11 Days to Save America: Defund Obama’s Disastrous Policies or be Complicit in the Destruction of Our Country

We have 11 days to stop the funding of Obama’s priorities; it is time to tell Republicans in Congress that we demand an end to the “show votes” and that instead of giving Obama a blank check for the final year of his administration they must exercise the power the Constitution gave them to stand as a check against Obama’s dangerous policies and unconstitutional actions.

House GOP Show Vote Won’t Stop One Syrian Terrorist From Entering America

Here is the reality of Speaker Ryan’s American Security Against Foreign Enemies Act; it was forced through the House on a closed Rule (no amendments allowed) and it leaves the action to decide whether or not a Syrian “refugee” is admitted to America entirely in the hands of Obama’s appointees. It wasn’t passed to protect innocent Americans, it is purely a political ploy to protect vulnerable Republican incumbents who are facing conservative primary challengers.

GOP Establishment Owns Obama's Syrian Refugee Threat Because They Keep Funding It

Martha Roby, Renee Ellmers, Pete Sessions and other establishment Republicans gave Obama a blank check with their votes on the past three budget and spending bills. Now they are trying to claim they have no control over what he does with the money and couldn’t imagine that he would pursue a dangerous policy like bringing potential Syrian Muslim terrorists to America? If that’s their excuse they are just plain lying, or they are too dangerously naïve to represent the American people in Congress.

Speaker Ryan Schedules Show Vote: Shuts Out Conservatives On Syrian Jihadi Menace

Speaker Paul Ryan's SAFE Act of 2015 will not stop one jihadi posing as a Syrian “refugee” from entering the United States. However, it will make Capitol Hill’s Republican establishment look like they are doing something, when in fact they are complicit in Obama’s dangerous plans because they keep funding them. We urge you to call your Representative and Senators, the Capitol Switchboard is 1-866-220-0044, tell them you understand that the SAFE Act of 2015 is nothing but a "show vote." Tell them that if they fund Obama’s dangerous Syrian “refugee” program they own it.

Cruz Introduces Bill To Actually Stop Terrorists Infiltrating USA As “Refugees”

As he did with his tax reform proposal and his border security and immigration plans Senator Ted Cruz has introduced a plan that actually solves a problem country class Americans want solved – in this case stopping jihadi terrorists from infiltrating America as Syrian “refugees.”

The Coming Worthless “Show Vote” On The Syrian Refugee Menace

We urge you to call your Representative and Senators, the Capitol Switchboard is 1-866-220-0044, tell them you understand that the SAFE Act of 2015 is nothing but a "show vote." Tell them that if they fund Obama’s dangerous Syrian “refugee” program they own it. Tell them that if they fund the program that brings jihad to America then they are complicit in the murder and bloodshed that will surely follow.

25 Governors Said NO To Syrian Refugees: Will GOP Congress Help?

UPDATED: The count now up to the Governors of 30 states* (29 of them Republicans) who have now said “NO” to bringing Syrian “refugees” to their communities, but the Republican leaders of Capitol Hill, Speaker of the House Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, have been completely silent on whether they will support these Governors by moving legislation to defund Obama’s jihad importation program.

Ted Cruz: Repealing Obamacare Isn't Complicated

Ted Cruz is right, and he has proven once again that he is the one guy on Capitol Hill conservatives can trust to always keep his word. Passing a full repeal of Obamacare and sending the bill to the President’s desk as Republicans promised during the 2014 midterm election isn’t complicated. All it takes is a credible argument and a spine, both of which are in short supply in the establishment Republican "leadership."

Establishment Republicans Walking Away From Full Obamacare Repeal

A one sentence repeal of Obamacare through the budget reconciliation bill should be an easy call for Republicans. They have the majority, they can ignore the recommendation of the Senate Parliamentarian if it goes against them, let the Senate vote on a favorable interpretation of the rules and forge forward – but that requires a credible argument and a spine, both of which are in short supply among establishment Republican “leaders” in Congress.

Mitch McConnell Calls for the Destruction of the Republican Party

A two year deal that effectively takes spending off the table as an issue in the 2016 presidential campaign would be a disaster for Republicans because they would once again be complicit in the Obama-led tsunami of spending, deficits and debt that are wrecking the American economy.

Senator Ted Cruz: The Real Story of What Is Happening in Washington

After establishment Republican leaders and Democrats refused to allow Ted Cruz the courtesy of a roll-call vote on his motion to end taxpayer funding of Planned Parenthood and the Iranian nuclear deal Cruz delivered a powerful speech on the Senate floor highlighting the many examples of Republican leadership surrendering to President Obama’s demands, and reminding the Republican Party’s Capitol Hill leadership to keep their promises to the American people.

Mitch McConnell pushed to resign as Senate Majority Leader

Ralph Z. Hallow, Washington Times

“McConnell needs to resign!!” Louisiana GOP Chairman Roger Villere wrote in a Facebook posting. Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, speaking at the annual Values Voters Summit in D.C. on Saturday, also called on Mr. McConnell to resign.

You Can Help Mitch McConnell Get Lei’d

Leon Wolf, RedState

We need to help Mitch McConnell follow Rep. John Boehner’s fine example and walk away from all the headache and stress of dealing with us crazies who want a Republican majority actually accomplish something. Let’s help Mitch McConnell realize that retirement is the right move for him – let’s help him get lei’d.

We Explain Why Mitch McConnell Will Betray Conservatives And Actually Help Obama Fund Planned Parenthood

Ted Cruz is right – if the Republican “leadership” actually tried to win, they would vote on one bill after another that funded specific programs of the federal government, while defunding Planned Parenthood in the same bill. But we don't think Mitch McConnell will ever fight to defund Planned Parenthood because he's supported the abortion industry over and over again throughout his 30-year Senate career.

McConnell tries to lower GOP expectations on spending

Alexander Bolton, The Hill

So much for controlling the power of the purse: McConnell warned his GOP colleagues that they are almost certainly going to have to accept spending levels above those in the 2011 Budget Control Act that introduced the sequester, the series of automatic cuts and ceilings meant to restrain federal spending.

Mitch McConnell’s Fig Leaf to Justify Continued Funding to Kill Babies

Erick Erickson, RedState

McConnell is telling Republicans that Pro-Life groups are opposed to a government shutdown over Planned Parenthood. The message is coming from McConnell’s loyal lieutenants too and is being heavily pushed by loyal media friends. There’s a problem with this too -- it’s not true.

Defunding Planned Parenthood: The GOP Leadership’s Next Self-Inflicted Crisis

At some point, Congress has to do what's right -- not just from a political standpoint, but from a moral one, and on defunding Planned Parenthood that time is now. If there’s a government shutdown, better that than continuing to make every American taxpayer complicit in the murder of thousands of babies and the trafficking of their dismembered bodies.

Iran Nuclear Weapons Deal A “Go” Corker and McConnell Betray America One More Time

Rather than take the path outlined by our friends Andy McCarthy and Ted Cruz to leave the sanctions in place, thanks to yesterday’s vote – forced for no reason by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell – McConnell and Corker have effectively given the Iranian nuclear weapons program the go ahead and hobbled the next (hopefully conservative) President who might have been expected to try to undo the vast damage to our national security Bob Corker, Mitch McConnell and Barack Obama have inflicted.

If John Boehner can face a no-confidence vote, why can't Mitch McConnell?

Ed Straker, American Thinker

To be Senate Majority Leader, a Republican needs 51 votes (a Democrat would only need 50, because Lunch Box Joe would break a tie). Currently there are 54 Republicans. That means if a Republican challenged McConnell, only four Republicans would need to vote against him to topple him, assuming no Democrats voted for him.

What Should Congress Do First?

The Republican establishment “leaders” who run Capitol Hill are notorious for not being able to walk and chew gum at the same time and appear to be genetically unable to deal with more than one major issue at a time. Please tell us which of these important issues Congress should deal with first; defunding Planned Parenthood, defeating the Obama – Corker Iran nuclear weapons deal, the Meadows resolution to oust Speaker Boehner or the need to pass appropriations to fund the federal government for the fiscal year starting October 1?
