Alexandria, VA — Senate Conservatives Action (SCA) announced a new 30-second TV ad Tuesday, which exposes U.S. Senator Mitch McConnell’s decision to help the Democrats fund Obamacare. The ad (“Kentucky”) will run statewide on broadcast and cable television from October 30 to November 12. The cost of the ad buy is $330,000.

“Mitch McConnell says he opposes Obamacare when he’s in Kentucky, but then he helps the Democrats fund Obamacare when he’s in Washington,” said SCA Executive Director Matt Hoskins. “Mitch McConnell has lost his way. It’s why more and more Kentucky Republicans are supporting Matt Bevin, a true conservative who will fight for their values.”

No more Good Old Boys Club. VOTE THEM OUT

A PHONY PRESIDENT

Isn’t it ironic that we have a phony President of the United States complaining about the “phony scandals” he claims were created by those who dare to oppose him and his dictatorial regime? There is nothing phony about the death of Border Patrol officer Brian Terry as a result of the Fast and Furious scandal and there is certainly nothing phony about the massacre of Ambassador Chris Stevens, Sean Smith, Tyrone Woods, and Glen Doherty by Islamist terrorists in Benghazi.

There is also nothing phony about a powerful federal agency, the IRS, using its power to intimidate conservative and Christian political organizations and donors in order to help Obama get reelected. Nor was the fact that the Attorney General of the United States lied while under oath to a congressional committee investigating the efforts of the DOJ to intimidate members of the news media. Yet, Obama, members of his corrupt administration, and many of his protectors in the mainstream media continue with the narrative. They remind me of the police officers at a crime scene telling the public to move on, there is nothing to see here.

The reality is there is much more to see than initially meets the eye. When I refer to Obama as a phony President I am not just talking about the many unanswered questions about this man’s background. We know less about him than any other President in recent history, and he appears to lie about things even when he is aware that most people know he is lying. However, he is a phony President primarily because he took an oath of office to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution and is doing exactly the opposite.

Regardless of where he was born, Obama is not an American because he does not believe in our Constitutional form of government, our free enterprise system, or even the basic freedoms guaranteed by the Bill of Rights. He routinely takes actions that are contrary to the authority given to him as President of the United States. He bypasses Congress by making laws through illegal Executive orders; he refuses to fulfill his Constitutional duty to enforce those laws passed by Congress, and he uses the departments of the Executive Branch to bully, intimidate, and silence American citizens and businesses. He also is trying to use the executive orders to take away our Second Amendment rights.

He encourages class warfare and racial hatred among Americans while steadfastly protecting and defending the radical elements of the Muslim brotherhood and other terrorist groups. Why do you think that no one has been arrested or killed in response to the Benghazi attack? We know who they are yet Obama refuses to act against them, probably for the same reason that he refuses to acknowledge murderous acts by Muslims as acts of terror.

When he was first running for President, Obama told an adoring crowd of union members that after he was elected he would reward his friends and punish his enemies. He has fulfilled his promise, but unfortunately his enemies seem to be all of the American people while his friends seem to be those that would destroy us. Remember, the Constitutional definition of treason includes giving aid and comfort to the enemies of the United States.

As a Constitutional lawyer I am well aware that the oath of office that I took as an army officer and that Obama and all members of his cabinet took is not supposed to be taken lightly, much less ignored. In fact, under federal law, the very act of advocating the overthrowing our Constitutional from of government is a criminal offense. Obama and his minions are doing much more than just advocating the overthrow, they are actually making it happen.

I have written several articles on this blog about Obama’s impeachable offenses, but I Am going one step further. What Obama is doing to this country and to its citizens is a violation of two federal statues 5U.S.C. 7311 and 18 U.S.C. 1918. In short, Obama is a criminal and so are many of those who work for him. They should be prosecuted and jailed.

This also means that no state, county, or city officials have any obligation to enforce illegal actions taken by Obama as President and no American citizen is required to obey them. It is time for all of us to “Stand Our Ground”.

LEGISLATIVE ALERT: THE IMMIGRATION BILL

I have reviewed the Immigration reform, S744, passed overwhelmingly by the United States Senate and it is a disaster. It is lengthy and confusing and in many ways reminds me of the final version of Obamacare that was passed by members of Congress who did not read it and had no idea what was in it. There is no mistaking that this is an amnesty bill. It provides a pathway to citizenship for individuals who are already on record as being willing to break our laws.
According to those supporting the legislation there are only eleven or twelve million of these illegal aliens (I refuse to use the politically correct term “undocumented workers”). However, if the law passes these illegals will be entitled to include their family members in the deal bringing the total to around thirty million. The law will also increase the number of legal immigrants allowed into this country from 1 million 1.5 million. This will happen when millions of American citizens are either unemployed or under employed.
This legislation will also be extraordinarily expensive for the already suffering American citizens. The burden of providing services and benefits for these individuals will primarily fall on state and local governments creating obligations they can’t afford to meet unless they increase taxes, reduce essential services to their residents, or a combination of both.
By the way, if you or I use forged or fraudulent documents or a stolen social security number we will be prosecuted and possibly go to jail. Under the provisions of S744 illegals who have committed these crimes can apply for and get a free pass.
Of course, the public is being told that one of the top priorities of the bill is border security. However, shades of Obamacare, there is a problem. The job of securing the border is left entirely in the hands of Obama and Janet Napolitano. They are given complete authority under the law to do anything they want or to continue doing virtually nothing at all. The DHS Secretary has left our border wide open to illegal aliens, drug traffickers, and terrorists, while assuring us that the border is better protected than ever before. S744 allows her to continue this pattern.
Make no mistake; this legislation is not about border security or even helping the so called poor oppressed illegals who just want to live the American dream. It is ultimately about adding millions of new Democratic voters to the rolls and turning red states like Texas and Arizona into blue states.
The Republicans in Congress who support this legislation seem to be under the illusion that many of the voters who went for Obama in 2008 and 2012 will be so grateful for the passage of this amnesty bill that they will rush to embrace Republican candidates at the polls in 2014 and thereafter. I understand that many of these same Republicans have purchased shares in the Brooklyn Bridge and beachfront property in the Florida everglades.
After what happened in the Senate we cannot take anything for granted in the House. Everyone must contact their representatives and insist that S744 be voted down. Cosmetic amendments will not be enough. Passage of this legislation will be much more than just another jewel in Obama’s weighty crown, it will mean the end of the USA as we know it.

The other day I said “Don’t get mad at the politicians, vote them out”. It’s difficult to not get mad at them when you realize all the things they do to us. I still say “VOTE THEM OUT“, they deserve to be voted out and “WE THE PEOPLE” deserve better than we have been getting.

The news is as bad or worse. The politicians lie and the news tells us the same story. I say, don’t get mad at the news, change the channel. They don’t deserve the ratings and we deserve the truth.

On Oct 17 2013 The Senate Conservatives Fund endorsed Chris McDaniel for Senate in Mississippi. Thad Cochran has been there for 24 years which makes him part of the problem. We need to replace as many of the incumbents as possible, especially ones who have been there for a long time.

Thad Cochran was one of the Republicans who voted to fund ObamaCare.

On Oct 18 2013 The Senate Conservatives Fund endorsed Matt Bevin for Senate in KY for 2014. Mitch McConnell has been there for 28 years. That makes him one of the problems as far as I am concerned. Anyone who has been there that long is probably more concerned with their re-election than they are with helping “WE THE PEOPLE”.

The SCF only endorses new candidates. They know what I am realizing, that anyone who stays in DC long enough will sell us out. They will never vote for term limits on themselves, so it is up to the voters to impose them at the voting booth. I was discouraged when I saw that Mike Huckabee endorsed Mitch McConnell. I assume he is only thinking “elect an established Republican”. It’s a shame because the established Republicans have sold their SOUL and we may forgive them but please don’t forget. The best thing we can do for them is VOTE THEM OUT so they can’t be corrupted more than they already have been. Take away the temptation.

The state pages are updated on an ongoing basis on the website.

Got this from caintv.com

Remember way back in the distant past – like, two weeks ago – when every Democrat on Capitol Hill was united in the determination that ObamaCare must not be changed, not be delayed, not be modified in any way, because to do so would be a dirty, nasty, right-wing Republican trick?

My. How things change. Dana Bash of CNN tweets that the 13 Democrat senators up for re-election in 2014 are suddenly singing a very different tune:

Well that’s nice of them, but these same 13 Democrats voted in 2009 to create this monstrosity in the first place. And don’t forget how that went down either. Remember that the Senate passed a version of the bill that everyone knew had major problems, taking advantage of its 60-seat, filibuster-proof majority to push the bill through. Then Senator Ted Kennedy died, and was replaced by Republican Scott Brown. That meant the Senate could no longer stop a filibuster, which it would need to do to pass any improved bill coming out of conference after the House passed its version. The only way at that point to pass ObamaCare to have the House pass the Senate bill with no changes, then abuse reconciliation rules to pass the fixes that were needed.

Abusing power is something Harry Reid is only too happy to do.

So every one of these 13 Democrats is responsible for creating the mess in which we now find ourselves. Their sudden conversion to the need for a delay is very nice, but it’s not enough. If you live in any one of these states, I urge you to vote for their Repubican opponents next year. If you do not, you could at least send the Republican candidates some money. There needs to be accountability for one’s part in creating a monster.

One other point about that: The conventional wisdom is that Republicans are silly for talking about ObamaCare repeal because they are in the minority and obviously don’t have the votes. I have a question about that: Why should Democrats not be expected to vote for repeal? ObamaCare is a disaster, and this becomes more obvious and more serious by the day. Why should it be considered acceptable that they put their party loyalty ahead of their obligation to the nation and refuse to fix this clusterfark?

Delay is not enough. And refusing to vote for repeal just because you are a Democrat is not acceptable. You are supposed to be an American first, so clean up the mess you helped to make, and stop waving your party label around as the reason you should not be expected to do so.

Here are the Dirty Baker’s Dozen:

  • Mark Begich (Alaska)
  • Mark Pryor (Arkansas)
  • Mark Udall (Colorado)
  • Mary Landrieu (Louisiana)
  • Al Franken (Minnesota)
  • Max “Trainwreck” Baucus (Montana)
  • Jeanne Shaheen (New Hampshire)
  • Tom Udall (New Mexico)
  • Kay Hagan (North Carolina)
  • Jeff Merkeley (Oregon)
  • Tim Johnson (South Dakota)
  • Mark Warner (Virginia)
  • Jay Rockefeller (West Virginia)

In addition to the Dirty Baker’s Dozen are Michigan’s Carl Levin and Iowa’s Tom Harkin, who performed long-overdue service to the nation by announcing their retirements. Whoever emerges from Republican primaries in Michigan and Iowa deserves major support.

On Oct 22 2013 The Senate Conservatives Fund Endorsed Ben Sasse R for the Senate in Nebraska. You can check out their endorsement at SFC Website They have all the information there. Ben Sasse website.

I trust The Senate Conservatives Fund because they only endorse new people, they never endorse incumbent’s. Now that is what I call term limits that I can live with. There are only a few politicians I have been willing to endorse more than one time. It seems that once they get elected they are not as conservative as they claimed.

I support Term Limits for politicians since the longer they are there the more chance there is they can be influenced.
I had a thought today that I could support in the meantime. Send them home so they are closer to the people they are supposed to be representing. Let them do their work over the internet (we have the technology, business uses it all the time), at least that way the NSA would have a record of it.
