  • About That Omnibus Spending Bill…

    Posted by Michael Hiteshew on December 18th, 2015 (All posts by )

    I guess we’ll need to keep replacing R’s and D’s with Tea Partiers until there’s too few of The Beholden to do this any longer. It’s gonna be a long fight.

    And after passing that bill yesterday, I received this email today:

    PaulRyanEmail

    It included a link to this video:

    The email also links to Speaker Ryan’s website, where the email and video are posted, and where the comments appear uniformly negative. There exists the very same disconnect and denial of reality between what’s written at the top of this email, and the Omnibus Bill, as can be found in any speech by Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton.

    It is a new day in the people’s House. ~Paul Ryan

      No Sir.

      That’s denying facts as blunt and repeated as being battered by a Hammer.

      Washington is lost to the country and a purely predatory and hostile entity. Ryan and the rest including TP cannot do other than they are doing nor will they change with 100% TP.

      Far from being a long fight they are simply cashing out all the chips they can lay their hands on as they sense this part at least is ending.

      Congress’s remaining power of the purse is stealing for themselves and they are.

      We have limited electoral input as voters. We pick the following essential remaining officials: 1] Commander in Chief of National Force [POTUS].
      2] Local Law Enforcement Command of Mayor in local city, 3] County Sheriff 4] State Governors who command National Guard.

      Those offices control State instruments of force in our lives and there our votes count. Literally Life or Death.

      We are not talking our way out of this, the sooner that’s faced the better.

    2. Mrs. Davis Says:

      It’s good to know there is someone more cynical than I. Though I do agree with Vxxc2014 that we aren’t talking our way out of this, I also agree with Michael that the only way out is to vote our way out of it.

    3. TMLutas Says:

      Nobody, but nobody knows all the pressure points because nobody’s identified them. The machine is too complex and those on top imagine that nobody will go to the trouble of mapping their networks all out like the FBI does mafia families and then taking the whole thing apart piece by piece.

      I hope that there is still time to talk our way out but if there isn’t, we can at least start the intelligence operations to weaken them for when we all run out of words. The right moves currently are the same moves no matter the end game.

      So let’s dance.

    4. Phil Ossiferz Stone Says:

      Yes, it is a new day. And soon, to be a new year.

      And the kettle of our discontent is boiling nicely.

      Stockpile.

    5. Subotai Bahadur Says:

      I am known in other venues for a certain facility with cursing in other languages. And Paul “Dhemkrati al-Spendi” voluntarily and openly becoming functionally the Democrat Speaker of the House exhausted my abilities in that sphere.

      Noting that more than half the Republicans voted for this abomination, and even more Democrats did, that the Democrats got everything that they wanted [and more as we are still finding out what is in it] and all the Republicans claimed to have gotten was the right to sell oil overseas [into the worst oil market in a generation] which still can be stopped with a stroke of Obama’s pen under other laws, and a 7% cut in the contribution to the UN [which can and will be reversed with a supplemental appropriation]. And that part of the deal made in those private dinners with Pelosi included a vote in Congress to have the taxpayers bail out bankrupt Puerto Rico in January. I have yet to see if the bill by Debbie Wasserman-Schulz to have the Treasury pay for [only] the Democrat National Convention was included, but I see no reason to assume it isn’t.

      I agree with vxxc2014 Says: December 18th, 2015 at 6:47 am, most of TMLutas Says:December 18th, 2015 at 1:04 pm, and Phil Ossiferz Stone Says:December 18th, 2015 at 3:48 pm. There is no time remaining to vote anyone in, let along to organize a nationwide real political party in favor of the Constitution. If we even have elections in 2016, which point the Bi-Partisan Governing Party may have something to say about.

      Early next year is going to be interesting in the Chinese sense. The raise in interest rates is going to trigger economic chaos. There will be more and deadlier terrorist attacks. Every prerequisite for a state of emergency will be there.

      Look at what has happened in the last several days and convince me that except for Cruz and Trump, the Republican Party would not gladly accept a subsidiary position in a “Temporary Government of National Unity” until things calm down enough for them to decide elections are safe.

      Pitchforks and tar should be selling well in Wisconsin soon.

      Ryan is such a disappointment.

      St. Bnot,

      Personally I think they’ve definitely got something on him and as body obsessed and narcissistic as Ryan is I can guess.

      Without animus towards that group.

    10. vxxc2014 Says:

      We are not talking our way out of this.

      However to amplify earlier comments yes the vote is Vital in the below elections because they command the instruments of force:

      We have limited electoral input as voters. We pick the following essential officials: 1] Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces [POTUS].
      2] Local Law Enforcement Command of Mayor in local city,
      3] County Sheriff
      4] State Governors who command the National Guard.

    11. vxxc2014 Says:

      All,

      Here are the pressure points at any level of their loose criminal confederation from local to National.

      A] Power Lawyers- gtlaw.com for instance
      B] Media potentates.
      C] NGOs who dispense money for street chaos and violence as well as agitation across the board. That’s the activist/street soldier paymaster. No money no BLM, ACORN etc.

      All of those three entities have power. But they have of course no legitimacy, they are not the actual Constitutional and elected, appointed and sworn government. They have no legitimacy just the power in the machine. They are also the critical nodes in these Jacobin clubs.

      Have a Blessed and Merry Christmas, Happy New Year.

      >>Personally I think they’ve definitely got something on him and as body obsessed and narcissistic as Ryan is I can guess.

      I agree with that. It’s the simplest explanation that makes sense. Ryan, the man who made his name talking about getting the budget under control and developing a detailed plan on exactly how to do it, completely caves on a gigantic budget bill. Why? They’ve got something on him.

      That a good list. Generic, but good.

      I’ve read, for example, that EPA works with ideologically friendly groups to get themselves sued by them, forcing them to do what they wanted to do in the first place but had mandate, including making payments to that group, with taxpayer money of course, as part of the settlement.

      The other version of that game is for the regulatory agencies to go after a hated entity, a mining group for example, and require them to pay fines and make ‘charitable” contributions to certain environmental groups, who in turn donate part of that to leftist candidates and organizations. Sweet arrangement.

      It’s an extortion racket run through the government.

    15. Bill Brandt Says:

      Wonder why he’s growing the beard – so he won’t be recognized outside DC?

    16. Will Says:

      I’d wondered about the beard, also. It preceded the latest bad news. I had a fleeting thought that perhaps someone at Friday prayers had suggested that it was polite for those attending to sport facial hair. Then, I thought, nah, that’s crazy talk. The All-American boy from Janesville?

      When I saw that scraggly thing on his face, just as he was betraying the country, I have to admit that I thought of the Islamic command that men, especially those engaged in Jihad wear a beard.

      Sheikh Ahmad Kutty, a senior lecturer and an Islamic scholar at the Islamic Institute of Toronto, Ontario, Canada:

      Since beard is undoubtedly a great Sunnah, every Muslim male should try to practice this Sunnah according to the best of his ability. Allah does not take us to task for what is beyond our power or ability. We are told to fear Allah as best as we can.” Shaving the beard is a way of imitating the disbelievers, and the Prophet of Allah has commanded us in numerous hadiths to contradict the people of the book (Jews and Christians) and to contradict the pagans and Magus. So since shaving the beard is a tradition practiced by non-Muslims, it makes it mandatory for the Muslims to contradict them by growing it.

      Not saying specifically that he is a Jihadi enemy of the country. Not saying that he is a Jihadi at all. Just that the timing was . . . interesting.

    18. vxxc2014 Says:

      All the hipsters are sporting beards.

      Makes them so masculine.

      Look it’s DC: It’s money, sex or both.

      Who cares? We judge by actions.

    19. ErisGuy Says:

      Eisenhower conserved (and extended) the bold gains in government of FDR’s administration; Nixon conserved (and extended) the gain the LBJ’s administration; Reagan conserved (and extended, though he promised to abolish the Dept. of Education) the gains of Carter’s administration; Bush conserved (and extended) the gains of Clinton’s administration; and now Ryan conserves (and extends) the bold gains in government of Obama’s administration.

      Such is and has been the behavior of conservatives for longer than I have been alive.

      What’s that quote about electing the same people making the same promises over and over, then expecting different results?

    20. Mike K Says:

      Eisenhower, Nixon and Reagan lived with Democrat Congresses. Reagan began with a Republican Senate majority but Dole quickly ended that by delaying the tax cut until 1982 when it was too late to affect the election which saw the GOP lose the Senate.

      Bush Jr has less excuse as he had Congressional majorities. The 9/11 attack and the disputed 2000 election hurt him but the worst effect was Hastert, who was a crook like all Illinois politicians except Fitzgerald who was quickly driven out of the party. Instead the Illinois GOP gave us Obama.

      On a silver platter.

    21. Michael Hiteshew Says:

      >>I’d wondered about the beard, also.

      Will, not sure where you’ve been but beards are all the rage and have been for a few years. I wouldn’t read anything into that.

    22. ErisGuy Says:

      Eisenhower, Nixon and Reagan lived with Democrat Congresses.

      I agree with you. The impossible cannot be done, and there will always be some excuse for not doing. Doesn’t change anything.

    23. vxxc2014 Says:

      Eisenhower, Reagan and New Deal Patriotic Democrats are dead.

      So is Washington DC to us.

      They’re dead to us and are by proxy setting in motion our actual demise.

      Please face the hard truth.

      Happy Holidays.
