RIGHT-WING MOBS? SAY IT ISN'T SO, CONSERVATIVES!

RIGHT-WING MOBS? SAY IT ISN'T SO, CONSERVATIVES!

When I wrote a book about mobs and group-think a few years ago, I could honestly say that mob behavior existed exclusively on the left in America -- unless you count Oakland Raiders tailgate parties, which I do not. As described in Demonic: How the Liberal Mob Is Endangering America, the distinctive characteristics of the mob mentality include:

-- Slogans as arguments ("Bush lied, kids died!" "Keep your laws off my body!" "You can't hug a child with nuclear arms");

-- Imperviousness to facts (e.g., the left's refusal to abandon repeatedly disproved canards about Reagan's tax cuts causing the deficit, the Aug. 6th PDB (President's Daily Brief) stating anything relevant about 9/11, and Valerie Plame being an "undercover agent");

-- Acceptance of contradictions (I haven't heard a cavil from MSNBC about Obama's expansion of the Afghanistan war, use of drones and continued operation of Guantanamo -- all deemed "war crimes" in the Bush administration); and

-- Extreme emotional attachment to their leaders combined with a passionate hatred of putative enemies (the burning and decapitations of Bush in effigy, books and movies about Bush's assassination -- even as liberals' publicly discuss their sex fantasies about Clinton and Obama).

To my dismay, some of these mob characteristics can now be found in small pockets on the right.

For months and months, for example, I've been demanding facts -- not shibboleths or epithets -- from the anti-Mitch McConnell brigade.


Here are my facts:

(1) For more than a decade, Sen. Mitch McConnell has stood alone in fighting unconstitutional campaign finance laws, earning him the undying enmity of The New York Times. (The Times is probably the largest contributor to the Senate Conservatives Fund opposing McConnell.)

McConnell took on the entire MSM, as well as members of his own party, principally John McCain and President Bush, who incomprehensibly signed McCain-Feingold into law with the idle musing that the Supreme Court could strike down any unconstitutional parts. (It didn't -- until some of it was finally overturned in Citizens United.)

McConnell was the Ted Cruz of campaign finance laws, leading filibusters to block these outrageous infringements on free speech, writing op-eds and giving speeches denouncing them, and directly suing to have McCain-Feingold declared unconstitutional in McConnell v. FEC.

As McConnell explained (beautifully):

"(T)he political left has always faced an uphill climb in a country in which there are two self-identified conservatives for every self-identified liberal. ... In order to succeed in this environment, liberals have generally resorted to one of (three tactics): obscuring their true intent; pursuing through regulation and the courts what they can't through legislation; or muzzling their critics."

(2) As minority leader, McConnell managed to get every single Republican in the Senate to vote against Obamacare -- even "Strange New Respect" Republicans like John McCain, Susan Collins and Lindsey Graham. No other Republican leader has ever accomplished anything like that.

For example, under Minority Leader Bob Dole, seven Senate Republicans voted for Clinton's 1994 crime bill, which contained the assault weapons ban widely credited with Republicans' sweep of Congress later that year. That's not merely a reflection of Republicans being worse back then: Among the "Ayes" were conservative John Danforth (Mo.) and William Cohen -- as good as you get from Maine.

The importance of a solid Republican vote against Obamacare can hardly be overstated. Thanks to McConnell, there is no confusion about which party is responsible for this widely detested law -- and which party you should vote for to get rid of it.

(3) McConnell tricked Obama into accepting the only spending cuts to the federal government in more than half a century.

Obama originally proposed the sequester on the assumption that its provisions were so harsh, Republicans would never accept it. But McConnell called his bluff and, for the first time since Eisenhower's first term, a bill was signed into law that would impose large-scale spending cuts on the federal government.

Even Ronald Reagan didn't cut federal spending!

McConnell did -- and that was with a Democratic president and a Democratic majority in the Senate. (Imagine what he could do with a Senate majority!)

Unfortunately, that deal was lightly thrown away by Rep. Paul Ryan last month, after he was bamboozled by the stupidest person in America, Sen. Patty Murray. Ryan claimed he jettisoned the spending cuts in order to restore military spending.

I'm sorry, but who cares about military spending as long as Obama is president? At the rate he’s going, Obama might use our military to attack England.

In any event, about a week after Ryan scuttled McConnell's historic budget cuts, Obama's defense secretary announced plans to reduce the Army to its smallest force since before World War II. Good work, Paul!

While we're on the subject, Ryan also supports giving the Democrats 30 million new voters with amnesty. But I don't see the shyster "tea party" groups or talk radio charlatans trying to take out Ryan. Only the guy who cut government spending for the first time in 60 years is on the hit list of the Senate Conservatives Fund and the rest of the fake tea partiers.

(4) On the most important issue -- immigration -- McConnell not only voted against Marco Rubio's amnesty bill, but at the moment, he may be the only thing standing between us and a scheme to import 30 million new Democratic voters. As House Speaker John Boehner works feverishly behind the scenes to push amnesty through, McConnell recently announced that there would be no immigration bill in 2014 (thank almighty God).

There are breathless headlines all over the Internet claiming, "McConnell Supports Amnesty!" but when you click on them, the links don't work and the claims don't make sense.

In fact, over the years, McConnell has voted for:

-- preventing legal immigrants from collecting food stamps (1997);

-- a border fence (2006); and

-- English as the official language of the U.S. government (2007).

He also voted to block federal funds from being sent to so-called "sanctuary cities" for illegal aliens (2008). The only amnesty McConnell ever voted for was the one signed by President Reagan in 1986.

I know this from looking up McConnell's actual voting record, as opposed to reading nonsensical jeremiads against McConnell on the RedState blog.

True, McConnell is bad on guest worker programs, but if that's the test, the only Republican senator worth a damn is Jeff Sessions. I don't disagree, but I wish conservatives would mention that to their elected representatives once in a while.

Like Ted Cruz. According to The New York Times, Cruz supports "a path to legal status," with "the goal of allowing (illegal aliens) to stay," and expressly rejects Mitt Romney's idea of "self-deportation." (Cruz Tries to Claim the Middle Ground on Immigration, Sept. 12, 2013.)

McConnell has never said anything that bad on immigration.

Those are facts. Here's the counter-argument from the anti-McConnell crowd: HE'S A RINO! HE'S AN ESTABLISHMENT REPUBLICAN! HE'S BEEN A TERRIBLE LEADER! MITCH LIED, KIDS DIED!

Ladies and Gentlemen, there you have all the attributes of a mob: Slogans in lieu of logic and evidence, beliefs impenetrable by facts, emotional hatred of the "enemy" and the acceptance of wild contradictions. Isn't Paul Ryan dreamy? Let's run Ted Cruz for president! We love Reagan ... But we hate McConnell for voting with Reagan!

Nothing good has ever been accomplished by a mob.

NATIONAL HARBOR, Maryland — Appearing at a panel with Eagle Forum’s Phyllis Schlafly across the street from the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) on Saturday morning, conservative columnist Ann Coulter joked that Republicans pushing for amnesty are actually racist because increased immigration would depress the wages of black and other minority workers.

“My whole life I’ve heard ‘Republicans are racist, don’t like black people, don’t care about black people,’” Coulter said. “I never believed it until I read Marco Rubio’s amnesty bill.”

” - - - the oligarchs have no use for the commoner and will not give a damn about them. They will use their robots and drones to maintain their dominance. - - - “

Hmmmmm - - - - - ?

This COULD be a valid description of Obamanation, but just what is an “oligarch?”

Webster puts it this way: “ ol-i-garch, n. any of the rulers of an oligarchy.”

Not much help there!

Webster, again: “ol-i-garch-y, n. 1. a form of government in which the ruling power belongs to a few persons. “

Okey-dokey, now take the good old USA with its “of the people, by the people and for the people” type of government - - - - ?

Hmmmmmm - - -? :

* Ruler # 1 is Soetoro-Obama, CIC of Obamadrones;
* Ruler # 2 is Reid, gatekeeper of the US Senate;
* Ruler # 3 is Roberts, rubber stamp Judge for Rulers # 1 and 2; and
* Ruler # 4 is Boehner, loyal House doormat to Rulers # 1, 2 and 3.

Hmmmmm- - - - ? I guess it all depends on what one’s definition of the word “few” is - - - - .

FORWARD !

[BTW, have you ever noticed that the Obamanation command “FORWARD !” ALWAYS is toward the Financial Cliff?]

The con-artist challenge by Democrats to RINOs to “Fix” the failed Federal Medical Insurance Law, Obamacare, is now approaching a decision point: April Fools Day, 2014.

Always eager to do nothing unless it is something that might make the Democrats hate them less, the GOP Establishment is actively searching for ways to help “their best friends across the aisle” on the failed Obamacare Law which is set to fail April Fools Day, 2014.

The GOP-E has recently picked up Romney’s “Torch of Tyranny” (Romneycare), and are happily working on their own version of Federal Medical Inurance called “RINOcare.”

Will the TEA Party Reps. in the US House rise up and replace “Doormat for Obama” Boehner, and then ABOLISH the RINOcare replacement of Obamacare, or will everyone just sit on their hands and be happy to be everybody’s fool, again?

Romney is hoping that Boehner’s RINOcare prevails, as it will allow Romney to run again as the GOP-E Nominee in 2016.

BTW, why are so many RINOs so determined to continue the financial destruction of America by advocating Federal RINOcare?

Obamacare has proven to millions of Americans that Federal Medical Insurance will always be doomed to fail, a lesson ignored by our sorry Federal RINOs.

FORWARD !

While it may be true its also true that experienced politicians know how to game the system by voting for things they know will be removed or changed in committee.

Thanks for posting this Coulter Puff Piece on Son-of-a-Mitch McConnell, the RINO Coward Senator from Kentucky.

“Pretty Face” Coulter does not mention the central fact of McConnell’s aiding and abetting the Obamanation: McConnell bailed out Reid by proposing temporary budget extensions, which have allowed Reid and Obama to spend whatever they have wanted to without approving a single Federal Budget in five years.

Son-of-a-Mitch deserves all of the ire that can be heaped upon him.

The Cave-In, Doormat, RINO Cowards in the US House and Senate are the ONLY reason that Soetoro-Obama has been so successful in the last five years at “Fundamentally changing the United States of America.”

And now the line in the sand is drawn, “Pretty Face” Coulter, which side do you choose to stand on?

Coulter didn't just all of a sudden, out of the blue decide to defend McConnell. I tell you now, Coulter has been paid off. If you could investigate this, you would see she received a big fat check from a source close to McConnell. She took the money to write this article. There is a word for woman who take money to provide a service. We are on to you Ann. Now we know what you are.

I agree with her that we don’t want to become like the left but she’s also trying to manipulate the truth just like the left.

She’s assuming that we’ll read what she says and not give any further thought to it but this ain’t my first rodeo.

Which she has done for a long time now. As I have said in other Coulter posts, I was a huge fan. I bought her books and loved her columns.

But when I look back and compare her words to her deeds, there is a WHOLE lot of contradiction. And IMO, which I believe her history bears out, she is never again to be trusted. Not openly.

Did "a source close to McConnell" pay her for the article below also?

..........

October 30, 2013

Democrats would never have been in a position to pass Obamacare if both sides of the Republican Party hadn't helped them win elections. The establishment Republicans screwed over our party with their greed, incompetence and lassitude, and the conservative purists screwed our party by running candidates who could not possibly win.

True, the tea party also gave us the majestic Mike Lee, Ted Cruz and Ron Johnson, among a few other improvements. But was Dick Lugar really the biggest problem in the U.S. Senate? Wasn't Claire McCaskill a bigger problem?

And why are so many conservatives today burbling about the alleged deficiencies of Republican Sen. Mitch McConnell -- while ignoring the actual crimes of Democratic senators like Mary Landrieu from Louisiana, Mark Pryor from Arkansas and Mark Begich from Alaska?

All those Democrats voted for Obamacare -- and they're all up for election next year in states that could easily go Republican. If any one of these senators had voted "no" on Obamacare, it would not be law.

By contrast, McConnell not only voted against Obamacare, but presided over a Senate minority in which every single Republican voted against Obamacare, even that idiot McCain. Kentucky only seems like a red state because McConnell keeps winning elections there: It went for Clinton twice and has had a solid run of Democratic governors since 1947, interrupted by one-term Republican governors only twice in 66 years.

But McConnell is in hot water with Kentucky's "9/12 Project" -- a group with enough marketing savvy to have a name that no one understands.

The project's executive director, Eric Wilson, is hopping mad with McConnell because, when given a choice between raising taxes on all Americans or raising taxes only on those individuals making more than $400,000 a year, he chose to raise taxes only on the high earners.

It's the easiest thing in the world to be a purist, denouncing everyone else as a sellout and hack, while other people do the hard work of getting elected in blue states and preventing even rotten Republicans from voting for Obamacare. You want McConnell to stop all tax hikes? Give him a majority in the Senate.

I’m for amnesty because it was the government who encouraged illegal imitation. Right after the last amnesty that Reagan signed that I was against the government didn’t do anything I could see to prevent illegal immigration. In the early nineties I was hiring illegal immigrants cause that was who state job agencies sent out for job request. When I complained that the documents didn’t even look like the guy I’m filling out their i9 form I was threatened to have EOT job discrimination investigation initiated. After that I never asked questions just complied with i9. Amnesty is justice as far as I’m concerned. Ann is right.

If Ann was anything like the old Ann Coulter we used to know and love, she would be railing day and night against Mitch McConnell for not initiating impeachment hearings against Obama which he so richly deserves for the many high crimes and misdemeanors he’s committed.

The IRS scandal alone would have energized the old Ann to write a book by now.

This reminds me of the scene in ‘’One Flew Over the Cukoo’s Nest’’ where the irrepressibly wild and crazy mental patient Randall Patrick McMurphy wakes up after a lobotomy. We know the Establishment has prevailed, and Randall Patrick’s spirit has been lost. How did the Establishment in the form of Mitch McConnell finally prevail over Ann Coulter and make her lose her wild and crazy spirit? I don’t know, but it’s sad.

I wonder if Ann is remotely aware of their undercut of the Republican in Alaska to back Murkowski and put her back in the Senate as a Democrat ally. That vote might have been better to have kept in the party. Any problems with Republicans in Virginia openly supporting the Democrat over Cucinelli or Lugar undercutting the man he lost to when it came to for the general? The ONLY purity tests in the Republican party is in the beltway crowd protecting their gravy train.

With that said - she's off the mark here, no doubt.

She is right there is a right-wing mob just as moon batty as anything on the left. If I have a piece of property and I built a fence 25 year’s ago a foot in side my neighbors property and nobody challenge it till my neighbor sales the property and the new owners want me to move the fence that’s too bad. The government knew and did nothing. If you ask what that says to the legal immigrants they’re empathetic too cause they know US immigration is broken after dealing with them. The only thing that needs clarification is how amnesty gets implemented and defined. If the rw moon bats want to keep loosing election they should continue.

I read this on the townhall blog

Geez, Ann didn’t mention this one:
McConnell on Obamacare:

In an interview with WYMT-TV on Tuesday evening, McConnell admitted that he can see parts of Obamacare working. While he stands as a vocal opponent of Obamacare, Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) does not disagree with the entire policy.

In an interview with WYMT-TV on Tuesday evening, McConnell admitted that he can see parts of Obamacare working.

“There are a handful of things in the 2,700-page bill that probably are okay,” McConnell said. “But that doesn’t warrant a 2,700-page takeover of all of American health care.”

So which is it? Some is ok but others are not - guess McConnell was NEVER for repeal or defunding to begin with.....the whole Senate excuse is null and void.....

Would Mitch McConnell be against amnesty if he faced no primary and no serious Democrat candidate?

McCain helped delay amnesty years when he had to fight off a primary challenge. The next push for amnesty was the Rubio push and they didn’t have Pelosi or Boehner in a position of strength.

McConnell could also lose the general if the Tea Party decides to vote against anyone but him.

If McConnell loses maybe Cornyn becomes leader, but better yet if Jeff Sessions becomes leader.

Even after voting against the bill, McConnell was on Meet the Press [7/14/13] expressing his hope that the House can go to conference with the Senate bill. Everyone knows that will not result in enforcement first.
On July 16, McConnell told reporters that the Senate had a good year, noting among other things, passage of the immigration bill.

[ If I have a piece of property and I built a fence 25 year’s ago a foot in side my neighbors property and nobody challenge it till my neighbor sales the property and the new owners want me to move the fence that’s too bad. ]

Yes, it is too bad.....for your ass. You were in the wrong so you should have to move it back onto your property. The reverse of this is of course relocating said fence one foot inside the property line on your side.
How do you like those apples, ace?

"A handful of things that are probably okay..."

In 2700 pages of legislation?

He is likely correct. Even liberals can't get it wrong 100% of the time (although they are working on that).

I'd wager most landfills have at least a couple of diamonds in them, too.

On balance, we still throw out the trash.

Look up "adverse possession". Whether we like it or not, so-called "squatters's rights" are real, and have been invoked to take property from the owners.

At the very least, be aware they exist, it can save your land, your cabin, etc.

Ultimately, the defense of your property boundaries (legally or otherwise) falls on you.
