Message to Congressional Republicans

Beohner Re-Elected Speaker

I’ve listened to this mewling bunch of whiners tell us they’re “one-half of one-third” until I can stand it no longer.  It’s true that Obama was re-elected, and it’s true that Harry Reid still runs the Senate, but it’s also true that Republicans still control the House, and it’s about damned time they begin to behave like it.  All, I repeat ALL, spending and taxing measures must originate in the House.   This is no time for tears, and no situation for surrender.  If we are to hold off these statist loons, we must begin now, and we must begin here, at the cliff’s edge. These slack-jawed losers-in-waiting had better understand reality, if they can see it through all of those tears:  You were sent to Congress to STOP OBAMA, and I’m sick and tired of Republicans who have all the spine of overcooked spaghetti, and who will not live up to THEIR mandate.  I’m not one to cast unnecessary or pointless profanity into the public sphere, but you squishy whiners in the House had better get your acts together.  I have one message for House Republicans: SACK UP or GET OUT!

If you’re not willing to do the work you were elected to do, I expect you to tender your resignations now.  Conservatives no longer wish to listen to the excuses.  If you surrender on taxes to make a deal with Herr Obama, you will be blamed when the economy goes into recession.  If you refuse, and he plunges us over this so-called “fiscal cliff,” you’ll be blamed.  So be it.  You’re going to be blamed either way, so you might just as well summon the testicular fortitude to do what is right and stand on a principle.  My apologies to the ladies in the House Republican Caucus, but I think some of you are more capable of leading, and you’ll need to do so, because you’re surrounded by Republican eunuchs.  They haven’t the equipment or the gumption to do what is needed, but a few among your number have.

You people have let this thug-in-chief control the narrative for far too long.  While he and his henchmen have castigated Republicans for the alleged “war on women,” he’s been conducting a real war on America.  It’s time you say so.  While you permit him to get away with alleging that all of your opposition owes only to his race, you’ve let his party machine toss out one of your number who happened to be an African-American, and it’s not coincidental that none of you seem all too unhappy about it, because he dared to oppose some of your deal-making.

Back in 2011, as your so-called “speaker” was making deals with Harry and Barry behind closed doors, selling-out both principle and country, you sat on your hands and made no fuss as this entire debacle was shoved down your throats.  You took it.  You let it happen.  You went along with it.  Now, some sixteen months later, you’re surprised to find Obama still controlling the situation?  If you rest on your laurels, as you did throughout the campaign season of 2012, what did you think would be the likely result?  Your short-sighted deal-making of July 2011 has set this stage, and you’re to be held responsible for it.

Now the president intends to run the table on you, and your answer is “Let’s make a deal?”  DEAL???  Let me tell you the real deal, and let’s make it clear: Do you remember in 2006, when you lost the House?  2014 is right around the corner, and if you don’t find your stones for this fight, you might just as well go home.  In fact, why wait?  If you’re unwilling to make a stand now, why don’t you simply surrender altogether?  Why don’t you quit your nifty offices, with all your staff and goodies, and make a run for the border…of your home state?

This is not good enough.  It’s not nearly good enough.  The “fiscal cliff” is a joke.  The monetary cliff is real, and the money-printing must stop, but the only way to do that is for you to put the brakes on it.  ALL spending and taxing measures must originate in the House.  Simply don’t originate any.  Why aren’t you out in front of the White House making a spectacle?  Why aren’t you down there marching and yelling?  When will you learn that if you don’t have the ball anyway, you might just as well keep it in his court and let him field it?  I’ll tell you why: You people have grown too comfortable, and besides, he’ll let your pet earmarks through so long as he can get his agenda into law.  It’s time to set all this aside now.  Where are your tears for the US Constitution, the destruction of which you are enabling?

Dare this president to spend one nickel without your authorization.  Dare him to spend one cent beyond the debt ceiling.  Dare him.  Where is your courage?  Will you stand for nothing?  Will you fall for anything?  When will you realize that this clown can only make traction when you let him?  He is impotent if you take the purse away.  Impotent.  If he tries, impeach him for high crimes and misdemeanors.  There’s simply no other purpose for which you exist in your offices.  If you fold, there will be no coming back, and there’s no time to argue about it.  If you won’t do what is necessary to preserve this union, then we must replace you.  You have compromised your last if you expect to return to office in January 2015.

It’s time for Congressional Republicans to act as though they’re in charge of the House, and if they won’t stand, we must send them home.  What is the point in fighting to have a majority that once installed will not fight for the principles on which it was elected to lead?  Even now, Obama is trying to incite public support for his legislative tax-and-print agenda, but what is John Boehner doing?

This madness needs to end, but it won’t end until the adults in the room learn to say “no” and stick to it. Who will be the adults?  It will need to be we conservatives.  We conservatives need to think of this entire situation as an emergency, and as a war, but rather than become despaired at the current situation, we need to think in terms of warfare.  That’s how the enemy thinks, and until we realize that it is only the outcry of we conservatives who can make these cowardly Republicans in Congress fetch some resolve, we’re going to be in for a tough time.  The country is not nearly so overwhelmed as these election results might indicate if viewed only through the lenses of whining losers.  We need to buck-up first, and then we need to hold Congressional Republicans’ feet to the fire, and we need to let them hear us.  If we don’t do it, who will?  If now is not the time to stand, when shall we?

    Your message must be forwarded to congressional Republicans, talkshows,etc. It must be spread far and wide.

    Mark, you and your family were in my thoughts and prayers this thanksgiving.
    Thank you for taking the time to educate, inform, inspire and motivate us. We appreciate uncorrupted conservatives like you and govenor Palin and pray that doors will be opened for your message to reach millions and millions of Americans.

    Article is so correct about holding the line (saying “holding the fort” is declared racist). Story online from Pravda says “Obama has been re-elected for a 2nd term by an illiterate society.” But understanding will come. When? Not sure as to time schedule I would like. Maybe not on my time schedule at all. But I’m not checking out yet. :)

    Lets us stay together and not be divided, even though so many yet do not understand.

      Thank you for posting that video. Humbled by its message.

        Yep, Mel…old saying was… a person was a “bump on a log” as to grasping meaning or understanding and not getting it. It’ll come with lots more “bumps in the road” as per Obama. And that’s for sure. IMO !

    The problem is that you can’t expect overcooked spaghetti to suddenly turn into a battering ram. We err in assuming that Republicans fall in line with the Obama agenda because they’re simply stupid or weak. When it happens again & again, that suggests collusion. We have to stop trusting and appealing to people who repeatedly betray us. It’s insanity.

    • melory2

      You are right. Why do we even act as if the Republican party belongs to us and that we can change it. They don’t listen to “rightwing extremists”, they take their advice from Chris Matthews and New York Times.

      Third Party Now, or this:

      “Here lies my country.
      Born: 1776
      Died: Yesterday” (From AS II)

    Who was conservative Paul Weyrich?(October 7, 1942 – December 18, 2008) His quotes following tell quite a bit :
    “We are different from previous generations of conservatives… We are no longer working to preserve the status quo. We are radicals, working to overturn the present power structure of this country.” – Soloma, John. Ominous Politics: The New Conservative Labyrinth (1984), Hill and Wang Publ., New York.

    “I asked [Yegor] Gaidar why it was that he thought free-market efforts in the Soviet Union were being trashed by American media when the reality was far different from what I was seeing. He replied with a stinging answer, one I never will forget. He said, ‘Well, the Soviets spent millions of dollars infiltrating your media. Just because the Soviet Union went away doesn’t mean these people have gone away. They are still there.’ Of course, I knew this.” – A Congressional Challenge Paul Weyrich. Townhall.com, September 7, 2006.

    And Gaidar was : 19 March 1956 – 16 December 2009) a Soviet and Russian economist, politician and author, and was the Acting Prime Minister of Russia from 15 June 1992 to 14 December 1992.

    This might help one to understand who is our MSM. And who is our congress as described by Allen West.

    Note: Weyrich died on December 18, 2008, aged 66, at Inova Fair Oaks Hospital in Fairfax, Virginia. He was at the hospital for routine tests, and the cause of death was not released. (Maybe broken heart after Nov. election of 2008 or even Breitbart Syndrome?).

    Driving in to blood draw center this morning between 6 and 7, can’t eat before test, I listened to NPR as no talk radio on here at that time. Saxby Chambliss, Ga, was being interviewed about Norquist no increase in tax pledge. This Saxby elected in ’94 to house same time as MSNBC Morning Joe from Florida. One goes on to senate and one to tv fame. Same difference I think, maybe.

    He said times have changed. Pledge of 18-20 years ago not valid. Another clown. My vow in ’81 to love and to cherish til death do us part cannot just be declared by myself as no longer valid, because times have changed. Or my testimony before the congregation accepting Jesus Christ as my Savior, saved by Grace not works or being deserving of it. That in 1950 at ‘Pay Day Some Day’ sermon from Robert G. Lee. Disavowing in one would put me in contempt of court, the other in a rather hot spot. (Being truthful…my ’81 vows did come after a dissolution of marriage by a secular U.S. court in ’78 for a previous failure. Nothing to brag about, and I admit it). I own up to it. Still love being vowed since ’81 with wifey and two grown kids. The two clowns mentioned… still acting and both really failures.
