How the Tea Party Will Lose The 2014 Election

How the Tea Party Will Lose The 2014 Election

 

 

 

Yes, I do believe that conservatives will wake up in November 2014 to find that they have lost the senate and maybe the house; though I will admit we just might retain the house.  Maybe.

All because there really is no Tea Party.  There are the Tea Parties, plural and they don’t talk to each other.  They each have their own agenda.  They don’t even agree on their basic tenets.  There is the “Tea Party Patriots” with a web site here that states their mission as being simply …to restore America's founding principles of Fiscal Responsibility, Constitutionally Limited Government and Free Markets.

Then there is the Tea Party Command Center with a web site here with 15 ‘basic tenets’.

And of course the Tea Party express with six points in their mission statement.  Their web site is here.

On each page if you want to see their mission statements for yourself just click on the ‘about’ link at the top of their home pages.

There are others but I think you get the point.  Each of these has their own agenda and each goes after their own political ogres.  And I am sure each will have their own favorite candidates to endorse.  There is no focus within this hodgepodge of political theologies.  They can’t even focus enough to get very detrimental Presidential appointees disapproved!  Thomas Perez as Secretary of Labor???  WOW.  If he has his way, forced unionism will be a federal law that will supposedly override any and all state laws, the tenth amendment not-with-standing.  How about Obama’s socialist bed mate Kathleen Sebelius as Secretary of Health and Human Services overseeing the dreaded Obamacare. 

Ok.  OK.  I’ll get back to the point.

With this much diversity among the so called Tea Parties, they accomplish nothing.  The speaker of the house, a republican in name only (RINO) is touting the immigration reform acts as they come down from his new bosses in the senate.  Who would have thought that a Speaker would go on national TV and call himself a “facilitator”.  Gee I thought he was supposed to be the Leader of the majority party.  I guess with the mind set of our esteemed politicians that just ain’t true anymore.  He has other leadership issues and broken promises, but I said I would try to get back to the point of this blog.

The next point about the fractious Tea Parties is the local organizations.  They, for the most part, are far from local in their focus.  They want to be on the main stage so they go after national issues.  The Tea Party in my own county even refuses to endorse candidates for public offices claiming that they are ‘educational and therefore can’t do that.  I have some news for them.  There are basically only two entities that can’t endorse political candidates.  Any registered religious group due to the separation of church and state and any organization that receives the bulk of their funding from the tax payers such as PUBLIC schools.  Private non religious educational organizations that don’t receive funding from the tax payers are completely free to do so.  The local groups really need to focus on getting local issues made into laws.  Want to take back the senate?  Get behind a good conservative candidate and PUSH!  Want to stop the amnesty?  Deluge your own states senators and representatives with faxes, phone calls and letters telling them to represent their constituents.  Now there’s a revolutionary idea.  An elected representative representing.   I would like to start a new Tea Party in my county.  One dedicated to the two items of interest to our population.  Political education of the issues of local interest and the backing of conservative candidates.  We might call it the Local Tea Party, or some such.

It is up to us, the people that provide the Tea Party leaders with their incomes to make our individual voices heard and demand and accounting.  Why can’t they sit down with the leaders of all of the national Tea Parties and work out a concerted effort on one or two issues and a bunch of national conservative candidates then FOCUS or lose yet another election and perhaps an entire nation.  Let’s face it folks, WE THE PEOPLE pay these people too and they should reflect our needs not their own.

Thank you fo the kind words, Terri.  They mean a lot coming from you.

Perhaps the word perception was ill advised. I do recognize that all 501(c)(3) organizations are strictly banned from political endorsements.

Terri; there is one more point I would like to make.  I am afraid that I must disagree, respectfully, with your point on not supporting a candidate. Your position assumes that people will accept or even want to be educated.  In this world there are a massive amount of lazy and apathetic people that would rather have someone they like or respect tell them what choices to make at the poles.  That way they can go back to their computer games and TV with the unearned but very real feeling that they have done a good thing.  They did vote.

Thanks for the comments Terri.  And yes, I should have made that clearer.  The ban does include the non profits (501 (c)(3) since they don't have the taxes therefore are perceived as having government funding.   And I guess, in a way, that is true.

CRIME!! -> ICE Deports Quarter Of A Million Illegal Aliens, 6K Gang Members In 2018

The Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency in Fiscal Year 2018 deported more than 256,000 illegal aliens out of the United States, including about 6,000 suspected or known gang members.

Between September 2017 and October 2018, ICE agents deported 95,360 illegal aliens living throughout the interior of the U.S. and 160,725 illegal aliens who were caught by Border Patrol crossing into the country.

Most significant are the number of deportations ICE agents conducted for the more than 95,000 illegal aliens who were living throughout the interior of the country. There are anywhere from 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living across the U.S. at any given time, straining the capacity of ICE.

This year, though, ICE increased deportations of illegal aliens living in the U.S. by more than 45 percent since President Obama’s last year in office, when only about 65,000 illegal aliens living in the U.S. were deported.

The number of ICE deportations of convicted criminal illegal aliens and those with pending criminal charges has increased about 11.5 percent since Fiscal Year 2016, with more than 168,000 convicted criminal and suspected criminal illegal aliens being deported out of the U.S. this year.

In a tremendous increase, ICE hiked the number of illegal alien gang members deported by more than 185 percent compared to Fiscal Year 2016. This year, nearly 6,000 illegal aliens who are known or suspected gang members were deported out of the U.S. by ICE. Compare that to the only about 2,000 illegal alien gang members were deported in Obama’s last year in office.

Likewise, ICE deported a steady level of suspected or known illegal alien terrorists, totaling about 42 deportations for Fiscal Year 2018, a slight decrease from the 45 who were deported last year.

The ICE data also reveals the effectiveness of Trump’s visa sanctions on foreign countries refusing to take back their nationals. Throughout this year, the Trump administration placed visa restrictions on Cambodia, Cuba, Eritrea, Guinea, and Sierra Leone, as all those nations would not take their nationals back from the U.S.

This Fiscal Year 2018, after all five nations were hit with visa sanctions, the number of nationals deported to the foreign countries skyrocketed with a 279 percent increase in deportations from the U.S. to Cambodia, a 189 percent increase in deportations to Cuba, and a nearly 150 percent increase in deportations to Guinea.

As Breitbart News most recently reported, illegal immigration to the U.S. has continuously risen over the last three months to record levels. Last month, illegal immigration at the United States-Mexico border soared to levels that the country has not seen since Fiscal Year 2014, when more than 51,500 illegal aliens tried to cross the border in April 2015.

Meanwhile, illegal immigration costs American taxpayers about $116 billion every year, and the U.S.-born children of illegal aliens — granted birthright citizenship — cost taxpayers about $2.4 billion annually. There are about 300,000 “anchor babies,” the common name for U.S.-born child of illegal aliens, born every year which exceeds U.S. births in 48 states.
