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.
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.
The rise of a third party will probably increase the power to the Progressive Party for a long run. I agree with the premise we should vote for honest, upright candidates not for a party and we should point out the who’s who voting for the Progressive Party Platform.
Mick Mulvaney gave a great interview on Fox News, as far as questions were asked but apparently interest rates will spike or could if they do not keep the economy going.
So my question is: For the next two years do we really believe, with this betrayal by bundled bills, Congressional Leaders will take back excessive spending practices by the power of the purse when they pull these kind of stunts with excessive spending and bailouts?
The meager tax reform bill that was passed, the one the House GOP and Leaders keep patting themselves on their backs about, is a total joke with the passing of the current excessive spending in this two year bill.
Bottom line: Mike Lee plainly and succinctly explains it here:
Thank you Thomas Massie and Mike Lee for being men of consequence.
- It’s time for the Forgotten Man Caucus: Our freedom is not to be bartered away.
- What happened to ‘combat standards won’t be lowered’?
- LAUDABLE PURSUIT by Senator Mike Lee
Schumer is the problem. So is Mitch McCONnell. The problem is the Senate but Mike Lee with Thomas Massie keep trying to educate the public on the bottle neck process that is hurting the American people while oppressing the taxpayers. Like David Horowitz says: It’s the Senate, Stupid.
Today’s Reading List:

- Chuck Schumer Just Lost The Shutdown, Bigly
Representative Thomas Massie’s video is really fantastic on the Omnibus or Continuing Resolution. (Unfortunately it is not on YouTube otherwise I would embed it.)
Senator Mike Lee, author of Our Lost Constitution: The Willful Subversion of America’s Founding Document, has encouraged We, The People, to actively engage our Senators into doing the right thing. He knows that We, The People, must demand that they vote “on the 12 appropriations bills that the House has already passed.” He keeps asking, pleading for our help.
Engaging our politicians is the way it should be done. That is the way it must be done. Our unified voices insisting our politicians consistently press house and senate leadership for an Up-or-Down-vote on each of the 12 bills creates transparency. Then there is accountability. Then there are no more excuses so the House and Senate members can truly do the work We, the People, sent them there to do.
America is not a country for servile men and women. We not only have a right to be free, but a duty to be free. For “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.”
~ David Azerrad
Please turn the #SchumerShutdown into something positive.
Please, press for an up-or-down vote on every issue.
Please, clean up the Senate and the House so every Senator has to go on the record about what he or she is voting for or against each and every vote.

For the Utah transplant, Orrin Hatch, who built his retirement out of taxpayer pockets:
Don’t let the door hit your backside on the way out.
Take a look at Hatch’s Freedom Works Scorecard (only covers from 2005) to see how and when he chooses to be an alleged Republican. Of course, FreedomWorks, Conservative Review, and Heritage Action do not monitor the same bills so you really have to study each scorecard to see how and when he votes for a Republican vs Progressive agenda. (Note his 25% votes in 2007.)
The worst thing Orrin G. Hatch did, in 2017, was to not stand up for or with Senator Mike Lee when Mike stood his ground for the American people on HealthCare, quote:
“I don’t see him looking for a path to yes. It seems like he’s against everything right now,” said Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah). “That’s the way it looks to me.
In my opinion, Hatch exposed himself as an arrogant sellout employing that which seemed like sophistry to discredit Mike Lee. Hatch will always and forever pale in comparison to the indomitable statesman, Senator Mike Lee.
Orrin G. Hatch will, no doubt, relish in the accolades and praise from other RINO’s and progressives from his forty years reign in living out of taxpayer pockets. And no doubt, Mike Lee will be far more gracious towards Hatch in this retirement phase than Hatch deserves as an esteemed colleague.
I am all for the GOP Tax Reform Bill IF they pull the best out of both bills and pass something that will help the taxpayer. But here is the problem in getting the best bill out of the Conference Committee:
And here are several other problems: Progressives. Check out their Liberty Scorecards and their Heritage Action Scorecards to see how fiscally conservative they are.
For example, see Claire McCaskill, the 21st richest lawmaker on Capitol Hill in 2015, Conservative Review here and on Heritage Action here.
Ask yourself: How do each of her complaints about the current GOP tax plan really matter? Is she really serious or is she just grandstanding and complaining without just cause? Is she really concerned about the taxpayer based upon her lifestyle or does she simply live out of taxpayer pockets? Is she really concerned about all taxpayers or just some taxpayers? Just who is worthy to pay taxes and who is worthier to live off the blood money of some taxpayers? And will she ever stop spending long enough to Cut, Cap, and Balance a Budget?
And of course…
And a few other things worth reading before you make up your own mind:
