Tea Party Members Break Reagan’s 11th Commandment to Ensure Constitutional Candidates

leave a comment »

In what normally would be a quiet primary season in red Congressional districts across the country, a few Republican candidates find themselves under a microscope when they expected to coast to an easy primary win. While some claim it’s a violation of Ronald Reagan’s 11th commandment, tea party conservatives sin, throwing out the 11th commandment, to ensure the most Constitutional solid candidate gets the party nomination.

This is apparent in Missouri’s Seventh Congressional District. A few weeks ago, it looked like republican candidate Billy Long would coast through the primaries. Long had a significant lead in fund raising as well as having the most recognized name in the race. However, a chance meeting last fall led to one tea party member waging a campaign against the leading Republican candidate in the race.

Clay Bowler, the blogger at Bungalow Bill’s Conservative Wisdom watched candidate Long approach closer to his place in line prior to Claire McCaskill’s town hall meeting in Springfield, Missouri. A small-business man went up to Long and asked him why he couldn’t get a small business loan after the banks got the TARP money to free up the credit markets. He wanted to know what Long was going to do to make sure he was going to get a loan for his small business.

Long began to pander to the man, explaining what he would do. When he was done, Bowler asked him what in the Constitution gave him the authority to tell this man that he would help him. Long answered there was nothing. Bowler fired back, so why are you telling this man this. Candidate Long walked off.

After the meeting, Bowler began to realize that candidate Long had a long record in the local media of contradicting the platform put on his page, so he decided to challenge Long using the power of the Internet. He started the Billy Long is Wrong Web site. The site looks at the candidate under an intensified scope and examines the concerns he has of the candidate. Since the site was introduced, momentum has shifted to the more conservative Constitutionalist candidates.

This is the reality of the tea party movement, which is tired of more of the same from candidates that claim they are conservative republicans. Many tea party activists are asking what they can do to raise awareness for candidates that care about the Constitution and the limits of government, and more are turning to the Web to combat moderate candidates who don’t want to live within the limits of the Constitution. You can’t claim you are against the bailouts and then tell constituents that you will help them get their fair share. You can’t claim you are against the stimulus and then look to see how many millions and billions you can bring to your district.

Left Coast Rebel is another tea party blog that is working to promote Constitutional conservatives while weeding out RINO candidates. LCR is examining districts around the United States putting up red flags for Republican candidates that are running with a big ‘R’ platform.

LCR has been vocal in expressing support for little ‘r’ republicans that want to enforce the limits of the federal government. Normally, he wouldn’t get involved in other districts, but he has determined too much is on the line this election not to be more active in the election.
So conservatives and Republicans are breaking Ronald Reagan’s 11th Commandment. It’s not too hard to imagine that if Reagan was here today, he would probably be speaking up against what has taken place in the Republican party these days.

Thank you for reading this blog.

They are doing it again: I told you so

leave a comment »

As most of my fellow rightlibertarianconservative bloggers have been railing against Diabolus Ex Machina (Even Chavez smells sulphur), The Grand Dragon Of Magic, Misdirection and Malefaction has been hard at work making sure that his agenda is successful. Has it been fruitful? Today we see that they passed a defense bill (and look who gets to spend it), with the capitulation of Leiberman and Nelson, now Reid has the votes for the “Healthcare” bill,  Obama sold our soul in Copenhagen (as he races home to a blizzard), because we only have 50 days to save the world, and the best that the right can do is have a readathon of the healthcare bill to slow it down. On top of this, Iran invades Iraq, while we are there mind you, and we do nothing. Talk about taking it in the back door. What side is this guy on?

In spite of what my cohorts say about “we’ll have a great 2010 and 2012”, I wish we would come to our senses and admit it, that we lost. We lost in 2008, and we’ve lost the idealogical battle on capitol hill. While we may win next year and in 2012, THERE HAS NEVER BEEN A PRECEDENT OF OVERTURNING ANY GOVERNMENT LARGESSE.

 The only way we can get beyond this is to come to our senses, admit reality, learn from it, and not repeat the same bullshit that Steele wants to perpetrate on us in the coming months. The GOP is feckless, and is rotten at the core. It’s needs a heart and brain transplant. and that needs to come from the Tea Party people and 912ers. The problem is the GOP is deadly afraid of the Tea Party people. I heard Craig Robinson of the Iowa Republican on the Steve Deace Show  say the he and the Iowa GOP wish the Tea Party people would go away and that they are too ideologically diverse to be republicans. What a pompous myopic ass. He likes his seat at the table, and the power that it gives those there. Unfortunately,  nothing will change if RINOs like these keep the power they have. The status quo hasn’t worked, the republicans gave the dems everything in 2006 and 2008 because of their fecklessness and I see no change if they get back in control next year. They are tax and spend moderates that want to give their special interests tax breaks and other perks. It’s time for an overhaul and just as the dems are doing things that will reek havoc on their gip on power, this does not mean there is a mandate for McLame republicans to do their moderate best. If you don’t believe me, look what a short time it took for the GOP to throw the socons under the bus after they got what they wanted and morover, before they were the GOP, they were the Whigs.

At this point, the best of all possibilities is that the Tea Party people take over the platform, agenda and direction of the GOP. It’s needed IF the GOP wants to remain the GOP. If not, the Tea Party people will supplant and replace the GOP, just as the GOP replaced the Whigs. We will see if the GOP leadership is as intransigent as I believe it is. Of course, what is a leader without a movement. While I have my reservations about Sarah, I can see her taking the reins with this. Of course the GOP will cry to the tune of 1912 with TR and the Bull Moose Party, but my narrative says it would be 1860 with the rising GOP ex Whigs. What do you think?

Senator Baucus Nominated His Concubine for US Attorney

leave a comment »

This hot of the press at Libertarian RepublicanGateway Pundit,  Left Coast Rebel and The Right Stuff.

Senate Finance Chairman Max Baucus’ office confirmed late Friday night that the Montana Democrat was carrying on an affair with his state office director, Melodee Hanes, when he nominated her to be U.S. attorney in Montana.

 According to a source familiar with their relationship, Hanes and Baucus began their relationship in the summer of 2008 – nearly a year before Baucus and his wife, Wanda, divorced in April 2009. The Senator had informally separated from his wife in March 2008 and they were living apart when he began dating Hanes, according to Baucus’ office.

Hanes ended her employment with Baucus in the spring of this year.

I wonder what kind of Healthcare Plan Max practiced on her?  I can only guess. May be he and Eldrick Woods exchanged trade secrets at the National Narcissistic Sociopaths Society convention this year. Whatever the case, Baucus is just one more hypocrite and sociopath elected to represent the american people.  When will Americans wake up and stop electing these assholes. My guess is never. Most people are either feckless, ignorant or stupid. Or just too busy over-scheduling their lives with non-sense. May be if we had a real depression, people would focus on what is truly important…May be not. May be people don’t know how to take care of themselves in adversity, and that is the problem, dependency.

Anyway, you have to wonder what Mrs Baucus thinks of all this. She can’t be too happy, but then again, most women who marry narcissists know what they have in a spouse.

Thank you for reading this blog.

Sunday Brunch With The Right Guy: The Inner Circle

The Knights Of The Right Roundtable



It’s Sunday, and it’s brunch time with The Right Guy and his fellow right knights of the right round table.

Eric at the Libertarian Republican has imbued us with the great news that folks in DC are watching us closely, I mean reading his blog with great affirmation and love. Yes  The Right Guy knows about it and yes Eric et al have some great things in store for all of our readers.

Tim over at LCR introduced us to his new sidekick, Wes at the Humble Libertarian. Wes is the newest member of the inner circle, and I invite all to check out his blog. He’s young, smart and top notch.

Clay over at Bungalow Bill’s is lamenting the sartorial expression of some celebutards at the Emmy Awards. Will Clay be the next Mr. Blackwell?

Nickie over at GNN, is trying to be funny with his Italian jokes. I never realized that Berlesconi was so short and man does Obama looked pissed.

Today’s Brunch was short, as The Right Guy has to cut back right now, and there is much, much more to come.

Thank you for reading this blog and go Yankees! They clinched!

The Knights Of The Right Roundtable



It’s Sunday, and it’s brunch time with The Right Guy and his fellow right knights of the right round table.

Lets start with Bungalow Bill also known as Clay Bowler. When he’s not commenting on the somethign to do with the Beatles, he always has a fair word to say something about our feckless leader and his minions. His latest commentary on the socio-sartorial escapades of Mobama leaves no stone unturned.
Not to be left out, the good Dr. Dave at Feed Your ADHD, had more cutting comments than even The Right Guy. Go Dr. Dave.
Missing from this weekend’s fashion fest was Nickie Goomba. Wherefore art thou Nickie, when we need you?
Over at Land Shark 5150, Land Shark was bubbling over with respect and admiration of the greatest civil right leader of the 19th century (may be extant in this country), the inestimable Frederick Douglass.
Tim over at LCR is also giving like shoutouts to his peeps, and is the inspiration for mine.
And what would any day be without the prolific and profound Libertarian Republican? Eric “The Dynamo” Dondero is currently defending liberty from every direction with his defense of Peter Schiff , who is taking hits not only from every side, but from the church, writing obvious exposés of why we voted for McCain, and reporting on the efforts to repeal the legal drinking age of 21.
The best slogan of the week goes to Smitty, the pseudo-ersatz Stacy McCain at The Other McCain. How can you beat the reaper is cheaper?

Coming round the bend of the table back to me, we have the erudite Dr. John R. Lott, whose vigilance in defending our second amendment rights is second to none, but this weekend, we find him investigating campaign finance reform and the corruption of ACORN.
Missing from this table is Bug, who seems to have lost heart in the blogging pursuits. Where are you Bug?
Lastly, we have William and Chuck cheering from the sidelines as always. Did I mention Black and Gold Fan?
Thank you for reading this blog and have a relaxing Sunday before reurning to the Fabric Covered Box at work.

John Mackey Stirs The Pot

leave a comment »

John Mackey, CEO of Whole Foods wrote an article in the WSJ that began with the Margaret Thatcher quote “The problem with socialism is that eventually you run out

of other people’s money.” What should be instructive about that quote is that in spite of Thatcher being a staunch conservative and anti-socialist, she was never able to get socialism out of England, but I am digressing. John Mackey jumped from the frying pan into the fire with that article because a lot of his customers are progressive socialist eviro-weenies. He made the mistake of pissing some of them off. What is illustrative here is that in spite of him showing an alternative plan to Obama’s that didn’t include a government sponsored option, they crucified him as if he said everyone should die now. What these progressive enviro-terrorist socialist-fascist monkeys have proved is that they are statists. Why? Because they need to power of the government to enforce their ideas. This is so because their ideas are not supported by the facts, and what we observe. Their ideas fail in practicum.


From what I can tell Mr. Mackey is a small c capitalist and libertarian. He also is a businessman and wants to make a profit, but treat his employees fairly. I think he is on the right track, and his honesty is refreshing. So, I contend that if he loses business from the sandals and veggie burger crowd, the good people that truly appreciate freedom will fill the vacuum. To that effect, I say shop at Whole Foods, as your business will help support a businessman that respects freedom and wants to promulgate freedom. Way to go Mr. Mackey.

And to the Left Coast Rebel: You beat me to writing about this article, but I can’t publish from work. It’s too risky. Good show.

Thank you for reading this blog.
