The  Monster Rides Again!

The Monster Rides Again!

Well Monster readers, I am officially back in the saddle, and none too soon it appears as the loss of the Republic two days ago with the re-election re-installation of the Dictator By Executive Order is prompting a slew of new United Nations and Global Elites’ assaults on our sovereign liberty.  NOT that Romney would have been any better, and in some cases, much worse.  The self-centered little shit currently in the WH is a known commodity and there is no chance of a herd of corporate owned moos being wooed, distracted and then betrayed by their glorious leader.  We KNOW who Barack Obama is, we know what to expect, and where to look for the smoking guns.

AYFKM?: Who Are The Real Financial Terrorists?

In yesterday’s commentary, I pointed out that the name calling starting with ‘racists’ to ‘astroturf‘ to ‘domestic terrorists’ to ‘radicals and extremists‘ to ‘hobbits‘ was not going to make one iota of difference to tea party patriots who don’t give a flying rat’s a** what the left, the right, and the political elite call us because we are trying to keep our children from being sold down the river by those very same greed-driven pirates.  I pointed out that the political class were going to have to do better with the name calling.  Enter ‘financial terrorists’ (and our reaction is….yawn…whatever…we’ll still be here waiting you bastards out when it all comes tumbling down…and rest assured it will; one can only loot an entire world’s population for so long.)

GOP To Raise Taxes In Exchange For Medicare And Social Security Cuts?

GOP To Raise Taxes In Exchange For Medicare And Social Security Cuts?

A few gooses are about to get cooked, but then again, what did we expect from the other side of the globalist coin?

According to Newsmax, Senator Jon Kyl has stated that there will be upwards of $200 billion in ‘new revenue’ on the debt ceiling deal and the Washington Post is reporting Obama stating the democrats will make significant cuts to Social Security and Medicare.  TheHill is reporting that Boehner’s GOP is considering upwards of $1 trillion in new revenues.  Does that not just warm your heart and make you want to go back to sleep and let the elites run the world?

Let’s Compare: Boehner Vs. Pelosi

Gracious, Nancy is not…

John Boehner’s speech welcoming the new SOTH, Nancy Pelosi, 1.18.2007:

Nancy Pelosi’s speech about herself and the democrats’ agenda, 1.5.2011:

Pelosi’s partisan parting shot

By Byron York

At mid-day Wednesday, it fell to now-former Speaker Nancy Pelosi to introduce her successor, John Boehner, as he was sworn in as Speaker of the House.  Some might have forgotten, but four years ago, on January 4, 2007, it was Boehner (not the departing Dennis Hastert) who introduced Pelosi when she first became Speaker.  A look at the two speeches — Pelosi introducing Boehner and Boehner introducing Pelosi — shows striking differences.  Boehner’s 2007 speech, coming after Republicans were trounced at the polls in November 2006, was self-effacing, gracious, and non-partisan.  Pelosi’s 2011 speech, coming after Democrats were trounced at the polls in November 2010, was self-serving, sharp, and partisan.

Start with Pelosi introducing Boehner.  The outgoing Speaker began with some boilerplate about the importance of the occasion and then turned to a subject she has addressed many times in the past four years: herself.  Her time as the first woman Speaker, Pelosi said, “means that more doors are wide open for all of America’s daughters and granddaughters.”  Then Pelosi cast herself as the defender of America’s children in general, “their health, their education, the safety of the air they breathe, the water they drink, and the food they eat.”

Pelosi then launched into a list of Democratic legislation — college loans, financial regulation, and, especially, national health care (which she referred to as a “patient’s bill of rights.”) that was passed during her time as Speaker.  That led to a recitation of Obamacare talking points.  “It means children with pre-existing conditions can get coverage; young people can stay on their parents’ plans until age 26; pregnant women and breast and prostate cancer patients can no longer be thrown off the insurance rolls; our seniors are paying less for needed prescription drugs; [and] taken together, this will save the taxpayers $1.3 trillion,” Pelosi said.

She wasn’t finished.  Pelosi touted the Lilly Ledbetter Act, veterans’ legislation, and ended on a commitment, not observed during her time in the Speaker’s chair, to evaluate every piece of legislation on the basis of whether or not it creates jobs.  Only then did Pelosi offer a few kind words for Boehner.

Contrast that with Boehner’s speech introducing Pelosi on January 4, 2007.  It was about 40 percent shorter and began with Boehner celebrating Pelosi’s achievement as first woman Speaker.  “Today marks an occasion that I think the Founding Fathers would view approvingly,” he said.  “And my fellow Americans, whether you are a Republican, a Democrat, or an Independent, today is a cause for celebration.”

Boehner On Obamacare: ‘Never, Ever, Ever Implemented’

Bret Baier interviewing John Boehner about the total repeal of Obamacare.  Bret does not seem to understand that a sizable percentage of Americans want to cut our losses, REPEAL the 2700 page fiasco, and START OVER!  Mr. Boehner is saying all the right things when it comes to repealing Obamacare; what remains to be seen is if the GOP has the backbone to do it.

Boehner: “Trust me. I’m Going To Make Sure This H’care Bill Is Never, Ever, Ever Implemented”

The entire ten minute interview:

John Boehner: ‘Change Course’, 11.2.2010 (Video)

John Boehner and Michael Steele on election night.  The first four minutes of this video is Megyn Kelly interviewing Michael Steel. Mr. Boehner’s speech starts at 4:50 with the usual ‘change’ rhetoric but it does have a memorable line concerning Barry’s agenda:

The peoples’ priorities will be our priorities, and the peoples’ agenda will be our agenda…While our new majority will server as your voice in the peoples’ house, we must remember it is the president who sets the agenda for our government. The American people have sent an unmistakable message to him tonight, and that message is: Change Course.

John Boehner Election Eve Speech, Ohio, 11.1.2010 (‘Patriots’)

I may not agree that John Boehner should be Speaker as my personal preference is for a true Constitutionalist like Ron Paul to be wielding the gavel, BUT he does understand that Americans are NOT the enemy and shouldn’t be punished.

Yet another open mouth/insert foot truthful moment from the Narcissist-in-Chief.

Obama seeks to blunt Republican attack over comment

(Reuters) – President Barack Obama said on Monday he should not have used the word “enemies” to describe his political opponents as Republicans sought to make an issue of the comment a day before congressional elections.

Obama, in an interview with talk radio host Michael Baisden, said, “I probably should have used the word ‘opponents’ instead of enemies.”

He was backtracking from a comment he made a week ago in an interview with Univision radio in which he sought to persuade Hispanics to vote for Democratic candidates instead of Republicans.

“If Latinos sit out the election instead of, ‘we’re going to punish our enemies and we’re going to reward our friends who stand with us on issues that are important to us’ — if they don’t see that kind of upsurge in voting in this election, then I think it’s going to be harder,” Obama had said.

Since when does an ‘American President’ speak about punishing other Americans? Who the Frak is this guy? Stalin, Lenin, Hitler, Mao, Castro, Chavez?

Boehner, 11.1.2010:

McConnell’s Single Biggest Goal: Consolidating Power (UPDATED)

McConnell’s Single Biggest Goal: Consolidating Power (UPDATED)

Every once in a while, they slip up, and tell you what they are really thinking…and we should be worried.

I have been fretting since I realized some three months ago that the Republicans are going to take control of the Senate as well as the House, and Mitch McConnell and John Boehner are going to be ‘the leadership’ for the country. How scary is it to know that the two branches of the same party (Big Government) are sparring so as to appear to be enemies?  How scary is it to know that we are moving from the whips and electric cattle prods of Nancy and Harry’s regime to the velvet gloved iron fist of McConnell and Boehner?

McConnell’s comment to National Journal and Boehner’s ‘compromise’ on tax cuts only highlights what we all know to be true about the District of Criminals; it’s all about retaining power and control – not taking care of the country whose wealth has been drained and capital sent overseas.

If Americans want real change in Washington, Sen. Jim DeMint and Rep. Ron Paul should be the leadership team to push the agenda that demands a rollback of 100 years of progressive nudge and stops the ‘global governance’ crowd from delivering a fatal blow to America’s sovereignty through debt.

A McConnell/Boehner team is not written in stone; it’s just more District of Criminals ‘business as usual’.

The scary actual U.S. government debt

Boston University economist Laurence Kotlikoff says U.S. government debt is not $13.5-trillion (U.S.), which is 60 per cent of current gross domestic product, as global investors and American taxpayers think, but rather 14-fold higher: $200-trillion – 840 per cent of current GDP. “Let’s get real,” Prof. Kotlikoff says. “The U.S. is bankrupt.”

Writing in the September issue of Finance and Development, a journal of the International Monetary Fund, Prof. Kotlikoff says the IMF itself has quietly confirmed that the U.S. is in terrible fiscal trouble – far worse than the Washington-based lender of last resort has previously acknowledged. “The U.S. fiscal gap is huge,” the IMF asserted in a June report. “Closing the fiscal gap requires a permanent annual fiscal adjustment equal to about 14 per cent of U.S. GDP.”

After the Wave

McConnell and Boehner are creatures of Congress who are not driven by any desire to live at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

McConnell frets, however, about controlling expectations among tea party activists likely to want—and quite possibly demand—that bigger GOP numbers in Congress produce big things: a swift repeal of the health care reform law; a massive U-turn on federal spending; and immediate action to reduce the national debt. Tea party darling and likely freshman mover-and-shaker Marco Rubio of Florida, for instance, summed up the movement’s ax-wielding gusto in July: “Every day we postpone acting decisively to rein in wasteful spending and cut the debt, we pile even more on the backs of millions of young Americans.”

In one sign of conditional unity, Sen. Jim DeMint, the South Carolina Republican who backed many tea party candidates in open defiance of McConnell and other GOP leaders, says he isn’t spoiling for a leadership fight. But note the qualification. “I have no intention of challenging the leadership,” DeMint told National Journal. “What I have done over the last year has ruffled a lot of feathers in our conference. The chance of me getting the votes is not realistic at this point.” But DeMint says that Senate Republicans must change the way they approach spending and do it soon, or tea party activists will lose faith and rebel even more.

“We have to understand, this is not so much a Republican victory.… I see it more as a realignment of American politics,” DeMint said. “We’re going to have more Republicans, and the composition is going to be more of a limited-government idea. The biggest challenge we have is to change the idea that senators are here to do what is best for their states, to get all they can for their states and the interests operating in their states.”

And this is where DeMint is spoiling for a confrontation. He wants Republicans to cut spending no matter what effect those reductions have on their home-state constituents. He says this would be a “definitional” culture shift among Republicans, and he considers the pledge made by all the Senate GOP candidates—including relative moderates such as Mark Kirk of Illinois and Carly Fiorina of California—to adopt the no-earmarks policy the beginning of that change. DeMint sees earmarks as a symptom of a deeper problem: the structural bias for more discretionary spending and the clout that comes with it.

To reverse that trend, DeMint wants to upend generations of bipartisan logrolling. What’s his ask? That GOP leaders permanently exclude themselves from the Appropriations Committee, which allocates non-entitlement spending. If that rule had been in place during this Congress, three GOP leaders would have been kicked off Appropriations—McConnell, Tennessee’s Lamar Alexander, and Alaska’s Lisa Murkowski. “If we are going to cut spending, we have to take the power away from those responsible for spending,” DeMint says. “We have to say no to a power base that can be corrupting over time, not in the sense of anything criminal, but in the sense that your focus is spending and not cutting.”

McConnell was icily noncommittal about DeMint’s idea: “We will debate any rule changes brought before the conference.” Kyl is downright opposed. “That suggests there’s something wrong with [the current system],” he said. DeMint’s point is that there is, in fact, something wrong with the current system. Thus, Senate Republicans may find themselves divided over their own rules even before they begin to grapple with Obama over spending, tax rates, or entitlements.

I’m worried…

UPDATE: I’m even more worried now.  Chuck Schumer as the Senate Leader?

John Boehner: Tea Party Patriots Are ‘The Tip Of The Iceberg’

Mr. Boehner at a Christian Science Monitor breakfast this morning explaining who Tea Party Patriots are in response to a question about the new Tea Party Caucus started by Michele Bachmann.  He comments to a roomful of people who appear to be beltway insiders that the people at the tea parties are just the tip of the iceberg.

Responding to a question about Rep. Michele Bachmann’s (R-MN) Tea Party Caucus, House Minority Leader John Boehner (R-OH) says although he declined to join the caucus, the political movement “should not be dismissed. “These folks are the tip of the iceberg,” says Boehner. “They represent the same values, concerns, frustration, anger and fear that you see from tens of millions of other Americans who aren’t on the streets yet.

This iceberg is what the thin-skinned Obama administration is tweaking about and trying to attack or gloss over at every possible opportunity knowing full well that the tea parties are the real hope for the future of the nation.  The Tea Party is the movement of common sense where right is right and wrong is wrong; NOT…“by any means necessary”.

For any republican candidates that may be reading this post; better get plugged in or you will be left behind.
