crew-2231Comment by Jim Campbell, Citizen Journalist, Oath Keeper and Patriot.

It’s well past time that the voters in Boehner’s district in OH, vote him out of office completely.

There can be no more ominous sign that the Republicans are not serious about turning the country around when the dig in and support this loser. 

John Boehner is good for one thing, bending over and grabbing his ankles as the progressives see him as a weak crying sister and driving their agenda home.

Rep. John Boehner (R-Ohio) will run for Speaker again if Republicans win control of the Senate this fall, according to a survey of GOP lawmakers conducted by The Hill.

But if Democrats retain their Senate majority, all bets are off, the Republican lawmakers said.

Boehner’s future is a hot topic in the nation’s capital. The 64-year-old Speaker and his staffers have repeatedly insisted he isn’t retiring any time soon. They also point out that Boehner has filed to run for another term.But that hasn’t stopped the chatter.

The left in their twisted minds will blame guns, while those who are sane understand this was the result of another convert to Islam following the will of Mohammed and killing so-called infidels.

How difficult would it be to allow members of infantry units to keep their tool of the trade to protect themselves?

Remembering that guns don’t kill people but deranged people do this would just result in a chemical, biological or IED type attack.

Gunman reportedly among the fatalities

So the government authorized NSA to carry on clandestine activities against American Citizens.

In doing so they have violated the 4th and 14th Amendments to the U.S. Constitution.

Obama could care less he believes with his pen and a phone he makes the law, ergo, there is now seemingly one branch of government, the “Executive branch,” and of course the federal courts when he needs them. 

On your dime: Federal officials fly first class, use government jets for personal travel

crew-2231Comment by Jim Campbell, Citizen Journalist, Oath Keeper and Patriot.

When was the last time you flew First Class? Never?

What’s up with government officials flying on our dime?

Does this look like First Class to you?

For First Class Service, one must fly abroad and preferably not use a domestic carrier but the carrier of destination.

First Class seating on American carriers is little more than more sitting room and a meal, first class it is not.

Those who fly First Class are among the Elite, the Frequent Flyer and Businessman using upgrades.

Now we find that members of our government, elected and unelected are flying First Class, but not to worry it’s not their money it’s ours.

Under the radar: Federal officials are able to fly first class for everyday trips as a result of little transparency. As FBI director, Robert S. Mueller III (left) frequently used an executive jet purchased specifically for counterterrorism operations, according to a report last year by the Government Accountability Office.

Federal officials have no qualms flying the friendly skies in style, regularly using executive jets and other planes in the government’s fleet of 1,700 aircraft for everyday travel.

But they often don’t track how much such trips cost or the reasons why they skipped cheaper commercial flights in favor of firing up one of Uncle Sam’s aircraft.

And lawmakers in Congress — usually charged with overseeing or reining in such expenditures — have their own addiction to luxury travel with a growing tendency to fly first class.

Those findings by two separate watchdogs in Congress are the latest examples of a culture of entitlement that pervades federal spending, even in an era of supposed cutbacks and bulging budget deficits, critics warn.

“Secrecy of personal trips taken at taxpayer expense only serves to create a distrust of the federal government,” said Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa, the top Republican on the Senate Judiciary Committee and a frequent advocate of greater transparency and austerity in government.

This just in: Rand Paul wins 2014 CPAC straw poll, Ted Cruz finishes a distant second

Comment by Jim Campbell, Citizen Journalist, Oath Keeper and Patriot.

I’ve not been one for a third-party candidacy. 

Rand Paul

If  Senator Rand Paul runs as a Republican, he will energize the younger voter and much of the Republican base that sat out when Romney carried the Republican Banner. 

Had that base showed up in the last election Republicans would have won by 2 million votes. 

Should he run as a Libertarian and a third-party candidate, he splits the Republican party in half and would essentially give the Democrats the Presidency in 2017.

Having gone rogue and voting for Perot after Bush 41 lied about reading his lips; this is not the time to be wasting vote.

By Seth McLaughlin and Stephen Dinan

The Washington Times

Sen. Rand Paul demolished his competition in the 2014 Washington Times/CPAC presidential preference straw poll on Saturday, winning 31 percent of the vote — nearly three times the total of second-place Sen. Ted Cruz.

The poll also found a strong plurality of attendees at the Conservative Political Action Conference believe marijuana should be fully legalized, with 41 percent saying it’s time to change the law and tax it.

Another 21 percent said it should be legalized only for medicinal purposes, while just 31 percent said it should remain illegal in all cases.


SEE ALSO: CPAC 2014 straw poll results


In the presidential poll, Mr. Cruz’s 11 percent was a big improvement for the freshman senator, who won just 4 percent in last year’s straw poll. Neurosurgeon Ben Carson was third with 9 percent and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie was fourth with 8 percent in results that signal growing discontent with the GOP establishment in Washington.

Indeed, CPAC voters now have an unfavorable view of Republicans in Congress, with 51 percent saying they disapprove of the job the GOP is doing on Capitol Hill. Just last year the GOP had a 54 percent approval rating, and in 2012 they held a 70 percent approval rating.

Piers Morgan’s ‘threat’ gives gun owners brand new reason for excitement

crew-223Comment by Jim Campbell, Citizen Journalist, Oath Keeper and Patriot.

What ever happened to his whining about returning to England were he belongs?

131

It would be great to see the TSA advise him on check in that he was required to travel with an adult.

He has accomplished one thing with his idiotic beliefs, he has united all pro gun advocates and those who believe in defending the U.S. Constitution.

anti-gun-fanatic-piers-morgan-exploits-college-shooting

Piers Morgan, CNN’s resident imported anti-gun jihadist, is losing his prime time slot on the network, which, it would seem, is belatedly coming to realize that Morgan’s show’s dismal ratings are a terminal condition.

(Comment  directly below has nothing to do with his situation, Morgan couldn’t hit water if he fell out of a boat.)

Going head-to-head against Megyn Kelly’s program on FOX News, and even Rachel Maddow’s on MSNBC, has been an embarrassing debacle for Morgan, if not a humbling one.

This is of note to gun rights advocates, of course, because Morgan has, since at least the Sandy Hook Elementary atrocity in December 2012, been among the shrillest and most strident of voices for “gun control” (and competition for that “honor” is indeed fierce).

But this story isn’t over, Morgan warns gun rights advocates, taking to Twitter to tell the NRA that he is not “done with [them] yet”:

I wouldn’t get too excited @NRA - I’m not done with you yet.

That should answer any questions about the “if not a humbling one” characterization of his doormat-like performance in the ratings.

And actually, “excited” is perhaps just what the NRA and gun rights advocates should be over Morgan’s “not done with [them] yet” status. As gun rights advocate, pro-liberty firebrand, and perennial thorn in the collectivists’ side Mike Vanderboegh says in a post titled “Personally, I’m gonna miss him“:

Who will we get to take his place?

It’s a point Mr. Vanderboegh has made before, in “Hands off Piers Morgan! (He’s too useful an idiot to send back to England.)“:

As far as I’m concerned, we need to keep him right where he is, reminding American firearm owners with his outrageous disarmament advocacy just exactly why we had a Lexington and Concord in 1775.

Piers is the best advertisement for citizen disarmament lobby I can think of — from our point of view.

He’s ignorant, stupid, wholly uninformed, rude, and so full of himself that in his recent clash with Larry Pratt I actually thought he might explode.

He can’t fail to alarm and outrage American firearm owners every time he opens his mouth.

Thus, Piers is the best friend we’ve got in the national media, producing among traditional Americans a universal loathing and solidarity.

We may disagree on finer points of liberty, but we all agree that Piers is a disgusting shill for American collectivist tyranny. He’s too useful an idiot to send back to England.

Biden: Be Optimistic on State of the Nation ‘In Spite of Who’s President’

Comment by Jim Campbell, Citizen Journalist, Oath Keeper and Patriot.

mouthexplodesbiden2webcr-05_09_12The fool on the hill

Flying in on the “Noon Balloon From The Moon,” Joe Biden dropped in to bestow some of his usual “Wisdom” upon us.

By Eric Scheiner

(CNSNews.com) -Vice President Joe Biden told fellow Democrats they should be optimistic about the state of the nation, “in spite of who’s president.”

Biden was addressing the House Democratic Caucus Issues Conference in Cambridge, Md. on Friday when he discussed why he feels positive about America and the upcoming mid-term elections.

“It always surprises me when we don’t have the degree of optimism that we should about the state of the nation,” Biden said.

“And in spite of who’s president, in spite of who’s in the Congress, the American people are so much stronger, so much more resilient, so much more capable, that even the ridiculous policies of our friends on the right cannot keep them from moving forward.”

Later in his address, Biden discussed why he feels positive for Democrats in the upcoming elections. LOL!

Hypocrisy: Photo-ID required for NAACP rally but not at the polls?

crew-2231Comment by Jim Campbell, Citizen Journalist, Oath Keeper and Patriot.

Joseph+Stalin+and+Vladimir+LeninStalin                        Lenin

“It is enough that the people know there was an election. The people who cast the votes decide nothing. The people who count the votes decide everything.“~Joseph Stalin

What, hypocrisy and Democrats in the same sentence from the NAACP ?

MaryWhiteOvington

The NAACP was started in 1910 by socialist whites. Their original leader was Mary White Ovington a suffragette, socialist, Unitarian, journalist, and co-founder of the NAACP.

Do to the overwhelming power and money from lobbyists, and a corrupt federal court system not having a legal identification card makes the electoral process a further joke.

Taking it one step further, it would just lead to another underground business, making fake identification cards.

Participants in a march and rally sponsored by the NAACP got a list of “do’s and don’ts” when they assembled last week.

“DO wear a hat and very comfortable shoes” and “DO bring photo identification (driver’s license, passport or other valid photo ID) with you and keep it on your person at all times.”

Left off the list was “DO as we say, and DON’T do as we do.”

nc_naacp

This is the same outfit that is among the loudest and shrillest critics of the requirement in North Carolina and about three-dozen other states that voters must present identification with a photograph.

The NAACP insists this requirement is discriminatory, even though the requirement applies to everybody.

This annual North Carolina march has grown in importance and intensity among liberals since Republicans won the North Carolina governorship and a supermajority in the state’s General Assembly in 2012.

William J. Barber II, president of the state NAACP chapter, began organizing “Moral Monday” demonstrations last year to protest what he and others on the left call “immoral” legislation enacted by the state’s Republican-majority legislature, including common-sense abortion restrictions, reductions of unemployment benefits and an election-law overhaul that includes the voter-ID requirement.

The left has never raised objections to having to show an ID to buy tobacco or alcohol, to rent a car or a hotel room or to board an airliner.

Most Democrats don’t blink an eye at the government spending millions on “license checkpoints” where drivers who have done nothing wrong are required to stop at a roadblock and “show their papers,” such as they are.

But they won’t countenance a far less intrusive ID requirement in the interest of making sure that “one man, one vote” means exactly that.

For the NAACP, it’s more important that you are who you say you are when you participate in a political rally than when you show up to vote on Election Day.

It’s against this backdrop that Rep. F. James Sensenbrenner Jr., Wisconsin Republican, is working on legislation on Capitol Hill that would return to Attorney General Eric Holder Jr., the legal weapon the Supreme Court took away when it invalidated the so-called “preclearance” provisions of the 1965 Voting Rights Act.

Mr. Holder had used these provisions to punish states from Alabama and South Carolina to Arizona for making changes to their election laws to make sure that those who shouldn’t be voting, don’t. These states require no more than the NAACP does at its own rallies.
