item or service.”

H.R. 940 also protects employers and health insurers from being forced to buy or provide coverage for things to which they have a “moral or religious objection.”

Americans morally opposed to funding abortion may unwittingly sign up for one that does due to Obamacare’s “secrecy clause,” the letter warns:

“[U]nder the secrecy clause, plans that cover abortion are only allowed to disclose the abortion surcharge ‘as a part of the summary of benefits and coverage explanation, at the time of enrollment.’ Many families may choose a plan that covers abortion without realizing it or because the plan is the only one that covers the critical care that their family needs.”

An abortion “slush fund” bankrolled by a separate “abortion fee” charged to enrollees should also be struck from Obamacare, the letter says:

“Anyone who enrolls in a federally-subsidized health care plan that covers elective abortions will pay a separate ‘abortion fee’ of at least $1 per month into an abortion slush fund to pay for abortion on demand.”

Obama: Don’t Listen To Them, Come Die On This Hill With Me

Image

The title above was meant to repeat the attitude of Obama when it comes to citizens’ relationship with their elected congress people.
There is something terribly little “mannish,” about such an attitude, but then, we are talking about the man habitually using his office to shine above the citizens around him.  The problem with such an attitude when it come to “punishing,” Syria is Obama doesn’t know anything about waging war; nor does he have sense enough to use the counsel he could obtain from real advisers.   
         
We can hope, but we cannot expect Obama to grow-up and there is not time enough to teach him the ways of war.  Below is an article from Reason.com which  puts Obama’s deficiencies in the open … where they should be.

As members of Congress mull over President Barack Obama’s request for authorization for military strikes on Syria, the response from constituents so far has been loud and consistent: No.

And that response is as it should be.  The American citizens are just tired of being taken for fools who will believe everything a spying president and his security apparatus feeds them.  The majority of Americans ain’t buying anymore pablum and binkies they have sold us in the past.

Obama’s message to those Congress members? Don’t listen to them. Listen to me! From ABC News:

President Obama today conceded that he could fail to convince the American public to back proposed U.S. military strikes against Syria, but said that members of Congress should vote to approve the action anyway.

I am hoping the congress critters have had enough of failed ideas from Mr. Obama, and they send a clear message of, “Not no, but Hell no.”  Perhaps I am somewhat delusional, but one can hope.

 “It’s conceivable that, at the end of the day, I don’t persuade a majority of the American people that it’s the right thing to do,” Obama said in response to a question from ABC News during a solo press conference at the conclusion of the G20 summit in St. Petersburg, Russia.

The above quote should give pause and allow or cause us to say, “Exactly what we hope you reap from this bad idea.”

But, Obama said, members of Congress need to consider the lessons of World War II and their own consciences and vote ‘yes’ to authorize the use of force, even if it means going against the opinion of the majority of their constituents.

What do they have to lose by ignoring the people who vote for them in favor of an ill-formed plan from a second-term president looking forward to a lifetime of easy five-figure dinner speeches?

What “they,” have to lose is self-respect if they vote to bomb and a terrible president if they vote not to bomb.  I’ll vote for the latter.
