Pete Sessions and the GOP Obamacare Cave

Posted February 15, 2013

It's hard to escape the conclusion that the GOP now has an active strategy to crush the grassroots conservative movement. It seems they're prepared to sustain heavy electoral losses (which they will no doubt reap if they don't shift strategy soon) in the short term for a hoped consolidation of establishment power long-term. Witness the embrace of Obamacare's Medicaid expansion ruse by Republican governors John Kasich (OH), Jan Brewer (AZ), Brian Sandoval (NV), Susana Martinez (NM), and Jack Dalrymple (North Dakota).

It's a surrender that's so crazy it kills the damn fox. The states, after all, were supposed to be the last line of defense against universal Obamacare bedlam. Said Texas Congressman and Chairman of the House Rules Committee Pete Sessions during a townhall meeting with around 50 constituents:

What we're trying to do is let [Obama] be a failure. … Otherwise it's "Republicans stopped us from achieving what you wanted." We do not want to stop it. And I think these governors are probably pretty smart.

The crowd wasn't buying the argument.


Olympic Arms to Cuomo: Repeal Ban and Apologize or No Business with NY

Posted February 15, 2013

Olympic Arms penned this message to Gov. Cuomo:
Due to the passing of this legislation, Olympic Arms would like to announce that the State of New York, and any Law Enforcement Departments, Law Enforcement Officers, First Responders Within the State of New York, or any New York State government entity or employee of such an entity, will no longer be served as customers.
In short, Olympic Arms will no longer be doing business with the State of New York or any governmental entity or employee of such governmental entity within the State of New York...until this legislation is repealed, and an apology made to the good people of the State of New York and the American people.


Obama Bemoans Hagel Delay: 'I Need a Secretary of Defense'

Posted February 15, 2013

On Wednesday evening at an online “fireside hangout” at Google+, President Obama discussed his feelings regarding the Republican filibuster of anti-Israel Secretary of Defense nominee and former Senator Chuck Hagel. “What seems to be happening, and this has been growing over time, is the Republican minority in the Senate seems to think that the rule now is that you need to have 60 votes for everything,” Obama blustered, ignoring the fact that cloture has been a legislative issue for centuries. “Well, that’s not the rule.”


Five State of the Union Bullet Points You Need to Know

Posted February 15, 2013

Since President Obama's State of the Union Address Tuesday night, there have been a lot of articles dissecting his remarks and picking his proposals apart. As you might suspect, the vast majority have been politically charged by one side of the aisle or the other.

As Chief Investment Strategist for Money Map Press, I can't afford the luxury of taking sides. It's my job to help the hundreds of thousands of investors who are part of our family with their money...politics aside.

If you're with me, then I've got five bullet points - key takeaways really - from the president's speech that can help you grow your money this year and for the remainder of President Obama's second term.


Parents Complain About School Ad Excluding Whites From Tutoring Program

Posted February 15, 2013

AURORA, Colo. (CBS4) – A school principal said no white children were allowed at an after-school tutoring program, and now some parents call it discrimination.

The principal at Mission Viejo Elementary in Aurora sent a letter telling parents the program is only for students of color. Parents CBS4 talked with said they were shocked to see, in this day and age, what they consider to be segregation.

“I was infuriated. I didn’t understand why they would include or exclude certain groups,” said parent Nicole Cox, who is white.

Boxer Introduces Carbon Tax Bill Three Months After WH Promised 'We Would Never Propose' One

Posted February 15, 2013

Today, Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) introduced a bill to levy a carbon tax. But, back on Nov. 15 of last year, Pres. Obama's press secretary promised the administration would "never" do so.

According to Reuters, the new tax law "would set a $20 tax for each ton of carbon dioxide equivalent a polluter would emit beyond a set limit, which would rise 5.6 percent annually over a 10-year period."

Last November, however, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney told reporters that would never happen:


A Tea Party Declaration of Independence

A Tea Party Declaration of Independence

Posted January 14, 2013

~ by Lee Cary

The Tea Party will not be perceived as, nor in reality become, a thoroughly authentic movement until it declares its independence from the Republican Party.  And then demonstrates it.

Three-four million Republicans didn’t visit their assigned polling place November.  And, as the autopsy of the Romney campaign winds down, all explanations for Romney’s defeat must face this fact:

Millions of Republican voters didn’t deem his candidacy worthy of their vote.

Why?

The GOP Waterloo

Posted February 15, 2013

Several weeks ago, Congress voted to suspend the debt ceiling for 4 additional months in exchange for no spending cuts.  Many grassroots conservatives were surprised and dismayed that most conservative members of Congress went along with the plan.  The reason those conservatives agreed to fall on their sword is because leadership guaranteed them two things in exchange for their support.  1) They would stand strong on the sequester and 2) they would pass a budget for FY 2014 that balances in 10 years.

If GOP leaders are serious about keeping their promise, they must reject plans by John McCain and Lindsey Graham to offer any replacement to the sequester. That will only play into Obama’s hands and obviate any leverage we might gain from standing firm.  We must also quash any effort to tinker with the sequester in the continuing resolution.  As it stands now, the sequester will take effect on March 1.  That is free for us.  We get that by simply doing nothing.  Why use the CR to get something that we already own?  The CR, which is set to expire on March 27 must be about fighting Obamacare.

There is no doubt that John Boehner and Paul Ryan will push through a 10-year balanced budget for FY 2014.  But it is meaningless if they fail to finally make good on their promise to defund Obamacare.  It’s time for us to confront the reality that there is no entitlement reform without quashing Obamacare.  There will be no balanced budget as long as Obamacare is still on the books.  If you are one who feels that Obamacare is here to stay as a result of the elections, then stop talking about entitlement reform and balanced budgets.  None of that will happen once the Obamacare ship sets sail next year.

Last year, 127 members of the House signed a letter pledging to oppose any appropriation bill that contains funding for Obamacare.  105 of those members are still in the House (download here).  The full copy of the letter can be viewed here.  After much delay, the March 27 CR is the last opportunity to fulfill that promise.


Obama's Broken Record (SOTU 2013 Edition)

Did You Hear What I Heard?

Posted February 15, 2013

No, I'm not talking about a Christmas carol. I refer to the themes that ran repeatedly throughout President Obama's "State of the Union" speech Tuesday evening. Instead of delving into the details of his remarks, I want to look at the philosophical threads that were woven throughout the text of his comments.

First, the annual nature of this ritual is not a constitutional requirement. Article II, Section 3 of the Constitution simply states that the President "shall from time to time give to the Congress Information of the State of the Union, and recommend to their Consideration such Measures as he shall judge necessary and expedient." Notice that the requirement is only that this be done "from time to time.” Yet even though the Constitution does not specify an annual address, the tradition of it being such goes back to the presidency of George Washington.


New Texas Senator Ted Cruz blazing a trail in Washington

February 14, 2013

(Reuters) - For new U.S. senators, the drill typically goes something like this: Keep quiet once you arrive in Washington, learn how things work and then begin asserting yourself.

That is not exactly the path Ted Cruz is taking.

He has been in office for barely six weeks, but already the senator from Texas, a favorite of the conservative Tea Party movement, has shown a provocative, in-your-face style that has won him criticism and praise.

Cruz, 42, has been chided by Democrats and even fellow Republicans who say he trampled Senate etiquette during contentious hearings in which he went after former Republican Senator Chuck Hagel, Democratic President Barack Obama's nominee for defense secretary.

Pregnant TX Teen Sues Parents to Prevent Them From Forcing Her to Abort Baby

Posted February 14, 2013

A pregnant teenager in Houston, Texas, is suing her parents, claiming that they are trying to coerce her to have an abortion. The 16-year-old, who is reportedly two months pregnant, is being represented by the Texas Center for Defense of Life (TCDL), a pro-life legal organization. For now, the girl and her unborn child are protected by a temporary restraining order, but the battle is far from over.

According to KPRC-TV, the eight-page lawsuit (read it in its entirety herelists purported allegations waged by the girl, who is identified only by the initials R.E.K, as she’s a minor. In addition to verbal abuse, the document claims that the girl’s mother suggested potentially slipping her daughter an abortion pill.

The teen also alleges that her father threatened to take her to have an abortion, saying that the decision was final — one that the teen would have no say in.


Sierra Club takes aim at coal plants in East Texas

Posted February 13, 2013

Fairfield, TX (Texas Tribune) — Staring across a lake at the oldest coal-fired power plant in Texas, Mayor Roy Hill thinks back to the early 1970s, when his father helped bring the plant to the area.

“Quite honestly, this plant saved Fairfield,” Hill said. Should it close, he said, the economic impact would be “catastrophic.”

But closing Big Brown, as it is known, and two other 1970s-era coal plants in East Texas has emerged as a top goal of the Sierra Club. The group is escalating a campaign against the plants’ corporate owner, Dallas-based Energy Future Holdings, whose subsidiaries include the state’s largest power-generation company. Coal combustion produces mercury and other pollutants, and environmentalists say that the old plants are especially harmful to the climate and Texans’ health.

“We can’t fix the climate problem in the United States unless we fix what’s happening” at EFH, said Al Armendariz, who is leading the Sierra Club’s anti-coal push in Texas. The company, the club says, operates some of the nation’s dirtiest coal plants.


Editor's Note: If the Sierra Club takes out the coal plants in east Texas, that will put Texas on the "national" grid. Do you think that is in the best interest of Texas?
