It’s time once again for the Watcher’s Council’s ‘Weasel Of The Week’ nominations, where we pick our choices to compete for the award of the famed Golden Weasel to a public figure who particularly deserves to be slimed and mocked for his or her dastardly deeds during the week. Every Tuesday morning, tune in for the Weasel of the Week nominations!

Here are this weeks’ nominees…

Rutgers Racist College Perfesser And Buffoon Brittney Cooper!!

The Noisy Room: My nomination this week goes to Rutgers University Professor Brittney Cooper for proclaiming that all white people are the face of the oppressor. So, let me get this straight… this Rutger’s professor is basically telling whites, ‘y’all look alike to me.’ What racist blather. And she hates men – it’s a twofer. Make that a threefer – she’s hates police too. Brittney Cooper is just chock full of hate – facts be damned. It doesn’t matter to her that Sandra Bland would not get out of her car when instructed by the officer to do so. He went a bit over the top when he said he’d light her up with a taser, but she was being uncooperative and belligerent. When she did get out, she argued with him, called him a bunch of vulgar names and kicked him in the shin. He told her that originally she was going to get a warning; now she was going to be arrested for assaulting a public servant. She richly earned her arrest. But it didn’t end there unfortunately and now you have racists screaming for this officer’s head because Sandra Bland decided to off herself in her cell. She hung herself using a trash can liner. This is a woman who had previously tried to commit suicide. But according to Cooper, it’s so obviously the white, male cop’s fault. How did this woman ever become a professor at a major university?

According to this professor, all whites, just for the simple fact of being white, are guilty and ipso facto – oppressors. Only whites, mind you… If you are Hispanic or a Muslim, you get a pass. But white people? Well, they are devils I hear. Never mind that crimes are committed every day by all races and all ideologies. Cooper holds a special place in her black heart for white male cops. Occasionally you see a cop go rogue or make a mistake. That’s rare. And police are pretty good about justice within their own ranks. Contrary to what Cooper is insinuating, you do not have roving, racist white cops across the nation brutalizing black individuals and killing them without cause. Most crimes that are handled by police are crimes that are without a doubt perpetrated by those in custody. According to the likes of Cooper, if you are black and step out of line, white cops should give you special treatment – a unique deference. That is social justice thinking – Liberal logic. It’s pervasive in the Marxist media and in Liberal academia. I sure wouldn’t want Cooper teaching my children in college – no matter what race they were. For being an unmitigated racist and a hate monger, Cooper has more than earned the Golden Weasel.

Baby Killer And Spare Parts Wheeler N’ Dealer, Planned Parenthood’s Dr  Mary Gatter!!

RINO En Extremis And Obama Enabler Senator Mitch McConnell!:

Ask Marion :  My WOTW Nominee is Majority Leader Senator Mitch McConnell (R-KY). Senator McConnell was caught and called out for using a procedural maneuver called “Filling the Amendment Tree” to divert attention away from the fact that he called up an amendment that would allow the Export-Import Bank to continue. Marrying the unrelated EX-IM House bill to the highway bill also made sure that he does not violate the Constitution.

Ted Cruz boldly called Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell a liar. The straw that broke the elephant’s back was the vote on reauthorizing the Export-Import Bank. McConnell went one lie too far this time said Cruz, who had voted for Obama’s Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) the first go-around in the Senate based on McConnell’s word and he famously turned against the fast-track trade authority later. Because it was based on lies. Cruz said he had to call out McConnell as matter of honor.

Leader McConnell called up a House passed bill and added the text of the highway bill to it, then he called up an amendment that allows the Export-Import Bank to continue. This married an unrelated House bill to the highway bill and EX-IM. But then Senator McConnell did something that was unexpected. He offered an amendment for a full repeal of Obamacare. Seemingly an attempt to intimidate the Tea Party faction in the Senate to take the vote on a full repeal of Obamacare and walk away from the fight over EX-IM. The problem is that nobody believes the Obamacare amendment to be anything other than meaningless vote bringing McConnell’s deception to the forefront.

Well, there it is. What a despicable group of  Weasels…ANY OF THEM COULD WIN! Check back Thursday to see which Weasel walks off with the statuette of shame!

Forum: Will The Iran Deal Pass Congress?

Every week on Monday morning , the Council and our invited guests weigh in at the Watcher’s Forum, short takes on a major issue of the day, the culture, or daily living. This week’s question: Will The Iran Deal Pass Congress?

Don Surber: It better or — RACIST!

The Independent Sentinel: Don’t forget, we don’t want to embarrass Kerry in front of the Ayatollah! That would be our worst nightmare.

The Glittering Eye: It probably won’t pass the House. Whether it passes the Senate will depend on what Chuck Schumer does. It Schumer supports it, it could pass the Senate. If he votes against it, not only is it possible that it won’t pass the Senate it’s possible it could fail in both houses by veto-proof majorities.

JoshuaPundit: It will probably not pass congress initially. Certain Democrats will be given permission to vote ‘no’ for political reasons, so they can say they did later. Chuck Schumer will likely be one of them. The president will veto it, and there will not be enough votes to override it.

One would expect a congress who was openly and deliberately lied to about the components of the ‘deal’ and was subjected to being deliberately sidelined by this president and his secretary of state to vomit this out. One would expect an electorate who cared about their country to insist on it.

The pathetic part in all of this is that what congress does really doesn’t matter too much. Thanks to the Corker Bill, the senate abrogated its constitutional power to vet treaties in this case. And our Dear Leader happily took advantage of this folly to take this to the UN, where the Security Council approved it . The Europeans and the Russians are already falling all over themselves to do deals and sell advanced weaponry to Iran…even to the point of acceding to allowing the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps and the Quds Forceto operate on EU soil starting in 2023, and delisting Iranian banks like Ansar and Mehr whom were under sanctions for material support for terrorism and for transactions involving illegal nuclear proliferation.

Iran has already put in place a framework for jihad in the Muslim parts of the Balkans. Whether they’ll bother waiting 8 years to utilize it fully is anyone’s guess. This is another clear signal to Europe’s Jews that they are no longer safe in Europe.

Governor Mike Huckabee said something yesterday about this:

“This president’s foreign policy is the most feckless in American history. It is so naive that he would trust the Iranians. By doing so, he will take the Israelis and march them to the door of the oven. This is the most idiotic thing, this Iran deal. It should be rejected by both Democrats and Republicans in Congress and by the American people. I read the whole deal. We gave away the whole store. It’s got to be stopped.”

Well said, but I would add one thing. This time, the Jews are armed.

Laura Rambeau Lee, Right Reason : Congress will reject the deal, the President will veto Congress, and Congress will not have the votes to overturn the President’s veto. So unfortunately, yes, the deal will pass, opening the world to nuclear proliferation on a massive scale.

Puma By Design: Will The Iran Deal Pass Congress? You betcha!

John Boehner has already ceded power to Mitch McConnell who is only too willing to cede authority to Barack Obama and in turn, Obama will cede, or attempt to cede our sovereignty over to the third-world dictators at the United Nations.

At the same time, had Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) and Rep. Mike Pompeo (R-Kansas) not traveled to Vienna to meet with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), Americans would not be aware of the two side deals “between the Islamic Republic of Iran and the IAEA as part of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).”

So here, we go with the dog and pony show, i.e., hearings, press conferences, tough talking rhetoric, Sunday morning television, etc.

However, in the end, Obama’s lapdogs, Boehner and McConnell will do their fair share to add one more chapter to Barack Obama’s legacy.

Ask Marion

 iran-cagle.co,m_071415

I would love to be able to answer this question with a resounding “No”! But I fear in my heart that it will squeak through and pass.

Partly because under the law Congress passed to ensure its review of any Iran deal, unless the Democrats abandon the president wholesale, this deal will stick.

Personal Liberty:

The 60-day review period begins once all of the paperwork gets submitted to Congress, per a statement from Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN) That delay would be extended to 12 days if the House and Senate send a joint resolution to the president, and Congress would have 10 more days after that to consider an override.

Opponents of the deal have to be able to override a veto on a disapproval resolution to stop it from going into effect. That’s a tall order, with 291 House votes and 67 in the Senate needed to assure an override.

In many ways, the deal seems to be about the sanctions, not the bomb!

CSMonitor: The Obama administration, by relaxing the tough sanctions on the Persian regime, is basically declaring peace with the Iranians.

For the Israelis and the Saudis, who are fighting proxy wars on several different fronts throughout the Mideast against Iran, this is tantamount to a mass betrayal.

We are avoiding war but our allies can’t.

The sanctions have hurt the Iranian people. They have stunted the growth of their economy. They made it more difficult for the Iranian armed forces to get cash to buy conventional weapons. They delegitimized the government in the eyes of the people.

In other words, the sanctions worked as a weapon in this shadow war between the Jews, the Sunni, and the Shia.

The problem for the Obama administration is that the sanctions only worked as long as there was a grand coalition that was that was willing to enforce it… And that coalition was fraying.

Sanctions are hard to enforce over the long term because the free market is hard to control. People want to do business. Iran has a lot of oil, which is attractive to the Europeans so this deal is the administration was there way to back out.

But then that brings us right back to what this whole ordeal was supposed to be about… What about a nuclear Iran? This what happens when to you send kindergartners in to do a President and a Secretary of States’ jobs.

Well, there you have it.

GcMAF, Healthcare and the NWO

Proof Doctors Being Killed Over GcMAF Cancer, Autism!

Glenn Canady 

By Marion Algier – AskMarion – H/T to MJ

Every day, new cures for Cancer, auto-immune diseases, and many other diseases and ailments are being discovered, and just as quickly those cures are buried from the public and worse yet from those who practice medicine… at least the United States.  People are now traveling to foreign countries and being cured.

BeforeIt’sNews:

From all the evidence I’ve seen, there is no doubt all the vaccines are designed to take out your immune system.  In my opinion, you’re an absolute fool if you get any vaccine!   That’s why they are DESPERATE to pass laws to get their poison into your kids now!  Dr. Dunegan was told the entire NWO plan in 1969.  He was told by Dr. Day they could cure 98% of all cancers in 1969 but they would not release those cures from the Rockefeller Institute!  He was also told that THEY would create new diseases and conditions they had never seen before!   It’s all part of the new world order agenda!  

We now have PROOF of what has killed the seven doctors and caused the disappearance of others – it was all about their GcMAF cure for cancer, autism and more!   Here’s the latest information that shows the search warrant for Dr. Bradstreet.  

 photo 5-HOLISTIC-DOCTORS-DEAD.jpg

[UPDATE] 7/22/15 A seventh doctor has suddenly died, name added at the bottom of the list.

Dr Bradstreet, formerly of Florida, now practicing in Georgia was found with a gunshot wound to his chest in a river on June 19th, 2015.

Search Warrant Going After GcMAF Cancer Cure!   -> HERE –  http://scienceblogs.com/insolence/files/2015/07/BradstreetSearchWarrant.pdf

Excerpts from the search warrant on Dr. Bradstreet showing they wanted everything on the GcMAF, including all patient information!   Are they going to kill the patients next so they can’t talk about how their tumors were disappearing? 

A. All Globulin component Macrophage Activating Factor (GcMAF), GC-Globulin, and /or any products or component substances thereof that constitute misbranded drugs under the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act.

D. Any and all electronic, digital, and paper records and documents relating to GcMAF, including but not limited to patient information, including patient records/files, consent forms, sign in sheets, billing information, medical insurance information, shipping information, communications concerning GcMAF, complaints, financial records, all of which may constitute evidence of the receipt in interstate commerce of a misbranded drug and the delivery of proffered delivery for pay or otherwise, and the fruits and instrumentalities of such, in violation of Sections 331(c) of Title 21, United States Code.

Ted Cruz – A Matter of Honor–> Stop the Lying Mitch McConnell from Reviving a Government Agency Update

By Marion Algier – AskMarion

As Theresa Monroe Hamilton of the NoisyRoom wrote: Ted Cruz threw down the conservative gauntlet in the Senate this week. This was inspiring… it is something I have never seen happen before in my lifetime. He boldly and honestly called Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell a liar. It was long overdue and immensely satisfying. The straw that broke the elephant’s back was the vote on reauthorizing the Export-Import Bank. McConnell went one lie too far this time.

Cruz voted for Obama’s Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) the first go-around in the Senate based on McConnell’s word and he famously turned against the fast-track trade authority later. Because it was based on lies.

Senator Ted Cruz, Republican White House hopeful, calls McConnell a liar:

Ted Cruz Calls Mitch McConnell A Liar On Senate Floor appeared first on Ben Swann’s Truth In Media.

From the AP:

In a stunning attack on a leader of his own party, Republican Sen. Ted Cruz accused Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of lying to him and said he couldn’t be trusted.

Cruz, a Texan who is running for president but ranks low in early polling, delivered the broadside in a speech on the Senate floor, an extraordinary departure from the norms of Senate behavior that demand courtesy and respect.

At issue are assurances Cruz claimed McConnell, (R-KY), had given that there was no deal to allow a vote to renew the federal Export-Import Bank – a little-known federal agency that has become a rallying cry for conservatives. Cruz rose to deliver his remarks moments after McConnell had lined up a vote on the Export-Import Bank for coming days.

“It saddens me to say this. I sat in my office, I told my staff the majority leader looked me in the eye and looked 54 Republicans in the eye. I cannot believe he would tell a flat-out lie, and I voted based on those assurances that he made to each and every one of us,” Cruz said.

“What we just saw today was an absolute demonstration that not only what he told every Republican senator, but what he told the press over and over and over again, was a simple lie.”

A spokesman said McConnell would have no response. The majority leader was not on the Senate floor when Cruz issued his attack.

Tea Party:

This is the closest thing to a unicorn we’ve ever seen. A government agency has shut its doors, and we have a small window of time to ensure that it stays that way!

In short, please call Republican Senators AND Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and tell them not to allow the Export Import (Ex-Im) Bank to be reauthorized. More details about this issue and why Mitch McConnell is lying to you are listed below.

It isn’t every day that you can say that a government program has been closed – especially one that amounted to nothing more than crony-corporate welfare like the Export-Import Bank.

In large part due to your efforts, the House of Representatives allowed the Ex-Im Bank authorization to lapse earlier this year. Lobbyists on K Street are now working extra hard and doling out big bucks to pressure the Senate into reauthorizing it.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has continuously opposed the reauthorization of Ex-Im publicly, but today he decided he will allow the Highway Bill to come to the floor with only two amendments – an amendment to repeal Obamacare and an amendment to reauthorize Ex-Im. We know the Obamacare vote is a show vote because it would require 60 votes to pass. This is the Senate Majority Leader’s way of trying to appease conservatives, while simultaneously allowing the crony Ex-Im bank to be reauthorized.

This suggests that the Senate Majority Leader has been lying when he has voiced his opposition to the reauthorization of Ex-Im. His actions today are about as much proof as you need to come to that conclusion.

But, earlier today on the Senate floor Senator Ted Cruz laid out the case for why Mitch McConnell is lying to all of us.

“Today is a sad day for this institution,” said Cruz with a heavy heart. “What we just witnessed this morning is profoundly disappointing.” Betrayal always is, especially from someone you really, really want to believe in. Cruz made his statements after McConnell set up a procedural vote to reauthorize the Export-Import Bank, which expired last month. Democrats claim McConnell agreed to allow a vote on attaching the Export-Import Bank to “must-pass” legislation to win support from Sen. Maria Cantwell (D-WA) for a trade package earlier this year.

When Cruz approached McConnell on the floor in a private conversation, McConnell, with biblical overtones, denied to him three times that there was such a deal. “The majority leader was visibly angry with me that I would ask him such a question,” Cruz said. “The majority looked at me and said ‘there is no deal, there is no deal, there is no deal.’” The good senator’s staff tried to warn him about McConnell, but Cruz just couldn’t believe that McConnell would lie to his face and to every other conservative out there like this. He was wrong and learned of McConnell’s treachery the hard way. But then Ted Cruz did something that no one in my memory has done… he called McConnell out for his lying ways on the Senate floor. McConnell’s errand boy say’s he has no response. Maybe not verbally, but Ted Cruz has made a very powerful and evil enemy. You know what? I don’t think he cares. Good.

Cruz pointed out that McConnell’s move to allow the Export-Import Bank vote shows that he does not always mean what he says – that he’s dishonest. “Well, we now know that when the majority leader looks us in the eyes and makes an explicit commitment that he is willing to say things that he knows are false,” Cruz added. He also pointed out that it could have ramifications down the road. That’s an understatement. We now have open warfare in the Senate and that is a good thing. “That has consequences for how this body operates,” Cruz said. “If you or I cannot trust what the majority leader tells us, that will have consequences on other legislation, as well as on how this institution operates.” Plainer and truer words have never been spoken.

It doesn’t end there. Cruz also berated McConnell for using a procedural maneuver to prevent other amendments from being offered to the Highway Bill. That’s the vehicle that will be used for the Export-Import Bank vote. In a breathtakingly hypocritical move, McConnell “filled the tree” just as Harry Reid frequently did. This was to stop amendments when Democrats had a Senate majority. Of course, when McConnell did it, Reid screamed to the heavens. McConnell also set up a vote on repealing ObamaCare. That particular maneuver was a faux move to appease conservatives – it would not have succeeded and McConnell knew it, so it was safe to set up the vote. Cruz is a smart guy and saw right through McConnell’s machinations. “I agree with Senator Reid when he said the ObamaCare amendment is a cynical amendment. Of course it is. It is empty showmanship,” Cruz added.

This is a bitter fight between the GOP leadership and conservatives and it’s about to get real. While Donald Trump is excoriating the media and bringing illegal immigration to the forefront, Cruz is in the Senate stirring the pot and calling out the Washington Cartel. Joining Cruz in the political brawl are Senators Mike Lee (R-UT) and Rand Paul (R-KY).

Mitch Mcconnell

Texas Sen. John Cornyn

From the Conservative Review:

McConnell has avoided one procedural blockade. The Senate Majority Leader has attached the highway bill to an unrelated bill from the House to make sure that he does not violate the Constitution.

Leader McConnell called up a House passed bill and added the text of the highway bill to it, then he called up an amendment that allows the Export-Import Bank to continue. This married an unrelated House bill to the highway bill and EX-IM. But then Senator McConnell did something that was unexpected.

Next, Senator McConnell offered an amendment for a full repeal of Obamacare. This seemed to be an attempt to intimidate the Tea Party faction in the Senate to take the vote on a full repeal of Obamacare and walk away from the fight over EX-IM. The problem is that nobody believes the Obamacare amendment to be anything other than meaningless vote.

McConnell then proceeded to use a parliamentary maneuver, abhorred by many conservatives and Senate procedure strict constructionists, to block all other amendments to the bill. This tactic, known as “Filling the Amendment Tree,” enraged many members of the Republican caucus who wanted to offer their own amendments to the bill. When Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) ran the Senate he frequently filled the amendment tree as a way to block Republicans from ever offering amendments. This obstructionist tactic still rubs many conservatives the wrong way and is still considered by many to be an abuse of power.

Enter Senator Ted Cruz. Cruz took to the floor and offered an amendment to condition the Iran deal on Iran recognizing the right of Israel to exist and calling on Iran to release Americans held hostage. The Cruz amendment violates the Senate’s rules, because, under the current scenario, only certain amendments are allowed.

Do you see the shady dealings that McConnell is engaged in here? It’s dirty political pool. All meant to reinstate the Export-Import Bank by whatever means necessary. It’s a slap in the face to conservatives and furthers crony capitalism in the ranks.

This is a battle for the heart and soul of the Republican Party between Progressives on the Right and Constitutional conservatives. As Reagan did, the conservatives are trying to reform the Republican Party from within. The fight will be bloody and definitive. If the Progressives win, a third party will be born and the GOP will go the way of the Whigs. Marxist rule will most likely prevail in America for the foreseeable future if that happens. If the conservatives ascend, then the GOP will take a much needed sharp turn to the right and the Tea Party and other conservatives will become the new face of the GOP. It will mark the beginning of the war to return the US to its Constitutional roots and freedoms.

From The Daily Signal:

Conservatives in the U.S. Senate are gearing up to challenge Republican leadership today, setting their sights on a plan to repeal Obamacare with 51 votes—a measure that will easily pass if the 54 GOP senators support it.

The move comes after several contentious days of fighting over the GOP leadership’s priorities. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, (R-KY), allowed a vote Sunday to reauthorize the Export-Import Bank despite his stated opposition. It passed, 67-26, but drew a sharp rebuke from conservatives.

“The American people elected a Republican majority believing that a Republican majority would be somehow different from a Democratic majority in the United States Senate,” Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, said. “Unfortunately, the way the current Senate operates, there is one party, the Washington party.”

Mike Lee and Ted Cruz couldn’t get anywhere over the weekend in the Senate on their Planned Parenthood and Iran amendments. Both were denied a roll call vote, a maneuver Senate experts said was highly unusual. Cruz called it an “unprecedented” plot by McConnell and Reid. And that is exactly what it was.

“What we just saw a moment ago is unprecedented in the annals of Senate history,” Cruz said. “It consisted of the majority leader and the minority leader denying members the ability to have votes on their amendments and indeed the ability even to have a roll call vote.” Mike Lee will be making his move for an amendment on repealing Obamacare shortly and we can only hope and pray that it goes through, but I doubt it. The Export-Import Bank measure easily passed Sunday with unanimous Democrat support. Senate Majority leader Mitch McConnell renewed funding for the Export-Import Bank despite previous promises. Then McConnell blocked defunding Planned Parenthood and Ted Cruz’ Kate’s Law, which mandates that undocumented aliens who are deported and return to the United States would receive a mandatory five year sentence in a federal penitentiary upon conviction. That piece of legislation arose after Trump turned a spotlight on Sanctuary Cities – specifically San Francisco where Kate Steinle was murdered by an illegal alien criminal who had been deported five times. Tell me again whose side McConnell is on?

Ted Cruz was predictably rebuked by McConnell’s henchmen: Texas Sen. John Cornyn, Lamar Alexander of Tennessee and Sen. Orrin Hatch of Utah. All because he exposed the backroom deals of Mitch McConnell and the fact that he’s a prolific liar. McConnell is sooo busy with his backroom deals, bribes, schemes and illicit doings that he can’t bother with being subtle anymore. I guess he figures Americans are either too stupid to get it or just aren’t paying attention. We’re broke as a nation – utterly bankrupt. Yet, McConnell is for more and more taxation and deficit spending. He doesn’t care what the fallout is down the road… he’s in it for the here and now and how much power, control and wealth he can amass personally. Constitution and America be damned. There is no difference between what Mitch McConnell does and what the Marxist Democrats do – none.

In the end, this also benefits not only McConnell, but Obama’s minions, Wall Street and the Chamber of Commerce. Cruz has criticized politicians on both sides of the aisle for this type of complicity and corruption. He has stood for principle and the Constitution unfailingly. McConnell despises him for it as do his cronies.

Ted Cruz defended himself in a special session against charges that he broke Rule 19 of the Senate rules by calling Mitch McConnell a liar concerning what he had promised him personally. Cruz says there is nothing wrong with telling the truth on the floor. There certainly isn’t and it takes courage to do so. He went on to say, “I entirely agree” with Hatch’s call for civility. But says “speaking the truth” is “entirely consistent with civility.” I couldn’t agree more.

Trump-n-Cruz

Ted Cruz has set his sights on the Washington Cartel. He means to take them down with his band of conservatives. I believe Reagan would approve and this is a fight that must happen. It’s what I have been waiting for and I roundly applaud Cruz for leading the fight in the Congress and Trump for taking on the media and rallying the grassroots. This is a brilliant divide and conquer technique playing out. I don’t know who will be president in the end, but I can tell you this… when the dust settles, the GOP will never be the same. And I suspect standing in the midst of victory will be a man of honor – Ted Cruz.

Ted Cruz

Thanks to those of you who contacted Senate Republicans and Majority Leader McConnell last week and told them NOT to allow the reauthorization of Ex-Im and instead to vote to end the Congressional Exemption from Obamacare.

Unfortunately neither went out way… the way most Americans and definitely the way Conservatives wanted those votes to go!  The EX-IM Bank was reautherized and of course, the end the Congressional Exemption from Obamacare was not passed.

We have a very limited amount of time to encourage Senate Republicans and Majority Leader McConnell to stand up for the free markets that they all claim to support and stop this crony-corporate welfare program from being reauthorized.

Please call Majority Leader McConnell and tell him to stop lying to the American people. Tell him NOT to allow the reauthorization of Ex-Im and instead to vote to end the Congressional Exemption from Obamacare. Call the other Republican Senators and tell them to take a stand for free markets and allow the crony-corporate welfare bank to end. Tell them to focus on something the American people actually care about like ending the Congressional Exemption from Obamacare.

The lobbyists are spending millions to ensure this government program is resurrected. Our only line of defense is to melt the phone lines and make these Senators see that it is in their best interest NOT to reauthorize Ex-Im.

PS – seriously; look at this screen capture of the Ex-Im website. This is about as close as we’ll get to ever seeing a real life unicorn. A government agency has actually shut its doors, and it’s up to us to make sure those doors never re-open. Call Now!

The Council Has Spoken! Our Watcher’s Council Results

https://i1.wp.com/www.romanobritain.org/Photos/roman-senate2.jpg

The Council Has Spoken! The votes have been cast and the results are in for this week’s Watcher’s Council match up.

“You know, when President Reagan, who was one of my idols, granted amnesty to about three million illegal immigrants it was based on the fact that the borders would be secured. That didn’t happen.” – Arizona Governor Jan Brewer

“To be called a sovereign nation, a nation has to be able to control its own borders. It is controlling your own destiny in a way, and we don’t control our own borders.” – Tom Tancredo

There is overwhelming bipartisan support outside of Washington that we need to finally secure our borders, enforce our laws, and stop the problem of illegal immigration.” – Ted Cruz

This week’s winning essay, The Independent Sentinel’s How A Red Diaper Baby President Is Rigging Future Elections With Illegal Immigrants is another inher fine series of articles on illegal migration. This one focuses on an issue you may not have considered before. Here’s a slice:

In January, 2012, the Sentinel posted an article about why illegal immigration is more than welcomed by Democrats; even the immigration of criminal illegals, and especially families is encouraged. If drug cartels and terrorists exploit the situation, it’s not a concern because the end goal is what matters.

One obvious reason is because they will one day vote and they support Democrats by a margin of 8 to 1, but it’s not only that.

It is a fact that the U.S. Census Bureau counts illegal aliens because the law states the census “‘is required by the U.S. Constitution to count everyone living in this country, regardless of immigration or citizenship status.’”

It’s interesting that a party that strongly advocates for a “living Constitution” wants to stick with this definition despite the rampant illegal immigration and the effect it has in making illegal aliens a strong political and economic power in the United States.

The decennial census, which counts all people regardless of immigration status, is used to allocate federal funds for education, housing, healthcare, transportation and other local needs. By some estimates, every person counted results in $1,000 in federal funds.

These statistics are used to apportion our 435 congressional districts. It also affects the number of Electoral College votes they are allotted.

As illegal immigration is promoted with our open borders policy and as millions take up residence in the United States, including criminals, the apportionment of the U.S. House of Representatives is restructured.

The Obama administration made it clear prior to the 2010 census that illegal aliens should come forward and be counted through taxpayer-funded advertisements, personal announcements, and community outreach by leftist organizations like LaRaza. Barack Obama promised they would not be deported if they reported.

Louisiana, Missouri, Montana, North Carolina, and Ohio all lost congressional seats under the counting method after 2010.

The National Review Online reported that New York, New Jersey, California, Florida, and Illinois, all liberal states, received eight additional congressional seats in the last reapportionment, with over half of those gains coming from their sanctuary cities and counties.

They also reported that data from the Migration Policy Institute show that 3.2 million of the nation’s 11 plus million illegal aliens reside in just 19 counties that include the sanctuary cities of the deep-blue states, mostly the cities of New York, Newark, LA, Chicago, and San Francisco-Oakland.

California flipped from solid red to solid blue after their open borders policies became entrenched.

Dhimmitude: Empire State Building Towers Illuminated in Green for Eid

screenshot empire state building tower lights go green for EID

Last night, less than 48 hours after a jihadist killed four Marines and one police officer[i],the Empire State Building illuminated its towers in the color of green for the three-day celebration Muslim of Eid al-Fitr, which marks the end of Ramadan.

According to an ESB spokesperson, this is not the first lighting of what somewhere along the line has been designated a “tradition” by the ESB’s Progressive and extremely political owners. (Suggested reading: Empire State Building Owners Donate Heavily To, Owned By Democrats)

Clearly, it never occurred to the owners of ESB to cancel last night’s lighting, tradition or not in light of Thursday’s Chattanooga Islamic terrorist attack. Priorities, you know. (sarcasm)

This is one of those moments when advocates political correctness which is selective and always on the wrong side of things deserves a good kick in the rear.

Rupert Murdoch Wants to Stop Donald Trump, But First He’s Got to Rein In Roger Ailes

Donald Trump on Fox News

By Gabriel Sherman –  NY Magazine

The mounting problem Donald Trump poses to Republicans is also a mounting problem for the country’s most powerful conservative media mogul: Rupert Murdoch. This morning’s New York Times gives front-page treatment to the billionaire grudge match that has become a major story line in this year’s (already) fractious GOP primary. The piece by political reporters Amy Chozick and Ashley Parker chronicles Murdoch’s intensifying efforts over the past week to blunt Trump’s surge to the top of the crowded GOP field. In recent days, Murdoch has tweeted that Trump is “wrong” and “embarrassing.” On Sunday, the New York Post mocked Trump on the cover with the headline “DON VOYAGE” and featured him marooned on a life raft being circled by a shark. The same day, The Wall Street Journal ran a scathing editorial that labeled Trump a “catastrophe.”

One reason Murdoch is taking to social media and deploying his publishing properties to attack Trump may be the simple fact that he hasn’t been able to control his most powerful media organ: Fox News. According to sources, Murdoch has tried — and failed — to rein in Fox News Chairman and CEO Roger Ailes, who, insiders say, is pushing Fox to defend Trump’s most outlandish comments. This week, Ailes told his senior executives during a meeting that Murdoch recently called him and asked if Fox could “back off the Trump coverage,” a source told me. Ailes is said to have boasted to his executives that he told Murdoch he was covering Trump “the way he wanted to.” The implication was that he wasn’t going to budge. 

Nathaniel Brown, a Murdoch spokesperson, declined to comment. Fox News spokeswoman Irena Briganti did not return a call seeking comment. 

It’s understandable that Murdoch would be frustrated. Fox News has been a ringleader of the Trump circus. Shortly after Trump jumped into the race, he had a “2-to-3 hour” private lunch with Ailes, sources told me. Last month, Fox gave Trump more airtime than any other candidate. And, according to sources, the channel’s personalities are taking an active role in aiding Trump, both on- and off-camera. One source explained that Ailes has instructed The Five co-host Eric Bolling to defend Trump on air. A review of Bolling’s comments shows that over the past week, he’s gone to bat for Trump numerous times. Last Friday, for example, Bolling complained that conservatives shouldn’t be criticizing the real-estate mogul. “There’s a problem in America, and it’s not Donald Trump,” Bolling declared. He continued to make pro-Trump arguments on Monday and Tuesday’s shows. Another Trump ally is Fox political analyst and pollster Pat Caddell. According to a source with direct knowledge, Caddell has been speaking to Trump “almost every day” about his campaign. “Everything coming out of Trump’s mouth sounds like Pat,” the source said. This morning, Fox & Friends — a show that is used by Ailes to inject his point of view into debates — ran a fawning interview with Trump. At one point in the conversation, co-host Steve Doocy gushed that “someone told me yesterday Donald Trump is like a Navy SEAL.” For his part, Trump has been grateful for the Fox & Friends support. Yesterday, at a campaign event in South Carolina where he gave out Lindsey Graham’s personal cell-phone number, Trump heaped praise on Fox & Friends’ Doocy, Brian Kilmeade, and Elisabeth Hasselbeck. “They’re great people,” he said.

Murdoch’s public and private attempts to temper Ailes make Sunday’s Wall Street Journal editorial all the more fascinating. The piece — which carries no mention of Fox — excoriated the conservative media “apologists” that have been backing Trump. “Too many have adopted the view that there can be no adversary to their right,” the Journal said. “This was mainly a left-wing affliction in the last century as many liberals refused to condemn Communists. But today many on the right seem willing to indulge any populist outburst no matter how divorced from reality or insulting to most Americans. If Donald Trump becomes the voice of conservatives, conservatism will implode along with him.” 

Inside Fox News, the Journal editorial is clearly seen by some as a message to Ailes. It seems doubtful, however, that he is listening. “Roger claims not to care,” an insider said.
