Now We Know The Reason The GOP Establishment Is “Warming Up” To Trump

TrumpDealer

Trump says he will work with Leftist Democrats, will make ‘great deals’ with them.

One of the reasons why outsiders have been polling well in this cycle is because the electorate is pissed-off and sick and tired of the GOP Party Establishment making ‘deals’ with Obama and the Democrats and handing them their entire agenda to send the country off-the-cliff into Marxist Socialism with wide-open borders to the third world.

Along comes Trump – who talked the talk of someone who would fight back and do the very things our so-called representatives have refused to do: STOP and undo the Leftist/Marxist/Islamist Agenda that Obama and the Democrats have imposed on the country.

Then the Ruling Class and their apparatchiks in the Establishment Media went on a massive blitzkrieg to destroy Trump, doing everything from suggesting he was a criminal to a wannabe Hitler.  It is why it was baffling that these same Establishment types have suddenly done an about-face and publicly said in the last week they can ‘work with Trump’.

Now we know why.

For those of us scratching our heads as to how and why the GOP Party Establishment would suddenly do an about-face and embrace Trump, The Donald goes ahead and lets us all know the actual reason why:

 

There you have it.  He will work with the Democrats, just like McConnell, McCain, Graham, Boehner, Ryan and the rest of the Establishment have said they would do, and did.

In fact Trump said yesterday that the GOP Establishment “Likes me more than nasty guy Ted Cruz”.  How and why is that suddenly a PLUS for a guy who originally fashioned himself as an opponent of the GOP Establishment and won the YUUUGE following he has garnered??

Making America great again?  No.  Trump will do no such thing if the ‘art of the deal’ is what he thinks the Presidency is all about.  Making deals to ‘get along’ is what got us into this mess in the first place Mr. Trump.

‘Working with’ the very people and party that have destroyed the country is exactly what the GOP Establishment has already done.  Why make deals with Leftists and the very inside cabal that his mobs of followers think he is going to defy?  What sense does that make?  Does Trump not understand the fact that the Left NEVER compromises their Agenda, NEVER surrenders any ground and ALWAYS requires our sides’ capitulation for any ‘deal’ to be struck??

Will Trump ‘make deals’ and work with with ISIS, Al Qaeda and Iran for the sake of ‘getting along’?  His recent spate of comments in the last few days is not comforting and raises MAJOR red flags. Apparently, getting a deal and getting along is more important than standing on fundamental principles according to The Donald.

Must be more of those ‘New York Values” he fancies.  You know, the kind that made avowed Communist Bill DeBlasio the Mayor of New York.

I don’t think the desperate mobs of people supporting Trump are listening to what he is actually saying beyond entertainment sloganeering.  Trump said on 60 Minutes, he was going to replace ObamaCare with UNIVERSAL – SINGLE PAYER health care.

Donald Trump said that “Obamacare is a disaster” and that he plans to repeal it and replace it with a government-funded universal healthcare plan.

Government-funded ‘universal healthcare’??????????????

Forget the ‘bone’ he threw about ‘private plans’ and ‘negotiating with different companies’ because a government-funded single payer healthcare system cannot, and will not permit a free-market system competing with the government and the cronies who are going to be making bank in such a system.

No WONDER the Establishment Ruling Class is suddenly embracing Trump!  That proposal is the very Soviet system that ObamaCare was designed to usher-in after it destroyed the health insurance industry.  Trump is simply going to hand Obama, Pelosi and Schumer the gift that the Fabian Socialists have intended to do for 100 years, that even Obama himself couldn’t do right away.

Trump will ‘make a deal’ and hand them what they have wanted as their brass ring in a single swoop.

And not a wrinkle of concern from his supporter base.

Of course Trump knows the mob he leads, and he, himself said – he could shoot someone on 5th Avenue and not lose a single supporter. Joke or not, there is truth to that statement.

But what if Trump shoots the very reason why he garnered so much support in the first place?  It remains to be seen whether his supporters are just a seig-heiling mob that want him as a political messiah, or whether or not they actually give a crap about the issues Trump says he was going to “fix”.

Alarmingly, there is a pattern to Trumps statements that should garner concern.  Trump keeps talking about making deals as President, as if the Executive branch exists for the sole purpose of making deals instead of executing the Laws of the Land and upholding the Constitution, which is NOT NEGOTIABLE.  Trump may very well think the Constitution negotiable if getting a ‘deal’ ‘trumps’ standing on the very foundational principles that made America what it once was.

The Donald cannot make America ‘great again’ with a mindset like that.  For a President we need a faithful Administrator not a Monty Hall gameshow host.

 

Trump: I’ll Work With Democrats

Tuesday, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump said if he were president, he would work with  Democrats including House Minority Leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY).

…“Well, I think that I’m going to be able to get along with Pelosi. I think I’m going to be able to — I’ve always had a great relationship with Nancy Pelosi, I’ve never had a problem.” Trump said.

…Hey, look, I think I’d be able to get along well with Schumer, Chuck Schumer. I was always very good with Schumer. I was close to Schumer in many ways. And it’s important to get along. It’s wonderful to say you’re a maverick and you’re going to stand up and close up the country, and all other things, but you have to get somebody to go along with you.

Obama’s Illegal Gun Ban: DO NOT COMPLY – REFUSE. RESIST.

ResistOdds

Obama’s InJustice Department warns gun owners: “We will be looking for those individuals who seek to avoid registering (their guns)”.

Obama thinks he’s clever.  He’s not.  He’s a totalitarian maniac establishing a Soviet-style police state.   His DECREE from HIS PEN to “close” the phantom “gunshot loophole” today, was defacto gun registration and firearms ban and sets the establishment of the same kind of climate of fear crap that Josef Stalin, Mao, Mussolini, Pol Pot and the other assorted genocidal maniacs established upon their citizens.

His ‘Executive Actions’ (aka: Imperial Decrees) sound mild on the surface – but are a defacto federal gun registration program.  In the details of 10 Executive Actions contains a mandate that YOUR DOCTOR report patients they think are “mentally unstable” to the NICS background check system.  Again, while that might ‘sound’ reasonable on the surface – what defines ‘mentally unstable’ is wide open to whatever interpretation the government may desire.  If you’re a returning veteran, a Climate Change disbeliever, or a Republican – you may find yourself unable to purchase, possess or own a firearm under the decree just announced by His Heinous.

Not much different than how the Feds can arbitrarily put you on a No-Fly list that you cannot rectify or appeal.  A list made in secret by a bureaucracy that is unaccountable to anyone but the President.

Like Mussolini, Obama’s dictatorial arrogance was on full Squadrisi-styled display. “We also can’t wait,” Obama ranted. “Until we have the Congress that’s in line with the majority of Americans, there are actions within my legal authority that we can take to help reduce gun violence and save more lives.”

Oh really?  I guess the landslide election of Republicans is not in line with a majority of Americans according to His Heinous.  And until they do his bidding, he will act – unilaterally.  As he sees fit.

His feigned alligator tears at the mention of the Sandy Hook shooting was a feeble mask for the heated rage and hate simmering beneath the surface for an America and Americans he wants destroyed, and a Constitution he loathes as simply “written on paper”.

 

His Royal Heinous Obama casually spoke in grand untruths in this moment during his Pravda Press announcement of his decrees – when recounting that he taught Constitutional law – at the University of Chicago.   It should frighten everyone that Obama can boldface lie so casually that he “believes in the Second Amendment” when his actions and past statements prove otherwise.

Obama certainly DOES NOT believe in the Second Amendment as noted by Professor John Lott Jr. who met with and talked with Obama at the University of Chicago in 1996 and discussed this very subject. Lott said emphatically again on Tuesday afternoon’s Mark Levin Show that Obama stated bluntly that he “does not believe citizens should be able to access or be allowed to own guns”.

This would be because Obama is an acolyte of Chairman Mao’s “Prairie Fire” policy regarding efforts to impose a Communist Revolution of whom Obama mentor and self-proclaimed Communist and terrorist William Ayers urged via the violence of Che Guevara.  Obama today even cited Mao’s Communist China as an example of the kind of total gun control he truly seeks:

ObaMao2

Obama Cites Communist China As The Goal For American Gun Control

“Some of you may recall at the same time that Sandy Hook happened, a disturbed person in China took a knife and tried to kill, with a knife a bunch of children in China. But most of them survived because he didn’t have access to a powerful weapon”

Obama is establishing 4,000 new laws and ‘policies’ by decree effective January 1, 2016, bypassing Congress and the States, as dictator to make ‘law’.  As with ObamaCare – none of us know all the details that are in any of these ‘Executive Actions’, despite the fact Obama says ‘If you like your guns, you can keep your guns”.  10 Actions were announced just today by Imperial decree, the details of which are as yet unknown.

This is all imposing an Intimidation factor.  Liability punishments for non-compliance that will scare citizens who might sell one gun to a family member or a friend into complying with tyranny because the costs to fight this in court will be abhorrently costly.  So guns, ammo and ability to purchase them ‘legally’ will become harder.

In addition, the gooste-stepping Stormtroopers of the Regime are also stepping up their rhetoric against those of us who oppose their tyranny, and are pre-emtively warning that they intend to intimidate and make examples of those they can, thus creating the Soviet/Nazi-style climate of fear that subjugates a population to accept tyranny.

Loretta Lynch

LORETTA LYNCH WARNS GUN OWNERS: WE’RE WATCHING YOU

‘Looking for those individuals who seek to avoid registering’

U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch issued what Second Amendment supporters likely see as a dark warning about the White House’s looming executive order on guns, telling a group of reporters the federal government would be actively searching out those firearms’ owners who want to sidestep registration.

In her words, as reported by Breitbart: “We will be looking for those individuals who seek to avoid registering,” she said, after a meeting with President Obama about his upcoming executive orders on gun control.

Her statement was in reference to the widely reported portion of Obama’s executive order that’s supposed to expand the definition of “gun dealer” to include even those who make private, one-on-one transactions. Specifically, his order would then require anyone who’s “engaged in the business of dealing in firearms” to register as a dealer, and thus become subject to the background checks’ process, as Breitbart reported.

The order doesn’t make any exceptions based on the numbers of gun sales, and as Fox News legal analyst Andrew Napolitano pointed, that means even an individual selling one firearm to another individual would have to abide the mandate.

As such, Lynch vowed the feds, through her Department of Justice and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, would be on the watch for violators.

Let me just step in here a second to state a fact that many Americans willfully ignore: OBAMA’S EXECUTIVE ACTION DECREES HAVE NO POWER OR FORCE OF LAW UPON THIS PEOPLE, unless they surrender and submit to this dictatorship.  He, his entire regime and the whole entire Federal Beast is Lawless, and has no legitimate moral or legal authority over a free people.

All they have is the guns they are going to put to your heads and those of your children for refusing to comply with this tyrannical dictatorship.

Any American who refuses to comply with this decree are in NO VIOLATION of real law, they are simply in violation of a dictatorship’s decrees.

To be plain, Obama and Loretta Lynch themselves are in violation of the Supreme Law of the United States and in violation of our inalienable God-given Rights.  They are traitors and have committed HIGH TREASON.  This decree simply solidifies the fact that this government is wholly tyrannical and illegitimate.

“[We’ll watch for private sellers who] seek to avoid registering [as] engaged in the business of selling firearms,” she said, CBS News reported.

Obama’s Gun-Control Order Is Dictatorial

Obama’s Unconstitutional Gun Ban

First, by edict Obama may try to use the “no-fly” list as a way to prevent some Americans from purchasing firearms. Second, Obama may try to stretch the definition of a firearms dealer beyond the existing statutory law, and require federal background checks prior to a purchase.

Both are arbitrary and unconstitutional.

The right to bear arms, as the Supreme Court has made clear, is an individual right that aligns with the moral imperative of self-defense. The evil attacks in Paris and San Bernardino have illustrated for a new generation of Americans the moral imperative of self-defense through firearms ownership.

So expect Obama to do what he does best — ignore the law and impose a federal edict over an area where the federal government has no statutory power. Expect Obama to require federal background checks on firearms purchases currently exempted by federal law from requiring background checks.

It works like this. Under the current law, if I wanted to sell you one of my firearms, you would give me cash, and I’d give you a gun. I do not need a federal firearms license to sell you my gun because it is my private property and I am not a gun dealer. In fact, Congress specifically exempted me from federal oversight when it defined a federal firearms dealer in 18 U.S.C. §921 (a)(11).

The law very clearly says that you are not a firearms dealer if you make “occasional sales, exchanges, or purchases of firearms for the enhancement of a personal collection or for a hobby, or who sells all or part of his personal collection of firearms.” The law does not limit the size of a personal collection. For years, foes of the Constitution have sought to change this law. Both Republican- and Democrat-controlled Congresses have failed to amend this safe harbor because the majority of Americans believe in the Second Amendment.

…Obama has grown very comfortable attacking Constitutional rights by edict and executive action. He is a president at odds with a long bipartisan tradition of respect for Constitutional values.  Presidents up to this point have mostly respected core constitutional liberties, but this president is a menace to the Constitution.

Obama and this regime and every single politician and government official and Alphabet agent supporting this treason are infringing on an inalienable right.

All done in the name of ‘common sense reforms’. Once they get away with this, how long before these same tyrants demand ‘common sense free speech reforms’???;  ‘Common sense searches and seizures’?; ‘Common sense Christian Religion reforms’?

Don’t laugh and think those absurd.  Leftists are already talking about imposing those.

America Officially No Longer A Republic

soviet_america

Obama’s regime is lawless.  No one holds him to account.  Corruption is exhonerated. Laws are drafted in secret or enacted by decree.  Bills are passed in the middle of the night without anyone reading them. We are become Soviet.

Fundamental Transformation nearly complete.  Your so-called “Representatives” at the Kremlin – er …. CONgress have doomed our economy and your children’s economic future by automatically raising the debt ceiling for the next two years.

Obama’s entire lawless agenda has been fully funded and financed by YOU via the chicanery of the Ruling Class Oligarchy in Mordor on the Potomac.

Planned Parenthood?

Fully funded.

ObamaCare?

Fully funded.

Gun grabs, property seizures, EPA oppression, IRS as a weapon – FULLY FUNDED.

ALL OF IT PASSED in the middle of the night  by McConnell’s Senate – AFTER John Boehner orchestrated the House deal in secret with Obama himself.

There IS NO representation in Washington unless you are a Marxist/Socialist.

This ‘budget’ dooms our future and what is left of our nation to the tune of ADDING 20 TRILLION DOLLARS to the debt.  There is not enough wealth on the entire planet to cover that – and the frightening truth is that the actual entire debt, including the unfunded mandates from Washington is actually 120 TRILLION DOLLARS.

Our economy and our nation will collapse like the World Trade Center on 9-11 under that weight.

By design.  Which is why the Oligarchy passes these omnibus spending bills in the middle of the night without a single “representative” reading what they are voting on.

Senate Passes Budget Deal At 3 AM – Sends To Obama

In the new standard of late-night bill-passing sessions, the Senate gave final approval to a ridiculous behemoth budget that funds Obama’s entire agenda with limitless spending early Friday, sending it to President Barack Obama to sign and fund the rest of his fundamental transformation of America into a Soviet-style hellhole.

The final vote on passage was 64-35, as Mitch McConnell’s Republican oligarchs joined forces with Democrat Marxist Fascists over the objections of GOP presidential candidates Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, and Marco Rubio, all of whom voted against the deal. The bill is marketed by the Praetorian Pravda media as averting a debt default, avoiding a partial government shutdown and setting unlimited spending priorities to the tune of over two TRILLION dollars for the next two years.  The deal handcuffs a new congress and a new president and forces them to continue funding Obama’s entire agenda – even after he supposedly leaves office.

Earlier in Friday’s session, the Senate voted 63-35 to end debate on the measure. The vote to approve the bill was taken just after 3 a.m. EDT.

Republican leadership on orders from the Ruling Class under Boehner made secret deals with Obama because they were intent on steering Congress away from their duty to use the power of the purse to restrain a lawless executive branch. Former Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, felt a particular urgency days before leaving Congress, to screw the American taxpayer and subject our children and grandchildren to a bleak future, while lawmakers look ahead to presidential and congressional shell-game elections next year.

Ted Cruz lays out the scam the Oligarchy has perpetrated upon us all last night.

Short clips of Cruz, Paul and Rubio from Fox:

Ted Cruz lays out the entire shell-game of corruption the Ruling Class oligarchy has perpetrated in this incredible betrayal of the American people and the Constitution:

Yes, You Better Believe It – Obama IS Coming For Your Guns

DrudgeObamaGuns

Obama said in Chicago Tuesday “I’m not going to “take everyone’s guns away”, which given his history – means he is about to employ policies to do just that.

History lesson of statements His Heinous Obama has made and what transpired shortly after he made those statements:

“I’m not gonna force you to buy health insurance”.

He did.

“I’m not gonna penalize you for not buying health insurance”.

He did.

“I’m not gonna take away your health insurance”.

He did.

“I’m not gonna take away your doctor”.

He did.

“I’m not gonna unilaterally rewrite immigration law”.

He did.

“I’m not gonna unilaterally ignore immigration law”.

He did.

And this past Tuesday he says “I’m not gonna take away our guns”.

You better believe he will.  And soon.

He always makes these statements, right before he employs a policy or action to do exactly aha the says he is not.

Breitbart’s John Nolte shares the proof.

obama-gun-confiscation

WHEN OBAMA SAYS HE WON’T TAKE YOUR GUNS, HISTORY PROVES HE’S LYING

President Barack Obama is a serial-liar of the first order. That is not partisanship talking, that is history and science. And when Obama says, as he did Tuesday in Chicago, I’m not going to “take everyone’s guns away,” that means he’s coming for them.

Did I mention Barack Obama is a liar? Not only is Obama a liar, this “not gunna-gunna” ploy is a tactic the President has effectively used many times before. It’s a two-pronged assault that requires the cooperation of his DC Media allies.

  1. By lying and saying he’s “not gunna,” Obama lulls his opponents into a false sense of security.
  2. By lying and saying he’s “not gunna,” it allows Obama’s DC Media allies to attack as liars and extremists those who say Obama will take their guns.

Let’s look at the science, shall we?

 

I’m Not Gunna Force People To Buy Health Insurance

Obama’s “not gunna” lies started during the 2008 presidential campaign when he said he was “not gunna” force people to buy health insurance. Here’s video of a 2008 debatebetween Obama and Hillary Clinton where he criticizes, not just the mandate in her health care plan that forces people to purchase health insurance, but the fact that they are fined and therefore “worse off” if they don’t purchase insurance.

We don’t want to put on adults a situation where we are mandating them to purchase insurance and if the subsidies are inadequate the burden is on them and they will be penalized, and this is exactly what Senator Clinton’s plan does  … If healthcare is affordable you don’t need a mandate.

Except, from the mandate to the penalty, this is exactly what ObamaCare does.

I’m Not Gunna Take Away Your Health Insurance or Your Doctor

While he was trying to shove ObamaCare into law in 2009 and win re-election in 2012, dozens of times Obama said, I’m “not gunna” take away your health insurance and I’m “not gunna” take away your doctor.

Obama was lying.

Obama knew he was lying.

The DC Media knew he was lying.

And those of us who called out his lie were accused of racism by Obama and the DC Media.

By the time the fallout hit, millions and millions of people lost their insurance, and with it, their doctors.

The lie, and the DC Media’s willing complicity in covering up the lie, was necessary to get the monstrosity passed. Had the president told the truth, or the DC Media exposed what they knew was the truth, ObamaCare never would have passed.

I’m Not Gunna Sign Executive Orders Changing Immigration Law

More than 20 times President Obama reassured Americans he would not override Congress as a means to change or ignore immigration laws. Again and again, Obama told us he would not and could not unilaterally ignore or rewrite these laws.

He lied.

I’m Not Gunna Take Away Your Guns

“I believe in the Second Amendment. I believe in the people’s lawful right to bear arms. I will not take your shotgun away. I will not take your rifle away. I won’t take your handgun away.” — Then-Senator Obama, September 9, 2008.  

While running for president, Obama was desperate to wrist-flick away the gun issue knowing it could hurt him in the general election.

In 2008, Obama also voted in favor of an amendment that would prohibit the confiscation of guns, even during a national emergency.

This was all a lie.

Twice this year, although the DC Media ignores this in order to protect him, Obama has said that he backs Australia’s gun laws, the spine of which is outright confiscation. Democrats and the DC Media always lie about Australia’s government-mandated confiscation by couching it as a buyback program — which it most certainly was not. Sure, the Australian government paid people for their guns but they were forced to turn them in. A buyback program is voluntary.

In June of 2014, Obama praised the Australia law:

In June of 2015, Obama again praised the Australia law.

In summation, Obama said…

I’m not gunna force you to buy health insurance. He did.

I’m not gunna penalize you for not buying health insurance. He did.

I’m not gunna take away your health insurance. He did.

I’m not gunna take away your doctor. He did.

I’m not gunna unilaterally rewrite immigration law. He did.

I’m not gunna unilaterally ignore immigration law. He did.

And now we’re supposed to trust him when he says he’s not gunna take away our guns.

P.S. The DC Media is also covering up Hillary’s endorsement of Australia’s gun laws.

Ted Cruz Proves Despicable Mitch McConnell Is Another Harry Reid Liar

McConnellShooting-Conservatives

Cruz exposes comments on the Senate floor that McConnell made to Republican senators in a private lunch, showing that McConnell lied to his entire conference.

That McConnell lies is not news.  He is the LEADER of the Ruling Class Establishment GOP; the arch LIAR of the betray the Constitution party by surrendering their power to Obama.  McConnell has lied to Americans while passing bills drafted in secret and shutting down any possible opposition to their treason.

I’m reposting this news because the entire mainstream media propaganda apparatus (Including Fox News) has refused to cover this story.

SENATE FLOOR: TED CRUZ EXPLODES ON MITCH MCCONNELL, SAYS HE LIED TO ENTIRE REPUBLICAN CONFERENCE

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) a 2016 GOP presidential candidate, delivered a brutal speech bashing his own party’s leadership’s failures on the Senate floor on Friday morning after Majority Leader
Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) moved forward with a plot to reauthorize the Export Import Bank.

In the speech, Cruz says—calling him out personally—McConnell lied to the entire Republican conference. Cruz’s speech stemmed from how McConnell—despite telling the entire GOP conference there was no such secret deal with the Democrats during the Obamatrade process to later bring up Ex-Im reauthorization—actually did cut a deal with Democrats, specifically

“Today is a sad day for this institution,” Cruz said on the floor.

The Senate operates based on trust. Whether we are Democrats or Republicans, these 100 Senators have to be able to trust that when a Senator sys something, he or she will do it. Even if we disagree on substance, that we don’t lie to each other. What we just witnessed this morning is profoundly disappointing.

Cruz then proceeded to expose comments McConnell made to Republican senators in a private lunch, showing that McConnell lied to his entire conference. The comments Cruz talks about were around the time of the first Obamatrade votes in the Senate, when McConnell told Republicans—something that has since been proven to be untrue—that there was no deal with Democrats to vote on Ex-Im later in exchange for the necessary votes to pass Obamatrade.

Cruz voted for Obamatrade’s Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) the first go-around in the Senate based on McConnell’s word—and he famously turned against the fast-track trade authority later.

“I want to describe the context of two preceding discussions. A number of weeks ago when this Senate was considering Trade Promotion Authority, a group of Senators gathered on this floor and blocked TPA for many minutes because they were pressing for the Export-Import Bank,” Cruz said.

They huddled on this floor and negotiated a deal in front of C-SPAN, in front of the world. Then when they had their deal, TPA had the votes to pass. Shortly thereafter, we had a Senate Republican lunch where I stood up and I asked the Majority Leader very directly what was the deal that was just on TPA and was there a deal for the Export-Import Bank. It was a direct question. I asked the Majority Leader in front of all the Republican senators. The Majority Leader was visibly angry with me that I would ask such a question, and the Majority Leader looked at me and said there is no deal.

Cruz noted that McConnell made the promise that “there is no deal” three times in public and then again in a private discussion with him and  Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT)

 “There is no deal. Like St. Peter, he repeated it three times,” Cruz said.

He said the only thing I told the proponents of the Export-Import Bank is like any other Senator in this body, they could offer any amendment they liked on any amendable vehicle, but I gave them nothing. There is no deal. He was emphatic. And he was repeated. Following that Republican discussion, Sen. Mike Lee and I approached the Majority Leader afterwards in which he emphasized again there is no deal, I will do nothing, I oppose the Export-Import Bank. All I said is they can offer an amendment like any Senator can to any bill. Madam President, I went back to my office and I sat and had a long discussion with my staff.

In those discussions, Cruz said his staff told him that McConnell was lying to him. But he couldn’t believe right off the bat that the Senate GOP majority leader would lie like that to his face or to the faces of all other GOP senators.

“My staff told that afternoon he’s lying to you,” Cruz said.

That’s what my staff said. We have been around the Senate a long time. He is not telling you the truth. And what I told my staff that afternoon, I said well, I don’t know if that’s the case or not, but I don’t see how when the Majority Leader looks me in the eyes and makes an explicit promise — and by the way, looks in the eyes of every other Republican Senator and says that to every other Republican Senator, I don’t see how I cannot take him at his word when he makes an explicit promise. As a result, I cast my vote in May in support of TPA because I support free trade and I felt I had no choice but to assume that when the Majority Leader spoke to 54 Republican Senators and made an explicit promise that he wasn’t lying to us. Well, as TPA moved on, as it went to the House, it became abundantly clear, there was a deal. There was a deal in the House for the Export-Import Bank. And so the second time TPA came up, I voted ‘no’ because of that corrupt deal.

From there, Cruz proceeded to further berate McConnell on more than just the Ex-Im Bank secret deal.

“Let me tell you a second element of the background context,” Cruz said.

A number of weeks ago when we were debating the Corker-Cardin bill, the Iran Review Act, there were a number of amendments that senators had filed. I filed an amendment that will actually put teeth in the Iran Review Act by requiring affirmative congressional approval before sanctions on Iran could be lifted. Other senators filed very good amendments. 

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) filed an amendment calling for Iran to recognize Israel’s right to exist as a Jewish State before sanctions could be lifted. Our friends on the Democratic side of the aisle did not want to vote on that amendment. And, in response, the Majority Leader cut off all amendments. Madam President, I sat in the Majority Leader’s office, and I urged the Majority Leader invoke cloture on Sen. Rubio’s amendment calling on Iran to recognize Israel’s right to exist and setting that as a precondition of any lifting of sanctions. I argued vociferously with the Majority Leader that if the Democrats were so opposed to voting on that amendment, that was all the more reason because it was important substantively, and the Majority Leader said no, he would not do so, that invoking cloture on an amendment was an extraordinary step, and he wouldn’t do so. So he cut off off every amendment. He filled the tree and terrace.

Cruz then noted the hypocrisy where now Senate Minority Leader

Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) called out McConnell for engaging in the same tactic he engaged so many times to close down Senate debate.

“It was striking a minute ago seeing the Democratic Leader Harry Reid calling out the Majority Leader for filling the tree, for engaging in the same procedural abuse that railroaded—that Harry Reid did over and over and over again in this body,” Cruz said.

Now the Republican Leader is behaving like the senior senator from Nevada. What we just saw was not, Madam President, what the Majority Leader told you and me and every other Republican senator. What we just saw was not that the proponents of the Ex-Im Bank, like anyone else, could stand up and offer any amendment they’d like on any issue. What the Majority Leader just did is, number one, he called up that amendment. He called it up himself. Why does that matter? Because as Majority Leader he has priority of recognition. When he calls up an amendment, no one can stop him. He didn’t just call it up. He filled the tree, just like Harry Reid, he filled the tree, blocking everyone else’s amendments. By the way, I agree with Senator Reid when he said the Obamacare amendment is a cynical amendment. Of course it is. It is empty showmanship.

Cruz then hammered GOP leadership for putting forward nothing more than a show vote—a meaningless vote—on repealing Obamacare.

“We’ll have a vote on repealing Obamacare,” Cruz said.

The Republicans will all vote “Yes.” The Democrats will all vote “no.” It will be at a 60-vote threshold. It will fail. It will be an exercise in meaningless political theater. Mind you when we actually had a fight to stop Obamacare and defund it, the Majority Leader was opposed. But an empty showboat, that is a good way to distract from what’s going on. There is a profound disappointment among the American people because we keep winning elections and then we keep getting leaders who don’t do anything they promised. The American people were told if only we have a Republican Majority, things will be different. Well, in 2010, the American people showed up in enormous numbers and we got a Republican majority in the House. And very little changed. Then the American people were told, you know, the problem is the Senate. If only we get a Republican majority in the Senate and retire Harry Reid as Majority Leader, then things will be different. Well, in 2014, the American people rose up in enormous numbers, voted to do exactly that. We’ve had a Republican majority in both Houses of Congress now for about six months. What was that majority done?

Cruz then proceeded to detail how the 2010 and 2014 elections handing the GOP majorities in the House then Senate didn’t matter one bit at all.

“First thing we did, in December, is we came back and passed a $1 trillion Cromnibus plan filled with pork and corporate welfare,” Cruz said.

That was the very first thing we did. Then this Republican majority voted to fund Obamacare, voted to fund President Obama’s unconstitutional executive amnesty. And then leadership rammed through the confirmation of Loretta Lynch as Attorney General. Madam President, which of those decisions would be one iota different if Harry Reid were still Majority Leader? Not a one. Not a one. This Senate operates exactly the same. The same priorities. And let me tell you why. It’s not that this majority doesn’t get things done. It does get things done. But it listens to one and only one voice. That is the voice of the Washington cartel, of the lobbyists on K Street, of the big money and big corporations. You know, if you go to the American people and ask is reauthorizing the Ex-Im Bank a priority for you, the standard response for most of them would be ‘the what?’ They don’t even know what this is. Let me tell you what this is. It is an egregious example of corporate welfare. It is the American taxpayers being on the dime for hundreds of billions of dollars in loan guarantees given out to a handful of giant corporations. It is a classic example of cronyism and corporate welfare. And by the way, among others you know one person who had the clarity of thought on that?

Cruz then noted how when Obama was in the Senate, he was opposed to the Ex-Im Bank—and then proceeded to further detail how the Ex-Im Bank is crony capitalism—before he turned his fire on McConnell again.

“Madam President, it saddens me to say this,” Cruz said.

I sat in my office, I told my staff the Majority Leader looked me in the eye and looked 54 Republicans in the eye. I cannot believe he would tell a flat-out lie, and I voted based on those assurances that he made to each and every one of us. What we just saw today was an absolute demonstration that not only what he told every Republican Senator, but what he told the press over and over and over again was a simple lie. This institution should not operate at the beck and call of lobbyists in Washington. This institution, the Majority and Minority Leader arm in arm again, should not team up against the American taxpayers. It’s why our children are going bankrupt. Now we’re facing an enormous threat with this Iran deal, a nuclear Iran poses the greatest national security threat tot his country.”

Cruz laid out next how McConnell wouldn’t take the steps he took to force the crony capitalist Ex-Im Bank through the Senate to protect the nation of Israel from President Obama’s deal with Iran.

And yet the Majority Leader refused to do what he just did for the Export Import Bank on Iran, refused to invoke cloture,” Cruz said. “That was an extraordinary step. Madam President, if he was telling us the truth when he said there was no deal, why would he do what he just did? Well, we now know that when the Majority Leader looks us in the eyes and makes an explicit commitment that he is willing to say things that he knows are false. That has consequences for how this body operates. If you or I cannot trust what the Majority Leader tells us, that will have consequences on other legislation as well on how this institution operates.

Cruz said the U.S. Senate, in addition to actually stopping the Iran deal, should be focused on matters like defunding Planned Parenthood.

“There are a host of amendments that the American people are focused on, things like defunding Planned Parenthood after the gruesome video,” Cruz said.

The Majority Leader doesn’t want to vote on that. That’s actually something the American people are focused on. He brought up his Obamacare amendment as a smokescreen because it’s intended to fail. But you know what he didn’t bring up is my amendment to end the congressional exemption from Obamacare, the corrupt deal that Harry Reid made with Obama. We’ve got to live under the same rules as everybody else. The Majority Leader doesn’t want to vote on that because he doesn’t want to end the cronyism for members of Congress any more than end the cronyism for giant corporations who enrich themselves at the expense of the American people. There are a host of priorities that the voters who elected you and me. Madam President, I would ask you to think about when you were running for the Senate not too long ago. Do you recall any of your constituents ever saying we want the Export-Import bank? No. They want other things. They have other priorities, but those are not the priorities of Republican leadership. Sadly today we have government of the lobbyists, by the lobbyists, and for the lobbyists. That is not how the United States Senate is supposed to operate. A far more important amendment than bringing back this corporate welfare and cronyism is my amendment that provides that sanctions on Iran cannot be lifted unless and until Iran does two things. Number one, it recognizes Israel’s right to exist as a Jewish state. And number two, it releases the four American hostages languishing in Iranian prisons. That is a far more important issue than enriching some more lobbyists on K Street and getting a few more campaign contributions. That’s what we should be voting on.

McConnell’s office did not respond to a request for comment in response to Cruz’s speech.

SCOTUS CONFIRMS: Constitution Is Irrelevant. Rule Of Law Is Dead. Ruling Class Oligarchy Is The Power.

Constitution-burning

In the wake of the Rulings upholding ObamaCare, Housing and instituting Homosexual Marriage as a right- the last vestige of Constitutional limits on government have been officially swept away.

And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. – John 3:19

We have no Constitution. We have no rule of law.

We only have a Dictatorship – supported by an Oligarchy of Ruling Class nobles who see us as rabble needing to be subjugated and/or exterminated.

As the Dissent points out: “Words no longer have meaning”- and if words have no meaning in the law, then LAW itself has no meaning outside of whatever the Dictator-In-Chief and his Ruling Class says it means.  

As Chief Justice Roberts wrote in the majority opinion: “Congress passed the Affordable Care Act to improve health insurance markets, not to destroy them,” – Roberts said the wording of ObamaCare was ambiguous but decided the intent of Congress was clear and therefore he rewrote the law because,”[Congress] always had the intention of subsidies being provided nationwide”.

So we now have incontrovertible proof that the Supreme Court has made itself the final arbiter of what decrees and “laws” are ‘law’ and have inserted themselves into being the Confirmers of what politics are “Lawful” and what politics and ideologies are ‘UnConstitutional” meaning – unlawful.

So we have a dictatorship that confirms The Fuhrer’s and the Politburo’s political agendas.

Lord-King-Obama

Justice Antonin Scalia made evident what these rulings actually mean in his scathing dissent:

  1. “Words no longer have meaning if an Exchange that is not established by a State is ‘established by the State.’” 

  2. “Under all the usual rules of interpretation, in short, the Government should lose this case. But normal rules of interpretation seem always to yield to the overriding principle of the present Court: The Affordable Care Act must be saved.” 

  3. “And the cases will publish forever the discouraging truth that the Supreme Court of the United States favors some laws over others, and is prepared to do whatever it takes to uphold and assist its favorites.”

So, if you are honest and brave enough to accept the truth: have a Dictatorship – run by a Marxist and Socialist Oligarchy in all 3 branches – who have ceded power to a destructive America-hating madman in the Executive who is stoking a race war while ‘fundamentally transforming the nation into a Communist hell-hole.

Since todays ‘laws’ are written in massive thousand page behemoths and passed in secret with no one in the American public knowing what the Oligarchy is crafting, it is self-evident that the Constitution no longer exists in practicality beyond lip service.

When challenged on the Constitutional merits, we now see that diktat from the Oligarchy will now be upheld over the rule of law.  Today it’s government-run healthcare. By Monday, it will be Homosexuality rammed down all our throats with no difference between civil unions and traditional marriage while sacred institutions who refuse to marry same sex couples will be charged with crimes.

Every institution that was American and cultural is being dismantled, banned, shunned and destroyed before our eyes.

During Mao Zedong’s Cultural Revolution, the Chinese were encouraged to destroy the “Four Olds”—old customs, old habits, old culture, and old thinking.  Given the Ruling Class insane push to remove all symbols of the Confederacy and Southern Culture from the country in the last week – the fact is what we see playing out before is the removal of our foundations and heritage so that removing the Constitution is accepted and applauded by the masses.

ObaMao2

So what do we do now?

Here is the solution – which our Forebears implemented when they too found themselves under tyrannical dictatorship:

DO NOT COMPLY.

REFUSE.

RESIST.

Yes, this will make you a target.

Yes, you will be punished.

Yes, they will make an example out of you.

Yes, they will impoverish you, seize you, imprison you and even KILL YOU.

So the question you have to ask yourself is this:  Do you love liberty enough to risk your lives, your fortunes and your sacred honor?  Or will going along to keep ourselves fed and sheltered and provided for by a Beast be more important to us?

Please re-read our duty as enshrined in the Declaration of Independence:

But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.
