Conservatives Anonymous

Just got this email from the Cruz Campaign:

The Cruz for President campaign today launched a new TV ad, “Conservatives Anonymous,” illustrating how Marco Rubio has betrayed the trust of the American people by breaking his campaign promise to fight amnesty. Instead, once elected, Rubio worked closely with Democrat Senator Chuck Schumer and aggressively fought to pass the Gang of Eight amnesty bill in the Senate. This ad is the first in a series that will soon air focused on how conservatives have been betrayed by their elected officials in Washington, D.C. who fail to keep their promises to fight for conservative principles.

Cruz takes Iowa

The most Republican votes EVER in Iowa went to Texas senator Ted Cruz.

Not bad.  Not bad at all.

cruzI’ve listened to the Trump followers for the last couple of weeks, and I’ve gotta say, I’m a little bit surprised.  Especially after the endorsement of Sarah Palin, and the late polls suggesting Trump up by 7-10 points.  To win this first in the nation test is pretty sweet.

 

Now, on to New Hampshire.

 

 

 

Let’s get serious about guns for a moment

When The Moment Is Right: A Conservative Coup In The House?

JD Winteregg had a pretty funny campaign ad in his unsuccessful run against John Boehner in 2014.  You might remember the “Electile Dysfunction” video.

Winteregg did a lot better than many expected, but the power of incumbency, especially for the Speaker of the House was too much to overcome.

This time, it is rank and file Republicans who are openly weighing a revolt against Boehner’s leadership team after their underwhelming performance in the opening weeks of the new Congress.

Is it time to finally say, “Bye Bye Boehner?”

Here is a statement from Rep. John Fleming, LA in a story by the Washington Times:

“The problem is we are used to being in this moderate lane and the people, our constituents who are sending us here, are trying to move us over into the more conservative lane,” said the Louisiana Republican. “I think the struggle is that leadership has not yet picked up the trim line that they need to put out more conservative legislation to get better results”

The leadership either doesn’t get it, or they are being deliberately obtuse.  They campaign on conservative ideas, but govern timidly, firmly established in the mushy middle.  Conservatives are tired of the game, and Mr. Fleming is absolutely correct.

The proof of the leadership’s lack of a connection with their conservative base is clearly stated by Rep. Tom Cole of Oklahoma:

“Our problem isn’t leadership around here; it’s followership.  We have a group of people who, frankly, think they are always right and their leaders and the conference collectively are usually wrong.  It’s actually a fairly small group.”

It’s just a hunch, but I imagine that there is a considerably large group of Oklahoma conservatives that believe much differently than Mr. Cole.  My warning to him and others like him is to not take their conservative voters for granted.  We see the Left making bold moves in their “fundamental transformation” of America.  We voted in a new Republican majority to make a stand.

If Boehner, Cole, McCarthy, et al want to see some followership from the conservatives, then it’s time for the leadership to get off their collective asses and get to work.  Use the majority that the voters gave them, and quit acting like losers.  Persuade McConnell and the Senate GOP to use the Reid Rule nuclear option to move legislation forward.   It’s time.  It’s high time.

 

 

You just might be a “right wing extremist” Part 2

dhs_rightwing_extremistLast year, with a nod and a wink to Jeff Foxworthy, we compiled a list of characteristics of right wing extremists, as viewed by the skewed lens of the Obama regime.

 

The point of the post, as with most satire, was to expose the absurdity of the leftists in charge by using absurdity.   Who knew that these tongue-in-cheek references would become reality?  Still, we’re dealing with the Obamas.  And, what better way to transform a nation than by criminalizing the political opposition?

 

The Conservative Treehouse has the list of 72 types of Americans that the regime considers to be terrorists. And, just for the record, el nuko scored a positive hit on 22 of 72.  So, hands up, don’t shoot. IKR.

New NRA ad campaign strikes the RIGHT chords

The new ad campaign launched by the NRA is different than anything I’ve ever seen.  I was watching the news the other day and saw an ad, it stopped me in my tracks.  The words spoken by the narrator could have been my own.

It was almost like the first time I heard Rush Limbaugh on the radio, and I was pleasantly surprised that someone could so eloquently express the same thoughts that had been swirling in my mind for so long.

If you haven’t seen them yet, I hope you will.  Here are the two that I have seen so far:

“Service”

“Safety”

logo“It takes courage to be free — a special kind of backbone to reject the world that surrounds you, to sign your name where everyone can see it, to believe that there is always a right choice and an honest consequence.”

“That’s what it means to believe in America. It’s time to believe in the good guys again. We are the 5 million men and women of the National Rifle Association of America.  Join us today.”

Dittos, NRA!!

Still think the establishment GOP is your friend?

A Guest Post by Dick Bachert

I’ve posted this around the net a number of times and do so again inasmuch as THIS is a constantly recurring problem and some may not grasp how widespread it is. And now that the RNC has OPENLY declared war on the TEA Party, it should be clear to all why I have for a few decades cautioned my many friends to NOT SEND THE RNC A NICKLE.

frayedOver the years – when, to steal a line from Billy Joel, I wore a younger man’s clothes – I was involved with several pretty solid conservative candidates for Congress. One was a Democrat (Lawrence Patton McDonald) – because that was the only way he could win in that district. Those old-timers who know Larry’s record will tell you that he was a solid an anti-communist America Firster and more Republican than the Pubbies in nearby districts at the time. (His mother’s cousin was General George Patton from whom he got the middle name – and his incredible resolve and love of this country.) How ironic that he, like General Patton, was also assassinated by the communists they both despised. It was my honor to introduce Larry at his last public speech in the district before that ill-fated KAL007 flight!

Those other candidates ran as Republicans and each had to pass my rigid litmus test or I went looking for someone who did. For that reason, I hooked up with what the TRADITIONAL country club Pubbie establishment types believed were too radical for their refined tastes. I served as treasurer for several and in other capacities for more.

As those campaigns began to unfold and it became clear to the country clubbers that these guys 1) had a shot and 2) were pretty independent thinkers who would be hard to keep on the reservation once they got sworn in, the local Pubbies communicated that information to the Republican National HQ types who rather quickly sent in campaign “professionals” ostensibly to lock up the impending victory.

Instead, in nearly every case to which I was privy, these “professionals” proceeded to TORPEDO our guy’s campaign in subtle but effective ways.

From that experience I can tell you that the Pubbies at the HQ in D.C. would rather have a Democrat win a given district than have a pubbie up there who would embarrass them by refusing to follow the party line.

nacho friendIf YOU become involved in campaigns for solidly conservative, America and Constitution loving, hard-nosed, independent thinking candidates in 2014 and beyond – and I pray many of you do — please DO NOT trust any of those folks from GOP HQ in Washington. If they want to send you no-strings cash for your campaign, take it. If, however, they “suggest” sending in one of their “professionals,” tell them to fuggetaboutit.

They ARE WHO GOT US INTO THIS MESS AND THEY ARE NOT YOUR FRIENDS!!!!
