He said what?? (Chuck Schumer)
World Net Daily ^ | Jan 24,2014 | Susan Jones

Posted on 01/25/2014 4:14:20 PM PST by digdem

(CNSNews.com) - Although the tea party's influence is "undeniable," it is not inevitable -- and it must be crushed for the good of the nation, Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) argued in a long political speech on Thursday.

"They've won elections, stymied Democratic priorities and taken a sledgehammer to programs that are important to tens of millions of Americans," he complained.

Among other recommendations, Schumer suggested an IRS crackdown on funding for tea party groups. "We have to look at electoral reform," he said.

"Our very electoral structure has been rigged to favor tea party candidates in Republican primaries, even when the district or the state may not be that red."

Schumer said "the tea party machine" has a particularly strong influence on Republican primaries, partly because the far right turns out to vote; and partly because of gerrymandering -- "where Republicans have learned to capture state legislatures and then use innovative technology to draw districts where a Democrat could never be elected. -

Imagine the tea party actually having the nerve
to elect representatives, people who don’t vote
democrat! Oh the horror.

Schumer should be locked away for this.

I thought the TEA Party was a flash-in-the-pan, irrelevant, dead.

The Facist wing of the DIM Party is clearly worried, so everything has to be changed.

That would be something. Go after conservatives for wanting to exercise Article V, and then try to overturn Article II Section 1?

“Just the beginning of going after the electoral college.”
When the Electoral College is eliminated and all voting power then resides in the major metropolitan areas (Chicago, Detroit, Miami, etc.), this will tear this country apart. We fought a war over “no taxation w/out representation”, and it will happen again...

Cuomo, deBlasio, Schumer and a host of other MarxoFasicsts are taking off the masks and the gloves, and we are seeing what they really intend to do to us be revealed.

They see us as enemies of the state.

And as history teaches, they ARE going to act on it.

Gulags and genocide are in our not-too-distant future.

I wanted to post a Gadsden Flag so I did an image search on Ixquick and under 'image' nothing came up. I then used the search engine Devilfinder and got the same result. I didn't want to use an image from a flag company because they'll probably break the link. If no flag shows above that's what happened. I even searched on 'gadsden flag, free republic' and found several threads but no pics of the flag as it is above remained linked in them.

Is the Gadsden Flag being purged from the net? I don't do Google or Bing so maybe someone who does can see if they can get an image there. I also used the search 'don't tread on me' and got the same non-result.

What the Democrats are very good at is “laying the rhetorical groundwork” for a future circumstance. They clearly expect to be crushed in the midterm elections. They will then run to the courts for relief.

Just the beginning of going after the electoral college.

Schumer said "the tea party machine" has a particularly strong influence on Republican primaries, partly because the far right turns out to vote; and partly because of gerrymandering -- "where Republicans have learned to capture state legislatures and then use innovative technology to draw districts where a Democrat could never be elected.

"Hence, the Republican House member only has to look over his right shoulder and moves much further to the right than the average voter in his or her district would want."

The same thing can happen in Democratic primaries, Schumer admitted -- "but at the moment, it is far more exaggerated on the Republican side."

Oh yes, the commies do it but it is very very bad when the republicans do it...







It is what they are, mentally disordered.

Not right in the head.

There is no cure.

Many times I have posted this.

So, as it is said, one more time...





They are beyond help, they do not have the capacity to be educated out of communism disguised as "liberalism and progressiveness." They can not or refuse to see the destructive nature of communism disguised as "liberalism and progressiveness" they promote.

What the supporters of communist "liberalism and progressiveness" will destroy is the very nation that gave them their freedom. They will complain, demonize, belittle and protest when opposed for nothing other that preserving this Republic in it's original context "by the consent of the governed."

They will not stop destroying this nation of their own accord.

The only way to preserve freedom for American Citizens in this Republic is suppression of the communist supporters by some overwhelming means.

"Taking the high road" is rapidly becoming something to be put on the shelf for a while. It is now time to step up, get in their face and refuse any narrative other than they are worthless communist agenda bastards undeserving of a place in this Republic.





Worthless communist agenda bastards undeserving of a place in this Republic.












So, how?

One battle at a time and they will kick, scream, curse and fight the return of freedom and sane behavior every inch of the way. If some semblance of our former Republic can be restored they will require constant observation.



The communists will revert to demanding total control faster than can be understood by rational thought as rational thought is not understood by communists.




The supporters of communist "liberalism and progressiveness" will NEVER be normal freedom loving American Citizens.



NEVER

Just the beginning of going after the electoral college.

I think the liberals actually like the electoral college system...been playing on it's weakness for years...

They pretty much have 210 voted sewed up every national election...

That leaves them lots of money and resources to get the 60 more votes to win...

Soros funded an organization geared to winning as many elected Secretary of State seats as possible (Secretary of State Project)a critical position in certifying the electoral college vote in states...

I think libtards fear state legislations changing the laws so each state congressional district the candidate wins gets that electoral vote.....

That would vastly change the face of running a campaign and dilute the dems locked states...

I quit using Google a long time ago, and went to Bing search. That’s where I found the gif of the Gadsden flag you’re asking about.

Seems to me, if the image were being systematically purged from the web, Google and Bing would be the last places you’d find it, but they both have tons of them.

Thanks for checking. Ixquick searches Google and other engines itself and usually comes up with tons of images no matter what the search. To get the ‘no documents of that description’ message for both ‘gadsden flag’ and ‘don’t tread on me, flag’ (and variations thereof) just amazes me. Not even the commercial postings of it, which obviously exist, come up.

Who's talking unicorns and skittles? I'm talking about raising group morale, which has to be done, if we're to have any hope of winning this emerging fight. You can't do that by constantly telling people that they're powerless before the gargantuan, almighty state.

There isn't a military on the face of the earth that can defeat a home grown, armed insurgency, tens of millions strong, as long as that insurgency has the willingness to stand and fight.

The enemies of freedom know this, which is why they do everything in their power to defeat the patriotic right on the only battlefield on which they can win --- the mind.

Please do not render them aid and comfort in that endeavor.

….if we're to have any hope of winning this emerging fight. You can't do that by constantly telling people that they're powerless before the gargantuan, almighty state.

Until this people do II Chronicles 7:14 we have already lost the fight.

We cannot win against tyranny by our own strength or patriotism or whatever other physical/material thing men and flesh rely on.

Our culture has refused to take a stand against wickedness and evil being institutionalized. What makes you believe this same culture will take a stand against tyranny? Tyranny is the bastard son of a sinful culture and people gone astray from God to follow their own lusts.

Most have surrendered our national morality via apathy or indifference to agendas that gave birth to this tyranny.

There isn't a military on the face of the earth that can defeat a home grown, armed insurgency, tens of millions strong, as long as that insurgency has the willingness to stand and fight.

The only willingness I see out there is the one that complies with "laws" and "orders".

Unless and until the churches and this people turn to God first - any hope we have in being victorious over this domestic enemy is a hope built on a foundation of sand.

Before the War of Independence, the Colonists recognized they suffered a tyrant because of their sins and the work was on for national revival and repentance.

But there are no Jonathan Mayhews, Jonathan Edwards or George Whitefields now. Today we have Rick Warrens, Benny Hinns and Joel Osteens who preach the prosperity gospel, 'tolerance' and how not to judge wickedness instead of the message of national repentance.

God does not often save His People from the consequences of their sins.

We haven't begun to even acknowledge them yet. But despite all this - the rhetoric coming from the MarxoFascists is one that will lead to Gulags and Genocide unless and until this people turn en masse in repentance.

History is pretty clear about the direction we are going, and I do not see a deviation from that path we seem to be steamrolling down.

If this people need smooth and easy words to assuage the hard truth of where we now find ourselves - then they will in no wise be able to resist this enemy now ruling us for they will refuse to hear the truth that could save them.

We cannot win against tyranny by our own strength or patriotism or whatever other physical/material thing men and flesh rely on.

The white flag you wave, is yours alone. You don't speak for the rest of patriotic America, who can and will take back their country, as long as they stay resolute in their minds.

It's a lot tougher to do, with harbingers of doom like yourself, incessantly bleating out messages of hopelessness to their brethren.

If this people need smooth and easy words to assuage the hard truth of where we now find ourselves - then they will in no wise be able to resist this enemy now ruling us...

There you go again, putting words in my mouth. I told you the first time, I'm not talking about preaching skittles and rainbows. I'm talking about words that rally our people to find their courage. Words that inspire them to stand for all that this nation was founded upon, and to resist the burgeoning tyranny in front of us.

But you first have to believe in yourself and in the people. If you've already given up on yourself, then it's no wonder that you've lost hope that any other man retains his courage. You believe others cannot stand, because you yourself cannot.

Well, it's just not true. I don't care how eloquently you expound on your dismal conclusions of doom and gloom - they're in your eyes only. You won't convince me to stand down before the battle is even engaged, nor will you convince the majority of other patriots who read here every day. We love our country, and intend to do whatever it takes to preserve it, despite your best efforts to convince us to surrender.
