Skip to comments.Sen. DeMint: Washington Is Lost for Now
Posted on 12/02/2012 10:08:06 PM PST by Olog-hai
Weve lost the battle in Washington for now, says Sen. Jim DeMint, R-S.C. The new goals, he says, are for conservatives to prove their principles work in states and to defend against President Obamas effort to steamroll whats left of the Republican Party here in Washington.
As a guest on Istook Live!, DeMint agreed that Obama aims to crush his opposition now so they cannot resist his agenda over the next four years. Said the senator, They smell blood in the water and theyll keep pushing theyre not coming our way or coming to the middle to try and govern.
However, he acknowledges that a very few Republicans will go along with the presidents tax demandsbut only those officials who probably arent real Republicans in the first place.

Then let’s get their representing names out into public view so the constituents responsible for their seats can express their concerns.
That is an accurate assessment.
The GOP and conservatives have failed to advance their ideas and philosophies.
If an older person does not get to a younger person as early as possible and plant the seeds of freedom, then the enemy will absolutely get to them as early as they can and plant the seeds of slavery. That is how it works.
Beyond that, controling the media, all levels of education, and entertainment is a form of mass mind control, and it is shockingly effective.
Until conservatives take drastic action in those areas and in other areas which I will not mention, no progress will be made to turn this around, in fact it will get much, much worse.
IOW, instead of DC being “lost” in a fair fight, the GOP threw it away.
Let us watch the mighty House Republicans stand tall like the watchmen upon the wall, led by that vigilant hero John Boehner.... may God help us all.
When do you think Boehner is going to figure this out? His only option is to call a press conference and call out Obama. Tell him if he leaves town he can forget any negotiations. Then adjourn the House sine die. Go home and start makes speechesin his district. telling the country what the SOB has been doing.
Oh, YOU CANNOT BE SERIOUS? (/s) I lost a 30 year “friend” a couple weeks ago because I’ve been passing on to her articles about what is happening....and she calls me “toxic.” (She did not vote for the “O”) There are soooo many who are oblivious.
This is the culmination of decades of Republicans attempt to ‘dance with the devil’; rationalizing that it'll all work out in the end.
The warnings and red flags were out there all along but the GOPe chose to ignore it. Now we all will pay the price.

IOW, instead of DC being lost in a fair fight, the GOP threw it away.
That has been their job for a couple of decades now.
The GOP did throw it away, but to be fair, so did the sleeping giant.
It remained asleep, and as far as I can tell, it is going to continue to remeain asleep.
The fact of the matter is freedom must be fought for and fought for constantly and ferociously. If a free person on this earth intends to remain free, then that person must eliminate any threat to that freedom outright, immediatley and in such a way that the next would be taker of freedom will not soon forget what is in store for him if he so much as even thinks of trying.
That is all there is to it. The nature of mankind is evil and his desire is to control. This does not apply to every single person, however it only takes a few to control the masses, especially if that few knows how to manufacture the support it needs.
Attempt to inform and be shunned.
No matter, she will learn the hard way.
I simply try to prepare those people who have my blood in their veins for what is coming. I do believe civilization is going to experience very soon am abrupt loss of the comfort and convenience that has allowed it to slouch into its current despicable state.
Well said and I presume the sleeping giant you refer to is the society/culture at large. The time for talk is over; it will no longer serve a purpose, but is it still “too early to shoot the bastards”???
Like Mark Levin has said, resist, delay, obstruct. Be like the freedom fighters of World War II...they resisted, delayed and obstructed when and where they could. It should be our motto..pass it on.
I don’t follow DeMint’s career closely, but I’ve always thought he was a good man.
Good idea. Everyone should vote honestly. And those who don’t should be exposed by those who do.
Never formally adjourn and allow this bastich to make recess appointments and issue illegal executive orders.
Adjourning the House or the Senate is terribly dangerous.
Matters not, if we don't have honest tabulation. Only an idiot would trust voting machines.
The RINOs wanted it, and they lost the election and destroyed the GOP in the process.Eff them all including Graham, McCAin and Karl Rove
Let the GOP die its ignoble death, and initiate USIP ( Tea) ( United States Independent Party-Tea), spread the conservative message in this style:
Bill Whittle Advice on how to respond to Obama propaganda Press questions:
Well, we have already had an instance where Obama declared the Senate to be in recess and made recess appointments. The GOP issued a few statements and then did nothing to stop the usurpation.
He nails it. We, the States, need to fight. And I hope he cosiders running for higher office. Their side is already gearing up for 2014. We can’t rest.
I am right there with him. Our biggest threat is our Pravda-media..and they need to be rebutted and challenged every single time. Letters to editors on local newspapapers, online blogs, calling TV stations, etc. by indidivuals. And the Tea Party groups are not dead. I meet with several in my area as all politics is local. We work on those issues as well as a broader agenda. The Left has a huge jump on us in that regard, they have natural organization efforts on campuses, unions, etc. We need to be able to do the same, taking our case to small groups at a time. We may have been in the minority this last election..but by no means was that an overwhelming minority.
DeMint: They generally believe in a collectivist, big government society, and they see the government as a key player in our economy and our culture. And anything we suggest otherwise is alien to them. So their paradigm is big government.
Istook: Youre talking about the paradigm of the liberal Democrats or the media?
DeMint: Its the same thing.
I am proud to have him as my Senator. I’d hate to lose him but I agree, I would like to see him run on a presidential ticket. He is a good fighter and his PAC has been working with ‘tea party’ state level races to get more conservatives in office downstream which is important.
I agree. Who gives a crap what the media and the race baiters say. It’s all going to be pro Obama all the time anyway. What do we have to lose by putting all on the table and going full negative on the POS? Tell it lime it is. Hes a commie trying to destroy American. There is nothing “nice” about him.
Will someone ever grow a set of balls in the RINO leadership? Pelosi has bigger ones than Boner!
I hear you. A lot of us have been prepping for collapse.
I like your fight .
You are correct .
Bonehead represents the Lobbyist elite class of DC and there clients .
His entire former staff are lobbyists and they feed him
Power and control and he keeps the tax dollars flowing !
Now, Senator, that's not a nice thing to say about House and Senate Republican leadership, is it?
You forgot “Back off, vultures” . . .
We are reliving the Lincolnesque FedGov power grab of 1861. The only way to fight now is to mass Conservative power at the state level and fight on even terms up to and including secession.
“The GOP and conservatives have failed to advance their ideas and philosophies.”
If that’s true, then explain why republicans and conservatives control 30 states, which is up from 25 in 2010.
Explain why nearly 1,000 rats have been thrown out of state legislature seats and state-wide political offices since 2010.
Sarge, you make good points to reinforce the notions of voter fraud in the 2012 Presidential election and collusion between the R&D parties.
Apologies, sergeantdave; I’ll take those stripes back now.
What is needed is AMERICAN JOBS.
Bring back US jobs now. Stop sending American jobs overseas.
And bring back jobs which have been exported.
Some people around the edges of conservatism are now going to read the tea leaves and jump to the stronger horse. They will see better opportunities for themselves in trying to ingratiate themselves in the government sector than in private business. They will become hangers-on and supporters of BigGov.
This will take us past the 51% tipping point. We are now living in a Euro-style Social Democracy and likely will for the rest of our lifetimes.
This isn’t just the GOP and it didn’t just happen now. What we’re about to experience is the culmination of 100+ years of an unrelenting push for the Progressive agenda. At the very least the war was lost decades ago when Progressives reached the tipping point in their infestation of acadamia.
I meant every congress person should vote honestly. Jim DiMint should vote his beliefs. Then he should expose those who don’t. Name names!
Who cares why any of that is the case?
Those republicans, as well as republicans in Washington, are utterly powerless.
They cannot do anything at all to resist the communist take over of the USA, so their existence is moot.
Let’s be proud of all the pawns we have on the board, meanwhile the enemy has all queens...
That is the sleeping giant I referred to, and the action that you speak of should have been taken as early as the 1920’s.
Allowing others to plot against your freedom because they have the right to do so is absolute suicide.
If a people is to remain free, then the enemies of freedom must know is no uncertain terms what the result of plotting against freedom is.
A fact that was well-recognized a half century ago:
"No Communist, Fascist, or any other totalitarian committed to the destruction . . . of the principles and practices of democracy should be permitted to teach in a democracy. Freedom does not imply freedom to destroy freedom." -- Dr. Clarence R. Decker, President of the University of Kansas City, 1949
Excellent. That is exactly right.
What those people are spreading is a very carefull crafted organic malicious code that is self replicating, self propagating, it exploits known flaws of the human psyche, and to allow it to exist and spread means that you will soon be outnumbered by it and held captive to it.
There are two remedies for this malicious code that a society can take. The first is to eliminate the sources of it immediately and without mercy. The second is to spread counter code in the same manner. Without any sources of counter code, there is no hope at all, because the few who do know the counter code will eventually die, and they will not be replaced because those replacements were never made.
Yes I know that I am comparing this to a computer virus and even an organic virus, because that is essentially exactly what it is.
True, until those state legislatures start contemplating secession.
