Republican's Invited Lobbyists to Their Retreat

Just heard on Greta Van Susteren that the Republicans are planning a retreat for this week-end.  House Republicans will hold their annual retreat at a waterside resort on Maryland’s Eastern Shore.

Although Republicans will deny what I’m about to say vehemently, deals behind closed doors not exactly kosher. The bottom line is they’re wining and dining with some high powered lobbyists from big corporations and various associations. The lobbyists just purchased themselves a free pass to wheel and deal behind closed doors with the Republican Party.   

I know what their song and dance will be about my comment – they’re going to say that the Republican Party doesn’t get any of the lobbyist’s money – it all goes to the Congressional Institute. Lobbyists at Your retreat????? 

Shame on all of you – here’s your lousy report card for the past five years which will show beyond a doubt that you haven’t been doing your job.

Starting back in 2009 Americans were forced into handing the Government 787 billion dollars for the sole purpose of jump starting our economy, creating jobs, helping those who are losing their homes and jobs due to the housing bubble.  That didn’t happen! 

For starters let’s discuss the $312 billion in tax breaks available through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act which are being claimed legitimate yet no one in Congress could get a handle on these tax breaks or verify the actual eligibility of the recipients. All were too busy playing politics and as usual taxpayers got gouged once again.

Where were the Republicans when the DOE kept handing our millions of our stimulus money for the “Green Energy” scams?  Reports verify that over 90% of our loans to the green scam went to Obama’s big bundlers or donors, Harry Reid and other high ranking Democrats.  Not a bleeping peep out of you!  You didn’t bother telling us about this scam until you were caught with your pants down and companies started going belly up.

Let’s revisit the 75 billion dollars that Obama said was set aside for mortgage relief – this money once again went to risky lenders who were in lawsuits up to their armpits. Everyone was too busy to oversee and monitor this relief fund. 

My daughter was a victim of the HARP program, which was a blooming nightmare with more holes in it then tea strainer!  All this program did was prolong the agony of foreclosure.  Not one of you bothered monitoring this program either – it was easy come easy go, taxpayers and homeowners took another financial hit due to your negligence.

Let’s talk about the Fast and Furious Gunrunner operation – Obama funded the program with our money, Holder & Napolitano choreographed and launched the program.  In April 2009, they toddled down to Cuernavaca Mexico City to discuss the Fast and Furious operation with Mexican officials. Holder and Napolitano both perjured themselves lying under oath feigning that they didn’t know about the operation. End of story!

The rest of the story about the gunrunner operation is this: OIG sent a letter to CIA, FBI, ATF, Homeland Security and Congress warning them that the gunrunner operation was flawed and dangerous. You can find this information on the DOJ website if you’re having a lapse of memory. 

Not one Republican raised their hand to notify Americans about the deadly operation, not until two of our brave border agents were killed and hundreds of innocent Mexican men, women and children were murdered. Once again you were AWOL – now years later Obama, Holder & Napolitano are walking our streets free as “jay birds.” 

The Benghazi murders are still unsolved after all of these months, yet you regularly get on National TV putting on your dog and pony show pointing fingers, naming names and no one is responsible.  If you’re afraid of Obama, Clinton, Panetta, Lamb, Carney and Rice – then kindly step down, the last thing we need is cowards in the Republican Party.

In closing the other scandals that you seem to avoid like a plague are the IRS, NSA and Obama care – all of these scandals have harmed Americans and been a horrendous cost to taxpayers. Yet, you opt to play politics and worry more about job security rather than fulfilling your oath to our Nation and all Americans.

The Old Republican establishment is a disgrace – you are self- serving back biting leeches. You turned on the tea parties and the new faces that entered the House and Senate in 2012.  For five years you’ve refused to be good stewards of our money. Originally I  thought the House was in charge of our money or is it no one is in charge of our money?

The Old Republican dogs are the gutless wonders that kicked Ted Cruz under the bus when he wanted to repeal Obamacare.  Obamacare is the most deadly dangerous law that Obama has jammed thru - Republicans better believe if it isn’t repealed and Obama gets his way he will control our beautiful America.

Alinsky was right, if you control the healthcare, you control the people.  The other thing the Republicans have ignored is the extreme increase in the poverty level – Obama is truly the food stamp President and he’s damned proud of it. 

Alinsky said increase the poverty level as high as possible, poor people are easier to control and will not fight back of you are providing everything for them to live.

So enjoy your retreat, but understand that you have failed in your promises to Americans and you’ve fractured, sliced and diced what was once a political party that Americans were proud of and embraced.   Not much to be proud of now, is there?

As Always,

Little Tboca

Obumer, Boehner, Holder...all the same, liars, traitors and for the most part, liberal commies...fire em all.

Ed, since you don't like to be challenged, I will try anyway.  Can you give me a name of a single lobbist?

Comment by Edward L.Ruff on February 4, 2014 at 7:50pm

If it isn't business as usual why would one invite lobbyists . Why are we being sold a bill of goods by our elected Representatives. Any candidate the Tea Party puts forward I will support , We must remove most of our Reps. and start anew. We will be extremely fortunate to survive the criminals.

Heavenly Father, we come before you today to ask your forgiveness and to seek your direction and guidance. We know Your Word says, 'Woe to those who call evil good,' but that is exactly what we have done.
We have lost our spiritual equilibrium and reversed our values.
We have exploited the poor and called it the lottery.
We have rewarded laziness and called it welfare.
We have killed our unborn and called it choice.
We have shot abortionists and called it justifiable...
We have neglected to discipline our children and called it building self esteem.
We have abused power and called it politics.
We have coveted our neighbor's possessions and called it ambition.
We have polluted the air with profanity and pornography and called it freedom of expression.
We have ridiculed the time-honored values of our forefathers and called it enlightenment.
Search us, Oh God, and know our hearts today; cleanse us from sin and Set us free. Amen!'

Unknowen, but GOD Bless!

Written by Dr. Milton R. Wolf, a cousin to obama

“They’ll turn us all into beggars ‘cause they’re easier to please.” So goes a Rainmakers song. Beggars also are easier to control. Just ask the drug dealer. It is not compassion that motivates him to give away the first hits of heroin for free; it is the promise of control.

President Obama wants to give you free stuff.
Lots and lots of free stuff. At least, he’d like you to believe it’s free. Free
health care. Free welfare checks. Free food stamps. But as the saying goes, free stuff or freedom: Choose one.

As any teenager knows, you don’t escape mom and dad’s rules until you pay your own bills. Some say our overbearing government is similarly paternalistic, which is insulting enough but simply untrue. Good parents prepare their children for independence, whereas Mr. Obama wants to
increase Americans’ dependence on his government.

Consider the pernicious nature of Mr. Obama’s deeply rooted hostility toward individual achievement: “If you’ve got a business, you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.” A rationale for confiscatory taxes? Certainly, but it’s so much worse. Mr. Obama’s notion that government, rather than people, creates prosperity is not only an insult to every hardworking American, it is the subversion of the individual. If your success is the result of someone else, then you are nothing more than an expendable cog in the wheel. On a fundamental level, you no longer bring value to society other than taking up the space government provides you. So long as your rulers build roads and public schools, Mr. Obama claimed, you could be replaced. As antithetical as this is to the American ideal — and to common sense — it gets worse. Much worse. Mr. Obama is actively attempting to sabotage the middle class by turning it into a group of beggars.

What exactly is the middle class?
Classes cannot be defined by some arbitrary income number, as politicians like Mr. Obama and his magic $250,000 would have you believe. What of the billionaire who opts to take no income for a year or
the low-income family that realizes a one-time windfall by selling a farm?
Neither suddenly changes class.
Instead, class structure is best defined functionally. Here’s how: The middle class consists of those who can take care of themselves if they keep working. Those in the upper class may choose to work but in reality don’t need to do so. Those in the lower class, for a host of different reasons, cannot take care of themselves.
Mr. Obama is strategically targeting the middle class for elimination by forcing its dependence on government and, one by one, squeezing Americans down into the lower class. Consider Obamacare. Despite his false promises, since President Obama has taken office, health insurance premiums have increased by more than $2,300 per family per year. But not to worry, Mr. Obama wants to give you free stuff! Obamacare provides “assistance” — in reality, welfare — to families earning up to $88,500 a year. Let that sink in. In Mr.Obama’s worldview, even families earning twice the nation’s median income should receive welfare.

Consider Mr. Obama’s new welfare rules. In 1996, President Clinton and a Republican Congress implemented welfare-to-work requirements. It worked astonishingly well. Welfare caseloads dropped 70 percent. The American dream was restored for nearly 9 million Americans who worked their way out of poverty. Mr. Obama, however, prefers dependency and recently gutted the work requirements. More free stuff!

The rise of the Obama welfare state is unmistakable. More than 100 million Americans are receiving some form of federal welfare: an astonishing 1 in 3 Americans. An unprecedented 1 in 6 Americans — 45 million — are on food stamps. A staggering 23 million are unemployed. This is a train with too many cabooses and not enough engines but that’s exactly what the food stamp president wants.

I love Greta...and I am glad she called our attention to the retreat.  Here are some facts:

House Republicans will hear from legendary college football coach Lou Holtz, GOP message maven Frank Luntz, conservative journalists and pollsters and education experts at their annual retreat in Maryland this week.

Unfortunately, I cannot cut and paste everything from the browser.  Please review it.

“This retreat will be unlike any other as we hear from innovative speakers who will challenge our Conference to think differently about how to help empower people not the government,” said Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-Wash.), the chair of the House Republican Conference. “Plus, we have more time than ever scheduled for member-driving conversations about the bold solutions we want to advance this year to grow the economy, create jobs, and help people get ahead.

There are political cronies but not a mention of outsiders other than a few and no lobbyist.

Now, if any of you can provide us with some names of lobbyist, we have to take this report at its word as to what is on the agenda.

A Country Founded by Geniuses but Run by Idiots!

If you can get arrested for hunting or fishing without a license, but 
not for entering and remaining in the country illegally — you might 
live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

If you have to get your parents’ permission to go on a field trip or 
to take an aspirin in school, but not to get an abortion — you might 
live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

If you MUST show your identification to board an airplane, cash a 
check, buy liquor, or check out a library book and rent a video, but not 
to vote for who runs the government — you might live in a nation that 
was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

If the government wants to prevent stable, law-abiding citizens from 
owning gun magazines that hold more than ten rounds, but gives twenty 
F-16 fighter jets to the crazy new leaders in Egypt — you might live in a 
nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

If, in the nation’s largest city, you can buy two 16-ounce sodas, but 
not one 24-ounce soda, because 24-ounces of a sugary drink might make 
you fat — you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is 
run by idiots.

If an 80-year-old woman or a three-year-old girl who is confined to a 
wheelchair can be strip-searched by the TSA at the airport, but a woman 
in a burka or a hijab is only subject to having her neck and head 
searched — you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but 
is run by idiots.

If your government believes that the best way to eradicate trillions 
of dollars of debt is to spend trillions more — you might live in a 
nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

If a seven-year-old boy can be thrown out of school for saying his 
teacher is “cute,” but hosting a sexual exploration or diversity class 
in grade school is perfectly acceptable — you might live in a nation 
that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

If hard work and success are met with higher taxes and more 
government regulation and intrusion, while not working is rewarded with 
Food Stamps, WIC checks, Medicaid benefits, subsidized housing, and free 
cell phones — you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses 
but is run by idiots.

If the government’s plan for getting people back to work is to 
provide incentives for not working, by granting 99 weeks of unemployment 
checks, without any requirement to prove that gainful employment was 
diligently sought, but couldn’t be found — you might live in a nation 
that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

If you pay your mortgage faithfully, denying yourself the newest 
big-screen TV, while your neighbor buys iPhones, time shares, a 
wall-sized do-it-all plasma screen TV and new cars, and the government 
forgives his debt when he defaults on his mortgage — you might live in a
nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

If being stripped of your Constitutional right to defend yourself 
makes you more “safe” according to the government — you might live in a 
nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

If the media panders to your openly socialist leader while the IRS targets groups with dissenting views— you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

If your government 'cracks down' on legal gun sales to law abiding citizens while secretly supplying illegal guns to Mexican drug cartels— you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

If your local government (Chicago) outlawed gun ownership for 'the safety of its citizens' and now boasts the worst murder rate in the country — you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

What a country!

How about we give God a reason to continue blessing America?

The Progressives are in both parties. None of them believe in the Constitution or in what makes our country great. The few who do are greatly out numbered. We have to put down our feet and take our country back. Nothing else will do.

Comment by Bob Russell on January 30, 2014 at 10:20am

This is excellent and right on the button. republikrats are the enemy as much as the demonkrats.

Comment by Paul Norwood on January 30, 2014 at 8:39am

Let be known that if your not for the Constitution and Bill of Rights and have shown it over some long time you will be voted out of government. We the People will elect the people who will start this country back on the right track to greatness again.

ALERT ALERT

‘Watch: Female HS Student Says She ‘Felt Violated’ After Seeing Trans Student’s Penis In Locker Room

“I could tell that he was wearing women’s underwear and what was underneath it”

 A Pennsylvania student attending Honesdale High School has filed a complaint with the United States Department of Education Office of Civil Rights after her school administrators allowed a trans woman, a biological male who feels he is a woman, to dress and undress in the female locker room.

The student said she felt violated and scared when she looked across the aisle in the locker room to discover a member of the opposite sex in his underwear. In a video released by her legal team, she says it was obvious he was biologically male, as she “could tell that he was wearing women’s underwear and what was underneath it.”

“It was the first period, and I had gym class,” said the student, “And I walked in with all my friends, and while I was putting on my pants, I heard a man’s voice, so I turned around, and he’s standing there on the opposite aisle looking at me.”

“I glanced down and I could tell that he was wearing women’s underwear, and what was beneath it.”

She added that having a man apparently gawking at her while in various stages of undress made her feel unsafe.

“When I knew that a man was looking at me, I felt very violated, and very scared,” she said. “Especially looking at me while I am getting dressed.”

Her attorney said that this should be considered a form of sexual harassment in the eyes of the law.

“Opening up restrooms and locker room facilities to members of the opposite sex is sexual harassment,” said Andrea Shaw, the high school student’s attorney, “And like many forms of sexual harassment the girls in this school have little power over their situation.”

The attorney also notes that the school’s only attempt to remedy the situation was to allow the female high school student to wait to change until the biologically male student was finished, making her chronically late to gym class.

According to local media, the school district’s superintendent claims he is not able to comment on the case, but stated that the school is following the letter of the law. The Pennsylvania Supreme Court is expected to take up the case, otherwise biologically male students will continue to be allowed to dress and undress with biologically females.
