GOP

Wipe that smug look off your face, or a Tomahawk missile will do it for you!

A Louisiana Republican congressman took to Facebook to show his anger towards radical islamic terrorists; calling for terrorists to be wiped off the face of the earth, no matter where they are and which country they belong to.

Representative Clay Higgins posted a statement on Facebook, which has since received over a thousand comments and about 3000 reactions. He wrote:

“The free world… all of Christendom… is at war with Islamic horror. Not one penny of American treasure should be granted to any nation who harbors these heathen animals. Not a single radicalized Islamic suspect should be granted any measure of quarter. Their intended entry to the American homeland should be summarily denied. Every conceivable measure should be engaged to hunt them down. Hunt them, identify them, and kill them. Kill them all. For the sake of all that is good and righteous. Kill them all.”

Higgins, locally popular as “Cajun John Wayne,” is a former police chief. He has also hosted crime shows in the past, where he called criminals “thugs,” “animals” and “heathens.”

When Higgins resigned from his position in law enforcement, he said Jesus was the reason behind his decision.

“I begin each day on bended knee, but I kneel to our savior,” Higgins said in 2016 when announcing his resignation from the police force. “I will not kneel to violent street gangs, I will not kneel to murderers or the parents who raised them. I will not kneel to a discredited wannabe black activist that doesn’t really have the best interest of his people in mind. I will not kneel to bureaucrats from Washington, Baton Rouge or anywhere else. I would die rather than sacrifice my principles. If I would sacrifice my life for my principles, surely you understand I must sacrifice my job.”

In a statement to Baton Rouge’s The Advocate, the congressman refused to back down from his comments and elaborated on what he intended to say by “kill them all.”

“We are a world at war,” he said. “The enemy is radicalized Islamic jihadists. The terrorists certainly take advantage of the politically correct madness that consumes the West.”

He further added that there are many people in the west who are “frightened to speak freely.” He continued, saying that he’s never been politically correct and that he calls “things the way I see them.”

“The meaning of candid speech is frequently mischaracterized or misunderstood,” he noted. “This is about prioritizing national security and protecting American lives. Every measure must be taken to eliminate radical Islamic terrorism and the threat it poses to the free world. My only concern is protecting the people that live in my district, my state, and my country. We must stand strong against radical Islamic terror. The fate of the free world will be determined by the courageous, not by the intimidated.”

Sorry. Can't be seen with that dude.

While on a field trip to Washington DC on Thursday, around 100 eighth-graders refused to take a picture with Paul Ryan, the Republican House Speaker.

The students belonged to South Orange Middle School in South Orange, New Jersey. A local TV station described the town as “a progressive, upper middle class community.”

A total of around 200 students travelled to Washington DC, where they only found out a night before their scheduled visit to Capitol Hill that they would be meeting the man who is third in line to the presidency. What many would consider to be an opportunity of a lifetime, half the students considered to be an embarrassment of sorts.

Matthew Malespina was one of the students who opted out of the picture session. He also texted his mother as soon as he found out.

“I’m just not going to do it,” Matthew told his mom, Elissa Malespina, in a text message.

A public school librarian, who wasn’t present on the field trip, Ellisa Malespina replied, “Say you would rather not.”

She later turned to Facebook, where she reportedly bragged about her son’s decision.

“I’m proud of him, and I’m proud of the other students that chose to exercise their constitutional rights and did so in a respectful manner,” Elissa Malespina wrote.

Matthew Malespina is of the belief that “it’s not just a picture,” when it comes to getting the chance to appear with an elected official.

“It’s being associated with a person who puts his party before his country,” he said. “The point was, I don’t want to be associated with him, and his policies and what he stands for.”

Around 100 students, including Matthew, stood across the street, refusing to take the picture as the other 100 posed with Paul Ryan on the steps of the US Capitol. According to a local news outlet, Ryan had absolutely no idea that only half the students were taking the picture with him.

A spokesman for Paul Ryan, while speaking to the Washington Post on Sunday, said that the House Speaker “always appreciates the opportunity to welcome students to the Capitol.”

Wait until he gets to Congress.

After winning a special election, Greg Gianfonte is on his way to the US House of Representatives as a Montana Republican. The election, however, came under intense scrutiny after Gianfonte assaulted a reporter the night before the opening of the polls. Late Thursday night, Gianfonte, in his victory speech, apologized to the reporter by name, and also to his supporters.

“Last night I learned a lesson,” Gianforte told supporters. “No, please, I need to share something from my heart here,” he calmed the room, “I just ask you to bear with me.”

“And when you make a mistake,” he continued, “you have to own up to it. That’s the Montana way.”

“Last night I made a mistake,” he said, to more laughter, “I took an action that I can’t take back. And I’m not proud of what happened. I should not have responded in the way that I did.

“And for that I’m sorry,” he added, to thunderous applause.

“I should not have treated that reporter that way. And for that, I’m sorry Mr. Ben Jacobs.”

“I also want to apologize for the Fox News team that was there. And I’m sorry to each one of you, that we had to go through this. That’s not the person I am, and it’s not the way I’ll lead in this state.

“Rest assured, our work is just beginning. But it does begin, with me taking responsibility for my own actions. You deserve a congressman who stays out of the limelight, and just gets the job done.”

The special election had already been under intense watch as a harbinger for the upcoming midterm elections, but the attack made it difficult for electoral experts and analysts, as it’s unclear what effect it had on the elections. For the violent incident where witnesses say he grabbed Ben Jacobs by the throat, pushed him to the floor and punched him, Gianfonte was handed a misdemeanor assault charge.

A few conservatives, including Rush Limbaugh, jokingly said about the incident that maybe an attack on a reporter would help any candidate win in Montana. However, others, like Don Lemon of CNN, rebuked President Trump, saying his constant attacks on the press have created a toxic atmosphere which may have encouraged the attack.

Con Man Paul Ryan presenting ObamaCare 2.0 to President Trump

Across the country, from the top of the ticket to the bottom of any federal race, Republican politicians promised the repeal of ObamCare.

When they rolled out their plan to “repeal and replace” the Affordable Care Act on Monday, it was clear . . . they lied.

If you read the first page, specifically the first paragraph, you’ll see that the Affordable Care Act (ObamaCare), “is amended.”

Let me make this clear: this is no repeal of the ObamaCare monstrosity.

In addition to House conservatives, Americans for Prosperity, Liberty Guard, Heritage Action, Freedom Works and the Cato Institute have all come out swinging against the plan.

Cato Scholar Michael Cannon put it best, “The House Republican leadership bill does not replace ObamaCare. It merely applies a new coat of paint to a building that Republicans themselves have already condemned.”

Paul Ryan and his establishment lackeys are not only amending the ACA, they are expanding it by creating more entitlements to the public and the states.

Personally, it is shocking that Paul Ryan could be either this dumb, or this arrogant . . . or worse.

And we know that Ryan isn’t dumb.

While his arrogance is a given, you don’t make moves like this without a Machiavellian purpose.

Please let me explain.

It’s clear that Ryan and Republican leaders have convinced President Trump that this is the right way to go.

How did they do it?

While Donald Trump has many strengths, he was one significant weakness: he chooses not to read.

He admits to making decisions “with very little knowledge other than the knowledge I had, plus the words ‘common sense’.”

Trump has historically relied on hiring good people, and when they don’t do what they say they’ll do, he fires them.

Easy stuff and a known factor with the President.

And Paul Ryan took advantage of that weakness knowing he would not read the new health care bill.

Here’s what likely happened when Trump met with Ryan and other authors of ObamaCare 2.0:

President Trump: Do you have it ready?

Speaker Ryan: Yes Mr. President, and you’re going to love it.

President Trump: Good, good. Will it lower costs, kill ObamaCare taxes and open competition?

Speaker Ryan: Of course Mr. President, we eliminate all ObamaCare taxes and subsidies and the American people will spend less while getting better care.

President Trump: Great job. Let’s get it passed in record time. Just let me know what you need.

Speaker Ryan: Yes, Mr. President [the speaker slinks out of the Oval Office].

When it comes to Washington politics, Trump is a neophyte. And that’s why he was elected. Americans were near the brink of societal breakdown due to their hatred of Washington politicians like Ryan.

And now we see why.

But that’s no excuse for Trump and his team.

He hasn’t just been betrayed by Paul Ryan who clearly lied to him about the contents of this bill, Trump’s staff failed to catch and stop this attempt to undermine Trump’s integrity in the eyes of the American people.

Paul Ryan knew exactly what he was doing. If you watched his press conference announcing the plan, Ryan started out by giving credit to both “President Trump and Vice President Pence” for making this happen.

Slimy Ryan wants this failure to be known as “TrumpCare” and with those too busy to know the difference, it’s working.

President Trump will be best served by tweeting: “Paul Ryan and GOP lied to me about new bill. I demand complete repeal! No more games!”

Then he needs to fire those in his White House who were tasked with vetting this bill along with this spokespeople like Spicer and Conway who failed to do their homework before participating in this con.

Most importantly, Donald Trump cannot forget this and when it comes to the next election cycle, he needs to start campaigning for a clean sweep of Congress.

Jeb Bush

Just 13 months ago, Jeb Bush was leading the polls for the GOP nomination for president. That was before Donald Trump went on the attack.

Donald came and said he was going to build a wall, and the rest is history. Trump won the nomination and Jeb is breaking his silence after a crushing defeat.

Jeb Bush didn’t even finish in the top five of the GOP candidates and has not done any press since Donald Trump stopped another Bush from becoming president, until now.

Jeb Bush decided to go on camera with MSNBC, of all media outlets, to discuss he feelings about Donald Trump.

The son and brother of a president said that he would not be voting for Donald Trump and he can’t vote for Hillary. He said he would feel “sad” if Hillary became the president this fall, but he would also be “worried” if Trump won.

Who is left for him to vote for? Gary Johnson? Doubtful, it looks like Bush is going to stay home in November. He isn’t going to even vote. No wonder he didn’t make it out of the primaries.

Jeb Bush says that Trump won’t build the wall and Mexico isn’t going to pay for it. He said that Muslims won’t be banned and all of Trump’s fans are going to “feel betrayed”.

Bush is sounding like a bitter man right now. This time last year he was leading the polls for the nomination and now he, on the most liberal network on cable news, is talking about how bad Trump is and how the former Florida governor won’t even vote. Who is he trying to win over?

Jeb wouldn’t have broken his silence now if he didn’t have a plan, but what is it? He doesn’t plan on going to the GOP convention, he doesn’t plan on endorsing Trump and he doesn’t plan on voting in November. What are he and the establishment up to?

Watch the interview for yourself and decide if Jeb Bush is acting like a crybaby or if he has some master plan to take down Trump somehow.

Is Jeb being a crybaby or is this all part of his master plan? Do you think that Trump will be able to build the wall? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.

colorado

The simple answer is no. Ted Cruz followed the rules and has a very solid campaign and he made sure he did what was necessary to win the delegates.

Trump still says it is rigged. They both might be right. Cruz did nothing wrong in Colorado to get all the delegates, but Trump does have a point.

Take a look at this video and see what the voting process for delegates is really like in Colorado.

Colorado’s process is unlike any other state.

What do you think, is it a good one? Do you like how Colorado does their delegate distribution, or is the system rigged so that normal people’s votes don’t count?

Let us know in the comments.

Do you think the GOP should nominate someone or should Donald Trump’s millions of votes count for something?

In a recent interview, the Republican frontrunner for the presidential nomination started opening up to his thoughts on having a brokered convention.

Donald Trump says that the millions of people who voted him should mean something to the Republican National Committee.

If Donald Trump fails to get the 1,237 delegates before the convention, do you think the GOP should ignore his voters and nominate someone else?

GOP Establishment

Rather than put efforts into unifying the party and taking on the growing threat from presumptive DNC nominee Hillary Clinton, the GOP Establishment and its donors have decided to place its full focus into destroying Donald Trump.

The move is literally insane, but not unexpected coming from the same people who bowed down to Obama on so many occasions just to motivate voters on Election Day.

The Establishment is nuts.

This morning, Tim Miller took to the cable networks to brand Trump as a racist for not denouncing David Duke and the KKK, despite Trump doing so repeatedly without equivocation.

Toothy Tim Miller is the former communications director for Jeb Bush and the new spokesman for the anti-Trump super PAC, Our Principles PAC.

The PAC was funded by establishment backers Meg Whitman, and billionaires Todd Rickets and Paul Singer. Singer is a hedge fund manager and major donor to Republicans.

The clear strategy is to tag Trump with a “racist” label and disqualify him for the presidential nomination through convention parliamentary antics.

That strategy is suicidal against Hillary who will be provided with an endless amount of ammunition against Trump in the General Election.

You can hear Hillary now, behind the podium and backed by a minority crowd, “His own people . . . RESPECTED REPUBLICANS . . . say Trump is a racist!”

Our Principles PAC will spend heavily to brand Trump with the political death label “racist”, but in turn will give Hillary and every Democrat candidate running in 2016 and beyond the ability to label the entire Republican field as belonging to the “party of racism and bigotry.”

And that’s the plan of the GOP Establishment.

They will use the tactics of “white guilt” against their own delegates and force them to make this decision: Nominate a racist and watch the ENTIRE party die, or dump Trump and carry on with business as usual.

Make no mistake, the members of the Establishment are so desperate to maintain their power within the GOP that they’re willing to not only burn their own party, but elect Hillary Clinton as our next president.

I Voted For Trump

Why in the world would a libertarian vote for Donald Trump? As Ron Paul wailed on CNN on Super Tuesday, Trump “represents the opposite of Liberty!”

I don’t disagree.

Donald Trump also represents the opposite of Washington.

When I first started my career in D.C., I was a young and naive idealist wearing a uniform and serving as a United States Marine.

During my last year on Active Duty, working in the Judge Advocate Division, I was in charge of reporting cases of officer misconduct . . . and boy I had my hands on countless salacious stories that the media would have drooled over.

At night, I was able to comb through the original Service Record Books of the most notorious Marines . . . from Charles Whitman to Lee Harvey Oswald.

But the biggest scandal I witnessed during my time was the scandal that took place in the White House.

As I tracked and reported cases of misconduct, I kept a tally. Over 75% of my active cases were for the offenses of adultery and fraternization . . . the exact offenses our Commander-in-Chief at the time was guilty of.

As good officers were literally doing time in the brig for their lack of judgment, Bill Clinton was kicking back in the White House.

Following my time in the long hallways of Headquarters Marine Corps, I ended up working in the lobbying office for one of the nation’s largest oil companies.

One day, my boss asked me to sit in for him at a meeting with the other oil lobbyists and I arrived the next morning to a scene straight out of Hollywood.

Not long after I entered the dark, wood-lined conference room filled with a variety of “old boy” characters sitting around a massive table, the leader of the discussion crowed, “Who is going to put money into Hastert’s pocket?”

His tone shifted to urgent as he cried, “We’re falling down as an industry guys!”

As one lobbyist after another pledged to divert funds to buy influence, I sank further into my seat.

Knowing how Washington works is one thing, seeing it take place before your eyes is another.

As I made it back to my office, I shot off an email offering to stuff envelopes for a government watchdog group and weeks later, they hired me as a director which started my lengthy career in fighting government for a living.

Since I made it to D.C. twenty-three years ago, I’ve had a front row seat to witness an endless parade of corruption and hypocrisy, not just within government, but within the consultant and political class that surrounds it.

As Marty Huggins would say, “Folks, bring your brooms, ‘cause it’s a mess!”

And that’s a gross understatement.

Washington is a freaking cesspool filled with pseudo-intellectuals and con men looking to buy and sell each other. The smart ones do it for money; the dumb ones do it for social standing that they define as “power.”

The scandals that are buzzed about from time to time about law breaking or ethics violations are nothing compared to the legal corruption that takes place daily . . . and it involves just about everyone that’s inside the beltway, not just the politicians who are the target of our anger.

That’s where Donald Trump comes in.

Trump is not part of the political class and never will be. More importantly, the success of his campaign has made complete clowns of the candidates, consultants and election experts who were previously held in high regard.

The brash billionaire is able to accomplish something that no one has been able to come close to since Washington left office . . . he’s breaking down the political machine, and more specifically, the Grand Old Party.

In his farewell address published in 1796, George Washington warned the nation of the “baneful effects of the spirit of the party.”

Few listened to him and the tools in power today from Mitch McConnell to Lindsey Graham to the neo-con clowns of the National Review, have clearly not taken a moment to sit back and understand that political parties do not deserve loyalty . . . principles demand loyalty and the GOP along with so-called “conservatives” have no firm principles.

When it comes to ideological grounding, the GOP, the conservative movement and, yes, even Donald Trump do not know who they are.

They have not explored the principles of Liberty to set aside party lines and trust in individuals rather than government.

When an individual lacks a foundation of beliefs, they quickly sink into the quagmire of mass opinion and outside influence for gain.

When beliefs are formed on a foundation of Liberty, there is never a doubt. The only question is “how do we get there?”

Liberty is a mountain made of granite. Mere men can’t break, move it or ignore it. When your eyes are open to these principles, you can’t even really argue with yourself.

As one libertarian activist, Ernie Hancock, says, “Freedom is the answer. What’s the question?”

So when an opportunity comes about to destroy or at least change the Republican Party and the Washington Establishment, hell yes, I’m taking it.

Make no mistake; I have high confidence that when Donald Trump takes the GOP nomination, he will be able to beat Hillary Clinton . . . despite what the polls may say.

But my decision was not based upon the outcome of the election; it was based upon the devastation Donald Trump will lay upon various arms of the government, the Washington Establishment and Congress. “President” Trump will serve as a spark to burn the whole thing down, and a controlled-burn is long overdue.

As for me, I’d rather take a shot at starting over then endure another eight years of ruin due to spineless and self-serving elites who demand our respect.

I’d rather hand the reigns of government over to a drunk monkey with a butcher knife than allow another bullshit politician to sit in our White House.

Today, Donald Trump was my drunk monkey. I’ll bring the butcher knife.

2016 GOP

Liberty Guard, founded by former Congressman Bob Barr, released their ratings recently that ranked each presidential candidate based upon a Liberty index.

Included in the scorecard are 17 candidates in total — 14 Republicans and 3 Democrats.

The GOP candidates include: Donald Trump, Carly Fiorina, Former Governor Jeb Bush (FL), Dr. Ben Carson, Senator Rand Paul (KY), Senator Ted Cruz (TX), Governor Chris Christie (NJ), Governor John Kasich (OH), Former Governor Mike Huckabee (AR), Senator Marco Rubio (FL), Former Governor George Pataki (NY), Former Governor Jim Gilmore(VA), Former Senator Rick Santorum (PA), and Senator Lindsey Graham (SC).

The Democratic candidates include: Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Senator Bernie Sanders (I-V), and Former Governor Martin O’Malley (MD). The complete scorecard may be found at www.libertyguard.org.

The scoring model examined each of the candidates on public statements, announced platforms/plans, and their voting record (either as an incumbent or past political service). In each of the categories: healthcare, national security, taxation, immigration, electronic privacy, 2nd Amendment, cronyism, budget, education, and ethics; liberty-minded sub-topics were used as the judging criteria.

Most notably (and unlike any other scorecard so far),Liberty Guard rated candidates on cronyism and ethics.

In releasing the scorecard, Liberty Guard Chairman Bob Barr emphasized, “The American people are tired of Beltway insiders and their cronyism. The scorecard is a reliable, unbiased way to see how the candidates stack up, issue by issue, on liberty-related topics.”

Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX), and Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) both outperformed their respective GOP counterparts by advocating and fighting for limited government and liberty-minded principles based on the Constitution. At the bottom of the list includes Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and Former Governor Jeb Bush (R-FL).

“This scorecard is the first of its kind — ranking candidates on liberty matters, taking into account all a candidates’ past statements and positions as well as votes. This comprehensive effort will inform voters decisions as they sort out the wheat from the chaff,” Liberty Guard President Steve Thomas added. “The typical establishment candidates that would be flourishing in past elections are now suffering. Voters are making this ever more evident by citing their distaste for ‘career politicians.'”
