The Conservative Review

Often our elected representatives talk one way and end up, over time, voting another way.  There is a new website “The Conservative Review” that does by far the best job of ranking politicians to see if they actually walk the walk as professed proponents of constitutional and conservative principles. You may be surprised to see where some of Representatives rank.

Recent polls are not looking good for Democrats in the fast-approaching November election:


Campaign tip for Democrats this fall.  Quick…pretend to be a Republican:


Narcissist-in-Chief, Barack Obama, has failed miserably in establishing a coherent US foreign policy.  He has committed “diplomatic malpractice.”:


Record low polling for Obama on foreign policy here: lows-obama-foreign-policy-feelingt-safe  And here:


The Obama presidency has been shaped by untruths (lies), misinformation (lies), cover-ups (lies) and outright falsehoods (lies):


The November elections are going to be “gloriously devastating” to the Democrats and the progressive agenda:

Senator Dirty Harry (D-NV)

We owe Obama and Reid a debt of gratitude.  That’s right; we owe them thanks for making the political atmosphere so toxic for Democrats that they are going to lose control of the US Senate.  Obama can campaign up until the day of the election and give all of the flowery speeches he wants.  Harry Reid can stand on the floor of the senate and spin his lies.  The Democrats are wasting their money and wasting their breathe.  Senator Harry Reid (D-NV) is  going to lose his gavel and become minority leader just like his dear friend Nancy Pelosi did.  The folks who gave us the unmitigated disaster that is Obama care are losing their political power, one by one, as it should be.

Mitch McConnell (R-KY) is set to become the new majority leader in the US Senate.  His Democrat opponent is turning to far left Hollywood to fund her failing campaign:

Harry Reid is facing a demotion.  Republicans are poised to win enough seats in the US Senate to take control:

Even liberals at CNN and The New York Times suggest that recent polls are looking “more grim” for the Democrats:

With the president looking weaker and the news getting worse, Democrat candidates are running out of time:

Republicans are also expected to increase their majority in the US House of Representatives:

The red state of Utah is set to elect the first ever Republican black woman to the US House of Representatives:

Obama is set to become a truly lame-duck president.  Hopefully, with the Republicans in control of congress, we can begin to bring to a close what has to be the most bizarre period in American history; the rein of Obama.  It will take many years to reverse the massive damage this one man has done to America.  Let’s begin to fundamentally change America back to its previous glory.

Obama On the Constitution

The most hypocritical president EVER. He is so systematic with the hypocrisy and lies that it easily appears to be all intentional from the get-go. See IS BARACK OBAMA PLOTTING A COUP?

Senator Sessions and Illegal Immigration

Background: The president, by presidential decree, has opened the borders and now plans to grant work permits to five – six million illegal immigrants. Democrat politicians expect, of course, that these immigrants can be purchased as reliable democrat voters.

Obama is Still Wrong for America

Romney was right!  Oh…he was also right on Obamacare.  It should have been repealed and replaced!  “Things run by government aren’t run very well.”

One of my favorite quotes is at the end of the Mall Cop movie when Paul Blart (actor Kevin James) says: “I think I’ll stick with what I do best.”  Apparently, it’s a favorite maxim of President Obama also.  As the world burns he will be vacationing in Palm Springs and fundraising for the losers at the Democratic National Committee:

Obama is frantically trying to complete his transformation of America before his time is up:

We refuse to transform!

Habitual liars and white-collar criminals in suits and dresses are leading our country to destruction.  For love of country…impeach Obama now and throw in Eric Holder for good measure:

Here comes the next Democrat Liar-in-Chief:

Romney on the VA Scandal and Iraq: I Told You So

Thomas Jefferson Quotes for our Time

Thomas Jefferson, our third President, was a great champion of freedom. It is thanks to him that we have the Bill of Rights, including the 1st amendment. He would not agree to a Constitution without it.

  1. A bill of rights is what the people are entitled to against every government on earth, general or particular; and what no just government should refuse, or rest on inferences.
  2. The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.
  3. Was the government to prescribe to us our medicine and diet, our bodies would be in such keeping as our souls are now.
  4. I would rather be exposed to the inconveniences attending too much liberty than to those attending too small a degree of it.
  5. “Laws that forbid the carrying of arms…disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes… Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man.” (Quoting Cesare Beccaria)
  6. The beauty of the Second Amendment is that it will not be needed until they try to take it.
  7. The policy of the American government is to leave their citizens free, neither restraining nor aiding them in their pursuits.
  8. No man has a natural right to commit aggression on the equal rights of another, and this is all from which the laws ought to restrain him.
  9. To take from one because it is thought that his own industry and that of his father’s has acquired too much, in order to spare to others, who, or whose fathers, have not exercised equal industry and skill, is to violate arbitrarily the first principle of association—the guarantee to every one of a free exercise of his industry and the fruits acquired by it.
  10. I think myself that we have more machinery of government than is necessary, too many parasites living on the labor of the industrious.
  11. When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty.
  12. I am not a friend to a very energetic government. It is always oppressive.
  13. The god who gave us life, gave us liberty at the same time: the hand of force may destroy, but cannot disjoin them.
  14. In matters of style, swim with the current; In matters of principle, stand like a rock.
  15. What country can preserve its liberties if its rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance?
  16. The spirit of resistance to government is so valuable on certain occasions that I wish it to be always kept alive. It will often be exercised when wrong, but better so than not to be exercised at all.
  17. Were we directed from Washington when to sow and when to reap, we should soon want bread.
  18. The legitimate powers of government extend to such acts only as are injurious to others. But it does me no injury for my neighbor to say there are twenty gods, or no God. It neither picks my pocket nor breaks my leg.
  19. The price of freedom is eternal vigilance.
  20. Of liberty I would say that, in the whole plenitude of its extent, it is unobstructed action according to our will. But rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. I do not add “within the limits of the law,” because law is often but the tyrant’s will, and always so when it violates the right of an individual.
  21. Liberty is the great parent of science and of virtue; and a nation will be great in both in proportion as it is free.
  22. He who knows nothing is closer to the truth than he whose mind is filled with falsehoods and errors.
  23. I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them.
  24. I have never been able to conceive how any rational being could propose happiness to himself from the exercise of power over others.
  25. To compel a man to furnish funds for the propagation of ideas he disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical.
  26. I’m a great believer in luck, and I find the harder I work the more I have of it.
  27. The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not.
  28. Most bad government has grown out of too much government.
  29. The man who reads nothing at all is better than educated than the man who reads nothing but newspapers.
  30. The two enemies of the people are criminals and government, so let us tie the second down with the chains of the Constitution so the second will not become the legalized version of the first.
  31. A wise and frugal government, which shall restrain men from injuring one another, which shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor and bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government.
  32. A free people [claim] their rights as derived from the laws of nature, and not as the gift of their chief magistrate.
  33. God who gave us life gave us liberty. Can the liberties of a nation be secure when we have removed a conviction that these liberties are the gift of God? Indeed I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just, that his justice cannot sleep forever. Commerce between master and slave is despotism. Nothing is more certainly written in the book of fate than that these people are to be free.
  34. History, in general, only informs us what bad government is.
  35. It is better to tolerate that rare instance of a parent’s refusing to let his child be educated, than to shock the common feelings by a forcible transportation and education of the infant against the will of his father.
  36. The natural progress of things is for liberty to yield and government to gain ground.
  37. Timid men prefer the calm of despotism to the tempestuous sea of liberty.
  38. I have sworn on the altar of God eternal hostility against every form of tyranny over the mind of man.

Trading Private Bergdahl

Without notifying Congress 30 days in advance as required by federal law the president has (yet again) acted unilaterally, in this case, to exchange five very dangerous Taliban prisoners for Bowe Bergdahl, a deserter and suspected Taliban collaborator. Senator Marco Rubio, a member of the Senate Foreign Relations and Intelligence Committees, has said the president “Believes He’s Become A Monarch Or An Emperor“.




Tom Cotton on Benghazi

Greg Walden: Americans deserve the truth about Benghazi



MEDFORD — U.S. Rep. Greg Walden (R-Hood River) released the following statement today after Speaker Boehner’s announcement that the House will vote to create a new select committee to investigate the Benghazi terrorist attack:

“Just this week, the White House was forced by a court to release new documents that show the Obama Administration blatantly misled the American people in the days after the terrorist attack in Benghazi. For nearly two years, the Republican-led House has worked tirelessly to get the truth about that night—when four brave Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens and Oregonian Tyrone Woods lost their lives—and its aftermath. Time and time again, the Administration has stonewalled the House and the American people, and it’s time for them to come clean. I support the Speaker’s call for a select committee on Benghazi. This is an extraordinary step, but it’s needed to force accountability from the Obama Administration and get the truth.”







Oregon’s Walden backs House speaker’s call for select Benghazi committee

WASHINGTON — House Speaker John Boehner on Friday declared he would schedule a vote to create a select committee to investigate the Benghazi attack, escalating a political battle that has raged since the final days of President Obama’s re-election campaign.

Boehner said U.S. officials misled the American people after the Sept. 11, 2012, assault on the U.S. diplomatic post in Libya that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans. He said emails released this week showed the White House has withheld documents from congressional investigators and asked, “What else about Benghazi is the Obama administration still hiding from the American people?”

“Americans learned this week that the Obama administration is so intent on obstructing the truth about Benghazi that it is even willing to defy subpoenas issued by the standing committees of the people’s House,” Boehner, R-Ohio, said in a statement. “These revelations compel the House to take every possible action to ensure the American people have the truth about the terrorist attack on our consulate that killed four of our countrymen.”

Republicans have accused the Obama administration of seeking to deceive the public about the true circumstances of the attack during the final months of the 2012 presidential campaign — charges which the president and other U.S. officials reject.

Rep. Greg Walden, an Oregon Republican and chairman of the National Republican Congressional Committee, issued a press statement supporting Boehner’s call for an investigative panel.

“For nearly two years, the Republican-led House has worked tirelessly to get the truth about that night — when four brave Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens and Oregonian Tyrone Woods lost their lives — and its aftermath,” Walden said in the statement . “Time and time again, the administration has stonewalled the House and the American people, and it’s time for them to come clean.

“I support the speaker’s call for a select committee on Benghazi,” he said. “This is an extraordinary step, but it’s needed to force accountability from the Obama administration and get the truth.”

For Boehner, appointing a select committee raises the profile of one of the Republicans’ main points of attack against Obama ahead of November’s midterm congressional elections, and on former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton ahead of what may be another presidential campaign in 2016. It could also unify the Republican approach, which showed fissures Thursday as two powerful GOP committee chairmen sparred over whether the military was prevented from responding to the attack.

Republicans have pointed a finger at one passage in particular among the 40 or so emails obtained by the watchdog group Judicial Watch through a Freedom of Information Act request. Three days after the attack, Ben Rhodes, then the deputy national security adviser for strategic communications at the White House, stressed the goal of underscoring “that these protests are rooted in an Internet video, and not a broader policy failure.”

The email is dated Sept. 14, the Friday before then-U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice appeared on the Sunday news programs and explained the Benghazi attack as a protest over a YouTube video that mocked the Islamic prophet Mohammed that was hijacked by extremists. Administration officials later changed their description of the attack and said references to a protest were inaccurate.

White House press secretary Jay Carney responded this week by saying the message was explicitly not about Benghazi but about the overall situation across the Arab world, where American embassies and consulates in several countries faced angry and sometimes violent demonstrations. U.S. officials insisted they’ve complied with subpoena requests.

Separately, the Republican chairman of the House oversight committee, one of several that have investigated Benghazi, said Friday he would subpoena Secretary of State John Kerry to testify about the administration’s response to the attack.

Rep. Darrell Issa said he wanted Kerry to appear before the panel May 21 to explain why the latest emails were omitted from previous administration submissions to Congress.

Issa has been the GOP’s most prominent investigator of the Benghazi attack. But his star witness at a hearing Thursday came under sharp criticism from a fellow California Republican, Rep. Howard “Buck” McKeon, who heads the House Armed Services Committee.

Retired Brig. Gen. Robert Lovell told Issa’s panel that U.S. forces “should have tried” to get to the Benghazi outpost in time to help save Stevens and the other Americans. Lovell blamed the State Department for not making stronger requests for action.

McKeon responded by saying Lovell didn’t serve in a capacity that gave him reliable insight into the available options commanders had during the attack, and repeated his own committee’s conclusions that the State Department didn’t delay a decision to deploy military resources and that the military couldn’t have made a difference.

Boehner said the latest documents to be released showed “greater White House involvement in misleading the American people” and amounted to a “flagrant violation of trust.”

He praised the House investigations up to now but said lingering questions and the administration’s lack of respect for congressional oversight required an escalation of the level of investigation.

A separate investigation by the Senate Intelligence Committee found the U.S. had insufficient security at the Benghazi post and spread the blame among the State Department, the military and U.S. intelligence for missing what now seem like obvious warning signs. It also faulted Stevens for not ensuring enough protection.

A senior Republican aide said Boehner was considering Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., to chair the select committee. The aide wasn’t authorized to speak publicly on the matter and demanded anonymity. It’s unclear when Boehner will schedule the vote.
