Mike Lee deserves far more respect and support than he currently gets from the PRL (Progressive Republican Leadership). He is one of the most measured men in the Senate. He is thoughtful. He is prudent. He is a superb listener. He is a scholar of the United States Constitution. He has a great capacity to act with decisiveness and in wisdom. He is a man never to be conquered. And then there are others, like Mike Lee, who are never to be conquered.
Jim DeMint is one of those men and he founded the Conservative Partnership Institute to help We, the People, help those in Washington, D.C. who are trying to #DrainTheSwamp.
Jenny Beth Martin, founder of the Tea Party Patriots, is a woman never to be conquered. She continues to press the PRL to keep their promises.
Dennis Prager is doing an amazing work through his Prager University online videos.
Janine Turner’s Constituting America is a fabulous organization for she, like Mr. Prager and Mr. DeMint understand the foundational education process necessary to bring up the next generation of Conservative Guardians for our Nation.
Larry Arn of Hillsdale College was one of the first to initiate free online classes to help enlighten the masses about our divinely inspired Constitution. His programs have inspired many fine young people to enter into the political realms, armed with knowledge well steeped in original thoughts from the framers of our government.
This list is not an exhaustive one. It is one where I choose to place my time and or money in support of men and women never to be conquered.
And one more thing. Be sure to watch THE SWAMP, Episodes 1 – 3.
“Take My May 2018 Constituent Survey!”
Here is the screenshot of the survey.
Why? Why? Why should I take that survey?
Seriously. What are you going to do with the answers from this Two Question survey?
How about you get a real survey that matters and then explain your positions on the following questions:
- Are you hoping to
- have an Amnesty Deal in place?
- Will you sign on to an Amnesty Deal, the discharge petition for H.Res. 774?
- Do you think you should vote against Amnesty for Illegal Immigrants?
- What action do you think Congress should take regarding Sanctuary Cities?
- Do you support Obamacare?
- Will you FULL REPEAL Obamacare?
- Will you replace Obamacare with a truly FREE MARKET?
- What are you doing to get government bureaucrats out of Healthcare?
- Will you vote to give all unused tax dollars back to the taxpayers?
- Do you support unused tax dollars staying in a congressional slush fund?
- Will you, before the midterm election, vote for a $15.4 billion rescissions package?
- Do you agree that bureaucrats have excessive rule making authority?
- Do you believe you, and your fellow congressional colleagues, have the obligation and reposnsibility to check and balance excessive rule making bureaucrats from oppressing people ?
If you have an opinion on North Korea, more power to you. If you want to know what other people think, then ask questions about that which you have power to vote on and legislate for the sake of Conservative/Libertarians.
It would be really lovely if you would pick a side and then frame the debate with your thoughts so we know what you think.
I read this piece posted on Glenn Beck the other day:
So I tweeted the afore mentioned article link to Marco Rubio’s new Chief of Staff, Mike Needham, (an acquaintance of mine) and he responded with this article:
The first article has several links in it. I have briefly checked out a couple of them, for I have not yet had time to peruse them because words mean something and it is important to go through them to discover what is is in the article.
Mike Lee’s name was invoked in the second article. Knowing what Senator Lee is committed to in a Conservative Reform Agenda is easy to track online for consistency in principles.
“…while it is important to oppose the policies of an overreaching and unsustainable federal government, we must also make a positive case for conservative ideas; ideas that create a space for a conservative vision of society to flourish.”
~ Senator Mike Lee
The middle road. It is where the Chicken laid one on the line after crossing the road halfway.
The middle road. It reminds me of the Clarence Thomas quote:
“Today, there is much talk about moderation. It reminds me of a former colleague of mine at the EEOC [Equal Employment Opportunity Commission] who often joked that he was a ‘gun-toting moderate’ – a curiously oxymoronic perspective. Just think of that: dying over half a loaf.”
There is a big difference between a middle road and the middle of the road. There is also a big difference between taking a wrong road and continuing down the wrong road opposed to taking the right middle road that leads you to your destination, the common good for life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
Conservativism is what it is. Everything else is not.
Jack Murphy wrote a piece titled Veterans, not even war heroes, are as sacred as Americans try to pretend they are. As a military brat/spouse of a lifetime to include many, many years, it is easy to understand Jack’s feelings toward John McCain and Thomas McInerney. I have my own issues with #HeroWorship regardless of the job a person holds, especially when it comes to politics, see: The Candidate: Scrutinize every Military Veteran and ask tough, pointed questions.
Additional thoughts about McCain from the late, David H. Hackworth in January 2000:
In today’s current political climate there is a revival of sorts going on in the Conservative movement. It reminds me of the Second Great Awakening, where churches popped up on every corner clamoring for members to be baptized in a particular congregation. So when a new friend asked me about my thoughts on where to participate and donate to help the conservative vision it seemed like posting here was a good place to start.
Often I give to the Senate Conservatives Fund (SCF) Candidates directly: https://www.senateconservatives.com/races I know SCF vets those they endorse. If a candidate lies to them and votes contrary to conservative principles, they revoke support for that candidate. That is why I check to see who’s who and to support those candidates in particular. Jim DeMint started SCF. It is a consistently conservative organization.
Currently I am donating to Conservative Partnership Institute (CPI) because it seems like Jim DeMint understands what needs to be done. I do so waiting to see what good he is bringing about. He is working to unite an army of activists in supporting honorable men and women. As CPI bears good fruit, I will be increasing that donation.
As a Heritage Action Sentinel, my donations there began slowly and to be honest, my donation is embarrassingly minimal.
By subscribing to Glenn Beck’s The Blaze and Mark Levin’s CRTV, I feel like my time and money is well spent being well educated about the things that matter most. I really believe in Glenn’s vision and am looking forward to increasing donations to his company, MercuryOne.org.
A few years ago I decided to check myself from getting sucked into funding every good cause. There are many wonderful causes, groups, and sincere people doing marvelous things. It was overwhelming. Therefore, I prayerfully made a conscious decision to reduce and simplify my life, and to know where to best donate. In order to focus on what matters most to me, I choose to give more money to a few organizations.
Hope these thoughts are helpful.
Wow. When I hit that button and deactivated Facebook I sighed in joy and relief. Immediately it felt like it was a great decision to take time off of it for a season.
My new focus in the interim is to keep up with the Conservative Partnership Institute (CPI) founded by the Honorable Jim DeMint. I am really excited about CPI’s vested interest in supporting true Conservative ideas. Even more so, I am thrilled at how CPI plans to work with members of Congress and Conservative organizations to work together on pressing forward with those ideas.
If you have not yet donated to CPI then you are hereby personally invited to support the cause. Click here to donate online or you can download a copy of the donor form to send in a check.
Several weeks ago I thought about going off Facebook. Then the scandal hit. Well, it actually has been hitting for years, it just became blatantly obvious to millions as it got picked up in the news.
So by Tuesday midmorning I will take a sabbatical from my Facebook. You can find me here, Instagram, and on Twitter. Well, Twitter for a while longer. I am thinking about going off it too.
Cheerio until next time.
