Senator Mike Lee Turns the Page on the Obama Era

Published

on

Senator Mike Lee (R-UT) was elected to represent Utah in the Senate in the Tea Party Revolution a few years ago that saw conservatives win upset victories across the country. Lee’s victory was particularly impressive in that he was able to defeat an incumbent Republican in a primary race, something that hardly ever happens, before going on to handily defeat his Democrat opponent. Since his election to the Senate in 2011, Lee has become the driving philosophical force behind the conservative wing of the Congress. He has partnered with Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, Marco Rubio and others on various legislative plans and ideas. While he has not become as well known among voters, he has become equally as influential (if not more so) in Washington, DC. If these young conservatives are the heart and soul of today’s conservative movement, then Mike Lee is the brain.

Which makes a recent essay that Senator Lee wrote a must read. Lee posted the missive to his Facebook page, calling for his friends, followers and constituents to help “turn the page” on the Obama era.

President Obama faced a tough task when he delivered his final State of the Union this week.

As a lame duck president, he wanted to spend the evening touting his administration’s record and setting his place in history. But the president also knew that, in living rooms across the country, his starry-eyed message would fall on deaf ears.

The simple reality is that, despite recent job growth, wages for most Americans remain flat, the labor participation rate is near record lows, and the unemployment rate for those without a college degree is twice as high as it is for those with a degree. So it should come as no surprise that the vast majority of Americans do not like the direction the country is headed. Look at any recent poll and you’ll see that between two-thirds and three-quarters of respondents are dissatisfied with the way things are going.

President Obama reads these polls too. He knows the American people are unhappy, or, as he put it on Tuesday, “a lot of Americans feel anxious.”

He tried to assuage these fears by blaming technology and trade for a changing economy where “more and more wealth is concentrated at the very top.”

Mike-LeeAnd it is true. Much of the wealth created in the Obama era has gone to an elite few. And far too many Americans have not shared in our growing economy.

President Obama’s answers to these problems is to double down on the most harmful, aspects of his economic agenda that helped produce this skewed recovery.

He wants more government control of the energy, education, and technology sectors. He wants a federal government that dictates what Americans are paid and when they can take time off. He wants higher taxes on businesses that operate overseas.

We’ve seen this movie before – in fact, we’re living through it right now – and we know it doesn’t end well.

But there is a better way. Instead of concentrating power in the hands of Washington elites, we can return it to the American people. Let’s end the existing higher education oligopoly by allowing states to accredit their own institutions of higher learning.

Let’s give parents, not Washington bureaucrats, the power to choose where their federal education dollars are spent and where to send their kids to school.

Let’s free states from the federal labor and environmental red tape that drive up the cost of infrastructure projects, so they can build the transportation systems their communities need at the right price.

Let’s give employees and employers greater freedom to determine how long and when they work.

Let’s allow judges to roll back excessive mandatory minimum sentences that take far too many fathers away from at-risk communities.

And let’s empower families by letting them keep more of their hard-earned paychecks.

Republicans have been blessed with a strong field of presidential candidates, many of whom support these reforms. The American people will be much better off if the next State of the Union comes from one of them.

 

Well said.

Instead of wringing our hands, gnashing our teeth and worrying about the inconsequential issues in the media, conservatives should be working towards the 2016 election with excitement and happiness. We are about to end the most disastrous presidential era of the last century, and we have the unique opportunity of ushering in bold, new conservative leadership! Now is the time for action, not for worry! Let us work together and close the book on the Obama era.

Why Is The NRCC Not Supporting Laura Loomer’s Campaign?

Published

on

Laura Loomer is the modern-day Joan of Arc withstanding the onslaught delivered by demonic forces of leftist communists.  Loomer, a heroine general akin to La Pucelle d’Orléans as many called Joan of Arc, possesses an army of loyal followers who believe in her message and purpose.

It is a given that Loomer is the most censored woman alive worldwide, yet, she remains.   Banned on every social media and payment platform the left and even some scumbags on the right have tried to stop her La Pucelle d’Orléans congressional movement.  Truly, this is what her candidacy represents and the left, and some on the right are scared to death of Loomer.  Why you ask?  The answer is easy.  She has no bad habits in which to control her and her soul is as white as new snow.

Why Is The NRCC Not Supporting Laura Loomer’s Campaign?

Loomer’s recent poll numbers are superior to 90% of all Republican congressional candidates.  Yet, the NRCC is silent.  Why would the NRCC turn a blind eye to this future congressional powerhouse?  It is no secret Loomer has proven over time she is with the people and not the politicians.  Physically enforcing her movement in the faces of the left and putting herself in harm’s way while the NRCC executives sit behind a desk scratching their heads and backsides.

Guts are what it takes in this world unless you are owned by your bad habits.  There are many in Washington, DC that are completely owned due to those bad habits.  Whether it be drugs, boy lovers’, brained washed masonic clowns, or the Luciferian “angle of light” con-artists. It makes no difference.  They are owned.

It is an old story in a new age as the clock tick-tocks toward a full rebellion here and abroad.  In a world gone completely mad, it is always a blessing to have sparks of true light to let us know Yahuah is still in control.  Loomer is light in the sea of darkness and will be a staunch ally of President Donald J. Trump.

Biden Unity Task Force Recommendations Copy And Paste From Comrade Bernie

Published

on

By

Former VP Joe Biden’s campaign released its much-anticipated results from the Biden-Bernie Sanders Unity Task Forces.

The 110-page document lays out policy recommendations for the former vice president and includes language for the Democratic platform ahead of the Democratic Convention next month.

Twitchy:

As Twitchy reported earlier, the Biden-Sanders Unity Task Force issued its recommended guidance for the DNC to follow this election cycle, and that included eliminating anything that would allegedly pull needed resources from public schools, including private charter schools and school vouchers. No surprise there, really.

GOP rapid response director Steve Guest got his hands on Joe Biden’s Unity Task Force recommendations and found that Biden pulls a lot — word-for-word — from Bernie Sanders’ socialist platform.

We don’t even care if Sleepy Joe wants to copy somebody else’s homework — it’s whose homework we’re worried about. More

Singer Issues Vulgar Statement After His Song Was Played During Phoenix Trump Rally

The frontman for Panic! At The Disco, slammed the Trump campaign after Trump walked out to one of the band’s songs before his event in Phoenix, Arizona.

“Dear Trump Campaign, F— you. You’re not invited. Stop playing my song. No thanks, Brendon Urie, Panic! At The Disco & company,” he tweeted.

In a second tweet, Urie addressed “Everyone Else,” urging them to “vote this monster out” and added a link to help people get registered to vote.

“Dear Everyone Else, Donald Trump represents nothing we stand for. The highest hope we have is voting this monster out in November.”

“Donald Trump represents nothing we stand for. The highest hope we have is voting this monster out in November. ” Since the left stands for violence, assault, arson, murder, killing babies, beating up old people, stealing, destroying people’s homes, destroying businesses yeah, they’re correct. President Donald Trump stands for none of that.

WJ:

As the presidential election nears, celebrities across the nation have been voicing their disapproval for President Trump more than normal.

Last week, rock-and-roll legend Bruce Springsteen criticized Trump on his SiriusXM show, and most recently, pop-rock band Panic! at the Disco’s Brendon Urie voiced his opinions on the president.

Following Trump’s rally in Phoenix, Arizona, on Tuesday evening, Urie discovered that the band’s hit song “High Hopes” was played during the event.

Urie published a strongly-worded tweet aimed at Trump and his campaign that same night. More

Funny how these musicians sell-outs get mad when people buy the rights to use their music. Did Brendon Urie consider that this is the first time many Americans have ever heard of him?

Michael Flynn Victory: Federal Appeals Court Rules District Judge Must Drop Charges

A huge win for Michael Flynn!

Published

on

By

A federal appeals court today ordered a lower court to allow the case against former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn to be dismissed, as requested by the Justice Department.

The abrupt ending came in a 2-1 ruling and order from judges on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia.

BI:

A three-judge panel on the US Court of Appeals in Washington, DC, ordered the federal judge overseeing the case against Michael Flynn to dismiss the prosecution on Wednesday, marking another big twist for the most high-profile former Donald Trump official to face criminal charges from special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe.

In a 2-1 decision, the appeals court also overturned US District Judge Emmet Sullivan’s decision to bring in a retired federal judge and veteran prosecutor to argue against the Justice Department’s motion to dismiss Flynn’s case. Sullivan had scheduled a July 16 hearing to weigh whether or not to toss out the case against President Donald Trump’s former national security adviser.

The appeals court ruled that Sullivan does not have the authority to prolong Flynn’s prosecution or examine the Justice Department’s motivation for wanting to drop the case.

“This is not the unusual case where a more searching inquiry is justified,” Judge Neomi Rao, a Trump-appointed judge, wrote in the majority opinion. Rao was joined by Judge Karen LeCraft Henderson, an appointee of President George H.W. Bush.

The appeals court’s decision is a major victory for the former national security adviser, whose legal team has argued for months that the government  unfairly targeted him for political reasons. More

The DC Court of Appeals in NOT a bastion of conservatism. They did the right thing. Good for them. That is what Judge Emmet Sullivan gets for being an activist judge instead of an impartial one. Now it’s time to start the process to remove Judge Sullivan for abuse of power and political bias.
