JD Rucker on Obamacare replacement bill and federalism

EIC JD Rucker took a different approach than normal while making his point about the Graham-Cassidy Obamacare replacement bill. He compared recent announcements by members of the GOP that the bill was “federalism” with a false claim that undercooked chicken is medium rare.

When steak is medium rare, it’s edible (and delicious to some). When chicken is “medium rare,” it’s actually still just undercooked chicken that shouldn’t be ingested because it’s dangerous.

If Graham-Cassidy is federalism, undercooked chicken is medium rare.

Take a peek at the story over on the Federalist Party website:

http://thefederalistparty.org/2017/09/19/graham-cassidy-federalism-undercooked-chicken-medium-rare/America needs a plan that removes the economic burden of Obamacare as well as DC’s socialist-leanings on healthcare. We need a bill that says federal-operated healthcare doesn’t work and we’re going to remove DC from the equation altogether over the next X years. DC-run healthcare will lead to single-payer. Calls for it will increase faster than insurance premiums (which will rise quickly). We need DC out of the healthcare business and Graham-Cassidy does the exact opposite. It plants DC in the middle of healthcare indefinitely.

Vice says women shouldn’t have guns

Published

on

On Friday, Vice’s Twitter account tweeted out a previous Vice article from June 14, 2016, entitled, “A Very Incomplete List of People Gun Rights Activists Think Should Be Armed.”

The brief article is a lamentation of the belief of Second Amendment advocates, specifically “the NRA and other right-wing groups,” that “the only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.”

The tweet (below) reads, “The NRA wants to put guns in the hands of: Schoolteachers, Preachers, Anyone who goes into a nightclub, Women …just to name a few.”

According to author Harry Cheadle – who evidently believes that women shouldn’t be afforded Constitutional protections or exercise our God-given human rights – “the goal [of 2A advocates] is to make sure everyone is prepared to engage in a shootout at all times.”

“And by everyone, I mean everyone,” he emphasized.

So, just who, exactly, does Vice believe should be considered prohibited from exercising his/her Second Amendment rights?

“Here is a surely incomplete list of people that gun rights activists believe should be packing heat. Once all of these categories of Americans are all carrying guns on them at all times, presumably we will finally be safe…”

The listed include (as worded the article), but are not limited to:

-Women

-Gay people

-Jews

-Holocaust victims

-Some people who commit domestic violence

-Firefighters

-Every black person in America

-Pilots on planes

-People on the terrorist watch list

Yes, ladies, you read that right. A gun in the hand of a woman is as great a risk as possible terrorists. I can imagine Mr. Cheadle must be petrified at the sight of a woman behind the wheel of a car!

Ahhh!

Yes, Mr. Cheadle is apparently quite fearful of women, Holocaust victims, and black Americans, among others.

Well, as you might expect, this didn’t go over too well on Twitter. Here are just a few of the (often snark-filled) reactions.



And, in case you are wondering about my own response to Vice’s tweet… I joined the NRA.

The Naked Truth Of Guiding Principles.

Published

The ‘SI Swimsuit edition’ is a perfect ‘illustration’ [pardon the pun] of why one needs bedrock principles.

For a moment, imagine the editorial meeting on the upcoming Sports Illustrated “Swim Suit” issue. Someone comes up with the brilliant idea of going after the premise of women as pure sex objects by making women pure sex objects – but with grease paint. After a brief, awkward silence a sycophant in true echo chamber style agrees with the concept with everyone else chimes in with approbation over the sheer genius of the idea.

This is what happens when there is no sane voice in the room that points out the sheer absurdity of the such a suggestion and steers the meeting back to more reasonable topics. It is (almost literally) the modern version of the emperor’s new clothes, a new cautionary tale of what happens under extreme groupthink. The ‘me too’ movement is now imploding in on itself because it has no real direction or guiding principles.

Two Different Revolutions, Two Different Outcomes.

Now, compare the results of the American and French revolutions with the impact of one having underlying principles to keep things on an even keel. The magnificent words of the Declaration of Independence penned by Thomas Jefferson set the framework for the new nation keeping subsequent events from spinning out of control. Such was not the case with the tragic results of the French revolution for want of bedrock moral code to keep mobile vulgus at bay.

It should be clearly evident that recent events have reaffirmed that one must have a set of guiding principles or be at risk of suffering the same consequences that have afflicted all too many of the past.

Everything from the current budget deal that is being opposed by the House Freedom Caucus as reported on The Right Scoop  to the gift to the Socialist-Left Media of the possibly of having an Illinois Nazi run as a Republican in the state’s Third Congressional [and ‘very Democratic’] District as reported by the New York Times.  Its location that includes part of Chicago should mean the man doesn’t have a chance. But that won’t stop the national Media from endlessly smearing the GOP with the story.

Guiding Principles are key to a political party’s continued success.

Following a clearly articulated set of Conservative values would hold such circumstances at bay. The basic principles set forth in our nation’s founding documents of individual rights, limited government, and free enterprise. Or as presented by The Federalist party.

Holding on to such principles will keep us from digging ourselves into the budgetary hole we presently find ourselves. It will also short-circuit the media’s obsession with connecting us with a group of Socialists. There is a reason why they are labeled a platform or guiding principles, they are the foundational constructs of what we stand for, and what we oppose.

Wisconsin GOP offers choice of either a RINO or a racist for Congress

Published

on

It’s been a little over a quarter of a century since Ronald Reagan rode off into the California sunset; ever since that day the GOP has worked to destroy conservatives and conservative principles and, as a result, the party itself

This terminal condition gave rise to a group of Republicans we’ve come to know as RINOs (Republican In Name Only) because it used to be that the words “Republican” and “conservative” were synonymous. Sadly, that is no longer the case.

Besides the election of Donald Trump, there is perhaps no better example of just how far the GOP has fallen from its conservative values than the rise of Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan into positions of leadership. This devolution has become prima facie evidence of why now is the time for conservatives fed up with Republicans who have become nothing more than inarticulate Democrats to form a new party.

For those who would challenge my conclusions, I invite you to consider the upcoming GOP primary race between Paul Ryan and Paul Nehlen in Wisconsin.

When Paul Ryan became Speaker of the House, I knew that based on his track record of spinelessness that he wouldn’t be anymore conservative than his predecessor, John Boehner. Needless to say, I wouldn’t shed any tears if the early inductee into my Gutless On Principles Hall of Shame were to be kicked out of his cushy job in Congress this November, but should Paul Nehlen be the guy to replace him? Not a snowball’s chance in Hell.

With the support of Breitbart, along with Steve Bannon’s redefinition of conservatism, Nehlen challenged Ryan in 2016–a campaign he lost by 70 percentage points despite receiving additional support from Donald Trump and an army of alt-right nationalists who had found a home with Bannon and Trump.

In his 2018 campaign, Nehlen has taken his alt-right nationalist beliefs to David Duke levels by openly attacking Jews. In an appearance on Duke’s radio show, Nehlen stated how the “relentless attacks” against his “America First” position were due to his belief that “Jews control the media.”

As it currently stands, the GOP in Wisconsin is offering a choice between a RINO and a racist for Congress. Using the now widely accepted “lesser of two evils” approach to voting, that means that one of these men will represent the irreparable party in November.

By the way, Wisconsin isn’t an isolated case. Such losing binary choices are being foisted on conservatives all over America. I can only hope that an army of dedicated patriots will rise up and say, ENOUGH!

The solution to America’s problems won’t come from the two-party duopoly owned and operated by the Republicans and the Democrats. It’s up to us to draw a line in the sand, stand our ground, and defend our conservative values.
