Can Scott Walker unite the GOP?

Scott Walker, the Republican governor of Wisconsin, has generated much buzz as a potential presidential candidate since he addressed the Freedom Summit in Des Moines, Iowa on January 24. Walker has jumped to the front of a crowded Republican field and may be uniquely qualified to unite the various factions of the Republican Party.

 

There are a number of factions within the GOP, the two most obvious being the establishment and the Tea Party. In addition to these groups, there are also religious conservatives, foreign policy conservatives, and libertarians. Most of the potential Republican nominees are championed by only one or two of these groups. For example, Chris Christie and Jeb Bush fall into the establishment category. Ted Cruz, Ben Carson and Sarah Palin are prominent candidates from the Tea Party. Mike Huckabee and Rick Santorum have the support of the religious wing of the GOP. Rand Paul is the obvious libertarian choice and no strong foreign policy candidates have yet emerged. Scott Walker is one of few candidates with the potential to bridge the divides between these groups.

The State of Dis-Union Address

sotu cover“It’s now up to us to choose who we want to be over the next fifteen years, and for decades to come.”
– Barack HUSSEIN Obama’s recurring theme in his 2015 State of the Union Address alluding to the fact that America seems destined to be forever in debt

Disappointing at best…just more ‘doubling down’ on the same old tired rhetoric at the very lest, Barack HUSSEIN Obama’s sixth State of the Union Address was NOTHING but another reworked campaign speech touting the ‘supposed’ benefits of big government with NO mention whatsoever of muslim islamic terrorists…the biggest threat facing the entirety of the West today.

Bottom line…Obama simply did NOTHING but deliver a ‘see how wonderful I am’ speech, while misleading…while lying…to ‘We the People’ about how concerned he is about the middle class. And true to his being a man who likes to hear the sound of his own voice, Obama bloviated over and over how successful his actually failed policies are while only those on his side of the aisle stood to applaud. And if truth be told, what Obama did was NOTHING but run down a ‘bucket list’ of ‘to dos’ with a smattering of ‘having dones’ thrown in for good measure, and doing so all while knowing that the new Republican controlled Congress will rightfully kick his ‘bucket list’ to the curb…and knowing that he will veto any and everything that they do pass. In fact, he told them six times that he would. Continue reading

How I learned to stop worrying and love the cromnibus

While some conservatives have denounced the passage of the “cromnibus,” a combination of the abbreviation for “continuing resolution” and omnibus, the passage of the annual appropriations bill is a good thing for the Republican Party and the country. It shows that most Republicans are serious about governing, and that they can work with Democrats to find common ground for the good of the country. Since the new Republican congressional class has not yet taken office, the cromnibus compromise should more accurately be viewed as the last hurrah of the Democratic Senate rather than a bill that sets the tone on policy for the incoming Republican majority.

 

Many conservatives opposed the cromnibus because they saw it as an opportunity to defund President Obama’s executive amnesty. Others wanted to begin the process of cutting government spending after the huge success in this year’s elections. The problem with these strategies is the same problem that led to the defeat of the Obamacare defunding attempt; Harry Reid’s (D-Nev.) Senate will not pass such a bill.

Screwed By the Senate Yet Again

crvote1 cruz“It allows Republicans to show they are committed to ending Obama’s amnesty once and for all in the next Congress. If we agree it is indeed unconstitutional, we have no business funding it when the GOP controls Congress.”
– Senator Ted Cruz (TX.) before the vote on the ‘CRomnibus’ spending bill

Ted Cruz (along with Mike Lee) tried…he really did…but the Senate rejected his Constitutional proxy ‘Point of Order’ on Obama’s immigration executive action when he directly targeted the funding for the Department of Homeland Security.

Rightfully using the spending bill as leverage to try and stop the implementation of Obama’s executive ordered immigration reform, Cruz tried to defy RINO party leaders and their hanger-ons who cut deals with Obama and Reid to try and assure smooth passage of the $1.1 trillion spending bill. So in an attempt to force a Senate vote on said action as a condition for approving this disastrous bill, Cruz presented the argument that the bill violated the Constitution (and it surely does) because it would fund Obama’s plan as it rewrites current on-the-books immigration laws without any say whatsoever from Congress. And Cruz made sure he presented this to the Senate chamber in such a way that it was in keeping with long-standing Senate practices. Continue reading

RIGHT SIDE PATRIOTS…LIVE

Saturday, December 13th on RIGHT SIDE PATRIOTS on CPR Worldwide Media from 11am-1pm EST, Craig and Diane will discuss the disaster known as the $1 trillion ‘CRomnibus’ spending bill that squeaked through the House (we might have a Senate vote by tomorrow’s show), along with the Texas initiated lawsuit challenging Obama’s dictatorial amnesty plan.

Obama admits amnesty is unconstitutional

When President Obama announced his executive actions on immigration before Thanksgiving, he claimed that his position on using presidential authority to change US immigration policy had not changed. The president had repeatedly denied that he had the authority to take such action in the past according to a Politifact analysis. Last week the president openly admitted that his executive actions changed US immigration law, a power that rests solely with Congress according to the Constitution.

 

The moment of clarity took place on Nov. 25 as the president spoke at an event in Chicago. As reported by NBC Chicago, three hecklers in the audience interrupted Mr. Obama’s speech to protest the deportation of immigrant families.
