´Boomtown´ Special Assails D.C.
for ´Extracting´ Wealth from Taxpayers

Breitbart's Big Government, by Tony Lee

Original Article

Posted By:mikkins2, 1/26/2013 11:41:26 AM

In a blockbuster one-hour investigative special that aired on Fox News´ "Hannity" on Friday, Peter Schweizer, Steve Bannon, and Sean Hannity exposed how Washington, D.C. has extracted power and money from the United States into a centralized location to become the country´s greatest "boomtown," despite not creating anything. Schweizer, the president of the nonpartisan Government Accountability Institute, highlighted how the permanent political class that relies on lobbying and influence peddling makes more money by "growing the size of government," which leaves no incentive on either side of

This goes a long way into exposing why the Republican Establishment never seems to be able to win the fight for less spending and less government.

Its simply because they don´t want to.

The article also explains why some at Lucianne.com attack anyone who empathizes with those willing to speak the truth and bring change to Washington D.C.

This is the reason, IMO, Sarah was trashed so vigorously - she demonstrated in Alaska that she wouldn´t put up with corruption from either side of the aisle. The only constituency that mattered to her was "we the people" and the constitution. How quaint. /s

Eyeopener special. It´s worse than you feared in D.C... The government as ever more voracious parasites on the productive in America. Something´s got to give, the sooner the better. Shows like this special help.

And Steve Bannon´s a good man. For those who don´t know, it´s his Citizens United that brought and won the SCOTUS suit last year that successfully rolled back some of the First Amendment problems of McCain-Feingold.

"Rome: center of the civilized world, in the fifth year of the Imperial Reign of Caesar Obamicus"... a paraphrase of the opening lines of the classic movie "The Robe".

It was pointed out that the fiscal cliff was never going to occur and never will. Simply too much money flowing into the coffers from defense lobbyists (among others) to sit back and do nothing. Lots of "professional wrestling" style debate about it, great fodder for the media, but nothing more. Congress in action is a pathetic joke. Someone stands in front of the floor, making his case, while maybe 5 or 6 in the chamber (among the 20-30 who are even present) are listening. The rest have already met with the cognizant lobbying group in the back room and decided their vote. And unless C-SPAN is catching whatever is being said by the member speaking and the alphabet networks opt to put it on the air that evening, the argument is a waste of time and breath.

The Founders would be apalled at the beltway´s lefty/lib/statist´s reversal in governance to the checks & balances which they provided in the U.S. Constitution! Their tried & true principles in support of Liberty have kept our ship of state historically on course through good times & bad times, ...at least until the unsustainable, radical lefties´ policies intruded throughout the past 40 years.

OP, #´s 1 and 2 right on! I watched most of this. Compare the detail these fellows went into and compare it with the hopeless, behind kissing news coverage we now get in America. Breaux and Lott´s smiling faces on the webste of their lobbyist firm tells you all you need to know. Capitol Hill is corrupt from top to bottom.

We watched - I posted a comment on the Connection before I came to this report. If you didn´t see the program, be sure to catch the you tube videos listed above by #7 - this should be mandatory viewing and curriculum for every student who´s future has been so aggressively compromised by the governmen´ts fiscal madness.

I watched this last night. I thought I´d seen everything when it came to government excess, but this was stunningly hedonistic to the point of insanity.

People handing out cash for half million dollar cars? Wine that cost more than my house flowing like water in restaurants that take days to get into?
No middle class.
Panhandlers down the street from government buildings filled with people who make six figures researching how to help panhandlers.
D.C. is the rabbit hole.
The extreme nepotism...it´s an entrenched aristocracy. No wonder there is no change.

I hope those pigs with their snouts in the trough enjoy their moment because a reckoning of this size will be painful.
Yes. Make this mandatory viewing everywhere.

I also watched last night. Above poster mentioned nepotism which you rarely hear anything about. Just think of Chelsea Clinton´s work career. Not necessarily in politics, but she´s coming. Maybe with her face, she´ll end up as a lobbyist like the others - wives, kids, daughter in laws. Do you remember Trent Lott retiring early so he could get in under the wire to be a lobbyist?

If I were king I´d place the House in Kansas City or Oklahoma City and the Senate in San Francisco, leaving only the executive and its bureaucracy in D.C. That would help to break up the game.

Not to worry, however.

The show provided more than ample evidence of the fact that the government that governs the biggest governs the worst. What goes on in D.C. is an insult to the American people. Makes you feel like a patsy to work hard, live morally and pay your taxes. That must stop.

Thanks for the post, OP.

Just caught the tail end of this last night, so, ditto the thanks to #7 for the YouTube links.

#1, I think you are correct. Bannon and Schweizer credited Palin as an inspiration to them in one of the pieces I read.

Cliven Bundy marched into my life one Friday morning in January 1992 in a protest bound for a federal courthouse in Las Vegas. He held up one side of a street-width banner that asked, “Has the West been won or has the fight just begun?” To my great relief, just as Bundy promised, nearly 200 ranchers from all over the state marched behind him, yelling “Property rights!” Nearly a mile later, the marchers fell silent and filed into the courtroom where Wayne Hage of Pine Creek Ranch faced arraignment for the felony of cleaning brush out of his ditches without a

The Republican challenger to Sen. Pat Roberts, R-Kan., thinks nobody should spend 47 years in Washington. Dr. Milton Wolf, a diagnostic radiologist from the Kansas City area, on Wednesday released a television ad criticizing Roberts for his nearly five decades in the nation´s capital. "After 47 years in Washington, Kansas is a distant memory for Pat Roberts," the ad opens, before pivoting to Wolf´s daily routine as a Kansas doctor. The ad goes on to mention Wolf´s plan to "repeal and replace Obamacare," "fight wasteful spending" and pass congressional term limits. After his tenure, Wolf´s ad promises, he´ll return home to Kansas.

I love that picture from the Bundy Ranch. You know the one that I’m talking about: I’m talking about all of them. I love the horn-handed Cowboys, with real, honest trail dirt on them; I love the American flags; I love the sagebrush; and I love the rebellion-- as in civil, non-violent disobedience. And the question now is, where does this go? Rebellion typically starts after a period of lassitude and hopelessness in the face of overwhelming power. Populations spend years, even decades muttering under their breath about abuses of power, but feel ineffectual to enact real reform. Then one bright day, a fruit stand

In the movie Ben-Hur, Charlton Heston was wrongly accused by government and sentenced to life in prison/slavery. Soldiers marched chained Heston along with other prisoners through the desert without food or water. Heston collapsed, unable to take another step. Jesus was passing by with a small caravan. He walked over and gave Heston a drink of water, which gave Heston the strength to continue. Note: Heston´s unfair ordeal was not over. He would endure much before his release and ultimate victory at the end of the movie. I view the Obama administration’s BLM retreat from bullying rancher Cliven Bundy and the patriots

The chairman of the Mississippi GOP, Joe Nosef, reacted angrily to Tea Party groups calling for his resignation this week, accusing one local activist of secretly working to elect Democrats and saying some “fanatical” Tea Party groups could jeopardize the GOP´s hold on a senate seat in one of the most Republican states in the nation, according to emails obtained by Breitbart News. In the emails, Joe Nosef, the chairman of the Mississippi Republican party, told Mississippi Tea Party president Janis Lane that “help[ing] Democrats win...appears to be your goal.” Nosef also emailed to a list of Republicans that the

Speaker John Boehner´s primary challenger is going there. In a provocative new video from GOP candidate J.D. Winteregg, an announcer asks if Boehner suffer from "electile dysfunction"? "Sometimes, when a politician has been in D.C. too long, it goes to his head," the announcer says as clips flash on-screen of John Boehner laughing with President Obama, John Boehner on the golf course with Obama, and John Boehner smiling while giving Obama a glowing "thumbs up" at the State of the Union address. The ad - titled "When the Moment is Right" - is a spoof of Cialis commercials which air during 60 Minutes

Presidential hopefuls Rand Paul and Jeb Bush got in a slight scuffle over immigration yesterday. Bush called illegal immigration “an act of love” committed by people wanting to support their families, adding that most of them are here illegally because they can’t get in legally. This ignited some Republican rage and Rand Paul got his chance to respond: “You know, I think he might have been more artful, maybe, in the way he presented this,” said Paul, a Kentucky Republican, said on ABC’s This Week. “But I don’t want to say, ‘oh, he’s terrible for saying this.’ If it were

White House blames fox for

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
