Deceiving Christians


John R. Houk

© August 10, 2015

Mark Charles Hardie left another comment claiming as a candidate for President he is supportive of faith based Conservatives. The thing is he left the comment on this post: “This is Why we Call the Gay LobbyFascist!” Even that post was made in March 2015, Mr. Hardie’s first comment was made on August 7, 2015. Mr. Hardie’s comment was supportive of the homosexual agenda alluding to supporting same-sex marriage for after all, Jesus told us to love our enemies. Also he made it clear he was running for both the Senate to replace Barbara Boxer in California and as the Democratic nomination for POTUS.

As a Biblical believing Christian Mr. Hardie’s assertion that the Jesus paradigm of love your enemies was a poppycock stand in validating a homosexual lifestyle. I also questioned the validity of his candidacy for either the Senate or the Presidency. As of now I could not find a campaign website to examine his politics so I relied on searching out the few places asserting he is running for Office and that had some profile info. Frankly the info is a bit fantastic to believe as credible but there is a nagging truth he is a blogger for the Left Wing favorite the Huffington Post. I have no doubt this adds an air of credibility among Lefties (aka Progressives, Democrats, Marxist Utopians, et al).

I dismissed Mr. Hardie’s first comment with this post: “Justifying Homosexuality with ‘Love yourEnemies’?” This was posted on August 8, 2015.

Mr. Hardie’s second comment was not post on the 8/8 post but rather on 8/8/15 on the same location as his first comment but after my response to his first comment with a standalone post. Ergo, I am uncertain if Mr. Hardie actually read my dismissive post. Here is that second comment in order for you to ascertain for yourself if read my response or if he is simply proclaiming his Christian faith (which is a bit of a mystery if you take a look at “Justifying Homosexuality with ‘Love your Enemies’?”):

SUPPORTING CONSERVATIVE VALUES AND INSPIRING PEOPLE OF FAITH

This is a message from Mark Charles Hardie. I am a candidate for president of the United States and United States Senator representing California.

First, I want to inspire conservative people of faith. It’s vital to have faith in God. I know that keeping a strong faith and strong trust in God can protect people from spiritual attack by the wicked.

Second, I do not believe that Christians should compromise their beliefs. Instead, I think that Christians should “return to Christ”. I think Christians should return to Christ-like love and self-sacrifice. However, Christians should not be weak. Instead, Christians should seek to “cast out demons” and rid the world of Satan. I believe that Satan is defeated by the blood of Jesus.

Finally, I will proclaim the majesty and power of God for the rest of my life. (Minor editing performed)

You see, I am having a bit of a credibility issue with Mark Charles Hardie. Mr. asserts something that every Biblical Christian would shout “Amen” or “That’s good preaching”. For my point let’s re-read a portion:

“First, I want to inspire conservative people of faith. It’s vital to have faith in God. I know that keeping a strong faith and strong trust in God can protect people from spiritual attack by the wicked.

Second, I do not believe that Christians should compromise their beliefs. Instead, I think that Christians should “return to Christ”. I think Christians should return to Christ-like love and self-sacrifice. However, Christians should not be weak. Instead, Christians should seek to “cast out demons” and rid the world of Satan. I believe that Satan is defeated by the blood of Jesus.” (The BOLD emphasis is mine)

This is the same guy that wrote:

“… “Gay People Belong To God”. In other worlds, I meant to say that God Almighty created all human beings–both gay and straight. Jesus of Nazareth says, “Love your enemies”. I think Jesus wanted to open our hearts to people who may seem different. I was speaking of radical Godly compassion.” (Quoted from Justifying Homosexuality with ‘Love yourEnemies’?)

Although Mr. Hardie is implying homosexuals are the same as heterosexuals in the eyes of God Almighty. I do not agree with that sentiment. God specifically calls homosexuality an abomination; however doesn’t use a singular descriptive word, rather God is explicitly descriptive:

“You shall not lie with a male as with a woman. It is an abomination.” (Leviticus 18: 22 NKJV)

In the HuffPo blog post Mark Charles Hardie is doing a good thing; viz. condemning violence against homosexuals because of their sin-life choice. Old Testament justice according to the Law of Moses given by God Almighty proclaimed a death penalty for breaking this commandment. God did NOT endorse torture which is what occurs when gay-bashers commit violent acts against homosexuals. BUT thanks to Jesus Christ the Son of God we are no longer subject to the penalties and curses of the Law of Moses because faith in the risen Lord delivers those who believe in Christ.

It has taken a few centuries for the Scriptural view to catch up with Christian practices. Death in this life is no longer a penalty for sin. Sin opens people up to – regardless of faith in Christ or not – to the consequence of separation from God. The degree that God-separation manifests in this life is between God Almighty and the individual committing sin. The Word of God does teach us that black-hearted unrepentant sin will manifest in the Last Judgment. Thus I pray for homosexuals for all humanity has in one way or another fallen short in matters of sin until the Return of Christ Jesus.

BUT THAT DOES NOT MEAN I WILL STAND WITH VALIDATING A HOMOSEXUAL LIFESTYLE which is still an abomination in the sight of God. Violence is wrong but so is homosexuality.

Thus even though Mark Charles Hardie is condemning gay-bashing, he also implying that homosexuality is a practice that must be accepted in our culture. Our culture’s Christian heritage has slowly been whittled away by a Leftist agenda which exemplifies Secular Humanism as superior to God’s Word. Although I am increasingly in the minority opinion in our representative Republic, it is my belief that the Christian paradigm as stated in the Scriptures is superior to Secular Humanism. Hence the words of Mr. Hardie in his February 2015 HuffPo post does not match what he is telling Christians in his first comment nor in his second comment I cross posted above:

“…

Today, as I reflect upon the pain inflicted on this particular gay man, I am inspired with a new dream — not only an aspiration for LGBT equality — but a dream of gay empowerment. For without power there can be no true security or freedom of choice.

I have a dream today that gay people and lesbians will have a vested and inalienable right to universal marriage equality backed by the power of law. Gay marriage is not only a civil right to be enacted by governments, but it is a fundamental human right bestowed by the almighty hands of God.

My proposal calls for the creation of “California LGBT Police Departments” throughout the Golden State. These police departments, funded by the state, would be staffed exclusively by gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender police officers. The goals of these proposed “LGBT Squads” are to better serve communities while minimizing troubling incidents of anti-gay violence.” (Gay People Are Gods: Protecting LGBT Communities Is a Divine Right; By Mark Charles Hardie; The BlogHuffPost Gay VoicesHuffington Post; 02/25/2015 3:56 pm EST – Updated: 04/27/2015 5:59 am EDT)

Mark Charles Hardie’s HuffPo post simply DOES NOT line with the words used in both his comments. His assertions and proposals are simply ungodly and abominable in the sight of God. It is my opinion Mr. Hardie wants Christians to compromise their beliefs. He is either lying to Biblical Christians or he Lying to Homosexuals or he is lying to himself. AGAIN this is not a guy that deserves a vote especially from Biblical believing Christians.

Holy Scriptures for Mark Charles Hardie and Believer’s in Christ to Consider

18Then the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, 2“Speak to the children of Israel, and say to them: ‘I am the Lord your God. 3According to the doings of the land of Egypt, where you dwelt, you shall not do; and according to the doings of the land of Canaan, where I am bringing you, you shall not do; nor shall you walk in their ordinances. 4You shall observe My judgments and keep My ordinances, to walk in them: I am the Lord your God. 5You shall therefore keep My statutes and My judgments, which if a man does, he shall live by them: I am the Lord.

22You shall not lie with a male as with a woman. It is an abomination. (Leviticus 18: 1- 5, 22 NKJV)

And New Testament

Matthew

17“Do not think that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill. 18For assuredly, I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away, one jot or one tittle will by no means pass from the law till all is fulfilled.19Whoever therefore breaks one of the least of these commandments, and teaches men so, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever does and teaches them, he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

38“You have heard that it was said, ‘An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.’[a] 39But I tell you not to resist an evil person. But whoever slaps you on your right cheek, turn the other to him also.

43“You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor[a] and hate your enemy.’ 44But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you,[b] 45that you may be sons of your Father in heaven; for He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust. 46For if you love those who love you, what reward have you? Do not even the tax collectors do the same?

John

8But Jesus went to the Mount of Olives.

2Now early[a] in the morning He came again into the temple, and all the people came to Him; and He sat down and taught them. 3Then the scribes and Pharisees brought to Him a woman caught in adultery. And when they had set her in the midst, 4they said to Him, “Teacher, this woman was caught[b] in adultery, in the very act. 5Now Moses, in the law, commanded[c] us that such should be stoned.[d] But what do You say?”[e] 6This they said, testing Him, that they might have something of which to accuse Him. But Jesus stooped down and wrote on the ground with His finger, as though He did not hear.[f]

7So when they continued asking Him, He raised Himself up[g] and said to them, “He who is without sin among you, let him throw a stone at her first.” 8And again He stooped down and wrote on the ground. 9Then those who heard it, being convicted by their conscience,[h] went out one by one, beginning with the oldest even to the last. And Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst. 10When Jesus had raised Himself up and saw no one but the woman, He said to her,[i] “Woman, where are those accusers of yours?[j] Has no one condemned you?”

11She said, “No one, Lord.”

And Jesus said to her, “Neither do I condemn you; go and[k] sin no more.”

12Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, “I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.” (Matthew 5: 17-19, 38-39, 43-46; John 8: 1-12 NKJV)

VIDEO: Carly Fiorina For President Video

I don’t know if I’m a Carly Fiorina supporter yet, but what I do know is I’m loving Ms. Fiorina’s castigation of the Benghazigate liar Hillary Clinton. Jim Kouri wrote a post yesterday about Fiorina’s criticism of candidate Hillary.

In reading Kouri’s article I discovered he also wrote a piece on Taya Kyle’s awesome criticism of Hillary’s aspiration on being a Liar-in-Chief successor to President Barack Hussein Obama.

Carly Fiorina to GOP: Keep bashing Clinton over her Benghazi cover up

 

By Jim Kouri

July 1, 2015 5:52 PM MST

Examiner.com

The only female presidential candidate running for the GOP nomination, the former CEO of Hewlitt(sic)-Packard, Carly Fiorina told the nationally-syndicated radio host Hugh Hewitt on Tuesday that the GOP’s eventual nominee in 2016 should stop listening to commentators and drive home the facts regarding the deadly terror attack in Benghazi “over and over and over.”

Almost three years after the Sept. 11, 2012, massacre at a U.S. diplomatic mission in the large Libyan city, and government watchdogs, inspectors general and lawmakers in both houses of Congress are still trying to obtain documents from then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the Department of State, the Obama White House and others in order to understand the “who, what, when, where, how, and why” of the slaughter.

For example, it was recently discovered that the one of the Clinton family “lackeys,” Sidney Blumenthal, was emailing then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton advice on diplomatic matters in Libya much earlier than she first claimed. Clinton had used him as a member of the staff from her and Bill Clinton’s charity, the Clinton Foundation. She used him even after the White House was on record blocking Blumenthal from becoming a part of her staff, according to emails released late Tuesday by the State Department.

Fiorina appearing with radio host Hugh Hewitt said that the Benghazi Islamist attack’s aftermath looked like a cover up was taking place especially with the emails between President Barack Obama and then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton having been extensively redacted.

The public-interest watchdog Judicial Watch reported this week that Mrs. Clinton and President Obama on the night of the Benghazi attack and murders were exchanging emails which had not been turned over to the Oversight Committee, and which have in fact been redacted.

“[I]t certainly appears that Mrs. Clinton and President Obama — Secretary of State Clinton and President Obama — knew immediately that these were terrorist attacks, that they had been preplanned, that this was not a casual demonstration. And yet, both of them… stood over coffins and told the American people for many weeks following that, that this was a demonstration, that we couldn’t have predicted this,” Fiorina told Hewitt.

Fiorina reminded the listening audience that Clinton angrily exclaimed during a congressional hearing, “What possible difference could it make why or how these Americans were murdered.” Fiorina said many thought in 2012 that the Benghazi tragedy and the cover up were going to derail the Obama campaign. “[I thought it would] be Obama’s great Achilles’ heel in the 2012 election. It turned out not to be the case,” she said.

Fiorina then placed the blame on the GOP’s 2012 candidate, Mitt Romney, for not pushing this case of an executive branch cover up. “Our nominee wouldn’t drive the point home, which is why no matter how bad Benghazi looks now, we’d better have a nominee next summer who will drive this point home over and over and over in the debates, because otherwise, I fear Mrs. Clinton will get away with Benghazi just as President Obama did,” Fiorina said.

‘American Sniper’ widow Taya Kyle blasts Hillary Clinton’s leadership, morality

 

By Jim Kouri

June 29, 2015 11:23 AM MST

Examiner.com

The widow of the iconic the American warrior and subject of a blockbuster motion picture, Chris Kyle, unlike too many so-called conservative commentators, has been quite blunt in describing her thoughts and feelings about the media darling and presidential heir apparent, Hillary Clinton. For example, on a radio talk show appearance on Friday, Taya Kyle tore into Mrs. Clinton, especially about her role in the Benghazi massacre and her actions and statements in the aftermath of that Islamic terrorist attack, that displayed Clinton’s lack of leadership and her moral deficiency.

The visibly angry and disgusted wife of the man known as “American Sniper” blasted the former First Lady, U.S. Senator and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s inadequacies for the position of Commander in Chief, especially in light of her responses to the Benghazi attack. Mrs. Clinton — who, unlike Taya, is married to a draft-dodger — began her alleged cover up by first blaming an obscure anti-Muslim Internet video, but then admitted the attackers were Islamic terrorists days after just about everyone else in Washington, D.C., knew it was a planned terrorist ambush.

Born April 8, 1974, in Odessa, Texas, Christopher Scott Kyle signed up with the U.S. Navy soon after watching the events following two terrorist attacks on U.S. Embassies in 1998. A crack shot since a young boy he was quickly assigned to the Navy’s elite SEALs unit. As a Navy SEAL, Kyle served four one-year tours of duty in Iraq as a sniper and was credited with killing 160 enemy fighters thereby saving countless American lives. His own story, American Sniper, became a bestselling book that was turned into a big-budget Hollywood film by another American icon, Clint Eastwood.

Among terrorists and insurgents he was called “The Devil of Ramadi.” Al-Qaida in Iraq also placed a $20,000 bounty on his head. Kyle’s earned two Silver Stars and five Bronze Stars. His murder — by a former Marine whom he was attempting to help with his Post-Traumatic-Stress Disorder — drew an enormous outpouring of support, especially in Texas, where an estimated 7,000 people attended a public service for the late SEAL at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington. Sadly, President Barack Obama did not attend Kyle’s memorial.

During the Herald Radio interview on Friday, Taya Kyle discussed the subject of Benghazi and what she believes is a grand cover up. She told the listening audience she was “appalled that [Hillary] Clinton had the audacity to sit there and say, ‘Look people die in America every day, what’s the big deal.’ It’s almost like the real world doesn’t apply to her anymore, it doesn’t affect her, she doesn’t care.”

“The fact that we’re talking about Hillary Clinton doing anything, especially leading our country, is so frustrating to me, because of her lack of morality, because of her lack of concern and compassion… God forbid if she got elected [President of the United States],” said Taya. She also sounded disgusted that the U.S. government failed to send in help during the Benghazi attack. But to Mrs. Kyle’s sensibility the worst offense is Clinton’s handling of the situation. “Maybe [Hillary Clinton] has been in the system so long that she’s lost sight of it,” Taya said.

Taya Renae Kyle was born September 4, 1974, the same year as her beloved husband Kyle. She is now an author and veteran family activist. In the movie by Clinton Eastwood, she is portrayed by actress Sienna Miller. Kyle’s first book, “American Wife: A Memoir of Love, Service, Faith, and Renewal” is a bestseller.

STRATEGY MEMO: Restoring the Balance with the Supreme Court


Tea Party Express (TPX) has sent an election 2016 strategy for a Conservative President and the maintenance of a Conservative Republican majority in both Houses of Congress. Problematically and unfortunately, Congress may have to retain some RINOs to maintain that majority (HOWEVER, if your voting District or Senate seat can get a Conservative to replace a Republican Establishment incumbent then join the efforts to support that Conservative!!!).

In full disclosure you should examine the plan, but I’d advise you to contribute only if you are a TPX supporter. It is my opinion to use your financial resources (especially if they are a bit limited) to find a local Conservative or Tea Party organization (Here’s a good place to start) that knows more about the voting issues in your neck of the woods and donate to them.

STRATEGY MEMO: Restoring the Balance with the Supreme Court

By Taylor Budowich, Executive Director

Sent: 6/29/2015 5:59 PM

Sent by Tea Party Express

Patriots –

After the horrific week we endured at the hands of the U.S. Supreme Court, I spent the entire weekend developing a plan to restore the balance with the Supreme Court. Please take the time to review this plan and let me know what you think!

CONFIDENTIAL STRATEGY MEMO

The three branches of government were created to be equal and balancing, yet with a radical president, a weak congress, and a Supreme Court willing to invent legal interpretations that protect the President’s left-wing legacy, the balance has been absent and our nation has taken a turn for the worse.

Luckily, we have all that we need to restore the balance: the ballot box.

Left: 2016 U.S. Senate Races — Right: 2012 Presidential Electoral College Results

OBJECTIVES: (1) ELECT A CONSERVATIVE PRESIDENT; (2) PROTECT THE SENATE MAJORITY.

To maximize our resources, I’ve identified five states with competitive U.S. Senate races and critical Electoral College points needed to send a CONSERVATIVE to the White House.

Ohio (18-Points), Pennsylvania (20-Points), & Wisconsin (10-Points): These three Senate races are similar in that they all profile a conservative incumbent Senator that’s being challenged by an ultra-liberal candidate that lost statewide in 2010. These are critical races that we must carry in order to protect our Senate majority. They also deliver a critical 48 Electoral College points that would propel a conservative presidential nominee.

Florida (29-Points), & Nevada (6-Points): Florida and Nevada are similar in that these are both open seats. Senator Marco Rubio (FL) has forgone running for re-election since he’s running for President. Additionally, after targeting Senator Harry Reid as our #1 target for 2016, he has since wisely decided on retirement. These open seats present us with the opportunity to stack the Senate with even more constitutional conservative lawmakers in the mold of Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, and Mike Lee. Moreover these two states would deliver us the finals votes necessary to win back the White House!

We have begun interviewing and vetting the candidates to ensure: (1) adherence to fiscal responsibility and the U.S. Constitution, (2) ample grassroots support, (3) a credible campaign team that’s capable of winning a tough race.

As this plan develops further, I’ll update you. In the meantime, I must ask you for a financial contribution to support this massive, five-state campaign. You’ve seen our success over the years, but it has always been made possible by generous contributions from people like you. To sustain this campaign though, I need to find 100 more patriots that are able to commit to the Tea Party Honor Guard Partnership. Partners agree to make a monthly, recurring contribution to support our campaign. This allows me to create a budget around a reliable revenue stream, which is critical to putting this plan into motion. Will you join the Tea Party Honor Guard Partnership and commit to making a monthly, recurring donation?

Of course, I understand if a monthly commitment is too much. Would you possibly consider making an instant, one-time contribution to this fight? The time for complaining is over, it is time to put our money where our mouth is and hit the pavement if we want change! Join me by making an instant contribution right now:

Donate $500 INSTANTLY! ($100 per state)>>>

Donate $250 INSTANTLY! ($50 per state)>>>

Donate $100 INSTANTLY! ($20 per state)>>>

Donate $50 INSTANTLY! ($10 per state)>>>

Donate $35 INSTANTLY! ($7 per state)>>>

DONATE ANY AMOUNT INSTANTLY! >>>

 

Thank you for your time.

In Liberty,

Nails to the Coffin Holding the Constitution


John R. Houk

Ted Cruz originally favored TPP, but he has seen the light of his corrupt GOP Leadership RINOs pushing backroom deals. NOW Senator Cruz opposes this threat to our sovereignty, Constitution and immigration laws.

Apparently journalist political wags predict TPP to pass an up or down vote on the Senate floor today-Wednesday. As I am writing this it is about 4:53 PM I have discovered TPP has passed the Senate; thus thanks to the GOP Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and House Speaker John Boehner TPP advances to President Barack Hussein Obama’s desk for signature:

The Senate on Wednesday cleared legislation that will strengthen President Barack Obama’s power to negotiate a Pacific trade deal, ending a weekslong struggle to lift the measure out of the political quicksand that repeatedly came close to trapping it in both chambers.

The legislation, passed 60-38, will give Mr. Obama “fast track” authority that allows him to submit trade deals to Congress for an up-or-down vote without amendments. Negotiators have said that process is crucial to completing the 12-nation trade deal with countries around the Pacific Ocean, known as the Trans-Pacific Partnership.

Already approved by the House, the bill now heads to the White House for Mr. Obama’s signature. Its passage delivers a rare legislative victory for the second-term president whose agenda has largely stalled in a Congress now fully controlled by Republicans.

Wednesday’s vote capped a fitful campaign that joined the White House, top GOP leaders and centrist Democrats to push through Congress legislation that both ends of the political spectrum opposed. Liberals viewed expanded trade as detrimental to U.S. jobs, while conservative members didn’t want to expand Mr. Obama’s authority. (Fast-Track Trade Bill Clears Senate; From Dow Jones Newswires; Fox Business; 6/24/15)

Senator Cruz indicated he changed his mind from supporting fast tracking TPP/TPA finally becoming cognizant of Senator Majority Leader Mitch McConnell lies in secretive backroom deals. Especially pertaining to immigration. This would mean he was one of 38 nays in the up and down vote taken today on TPA out 60 treasonous yeas.

It is too late to pressure your Senator about the outcome which gives Obama near dictatorial powers in trade agreements that will further “fundamental transformation” of America agenda, it appears that the 2016 election cycle will be America’s last chance to rid the USA of self-deluded Democrats and RINO/Establishment Republicans. If you have a Republican as your Representative or Senator who claims a Conservative pedigree yet voted a “yea” for TPP/TPA and associated acronyms deleterious to an Original Intent Constitutional government, that Republican is either lying or self-deceived. Get rid of that Republican in the Primaries and of course the Democrat in the General Election.

A successful Democrat and GOP Establishment election in 2016 could represent the last nails in the coffin containing the Constitutions intended Liberty and Freedom.

TED CRUZ: OBAMATRADE ENMESHED IN CORRUPT, BACKROOM DEALINGS

By Colleen Conley

June 23, 2015

Tea Party News Network

In an exclusive at Breitbart, Ted Cruz writes today of the corrupt back room dealings and changes to TPA since he initially voted for the bill in the Senate.

In his article, Cruz states that in general, he “believes that free trade is good for America, but regarding TPA, Congress has become enmeshed in corrupt Washington back room deal-making. He also writes that he has “serious concerns that it would open up the potential for sweeping changes in our laws that trade agreements typically do not include.”

Cruz goes further to write:

“Since the Senate first voted on TPA, there have been two material changes.”

“First, WikiLeaks subsequently revealed new troubling information regarding the Trade in Services Agreement, or TiSA, one of the trade deals being negotiated by Obama.”

“Despite the administration’s public assurances that it was not negotiating on immigration, several chapters of the TiSA draft posted online explicitly contained potential changes in federal immigration law. TPA would cover TiSA, and therefore these changes would presumably be subject to be fast-track.”

Cruz says that when TPA last came up for a vote in the Senate, both he and Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) introduced amendments that would have barred fast-track treatment for any trade agreement that attempted to impact immigration law, but two other Republican senators objected, and thus they were both denied votes on their amendments. He goes on:

“At the time that Sessions and I introduced our amendments, many said our fears were unfounded. But now we have far more reason to be concerned.”

“Second, TPA’s progress through the House and Senate appears to have been made possible by secret deals between Republican Leadership and the Democrats.”

Cruz explains that TPA was blocked by a group of senators led by Sen. Maria Cantwell (D-WA) and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), “both of whom were conditioning their support on the unrelated objective of reauthorizing the Export-Import Bank.” Said Cruz:

“The Ex-Im Bank is a classic example of corporate welfare. It is crony capitalism at its worst, with U.S. taxpayers guaranteeing billions of dollars in loans for sketchy buyers in foreign nations. Ex-Im is scheduled to wind down on June 30. But powerful lobbyists in Washington want to keep the money flowing.”

Cruz suspected that Republican Leadership had promised supporters of Ex-Im a vote to reauthorize the bank before it winds down. When he asked Majority Leader Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) what precise deal had been cut to pass TPA, McConnell stated me “that there was no deal whatsoever.”

Taking McConnell at his word that there was no deal on Ex-Im, Cruz voted yes on TPA.

When the vote went to the House, Democrats opposed TPA en masse. Boehner then cut a deal with Democrats and “punished conservatives, wrongly stripping of one of his subcommittee chairmanship, and reportedly threatening to strip other conservatives of their chairmanships as well”.

Why does Republican Leadership always give in to the Democrats? Why does Leadership always disregard the promises made to the conservative grassroots?

Cruz finishes his article, writing:

Enough is enough. I cannot vote for TPA unless McConnell and Boehner both commit publicly to allow the Ex-Im Bank to expire—and stay expired. And, Congress must also pass the Cruz-Sessions amendments to TPA to ensure that no trade agreement can try to back-door changes to our immigration laws. Otherwise, I will have no choice but vote no.

There’s too much corporate welfare, too much cronyism and corrupt dealmaking, by the Washington cartel. For too long, career politicians in both parties have supported government of the lobbyist, by the lobbyist, and for the lobbyist – at the expense of the taxpayers. It’s a time for truth. And a time to honor our commitments to the voters.

Conservatives rightly do not trust President Obama. With a deal this big, kept out of the public eye, and supported by Obama and traitorous Republican leadership in both chambers, we smell a rat. Thankfully Cruz has seen the light.

UPDATE: Despite Cruz’ change of mind regarding Obamatrade, a 60-37 motion on Tuesday in the Senate to end debate on TPA sets up a vote for final passage on Wednesday. If the Senate approves fast-track or trade promotion authority (TPA), it would then be sent to Obama’s desk to become law.

Contact your Senator NOW to demand that they reject TPA, which would give Obama unprecedented powers and hurt American workers. You can also sign The Tea Party petition to Oppose the Trans-Pacific Partnership HERE.

Justin O. Smith is a frequent contributor to this blog. I tell you this because every once in a while Justin’s Father Robert makes a contribution. This is one of those cases.

Robert Smith has become weary of politicians in Congress NOT making decisions for the good of the citizens (i.e. WE THE PEOPLE) of the United States of America. Robert assumes that Conservatives still have the Founding Fathers’ vision of Liberty and Freedom for Americans whose government is supposed to be “… as the Founding Fathers recognized, to protect people’s inalienable rights to life, liberty, property, and the pursuit of happiness.” (The italic text is a quote from: The American Right, the Purpose of Government, and the Future of Liberty; By Craig Biddle; The Objective Standard, Winter 2011, Vol. 6, No. 4.)

President Abraham Lincoln fought a war to preserve the Union of the United States of America to preserve and establish a more perfect union of States in which the role of government, in line with the vision of the Founding Fathers, was pronounced in November 1963 a few months after the Battle of Gettysburg:

We here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain, that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom; and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.” (LINCOLN’S FAMOUS QUOTE AND ITS INSPIRATION [closing words of his Gettysburg Address, delivered on November 19, 1863]; quote/counterquote; 3/2/15)

Robert has correctly surmised that our Congress has forsaken this original vision transforming America from a people oriented Representative Republic into a ruling elite acting government telling people how to live and how to believe that what humanity feels is the best virtue of morality. I surmise Robert’s target of unconstitutional elitists are the Democrats and the GOP Establishment.

Republican Party’s Fiascos

By Robert Smith

Sent: 6/23/2015 5:17 AM

Our Senators and Representatives are sent to Washington by “we the people” to read the bills presented to them. It is then incumbent on them to explain to us, their constituents, and the contents of those bills, along with the reasons that they are either good or bad for our country.

Congress recently passed the Trade Promotion Authority bill, in part, for greater transparency and so we can read it. In other words, do their job and read it for them.

I do not need to read the bill, simply from understanding that it opens an easier path for passing the Trans-Pacific Partnership through a simple majority vote.; I do not need to read bills, such as these, in order to know that they are not in the best interests of our country. All one needs to do is to view the results from the passage of the North American Free Trade Agreement and the ensuing mass exodus of our U S companies to other countries.

Since our Senators and Representatives cannot, or will not, do their jobs, we need to fire them. To rid ourselves of our Representatives is relatively easy, since every two years they seek re-election. With our Senators, it is more complicated, since their terms are for six years and in only 18 states have provisions to recall their Senators. Where does your state stand? Is it one of the 18 or not? If it is not take action ensure that your state will have the ability to recall your Senators.

It is time – it is past time – that we charge the State Legislatures with the task of legislating a procedure that enables us to recall our Senators. If our

Legislators cannot or will not do this they can be replaced in 2016.

I am fed up with the RINOs (Republican – In – Name – Only) that are holding positions in the House of Representatives and the Senate. So, as voters, review their past records and make certain that they are true conservatives before casting your vote for any one.

Today in a large part, many of our country’s problems stem from the people who are far too willing to take the words of liars or idiots or both; it is time for us to throw the liars and idiots out of office.

In all of my 89 years I have never seen so much apathy in the voters. It is as though they do not care about our country’s current condition and sad state of affairs. For the people who still love the USA, vote conservative and ensure the person you vote for is a true conservative.

Ted Cruz Just Made a Bold Prediction About Harry Reid …


Ted Cruz - Scottie Hughes TPNN

Scottie Nell Hughes interviews Senator Ted Cruz in a TPNN interview. In summary Cruz tells Scottie that the GOP will fire Senator Harry Reid in 2014 as the Majority Leader of the Senate. Cruz proceeds to talk about the need for strong leadership among the potential GOP Presidential candidates in the 2016 election as opposed to  the namby-pamby contrast the Republicans have offered the last two Presidential election cycles. “Namby-pamby” is my word not Senator Cruz’s.

 

Cruz talks about the Paul Ryan-Tea Party semi-feud currently taking place saying roughly that no Conservative Republican should criticize another Conservative. By the way, Ryan and Hughes have exchanged barbs between each other. Hughes is not the only Tea Party person who feels Ryan abandoned the Tea Party Movement to join the GOP Establishment.

 

Cruz is upset about the Dem party with the aid of the Left-stream media portraying the GOP as at fault for shutting down the government. Cruz tells the truth that the no-compromise Dems were responsible for that shutdown.

 

Below is the Matthew Burke summary of the interview which is followed by the near seven minute interview between Senator Cruz and Scottie Nell Hughes.

EXCLUSIVE: Ted Cruz Just Made a Bold Prediction About Harry Reid that Will Make Conservatives Across America Stand up and Cheer

 

By Matthew Burke

August 30, 2014

Tea Party News Network

 

Ted Cruz sat down with TPNN News Director Scottie Nell Hughes, for an exclusive and wide-ranging interview at the 2014  Americans for Prosperity Defending the American Dream Summit,  taking place in Dallas this weekend.

Scottie offered a tactical attempt to get Senator Cruz to budge on announcing whether he was going to make a run for the presidency in 2016, pressing Cruz, “Is there a timeline that you will be thinking of making an announcement? Let’s just say someone was thinking of running for 2016, when would be that time that you would think of that.”

“I am happy to make an announcement right now–which is 66 days from now, I am convinced we’re going to retake the U.S. Senate and we’re going to retire Harry Reid’s as majority leader,” Cruz confidently predicted about the upcoming 2014 midterm elections, a proclamation that will make principled conservatives give a standing ovation to hear.

“Next year, we’re going to see the presidential race get moving,” Cruz elaborated. “Let me tell you the test I intend to apply as a voter, it’s the test I intend to apply as a voter who will be voting in the Republican primary in 2016. Republicans should nominate whoever is standing up and leading,” Cruz advised.

Cruz referred to the upcoming election as “the most important election of our lifetime,” then expanded on the urgency of America’s dire direction under Democrat President Barack Obama:

 

“Our country is in crisis. It’s now or never. Whoever is standing up and leading, making the case that the Obama agenda isn’t working–economically it’s a disaster, our constitutional rights are under assault–abroad, America’s receded from leadership in the world.”

 

It would be easy to make the case that Cruz is slightly hinting at a 2016 presidential run, as Cruz has certainly provided bold leadership in fighting against Obamacare, amnesty, and various other acts of Obama’s lawlessness, and has been viciously attacked for it by the establishment leadership in both political parties.

Cruz’s message to other prospective GOP presidential candidates, which so far is looking like it may be another crowded field, is “stand up and lead.” Cruz encouraged voters to look at candidates who’ve “stood up and engaged” on the important issues facing the nation over the last two or three years.

“We’ve seen two elections in a row where Republicans didn’t take it to the Democrats, didn’t draw a clear contrast. If we hide in the corner, Hillary Clinton will run right over us,” Cruz predicted. “Margaret Thatcher famously said, ‘First you win the argument, then you win the vote,’” Cruz explained.

Cruz told Scottie that what the GOP needs for the next presidential candidate is someone who paints a positive, bold, optimistic vision, that we can get back to the principles that built this country.”

It sounds like Senator Ted Cruz may have just been describing President Ted Cruz.

Scottie then asked the senator from Texas to weigh in on the somewhat of an ongoing feud between the establishment RINO wing of the GOP, versus the grassroots, pro-Constitution, pro-freedom Tea Party and libertarian wing of the Republican Party. Specifically, Scottie asked Cruz to comment on Paul Ryan’s new book in which he bashed the Tea Party and the Cruz push to stop the funding of Obamacare by using the threat of a government shutdown as leverage.

“I like Paul Ryan. He’s a good man,” Cruz responded. “I will say that I don’t think it’s beneficial when Republican leadership throws rocks at conservatives, at conservative activists across this country,” Cruz answered about Ryan’s attacks against the Tea Party.

Cruz then blasted the leftstream Democrat media complex, who he referred to as “useful idiots,”  for perpetuating the lie that Republicans shut down the government:

“One of the greatest lies that the mainstream media repeats ad nauseam, is the lie that Republicans shut down the government. It’s simply not true. The House of Representatives, House Republicans voted over-and-over-and-over again to fully fund the federal government, but to defund Obamacare. The reason the government shutdown is because President Obama and Harry Reid wanted to shut down the government, and they said very publicly that they thought it benefited them politically to shut down the government, in part, because they could count on the useful idiots in the media, and sadly on a fair number of Senate Republicans, to go on television and blame the shutdown on Republicans.”

Cruz told Scottie that when Republicans voted to fully fund the government except for Obamacare, and Democrats refused to negotiate, it was the Democrats who chose to close down the full government, not the Republicans.

Cruz said the fight to defund Obamacare, was a fight against “the most disastrous legislation in modern times.”

“How many Americans wished Republicans had stood together and Democrats hadn’t shut down the government, but had been willing to work to avoid the disaster, the train wreck that is Obamacare?” Cruz asked rhetorically.

VIDEO: Dr. Ben Carson Just Made a HUGE Announcement


Ben Carson

Matthew Burke posting on Tea Party News Network (TPNN) found a video of Ben Carson talking about the virtues in educating yourself before you vote for something. Burke tantalizes the reader by insinuating Ben Carson is announcing his choice to run for President or not. He really doesn’t; nonetheless the message is more important than the Burke teaser.

Palin, Please Unite Conservatives in New Political Party


Sarah Palin 7

John R. Houk

© December 2, 2012

 

I remember how disappointed I was when Sarah Palin announced she was not running for President. In hindsight it was very prescient for Palin not to run in the 2012 cycle.

 

It was evident the Establishment Republicans were still running the show and only tossed bones to the true Conservative base to acquire votes. I mean look at the case of Missouri and GOP candidate Todd Akin. It is a case in point. Akin led incumbent Senator McCaskill by double digits at one time. Akin makes one faux pas about abortion and “legitimate rape”. Expectantly the Leftist Dems and RINOs were all over him for the phrase. However it was disappointing that the Establishment Republicans caved in to a Leftist PC moment and not only denounced Akin’s faux pas but informed him NO Republican Party money would go for his election campaign. Let’s face it Akin was a Tea Party Conservative with Conservative Social Values. That means Akin was too Conservative for the Establishment Republicans pulling the purse strings.

 

Palin would never have had the support of Establishment Republicans. That is why Mitt Romney won the nomination and lost the election. We Conservatives that are the hugest part of the GOP were left with an ‘anybody but Obama’ choice.

 

This is one of the reasons I am leaving the Republican Party. I will still vote for Conservative Republicans in my voting area; however I am going to actively seek another political party to get behind. When that day of the choice for a new political party occurs, if that Party is able to field candidates in my local area I will even say bye-bye to the local Conservative Republicans. That is how much I believe the Establishment Republicans screwed the opportunity to dump President Barack Hussein Obama.

 

Talk is finally beginning about Sarah Palin’s political choices for 2016. If Palin sticks with the GOP, she would not win the nomination OR if she wins the nomination the Establishment Republicans will undermine her campaign for President.

 

One reason Obama won reelection is because the Dems and the MSM presented an absolute united front to win Obama’s reelection. Whereas the GOP were divided between Conservatives and Establishment GOP, Social Conservatives and Establishment GOP, Conservatives and RINOs, Anybody but Obama Republicans and anti-Mormon Christians and so on with the scenarios of divided Republicans.

 

Rather than live with a disunited GOP I would rather be a part of a united front that stands against a united Leftist machine. I would rather be a part of a Conservative political organization that is united and emerging than a part of the Republican Party working against Conservative Principles that include Christian Values and an Original Intent Constitution. Sarah Palin would have a better chance of a national nomination for President in a new political party.

 

Here is a historical analogy.

 

The Republican Party came into existence favoring abolitionism in 1854. The Republican Party fielded a national candidate in John C. Fremont for the first time in 1856. The political climate of 1856 was dissatisfaction with America’s leaders which led to the division of Whig Party faithful. The Whigs and the Democratic Party were the two major political parties prior to 1856. Political parties found a migration of voters that eventually decimated the Whigs forming competing political parties. Southern Whigs notably joined the Democratic Party. The Democrats major opponents were divided between the new Republican Party and the Know Nothing movement (officially the American Party). The Republicans under Fremont almost won that election and I am guessing they may have if it was not for the Know Nothings. The eventual winner was Democrat James Buchanan that although from Pennsylvania was Southern Sympathizer politically (SA a glimpse of Buchanan’s private life).

 

The political divisions of 1856 led the Free North States to place Republican Abraham Lincoln in Office in 1860 causing most of the Southern Slave States to secede initiating the Civil War. Lincoln’s closest competitor in the Electoral College was Southern Democrat John C. Breckinridge.

 

Today America is polarized between a Leftist vision for America and a Conservative vision for America. Unfortunately the journalists of the Mainstream Media and the intelligentsia dominating the Academics in Colleges are committed to the Leftist vision. The Conservatives primary vehicle to communicating fiscal Conservatism and Social Conservatism is a free Internet and Talk Radio. The Internet and Talk Radio is currently the best way to mobilize grass roots activism to break down the stranglehold of the MSM (journalism, TV & Hollywood) and Leftist Professors.

 

I pray Sarah Palin is the catalyst to unite Conservatives to reverse the curse of anti-Conservative and anti-Christian of the Leftist vision for America.
