GOP Leaders Broke Their
Pledge to America

Breitbart´s Big Government, by David Bozell

Original Article

Posted By:mikkins2, 3/28/2014 12:59:01 PM

When House Republicans penned their Pledge to America in 2010, they convinced American voters they would advance a conservative agenda if they regained control of the House that year. Four years later, what promises have they actually delivered? ObamaCare is still intact, our national debt has grown by $3 trillion, and Republicans have capitulated to Democrats on every issue from the debt ceiling to the budget. Republican leaders in both the House and the Senate have failed conservatives and have failed to keep their Pledge to America. Let’s examine how the GOP pledge has fallen flat. Repeal the Costly Health Care Takeover of

Comments:
A great article to be saved for further reference. A list of broken promises made by the Republican Establishment used to trick you into voting for them.
Its the reason why the Tea Party continues to grow and gain momentum. It is time to realize voting for a Republican just because that person is a Republican is just as harmful to your liberty as it is to vote for a democrat. In fact, it is worse. You are abetting your own demise by not taking a stand.

Got Tea?

Correct OP. It takes a patriot to secure freedom - not a blue-blood, ruling class, establishment GOP type. While McCain´s ilk run to the microphone with each Tea Party stumble, at least the Tea Party has a 500+ batting average on its candidates. The GOP provides NOTHING. Boehner - what a joke. It is a race against time, but if we can stay together as a nation, eventually the Tea Party will prevail.

Good post and well said, OP. Of course the apologists will whine that they only controlled the House. They want us to forget what happened between 2000 and 2006 when they controlled the WH, House, and Senate. They also want us to forget what they did when things were near balance, like when Trent Lott offered to "share power" with the Dems.

Anyone who expects things to be different should the GOP retake the Senate must remember Einstein´s definition of insanity.

All we can do is vote for genuine conservatives, be they Republican or Independent. Any Democrat claiming to be conservative should be shunned, as they will still be bound to support Harry Reid. Let them renounce and leave the Democratic Party first.

The only way to "clean this up" and get the country back on track is to coalesce into a new conservative party.

Give me a break! What part of the Constitution makes it possible for the House to do _anything_ on its own?

The only action that can take is a negative one that denies money to programs. With the Press on the Democrat side even that action is just not feasible as the lo fo´s will thrash the GOP in the next election.

Reality isn´t pretty.

Perhaps they were silly to make the pledges.

Under Bush the pubs had control of both houses and the executive. Did they roll back any of the previous progressive encroachments on our liberty? No! They did not. They expanded those encroachments. Remember GWB didn´t fire any of Clinton´s appointees when he came into office. The infestation was allowed to grow and now it has metastasized to the point of killing the host body politic.

In the last 100 years the GOP has nominated 3 principled conservatives; Coolidge, Goldwater and Reagan. The rest have been a gaggle of secular progressive crooks, frauds, hustlers and buffoons. Yet far too many refuse to let go of their infantile fantasy that the R´s are the good guys and the GOP is a conservative party. And then they wonder why nothing changes in DC. Lord have mercy.

FEC Probes Pro-Cochran
Barbour-Run Super PAC
Bretbart´s Big Government, by Matthew Boyle    Original Article
Posted By: mikkins2- 7/2/2014 5:46:00 PM     Post Reply
The Federal Election Commission (FEC) has asked a pro-Thad Cochran Super PAC, called Mississippi Conservatives, to provide additional information about what the newspaper Roll Call said “appears to be campaign finance violations.” At issue are last-minute expenditures made by the PAC in the days before the initial June 3 primary. The FEC “Request for Additional Information” says the PAC does not appear to have disclosed some of its spending in a timely manner. The FEC notes in the letter sent to treasurer Brian Perry that failure to “adequately respond” by Aug. 1 “could result in an audit or enforcement action.”

Reverend Steve Fielder, a pastor at the First Union Missionary Baptist Church in Meridian, Mississippi, is accusing Senator Thad Cochran´s campaign of violating election laws by giving black Democratic voters cash in exchange for votes in the recent GOP runoff. But mainstream media seem uninterested in the story. The only outlet outside of conservative media covering the story is Forbes magazine. On July 1, the magazine explained what the penalties might be if Fielder´s allegations prove true. "If true," Forbes wrote, "such an action would be clearly illegal under both federal law and Mississippi statutes, specifically MS Code 97-13-1;

Conservative election integrity organization True The Vote filed suit in federal court Tuesday against Mississippi’s Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann and the Mississippi Republican Party, asking a judge for an immediate injunction against them so that the election material from the state’s June 24 GOP primary runoff can be inspected. The lawsuit comes as allegations that Sen. Thad Cochran’s (R-MS) campaign and his allies engaged in voter fraud to win last Tuesday’s runoff against conservative state Sen. Chris McDaniel. Cochran bested McDaniel by fewer than 7,000 votes but did so with an overwhelming turnout from liberal Democrats in the black

The House is no longer requiring lawmakers to report some free trips they take on the annual forms they file about their personal finances. The change was not publicly announced but was described in an instruction book available to lawmakers on how to fill out the forms. Legislators will still have to report details about their travel on the House clerk´s website, which is less commonly monitored by reporters, watchdog groups and others than the financial disclosure reports. That information is publicly available and is far more specific than the one line that -- until now -- they have provided on their

After President Barack Obama said he would try to unilaterally change as many of the nation´s immigration laws as possible on Monday because House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) informed him there would not be a vote on an immigration bill in the House this year, U.S. Chamber of Commerce CEO Tim Donohue vowed to keep pushing for a bill.

Reverend Steve Fielder, a pastor at the First Union Missionary Baptist Church in Meridian, Mississippi, has accused Mississippi Senator Thad Cochran’s campaign of engaging in an illegal and criminal campaign scheme to purchase the votes of black community members. The suspect votes were cast during Cochran’s successful effort to defeat Tea Party challenger Chris McDaniel in the Mississippi Republican primary run-off held last week. If true, such an action would be clearly illegal under both federal law and Mississippi statutes, specifically MS Code 97-13-1; MS Code 97-13-3 (2013) (Federal Code 18 U.S.C. 597, U.S.C. 1973i(c)), each punishable by a prison

A black Mississippi pastor has emerged to claim Sen. Thad Cochran´s (R-MS) campaign paid “thousands” of Democrats $15 each to vote in the June 24 GOP runoff – and that he was part of the scheme. Rev. Stevie Fielder, an associate pastor at First Union Missionary Baptist Church in Meridan, Mississippi, says Cochran´s campaign “told me to offer blacks $15 each and to vote for Thad.” Fielder, who was paid by freelance journalist Charles C. Johnson for the story, provided a new outlet launched by Johnson—GotNews.com—with four text messages from a person purporting to be Cochran campaign staffer Saleem Baird. The messages cite

Jenny Beth Martin, chair of the Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund, is calling on Republican National Committee (RNC) chairman Reince Priebus to intervene in the Mississippi Senate race over incumbent Sen. Thad Cochran´s reliance on Democratic voters to prevail in the GOP runoff and amid emerging claims of illegitimate ballots. "No one disputes that Thad Cochran´s vote total Tuesday was the result of crossover votes cast by Democrats -- in fact, Establishment Republicans and their operatives are bragging publicly about their ´brilliant´ strategy,” Martin said in a statement provided exclusively to Breitbart News.

Boehner’s Lawsuit Against
Obama Is Just a Feint

So what’s with John Boehner’s newfound love of litigation? The speaker announced yesterday that he will ask the House to initiate a lawsuit against the president over his refusal to enforce the laws Congress has passed. That’s something the Wall Street Journal and George Will have both suggested, and it’s not a crazy idea. First, the House likely has standing to bring an action. In 1990 a federal court held that a group of congressmen could not bring an action over George H.W. Bush’s failure to comply with the 1974 War Powers Resolution, but left open whether the House as

A new Gallup poll finds that 41 percent of Americans want immigration levels to decrease than increase; just 22 percent want levels to increase. That’s nearly a two-to-one margin. If you go by party identification, 50 percent of Republicans, 43 percent of independents, and 32 percent of Democrats wish to see the flow of immigrants reduced. As our economic torpor continues under the Obama administration, the sentiments towards the issue of immigration will remain heated. Lydia Saad of Gallup wrote, “Deciding how many new immigrants to welcome each year can be controversial, particularly when unemployment is high, and seeming competition for good jobs

A government-contracted security force threatened to arrest doctors and nurses if they divulged any information about the contagion threat at a refugee camp housing illegal alien children at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas, sources say. In spite of the threat, several former camp workers broke their confidentiality agreements and shared exclusive details with me about the dangerous conditions at the camp. They said taxpayers deserve to know about the contagious diseases and the risks the children pose to Americans. I have agreed to not to disclose their identities because they fear retaliation and prosecution.

WASHINGTON – Republicans see the November midterm elections as an opportunity to take the nation on a different path and call for a new conservative message focusing on the problems of regular Americans. During the latest convention of conservative activist Ralph Reed’s Faith and Freedom Coalition in Washington, D.C., Republicans confidently proclaimed that the GOP has an opportunity to turn back the past six years of President Obama’s administration in the midterm elections. “There’s only one thing to be done in 2014…and that is to take back America by taking back the Senate,” Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said

Two Texans may be vying for the Republican presidential nomination in 2016: Sen. Ted Cruz and Governor Rick Perry. Cruz overwhelmingly won the Texas GOP 2016 convention straw poll, confirming his position as the conservative grassroots candidate. He fires up crowds unlike any other politician today, and the power of motivating voters and volunteers should not be underestimated. But will he run in 2016? The signs point to yes. One of his staffers left his office to start a committee to draft him into running. He has visited the early states and spent many weekends during his first 18 months in office raising
