Who is behind the Mike Lee attacks?

For the last two years I have seen attacks on Mike Lee continue to grow. Why is that? Who is behind those attacks? Why are alleged Conservatives fueling those attacks or perhaps the better question: Who are the trusted voices whispering in their ears?

What I know about Mike Lee is: ASK Mike Lee. Go to the ORIGINAL SOURCE, Mike Lee, just like Glenn Beck did:

If you have followed Mike Lee, you know he is more measured in thought than most. He is not one to speak without careful considerations. You know he is a Constitutionalist. You know his father, the late Rex Lee, taught him well. You know Mike has always been able to discuss his rational thoughts on that which he believes, promotes, and stands for.

If you do not know that then pull your head out of the sand, out of the sky, or out from wherever you are hiding it and go to the original source, Mike Lee and then seriously consider the trash talk about him. Ask yourself these questions when sophists bash Mike Lee:

  1. Am I being approached as a thinking citizen or as a frightened animal?
  2. How did the basher find out what they know?
  3. Is this a contrived story or twisted representation of what Mike actually said or believes?
  4. Do I really trust the hearsay or do I trust Mike’s Constitutional voting history more? 
  5. Is the yapper giving an accurate account of something or it is an attack on Mike Lee? 
  6. Can I verify the information by going to Mike Lee as my original source? 

(Hat Tip to Gary C. Lawrence, Political Campaigns and You, New Era, Sept. 1972)

So please. If you feel triggered by some report of what Mike Lee said or is trying to do, do your own research. Do not trust anyone who is trying to discredit an honorable man, doing the very best he can to be honest, true, and trustworthy of your good opinion.

Full Disclosure: I am a huge fan of Mike Lee. IF he ever goes rogue (spit), oh, I will talk about it.

#FreeThePeople with great conversations

I have been a fan of Matt Kibbe since he headed up FreedomWorks. In fact I was pleased to attend a fantastic FreedomWorks event in Florida where I got to shake his hand, get a photo, and signed copy of Hostile Takeover. (And I must mention the wonderful Deneen Borrelli from whom I got a signed copy of Blacklash and a photo.)

When FreedomWorks edged out Kibbe I was pretty irritated. He was able to work with Conservative-Libertarians and shake up the alleged conservative establishment to create a movement of the masses that helped reign in government power, only to have the proverbial rug yanked out from under his feet.

So now on to the great news portion of the story. Matt Kibbe moved forward by writing Don’t Hurt People and Don’t Take Their Stuff, another fab book. He has developed his video/podcast program on the BlazeTV titled Kibbe On Liberty. He is a fantastic interviewer of very interesting people sharing ideas.

I hope you will be enticed to view a few of my favorite Kibbe video/podcasts below and follow his new political organization at FreeThePeople.org.

The Caravan vs Senator Mike Lee

Evidently I missed this interview with Senator Mike Lee on Glenn Beck the other day.  I always appreciate how tempered Mike Lee is in his solution based approach to catastrophic events that are designed to wreak havoc on the American People.

Thanks Mike, for taking the time to go on Glenn Beck to #FrameTheDebate for this sensible solution.

Sen. Mike Lee urges asylum agreement with Mexico as migrant caravan heads for US border

“Mexico would require people who enter Mexico, let’s say from Honduras or El Salvador or any of these other countries in Central America… with the intent of claiming asylum, they would have to claim asylum in Mexico rather than in the Untied States. Now, this would be similar to an agreement we already have in place with Canada and a rule imposed by the E.U. for refugees arriving in E.U. countries from Syria,” Lee explained.

“In other words, when people are fleeing a country that is dangerous to them … they ought to apply for asylum in the first country they reach,” he added.

#AreYouListening Marco Rubio? Mitch McCONnell? And for the sake of Florida I hope Senator Bill Nelson (Rated F) gets a clue.

Religious Freedom: It must be fought for

The ability to read, ponder, and then act upon the ideas you formulate through critical thinking matter. It is important to preserving personal freedom. You never know who you may influence through your open and honest approach to seeing things as they really are. 

Why America’s religious freedom ambassador thinks everyone can help ‘fight’ for this ‘foundational’ right

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.
