Never to be conquered: We, the People, must #FrameTheDebate

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.

Middle of the Road: The tale of tales

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. 

Tax Reform

Education Reform

Infrastructure Reform

Justice Reform

Workforce Reform

Regulatory Reform

 

“…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. 

 

Forged and Tempered: Men of Consequence

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. 

“Future legislation should scrub the tax code of all subsidies for privileged interests and permanently extend a majority of the tax cuts contained in the act.” ~ The Senate’s Ugly Budget Deal Would Trample on the Success of Tax Reform

Bottom line: Mike Lee plainly and succinctly explains it here:

Thank you Thomas Massie and Mike Lee for being men of consequence.

Take Back The Senate: #DitchMitch

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:

  1. Boyd Matheson: Shutdown insanity — political posturing at people’s expense
  2. ‘SCHUMER SHUTDOWN’ SHOWS MCCONNELL WILL GIVE DEMOCRATS DEALS HE WON’T GIVE REPUBLICANS
  3. 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.”

Paul Ryan and Mitch McCONnell #TaxReform vs #RealTaxReform

Bottom line, a meager #TaxReform passed in the house. It is better than nothing IF Mitch McConnell presses for #honest reform from the Senate and the House and Senate rise up to negotiate every best part from both bills without compromising to the progressive agenda. 
My touchstones for integrity in the senate are Mike Lee, Ted Cruz and Rand Paul. I am watching them to hear how things are really going in the senate negotiating process.
See: 

 

As the Senate deliberates this week it will be interesting to see what happens next.

Who will help me make Government Small Again?

Tonight Senator Mike Lee held a live event on his Facebook page that was also linked to his Senate page. As always, watching and listening to Mike is like sitting in Church. I feel so much better hearing him listen to questions, then answer people with clear, plain language so there is no misunderstanding as to where he stands on issues or about the principles he so heartedly defends.

His closing comments were absolutely fantastic. I wish those comments and the following was on YouTube so I could embed them. They are not yet available, but here is my transcription of a short video on his Twitter feed: 

“In order to have economic growth we do need to adjust the size, the scope, the cost of the federal government. And when we look at so called tax pay-fors, we shouldn’t just be looking to raise taxes on anyone, we should, instead, be looking for ways to make government more effective, make government more efficient, make sure the government can do more with less.

Business all around America do this constantly as they have to adjust to market cycles, as they have to adjust to real world conditions.

Tragically, the government hasn’t held itself to that same standard. And as a result government has continued to grow, the cost of it has continued to expand and to do so at an unacceptably high rate….”  ~ Senator Mike Lee, October 25, 2017 

Please, go to Mike’s YouTube page. Get your information on Mike Lee from the original source, Mike Lee, so you can see how truly a Consistent Conservative he is. 

It is NOT the Government’s money: 

Watch Mike on today’s Senate Republican’s broadcast regarding the Parent Tax Penalty. The entire broadcast is great. Mike comes in around the 14 minute mark.

Feel the Bern on Taxes

I had a lot going on today and this evening so missed the debate with Bernie Sanders and Ted Cruz.

Bottom line for me: Full Repeal of Obamacare Tax is REAL tax reform.

Senator Mike Lee’s take on the Child Tax Credit as neccesary for tax reform makes total sense to me and I do not have children. Read FOR THE NON-RICH, THE CHILD TAX CREDIT IS THE KEY TO TAX REFORM by Ernie Tedeschi.

Mike Lee posted, quote:  must benefit our ultimate entrepreneurial and investor class: America’s moms and dads. 

And there there are issues with tax reform and the budget process playing into it. What difference does tax reform make if there is no cutting, or capping or balancing happening the budget?… while spending keeps going on and on and on and …. well, you get the picture.

Please, watch Mike Lee tell it like it needs to be told: 

(Wish there was a rap for things Mike Lee talks about! >subliminal to Nate Smoove and Diamond & Silk<.)
