John Boehner earns admiration of Reid, Pelosi, Matthews, and the GOP establishment and its corporatist cronies
Which means — despite his ardent insistence that no one is more conservative than he (the man who, as Speaker, has presided over the single greatest explosion of debt in American history, despite the GOP having control of the purse strings) — he’s probably not doing the whole opposition party thing correctly.
Too, it bears noting that when the GOP leadership is working hand in glove with the progressive left to attempt to marginalize and destroy the TEA Party “purists” and “terrorists” (and it’s not just them engaging in such pointed and repulsive behavior, as those who’ve followed the trajectory of my blog well know; it’s their sycophants and cheerleaders, the parasites that cling to the bloated Beltway beast like Pam Anderson to an erect dick) — in an effort to, as Nancy Pelosi once let slip, return DC to the days when Party didn’t really matter — then the entire base of the GOP, along with the newly-aroused erstwhile Reagan Democrats, have no representation, and are in fact being classified as dangers to the State, potential domestic terrorists, and crazed fringe saboteurs who lack “credibility”, a diagnosis Harry Reid found “valid” and Nancy Pelosi declared “refreshing,” coming as it did from the GOP Speaker of the House.
As Mark Levin noted last evening, one of the reasons the Roveans and their corporatist network is working so hard right now to marginalize the very people who put the GOP in power, is to lay the groundwork for a narrative that addresses conservative opposition to the amnesty that is right now being worked on, again in “secret meetings”: these “racist,” “xenophobic”, “nativist” fringe actors have no credibility, Speaker Boehner, the GOP establishment, the Chamber of Commerce, and their newly-impressed allies on the Left will remind us, having lost what remained of their rational minds when they decided to come out against a bipartisan budget deal that was all about debt reduction!
Problem is, those who that shames into folding aren’t fighters to begin with. So it won’t work. And it’s just going to piss off the rest of us who know the game that’s being played, who know how scapegoating works, who understand — and have long understood — that we don’t have a representative two party system any longer, but rather only the mirage of one.
And we aren’t going to surrender to a despotic, calculating, coercive, and manipulative ruling class — no matter what they do to try putting us in our place.
The time is drawing near. The convention of the states has to happen. Because if it doesn’t, we WILL see a civil war of sorts, whether it involves secession movements or nullification or a simple decision to ignore federal regulations, court rulings, etc., and withhold revenue at the state and local level.
Because it’s either have it out soon, or have it out after the collapse. And nobody really wants Thunderdome.
