The Republican Party is nothing more than the servile junior partner of an entrenched bipartisan political establishment in Washington DC that does everything in its power to extinguish representative government and thwart the will of the American people.
In the Mississippi Republican primary run-off, Senator-For-Life, 76-year-old Thad Cochran was declared the winner over Tea Party-backed challenger Chris McDaniel by just over six thousand votes.
To secure his slim victory, Cochran not only received the full-blown backing of the Republican establishment and the amnesty-supporting US Chamber of Commerce, but he shamelessly solicited cross-over votes from traditionally Democratic voters, blacks and union members, who, like himself, support big spending and big government.
During the campaign, Cochran also adopted Democratic Party talking points about Tea Party candidates, leveling personal attacks against McDaniel, calling him an "extremist" and "dangerous."
Having acquired their candidate, the Republican establishment will, in November, attempt to intimidate conservatives with the usual general election blackmail, vote for Cochran or risk a Democratic majority in the Senate.
If turnabout is fair play, then Mississippi conservatives would be justified in using the same tactics that Cochran used against them, voting for his Democratic opponent Travis Childers.
There is a Cold Civil War underway between Americans who want to adhere to the Constitution and adopt responsible fiscal policies, and the party leaders, who wish to continue the practices of political expediency and crony capitalism.
Politicians now seek election, not to uphold the rule of law and serve the American people, but to obtain power. Both Republicans and Democrats parlay that power into influence, privilege and personal affluence by redistributing the wealth generated by ordinary Americans into their own pockets and those of their supporters.
All the traditional means for the American people to seek the redress of grievances have been largely blocked by self-absorbed, unaccountable permanent political elites.
The Republican establishment's investment in our corrupt political-media culture explains why they will go only so far in challenging the Constitutional violations and the anti-American policies of the Obama Administration.
Republican leaders will continue to hold hearings about Obama's mounting number of scandals, but will do nothing.
They know that revealing too much about Obama's background and behavior in office would disclose their own dereliction of duty and complicity to undermine the rule of law.
They know that the truth would topple the corrupt status quo and terminate their exclusive grip on political power, allowing the American people to regain control of their government. Like in Mississippi, the political elites will do anything to prevent that.
It comes as no surprise then that Cochran and the Republican establishment joined forces with the Democrats in feverish efforts to defeat McDaniel, who more closely represents the desires of the American people and the needs of the country.
America's de facto one-party state screams out for a genuine opposition. Conservatives, continually marginalized by the Republican establishment, should vote with their feet and walk away from a party that lacks both ideas and principles.
The Code of Ethics for U.S. Government Service, adopted by the House of Representatives on July 11, 1958 with the Senate concurring, resolved that it is the sense of the Congress that the following Code of Ethics should be adhered to by all Government employees, including officeholders.
1. Put loyalty to the highest moral principles and to country above loyalty to Government persons, party, or department.
2. Uphold the Constitution, laws, and legal regulations of the United States and of all governments therein and never be a party to their evasion.
No informed American can believe that the Congress, as an institution, adheres to those values.
Maybe there are some politicians who could join together and start doing so.

I've long held that we elect either a "Rockepub" or a "Rockedem." That is, the CFR & Trilateral Commission STILL are in control with all of it's Rockefeller roots attached. Now and then we manage to elect someone who wasn't "born" with an umbilical cord attached to either or both groups, but it isn't frequent.
We have a very rough road ahead folks....very rough. ONLY God can help us now, assuming he hasn't turned away from our nation already because as a nation we've chosen to ignore Him, His son, and his dictates that we are to live by.
Yes Fred, we lost our Republic quite a way back, maybe sometime in the 60's, when we were talked into the Vietnam "Conflict", and a generation of young men died in the jungles of that country. But since Roe v. Wade became the law of our land, in 1973, God has not been honored or even given a thought! So many so called Christian's say they believe in a woman's right to choose!...Well, what about God's right??? He says, "Thou shall NOT KILL!!" We as a nation of "Christians" no longer have the right to ask for God's blessing...we have deserted Him, and He is judging us! Until we confess our corporate SIN of defiance against The Lord Our God, we will be shaken, so all nation's will know that He is Righteous! There is a call from Anne Graham Lotz, with AnGel Ministries, to pray for our nation beginning July 1st through the 7th. You can go online to AnGel Ministries for more information... Please join in prayer and confession of our sin, and God will hear our prayer and forgive us.
So right on. I have wondered for a long time if the destructive weather we have been experiencing is "GOD'S" way of waking us up!!!
THERE IS ONLY ONE PARTY IN AMERICA ((((((((( THE COMMUNIST PARTY +++++ FORMALLY KNOWN AS PROGRESSIVES +++++ ))))))))) SOON TO BE THE COMMUNIST WORLD ORDER .
Well said and all very true, but nothing gets done. They keep getting away with it. It really is disgusting how you can't trust all these disgraceful so called politicians. The only one I trust is God. He is watching and one of these days they will all fall. One by one. That my friends you can be sure of.
BONNIE good luck...
Hammers, tonight Chris McDaniel told Sean Hannity that they've confirmed 1000 ILLEGAL votes in a single Mississippi county…. The state has EIGHTY-TWO counties -- this thing is HEATING UP!! MS Tea Party Leader found dead!
A retired NSA mathmetician said that voting machine votes could be changed 7% without mathematicians noticing. If they need more change more than that they have to do other things.
I hesitate to report anything because JoAnn got so mad at me, but so much damage is going on right now. On top of which our military has been ordered not to eat because they HAVE to observe Ramadan! Can you believe that? Do you want the rest od the news or not?
And congress is seeing the usurper as their master.
