“Dem. Rep. Cuellar: WH Called Me For Speaking Out against President”

What’s so funny about this is that Mark Levin, on his show, played the audio of Cuellar speaking out against the surge of illegals and the Obama Administration’s failure to see it coming [which, wrong assertion:  they saw it coming, invited it to come, and are supportive of its effects, which match the aims of a Cloward-Piven Marxist strategy to crash the system and destroy the middle class. But that’s just nitpicking – ed], then joked that Rep Cueller had better be careful, because a “thin-skinned” President like Obama won’t take kindly to being contradicted by someone in his own party.

And he was exactly right.

Which isn’t some miracle of prognostication, but rather an observation gleaned by observation and empirical fact:  Obama likes to take to the stage and try to ironize away those who call him a cold, malignant narcissist and imperial President.  He loves the cheers he gets when his own corrupted vision of himself is reinforced by handpicked sycophants sent in to keep his spirits up.  He’s a permanent campaigner for a reason:   he can’t handle criticism, and those who dare criticize him need to be punished.

The truth is, President Pant Crease, sold to us as a center-realist and pragmatic thinker — a faculty lounge genius — is a rank, programmed, Marxist ideologue. His is — and always has been — to “pragmatism” what  Daisy Duke was to full-length slacks.

And politically speaking, he’s never, ever, ever, ever, never, ever, ever, ever ever been a “good man” — which is precisely why it was so outrageous and self-congratulating to give him that kind of early cover.


Representative Henry Cuellar (D., Texas) hasn’t been shy about speaking out against the Obama administration’s handling of the border crisis, and that apparently earned him a phone call from the someone at the White House.

“Yes, I have,” Cuellar said on Fox & Friends on Wednesday when asked if he had received a talking-to. “But let me just say that I’m more concerned not about who gets angry at me at the White House; I’m more concerned about my constituents who want to find a practical solution to this question that we’re facing down there at the border.”

“Who called you?” host Brian Kilmeade asked.

“We’ll just leave it like that,” Cuellar responded.

“Did they tell you to pipe down?” Kilmeade pressed again.

“We’ll just leave it like that,” the congressman repeated. “But notice what I’m doing: I’m still talking about it.”

Sounds like a nascent Reagan Democrat.  Or even a TEA Partier.

Oh, and notice, too, that he’s not in need of any Hispandering from Jeb Bush or the GOP establishment, whose goal it is to provide cheap labor for their cronies and kickback champions.  Instead, he seems, as a man close to the crisis, to be married to principle — at least on this issue, and at least as regards his own empirical observations.

Which means he has all the makings of an outlaw.

A designation you’re supposed to laugh at and dismiss, because it’s only always been about me trying to make money and never about fidelity to first principles.  Because doesn’t everyone just go for hits and links?  I mean, isn’t that the object of the game? — the very ends that the means are designed to bring about?

  1. Don’t know the guy but wonder whether he isn’t just another ordinary Texian like those inside the Alamo fighting the Mexicans on the outside?

  2. – Many pols, to their chagrin, learn late the real problem in being a Democrat. Your local issues (all politics are local) will always be swept aside “for the greater good”, always, so you’ll always end up under the party bus.

  3. Cuellar is probably fighting back, because, much to his dismay, he realized he’s been one of the “useful idiots.”

  4. Rick Perry just got on Marine One with Jughead.

  5. If he hijacks it does it make him President? I could over-look a little thing like that.

  6. Who called you?
    Likely that she-wolf Valerie Jarrett, who could tear Cuellar’s throat out at a thousand paces.

  7. I know that the signifier “One” means “any craft owned by a branch of the Armed Forces that POTUS is riding on/in” (Marines is usually a helicopter, and USAF is usually that special jumbo jet), but has there ever been an “Army One” or “Coast Guard One”? Bush was on “Navy One” when he did the carrier landing, but I cannot recall any use of Army or Coast Guard to transport a POTUS

  8. All Cuellar has to do is say, with a concerned and disapproving, disappointed look on his face, “Look, we have a serious problem whether the president wants to deal with that problem or not. This is not going away and this is not good for our party and it is not good for the democratic hispanic alliance he currently benefits from. The president needs to stop frowning at me and step up to handle this or he’s not the sort of man we should have voted to be president. I hate to say that but there it is.This is the work that comes with the big bucks. “

  9. If Cuellar says that to Obama, Serr8d, he will find himself declared UNMUTUAL by the Left because, as far as The Jarrett Junto is concerned, all is proceeding according to plan.

    Damn, they think this Cloward-Piven maneuver is going to work – and it just may…maybe.

  10. Cuellar is in a state where leftists swing right as elections approach, where brown people are upset and saying so despite the best efforts of the news to not report it, (No, 2nd gen US citizens descended from Mexican immigrants are NOT excited about Hondurans getting amnesty) and a lame duck has little to no room under his bus.

    Calculus says Obama is earning rocks and whoever doesn’t throw them will miss out big time. Expect Wendy Davis to take a swing at him soon.

  11. Cuellar is in the 28th district which is south of San Antonio to the border. He knows the waters in which he fishes.

  12. Notice this story about protesters arrested at Murrieta. And a second one.

    Janet Mathieson, 22, of Claremont was being questioned by police about the reported assault, and the officer was going to arrest her for obstructing the officer in the course of his investigation, a police report said.

    According to the police account, that prompted Pouyan Bokaei, 33, of Maryland, to try to free Mathieson from arrest. The officer let go of the woman as he tried to arrest Bokaei, according to the police account.

    Mathieson then reportedly jumped on the officer’s back, police said.

    More police arrived, and while Mathieson and Bokaei were being arrested, three others jumped into the fray to free the first two, police said. They were identified as Jacqueline Sanchez, 26, of Los Angeles, Jessica Rey, 25, of Menifee, and Salvador Chavez, 24, of Los Angeles.

    All but Bokaei remained jailed Saturday morning in lieu of $10,000 bail each, accused by police of violating the old California lynching statute.

    Is it mentioned just what side these “protesters” were on? No, but they weren’t there to stop the buses. They were there to stop the protesters, BAMN. from the Los Angeles Peoples Media Facebook page.

    Five people were violently arrested today in #Murrieta after an anit immigration protester assaulted a pro immigration protester.

    Urgent! Call in now to help out some brutally arrested anti-racist comrades!

    5 Comp@s were kidnapped by police today at the Murrieta Border Patrol station. They came to protest against the white supremacists who were trying to prevent undocumented child refugees from being let free. The racists assaulted one of our people, and the police then teamed up with them to violently arrest 5 more. We are still waiting for formal charges and more information – but now we need you to please contact the Murrieta Police Department inmate line!

    Call (951) 304-2677 (ext. #8, the chief’s office, at which you’ll be asked to leave a message) to demand the release of Jessica Rey, Janet Matthieson, Salvador Chavez, Jacqueline Sanchez, and Pooh-yan Bohkhai. Your support in calling is appreciated and if you wish to be present in support of the forthcoming immigrants/refugees people are still at the Murrieta Border Patrol Station in solidarity.

    A 22 year old assaults an elderly woman and then she and four comrades assault the cop arresting her. Breitbart has video. But the news media just make it look like the ones protesting the buses are the bad violent guys.

  13. Per Wikipedia, the Army used to share the executive helicopter duty with the Marines from ’57 to ’76, when the Marines got it exclusively; there’s never been a CG One, though they did have a CG Two when Biden was flown over Atlanta during the floods in ’09; and surprisingly enough, the Viking Dubya flew was the only Navy One.

  14. Geoff: Is it mentioned just what side these “protesters” were on?

    They were on the ‘side of the Angels’, obviously.

    Of course, when the angel Lucifer betrayed God, he was joined by a bunch of angels, so….

  15. I was wondering what is occurring at these holding facilities that DHS and the admin doesnt want elected officials to witness. Probably just the swearing of allegiance, not to the republic of course but to the democrat party…that and the completing of the voter registration forms with the demorcat box pre-checked.

  16. but has there ever been an “Army One”

    Screw Wikipaedia, here it is in all its glory at the Army Aviation Museum. Clickez vous on “VCH-34A Army one” or the link next to it for a video about it.

  17. Choctaw, eh? Fucking raciss helicopters.

  18. Fucking raciss helicopters.

    Indeed, and probably the real reason they transitioned to the VH-3A_D “Sea King”, and not the BS that it had two engines. It also can float for a bit, so they may have been anticipating a Teddy Kennedy presidency as well.

    OTOH, they now also have a version of the UH-60 Blackhawk called the VH-60 – I am not making this up – Whitehawk. That has to be about eleventy kinds of raciss what with white privilege, marginalizing the Noble Native Americans, and who flies in it.

  19. Diplomad:

    *** I notice that Obama and the Democrats have wasted no time taking advantage of the crisis they created by asking for nearly $4 billion to address the situation on the “border.” I was glad to see that some members of the lethargic GOP actually have bestirred themselves to take note of the disaster being deliberately created by Obama and the Democrats. I don’t think the budgetary request has much chance of getting through, Obama knows it, and is playing games to blame the mess on the former border on the Republicans. Hadn’t the Democrats told us that what once had been the border was secure? There was no need to finish the border fence? That deportations were at a record high and illegal border crossings at a record low? Ha! Minor lies told by the most untruthful administration in US history.

    I also notice that the UN is jumping into the game calling upon the US and Mexico to treat this like a refugee crisis. Really? These so called refugees from drug violence, mostly, apparently, from Honduras–but who knows? It seems everything is a lie about this–apparently have traveled over 1000 miles through Guatemala and Mexico before ending up at the US border. Did they seek asylum in either of those two countries? Nope. Did they think of crossing over into neighboring Nicaragua? Or making the under 300 mile trip to peaceful Costa Rica? Nope and nope, again. What has Mexico done? It has funneled them, including apparently known criminal elements, to the US border–what normally would be considered a hostile act, but done in the knowledge that the US misadministration wants this “crisis.” Mexico is always willing to give the US a helping hand when it comes to inserting the 12-gauge into our national mouth. ***

  20. Hey, what crisis, the Amazing President Obama has fixed it all even while playing golf, hoisting some brews, and turning down a, much desired, doobie.

  21. heh, Sheila Jackson Lee, answering the question on everyone’s mind: “What’s it like to be governed by a moron?” twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, three-hundred sixty-five days a year, two year terms at a chunk.

  22. Democrats are multi-culti. They have morons and scumbuckets.

  23. She Sheila!

  24. I was wondering what is occurring at these holding facilities that DHS and the admin doesnt want elected officials to witness. Probably just the swearing of allegiance, not to the republic of course but to the democrat party…that and the completing of the voter registration forms with the demorcat box pre-checked.

    Maybe a little para-military training for prospective child-soldiers?

  25. I wonder if Miss Jones or her parents have any used-to-be-obligatory naked baby in the bathtub photos. She could mail one to the scum-bag with a “pay-up bitch” note attached.

  26. I was wondering what is occurring at these holding facilities that DHS and the admin doesnt want elected officials to witness.

    Probably that the majority aren’t wide eyed waifs, but gang bangers, miscellaneous thugs, and mohammedans.

  27. I read yesterday that yer rich Arabs were paying $50K to coyotes to cross over with the waifs.

    Which probably explains that prayer rug someone found on the Mexico side of the fence.

  28. More Sheila goodness.

  29. I read yesterday that yer rich Arabs were paying $50K to coyotes to cross over with the waifs.

    ISIS has between 500 million and 1 billion to spend, with more coming in each day. And they have vowed to bring terror and their caliphate to the USA. 50k is a bargain price.
