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.

Penny who was the MsTea Party leader that was found dead?
A name was not yet given. Should they say, I will let you know.
You are most welcome.
Obama is only one man, Penny. Congress and the Supreme Court are 544. No one in either of those branches of our government has taken the usurper to task over anything. They've walked hand in hand with him for over 5 years now.
No one in either branch has questioned his constitutional eligibility even though he refused to offer any proof. With a British Subject his father, there's no way he can be a natural born citizen of the USA.
That can only mean they are all in the game with him. The primaries are going to be interesting this year. It's also going to be interesting to see if we have another election in our nation in 2016.
I knew it. This has been lurking around the corner, ready to slam us like a tsunami. We talked about it. I warned you. Everything inside of me is twisted up into knots. The thought of this actually happening rips through me like a cold, steel blade.
I need help and I need it now, not at your leisure. I'm going to tell you exactly why but you're not going to like it.
Obama's warning flare has been sent up. The "O" so-imperial one at the bully pulpit issued his decree: he's going to push amnesty harder than he ever has with mid-term elections just months away.
If he doesn't, the Democrats are in trouble at the polls and Obama's master plan to destroy America will be in serious jeopardy. You already know that it's win at any cost with him. He's a brutal dictator.
Obama is dead-set on granting amnesty to millions of illegals. Can I count on you to help us stop his next huge push? We really need you. Please don’t let us down now.
Let me ask you something.
Those 36,007 criminal illegal aliens were charged with sex crimes, drug crimes, burglary/theft, drunken driving and MURDER. Under Obama’s directive, ICE has released murderers, rapists, kidnappers and drug dealers.
They had more than 87,000 convictions combined! My neighborhood used to be a safe place. Now I worry.
These animals have broken the law: drug violations, sexual assault and domestic violence convictions, and aggravated assault are just a small part of the long list of infractions—and he wants to "reward" them with citizenship. It's criminal!
I can't stand there and allow this to happen.
But without you I can't do a thing. In fact, I have to stop all our efforts. Everything will come to a screeching halt and amnesty will sail through. Guess what? Then you and me will be footing the bill.
If you don't want that to happen then donate today so we can sock it to 'em in Washington: stonewall them at every turn…prevent any advances in amnesty…take it out so it’s dead in the water.
We are the last hope, the only hope. It is time to finish what we started.
Please...I need you to understand that we are in severe jeopardy. Our livelihoods and our safety and that of our children and families are in serious danger.
A few days ago Obama proclaimed “We’ve got maybe a window of two or three months to get the ball rolling in the House of Representatives.”
To add more fuel to the fire, Valerie Jarret, Obama's top advisor and architect of evil, is claiming that Boehner promised the White House he would push it through.
I’ve never felt so betrayed in all my life.
Patriot, that means we have a lot of work to do and I need to know if you’re on-board. You can let me know right here.
Look, there are too many traitors in Washington--we can't count on them to get the job done. It's is entirely up to us. We can defeat them—it's brutal but we’ve done it before.
We know how sneaky Obama is and how corrupt his administration is.
If he gets even a whiff of potential failure he will shift into the do “whatever it takes” mode to make amnesty happen—even if it means he has to break the law and play dirty.
He just wants the votes—that's all there is too, it. I would not be one bit surprised if he does it to gain support for a third term. Under any circumstance do not underestimate him!
You already know how dirty he plays so you know what we’re up against. We’ve been busy getting the campaign organized, getting letters, faxes and emails developed and calls ready to go.
There’s a special “Operation American Eagle” unit ready to deploy into Washington to wage war on amnesty. I can’t tell you who they are without breaching security protocols but I can tell you it is an elite team of special operatives who know how to get under our lawmakers’ skin.
I’ll be blunt. These campaigns cost a fortune to execute. If we can’t raise the funds, we can’t do anything. If we miss the upcoming deadlines we’ll have no say in anything.
Who else do you think is going to act on your behalf? We are at a standstill now until we hear from you--and time is running out. Please...do what you can, give what you can even if it's small.
I mean, really…have you seen anyone else fighting this except the Tea Party? We have your back, please have ours. Donate today. If you don’t, we’re doomed and that’s the bottom line.
Who will explain that to our children? To American workers whose jobs will be stolen or wages lowered? To our loved ones?
Are you prepared to say, “I could have done something and I didn’t. I’m ashamed and it is now one of the biggest regrets of my life.” Donate today.
Time is running out. Prominent Republicans are talking about an August deadline. That’s right on our tail—just three months left. Mark my words the pro-amnesty supporters will pull out all the big guns. Can you help us pull out ours?
You can expect an amnesty blast like you’ve never seen out of Obama and his cronies. It’s going to upset you, make you so angry you could spew venom, cause you a lot of sleepless nights. But I ask you: What’s worse:
Knowing you fought so hard, did everything you could…or knowing you could have fought and did nothing instead?
There is so much work to be done and you can’t sit and do nothing. Anyone can do that…but you’re not just anyone. You are a red-blooded America…a true Patriot who cares about Constitution and country.
These illegals are the very ones who burn our beloved flag, hang it upside down, DEMAND citizenship and lay claim to having civil rights!
They feed on our government system and expect handouts—demand them because they think we OWE IT TO THEM. How dare they!
Stop the push for amnesty. Stop the hemorrhaging of criminals into our backyards, schools, medical offices. You—or your loved ones—could be their next victim.
Twenty-two Senators recently denounced Obama for nullifying our immigration laws. They’re angry at his utter disregard for the Constitution, rule of law and refusal to defend the integrity of our borders.
We can turn more lawmakers in the House and Senate to our side. We just need your support to make it happen.
So, are you going to rise to the occasion? Are you going to be a Patriot and a hero...or someone who opens the door to amnesty and lets it happen?
I need to know. You’re either with us…or you’re not.
