The moral outrage of Mitch
McConnell’s cowardly leadership

Conservative Review, by Chris Pandolfo

Original Article

Posted By:tisHimself, 2/10/2018 2:41:57 PM

A travesty occured in the chambers of Congress last night and early this morning. Republicans in Congress exposed themselves as hypocrites and frauds by passing an unconscionable two-year budget deal that will explode this year’s deficit and add $1.5 trillion to the debt. This is a level of spending that is three times larger than government spending in President Obama’s final year in office. A majority of Republicans in both chambers of Congress voted for the bill, and President Trump signed it Friday morning. Whatever pretense of fiscal conservatism the Republican Party once professed has vanished from all but a few

I´m with #2 on this There are fundamental threats to the country that are far worse than the budget problem - AND if those threats come to pass there will be far less control over the budget even than we have now.

This is not to trivialize the budget issue. It is serious. But the threats are for the short term even more serious.

Plus, the Dems kind of put away all of the DACA garbage after it failed the first time. I´d rather get most of something than all of nothing.

Trumpeters, you cannot defend or dismiss Trump’s mad spending while criticizing Obama for same. Just 18 months ago candidate Trump promised to begin reducing the national debt sent soaring by Obama. Deficits and debt are bad, and they cannot be passed off as simply less important than ____.

This spending bill proves that Trump, McConnel, Ryan and others are microphone Republicans, ready to sound conservative in front of the mike but willing to give away our tax dollars to buy the 2018 elections and set up Trump for 2020.

One has to wonder what forces are making these people vote for ridiculous nation busting spending, when the outcomes are obvious. Must be someone bigger than Soros, something bigger than a 3rd world nation with a few baby nukes.

I think I´ll go out and buy a mansion, a yacht and maybe a nice Bentley. I cant afford any of those things, but hey, its good for the economy and there seems to be no penalty.

Nice rant, but it means essentially nothing.

So much of government spending is on autopilot and incrementally increasing. The debt service has to be paid. Every year discretionary spending as a percentage of overall outlays decreases. And against that background the question becomes, just whose "spending" is to be decreased - ours or theirs?

The writer seems to forget that we do have an opposition party, however crooked or disgraced they might be, and their programs and services are important to the tens of millions who vote for them (as well as, in truth, some of us). Spending cuts of our choosing cannot be imposed in a vacuum.

If the writer feels betrayed he should realize that it is less a question of patriotism than acknowledgement of the intractable fact that politics is the pursuit of the possible.

Nice try, #5, but President Trump has already proven he is more conservative by far than the GOPe who always mouth conservative platitudes but never follow through. Trump has to work with Senate LEADERSHIP that is not interested in a real and accountable budget. They do not make an issue of even millions of dollars of waste, fraud and abuse. For all their many Oversight Committees, it is Trump alone who is really battling for honesty and transparency. This Senate leadership was that way before Trump showed up. Do I wish President Trump had held his ground and said no? Oh yes. I am very disappointed. I am horrified that one lone Senator (Rand Paul, M.D.) was the only profile in courage Thursday night.

Sorry, #5, but the big difference is Obama never actually had a budget. He had 8 years of CR´s, and if you take his 2 years in the Senate too, it´s been 10 years since an Appropriations budget has been presented.

The current budget gets 60 days to work through appropriations process which Republicans have been pushing for 4 years now, but Democrats always say no because it will actually adjust spending instead of using the previous year´s spending, and adding COLA.

My big worry is the defense spending, and the likelihood much of it will end up in Democrat districts which they´ll get credit for. That the GOP wasn´t smart enough to ensure the spending projects end up more in GOP districts wherever possible. After all, the Dems forced their social spending which likely helps inner-city district which trend Dem.

Nothing will change until the grassroots call for a Convention of the States. At such a convention, link their pensions to the number of years they were in office during a balanced budget. Heck, link term limits to such a condition as well: The budget was balanced during your term in office? You get to run for another term.

Well, in the last three elections we voted in a House of Representatives, then voted in a Senate, and finally voted in a president. What did it get us? Trump has now said the solution to a balanced budget, etc is to vote in more Republicans in congress. Okay, I´m up for it, BUT only if Trump promises to lobby to help get rid of McConnell and Ryan in leadership and put in people from the Freedom Caucus. Those two are weak sisters.

Neither McConnell nor Ryan is going to go anywhere unless there are members of their respective legislative bodies willing to challenge them and have enough votes lined up to back up their bids. In the absence of that the only alternatives to McC and Ryan are Schumer and Pelosi.

And unless/until we as a people are willing to tackle the entitlements any curbs on federal spending will be cosmetic or temporary. For better and worse, this is the world we´ve created over the last 60 years or so.

Conservative Review, by Jen Kuznicki    Original Article

Hillary Clinton recently referred to the border crisis, in which adults are crossing the southern border with children, stating, “Jesus didn’t say, ‘Let the children suffer,’” recalling the verse, “Suffer the little children to come unto me.” She is not alone; many politicians like to quote Scripture to supposedly chide their opposition into being shamed for their actions or to make a religious case for government action. The fact that people of faith respond to those who espouse a mixture of faith and politics is a blessing, but it should not be abused. The concepts of religious liberty and of the

Legislators from both parties are raising their voices against the Trump administration policy separating undocumented migrant children from their parents when they cross the southern border. The policy has garnered intense and unified Democratic opposition, with all 48 of the party’s senators endorsing a bill, proposed by California Sen. Dianne Feinstein, to reverse the policy. A growing number of Republicans also have come out against the current conditions on the border, while largely avoiding placing blame directly on President Donald Trump or his administration.

Republican Senate candidate Mitt Romney called on the Trump administration Monday to stop separating immigrant families at the southern border, calling the controversy a “humanitarian crisis” that requires Congress to devise a permanent solution. Romney, the 2012 GOP presidential nominee, declined to blame President Trump or the Department of Homeland Security specifically in remarks to a group of voters at a park here. He called images of children separated from their parents “pretty disturbing” and “heartbreaking.” “I think immediately we should go back to the setting where we’re not ripping children away from their parents, and then we expect Congress to take

Former first lady Laura Bush tore into the Trump administration for separating migrant families at the border, calling the “zero tolerance” policy “cruel” and “immoral.” Bush penned an op-ed for the Washington Post, which was published Sunday night as public outcry over the hundreds of children in detention centers intensified. “I live in a border state,” Bush wrote. “I appreciate the need to enforce and protect our international boundaries, but this zero-tolerance policy is cruel. It is immoral. And it breaks my heart.” Bush’s commentary comes as more images and accounts from inside the detention centers have

“There is no Republican Party. There’s a Trump party,” John Boehner told a Mackinac, Michigan, gathering of the GOP faithful last week. “The Republican Party is kind of taking a nap somewhere.” Ex-Speaker Boehner should probably re-check the old party’s pulse, for the Bush-Boehner GOP may not just be napping. It could be comatose.

What’s Next for Conservatism

Conservatives tend to be skeptical of joining great political movements because they tend to be skeptical of both politics and movements that are great. They prefer the little platoon, the shire, which they know to be safe—or at least probably safer than what lies beyond. Not all politics may be local, but all politics that isn’t local tends toward the totalitarian, however far short of it it may actually fall. That sounds almost like a philosophy of government—though not a government that any American alive today has experienced. But times can change, and they have with the election of Donald Trump.

Salt Lake City - Mitt Romney, a candidate for U.S. Senate in Utah, is set to host his annual gathering of top Republicans, wealthy political donors and powerful business leaders. The guest list at the three-day, invitation-only event beginning Thursday in Park City, Utah, is largely under wraps, but Gov. Gary Herbert has it on his schedule. U.S. House Speaker Paul Ryan, who is addressing business leaders in the area at a separate event over the weekend, is also expected to attend the summit. The gathering at Stein Eriksen Lodge has traditionally been a summit of Romney allies closed to the public.

How many divisions does the Deep State have? During the so-called McCarthy era, a single question cut across all partisan and philosophical lines: Were you on Senator Joe McCarthy’s side or not? McCarthy’s conspiratorial, bullying, blunderbuss anti-Communism and “red-baiting” was either defensible or it wasn’t. Remarkably, for many on the right, the question of whether you were “with” McCarthy almost completely crowded out the question of whether or not you were right-wing or left-wing, Democrat or Republican, or even where you stood on the question of Communism itself. The pressing issue was whether McCarthy went too far

The boycott-Trump movement has resurged.

As a result, brands such as Nordstrom, Jet.com, and Gilt dropped Ivanka Trump´s fashion line last year. While Coulter has remained steadfast in her quest to encourage the other 62 retailers, nonprofits, and even a movie produced by Harvey Weinstein to ditch Trump products, the issue has peaked once more among consumers and

These are people who work for the president, of course, so they are essentially being taken to task for doing their jobs.
