Cui bono? The Romans had a phrase for what is happening in the House

By Kevin “Coach” Collins

A recent political cartoon showed a group of “Republican” elephants standing around a body marked, “Boehner” with multiple arrows in its back. One asks, “What now?” A second responds, “Maybe we should have thought this through first.”

In just eight words, without realizing it, the propagandist who created the cartoon has epitomized the problem with the Uniparty rule of government. These enemies of freedom just don’t get it.

When John Boehner resigned as Speaker he did not do so willingly. As an apparatchik for the Uniparty’s control of our lives, his job was to bludgeon Americans into accepting unlimited numbers of illegal aliens and enable Barack Obama to destroy what is left of   our nation. He failed for a very simple reason: We have had enough lies and broken promises.

Americans went to the polls in two successive mid-term elections and handed power to a cabal of liars whose smug contempt for Americans has finally caught up to them.

So as the ancient Romans would ask, “Cui bono?” or “Who benefits?” in all of this. It is said that the truth will always come out, and now it has.

We need look no further than at those who are NOT benefitting by Boehner’s resignation to see cui bono. Democrats were at first apprehensive about whether the Republican wing of the Uniparty could come through. They were temporarily buoyed by the announcement from their media propagandists that Kevin McCarthy, Boehner’s chief yes man, was all but assured to get the Speakership. They rested easy that the conservatives had been defeated and things could go back to business as usual.

Enter cui bono again. McCarthy backed out because being Speaker  wasn’t going to “benefit” him.

Congressional sellouts like Peter King from New York lamented that the House is now a “Banana Republic,” an interesting comment considering the fact that Boehner cancelled the election when his man dropped out, a move which is VERY Banana Republic-like.

Enter fake “conservative” Paul Ryan, a potential nominee who would make the no borders crowd dance in the aisles. Cui bono? One of the first House members to jump for joy was Luis Gutiérrez, the self-appointed head of the Illegal Alien Caucus. Cui bono? That’s pretty obvious; Ryan is an amnesty crowd lapdog.

Now Ryan is saying “No” because it won’t benefit him.

The statists, GOPe, media and the Uniparty are all upset about this turmoil because the answer to the cui bono in the House is: WE THE PEOPLE benefit and they don’t like it.

Congressman Kevin McCarthy brings home the Senators’ Bacon

By Jerry Todd, staff writer

The Bakersfield Californian in Kevin McCarthy’s home District observed in a complimentary article certain key issues to bring “renewed luster for the Golden State.” Directly quoted, these are:

Water: Improved prospects for legislation that sends more water to farmers and studies new storage sites.
Environment: Diminished environmental regulations, increased oil and gas drilling and streamlined timber harvesting.
Business: Silicon Valley and California’s commercial space industry have both received his attention in the past.

These are certainly issues of state and national importance. Each is highly focused on their effects on the oil and agriculture economy of the San Joaquin Valley and the aerospace technology centers of Eastern Kern County (Edwards AFB, China Lake Naval Weapons Center and the Mojave Spaceport).

Our interests would be better served if we had two Senators who represent the interests of the State as the Founders originally intended. The House of Representatives is based on population. To counterbalance this diversity is to have two Senators represent the interests of each state.

Under the 1912 17th Amendment, Senators no longer represent the direct interests of their states, but of an exclusive club. Ted    CONSTITUTION BURNINGCruz refers to them as “the Washington Cartel.” The passage of the 17th gave us POLITICAL PARTY DIVISION in the Senate which was not present prior. We have seen lock step voting on the part of the left for decades. With rare exceptions they all vote down party lines. The 17th was the collapse of all protective State powers.

Now to start cleaning up the mess.

Constitution of the United States of America – Amendment XVII

(Introduced May 13, 1912; Ratified April 8, 1913)

The Senate of the United States shall be composed of two Senators from each State, elected by the people thereof, for six years; and each Senator shall have one vote. The electors in each State shall have the qualifications requisite for electors of the most numerous branch of the State legislatures.

When vacancies happen in the representation of any State in the Senate, the executive authority of such State shall issue writs of election to fill such vacancies: Provided, That the legislature of any State may empower the executive thereof to make temporary appointments until the people fill the vacancies by election as the legislature may direct.

This amendment shall not be so construed as to affect the election or term of any Senator chosen before it becomes valid as part of the Constitution.

What change did the 17th Amendment make to the function of government under the Constitution?

Senators were to represent the interests of the state, appointed by their state legislatures. They were to be lobbyists for their    CONSTITUTIONAL CONVENTION 1respective states. The broader interests of the state were served, versus a Senate controlled by and loyal to the Federal government. Government controlled by a small group nullifies states’ rights. It controls the education, welfare and monetary systems extra-constitutionally.

Capital and Labor react to Judeo-Christian morality turn against the Church and the Constitution. For Labor, it is the leaning to Communism; for Capital to control the monetary system and centralize government to control speculations, rates and taxes.

Capitalism is High-Finance’s role as the servant of commerce, investment in vision and courage, building personal and family savings and as a vehicle for philanthropy! Greed cannot handle such a wide and free distribution of the work of others. It demands tribute from all through debt-based money and hedging.

The Philosophical Reason for Repealing the 17th Amendment

According to the work of American Philosopher Charles Sanders Peirce, the Constitutional structure of the United States follows the ideal philosophical hierarchy of the normative sciences of Philosophy.

1. Aesthetics (Beauty) – the Declaration of Independence and its acknowledgement of our Creator’s endowment is balanced by a litany of the wrongs faced under historic despotism.
2. Ethics found in the Constitution establish the rules of common discourse and behavior.
3. …and the Logic of the first 10 Amendments making up the Bill of Rights protects the veracity and integrity of the Constitution.

This structure sets the natural cause and effect flow of the elements following Beauty, Ethics and Logic; Subsidiarity,   CONSTITUTION MEMOSolidarity and Chaos leading to Harmony. The 17th Amendment disrupts the ideal order set by the Founders. Governance in a Constitutional Republic is difficult. It’s impossible in a democracy, which over time will vote itself non-existent wealth and immoral privileges until it dies of depravity, debt and starvation. Democracies under “progressive” rule tend to eat their parents as well as their children!

United States Senators shall be selected in accordance with Article 1, Section 3 of the main body of The Constitution as described in the original method of appointment/selection of Senators by the Governor and legislature of the state represented. Simple as it is, it must be done.

Another Intelligence Failure?

By Jim Emerson, staff writer

House and Senate intelligence committees are investigating whether the intelligence community was unaware of Russia’s rapid buildup and dramatic military offensive in Syria.  In layman’s terms, congressional Republicans learned of the Russian advance from CNN before they were presented any solid information by the intelligence community. It’s likely the intelligence was buried by Obama loyalists in an effort to prevent bad information from reaching the President.  Another possibility, Executive Intelligence Summary briefings may have been sanitized before any of the content reached congress. Since the Obama Administration is the least transparent in American history, such conspiracy notions hardly represent a stretch of the imagination.

“Let your plans be dark and impenetrable as night and when you move, fall like a thunderbolt.” – Sun Tzu

Reuters reported that Congress was examining “the extent to which the spy community overlooked or misjudged critical warning signs.” Congress was caught off guard by the Kremlin’s direct involvement in Syria’s civil war. Some claim Congress was unaware because the Russians didn’t telegraph their actions before attacking anti-Assad rebels. They started the fight before having all of their participating forces in Syria.

Yet Washington still does not know who was attacked. To this day no one in the Administration can answer the questions who was attacked and where. Flying drones over enemy territory can only provide so much information. To identify people and specific locations requires other intelligence collection methods. Russia had already done their intelligence assessments and took action. Obama failed to learn that lesson. He did nothing and Americans died.

Obama implemented a containment policy regarding ISIS, buying time to allow them to fight with the Free Syrian Army and remove President Bashar al-Assad before handing the country to the Muslim Brotherhood. Of course, Obama failed to consider the possibility that ISIS would also capture large areas of Iraq. Despite bombing by NATO jets, ISIS is not defeated. Russian involvement in Syria fills a leadership vacuum and safeguards the nation’s assets in Syria. Obama’s lack of resolve may well send a message to the Ukraine that United States has no intention of protecting them from Russian forces.

Intelligence assessments written by lower level analysts may be dead-on correct regarding Russia’s intentions, but may have been ignored or censored by senior analysts preparing executive reports. If a particular analyst has political ambitions he may withhold information that contradicts the talking points coming from the White House. Dear Congress: Before accusing the Intelligence Community of not doing its job, make sure you start at the top. It may be that the intended recipient has decided the information it wishes to get regardless of the intel that happens to be available.

So Did McCarthy Bug Out Because of a Girl or Conservatives?

by Suzanne Eovaldi, staff writer

Let’s look at the Kevin thing realistically. So the guy balked. Walter Jones (R-NC) sent around a generic letter to a select few influential House voters saying in effect, “Watch It, Guys.” “Generic” meaning he, a seasoned politico, knew to use common nouns, not Proper nouns in grammar speak, to avoid letting the masses in on a secret that allegedly the insiders have known for months. Gasp, here, take a deep breath. Those of you on oxygen, are your tanks engaged? Walter Jones was channeling the Robert Livingston extra marital affair; the Newt Gringrich extra-curricular activities that now are his beloved wife Callista; the notion that, gasp, Republican lawmakers may have sex. When Kevin McCarthy stunned the universe with his “I Won’t Go There” proclamation, he put out in the open the notion that at least, traditional sex may be right. Drudge was up with a link that I just couldn’t go with because I could not substantiate the tip.

I called up D.C. and left a message with an “Adam,” (pertinent) asking is there something going on between Nurse Renee and Leader McCarthy? A sweet sounding, but angry press spokeswoman called me back to assure me nothing was happening; how low can someone go to even suggest that Nurse Renee Ellmers (R-NC) and Speaker McCarthy were, maybe, knowledgeable of each other in the biblical sense. I just couldn’t go with the story because I couldn’t substantiate it. And I’m glad I said nothing. Years ago, an editor, one of many I’ve had, said, “When in doubt, don’t.” I took his advice.

Now comes this positively jaw dropping quote. “An internet address originating from the Department of Homeland Security was tied to entries made on the Wikipedia pages of North Carolina Representative Renee Ellmers and CA Rep. Kevin McCarthy, alleging that the two Republicans were having an affair…It is unclear if someone at the federal agency was behind the edits…But both changes -McCarthy’s & Ellmers’s-show that a user at the IP address made them on Thursday. That address comes from DHS’ offices in Springfield, VA.”

So let’s take an honest look at the complete media frenzy meltdown over “the inability of the Republicans to govern.” An MSNBC younger type male wearing those academic looking glasses, asked Anthony, “Carlos, the tweeter” Weiner about these Republicans. Of course, the lib/Dem, disgraced spouse of Hillary Clinton’s top “Aide,” chortled about how the Dems can caucus, can get legislation passed, etc, baloney. Alan Grayson (D-Fl)–now in a hot race with Patrick Murphy (D-FL) for that state’s Senatorial seat–got some zingers off as only he can do. Grayson, at last reports, was engaged in a heated divorce battle with his wife whom he called a “Gold Digger.” The couple have five children. Murphy did a number on war hero Allen West whose campaign put up a side by side picture of West getting ready to deploy to the war zone while Murphy was busted for a gay bar fight in Miami’s SoBe scene. How much media traction do you think either of these stories gleaned?

The leftist Media hordes explained away President Bill “thong-gazer” Clinton’s Oval Office antics with “Hey, He’s Just a Man,” until the smell even caused dust mites to flee presidential rooms.

And what about all of the web flames concerning our current Democratic Commander in Chief? Just a cliq on the National ENQUIRER can bring up Obama leering down the dress of a young admirer. However, the sponge-in-the-brain malpractice lawsuit against Republican candidate and neurosurgeon Ben Carson may gain more traction because, allegedly, the news outlet shares the same attorney with Miss Hillary! How many panel discussions have you seen our mainstream media give to the interview Drudge had with Alex Jones when they talked about Democratic sex? Keep looking and listening. If President Hillary’s red phone rang at 3 AM, would Huma pick up? Huma, of those close family ties with the Muslim Brotherhood.

OK, so McCarthy balked. He had the good sense to realize Boehner light was not going to cut it and he bugged out. Say what you want about the Conservative caucus. Finally, we’ve gotten through to the filth that is D.C. We’ve got clout and we aim to use it.

The Media are the ones coming late to this party, however. Watching McCarthy fluff his air blown hair just before urging his pretty wife and two children to flank him at the podium’s firing squad was the Conservatives’ “Ah Hah” moment. D.C. has finally gotten the message that we little people, the lowly voters that have paid for your crap all of these years are mad as Hell and we’re not going to take it anymore. Media, you lose; Donald Trump, you may have just gotten elected!
