Senator Ted Cruz received an 8-minute standing ovation when he returned to Texas today. Let the left and the only-slightly-right establishment yap on. We have Defending Fathers and Mothers out there. Cruz has been Palinized, and like Sarah, he doesn’t give a fruity fig. Senator Mike Lee (R-UT) stood with Cruz and spoke like a true statesman on Obamacare every time I heard him speak. Lee had a great interview with Rush Limbaugh. Read portions of it here. He hasn’t waivered. Senator Jim Inhofe (R-OK) and Rep. Jim Bridenstine (R-OK) did not waiver. It’s our job to support them and many others that I can’t mention here today. The photos below, some you may not recognize, are only a few of those who voted ‘no’ to continue the fight to achieve something productive before signing the Continuing Resolution and putting another Trillion-plus in Obama’s pocket. Establishment Republicans were fine with nothing.
L-R Top Row: Senators Ted Cruz (R-TX), Mike Lee (R-UT) Jim Inhofe (R-OK) Second Row: Reps. Louie Gohmert (R-TX), Jim Bridenstine (R-OK), James Lankford (R-OK) Third Row: Reps. Michelle Bachmann (R-Minn), Marsha Blackburn (R-TN), Diane Black (R-TN) Fourth Row: Reps. Renee Ellmers (R-NC), Kay Granger (R-TX), Vicky Hartzler (R-MO) (Senator Inhofe did not vote due to heart surgery but vigorously defended Cruz and Lee)
Cruz was greeted with an eight-minute standing ovation in an appearance organized by the Texas Federation of Republican Women. People in attendance, many of them wearing red to show their support for keeping Texas a conservative-leaning state, lined up to greet him. . . .
“We saw what can happen when the American people unite, when the American people stand up,” he said. “What the American people want is economic growth and job creation. They are crying out for something that fixes all the enormous damage that Obamacare is causing.” Source: Yahoo News
The remainder of the Yahoo article went on to chronicle how John McCain and Democrats blasted Cruz and others for doing what they were voted into office to do. Sure they did.
For the third time today I’ve seen stories using the words, “Communism,” Marxism, or “Lenin.” Then I found “Stalin,” “Hitler,” “Castro,” “Pol Pot” and “Mugabe.” This caught my attention after spending much of last night devouring Trevor Loudon’s new book The Enemies Within.
Doug Ross reminds us that if we are “thinking of sitting things out in 2014” we must come to terms with another Nancy Pelosi speakership and be up for the fight of our lives, literally, to keep our gun rights. We could lose that fight. It’s a reality. You surely understand how things work today and you know who the reality-ignorant are in the Republican Party.
For the first time in American history, mainstream Democrats are openly calling for the arrests of their
political opponents. Yes, the hard left Democrat Party’s tactics come straight out of the playbooks of Lenin, Stalin, Hitler, Castro, Pol Pot, and Mugabe.
They will be coming for anyone who expresses dissent against their Marxist policies, but before they do, they’ll be coming for your guns.
If Democrats regain control of the House, rest assured that your Second Amendment rights will be eviscerated as they very nearly did following the mass shooting by the lunatic in Sandy Hook. Dianne Feinstein — the loathsome and brazen crook from California — had her gun ban bill in place, just waiting for a nice, bloody tragedy to exploit.
These are some truly frightening portents. Read them at Doug Ross’ place.
Reading Trevor Loudon’s book, The Enemies Within, gives a clear and footnoted understanding of the part unions play in American elections and the transformational change that we see happening in here today:
All the major international communist fronts created by the Soviets in the 1940s and 50s — World Peace Council, World Federation of Trade Unions, Women’s International Democratic Federation, World
Federation of Democratic Youth and International Association of Democratic Lawyers . . . are still promoting the communist “line” wherever they can. . . .
As Lenin said of trade unions — they are the “transmission belts from the Communist Party to the masses.” Communist control of the labor movement is the key to the implementation phase of communist policy infiltration into Western countries.
Every major communist party does its level best to take over the local labor movement. There are several reasons for this, but the most important and overlooked one is this . . . Every mainstream left wing party in the Western democracies is dominated by the labor movement. The Unions fund these parties; contribute manpower at election time and bloc vote at their conferences. Labor unions effectively dominate every major left win political party in every major and most minor, Western countries.
What the Communist Party wants today, the Labor Party will implement tomorrow. And the vast bulk of the voting public and will have no idea that the policies they are voting for originated in Moscow, Havana, Beijing, or in local Communist Party headquarters.
This process has been carried out countless times all over the world.
Loudon says it wasn’t easy bringing the Communist Party agenda to bloom in the U.S., but Labor finally made it happen:
…the left took over the U.S. labor movement in 1995 and installed Democratic Socialists of America member John Sweeney as President of the AFL-CIO. . . . The next step was to remove the clause from the AFL-CIO constitution banning communists from holding office in AFL-CIO affiliated unions. . . .
That is why the move to U.S. socialism has gone into overdrive since the Democrats took power in 2008. Trevor Loudon, The Enemies Within
The Service Employees International Union (SEIU) plays a huge part in our elections today. The SEIU is the largest union in the U.S. Members work everywhere – in hotels, motels, hospitals, nursing homes, restaurants. You can’t go a full day without interacting with an SEIU member unless you don’t leave your domicile, maybe the pool boy. Ask him. They are organized and they work only for leftists – or more accurately, the leftist work for them and their votes. The SEIU tightly embraces legalization for illegal aliens. The agenda is that of the Communist Party USA and Democratic Socialists of America. This is the long-range Communist agenda, designed many years ago, coming to fruition today in the U.S. beginning in 1995 – not all that long ago; the Oklahoma City Bombing happened in 1995 and O.J. Simpson was acquitted of murder. I doubt many union members understand where their leadership is taking them.
The jewel of the book is the discussion by name of the
Socialists, Communists and Progressives in the U.S. Congress. Buy Trevor’s book at The Pacific Freedom Foundation, or at Amazon (no, I don’t make a dime for the referral).
