Not that there is anything wrong dining at the WH with the president.

It must be coincidence.

I just called TRAITOR Wicker’s Jackson MS office and his D.C. Office, gave them my voting district county, and told them, that He will NEVER get MY VOTE again!

I emailed him. It will make no difference to him, he knows this is a strongly pro-2A state, and did it anyway. It was somehow worth it to him anyway.

The terrifying part is the silence of the lambs in the House.

It has been suggested that Boehner supports this bill, and is willing to, with just a small handful of Republican RINOs, join with the Democrats to pass it.

The fear is that he is that treacherous. A traitor to not just the Republican party, but to the US constitution.

If he does this, then being imprisoned in the US for the rest of his life is not good enough. He must be exiled from the United States and its territories, never again to be allowed to return, in life, or even in death, to our shores. Any honors given him by the government should be taken away, and his name should become synonymous with treason, like Benedict Arnold.

Regardless of how this turns out when the dust settles, I WILL support any candidate that runs against every single one of those traitors. I have never voted for or supported a democrat in my entire adult life, but if any of those craven lickspittles are not challenged in the primary election, I will even support a loon democrat.

There are about 4 conservatives that I would support and vote for if they were to run for president, but if they don’t, I WILL EVEN VOTE FOR CLINTON. Yep, I have gone over the wall and off the deep end. ‘What does it matter now’.....the damn republicans are no better than the damn democrats.

Members of the Senate and the Congress do not have the legal authority to vote our God given and constitutionally protected rights down/out.

There is a difficult but proper way to amend the constitution, this isn’t it.

“SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED”, you stupid SOBs...

That means there will be other opportunities for filibustering or killing the bill.

Why couldn't the Republicans just stay true to the Second Amendment, say "Shall Not Be Infringed" and kill this monstrosity dead NOW? Why do they ALWAYS kick the can to a position where they ALWAYS lose?

“What do we do when our side is full of TRAITORS? “

I don’t like my answer, but here it is.

—Vote against them and support ANYONE that runs against them. If need be, support another RINO or democrat loon. THESE specific people-there damnable TRAITORS need to lose their career at whatever the cost.

I do not support the notion of a bloody Civil War, but I do believe it will come and when it’s over, win or lose - things will most certainly be different. The good People of this once great country are under daily attack, they are being pushed, pushed, broken and pushed again — there WILL eventually be pushback....and it will be bloody.

Jeff Flake of Arizona, to whose campaign I contributed (several times when his campaign said they were in need), is proving to be no Ted Cruz. Cruz is a man of integrity—Flake is starting to show just the beginnings of becoming a John McCain Republican. There’s got to be something in the public water supply that Flake has been drinking that does not have a corresponding effect on Cruz.

I called Senator Cochran's Jackson office and his DC office and thanked him for standing up for our 2nd Amendment by voting against Cloture.
I also ask him to help us find another conservative to take Wicker's place, since I will be voting against Wicker, no matter who runs against him.

Seriously !

Unless we soon get on with the business that this national CF has been building toward for 50 years, Constitutional patriots will end up as the pow's who never fired a shot.

Surely a semi-old man with a lame leg and glasses can be some kinda useful, and by God the willingness is there.

But here we sit, individually defiant, but with a collective yet disorganized thumb up our ass.

wtf, over . . .

I have had it with almost every single one of them.

I am sick of the lies, the corruption, the theater, the treason, the destruction of our way of life, the daily push and attempts to keep us on edge, crisis after crisis - even when none exists.... I am sick of all of it.

But, there is good news, in that I have found a way to save time and wasted thought. I used to wakeup in the morning faced with the effort of trying to figure out who all I have learned to hate. Now when I wakeup, I simply hate them all. ;>)

"Out of those 16 GOP Senators Alexander, Collins, Isackson and Wicker dined with Obama at the White House last night"

Why is it when I think of these Charm Dinners Obama is avidly hosting for various members of Congress I think of Judas dining with Christ at the Last Supper?

At least Judas, who pretended he was a Disciple but in reality was the arch traitor and betrayer of all time, later went out and hung himself.

Those Republicans who are wining and dining with Obama the anti-Christ pretend to be GOPers....but in reality they are traitors to the Party plus they are betrayers of those who elected them and betrayers of the Constitution and their country as a whole.

They are too cowardly to hang themselves. They'll just sit back, enjoy their cushy sinecures, their DC elite cocktail parties, their adulation and power....and privately laugh at us poor unsophisticated schlumps out here in Wonderland

See my #51 response to mrsmel

Not saying mooching with Obama changed their minds (or votes).

I am sure Obama routinely sent out invitations to mingle with Republicans. In fact, just last month, he dined with 12 different GOP Senators in a DC ritzy restaurant.

Can you think of any other time Obama so jovial, so 'generous' with 'the enemy'?

But Judas didn't stand to have a lifetime benefit of health care and retirement at full pay plus ???? Nor were a bunch of Stalinists threatening him with mayhem [purge?]...

You know, the more time that passes, the more one suspects that the GOP is not the old party anymore... it is totally infiltrated by Marxists who try to convince us it is all a football game, and if our side wins that is all that matters -- not what we win.
