The Republican establishment has stepped into the TEA Party’s trap and doesn’t realize it yet

 

By Kevin “Coach” Collins

Don’t feel hunted anymore because we are now the hunters.

Enough with the talk about how we the rank and file TEA Party conservatives have exchanged one threatening group – the Democrats- for another threatening group, the Republican Establishment.

As this line of thinking goes, we’ve beaten the Democrats and put Barack Obama flat on his back; but now we have to be afraid of the Republican Establishment (GOPe) and their lust for amnesty. We are supposed to lay awake at nights worried that they will stab us in the back and truth be told, until Election Night that’s just how I felt.

But because of the size and depth of our victory, the fear and anxiety has found a new home.  Its new owners are the GOPe and they don’t yet realize it. They are walking into a trap and the Maalox Moments will be rolling their way.

They think they are going to buy us off with “fixing, Obamacare, the EPA, VA and the IRS.” Of course these are great victories and we must insist upon seeing them happen, but they are not the big one. Killing amnesty and driving a stake through its black heart is the BIG ONE.   

So far the GOPe hasn’t talked about killing amnesty; but they will.

The trap they are in goes this way: As they do things like dismantle Obamacare and fix the EPA etcetera they will be weakening Obama. As they weaken Obama, we and the new people who just came into the process because they want his policies stopped, will demand more and more. The considerably much more conservative House and Senate will have to act. As they do, the GOPe will offer more and more to appease us which we will take, but still demand more. This always happens in appeasement scenarios – ask Neville Chamberlain. This will steadily weaken Obama as frightened Democrats walk away from him to save themselves.

Sooner or later there will be nothing left of Obama and because of our victories we will be so strong that Tom Donahue and his US Chamber of Commerce’s demands for amnesty will seem trivial.

Threats that Republicans had better put up a pro-amnesty candidate in 2016 or not bother putting one up at all will seem childish and ring hollow in the face of our new found power and OUR threats to stay home again as we did in 2012.      

The trap will ensnare the GOPe while THEY think THEY are running things and slam shut before they realize they have walked into it.   

Don’t feel hunted anymore because we are now the hunters.

Demonstrably False: The Presidency of Barack Obama

 

By George H. Shear

Barack Obama’s flimsy lies in defense of his handling of the Secret Service prostitution scandal have been characterized by the Washington Post as “Demonstrably False.”  This truthful statement from a leading media outlet has been a longtime coming; but those of us who have been honest observers of the miserable failure in the White House say: Better late than never.

Barack Obama has lied to us from the first day he entered public life from wherever he came from. If Franklin Roosevelt’s Administration was the, “New Deal” and John Kennedy’s was the “New Frontier,” Barack Obama’s Administration must be labeled “Demonstratively False.”

Here are some of the “Demonstratively False” lies from Obama proving his Administration deserves this label.

“If you like your health care plan/ doctor you can keep your health care plan/doctor.”

“We agree[d] on reforms that will finally reduce the costs of health care. Families will save on their premiums…”

“My healthcare plan will save each American family $2,500 a year.”

“My administration is committed to creating an unprecedented level of openness in government.”

 “We have “shovel ready jobs.”

“We will restructure mortgages to help you avoid foreclosure.”

“Federal contracts over $25,000 will be competitively bid.”

“There will be constitutional oversights to protect against illegal surveillance of American citizens.”

“We will get our troops home as the first thing I do as president, I will end this war…. take that to the bank.”  

“You will have five days to review and comment on any non-emergency bills before they become law.”

“… we’ve got to get serious about starting to live within our means, instead of leaving debt for our children and grandchildren and our great-grandchildren.”   

“…. I refuse to leave our children with a debt that they cannot repay – and that means taking responsibility right now, in this administration, for getting our spending under control.”

Then, of course, there is Obama’s biggest lie of all: “I, Barack Hussein Obama, do solemnly swear that I will execute the office of president of the United States faithfully, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect, and defend the constitution of the United States.”

10,535 pages of ObamaCare in 4 sentences

Coach is Right staff writer Jerry Todd sums up the extraordinarily complex Affordable Care Act in 4 easy sentences.

As humorous as this sounds…..every last word of it is absolutely TRUE!

1. In order to insure the uninsured, we first have to uninsure the insured.

2. Next, we require the newly uninsured to be re-insured.

3. To re-insure the newly uninsured, they are required to pay extra charges to be re-insured.

4. The extra charges are required so that the original insured, who became uninsured, and then became re-insured, can pay enough extra so that the original uninsured can be insured,

Which will be free of charge to them.

This, ladies and gentlemen, is called “redistribution of wealth” … Or, by its more common name, SOCIALISM.

This is what happens when you violate the principle of subsidiarity.

Liberal courts might award the powers of Congress to the Internal Revenue Service

By Doug Book, editor

In June of last year I wrote that the future of ObamaCare would depend upon the outcome of a small number of under-reported lawsuits filed to prevent the IRS illegally re-writing the Affordable Care Act.

At issue in the lawsuits:

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) provides tax credits and subsidies for the purchase of health insurance through exchanges that are run by “a governmental agency or nonprofit entity that is established by a state.” (2) By mid 2013 however, 33 states had refused to build an ObamaCare Exchange so necessary to the functioning of the law. And although the ACA made provision for recalcitrant governors and state legislators by permitting the federal government to build exchanges within their borders, it did NOT allow for federally run exchanges to provide the subsidies and tax credits without which healthcare plans would be unaffordable for a majority of businesses and individuals.

Section 1311 of ObamaCare allows for providing tax credits or subsidies to certain people who purchased qualified health plans “through AN EXCHANGE ESTABLISHED BY THE THE STATE.”  (5) Section 1321 – the section regulating federally run exchanges – makes it clear that neither tax credits nor subsidies may be offered through exchanges established by the federal government. (3)

In short:

“Congress did not authorize tax credits, subsidies to private insurance companies, or penalties on employers in states with a federal Exchange.”

“Nor did Congress grant the IRS authority to create such credits, subsidies, and penalties…”  (4)

However, in May of 2012, Barack Obama’s Internal Revenue Service decided to unilaterally change the language of the ACA and override the will of Congress by stating that the Service will have the authority to provide subsidies and tax credits to ObamaCare participants from federally run exchanges.  The IRS literally rewrote the law and rescued the president’s legislation by giving itself permission to spend an estimated $800 billion taxpayer dollars over the next 10 years—dollars which were NOT authorized by congress to be spent. (1)

How does the Obama Regime defend implementation of an IRS rule which ignores the clear language of the ACA?  By claiming that the new rule is “consistent with the intent of the law and our (Treasury Department’s) ability to interpret and implement it.”

But regardless of IRS assertions of intent, the text itself of the Affordable Care Act proves their claim to be an outright lie.

In response to the typically breathtaking contempt of the Obama Regime for both the law and the Constitution, 4 lawsuits were filed. Two have been decided: Halbig v Burwell (the new head of the HHS) and King v Burwell. In Halbig, the DC Circuit Court ruled the shenanigans of the IRS to be illegal. In King, the 4th Circuit Court decided that the language of the law was indeed “ambiguous,” making the IRS rewrite “a reasonable interpretation of the relevant text.”

Two lawsuits now remain each insisting HHS and the IRS overstepped their authority. They are Pruitt v Burwell and Indiana v IRS.

How may the American public expect them to be decided? Who can tell! The increasingly corrupt and pernicious purveyors of the legal system in the United States make predicting what should be the most straightforward of rulings virtually impossible. The unconditional appetite to further a politically inspired agenda has replaced the Constitution as the foundation of American jurisprudence.  

Imagine providing a federal bureaucracy the power to “borrow” tax dollars, determine their use and ignore the specific, written language of the law, all for the purpose of implementing a political fix for legislation which didn’t turn out quite the way its authors  had intended.  

That an American court could even consider a ruling which might endorse such an abuse of power is scary as Hell.
