Reagan’s House Heroes Stop Plan B
American Spectator, by Jeffrey Lord

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 12/21/2012 7:22:24 AM

Call it a Reykjavik Moment. An Air Traffic Controllers Moment. Both of which were Reagan Moments. Moments in American history when, under extreme pressure, Ronald Reagan simply refused to buckle. Against all the chorus shouted from the media and congressional bleachers — that he had failed by walking out on a bad deal with Gorbachev or recklessly fired striking air traffic controllers who were striking against federal law — Ronald Reagan never blinked. And the fact that he didn’t blink made America — and the world — an infinitely better place. Thursday night 13 conservative House Republicans defeated

They did the right thing,now the ball´s in Obama´s court.We´ll see if he was serious about a deal or posturing so he can impose his own.Like another poster said,it´s better to get shot standing than on your knees.

BW..I think Bernake wants out because of the continued pressure to print money.Just a feeling,no evidence.

Guess we´ll see if they was heroes or fools - but one thing´s for sure... they got principles. And pro-American principles is something sure lacking in Washington, and in BOTH parties.

I was in D.C. back in October from across the River looking over top the Pentagon from the Air Force Monument, the city just looked and felt plain evil.

I reckon it looks jest a mite less so today.

I don´t think Obama is going to DO anything.

I think he´s going to take us over the cliff, then after his vacation, he will by executive order, lower the taxes for those who are worthy within his eyes, remove cuts from his favorite gov´t plans and screw the rest.

And the evil successful people in the USA are going to get what´s coming to them.

We need language. Badly. Language that emphasizes that the government already takes too much of our citizens´ earned money. That the size of government must be reduced. That whole departments must be eliminated.

And stop calling taxes "revenues." Sheesh.

The Republicans got themselves into this mess with their dem lite spending habits during Bush´s terms. The party needs to purge the big spenders like Beohner and the others who merely posture and talk about cutting spending but have no intention of doing so. God bless these 13 brave Tea Party congressmen.

We don´t need clever, diplomatic deal-makers -- we need representatives who are of principle and determined to make those principles realities (dare I say: just like the libs do?). libs are in it to WIN, and not enough us are.

libs are gonna sling their mud no matter what true conservatives do, so we have absolutely nothing to lose! Take a stand, commit to it, and pray enough people wake up to the truth before it´s waaay to much later!

Braveheart anyone? Anyone?

I dont know about the rest of you, but I am ready to go over the cliff! Raise taxes on no one or everyone! Real cuts in spending not the fake non-cut cuts that the president has "promised." God bless the congressmen and congressmen who refused to go along to get along! Time for Boehner to weep someplace else! Any other short sentence radical slogans you think of?! I did not vote for my congressman to raise taxes!

Boehner was making threats last night, removal from committees or sub-committees.
Let´s face it, Boehner climbed his way to the top, but is no leader.
Spending must be reduced, waste must be eliminated..and THIS time they have to get serious about it..

#6, you are singing my song, but it is a tune that Boehner doesn´t recognize. I am so frustrated with the Republican´s inability to explain such a simple concept. The government is too big. Taxes are too high, and most importantly it´s the out of control spending!

What´s next is Simpson-Bowles sequestration. Boehner made a tactical error by ousting Tea Party members from committees prior to this vote. I´m thinking it was a show of good faith to Zippy during all those private meetings. Zippy is scared of the Tea Party no matter how much he tries to dismiss them. This was all Kabuki anyway since the little Napolean in the Senate promised not to do anything with any bill coming out of the house. As soon as he said that, the Republicans should have jumped at the ´´Party of NO´´ meme.

The one positive of going over the cliff, is that new tax policy will have to be proposed and debated. The redistribution of revenue by the IRS will likely end. Most people don´t know that a sizable number of people collect redistribution payments each month from taxpayers like you or I. Each Democrat president has expanded this program. Obama has put it on steroids. This disincentivizes workers to work longer or accept a promotion. These programs have to end.

The IRS is saying that ´Income Tax Refund´ checks might be delayed. This might adversely impact the group who look forward to their $4800 tax ´refund´ in January. Especially for the ones who have already borrowed against it!

So, the House Republican Party consists of just thirteen guys. The rest of the House are tax-and-spend Democrats of one type or another. Glad that got cleared up.

And Boehner stinks worse in the leadership area than Hillary Clinton and the Wizard of Ego in the White House, which is saying something.

Boehner wanted to pass Plan B so Republicans could say they gave the President what he said he wanted and he nevertheless rejected it, thereby shifting the blame to Obama. I was inclined to give it a shot. I don´t know if it would have been better than what we now have but it makes no difference, now we have no recourse but to stand behind the Tea Partiers and hope for the best.

Incidentally, I am a member of Tea Party Patriots but I don´t always agree with every position they take. Being respectful of both sides does not seem to be commonplace here on Lucianne.com. Why can´t we have different views without declaring war within our own party and driving people into the ground?

President Obama has a veto, so whatever comes out of Congress must be acceptable to him, too. He disagrees with us, therefor a compromise is necessary. With no compromise, taxes go up on everybody. I don´t blame anyone in particular, but this preening on being purer than Caesar´s wife on tax rates is getting us nowhere.

Remember Obama told his voters the spending cuts in the sequester will never happen.
He wants the spending and will try to stop the cuts.If he finds he can´t overcome those cuts he will be over the cliff he didn´t choose.
If the Tea Party is to win they must stop him from issuing the illegal exe-orders he has played so far.
Is there one rep in the House who can and will fight as you all wish as Speaker or was the revolt merely a back lash against power?
Can Harry Reid be removed ?

The Tea Party has become a parasite that is destroying the host.
They hate the Republican Party, they refuse to support the Republican Party, the belittle the leaders with names like RINO and Bonehead ,
many claim they stayed home this past November and yet, they will have Boehner and Ryan campaign for them
and they take money from the RNC and Rove when they are campaigning.
They need to go on their own and stop trying to destroy the Republican Party they claim to hate so much.
Since 2008 ,the Tea Party has cost us the Senate with candidates like Buck, O´Donnell, Angle, Akin , Raese and Mourdock.
Last night´s uvenile chest beating power play weakened
the small bit of leverage that the Republicans
had with Obama.
And they don´t care.
They would rather lose and lose and lose again as long as they lose the " right " way.
They ally now with the Democrats to defeat the Republicans.
Not one single good thing will come from
last night´s theatrics except the blessing of Levin, Limbaugh . Palin and Hannity.
If the Republican Party is to survive, it must separate from the Tea Party.
The mystery is why the Tea Party refuses to separate from the party they continue to sabotage.

Virginia governors before Bob

A $200 leather jacket, an $18,000 Caribbean vacation rental, $350 in hunting gear — just a few of the valuable things given to the governor of Virginia in recent years. But the items weren’t accepted by Bob McDonnell, whose indictment on federal public corruption charges has renewed attention to the comparatively lax laws over Virginia’s culture of gift-giving. They were made to his predecessors, Mark R. Warner and Tim Kaine. The former Democratic governors accepted thousands of dollars worth of tickets to professional football, basketball, hockey and auto racing events, as well as countless bottles of wine, rounds of golf

President Obama has been losing his TV audience — literally. With the State of the Union proving ever less entrancing for viewers, the White House is desperate to turn the speech into a multiday event in an effort to bolster interest in Mr. Obama’s policies, even if people don’t tune in to hear his words. With online question-and-answer sessions, a “virtual road trip” scheduled for Friday and a presidential video, the White House is determined to spread Mr. Obama’s message beyond Tuesday night’s hourlong address. “Literally, the conversation never ends,” said Lee Rainie, director of the Pew Research Center’s Internet

Democrats hope Obama’s State of Union
speech will be start of populist agenda

Democrats consider President Obama’s State of the Union address on Tuesday a launching point for a year of sustained assault on Republicans over a populist economic agenda, part of an effort to focus more on bread-and-butter issues and less on income inequality. Party officials say they hope Obama’s speech will set the stage for Senate and House candidates to confront Republicans on issues such as the minimum wage, unemployment benefits and access to college education. Their minimum goal is to preserve Democratic control of the Senate, because not doing so could cripple what remains of the president’s legislative agenda. In

A Quinnipiac University National Poll released January 22nd reveals that American voters rate President Barack Obama’s leadership on the economy, jobs, and healthcare as very poor; his only positive marks come from fighting terrorism. Barack Obama’s first presidential campaign narrative argued that President George W. Bush and the Republicans were so interested in fighting a “War on Terror” they had failed America at home. At his victory speech on November 5, 2008, President-elect Obama bellowed: “Tonight, because what we did in this election, at this defining moment, change has come to America.” According to a Gallup Poll, after the same

Ex-Mayor Nagin goes on

NEW ORLEANS — Former New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin, who led the city during its darkest days after Hurricane Katrina, will be thrust back into the spotlight this week when he goes on trial in a corruption case that mushroomed at the end of his eight-year tenure. Even before the allegations, Nagin´s popularity steadily eroded as the city struggled to recover from Katrina´s devastation, and he has kept a low profile since leaving office in 2010. Nagin was living in a Dallas suburb when a grand jury indicted him a year ago on charges he accepted free trips and more

Powerful committees in both chambers of Congress now want answers to questions surrounding Christine O´Donnell’s personal tax records and whether the Delaware Republican’s private information was illegally accessed and ultimately used in an effort to derail her 2010 U.S. Senate bid. The House Ways and Means Committee has joined the Senate Finance Committee in probing a string of incidents dating back to March 2010, when Ms. O´Donnell — a tea party favorite who riled Delaware’s GOP establishment by besting party mainstay Mike Castle in a primary contest before losing to Democrat Chris Coons in the general election — was told

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce said once again that conservatives were the "problem" when it came to passing immigration reform legislation with amnesty provisions. “The left has never been the problem on this,” Randel Johnson, the chamber’s senior vice president, said on Friday during an immigration summit in Washington. “The right is the problem.” As Breitbart News reported, that is why the Chamber is reportedly going to spend $50 million against the Tea Party, largely because the Tea Party opposes amnesty and comprehensive immigration reform. According to Bloomberg News, the Chamber of Commerce wants to "rewrite" the immigration laws because

Yesterday’s New York Times editorial titled “The Koch Party” raises once again the question whether the paper’s editorial board has been hijacked by Democratic Underground: Only a few weeks into this midterm election year, the right-wing political zeppelin is fully inflated with secret cash and is firing malicious falsehoods at supporters of health care reform. Remember the good old days when people called the Times the “Gray Lady?” Now it’s far-left hysteria, all the time. What has the editors riled up is the spreading of “malicious falsehoods” about Obamacare. Falsehoods such as, if you like your health care, you can

Obama’s rough 2013
prompts a new blueprint

An internal White House assessment concludes that President Obama must distance himself from a recalcitrant Congress after being badly damaged last year by legislative failures, a government shutdown and his own missteps. Obama has said that his fraught relationship with Congress, especially after Republicans won the House in 2010, complicated his ability to promote his agenda. But for the first time, following what many allies view as a lost year, the White House is reorganizing itself to support a more executive-focused presidency and inviting the rest of the government to help. The new approach comes after weeks of

President Obama revived his internal White House political operation Friday in preparation for the 2014 mid-term elections, naming longtime aide David Simas as director of political strategy and outreach. Mr. Simas, who played a key role in the president’s reelection campaign, served much of last year in the West Wing coordinating the administration’s message on Obamacare. He will become the president’s point person for working with Democrats on the midterms, which Mr. Obama has called crucial to implementing his agenda over his final two years in office. In 2009-1010, Mr. Simas served as White House political director. Prior to joining

Democrats see same-sex marriage

Washington Post, by Juliet Eilperin    Original Article

Public opinion on same-sex marriage has shifted so dramatically in recent years that Democratic groups now see the issue as a critical way to mobilize voters in a slew of races up and down the ballot. Just a decade ago, widespread opposition to gay marriage did just the opposite, allowing Karl Rove to mobilize conservatives in 13 states and help reelect George W. Bush as president. The changing political dynamics were on full display this week as Virginia Attorney General Mark R. Herring (D) announced he would not defend the state’s ban on same-sex marriage on the grounds that it was unconstitutional. Herring won a close election

The Republican Party has a great opportunity to re-gain control of the country, but it must seize the day, U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina said Saturday night. The GOP is poised to win back a majority in the Senate and keep its advantage in the House in Congressional elections this fall, Graham said. [Snip] Graham, who is up for re-election, is facing GOP primary challengers state Sen. Lee Bright of Spartanburg, Orangeburg attorney Bill Connor, Upstate businessman Richard Cash and Citadel graduate and Lowcountry public relations businesswoman Nancy Mace. They accuse Graham of not being a true conservative.

Stephen Hawking has produced a "mind-bending" new theory that argues black holes do not actually exist - at least not in the way we currently perceive them. Instead, in his paper, Information Preservation and Weather Forecasting for Black Holes, Hawking proposes that black holes can exist without 'event horizons', the invisible cover believed to surround every black hole.During a previous lecture, 'Into the Black Hole', Hawkins described an event horizon as the boundary of a black hole, "where gravity is just strong enough to drag light back, and prevent it escaping".
“Falling through the event horizon, is a bit like going over Niagara Falls in a canoe", he said. "If you are above the falls, you can get away if you paddle fast enough, but once you are over the edge, you are lost. There's no way back.

Representative Steve Stockman (R-TX), who has been nowhere to be seen for almost three weeks, may have just turned up in London after a trip to Russia, according to Breitbart. Stockman, who submitted a last-minute longshot primary challenge to Senator John Cornyn (R-TX), has missed fifteen roll call votes since January 9, and has held nary a campaign event, despite drastically trailing Cornyn in the polls for an election in early March. Reporters trying to track Stockman down have been met with unresponsive campaign and congressional offices, though he appeared to have been located last week in Cairo, Egypt. Breitbart reported Sunday

Has Marxist/Leninist pal of Bill Ayers Mike Klonsky just given us the reason for the arrest of conservative writer Dinesh D´Souza? Does he have inside information? On January 24, Klonsky dashed off a quick "note" to D´Souza on his Small Talk Blog: Note to Dinesh D´Souza -- You probably shouldn´t have Tweeted that racist remark about Obama and Trayvon Martin. S**t like that sometimes comes back to haunt you. (snip) Klonsky was awarded $175,000 by the Chicago Annenberg Challenge, chaired by Barack Obama. In 2001 he stated that he and Ayers were still gung-ho in their zeal to destroy capitalism, but they had

Amazon Prime is like crack, people warn me in hushed, cautionary tones. Once you try it, you’re hooked. I personally have not signed up for Amazon’s premiere, super-duper, fancy-dancy, wave-o’-the-future membership program, even though I’m a frequent customer. But I’m fascinated by the transformation people talk about once they do. “Oh, you’ll see,” they tell me, “you’ll see.” On its face, Prime offers two simple things: Free two-day shipping on most purchases, and access to streaming movies and TV shows. All for $80 a year. Whether or not people need two-day shipping, a few things seem to happen once they

Last week the Wall Street Journal published Gregory Hicks’s column “Benghazi and the smearing of Chris Stevens.” It would be easy to overlook Hicks’s column in the crush of last week’s news, but it is deserving of special attention. In the column Hicks offers his eyewitness testimony to the security issues that Stevens dealt with at our Libyan facilities before his death. The redacted report of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence Committee that was released on January 15 has left some to draw the conclusion that Stevens rejected additional security and to imply that he is responsible for the success

President Barack Obama was right when he said, “The long-term unemployed are not lazy. They’re not lacking in motivation. They’re coping with the aftermath of the worst economic crisis in generations.” He should know, his policies prolong the situation. From a promised minimum wage increase, to destabilization of the health care system, to an energy policy encapsulated by “Under my plan … electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket,” no part of the Obama vision is about making America freer and richer. (Snip) Washington’s unreality has become offensive on a personal level, almost an affront to America itself. Washington is booming at

Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY), once part of the "Gang of Eight" in the Senate that wrote the immigration bill that the Congressional Budget Office determined would lower the wages of American workers, believes that conservatives are opposed to amnesty because they don´t want America to become "less white." "Yes, things have changed. White Anglo-Saxon men are not exclusively running the country anymore," he said Thursday. "President Obama lost the white male vote 35 to 62 percent yet he recaptured the presidency – by 5 million votes and a resounding electoral college margin." Schumer said the changing demographics also "[explain] why so many

President Obama will be addressing Congress Tuesday in his State of the Union speech, but much of his speech will include plans to bypass them, White House officials said Sunday. "We need to assure to the American people that we can get something done, either through Congress or on our own, White House Senior Adviser Dan Pfeiffer said on CNN. “If Congress doesn’t act, the president will,” Pfeiffer said in a separate appearance on Fox News. (Snip) "It sounds vaguely like a threat, and I think it also has a certain amount of arrogance,” said Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.).

Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg said it was not an "exaggeration" to say America would be committing "national suicide" if it does not pass amnesty legislation. “Our current immigration laws are national suicide,” Bloomberg said on Friday at an immigration summit in Washington. “I don’t think that’s an exaggeration.” Bloomberg, who spent most of 2013 financing campaigns for more gun control and intends to focus on amnesty in 2014, then offered some unsolicited advice to Republicans, saying that the GOP also will not have a future if it does not embrace more amnesty. “If you are against the fastest-growing voting bloc

First lady Michelle Obama is seeking $10 donations to protect Obamacare, her husband´s troubled health insurance system. Just one day before he gives the annual State of the Union address, the first lady sent out a fundraising email to supporters hoping to use the speech to prompt donations to help Democrats in the midterm elections this fall. Friend — Earlier this month, because of what you did, it became illegal for insurance companies to discriminate against the up to 129 million Americans living with pre-existing conditions. Young Americans are able to stay on their parents´ health care plans as they get on their
