Republican lobbyist warns conservatives:
´Big Business´ might ´change sides´

Washington Examiner, by Timothy P. Carney

Original Article

Posted By:mikkins2, 7/18/2014 6:53:08 AM

Some Republicans are beginning to extend their free-market, limited-government beliefs to include opposition to corporate welfare, like the Export-Import Bank. Many conservatives hate the idea of centralized education standards driven by a coalition of unaccountable bureaucrats and big business. K Street lobbyist and former GOP congressional aide John Feehery warns that this is a dangerous for the Right to walk, asking: What would happen if Big Business decided to change sides? What would happen if the Chamber of Commerce suddenly stopped being a huge fundraising machine for the Republican Party and started financing pro-business Democrats?

Comments:
Mr.Freehery seems to not understand that the logic behind the words that come out of his mouth is not as intelligent nor earth shattering as he thinks it is.

Remember Mississippi!
Got a muzzle?

Earth to Feehery. Big Business switched affiliation to the Democrats years ago.

I don´t know about big business but I know I´m close to changing sides. Not to democrat. To anyone who is proud to be American and believes in the rule of law and protecting our boarders. Is there anyone in Washington like that?

Sadly ´big business´ has been infiltrated and taken over by the Left as was the media, schools and mainstream religion.

Board rooms and executive suites are filled with activists who care more about race, environmentalism, social justice and personal enrichment than customer service or return on investment for shareholders.

It is bad in NY and DC. The K Street lobbyists worship money and activism and couldn´t care less about the future of the country.

I´ll say it again. When Libtards are in power, USA experiences economic disasters. The middle class is about to be wiped out. How then will Big Business continue to be Big and for how long? Reasoning skills are no longer working in the minds and brains of those in control. Look at the mess of this country right now....what are they doing about it? Supporting this? and WHY?

#7, do you understand that your "local C of C" will have members such as your barbershop, the little bookstore on the corner, the best grocery store in town, the tire store down the street, your sister´s favorite dress shop across town, and so forth. The Chamber of Commerce is not simply made up of "Big Business".

He just thinks they may need a reminder that they need to pressure the C of C to support THEIR interests, not those of mega-corporations.

Big Business loves Big Government. The beauty of this is that Big Business can only give money and doesn´t vote. They also carry a lot of baggage. Slowly but surely we are building a good ground game through the myriad of Tea Parties. A good ground game with a good candidate and enough money will always beat big money and no ground game. Look at Brat vs. Cantor.

Despite the usual patronizing response from the GOP cheerleading squad, I think #7 makes a good point. Putting pressure on local businesses and C of C chapters will roll up to the national level.

There is no single magic solution to the GOP Establishment corruption, but there are multiple ways to apply pressure. This is one way we can all help the cause.

If the Chamber wants it that way, then we (rightly and accurately) label and publicly protest them as a fascist organization, so loudly and constantly that no "local" business would dare remain associated with them. We wouldn´t need national media coverage to destroy them (or their members force them to desist) nationwide, city-by-city. I´ve been to monthly Chamber meetings in our mid-size city. The reporters assigned to cover them are bored and would jump all over that story! (They also tend to be a bit more wonk-ish, more likely to get details beyond "dissatisfied" and "tea party.")

Between "corporate welfare" and "political correctness" we need to quickly educate the public to what fascism really is... before the Che posters in university and bureaucrat offices are joined by posters of der Fuhrer in three-color silk-screen.

Not only does this expose the fallacy that ´Big Business´ is conservative (large corporations donate heavily to both ´big tents´), but John Feehery has it backwards: ´Big Business´ had better worry that conservatives may ´change sides´ and form a party of their own. Conservatives might recruit former Reagan Democrats and shift power away from crony capitalists in the two ´big tents´. Conservatives might finally institute true tax reform that would stop the bleeding of America´s wealth, energize the middle class, and encourage entrepreneurs and small business to compete with the ´bigs´.

Yes, we are the ones who should ´change sides´.

Rather than fret over which corrupt party is favored we need to understand that favor can be purchased, and will be purchased by people acting in their own self interest which we should expect them to do.

When the government governs far, far more via agencies, regulations and the tax code than it does by the congressional legislative process and the regulation application, enforcement, and tax rates are subject to those who purchase favor, we get a radically different government than outlined in the constitution.

We have the highest corporate tax rate on the planet causing business to flee, but GE pays no federal tax? Our politicians get filthy rich in office, why? Because the corporations can purchase favor because we do not function by the rule of law applied equally.

When the argument centers around which corrupt party is worse we really aren´t getting to the point.

About one half of big business is already on the Marxist democrats side at this time. They believe in getting all the government handouts they can from either party.

Solution is to ban all handouts to all businesses by government and put government back under its limitations imposed by our constitution.

favors can only be bought and sold if there is the power in government to control those favors. One of the many advantages of government being at as local a level as possible is that We The People can more readily keep an eye on a town councilcritter or country commissioner than on a assistant deputy undersecretary to the assistant to the 2nd deputy undersecretary of the 2nd chief directorate of the Missouri region of the fed agency of your choice. And that is by no means the worst example of a title that I´ve seen or dealt with. Gets interesting to see it on a business card or letterhead too. Such a person answers to, well, hard to tell, but certainly not to you or to me nor to any other "mere" citizen. But you may live the next street over from the councilcritter, and can certainly make things interesting at a council meeting.
Small government, responsive to the law and to the citizens, that works reasonably well. Rule by far-off bureaucrat or entrenched Congresscritter from another state, not so well. We used to understand that. Guess it´s why FDR et al tried to fuzz the matter.

It may sound pedestrian to point out, but it’s critical to restate why it’s so important that our nation is called the United States of America, and not simply America. The full name emphasizes that the Founders viewed the nation not as one monolithic entity but as a union of sovereign entities delegating limited powers to a central government.To preserve this balance, the Founders put a number of checks in the U.S. Constitution, most notably creating the Senate, which allows for equal membership from every state, thus preventing states with larger populations from running roughshod over the interests of smaller

"Republicans did not elect the nominee on June 24," McDaniel said in a statement, adding that “we are excited for the opportunity for Republicans to reclaim their primary process.” "This challenge is not about the candidates,” McDaniel said. “It is about the integrity of Mississippi´s election process, and we are committed to ensuring that process is accurate and fair for future Republican candidates.”

Late last month, as members of Congress were poised to leave for their summer recess, the House Republicans’ top policy experts found themselves in a barren conference room in the Capitol’s basement, negotiating with the party’s most ardent opponents of immigration overhaul. As senior members of the Judiciary Committee looked on, the opponents — Representatives Raúl R. Labrador of Idaho, Louie Gohmert of Texas, Steve King of Iowa and Mo Brooks of Alabama — reshaped two bills to address the rush of unaccompanied children trying to enter the country illegally. Representative Michele Bachmann, Republican of Minnesota, was there, too, and she

On Thursday, the House GOP imploded over its border bill to solve the child-migrant crisis, pulling the legislation from the floor for lack of votes. And there, standing among the legislative wreckage, stood the proud senator from Texas, Ted Cruz. Not literally, of course. But the tea party Texan is once again smack in the middle of a House Republican debacle. With a reach as wide as his state, the freshman senator has his arm around conservative House Republicans.

There has been a lot said in recent years by Sarah Palin, Rush Limbaugh, and other conservatives about crony capitalism – or if you prefer, crony socialism, crony government, corporatism – or just plain cronyism. Whatever you call it, this conversation is increasingly vital as government grows and continues to pervert markets by picking winners and losers as a way to obtain wealth for powerful lawmakers and their fund-raisers and friends. This rampant cronyism is one of the most insidious outgrowths of a government gone wild, and has become a swirling vortex of self sustaining and systemic corruption. Thus, the focus

Flashes of disagreement over how to fight the Islamic State are mounting between President Obama and U.S. military leaders, the latest sign of strain in what often has been an awkward and uneasy relationship. Even as the administration has received congressional backing for its strategy, with the Senate voting Thursday to approve a plan to arm and train Syrian rebels, a series of military leaders have criticized the president’s approach against the Islamic State militant group. Retired Marine Gen. James Mattis, who served under Obama until last year, became the latest high-profile skeptic on Thursday, telling the House Intelligence Committee

That rare respiratory illness sickening children around the country continues to crop up in new places. It has been confirmed in 22 states, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Friday, appearing in three states where it had not been previously: Georgia, Michigan and Washington state. These children are facing an uncommon enterovirus strain. While enteroviruses in general are quite common, this particular strain — enterovirus 68 — has not cropped up terribly often since it was first identified in 1962. It can cause severe breathing problems, a particular danger for children who may suffer from asthma or other

Shortly after the Senate passed the bill, which was passed by the House on Wednesday, Obama spoke from the White House.

Washington - The Secret Service is coming under intense scrutiny after a man who hopped the White House fence made it all the way through the front door before being apprehended. President Barack Obama and his daughters had just departed the White House on Friday evening when an intruder scaled the north fence, darted across the lawn and into the presidential residence, where agents nabbed him. The security breach triggered a rare evacuation of much of the White House, with Secret Service officers drawing their guns as they rushed staffers and journalists out a side door.
