Republicant "House leadership", aka establishment GOPers and RINOs: discouraging, disappointing, and disgusting conservatives in America as each day passes. Useless fools who badly need to get it over with and switch parties.
Any of you that are considering going over to the other side better take note. By the time the 2016 Election process starts - O'gayboy will be running for this third term. That is exactly what he plans on. He's a conniving, musssssslimmmme - he will say and do anything to accomplish his goal of destroying America!!!!!!!!!! We need to kick some a$$ in the Republican party and get rid of the Rhinos - Term limits is the answer!!!
The bill passed in the House today 267-151 with only 14 Republicans voting no.
With all due respect ...., it's the so-called Conservatives this time causing the problem. There were only 30 patriot Republicans who signed the letter pledging to vote against funding the implementation of Obamacare. John Boehner and Eric Cantor got to the rest of them and they are not standing up for We The People by going along with the dishonesty of voting for the Rule to allow the CR Bill on the floor and then voting against the actual Bill itself. Trying to have it both ways. But this time they must pay. They must be challenged in their primaries. Get rid of them all!
Well, my congressman is Jeb Henserling. He's not on the list of thirty. My family and I are gonna blow his phone up today. In the town halls he's had around here and his phone conferences he's said all kinds of BS I guess. Its all BS. You basically vote for Obamacare. Your reelection is gonna be tough there buddy.
The Speaker's voice mail is full send e-mails!
Several folks mentioned Paul Ryan. I heard Glenn Beck talking with Matt Kibbe (from FreedomWorks) today, and Matt said something interesting...
He said something like: I know Paul Ryan personally. He's a good friend, and I know him to be very well-read on the origins of the Constitution and the views of the Founders. But for some reason he is just not... [I can't remember how Matt phrased it] ...sticking to those principles any more.
We're getting close to the point where Mark Levin will have to call out Ryan and Rubio the way he does Christie, unless those guys get with the program. And FAST.
Paul Ryan has always been an establishment yes man. Ryan's voting record proves positive that he is not an actual conservative.
In his defense, I can say that when he arrived in Congress, that was the game EVERYONE played. But back then we could afford to let them play it, even though it was always a stupid game.
Now we can no longer tolerate it. Not one second more. I hope he gets on board. I really do.
But if he refuses, I have no problem steamrolling him with all the other trash in Congress.
Once again our government shows how transparent it is. Quietly moving up a vote in order to sneak it pass the people is despicable behavior on the part of our representatives, whom allegedly work for us! More treasonous behavior from a fascist regime.
Why is Mark disappointed in Paul Ryan? Paul Ryan is and always has been an establishment yes-man and has a voting record which prove he's not conservative.
And yet Mark continues to be against a third party that will eventually make the RINOs insignificant.
Because he's not stupid. This isn't the 1800's. You can't get a new party on all fifty state ballots + Puerto Rico in enough time to have it all set up to be on all ballots, and organized in time to campaign well for 2016.
And we have a MASSIVELY CRITICAL 2014 election coming up that we MUST win, big.
But he's not totally against a third party in the long run. We need to begin laying the groundwork for it now, for sure. But we simply cannot afford to stop gang-tackling the Cotton Conservatives every chance we get.
The way the gopE is acting now, is there much chance to keep the house in 2014??
Everyone I know is FURIOUS with their actions. Furious!! I do not know of one person who will contribute a PENNY to the party.
The entire party is going to face a tough election in 2014 in my opinion. (For many different reasons -too many reasons!!)
The gopE "leadership" is destroying the party!
Like a chicken with its head cut off, the GOP will still have its heart pumping, in the form of contributions from wealthy people and corporations, a little while longer.
Regular people have had it.
I say Vote West. Forget what the Republicans do, and just vote for Allen West at every opportunity: straw polls (even where his name isn't on the ballot), primaries (even where his name isn't on the ballot), caucuses, and the General (write-in if necessary).
Face it, the major parties have rigged the electoral system in their favor against ANY third-party effort, via the ballot-access laws.
The most prudent path forward, is to infiltrate the GOP and marginalize the RINOs, by primarying them out and replacing them with principled conservatives.
Of course, that means harder work for us in the short term ... but we avoid the third-party roadblocks by doing so.
Homeland Security is planning for a collapse of our economy. Stock up on food, fuel, and ammo. If you have a vacation house in the mountains, be prepared to exit your main residence.
Military leaders welcome House GOP budget bill
FYI - AP is reporting that:
The GOP measure would fund day-to-day federal operations through September - and avert a potential government shutdown later this month.
The measure would leave in place automatic cuts of 5 percent to domestic agencies and 7.8 percent to the Pentagon ordered Friday by President Barack Obama after months of battling with Republicans over the budget.
The GOP funding measure is set to advance through the House as early as Wednesday in hopes of preventing a government shutdown when a six-month spending bill passed last September runs out March 27.
Top Senate Republican Mitch McConnell of Kentucky said that bipartisan talks were under way on changes that the Senate would make to the House measure. He said that the House GOP leadership doesn't expect the Senate to simply approve the House bill without changes.
"There seems to be no interest on either side in having a kind of confrontational government shutdown scenario," McConnell said.
The administration weighed in Tuesday with a statement criticizing the House GOP measure for failing to provide enough money to implement Obama's signature legislation to overhaul financial regulation [Dodd/Frank] and the U.S. health care system [Obamacare]. The statement, however, did not threaten a veto.
The White House said the measure "raises concerns about the government's ability to protect consumers [Dodd/Frank], avoid deep cuts in critical services that families depend on, and implement critical domestic priorities such as access to quality and affordable health care [Obamacare]."
(The insertions in square brackets are mine.)
I expect nothing less of the yellow bellied RINOs in the house well actually both houses. If they had the same HC as we peons have they would have defunded Obamacare. WE. DESPERETLY NEED TERM LIMITS and fr the Zombies who voted for Obama to wake up.
The only way people might wake up is if they are taxed and taxed getting people in the pocket might wake the zombies up.
Gotta say it. I'm with Mark on this one. Best all around solution is to shut the government down (just wish that they could make it permanent).
Mark should just rerun a rant from one of the half dozen republican continuing resolution cave-ins from the past 4 years, and save time. Deja vu all over again. It should be clear by now that the GOPe has been in favor of Obamacare all along, and as long as the rest of the party supports the GOPe, they're all accomplices in the ruin of our nation.
Are we all wearing a sign on our backs that reads "*%&@ me" or what? Because that's the way it feels every day when I read the news. Apparently we all swing both ways, too, since we're getting screwed by both the Democrats and the Republicans. We're equal-opportunity buttboys.
What can anyone do? They don't care about phone calls, etc. They get their money from big monied interest and not the grass roots. So, now what?
I love Levin and love this second segment. I could pick at the House initiating taxing and spending but I won't as it is irrelevant; but, spending by the Constitution is initiated by the Senate and the House then can fund the spending or not. And that is the point of the second Levin segment. The House can defund ObumaNocare anytime they want and they continue to fund ObumaNocare with CR's. Not only that but more significant to CR's verses an actual Senate budget, the House continues to fund another additional $876 Billion stimulus the Dems put into effect in 2009, via Congressional approved base line budgeting. Another CR will not only continue to fund ObumaNOcare but also increase that stimulus to $4.5Trillion in increased deficit spending since 2009. If the Republican Brand ever as much as pretended to be even leaning Conservative, that has been completely destroyed by this Republican controlled House.
Rush Limbaugh today quoted Obama telling someone on tv that "the only way to change things around Washington is from the outside." And, quite frankly, Obama is right about that. And if I remember correctly, Rush said much the same thing about this quote from Obama.
Lately Rush Limbaugh has been on a roll and brilliant with his "theorem" about how Obama manages to escape blame for the catastrophes Obama has been orchestrating because he's perceived, in the vernacular of Dennis Rodman and Rush Limbaugh, as not being responsible for what's going on in Washington even though he is. As Rush points out he's perceived as not governing anything but fighting everything that is going on as if he were on the outside, even though he is the ultimate insider.
Rush's theorem is almost completely nails how Obama gets away with causing the disaster to our nation that he and the Democrats are causing but Rush doesn't quite complete the circle. He almost does sometimes but then pulls back.
Obama and the Democrats can't do what they are doing without the collusion and complicity and treachery of the Republican Party leadership and their bankrollers, such as Karl Rove.
Witness the fact that only 30 House Republicans, including, I'm proud to say, one from Louisiana (and I'm disappointed there weren't more from my state) cosigned a letter to the House leadership urging that ObamaCare be defunded. I'm upset that one of my favorite congressmen, Michele Bachmann didn't sign it, but maybe the fact that her re-election was so close thanks to the fact that the GOP Big Whigs despise her, may have muted her voice. In fact I haven't heard much from her at all.
In the GOP Big Whig leadership and amongst the bankrollers of that leadership like Karl Rove, we in essence have a Fifth Column for the Democrats at work in Congress. Either the Democrats have brided these Big Whigs of the GOP or these Big Whigs actually support what the Democrats and Obama are doing to our nation because somehow they stand to gain profitably from these shenanigans which Mark Levin accurately calls a sell out by the GOP leadership in the House.
This GOP, under this leadership, bankrolled by the likes of Karl Rove, can never be removed from within as Mark Levin so often calls for. This party is a dead end for conservatism because it's leaders, the Big Whigs of the GOP, has betrayed everything it has ever stood for and every rank and file conservative it claims to represent. And it has done so for a long time because it has been bought and paid for by the "progressive" bankrollers of our nation through beneficial contracts or what have you for themselves and their cronies.
Maybe Mark Levin will actually see the handwriting on the wall for the GOP and translate his Levin surges into something even more useful - the creation of an alternative conservative party to fight both the Democrats and the spectre of the GOP who sell out at the drop of a hat. There are 30 House Republicans right now who might be willing to form the basis of such an new and alternative party. With the help of people like Levin and hopefully Rush it would be possible. And from the outside of the present two party structure, as Obama pointed out, such a third conservative alternative would quickly emerge as the dominant party on the political landscape of our nation and truly change things for the better.
We need to give up on any hope of changing the present GOP and bringing it back to the principles which got Ronald Reagan elected twice in massive victories. Else we are just wasting our time and efforts and money and going no where.

We're people without a party. I don't see how any sane person could vote Republican again. These people don't deserve to be in leadership positions. They've betrayed those who put them there. I know a lot of people stayed home in the 2012 election, I predict it will be much worse for the Pubs in 2014.
After Ochavez, Reid and Pelosi, John Boehner is the most destructive force in the Feral Government, and bears a full measure of responsibility for the conversion of the greatest free nation on the planet into just another socialist banana republic.
He is despicable.
Guess you could say I'm not a fan.
Tyranny at work. Mark came close to Gunny tonight. He said grow a spine, instead of: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g2M4ilVaAmI
Can someone please tell me how the Republicans aren't like the Democrats?
Why is it that our freedom and all our chances to stop Obama and the crap he and his cronies are doing keeps slipping away from us? Why aren't the Republicans stopping all of this? Defunding this? Fighting?
I hate betrayel!!! I hate it! The Republican leadership are criminals right now. They are so wrong... so screwed up. When will this stop? Those liars/wimps are just as bad as the damned Democrats.
And America keeps sliding downhill with these morons pulling us down.
Just sent an email to my Republican rep in PA - will follow up with phone. Just found on his site that he proudly supported the Senate bill for Violence Against Women's Act.
I feel like most of us here....BETRAYED!
I feel the same way you do, and the frustration is getting to a point where I don't even want to read the news, because you know that every news you will read is bad, and the feeling of being powerless is what makes it worse. I think we are losing this republic, and that our two party system only makes it worst.
I feel EXACTLY like you do.
I'm not sure the fat lady is singing yet... but we can definitely feel America slipping away. I'm getting tired of the manufactured calamity and all the bed news nonsense.
More seemingly answerless questions: Why isn't Obama impeached yet? Why aren't Republicans defunding him and his insanity in the House? What are they doing? Why are they doing it - or better yet, why AREN'T they doing anything?
Sober_Thinking, the Republican leadership is from all Blue States and one Deep Purple State (Virginia)going Blue! This also explains why we can never make any gains as long as The Karl Rove brigade is there. In many ways they are worse than the democrats becasue at least the democrat voters know that they are getting liberal/communist!
Well stated. Call and fax the leadership and tell them they are betraying us.
Thank you for this... I just made the calls.
These two knuckleheads betrayed Georgia more than once already... I hope they grow up and do the right thing for once.
I'm so sick of voting for these people and having them fail to follow through on their high promises and fake principles. They're lemmings... and Boehner is the pied piper (just like Obama), leading them over the cliff.
Man, these people are either selfish, morons, or crooks - or all of the above. This is infuriating!
If the GOP leadership rams thru the CR without a majority of the majority, then these 30 Reps need to change the letter after their names from "R" to "I" and form an independent caucus.
BTW - why is Michele Bachmann's name not on this letter?
When Michele Bachmann cast the deciding vote for Boehner as speaker, that was symbolic of her having given up the fight. She's now on board with the rinos.
I'm speaking from observation, but yes, her recent votes and inaction has suggested that. It was a bad sign back in December, during Boehner's 'Plan B' tax increase push, that Bachmann didn't oppose it, but was listed as one of those representatives who was 'on the fence' about it. http://www.redstate.com/2012/12/20/urgent-last-few-hours-to-stop-the-boehner-tax-hike/
Just noticed that myself. I even checked the article posted on Big Gov. to see if her name was there. NADA! This is very disturbing!
I agree I have been defended my congresswomen before but now I can't. She has been shutup by the machine. She bailed on the boeher vote also. I have emailed her.
We should all keep this in mind as the RNC continues to call for money. Here's a simple response: "I don't give money to the party that voted to fund ObamaCare"
That's exactly what I do everytime they send me something asking for money or send me a survey .I write them back and tell them why I'm NOT sending money AND why I'm NOT registered republican.I will send money individually to those that prove they have a spine by their votes!
And I think these RINOs need to be called out during election time. I notice that the Republican leadership from Blue States are absent; Boehner (Ohio) where the Governor implemented Obama care, Cantor (Virginia Deep PurpleState) where the Governor is considering implementing Obamacare, McCarthy (California Democrat State), McRogers (Washington Democrat State)! None of these RINOs in leadership positions will ever be interested in cutting Obamacare so we need to find a way to remove these people and until then nothing will go right for Conservatives and as a consequence, the Country. I think it is a shame that no one has recognized that this leadership will be the destruction of the Republican Party.
