Back Room Deals Dooming the Republic?

Are we being sold out by politicians?

Source,

You might have heard that Senate Republicans “saved” the filibuster yesterday.

But thanks to a reported backroom deal between John McCain and Harry Reid, the filibuster wound up effectively being a dead letter against the nominations in question.

As I’ve told you, Harry Reid was threatening to gut the filibuster — and was even threatening to break the Senate rules to do it.

But Reid didn’t even have to follow through on this threat to get everything he wanted and then some.

Reid is now pretending he gave something up by withdrawing two of Barack Obama’s nominees to the National Labor Relations Board — Obama’s two bogus “recess” appointees who have continued to issue decisions even after a federal court ruled their appointments were unconstitutional.

But it is a Pyrrhic victory at best.

You see, John McCain promised Harry Reid that Senate Republicans would agree to ANY new NLRB nominees, no questions asked.

Not only that, as part of the “deal” Republicans promised to expedite the confirmation process.

And just hours after McCain and Reid cut the deal behind closed doors, Barack Obama had his own secret meeting with top AFL-CIO union boss Richard Trumka.

Obama has already announced Big Labor’s new hand-picked nominees, both career union lawyers.

The fact is, Harry Reid is facing no price for his outrageous threat to break the Senate rules and gut the filibuster.

And because John McCain put together a preemptive surrender on the new nominees, Harry Reid, Barack Obama, and Richard Trumka are going to get exactly what they want: A biased National Labor Relations Board that will continue to run roughshod over worker freedom.

What John McCain is ignoring is that the filibuster isn’t just about the rights of the minority party in the Senate.

It’s about you, the American people.

So the question is not whether or not the union bosses and Harry Reid, with the help of Senator McCain, won — they did.

The question going forward is whether you and I on future executive branch and judicial nominations can inject some backbone into the Senate Republican Minority.

It’s an open question, but it’s clear we must try.

Thanks again for all you do.

Constitutional Crisis Gun Control evil Harry Reid.

Now imagine this, you have a man in the Senate that has not had the Balls to put a budget to a vote and allow it to pass for more than four years but he wants to pass an unconstitutional Gun control Law.

This is very important. Stand up for your rights and vote in 2014 because that is the only thing these people will understand. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is preparing to break through Senator Rand Paul’s filibuster as early as Wednesday afternoon, convinced pro-gun Republicans will run for the hills at the first sign of a fight. Tim, without your IMMEDIATE action, I’m afraid he just may be right. That’s why it’s absolutely vital you sign your Emergency Fax Petition IMMEDIATELY.

My staff has delivered 192,673 Emergency Fax Petitions to U.S. Senate offices in just the last 72 hours. If you have already signed your petition, please forward the Emergency Fax Petition to everyone you know and ask them to take action. You see, as of right now, one dozen Senators have pledged to join Senator Paul’s filibuster.

McCain Betrayed us?

Did John McCain end up doing the wrong thing at the wrong time, and did the media have everything to do with why we are in this mess now?

 

John McCain, has been up in the Senate allegedly for far too long and he does not represent the values that America was born with, the actions of our Fathers, who took courage and fortitude and made the ultimate sacrifice, that we might be free, perhaps the time that Senator McCain spent in captivity changed him in ways that no one can truly understand unless they were treated in the same way but he was not the only prisoner of war, he did made it out.

Many others did not, the truth is that to call the American people Hobbits, is a betrayal of conscious and it is a shame on those that have sacrificed everything in service for their nation.

Received in an Email, today

 Amazing stuff folks, it is really like watching a horror movie on TV only its real.

Dear Patriot,
 
With political games being played with the debt ceiling and the federal budget, it’s refreshing for us to see great patriots like Sen. Rand Paul and Sen. Mike Lee speak the truth. These Senators, who were elected on a wave of tea party support last year, are standing up to the dinosaurs in the Senate left over from the Bush administration. These dinosaurs, like Mitch McConnell, Lindsey Graham, and Orrin Hatch, were leading the GOP when it lost its way, running up massive debt while Republicans controlled all three branches of government!

Now these dinosaurs want to force through a sham of a debt ceiling deal, and the freshmen Senators Rand Paul and Mike Lee are telling them, “Not so fast.” They’ve introduced their own version of Cut-Cap-Balance, a bill that will actually cut trillions of dollars in spending, rather than just purport to do so. The bill will also send a balanced budget amendment to the states as a condition of raising the debt ceiling. Speaker Boehner’s plan, in contrast, merely requires a vote on the amendment.

Western Representation PAC is particularly proud of our support for Rand Paul in 2008. We need more Senators like Rand Paul and Mike Lee, and we are looking ahead to 2012 to see where we can make an impact. The electoral map is ripe for tea party candidates, and we will be active in states like Utah, Texas, Montana, and Nebraska. We’re going to continue to support candidates like Rand Paul and Mike Lee, and you can support our efforts to retake the Senate for Conservatives by making a donation –HERE–

It’s not enough for the GOP to take control of the Senate, but Conservatives need to take control of the GOP. With your donation, you can help us nominate more great patriots like Rand Paul and Mike Lee.
