The Political Circus Continues.

John McCain surfaced long enough to throw a few more harpoons at the Republican Conservatives with his endorsement of Mitch McConnell and the so-called ‘gang of six’. John has had experience with gangs, remember? It’s easy to see that McCain is as wrong-headed on this as he is on illegals.

His mantra in an interview he did on Sean Hannity’s radio program was “We don’t have the votes, we don’t have the votes”. Please, John… you’re really peeing on the parade. Be like the ‘Old Soldier’ and ‘just fade away’.

In fact, Republicans and a few Democrat allies in the Senate came within three Democrat votes of passing the bill. With the economy in shambles it should be possible to turn some of the Democrat Senators that are facing re-election… instead of having our efforts scattered all over hell n’ gone with self-seeking RINO politicians showboating with harebrained schemes, which only work to further the shadow of Marxist domination over this country.

All I know is that my state, my county, my city and my friends are hurting. I don’t know of one person or family who has not been impacted by the wildly irresponsible spending gorge that Obama’s government has orchestrated. People go around with worried expressions. They aren’t spending any more money than they absolutely have to. They plan their trips, even around town, to use the least amount of fuel possible.

People are hoarding food… this isn’t like the millennium. People see what’s going on or, more precisely, what isn’t going on in this country, and they are very worried and are being even more conservative about the way they lead their day to day lives.

The word out here is ‘no more taxesno debt increase‘. For us, 2012 just can’t come fast enough.

Obama; At War With America.

What they haven’t told you… the switchboards in the Capitol were melted down yesterday, and again today, as America gave voice to long pent up anger.

Congressional staffers were pushed to the limit, trying to justify wildly unpopular stands taken by some members over the debt and cost cutting issues, as scheme after scheme by the Republican leadership and that little RINO herd are revealed to be completely empty promises of massive cuts ‘over the next ten years’.

We have plenty to deal with sorting out our own party and its leadership, but we cannot for a second take our eyes off of the goal of removing the worst president in US history, Barack Hussein Obama.

All else aside, Obama’s defeat is, and will remain, the primary goal of Conservative Patriots… but in the process we’re going RINO hunting.

Is It A Sell – Boehner – Out – McConnell – Sell – Cantor – Out – Coburn – Sell – Jordan – Out?

Once upon an election, we entrusted the Republican leadership with guiding our nation away from the yawning abyss that Barack Obama has built. I’ve been watching the incredible circus which has characterized the debt ceiling and ‘spending cut’ negotiations so far. It’s incredible to watch all of these RINO sellouts fall all over themselves to give ObaMao and his lackeys everything they want.

What is astonishing to me is that this is after all the smoke and mirrors are peeled away, and America gets to see just what an immense rip-off of our children’s futures is being crafted, as usual, mostly behind closed doors.

Equally astonishing is that these respective lawmakers are purposefully making themselves deaf to the absolute cacophony of very pointed protest coming from the now over 75 per cent of the American people who don’t want an increase in the debt ceiling.

It seems that the RINOs of the Republican leadership have all shown us their true colors, which from where I’m sitting seem to be various shades of yellow.

Mark Levin came out yesterday and said we should primary their asses. Whoops, that won’t fly on some of my affiliates so we’ll say something safely generic like ‘butts’.

If these scheming, treacherous snakes think they’re going to make lame agreements with not a prayer of them ever being honored, while the country is sold out again… being primaried will be the least of your worries. We’ll run conservatives against you and you will lose. We’ll turn the full power of the Tea Party Patriots to seeing that you’re run out of office.

Sick And Tired.

We’ve been doing this column for two and a half years now. The driving force and the inspiration for skipmaclure.us is my editor, Dee. She’s the unsung hero behind the scenes that makes this whole thing work.

Like myself, she has a full time career, making this conservative outreach a labor of love. Dee’s a rare creature. She’s a rock-solid conservative in a country that has surrendered itself to the opiate of government cradle-to-grave entitlements, known as socialism. I’ve learned much from her about the nuts and bolts of everyday life under the ‘soft tyranny’ which is the British social welfare system.

She has related stories to me such as entire extended families, none of whom has ever held a paying job. The ‘dole’ has become trans-generational. You have more and more people in the UK living off of smaller and smaller productive segments of society. It brings to mind something that the ‘Iron Lady’ Margaret Thatcher said, “The problem with socialism is that sooner or later you run out of other people’s money”.

European style socialism is communism light. By its very nature it lacks the fierce entrepreneurial spirit that has imbued the people of America with the indomitable will to achieve, and instead drowns the people in a deluge of government regulation and ever increasing demands for more and more taxes, a crushing burden on citizens and the economy. Beginning to sound familiar?

The citizens of Europe have been beaten down by political and social class systems that our forbears left behind for the new world. That’s what socialism does… it destroys, it never builds, it takes and never gives. It destroys the heart and soul of nations.

Our mercifully brief encounter with socialism, a la Barack Hussein Obama and the DeMarxist clown college, has America up on its feet and raging. The message… and it’s resonating throughout this land… is that we will not tolerate ‘government as usual’. Politicians of all stripes have been using America and Americans as their own private fiefdoms for far too long.

Sick and tired of being sick and tired. It’s as good a way as any to describe the mood of the country going into the 2012 elections. If the ObaMarxists thought they got their clocks cleaned in 2010… well, as we used to say in the Corps… Stand By…

The Republicans’ D-Day… Live Free…

The time is here. This is the defining moment of this Congress and these leaders. Fully seventy percent of the American people do not want an increase in the debt limit.

MaoBama has all the little Marxists scattering throughout the beltway, desperately attempting to change the narrative. Increasingly exposed before America and the world as the feckless, incompetent idealogue he is, Barack Hussein Obama has painted himself and his Marxists into a corner.

The most recent Gallup and Rasmussen polls both show any generic Republican defeating Obama in the 2012 presidential race by five to eight points, and counting. Increasing numbers of disaffected voters identifying themselves as Democrats are leaving the fold, along with increasing numbers of other ‘safe’ ObaMao constituents such as the so-called ‘security moms’, who flocked to his Plastic Banana Good Time Rock an’ Roll image (thanks, Rush), so carefully crafted to deceive unwary Americans.

MaoBama is in deep water, and his Marxist followers know it. Every DeMarxist stunt in their really worn playbook has been pulled out with entirely predictable frequency every time the Anointed One has stubbed his toe. In fact, they’ve dragged these straw ponies out (smelling strongly of dead fish) so many times that virtually no one except the statists of the Lame Stream Media and the extreme leftist radicals even pay attention to it anymore.

The latest barrage of bull bleep comes from one of the true intellectual giants of the left, Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX), as she once again tries to polish up the tarnish on the race card. She repeatedly whines “Why this president?” Why this president, Sheila? It’s because you and he, and people just like you, are the racists.

Barack Hussein Obama has purposely set American against American. This is the most divisive president in the 235 year history of our country. Little boy George ‘I stepped all in it’ Stephanopoulos made the Lame Stream shine with the statement that Obama has done ‘remarkably well’. Back to the drawing board, George. Try something with a little imagination next time.

Republicans have this one chance to prove to the American people that they are fit to lead this country away from the yawning abyss which is the national debt, and the even more imminent debt ceiling battle which is taking place as I write.

We cannot allow reckless, weak politicians to seek the ‘easier softer way’. We’ve been there and done that before, which is largely what led us to this pass to start with.

Here it is again. To the Republican leadership… This is either your finest hour or your greatest peril. Be warned, the American people will not support backroom political deal making… not this time… not again. Hear that, Mitch?

McConnell Sell Out.

Just had that feeling… I wrote about it yesterday… I’ve learned to trust my inner genie. The Senate Republicans have attempted to usurp the more than 70% of the American people and the Republican dominated House, whose stubborn refusal to cave to the pressure of the Republican establishment and do another sell-out compromise with the statists of the Obama regime has resulted in Mitch McConnell’s so called last ditch ‘backup plan’.

Its brilliance lies in its simplistic stupidity… Let Obama set his own debt ceiling. Absolute genius. That’s like giving a junkie the deed to an opium factory. Mitch’s RINO reasoning goeth thusly… If we let Obama raise his own debt limit, all the little people out there will see what a baad man Obama really is and will flock to the squishy Republican ‘moderation’ zone.

I like what Erick Erickson of Redstate called it… ‘the Pontius Pilate Pass the Buck Act of 2011′. That pretty well sums it up for me, too. I knew John Boehner was involved here as well, with his comment ‘We should have a backup plan’. Yeah, John… the backup plan is to say no!

In the meantime, while these two are bleating about ‘backup this and backup that’, ‘Barack the Destroyer’ is out there lying through his eyeteeth, doing his best to panic and stampede the nation’s seniors, saying that he didn’t know if there would be money in the coffers for Social Security and disability checks. That’s a lie in and of itself. Checks to Social Security and disability recipients are not, and never were, in danger. Neither are payments to the military.

Force this bunch of clowns back on the reservation and tell them this is it. No deals on the debt limit!

Don’t Cave!

Well… the Republican leadership is. Leading, I mean. At least, at present. Boehner has stuck to our guns and told Obama to chew an old sock… No tax increases.

Okay, but don’t fault me for feeling a bit cautious and, truth be known, skeptical as well. I have seen the Republicans with strong hands, only to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory too many times to get giddy about this crew, in any case. John Boehner is not exactly the lion of the right, no matter how much we want him to be.

I think of Boehner and I think of back door deal-making… and the establishment ‘don’t rock the boat’ and ‘we know better than you do’ attitude that so many of us have come to detest. One of the reasons the Tea Party and Citizen Patriot movements came into being to start with.

I think perhaps Eric Cantor is a bit closer to the ‘rebellious’ freshman class. Those 71 principled patriots unexpectedly resisted the blandishments of the party hacks from both sides, and not a few threats from various sources, to become a force of their own in the 112th Congress.

But keep in mind, Eric is himself a product of the establishment, though his performance in these critical times thus far has been exemplary. I’ve heard him described as “A young man in a hurry”. Fine. As long as he tows the conservative banner with him.

Between the adamant refusal of the Conservatives to consider tax increases, ‘revenue enhancers’, or any of the other scams put forth by ObaMao’s Marxists, and the absolute blizzard, the continuing blizzard I may add, of calls, emails and visits to Republican members, even the somewhat timid, tentative Boehner seemed to stiffen up. There’s just one thing that bothers me… there’s still plenty of time for him to roll over.

Timothy Geithner – The Elmer Fudd Of Economics.

Actually, there’s a strain of Chicken Little there too…’The sky is falling, the sky is falling’. It’s the left’s Rocky Horror Show, complete with a gallery of freaks that would make the Rocky cast jealous. It’s the full press of all the Marxists in the government to terrify the American people and stampede the Congressional Republicans into agreeing to raise the debt limit.

Timothy Geithner is a classic example of the incompatibility of the leftist ‘econo-ideologue’ and the American capitalist system. His public advocation of Keynesian economic principles has shown everyone with the wits to see that this man, former head of the New York Fed, little understands what actually drives the economic engine which is America.

The debt is impossibly high and the Fed has pumped billions upon billions of absolutely worthless dollars (meaning borrowed) into a small selected sector of the economy, meaning of course the banks, who instead of having to pay for their collusion in the sub-prime mortgage disasters, were rewarded by the government, who had mandated the sale of sub-prime instruments by the investment banks in the first place. Very few of these guys had their hands clean. Geithner was instrumental in seeing to it that these ‘friends of Obama’ were taken care of. It’s the largest political payoff and money laundering scheme in history.

The most pernicious sellout of the economy has been to the public service sector unions. Timothy was very much in the loop as billions of dollars were pumped into states and municipalities to prop up union jobs. Union leaders were more frequent (and welcome) than the Joint Chiefs to the ‘House That Obama Soiled’. It will be very interesting to see what questions a post El Obama regime Federal Grand Jury would have for Timmy and his cohorts.

The jobless numbers… in a word…. sucked. ObaMao is in deep trouble. El Presidente was confident that John Boehner could be cajoled and conned into the DeMarxists’ carefully laid trap of phased-in cuts, with several dollars to one spending-to-cut ratio over ten years. The problem is… every time in the past that we’ve fallen for that… well, just ask George Bush… he paid for that mistake with his presidency. The Leftists’ promises are, as always, worthless.

John Boehner has seen the light. He’s finally on the program… at least so far. Seems like John was given some spine by a very determined and unwavering freshman class which has wrapped itself in the mandate of the American Patriot Movement.

And then there’s the absolute tidal wave of everyday American patriots, who have been bombarding Congress and our Republican leadership with an unwavering message… Stand up or get out! Keep it up, America. It’s working.

David Plouffe And The Hallucinogenic Pipe Dream.

I’ve been wondering if that paragon of White House fable fabrication may be on lysergic acid… obviously slipped into his cornflakes by a stealth Tea Party type bent on destroying the Wrong House narrative.

The spin just won’t fly any more. We keep hearing the misadministration’s grandiose statements, just chock full of loaded and misleading terminology. No matter how many times they bleat their Marxist diatribe, no matter how often they disguise their true intent with the language of obfuscation… nothing but nothing will put lipstick on this pig.

Mr Plouffe has announced, “People will not be voting based on the unemployment figures in 2012″. Excuse me while I say, “What?” What universe spawned people like Plouffe and the legion of Obama apologists? Wait! That must be the answer. It’s an alien invasion (another one) and they’ve taken over the administration… lock, stock and vacation schedule.

Eight million jobs lost since the Anointed One assumed his throne. I heard an outrageous statement by some brain-damaged hack that new layoffs had virtually come to a halt. This dude hasn’t been out to California lately, has he? We’re still shedding jobs and businesses at a frightening rate. He threw that desperate thread out there as a ‘comforting indicator’ of the ‘recovery’. Excuse me? I should do an entire article on that alone… great title opportunity, too… “The Recovery That Barack Built”.

Somebody convinced that poor boob that the government’s carefully massaged math was something other than pure fantasy. I guess we can’t be too harsh on poor old David, either… he’s got plenty of company.

Here it is, David. This upcoming election will very much hinge on employment… or far more likely, the lack of. You and the other minions of the Darkside are about to meet the American people… and we’re really sick and tired. But, far more than that, we’re mad… we’re more than mad… the undercurrent in the country is rage.

We have an enraged and highly-motivated populace who intend to see the moral, social and economic destruction stopped… and stopped now. No more compromise, no more deals.

It’s All Up To Us Now.

It’s a long way from 1776 and the momentous decision made by courageous and determined men to put aside the oppressive yoke of olde worlde monarchic dynasty and create a fledgling nation consecrated in free men’s blood.

The 56 signatories to the Declaration of Independence were fully well aware that their lives were definitely on the line. The British were not known for leniency, and a charge of high treason against the person of King George the Third was a quick trip to a hanging or worse. Five of the signatories of the Declaration of Independence were tortured to death by the British.

Both British regulars and colonial loyalist militias were accused of atrocities against the colonists, which only served to enrage the Americans even farther. The point is that every single person associated with the revolution was under the threat of death. This wasn’t some high flown political theory… this was right now in real time.

There was no one to help them… they were on their own. By a fortuitous accident of history, the French King saw an opportunity to stick his thumb in King George’s eye later in the war. The influx of men and material enabled the colonialists to ultimately triumph.

Today, we have much the same situation with Barack Hussein Obama and his gang of Marxists. This may be the new American revolution… we’re in a fight to the finish with an entire government and every single person who chooses to identify as a DeMarxist. We’re not simply setting out to win an election, though no one will deny that this is an election we cannot lose.

But it’s more than that. We have to deliver a crippling blow to this evil philosophy of mismanagement, corruption, greed and the erosion of the rule of law. We have to literally break the back of the Democrat Party as it is presently constituted.

We’ll never eliminate the liberal mindset entirely… there will always be those who feel as though someone or something owes them sustenance. But we can send them slinking into the background of history as a nightmare story to be used when children misbehave. It’s all on us now.
