Praying that Donald Trump can save Americas freedoms!

REPUBLICAN LEADERSHIP

I just read an article titled, “Boehner Takes Revenge” that is a perfect example of what is wrong with American politics and why America is totally leaderless. Revenge is not how you unite America as Obama, Reid, Holder, Sotomayor, Hagen, Pelosi and Ginsberg have demonstrated these past six years. When will America elect real leaders to manage our future rather than the career politicians we have today?

This article was well written by Jake Sherman and John Bresnahan and I just want to share some of the facts they recorded along with some personal observations.

  1. Immediately after he was re-elected Speaker Boehner removed Daniel Webster and Richard Nugent from the powerful “Rules Committee”. Not because they are not well qualified but obviously because they voted against him. Webster, supported by Nugent, openly ran against Boehner for Speaker. Webster is the former Florida statehouse speaker and state Senate majority leader. Boehner’s actions prove that political revenge is the way to demonstrate GOP “Leadership” in Washington today.
  2. The article also reported that Boehner and his power allies have warned all who opposed him that other retaliation could be expected. Retaliation is another new word used in Washington as a replacement for “Leadership”. This new Republican “cabal” is carefully reviewing the list of members who voted against the speaker. They are also reviewing every Republican who voted against the procedural motion in December on the so-called “crominibus,” the $1.1 trillion spending package to keep the government open through to September. This internal power struggle within the Republican party is another example of how our so called leaders continue to destroy each other rather than focus on conservative values and uniting America that they were elected to provide.
  3. Another example of discontinuity, Virginia Rep. Scott Rigell got appointed to the Appropriations Committee even though he voted for Webster for Speaker. That appointment has infuriated other Boehner loyalists. This is just another example of how the Republicans have mastered the art of “Self-Destruction”. Watch how they implode and divide themselves openly during the next Presidential primaries like they have done for far too many years. Boy, the Democrats must be really getting excited to watch them tear each other apart on live TV these next several months.
  4. Tuesday’s vote resulted in twice as many anti-Boehner votes compared with 2013, noted Rep. Tim Huelskamp (R-Kan.), one of the most vocal thorns in Boehner’s side. Huelskamp said he was unhappy that “only three of the freshmen class” voted against Boehner. Huelskamp said he was denied a chance to get back his seat on the Agriculture Committee because of his opposition to Boehner. The Kansas Republican was removed from the panel in 2012. “I am already hearing from my colleagues, and myself, about retaliation against those who voted their conscience, their constituents, their principles, to change the status quo,” Huelskamp said. “My colleagues fully expect that. That’s what they expect out of this leadership team.”Iowa GOP Rep. Steve King, who voted against Boehner, said, “If you cannot vote your conscience … then it’s clearly a dysfunctional system here.”
  5. Boehner and his “clique” appear convinced that, despite 25 defections, they have a firmer grip on power than ever. They say their “working majority” — members whom Boehner can work with — is around 220 members. “We don’t need these fringe guys as much as we did anymore,” said a GOP leadership aide, speaking on condition of anonymity. “We can let them walk on certain bills, and it just won’t matter. That gives us breathing room.

Watching the internal blood-bath within the Republicans is becoming more like a TV soap opera than managing the business of our country. Unity died in America and the GOP after Ronald Reagan finished his second term. Democrats thrive on conflict and hate and relish the self-destruction actions of the Republicans who have perfected political suicide with revenge and retaliation.

WHO WILL CONTROL AMERICAS FUTURE?

One could go crazy reading and watching the media try to sway the election next month. If I had not watched the media get Obama re-elected in 2012, I would have bet my life on the Republicans winning control of the Senate next month. Watching Americans get brainwashed by the most corrupt media that has ever existed in my 84 years is the saddest event in my lifetime.

I am truly an Independent voter, I just proved that last Monday when I early voted and actually voted for two individuals, one Democrat and one Libertarian. I did not vote for all of the Republicans, I voted against Republicans, Democrats, Libertarian and Green Party individuals who could not find their way out of a paper sack if one end remained open. Sad but our politicians have become so corrupt, unethical, unqualified that in some cases you just have to vote for the best of the worst as no real leader chose to run for some positions.

This year the Republicans, in spite of self-destructing over abortion in some places, are on record to stop the destruction of our Constitutional Republic form of government. The Democrat-Liberal-Progressive power has nearly destroyed our freedoms and they will if left in power. The George Bush Republican-Progressives are powerless at this point in time to control the Republican Party.

Reading the various polls tells me that the Democrats will keep control of the Senate seats in Illinois, Michigan, Minnesota, New Jersey, New Mexico, Oregon and Virginia. It is hard for me as a Texan who has spent a lot of time in New Mexico to understand how the people can keep a Democrat in the Senate. They used to love the freedoms they have now lost and appear to be comfortable with letting Harry Reid control the future. The rest of these States are and have been controlled by morons like Al Franken for so long they have no capacity to even think for themselves anymore.

Looking at the polls they place the following Senate seats in the toss-up category. Alaska/Begich (D), Colorado/Udall (D), Kansas/Roberts (R), Kentucky/McConnell (R), Louisiana/Landrieu (D), New Hampshire/Shaheen and North Carolina/Hagan (D). The polls also show the Senate seats in Iowa and Georgia to be a toss-up. Colorado and Oregon are  no surprise as they are already controlled by potheads. North Carolina like Virginia are no longer conservative. 

Again I am really surprised that the voters in Alaska, Georgia, Kansas, Kentucky, and especially Louisiana appear to be even considering a vote for anyone but the Republican nominee. I live on the Texas/Louisiana border, spend as much time and money in Louisiana as I do in Texas. I have yet to find one Louisiana voter who will admit they voted for Obama but for some reason they keep Mary Landrieu in power to help Harry Reid to cram the courts with Liberal/Progressive Judges like Sotomayor, Ginsburg and Kegan. Like New Mexico I suppose that loss of freedoms in these states is unimportant to the voters anymore?

The polls show that Arkansas/Mark Pryor (D) and South Dakota are leaning toward the Republican candidate and that Mississippi/Cochran and West Virginia will be Republican seats in the next Congress. If Alaska, Arkansas, Georgia, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana or Mississippi elect or re-elect a Democrat to help Harry Reid stay in control of power in the Senate, Socialism will be in place for the next 100 years. I hope someone else cares?
