If Congress Tells You It Will Save $$ ‘Over Ten Years’ They Are Lying

-By Warner Todd Huston

Over the last few decades, Congressmen have fallen into this scheme of telling us all that their budget deals will “save money over a ten-year period.” Don’t fall for this. It is an outright lie.

No, I am not being hyperbolic, here. The claim that any budget deal will save any money at all over five or ten-year time spans is simply an outright lie and every congressman knows it. When you hear a Congressman, Republican or Democrat, tell you this, they simply aren’t telling the truth.

In fact, it isn’t really even built into the system for one Congress to pass a budget that holds ten future Congresses to its strictures. This is why the Constitution insists that a new budget be passed every year. One Congress can only budget for itself, not any future Congresses.

We have a perfect example of this with the very budget in the news today, the Ryan/Murray budget.

In 2011 Congress agreed to a budget scheme that contained discretionary spending limits. As Sean Davis recently reported, these limits were agreed to by over 70 percent of House Republicans and signed into law by President Obama.

But, wait. Now Ryan/Murray comes along and dispenses with all those limits and hikes spending without any mind at all to the “law” enacted in 2011.

How did this happen? Because any congressional budget agreement made in 2011 has no permanent restrictions on a Congress in 20123.

GOP House Speaker John Boehner Has Proclaimed Himself an Enemy to the Tea Party

-By Warner Todd Huston

Earlier this week, House Speaker John Boehner, the nominal Republican from Ohio, threw down the gauntlet and announced that he is working to defeat anything conservatives and tea party groups want to get done in Washington and the group Tea Party Patriots is ready to accept that challenge.

Leading the establishment charge to continue the growth of big government and defeat conservatism, Boehner attacked those looking to lower taxes, to shrink the size of government, and to defeat the liberal left. The group Tea Party Patriots slammed Boenher saying he “declared war on the Tea Party” with his “smug and pretentious rant.”

Boeher absurdly said that it is the conservative groups and tea partiers working to promulgate conservative principles who are lying to the people and “using using our members and … the American people for their own goals.”

Sarah Palin for Senate? ‘Read My Lipstick: No New Taxes’

December 14, 2013 | Filed Under Budget, Business, Conservatives, Constitution, GOP, Government Corruption, Republicans, Sarah Palin, Senate, Taxes, Tea Party, Warner Todd Huston | Comments Off

-By Warner Todd Huston

Sarah Palin is quite unhappy with Rep, Paul Ryan’s “white flag” budget and reminds the Republican Party that they should be running on the slogan “read my lipstick: no new taxes!”

In a piece posted at Breitbart, Palin excoriates Ryan for his terrible budget bill and points out that no Republican wins office by raising taxes.

“No one can argue with the fact that Paul Ryan’s compromise budget bill raises taxes and increases spending. Show me one Republican who got elected on that platform,” Palin writes.

“We sent these politicians to Congress in an historic landslide election in 2010 with a mandate to stop the runaway spending train bankrupting our nation, not to wave to it from the station or – heaven forbid – increase its speed. And yet, here we are still pretending that there are no real world consequences to running up near trillion dollar deficits year after year with no end in sight.”

Georgia’s Establishment Republicans Want to Waste Millions on This, Local Tea Partiers in Strong Opposition

Local Tea Partiers Oppose This Giant, Secret Waste of Tax Dollars.

The GOP establishment in Cobb County, Georgia wants to spend upwards to $600 million in local tax dollars to help the Atlanta Braves move north of downtown Atlanta. They say it will bring new development and increased economic activity to the area. Tea Partiers, however, say this is a waste of tax dollars and it isn’t the government’s job to join in capitalist projects.

The establishment GOP says their argument is simple. As detailed by the AP, Cobb County Commission Chairman Tim Lee and his supporters say that “almost $400 million in county bonds and immediate infrastructure improvements, with debt payments approaching $600 million over 30 years–will generate enough economic activity and, thus, tax revenue to justify the spending.”

Lee imagines that this huge outlay of tax money is a “home run” for his county. Local tea party leaders thoroughly disagree.

This is all “appalling hypocrisy” and “arrogance” on behalf of the county operatives, says Atlanta Tea Party Leader Debbie Dooley.

A Spate of Pro and Anti William Kelly News Making the Rounds

Apparently political gadflay William J. Kelly has become the subject of political intrigue this month with a wave of pro and anti Kelly info making its way to my email inbox. I have no clue why Kelly is suddenly a hot topic, but it is what it is.

OK, get ready to get into the weeds on all this as this entry is going to be a long one…

Let’s start out with the pro Kelly stuff.

So, I was sent an email with some info about donations to one of Kelly’s many campaigns and after that I began getting other emails apparently trying to brush aside any concerns over those donations.

Someone apparently on the pro-Kelly side was making sure I was sent an email with a link to a 2012 piece on a site with the odd name of the “Internet Troll Safety Center.”

That blog entry was a bit quixotic. On one hand it says that political operative Doug Ibendahl was “paid by Otto Engineer’s Jack Roeser to smear William Kelly, Kelly’s fiancé Laura Kelly, and Kelly’s deceased father, William F. Kelly.”

Former Secret Service Agent Says Age of Obama is More Dangerous Than Ever

Dan Bongino is a former Secret Service Agent form Maryland who has a warning for the country: we are in more danger now than ever thanks to the failed Obama administration.

Bongino is running for Congress in Maryland’s 6th District (Dan Bongino’s campaign website) and appeared on Glenn Beck’s TV show on December 5 to talk about his race and the state of the country when he warned that the nation is going down the wrong path.

One of Mr. Bongino’s guiding principals is to base all his ideas for governing on whether or not those ideas are constitutional in the first place. That is the sort of novel thinking we need in Congress, don’t you think?

But Bongino is sour on the growing police state in which we live and is ready to pare back the powers of the department of Homeland Security, the CIA and the NSA–or at least apply constitutional limits to their powers.

New Jersey’s Republican Governor Chris Christie slammed Obamacare as a “train wreck” in comments made at a Jersey radio station on November 25.

Christie appeared on New Jersey’s 101.5 FM for his November “Ask the Governor” segment. That’s when he slammed Obamacare and the President but good.

Christie was asked why he didn’t join in on the state side and create a state exchange for Obamacare in New Jersey.

“This is just an awful law that made no sense and that’s why I didn’t get into a state exchange. And no, I have absolutely no regrets. In fact, I’m really glad that the train wreck’s not mine, it’s his,” the Governor said of Obama’s signature healthcare law.

Supreme Court Will Hear Obamacare Forced Contraception/Anti-Religious Liberty Case

In a momentous decision, the U.S. Supreme Court has decided to review the Constitutionality of provisions in Obamacare that force religious institutions and companies owned by religious owners to fund contraception in their employee healthcare policies.


The Justices of the Supreme Court of the United States.

One of the cases against Obamacare was brought by the arts and crafts supply company Hobby lobby which is owned by the religious Green family. Their religious principals, the Greens say, forbid them from engaging in abortion or contraception but Obamacare forces them to pay for such things in their employee healthcare plans whether they want to or not.

This mandated coverage, the argument goes, is unconstitutional because it forces religious business owners and religions institutions to pay for things that go against their religious principals.

To explain his decision Hobby Lobby’s CEO wrote,

Obama, You’re No Abe Lincoln

This month, our country is remembering two famous Americans, Abraham Lincoln and John F. Kennedy. On November 19, 1863, Abraham Lincoln delivered his short (about 3 minutes) but inspiring speech at the dedication of the soldier’s cemetery in Gettysburg. November 22 marks the date when an assassin’s bullet ended the life of President Kennedy in Dallas, Texas exactly 50 years ago. Our current president has often sought to align or identify himself with either president at one time or another hoping that by association, some of their popularity might transfer to him. President Obama has characteristically had a way of inserting himself into every subject of historical note as the government’s historical website can attest to. The account of American’s remarkable achievements have been recently updated to reflect the current administration’s “contributions” to this country’s progress.

Though there have been many occasions where Obama has put on the Kennedy mantle, his keen interest appears to be the Lincoln one. In fact, he used the Lincoln bible for swearing in his oath of office at his two inaugurations. Here’s indisputable proof that greatness cannot be acquired by osmosis. He might have as well sworn in on a Marvel comic book because since he entered office he has deliberately and flagrantly circumvented the sacred oath to protect and preserve the Constitution.

A brief comparison of the two men and their respective visions for America however reveals how implausible it would be to interpose one for the other. This was glaringly apparent recently when Obama declined an invitation to speak at the Gettysburg ceremonies, explaining that he simply was too busy to attend. In other words, he had more important things to deal with (like repairing the DemolitionCare PR damage), then to pay homage to a man who in just a few eloquent and poetic words captured the essence of our Constitutional Republic and inspired the country to persevere. Lincoln managed to make it in the midst of conducting a enormous nationwide military campaign and running the government with just a very few aids, no massive security detail, no four speech writers and no teleprompter which had not been invented as yet.

Did GOP Minority Leader Mitch McConnell Say He Wanted to ‘Punch Tea Party Bullies in the Nose’?

For Breitbart, Matthew Boyle writes that a strategy call was recently sponsored by Crossroads America, the GOP PAC headed up by anti-conservative and establishment guru Karl Rove, and on the call tea party activists and conservatives came in for harsh criticism by no less then leader McConnell himself.

Boyle writes that a participant on the call contacted him and said that McConnell attacked Senators Mike Lee and Ted Cruz by name. But what McConnell said at the end of the call was the most adversarial statement.

Anti-Gun Penn. Mayor Ousted From Office by Pro-Gun Voters

Let this be a warning to all arrogant politicians who think they don’t have to listen to their constituents. An anti-gun mayor in Chambersburg, Pennsylvania was fired by pro-gun voters this month after he enraged hundreds of voters by joining New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s discredited anti-gun group, Mayors Against Gun Violence.

In the Nov. 5 election, voters in Chambersburg ousted incumbent mayor Democrat Pete Lagiovane in a region steeped in gun culture and hunting traditions.

Mayor-elect Darren Brown, a tea party Republican, was gratified but noted that he was a little worried about how close the election ended up being. “The results are a little closer than I thought they’d be,” Brown said after winning with 52 percent of the vote.

The NRA used its powerful voice in support of Brown, “The only pro-gun candidate in this race,” as the legislative arm of the NRA said in advertisements.

Senate Hearing on Future of Bitcoin: Legal Tender or Criminal Enterprise?

The U.S. Senate held a hearing on the Internet-based Bitcoin currency on Nov. 18 revealing a U.S. government that is struggling with crafting policy to govern how the virtual currency can be used in the United States.

The Senate Committee on Homeland Security & Government Affairs held a major hearing on Bitcoin and other virtual currencies called, “Beyond Silk Road: Potential Risks, Threats, and Promises of Virtual Currencies.” The Committee also has a video of the proceedings.

Bitcoin has gotten a black eye because criminals and drug dealers have used the currency in an effort to avoid law enforcement and earlier this year U.S. authorities shut down several websites that traded in Bitcoins over this use by criminals.

But recently the Chicago Federal Reserve Bank issued a “primer” on how Bitcoin works that raised the virtual currency’s stock in the world of finance.

Do We Have a Chance to Remake the GOP as a Conservative Party?

November 12, 2013 | Filed Under Anti-Americanism, Conservatives, Constitution, Democrats/Leftists, Education, Elections, GOP, Government, Liberals, Progressives, Republicans, Warner Todd Huston | Comments Off

-By Warner Todd Huston

There are a few facts about the current political climate that are 100 percent beyond question. One is that the GOP establishment hates Tea Partiers and conservatives far more than they hate Democrats. Secondly, if there is amnesty for illegals, the GOP will become a permanent minority party. So, if amnesty arrives perhaps we have the opportunity to eliminate moderate Republicans and remake the GOP as a truly conservative party for the first time in history?

So, the latter part of my first paragraph is an admission of sorts. The Republican Party has never been a truly conservative party. It really is the moderate, establishment’s party, not ours. Granted, when founded the GOP was actually the radical party. It was for the elimination of slavery, not the tolerance of it. There was little mincing words with the so-called “black Republican” Party. But its post Civil War incarnation is what it’s been for most of its history.

As it evolved after the North won the Civil War, the GOP became the party of big business. At the time that was essentially the “conservative” position to take, but the fact is one cannot use the words “conservative” and “liberal” to describe American politics until FDR began his assault on the business sector and George McGovern put the final anti-American nail in the Democrat Party’s coffin.

Even in 2010 Obama Admitted That Millions Would Lose Their Healthcare

On one hand Obama has spent four years lying outright to the American public telling them that they could keep their healthcare insurance and their doctors if they liked them. But now that the extent of his lie has become so obvious, we are looking back at past statements proving that on the other hand Obama knew all along that he was lying. Here is one from 2010 revealed by House GOP leader Eric Cantor’s office.

On February 25 of 2010 there was a big meeting between the leaders of the Republicans in the House of Representatives and President Obama. It was one of the very, very few times Obama bothered to reach out to the GOP to talk to them and listen to their points. But in this segment of the meeting we see Obama admitting that millions will lose their insurance.

Leader Cantor asks Obama about the 8 to 9 million that might lose their insurance (something we now know is assured, not just a “might”). Obama replied admitting that this was likely true. Of course, he then lied saying that his Obamacare policies would be better.

“The 8 to 9 million people that you refer to that might have to change their coverage–keep in mind out of the 300 million Americans that we’re talking about–would be folks who the CBO, Congressional Budget Office, estimates would find the deal in the exchange better,” Obama said to Cantor in 2010.

See, folks. He knew all along that his claim that everyone could keep their insurance–period–was a lie.

Ouch. At a recent town hall event held by Senator John McCain (Maverick, Arizona) one participant said to McCain’s face that the Senator should be “arrested and tried for treason” for supporting al Qaeda terrorists in Syria.

For those unaware, McCain was one of the biggest boosters of the Syrian rebels currently facing Syrian strongman Bashar al Assad who has been killing thousands of his own people in a civil war for some time, now. McCain felt the US should support the rebels facing Assad, but as it happens at least half the rebels facing Assad are members of al Qaeda, America’s biggest international foe, not to mention those responsible for the murder of 3,000 Americans on 9/11/01.

Arizona citizen Blaine Cooper called McCain a traitor for sending arms and money to support the Syrian rebels, many of whom are al Qaeda, our worst enemies.

AFP’s Restore Illinois Summit: Quotes and Governor Candidate Pitches

-By Warner Todd Huston

Today, November 2, I attended the first ever Americans for Prosperity Restore Illinois Summit–a gathering of conservatives and Republicans looking to bring a renaissance to the Land of Lincoln.

There were some great speeches given from such luminaries as conservative activist and Fox News contributor Michelle Malkin, Radio personality and Glenn Beck host Dana Loesch, Congressman Peter Roskam, former Congressman and conservative radio host Joe Walsh, and radio personality Dan Proft, some good panels were held and hundreds of great Illinois conservatives were in attendance.

I did not take video, but Ulysses Arn did. He’s uploading as I post this so later on check out Arn’s Blog for video.

In this post I’ll relay some good quotes from some of those speakers and offer the essential bullet points of the four GOP candidates for Illinois Governor. Now I did not see everyone, so this post will concern only those I was able to catch.

Sponsored by the Illinois chapter of Americans for Prosperity, some 400 tickets were sold for the event–pretty good for a deep blue state like Illinois. Also pretty good since the event was held in Chicago, that deep blue state’s bluest corner. (AFP Ill. Director David From left)

The morning started with an address form AFP chief Tim Phillips (which I missed because I was 45 minutes late to the event) and AFP State Director David From. Then came radio host and Townhall political editor Guy Benson. I can’t say much about his address since I walked in just as he was finishing up.

Walsh Takes ‘Em By Storm

Next came former Congressman Joe Walsh (right), now an evening radio personality for WIND radio in Chicago (http://walshfreedom.com/).

Walsh noted that he may never be able to run for office in Illinois again because of his dour assessment of both the Illinois GOP and the direction of the country. Whatever his future holds, Walsh had a few good quotes that I was able to jot down.

In one instance, Walsh noted that because of how our schools have failed us, “too many Americans are stupid, they are misinformed, they know more about Dancing w The Stars than they do of Thomas Jefferson.”

Rep. Cole On McCarthy, Creating New Tax Hikes, and Giving Obama Credit for ‘Reform’

In a recent interview, Representative Tom Cole (R, OK) tried to take the “reasonable” stance by claiming that President Obama deserves credit for “reform,” but wouldn’t go so far as to say the tea party was like McCarthyism. He also said he’s open to tax hikes.

In an interview with Bloomberg’s Al Hunt aired on October 26, Cole said that he thinks “both sides would like to deal with the sequester” and by “deal with” he means he’s open to raising taxes, though he uses the euphemism “raising revenue.”

Cole told Hunt that “we,” meaning the GOP, are “willing to put more revenue on the table” to settle the budget negotiations by the December 13 deadline.

The Congressman claims that the GOP is looking to raise taxes in a “pro-growth” way. Cole also says that he’d like to see a tax hike connected to “larger tax reform.”

When he was questioned on those Republicans that no matter what comes will vote no on new “revenue,” Cole ceded the point that many would.

Senator Ted Cruz (R, TX) has not backed off from his drive to destroy the President’s disastrous take over of our healthcare system with his Obamacare scheme and this weekend he was in Iowa bucking up the troops and urging a “grassroots army” to rise up and dismantle Obamacare.

Cruz was appearing before a crowd in Akron, Iowa on Friday, October 25 in three days of events that many think indicates he’s considering a run for President in 2016.

Cruz says he is only focused on his work in the Senate now, but if he does look to a run for the White House, Iowa is a traditional place to start to raise his profile.

Whatever his goals for the future, for today he is still beating the drum to defeat Obamacare and he made some excellent points about the hypocrisy of the left, the Democrats and the Old Media complex (but I thrice repeat myself) that attacked those that wanted to delay and defund Obamacare.

Politico Buttresses Liberal Republicans at the Expense of Conservatives

The Old Media establishment hates all Republicans, certainly, but they tolerate liberal Republicans because those sorts of Republicans don’t rock the boat and are quite happy taking the scraps from the Democrats’ table. So, the media always does its best to promote liberal Republicans and will use them as a foil to destroy conservatives–the latter of whom they truly despise. Politico recently had a perfect example of this Old Media strategy.

In a piece discussing how conservative Republicans in the House of Representatives are lagging with their donations to the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC), Politico had a perfect example of how the left frames the debate when they are pretending to “report” on what is going on with the GOP.

The story noted how many of the House conservatives most associated with tea party principals don’t seem to keen on giving some of the campaign war chests to the NRCC so that it can promote left of center Republicans–and who can blame them?

In a great example of agenda “journalism,” the left’s narrative was perfectly pushed in the third paragraph of the slanted piece by Politico’s Alex Isenstadt.

Here is that paragraph:

Liberal Media Hypocrisy, Uses ‘Racist’ to Attack Sen. Ted Cruz

If you want an example of the hypocrisy of the left-wing media, there can be no better example than the sudden, new love that Mother Jones magazine has for a Republican that ten years ago they called a disgusting, hatemongering, racist, throw back to the civil war. Why do they love him? Because he’ll attack Senator Ted Cruz.

When Mississippi Senator Trent Lott’s political career was going up in smoke in 2002, the left-wing media excoriated him as a disgusting, hatemongering racist. They hated the man. But now that the extremists in the left-wing media want someone to attack Senator Ted Cruz, suddenly Trent Lott is good enough to run to for a quote or two.

Trent Lott used to be the Republican majority leader in the U.S. Senate. Decades ago he was a Democrat operative in the strongly segregationist state of Mississippi. After years in the Democrat trenches, Lott switched to the Republican Party to run for national office eventually becoming the state’s powerful Senator.

But Trent Lott never left his Democrat Party principals behind when he jettisoned his party. He was always a left leaning Republican, one who agreed with a lot of Democrat ideas. But he made a fatal mistake in 2002. He praised famed segregationist Senator Strom Thurmond at a party.

In short order, Lott was forced to step down from GOP leadership over the controversy raised in the liberal press. Only a few years later he left elected office altogether. The media won. Trent Lott was eliminated.

It only took him five minutes, but economist Thomas Sowell, an African American, practically destroyed the left’s constant use of racism (today we call it the race card) as well as its reliance on the false theories of feminism.

Thomas Sowell is a free-market economist, social theorist, philosopher and author. In 1981, Sowell appeared on an episode of the TV show Firing Line, featuring renowned conservative William F. Buckley.

Dr. Sowell was questioned by Harriet Pilpel, a lawyer and feminist activist who asked him how he would bring about more equality in society for women and minorities. Citing the gender wage gap that was all the rage of leftists at that time, Pilpel asked Sowell how he might explain such pay discrepancies, and what the underlying causes might be. As you can see on the video above, in just under five minutes Professor Sowell totally deconstructed the equality myths that are still perpetuated in the media, academia and the halls of government to this very day.

Sowell just destroyed this woman’s whole world, didn’t he? Tell us in the comments section what you thought of this great video.

Ted Cruz is IT!

October 4, 2013 | Filed Under Gary Krasner, GOP, Republicans, Senate, Ted Cruz | Comments Off

-By Gary Krasner

David Gregory must have thought he would be another Tim Russert when he was preparing to tackle Ted Cruz this morning.

But after the Obama-worshipping Gregory completed the 25 min interview, you can see he felt like a complete failure.

He hit Cruz with every Democrat nonsense talking point, and Cruz aced every question.

This is rare. There has been no true conservative republican who understood the basics or ARGUMENT, let alone could craft an effective argument.

But Cruz clerked for Chief Justice Renquist. That is where you learn the basics of effective argument.

NBC-Obama worshipping Dummy Chris Mathews said following the interview that House republicans are not following “our system of government.”

The Constitution gives the House the power of the purse, PRECISELY in order to defund bad law or bad executive actions.

Politico Misleads With ‘Cruz Praises Obama on Iran’ Story

October 3, 2013 | Filed Under Anti-Americanism, Barack Obama, Congress, Democrats/Leftists, Ethics, GOP, Iran, Journalism, Liberals, Media, Media Bias, Politico, President, Progressives, Republicans, Security/Safety, Senate, Ted Cruz, Warner Todd Huston | Comments Off

-By Warner Todd Huston

A recent Politico story did double duty by misleading readers and attempting to make Texas Senator Ted Cruz look bad with a headline and first paragraph that simply aren’t really true.

The September 28 story was misleadingly headlined, “Ted Cruz praises President Obama on Iran,” leaving readers with the impression that Senator Cruz was happy with Obama’s Iran policy.

The first paragraph continued the subterfuge, but went even further to mislead.
